Guided tour of the green hospital

Guided tour of the green hospital

Bright rooms with a beautiful view, automatically dimmed lights and underfloor heating – no, we're not talking about a hotel here, but about the new clinic in lichtenfels. At today's burgerfest, visitors can take their first look at the new building. "But don't be alarmed, we are still in the construction phase.", warns county councilor christian meibner (CSU). One day before the official tour, he presents the green hospital together with construction coordinator tristan rinker and hospital director eva gill. At the inauguration, meibner can breathe a sigh of relief: "we've got our work cut out for us, but i can say that we're satisfied with the quality and may even undercut the construction costs." About 80 million these.

Everyone should feel comfortable

Patients should feel comfortable during their stay at the clinic. There are a total of 276 beds and four double wards, with one ward containing 32 beds. These are divided into double and single rooms. According to eva gill, there will definitely be no triple rooms or beds in the corridor here. "When the hospital is full, it is full", confirms the district administrator. And that is also in the interest of the patient.

with a new screen at the bed, a gentle view of nature and an automatic light system, the stay should be as pleasant as possible. The fully automatic light system turns on at wake-up time, with a soft, dimmed light. "The light builds up automatically, it corresponds to the natural rhythm of daylight and also adapts to it", says gill. In addition, he said, there was a warm. The builder was skeptical at first. Because so far, he said, there is no clinic that has this system in place. "As a builder, you're naturally worried", he confesses. These have meanwhile faded away: "an automatic feel-good atmosphere is created."

Rosler wants to call for solar energy short

Rosler wants to call for solar energy short

"In the long run, this will break the system and is not sustainable," said the minister. A reform of the law requiring the development of energy from the sun, wind or biomass had only come into force in january. This area is not part of rosler’s remit for the energy turnaround – federal environment minister norbert rottgen (CDU) is responsible.

Rosler is now advocating abandoning the fixed feed-in tariffs guaranteed for 20 years under the german renewable energies act (EEG). Instead, the minister wants to oblige utilities to supply a certain portion of their electricity from renewable sources. You could choose the form of production. This quantity model will draw out efficiency competition, rosler said.

Until now, eco-energy producers have received fixed payments per kilowatt hour of electricity. The difference between the prices obtained on the market for electricity and the remuneration is paid by consumers through the levy on the price of electricity. For an average household, the demand costs currently account for about 125 to 130 euros.

Five trucks, two traps and 200 cars.000 euros in damage: traffic chaos on the a3 near theilheim

Five truck drivers will probably remember the stretch of the A 3 between the rottendorf and randersacker junctions unpleasantly for a long time to come: on tuesday morning, they were involved in a rear-end collision there in the direction of frankfurt. Two drivers were slightly injured. In total there was a property damage of over 200.000 euro. According to the police, the result was a traffic jam that stretched for kilometers and reached far beyond the biebelrieder kreuz intersection.

At the randersacker junction, traffic in the direction of frankfurt is being led through three narrowed lanes due to construction work. Depending on the volume of traffic, long lines form on the right lane in front of the construction site, mainly due to heavy goods vehicles whose drivers are not allowed to overtake there.

End of traffic jam overlooked – truck crashes into tractor-trailer

At around 6:45 a.M., a 45-year-old driver noticed too late that a 40-ton truck in front of him was very slowly closing in on the end of the traffic jam. Despite braking fully, he crashed his tractor-trailer into the rear of the semitrailer about one kilometer after the rottendorf junction and pushed the vehicle onto a truck in front of it. The cab of his tractor-trailer was severely damaged and the man was trapped. The emergency doctor was flown in for first aid.

Climate change makes it easier for albatrosses to find food

climate change makes it easier for albatrosses to find food

Winds in the southern hemisphere have increased in intensity and changed to allow majestic albatrosses to reach food more quickly from their breeding colonies.

Under the changed conditions, the animals had gained an average of one kilogram in body weight over the past decades, and breeding success had improved, writes a french-german research team in the journal "science. However, these positive effects of climate change could be short-lived if the wind currents in the antarctic continue to shift.

If climate scenarios for the year 2080 come true, the living conditions of the endangered birds could worsen again, warn scientists. If the westerly winds shift even further toward the south pole, the wandering albatrosses will have to fly further again to find optimal sailing conditions.

Faster passenger checks possible at airport

Faster passenger checks possible at airport

Most passengers feel that checking their hand luggage and their own bodies is a necessary but also burdensome part of their trip.

The procedure becomes particularly nerve-wracking when long queues form at the counters and the departure date draws ever closer.

Last year, thousands of passengers missed their flights at rush hour, and not only in frankfurt; the controls played their part in this. But tests at hamburg and frankfurt airports now promise improvement, raising hopes that another chaotic summer could be avoided.

Whitsun wine festival in seinsheim begins in a full tent

Whitsun wine festival in seinsheim begins in a full tent

At the reception for invited guests in the historic town hall, markus mergenthaler dealt with the french language and its "hard and soft letters. He described alois josef ruppert as a pioneer of records in poetry form. Ruppert came to neuses am berg in 1872 as a teacher, town clerk and writer. There he had begun to collect payments and poems and to compose his own poems in the dialect, until he died in 1916 in geiselwind.

As one of the wine paradise communities, seinsheim benefits from the wine paradise trail between nenzenheim and weigenheim. Wine paradise managing director annerose pehl-durr presented the trail as an enjoyment route on which one can experience magnificent views of unspoilt landscapes from the hohenbuhl in seinsheim. Information boards point out the respective villages and their special features to the visitors.

From the neighborhood of iphofen, wine princess laura brought a wine made from dried grapes of the muller-thurgau variety. During the harvest, 85 degrees oechsle were measured, and after drying the wine was concentrated at 100 degrees oechsle. After that, the wine was vinified as a normal wine. It is characterized by a coarse substance supported by a light acidity. The wine is unique in franconia and is called strohwein in austria. This protected designation may not be used however.

Museum with added value

Museum with added value

"The whole thing is gaining momentum." Mayor johann kalb (CSU/ zwdg) could hear what he expected from the annual report of museum director tanja roppelt: no more and no less than a success story. And this is to be continued. "Now we're really expanding it,", kalb announced in the municipal council. The rough expansion has already been completed. The opening of the extension in may 2011 has opened up a whole new range of possibilities for the museum. Some of these are already being used, as roppelt reported.

For example, there is now space for events that was not available in the winding birthplace of jean's great-grandfather, levi strauss. With the 1.5 million euro renovation and extension of the neighboring building, almost 400 square meters have been added to the previous 130 square meters. Underneath, an event room that holds a maximum of 70 to 80 people.

The first lectures that made full use of the space available were, for example, the presentation of the new biography of levi strauss by pautzfelder hans schaub or the CHW lecture on johann modschiedler by wolfgang rossler, the district curator of local history. Because these events have also completely exhausted the house's quota of chairs, roppelt would like "another 20 chairs". The mayor and the city council signaled their agreement to the acquisition and also held out the prospect of a whiteboard for multimedia presentations and seminars. Last fall, the event with US artist james rizzi in october had to be canceled at short notice. Rizzi was seriously ill and died shortly afterwards. The people of buttenheim still have a pair of levi's 501 jeans painted by the artist shortly before his death. Burgermeister kalb estimates their art market value to be "well into the six-figure range.
