You can't make the same mistake twice . A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Never underestimate just how much of a difference the smallest bit of praise can make . NEVER praise a mistake or error. Even if your students may look like they need a confidence boost, praising mistakes will only hinder them in the long term (see ways to provide constructive criticism below).

Women are a power factor in the CDU and central to its success. Even in 2021, not all men in the party seem to be aware of this. A comment.

Even if Friedrich Merz is not exactly known as a fighter for equality: What he said at the CDU party congress on the "issue with women" left even die-hard Merz critics stunned. "If I really had a problem with women, as some say, then my daughters would have shown me the yellow card long ago - and my wife would not have married me 40 years ago," said Merz. His team found the saying so successful that it tweeted him straight away.

Merz can't have a problem with women because his wife is a woman herself? One could be raving about this logical short circuit for a long time, but that would fall short. There is a deeper problem behind this: In 2021 there are still men in the CDU who think that way. And systematically underestimate women.

Some fear that the party will be divided into the super election year. © dpa Despite the pandemic, Kramp-Karrenbauer was optimistic about the upcoming federal election campaign. “There will certainly be a lot of digital components. The CDU is also very fit there. CDU boss Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer sees the cohesion of the party as the top priority, especially with a narrow result of the chairman election in a week.

Merz made this mistake in 2018. Back then, women were the decisive factor. Most of them voted for Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. In the run-up to this year's party congress, it was also clear: a third of the delegates will be women. Should they agree on a candidate, that could be the deciding factor.

But Merz was not impressed by it. He stated that he considered a women's quota in the CDU only to be the “second best” solution. It was enough for him that there was a Facebook group with the title “We women for Friedrich Merz”. He did not approve a questionnaire sent to him by the Women's Union for publication. In the end, the Women's Union recommended Röttgen or Laschet to the female CDU members - which was equivalent to a vote against Merz.

Criticism of the slow disbursement of aid funds grows

 Criticism of the slow disbursement of aid funds grows The longer the lockdown lasts, so does the criticism of the slow disbursement of state corona aid. Business associations and the opposition criticized the regulations on Tuesday - they were too "complicated" and too "bureaucratic". The Union blamed Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD), the opposition also made Economics Minister Peter Altmaier (CDU) responsible. © John MACDOUGALL The criticism of the regulations for the state's bridging aid to companies in the Corona crisis is growing.

Why are these thousands of medical professionals worldwide saying the pandemic is a crime? What information do they have access to, that we are not getting from the mainstream media? I invite you to look at the following facts with an open mind and then come to your own conclusions…

The Union has to think about how it wants to keep women voters.

After this party congress it should be clear: It is difficult to get past women in the Union. Merz also had female supporters. The vast majority of the female delegates should have voted in the second ballot Laschet and thus decided the election. For them it is not just about wanting to see women better represented in the CDU. It is also a strategic question: the Union has to think about how it wants to keep its voters if Angela Merkel no longer runs for election .

The figures show how much the CDU and CSU depend on female votes. Because politics in the Union is predominantly made by men - four fifths of the Union MPs in the Bundestag are men - but it is much more often elected by women than men. If there is no longer a woman at the top of the CDU and the candidate for chancellor is also a man, then it is all the more important that the Union credibly takes the concerns of female voters into account.

Some mistakes occur when students translate a phrase or a sentence from their mother tongue to This is true, that’s why the mistakes should be chosen wisely, the ones that the students can fix at It is a barrier they need to overcome. Until then, I just write down the mistake and the name of the

Most older women who are unmarried prefer to go by “Ms.,” though this often comes down to personal preference. If you are unsure, it never hurts to ask! Doctor: Use this title if the woman or man you are addressing is a doctor, or if he or she has a PhD.

It would have been difficult with Friedrich Merz. But even for Laschet, who in the case of his chancellorship wants to fill half of the cabinet with women, it is not a sure-fire success. Why this is so is shown in the current cabinet. There has been a struggle for a binding quota for women on board members in recent months. It should come now: If the board members of listed companies with equal co-determination have more than three members, a (!) Woman must be there in the future. The SPD wrested this from the Union.

Laschet has recognized that women are a power factor in the Union.

The Union is not known for focusing particularly on women. For example, she is still sticking to the splitting of spouses, although it has long been clear that this tax model favors single-income marriage and can lead to old-age poverty among women. The last time the Union was praised for improving the work-life balance was when Ursula von der Leyen introduced parental allowance as Minister for Family Affairs.

The fact that Laschet has recognized that women are a power factor in the Union and important for the success of his party is only the first step. If the CDU wants to continue to be successful, it must also be followed by deeds under his leadership.

Mandryk: Moe making mistakes that Wall tended to avoid .
The magic behind former Saskatchewan Party premier Brad Wall’s success wasn’t necessarily just his charisma or his incredibly good fortune of $140US/barrel for oil. What separated Wall was his understanding of both politics and this province. He usually understood the value of the vast centre territory where most people exist and when it made sense to lay claim to this territory. It was seldom a big thing. Usually, it was smaller, palatable-to-everyone gestures like moving the working poor off the income tax roll or guaranteeing an independent home for every disabled person in the province or specific job training programs for First Nations people.
