Windheimer without internet

Many people from windheim tried in vain to log on to their internet on thursday and friday. At the same time, according to thomas reub from windheim, it was not possible to report the outage via the provider’s hotline. In his opinion, this is not possible.
The network affected was that of neftv, which has recently been operating under the pyur brand and offers high-speed internet in the munnerstadt area. The provider only found out about the network failure in windheim on friday after an inquiry from the city of munnerstadt. Thomas reub is not surprised. "No one could report the cancellation."
Thomas reub, who partly works from home, had no access to data stored in a cloud for more than 20 hours due to the outage. Another windheimer with a home office had a similar experience. The landline network, which was connected to the internet, was also paralyzed by the outage. All his efforts to report the fault by smartphone failed at the hotline. One did not get through, laments reub.

City informed companies

The city of munnerstadt did not know about the outage on friday morning either, although windheim’s local representative klaus schebler was also affected by the outage. The latter saw the situation rather calmly, because thanks to his cell phone he was able to cope with the breakdown over this long period of time. Rainer straub from the city’s building department was able to reach an employee of the company on friday to report the stoppage. He was then told that a member of staff would take care of him. On friday afternoon, rainer straub announced that windheim was back on the net and that the local representative had been informed. The failure was blamed on a fault in the circuitry.

560 Authors call for “digital rights convention

560 authors call for 'digital rights convention

The signatories of the appeal call for compliance with basic democratic rights on the internet – this should be ensured by the states and the UN. They criticize the fact that states and corporations can monitor every citizen to an unimaginable extent with just a few mouse clicks, while remaining intransparent themselves.

In the appeal, the authors demand that “every citizen must have the right to decide to what extent his personal data are collected, stored and processed and by whom; that he has the right to know where and for what purpose his data are collected; and that he can have them deleted if they have been illegally collected and stored”.”

To the frankfurter allgemeine zeitung, which, along with the guardian and 30 other newspapers worldwide, is publishing the appeal, the authors and co-initiators of the appeal, juli zeh and ilja trojanow, explain that it it’s about the conflict between the individual and absolute power under the new conditions of the information age.

Cyclist drunk and with hashish

In the night to tuesday, cyclists were checked during traffic controls in habfurt and zeil, because they were on the road without lighting. A 38-year-old man was found to have an odor of alcohol. A voluntary test revealed a value of 1.0 per mille. In addition, he lost a lump of hashish of 0.45 grams in front of the officers, which is why he is now facing charges for possession of narcotics.

A 36-year-old man, who was also driving in a serpentine manner and against the prescribed direction, was also found to have a strong odor of alcohol, whereupon a voluntary test revealed a value of 1.68 per mille. After a blood sample was taken, he was only allowed to push his bicycle.

The third cyclist was found with 0.6 grams of hashish and 0.1 grams of amphetamine in his shirt pocket, after the 31-year-old had not been able to identify himself and had been searched for an identity document.

Nordhalben first rough appearance

Nordhalben first rough appearance

Three months from now. On 27. September brings director michael "bully herbig after numerous comedies and satires such as "the shoe of manitu with "balloon his first thriller in german cinemas – and with him nordhalben.
The kloppelgemeinde was one of only four filming locations last october, along with munich, berlin and modlareuth, and plays a central role in the film as a backdrop for the thuringian town of pobneck. In 1979, the strelzyk and wetzel families assembled a balloon in which they made a spectacular escape from the former GDR. What the film team shot in nordhalben in the almost three weeks can be seen since thursday in the first official trainer of the film. Because in the two and a half minutes cut together, which are supposed to make people look forward to the start of the movie, several corners were allowed to look familiar to the residents – even if trabbis and wartburgs roll over the streets and the facades of the houses show clear signs of age. In order for the film to be as realistic as possible, set builders and scenographers were on the move in several corners of the market.

Popular motif

The garden vine appears in the trailer particularly often. Not only was an extra garage built, but two house facades were completely redesigned as well. From the bird's eye view you can also see the former bakery in the curve next to the town hall. But in the film it has become a pharmacy. The premiere can come.

Hochstadter put girlfriend in “absolute mortal fear

Hochstadter put girlfriend in

The policeman on the witness stand left no doubt about his opinion: "the woman was absolutely scared to death." his testimony was decisive for the verdict: one year and four months imprisonment for the defendant in the end. The prison sentence was not suspended because the convicted person has a criminal record.
At the continuation of the court hearing on domestic violence that had taken place in july and on christmas 2017 in hochstadt, everything then happened quite fast. At the last meeting, about two weeks ago, the injured party had put the incident into extreme perspective. Judge hagen forster had been very upset because her statements hardly coincided with those she had made to the police immediately after the incident.

The descriptions were plausible

On thursday, the officer from the hochstadt police department, who was on duty both times, gave a detailed account of what had happened. After the argument in july, the victim had cursed her way into a corner bar opposite the shared apartment. The host had called the police. When the witness arrived on the scene with his colleague, the defendant "aggressively shouted out of the window". Then he put on a silly grin, cracked his fingers and said that he was waiting for the police in the apartment, he would not let himself be arrested. When the time came – the officers had requested reinforcements for safety's sake – the man then accepted the punishment without resistance.
When the police officer went into the apartment with the victim because she wanted to pack some things, he discovered clear evidence of a "physical altercation" in the living room and bathroom. Everything matched the woman's description: that her partner threw a cup at her and locked her in the bathroom, where he then forced his way in. "The broken pieces of the cup were lying on a small table, the lock of the door was broken out and the door itself showed fresh splinters." also that she had protected herself with her wrist when he tried to hit her head against the mirror was plausible because of the swelling of the joint.
He also described the christmas incident as a traumatic experience for the victim, who, as he repeatedly emphasized, was "absolutely scared to death" had had. "I"ve only seen this kind of upset behavior in serious accidents where it was a matter of life and death." in such circumstances, in his opinion, no one can make up a story.
"Especially since I later questioned them back and forth at the police station. There were no inconsistencies, everything was conclusive." Besides, the corresponding injuries had been visible and had been photographed: hamatomas in the face, worm marks on both sides, a bloodshot eye, hamatomas on the back and in the chest area.

Problematic relationship

He was aware of the "problems of the relationship" between the two but quite aware of it, the policeman put on record. He himself had seen that the woman had moved back in with the defendant barely a week after the second incident. "And it was at this time also quite normal." He had also noticed that with a certain time interval the interest in prosecution was lost each time.
This was probably also the case at the last hearing, when the witness was supposed to testify in court. She downplayed everything extremely, the events were, according to lawyer thomas skapczyk, not provable with her testimony. He therefore pleaded for acquittal.
The prosecutor saw it differently – as did richer forster. The detailed and credible testimony of the police officer, as well as the photos that clearly document the injuries, both love to conclude that the accused must have mistreated the woman. If also not abschliebend could be clarified, what exactly had happened.
In addition, he had demonstrably insulted the policemen and the host of the corner pub. Whether he had also thrown a bottle at the host, could not be clarified. The host had not appeared as a witness, but this, according to judge forster, would not have been of further importance. The verdict is not yet legally binding.

"You can see how people long for classical music. I hope this radiates beyond the corona crisis and people remember what music meant to them at that time."

Nasa probe to take sample from asteroid bennu

Nasa probe to take sample from asteroid bennu

Osiris rex" is the first probe from the u.S. Space agency nasa to take a sample from an asteroid – and later deliver it to earth.

In a complicated manover lasting several hours, the probe is to approach the asteroid bennu to within a few meters and then take the sample with a kind of robotic arm.

The robotic arm, called "tagsam" (touch-and-go sample acquisition mechanism), will touch the surface of the asteroid for about five seconds and eject nitrogen under pressure. This is supposed to make the surface swirl. Then a sample of about 60 to 2000 grams is to be sucked up before the entire probe moves away from bennu again.

Forest owners are “in the middle of a disaster”

Forest owners are 'in the middle of a disaster'

"We must not give up fighting for our forest." With these clear words, birgitt ulrich, the managing director of the habberge forestry association (FBG), informed the numerous forest owners and interested parties attending the hartleb inn in maroldsweisach about the state of the local forest. And he is suffering.

With 880 members, the FBG is an association of private and municipal forest owners who own a total of 21,600 hectares of forest. So far, the annual cut has been 32,000 solid cubic meters, but this is changing due to the calamitates. "We are now at a point where forest conservation comes first", ulrich made clear, further sharpening her previous words. During a forest inspection in april of this year in the hofheim area, she was still talking about an imminent catastrophe. Even though the event, which was attended by federal member of parliament anja weisgerber, among others, shook up the political scene and the federal parliament is considering what to do, the FBG managing director has now spoken of the fact that "we are in the middle of a catastrophe". Ulrich urged those present to write letters to their deputies so that they continue to advocate for the forest and its owners.

Forester patrick valtenmeier showed what kind of damage spruce has to contend with. While last year there was an increase in the number of copper engravers in the region, which destroyed the forest, this year there was also the book printer. These two species attack the bark of the mainly weakened trees and multiply rapidly. Among the wood-breeding pests, the striped bark beetle has already been spotted, and even the douglas fir is no longer spared from pest infestation. On the other hand, the beech is particularly hard hit by the heat. There is deep drought damage, especially in south-exposed areas. Cracks in the soil cut through the vital dark roots of the trees. The oak tree, on the other hand, is suffering from the oak moth and the oak moth. When asked about alternative tree species, the forester could only answer that almost all tree species are infested by pests due to the heat damage.

Baseball hitter misused as a weapon

baseball hitter misused as a weapon

In order to decide the impending dispute in his favor, the 40-year-old, who has since been "incarcerated," brought in kai havertz, a baseball bat from his car. But he had not reckoned with the skill of his 51-year-old opponent, who took his sports equipment from him. But the opponent was not a professional baseball player either, he also failed to hit the ball.
The subsequent scuffle was so little relevant in terms of criminal law that the simple bodily injury against the hit man was discontinued. What remained was an attempted dangerous bodily injury, because a baseball bat is not only suitable for knocking balls out of place.
The 51-year-old’s criminal record was astonishing, with eleven convictions. Including traffic offences of all kinds, thefts and offences under the narcotics act. But his opponent also has some experience with the courts. He was handcuffed and fubfesselt. Narcotics offences had landed him in jail.
Since attorney ralph pittroff read out a declaration for his client in which the attempted dangerous bodily harm was admitted, the prosecution witness in prison clothing did not have to be questioned.
The verdict then fully corresponded to the request of prosecutor michael hoffmann. Judge sieglinde tettmann sentenced the defendant to a fine of 900 euros. A high price for a failed hit with the baseball hit, but a mild sentence for a notorious offender.
