“The special thing is simply that it exists.”
The New York get-together for emigrants
Feature by Katharina Menschick

Survivors who fled Nazi persecution to the USA have been meeting in Manhattan’s Upper East Side since 1943. In the weekly get-togethers, people eat, laugh and talk together, about culture, politics and personal matters, the past and the present – in person and in German. After the death of the long-time hostess Gaby Glückselig in 2015, Trudy Jeremias took over this role.


Shipment still 30 Days load

“I really wanted to save the regulars’ table and I still do,” says Trudy Jeremias in her cozy apartment in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The regulars’ table, to which the 95-year-old invites every Wednesday, has existed since 1943. It was founded by emigrants from Germany and Austria. In addition to the language, the regulars share “memories of similar events in life. Of the escape or emigration and also of the time before 1938,” as Arnold Greissle-Schönberg relates. The grandson of the composer Arnold Schönberg, born in 1923, was, like Trudy, expelled from Austria shortly after the “Anschluss” due to his Jewish origins. Marion House is also one of the regular regulars’ table guests. She recently celebrated her 98th birthday. At the age of 16, she fled Berlin on a Kindertransport.

Over the years, numerous New Yorkers by choice and visitors from Austria and Germany have been included in the round of regulars. Just like the annually changing young volunteers from Austria who record the stories of survivors of the Shoah in interviews for the memorial service association.

The regulars’ table is a fixed point in the everyday life of its members. When face-to-face meetings were no longer possible in March 2020 due to the corona pandemic, it was moved to the Internet. The young historian Katharina Menschick was our guest for over a year and talked to Arnold, Trudy and Marion about their lives.

ICT coordinators get separate status – De Standaard

ICT coordinators get separate status – De Standaard

After a year in which the laptop and the internet were more important than ever, Minister Weyts wants to give the ICT coordinators their own status.

“The ICT coordinators have done a fantastic job during the corona crisis,” said Education Minister Ben Weyts (N-VA), who talks about “hidden heroes of distance learning”. This was often the computer science teacher, but sometimes also the geography or physical education teacher. With a separate statute, ICT coordinators must be able to fully focus on ICT.

The money for ICT coordination is also increasing by 70 percent: from 32 million euros per year to 54 million euros per year. This also increases expectations. ‘The ICT coordinators must not only contribute technically, but also pedagogically and policy-wise to digital education in the school,’ says Koen Vandenhoudt, chairman of the Flemish ICT coordinators League.

Vandenhoudt speaks of a milestone. ‘Until now, the government has focused on the performance of networks, hardware and software. Now she also invests in people.’ At the same time, he also puts the reform into perspective: ‘A 70 percent increase from very little is still little.’ In addition, there is still uncertainty about the salary expectations for coordinators in the new statute.

For the time being, IT professionals from the private sector will not be able to cash in on their seniority with a career switch to education as a coordinator, something that Jo Brouns (CD&V) advocates from the majority. He doubts whether the necessary expertise can now be attracted.


Beware of Vladimir

Beware of Vladimir

The first bilateral summit between the leaders of the United States and Russia took place this week in Geneva, Switzerland. The meeting concluded in less time than expected, but it yielded a strong conclusion. Both nations have a common point on which new encounters are going to be built: neither wants a new cold war like the one experienced during the 20th century. Starting from this fundamental assumption, now comes a long way of attempts to explore other aspects in common such as economic, political and military. There is a whole Human Rights agenda to build.

There are many cases of international politics such as Syria, Afghanistan or Iran that will surely remain at opposite extremes. China’s political and economic position is the ball rolling on the playing field. The United States needs China and vice versa. The Russians need it more. Little by little it is seen how other powers want to get closer. The United Kingdom, which after Brexit is negotiating agreements with different nations of Europe individually, has expressed the need to advance in Asian terrain. The powers of the world are entering a preliminary post-pandemic phase and a period of growth, expansion and new alliances is coming.
President Biden was candid about high expectations after the meeting. “We are not old friends, it has been pure work” rescued the press that covered the event. In any case, he was very cautious and preferred not to talk about threats. The clear issue on the table by both leaders was that of possible cyber attacks. The United States considers these types of activities to be violations of its national sovereignty. Russia did not explicitly commit to avoid possible new technological violations, as it is supposedly not a state policy.
The United States reiterated never having used these new forms of weapons. It surely has many digital ways of doing significant damage to Russia’s tech infrastructure. Biden said he is willing to use these methods if he is forced to. A very different speech from the idealistic one he wasted in the recent Democratic campaign against Trump. “Putin knows” was the closing sentence. Is this new panorama of global digital tension a computer nonaggression agreement? They agreed on a list of at least 16 untouchable cyber-attack infrastructures, which include platforms for essential services such as water or energy distribution.

All the countries of the planet will see the advance of this detente for a long time. We have already done what we had pending: to change the Ambassador in Washington and the Chancellor. At least we already have a government official whose messages are answered from the White House.
The Russian president at the end of the meeting quoted one of his favorite writers: Leo Tolstoy. This important novelist considered that happiness does not exist as an absolute concept, that there are only “flashes of happiness”. Putin said there was some “glimmer of confidence and hope” as a result of the summit with Biden. I would take care of Vladimir, as the famous salsa song says. It’s not going to be that you’re going crazy.


one more reason to take out credit insurance

one more reason to take out credit insurance

Credit insurance is a tool that allows us to prospect clients and markets to establish a secure business strategy that helps us grow. It has many functions, beyond just hedging against default, and all of them make even more sense when economic uncertainty dominates the context. For this reason, among many others, the economic conditions of the market are one of the incentives that motivate companies to seek protection for their portfolio in credit insurance.

When there is a deterioration in market growth expectations, as in the current context, or it is desired to complete a specific operation that presents a higher risk than usual, credit insurance is used as a preventive mechanism against delinquency or to non-payment by customers.

Those who know the usefulness of this financial tool understand its value and the positive impacts that are reflected in the income statement of companies. Definitely, they conceive credit insurance as a tool with which to protect cash flow and, at the same time, grow the business.

The truth is that, as we introduced, the protection provided by credit insurance goes beyond the guarantee of the collection of a commercial operation, although it is true that factors such as having a specialized recovery service, in the event that it materializes the non-payment, or the indemnification character if it becomes necessary, suppose enormous advantages for the cash of the company.

Thanks to credit insurance and its analysis mechanisms, companies can know the level of financial risk of their portfolio of clients and prospects; as well as the risk factors of the market in which your business operates, or plans to operate. With this information, companies can make credit decisions based on reliable information. Risk prevention, through continuous monitoring of countries, sectors and companies allows, therefore, to focus sales to the most reliable customers in payment matters.

Protecting cash flow is another of the fundamental aspects that credit insurance offers and that helps companies to market calmly and to be competitive and profitable. It allows them to focus on the important challenges of their business and expand their sales with confidence. And it is that, the definitive non-payment on the part of a client is a terrifying scenario for the company, and it is not only possible, but it is, unfortunately, very probable. For Colombia, for example, it is estimated that bad debts could grow 26% in 2021, compared to the previous year, which would mean a significant increase in defaults between companies. As default and non-payment occur more frequently than we imagine, they must be avoided at all costs. For it, credit insurance mechanisms are the perfect tool. Furthermore, if this is not possible, the unpaid amount will have to be recovered by undertaking recovery procedures, a service that is also included in this instrument, which finally includes compensation in the event that the recovery is not completed.

There are several companies specialized in determining the risks to which companies are exposed when selling on credit and they know the usual local practices to guarantee the effective recovery of unpaid credit. This is the Solunion case, where we have extensive experience and knowledge in commercial risk management.

Schools – Saarbrücken:Teachers will be equipped with laptops for the new school year

Directly from the dpa news channel

Saarbrücken (dpa / lrs) – All teachers in Saarland will be equipped with laptops or tablets for the next school year. A master plan for the digitization of schools provides for this.

The planning also includes equipping all students from the third grade with mobile devices by the school year 2022/23. The ministry announced that this should begin as early as the next school year.

According to information from the end of 2020, Saarland will invest around 137 million euros in digital education by 2024; 66.8 million come from the federal government through the digital school pact.

With funds from the federal government and the Saarland, around 23,500 laptops and tablets have been purchased for pupils in need in the past few months. The devices are the basis for ensuring that all students have equal access to online lessons during the pandemic-related school closings. The devices are the basis for setting up the “State-wide Systematic Media Loaning System Saar”.

Schools – Wiesbaden – SPD calls for Turkish and Greek lessons in schools – education

Schools – Wiesbaden – SPD calls for Turkish and Greek lessons in schools – education

Wiesbaden (dpa / lhe) – Turkish and Greek should be included in the foreign language offerings at schools according to a request by the Hessian SPD parliamentary group. “To this end, the state government needs a concept for modernizing the foreign language offering that is geared towards the needs of parents and children on site,” said the integration policy spokesman, Turgut Yüksel. So far, the black-green state government has ignored the reality of life for the Hessian citizens.

So far, in addition to English, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, ancient Greek and Latin, Polish, Chinese, Portuguese and Arabic will also be included in the courses in the future, said Minister of Education Alexander Lorz (CDU). One does not want to offend citizens of Turkish origin with this selection, but one has to limit oneself to the number of languages.

The education policy spokeswoman for the left-wing parliamentary group, Elisabeth Kula, said the offer was not sufficient. After all, Turkish is the most important language of origin in Hesse after German. “About 300,000 people of Turkish origin live here. It is therefore completely incomprehensible why this large group of people is not taken into account and their language is offered as a second or third foreign language in schools,” explained Kula. The language is an integral part of Hessian multiculturalism.

Anno Enners from the AfD contradicted these demands. It is more important to teach Dutch or Czech, he said. “After all, with these languages ​​one could significantly deepen the partnership with our direct neighbors.”

The working group of the Turkish mosque associations had written an open letter to the state government before the state parliament debate. Your coordinator, Hüseyin Kurt, stated that he was delighted that Hessen had recognized the importance of multilingualism. “However, we have no plausible explanation for why the Turkish language was not included in this expansion of the language offering in schools,” criticized Kurt. He was very disappointed and outraged that the Turkish language was being ignored in this motion.

“Politics and education are inextricably linked. Political education is the prerequisite for people of all ages – children and adults – to participate equally in our democracy and to be able to actively shape our society. It is important that these skills are promoted at all levels and at all ages. Because if you don’t know anything, you have to believe everything! ”, Says Vice Mayor and Education Councilor Christoph Wiederkehr.

Mobile collectors wanted for the MS Collection Week

MS collection week from June 28 to July 3, 2021

The national MS Collection Week of the National MS Fund will take place from June 28 to July 3, 2021. The organization is looking for people who want to collect with their mobile phone. You can collect mobile from your couch, garden chair or lounger! Will you help in the fight against multiple sclerosis (MS)?

The MS Fund is currently making it clear in the new Face it campaign that MS has a huge impact on (young) lives and has many different faces. MS is nerve-wracking.

The campaign features five people with MS: Carla, Winston, Carlien, Kevin and Vera. They differ in age and are each in a different stage of life, but they have one thing in common: all five have MS. On they show in a penetrating way what impact the disease has on their lives and what various complaints and courses there are.

Face it. MS is nerve-wracking
In the Netherlands, 25,000 people experience the consequences of the chronic and progressive disease MS every day. This campaign not only literally puts a face on MS, but also calls for the seriousness of the disease to be brought to bear. A literal connection is made with the nervous system, but also a link with the emotional side of the disease and what this does to patients.

Research urgently needed
There is no solution for MS yet. Researchers do not know how MS develops or how the disease can be cured. More research is therefore urgently needed. The National MS Fund spends the proceeds from the MS Collecteweek on scientific research into better treatments and a better quality of life for people with MS.

Become a collector!
We are looking for mobile collectors. They collect with their mobile phone, which can be done very easily from work or from home. The proceeds of the national collection week make a difference to 25,000 people in the Netherlands who have to live every day with a disease that literally destroys their nerves. Research into MS and our fight against MS must therefore continue.
