City of wolfsburg: 'close exchange' with volkswagen

Unlike some members of the city council, the Wolfsburg city council considers communication with the largest local employer to be good. "There is a close exchange between Volkswagen and the city of Wolfsburg on topics relevant to urban development – also involving the council," it said in a statement.

Sabrina Dunschede from the city press office refers, on the one hand, to the annual Advent talks and to the participation of VW board members at the receptions for the city birthdays. "In the so-called VW city talks, Volkswagen, the city administration and council members equally regularly discuss important developments," she writes further. In 2018, he said, one meeting had already taken place in June, and the second meeting had been scheduled for this year.

Another special expression of Volkswagen's sense of responsibility for its Group capital is the joint subsidiary Wolfsburg AG, which promotes the further development of the Wolfsburg site, he said. "There is also a regular exchange between politicians and Volkswagen representatives on the supervisory board," Dunschede said.

Prosieben shocks with documentary about the far-right scene
  • ProSieben showed on Monday evening, 28. September, at 20.3 p.m. the documentary "Right. German. Radical."
  • Reporter Thilo Mischke had spent 18 months researching the right-wing scene for this report
  • The documentary features a former right-wing scene YouTuber who is now in a dropout program
  • A covert conversation between the YouTuber and an alleged AfD official caused a tangible scandal
  • He talks about "gassing" migrants. He says the worse Germany is doing, the better it is for the AfD
  • The former fD spokesman Christian Luth was terminated by the faction leadership even before the broadcast

Which AfD official wants to shoot or gas "all migrants"? This is the question viewers will be asking themselves when they watch the new ProSieben special "Right. German. Radical." have seen, which the station on Monday evening at 20.15 o'clock has aired.

Reporter Thilo Mischke Has gone into the right-wing scene for 18 months for the TV documentary. He is not undercover, but with an open visor on the road. Therefore, with some exceptions, his revelations are not forbidden keyhole views. These are impressions of, among other things, right-wing rock concerts in Thuringia and Pegida gatherings in Dresden. The explosive nature of the report arises from how openly the reporter's interlocutors identify with right-wing extremist ideas on camera.

For example Michael Bruck (30), North Rhine-Westphalia state chairman of the party "Die Rechte," which is classified by the Verfangsschutz as hostile to democracy, who very clearly reveals his extreme right-wing views. Or Sanny Kujath (18), the youthful face of the right-wing youth group "Junge Revolution". He baits new blood for the far-right scene, calls himself a "nationalist" and doesn't want to talk about World War II. He wants a different, right-wing Germany and relies on the fact that all right-wing groups network themselves.

The district of Gutersloh had been looking for the Corona outbreak in the large-scale slaughterhouse Toennies to the new Hotspot developed. Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) had 23. June ordered a regional lockdown for the districts of Gutersloh and Warendorf.

Originally, the restrictions were only supposed to last until 1. July last, now Laschet has the lockdown for the circle Gutersloh extended – for the time being until 7. July. The reason for this is that, according to the Robert Koch Institute, the district remains the only district in all of Germany above the critical mark of 50 new infections per 100.000 inhabitants is – within the past seven days.

The people in the district Warendorf can breathe a sigh of relief. Here, the restrictions are to take effect as planned at 0 o'clock on 1. July expire, as Laschet announced in Dusseldorf on Monday. Here the important indicator for the pandemic fight was already on Friday with 47.9 new infections per 100 cases.000 inhabitants in the past seven days fell below the mark of 50. According to data from Monday, the value is currently 22.0 cases.

Braunschweig becomes test city for smart cars

What you see in the photo is not a funny computer game for nerds, but quite serious research. In the simulator, traffic experts from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) test automated driving – that is, driving with a car that takes over partial or complete control: It does an emergency stop when a child runs into the road. It drives slowly at the traffic lights because it knows they are about to turn red. It changes lanes because there's about to be a construction site and everyone has to merge in.

Scientists at DLR have been working on intelligent cars and traffic networking for a long time. Now this research is getting another powerful boost. The Federal Ministry of Transport has selected six cities in which automated driving will be tested: Braunschweig, Hamburg, Munich, Ingolstadt, Dusseldorf and Dresden. 80 million euros have been earmarked for this by 2020.

Fewer accidents and traffic jams, less dirt and noise

The goal: to make traffic safer – after all, there are around 3,500 accident fatalities nationwide every year. In addition, traffic should flow better – with fewer emissions of soot, particulate matter, carbon dioxide and noise.

Uwe meier on the castle: 'commerce is not everything'

Ten years of Schloss-Arkaden – have the opponents of that time made their peace with it in the meantime? No, says Dr. Uwe Meier, one of the spokesmen of the castle opponents. The agricultural scientist has been working with plants for 52 years, including 33 years at the Julius Kuhn Institute. Focal points were u.a. Plant protection, public/urban green, agricultural ethics. Uwe Meier is a founding member of "Fair in Braunschweig," worked for many years as a volunteer for the U.S. organization Rainforest Alliance. We spoke with him.

Ten years ago they were among the opponents of the Schloss-Arkaden, five years ago also. Has something changed today?

I note that the castle of this city is well received, especially the castle arcades. Yes, a new focal point has been formed in the city.

The Internet hangs, is slow or fails altogether – this is the dreary everyday reality in many German households. Every second person in this country would therefore like to see a guaranteed Minimum surfing speed wish.

This is the result of a representative survey conducted by Innofact AG on behalf of the comparison portal Verivox, that our editorial team has received. According to the survey, one in four respondents experiences recurring Internet outages. 40 percent report that the Internet is slower than posted at least some of the time.

Internet: Clear majority sees new government in charge

Knapp 90 percent are of the opinion, according to the survey, that the new German government must take further measures to provide citizens with better Internet access. 39 percent of respondents were in favor of a Provider change The government must make it possible to solve problems even during ongoing contracts.

Plywood boards outside the windows of dozens of retail stores and banks in downtown U.S. cities, including Washington, are a week away from the Presidential election the wooden proof that something is different than usual.

Instead of unreservedly looking forward to democracy's highest holiday, in the USA the concern of violent riots and unrest around. Especially when the election night on 3. November in duel Donald Trump against Joe Biden no clear winner should emerge.

In the authorities' sights are primarily right-wing extremist, neo-Nazi and racist militias, who cause an uproar as recently in Michigan. In the co-election-deciding state that President Donald Trump visited Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation recently arrested 13 white right-wing extremists associated with the "Wolverine Watchmen".

The end of hungary: between melancholy and a sea of tears

One of the most beautiful places to Soccer watching in Budapest lies in the middle of the V. District almost directly on the Danube. The restaurant-bar Kiosk attracts an international crowd with its open terrace, big screen and 500 seats. This was already the hotspot at the games of the Hungarian national team at the 2016 European Championships. When the Magyars then reached the round of 16 in a group with Portugal, Iceland and Austria, people celebrated here until dawn. If the same coup had been achieved five years later in a group with Portugal, France and Germany, there would have been no stopping until three or four in the morning. But after the tragic elimination, a touch of melancholy lay over the area with panoramic view.

Those who didn't take a last drink elsewhere with the fans from Portugal and France streaming out of the Puskas Arena into the city could feel the disappointment here after midnight. But the sea of tears poured out on the night of the European Championship farewell not in the trendy hangouts in Budapest, but in the rainy arena in Munich. Here captain Adam Szalai and colleagues cried sometimes bitterly. By the time it dawned on them that they were leaving with their heads held high after three bravura performances and had rekindled their enthusiasm for soccer at home, they were all in a good mood. Basically, only a few minutes were missing to draw against Portugal and win against Germany.

Now against England in World Cup qualifying

That, of all things, goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi ("it's hard to find words"), who had been impeccable up to that point, fluffed; that Szalai's flying header (11.) and the counterattack goal by Andras Schafer (68.) was not enough, had almost tragic features for the brave outsider. When news of the two Hungarian goals in the parallel match between Portugal and France (2:2) spread like wildfire, a canon of cheers erupted. But in the end, coach Marco Rossi had to play the comforter in the distance. "Unfortunately, even the most beautiful stories come to an end at some point," said the Italian, who the day after from the training center in the Budapest suburb of Telki, looking ahead to the World Cup qualifiers, which begin on 2. September against England continues. The next top-class goal for his brave ensemble, which without the injured director Dominik Szoboszlai and without deafening fan support was very close to the sensation, which for older generations would have had the touch of a small World Cup revenge of 1954.

Refugees in belarus: how the eu can stop lukashenko?

Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko is allowing more and more Refugees fly in from the Middle East to Minsk. These pay up to 10.000 dollars for airfare, hotel accommodations and transportation to the border with Poland, Lithuania or Latvia. What options does the EU have to stop this state-directed Migration tourism to stop? An overview:

Belarus: can light economic sanctions be enough?

Currently, EU diplomats are negotiating punitive measures against Belarusian state-owned Belavia airline, which operates direct flights from the Middle East to Minsk. Brussels wants to ban EU-based airlines from lending aircraft to Belavia or otherwise supporting it. Next Monday, EU foreign ministers to decide on leasing ban. In addition, the EU is considering sanctioning travel agencies and airlines from some 30 third countries – including Turkey and Russia – should they engage in people smuggling.

But if Belarusian Belavia can't borrow planes from lines based in EU countries, it will look outside the community. Lukashenko is not really affected by this. Punitive measures against airlines and travel agencies in third countries are also problematic. The flights from Istanbul, Damascus or Yerevan to Minsk carry not only migrants, but also businessmen, diplomats or tourists. Who should precisely control where People smuggling and where a regular trip takes place?

Ten years of nsu murders - peiner family knew the trio

The "kebab murders" were hardly a stir with investigators and large segments of the population. Ten years ago, this suddenly became the murder series of the right-wing extremists of the NSU ("National Socialist Underground"). Bernd Hauck from Broistedt is still moved by it today. He fears that our society continues to address the ie far too little.

Bernd Hauck wrote the book "A fateful vacation acquaintance" (Telegonos). This involves two Peiner families who knew the NSU murder trio: Several times they were neighbors on the campsite on Fehmarn. Clueless, but on 4.11.In 2011, there was also a very nasty surprise for these Peiners.

When the "kebab murders" became a series of murders by right-wing extremists

It was the day when the two main perpetrators were, Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Bohnhardt, after a bank robbery into a situation which was obviously hopeless from their point of view. Surrounded by the police they killed themselves – according to previous findings – in their caravan. Her accomplice Beate Zschape, who has since been convicted, set fire to the apartment they shared in Zwickau – and then sent prepared for the first time Confession letter and a video. It was thus clear that the NSU was responsible for the series of murders of fellow citizens who were predominantly of Turkish origin. Previously, investigators thought for a long time that these were crimes within a scene with an immigrant background.
