Bmw double success at dtm opener - glock retires

Defending champion BMW only began to lurch after its double success at the DTM opener in hockenheim. Like the strong strategy, however, this was also planned: brazilian augusto farfus slid across the asphalt in his green car and cheered over the radio.

And because dirk werner had raced from 20th on the grid to second place on sunday, BMW motorsport boss jens marquardt’s joy knew no bounds: "it’s amazing!! From the very front and the very back to first and second place, that’s the ultimate," he said on ARD. "Five bmws in the top ten – that’s a great result."

The balance sheet of the car manufacturer from munich was somewhat clouded by the absence of newcomer timo glock. The former formula 1 driver lost the right rear wheel after his second pit stop in the german touring car masters. "That’s a rookie mistake and should only happen once," said marquardt.

1. Fc nurnberg goes into the winter break without a win

Womoglich already on sunday the club wants to decide about the remaining of coach jens keller, who was not on the bench for the hinrundeabschluss: the 43-year-old had to stay in the hotel room because of a hard-naked stomach flu and was represented by assistant peter herrmann.

The game in nurnberg was seen as the fateful match for keller, who had long been the subject of criticism. But without the ailing kevin-prince boateng, keller’s proteges lack verve, penetrating power and commitment for a long time. In the fight for their first win of the season, the FCN really struggled against the guests, but missed numerous chances and the victory.

Already the first quarter of an hour belonged alone to the nurnbergers. The strong hiroshi kiyotake was convincing as a playmaker, but not as an enforcer. After three minutes, the japanese failed to clear schalke’s goalkeeper ralf fahrmann, and shortly afterwards, kiyotake dribbled from the right corner of the penalty area and shot just wide of the goal (23).). Daniel ginczek (10.) awarded immediately in the initial phase.

On 7. September 1945 the association was founded in munich, shortly after the end of the second world war. In view of the trummerfeld, the food of the population should be ensured. This is what the preamble says. 22 farmers from all over bavaria founded the association, they wanted to speak with one voice in the future – voluntarily and independently. The principles were disseminated via radio and posters in the villages – and were well received. Within half a year, 100.000 members enrolled, the number doubled in the course of the following year. "The founding fathers succeeded in creating a work of art," says district chairman alois kraus with admiration 75 years later.

energy agency: carbon dioxide emissions at record high in 2012

This was announced by the international energy agency (IEA) in london on monday. "We are losing sight of our goal of global warming of no more than two degrees celsius," said IEA chief economist fatih birol.

If there is no rethinking, the world is heading for a warming of about four degrees celsius by 2100, or even up to 5.3 percent in the worst case scenario. "It’s not like you can just take your jacket off and then it’s pleasant again," birol said, alluding to the consequences.

There are encouraging signs from china and the USA, he said. In the united states, a decisive shift from coal to gas-fired power generation has brought emissions down to mid-1990s levels, he said.

Fdp demands clarity about withdrawal from afghanistan

If afghan president hamid karzai reiterates the demand that the international community withdraw as early as 2013, "he will deprive the isaf mission of an essential part of its legitimacy," hoff told the "focus" newspaper. "The nato allies are not occupiers and are in the country precisely at the request of the afghan government," she added. Otherwise the mission is pointless.

The defense politician does not see a withdrawal race among the countries involved in the afghanistan mission, according to her own words. "We all depend on each other – even when it comes to pulling the trigger," said hoff. The u.S. Does not abandon its partners: "there is still the assurance that the americans will help us with our biggest problem: the rescue of wounded with the necessary helicopters."

Karzai’s advance and his talks with the taliban are seen by hoff as an indication that he intends to stay in power beyond 2014 – even though afghanistan’s constitution forbids it. "Once the international community is gone, the constitution will be up for debate again," she said.

Rapes: drastic increase in the first half of 2017 in bavaria

A total of 685 cases appear in the police statistics, an increase of 48 percent. Particularly striking: the number of crimes attributed to immigrants rose by as much as 91 percent to 126, interior minister joachim herrmann (CSU) told the cabinet on tuesday. As a result, the total share of immigrants in all sexual offenses was 18 percent (2016: 14 percent).

The reasons for the increase in the total number are initially unclear. "Our police experts are currently working on a detailed analysis", said herrmann. In any case, sexual crimes should be combated in a more targeted manner, also in the asylum shelters. "In addition to an increased police presence, this also includes targeted preventive measures." Herrmann also called for dna samples to be taken in addition to fingerprints when registering refugees.

Apart from rapes, the number of criminal offences has fallen across bavaria. Adjusted for foreign law violations – mainly illegal border crossings by refugees – the statistics show that 282,000 crimes were committed – almost 20,500 fewer than in the same period of the previous year. The number of residential burglaries fell by almost 14 percent and the number of thefts by almost 11 percent.
