The protection of the open plains is one of the most important climate protection measures to which the bund naturschutz (BN) has committed itself. He made the importance of the topic clear with an action on the market place.

It is necessary to preserve our soils, because they store CO2 and large quantities of water. We could still advertise soft tourism with good conscience at the tourism fairs with several picture book landscapes. BN district chairman anton reinhardt enthused about his homeland: "our region is already. Here we have in many parts still harmoniously embedded in the area villages with small-structured cultural landscape in their surroundings: wayside crosses, wayside shrines, scattered orchards, forests, fields, meadows, hedges and cultural monuments of european rank. Here we still have arable land and forests that store CO2. But franconia is in danger! Our francophone landscape deserves better than more and more uniform concrete blocks at the entrance to towns and faceless settlements on the outskirts." read more

This time, the case before the district court was not about the sexual offenses committed by syrian and iraqi refugees on that friday in september 2017, but about the acts of violence committed by xenophobic germans at the kerwa the next day. Time came to the aid of the 23-year-old defendant from the bamberg district. He was acquitted.

There is a shaky amateur video taken by a kerwa visitor with his smartphone. The picture shows a man throwing a mabkrug at a young syrian man. The bullet hits its target. It takes seconds, and the now 20-year-old syrian lies unconscious on the ground. It’s not the first fab to be hurled at his head that evening. A bottle and a glass have already left bloody marks. read more

Cross-vaccination stronger than twice-vaccination with astrazeneca

Combining vaccination with astrazeneca and biontech/pfizer products is more effective than vaccination with astrazeneca alone, study finds.

Scientists from the technical university of munich, the helmholtz zentrum munich, the university hospital erlangen and the university hospital koln investigated the immune response in a retrospective study published in the journal "the lancet infectious diseases.

According to the researchers, the blood of around 500 volunteers who had received a second vaccination with biontech/pfizer’s mrna vaccine eight to twelve weeks after their first vaccination with astrazeneca’s vaccine was analyzed. "The neutralizing anti-body response was much more pronounced in these subjects than in people who received astrazeneca’s vaccine twice," erlangen university hospital explained. The immune response to the combination vaccine was at least as good as the anti-body response following two vaccinations with biontech. read more

Climate crisis hits poor people hardest

It is noisy on multi-lane roads, in air corridors and along railroad lines. The air there is not the best either. The people most affected by noise and exhaust fumes are the residents – according to studies, in areas with multiple pollution, it is mainly people with low incomes.

They are therefore more affected, explains christiane bunge of the federal environment agency. Environmental experts would therefore like to see a stronger public focus on the links between environmental quality, health and social factors. But when people talk about climate protection and justice, it’s usually all about money. read more

After last year’s municipal elections, some parts of the kitzingen city council have changed. The multiplied gruns bring a new dynamic to the committee, as does the secret dual leadership of the SPD, the couple paul. The CSU, which was still the driving force behind the former mayor muller, is having a hard time keeping up with the pace. Strikingly inconspicuous are just the -FBW, not to mention the small and one-man groups. This was evident in the current budget debates.

Basically, two basic attitudes were discernible: the SPD and the greens covered the board with a fireworks display of ideas, mostly flanked by the odp. The goal: not only to clear the reform and project backlog of the past, but also to advance future issues such as climate, inner city development, and local public transport with concrete proposals. And that immediately. This step on the gas pedal is understandable, since it’s mainly new people who have little patience, but also little experience with everyday local politics. read more
