Professionals in renewable raw materials

The topic "bioconomy is the motto of the science year 2020. It is about the transformation from a market economy based on oil to an economy based on renewable raw materials. Coal phase-out, climate change and scarce resources show that products based on petroleum are a discontinued model. But it is not easy to replace it. You read about tires made from lowen tooth milk and dubels made from castor oil. That sounds creative at first. But do such products have the properties they should have?? Is their production economical? Or is the mass production of such products not even the source of new problems?? Will we all be vegetarians in the future or will we eat insects and meat from test tubes?? Franziska assmann, isabell bernhart, jazlin devore, and chantal-sophie genzler, four tenth-graders at frobenius gymnasium in hammelburg, germany, were extremely successful in answering questions like these at the DECHEMAX competition. The competition, which is held throughout germany, is an initiative of DECHEMA gesellschaft fur chemische technik und biotechnologie e.V. Rough commitment, an even rougher thirst for knowledge and a lot of stamina were required to successfully complete the questions and experimental tasks in the two rounds of the competition.

Question of the week

From november 2019 to the end of january 2020, a new "question of the week" was posted every thursday on the DECHEMAX website around the competition theme. "This year there was a bonus question because the competition is celebrating its 20th anniversary", notes supervising teacher christine kreb. "The young researchers from the frobenius grammar school had until the following wednesday to find the answer." The team managed to answer the nine "questions of the week" to answer correctly and to the point. For example, the materials needed to build an environmentally friendly house or the negative consequences of meat consumption for the environment had to be discussed. It was investigated how soil fertility can be preserved or how washing and bleaching with biotechnology is possible and much more.

Paper recycling

The second round was an experimental round. "Paper recycling was the topic of the frame, and it started right away with a frame: a scooping frame had to be built in order to scoop paper from a pulp of newsprint paper. From beet, carrots and carrot grun, the schoolgirls boiled colored brew with which to dye the paper. But not only that, the team also enjoyed experimenting: "we particularly liked the fact that, in addition to normal paper production, we also tried out napkins, flour and flower petals", reports chantal-sophie genzler.

Auxiliary caregiver sentenced to life in prison for murder

Auxiliary caregiver sentenced to life in prison for murder

Grzegorz W. No expression when the court announces the verdict: life imprisonment for three counts of murder, special aggravation of guilt, preventive detention. Maximum sentence.

The small, heavy man accepts all this completely motionless – as uninvolved as he seemed throughout the entire trial. As if it were none of his business. The court finds that he is what the prosecution has called him: a serial killer who may have even more people on his conscience than the three he has now been convicted of murdering.

"Everyone knows from their own painful experience how painful it is to lose a loved one," says presiding judge elisabeth ehrl. In the murder cases, the mourners also found that their loved ones had "not fallen asleep peacefully" but had been killed. The deeds had led to "considerable cuts in the lives of the people involved", who were now asking themselves many questions: "how could something like this happen?? Had I been able to prevent something?"

Burghers criticize bickering in the council

Forchheim construction cranes dominate the city sky. Tens of millions of euros are being invested in the south, space is becoming tight and scarce, urban development is breathtaking, sometimes scary. This is how manfred mauser and paul nerb, the city councilors from the forchheim citizens’ forum (FBF), describe the feeling of life in the city.

In order to understand how the citizens see their own future under these circumstances, the burgerforum initiated a survey. It was under the heading "quo vadis forchheim?"

100 citizens were confronted with a questionnaire. The interviews were conducted by the FBF activists in the fubganger zone. 17 questions had to be answered. For example: do you want more houses and apartments to be built, or is the need already met?? Should more business and industry be attracted to the area? Support the rough projects rathausanierung, conversion of the kolpinghaus or redesign of the paradeplatz?

How the volleys cope with the wolf departures

How the volleys cope with the wolf departures

The shock could not have been deeper: after losing the derby against eltmann, captain peter wolf and his brother georg announced to the hammelburg volleys via whatsapp that they were quitting their cooperation. Now the match against blue volleys gotha (saturday, 8pm) is coming up. And head of department matthias benner talks in an interview about human exchanges, the consequences of wolf’s farewell and an extremely important bundesliga match. Mr. Benner, the announcement of the wolf brother was spectacular, via whatsapp message. Where are they now? Matthias benner: we don’t know. Probably they are pushing their teaching studies in frankfurt. The announcement was a shock, wasn’t it??Honestly, I had expected more maturity, team spirit and a personal conversation. This is not the way young adult men who are about to finish their teaching degree treat others. This has nothing to do with team solidarity and team sports. Especially as team captain. This position peter wanted with all his might. The club was worth the announcement only a short message. Although the captain goes.We have deliberately kept a low profile in terms of media and publicity. We don’t know what the reason for the resignation was.

But hand on heart: can’t you imagine why the wolf brothers left??The real reason is probably that little wolf (georg, d.R.) has played too little this season. In addition, peter wolf was recently not allowed to play the diagonal position on the far right that he wanted. The wolf brothers have missed a lot of the preparation because of the beach volleyball season. In this one, it turned out that the game works very well with oscar benner as diagonal attacker – which is peter wolf’s favorite position. The idea of the coach was to put wolf as a blocker against the strongest player of the opponent. He was obviously unhappy with that. Now the announcement is effective. Or does the club see it differently?The wolf brothers still have a contract with us until the end of the season, so until 30. April 2019. A notice in the practiced form is not entitled to them at all. Such a thing would only be possible in special cases, for example if the club went insolvent. The contracts are valid and provide for contractual penalties and claims for damages if they are not fulfilled. Even if we still move in the amateur area. But so far the club has not made use of it. That is, the wolf brothers can not simply play for another club?If the club management agreed, they could transfer, which would entail a three-month suspension. But there is no willingness to do so and there is no request from the players or from another club. How did the team react to the departure?? Printed mood prevails?The mood in the team is actually solved, also because the constant quarrels have stopped. The players got together when the resignation of wolfe was announced. They have no understanding for it, have seen it as a selfish move. Now let’s be specific: who will replace the wolf-bruder in the game?Georg wolf had this season anyway only sporadic einsatze. On this position is moritz rauber set. The departure of peter wolf actually creates a problem for us, both diagonally and on the left wing. With moritz zeitler and felix bendikowski we have possibilities to replace peter wolf adequately. Nevertheless, a clear monitoring can not be explained away.This is not so much due to the quality of the team, but rather to the breadth of the squad. There should already be twelve to fourteen players of equal caliber in training. We have added the brothers lukas and david baden. They have always been part of the training sessions; now they are a permanent part of the team. They always do better. Even if it is currently not enough for a regular place in the second bundesliga. There are many who say that the relegation of the wolf brothers from the second division is as good as sealed.I do not see it that way. Yes, the wolves, especially peter, are a strength for every second league team when they are fit. And yes, it will be a difficult task to keep the class, also because of the good promoted mimmenhausen and gotha. But we believe that the team is intact, perhaps more than before the departure of the brothers. We had to bring the preparation also without the two behind us and had good successes. The rest of the squad remains good enough for the second league. But I expect a reaction against gotha. Have you considered bringing in replacements for the wolf brothers from outside the team??We are not actively looking for reinforcement at the moment. Until christmas we want to try it in any case with the current squad. If things don’t go well in the meantime, or if two of our regular players are seriously injured, we will have to react and spend money. But once again, i have every confidence that our current team can hold its own in the league.

Do they see karl kaden as a coach after the quarrels tarnished?No, not even in the team. The department management stands behind the coach and his decisions. I believe we have acted correctly. By the way, karl was even willing to give peter wolf back his favorite position and put oscar benner back in the middle blocker position. The brothers have destroyed this approach with their decision. How did the environment, especially the sponsors, react to the conflict??There were questions, which our sponsoring representative frank jansen answered. The support of our gonners is different. They want to support mass sports and keep competitive sports in the region. You stand by us in good times and bad. They did not ask for professional replacements for the wolfs.Their decision was seen as selfish and not team-oriented. Fear lasting image damage for the club?That is a question of success. Saturday’s game against gotha will play a key role in this respect. Like mimmenhausen and fellbach, this team has six points, we have ten. If we win, the world is in order. Then 95 percent of the observers will say the club did everything right. If we lose, it will hail criticism. Many will say: how could you let the wolf brothers go?. But what choice did we have? The interview was conducted by steffen standke gotha’s robert werner is looking forward to meeting his former international colleagues

Caustic, toxic, easily inflammable: dangerous goods transport thunders through france unsecured

Caustic, toxic, easily inflammable: dangerous goods transport thunders through france unsecured

Yesterday, the hazardous goods squad of the erlangen traffic police prohibited a hazardous goods transport from continuing its journey on the A3 due to considerable deficiencies.

Actually, the reason for the stop at nurnberg-nord was that the driver of a semitrailer was talking on his cell phone while driving. The vehicle belonging to a turkish company was on its way from dusseldorf to istanbul, as reported by the erlangen traffic police department.

Transporter loaded with dangerous goods

When the freight documents were checked, it was first established that the transporter was predominantly loaded with dangerous goods. However, auben lacked any prescribed marking on the vehicle. The load consisted of liquids and substances classified as corrosive, toxic, flammable and hazardous to the environment.

Consumers stock up on medicines

Consumers stock up on medicines

Many consumers in germany have stocked up on medicines out of concern about the coronavirus. In march, demand for over-the-counter medicines rose sharply, giving pharmaceutical companies an exceptional boost.

This was reported by several drug manufacturers in response to a dpa inquiry. The rush in pharmacies is pushing logistics in the sector to its limits in some cases and fuelling the debate about supply shortages of medicines.

"In the last few weeks, we have had to cope with order volumes across our entire portfolio, some of which have tripled," explained ratiopharm’s parent company teva in ulm, for example.

Volkach fools get the key for the town hall

Volkach fools get the key for the town hall

"From today on, as you know, the fools will rule with wit and cunning", turned narrenchef torsten muller on friday evening loudly to burgermeister peter kornell. Only for a short time volkach’s head of town spat coarse tone from the stair throne of the town hall.

With foolish violence the bikers of the carnival association obervolkach (KVO) stormed the town hall, seized the key to the office and took the head of the town into custody. Kornell has to wait until ash wednesday to continue his term of office until the municipal elections in mid march.


A lot of fuss about flowerbeds

For years, locals and visitors coming to fridritt from the direction of munnerstadt were buried by an uninviting house in the pilgrims’ street. The building has now been restored by a young couple, but for some irritation has caused the plant in front of the house, because in part is touched city land. After some confusion, burgermeister helmut blank (CSU) has put forward a compromise proposal to resolve the matter. "When I drive in upstairs now, I have a super view", praises the head of the town. And it should stay that way.
The somewhat curious case was raised by the mayor at the most recent meeting of the building and environment committee. The "small problem the fact that a roughly five- to six-square-meter corner in front of the house does not belong to the new homeowner, but to the city, is a problem. He did not want to have the corner rebuilt and so blank suggested leasing it to the owner of the house, who would also have to bear the possible risks caused by the curb.

"Everything agreed"

Daniel veit is the new owner of the house. He has renovated the old building for himself and his partner susanne mattusch. The newspaper article gave the impression that he had unintentionally planted the flowerbeds in front of the house on city property, he says. "But that’s wrong, it was all agreed with the city councilor jurgen eckert", stresses daniel veit. However, the mayor believes that this was a misunderstanding.
"It was all neglected", the new owner recalls. Among the many problems was the fact that the building was not connected to the sewer system. The house has no basement, the sewer could not be laid deep, he explains. This is the reason why he has raised the discounts in front of the house, why the boundary stones protrude about 20 centimeters. This is to prevent the connection from freezing, he explains. This protruding edge right next to the road is the main reason for the discussions. There are fears that there could be problems with the winter service. The police had no problems with the rabbits during an inspection, says daniel veit.
This is confirmed by lothar manger, responsible for traffic at the police department of bad kissingen. He does, however, make one caveat: no tall plants were allowed to be planted. But that had been assured to him. The homeowner’s next problem was that the flowers he had ordered had already arrived at the dealer’s and now had to be planted urgently.

Burgermeister mediates

Helmut blank has intervened as a mediator in the incipient disagreements between daniel veit and the neighbors. His compromise proposal included that the owner dismantle a surveillance camera that neighbors have disturbed. Daniel veit has already done that. In return, he should be able to lease the city-owned land for a symbolic fee. But he is to lower a part of the rabbet stones. "I believe this decision is beneficial for all involved", says the mayor. He finds the redesign of the house and also the area in front of it very nice.

the christuskirche in kronach experiences a star hour of organ artistry

Kronach – never before heard in germany and europe presented the second concert of the 10. International organ cycle in kronach. Naji hakim and his wife marie-bernadette dufourcet-hakim had traveled from paris with a european premiere among other things. The visitors experienced a concert full of splendor in every respect in the very well attended christus church.

Accompanied by the reussian chamber orchestra and conducted by deanery cantor marius popp, a musical event full of opulence was heard, the kind of music one would expect to hear more in large cities. The world’s most esteemed composer and organist naji hakim loved – as a german and european premiere – his concert nr. 5 while his wife played the famous organ concerto in g minor by francis poulenc (1899 – 1963).

Dufourcet-hakim delivered a driving interpretation of the concerto in seven interlocking movements as a grand soloist on the organ. In perfectly coordinated interplay with the orchestra and under the finely nuanced direction of dean cantor marius popp, she turned the piece into a delightful journey through the composer’s emotional world. Through virtuosity and rough design skills, she succeeded in convincingly combining the contrasts of the melodically rich composition.

Samsung apologizes for death and illness trap

After cancer cases and deaths among hundreds of workers at its chip and display factories, technology giant samsung has issued an official apology.

Company president kim ki nam expressed regret for not doing "enough to address potential health risks in the chip and lcd panel production lines," according to south korean tv stations. "We sincerely apologize to those who have suffered from illnesses, as well as to the families of those who have been affected."Samsung agreed to settlement of pain and suffering claims.

The market leader’s move on memory chips, smartphones and TV sets followed years of wrangling with representatives of the victims’ families. Both sides had agreed this month to follow the decisions of a mediation committee and settle the dispute. Among other things, samsung declared its willingness to make up to 116.000 euros (150 million won) in compensation for pain and suffering to former and current employees whose illness can be attributed to the handling of chemicals at work.
