Freeway ban also in Franconia?

The german environmental aid association (DUH) has filed a lawsuit against the state of baden-wurttemberg in order to ban diesel vehicles from driving in freiburg. Only on thursday, the administrative court in gelsenkirchen ordered a no-driving zone in essen, which includes the busy autobahn 40, following a lawsuit filed by DUH. This means that the number of stretches of road closed to diesel vehicles continues to rise. Franconia is not an air paradise either: excessive nitrogen oxide levels are measured not far from the A 73 motorway. Especially around the frankenschnellweg in nurnberg. Could a piece of highway also become a no-go zone for diesel drivers in franconia??

Limit value at 40 micrograms

The affected section in essen cuts through a residential area, with houses only a few meters from the roadway. In 2017, an annual average nitrogen dioxide value of 50 micrograms per cubic meter ( µ g/m 3 ) was measured at this location. According to the 39. Federal immission control ordinance since 2010 but only 40 micrograms.

The conditions in nurnberg are similar: the measuring point "von-der-tann-strabe" is located only about one kilometer south of the frankenschnellweg. Yesterday, the peak value during the day was quite high at 91 µ g/m 3.

Online supermarkets rely on click-happy customers

Because not every consumer has time to be driven around while shopping in the store. In metropolitan areas, the click of a mouse is already enough for lettuce and minced meat from some major suppliers.

Rewe and tengelmann compete for online customers in some cities. Suppliers are eager to take over the high-turnover weekend shopping. But the germans are much more reluctant than their neighbors.

In france, a "drive in" already attracts customers at 2,000 supermarkets, which generated two billion euros in sales in 2012, according to data from planet retail. ""Drive in"" it’s actually incredibly easy: you drive to the supermarket, open the trunk, don’t even have to get out and get the groceries packed into the car," says rewe boss alain caparros.

the hce express wins against tus ferndorf

With a clear 30:18 home win against tus ferndorf, HC erlangen continued its trend in the 2. Handball-bundesliga continues and is now unbeaten for five games. In front of a home crowd, the erlangen team was highly concentrated from the very first minute against the recently strong climber and did not leave any doubt about their determination.

HC erlangen – tus ferndorf 30:18
While in the offensive a mixture of fast counter-attacking play and powerful throws provided for the necessary goals, in the defensive area the extremely well standing cover prevented easy goals of the guests. They only managed to take the lead twice in the early stages, but soon looked helpless and had to chase a five-goal deficit after just 14 minutes (9:4). "We started the game well and took the opponent seriously right from the start," said coach bergemann, coach bergemann also praised the start of his proteges.

When after 25 minutes ruckraum-canonier nienhaus gave his comeback to the bergemannern after a long injury, the lead of the home side had already grown to eight goals and fluenced by this safe lead, the erlanger love their playfulness at times free run. So the agile schwandner passed shortly before half-time in a promising throw position again back to the waiting at the center circle kramer, who converted after a turn into the empty goal. At half-time, the HCE led by 15:8 goals and nobody in the well-attended karl-heinz-hiersemann-hall could have doubted the third home victory of the season.




After only nine minutes in the second half, erlangen had increased their lead to ten goals (20:10) and a great pass from the strong goalkeeper bayerschmidt to schwandner, who celebrated an easy goal in the tempo counter-attack, made it clear that erlangen was superior to tus ferndorf in all respects this evening.

Nature is the trend

It is no longer the endless trips to spectacular theme parks that are the most popular with children from the administrative community of wiesentheid during the vacation pass. At the meeting of the helpers and responsible persons, josef laudenbach, who is responsible for the VG, emphasized that there is "a trend towards nature". Offers such as "experience nature" or "hike and barbecue" were usually fully booked.

Mysterious evening



The places for building bird nesting boxes or for the "mysterious bat evening", which will be offered again next year, are also in great demand. Local events are preferred to long journeys. "We don’t have to reinvent the wheel, these things only happen once a year, and the children look forward to them," said laudenbach.
