G8 summit: syria talks face dead end

Al-assad manoeuvred into the sidelines. A meeting between U.S. President barack obama and his russian counterpart vladimir putin also failed to produce any tangible progress. Both had different views on the issue, obama said monday evening after extensive talks with putin at the G8 summit near enniskillen in northern ireland.

This coincided with the assessment of diplomats who had previously said that it would be extremely difficult to formulate a common position on the syrian conflict for the final declaration of the summit. German chancellor angela merkel and the other western heads of state and government nevertheless hoped to persuade putin to reach a feasible diplomatic solution.

The press conference of obama and putin showed how bad and undercool the relationship of the presidents is. They almost did not look at each other at all. The facial expressions and gestures of both men were marked by distance. Still, both said they would continue to look for ways to resolve the bloodshed politically.

“Jupp effect” continues at fc bayern

The "jupp effect" also held in ancelotti style. Even without the glamour of the first two goal galas under returning coach heynckes, FC bayern munchen has caught up in the standings.

The five-point gap to BVB has shrunk to three goals ahead of the landmark duels with rb leipzig and top-ranked borussia dortmund. Soccer idol uwe seeler expects bavaria to go it alone in the bundesliga again soon thanks to coach-routineer heynckes.

"Now that jupp has brought them back up to speed, it could indeed happen again that they march through again. Bayern has such good players that winning the next title would be normal," said the honorary captain of the german national team after the 1-0 (0-0) win at hamburger SV. FCB head of defense mats hummels particularly emphasized the team spirit that the experienced triple winner coach of 2013 promptly and successfully awakened in the record champion after the separation from carlo ancelotti.

Redevelopment is expensive for rudenhausen

redevelopment is expensive for rudenhausen

The councillors in rudenhausen are not entirely happy with what thomas gluckert from tiefbauburo gluckert presented to them: the renovation of the municipal rainwater overflow basin is to cost 205,000 euros, not including ancillary construction costs. And one could not really see the necessity either.
However, on the basis of photos, the civil engineer showed that the condition of the pool leaves a lot to be desired, cracks are appearing everywhere in the side slope, the concrete is flaking off in places, the preservation is partly visible and grass is already growing in the cracks. "The most important criterion is "tightness", emphasized gurgling.

Violation of sewage law
Also the well, which provides for a permanent lowering of the groundwater level under the basin and through which the groundwater runs back into the stream when the level of the schirnbach rises, is not in accordance with the standards. "Here the dirty water can mix with the groundwater, something like that must not be", declared gluckert. This in turn makes the installation of a non-return valve necessary.
"Does one not push there sometimes with cannons on sparrows?", interjected karl heinz rebitzer. The expert warned that the municipality would be liable to prosecution if it violated this sewage law.
The planning office had thought through a total of seven variants. The most suitable and cost-efficient variant was selected, in which a 15-centimeter-thick floor slab with plenty of structural steel is to seal the floor. The cracks in the concrete have been grouted, the sidewalls have been replaced by a
ECC-mortel sealed with a thickness of three to five millimeters. "This way, we only lose about 80 cubic meters of volume."
During a heavy rain, the first highly concentrated spoolstob, which rubs along the buildup deposited in the channels after a dry period, and the rainwater mix together. This mixed water is dammed up in the rainwater overflow basin and only gradually passed on to the clarification plant in the schwarzach basin.

Important for the association
Of course, the basin with the current volume is oversized for the waste water of the village, but as a retention basin for the special purpose association it is absolutely necessary.
"We're renovating at our own expense for the special-purpose association", erich ackermann was one of several council members to voice his displeasure. "I am in zugzwang, since 2002 the basin is already moniert by the water management office", explained mayor gerhard ackermann. And he ended the discussion of the board with the words. "We have been through all this ten times already. The whole thing has long been decided and already planned in the budget."
The work on the rainwater retention basin has already been coordinated with the relevant authorities, and the invitations to tender can follow soon, according to thomas gluckert from the planning office.

New vehicle needed

New vehicle needed

The district water patrol forchheim needs a new emergency vehicle. The aging command vehicle is in urgent need of replacement, as repair and maintenance costs exceed its value and the vehicle is rusting tremendously. A new vehicle is needed, according to a press release, and the water rescue organization in the district of forchheim is dependent on donations.

The vehicle, which is at the disposal of the water rescue officer, is the first to be alerted in the event of an accident in or on the water. The incident commander drives to the scene of the incident with this vehicle, reconnoiters the situation, calls in further emergency services and directs the operation. In case of emergency, the officer-in-charge is an important person for the safety of bathers in the waters of the district of forchheim.

With all-wheel drive

This is exactly why the water rescue service believes it is so important to quickly find adequate replacements. A special vehicle has already been selected, with all-wheel drive, in order to be able to drive to the scene of the incident even on rough terrain and not lose any time until arriving at the scene of the incident. The new vehicle requires a high trailer load to safely maneuver the motor rescue boats in and out of the water. The latest radio technology is installed so that contact can be made with the control center and other emergency services while the vehicle is still on the road.

After the dance, the girls are relieved: "everything went well, and we are satisfied with our performance" they say. Immediately after the next dance of the "thornroschen from poppenlauer, however, it is clear that a victory against this team will be difficult to achieve. Unfortunately it did not work out with the victory again.

The victory was won by the girls and boys of DJK altbessingen. Their soldier power was unbeatable this evening.

Wonderful sound experiences

Wonderful sound experiences

Sarah stieranka

rainer herr sits at the organ in the collegiate church at banz monastery. His left hand is up, his right hand is down. As if by magic, his hands move, music sounds in the church, the music book is still closed. This automatism is understandable, because since his childhood he has been deeply connected with music and this organ in the banzer stiftskirche is very familiar to him.
For 30 years, about eight organ matinees have been played there each year – rainer herr played the first one in 1988. "Pastor old was the initiator of the organ matinees and he won me over for it", he remembers. At first, the then german, geography, and history teacher played the 30-minute concerts alone – after a short time, jitka maisel and axel stumpf joined in.

Original idea of the organ matinees

"The idea at the beginning was that young organists could play concerts. But I needed someone to plan and organize everything", says pastor hans-werner alt. This person was rainer herr, who knew many organists at that time. On the gallery at the seuffert-woehl-organ they played alternately their organ music – pieces by johann sebastian bach, by the french composer hans sternberg or also by father johann valentin rathgeber, who lived until his death at the monastery of banz.

Luck is when the gap is closed

Luck is when the gap is closed

What is happiness and what is the meaning of life?? Two questions that have moved people since time immemorial and to which religions and philosophies have sought answers. The buddhist monch linji, which in 9. The company, which lived in the twentieth century, has dealt with this issue forcefully. And with him, in turn, jens wimmers, lecturer in philosophy at bamberg university. So intense that he even wrote a book "linji’s way to happiness", he wrote about him.

At a reading in the bookstore bucher-schmidt in adelsdorf, he presented it. He not only read from his work, but also explained a great deal about the philosophical considerations of happiness. He did not stay with the buddhist direction as represented by linji. Greek philosophy à la artistotle on the subject of happiness was also presented by him in detail.

In principle, it is about inner harmony and the attempt to put one’s own inner turmoil back together again. Then you’re back to the middle high german "gelucke", from which the word "luck" is derived which is nothing other than a "closed hole" denotes. One tur, for example, is a luck because it closes the gap in the entrance to the house.
