thyssenkrupp threatened with exit from dax index

A racing cyclist sweeps through a hutten plant. Glowing steel sparks in the background. The thyssenkrupp logo can be seen on the bicycle frame. Steel racing bikes are the latest product from the giant empire of the ruhrgebiet corporation.

#unbreakable is a hashtag in the promotional video. But the steel and industrial group with more than 200 years of history currently looks anything but unbreakable. After red figures and repeated strategy changes, thyssenkrupp is threatened with relegation from the dax.

The german stock exchange will announce whether this will happen today after the close of trading. Group CEO guido kerkhoff is also aware that thyssenkrupp, whose predecessor thyssen is among the dax founding members, will probably have to leave the top league of german stocks. "There are more important things right now than mourning the loss of an index," he told the "spiegel" newspaper.

Asean summit: un secretary-general for more climate protection

Asean summit: un secretary-general for more climate protection

In the fight against rising global temperatures, UN secretary-general antonio guterres has called on the international community to do more to protect the climate and end the use of coal as a source of energy.

"I have been a strong advocate for more progress on carbon pricing and ensuring that there are no new coal-fired power plants by 2020," guterres said at a summit of heads of state and government of the southeast asian community of nations (asean) in bangkok. Billions of dollars of taxpayer money could not continue to be used as fossil fuel subsidies. This ultimately leads to more hurricanes, tropical diseases and conflicts.

He was particularly concerned about the impact of the many new coal-fired power plants being built in some parts of the world, such as east and sudasia, said guterres. At the same time, industrialized countries also had to help developing countries try to emit less climate-damaging gases. To avoid a climate catastrophe, much more needs to be done by everyone. Only then could temperature rise be limited to 1.5 degrees by the end of the century. A recent UN report says that sea levels are likely to rise faster than expected due to climate change. That’s why floods are threatening several asian cities.

Dfbunterspeaks admission of kfc uerdingen to the 3. League

Dfbunterspeaks admission of kfc uerdingen to the 3. League

The application of the regional league west champion for admission to the 3. The german football association’s (DFB) appeals committee will hear the case next monday, the DFB announced on wednesday evening. The background to this is an apparently untimely submission of liquid reserves, which all clubs had to deposit with the DFB by yesterday, tuesday.

"The liquid reserve of KFC uerdingen requested with the condition was received, according to the current status on tuesday, possibly only after the expiration of the exclusion period. According to the statutes, the failure to meet the deadline meant that the condition was not met and therefore no admission could be granted," the DFB statement read.

KFC immediately rejected the accusation: "in the licensing process, we have fully complied with all points, worked 100 percent transparently and correctly, and provided financial guarantees of a level that is unique in this league in germany. We have even transferred the money twice, our guarantees are impeccable and financially the strongest in the 3. League," club boss mikhail ponomarev was quoted as saying on the club’s homepage. Should KFC not be able to advance, he will end his engagement, he emphasized.

Out of the country, into the city!

Out of the country, into the city!

The idea sounds idyllic: living in the green, the peace and quiet, just birdsong – a natural living environment for daughter elena-maria (3). But when michael and anette schlosser move from wurzburg to kirchehrenbach, the young parents soon realize that "the expectations we had were not fulfilled after all. She is disappointed to note that "as a newcomer, it's hard to fit into the established social structures. It's not easy to find friends and acquaintances, he explains. "We are not club people!" The result: the schlosser family travels to forchheim more and more often – to stroll, shop and take advantage of the offers for children. This is also available in kirchehrenbach, explains the father, "but only to a limited extent. Moreover: "the way to work is shorter in the city". So what had to come was: the schlossers closed with kirchehrenbach and moved to forchheim. They bought a corner house and recently started living in the heart of the city – far away from the workplace! As far as the purchase price is concerned, michael schlosser nuchtern draws the balance: "in kirchehrenbach the prices per square meter are lower than in forchheim – but the plots of land in the countryside are too coarse and therefore also expensive at the bottom line". In addition: in the city, the land price is at least stable in value, whereas in the countryside, it is falling. "The sum of it all has told us: we fit better into the city. Here you are more flexible in every situation – even in old age"

Plea for country life

The ebert family has moved from nurnberg to the countryside. Quite deliberately. "We wanted to settle down with our children where our offspring had room to play – and where we were still close to forchheim", explains christian ebert. The place of choice is schlaifhausen, where they live in the countryside with a view of the walberla – but that's not entirely by chance: because christian ebert comes from forchheim and the plot of land in the countryside already belonged to his parents. The young family appreciates the "overly small neighborhood". Silvia ebert feels good: "we are well integrated – especially through the children". School in wiesenthau is just outside the door for son ben (7) and daughter sinja (9). "It's worth it to us, say the parents – although both have to commute to nurnberg for work. There is no reason for them to move back to the city.

Old shares can bring in a lot of money

It is only a slightly yellowed sheet of paper. An old bond that is no longer worth anything on the stock exchange.

And yet the historic paper with the original signature of the US industrialist andrew carnegie is a very special treasure: it is at least 25 years old.000 euros worth.

"This bond from 1901 has all the characteristics of a top piece of jewelry. It is rare, almost 117 years old and bears the original signature of the owner," says matthias schmitt. He is chairman of the historisches wertpapierhaus (HWPH), which auctioned these and almost 930 other old share and bond certificates to the highest bidders in wurzburg on saturday.
