Eight weeks ago, when the show "circles", which he curated with numerous contemporary exhibits, the bamberg-born artist had announced this to galleries in berlin and beijing.

The background to this was, on the one hand, initial wishes that had been voiced for the exhibit by wang shugang to remain, and on the other hand, the damage that had been caused when individual figures from the eight-part group were removed.

search for the child murderer: dna mass test has begun

Who the murderer of little nicky verstappen is, dutch police still don’t know almost 20 years after the crime. Now they are making a new attempt to find him in the area on the border with germany, not far from aachen.

In landgraaf, the netherlands, a pending dna mass test began this saturday, a police spokeswoman confirmed. 21,500 people between the ages of 18 and 75 are called upon to voluntarily provide a DNA sample.

The tests are expected to run until mid march. The samples are matched with the DNA trace of an unknown man at the child’s body.

Passing asteroid could be very valuable

If only ten percent of its mass consisted of valuable raw materials such as iron and nickel, these would already be worth 130 billion dollars at current market prices, the company deep space industries reported.

Treasure five percent of the asteroid could be degradable water. This could be broken down into hydrogen and oxygen to produce rocket fuel, according to the company. The hydrogen could also be combined with carbon that may be present on the asteroid to produce methane, which could also be used for fuel. In total, the estimated value of the degradable water in the all is around 65 billion dollars.

Because the asteroid schrag will fly past the earth, however, it will cost too much energy to get to the raw materials and water, according to experts. But things could be different for other asteroids in the future. Deep space industries, a private company based in the u.S. State of virginia, plans to mine valuable raw materials on asteroids in the future – but according to its own statements, not before 2020.

Number of trauma-related illnesses among soldiers remains high

Number of trauma-related illnesses among soldiers remains high

In 2018, 182 soldiers were newly diagnosed with deployment-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – twelve more than in 2017, as reported by the "neue osnabrucker zeitung" with reference to the sanitary service of the german armed forces.

The number of other deployment-related injuries, such as depression, continued to fall slightly, according to the sanitary service. In total, 279 soldiers were diagnosed with a deployment-related psychiatric illness last year – roughly the same number of new cases as in 2017, when 274 were diagnosed. Actual illnesses may be higher, because only cases treated in federal military facilities are paid for.

Nato’s combat mission in afghanistan ended in 2014. The german armed forces are only in the country for training and advising the afghan fighting forces. A defense ministry spokesman told the newspaper that in many cases, victims do not "take advantage of one of our many opportunities to help" until years after the event has occurred.

Mainstockheimer feel burdened

In a letter to the district administration, mainstockheim mayor karl-dieter fuchs (FBB) read out at the town council meeting on thursday that training for a larger number of riders should be made possible through longer training times. "We were already dissatisfied in the past", fuchs complained that the conditions imposed in 1987 and 2000 were rarely complied with. To his knowledge, the training was being conducted on runway numbers on which, according to records, there was no permit. It also says quiet on sundays and public holidays and only allows vehicles with a road permit. Instead of the permitted five, up to twelve vehicles are on the road at the same time, without a street permit.
Fuchs continued to raise considerable doubts about the alarm report, because significantly lowered alarm levels had to apply to the ebracher hof – where there is a home for senior citizens.

Heavy reproaches against the landratsamt came from ingolf klein (CSU). He criticized the fact that the authority does not monitor the issued permit at all and thus does not show any duty of care towards the citizen.

Burger sees in the plant a black building, since the given values and times are not kept, so had been trained on easter monday obviously. The burgers reserve the right to call the police in the event of further incidents. Fuchs now wants to work with the administration on a formulation to reject an expansion in principle and to demand compliance with the existing requirements.
