Experts: job recovery continues to lose momentum

Many companies continue to be unsettled by the euro debt crisis and are making investments that will also create new jobs. Accordingly, the job upswing had weakened further in august. According to calculations by experts, 2.906 million men and women were out of work during the vacation month; this was around 15,000 more than in july and only 40,000 less than a year ago. The official figures will be published by the bundesagentur fur arbeit (BA) on 30. August announce.

The main reason for the increase was the summer break, emphasized the experts interviewed by dpa. Especially in baden-wurttemberg and bavaria, many companies were still on vacation in august; most of the new employees were not hired until september. Many young people had not yet found a new job after completing their training and continued to register as unemployed.

Nevertheless, according to their assessment, the labor market developed worse than in the midsummer of the past five years: from 2007 to 2011, the number of unemployed people had fallen by an average of just under 3,000 in august. "We are facing a poor third quarter economically. This development is spreading relatively quickly to the labor market," says commerzbank economist eckart tuchtfeld.

Trainer confusion at tsc mainleus

Command back at TSC mainleus: volker katholing, whose appointment was announced two weeks ago, will not be joining the club as a coach after all. The club decided at short notice to make an internal decision: vitor do adro (41) will take over, who was originally intended to be the head coach, but decided against it in favor of kathling. All clear?

So, in order: the search for a coach at the TSC mainleus, after the change of player-coach andre riedel to TSV mistelbach had been known for a long time, dragged on for a long time. According to the words of the sporting director frank daumann, the decision had already been made for vitor do adro, who had supported andre riedel as co-trainer in the past season and had also helped out as a player in case of need.

Then, according to daumann, the solution with volker katholing came about. The obernseeser, who was last active with the JFG hummelgau in the youth range, had offered itself with mainleus – with the promise to bring new players along. "That was interesting for us, because we have a small squad", said the sporting director. The promises, however, were not kept, the newcomers did not come. Daumann: "it is not so easy to get players if you do not put money on the table." Therefore one had separated at short notice in mutual agreement again: "it was amicable, there was no bad word."

Over 700 members in the gymnastics club

It was a "pretty sporty year," explained frank schmitt, chairman of the mainstockheim gymnastics club, at the club’s annual general meeting. In the past few days, the club was able to surpass the 700-member mark. There is a wide range of activities for them, from children’s and youth work to table tennis, dancing, volleyball and badminton. 17 groups use the hall 38 hours per week, which adds up to over 1400 hours per year.

Reliant on the help of volunteers

Of course, this is only possible with the help of many volunteers. 25 training supervisors alone ensure that operations run smoothly. Nevertheless: support is always welcome, says the chairman. In 2017, the "platzaktion" was started and for this purpose, for example, investments were made in an outdoor table tennis table and the long jump pit. In 2018 the expansion of the outdoor facilities will be continued.

Socially, too, things were going well at the club, at least at some events. For example, at the children’s carnival, the rose monday ball or the tour de mull, where many helpers once again cleaned the grounds of mainstockheim. Schmitt was not very enthusiastic about the attendance at the folk dance evening or the participation in the church procession. Not only the chairman criticized the low number of participants and demanded: participate, not only in the training hours. In order to maintain its wide range of sporting activities, the association invested a lot last year, so that treasurer christa sterner had to present a small minus in the annual balance sheet.

"We want to go on the offensive. My experiences at milan, chelsea and paris saint-germain were always the same. All these teams played offensively, because that’s the way it has to be with such teams. I don’t think i’ll do anything different here now that i have such excellent players," said the man who has already won league titles as a coach in italy, england and france. The ambience within the team was "very, very good".

Archrival and defending champion FC barcelona, which also starts the league on sunday with its stars around lionel messi and neymar against UD levante in front of its own audience, praised ancelotti in the highest tones. "This is a very strong team with players who have a lot of quality," he said. But the italian said he did not rule out the possibility of other teams – such as atletico madrid – intervening in the primera division title fight.

Switzerland’s world cup quarterfinal is within reach, but granit xhaka and xherdan shaqiri’s provocative goal celebration in the win against serbia is met with criticism and incomprehension.

Even their coach vladimir petkovic could not hide his displeasure at the action of the former bundesliga pros. "You shouldn’t mix sport and politics. The whole federation, the whole country has been saying for years that we don’t need that," the swiss coach said after the hard-fought 2-1 (0-1) win over the serbs.

Swiss xhaka and shaqiri have kosovar roots and formed after their goals in 52. And 90. The former gladbach coach also played a part in the game. Serbia still does not recognize kosovo as an independent country, underscoring the political dimension of the controversial cheer. "Ingenious fools", commented the swiss tabloid "blick" – describing the duo’s rough sporting class and headless provocation in equal measure.
