Vom Zuckerrohr zu Plastikkulturen. Andalusiens Landwirtschaft 1992 und 2021

1992 war Einar Schlereths Reportage ein Abgesang auf den Anbau von Zuckerrohr in Andalusien. Heute wachsen im Süden Spaniens andere Früchte für ganz Europa. Von Einar Schlereth und Reinhard Spiegelhauer Moderation: Juliane Eisenführ Als Einar Schlereth 1992 in Andalusien unterwegs war, konzentrierte sich der Tourismus mehr noch als heute auf die Region westlich von Málaga. Nach Torremolinos und Marbella kamen damals schon Heerscharen von Gästen. In die einsamen Berge der Alpujarras verirrten sich nur wenige Wanderer - und auch ihnen, so berichtete es Einar Schlereth, fiel kaum auf, dass es weiter unten, Richtung Küste, große Zuckerrohrfelder und Fabriken mit schlanken, hohen Schornsteinen gab. Bis 1992 wurde in Andalusien Zuckerrohr angebaut, dann endete eine Tradition, die 900 Jahre vorher von den Arabern systematisch begründet wurde. Geblieben ist bis heute die Liebe der Andalusier zu Zuckerzeug. Museum in Motril errinert an Zuckerrohranbau Reinhard Spiegelhauer, ARD-Korrespondent in Madrid, sieht nicht selten selbst in der viel weiter nördlich gelegenen Hauptstadt Spaniens erwachsenen Männer mit Lollis im Mund... An den Zuckerrohranbau in Andalusien erinnert heute vor allem ein Museum in der Hafenstadt Motril. Einar Schlereth erlebte 1992 dessen Aufbau - und besuchte die letzte Zuckerrohrfabrik Europas im nahen Salobreña kurz bevor auch sie geschlossen wurde. Die Arbeitsbedingungen, die ihm damals die Männer schilderten, die mit ihren Maultieren das Zuckerrohr ernteten, waren hart; Arbeitszeiten von 7 Uhr früh bis 21 Uhr am Abend waren die Regel. Viel zu verdienen war nicht - aber es waren Jobs in der Heimatregion. An den schwierigen Bedingungen in der andalusischen Landwirtschaft hat sich bis heute nicht viel geändert, ergänzt Reinhard Spiegelhauer. Heute: Plastik-Gewächshäuser in Region Almería Heute sind es vor allem die Plastik-Gewächshäuser in der Region um Almeria, in denen Gurken, Tomaten, Paprika und vieles mehr für ganz Europa wächst. In diesem gigantischen "mar de plástico" arbeiten heute auch viele Migranten aus Afrika. Der Wasserverbrauch steigt und steigt dabei - in der Landwirtschaft und in Andalusiens zweitem wichtigen Wirtschaftszweig: dem Tourismus. Er hat in Andalusien immer mehr an Bedeutung gewonnen. Nachhaltiger, qualitativ hochwertiger - also hochpreisiger - Tourismus - ist ein Ziel andalusischer Politik. Doch Reinhard Spiegelhauer ist skeptisch, ob so eine Zukunft mit Wohlstand erreicht werden kann. Im früheren "Armenhaus" Spaniens ist zwar die Not nicht mehr so groß wie einst - doch nirgends im Land ist die Arbeitslosigkeit so hoch wie hier - in der riesigen, schönen Region im Süden der spanischen Halbinsel.

Guest: Eric Fisher, Author of Mighty Storms of New EnglandMeteorologist Eric Fisher says there are few places on earth that produce weather like New England. It offers the challenges of blockbuster snowstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, heat waves, frigid cold snaps and dramatic seasonal shifts. Eric just penned a book: “The Mighty Storms of New England - The Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Blizzards, and Floods that Shaped the Region”. He writes that knowing the past is a critical part of understanding and forecasting the weather. The stories in his book describe not only the loss and damage caused by the storms but also the progress made as a result. Perhaps one of the most valuable lessons we can learn from the past is how to better communicate the risks. And Eric is just the meteorologist to talk about this…See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Now we know who is in and who is out, and unless you are a Hardin-Simmons fan, there might not be a lot to complain about with this bracket. Yes, we thought the Cowboys would be in, and surely many people in Texas did so as well, but as it turned out. But the Region 3 committee thought otherwise -- enough so that they even put Randolph-Macon in front of Hardin-Simmons, so Hardin-Simmons never even got to the table for discussion. In other regions, committees made some interesting decisions that ended up boosting the at-large candidacy of teams in their region. Is that fair or is that gaming the system? Plus, what did the committee get right and what did it get wrong? Who gets our game balls from a great weekend in Division III football?

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Samstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Corona: Lage in deutschen Krankenhäusern spitzt sich zu Angesichts der stark steigenden Zahl von Corona-Patienten sind die Kapazitäten auf den Intensivstationen in Deutschland teilweise fast ausgeschöpft. Planbare Operationen müssen verschoben werden, Patienten finden eventuell keine freie Klinik mehr in ihrer Nähe. Für den Kampf gegen die Pandemie sind jetzt wieder kostenlose Schnelltests für alle möglich, die erst vor einem Monat weitgehend abgeschafft worden waren. In einem Aufruf haben 35 Mediziner und Wissenschaftler zu einem Umsteuern in der Corona-Politik aufgefordert. Jeder Tag des Abwartens koste Menschenleben, heißt es. Niederlande und Österreich wollen Infektionen eindämmen Angesichts schnell steigender Corona-Zahlen haben die Niederlande einen Teil-Lockdown beschlossen. Ministerpräsident Mark Rutte kündigte unter anderem an, dass für mindestens drei Wochen Supermärkte, Restaurants und Bars bereits um 20 Uhr schließen müssen. Zu Sportveranstaltungen sind keine Zuschauer mehr zugelassen. Österreichs Regierung will am Sonntag grünes Licht für einen landesweiten Lockdown für Ungeimpfte geben, wie Kanzler Alexander Schallenberg ankündigte. Es sei den Geimpften nicht zuzumuten, in einen weiteren Lockdown für alle zu gehen, ergänzte der Regierungschef. UN-Klimakonferenz geht in die Verlängerung Stundenlange Debatten über ein weltweites Stoppsignal für die Kohle und über mehr Hilfszahlungen an arme Länder haben den Abschluss des Weltklimagipfels in Glasgow ausgebremst. Neue Textentwürfe für die Abschlusserklärung sollen am Samstagmorgen vorgelegt werden. Zu Ende gehen könnte die UN-Konferenz dann wohl frühestens am Samstagnachmittag - statt wie ursprünglich geplant am Freitagabend. Während einigen Staaten die angepeilten Beschlüsse zu weit gehen, sind sie anderen nicht ehrgeizig genug. Umweltverbände warnten vor Verwässerungen in der Abschlusserklärung in letzter Minute. EU hofft auf weniger Migranten an ihrer Außengrenze Die Europäische Union sieht im Konflikt mit Belarus erste Erfolge bei ihren Bemühungen, die Schleusung von Migranten aus dem Nahen Osten zu stoppen. Die Türkei verbot Staatsangehörigen aus Syrien, dem Irak und dem Jemen Abflüge von türkischen Flughäfen nach Minsk. Der Irak kündigte an, in Belarus festsitzende irakische Migranten zurückholen zu wollen. Die EU wirft dem belarussischen Machthaber Alexander Lukaschenko vor, Migranten gezielt an die Grenzen der EU-Staaten Lettland, Litauen und Polen zu schleusen, um damit Vergeltung für Sanktionen zu üben. Merkel und Macron mahnen Stabilität in Libyen an Kanzlerin Angela Merkel hat sich für einen baldigen Abzug ausländischer Kämpfer aus Libyen ausgesprochen. Das dürfe "nicht nur auf dem Papier" geschehen, sagte Merkel zum Abschluss der Internationalen Libyen-Konferenz in Paris. Frankreichs Präsident Emmanuel Macron verlangte insbesondere von der Türkei und Russland, ihre Truppen "umgehend" aus dem nordafrikanischen Land abzuziehen. Deren Präsenz sei eine "Bedrohung der Stabilität und Sicherheit des Landes und der ganzen Region". Die Konferenzteilnehmer riefen auch zu "freien und fairen" Parlaments- und Präsidentenwahlen am 24. Dezember auf. Anklage gegen früheren Trump-Vertrauten Bannon In den USA ist der einstige Chefstratege von Ex-Präsident Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, angeklagt worden, weil er vor dem Untersuchungsausschuss zur Kapitol-Erstürmung im Januar die Aussage verweigert hatte. Ihm wird außerdem vorgeworfen, dem Gremium angeforderte Dokumente nicht übergeben zu haben, wie das Justizministerium in Washington mitteilte. Der vom Repräsentantenhaus eingesetzte U-Ausschuss soll die genauen Hintergründe der Attacke von Trump-Anhängern aufklären. Bannon gilt dabei als Schlüsselzeuge. Er soll bereits vorab gewusst haben, dass es am 6. Januar zu Gewalt kommt.

From the Press Release:Hunting Bigfoot Opens at Shelton Cinemas; Friday, November 12.The film's star, John Green, will attend the Saturday, November 13, 7 pm screening and take part in a post-screening Q & A.When filmmaker Taylor Guterson (Old Goats, Burkholder) initially contemplated his fourth feature film he knew two things “I wanted to film predominantly outdoors in the Northwest and John Green was going to star in it.”A Northwest native, Guterson loves the outdoors and realized “the natural beauty of this region would give a movie a visual appeal and production value well beyond anything money could buy.”  Guterson had worked with Green before, having cast him in a small role in a previous film in which Green made a definite impression, “After the first take of the first scene John was in, I knew this was someone I could build a feature film around” Guterson recalls.The film which ultimately emerged, Hunting Bigfoot, is a compelling drama (which includes a healthy dose of humor) about a man obsessed by an all-consuming quest to verify the existence of a Sasquatch he claims to have witnessed.  The film introduces the audience to the Bigfoot subculture, featuring interviews with people recounting their Bigfoot encounters and appearances by recognized Bigfoot authorities.But, as Green observes, “the film is about a lot more than Bigfoot.  It's about a human being searching for meaning in his life.  That's what gives it a universal appeal.”Hunting Bigfoot is being released by Xenon Pictures.  Leigh Savidge, Xenon CEO and an Academy Award nominee for his screenwriting work on Straight Outta' Compton, is one of the film's Executive Producers, as is Tom Gorai, whose producing credits include Outsourced, Nostalgia, and Arlington Road.The film's unique distribution strategy initially focuses on a region by region national theatrical rollout partnering primarily with owner-operated independent theatres.  The strategy also includes working with local Chambers of Commerce to encourage local business communities to engage in network marketing and related activities in support of the film.In addition to providing independent theatres a film which is not simultaneously available for streaming at home, a rarity in the current environment, Hunting Bigfoot offers significantly better financial terms than independent theatres typically receive.  “When we say we want to partner with independent theatres in presenting this film we mean it” says Savidge.  “We want them to be engaged and be able to really benefit from its success.”For independent theatres coming off a year plus of Covid-19 restrictions this distribution approach holds a lot of appeal.  “The financial terms and not having to compete with folks being able to stream the same film at home are both very helpful” says Beth Burrows, owner operator of the North Bend Theatre.  She also notes an additional benefit “Their willingness to ask for our input on the best ways to reach our audience and really listen to our advice is a breath of fresh air.”According to Kelly Coughlin, Executive Director of the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce, “Our members are happy to help spread the word because they know a film drawing large audiences at a local theatre means more business for coffee shops, bars, and restaurants, before and after each screening. ““There's nothing more instructive for a filmmaker than to see their work in front of a live audience" says Guterson, who is especially gratified to have Hunting Bigfoot supporting independent theatres like the Shelton Cinemas, "They will immediately let you know what works and what doesn't, and in either case, the energy and engagement are amazing."  Ultimately, observes Guterson, "It's the way movies were meant to be seen.”

Zwischen Frankreich und Großbritannien gibt es Streit um den Fischfang. Heftigen Streit. Anfang des Jahres kreuzten deshalb schon Kriegsschiffe beider Nationen im Ärmelkanal. Nach dem Brexit gibt es keine eindeutige Regelung wer, wo, wieviel fischen darf. Wenn man den Fisch fragen würde, dann wäre der froh, wenn alle Trawler in den Häfen blieben, damit sich die Bestände endlich erholen könnten, denn die gesamte Region ist längst überfischt. Aber um ökologische Aspekte geht es in diesem Streit nicht und eigentlich auch nicht um Fangquoten. Worum dann? Das wollen wir klären. Uns geht es um den Fisch, und deshalb schauen wir auch über den Ärmelkanal hinaus bis in die Kochtöpfe. Kann man noch guten Gewissens Fisch essen?

Supervisor Bea LaPisto Kirtley had the task of providing the new information, such as the next tenant for the former Malloy Ford building on the north side of U.S. 250. (Watch the CAC meeting)“The old Malloy Ford site, that is being renovated and there are permits for signs for Flow Automotive, Flow Volkswagen,” LaPisto Kirtley said. Plans for a new hotel to be built in the parking lot of the Rivanna Ridge Shopping Center have been through two sets of review.“There is an associated special use permit to remove a previous condition for a landscaped buffer where the hotel is planned for,”  LaPisto Kirley said. An additional community meeting will be held on the Overlook Hotel project in the future. Albemarle transit expansion Discover Transit Month may be over, but the input period for Albemarle County’s Transit Expansion Study is still underway. Boris Palchik is with Foursquare ITP, one of the companies hired to conduct the work.“The expansion study is meant to identify short-range opportunities to expand transit service in key population employments in the county,” Palchik said. These are the U.S. 29 north corridor, Pantops, and Monticello.  The study comes at a time when Charlottesville Area Transit is also reviewing its opportunities in the U.S. 29 north area. “While there are a lot of different ways to provide transit service and to improve transit service, each of those ways that we are considering has its own ideal operating environment and when we look at fixed-route transit service which is what CAT operates today, fixed route transit service is really dependent on density,” Palchik said.Another key factor is a functional sidewalk system that allows people to get to and from stops. Palchik said initial work in the study has reviewed existing land use patterns. Fixed-route service is recommended when there is a density of five people or five jobs per acre. Currently the north side of U.S. 250 on Pantops falls short of that threshold, but that could change in the future. The preliminary study recommends an additional fixed-route service in this area. “This additional route, additional fixed-route would serve the growing residential population up there as well as some of the key destinations like the Social Security office,” Palchik said Charlottesville Area Transit has prepared route changes which would eliminate Route 10 service on Stony Point Road. However, there is no date set for when those changes would be made. The preliminary study does not indicate who would run that service but it would require at least one additional vehicle. Another recommendation is study a demand-response service. “Demand-response-service is buses that can come to a passenger wherever they are, sort of a a point to point service that can take them to their home,” Palchik said. This can also be provided by the private sector but micro transit technology is seeking to extend that convenience with public transportation.“The main difference between Uber and Lyft and what we call micro transit in the transit industry is that micro transit has a dedicated fleet of vehicles so you have purpose-built vehicles that are designed for transit service, designed for share rides,” Palchik said. Fares on micro transit would be regulated and more predictable than the cost of private sector rides. The study recommends two vehicles to be operating at any one time. A survey to get additional input is open through November 18. There’s an English and a Spanish version. (take the survey)Biscuit Run ParkLet’s go back in time for a bit further back to the October 21, 2021 meeting of the 5th and Avon Community Advisory Committee. They got an update on planning for the county’s Biscuit Run Park from the Albemarle planners. The county has a long-term ground lease with the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation to operate and build what had been expected to be a state park. Tim Padalino is the county’s parks planner. (download his presentation)“In 2018, the final park master plan was reviewed by the Board of Supervisors at a public hearing and adopted with DCR’s endorsement and blessing,” Padalino said. Currently, the park is not open to the general public. Padalino said that’s because the county does not have the staff to do the necessary maintenance.“And in terms of public safety, there’s no signage and there are no maps for a large, relatively wild and undeveloped landscape, and there’s incomplete cell phone coverage,” Padalino said. The land is mostly undeveloped, which means its serving as a piece of green infrastructure almost entirely covered by forest. “And that’s effectively a carbon sink that’s purifying the air and sequestering carbon dioxide in a way that is supporting the climate action plan,” Padalino said.Work to open the first phase is underway. That includes an entrance into a parking area off of Route 20 about 500 feet south of the southern end of Avon Street Extended. There will be a parking area and bathrooms. “It is one of the county’s top strategic plan goals as identified by the Board of Supervisors, and that’s apparent in that this is a fully-funded project through the county’s Capital Improvement Program,” Padalino said. “The budget is about $2.1 million.” Padalino said if all approvals are granted, construction of this could be completed by the end of next summer. Planning for trails is also underway. There are about nine to ten miles of existing trails. Tucker Rollins is the county’s trail maintenance supervisor. “What we’re hoping to create is a trail system that will make lots of different users happy,” Rollins said. “We’re expecting lots of hikers, trail-runners, mountain-bikers, bird-watchers, lot of native plant folks. So we’re trying to create something that will allow all of these different types of people to get in there and spread out and be happy.”Rollins said the park’s size can accommodate about 35 miles of trails while leaving lots of space to be left untouched. Parks staff has been working with the Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club on a multi-use loop that would be open around the same time the parking lot opens. Planning is also under way for dedicated mountain bike trails, one of which will be funded by CAMBC.  Watch the whole 5th and Avon CAC meeting to review the whole presentation.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Dienstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.USA stoppen nach Militärputsch Wirtschaftshilfe für den Sudan Wegen der Machtübernahme durch das Militär im Sudan setzt die US-Regierung Hilfszahlungen für das ostafrikanische Land vorerst aus. Das Außenministerium erklärte, Hilfen in Höhe von 700 Millionen US-Dollar, die für die Unterstützung des demokratischen Übergangs im Sudan geplant waren, würden vorerst gestoppt. Es forderte, das Militär des Landes müsse alle festgesetzten politischen Akteure freilassen, die zivil geführte Übergangsregierung wieder herstellen und von jeglicher Gewalt absehen. Das Militär im Sudan hatte zuvor die Macht an sich gerissen und den Ausnahmezustand verhängt. USA lassen rigorose Einreisesperre enden In die USA können vom 8. November an wieder Ausländer einreisen, wenn sie vollständig gegen Corona geimpft sind. Präsident Joe Biden habe eine entsprechende Anordnung unterzeichnet, teilte das Weiße Haus in Washington mit. Akzeptiert würden Vakzine, die eine Zulassung oder Notfallzulassung der US-Arzneimittelbehörde FDA oder der Weltgesundheitsorganisation bekommen hätten. Erwachsene müssen ihren Impfstatus der jeweiligen Airline nachweisen, bevor sie ein Flugzeug mit Ziel USA besteigen. Kinder und Jugendliche sind von der Pflicht eines Impfnachweises bei der Einreise ausgenommen. Erdogan rückt von Botschafter-Ausweisung ab Der türkische Staatschef Recep Tayyip Erdoğan hat von der angedrohten Ausweisung von zehn westlichen Botschaftern Abstand genommen. Die Diplomaten - darunter der Deutsche Jürgen Schulz - hätten "einen Rückzieher gemacht", sagte Erdoğan in Ankara. Zuvor hatten die US-Botschaft und andere Vertretungen erklärt, sich nicht in die inneren Angelegenheiten des Gastlandes einzumischen. Erdoğan hatte am Wochenende angekündigt, die Diplomaten zu "unerwünschten Personen" erklären zu lassen - aus Protest gegen deren Solidaritätsbekundung mit dem inhaftierten türkischen Kulturförderer Osman Kavala. Deutscher Bundestag konstituiert sich Einen Monat nach der Bundestagswahl tritt der neue Deutsche Bundestag an diesem Dienstag erstmals zusammen. In der konstituierenden Sitzung wird das Bundestagspräsidium neu gewählt. Der bisherige Parlamentspräsident Wolfgang Schäuble soll von Bärbel Bas abgelöst werden. Die 53-Jährige wurde von den Sozialdemokraten vorgeschlagen, die künftig die stärkste Fraktion stellen. Mit der ersten Sitzung des neuen Parlaments endet die reguläre Amtszeit von Kanzlerin Angela Merkel und ihren Ministerinnen und Ministern. Sie bleiben aber geschäftsführend im Amt, bis eine neue Regierung übernehmen kann. Ausnahmezustand in Ägypten wird nicht verlängert Der ägyptische Präsident Abdel Fattah al-Sisi hat den jahrelangen Ausnahmezustand in seinem Land aufgehoben. Dank seiner "großartigen Bevölkerung" sei Ägypten zu "einer Oase der Sicherheit und Stabilität in der Region" geworden, erklärte der Staatschef wörtlich. Al-Sisi hatte den Ausnahmezustand im April 2017 nach blutigen Bombenanschlägen auf zwei koptische Kirchen verhängt. Dadurch hatten die Sicherheitsbehörden größeren Spielraum bei der Festnahme von Menschen erhalten. Grundrechte wie die Meinungsfreiheit und die Versammlungsfreiheit galten nur eingeschränkt. Facebook und Youtube schränken Nutzerkonten von Brasiliens Präsident ein Wegen eines umstrittenen Videos haben die Online-Netzwerke Facebook und Youtube die Nutzerkonten des brasilianischen Präsidenten Jair Bolsonaro begrenzt. Facebook löschte das fragliche Video, Youtube verhängte eine einwöchige Sperre für den Präsidenten. Das Video habe gegen die eigenen "medizinischen Desinformationsrichtlinien zu COVID-19" verstoßen, teilte Youtube mit. In dem fraglichen Video hatte Bolsonaro behauptet, dass Menschen mit vollständiger Corona-Impfung schneller ein Immunschwächesyndrom entwickeln würden. Diese Behauptung wurde mittlerweile widerlegt.
