Obama rolls out heavy protection against romney

Obama rolls out heavy protection against romney

"The more americans see of mitt romney, the less they like him and the less they trust him," it rapped in an email sent out by obama’s campaign team on tuesday night after republican ex-senator rick santorum surrendered. Romney, a multimillionaire, now has the best chance of being nominated by his party as a challenger in the november election.

The obama camp accused romney of trying to buy the presidency by spending millions on negative campaign ads. Romney and groups alongside him had relentlessly and successfully attacked opponents with expensive negative ads during the primary campaign.

In an appearance at palm beach gardens (florida), obama explained that the race was a clash of two completely different political "visions". In the election, there was the biggest contrast between the candidates in five decades, he said, without directly mentioning romney by name. He stands for a socially just society in which "everybody gets a fair shake," obama said. If, on the other hand, the republicans had their way, "fewer and fewer people would be doing very, very well – but more and more would be struggling to survive. According to recent polls, obama has been able to extend his lead over romney.

Claudia roth and her joke about speaking too long

Claudia roth and her joke about speaking too long

Actually, everything would have been said in six words on sunday at the nordheim oko-winery rothe: "others the world: it needs it," is how claudia roth, vice president of the german bundestag, sums up the greun’s message at the end of her remarks. Quoting poet bertold brecht from her swabian homeland.

Six words may have been enough, but if you invite claudia roth to a campaign appearance, like barbara pfeuffer, the direct candidate for the schweinfurt/kitzingen electoral district, you know: it’s going to take a long time, a lot longer. "I’ve talked too long, i’ve put a lot of strain on them," the former federal chairwoman of the grunen thinks, and has to laugh when someone in the audience shouts "yes".

Laughing at self-irony

The 62-year-old’s quick-witted answer underscores why she was rightly awarded the kitzingen limp-wristed medal in 2014.

Guest beds better utilized

Solid bed balance: the district of erlangen-hochstadt had exactly 425031 overnight stays last year – 3.4 percent more than in 2016. This is the message of the union nahrung-genuss-gaststatten. The NGG nurnberg-furth refers to figures from the statistical office of the federal state of germany.

NGG demands strong wage increase

"Local hotels and guesthouses have been experiencing a boom for several years now", says NGG managing director regina schleser. "The fact that visitors like to come to us, but is also the merit of the employees in the hotel and catering industry. They work hard and are flexible for their operations until it squeaks", emphasizes schleser. It is therefore high time to give them a fair share of the rising sales. In the upcoming round of collective bargaining for the bavarian hotel and restaurant industry, the NGG is calling for a substantial wage increase.
According to the statistics office, bavaria as a whole is also becoming increasingly popular: with 94.4 million overnight stays (up 3.7 percent on the previous year) and 37.3 million guest arrivals (up 4.9 percent), bavarian tourism achieved its sixth record year in succession.

Actions for the children

Actions for the children

Where otherwise up to 99 children laugh, play, run and do handicrafts, has been since the 16. Marz silence. In the kindergarten burglauer – apart from a few individual children in the emergency group – only the staff is to be found in the kindergarten. "In the beginning, it was finally possible to take care of tasks that otherwise always had to be postponed or done on the side", tells kindergarten director carmen manger. But the most important thing is missing: the children’s laughter. To keep in touch with the children and show them that they are being thought of, the team has come up with a number of ideas. Letters were distributed to the children to shorten the time with a coloring picture and to give them a joy with photos of the reference educators. In addition, the team sang a song for the children, which was then distributed through various digital media. "Hello, you at home, we miss you so much, without your laughter it is so empty here", sing the educators. And because the children were not in kindergarten on easter, the educators placed a small gift in front of the children’s houses. Further actions are planned.

A musically active weekend lies behind the members of the kitzingen accordion group: first, the musicians visited the residents and guests at the old people’s home witt "kitzinger land" and took them on a musical trip around the world, according to a press release. Home staff member gundrun john rejoiced with the listeners that it was possible to visit almost every continent within a very short period of time.

In order to arrive back in france, the "francophone national anthem" was not to be missed: "well, the air is fresh," it rang out in many voices as they left the house.

Stonies from france

Stonies from france

Good trip! Jannik’s little fingers carefully place the stone on the moss. Here, next to a tree stump at the town lake of iphofen (near three-franken-corner), someone will surely find him soon. And hopefully he will be happy about the painted grin on his face. "Bye!", says the five-year-old. Then the bub gets back on his bike. He has five other brightly painted stones that he wants to send on a journey – a journey to happiness.

Into the luck? "The finder sees a smiling face on the stone. And then certainly laughs himself!", wishes jenny heckel, who painted the stone – her boys’ smiley bed linen inspired her to do so. Jannik’s and moritz’s mom has been a passionate seeker, finder and painter of frankenstones for half a year now. These are stones that can be found all over france, painted in color and often with a message on them. Sometimes more lightly, sometimes more heavily hidden, they are waiting to put a smile on the faces of finders – and then to be carried further across the country. Sometimes even beyond the french borders. So that the painter can find out where his little work of art has gone, the finder can post a message on the frankenstones facebook page.

"That’s how you get in touch with a lot of other stonies. This makes really spab", says jenny heckel. "And painting even more." The 33-year-old had found out about the frankenstones through a friend. "My children and i would simply paint a stone and lay it out. And already we were infected." Since then, mom and kids have been making their rounds through their hometown iphofen every day, scanning the surroundings with eagle eyes, especially "suspicious spots like branch forks, resting bench, gelander, walls. They have even infected their husbands and daddies. "Matze often brings back stones from his jogging rounds", tells jenny heckel. "Almost no day goes by without at least one of us finding something."

Daniel craig: “i am not grumpy”

Daniel craig: 'i am not grumpy'

James bond actor daniel craig (51) says he is not a public figure. "I probably don’t have a very good public persona," he revealed in an interview with the newspaper "sunday times.

"Some people can go on talk shows and tell stories, but i just don’t have that ability. I do not know what to say." Many people were therefore mistaken to think of him as grumpy, he said. "But i am not grumpy. Really not."

Craig also revealed that he doesn’t believe in social media. They made no sense from his point of view. "Who I am personally? That doesn’t matter to anyone," he made clear, "but it does to the people in my life."The british actor, who is married to colleague rachel weisz, prefers to keep his private life to himself. "I simply became coarse in a time when, as an artist, you didn’t look for confirmation. One didn’t go after "likes" he was looking for something, but simply did his thing."

Spd threatens to call off new search for final storage site

Spd threatens to call off new search for final storage site

The "dismantling" of the federal office for radiation protection (bfs) planned by rottgen for the search for a final repository is a political scandal, gabriel told the "braunschweiger zeitung" (saturday). The plans for a federal institute for final storage would mean that the competence in dealing with radioactive waste would be left out of the search for a final storage site. In addition, there could be a privatization of nuclear waste disposal in the medium term.

Rottgen rejected the criticism at the request of the german press agency. "This is a completely new task, which also requires a new authority structure," said minister. "We are faced with a decision that the next generations will also have to bear."Individual interests could not play a role here. "In order to make this process credible, transparent and comprehensible, we need an institution that stands outside of directives."

The new federal institute is to take the lead in the search for a final repository, according to the current draft legislation. The bfs was largely able to stay out of the question of the overall final disposal of high-level, as well as low-level and medium-level nuclear waste. "The SPD will not support the dismantling of the federal office, that is also our line in the consensus talks between the federal government and the federal states," stressed gabriel, who is rottgen’s predecessor as federal environment minister.
