US ‘not fulfilling’ Syria agreement: Russian military
16 Sep 2016 – MOSCOW: Russia Thursday accused Washington of failing to meet its obligations under the Syria ceasefire agreement, while criticizing U.S. officials for voicing skepticism over cooperation with Moscow. Russian military spokesman Igor Konashenkov slammed the U.S. for what he called “rhetorical fog” intended “to hide the fact that it is not fulfilling its part of the obligations.”
In a statement, he defined the U.S. role as “first and foremost to separate ‘moderate opposition’ groups from terrorists”.”As of the third day (of the truce), only the Syrian army is observing the regime of silence. At the same time, the ‘moderate opposition’ led by the U.S. is increasing the amount of attacks on residential districts,” Konashenkov said.He insisted: “Russia has respected its obligations to fulfill the ceasefire regime in Syria from the first minute.” Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=78157

THE GERMAN KURDISH CHAPTER
Philologische Erledigung einer pseudofeministischen Zwangshandlung
Bertolt Brecht sagt ‚Mann ist man, der es auch beweisen kann‘
“man” geht (wie nicht anders vermutet^^) auf “Mann” zurück (oder um ganz genau zu sein auf “irgendein Mann”, bzw. “jemand”), welches als gemeingermanisches Wort dieselbe Wurzel hat wie das Englische “man”, welches ja wie gesagt sowohl Mann als auch Mensch heißt, genau wie “Mann” früher auch Mensch hieß. Man vermutet, dass dies daher kommt, dass es auf die indogermanische Verburzel *men(ə) (Das Sternchen deutet an, dass es sich um eine Rekonstruktion handelt), was denken und überlegen hieß. Somit war ein “Mann” einfach ein denkendes Wesen, also ein Mensch. Im heutigen Sprachgebrauch ist die Bedeutung eines denken Wesens verloren gegangen und heißt einfach nur noch <erwachsenes maskulines Exemplar der Spezies Homo Sapiens>. Die Urbedeutung des Wortes Mann steckt übrigens noch in Ausdrücken wie “an den Mann bringen”.
Demzufolge ist der Ausdruck “man” geschlechtsneutral, da er sich auf die Urbedeutung des Wortes bezieht, welche ja wie oben erläutert <denkendes/überlegendes Wesen> ist.
Als Quelle habe ich den etymologischen Duden benutzt.
