Transport ministry’s cycling helmet campaign called out by SPD’s women’s wing

An advertising campaign by Germany’s transport ministry to persuade cyclists to wear helmets has sparked accusations of sexism, as it features a model wearing just a helmet and underwear.

With the slogan “Looks like shit. But saves my life”, the advert features a profile-shot of Alicija Köhler, a competitor in the gameshow Germany’s Next Topmodel sporting a violet coloured helmet and a lacy bra.

small entrepreneurs being able to pursuit their idea are essential for the creativity of an economy – established big companies are like big ships: they are pretty hard to change and adapt – so it is no “wonder” that the big US but also German car manufacturers are in serious trouble over the lack of allowed creativity.

Auschwitz museum tells visitors to be more respectful when attending the site

(Expect the worst when reading the article, wwe're living in the 21st century, and suffer from the disrespect of this era.)
In a statement shared on Twitter on Wednesday, museum authorities said tourists should reconsider coming if they do not respect those who were killed there, specifically calling out those posing for photos to share on social media, apparently ignoring the bitter history of the site.

"There are better places to learn how to walk on a balance beam than the site which symbolizes deportation of hundreds of thousands to their deaths."

US ambassador to Germany raises leeriness after comment on military spendings

"Any US diplomat who acts like a high commissioner of an occupying power must learn that our tolerance also knows its limits," said Kubicki, who is also one of five deputy speakers of Germany's Bundestag parliament.

Carsten Schneider, caucus manager of the Social Democrats (SPD) within the parliament, told the German news agency DPA on Tuesday that "Mr Grenell is a complete diplomatic failure."

That's why Trump ordered him to represent the US in Berlin - it's something both have got in common.

"If one keeps an overall view, many comments made are more coherent than those of the American ambassador, if he thinks he has to comment on something every week," said Grosse-Brömer.

NYT reveals Deutsche Bank loaned more than 2 mn. dollars to Trump, despite warnings

Over the years, Drumpf used loans provided by Deutsche Bank to build skyscrapers and other high-end properties, the Times reported. For the German bank, its relationship with Drumpf was key in building its investment-banking business, the report said.

Drumpf’s relationship with Deutsche Bank has come under scrutiny in the U.S. The New York attorney general’s office and the Democratic-controlled Intelligence Committee and Financial Services Committee in Congress have been looking to the president’s financial ties with the German bank.

Would it be worth to dissolve the NATO?

But that position became inoperable. For the first time in the history of the alliance, its de facto leader left unspoken whether it would greet an “armed attack” on an ally as an attack on itself. The American president, astonishingly, refused to say whether his nation would honor its NATO obligations to small countries under the Russian gun.

Some observers see no cause for alarm in the shift Drumpf has brought about. In the New York Times this week M.I.T. professor Barry Posen called for shuttering NATO since it only remained in business after the Cold War because it had a “good brand” that could be put in the service of “international social work” (to borrow a phrase from Michael Mandelbaum).

The world has changed a great deal since Eisenhower’s day. But in fundamental ways, the laws of power remain unchanged. And a world without the Atlantic alliance fully armed—morally and materially—for the challenges to come will not be a world that enjo... show more

Menschen, die Züge mögen // People who like trains

1. India Today:

Around 10.30am on Tuesday, as the woman jumped to pick up the note, few coaches of an approaching metro passed over her, Hindustan Times said, quoting officials.

Last month, a commuter had jumped on tracks of the Red Line, leading to disruption of services between Shahdara and Dilshad Garden stations.

2. Bayerischer Rundfunk:

Nach ersten Ermittlungen der Polizei versuchte die Frau, ihren Hund wieder einzufangen. Sie schlüpfte durch die geschlossene Schranke und rannte ebenfalls auf die Gleise. Dort wurde sie vom Zug erfasst. Die 53-Jährige war auf der Stelle tot. Die Bahnstrecke Garmisch-Partenkirchen nach Seefeld wurde für rund drei Stunden gesperrt. Für Bahnreisende kam es zu erheblichen Behinderungen.

Urban Honeybeez Are Precise Pollution Detectivez

A new study on pollution reveals that proof isn’t in the pudding — it’s in the honey. Research carried out in partnership between the nonprofit Hives for Humanity and the University of British Columbia showed that honey collected from urban beehives can accurately measure how polluted a city is. This means that honey isn’t just a byproduct of bee regurgitation — it’s also a way to closely monitor changes in the environment.

Writing in Nature Sustainability, the study’s authors explain that this study is the first of its kind in North America. They specifically analyzed honey collected from beehives in six Metro Vancouver neighborhoods — testing for levels of lead, zinc, copper, and other elements. The good news for Vancouver was that the chemical composition of this Canadian honey demonstrated that the city is “extremely clean.” But that doesn’t mean that human influence didn’t affect the honey at all — they found that the... show more
euro zone in recession - Draghi special loans for banks bot not for the real economy

German MEP Manfred Weber to meet Hungarian president Viktor Orbán

(Talkin' 'bout standin' your ground - it has also been said that he was the only member of the EPP to vote against kicking Orbán out. Now, one has to read that he is going to meet this man, for whatever reason (I didn't read the article yet). Let's see what reason he has.)
"I'm hearing very different signals out of Budapest. What's positive, from my point of view, is that there's evidence of a certain reflection process," Weber told German paper Welt am Sonntag, noting that the Hungarian government said it would end its controversial taxpayer-funded anti-Brussels campaign.

Just because his parliamentary group said that they were going to kick him out because he has turned out to be a fierce autocrat doesn't mean he was about to change his behaviour towards his people. He just doesn't want to lose his participation in one of the largest groups in the EU, he would lose his influence in the EU. This has got nothing to do with changes, it's a cheap trick, for which the simple-mi... show more
