Sudzucker suffers from weak exports

Sudzucker suffers from weak exports

This was announced by the mdax company when it presented detailed figures on thursday. In addition, the division suffered from high raw material costs. The segment’s operating profit fell by 36 percent to 143 million euros. "This hurts us quite a bit," said a sudzucker spokesman.

When the EU sugar market regulation expires in its current form at the end of 2017, increasing fluctuations are to be expected in the sugar segment. Without a sugar quota and a minimum price for rubies, a piece of stability would be lost, said the spokesman. "There is a lack of a reliable basis for planning." The market order regulates the import of the cheaper cane sugar. Although the loss of sudzucker is causing mixed feelings, the spokesman stressed that the group is well positioned.

Group sales fell by just under one percent to 2.02 billion euros. Operating profit fell by 35 percent to 194 million euros. At 115 million euros, sudzucker’s bottom line was 34 percent lower than a year ago. "Compared to last year, it’s a step down," said the spokesman. "But we have one of the best half-year results in the company’s history."Last year was an exceptional year due to good export opportunities and low reuben prices. "We were aware that we would not get this again."

Bread for a new classroom

Bread for a new classroom

For several years now, weisendorf schoolchildren have been helping needy children in the indian region of zubza in nagaland. What began with a pen pal relationship initiated by religion teacher ernst klimek has since grown into numerous fundraising campaigns. According to a press release, the schoolchildren, who call themselves zubzas, now want to finance a new classroom at the school in zubza. In the family service of the parish of st. Josef, who supported them, they first reported on the current situation in india.

Too far away from school
There is a high infant mortality rate, and 45 percent of children between the ages of six and 14, especially girls, do not attend school. Eleven million children live on the streets. Many children live too far from school and their parents cannot afford to pay for their accommodation.
And yet there is a chance for the children and pen pals in nagaland, he says. The don bosco school there continues to accept children when their parents cannot afford to pay a contribution due to their low and often irregular income of 20 euros a month. However, since up to 60 children attend classes in the classrooms, the zubzas want to help finance another urgently needed classroom this year. The school receives hardly any state support.
"We are always coming up with new and interesting activities for our pen pals, including the 725th anniversary of weisendorf. You will be amazed", ten-year-old lena made a promise to the church service visitors. The children's rights team, which now also operates as a terre des hommes action group, hopes that as many citizens as possible will participate in the new aid project by donating to the classroom.

100 solid breads sold
For the kick-off, the zubzas and their teacher hanne bohringer had come up with a culinary incentive: slices of bread with a delicious spread. After the blessing by pastor lars rebhan, these and 100 loaves of solid bread "sold like hot cakes", ten-year-old laura was delighted. By making a donation, the children of nagaland can grow up in a loving and respectful environment and later become advocates for themselves, their families and their village community, the schools advertised. And 100 percent of the aid arrives in zubza.
In october 2014, the parish of st. Josef with pastor lars rebhan a visit to the partner parish and a trip to zubza. Perhaps then the ceremonial inauguration and blessing of the new classroom can already take place. In addition, the pediatrician renata lysy will report on friday, april 19, at 4 p.M. In the weekenau. April, at 4 p.M. In the weisendorf town hall hall about her visit to zubza. On 16. On may 25, the zubzas present the already completed aid projects and the classroom project in nagaland to the state parliament, parliament and deputies in munich.

Pope deplores “globalization of indifference” in lampedusa

Pope deplores 'globalization of indifference' in lampedusa

His first trip is to the refugees: pope francis has denounced the indifference to the fate of migrants on the island of lampedusa. In a dramatic appeal on monday, he called for more solidarity with those desperately seeking help. Our culture of affluence leads us to "think only of ourselves, it makes us indifferent to the outcry of others, let’s live in beautiful bubbles", the pope proclaimed in a mass on the sports field of the italian island. About 10.000 migrants and islanders, he called for a move away from a "globalization of indifference".

The death of migrants during a crossing is like a painful "thorn in the heart", franciscus said. Man has become disoriented, he no longer cares about others. God must be asked for forgiveness for this indifference. He will also judge people by how they treat the most miserable, francis wrote on twitter after the mass.

"And when this disorientation takes on global proportions, such tragedies occur," she says, says the pope. The cruelty in the world was also contributed to by those who made social and economic concessions that paved the way for dramatic shipwrecks.

Gobweinsteiner discuss sud bypass

Gobweinsteiner discuss sud bypass

With around 50 burgers, the SPD event on the gobweinstein bypass in the scheffel inn was very well attended. SPD spokesmen jurgen kranzlein, georg bauernschmidt, bernhard vogel and ferdinand haselmeier said there was no alternative to the sudan bypass for further successful development.

Not all, but the vast majority of the participants in the meeting felt the same way after the presentation of the routes by mayor hanngorg zimmermann (BMG). First plans for sud bypass date back to 1974.

The architect franz neuner from hollfeld came to the conclusion more than 40 years ago that a bypass would solve all traffic problems in gobweinstein. At that time, neuner even planned a tunnel with underground parking under the basilica or a cable car from behringersmuhle to the main town.

Geiger: protest against china at olympics out of place

Geiger: protest against china at olympics out of place

It goes with the games from the 4. February is about sport and not politics, said the 28-year-old from oberstdorf in an interview with the "augsburger allgemeine" newspaper. The political issues had to be clarified when the contract was awarded to china.

"We active people cannot take the blame for what the politicians have failed to do. There is no doubt that there are things and developments in china that are questionable. But protesting against this is out of place at the olympics," said geiger. For the athletes it is about fair competitions and the fight between.

The USA has announced that it will not send any diplomatic or official representatives to the games in china. Australia, canada and great britain joined in. New zealand also does not want to send diplomatic representatives. "That is too easy for me. Either you try to do it better yourself, or you accept the award," said geiger.

Only 96 is happy – no wins at the start of the european league

Only 96 is happy - no wins at the start of the european league

The bundesliga quartet started the group stage with four draws and was unable to confirm the strong impression made by the german soccer elite with its three opening victories in the champions league.

After a 0-0 draw against metalist kharkov and two league defeats, bayer leverkusen’s management had no intention of calling it a crisis. "You can’t talk yourself into things either. The fourth matchday is coming up and there are still a lot of games," said sporting director rudi voller before the match at borussia monchengladbach. The former full-blooded climber suffered particularly. "We have been exchanged. A draw is not what you want at home. The killer instinct was missing," said voller.

Sunday’s opponent lacked above all precision and concentration in the very last second. Oscar wendt had the rough chance to advance the gladbachers’ self-discovery process with a positive experience. The swede, however, shot the ball against the bottom of the crossbar from eleven meters a few seconds before the final whistle. The 0:0 at the premiere of the five-time german champion in the europa league and thus without a doubt a false start were perfect.

The combination of dixie and swing music attracted more than 1000 people already in the morning. "We have never had so many visitors", drescher was pleased.
The band "swing aweng" provided good entertainment and the "kulmbocher stollmusikanten". The members of the forderverein and numerous visitors took the opportunity to get in touch with people with disabilities. Dean thomas kretschmar also joined in the celebrations and enjoyed the exuberant atmosphere.
For the little visitors there was a play and games course. In the summer temperatures, water splashing was the most popular activity. The children had to play a "burning" game house looting. When enough water has been sprayed through the windows, the flames disappear.

And not a word from schulz

And not a word from schulz

You had to wait a good three hours to get a straight answer from thomas silberhorn, member of the bundestag, on why he was so interested in development aid on the 24th. September CSU should be elected. The somewhat different election campaign event, which was held in the parish hall of st. Anna in bamberg was invited to the event, which all too quickly fell into the usual rut: the main protagonist gave an introductory statement, but only once?) for 40 minutes, and in doing so, he immediately addressed a number of local hot topics. After all, silberhorn took two hours to answer questions from the audience of about 40 people.

For trust in authorities

There it was, as hardly to be expected otherwise in bamberg-east, once again about the conversion of the former u.S. Site and about the tiresome migration problems. Silberhorn appealed for trust in the responsible authorities and a little patience in dismantling the old asylum applications. The arrival and return facility in bamberg serves as a model for efficiency in dealing with the current migration problem throughout germany.

The discussion quickly moved between the low points of bamberg’s local politics and the sometimes questionable financial practices of the new york-based un. With regard to specific bamberg or other municipal matters, the parliamentary secretary of state of the federal minister for economic cooperation and development aid, who is based in hirschaid, recommended himself as a well-connected mediator between berlin and munich. And getting the united nations to be more effective is not the primary task of a french federal politician, but it is one of the most important things in the world.

Hope for a smooth start

For the four-month phase of the opening of the educational swimming pool in ahorn, the municipality has found a strong regional partner as operator in the bad rodach thermal bath service company. The municipal council cleared the way for this in a closed session on tuesday evening.

Since the beginning of the week, children from nine kindergartens and schools in the region have had to pack their bathing suits. The educational swimming pool in ahorn is completed. The revelation is organized according to a phased plan. School swimming is on the agenda for the first 14 days, before the water rescue team can resume training and the adult education center can start its courses in the teaching pool.

Before the green light could be given, a whole series of legal requirements had to be met and the remaining work had to be completed. Security took precedence over speed, emphasizes mayor martin finzel. An educational swimming pool is very different from the garden pool at home. The community of ahorn is now grateful to have gained a strong partner for the opening phase in the thermal bath service company of bad rodach, which is one of the most experienced companies in the industry with several baths throughout the whole of germany. A europe-wide invitation to tender for prescribed services will take place in the next few months. As one hort, also the bad rodacher enterprise wants to participate in it. Gb
