Calling someone a rat should no longer be considered an insult. The often maligned rodents go out of their way to liberate a trapped friend, a gregarious display that’s driven by empathy, researchers conclude in the Dec. 9 Science.

“As humans, we tend sometimes to have this feeling that there’s something special about our morals,” says neuroscientist Christian Keysers at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience in Amsterdam, who was not involved in the study. “It seems that even rats have this urge to help.”

Researchers in neuroscience find that rodents show empathetic behaviour toward each other!


 

The University of Chicago

Am 06.07.2015 veröffentlicht

In a series of experiments, University of Chicago researchers observed the first evidence of helping behavior triggered by empathy in laboratory rats. The researchers, psychology graduate student and first author Inbal Ben-Ami Bartal and co-authors Jean Decety, the Irving B. Harris Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, and Peggy Mason, Professor of Neurobiology, published their observation today in Science. It places the origin of pro-social helping behavior earlier in the evolutionary tree than previously thought. Though empathetic behavior has been observed anecdotally in non-human primates and other wild species, the concept had not previously been observed in rodents in a laboratory setting.

Neo-Nazi Demonstration in Dortmund – Speech by Bernd Schreyner (AfD) 21.12.2018

On 21.12.2018 neo-Nazis of the party “The Right” demonstrated for the release of the prisoners Siegfried “SS-Siggi” Borchardt, Steven Feldmann and the Holocaust denier Ursula Haverbeck [convicted for her Holocaust denial] in front of the JVA [prison] in Dortmund.

Among the speakers was Bernd Schreyner, member [and ex-local chairman and election candidate] of the AfD Dortmund, who criticized the detention of the neo-Nazis in his speech. In the run-up to the demonstration, the right-wing extremists had announced on their website the speech by the AfD representative.

DIETRICH BONHOEFFER: Ab April 1933 nahm er öffentlich Stellung gegen die nationalsozialistische Judenverfolgung| Auf ausdrücklichen Befehl Adolf Hitlers als einer der letzten NS-Gegner hingerichtet.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (* 4. Februar 1906 in Breslau; † 9. April 1945 im KZ Flossenbürg) war ein lutherischer Theologe, profilierter Vertreter der Bekennenden Kirche und am deutschen Widerstand gegen den Nationalsozialismus beteiligt.
Mit 24 Jahren habilitiert, wurde Bonhoeffer nach Auslandsaufenthalten Privatdozent für Evangelische Theologie in Berlin sowie Jugendreferent in der Vorgängerorganisation des Ökumenischen Rates der Kirchen.

Ab April 1933 nahm er öffentlich Stellung gegen die nationalsozialistische Judenverfolgung und engagierte sich im Kirchenkampf gegen die Deutschen Christen und den Arierparagraphen im Berufsbeamtengesetz. Ab 1935 leitete er das Predigerseminar der Bekennenden Kirche in Finkenwalde, das, später illegal, bis 1940 bestand. Etwa ab 1938 schloss er sich dem Widerstand um Wilhelm Franz Canaris an. 1940 erhielt er Redeverbot und 1941 Schreibverbot. Am 5. April 1943 wurde er verhaftet und zwei Jahre später auf ausdrücklichen Befehl Adolf Hitlers als einer der letzten NS-Gegner, die mit dem Attentat vom 20. Juli 1944 in…

Kleine Schuhe rücken Missbrauchsopfer von Lügde in den Blick

Hannover/Lügde – Gemusterte Gummistiefel, rosa Ballerina und Turnschuhe in bunten Farben: Rund 50 Paar kleine Schuhe hat die Initiative “Kinder von Lügde” am Mittwoch vor dem niedersächsischen Landtag aufgestellt.

Jedes Paar Schuhe steht für eines der Missbrauchsopfer von Lügde.
Jedes Paar Schuhe steht für eines der Missbrauchsopfer von Lügde.

Jedes Paar steht symbolisch für ein Opfer der Missbrauchsserie auf einem Campingplatz im Kreis Lippe.

Ein 56 Jahre alter Dauercamper soll gemeinsam mit Komplizen jahrelang mehr als 40 Mädchen und Jungen sexuell missbraucht und dabei gefilmt haben – es gibt weitere Verdachtsfälle.

Seit acht Wochen demonstriert die von Privatleuten gegründete Initiative mit ihren kleinen Schuhen einmal wöchentlich in Hameln. …

JOAN BAEZ SINGS BETTINA WEGNER´S SONG: “Sind so kleine Hände winz’ge Finger dran. Darf man nie drauf schlagen, die zerbrechen dann…” English lyric added.


CHILDREN IN SHADOW ::: CHILDREN IN WAR

Sind so kleine Hände

Performed by: Bettina Wegner (1978)
English Translation: Sam C. Chan

Sind So Kleine Hände

Sind so kleine Hände
winz’ge Finger dran.
Darf man nie drauf schlagen
die zerbrechen dann.

Sind so kleine Füße
mit so kleinen Zehn.
Darf man nie drauf treten
könn’ sie sonst nicht geh’n.

Sind so kleine Ohren
scharf, und ihr erlaubt.
Darf man nie zerbrüllen
werden davon taub.

Sind so schöne Münder
sprechen alles aus.
Darf man nie verbieten
kommt sonst nichts mehr raus.

Sind so klare Augen
die noch alles sehn.
Darf man nie verbinden
könn’ sie nichts versteh’n.

Sind so kleine Seelen
offen und ganz frei.
Darf man niemals quälen
geh’n kaputt dabei.

Ist so’n kleines Rückgrat
sieht man fast noch nicht.
Darf man niemals beugen
weil es sonst zerbricht.

Grade, klare Menschen
wär’n ein schönes Ziel.
Leute ohne Rückgrat
hab’n wir schon zuviel.

Such small hands

Such small hands
