PICTURES OF THE MONTH

Winter in Berlin

This month's pictures all come from voyage reporter Richard Carter, who went on a festive trip to the capital. He had a great time on the Weihnachtsmarkt but his advice is to wrap up warm - Berlin can get pretty chilly!

Name: Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven
Geburtstag: 13. Oktober 1925
Geburtsort: Grantham, Lincolnshire

Margaret Thatcher, die der konservativen Partei angehört, war die erste und bisher einzige Frau im Amt des britischen Premierministers. Als solche leitete sie von 1979 bis 1990 die Politik des Vereinten Königreiches.

Ihr Politikstil wurde unter dem Namen Thatcherism bekannt. Ihre Popularität stieg mit dem britischen Sieg im so genannten Falklandkrieg 1982 stark an. Ihre Wirtschafts- und Sozialpolitik wird heute von den einen bejubelt von den anderen scharf kritisiert. Sie rettet Großbritannien aus der wirtschaftlichen Krise, gleichzeitig stiegen aber die Arbeitslosenzahlen stark an.

1984 erreichte Margaret Thatcher unter dem Motto I want my money back den bis heute gültigen 'Britenrabatt' zur Finanzierung der EU.

Die studierte Chemikerin war kurioserweise 1948 auch an der Entwicklung des Softeis beteiligt.

Find out how to make this southern German speciality ...

images/kids_square/food/pretzel_photo.jpg

Pretzels are very popular amongst German kids, especially in southern German regions where they are known as Brezn. In northern Germany, they are known as Brezel. Why not try out this recipe for pretzels for yourself? They are delicious and best eaten when they are still warm.

Before you start, make sure you get an adult to help you!

You will need:

  • A mixer
  • A mixing bowl
  • A kitchen knife
  • Baking paper
  • A basting brush

Ingredients:

  • 250 g wholemeal flour
  • 120 g butter
  • 6 tablespoons of milk
  • A pinch of salt
  • Coarse salt or sesame seeds to sprinkle
  • 1 egg yolk

Making the Pretzels:

  1. Preheat the oven
  2. Put the flour, the butter, the milk and a pinch of salt into the mixing bowl and mix them together until the dough is smooth.
  3. Form the dough into a roll and put it into the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  4. Cut the dough into lumps of about 3 - 4cm and roll each piece into a very thin rope (a little bigger than a pencil).
  5. Fold the dough into a U-shape. Bring the ends together and twist them to the shape of a pretzel.
  6. Lay them on a greased baking tray.
  7. Mix the egg yolk with one spoonful of water and brush the mix over the pretzels. Sprinkle with coarse salt or sesame seeds. Put in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes.

Then ... eat and enjoy!

A simple game ...

Von voyage reporter Lars Hayden

images/medium/lifestyle/sport/england_football_medium.jpg

For a country which prides itself on having invented football, the English football team is something of an obsession. But at the same time it almost always underachieves. The English people find this infuriating, particularly when the team does not play good football. The Euro 2008 Qualification is a perfect example. In theory, the players are better than those of other teams, but something always goes wrong.

The only time the England team did not underachieve was at the World Cup in England in 1966, when the hosts beat West Germany 4-2 in extra time in the final, with 3 goals from Geoff Hurst. England’s third goal is disputed, though, as it cannot be proven whether it crossed the line or not. Since 1966, England has always failed to reach the same level, coming closest in 1990 and 1996 by reaching the World Cup and European Championship semi-finals.

"Football is a simple game – 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and in the end Germany wins" Gary Lineker

The fans are dedicated but also fickle. They praise the players and manager one day and criticise them the next. Nowhere is the saying “you’re only as good as your last game” more appropriate. The favourite gripe is that the team does not play exciting enough football or does not score enough goals. Losing on penalties (in 1990, 1996, 1998, 2004, 2006) and ‘cheating foreigners’ (notably Diego Maradona in 1986) are also things which English fans like to complain about.

The most capped player is Peter Shilton (125 appearances), and Bobby Charlton has scored the most goals for England (49 goals).

'Student numbers up as costs stay down'

This seemed to be the message coming from figures released by the Higher Education Statistics Agency last week. Devolution in the United Kingdom means that different university systems operate in the four nations. Scotland saw a rise of 3% in the number of first year students and Welsh universities had a 4% increase. However, England and Northern Ireland were hit by falls of 2% and 9%.

This, many believe, is down to the fact that Scottish and Welsh students pay significantly less for their higher education than their counterparts in the rest of the country. In Scotland, graduates currently have to pay a graduate endowment of £2,289, which the Scottish Government is in the process of scrapping. Whilst Welsh universities can charge up to £3,145 a year for their courses, the Welsh Assembly provides a grant, which means that Welsh students will pay no more than around £1,255 a year.

However, in England and Northern Ireland, the situation is dramatically different. Students are liable to fees of up to £3,145 a year of their degree. The fall in first year students has already prompted an announcement by Northern Ireland’s Employment and Learning Minister, Sir Reg Empey, that a review of university tuition fees will begin in September.

So, is the principle of free education still right in today’s society, or should this end after school? In the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, education is defined as a human right. Whilst it may be argued that charging people who can afford to pay for university is perfectly fair, it does not seem to be the case that people from poorer backgrounds are fully receptive to all of the publicity that governments in this country put out saying that they can still go to university as there is so much financial help available.

Universities provide a key skills source to power our economies. Countries always aspire to grow richer and by helping to ensure that their people are trained to their full potential, they can do this. Furthermore, it is not simply a matter of money but an issue of whether or not we are going to allow everyone to fulfil their ambitions. That next teacher, engineer or doctor could end up no where near their dreams because they were unable to go to university.

Governments in the UK have recently aspired to reach ever higher numbers, with fifty per cent of all school leavers being a number commonly talked of. This will never happen if there continues to be what many consider, rightly or wrongly, to be a barrier to higher education.

Whether or not universities charge tuition fees, they must be properly funded by government. For if they are not, we as a people will be all the poorer; educationally and financially. Furthermore, the prestige and ability to conduct high quality research and teaching within our universities could be hampered, as academics move abroad to better funded institutions.

What is the UK-German Youth Council?

The UK-German Youth Council

images/medium/generic/computer2_medium.jpg

The Youth Council consists of 20 young people, between 16 and 21 years old, from Germany and the UK. They meet twice a year, and play a crucial role in the development of relations between young people from both countries. They act as an advisory body for the work of UK-German Connection, assist with general promotion and outreach activities, and have input into the website and the further development of the Youth Council.

The October 2007 meeting in Spandau

Our last meeting was in Spandau, Berlin and was extremely successful. We had a jam packed programme of workshops, group discussions and brainstorming activities but there was also time for a spot of bowling and a walk in the town centre … and in true creative spirit, the group even came up with a song about Spandau!

Youth Council members are selected on the basis that they demonstrate a real passion for the promotion of UK and German youth relations. This means that our meetings are always sparked by loads of ideas and lively debate and the last meeting was no exception...

Youth ambassadors and future development

In a relatively short space of time, we mapped out and assigned action points for our Youth Ambassadors programme, produced some excellent materials for primary workshops, planned the structure of a recognition scheme for young people, debated the mechanics and future development of the Youth Council… and much more!

How can I apply?

Youth Council members can be active for up to three years but are asked to re-register their interest in staying on the Council every year. We are always interested in hearing from anyone who would be interested in being involved – please contact Sarah at sarah.jenkins@ukgermanconnection.org for more information.

THAMES PATH BILDERGALERIE

Zu Fuss von der Quelle bis nach Oxford - von voyage reporter Emilia

Im sonnigen September machte ich mich mit einem Freund auf den Weg aufs britische Land, mit dem ehrgeizigen Vorhaben, dem Thames Path von der Quelle des Flusses bis nach Oxford zu folgen ...In drei Tagen entdeckten wir nicht nur unser Traumhaus mit Garten und die Gastfreundschaft der Landbewohner, sondern lernten auch dass es in Gloucestershire Lamas gibt und dass selbst erfahrenen Wanderern nach 60 Meilen die Füße ganz schön wehtun! Gelohnt hat es sich trotzdem - es war ein wunderschöner Ausflug.

Mehr Info zum Thames Path findet ihr hier: www.nationaltrail.co.uk
