“Massive relief”: plan for power line p44 off the table

Bavaria’s economics minister hubert aiwanger (freie wahler) has given up his opposition to the construction of the crude new power lines suedlink and southeast-link to bavaria: "i see the federal republican decision and can do nothing about it", aiwanger said after a cabinet meeting focusing on energy policy. Until now, aiwanger had been counting on the increased expansion of decentralized energy generation in bavaria to prevent the construction of the new electricity highways after all.

Explosives for the coalition

The head of the free-choice party can at least chalk up as a success the fact that the federal government has now abandoned the controversial "P44" pipeline connection from thuringia through parts of upper franconia to grafenrheinfeld (district of. Schweinfurt) wants to waive. This waiver also applies to the "P44 mod" alternative routes discussed. The "P43" coalition planned line from mecklar in hesse to grafenrheinfeld is also now to be built as an underground cable project. These two decisions are a success of current bavarian negotiations in berlin and "a massive relief for lower franconia", aiwanger finds.

The power line issue had previously been seen as a potential explosive for the coalition between the CSU and the free democratic party (FU). In contrast to aiwanger, minister-president markus soder (CSU) had always declared the new nationwide electricity highways to be indispensable for bavaria. "Bavaria is not blocking the route expansion", soder also emphasized after the cabinet meeting at a joint press conference with aiwanger. His government commits itself "without ifs and buts" on suedlink and southeast link: "we need these routes, but we have achieved significant improvements for the citizens", the minister president praised. The fact that aiwanger is now supporting this course shows "strategic flexibility" of the bavarian coalition.

Spix musical celebrates premiere

Spix musical celebrates premiere

Two pastors stand on the stage in front of the empty rows of chairs. It is difficult to tell from a distance that it is an original and a fake. The long blond hair alone indicates that something can't be quite right with one of the two wortdentragers.
Talena mixdorf from the seventh grade of the middle school takes over the role in the musical "ritter spix – woher? Where to? What gives life meaning?" The role of the pastor. The robe she wears is on loan from hochstadt dean kilian kemmer. Their sneakers peek out from under their wide, white gowns. "In the spotlight, it's easy to start sweating in your robe. It can be exhausting," says, says talena. The real dean laughingly waves it off. It's all a question of routine.

Similarities cannot be ruled out

"My role is a bit similar to that of the real dean of hochstadt. You might notice that in the way I speak on the stage", smiles talena. In the stucco, against the backdrop of the streets of hochstadt and the replica of the spix statue, there will also be a meeting between the burgermeister and the pastor. Similarities with living persons cannot be completely ruled out here. "Talena will definitely play the role well. In religion class last year she practically went to casting with me", laughs the dean. As pastor of hochstadt, talena im stuck will take a school class on the paths of spix's rough naturalist. The most important stages of his life, such as the rough trip to brazil, are portrayed on stage by the students.
Carolina bohra, a teacher at the school, directs the choir and vocal training for the soloists. A musical of this magnitude naturally requires a great deal of discipline from the students. "During the rehearsals throughout the school year, you could really feel that all the schoolchildren involved had matured a bit", according to the teacher. Principal michael ulbrich and the students first had to recount exactly how many weekends the students spent working on their musical project. "Even during the easter vacations there were three days of rehearsals. The students just had a lot of fun", says ulbrich.

Michael pfeiffer is the best ihk brewer of the year

Michael pfeiffer is the best ihk brewer of the year

Horst jacob doesn’t care whether he goes to high school, college or university. It does not depend on the school-leaving certificate whether one becomes a good brewer. You should be interested in biology, physics and technology, be hygiene-conscious and have a certain social competence, says the long-serving brewmaster at the kesselring brewery in marktsteft, germany.Prerequisites brought by michael pfeiffer. It was worth it for kesselring to hire wiesentheider as an apprentice: he was awarded last week by the chamber of commerce in wurzburg as the best brewer/painter in his exams.

The 22-year-old has long known that he wanted to become a master brewer. Beer interested him far beyond the taste. Already at the age of 16 or 17 he tried to brew beer at home, michael pfeiffer tells us. "I started with homemade utensils and an electric stove." You don’t just drink the beer, you get to grips with why it tastes the way it does and experiment with it. He still gets a kick out of it: "I still do it two or three times a year."

If you want to become a graduate brewmaster, you either have to do a long internship or an apprenticeship before you start your studies. Michael pfeiffer decided to train, applied for a job at kesselring. The company has been regularly training brewers for decades. Also on 1. Two apprentices started their training in marktsteft on september.

How prejudices can work

How prejudices can work

It’s not unusual for schoolchildren to read in class. The fact that they had to deal with demanding texts in the course of their schooling was equally unimpressive. Nevertheless, the reading piece that katrin fischer-sandhop and hans-werner fischer had rehearsed with the refugees, who are currently attending the vocational integration pre-class of the technical high school, was a special one. The prose text by franz fuhmann is about the effect of prejudice and incitement. "The jewish car made clear in a vivid way how one’s own perception can be influenced.

A young boy sees himself threatened by strangers and describes the abduction of young girls by "the jews" in class. But suddenly this threat turned out to be an illusion. The boy was blobgestellt. From then on he hated the "jews" only more.

The schoolchildren brought the reading play to the theater "das baumann on stage – not only as a mere text reproduction, but they built in acting elements.

Afd-eklat: politicians who have taken leave of their senses

Afd-eklat: Politicians who have taken leave of their senses

His book on decency in difficult times came at the right time. A bestseller, not by chance. Of course, axel hacke is not only concerned with exposing indecent behavior in politics. But also, left and right.

Haven’t we long since become a society in which – taking into account the fact that each age defines its own concept of decency – basic values such as proper behavior have long since gone by the wayside?? It’s bad enough that this very question comes up again and again. Especially, as now again, with the afd.

Now the lamenting may begin – about exclusion and prejudice. Always with the aim of somehow turning the offenders into victims after all. Especially in the social media. Just there, where a number of commentators seem to have long since abandoned not only all sense of decency, but also all good spirits. So let’s take a closer look at what it means: decency is more than just respect – although even that was enough for an elected representative of the people to put up with critical remarks about the politics of his own party. Decency also means sensitivity, correctness, maybe even humanity. All of which are qualities that we should demand of our politicians in particular.

“You have no chance. Use her!”

The media interest is great, and so is that of the guests: the two SPD district chairmen stefan sauerteig (coburg city association) and carsten hollen (district SPD) registered over 70 registrations in advance, and television crews had also announced their intention to attend. Simone lange, the woman who wants to replace andrea nahles as chairwoman of the SPD, makes her only appearance in bavaria this friday evening, at the gasthof sauerteig in rodental.
On sunday, the party congress will take place in wiesbaden, where – if the party board has its way – andrea nahles will be elected SPD chairwoman. Simone lange declared her candidacy in february out of protest, as she recounted in her one-hour speech: because nahles, not yet a member of the party executive committee, was to become acting chairwoman at that time, even though that is not possible under the party statutes. "If we don’t take our statutes seriously, how can others take us seriously??" Simone lange asks the attentive and mumbling audience in the packed hall.
An alternative to andrea nahles – that’s also what michael busch wants. "I don’t want a ‘pippi-longstocking-on-her-face’ chairwoman – and neither do many other members", says the district administrator and state parliament candidate. Of course it’s normal for the incumbent board to propose a candidate, busch stresses. But internal party democracy includes the possibility of an opposing candidacy, and he is glad that simone lange is taking on this undertaking. "Ware i was 15 years young, i had organized myself what simone lange is doing now." So he just directed them to upper franconia, got the last possible appointment. Still in the late evening, simone lange continues her journey from rodental to frankfurt.
"When I’m national chairwoman", this sentence comes up several times when she talks about the need for the SPD to renew itself, to find a program again that will convince voters. In dark blue pantsuit and white sneakers, she speaks freely and with concentration. Her theme is the party, which needs to regain credibility. 18 percent of the vote is not a good perspective, and simone lange, a police officer for 15 years, diagnoses fear in her party of further slippage.
She wants to fight this fear, she says. Members should not only be consulted on the rough coalition and all other possible questions, but also on the question of who should take over the chairmanship, she demands and earns loud applause. The party members had to "define goals," says. "Time for justice, the slogan with which the SPD entered the 2017 election campaign with martin schulz "is not a goal, but a state that I can achieve if I define and implement the right goals!" She received more than 50 requests for appearances after her candidacy, 20 of which she accepted, she said. For them, it’s tests whether they meet the mood in the party.
Apparently already. "You are the personified hope bearer", says michael busch after her speech. The votes of the upper franconian guests who came to the sauerteig inn on that friday evening were probably secure. But of the listeners, only three were delegated to the party conference: the two district chairmen carsten hollein and stefan sauerteig, and jonas merzbacher, mayor of gundelsheim in the district of bamberg. He declares even before the evening begins that he will vote for simone lange, stefan sauerteig and carsten hollein do so afterwards.
She had the support of her base: "you are the better solution for a renewal of the SPD, says gerhard leerfeld, longtime party member and chairman in untersiemau. Michael busch recalls his own first county council campaign: "you don’t stand a chance. Use it."

After eugh ruling: altmaier does not want to go back to the time clock

After eugh ruling: altmaier does not want to go back to the time clock

Following the european ruling on the recording of working hours, german economics minister peter altmaier sees no need for action in germany for the time being. The CDU politician warned against additional bureaucracy for employers and employees.

"The ruling points in the wrong direction," altmaier said in berlin on tuesday. "It is the wrong way to reintroduce the time clock everywhere."According to the current legal situation, there is already a comprehensive documentation system in germany that can be used to measure daily working hours. Criticism from the SPD.

Altmaier said the economics ministry would closely examine the ruling of the european court of justice (eugh) and commission a legal opinion to determine whether there was any need for action at all. "We want to and must protect the interests of employees, but we must not create an excessive bureaucracy."

Result of the hammelburg referendum causes confusion

Both sides are surprised: the last days before the referendum on sunday, she had doubts whether the citizens’ initiative could prevail, says her representative elfriede dickert. Even the majority of the city council members who supported the burgerhaus plan did not expect the result to be like this.

The representatives of the burgerinitiative are happy that they were successful and that the voters rejected the burgerhaus plan. Those who have campaigned for the city’s plan, on the other hand, are talking about disenchantment and frustration. "We don’t know how to deal with the result", says a city councilor. The decision was not only very close, with 169 votes in favor of the citizens’ initiative. The outcome of the vote also raises a number of questions in terms of content.

With their decision in favor of the citizens’ initiative, the electors spoke out in favor of the city council’s decisions being rescinded "with the aim that a more cost-efficient citizens’ house be built on the same site". The initiative’s question was therefore aimed at the costs alone.

Warnings for hidden electricity price increases

warnings for hidden electricity price increases

Among them are two discounters that aggressively advertise cheap prices on comparison portals and then increase them as unnoticed as possible.

If the providers who have been warned remain intransigent, they will be sued, the consumer advice center announced, referring to a ruling by the dusseldorf higher regional court. The court had already criticized such an opaque e-mail from an energy provider in 2016 and declared its price increase invalid.

The actual purpose of the letters to customers, namely to inform them about price increases, was so cleverly hidden that many people perceived the letters as advertising and did not read them. In this way, customers are prevented from exercising their special right of cancellation.

Mary’s group hangs again on the courtyard pharmacy

mary's group hangs again on the courtyard pharmacy

The trinity group is again hung on the corner of the courtyard pharmacy. It was missing for about two years, because after a stucco had fallen down, it had to be renovated.

Now the house figure group that most dominates the cityscape of bamberger shines again in its old glory, in its old place in karolinenstrabe, at the stairway to the imperial cathedral. The hof-apotheke is one of the oldest pharmacies in germany, documented in 1437.

In the middle of the 18. The rococo sculpture attributed to georg reub was installed at the end of the nineteenth century. Above are three older coats of arms from the late 16. Century. The interior of the building still has the ornamental stucco of a material chamber from 1772 in rococo style. All this can be read in the publication "580 years of the hof pharmacy in bamberg. A small chronicle", which is available in the pharmacy for a nominal fee of three euro; furthermore in "the art monuments of bavaria, city of bamberg, burgherliche bergstadt" (in german), by tilmann breuer and reinhard gutbier, published 1997.
