Bees are the topic at the beekeepers' corner in obermembach

He fulfilled a dream in 1978 and has been a beekeeper with body and soul ever since: klaus becker from herzogenaurach. For more than thirty years, the herzogenaurach beekeepers' association has had a small stand at the herzogenaurach old town festival, trying to bring visitors closer to the valuable work of bees and selling honey and wax products.

But he is worried, the chairman of the beekeepers association and district chairman, worried about the future of the bees. Becker recalls a statement by albert einstein: "once the bee disappears from the earth, man has only four years to live."

The honeybee is the smallest pet, but also one of the most important. Bees pollinate around 80 percent of crops and many wild plants. "The bees and other insects are indispensable to satisfy the hunger of the growing world population, because despite all the technology, agriculture depends on the pollinators. If the bees disappeared, we had a big problem", explained becker.
The reason for the deterioration lies especially in the monotony of agriculture in the region. The supply of nectar- and pollen-rich plants is severely limited by the progressive cultivation of agriculture.

Storm continues to damage wreck of

But the parts still held together. At least two more of the 900 or so containers still on board slipped into the water overnight.

Experts fear further pollution if the wreck of the 47,000-ton ship breaks completely. The "rena" disaster is the most serious environmental catastrophe that new zealand has ever experienced. High waves have been tossing the ship that crashed in october around for days. "It"s moving, but it"s not moving away from the reef," said the head of the salvage operation, drew shannon, on new zealand television. The shipwrecked ship has a heavy impact side.

Meteorologists do not foresee any improvement in the weather for the time being. The salvage work therefore had to be stopped days ago. One of the containers that slid open and the cargo of lamb meat slid into the sea. Dozens of spoiled pieces have been reeled in. Lifesavers on the beach helping to clean up the mess believe the unusually high number of sharks offshore is due to this, the bay of plenty times newspaper reported.

problems at middle east talks ahead of kerry visit

"After all these rounds of negotiations, there is still nothing concrete," abbas reportedly said at a speech the night before in ramallah.

You can read it on the traffic signs at almost every entrance to kulmbach – the max rubner institute (MRI). But hardly any kulmbacher female, what really behind it is. Among those who wanted to change this are the junior economists, who have now taken a look around the institute and the city slaughterhouse.

Max rubner (1854-1932), the man who gave his name to the federal research institute for food and nutrition, is considered the founder of modern nutrition research. Today, around 200 scientists at four locations are conducting research into healthy nutrition. In kulmbach, the focus is on meat safety and quality.

The MRI team investigates a wide variety of influences on food and plays a key role in the development of quality standards and testing methods to ensure compliance with these standards. This includes u.A. The process quality in meat production as well as the handling and processing of the products, but also the topics of safety and hygiene. In addition to the research projects, the establishment of the national reference center for authentic foods (NRZ) is currently underway. "The NRZ is an important step in the fight against fraud and falsification in the food sector", says the deputy director of the institute fredi schwagele. This not only created new jobs, but also increased the importance of kulmbach as a business location.

Tragedy and soap opera

And the director of the theater group at the jack-steinberger-gymnasium stands on the point of view: "what you want, i try to make possible." The schoolchildren also did what they could. They not only learned their lines and rehearsed, but also designed the sets; five evenings of rehearsals were wasted in the process. And they managed to "hire" the urgently needed number of male actors. "The madels have gone out and recruited mannerisms", tells ahnert. Among them were quite a few newcomers to the stage.

What is a key feature of the "stories"? Is the juxtaposition of tragedy and what are now called elements of a "soap opera has been called. "Not to kill the spab and still let the tragedy shine through is difficult", says the director. But this is exactly what the young amateur actors chuckled at. The confrontation with the content of the play, with its criticism and accusation, its mockery and the clear foresight of a gloomy time and its internalization spurs the spectator on with every scene.

The atmosphere changes with each change in the set of feelings and rituals – a challenge that the schoolchildren mastered with bravura. This is also due to the fact that the actors play their characters very distinctly, even in the smaller roles: mona munzel, for example, plays valerie, who is capricious, a little naive and yet very down-to-earth and has a strong sense of justice; nico bollwein, who plays the old-fashioned, grubby oscar in a multifaceted way; zeno scherner, who really blossoms in the role of the american. It all adds up to a coherent whole that keeps the viewer engaged and thinking.

No one wants to go to europe? - candidates languish

Self-doubt instead of self-confidence – the prospect of the rough european stage seems to have lamed rather than inspired the bundesliga clubs in recent weeks.

The race for the sporting and financially lucrative european cup places has become a snail race. A comparison of the performances of nine bundesliga clubs in contention for champions league and european league spots reveals some surprising facts.

FC bayern munchen, who can clinch the championship as early as easter, and the reinvigorated defending champions borussia dortmund were left behind in an analysis by the dpa news agency. For the BVB is clearly heading for the vice championship. For the chasers, the third (direct champions league qualification), fourth (champions league playoff), fifth and sixth (european league) places remain. Depending on the outcome of the DFB cup, seventh place may also be enough.

The SPD city council faction is critical of the recent political debates in the city. Particularly in view of next year’s election for mayor, faction leader reiner buttner wanted "factual work and not a permanent election campaign". As a citizen, you can get "dizzy". Almost every topic in the city council "is staged as an apocalyptic problem by an alliance of tacticians and doomsayers". However, after the verbal blows against the city administration and the mayor had been dealt, "resolutions were passed almost unanimously".

The SPD parliamentary group is looking forward to entering the municipal election campaign with mayor uwe kirschstein. But now we have to worry about the construction sites in forchheim. According to buttner, this is because "the problems have not been named and dealt with for years and now the impression is being created that they have only recently arisen due to negligence.

Praise for the master plan

Example of the renovation backlog in the city’s properties: "it was caused because too little was done for decades in terms of building maintenance." The city administration had now worked out a master plan with the city council. Part of this is the consideration of which use should take place in which building. From the point of view of SPD city councilor anita kern, this is the right approach. "Only when the state of affairs is known, the right decisions can be made."

Cheaper and more exciting: corona forces f1 to rethink its approach

In deep concern for formula 1 and its entire full-throttle world, the head of the automotive world association calls for a radical rethink.

"What we need is a complete rethink of motorsport". "We could talk about a new deal, like the one america had after the world economic crisis," fia president jean todt was quoted as saying in the association’s youngest magazine. Michael schumacher’s former ferrari team boss says the corona standstill also threatens the future of his premium formula 1 product. At the same time, however, the crisis could also be an opportunity for radical reforms in the racing series.

This was a "painful" process, says formula 1 sports boss ross brawn. "But i think we’ll come out of this stronger if we can get through it," adds the 65-year-old nicknamed the "mastermind". Formula 1 is to become more cost-efficient, fairer and more efficient. Closer to the fan, more exciting and supposedly even more climate-friendly. All of this is what liberty media wanted to do before the covid 19 pandemic, but now the need for rapid change is much more severe.

Untermerzbacher csu always played a special role

The struggle for the foundation of the district in the course of the territorial reform sounded on its periphery on saturday evening: "untermerzbach is not a municipality like any other and neither is the CSU local association. What they have done has also helped lower franconia and they have become an important bastion for us in the east." This emphasized secretary of state a.D. Dr. Albert meyer as keynote speaker at the 40th. Jubilee of the CSU local association in the reisenweber hall.

At that time, smart burghers had established local associations everywhere, and in untermerzbach, the CSU had done the groundwork. 21 citizens were at the founding meeting, of which 19 became members. Erich grell was elected chairman of the board, and fritz muller and friedrich hohn his deputies.

Important bastion in the east
Meyer spoke of a turbulent time due to the territorial reform, which had been drastic and had also led to unrest among the population. But without doubt it was urgently needed.

Christian martin leaves fc burk in summer

Having come with rough expectations, reality has taught us better: in the summer, the paths of the 1. FC burk and its coach christian martin separate again. At the start of training on tuesday, the coach informed those responsible and the team – at least those parts that are still there. "I came here in the summer under completely different conditions and am therefore deeply disappointed by the current situation. That’s why I have decided to take a new path for the coming season at the latest", says the 48-year-old. "I want to finish the season with burk properly, I’m not one to let the club and players down. On the other hand i have to say that it makes little sense at the moment."

Seven players are gone

That the second half of the season will be better than the dismal first half with only two points is not to be expected at the moment. During the winter, seven more players left the team – four from the first team, three from the reserve team. There are no newcomers. What remains is a rump squad of about twelve men. A race to catch up, which may even end with the class preservation, would be in view of this a medium miracle. "The first goal will be to keep the game going, the team will be a mix of first, reserve and old men", so martin.

The club is thus facing an uncertain future, the gang in the district class is hardly still to prevent. "We were very happy to continue with christian martin. In my opinion, he is the best coach we have ever had in burk", says FC head of department frank gareus, but knows that there are hardly any arguments for keeping last year’s TSV kirchehrenbach promotion coach. "I must apologize to him for what has happened to us in this half year. The coach can do the least for our sporting situation. His decision to try something new is absolutely understandable. We give him credit for the fact that he still wants to go through with this half year. That speaks for his character", says gareus.
