Forest fire on the Heath (2nd report) camera: Rieck urbanization in Paris origin: Gaumont admirals Cup origin: COI at the beginning and end of total length
This report the century fire 7 days the conflagration in Lower Saxony, the largest this century raged. How big, documented a Soviet satellite: he shot from space photographs that showed a 250 km-long plume of smoke.
The Bundeswehr was created only to help, as the fire had eaten kilometres wide aisles in forest and Heath. Soldiers, tanks and helicopters reinforced the civilian army - a total success. The fire helicopters, which operated with water pockets on the front of the fire were hardly successful. The plastic bags sent by the Swiss air-rescue with a capacity of 800 litres are suitable only to drop from low down on low fire. Also French water bomber aircraft remained ineffective. On the walls of flame, which reached a height of up to 40 meters, evaporated water without effect.
The mountains - and the main battle tank of the German armed forces had the strongest effect. They beat wide paths in the Woods and isolated the fire flock in this way.
The pine forests, dried up after weeks of heatwave, resisted all attempts at deletion in the first few days. Additional food was the fire on the preservation courses between the forests: where thousands of tree trunks - camped remnant of the large Hurricane three years ago. 10 villages were evacuated to seitweise. The fire destroyed 100 square kilometer forest and leisure areas.
This includes the Lüneburg Forester Liebeneiner: "enormous damage not only economically, but also by the fact that people who want to look for recovery, here to relax, avoid these Woods now on long time. And afforestation takes tremendous effort and anyone who is involved in the reforestation of these forests, as I also, it is hurt to the heart which, when seeing now the work he has put so much effort into, disappear. And all this through unique negligence by a man who might throw away a match or careless dealing with fire here.
If you ask me, why not stand can be such a tree, the bark would be just burned, so I have to say the living layer of the tree is just under the bark, which is killed by the heat, the tree is dying slowly, that is why he must go and, before he spoils.
These pines here, under which we are have used the 70 years, until they reach this height, and who wants to see a new stock which have to wait 70 years, i.e. a human life."
This society: Urban outdoors that big cities in the world are always, grow bigger so fast and irregularly, that suffocation death threatens them. Whether New York, San Francisco, London and Paris--the images are the same: too few and expensive apartments, overcrowded schools and hospitals, clogged roads, overloaded public transport. Paris stands for many other capitals of the world. In 120 years, the population in the Paris of district of rose to 10 million inhabitants. Each 5 Frenchman has settled itself or in its suburbs in the metropolis - some in cloud height. Because compaction was the magic word that spurred the city planners as elsewhere in Paris for many years. They forced the growth in height. Giant towers of glass. Steel and concrete deface the growing urban landscape since then. What was older, more modest, was replaced by the new monsters - mostly against the protest of the inhabitants.
Inawischen thought to the Paris City Planner. Urbanization is the new keyword, new laws stopped the compression process in the city. The old suburbs were amalgamated and opened up by local public transport. New urban centers are springing up on the outskirts of Paris.
When arable land becomes land, speculation is flourishing. But in the rural areas of Paris, speculators looked in vain for profit. A new land law regulates the real estate prices and admits a right of first refusal to the municipalities. Evry one of the new satellite cities, whose incidence of rich modern living needs overhauled architecture that could be realized partly because the new land policy land prices kept low. Despite living comfort, shopping and leisure centres, in spite of many game and green spaces, also Evry Malon Senart, which most clearly has turned away with his low, relaxed zoning from the monumental architecture of the city is an urban planning experiment that its test must - still exist as well as.
The city bought 60,000 hectares of forest for the 5 planned satellite cities and had - green Freiseit and recreation zones, which promise a new quality of life the city emigrants living in the big city, and the natural next door. This sport: doldrums absent the British sailing port of Cowes was for a week focuses on the world of sailing. In 4 races fought the best skipper in the world for the most coveted trophy, sailing has to offer: the Admiral's Cup.
At the start of the last regatta, 50 million mark on Lake cavorted. Experts estimate the value of 60 Super vessels that are applied to the unofficial World Championship of offshore yachts so high.
The German team scored twice in the 4th race behind the British and Americans here. The yachts, Pinta, Duva and Rubin were in the majority of crew members who sailed before the British 2 years had snatched the Admiral's Cup. What at that time was considered a sensation of international yachting, should be cool this time calculated result of refined yacht cracks and superior tactics. But several lulls crossed through this Bill. Already in the first race, the racers souped up had to let pass the lighter yachts in the competition.
All 3 yachts built on a drawing board in New York - at Sparkman & Stephen's most prestigious design office in the world were built which they on German and Dutch shipyards, the Duva and Rubin from shape a Tabasco - mahogany wood, aluminum. Cost per yacht: about 500,000 marks.
When the wind aufbriste, the German ships turned around, and the defending champion drew new hope. But the breeze never held before. Then the crews were experimenting with all cloth on board and sampled new course maneuver--not always with success: skipper Saeed headed his Ruby once in a slack hole in which she State for hours.
The fresh wind at the end of the 4th race came too late for the German yachts. They had lost too many points during the Flautensegelei. Although many participants due to irregular conditions of competition were protesting: the Admiral's Cup went back to the flautener travels British, who knew every flow in their home waters.
