Parties – Hamburg – Hamburger CDU sets course in educational policy – politics


Hamburg (dpa / lno) – Two years before the general election, the Hamburg CDU has set its direction in school and education policy. A leading proposal from the party executive entitled “Efficient, high-quality and inclusive education and training for Hamburg” was unanimously approved by the 140 delegates of a state committee on Tuesday evening. In the 20-page paper, the CDU advocates, among other things, the stronger integration of daycare and school. In addition, more respect is demanded of the teachers, said the state chairman Christoph Ploß.

School policy is of central importance for the coming general election. The lead motion calls for a “fixed basic knowledge base” to be laid down in the primary school curricula. The transition to secondary schools must be flexible according to the learning level of the students. In addition, the CDU wants to campaign for increased efforts in recruiting teachers and digitization.

Every fifth child in Hamburg cannot write, read or calculate properly at the end of elementary school, said Birgit Stöver, the education expert for the parliamentary group. “Around 20 percent of the fifth graders start with a deficit that can hardly be made up.” In order to compensate for this, education in Hamburg must start earlier. “We want to strengthen day-care centers and elementary schools and think together.” A demand for a senator for day care centers and schools, originally contained in the draft of the state executive board, was deleted before the meeting of the state executive board.

The training of teachers must be strengthened and the attractiveness of the teaching profession increased. “Teachers need relief for this,” said Stöver. In addition, the loss of lessons at Hamburg schools must “finally” be reduced.

Respect is also part of strengthening the teaching profession, said Ploß. In the past this was taken for granted. “Unfortunately, that’s different in many parts of the city today.” He also pointed out that many elementary school students did not meet the standard standards in reading, writing and arithmetic. There needs to be targeted support here. “The first years are the most important years in a person’s life. If you don’t keep up and don’t speak the language, you have big problems.”

Ploß and CDU parliamentary group leader Dennis Thering used their reports to the party conference to severely criticize the red-green Senate of Mayor Peter Tschentscher (SPD). The coalition partners are not pulling in the same direction when it comes to port, transport or energy policy, said Thering. “This Senate of SPD and Greens is hopelessly divided and where they are not divided, they are incompetent.”

The CDU, on the other hand, is clearly committed to the port, stands “without ifs and buts” in favor of the construction of the A26 East and also has a clear edge when it comes to internal security, he said. That will also pay off for some up until the 2025 state elections, “when we want to take over government responsibility for our city again.”

Weapons – USA accuse Russia of violation of disarmament treaty – Politics


Washington (AP) – The United States accuses Russia of not fulfilling its obligations under the “New Start” disarmament treaty. The German press agency learned this from NATO circles. Among other things, the US broadcaster CNN and the “Wall Street Journal” quoted from a corresponding statement by the US State Department.

Russia refuses to allow inspections on its own territory, violating its obligations under the Nuclear Disarmament Treaty. “Russia’s refusal to facilitate inspection activities prevents the United States from exercising important rights under the treaty and threatens the viability of US-Russian nuclear arms control,” the statement said.

The New Start disarmament treaty is the only remaining major arms control agreement between the United States and Russia. The treaty limits the nuclear arsenals of both countries to 800 delivery systems and 1,550 operational warheads each.

In February 2021, US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed to extend New Start until 2026. However, an important element of the treaty, the mutual control of the respective nuclear arsenals, has been suspended since the summer. Russia complained that it was no longer able to make inspection trips to the USA because of the sanctions imposed as a result of the Ukraine war, and for its part canceled western inspections.

The 44-year-old mother of five just recently underwent her 16th (!) breast surgery. Katie had her first beauty procedure at the age of 18, when she had her breasts enlarged from their natural cup size of 70B to a C cup.

Over the years, Price has had her breasts enlarged, reduced, and enlarged again – real breast yo-yo. However, the model is currently opting for the extra plump look and, according to an insider, has allegedly even set a goal of one day having the largest breasts in the United Kingdom. The British “Sun” reported.

According to the source, Katie had 2,120 milliliter implants used for this purpose. In an interview with moderator Nigel Farage (58), the reality star admitted: “These are the biggest breasts I’ve ever had.”

Just stupid: The model should be anything but satisfied.’. A source told The Sun: “Katie is suffering from her new boobs because they are too big for her small body and they give her a constant backache.” She is even considering having her implants removed again.

Currently, however, Price seems to have made friends with her new acquisition if you look at the result of the latex shoot.

The 44-year-old in an interview: “People never understand why I have my bust size enlarged because I never show it. The only exception is OnlyFans.”

No wonder – Katie can still cash in there!

Journey through DR Congo and South Sudan: Pope calls for end to violence


As of: 01/31/2023 8:57 p.m

For six days, Pope Francis wants to campaign for peace in the DR Congo and in South Sudan. Upon his arrival, he called for an end to the violence and exploitation. People have high hopes for his visit.

Hundreds of thousands of people cheered Pope Francis in Kinshasa. The capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the first stop on his six-day tour of the country and South Sudan. Congo’s President Félix Tshisekedi received the head of the Catholic Church with military honors in the presidential palace.

There Francis spoke out for peace and an end to the bloody conflicts in the country and in many areas of Africa. One cannot get used to the decades of bloodshed, he told Congolese government officials and diplomats. “Violence and hatred must no longer have a place in anyone’s heart or on their lips, because they are misanthropic and anti-Christian feelings that paralyze development and lead us back to a dark past.”

“Hands off Africa!”

He demanded that foreign powers stop exploiting the country. After political colonialism, an equally enslaving economic colonialism was unleashed, the pontiff said:

Hands off the Democratic Republic of the Congo, hands off Africa! Stop choking Africa: it is not a mine to be exploited, nor land to be plundered. May Africa herself be the protagonist of his destiny!

The trip, which the Pope describes as a “pilgrimage of peace,” was supposed to take place last summer. However, it was postponed due to health problems. It is the first papal visit to the Central African country in 37 years. Above all, the struggle for raw materials and rival military groups have displaced up to 5.5 million people within the country, more than in any other country in Africa.

Difficult security situation

Because of the very fragile security situation, the Pope remains in the Congo in the capital, Kinshasa. There, the security measures were massively increased during the visit: the police and army exchanged views with Vatican security forces and even the American FBI in advance. On Wednesday, Francis wants to hold a public mass at the N’Dolo military airport, to which up to two million believers from all over the country could travel. Half of the approximately 105 million inhabitants of Congo belong to the Catholic Church – the country on the equator thus has the most Catholics in Africa.

An originally planned visit to Goma in eastern Congo was cancelled. Dozens of armed militias are active there. Violence has recently escalated, with rebels repeatedly carrying out bloody attacks.

Following his visit to Congo, the 86-year-old plans to travel to South Sudan. Fighting there has hampered implementation of a 2018 peace deal meant to end a civil war. In the world’s youngest country, Francis will be joined by Archbishop of Canterbury in England Justin Welby and a representative of the Church of Scotland Iain Greenshields. The three church representatives want to demonstrate a united Christian commitment to South Sudan.

Francis wants to mediate

On his journey, Francis also wants to meet displaced people. Refugees are a big concern for the Argentine. The morning before departure, the Pope met people in Rome who had fled Congo and South Sudan. As Francis flew over the Sahara on the way, he asked for a prayer for those who “crossed the desert in search of some prosperity and freedom” and “didn’t make it”.

Many people hope that the Pope’s visit can help concretely improve the situation in the countries. He had already achieved this in South Sudan: in 2019 he invited the president and vice-president, who are rivals, to the Vatican and urged an end to the fighting. After that, the enemy politicians worked together.

1860 Munich: Who follows Michael Köllner? Finch? happy? | Sports


An era has ended!

The lions released coach Michael Köllner (53) – after 1180 days in office. Just one win in the last seven games was not enough. The dreams of promotion are now too far away. The 1:2 against Dresden, one defeat too many.

The reaction afterwards: Priceless! Goalkeeper with a cheeky unfair throw-in

Sport boss Günther Gorenzel (53) is now temporarily taking over the coaching job in a dual function. He is supposed to lead the training with assistant coach Stefan Reisinger (41/is currently doing his football teacher) and will possibly also be on the sidelines in Oldenburg on Sunday (1 p.m.).

Gorenzel: “Köllner left deep marks here, I owe him the greatest thanks. He put his heart and soul into this club.”

But the fact is: For weeks he has been crunching behind the scenes, and as early as November contact was made with potential successor candidates. It is now being intensified. But it is unclear whether the lions will opt for the cheap version or the Champions League solution.

► As BILD already reported, Champions League winner Thorsten Fink (55/last Al Nasr Dubai) is a candidate. Gorenzel has been in contact with the ex-Bayern professional for a long time. But does the tight 1860 budget even allow for a nimble Fink commitment?

There is still no sign from investor Hasan Ismaik (45) whether fresh money will be made available. An early contract extension with main sponsor “Die Bayerische” is in the room. A decision has not yet been made here either.

► Therefore, in addition to Fink, there is also the bargain plan with ex-coach Torsten Fröhling (56/last U21 coach at Schalke). He saved the lions from being relegated to the third division in the 2015 relegation against Kiel, is known for his good youth work and is considered a motivator.

The lions are under a lot of pressure. Seven points behind second place can only be made up if the club quickly gets the curve. The next few weeks will show whether Köllner’s expulsion came too late.

► The farewell of a player has also been fixed since yesterday. Lorenz Knöferl (19) will be loaned out to Carl Zeiss Jena until the end of the season.

Corona: Does an infection permanently weaken the immune system?


The cold and flu wave is stronger than usual this winter. According to immunologists, these are mainly catch-up effects, as fewer pathogens circulated during the pandemic.

The causes of the strong wave of colds in recent months are being hotly debated in specialist circles. One theory is that corona infections have weakened the immune systems in the general population or are causing children’s immune systems to age prematurely.

As an immunologist said to “Zeit Online”, most people do not currently have to worry that their immune system will work less well after a corona infection.

According to immunologists, the intensity of the cold and flu waves this winter are mainly catch-up effects, since these pathogens circulated less during the pandemic.

RS virus, influenza or a flu infection – the wave of colds that has swept through Germany in recent months has been extraordinary. After two winter seasons, mainly from the Pandemic were shaped, there are now other pathogens that, according to the “Mirror” are in focus. is completely forgotten corona but not. The news magazine reported that the main discussion was whether past corona infections made people more susceptible to others Diseases would have done. This would be a plausible explanation for the force of the cold wave this winter.

Does the immune system age prematurely due to Corona?

The thesis that one or more corona infections permanently damage the immune system is put forward by various actors. For example, Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) recently spoke in the “Rheinische Post”. According to Lauterbach, some studies would clearly show that people who have had several corona infections are often affected by an immune deficiency, the duration of which is not yet known.

The Charité virologist Christian Drosten said “Daily Mirror”that the aging of the immune system in children after a corona infection is much more advanced than one would expect. He refers to immunological findings. “One can now ask oneself pointedly whether an unvaccinated child after infection might have the immune system of an 80-year-old at 30,” Drosten told the newspaper.

In most cases, the immune system regains its balance

But not all experts assess the situation as dramatically. So said the immunologist Christine Falk “Time Online”that the existing findings are often overinterpreted and are incomprehensible to laypersons anyway. Therefore, these should first be discussed in specialist circles.

Of course, a corona infection can put a strain on the immune system and have a short-term effect. However, the immunologist Sheena Cruickshank explained on the portal “The Conversation”that such temporary changes as a result of an infection are normal. She added that for most people there is no evidence to suggest damage to the immune system as a result of a corona infection. Christine Falk also commented on this in an interview with “Zeit Online”: “In my opinion, there is currently no reason for most people to worry that their immune system will work less well after one or more corona infections.”

Masks not only protect against Corona

the “Mirror” reported that, according to immunologists, the most recent waves of colds are mainly catch-up effects of the pandemic, since the various respiratory pathogens circulated less strongly during the corona years.

The most important argument against the thesis that the cold wave was so strong due to massively weakened immune systems is explained by immunologist Falk in “Zeit Online”: “One would then not only expect an increase in RSV infections, but much more severe infections, such as those with atypical pathogens that do not normally make people ill.”
