Ramadan poses problems for klopp: salah powerless?

Ramadan poses problems for klopp: salah powerless?

As if the task against the star ensemble of real madrid was not difficult enough, jurgen klopp has to deal with problems of a special kind before the champions league final.

The duel with the royals on saturday (20.45 a.M. CEST) falls in the middle of the fasting month of ramadan, and two of liverpool FC’s key players are devout muslims: top goalkeeper mohamed salah and his congenial strike partner sadio mane. Together with brazilian roberto firmino, they form the most prolific attack in champions league history.

It would have been fatal if the reds’ goal machine – the trio scored 29 goals on their way to the final – had been powerless against real. Because during ramadan, muslims are not allowed to eat or drink from sunrise to sunset. Until the 14. June, the day of the world cup opening match, the fasting period still continues.

Everything as usual in the church

Everything as usual in the church

It was probably the immediate effects of the abuse scandal in the catholic church that caused the german bishops to show remorse in a first shock reaction. Not only remorse, there should even be a comprehensive reappraisal of the scandal. Under the pressure of public opinion and numerous church resignations, it was necessary to act quickly to regain lost credibility and limit the damage as much as possible. That was in the summer of 2011. In the meantime, one and a half years have passed, and some bishops have obviously changed their minds. You may have internalized the dangers of giving an independent scientific body access to all personnel files from the past ten years. In the first rush, nine bishops even wanted to trace the investigation back to 1945. Yes for heaven’s sake!

If anything is surprising, it is the fact that it took so long for some bishops to become afraid of their own courage and to retreat. Especially in munich, you have to know what an independent investigation can mean. In the local archdiocese, a jurist had taken a closer look at the personnel files. As a result, they identified nine times more abuse traps than were known to the abuse commissioner of the bishopric. Apparently not all diocesan leaders want to take such a risk anymore.

The accusation made in this context by the criminological research institute of lower saxony that there is evidence of the destruction of files fits into the picture. So it’s business as usual in the catholic church. Possible perpetrators are protected, the victims are told to submit to their fate.
A dangerous thought. The pope agrees.

Zverev fit for australian open – kerber confident

Zverev fit for australian open - kerber confident

Alexander zverev has coped well with the scare before the australian open and sees no problems for his opening match at the first tennis highlight of the year. "The fub hurts a little. It’s like a bruise on the bone," said zverev in melbourne.

Two days earlier, he had twisted his ankle in training and suffered a swelling. "It takes time. I’m not too worried about it," the unofficial world champion added calmly. Zverev will play his first-round match against slovenian aljaz bedene on tuesday with a tape. Even his thigh, which was still sore at the beginning of the week, no longer causes the world number four any concern. On saturday, zverev practiced for two hours with spanish player fernando verdasco after what he said was a planned break from training.

Regardless of his fitness, the 21-year-old from hamburg stressed that he does not see himself as a favorite for the first grand slam tournament in the new year. Zverev named swiss defending champion roger federer, serbian world number one novak djokovic and rafael nadal. The spaniard, who has been out of action since the US open due to injury, says he is recovering well from a bone operation and recent thigh problems.

Cyclists soon have to fear higher bubble money

cyclists soon have to fear higher bubble money

Dangerous traffic violations will soon be more expensive for cyclists on german roads. At the request of the states, bub fines for many offenses are to be increased by five to ten euros, the federal ministry of transport announced in berlin on wednesday. The goal is more safety for all road users. Therefore, in the future, car drivers who do not show consideration for cyclists will also be asked to pay more. The new regulations are expected to take effect on 1. April come into force.

Federal and state governments had observed that the interaction between cyclists and motorists was deteriorating, said a spokesman for federal transport minister peter ramsauer (CSU). With some offences the threshold of the money-robbers was so small that they were committed again and again. This friday, the federal council is expected to pass a resolution to tighten up the law, which the federal government will then implement.

Specifically, it is planned that cyclists will be charged 20 to 35 euros for making the wrong turn into one-way streets, depending on the situation, instead of the current 15 to 30 euros, according to the "bild" newspaper-newspaper (wednesday) reports. Anyone not riding on the bike lane or riding on it in the wrong direction is to pay 20 euros instead of 15 euros in the future. Riding without lights will soon cost cyclists 20 instead of 10 euros.

Customers shy away from switching banks

Customers shy away from switching banks

Fees for checking accounts, debit cards, paper transfers or small withdrawals – in view of the low interest rates, many banks have asked their customers to pay more.

Nevertheless, many consumers are reluctant to switch banks. This is shown by a survey of more than 2,000 bank customers conducted by the management consultancy oliver wyman. However, consumers are increasingly using second banks for consumer loans or construction financing.

The proportion of customers who changed banks within a year has averaged only one to two percent over the past 30 years, says the paper, which is available to the deutsche presse-agentur. In the past five years, this figure has risen significantly to three percent – still a low level. "The traditional financial institutions such as savings banks, volks- and raiffeisenbank, and other branch banks still hold the dominant position in the role of house bank," explained study author tobias dziggel.

City council discusses change of leadership at staatsbad gmbh

City council discusses change of leadership at staatsbad gmbh

The press release from the town hall came without warning, although perhaps not entirely surprisingly. And it contained only two sentences: "the city council of the city of bad kissingen will meet on 12. December in the non-public part with the question whether there should be a change at the top of the bayerische staatsbad bad kissingen gmbh." And: "the public will be informed promptly of the outcome of these deliberations."

Only one person can be meant by the head of the staatsbad gmbh: spa director gunter sauer. There is nothing more in the dark air of leadership, because a deputy for him has never been hired. He himself had come to bad kissingen in 2004, where he took over as deputy to the then spa director annette kratz. When she left office two years later, he took over – with an unlimited contract.

He had already known about this planned debate in the city council, sauer said when asked: "I don’t want to say any more about it at the moment." And thus nothing to the question whether this announcement has surprised him. The preliminary information was confirmed by the city’s legal advisor joachim kohn: "the state baths company, aware of the city council’s involvement with this issue, is keeping a low profile."

Grobmeisterin to guest in lichtenfels

If this is not a treat for the friends of the royal game: next saturday the best german chess player for about 15 years, elisabeth pahtz, will be guest at the SV seubelsdorf for a simultaneous event on 30 boards.

For its 90th anniversary this year, the chess club from the lichtenfels district wanted to set a sporting accent. At the meranier-gymnasium lichtenfels everything will revolve around the 32 figures on the 64 fields from 1 p.M. Onwards.

Game review in advance

"First of all elisabeth pahtz will give a one hour presentation of a current game", says the second chairman of the SVS, kilian mager, who has made all the preparations with his team. "We probably don't promise too much when we predict that you will certainly get remarkable insights into the psychology of chess in general, the thought processes of a women's grandmaster in particular as well as into many other aspects of our board game which otherwise often remain hidden."

Slaughterhouse fire: verdict based on “puzzle

Update: the defendant has since appealed against this verdict. He was elected on 7.5.Acquitted in second instance in 2018. Since his presence at the scene of the crime at the time in question could be refuted, both prosecutor and defense counsel pleaded for an acquittal.

For two years and eight months, a 63-year-old pensioner is behind bars for allegedly setting fire to the slaughterhouse in bamberg in december 2016. The fire caused more than 300,000 euros in property damage. The former employee werner L. (name changed) had acted in panic and destroyed incriminating documents in order to “retire without a blemish” so the verdict.
It had taken two days of trial, extensive evidence gathering and two dozen witnesses to forge a chain of evidence that had become tighter and tighter around the defendant’s neck. Because clear evidence, as prosecutor daniel heppt openly admitted, did not exist.

Other suspects

For neither had werner L. Caught in the act while tindering in the administrative building of the slaughterhouse, nor found during a house search burglary tools or spray cans with slogans like “tonnies out” on the inside and “morder” had been sprayed on walls and doors. Lawyer jochen kaller (bamberg) had tried in vain to bring other suspects, such as a former head butcher, other cashier employees or animal protection activists into play.

Burgers criticize the kindergarten container

burgers criticize the kindergarten container

New burgers’ reception, the mayor’s report, the honoring of deserving burgers and, finally, questions from the 200 or so visitors: the burgers’ meeting in the marktstetten sports hall on thursday evening lasted almost four hours and still had a lot to offer.

There was criticism of mayor thomas reichert and the city council members for the state of the kindergarten. The mayor had already mentioned this in his report, explaining that when the expansion of the kindergarten was completed in 2015, the space there had already become too small, and so containers were set up in 2016 as a temporary solution, and at the same time a new expansion plan was started. The problem, however, was that there was not enough space on the site and the elementary school next to it was to be renovated and included in the planning. Not an easy task, since various authorities had to be involved in the process due to the grants. But reichert also admitted that it would have been possible to act a little faster. In the coming days, however, there is an appointment with the government of lower franconia, which he wants to use together with employees of the administrative community, a city councilor and pastor peter stier as chairman of the sponsors’ association, in order to move forward in the process.

Despite these statements, there were a number of objections from parents, employees and even burghers, who spoke massively against the container solution. There was talk of a "shithole, of "unreasonable demand, of "musty smell" the speech and also stier appealed to mayor and council, kindergarten and school "absolute priority" to give. Reichert promised to keep the kindergarten staff in particular better informed about further developments.
