From the daily flow of events to filter out and disseminate what is important or interesting: That is the task of journalists and news agencies. They have become an essential link between the peoples. The more the world is growing together, a fast and objective reporting becomes more important. The free flow of information exchange between East and West, South and North is a basic need of human society.
DPA - Deutsche Press Agency is one of the international news agencies. Its headquarters is located in Hamburg. Up to 3,000 messages are processed here every day. 189 newspaper publishers, radio and television companies are shareholders of the DPA. No shareholder may hold more than 1.5% of the shares: the Agency in their work makes free and independent.
DPA employs approximately 800 fixed and many freelancers and maintains its own global correspondent network. Global message exchange practiced by DPA since a long time include agreements and co-operation agreements with partners in over 50 countries.
The DPA has leveraged the progress of messages delivery technology. Domestically and in the European field correspondents still on radio and cable drop their messages at the Central Office. In the overseas market but dominates already computer and satellite technology.
Also in the Hamburg Office, a computer speeds up the processing of texts. Incoming messages be passed electronically sorted by urgency, on the screens of the competent departments. The first messages, especially the urgent, be edited by the editors on the screen and then on by electronic means to the Agency transmitter Libermittelt. -Newspapers, radio and television - customers have the benefits of this new, faster way of the message. Belongs to the international collaboration for DPA constant personal contact with foreign journalists. DPA awards scholarships and trains interns. So helped third world countries to build up their own powerful agencies.
With foreign services in several languages, DPA provides a comprehensive picture of the life and events in the Federal Republic of Germany in addition to international news.
North Germany sank under a blanket of snow. Cities cut off, covered a farming villages: an image that possibly the elders knew. The worst snow disaster in decades met the Federal State Schleswig-Holstein.
Hundreds of motorists have been snowed on the roads and highways. Trains got stuck in snowdrifts. Power lines collapsed under the weight of ice and snow. More than a hundred villages and homesteads were cut off from the outside world. With mountain tanks and helicopters, soldiers of the Bundeswehr to the enclosed fought before.
More often than expected the technology for nature had to surrender: an experience that was new for many citizens.
That in a high-tech society one is dependent on the other, that the forces of nature have made clear.
In an emergency, the helicopter was the last resort. Still got killed 12 people. After 5 days, the first condemned a car drivers could continue. Not - so - say makes inventive. People found old virtues with them in the snow chaos of Schleswig-Holstein: helpfulness and responsibility for the next.
Veterinary medicine in Hanover. King George the third founded 200 years ago, so that his cavalry had always healthy horses. This "Royal Roßarzney" of yore has become Germany's largest training school for veterinary medicine. The horse is now only one medical object among many. Of the 5 clinics of the University is reserved but still for horses. Here, modern medical technology delivers the symptoms of a cardiac horse students.
Veterinarians have to do not only with live animals. You work in the pharmaceutical industry, monitor food and investigate slaughter animal meat before it goes on sale. Before their later specialization, the future veterinarians must complete a broad basic training.
On dead animals, students test their theoretical knowledge and learn about disease patterns.
Theory and practice complement each other well in clinical teaching. Students make diagnoses, treatment suggestions and carry out small operations. More than a thousand students come from 37 different countries. Also the medical treatment of animals belongs to the everyday life of students. Here, they learn as a beef surgically to remove a talismanic object. A star marks the spot at which unite the rivers Werra and Fulda to the Weser. Münden is were at their point of intersection, one of the most beautiful half-timbered towns in Northern Germany.
A 650-year-old stone bridge leads visitors to the almost completely preserved old town. The carving with the for Hannoversch Münden typical Schiffstau ornament heralds the prosperity of the past and its source, the ship traffic on the river.
The residential buildings in the old town were previously consistently used as warehouses: due to the flood danger, the goods had to instead kept in the cellar to the attic are. Today, to convert the old building into sophisticated apartments. Dilapidated buildings are not demolished, but restored at great expense. The guardians have a taste for the renovated medieval houses, because they live like in the city. Doctor Stefan Eckert is the best known and at the same time a flamboyant figure of the city's history: a surgeon of the Baroque period, who moved around as a walking doctor and died in Münden. As a comedy hero he celebrates his resurrection every year.
Today Hannoversch Münden attracts many tourists. In the Castle Museum, the visitor can admire old arts & crafts: faience and ceramics of the network.
Among the admirers of this small town in the Weserbergland, Alexander von Humboldt was the world traveller and naturalist. For him, Münden was one of the world's 7 most cities.
A bookcase as big as a super ship: Berlin's now opened State Library can set new standards for function and architecture of large libraries.
The original building is the last work of the prestigious architect Hans Scharoun. Federal President Scheel did show up on the opening day the collection of precious manuscripts from the old Europe and the Orient.
Old manuscripts are often threatened by decay. Institute and private collectors of home and abroad can work their valuable pieces here by experienced restorers.
In the book magazine uses the editor quickly. Electronic data processing and microfilm are important tools. If everything works as it should, the books, this includes all newspapers and magazines of in Germany are ready at your fingertips.
In the center of the library of great reading room. It is designed to, that is also several hundred visitors each other in reading blinds. Someone who has time, can be here long stop: soon will be 4 million books on the shelves.
To make flying safer and more, the German research - und Versuchsanstalt für Luft - und Raumfahrt has made to the task. Experiments in the low speed channel: an excerpt from practical work of 3,500 employees. Successful impetus recently gave the technicians for the development of new building materials: their glass-reinforced plastic is particularly resistant and elastic. Slow motion studies of a glider, whose wing are made from a new material zei¬gen the resistance.
The aircraft technicians have devised a new electronic control system. Instead of the usual control cables and rods, with whom, aileron and elevator of aircraft be moved, electronic circuits take over the transfer of control signals in this system. These signals are raised with one hand.
In difficult flight situations, lightning fast optimal tax corrections can be calculated and executed with the new system.
Soccer on ice and snow. The winter is European Footballer facing tough problems. On the frozen turf of the stadium of Düsseldorf, the German national team rehearsed their comeback. Touchstone was Holland, the current Vice World champion. With a good game against the Dutch class team, the German players wanted to make forget its poor performance in the last World Cup in Argentina. The Munich-based Rummenigge creates the 1:0 sent the Germans had outsmarted the offside trap of the guests. The first goal against the Dutch injury lively play of newly formed national team.
Holland goalkeeper of Schrijvers is checked hard. The Federal League professionals covered on rehabilitation must not disappoint your audience and play attacking football.
20 minutes later, the hapless since many playing centre forward fishing has finally his achievement. While the guests to wrangle, the German football world seems in order.
Not only the smooth floor, also the awakening spirit of resistance the Dutchman begins to disrupt the flow of the game the Germans. Still, the Vice World Champion sees a chance to turn the tide. A position error of the German goalkeeper, and the Dutch to achieve the goal. The game is open again.
The fast Rummenigge can be stopped only by a foul. Free-kick. One thing for the specialist Rainer Bonhof.
The refined cut ball is out of reach for goalkeeper of Schrijvers. The 3: 1-final result has again reconciled the German fans.
