With 'rocky' into the blue hour

There is a special blue in the sky that can be seen between dawn and sunset. Chansonniers refer to it, novelists too. Blue hour – the blue hour is suitable for concerts or at least as a program title. Like on thursday evening in the gymnasium of the meranian high school, while the sky was anything but blue.

But what brightened the spirits of the visitors from 7 p.M. Onwards was the concert by the MGL big band under the direction of iris arnal. In the end the big band should even become a very big band. The meranian high school not only has a great jazz band, but also a decent offspring of people interested in a style of music that emerged in the 1920s.

Blue program sheet

So for the last numbers after the break, even students from the lower school joined them on stage, until even a cast of 37 was reached. The blue program sheet for the blue hour, displayed near the gymnasium gym, featured lots of tunes rewritten for the big band style and written after the 1920s. Like "gonna fly now, bill conti’s world-famous hymn to the rocky movies. A great introduction, which gave a foretaste of the passion with which the at this point 23-headed big band would manage the evening.

Ebersbach community center is filled to capacity

Half of the town came – a unique reception for the FT event "at home". Editor josef hofbauer had an easy job moderating the evening, because ebersbach offers enough topics to talk about – from wind power to the west bypass, from youth clubs to club friends. Local councillor wilhelm schmitt (GDG) took advantage of the situation and collected donations for a last plantation. 900 euros were collected in no time at all.
Neunkirchen's mayor heinz richter (G) was also pleased with the good attendance, after being criticized in the town council for the dimensions of the building: "it's great that the room is full to capacity even before the inauguration." His wish: that the church would be just as full on sunday for the festive service.

W-questions occupy the burghers

He had been a bit queasy before the evening in ebersbach. Heinz richter, the mayor of neunkirchen, did not expect a standing ovation for his person – despite the joy in the district over the new community center, which the market community helped to finance to a large extent. Not all of ebersbach's worries have been eliminated by any means with the gebaude. Fire department commander jurgen braun's wish to finally get a replacement for the 1969 fire truck is the smallest of his problems. The W-questions are much trickier: wind turbine and west bypass.

Mourning for heinz losert

The fubballers in the lichtenfels district mourn heinz losert, who died this week at the age of 69. Losert lived in mistelfeld and is survived by his wife anna.

He is known to the people of lichtenfels as a long-time employee of the city, where he worked for 37 years. When he retired in 2014, he was foreman of the building yard.

Heinz losert was well known to soccer players as a player and, after his active career, as a player trainer and coach. His open, friendly manner made him a popular guy in the district, who attended games at district level until the end and was always a sought-after interlocutor there.

When children from the coburg region.If you want to hand over your christmas wish list directly to the christ child, then you have the opportunity to do so today, 18. November, in lauscha a unique opportunity: under the umbrella of the european metropolitan region nurnberg and the regional management coburger land takes place on this day in the birthplace of the glass christmas tree ball and in the heart of the christmas land coburg.Rennsteig the 1. Christkinder symposium held. Nearly two dozen sky messengers are preparing for their upcoming term of office.

Bring a wish list

While the christ child symposium is rather hard work for the young ladies, it could be an occasion for great joy for children from the coburg, sonneberg, rennsteig region. Because at 16.30 o'clock there is in the vocational school for glass in lauscha, bahnhofsstrabe 56, the possibility to hand over a personal christmas wish list to the christmas children. And firmly promised: every letter to the christian children will be answered, it says in a press release.
The organizers ask for understanding that there is no possibility to get in touch with the christkinder beforehand: "the program is really very packed, almost like a school day", explains kimberley bauschat, who has been busy preparing the event for weeks. But many of the christkinder will come afterwards to the huttenplatz in lauscha and illuminate there together with mayor norbert zitzmann and other celebrities the rough christmas tree of the town.

Verdi negotiates with ryanair about german flight attendants

The trade union verdi says it will begin negotiations this wednesday on a national collective bargaining agreement with the irish low-cost carrier.

The central demands include a substantial pay increase, verdi announced in berlin on monday. Due to seasonal fluctuations and a lack of flight hour guarantees, even some full-time employees could only receive up to 1,000 euros gross per month as a base salary.

"This is completely unacceptable," said federal board member christine behle. Ryanair must also recognize german social law on continued pay in the event of illness. Verdi also wants to tackle temporary work, loaned labor and short-term transfers.

Bavaria basketball players want to end cup curse

The time is ripe: at the top-four tournament for the german basketball cup, the FC bayern munchen hoopers want to end their 50-year curse and take home the trophy for the second time since 1968.

"We have to be mentally ready for the weekend and focus on ourselves," said bayern coach sasa djordjevic ahead of the semifinals against host ratiopharm ulm this saturday (16.00 a.M.).

Since 1993, basketball players have won the cup in a four-team tournament, with ALBA berlin and medi bayreuth also hoping to win this time in neu-ulm. "Bringing home a cup is always great," said ALBA pro luke sikma, who will play in the second semifinal duel on saturday (19.00 o’clock) is called for.

Attentive motorists in particular noticed it immediately in weismain on friday, shortly after 10 a.M.: after around two years of construction work, the road works department employees had removed the barrier signs from the new bypass.

The traffic on the bypass road in weismain was now able to move, because the traffic circles had been completed, the traffic lights had been installed and all the other signage had been created in such a way that a "new era" had begun of the road traffic in weismain could begin.

This will not only be appreciated by road users, as first mayor udo dauer said, but especially by drivers for whom the "upper gate" has always been an unbridgeable obstacle always represented an unbridgeable obstacle: farmers with their heavy tractors and all truck drivers.

Berlin: policeman (54) dragged along seventy meters on the run - almost 12 years in prison for thief

A car thief who dragged and seriously injured a berlin police officer as he fled has been sentenced to eleven and a half years in jail. The regional court sentenced the 29-year-old man on monday (19. March 2018) guilty, among other things, of attempted murder. The thief had recognized that a human was attached to the vehicle he had just stolen, but had stripped it and tried to escape, the judges found. The 54-year-old police officer was so severely injured in the attack in berlin-lichtenberg in august 2015 that he is still not fit for duty today.

Defendant had confessed

The court's verdict went beyond the prosecutor's request, which had called for nine years and six months in prison for attempted manslaughter, among other charges. The defense counsel had not made a specific request for punishment, the defendant had confessed.

He was like in a tunnel and under the influence of drugs, the man explained. He was also found guilty of gang theft, hit-and-run and resisting arrest. In addition, the court imposed a four-year driver's license suspension and ordered the defendant to be placed in a detention center after serving part of his sentence.

Two wins until the world championship - dbb team also dreams of the olympics

There is no sign of nervousness among the german basketball players ahead of the first match balls in the world championship qualifiers.

"Now come the two games that make the figures. We can go into this with a broad chest," says NBA pro maximilian kleber: "we want to get two wins, of course."With take place on thursday (18.00 a.M.) in estonia and three days later in leipzig against israel (6 p.M.).00 a.M.) the team has won a ticket to the 2019 world championships in china ahead of schedule. For the generation filled with outstanding talents it should be an intermediate step on the way to the olympic games.

"The goal of everyone here is tokyo 2020. That’s where we all want to be," said NBA young star dennis schroder. The german basketball association (DBB) team has missed the olympics twice, and at the 2014 world championships in spain it was only a spectator. But a lot has happened in the last few years. After last year’s quarterfinal exit from the european championship, national coach henrik rodl took over and led the team to six victories in six world cup qualifiers. Even vice world champions and olympic runners-up serbia were defeated twice.

When the t-shirt is the intestine

An eavesdropping attack through one’s own T-shirt? This idea comes to mind when you look at the unusual garment into which eight microphones have been sewn. But in the development of dr. Sarah fischer, assistant physician at the medical clinic 1 for gastroenterology, pneumology and endocrinology at the university hospital erlangen, it is not a police but a medical surveillance method. For the "gastro-digitalshirt" records the wearer’s bowel movements for several days or weeks, providing valuable data for the doctors treating the patient. They can, for example, evaluate treatment methods for chronic inflammatory bowel diseases or irritable bowel syndrome, according to a press release from the university.

For her development, sarah fischer has now been awarded the DGVS innovation prize "digital gastroenterology" by the german society for gastroenterology, digestive and metabolic diseases the "gastro-digital" award, which was presented for the first time this year.

Diagnostics to be expanded

Long-term recording of acoustic abdominal signals is expected to provide insights into the state and processes of the gastrointestinal tract of healthy subjects and especially of people with chronic diseases and to expand non-invasive diagnostics of gastrointestinal disorders. "With our project, we have also created the basis for evaluating individual everyday behavior in terms of its influence on the development of disease.", explains sarah fischer. "This makes it possible for us to develop personal risk management strategies together with the individual concerned.".
