In thuringia, cdu deputies are clinging to their advantage; the party must align itself not in terms of personnel but in terms of content with merkel’s pragmatic emptiness

Georgia: a torn country

Georgia has lost two provinces in the war against russia – and its political balance

Sosar subari does not trust the effect of his words. He lets pictures speak. "Look," he says. Subari opens a laptop. A film starts on the screen. A scene in black and white unfolds, captured by the surveillance camera of a bank in the georgian capital tbilisi.

A car enters the picture from the left. A second one follows, shears in front of the first one, forces it to stop. Three masked men jump out. One rubs the right rear door of the first car. Two pull out a man. Then they strike. Fists hit the victim. A few minutes later the thugs jump back into the car and speed away. The victim remains lying.

The enemy in his own country?

Are u.S. Neo-nazis involved in the attacks in the u.S.??

The whole western world seems to know only one enemy since the attack on the wtc and the pentagon – usama bin ladin and his terrorist network al-qaeda, as the symbol of middle eastern terrorism. Never since the days of german national socialism has an enemy image been condemned so unanimously in the media around the world as islamist terrorism has been in the last two weeks. The evidence published so far is unequivocal: suicide attacks against key u.S. Facilities and simultaneous disappearances of radical islamist adherents around the world. Their names appear on the passenger lists of the crashed planes, with seats close to the cockpit. Some of them were pilots. A koran, flight plan in arabic in a parked rental car. Rumors, which became known only after the assassinations, according to which usama bin ladin had a "an unprecedented attack on u.S. Soil took place" announced ….

And even when the terror was continued with the help of anthrax agents, nobody seemed to seriously doubt that bin ladin’s organization was responsible for it this time as well. This may have been a misjudgement, as is now becoming clear, since even bush can no longer rule out american terrorists as the perpetrators of the attacks.

Grand coalition wants co2-related vehicle tax from 2010

He cdu is pleased about a "breakthrough" in the reform of the motor vehicle tax. According to the will of the parties supporting the federal government, the reform is to take effect on 1 january 2009. January 2010 – one year later than originally intended. The federal government is to receive around 9 billion euros a year in vehicle tax revenue, which has so far gone to the federal states. This is a result of the meeting of the coalition committee on wednesday evening.

The states are to receive compensation for their previous revenues from the motor vehicle tax, as spd parliamentary group leader peter struck and baden-wurttemberg’s minister president gunther oettinger (cdu), among others, unanimously announced to the tagesschau . Both want to present the decision as a recommendation to the federalism commission, which they chair. Opposite n-tv oettinger said that this would make the federal government "fully responsible" for vehicle taxation in the future.

If the states agree to the government’s plan, the way would be clear to redesign the vehicle tax and levy it on new vehicles on the basis of co2 emissions. According to the ard morning show csu chairman erwin huber explained today that a linear co2-based tax rate is planned for new vehicles and reiterated that old cars should not be taxed more heavily than they are now. In contrast, it was not until the end of april that the federal ministry of finance announced plans to increase the tax burden on 16 million vehicle owners.

Does reflection make you greedy?

Psychologists claim to have found out that people spontaneously tend to social behavior, while rational considerations make them selfish

Subjects who decide quickly behave more cooperatively. That’s one finding of a study that just appeared in nature. Harvard university psychologists used a series of strategic games to investigate how strongly time prere influences social orientation. This showed that the faster decision-makers behaved more socially. If, on the other hand, they were encouraged to think carefully about their actions, they were less oriented toward the common good.

David g. Rand, the study’s leader, emphasizes that for the first time, the focus of the experiments was not on observable behavior, but on cognitive processes. The authors of the study, titled "spontaneous giving and calculated greed" however, they not only report their findings, but also draw far-reaching conclusions. Those who want to demand prosocial behavior, they say, must appeal to the emotions rather than to the intellect. "Because reflection undermines social impulses", arguments should be used sparingly. "Encouraging decision makers to act as rationally as possible may have the unintended side effect of making them more selfish".
