Fire department at the film ball - false alarm does not dampen the party mood

What happens at the film ball, stays at the film ball": according to this motto, numerous stars will once again celebrate the start of the new film year in munich on saturday evening.

The mood at the nobelhotel bayerischer hof is exuberant, the celebrities are in good spirits – including film greats like director roland emmerich, katja riemann and jan josef liefers.

The glamorous ball, which is one of the most important events of the german film year, is opened by bavaria’s minister president markus soder (CSU) and his wife karin. "The hardest part of the evening is not a pit word, but doing the first dance" says soder while still on the red carpet. But the slow waltz goes successfully over the stage.

Bucking the nationwide trend: building land prices have fallen in the district of kulmbach

Inheriting building land in munich is like winning the lottery: the last average price per square meter of building land there was 2533 euros. For this amount, 108 square meters had to change hands in the district of kulmbach. On average, buyers paid around 23 euros per square meter of building land here, according to the reports to the tax office. This ranks 375th in the national building land price league, out of 403 evaluated independent cities and counties (whereby the further back, the lower the price per square meter).

The national average is 131 euros (previous year: 119 euros). Tendency to increase. However, not in our case: here the price dropped recently.

Rough price differences

But it can also be a bit more expensive: in the statistics, building land is once again converted into "land ready for building", "raw building land" and "other building land, which is used, for example, as open space, subdivided. The subgroups "land ready for building" and, is the most expensive form, because it means that the excavator can roll immediately, because the necessary development is available. Raw building land is much more favorable, because it is land that will be developed in the near future. This is why the two average values given by the statisticians for the kulmbach district differ: in 2017, building land cost an average of around 23 euros (previous year: 41 euros), while land ready for building even came to around 52 euros (previous year: 52 euros).

Diakonie ventures a gratuity hike

Diakonie ventures a gratuity hike

The diaconal association of maroldsweisach, as the developer of the therese stahlin house in the zeilbergsiedlung, is facing a rough tree removal. The social center with short-term and day care is to be expanded.
Chairman pastor wolfgang scheidel informed at the annual meeting in the office of the diaconal work, which is the operator, that the plans for the expansion have been approved by the home supervisory authority. Costs are expected to be 300.000 euros.

The chairman made it clear that without a secure funding the project will not be started. The diaconia association hopes for subsidies from the municipality of allianz-hofheimer-land and from the pots of the german relief organization. Scheidel spoke of a "peculiar state of affairs", sitting in the starting blocks with bated breath. But we could not get by without medium-term planning.

Pastor helmut kastner said that as a diaconal association, one not only has to manage real estate, but must also concentrate on the essential, the diaconal work. Pastor scheidel saw this as a justified objection.

Climate change: heavy rain in summer, wet and mild in winter

There he presented current germany data and climate trends based on almost two dozen regional climate models spanning the period from 1951 to 2100. Most of these predict a temperature increase of three degrees celsius by the turn of the century, compared to the long-term average of 8.2 degrees celsius. "Climate change will change our weather patterns. He’s going to get our weather chimney moving," said DWD expert klaus-jurgen schreiber.

"The basic finding is: the main wind systems and with them the high and low pressure areas tend to shift towards the poles," said schreiber. The consequences: especially in the winter months, low-pressure areas rich in rain from the west will bring dangerous heavy rains more often in the future. "This must interest flood protection above all," said schreiber.

In summer, on the other hand, humid weather conditions become rarer overall. Dry high-pressure systems over the north sea are forecast to remain stable: "this will lead to more drought and a trend toward more drought, low water and risks in water management."Agriculture in particular, but also energy suppliers and waterworks, are affected.
