Quiet launch of the iphone 5 in china

Quiet launch of the iphone 5 in china

Apart from the complicated sales process, chinese media and internet users also cited the comparatively high price and unconvincing improvements in design and function as reasons why enthusiasm is low. However, mobile operator china unicom reported that some 300,000 preorders had been placed.

In the difficult chinese smartphone market, apple slipped from fourth to sixth place in the third quarter and is looking to catch up again with the iphone 5. The official launch in china, apple’s second-largest market, came barely three months after the iphone 5’s U.S. Launch. In the rough apple store in the popular peking sanlitun village, however, only a few customers inspected the new iphone in the morning. After the chaos at the sales launch of the iphone 4S, grids had been set up. A dozen police officers, numerous security guards and store clerks were prepared for a stampede, but it didn’t happen.

In order to curb the black market, only two iphones could be ordered per person on the internet since the previous day. "We have no other choice," said one seller. "There was too much chaos at the launch of the iphone 4."Referring to the pushers who sell the iphone 5 with extra charge in front of the door, the apple employee said: "they are the reason. Otherwise we would just sell it over the counter."Another vendor explained the low number of visitors also by the snow cover that had covered peking during the night.

Eight years of construction work: this is how the rail expansion is changing the city of bamberg

Eight years of dredging, drilling and concreting along the railroad in bamberg when the railroad begins its new route through bamberg. Six subways, two road bridges have to be rebuilt, many buildings demolished.

What the centennial project means for bamberg, what risks it entails and, despite all the traffic jams and roadblocks, what opportunities it offers, is what we want to shed light on in a new series. The city council already has to decide what the buildings in bamberg should look like.

We are starting with the railroad underpass memmeldorfer strabe – bamberg’s roughest pinhole. 18,000 motor vehicles pass through these narrow pipes every day, including 391 trucks and 72 buses.

Living in bamberg is becoming more and more popular

living in bamberg is becoming more and more popular

Munich is still the most expensive city in germany for rents and purchase prices, but other regions in bavaria are slowly catching up. In a recent city ranking, in which the development of existing rents between 2007 and 2012 was examined, bamberg came in 6th place with an increase of 26.5 percent. And even finished ahead of munich. In the state capital, however, prices have been at such a high level for some years that the percentage increase is no longer quite so high.

Attractive medium-sized towns in bavaria attract investors
What many bambergers have known for a long time has now been proven by studies: bamberg is attractive and sought after by investors. In the GMA ranking for medium-sized towns and cities, which determined the most interesting locations from a retail point of view, aschaffenburg took first place, but bamberg came in fourth. Rank still in the top 5. This means that two french cities are represented in top positions, which illustrates the high potential of this region and gives investors hope for good future prospects. As far as the housing market is concerned, bamberg has long been regarded as a secure location with good prospects. Here, too, the result for many residents is that rents are rising and living space is becoming increasingly scarce.

No company wants the job

The current high level of capacity utilization in the construction industry is also leaving its mark on the community of segnitz. "It’s the same old story, you can’t get any more companies," mayor marlene bauer informed the council that no bids had been received for the tender for work on the mainstrabe entrance to the village.

In consultation with the office for rural development (ALE), it proposed to postpone this measure and to put it out to tender together with the rehabilitation of the local thoroughfare. "With the prices, they don’t give us any hope that it will be more favorable for us, but we reckon with better chances to get a company at all," explained bauer.

Due to the postponement, the rehabilitation of the local thoroughfare should no longer begin in the second half of this year, but as soon as possible in the spring of next year. One advantage would be that the construction site would not remain over the winter. The work on the entrance to the village was to be completed in 2020. The council unanimously agreed. For the redesign of the mainland, builder april announced that construction would start soon.

Knife attack in the middle of ravensburg – several seriously injured

Knife attack in the middle of ravensburg - several seriously injured

It is a sunny autumn day when screams suddenly ring through the center of ravensburg. People are running around in a state of total panic, looking for help – that’s how mayor daniel rapp (CDU) tells it later in the day. The situation has calmed down a bit again. In the afternoon, things looked quite different: a man flinches with a knife on marienplatz square. He seriously injures three people, one of them life-threatening.

His motive? This is still completely unclear in the evening, as the investigators emphasize. A police spokesman says that a terrorist background has been ruled out for the time being. Beyond that he does not say much. The fact that the suspected perpetrator can be arrested quickly is probably also thanks to the city’s mayor: according to his own statements, it was he who confronted the man with the knife.

"I happened to be nearby," the 46-year-old told the german press agency. Because witnesses ran to him "in a complete state of turmoil", he went to the scene of the crime, the marienplatz. "Then suddenly the perpetrator was standing right in front of me with a knife covered in blood and threatening me. I then said: he should put the knife on the floor."This is what the man did. "It was such an instinctive act."

Farmers can use fallow land more for fodder crops

According to the amt fur ernahrung, landwirtschaft und forsten (AELF) schweinfurt, the use of fallow land as ecological priority areas (ovf) and other fallow land for forage purposes in livestock farming is permitted as of today, july 1, due to the spring drought, especially in the north of bavaria. July the use of fallow land as ecological priority land (ovf) and other fallow land for forage purposes in livestock farming is permitted. This applies to agricultural land in all of franconia as well as in some other counties in bavaria. For flat outside of bavaria, prior approval of the AELF is required. The authority in schweinfurt is also responsible for the district of habberge and operates a business office in hofheim.

New in 2020, according to the office, is that farmers must informally notify the responsible AELF in advance of the earlier use, naming the affected field pieces, if the forage use of the fallow areas has already been stopped from 1. Up to 15. July. The report can also be made in ibalis via the new message function in the application.

According to the EU’s greening requirements, the flats will continue to be considered ovf, but with regard to crop diversification, they will no longer be considered as brown flats (crop code K40), but as flats with grass or grass fodder plants (crop code K36). This can lead to a loss in crop diversification for individual farms and thus to a shortage of the greening pramie if the requirements for the proportions of the crop codes are no longer met (see the yellow leaflet on the multiple application 2020). Who has problems with this or suspects difficulties, should only use the feed from 16. July, the office in schweinfurt advises; then also for areas in franconia the previous obligation to report to the AELF becomes unnecessary.

Chemical and pharmaceutical industry expects sales to decline in 2020

Chemical and pharmaceutical industry expects sales to decline in 2020

German chemical and pharmaceutical industry expects a weaker full year after significant declines in the second quarter.

In 2020, revenues were allowed to decline by six percent to 186.4 billion euros compared to the previous year, as the industry association VCI announced in frankfurt on tuesday. VCI expects production to fall by three percent. If you exclude the pharmaceutical industry, production was allowed to fall by four percent.

"Our industry suffered a historic slump in the second quarter," said VCI president christian kullmann. The shortage of orders was not the only challenge, however; there were also problems with the supply chains. Nevertheless, kullmann does not expect chemical and pharmaceutical companies to shift production from asia to germany.

Redevelopment area instead of code of honor

Redevelopment area instead of code of honor

Mayor bernd ruppert (CSU) became clear in the youngest municipal council meeting hausen, before he announced the announcement of the resolutions from the non-public meeting. He noted again that resolutions and basic knowledge from the closed session had been actively communicated by individual councillors. He will not tolerate this any further with regard to the land use plan and will inform the legal supervisory authority about this.

Orders for the community center

The mayor then announced the contract awards for the sports and community center from the previous meeting. The structural design was awarded to the company lang from ebermannstadt for 112900 euro. The planning for the fire protection will be done by the company witzl from oberasbach (cost 20 160 euro), and the planning for the building physics will be done by the company basic for 27 710 euro. The roofing, waterproofing and plumbing work for the wimmelbach daycare center was awarded to the lohse company for 139,631 euros, ruppert announced. The survey of road conditions in the municipal area by means of measuring images was awarded to the company riwa for 22,922 euros. All awards are net prices.

Unanimously the council decided to join the tourist association "franken" to join. Mayor ruppert sees the newly acquired membership as a great opportunity for hausen. An important factor, according to ruppert, is the integration into the complex network of the tourism association.

Refugees are unevenly distributed across bavaria

Refugees are unevenly distributed across bavaria

Where do most refugees live in bavaria?? Are there regions where there are above-average numbers of asylum seekers?? Actually, this should not be the case, because they should be evenly distributed across the free state in relation to the number of inhabitants. But apparently the reality lags behind the decree of the state government.

According to the latest figures, there are currently 156.000 refugees accommodated. Research by bayerischer rundfunk has now revealed that many cities with no district take in more refugees than districts in their immediate vicinity. A phenomenon that can be observed above all in franconia.

Average: twelve refugees per 1000 inhabitants

On average, bavarian counties and cities have accommodated twelve refugees (per 1,000 inhabitants) in regular facilities.
