Moral courage: why looking the other way is the wrong option

moral courage: why looking the other way is the wrong option

Saturday night. Shortly after 3 o’clock. On the way through the city center of kronach, a group of manners catches the eye, there is a loud discussion, and the tone becomes increasingly aggressive. They start pushing each other. The situation threatens to escalate. What to do?

"The worst solution? To simply turn away and move on", gerhard anders, press spokesman for the kronach police, and his colleague matthias stocker agree. The situation described is fictitious, but not too far-fetched. Only recently, a case of attempted manslaughter was heard in the coburg district court. The victim was a 51-year-old man who intervened in a similar situation on kronach’s marienplatz – but whose civil courage became his downfall.

Always a matter of discretion

But how do you deal with situations where turning away and walking on is the worst course of action?? It is always a matter of discretion whether one actively intervenes in such a situation, says anders. "Anyone with common sense should assess this and ask themselves: can I be expected to do this?? Or was I just putting myself in danger??" Regardless of the individual case, one thing is always advised: to dial 911 and inform the police. "The best thing to do is to describe the situation as precisely as possible to your colleagues on the phone." In this case, you should keep calm and avoid hectic and watch everything carefully – if you are traveling alone, better from a distance. "If I myself become a victim, I achieve nothing. As an observer, however, I can later support the police with my testimony."

Potholes and a shortage of doctors were also a topic in the past

Potholes and a shortage of doctors were also a topic in the past

Once again, the rudolf winkler house was filled to capacity. Everyone wanted to know what it was like back then. "Back then", this meant the time of the three-year war until the end of the bamberg monastery around 1803. The audience was given a vivid impression of the history of zeil in numerous pictures and in a lecture, in which historical facts and figures were mixed in a well-balanced relationship with entertaining original statements of people from that time. A profound speaker was alois umlauf, one of the four local historians from zeil who are organizing the series of lectures in the anniversary year. The lecture on the history of the town was a further contribution to the 1000-year celebration, which the town is celebrating this year.
In eleven chapters, he provided information about the changing economic situation of the city, about the topic of emigration and immigration, as well as about medical care and craftsmanship. The handling of catastrophes became clear on the basis of the local fire protection as well as on the basis of the military and the political circumstances.
Many a spectator came to the realization that these topics are probably the social questions of all times. And not only the mayor thomas stadelmann made a good impression on the topic "ailing roads and high indebtedness of the city" inwardly a smiling direct flight to the present time. Alois umlauf quoted the castner erhard fexer, who wrote in 1780: "zeil is the poorest office in the high diocese of bamberg… The long-distance traveler no longer passes through zeil because the roads are extremely bad and spoiled."
Medical care in the countryside was also more than adequate. There were only four doctors in the entire diocese of bamberg, namely in kronach, in forchheim, in vilseck and in zeil. There was a struggle to oblige the simple bathers, surgeons and midwives to a general basis of basic medical knowledge, so that the population would not be subjected to the "bunglers" was at the mercy.
Witch mania, war and plague decimated the population of zeil from 1500 to 500. Almost no house was without victims, no house with an intact family, no house without damage. And it took almost 100 years for the population to return to its original level.
Despite the small size of the city, zeil had an almost exuberant administrative system. In addition to the four quartermasters, as the responsible persons for a quarter were called, there was also an upper and a lower burgomaster and another ten councilors. In addition, there were the bailiff and the town bailiff as deputies of the prince-bishop of bamberg.
The ara bamberg ended for zeil when in 1802 a completely new form of administration was forced upon zeil, because as a consequence of the second war of the coalition (1799 to 1802) the ecclesiastical principality of bamberg and wurzburg were dissolved and incorporated into the kingdom of bavaria. Due to this abrupt loss of cultural identity, the region and the city of zeil were faced with the task of gradually re-establishing a new francophone consciousness. Whether and how this succeeds can be seen on 21. September and 18. October at the next city history lectures, to which the mayor thomas stadelmann already invited.

Israel clears outposts in the west bank

Israel clears outposts in the west bank

Only one of the last 18 families refused to leave their homes voluntarily on thursday, a reporter told the "jerusalem post" newspaper.The family was carried out into the open by security forces without resistance. The settlers thus complied with a decision of the supreme court, reluctantly but mainly voluntarily.

Many of the settlers wore black shirts with the words "ulpana neighborhood, we’ll be back" printed on them. Security forces, according to media information, also took out some extremist settlers who did not live there, but had broken into an apartment that had already been vacated.

The judiciary had ordered the demolition, by july 1, of five multi-family houses built without building permits on private palastinian land in the outpost of the settlement of beit el, givat ha-ulpana. July. Fears of more violent incidents did not materialize, as they did during the departure of the first 15 families on tuesday. This was achieved by prime minister benjamin netanyahu, who promised to build 300 new apartments in existing settlements to replace the 30 apartments in the outpost.

Rimini-cup in hausen: mexico is still the main attraction

Rimini-cup in hausen: mexico is still the main attraction

With the rimini cup taking place this weekend, crushed ice consumption in hausen near bad kissingen is once again increasing immensely. "The mexicans will consume more ice than the people of kissing during the whole "rakoczy-fest", says hausen’s chairman of the board wolfgang lutz. Because with the mexican U14 national team the probably most professional participant comes to hausen. And he wants to take an ice bath after every game. "But our supplier from schweinfurt can’t deliver that much. 150 kilos of ice were used per pool filling, i.E. 30 polystyrene boxes." Because it was just too much ice, wolfgang lutz has already talked to the mexicans. That’s probably why they only take the ice bath after every second game.

Professional conditions

"Mexico travels with a squad of 28 players and has, for example, its own video analyst who checks every training session", says lutz. The mexicans also have other demands; after all, they have a title to defend. "The turf on our training ground was too high, they didn’t want to train on it", says lutz. That’s why he organized together with the city another training ground for the national team.

Since sunday, the hard-working helpers around wolfgang lutz and alwin minnich, second chairman of the board of tsvgg hausen, have already been setting up the stadium. "Many take extra vacation and help the whole week", says lutz, who is responsible for the construction and logistics and is therefore very grateful for this support. 15 to 20 helpers set up during the day, even more come to work in the evening.

Bausback: csu has made one or two mistakes

Bausback: csu has made one or two mistakes

"We don’t have an easy standing in the public eye at the moment."At the very end of his speech on cybercrime, bavaria’s justice minister winfried bausback returned to the beginning of the event on wednesday evening at the mittelstandsunion in dettelbach. Dettelbach’s old mayor, reinhold kuhn, has already stated in his grubwort: "we are currently in stormy times in the CSU – we have to stick together."

What is the reason? "On the one or other mistake, but also on criticism that is not factual," says bausback, who also appeals to cohesion. How important this is for the party at the moment is also made clear by the long list of those buried by the district chairman of the union of small and medium-sized businesses, tibor brumme: everything that has rank and name in the party has turned up, at the forefront the candidates for the state parliament and district elections in the fall.

The attack on the data of the dettelbach city administration two and a half years ago is the hang-up for the justice minister: "what happened to dettelbach is not an isolated case," he says, because there are around 40,000 attacks on authority networks in bavaria every day. "We need IT (information technology), and the gaps must be closed as far as possible," says the minister, who also knows the weak points: above all, the employees, something that municipalities and commercial enterprises also know.

“An association that is alive”

At the elections held during the general meeting of the fruit and horticulture association of grub am forst, there was a change in the position of the winegrower's steward. Until now, this post was held by chairman ulrich kieser. Florian kieser is currently working as a winegrower who, due to his profession, also possesses the corresponding specialist knowledge. This is necessary, because in the event of disruptions or damage, a quick remedy is important.

"Last year, 25 tons of apples, pears and mostly quinces were processed", ulrich kieser announced. Due to the bad apple year and the new acceptance regulation, the pressing was done on only nine days. Many helpers were on hand for local conservation inspections, kieser reported. "The orchard and gardening association does a lot of good and does a lot of work with its "care and maintenance", also stated mayor jurgen wittmann. He praised the cooperation with the municipality.

He thanked for the extensive voluntary work, which often happens in secret. Barbara lauterbach asked that gardening be approached in a natural way and that one or the other corner of the garden not be mowed for the benefit of insects.
