Wie die Bundesrepublik akzeptierte, was nicht beabsichtigt war

first_img AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] Nicht zuletzt wegen der Naziverbrechen in der Vergangenheit wurden viele Bürger darüber unterrichtet, dass Frieden und europäische Integrität wichtiger sei als die Wiedervereinigung Deutschlands. Einige Intellektuelle waren gegen die Wiedervereinigung, da sie annahmen, dass Deutschland, wie im Dritten Reich, wieder Verbrechen begehen könne und dass umliegende Länder Deutschland fürchten müssten. Bürger selbst befürchteten einen Ansturm von Ostdeutschen in den Westen, und dass die Kosten der Wiedervereinigung auch das Sozialsystem destabilisieren würde. Haltung der Bürger während der Teilung RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Als jedoch im November 1989 die Berliner Mauer fiel, waren der Wille und das Verlangen nach einer Wiedervereinigung auf westlicher Seite recht schwach. Die meisten Bürger hatten sich damit abgefunden, dass die Wiedervereinigung irgendwann in der Zukunft möglich sei. Für manche war es aber auch ein Tabuthema, da in der deutschen Gesellschaft solche Äußerungen häufig in Verbindung mit einer nationalistischen Einstellung gebracht wurden und man gerade dadurch die Wiedervereinigung verhindern würde. Nach dem Mauerfall zeigte sich deutlich, dass die Mehrheit der Westdeutschen eine Art verwandtschaftliches Verhältnis zu den Ostdeutschen zeigte. Aber es waren nicht so viele, die den Mauerfall wirklich begrüßten. Viele fürchteten, dass die Wiedervereinigung vielleicht auch das stabile Sozialsystem gefährden könnte. Die meisten Bürger waren nicht gerade anderer Meinung. Umfragen hatten ergeben, dass rund 80% Hoffnung auf eine Wiedervereinigung hatten. Die Zahl derjenigen, die der Wiedervereinigung eher kritisch gegenüberstanden, ließ von 1964 mit 45% bis 1988 um 0.5% ab. Darüber hinaus glaubten nur 3% der Befragten wirklich an eine mögliche Wiedervereinigung. Sahen 1970 noch 68% der Westdeutschen Ostdeutsche als Landsleute, waren es 1987 nur noch 52%. 1987 sahen 40% der zwischen 16- und 29-Jährigen Ostdeutsche eher verwandt mit Österreichern, und nur noch 39% betrachteten sie als Landsleute. News Auch Intellektuelle hatten eher weniger Interesse an einer Wiedervereinigung. Der bekannte Philosoph Karl Jaspers sorgte für Unruhen, als er 1960 behauptete, dass der Frieden in Ostdeutschland und die Integration mit Westeuropa viel wichtiger seien als die deutsche Wiedervereinigung. Linke Intellektuelle sagten, dass die Teilung ein natürliches Ergebnis der Naziverbrechen war und dass die Wiedervereinigung auf keinen Fall so wichtig sei wie der Weltfrieden. Andere Intellektuelle wie Günter Grass, die an dem Traum einer sozialistischen Utopie festhielten, setzten die Kooperation der U.S.-Staaten mit Westeuropa mit der sowjetischen repressiven Dominanz über Osteuropa gleich.  Die Personen, die auf der Seite Ostdeutschlands waren, vertraten wenigstens noch die Meinung, dass sie eine „humanere Gesellschaft“ sei. News News Einstellung am Rande der Wiedervereinigung                Als die Berliner Mauer fiel, feierten die Menschen in Westdeutschland. Aber bereits ein paar Wochen später war diese Freude nicht mehr spürbar. Die meisten Westdeutschen hielten eine Wiedervereinigung nicht als notwendig oder wichtig, und nur die Hälfte von ihnen konnte sich mit der Parole „Wir sind das Volk“ an den Montagsdemos in Leipzig anfreunden. Wie die Bundesrepublik akzeptierte, was nicht beabsichtigt warcenter_img Trotzdem ist das kommunistische Regime gefallen und die Wiedervereinigung wurde ein Phänomen. Bürger in Westdeutschland bezeichneten dies als unausweichlich. Sie glaubten an das Versprechen der Politiker, dass dabei „niemand verlieren wird.“ Die Worte Willy Brandts sprachen dabei für die Mehrheit der Westdeutschen: „Es wächst zusammen, was zusammen gehört.“ News 40 Jahre nachdem die jeweiligen Regierungen in Ost und West etabliert wurden, bestand das System des Kalten Krieges noch immer weiter fort, und viele nahmen an, dass die Chancen auf eine Wiedervereinigung recht schwach seien. Es gab nicht viele, die die Wiedervereinigung für realisierbar hielten, geschweige denn für ein plausibles, politisches Ziel. Die CDU und die SPD verfolgten genau den gleichen Gedankengang. Zwar betonte die CDU die Klausel zur Wiedervereinigung, sah aber eine Wiedervereinigung nicht als ein realistisches „Endspiel“. Die SPD stritt zwar nicht ab, dass eine Wiedervereinigung  ein begehrenswertes Ziel sei, aber schloss aus, dass dies in näherer Zukunft überhaupt möglich sei. Die SPD sah eine „friedliche Verwaltung“ des geteilten Deutschlands als erste Priorität. Sie legte hohen Wert auf Austausch und Kooperation mit Ostdeutschland und vermied auch Kontakt mit ostdeutschen Dissidenten, um mit der Spitze des kommunistischen Regimes ein besseres Verhältnis knüpfen zu können.

Der Grund dafür lag vor allem im Vorwort des deutschen Grundgesetzes,  welches besagte, dass Wiedervereinigung und Frieden durch „Selbstbestimmung“ entstehen sollten. In öffentlichen Meinungsumfragen zwischen 1973 und 1988 sagten 69-77% der Befragten aus, dass diese Klausel bezüglich der Wiedervereinigung bestehen bleiben müsse.

Global speculative-grade default rate ends at 2.3% in Q2: Moody’s

first_img High-yield bonds face Covid-19 fallout Canada’s high-yield firms bested U.S. counterparts in pandemic: Moody’s U.S. high-yield default rate on the rise: Fitch The global default rate for speculative-grade securities held steady in the second quarter (Q2), Moody’s Investors Service announced on Wednesday. The Q2 reading of 2.3% was in line with the previous quarter, and Q2 2014, the New York-based credit rating agency says. Based on its forecasting model, Moody’s now expects the global speculative-grade default rate to finish this year at 2.6%. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Keywords High yield bonds center_img Related news James Langton “Looking ahead, we believe corporate defaults will likely remain low,” says Albert Metz, managing director of Moody’s credit policy research. “Despite the challenges from a potential interest rate action by the Fed and ongoing Greek debt problems, among other things, the corporate debt market is expected to keep healthy at least in the near term.” The rating agency says that it expects the default rate to rise to 3.0% in the U.S. this year, and to fall to 1.7% in Europe. In Q2, the speculative-grade default rate held steady in the U.S. at 2.0%, whereas, in Europe, the default rate fell to 2.0% from 2.2% in Q1. A total of 18 Moody’s-rated corporate debt issuers defaulted in Q2, down slightly from 20 in the Q1. In addition, Moody’s global distressed index, which measures the percentage of high-yield issuers whose debt is trading at distressed levels, declined to 14.5% in Q2 from 16.4%, the agency says.

Students for Transformation…Agents for Change…Says NTP’s Rev Al Miller

first_imgAdvertisements RelatedStudents for Transformation…Agents for Change…Says NTP’s Rev Al Miller Students for Transformation…Agents for Change…Says NTP’s Rev Al Miller EducationAugust 24, 2009 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Director, National Transformation Programme (NTP), Reverend Al Miller, has charged participants in the Students for Transformation (SFT) programme to be strong, solid youths, as they are the agents of change.Making his appeal at the recent Student Leaders Workshop at Jamaica House, Rev. Miller said that, “the greatest tool for transformation is education.”Rev. Miller challenged the participants to consider how youth leaders can transform schools to become zones of excellence and productivity. He also implored them to get students to believe in themselves, work hard to effect change, start a social revolution against negative behaviour, strive for excellence and demonstrate how to profile a model student.The National Transformation Programme, initiated over a year ago, aims at ‘culminating ideas on improving interschool cohesion and promoting student development and leadership skills through various projects’. The national core values, which underscore the programme’s mission are: truth, honesty, justice, love, peace, unity, savings and investment, responsibility, personal development, dignity of work, and respect and reverence for life.“The workshop is to create a smooth transition between outgoing student leaders and incoming student leaders, so as to have cohesion of ideas, aims and objectives that we will plan for the upcoming school year,” explained SFT Programme Vice Chairman and outgoing Head Boy of St. George’s College, Jason Curate.Director of Development, Planning and Monitoring, NTP, Mr. Fabian Brown, noted that the participants engaged in discussions to find strategies that will motivate and encourage them towards becoming positive role models in schools, so that schools can be transformed.“The programme has been very uplifting…I have seen changes in relations with various schools. We have even developed a devotional exchange programme between schools,” said Nicholas Haughton, graduate of Kingston College.center_img RelatedStudents for Transformation…Agents for Change…Says NTP’s Rev Al Miller RelatedStudents for Transformation…Agents for Change…Says NTP’s Rev Al Millerlast_img read more

Lynda Wilson recently offered a statement on legislation she pre-filed requiring all gubernatorial emergency orders to be approved by the legislature after 30 days. File photo “As the COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the health and well-being of men, women and children across our state over the past ten months, constituents from every region are wondering why the Legislature has remained on the sidelines,’’ Wilson said.Wilson (R-Vancouver), is Republican leader of the Senate committee on economic development and trade. She also served on the governor’s pandemic-related business-recovery task force until it was abruptly disbanded in May, after just five weeks.“On February 29, Governor Inslee issued the first emergency order due to coronavirus,’’ Wilson said. “Once an emergency is declared, the governor may issue orders pursuant to it. Under current law, there are two types of orders, one requires legislative consent, the other does not. This bill would require legislative review of all emergency orders.“This legislation would simply include lawmakers in the decision-making process and ensure that voices from across our state are heard,’’ Wilson added. “As the governor announces another extension of his stay-home order today, it shows why we must enact these protections now.”To view Wilson’s proposed legislation, go to https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=5039&Initiative=false&Year=2021AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : Mudslide closes Pacific Highway between La Center in Woodland Next : Concerned mom shines light on educators not wanting to reopen Camas schoolsAdvertisementThis is placeholder textlast_img read more

Cancer cells are comfy havens for bacteria: Weizmann Institute of Science study

first_img MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Cancer cells are comfy havens for bacteria: Weizmann Institute of Science study Read Article By EH News Bureau on June 8, 2020 Comments (0) News Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha WHO tri-regional policy dialogue seeks solutions to challenges facing international mobility of health professionals The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine story Share Add Comment anticancer treatmentsbacteriacancercancer cellsDr Ravid Straussmanmini-microbiomeWeizmann Institute of Science The research suggests that understanding relationship between a cancer cell, its ‘mini-microbiome’ may help predict potential effectiveness of certain treatments or may point, in future, to ways of manipulating those bacteria to enhance actions of anticancer treatmentsCancer cells are comfy havens for bacteria. That conclusion arises from a rigorous study of over 1,000 tumour samples of different human cancers. The study, headed by researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science, found bacteria living inside the cells of all the cancer types – from brain to bone to breast cancer – and even identified unique populations of bacteria residing in each type of cancer. The research suggests that understanding the relationship between a cancer cell and its ‘mini-microbiome’ may help predict the potential effectiveness of certain treatments or may point, in the future, to ways of manipulating those bacteria to enhance the actions of anticancer treatments. The findings of this study were published in Science.Dr Ravid Straussman, Department of Molecular Cell Biology, Weizmann Institute of Science had, several years ago, discovered bacteria lurking within human pancreatic tumour cells; these bacteria were shown to protect cancer cells from chemotherapy drugs by ‘digesting’ and inactivating these drugs. When other studies also found bacteria in tumour cells, Straussman and his team wondered whether such hosting might be the rule, rather than the exception. To find out, Dr Deborah Nejman and Dr Ilana Livyatan in Straussman’s group and Dr Garold Fuks, Physics of Complex Systems Department, Weizmann Institute of Science worked together with a team of oncologists and researchers around the world. The work was also led by Dr Noam Shental, Mathematics and Computer Science Department, Open University of Israel.Ultimately, the team would produce a detailed study describing, in high resolution, the bacteria living in these cancers – brain, bone, breast, lung, ovary, pancreas, colorectal and melanoma. They discovered that every single cancer type, from brain to bone, harboured bacteria and that different cancer types harbour different bacteria species. It was the breast cancers, however, that had the largest number and diversity of bacteria. The team demonstrated that many more bacteria can be found in breast tumours compared to the normal breast tissue surrounding these tumours, and that some bacteria were preferentially found in the tumour tissue rather than in the normal tissue surrounding it.To arrive at these results, the team had to overcome several challenges. For one, the mass of bacteria in a tumour sample is relatively small, and the researchers had to find ways to focus on these tiny cells-within-cells. They also had to eliminate any possible outside contamination. To this end they used hundreds of negative controls and created a series of computational filters to remove the traces of any bacteria that could have come from outside the tumour samples.The team was able to grow bacteria directly from human breast tumours, and their results proved that the bacteria found in these tumours are alive. Electron microscopy visualisation of these bacteria demonstrated that they prefer to nestle up in a specific location inside the cancer cells – close to the cell nucleus. The team also reported that bacteria can be found not only in cancer cells, but also in immune cells that reside inside tumours. “Some of these bacteria could be enhancing the anticancer immune response, while others could be suppressing it – a finding that may be especially relevant to understanding the effectiveness of certain immunotherapies,” says Dr Straussman. Indeed, when the team compared the bacteria from groups of melanoma samples, they found that different bacteria were enriched in those melanoma tumours that responded to immunotherapy as compared to those that had a poor response.Dr Straussman thinks that the study can also begin to explain why some bacteria like cancer cells and why each cancer has its own typical microbiome: The differences apparently come down to the choice of amenities offered in each kind of tumour-cell environment. That is, the bacteria may live off certain metabolites that are overproduced by or stored within the specific tumour types. For example, when the team compared the bacteria found in lung tumours from smokers with those from patients who had never smoked, they found variances. These differences stood out more clearly when the researchers compared the genes of these two groups of bacteria: Those from the smokers’ lung cancer cells had many more genes for metabolising nicotine, toluene, phenol and other chemicals that are found in cigarette smoke. In addition to showing that some of the most common cancers shelter unique populations of bacteria within their cells, the researchers believe that the methods they have developed to identify signature microbiomes with each cancer type can now be used to answer some crucial questions about the roles these bacteria play: Are the bacteria freeloaders on the cancer cell’s surplus metabolites, or do they provide a service to the cell? At what stage do they take up residence? How do they promote or hinder the cancer’s growth? What are the effects that they have on response to a wide variety of anticancer treatments?“Tumors are complex ecosystems that are known to contain, in addition to cancer cells, immune cells, stromal cells, blood vessels, nerves, and many more components, all part of what we refer to as the tumour microenvironment. Our studies, as well as studies by other labs, clearly demonstrate that bacteria are also an integral part of the tumour microenvironment. We hope that by finding out how exactly they fit into the general tumour ecology, we can figure out novel ways of treating cancer,” says Dr Straussman.Dr Straussman’s research is supported by the Roel C Buck Career Development Chair; the Moross Integrated Cancer Center; the Maurice and Vivienne Wohl Biology Endowment; the Fabricant-Morse Families Research Fund for Humanity; the Chantal D’adesky-Scheinberg Research Fund; the Rising Tide Foundation; and the European Research Council.
