Peter maffay: corona deniers harm society

Rock star peter maffay sharply criticizes some fellow musicians’ comments on the corona pandemic. "People who deny corona are harming society. That is my conviction. And they don’t just harm themselves, but above all others," the 71-year-old told the podcast "die wochentester" of the "kolner stadt-anzeiger".

He considers the negation of an existing problem to be "completely wrong". "Corona is a circumstance that you have to accept because it is there. To deny it, I consider extremely dangerous and extremely wrong."

Recently, singer michael wendler (48, "egal") declared his withdrawal from the RTL show "deutschland sucht den superstar" (germany is looking for a superstar), citing the actions of the federal government and the media in the corona pandemic. On wednesday, nena (60) triggered controversial discussions about possible conspiracy theories with a ratselhaften post on instagram – her management emphasized, however, that nena does not count itself to the camp of the corona deniers. Colleague xavier naidoo (49) commented on the singer’s post; he himself has recently repeatedly appeared in connection with conspiracy myths.

Jens korn: “we must not throw sand in the eyes of the burghers”

Jens korn: 'we must not throw sand in the eyes of the burghers'

The picture on the wall behind the mayor’s desk was chosen with care by jens korn. A float hangs with all its body weight on the bar of its float hook. The scene is intended as a reminder that "I have to put my heart and soul into my office", says korn. For the past year, the 42-year-old has been mayor of wallenfels. He spoke to frankischer tag about demographic change, family lunches and what you can learn from markus soder.

The picture behind the desk is one of three rough-format photographs from the 1930s that the new mayor has hung in his office. All show scenes of wallenfels floats on the main near wurzburg. The one where a whole squad struggles to keep a plane on course calls for teamwork: "even a mayor can’t do anything on his own." The last one shows flober balancing on tree trunks that clearly divide the image diagonally. Having just as clearly structured content should be good for a mayor, too, says korn.

Mr. Korn, until a year ago you wanted to be mayor. Can you still understand that?
Jens korn: more than ever before. I enjoy this task very much.

After the winter, we want to make it supple

After the winter, we want to make it supple

In spring, otto bruckner from huttenheim gets back on his motorcycle like many others. Since 2000, the 75-year-old has been driving again. He gladly accepts tips from experienced driving instructors. It was therefore a matter of course for him to take part in the motorcycle safety training organized by the kitzingen traffic police in iphofen.

Not only for him. 208 motorcyclists – male and female, young and old – rode around the test tracks at the knauf company truck park in iphofen on saturday. "An insane number of participants," enthused norbert muller of the kitzingen district traffic watch and police department. "It was a complete success," he says happily together with his colleagues, because last year there had been 111 participants.

Without the numerous helpers the event would not have been possible, muller said and emphasized above all the driving instructors from the kitzingen driving schools, who received support from ochsenfurt. They were available with advice and assistance.

Bruckenau’s women fight off schweinfurt

Bruckenau's women fight off schweinfurt

FC bad bruckenau – TSV lohr II 27:25 (13:13).

Although FC bad bruckenau is on course for a surprisingly high finish in the upper district league, FC coach oliver hilbert-probeck remains relaxed: "our goal is to hold on to third place until the end of the season. Everything else is a bonus." Even after the hard-fought victory against the bavarian league reserve team from lohr, the sinnstadters are far from being overconfident. No wonder: the FC men are always struggling with rough fluctuations in performance, but at their home games in the romershag witch’s cauldron, they thrive on the emotionality that spills over from the stands onto the united team. TSV lohr II, with its fighting spirit, is already eyeing the landesliga again and was accordingly highly motivated against the sinnstadters. Hard work for the impartial maximilian muller and tobias schramm, who benefited from their bavarian league experience and did not lose their cool despite constant turbulence on the pitch. It was a dogged battle at eye level, with bad bruckenau rarely able to get their beloved tempo game rolling. Bruckenau had a rough time with the brawny all-rounder mischa bauer. The uncompromising lohr cover, which always looks static like a rock block, but ingeniously closes the gaps at its own circle, was also not particularly palatable to the FC players. It took a concentrated energy performance up to the last second to force the spessart handballers to their knees, who had traveled to rhon with a cash-strong squad. At the end, fans and players chanted together: "here reigns the F-C-B."Bit

Goals for bad bruckenau: simon dietrich (13/13), simon weiner (4), alexander bauer (4), nick schumm (3), michael muller (2), fabian peter (1).

Price for deusterareal negotiated

Price for deusterareal negotiated

A "little information" on the 33 million euro state archives construction project almost disappeared in the budget session of the kitzingen city council on thursday evening. Mayor siegfried muller announced the result of the negotiations on the sale of the building plot in the deuster area in passing: "we were able to agree on the price you had set."

Muller did not say how much the city could expect to receive. A draft contract with the real estate freistaat bavaria – a state-owned enterprise – is now being drawn up, the oberburg mayor said in response to an inquiry. The purchase of around 8,500 square meters on the 1.9-hectare site on the northern bypass would then be decided by the state parliament’s budget committee. He expects to sign the purchase agreement before the summer break, declared siegfried muller.

The new building of the state archives on the long-abandoned land is part of the home program of finance minister markus soder. The long-disputed move from wurzburg to kitzingen had been pushed forward and in december, during a visit to the town hall, he virtually promised the project.

Dfb boss keller on dfb women: coming back to top of the world

dfb boss keller on dfb women: coming back to top of the world

After an atmospheric and successful end to the season, the german women’s soccer team is once again optimistic about the future.

"It was a great end to the year," said national coach martina voss-tecklenburg after the convincing and highly deserved 2-1 (1-1) victory over england at wembley stadium in london. She added: "we are in the middle of a process, and it is far from over."

The quarterfinal defeat at the world championships in france and the resulting absence from the 2020 olympics in tokyo had put a severe damper on german women’s soccer, which had been accustomed to success for years, this summer. But the flawless start to the european championship qualifiers, with twelve points from four games and 31:0 goals, and the prestigious victory against england, the fourth-place team in the world cup, give hope of a return to their former strength.

The bwg is not moving fast enough

The bwg is not moving fast enough

At the annual meeting of the weisendorf civic electoral association (BWG), thomas rudel was confirmed in his office as chairman. Robert klose and florian lochner were unanimously elected as new deputies, and treasurer helmut schafer and secretary karoline schmidt will continue in their positions. The four assessors thomas schmidt, gunther vogel and bodo klose as well as florian lindner were also elected unanimously.
With a view to the local elections in 2020, chairman rudel asked that younger candidates be considered, because the BWG should remain fit for the future.
Karoline schmidt and walter ferbar as well as gunther vogel reported from the meetings of the municipal council. "Although we voted for funds every year, nothing has happened to the castle garden under mayor heinrich sub auber", explained municipal councillor schmidt with regard to the city's construction demand, and the bathing pond is becoming more and more of a never-ending story.

No end of topics in sight

Rough plans had also been made for the apartments planned for recognized refugees in the main street, but nothing was progressing because it was difficult to find tradesmen. In this context, karoline schmidt asked why an architect was needed at all for the call for tenders with a well-staffed construction office.
On the subject of the bus loop at the forest cemetery there is also no end in sight. Gunther vogel doubts that the expensive bus loop will result in a better utilization of the opnv buses. Karoline schmidt was cautiously optimistic about the planned ball sports hall. She hopes that the project will be realized soon, because far too much time has passed from the idea to the planning stage.
Further topics of the discussion were the continuation of the flat use plan "weisendorf 2030", which was also tackled in good time at the urging of the BWG, as was the expansion of the broadband network. Again it was criticized that the urgently needed construction of the fub- and cycle path at the erlanger strabe is still delayed and that there is little news about the extension of the building area gerbersleite.
Another topic was post-densification, which is being mercilessly exploited by certain investors, vogel criticized. There are construction hours at the kirchenstrabe and at the ruckseite "zur schwane", which was more or less waved through by the majority of the building committee. "The municipal councils should take a closer look at the site and the plan before making a decision, because under the guise of redensification, everything is being done", vogel argued. But there were also positive things, namely about the budget. Walter ferbar presented the most important figures and praised the extremely satisfactory budgetary management of the municipality.

Shift to the left expected in parliamentary elections in the czech republic

Shift to the left expected in parliamentary elections in the czech republic

The social democrats could thus become the strongest force and possibly govern the country with the support of the communists. "This country can’t stand any more right-wing reforms," party leader bohuslav sobotka said in a final debate. Voters can still cast their ballots on saturday.

Whether a red-red alliance between social democrats (CSSD) and communists (KSCM) will be enough in the end is a matter of suspense. It would be the first toleration of a government by the orthodox communists since the democratic change of 1989. Opponents spoke of a "dangerous signal" and a "jolt to the east".

Activists unveiled a giant caricature of russian president vladimir putin in protest at the site of a former stalin monument in prague. "We must not allow the dark past to repeat itself", they announced.

Olympic stage for bach’s re-election remains untouched

Olympic stage for Bach's re-election remains untouched

For thomas bach’s departure into his last term of office, the olympic stage in tokyo is to remain as unchanged as possible in 2021 as well.

Shortly after the president of the international olympic committee declared his renewed candidacy for the top job, the organizers of the summer games, which have been postponed until next year, announced that they would stick to the original arenas and schedules for the competitions. According to bach’s wishes, the "fundamental elements of the games" are to be preserved despite the consequences of the corona crisis. Olympia in tokyo will be a "symbol of resilience and hope," bach asserted.

With his announcement that he would seek re-election for the maximum possible four years, the 66-year-old from tauberbischofsheim had seriously disrupted the timetable of the IOC’s general assembly. Bach, who has been in office since 2013, was delighted to receive the long praise of the members of the ring circle at the session, which was organized for the first time as a video session. Rougher resistance or even an opposing candidate are hardly to be expected in the election planned for spring 2021.
