Gruber csu sends kaiser into the race

Gruber csu sends kaiser into the race

The chairman of the local CSU association in grub am forst, stefan greiner-petter, is, as he emphasizes, "happy and glad", having found this candidate: werner kaiser is "steadfast" and in many respects suitable for the new mayor’s post in gruber town hall. Incumbent kurt bernreuther (SPD) may not run again for reasons of age.

Werner kaiser is also no longer the youngest, and so is the woman stefan greiner-petter. But with his 60 years, he also has a lot of experience that can only be good for a community like grub am forst.

"He is a grown gruber child, as a lawyer he is absolutely well versed in all legal matters and is also very well known among the population due to his involvement in clubs – above all in the bowling club", the party chairman praises.

Spahn: not all afd voters are “lost nazis

Spahn: not all afd voters are

"I want to convince them of the union again."In the 2017 federal election, the union lost around 980,000 voters to the afd.

Spahn wants to win the debate with the party politically. Afd politicians like bjorn hocke "act racist, anti-democratic and anti-semitic, they incite and divide," he said. "Anyone who votes for this party needs to know who they are supporting."The CDU presidium member ruled out any agreed cooperation with the afd in german parliaments. However, he conceded: "it will not be possible to avoid the afd voting with the union in the federal parliament or in state parliaments."

With regard to his party, spahn called for a recognizable profile that is clearly distinguishable from the SPD. The faster the world turns, the greater people's need for connection, cohesion and family becomes. "It"s also about preserving cultural security: needs, traditions, the sunday day off."

Daycare places: place for every third child

Daycare places: place for every third child

Everyone is talking about it: nationwide, there are not enough daycare places in daycare centers to meet the needs of all those who will have a legal right to one from august 2013. From this point on, children under the age of three will also be able to go to a daycare center if their parents or legal guardians want them to. Is there also a shortage in the bad kissingen area?? It turned out that the municipalities of the region do not expect a wave of lawsuits.

Where family planning is still lacking
According to article 5 of the bavarian child education and care act, the municipalities are to ensure that the necessary daycare places are available. It's not that simple. Because there are often difficulties in planning the demand for places for children under the age of three, says thomas duda from the youth welfare office at the district administration office. Parents did not yet have any idea of their family planning, and children who actually had to be registered have not even been born yet. And it is still unclear who will claim childcare allowance.

When kindergarten questionnaires are handed out to determine need, the response rate is usually only 25 to 30 percent, which is not very informative. The need for daycare was usually determined using the average number of births and a formula for calculating the number of children under one. According to the study, five percent of children up to one year of age will need care, about 25 percent of children between one and two years of age, and 50 percent of children between two and three years of age.

According to the district administration, there are around 20 of these people in the habberge district who invoke obscure legal norms that date back to the time of the emperor and the empire.

Two of them have already received several visits from the police in their home town in the main valley, and one of them in ebern (soon to be 49 years old) receives many visits every weekend from like-minded people from neighboring counties, but especially from eastern federal states, as eyewitnesses describe.

Ba-chef calls for hartz iv reform

Ba-chef calls for hartz iv reform

This is what scheele told the "rheinische post. There should also be uniform rules for the imputation of assets. "This was going to make our job a lot easier and less money had to be shifted into the administrative budget," said scheele.

Scheele reminded the audience that the benefit is actually called basic security. "That’s exactly it: it’s the last safeguard that the state provides when someone can no longer help themselves."

Federal labor minister hubertus heil (SPD), meanwhile, wants to "detoxify" the debate about hartz IV, in his own words. "Both are wrong: both the occasional claim that all long-term unemployed people are lazy, which is still made, and the position that duties to cooperate violate human dignity," heil told the "berliner zeitung" newspaper. There will also be sanctions in the future. However, he advocated two changes. "The fact that the cost of housing is used for sanctions, unsettles many in times when housing is scarce. We shouldn’t do that," said heil. He also considers the tightened sanctions against young people to be wrong.

Commerzbank calculates closure of many branches

Commerzbank calculates closure of many branches

The "handelsblatt" (wednesday) reported on plans to reduce the number of branches from the current 1000 to between 800 and 900. According to information from "manager magazin," there is even a scenario on the table in which only 600 to 650 locations could be left in the end. A commerzbank spokesman did not want to comment on the reports when asked on wednesday.

Following the collapse of the hoped-for merger with deutsche bank, commerzbank is looking for answers to weak earnings and low interest rates. With its focus on private customers as well as corporate customers and smes, the mdax-listed bank considers itself to be fundamentally well positioned. However, martin zielke’s board of management was not satisfied with profitability recently. In the first half of the year, profit slumped to 391 million euros, compared with 533 million euros in the same period of the previous year.

And the outlook is becoming increasingly gloomy: the economy is weak, the european central bank (ECB) has been able to tighten the penalty interest rates for bank deposits even further. When presenting the quarterly figures at the beginning of august, zielke admitted that it would be "considerably more ambitious" to achieve the annual target of a slight increase in profits: "the challenges for the industry and for us are continuing to increase."

Nowitzki with bad luck in the final seconds of the game

Nowitzki with bad luck in the final seconds of the game

Dirk nowitzki chewed on his transparent mouthguard in dissatisfaction. In the last second, the basketball superstar of the dallas mavericks had a chance to tie the game with the nuggets, but his shot hit the front rim of the ring.

Texans just missed fifth win in series with 100-102 shutout loss. "We ran a good play," nowitzki analyzed the end of the game. "I had to let one go and had an open throw, but it just didn’t go in."

After recent strong performances, the wurzburger continued his personal trend with 27 points as the top scorer of his NBA team, but lacked shooting luck in the heiben phase. His three throws in the final minute and a half missed their target. "I simply have to be better at the end," nowitzki struggled with himself.

Plastic fasting: yannick tries it himself

Plastic fasting: yannick tries it himself

In the cup or in the waffle?" I almost wanted to give the man behind the ice cream counter a routine "cup" answer, but then I remembered: eating ice cream without a lollipop – bad. So either sit down and enjoy the ice cream with a real spoon or take it with you in a waffle.

At the beginning of my experiment, I thought to myself: plastic fasting can’t be that hard. Looking at the beaches of this world, the plastic mountains of these households, i asked myself: "does it have to be like this?? Do we really need so much plastic??"

The material is almost everywhere: the collection of tupperware in the kitchen, the face cream in the bathroom or the window cleaner in the cleaning bucket. If you pay close attention to your environment and to what you use, it becomes clear that plastic is established in all areas of life. Our, my plastic consumption is too high for this world.

Crooked thing, screwed up debate

Crooked thing, screwed up debate

It’s just stupid when blurred and then factual errors creep into the discussion, but are passed on: be it in media reporting or in the exchange of blows between the parties. It’s even sillier when representatives of the political caste, who should have known better, toot the same horn.

Example: edmund stoiber and the widely reported cucumber crumbs. During his visit to kulmbach, a man who regularly worked as a top official in brussels for seven years referred to this corpus delicti as proof that the EU, which is hated by many, intervenes in the furthest corners of daily life, and does so – he agrees with the critics – in a patronizing manner.

Blob: the "cucumber crumbs" paragraph is no good for exactly that! The truth is: yes, the forerunner of the eu, the european community, had regulated the degree of curvature for cucumbers, among other things, in a five-page ordinance in 1988. On ten centimeters long there may be a deviation from the straight line of a maximum of ten millimeters. But the truth is also: the impetus for this came – precisely: from trade. The wanted to have bindingly regulated, how many cucumbers can be placed in a standardized unit box. Goods with standard weight and coarseness are easier to pack/transport.

Rhon dairy farmers demand fair prices

Rhon dairy farmers demand fair prices

The federal association of german dairy farmers (BDM) is sounding the alarm. On the occasion of today's milk day, numerous protest actions took place across germany on sunday, in which dairy farmers drew attention to the enormous drop in milk prices in particular. So too in the bad kissinger fubganger zone. The BDM district association held a vigil at the corner of ludwigstrasse and lower marktstrasse. "We want to inform and make people aware that a lot of things are wrong, says BDM district vice chairman alfred greubel. With a tractor, transparencies and a cow, they secured the attention of passers-by.

Less money in rural areas
The farmers complain that they have to sell their milk too cheaply on the market and they fear that the prices will rise even more further decline. "In january, we had a cost development similar to that of the terrible milk crisis of 2009", says the organic dairy farmer from elfershausen. To the 1. On april, the european union also scrapped the milk quota, which had previously regulated milk production and guaranteed stable prices for farmers.

The development also has an impact in the district. The current milk price is ten cents below the previous year's level, greubel calculates. 32 million liters are produced annually in the county. "That is 3.2 million euros that are missing in the rural area. The farmers here can't spend any more", the farmer says.
The price for a liter of conventional milk is currently 30 cents. That doesn't leave much for farmers, greubel says. Just to pay for the variable costs, such as the feed for the cows and the electricity for the barn, 26 cents per liter is necessary. "There is still no work paid", says greubel. "The dairies have already announced to go down by three to four cents." This is where things get critical for farmers.
