Retail in Grafing – “This is just an emergency solution” – Ebersberg

Most retail stores in the Ebersberg district have to remain closed due to the pandemic at least until mid-February. The Grafinger shoe store Koppitz is also one of those affected. So Senior Walter Koppitz does one lap in the car every day, or more accurately: with a Piaggio Ape 50 with a 50 cc two-stroke engine under the windshield.

SZ: To stay in the picture of a master shoemaker: How’s it going?

Walter Koppitz: At the moment I don’t find the play on words funny anymore. Personally, I’m fine – but the rest annoys me a lot: We are the fourth generation to run two shoe stores in Grafing. They are both about 200 square meters. But I’m not even allowed to let in a single customer at the moment. Even if it were two or three people: Nobody is crowded on this large area!

It is said that necessity makes inventive

You mean our home service? Yes, you can say that. Once a day I sit in the Piaggio Ape 50 and deliver or pick up shoes.

Please tell us.

For example, if someone calls us and wants a new shoe, we assume: a shoe that is good for a bit of slush, but does not have to be put in the closet in the spring either. I would probably ask the customer a few more questions. What color should it be? Should the shoe be rather simple or something special? Foot shape and foot width are also always important. And of course I need to know the size. Then I choose between three and seven pairs, put them in the trunk and take them with me on the next tour. I put the shoes in front of the customer’s door, he can look at them and try them on in peace. The next day he just puts the couples he doesn’t like back in front of the door for me. On the next tour, I’ll drive by and pick up the boxes again. Or, if he doesn’t like any, all of them. Of course, everything is non-binding. Of course, this also applies to the call-and-collect principle: someone calls and then picks up their shoes at my door.

You may have invented a new business model.

Absolutely no way! Such a short phone call is no substitute for advice in a business. This is just an emergency solution. I don’t even want to think about profitability. The service only compensates for a fraction of the turnover. Of course we hope that word gets around. But none of this is an option for the custom-made products that we produce here in the workshop. For older customers, however, we will keep the delivery service in the future.

What kind of people are you driving the shoes past?

Completely normal district citizens, for whom I am honestly grateful, not only in view of the current situation. Because they are people who care about local retail. Who have an awareness that the city center and the marketplace will die out if this continues with online orders. And who are aware that you will never get the service on the Internet that is a matter of course in retail. But the closed shop is unfortunately only one problem.

And the other?

That has to do with the workshop. Usually it is busy. One has to have his brogue shoes resole, another maybe recondition a shoe. But when events are no longer allowed up or down the country, the need for a nice shoe is rather low.


Several tens of thousands of demonstrators in Russia to hope to save Alexeï Navalny

For the Kremlin, it will be a reminder: in the enterprise of demolition of the opposition that it has undertaken, the Russian authorities will have to reckon with the streets. On Saturday 23 January, tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Russian cities to demand the release of the opponent Alexeï Navalny, arrested on January 17 on his return from Germany, five months after his poisoning in Siberia.

From Vladivostok to Kaliningrad, rallies, systematically banned, took place in 114 cities, far more than what had been expected by those close to the opponent. They brought together several thousand people each time, with particularly important mobilizations in Irkutsk, Novosibirsk, Perm or Yekaterinburg. In Yakutsk, a few hundred people gathered in a temperature of – 53 degrees.

In Moscow, the demonstration was far from resembling the human tide the opposition had hoped for, but it will go down as the most important unauthorized rally in the last twenty years. Agence France-Presse estimated the crowd in the capital at 20,000 people (and as many in St. Petersburg), Reuters at 40,000. The police gave a figure of 4,000. Le Compteur blanc, an independent NGO specializing in counting demonstrators, for his part, gave an estimate between 18,000 and 35,000.

These differences are explained by the chaotic form that the demonstration took. The compact crowd of Pushkin Square, wedged between the cordon of security forces, quickly overflowed into the adjacent streets. Deprived of leaders and harassed by the police, she strolled through a significant portion of the center of the capital.

In Moscow, the January 23 demonstration will go down as the most important unauthorized rally in the last twenty years.

Horns and toilet brush

With the usual slogans – ” Freedom “, “Putin, thief! “ -, others referred to the film A Palace for Putin, aired this week and which totals 71 million views. This investigation into a secret presidential palace on the shores of the Black Sea, financed by the “friends” of Mr. Putin, has become the main mobilization tool of the Navalny team. We were thus able to see demonstrators brandishing toilet brushes, in reference to those that the Kremlin would bring from Italy for an amount of 700 euros each, for an annex of this palace.

Another novelty is the incessant sound of horns which accompanied the demonstration as a sign of support. Usually, opposition rallies take place with relative indifference from passers-by or motorists. “The fact that those who have not taken to the streets begin to regard those who do so in a neutral way, or even with empathy, poses a greater threat to power than the number of protesters”, noted the political scientist Vladimir Pastoukhov on the antenna of the radio Echo of Moscow.

6 Nations tournament: Lorenzetti offers to play in a “bubble” at the Defense Arena

The 6 Nations Tournament in Nanterre? It could become more than just an idea, as competition is threatened by the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic and new measures at Europe’s borders, which impose quarantines. In any case, this is the proposal made by the president of Racing 92, Jacky Lorenzetti, at half-time of the match lost by his team against UBB on Saturday (32-33).

Asked by Canal + on the hypothesis of seeing the Tournament hosted in France, the Ile-de-France leader said that his Paris La Défense Arena was a candidate to host the entire competition, i.e. fifteen meetings. “It starts from the observation that organizing a classic VI Nations Tournament, with trips to six countries, a lot of people will be out for a walk. It is possible that the Tournament will be banned in its current form. What we want, like what happened in Lisbon (Editor’s note: for the Final 8 of the Champions League) or in Orlando (during the NBA playoffs), it is here to offer the possibility of the Tournament to take place over five weeks continuously, and in a bubble, ”assured Lorenzetti.

“The ball is in Bernard Laporte’s court”

This would allow the simultaneous reception of the six selections, placed under a cover and hosted not far from the stadium. Allowing to reduce as much as possible the risks of contamination of players or staff members. While the 6 Nations Tournament must begin with the reception of Italy by the XV of France, on February 6 (and until March 20), the president of the French Rugby Federation (FFR) Bernard Laporte wanted to be optimistic about its good performance, despite the evolution of the health situation in Europe. Next week will probably be decisive on this file, while the public authorities must make a final decision soon.

“The ball is in Bernard Laporte’s court,” concludes Lorenzetti. There may be other solutions, but it seems to me that that of the Paris La Défense Arena is an interesting solution. “

EU puts pressure on vaccine deliveries – politics

After a second pharmaceutical company, Astra Zeneca, announced problems with vaccine delivery, the EU wants to increase pressure on manufacturers to ensure punctual delivery. “We expect that the contracts that the pharmaceutical industry has signed will be kept,” said Council President Charles Michel on Sunday. Above all, one must be clear about the reason for the delay. If necessary, the EU will use legal means, he said. The EU Commission also says that the legal options are being examined. Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides wanted to remind Astra Zeneca by letter on Sunday that the company had contractually agreed to start production before the vaccine was released.

Astra Zeneca announced on Friday that it would initially deliver fewer corona vaccines in the EU than planned. The reason is lower production at one location in the EU supply chain. Astra Zeneca’s vaccine is not yet approved in the EU, but it is expected to be released next Friday. The Commission secured 400 million doses of vaccine from Astra Zeneca on behalf of the Member States in August. According to unconfirmed reports, the delivery volume is reduced by about 60 percent.

Before Astra Zeneca, the German-American manufacturer Biontech-Pfizer had already announced delivery problems. Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte criticized the companies heavily. “These slowdowns in deliveries are serious breaches of contract that are causing enormous damage in Italy and other European countries,” he wrote on Facebook on Saturday. He also announced legal action. Since the purchase contracts with the companies are based on the EU quotas, but ultimately concluded by the capitals themselves, they can also take action against the suppliers themselves.

According to Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU), Germany is also affected by the reduced delivery volume. “If the Astra Zeneca vaccine is approved at the end of January, we expect at least three million vaccine doses for Germany as early as February,” said Spahn Picture on sunday. However, he admitted that this was less than expected. Spahn did not comment on any legal action taken against the company.

The reduced deliveries are causing delays in vaccination plans in the federal states. There are no new first vaccinations in North Rhine-Westphalia this week. In Bavaria, fixed vaccination appointments were canceled at short notice in individual districts and postponed by up to two months.

As Spahn further announced, the federal government is now also relying on drugs that can cause a milder course of the Covid infection. The Ministry of Health bought 200,000 cans of the corresponding preparations for 400 million euros. According to the ministry, these are contingents of two different drugs that contain antibodies. “According to the available studies, the medication could possibly help to limit the amount of virus in the body and thus have a positive influence on the course of the disease,” said a ministry spokeswoman. Former US President Donald Trump is said to have been treated with such a preparation when he contracted the corona virus.


With the death of Jean Graton, father of “Michel Vaillant”, Franco-Belgian comics turn a page

By Frédéric Potet

Posted January 21, 2021 at 7:17 p.m. – Updated January 22, 2021 at 11:30 a.m.

The Faceless Pilot (1960), The Circuit of Fear (1961), Suspense in Indianapolis (1966), The Phantom of the 24 Hours (1970), Rodeo on 2 wheels (1971), Rifify in F1 (1982), 300 per hour in Paris (1983)… We never tire of rereading the titles of the adventures of Michel Vaillant, saga with 70 albums, published between the end of the 1950s and the mid-2000s, archetype of a sub-genre that has almost disappeared: sports comics. One of its last great craftsmen – one of the most widely read in the world – the French designer and screenwriter Jean Graton died Thursday, January 21 in Brussels, at the age of 97.

Jean Graton, author of the series

With him turns a page of Franco-Belgian comics, of which he was a pillar. A certain conception of realistic drawing and the importance given to documentation is also fading away. Jean Graton was known for his sickly precision. Not a bolt was missing from his reproductions of existing racing car models. Michel Vaillant has captured the imagination of many young readers of Tintin’s Journalwhether or not they are fans of cylinders. Mainly boys. But also girls, for whom the designer had created a female counterpart to his hero, Californian motorcycle champion Julie Wood.

Alain Prost will admit having wanted to become a pilot after reading “Michel Vaillant”

Born August 10, 1923 in Nantes, Jean Graton lost his mother at the age of 11. He was raised by his father, a motor sports fanatic, commissioner of the Nantes Motorcycling Club, who took him to the 24 Hours of Le Mans when he was a teenager. Sport is his second passion, behind drawing which he begins to practice in the industrial sector and in that of advertising. In Brussels, where he left to settle in order to integrate the world of comics, he was first hired in a sports newspaper, The sports, before joining the World’s Press agency, which provided a lot of drawn content to post-war newspapers and magazines. It is quite naturally that he makes his entry to Spirou where he illustrates several Uncle Paul Stories, famous documentary series with didactic aims.

Jean Graton alongside the Belgian pilot Jacky Ickx, in Monza (Italy), in 1967.

It is however in the pages of the title “rival”, the Tintin’s Journal, that he will give birth, in 1957, to the character who will never leave him thereafter: Michel Vaillant. After several short stories featuring the impassive pilot, a first album was released, two years later: The Grand Challenge.

Hertha BSC: Tabula rasa in the capital – sport

At the end of the 19th century, when today’s Bundesliga club Hertha BSC had just been founded, the writer Mark Twain traveled to England from the USA. Twain fell ill in such a way that his obituary was already published in his homeland, which Twain commented with his own sense of humor: The news of his death was “greatly exaggerated”, he is supposed to have said. Which brings us to Bruno Labbadia. Labbadia is not a writer, but a football coach, and he is not sick, but is in excellent health. But on Saturday he had his very own Twain moment.

It was around 8.30 p.m., the temperatures around the freezing point in the Olympic Stadium must have crept into his body long ago, so he was supposed to comment on the game that had just ended on Sky on the sidelines, according to the custom and TV contract. Hertha BSC lost 1: 4 (1: 2), and the fact that this game had already been dubbed the “final” for Labbadia (and manager Michael Preetz) was one thing. The other was that the coach received a fresh message from the live and in color picture-The newspaper was rubbed under the frozen nose: “Labbadia decision made” was to be read, and that in turn meant that he was asked, so to speak, to comment on his own death on television. Question: “What does that do to you?” Labbadia’s anger was unmistakable.

But he got the performance to an end with admirable demeanor and dignity. Although he must have suspected various things – for example: that the report was correct and it would only be a matter of time before it was confirmed. That was the case on Sunday lunchtime after Labbadia said goodbye to his team that morning. A little less predictable: Manager Michael Preetz also has to leave after almost 25 years in the club. “We want a fresh start,” said Hertha’s new strong man, CEO Carsten Schmidt, who has been in office for 55 days and would have liked to have had more time to reposition the club.

The successor to Preetz has only been clarified for the time being. Former national player Arne Friedrich, who was installed as “Performance Manager” by ex-trainer Jürgen Klinsmann over a year ago, will succeed him in the rank of sports director. When asked about the coach, Schmidt said that they had a plan that they would implement, if possible, on Monday. The favorites for an interim solution are: Pal Dardai and Andreas “Zecke” Neuendorf, both former Hertha professionals who are currently coaches for subordinate teams in the club. Schmidt publicly asked Labbadia for forgiveness: the indiscretion to the picturenewspaper have nothing in common with the style he wanted to see, that was “a bad performance” by Hertha.

The external presentation on Saturday thus fit in quite seamlessly with a series of football appearances by Hertha. The 1: 4 against Werder means, among other things, that Hertha can only show 17 points from 18 games this season; in the first round of the DFB Cup they also retired from second division promoted Braunschweig. Thus, the eighth coaching engagement of Labbadia since 2003 became one of the thorns of his career.

Labbadia’s commitment was also the opportunity for him to distinguish himself as a development trainer

Labbadia started in Berlin in April 2020 to look after a squad that was already playing below its potential, i.e. against relegation. For him, the commitment was also the chance to put an end to his reputation as a firefighter and to distinguish himself as a development trainer. At his penultimate coaching station, in Wolfsburg, it looked like he could do it – but he left VfL due to differences with manager Jörg Schmadtke. Now, nine months after starting in Berlin, Labbadia is getting a disgruntled certificate: Under his leadership, Hertha saved itself confidently in the preseason – but the freestyle failed, although the squad has had players worth more than 100 million euros since the beginning of 2020 was reinforced.

Across the seasons, Hertha’s average point under Labbadia was 1.07 per game. No team he has ever coached has been worse, not even Hamburger SV. On Saturday he himself spoke of the fact that he “no longer had any arguments” – after a game that looked like a joke on paper.

According to the statistics, Hertha was superior to the Bremen team in all aspects that are empirically recorded. Only: The game was another example of how relative such values ​​can be. Although Werder fired fewer shots on goal, kicked fewer corners, played fewer passes and had a lower pass rate than Hertha, the victory was high – and understandable. And not just because of the effectiveness that Werder displayed – in the goals with a penalty kick from Davie Selke, a header from Ömer Toprak, a technically demanding finish from Leonardo Bittencourt and a howitzer-like 4-1 from Joshua Sargent, Hertha only a Cordoba header in stoppage time could oppose the first half. But Werder was also the team with the more solid ideas, the clearer structure, the greater selflessness and discipline.

“In this morning’s analysis, too, Bruno Labbadia and I are a little bit desperate that we have a very good team individually, but have not managed to get an axis or a team performance on the pitch where all three parts of the team are not individually, but perform well together, “said Schmidt on Sunday. The consequence is the table status, for which there was a booth sermon full of realism: He had made an appeal to the team and “made it clear what phase we are in: in the relegation battle.” Nobody can contradict that.


one million French people have been vaccinated

Strengthening of the vaccination campaign, negative test result requested at the borders: the government is taking new measures to avoid a new epidemic wave of Covid-19, made more dangerous by its variants, but it no longer excludes decreeing a third confinement . The Prime Minister announced on Saturday that a million French people were now vaccinated and published in the wake a thank you message on his Twitter account.

France recorded 321 additional deaths and more than 23,000 new contaminations in twenty-four hours, according to figures released Saturday, January 23 by Public Health France, while 25,864 patients remained hospitalized. In total, the Ministry of Health counted Saturday evening 1,008,720 people who received the first dose of the vaccine against the virus responsible for the disease, since the start of the vaccination campaign four weeks ago.

  • New measures that would not exclude confinement

Mr. Véran warned on Thursday that the government “Could be required to take harsher measures, [lesquelles] would go as far as confinement “, if ever the circulation of the variant first detected in England were to significantly increase.

At this stage, according to the minister, it represents 1% to 1.5% of the total daily contaminations by Covid-19, “Or 200 to 300 cases per day”. “This variant (…), it’s almost the same virus, except that it’s more contagious. It’s a race against time to prevent it from spreading ”, he insisted.

  • “Avoid talking and telephoning in public transport”

The National Academy of Medicine (ANM) recommends, in addition to wearing a compulsory mask, to“Avoid talking and telephoning in public transport”, when physical distancing cannot be respected.

The ANM also recalls, in a press release published Friday, that the mask must be worn at all times in public space, even when the physical distance becomes greater than 1 meter; that it should cover the mouth and nose and should be changed after four hours or when it becomes wet; and that the condition of the fabric masks must be checked after each washing with detergent, any sign of deterioration leading to their removal.

Otherwise, “The effectiveness of” general public “masks has never been faulted when they are correctly worn”, recalls the ANM, which adds that the ComCor epidemiological study shows that most of the contamination takes place in circumstances which make it possible to remove the mask.

  • Health authorities recommend spacing out six weeks, instead of three, the second injection

Spacing two doses of vaccine six weeks apart is an option ” reasonable “, assures the High Authority of Health (HAS), to protect the most vulnerable and face the “Epidemic outbreak”. The vaccination schedule followed so far is the administration of two doses spaced at least twenty-one days apart for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and twenty-eight days for that produced by Moderna.

“In a context of limitation in the number of vaccine doses and in order to allow an increase in the vaccination coverage of the most vulnerable people in the short term, the extension of the time between two vaccine doses is an option to be considered”, HAS said in a report released on Saturday.

Extending the injection time between the two doses would allow“Accelerate the administration of the first dose to the most vulnerable people”, i.e., according to HAS projections, at least 700,000 additional people “Which would be protected by the vaccine” during the first month of application of this measure. At the individual level, “The risk of loss of efficiency” of the vaccine between two doses “Seems limited”, indicates the HAS.

But for such a measure of spacing between doses of vaccines can accelerate vaccination coverage and slow down the circulation of the virus, the high authority considers that three prerequisites must be met. The first: vaccinate those most at risk in order of priority, namely those aged 75 and over, then “Those from 65 to 74 years old, starting with those with co-morbidities”, and therefore more risk of death linked to Covid-19. The second: the implementation of this modification of the vaccination schedule must be ” fast “. The third : “The total available doses of the two vaccines” must be used and “Vaccine capacity, including during potential periods of confinement”, must be maintained.

  • A cluster at the Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon hospital

The French archipelago of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, which had recorded only 16 cases of Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic, has been facing several contaminations since Friday, which restrict the activity of its only hospital and forced the state high school to close some classes. Four positive cases of Covid-19 have been identified by the territorial health administration, announced the prefecture of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon. The first two concern two doctors on mission for a week at the François-Dunan hospital in Saint-Pierre. Another hospital practitioner as well as his high school son were infected.

This is the first time that the archipelago has recorded endogenous cases resulting from non-familial transmission. The two specialist doctors and the emergency physician having been in contact with patients in the days preceding their test, the health authorities have already identified “At least 65 contact cases” at the hospital, and at the high school where the fourth identified case is attending. For security reasons, the authorities have recommended the cancellation of all sporting and cultural events until further notice and invited the 6,000 residents to limit their social interactions and scrupulously respect barrier gestures. Bars and restaurants can ” for the moment “ continue their activities, in this territory where restrictions have been lifted since the end of the first confinement.

Lille joins Paris in the lead, Lyon clings to the podium

Lille keep pace with PSG. They responded to the Parisians’ victory on Friday against Montpellier (4-0), defeating another well-ranked team, Rennes (1-0) on Sunday January 24. Lyon, under the pressure of the leading duo, made short work of Saint-Etienne and thus remains a short distance from its competitors.

Rennes-Lille 0-1

Christophe Galtier’s men did not have their best match of the season, but emerged from a trap match against Rennes, fifth, with three points. The Canadian Jonathan David, already a decisive scorer against Reims the previous week, scored the only goal of the match at the start of the match. Rennes goalkeeper Romain Salin could only extend the ball after a corner shot in front of the goal, and David, well placed at the far post, pushed him to the back of the net. If Rennes had possession, Lille obtained almost every opportunity in the match.

The Canadian forward also almost got a penalty in the first half but, after long minutes, the video referees confirmed the decision of the assistant referee, who had raised his flag for an offside of a few millimeters. In the standings, the LOSC comes back up to the Parisians, and pushes the Rennais back to nine points.

Lyon-Saint-Etienne 5-0

Mission accomplished for OL, easy winner of the 122e derby, among Stéphanois lessened by the absence of seven players sick with Covid-19. Already author of a double in the first leg, Tino Kadewere did it again in the return (16e, 68e), imitated by Marcelo (36e, 59e). Denis Bouanga, against his camp (83e), prolonged the ordeal of the Greens, who suffer their biggest defeat at home to the rival, tied with the 5-0 of 2017.

Rudi Garcia’s players (3e of the standings, 42 points), who had lost against Metz (1-0) last weekend, relaunch and remain two lengths of PSG and Losc.

Bordeaux-Angers 2-1

Hwang Ui-jo scored both goals in Bordeaux's victory against Angers on Sunday January 24.

Bordeaux came back up to Olympique de Marseille – defeated Saturday in Monaco (3-1) – to sixth place in the standings, thanks to its victory against Angers (2-1).

A quick brace from South Korean Hwang Ui-jo gave Bordeaux a third consecutive victory. The striker scored in the first quarter of an hour his first double since his arrival in Bordeaux in 2019.

The Angevins then reacted and reduced the gap on a free kick from Angelo Fulgini. Without three saves from Benoît Costil or the post back from the locker room, the SCO would even have come back to score.

Thanks to this success, the Bordelais reserve the right to dream of Europe, provided they continue their momentum against Lyon and Lille in the next ten days. The Angevins, beaten for the third time in a row, are overtaken in the standings by their opponents and are now 9e.

Metz-Nantes 2-0

Farid Boulaya, right, scored Metz's second goal against Nantes.

Raymond Domenech has not chained a fourth draw since his arrival on the Canaries bench. But the former coach of the Blues would undoubtedly have preferred: he suffered his first defeat with Nantes on the lawn of Metz.

Since his arrival at the club at the end of December 2020, the situation has not improved: three points in four games, and only two goals scored, a symbol of still insufficient offensive animation. The Nantes struck eight times, without ever succeeding in framing.

Already scorer in the prestigious victory against Lyon in the previous match, Messin Aaron Leya Iseka opened the scoring after half an hour of play, cheating Nantes goalkeeper Alban Lafont with a lob. At the very end of the match, Farid Boulaya gave more relief to the victory of Metz, now eighth in the standings.

Reims-Brest 1-0

A gag goal was enough for the Rémois to win against the Bretons. Shortly before half-time, Nathanaël Mbuku scored by involuntarily deflecting a powerful volley from Xavier Chavalerin. Brest then pushed to return the score, but Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men were clumsy in front of goal.

After a failed start to the season, the Champenois give up company to the bottom teams and take nine points ahead of the first relegation, Dijon.

Dijon-Strasbourg 1-1

Strasbourg's Alexander Djiku and Dijonnais Mama Samba Balde failed to decide on Sunday 24 January.

In this duel of poorly classified (15e and 18e), neither team has managed to make the difference, and both remain unbeaten in 2021. Ludovic Ajorque opened the scoring by being on the lookout after a parade from the Dijon goalkeeper. The Strasbourg could even have doubled the lead in the wake, but Adrien Thomasson found the crossbar. Of their fifteen strikes, only two found the frame.

Shortly after the hour mark, Dijon’s Senou Coulibaly equalized after a corner kick, for Dijon’s first goal at home in three months. The Burgundians, who celebrated their 200e match in the elite, seize the place of barrage at the expense of Nîmes, whose match against Lorient has been postponed due to cases of Covid-19.

The world
