A slap in the face for spahn: Bundestag rejects 'no objection' to organ donation

Organ donation still only permitted in germany with express consent. The bundestag on thursday rejected a proposal by a group of deputies led by health minister jens spahn (CDU) to reverse this principle. She had a "double dissent" proposed that in the future, everyone would be considered a donor – but one disagrees. However, the bill did not find a majority. In roll call vote, 379 deputies voted against, 292 parliamentarians supported, 3 abstained.

This meant that parliament was now to vote on a second draft introduced by a group led by grunen leader annalena baerbock and left-wing leader katja kipping. It proposes that all citizens be asked about organ donation at least every ten years when they pick up their ID card. It will also point out the possibility of entering a decision to do so in a new central online register. Family doctors should also provide information on organ donation every two years if required.

Commerzbank coburg grew last year in terms of both private and corporate customers. Market share in real estate financing and securities business also expanded. "In coburg, we increased the net number of private customers by 461 and the number of corporate customers by 166, said branch manager susanne blob at a press conference on wednesday. An excellent year in 2017", said stefan hock, head of corporate customers in coburg, also spoke. Blob and hock see one reason for the good business development, also of the entire group, in the further expansion of digitalization. "In two years, 80 percent of all banking processes are to be digitalized", according to susanne blob. On the other hand, the personal advisory service currently provided by 27 employees at the commerzbank branch in coburg is not neglected. "90 percent of customers want this."

Heiber's tip: invest instead of save

Another reason is the fee-free checking account "that is the basis for all customer relationships". The bank branch in coburg serves a total of 11,141 private and 1,268 corporate customers in the region. Lending business also boomed thanks to real estate financing. "For this, the new credit volume amounted to almost 53 million euros in the past year", said susanne blob, which represents an increase of 41 percent. For their branch, they put the volume of customer assets under management at 112 million euros (+ 7.5 percent). What is positive in real estate financing, the currently very low interest rates remain unsatisfactory for savers. According to commerzbank economists, this development will continue for at least two more years. "If you invest your money instead of saving it, you can increase your wealth now at a manageable risk", blob stated. Even with a conservative, i.E. Low-risk investment, a 3 percent return could be achieved. More than half of the customers were treated in this way "while 46 million euros are currently lying unpaid in our savings accounts. Inflation is reducing this asset".

Than the other way around. It calls for the elimination of market barriers, criticizes copyright infringement and forced technology transfer for U.S. Companies operating in china, as well as government subsidies.
