M Die Idee zu einer Bewerbung hatte bereits im Oktober 2007 KultStadtrat Atai Keller. Die offiziellen Reaktionen vom Kulturbürgermeister, einzelnen Fraktionen und Kulturschaffenden waren positiv. Hinter vorgehaltender Hand aber heißt es aus Rathauskreisen auch: „Dass das kleine Freiburg Europas Kulturhauptstadt wird, ist so wahrscheinlich wie dass der Sportclub Deutscher Fußballmeister wird.“ In diese Minimalchance viel Geld zu investieren, könnte der Kultur sogar schaden: Denn wo soll das Geld für eine erfolgreiche Bewerbung denn herkommen, wenn es nicht an anderer Stelle gespart wird. Der Ministerrat der Europäischen Union hatte 1985 auf Initiative der griechischen Kulturministerin Melina Mercouri das Projekt „Europäische Kulturhauptstadt“ mit dem Ziel beschlossen, einen Beitrag zur Annäherung der europäischen Völker zu leisten. Der begehrte Titel der Europäischen Kulturhauptstadt geht vermutlich 2020 – in jenem Jahr feiert Freiburg seinen 900. Geburtstag – oder 2021 wieder nach Deutschland. Bisher durften sich hierzulande Berlin 1988, Weimar 1999 und im kommenden Jahr Essen samt Ruhrgebiet über die Auszeichnung freuen. Im Kern einer erfolgreichen Bewerbung steht nicht etwa die Frage, was der Titel, was Europa Freiburg bringen könnten, sondern genau die gegenteilige: Was kann Freiburg Europa bringen? So fragt denn auch eines der Kriterien für eine Ernennung explizit nach dem Beitrag der Stadt zur europäischen Kunst- und Die Stadtspitze hat mittlerweile eine 32-köpfige „Konzeptgruppe Kulturhauptstadt“ gebildet, die sich am 27. Juli im Ratssaal wieder treffen wird, und in der neben von Kirchbach und einer Handvoll städtischer Amtsleiter auch Musikhochschulen-Rektor Rüdiger Nolte, Theater-Intendantin Barbara Mundel, Solararchitekt Rolf Disch, Fabrik-Vordenker Martin Wiedemann, der Theater im MarienbadVorsitzende Hubertus Fehrenbacher, Wirtschaftsförderer Bernd Dallmann und Vertreter der Universität und des Architekturforums sitzen.
It has now been a good couple of years since the various anti-SQL proponents have gained enough momentum to come together under the wide umbrella of the term NoSQL. And it is clear that we can never go back: the typical relational database architecture is clearly insufficient for today’s dataintensive applications, and the move to distributed architectures. But is the problem in the architecture or the query language? The two are not interchangeable, though frequently confused. Some answers can be found in the following articles, which represent a progression of ideas on this very relevant topic, based on various articles published in Nati Shalom’s blog: http://natishalom.typepad.com Should Web Apps "Just Say No" to SQL? Pros and Cons of Non-SQL Patterns This paper briefly reviews what is driving the trend of adopting alternatives to the traditional SQL DB, survey alternative approaches, and discuss not only their benefits but also the risks and caveats for real-life web applications.
Presbyterians Join the Anti-Israel Choir Divesting from companies like Motorola Solutions to show solidarity with the Palestinians. By Jonathan Marks June 22, 2014 6:34 p.m. ET The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is bleeding members. Between 2000 and 2013, almost 765,000 members left the organization, a loss of nearly 30%. Last week the church's leadership met in Detroit for crisis talks. No, not about the emptying-pews crisis. The Israel-Palestinian crisis. On Friday, in a close vote (310-303), the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)— the largest of several Presbyterian denominations in America—resolved to divest the organization's stock in Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions. The church's Committee on Mission Responsibility Through Investment said the companies have continued to "profit from their involvement in the occupation and the violation of human rights in the region," and have even "deepened their involvement in roadblocks to a just peace." Israel's counterterrorism and defense measures have included razing Palestinian houses (with Caterpillar equipment), operating Gaza and West Bank checkpoints (with Hewlett-Packard technology), and utilizing military communications and surveillance (with Motorola Solutions technology). The church signaled its antipathy for Israel earlier this year by hawking a study guide called "Zionism Unsettled" in its online church store. In the 76-page pamphlet, Zionism—the movement to establish a Jewish homeland and nation-state in the historic land of Israel—is characterized as a "a struggle for colonial and racist supremacist privilege." In a postscript to "Zionism Unsettled," Naim Ateek, a Palestinian priest and member of the Anglican Church, explains the meaning of the charges in the pamphlet.
Both Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who founded Jamaat al-Tawhid wa-l-Jihad ( JTWJ) in 1999 (see Table 1 for the history of ISIS names), and al-Qaeda head Usama bin Laden came of age during the Afghan jihad against the Soviet Union in the 1980s, but their respective organizations have distinct genetic material, attributable in part to their different backgrounds, leadership styles, and aims. This is the case even though the two groups formed a marriage of convenience beginning in 2004. One key difference involves the socioeconomic background of the groups’ founders. Whereas bin Laden and his cadre grew up in at least the upper middle class and had a university education, Zarqawi and those closest to him came from poorer, less educated backgrounds. Zarqawi’s criminal past and extreme views on takf ir (accusing another Muslim of heresy and thereby justifying his killing) created major friction3 and distrust with bin Laden when the two first met in Afghanistan in 1999.
Why do the Islamic fundamentalists in general—and followers of al Qaeda in particular—resort to terrorist tactics against Americans and other Westerners around the globe? This question has haunted Americans since 9/11 and prompted a host of antiterrorist policies throughout the world. Much has been written and spoken on the subject, and more will be written and spoken in the years ahead. Political geography offers a frame of reference to learn about al Qaeda and other militant Islamic groups and their anti-West, anti–U.S. posture. To explore the point of view propounded by Osama bin Laden and others, this case study uses the ﬁve levels of analysis introduced in chapter three, examined here from a geopolitical perspective. The ﬁve levels of analysis are the: 1) international system, 2) regional, 3) state, 4) substate (tribal groups), and 5) individual. INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM LEVEL From the international system perspective, consider the following historical context of al Qaeda’s militant Islam. Militant Islamic fundamentalists and followers of Islam are heirs to one of the great civilizations of the world. While...
