Martin walser philosophizes about angela merkel's beauty

The writer martin walser (91) once again shows himself to be a fan of chancellor angela merkel: he describes himself in the new "spiegel" as "seduced" by her "and by the quiet force of her beauty". How he means this, he explains in an essay.

"Her face hardly ever shows what she thinks she has to say again now."Merkel’s image is her nature, says walser. "And this is what distinguishes her from all politicians of the epoch: when she speaks, let us experience how her phrases are created as she speaks. What makes her unique is that she lets us see how she comes up with the sentences she says."And also: "I am always curious to see what she will say at the next moment."

Walser himself refers in the "spiegel" to an older text of himself, which was written on the 22nd of friday. November 2015 in the "frankfurter allgemeine sonntagszeitung" and in which it said at the time: "when i said in berlin the other day in a hall full of people: "angela merkel is already", people laughed."

Winter hike with the alpenverein

Winter hike with the alpenverein

This time the traditional winter hike of the alpine club of bad kissingen led to the wurzburger haus. Although the weather was wet and cold and not really conducive to hiking, a group of intrepid hikers led by erich lehenbauer set off at 8 a.M. From the hut.30 o’clock at the garitz tennis courts. The path led first through the rain-soaked klauswald in the direction of poppenroth.

While the hikers were still busy opening their umbrellas, a pack of wild boars crossed their path at high speed. This probably also led to a small involuntary detour in the klaus forest. Back on the right track, the trail then went via poppenroth and lauter to waldfenster. There the group took a short break for breakfast. And suddenly the snow was there. Over the snow-covered height of the platzer kuppe, which looked picturesque but took some energy reserves, the group finally reached the female "wurzburger haus" after four and a half hours. Here in the warm and dry, the participants could recover from the strains of the tour with good food and cheerful conversations. Afterwards, the club bus brought the good-humored group back to the starting point

This is because many investors are unsettled by the euro debt crisis and unclear future regulations and are holding back on trading despite the significant rise in share prices. At least, the proceeds increased compared to the second half of 2012.

At the beginning of the year, the operating profit (EBIT) of the german stock exchange fell by a good quarter compared with the prior-year period to 192 million euros.
