  2. Dinner meat at age 41

    Apparently though in the EU it is. 
  3. Dinner meat at age 41

      There may be a reason for that...
  4. Dinner meat at age 41

      Sure, its not  explicitly forbidden to drink rat possion or jump off a high mountain, but it is not recommended either, just like to not recommended to eat pet food, as it not produced to the same standard as human food

      Hey, do not be so quick with dismissing this nutritious ingredient.    
  6. Brexit: The fallout

    I don't see how. I think some people from outside of the EU will be pleased, as they will be able to get to work and settle in the UK more easily than before Brexit when EU citizens had priority over them.  
  7. What made you smile today?

    I don't think you'll find such a link. I think humans are allowed to eat pet food if it is not explicitly forbidden in law. What are you trying to say? 
  9. Dinner meat at age 41

        if you look here  https://ec.europa.eu/food/sites/food/files/safety/docs/animal-feed-guides-good-practice-fediaf_guide_rev8_en.pdf   and search human, you can see many handling differences between foods for animals and humans, eg it says in one place that animal feed can use seman fro m dead animals to make pet food, while its not allowed for the production of human food    On the first couple of pages, it gives a diagram of what can happen to pet food, there is no arrow pointing to it can be used for humans   Well thats my view that production standards are different for pet foods - do you have a link which says its allowed for humans to eat pet food !   and thats why pet food is much cheaper than human food, because its not producted to the same standards and different parts ot the animal can be used.

      I really couldn't care less about who played more golf than who. I prefer to look at the bigger picture. 
  11. Black BAME and POC supporters of Trump

      We're living through scary times when someone can lose their job over something they say or write. Stories like this will make others afraid to voice their opinions, too. It looks like an attempt to silence people, which is something that cannot be tolerated in a  democracy.

  13. Brexit: The fallout

      I don't think it is a 'lose' situation for those people from outside of the EU who want to go to the UK to study, work, settle. Won't there be a lot more opportunities for these people? And what about people in the UK (nationals, or foreign citizens who have already settled there) and find themselves out of work? They will also have more opportunities. That must be one thing that is positive at least.

    Examples ? Do you know what prejudice actually means ?  
  16. Not in the eyes of the Finanzamt!

    In the EU currently all ingredients in pet food have to be fit for human consumption also. It has nothing to do with the price, it's about EU standards.    
  19. Brexit: The fallout

    While its going to be bad for the UK   It should also remembered, that most people think its going to hit the Eire the worst and other parts of EU.   Really this is a lose - lose situation for everybody.   Thats why I always say, I feel sorry for the expected hundreads of thousands of people on both sides of the channel who are going to lose their jobs. Its going to take years, if ever to get back to what we had last year, even after the effects of COVID-19 are taken in to account.

  21. so, if the person you talked to was anything "official" with regards to the Kita system in your hometown, you can safely take their advice.   Your husband will not be registered as "living at your address", he will simply be a regular visitor. His "center of activity", where he normally works, eats, and sleeps, will still be far away from you - so you are living alone, with your child, with no other adult present to help with the daily chores.   Of course you can listen to different people's opinion and act accordingly.   Good luck.

      Pet food, is food that is not supposed to be ok for humans, sure humans can eat it and will generally be ok. But it Pet food, is food that does not meet the standards for humans. Once tested and classifed as safe for humans, is automactically has a higher price.   Think about it, if pet foods were classified as safe for humans, it would have a higher price, but because humans should not eat it the price per kilo is lower. When meats become safe for humans, it  pushes the higher standard meats to a higher level of price.      
  23.   The same situation with us, both  foreigners who do not speak German at home.
  24. They tried to pull that one on us many years ago here in Berlin, but it was the Jugendamt, not the Kita itself.   A letter to the JA saying that we both parents are foreigners who do not speak German at home is a reason for the kids to receive a full Kita voucher and even the second one received a full voucher when he was one year old and my wife was still on Elternzeit.    Not sure in your situation how is the language thing.
  25. We have a newborn (6mo) and our older child (5,5yo) is going in kindergarten (public one), 9 hours per day. Both of us are working full time and I'm currently on parental leave. We applied, in the same KiTa, for our LO and got refused although we already have our older there, they said it is a capacity issue and will be no free spots by that time. It is a shitty situation but we understand and we are already in process of finding place in another KiTa (probably in a private one). However, few days ago, they asked us (from this public KiTa) to reduce time for our older child because I'm on parental leave (and they know that because we applied there for our LO). When we asked what about when I got back to work, will they give us our time back, they said that depends on capacity at that time. So, there are no guarantees. We have hard time to understand that having new baby will put our older kid in, so to say "unequal position" comparing to other kids regarding amount of time spending in KG and that these to things are connected. Shouldn't parental leave be related only to taking care of the newborn? Now we are in really bad situation, which is preventing me to get back to work and could lose my job.   My question is: are they allowed to reduce time for my older child because I'm on parental leave with my LO? And without obligation to restore it? It is a city (public) KiTa. They are forcing us to fill a form with reduced hours. Is there any law which would be applied on this situation and protect us? TiA
