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.

All kinds of spabe at the kirchweih parade in vestenbergsgreuth

A tractor without gasoline, a fire department that can’t print out because of a power outage, and a local man who has torn his ligaments again – while intoxicated. These are all the stories of a whole year, which the young bachelors’ association told on sunday afternoon during their traditional kerwas parade.

"We keep track of everything that happens over the course of the year", explained chairman lukas brandt. In august, the ideas are collected and filtered, because out of all the messes that have happened in the past year, only the best really make it onto a trailer. This year the numerous spectators were allowed to look at a total of five of them.

The story of the band rupture

So it was about a vestenbergsgreuther, who almost regularly rubs his bander in a frenzy. The man was given a carriage with a sickbed by the young journeymen’s club, on which it was written: "that i like to drink a schnapps is well known, but the hamwech didn’t go so gallantly. The road is suddenly out on the other side, it’s knocking the bander out".

At the rally under the slogan "hof is colorful and not brown", the CSU politician said: "democracy in germany is alive and we will not let it be destroyed by extremists and racists."Friedrich thanked the burghers for setting a sign: "the speechlessness of the democrats is the grossest enemy of democracy."

At the neo-nazi action in neumunster, right-wing extremists unfurled transparencies, which for the police was a violation of the official regulations.

survey: adults have confidence in next generation

A representative forsa survey conducted for the german children’s aid organization on the occasion of world children’s day this friday found that 69 percent of adults believe the younger generation can take responsibility for maintaining democracy in germany. In the last survey in 2016, the figure was five percent lower. According to the survey, young adults and people over 60 have particularly little confidence in today’s children and young people.

In the west, the belief in the democratic ability of the next generation is greater than in the east; it is greatest among supporters of the greens (86 percent) and lowest among supporters of the left and the afd (61 percent each). According to the vast majority (88 percent), the main responsibility for democratic education lies with the parents, ahead of school (69 percent).

Despite the increased confidence in the democratic ability of children and young people, the children’s aid organization appealed to parties, parliaments, governments and administrations to open up even more to young generations and to "create formats of co-determination and representation. "Democracy does not fall from the sky, but has to be learned anew by every generation. We still have to face up to this task for society as a whole," said the president of the german children’s fund, thomas kruger, according to a press release.
