European Championships: Emma Hinze from Cottbus takes sprint gold | Sports


Hinze confession after EM title |

Gold Emma vomited before the final run!

This woman is insane!

Third race, third victory for Emma Hinze (24) at the European Championships in Munich. After the team sprint and time trial over 500 m, the woman from Cottbus also won the sprint. In the final, the five-time world champion defeated French Mathilde Gros (23) in three runs. In the end, the finish photo has to decide, because the German was ahead by millimeters.

Hinze: “I’m through all emotions today. I didn’t expect to win. My stomach didn’t cooperate at all. I threw up, cried and thought I couldn’t do this. I couldn’t eat anything, I was throwing up so often and I knew something was wrong with my stomach.”

So also before the final run.

For Germany it was the sixth track gold at this European Championship. Except for one pursuer Nicolas Heinrich (20), only women won. And he is trained by record world champion and double Olympic champion Kristina Vogel (31).

But Hinze will not get the fourth gold on Tuesday in Keirin. Even after her sprint victory she had to vomit. “The overall stress of the last few days has taken its toll on her, so we want to protect her for health reasons,” said national coach Jan van Eijden (46).

Hinze also sees it this way: “It’s enough for me. I’ve gone over my limit very often. I want to be good at the World Cup in October, I don’t have to risk that.”

“I stuffed gels in here, but they came out again. I didn’t really have any strength,” says Hinze. Why did she still win? “I think Mathilde drew the one and thought she had won.” The one means she has to be on the track before her opponent.

However, she and her opponent had to wait a long time for their final run. The third run was postponed by 45 minutes because of a mass fall in the points race of the women’s Omnium, because the Greek Argiro Milaki (30) and Hanna Solowej (30) from Ukraine received medical treatment on the track before they came to the hospital.

Two of the other three who fell completed the competition, the Hungarian Kitti Borissza gave up injured, but was able to go off the track herself. According to initial information, she also went to the hospital with a suspected broken collarbone.

“The long break definitely didn’t harm Emma, ​​otherwise the third run might have ended differently. She just didn’t feel good today,” said van Eijden. “I thought it was really bad how long the girls lay there. But you have to push that away from yourself.”

Hinze’s body was able to recover over time. “Eating, drinking, listening to music and going to the toilet, I did all that.” And then I won.

Maximilian Dörnbach (26) had previously won bronze in the 1000 m time trial. The man from Erfurt was only beaten by Frenchman Melvin Landerneau (24/59.975 seconds) and Italian Matteo Bianchi (20/1:00.089) in a time of 1:00.225 minutes.

Hot beats aren’t enough for them: the remix artists from Stereoact (“Die immer lacht”), otherwise responsible for fat dance tracks, build themselves a sauna despite the persistent summer heat. Well, aren’t the temperatures high enough for them?

DJ Rico Lassen (44) to BILD: “I’ve always wanted to have a barrel sauna. When the opportunity arose, I hit the hardware store.” DJ buddy Sebastian Seidel (38) helped out. The sweat lodge is in the garden of Einekel’s house in Gornsdorf near Chemnitz (Saxony).

Do the musicians even have any idea about sauna construction?

Einekel: “I am a trained gas and water fitter. I already have a certain manual talent. But I honestly admit that the construction was more demanding than I thought. Despite the kit, support and instructions, it took three days. Sawing, screwing, measuring, sealing. Really a lot of work. The cordless screwdriver became my second best friend…”

Four people fit in the sauna, and who is allowed in? The artist mischievously: “I have a lovely wife, three great children. They’re already set. Of course, friends are always welcome.”

You could also use it as a recording studio, right?

Einekel thinks: “It would be possible… If I remember how we produced Kerstin Ott with ‘Die immer lacht’ seven years ago. We had discovered the song that had been on YouTube for a long time. We thought he was great. Remixed it and then contacted them. She was delighted. Of course it had to be re-sung. We then invited Kerstin to our place, spontaneously converted my living room into a studio and Kerstin banged it out. The fact that it is so successful is also thanks to our makeshift studio. Maybe we should really try the barrel sauna.”

Maximum temperature in offices and authorities: What applies to employees


For physically light and predominantly sedentary activities, public spaces should be allowed to be heated up to 19 degrees.

In the future, the federal government wants to regulate how much heat employers are allowed to heat in public buildings, depending on the activity of individual employees.

At least that is the conclusion of a draft regulation by the federal government. According to this, for example, rooms with hard, physical activities should only be heated up to 12 degrees, at least in the coming autumn and winter.

The lowering of the heating temperatures is just one of many measures for short-term energy savings in the building sector to prevent a gas emergency in Germany.

For the coming autumn and winter, the federal government is planning to break down exactly what maximum values ​​can still be heated in public buildings. For example, it can be heated up to a maximum of 12 degrees if physically demanding activities are taking place in the rooms. In other words, work such as lifting and carrying heavy loads, in which employees continuously strain the whole body when walking or standing. This emerges from a draft ordinance by the federal government dated August 12, 2022, which is intended to regulate energy-saving measures in buildings for a short period of six months during the heating period in winter 2022/2023.

Specifically, the draft states: Employers must ensure that the air temperature is not affected by technical building systems such as heating systems, heating energy or energy
Air conditioning systems or other heating devices is exceeded. According to the draft regulation, the following maximum values ​​apply to work rooms in public buildings:

  1. 19 degrees apply to physically light and mostly sedentary work such as in the office, with a quiet sitting or standing posture, occasional walking and slight movements with hands and arms
  2. For light physical activity mainly standing or walking 18 degrees,
  3. For medium-heavy and mostly sedentary work 17 degrees,
  4. For medium-heavy work, mainly standing or walking, such as manual work, 16 degrees and
  5. For physically heavy activity 12 degrees.

The maximum temperatures do not apply to clinics, hospitals, care facilities, schools and day care centers or other facilities where higher air temperatures are necessary for the health of the people present.

Overall, the federal government wants to save almost 20 terawatt hours of gas a year

The background to the planned ordinance is the current gas supply situation in view of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine. The German government fears that Russia could continue to use natural gas as a means of exerting political pressure. “The arbitrary behavior of the Russian Federation results in a high risk that deliveries (…) will be further curtailed,” says the draft. And further: The Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection had already announced the early warning level on March 30, 2022 and the alarm level on June 23, 2022 in connection with the emergency plan. Nevertheless, additional energy-saving measures to strengthen precautions are of great importance in order to avoid the occurrence of an emergency situation this winter and next.

The federal government is therefore appealing to politicians, companies and consumers in the draft regulation: “Every kilowatt hour saved, regardless of whether it is from public institutions, from citizens or from the economy, helps a little way out of dependency”.

In the future, lowering the room temperature in public spaces is just one of many measures aimed at reducing gas and electricity consumption. Normally, the minimum temperatures in work rooms in Germany are regulated in a so-called “Technical Rules for Workplaces”. Here, too, the minimum room temperature is between 12 and 20 degrees, depending on the severity. For example, the minimum temperature for heavy physical work was already 12 degrees. In break, standby, sanitary, canteen and first-aid rooms, the temperature must be at least 21 degrees during the period of use.

Overall, the federal government wants to save almost 20 terawatt hours of gas a year with the isolated reduction in room temperatures in order to reduce German gas consumption by around two percent. In addition, there should be further savings in electricity consumption of more than 10 terawatt hours.

Allegation: Violation of the obligation to isolate: Lauterbach displayed | politics


“Infected people must stay at home” – with these words, Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (59, SPD) opposed the lifting of all corona isolation requirements.

But now the Minister of Health could fall on the health minister’s own feet. According to media reports, the former member of parliament and current head of the GG union, Marcel Luthe, has filed a complaint against Lauterbach.

▶︎ The allegation: The Minister of Health would have violated the obligation to isolate himself during his corona infection!

This is about “equal treatment of citizens and the Minister of Health,” Luthe explained the step to the “Berlin newspaper”. His union represents “dozens of people who are accused of similar violations and who should be punished for it”.

Background: In the current Corona regulation applicable in Berlin It says that people who have contracted Covid-19 must have “remained without symptoms for at least 48 hours” if they want to come out of isolation BEFORE 10 days have elapsed. There are no exceptions in the regulation – not even in the case of a negative PCR test.

Instead, in addition to being symptom-free, proof of a negative corona test is also required – at the earliest from the 5th day of isolation.

Lauterbach apparently still had symptoms

Lauterbach, who tested positive for the corona virus on August 4th, ended his corona isolation on the seventh day (August 10th) – and visited the cabinet, although he apparently still showed symptoms of illness!

Because Lauterbach had only reported on his state of health the day before (August 9) on ARD: “I’m not quite fit yet. I’m negative again, the PCR test is also well over 30, so I’m no longer considered contagious.” And further: “Now it’s slowly going uphill again.”

The health minister also tweeted the same day: “Hope recovery is complete soon.” SOON – doesn’t mean now?

This is where you will find content from Twitter

In order to interact with or display content from Twitter and other social networks, we need your consent.

▶︎ The problem: Lauterbach also fulfilled the strict isolation rules of the RKI for the healthcare sector, according to which a “negative PCR result or a positive test result with a Ct value >30 is permissible” “to resume work”.

BUT: The decisive factor in Berlin are the symptoms of the corona disease. So is the politician now stumbling over the (self-initiated) corona rule chaos?

Lauterbach defends himself

The Federal Ministry of Health denies the accusation. “The minister was symptom-free for 48 hours before he visited the cabinet on Wednesday,” said the ministry when asked “World”.

▶︎ Strange about it: Lauterbach had said himself that he was “not quite fit yet”. According to Luthe, who is now complaining, this clearly refutes that Lauterbach was symptom-free for 48 hours when he left the isolation.

To the “Mirror” Lauterbach defended himself against this Monday, explaining his behavior as follows: “It is quite right to be asked whether I have broken isolation rules. Because if you do that, you endanger your fellow human beings”. However, he no longer had any symptoms, no sore throat or headaches, but was simply not fit yet.

He also defended the isolation rule: “We have to stick to the isolation rule,” said Lauterbach. “Otherwise people with symptoms will end up going to the office. Employers might even put pressure on their employees accordingly. We cannot want that.”

Controversy over self-testing

However, there is also a dispute as to whether the Minister of Health – if he no longer had any symptoms – was able to test himself freely at all. Because the minister apparently did that as a safeguard in addition to his PCR test. The Berlin regulation also stipulates that a negative SELBST test does not meet the requirements for ending the quarantine.

The ministry is convinced that the minister, as a licensed doctor, was allowed to test himself. A ministry spokesman told Welt that he had tested himself three times before the cabinet meeting with negative results.

▶︎ BUT: A Berlin health authority had informed the newspaper, which like BILD belongs to Axel Springer, by telephone on Monday that doctors would also have to go to a test center – or at least carry out the self-test under the supervision of a competent person such as another doctor – in order to then be free to be tested to apply.

Kai Wegner, parliamentary group leader of the CDU Berlin, is also critical of Lauterbach’s behavior. Wegner said “Welt”: “If even the responsible minister fails to comply with the Corona regulations, something has to change.” Rules must be comprehensible and moderate: Corona policy requires clarity and reliability. Mr. Lauterbach does not stand for this policy.”

Lauterbach’s corona disease was diagnosed for the first time on Thursday, August 4th with a positive rapid test – and according to his own statements, was accompanied by a severe cough and fever. The Minister of Health is now healthy again.

Ypres: M-Sport Ford builds on Breen / WRC experience


A trio of Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 returns to the tarmac this week as the Ypres Rally Belgium, round ninth, makes its second appearance in 2022 as part of the FIA ​​World Rally Championship (WRC).

After recovering from a difficult event in Finland, the M-Sport team is ready to tackle some of Europe’s most famous tarmac roads – with 20 special stages and a total of 282 kilometers of competition, all centered around the historic market town of Ypres.

Teams will find flat but unyielding farmland there and will need to watch out for the drainage ditches right next to the slopes. As if that wasn’t challenging enough, heat two gets all the more treacherous as conditions vary wildly between cars as dirt is kicked up and thrown onto the track.

M-Sport’s Craig Breen travels to Belgium buoyed by his second overall finish at last year’s event. This year is Breen’s sixth appearance at Ypres, including an overall win in 2019. Confident on tarmac and with comprehensive notes from previous years, the Irishman will put in a strong performance this week.

Practically the home rally of Adrien Fourmaux, whose parents’ house is only 40 km from the service park, the technical tests are familiar territory for the young Frenchman. Competing in a Fiesta WRC at the event last year, Fourmaux set impressive pace in the early stages and hopes to do the same this week. Following his debut last year, Gus Greensmith will be making his second appearance in Ypres, this time with co-driver Jonas Andersson. After making his Rally1 debut at Rally Finland last week, Jari Huttunen will be back at the wheel of his Ford Fiesta Rally2 in Ypres. The young Finn will compete again in the WRC2 category after taking class victory in his first-ever outing in Belgium last year.

Team Principal Richard Millener, Team Principal, said: “It was the shortest time between rallies of the season and I have to commend the efforts of the team who have worked tirelessly to ensure we get the cars ready on time. We were all motivated by the pace Craig, Adrien and Gus have shown at this event before. As the rally is closest to home, most of our team will be going to Ypres and I suspect many fans will be making a similar trip. It was fantastic to see the fans back on the slopes, many of whom have stood by us through good times and bad, and I look forward to seeing many of them again this week. We are confident for this rally. We know the Puma is strong on tarmac so let’s see what we can do and if we can head back to Cumbria with some silver in the boot.”

Craig Breen said: «It’s nice to come back to Ypres, it’s always a rally I like. I’ve been there a few times now and last year it went really well. We were fighting for the win the whole time and I had good speed. We also won the event in 2019 before it was included in the World Championship, so we have some good memories there. We’re looking forward to the rally, hopefully we can get a good result and show the car’s speed, it’s shown its pace on tarmac from the start so let’s see what we can do.”

Adrien Fourmaux commented: “I’m delighted to be back in Ypres and on tarmac in a truly technical rally. There are many different grip levels here and many junctions where we need to be quick and efficient. There are a lot of really fast passages that are quite narrow and have little grip at the entrance, so we have to be very focused there. It’s my next rally of the season less than an hour from my house so I’m hoping to see a lot of fans and really enjoy the moment. My goal this week is just to get some confidence back on tarmac and finish the rally in a decent position.”

Gus Greensmith said: “Ypres is a very difficult and unique rally because there is very little room for error as ditches line every single road and the roads themselves are very narrow. It’s a tricky rally to participate in, even if it seems very easy on paper. We’ve had a good car on tarmac all year, so we’re hoping to use that well and get a good result.”

Jari Httunen commented: “Finland was a very exciting event for me and a really big challenge, but it will be nice to get back into Rally2 at this event. We had a strong performance here in Belgium last year and the format will be more or less the same so we hope to build on what we know to get another good result. We’ll have to take some time to get used to the car again, but then we’ll see what happens.”

SSV Jahn Regensburg is subject to Hannover 96: Wuisler and Grantler – Sport


Let’s enter the wide field of language research, in which scholars have been bustling for centuries. For example Andreas Zaupfer, whose “Attempt at a Bavarian and Upper Palatinate Idiotikon” was published in 1789, the year of the French Revolution. The word “wuiseln” is noted here as a dialectal translation for “whining” (which in turn the social media generation expresses onomatopoeically with “Mimimi”). In domestic football, which of course did not exist in Zaupfer’s time in its current form, people like to speak of a “Wuisler goal” when the ball lurches over the line more by accident and not as a result of an action worth seeing and thus possibly also a whole game is decided.

Exactly this phenomenon happened to SSV Jahn Regensburg on Sunday, the shot by young talent Antonio Foti from Hanover, deflected into his own goal by defender Steven Breitkreuz, was the very first goal that the Upper Palatinate had to concede in this second division season – the 0-1 defeat slipped it previous table leaders down to sixth place.

And that, although Jahn was by no means the worse team, but after a complicated initial phase, when Hanover developed pressure, seemed even closer to victory than Lower Saxony for long stretches of the game. However, centre-forward Prince Osei Owusu in particular always found his master in the brilliantly held 96-goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler. So it was not surprising that coach Mersad Selimbegovic busted after the game. “The result is very bitter, it’s really difficult to accept this defeat,” said the 40-year-old coach. “Now we have seven points that not many would have believed us capable of in our opening program. But to be honest, there must be more. We are currently in a phase in which the balls are not going in.”

“It’s the second division: you’re never sure that you’ll get a point for a good performance,” says coach Selimbegovic

The fact that it was not even 0-0 in the end, as in the last derby against Nuremberg, because of all people the reliable Breitkreuz scored this own goal was the icing on the cake. “The player doesn’t hit the ball, we do the rest. It’s second division: never sure that you’ll get a point for a good performance. But don’t blame Steve,” said Selimbegovic. Jahn captain Benedikt Gimber was just as upset as the coach: “It really was an unnecessary defeat,” said the midfielder. “If we take the lead, Hannover won’t come back. But unfortunately we don’t reward ourselves.” And goalkeeper Dejan Stovanovic immediately turned his attention to the next game on Saturday against Karlsruhe, “We want to keep the zero again”.

Now one could think that the suffering of one would have triggered the great joy on the other side. But Hanover’s coach Stefan Leitl, who was born in Munich and was a guest in the Bundesliga for a year with SpVgg Greuther Fürth, was by no means euphoric after his very first league win with his new club. After the good initial phase of his eleven, they had “little access” and “made wrong decisions”. It was a very difficult game, “in which we absolutely have to go to our limit in order to survive. We didn’t make it, I have to say that very clearly,” Leitl grumbled and put all his effort on the euphoria brakes: ” We are happy that we managed to achieve this work victory – we don’t have to celebrate it.” For all amateur linguists: Leitl was really grumpy – a term that has been used in Bavaria since the 16th century.

Gas surcharge: a lot of criticism from Hamburg’s politicians and from social organizations NDR.de – News


As of: 08/15/2022 5:54 p.m

It is now clear that there will be additional costs for all gas consumers. The gas surcharge will be 2.4 cents per kilowatt hour from October. There is a lot of criticism from Hamburg’s opposition and social organizations.

For the left-wing faction in Hamburg, the gas levy further promotes the already existing social division. For people with medium or low incomes, the new levy is a shock. And the AfD speaks in this context of an energy and socio-political catastrophe.

AUDIO: Much criticism of the new gas surcharge (1 min)

Demand: relieve people with little money

And the social organizations are also dissatisfied. The association VdK criticizes the gas levy as too great a financial burden for low-income households. “A gas levy of 2.4 cents per kilowatt hour and also rising energy and food prices are driving people with little money into insolvency,” said association president Verena Bentele to the newspapers of the Funke media group. She called for “a heating quota of 10,000 kilowatt hours per household at a fair price that everyone can pay”. And the Association of North German housing companies is demanding compensation for the housing benefit, which is the simplest thing, they say.

Rising costs for industry

The consequences for industry in Hamburg are also unclear. The steel industry is preparing for large additional costs. The Steel Industry Association expects additional costs of half a billion euros across Germany.

There is good news, at least for swimmers: Baederland will not close any swimming pools because of the gas levy, the company assured NDR 90.3.

Gas levy leads to additional costs for consumers

Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) defended the gas levy. It is “the fairest possible form of distributing the additional costs incurred among the population”. Habeck emphasized: “The alternative is not, no surcharge. The alternative would have been the collapse of the German energy market and with it large parts of the European energy market.” According to him, a single household with a gas consumption of 4,000 kilowatt hours per year adds an average of 97 euros, a two-person household 194 euros and a four-person household with a consumption of 12,000 kilowatt hours 290 euros. The Federal Association of Consumers, on the other hand, assumed a model household with an annual consumption of 20,000 kilowatt hours – with an additional burden of more than 480 euros without VAT.
