“Energy and poetry”: musician trio with charisma

It is not easy to be an organizer. The coordinator of the kissinger summer, thomas lutz, also had to find this out. Peter did not mean well with the event "energy and poetry" in the enchanting ambience of the hammelburg castle garden. Confident that the weather will hold on sunday morning, the concert of the trio macchiato from hamburg "open air" took place instead of. As a precaution, rain capes were handed out to the small number of visitors, and that was a good thing. But peter kept sending sprinkles during the two-hour event. The audience took it easy and still enjoyed hammelburg wine and the music, because the trio macchiato proved to be a real treat. With an interesting cast, exciting music between gypsy folklore, italian canzone, tango argentino and slavic influences, their melodies resembled a musical round trip along the countries around the mediterranean sea. Trio macchiato, that is: jana mishenina (violin, vocals), jakob neubauer (button accordion, vocals), henry altmann (double bass, percussion).

In a harbor by the sea

Expressive in their interpretations, they made you feel as if you were sitting in a cafe somewhere in a harbor by the sea. They interpreted well-known melodies such as the famous italian hit "azzurro" not in the style of adriano celentano, but in their own adaptation, reminiscent of "yiddish" poetry music reminded. In between, they recited poetic poems or told exciting stories that led from one piece to the next. Expressive, but also sensitive or melancholic, in between also fast and lively, their melodies sounded, which had to touch you in the soul as a listener. One had to listen carefully to which well-known melody they had just reinvented. The nursery rhyme "spannenlanger hansel" was like that only for a skilled listener recognizable. Impressive also jana mishenina, who is not only an excellent violinist, but also a very good singer and can enchant with her old voice. Perfect, homogeneous interplay distinguishes the musicians, but also the human charisma that characterized the three of them. It is understandable that they are a welcome guest at renowned festivals. They spread light and sun with their performance, so that the rain-covered sky no longer storte. Virtuoso music full of energy and exciting chats full of poetry, that also pleased the audience, who thanked the trio with much applause for an entertaining morning.

Health insurance survey: only one in ten lives an all-round healthy lifestyle

Almost half of the respondents (46 percent) do not even meet the minimum recommendation of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week. The most sedentary are the 18 to 29 year olds. They increasingly spend their free time on the computer in social networks.

Compared to the first survey in 2010, germans live a less healthy life. Two years ago, 14 percent of the interviewees scored with a sensible lifestyle, now it is only eleven percent. For the representative study by the private insurance company, the university asked around 3,000 people in march and april about their daily lives: how much they exercise, what they eat, how stressed they feel and how they deal with alcohol and cigarettes. The interviewers calculated their health statistics from this self-reported information.

Restaurant “dornroschen” in schonsreuth rebuffs with request

"The patience thread is already very tense", building committee member frank rubner gave on wednesday to consider. Once again, a building application around the restaurant "dornroschen" was topic of the building and environment committee, which met in its new composition for the first time. The building application for a new toilet facility in the eaves area as well as a 900-square-meter, completely asphalted parking lot was rejected, just as a current sale of the adjacent city-owned land to the builder was denied.

Instead, there were various requirements for the developer. The topic had already occupied not only the town of lichtenfels, but also the district office and the entire village of schonsreuth: in 2016, permission was granted for the conversion and expansion of an existing residential building into a guesthouse with an outdoor bar area of around 30 square meters. One requirement was also to preserve the neighboring biotope.

"We have found that there are quite of exploitative conditions," says scholz. He reports of construction sites where workers earn their wages "under very hard conditions", which are anyway much lower than actually prescribed. At the end of the day, they had to spend the night "under very unbearable conditions (…), in some mattress camps that do not comply with any of the regulations that we have in germany".
