Energy in your own hands

Energy in your own hands

Marco meissner a glance at his cell phone is followed by a satisfied smile. The blue rectangles on the display show pleasing figures for the fischer family. Although the sun is overcast at times, the solar system on the roof delivers a good amount of electricity. Jurgen fischer uses an app to keep a close eye on everything: how much energy is being produced and where it’s going.

The fischers need electricity from their solar system for their own use. Even the heating of the old house runs with it. And because they need cheap energy on the one hand, but don’t want to put an unnecessary burden on nature on the other, they have taken a new path. Jurgen, beate and their son tobias fischer are the 500. In upper franconia, which relies on a special storage and network system from the company sonnen. Its storage tank supplies it with "green" energy around the clock electricity; the network helps you and the other members to overcome weak phases. "I’ve been interested in photovoltaics for ten years", explains jurgen fischer. However, the unfavorable orientation of his house had initially prevented him from investing in a solar system. Through a musician colleague he then became aware of sonnen.

Low space requirement

Modern solar modules that work well even in bad weather, as well as a battery solution in the basement that takes up little space, love him a rethink. The system is "rounded off by an intelligent network". Over it uberproduktionen of a member can be passed on to others, with which the energy production straight smaller fails. And sonnen, for its part, can park electricity in the members’ storage facilities so that excess production is not lost. Jurgen fischer also has these energy movements in front of him at all times via app.

Eu court puts the brakes on driver’s license tourism

Eu court puts the brakes on driver's license tourism

But then the driver’s license must be valid even if the owner previously failed the so-called idiot test in germany and was therefore no longer allowed to drive a car. This was decided by the european court of justice (eugh) in luxembourg on thursday (rs. C-467/10).

In the case in question, the german authorities had refused to issue a young man with a driving license from the outset – the psychological report had shown that he was physically and mentally unfit to drive. There is evidence of a high potential for aggression. The man had several previous convictions for driving without a license, aggravated extortion, threatening behaviour and insulting behaviour. He had more success in the czech republic, where the authorities issued him a driver’s license. Germany, however, refused to recognize the document

Rightly so, ruled the highest EU judges – even though a european directive stipulates that driving licenses are generally mutually recognized within the EU. Germany is allowed to refuse recognition if "on the basis of indisputable information" it is established that the holder of the driving license did not actually reside in the country in which the driving license was issued. In the case in question, the czech authorities had confirmed that the man had not been registered in the country at the time the driver’s license was issued.

For the fourth time, the bavarian red cross, habberge district association, together with more than 100 red cross clothing stores in bavaria, is organizing an open house on tuesday, 8. May (world red cross day), under the motto "rediscover valuable materials" the "day of the store" campaign. With this day, the red cross is also making a plea for sustainability and social cohesion, as can be seen from a message from the habberge district association of the bavarian red cross (BRK).

For more environmental awareness

"We are making an important contribution to slowing the depletion of raw materials. The issues of sustainability and environmental awareness are of great social importance and are at the same time positive features of our BRK clothing store, and they perform an important function as a social meeting place for our society", emphasizes BRK vice president, brigitte meyer.
According to a study, each german buys about 60 new pieces of clothing per year. For example, increased carrying time reduces carbon dioxide emissions. "In order to reduce plastic consumption, we ask our customers to bring their own plastic bags or tote bags. Apart from that, customers can also purchase self-made recycled tutes made by the participants of the production school", says the head of the production school of the BRK-kreisverband habberge, karina hauck.
The topic of sustainability and environmental awareness is a positive feature of the BRK- kleiderladen and especially of the production school habberge. The clothing store of the production school, the first in bavaria, was opened in 2005.

For young people

Since 2005, young people between the ages of 15 and 25 who have not yet developed their own career prospects and have not yet found an apprenticeship or a job have been learning under professional guidance how to produce, sell and market marketable goods and services at the production school. Working hours and activities are based on everyday industrial working life. In addition to gaining qualifications through practical and theoretical training, production school students have the opportunity to expand and consolidate their knowledge and skills in general education and life skills learning modules, and to obtain their basic secondary school certificate or the qualifying secondary school certificate.

A welcome money blessing for the fc 05

A welcome money blessing for the fc 05

Spvgg oberfranken bayreuth – FC 05 schweinfurt 1:3 (1:2). Goals: 0:1 kevin fery (9.), 1:1 kristian bohnlein (19.), 1:2 florian pieper (41.), 1:3 adam jabiri (73.).
Well, then have a nice whitsun, FC 05. The schweinfurt team was flattered to have been knocked out of the cup by the late cup winners eintracht frankfurt on saturday. And then two days later they promptly qualified for the first round again. Highly deserved, to boot: in the bavarian cup final, the 3:1 (2:1) victory of the third-placed team in the regional league against their league colleagues spvgg oberfranken bayreuth, who still have to go through the relegation process, was never really threatened.

For winning and defending the title won in burghausen in 2017, the club received a check for 5,000 euros from nurnberg’s promotion coach michael kollner, and around 150,000 euros for qualifying for the main round. "This makes it easier for us to find additional personnel", 05-president markus wolf already unpacked the slide rule. "We are negotiating with three or four high-caliber players, we want to do something offensively, especially on the eaves." First, wolf announced the signing of midfield all-rounder noah schorn from the bundesliga U19 team of TSG hoffenheim.

Also an image gain

Coach gerd klaus, of course, felt that the renewed image gain from the cup victory was even more important than the material gain: "this is the best advertising medium for the city and the club. We are nationwide not yet so prasent, but there one speaks again of schweinfurt." At the moment of triumph, klaus was quite indifferent to the fact that a prominent opponent would be an added bonus: "wolfsburg, maybe, because my nephew felix will be playing there in the future. Gescheiter is but perhaps a beatable zweitligist. Only not necessarily sandhausen again, especially since they will certainly not underestimate us again." Hort, hort, one does not suspect itself thus sporty so far from the second league grey zone away. No wonder that klaus ("we want to climb a league higher in one or two years") and wolf ("after cup win and place three came cup win and place two – at least").
Yes, yes, the schweinfurt officials could play down the game as much as they wanted: in the end, the success or failure of this 2017/18 season depended on this final game. And that was also noticeable to the team. Highly focused they went into the game, struggled early for control and also created chances with offensive fubball. And since the bayreuth did the same despite funferkette behind, but with three strikers at least half an hour, a nice game developed. And something like that is more convenient for the FC 05 than an opponent’s tactics. It almost looked as if the guests were going to lead the way to the clear victory expected by many fans. After a determined start, kevin fery fired from 25 meters and his shot bounced off the bottom of the crossbar to make it 0:1 into the net.

"The adventures of eduard speck" (john saxby), which he read on friday to the class 3c of the st. Hedwig elementary school prepared actually have little to do with putting out fires or rescuing cats.

The story about the lazy farmyard pig still grabs the children who are sitting in the snowy seat on top of the fire truck. The third and fourth hours of school are reserved for listening today. Because all over germany children listen to stories.

Six stations

The annual nationwide reading day is an initiative of the stiftung lesen with other partners. The elementary school st. Hedwig sends her third and fourth graders out of school into the city this year: volunteers read to them from books at six stations. Without any sound effects or 3D animation. Ungerer already liked to read to his own two children in the evenings before they went to bed. Today, only the time of day and the fire suit make the difference.
