Coalition wants to relieve the burden on health insurance contribution payers

Coalition wants to relieve the burden on health insurance contribution payers

"We want to give the insured with high contribution backlogs the chance to finally get out of the ever faster spinning contribution spiral," said CDU health politician jens spahn to the "suddeutsche zeitung" newspaper. Those who have not been insured up to now because of fear of having to pay the additional contributions can choose a simple way back into health insurance after the law is passed. "With this, we are correcting, in the interest of those affected, some regulations of recent years that have been too harsh," said spahn.

The black-yellow coalition wants to lower the interest rate on unpaid health insurance premiums from the current annual rate of 60 percent to 12 percent in the future. So that the debts of the succulent contributors did not rise so fast any more. Already now, however, the funds can also waive the interest on application. After the bill was passed, federal health minister daniel bahr (FDP) declared that existing debts would continue to be subject to the old surcharge. The lowered interest rate will only apply to new contribution arrears.

Who grabs the crests and helmets??

Who grabs the crests and helmets??

B smokes someone the world man day? Depends naturally on what it is there for. The one that since the year 2000 has always been on the 3. The kerwa, which is celebrated on november 1, has important goals: there are usually activities to provide information and advice about manner health. Men still have a lower life expectancy than women, partly because they pay less attention to their health in life. Of course, there are many reasons for this, which do not play a role here. However, on world men’s day, we’ll be playing a game about a typical male profession, the samurai. This is the term used in the west to describe traditional japanese warriors who had risen to positions of political power.

In "kaito", japanese for master thief, we are two samurai trying to take each other’s swords, helmets and coats of arms. The tiles are randomly distributed in a square of six by six boxes. In the middle is a "kaito" on the way, which we always alternately pull horizontally or vertically. We hit the stone on which its train ends. If we manage to get all seven alien swords or all three alien helmets, we have won.

So that this doesn’t happen too quickly, we have the possibility to exchange a helmet or a sword with foreign coats of arms that we have beaten. This rule, in turn, can lead to us taking our own emblem stone out of the game under certain circumstances. Then the other one can’t get it anymore and can’t use it for trading.

Tim berners-lee: internet does not work for women

Tim berners-lee: internet does not work for women

Women are dangerously disadvantaged on the internet, according to web inventor tim berners-lee. Thus, the desired gender equality could never be achieved, he wrote to 31. Anniversary of the invention of the world wide web.

The computer scientist had on 12. March 1989 presented his proposal for a system of information management, which gave birth to the world wide web. At that time, he was working at the european organization for nuclear research (cern) in geneva. "The web does not work for women and girls", wrote berners-lee.

Men are still 21 percent more likely to be online, and 52 percent more likely in the poorest countries. This would consolidate inequality, millions of girls and women did not have the chance to learn online, earn money and make their voices heard. In addition, according to studies, more than half of young women have experienced violence online, such as threats and insults. Many gave up their education or jobs because of it, others withdrew from social media and the world lost its votes with it.

Health resorts and spas call for financial aid

For the remainder of 2018 and the coming year 2019, the community of the five french spas and health resorts of bad rodach, bad staffelstein, bad steben, weibenstadt and bad alexandersbad would like to focus on the topic of mobile home parking spaces. That’s what their representatives decided at the general meeting in bad rodach, where mayor tobias ehrlicher buried his colleagues in the thermal baths. The "5 kurfranken these five communities call themselves. Four of the five municipalities already have parking spaces in the immediate vicinity of the local spa and are considering a possible expansion.
Another key topic was suggested by burgermeister ehrlicher and concerned the financial resources of the bavarian spas and health resorts. The tasks associated with the state recognition were obligatory tasks for the towns to secure the rating. This has been accompanied by a continuous need for investment and a financial burden due to ongoing operations. But it was precisely the spa operators who had great potential for developing the countryside, especially in structurally weak regions, said ehrlicher. The bavarian government’s structural policy has achieved a great deal, but all those present agreed that it still needs support. The community of the "5 kurfranken therefore calls for further improvement of funding for spas and health resorts.
After a brief discussion, the meeting participants were given an expert tour of the spa by mayor tobias ehrlicher and managing director stine michel, and were able to see for themselves the wide range of recreational and leisure opportunities available there.

The results on loacker do not reassure the people of wonfurt

The results on loacker do not reassure the people of wonfurt

The citizens' initiative "lebenswertes wonfurt" reacts with strong criticism to the two reports that the state office for the environment and the state office for health and food safety presented to the environmental committee of the state parliament on thursday. In it, the two authorities emphasize that the controversial loacker recycling plant in wonfurt poses no danger to human health. The citizens' initiative (BI) in wonfurt sees things very differently, as it makes clear in a statement published yesterday (friday). Signed the representation of the BI their speaker peter werner.

Sarcasm
The burgerinitiative reacts with sarcasm. "Merchandise not nicholas eve today", so it seems "the new press release from the authorities could be interpreted as an april joke. Unfortunately, the situation around loacker in wonfurt looks different from what these officials would like to see."
For one and a half years, there has been fierce criticism in wonfurt of the loacker company, which is suspected of releasing dust contaminated with toxic substances from its production facilities into the surrounding area. Burgerinitiative and the municipality of wonfurt demand a complete production stop. At present, only cable scrap may be recycled and no more electrical scrap.

The announcement of the officials in the environmental committee of the state parliament to offer a biomonitoring for the people of wonfurt, limited to lead and PCB, is seen by the citizens' initiative as "a clear rejection of finding the truth and taking responsibility in the gift scandal loacker. This cancellation is not only directed against the people from wonfurt, but also against the people from habfurt and wulflingen who are affected. It does not serve as announced for the calming of the people, at the most for the calming of the own bad conscience", the BI. Just over a year ago, these authorities had been extremely critical of the neurotoxin arsenic, among other things. Now, a good year later, this neurotoxin, which is in the first place, is no longer being considered at all. Contrary to all facts, as the chairman of the environmental committee in the state parliament, christian magerl (grune), has already denounced.
