michael johnson on racism: eradicating resentment

"My main concern is that the whole discussion will now only be about personal racism," said four-time olympic champion "laureus" michael johnson.Com".

The 52-year-old american stressed that it is important to eradicate the resentment of small groups women racists against black people. The biggest problem, however, is "that there is a system that supports something like this. Allowing people to have such an attitude and feel comfortable with it."

Sensitized to the issue of pollution

Sensitized to the issue of pollution

More than 70 children, adolescents and adults took part in the "abenteuerland" (adventure land) community camp of the evangelic church community gleisenau. The presentations and speeches focused on the "creation entrusted to us". The adventure land in neighboring upper franconia also offered many opportunities for outdoor activities for young and old.
Among the participants leon was the youngest with six months and ida hanakam with 86 years the oldest participant. She is actually always active in church outings and activities. "I enjoyed it very much this time, too, and above all I am grateful that I can still take part in such events at this age, which is not possible for many people. But I experienced a great community here again, even though there were many young people, plus 22 children. But it was a good mixture and everybody had a lot of fun." She also emphasized that the modern day center of the evangelical deanery of kulmbach in mainleus offered the best conditions for such a rough community seminar. The rooms were functional and modern, and there were many opportunities for the children to play and run around in the grounds.
Pastor volkmar gregori had prepared the weekend with a zwolfkopf team at seven meetings. The first evening was all about getting to know each other. In addition, silka dorr, ebelsbach, had thought up activities through which people could become acquainted with each other.
On saturday morning there was the lecture "the bible – a book with seven seals?" By markus koch, steinbach, in the foreground. In the discussion groups that were offered, it was suggested to discuss the origin and the meaning of the holy scripture for people today. Meanwhile, the children went on a "discovery tour in god’s footsteps" with florian berger, ebelsbach, margitta keller, gleisenau, sandra schwesinger, steinbach, and sarah zeidler, eltmann.
In the afternoon, margitta and uwe keller, gleisenau, led the group on a three-hour hike over hill and dale, through woods and meadows, past wells and onto rocks. They made the children and adults marvel, praise and thank god for his wonderful creation.
In the evening, not only the children but also their fathers enjoyed toasting bread over the campfire and singing folk songs with guitar accompaniment by gudrun zettelmeier, stettfeld. The "good night story, read aloud by christl kab, gleisenau, captivated adults and children alike.
On the last day, the service for all, led by pastor gregori, was the high point and conclusion of the adventure land. Children had collected gauze and used it, as well as polluted water and poisoned soil, to show how lovelessly people treat god’s creation.

Repeat?

Sophie eisenmann, ebelsbach, moderated the closing session. The participants took stock with the unanimous wish: "please do it again next year"!" The one or other drink was spilled at the farewell party.

Vw airs the golf 7 secret with coarse pomp

Vw airs the golf 7 secret with coarse pomp

For the international premiere of the golf 7, europe’s biggest carmaker didn’t miss the opportunity to rent out the entire new national gallery in berlin. Within sight of potsdamer platz, the people of wolfsburg love a rough golf show from the pile, hardly inferior to many a pop concert.

Group CEO martin winterkorn did not hold back with celebratory statements: "the entire automotive world is watching here in berlin this evening."Just outside the museum, a few dozen greenpeace activists did not want to be put in a celebratory mood at all: they protested with transparencies against what they considered to be the poor consumption values of the successful model.

But the powerful VW group is not about to let the "icon" of its core brand (head of technology ulrich hackenberg) be talked down to. In the opinion of the management, the flatter and wider, but also lighter and more economical golf sets standards in terms of economy and emissions, especially in the diesel versions. This fits in well with the times of rising fuel prices and alternative drive systems – and with the sales calculations of the sales strategists, who have sold more than 29 million models of the previous six golf series since 1974.

Dfb honors josef emmert

Dfb honors josef emmert

Wolfgang niersbach, president of the german soccer association, could not have been mistaken. He had just had his governor in lower franconia, the district chairman rolf eppelein, award the DFB pin of merit to josef emmert – in recognition of many years of successful work for the sport of soccer, as it says on the accompanying certificate. Such a merit obviously also includes the ability to complete indispensable, but at the same time often perceived as burdensome, obligatory appointments in the required short time. Emmert is head of the junior division of the bavarian fubball association for lower franconia. And before it could get boring, the game group meeting he organized for the upper district leagues of the age groups U 13 to U 19 was over after just one hour.

The fact that the clubs, for which he sees himself as a service provider, are also otherwise satisfied with the 63-year-old lohrer was also confirmed this evening: under the agenda item "questions, wishes and suggestions," in which club representatives sometimes vent their anger about the association, there was no criticism of any kind.

Positive figures from the sports court

Emmert, who has served the BFV in an honorary capacity since 1993 and in his current role for the past six years, looked back on a trouble-free season. He was particularly pleased about the low number of cases in which a team did not show up for a match: this had only happened once in the district leagues, and five times the year before. In the future, a constellation like this will be rated 2:0 for the opponent – instead of x:0 as before. New is also the possibility to change the team in the junior-bezirksoberliga.
