How does the train go through volkmarode??

How does the train go through volkmarode??

Many people in Volkmarode were caught cold by the route plans of the city administration. Because opposition to a rail line seemed successful in 2013. A citizens' initiative had formed against the construction of the line. A little later it was said: Trams are not worth it there. And now this: streetcar is well worth it. In Volkmarode, the construction of the track is even to begin.

This more than irritated many citizens. Finally, only recently there was a study based on the model of standardized assessment. It determines whether federal or state grants are to be expected. Important allowances. Because they drop construction costs by at least 50 percent and make a streetcar line affordable for a community in the first place.

Because the federal government and the state ame: If a route does not pay off economically, and the municipality still wants to build it – then the municipality should build quietly – but without subsidies.

Why fires keep happening on ships

Why fires keep happening on ships

It happened on Thursday, 3. January, around six in the morning. The container freighter "Yantian Express" of the shipping line Hapag-Lloyd plowed under German flag course northwest through the heavy seas of the churned up North Atlantic, when from a container suddenly fire clouds came out.

Flames spread to neighboring containers, and within a very short time, the crew faced a dangerous container fire that threatened to spread to the entire ship. In the middle of dark nowhere. More than 1000 kilometers away from the rescuing country, a near-fatal inferno.

The crew was evacuated by tugboats, and the freighter was left burning on the high seas for days. It was not until six days after the outbreak, when two salvage ships had continuously cooled down the freighter with extinguishing guns, that Hapag-Lloyd was able to report that the fire on the "Yantian Express" had been largely extinguished.
