The end of the division (“Die Wende”)

 German reunification (Deutsche Wiedervereinigung) took place on October 3, 1990

So today, the 3rd of October 2018, Germans celebrate the Wiedervereinigung. It is a public holiday in Germany.

“. . . . Berliners from both sides of the city celebrated at the wall as well as on both sides of the border after 28 years of separation. . . .” This took place from 9 November 1989 on!

In the “Deutsche Welle”  was today an interview with Alexandra Hildebrandt who is the director of the Checkpoint Charlie Museum in Berlin:

This is what I found in Google about Hildebrandt’s pregnancies:

“Friday, October 20, 2017

Berlin – At the age of 58, the museum director of the Berlin Wall Museum, Alexandra Hildebrandt, is expecting her seventh child.

As she confirms to the “Bild”, she looks forward to the seventh child as well as everyone else.

Fifth child in five years

At the calculated date of birth – in January or February – the museum director will be 59 years old. For her, it is already the fifth child within five years. In 2013 she got twins, a daughter in 2014, a small son at the beginning of last year. In addition, Hildebrand has two grown children.

According to the head of the museum, the pregnancy came about in a natural way with her partner, the management consultant Daniel Dormann. Artificial insemination did not need it.

It’s in the family

As she goes on to say, there is a late happiness in the family. Already her grandmother had her last child at the age of 60 years.

For the 58-year-old is the re-pregnancy quite associated with problems. For two months she suffers from chronic bronchitis.”

Big sugar and the ‘big flaw’ in Australia’s federal health programs Four Corners By Michael Brissenden Updated Mon at 7:19pm

 

The following is from the updated Four Corners program:

“Australia is now one of the fattest nations on Earth.

Sixty per cent of us are overweight or obese, and by 2025 that figure will rise to 80 per cent.

Despite this, Australia still has no national obesity strategy.

What we do have are two key federal programs — the Healthy Food Partnership to encourage healthy eating, and the Health Star rating, a front-of-pack labelling system.

But the rules for these two initiatives have been set by committees made up of government and public health advocates, as well as food industry representatives.

According to one insider who spoke to Four Corners, “the reality is that industry is … making most of the policy”, and public health advocates are only included “so we can have the least-worst solution”.

Companies like Coca-Cola, Pepsico, Unilever, Nestle and Kelloggs have a seat at the table setting the policies that shape consumption of their own sugar-laced products.

As Australia’s obesity and diabetes rates continue to soar, public health advocates have told Four Corners the industry has been obstructing and delaying policy outcomes that would lead to better health.

And they have likened their tactics to those deployed by the tobacco industry . . . . ”

And here is a warning sign about not feeding kangaroos in a wild life sanctuary. People should really be taking notice of this:

Here in this article it says how bad it is for kangaroos to feed them processed food:

And even feeding them carrots in huge amounts can lead to addiction and very bad behaviour by kangaroos where they become very aggressive.
