Germany takes in cursed children

Germany takes in cursed children

Up to 1,500 children from the refugee camps on the greek agais islands are to be taken in by other european states in the coming weeks.

The admission of these minors in need of special protection is "not a question of months, but rather of weeks," a spokesman for the federal interior ministry said in berlin on monday. He emphasized that this humanitarian action was not a solo german effort.

SPD and union had decided in the night at a meeting in the chancellor’s office that greece should be supported in the "difficult humanitarian situation of about 1000 to 1500 children on the greek islands". It is about children who are seriously ill or unaccompanied and younger than 14 years, most of them girls. Negotiations are currently underway at the european level to organize a "coalition of the willing" to take over these children. "Within this framework, germany stands ready to take on an appropriate share," the coalition announced.

Altmaier: U.S. Penal tariffs to have little impact on german economy

Altmaier: u.s. penal tariffs to have little impact on german economy

The damage to the german steel stoves will be limited, the CDU politician told the "welt am sonntag" newspaper. "I believe that german steel exporters supply such high quality steel for special applications that u.S. Customers cannot do without it and that the german side does not have to fear for its market share."

Altmaier reacted calmly to the possibility that U.S. President donald trump might impose further punitive tariffs and, for example, make it more expensive to export german cars: "we shouldn’t let ourselves get carried away. No one in the U.S. Has claimed that there is any automatism in this regard."He had also met members of congress in washington who were well aware of how many jobs german companies have created in the u.S. "Especially the car manufacturers," said altmaier.

The vice chairman of the union faction in the bundestag, carsten linnemann, made a plea for further negotiations between the eu and washington. The european union must "continue to seek dialogue with the americans without making itself small," the CDU politician told "bild am sonntag" newspaper. The leader of the conservative party in the european parliament, manfred weber (CSU), said they were open for discussion "up to a new start for an eu-us free trade agreement". However, the EU "must not let trump dictate the terms".

Sg bad rodach/grobwalbur aims for first win at the second-last place in the table

Four games continue this weekend in the handball-bezirksoberliga der manner. The game between TV weidhausen and SG marktleuthen/niederlamitz in michelau's mainfeldhalle (sunday, 15.30 hrs) is a catch-up game from the preliminary round. Thus the teams of the coaches frank steinberger and horst roch meet for the first time in this season. In the previous year, the TVW remained without defeat in two close encounters (25:24, 26:26). The hosts are not quite carefree in this game, because the injury misfortune remains faithful weidhausen. Right wing tim pechauf has undergone knee surgery and will be out until the end of the season with a torn ape ligament. The back players maximilian werner and florian buttner both have shoulder complaints, a possible use will be decided in the short term.
The situation seems to be clear in the match between HG hut/ahorn and unbeaten table leader HG kunstadt on sunday at 14:00.30 o'clock. After the sovereign victory in the top match against chaser haspo bayreuth II, the HGK can only put itself in the way of the title award. The andersson troupe was even allowed to lose two more games and was still top of the class. But such mind games quickly drove in the wrong direction, which is why the kunstadt team will certainly not take the game at HG hut/ahorn lightly. In the first of the six final games still to be played, oester& co also a well-rehearsed ahorner squad that has steadily improved compared to the previous season.
If not now, when? That must be the motto of the SG bad rodach/grobwalbur on saturday at 16.15 o'clock at the SG 12 bamberg/hallstadt be. If the first win of the season is not finally achieved against the direct competitor for the league title, the leap to 10th place seems unrealistic. In the first leg, it was only enough for a 28:28 draw, although this could even be considered a success with a four-goal deficit six minutes before the end of the game. The people of badstad often felt that a little more peace and quiet would do them good. In terms of time penalties and red cards, the team leads the table in the upper district league, often throwing itself out of the rhythm of the game.
