Frankfurt had taken over the show about the expressions of muslim fashion all over the world from san francisco. Conceived by the former frankfurt museum director max hollein.

Some of the accusations were that those responsible had turned themselves into "useful idiots of political islam" and were "stooges of women’s oppression.

Barclays boss under massive pressure after interest rate scandal

Barclays boss under massive pressure after interest rate scandal

The dubious dealings of one of london’s leading financial institutions have also reignited the debate about the lack of regulation of players in europe’s largest financial center.

Barclays must pay the record sum of 290 million pounds (around 345 million euros) to financial regulators in the u.S. And the u.K. And to the u.S. Department of justice. The settlement is part of an investigation involving several major banks in europe and the u.S. Among others, deutsche bank is also said to be in the sights of regulators. Barclays shares lost up to 17 percent in phases on thursday. Other bank stocks also fell.

Barclays is said to have tried to influence the so-called libor rate. It indicates the interest rate at which banks lend money to each other. But it is also used as a benchmark for derivatives trading, which moves securities with a book value of well over 300 billion U.S. Dollars – more than the gross domestic product of all the countries in the world. A tiny change in interest rates can trigger huge swings. In addition, barclays has tried to preserve its own creditworthiness in times of financial crisis by keeping the libor rate artificially low.

The 60th Anniversary Weeks ended with six expert lectures

After four weeks and around 150 events, the 60+ campaign weeks came to an end with the closing event in the meeting room of the district administration office in kitzingen. District administrator tamara bischof draws a positive balance at the closing event. There are currently 938 seniors over 90 years of age living in the district, she noted. At the 50. Senior citizens’ afternoon in 2020, even 100-year-old guests may be expected.

The main theme of the campaign weeks "provision for old age – perfectly organized" picked up on a theme that attracted a lot of interest. On "grandchildren’s tricks and rip-offs for seniors markus bursch from the criminal investigation department in wurzburg, germany, said. Thieves want to get money as unobtrusively as possible with a trick, bursch explains. That is why they seek physical closeness. It is therefore important to keep pocket and jacket closures closed and to carry money and cash cards close to the body," says heinz schmidt. As for visitors to the boulevard, he urged caution. A willingness to help and compassion for fundraisers and craftsmen should not lead to letting strangers into one’s home.

Preparing for life as a pensioner

Debtor and insolvency counselor elisabeth schmitt from the district office warned that many new retirees are not sufficiently prepared for changed life circumstances such as the start of retirement, loss of income or the loss of a partner. As a result, one in ten people will no longer be able to meet their payment obligations in old age, as pensions and unemployment benefits will be significantly lower than their previous income. Schmitt advised to recognize supply shortages in time and also to keep a budget book. Loans should also be paid off before the start of retirement.

north korea ready for new nuclear talks with u.s

North korea agrees to renewed talks with the USA on the dismantling of its nuclear weapons program, subject to conditions.

North korea’s deputy eaves minister choe son hui made clear in a statement that her government continued to expect new proposals from washington that would satisfy pjongjang. Should the U.S. Side again "play around with the worn-out scenario," it could mean the end of relations, choe was quoted as saying by state media. U.S. President donald trump called the message from pjongjang "interesting" but initially left open whether a meeting could take place soon.

Sammer: low will remain national coach even if he quits the em

"The result can’t be so catastrophic that the high-quality job that jogi has been doing for a long time now is judged completely differently without a european championship success," sammer told the news magazine "focus".

Anyway, the former national player expects a successful european championship in poland and ukraine. "Under jogi lows’ leadership, the national team has made excellent progress, which has long received the highest international recognition. The components in the german game are right, so we have every right to hope for the title," sammer said.

In the european championship, the german national team will kick off on 9. June in group B against portugal. Other opponents are the netherlands and denmark. Sammer sees the german soccer federation (DFB) squad as well prepared for another clash with world and european champions spain. "I know that jogi has a suitable strategy ready should we meet spain again," said sammer.

Lanterns disrupt the mating season of birds

Lanterns disrupt the mating season of birds

"They also begin to sing and molt sooner." The researchers had observed 40 male blackbirds (turdus merula).

According to the team, the light conditions in cities can thus significantly influence the seasonal rhythm of urban animals. Because in many animal species the length of the day determines, for example, sleeping habits or even the breeding season. In birds living in cities, these rhythms could be disrupted because artificial light sometimes leads to extreme light conditions, the researchers said.

In order to measure the average illumination to which the birds are exposed at night, scientists led by researcher jesko partecke equipped several urban blackbirds with light sensors. "The intensities were very low at 0.2 lux – only one-thirtieth of what a typical street lamp emits," says partecke. But even such low values were enough to make the gonads of male blackbirds ripen earlier.

Miami as a sample without wm value for dfb-elf

Miami as a sample without wm value for dfb-elf

The latino community is roughly in the southeasternmost corner of the USA. The best salsa bands play at la casa de tula, brazilian bars and cuban restaurants were also allowed to catch the eye of joachim low and his players in miami.

But the german national team’s tour of the USA cannot be regarded as a sample or at least a small rehearsal for the soccer world cup in brazil in a year’s time. "We have 2013. I am now being asked who is favored in brazil. Are the germans the top favorite? A lot happens in a year, as you’ve seen now," the national coach emphasized.

Low doesn’t just want to blame the lineup of the DFB’s showcase team for the lack of world cup value. Because of the german champions league final between bayern and dortmund in london, some 7,000 kilometers away, and the club commitments of other regulars, he traveled to the U.S. With a B selection at the very most.
