The details of a terrible accident that claimed the lives of young spouses and their young children have become known. Let us remind you that everything happened late in the evening in the Beloretsk region of Bashkiria. There, at about 11 pm, on the 151st kilometer of the Ufa-Inzer-Beloretsk highway, the Volkswagen Polo car collided with an oncoming Man truck, after which the mangled foreign car was thrown into a ditch. Everyone who was in the cabin of a foreign car was instantly killed.

According to eyewitnesses of the accident, it was raining heavily that evening. The road was very wet and slippery, so the Volkswagen driver simply lost control of the bend, and therefore flew into the oncoming lane. The driver did not go for any overtaking, risking his family’s life.

– It was a fatal accident. A passenger car skidded into the rain on a bend and drifted into the oncoming lane. The truck driver didn’t even have time to react. Now he is in severe shock and is waiting for a tow truck, – said a friend of the truck driver “Man”.

– Last night, we saw this family at a gas station, the girl managed to ride a scooter. Mom and son were standing next to them. When calculating, I wished them a good journey. So nice, polite, smiling. And now I came home from work, looked at the phone … Oh my god …. Before my eyes is a girl on a scooter, a doll! It was not night … Evening … They were already practically at home. We were the last ones who saw them and who took them on the road – gas station worker Almira G., who spoke with her family shortly before the accident, cannot hold back her tears.

According to the regional State Traffic Inspectorate, police officers, an ambulance and other emergency services worked at the scene. On the fact of the fatal road accident, proceedings have begun.

The head of the Beloretsk region, Andrei Ivanyuta, also commented on the tragedy and expressed condolences to the relatives of the deceased family.

– The Ufa-Inzer-Beloretsk highway does not forgive mistakes. Even a slight speeding can turn into a terrible tragedy. Now, in the off-season, this road becomes especially dangerous. On the passes, the road, wet from rains, will begin to freeze, and drivers will need to drive cars very carefully, – the head of the district addressed the drivers.


As it became known later, a whole family died in a broken foreign car – young spouses from Beloretsk Vlad and Nina I., as well as their little children of three and five years old. All of them received injuries incompatible with life and died on the spot before the arrival of doctors. Friends and relatives speak of the dead as kind and sympathetic people who enjoyed life, made plans for the future and loved each other very much, treasured their family.

As the father of the deceased 27-year-old woman said, the wife and children were returning home from Ufa, where they went to meet the head of the family.

– Vlad flew in from Moscow, he worked there, and the children were terribly bored, they were looking forward to dad. He brought them gifts, he wanted to please the children. These gifts all along the road then lay … – the man cannot hold back his tears.

Gifts bought for children were scattered all over the road

KP-Ufa expresses its sincere condolences to the relatives of the deceased family.


The most beneficial drink for the brain named


17 Sep 2020.

Constant changes in weather conditions and a decrease in daylight hours in autumn adversely affect the functions of the brain. To support the main organ of the central nervous system, German doctors recommend drinking pomegranate juice. It has been called supremely beneficial for improving brain function and protecting against neurological impairment, according to Fit for Fun magazine.

Pomegranate juice lowers cholesterol levels, maintains active brain functions, strengthens the immune system and prevents cardiovascular diseases. It’s all about the high content of polyphenols – a group of secondary plant substances. They are powerful anti-inflammatories and help with diseases affecting the brain.

In a study carried out on laboratory animals, the substances contained in pomegranate have shown a protective effect against neurodegenerative pathologies, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s diseases. According to experts, daily consumption of pomegranates and pomegranate juice protects gray cells from chronic damaging factors.

Medical evidence suggests that nearly a quarter of all infant deaths are due to hypoxic-ischemic damage, which occurs due to restriction of blood flow and oxygen to their brains. However, the use of pomegranate juice by expectant mothers can get rid of this anomaly, and no unforeseen circumstances will arise at the birth of a child.

Formerly LIVE24 reportedthat many people are faced with high blood pressure, which, if not properly treated and lifted, can be fatal. There is systolic and diastolic pressure – this is an indicator at the time of maximum tension of the heart and during its relaxation between beats. With high systolic pressure, the walls of the arteries are under severe stress, which can lead to stretching or even rupture.


The Fiat-PSA agreement loses ambition but also uncertainty | Opinion

The marriageable couple Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Peugeot maker PSA can finally walk down the aisle. The Jeep maker has agreed to cut a huge dividend linked to its planned merger by nearly half, but its shareholders will get more savings and shares in parts maker Faurecia. The change will boost the balance of the future Stellantis group and will eliminate the anguish that persists in the operation.

Moderation in the Covid-19 era makes sense on multiple levels. By reducing an originally planned 5.5 billion payment to € 2.9 billion, Fiat admits the inevitable: that it needs to preserve cash in the pandemic.

It also eliminates the threat of a challenge from PSA shareholders to the terms of the original deal. Fiat has been burning cash in the crisis. Paying himself a huge bonus would also have been odd after he obtained a € 6.3 billion loan backed by the Italian state, the biggest help of the crisis for a European carmaker.

Fiat shareholders are being compensated by other means. Under the terms of the revised deal revealed Monday, PSA will distribute its 46% stake in auto parts maker Faurecia to all Stellantis shareholders, rather than just PSA’s. This means that FCA investors will get 50% of that stake of around 2,500 million euros of current market value, or almost 1,300 million, in addition to the 2,900 million euros of cash dividend.

Even adding Faurecia shares, Fiat investors appear to be € 1.3 billion short of the original dividend plan. But they can get an optional dividend of 500 million later. And they have been promised that their share of the annual savings will be worth at least 5 billion euros, more than originally estimated at 3.7 billion euros and that it will amount to about 35 billion once they are taxed and capitalized.

Tuesday’s rally in Fiat shares reflects in part the fact that its shareholders could have expected a stronger blow to send the ball of the deal flying over the net. But it is also driven by much greater confidence in its completion.

At current market prices, the merger spread between the two stocks has dropped below 4% from almost 12% prior to the announcement of the deal. That’s the value of removing a large dose of distress.

Highlights of COVID-19

The remarkable thing about the pandemic has shown the advancement of science, at a clinical and molecular level. With the new knowledge, the urgent obligation to intervene in the behavior of people, their mobility and the reduction of contacts, the increase of care for people with greater risk with the increase of family and community solidarity has been defined, observing a global recognition of public health. Think not only individually, but in the well-being of others, give more to those who do not have, understanding that illness and health reach us all. Spiritual values ​​are increased over materials

Preserving life as the most important thing in existence, with an obligatory stop along the way for reflection, with the rebirth of good customs and hygienic-sanitary behaviors, highlighting hand washing, and cough and sneeze labels . I hope the cleaning of areas, surfaces and objects will become a permanent obligation for the benefit and better control of communicable diseases. The improvement in health knowledge with the participation of governments, leaders and a large number of citizens, around updated medical knowledge, with greater participation of unions, merchants, politicians and in general of almost all components of the communities is important. , for support in decisions and new regulations.

There has been a great improvement in record time in medical care, staff preparation, hospital facilities, staffing, mainly in intensive care areas. Although the response of some EAPB or EPS has been defective, for outpatient care, intense modifications are expected for the future.

Despite some controversial measures, the country shows some indicators that the pandemic has entered a decline in the cities where it was initially causing more damage. Decrease in deaths, although the number of infections still persists and grows in some populations.

The desire to reactivate activities does not seem to wait, due to the enormous economic and psychological damages, it is feared that, as has happened in other countries, the lack of self-care and non-compliance with the rules could lead us to a phase of regression to the epidemic Hence, the most important of the good is to restart activities with compliance with the rules. Preserving a health system armed by urgency, social distancing, epidemiological fences in growing sectors, reinforcing cities that are not properly strengthened, and having the hope of a vaccine in whose advanced phase we must participate.

Recognizing that health workers have been the heroes of this pandemic creates merit so that their work is finally rewarded with dignity.

The criticisms and mistakes made must be clarified and corrected so as not to commit them again, evaluating them is an obligation to guide the path of COVID-19 disasters.

Chemnitz, in search of a new future

“Proletarians of all countries, unite ! “ On the Brückenstrasse, it is an unavoidable reference. All the people of Chemnitz know the “Nischl “. In front of the facade adorned with the famous slogan of communism, engraved in four languages, the bronze bust of Karl Marx, the work of Russian sculptor Lev Kerbel, opened in 1971, is part of the decor.

Thirty years after the reunification, the ex-cited model of the GDR, which had been renamed Karl-Marx Stadt in may 1953, has recovered economically from the shock of the reunification. After the exodus of 25% of the population in the 1990s, the city has sought its future in the industry and subcontracting in automotive, construction machinery and information technology, an effort crowned by the installation of several large companies such as Siemens and Volkswagen. The technical university and the research institutes provide an environment conducive to innovation.

The image of a marker from the nazis

“Chemnitz had gone up the slope when the violence of the summer of 2018 are returned we paste the image of a den of nazis “, regrets Martin Bauch, a professor at the university of applied sciences. “Maybe he needed this shock to wake people up. “ Chemnitz does not forget the overheated atmosphere of the days of riots that followed the violent death of the carpenter Daniel Hillig (read the guides). On the sidewalk, at the bottom of the statue of Karl Marx, a candle and some flowers to adorn a plate sealed into the concrete with this simple inscription “Daniel H. 26.08.2018 “.

“It all started in the 1990’s “, the scientist explains Dominik Intelmann, a specialist in urban geography from the extreme right. “As in other cities of East Germany, a scene-nazi was born in Chemnitz in the Plattenbau “, these large housing complexes in precast concrete, built under the GDR. Neighborhoods immersed in a sharp break by the end of the German democratic Republic, quickly abandoned by all those who wanted to try their luck in the West.

In January 1998, Uwe Böhnhardt, Uwe Mundlos and Beate Zschäpe, the trio of the NSU (Nationalsozialistischer Untergrund), a terrorist group of extreme right-wing, found refuge in an apartment of the district, Fritz-Heckert, the last major housing construction programme of the late 1970s. The former youth club Piccolo served as the meeting point of the movement neo-nazi.

The “children after the turning point,” faced with the silence of their parents

“The lack of opportunities and violence have shaped the “Nachwendekind”, “children after the turning point, faced with the silence of their parents, put in the requirement of solder from one day to the next day all their past “, explains the writer Lukas Rietzschel, 26 years. “Some have merged in the new company. Others are left unemployed. Move from the status of citizen to that attended has been difficult to live with. I’ve seen what it did to my friends to see a world die, the widespread feeling of being on the losing side. “

After the fall of the wall, the inhabitants of these cities-dormitories were left to fend for themselves. The housing companies decided that the buildings to be demolished as part of urban redevelopment. Separation, depression, loss of landmarks. “Born to be a victim, it takes time to understand that where we live, people like us can only cash out’, sings Felix Kummer, 30 years old, born in Chemnitz, a few months before the fall of the wall, in the last album of Kratfklub. This group of rap rock local, established at the end of 2009 by five schoolmates, was performed in front of 65,000 people, in a concert against the violence of the extreme right, in September 2018.

A new creative class

Chemnitz has rapidly modernized under the leadership of the municipality. In the city centre, a new population is found in the gardens neighbourhood, the space of co-working, bio supermarkets and vegetarian restaurants. At the same time, the number of foreigners has more than doubled between 2013 and 2018, rising from 9 500 to 20 000, including 6,000 refugees. A “revolution” from the top down, which arouses mixed feelings in some part of the population.

Pro Chemnitz, the right-wing movement, created in 2009 by Martin Kohlmann, 42 years old, a lawyer and former member of the united nationalist Republikaner (Republicans), and obtained 7.7% of the votes in the municipal elections of may 2019, compared to 17.9% in the far-right party Alternative for Germany (AfD). “The people of Chemnitz did not want to share with foreigners who come to receive aid without providing their services “, loose Nico Köhler, 44 years, head of the AfD group in the municipal assembly.

The issue of foreigners in the background

“The old parties do not defend Chemnitz “, adds this former member of the CDU, the boss of a marketing agency. After claiming a confinement more strict, the extreme-right party, is paralyzed by its internal conflicts and the supervision of its radical wing by the federal Office for protection of the Constitution (BfV), attempted, without great success, to recover those criticizing the slowness of the déconfinement. “The issue of foreigners is passed to the second plan “, comments on Martin Bauch. “This is the revival of the economy and jobs that concern people at this time. “

On the Stefan Heym-Platz, the State Museum of archaeology of the Land of Saxony, installed in may 2014 in the building of a former department store, built in the 1920s, has reopened its doors on Tuesday 5 may. Three millennia, exposed in accelerated on three floors, from the time of the early hunters and gatherers there are almost 300, 000 years, until the beginning of industrialization. “People often speak badly of the city where they live, stigmatized as a nest of right-wing or a city of old, but Chemnitz has a scene with a very active group of entrepreneurs, artists, teachers and professionals of the culture, with people very engaged as the family Kummer or Lars Fassmann “, says Attila Bihari, project manager at the museum.

Involve the silent majority

Lars Fassmann, 44, founder of Chemmedia AG, a company of training online, has bought the buildings doomed to demolition in the district of Sonnenberg, in the north-east of the city centre, to put them at the disposal of artists and creative professionals. “The challenge is to act as multipliers by creating interfaces to engage the silent majority that has lost confidence in the system “, explains Ulf Kahlscheid, director of the gallery Borssenanger.

European capital of culture

“Chemnitz has experienced fractures, it has changed its name several times and the system, but it has always overcome challenges,” insists Barbara Ludwig, 58, mayor, social democratic party of the city. “We are not afraid of novelty and experimentation. The change is part of our DNA. “

In post for fourteen years, the old professor is not standing in the elections on 20 September, but it relies on the application of Chemnitz as the european capital of culture in 2025, to dissipate “the veil of prejudice “ that surrounds his city, the opportunity for a new start “open minds and create spaces “.


The trauma of August 2018

In August 2018, in Chemnitz (Saxony), far-right activists are engaged in a man hunt against refugees in the streets, in retaliation for the murder of Daniel Hillig, a German 35 years old, stabbed to death in the night from 25 to 26 August, during an altercation with asylum seekers. A series of violent demonstrations against the extreme right followed.

In a few days, this town of 240,000 inhabitants becomes the epicenter of a political crisis. Hans-Georg Maassen, the head of the domestic intelligence in germany, the federal Office for the protection of the Constitution, creates a scandal by questioning the reality of man-hunts. Given early retirement, the senior employee has joined the Union of values, a collective ultraconservateur founded in 2017 within the CDU.

A year after the fact, the German justice sentenced, on 22nd August 2019, Alaa Sheikhi, a Syrian, 24 years of age, at nine and a half years in prison. Considered as the main responsible, an Iraqi 22-year-old, on the run since a year despite an international arrest warrant, would have succeeded in returning to Iraq.
