Truck rams into German Christmas market, killing 12 people - WFLA

Friday, February 3, 2017

Islamic State group. Five people were wounded in an ax rampage on a train near Wuerzburg and 15 in a bombing outside a bar in Ansbach, both in the southern state of Bavaria. Both attackers were killed. Those attacks, and two others unrelated to Islamic extremism in the same weeklong period, helped stoke tensions in Germany over the arrival last year of 890,000 migrants. ___ Associated Press writers David Rising, Geir Moulson and Frank Jordans in Berlin and Lori Hinnant in Paris contributed to this report.

Berlin Christmas market attack 'affects all Europe' - EurActiv

Thursday, December 22, 2016

Belgium and France. But it was shaken by two smaller attacks in Bavaria over the summer, one on a train near Würzburg and another at a music festival in Ansbach that wounded 20 people. Both were also claimed to have been carried out by Islamic State. And government officials have said the country, which accepted nearly 900,000 migrants last year, many from the war-torn Middle East, lies in the “crosshairs of terrorism”. In mid-October, police arrested a Syrian refugee suspected of planning a bomb attack on an airport in Berlin. The 22-year-old man committed suicide in prison shortly after his arrest. People urged to stay away A government spokesman said Chancellor Angela Merkel was briefed on the situation by de Maizière and Berlin’s mayor. Police said there were no indications of further dangerous situations in the area but urged people to stay away from the scene. “I’m deeply shaken about the horrible news of what occurred at the memorial church in Berlin,” Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said. The truck veered into the market around 8pm, normally a crowded time when adults and children would be gathering in the traditional cluster of wooden huts that sell food and Christmas goods in an annual celebration replicated across Germany and much of Central Europe. Ariel Zurawski, whose Polish freight company owns the truck, said the driver of the truck did not work for him. “It wasn’t my driver,” Zurawski told Polish private broadcaster TVN 24. “I vouch for him. He’s my cousin.” The incident took place near a famous Berlin landmark, the Gedächtniskirche or memorial church, built in 1891-95, which was left a ruin with a jagged tower after it was damaged in World War Two bombing raids as a monument to peace and reconciliation. Police cars and ambulances converged quickly on the scene. Please help us. Stay home and do not spread rumors.

Germany has become safer - Deutsche Welle

Thursday, December 22, 2016

The massacre in Munich, the terrorist attacks in Ansbach and Würzburg, the knife attack in Reutlingen - many people in Germany are worried. The more so as the mass sexual assaults on New Year's Eve in Cologne had already undermined the country's sense of security. Since then Germany has wrestled with the question of whether it has imported violence and crime by bringing in more than one million migrants. But criminologist Christian Pfeiffer says this is only a matter of perception. "Germany has continuously become safer," he said in an interview with DW. The longtime head of the Criminological Research Institute of Lower Saxony pointed to police crime statistics: Murder and manslaughter rates, he said, had gone down by 40 percent since 2000. Sexual violence is also at its lowest level in a long time. "Rape also continued to fall in 2015 compared to previous years, even though we had very large-scale immigration, especially of young men," he said. "Yet there is not a single violent offense that has risen in frequency." Overstated dang...http://www.dw.com/en/germany-has-become-safer/a-19444826

Flower vases, urns, fountains prove popular with collectors

Saturday, July 14, 2018

Q. Can you give me any information about a devil creamer? It’s red-orange and is shaped like a devil on his knees. The cream pours out of his mouth. The bottom is marked “Royal Bayreuth, Bavaria,” with a lion holding a shield with the letter “T” on it. The date 1794 is below the shield. A. Royal Bayreuth is known for its creamers, pitchers, cracker jars, bowls, salt and pepper shakers, and other items made in the shapes of fruit, tomatoes, lobsters, shells, flowers, animals, birds, clowns and more. The red devil is part of a group of pieces known as “Devil & Cards,” a group that was shaped like a devil, playing cards or both. The red devil alone was made as a 31/2-inch creamer, a 41/2-inch milk pitcher and two different ashtrays. A black devil also was made. The mark on your creamer, in blue, green or black, was used after 1900. The date on the mark is the year Royal Bayreuth was founded in Tettau, Bavaria. The company still is in business, now making dinnerware. There is a club for collectors, the Royal Bayreuth Collectors Club (RoyalBayreuth.org), which has an annual convention. A creamer like yours sold for $360 last year. <!-- OAS_AD('Middle'); //--> Q. I bought this cuff bracelet years ago at a yard sale. It’s about 2 inches wide and I don’t know what metal it is, but it has an antiqued finish. The inside has a mark for Miriam Haskell, but it doesn’t look like her typical costume jewelry. Can you help and maybe give me a value? A. The finish on your bracelet is called Russian gold. Other designers of vintage costume jewelry used similar finishes, but Miriam Haskell’s company used a secret signature Russian gold plating recipe developed just for them that resulted in patinas ranging from dull to bright. It was a type of gold plating on brass, and the plating solution is said to have 24-karat gold among the secret ingredients. Pieces were hand-dipped and then sealed. Many were further embellished with glass beads, faux seed pearls and other decoration. Haskell’s Russian gold also is found on many their filigree pieces. Asking prices for Miriam Haskell hinged bracelets like yours range from $100 to $250, but we’ve found selling prices to be less than $100. Embellished examples are worth more. Q. I have my great-grandfather’s accordion, a Pre-1900 Hohner two-row button diatonic. It was appraised and I was told it would fetch four figures. I’d love to keep it, but no one in my family wants it. It’s normal fifth scalar organization, 20 plus treble buttons and 12 bass buttons in very good condition. Where should I start? A. You probably will get the highest price by selling the accordion at an auction of other antique musical instruments. Expect to pay the auction gallery a commission, a percentage of the hammer price. Fees a...http://www.vindy.com/news/2018/jun/24/flower-vases-urns-fountains-prove-popula/

What's in a Home? - CityLab

Friday, April 13, 2018

He was astonished by Peru’s diversity, both in terms of geography and inhabitants, as he traveled around the country.Thomas Dworzak travelled around the world—Bavaria, Georgia, Iran—to capture the places he had called home: places that he says still burn within him. Of Tblisi, Georgia, in particular, Dworzak wrote in the forward to his photo set, “I force myself away for longer periods but am sure to always come back. And still, I will always remain a foreigner…I think I will never gain the same level of understanding, the language, the dialect, the humor, than whenever I return to visit my father in that place I left so desperately 30 years ago.” Dworzak photographed his father in the Bavarian village from which he was deported as a child; his wife in Tehran; his friends in Tblisi. While Dworzak also included images of location and scenery, it is clear that, for him, home is haunted by the people who inhabit it.It is impossible for “home” to be interpreted exactly the same way by different people, influenced as we are by entirely different things: the way light strikes the wall of our favorite diner, the curve of our grandmother’s cheek, the way it feels to walk the same street for years. But the book proves that there are many ways to think about a home, and even more ways to visualize it.Home is available for purchase at the Magnum shop.

Keukenhof Gardens: Discover a wealth of flowers - United States Army

Friday, April 13, 2018

Dutch growers and a wealth of flowers, sorted by color. The Keukenhof, translated to Kitchen Garden, owes its name to Countess Jacoba van Beieren (Jaqueline of Bavaria), who had a castle at this location in the 15th century. She stayed there very often, because the area provided good hunting grounds. Herbs and vegetables were grown in the yard for her kitchen and these have given way to more colorful plants and flowers. Over six million flower bulbs provide beautiful scenic spots throughout the park. Large flower palaces are filled with oceans of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and smaller varieties of their species as well as orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies and many more flowers. As the season progresses, the emphasis shifts to different groups of flowers. It is a display of colors and an overwhelming perfume.Endless varieties of tulips can be seen most of the time, but the best time to view them is mid-April. Other flowers bloom again at a different time. However, the park is always a colorful sight. The flower shops in the park can actually mail flower bulbs to the U.S. for customers.The park is open only in the spring time. This year, you can visit from March 22 to May 23. The Keukenhof is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Ticket office closes at 6 p.m. Entry is €16 for adults and €8 for children age 4 to 11.
