Burger initiative calls for traffic circle in sudwest

Burger initiative calls for traffic circle in sudwest

"As a car driver, i'm always afraid that a cyclist will push out of the graf-arnold-strabe", says a resident. Another said, "I don't send my kids across this intersection alone"." – "we can wait for it, that it cracks there once quite bose", someone still calls.

It is the evening when a newly founded burgers' initiative has invited people to meet at the klemens-fink-gehorlosensportcenter. From its parking lot, one can look directly at the stone of the anstobe – or more precisely, the intersection of the anstobe: where the babenbergerring, graf-arnold-strabe and wurzburger strabe meet. This area should be redesigned by the city of bamberg, if the citizens' initiative has its way.

Because the 50 or so listeners who came are concerned. You live in the new construction area and the surrounding area, you pass the intersection by car, bicycle or as a pedestrian.
It's not safe for any road user, they say. "With a stroller you can't fit on the small island in the middle of the lane", a resident complains "the parents are standing at the back of the street." A bicyclist reports angrily that she now yells at left-turning motorists when they take her right of way again.

u.s. and north korea plan historic summit meeting

The hostile USA and north korea want to talk about a solution to the nuclear conflict at a historic summit meeting.

The meeting between U.S. President donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un is expected to take place "by may". Trump was prepared to do so, the white house confirmed on thursday evening, according to sudkorean national security adviser chung eui yong.

The agreement on the date and place could drag on for weeks from the U.S. Perspective. "This is going to take a couple of weeks to work out," U.S. Secretary of state rex tillerson said during a visit to djibouti. There has been an increased number of contacts through newly opened voice channels lately, the aubenminister said. "What changed was, in a rather dramatic way, his attitude. And to be quite honest, it came as a bit of a surprise that kim jong un presented himself so forward-looking in his talks with the delegation from south korea," tillerson said.

Ikea wants to trade in used furniture

Ikea wants to trade in used furniture

The furniture store ikea has come forward with an unusual offer: from 1 january, it will be offering a new range of products in five german stores. September used furniture from our own assortment to be bought and immediately resold.

The german market leader announced. The test is initially limited to a few product groups and, according to the company, is intended to promote sustainability.

What the trade has so far left to a few social entrepreneurs with their second-hand department stores, is now to be the entry into the circular economy. But environmental activists and trade experts react skeptically.

Gatekeepers come and go

Gatekeepers come and go

Coach martin lang assesses the season so far in terms of conduct. Sulzfeld's trainer sees fourth place as incidental. "I don't base my evaluation so much on the table results, they come up automatically. I am much more interested in the points achieved", says the 40-year-old "but given our possibilities, we have to be satisfied with what we have achieved." In figures: 29 points from 17 games. This results in an average of 1.7 points per game.
"The width of the squad is quite dark", lang names the main problem area for the maustal team "this is best illustrated by the position of the goalkeeper. We had to play the half-series with five goalkeepers. There were several reasons for the constant changes in the position, such as injuries, suspensions or occupation. At the same time, this says a lot about the fact that we lacked consistency in personnel." The most experienced torhuter marcus orth passed his second state examination in bad kissingen last semester. "He wanted to focus on it to finish the exams as well as possible. That's why he missed many training sessions and, as we agreed before the season, preferred the younger players to take the lead", reports lang.
At the beginning of the season, simon bruckner, who was drawn from our own youth team, stood between the posts. "He started very well in the first games, but unfortunately got injured before the game in mainstockheim, which meant that he was out for the rest of the preliminary round." Then peter ptok, who had transferred from repperndorf, stood in goal, but received a red card after just a few minutes in the 2:2 draw in karlstadt. Afterwards, he also dropped out, so michael damke, goalkeeper of the second team, had to help out for one game and also orth had to step in again at short notice.
The sulzfeld team often decimated itself – the maustalers conceded a total of ten sending-offs during the season. When all four of the previous goalkeepers dropped out, thorsten wahner finally took over the aluminium bars at the 2:5 in monchberg. "Thankfully, he made himself available when all the strings broke and no one else was available."

Best game against rottendorf

Lang names the best game as the 2:1 at home against rottendorf, irrespective of the result. "We showed our best performance. The opponent came to us as the leader of the table, but apart from a few exceptions we hardly gave him any opportunities to develop", the coach looks back on that encounter and draws a lesson for the rest of the season: "you could see what the team is capable of when everyone pulls together and sticks to the given guidelines. Everyone must be prepared to put their performance at the service of the team. We have to work on that, because only then can we play successful soccer together."

Spd candidate focuses on employee issues

Martina stamm-fibich, 47, was born in erlangen, is an exempt works council member at siemens helathcare and the mother of two children aged 13 and 17. Renate schmidt even thinks she could become a minister. After the SPD nomination meeting last friday in buckenhof, she took time out for a few questions.

FT: you are now the candidate for the constituency of erlangen and elangen-hochstadt. Did they expect such a good result?
Martina stamm-fibich: i hoped it would be a clear result. That it has now come so well, I am extraordinarily pleased. A crude vote of confidence by the party.

When does the election campaign begin for you??
Today. But first i have to say that i don’t use the word "campaign" for herzogenaurach actually find grasslich. That sounds too aggressive and disparaging to me. I find "preparations for the federal election" is more aptly. I have already made the experience the last time in 2009. As an elected candidate, this is of course a completely different focus from yesterday. After all, we want to win the constituency next year. I think it will really start after the summer.

Politicians of all persuasions and from all directions praised the achievements of the "iron lady," but there was also criticism of the political figurehead. Downing street announced a mourning ceremony for the conservative politician with military honors in london st. Paul’s cathedral to. At the request of thatcher, her body will not be laid out there.

Thatcher was prime minister of great britain from 1979 to 1990. She made a name for herself primarily through the falklands war against argentina and her role within the european community of the time. The – abbreviated – quote "i want my money back" with which she pushed through the so-called "british rebate" became legendary. After her departure from downing street, she was elevated to the peerage and entered the house of lords. "She loved her country and served it in a remarkable way," prime minister david cameron said.

Governments around the world and british politicians of all parties hailed thatcher as a great politician of her time and a "towering figure.". German chancellor angela merkel (CDU) called the first woman to head a european government "one of the outstanding leaders of world politics of her time".
