The dismissal was "the first political victim of a shift to the right in austria", said the head of the austrian journalists’ union on friday. Fear of an attempt to bring the media into line ran through austrian newsrooms. The controversy then took a bizarre turn with jorg haider’s appearance on the n-tv program "talk in berlin". There he said that he wanted to campaign for the reinstatement of the expert journalist gerhard marschall.

The german public was able to see for itself in this broadcast, which has since come to be seen as the "peak of embarrassment" the german public was able to get a picture of haider as a manipulator of public opinion. For in the exchange of blows with freimut duve – one of the few on the program who at least tried to stand up to him – the next turn immediately followed. The condition for haider’s commitment, haider said, was that the sdp media expert and osce representative would in return support the addition of nationwide terrestrial private television in austria. No wonder haider considered the talk show a success. "He was able to say what he wanted to say, he rejoiced" today according to spiegel online.

They know it, but they do it anyway. The veil of opacity of web2.0 filters their concerns. They say: we can’t do anything about it anyway.

New top model renault twingo gt

Koln, 7. June 2016 – renault present the twingo gt as a new "sporty top version" of his rear motor city car. Certainly, this spared variant finally works the driving dynamic peculiarities of the rear motor characteristic a bit out. The twingo has so far destroyed us completely in this regard.

Good driving performance will expect to expect 110 hp thickened 898 cubic centimeters of measuring gasoline engine with turbocharging. The twingo gt is exempting itself at the twin’run study, with which renault 2013 appetite wanted to make the twingo. Audience premiere is on the goodwood festival of speed of 23. To 26. June, market launch in germany in autumn.

Preserved three-cylinder

This also increases the maximum torque to 170 nm. In addition, the transmission graduation of the dual-clutch transmission was adapted to the performance characteristic.


The 10. And 11. October 2013 is, according to the adac, a sensible way to make road users aware of the dangers of speeding. As part of the campaign, which in bavaria even lasts a week, the police control the speed with mobile measuring devices. As a rule, the locations where the speed cameras will be used are announced in advance. "Such campaigns help to raise awareness among car and motorcycle drivers of the dangers of speeding", says adac president peter meyer.

"It is important that the police clarifies and informs immediately after the decease. Experience has shown that if an anonymous fine notice reaches the traffic sensor only weeks later, this has hardly any lasting effect", according to meyer. According to the adac, the widespread announcement of the speed camera marathon and the announcement of the measuring points in the media make an important contribution to improving traffic safety. As recently as 1991 "not adjusted speed" the cause of 84.000 serious accidents with personal injury. By 2012, this number had fallen to 34,000 – also a result of intensive road safety work by the police and organizations such as adac.

According to adac, traffic control must be primarily the task of the police. In the club’s view, stationary measuring stations in municipal areas in particular are more likely to serve to fill empty coffers than to improve road safety. For example, speed cameras are often used at exit signs instead of at particularly critical locations in front of schools or kindergartens.
