Dfb steamer in prestigious duel: netherlands takes revenge

Hamburg (dpa) – what a steamer: with hanging heads, joachim low’s young national team players strode off the pitch, while the hollanders celebrated the successful revenge in high spirits.

Despite the collective energy performance demanded by the national coach, the german soccer team suffered a bitter 2:4 (1:0) defeat in the prestigious duel against the netherlands and is once again under pressure on its way to the european championship in 2020.

"Holland was the better team over 90 minutes, we deserved to lose," said low on RTL. "Although we were leading 1:0, you never had the feeling that we were in control of the game." He was "disappointed" because the team had played "below our technical capabilities". "The hollanders were able to press, we played high balls. That was not the understanding of the game that we actually want."

the right mix should bring it to bruckenau's city forest

The schafberg above the industrial area, a forest stucco called gansrain. This is the "playground by joachim manke and birgit badde. The two employees of the forestry administration rupboden have been taking care of the city forest since july – and in the past few days they have dropped a lot of trees at the gansrain. "Normal thinning", manke calls it.

But that is not all. The gansrain is a good example of how the town forest of bad bruckenau is being made fit for the future. In september, manke and his colleague badde marked the trees that were to be removed. Afterwards, employees of the forestry company kohl from riedenberg jerked off with a machine called a harvester.

They "reaped the trees, as it is called in the jargon, freed from branches and roots "ruckten from the forest to the forest road. There they lie stacked now. The forest stand in which they stood is now adorned with many tree stumps. Only a few of the spruces seem to have remained standing.

How does bamberg cope with the climate??

How does bamberg cope with the climate??

There is only a hole in the ground left to remind us of the old oak tree. The thick tree that delighted walkers in the luitpold grove had at least 100 years on its bark, but it did not survive the drought of 2018 and 2019. When the old oak tree was no longer green in the summer of 2019, the city was forced to take action and remove the tree skeleton from the park with heavy equipment.

The disappeared climate witness on adenauerufer is just one tree among many in bamberg that fell victim to the auberge’s usual drought of the last two years. The garden department’s balance sheet, which will be presented to the city council for the first time today, speaks of loss of vitality, infestation by pests and more or less rapid dieback. Bamberg, according to the city administration, is one of germany’s rain-deficient areas. The water that can be used by plants has fallen by 1.80 meters in two years in the valley of the river regnitz.

And the drought has visibly affected the city’s ground: in 2019, a total of 310 trees had to be cut down and replaced in bamberg. Around 200 of them died as a result of climate change, experts say. What exacerbates the problem: even seemingly indestructible old trees are less and less able to withstand heating. So the loss also added up to a considerable number in the shady grove park: 80 old trees withered here in 2019.

Bad kissingen needs more housing

Bad kissingen needs more housing

There are many reasons why bad kissingen would be well advised to think about the present and future of the local housing market in good time. The city is growing. The core city in particular attracts people looking for housing. This growth will be maintained in particular by the addition. The importance of migrant workers from eastern europe is quite high in this respect. In addition, the trend of so-called household deconsolidation towards smaller households is strongly pronounced. All this women the city of bad kissingen. The statements described are the results of a housing market analysis that the city council commissioned from two urban planning and research firms, akp from kassel and protze+theiling from bremen.

The calculation of requirements is quite specific. 1,200 additional apartments are needed from 2018 to 2035, according to the two offices. That is just under 70 per year and corresponds according to the analysis approximately to what is currently built so.

However, it does not exactly fit with what is needed for the different areas of the market. This is a growing problem, especially for people who are dependent on cheaper housing. The analysis estimates the share of this part of the kissing population at 15 percent. Accordingly, the bureaus set the rough order of the need for affordable housing until the year 2035 at 180 apartments.

For people on low incomes, it has recently become more difficult to find affordable housing. Prices had increased not only in the owner-occupied sector. In the years 2015 to 2018, there was "hardly any affordable rental housing construction" given. The group of people who receive so-called transfer payments from the state, for example hartz IV, social welfare or training assistance, are inadequately provided with suitable housing in this way.
