Shaquanda miller-mccray's specialties: rebound and block

Eintracht Braunschweig's officials like to let the imported players fly in together via a turnstile. And since the joint plane was delayed, Shaquanda Miller-McCray and Jordan Chavis realized during their wait that they know each other from previous duels. A high school all-star game as well as duels in the college division ties the Lionpride team, but the players were no longer even aware of it. Now the two new Americans of the Lowenrudel even live together, and Miller-McCray is the defensive anchor in the game of the second-division basketball team.

Great team, great team spirit – Shaquanda Miller-McCray raves about Lionpride

"I've never played in such a good team with such great cohesion," the 23-year-old is enthusiastic about her career move from Serbia to the Lionesses. In Novi Sad she completed her first season outside the USA. "Like in Braunschweig, there is a beautiful old town there," says Miller-McCray. But the pandemic naturally made things more difficult. She didn't really get to play as well as she did in the Blue and Yellow team on the Danube. At the Oker, however, she has found the perfect role. She still has to get used to the new environment, as she did at her previous station.

The 1.93-meter woman convinces with 7.2 rebounds on average. She anchors just under three of those on the offensive board, which might be one of the top marks in the league. And with her long arms, i.e. an impressive wingspan, she regularly blocks throws from opponents. Some don't even get rid of their shot on the way to the basket against Miller-McCray. Ten rebounds she grabbed in Chemnitz, for example. In the important win at Rist Wedel there were nine.

Konrad shaft: repository companies check their own plans

Konrad shaft: repository companies check their own plans

Three repository companies involved in the planning and construction of the Konrad mine shaft also weighed in heavily on a safety assessment. This is what our newspaper learned. This is not just any report, but a review of the safety requirements for the Konrad repository, or usiko for short.

The report, presented earlier this year, became necessary because the zoning decision dates from 2002, basic plans even date from the 1980s, and the final repository in Salzgitter is not scheduled to go into operation until 2027. usiko is to ensure that the planned repository always remains at the cutting edge of science and technology.

The companies involved are DMT GmbH from Essen, Brenk Systemplanung GmbH from Aachen and the Gesellschaft fur Anlagen und Reaktorsicherheit (GRS) from Cologne. There were other companies involved in usiko, as well as a so-called review team consisting of four researchers. One of them is Professor Klaus-Jurgen Rohlig from the Clausthal University of Technology. Rohlig worked for GRS in Cologne from 1991 to 2007. The review team's verdict on Konrad safety: there is "no evidence of aspects with respect to which the safety assessment should be fundamentally questioned".

The top duo moves in lonely circles

The top duo moves in lonely circles

Three match days before the end of the preliminary round, FSV Schoningen II and FC Schunter were already determined as participants in the promotion round in the soccer district league 2. A gripping battle broke out for the remaining two places, which will drag on into the new year due to match postponements.

FC Schunter

12 games, 28 points – the FC wanted to be in the mix at the front and is doing so. "Of course, we always want to improve further, but overall, we have little to reproach ourselves for. The two defeats against Schoningen were deserved, only our 3:3 against Nordkreis really annoys me because we gave the game away unnecessarily after leading 3:1," summarizes Schunter coach Julien Wossmann. In most of the other games, his team was convincing, not only in terms of play, but also with the individual class, for example of top scorer Dominik Claus (15 goals) or Steffen Bellina.

FSV Schoningen II

When the competition named the FSV reserve as a promotion contender before the season, Schoningen's new player-coach Christopher Peine still resisted it. "The team is practically completely new. We first have to see how quickly we play in," he said at the time. The answer: very quickly! The FSV reserve is the only unbeaten team in the entire district league, defeated in the top games Schunter each clearly with 5:1 and 4:1. The goal ratio of 46:9 is also that of a promotion favorite. "We didn't expect things to go so well right away, but of course we're happy about it," Peine said recently. Meanwhile, the draws against Supplingen, Danndorf and TSV Germania (each 1:1) also show that FSV II is not invulnerable.

Trouble over hitler resemblance: amazon changes the app logo

Only in January had Amazon presented its new app logo: a cardboard box bearing a quirky smile, plus a jagged blue adhesive strip at the top edge of the package. However, the successor to the older symbol with a blue shopping cart triggered discussions – as it apparently aroused associations with Adolf Hitler.

In social media, the tape with jagged edges with the Hitler's mustache compared. A similarity that was also addressed by international media outlets. The British newspaper "The Sun" commented with a play on words: "You can't Nazi it" – meaning: "You can't miss it".

Some Amazon customers were also reminded of the YouTuber by the combination of blue tape and a grin Rezo – whose trademark is blue hair and a mischievous smile. Other viewers also saw a toothbrush in the jagged adhesive strip.

Raabe defies the pain

Raabe defies the pain

Still heavily drawn was Steven Raabe, as he swung on the ergometer Wednesday morning, later attending the training session of his Grizzlies Wolfsburg watched. The 20-year-old Grizzlies defender has had a tough time of it lately. On Sunday against Ingolstadt, a puck had hit him so unfortunately in the lip area that he had to be stitched with "22 to 25 stitches". How many exactly, the homegrown no longer knows. And yet, on Thursday, Raabe would prefer to be on the bus when his team travels to the away trip at the RB Munich (Friday, 19.30 o'clock) – even if he would then probably have another handicap more.

Because protecting this part of the face would only be possible with a barred visor, as junior players up to the age of 18. Year of life carry. "It's annoying and it's going to be an adjustment," says the defender, even though the days of full visor were not even a year and a half ago for him. His coach knows: "Above all, mentally he must be ready again after this cut."

Thursday morning final test for Raabe

It wasn't even a hard shot puck that hit him. But it hit him so badly that in the past few days he found it difficult to eat ("I could only take small bites") and had to resort to painkillers. "I have to admit that I underestimated the pain a little bit," he says.

City-point – the center is becoming increasingly empty

City-point - the center is becoming increasingly empty

News from the City-Point – but it's not good news. The eastern part of the center, which was open during the reconstruction, is becoming more and more deserted. Once again it has lost a prominent tenant. On Saturday, the popular salad snack bar "Blattgrun" closed its doors – even though, according to the operator, the contract still ran until 2018.

Operator would rather pay a fine than be in the red

"We would have liked to have avoided the vacancy at Christmas time."

Philipp Schroder
, Center manager, on the closure of "Blattgrun.

Only a tenant, but an important one. Because he leaves a gap that cannot be overlooked in the center, which wants to take off again in mid-2015 with the opening of anchor tenant Primark. "This came as a surprise to us, too, and we're sorry for the customers and the other tenants here," says center manager Philipp Schroder. Would have liked to keep the tenant. "We would have liked to avoid the vacancy for the Christmas business."

Primark: customers storm store

Primark: customers storm store

Dozens of customers were already waiting at the door an hour before the store opened. Like a mega-event. And when the doors opened at 11 a.m., an estimated 1,000 people flocked to the new Primark store on Sack, filling the five floors in a matter of minutes. And Brunswick had in one fell swoop over 6400 square meters of retail space more. And a new half shopping center. Because the previously deserted half in the City-Point is now filled with customers again. By the evening Primark counted a few thousand customers.

Significant day for retail

"I congratulate the city on the gift Primark has given by locating here."

Dr. Bernd Meier
, Managing Director of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

31. March 2015 – a day that will go down in the history of retail in this city, almost comparable to the opening of the Schlossarkaden at the end of March 2007. This was also the view of Dr. Bernd Meier, Chief Executive Officer of the Braunschweig Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK). In his speech, which he held in the store in front of the employees, he congratulated Braunschweig on the "gift" that Primark is giving the city with its settlement.

What to look for in credit cards with installment option

What to look for in credit cards with installment option

Who with Credit card pays, gets a free loan. For only once a month, everything paid with the card is debited from the current account at once. Actually.

There are also credit cards that work differently: The bank only debits part of the debt from the current account. Sounds good, but can be a nasty trap – because the rest will be interest from now on. And that very expensive: quickly times around the 18 percent. A fortune in the current zero-interest times, when you can hardly get even one percent interest on a balance anywhere.

Credit card instead of Dispo

There are various names for this principle, which is already known from classic credit cards from the USA: Revolving credit card, credit card with installment option or installment function. The Amazon credit card, for example, is one of them. Another example is the Barclaycard, which is to be had already for many years in Germany also without associated current account.
