The former Bayern-professional had ended last summer, his career actually. Now, the 36-Year-old for his Comeback to training in his youth club.

The former Bayern-professional Arjen Robben pushes his retirement and return to his youth club FC Groningen. The Dutch informed the first team on Saturday. The 36-year-old Robben had last held already at FC Bayern at the Säbener Straße fit.

Bundesliga – Schalke Misery – Sports

Against Freiburg, Schalke shows another helpless appearance and remains for 16 Games without a win. On the club grounds 1500 Fans gather to protest against Clemens Tönnies.

Shortly before the end of the game Schalke goalkeeper Christian Nübel was a bit impatient: “keep on playing” he cried half-aloud, as a Schalke attacker lost the Ball, the repositioning but had. Shortly thereafter, the conclusion was: Schalke 04 had to be 16. Game in the series not won. 4:0 SC Freiburg, a Team that went to nothing more than the defence of the place, which promises a slightly higher share of the TV money won.

The Schalke misery in this second round continued in Freiburg so seamlessly – and not just the result technically. Although it noted that at least in the first half some of the play that the actors involved have learned their Job. But the grandeur, with the Can bozdoğan, Rabbi Matondo, or Ahmed Kutucu let the Ball circulate, brought only in the rarest of cases, space and the counterattack was thwarted by the well-known Sloppiness, such as his effort took a batted Pass from Keeper Nübel, the Juan Miranda is no longer in front of the Crossing of the halfway line managed to save.

At halftime it was therefore 2:0 for Freiburg, because the Baden-Baden brought the Schalke game as a mirror image of the place. Where Schalke ball acted in love, parted in the optical (and, in many cases, individually) defeated Freiburg quickly from the Ball, bridged afloat in the midfield and came up against a more than 90 minutes a weak Schalke defense unproblematic to their gates by Luca Waldschmidt (20.) and Jonathan Schmid (38.).

“Schalke is not a slaughterhouse, against the Decomposition of our Association”

At the same time the were – according to the organizers, around 1500 Schalke fans who had gathered at the club grounds, apparently still in a good mood. Because you had expected from your team anyway, nothing more than another helpless appearance. And on the other, because of the concern that had brought them together, got through to the number of participants in the hoped-for emphasis. Under the Motto “Schalke no slaughterhouse is against the Decomposition of our Association”, had Schalke Fans called for the formation of a human chain, should its demand for a resignation of the Supervisory Board chief Clemens Tönnies underline.

The people, the organizers were in his company, and at Schalke, equally irresponsible, and for the sporting and financial Malaise of the Blue-and-White, as well as for the Corona outbreak, with over 1500 Infected in the districts of Gütersloh and Warendorf.

“We’ll throw him that he has taken the Corona pandemic lightly, and in its operation to a few protective measures are taken,” says Katharina Strohmeyer, who has organized the Protest together with her partner Stefan Barta organ. In addition, the opaque System of contract workers at various contractors working boundary”, to slavery.” In the mid-term break, as your Team is already 0:2 behind, was Strohmeyer easier then audibly: “people from all over Germany travelled to the venue. Here are the Fans who travelled up to 500 miles with the camper, even.”

If the Mentioned goods traveled from the roughly 512 kilometres away from Freiburg in Gelsenkirchen, was not to determine from there, in the black forest stadium anyway, there is nothing Surprising in more fact, also after the break, unless you find it surprising that Schalke auxiliary still loose the acting in the first 45 minutes. After a beautiful Pass from Vincenzo Grifo on Lucas Höler the delivery free on Nübel and met the 3:0 (47.). The One-to-One Situation was given the tranigen opposition of the Keepers to a One-to-Zero Situation. Freiburg had a flight the 4:0 follow – again Waldschmidt (57 met.).

And also, since then, his Team was had the opportunities to be had at some point also in SC coach Christian Streich, the body voltage a little – even after the 4:0, he had asked his team to yet more concentration. His Chelsea colleague, David Wagner tried after the game, meanwhile, to understand the Positive way to highlight. “The young team that we have today on the pitch, fought back, but in the Moment, trust and quality is missing. In the second passage we were no longer competitive.” The Gelsenkirchen-based Demo addressed, was Wagner’s defensively stronger than it was before his Elf: “It is well known that we have difficulties. I’m all for the sporting problems.”


The Old Leatherman – a story of a tough guy – panoramic

United States in the 19th century. Century: A mysterious man wanders again and again, the 365 miles between New York and Connecticut – and by newspaper reports. The history of the “old leather man”.

Everything about him was made of leather. Pants, Coat, Shoes, Hat, Backpack. He never changed clothes. He would have done it, not would he “the old leather man”. Under this name he was known, that a Vagabond, in the 19th century. Century between the U.S. States of New York and Connecticut and herwanderte.

For 30 years he should be on the road, at least six of them on the same Route. He ran 365 miles in a clockwise direction.

Every 34 days he reached the same places, Danbury, New Fairfield, Watertown, Westchester, back in Danbury. He was so punctual that any Tardiness was a message value. The press wrote about him, and children ran from the school to catch a glimpse of the leather man in transit. His identity remained a mystery.

In August, 1869, reported Port Chester Journal a man in a tattered leather suit, struck with this for some time to be alone on his travels. He slept in caves, ate berries, and went and returned again. “The poor creature”, in the newspaper, one could only wish for happiness in their loneliness.

There have been reports in the followed Bristol Pressin Connecticut Valley Advertiser, Waterbury Daily Americanin the New York Times. Until the death of the leather man in 1889, a vast Repertoire grew to texts, the the American Dan W. DeLuca in 2008, bundled in a publication with the title “The Old Leather Man”.

“Old” or “Alt” are, in fact, misleading words: The leather man was about 50 when he died.

Wild Theories

According to the records, he seemed so, as his trek was the life most important companies in the world, as it was a matter of life or death, his goal, whatever be the to achieve at the scheduled time.

He was peaceful and didn’t speak much, and when, then individual syllables in French and English, which fascinated the people even more. The leather man was a real-made fairy-tale character. Some associated the leather man with the figure of the Eternal Jew from Christian people say, always to the restlessness of hell, to make atonement for past sins.

A little punishment is in fact one of the theories to explain its origin. The good news is that The theory is a love story. The Bad: There is no Happy ending. Even worse: The Whole thing is not even true – but beautifully tragic to ignore it.

His Name was Jules Bourglay. He came from Lyon, France and had fallen in love with the daughter of a wealthy leather merchant had. But getting Married was a complicated project, under the Argus eyes of the father.

Jules Bourglay had to prove himself first as a man of honor, the favor of his daughter and the blessing of the son-in-law deserve father-in-law. So the father handed over his business temporarily in the hands of the young man. Him thriving should be able to do transactions at the end of, would be a wedding in the way. For a time the well went Bourglay ran properly. Then he invested cocky in new leather goods. Then the prices crashed. And then he crashed.

The father-in-law, would never be a father-in-law, disowned him. Jules Bourglay fled to America, where he was punished from then on, wrapped in a fabric of disaster-step-by-step for his Failure.

In a backpack the leather man was found later, next to a pipe, a hatchet and folding knives, a French-language prayer book. Even if he was not Jules Bourglay, so he had to be a Frenchman.

Although the evidence was puny, you brought some years after his death on a grave in the Sparta Cemetery in Ossining, New York, the name Jules Bourglay. Meanwhile, the tomb was moved and the false Name is replaced. Today, two other words are written there: The Leatherman. Anonymous, but after all, not a fairy tale.

30 kilograms of heavy leather cowl

In September, 1888, he was late. A snow storm raged. From the usual 34 days 36 were. The leather man, it went bad. Under his chin swelled an ulcer as large as an Orange. Cancer was eating away at his lips.

The Brewster Standard quoted a doctor who saw the hikers. It was only a matter of time, he said, until the travel of the leather’s going to have an end. The Bristol Week Press wrote, the leather man could only eat what was previously dunked in coffee, but even the Chewing of soft foods hurt so much that tears ran down his cheek.

“The Old Leather Man Dead – The Old leather man is dead,” was the headline on the 25. On March 1889, the New York Times. They found him in a cave in the small town of Mount Pleasant.

His leather suit, more art than clothing, and about 60 pounds, travelled under the earth, but to the owner of the Meehan & Wilson’s Globe Museum in New York and the Eden Wax Musee in Coney Island. There, a fire broke out in 1928, however. The clothes burned in the flames.

Maybe this was forever, everything, only not in search of Wandering. Neither in search of themselves to something else, neither to the salvation of committed sins and after overcoming a lost Love. Go walking will, a lightness of Being.

As children Covid-ill 19 – Know

New data confirm that The disease is in children is usually mild. But sometimes there are severe complications – such as the Kawasaki syndrome.

In the spring it went in Europe, day-to-day cases increased. In the first days of April, Europe has witnessed the peak of the Corona pandemic. At the same time, children began doctors from 21 countries of the continent, to collect data about their young patients. Now, the evaluation in the journal is The Lancet, Child & Adolescent Health appeared. They confirmed what had previously been reported from China: children and young people are rarely difficult to the new disease. However, In safety may weigh no family – no matter how vital, how fit your child is.

“Our study shows that severe cases occur in all age groups,” says Florian Götzinger from the Vienna wilhelminen hospital, which was involved as the main author in the investigation of children between zero and 18 years of age. But most often, the researchers found heavy Covid-19-waveforms in neonates and those children who were already pre-existing. These include Asthma and other chronic respiratory issues, congenital heart disease, cancer, and neurological diseases such as epilepsy. However, even previously healthy children was able to meet a Sars-CoV-2 infection so severe that she had to be treated in an intensive care unit. After all, three-quarters of the young intensive care patients had no known pre-existing conditions.

The risk for a transfer to the intensive care unit increased, too, if had infected children, in addition to the Coronavirus and other pathogens of respiratory diseases. Of these multiple-infected children, 24 percent had serious complications, while among the other only seven percent. Among the other pathogens of the common cold and influenza viruses. The typical flu season was already over, as the scientists gathered their data. The researchers warn, therefore, that complications in the coming Winter – if significantly more pathogens circulate – could occur more frequently.

With the work of the international Team wants to inform, in the first line clinics, what you need to set. The total of 582 children examined were all come for examination or treatment in a hospital. Children, the auskurierten the infection without any major discomfort at home, were not included in the analysis. So that the work can make no claims about how common the complications are, among all the children.

Of the surveyed almost 600 children and eight percent were treated in the ICU. About half of them had to be artificially ventilated, often more than a week. Four children have died of 0.7 per cent of the Surveyed -. Taking into account that many children develop only mild or even asymptomatic, is likely to be the mortality rate among all children is still significantly lower.

Most children and adolescents were suffering from fever and respiratory problems. About a quarter of the patients complained of gastro-intestinal-problems – part of the respiratory complaints were missing for you.

They had found some children who were positive in the Coronavirus tested, inflammation of various organs. The heart, lungs, kidney, brain, skin, eyes, or digestive organs were affected. The phenomenon was baptized a Multi-systemic inflammatory response syndrome; it can lead to shock and organ failure.

Much is open, including the question of whether the syndrome goes back really to be causally related to infection with Sars-CoV-2, why is it so far only in some countries has been observed, and whether it can long leave term damage. To these questions, the current LancetStudy contribute nothing.

The multi-systemic inflammatory syndrome is similar in part to the Kawasaki-syndrome, which was described in the 1960s in Japan for the first time. Also this disorder have observed a physician when Covid-ill children. It occurs especially in under five year old children and is associated with inflammation of the blood vessels, with fever and often a rash. In the extreme case, you can attack the heart.

Among the uncertainties that pediatricians know enough about what drugs you can treat children with severe Covid-diseases of the best.
