The Constitutional Court (VfGH) has the runoff election from. May canceled due to many formal errors. This means that in autumn there will be another duel between the Green Lexander Van der Bellen and the FPÖ candidate Norbert Hofer. The mts business of Federal President Heinz Fischer, who is leaving mt on July after twelve years, will take over the presidium of the National Council, to which Hofer belongs, until then. The aim of the judgment is to strengthen trust in our constitutional state and thus in our democracy, said VfGH President Gerhart Holzinger. The counting of the votes of the postal voters did not result in electoral fraud, but processes such as the premature opening and improper storage of the envelopes as well as the partial counting by unauthorized persons are reason enough for a new edition. The electoral law is strict. FPÖ candidate Hofer lost only 000 votes to Van der Bellen after the postal votes were counted. t was the closest election result in the history of the lpen republic. The FPÖ had challenged the result in early June and complained about irregularities in the electoral districts. According to the Ministry of the Interior, the new edition will cost taxpayers ten million euros. To clarify the FPÖ allegations, the VfGH heard witnesses from the district election authorities on several days of the trial. Numerous electoral officials admitted violations of the rules at ltenburg during surveys. The technical relief organization wants to help with digital dangers in the future, announced the state representative Manuel lmanzor in the run-up to the ceremony for the 0-year anniversary. Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière (CDU) is expected today at the event in Ltenburg Castle. So far we have been using a lot of analog technology to help with floods or other environmental disasters, for example. Increasingly, human lives also depend on digital technology running uninterrupted, said lmanzor. He gave examples when the power supply to computers in hospitals is at risk or when such computers are exposed to attack. Human lives increasingly depend on this technology, said the state representative. The technical relief organization wants to help secure such systems. We need helpers to count the postal votes. Accordingly, a number of regulations were violated. The court also prohibited the premature nationwide dissemination of partial results of the Federal President's runoff election to the media and research institutes. This process was one of the reasons for the nationwide suspension of the runoff election, said Holzinger. This publication violates the principle of freedom of choice, the President said. It cannot be ruled out that the transfer to selected recipients could have an influence on the result. Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka now wants to work with Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz (both ÖVP) to ensure that election observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSZ) are deployed in the districts that made mistakes. Sobotka said it was still unclear whether there would be any personal consequences in the authorities. The government wants to discuss the exact date of the runoff election for the highest mt in the state next week. The German federal government sees no consequences for the relationship between Berlin and Vienna because of the re-election. a comment dpa Technical Relief Organization is preparing for digital dangers By Martin Debes Looking forward to the international classic against Italy The nine-year-old Marit is currently visiting her grandparents in Zeulenroda.

Preparations have started, said the initiative's spokeswoman, Sabine Kraft-Zörcher. m. ugust it will start. rfurt. At least 000 people must support the referendum with their signature within six weeks. Only then can the self-government association in Thuringia submit the application to the President of the Landtag, Christian Carius (CDU), who will check it formally. The actual collection will begin after winter, said Kraft-Zörcher. Then within four months and presses the German national team today bend in the M quarter-finals against Italy, at least signatures have to come together, which corresponds to the required ten percent of the electorate. The referendum is directed against the so-called preliminary law, with which the territorial reform is initiated. It came into force yesterday and regulates the future minimum sizes for all municipalities (000 inhabitants), urban districts (people) and districts (0 000 inhabitants). Most of the communities lose their independence The association, which according to its own statements has 0 members as well as hundreds of supporters, protests above all against the creation of administrative communities. Almost three quarters of the communities are organized in this. Almost all of them are now likely to lose their independence. The same applies to the majority of the remaining municipalities, which also have less than 000 inhabitants. Lawyers and municipal experts such as the former Interior Minister Richard Dewes (SPD) therefore consider the law to be unconstitutional. They argue that the state must give the municipalities an alternative requirement of self-administration in addition to the commune. The parliamentary groups of the Left, SPD and Greens had therefore recently written the model of the large rural community into the law. There the incorporated localities could keep part of their budget and statute rights. However, the possibility is only limited to 0, which is not the thumb. With it, many East Thuringians are surely looking forward to the classic soccer game and are only criticized by the central municipal associations. With yesterday. July began the one-year phase in which the municipalities can voluntarily look for merger partners, although the state parliament reserves the last word here. The associations are to be funded with millions of uros. he interior minister Holger Poppenhäger (SPD) wants to present his plans for the new district structure during the first collection of signatures in August and September. The models debated so far have met with bitter resistance, especially in West and South Thuringia. It is assumed that the number of counties and urban districts will be at least halved. The reform should be completed in spring 0. bend will probably flock again in large numbers to the various public viewing locations. Photo: Peter Michaelis who want to deal with such topics. In addition, the technical relief organization is currently checking whether it will set up other local branches in Thuringia.

The frustrated Murphy summed up the bad flop as follows: Everything that can go wrong will go wrong. Unfortunately, if you look at urope, you have to realize that Murphy's law is currently the supreme underground law. After multiple financial crises, a cacophony in the refugee crisis, a barely prevented Grexit and Brexit, the next political disaster is hailing in: Austria has to repeat the federal presidential election. Unfortunately, the embarrassing new election cannot be ticked off as an alpine farce, the background is too dramatic. With the new elections, right-wing populism in Europe could face a huge boost. Fired by the Brexit success, supporters of the right-wing populists have the chance to turn a narrow defeat into a victory. There would be no liberal-minded Federal President Van der Bellen, but Norbert Hofer from the FPÖ. Hofer has already discussed an Öxit and is diligently setting ultimatums in Brussels. By law, Hofer is already head of state because, according to the constitution, the three national council presidents have to take over the vacant mt of the federal president. So Hofer is going into the third round of voting with mtsbonus. If the FPÖ succeeds in the election sensation, Poland, France and Denmark, as well as neighboring Austria, would take a right course, which would not be good news for the German Chancellor in the Middle. ngela Merkel is desperately trying to save what can be saved with her political weight in uropan. For this she needs every ally, including the little ones like Austria. A crisis in Austria with the Federal President and Chancellor as opponents is really the last thing that shaky Europe needs now. #GRILLMISTR R Post a cool photo now, become a #Grillmeister and take part in the THÜROS grill workshop!

How do you deal with the rbe that you took over from your predecessor Yatsenjuk? I have a great responsibility to continue the reforms. These include fighting corruption, improving the investment climate and fundamental judicial reform. We must also strengthen the security and defense of our country. The ggression from outside continues. What is the situation like in eastern Ukraine? The world needs to understand what is happening: Russia has brought soldiers and weapons to the territory of another sovereign state. In the past few hours, shots from Russian weapons have been fired at our positions. Every day, Ukrainian soldiers and citizens are shot at from Russian tanks on our own territory. Can you prove that? absolutely. Our security services have reliable information.

Russia is militarily superior. What is your strategy? Only the state is powerful if it respects the law. Russia draws its strength from violence and disregards international law. The occupation of part of our sovereign Ukraine is a challenge for the entire civilized world. The international community must force Russia to withdraw into its own territory. The sanctions are there to keep the pressure going. Crimea has been annexed by Russia and a withdrawal does not seem likely. Legally speaking, Crimea remains Ukrainian. Moscow has set up a military base on the Black Sea Peninsula, which is also a threat to other countries. The world must stand together. As a leading European nation, Germany plays a special role in this. Do you want to lead Ukraine into NATO? For Ukraine, the door to NATO must be open.

Reker perpetrator has to go to prison for years Nine months ago, one day before she was elected mayor of Cologne, Henriette Reker was almost killed by an assassin, the stabber was now on trial. r wanted to set an example with the bloody act, says the judge. A compromise in the dispute about safe countries of origin is to be reached by detour via the recognition rate. This is what nine of the ten federal states with greens in the state government offer. By Martin Debes rfurt. In the dispute over the recent tightening of the syl law, the Greens of the federal government have made a compromise.The Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court has imposed years for the deed against today's Mayor of Cologne, Henriette Reker. The court yesterday found the -year-old perpetrator guilty of attempted murder. r wanted to send a signal against the refugee policy of the federal government, said the presiding judge Barbara Havliza in her judgment. r wanted to create a climate of fear and influence politics. Perpetrator Frank S. had rammed a large hunting knife into Reker's neck on October 0, the day before she was elected mayor of Cologne. The -year-old was in acute danger of death and was in an artificial coma for several days. The blade had severed almost all of her windpipe and hit a thoracic vertebra. The federal prosecutor's office had lifelong imprisonment, the defense attorney asked for a maximum of years. While reading the verdict, Frank S. shook his head briefly on the bench. r had belonged to the right-wing scene in Bonn in the 0s and had already been imprisoned for three years for a series of predominantly right-wing extremist acts of violence. r had also submitted blows to neo-Nazi marches for Hitler officials. According to a point paper that our newspaper has, they continue to reject an expansion of the so-called safe countries of origin. At the same time, however, the accelerated procedure for applicants from countries with a low sylan recognition rate is to be used in the future, which would apply to the controversial Maghreb states. In addition, the Greens require an immediate residence permit for the only syl applicants, the application of which has not been decided after more than a year. You need a clear cut, it says in the paper. This would make the procedures obsolete. In mid-June, the controversial classification of Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria as safe countries of origin was postponed in the Federal Council due to opposition from the Greens. Rudolf Hess took part. Frank S. had confessed to the crime in the process, but he also said that he did not want to kill Reker. r only wanted to prevent her as mayor, whom he accused of a left-wing radical soteric policy. The non-party Reker was supported in the election campaign by the CDU, FDP and the Greens. r did not consider the federal government to be entitled to allow refugees into the country, said Judge Havliza. In his opinion, the federal government committed high treason. On the other hand, r wanted to set an extreme and brutal sign. According to a police officer, Frank S. had also considered an act of assassination against Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU), but saw no chance of getting to her. In addition to Reker, four other people were injured by knife stabs in Cologne. The psychiatric expert Prof. Norbert Leygraf had attested the defendant a paranoid-narcissistic personality disorder. r was nevertheless fully culpable. dpa The law, which had already been passed by a coalition majority in the Bundestag, was taken off the agenda again. For a majority in the state chamber, the Union and the SPD need at least the votes of three of the ten countries in which the Greens are in government. The party had previously rejected the requirement to continue to grant full protection to particularly endangered groups such as homosexuals, political actors or journalists from the Maghreb. With the exception of Baden-Württemberg, where the Green Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann feels obliged to his partner CDU, the new paper was written by politicians from the Greens from all ten federal states. Environment Minister nja Siegesmund is one of the signatories from Thuringia. Istanbul. According to information from a US Congressman, the attack on Taturk Airport in Istanbul was planned by a Chechen IS terrorist. I admit that Khmed Chataev was the mastermind behind the bloody act, said Michael McCaul, chairman of the Homeland Security Committee in the House of Representatives. McCaul relied on information from Turkish intelligence circles. There was initially no confirmation from the American security authorities or the Turkish government for a Chechen mastermind. President Recep Tayyip rdogan said yesterday that there is a high probability that the terrorist militia Islamic State (IS) carried out the attack. They say they are doing this in the name of Islam. They have nothing to do with Islam and the like. Your place is in hell. A total of people were killed in the attack, including the three perpetrators. According to information from Turkish government circles on Thursday, they were an Uzbek, a Kyrgyz and a Russian citizen. What is that?

The Constitutional Court only takes action if authorized persons submit an application to review irregularities. The court's decisions are made by a majority behind closed doors.

3 Ostthüringer Zeitung page DasThema OCPL Saturday ,. July 0 Technisches Hilfswerk suchthelfer and new utos Some of our vehicles are older than the helpers who use them, says the Thuringian THW boss. The regional association celebrates its 0th anniversary today and is considering founding new local associations. By Tino Zippel ltenburg. In many cases, when streets are flooded, it is not just the fire brigade who can help. Mostly blue vehicles with blue lights also arrive: the Technische Hilfswerk (THW), the civil and disaster control organization of the Federal Republic. The regional association for Saxony and Thuringia is celebrating its 0th anniversary today at Ltenburg Castle. Many local chapters were founded earlier, says the state representative Manuel lmanzor. The Thuringian associations came into being under the wing of the Hessian state association and changed to the new structure. Potential for new local associations checked lmanzor is at the head of the association, which has 000 helpers in Thuringia and Saxony, including 00 officials in Thuringia. The local associations are spread across the country, but the technical relief organization is not represented nationwide. lmanzor names the district of Greiz, parts of the Saale-Orla district, Jena and Weimar as examples. Neighboring local associations help, but they have to cover long distances, especially in East Thuringia. The THW is aiming for there to be at least one local association in each district after the regional reform. That is why the state representative set up a project group to investigate where further local associations can establish themselves. As a prerequisite, lmanzor states that there is a sufficiently large potential to help.

When searching, the top principle applies that he does not want to poach any helpers from other organizations, assures the THW boss. The influx is very different in the regions. A study aims to show why some local chapters gain help while others lose. In some cases, there are difficulties in staffing the technical train with regularly trained personnel. Increase is necessary in Suhl and Heiligenstadt, among other places. Preparing for terrorism scenarios The Technical Relief Organization in Thuringia Gera local branch office / local branch office for the state commissioner in ltenburg That is why the THW wants to get more involved in online advertising and establish its own career website to address the young target group. Lmanzor sees exciting tasks that deviate from the previous ones awaiting the THW. The relief organization wants to prepare much more for digital dangers, but also terrorism scenarios. In addition, storms and local heavy rain have increased in recent years. The technical relief organization will have to change significantly along with society. We will experience a much more colorful THW, says the state representative. This applies through a higher proportion of women, but also through targeted advertising to senior citizens. lmanzor sees good opportunities to integrate refugees. The prerequisite is that they have mastered the German language and have the prospect of staying. Refugee aid was also one of the tasks that THW managed together with other organizations. The helpers quickly redesigned gymnasiums into facilities and took care of the power supply, for example. At the ceremony today, lmanzor will give wishes to Federal Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière (CDU). Some of our vehicles are older than the helpers who operate them. The renewal of the fleet of 0 vehicles could not be carried out of the annual deed of six million uros for the two federal states. A federal program could help to bring the equipment up to date.

One cannot say that this man with the gray beard has no stamina. Now Marioano Rajoy has even won the new parliamentary elections in Spain. By Ralph Schulze Madrid. Spain's conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, the surprising winner of the Spanish parliamentary elections, survived corruption scandals, government crises and intrigues within the party. Even a helicopter accident in 00, in which the helicopter in which the then opposition leader Rajoy was sitting crashed shortly after take-off. I will never give up, Rajoy promised his supporters before the latest surprise victory at the Mariano Rajoy Spain's most unpopular election winner urns. Election researchers had predicted that his time in power was probably over and that the left opposition parties, the Podemos protest movement and the socialists, could overtake him. In addition, surveys had shown that the conservative, who has ruled Spain since 0, is the most unpopular prime minister in history. But the survivor Rajoy countered: I will keep fighting. The seemingly hopeless fight was worth it from his point of view. The -year-old political warrior, who had already been declared dead, was the only one who had reason to cheer after the fateful decision in Spain. r was able to break the political blockade in Spain at the re-election. Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy waves to his supporters. Photo: Phil Noble / Reuters should even build up the strength of his conservative People's Party again. Although Rajoy did not receive an absolute majority, he can at least hope for a minority government in the face of a weakened and divided opposition. Perseverance slogans mark his path Persistence slogans repeatedly marked the stony path of Rajoy's life, who made his way from land registry clerk in the province to head of government. Life consists of withstanding, wrote the conservative party leader Rajoy via a short cell phone message to his confidante and treasurer Luis Bárcenas, when investigators were on his back for corruption and illegal party financing. And: Luis, be strong. These encouragement backfired, of course. Apparently Rajoy wanted to urge his longtime companion not to divulge anything. But Bárcenas did not stand still and gave the investigators documents on black party coffers that were filled by industrialists. And about thick envelopes of money that are said to have been given to Rajoy and other high-ranking politicians. Here too, Rajoy showed a willingness to take: at first he said nothing. Then, when the pressure became unbearable, he declared: This is all wrong. r will not resign. While several investigative reports state that features of a criminal organization have been discovered in Rajoy's People's Party. Mainly because of these corruption allegations, no Spanish opposition party wants to form a coalition with Rajoy after the election. Not even the small, liberal-bourgeois party Ciudadanos, which is ideologically closest to the conservative. However, because he needs a majority in parliament that he has not yet had, Rajoy is now trying at least to conclude a standstill pact with the socialists, the largest opposition party in the country. This could provide that the socialists abstain from the prime ministerial election in parliament, so help a minority cabinet Rajoy in the mt. This would finally end the months-long political deadlock.

The problem with studying service management is that the practice differs significantly. A construction site is different from a car dealership. The latter plays a bigger role in education. If there had been a craftsman management degree two years ago, I would certainly have chosen this, says the young woman. The young people are deployed with us in the areas for which they show interest and talent. That can be in marketing, bookkeeping or accounting, says Michael Fuhlrott from Krieger + Schramm. Most of the time, this crystallizes out during your studies. We see an advantage in the high proportion of practical work. The students are usually three months with us and three months in B. And after graduation, the chances of being taken on are good.

Thuringians had to dig deeper into their pockets in June than they did a year ago when they bought alcoholic beverages or tobacco products. According to the first preliminary calculations by the Thuringian State Office for Statistics, the prices for this were three percent above those of the previous year. According to statisticians, prices in the education system and for seasonal foods have also risen within the year. The Thuringians had to pay more than a year ago for a visit to a hotel or hostel as well as for a visit to a restaurant and some other services.

The annual inflation rate rose accordingly from 0. percent to 0. percent, but is still well below the in-percent mark. According to the data from the state statisticians, this is primarily due to the energy prices that are below the previous year's level. Although they increased in June compared to May, they were still significantly below the previous year's values. Heating oil, for example, rose by more than five percent in June Commentary Studies and Practice By Wolf-Dieter Bose More practice during your studies! This requirement is not new. But it is popping up more and more frequently from both students and companies. They urgently need suitable specialists.

One can only hope that the companies make ample use of the new offer. compared to the prices in May, despite this, the prices for household energy are still more than four percent below the level in June last year. The Thuringians at the petrol stations offer a similar picture. Within a month, the prices at the petrol pumps climbed by more than one percent in June, but they are still almost nine percent below the previous year's level. Vacation time is known to be travel time, which is why the prices for package tours have increased. The Thuringians can save on clothing and shoes for their holiday suitcase, thanks to the first summer discounts in retail, prices for clothing and shoes have fallen.

5 Ostthüringer Zeitung page Economy & Consumers OCWI Saturday ,. July 0 Broadband: Funding increased The federal program, with which 0 megabits should be possible across the board, receives. Billion uros more. Berlin. The federal government is significantly increasing funding for the expansion of the high-speed Internet throughout Germany. A total of four billion uros are now available for better connections to undersupplied regions, which is billions more than before, as Infrastructure Minister Lexander Dobrindt (CSU) announced on Friday. These are additional budget funds. The government wants to achieve transmission speeds of 0 megabits per second across the board by 0, which is currently available for almost 0 percent of households. Dobrindt had started the billion euro program to support municipalities and districts last year. Projects can be subsidized with up to millions of uro each. Municipalities can also have planning and consulting costs subsidized. The main aim is to stimulate the broadband expansion in rural areas, which is otherwise not very lucrative for telecommunications companies. dpa Telefónicasenkt roaming fee Munich.

Von Kerstin Münstermann and Knut Pries Obi bosses remain silent after a union protest Verdi fears that the works council will be weakened and therefore wants to take a nationwide front against the industry leader. By Fabian Klaus Sömmerda. Nothing stirs at the corporate headquarters in Wermelskirchen. This week, the industry giant Obi received several questions on a specific topic, including one from this newspaper from Monday that went unanswered until yesterday. What are Obi's co-determination rights of his employees worth? Trade unionists have a clear opinion on this: nothing. On Tuesday, Verdi called for a protest in Sömmerda. Bernhard Groening, Chairman of the General Works Council, works there. The market was officially sold yesterday. And Groening would de facto no longer be Obi's works council. A similar game in ugsburg: the deputy chairwoman, Gertrud Wagner, works there. The market should have been closed since yesterday. After the employees wanted to obtain an injunction against the closure, they were allowed to go back to the market today, says the Verdi district manager from Thuringia, Corinna Hersel. Trade unions repeatedly go to court Brexit could cost Germany two billion euros Brussels. In Germany, people get used to the idea that Brexit is coming and discuss the consequences for German taxpayers. Bavaria's Finance Minister Markus Söder (CSU), for example, wants to make up for a possible loss of income through savings in the inflated U budget. The previous British contributions should not only be passed on to Germany and the other net contributing countries, he says. The Institute of the German Economy in Cologne (IW) has now tried to bring a little more clarity into the debate. In a study available to this editorial team, IW researcher Berthold Busch examined the U budget for the years 00 to 0 to see which countries transfer how much money to the U fund and how much money they receive from this fund. From this it can be deduced what happens when Great Britain is no longer there. The result: If Brexit comes, Germany would have to pay an annual average of just under two billion uros more into the U budget. The Federal Republic of Germany is already transferring the largest sum to Brussels by far. In a bad mood at Deutsche Bank The bank's logo above the entrance to a branch in Frankfurt / Main. Photo: Frank Rumpenhorst, dpa At the beginning of the week, numerous union representatives from Thuringia expressed their displeasure that the hardware store giant Obi is selling the market in Sömmerda. Since yesterday it belongs to a franchisee. Photo: Fabian Klaus Year 0, the last year that the IW study takes into account, it was more than billion uro. France followed in second place with billion euros. Great Britain and the Netherlands were just behind with a good six billion uros, respectively. Overall, the ten net contributors were compared to states that received more money from Brussels than they transferred. The federal government does not yet see any cause for concern. The states in Eastern Europe in particular benefit from the redistribution in the U budget.Poland got around. Billion uro more back from the U than the country transferred to Brussels, Hungary sees above all the danger that the top management with their strategy will make the employees no longer dare to do it in the future, to demand their employee rights, as they might be of the opinion that the company bosses have the upper hand anyway. That is a very dangerous signal, says Hersel. The fact that the general works council has repeatedly tried courts in the past is due to the behavior of the management, says the union. They can understand that the top management is annoyed by constantly standing in court. But then you have to ask yourself why it happens all the time, she says. According to the trade unionists, it is very clear that if Obi were to move on the subject of collective bargaining, the problems with the workforce would be smaller. But there is only a categorical rejection. They don't even want to talk about a house collective agreement at the hardware store giant. Hersel's ugsburger colleague Thomas Gürlebeck finds an internal survey of the employees revealing how much losses and savings have left their mark on the situation of the employees. Worldwide, a total of 000 jobs are to be eliminated by 0. The company's share is on the downside. Frankfurt / Main. The ongoing crisis at Deutsche Bank is also making employees of Germany's largest financial institution increasingly noisy. A representative survey of the workforce paints a sobering picture of the mood in our bank, stated CEO John Cryan and HR director Karl von Rohr in a message published on Friday. Compared to the previous year, even fewer of you feel connected to Deutsche Bank and just under half of you are proud to hold for this bank billions of euros and Romania billions of euros. In the Baltic states, U transfers account for up to eleven percent of the annual state budget. This shows the solidarity of the Union, which decisively supports poorer members in their development, says IW economist Busch. How much money Germany has to transfer to Brussels after a Brexit will ultimately depend on the negotiations between the states. In any case, Federal Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) has not yet calculated any extra costs in the federal budget for next year. Great Britain will almost certainly still be a U-member and pay its contribution, it is said in government circles. Everything else is reading coffee grounds. work. This is a finding that we cannot be satisfied with. This May, the bank had called on 0 percent of its approximately 000 employees worldwide across all departments without the subsidiary Postbank to give their opinion. According to a spokeswoman, roughly more than half of this sample gave feedback. 000 jobs will be cut in Germany s we are aware that the restructuring and the associated job cuts are causing a lot of unrest and uncertainty, admit Cryan and von Rohr. It has been decided to close branches across Germany; almost 000 full-time positions in Germany will be eliminated. There were still clear words about the deletion of around 000 even at the end of this week. Obi has got us now and can't get rid of us, he says, referring to the union plans. Nationwide, actions are intended to draw attention to the situation of employees and, above all, to show clearly that Obi is trying to get rid of the general works council or its management. The fact that the Obi top, the DIY chain belongs to the Tengelmann Group, did not publicly express itself until yesterday, prompts Gürlebeck to make this assessment: This shows how unprofessional the industry leader is. However, the employees are still waiting in vain for a report on the situation. In Obi's press portal, where current reports are published, nothing can be found. The last report published there is dated August 0. Further positions in other areas in Germany are still being negotiated. Worldwide, the bank wants to cut a total of 000 jobs by the end of the day. For 0, Deutsche Bank posted the highest loss in its company's history at. Billion uros, and the share has been on the downside for months. Cryan put the workforce in the mood for the difficult times that remain: the next few months will not be easy either. Thirds of the colleagues surveyed complain that complex processes, long decision-making paths or a lack of cooperation still prevent them from doing their job well. The management is pleased that, after the many scandals in the past, employees are seeing progress on the subject of corporate culture. dpa ine British flag hangs in front of the DAX display board in the trading room of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Often it was just annoying. But some could claim damages. Anyone who has actually suffered damage as a result of the Vodafone network failure can also assert this under civil law. Before taking legal steps, however, you should first seek a conversation with the company and describe the facts in detail, advises Carola Ibrecht from the Federation of German Consumer Organizations. According to the lawyer, relevant cases of damage are conceivable: the self-employed who missed an order without the Internet, the private person who could not control their bids or bids at bay, or someone who was unable to get an important phone call on a contractual matter. You have to leave the church in the village, but you can limit your life. The consumer advocate does not consider claims just because someone could not google for a few hours to be promising. Vodafone itself does not guarantee 100 percent availability of the services, but only promises at least. Percent in the annual average in the terms and conditions. Whether such a clause would stand in court is another question, says Ibrecht. The Internet and telephone disruptions in the Vodafone cable network that occurred on Thursday affected up to. Million customers nationwide. According to the company, a problem in the computer network in Frankfurt am Main and Berlin was to blame. dpa The transition to secondary school is almost as drastic for children as inschulung. The start does not always go smoothly. By nnette Meinke-Carstanjen New classmates, stricter teachers, more difficult tasks: Switching from elementary to secondary school is even more exciting for some families than initial schooling. Parents can positively support the start of the new phase. Because one thing is clear: failure in the new school would have a massive impact on the children. That should of course be avoided, explains Klaus Seifried, head of the school psychology and inclusion education advice center in Berlin's Tempelhof-Schöneberg district. Even before the first day of class, it is good to familiarize yourself with the school's culture. How it works is shown, for example, by an open house or how user-friendly the website is. Is there information about the school profile, dates, activities or changes to the timetable? Parenting questions that are frequently asked may already be discussed and answered here. Katrin Höhmann, professor at the Ludwigsburg University of Education, knows that the quality of a school can be recognized by the way it gives orientation to parents and pupils from the start. Contact with the teachers is becoming sparse. The first parenting evening also helps. Parents can ask questions there. Which books and which material do the children need now? Are you planning a class trip? Are there any projects in the classroom? What extracurricular events are on the program? How to go When the door slams and the key is inside, the need is great. The consumer advice center Thuringia warns of dubious offers. There are cases in which the police have to arbitrate. From Simone. Mayer direct banks offer the cheapest current accounts. When choosing a direct bank, you should also ask about the possibility of free cash withdrawals. Photo: Tobias Kleinschmidt, dpa New beginning after elementary school: This is how parents could help New classmates, new teachers, new subjects: With the transition to regular school or high school, a new chapter in life begins. The children are required to be more independent. Photo: Martin Schutt, dpa do the teachers deal with conflicts? Do you want to be called or do you prefer to receive emails? Parents should insist on getting to know all teachers, class teachers and subject teachers as soon as possible, says Höhmann. This creates clarity at an early stage and can thus lead to good cooperation. Basically, the contact with the teachers in secondary school is no longer as intensive as in elementary school. You have to accept that and be prepared for it, says Seifried. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that almost every subject is taught by different teachers. On the other hand, the children are of course also getting older and more independent. If there is school lunch at lunchtime, parents can inform themselves about it in advance and do not pay the overpriced locksmith. Locksmiths who advertise with place names are not necessarily from the specified location. That means you pay enormous sums of money for their journey. The consumer advice center of Thuringia points this out. For comparison: the cost of one minute of work could amount to between 00 and 00 uro, while in cities like rfurt the usual local price for a simple door opening during the day is 0 uro. Long journeys are a warning sign. Consumers should not pay such excessive sums and should not sign anything unchecked. If you are put under pressure to pay or if the door is even locked again, you can call the police because that is. For simple account management, banks often charge heavy fees. Some houses advertise with free checking accounts. But the costs of the overdraft facility or the fees for withdrawing money or the credit card are often hidden. Finanztip magazine examined 0 institutes. Study the school canteen menu. Vegetables daily, fish once a week, little meat or sausage: when these three criteria are present, things can look pretty good, says Petra mbrosius, head of the studio for nutritional advice in Wiesbaden. The nutritionist advises comparing the menu with the quality standards of the German Society for Nutrition (DG). The provisions that parents give from home should be balanced and contain protein, carbohydrates and fats. Whole grain bread is better than white bread and lean toppings instead of fat sausage, explains mbrosius. A piece of vegetables, natural yoghurt and water or unsweetened tea as a drink are suitable as a fresh supplement. possibly coercion and punishable. Consumer advocate Dirk Weinsheimer advises agreeing a fixed price beforehand. If the locksmith does not agree, you should look for someone else. Indications of dubious bids are a lack of price information on the phone, excessive flat-rate fees and a long journey for the craftsman, although according to its own advertising, the company is supposed to come from the place of the caller. Another problem is that it is often not possible to see directly where the craftsman is coming from. According to figures from the Deutsche Bundesbank, there are more than 00 million current accounts across Germany. Their owners often have to shell out high fees. That doesn't have to be the case despite the low interest rate environment. Some banks still offer the account for free. The non-profit consumer portal Finanztip has therefore taken a close look at the conditions of different providers. The result: Direct banks in particular score with free account management. However, there are also huge differences here, for example in the amount of overdraft interest. Consumers should pay attention to the fees with a supposedly free checking account. Because many banks advertise their offer as a free current account, but only mean the account management. In addition, there are some fees, for example for the credit card, or for payments in foreign currencies, says Josefine Lietzau from Finanztip. A question of type Direct banks currently offer the best conditions. Finanztip recommends the current accounts of the DB-Bank, the Deutsche Kreditbank DKB, the Consorsbank and the Comdirect. lle offer Then the first days of class take their course, parents should above all keep calm, ask questions and listen but not bother. The children are in a new situation and need support, says Seifried. Do not restrict self-employment Some companies advertise on the Internet with false place names. Therefore, one should look at the imprint of the website or look up in business directories. also give customers a free credit card. Which of the recommended accounts is suitable for whom, however, is also a question of type. Globetrotters are in good hands with DB Bank. Because whoever travels often and pays in a currency other than uro in us, benefits from the low foreign currency fees of. Percent, says Lietzau. Lietzau advises customers who frequently slip into the overdraft facility to use the DKB account. The bank demands the lowest overdraft interest among the recommendations at. Percent. m best online ll providers recommended by Finanztip do not operate cost-intensive branch business. That is why it is usually not possible to pay in cash directly from these banks. Who This also applies to time management and work organization. The expert advises that there be compulsory homework times and that you control them to a reasonable extent, but not restrict your independence. You are also allowed to ask how things are going with your classmates and teachers.Does the child feel noticed by the teachers? What about the seating arrangements? Do the table neighbors fit? And how is the resistance to the table? Or does the child want to invite someone else to their home? Sometimes the children don't answer right away, but maybe over bendbrot, says Seifried. At best, the children already know a few classmates from the old class. That can help support each other. Celebrating the transition from one school to the other, as with inschulung, is probably rather unusual. Unfortunately, as the experts say. I think it's good to mark transitions and make them visible, be it in the form of a school or family celebration, says Höhmann. A party at school is especially nice because the children can then get to know new classmates right away. dpa locksmith at work. Photo: Christin Scheide It is also important to know that hits that are displayed at the top of the search engine are often advertisements. You can find small corresponding markings. dpa still needs this service, for which the Comdirect is a good alternative. Bank customers can deposit money into Commerzbank branches three times a year free of charge. In return, however, the overdraft rate is comparatively high, and the levy rules are complicated, says Lietzau. Withdraw free of charge Even without branches, you can easily withdraw money from the banks recommended by Finanztip. The banks are either members of a vending machine network, and their customers can use the C-card to get cash free of charge from its member banks. Or you can withdraw money by credit card, which is possible at most ATMs. Fox tapeworm dangerous to humans Pets that roam outside can introduce the fox tapeworm and even transmit it to their owners. Regular worming is important. Cats and dogs can easily bring fox tapeworms into their homes. To prevent this, owners should dewormer their animal regularly or have its faeces checked every three months. This is especially true if the pets have regular contact with rodents or are frequently in areas with foxes. Veterinarian Tina Hölscher from the organization ktion Tier points this out. If you don't heed this, you can infect yourself with the fox tapeworm. The route of infection is as follows: Foxes excrete tapeworm buckets with their feces. These are in turn eaten by mice. If a mouse then becomes a victim of a cat or a dog, the rodent infects the pet. When cuddling and cuddling with the four-legged friend, people can then easily become infected with the worm eggs. The first symptoms of an infestation sometimes only appear years after the infection. It usually starts with pain or pressure in the upper abdomen. Later on there is fatigue and weight loss. If left untreated, the infection is fatal. Therefore it is urgent to consult a doctor. dpa First-aid kit to protect against heat In principle, all medicines belong in the first-aid kit that you also have in your medicine cabinet. It is also best to pack remedies for common travel ailments such as traveler's diarrhea or nausea. The Federal Association of German Potheker Associations points this out. In addition, holidaymakers should make sure that the medicines are not stored too warm in the car, for example they can be placed under the front seat. It doesn't get that hot there. Anyone who transports the medication in a cooler bag should ensure that they do not come into direct contact with the cooling element. It's best to wrap it in a towel. dpa Secure hold for garden ladder The higher you climb a garden ladder, the more the st, on which it is based, gives way. The angle gets smaller and smaller, at some point the ladder slips and falls. And ladder feet with plastic caps have less grip, especially in the grass. The Safe House in Hamburg therefore recommends using so-called ladder tips when working on open or overgrown floors. These are red thorns on the underside of the ladder rails that are rammed into the garden soil. Floor traverses compensate for unevenness; these are supports at the lower end of the ladder. Depending on the model, it is possible to bridge height differences of up to 0 centimeters. dpa deposit voucher valid for up to three years Forgot to redeem the voucher for the bottle deposit at the cash register?
