Democrats' new super power: Single parents like me are a growing political force

  Democrats' new super power: Single parents like me are a growing political force Joe Biden was a single father for several years. Kamala Harris was raised in part by a single mother. They know the value of my loving family type.Kamala Harris has also said that her mother, divorced and single, was her primary role model. "When I was five, my parents split and my mother raised us mostly on her own," she said in her nomination acceptance speech. "She made it look easy, though I know it never was.

After facing the possibility of death from Allied bombs falling on German cities, those who survived suffered new hardships. For those who came home life was also hard : German captivity was a stigma. “Fellow citizens despised us,” calmly recalls Panchenko.

For a long time it was said that the coronavirus did not have Germany under control as severely as other countries. The shock is all the greater now. Politicians are now also chasing the pandemic, says Jens Thurau.

The corona virus and the Germans in spring: These were contact restrictions and decisive action by politicians. The Germans got to know working in the home office, rode bicycles and stayed at home most of the time. We were shocked to see the pictures from Italy or Spain from completely overloaded clinics. From the dead.

We were repulsed by the indifference of President Bolsonaro in Brazil and, above all, of Donald Trump in the White House. But we had Angela Merkel. And the lockdown wouldn't last forever, then summer would come. Got away with a black eye again, was the general feeling. Even if there were several thousand dead in Germany. The Germans recognized themselves a little in the crisis, and there it was again, the "German fear", the symbol for this was the stacking of toilet paper in the basement.

Germany fights back to draw 3-3 with Switzerland in Cologne

  Germany fights back to draw 3-3 with Switzerland in Cologne COLOGNE, Germany (AP) — Germany fought back to draw 3-3 with Switzerland in another error-strewn performance in the Nations League on Tuesday. Mario Gavranovic scored twice for the visitors, who led 2-1 at halftime after capitalizing on sloppy defending and wayward passes from the Germans. The mistakes will do little to quell criticism from former Germany players including Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lothar Matthäus, who had been calling coach Joachim Löw’s tactics into question after a 2-1 win over Ukraine on Saturday and 3-3 draw with Turkey in a friendly the previous Wednesday.

That was quite a long time ago though. Since then, Ive got more qualifications and worked for quite a few different firms, some more environmentally aware than others. I feel much prouder of the recycling symbol now than I used to, probably because its so widely seen.

Then how about trying snowbiking, the newest thrill-seeking experience that is becoming very popular all over the world? Snowbiking involves riding a bicycle that has skis instead of wheels over the snow. It's a challenge that expert skiers and mountain bikers will love!

The virus has Germany firmly under its control.

Everything is different now. Nothing goes by quickly, not the virus, not the crisis. The Germans had to learn how important the incidence value is. You are experiencing a policy that hectically pronounces bans on accommodation in the hotels that have already collected individual dishes. Everyone, at least most of them, wear disciplined masks where they have to; they would certainly do it in public places too. And you will experience a chancellor who is gradually losing patience with the prime ministers' eagerness to go it alone.

The sayings about the excellent health care of the Germans, about the prudence of their politicians and scientists have faded away, deep concern has spread. The number of infections among Germans compared to those in France, for example, is still comparatively low. But politics is now playing a daring game. A second lockdown should no longer be expected of the economy and culture, and the rulers are placing responsibility for the further course of the pandemic in the hands of the citizens. In the big cities in particular, the regulatory powers have not been able to prevent large celebrations in the summer - that was hardly possible, considering how chronically few staff the police have had for decades.

F1 practice session canceled, no 1st drive for Schumacher

  F1 practice session canceled, no 1st drive for Schumacher NÜRBURG, Germany (AP) — The first practice session for the Eifel Grand Prix was canceled Friday because of bad weather, keeping Michael Schumacher's son Mick from his first official drive as part of a Formula One race weekend. Low cloud and mist made for poor visibility around the Nürburgring track and it was declared unsafe for the medical helicopter to take off before time ran out for the 90-minute session. The helicopter is required under F1 safety rules and must be able to fly any casualties to the hospital at high speed.

C. It is easy both to enter and to travel around pocket- sized Belgium which is divided into the Dutchspeaking north and the French-speaking south. Officially the Belgians speak Dutch, French and German .

E. Not so long ago in Britain if you saw someone reading a newspaper you could tell what kind it was without even checking the name. They put up with the long journey because they want their families to avoid the unhealthy lifestyle of big cities.

Politics seem overwhelmed.

Wear masks, distance, hygiene. And back to the most essential contacts. In a private conversation it becomes clear that more and more people who by and large support the Corona policy now have some questions. Why was and is it a terrible show of strength to be able to visit a dying family member in the clinic , and why is the Bundesliga playing in front of an audience again at the same time? Why do responsible citizens have to forego traveling as a couple to a hotel in the neighboring state while the police fail to break up parties with a few hundred participants?

equations that probably don't help anyone. It doesn't help: the vast majority of the sensible in the country have to go through the crisis again. It might be a hard, cold and dark winter. Politicians have now tried various things, made mistakes, for example first praised federalism and then exaggerated it. But a democratic society consists of freedom and responsibility, not just rights, but also duties.

We have to tackle this ourselves now, each and every one of us. Politics has gotten tangled up in the small and small for now, but the Germans themselves already know well enough what to do now. Corona crisis, episode two: wear masks, keep your distance, limit contacts. And don't lose patience.

Kvitova serves up storm, Kenin endures to reach SF matchup .
PARIS (AP) — The rain finally held off at the French Open, so Petra Kvitova rained down aces instead. Six of them, taking her tournament-leading tally to 24, as the two-time Wimbledon champion reached her first semifinal at Roland Garros since 2012 and first at any Grand Slam since her run to the final of the 2019 Australian Open. Her semifinal opponent will be Sofia Kenin, the Australian Open champion who has been pushed to three sets in all but one of her five matches so far in Paris, including her 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 quarterfinal win Wednesday over fellow American Danielle Collins.
