kilometers eaten for the corona challenge

Alex schott is still amazed. "A total of 39 soccer players from rottershausen and eltingshausen walked 1,753 kilometers in just one week, says the coach of the district league team. This is roughly equivalent to a distance from rottershausen to kiev. "We were marked uber facebook of the ASV ippesheim and thus invited to participate in the corona-challenge", explains peter werner, who is in charge of the facebook page of the FC rottershausen. Each participant named a cent amount that he or she would contribute per kilometer of the total distance of all participants.

"The most diligent was marco seufert with 155.2 kilometers, closely followed by robin wilm with 151.8 kilometers. In the end, the two had quite a duel", reports schott, who has announced that he will donate ten cents per kilometer after 1000 kilometers have been run. Now it is time to relax again. "In the end, things didn’t look quite as smooth as they might have", says schott.

Marco seufert "never thought at the beginning of the week that we would all be walking so much". The beautiful weather and the daily incentive to compare himself with his teammates motivated him to run much more than usual. "After a few days, my legs got heavier and heavier. At the end of the week I was probably one of the slowest runners", tells seufert, who ran a marathon on the final day. "Maybe it was a bit of youthful recklessness. We didn’t expect such a high number of kilometers to be covered. Marco and i ran over 100 kilometers each in the last three days of the challenge," reports schott, tells wilm.

The managers were interviewed by bitkom research, the market research company of the industry association of the same name. According to hiscox, the survey is representative.

"On the one hand, it was going through the media every day that the corona crisis meant a big push for digitization," said hiscox manager marc thamm. "But home office or home schooling are just one facet of the rough IT landscape. IT service providers for the travel and event industry, for example, are not doing so well, they are just as affected as other companies."

Poll:criticism of trump's corona crisis management grows

In a poll released friday by the washington post and ABC, 60 percent said they were negative about trump’s handling of the pandemic, while only 38 percent said they supported trump’s approach. At the end of may, 53 percent were still negative and 46 percent positive. In march, a narrow majority (51 percent) had approved of trump’s action, while 45 percent had rejected it.

Trump adviser kellyanne conway attributed the drop in ratings to the fact that the president no longer appears at corona briefings. It was no coincidence that scores were higher when trump himself raised the corona virus issue, conway told reporters on friday. "The people want to hear from the president of the united states. It doesn’t have to be every day, it doesn’t have to be for two hours, but from my point of view it has to be."Trump had made two day appearances at briefings of the weiben house coronavirus task force. The working group’s briefings are now almost non-existent, and when they do take place, it is without trump.

In the survey, 63 percent said it was more important to control the spread of the virus than to revive the economy. 33 percent expressed the opposite view. At the end of may, these figures were 57 percent and 37 percent, respectively. Trump seeks return to normalcy as quickly as possible to get economy moving again, despite tens of thousands of new corona traps a day. He is running for a second term in the presidential election in november.
