Court ruling: rape no, bodily injury yes

Court ruling: rape no, bodily injury yes

"We were unable to reach a verdict on the rape accusation. The evidence is insufficient", said presiding judge manfred schmidt in the bamberger district court.
The second criminal division, however, considered the burden of proof in connection with the accusation of bodily injury to be quite sufficient. The court found the young man guilty of five counts of intentional bodily harm, one count of trespassing and threatening, and one count of attempted coercion. As soon as the verdict becomes legally binding, the 30-year-old county resident will have to spend one year and three months in jail – without parole.

"The defendant has a massive criminal record. He is ready to use physical force if he does not have his way", judge schmidt explained at the sentencing hearing. And that the offender tends to commit violent acts is already evident from his criminal record.
When the young man assaulted his then companion in 2010 and 2011, he was still under guardianship.

Violent relationship
What happened at the time in the couple's shared apartment in the district of bamberg? "The two had a violent relationship from beginning to end", judge schmidt said. The court considered it proven that the defendant was violent against his girlfriend several times, at least in five cases.
He punched her in the face and choked her. A few months later, in early 2011, the perpetrator punched his 25-year-old girlfriend in the back, stomach and head during an argument. In addition, he again challenged her. On another occasion, he gained access to the apartment of the victim.
She asked him to leave, but the perpetrator pushed her to the floor, punched her in the stomach and threatened her.

But in their minds they are in belarus – where president aljaksandr lukashenko has been fighting his own people for almost three weeks now.

Lukashenko, who is "batka" rudely – father – names, responds to largely peaceful demonstrations after presidential election with brute police force. "People are arrested. Then their pants are pulled down and they are beaten with rubber knobs", reports olga zholud, who receives deceased videos and photos every day from her relatives in belarus.

The security forces are deploying heavy protection with rubber bullets and stun grenades. The pictures on olga zholud’s cell phone document what these weapons can do: holes in the abdomen and upper body, bruises covering entire limbs. A photo shows a young man in a wheelchair in front of a hospital, he is probably not yet 18 years old. Where until recently there was his fub, there is now a bandaged stump.

Number of employed persons rises to record level

Number of employed persons rises to record level

The good economic situation in germany is putting more and more people to work. Last year, there was an average of 44.8 million people in employment, the highest number since reunification. This was announced by the federal statistical office on wednesday on the basis of preliminary calculations.

Despite the aging society, the number of employed people grew by 1.3 percent within a year to the highest level since 1991. Since this year, the number of employed persons in eastern and western germany has been recorded together.

A higher proportion of employed nationals and the influx of foreign workers had compensated for the negative effects of demographic change, the wiesbaden-based authority further explained. While low-wage employment declined, more people were employed on a social security basis.

City wants to test protective shields e

The city of coburg approached the bavarian minister for education and culture, michael piazolo, and proposed a pilot use of the ecosafeboard from the company schumacher (ebersdorf) in the city’s schools. Mayor dominik sauerteig and the third mayor thomas nowak write in the letter to piazolo: "this board is an innovative spit shield made of corrugated cardboard with a viewing window and can effectively protect the schoolchildren from infection during lessons." However, for a comprehensive use of these partition walls, it is important to gather experience in real operation in a medium-term practical test. "For this purpose, we offer to act as a pilot municipality for all coburg schools", according to OB sauerteig and school officer nowak. The city of coburg was prepared to bear the costs of the regular hygiene and disinfection inspections and to prepare a report on the results for the specialist departments of the ministry and the government of upper franconia as part of an evaluation, provided that the state of bavaria assumed the acquisition costs.

"We are convinced that this innovation can be a good complement to the protective measures already considered and should therefore be tested at least on a pilot basis in real operation", sourdough and nowak write. No option should be left unconsidered in order to "protect our students and teaching staff from infection".

The ball is rolling and the mood is rising. The first chance by robben – and immediately a first, very loud murmur goes through the hall. "Today we're going to get them", has long been the general opinion. With "the" are of course the world stars messi, xavi& co. Meant.

It hums and buzzes, whistles and rustles

Kitzingen it whistles – and just doesn’t stop again. One looks for the source of the noise, but does not find it. And no one else hears the whistle. It is only in our ear: tinnitus. Many people have already experienced ringing in the ears, and for most they disappear again. But about three million people in germany suffer permanently from tinnitus. For ENT doctors like armin laub in kitzingen, treating tinnitus patients is part of everyday life.

Question: how many patients with tinnitus come to your practice every day??

Armin laub: at the moment, i see two patients a day with ringing in their ears, but the ringing is not new with each patient. Of course, we also do check-ups to discuss the results of treatment and to determine how to proceed.

Comes only in her rare vacations back to her birthplace friedersdorf ( market pressig ) in the frankenwald. It goes without saying that the now 80-year-old also visits bamberg to express her gratitude for the active support of the archdiocese, which has repeatedly given funds for her health station in haiti's capital, port-au-prince.

And now sister maria has to deal with the terrible news from haiti during her summer vacation, which first took her to her mother's house in fribourg, switzerland: on saturday a severe earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 devastated the southwest of the island state . Especially the provinces of nippes, grand'anse and sud with the coastal town of les cayes are affected, exactly the region where hurricane matthew had already brought destruction five years ago.

Infirmary spared

"I personally am fine," says sister maria quietly on the phone. But the bad news from haiti – so far almost 2000 dead and 10000 injured – "makes me very sad, especially since I can't do anything else but pray". Thank god their employees and the hospital in port-au-prince were spared – unlike in the 2010 earthquake. And she is also "very grateful for all the help that is coming to the victims of the earthquake, and I am very happy about the help from the archdiocese of bamberg," says sister maria.

Giffey: take concerns of afd voters seriously

Giffey: take concerns of afd voters seriously

"You always have to find the balance," said giffey on friday evening in the ARD "tagesthemen" program. "The point is that we demand through education, through integration, through dialogue. That means we have to reach out to them. But there are also situations in which you have to say: the hand is a stop signal. Namely, whenever people do not adhere to certain basic values and rules." This applies, for example, to a forced marriage.

Giffey warned against disparaging afd voters and not taking them seriously. Those who know her had worries and concerns. "If 100 people tell me we have a problem, then it’s highly likely that we have one, and then we have to take care of it," explained the former mayor of berlin’s hotspot district of neukolln. "And certainly justice is important, but security is also important. And we have to address these issues."

Spahn wants to win back hundreds of thousands of afd voters. "A million voters who once voted for the CDU and now for the afd are not lost nazis," spahn told the newspapers of the funke media group (saturday). "I want to convince them of the union again." In the 2017 federal election, the union won around 980.000 voters lost to the afd.
