A visit to the realm of the “king of kurbis” in altenbanz

A visit to the realm of the 'king of kurbis' in altenbanz

And the kurbis always beckons. At least that was the case for four years. On wednesday, however, the enjoyment hike of the spa and tourism service led to altenbanz for the last time for this program item. 13 kilometer stretch on a not so difficult run.

If there is to be a meeting at the banz monastery, then there should be a visit to the museum there as well. This marked the beginning of a high point of the 2019 enjoyment hikes for around 30 participants. Hiking guide hildegard wachter was to drive them through the wittelsbach forest and the maximilian path to altenbanz, where the kunzelmann house had been busy since the day before organizing a reception and hospitality.

Two pots of cucumber soup

At lunchtime, kathrin schmolz is standing at an electric hotplate underneath a terrace, stirring in two pots of cucurbit soup at once. She is a friend of the house, and the fact that she is here has to do with the fact that the appointment is a "jour fix once a year" is how she says. She was already involved several times, because a hiking group brings appetite with it.

Munnerstadt retail park: new study, new result

munnerstadt retail park: new study, new result

"With the bus stop in coburger strabe and the 800-meter radius, the integrated situation is fulfilled from our point of view." Markus wotruba from BBE handelsberatung however, at the city council meeting, admitted: "it's not ideal." 2. Mayor norbert reiter (CSU) saw it differently. The integrated situation is currently not given, but could possibly be created.

A new insight
Markus wotruba presented the results of the alternative site assessment and the evidence of the integrated location for the specialist retail center to the city council members and guests. He also referred to the results of the gfk survey, which had concluded that this was not an integrated location in terms of urban development. This question plays an important role in the approvability of such a project. The opinion of the redevelopment officer dag schroder was also included.
Among other things, BBE handelsberatung had to examine whether the location met the criteria of an integrated location according to the 2013 state development plan (LEP) and whether (better) alternative locations were available. BBE was not entrusted with the assessment of the possible effects of the retail park on the businesses in the city center.

Purchasing power is fleeing
"After the closure of lidl, the positive retail centrality in the periodical sector (groceries) may also have fallen to a below-average level", said markus wotruba. In all other areas, it was already well below 100 percent anyway. 100 percent means that the purchasing power remains entirely in munnerstadt. If the percentage is higher, shoppers from other towns will also come, if it is lower, people from munnerstadt will go elsewhere. The main targets of the munnerstadt residents are bad neustadt, bad kissingen and schweinfurt.
According to wotruba, customers want small stores in the city center, as well as chain stores and specialist retailers. The minimum operating size for drugstores is 500 square meters, and such stores are only located directly next to food stores. For shoe and textile stores, the sales area is 400 square meters. In the search for alternative locations, BBE handelsberatung came to the conclusion that the schindberg commercial area was not an integrated location without potential for retail trade. In the commercial area "untere au" no free spaces can be activated in sufficient form and also at the railroad station there are not enough free spaces available.
In the commercial area meininger strabe, on the other hand, there are sufficient flat areas according to the LEP 2013, the location is integrated in terms of urban development. To underline this integration, markus wotruba placed a sheet with a map on it. He had drawn a circle with a radius of 800 meters around the possible shopping center. Within this circle lie the residential area zent and parts of the old town. In addition, the bus stop in coburger strabe provides a connection to the local public transport system.

Will employees have to work longer hours in the future??

Will employees have to work longer hours in the future??

Today's working day: answering the news while having breakfast, still having your cell phone on in the evening, and always being flexibly available on weekends. An eight-hour day is no longer appropriate in view of this practice – says the council of economic experts. The german council of economic experts calls for a change in the working hours act (arbeitszeitgesetz).

Until now, the law has stipulated that an employee may not normally work more than eight hours a day. In order to create more flexibility for the employer, these requirements are to be relaxed. "More flexible working hours are important for the competitiveness of german companies", christoph schmidt, chairman of the advisory board of the federal republic, tells "welt am sonntag" newspaper. "Companies that want to survive in our new digitalized world must be agile and able to assemble their teams quickly. The idea that you start your working day in the office in the morning and end it when you leave the company is outdated", according to schmidt.

Club fans mobbed “kleeblatter

Club fans mobbed

Breach of the peace – sounds like masked left-wing extremists, squatters, and RAF sympathizers. But that is not what happened in this case. Maybe the representative of the juvenile court was right, who had repeatedly described what had happened between the train stations of hirschaid and forchheim as "adventurousness and a desire to impress" designated.

In any case, the three accused young men from forchheim have one thing in common – they are adherents of the 1. FC nurnberg. That was, after all, also the reason why they have now landed in front of the forchheim district court judge philipp fortsch. Because the three had arranged together with at least 15 like-minded people to "beat up kleeblatter".

For this purpose, they boarded a train in hirschaid, which was mainly filled with supporters of the spvgg greuther furth. The meanwhile hooded club fans stormed the train, roamed the compartments, harassed and injured – as far as they were supporters of the "weib-grunen" were identifiable – some passengers.

Nivea sales in emerging markets strengthen beiersdorf’s position

Nivea sales in emerging markets strengthen Beiersdorf's position

Beiersdorf’s bottom line was 153 million euros, almost a quarter more than in the previous year. For the year as a whole, the company aims to grow faster than the highly competitive cosmetics market with its skin care products (nivea, eucerin, la prairie) and to gain market share.

In contrast to nivea growth markets such as brazil, china or india, where double-digit growth was recorded, overall quarterly sales in europe declined by 1.2 percent. The company attributed this to the general reluctance to buy. In germany, the decline was as much as 1.8 percent. Beiersdorf had a good start to fiscal year 2013 overall, announced stefan heidenreich, ceo of beiersdorf ag. "We expanded our position in the growth regions and gained market share".

At the annual general meeting in mid-april in hamburg, the group CEO had already pointed out that the company expected only slight overall economic growth in the industrialized countries in 2013, but that dynamic economic development was anticipated in the developing countries and emerging markets. This is now reflected in the quarterly figures.
