Bamberg sociology professor: “education and training are more worthwhile than ever”

Bamberg sociology professor:

At 28. Experts discuss the question of "master's or master's" at the university of bamberg in june? Educational paths in times of academic glut and shortage of skilled workers" (5 p.M., auditorium in the dominikanerstrabe). Hans-peter blossfeld, professor of sociology at the university of bamberg, will also be on the podium. The 64-year-old education researcher built up the national education panel (NEPS) in bamberg, published 35 books and more than 240 essays, and most recently, together with professor rolf becker of the university of berne, evaluated job entry and career processes over the last four decades.

Master or master, what do you advise?

Hans-peter blossfeld: you can't give general advice, because people are too different. I can only say this: in a study in which we looked at the long-term development of the career opportunities of people with different qualifications over the last 40 years, it was shown that the effort for education and training is worthwhile today more than ever before. There is a theory that the expansion of education brings more and more highly qualified people to the labor market, creating a surplus. In the scientific field, this thesis is called "education as a positional good" and means that whenever the number of applicants with a higher qualification increases, the yields of this education, i.E. The attainable income and the professional successes, decrease.

Wallburg secondary school students convince with the laser

Wallburg secondary school students convince with the laser

The junior company of the walldorf-realschule in eltmann "D!Box", the company, which manufactures high-quality stainless steel snack boxes, was invited to take part in the state competition for the ten best junior companies in bavaria. The junior company emerged from the competition as the third national winner and was presented with a special award for its efforts.

Alongside the junior trade fair, the state competition is the highlight of the project year, where junior entrepreneurs meet and show the public what successes and experiences they have had in their school business. After the schools of the company "D!Box" when wallburg-realschule received the news at the beginning of march that they had made it into the top ten junior companies in bavaria, they were very pleased. However, it soon became clear that the competition could not take place on site in munich due to the corona crisis, and that the competition with a changed concept could only take place purely digitally.

Digital competition

The program quickly responded to the changed situation and called for a "digital competition" into life. This consisted of a questionnaire containing about 20 questions from the areas of business idea, marketing, target groups and customers, pricing and financial planning, communication and organization. This was then processed in the various divisions of the school company.

Dogs inspire at the saaletal school hammelburg

dogs inspire at the saaletal school hammelburg

"Paw on it", six four-legged friends from the dog center of the same name in bad kissingen reliably made this promise during a visit to the saaletal school in hammelburg. Boss nicole trunk and her team accepted an invitation from the employees of the gfi society, who are responsible for looking after the open all-day class in the afternoon.

For about two hours, the schoolchildren listened intently to the explanations of the experienced dog trainer. They watched the dogs (from the magyar vizsla to the romanian spaniel) perform a variety of obedience exercises with great enthusiasm. This includes following commands or retrieving objects.

Also the one or other piece of art was given to the best. Personal contact with the animals was not neglected and all four-legged friends were allowed to be extensively stroked. The surprising conclusion for all participants was the entrance examination for the therapy dog training of goldendoodle marley and his owner ilka. To help impaired people, marley can retrieve objects, open or close doors, and press the emergency button if necessary.

The basic law turns 64

The Basic Law turns 64

"Hello! May we invite you? We celebrate birthday today!" – "who is the birthday boy?" – "it has several parents." – "???" – "the basic law turns 64 today!" – "first?!"

That's how the seven bufdis spoke to passers-by on thursday afternoon in staffelstein's market place. To the 64. On the occasion of the 50th birthday of the basic law, they set up a stand and treated the incoming burgers to sparkling wine, homemade donuts and fattbemmen (french: lard bread).

Together with manfred pappenberger, a lecturer at the bad staffelstein training center (the former civilian service school), they spent a day preparing for the action. The result was a quiz about the basic law, which they presented to the passers-by. The bufdis wanted to know, for example, when the basic law came into force (1949), which body drafted it (the parliamentary council) or which court is responsible for interpreting the basic law (the federal constitutional court).

Eltmann realschule students inspire the audience

Eltmann realschule students inspire the audience

The musical is scheduled to hit the stage in february. Already the first tasting made really desire on more, when one sang from the goddess of the wisdom, athene, "everything, which humans know, they know from her" or asked the question "why are we the way we are – and so very different". The pupils of the choir classes 6a and 6b under the direction of the music teachers gabriele sohmer and sebastian franz took the audience on a short journey into the mythological world.

Similarities to our own world are intentional: even on the olympus, the house is not in the right place and the children keep getting into trouble. "I'm a child, "i am smarter", "i am stronger" it echoed through the wolkenheim, which is why the godter parents zeus and hera organized the competition "the godter olympics" organized.

The gaze is fixed on christmas
Of course, the focus was now on christmas, which is why the brass band played "gloria in excelsis deo" and "joy to the world opened. The choir classes brought light into the darkness with the title "star over bethlehem" or the "song of the moon, who pointed out "i am the clock of the world, i am like a child, i am within reach and yet infinitely far, i make time."

An idea becomes an institution

An idea becomes an institution

For ten years, it has been the perfect way to get in the christmas spirit. A little pious, a little naughty and completely french. Karin bohm, walter vierrether and ralph hartner present stories about the christmas festival. Gerdi mengler is responsible for the high german part of the show. And the "erlacher" provide as always for the musical background.

Karin bohm still remembers the beginnings well. Ten years ago, uwe hanselmann of the "erlacher musikanten" asked her if she would like to read at the christmas party of the fubballers in erlach. Hanselmann was the coach of bohm’s daughter. Karin bohm agreed and took the idea with her to kitzingen. 29 listeners attended the premiere in 2008 – at that time still in the basement of the city hall. One year later there were already 70. The event moved to the city hall. While up to then it was mainly contemplative, with walter vierrether and ralph hartner from 2010 onwards, the somewhat more "angular" christmas stories were also added. A year later there were already 150 guests.

The readers changed with the years. Lothar fuchs was a loyal guest, and the queen of the gardeners and the queen of the landlords also made themselves available. Karin bohm remained the rock in the reading surf, the fixed component, the woman who made all the strings come together.

Much more than just a store

Much more than just a store

There probably wouldn’t have been a grocery store in stammbach if the community had resigned itself to the closure of the diska store almost ten years ago. After the former supermarket was closed, the municipality bought the building, renovated it to make it more energy-efficient, created a lounge area and made the entire store barrier-free. This created the conditions for diakonie hochfranken to get involved and install the so-called cap market system there. In the meantime, the cap market has also become a meeting place and thus a piece of quality of life in stammbach, which the parliamentary state secretary to the federal minister for labor and social affairs, anette kramme (SPD) from bayreuth, paid a visit to over the weekend.

However, in the system of about 110 CAP centers throughout germany, the stammbach case is an exotic one, as michael bursian explained to the secretary of state. Bursian is the training coordinator of the vocational training center of the "diakonie am campus" in hof. "Cap" stands for handicap: people with disabilities also work in the market; to be more precise: they receive training in the commercial or food sector there.

Currently, there are five first-year and one second-year apprentice who, in addition to the general store business, are taken care of by elisabeth gruner and her (non-disabled) employees. The training places are required for school leavers who, despite a mental or psychological deficit, are capable of training but need special guidance. "First and foremost, patience, says store manager gruner.

Rio’s carnival ends with satire and social criticism

Rio's carnival ends with satire and social criticism

The world-famous carnival in rio de janeiro has come to an end with a parade of the best six sama schools. The dancers and musicians paraded through the sambodromo in the million metropolis on the sugar loaf for the last time on sunday night.

Carnival in rio was more political than ever this year. The samba schools’ performances denounced the widespread corruption and rampant violence in sudamerica’s most rugged country.

The second-place samba school "paraiso de tuiti" was led by a vampire who is supposed to represent brazil’s president michel temer. According to a report in the newspaper "O globo", the prasidialamt had asked that the "neoliberal vampire" not be allowed to play again in the samba temple after the official competition.
