Skepticism after assad’s announcement of a ceasefire

Skepticism after Assad's announcement of a ceasefire

Across the country, 23 people have been killed by the regime’s forces, including two mentally disabled brothers, it said. Tanks belonging to government forces had shelled residential neighborhoods in the rebel strongholds of Homs and Daraa.

The Syrian regime had agreed to a ceasefire on Monday nearly 13 months after protests against President Bashar al-Assad began. The so-called revolutionary committees then declared that they had decided, together with the Free Syrian Army, that the deserters would also lay down their arms if the regime actually stopped its attacks and ordered the troops back to the barracks. They also demanded that political prisoners be released. Journalists should be allowed to move freely.

The United Nations planned to send some 150 to 200 observers to Syria to monitor the cease-fire, a Western diplomat in Baghdad said. According to UN figures, more than 9,000 people have died in the conflict so far.

Stegaurach’s home aura broken

Stegaurach's home aura broken

In extremely sultry temperatures, SpVgg Stegaurach and FC Sand offered the 300 or so visitors a very respectable and exciting Landesliga match right to the end. The newcomer from the Aurachtal acted until shortly before the end on eye level, but missed a positive result due to lack of opportunities and had to accept a 2:4 home defeat.

The ambitious ex-Bayernliga team from Sand pushed the tempo right from the start and showed a pleasing passing game with many technical refinements. But the first big chance came from the home side, Eichhorn’s shot went over the goal (7). Minute). After that, the guests showed their dangerousness for the first time. Consequently, the opening goal for Sand was scored by Krines (16.). But the joy lasted only five minutes. The Stegaurach player-coach Eichhorn was clever on the left, and his cross Kraus bugs to the equalizer in the meshes (21.). After that, the match was relatively even. The visitors regained the lead shortly before the break. After a class move, the lively Ribeiro scored to make the score 1:2 at half time.

After the change of ends, the Stegaurach team brought in two fresh players, Scharfenberg and Makrigiannis. Bad luck had the home side, because regular keeper Czepluch had to go out with shoulder problems, he was replaced by junior Neblicht (47.). Three minutes later, the home team could equalize again: B. Oberst scored already his fourth free kick goal in the still young season from about 35 meters with generous help from TW Biemer.

“The man of la mancha” convinced in bamberg

What do an idealistic author and a mad knight have in common?? They are both the Man of La Mancha. The musical adaptation of the Don Quixote story by Dale Wasserman, Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion celebrated its premiere in the E.T.A.-Hoffmann Theater a Bamberg premiere that, although not sold out, was certainly much applauded.

The plot of the musical, which premiered in New York in 1965 as "Man of la Mancha," is quickly told: The poet Miguel de Cervantes is thrown into prison, targeted by the Inquisition. His fellow prisoners, however, are hardly less friendly to him; in the dungeon they put him before a tribunal. Cervantes’ plan: In his defense, he wants to play them his farce about Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. This is how a play within a play develops, in which scene after scene rushes across the stage.

The secret star of the Bamberg musical production is anyway the stage itself (set: Karin Fritz): steeply sloping side walls border the oppressive dungeon space, creating an even-like effect, the prisoners fall, as it were, over a train staircase into a funnel; the Inquisition is always hovering over them, sometimes opening the gates to the outside world, only to banish the light from the prison again, demonstrating its power.

Stroboscope and SS uniform

A stroboscope sends flashes of light across the stage, the seemingly heavy ceiling beams descend impressively towards the prison inmates, threatening to crush Don Quixote in his delusions. Why, however, the prison captain appears in SS-like uniform and why the prisoners with their blue and white striped suits remind one quite obtrusively of concentration camp inmates, is not clear, since it contributes nothing to the interpretation of the play.

Massacre in texas: were warning signs disregarded and serious mistakes made?

Barely three days after the massacre at a Texas church, reports of lapses before the crime and possible early warning signs are causing a stir. According to consistent media reports, the shooter Devin Patrick Kelley had escaped from a psychiatric facility in the state of New Mexico in June 2012. Two policemen would have picked him up at a bus stop in the Texas city of El Paso.

It was initially unclear how long Kelley had been in the psychiatric facility. He was stationed in New Mexico with the Air Force, which has come under pressure in the investigation following the crime at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs that left 26 dead and 20 injured. The issue is how the perpetrator was able to buy weapons even though he had a criminal record for domestic violence.

Assassin should never have had weapons

The Air Force acknowledged that the man’s criminal record had not been shared with an FBI database. The military had opened an investigation. Because of the conviction, Kelley shouldn’t have been allowed to buy guns in the first place. But he acquired a semiautomatic rifle and two handguns. He used the gun to commit the crime.

If too much is demanded of the dairy cows?

If too much is demanded of the dairy cows?

No milk without a child. This is no different for livestock and is especially interesting in dairy farming. Do the cows now have to give birth to a calf every year, which is then separated from its mother in order to produce more and more milk??

"The calves have always been separated from their mothers, otherwise it would be mother cow husbandry", explains Werner Nutzel, Managing Director of the Forchheim Farmers’ Association. The suckler cow husbandry, however, serves the meat production.

In modern dairy farms in the district of Forchheim there are the so-called calving areas, where all pregnant cows have their offspring. In the first few hours or on the first day, the calf is very much with its mother, from whom it receives the beestings and who also licks her calf, explains Nutzel. Then the calf must go out, already because of the injury danger. He admits that the cow will continue to call for her calf for some time. The calf’s diet is based on "milk replacer" converted, comparable to baby food.
