Opinions from the reading jury


I was constantly conflicted about my opinion of Nadia. Sometimes I wanted to shake her, so that she comes to her senses, sometimes I wanted to comfort her, because I could understand her very well.
After her divorce .

I was constantly conflicted with my opinion of Nadia. Sometimes I wanted to shake her so that she would come to her senses, sometimes I wanted to comfort her because I could understand her very well.
After her divorce she actually felt well. Lived in a shared apartment with a young, handsome man. Only platonically, of course. The only downer was their unemployment. After a vacation in Turkey her passion for the Orient was ignited.
She learned how to prepare Arabic dishes and belly dance.
When she received a call from a Karim who wanted to visit her, she didn’t know what hit her at first. Nadia was recommended to Karim by a couple who were friends of his. She fell in love with this wonderful voice right away. So when she picked him up from the Nuremberg train station, her knees got downright wobbly.
At home she spoiled him with Arabic dishes. Karim tells her about his life. Often he chuckled (laughed) which gave Nadia a tingle in her stomach. To make a long story short, they met in October 1995. November 1995 they got married in Amsterdam.
I had my problems with it. Karim already had a wife and three children.
He really wanted Nadia as a second wife. Since a divorce is impossible for a devout Muslim, he now had to take care of two women.
I wondered: Is it really Nadia?? Really? You as a self-employed woman, who had just divorced a cheater, now want to become a second wife? And that veiled from head to toe.
Of course, Karim was so vulnerable and lonely. He needed a woman who would see eye to eye with him was!
Nadia should still have to gnaw on this statement many a time.

Siemens Mobility doubles the output of its photovoltaic system on the roof of its plant in Vienna. There the company manufactures night and subway trains.

More sun in subways and night trains: What sounds like an oxymoron has long been a reality for Siemens Mobility Austria. The company has been producing subways and night trains at its plant in Vienna-Simmering with electricity from a photovoltaic system with a capacity of 500 kilowatts, which is located on the roof of the factory halls. Now this plant has been expanded to one megawatt.

Veal breast with ribs, raw | Arthur's daughter cooks. by Astrid Paul, the blog for Food, Wine, Travel & Love!

Usually a breast of veal is stuffed. With this the cook wants to prove his artistry, I guess. Because this is not particularly delicate, rather – like most fillings – a bit boring. But braised, this strange meat produces a sauce that you lick off your fingers! ( Wolfram Siebeck)

It’s all over for Meshkatolzahra Safi in the second round of the junior Australian Open, but the 17-year-old is still a winner. She has become the first Iranian woman to make it to a Grand Slam tournament.

Australia Open tennis player Meshkatolzahra Safi from Iran

Results and emotional worlds are not always in harmony. Meshkatolzahra Safi can feel like a winner, even though her match against Sofia Costoulas from Belgium is clearly lost. Her performance in the junior women’s competition at the Australian Open in Melbourne is too memorable to ignore. And it’s not because the 17-year-old is on court in the 30-plus degree Australian heat wearing a headscarf, long-sleeved shirt and leggings. She simply says: "I’ve been used to playing undercover since I was nine years old," she tells the Australian newspaper. I continue to do so. That is part of me."

Pregnant after miscarriage – 5 reasons why everything is different.

After a roller coaster ride of emotions, chaos, confusion, sadness and joy there is a ray of hope for us. Our vacation in Gran Canaria bore fruit. We are pregnant again. Pregnant again and finally after miscarriage.

Last year, too, the joy was great when I held a positive pregnancy test in my hands. Full of enthusiasm and overjoyed, I threw all our travel plans overboard and concentrated fully on the pregnancy. I was full of confidence and never thought in my life that a miscarriage would burst our dreams like soap bubbles.

I will never forget the moment when I was sitting happily in the waiting room, looking forward to a glimpse of the ultrasound monitor and the life that was tenderly growing inside me. And then, in the next moment, comes the big shock, when the doctor announces to me. "Your baby’s heart has stopped beating". I fell into a black hole and our plans collapsed like a house of cards.
