Outstanding musical performance of the kulmbach vocal ensemble tonart

The tonart ensemble performed a unique work on good friday evening in the petrikirche in kulmbach: heinrich schutz (1585-1672) composed the "musikalische exequien" for the funeral of his sovereign heinrich posthumus reub on 14. February 1636 in gera. During his lifetime, the prince had compiled a collection of biblical passages and hymn verses that schutz was to set to music for the funeral. His sarcophagus was also to be inscribed with a part of the texts. The "musikalische exequien", a work for 6, 8 or more voices and basso continuo, is considered one of the composer’s most profound creations.

The preserved coffin and the "musical exequia are impressive testimonies of reformatory piety from the time of the thirty years’ war. The prince laid down every detail of his funeral. The bible verses, which were a comfort to him in life and in death, should also uplift the bereaved. That is why they are the text basis of the funeral music.

Even the day of the burial in the tomb had been carefully chosen by the prince: the memorial day of the new testament prophet simeon. The words of which are recorded in the gospel of luke: "lord, now you let your servant go in peace" will be played at the end of the funeral music.

“Bum-bum”-kevin returns home

It all reminds one a bit of the story of tennis pro boris becker. Kevin krawietz from witzmannsberg can now probably understand how boris becker must have felt after his wimbledon victory in 1985.

The french open title winner was honored by the community of ahorn on wednesday evening at the "alte schaferei" received. Many media representatives, but also many friends of kevin krawietz had come together and created a perfect setting for the tribute to the outstanding sporting success. And in the middle of it all: a still beaming kevin krawietz.

"This doesn’t happen every day", father rudi describes the success of his offspring. From the very first match, kevin and his partner andreas mies had always fought and their fan community had always cheered them on. From the first game to the final, rudi krawietz, who had once been a very successful squash player himself, had worn a red t-shirt. Of course it was sweaty and had to be washed in between, rudi revealed with a mischievous smile. "But the father can only be the basis giver", coburg’s third mayor thomas nowak remarked somewhat jokingly.

Significant increase in training contracts

Significant increase in training contracts

The chamber of industry and commerce for upper franconia bayreuth recorded a noticeable increase in the number of training contracts in the first three months of this year in the kronach chamber of industry and commerce district. Their number rose from 62 to 101.
Bernd rehorz, head of the vocational training department at the chamber of industry and commerce, estimates that the number of apprenticeship contracts in the kronach district will rise to around 450 by the end of the year. "Unfortunately, quite a few apprenticeship positions will remain unfilled again in 2018, which will present our member companies with quite a few challenges again this year.", says hans rebhan, vice president of the IHK and chairman of the IHK committee kronach. Due to the shortage of young people, job interviews at companies are taking place earlier and earlier. Rehorz: "whereas in 2010 only 17 percent of all apprenticeship contracts had been signed by the end of march, in 2017 this figure had already risen to 24 percent." rebhan hopes however that in the area kronach nevertheless to the end of the year a plus with the new registrations will stand.
"In more and more companies, the increasing demand for products and services can only be met with a growing workforce. If companies do not find skilled workers, in the worst case they can no longer accept orders." vocational training offers opportunities for advancement "vocational training is characterized by practical relevance and a secure future, as well as excellent opportunities for advancement, rebhan makes himself strong for the training. An apprenticeship has long been an excellent alternative for high school graduates as well. "For those who do not yet know whether a degree or an apprenticeship is the better alternative, I recommend an apprenticeship." A course of study can also be a good follow-up to training. Rebhan: "A very good alternative is to continue your education while working." for a long time now, a degree as an industrial master has been on a par with a bachelor’s degree.
Vocational training is also a good alternative for people who have dropped out of university. "This target group has good previous knowledge, which makes them very interesting for the regional economy", says rebhan. "The next generation gets a new perspective and our companies can fill their vacant apprenticeship positions sooner." that’s why the chamber of industry and commerce for upper franconia bayreuth also offers special consultation hours in kronach for people who have dropped out of their studies.

Will he be the new mayor??

Will he be the new mayor??

It is a race with an unequal starting position when it starts on sunday, 11. March, to the mayoralty in michelau goes. Incumbent helmut fischer (CSU), elected in 2006 with an outstanding 75.99 percent of the vote, wants to remain the boss in town hall for another eight years. This is how long the term of office will last this time. This is regulated by a law that aims to harmonize the dates of mayoral and municipal elections. Up to 72. Fischer, who is now 63, is not at all bothered by the fact that he has been working since the age of 63. Fischer, father of two grown-up daughters and now a grandfather – feels fit, plays competitive sports (tennis) and, by his own admission, "has never been ill". "I would like to work as long as I am allowed to", he emphasizes.
Fischer’s commitment to local politics goes back to the 1970s. His entrepreneurial life had priority at the time – since 1973, the business graduate has been managing general partner of andreas schardt KG, michelau’s oldest company. When he applied for the mayoralty for the first time in 2006, he had already spent a total of almost a year in the michelau town hall as an official administrator. He has been involved in district politics since 1996. He has been a deputy district administrator since 2008, and here too he was in charge for seven months last year due to the illness of former district administrator leutner. The list of his honorary posts is long; he already received the highest award in his home community, the johann puppert medal in gold, in 2010.

The challenger

"new momentum promises the 44-j?Hrigen challenger J?Rgen spitzenberger (SPD). He has been a member of the local council for ten years, and since the last local elections he has also been the spokesman for the parliamentary group, having received the most votes on its list. Also since 2008, he has been chairman of the local SPD association. The master precision mechanic works for the largest company in michelau, scherer& trier, working as a manager in the tool and plant construction sector. He has three children (21/15/13) and is passionate about soccer in his spare time. He played for FC schwurbitz when he was nine years old and still does now in the reserve and old-league team. He was a youth coach and even chairman of the club for ten years, which is how he got to know many people. Today he works on the committee.
He didn’t have to think long about the decision to throw his hat into the ring in the mayoral election, says spitzenberger, because: "the chance to become mayor doesn’t come along very often."
Two sporty ones are it thus, which stand to the choice. What else they have in common? The sign of the zodiac – both gemini. And that they did not want to express themselves in each case over the opponent here at this place…

There is still much to do

From september 2017 to august 2018, 657 refugees registered as unemployed took up employment subject to social security contributions in the agency district of wurzburg. That was twice as many as in the previous twelve months. Sounds good. And yet there is still a lot to do – as the example of hossein sarwari and the company roku in kitzingen shows.

Stefan beil is the head of the employment agency in wurzburg. He is certainly right when he says that a job is not only important to build a livelihood. It is also an important step for social integration. "In order to promote professional integration, it is indispensable to qualify the people who have fled to us within the scope of their possibilities," says beil. "In the end, the region also benefits from this, because workers are urgently needed in almost all sectors."

Claudia roder-dehn and her husband jurgen dehn from the company roku in kitzingen need new workers. And they have had positive experiences with "their" refugee, hossein sarwari. Still, they wouldn’t hire a second employee with a refugee background at the moment. "The bureaucratic hurdles are simply too high," says claudia roder-dehn. The support they provided as employers was incredibly time-consuming and exhausting, he says.

Rajoy in barcelona for the first time since catalonia was deprived of its power

Spain’s prime minister marriano rajoy visited the regional capital barcelona for the first time since taking control of catalonia.

There, hundreds of thousands of supporters of the independence movement had expressed their solidarity with the deposed regional government at a large demonstration on saturday evening. They demanded the withdrawal of the "occupying forces" from madrid and the release of eight deposed ministers who had been summoned by the judiciary following the regional parliament’s decision on independence and taken into custody for investigation in early november.

The participants carried signs saying "freedom for the political prisoners" or "SOS democracy. Many waved the "estelada", the flag of the catalan independence movement .
