The district head of Leopoldstadt, Uschi Lichtenegger (Greens), who had sharply criticized the city’s ban on alcohol, hit in the same line.

In addition, one must think about lifting the alcohol ban in homeless facilities. Because those affected need a place to drink somewhere, so the thought.

District chief sounds the alarm

The district head of Leopoldstadt, Uschi Lichtenegger (Greens), who had sharply criticized the city’s ban on alcohol, hit in the same line. In an interview with the APA on Thursday, she confirmed that homeless people were already being displaced into the surrounding areas, such as Praterstrasse, Heinestrasse and Kaiserwiese. “It cannot be a goal of sustainable politics to drive sick people into adjacent residential and green areas,” she annoyed. “Even alcoholics have the right to participate in public spaces.”

Lichtenegger also demanded more money for the expansion of social work and health-related offers on the square. As an example, she cited the Caritas Louisebus, which offers free medical care and is currently at the Praterstern once a week. “It should be there every day,” she said. You will try to get an appointment with the designated mayor Michael Ludwig (SPÖ) as soon as possible. “The alcohol ban was made unilateral. I ask myself, has the cooperation in this area between the city and the district been terminated?” When the drug scene on Karlsplatz was dissolved, a social work concept had been worked out in advance. That was not the case at the Praterstern. “Which is really amazing,” she said indignantly.

Alcohol ban at the Praterstern

: District head Uschi Lichtenegger criticizes the ban – some homeless people have migrated to the Prater.

With the

Alcohol ban at the Praterstern

it shouldn’t be done: Vienna wants to set up targeted care for alcoholics. This was announced by Health and Social Welfare Councilor Sandra Frauenberger (SPÖ) on Thursday on the sidelines of a press conference with the APA. The concept should be developed with the involvement of social organizations and the hospital association.

The head of department did not want to reveal anything more specific. However, the advance should be seen as an accompanying measure to the ban on the Praterstern issued the previous week.123 essay Because just banning is not enough, so the tenor. The targeted care will not only be limited to those affected there, but should also include all alcoholics who need acute immediate help because they have been drinking to the point of unconsciousness.

“The displacement effects are there”

Acute cases are currently being brought to the hospital and given medical care there. One of the goals of future care is to also offer social work care.

How do you feel about the alcohol ban at the Praterstern?

  • A good idea!
  • Ban is not very effective

Regarding herself, the green social spokeswoman Birgit Hebein sees additional need for action – because: “The displacement effects are there.” In the APA conversation, she once again asked for medical care on the spot. In addition, one must think about lifting the alcohol ban in homeless facilities. Because those affected need a place to drink somewhere, so the thought.

With a new generation of smartphones, a heap of used predecessor models is often washed up on online marketplaces and used exchanges. In the case of the

iPhone

looked at what old devices are still worth today.

For the study, the

Marketplace app Shpock

analyzed a sample from the sale of around 100,000 used iPhones over a period of around one and a half months. The results are sometimes surprising: it is true that it confirms that

Apple products

secondhand are unusually stable in value for a smartphone. But it also shows that more than half of all devices (57%) are only sold within the first week.

That’s how much old iPhones are worth

The stability of the value of iPhone is particularly noteworthy downwards. “29% of households bunker at least one fully functional smartphone that is no longer used,” says Shpock spokeswoman Christina Drumbl about the study. “Even for older models like the iPhone 6s, you can still get over € 200 online.”

Model Price in euros iPhone X 829 iPhone 8 Plus 666 iPhone 8 593 iPhone 7 Plus 484 iPhone 7 373 iPhone 6s Plus 286 iPhone 6s 238 iPhone 6 Plus 226 iPhone 6 185

Does a repair pay off?

What absolutely does not pay off is repairing a defective device before selling it. One would think that a higher sales can be achieved with this, but that is fundamentally not true. Especially in the case of display damage, it is evident that the seller tends to pay more for a repair. It is also a misconception that no one would buy defective devices.

“We notice many hobbyists or professional workshops on our platform who are specifically looking for damaged devices in order to refurbish old smartphones with the necessary equipment and know-how,” says Christina Drumbl.

Gasoline and diesel cars will eventually die out. Than are

Electric cars

the environmentally friendly future. Current studies and critics see it differently. According to experts, some facts speak against it,

E-cars

can be described as environmentally friendly without reservation.

How environmentally friendly a means of transport is depends on several factors, says the environmental organization “Greenpeace” on the subject of electric cars on its website. Greenhouse gas, air pollutant and particle emissions as well as the energy consumption in the production, use and recycling of a vehicle would also have to be taken into account. Recent studies have done that and find the following:

1. Surprising carbon footprint

The Environment and Forecasting Institute (UPI Institute) in Heidelberg has a

Study “Ecological Consequences of Electric Cars”

(2nd edition 2017) and comes to the conclusion that the real CO2 emissions of an electric car are by no means zero.

Real thinks: Even if the electric car does not produce any CO2 emissions in operation, CO2 emissions still occur in production and through electricity consumption, which are factored in. And in the study, the authors criticize the fact that electric cars compensate for excess CO2 limit values. Based on the assumed zero emissions, manufacturers are therefore able to receive a kind of CO2 credit for the car fleet when they sell an electric car. With this one credit, the limit values ​​of several SUV vehicles can be compensated for, according to the report. “Under the current framework conditions, electromobility means that CO2 emissions rise,” said study author Dieter Teufel in the “3sat” program “Nano”.

The Austrian Federal Environment Agency paints a less drastic picture in its study on electric cars from 2016: Overall, the experts conclude that electric cars cause fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional gasoline and diesel vehicles. However, in terms of indirect greenhouse gas emissions – that is, production-related emissions – electric cars are also on par with petrol and diesel vehicles in this report. It was also emphasized that “without a comprehensive consideration of the entire life cycle of a vehicle, there is no complete representation of the environmental effects of transport systems.”

2. The weak point of lithium-ion batteries

That leads to point 2: The

Lithium-ion battery

. The storage of the amount of electricity still represents a weak point in the e-automotive industry. Heavy (because large) batteries, long charging times and a short range continue to cause problems for the industry. Tesla is the front runner in terms of range. The

Tesla

Model S P100D drives over 500 kilometers with a capacity of 100 kilowatt hours (kWh). A new

Swedish study

has found that the production of lithium-ion batteries is associated with a high level of environmental pollution in the form of emissions: for example, around 150 to 200 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalents are generated per kWh of storage capacity of the car batteries. For the Tesla Model S with 100 kWh of capacity, that’s the equivalent of 17.5 tons of CO2. According to the study, a fossil fuel-powered car can be driven for eight years before it has as much environmental impact as the production of a lithium-ion battery for the Tesla Model S.

Manufacturing larger batteries is therefore not a long-term solution: First, a larger battery means more energy is required to manufacture the battery. And secondly, it not only increases the capacity, but also the weight of the car, which in turn leads to greater power consumption. It would make sense – in terms of the environment – to have smaller batteries that can store as much energy as possible. Some of these already exist, but they are correspondingly expensive and therefore uninteresting for the electric car industry.

3. Questionable power sources

It is also crucial which energy source is supplied to the electric car. Energy from coal-fired power plants or nuclear power significantly reduces the ecological advantage of an electric car, as experts criticize. If everyone were to switch to electric cars, from today’s perspective the electricity generated from renewable energies is by far not sufficient to cover the electricity needs of all electric cars.

In the UPI study, the experts therefore call for the share of renewable energy sources in total electricity generation to be increased first and for the decline in fossil fuels in electricity generation to be accelerated in order to improve the ecological balance of electric drives. Some countries like Norway or Switzerland would have pushed the expansion far enough.

4. Disposal problem

In addition to the manufacture of the battery, the extraction of raw materials and recycling also play an important role from an ecological perspective. The latter raises the question: Is it possible to dispose of batteries for electric cars in an environmentally friendly way? The answer is partly positive.

Before the batteries from electric cars even have to be recycled, they are given a so-called “second life”. Because only because the battery has become too weak for the car, the battery can still be used, for example as an intermediate storage for renewable energies. Only when the battery has served its purpose there is it recycled. According to Greenpeace, recycling can currently be done ecologically and safely with at least 75 percent of the materials. Since the alkali metal lithium makes up only a small proportion of the weight of the battery, recycling is concentrated on the raw materials nickel, copper and cobalt.

The recycling process for pure lithium is technically possible, but expensive and is currently not used on an industrial scale. A real recycling industry and thus the necessary capacities for a massive reprocessing of the raw materials for such batteries is still lacking.

The bottom line is: In the long term, electric cars can definitely play a role in making car traffic more environmentally friendly. However, the current problems or weak points must be resolved by then. In particular, light electric cars with smaller batteries that are used in urban areas have ecological potential from today’s perspective.
