A Catastrophic Synodal Path   

Cache   
By Michael J. Matt, (Munich, January 18, Acies Ordinata)
As a German American whose grandparents were born not far from here, I welcome this opportunity to speak to the situation in the German Catholic Church which is beyond desperate and which has caused considerable concern among many American Catholics.
The German Bishops’ “synodal path” appears to be an effort to create a church according to the image and likeness of the German Bishops, who apparently believe they can define doctrine and establish their own national Church - a sort of elitist nationalism that flies in the face of the universal Catholic Church, with one faith, one sacramental system, and one discipline throughout the whole world.
Statutes drafted in cooperation with the Central Committee of German Catholics threaten to posit the ordination of women and the abolition of priestly celibacy as countermeasures to the clerical sexual abuse crisis. But, surely, the German Bishops realize that the ordination of women is a direct violation of God’…
          

Cardinal Müller: Francis Engages in "A Vain Effort" When Speaking to Scalfari   

Cache   
A politician, holding up the Rosary, can be trusted more than one who takes down Christ’s Cross, Cardinal Müller preached while holding up a Rosary in the Roman church Sant’Agnese in Agone on January 21.
This was a reference to Italy’s former deputy prime minister, Matteo Salvini, who often displayed a rosary during speeches, while, for instance, Munich Cardinal Marx opposed making it mandatory for crucifixes to be displayed in Bavarian public buildings.
According to Edward Pentin (NcRegister.com, January 21), Müller observed that Francis engages in a “a vain effort” by talking to the old Scalfari “when the atheist concluded from these dialogues that Francis “had denied the divinity of Christ.”
Müller reminds Francis that only by witnessing with Saint Peter, ‘Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God,’ a pope speaks as “pope of the entire Catholic Church.”

Session: Interceptor Ace: Daylight Air Defense Over Germany, 1943-44:: Uffz Werner Stoltz Combat Diary   

Cache   

by Hawks4Ever

Hi Greg,

This is my entry for the Interceptor Ace Online Tournament. When I started my pilot, I recorded every die roll for the 3 months, and as I did, I realised that a narrative could easily be built around the results of those die rolls. This game just lends itself to producing a story about the German fighter pilots in the summer of 1943.

I apologise that it is a bit long but I hope you will indulge me.


Uffz Werner Stoltz, III/JG26, flying Fw190's out of Wevelgem (starting with Reflexes and Parachute skills)

1 June 1943

Unteroffizier Werner Stoltz stared ahead at the wall behind the Kommandant. He was standing ramrod straight as the Kommandant flicked through a folder of papers.

“You’ve come straight from flight school?” “Jawohl, Herr Kommandant!”

“You graduated 17th out of how many students?” “37, Herr Kommandant!”

“Hmmm”, he replied. “How many hours do you have on 190’s?” “19 and a half, Herr Kommandant!”

“That’s more than most. How did you get the extra time?” “My friend Anton arranged it.”

“Redding? Ah, I see, he graduated first. The higher graduates usually get more time in the air”. He smiled and continued to look though the papers.

“Where did he get sent?” “The Eastern Front, Herr Kommandant!”

“Yes, they always get the better pilots. Luftwaffe High Command still thinks of the Western Front as a backwater. There are also rumours of a new offensive in the East. So, plenty of opportunities for new fighter pilots.” He smiled again.

The Kommandant stood up and looked at Werner. “Don’t be fooled, Stoltz. This is not a backwater. The Americans are brave and are learning fast. Their Viermots are tough and difficult to shoot down. Their defensive fire is tremendous. They still believe that they don’t need escorts but that will change. I’m going to give you Schmidt as your wingman. He’s an experienced pilot. Listen to him. Learn from him. He will keep you alive. We have a spare A-4 for you. Make sure you look after it. Inspect it closely. Look at every rivet and bolt and panel. Make it your girlfriend, give it a name, and think of nothing else. We’ll be back in action soon. Dismissed!”


3 June 1943

Two days later, Werner was sitting in the cockpit of his plane. The sun was shining and it was warm. Despite being at immediate readiness, he was thinking of Klara and when they last went on a picnic in a park in Berlin. It all seemed so long ago.

Suddenly his earphones crackled. “Alarm! Alarm! Raid detected. Somewhere in central France! Immediate Readiness fighters take off and rendezvous at Radio Beacon Emil. Altitude 6500 metres.”

Raid 1 – Le Mans – Weather Good

Werner stood in a line waiting to talk to the Gruppe Intelligence Officer (IO). Schmidt was standing with him. The IO looked up and said “Next!” Werner and Schmidt sat in the chairs next to the IO’s desk.

“What happened? You know, I had five Reichmarks on you being shot down.” He smiled.

“Sir, I’d like to put in a claim for two B17’s destroyed.” The IO stared at Werner and then looked at Schmidt who nodded his head. The IO returned to Werner. “Tell me your story.”

“The ground controllers put us in a position for an up sun attack. My first shots hit a B17 which already had some flak damage. The cannon shells hit the port wing and engines. At first there was no return fire. I came around again and hit the port wing and engines again. I had to press my pass closer and fired again. The port wing collapsed and the B17 went down. My 190 was only hit on the wing. I circled around again for another pass and selected another B17 which was also flak damaged. I hit the port wing and continued in. I fired again and the B17 exploded. This time the return fire was much more intense. I was hit across my airframe and my weapons stopped working. Schmidt then said we should head home.”

The IO finished scribbling down his notes of the encounter. “Good. How is your aircraft? Much damage?” Werner looked at the floor. “The ground crew say it’s a write-off. I’ll need a new one.”

“You’ll have to answer to the Kommandant about that. It’s just as well we have plenty of spare A-4’s. Go and have a drink and get some rest. Make sure you’re on parade tomorrow morning. The Kommandant will want to present your Iron Crosses.”

Results Raid 1 - 2 B17 kills - EK2, EK1 - 2 Prestige Points - Fw190 written off


6 June 1943

Werner had been circling the Radio Beacon for 10 minutes now. The ground controllers were confused about the direction of the raid, and Werner’s concentration was slipping. Finally a voice came across his headset. “The target is Hamburg, repeat, Hamburg. Proceed to Hamburg where you will pick up the Americans at 6000 metres.”

Raid 2 – Hamburg – Weather Good

The IO shouted at Werner. “Where the hell have you been?”

“I was shot down near Hamburg. Didn’t Schmidt tell you?”

“Yes – but he wasn’t sure you survived. He said you were on fire. Tell me what happened.”

“When we finally picked up the raid, I got into position and selected a B17. My first burst hit across his port wing, controls and engines. I pressed in and hit him again. I circled around for another pass and hit his port wing again. Then all of a sudden I was on fire. I bailed out alright and landed near a road. I hitched a lift back to base. I didn’t see what happened to the B17 but it was in a bad way.”

The IO finished writing. “It’s a close call – no doubt. I’m sorry we can’t confirm that B17. You didn’t see what happened to it and Schmidt didn’t see it as he was looking for you. It’s just as well you did some practice parachute jumps. We’ll stand you down for a couple of days to allow you to recover. Make sure you get a good rest. No late nights! And get another aircraft from dispersal.”

Results Raid 2 - 1 B17 unconfirmed - Fw190 Shot Down – pilot safe – misses next sortie


13 June 1943

Werner stared in awe at the armada below him to his left. The number of Viermots that the Americans were able to send was growing daily. The Gruppe leader chose which pulk to attack and Werner dived towards the B17’s.

Raid 3 – Le Mans – Weather Good

The IO stared at Werner. “Alright, can you tell me this story again because I don’t believe it.”

“I lined up a B17 and hit one of its engines. I closed in and got a good group of hits on his port wing. Several bullets went through my airframe. I came around again and then my MG151’s jammed. I only had the MG17’s left. I fired but missed. Getting closer, I fired again and hit his port engines. Another bullet hit my engine. I was determined to get him and circled again. I hit his port engines – again – and then he hit my engine - again. There was lots of smoke and a bit of oil on my windscreen. I continued to hit him with the MG’s and his port wing broke off. I took another hit to the engine and the landing gear, and headed home. You can check what’s left of my aircraft.”

“You shot down a B17 with just your MG’s?” “Yes.” “And you’ve written off another plane?” “Yes.”

“That makes three. At this rate you’ll be an Ace for the Americans before you’re an Ace for Germany!”

Results Raid 3 - 1 B17 kill (Total: 3) - Fw190 written off


17 June 1943

Werner was lazing in a chair beside the Immediate Readiness hut. It was far more comfortable than sitting in the cockpit. He was reading a letter telling him that the B17 he shot down four days before was confirmed. He smiled to himself. The Readiness Officer yelled out the window of the hut. “Wake up everybody and get moving. There’s a raid coming in. Looks like Hamburg again.”

Raid 4 – Hamburg – Weather Good

The IO smiled and looked up from his notes. He looked at Schmidt who nodded and then looked at Werner. “Just think – I thought you were going to be shot down on your first sortie. And now you’re an Ace! An Ace in four sorties! Unbelievable!”

Werner replied “I just keep aiming at the port wing trying to hit the fuel tanks. It seems to work. The first B17 hit me a couple of times but then it just flipped over and went down. The second one was tougher but eventually the 20mm shells did the job on the port wing. My 190 is a sieve again however.”

The IO stood up and Werner looked around. The Kommandant was smiling behind him. “I hear you’ve made Ace. Congratulations. We’ll have some drinks tonight.” The smile left his face. “But - stop destroying my planes. You’ve written off another 190. The Supply Officer is on my back. Don’t push so hard.” He paused. “Anyway, as a reward, I’m going to let you have an A-4/R6 with Werfers. It should make it a bit easier for you.”

Results Raid 4 - 2 B17 kills (Total: 5) - Ace - 1 Prestige Point - Fw190 written off - Upgrade to Fw190A-4/R6 - Learn new skill – Cuban 8 Manoeuvre (AM1)


20 June 1943

Werner could always tell when a letter was from Anton by his writing style. He ripped the envelope open but just as he started to read it, the alarm sounded. Mein Gott! It was Hamburg again!

Raid 5 – Hamburg – Weather Good

The IO couldn’t stop laughing. “You’ve done it! You’ve finally done it. You’ve brought back an aircraft which can be used again! Finally!”

Werner smiled and laughed as well. He didn’t want to tell the IO that he had been a bit fool hardy and had taken his FW into close range. But it had been a calculated risk. His reflexes were razor sharp and he had hit the fuel tanks to start a fire. He would also have to talk to Schmidt about aiming the Werfers. He wasn’t sure they were worth the effort.

As he left, the IO reminded him that spare parts were in short supply and not to use his friendship with the ground crews to get his plane repaired faster.

Results Raid 5 - 1 B17 kill (Total: 6) - Fw190 – 4 hits – no scrounge - misses next sortie


28 June 1943

The letter from Anton had slightly depressed Werner. His friend was doing it tough. The accommodation and food was very basic, and they were flying every day with no rest. Anton did have 11 kills which was nearly twice that of Werner. But hadn’t Schmidt said that a kill on the Western Front was worth five on the Eastern Front? The alarm bells sounded and Werner began running to his newly repaired Fw190.

Raid 6 – Antwerp – Weather Good

It had been a tough day for the Gruppe. Five pilots were missing but two had been accounted for. The IO got off the phone. “That was Vogel. He’s alright, so only two missing now. How did you go?”

Werner looked up. “Schmidt told me to aim for the bomb bays when the raid was inbound. I did this and the results were spectacular. Both of the B17’s I hit just disappeared. The rockets seemed to work this time as well.”

The IO sat waiting for Werner to confirm what he already knew. “And I’ve written off another plane.”

The IO leaned back and smiled. “Well, someone thinks you’re doing a good job. You’ve been promoted to Unterfeldwebel. Congratulations. That should help you when dealing with the ground crew.”

Results Raid 6 - 2 B17 kills (Total: 8) - Fw190 written off - Promoted (Scrounge ability)


2 July 1943

All the Gruppe pilots were sitting in the briefing room listening to the Kommandant. Much of what he had to say was not worth remembering but one item did get their attention. Enemy fighters had recently been seen as far as Kassel and pilots were warned to remain vigilant when attacking the Viermots. As the pilots exited the room, all were deep in thought about this turn of events.

Raid 7 – Kiel – Weather Good

Werner woke up with a start. He had a splitting headache and was having trouble focussing. He was in the base hospital and had a lot of bandaging around his head. A nurse walked over to him. “You’re awake. Good. You’re very lucky. If that bullet had been one centimetre lower, you’d be in the other room.” She pointed to the sign indicating the morgue.

The Kommandant walked into the ward and over to his bed. “How are you? They’re treating you well?” “Yes Herr Kommandant.”

“Good. I see you knocked down another Viermot today. What’s that now? Nine?” “Yes.”

“And you’ve written off another 190. Six?” “Yes, but one was shot down.” “The Kommandant smiled.

“A batch of the new A-6’s has arrived. I’m going to give you one – but I want you to not push in so hard. I’ve seen this before. It doesn’t end well. Alright?” Werner nodded.

“The doctor says you’ll be in here for a week. When you get out, your new 190 will be ready. I’ve got a Wound Badge for you as well. Use the rest wisely – you won’t be getting much in the future.”

Results Raid 7 - 1 B17 kill (Total: 9) - Wound Badge - 1 Prestige Point - Fw190 written off - Upgrade to Fw190A-6 - misses next two sorties due to serious wound


12 July 1943

Werner was lying under his new plane and reading a letter from Anton. The long awaited offensive in the East had started. It seemed to be concentrating on a town called Kursk. Anton was well but the tone of the letter indicated that he was very tired. His number of kills was 18 and he’d have a Fried Egg soon. Werner read on enviously. He looked across the airfield and saw the Readiness Officer running towards him. He didn’t need to guess what he was going to say.

Raid 8 – Oschersleben – Weather Good

The Kommandant was shouting into the phone to the Supply Officer. “I don’t care how many planes he’s lost. He’s just claimed his tenth kill and he wants a new A-6/R1! Get him one as soon as possible. Yes. Yes – I’ll sign for it.” He hung up the phone and looked at Werner. “All arranged.”

He paused for a moment. “You needed two passes to destroy the B17?” Werner nodded back to the Kommandant. “Headaches still affecting your aim?” Werner nodded again. “The doctor says they should slowly go away. You’re a double Ace now - 10 kills! Get my adjutant to arrange a party. I want to present the Honour Goblet to you personally. However, no champagne for you.” He smiled as Werner saluted him.

Results Raid 8 - 1 B17 kill (Total: 10) - Ehrenpokal - 1 Prestige Point - Fw190 – 3 hits - Upgrade to Fw190A-6/R1 - Learn new skill – Chandelle manoeuvre (AM2)


16 July 1943

The scramble to get into the air had been chaotic. Werner was still tightening his harness straps as he climbed towards the rendezvous point near Kassel. He looked behind to see where Schmidt was. Suddenly, a voice came across his radio headset. “Attention. Attention. Fighters are escorting the bombers. Repeat. Enemy fighters are in the combat area!”

Raid 9 – Kassel – Weather Good

The IO looked up at Werner and Schmidt. “Ah, there you are. You’re the last back. When I heard that the bombers had fighter escorts I was worried. But it looks like the Gruppe hasn’t suffer any casualties, though Miller crash landed south of Bremen. He’s alright. How did you go?”

“I was able to get onto a B17 and shot up the airframe. I luckily hit the bomb bay and the Viermot exploded. However, return fire damaged my oxygen supply. I headed for the ground and was bounced by a P47. I used a Chandelle manoeuvre (thanks to Schmidt!) to avoid his fire and got into a good firing position. I had to let him go because of my oxygen situation. We’d moved a fair way passed Kassel and that’s why we’re late.”

The IO finished writing. “How’s your aircraft?” “A couple of hits but nothing serious.”

The IO nodded “Good. The American fighters are a worry. They’re learning their lessons and I think all their raids will soon be escorted.”

Results Raid 9 - 1 B17 kill (Total: 11) - Fw190 – 2 hits


21 July 1943

The attack by the Spitfires had come as a complete surprise to the Gruppe. Werner could see at least two FW’s going down smoking. He banked to the left and saw a Spitfire heading towards him.

The wings of the Spitfire blinked but the tracers flew wide as Werner used a Chandelle and got behind him. Werner pressed his gun button and he saw strikes across the Spitfire’s control panels and airframe. Staying behind him, Werner fired again and a thin stream of fuel started to trail behind the RAF fighter. Once again the 190’s weapons shuddered, this time with decisive results. The Spitfire flipped over and the pilot fell out. A parachute blossomed. Werner signalled to Schmidt – it was his first fighter kill.

Werner’s radio crackled into life. “Attention. Proceed to Radio Beacon Gustav to pick up the bomber stream. Altitude 5500 metres.”

Raid 10 – Oschersleben – Weather Good

The IO wasn’t really listening. Four pilots from the Gruppe had been shot down and all had been killed in action. While the ambush by the Spitfires had been devastating, it hadn’t stopped the Gruppe from attacking the bombers and Werner had been able to shoot down another B17. When Werner and Schmidt left the IO, he was staring at the wall, slowly smoking a cigarette.

Results Raid 10 - 1 B17 kill and 1 Spitfire kill (Total: 13) - Fw190 – 1 hit


25 July 1943

The letter from Klara had lifted Werner’s spirits. She was well and no major air raids had hit Berlin recently. She was studying to become a nurse and hoped to look after injured aircrew at Luftwaffe airbases. Werner finished reading the letter and started to write a reply. If he had time he might write a letter to Anton also. However, he didn’t get the time. In the distance, he heard the alarm bells begin to ring.

Raid 11 – Hannover – Weather Good

Werner and Schmidt stood in line waiting for the IO. He’d had a frustrating day. He’d been able to knock down a B17 but return fire had been accurate and had once again hit his oxygen system. He had been forced to dive towards the ground and return home early. The rest of the Gruppe had done well and there was a party that night but Werner was still feeling his frustration and left early to write letters to Klara and Anton.

Results Raid 11 - 1 B17 kill (Totals: 14) - Fw190 – 2 hits


29 July 1943

The Gruppe scramble had been expertly performed and the Gruppe leader had congratulated all pilots. All aircraft were now heading towards Oschersleben again. It looked like the Americans were really trying to wipe out the Fw190 factory there. Suddenly, Werner noticed specks moving in the distance. They couldn’t have reached the bombers yet but it quickly became apparent that these aircraft were much smaller than B17’s.

Raid 12 – Oschersleben – Weather Good

The P47 fired but Werner pulled a Chandelle and the bullets sailed past his starboard wing. He turned inside the P47 and it floated into his sights. He pressed the button. The cannon shells had a devastating effect and part of the tail unit broke away. The American pilot bailed out and his parachute deployed properly. Werner looked around but he could only see Schmidt, still faithfully behind him. He checked his fuel gauge and doing some mental calculations, realised he had to head home. While Werner had shot down one of the P47’s, they had successfully stopped the Gruppe from intercepting the bombers.

Results Raid 12 - 1 P47 kill (Total: 15) - Fw190 undamaged


2 August 1943

Werner was lying on his bed thinking about a conversation him and some other pilots had recently had with the Kommandant. He had said that Luftwaffe High Command expected all American raids to be escorted from now on. He warned them to be careful.

Raid 13 – Villacoublay – Weather Good

Werner lined up the B17 and fired his weapons. The shells exploded across the port wing and engines. He fired again and the B17 reared up and then went into a dive. The return fire was fierce and he felt his plane being hit. He looked around for the escort and suddenly a P47 was upon him. He turned and used a new manoeuvre Schmidt had taught him – an Immelmann. However, the P47 countered with a Chandelle and gained the advantage. Werner also used a Chandelle but the P47 kept moving inside him. This American was good. The P47 fired and Werner felt his aircraft shudder under the impact of the bullets. The P47 kept turning and was finally on Werner’s tail. He continued to weave and just as the American fired, Werner did a half loop. The bullets hit all over the 190 but he was now on the P47’s tail. He pressed the button and nothing happened – all his weapons had been damaged and would not work. Werner dived away and headed for home. His aircraft was barely flyable and he realised that he had been very, very lucky.

Results Raid 13 - 1 B17 kill (Total: 16) - Fw190 written off (10 hits!)

6 August 1943

Werner was catching up on some rather boring paperwork. He wasn’t at Readiness and was startled when one of the other pilots burst into his room telling him to get to his aircraft. He grabbed his flying gloves and boots and sprinted towards his plane which was being readied by the ground crew.

Raid 14 – Amiens Airfield – Weather Good

Once again the Gruppe had encountered a squadron of P47’s conducting a sweep ahead of the bombers. The sky swirled with aircraft as each tried to get on the others tail. Werner was tangling with a P47 that was proving elusive. Eventually, using his reflexes and a Chandelle, he was able to get an effective burst in and the P47 went down smoking. The sky cleared and the remaining pilots with undamaged aircraft, formed up and continued towards the bombers. Shortly, the bomber stream came into sight. They had bombed and were heading back to England. Werner selected a B17 that had been badly hit by flak. Despite his MG17’s jamming, he was able to obtain some good hits on the bomber and it started to fall away. He felt his plane shudder as some 50 calibre bullets hit it, but all seemed fine.

Suddenly, tracers whipped past his cockpit. Werner did an Immelmann but missed the attacking P47 with his burst of fire. The American got behind him and hit the 190 hard. Werner’s controls no longer responded and he bailed out. The chute opened and then it was very peaceful and quiet as he floated to the ground.

Results Raid 14 - 1 B17 kill and 1 P47 kill (Total: 18) - Fw190 Shot Down – pilot safe – misses next sortie


14 August 1943

It didn’t take Werner long to return to Wevelgem but the IO felt he needed a rest and he missed the next operation. During his break, he caught up with his letter writing to his family, Klara and Anton. He hadn’t heard from Anton for a while. With the encouragement of the Kommandant, he also put in a request to be considered for officer school but he wasn’t confident he would be accepted. As he posted his letters, he saw other pilots running towards their planes.

Raid 15 – Le Bourget – Weather Good

Werner jumped out of the truck and thanked the driver. He walked over to the briefing room and saw the IO. “You’re making a habit of this you know. Two bail outs in two missions.” The IO took out his note book and began to write. The Gruppe had easily intercepted the bombers and another B17 had fallen to Werner’s guns. However his FW had taken a hit to its control panels and as Werner tried to get away, he was set upon by a P47. Even though he damaged the P47, no matter what manoeuvre Werner tried, the American eventually moved onto his tail and hit the controls again. With his aircraft not responding, Werner had no option but to bail out which he did safely.

The IO finished writing. “I think you’re still very tired. I’m sending you to the doctor for a check-up. Let me know what he says.” Werner thanked him and headed for the hospital.

Results Raid 15 - 1 B17 kill (Total: 19) and 1 P47 damaged - Fw190 Shot Down – pilot safe – misses next sortie


21 August 1943

The doctor had given Werner a week off after he told him he was still getting the occasional headache. He tried contacting Anton but this had proved impossible. It sounded like the Russians had defeated the Kursk offensive and were making gains. The news from Sicily was also not very good. As he sat in his cockpit at Readiness, Werner began to wonder what the future would hold for him and Klara. His ground crew started shouting at him to get ready to start his engine. There was a raid coming in.

Raid 16 – Amiens Airfield – Weather Good

The nurse was bandaging his left arm when the Kommandant walked into the hospital ward. “I heard you were in here. What happened?”

“I had set a Viermot on fire when a bullet came through the perspex and hit me in the arm. It didn’t penetrate but I couldn’t use my arm. It just felt numb. Very lucky I think.”

“Yes, you were. 20 kills. Congratulations, I have a Fried Egg for you. When you’re feeling up to it, I’ll present it on parade. Until your arm is better, you’re off operations again.”

28 August 1943

Werner was finally back on operations. The doctor had given him the all clear. A letter was waiting for him in his pigeon hole. Werner didn’t recognise the writing on the envelope. He opened it and began to read. It was from Anton’s Staffelkapitan in Russia. Anton was missing in action. No one was sure what had happened to him but he would be awarded a German Cross in Gold for 23 kills. Werner stopped reading and walked to a window. He looked across the airfield for a long time, thinking how he could do absolutely nothing to help his friend.

Raid 17 – Regensburg – Weather Good

The raid had been a very long interception for the Gruppe and in the end, Werner had not seen the bombers. They had been intercepted themselves by P47’s. Werner had been lucky enough to shoot one down and it was then a long flight back to base. He barely had any fuel left when he landed. When he finished debriefing, an orderly handed him a letter. He had been accepted into officer school and was to report to Berlin within the next week. He turned and saluted the IO and Kommandant who was standing next to him. Both returned his salute. He then walked towards his room to start packing his belongings.

Results Raid 17 - 1 B17 kill (Total: 21) - Fw190 undamaged

Participants form 10 nations trained in ICT for Agriculture   

Cache   
21.01.2020

From 03 – 12 December 2019, AFC conducted a training on behalf of GIZ at GIZ’s International Conference and Training Centre in Feldafing, close to Munich, on the topic of ICT in Agriculture.


The seminar on ICT provided local actors from 10 different countries with additional skills and knowledge regarding important agricultural innovations. Information and communication technologies play an important role in helping farmers make effective decisions, and are therefore effective information delivery tools when used in agriculture. What kind of seeds to grow? When and where? How and where to store the harvest, and at what price to sell the crops? – these decisions have previously been based on farmers’ past experiences. Due to irregular weather patterns caused by climate change, farmers face new difficulties in decision-making. With real-time data collected on various decision factors such as weather, soil quality or crop maturity, farmers can make timely and better decisions.


Furthermore, ICT can improve many aspects in rural areas providing people with better networking opportunities and give an access to outside expertise. ICT enables rural population to enter new markets and gain access to digital services like crop failure insurance, which makes their agricultural activities more secure and productive. Given the recent dynamic advances in ICT for agriculture and BMZ’s interest in the topic of digitalisation and development, GIZ organised this seminar to inform about and discuss the potential of the new technologies for value chain development.


The seminar was developed within the framework of the programme “Green Innovation Centres for the Agriculture and Food Sector”, as part of the special initiative ONE WORLD – No Hunger, which is implemented in 15 partner countries to promote innovations that increase farmer incomes, boost employment, and improve local food supplies. Capacity development is a key element of the programme.

Why Iran Should Ditch the Hopeless Nuclear Deal   

Cache   

Iran Deal reached in Vienna dc141

Not since the 1930s has European appeasement been seen to be so cowardly, so cynical and ultimately so recklessly leading to greater escalation and war.

In the 1930s, British and French appeasement of Nazi fascism led to World War II. Nearly a century later, the same unscrupulous fawning over American imperialism towards Iran is similarly creating the conditions that fuel lawlessness and aggression.

The joint statement issued this week by the European troika of Britain, France and Germany regarding the international nuclear accord with Iran was a masterclass in deception and cynicism.

The so-called E3 said they were triggering a dispute mechanism because, they alleged, Iran was in violation of the international accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“We have therefore been left with no choice, given Iran’s actions, but to register today our concerns that Iran is not meeting its commitments under the JCPOA and to refer this matter to the Joint Commission under the Dispute Resolution Mechanism, as set out in paragraph 36 of the JCPOA,” read the European joint statement.

It concludes: “We do this in good faith with the overarching objective of preserving the JCPOA and in the sincere hope of finding a way forward to resolve the impasse through constructive diplomatic dialogue, while preserving the agreement and remaining within its framework. In doing so, our three countries are not joining a campaign to implement maximum pressure against Iran. Our hope is to bring Iran back into full compliance with its commitments under the JCPOA.”

Iran is being put in a no-win situation because of false claims. The dispute cannot be resolved, and so over the coming weeks the European are moving to re-impose UN and EU sanctions on Iran. The JCPOA is thus finished.

As Russia’s foreign ministry pointed out, the European “dangerous” move to censure Iran is not justified, and it will lead to further escalation in an already dangerous stand-off between the US and Iran.

What the Europeans are doing is falsely blaming Iran for violating the JCPOA by Tehran’s incremental suspension of commitments over the past seven months. Iran was forced into doing that because it was the Trump administration that first violated the international treaty by unilaterally rescinding it in May 2018, and subsequently reimposing crippling economic sanctions on Iran.

Iran warned the Europeans in May 2019 that they must take steps to uphold the accord and implement trade mechanisms to avoid US sanctions. The Europeans failed miserably to deliver on their commitments to the JCPOA and sheepishly backed away from doing business with Iran in the face of US threats of secondary sanctions.

The pious joint statement this week from the EU troika is a mendacious cover-up of their own weakness and failure to stand up to American bullying.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in a separate statement: “Our goal is clear: we want to preserve the accord and come to a diplomatic solution within the agreement.”

British counterpart Dominic Raab told Britain’s parliament that “the Iranian regime has a choice.”

“The regime can take the steps to de-escalate tensions and adhere to the basic rules of international law. Or sink deeper and deeper into political and economic isolation,” he said. “We urge Iran to work with us to save the deal,” said Raab from the pseudo moral high-ground.

The Europeans are turning reality on its head. Condemning Iran for violating the deal is the cowardly wheeze of “blaming the victim” while whitewashing the very real and much greater violations by the US and the Europeans themselves.

Telling Iran that it must “take steps to de-escalate” is an absurd distortion of the relentless build up of military force by the US in the Middle East aimed at Iran. The Europeans make the risible claim that they are not joining the US “maximum pressure” campaign when that is exactly what they are doing. It’s as insulting to common intelligence as Britain’s Neville Chamberlain proclaiming “peace in our time” after sucking up to Hitler at Munich in 1938.

The European sniveling capitulation to Trump’s warmongering towards Iran has been underway over the past three years. The American president greeted the latest act of European vassalage with stirring words of lies and more threats.

“The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime: your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tolerated any longer,” Trump said, according to a statement released by the State Department.

Iran needs to face up to the truth. The European governments are not honest brokers nor are they genuine partners. They cannot be trusted, as Ayatollah Khamenei said this week.

Iran is grieving the loss of national hero Maj. General Soleimani who was murdered on the orders of Trump. The country is grieving over the air disaster of a civilian plane being shot down by Iranian defense forces amid heightened tensions of an American-led war. Yet the Europeans say nothing of condemnation against the aggressor in Washington. Indeed, they are piling on the isolation and smearing of Iran, repeating baseless US accusation of it having secret nuclear ambitions.

This European appeasement is only lending further false justification for American aggression towards Iran. It is fueling the danger of war despite its cynical claims of wanting a “diplomatic solution” and adhering to international law.

Iranian-American scholar Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich has called this moment a “wake-up call” for Iran.

In an interview for Press TV, she said: “The Europeans have shown repeatedly through their actions they are not a European power. They are a European marketplace. And the United States has leverage in this marketplace and even dictates its rules.”

That was an implicit reference to the reported threats by the Trump administration to hit the EU with steep tariffs on auto exports if it did not trigger the dispute mechanism with Iran this week.

Sepahpour-Ulrich also questions the basic premise of the 2015 nuclear accord which was signed by the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China after years of tortuous negotiations. She says that for the Western states, the JCPOA “was never about establishing normal relations with Iran. It was about subduing Iran, undermining it and taking away its power, basically.”

As such, it is perhaps a good thing that the charade of the nuclear accord is finally finished, due to the latest bad faith from the incorrigible European lackeys in hock to US imperialist bullying.

Being entangled in the charade was always a drain on Iranian power and, paradoxically, a source of escalation, as the disturbing current dynamic is proving.

The false choice being presented by the EU to Iran of “returning to compliance” should be repudiated. Iran should henceforth direct its economic interests wholeheartedly towards co-development with Russia, China and the Eurasian realm. Any further wrangling with the Western charlatans is only inviting war.

Eugen Bleuler's Views on the Genetics of Schizophrenia in 1917.

Schizophr Bull. 2020 Jan 21;:

Authors: Kendler KS

Abstract
In 1917, Eugen Bleuler published an article (Mendelismus bei Psychosen, speziell bei der Schizophrenie [Mendelism in the Psychoses, especially Schizophrenia]) in response to the recently published first systematic family study of dementia praecox (DP) by Ernst Rüdin, then working under Kraepelin in Munich. Although briefly commented upon by David Rosenthal in 1978, this article has never been thoroughly reviewed or translated. Of the many themes addressed, four are especially noteworthy. First, Bleuler argues that understanding the transmission patterns of schizophrenia in families requires definitive knowledge about the boundaries of the phenotype which he argues are unknown. Rüdin's choice-Kraepelin's concept of DP-is, he asserts, too narrow. Clarifying the genetics of schizophrenia is inextricably bound up with the problem of defining the phenotype. Second, Bleuler argues for the importance of "erbschizose" (literally "inherited schizoidia") wondering whether his "4 As" or other "brain-anatomical, chemical, [or] neurological characteristics" might underlie the genetic transmission of schizophrenia. Third, Bleuler was deeply interested in the nature of the onset of schizophrenia, suggesting that environmental adversity could provoke "latent illness to become manifest." It was important, he argued, to identify such risk factors and incorporate them into genetic models. Fourth, although not optimistic that current knowledge would permit a resolution of the transmission model for schizophrenia, he finds single-locus models implausible and at several points wonders whether polygenic models might better apply. A complete translation of the article is provided.

Apple trasladará sus oficinas de Múnich a unas nuevas instalaciones

Apple quiere aumentar su presencia en Alemania, y para ello habría encontrado una nueva ubicación desde la que gestionar sus operaciones en el país germano. El edificio "Karl", que está siendo construido en Karlstraße, y que se espera que esté completado para 2021, tendrá suficiente espacio para albergar a 1.500 empleados.

Según el medio Süddeutsche Zeitung, Apple lo habría alquilado por completo, según han confirmado varios expertos en el mercado de bienes raíces comerciales en Múnich. No obstante, los de Cupertino no han proporcionado ninguna confirmación oficial.

Las actuales instalaciones darían cabida a 300 empleados

Edificio Karl Edificio Karl - simulación de Chipperfield Architects

Aunque un portavoz de Apple ha aclarado que no se contestarán a preguntas relacionadas con las oficinas de Apple en Múnich ni con el número de empleados, se cree que el actual centro de diseño de los californianos en esta zona, que está ubicado cerca de la estación de tren principal de la ciudad, da cabida a unos 300 ingenieros de 40 países.

El edificio Karl dispone de 30.000 metros cuadrados, todos ellos alquilados a una única persona o entidad, por lo que el número de trabajadores podría aumentar hasta los 1.500. Además, Tim Cook visitó Múnich hace unos meses con motivo de la celebración del Oktoberfest, donde se reunió con algunas personalidades y aprovechó para ir por primera vez las oficinas de la compañía.

Clemens Baumgärtner, oficial de economía (CSU) que habló con Cook, está "encantado de que Apple esté expandiéndose en Múnich. Esto creará puestos de trabajo altamente cualificados en nuestra ciudad. Usé el Oktoberfest para ponerme en contacto con los líderes de negocios y hablarles sobre las ventajas de Múnich como ciudad para la tecnología y la ciencia. Si esto resultó en una respuesta positiva de Cook, me alegra."

Parece ser que Apple no ha sido la única que ha sucumbido a los encantos de Múnich. Google ya anunció en octubre que incrementaría su presencia en la ciudad para pasar de 1.000 empleados a 1.500. Para esto también habría comprado un nuevo espacio en el que planearía erigir 41.000 metros cuadrados de oficinas.

AM alpha and a German pension fund make a joint investment in Glasgow   

Cache   
Jan 22, 2020

• Successful acquisition of office property in the Central Business District
• Focus remains on European value-add investments

Munich, January 16, 2020 --( ASIA TODAY )-- The Munich-based family office AM alpha, which specializes in joint real estate investments with private and institutional investors, announces the acquisition of a Glasgow office property that was effected in the middle of last year.

Constructed in a sophisticated architectural style in 2004, the nine-story office building is situated in a prime location and offers approx. 7,360 m² of rental space as well as 31 parking spaces. At present, the building is rented out to the international insurance group Chubb Services and the design and engineering services provider Atkins.

Located in the International Financial Services District (IFSD), a submarket of the CBD, the property has excellent transport connections. Via the M8 motorway, which runs from Glasgow to Edinburgh, the airport can be reached in approx. 15 minutes. The central train station is less than 10 minutes on foot. Thanks to its exposed location on the river Clyde, the property can also be reached via the bicycle path running along the riverbank.

In regards to the investment strategy, Martin Lemke, Managing Director of AM alpha, explains: “The acquisition in Glasgow underlines our macroeconomic factor-based investment approach which is not swayed by temporary occurrences. Glasgow is undergoing a highly positive development, not least thanks to various strategic measures taken by the city council. Above-average corporate growth and a significant decline in unemployment are evidence of this. In contrast to other big cities in the United Kingdom, small and medium-sized companies are also growing and the upswing translates into lively demand for office space in all size ranges. This market environment is particularly attractive when it can be combined with added value opportunities through active asset management, which is the case here.” Aside from Europe, AM alpha also concentrates on value-based investments in the Asia-Pacific region.

Elder Technologies raises further GBP8.2m

Elder Technologies raises further GBP8.2m

Elder Ltd has raised another GBP8.2 million funding round as its technology-enabled live-in care service gains nationwide popularity, bringing the total raised to GBP16.5 million. 

The round was led by Acton Capital, a leading growth venture capital investor from Munich, Germany and participated by existing investors.

Elder is one of the UK's fastest-growing startups and has delivered more than 350,000 days of care in more than 300 towns and cities across the UK since 2016 – with the Outer Hebrides being the only remaining area where care is yet to be delivered.

By allowing the customer to stay in their own home and providing a bespoke, personalised care match, Elder is proving to be the first genuine solution to the growing social care crisis.

 
Elder Co-Founder and CEO, Peter Dowds, who previously saw success with the home services marketplace, Mopp, says: ‘This is an exciting time for Elder customers and families everywhere who are looking for vital support and care. This new funding will be used to further improve our live-in care experience so even more people up and down the UK can make sure their loved ones get to remain happy, independent and supported in their own home rather than being forced out of it and into a care home.

‘It is great to have the continued backing of MMC Ventures and to welcome Acton Capital on board. Their shared experience will be invaluable as we continue on our journey. I look forward to working with them.’

Sebastian Wossagk, Managing Partner at Acton Capital, says: ‘With life expectancy increasing fast, we need to rethink how to deliver care and to prevent a looming ageing crisis. A vast majority of an ageing population would prefer not to move to a nursing home, if they become incapable of caring for themselves. As home care is becoming more of a need than an option for many, we are convinced that Elder has the potential to really enhance their lives.

‘Elderly care is a significant part of the future of healthcare, but it’s a segment with a high degree of sensitivity. The business model and especially Elder’s team convinced us, as investors, to support the company to take on the responsible task of enhancing the overall quality of care.’
 
With the number of over-85s in the UK set to nearly double to 3 million by 2043, there’s a huge looming capacity black hole, as the indebted and fragmented residential care sector fails to meet rising demand. 

Meanwhile, Elder is delivering capacity rapidly and at scale. This latest investment from Acton Capital and MMC Ventures is set to speed this further, with a host of planned developments in technology driving efficiency in every aspect of care delivery – from better communication between carer and family to in-home monitoring. 
 
Bruce McFarlane, from long-term investors, MMC, says: ‘The UK urgently needs solutions to the demands of an ageing population that expects high-quality late-life care but the cost of building and operating traditional care homes to the level required means that demand cannot be met by existing systems.

‘Elder provides a solution. By allowing customers to stay in their own homes and be matched with carers who provide the companionship they desire, Elder is delivering a more efficient, cost-effective and better experience for those needing care and their concerned families.

‘The team at Elder have consistently executed on their vision to provide better, tech-enabled social care and we’re excited to continue supporting the team at Elder in its next stage of growth.’

Photos of the Week - Germany Edition
Photos of the Week - Germany Edition
abduzeedoJan 20, 2020

A couple of weeks ago I shared some photos I took last year. The main goal was, one, to share high resolution images, and two, to create an incentive for me to take more photos. With those noble causes in mind I had the chance to travel to Europe last week for a short business trip. In between meetings I was able to sneak out and capture some photos. So for this post I would love to show you a bit more of my interpretation of the cities of Munich in Germany and Salzburg, Austria.

The photos were taken with the Sony A7 III with the cheap (not so great) Sony FE 50mm F1.8 as well as with the amazing Sony FE 85mm F1.8. I will talk a bit more about these lenses in a future post.
