01-German Curling Championships smooth it must be bare decked out like a mirror! Who has not the 20 kg granite stone and cares who a not carefully eyeing the line, needs not only to take part in the competition for the German Curling Championships. Because: slip must be the thing - centimetre. Curling is a team sport. Four players form a team, the pitcher, 2 "wiper" and the "Skip" as the Dungeon Master. The wiper incessantly Polish the ice before the rolling stone with rapid movements of her broom, so also not the smallest Krümchen inhibits the flow of granite stone.
It is to get the ball in the goal box in the 'House' and to displace the stones of the opposing team. The stone glides too quickly, he overshoots the mark. He runs too slow, he has enough force to push the opponent's stones. The hamburgers, which were invited to the Championships, had left. The German Championships in curling ended this year as a Bavarian family feast. Winner with the ladies was the team with Andrea Schöpp of huge Lake and the team won the men's under her brother Rainer Schöpp.
02. also Germany undergoing profound upheaval in the world of work is vocational training and retraining, as many developed countries. While the growth industries through the use of new technologies to find employees with new skills, the number of jobs in other areas decreases, particularly in heavy industry and in the construction industry. Many of the now two and a half million unemployed can find a new job in the professions, once learned. The Federal Labor Agency has therefore taken the initiative since 1986 with a "qualification initiative". Through the employment offices, thousands of courses to the professional further training and retraining were launched and sponsored. Thus, unemployment could be reduce to 140,000.
"I have worked as a mechanic and ask like whether you there not can educate me?"
"I can give here a course directory, which can... for more details first a lot"
A practical example! CNC training, professional qualification in computer-controlled machine tools. Last year, 530,000 workers took the various offers to the professional training. Two-thirds of them were previously unemployed. To attract new qualified professionals for the future, all work together: the State, the employers and the unions together in the "vocational training works", short BFW.
"I'm here, to the new technology become acquainted with and I this facility find B F W fine. It's good that there's such thing."
These extensive measures are financed by the Federal Agency for work with year 4 1/2 billion mark! Who takes part in the training courses, will be paid to be able to make a living. But the courses are not easy. It takes effort to learn such as program control circuits for industrial robots. Who perseveres, has however good chances. But it's not just about technical professions. More and more professionals in services and social professions are needed in the future for care of the elderly.
"So, I'm learning old care, because I saw no chance in my old profession."
Here, artists in CAD are trained in 'Computer aided design', in the programming of drawing robots. The multimillion-dollar program for the training and retraining is not a panacea in the fight against unemployment. But it is one of the most important measures. The participants themselves know best. "I'm building artist and more found a job and got through this training here to the CAD at the computer work Office. I hope to work again in my career."
03. the Saalburg Roman masonry, in the middle of Germany. Not far from Frankfurt am main the Saalburg, a natural wiederaufgebautes Roman Fort rises first rank as a tourist attraction. Original parts from the 2nd century are the remains of the Roman baths and the artfully landscaped heating. The Saalburg was part of the "limes", the powerful fixing system of earthen walls, watchtowers and forts that ranged from the Rhine over the main to the Danube and to protect the Roman Empire against the Germans. The Museum Director, Prof. Dr. Dieter Baatz, explains its visitors like what they see here: "today, the Saalburg is a much visited museum, where you can even consider the Roman fortification itself - it is built up again - and in the showrooms is a plethora of various archaeological finds." They not only show what had the crew of this limes Fort of weapons, but also what she used on technical equipment. Because this unit of the Roman army, which was, here was largely independent. It could build - in wood, stone. She could contest all needs of daily life itself. That is documented here by a wealth of craft device. "And of course a lot of furniture of all kinds, coins of course - clothing remains can even - shoes."
Thanks to the illustrative material from the history, the Saalburg is a favorite target of whole school classes. The Romans had abandoned their Fort in the year 233. Then it was surrounded by the forests of the Taunus, completely forgotten. Only around 1900 it was finally restored, thanks to generous donations from America.
04. the technical relief organization THW: These letters stand for "Technisches Hilfswerk", a civilian organization in the Federal Republic of Germany. Their goal: Provide assistance in technical field for accidents, accidents and disasters. More than 70,000 volunteers from the different professions come together regularly for exercises. To sacrifice their spare time to learn how to assist others. Because is the guiding principle of the technical relief organisation: want to help is good help is better.
You must build bridges, braces, and temporary bridges, and use submersible pumps, compressor equipment, frame and well drilling. In case of emergency, such as major floods in Northern Germany, the people of the technical relief organisation had to tackle with often for days around the clock. Stakes come unexpectedly and irregular, as here in the salvage of a truck. Today, they are known far beyond the borders of the Federal Republic. Everywhere in the world, the technical relief organization helps disasters. It's everywhere to the point where it is needed.
05. Pforzheim jewellery gold. Pure, real gold. Pforzheim, Germany, on the northern edge of the Black Forest, has a very special relationship with this precious precious metal: almost three-fourths of the German jewellery are manufactured here. No less than 89 companies committed to the high-profile industry with 6,300 employees. The sparkling offer is therefore extremely varied, although jewelry "made in Pforzheim" has a reputation in the design to appear more conservative. Exceptions prove the rule, such as this necklace with the promising name "Diamond flirt".
The development of new models begins - with the designer. His task is to unite unusual ideas with the international standard of the Pforzheimer jewelry to a new plant. Although prodziert in series, first-class quality and exclusivity are guaranteed ensure low numbers and vast manual work. The Goldsmith's art has in Pforzheim a tradition, dating to the 18th century. There were often already the great-grandparents of these goldsmiths in the same industry.
After filing and repeated test, the flirt can begin with the diamonds. With a sharp eye and a quiet hand, the Juwelenfasser insert the small gems before the necklace at the hands of trained "Politeusen" begins to unfold its true glory. According to the strict quality control leaves the diamond Flirt in Pforzheim, to make all honor his name somewhere in the world.
06. Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen a curved, polished granite facade; their elegance fits to Düsseldorf. Withdrawn the new House of art of the 20th century - architecturally and functionally, with natural skylight for all floors - so it has wanted the Danish architect team. The "Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen" wants to be a representative cross-section of modern art; rather, there are outstanding pieces collected in decades after the maxim of the idiosyncratic Director -: "The trick is not to buy, but not buy." - Chagall's self-portrait and his "Fiddler".
An exceptional selection of Cubist Picasso. George Grosz, expressionist, a Prosecutor of his time. Highlights of surrealism, for example René Magritte. Nothing, the architecture distracts the visitor, through no postmodern flourishes. Who wants it, the Museum gives suggestions. Especially many young people expose themselves to the divergent impressions. They like modern art, have you found a favorite during their tour?
"The image of Max Beckmann liked best!" The night", by the extreme depiction of the characters, especially the aggressive features. "So, the image of Wassily Kandinsky liked best, titled"The composition of X", and for that reason, because it expresses a certain happiness through the richness of colors and actually very stimulating to the imagination." I very like, "Great painting" by Roy Lichtenstein because it shows how color and line management can bring a picture." The ' number 32' by Jackson Pollock, because is actually after a focus the eye on the search, for a motive, and it concludes that continuous movement in the image is.
Spontaneous reactions to the art of our time - the standards of their judgments are different; but one thing has been reached, what art should do: stimulate the imagination!
