Bad kissingen wants to get to grips with summertime

In the fight for overnight guests, bad kissingen has been using the motto "time" since this year. "Discover the time", is the slogan with which the city and the public baths present themselves to the public. The city now wants to go one step further. On the initiative of the economic demandor michael wieden, it is to be investigated to what extent bad kissingen can take on a nationwide pioneering role in the phasing out of daylight saving time.

There are two reasons for this from wieden’s point of view. "Over 75 percent of germans want to get out", he said in the economic committee. And: "the topic has a first background, which concerns our core competence health." The economic promoter refers to medical findings from various disciplines – including chronobiology, sleep research and neurology – which assess the time change as unhealthy. Among others, professor till roenneberg (LMU munich) and professor emerita anna wirz-justice (universitat basel) are available as expert advisors. The city works with "reputable scientists who have an appropriate reputation in research, the public and the companies", emphasized how. The project is not just a crazy idea, but will help to further raise the profile of the town as a health location. He expects this to attract widespread public attention. "There is a media benefit if we do this in a serious way and not in a flashy way."

Streitberg home manager still has a lot planned

Alexandra dauer from heinersreuth near bayreuth has been the home manager of the streitberger martin luther senior center, the frankische schweiz ebermannstadt senior center and the lindenhof dementia center in unterleinleiter for a year now. She often commutes back and forth between the three facilities, but her main office is in streitberg.

The 42-year-old psychologist says she has not regretted for a second that she applied for this job at the time. Her first day at work was just a rose monday. On this day, the carnival society "narrenkubel" from gobweinstein performed at the senior citizens' home in streitberg. The carnival medal that hangs on the bulletin board above dauer's desk still bears witness to this today.
"I'm actually a carnival buff. But it's quite remarkable what the guards achieve," says dauer, alexandra dauer remembers their appearance a good year ago.

Electric bicycles were the rage

A heiber tip from expert karin petereder before the celebrity bike tour at the health days: "the more leisurely you ride, the more you are supported." And off they went for the participating "celebs." But they made up only the smallest part of the visitors. Without being able to name a number – in previous years it was between 3,000 and 4,000 – the head of administration, matthias lutsch, noted an immense rush this year.
The rehabilitation center’s grounds were crowded by large and small, foreign and local, many to listen to presentations on health topics, to get an impression of the facility, or to rent an electric bicycle (e-bike). Cycling with support was the focus this time.
Health and prevention have a higher priority than before. "Preserving health" and "restoring health the people are interested, as are the treatment possibilities. The health days last weekend provided an opportunity to find out more about the program. Many exhibitors, but also self-help groups were there, giving tips about products and services. Those who wanted to could have their blood sugar and blood pressure measured or test their reflexes on the reaction wall. Already on saturday birgit frings-loskill from the rehabilitation center was very pleased with the response. In addition to the social program, the entertainment, food and drinks on offer were also very well received. Kurkapelle and "historical ladies gave a rendezvous.
The "highlight but this year the movelo-show-truck, which was accompanied by a lot of music and offered the possibility to test e-bikes, was a real highlight. The team had more than 40 such bikes from various manufacturers and with a wide range of equipment. The bavarian red cross was on hand with an ambulance and explained its technical capabilities to interested visitors. Fortunately, neither the BRK nor the local fire department had to become active because of emergencies. They had to fight with drivers who did not understand the overstretched parking situation on the mountain.
The patron of the event was anja weisgerber from the european parliament, who also gave the opening speech. She praised the rehabilitation and prevention center for its "innovative concepts"." The environment also contributes to recovery: "guests from near and far come to our beautiful rhon. At the same time, they were able to get to know the french hospitality." She pleaded for the EU to become active in cross-border coordination in the field of prevention. Although it is possible for europeans to use health services abroad, most of them prefer to be treated in their home country: "the reasons are the relationship of trust with the doctor, the proximity to the place of residence and language barriers", according to weisgerber. She praised the dual system of nurse training in germany. Trainees were integrated into the work process and were able to gain valuable experience for their future careers. In the dual system, theory and practice are very well balanced. She is committed to ensuring that in the future, too, education does not depend on school-leaving qualifications. She rejects the idea of high school graduation as a basic requirement for taking up a nursing profession, because: "enthusiasm for the profession is very important here." One advantage of europe is that research can take place across borders and that research results are immediately available in every country.
District administrator thomas bold said that the home region is the health care industry and trendsetter: "over 40 clinics in the bader region speak a clear language." Qualified providers for health care are located. Nevertheless, the shortage of skilled workers is also becoming more noticeable in the region, and this must be counteracted. People re-entering the profession must be given opportunities for qualification. In addition to vocational training, in-service qualifications had to be introduced.
According to mayor wolfgang back, the goal of the market town of bad bocklet is to develop the town as a health center. He acknowledged the "excellent work", the medical services provided at the clinic, because a health resort is also characterized by its medical competence.

five of the 78 puppies are now at the coburg animal shelter

At first sight there is nothing wrong with them. The five snub-nosed puppies scurry through the quarantine room, sniffing at the incoming visitors and not at all scared. But veterinarian joachim lessing does not hide the danger they were exposed to. "They had not survived the transport to belgium. They were lucky to be discovered in time", he says. The five little dogs that were taken in on saturday at the animal shelter on the brandenstein level were supposed to be transported from the czech republic to belgium in the trunk of a car – crammed into plastic mesh boxes. The police stopped the illegal transport of animals on the highway near werneck (schweinfurt district) and alerted the veterinary office at the schweinfurt district office.

Then everything happened very quickly – and it had to if the lives of the puppies, who were only a few months old, were to be saved. "The animal protection agency took the matter in hand and called animal shelters in the area", says sandra bauer, manager of the coburg facility. At 7 o'clock the vehicle with the dogs had been stopped, at 13 o'clock all the animals were already distributed. "We picked up the five puppies from the animal shelter in schwebheim. They were temporarily housed there."
