Staying active even in times of crisis

Staying active even in times of crisis

The corona pandemic challenges our society and our coexistence. How do young people deal with it and what role does youth work play in it?? These are questions that are not necessarily in the focus of the public. The nationwide "juco" study a research team from the universities of frankfurt and hildesheim found out from a survey of 6,000 young people that "young people want to be listened to" and that "their changed everyday lives and their worries are hardly noticed".

In addition to family and school, it is the clubs and associations, but also youth clubs and youth centers, where many children and young people spend their time, get involved and maintain the most varied social contacts with their peers.

Sandra ender, head of the city’s social work department and deputy manager at iso e.V., remembers well the time of the first lockdown, when the people in charge were faced with the question: "what now??" And "what can we do to get in contact with the young people and to maintain the relationships that have been built up??" In addition, there was the question of how to support the situations of the families at home. At the time, there was only one way to go: the entire work was converted to digital formats within two weeks.

Going to the polls: now is the time!

Going to the polls: now is the time!

The time has come, the federal elections are just around the corner. So it’s time to start thinking about the right cross. But somehow it seems that the election has long been decided. Debates about the upcoming election day are more present on television than at the dinner table. But the election doesn’t just affect those whose heads are poking out for our attention on election posters. But also us. You and me.

The question who I will vote for was quite difficult to answer. This year i may elect the federal parliament for the third time. And I have the feeling that it is even more difficult for me to make a decision than in the years before.

I have done the election-o-mat, have read party programs, have compared old voting results. And somehow I had with each party something to criticize. So it’s easy to say "the politicians do what they want anyway" or "my vote won’t change the result anyway".

The female also ring, who likes to visit other outdoor pools in his free time out of professional interest.

Hochstadt murder victims remain unforgotten

Hochstadt murder victims remain unforgotten

Who doesn’t know the saying: "he’s got a few bodies in the cellar"?." For a man from hochstadt, this saying became reality in september 1985, when he tried to lower the floor level in the basement of his house on schlossberg and stumbled on human bones.

One of the first to arrive on the scene was karl-heinz feuerlein from the local heritage society. What goes through your mind when you suddenly find yourself standing in front of the remains of human life?? "You are gobsmacked when you see the crowd", feuerlein answers the question "there were already quite a few needles lying around free."

However, it quickly became clear to him that the skeletons were not of recent origin. "They were not the first. We knew that they had to be from the time of the swedish wars around 1633. The swedes were in town for two to three days. When they left, the people of hochstadt came back and buried the dead. I’m sure there are more", he adds.

The supervisory authority bafin has already sent a circular to the major banks asking them to comment on the plans. In the U.S., wills are already required for rough money houses.

According to the european commission, eu countries had to provide about 1.6 billion euros between 2008 and 2010 to save financial institutions from collapse. The fear was that even the bankruptcy of a single major bank could lead to the collapse of the world financial system due to its global network.
