Adac: 2010 was a year of breakdowns

Munich, 1. February 2011 – adac was busier in 2010 than ever before. In total, the club’s approximately 1700 roadside assistance personnel and their road service partners were involved in 4.250.724 breakdowns. Compared to the previous year, this was an increase of 8.1 percent.

The highest number of operations on 4. January 2010

One reason for this, according to the automobile club, was the harsh winter at the beginning of last year. January 4. January 2010 was the busiest.798 breakdowns, was the day with the highest number of calls. But it was not only the icy cold that caused weak batteries and other technical defects. In the summer, too, the roadside assistance teams had to cope with extreme heat of over 35 degrees celsius. The changed travel behavior of vacationers – according to the adac, more and more vacationers are traveling by car – is another reason for the high number of breakdowns.

Battery as most frequent cause

Defective or flat batteries were the most frequent technical cause of breakdowns to which roadside assistance was called. Over 900.000 times the vehicle was jump-started. Other breakdowns were caused by ignition systems and tires, followed by starters and alternators. But not always when the adac was called, it was due to a defect in the car. Almost 100.000 motorists needed help because they had locked themselves out. Around 25.000 times they were able to continue their journey "fuel donation" fuel donation. In 186.000 cases, adac helped at the scene of the accident, secured the road or provided first aid.

Philip hammond presented the draft budget for 2019 with multi-spending and threatens his party colleagues with the consequences of one "no deal"-brexit

The british minister of finance philip hammond is one "remainer" – an opponent of the eu’s exit from the eu. He is a member of the conservative party. That does not make his job easier. Whatever he does, rough parts of his own parliamentary group and the party membership will always harm him – partly right – to use his office for a campaign to the growth of the brexit vote.

Softwarequality: amazon releases codeguru for productive use

SoftwareQuality: Amazon releases Codeguru for productive use

As part of its last-year-old customer event re: invent amazon had already introduced the service codeguru. Now developers are the tool for quality control and code optimization released in a version (ga – general availability) available for productive use. Codeguru uses the analysis of machine-learning algorithms to create proposals for more efficient codes design and contribute to a higher quality.

The tool adapted to use with a variety of aws services combines two components, a reviewer and a profiler. Codeguru reviewer can integrate developers like other prousing tools in their development process when they import new java code into their repository. Codeguru not only support aws codecommit, but also github, github enterprise or bitbucket cloud. Codeguru reviewer then open a pull request and starts checking automatically. The integrated ml models have been amazon with code review data of more than 10.000 open source projects trained on github.

Check and examine

The second component, the codeguru profiler, should help developers to find their "most expensive lines code", as it is called in the amazon blog post to envision of the tool. For this purpose, the profiler developers gives insights into the runtime behavior of their software to provide any performance bottlenecks and to initiate measures to resolve as well as the general optimization of the code. The aim is to improve the java code (or more jvm languages) so far that the compute costs for use of the software on cloud services such as aws lambda, amazon ec2, amazon ecs, aws fargate or aws elastic beanstalk, but also on-premises, have to be kept low.

About the opposed, but often successful argumentation strategies of germany’s large carbon dioxide ier rwe

Nuclear power? Helps against climate change. Climate change? Is not a concrete danger. The argumentation strategies of germany’s large carbon dioxide ier rwe are quite opposed, amazingly multi-faceted and often crowned success. Without them, the bundestag was probably not allowed to build the coarse carbon dioxide spin in europe

Contrusion freedom looks a little different: on the one hand, the essener energieriesieg rwe emphasizes its nuclear contribution to the reduction of the greenhouse effect: "our nuclear power plants", four at the number, "avoid around 40 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions in the year."The exit from nuclear energy, rwe is talking about, from the point of view of climate care. On the other hand, the company dear in september 2006 to deny his salaries before the kolner oberlandesgericht that the greenhouse effect is a real problem at all. The lawyers, staffed by the renowned law firm baker mckenzie, languages of "subjective perception" of a "adopted [n] danger", which is "neither concretely opposite".

When how where?

For them as a consumer means that after clicking on "pay" essentially often a security query of your credit institution ("card outstanding bank") can appear.
