Savchenko/szolkowy about to win fourth world championship title

Only just behind the saxons with 68.63 points are the two-time world champions pang qing/tong jian (china/67.10) and the japanese narumi takahashi/mervin tran (65.37). "I am happy that axel went, but i am still surprised that we are only one point ahead of the chinese", said coach ingo steuer.

After a wonderful short program in the palais des expositions to the music of "angels and damons" by hans zimmer from the film illuminati, savchenko/szolkowy showed relief. "To survive against the good competition in the next few years, we have to come up with something and evolve," tax explained the risk with the throwing axel, which no other pair in the world has mastered. He wasn’t completely clean, though; the 28-year-old landed him on two pigeons. In addition, the landing of her partner at the toeloop was not perfect. "I’m already disappointed that the toeloop wasn’t clean," said the 32-year-old.

On the way to the winter games in sochi in two years, defeats are also taken into account in order to test new elements. For more than a year, the saxons have been fine-tuning the wurf-axel and are also being scientifically accompanied in the process. "From a theoretical point of view it’s true, we’re already a long way ahead of where we started," explained szolkowy. The daring element should work perfectly by the time the olympics come around.

Elizabeth warren drops out of u.s. Presidential race

elizabeth warren drops out of u.s. presidential race

Senator elizabeth warren has dropped out of the democrat race for the u.S. Presidential nomination. Warren officially announced her withdrawal from the race on thursday.

Unlike previous dropouts, however, she did not initially speak out in favor of one of the remaining candidates. Warren said she would have to think about the question some more. With her withdrawal, the party primaries are now finally an all-male duel between left-wing senator bernie sanders and former u.S. Vice president joe biden.

Warren had entered her party’s race with promise and had been far ahead in national polls among democratic presidential contenders for some time. But in the first four primary states of iowa, new hampshire, nevada and south carolina, she did poorly, and on "super tuesday" she also lost in 14 states: she did not win a single state, and even lost in her home state of massachusetts.

Despite ban: protests and new incidents in hong Kong

Despite a ban on demonstrations, tens of thousands of citizens again took to the streets in hong kong on sunday in support of more democracy and freedom rights. After that, riots broke out again in the chinese special administrative region.

Police used tear gas and water cannons as radical protesters at government headquarters threw rocks and incendiary devices at police forces behind barriers. Activists, mostly dressed in black and wearing gas masks and helmets, had previously set up roadblocks and damaged subway facilities.

It is the 15. Weekend in a row protesting in the former british crown colony. Protesters demand independent investigation into police brutality, amnesty for those already detained more than 1,000 and free elections. For security reasons, the police had banned the originally planned rude demonstration called by the civil human rights front. The group had already organized marches with up to more than a million participants.

Matchwinner kaymer makes ryder cup history

Matchwinner Kaymer makes Ryder Cup history

Of all things, the previously verschmahte rheinlander got the decisive 14. Point for defending champion europe in historic 14.5:13.5 comeback triumph over the USA. "The victory means a lot to me. Maybe even more than my major victory," declared germany’s acclaimed golf star after the dramatic finish.

Europe’s team captain jose maria olazabal cried uncontrollably. Never before has a european team managed to turn a 6:10 deficit into a win on the final day in the USA. The american aces around tiger woods stared unnerved and dismayed to the ground. "Epic collapse inexcusable", commented the "chicago tribune" on the collapse that was no longer considered possible. Thanks to kaymer remains the small golden trophy until 40. Ryder cup in two years at gleneagles in scotland in europe. It was his second success after the victory in 2010 in wales.

Olazabal had only used him once on the first two days of the match. Kaymer saw this as motivation. To prepare for the seemingly impossible task, the 27-year-old met with germany’s golf icon bernhard langer beforehand. "Bernhard helped me extremely much just with his presence," said kaymer. "I don’t think i would have gone to the first tee with this attitude without him."

Broadcom lowers bid for qualcomm after nxp surcharge

Broadcom lowers bid for qualcomm after nxp surcharge

The fact that the day before, qualcomm had raised its bid for the acquisition of european semiconductor specialist NXP is not relevant. Broadcom argues that this will push more qualcomm shareholder wealth to NXP shareholders.

Broadcom lowered offer to qualcomm shareholders from $82 to $79 per share. The cash component will be cut – it will drop from 60 to 57 dollars. Meanwhile, broadcom continues to offer its own shares worth 22 dollars per qualcomm share. At the same time, the three dollars will automatically be added back if the NXP deal falls through.

Broadcom’s acquisition of qualcomm has so far cost a total of 146 billion dollars: 121 billion dollars for the company plus the assumption of debt worth around 45 billion dollars.

Archbishop in heroldsbach: politics must challenge families

Bamberg archbishop ludwig schick calls on politicians to actively demand the family as a supporting pillar of society. The future federal government must make decisions that provide financial relief and support for families, said schick on saturday at the diozesan men’s day in heroldsbach.
In concrete terms, he mentioned tax relief, child-rearing allowances, recognition of child-rearing periods for pension purposes, child benefits, and family-friendly working conditions and leave of absence. The archbishop added: "but it also needs the ideal recognition of the family in our society."
In his sermon, schick spoke about jesus’ answer to the pharisees: "give to god what is god’s, and to the emperor what is the emperor’s." This succinct statement forbids the establishment of a god-state as demanded in islam. States should retain their autonomy. Christians, however, should be involved in the state and help to shape society so that it becomes humane, social and philanthropic, so that all people can live well in it.
The task of the church is to serve people in their living conditions. This was done through the proclamation of the message of jesus in the church services, but also through the media, the school curriculum, the call of church associations, kindergarten, schools, youth and senior citizen work. "What jesus set before his church and wrote in his family tree, that is what it should do at all times: honor god and serve man, so fancy.

Children make giant calendar

Children make giant calendar

Josef hofbauer for weeks the "mikis" have been, the children of the middle group in the kindertagesstatte kirchehrenbach under the direction of anna schnitzerlein and the educator and curative padagogue christian bovenschen painted a huge advent calendar. The landscape with meadows and trees, houses, paths and churches covers the two windows of the rough gymnastics room. 27 square meters is the advent calendar large. There is room for santa claus with his sleigh and the reindeer, as well as a magnificent starry sky and a (rising) sun.

In this idyllic landscape, the children have drawn the 24 windows. Healing teacher bovenschen cuts out the window every day and sticks one of the self-painted transparent pictures into the window with the help of a glue gun.

Pedagogically valuable

Meanwhile, the children sing the song of santa claus, "I hear him". Musically, they enthusiastically report how santa claus harnesses the sleigh and "with a ringing, puffing, puffing, puffing, and thump, thump, thump" coming up the stairs. "Padagogically valuable regina brand, the director of the facility, calls this action. Here a sign is set against the consumption thinking. The little ones learned to make themselves and all the other children in the kindergarten happy every day without costing anything. "There doesn’t always have to be candy in an advent calendar for children", ed. Monika haas. Christian bovenschen was in charge of the advent calendar project. He is also responsible for illuminating kirchehrenbach’s rough advent calendar in the evening. "In this way, the children learn that their work is important and is appreciated by the public", finds regina brand. She is also pleased that the little ones also learned things from christian bovenschen that the teachers "didn’t really dare to do".
