These election posters are out of place

On wednesday, landrat reinhardt glauber (freie wahler) was quoted to the government of upper franconia. The reason: in the district of forchheim, there is a lack of legal compliance with regard to billboard advertising in the run-up to the municipal elections on 16 march. Marz no "legally compliant conditions". The bavarian ministry of the interior had already decreed in february 2013 that this type of billboard should not be erected outside built-up areas in order not to endanger traffic safety. Saying: advertising beyond the local signs is not allowed.

Glauber reports that he has asked the local parties to turn a blind eye in the current case and to enforce compliance with the regulation only at the next election. But in vain. The government had insisted on the removal of the posters in the area, after all, the district of forchheim was the only one in upper franconia where the parties did not adhere to this regulation.

Glauber reacted promptly on thursday and wrote to the municipalities. They now have to make sure that the "disputed advertising installations are removed by tuesday at the latest" are removed.

Did not want to make empty promises

"Volkhardt warmdt accuses me of not having voted in favor of an SPD motion on financial support for animal shelters during a vote in the bavarian state parliament. Yes, that is true. And that’s because until now a demand of animal shelters by the bavarian state government was not foreseen and i just didn’t want to make empty promises."With this statement, the CSU member of the state parliament otto hunnerkopf is reacting to a statement in a reader’s letter that appeared in this issue on friday. He goes on to explain that the financing of the animal shelters was the responsibility of the municipalities, because found animals were taken in and cared for. Since animals from illegal transports had to be taken in over the past few years, a discussion had begun in the CSU state parliamentary group to also demand animal shelters by the state. This led to the bavarian state government, in a cabinet meeting on 18. September 2018 decided to require animal shelters in the future under certain conditions. With this decision in his pocket, he visited the animal shelter in kitzingen with state parliament candidate barbara becker to inform those responsible and to promise support, hunnerkopf said.

Fossil finds fill million-year gap

Fossil finds fill million-year gap

The fossil-poor period between 365 and 359 million years ago is known as the "romer hiatus" and originally spanned as much as 30 million years, british researchers write in the "proceedings" of the u.S. Academy of science (PNAS).

According to the report, the fossils now dated offer important information about the evolution of the first terrestrial vertebrates. And they showed that the gap was due to a lack of finds – and not to a lack of animals at that time.

The team of jennifer clack from the university of south hampton reports on animal remains found at several sites in the south of scotland, representing both marine and terrestrial life. With them the gap between mainly aquatic tetrapods of the devonian with many primitive features and later, terrestrial tetrapods with features of modern quadrupedal animals can be filled.
