News of the Weekend

This is the news I hear on the radio this morning .…

  • Teacher Shortage in Germany gets more and more acute – now all hopes are on teachers of eastern countries for help.
  • Nachterstedt: No hope left to find the three missing people alive.
  • Mass Accident on the A2 – a minimum of 60 people injured, 10 of them gravely.
  • Ritered Person (79) drives into a procession with his car in Menden.
  • S-Bahn-Trains in Berlin must undergo maintenance.

… and this is how I feel about them:

  • Isn’t it a disgrace how we are incapable of stabilizing our educational situation – even though politicians keep telling us how important education is for Germany and what a high priority it has?
  • The consequences of mining are still as unpredictable as ever. How is the disposal of radio-active waste in mines to work out?
  • I wonder if it might not be a good idea to start thinking about a speed limit on German motorways. Maybe people would drive slower when it rains, as well.
  • Is it really a good idea that elderly people can drive their cars as long as they wish to? Driving a car is hard work. It requires control over a complex and dangerous machine.
  • Perhaps the DB AG should not have making a huge profit and becoming part of the stock market as its highest priorities. Why is it that maybe most of what is invested might be better invested in infra structure and street building?
