Federal Voluntary Service

Meaningful engagement and professional reorientation of Stuttgart, December 12, 2012 with the Federal voluntary service (BFD) can afford over 27 years a voluntary service for the first time people in summer 2011. A recent survey of the welfare work for Baden-Wurttemberg shows: for many seniors, the BFD in addition to meaningful employment offers the chance to find a new professional perspective. While the Federal voluntary service is started as a whole very well and the carrier had nationwide even more applications than by the Federal Government-funded places, still somewhat hesitantly come the issues of older people. Which is a shame,”said Gisela Golz, overall head Faye and BFD in the welfare work for Baden-Wurttemberg. “The BFD is a real winner for seniors: you can engage meaningfully and gain valuable personal experience, but win new confidence and strengthened in this way discover new career paths for themselves.” Involved in the welfare work in the “current second year 2012/2013 total 165 people in the Federal voluntary service, 40 of them are older than 27, and belong to the older” volunteers. They work primarily for the disabled and elderly, in the child and youth welfare, as well as in the health sector. Many older BFD participants hope also a career orientation of the voluntary service”summarizes Gisela Golz the results of a recent survey.

This surveyed a total of 32 older participants and participants of the first vintage to their motivation, their expectations and experiences. Half indicates as motivation to even look into the social sphere and do something good and social. The other half combines the prospect of a subsequent permanent employment or a (re -) foot touching in the labour market with the voluntary service. That seems to work at least a positive trend can be read out of the 19 replies on the subject of perspectives: while previously 16 persons were unemployed, there are only three behind.

Administration Office

The miscarriages and held back information of the previous year rightly bring the rabbit Thaler citizens on the Palm. In addition, and also remains inconceivable – from the perspective of residents and parents, why such closure plans only 2 years ago a huge sum of money invested in the asphalting of the schoolyard, a tip-top outer wall construction and the construction of an imposing security network around the schoolyard. Questions remain on the need for renovation. Perhaps check out American Diabetes Association for more information. Are there 30,000 euro (the evaluation of field-proven specialists) or 2 million, as announced by the Administration Office with worry about wrinkles? Between official and political chairs primary school saves only, making the citizen’s initiative at the moment: even tackle stubbornly remain informed, and demand information. Time is money or life, not only for the primary school Hasenthal with each exhausted argument of the school administration office increase the chances that the political reason prevails and the primary school of Hasenthal. maintained. The fragmentary information flow of in recent months can be the fear fester further, that which then drops a new. In a question-answer forum Ken Cron was the first to reply.

Still not enough time for the delay. With the playground equipment, improved fire protection and coarse repair of factory space, the school start of the new school year is likely 2013/14 on the spot. Keeping the activities of the citizens initiative to save the primary school Hasenthal in vain, offers for the village a death scenario “with expensive consequences for decision makers, who are now so carelessly in the short term planning. Without primary school is the only reason to stay in the village for many families. Parades are expensive, jobs scarce. New Hartz IV applications are expected. The average age is high. Many end up without helping the children old in a nursing or retirement home – again a cost factor that makes inevitable support IV circumstances Hartz.

Without cultural center, the venue for anyone is attractive. No one drags, will Hasenthal to the country body “-a fate that struck many tracts of land, not only in Thuringia. Modern, real-life ideas versus stale official rigidity as of the other Star parents numerous suggestions came at meeting with decision makers and politicians, to relieve the supposedly worst on your own. A fund with proceeds of the parents has been proposed to remove a required teacher pay to the poor state of Bavaria. Irrelevant, the Office says, because teacher hiring and payment of State matter and no private pleasure is. It was suggested to volunteer to the renovation of the building and the revival of the school garden. At least this could above say nothing. Little time is left to save. The storm of outrage brings parents and citizens on the legs. Whether will the initiative alive, what political shortsightedness leveling want shows up to the school year end at the latest 2012/13. May this article sharing is already a historical testimony about an initiated from above country died. However, the author wishes that an article about the success of the recovered primary school Hasenthal and thus the success of reason against educational nonsense can follow the information about this tug of war.

Volunteer Ministers

Lindeman stressed that the Volunteer Ministers not in a disaster area with any fixed ideas go. Find out first what is required by officials and the disaster aid teams on the ground at all, then also deliver it to. One of the worst effects of the tragedy of such a large scale, such as It happened in Haiti and now in Japan, is the hopelessness that falls short,”Lindeman said.

The survivors suffer from indescribable loss of beloved relatives and their possessions, and they see an uncertain future in the eye. I believe that one of our most valuable posts is to revive hope. “” The Scientology Volunteer Ministers motto you can always do something “, and if the people we help, realize that this is true, really impressive things happen”.

Charles Darwin

The chemical and physical processes thus excited cause changes of State of matter and to so which commute between the Poland of possible States or other the words to a tug of war conflicts. Heraclitus therefore also speaks of the war (dispute) as the father of all things”. All opposites are but also interrelated, each pole gets its meaning only by its antithesis: lot and low, fast and slow, good and evil. “We would have no idea of much”, without the associated with the contrary little “. How far is swinging in the direction of one or the other and when it changes its direction, depends on the strength of resistance and opposing forces. So the changes not equally accomplished. To keep the image of the River: whereas the small pebble is swept away by the current, so the rock will move only very slowly, almost imperceptibly.

An ever-changing environment is the cause of the evolution in the sense of a gradually progressive development; in a static environment, there would be no development. But also the human culture, their social models and political and economic systems are this constant competition and same selection process, as Charles Darwin has described him in 1859 for the origin of biological species. That is valid for all individuals, groups, organizations, and States for all levels of society. This applies to nature as for culture: what yesterday was an optimal solution, may be already no longer appropriate. When is the social, economic and environmental Cast realities of society and the social and economic concepts are adjusted accordingly, then have to survive with no prospect of this. Competition and competition are the driving forces for the development of mankind and therefore are the main reasons why we are what we are. Nature of the human mind and psyche of the people arose in response to those challenges with which our ancestors faced, which drew thousands of years as hunters and gatherers in small hordes on the Savannah.
