Zahes struggle for compromise on eu banking supervision

Zahes struggle for compromise on eu banking supervision

Discussions were expected to continue well into the night.

In the debt crisis, central supervision of banks in the euro zone should restore confidence in the industry. The project has been the subject of dispute for months. Supervision is a prerequisite for direct financial injections into ailing banks from the ESM bailout fund.

At the crucial meeting of EU treasurers, irish finance minister michael noonan said the department heads had a corresponding german-french paper on hand. "It looks as if there is now at least a basis for a compromise."German finance minister wolfgang schauble (CDU) and his french counterpart pierre moscovici also expressed confidence and confirmed intensive contacts in recent days.

Better to save money voluntarily

Better to save money voluntarily

There is no reason to panic! The representatives of the water supplier assure us of this, and the administrative community of marktleugast sees their request to perhaps refrain from washing the car or sprinkling the lawn as merely a friendly appeal.
Well-intentioned – but whether it’s any good? In theory, we are all in favor of conserving resources, avoiding waste and saving energy.
What happens in practice, on the other hand, is sometimes horrifying. Even in the hottest summer, the lawn is trimmed to three millimeters – and then watered so that it doesn’t dry out. The leftovers from a barbecue at a friend’s house are carefully wrapped in several layers of aluminum foil and carried home, even though it would have been easy to take a couple of fresh-keeping cans with us.
And even when no one is at home, the gardens are illuminated like a medium-sized amusement park in the summertime. With LED lights. Because it is more economical.
There are so many ways to save a little, even on the small things, if you’re serious about protecting the environment. But in the end, none of us wants to get out of our personal comfort zone.
Until the friendly requests are followed at some point by bans and bubble money.

Ex-hsh chief nonnenmacher attacks prosecutors

ex-hsh chief nonnenmacher attacks prosecutors

The former HSH finance and executive board chairman said this in his roughly 45-minute declaration on monday before the 8. Gross criminal division of the hamburger landgericht (regional court). It was the only moment when nonnenmacher even looked at prosecutor karsten wegerich. He was only prepared to answer the court’s questions, nonnenmacher added. "There is a need for further clarification," replied presiding judge marc tully. The court would try to structure its questions.

Nonnenmacher and his former colleagues on the board of management stand trial on suspicion of embezzlement in a particularly serious case. He must also answer for misrepresentation – accounting fraud. What is in dispute is the "omega 55" loan transaction from december 2007, with which HSH nordbank wanted to relieve its balance sheet and which ultimately led to high losses. Nonnenmacher pointed out that as head of finance at the time he had not been responsible for "omega 55. "I was not personally involved in the planning, preparation, design, implementation and monitoring of the transaction at any time."

From the front row of the dock, the ex-HSH chief kept taking his eyes off the manuscript and looking at the judges, confidently reciting what he had to say. He spent a large part of his life trying to lead HSH out of an existential crisis for which he was not responsible and to stabilize it again, said nonnenmacher. "Therefore, the idea that i could have approved or not approved a transaction that may have involved an unacceptable risk of damage to hsh nordbank ag is absurd."

Granny scam fails: preservation

granny scam fails: preservation

Since 2017, a group of perpetrators disguised as police officers has been depriving elderly citizens of their savings. In june of last year, two couriers were caught by the police in coburg when they handed over the money. The kronach criminal court has now sentenced the two men to terms of imprisonment for attempted commercial fraud and aiding and abetting respectively.

The reason for the lenient sentences are comprehensive confessions that the 37-year-old and the 38-year-old made at the beginning of the trial. This eliminates the five days of trial that were planned for the taking of evidence.

According to the report, the two accused worked for a gang specializing in a domestic fraud scheme. According to the report, the people behind the attacks are based in turkey and call elderly citizens in germany whose accounts they have hacked beforehand. Last summer, the phone of a woman from coburg also rang several times, with an alleged police officer from "soko rumanien" answering the other end of the line." In order to appear credible, the "policeman" led the way the woman goes on to become a "criminal consultant and a "criminal investigator."

Clubhouse becomes a temple of dance

Clubhouse becomes a temple of dance

The organizers of the hangover party, presented by the planet nurnberg discotheque, had a rare run on the clubhouse on saturday evening. "That was a great party in the clubhouse, there has never been anything like it in herzi before", sven meschede, a student from herzogenaurach, said enthusiastically shortly before the end of the party.
And not only he liked the event, but also many other guests like nina ziegler and steffen reck: "a really cool party, they can do something like that here more often!" That's what marco schlegel from hochstadt thinks: "it looks a little different here than it did at our free speech party in july.", he praised the lighting technique, which used multicolored lasers and moving heads.
This or similar are the opinions of most of the several hundred guests who came to dance and celebrate. Even a whole bus from hochstadt arrived and brought good-humored guests to the event. The advertising on facebook had already been stopped on wednesday after the organizers and the city of herzogenaurach had received concerns about too many visitors. The security staff and the team of organizers had the hangover party under control at all times.
However, a few people had their evening spoiled before it started: they didn't know how to behave, and the team cracked down on them as announced beforehand. "Unfortunately, some young people lack the understanding of certain rules that apply to the safety of all visitors. In their eyes, everything and every detail had to be discussed, which led to enormous problems in the entrance area at the beginning of the event", reported dominik von falkenhausen, the event's youth protection officer. Overall, however, everything remained peaceful.

A straightened end

The organizers also praised the good cooperation with the city of herzogenaurach. Mayor german hacker (SPD) and heike kraus from the public order department were open to the idea of leaving the bar open for a while after the dance music ended, so that not all the guests would go home at once and there would be a risk of lambing.
There was also good cooperation at the three bars. A couple of professionals from planet nurnberg and some full-year students of the Q12 of the gymnasium herzogenaurach each served the drinks. The schoolchildren received a considerable amount of money to finance their graduation ball. But it wasn't just serving drinks and hanging up jackets that was on the agenda for the 40 or so employees. They also had to clean up the mess left behind on the parking lot and in the back alley so as not to cause any trouble with the residents or the city of herzogenaurach. This had top priority.
From half past one the music became quieter, the ban on dancing due to the national day of mourning took effect, but the guests were not thrown out. The bar in the main hall and on the gallery, which was converted into a chill-out area with deck chairs and bar tables, was open until a quarter to three. Here the party guests could have a drink or two before heading home.
The desire of the young people for a repetition of this event is rough, as could be heard. The organizers want to consult with the city about the matter.

Subsidy for bicycles not legal

Regarding the motion on bicycle leasing for city employees, which the CSU and JU city council factions would like to present at the main and finance committee meeting on 23. After having dealt with the issue on july 1, mayor german hacker (SPD) is now speaking out. He explained that the motion had been submitted too late for the thursday meeting and could therefore only be dealt with at the following meeting.

According to hacker, the city administration has been trying for years to make the topic of "bicycle leasing for employees" a reality, which has been widely used by private employers for several years, for themselves and their employees. It is not a question of the availability of offers from leasing partners; there is also interest among employees. Unfortunately, the problem lies in a completely different area, which is why it could not be implemented until now: municipal employers lack the legal basis for this, so that a subsidy is formally a "misappropriation of funds" SHOW. There are cases in germany, according to hacker, where cities have been reported for this and are now facing fines.

It would be desirable if the necessary legal basis for this were created.However, this is not to be expected – also according to a current query with the municipal employers’ association KAV. When dealing with the application, it would be possible to give a more detailed answer, but the core statement "legal basis is missing" would remain exist.

Boomland brazil: the federal league turns away

Boomland brazil: the federal league turns away

The manager of internacional porto alegre had recently tried hard to get bremen defender naldo to return to brazil. And even if he has failed for the time being, the case of naldo proves that the importance of brazil as an eldorado for the bundesliga and european soccer is changing radically. "The brazilian market is no longer interesting for the bundesliga," says vfb stuttgart sports director fredi bobic. Allofs can only confirm this: "this is a new situation, that’s for sure. For players is now also there a lot of money available."

The economic boom and the prospect of the 2014 world cup in brazil have triggered two developments at the same time. Players from the country of the record world champions are now difficult for european clubs to pay for or even attract. And brazilian players in europe are increasingly drawn back to their homeland. The wunderkind neymar cancelled even real madrid to stay with his club FC santos. Conversely, former star ronaldinho moved back from AC milan to flamengo rio de janeiro at the age of 30.

There are also numerous signs of this trend in the bundesliga. FC bayern munchen had recently declared that it would discontinue its scouting in brazil. Even bayer leverkusen, which for years maintained the best connections there and regularly brought stars like emerson or ze roberto to germany, last signed a pro from the sugar loaf (renato augusto) in 2008. While there were 36 brazilians playing in the bundesliga at the time, there are now only 20.

Felix muller crucifix in forth has its place again in the center of the faithful

Felix Muller crucifix in forth has its place again in the center of the faithful

"Felix muller was very happy today." Peter lichtenberger, who is in charge of the felix muller museum in neunkirchen am brand, was convinced of this at the blessing of the restored felix muller corpus in the parish center in forth (erlangen-hochstadt district). Numerous believers came to celebrate the dedication of the unique corpus. The beam on which christ hung is still missing, cannot be hung up. Even the crown was not yet on jesus’ head. This had also been restored and is now again in the original green tone designed. Pastor andreas hornung put the crown of thorns on the saint’s head. Not painful, but moved.

Restoration made possible

The fact that the corpus now once again has its place in the center of the faithful – in winter, weekday mass is celebrated in the separate hallway of the parish center – is thanks to norbert jung of the archdiocese in bamberg. It made the restoration possible, but also the raiffeisenbank, which gave a grant, and also peter lichtenberger. For this the pastor thanked cordially. "No money of the church foundation was used by the rough-hearted sponsors", emphasized church administrator renate siebenkas, who still remembered well the time when this felix muller cross was brought to its present place and when during the kindergarten renovation the children played with legos under the protection of jesus. The crucifix was created in 1937, as lichtenberger explained. Felix muller (1904 to 1997), who at that time still lived in langenzenn, already had contacts with neunkirchen and stockach. There, pastor trauner led the parish, and this priest had the courage to have this christ created during the nazi era. Soon after, the clergyman was transferred.

Sensation of the nazis aroused

Felix muller, however, already attracted the attention of the nazis with the way of the cross in the bavarian forest and was attacked. Also the christus in the church kreuzerhohung in forth had to be suspended, was loosened from the beam and put behind the organ. "Felix muller was therefore "deafened", said lichtenberger. And he was so happy because the corpus has now found its place again.
