The suffering of anika hob

The suffering of anika hob

Anika hob reached the soccer field at frickenhauser geheu, high above the roofs of the community, on tuesday evening tired and in pain. She was standing at the edge of the grass rectangle, cut down to two sticks, and when she saw her teammates dashing across the field, she suddenly realized what she had lost two days earlier in that very spot. Not even one game, which her team had won against leer-stetten. For anika hob, it was the illusion of finally surviving a season without injury and completely free of pain. She did not live to see the final whistle on sunday. At that time, she was already an outpatient at the accident clinic.

She didn’t have to wait for a diagnosis: she knew what had happened when she got her right fub stuck in the turf after about half an hour of play. "The knee didn’t rotate," she says, referring to the tense scene in which she tried to chase after an opponent.

"I already thought that it would be a cruciate ligament rupture."

Head of the economic wise men criticizes spd tax plan

head of the economic wise men criticizes spd tax plan

"Who raises taxes sends negative signals to the companies that create jobs. You can hardly encourage high performers to work harder and take more entrepreneurial risk if you’re also shilling for them," schmidt told the "rheinische post" (tuesday). "We have in the historical comparison with the highest tax burden, the taxes have increased in the ara (of chancellor angela) merkel more than the economic growth. I do not consider further increases to be appropriate in this situation."

Walter-borjans had suggested withholding just under half the income of top earners. As an example he mentioned a single with 750.000 euros in annual earnings. The top tax rate is currently 42 percent and applies from around 55.000 euro annual income. From a good 260.000 euro, the so-called wealth tax of 45 percent applies.

Schmidt, like the union and the FDP, called for taxes to be lowered sooner. "It is high time for a reform of the company tax, because many countries around us have lowered the taxes. Germany will be dragged down in international competition as a result," he said. He also reiterated his call for the solidarity surcharge to be abolished quickly and completely.

Lammerts no to npd ban angers deputies

Lammerts no to npd ban angers deputies

Members of the SPD and left criticized this as inappropriate. The landers lacked comrades in arms in their advance. Chancellor angela merkel (CDU) had already announced on thursday that the federal government would not decide until march 2013 whether it would support the procedure. If necessary, the lander will take the extreme right-wing party to the federal constitutional court alone.

The minister presidents had spoken out unanimously in berlin on thursday in favor of a new application for a ban. The official decision is to follow next friday in the bundesrat. Formally, a request from a single constitutional body – the bundesrat, bundestag or federal government – is enough. But the countries want a common advance.

Lammert gave them little hope of that. In the "frankfurter allgemeine zeitung," he expressed doubts as to whether the collection of incriminating evidence against the NPD presented by the ministers of the interior would be sufficient for a ban. Even the legal justifications did not make sense to him: "it’s better to leave it alone," he advised. The risk that the european court of human rights would revoke a ban on the NPD was great.

Clean groundwater first goal

Clean groundwater first goal

Glyphosate, nitrates, phosphates – key issues when it comes to clean groundwater. How to deal with it practically? What are the current legal requirements?? What is the farmer allowed to do and what is he not allowed to do??
Questions like these were the central topic at the expert conference on crop production at the sportheim in wiesengiech. Such educational seminars for farmers are regularly organized by the amt fur ernahrung, landwirtschaft und forsten (AELF) bamberg during the winter months. Education officer waltraud dummler was now able to bury around 130 pawns for this purpose.
In the first major presentation, reinhard ostermeier from the bayreuth center for plant cultivation, one of the four bavarian centers, provided information on current plant protection measures. When explaining glyphosate, he advised the farmers not to buy too much spray because they do not know how long it will be allowed – knowing that there is no verdict yet on whether glyphosate is actually toxic or not.
However, ostermeier urgently pointed out not to spray wegrander or ditches and to observe the slope requirements. With some pictures of blooming rapeseed fields, he warned not to spray with B4 bee-hazardous products during the time when bees are flying, as there is a danger of residues in the honey and beekeepers and farmers need and use each other.
The main topic, however, was the new dung ordinance. Waltraud dummler explained that the european union (eu) had also called on germany to make its groundwater cleaner because it contained too much nitrate and phosphate. But the reduction was a matter for the country. In germany from 31. March a new dunge regulation. "It is imperative that we comply with this, otherwise it will be further aggravated", blue the farmer.
Claudia alberts from AELF coburg came to wiesengiech to provide information on requirements and control points. "The water distance of four meters, or one meter if the dung is placed, must be observed, as well as the requirements for slopes, she admonished the audience. They also addressed the changed suspension periods for gulle in order not to have to set penalties. The storage capacity for the next few years has been changed and there is no room for deviation. Just as with the slurry, the farmers also had to keep precise records for the material flow balance – which the farmers grumbled about "but there's no getting around it anymore", said the speaker.
She answered the few questions of those present in a matter-of-fact and precise manner and left no room for interpretation. For all possible problems, it is advisable to contact the office beforehand.

Important guide

Waltraud dummler, for her part, used many tables to explain the calculation of the need for fertilizer on arable land and grassland. Like a pastor with a bible, she kept holding the "yellow booklet, a guide to manuring arable land and grassland to the high. "Every farmer must have and read this yellow booklet!", he would tell him several times if a farmer did not listen to his father's words. It was criticized not only by her, but in general, that the necessary programs for easier bookkeeping were not yet available in easy "computer" form submissions.
Anton weig finally concluded the presentations. In the past year, he had carried out tests on fields at three farmers in the district together with the owners, machine manufacturers and traders, and now reported in detail on the results.
The first attempt was to grow the yellow cup plant, also called silphia, on the farm of jorg deinlein in neudorf near scheblitz. The next one ran on the farm of georg and stefan hollfelder in litzendorf under the title "plowless clover-grass plowing in the spring before corn with and without glyphosate". Although the harvest results were presented in detail, in the discussion farmers also pointed out that last year's weather conditions were different from usual and that the product was therefore necessary. The last trial was about the intercrops in hohengubbach with norbert hollfelder.

It's all about reputation

Waltraud dummler closed the event with the words: "i didn't want agriculture to be pilloried, but i wanted farmers to keep their good reputation as farmers!"

Tsl seeks new talent

Tsl seeks new talent

Lichtenfels – the TS lichtenfels gymnastics department is currently planning to rebuild a performance-oriented gymnastics team. Free training capacities make it possible to introduce a small group of talented boys to competitive gymnastics.
After a test, a group of six to eight boys in the 2006-09 age group is created, which in a special program deals with the training of the performance requirements for apparatus gymnastics. Body tension, jumping, strength and gymnastic elements are trained twice a week. The gymnastics on the typical is still of secondary importance. After a quarter of a year, they will devote themselves more and more to the gymnastic elements, which will then lead to the first small exercises and possibly to the first competitions in spring 2015.
The training team consists of four licensed instructors and two expert assistants. Due to the close contact that the gymnast develops with the trainer – when learning the handstand, help is needed about 250 times – work can only be done in small groups. It is then possible to increase the number of training sessions to four to five times a week. The commitment of parents is just as important, since competitive and elite sports are only possible with the appropriate support at home.
Invited to the performance test tomorrow, thursday, are all interested boys of the 2006-09 age group from 5 p.M. In the TS hall, schutzenstrabe 3. No club membership is required to take part in the test. Peja

Dispute over climate change: grunen wants county to set an example

Dispute over climate change: grunen wants county to set an example

Regarding the article "climate manager: CSU’s assertion upsets district administrator and SPD the editorial office received a statement from the district council faction of bundnis 90/die grunen: "has the CSU forgotten the results and its voting behavior in the climate and district committee in the summer of 2020?? It is simply dishonest to accuse the district administration of tendering for a position without consulting the committees. This is simply wrong", says the letter. As already stated in the statement of the district office, it was only a matter of putting an already approved position out to tender as quickly as possible, with the approval of all the parliamentary groups. This was discussed at the meeting of the parliamentary group chairmen. All the parliamentary groups had agreed to this procedure – except for the CSU. "It’s their right to wait for the budget to be passed", writes parliamentary group chairwoman gisela kramer-grunwald. "In doing so, however, the parliamentary group accepts that the hiring of a climate manager will again be delayed by months."

Apparently, the CSU sees no urgent need for action on the climate crisis. And this despite the fact that the bad news was piling up. The ESD station in marktsteft is still a long way from being in dry cloths. The CSU’s fear of overburdening the county and the municipalities with the costs of a climate manager is decidedly short-sighted. "Those who make savings today in tackling the climate crisis will have to reckon with significantly higher costs in the future", writes kramer-grunwald. "The county of kitzingen must set an example."

Despite the storms, Low is sticking to his title goal

"As things stand today, we’re completely ahead of the game," was the national coach’s initial response in sardinia to the question of whether he was currently scaling back his expectations. Of course i was just kidding. "No," he continued in a firm voice, "i don’t constantly change my expectations."He is "absolutely relaxed," the 52-year-old even cheated in his first address to the soccer nation during the training camp on the italian vacation island, where he can now work with 17 players. "The preparation will ultimately work out quite well with all the hurdles we have," low promised the fans at home: "our team will go into the tournament well prepared."

With 24 days to go before the first group game against superstar cristiano ronaldo’s portugal, low reiterated his young team’s "world-class performances" in several recent internationals, and spoke of their top performances in terms of running and ball contact times. Only problem: schweinsteiger, klose, podolski& co. Must be ready for the first tournament game on 9. June to be back in their best condition. "If you want to go far in the tournament, you need a top performance six times – from everyone," low stressed.

The arrival of the five dortmund double winners in sardinia and the imminent arrival of spanish champions mesut ozil and sami khedira on sunday at the second camp in southern france has brightened the mood of the national coach.

The gloss of the week: holland festivities in sommerach

The gloss of the week: holland festivities in sommerach

There are supposed to be people who don’t like either greta thunberg or autumn at all. Both have happened: here is a teenager giving the old guard a piece of his mind. And there the golden autumn sun, the first gluhwein and chestnuts that fall on your head.

The latter is not bad insofar as it supposedly increases the mental capacity. From this point of view, the punishment for the 23 year old hollander, who vandalized the sommerach sports field with a car in august, is already fixed: the man should a) make up for the damage and b) he should be put under a chestnut tree and every member of the SV/DJK sommerach is allowed to rutteln once on the tree.

What the story of the destroyed sports field teaches us? Three. On the one hand: it’s good to have a dedicated policeman like helmut pfaff in your association. Besides: never brag about your misdeeds in a pub – that’s really rare at that time. And finally: the connection germany-holland-fubball still has it in itself. An eternal rivalry. The earworm "without holland we’ll go to the world cup" expresses quite well the sensitivities.
