Handballers suffer serious em loss

And also the bundesliga keeps him the promised time for mabnahmen of the national team free.

And the man from schutterwald will be in desperate need of one. For the as a test of strength at a high level of 1. Until 3. November planned supercup threatened with cancellation. Instead of the comparisons with the top opponents sweden, poland and agypt in bremen and hamburg, we now have the preliminaries for the world cup 2015 in qatar.

The roof is completely dilapidated

In the hallway in front of the staircase behind the entrance there is a sign. "Rough work thrives only through unity", is written on it and it reflects a little of the pride with which the "house of the farmer’s wife" was built at the end of 1957 in birkach blessed and opened. To use common farm facilities, to facilitate the work of the farmers, to offer development possibilities for the local associations, storage rooms for the raiffeisen fund and for sales – everything was listed for which the then birkach municipal council had designated the building.

Over the years, the use of the building has changed somewhat, and it once housed an inn. With the territorial reform, when the former municipality of birkach was dissolved and became part of ebensfeld, the responsibility for the building was also transferred to the municipality of ebensfeld. Today, it serves as a fire station and, of course, as a meeting place for the clubs in the village. But it became clear long ago that it would have to be renovated in order to be preserved. There is also a principle behind it: there should be a community meeting place in every part of ebensfeld.

But it won’t be cheap: plans for renovation were submitted at the end of 2016. A new heating system was needed, and a stair lift was to be installed to provide barrier-free access to the hall on the second floor. New tiles were to be installed on the roof, and a dam was to be built underneath. The facade is also to be repaired and repainted.

Eggs from the storybook yard

Eggs from the storybook yard

Colorful flowers shine over the fence, a black cat sunbathes on the steps to the terrace, four pied pigs dig in the straw of their free run in the yard. The biohof dobeneck in weppersdorf is a farm straight out of a picture book. Egid dobeneck stocks his self-marketing cart with fresh eggs at the farm entrance. "The eggs from this morning were gone right away, so we have to get more", he explains. The business of organic food from the farm is going well.

Organic for over 30 years

The 66-year-old has not run his farm conventionally since 1986. At that time, he repeatedly attended lectures on organic farming. "And since I always wanted to do something new, I took this step." At a time when the organic trend of the 1970s had already subsided and the new wave since the 2010s was still a long way off, dobeneck wanted his farm to be certified by bioland. "I have never regretted this. As such a small part-time farm, we might not have survived otherwise."

With daughter michaela, the young generation took over three years ago. "Organic is all the rage. Many young people today are concerned about the environment and pay attention to their diet." But that’s not the only reason she supports her parents’ concept. It is also a matter of the heart: the animals are fed organically and have enough space, the soil and fruit are treated with care, without sprays and pollutants. All the requirements of the organic association are of course regularly monitored. "I do as little harm to nature and animals as possible. So I can enjoy the products that come out of it with a good conscience", says the 28-year-old.

Calls for monitoring the afd grow louder

Calls for monitoring the afd grow louder

The publication of an internal report with recommendations for action for the afd has further fueled the debate on whether the party should be monitored by the constitutional protection agency.

The recommendation of an expert to refrain from using terms such as "uberfremdung" and "umvolkung" in order to avoid secret service observation does not change the fact that the party must be observed, CDU politician patrick sensburg told the "handelsblatt" newspaper. "The fact that the afd wants to swap terms shows that it now wants to swap over its true contents just to avoid observation."

On friday, it became known that the legal expert dietrich murswiek, who was appointed by the afd, urgently warned the party against the use of certain terms, as these could provide evidence for observation by the constitutional protection agency. In a summary of the report, which is available to the deutsche presse-agentur and ARD, party members are also advised to avoid blanket statements such as "refugees are criminals" or "old parties are corrupt," which denigrate certain groups.

More money for the sport and protection associations

The sports and protection clubs in the district of kitzingen will receive a grant of around 146,000 euros from the state of bavaria for 2018. Compared to the previous year, the contribution receivable has increased by more than 5,000 euros. "I am very pleased that the strong volunteer commitment will be supported again this year with an increase of the so-called "vereinspauschale" by the free state," said state parliament member otto hunnerkopf, CSU, according to a press release. "Only with the honorary cooperation, which is carried out in the associations locally, the new generation demand and the sport enterprise can be ensured for all."

The high level of commitment in the sports clubs and clubs for the protection of the environment is worth a lot of money to the bavarian state government: this year, it is transferring a total of 19.79 million euros as a lump sum to support club sports operations – 1.21 million euros more than in 2017. This increase is also due to a special initiative of the CSU group. "Sports clubs do valuable work for children and young people, but also for society itself," says hunnerkopf. "The steadily increasing demand shows that we value the motivated efforts of the many volunteers and that club sports in bavaria are very important to us."

The subsidies to the sports and protection clubs will be maintained in accordance with the bavarian state government’s sports requirement guideline. This is calculated on the basis of the number of adult members of the association and the number of children, adolescents and young adults, for whom there is a tenfold weighting. Another basis for assessment is the number of practice leader licenses.
