Merkel: Demanding and promoting refugees
In Eternal Darkness - Pictures from the Radiated Chernobyl Reactor Features LATEST NEWS FROM POLITICS, CULTURE, ECONOMY AND SPORT WWW.SÜDDEUTSCHE.DE HF3 (SZ) What is the most beautiful idea of ​​space? Maybe it would be really quiet up there. And that you would have your peace of mind from all the whispers, chatter and din, which you cannot escape down here because everyone is constantly shouting something into their Facebook or Twitter. This is probably why mankind is so obsessed with news from space and eagerly waiting for it to finally go to Mars. Or at least to the planet Kepler452b, which is supposedly an older cousin of Earth. Although that's a frightening idea again: The miserable planets are as related to each other as you and I with the bang-bang from cousins ​​from Kassel or Bremen. So better to go into the forest first, this is the little man's space. It's also nice and dark and empty and always a little creepy. Nobody can hear you, and you don't hear anything yourself, only the cracking of the branches and the whistling of the wind. But even the forest is no longer black and silent. As the Federal Research Institute for Rural Areas, Forests and Fisheries announced, the first jaw in the Brandenburg Schorfheide will soon be equipped with electronic sensors. These then measure, for example, how much water the tree absorbs and evaporates again, and transfer the results to the Internet via a WiFi connection. More precisely: in the social network Twitter. So that you can see the state of the German forest all over the world. If things go as the researchers imagine, trees will soon be tweeting across Europe. Are you crazy? The last great silent cartel, the fabulous trees, is now starting to babble too? You don't have to have absorbed natural poetry like tree roots for two hundred years to consider it complete madness that soon not only more people like Beatrix von Storch will be tweeting, but also every conifer that has walked along. What's next after that? Oak trees taking selfies and spruce trees chatting with three hundred gingko as followers? Will beeches soon post their food chain on Instagram and Whatsapp groups form in the nursery? Do we one day have to deal with the relationship status of the mixed forest and prepare for tindering fir trees? On the other hand, it is always said that one should better pay attention to the trees, yes, listen to them. “Anyone who knows how to listen to the trees will learn the truth,” tweeted the legendary Hermann Hesse from one of his many forest walks. And he was right: following a scraped old tree is so much better than following Kai Diekmann.

PHOTO: R. JENSEN / DPA Merkel: Demanding and promoting refugees The grand coalition agrees on a comprehensive law on dealing with immigrants. Germany does not want any “integration simulators”, says SPD leader Gabriel von Robert Rossmann Berlin - Germany is getting its own integration law for the first time. After months of disputes, the grand coalition agreed on key points for such a set of rules. Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) said on Thursday that the law would be based on the principle of “demanding and promoting”. An important goal is to integrate as many refugees as possible into the labor market. The law could be the "first big step towards a modern immigration law," said SPD leader Sigmar Gabriel. The coalition does not want any “forced assimilated, fearful integration simulators”. Integration is exhausting, but “those who want to belong to us will now have better opportunities”. The key points provide that recognized asylum seekers can be assigned a specific place of residence “to avoid social hot spots”. Refugees who reject integration measures should be able to benefit from reduced benefits. But there are also relief: Refugees should be able to take up work more easily than before. So far, asylum seekers and tolerated persons have only been allowed to fill a position if there are no local applicants. This priority check is to be abolished for three years. Asylum seekers can then also be employed as temporary workers. The content of the planned integration law is to be discussed with the Prime Minister on April 22nd and decided a month later at the cabinet meeting in Meseberg. The leaders of the Union and the SPD met on Thursday night in the Chancellery to discuss the many controversial issues in the government. In the seven-hour conversation they also agreed on a “catalog of measures” to counter terrorism. The reason for this was the attacks in Paris and Brussels. The coalition now wants to improve the investigative powers of the federal police. Undercover investigators should already be able to be used to avert danger. In addition, Germany wants to work more closely with friendly states and their intelligence services. A deployment of the Bundeswehr inside, as many Union politicians are calling for, Gabriel refused again on Thursday. The round in the Chancellery also agreed that the draft law, which has been blocked by the CSU up to now, on stronger control of temporary work and work contracts, may go into parliamentary proceedings. Labor Minister Andrea Nahles (SPD) can therefore now submit her draft to the coordination with the other departments. The dispute does not end there. CSU boss Horst Seehofer said that there are still “some points in need of discussion” in the case of temporary work. Before the Federal Cabinet passed the bill, the coalition leaders would therefore discuss it again. The CSU had stipulated this "safety net". In the dispute over inheritance tax, federal and state finances, the purchase premium for electric cars and the future of pensions, however, there was still no agreement.

It doesn't help anymore if someone is outside the borders of China; it doesn't help anymore if he's not a citizen of the People's Republic at all. This was recently discovered by the Hong Kong publisher Gui Minhai, a Swedish citizen who disappeared from his home in Thailand only to reappear at the hands of the Chinese police. This week 45 Taiwanese were hit. On another continent: The police in Kenya forced you on two planes to China, where you are now in prison. China's government now says it will try the Taiwanese and they have every right to do so. The prisoners were part of a gang that sneaked billions of yuan from Nairobi using phone fraud. The Chinese borderless government arrests Taiwanese people - most of the victims in Kenya were citizens of China. In Taiwan, however, the horror is great. Members of parliament there spoke of “illegal kidnapping”, and one minister called the deportation of his compatriots to China “outrageous and uncivilized”. China thanked the Kenyan authorities for their support of the "one China principle". This is by no means just about legal issues. Although Kenya and China also acted with gross negligence on this front: 15 of the 45 deported Taiwanese had previously been acquitted by a Kenyan court. By invoking the one-China principle in this case, however, the People's Republic of China suddenly claims to be the home of all Taiwanese and to have legal control over them. That shocks the Taiwanese, and not just because they don't see China as a state where one can expect a fair trial. For the past eight years, Taiwan's President Ma Ying-jeou had initiated an unprecedented rapprochement between the island and mainland China. The political guideline was the "1992 consensus", according to which Taiwan and the People's Republic both recognize that there is only "one China" - which at the same time allows both sides to interpret their own. In fact, Taiwan and the People's Republic have been independent states since the end of the civil war in 1949. It is probably no coincidence that Beijing is daring such an escalation with Taiwan right now: The China-friendly President Ma Ying-jeou is stepping down, and in a month's time the new President Tsai Ying-wen will be sworn in in Taipei, who will keep a greater distance from Beijing announced. Beijing and its Taiwanese prisoners have secured bargaining ground right away. However, the effect on Taiwan is devastating. The Taiwanese feel confirmed in their growing distrust of China: They point to a crime-fighting agreement between Beijing and Taipei from 2009, which was created precisely for cases like the one in Kenya. Beijing's word is worthless, it is now said on the island. In Beijing, meanwhile, the spokesman for the Taiwan Affairs Office warned that Taiwan should react “more rationally” and “think more about the victims”. kai strittmatter Wirtschaft The new law against bribery threatens corrupt doctors with jail Media, TV / radio program Children's and youth literature Munich · Bavaria Rätsel Obituaries 19 37.38 15 36 37 31 Süddeutsche Zeitung GmbH, Hultschiner Straße 8, 81677 Munich; Telephone 089 / 2183-0, Fax -9777; [email protected] Advertisements: Telephone 089 / 2183-1010 (real estate and rental market), 089 / 2183-1020 (motor market), 089 / 2183-1030 (job market, other markets).

The majority of group leaders agreed on this in Strasbourg on Thursday. After the Greens, Liberals, Social Democrats and Left, the conservative European People's Party also spoke out in favor. However, the political groups still have to agree on a precise mandate. The time will come on May 4th and the committee will be officially set up that same month. The initiative for this came from the Greens. According to your proposal, the committee of inquiry should investigate “the poor application of EU law in connection with money laundering, tax evasion and tax avoidance”. "We have to make sure that the committee does not degenerate into a toothless tiger," said Sven Giegold, financial policy spokesman for the Greens in the European Parliament. You need a robust mandate to clear up the inaction of the European Commission as well as individual EU states. The Panama Papers would not only have to result in criminal investigations, but also a comprehensive political appraisal, demanded the FDP MP Michael Theurer. Citizens should not get the impression “that the entanglements of top politicians, competitive athletes, top managers and big banks are being swept under the carpet”. Because that is exactly what would “give populists and right-wing fears a tailwind”. The SPD politician Peter Simon emphasized that the fight against money laundering, tax avoidance and tax evasion was “our top priority”. One has to examine the processes in detail, develop legislative proposals for countermeasures and then "keep an eye on the Member States so that lip service ultimately turns into concrete laws". A special committee in the European Parliament is already dealing with the so-called Lux ​​Leaks scandal. The focus is on tax avoidance in Luxembourg and other EU countries. But the work of this committee must be completed, warned Giegold. "We mustn't jump from one scandal to the next." That would damage the credibility of the EU Parliament. Meanwhile, in a television program, Russian President Vladimir Putin again accused foreign countries of being behind the Panama Papers. "We know that there are employees of American institutions," said Putin, according to the Interfax agency. “This article appeared for the first time in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, which belongs to a media holding company owned by the American company Goldman Sachs.” That is wrong. "The Süddeutsche Zeitung belongs neither directly nor indirectly to the Goldman Sachs bank," said the managing director of the SZ, Stefan Hilscher. bbr, on pages 7 and 8 Labor leader promotes remaining in the EU Opposition leader Corbyn wants to fight for a “social Europe” London - The British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn has spoken out in favor of Britain remaining in the EU.

For the Labor Party and the trade unions it was important to fight for a social Europe. “That is the position that was decided by the party.” In the past, Corbyn had often followed a Eurosceptic course. dpa page 8 Bundestag to clear up emissions scandal Berlin - The opposition in the Bundestag increases the pressure in the VW emissions scandal: In April, the left and the Greens want to decide on a committee of inquiry.

On Thursday after their top meeting, however, the three party leaders presented plans for the future together. With the notorious issues of refugee policy and security in particular, things are set to change. By stefan Braun T he grand coalition has often got in the hair over the two years of their cooperation about what is not possible - one asked for something, the other rejected it too often off. On Thursday night, she took the opposite path on an important issue, the integration of refugees. On six pages, cornerstones for an integration law were formulated, which could go down in history as a collection of all the wishes of both sides. Stricter rules for those who refuse to take integration courses can be found in it, as well as a labor market program designed to facilitate access to jobs; Improved educational support is complemented by penalties for those who refuse to be assigned a place of residence. Demand and support - the government cites this not only as a principle for integration. It is apparently also intended to be the leitmotif for the black-red coalition.However, there is one catch: The big hit, that is, billions in investments, for example in education, will not be there for the time being. Courses, money and new obligations with an uncertain outcome of the proceedings would remain in Germany; therefore, these people should also benefit from orientation offers in the future. Professional experience, qualifications and education from the time in Germany could also improve the perspective in the country of origin. Increased funding for refugees is offset by tightening legislation. The coalition leaders decided that in the future, refugees should be obliged to attend integration courses. And not only that: They will also be imposed, as it is still a bit brittle in official German, "duties to cooperate in integration measures". If they refuse, they must expect cuts in social benefits. In addition, the leaders of the SPD and Union have decided to increase the pressure for recognized refugees who are seeking an unlimited settlement permit. In future, they too must have performed “integration services” before they can receive a settlement permit. How the integration services look in detail is left open. Refugees should be promoted and employed earlier, but they also have to accept the help: What the grand coalition is planning with its integration law Authorities should determine where in Germany recognized refugees live. Rejected asylum seekers are also better supported after a year. After all, the coalition has a small one Labor market program decided. The federal government wants to create additional job opportunities for 100,000 asylum seekers. The aim is a "low-threshold introduction to the German labor market", it says in the key issues paper. The range of charitable activities that asylum seekers could take on during their procedure is to be expanded. However, these opportunities should not be opened up to applicants from so-called safe countries of origin: the six states of the Western Balkans are currently classified as such. However, the plan is to expand this list to include the three North African states of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. In the same direction - quick entry into employment contracts - the announcement that new rules will be created for the training support of foreigners also aims. Asylum seekers who have “good prospects to stay”, especially refugees from Syria and Iraq, should receive more help with training and vocational training after just three months. For tolerated people who have been rejected as asylum seekers, integration courses, such as here in Mainz, are to be made compulsory for refugees in the future. but if they are not returned or deported for humanitarian reasons, the aid should take effect after 12 months. A supplementary rule goes into pretty much detail, but it is of great importance for those affected: All refugees who attend such courses will in future be treated as long-term unemployed. Like the long-term unemployed, they have access to special support programs. On the other hand, no decision was made on the question of whether refugees are treated like long-term unemployed when it comes to the issue of the minimum wage. The Bosch Foundation, among others, recently proposed to do this as a recommendation from a commission. As a result, refugees in a new job, like long-term unemployed people, could be paid below the minimum wage in the first six months - as an aid to getting into a job at all. Others, however, warn against employing the refugees below the minimum wage. Some because they see it as FOTO: FREDRIK VON ERICHSEN / DPA discrimination; the others, because they then fear conflicts over jobs among the socially weakest. The coalition also wants to close the gaps. This applies above all to the decision to start all deadlines associated with special rights of the refugees with the handing over of the ID card. So far, they only started with important questions after an asylum seeker had submitted his application to the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. Since this can take many months at the moment, clarity will be created - in this case in favor of the refugees. The latter also applies to the question of whether those for whom the outcome of the asylum procedure is uncertain (for example Afghans and Pakistanis) should nevertheless get early access to so-called orientation courses. So far, only those refugees who have a high “prospect of staying” have received such benefits. Now it is said that some of the people with pressure are also used in the so-called residence allocation. According to this, the authorities should determine in which place recognized refugees live as long as they are dependent on social benefits. Resisting the assignment will lead to "noticeable consequences," it is said. However, the consequences are not specifically named. The Chancellor will decide together with the Prime Minister on April 22 how they should ultimately look. Initial reactions to this announcement have been harsh. Migration researcher Dieter Oberndörfer told the Süddeutsche Zeitung that the project was “foolish, even criminal and not conducive to integration”. A distribution to “empty places” or municipalities, in which there is usually no work, endangers integration instead of making it easier. Heinrich Alt, who was a board member at the Federal Employment Agency until 2015, had recently argued differently. He had supported the idea to better distribute the burdens among the municipalities. However, Alt had also been much more optimistic about finding jobs for the refugees. Then the obligation to adhere to the assignment would no longer apply anyway. The coalition is laboriously feeding itself In order to facilitate the fight against terrorism, prepaid cell phones are only to be sold with ID. There has been only minimal progress on the topics of pensions and green electricity. The leaders of the CDU, CSU and SPD sat together for seven hours, enough time to tackle other topics in addition to the integration law. The partners reached agreement on individual points; on others it was at least possible to agree on how to proceed - on some there was no progress. An overview: Fighting terrorism Although the federal government has already decided to tighten the law in this area, it wants to give the security authorities further powers. For example, the Federal Police should be given the opportunity to use undercover investigators in the fight against smugglers, for example, before a specific crime has been committed. In addition, the security authorities should be allowed to expand their automated search in the inventory data of the telecommunications companies to include incomplete names and different spellings. In return, a maximum number of hits should be set. A third decision is particularly striking: Telecom providers and retailers are to be obliged to always request a valid identity document with complete address details when buying so-called prepaid cell phones. On a voluntary basis, the coalition would also like to convince all companies in the Internet industry to take action against terrorist propaganda on their networks by means of a voluntary commitment. Temporary work and work contracts The planned draft law, which is supposed to regulate temporary work and work contracts more closely, is a prestige project for the SPD. Federal Labor Minister Andrea Nahles (SPD) was all the more annoyed that her project did not go on for months because the CSU had concerns. Now Nahles can look forward to an interim success: She can send the ministerial draft for the new law to other departments without having to have it changed again. But that doesn't mean that the argument about details is over. Seehofer still considers some points to be “in need of discussion”. Gabriel also said: "Of course there are a number of unanswered questions." As with other draft laws, something can change later, both before the cabinet deals with it and later during the deliberations in parliament. With the law, Nahles wants to limit the duration of temporary work in a company to 18 months and stipulate the same pay for temporary workers compared to the permanent workforce after nine months. In the case of work contracts, the Minister of Labor wants to ensure that they do not displace regular jobs in the companies involved. After the employers' associations had sharply criticized the first draft, the SPD politician made some concessions to the business community on her second proposal. Then the business associations in Berlin signaled that they could live with it. Nevertheless, the CSU intervened, probably under pressure from the Bavarian employers' associations. Electric cars and green electricity No decisions, but progress: The coalition now at least knows what to do with electric cars and green electricity. There has recently been a dispute on both questions: With electromobility, because the Federal Finance Minister, for example, did not believe in buying premiums for customers. And with green electricity, because parts of the Union insist on a throttled expansion, especially of wind energy. The federal government wants to talk to the auto industry about the promotion of electromobility this month - apparently also in order to derive its own contribution from it. And the reorganization of green electricity subsidies is now to be discussed with the Prime Minister. Pension After the big words of CSU boss Horst Seehofer and the SPD chairman Sigmar Gabriel, who suddenly rediscovered that the level of pensions (measured against the average wage) is falling, initially rather small deeds follow. Federal Labor Minister Andrea Nahles (SPD) will initially continue to work on a draft for the life benefit pension provided for in the coalition agreement. With this, the federal government wants to top up the pensions of long-term insured low-wage earners. But whether this will really happen is doubted, at least behind the scenes. The lowering of the pension level decided by the red-green federal government will not be shaken for the time being. That is more of a task for the next federal government. It is more likely that the private supplementary pension (Riester pension) and, above all, the company pension scheme will be reformed. The goal: The state-subsidized provision should be used more by low-income earners. Inheritance tax How companies can be bequeathed without the tax burden damaging them too much remains open. "Similarities have been identified," said the Chancellor. But obviously the differences too. Above all, the CSU is demanding further relief, much to the annoyance of the Social Democrats. The Chancellor must finally make it clear whether CSU boss Seehofer "may continue to block the coalition because of the concerns of the lobby of the millions heirs," said SPD parliamentary deputy Carsten Schneider. miba, steb, tö AN ICON INCREASES IN SIZE THE NAVITIMER 46 mm 3 THE PAGE THREE DEFGH No. 87, Friday, April 15, 2016 Clinic under the palm trees Above lives Hollywood, below are crowds of young sea lions. On the beach in Malibu it becomes clear what happens when the sea gets too warm, they can even stroke themselves or feed them with canned sardines, "says Jonsie Ross," but in fact that is more harmful and leads to faster death because they cook the food often suffocate from it. ”Thor weighs less than his birth weight, has probably never caught a fish in his life and is now coming to the“ fish school ”, the sea lion spa. Jennifer Brooks of the California Wildlife Center first paints a frog green stripe on his forehead to distinguish him from the other sea lions. The vet prescribes antibiotics. Catching is just the beginning: the animals have to be dewormed and fed three times a day. This is a full-time job for at least three professionals and is more reminiscent of force-feeding hunger strikers. Jennifer Brooks catches Thor with double-reinforced Kevlar gloves and kneels carefully on him to keep him steady with her body weight. “As comfortable as a sofa,” she says. Rehabilitation coordinator Mike Remski quickly pushes a plastic tube into the mouth of the young sea lion and pumps him water and a vitamin-rich mackerel porridge into his stomach: “He is dehydrated because sea lions ingest their fluids with their food, and if they can't find anything to eat, they get it no liquid. ”Thor is supposed to get three to four kilos of fish porridge every day until he can eat whole fish himself. by michaela haas In front of Chris Hemsworth's house in Malibu there is another one: a sea lion cub, weighing nine kilos, already too exhausted to flee. The animal turns its black eyes anxiously on the three-man troop, who are advancing over the rocks with nets and a cage, rears up and croaks loudly, as if it could avert an impending danger. “See how the neck bones stick out and how the skin wrinkles. It should actually weigh at least twice as much and look round like a beer barrel, ”says Jonsie Ross from the California Wildlife Center. With a quick movement of the arm, she puts a fishing net over the young animal, and together with her assistants she pushes it into the dog cage that she has brought with her. “Just don't try that on your own,” she says, “the little ones may look cute, but their bite is ten times stronger than that of a dog. They can break the bones of your hand with one bite. ”Chris Hemsworth called emergency services. In Hollywood, the Australian actor saved the earth from the ice giants as the reincarnation of the indomitable mega-hero Thor, but here, at his second home in Malibu, even the well-trained superstar feels powerless in the face of a natural disaster. At the top, on the cliffs of Point Dume, are the palaces of the successful. Miley Cyrus, Matthew McConaughey, Pink and many other stars enjoy the panoramic view of the Pacific here. The humpback whales pass almost directly under their mansions on their way to Northern California, and a dozen dolphins jump through the waves. Pamela Anderson, without make-up, scrubs the dirty cages with bleach. Nature goes crazy, she lets poisonous algae grow, and sea lions let their young ones down. Just a few hundred meters further down by the rocks, the idyll turns into a stinking one Graveyard. Jonsie Ross counts nine emaciated sea lion cubs, she will only be able to take three of them with her today, the others she has to starve to death. In German zoos, Californian sea lions have not only been the number one audience favorites since the television series “Hallo, Robbie!”. But hardly anyone knows that the young sea lions are struggling to survive in their homeland. The rescuers speak of a “sea lion tsunami” because thousands of exhausted young animals are washed ashore on the California coast. From Long Beach in the south to up to Oregon in the north, biologists everywhere try to feed as many animals as possible. The rescue stations are overcrowded. As early as 2013, the responsible state authority NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) diagnosed an "extraordinary mass extinction". Since then, the extraordinary has become a habit. The number of stranded animals is increasing and increasing. There were 3,500 in the spring of 2015 alone, more than ten times as many as usually at this time of year, looks like this year, in 2016, there will be a new negative record. “You just can't find anything to eat,” says Ross. The sea lions are not critically endangered, but the reasons why the intelligent marine mammals fail to find food should also interest the intelligent mammals on land: humans. The ocean is too warm and too acidic. The trilogy of ocean warming, acidification and overfishing has emptied the Pacific. A vicious circle. The global weather phenomenon El Niño not only produces tornadoes in Mexico, famine in Africa and floods in England, but also increases global warming. El Niño has the Pacific for volunteers who capture stranded sea lions, like here in Laguna Beach, must be careful. The young could bite. warmed up to two to five degrees, and the sea lions' staple food, the high-fat anchovies and sardines, are expelled or decimated. Overfishing has given the sardines the rest: only less than ten percent of the nutritious fish are left. What grows instead are carpets of algae, which contain a neurotoxin that can be fatal to sea lions. “The sea lions are only the most visible victims of water warming,” says biologist Sharon Melin, who specializes in sea lions. “The sea lions are an indicator of the health of the oceans because they are sensitive to small changes.But the warm temperatures probably also affect many other living beings, from the smallest plankton to large mammals, and we do not even recognize these changes. ”Even the recognizable changes show that nature is going crazy: poisonous sea snakes that otherwise only continue south in Mexico are suddenly appearing on California beaches. The starfish that decoratively populated the rocks on the Pacific Ocean until a few years ago have almost completely disappeared. And the sea lion mothers, who usually give birth to a cub once a year in the California Channel Islands and then feed it for almost a year, abandon their offspring to save themselves. The little sea lion from Point Dume is put in the dog cage in the minibus and driven to the headquarters of the Wildlife Center in the Santa Monica Mountains. There are already 18 conspecifics barking loudly and three young elephant seals waiting in a temporary private enclosure with a children's pool. Sea lions love to snuggle up to each other, but they also fight very loudly for food when Jonsie Ross enters the enclosure with a bucket of mackerel. During the training, the helpers are taught not to humanize animals, not to give them any nicknames, and to only see them for what they are: wild animals, which ideally will also be released back into the wild. But in view of the velvety brown fur, the heart-shaped nose and the googly eyes that seek eye contact, such warnings are of course doomed to failure from the outset: The current newcomer also quickly becomes “the little Thor”. Little Thor is about six months old - actually he should have stayed with his mother until at least the ninth month, or better still until the eleventh. But the mothers swim further away from their youngest in search of food and often don't make it back in time. By the way, the fathers are better off because they don't care what happens to the boys. According to nature, you are not responsible. They are unbound bachelors and head out to the richer waters of Oregon or even Alaska. The mothers, on the other hand, are forced to stay with their children because there is no fish in the sea? Then off to the fish restaurant! Our picture shows a baby seal in February, in the famous "Marine Room" in La Jolla. PHOTO: REUTERS PHOTO: JAE C. HONG / AP fish-poor waters. Because they are malnourished themselves, their young are often born with a birth weight that is too low. NOAA pilot Mark Lowry has been flying to the Channel Islands every year for 35 years, where 99 percent of sea lions are born. This year, he says, the boys are particularly small and weak compared to last year, even smaller than last year. More than half of the boys starve to death on the Channel Islands, others go looking for food alone or are washed into the sea by the current. Letting baby sea lions that are only a few months old is about as dangerous as leaving a bunch of toddlers who have just learned to walk in the wild. The mini-lions are too weak to brace themselves against the surf, swim disoriented in their enemies' mouths and have not yet learned to catch fish. In February, a baby sea lion wandered into the first-class fish restaurant Marine Room in La Jolla at night, swung himself on a bench and waited there at the table until the morning staff unlocked the restaurant as if it wanted to order fish tacos al dente for breakfast. Shortly before, sheriffs had picked up a sea lion cub 20 kilometers inland on the shoulder of a freeway. How did it get there? Maybe it swam through one of the sewers. Those who are found are lucky. Others starve to death, are bitten to death by dogs running free or endangered by well-meaning but often unsuspecting tourists. “If they are too exhausted, it is mainly the big oil companies that pollute the seas and the big shipping companies that fish them empty - and it is above all committed private individuals who try to save what can still be saved. The wildlife center is financed almost entirely from private donations; Like Jennifer Brooks, most of the helpers are volunteers who collect plastic waste from the beaches for free or raise orphaned squirrel babies with the pipette. They take in not only marine mammals, but all native wild animals: seagulls with broken wings, malnourished cormorants, pelicans with fish hooks in their throats, orphaned fawns and mountain lions that swallow rat poison with their prey. At the moment a one-eyed owl is waiting for an eye operation, three coyotes are waiting to be released into the wild and a hawk is waiting for his broken foot to be splinted. And because this is Malibu, in the center you can also find Pamela Anderson without make-up, who scrubs dirty cages with bleach, or tattoo artist Kat Von D, who helps feed the sea lions in bulky yellow plastic overalls. The animal rights activists know that their rescue operations are just a kind of consolation. “We regard sea lions as sacred animals,” says Geoff Shester of the environmental organization Oceana, “but in the end it is short-sighted to believe that we can save them by catching them, nursing them, and then sending them back into the sea if it's easy there not enough food. That makes sense from a humane point of view, but it only treats the symptom, not the cause. ”Chris Hemsworth, the great Thor, has now flown back to Australia and the little Thor is waiting to return to Point Dume. Six weeks after being put in the dog cage, he has gained almost ten kilos and looks almost like the cover model in the oversize catalog. Perhaps it will turn into a mighty 300 kilo colossus after all, a real fighter who lives up to its name. Need for change Is an election campaign already? One would think, if one listens to what the top politicians of the coalition have to announce after their nightly meeting of christoph hickmann Berlin - one would rather not be Heiko Maas. This does not apply across the board and in general, after all, Maas is, among other things, a man who is always very well dressed, but this Thursday noon it definitely applies, and not just for him. You don't want to be Heiko Maas, Thomas de Maizière or Andrea Nahles, i.e. neither the Federal Minister of Justice, nor the Federal Minister of the Interior, nor the Federal Minister of Labor on Thursday lunchtime, because the task of these three is to attend a press conference for a good half an hour without saying anything. Every now and then you can smile, sometimes nod, and once Maas and de Maizière even whisper, if only briefly. However, they are neither given the floor, nor are they asked questions. Only the other three are allowed to speak. The leaders. Chancellery, press conference on the coalition committee; Maas, de Maizière and Nahles sit in front of a blue wall and frame Sigmar Gabriel, Angela Merkel and Horst Seehofer, the chairmen of the coalition parties. This is a remarkable event simply because of the fact that the three bosses appear together - after the key protagonists of this alliance had concentrated in the previous months on giving each other ultimatums, blocking legislative proposals or campaigning against each other in various federal states to lead. Well, after a long meeting of the coalition committee, it's a rather pleasant appearance for Sigmar Gabriel, he quickly switches to party convention mode, the end of which is a not that long list of results, so the question is how much these three still have in common and how this should continue until late summer 2017. The other, not so important question is why Maas, de Maizière and Nahles actually came with us. But that will not be answered at the end of this performance either. And thus to the coalition, in which meanwhile even the self-evident are no longer self-evident, but have to be specially emphasized. In any case, the Chancellor, who is allowed to speak first, says right at the beginning that "essential, qualitative decisions" had been made the night before. And while you are still thinking about whether decisions by the government should somehow always be “qualitative” or something in the direction, Merkel says this word again: With the project of an integration law, you have made “qualitative progress”. To add shortly afterwards that they have jointly taken a further “qualitative step” in the fight against terrorism. After the third or fourth “qualitative”, the message is fairly clear, that this coalition is still and undoubtedly capable of high-quality government action. More than that, it accomplishes something historical. Not only the Chancellor, but after her also the SPD chairman and the CSU boss declare that the night before they had agreed on the first integration law. Gabriel says: “For the first time in the history of the republic.” Seehofer says: “The first in the history of our country.” And what happens next? Gabriel replied, who announced that the good cooperation the evening before would certainly shape "the further cooperation of the coalition until the end of the legislative period" - which seems as if it is his concern to clarify this again: We will stay together . Until the end. For Gabriel this is an appearance of the more pleasant kind, after all there are only press people in front of him and not party friends, with whom he doesn't always have it easy and currently just a little less than usual. Nevertheless, Gabriel changes from the Vice Chancellor to the party convention mode every now and then, speaks about “politics for the common people” and says: “Those who work hard in Germany must be treated decently.” Or: “Internal security is a social democratic issue” - because: “Only very rich people can have a poor state And that is the real realization of this performance: Yes, you can pull yourself together a few more times and find compromises, for example with temporary work, which is one of the topics on which you did not agree on the night before. At the same time, however, one is practically already in the election campaign. This becomes even clearer on another topic that came up in the press conference - it is about the pension. For some time now there has been a race to see who can tackle the topic the fastest. Of course, the word “need for action” is the greatest. There can't be enough of them occupied, the most convincing warnings about poverty in old age and the loudest calls for a major, but this time really sustainable, comprehensive, if possible final pension reform. Above all, the CSU and SPD have stood out here, which is why it is logical that Horst Seehofer and Sigmar Gabriel, when appearing in front of the journalists, have a small competition to see who will make the most impressive point on the subject of pensions. "What is very important to me," says Seehofer, is the "future of pension insurance". However, as the CSU boss says, the pension policy is “not necessarily suitable for a gigantic party political profile”. He actually says exactly that, whereupon Gabriel has another turn and points out that one also has to take care of those people who “do not take any precautions at all” for their age. You now have to first make an “overall view”. Seehofer replied: “I'm very happy that we completely agree on the need for action.” So who might be the right person to not only deal with the problems, but also to solve them? Horst Seehofer leaves little room for interpretation: "I am perhaps the one who has been through the most pension reforms in Germany since the mid-1970s." Andrea Nahles is responsible for the subject of pensions in the government. She is sitting right next to Horst Seehofer. Sometimes she smiles, sometimes she nods. And then, after a good half an hour, she is allowed to go again. 4 OPINION Friday, April 15, 2016, No. 87 DEFGH KO A L I T I O N CURRENT LEXICON The power of circumstances Bankrupt by nico fried This government is not pushing things forward. It is being driven The coalition has now counteracted this impression again, not lively and thirsty for action, rather driven and obeying the need. After all, some ministers in the shadow of the party dispute have worked purposefully and comparatively silently. But that doesn't change the fact that, above all, the power of the relationships pushes the black-red partners in front of them - and the government would not reveal a convincing design claim from within itself. In this coalition committee too, at least as many issues were postponed as decided. Of course, this also has something to do with the complexity of some matter. When reading the protocols of the results, the reader not only finds all kinds of political expressions of will, but also unresolved questions that are marked as “checkpoints”. The Union and the SPD have therefore reached the level of concretization that the CDU, CSU and FDP did in their coalition agreement in 2009. In the end, it was a single test and sealed an alliance whose time is not exactly remembered as glorious. Two topics describe particularly clearly how this current government either lives from hand to mouth or is already politically hungry: On the one hand, there is the Integration Act, which has a big name, although it is a collection of rather small-scale measures, and that On Thursday, Angela Merkel and Horst Seehofer suddenly inflated it to a historic achievement - just as if their two parties had fought for decades for more efforts to promote immigrants and their integration (and not against it, as it was in truth). Now it is the influx of refugees alone that has enforced this law; thus, paradoxically, the CDU and CSU also boast of unity in dealing with a problem about the origin of which they still have completely different opinions. The other issue is retirement. Horst Seehofer said that there was agreement that something had to be done. That - like Merkel's and Gabriel's similar statements - sounded as if the problem of impending old-age poverty was completely new for the generations who are currently financing pensions. The opposite is the case. But only at the end of the third year of their second joint reign and at the end of the eleventh year of Chancellor Merkel should the conversation with business and trade unions be sought - an alliance for retirement, as it were, like Gerhard Schröder's alliance for work, which at that time was nowhere ended. This should also be the case for this discussion group in the year before the federal election. Of course, this government will hold up until the next election. The country is doing too well to really suffer under this government. And under the given circumstances there is no alternative - especially not for the three party leaders. Angela Merkel has always preferred to rule with the SPD. Thanks to their refugee policy, the reverse is now also true. Horst Seehofer needs federal politics to celebrate his irreplaceability in front of the CSU. And Sigmar Gabriel can only derive the authority that he has lost as head of the SPD from his duties as Minister of Economics and Vice Chancellor. Another selfie sz-drawing: Burkhard Mohr SCHLECKER A bad entrepreneur from marc beise V on Anton Schlecker there is new news, and soon there will be even more: The Stuttgart public prosecutor has brought charges against the ex-drugstore entrepreneur, it is about possible criminal offenses in connection with the bankruptcy of his chain of stores in 2012. The man urges fair treatment, please do not try to judge him in public. That is a legitimate concern. Not every charge leads to conviction, least of all in complicated economic proceedings, and indeed the facts are intricate. The extent to which capital transfers, gifts and transfers of property in the millions were permitted or whether they were bankrupt in the face of looming insolvency will have to be carefully examined in court. But one thing can already be said today, without any prejudice: the Schlecker family business was not an adornment of his class. Family entrepreneurs sing with In- BÖHMERMANN What could be measured from stefan kornelius J to Böhmermann apparently knew exactly what he was doing when he reviled the Turkish President. At least he advised Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he should now hire a lawyer in Germany. But nowhere does it say that the lawyer has to be called Angela Merkel. According to the law, Turkey is formally fully entitled to demand that Böhmermann be prosecuted. The government only has one loophole: it can refuse to go through with the proceedings if it wants to avert serious damage to foreign policy. This is what the so-called authorization reservation in the law provides. This serious damage would probably only occur if Merkel decided against Erdoğan.So is the President forcing them into submission? There is an elegant way out: the government cannot cite foreign policy reasons to fend off the criminal complaint - there are none. Nor can it judge the freedom of satire. That is a matter for the courts. The Chancellor can only dismiss the matter with a relaxed gesture - foreign policy remains foreign policy, and law remains law. The federal government does what it is responsible for, the courts deal with their matter. That neat lesson in separation of powers is now in order. Otherwise, the same applies to Erdoğan: Anyone who gets their political partners into such a mess will not get what they need most - trust. SPD pure power struggle by jens schneider M ichael Müller experienced an unexpected political spring as the new governing mayor of Berlin. It was a year ago, the pale Social Democrat had just taken over from Klaus Wowereit, the Berliners were happy to finally have someone new at the top. Müller's alleged flaw was reinterpreted as a virtue. There was no longer any talk of paleness, but of modesty and closeness to the citizens. Müller cleverly cultivated the role, he soon achieved great poll numbers. That spell is gone. Müller came more and more into the criticism, especially because of the many inadequacies in the reception of refugees in Berlin. It was over with his sovereignty. He was sensitive, looking for scapegoats instead of leading. And in this situation he now claims the chairmanship of the SPD in the capital. He wants to align the party according to his ideas, which is an understandable claim for a head of government. What is irritating, however, is how little elegant this happens. Müller served the current chairman Jan Stöß publicly instead of finding an understanding with the man who had taken this office away from him four years ago. This is a pure demonstration of power - and not yet a sign of the leadership that Müller needs to win the election in September. F L U G PA S S A G I E R E Dates of fear from thomas kirchner E uropas airlines will have a lot to say. The European Parliament has finally decided that in future they will have to pass on very detailed information about their passengers to the authorities: name, address, credit card number, route, food on board. The data is anonymized after six months, but kept for a total of five years. The aim is to fish out terror suspects or other serious criminals from the mass of information that could otherwise not be found. In principle, this information is nobody's business, after all, it is not collected when traveling by train or car. In this respect, it is a not inconsiderable restriction of personal freedom. Does it really have to be? It was not for nothing that there was a dispute for five years about this directive, with which the regulations in all EU countries are to be harmonized (Great Britain has been collecting for a long time, other countries are doing nothing). And for a long time it looked as if data protectionists could prevail, who see feigned drive in the collection and instead plead for better staffing of the police. In the face of ever new threats, fear has won. That is unfortunate, but understandable. If this directive can prevent a single attack, then it was necessary. the high song of the honorable merchant burns out. They create value for society, care for their employees and operate sustainably. They are the opposite of greedy managers who move from one top job to the next like mercenaries: this is how family entrepreneurs see themselves, and mostly rightly. They are successful and are the much touted backbone of the German economy. This process would have a cleaning effect Anton Schlecker but it was different. Even in its most successful time, when there was hardly a town without a blue-and-white Schlecker branch, the sheen exuded by this billion-dollar empire created out of nowhere was dull. In the almost provocatively carelessly furnished shops, the misery could be grasped with hands. If you talked to the shop assistants, they spoke of unreasonable working conditions, degrading regulations and a lack of appreciation. It was different elsewhere. That's the nice thing about the drugstore industry that, given an almost identical range, you can identify the differences in corporate culture in terms of external appearances. Schlecker was cheap for the customer, but also cheap as a company - but extremely lucrative for the owner family, which - treacherously enough - hid from customers and employees. Even the company's success was not what it should be. More and more new stores drove sales up and masked the problems - until the moment when the whole building collapsed. But then you noticed that it was by no means solidly built. Whether or not there were embezzlement and the delay in bankruptcy in addition to bankruptcy - the mere fact that these business practices are dealt with in the course of the process has a cleansing effect on the market economy. It strengthens the good companies - those that not only make profit, but also create value. PROFILE Hardly anyone in Kiev had recently doubted that Volodymyr Hrojsman would become Ukraine's new head of government. The question was rather: when? His predecessor Arseniy Yatsenjuk had long been counted - famous, graphic evidence of this was the moment at the beginning of the coalition crisis when a critic simply picked up the physically lightweight ex-prime minister and tried to carry it away from the lectern. Yatsenjuk clung to the desk like a drowning man, while the plump, sturdy and heavy-blooded-looking Hroysman watched from the seat of the President of Parliament. Over the past few weeks, Hrojsman's friend and sponsor, President Petro Poroshenko, has made it clear again and again that Hrosjman is his ideal successor for Yatsenjuk; on Thursday, Hrojsman was elected with a secure majority. He starts a tough job - how tough, his predecessor, who certainly wasn't lacking in self-confidence and contacts, could tell him a lot about it. The 38-year-old Hrojsman, however, is unimpressed. Even before the election, he said to the MPs: “I'll show you what it means to lead a country.” He will be the three biggest PHOTO: REUTERS S elten enough it happens that Angela Merkel, Horst Seehofer and Sigmar Gabriel together occur. But if they only take 45 minutes for a press conference and appear too late, it is completely clear that they are not interested in in-depth information, but in staged symbolism. Only the image of the community should remain from this day and at least until the next row to make you forget that two deeply divided union leaders and a social democratic party leader rule this country in the struggle for survival. What the coalition presented after a seven-hour session looks like a surprising amount at first. But that has less to do with the fact that the results are really generous than with the fact that the expectations of this government have recently fallen sharply. In other words: For the first time in a long time, one of the many top-level meetings resulted in something more than just a patchwork of controversial topics. A few weeks ago, the endless struggle for a detail such as family reunification for refugees in need of subsidiary protection no longer seemed like the expression of a temporary efficiency deficit, but already as a warning sign of the ultimate wear and tear. Volodymyr Hrojsman New Prime Minister of Ukraine with ambitious goals to fight the country's dangers: corruption, inefficiency and populism. In any case, assertiveness cannot be denied to the president's preferred candidate: Hrosjman, who like Poroshenko comes from Vinnytsia, worked as a teenager as a locksmith, had his first small company at the age of 16, took his high school diploma and studied, and at 28 became the youngest mayor of his hometown ; his re-election gave him a dream result of 80 percent. Poroshenko became aware of the popular doer and manager in Vinnytsia early on. After the Maidan he supported, he quickly became Deputy Minister for Regional Development, and Poroshenko then had his confidante elected President of Parliament in autumn 2014. The loyal puller, who organized majorities behind the scenes and helped to hold the parliamentary group, the Poroshenko Bloc, together, should also keep an eye on the power-conscious Prime Minister Yatsenyuk and the populist Yulia Tymoshenko. Many MPs who were unhappy with Jazenjuk's administration or who consider him corrupt are now relying on the president's husband. While still a minister, he coordinated aid for war refugees and displaced persons from Donbass and later led the investigation into the shooting down of flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine. His cabinet lacks prominent reformers and experts trained abroad - but instead, it is said, the government and the president might finally be pulling together. If the path continues in the direction of reforms, then, say the supporters of the Maidan idea, the country at least still has a chance. cathrin kahlweit There are words that are often and at the same time used incorrectly in colloquial language. One of these is bankruptcy: one of them tells the other that the Meyer or Müller company has gone bankrupt - on the assumption that bankruptcy is another word for insolvency. But it is not. "Insolvency" means insolvency and leads to the opening of insolvency proceedings. Bankruptcy, on the other hand, is a criminal offense as defined in Section 283 of the Criminal Code. For example, someone is guilty of any impending or actual insolvency to remove assets that belong to the bankruptcy estate in the event of insolvency proceedings. This is exactly what the public prosecutor's office accuses the former drugstore entrepreneur Anton Schlecker. In addition, he is said to have misrepresented the circumstances in his group in the years before the bankruptcy, given incorrect information to the bankruptcy court and affirmed this in lieu of an oath. Bankruptcy can result in a fine or up to five years in prison. Colloquially one could say that Schlecker apparently smashed a lot of porcelain, but that would also be imprecise; at least the wrong language image. “Bankrott” is borrowed from the Italian bancarotta, the smashed table. If a money changer became insolvent in the Renaissance, the authorities smashed the table at which he was doing his work with an ax. de. LOOK INTO THE PRESS The controversy surrounding Jan Böhmermann is now being commented on internationally, in papers from the Netherlands, Denmark and Latvia: “The whole thing has gotten so out of hand that Chancellor Merkel now has a problem. By calling Böhmermann's satire “hurtful”, she has caused bad blood. The comedian's tirades are really not subtle. The point is that such statements are possible in a democratic society. ”“ Instead of letting the free press and its satirists work freely, Angela Merkel apologized to Erdoğan, but as the sad course of the matter has shown, he wants more. Now Erdoğan also wants the law on his side and has taken legal action. Merkel's apology is interpreted as a kneeling before Erdoğan. The whole affair is a dreary illustration of what happens when you bend over to pressure. You get more pressure, not less. ”“ A satire about the authoritarian Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which has seriously upset Ankara, gives German Chancellor Merkel a big headache. On the one hand, good relations with Turkey are very important for them to deal with the European refugee crisis. On the other hand, it cannot oppose freedom of expression and the freedom of the press, which is a cornerstone of German democracy. Heribert Prantl MEMBER OF THE EDITORIAL IN CHIEF, DIGITAL PROJECTS: Stefan Plöchinger I N T E G R AT I O N S G E S E T Z Nickels by heribert prantl on every corner A ight at first sight, one is happy; at the second one is astonished; horrified at the third. The cornerstones for an integration law become more and more angular and repellent the more often you read them. At first one is happy that there is so much talk of integration; But then you can see which questionable motto the whole thing follows: Integration through more bureaucracy. The planned regulations require a tremendous administrative effort, with which refugees are to be controlled at every turn. In the bureaucratic mill, the refugees should refute the mistrust that this law brings them in principle and comprehensively. Nickeleien are waiting for the refugees everywhere, and benefits are threatened everywhere. The planned law suffers from a narrow concept of integration. It focuses on the job market. There is not a word about school and school social work; nor about associations and religious communities that are so important for integration. The offers for integration courses should be expanded; instead, the maximum number of participants will be increased from 20 to 25; and that with so different people with contrasting cultural experiences. What's good about the design? There are new rules for measures promoting training that can begin after a relatively short period of time. It is wise to give the refugees and their training companies the security that they will not be deported in the middle of their apprenticeship; the young refugees (but only those with good prospects to stay) receive a tolerance for the duration of their training. After all, which company will want to train when the sword of Damocles of deportation hovers over the training relationship? And who likes to learn with the necessary effort if they don't know whether they will still be in the country for the exam? The planned law is characterized by mistrust of refugees. But: What do these regulations help a refugee who is not yet ready for training, who first needs vocational preparation measures? The charities do this wonderfully in their dormitories - but you don't give them the time of rest and legal security that it needs. And it is bad and unwise to sort the young people according to the Cinderella principle: Those who have good prospects to stay are trained; those who do not seem to have good prospects to stay should hang around. That is foolish, that is only intended to serve as a deterrent. Instead, the law now creates “100,000 additional work opportunities” for asylum seekers “for a low-threshold introduction to the German labor market”. Translated, this means: You can create 100,000 one-euro jobs. Compulsory residence for all refugees will be comprehensively introduced. They should only be allowed to live in the city or region to which they are assigned. Firstly, this hinders integration; Second, this is illegal for recognized refugees and refugees under the Geneva Refugee Convention. According to Article 26, refugees have the right to choose their place of residence freely. It is particularly bitter that there is no old case regulation. Without them, the gigantic backlog of asylum applications will not be able to be dismantled. It would make sense to grant temporary residence permits to refugees from Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan who registered as asylum seekers by January 1st, in exchange for withdrawal of their asylum application. Old case regulations have worked well in the past. You clear the table. In summary: the planned integration law does not deserve the name. There is still a lot of work to be done on this.
