Bookseller carrying out deliveries himself

Hermann Arndt-Riethmüller, a bookstore owner from Tübingen, delivered books to his customers personally on Saturday, 28 March. Many bookstores are relying on online business in times of corona shutdown. Once orders are received, the books have to reach the people who want them and Hermann makes that possible for his customers. While standing in the bright sunshine Hermann explains: “Whether I cycle through Schönbuch, or around here …”, it makes little difference to him. tun032801 Impressionen zum Leben in Zeiten der Corona-Pandemie: Foto: tünews INTERNATIONAL; Wolfgang Sannwald, 28.03.2020 Latest information on Corona: Click here  1,623 total views

Start of Daylight saving time

Coming Sunday, 29.03.2020, the time will be changed in Germany. At 2 a.m. at night the time will be moved forward to 3 a.m. This will make the night an hour shorter.  The initial idea of changing time dates back to 1784, when the then American politician Benjamin Franklin allegedly considered this because he wanted to save up on candles. In Germany the time change was introduced in 1916.  2021 will, however, most likely be the end of time changes in the EU countries. tun037203 Foto: tünews INTERNATIONAL; Oula Mahfouz, 27.03.2020  5,509 total views,  2 views today
