Dudenhoffer: oversized cars cause acceptance problems

According to car expert ferdinand dudenhoffer, the increasing number of particularly heavy and coarse cars could lead to acceptance problems for manufacturers.

Especially in the cities, many people felt threatened, and the particularly rough models led to discussions with bicyclists, parents and other burghers. According to an analysis of registration figures, 227 vehicles were registered last year.000 passenger cars with an empty weight above 2000 kilograms were registered, as the head of the private CAR institute reported. Nearly half of them are suvs like the BMW X7, landrover, mercedes GLS or audi Q8.

Dudenhoffer referred to france, where an extra vehicle tax is planned for particularly heavy cars weighing more than 1800 kilograms. Manufacturers in germany and other countries face a similar threat if they do not change their ways. The emeritus professor also recommended that manufacturers refrain from using them in view of the threat of CO2 fines and damage to their image. "When in markets like the USA or china the big ships are booming and bringing in glittering profits, one should not lightly bring these vehicles into the narrow european cities. Premium buyers will find it difficult to buy branded products that are associated with social acceptance problems."

"Upper franconia and lower franconia mingle. Take the opportunity to introduce yourselves to each other", called walter schweinsberg. The spokesman for the management of the upper franconia media group – and thus also of the saale newspaper – had invited guests to the reception after the "master concert" asked. And they came: customers and business partners from the entire circulation area between bayreuth and wildflecken, as well as representatives from politics, business, churches and culture.

"We have just experienced a wonderful concert. I am still very touched", said schweinsberg. He buried especially jiri belolahvek, magdalena mullerperth, alban gerhardt and kari kahl-wolfsjager , to whom he presented gifts.

"One of our company values is a love of our homeland. As a regional media house, we have close ties with franconia. The success of our company depends to a large extent on the understanding of the regions, the people, their cultures, their strengths, their weaknesses, their idiosyncrasies", schweinsberg said: "we are proud to be active in this region and to be able to set impulses."

For one school day, everything revolved around apples

On the last day of school before the autumn vacations, it was all about the crunchy, round vitamin bomb. The students at the marktleugast school experienced just how versatile an apple is in various workshops and during free play in the auditorium.

Apple juice pressed

Apples were freshly squeezed and the juice drunk immediately, it was made into a delicious soup together with kurbissen and shuffled with relish. It could be enjoyed as applesauce in a waffle cup or dipped in chocolate on a spit. In addition, the children learned how this fruit develops from blood to fruit and explored with the song "in my little apple" its structure. They were also allowed to experiment: using the apple battery, they made a light-emitting diode glow.

Apple trail

In addition, the participants had to complete a challenging course with an apple on a spoon. Towers were also allowed to be built with it. A treasure chest of how many apples were in it rounded off the activities.

France's environment minister announces resignation

French environment minister nicolas hulot (63) has announced his resignation and put head of state emmanuel macron under massive pressure. Lobbies are present in the circles of power, hulot criticized blatantly on the radio station france inter, where he announced his withdrawal live.

"I make the decision to leave the government."France is taking small steps in the environmental field that are not sufficient. Hulot, who comes from the environmental movement, took office 15 months ago with the center-right government of prime minister edouard philippe and is considered popular among the population, according to surveys. "This is a personal decision he made this morning," macron reacted coolly during a state visit to copenhagen. Hulot is a free man: "I respect his freedom."He wants to continue to rely on hulot’s commitment in the future.

As a symbolic victory, hulot was able to chalk up the fact that the government completely abandoned the planned major airport near nantes in western france. Philippe announced he would make proposals to macron in the coming days for the composition of the government. Culture minister francoise nyssen (67), who came under pressure following revelations about unauthorized renovations to the publishing house she used to run, is also considered to be in trouble.
