The Revierderby: the history between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke - Bundesliga - official websiteTuesday, April 23, 2019
Some of the most fervent fans even refuse to utter the name of the other club, instead referring to them by their relative location from neighbouring towns. Schalke are termed 'Herne-West', while Dortmund are 'Lüdenscheid-Nord'.Despite its reputation now, however, it took the 'mother of all derbies' some time to develop into a fully fledged rivalry ready to galvanise local football fans. Its beginnings were extremely one-sided from the first competitive encounter in 1924/25 – a 4-2 win for Schalke in the then regional second division.It was 18 years and 18 competitive meetings before Borussia finally managed to win a game against one of the nation’s most dominant clubs. With legend Ernst Kuzorra in a side famed for its style of play called 'Schalker Kreisel' – an early form of one-touch football or tiki-taka – Schalke claimed six out of nine German Championships between 1934 and 1942.Few sides could match the Gelsenkirchen club on a regional or national level at that time, including Dortmund, who were beaten 7-0 at home on three occasions, as well as suffering 9-0 and 10-0 defeats. Perhaps unthinkable now, the Schalke train was in fact celebrated at Dortmund station on the way back from winning their maiden title against Nuremberg in Berlin, and they were escorted to the town hall to sign the golden visitors’ book.Schalke’s Veltins Arena is situated on Ernst-Kuzorra-Weg as a memorial to the club legend. Fans above were celebrating 100 years since his birth in 2005. - imago images / Sven SimonHowever, things began to change following World War II as BVB developed into a serious, long-term competitor for their Gelsenkirchen neighbours. A 3-2 win over Schalke in the final of the 1946/47 Westfalenliga is seen as the turning point in the battle for supremacy.Dortmund became the dominant force in western Germany’s top division before going on to claim their first three national titles in the 1950s and early 1960s. With the battle for supremacy in the Ruhr region finely balanced, the Revierderby as we know it today was born.Bundesliga era begins with a bite and a roarDortmund and Schalke were both founding members of the Bundesliga from its inception in 1963, exchanging home wins in the opening season. BVB would quickly begin to dominate the derby on the national stage with a team spearheaded by legendary strikers Timo Konietzka and Lothar Emmeric...https://www.bundesliga.com/en/bundesliga/news/revierderby-history-borussia-dortmund-schalke-3943

German zoo fire kills more than 30 animals - TRT WorldSunday, January 26, 2020
Wednesday.One of the tributes asked simply "Why?".Firefighters prevented the flames from spreading to other buildings at the zoo in North Rhine-Westphalia.Focus on fireworksPreliminary findings suggest the fire might have been caused by flying paper lanterns, which float into the air when lit.Three lanterns bearing hand-written New Year's wishes were discovered in the smouldering debris.These types of devices have been banned in the region since 2009.Police, who have launched an investigation for "arson through negligence", were contacted late Wednesday by a number of people who may have used these lanterns. Krefeld police said investigators were verifying their statements.The German animal protection association quickly called for all kinds of fireworks to be banned near zoos, farms and kennels.The deadly blaze was "terrible proof of the dramatic consequences for animals" from "uncontrolled" celebrations, the group said.Germans often use powerful fireworks to celebrate the New Year and in Berlin, rescue services on Wednesday recorded 22 injuries, some of which required amputations, from the holiday.That was roughly comparable to levels seen in previous years.The effect of fireworks on air quality has also begun to spark debate and the federal environment agency UBA estimated that the amount of fine particles released in one night was comparable to two months of highway traffic.
OMG this breaks my heart??????RIP ?????poor little souls????????Sad start of the year: In a major fire on New Years Eve in Krefeld, the ape house of the local zoo burned down completely. More than 30 monkeys died. Only the chimpanzees Bally & Limbo survived slightly injured. pic.twitter.com/Wr7FDA7Ikr— ? ?? ?? (@FranceschiJcf) January 1, 2020
Several major German supermarket and hardware chains have decided to stop selling fireworks.Demand remains strong for now, however, with the people spending around 113 million euros ($127 million) for New Year fireworks, the same amount as last year, according to sector federation VPI.Around 57 percent of the county's inhabitants would support a ban on firework sales but 84 percent of those questioned also said they looked forward to displays next year.Krefeld zoo planned to remain closed Wednesday with employees "in shock" owing to the "terrible tragedy", management said.The zoo has around 1,000 animals and attracts some 400,000 visitors a year.
Man accused of pushing boy in front of Frankfurt train had ‘psychological problems’ - The Irish TimesTuesday, August 20, 2019
Public safetyLast week a 34-year-old mother was killed in North Rhine-Westphalia when a German-born man with Serbian roots pushed her into the path of an oncoming train. The second such death in a week has sparked soul-searching in Germany about public safety, particularly in train stations.
The Frankfurt suspect was born in 1979, is married and has three children. He was granted refugee status in 2008 and had full-time employment.
“In a brochure from the firm where he works he was presented as a super integration case study,” said Horst Seehofer, Germany’s federal interior minister, who interrupted his holiday for a press conference on Tuesday.

Federal police said the man was not flagged in any databases and, as a recognised refugee, was in Germany legally. He was not checked at the border because Switzerland, though outside the EU, is an associate member of the Schengen free-travel area. The man had been sought by the Swiss police since an incident last week in which he threatened a neighbour with a knife, tried to strangle her and locked her in her apartment.
‘Cold-blooded murder’Close to tears in Berlin on Tuesday afternoon, Mr Seehofer said that, like millions of other Germans, he was “deeply shocked by the cold-blooded murder”. He announced a special body to examine boosting train station security.
“Although general criminality figures are dropping, the feeling of security among the population is very tense and cases like yesterday contribute to that,” he said, urging reporters at a press conference to “separate cleanly” crime and migration.
Instead he said Germany was facing a rise in public order offences generally – regardless of perpetrator origin – and promised extra police resources to tackle this.
Experts said it was difficult to predict what the motive in such attacks could be.
“It could be an extremely heightened disposition for violence or psychological problems, but I would be careful talking of a typical perpetrator profile,” said Prof Rudolf Egg, a criminal psychologist, to German television.
Long asparagus season in NRW ends this weekend - FreshPlaza.comTuesday, August 20, 2019
On Johannistag, June 24, it is New Year's Eve for asparagus. On this day, asparagus farmers traditionally end their harvest, says the Chamber of Agriculture of North Rhine-Westphalia. Last year, the noble vegetables were cultivated on about 4,000 hectares in NRW.
The shoots, still growing, are no longer being harvested. In the next three months, the asparagus grows up to 2 m high to form energy reserves with the help of sunlight, reserves which are stored in the roots. This secures the harvest for the next asparagus season.
The asparagus season has been running at full speed at many farms since the end of March. For the asparagus this year, there was a mix of warm, but also very cold days. The growers were able to adjust the harvest to the changing temperatures by putting covers on the fields. Since the consumer in Germany prefers white asparagus with white heads, covering the asparagus beds is indispensable.
One way to enjoy asparagus even after the asparagus season is to freeze the peeled asparagus. The last harvest days should be used by consumers to stock up. The peeled and portioned asparagus can be frozen and enjoyed at a later date. For consumption, the frozen asparagus can be put in boiling water. So that not all valuable ingredients end up in the water, ...https://www.freshplaza.com/article/9119488/long-asparagus-season-in-nrw-ends-this-weekend/
