Fröhlich bunter Auftakt der Vorweihnachtszeit: "Stroll on State" am 29. November in Rockford

Santa Claus bei „Stroll on State“ in Rockford

Die Einwohner von Rockford, Illinois, wissen zu jeder Jahreszeit zu feiern. Mit „Stroll on State“ hat sich ein weiterer Event fest im Veranstaltungskalender etabliert, der für Groß und Klein den fröhlichen Auftakt der Vorweihnachtszeit markiert und viele Besucher anzieht. Termin in diesem Jahr ist der 29. November von 16 bis 21 Uhr.

Bei „Stroll on State“ verwandeln sich Rockfords Innenstadt und das Ufer des Rock River in eine große Weihnachtsparty mit einer bunten Parade, Eisskulpturen, Feuerwerk, Open Air-Kino und vielen Verkaufsständen, an denen sich Weihnachtsgeschenke für die Lieben besorgen lassen. Natürlich ist auch Santa Claus zugegen, um von den Kindern ihre Wünsche fürs Fest zu erfahren. „Stroll on State“ findet weitgehend unter freiem Himmel statt, doch bieten zahlreiche Feuerstellen oder heiße Getränke und einige Indoor-Veranstaltungen mit Live-Musik gute Möglichkeiten, sich auch bei frostigen Temperaturen aufzuwärmen. Beliebt bei Familien sind zudem die Eislaufbahn und Kutschfahrten durch das festlich illuminierte Rockford. Grillstationen, Sonderaktionen der Restaurants und viele Naschereien wie über dem Feuer gebratene Marshmallows sorgen zusätzlich für echte Gaumenfreuden.

Rockford liegt etwas westlich von Chicago und ist von der Innenstadt aus mit dem Auto in rund 90 Minuten zu erreichen. Der Besuch von „Stroll on State“ am 29. November 2014 ist kostenfrei. www.strollonstate.com

Die Stadt Rockford im Winnebago County, rund 90 Meilen von Chicago entfernt, repräsentiert ein typisches Stück amerikanische Geschichte im Farmland des mittleren Westens. Nicht nur für Besucher von Chicago ist Rockford ein lohnendes Ausflugsziel, als Kontrast zu dieser Kultur- und Architektur-Weltmetropole. Rockford bietet auch eine Reihe von Attraktionen, wie das außergewöhnliche Coronado Theatre. Rockford verfügt über 3.000 Hotelzimmer.

Lindner FLOOR and more® a part of the new University and State Library of the University Darmstadt

Lindner FLOOR and more® a part of the new University and State Library of the University Darmstadt

University of Darmstadt

The new building of the University and State Library Hessen at Darmstadt Technical University (TU) arose with an investment of 74 million Euros. Therefore it opened as one of Germany“s most modern university buildings with approximately 80 kilometers of shelves with about 2.5 million books and magazines.

The new building of the University and State Library Hessen at Darmstadt Technical University (TU) arose with an investment of 74 million Euros. Therefore it opened as one of Germany“s most modern university buildings with approximately 80 kilometers of shelves with about 2.5 million books and magazines.

For most floor systems available on the market the high loads incurred create irresolvable problems.
However, the implementation is predestined for Lindner FLOOR and more® power. Architect and builder decided for Lindners Hollow Floor for heavy duty, since it was the imaginably safest subsoil for the precious books of the Federal State of Hessen.

Beyond that, more than 600 workstations for standing and sitting activities are arranged on the
openly designed gallery. For highly frequented areas the builder decided to use FLOOR and more® comfort with integrated floor heating. Heating and cooling systems incorporated into the floor panels which entail energy savings regulate the interior climate perfectly – both in summer and winter. Further advantages of the floor systems are a rapid reaction time, good heat reflection and high levels of efficiency.

This project impressively reflects flexibility and variety of Lindner Hollow Floors: Partly, FLOOR and
more®, FLOOR and more® power (10 kN- and 20 kN-type) as well as FLOOR and more® comfort power had to be combined in one area. Even FLOOR and more® hydro was applied in some areas.

To ensure the stock of books“ longterm conservation all shelving systems of the library are ventilated from below. This lead to high building service installation density. Hence delivery and installation of our floors happened „just in time“ in coordination with the furnisher of building services. Floor openings have already been EXW custom-fit adjusted to the air ducts.

Altogether, more than 15,000 m² Lindner Hollow Floors with different types of carpet, stone and
parquet covering were installed, including the ready-for-use connection of the floor heating to the
building services. The Lindner Group contributed that this magnificent building has been a big success.

dotSaarland GmbH Applies for .SAARLAND – The Domain Extension for the Federal State Saarland

The dotSaarland GmbH today successfully completed the application for the top level domain (TLD) .SAARLAND with ICANN (Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers). ICANN will evaluate the application along all others during the next 4 to 8 months. The initial evaluations will start on July 12, 2012. In addition to the dotSaarland GmbH, more than 1200 entities submitted their applications for one or more new TLDs. With a batching process starting on June 8, 2012, ICANN will determine which TLD applications are reviewed first.

With web sites such as www.example.saarland online content may be tailored exactly to the Saarland region and the Saarland people. Regional offers will be easily found and can be placed precisely. As members of the non-profit dotSaarland Association, the federal state Saarland, the Saarland Chamber of Commerce (IHK) and the Chamber of Crafts (HWK Saarland) support the project for a Saarland domain extension. The delegation of .SAARLAND to the dotSaarland GmbH will take place earliest in winter 2012. In this case, it will be possible to pre-register and register .SAARLAND domains with accredited registrars as of spring 2013.

„We hope to launch .SAARLAND in the course of the next year. As a geographic TLD, which is fully supported by the federal state of Saarland, we expect an unobstructed evaluation by ICANN“, explains Alexander Siffrin, CEO of dotSAARLAND GmbH.

The date for the examination of the .SAARLAND application by ICANN will depend on the digital archery called batching procedure for new TLDs. Presumably around 2000 applications were submitted until today, therefore ICANN plans to review them in batches, the first batch being the largest with 500 and each subsequent containing 400 applications.

Digital archery means, that each applicant uses an online system to choose a date and time in the future, for example June 15, 2012, 8 am. The applicant logs in and clicks the submit button as accurately as possible. The closer the click is to the preselected time, the sooner will the application be reviewed. To ensure a fair process, ICANN distinguishes five geographical regions: Europe, Asia/Australia/Pacific, Latin America/Caribbean, Africa and North America respectively.

The dotSaarland GmbH (nic.saarland) will be the registry for .SAARLAND domains. After applying successfully at ICANN, nic.saarland will organize and manage .SAARLAND domain registrations in accordance with the ICANN regulations. The dotSaarland GmbH is member of the non-profit dotSaarland Association and supports its activities. The statute of dotSaarland GmbH guarantees the establishment of an advisory council to the Association. The advisory council allows social and economic institutions of the Saarland to participate in the design and development of the TLD .SAARLAND – in the interest of all users.
