Theater director kusej and politics

theater director kusej and politics

The future director of vienna’s burgtheater, martin kusej, expects to face some politically motivated headwind when he takes office in the fall.

"As a personage, i am already per se a kind of political exclamation mark. The fact that I’m running the burgtheater is certainly a red rag to certain circles in vienna," the outgoing director of the resident theater in munich told the german press agency. "It didn’t take long for the reactionary know-it-alls to come out of hiding in blogs and newspapers. When I start work in september, and of course I don’t mince my words, this will certainly increase."

Kusej leaves the bayerische staatsschauspiel after eight years. His successor at the resi will be andreas beck from the theater basel. Theater must be political, kusej believes, even in austria, where he grew up as part of the slovenian minority in carinthia. "This has nothing to do with left-wing liberalism. These stereotypical distinctions in "right-wing" and "left" do not interest me.

Happy new year: the people of kitzingen buried the year 2013

Happy new year: the people of kitzingen buried the year 2013

Numerous kitzingen residents buried the year 2013 with a colorful fireworks display on tuesday night. In contrast to the previous year, which had started with continuous rain, this time the sky was only slightly cloudy and the thermometer showed three degrees plus – in other words, ideal weather for letting it rip. Many people did the same, but no longer in front of and on the old main bridge, where fewer and fewer people gather every year. While there were around 400 people at the turn of the year 2011/ 2012, this year an estimated 300 mostly young people came to celebrate together, toast the new year or send their new year’s wishes via cell phone. Shortly before midnight, rockets rose into the night sky over almost the entire city, but also from the terraces on the garden show grounds, bathing the city in bengal light and turning night into day. The colorful and noisy spectacle lasted for just under an hour, after which quiet returned fairly quickly. It was pleasing to see that this time there were hardly any alcoholized young people among the party people and that the ban on setting off fireworks in the old town was largely observed. Police and fire department had operations nevertheless (see report below). The red cross was also well occupied, as district manager harald erhard announced. Especially in the early morning hours, all four ambulances in the district of kitzingen were almost continuously on the road, mainly because of typical things like excessive alcohol consumption or injuries caused by bangers.

Trittin responsible under press law for padophilia demand

In gossenberg lies the soil of the future

In gossenberg lies the soil of the future

It's events like the one in merkendorf a good 14 days ago that make anton weig bright-eyed from a professional point of view. In the district of bamberg, a thunderstorm caused considerable damage at the end of august – in particular due to soil that was spooled into the town from agricultural land. "The fields could not hold the water", explains weig, crop consultant at the coburg office for agriculture. And he even knows how to prevent such occurrences.
Together with sebastian schultheib (22), whom he is teaching in advanced training to become a master farmer, anton weig oversees a field between neuses an den eichen and gossenberg. There, corn grows, which is particularly susceptible to soil erosion. But on sebastian schultheib's six hectares, the problem does not exist. Anton weig walks through the row of two-and-a-half-meter-high plants and, looking down at the earth, says with satisfaction: "pressure-resistant and full of pores, that's how we want it."
The fact that the soil is also capable of storing even coarser amounts of precipitation is primarily not due to weig and not to schultheib. This is due to earthworms, which are found in large numbers in the soil and make it permeable to water with their tubes. They have come in droves because – even now in autumn – they find plenty of food on the fub of the corn plants. "With organic matter on the surface, I feed my soil life", explains anton weig.
Sebastian schultheib already attracted the soil-dwelling creatures last fall. He has sown an intercrop in the field after the harvest, the remains of which have been left since the spring after surface tillage. Anton weig shows what has become of it: he takes a small pile of dead plant material from the ground, and a worm tube becomes clearly visible directly below it. The plant residues are the worm's food supply, so to speak.
Intercrops such as mustard or horseradish are not only important as food for soil organisms, they also cover and protect the soil from heavy rainfall in autumn and winter. How these affect, female anton weig from experience: "per liter of precipitation hit on a square meter up to 13000 raindrops." Especially during heavy rainfall events, the high kinetic energy with which the drops literally hit the ground and cause erosion should not be underestimated.
Well protected in winter, well aerated in summer thanks to the earthworms – sebastian schultheib's cornfield comes very close to the ideal image from agricultural teaching. "Like a sponge, says weig, the soil has to be strong enough for heavy agricultural vehicles to drive on. Weig and schultheib quickly determine how much water the soil can absorb: they pour water into a metal ring that is printed into the ground. The more permeable the soil, the faster the water disappears. After three watering cans full of water that seeps into the soil in less than three minutes, the crop cultivation expert nods with satisfaction and calculates: "that was 60 liters per square meter."
Standing next to the small experimental set-up in the middle of the field is wolfgang schultheib – sebastian's father and, he says himself, "from the days of the 35-horsepower tractors" originating. He could not have imagined the mass of the earthworms and the permeability of the soil in such a way. Wolfgang schultheib also recalls from the time of his training: "mulch attracts worms."

The question of the auand

However, one must not forget, says schultheib senior, that the time and technical effort required to use catch crops is already greater than without them. Anton sways his head a bit inconclusively until he finds the right formulation: "let's say: the management rope is a bit higher than the one on the other." In the long run, however, this is put into perspective, especially in dry years. Corn is the crop where the farmer is most likely to suffer harvest losses. "In terms of yield, we are much more stable", sebastian agrees with his trainer.

TV tip

A team from bavarian television accompanied sebastian schultheib's experiment. A report on the project is on friday, 15. September, at 7 p.M. On the program "our country to see.

Bayernlb sues for damages in the millions of dollars

bayernlb sues for damages in the millions of dollars

Landesbank is demanding compensation from the two former chairmen of the board of directors for the multi-billion euro mis-selling of austrian hypo group alpe adria (HGAA), the administrative courts in munich and wurzburg confirmed on wednesday. The FDP, which governs with the CSU, and the opposition in the state parliament buried the move.

In addition to the former chief supervisors faltlhauser and naser, the state bank has also sued the ex-board members for 200 million euros. However, the head of the state chancellery and former chairman of the bayernlb investigation committee, thomas kreuzer (CSU), is skeptical about the chances of success of the lawsuits. "I have always said that i consider this difficult," kreuzer said after the cabinet meeting on wednesday. But the complaints are not a matter for the state government, but for the state bank.

The lawsuits had been expected for months. The "main-post" and the "suddeutsche zeitung" (wednesday) had reported on the entry.
