October responded as follows: "The day of the Reformation with @seeforfreehh was a really great success ",
he wrote as @ADressel, "as financial senator, we would like to help
to be able to keep it free of admission in 2019 :-)! "

Then Culture Senator answered Carsten Brosda: "Rather @ADressel, I'll come back for sure
back … [Zwinkersmiley] It's about access and relevance of the museums. Good, if @FHH_FB this is and helps. "

This in turn inspired the Finance Senator so much that he
wrote: "Gebonder, dear @CarstenBrosda! If we all finance and
However, cultural policy issues are always so simple and transparent

Is not that wonderful? Anyway, I'm already looking forward to the

Business Senator is angry about shore power

Speaking of love. One likes to
They think they are great, the Shore power plant
in Altona.
But she does not really make it easy for you. Exactly one ship,
the "AIDAsol", it currently uses regularly, a second, the "Europe 2" of
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, has just four test runs this year. past
Just 50 percent of the total was due to subsidized electricity prices
Operating costs brought in, the construction costs are not even trying that
because finally: pilot project! Now it came out that the
"AIDAsol" on their last five attempts just

This resulted in a small request from the left with the sleek title "How Much

Strom-Quickie is according to the Senate response introduced by the Federal Network Agency
"High load time window", which should control the power consumption in Germany. Becomes
In this time window electricity related network charges rise dramatically.
That's why the new Senator for Economic Affairs was "really annoyed" Michael Westhagemann according to German
Press Agency. "There you have to find a way, this problem
to be able to solve it as quickly as possible. "Westhagemann still wants a love withdrawal
Knowing nothing: Climate and environmental protection would cost money. Nevertheless, be

When robots caress dying people

Mario Bäumer: Fear is a bad guide. The exhibition is more likely to pursue this
The goal that we consider: how do we use the opportunities? All studies say
that robots and artificial intelligence (AI) are not taking jobs away from us, but
Work will decrease. But we have to think as a society,
how we deal with occupations that can be completely automated.
Low earners with low educational qualifications are more affected

EV: Everyone else is safe?

Bäumer: Also
Doctors and lawyers will lose their jobs if they refuse to use AI

To stick my head in the sand I still think wrong. In the exhibition
It's also about identifying ways to handle it.

EV: There were aspects that make you shudder

Bäumer: I

Years will be the order of the day?

Bäumer: In
big companies are interviewed by a robot,

However, I would not know if I want to work with the perfect colleague

Regional and seasonal in the Oberhafen

This door! From time to time she opens up, sometimes not back, bringing in not only goods, curious and hungry, but above all cold air. You order a tea. There is no fresh ginger, but a herbal tea from the house of Samova (2.80 euros) in the aluminum cup, and also the juice of the day with beetroot and fennel (4.20 euros) is warmed on request. The Hobenköök in the hitherto rather inanimate Oberhafen has been open since the summer and wants to be restaurant and market hall in one. In the back, regional and seasonal food is offered. Lunch is called "Middach", there are Havelland apple pork with roasted potatoes and vegetables (12.50 Euro) – the meat is excellent – and tofu-millet salad with cabbage and pepper (9.50 Euro). In the meantime, many ingredients are on the plate, and as if they have made peacefully, it does not dominate, but it also seems a bit indecisive. Just as the ensemble in the hall of a former freight yard did not really decide to be stylish, industrial or pithy.
