I'm sorry, but that's completely wrong. In this context (contests, tests, generally things that are scored or evaluated) abschneiden simply means "to perform".
The sign fully reads:
>We are giving away these balls to children visiting our store so that the next generation will perform better in the world championship.
Your president is an habitual liar who admits he makes shit up as he goes along.
Does this give you any reason to believe what he says, or should you better believe a statement from the German federal police agency?

At least we have no problems with tits.

I really try hard not to become anti-american and every time I'm on the verge of succeeding somebody like you (or a GOP candidate) comes along and I'm back at step one.

Fortunately I need no allowance. I just do it.
If you capitalize it, Google goes with "ark", which is actually correct ("ark" can be shorthand for "Ark of the Covenant").
However, translation tools like this shouldn't be used for words and short phrases: they always need context, and so work best with complete sentences. If you type in "Die Bundeslade stand im Tempel" Google gives you "The ark of the covenant stood in the temple."
For individual words, you need a dictionary. For example, Leo suggests "ark of the covenant" and "ark", while dict.cc gives you the choice of "Ark of the Covenant" and "Ark of the Testimony" (which it notes is rare).
My german family and all the germans around use drip coffee makers like this.

Inb4 anyone links to the Snopes article (http://www.snopes.com/language/misxlate/berliner.asp)
For some reason, the urban legend of him making an error and saying he's a doughnut keeps being told, especially by non-native speakers. To a German, that line was never anything else than Kennedy considering himself to be a citizen of Berlin, especially not in context (grammatically, all the indefinite article does is add emphasis to the whole notion). Nobody laughed. It wasn't discussed as a gaffe.
Equivalent: "It has been called the center of the world. It's certainly the planet's most exciting city, and I feel proud of being able to say: I am a New Yorker." Would any English speaker giggle at this on account of me saying I'm a magazine?
I kind of wish more people would make the jump to apps like Threema or TextSecure. Every now and again I try to get people to make the jump, but the 1,99 price tag on Threema is apparently a big enough barrier.

The Anonymous German Facebook page is a cesspool. It is and was a propaganda page for a very long time. You get the point as soon as you scroll through their posts. For example, at the moment they are heavily bashing on German Media for being allegedly biased while they use RT as a source on a daily basis. They hate on Islam and use Nazi-slang like "Lügenpresse". Just take a look at this graph and you get why. Another example for bias? While totally supporting PeGiDa as the true movement they discredit the Anti-Demos as organzied by zionist goverment agencies. This is NOT an Anonymous page. I know about this 'everyone can be anonymous', but the admins of this page are AGAINST what anonymous stands for. Because last time I checked, spreading propaganda and hate on the internet wasn't on the menu.
FYI: If you are asking "Why is this happening in Germany?" just know it is happening in A LOT of places.
Might need to scroll down through the States to get to the various countries/cities around the globe.
What is the maximum duration of parental leave? For both mother and father, the maximum duration of parental leave is 36 months. There is no statutory minimum duration per se.
When can fathers take parental leave? During the first three years of the child's life, 12 months of parental leave can be taken as a father. The remaining 24 months can be divided between the child's third and eighth birthday.
How long do fathers usually take parental leave? It is particularly common for fathers to take 2 months of parental leave as fathers, as this increases their entitlement to parental allowance from 12 to 14 months if the mother is also on parental leave.

Well, the CC licence states that you must provide a link to the licence itself, and you mustn't suggest that the licensor endorses you in any way. Your wording suggests that Scholz was commissioned by you.
I agree that sending you a cease-and-desist letter for something like this is incredibly mean-spirited; but I'm not certain you can claim that you followed the Creative Commons licencing requirements to the letter. Nobody can possibly predict how a judge would rule in this case, and it would be dangerous for me to give you legal advice.

According to the latest Speedtest Global Index, the Federal Republic of Germany is currently ranked 31st with 69.4 Mbit/s in the ranking of the countries with the fastest Internet access.

Damn, and before I moved to Germany I thought US internet was already pretty mediocre.

Just the same.

Use free software such as LibreOffice or OpenOffice.
I'm very happy with Private Internet Access. Well worth the $40 per year for me.
But what /u/jhiojhiop says is true, if all you want it for is torrenting, you may want to look into the alternatives. You won't get any nasty letters for downloading things, it's the seeding that gets you in trouble.
If your German isn't all that great and want to hang around other English speakers, there is an Irish Pub and Aussie Bar (Killian's and Ned Kelly's) in the corner of the streets at the back left of the Frauenkirche.
*edit: They are also pretty good bars, not just if you want to speak English.
I think it's worth paying for a VPN. Private Internet Access is good - can use one subscription for 5 different devices (phones too). Don't use free ones as they aren't "really" free and not so secure.
As far as I can gather:
Kodi is apparently quite relieved that the EU has definitely ruled "pirate boxes" illegal. If you're using one of these (and this probably the case if you're getting subscription channels at a reduced rate), just know that the service you're using is in breach of the law, and that there is no technical or other support.
While Uber exists in Germany, it's a niche player with spotty service and often weird pricing (some might say they profit mostly from tourists expecting an experience similiar to the US).

That is a very easy question to me.
Below is a link in English with some easy but insanely beautiful hiking tours. I did almost all of them at least once and can recommend Walchensee but you just read and pick any you like.
The second thing you do is you go to trip advisor or air bnb and look for a place close to the hiking trial. It will definitely be a town with <10k people but all of them are lovely in these areas.
If you have question feel free to pm me.
/edit Ok some of the tours are actually for advanced hiking
It's a type of Weihnachtspyramide. Here's a similar one I found on amazon by searching for "Weihnachtspyramide hängend" (hanging christmas pyramid).
I can recommend AirVPN. Their client temporarily blocks all connections through the firewall that aren't being tunneled through the VPN. So if the VPN suddenly disconnects, all traffic stops. I'm sure plenty of other vpns offer this too, though.
Just pay for a VPN, Private Internet Access is only around 3 dollars per month if you pay for the whole year at once. Also, if you didn't download anything really new, you can stop worrying, I did it for years without getting caught.
At this time of year, the best part of Cologne and Frankfurt am Main is the Rhine Valley between them.
Frankfurt has some nice spots, but most tourists manage to see the city within one day.
Cologne is similar, the cathedral is nice and the Roman-German museum next to it is really interesting (although it would probably take several visits to take it all in), but apart from the zoo and more museums and sampling the local cuisine there is not that much to do.
I would thus recommend you focus on the smaller towns in between - Mainz, Bingen, Koblenz - don't miss out on the scenic view of the Rhine Valley between Bingen and Koblenz.
I looked it up earlier here. Best case scenario they gave me was June, but as an upper limit end of August. With AZ (12 weeks between shots) this could result in the second shot being in November.
The only german node.js Hoster I know is uberspace. I host my sites at all-inkl too and they don't offer node.js.

We separate eggs. If you can't do it with sliding the yolk from one side to another in a shell you can find egg separators on Amazon https://www.amazon.de/dp/B00I4716DQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_i_CHGTF0DW7VAPFRRGY7W6.
That works with a soft plastic bottle, too, I think, I was drilled to learn the egg shell method from my granny, so I am just doing it like that.
ExpressVPN. Super fast and works well for Netflix and the like. I used to have Private Internet Access but too many services (like Netflix) could always detect when I was using it and they refused to work properly.
A lot of people recommend Private Internet Access here on Reddit IIRC (in terms of usability, not because of Netflix).
Here's a list of short interviews with VPN operators.
Get the DB App for your phone, make sure you check "live-auskunft" to check for connections. You shuld still be able to travel the country though it's inconvenient but not the whole railway company is striking only parts of it.
That's a beautiful photograph.
However, I notice you've forgotten the attribution, which is legally required for this particular photograph, as it's released under a Creative Commons BY-SA licence. So, for the sake of completeness: the copyright owner is André Karwath, and this is his profile on Deviant Art.
I recommend OpenStreetMap. The default map layer shows foot paths fairly well, and there is also a specialised cycling layer.
If you'll be moving, it's a probably a good idea to invest in an ADFC cycling map (the ADFC is the German cycling association) for the area.
i would really think any bioladen would suffice. god knows there are a million of them.
OpenStreetMap (which is also used as the base for many apps and websites, like OsmAnd) has a very active user base in Germany, and particularly the big cities are mapped to a much greater level of detail than Google Maps. I still use Google Maps when travelling by car, as its real-time traffic and road closure information is really useful there. However, I usually switch to OpenStreetMap for foot and bike travel - as it shows me many more non-vehicle paths, with pertinent details such as whether a path has steps, whether it’s paved or unpaved, etc.
Plus, OSM is open source (always a plus) and I can edit and add to it to continuously improve it. According to my badly translated understanding of the Mapy.cz website, it uses OpenStreetMap as its default map.
A vpn service can be installed on your PC or mobile device. I personally recommend Mulvard or ExpressVPN.
They are monthly services which you have to pay for. Yearly contracts make them quite inexpensive.
Once installed, you can choose a server in a different region, such as the USA. Your computers internet traffic goes into the tunnel encrypted and emerges out on the internet at your target server location (USA) in this instance.
So when you access a website or HBO service while your VPN is running, they think your are connecting from the USA since this is where your traffic emerges out onto the internet.
Germany and your local German ISP cannot inspect this traffic and see what you are doing since you are adding a layer of encryption from your PC to the target VPN server.
You will still need to pay for HBO service to access their content. Doing this is not illegal.
Feel free to ask any questions.
We're part of the lucky, arbitrary few whose licenses transfer with very little work. When I first came to Germany from NC, that was not the case for me. But a NC license can be transferred instantly to a WI one, and now when I'm back in Germany this year, I transfer it yet again with no extra testing. Flawless legal logic on Germany's part. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'd recommend downloading a Führerschein study app and spending some time on it. It's free and it will help you understand some of the differences between US and DE road laws. When I was on an NC license and thought I'd need further testing, I used Auto-Führerschein. There's a Führerschein Multilingual version if your German's not great yet.
For your safety and comfort, and in light of how arbitrary it is how Germany chooses which Amis need further testing and which of us don't, I just think it's a good idea for all of us to become a little bit aware, even if we don't legally have to. Hope it helps!
It won't help with your situation, but please make sure to record bad reception with the official "dead zone" reporting app. That's probably the only leverage we have.
FYI Germay has a few military bases here in the US. They have a military base on the property of Dulles International Airport outside Washington DC. Though it's capability as a traditional base is almost non-existant, but rather it's the ingress/egress point for all German military equipment into and out of the US.
I believe this is the closest military base to the US Capital Building of any foreign government. The Canadians however have the closest embassy, it's across the street and down a block, they could almost shoot a super soaker of warm maple syrup at the Capitol and hit it.
To stay on top of German public holidays, you can subscribe to this webcalendar.
For Allerheiligen it says: "Christlicher Feiertag. Nur in Baden-Württemberg, Bayern, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Rheinland-Pfalz und Saarland."
I've had to do stuff on a server on such a connection via ssh. That's where you start to praise mosh. The guy had two separate satellite connections for two sites across the street so anything between those two sites had double that latency. You can't imagine the sanity toll it takes.
You can download public available documentaries etc. via MediathekView quite comfortbable. It might only work with a German IP though: http://zdfmediathk.sourceforge.net/
Another option would be Onlinetvrecorder, were you can programme and download German (and British, American and others) TV channels. I pay 1€/month and use it since 2007 or so. It's quite comfortable as long as you have a decent downstream.
This open source software gives you convenient access to all the public broadcasting content online. As a lot of the content is not archived and thus removed after a while, it may come in handy to download films of interest with this software to watch later or save bandwidth for the second watch. If it sometimes doesn't work, try the URL in another player or give it manually to VLC. As this list is overwhelming at first and a lot of stuff is probably uninteresting to you, I recommend to start with "nano" on 3sat or "Quarks & Co" on ARD.
Also depends on city, there might be local job boards or similar. Also: What's your background / education?
You can also download the app Post & DHL (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.dhl.paket - I don't have the link for iPhone) and buy the 1,55€ Großbrief directly. You can opt to get a code which you can write directly on the envelope instead of glueing the stamp. It's pretty convenient and you don't even need a printer.
There are two ways to pick up stuff from the Packstation. By Postnummer and 4-digit pickup code, or by notification slip.
If the parcel was addressed directly to the Packstation using your Postnummer, or if you chose yourself to have it rerouted, or if they were able to match your name and address to a registered customer account with a Postnummer, you need your Postnummer and pickup code. The pickup code arrives via e-mail, or you can install the Post & DHL app, which will also show it.
If the parcel was rerouted because you were not at home, and they failed to match your name and address to a registered customer account with a Postnummer, you should have received a notification slip. If you're sure you should have (because the aforementioned app won't display a pickup code) but didn't, contact DHL customer support.
Should be no problem if you activate the “internet kill switch” and/or “app kill switch” in case of VPN disconnect. At least NordVPN has this option.
So, if the VPN drops, the torrenting process (or the entire connection) would automatically get killed.
Betternet is selling your data and leaking your IP. Don't use a "free" VPN. Check /r/vpn for some quality recommendations.
And just fyi, circumventing a law means you are still acting illegally, just far less likely to be caught.
I use unblock us as well. I have it set up on a second router and stream Netflix and Hulu via Apple TV, Playstation, and a Chromecast. Works like a charm.
Unblock us is 5 bucks/month or $50/year. It's well worth it. I used StrongVPN before but got much slower download speeds.
If you want a similar alternative then Zenmate is it. Only Germany and the US though where Netflix is available, more countries are in the premium version.
But seriously, use a dns service like
This won't help in this case, but for the next times, here is how I torrent when in Germany. I own a VPS (3€/month) in another country, on which I have "deluge". My server is torrenting and I download from my server.
> I am surprised on how many murders are in Germany yet it is not a topic of conversation. I always assumed
> Germany was one of the safest places to live.
Please define "many". In 2017 there have been 785 registered cases of murder* in Germany. That's still 785 too much of course. But e.g. the city of Chicago alone saw 650 murders in the same year and that's just one city of a country much bigger than Germany.
> You can see how Gums families moved over time by selecting different census years. The Gums family name was found in the USA, the UK, Canada, and Scotland between 1841 and 1920. The most Gums families were found in the USA in 1920. In 1880 there were 26 Gums families living in Wisconsin. This was about 41% of all the recorded Gums's in the USA. Wisconsin had the highest population of Gums families in 1880.
I do not recall ever seeing that family name in the patient records at my wife's medical office here in Germany.

You know how these disputes are settled? With numbers. Stopping distance can be computed for several combinations of vehicle type and speed. Let me see if I can find some:
car, 50 km/h on dry asphalt = 27m (including 1s for reaction time) (site used)
motorcycle, 50 km/h, same dry asphalt and 1s reaction time = 28m (site used)
So, at first sight you are right in this discussion. I am really curious if anyone can provide better info on the topic.

(It's the german wiki- so... it's in german. if you need to translate ist, use DeepL)

Well, I looked it up in Wikipedia, and it seems to be tiny (~4000 inhabitants). The article is in German, but it has quite a few pictures and you can use DeepL to translate. It's better than Google translate. Despite being so small, they seem to be making both local beer and wine there (the brewery is mentioned and shown in the article, and on a picture you can see wine growing).
The closest city is Freiburg, which is a beautiful medieval city, which has a university and therefore lots and lots of young people; it's well known for being green/alternative.
The whole area is the warmest part of Germany with the best weather usually, and with close ties to the neighboring regions in France and Switzerland.

There is a pretty convinient app called "Darf ich das?" ("Am I allowed to do this?") which quickly displays Covid restrictions for your local or even multiple zipcodes. Not an official app, but as far as I know it's information has been been reliable and up to date. Several friends of mine are using it regularly.
Is it acrylic paint? I am not an expert, but google spat out "Farbflussverbesserer", which is a direct translation to "Flow improver"
Amazon.de has got it.
You might want to check out the app NINA. It will list hazards and warnings around your location.
In my town there are regular siren tests at noon of the first Saturday in each month (not listed in NINA btw.)
Sirens going off at 3 in the night does sound serious though - a bigger fire probably.
> There is simply nothing similar to Netflix in Germany

Ah ok, neat! If automated car factories are your thing, maybe you should visit The Transparent Factory of Volkswagen in Dresden.

> What do you mean Google gave up on street view? Where I live, you can use it.
You can use it, what there is of it. Go go Google Maps, zoom out until you can see the whole of Germany, pull out the little man and see how much of Germany goes blue, compared with most of its neighbours.
There were so many complaints and requests for the blurring of properties that Google simply gave up, and currently has no plans to update Street View in Germany (which is why the images that are there are all at least five years out of date).
> Old people believe what they read in the newspaper.
It's not just old people, it really isn't. People of all ages and all walks of life got spooked by the idea of Google photographing and cataloguing their homes, and the popular media caught on to this and stirred up a huge mass hysteria. Nearly all of it was baseless scaremongering, but that's my point: Germans value their privacy.
> they make a point in NOT talking to each other to exchange information
Yep, and that's in part because the general public resist the idea of what they think would be a "Big Brother society".
> I think the paranoia stems much more from the recent discovery of the NSA shenanigans
That fed into it, but it definitely predates the NSA shenanigans. I can still remember the protests in the 1990s when students feared that putting some of their records on a computer database and allowing institutions to share them would allow the government to spy on them. This was when I first heard the phrase "gläserner Bürger", and articles in the weeklies were being illustrated with pictures of a person sitting at a computer in a room made of glass. This documentary was made in 2009, and is typical of the way the media feeds this kind of paranoia (just watch the first scene, a depiction of every German's nightmare scenario).
> But am I the only one who is surprised about the larger diversity in stores in the US compared to Germany?
Hmm, I'm not sure that this is actually the case. Keep in mind that several German chains are actually cooperatives ("Genossenschaften"), where the individual merchants own the chain (collectively), but where individual stores within the chain can vary considerably. Edeka and Rewe as Germany's two biggest grocery chains are important examples, even though they have non-coop subsidiaries as well. For example, Edeka Zurheide is probably quite different from your local generic Edeka store.
As someone who recently needed a new pair of glasses, Fielmann definitely wasn't the only local option I had. There were at least a dozen opticians, three of them chains. Just to provide a concrete example.

Have you considered taking the train instead? You can look for tickets here, it should be cheaper the further in advance you book and it's a direct train.
If you're set on driving, have a look through Hertz, Sixt or Europcar. You should be able to specify a place to pick it up that suits you. Just take in to account you'll be paying for fuel too. I'd take the train personally.

Person that lives in Nürnberg here.
She will not stick out like a sore thumb, Nürnberg is a trade fair, Tourist oriented city, If she is just for business here she will not have much problems regarding the language, every major orientation sign is in English too.
Subway and train announcements are bi-lingual at the central stations. If she aims for the younger people she will have a high chance that she can speak English (well what they consider English) with them.
We got many African and Asian people, the migration rate is around 30% of non-Germans. Only thing she has to watch out for is flocks of young Russian and/or Turkish boys, they tend to be a bit cheeky, but mostly harmless to women.
As for your lack of knowing German culture: Germans LOVE order, which does not mean that is it there all the time, but the wish is there. Which anecdotally leads to the fact that even pedestrians stick to the right side of the sidewalk, so they wont bump into each other or have a "little" dance to decide who goes where. Traffic signs MUST be obeyed, by everyone(!). I have to agree with "fffggghhhnnn" that the only slight dangerous points can be very late at night on a weekend when people are drunk, Sometimes the neo-nazis rise from the dust then, but the police is not far, and very alert of this situations.
Nürnberg is a (i guess for an Indian) pretty small city of a half million people (calculating the suburbs in). People that talk to each other on the street are rarely full Germans, They tend to speak a bit lower in volume then your average world person (ok this is more of a European thing i admit). That is one of the few things that can lead you to stick out.
Plus, yes she should pack for very cold and rainy days.
PS: Depending on what diet rules your religion has it can be a bit frustrating, German cuisine depends largely on pork, milk and wheat.
PPS: why am i even writing here!? there is a wiki for such things: http://wikitravel.org/en/Germany
I don't live near Wiesbaden, but here's what i suggest (guess better and more suggestions will follow):
Lots of restaurants and bars have students or just younger folk as waiters, and they normally speak a decent amount of english, so she can maybe give it a try and visit some restaurants and just ask if there's someone speaking english. I would suggest asking the concierge for recommendations.
I would not recommend visiting family run restaurants (e.g. asian fast food shops) cause most of the time they don't have anyone who's able to at least understand english.
She can also try and buy some "normal" food for herself, shouldn't be a problem, as all the prices are written down.
How long will she be in Wiesbaden?

I guess you are traveling by car?
The Harz was mentioned before and it's probably one of the best options since it's just a little detour of your route. Torfhaus/Oderbrück - Brocken and return is quite easy to do if you aren't in an abmysal shape. It's a modern trail, all sections which might be boggy are covered with footbridges, so normal sport shoes will do the job if it is not raining. On sunny weather bring sunscreen, you surpass the tree line. A short steep part is following old concrete plates which were used by the former GDR border patrol.
Another option futher to the west might be Sauerland southeast of Dortmund. The hills are a bit flatter compared to Harz, but also has some nice trails. Just have been there once around Brilon Wald, it was a really nice walk.

In Garmisch, I recommend hiking here . It’s probably the most popular, but it’s so beautiful. You could also take the Zugspitze and hike around at the top. You could even rent a bike and bike around Eibsee if you’re in a rush.
Heidelberg and München can be done in a day or two each.
Not too familiar with Innsbruck, but you need to check https://reopen.europa.eu frequently to check the restrictions.
Probably forgot it's enforced. It's illegal pretty much everywhere, but only a few places allow rights holders to go after seeders. Torrenting got a very bad reputation in Germany because of that. The other night I was downloading 0AD (a free and opensource game) for a friend and they freaked out when they realised it was a torrent.

Sorry, it's not what you looked for, but you can download Busuu. It has a few Languages, including German, and you can ask the Community about your German. It helps me too learning Japanese (:
Depends. Usually when construction works are going on they use whatever sign they have at hand.
Also: There is the "Richtgeschwindigkeit" on all German Autobahns, which is 130 km/h.
Give Duolingo a spin. There's also the option to help translate documents for extra practice (also how they make their $$$).
Do you have any opportunity to get to Germany a month or so before you begin studying? If you have some classroom under your belt, I bet you'd pick a lot of relatively soon after you arrived there.
There is another alternative. It's called ZenMate. It's a VPN.
The free version is AFAIK restricted to US proxies but that's enough to watch US NetFlix wich offers much more compared to the german version. I have both installed but I prefer ProxMate for YouTube because I do not want all of my traffic to be routed via some company in Berlin.
I use chargemap it's one of the most accurate and reliable apps for finding a charging location.
Also mini charging app is pretty good, obviously because I drive a Cooper SE
Charging is still free at some Lidl and Aldi locations as well as Kaufland and Ikea.
My mother learned cooking by this one:
Doennigs KOCHBUCH - Das ostpreußische Familien-Kochbuch - Der Küchen-Klassiker aus OSTPREUSSEN mit über 1500 Rezepten - RAUTENBERG Verlag: Das ... aus Ostpreußen. Über 1500 Rezepte https://www.amazon.de/dp/3800330466/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_M5QSD1168G7V7336SJ4R
They do sell them at Amazon. Whether Amazon will ship them to Poland, I don't know.
But if you're willing to cross over the border into Germany, any large supermarket should have them, you don't need to go to the Metro, just go to one you can reach easily.
You can also buy them on eBay, sellers on there should ship to Poland as long as you pay for shipping.
Yes, you should be fine. According to this website the Niedersachsenticket is valid for busses, trams or the subway in Hamburg from 9 a.m. of the day the ticket is valid to 3 a.m. next day. Keep in mind that when taking the train to Bremen and Oldenburg you are only eligible for the slower regional trains (Regionalzüge) and cannot use high speed rail. The easiest way is to buy it via the DB Navigator App.
Moderna is OK.
We also have a digital version of the certificate with a QR code. But our qr codes might not be compatible.
You can install the CovPass app on your phone and try to scan your qr code.
I don't know if it's available in English, but it's pretty easy to use, you only scan your qr code and it gets added to the wallet.

Nothing in Germany is accidental, everything is arranged and regulated ;)
Anyway, I have NordVPN myself and Private Internet Access is always a good choice.
I don't actually download myself. I use Spotify and Netflix + Amazon Prime Video over an Amazon Fire TV.
