A corner of the bar got Lake off the German North Sea coast. A few weeks ago she has recorded her work, the research platform 'North Sea', Centre of a planned network of automatic weather stations with which the Federal Republic of Germany will draw over the North Sea and Baltic Sea in the next few years. A 12,000-ton concrete block on the ocean floor is the platform, which moves an inch of the place even in rough seas. Supply vessels and helicopters bring supplies for the staff.
7 man crew provide the equipment and machines for the radio traffic and catering. For your lonely island life 40 miles off the coast, the team will compensate by comfort. The Cook can take up to four weeks from the solid in his modern kitchen without relying on the supply ships. Trade fair and leisure room with seating areas and TVs make the evening bearable. Up to 28 scientists and marine engineers provide a multitude of tasks, all of which are directed to a target: on the research and optimal use of the oceans.
Not only the science, the industry wants to know how a building in the middle of the sea can withstand wind and waves. The technical testing of systems and equipment under natural environmental conditions and engineering and scientific investigations of the platform itself provide data for the so-called consultants - so for the offshore exploration and production of mineral resources such as petroleum, natural gas and ores - and the construction of new research Islands.
With this super lab full of technology and electronics, the Federal Republic of Germany undertakes the attempt to win the connection at the booth of the marine technology in other countries.
"I was born, my ladies and gentlemen, on January 5, 1876, may I ask whether an older Member, Lord or lady..." I note ladies and gentlemen, that I am only, quite obviously."
Konrad Adenauer, first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany 1965 in the German Bundestag - Adenauer standing in his 90th year. Ends with a mandate as a member of the Bundestag the career "of one of the outstanding statesmen of the post-war history. "He had the imagination to realize the opportunities that lay in the future, but also the sense of what is feasible, from such opportunities to make reality", as the American Secretary of State Dulles once put it. (Chancellor Adenauer is one of the eminent statesmen of the post was-period. He has had the imagination to see the great possibilities which lay ahead and the realism to move foreward to turn those possibilities into reality.)
In these days, Konrad Adenauer would have been 100 years old. An anniversary exhibition in the Adenauer Museum, which was built under his home in Rhöndorf in Bonn, is reminiscent of his life and his political career. With 30 years of Adenauer opts for the policy, with 41, he is already Mayor of the city of Cologne. Immediately after Hitler came to power, he is dismissed from his Office. After the end of the second world war he was among the founding members of the CDU, the Christian Democratic Union. Soon after, he is its Chairman.
in 1949, after the elections to the first German Bundestag, Adenauer is elected by the Parliament by a majority of one vote to the Chancellor. Adenauer is 73 years old when he assumes the responsibility for a newly formed State.
The regaining of sovereignty is one of the first important stops along the way of the politician who appreciates the word realistic like no other. The Germany Treaty does the direction of future foreign policy. For Adenauer, the future is the Federal Republic of Germany in its integration into the Western community of Nations. He leads his country in the coal and Steel Union, NATO, the European economic community.
On numerous trips, Konrad Adenauer strengthens relations of the Federal Republic of Germany to the foreign States.
As the first German head of Government, he visited the United States of America in 1953. In the public opinion, this visit is a great personal success of the Chancellor.
His State visit in Moscow 1955 leads to the establishment of diplomatic relations with the enemies from the second world war.
Charles de Gaulle in Bonn. Also the second of his major goals achieved Konrad Adenauer. The reconciliation with France finally freed Europe from the nightmare of Franco German enmity.
The German of fifties look in any better embodied than in the "old man", who will become a "symbol of the will and the strength to stay alive" for you. After fourteen years of chancellorship, Konrad Adenauer resigns in 1963 by his Office. The Parliament adopted him. "On September 15, 1949 you have arose from your seat to take the place of the Federal Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. Today you leave it again, with a historical performance, unbent and in honor. Konrad Adenauer has rendered to the fatherland."
Berlin - a city that constantly sets new standards: in the second half of the 19th century Berlin is becoming the largest administrative, commercial and industrial centre of Germany. West Berlin because of his buildings from the 19th century as the example of "Architecture of the Gründerzeit" is selected in the European Denkmalschutzjahr 1975.
Much of what has been built in those years, is alive today in the photo. Wide parts of Berlin were completely destroyed in the second world war. Larger areas with city image shaping individual buildings, boulevards and squares still preserved.
The plans for the rehabilitation of these areas - which are in the urban districts of Kreuzberg, Schöneberg and Charlottenburg - based on two requirements: the historical dimension in the development of the city to include and the inhabitants continue to live in their old residential areas to enable. All designs aim therefore in principle "on the conservation of historical urban space, the preservation of the historic building substance and the integration of modern architecture to the existing quarters.", maintain its peculiarity
In Berlin, the European Denkmalschutzjahr will remain not a one-time event, but represent a station in the overall development of the city.
Yellow fever, malaria, sleeping sickness and many tropical diseases transmitted by blood-sucking insects. Scientifically to encircle the pathogens and develop new immune-system components, is understood today as an international task, whose Wichtigkeit grows, since the countries and continents through a denser All the time growing network of diverse contacts move together. At the front on the medical front, the Bernhard-Nocht-Institute for marine and tropical diseases in Hamburg was from the outset. In the largest German port city, it had recognized early that global shipping can transport also diseases and epidemics. Bernhard Nocht, student of Robert Koch, discoverer of the cholera pathogen, a scientific Institute, research on tropical diseases, founded 75 years ago in the port of Hamburg directly treating tropical sick and the training of medical specialists should serve. On the occasion of the anniversary, the Institute to a day of open door opened. Many hamburgers were for possession of A few hours of equipment and work places, where whole generations of scientists have established the reputation of the Institute.
And looks everyday life of tropical doctors. This Raubwanze is only found in South America. It transfers the dangerous Chagas disease. Like other insects, she sits on the skin of people and sucks in seconds full of blood. If it empties, scheidetsie with the blood of the causative agent of Chagas disease out.
Seduces the itch to scratch, the pathogen enters the bloodstream. The microscopic examination identified the causative agent, the treatment can begin. A puffy face and an enlarged heart are the signs of a deported Chagas disease, whose research, Hamburg's tropical doctors had large share.
Mike Harker smiled encouraging. The sympathetic Americans has popularised the kite flying in Europe. And he was there when the German Dragon enthusiasts in the Bavarian Nesselwang-met - for the 1st German championship in Alpine Dragon flight.
The dream of the weightless flight of birds. In the silence of the mountains, competitors eyeing. But the ambition of the hang gliders was limited. Their destination was in the Valley in the village of Nesselwang. Target flight - so was the first exercise of competition.
Trees, meadows, a winding road: reality surrounds the flyer, the dream dislodged. Now he is expecting again, conducts his hang glider, nothing but a precision landing and scoring points in mind. Hang gliding has spread within a few years, almost like an addiction. But who could it deny already - flying in its most beautiful form.
