Hardly any weddings: 'a whole industry has no income'

They set up a meter-long wedding table in front of the city hall on marienplatz and placed their action under the motto "stand up for love!".

"The wedding industry has come to a standstill with the start of corona," said munich wedding planner doreen winking, who helped organize the protest action. "The relaxations that are coming are not enough for us"." All of the twelve weddings it was supposed to organize this year have been cancelled.

Companies and businesses suffer from the dramatic consequences of the corona crisis. Travel agencies and bus companies are also affected – not only in germany.

Monika max from the TUI travel center in hochstadt reports: "each of our three branches is affected. Whether a large or a small travel agency – it is now necessary to work together in the industry." Every travel agency struggles with the same problems. "Many travel agencies suspect that they are already insolvent", says max. But at the moment no one has an overview of the true extent of the crisis. "For our team, the direct contact to our customers is currently in the foreground. This includes a huge number of unsettled customers whose vacation trip is about to begin. But also a large number of those who are currently abroad and are also very unsettled", max continues. "Divided between emergency services and home office, our madels are currently giving their all to meet all questions."

Sophia liebschner scores points at season opener

The very demanding course with many fast changes of direction was in top condition and demanded everything from the riders.
In the junior class, the bar for lap times was set very high and did not make it easy for selina liebschner to qualify as a rookie. After a hard fight for the best qualifying time, the older of the two sisters placed 20th for the A-final.

Selina is still paying a lesson
So it was a matter of learning from the others and learning from them. In both runs she also finished in 20th place.
Things were no less tight in the beginners' class. Eleven-year-old sophia put in some clean laps in the qualifying round and placed her bike in position 15.

Plenty of

One-third of elementary school students leave school without knowing how to swim safely. However, this does not apply to the lucas cranach school, where there are hardly any unsafe swimmers in the fourth grade. This is largely thanks to the "safe swimmers" project, in which the school participates.
In this prevention campaign by the DLRG youth of bavaria with the AOK bavaria and the bavarian ministry of health, over three quarters of the third and fourth graders achieved the bronze youth swimming badge at the end of the pilot phase and thus became safe swimmers. This impressive figure had already been topped in kronach in the past. This year, a record number of seahorses, bronze and silver badges as well as – with exceptional talent kilian wegner – even a junior rescuer badge could be handed over to the participating 120 children at the closing event in the school gymnasium. The junior rescuer is the "first rough draft" at the DLRG, which can be acquired from the age of ten. Kilian is the reigning upper franconian champion in rescue swimming in his age group.

Strong as a team, too

Together with his swimming colleagues pauline wittmann, klara dunst, eva hauck, lina kufner, max hausmann, aaron muller and lovis ehrsam, he is also a member of the winning team of the lucas cranach school, which won the district swimming competition of the elementary schools.
Impressed by all the super achievements, kronach's mayor wolfgang beiergroblein also showed his appreciation in his function as deputy county councilor. Together with teachers, representatives of the AOK coburg and the married couple marliese and richard bar, he presented the badges. "Knowing how to swim is extremely important. It can save your own life, but also that of your friends", he appealed.
Monika fabiani from the DLRG youth bavaria was pleased to be able to take part in such a closing event for the first time in her new function as head of the youth secretariat. The project can only work if all those involved work well together. "Without local volunteers, 'safe swimmers' would not exist", explained the youth secretary. Bar passed on the praise to the children, who were very eager to participate.
The "safe swimmer" campaign could be extended to over 40 schools in bavaria this school year.

Google revises search algorithm

The new algorithm can better analyze the connection between individual words in a search query. He could thus classify a sentence instead of searching for keywords alone.

The new search algorithm has already been in use for more than a month. The formula determines which websites are displayed in which order in a google search. "It’s less about how a website performs overall — it’s about how well a page matches the query," google said, describing the update. The new coat of paint was announced by google to coincide with the company’s 15. Birthday of the company. The presentation took place in the garage where sergey brin and larry page laid the foundation stone for the company in 1998.

The weightlifter is the roughest

Torsten zehner can say exactly what he likes best about weightlifting: "i can measure my performance precisely there," says anton butz, says the 36-year-old. He has been an active lifter for 15 years at the kitzingen strength sports club (KSV) and was awarded the bronze badge of honor for this on friday. But that's not all, because tenner has won twice this year. He was also named sportsman of the year.

If you look at the achievements of the 36-year-old, you will see that he was right to receive this award: he won gold at the bavarian championships, came 4th in the world, and was the first to win the world championship. At the german championships, 4. At the european championships and 5. At the world championships.

Farewell to

After one year in berlin and three years in kronach, doris werner came to the kindergarten in nordhalben. "At the beginning of my work I worked for half a year with the well-known sister sigrada", said doris werner. "When I was offered the leadership position a little later, I had to take additional exams at the technical academy for social pedagogy in regensburg.", doris werner remembers the beginning of her work in 1973. After that, the kindergarten in nordhalben was officially recognized for the first time.

Frugality was the top priority at that time. You hardly had any toys – and the equipment was also outdated. With the support of the parents, but also of the associations in nordhalben, the equipment could be gradually expanded and a valuable pedagogical environment could be created.

15,000 copper nails hold the slate

"Renovating the roof of the town hall really wasn’t a luxury," said mayor peter kornell (G) at monday’s town council meeting. After a good six months of construction, the renovation of the town hall roof is now complete. During construction work, it became apparent that several beams were rotten and water was seeping through the roof in numerous places.

With the help of light pictures, architect roland schicker served the city council members the various construction phases, which began in may with the removal of the old slates. Because the slate contained asbestos, it had to be disposed of permanently. The roof beam was then uncovered. The carpenters replaced the damaged beams. Even before the roof could be re-roofed, a storm caused water damage to the building. According to kornell, strong gusts of wind had torn away the protective tarpaulins and allowed moisture to seep in. "We got off lightly," says the city leader. It had rained ten liters per square meter.

What a pity, thinks the young resident. Too bad there was no strike. That might have been more effective. He and his colleagues at the kitzinger land clinic had been entitled to strike on thursday – had the marburger bund not reached an agreement with the employers after all. The doctor wished to remain anonymous. On the one hand, because he speaks for many, not only for himself. On the other hand, to be able to express his opinion openly. He thinks that things are going very badly for hospital doctors.

Theory and practice

When wind becomes electricity

"We didn't expect so many children to sign up" , nina werner from the municipal utility was amazed. As part of the vacation program, she had organized an "energy expedition camp" with external support from verena schmitt and meike eck organized and had to turn down a dozen children because there were only 30 experiment stations on the former "zaak gebaude" in the wurzburger strabe for grouting stood.
They, however, were professionally equipped with all the tools needed to turn children from six to 13 into true energy experts. Buttons with the first names of the children were created, and that was the "energy certificate".

Full of energy, the children looked for the different ways to generate electricity after a short introduction. With small games, it was shown how electricity flows, and the children quickly understood what color a plus pole has, how the cables have to be connected together, how the measuring devices work and how many volts ultimately come out of the socket.
