Teachers become “internet experts

Teachers become 'internet experts

In order for teachers to be able to explain the world of the internet to children, they must first understand it themselves. That’s why there was a training session at the rodachtal elementary school that showed 21 teachers how simple it can be in practice and how versatile it is in application.

“As the only school in the kronach district that cooperates with the “knowledge factory”, we are proud to be able to offer such a training course.” principal annegret hummrich-korm didn’t miss a beat that afternoon, tried out many things herself, looked over the shoulders of others with curiosity. Six individual modules were offered by instructor olivera haas, which could be worked through. But first, everyone played the role of “internet savvy” together and staged a role play with cardboard models. It was a very simple way to understand how the internet works.

That the melody of “hanschen klein could also be any swarm of bees, principal karin hader was not at all surprised. They had succeeded in developing the minicomputer “calliope” to program it so that it would execute the steps and actually play the song.

Children at the diakonie daycare center have a screaming garden

A first small harvest can the children of the kindergarten st. Stephan has already experienced this: an apple hangs from one of the freshly planted apple trees in the new nursery garden. A kindergarten leasing a plot in an allotment garden is a unique thing in franconia", gunter diller of the bamberg city youth welfare office remarked at the inauguration ceremony. He brought the children a sack of seed potatoes so that the harvest will be more abundant next season.

The kindergarten team wanted to give the children a hands-on experience of nature, how something grows and passes away in this garden. "We will be taking a group of children here on vacation from our inner-city daycare center, so to speak", is veronika schieber, who runs the kindergarten st. Stephan leads. She also had the idea for the shrine garden project.

Schieber thanked all the supporters, such as the kindergarten’s "forderverein", which collected donations of 4,300 euros, and the "sendelbach" allotment garden association, who had the courage to lease a plot to a kindergarten; to the kolping vocational school students who planted the garden; to the neighbors who welcomed the kindergarten to the allotment with new plants as a gift, and to the other donors and helpers.

Syrian opposition gets more money – weapons still disputed

Syrian opposition gets more money - weapons still disputed

Syria’s moderate opposition gets more money to resist strongman baschar al-assad after clear rejection of terrorism. U.S. Secretary of state john kerry announced on sunday, after a meeting of the most important countries of the syria friends group with the rebels in istanbul, a doubling of american aid to 250 million u.S. Dollars (about 191 million euros). Germany increases its support by 15 million to 145 million euros.

Even after the meeting in istanbul, the group of friends still disputes whether assad’s opponents should also receive weapons from the west in the future. For germany, this is still taboo, according to federal minister guido westerwelle (FDP). EU partners such as great britain and france, on the other hand, are pushing hard to stop the european union’s ban on deliveries, which is still in place until the end of may.

The embargo will also be the subject of a meeting of EU foreign ministers in luxembourg this monday. Countries such as saudi arabia and qatar are already supplying weapons. Opponents of this practice argue that the weapons could end up in the wrong hands – that is, in the hands of the increasingly powerful jihadists in the country.

Traffic police: waldgrundstuck near bamberg remains favorite

traffic police: waldgrundstuck near bamberg remains favorite

The dispute over the hauptsmoor forest is shaping up to be a tough one. The bavarian ministry of the interior has reaffirmed its commitment to the controversial site at moosstrabe for the construction of the new traffic police station (VPI). Neither the tank washing area nor an extension of the existing buildings on schildstrabe are acceptable solutions from the point of view of the free state.

If a new police station were to be built on the planned site, almost three hectares of forest would have to be felled – a horror scenario for many in bamberg. The intersection of moosstrabe and armystrabe is the main access to the hauptsmoorwald recreation area, and is equally popular with walkers, cyclists and joggers.

"The real estate state of bavaria had already been in talks with the city of bamberg since 2013 with a view to acquiring a plot of land for a traffic police station on the conversion site." Several alternative sites have been chosen, such as the tank washing area, emphasizes martin scholtysik, spokesman for the ministry of the interior. During the voting, however, it became clear that the site in the main moorland forest was not suitable "for police tactical and construction reasons" is suitable and has a good highway connection.

Opel reorganization plan: compromise instead of a clear cut

Opel reorganization plan: compromise instead of a clear cut

Delicate passages such as plant closures or job cuts no longer appear in the concept with which opel wants to get back on the road to success after billions in losses in recent years. It remained open when the profit zone would be reached. In order to reduce expensive overcapacities, models such as the small SUV mokka, the antara or the agila will roll off the production line in europe instead of in korea in the past. Observers expect that models of the french partner peugeot-citroen could also be built at opel. The company rejects this so far as speculation.

In his plan, stracke is selling a lot of old wine in new bottles: he announced an investment offensive that his predecessor nick reilly had already presented. The "new export strategy" is also described by observers as unambitious and is essentially already known.

At least, unlike in march, when stracke’s first management plan was rejected by the supervisory board, the supervisory board now approved the strategy. Stracke has thus broken through the long entrenched fronts between GM management in detroit and the unions and store stewards in europe. "The plan adopted today paves the way for a strong future for opel," said GM vice chairman and opel supervisory board chairman stephen girsky. General motors is behind opel.

Amnesty: agypt police brutal as under mubarak

Amnesty: agypt police brutal as under mubarak

This is the conclusion of a report published tuesday in cairo by the international human rights organization amnesty international on violence by police officers and soldiers.

It says president mohammed mursi and the new government had so far done nothing about the widespread mistreatment of protesters and detainees. The human rights activists also give a poor report card to the supreme military council, which took over power for 16 months after mubarak’s forced resignation in february 2011.

The report gives examples of protesters who were electrocuted and sexually humiliated. Police and soldiers had responded to protests with "excessive force" on several occasions, it says. By doing so, they had provoked the death of dozens of demonstrators, denounces amnesty.

Lander: no detention pending deportation in normal prisons

Lander: no detention pending deportation in normal prisons

According to a survey, only a few state governments can imagine housing detainees awaiting deportation in normal prisons.

A draft law of the federal government, which is to be discussed in the bundestag, provides for such a possibility. However, this would only be allowed if the prisoners who are obliged to leave the country are housed separately from the prisoners who are in jail.

A survey by the "mediendienst integration" has shown that 11 out of 16 federal states do not intend to make use of this option in principle. Six of them raise legal concerns. Baden-wurttemberg, bremen, north rhine-westphalia and saarland have no capacity in their prisons anyway. However, the survey also shows that the low number of available deportation places is seen as a problem by the majority of state governments. Nine states are planning to build new facilities or expand existing ones.

Del-start at the beginning of november at the earliest

Del-start at the beginning of november at the earliest

"There is now a circulating resolution for a seasonal start not before 1. November," DEL managing director gernot tripcke told the trade magazine "eishockey news". The final decision is to be made this week, but is a formality, according to tripcke.

Last week, the DEL denied rumors that the new season would begin on 31 december. October is to begin. In fact everything now points to a later start. Due to the german cup planned for the beginning of november in krefeld (5. And 8. November) the start of the season could rather be postponed further.

Unlike in fubball, the clubs are much more dependent on spectator income. Games without an audience in view of the corona crisis are only feasible for the DEL for a short period of time. Tripcke says league plans "almost normal game schedule" despite late start. However, it is conceivable to reduce the playoff series to the "best of five" mode.
