Performance Success

Performance Success

Why today’s young people smoke less I have recently in the mirror online read that today’s students will lead a relatively healthy lifestyle. Smoking twice as little as ten years ago, pay attention to healthy diet, more exercise. In a very welcome development. Unfortunately, the explanation of this change of mind by the educational researcher Klaus Hurrelmann in my eyes was anything as welcome but worrisome. Mr Hurrelmann effect young people had seen, that they must be healthy and fit to be performance – based and increasingly competitive on a precarious labour market. Dane Cook has similar goals. The young people turned back traditional values. Security, order, discipline and hard work are experiencing a Renaissance since then “: from the unguarded angle of the citizen in a positive development, isn’t it?” It grows”a sensible, maintain efficient and hard-working generation, which has as its goal, economically and socially, at some point in the safe Port of home to land until retirement to cherish the traditional workplace and to maintain, perhaps even to ascend. Also here can be from hardly anything in this life career, because it always even decides to everyone how he would like to live.

What is so worrying? The motivation of these young people to lead a healthy lifestyle is cause for concern in my eyes (it aside, that excessive and regular drinking sessions, which go beyond the natural experimentation of young people, enjoy still popular). This motivation is based on a huge and ubiquitous power and pressure of competition, starting in elementary school and increases in proportion to the grade level. If taken seriously the assessment by Mr. Hurrelmann, students apparently from the intermediate level more or less in their careers would have to tinker. Find out what is in itself correct. You decide where their strengths are, what is also true. But they do it apparently not only out of a desire, to know themselves better and to test their own skills, but follow the small Career Builder in mind, who diligently put the LEGO pieces together.

Barrier-free Tourism

Barrier-free Tourism

What is behind the term in recent years was the term accessibility, especially in the context of anti-discrimination campaigns to the keyword. Since then the accessibility finds its way into more and more areas of everyday life. The hotel Portal hotelreservierung.de explains what this expression is and why it is becoming increasingly important in tourism. In the Disability Equality Act (BGG), the word accessibility is used as a general term for the equality of disabled people in everyday life. Since accessibility is a synonym for Justice and equality.

“Why the expression but does not, as often assumed, with the word disabled” can be equated, explains the hotel lexicon of hotelreservierung.de. The original meaning of accessibility is that people should be independent of their physical condition able to be able to independently manage and built facilities enter all demands of everyday life. This applies not only to disabled people. Pregnant women, wounded, Seniors or people with small children are facing in everyday life often barriers. Accessibility should ensure public facilities and buildings, but also in the private household, allowing all freely and independently to move. In addition, a claim on modern facilities and services arises from accessibility. To ensure this claim plans, interior design and architecture of plants and hotels, as well as animation, leisure and drinks and menus adjusted in the tourism needs of affected people. Five-tier minimum standards for barrier-free tourism since 2005.
