Niebel: pay attention to origin when buying gifts

Niebel: pay attention to origin when buying gifts

"Especially before christmas, you should think about how products are made and whether other people are exploited in the process," niebel said in an interview with dpa. "Whoever buys a t-shirt for 99 cents must know that not much of this money will reach the manufacturer."But such aspects should also play a role when buying electronic devices or other gifts.

At the same time, the minister appealed to the industry to provide better information about the production conditions in its supplier factories. After the recent fire disasters in asian low-wage countries, consumers in germany have become more attentive, he said. "The industry must create more transparency before future christmas. This benefits sales of the company’s own products, the image of the company and the people who are employed in the production chain." fires in bangladesh and pakistan recently killed more than 350 textile workers.

Niebel called for the production conditions of goods to be made clear through quality seals and certificates. "At present, it is not always easy to determine whether goods come from a production facility where social standards or environmental standards are observed."The FDP politician admitted, however, that even with certificates there is no one hundred percent certainty.

"Given the unprecedented impact of covid-19 on the manufacturing industry, particularly the commercial aerospace industry, we are taking steps to streamline our business and ensure GE additive’s long-term strength. We appreciate the commitment of all our employees in these difficult times and regret that we have to take these measures", the statement from there is. Sentences from other companies, also from the region, announcing layoffs sounded similar to this.

Municipalities warn of high tariff demands

Municipalities warn of high tariff demands

A demand of 6.1 to 7 percent plus a social component, as is currently being discussed by the trade union verdi, for example, would cost local authorities six billion euros. This is what the president of the federation of municipal employers’ associations (VKA), thomas bohle, told the dpa news agency on sunday.

The civil service association (dbb) and its collective bargaining union will meet in cologne on monday for their annual trade union conference. Initial statements are expected on the wage negotiations for the 1.3 million pay-scale employees at the federal government and local authorities starting in march. In addition to german chancellor angela merkel (CDU) and north rhine-westphalia minister president hannelore kraft (SPD), german interior minister hans-peter friedrich (CSU) will also come to cologne. Friedrich is negotiator for the first time on the employer side.

VKA president bohle said: "since 2008, municipal debt has been rising steadily and as of october 2011 is at an all-time high of 128.7 billion euros – an increase of 7.8 percent over the previous year."Demands in the order of up to seven percent are "not feasible" in this cash situation. Bohle expressed a similar view in the "rheinische post" newspaper.

New man for regiomed

New man for Regiomed

The press release of the supervisory board chairman thomas mueller from wednesday is briefly held: "the supervisory board of the regiomed clinics gmbh has in its today’s meeting mr. Joachim bovelet with effect to 2. January 2014 appointed as chief executive of regiomed-kliniken gmbh. Its task is to work together with the management& consulting dr. Kobler gmbh to take over as interim managing director. With mr. Joachim bovelet, an experienced hospital manager, who has also proven himself very well in the municipal context, could be won over. Regiomed-kliniken has thus succeeded in taking a further step towards a future orientation."
Regiomed is a merger of seven municipal hospitals and their subsidiaries in the districts of coburg, hildburghausen, sonneberg and lichtenfels and the towns of coburg and schleusingen.

The district councils and mayors form the shareholders’ meeting and the supervisory board; this year’s chairman of the supervisory board is hildburghausen district administrator thomas muller (CDU).

Crisis in the hospital network
there has been a crisis at verbund for some time: at the beginning of 2012, the position of chief executive was created. But managing director katja bittner quickly made enemies, both among the shareholders and the works councils. So the head office was moved to coburg, although sonneberg is the headquarters of regiomed. In addition, there was an open dispute in the supervisory board in may 2012 about the decision-making authority of the chief executive when bittner wanted to dismiss the sonneberg hospital managing director antonius pille.

Comedy in old rooms

comedy in old rooms

The summer theater with the actors of the disharmonie schweinfurt is an attraction at the castle that friends of comedy would not want to miss. Given on four days in the echter-saal, director bernd lemmerich saw himself in the friday performance of goldoni’s "the servant of two masters" confronted with too few seats. Hastily added chairs solved the problem.

What is a servant of two masters? A confidant, an intimate, the best friend? Or is he a double agent, perhaps a whistle-blower?, a rascal who seeks his own advantage? Perhaps he is a little of each – like the servant truffaldino, the eternally hungry, but who keeps his knowledge to himself, because it pays to serve two masters.

Theater lovers are familiar with the comedy. For those who don’t know them, a short summary of the match. Florindo aretusi (conrad arendt) is said to have killed the brother of his beloved, beatrice rasponi (irene memmel), federico. He flees to venice. Disguised as a man, beatrice travels after him with her servant truffaldino (nicolas lommatzsch).

Scholz: deutsche bank and commerzbank sound out the situation

Deutsche bank and commerzbank sound out the current situation according to words of federal finance minister olaf scholz (SPD).

"There are consultations about the situation as it is. The federal government is a fair companion to private-sector discussions," said scholz on monday on the sidelines of the meeting of euro finance ministers in brussels. "There is nothing more to say at the moment."

The german newspaper "welt am sonntag" reported at the weekend that the board of deutsche bank had decided to enter into talks with the competitor. There have already been "unofficial contacts in very small circles," but they are not yet at a stage where they are required to be communicated. Spokesmen for both banks declined to comment on the report.

Angelo strangia is an honest finder

Hinrich ruyter from kronach had a special experience last week. The member of the senior citizens’ association kronach stadt und land was on a senior citizens’ association mission in steinwiesen, where he went by bicycle. "Don’t wear long pants in this heat, he remembers taking his wallet, keys and handkerchief.

Bad surprise

on the way back to kronach, he made a short stop to quench his thirst in marktrodach with a cup of buttermilk. 20 minutes later he was at home – then the bad surprise: "the wallet is missing – the pocket was too small."
ruyter then called the supermarket in marktrodach, but no wallet was handed in there. The horror was as great as could be, as there were "well over 100 euros in the wallet". Ten minutes later, the surprise: the chairwoman of the senior citizens’ association, bianca fischer-kilian, calls him and tells him that his wallet is with her: "it was lying on a bridge in unterrodach. I have to go to kronach anyway, bring him by", she tells him. The wallet with money and all the cards as well as the senior citizens’ community ID card was back again. Ruyter’s joy was correspondingly great. "That was madness. I never expected this." but how did the wallet get to friesen?? "An angel from teuschnitz found him, on an ebike bike tour with his wife and friend", informs ruyter. He calls the finder an angel, not least because of his name angelo – angelo strangia from hablach near teuschnitz.

Senior community helps

strangia is on the road with his wife and friend dieter kaschub when they see the wallet in the middle of the bike path. In the wallet, you will find the contact details of the chairwoman fischer-kilian on a small card of the senior citizens’ association, who will then inform you and bring the wallet to her. "For me, it’s a matter of course", says strangia, who doesn’t have to think for a second about returning the wallet. "Otherwise i would only have a bad conscience,", he adds.
Of course, he and his friend dieter kaschub are well aware of the hassle of having to cancel credit cards or reapply for identity documents such as driver’s licenses after such a loss. "Money can’t pay for that", stresses strangia, whose friend kaschub adds: "we would also be happy if it happened to us the other way round."

At the kerwes cup in roth, bite strength, balance and aim were in demand

It was quite close between first and third place, because there was only a difference of four points.
Dominik krappmann, cashier with the winner team, was pleased about the title win: "we will present beautiful games next year, which will then also take place again at the fire station", he assured. Numerous spectators came to the kirchweih saturday in ideal weather conditions. Hosts were the ansbachtaler musikanten who had won this event last year. Eight teams of four collected points together and after hours of spirited competition, the winner was able to receive the challenge cup. The organization team had again come up with a number of ideas to ensure that there would be no boredom. The teams' first task was to eat a sweet pacifier attached to colorful strings as quickly as possible. In the next task, washers in various cups had to be transported with a spoon from a height of three meters. The cups had different points. In game three, the four players first had to wrap themselves with tape. Then had to go through a slalom course. Afterwards, weights had to be estimated correctly. The task was to fill bags as accurately as possible with three different weights (112, 224 and 415 grams) of sand. Here it became clear that this is not so easy without aids. Skill and a lot of feeling was needed in the last game. With a ruler in the mouth, a washer had to be balanced safely through a course into a money box.
Winner and the next year's organizer is the soldier comradeship. Second place, one point behind, were the men of FC fortuna, followed by the gesangverein. Afterwards, a sense of orientation was required for the cock stroke. Georg helm and daniel dillinger received prizes for their marksmanship. The visitors spent some enjoyable hours, first with the hit duo "edelmeer and with the band "tollhaus.

The burial ground brought out of the darkness of history

The burial ground brought out of the darkness of history

272 pages comprise the new book by manfred firnkes, which is published in the series of publications of the verein fur heimatgeschichte im grabfeld (association for local history in the grabfeld). Now it was officially presented in the historic town hall hall of bad konigshofen. Mayor thomas helbling said that one should be curious about what the author has found out in his research on the burial ground.

The town was therefore happy to help finance the book, 400 copies of which are available in bookstores, from the spa administration, from the town of bad konigshofen and from the author manfred firnkes. "From the darkness of history, he has brought out the grave field and found that it can certainly be called the political center of the frankish rulers and kings", said principal manfred firnkes. Since the documents were all written in latin at that time, it was no problem for him as a former teacher of latin at the grammar school in bad konigshofen to read them. "In the end it was small pieces of the mosaic that gradually came together."

Intensive research

District local history and archive keeper reinhold albert recalled that five years ago manfred firnkes approached him and the association for local history and presented his idea. It was a matter of evaluating and translating the available documents. The author has approached his work meticulously, he has documented everything and altogether has brought out an interesting work, which is now available as volume 47 of the series of publications of the society for local history. Reinhold albert thanked the sponsors, the town of bad konigshofen, the district of rhon-grabfeld, the cultural foundation of the district of lower franconia, the banks and the lions club, as well as the board of directors of the grabfeld local history society. For the intensive researches one is very grateful as a historical association and he himself as a district local history and archive keeper.
