The Swiss Orchestra "Camerata Ars Viva", one of many youth orchestras from Western and Eastern Europe and from overseas, which met in Berlin for a music competition. The Herbert-von-Karajan Foundation had invited. Before an international jury of composers, conductors, and musicians, every Orchestra had to play a work of his choice and a set piece.
For the fifth time, Berlin was invited to the "international meeting for Youth Orchestra". This competition launched by the world renowned conductor Herbert von Karajan in life aims to musical purposes beyond, to serve the international understanding and tolerance. The members of the Orchestra are usually music students. But even amateurs will compete with the future professionals. The only pure amateur orchestra caused the sensation of this music festival. The 150 aspiring doctors, engineers and physicists from the University of Waseda in Tokyo had chosen one of the most difficult pieces of music literature: Stravinsky's "Le Sacre you Printemps". You tackled this work as a professional top orchestras. Wage their power: the 1st prize in this year's competition of the Youth Orchestra.
Modern living in the Federal Republic of Germany.
Not all future drafts pass the test of reality. In the Westphalian town Wulfen, construction workers mounted the metacity - 1974 a mobile interior made of steel, plastic and concrete. Not only the city planners eagerly waited whether this small town from the retort of its inhabitants would accept.
Today, after 3 years of living experience with metacity, the experiment is regarded as successful. People live here, and they use offering the element construction method applied on a large scale for the first time for mobile living. The floor of his apartment who wants, can change at any time. Only the skeleton of construction of steel girders is adamant. The walls and other finished parts are only bolted or hung.
The system of variable components offers a compelling alternative to the construction technique of precast of concrete, which are stacked everywhere to uniform, inhumane high-rise buildings in the world: individual living, although the apartment itself off the Assembly line.
Large families benefit especially from the variable layout of her apartment, because he meets the changing needs of growing children. The metacity Wulfen is among the first of a total of 7 model tests, being produced in the Federal Republic.
Observations at shopping. The customer is King, it seems. But a highly effective goods advertising seeks relentlessly to persuade consumers to purchase all possible products. This creates a conflict between arisen wishes and needs. The position of the consumer has been strengthened through a targeted consumer policy of the Federal Government.
Consumer protection is a priority of the Government program. State-sponsored consumer centres everywhere work is important "enlightenment" in the Federal Republic of Germany. They inform free of charge and regardless about products and prices, provide shopping tips and help with complaints. A comprehensive new legislation has improved the protection before deception. So, for example "cheating", which give lots of content, but contain little, are no longer allowed.
Guidance for consumers give also the mass media television, radio and press - in particular through comparative product tests as they are performed regularly by the "Stiftung Warentest" or - as in this case - from the Institute for shopping advice of a great German women's magazine. New appliances - the electric drill up to the balance - are tested for safety, handling, durability and material characteristics. More protection for purchase contracts. Contain no clauses, which contain no discernible disadvantages for the consumer.
Shopping help in everyday life: perishable, packaged food must bear a clear indication on the durability period. An example of the reform of the food law.
Consumer information can start enough not early. Product information and consumer behavior are part of the teaching program in many schools in the Federal Republic. Only active and critically select market partner of tomorrow can be from passive consumers.
Because of the Heath bees, this strip of land also in gourmets stands tall in the course: the spicy Heather honey is regarded as a delicacy in Germany. 3-4 million tourists a year can getting caught up in the magic of this primal landscape in the North of the Federal Republic. The Lüneburg Heath nature reserve is one of the oldest in Germany. Driving is not allowed here. Only means of transportation are the feet, the bicycle or horse-drawn carriage. The tart appeal of this silent stone age landscape should not be lost.
Heather and juniper trees make this area unique. Who wanders through it, happens every now and then on megalithic tombs, where the old Germans buried their dead.
The Heidschnucken, a kind of sheep only here represented, are the most important landscape painter. You sink your teeth into the shoots of birch and pine trees, which otherwise would displace the Heather. It is resulted that the millennial ur landscape as a cultural landscape has survived them and the work of private conservation clubs started 80 years ago.
The aviation industry is always safer in recent years. One reason: during the flight all technical systems are constantly monitored. About the engines. For them including the Deutsche Lufthansa has devised a special method of control. All of the aircraft's engines are connected with invisible threads with the large-scale data centers of the home base in Frankfurt. Curriculum vitae and technical condition of each of the motors are stored here. The computers provide a minute repair program, when there is an engine problem.
Before landing the machine have the computer analyzes the source of interference and suggested a repair plan. The engine specialists can go to work so purposeful. First, they expand the whole engine in the huge hangar at the same time including 6 jumbo.
Days or weeks to paralyze a 4 million mark expensive Jumbo engine, would be very costly. Therefore, modern engines are assembled according to the modular principle. For example, a jumbo motor consists of 10 modules. In addition the maintenance work was facilitated by a bond in human medicine: with the borescope, a lit fiber rod, the technicians in the Interior of the engine can look and examine for example rotor blades for damage.
By streamlining in the construction, maintenance and repair of engines, flying has become economic and safe. And since each engine has their own health passport at Lufthansa, its life span is almost unlimited. As with any construction group, which will be replaced after the new diagnostic method, the engine tapers.
Europe's biggest lignite day construction area. It is situated between Cologne and Aachen.
about 100 million tons of brown coal in the year promoted here. Giant bucket-wheel excavators bring this important for the power supply to the Federal Republic of energy from the ground.
43 villages had to yield the excavators with 18,000 inhabitants. You have been rebuilt elsewhere. At the same time, the ruined landscape on a grand scale has been recultivated. Immediately occur after coal tailings machines in action. Fill the huge holes of mining overburden amounts. Then follows a metre-thick layer of nutritious soil as a basis for the recovery of the region. A new landscape emerged - land, settlements and recreation areas.
There are not these lakes with adjacent dense forests without Brown coal mining. For the inhabitants of the metropolitan areas of Cologne and Bonn an attractive recreation area. The Rhenish lignite area is internationally as an example for, how to use natural resources without destroying nature.
The North Sea coast from St. Peter-ording was a cats area for 3 days: 100 Hobie Cats from 5 countries were fighting for the Championship.
On a broad front, the Hobies have prevailed in only 8 years international. The American Hobie alter has designed this quick, easy and stable catamaran for the surf sailing. In Europe, the Germans are not the best, but the begeisterungsfähigsten Hobie sailors. They built into their previously 35000 of this double hull boats.
The sailors from the Netherlands were favored at the first European Championships in this class. Already during the first regatta, they proved that they confidently ruled the 40 km/h fast Renner.
Special technology is needed to reestablish a capsized catamaran. Usually can be neither the boats nor the sailors slightly out of balance. Dogged performance ambition is foreign to the Hobie able. Her sporting motto: "Just for fun!"
Twice, the sailors drove their Hobies around the course with ton inserted. The third race was canceled because the storm came up. The sporting result was as expected: the Dutch took the first 7 positions. The next Championships in Holland should be held after the successful European premiere of the Hobie Cat.
