Parents should set limits

"Media pedagogy – media consumption – media dependency", this comprehensive topic confronted the addiction work group kulmbach in the district administration office. Camelia fiedler, executive director of the addiction work group, invited two profound speakers, stefan ranninger, lecturer at the state institute for teacher training in bayreuth, and katrin gnamm, social worker at the addiction counseling of the diaconal work of the bayreuth city mission, who made it clear that not only the media landscape is constantly changing, but also its stimuli and impulses.

And adolescents are particularly fond of social networking sites and online games. Constant access via smartphones can lead to problematic, addiction-like developments – which is why parents should get tips on how to talk to their children about the right mab of computer and media use.

Four descents do not scratch silvan kratz

Although keeper silvan kratz has been relegated four times with trailsdorf, he remains loyal to the club from the A-class bamberg 1. The 27-year-old, who was goalkeeper for two seasons at SC adelsdorf, plans to put his teeth together on sunday.

Who alluded to it?
Silvan kratz: my former teammate and school friend tim lausen, with whom i had a great senior year at FC eintracht bamberg and who brought me to adelsdorf back then.

For the meeting of the market town council pretzfeld an application of the hunters' cooperative pretzfeld-hagenbach had been received, that an extension of the path weingarten/geierstob as a paved track should be subsidized with 50 percent by the municipality. Until now, the market had assumed one-third of such costs.
The mayor rose stark (SPD/okologen) informed the committee that the city of ebermannstadt was demanding such mabnahme with 40 percent, and said that the municipalities of the region should proceed similarly. In the past, she had solicited offers for such reductions, but they had not been implemented. In the future, the hunting associations will take care of this themselves.
According to the road and path construction law, the municipality only has to subsidize 25 percent. The council discussed the way forward. Gerhard muhlhauber (CSU/BB) summarized that the majority of the body wants to take a basic decision for the future procedure for applications of the hunting cooperatives for subsidies for renovation and removal of trees on developed, municipally dedicated roads.
Therefore, the individual proposal was rejected for the time being, in order to be able to decide on a basic procedure in the next meeting. It is still open whether the cost share should be 40 or 50 percent.

Population for wastewater

After that the mayor informed that the inhabitants' values will be checked because of the cost sharing for investment decrease of the public utility company forchheim. The market town of pretzfeld discharges its wastewater as a guest via the ehrenbach-weilersbach-gruppe wastewater association into the clearing plant of the city of forchheim. Since 2008, there has been an extensive expansion and modernization of the klaranlage forchheim, which will be completed and settled in 2018. In 2008, the population development was estimated and a population value was decided upon. This was at 3057. However, several designated building sites have not been realized and the value is therefore no longer realistic. The administration estimated that a population of 2800 was realistic. The rate decided even a value of 2700. To this is added a population value of 1000 for the wastewater from the breweries.
During the meeting, the council decided to change the rules of the council. In the future, the market town councils will receive the table papers and transcripts of the non-public meetings together with the invitation to the meeting. Some topics are extensive, so the municipal councils have time to prepare well, rose explained strongly. And it pointed out to the body that documents relating to the closed session could not be disclosed.
At the end strongly informs the committee that the planning for the application to the municipal investment program for the construction of a hoard and the purchase of a new heating system in the school is not to create.
Second mayor walther metzner (WPA) pointed out that something must be done about the heating system in the school, however. Rose stark referred to other demand programs. 

When opera meets young ears

How long will tristan die??!" Eva, twelve years old and a sixth-grader at the eichendorff grammar school in bamberg, is a little surprised. "He was already dead!", she flutters. The schoolgirl doesn't know what to make of the sudden resurrection of the hero, who stabbed himself in the chest on the stage some time ago. Today, for the first time in her life, she is "at the opera" with her classmates from grades 6a and 6b.

Evening dress in the morning
The girls from bamberg have already dressed up for it in the early morning. Glitter and sparkle everywhere. Despite heat of well over 30 degrees, no hot pants alarm anywhere. Class director katrin langfeld is satisfied. ",what do i wear blob?' was really a rough topic in class the last few days", she reveals and smiles while her girls board the bus to bayreuth. Class meets wagner.
The extraordinary cultural program for schoolgirls is organized by "wohrl fur kids" supports. The foundation sponsored tickets and transportation. "We were very happy to accept the offer", according to langfeld. "On the one hand, it's a great experience for the schoolgirls, and on the other hand, it's a reward for the sixth graders who really put in the work for this year's performance of our school musical", she clarifies.
A reward that must first be perceived as such: "I don't really have much of an idea about operations", one of the students admits in advance without hesitation. "I know mozart, beethoven and bach and so on. I play the piano. But I haven't heard anything yet from richard wagner."
That will soon change. The program includes "tristan and isolde". Coarse material for young ears, who will be exposed to completely different sounds on the bus.
The opera will be performed at the bayreuth festival's studio stage IV. The young visitors are presented with a slimmed-down version of the love story. Director michael hoppner and marko zdralek (musical arrangement) have cut richard wagner's four-and-a-half-hour opus down to 90 minutes. 90 minutes in which the schoolchildren get closer to opera stars in a way that adults never do in the festspielhaus.
Too close perhaps? "He spat at me while I was singing!", is the comment of one of the schoolgirls after the performance. "And how they sweated! It was a bit disgusting!"
But that's the way it is – with a room temperature of 40 degrees and everybody sitting in one boat. And in the truest sense of the word: the studio stage is a ship. On the right and left the schoolchildren, in the middle the king's daughter isolde (irene theorin) and her servant brangane (simone schroder), tristan (hans-georg priese) and his henchman kurwenal (jukka rasilainen) as well as the sailor melot (stefan heibach) and king marke (martin snell). Only the conductor boris schafer and his orchestra disappear in the darkness of the studio auditorium.
