But not only because they have now made it to the finals, the two shows cannot be compared in the eyes of the boys. "Here, every candidate simply brings an insanely high level with them. On the supertalent there are also candidates who are there for the quota. On got to dance, on the other hand, all the contestants are really good," says pollner, explains alexander pollner from the DDC.

In ahorn there were digital lessons long before corona

In ahorn there were digital lessons long before corona

The municipality of ahorn had the right scent: because it invested in digitalization for schools – long before the corona pandemic forced this across the board. For about 35,000 euros, the classrooms of the johann-gemmer elementary school were equipped in 2018, 2019 and 2020 in such a way that, in close consultation with the teaching staff, the basis for modern teaching was created. This has already proved to be the case in times of corona, says a press release from the municipality. Through the "special budget loan rate" program school loan devices (tablets) could also be purchased to enable schoolchildren without access to a suitable device to take part in digital lessons at home. Because the demand program was increased, additional tablets could be ordered.

For example, the 2019/2020 school year already began with good digital equipment. And with the general renovation, the johann-gemmer elementary school is getting a modern WLAN structure. As part of the revitalization of the schusterbau, a fiber optic connection is to be installed directly in the school even before the general renovation is complete. For this investment and well thought-out preparation for digital teaching, the community of ahorn has now been awarded a prize by the bavarian state minister for education and culture, prof. Michael piazolo, and secretary of state anna stolz with the certificate "digital education region in bavaria 2019 has been awarded. The certificate has now been sent by district administrator sebastian straubel, as an official transfer date could not take place due to corona.

Total fights against impending environmental disaster

Total fights against impending environmental disaster

Several days after the discovery of a leak from a french energy company total platform in the north sea off scotland, no solution is in sight. Environmentalists assume that the mixture contains toxic sulfur compounds. Ships were only allowed to approach within two nautical miles due to the danger of explosion, and aircraft had to keep a distance of three miles.

The operating company did not have a specific plan of action wednesday. The company would not comment on the composition of the escaping gas or the exact location of the leak. "No decisions have been made yet," said a spokesman in aberdeen. Meanwhile, scottish environment minister richard lochhead demanded "maximum transparency" from total and the british government in london.

It is not impossible that the gas well will dry up by itself, it said at total. The british energy secretary charles hendry spoke of an "abandoned well. The leak had occurred when workers tried to keep the well, which had already been exploited almost to the end, open for the long term. So far, about 20 tons of gas have leaked, and a 4.8 square kilometer film of gas has formed on the surface of the sea, the company said.
