Hamburg woman has world-beating nail polish collection

Hamburg woman has world-beating nail polish collection

A hamburger woman probably owns the world’s largest collection of nail polish. Exactly 11 027 small and coarse bottles were paid by two lawyers in the apartment of carolin gorra (39). The record institute for germany has therefore officially confirmed her world record.

The graduate in business administration collects paints from all over the world and in every color, shape and decoration. She spends about 100 to 200 euros a month for it. In her apartment, there are nail polish bottles as far as the eye can see.

Only a small part of the collection is also actively used by her. About ten percent of nail polish also ends up on their fingers. The 39-year-old prefers bright, eye-catching colors. "Red or discreet – that’s not my thing! The stark colors are the real attraction for me," said the native of pasewalk (mecklenburg-western pomerania) to the german press agency.

Sebastian hutzler likes the stress

FC wichsenstein is ranked 7th in kreisklasse 3 ER/PEG, sebastian hutzler has not yet been able to play this season due to injury. But it also gives the 23-year-old board member more time to plan for his club’s 50th anniversary.

Who played them?
Sebastian hutzler: pascal schupferling from schlaifhausen played with me. We were classmates in secondary school and are currently in a typing pool together. I am usually the loser.

You have been the board member of FC wichsenstein for four years. How does one get to this office at such a young age??
FC was looking for a board member four years ago, and at first no one was willing to do it. I’m a businessman by profession, so I thought that would be a good fit and that I could get into management. In the meantime, this has become a very pleasant hobby.

Contact point for parents

Contact point for parents

The two early learning centers – in the nikolausiedlung in kronach and in the aubenstelle im lehen in steinbach/wald – are an early learning concept initiated by lebenshilfe. This voluntary and free service is aimed at all parents who are concerned about their children's development and are looking for help.

The individual demand is aimed at children from birth until they start school. The services are financed by the district of upper franconia and the respective health insurance companies. "Many people certainly have an inaccurate or false idea of what the early warning office is supposed to do.

Often there is still the popular opinion that it is especially an institution for children with mental disabilities", explains the head of the early learning center, social pedagogue elisabeth nab. This is not the case, or has changed over time. Currently, between 150 and 200 children are cared for in kronach and steinbach/wald, especially those with developmental problems or delays. "Children with intellectual disabilities make up only the very smallest proportion of the total", according to elisabeth nab.

The language barrier is not an obstacle

The language barrier is not an obstacle

"You obey us, we obey you, if you are looking for friends, you will find them here." The 3b of the elementary school hemhofen buried their new classmates on monday with these song lyrics. They haven’t understood the text yet, but that’s probably only a matter of time. The ten- to twelve-year-olds are children of refugees who are now forming their own class at the hemhofen school.

Claudia rueb-mackrodt from rottenbach has taken on the task of teaching the children the german language in a small class of her own. The retired teacher, who wanted to volunteer in refugee care anyway, responded to an appeal for this position in hemhofen.

The pedagogue approached the matter with great enthusiasm and also worked with the refugee children for a week beforehand. However, still in the community accommodation in the former tennis hall. The children now sitting in front of her speak arabic, kurdish and azerbaijani.

Help offers can be strengthened in forchheim

help offers can be strengthened in forchheim

The cell phone is the communication tool par excellence. On the one hand. At the same time, it is more and more often the case that partnerships are in a state of crisis. The accusation: there is nothing more to do with the partner because he is constantly busy with the cell phone. The other then turns on the tv. Talks are hardly ever held anymore. "I would be happy to talk to you if you want to …. ", are often the accusations against the partner. Instead of constructive communication, further verbal attack and defense follow. Scenes like this are not infrequently described at the marriage counseling center in forchheim, which offers psychological counseling on marriage, partnership, family and life issues.

With pastoral counselor wolfram schmidt, the counseling center is again well staffed and the team, which also includes anna raab-stark and anna-maria welsch-bomba, can offer appointments within a short period of time.

It is not only young people who seek help at the counseling center. "The majority of those seeking help are in their late 30s to early 60s, mostly catholic, but this is because the district of forchheim is catholic, and most of those seeking help are married", says wolfram schmidt. Sometimes it’s older couples who are about to have their golden wedding anniversary and have been sent by the doctor, welsch-bomba adds. Individuals who have problems with their friends or children, people who are in mourning, depressives and often people who have self-esteem problems, welsch-bomba adds. So it always affects people who are in crisis. "It may be that the couples have drifted apart due to lack of contact. Some women feel left alone or people are in a transitional phase, for example when the children are grown up and move out or people retire," are often the accusations levelled at the state building department, describes schmidt. However, separation and divorce are often an issue and marriage counseling is a "last straw".

The next rough construction project

In mainleus, one major construction project follows the next: in addition to the construction of two multi-family residential buildings in hans-grimm-weg last week, work has also begun on another multi-million project: at hauptstrabe 68, mainleus entrepreneur arno friedrichs is also building two multi-family residential buildings.

Work on the foundations is already in full swing, explains project manager sebastian turk, looking toward the train station as he walks through the earthen realm. It is located directly opposite on the other side of the mainleus main street.

"You can’t live more centrally", schwarmt turk from the location of the houses. The company is 600 meters away as the crow flies, the train station and a bus stop are in front of the door, and the school, town hall and kindergarten are only a two-minute walk away.

District of forchheim: elevator installed in town hall to make it barrier-free

district of forchheim: elevator installed in town hall to make it barrier-free

At the effeltrich town council meeting, a burgher reminded the council of the climate resolution passed in july 2019 and requested information on the macceptances that have been made so far. In addition, a replacement of the defective windows in the dressing rooms of the gymnasium was considered.

Because of the corona decreases, the council and numerous burghers met again in the rough, distance-permitting school gymnasium. The reopening of the town hall in the meantime has also made it easier to prepare meetings for the administration. The town hall had been closed for the first two weeks of june for the installation of an elevator. Also the main server for all computers had to be switched off. The renovation work was part of the "bavaria barrier-free" program necessary: by 2023, all publicly accessible buildings in the free state are to be made barrier-free. The government has allocated funds for this purpose. Following a council decision, the elevator is now located in the left part of the main hall of the town hall. Currently, work is still being done on the deflation. By the end of july, the work is expected to be completed.

Second construction phase

However, in a second phase of construction, the council chamber must be moved downstairs for fire safety reasons. The decision on which of the present designs is to be realized is up to the municipal council and has yet to be made.

Highlight for the 10am

Highlight for the 10am

"All have passed, we can celebrate", principal wolfgang hoydem proudly proclaimed in the auditorium on thursday evening. In addition to the best in the class, hanna schmidt (weitramsdorf) with a final grade of 1.33 and victoria barreto sampaio-hein (untersiemau) and anika weib (weitramsdorf), each with a grade of 1.44, seven other graduates had an "A" before the comma. Schmidt was also the best M-school student in the entire coburg school district.
The good results were all the more remarkable because class teacher helen arnold fell ill for a long time before the graduation ceremonies. Principal and colleagues stepped into the breach, so that hoydem’s thanks also went to his colleagues. The rector advised the departing students "to remain curious, to courageously try out new things and to go new ways".
While hoydem emphasized the heterogeneity of the students ("a class couldn’t be more different from one another!"), arnold said this class was "the best class" they had ever taught. With the same goal in mind, everyone had pulled together and stuck together.

Some oddities

Nevertheless, the teacher looked back at some of the oddities in the 10am, such as the "everything notebook", from which she herself was to pick out the material to be evaluated. Never give up, never lose faith in yourself, that’s what arnold advised the now "mature young adults". At the same time, they should be grateful and give back gratitude. The teacher was proud that all of her students had passed the secondary school examinations.
"Do not hold it here nuchtern?", asked jokingly seblach’s mayor martin mittag, looking at the title of the invitation: "ten years of fabric – and still not high", was there – garnished with a hemp leaf – to read. In any case, the students had already achieved one highlight in their lives with their middle school diploma. And in addition, the "tools to fight against the coming hurdles get. Mittag advised the young people to go through life with open eyes and to meet others at eye level. His message: "you could achieve everything if you only wanted to!"

"Open ears and open coffers"

Class parent representative heike glaser-kohler attested to the mayors of the towns and communities belonging to the school association (ahorn, itzgrund, grobheirath, seblach, untersiemau, weitramsdorf) "always an open ear and heart, but also an open cash box" to have had. She compared the four years of the class together with a voyage on the high seas. Captain arnold has helped to form personalities from the students and has given them important values, such as camaraderie and respectful treatment. The fact that they left school with two diplomas was something the students could be justifiably proud of. Before they start the "logbook concluded, glaser-kohler wished the graduates "new teams and captains" as well as passing all storms and reefs, with the words: "you can do it!"

Spab learning for the serious case

Spab learning for the serious case

You are all sitting here not entirely voluntarily. "I am here because the first aid course is needed later for the driver's license", julia taschner confesses, while the teacher asks: "when is the stable lateral position necessary??" The schoolchildren laugh at first. Markus nagel looks patiently into the round. Larissa reports. "When someone is unconscious", says the 15-year-old from class 9a.
"Right", says markus nagel, who actually teaches math and physics at ebermannstadt high school. "Then why don't you show us how the stable lateral position works, larissa?!"
Some of the students are happy that they don't have to go to the mat. And maybe also a little bit, because the "normal" one lessons for her are not on the timetable today. The teacher has no problem with it. "The first aid course is supposed to be fun", he says later. The young people are allowed to approach the serious subject without bias. Now larissa is allowed to be a "victim" choose.
That is quickly found. Eva erlwein lies down on the yellow mat. Larissa speaks the "victim eva an. No reaction from eva. "Obviously unconscious", diagnoses larissa. "The breathing works. I'm putting you in the stable lateral position now." She lays the "victim" with the hand grips she learned in the morning in the right position.

Stomach is also just a muscle

"Now i'm going over the top", she says. "Why?", asks the teacher. "So she doesn't choke on her own tongue." The students have already learned that the tongue is also just a muscle. And that muscles go on strike when a person is unconscious. "Otherwise, the tongue slides to the base of the tongue and closes the air tubes", markus nagel repeats the medical background once again, while larissa carefully sticks her head over eva's head. With the help of a practical exercise, he tries to explain what he has learned to the students in a clear way. "If you keep your neck straight, swallowing will work normally. But if you put your head on the back of your neck, it is no longer possible to swallow." This way it can be ensured that an unconscious victim still gets air. "And why actually the stable lateral position?", the teacher asks. The schoolchildren look puzzled for a moment. "So that the victim does not choke during vomiting." After all, the stomach is just a muscle. And an unconscious person empties the contents of his stomach quickly, almost unconsciously. With the help of the stable side position, it is possible to prevent the vomit from entering the lungs through the mouth and pharynx. The first exercise is done.
95 ninth-grade students take part in this year's first-aid course at ebermannstadt high school. The course is voluntary. For this, the students do not just skip a morning of lessons. One afternoon, the participants also have to "do detention", to have the first aid certificate in your pocket. "Many people come because they need the course for their driver's license, of course, says markus nagel. But that does not bother the teacher. After all, a lot of things stick after the six double lessons. "I think the first aid course is good because I want to know how to help other people in an emergency. Now I feel prepared, says 15-year-old lukas dorfler from reifenberg.
