“Parents put pressure on themselves and their children”

Coburg – increased demands for education and less time together with their children put pressure on mothers and fathers in their upbringing. Often they forget to let their children be children for a change. A conversation with elke scheler, who has been a kindergarten teacher at the marienschule for more than 40 years: about changing times and increased demands.

Tageblatt: ms. Scheler, were parents more relaxed in the past??
Elke scheler: yes, I think so. Simply because most mothers were not employed 40 years ago. They had more time for their children. Today, most parents are both employed, and women often have to perform a difficult balancing act between work and family life. It's really not easy to reconcile the demands on all sides.

Graduation ceremony was a high point for high school students

Graduation ceremony was a high point for high school students

A new phase in life began for 90 students of the state secondary school. The lively graduation ceremony also included words of thanks to the school administration, the teaching staff and the parents’ advisory council.

Principal monika geiger compared the school years to a garden, with everyone receiving a bountiful harvest in the form of a graduation certificate after successfully tending it. After the RSB big band successfully set the mood for the dismissal ceremony, deputy principal harald gerner buried the students with their parents, relatives and all the guests of honor in the obermainhalle. Although all of them were able to reach the high point of their schooling, graduation from middle school, there will continue to be new challenges for the dismissed students. Health and god’s blessing.

Windows from northern hemisphere for high-rise in new york

"The windows that we manufacture are not standard series. We make everything to order, we make custom products", explains peter roth (47), the head of roth gmbh in nordhalben.
What sounds so unspectacular is a thoroughly exciting story. Because the company in northern halben has high-security orders. Currently manufacturing windows for an eight-story un building in new york. The safety precautions are immense. "We have to document everything. Every screw, every dubel we use. Everything is prescribed", peter roth explains and tells us that even profiles, slats and gaps are checked. Because, of course, it has to be ensured that no abhor devices or other prohibited things can be installed in the windows.

"Since 11. September, safety precautions have become even more stringent. This is clearly noticeable for us", says peter roth. And he has the comparison. Because he has been working a lot with american customers for years – always gets high-carat orders as a subcontractor. For example, the company renewed the entrance doors at the warner barracks in bamberg two years ago, and equipped the caserna carlo edlere in vincenza, italy, with pressure-wave retarding elements.

Bmhkw scheblitz : the new burner is already here

Bmhkw scheblitz : the new burner is already here

The scheblitz biomass heating plant is scheduled to go into operation this year. The boiler for the 1460-kw plant was delivered just a few days late. The roof of the new heating plant building had to be opened once again for the installation of the eleven-ton component. The buildings of the scheblitz school center and the scheblitz fire station can be heated with wood chips from the local forests and biomass from the waste collection bins of the district of bamberg, and to a lesser extent from the natural gas supply.

The climate protection officer of the bamberg district, robert martin, justified the delay to the district council's building committee by referring to the procurement of a more efficient biomass boiler. Instead of the originally planned 600 kw, its rated thermal output is now 800 kw. In addition, there is the "gas boiler with an output of 660 kw, which, however, will only serve to cover peak loads. "But we can handle 85 percent of the heating load with the biomass boiler", explained specialist planner frank rothi g from the rodental planning office KSR, which is responsible for the construction of the plant. For the rest the gas boiler stands ready.

“Thank you”

"You are doing a great job! Thank you!", tom wrote on his forest picture. Lina has painted a colorful bunch of daffodils, and niklas encourages her with a lot of glittering stones: "if you look out of the window, you’ll see the same sky as i do". That connects us. Have courage!" two thick envelopes with lots of beautiful pictures and great easter crafts arrived by mail at district administrator christian meibner: the pupils of the ivo hennemann elementary school unnersdorf/grundfeld and the elementary school burgkunstadt sent easter greetings, encouragement and a big thank you to the district’s disaster management leadership group (fugk) and on behalf of all those who are working to cope with the corona crisis.

"This is a great idea and we are very happy about it! The fact that our elementary school students have been so kind in cheering us up in these difficult times motivates us even more in our daily work, district administrator christian meibner, who as head of the district office is at the helm of the fugk as disaster control authority, praised the action.

Research project: women’s reluctance to learn computer science

Research project: women's reluctance to learn computer science

Those who study computer science hardly have to worry about their professional future. But these good prospects are still attracting especially young guys. Women at the computer are still almost a rarity. Why is that? Do male networks hinder career opportunities in the industry?? Do women have concerns about balancing family and work demands?? Does the industry trust women less? The uni bamberg hopes to find answers to these questions.

There is a lot of speculation on the subject, says professor ute schmid. "What is missing so far is a long-term study that compares the career expectations and career paths of women and men who study and have studied computer science." this is what the university of bamberg now wants to do – in the project "alumnae tracking". In a first wave of the survey, 900 questionnaires were sent to graduates. The proportion of female computer science students in germany is around 20 percent, according to cornelia winter of the gesellschaft fur informatik (society for computer science). "It's rising – very slowly, but still." a few years ago only 14 percent of the students were female. Simone schineller belongs to this minority. She studies applied computer science in bamberg. She didn't think it was a big deal that there were only a few female students in computer science – she was always accepted in the seminars and study groups. "I have never regretted my choice of study at any time." soon she will finish her studies. But she does have a few fears. Employers may have less confidence in her than in a male applicant.

Weisendorf children collect school fees for their indian peers

Weisendorf children collect school fees for their indian peers

The weisendorf zubza aid project starts at the weisendorf market day on sunday, 2. October, the next round. At their stand, the schoolchildren want to advertise for further sponsorships.

Father samuel elow has reported other names of children to weisendorf who would like to attend school but whose parents cannot pay the school fees and send their children to work in the fields.
A sponsorship costs 80 euros per year and enables a child to attend school directly and without administrative costs. On sunday, after the harvest thanksgiving service at 10 a.M. In front of the protestant church, this year’s zubza solid bread campaign will start, and the weisendorf branch of the brothaus bakery chain has agreed that 50 percent of the proceeds from the sale of pretzels on market day will go to the zubza aid project.

Spd warns against g8 rush to judgment

Spd warns against g8 rush to judgment

Immediately before a second summit meeting in the state chancellery on the future of the eight-year high school, the state parliamentary SPD warns against a quick fix and calls for a moratorium. "What has been planned so far in terms of improvements for the eight-year high school misses the real problems by a long way", SPD education politician martin gull, chairman of the education committee in the state parliament, criticized the league on monday. The SPD therefore called on minister-president horst seehofer (CSU) to ensure that the roundtable did not make any final decisions.

The second G8 summit was scheduled to begin this afternoon at the state chancellery. Seehofer hopes to pacify the long-running dispute over the G8. Gull criticized lack of involvement of experts, parents, teachers and opposition: "seehofer’s circle of experts lacks educational researchers, other parents’ and teachers’ associations and, above all, the very ordinary teachers who do the day-to-day work."

How does karoline feel?

How does karoline feel?

Dress rehearsal in the multi-purpose room of the dientzenhofer high school, two weeks to go until the bavarian school theater days in vaterstetten. That means: now everything should be clear, one last run-through of "casimir and caroline", but just to be on the safe side. Or?

In fact, there still seems to be some need for negotiation in the upper school theater team of dominik stoecker and ludwig bieger. "Have you now agreed where you want to stand??", asks stoecker. "We do it spontaneously", replies manuel roser from the group that is loosely grouped, dressed strictly in woman and black.
