Rosler seeks economic cooperation with as-sisi

Agyptian stability is center of gravity in region, wef managing director says

It was a conversation not quite on eye level. The former german minister of economics seems to fix the prayer stain on the forehead of the savior of egypt instead of looking him in the eye. So it shows the snapshot of yesterday’s meeting between philipp rosler and abdel-fattah as-sisi. Now, conversations take place in an atmosphere determined by many signals, which can tip over, so it could be taken as a stormy sign of impoliteness, if one fixes the other with the look into the eyes. And rosler certainly did not want to be unhoflich.

When not so long ago, in january 2013, egypt’s former president mohammed mursi visited the then federal minister of economics and technology in berlin, rosler explained to journalists how he had been able to rely on his interlocutor from the ranks of the muslim brotherhood "recall" the political tenet that economic investment is only conceivable if cairo guarantees respect for human rights.


Photon pairs remain fragmented despite evidence

An ir-vis interface for qubits could connect fine quantum computers via glass fibers

Swiss researchers have built an interface for optical qubits to be implemented between photons of different wavelengths, here from the visible in the infrared spectral range. To replace qubits, pairs of worried photons are suitable. If the optical excitation energy is of an atom, which stores a qubit, in the visible, then the qubit now can now send by means of fiber in the infrared wavelength range.

Alkali atoms can absorb or transmit visible light, see, for example, orange luminous sodium vapor lamps of the strain lighting. The luminous electrons of this cum grano salesis hydrogenahn atoms are suitable for storing qubits (cf.Quantum computers will have a bad thought) in terms of quantum computers (cf. Basic research for quantum computer). However, a qubit alone does not yet make a quantum computer coupled to qubits, for example, visually, which is not quite trivial.


Short of the solar service: end of the boom?

The new government wants to brief the solar power requirement from 2010. Currently, the industry is booming, thanks to the renewable energy service law (eeg)

Whether the mending records after the renewable energy law (eeg) are really overhanged and what a shortness could do, it is violently arguing. Economic lobbies and consumer centers make mood for an immediate short up to 30 percent. But the goods but the "deathtop" for the solar economy, in contrast, solar association and environmental protection.

The solar power threatens to suffocate his own success. For more severe, consumer associations and energy experts have been talking to reduce eeg consumption by up to 30 percent. Currently owners receive solar systems – depending on whether it is an outdoor or building system – according to renewable energy law (eeg) 32 to 43 cents per kilowatt hour. The repayment sentences, which are ultimately paid by consumers on the electricity price, are relatively high compared to electricity from wind, organic and geothermal energy.


Spain’s dirty climate policy

As a major climate change stakeholder, spain is moving further away from agreed climate change targets, although the sunny country could meet its energy needs with renewables in the future

Climate change continues and europe will also suffer significantly from the changing conditions. According to a recent study, the mediterranean and alpine regions will be particularly hard hit by the changes. Spain, a major stakeholder, moves further and further away from climate change targets, according to sustainability study. Instead of being a leader in violating the kyoto protocol, the country could be a role model in the use of renewable energies. Greenpeace calculates that the sunny country could cover its projected energy consumption for 2050 with renewable energies.

"The potential for damage to various european regions in the face of global change will increase in the coming decades, leading to problems in agriculture, forestry, nature conservation, energy and water management, and tourism", says the study published in the journal science (more drought and flooding in europe).


Usa: pursuit of military dominance obsolete

Usa: quest for military domination obsolete

The chairman of the armed services oversight committee sees the claim by low-cost, "tiny little drones" undermined

"The u.S. Should abandon its quest for military dominance", that is an unusual phrase these days. Just recently, the swedish sipri institute (stockholm international peace research institute) calculated a new high in global investment in military strike power. A whopping 1.$981 billion is said to have been spent on armament worldwide in 2020. Top of the list was the usa with 778 billion dollars. This is equivalent to 39 percent of global military spending (rallying despite pandemic).

On the refugee situation in greece and germany

At first it was the name i stumbled upon: habibi.Works, a project for refugees near ioannina. Later i learned that the word "habibi" comes from the arabic and means treasure or darling. And only then i realized that there are also plenty of refugees in the northwest of greece. In the region of epirus there are about 3.000 refugees. And so i decided to spend some time in this region during my trip to greece this year. The katsikas refugee camp is located on the outskirts of katsikas, a town six kilometers from ioannina, in an arrangement of mostly gray, old hangars. This former military camp still has the status of a military area. This refugee camp with about 900 refugees is managed by the asb on behalf of the greek state, with the support of the unhcr.


Hackers do not live dangerously

The hacker tron, an injunction against wikipedia and the conspiracy theories around his death

The hacker boris f. Alias "tron" is still found seven years after his death on 17. October 1998 no peace. A district court in berlin has now enforced an injunction against wikipedia on behalf of his parents: his real name is no longer to be mentioned. The emotive word "tron" is still good for numerous flame wars on the internet. The topic and the person have developed a virtual life of their own, which has only marginal to do with reality.

The berlin district court, which dealt with the case in early december, initially failed to decide who could be served with a german injunction against wikipedia. Under the case number 209c 1015/05 it was ied on the 14th of december.12.In 2005, a temporary injunction "against the wikimedia foundation inc, 200 2nd ave. South 258, 33701-4312 st. Petersburg, russian foderation" – because of special urgency without oral hearing.


United under the flag

Israel’s military has entered gaza, mobilizing tens of thousands of reservists. Unlike the air strikes, the ground offensive is supported by only a few israelis

The incursion began shortly after nightfall. Immediately after the start of the ground offensive, shots were heard on the israeli side of the border; hamas soldiers and fighters had engaged in a heavy battle, israeli tv stations reported. This means that operation "cast lead" into its second week. The number of dead and wounded in gaza is rising steadily, as is the number of targets destroyed in the densely populated strip, where it is virtually impossible to destroy hamas radical installations without hitting civilians. Unwra, the united nations relief and works agency for palestinian refugees, estimates that up to one-third of the victims are civilians. On the israeli side, however, the number of casualties has so far remained low. However, rockets continue to be fired from the gaza strip in the direction of israel, increasingly hitting major cities such as ashdod, ashkelon and the fourth-growth israeli city of beer sheva, fueling fears in this country that the metropolis of tel aviv could also be hit very soon – with a large number of casualties.

And so a majority of jewish israelis of voting age support a continuation of the airstrikes, which they hope will provide a lasting solution to the rocket problem. A ground offensive, however, is viewed critically: only one-fifth of the voters support an invasion of the gaza strip. However, as it seems at the moment, it is almost impossible to avoid it: the targets for further airstrikes are almost exhausted, and that without any significant decrease in the number of rockets hitting israel.


The ballast of the republic

Why calculated lack of salvation could be the salvation for berlin’s architecture

Egypt was the worst. Because heib is desirable and keen. Who wanted to go through the safety locks, total metal items made of pants and jacket bags, open his backpack and show the id card. This takes, and therefore a snake formed immediately before the barrier, which was getting long and long in the course of the day and almost reached to india in the afternoon. And there the crowd was similarly huge.

Esoteric doctors also have to pay attention to the state of mind of their patients

Dental medicine "spiritual self-healing" believes, must pay compensation

With doctors and patients, a little as with two cells in the proculation behaves: both do not deviate too much of certain standards, there are rarely difficulties. If only one or one of the standard corresponds, he or she may take damage. However, are in both problems, then a case can come out, as the higher regional court of munchen has negotiated this week.
