Zeidler on course for medal - osborne in light one winner

From nowhere to the world cup final. Rowing starter oliver zeidler didn’t turn pride into pride. Just two years after his move to the one, the 22-year-old former competitive swimmer is on course for a medal.

With his second place in the semifinals, the world championship debutant continued his rapid rise to become one of the world’s best scullers. "The season goal has been achieved, what follows now is bonus," commented zeidler, looking ahead to the showdown.

Until shortly before the finish line, the athlete from ingolstadt had a thrilling board-to-board fight with defending champion ondrej synek and was even in the lead until the 1500-meter mark. When the czech passed by, the DRV’s new skiff hopefuls decided against a final sprint to save energy for the final. "It was easier than i thought," said zeidler, "there was even a bit more in it."In his opinion, the chances are not bad that for the first time since marcel hacker’s third place in 2013, a german will win a world championship medal in the skiff: "there are four people in the final race who i think are stronger than us. One of them is me."

Encounter between cult discs

Encounter between cult discs

Record borsen are places of encounter. The people of lichtenfels are always there – or where else can you meet a catholic sister and the president of the franken fastnacht association?? Scenes, language and background to an event for specialists, originals, enthusiasts and seekers.

"Music is more than just a file…" It’s written like a headline on the orange flyer, which is available in stacks at the entrance to the AC hall. This sentence is a basic attitude, and it belongs to stefan mine. The thuringer is the organizer of the record and cd fair, and his passion is music that is still tangible, that can be purchased as vinyl or cd, that doesn’t just come out of loudspeakers disconnected from everything, but is a document – for bands and their stories, for the design of albums, for zeitgeist in notes.

It’s saturday and stefan mein is here, tomorrow he will be in wurzburg with his assortment. It was easy to find a hall for the event, he says, because there’s nothing going on in halls at the moment.

Indications of u.s. Surveillance of merkel’s cell phone

Indications of u.s. surveillance of merkel's cell phone

The chancellor therefore telephoned U.S. President barack obama. She stressed that this would represent "a serious breach of trust". The weibe haus declared in a reaction that merkel was not being spied on.

According to the portal "spiegel online", which first reported on the topic, "spiegel" research had triggered the reaction of the federal government. The german intelligence services initially did not comment. The federal intelligence service and the federal office for the protection of the constitution did not want to comment on the incident when asked by dpa on wednesday evening. The federal office for information security, which is responsible for protecting government communications, could not be reached for comment on wednesday evening.

Merkel made it clear to obama that if the indications prove true, she "unequivocally disapproves of such practices and regards them as completely unacceptable," as seibert put it. Among close partners, as germany and the U.S. Have been for decades, there should be no monitoring of the communications of a head of government. Such practices had to be stopped immediately.

Personnel debate in the csu: pressure on seehofer increases

personnel debate in the csu: pressure on seehofer increases

Former bavarian minister president gunther beckstein says it is generally understandable that the CSU is discussing a change in party leadership: "i resigned as minister president with a result of 43.8 percent" the CSU politician told the radio station bayern 2 on friday. Now the CSU has received less than 39 percent in bavaria. "So it is only natural that there should be some discussion."

Beckstein, however, does not expect a renewed personnel debate about the political future of CSU leader horst seehofer before the party congress in mid november: "after the election results, all responsible bodies have agreed that the personnel debate will be put on hold during the coalition negotiations."

According to beckstein, the poor result of the CSU in the federal elections has nothing to do with a lack of conservative party profile. "We had not had the right flank open. But the question is, to what extent people believed us that we would actually enforce the upper limit", said the CSU politician. He thus contradicted – as had party colleague peter gauweiler earlier – the analysis of the CSU leadership for the election results. After the bundestag elections, seehofer demanded that the union should "flank to the right" remained.
