Leipzig beat Augsburg 2-1 in the German Cup - Xinhua | English.news.cn - XinhuaTuesday, August 20, 2019
Leipzig's goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi into action twice as Marco Richter and Philipp Max came close.
Andre Hahn's sloppy back pass allowed Timo Werner to get in possession of the ball inside the box. However, the German international failed to break the deadlock from promising position with 30 minutes into the game.
Augsburg reaped another chance moments later but Michael Gregoritsch's shot on target from 25 meters was not a problem for Gualcsi.
Just before the break, Leipzig's Kevin Kampl tested Augsburg's defence after unleashing two efforts on target in the 43rd minute.
After the restart, both sides needed some time to gain a foothold into the match. Hence, neither Leipzig nor Augsburg were able to produce clear-cut opportunities.
Things changed out of the blue in the 74th minute when Amadou Haidara forced a turnover before setting up for Timo Werner, who made no mistake to beat Augsburg's onrushing custodian Gregor Kobel for the opener.
The hosts responded with frenetic attacks and got rewarded in the injury time when Alfred Finnbogason poked home the equalizer to flabbergast Leipzig.
In the overtime, both teams lacked in accuracy but a blatant handball by Michael Gregoritsch inside the box allowed Marcel Halstenberg to smooth the way for the victory after converting the penalty into the top right corner.
Elsewhere, Pierre Michel Lasogga's brace helped Hamburg to eliminate Paderborn 2-0 and to book a place in the semi-finals.
The following fixtures conclude the German Cup quarterfinals on Thursday: Bayern Munich host Heidenheim and Schalke encounter Werder Bremen.
Mob violence stuns Germany, revealing deep fault lines over migration - CNNTuesday, April 23, 2019
I was surprised by the amount of resistance, distrust and how violently people reacted," says Werner Patzelt, a professor of politics at Technical University Dresden, who has been following the growth of the right-wing movement in Germany. "I fear no political action can stop this disastrous pull of events. There is a growing bitterness in Germany that no political action can stop."Vacuum of informationSo, how did a homicide in downtown Chemnitz unleash mob anger on the streets?It started at the crime scene in the vacuum that was created between what police officially reported and what was circulating on social media. "In the media, it was not immediately clear what had happened," explains Patzelt, "but what was clear was that right-wing extremists had already taken over the narrative. And they decided: We're going to make clear what the 'real reasons' behind this crime are and that's why we demonstrate."The initial police statement reported a "verbal dispute" between persons of "various nationalities" that turned violent. A 35-year old was killed and two men were apprehended. No other details on motive, weapon or who the suspects might be were released.But on social media, speculation was rampant. Within hours, online tabloid TAG24 ran a report with the headline: "Man killed attempting to defend woman from molestation." TAG24 attributed the information to a "senior official" at the crime scene.It went viral. Because it fit a narrative that right-wing extremists have been painting since the 2015 refugee crisis: Foreigners are entering the country to assault local women and attack local men. It took more than 24 hours for police to reveal that suspects in custody were a Syrian and an Iraqi, confirming some of the swirli...https://edition.cnn.com/2018/09/01/europe/germany-chemnitz-shubert-intl/index.html

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/
