Car test: hyundai genesis G70 - an outsider in a fine netting

Jaguar, Cadillac and Volvo can tell you a thing or two about this – there are easier markets for foreign luxury brands than germany. But the strength of domestic premium vendors doesn’t stop newcomers from trying. This is also the case with the G70 from genesis.

After two decades of lexus cutting its teeth on audi, BMW and mercedes, and infiniti having just capitulated, genesis is on its way to europe. The distinguished sister of the Korean market leader hyundai is on the move and ventures into the den of luxury lions at the start of the new decade.

“A very good conversation”

Pope Benedict XVI offered a special greeting. during Tuesday's Vespers service to the delegation from the United Evangelical Lutheran Church of Germany, which included Gunther Beckstein. In an interview from Rome, the EKD synod vice president reports on his meeting with the pope and the current problems of ecumenism, also with regard to the Reformation anniversary in 2017.



We do not want to celebrate this 500th anniversary of the Reformation against the Catholic Church, but together with the Catholics. For it is important to us that ecumenism is one of the central tasks of Christians. That's why we followed in the footsteps of Luther via Milan to Rome and had a very, very good conversation with Pope Benedict XVI.. He has stressed that it is important not to look solely at the 500 years since the Reformation, but also to look at the 1500 years before that. And to confess to each other the guilt that both churches have brought upon themselves in the years after the Reformation. But above all, to see how we can bring Christianity closer to people in a secularized world in the future.

“Let the words now be followed by deeds”

After the suppression of protests in Burma, international prere on the military leadership is increasing – but so far only verbally, criticizes Ulrich Delius of the Society for Threatened Peoples. In an interview with this site, he calls on neighboring states "to now back up words with deeds". The West does not have the power to do that, Delius said. Meanwhile, the military junta in Burma is using a double tactic: gestures of reconciliation on the one hand, discrediting on the other.

Renewed protests The junta generals and their families donated money, rice, oil and toothpaste to monasteries in Rangoon, Asian media reported Monday, citing the Burmese state organ New Light of Myanmar. The monks would have accepted the donations.At the same time, according to the media, the military government is trying to discredit the clerics. It is alleged that pornography and weapons, such as pistols and slingshots, were found during raids on the monasteries during the violent crackdown on the peaceful uprising. Refusal to accept donations from the military was at the heart of the monks' protest actions. A boycott of donations has great symbolic significance.Meanwhile, in Yangon, some citizens expressed their contempt for the military junta again on Monday. Occasionally, soldiers are said to have been pelted with stones, Burmese media in exile report. Three days ago, leaders of the popular uprising, both monks and opposition politicians, who have gone into hiding and fled, called for the continuation of the protests through civil disobedience.

Federal Foreign Office: Situation only superficially calm The German Foreign Office in Berlin demanded Monday that all those detained be released. The situation in Burma is superficially calm, but arrests are still occurring during the nighttime curfew, spokesman Martin Jager said.In doing so, he said, it was apparently enough for people to have cameras or cell phones with them at demonstrations, or to wear only "a T-shirt of the wrong color". The International Red Cross called for access to detainees in prisons and labor camps in an epd interview Monday.The German Foreign Office emphasized that the Burmese government must know that its behavior will not remain without consequences. The UN Security Council should remain seized of the ie. The country's neighbors, in particular, should influence the military government. The junta should now enter into a "dialogue without preconditions" with the opposition, Jager demanded.

Guiding culture, family, animal welfare

A fighting term becomes programmatic. "Leitkultur"
appears in the draft of the CDU's basic program, which Secretary General Ronald Pofalla presented on Tuesday. Twice. The authors use the term to bundle descriptions of public spirit and integration, nationhood, patriotism, a "clear commitment" to history and culture, and the German language. Not everyone agrees.

"People's Party of the Center" Perhaps the commission agreed on this choice of words because the text elsewhere departs from the CDU's previous profile. Some things are really new. The differences between the Hamburg program "Freedom in Responsibility" of 1994 and the Ludwigshafen program of 1978 were much smaller in terms of profile."The Christian Democratic Union of Germany is the people's party of the middle. It addresses all people in all strata and groups of our country. Our policies are based on the Christian understanding of man and his responsibility before God…" With these words begins, after the preamble, the draft, which is available to the Catholic News Agency(KNA). Five lines further on comes – for the first time in such a text – the reference that the CDU is the "joint action of Christians and people of other faiths and non-believers" one who recognized the dignity and freedom of man and affirmed political beliefs. The Christian understanding of the human being provides the ethical basis for responsible politics. "Nevertheless, we know that from Christian faith no specific political program can be derived."From the church's point of view, concrete statements on upcoming ethical decisions are missing, criticizes Robin Mishra of the Rheinischer Merkur in an interview with this site.

For the first time animal protection This ethical basis – for example, in the protection of life – is not interpreted through concrete policies. As expected, terms such as abortion or stem cell research do not appear in the draft. But it is remarkable that unborn life is mentioned once – in the Christian conception of man – and – on the subject of late abortion – that "disabled life not yet born" is specifically mentioned once. In the 1994 program, which was shorter overall, unborn life was mentioned four times. The "protection of animals" appears explicitly for the first time in 2007, the protection of life as a concept no longer appears.In several places, the draft, which is to become the final text by the party conference in early December, refers to the fundamental ies of biomedicine and genetic engineering. "The freedom of research finds its limits where the inviolable dignity of man is touched or the creation is endangered," it says in the research policy section. 20 pages earlier, ethical limits, "unconscionable commercialization," the sanctity of human dignity are mentioned in current challenges. The scanty reminder of curing diseases, alleviating suffering will not satisfy the CDU's research friends.
