What particularly strikes me here is German punctuality
"We as refugees have to start all over again in Germany. That's not so easy, because Germany is very different from Afghanistan, "says Emamahmad Azimi, who has lived in Bocholt for seven years and works on the Orbis project. An essential difference is the meaning of time. "We noticed," says Emamahmad, "that people here are very committed to punctuality and that it is rude to be late. Tardiness is rude. I did not know that punctuality is synonymous with reliability. Dealing with time is different in Afghanistan. "Many people from other countries also experience this. If you ask them: what is typical German, they say very often: Punctuality. In fact punctuality plays a big role in Germany. Already the children learn to be home right on time for lunch and arrive on time in school. If someone does not get to work on time, they can easily get in trouble with their boss. Those who are not punctual and allow others to wait are considered rude. Some people prefer to go to an appointment too early. There is a saying: "Five minutes ahead of time is the German Punctuality." The word "punctual" is derived from the word "point". Meant […]

Teatime in Bocholt - and Shelia Fischer is reading
Small stories she wrote as a child, rememberedShelia Fischer, which gave a reading on Sunday in the Gallery June Art.Vorgestellt were two of her books. ?? The other art dealer ?? is a Crimi, which is about dubious art trade. The art dealer does not follow legal paths when it comes to procurement and organizes expensive exhibits for his demanding art lover, such as Chinese vases from the 16. Century. Here he pulls himself to some wounds. The dealings with clients and sellers are characterized by excitement, adventure and persecution by the police. Of course the "love" comes as well? not too short and you can imagine, everything is very complicated. Review: Crime can also be romantic. At the wedding on the Hamptons ?? outweighs the romance. A light and entertaining reading into the world of ?? the rich and the beautiful ?? invites and conceals a tragic story that probably still finds its enlightenment. Shelia Fischer, whose real name is Silke Fischer lives her passion for writing and was very pleased to be able to experience a teatime in the gallery of June Erkelenz. Each at the 1.

The Bocholt Town Hall presents the Bundestag On 26.08.2019 opened an exhibition in the Bocholt Town Hall to the Bundestag. Mrs Schulte is a member of the Bundestag and she introduces her work. If you also want to know how the Bundestag works, just go to the townhouse this week. You can experience a lot. In her speech, she made it clear how important it is to talk to each other. Time is important too. The time it takes to process information and decide what is important and what is not. Opinions are often promulgated in the many social networks. Headlines make sure that it comes quickly to judgments. You no longer read what the content of the report is. This is especially useful for people who want to make opinions. Eg opinions against new cultures. Yes, and then there are too many unwanted messages. If you really read and get informed and spend more than 10 minutes per day on a topic, then it's different. You can get a picture and have a say. And you can talk to each other. So: take time, collect information, rethink information, form opinions and get into conversation. Mrs. Schulte it was nice with you!

After in-house award: CDU party leader of EWIBO "loaned" to the social welfare office
Von BERTHOLD BLESENKEMPER Die Quartiersentwicklung in Bocholt wird strategisch neu ausgerichtet. Dazu soll im Fachbereich Soziales eigens eine auf ein Jahr befristete Koordinierungsstelle geschaffen werden. Den Auftrag erhält im Rahmen einer so genannten In-House-Vergabe die Tochtergesellschaft EWIBO. Wie die Verwaltung auf Anfrage von Made in Bocholt bestätigte, soll Lukas Kwiatkowski den Job bekommen. Kwiatkowski ist nicht nur EWIBO-Mitarbeiter und dort unter anderem Leiter des Projektes „Mein Hochfeld“, sondern bekanntlich auch CDU-Parteichef in Bocholt. Er wird sozusagen für das eine Jahr an die Stadt „ausgeliehen“. Im Rathaus wird die Entscheidung, auf eine öffentliche Ausschreibung zu verzichten und die Stelle innerhalb städtischen Unternehmensgruppe zu vergeben, mit der gerade bei befristeten Stellen im Sozialbereich „geringen Bewerberdichte“ begründet. Zudem habe die EWIBO durch ihre Quartiersarbeit in der Vergangenheit bereits viel Erfahrung in diesem Bereich gesammelt, heißt es auf Anfrage von Made in Bocholt weiter. Neben der EWIBO beschäftigt sich auch die Caritas mit Quartiersentwicklung in Bocholt. Sie kümmert sich um drei Projekte im Bereich Fildeken/Rosenberg und Bocholt-Ost sowie Feldmark/Bocholt-West.
