Catherine the soft-spinner

Catherine the soft-spinner

My prelude to the wagner year: what I hadn't already worked out in my head! But if the current news situation demands it, everything else has to take a back seat. But that is not a bad thing. It's not every day that I can, may or have to react to a rough occasion – especially not an exclusive interview with katharina wagner.

In the new year's eve edition of the nurnberger zeitung, the wagner great-granddaughter with the highest profile in the world was the only one who was allowed to spread out on two printed pages, along with nine other celebrities. According to its own figures, the NZ has a circulation of not even 30,000 copies, so it can by no means compete with the journalistic weight of the much coarser daily newspaper from the same publishing house. However, the bayreuth expert was not exactly enthusiastic about the awarding of the eon culture prize to the festival directors only recently.

Perhaps, the unsuspecting reader may think, katharina wagner simply found herself appropriately well-placed with her NZ double-page spread alongside the one-sidedly presented other spokespeople such as harald gloockler, maja prinzessin von hohenzollern, daniela schad and theo waigel. But of course this is only half the truth. Because she could rely on at least one news agency to jump on it and make sure it was distributed nationwide.

Regional league all saints

MONDAY
nothing is the way it used to be since the fubball association believes it has to move with the times. Let’s just take the draw. This is not a new invention of the fubball officials, but a well-known result, when each team scores the same number of goals or – in case of a 0:0 – the same number of goals. Earlier one could even speak of a division of points. In the age of the threesome, which has been rewarded for a victory in the bundesliga since the 1995/96 season, things are getting more difficult. When there were two payers for a win, everything was clear in the event of a draw: one for each. And now? One and a half? God forbid. We journalists are the ones who have the problem in the first place. We have to rethink. There is no real division of points in fubball anymore.

TUESDAY

When models stroll down the runway at the fashion fairs in milan or paris, they are illuminated by dozens of spotlights. After all, they and the clothes they present should appear in the best possible light. When women’s soccer players have to or want to play their top game in the upper district league under more or less dim conditions, it is obvious that there is not much worth seeing – purely from a sporting point of view? My ass! From a sporting point of view, the upper district league also seems to be just a stopover for the women’s soccer team from dettelbach and its suburbs. After the preliminary round, the record of the promoted team is impressive: nine victories, 40:4 goals. The star shines brightly, brighter anyway than the floodlight.

Kerber’s wimbledon return: “female how to play on grass”

Kerber's wimbledon return: 'female how to play on grass'

This return to wimbledon is very special for angelique kerber. When she stepped onto the tradition-steeped tennis court for the first time after her triumph a year ago and saw a picture of herself as last year’s winner, all the memories resurfaced.

"It was definitely beautiful emotions," the 31-year-old from keel said about her first impressions. With a badge on her t-shirt that now marks her as a member of the all england lawn tennis and croquet club, the world number five spoke with a smile but also with confidence about the upcoming title defense: "i know how to play on grass. It’s a bit different from playing on sand, where i have no idea how to play on it. I was able to absorb this feeling."

With the experience of 2018 and in the aubergewohnlichen wimbledon flair she wants to defy the difficult draw after the changeable past months and pave a way to the title again. "You feel a completely different energy here," said the co-favorite: "i’m trying to keep playing the way i played last year."

Erdogan opens new embassy in berlin

Erdogan opens new embassy in berlin

Turkish prime minister recep tayyip erdogan called for more integration efforts at the opening of his country’s new embassy in berlin. "We want the turks in germany to speak german with love," erdogan said on tuesday evening. "In this sense, they must be dual language learners and participate more and more in life."At the same time, erdogan offered his country’s help in the eu financial crisis.

More than 1,400 guests attended the ceremony, including guido westerwelle (FDP), the minister of economics. After almost 70 years, turkey is once again represented in the capital’s historic embassy district. However, german-turkish relations are not free of tensions at present.

According to the redemanuscript, westerwelle spoke out in his grubwort for further rapprochement between turkey and the european union (eu). The stalemate in the accession negotiations for the last two years is not good for either side. A "new beginning" is to be made here in the coming year. Turkey has implemented many reforms. "Much remains to be done, but important stages have been completed," said westerwelle.

Genetic testing of embryos without any intervention at all

Genetic testing of embryos without any intervention at all

They see this as a step toward testing for thousands of diseases caused by alterations in a single gene – without endangering the child through invasive methods such as amniocentesis in the womb. The team from the university of washington in seattle presents the results in the journal "science translational medicine.

"This is a thunderclap and fundamentally changes the perspective on prenatal testing," said human geneticist and medical ethicist prof. Wolfram henn from the university of saarland told the german press agency dpa. According to the article, there are more than 3,000 disorders caused by the alteration of a single gene. Taken individually, they are rare, but in total they affect about one percent of all newborns. Cystic fibrosis, for example, is one of the most serious diseases.

It is now up to policymakers to address the ethical issues surrounding this technical possibility, henn said. The publication had been expected in the professional world. "From a technological point of view, it is the holy grail of genome analysis, but from an ethical point of view, it is very problematic to reveal to parents the complete genome of their child before birth."

Rodentalers prove their drive

At the district olympics, spittelstein, rothenhof, blumenrod, einberg, kipfendorf, waldsachsen, unterwohlsbach and monchroden competed against each other in five disciplines to prove that their district was the best district in rodental. For rothenhof, it was all about defending the title – but that didn’t turn out to be too easy. For blumenrod, none other than mayor marco steiner () started as a team member and the other teams were also eager to take the title from rothenhof.

The competition called for ingenuity, strength, skill, and team cohesion. The beginning seemed quite harmless: a quiz asked the participants how much they knew about politics, history, germany and their city of rodental, and how good their general knowledge was. Questions like "who was ruth stocke?", "what was the lowest temperature ever measured in germany??" Or "what is the most expensive city in the world??" Might have made many a team sweat.

Strength and strategy

After that, strength and strategy were in the foreground. As many beer crates as possible had to be carried by the four team members. The conditions: the beer boxes had to touch each other and no aids could be used. How these stacks of beer crates were lifted was up to the teams – as long as the crates did not touch the ground. And so each of the teams worked out its own strategy: the kipfendorfers lay down on the floor and piled the crates on top of themselves. So they managed to make a good start with 26 crates of beer. Einberg tried a long row of beer crates, with two of the team members pressing the rough ends of the row against each other and a third in the middle, while the fourth handed over the crates. With this technique and the help of their last reserves of strength, the einberger team managed to carry 23 crates.

Exploit frohnlach’s weak phase

Exploit Frohnlach's weak phase

It was an intense district derby that ASV kleintettau and FC mitwitz played in the western district league last weekend: the 150 spectators saw three sending-offs and two penalties, and the steinachtaler won 3:2 on aggregate. So the promoted team from kleintettau once again came away empty-handed and will meet on sunday at 14.30 o’clock in the basement duel against FC oberhaid, which is two ranges and 14 points ahead of the last team in the table.

Two places also separate the FC mitwitz (4. Place/28 points) and the vfl frohnlach (2./37) who compete on saturday at 14 o’clock. With a win, FCM, which has been unbeaten for eight games, could even close the gap on the league favorites to within six points. FC mitwitz – vfl frohnlach this one shows after his brilliant start of the season now weak. For three games, the frohnlacher are already without three, muhten last friday to a 1:1 at home against don bosco bamberg and conceded the week before a harsh 0:4 clap in the derby at the promoted sylvia ebersdorf. Accordingly, the mitwitz coach johannes muller is confident in the game: "other teams have already shown that frohnlach is also not a total ubermannschaft. We want to do better than we did in the first leg, which we lost 1:5 and frohnlach also lost a little bit on their own ground." His opponent bastian renk wanted to avoid this at all costs: "the last three games were anything but good on our part. Mitwitz is a very home-strong team, that will not be easy. But we have to get three points again, because schammelsdorf will not let go." FC mitwitz: winterstein, braunerreuther – schmidt, riedel, st. Muller, angel, hofmann, froba, C. Muller, maurer, gentzsch, langbein, wrycziel, buttner, fohrweiser – missing: jo. Muller (injured), C. Muller, kleylein (both suspended) / vfl frohnlach: pfister – rebhan, simitci, E. Sener, weinreich, renk, pflaum, friedlein, teuchert, lauerbach, hartmann, E. Ozdemir, oppel, T. Ozdemir, aydin, graf – missing: rodel, beetz, jauch (all injured). FC oberhaid – ASV kleintettau

Once again it had for the ASV kleintettau (18./3) did not look bad in the match against FC mitwitz in the beginning, although the team of trainer marco D’antimi had to run after a 0:1 deficit early on. "After a few minutes we were able to get a good grip on the game after the setback. Consequently, we have achieved the equalizer and could well have led before the break by the missed penalty and two very good chances", says the coach.

God’s blessing on vehicle and defense

Especially in the smaller towns in the district, the official commissioning and blessing of a new fire truck is not an everyday event. In friesen, the new portable fire engine replaces the more than 30 year old vorganger model, which is currently still stationed at the fire department in erlach. The blessing of the vehicle was celebrated with a parade of flags of the entire fire departments of hirschaid and the local associations of friesen, a festive church service and a cosy get-together.

Professor alfred hierold praised the achievements of the friesen fire department in his sermon and thanked everyone for their voluntary work for the good of the general public. The new vehicle is therefore "not a new toy", but rather an important contribution to public safety and order. He concluded by asking for god's blessing on the new portable fire engine.

Christian buttel, second in command of the fire department, reminded the audience of the importance of investing in modern technology, as it is "an investment in the future" were. However, they are purposeless and pointless, without the dedicated women, men and young people of the fire department.

Millions as farewell for former blackberry boss

Millions as farewell for former blackberry boss

The longtime top executive received $4.8 million in addition to a base salary of just over $1 million and a stock bonus when he left the top job in january, according to RIM documents for the shareholder meeting.

In total, the company put balsillie’s income in the fiscal year that ended in february at just under eight million dollars. In addition, when he left the board of directors in march, options were prematurely converted into shares, the value of which was estimated at 3.1 million dollars at the price at that time.

Balsillie’s colleague mike lazaridis, who stepped down as co-chief executive at the same time, received an additional payment of over 862,000 dollars as a farewell to the company’s top management. But unlike balsillie, lazaridis remained a member of the board of directors. RIM put its total revenues for the year at around four million dollars. In addition, he will also have a 3.1 million dollar option package converted into shares as soon as he leaves the board of directors.

Mountain rescue has its own emergency doctor

Mountain rescue has its own emergency doctor

Kronach- a skier who has had an accident off-piste, a mushroom picker who has had a heart attack, or a woodcutter who is seriously injured while working in the forest – in order to be able to help quickly and competently in these and many other acute emergencies in difficult-to-access terrain, future mountain rescue emergency doctors undergo comprehensive additional training, starting with climbing and skiing and extending to air rescue and training in high medicine. Hubertus franz, an emergency physician with the BRK-kreisverband kronach, also completed such a two-year training course. With him, the rennsteig mountain rescue team, founded in november 2015, now has its own mountain rescue emergency physician for the first time.

"That was quite a challenge", hubertus franz, who, together with around a dozen other doctors, underwent this highly demanding training at the bavarian mountain rescue service, is one of them. The summer was about climbing, safety techniques and moving in difficult terrain. In winter, skiing, ski touring and avalanche awareness in the high mountains – in this case garmisch-partenkirchen – were the focus of attention. "Everything is done under real conditions. For air rescue, for example, we went to the mountain rescue center (ZSA/zentrum fur sicherheit und ausbildung) in bad tolz and trained there with a helicopter simulator", the emergency doctor reports on a cable car set up there and a replica helicopter hovering on the ceiling to simulate, for example, the rescue of a heart attack patient in a gondola.

Fitness is a must

The training also includes a physical fitness test, so fitness is an absolute must. "I am proud that I managed to do all this. This is a great confirmation for me; after all, I am not the youngest anymore", smiles the 58-year-old, for whom being an emergency physician has always been his dream job.
