Pope gives “urbi et orbi” blessing

Pope gives 'urbi et orbi' blessing

From the central loggia of st. Peter’s cathedral, he gave the traditional "urbi et orbi" blessing in front of tens of thousands of people (the city and the district). The christmas message of the pope elected in march was broadcasted live in about 50 countries.

In view of the growing number of refugees from syria and numerous african countries, the pope called on wealthy countries to take in more migrants. "Let tragedies like the numerous deaths in lampedusa never happen again", he said. At the beginning of october, 400 african refugees drowned in two shipwrecks off lampedusa.

In addition to the war in syria, the pope also addressed numerous other conflicts in the middle east and africa. Deviating from the text of his speech, he also explicitly called on non-believers to strive for peace.
Among other things, he expressed hope for a solution to the middle east conflict. The peace negotiations between israelis and palastinians should "come to a happy end", he said.

Jobcenter lichtenfels imposes more penalties

Jobcenter lichtenfels imposes more penalties

The news was a bombshell: the number of penalties imposed on hartz IV recipients between august 2011 and july 2012 was 1.017 million. In the district of lichtenfels, too, the number of hartz IV recipients who were penalized and therefore received less money has risen in recent years.

Managing director wolfgang franz and his 40 or so employees at the lichtenfels job center are concerned about around 1,500 people who are currently receiving hartz-IV benefits. "Customers" he calls them and by no means all of his customers are unemployed, franz emphasizes – that is currently around 770 people in the district. Among the hartz-IV-recipients there are also sick people, people who are in further education, or women who are on family leave. What they all have in common is that they are needy. Officially recognized by the social code II.

Fewer hartz IV recipients
Wolfgang franz had reason to rejoice. The number of his customers is declining. Just four years ago, the job center in lichtenfels had over 2,400 people to look after. Today there are almost 1000 people less. Wolfgang franz could rejoice, but he does not. Because no one can make rough jumps to his customers, the job center's managing director says. The hartz IV standard rate is 364 euros for a single person – that doesn't leave much left over at the end of the month. With a serious expression on his face, he says: "every unemployed person is one too many. Our job is to find work for our customers when they are unemployed."

Mancity team in the millions again on the brink of elimination

mancity team in the millions again on the brink of elimination

After the 2:2 (1:2) against ajax amsterdam, the english champions are as good as eliminated, just like last year. Coach roberto mancini immediately took issue with the referee and the english media over this de-feat. When he looked at the table of the dortmund group, he was left with only one bitter realization: "I think the champions league is over."

Theoretically, mancini’s million-dollar squad can still hope to win its two remaining games against real madrid and BVB, plus get protective help from ajax against one of those two teams. But in practice, not even a single victory against the aubenseiter from amsterdam was enough in the past two weeks. Ajax, which loses its best players year after year, is something like the exact opposite of this highly ambitious city project financed with vast sums of money.

Taken over by sheikh mansour bin zayed al nahyan of abu dhabi in 2008, manchester united’s city rivals have since thrown money around like no other club in the world. Mancini has been allowed to sign new players for more than 330 million euros in the past three years. At least in the champions league, the balance sheet is devastating in terms of these investments.

Interpol cancels turkish search for author akhanli

Interpol cancels turkish search for author akhanli

The search request against the koln author dogan akhanli at the international police organization interpol has been removed. "We are pleased that interpol has cancelled the "red notice" against doghan akhanli", it hailed from the foreign office in berlin.

State secretary walter lindner is in contact with his spanish colleague on this issue. It remained unclear at first whether akhanli would be able to leave spain again. Interpol said this evening on request, the organization does not comment on individual cases. The states involved are obliged to.

On the basis of the "red notice" ("rote notiz" or "rote ausschreibung") akhanli had been temporarily arrested last saturday during a vacation in spain at the behest of turkey. Spain released the author, who was born in eastern turkey, after one day – but only under certain conditions. He was not allowed to leave the country, had to surrender his passport and report to the authorities once a week. He was threatened with extradition to turkey, where he is accused of serious crimes.

The french day is a guest in fischbach

the french day is a guest in fischbach

Editors of the french day will be there to answer their questions. Together with mayor wolfgang beiergroblein and the local town councillors, club chairmen and burghers, the fischbach issues can be discussed.
Fischbach, or more precisely the hamlet of tauschendorf, was first mentioned in 1294 in a list of the landholdings of the monastery of langheim. At that time – according to local historians – there were probably already first beginnings of fischbach itself, as it is stated in a contribution to the festschrift of the voluntary fire department from the year 2000.
Fischbach itself is mentioned for the first time in 1325. Under the amt "steinach" (meant is stadtsteinach) is a place "vischbach" registered. At that time, today’s district was not subordinate to nearby kronach, but to stadtsteinach, which was much further away.
The dependence of fischbach on the office of stadtsteinach can be traced throughout the middle ages up to the 19th century. Track the century. Traces of the former affiliation can still be found today – for example in the naming of front and back floors, because this only takes on the right meaning from the perspective of stadtsteinach.
In fischbach, there were three dynasties that continued to serve as noble landlords for almost half a century.
These were first the lords of waldenfels (from about 1450), then from about 1600 the lords of guttenberg – and finally from 1738 on the lords of reitzenstein. They lived with their families in two palaces, of which the "upper" one was the "lower" one right next to the church still exists today. It was a margravial-bayreuth fiefdom, while the lower castle existed as a fiefdom of the prince-bishop of bamberg. From the above-mentioned dynasties came a total of 24 officials.
The first schoolhouse was built in 1755. Fischbach was even briefly part of preuben, but then became part of the electorate of bavaria in 1805. A voluntary fire department was founded there in 1874, two years later a registry office was established. In 1920 came the electric light, 13 years later was built the tram to wustbuch.
In 1972, the two communities of wotzelsdorf and fischbach merged because they wanted to maintain their independence. However, this wish was not fulfilled – instead, 75 percent voted for an affiliation with kronach, thus eliminating the alternative of marktrodach.

Corona-dead become more

Corona-dead become more

In the coming weeks, significantly more people will die in connection with a corona infection than in previous weeks, according to a study.

Model calculations showed that the number of deaths from covid-19 in germany was already allowed to increase to 500 to 800 per week at the beginning of november, said viola priesemann, head of a research group at the max planck institute for dynamics and self-organization in gottingen. The increase may be even more pronounced.

The relatively low number of deaths so far is due to the fact that until the end of september, people under the age of 60 had been infected with the sars-cov-2 virus, the scientists around priesemann explain. Since then, the number of reported infections has also risen among people over 60. With a time lag of about two weeks, this would also lead to an increase in the death rate. Scientists from numerous german research institutions participated in the study.

The head of the kronach police department, uwe herrmann, has been a police councilor since february.

Mr. Herrmann, you are now a police councilor. What does it mean? What will change?

Media: bnd wants to probe social networks live

Media: bnd wants to probe social networks live

The federal intelligence service (BND) is increasingly targeting social networks. According to information from "suddeutscher zeitung", NDR and WDR, the german foreign intelligence service wants to be able to investigate twitter, facebook and co in real time in the future. The plans emerged from several confidential documents of the BND, the media reported on friday evening.

According to the information, the BND bases its surveillance programs on the technical capabilities of the controversial US intelligence service NSA and the british GCHQ. The project is being run internally under the title "real-time analysis of streaming data".

Already this year, the foreign intelligence service wants to improve its technology in such a way that weblogs, forums and portals such as flickr, facebook and twitter can be systematically analyzed, according to the "suddeutsche zeitung". This should make it possible, for example, to immediately incorporate moods in the population of other countries into BND images.

Pirate party launches democracy software 2.0

Pirate party launches democracy software 2.0

"We want the 2.0-politics, we want to organize it as a social network," said the party’s political director, johannes ponader, in berlin. The decision-making processes with the help of this internet platform are a solution to balance the difference between direct democracy and representative democracy with delegates, said deputy federal chairman markus barenhoff at a presentation in berlin.

The long-term goal is a "permanent members’ meeting" for the formation of opinion within the party on the internet. Only elections would not be possible. In the long term, the aim is to create new types of solution systems that can cope with the complexity of issues such as the financial crisis or climate change.

There are currently around 10,000 members registered with the system. Liquidfeedback is actively used by around three to five percent of the party’s 30,000 members, said klaus peukert, who is responsible for the operation of liquidfeedback on the party’s national executive board. This is higher than in other organizations. Currently, there are about ten new initiatives from members every day via liquidfeedback. With the introduction of liquidfeedback 2.0 the pirate party hopes for an increased use of the platform, but does not set itself any targets for it. He expects "that the importance of the system will be strengthened more and more," ponader said, referring to remaining concerns within the party against a comprehensive use of the software.
