344 Pages of school history on the occasion of the anniversary

344 pages of school history on the occasion of the anniversary

As a "higher daughter school the caspar vischer high school in kulmbach started teaching in 1893. At a time when kulmbach had a population of just 7,000, this was something very special.
"The CVG is a piece of emancipation history, there has always been an innovative aspect to the school", said principal ulrike endres at the presentation of the commemorative publication for the school anniversary. 344 pages full of school history, biographies and contributions to the changes in the school building over time.

"A treasure chest"

The historian wolfgang schoberth was taken with the school building: "the CVG is a treasure chest, here we find great art on the building, such as the grandiose mosaic frieze in the atrium, created by the artists hans lewerenz and caspar walter rauh." The building itself was built in the bauhaus style and was a matter of the heart of fritz kerling, the city’s chief architect, who was a pupil of heinrich tessenow, the cult architect of the early modern era. The great thing is that the art is still kept alive at the CVG today.
A lot has changed at the school, and not just in the building itself. "The current library used to house the school chest", said ulrike endres, and thomas pittroff, now a teacher at the CVG, recalled his own school days. He belonged to the last class that was still cooking here "and at least as well as the girls". The boys at the former girls’ high school had to fight for some of their rights, such as being allowed to enroll in the social sciences branch of their education. "At first, that was reserved for girls only", explained ulrike endres.

Prominenet former

In an article, anke emminger explains how girls’ and women’s education in germany has changed since 1893. The commemorative publication also features a number of contemporary witnesses and introduces famous former schoolgirls such as rosa viandt and luise praetorius.
Of course, an essay on the school’s namesake, well known to the people of kulmbach as the architect of the beautiful courtyard of the plassenburg castle, is not to be omitted. "There are so many exciting things to tell about our school, we didn’t have that much space in our commemorative publication. We have therefore decided to present the information in the form of highlights", said endres and thanked all involved.
The commemorative publication for the 125th anniversary of caspar-vischer-gymnasium is available for 7.90 euros from the secretary’s office or at the jubilee celebration on 21 june. JULY. Bookstores also prepared to display them.

“We are not second-class burgers!”

In the east of bamberg on friday was already the 1. April. Why, explained heinz jung, district chairman of the bamberg nature conservation association at a rally in front of the plarrergelande, which was attended by about 150 demonstrators in the form of a star march.

"The city council worries about larm protection in the city center at maxplatz. The same city councilor is not interested in an increase of air traffic, even at night time. This can only be an april joke! Or are we people in the east only second-class burgers??", raged young. This will not be tolerated for long.

Although they had already said "yes" to the to the millions in gifts for brose, even though schools don’t have enough money to buy a bucket of paint. One has also "yes" said to a work shift. According to jung, no new jobs will be created, but merely relocated from coburg to bamberg. The burgers in the east also said "yes said to the expansion of the airfield. "But that is over now. We say ‘no’ in the future and demand a ban on night flights without restrictions, a limit on the frequency of flights and the designation of the airfield as a nature reserve."

There are still piglets in ottowind

There are still piglets in ottowind

One out of 15 farms – that’s all that’s left of the piglet production in the ottowind district of meede. The remaining barn belongs to the family schrijer. But why are there fewer piglet farmers in general?? The main reason is an EU regulation that requires breeding sows to be kept in groups and prohibits them from being kept permanently in individual pens. Until the beginning of the year the farmers had time for the conversion. For the schrijers this meant uncertainty, a little frustration and a lot of money.

Because: because of the regulation from brussel, farmers had to rebuild their stables – which causes high costs. "We had to think long and hard before we finally decided to take this step", says jan schrijer. After all, he and his wife marina had to put up around 200,000 euros, about 20 percent of which came from demand funds. "We had a long time to think about the decision", says marina schrijer. They only made the decision at the end of 2010, when a successor for the farm had been found.

Axel backert from the neustadt area has been working on the schrijers’ farm for over two years and wants to take it over. Backert sees agriculture in a process of change: "we are in the midst of a structural transformation. It’s easier for large companies to make new investments, and the smaller ones are left behind", says the 27-year-old farmer.

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.

Bischberg puts money into canal

Money the council took in hand at its youngest meeting. This year, the leithe local road is to be completed with the renewal of all sewer and water pipes and the road itself. 424,705 euros have been budgeted for sewer and water works, and 350,668 euros for road works.

More formal character had the confirmation of the commandant and his deputy of the voluntary fire department bischberg. Martin raab was elected as commander, andreas then as his deputy, and unanimously confirmed by the council.

A million euro project

The new construction of the regnitzbrucke on the B 26 federal highway near bischberg is a matter of concern for the bischberg town council. According to the planning approval decision of the government of upper franconia, the total cost of the canal will be almost twelve million euros. The road construction project includes the demolition of the bridge and its replacement to the east of the existing bridge, as well as the alteration of the intersection between the B 26 and the BA 36 district road by creating a traffic circle and the southern relocation of the local connection road between bischberg and gaustadt. Since the crossing points of the roads change in the course of this reduction, the road construction burden also changes, according to johann burgermeister. This was then transferred to the municipality of bischberg on a long of up to 180 meters. In addition, a considerable traffic jam is to be expected during peak traffic hours with the planning of the traffic circle. The bischberg community council therefore unanimously decided to take legal action before the bavarian administrative court because of the negative effects of the new regnitzbrucke bridge.
