Tvo women eager to face new opponents

While bayreuth has already gained some experience in the BOL, this season presents a new challenge for promoted oberwallenstadt. For the team around coach simon schrock, this means "tense anticipation", because above all the lack of support from the fans will be missing.

But the TVO ladies are not lacking motivation, training sessions and team cohesion. Coach schrock is also optimistic: "i’m incredibly proud of my girls, we finished last season undefeated and are looking forward to the new opponents in the higher league."

No departure and a new one

The women’s handball team from korbstadt can rely on a well-rehearsed team in the upcoming upper district league season. New addition to the squad is tamina scheer, who will strengthen the backcourt.

fcbayern proud of record sales and profits

FC bayern munich’s fixed deposit account continues to grow. After its highest profit a year ago, the german soccer champions again reported record sales for the 2017/18 season and made a healthy surplus in the process.

The total income of the group amounted to 657.4 million euros (previous year 640.5). The profit decreased from 39.2 to 29.5 million euros, but it is the third highest in the world. Munich’s financially sound options for a rough transfer summer in the coming year have further improved.

"In addition to the sporting successes of the past season, which included winning the german championship and doing well in the champions league, this result is proof that FC bayern also had a good year in economic terms."The munich team won the championship for the sixth time in a row but missed out on a double. In the cup final, the star ensemble lost to eintracht frankfurt. In the royal league, end of the line against real madrid in the semifinals.

Erdogan wants istanbul residents to vote on gezi park

Erdogan wants istanbul residents to vote on gezi park

The spokesman for the islamic-conservative ruling party AKP, huseyin celik, told television cameras on wednesday evening that he had proposed that the people of istanbul vote on the controversial construction project in gezi park. The idea of a referendum was the "concrete result" of a meeting between erdogan and artists, scientists and journalists in ankara.

The people of istanbul or the district of beyoglu could then decide whether the park should remain or whether the planned replica of an ottoman barracks should be built, the party spokesman said. The eviction of a camp in gezi park had triggered the wave of protests that quickly turned against erdogan’s authoritarian style of governing.

Police used tear gas and water cannons to drive tens of thousands of demonstrators away from taksim square during the night. Ten days after the protests began, the situation escalated dramatically with the police action, which drew international criticism and concern. Despite strong warnings from the government, thousands gathered in the square again on wednesday. Demonstrators also held out in the protest camp in gezi park.

Wind farm developers must be partially indemnified

Wind farm developers must be partially indemnified

The offshore wind energy act, which has regulated the development of offshore wind energy since 2017, is partially unconstitutional.

This was confirmed by the federal constitutional court in a decision of 30. June of this year, which was made public in karlsruhe. According to this law, project developers must be indemnified if their projects were no longer feasible under the new law and the preliminary work could be further exploited. (1 bvr 1679/17, 1 bvr 2190/17)

Those affected are not satisfied with this decision. They would rather build wind farms than receive financial compensation.

Delicious or disgusting? How hygienic is the coffee machine?

Delicious or disgusting? How hygienic is the coffee machine?

Every bundesburger drinks an average of 162 liters of coffee per year. Mineral water comes to 148 liters, tea only to 28 liters per head. But instead of talking about the pleasures, the tastes and the trends, we should also take a look at the hygiene of coffee machines and pad machines.

Invisible and tasteless

Researchers have discovered that germs settle in coffee grounds and in used capsules and pads. "Moist coffee grounds encourage the growth of mold.", explains prof. Fritz titgemeyer, head of the food microbiology laboratory at munster university of applied sciences. If an old pad remains in the machine for a few days, mold spores can remain in the pad holder the next time it is used, and these spores then enter the coffee. "Heat-stable toxins, known as mycotoxins, may have formed that you can neither see nor taste."

Water holders and plastic hoses are also real bacteria havens if they are not cleaned well. "Bacteria can settle there in the form of biofilms", explains titgemeyer. These slimy deposits should be thoroughly removed. "However, they can also be found in hoses inside the machine, which are not easily accessible to the user."

The hardcore comedian bembers also strikes in kulmbach

The hardcore comedian bembers also strikes in kulmbach

When bembers speaks his mind, the motto is: "if he’s too tough, you’re too soft". But the bembers fans love the clear words. The dr.-stammberger hall in kulmbach was sold out. Not only in the parquet, but also on the tribune, there was not a free seat left. Many spectators wore bembers t-shirts or hoodies, demonstrating that they are real hardcore fans. Bembers can’t be tough enough. Taboo words like "fuck and "negroes" are a steep template for the coarse franken and only provoke him to speak exactly with this jargon. Wallowing in facts included.

Bembers presented in kulmbach his new soloprogamm: "kaputt, oder was?". The motto loved him enough room to settle accounts with god and the world. Bember’s appearance resembled that of a messiah: long-haired, coarse – with a T-shirt bearing the imprint "hey, listen up!!" Wore. Once again, the "hit and run" mentality was deliberate. Bembers rocked with full hard, even if he actually only "all my ducks" sang. Hardcorde comedy love his fans. And bembers did not exchange.

Internet morality and smombies and, of course, digitalization were at the center of his ridicule. While it would never have been conceivable in the age of the dial telephone to burden other people with pictures of food, today it is the order of the day. On all channels schnitzel and spaghetti are posted. And man will glaze.

“A life experience”: first ghost final in berlin

Even at the pinnacle of german club soccer, everything is different this year, of course. The DFB cup final between bayer leverkusen and FC bayern munich (20.00 o’clock/ARD and sky) becomes the first ghost final in this competition.

DFB president fritz keller is "pained in the soul". But this final match will also be a very special one for the old hases. "Even for someone who has been in the finals more than once, it is something special to experience a game like this," said bavarian captain manuel neuer: "this will be a life experience for me, too."

STATISTICS: FC bayern has lost twice as many cup finals as leverkusen – but it has also played almost eight times as many so far. 19 wins recorded for munich after 23 finals. Of their three, leverkusen won only the one in 1993 and lost in 2002 and 2009. Bayer has not won a single title in 27 years. After winning the championship title, the munich team was able to celebrate its 13th anniversary. Double complete.

German shipping is recovering

German shipping is recovering

The german merchant fleet continued to decline last year, losing its decades-long leading position in container traffic to china.

"It was to be expected that china would overtake us here," said alfred hartmann, president of the german shipowners’ association (vdr), in hamburg on wednesday. On the one hand, this is a late consequence of the long crisis after 2009, on the other hand, china is now the roughest trading nation and relies on very rough ships.

For several years now, the german merchant fleet has had around one-third fewer ships and is thus back at the level of 2008. However, ships are rougher on average than they were back then, so tonnage is much higher. Seaworthy trade has also increased worldwide by more than a third since 2008 to eleven billion metric tons. At the end of 2019, the merchant fleet comprised 2140 ships with 52.8 million GT, which is 184 ships or 4.7 million GT less than in the previous year. Overall, german shipowners control 4.9 percent of the shipping industry, ranking fifth in the world.

Eintracht frankfurt hopes for next european league party

Eintracht frankfurt hopes for next european league party

After 24 years, eintracht frankfurt wants to reach the eighth finals of an international competition for the first time again.

In the europe league second leg against ukrainian champions shakhtjor donezk, the DFB cup winners must not lose after a 2:2 draw in the first leg. Even a draw with more than two goals against – as five years ago in the 3:3 against FC porto – would mean the end of the match. Hurra-fubball is of the hessen still unbeaten this year today thursday (18.55 o’clock/nitro and DAZN) so rather not to be expected.

THE TACTIC: eintracht coach adi hutter, who is actually an advocate of an offensive style of play, is focusing first and foremost on protecting his own goal against donezk. "We can’t just run forward and score goals. For us, it’s first and foremost about not conceding a goal. If we succeed, we’ll be further along," said hutter.

Mayor wants regulated financing

Mayor wants regulated financing

"Red card for strabs !" – the bavarian-wide campaign of the free voters for the referendum to abolish the street extension contribution statute (strabs), which was successfully carried out by the free voters of gobweinstein in front of the edeka market with about 300 signatures. Quite a few of those who signed the petition had believed that the CSU-led state government had already abolished the road expansion fees, which have to be paid by the residents of a road that is to be newly built or rehabilitated. But this is not the case, as mdl thorsten glauber () clarified.
Currently there is no need for action for mayor hanngorg zimmermann (BMG), because at the moment no road is being expanded in the municipal area, in whose costs the residents had to participate. The last mabnahme two years ago was the expansion of the anliegerstrabe in the liebenau in kleingesee, which the burghers had to help pay for.
The next step, however, was the extension of the local road in hartenreuth in the direction of leutzdorf. A citizens’ meeting had already been planned in hartenreuth, but according to zimmermann this is no longer necessary, since all parties in the state parliament are in favor of abolishing the strabs.
In any case, the market town of gobweinstein will no longer be sending out any notices of charges for road improvements, in accordance with the recommendation of the bavarian municipal association. The first to benefit from this will now be the people of hartenreuth, according to zimmermann.
However, he wants a clear statement from the state government on the financing of road construction in the municipalities. Either there is a lump-sum demand per kilometer of local road expansion or a demand based on the number of measurements taken. "We want to have this settled before the state elections", emphasizes zimmermann. No solution for him is the increase in property taxes. Because then the citizens would still have to pay.
Gobweinsteins -chief rainer polster was very satisfied with the signature collection campaign. He assumes that the free voters in bavaria will easily collect 100,000 signatures. 25,000 people are needed to carry out a petition for a referendum.
As glauber points out, the road expansion fees are not only unfair, but can also threaten the existence of many residents.
