Hamilton and schumacher: kingpins on the market

Hamilton and schumacher: kingpins on the market

The million-dollar question is: will the brite remain loyal to the mclaren team after all, or will he send michael schumacher into retirement at mercedes?? The industry is nervously waiting for the decision that could bring powerful movement into the driver market for 2013.

Hamilton and schumacher are the kingpins. Every statement, every step in the paddock of the glare-lit marina bay street circuit is observed and interpreted. "I don’t have any news, so be smart and use the time for other questions," world championship runner-up hamilton admonishes waiting journalists. Old master schumacher is too experienced anyway to fall into the trap of shrewd reporters. Sorry," says the 43-year-old with a smile, "there won’t be any information before october.

The hangover makes the rumors bloom. Hamilton won’t accept a pay cut at mclaren, it says. Mercedes, on the other hand, is ready to meet his fee demand. In addition, the swabian car manufacturer is now willing to "sacrifice" record champion schumacher, as the "bild" newspaper claims to have learned. On the other hand, the "welt" reports that the seven-time world champion could decide for himself whether to continue driving in 2013 and 2014 thanks to a unilateral option.

A derby to forget for grobbardorf

A derby to forget for grobbardorf

TSV grobbardorf – wurzburger FV 0:2 (0:1). Goals: 0:1 dennie michel (22.), 0:2 moritz lotzen (50.). While the players of the wurzburger FV rolled jubilantly on the turf of the grobbardorfer bioenergie arena and celebrated their derby victory, the home team stood by threatened, very often unbelievable head shaking was to be seen. "We had imagined it quite differently, said andreas lampert, the head of sports for the grabfeld galliers.

Yes, the home team had gone into this derby as favorites. But there was hardly any sign of it. "The first 20 minutes were still okay", found grobbardorf’s head coach andre betz. "Then, however, we were much too passive and no longer radiated any danger of scoring a goal. That was not a performance I can agree with." Despite the fact that captain stefan piecha and dominik zehe were again on board, two men who normally dominate the midfield play of the hosts. But they were also unable to set any accents in this derby.

The initial phase also resulted in the first of only two opportunities for bardorf in the first half. After a well-staged attack, goalkeeper simon snaschel was able to finish in the penalty area, but his shot was not well-placed enough to seriously embarrass former grobbardorf player christian dietz (4.). Then it lasted until 36. Minute, before dietz was challenged for the second time by a rutzel shot. After that, the work of the WFV keeper was practically over that day, because his front men love in the second half no more chance of the home side to.

In good hands, oh no – throats!

In good hands, oh no - throats!

Johann sebastian bach’s "christmas oratorio is performed over 40 times in berlin this christmas season; in bad kissingen for the 20th time. Jubilee of the kissinger winter magic fortunately also once. This performance for the 3. Advent in the max-littmann-saal in the frame of the 20. Anniversary year of the "bad kissinger winterzaubers became a joyful celebration of the christmas story for the visitors in the very well filled hall. Cantor burkhard ascherl had a very good hand in the selection of his colleagues, the mitteldeutsches kammerorchester and the four vocal soloists, all of whom were excellently disposed.

As usual, the first three parts of the "oratorio" were very successful six individual cantatas for the three days of christmas (25.-27. 12.), new year, 1. Sunday in january and epiphany for performance. One of the most beautiful arias from the rarely performed 4. Part, the popular echo aria, ascherl had in the 2. Part integrated, which fit very well. Already at the opening chorus "jauchzet, frohlocket" the instrumentalists from bach’s homeland and their conductor from kissingen showed, as throughout the entire oratorio, with a brisk, driving tempo, that they were serious about the festive jubilation of the three trumpets, the timpani, the transverse flutes and the oboes, the confectionary splendor for the just-born christ.

The choir of kissingen also proved how well prepared it was, and impressed from the beginning with its exact pronunciation, very pointedly shaped rhythm, balance, and good musical structure. This good impression also continued in the many chorales (such as "wie soll ich dich empfangen") to the melody of "O haupt voll blut und wunden" or the very well arranged male voices in "ach mein herzliebes jesulein"). Although the cantor’s songs were supposed to give the congregation the opportunity to sing along, they were sung very freshly and with a lot of verve by the kantorei. But also the concert with the soloists in the quite delicate alternation with soprano and bass in "he is on earth come poor" succeeded very well.

Wind turbines please on the jura

Wind turbines please on the jura

The wind priority areas are currently sweeping through the town and municipal councils in upper franconia like a storm. The municipalities still have until friday to submit their comments to the regional planning association of upper franconia-west.
Bad staffelstein is affected by the areas draisdorf-west, puchitz-sud and tiefenroth-west. With different majorities, the city councils rejected all three areas. They may be removed from the list of priority areas. Mayor jurgen kohmann (CSU) made it clear that the city only had to worry about the flat and the windmills planned for it, but not about the economic viability of it. This is exclusively a matter and risk of an investor.

Alternative flat at lame

But because the energy turnaround is desired, kohmann said, the council should propose an alternative flat to the planners. It is located between lahm and kummersreuth, is about 150 hectares in size and keeps all necessary distances to houses. The idea came from the "neue energie obermain" cooperative. Citizens can participate in this cooperative. Among them are also some city councilors, for example the faction spokesman of the SBUN, werner freitag.
That's why winfried ernst, spokesman for the free voters' group, wanted to know whether the cooperative had already secured land in the proposed area. Then, he argued, those involved themselves decided to have the area upgraded in their favor.
"I think it is a pity that they take up the subject. They want to make blob headlines again", answered mayor kohmann.
Hartwig hummer (CSU), who owns some of the affected areas, announced that he would not vote. But he also said: "to my knowledge, there have been no negotiations up there with any landowner yet."

Reconstruction work has begun on the hospital’s turnaround ramp

"We wanted to quickly create a solution without problems", emphasize district administrator christian meibner and hospital director eva gill. While the problems at the access road were only discussed last week during the first review of the operation of the new regiomed hospital, yesterday morning the excavators of the district construction yard already rolled in: the access road is to be improved by a reconstruction of the turning ramp, i.E. A reconstruction of the ground in its center and its asphalting. In a test phase until spring, they want to see if this provisional solution will stand the test of time, so that they can then tackle concrete measures.

Complaints about the access road and the short-term parking spaces at the entrance to the new regiomed clinic in lichtenfels have been piling up recently. The traffic circle with the integrated ground plane was considered too narrow for turning. That is why it is now to be reconstructed and asphalted. The reconstruction work is expected to continue until this thursday.

Should unscheduled situations arise, it was quite possible that residual work had to be done on friday, says the head of the district building yard, heiko tremel. According to his information, the existing gutters and curbs will be removed and a layer of asphalt will be installed as a temporary solution over the winter. The district’s construction yard is placing flexible curbs in the way the future traffic route should be. It would also be possible to run a "test phase" over the winter the technical director of the hospital, markus semmelroch, explains.

Hochstadt: aischpark-center provides jobs

Hochstadt: aischpark-center provides jobs

If you search the job boards for hochstadt an der aisch as a place to work, you’ll find a bit more job ads than usual. This is directly related to the fact that the countdown on the homepage of the aischpark-center keeps running towards zero. On 17. In october there will be a small opening party and the day after the official opening of the doors. By then, all businesses want to have their positions filled.

Michael peterding, project developer at klappan gmbh, which is jointly responsible for the center, reckons that 300 to 350 new jobs have been created. The most wanted job: salesman. From mattress retailers to supermarkets – they all need people who can get the goods to the customers. The retail chain woolworth, for example, is currently looking for a full-time, part-time and part-time salesperson via the job portal of the employment agency. Even the two shoe retailers deichmann and K+K schuh-center liked to have another salesperson in the team.

Difficult search

However, the search for workers is not always easy. Although dehner reports that all the positions in the new branch have been filled and that only temporary workers are still being sought, there are still vacancies elsewhere.

Fair trade: ebern does the same as eltmann

Fair trade: ebern does the same as eltmann

Imitating something is generally considered to be perverse, unoriginal and uninspired. But by no means: exactly this idea of "imitating" ebern’s mayor, jurgen hennemann (SPD), took up the cause on tuesday evening in the frauengrundhalle at the former federal military base and wished that as many municipalities as possible in the habberge district and the region would do the same. Because ebern wants "fairtrade-becoming a city and thus setting an example in terms of "fair trade and "living sustainably.

Another sign, because: the baunach alliance with its eleven members from three counties (including six habberge municipalities) already has a pioneer in its own ranks. The town of baunach in the district of bamberg already holds the title of "fairtrade town," and "if ebern follows suit, we might get the other communities to do the same, so that we might become the first fairtrade alliance," he says, said hennemann at the launch event.

But first things first. There is not yet a single official fair trade town in the habberge district, and like "one world regional promoter shiloe mokay-rinke from the "one world network of bavaria" association on tuesday evening, the district of habberge declared that it is the only one in the government district that does not yet have a fair trade municipality in its ranks. But she did not mean it in a reproachful way, because she also said that many of the local communities and cities already fulfilled most of the criteria to be awarded the title. More on these criteria later.

51-Year-old from the biker scene arrested

51-year-old from the biker scene arrested

In the course of thursday he will be brought before the investigating judge of the district court of aschaffenburg by order of the aschaffenburg public prosecutor’s office.

Already for some months police and public prosecutor’s office investigations run against the 51-year-old miltenberger. On the one hand, it is about the accusation of dangerous bodily harm, threats and copying to the detriment of his former companion in life. He is said to have beaten them several times in the past and in one case injured them with a coffee table. He also made threats against the young woman’s life, which he posted on the social network "facebook", among other places published.

The 51-year-old’s obvious potential for violence was also evident at this year’s miltenberg "laughing parade" on 9. February this year. Here he is said to have kicked a young woman, who was clearly physically inferior to him, in the head with his fub after an initially verbal argument, so that she lost consciousness for a short time. During his subsequent arrest, he resisted officers of the miltenberg police and was taken into custody. In the course of this, the police found a forbidden switchblade, which he had been carrying during the incident.
