Hundreds at the new georgenritt

Hundreds at the new georgenritt

"We will definitely come back next year!" Christine leicht from bischberg really gets into the black. For this first st. Georgenritt in baunach came almost with the whole family: children, dogs, horses, what had room in car and horse trailer. From the french day they had learned of the event and promptly registered and on sunday when looking for parking first a bit lost. No problem "everyone was totally helpful and friendly". The bischberger is full of praise for the premiere event of the pferdefreunde franken association. "This is one of the most beautiful georgenritt far and wide."
Of a good 25 riders who had come with their steeds from all over the region to the northern district, association chairwoman michaela hohlstein reports happily. The association sees this as a confirmation and for the first ride as a pleasing number of participants. Just as many pet owners took part with their dogs and also the population from baunach and the surrounding area did not want to miss the opportunity to come up to the "love cross" to pull.
A total of several hundred people joined the long procession, estimates the association’s chairwoman.

As planned, many riders of different styles – western, english – turned up and got talking to each other on the ride to the cross. "A western rider from schlusselfeld even wanted to let me on his horse", christine remarks, slightly impressed. She was impressed by the beautiful devotion of pastoral advisor birgit soffler, who explained the ecclesiastical background of the ride in a child-friendly way – a reverence to the patron saint of horsemen and horses, st. George. The songs – played by the baunach town band – were deliberately chosen to be joyful, michaela hohlstein makes it clear.

She has already been asked whether this was really a catholic devotion. Was she, she could always assure the questioners. After the prayer service, the worshippers received the church’s blessing, as did the four-legged friends – dogs and horses.
Due to the good response, the organizers have decided to hold the event again next year, presumably on the 28th. April (the sunday after the name day of the patron saint) in baunach the second st. Georgenritt will give.

Schengen: states want border controls on their own

Schengen: states want border controls on their own

EU interior ministers agreed in principle on a corresponding reform of the schengen area of freedom of travel on thursday in luxembourg.

This will earn them a severe scolding from the EU commission and the european parliament, which must give its approval. Both demand joint decisions at the european level and threaten legal action before the european court of justice (eugh) if parliament is excluded – as planned by the ministers – from reviewing whether schengenlanders also comply with the required standards.

According to the ministers, schengen-landers should be allowed to close their borders again for more reasons and longer than before. A new "emergency clause" takes effect when large numbers of illegal immigrants enter the eu. The prerequisite was that a state – for example, greece – could no longer protect its borders despite EU aid and that the internal security of other states was "massively threatened.". Countries were then allowed to guard the borders again for two years. So far, controls of 30 days are only allowed for major events such as soccer matches and for 10 days after emergencies such as terrorist attacks. This should also be allowed in the future.

professional cyclist jakobsen apparently in danger of his life after a crash

The images of the fall alone make people fear the worst. Dutch professional cyclist fabio jakobsen crashed directly into the barriers at high speed during the finish sprint of the tour of poland and remained lying motionless.

Eu states agree on new sanctioning instrument

Human rights violations in countries such as china, russia or saudi arabia will be much easier for the european union to sanction in the future.

Representatives of the member states agreed on a corresponding regulation on wednesday evening in brussels, as EU diplomats confirmed to the german press agency. It has been negotiated in recent weeks under the current german EU presidency and is to be officially agreed at a meeting of eu ministers next monday.

The new regulation will reportedly make it possible to freeze assets of actors who commit or profit from serious human rights violations. In addition, entry bans are to be imposed on individuals.

Russia condemned for dragging its feet on katyn reappraisal

Russia condemned for dragging its feet on katyn reappraisal

The russian state is reluctant to acknowledge the reality of the murder of thousands of poles by the soviet secret service, the prosecution judges criticized. The court did not order a complete re-investigation of the events of 1940. There was no trial in strasbourg about compensation for the polish prisoners.

Lawsuits were filed by victims of the massacre, including army and police officers, an army doctor and a school principal. The ancestors were shot by soviet units in katyn and other places after the invasion of poland by soviet troops in april and may 1940, together with about 22,000 poles. More than 4,000 bodies buried in mass graves in katyn forest near smolensk. Only after the end of the soviet union the kremlin admitted its own guilt. According to the judges, the process of coming to terms with the crime in the interests of the victims is still making little progress in russia. "The reaction of the authorities to the requests of most of the 15 complainants to find out the truth about the death of their loved ones was tantamount to inhumane treatment," the verdict read.

The russian authorities should have responded "in a humane and compassionate manner to the suffering and distress of the grieving relatives," the judges ruled. "Striking" they found the judiciary’s "apparent reluctance to acknowledge the reality of the massacre".

Series of murders in cyprus: seventh body found

series of murders in cyprus: seventh body found

The seventh victim of a serial killer has been discovered dead in cyprus – the little girl was only six years old. Police suspect it is the last victim. Seven crimes were confessed to the police by a 35-year-old captain of the cypriot national guard.

The search for bodies took almost two months. Divers discovered the remains of the six-year-old in a dredging lake on wednesday. It had been sunk there in a suitcase weighted down with concrete. "Light a candle," radioed the diver to his colleague on the shore of the quarry pond at midday on wednesday. "I do – but why?" – "for the child. I hold it in my arms, eduard. I hold it in my arms, I tell you."The touching dialogue of the diving experts, who have been searching for weeks for the last missing body and have now found the girl, deeply affects many cypriots. The series of murders is unprecedented for the mediterranean island.

Since 2016, the alleged perpetrator has allegedly been killing undetected – and that is also due to the inactivity of the cypriot authorities, many criticize. The victims are five domestic helpers from asia and romania, two of whom had daughters aged six and eight respectively.

European parliament to reform struggling co2 trade

european parliament to reform struggling co2 trade

This is to drive up the price and thus make the emission of CO2 (carbon dioxide), which is harmful to the climate, more expensive. The reform still needs the yes of the EU member states.

The industry in the EU must submit rights for the emission of CO2, the companies can trade with each other with it. Due to the low price of currently four euros per ton of carbon dioxide, there is a lack of incentives for climate-friendly investments. The EU commission had once set a target of 30 euros – but the economic downturn of recent years, among other things, has put pressure on demand and price.

That’s why the parliament now wants to allow the eu commission to withhold 900 million CO2 certificates (so-called "backloading"). By way of comparison, the eu commission will put a total of 3.5 billion of these certificates on the market between 2013 and 2015. Temporarily withheld CO2 rights to be released before the end of the decade. The initiator of the reform proposal, climate commissioner connie hedegaard, was relieved.
