President Bush: "A reduced military presence, when combined with a less threatening Soviet presence in Europe, can create a stronger basis for commitment in Europe over the long hold. "America is and will remain a European power."

03. apprentices looking for 'Open day' in a Hamburg-based training center. Students are invited to this day. Apprenticeships in the construction industry once close to meet.
The organizers hope this as many of the boys and girls opt for one of the presented professions. Because the craft, according to the industry in Germany's second-largest economy, has young worried. Every tenth training course is expected to remain unfilled this year. To avert the looming lack of skilled workers, businesses and guilds of all disciplines seek to teach young people the profession of a total of 126 occupations.
Although increasingly modern machines are used in the craft, skill and expertise are required - skills that no technology can replace still.
The globally recognized quality of the German trade is based on the dual training system, which was already adopted by many countries. This vocational school provides the necessary theoretical knowledge, while in operation the practical training under the tutelage of a master is made. Questioned about their motives, is evident that most young people today very deliberately make their career choices. Two votes, which are available for many: "I worked with wood has always been fond, I did an internship twice during my school years and I wanted to always what to do with wood, especially just build furniture."
"I need a little movement and that work and see what I make, and that I finished that from beginning to end, and then the finished product look with the hands virtually. "I got after teaching ' at a job - Yes, in the framework of the exchange of European craft-er-Austausches praktisch-and will then go to Cologne, since learning the French language, and then go to wandering in France."
04. Fuggereiin Augsburg goal to own the world. In Augsburg, there is a city within a city for over 400 years. Morning at five to open its doors. 67 simple houses form the earliest settlement of the poor of the world in the Renaissance style. Since 1521, troubled Catholic citizens living here guiltless in emergency. The name of the settlement - Fuggerei - comes from its founder Jacob Fugger, the then richest mid most powerful businessman in Europe.
A religious duty has imposed the incorporation the residents: in the church daily to pray for the sponsors and benefactors of the Fuggerei.
Also in the apartments, Jacob remains Fugger through a mandatory image currently. Modest requirements, when you consider that the housing is almost free of charge. The Foundation is financed solely from their possession. Their main source of money, the huge forest is however threatened: acid rain has also resulted in irreplaceable damage.
In contrast to the past only elderly people who could not finance their retirement years live today in the Fuggerei. Arms should remain free people in the protection of the Fuggerei. This motto of its founder is still valid. To protect the peace of this place, the gates - join in the evening as always, for more than 450 years.
05. If it is hot in Germany, the shooters to the public occur Schützensport. 1.3 million strive then to shoot the bird, to become King in their club.
Protecting time has their own laws: when else it sees even horses on German roads! In many places the local businesses to rest. Businesses are closed, streets and pubs are populated. Festivals are marriage markets-sagt man and who stays there like at home!
Who is not on the side of the road, often ridiculed the ceremony, whose peaceful Traditionen date back hundreds of years: still: see should you not, that German shooters can also shoot beyond all folklore trained the elite of the German sport shooters who shoot records or - like at the last Olympic Games - wins medals in the clubs.
But nobody is the question of who pays the next beer, the most important Olympic gold medal, and despite all seriousness thinking on shooting. -The Harburg were lucky: the new Pointman has enough money to invite the whole city; He is the Director of a bank.
06. Baumschulen in Schleswig-Holstein rose from northern Germany. They bloom in the Peruvian Highlands, on the red square in Moscow or in the Arabian Desert gardens.
High humidity and a light soil mark the area between the North Sea and Baltic Sea; best conditions for the good plants, shrubs and trees thrive. Flourishes for a hundred years the export; now, after more than 700 nurseries and thus the largest closed tree school in the world created here in Schleswig-Holstein.
A special Stock Exchange helps foreign clients, the Northern German plants and trees, to buy but also the Wildlinge at the current price. And the producers react to the demand: rose growers, for example, bring two or three new varieties on the market each year. The companies have powerful technology in the production and modern warehouse and shipping facilities. Finally, they act with a perishable commodity that must be quickest way out - and delivered.
So, every day many plants leave the northern wine-growing area around the clock, around the globe about the air cross Frankfurt. So remember: where you get a rose - she would be able to the Federal Republic of Germany in the North.
