Economic concerns impact thyssenkrupp

Economic concerns impact thyssenkrupp

In addition to renewed high losses at the new plants in brazil and the USA due to technical problems and a weak market environment, the long booming european steel business has now also collapsed. The essen-based company posted a loss of 480 million euros in the first quarter, continuing its string of weak results.

The group is currently divesting the loss-making stainless steel business inoxum. CEO heinrich hiesinger has also been able to implement announced sales in other areas, such as civil shipbuilding and the service provider xervon. Nevertheless, the manager, who joined the company from siemens a year ago, still did not dare to make a forecast for the current fiscal year when he presented the quarterly figures on tuesday. The "continuing uncertain overall economic situation" makes it impossible to give a reliable forecast at present. The stock exchange acknowledged the interim results at the start of trading with an intermittent minus of four percent.

The technology business with its plant engineering, elevator and automotive supply operations proved to be a support to the volatile steel business. Hiesinger expects earnings in this division to increase in the second half of the year. Hiesinger still wants to expand this area and to loosen money for it. This works mainly through sales. Last may he had put businesses with sales of around ten billion euros on the sales list. There is now a solution for around 80 percent of this. If it remains sold alone, sales will fall from 50 to 40 billion euros. The number of employees was allowed to fall below 150,000. The most recent figure, including inoxum, was 171,000.

Experts: many fubamputations with diabetes avoidable

experts: many fubamputations with diabetes avoidable

Many of the approximately 50.000 fubamputations due to diabetes in germany were avoidable, according to medical experts.

The risk of amputation can be reduced from ten to three percent through regular checks, a close-meshed therapy network and, above all, good cooperation between several experts in the hospital, said ralf lobmann from stuttgart hospital and member of the board of the german diabetes society (DDG).

To the experts he paid diabetologists, surgeons, wound nurses and orthopadie shoe technicians. Among other things, nerves in the fists are damaged by the so-called sugar disease. Because the victims are not in pain, they often recognize injuries too late and an infection or blood poisoning can occur. In the worst case, affected limbs must be removed.

Since 1996, he has been coming here regularly to represent the local clergyman. "Burkardroth has become a second home for me. The people here are very friendly, says pastor daniel jany. Over the years he has made friends here, some of those he knew as children have since married. The argentinian will remain in burkardroth until the beginning of september.
Daniel jany was born on 19. December 1949 in bahia blanca in argentina. The city is located in the south of the province of buenos aires and has about 280,000 inhabitants. At the beginning of the 20th century, jany's grandparents were. The people who immigrated here from europe at the beginning of the twentieth century found a new home in argentina. His mother was born in argentina, but still spoke italian fondly.

European influence

Typical for the region where pastor jany grew up is the european influence: "about a quarter of the diozese bahia blanca consists of descendants of wolga germans. Together with the italians, spanish and french who immigrated here, they give the region a unique mixture", tells pastor jany.
Schools in argentina do not offer the kind of religious instruction that is customary in germany. Nevertheless, about 90 percent of argentines belong to the roman catholic denomination, six percent are protestants. The churches, however, are rather poorly attended by german standards, as jany can tell us from experience. "In my home country, going to church is not the only sign of faith. Many pray at home and most consider themselves catholics, even if they are critical of the local church", says jany. The church buildings are also very small, so the catholic faith is traditionally practiced at home.
So in argentina it is rather uncommon to become an altar boy. Nevertheless, jany did his service as such – his parental home was very catholic anyway. After his elementary school years, he went to a catholic school and decided to become a priest there. In 1968 he entered the seminary, studied theology and philosophy in la plata and was ordained priest in 1977. He was particularly influenced by the period after the second vatican council.
"Especially in argentina, the second vatican council brought strong changes and reformed the christian faith", pastor jany is convinced. This is also evident in the church service in argentina: most of the songs sung during the service were written after 1965 and are in the spirit of the reform movement initiated by the second vatican council. Traditionally, the church songs are not accompanied by the organ, but by the guitar.

The only thing missing from the town hall gable is a coat of paint

the only thing missing from the town hall gable is a coat of paint

Mayor ingrid reifenscheid-eckert (wgwillanzheim) reported at the castle meeting how a repair of the leaking half-timbered gable, which had been budgeted at around 5,000 euros, quickly resulted in a new construction of the cornice. The mayor announced that only the final coat of paint is missing at the moment. Once this work is completed, the debris can be removed.
The three-member municipality will again invest heavily in the coming year. The SV huttenheim has to renew the roof of the clubhouse and will receive a grant of 15,000 euros for it. The renovation of the mortuary at 10,000 euros and the construction of a parking lot at 50,000 euros are the rough anticipated expenditures.
The market community is currently waiting for a new decision from the neighboring community of seinsheim in order to complete the jointly envisaged dream tour around the tannenberg and the bullenheimer berg to be able to realize the project. The proposal did not find a majority in the market town of seinsheim at the first attempt.
The municipality also has to invest in the tannenberg, because the tannenberg cross, which is visible from afar, is rotten as well as showing signs of weathering and has to be replaced. A cost estimate of over 2000 euros has already been submitted.
Meanwhile, the municipality also has to take care of the network of paths and ditches on the tannenberg, because the water drainages along the paths are repeatedly clogged with washed-out soil.

Minimizing electricity consumption
In the past year, the market community has invested in its clear systems in all three villages and set up photovoltaic systems mainly for self-supply. Since the air conditioning systems run day and night, the electricity consumption has a huge impact on the annual bill. The three photovoltaic systems (willanzheim 50.5 kwp, markt herrnsheim 17.6 kwp and huttenheim 50.5 kwp) should now significantly minimize electricity consumption; energy not consumed will be fed into the grid.
The citizens of huttenheim were astonished to learn that a new building project was planned in the neighboring market town of herrnsheim, and in the area of the orchard path. In the other two districts of willanzheim and huttenheim, building sites are still available, complained burghers.
Mayor reifenscheid-eckert made it clear that the approximately 5,000-square-meter site in question had already been designated in the land-use plan as land intended for construction, so there was no change in this respect. However, according to the head of the town hall, nothing can be done with a square meter price of 50 euros. In addition, the market municipality will be subject to numerous conditions in the approval process in order to protect the orchard. In order not to senselessly develop building land, the interest of those willing to build is to be clarified first, and they are to be bound to the project with preliminary contracts and down payments.
If there is no concrete demand, there will be no development. "We have received a number of inquiries from young herrnsheimers", assured reifenscheid-eckert. The municipality decided to take this step because there are still building sites in markt herrnsheim, but they are all in private hands.

Tauber: are obliged to take in threatened afghans

The cdu is clearly committed to "helping civilian employees who supported us in afghanistan and their families," cdu secretary general peter tauber told the german press agency in berlin. "If they are in danger because of the withdrawal of the german armed forces, they should be offered a place in germany. For us it is quite clear that we have an obligation here."

A year ago, an ex-member of the bundeswehr, who was considered a "latent danger," was murdered in kunduz. After months, the translator was promised admission to germany, which he then did not live to see. At the time, the human rights organization pro asyl demanded that threatened afghan local forces be allowed to leave the country quickly.

The nato mission isaf, which included fighting the radical islamic taliban, officially ends after 13 years on 31. December. At times there were more than 5000 german soldiers in action. The german armed forces are taking part in a training mission with up to 850 soldiers.

Fire in steinach: rescue workers were able to prevent “worse” from happening

Fire in steinach: rescue workers were able to prevent 'worse' from happening

On monday evening, a fire broke out in the oldest part of the "hein gmbh&" building co. KG" to a fire. According to the initial findings of the criminal police fire investigators, a technical defect in a false floor of the building was probably the cause of the fire. According to treasures, the damage caused amounts to around 500.000 euros.

It was a long night for the commander of the hof an der steinach volunteer fire department, michael renner. Only in the early morning hours of tuesday he left his place of action. Fortunately, no people were injured in the fire, but there was a lot of damage to the inventory, he says.

Fire source difficult to reach

The fire department had difficulty reaching the source of the fire, is how renner describes the operation at the building materials trade’s office building. In this context he speaks of fire protection panels on the ceiling and of a tin roof on which a photovoltaic system is mounted. The source of the fire was therefore difficult to reach. His colleagues had to remove the boards from below in order to be able to fight the fire. Unfortunately, it was not possible to prevent the fire from spreading to the adjacent warehouse, where stacks of paper and insulating materials were stored.

Significantly fewer corona infections in bamberg recently

Significantly fewer corona infections in bamberg recently

The covid-19 infection in the city and county of bamberg is flattening out considerably. The number of newly infected has risen in one week (from 7. Until the 14. May) only increased by ten people. In the past two weeks (1. Until 14. May) there were only 25 new traps, according to the health department at the district administration office. In contrast, the number of those recovered from the 7. Up to the 14. May increased by 33 to 417. From 1. Until the 14. May the number of recovered rose by 79.

The current case figures from 15. May: the number of people still infected is 130. 419 people have recovered. In total, 603 people have been proven to be infected with the corona virus since mid march. Again two people have died with the virus. This brings the death toll to 52 plus two who did not die of covid-19 (but were infected).

This means that bamberg is currently far from the so-called "emergency brake": where more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants are recorded within a week, the disaster control authorities must react. For the city and county of bamberg, this was applied to a total of 113 new covid 19 traps. The numbers of the past weeks are far from it. However, at the end of march and beginning of april, bamberg had exceeded the critical limit several times.

So that the situation does not tip over

So that the situation does not tip over

Saturday morning at the truck parking lot of the knauf company. There is a lot of activity. But on this day it is not trucks that are parked and maneuvered. Many motorcyclists are rather seen there. Under the motto" fit for spring – for a safe start to the 2012 season" a free driving safety training for two-wheelers will take place at the parking lot.
Invited by the deutsche verkehrswacht, the driving instructors association, dekra and the kitzingen police inspectorate. With the support of driving instructors from kitzingen, they offer skills training such as correct cornering, full braking from a speed of 50 kilometers per hour, circling, slalom, turning, swerving without braking and swerving with prior braking.

18 motorcyclists died

At the beginning of the safety training norbert muller from the kitzingen police thanked all the motorcyclists who came to iphofen to take part in this very important training session.A look at the accident statistics shows how important it is to react correctly. The number of motorcycle accidents rose by 16.9 percent to 644 in 2011. Of the 81 road users who lost their lives in lower franconia last year, 18 were motorcyclists. The number of injured motorcyclists also increased – by 22 percent from 482 to 588.
Among the first motorcyclists to roll onto the parking lot that saturday were doris and rainer weibkopf from hassfurt. The family bought a machine only six and four years ago, respectively. Both are passionate BMW drivers. "I only got my driver's license four years ago", says doris weibkopf. She especially loves riding in a group. "Last year I already dared to go on rough rides. We were traveling in the alps and on alpine passes." She has not yet completed a safety training course. "But i know from experience how important such training is after the long winter break." Fortunately, both have not yet had any serious accidents. To keep it that way and to get an even better feeling for the machines, they wanted to complete all the stations offered that day.
Thomas then from sommerach has more experience with motorcycling. "I have been riding a motorcycle for 23 years now. I'm currently riding a suzuki DR 650", he tells visibly proud. "For me, riding a motorcycle means a trace of freedom", he says, you spurt the technique and you are much more challenged while driving than in a car. "It's important to be in control of your machine, that's why I'm here today – to get fit again for this year's season." The spring training is enormously important for him, thomas then emphasizes. "Over the winter, you forget one or two things that should simply be in there." There is one sentence that an old motorcyclist once said to him that he has not forgotten: you learn how to ride a motorcycle anew every spring. "I behave like a beginner on the first few rides and slowly build up to the season again. You forget so much so quickly during the winter break. How to approach a curve correctly, weight shifting, braking behavior and gaze guidance." Every season, then rides his motorcycle about 10,000 kilometers – and has so far also been spared serious accidents.
