Generation change at the German art Gymnasts. The old guard is ceded, now the young looking for his chance. The young girls are not optimistic: the distance among the leading Nations of the turn is too large. But there were all at the World Cup qualifiers in Hamburg. The chance to get into the German squad for the artistic gymnastics World Championships in Strasbourg, was going to miss any.
Most arrived after the jump on the horse safely to the stand: training deficiencies, which cost points.
Ute Maiwald, the 17 year-old German champion on the balance beam - the fear device of all gymnasts. She won in Hamburg, but showed uncertainty and failed a good rating by the early loss.
Petra Kurbjuweit convinced by an appealing performance in the floor exercise. She erturnte up a place in the World Cup squad. Their exercise was however not international standard.
With a somersault on the uneven bars - a daring exercise that succeeded. On this device, the next generation of gymnasts showed at its best. At the last Olympics, the German women's team finished 7th place. If she can keep him at the World Championships in October, despite impressive individual performances is how she showed the young Antje Kühl on uneven bars for example uncertain after the test in Hamburg.
State porcelain factory in Berlin. Who loves precious porcelain, acquainted with the products of this workshop, which is one of the oldest in Europe.
The porcelain produced still today unchanged from the 3 substances, kaolin, quartz and feldspar - according to the recipe of the chemist Böttger 1709 boettger, a production formula for artificial gold looked for many years and had come here the secret of porcelain on the track, a thousand years after the Chinese, who had kept their knowledge for themselves. Although the manufacturing process has been refined: the process has remained the same. Plaster cast forms, in which the liquid porcelain mass later solidifies into a pot or vase.
The Turner used the plaster mould to produce a so-called blank with soft, kneadable mass.
Plates is easier: a portion of Pozellanmasse on the form, which begins to rotate then mechanically. A mechanical template gives the dish its predetermined strength.
Handles and knobs a jug or a porcelain figurine items are added together with a special porridge. At least here, even the layman recognizes the difference that makes the skilled person between engineering and art porcelain. Craftsmanship and artistic sense can be of porcelain bodies are small works of art.
When the pieces out of the kiln, some is perhaps that later becomes a coveted collector's item: nearly as much value as the gold that Böttger's porcelain creator actually wanted to invent. There are now 450 pedestrian zones in the cities in the Federal Republic. The cars out of the city to distribute, to return them to the people: this target has been reached according to the city planner to some extent.
The high street in Cologne is an example of negative developments: a noisy marshalling yard for buyers, the opposite of urbanity and quality of life.
In Hamburg, a pedestrian street in a bridge over a transport hub ends: a planning error, as we now know. Because pedestrian streets only work if they link major city centers. Therefore, buyers fail in this road, since the cars are banned.
The Hamburger Mönckebergstrasse, one of the best-selling purchase boulevards of Europe, was connected to the main train station 10 years ago by a pedestrian street. This attempt was successful. A lively shopping and strolling zone was created, with many small shops, restaurants and recreation areas: a human mile in the middle of a city that has become inhospitable due to noise and car exhaust fumes.
The market should be back to the heart of the city, to focus on the economic, social and cultural contacts of people. Warned by negative developments, the German urban planner approach carefully as so far on the development of new pedestrian zones.
Receiving antennas for information from weather satellites: no direct connection to the weather God personally, but for the German weather service an important help to keep the movements in the atmosphere at the track. The German weather service in Offenbach is one of the 5 European centres which supply the northern hemisphere of the Earth with weather data. Electronically controlled drawing instruments, computer, display screen equipment, magnetic tape units: everything, what holds the modern technology, is installed in the Offenbach high-rise. The remit of the weather service is stretched far: he gives meteorological information for the air and maritime, land transport and industry, health and agriculture. Weather satellite and thousands of measurement and observation stations on Earth provide the necessary data for short - and medium-term weather prediction. The satellite and computer technology has improved especially the accuracy of weather forecasts for several days.
Africa on a satellite photo. The weather observation from space is the most spectacular achievement of meteorology which is limited not only to weather predictions for the time being. The climate maps and atlases, the numerous opinions of the Deutscher Wetterdienst have long become an indispensable aid for the economy. When it comes to the choice of location by large companies or the development of urban areas, land planning takes into account increasingly climate factors.
Blind children together with non-handicapped are taught in a Hamburg school: a social educational experiment, intended to help blind children early on to find their place in society.
Help in the biology classroom teaching models, in German teaching blind people use a normal typewriter. They write a text dictated by the teacher together with the other students, without that they need to rely on the aid of Braille point.
To this day, blind people to read and in their correspondence on the large, bulky Braille books are instructed. A small cassette will replace these books in the future. It belongs to an electronic literacy and reader, which constructed a German company. Braille is stored here in the form onto a tape recorder. On push of a button, these impulses turned into the scanned Braille back.
Must be helped early blind children, so that they do not sink into isolation and despair. Educators developed toys and selected activities, which make it easier for disadvantaged children to understand their environment and to participate in it.
In school kindergartens prepare severely visually impaired and blind children on the transition to the school before, where you constantly improving ways to realize them. 70,000 blind people, including many children and young people, living in the Federal Republic. To make her tough life worth living, is one of the duties of a humane society.
The airlift monument in front of the airport Tempelhof: a sign of thanks Berlin for help in hard times. Berlin 30 years ago: the city is since the war under the control of the 4 powers United States, United Kingdom, France and the Soviet Union. In June 1948, Berlin becomes the focal point of the cold war: the Soviet Union withdraws its representatives from the Council, the joint administrative body of the four victorious powers and has a total blockade of West Berlin. With the three Western zones, Berlin is connected only by 3 air corridors.
Rigorously, supplying vital for Berlin from the West is interrupted on all road, rail and waterways. More than 2 million West Berliners seem helpless to the Soviet pressure.
The Western powers set up an air bridge. Under the leadership of general Lucius D. Clay, the American military Governor, taking the unique attempt to supply a city of only from the air. Hundreds of mothballed military aircraft were put back into service. American and English its air transport capacity increased from week to week. "Raisin bombers" called the Berliner aircraft, of which you survive depended.
Soon an aircraft landed at the airport of Tempelhof almost every minute. The planes brought food and clothes, and just about everything the human being to life needs.
It was too tight on the airfield, the English used flying boats, landed on the Wannsee.
On peak days, the Allied Armada flew up to ten thousand tonnes of supplies to the beleaguered city. The Berlin took courage back.
The airlift was transporting construction materials, coal and machine parts. A whole power station was built with parts flown in. The day - and night use claimed victims: 70 British and American pilots lost their lives during the Berlin flights.
The airlift lasted over a year. During this period, more than 1.8 million tons of supplies were shipped to Berlin. Then, the Soviet Union abandoned their blockade. The future of West Berlin as part of the Western world was finally secured later by a four powers agreements.
