Four students were the best

Four graduates of the dr.-ernst-schmidt-realschule ebern is this year’s best school: cedric simon, franziska richter, nico prell and sophia pickel passed their final exams with a grade point average of 1.45 and were specially honored for this at the farewell ceremony last friday. But seven other schoolchildren also shone with an A before the decimal point.
"You have improved yourselves just in the examination time to the end and have taken a good final examination", principal hartmut weis was pleased and proud that all graduates have a secure connection to their secondary school education with a company apprenticeship or further education at school.
A special thank you from the realschule director went to the three school representatives, annalena hohn, oliver krabner and leon busch. "We have achieved a lot together with your proposals, and it has been fun to work with you," he said, weis summed up. For example, the motto day was perfectly organized and many small and large ideas for improving the school day were implemented.
It was also remarkable that the three school representatives represented their school in berlin for the third time at the project selection talks for the social day 2019. Also at the organization "school – help – life" the three dedicated schoolchildren had a say in how the money generated on the social day was spent.

Challenged to commit

"The secondary school diploma is a good basis for taking on responsibility in life", deputy district administrator oskar ebert emphasized and also called on the graduating students to play an active role in shaping their homeland. Ebert emphasized that the district of habberge, as a state agency, was making great efforts to provide a good learning environment for the schoolchildren as well as the teachers. A total of 7.8 million euros was invested in the extension to the secondary school and the general renovation currently underway.
"An investment in knowledge still brings the best interest" – with this sentence by the american politician and scientist benjamin franklin, mayor jurgen hennemann made it clear to the school leavers that they will receive their first interest with their school-leaving certificate. The head of the city also invited the graduates to the old town festival on the weekend and added with a smile that this event is held every year especially for the graduating students.

Humorous closing speech

Very humorous was also the closing speech of the schoolgirls, given by leon busch, oliver krabner and philipp steppert. They began with the following words, which, according to their own statements, they often used during the past school years: "we have nothing directly prepared now, but if we all pull together, we will get the time around."

Heil defends his basic pension concept

Heil defends his basic pension concept

Labor minister hubertus heil (SPD) has rejected criticism from the union of his proposals for a basic pension. "I am thus implementing the goals of the basic pension, which are firmly anchored in the coalition agreement: recognition of life’s work and avoidance of old-age poverty."

Someone who has worked for decades has the right to receive a significantly higher pension than someone who has not worked, heil told the "rheinische post. "That is why there is to be no requirement for a conviction. After all, it’s not about almosen, it’s about life performance."

The labor minister’s plans call for millions of low-income earners to automatically receive higher pensions after a long working life. Small pensions are to be topped up by up to 447 euros a month. The union criticizes above all the fact that the actual need is not to be examined – in contrast to what was agreed in the coalition agreement between the CDU, CSU and SPD.

An irish-style feast

An irish-style feast

The danceperados of ireland perform on tuesday, 12. December, at 8 p.M. In the bamberg concert and congress hall. The enthusiasm for tap dancing is written in the name of this new irish dance show. Freely translated, it means "the dancers" – dancing, singing and playing is in the blood of the irish people.
What distinguishes danceperados from a traditional dance show is the quality of the dancers, musicians and singers. They afford themselves the luxury of taking a musical sextet on tour with them. These musicians belong to the top league of irish folk music. There are also some all ireland champions thereby. The singer geraldine macgowan is one of the pioneers of the irish folk revival of the 70s. Accordion virtuoso eimhin liddy serves as musical director.
The two-time world champion is responsible for the choreography michael donnellan responsible. He was a soloist in riverdance as well as lord of the dance. After michael flatley he was probably the tap dancer with the roughest profile and an impressive biography.
Every country has its own special way of celebrating christmas. Ireland is no exception. The danceperados will bring the audience with their "irish christmas show" the christmas customs of the green island closer.
They take the spectator back to a time before the commercialization of the christmas festival. Since many irish people, then and now, had to earn their living abroad, christmas is always the time of year when all irish people living abroad strive to get home. They have not seen their friends and families all year and they are overjoyed to be able to celebrate together. The pubs are full to bursting and whiskey and beer are flowing. In addition there will be jigs& reels are played, which also have christmas names, such as "christmas".B. "Christmas eve. Where jigs& reels are played, there is also dancing like crazy…
Last but not least it should be said that the danceperados work without playback. The musicians and dancers are looking for the artistic challenge to dance and play without a net and a double bottom. According to the organizer, this is the only way to react spontaneously and improvise.

In polls by the forsa and insa institutes also published this week, however, the SPD was at 23 to 23.5 percent.

Before the grand prix at home: where does the formula d(eutschland) stand??

Before the grand prix at home: where does the formula d(eutschland) stand??

Black. Red. Gold. The german colors appear discreetly on sebastian vettel’s racing bike, with which the four-time formula 1 world champion arrived at the drivers’ camp at the hockenheimring on friday. The flag is painted in small honeycombs on the frame of the gefahrts.

A grand prix like this in front of home fans is at least a little bit special for every formula 1 driver. For the ferrari driver, who was born not far from hockenheim in heppenheim, the little bit is a bit rougher. Vettel has yet to win on the traditional course in north baden. Last year, he was very close, but a mistake on a wet track 15 laps from the end cost him an almost tangible success.

Except for the result, the weekend was fantastic, vettel said, pointing out some of the factors that made the weekend so special: "the many fans, the many german flags, the enthusiasm around the track."To drive in the home country, that is simply "always special".
