The institute should explore whether and how information from the internet can help in the assessment of creditworthiness. In view of "some misunderstandings in the public" about the agreed research approach and reactions based on it, such a scientific project cannot be carried out unencumbered and with the necessary calm, explained HPI director christoph meinel on friday.

Although schufa and HPI had emphasized that this was exclusively an open-ended research project, the idea came under massive fire from politicians of all parties and data protectionists on thursday. "Schufa must not become the big brother of business," warned consumer affairs minister ilse aigner (CSU). Justice minister sabine leutheusser-schnarrenberger (FDP) also made it clear that she sees no scope for such ideas. It was already clear at this point that schufa would not be able to implement the findings of the three-year project.

Untersteinach water dispute: Eichner pulls the reibleine

Surprise in the untersteinach water dispute: by the time of the castle meeting in september, the "pressecklein must not die" initiative will have been approved let their work rest. This was confirmed by helmut bergmann (WGU) when asked by BR. "We have to consider whether it makes sense to stand up for other people. We'll wait and see what the mayor has to say at the castle meeting", he said.

This change of mind was caused by injunctions, which the ferwasserversorgung oberfranken (upper franconia water supply) worked out with a lawyer. Addressees are tobias eichner, who presents the positions of the community of interests on the internet page of "untersteinach transparent" and bernhard herrmann, who had repeatedly emphasized in a public event that the O and the engineering firm baurconsult (the firm that is working out the renovation concepts, anm.

The audience consists of hundreds of kindergarten children from kitzingen. And they might never have met the cash-rich resident of the villa kunterbunt – if it weren’t for bernhard lenz.

The kitzingen businessman, former managing partner of heinrich huppmann gmbh, together with "jungstil," the youth work department of the city of kitzingen, invited 270 children from the daycare centers in kitzingen and the surrounding areas to a morning of theater.

The colorful rainbow after the small shower perfectly matched the motto of the stammtisch "schdamberla", which had the motto "70s" on its motif wagon had. The neuses hippies campaigned for the salvation of beer. It almost seemed as if they had come to an agreement with the village community of kauernhofen.

Minetti quartet shines in the rossini hall

One can regret the move of the series from the weiben hall to the rossini hall for acoustic and atmospheric reasons, because the former is ideal for string chamber music. But it naturally excuses the observation that it would have been simply too small for the concert with the minetti quartet from austria.

Dieter eckstein makes the bomber salon-worthy

New season, new format. In the last points round, it was the matchday interview with which we got our fan community in the mood for the fubball weekend. Now there is a small modification. We always take a look back and select our player of the week, who we then ask to talk to us. For the premiere we have decided on lukas lieb from FC fuchsstadt in the national league. The 24-year-old had scored the goal of the day as a substitute striker in the 1-0 win over TG hochberg – only to see the red card in stoppage time.
