Altenburg needs a new emergency access road

Altenburg needs a new emergency access road

The rinnersteig, which leads from wildensorger strabe up to altenburg, has for years fulfilled its function as an emergency access road to the bamberger landmark only to a limited extent. The street, which is closed to the public, is located in an active area of slippage and is becoming increasingly unsafe and narrow because its upper edge is visibly collapsing. The altenburgverein, as the lord of the castle, has therefore been calling for a second, safe access road for some time in case the regular access road via altenburger strabe is blocked. After a landslide many years ago this was the case.

For walkers, the city created a forest path in spring 2011 that branches off from the rinnersteig and leads to the castle at a safe distance past the quarry edge. Now the city's construction department is proposing to widen this road and make it load-bearing enough so that it can also be used by tanker and rescue vehicles in an emergency. If the nature conservation advisory council agrees to the associated encroachment on the burgwald forest, the forest road could be upgraded so that tanker and rescue vehicles can drive over it.

Nine trees are expected to fall. As a balance is talked about. Parts of the rinnersteig roadway to be renaturalized.

Infiana is now becoming “very british

Infiana is now becoming

Johannes hollein four weeks ago, when frankischer tag last inquired with infiana group gmbh about an imminent sale, those responsible were still stonewalling, unwilling to comment concretely on possible takeover negotiations. Nevertheless, it was clear: where there's smoke, there's fire – it was only a matter of time before the film factory in forchheim and the branch in the usa would have a new owner.

Now the competitor has been found: as the listed company deutsche beteiligungs-AG (DBAG), which invested exactly 23.7 million euros in infiana in december 2014 and has a 92.7 percent stake in the company, announced, it is selling its shares to pamplona capital management, a financial investor based in the uk. Corresponding contracts were signed last week. Provided the antitrust authorities approve the transaction, it is expected to be completed within the next three months. The parties to the agreement have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The right time

The sale does not come as a surprise, as a look at DBAG's business model makes clear: "the company invests in well-positioned medium-sized companies with development potential. As a partnership-oriented financial investor, we typically accompany our portfolio companies and their development process for four to seven years. We are pursuing the goal of increasing the value of the companies. By terminating the investment at the appropriate time and in a well-coordinated manner, we realize the value enhancement of the portfolio companies. They will then continue their development in a different constellation…", can be read on the DBAG homepage.

Marchenbuch and motorsage

As a child, i loved the tales of the grimm brothers. The worn book with the bright cover is still in my bookshelf, and many of the endlessly listened records i can still repeat by heart in parts.

It was only over the years that i noticed that the gebruder grimm… Yes, what actually: have told tales! A fake, a lie, without any connection to reality! Because let’s be honest: as a witch, you have to be very imaginative to steam your house in the forest with pepper cake, when it’s much easier and cheaper with polyurethane and a k-subsidy.

Parents must have neglected their little daughter’s regular eye examinations in order for her vision to be so blurred that she cannot distinguish a wolf’s face from the lady’s beard of her grandmother.

Olivia jones keeps her bein bones in a casket

Olivia jones keeps her bein bones in a casket

Hamburg drag queen olivia jones (49) has kept a special souvenir from her leg shortening in 2017. "I have the bone fragments that i had removed in a jar of alcohol in my kitchen," jones told the german press agency in hamburg.

"I thought no one would believe you anyway. Then you must have these bones. And the operator also found this very funny." That look like a soup bone. "I find this quite interesting. There is hardly anyone else who has his own bone in the kitchen."

She can’t spoil her appetite with that, because jones has transformed her kitchen into a styling and peruke room. "I can’t cook and i prefer to leave that to the professionals on st. Pauli. We have so many restaurants here. I can have a different cultural meal every day. And that is great."

Afd faction vice-chairman does not want hocke on party executive committee

Afd faction vice-chairman does not want hocke on party executive committee

The deputy chairman of the afd parliamentary group, peter felser, did not like to see thuringian right-wing defender bjorn hocke on the new party executive committee.

The afd intends to hold a delegates’ party congress in hanover on 2. December elections for a new federal executive committee. Since frauke petry left the party at the end of september, the sole chairman has been jorg meuthen, head of the baden-wurttemberg state parliamentary group.

Baiersdorfers look after their children in containers

Baiersdorfers look after their children in containers

The childcare situation in baiersdorf is improving. There are only eight children over the age of three who need a place in the fall and four daycare children. However, another five children are registered as of january. For this reason, the city is setting up a mixed-age group starting in september, which can be divided into two groups depending on the growth of the population.
It is accommodated up to the completion of a kindertagesstatte in containers on the wellerstadter playground. This was already used during the new construction of the kindergarten blumenstrabe so.

Purchase instead of rental container

After a cost comparison by the administration, the council decided by majority vote to buy it. The purchase price of 580,000 euros corresponds to the rent over a period of four years. The containers will certainly be needed for a long time. Because not only is the city building another kindergarten, the protestant church also wants to at least rebuild its facility.
But whether the containers will really be used on 1. September already standing, is still open. This depends on the availability on the market. If not, according to mayor andreas galster (CSU), the new group will have to be accommodated for a few weeks in the multipurpose room of the kindergarten blumenstrabe.
The new kindergarten should be built quickly, the city council has set itself the target. The city-owned land between igelsdorf and hut – the fastest option – had been rejected because of its location in the middle of the corridor. The administration has therefore asked a number of landowners over the past few weeks whether they would be willing to sell their land for this purpose. The answers were mainly positive. Galster presented the possible sites. From the point of view of time frame, the plots of land of the evangelisches siedlungswerk east of the reichelgrundstuck in the hut are out of the question. Although the non-profit organization wants to develop its property, it still needs several years to do so. Galster sees here no completion of the kindergarten within five years. The same applies to a plot of land opposite the senivita facility. Here, an investor who wants to integrate a kindergarten into the storey building is still negotiating with the owners. The municipal plot next to the traffic circle in the direction of hagenau is sufficient from the flat. But it is an architectural challenge because of the proximity to the street. In addition, there is the burden of traffic.This is not the case with a plot of land for sale on birkenweg in igelsdorf. It is located in the area of the land use plan, so that a procedural part for the building permit is omitted. In order to connect the land to the roads, the partially built-up birch road had to be extended to the old county road on the southern edge of the hat. This also allowed the development of part of the land of the settlement plant. By a vote of 15 to four, the council decided to pursue this option further.

China sanctions us companies over arms deal with taiwan

china sanctions us companies over arms deal with taiwan

China imposes sanctions on american companies involved in u.S.’S latest arms deal with taiwan.

In peking, the spokesman for the ministry of agriculture, geng shuang, said that the rust supplies were a "serious violation" of the agreements between china and the united states and undermined china’s sovereignty and national security. "To protect national interests, china will impose sanctions on u.S. Companies involved in arms sales with taiwan." He did not give details of the punitive measures at first.

The communist leadership regards the democratic island republic as part of the people’s republic, although taiwan has never been part of it. Also, peking threatens to conquer by force, against which taiwan wants to resist with its weapons. The shipment of rusted goods further strains relations between the two major economies, already strained by the U.S. Trade war with china.

However, the postage increases at the beginning of the year, booming internet trade and the flourishing international express business ensured at least a slight increase in sales for the group.

The group has made a "solid start to the year" in view of the economic turbulence, group ceo frank appel stressed in the quarterly report presented on tuesday.

Overall, revenue rose by 0.6 percent between january and march to 13.4 billion euros. By way of comparison: in 2012 as a whole, the group had still managed to achieve growth of more than 5 percent.
