On March 18, it should be so far. Then the trial is to start on an act that has stirred up Chemnitz. At the end of August 2018, 35-year-old Daniel H. had been stabbed to death in the city, presumably by two asylum seekers. Right-wing marches in the city, attacks on migrants, weeks of unrest followed. Now one of the suspects, Syrian Alaa S., is to stand trial before Chemnitz Regional Court. But the defense is intervening: it wants the trial to take place outside Saxony.

The Berlin Senate accepts the headscarf ruling of the Regional Labor Court (LAG) – at least formally. The state will not appeal the ruling, a spokeswoman for the Senate Education Department announced at the end of last week. But whether female teachers wearing headscarves will soon be able to teach in all Berlin schools is still questionable.

The investigative committee begins its work. The SPD considers it superfluous. It remains to be seen whether Edathy himself will even appear.

The chairwoman of the investigative committee on the Edathy affair sounds as if she actually has better things to do: "We are of the opinion that we did not need this committee," says SPD politician Eva Hogl, a few hours before the committee begins its work. She expects "no surprises and no new findings." Her parliamentary group colleague Uli Grotsch, who as SPD chairman is supposed to contribute to the clarification, also appears moderately motivated: "As the SPD, we are of the opinion that there are no more open questions."

Switzerland is hindering the development of poorer countries by importing raw materials and pursuing a low-tax policy. In doing so, it could change its behavior without any losses.

Switzerland lives more at the expense of other countries than any other country in the world. No one is preventing the others as much from achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN in 2015 by 2030. This is the conclusion reached by the Bertelsmann Foundation in this year’s report reviewing progress in implementing the 17 SDGs in 160 of the 193 UN member states.

Who wants to visit the Villa Feltrinelli in the small village of Gargnano on Lake Garda, should already know the way.

When the gates open, the deceleration already begins during the approach.
