The bundestag is all about sustainability

The Bundestag is all about sustainability

A kind of theme week begins today for the first time in the bundestag with debates on the topic of sustainability. Most people think primarily of environmental and climate protection, both of which will also play a major role.

The principle of sustainability – "according to which no more may be consumed than can grow back, regenerate, and be made available again in the future," as it says in the dictionary – can be applied to all areas of politics. As its three dimensions are considered social, environmental and economic.

Together with the new climate protection law, the bundestag decided at the end of last year that in future it would devote one week a year to this topic. The topic will be a climate protection balance sheet of the past year and the agenda 2030, a UN catalog with 17 goals for sustainable development.

Selection procedure for the clinic’s successor makes waves

Selection procedure for the clinic's successor makes waves

Who will succeed hospital director reinhard hautmann, who retired in march?? FDP city councilors sebastian korber and sebastian platzek sharply criticize the selection process, which was started under former mayor franz stumpf (CSU/WUO) and is now being continued. This procedure is "presumptive" by hautmann "mabgeblich" influences. In a statement by korber and platzek it says: "after the procedure led to considerable displeasure in the foundation committee, an external company was commissioned with the pre-selection of the applicants. Subsequently, the result of a scoring was presented to the foundation committee." The FDP had already asked for the "evaluation matrix for this preselection" asked. In the council meeting on thursday, mayor uwe kirschstein (SPD) now announced "that an evaluation matrix does not exist at all". Consequently, according to korber and platzek, it is "not even remotely comprehensible according to which criteria the preselection was made".

Objectively run?

The FDP duo disagrees with the majority of the city council and the mayor that the company and the objectivity should be trusted. "We cannot understand to what extent the selection process was objective, because the selection of applicants is not comprehensible due to a lack of information, criticizes korber. It cannot be ruled out that the selection result was influenced by third parties according to criteria that are not very objective, says platzek. Even under the new mayor, the process suffers from a "lack of transparency" criticize the FDP rates and emphasize that they will not support any of the proposed candidates. "In our opinion, this unfortunate procedure does not do justice to the importance of the decision for the future of the city".

Medics win narrowly in hausen

medics win narrowly in hausen

It's not every day you get to host a world champion. The joy was all the greater at the tsvgg hausen, which had invited the german fubball medical team to a benefit match. Opponent was a strong old-men team of the hausener. "Too bad that only relatively few spectators have found the way to us", regretted organizer ecki fehr. The present have not regretted their coming. "That was a really good game, then also said doctor trainer hugo faul from nurnberg. "A few years ago, I was coach of the U 15 of the 1. FC nurnberg and back then with my team at the rimini cup", explains lazy how the contact to hausen and ecki fehr came about. "For us, such games are very important, because we can never actually train together as a team", the coach refers to a special problem of his team, which is scattered all over germany and even switzerland (sturmer alex wilhelm). "And bad kissingen in the middle of germany is ideally situated for us", he explains the choice.
While the local "old gentlemen" with crosses, goal kicks and plenty of flaxen play, the doctors reeled off an almost professional program with runs and stretches. The men around spielfuhrer michael hetzel was then also somewhat queasy, because one did not want to concede a double-digit pack under any circumstances. Bastian schober, currently a striker for SV garitz, came as a spectator and would have been most welcome as a reinforcement. He was naturally unable to accept the invitation to join in the game before the final match in frammersbach. But even without him, the team pulled out of the affair very respectable. Uwe bauer and michael hetzel acted as a double libero, so to speak, ensuring an orderly division of space and allocation of their teammates. "They did a great job, lessons learned are lessons learned. It doesn't work that well for us in the first team", ecki fehr was not sparing with recognition. Since also keeper norbert schmitt was a safe ruckhalt, which some hochkarater entscharfte, it hit in the end only 2:1 for the team of the doctors.
The mediziner tried from the beginning to gain control of the game, but the hosts did not hide and played courageously forward. The doctors acted with a flawless libero, marco wolfel uberzeugte with good positional play, lieb against sascha vieth, sven zirkenbach and christoph egerer only rarely something to burn. With a free kick tobias burigk set up a goal in the 36th minute. Minute the arzte defense matt, keeper thomas kobes could prevent sascha vieth only against the rules at the goal shot. Dominik paradies safely converted the penalty kick. The guests did not want to let that sit on themselves, strengthened their attacking efforts. After a shot on the bar, marco wolfel was on hand shortly before the break with his head and gave norbert schmitt no chance to defend.

Camillo floth misses equalizer
After the break the entertaining exchange continued. Sascha vieth, set by frank wilm well in scene, missed just as the renewed hausler lead as christoph egerer. On the other side, alex wilhelm got more support in the attack, the fast matthias burgello made a lot of steam. Bur gello was also the one who scored the last goal with a great strike from 20 meters. The best chance to equalize was missed by camillo floth, who slipped past a sharp input from sascha vieth. When sven zirkenbach narrowly missed a shot, the narrow defeat was sealed. "It was a great test for us, the opponent was evenly matched, so my team was really challenged", according to hugo lazy. "We felt very comfortable here." And there was another winner – kindergarten hausen. During the game, the spectators collected donations, and the guests did not miss a beat either.

Tips for the organic waste garbage can in winter

Every winter it’s that time again: the biomull goes into the organic waste garbage can and sometimes doesn’t want to go out again. Especially when the nights become icy, it is particularly important to take care of the organic waste garbage can, as the contents can freeze in frosty conditions.

According to a press release from the district office of forchheim, the danger is particularly serious if the green garbage can has already been left out overnight for collection. In such cases, the employees of the district’s own refuse collection service try to loosen the contents of the organic waste garbage cans with the help of the vehicle debris. Sometimes the bins can not be emptied completely, because the bins can not be hit on the debris as often and as hard as you like. Especially at minus temperatures, there is a risk that the plastic containers will crack.

Half full back

So it happens again and again that half-full containers must remain behind. These are then usually put back with the lid open so that the user can see that there were difficulties when trying to empty the bio garbage can.

Dfb boss keller: make stadium visits possible with mass tests

Dfb boss keller: make stadium visits possible with mass tests

Mass preventive testing could be the solution for returning spectators to football stadiums. At least that’s how fritz keller sees it.

"There must be a way to regain a certain normality through testing," the president of the german soccer federation told the "badische zeitung" and hopes for a partial opening of the arena for the international match against spain in early september in stuttgart.

The efforts of soccer on the way back to a little normality in the wake of the corona crisis have been received favorably in the political arena. "The question of how football games are held with spectators is an important signal for all other major events as well. The rules have to fit," said federal health minister jens spahn (CDU) at an election campaign event in poland. The concept of the german soccer league is convincing in itself, spahn said.

Gypsy carnival wilhelmsthal: man jokes and a camel with boots

Whenever you think it can't go any higher or any further, the wilhelmsthal gypsy carnival with its host thomas schreiner goes one better.
This year, too, the jubilation roared through the gymnasium in high waves. The reason for it were once more the numerous show inserts, sketches, played jokes and dance numbers. And of course the songs. Party like at the ballermann.

Carnival fans are thrilled

20 points, three rounds. What sounded like a sports table was a full evening program that had the carnival fans laughing themselves silly over and over again.
What happened in "black light began, ended with "let's dance" and a fireworks display. In between, death, prayers, jokes, the hole in the bucket, the popo-polonaise and the topic of fine ribs played a leading role.

The pants pulled down

And then there were… Exactly: a camel that conquered the stage with an impressive invasion. It had rubber boots on. With a twinkle in their eyes and not quite in a youthful way, people pulled down their pants and climbed up a sand dune in order to…
No, the camel was not intended to satisfy certain needs of mating men, but was used solely for transportation out of the desert and into the nightlife. However, there were certain misunderstandings in between…

Speculation about job cuts at deutsche bank

Speculation about job cuts at deutsche bank

So far, the bank had announced cuts mainly abroad due to the global crisis in the sector. The institute has so far been coy about its plans. Employee representatives are nevertheless already preparing for cuts, as the head of the group works council, alfred herling, told the dpa news agency. It is still unclear where personnel cuts are to be made.

A group spokesman rejected the impression that 4,000 to 6,000 jobs alone could be eliminated by merging the IT systems in the area of downstream services, such as in the processing of banking transactions. This "speculation" is wrong, the number is made up out of thin air. He confirmed, however, that the group intends to bundle the downstream services of the postbank, norisbank and deutsche bank brands into a new unit. "There are currently no plans to reduce staff beyond what has already been agreed with employee representatives," the spokesman explained.

Deutsche bank wants to save 770 million euros in costs in the long term through the integration of postbank alone. The newspaper gave the figure of 543 jobs to be cut in the first stage, 20 percent of them in frankfurt, 80 percent at the postbank headquarters in bonn. According to the german bank, this is nothing new – even if the company does not want to comment on the specific figure.

Murdoch manager rebekah brooks in court

Murdoch manager rebekah brooks in court

Brooks and her husband charlie brooks – both close acquaintances of the prime minister – are likely to face trial in the coming weeks on charges of miscarriage of justice, the U.K. Attorney general’s office announced tuesday in london. Four employees of rebekah brooks (43) were also accused of helping her to remove documents, among other things.

Rebekah brooks was chief executive of rupert murdoch’s british newspaper holding company, news international, from 2009 to 2011. She is considered the key figure in the scandal, which also involves too close a relationship between the media and politics and bribing police officers.

Last friday, brooks had to testify before a committee investigating the scandal and had, among other things, put british prime minister david cameron in distress. She maintained close contacts with him at times. She had reported that the latter had sent her cell phone messages with confidential pits such as "lots of love".

Gertjan verbeek, bader’s last arrow in the stove

Gertjan verbeek, Bader's last arrow in the stove

Gertjan verbeek fits the bill for club sports director martin bader. With coach owl hans meyer, the 1. FC nurnberg 2007 DFB cup winner, celebrating the greatest success in the club’s recent history. Under dieter hecking, who also sometimes had a gnarled appearance, the club has been sailing in calm sporting waters in recent years. So now another coach who is considered authoritarian is supposed to give the players a leg up and thus bring the lurching traditional francophone club back on track.

Bader – whose ten-year tenure at the FCN has already seen the sixth change of coach – is once again making a U-turn. With thomas von heesen and michael oenning, he had already relied twice on the young generation of coaches, whose working style and appearance clearly differed from those of the "hard dogs of the industry. With vogel, who has also been described as "soft" by the public the perceived michael wiesinger, bader once again did not show a happy hand and corrected this – almost reflexively – by installing the disciplinary fanatic verbeek.

It remains uncertain, however, whether this will be able to stop the sporting downturn. Despite his sporting successes with AZ alkmaar, the dutchman has finally been dismissed prematurely due to his controversial style of management – as he was previously at feyenoord rotterdam. In this respect, the appointment of verbeek, who has never played in the bundesliga before and entered new territory yesterday, involves a great risk.
