No Brexit renegotiation, Angela Merkel tells Bundestag
Merkel showed no signs of fatigue in the Bundestag. Indeed, the format of the parliamentary Q&A seems to play to the strengths the chancellor, who comes from a science background and who is known for her command of details on a wide range of issues.

She was particularly eager to aim barbs at the AfD, which, she implied, knowingly distorts empiric reality for political ends.

"As a physicist, I place a lot of importance on accurate figures," she told one AfD questioner while dismissing another by saying, "I don't share your mixture of value judgements and facts."

Deutsche Bahn: Streiks legen Zugverkehr lahm – Ratlose Pendler

Aufgrund von Personalmangel, fehlenden Zügen sowie Engpässen im Netz haben sich Verspätungen besonders bei Fernzügen zuletzt ohnehin schon gehäuft. Fast ein Drittel aller ICE und IC waren verspätet. Das Pünktlichkeitsziel von über 80 Prozent kann die Bahn eigenen Planungen zufolge erst 2025 erreichen.


omggg, it's not just people's imaginations that the punctuality of DB has gotten worse over the years. The snippet above says that a third of IC and ICE trains are delayed, and because of a shortage of personnel and trainsets, the company's 80% on-time goal will not be achieved until at least 2025. o____O
