inhabitants of the falkland islands want to stay british

Great britain immediately called on the argentine government to respect the will of the inselbevolkerung. Argentina, which lays claim to the resource-rich falkland islands, should "take careful note" of the referendum result, prime minister david cameron said tuesday.

International election observers had judged the vote to be free and fair. Falklanders celebrated the result of the vote in the capital port stanley on monday evening (local time).

Argentina has long laid claim to the archipelago in the sudatlantic, just 400 kilometers off the argentine mainland. The government in buenos aires demands bilateral talks with great britain on the sovereignty of the territory, as foreseen by a UN resolution of 1965. Demands have been growing since it was revealed in 2010 that there are exploitable reserves of oil and natural gas off the falkland islands.

Skepticism about digitization depends on further training

In germany, the figure is 57 percent. Whether this is viewed positively or negatively depends to a large extent on people’s level of education and their willingness to continue their education, the consulting firm pwc emphasized on monday when the study was published.

"Our world is highly complex. The trend is upward," said ulrich stork, head of pwc for germany. Changes hours on the agenda. "That is why it is so important not to approach changes and innovations with fear or skepticism, but with positive curiosity, and to help shape them."Compared to the USA or asia, germany would otherwise run the risk of losing out.

According to the study, 54 percent of adults in germany feel well prepared for the use of new technologies. 81 percent of employees would take the opportunity for further training if their employer offered them the chance. 69 percent say their employer gives them the opportunity to improve their digital skills outside of working hours.

Short clip instead of long sermon

Short clip instead of long sermon

"I had not even dreamed of such a response", says pastor gerd kirchner, looking at an impressive statistic. In the meantime, the youtube account of the evangelische kirchengemeinde bad bruckenau has almost 9000 hits. For around eight months now, the pastor has been a regular presence on the internet with striking words and moving images.

Son robin had the idea

The whole story was started by the son of a pastor, robin kirchner. "Since the beginning of march there was a discussion in our house how to continue the service during the corona pandemic", the 27-year-old, who graduated in september with a degree in process engineering, recalls. He came up with the idea of creating short video devotions. "My father was skeptical at the beginning about using the possibilities offered by platforms like youtube, the junior looks back at the initial situation. "Maybe it was the fact that he had to break down time-wise from a one-hour service to a ten- to fifteen-minute sermon."

Powerful clips

The concept, however, had been developed after an "exchange of different arguments between the generations" had been clear very quickly. Expressive clips with suitable pictures or small film sequences with reference to the verses in the church year should be created and placed on the net. In the beginning, for example, there was the "service vehicle", which is now well known in town of the pastor, a small orange electric car with the sticker "on the road in the name of the lord" at the rear, as a continuous motif in the center of the action.
