Perfect bayerncup

Perfect bayerncup

Those who wondered on sunday morning why runners were running through the forest on and off the trails in callenberg forest despite the sambafestival: the orienteering runners were guests. TV coburg-neuses organized the fifth competition for the bavarian ranking, the bayern-cup – a complete success.
Overall leader thomas scheler was relieved and satisfied that everything went smoothly. The running terrain in the callenberg forest, which was acquired from the "herzoglich sachsen-coburg und gotha'schen revierverwaltung callenberg" thanks to good cooperation, the course could be used, had been remapped only last year. Because the vegetation is constantly changing and there is a lot of work going on in the forest, scheler constantly updated the map.
This is the only way for the competitors to make the optimal choice of route. Because it was a middle-distance race, the distances ranged from two to five kilometers as the crow flies, depending on the category, and there were also 30 to 200 meters of elevation. Depending on their age, the youngest was ten years old, the oldest 83 years old, the participants needed between 15 and 40 minutes on sunday.
Before the run, the runners only know the course data and a description of the running area. Only at the moment of the start, each participant receives his running map with the route, and from this moment, the orientation points must be run to in order. How, that is up to him. But it is best to read the map while running in order to lose little time.
At 10 a.M. Sharp, the 150 participants were sent from the start at the trimm dich path into the running terrain at a starting interval of two minutes. The finish was at the goldbergsee, central competition place was the clubhouse of the TV coburg-neuses.
Course setter jan schmidt received a lot of praise for the interestingly laid out courses. He implemented the specifications for a middle distance perfectly: short and long route choices alternated, requiring more concentration than route sections of equal length. The track "turned the course was also a lot, so you had to constantly orientate yourself in a new direction of the sky.
The supposed home advantage, which is offered to the participating runners of the organizer or those from the region, did not really come into play. On the one hand, because of course many runners of the TV coburg-neuses were in action as helpers. On the other hand, the runners from neuses have for a long time refrained from training in the running area for reasons of fairness.
The men's main class was one of the closest: only four seconds separated 1st and 2nd place in the end. Winner theodor yordanov from OC munich was able to catch ricardo casanova from OLG regensburg, who is currently in top form, only shortly before the end and win the race for himself.
In this class, sebastian vetter (6th place), uwe weid (8th place) and alexander tippelt from TV coburg-ketschendorf (11th place) started for TV coburg-neuses.

Strong young runners

Among the young runners of the TV coburg-neuses only antonia jacobi, who started in the women's race up to 14 years of age, could present herself in the best way. "A victory was possible, she was only nine seconds behind the winner from regensburg, katharina kraus, after 18:26 minutes.
Anton tatzel, who started in the men's race up to 14 years of age, made a crucial mistake at the beginning, which cost him at least a place on the podium. For him it became place 4.
The bavarian sprint championships took place the day before in the old town of zeil am main. Dieter oechler won the class H65, angelika weid the D65 (both TV coburg-neuses). Thomas scheler, competing in the men's 55+ class, was still in the lead after the first round. After a few inattentions in the second run he had to be content with bronze.
Gabi dotsch also won bronze in the D55 class. 44 seconds behind the bronze medal, antonia jacobi finished in 4th place in the D14 school girls class.

Power struggle in venezuela: maduro wants to dissolve parliament

Power struggle in venezuela: maduro wants to dissolve parliament

In the power struggle in venezuela that has been going on for months, president nicolas maduro apparently wants to break up the opposition-controlled parliament.

On monday, the constitutional assembly, which is loyal to the government, set up a commission to determine the date for the parliamentary elections. "If in the deliberations we come to the conclusion that the elections must be held this year because the national assembly no longer exists, we will do it that way," said the president of the constituent assembly and vice president of the socialist party, diosdado cabello, according to a report in the newspaper "el nacional".

Regular, the next parliamentary elections will be held at the end of next year. After president maduro has occupied almost all state institutions in venezuela with his henchmen, the national assembly is the last bastion of the government opponents.

Club has new youth director

club has new youth director

The chairman of the "steinachtal" guardianship association hassenberg, matthias jakel, took the opportunity to catch up with the honors of erwin reichstatter and matthias engel, who were both honored for 25 years of membership. Both had been prevented from attending the konigsessen last november. After twelve years, simone jakel resigned as youth leader, but she will remain with the association as secretary. The new youth leader of the schutzenverein is 18 year old tobias geiger. "Actually, it was not a serious proposal of mine to become the youth leader of our guardian association. But since no one else has been found for the position, and I can always count on simone's help, I have decided to do it anyway", said tobias geiger. The 18-year-old sees it as a challenge to suddenly become a person of respect for his friends, and he now has to deal with a whole host of new tasks: "I'm responsible for running the youth training on fridays, and I also have to organize the registrations and trips of the youth squad to all the competitions."
The re-elected chairman matthias jakel said: "in the next few years we have to think about whether the schutzenfest can be continued in its current form. We are the only association in hassenberg that still organizes a parade through the village every year. Of course, we always need a lot of helpers to organize such a festival. In the near future we will also have to introduce the youth to our tasks."

Zuckerberg’s sister now works for google

Zuckerberg's sister now works for google

The search engine leader announced on tuesday that it had taken over the online advertising company wildfire – which employs arielle zuckerberg, of all people.

"Congratulations wildfire! There are now officially more zuckerberg family members working for google than for facebook," marks’ older sister randi zuckerberg commented on the coup on the short message service twitter. She gave her contribution the keyword "awkward". But she wasn’t entirely serious: she added a winking smiley to her tweet. Which relatives still work at google, love them openly.

Randi zuckerberg is the best known of the zuckerberg sisters. She was in charge of marketing for facebook until last year, when she went freelance. The younger arielle, on the other hand, decided to pursue a career outside of facebook: according to the self-description in her blog, she works as a junior product manager at wildfire.
