Veränderung durch Ideen

Immer wieder wird der Ruf laut nach einer Law-and-order-Strategie – aber: wird hierdurch wirklich ein Umdenken erzielt? Sind überhaupt ausreichend freie Kapazitäten vorhanden, um Zuwiderhandlungen zu ahnden und Bußgelder zu verhängen? Und werden durch ein derartiges Durchgreifen nicht noch weitere Aggressionen oder Trotz hervorgerufen?Die Auswertung bisheriger Maßnahmen hat ergeben, dass eine Vielzahl von Projekten über einen zu kurz gefassten Zeitraum angelegt waren und eher Aktionscharakter hatten. Meist mangelt es an Betreuung und Informationen, die Einbeziehung aller Beteiligten wird oft vernachlässigt.
Es hat sich in anderen Städten – insbesondere in der Schweiz – gezeigt, dass Beharrlichkeit, positive Motivation, Information und koordiniertes Vorgehen aller Beteiligten schrittweise zum Erfolg führen.stadt&hund führt daher für jedes Projekt eine genaue Standortanalyse aus, die als Grundlage dient für die zu treffenden Maßnahmen. Diese werden von stadt&hund zusammen mit dem Auftraggeber und den vor Ort Beteiligten geplant und umgesetzt. Dazu gehört sowohl eine ständige Erfolgskontrolle als auch die regelmäßige Anpassung und Erweiterung der getroffenen Maßnahmen.bilder/grafik_ablauf.jpg

I love translating-machines!!! This is the English translation of a dermorgen. blogspot article of July 31 about Wolfgang Clement’s exclusion from his beloved SPD. Enjoy!

(Kastanienallee near GLS language school)

T here is hardly someone who is his party so thoroughly exclusion has developed such as Wolfgang Clement. Now it’s ready. Perhaps it is this: The SPD may well Clement to renounce because they Sarrazin now with a greater talent, then when it comes to post-lustvolles Come down and the wording of the rechtsbürgerlichen Dünkels.

A llerdings means the party exclusion by the SPD in North Rhine-Westphalia initially only then that the Federal Arbitration matter. Here, Clements friends from the Seeheimer circle the shots. The exclusion of the federal SPD should be repealed. You will not get rid of him.

E rinnert was an insult to the propaganda in the famous brochure by Clement opposite HartzIV aid recipients:

Biologists use for “organisms that are temporarily or permanently to meet their food conditions at the expense of other living creatures – their hosts live,” agreed the term “parasite”.

H nor anybody at this so-called Sozialschmarotzer brochure by Clement? Ah, I see straight, because it is yes. Who verantworltlicher ministers such as Hetzschriften can produce, the shortage is very much in decency. The SPD, thanks to Clement lost several thousand members. This ex-“super-minister” would be no party for a profit, even if the FDP has been for some time about him happy.

I’m 36 now! My God! And I always found it kind of funny that 1st of August is the birthday of Switzerland too. The place I used to live with my parents when I was a kid was close to the swiss border. And every 1st of August there were these great fireworks on the swiss side of Lake of Constance. When I was a kid I was convinced that the Swiss had the fireworks to celebrate my birthday. I absolutely loved them. If you didn’t love them so far, look at how they celebrate their Nationalfeiertag on August 1:
