Bus travel is cheaper in Bremerhaven: politicians subsidize the monthly ticket

0


The subsidy for local public transport is part of the 10 million euro climate protection package that the Bremerhaven coalition of SPD, CDU and FDP decided last October.

Take adults and children with you on weekends

The difference to the nationwide 49-euro ticket, which will be available on May 1st, is that the offer is only valid for bus services in Bremerhaven – with one exception. As before with the Mia-plus ticket, two adults and four children under the age of 15 can use all local transport connections in the VBN area with the 30.90 euro ticket at weekends and on public holidays. It should also be an excursion ticket for the family – to go to Bremen, for example. Delmenhorst and Oldenburg as well as the districts of Ammerland, Diepholz, Oldenburg, Osterholz, Verden and Wesermarsch also belong to the VBN-Land. And the new ticket remains transferrable: it can be used by family members or friends.

Commuters do not benefit from the new offer

However, commuters who have to go to Bremen or the district on weekdays, for example, do not benefit from the offer. You have to wait for the 49 euro ticket.

Deadline Day: Bayern hammer, BVB surprise, Isco drama – FOOTBALL INTERNATIONAL

0

Deadline Day, the last day of the transfer window, has once again provided plenty of surprises – and of course drama that will go down in history forever.

SPORT BILD gives an overview of what happened.

Marcel Sabitzer from Bayern to ManUnited

The midfielder will lose to the English heavyweights. After the injury of Christian Eriksen, who was badly injured by cult footballer Andy Carroll in the cup, United had to act quickly.

Since Sabitzer was dissatisfied with his playing time, an obvious change. The Bavarians are giving it away by the end of the season – without an option to buy it! The loan was announced at 1:10 a.m.

BVB surprise

As in every transfer period, BVB wants to get rid of its legacy. Thorgan Hazard has succeeded for the time being. The attacking player is loaned out to PSV Eindhoven.

However, the Dutch have no purchase option on loan, surprisingly! The rental fee should be around 500,000 euros.

Another one will continue to warm the Borussia bench: Nico Schulz. The left-back has been associated with a number of clubs for umpteen periods of change. And whenever the transfer is very, very close, it bursts. So also this time.

Adviser Roger Wittmann explained to BILD TV that saying goodbye was the best solution from the player’s point of view. Schulz was also in final talks with the Italian club Atalanta Bergamo. In the end he stayed – also because there was no offer from the Italians.

Those responsible for the club will certainly not be happy about that. Schulz, who was brought from Hoffenheim for 22.5 million in 2019, collects around 6 million a year. A proud sum for a bench warmer.

Isco drama

The Isco saga will go down in history forever. The five-time Champions League winner should and wanted to switch to Union Berlin.

The Spaniard has even been to the capital to complete his medical check-up. Everyone thought the hammer change would be made official soon.

Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that!

The Isco change burst! Why, there are umpteen variants. From the Isco environment it is said that Union wanted to reduce the previously agreed salary sums. And Isco should not be registered for the Europa League because the places were already gone. Union legend Mattuschka, on the other hand, explains that the Isco side relied on net totals, Union on gross totals.

Jorginho changes and stays at home

League leaders Arsenal continue to strengthen!

The Gunners surprisingly took midfielder Jorginho from city rivals Chelsea, who was no longer able to play under coach Graham Potter.

Arsenal transfers the equivalent of almost 12 million plus bonus payments to the city rivals. Good for the Italian. He can stay at home and play football again.

What else has happened?

  • Former HSV goalkeeper Julian Pollersbeck is loaned from Lyon to FC Lorient.
  • Hertha wants but can’t get any players. Only Tolga Cigerci comes back. The ex-Herthan costs 350,000 euros in transfer fee.
  • Tottenham lends Djed Spence to Rennes. In the summer it still cost a whopping 14.7 million euros.
  • Bayer takes Colombia talent Gustavo Puerta for 1 million from FC Bogota and hands him over directly to 1. FC Nürnberg.
  • Bayern breaks loan with talent Lenn Jastremski (Aue) and loaned him to Grazer AK. But the loan with Joao Cancelo becomes official.
  • AS Roma sign Diego Llorente from Leeds United. Initially on loan, from the summer there is a purchase option for 18 million euros.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt takes ex-Augsburg Philipp Max on loan.

Sky: Commentator Frank Buschmann puts an end to football Sports

0

It’s enough for him.

Cult commentator Frank Buschmann (58) – better known as “Buschi” will no longer be heard on TV at football games from the coming season. Because Buschmann will stop commenting on football after the current Bundesliga season.

Isco change burst! This beauty is not in the Bundesliga!

In an interview with “sportjournalist.de” Buschmann explains the reasons for his departure from football.

“I now find the trappings difficult to unbearable. The moment I’m at the microphone in the Sky conference, I love my job. But outside of the 90 minutes, I got sick of the people in the shop who claim they’re doing it all out of pure love for the sport and for the fans. That’s a lie.”

Riddles about buyer and amount Cristiano Ronaldo gets rid of 20 million jet

He announced his retirement for the first time in the summer, saying at the time: “The way sport is presented and broadcast these days is not really my world anyway.”

This time Buschmann goes even further, says: “Reporters on streaming services or on TV are often incredibly soft-washed because they don’t want to hurt anyone. There is an incredible fear of what the DFL, the club, the coach or the players think. But that’s not why you’re a reporter. This effort not to step on anyone’s toes kills all passion.

Exactly the same applies when someone comments, as at a coaching seminar: prospective Bundesliga coaches like that because I accommodate all of their specialist terminology, but my comments ignore the majority of viewers.”

Bushman plain text!

Buschmann has been a sports commentator for many years. Currently for the pay TV channel Sky.

He worked for Sport 1, Arena, Liga total and ProSiebenSat.1, among others. Guided through basketball, football and NFL games. Since 2017 he has also worked for RTL as a moderator.

In addition, Buschmann is a well-known voice as a co-commentator on the popular e-sports series “Fifa” alongside Wolff-Christoph Fuss (46). But even then he stops…

Habeck speaks out against fighter jets for Ukraine – politics

Yes to tanks, no to planes: Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck describes Western support for Ukraine as a “balancing act”. It is “not entirely clear where the line runs.”

Conflicts – Survival in the shelter of the jungles of Myanmar – Politics

0

Naypyidaw/Bangkok (dpa) – Khin Khin was leading a happy life near the city of Hpa-an in southeastern Myanmar when everything suddenly changed two years ago. Until then, the region with its numerous caves and pagodas also attracted tourists from all over the world. The 44-year-old worked as a nurse. Married, mother of three children. Her husband was a member of the National League for Democracy (NLD), the party of then Prime Minister Aung San Suu Kyi. When the military putsch and the soldiers came, the family was not at home. This was her salvation.

Today, Khin Khin lives as an internally displaced person in the jungle of Karen State on the border with Thailand. “I can’t go home until Min Aung Hlaing is dead,” she says. This refers to the general who is considered to be the mastermind of the coup on February 1, 2021 – and who has a powerful ally in Russia.

Since that fateful day, the former Burma, just on the road to democratic reform, has relentlessly slipped back into the days of previous military dictatorships. Suu Kyi was arrested and has since been sentenced to a total of more than 30 years in prison. The country has become synonymous with bloody oppression, chaos and despair. Any resistance is brutally suppressed. The junta does not shy away from indiscriminately killing civilians in airstrikes or torturing opposition members to death.

Other crises draw attention

According to the latest estimates by the non-governmental think tank “Institute for Strategy and Policy – Myanmar” (ISP), two million people have fled attacks and arrests by the army since the coup – and are now living in their own country as displaced persons. They come from big cities like Yangon and Mandalay as well as from small villages. They often fought their way through the jungle for days.

The world is currently looking at other places of horror, above all the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, or the civil war in Syria. That’s why the horror of Myanmar hardly ever makes headlines. But for most of the Southeast Asian country’s 54 million people, which borders Thailand, Laos, India, Bangladesh and China, constant military abuses are a grim reality.

The Singaporean newspaper Straits Times recently stated: “From Ukraine to Syria and Myanmar, we live in a world of refugees.” There have not been so many displaced persons since 1945. “Being a refugee – torn from home, friends, possessions, culture – is always a horrific predicament,” the paper said. This is what Maung Win, a Yangon policeman who has joined the resistance, found out.

Living conditions in camps are bad

He’s clearing parts of the forest to build bombproof shelters. They are supposed to protect the refugees from the junta’s airstrikes. Just like Khin Khin, he currently resides in an area controlled by the powerful “Karen National Union” (KNU). The KNU is the oldest armed group in the multi-ethnic state of Myanmar. She has been fighting for freedom for more than 70 years and has offered protection to many internally displaced persons since the coup.

“I will never regret having chosen this path, I am proud of it,” said Maung Win (27) of the German Press Agency. “I was ordered to join the military, but I refused and joined the resistance.” As he tells how he had to leave family and friends behind, he sighs deeply.

Most of the camp live in small huts or tents. There is no clean drinking water. Many suffer from diseases such as diarrhea. Medicines are scarce, getting supplies is dangerous. In order to build new settlements, parts of the forest are burned down. Waste is thrown into the flames because people don’t know where else to dispose of it. The smell is acrid. But the worst is the uncertainty. Will they ever be able to return home?

Many displaced persons are children

In neighboring Karenni State (also known as Kayah State), many have also fled to the forests. Nang Phaw was pregnant when junta forces used heavy weapons to attack her village in early 2022. “I was scared to death, I thought one of the rockets would fall right on my head,” says the 28-year-old. She just ran out into the darkness, aimless, aimless, in panic. Since then she has been a refugee – for the first time in her life.

According to surveys by the Karenni Human Rights Group, 20 percent of those displaced are children under the age of eight. Most suffer from malnutrition. According to human rights activists, aid deliveries from the United Nations, among others, are repeatedly blocked by the junta. A number that gives food for thought: 200,000 of the almost 300,000 inhabitants in Karenni state are now living as internally displaced persons.

Again and again there are reports of massacres of the civilian population. One of the worst became known at the end of 2021. The charred bodies of more than 30 people, including children and two Save the Children employees, were found in burned vehicles in Karenni State. “The military reportedly forced people out of their cars, arrested some, killed others and burned their bodies,” the children’s charity said at the time, condemning the attack as a violation of international humanitarian law.

Terror by the military: villages are set on fire

The strategy of the military also includes destroying as many houses as possible. It is estimated that there are already tens of thousands. “The military wants to scare people,” says Ko Tun, who helps displaced people. If there was even a suspicion that a member of the resistance was hiding somewhere, the entire settlement would often be burned down. “The soldiers find it useful to burn villages, so they do it regularly.”

Refugees worry most about the future of their children. Because on the global stage, Myanmar is rarely high on the agenda. “I have to accept my current situation because I want them to be able to live freely one day,” says Min Min from Yangon. The 40-year-old father of a son and daughter has also fled to the jungle on the border with Thailand. “I don’t really care what becomes of me, but I still have hope for my children and that all the sacrifices we are making will pay off so that one day we can go home.”

Sport-Club Freiburg II – SpVgg Oberfranken Bayreuth (Friday, 7 p.m.)

0

Bayreuth is facing a difficult task with the reserve of the Sport-Club. Freiburg II recently had to settle for a 0-0 draw against FC Erzgebirge Aue. Bayreuth beat FC Ingolstadt 04 1-0 last week. Thus, SpVgg Oberfranken Bayreuth occupies 19th place in the table with 16 points. The first leg was not a clear affair. The Sport-Club Freiburg II narrowly won 1-0.

In view of the good home statistics (6-3-1), the hosts should be confident. After 19 rounds played, Thomas Stamm’s team has already scored 35 points and brought the team an excellent fourth place. The performance of the Sport-Club so far: ten wins, five points shared and four failures.

SpVgg Oberfranken Bayreuth still has room for improvement on the opponent’s place, which underlines the balance of only five points. The back team of the guest is so far on shaky legs. Thomas Kleine’s team have already conceded 34 goals in the course of the season so far. After 19 matches, Bayreuth has four wins, four draws and eleven defeats.

SpVgg Oberfranken Bayreuth did not act disembodied this season, as a look at the card statistics (44-2-1) confirms. Will Freiburg II be impressed by this?

Bayreuth clearly goes into the game as an outsider. In the course of the season, SpVgg Oberfranken Bayreuth scored 19 points less than Sport-Club Freiburg II.

Locals have to switch to business apartments

0

1/11

In this superstructure in Zurich-Wollishofen there are several business apartments from the company Blueground.

The housing shortage spreads from Zurich to all of Switzerland. And meanwhile it’s sprouting strange flowers. Because it is almost impossible to find a new place to live within a reasonable period of time, Swiss apartment seekers are increasingly turning to so-called business apartments.

These are the furnished alternative to rented apartments. So far, the offer has primarily been used by employees of international companies who have to be accommodated in one city for several weeks or months.

«For Swiss customers, we are an interim solution while they are looking for an apartment or house»Jakub Kasperczyk (30), CEO of Blueground.

Temporary solution for the wealthy

Recently, however, locals have also become increasingly interested in the furnished accommodations – and not for business reasons. “We also have an increasing number of Swiss customers here in Zurich,” says Jakub Kasperczyk (30), CEO of Blueground. The company is a provider of such business apartments.

The reason is this parched housing market. “For Swiss customers, we are an interim solution while they are looking for an apartment or house,” says Kasperczyk. “These are quite wealthy customers who, despite being willing to pay a lot, cannot find a suitable apartment quickly enough in Zurich,” says Kasperczyk.

Fewer apartments advertised

Locals with an average housing cost budget are also increasingly making use of the offer. One of them is Matthias B. To protect his privacy, Blick has changed his name. B. lives and works in Zurich. When his relationship broke up last year, he wanted to move out of the shared apartment. However, he did not find a new, affordable apartment fast enough. “In the beginning, I stayed with friends,” he says. “Then I lived in a business apartment for a while.”

He paid 2,500 francs a month for the furnished, 21 square meter apartment. A lot of money that the providers of such furnished accommodation are now making with the housing shortage. “It was an expensive interim solution, and I’m glad that I’ve found an affordable rental apartment in the meantime,” says Matthias B.

Alec Baldwin: Actor charged after fatal shooting on film set entertainment

0

In October 2021, tragedy struck on the set of the western film “Rust”: Alec Baldwin (64) accidentally shot camerawoman Halyna Hutchins († 42) with a prop gun. Prosecutors in the US state of New Mexico have now filed charges against the actor.

The agency officially filed the lawsuit in the Santa Fe court on Tuesday (local time), after announcing the move in January. “In New Mexico, no one is above the law and justice is done,” said Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies.

Armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed is also facing charges. She and Baldwin are charged with involuntary manslaughter. In the case of a guilty verdict with aggravating circumstances, there is a risk of up to five years in prison.

The actor and the armorer maintain their innocence. Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, declined to comment Tuesday, citing his earlier statement on the case in which he described the charges as a “horrific miscarriage of justice” that he and his client will be prosecuting.

“Mr Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the film set,” the statement said. “He relied on the professionals he worked with.” Gutierrez-Reed’s attorney said he would make a statement at a later date.

Prosecutor Carmack-Altwies said in an interview with the AP news agency in January that Baldwin should have known that there had been misfires on the set before and that several people had expressed safety concerns.

Flashback: Camerawoman Hutchins was on October 21, 2021 fatally injured while filming at a Santa Fe movie ranch. Director Joel Souza (49) was hit in the shoulder by the projectile and injured. Baldwin was the lead actor and producer of the western Rust. He was operating the gun during rehearsal for a scene when a shot was fired. Investigations revealed that the Colt had a real bullet lodged in it.
