Sweden “happy and proud” after victory

Sweden 'happy and proud' after victory

After a successful start to the world cup, the relieved swedes immediately set their sights on another goal. "Germany is the next opponent we want to beat," coach janne andersson said after his charges’ 1-0 start against sudkorea.

Saturday’s duel with the stumbling world champions in sochi is taking on an explosive quality not thought possible: the swedes can knock out the defending champions with a win. This would have been the first first-round exit for germany in its glorious world cup history – and the second win in the second match would probably mean a safe qualification for the eighth finals for the three-crowned team.

"They have to win now, it won’t be easy," warned matchwinner andreas granqvist, who scored the winner with a penalty kick (65 minutes) in a low-scoring match against very weak asians. Minute) the decision was made by. "It’s wonderful that we won. But mexico’s win makes the group a little tougher for us," said the 33-year-old captain, who also impressed as a tackler and leader.

Sebastian stastny gives ebern's csu a pass

After 18 years, there will be a change in the mayor's seat in 2014. But at the CSU in ebern, the search for a successor for robert herrmann (63) is still completely open. "A heiben kandidat" there is no such thing. This is what local chairwoman gabriele rogner freely confesses.

The second burgermeister refuels between the years for a few days at the north sea. After own avowal it wants to breathe again, before "the heibe phase of the election preparations begins.

The energy turnaround falls on seehofer’s face

The energy turnaround falls on seehofer's face

A year ago, the rapid nuclear phase-out by 2022 was supposed to be a winning issue for the CSU – but in the meantime, party leader horst seehofer is falling for the energy turnaround. At every opportunity, seehofer complains about the lack of progress in berlin; in unison with economics minister martin zeil (FDP), he warns of the dangers for bavaria. In an act of obvious helplessness, seehofer wrote in the "suddeutsche zeitung" that the accused had not yet been charged in the meantime, even a new state-owned bayernwerk has been brought into play – even though the state electricity monopoly has been irrevocably abolished and such a revived state-owned company would in all likelihood write high losses under the current conditions.

"When it comes to very important questions – which come up once every one or two years – you have to drive", seehofer said in may 2011 – and led the CSU down a path that a majority in the party executive did not want to take. At a turbulent CSU executive board meeting in kloster andechs, seehofer forced his rebellious party friends to their knees and committed the CSU to an exit date of 2022. An early phase-out is feasible and realistic, seehofer said many times.

But it is now becoming very clear that the energy turnaround in the form promised by seehofer is neither feasible nor realistic. The state government’s energy concept has several key points: the expansion of renewable energies to 50 percent of bavarian electricity production by 2020, the construction of four to five new gas-fired power plants to replace shut-down nuclear power plants, and the expansion of high-voltage transmission lines. Bavaria should continue to cover its own electricity needs, and electricity should not become more expensive.
