Travel: Germany's glacier continue to melt

The #1 Order to Never Make at a Steakhouse, According to Chefs

  The #1 Order to Never Make at a Steakhouse, According to Chefs Whether you're dining at an upscale restaurant or a steakhouse chain, this mistake could cost you a great experience.Steak. The word conjures up images of luxury and decadence, and when it's on the menu, nearly everyone's ears perk up. America is known for its big slabs of beef, dripping with juices and served with decadent sauces alongside requisite creamy spinach and crispy potatoes. And the restaurant industry has always answered with swanky steakhouses that carry every cut imaginable. But not all popular steakhouses are white-tablecloth locations with expensive wine lists and many are affordable weeknight alternatives for the family.

Berchtesgaden. The glaciers of Germany continue to melt: the ice of the blue ice glacier, the snow speaker on the Zugspitze and the Höllentalferner has decreased significantly this year. The worst is the worst to understand the shrinkage on the Watzmann glacier in the Berchtesgaden Alps. "We find it difficult to determine the area at the Watzmann glacier," said Christoph Mayer, Glaziologist at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences.

On the one hand, it lies in a hollow and is therefore relatively thick, so that the loss on the surface is less noticeable. On the other hand, he is covered in parts of a shatd layer, which makes it difficult to determine the size - but sometimes preserves it from further melting, said Mayer. Finally, the glacier was still around five hectares in size.

Misrepresentation of Germany’s Data on Unverified COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects

  Misrepresentation of Germany’s Data on Unverified COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects Viral claims have repeatedly misrepresented unverified data from a U.S. vaccine safety system that encourages reports of any potential side effects -- whether they're likely to be caused by the vaccine or not. Now we're seeing the same phenomenon with a similar system in Germany. Some have wrongly claimed Germany found the COVID-19 vaccine caused "serious side effects" in a large number of people.

In addition to the heat, the German glaciers gave Sahara dust this year. In March he had been deposited as a reddish layer on ski slopes and glaciers. Because darker areas absorb more energy of the sunlight, this accelerated the melt.

of the five German glaciers is the worst affected by the southern snowman, as it was said. He could completely disappear next year. "Maybe he will last two or three years. But that's sure to be the candidate who will be the first to disappear," said Mayer.

The Höllentalferner keeps itself particularly well, most recently 16.7 hectares in size. It is also in a deep hollow and is regularly fed by avalanches because of its location. "Our forecast is that the Höllentalferner will survive the longest because it is now the biggest," says Mayer. "At the glacier we assume that we still have 15 to 20 years here." The five German glaciers also include the northern snowman and the blue ice in the Berchtesgaden Alps. (dpa)
