Michael lane must run against gil ofarim

Slowly, routine returns to michael lane's daily life as a candidate. While he was still insanely nervous in the first round of the casting show, he is now, shortly before his second major live appearance, trying to take things in his stride. "I just don't stress so much anymore", says michael in an interview with our site.

In the first live show, michael had to compete against his teammate brandon stone – and sang "seven days by craig david, a song that brandon of all people had suggested to him while making music together. Michael wanted to show a different, new side of himself, but coach xavier naidoo didn't like it very much: he gave brandon more points than michael. It was only thanks to calls from michael's fans that the frenchman was able to make it to the quarterfinals of the show after all. "Xavier said to me that the song didn't suit me, that I should show more feeling and that I should choose my own songs", says michael.

This advice was taken by the sympathetic ex-soldier. With "angel by sarah mclachlan the 26-year-old again puts everything on rough feelings. This also clearly distinguishes him from his opponent in the show, the ex-teenie star gil and son of abi ofarim, who delivers more rock performances.

Newcomers ask for “kerwa dance”

Newcomers ask for 'kerwa dance'

"At the kerchweih, a win is mandatory, the three points should definitely stay in sonnefeld."
The usually rather reserved bastian renk is rightly more euphoric than usual ahead of the sonnefeld festival weekend and is naturally hoping for a corresponding crowd again in sunday’s landesliga home game against rising star spvgg erlangen.
Moreover, he said, the luck has come back. After a strong performance against schwabach, his team needed luck goddess fortuna in the final phase for the unexpected three-goal victory. The equalizing goal of the hosts was several times in the air, but with a strong fighting performance, an outstanding goalkeeper patrick jauch and just the famous quantchen it was again enough for something payable.
Now it’s back to the drawing board for the up-and-coming player against a direct competitor for the places in the rear midfield. The spvgg erlangen started well as a promoted team and had a little slack in the last weeks. So while TSV’s form curve has clearly been pointing upwards in recent games, the exact opposite was the case in erlangen. "If we manage to pick up where we left off in the last few matches and go one better, our chances are very good. It must be clear to everyone that it will not happen by itself and that we need a top performance to win this duel", according to renk.

There are still black sheep when it comes to mull separation in the habberge district

there are still black sheep when it comes to mull separation in the habberge district

Around 1100 tons of biowaste from the habfurt municipal area are processed annually at the habberge gmbh compost and soil plant in mariaburghausen. Among other things, this is what mayor gunther werner and the city councilors learned during a tour at the invitation of the company management.

The two managers, manfred eichhorn and klaus merkel, showed the committee the path of organic waste within the plant. The material is stored in special rotting boxes with ventilation and must then be allowed to ripen. "This process takes about seven weeks and does not depend on the eave temperature", eichhorn explained. After removing foreign matter with a coarse screening machine and by hand, the finished compost, which is particularly appreciated by farmers, will be offered for sale. Popular with private customers, he says, is humus compost, which is mixed with sandy material and is also available in small quantities. "Composting is the most coherent circular recycling there is", the two managing directors agree. The sampling and analysis of the finished product is carried out eight times a year by an independent institute, so that high-quality compost is always guaranteed, said merkel.

"The majority of the population separates its mull very conscientiously", eichhorn praised the burgers, but also pointed out that about five percent of the biomull was contaminated with foreign substances. From plastic to coarse stones to entire bags of residual gauze were found upon delivery to the plant. This extra effort in sorting could be avoided by more conscientious separation.

Noble seat, ruin, excursion destination

noble seat, ruin, excursion destination

"It's quite exciting when you climb up the burgberg from the parking lot at the edge of the forest in the oberwohlsbach district to the lauterburg castle. If you turn around, you not only have the panorama of the coburg region in front of you, but you can also see the staffelberg and to the east even the kordigast", finds ingrid ott, local historian of the coburg district and for many years involved in the rodental local history society.

She looked into the past of the castle ruins and stated: "you have to look back a long way to find the roots of the castle." The "castrum luterberg" was presented for the first time actually mentioned in a document from 1156. At that time, the lords of wolfeswach were the lords of the castle, who held the castrum luterberg as a fief of the counts of henneberg. They also gave their names to the villages of ober- and unterwohlsbach, today parts of the city of rodental. The castrum luterberg has had changing owners in its long history. So also the gentlemen of schaumberg. Adam von schaumberg comes from this lineage, he was first mentioned in a document in 1471 and died in 1524.

This lived at the time of the reformation on the lauterburg. Adam von schaumberg, an educated knight, both a bamberger and a saxon councillor, took issue at lauterburg with the still prevailing catholic doctrine, the pope's position of power, confession, mercenary salvation, absolution and the veneration of saints. Based on martin luther's pamphlet of 1520, he wrote "to the christian nobility of the german nation on the betterment of the christian state" a booklet for the "common people to help understand the new faith. This book was so important because it was the first theological writing by a layman for other laymen in the electoral saxonian order of coburg. The purpose is explained by the author himself: "this little book is called the leyen spiegell". In it the pious ungelerten eynfeltigen christian men are to see and learn; what ine according to the words of chrsti our dear lord; his heyligen apostell and ewanngelisten; to believe and to do is."

Art night in hammelburg

Art night in hammelburg

The former department store on the market square has already proven several times how good it is as an exhibition venue. The hammelburg group "art united uses the space probably for the last time to present works of regional artists.

The nearly 30 participants have once again set themselves a special task. They were to be inspired by three works of impressionism. "We have left it open how the theme will be implemented. Style and technique is left to the participants", says maria heckmann from "art united". The task demanded a lot of the participants’ skills, as their colleague barbara winter explains.

Three works were chosen as a source of inspiration: the "freistunde im amsterdamer waisenhaus" (free hour at the amsterdam orphanage) by max liebermann "the card players by paul cezanne and "sunhole in the mist by claude monet. The preliminary images were chosen in the group, as well as the theme. "There were several things to discuss", says winter.

Etwashausen between regional league and district league

Etwashausen between regional league and district league

Remaining in the bavarian league is the greatest success in the history of the etwashauser table tennis department. Instead of a peace-joy-egg-cake-and-further-so-feeling the team falls however in all probability apart.

Dietmar weger (ranking position 2, 12:17-balance) and peter herbst (3, 23:8) will leave the club. Weger, because he has been traded away from the club and, for example, does not feel that his performance (bavarian senior champion) has been appreciated accordingly. Herbst, on the other hand, explains in an e-mail the reason for his departure from sthashaus after two successful years: "because that’s the way it is. I will be 50 this year and must listen to my inner voice. This is for me the most important."

Alexander burkard (4), who has been linked to spvgg erlangen, a team that has been training with him for years, is now also a big question mark. For habfurter, who lives and works in the university town, this was an obvious and understandable decision.

Researchers and ecb expect stronger growth

researchers and ecb expect stronger growth

Economists believe the german economy is far from reaching the peak of its strong growth phase.

Opinions differ, however, on the extent of further increases – and also on the question of whether risks are imminent.

The german institute for economic research (DIW) assumes that citizens, companies and the state can continue to expect a significant increase in economic output in the coming years. Gross domestic product (gdp) will increase by 1.9 percent in both 2017 and 2018, and then by 1.6 percent in 2019, according to the institute in berlin. The experts thus raised their forecast for the current year by 0.4 percentage points due to the good first half of the year.

Rewind once again

Rewind once again

Rambo, the blues brothers, highlander, the knights of the coconut and the knights of fortune – the video night is secured. It’s the 80s. The GDR is still the GDR, somewhere there are always demonstrations against atomic energy, a runway or the nato double decision – and most people don’t care. The weekend does matter. This brings young people in this decade unimagined opportunities. It has become normal for 18-year-olds to have a car. Mobility is freedom, and freedom is spab. Mobility makes it possible to have a video night at your buddy’s place in new town.

A special case

Why there? There is a good pizzeria around the corner. Maybe they existed elsewhere too. But in neustadt there is the store of golandsky, and he somehow has an exemption or so. In any case, the video clique still gets a case of beer, a few chips and cigarettes at his place after 10 p.M. This is not a matter of course at that time. The ladenschlussgesetz provides namely from 18 o’clock for supply shortage. Even the lado, the long thursday with opening till 8pm, will not be introduced until october ’89. But in new town… Rambo, pizza, the blues brothers, highlander "oh god, we’re out of beer", golle fur nachschub, die ritter der kokosnuss "ha, we are out of beer again?" And again the video location neustadt: a few houses away there is seriously a beer vending machine. So, now the knights of fortune. At the end of the evening, which turned into a video night, there are a few guys lying all over the place, who can’t really remember any of the films, but think they had a great time and are sleeping at their buddy’s house, because no one is allowed to drive anymore.

Business idea of a decade

Video was THE thing of the 80s. Video stores springing up all over the place. Electronic stores offered VHS movies, gas stations jumped on the bandwagon. DVD and later blu ray tried to make a start, but demand for rental films continued to fall steadily. More and more programs on TV and later streaming made going to the video store superfluous. Today the stores have become rare. Yet 80s gems like mullers buro or drei gegen drei with the musicians of the NDW band trio in double roles are not even available on netflix or amazon.

At 3.40 o’clock the cell phone is missing the most

At 3.40 o'clock the cell phone is missing the most

The experiment initiated by tageblatt and radio eins, which was launched on monday in class 8b of the CO I secondary school, is called "a week without a cell phone". For most students, however, the title was "a week without a smartphone" correct. With a smartphone, you can do a lot more than just make phone calls – and miss a lot more too. The chat on the internet about. With sabrina lang it is different. The moderator of radio eins also gave up her cell phone for a week – and really a herkommliche cell phone.

The loss holds itself perhaps also therefore so far rather in limits. "It might be different with a smartphone," she says, she admits. On the other hand, sabrina lang was likely to hold on to some of the familiar things even when the very latest technology took hold of her. "I use, for example, a very traditional paper calendar", she says "and i have most of my appointments in my head anyway!"

Sabrina lang, however, is currently missing one task that is usually performed by her cell phone: waking up in the morning or night. "I hate traditional alarm clocks with their shrill sound", explains sabrina lang. She prefers to set a gentle melody on her cell phone – at 3.40 o’clock! Finally starts at 6 o’clock on radio one the morning show "hellwach". Sabrina lang also revealed that – normally – she likes to snooze after the first wake-up call-button prints, in other words: the cell phone gives up and answers again in ten minutes. Your current replacement alarm clock can not.
