With pesic comes confidence: “180-degree turn”

Even in his little joke, heiko schaffartzik mixes in a little reverence for svetislav pesic. With a mischievous grin, the captain of the german basketball team was handed the microphone by the national coach after the 68:57 win against georgia. "Thank you coach. He does everything for us," said schaffartzik in leipzig after the micro-transfer during the press conference on the successful dress rehearsal for the upcoming european championship qualifiers. "He demands a lot, but he also gives a lot."

With his singing and his guitar he inspired the audience, especially when he played "route 66" intoned.

But the musicians are simply so good that they harmonized perfectly nevertheless, what you can hear with pieces like "spotlight" noticed.
Torsten gutknecht was happy to come to play music with thomas fink in herzogenaurach. After all, it’s almost his home, because he lived in buchenbach for a number of years. "You stay here, don’t move to berlin", goods jokes with fink. Goods had the "work song" among others nat adderley included him in the program, which also featured him as a vocal soloist. Of course, the whole thing was agreed only a short time before, how could it be otherwise?.
In the second half of the program, president jean karalis also played flugelhorn and trumpet. Pieces like "misty or "girl from ipanema filled the space.

The audience liked it in any case, as the applause showed. Everyone is already looking forward to the next opportunity to listen to thomas fink and his teammates.

Stress during commuting triggers psychological problems in schoolchildren

Commuting is often associated with stress. A recent study by the frankfurt university of applied sciences shows that this even has a negative impact on schoolchildren. It surveys around 10,000 schools in 14 federal states every year. In the 2016/17 school year, the focus was on getting to school: according to the study, young people need an average of 27 minutes to get to school. For the majority (30 percent), it takes between 10 and 20 minutes, but around 15 percent need 45 minutes or more. 14 percent need less than 10 minutes to get there.

Young people who have to travel a long way to school are more likely to complain of psychological problems, explains the study’s director prof. Andreas klocke. So just under 30 percent of schools with a long way to school have concentration problems on more than one day a week. For children with a short way to school (less than ten minutes), it is 23 percent.
