Berger wins overall biathlon world cup – henkel twelfth

Berger wins overall biathlon world cup - henkel twelfth

"I don’t think anyone has ever been as dominant in the biathlon as she has been this year," said andrea henkel after the norwegian’s third success at holmenkollen. The 35-year-old from thuringia was once again the best german in the mass start in twelfth place, but missed out on a possible podium finish in the final push.

Berger was once again the mab of all things in their home country. The norwegian won the 12.5 kilometer race ahead of anastasiya kuzmina from slovakia and mass start world champion darja domratcheva from belarus, celebrating her eleventh victory of the season.

In the german camp, on the other hand, there was anger and disenchantment. "We are not able to switch off our head at the sliding stand, to concentrate on the technique, to bring in the dash of cheekiness, a bit of coolness there," said women’s national coach gerald honig about the unsatisfactory performances.

Sistergold? When and how did the name come about?
Kerstin rohn: we gave our first concert in 2009. We feel like "sisters in spirit" – sounds pompous, but it’s true: one for all, all for one.

There are more golden instruments – what is the special charm of a saxophone??
The attraction of the saxophone for us is the fact that we can play it, unlike the trumpet or trombone … (laughs) why do you fall in love? If you could answer that, some things would be easier! We love the sound of course and the fact that there is almost no music that could not be made to sound with this wonderful instrument.

Heinsberg study: possibly 1.8 million people infected

Heinsberg study: possibly 1.8 million people infected

According to the results of the so-called heinsberg study, 1.8 million people in germany could have been infected with the coronavirus by now. This is the result of an estimate based on a model calculation, the university of bonn announced on monday.

A leading epidemiologist made a cautious comment. The researchers led by virologist hendrik streeck based their estimate on the number of people infected in the community of gangelt in the district of heinsberg and the mortality rate calculated there for corona infection. The researchers assume that 0.37 percent of those infected in gangelt died. However, only seven deaths were included in the calculation of the mortality rate.

From these data they calculated a theoretical number for germany. In principle, this works like this: the researchers assume that mortality is roughly the same throughout germany. So if it is known how many infected people there are for every dead person, then the number of deceased people, which the RKI puts at more than 6,500, can be used to estimate the number of people who are actually infected – including those who have not been recorded.

Geesdorf finds too few holes

Geesdorf finds too few holes

Sometimes he complained, sometimes he gesticulated wildly, not to mention loud and clear instructions. He seemed to be clearly displeased with what his proteges brought to the geesdorf pitch against the second-last team in the table from lichtenfels. And he seemed to agree with the spectators, who also had little positive to say about the muden 1:1 draw. After the final whistle and a few minutes of pause, FC player-coach jannik feidel knew how to assess what he had seen: "of course we had hoped for more. But we looked stable throughout the game and always tried to run the ball and create chances."

With both the 23-year-old was right. Only the fubballspielen succeeded only rarely. The hosts all too often did not bring the necessary tempo into their ball forward, often held the leather too long or simply passed too often. Also the runs were not always right, which feidel attributed to the fact that he had to make three changes compared to the previous week, when simon weiglein, fabio feidel and luca fischer had been in the starting line-up.

Thus, the home side had problems against massive standing and consistently defending lichtenfelser, who had conceded a whopping 25 goals in their previous eight games, to come to dangerous conclusions. Vincent held, who also had a weak game and rarely played an active role in the geesdorf game, hardly received any useful passes and hung in the air for almost the entire 90 minutes. Only once in the first half did the black-and-whites get him into position, and that promptly led to the opening goal. Held had asserted himself on the left wing, got rid of two opponents and passed sharply into the center. It took niclas staudt three attempts against keeper christoph kraus and daniel schardt, but he finally got the ball over the line.

Technical problems: disco opening in hochstadt cancelled

technical problems: disco opening in hochstadt cancelled

It was to be the mega party of the year. For weeks, the hochstadt discotheque cue had been advertising its new opening on the first weekend of advent with posters all over the district. Something completely new was to be built on around 2,000 square meters on the site of the former pulse station. "We're going full throttle at the start, josias ritter, the company's managing director, recently announced on our site.

The concept was well received by young people from hochstadt and the surrounding area. The discotheque already has 3300 fans on facebook, 1800 party-goers even pledged their participation in the rough opening weekend. A good two weeks earlier, the site on kieferndorfer weg was still a rough construction site. And the city was not yet officially involved in the plan at that time either. "We have a tight window between now and the opening weekend, but there's a top team here, and i'm very confident we'll get everything done in time.", ritter still estimated at this time.

Anger among fans
On friday evening, however, came the gross humiliation: three hours before the start of admission, the organizers announced that the opening would have to be postponed due to a security defect. This announcement caused an uproar on the internet. Above all, the announcement at such short notice was met with incomprehension. "We tried as long as we could to solve the problem", the responsible persons explain this fact and put a corresponding detailed report online on saturday evening.

They do not only distribute food

They do not only distribute food

Manfred seigner was only wearing a cap, but he still took his hat off to helene schamann and the other strong women who make sure that those in need in kitzinge get something to eat. Eight ladies stand behind tables twice a week in the mainbernheimer strabe and distribute food and good words.
Helene schamann is one of three team leaders who, together with chairman manfred seigner, take care of the coordination at the kitzinger tafel, and she is one of three founding members of the local association. It's been going on for ten years now, and helene schamann, like seigner and anna ewert, has been a part of it from the very beginning. "It's just a good team," she says, she senior says about the current troupe. "Everyone deserved this light."
With a smile on her face, she received the christmas light from irma biebl of the city marketing association and "laudator" manfred hergert accepted – with reservation. "You couldn't get anything done here on your own, she said and insisted on accepting the small gift only on behalf of all the others. Dean schmerl had asked the kitzinger woman at that time if she was not interested in founding a kitzinger tafel association and getting involved there. Helene schamann, who lives alone, was immediately enthusiastic about the idea and still is today. "I think it's good to be able to help someone who isn't doing as well as we are", declares them. "You have to be glad that you have the strength and are healthy to be able to do something like this."

Good cohesion
She has also made real friends there. "The cohesion is enormous", she says – the ladies have just been on a winter trip to strabburg. Helene schamann also knows the community from other voluntary work she does, for example with the protestant women's association. "She didn't just pick one, she does a lot more", says manfred seigner, who is enthusiastic about "his" tree women. "They not only talk, but also help out." This is how the food, which is mainly picked up from the discounters in the region, is sorted in the building yard, and vegetables and fruit are cleaned and washed. And then the women stand in the store in mainbernheimer strabe until the evening. "We are glad that there are people like this and want to say thank you with our campaign, also found claudia biebl.
