“The wave” in habfurt opens despite pipe damage

The association of the habfurt school center, which runs the school center and the swimming pool, has not yet been able to repair the damage to the pool and the pipes. Nevertheless, water loss can probably be mitigated by controlling the supply lines. According to the information provided, "further investigations also revealed that one of the supply lines does not appear to be affected by damage".

"The wave" had been closed three weeks ago because damage to the pipe network had been detected. The water loss was enormous.

Viennese classical music inspires at the jubilee concert at rosenau castle

The history of the chamber concerts at rosenau castle is a success story that no one would have dared to dream of 25 years ago. This success story – it is inseparably linked with the bamberger string quartet. It almost goes without saying that the anniversary concert in the marble hall was reserved for the bamberger string quartet.
At the 100. Concert at schloss rosenau the quartet, consisting of members and former members of the bamberger symphoniker, presented a program exclusively dedicated to works of the viennese classical period and reserved for pieces by the composer triumvirate haydn, beethoven and mozart.

It was already unbelievable in haydn’s C-major divertimento from opus 1 that the last personnel change of the quartet, founded in 1975, with branko kabadaic as the new man on the viola, set fresh artistic accents and really fired up the ensemble. Haydn’s work naturally revealed the special characteristic of the bamberger string quartet – the warmly timbrated, always rounded and balanced overall sound of the ensemble.

What will become of the 1. August changes

What will become of the 1. August changes

– organ donation: regardless of the ongoing investigation into the organ donation scandal, transplants will be flanked by new legal regulations. An audit commission based at the german medical association is now taking a closer look at transplant centers and organ removal clinics and informing the relevant state authorities in the event of violations of the transplant law. Transplant hospitals must also appoint transplant officers. Living donors now have a claim against the organ recipient’s health insurance company for medical treatment, pre- and post-donation care, rehabilitation, travel expenses and sick pay. In the event of incapacity for work, you will also receive continued payment of wages. The costs must be covered by the health insurance of the organ recipient. If the donor suffers health problems in connection with the organ transplant, the statutory accident insurance will now cover the costs. The start of the planned survey of citizens on their willingness to donate organs in the event of death will not take place until the beginning of november.

– toll: tolls will now also be charged on well-maintained federal highways for coarser trucks – on routes with a total length of around 1,000 kilometers nationwide. The federal ministry of transport hopes this will generate an additional 100 million euros a year for road construction. As on the approximately 13,000 kilometers of autobahns, the extended toll – an average of 17 cents per kilometer – must be paid for trucks over twelve tons. The bundesrat had already cleared the way for the expansion of the toll in may of last year. However, the negotiations with the toll operator toll collect dragged on for a long time.

Middle Franconia: pregnant sheep bucks out and flies into pool - police with rescue operation

Police rescues pregnant sheep: the sheep was actually grazing in the eastern pegnitz valley. But unlike his herd, the trusty beast dared to take a walk in the mogeldorf of central franconia. This ended finally in the pool of a private property. The resident had alerted the police when he saw the sheep walking through his garden. USK officers went to mogeldorf to take a closer look at the situation.

"It’s extremely frustrating," confessed the alpine director in beaver creek, america. "Whenever we were just about to catch up with the world’s best, these accidents happen to us."

Still on friday evening stechert was examined in detail by the knee specialist in vail – in a preliminary diagnosis the german team had still assumed "90 percent" of the third cruciate ligament rupture of the 27-year-old oberstdorfers. At least a slight all-clear was given: a thorough examination revealed a tear of the aubenband in the left knee, a contusion of the fibula head and a slight injury to the cartilage.

Vacation in corona times: “it’s already in germany”

For the past six months, the coronavirus has taken hold of many countries and people around the world, causing economic collapses and social disruptions. The travel industry in particular has suffered greatly and many long-distance trips have had to be canceled or cancelled. How much have people”s vacation plans suffered??

Kurt zink (66, altenschonbach): i am more of a campground vacationer, but because of the corona pandemic i have not made any rough plans. As a pensioner, I have vacation all year round and am not restricted to the summer vacations. Possibly I will undertake in the autumn perhaps still another moving vacation.

No vacancies are likely to become available in the federal police any time soon.

A young man brandishes a vodka bottle, harasses passers-by and repeatedly gets menacingly close to the railroad tracks. "That’s a pretty realistic scenario for berlin.", says andrea nahles before watching a training session at the bamburg federal police training center. The young police officers do their job well, the drunk is controlled and led away under the eyes of SPD celebrities, police colleagues and a considerable number of journalists.
Bamberg, erlangen, furth – in blistering heat, andrea nahles is on the road in franconia to support her local comrades two and a half months before the bavarian state election. In bamberg, where she last visited in 2012, the only thing on the agenda was the federal police training center. "The tasks of the federal police have grown considerably and we have invested a lot of money here", says nahles. There are currently 6200 federal police trainees, around 2200 of them in bamberg. Center director thomas lehmann gives visitors a brief overview of the land, which currently covers about 100 hectares. "We have almost every usable building site in use. It’s not as if the federal police simply said, "we need a giant land", lehmann explains. "We feel super comfortable in bamberg", confirms the president of the federal police academy, alfons aigner. The number of applicants is also good, with around seven applications for every training place. Aigner was not the only one to appreciate the SPD chairwoman’s statement about the center’s future prospects: "i believe that we will have a large number of trainees here over a long period of time. You can’t have an effective state without personnel."
On this issue, even the mayor of burgundy, andreas stark (SPD), is a realist. The city had a clear agreement with the federal police that buildings were released as soon as they were no longer needed for training purposes. But this is probably not to be expected before 2024. Starke also pointed out: "the federal police are an absolute gain for the city. It means more safety and thus also more quality of life."
Strong wish for the SPD chairwoman goes in a different direction. He calls on andrea nahles to exert her influence on the maximum occupancy of the future bamberger anchor center. A maximum of 1,500 refugees were to be housed there, and buildings could then be removed from the reception facility to create favorable living space. "Those who continue to maintain a silent reserve for 3,400 refugees will have a credibility problem", says strong.
Nahles takes up the request and then listens to the concerns of young police officers, administrators and trainers (no permanent positions, temporary contracts). Because of the upcoming state parliamentary elections in october, she has previously dealt out a fair amount of blame to the CSU. The CSU, with its "shabby, defamatory policies aimed at the weakest," has been the "worst of the worst nahles says that the CSU has received the blame, referring to the latest polls (according to bayerischer rundfunk, the CSU was at 38 percent). It refers its criticism to the asylum policy and terms used by minister-president markus soder such as "asylum tourism". The SPD is trying to combine a realistic refugee policy that does not overburden municipalities with humanitarian principles. In bavaria, the CSU has now been in power for 70 years, and it is time for something different. Nahles must admit, of course, that even the SPD’s survey results (13 percent) cannot yet trigger a storm of jubilation.
The party leader was reminded of the long and eventful history of the SPD by a highly nutritious gift from her bamberg friends: before nahles set off on her journey, she was given 155 bottles of red beer from a brewery in the district for 155 years of SPD service.


Harrow, cultivator and roller

Within the framework of the "boden:standig" initiative in the project area of seblach, the coburg office for food, agriculture and forestry (AELF), the office for rural development of upper franconia (ALE) and BBV landsiedlung had invited to a joint field demonstration. Seven different tillage implements for cultivating an intercrop stand before corn sowing could be assessed in action on a trial field between dietersdorf and hattersdorf. The children were automatically entered into a raffle for a "pit lane ticket". The usual equipment of local farmers, such as cultivators, disc harrows and power harrows, was used, as well as equipment ordered exclusively to seblach: a machine equipped with loosening tines for strip tillage, a special power harrow with so-called samurai tines, and a cutter roller in combination with a flat cultivator. Plant cultivation advisor anton weig from AELF coburg presented the different devices and assessed the work result. The most important factors are maintaining the optimum cultivation depth, good mixing of the cultivated soil and complete mechanical control of the weeds present.

Food of the rain worm

Also very important is how much mulch material is left on the ground surface after tilling. The aim here is to achieve as high a degree of coverage as possible, so that in the event of heavy rainfall the arable land continues to be protected from erosion to the best possible extent. In addition, the plant residues remaining on the surface serve as food for earthworms.
In addition to the different techniques, the interested farmers present were also able to compare different varieties of intercrop mixtures that had already been used in the field as a show trial in the fall of 2017. Water consultant gesche petersen from the AELF coburg briefly presented the different intercrops that had been sown.
The intensive discussion once again showed that farmers are very interested in ways to improve soil and water conservation.
