“A rough, never-ending love scene”

No, no and again no! Today I must not rest, for 149 years ago today, perhaps the most decisive encounter in richard wagner's life took place in munich, a life which, as is well known, was by no means lacking in decisive encounters: on the afternoon of 4. May 1864 king ludwig ii received me. In the munich residence, the poet-composer, whose writings and works he had admired from an early age and whom, after he had become king of bavaria at the age of only eighteen, he had sought from a high-ranking court official, was dear to him. Wagner had just fled from vienna at that time because of his debts.

Because wagner's two-volume autobiography my life just on 3. The letter of may 1864 ends, but in his own words there are only brief comments about this legendary meeting. That same day, at the hotel bayerischer hof, he wrote to his mother's friend eliza wille, with whom he had just spent a few days in swiss safety:

"dearest friend! I would be the most ungrateful person if i did not immediately report my boundless happiness to you! You know that the young king of bavaria loves to visit me. Today I was taken to him. He is, alas, so beautiful and spiritual, soulful and glorious, that I fear that his life must be lost like a cursed goddess's dream in this common world. He loves me with the intimacy and ardor of first love: he knows and knows all of me, and understands me as my soul. He wants me to stay with him forever, to work, to rest, to carry out my works; he wants to give me everything I need for this; I am to finish the nibelungen, and he will carry them out as I wish. I am to be my absolute master, not a bandmaster, nothing but me and his friend. And he understands everything seriously and exactly, as if we both, I and she, were talking to each other. All need shall be taken from me, I shall have what I need – only with him shall I stay. What do you say? – what do you say? – it is not unheard of? – this can be other than a dream? – think how moved I am! A thousand heartfelt greetings! My luck is so rough that I am quite shattered by it. You cannot imagine the magic of his eye: if only it remains alive; it is a miracle that is too unimaginable!" And in the postscript it still says: "do not spread anything! Nothing in the newspapers! Everything is intimate and should remain so!"

Strong june in the retail sector – sales up significantly

Strong June in the retail sector - sales up significantly

Strong business in the summer drove sales for germany’s retailers in the first half of the year. In june, retailers generated 5.3 percent more sales than a year ago, as reported by the german federal statistical office.

If price increases are excluded, sales grew by 3.0 percent in real terms. However, june 2018 had one more sales day than the same month last year. In the first half of the year, sales rose by 3.0 percent in nominal terms and by 1.4 percent in real terms.

The trade association HDE, however, steamed too high expectations. The general conditions are still good, especially the situation on the labor market. "However, the HDE consumer barometer in july clearly showed that the uncertainties in connection with the trade dispute between the eu and the u.S., as well as the disputes within the federal government, have unsettled consumers," argued chief executive stefan genth.

Tuna for 2.7 million euros auctioned in japan

Tuna for 2.7 million euros auctioned in Japan

The 278-kilogram animal was bought by the sushi zanmai restaurant chain on saturday at the first auction this year at the new fish market in the japanese capital. The fish had been caught in oma, one of the country’s best tuna fishing grounds, at the northern tip of the main island of honshu.

Nowhere is bluefin tuna eaten as much as in japan. Overfishing, which has long been the subject of international criticism, has led to the species’ existence being severely threatened.

Kiyoshi kimura, president of the restaurant chain, had already bought the most expensive tuna at the first auction of the year from 2012 to 2017. In 2013 he paid the record price of about 1.26 million euros for a 222 kilogram bluefin tuna, which was valid until the end of the year.

750.000 Euros for the bamberg youth hostel

In bamberg’s burgerpark hain, the larkspur, also known as haingoger, conjures up colorful carpets on the forest floor, but on the other side of the river the spring awakening is somewhat different than usual. Currently, 26 asylum seekers live here, most of whom have fled to germany from the russian foderation. But the intermezzo as a refugee center, which the city council decided on last december due to a lack of alternatives, won’t last too much longer.

Already in summer an alternative offers itself. As ralf haupt reported to the city council, around 20 additional places in the house at ludwigstrabe 14 are expected to be available for asylum seekers from july onwards. The government wants to rent the property together with the neighboring house at ludwigstrabe 16, which is already being used as a refugee shelter, as a collective housing facility. According to christian wonka from the real estate management office, the necessary reconstruction will be carried out with high pressure. A move of refugees from the grove to ludwigstrabe could take place directly afterwards.

In the meantime, the finance senate has decided against one vote to set an important course for the future of the former boathouse, which has been used for decades as a youth hostel. All factions voted to divert 750,000 euros from the surprising surplus of the annual accounts for the budget year 2012, a total of 4.9 million euros, for the planned renovation of the popular guesthouse. Only mayor werner hipelius (CSU) fears that the decision could result in a shortage of money for the planned renovation of the schools.

Why philately will never die out in france

Why philately will never die out in france

Max and moritz on a stamp appealed so much to lorenz neubauer, who was nine years old at the time, that he held the letter under steam to carefully loosen the stamp and then stored it in a matchbox. That’s when neubauer’s passion for collecting began. In the meantime he has several thousand stamps and time documents.

But for years, the letters have been replaced by e-mails and text messages. Is philately dying out with digital media?? "No, that never happens", affirms lorenz neubauer, chairman of the philatelic association in forchheim, and receives equally strong approval from reinhard kuchler, managing director of the federation of german philatelists.

Marche as a knowledge mediator

There are two reasons for this clear statement: the large number of stamps that are still being issued and the knowledge transfer that stands behind each stamp. "There are 250 to 280 states, territories or colonies that still issue stamps. The federal ministry of finance, which has issued the stamps since the privatization of the post office, puts between 50 and 55 issues on the market every year. In the 50’s and 60’s there were fewer issues, about 20, but the stamps in higher circulation", female kuchler. Before the privatization of the post office, the circulation was 30 million pieces, now it is only 5 million pieces. This did not make them more valuable. "Fewer are consumed", says kuchler.

A plan and a criminal complaint

A plan and a criminal complaint

Seven stories, 170 rooms: such a hotel could be built at the anger if the city provides the building land and the corresponding plans are approved.

The draft is to be presented today, wednesday, to the construction and environment senate in a closed session. Yesterday, the finance senate discussed in private the question of whether the city would make the land on ketschendorfer strabe available for use. The signals after the meeting seem to have been positive for the investors. It was not possible to find out anything more concrete than that, because after views of a possible hotel were leaked to the media last week, there is a certain sense of alarm in the city administration.

Mayor norbert tessmer (SPD) has filed criminal charges against unknown persons, as he confirmed on tuesday evening. The fact that the pictures were leaked to the media was a breach of trust. When it comes to investors and real estate deals, it’s "confidential according to the company’s rules, and you have to stick to them". Accordingly, information from non-public meetings may only be disclosed if this has been expressly decided upon.

The first dancing lesson more than once regretted

The first dancing lesson more than once regretted

Dancing? Matze must have completely lost his mind. I don't dance. Could it be any more uncool? He loves but does not loosen. There were a lot of madels at the dance class. Na and? The whole school was full of madels. They were everywhere, so why dance class?? Because the girls are crazy for boys who can dance properly! Real? Yes. I really did not want to learn to dance.

The hope was still, that my parents would not print out the money for it. After all, if I remember correctly, it was about a whopping 130 marks. That's how the money used to be. And 130 units of this was something to do in the 70s. Just for comparison. The pack of cigarettes cost three marks (equal to one euro fifty).

After the oil crisis, the price of gasoline had shot up from around 60 pfennigs per liter in 1972 to over 80 pfennigs in 1976. That was a real upset. Today it was less than 50 cents. Anyway, we should want to dance. I don't know if there was more than one dance school at the time. We knew only one, where apparently all learned the controlled collective hopsasa. My parents were overwhelmed by the stupid idea. It was never easier to wrest such an amount from them. They really squeezed the dough out of me! And we were already thinking out loud about what I was going to wear to the prom. Ball? Does the madness know no bounds?
