New competence center against right-wing extremism

New competence center against right-wing extremism

"There must be no room in this country, in this society for right-wing extremism", said federal interior minister hans-peter friedrich (CSU) after a meeting with churches, associations and initiatives against the right in berlin. Family minister kristina schroder (CDU) announced a new, nationwide information and competence center to bundle knowledge about right-wing extremism. Hopes for more money for initiatives had already been dampened.

Friedrich and schroder had initiated the meeting together to set a sign against right-wing extremism. "Only if we all work together to actively promote our democracy and tolerance can we banish right-wing extremism from our society," said friedrich. The federal and state governments have an obligation to provide municipalities with all the help, support and encouragement they can in the fight against right-wing extremism. At the end of november, it became known that right-wing terrorists had been able to murder ten people without investigators having the perpetrators in their sights.

Scholz promises that there will be enough money for climate protection – even if the federal government has no plan as yet for exactly what it wants to spend it on.

New asphalt to help save money

The topic "road renovation also has great significance in the market town of wirsberg. A challenge, as mayor hermann anselstetter (SPD) explained during a press conference, that requires careful consideration from a technical point of view and is also very costly, especially since no subsidies are available from either the state or the federal government. The wirsberg market has therefore decided on a new rehabilitation method, the so-called "dark layer asphalt", which was applied for the first time on an 800 meter long section of the GV-strabe wirsberg – osserich/weibenbach.

First community in the county

Norbert specht from the administration made contact to try something that is not yet so widespread here in the region, but has been in other federal states for a long time. The market wirsberg will be the first municipality in the district of kulmbach to test this new procedure: "other municipalities have had very good experiences with it and we hope that it will save us from a rough rehabilitation inspection in one or the other decade and our market municipality council was also very keen to try the new procedure."
As the mayor explained, it is a new method that has not yet been used even by the county building department: "we hope that the considerable savings will also allow us to achieve durability. We will also observe this in the next few months." bituminous slurry was already being used at the end of the 1970s to seal open-pored asphalt surfaces. Paving was often carried out in one layer and with smaller grain sizes, and very good results were achieved with the sealers. The development of modern and economical laying machines as well as the use of new and improved construction materials make paving much more efficient today. This way, the construction method can be used on all construction classes and an extension of the service life is achieved and instead of an expensive renewal, the budgets of the municipalities and also the environment are spared.
With the "VSI-dunnschichtasphalt" can traffic surfaces be repaired quickly and cost-effectively?.

Theft in erlangen: stolen horse saddles are difficult to turn into money

When theft involves stolen goods in the five-digit range, thoughts probably turn first to expensive jewelry, cars or valuable rarities. Three manner from erlangen and bayreuth stood yesterday, however, before the district court erlangen, because they in a erlanger suburb 23 horse saddles and reitzubehor with a new value of about 63.000 euros had been stolen.

Jurgen lubojanski, the defense attorney for one of the three defendants, partially justified his 29-year-old client’s behavior. He had lost his job in the summer months before the burglary, but at the same time he had already started his studies and was therefore in financial difficulties. In conversations with the second defendant, a 38-year-old from erlangen, they first "talked abstractly about the possibilities of ‘making money,’" according to defense attorney lubojanski. The two manner, who knew each other from the correctional facility, then began to plan the theft. The fact that a riding stable became the target had two reasons, as lubojanski explained: such a stable is usually not well secured and at the same time contains valuable objects. "I already knew the approximate value of a saddle", the defendant also admitted.

Women shuffle the cards

Women who organize and host a prizeschafkopf are rather the exception. However, they are to be found in elfershausen, where in mid-january the schafkop tournament started in the parish hall, the proceeds of which were donated to charitable causes.
Naturally the ladies also like to play the traditional card game themselves. But the idea actually originated in the tuesday walking group, in which eight women and one man regularly walk for an hour around the town to stay fit.
A "schafkopf-knocking" game takes place every two weeks at home, where it "gets down to business". We play for money and in all the variations that this card game offers", informs sieglinde weiglmeier, who together with maria fox, johanna neeb and hiltrud jopp forms the women's card round and who together took the event organization in hand.
"Hiltrud jopp and her daughter jessica are passionate about schafkopf and have already taken part in several prize schafkopf tournaments. That was the basis for the idea to manage such an event in the parish hall, especially since hiltrud has the possibility to manage the preparations and the payment by computer", weiglmeier continues.
After several weeks of planning and searching for sponsors for the prizes, the organizing women were eagerly awaiting the number of participants. The walking group took over the catering in the parish hall, from which 300 euros have already flowed to the intended purpose. With 64 participants – many of them women – the organizers were a complete success.

Great echo

High quality prices, a cozy atmosphere and the harmonious atmosphere were echoed in requests for a repetition. The first prize, a two-day trip to berlin for two people, was won by alexander reinl. A day trip to the munich state parliament and a sum of money were won by the next two winners.
The proceeds of 700 euros and the income from the catering – a total of 1000 euros – were donated by the women'sschafkopf group to four selected institutions and associations. Headmistress gisela reuter accepted 300 euro each for the kindergarten elfershausen and mayor karlheinz kickuth for the friends of the trimburg for playground equipment. Albrecht haun received another 300 euros for the church administration, ursula bogner was pleased to receive 100 euros for the bookstore in the parish hall.
"This would not have been possible without the generous support of the sponsors – companies from elfershausen, hammelburg, the district and the city of bad kissingen", the quartet of ladies emphasized in unison at the small coffee and cake party that followed. The schafkopf friends are considering a repeat performance.

Dinner on new year’s eve: lentils in the soup pot

dinner on new year's eve: lentils in the soup pot

It does not always have to be carp. Sure, in all of us is genetically stored what our ancestors experienced in the stone age, what they hunted and what went into their cooking pots. It may be that adam gerollheimer once lost the scales of the carp he ate at the winter solstice in his cave. In the spring he met eva feuerstein. The two of them became a couple and made a covenant for life in the summer in front of the druid. When eva feuerstein-gerollheimer found the scales of a carp in the hollow in the rauhnachten of the following winter solstice, she resolutely swept out the remains of the meal. If she hadn't done that, the family would certainly have missed the fact that at that very moment a sable-toothed tiger was stalking towards them, which in turn had chosen the feuerstein-gerollheimers family as its new year's eve menu. We do not know, but it could have been so. From then on, the scales scattered in the cave were stylized as lucky charms, and a ritual was born.

In times of fast food, facebook and twitter, such customs have of course passed their zenith. The most ancient semesters still distribute the scales of new year's eve carp in the house and hope for luck for the whole year. Ts! It is rather conceivable that virtual sheds, so-called cookies, are distributed worldwide on the web and signal to the NSA: all clear, friends, everything is harmless on this PC, no reason to panic, there are no terrorists at work here ; ). The wimps read it with pleasure, are satisfied and never again burden the respective PC owner with the infiltration of curious trojans. This is the contemporary version of gluck.
