Shaquanda miller-mccray's specialties: rebound and block

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".

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.

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.

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.

Ioc chief thomas bach: the autocrat of the five rings

Ioc chief thomas bach: the autocrat of the five rings

If Thomas Bach were not a man of the world, he could easily be imagined as a successful businessman in other walks of life. In a car dealership, he would have the office with the most beautiful view, and his most loyal customers would get luxury cars that are considered sold out. At the weekly market, he would always get a taste as he walked by, because he makes sure the best vendors get the stalls at the entrance. In the local cinema he would always have a seat free for his acquaintances. No matter how full the movie theater.

But Thomas Bach has long since found the best job for him: He has been president of the world's most important sports organization since 2013. And will remain so. His re-election on the digital 137. IOC session considered safe today, Bach has no opposing candidate.

Dagmar Freitag: This is how Thomas Bach secures his power

Bach is neither big nor small, neither particularly original nor witty. His statements on sports policy are limited to platitudes. His appearance matches his image: friendly, smooth, aloof. How could this unaming man make it to the top of the IOC?

Knoche will stay at least until summer

On Saturday, Robin Knoche was once again exactly where he would like to be all the time: in the middle of things instead of just being there – on the playing field. At the match between his VfL Wolfsburg and Hertha BSC (2:3), the 24-year-old finally played for the Wolves again. But: How does it continue with him?

His contract ends next summer. Clear is according to our information: There will be no winter change Knoches. Either he extends his expiring contract after the turn of the year or he leaves the VfL in the summer after then twelve years. The 24-year-old said recently that he had not yet thought about his future. Nevertheless, it is heard from his environment that he would like to stay in Wolfsburg. However, only if his sporting situation improves permanently. A year ago Knoche already had the chance to change. Borussia Monchengladbach wanted to have it. But VfL manager Klaus Allofs refused.

Another central defender is likely to leave if there is a good offer: For Carlos Ascues there's probably no future at VfL.

How de maizière wants to secure compensation for terror victims

How de maizière wants to secure compensation for terror victims

Federal Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière (CDU) has specified his demand for compensation for victims of terrorism. "If someone has been the victim of a terrorist attack, there must be a right to compensation. And regardless of the specific case and regardless of whether government agencies have made mistakes or not," de Maizière told this editorial team. "I will advocate for a new regulation to come into force retroactively so that the relatives of the victims of Breitscheidplatz can also claim it."

The attack on the Christmas market in Berlin a year ago had shown that the law "fundamentally needs to be revised". Regarding the criticism of many relatives who feel badly treated by state authorities, the minister noted that the Federal President had spoken to them very early on. The chancellor had repeatedly inquired about the status of the proceedings "and invited the bereaved families to a meeting even before the open letter".

In the discussion on victim compensation, Justice Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) called for the proposals to be implemented quickly. "The federal government must not leave the injured and survivors of an attack alone," he told this editi.
