High, the sailors want to this year. There are the ambitious German youth between world champions and Olympic champions sailing on inland and coastal waters. Although Olympic medals are not awarded this summer. But the sailing World Cup lure and of course for more than half a century the world's best sailors compete the traditional "Kieler Woche" on the.
The sin of the racing yachts hits in September. Then from sailing off the coast of Great Britain the "Admiral's Cup" - the unofficial World Championship of offshore yachts. Once, in 1973, the German team has won the Cup, it was second at the last competition: an incentive for the crews to bring themselves and their race in a timely manner in the form.
On the world's oceans, it is tight. The ships are getting bigger and faster, the traffic density on the international waterways begins to overwhelm the skipper. Spectacular accidents at sea will increasingly deliver headlines. The Bremen University of nautical has acquired an education system of the Jet pilots recently to prepare the ship officer young for the increased requirements.
A digital process computer is the heart of the complex system. Trainers feed the data, an electronic projection system put together on a screen to the real image of ship and environment: navigation in the SA [...] Le. The "ship-handling Simulator" allows the future sea officers to simulate all possible ship maneuvering on dry land.
All maneuvers are displayed from instruments and monitored by the instructor. Each ship has motion characteristics. They are previously stored in the facility that nautical students will always have a specific ship type. He must now respond to the factors acting on the ship from the outside - on wind, flow and water depth were previously entered the computer as exercise program. The instructor can change this program during the exercise, by simulating the loss of instruments, an oncoming vessel changes or a change of wind direction, for example.
The "ship-handling Simulator" is used now also on a testing ground for new Lake sign. Because both must agree, the navigation and the signs of the sea, so that the number of marine accidents.
Berlin - a city with changeful history: Central European melting pot, capital of Prussia and finally - since 1871 - capital city of the Germans, their political, spiritual and cultural center.
The second world war crashes also Berlin in the disaster. The town is occupied by the four victorious powers. Then the war Alliance of the winner breaks apart. Berlin is divided between East and West. Even after the Division of West Berlin remains the largest German industrial city with its 2, 1 million inhabitants and its many factories and farms. For 30 years, Berlin is an indicator of the tensions between East and West. The island closed with a wall and barbed wire in the Soviet sphere of influence survived, because the Western powers security and its ties to the Federal Republic of Germany guarantee her West Berlin survived political pressures, the blockade, the building of the wall. Then broke to better times. The great powers sought a balance of interests. The Western powers and the Federal Government have made Berlin a part of the policy of detente.
'End well - everything good', it was said in 1971, as the four previous victorious Powers had signed an agreement that contractually accepts the existence and further development of the close bonds of West Berlin with the Federal Republic.
Domestic contracts followed this "four powers agreements". The West Berlin can visit since then back to the East of the city and the GDR. The transit traffic has been normalized. Secured transport routes are important for the city: more than half of the goods transport to and from Berlin is handled on the road.
The Berlin issue is not resolved, but the future of the city is safer.
In foreign policy, Berlin is represented by the Bonn Government - also toward the Soviet bloc. Contracts between the Federal Republic of Germany and other States also apply to West Berlin.
The President of Germany has an official residence in the city. From time to time, committees of the Bundestag in the old days. Many federal agencies are working in West Berlin. The pension insurance institution of the Federal Republic has its headquarters here.
So many political, economic and cultural strands between West Berlin and the Federal Republic of securing the future of the city and its citizens. But the basic premise remains that the détente between East and West is persistently developed. So, is and remains a touchstone for the relaxation at the same time West Berlin.
In inconspicuous barracks on the outskirts of the major roads, they sit and wait for the order. When he comes on the radio, every minute is precious. Because people who are in need. Traffic victims need medical help. Voluntary service to the next - that is the motto of those German citizens who sacrifice their leisure time in non-profit organizations to help injured people.
Travel time is accident - in Germany and elsewhere. The Red Cross and the General German Automobile Club are at the front of the accident at the front - with emergency vehicles and rescue helicopters, which are the traffic hotspots around the clock in use.
Seriously injured accident victims have to be supplied quickly. The ambulances are medically so equipped can to treat the injured on the scene or while driving. The rescue helicopter, which then take action, if maximum speed is needed or the emergency service vehicles is hampered by blocked roads provide the same medical care.
The modern technical facilities are very expensive. Still, aid agencies can fund their work continued mainly through donations.
The visit of the President moved for a few hours the public interest on a scientific institution that has a big name so far only in the professional world: JAS Institute of experimental biology and medicine in the Schleswig-Holstein town of Valdez. It owes its worldwide reputation in professional circles in particular the development of a highly effective treatment for leprosy.
The successes in the fight against leprosy have given its name to the Institute. The field of work of 300 scientists and employees is much wider. Chemotherapy, cancer, infectious diseases and metabolic disorders are some of the areas being researched in Borstel. A 10-year research preceded the development of the leprosy drug. This, quite a few mice had to involuntarily stall her soles. Leprosy-causing bacteria in the animal body part proliferate for unknown reasons.
The Leprosy Institute not only research, but is also technical assistants and laboratory technicians--including many from abroad. Governments in Africa, Asia and Latin America allow scientists design programs to fight disease.
The infected paw is removed the mouse killed after 10 months to scientifically evaluate the resulting tumor. Tissue samples of lepers people undergo here regularly. The medicine developed after many promises help for the approximately 20 million leprosy sufferers in the world. How effective is the treatment, the show 6 months captured photos of a leprosy sufferers.
"Sunk in the walls and roofs of the ancient world" - Goethe, the poet Prince of the German classics, in Goslar felt. His critics and poets descendant Heinrich Heine criticized "labyrinthine crooked lanes". Two visitors, two impressions of a city, which had their greatest time 900 years ago. At that time was the seat of the Emperor, scene of great empire days. The Imperial Palace - a precious testimony of Romanesque architecture - has survived the times. Goslar is surrounded by the Harz mountains, a mountain made the city once rich. From its gold, silver and copper mines, the emperors such as from a Treasury availed themselves, the precious metal brought prosperity and independence the citizens. Goslar maintains the memory of his big time. When the city lost their right to the mountain, she impoverished. Stationary in urban development was the result. The citizens began to preserve their splendid past. Today, she and many tourists have the benefit.
The homage of the old Hall holds Gospel book from the 13th century and the mountain jug, a top product of late Gothic jewellery as well as other treasures.
Goslar owes its future also its past: the medieval urban landscape, the romantic jumble of nested slate roofs. If you are travelling in the Harz mountains, visited also Goslar.
250 years ago, the age of the Baroque has produced the greatest composers of organ and organ builders. The organ music made the step to the modern era, the art of the organ, however, remained loyal to its old building principles. To this day.
Each organ - like 300 years ago is created on the drawing board. Also the pipes are still from a Tin plate rolled and processed according to traditional methods. Young. make this old craft does not know. 5 apprentices can be inaugurate in this operation in the art of the organ. The Queen of instruments again has economy. Also, the craft of the organ builder. German workshops export organs in many countries of the world.
The mechanics between button and whistle is built in traditional way. Modern low-voltage technology is used only for the tab control. At the restoration of precious old organs, only the defective parts are replaced. At the time, the Hamburg workshop overtaken ARP Schnittger, one of the most famous organ builder of the Baroque masterpiece.
This organ in the Church comes from the same period from Langwarden on the North Sea coast - a so-called spring loading organ, known among connoisseurs all over the world, one of the most beautiful organs of Northern Germany. The original work to be restored soon.
