'Little Britain' in Germany's Rhine region lives on borrowed time - DW (English)

Saturday, December 8, 2018

The local authorities said they had until the beginning of August to remove nearly everything from the area and erect a gate to keep people out. "I don't see any reason why this should go," says a tanned 60-year-old man from a nearby town. He says he has come to see for himself what the problem is. "It's a pretty site. Neat and tidy. I could see if people were making noise and getting drunk and partying," the man says. Read more: Would Margaret Thatcher be on favor of Brexit? The exhibition is on private property registered to Gary's wife, Monika, right next to where the couple lives with their youngest children and he has his business. But they don't have a building plan or building permits for the many items that make up the exhibition. The situation is complicated by the fact that they are leasing an additional strip of land next to their property and to Little Britain from the local municipality. And then there is the tank. Blackburn's father gave him a toy tank of the same model when he was a boy. He keeps it in his office Second thoughts about becoming German Last year Blackburn bought and installed a 52-ton British tank. That drew national and some international attention. It was briefly an issue in the Rhineland-Palatinate state parliament. His immediate neighbors complained, telling local media the exhibition was tasteless and that it put off clients at their consultancy next door. They were unwilling to speak to DW about it. "I put the tank there as a monument to freedom and peace," Blackburn says. "People shouldn't forget about things."

Scent Club: The Berlin Art Collective Obsessed with Smells

Thursday, June 21, 2018

Poland, and she's fond of that smell, but some people think it stinks. That category goes beyond food, too. In recalling her upbringing in an industrial area, Pawlowska also thinks of tanneries and tobacco. Sifre misses the smell of humidity that surrounds her island. Another member, Mareike Bode, associates her life in Germany with the smell of forest, grass, flowers, and fresh air smells she doesn't get so clearly now that she lives in Berlin.Scents through history are another route of exploration. Earlier this year, a meetup featured Dora Goldsmith, a PhD student of Egyptology at the Free University of Berlin. "She basically told us how in Egypt the smell of a person was really tied to their level, their status in life," Sifre says. "So worker smell, fish, steelworkers. Then you have the smells of pharaohs and the women, and then you have the smell of the gods, which was very interesting because they had a lot of incense, and lotus flower was very significant."They're also continually adding to an archive of scents, which Sifre relates to a seed library in terms of the effort to preserve smells that could be eventually be extinct. Those that are already long gone are recreated. "We love the idea of having a space where you could kind of rent out a smell, like you would rent out a book, and work with that," Sifre says.It's not all pleasant smells for Scent Club, of course. Pungence is a predilection for one member, artist Alanna Lynch. "She is very much into odors and things that stink," Pawlowska says. That can include sweat, or even urine, which Lynch once used in an installation. Sifre adds that they're currently building a workshop around the different stages of death. (They'll be recreating the smells with common materials).Today, however, the aromas aren't so harsh. Scent Club Berlin is running olfactory tours of an exhibit centered on immersive spaces at Gropius Bau/Berliner Festspiele now and tomorrow. During our chat, they hinted at exploring the smell of light, like fire or electricity. But on Facebook today, they posted an image of three vials blood (labdanum accord), metal (rice paddy herb), and gunpowder (cade tar oil) and mysteriously asked, "What does outer space smell like?" "I think people really enjoy the meetups because it's a very relaxed environment. It's very accessible," Sifre says. "The good thing about the Scent Club is it's not like you're going into a lecture or you're going to a class. We're going to share our knowledge and we're going to enjoy smelling stuff, which is what the Scent Club is about."Click here for more on Scent Club Berlin's olfactory tour of Welt ohne Außen, and check out Scent Club Berlin on Facebook for info on future events.

German teachers fined for treating wasp sting with heated fork - DW (English)

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Two teachers at a school in the western German state of Hesse were fined for causing bodily harm with their questionable home remedy for a student's wasp sting. The incident occurred during a school trip to a youth hostel in the neighboring state of Rhineland-Palatinate in May 2017, when a 14-year-old student was stung by a wasp. In response, a 39-year-old male teacher heated the handle of a fork with a lighter and pressed it on the boy's hand where he'd been stung. After a blister formed, another 40-year-old female teacher cut it open and treated the wound with cream. The student's lawyer said that as a result of the sting, the boy had to wear a protective glove for a considerable period of time. The German daily Bild reported that the boy's hand became infected and that he wasn't able to attend an internship as a result. A district court in Cochem fined the male teacher €2,700 ($3,160) for causing bodily harm. The female teacher was fined €2,500 ($2,900) for both assisting and causing bodily harm to the student. The decision was...https://www.dw.com/en/german-teachers-fined-for-treating-wasp-sting-with-heated-fork/a-45505055

Germany’s new Green divide - POLITICO.eu

Saturday, December 8, 2018

In one of Germanys most prosperous states, the Greens won 18 percent of the vote and became the second-largest party. It then achieved a similar feat in the neighboring state of Hesse, where it won 20 percent of the vote. It remains to be seen whether the party will be able to cement its support and become the champion of Germanys cosmopolitan-liberal camp for years to come. In early November, the Greens overtook the rapidly deflating SPD in nationwide opinion polls. One survey put the partys support at 24 percent, just three points below that of Chancellor Angela Merkels Christian Democratic Union. In a snap election, such a result would establish the Greens as Germanys largest left-wing force an enormous leap for the once marginal party. Buoyed by these recent successes, Greens from across Europe are gathering in Berlin this weekend to rev up their campaign for next May's European Parliament election. In the minds of many German voters, the Greens have established themselves as the polar opposite of the AfD and those who adopt a similar rhetoric. I didnt have to think about it very long, it was crystal clear, says Doris Langer, 45, of her decision to vote Green in the Bavarian election. The communications specialist from Munich used to think of herself as largely apolitical and has voted for various center-left and center-right parties in the past. But when Bavarias ruling Christian Social Union, the CDUs sister party, shifted rightward particularly on migration, a subject she cares about deeply Langer saw the Greens as her only option. They are the only ones who have a liberal refugee policy, she says. Merkels sentence from 2015, that ‘We can do it, the Greens are the only ones who take it seriously. * * * The Green surge could not have happened without the collapse of the SPD. In the birthplace of social democracy, the SPD held out longer than likeminded parties in other places in Europe. But its decline reaches back decades. In a way, social democracy became a victim of its own success. The SPD is Germanys oldest existing party. Since taking on its current name in 1890, it has dipped below 20 percent in nationwide elections only once, in 1933; the party was banned by the new Nazi government shortly after. After the war, the SPD became Germanys leading left-wing force, locked in a battle with the center-right Christian Democratic Union. After abandoning its Marxist tenets in 1959, drawing up plans to reform rather than abolish capitalism, the party gradually expanded beyond its working-class roots. Reinvented, the party attracted centrist and middle-class voters, leading to a series of SPD victories in the 1970s. Back in opposition in the 1980s and 90s, the party led regional governments in several states. The SPD governed once more between 1998 and 2005, together with the Greens. (As junior coalition partners, the Greens were weaker and less influential than now; this seven-year period was their first and so far only time in power.) But even in the SPDs 1970s heyday, its core base was already eroding. The structure of Germanys economy was changing, and with it the countrys workers. img class="wp-image-981725 size-ev-full-width"...https://www.politico.eu/article/germany-green-party-haidhausen-munich-elections-social-democrats-spd-is-the-new-red/

Elvis Presley traffic lights appear in German town of Friedberg - DW (English)

Why is he there? Presley had a strong connection with Friedberg, a town of around 28,000 inhabitants, located 26 kilometers (16 miles) north of Frankfurt in the state of Hesse.

He lived in nearby Bad Nauheim. Elvis Presley in his US Army uniform while stationed in Friedberg It was there he met his future wife, Priscilla Beaulieu, whom he married after a seven-year relationship. Both towns are keen to make sure no one forgets "the King," who died in 1977, or their connections to him. While Friedberg first switched on the new traffic lights on Wednesday, Bad Nauheim holds the 'European Elvis Festival' and is planning a bronze statue of him. Flowers and pictures of Elvis left at his memorial in Bad Nauheim Bad Nauheim has long been a site of pilgrimage for Elvis' fans, and people lay candles, flowers and gifts for him. A little more action According to Götz, it took three months for the police to give the go-ahead and then a local graphic designer to send his ideas to the manufacturer. However, the work appears to have paid off, with the Wetterauer Zeitung reporting positive reviews. "Good idea," "witty," "something a little different," were some of the reactions. One person added, "I did wonder about it, but as always I crossed on green." Following a trend Transforming traffic lights has become something of a trend in Germany. The most famous are the Ampelmännchen in Berlin. Created in 1961 in what was then East Berlin, they now appear all over the united capital.

Flower-Power für Bayern

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Ouml;ko-Partei - und das längst nicht nur in Bayern. Ein Blick in die bundesweiten Umfragen: Auf Bundesebene bis zu 18 Prozent, nach nur 8,9 Prozent bei der Bundestagswahl im Herbst; in Hessen, wo Ende Oktober gewählt wird, 18 Prozent; in Nordrhein-Westfalen, wo sie letzten Sommer mit 6,4 Prozent aus der Regierung flogen, 17 Prozent. Längst werden die Grünen als mögliche neue Volkspartei gehandelt. Und immer wieder wird der Erfolg vor allem einem zugeschrieben - Shootingstar Robert Habeck, 49, Parteichef und Publikumsmagnet. Der Schleswig-Holsteiner tourt seit Tagen durch Bayern und veröffentlicht im Netz nicht nur Bilder von sich beim Bügeln und beim Fitnesstraining, sondern vor allem von vielen Menschen, die zu seinen Veranstaltungen kommen, reden und zuhören wollen. Was in Bayern passiere sei eine „Frischluftzufuhr für die Demokratie, schreibt er, und meint damit, dass die Alleinherrschaft der CSU wackelt. Für Habeck und Co-Parteichefin Annalena Baerbock ist diese Wahl wichtig, denn es ist die erste, seit die beiden im Januar auf Cem Özdemir und Simone Peter folgten. Seitdem arbeiten sie daran, den Grünen ein harmonisches, optimistisches, fröhliches Image zu verpassen. Scheinbar mit Erfolg, jedenfalls sehen die Umfragen danach aus. Dass mit Dieselkrise, Klimawandel und Braunkohle-Streit Ökothemen Hochkonjunktur haben, dürfte ihnen dabei zugute kommen. „Die neue SPD, „die neue Volkspartei - solche Labels werden den Grünen nun schon eine Weile verpasst. Das Spitzenpersonal genießt das offensichtlich, der schlimme Kater nach dem Platzen der Jamaika-Verhandlungen im Bund mit Union und FDP ist überstanden. Aber wenn es in Bayern wirklich glänzend läuft, könnte das auch Probleme bringen - Koalitionsverhandlungen der beiden Lieblingsfeinde CSU und Grüne hätten es in sich. Ausgeschlossen sind sie trotzdem nicht, wenn es für CSU und Freie Wähler - eventuell n...https://www.sz-online.de/nachrichten/flower-power-fuer-bayern-4029228.html
