Opening of the MEININGER Hotel Dresden Center at Wiener Platz in Germany


MEININGER Hotels;

Today, the MEININGER hotel group is celebrating its third new opening this year. The MEININGER Hotel Dresden Center at Wiener Platz is the second hotel in Saxony and the 14th in Germany.

The MEININGER Hotel Dresden Zentrum offers 173 rooms with 719 beds, making it one of the hotels with the most beds in the city. “We are looking forward to the new, very central hotel in Dresden”, comments Thomas Hagemann, COO of MEININGER Hotels. “Between the central station and the central bus station which will eventually be opened, the hotel is located in a part of the city which is becoming increasingly important in terms of infrastructure.

On its four floors, the hotel offers different types of rooms for families, backpackers, groups and business travelers. “For the wide range of guests who typically visit MEININGER Hotels, we have double and multi-bed rooms for up to six people,” says Hagemann. “As in all MEININGER hotels, its facilities include communal kitchens, a bar and a games area with table football as standard.” From a rooftop terrace with sun loungers, hotel guests can enjoy wonderful views of the historic center.

“Ode to Joy”, the poem once composed by Friedrich Schiller in Dresden and later set to music by Ludwig van Beethoven, was the central theme of the hotel’s music-inspired design. In the lobby, the lounge furniture is arranged according to the progression of the notes of Beethoven’s famous composition, while lamps hanging like notes from the ceiling, spotlights and red curtains give the breakfast area a theatrical atmosphere. And the hotel’s interior design adds an unusual feature in its contemporary take on Dresden’s musical history: each room has a glittering disco ball.

In addition to the Hotel MEININGER, the building at Wiener Platz also houses a 3,800 m2 Edeka grocery store on the ground floor, which has already been open since September 2021. The 204 meter long and 40 meter wide building impresses with its outside with its glittering rainbow-colored facade. Special crystals allow the exterior of the building to light up in different colors, depending on the viewer’s perspective. Peter Simmel, owner and investor of the building, is grateful for how the project has gone: “After a very unusual and difficult construction process with COVID-19 and a shortage of building materials, I am grateful that we have achieved our goal with the MEININGER hotel. The location right next to the central station and the future bus station, in combination with our grocery store, could not be better. The unique location, the view, the facilities and the charm general are guaranteed to delight customers. I hope the MEININGER team enjoys the new building and wish them every success.”

Whether it’s the Semperoper, the Zwinger or the Frauenkirche, the city’s famous tourist attractions can be reached on foot in 20 minutes, and a walk to the historic city center can also include the Prager Strasse shopping street. The location of the hotel will become increasingly important once the new central bus station is operational in 2025.

With the new opening in Dresden and 13 other locations in Germany, the hotel group currently oversees 7,400 beds in Germany. “The MEININGER Hotel Dresden Center is already the seventh new opening since the start of the pandemic and is once again the result of a major team effort. It is a sign of our resilience as a relatively new hotel brand. “, says Hagemann. The expansion of MEININGER’s hybrid hotel concept into new and existing markets will continue for the foreseeable future. For the next 12 months, additional hotel openings are planned in Venice and Cologne.

CHICAGO: Native Americans here have pitched with Semperoper Dresden (Germany) to drop its upcoming production of “La Bayadère”; scheduled from February 15 to March 05, 2023 because it would trivialize Eastern and other religious traditions.

It is claimed that the Semperoper Dresden, “one of the finest opera houses in the world”, should not promote the appropriation of the traditions, elements and concepts of “others”; and ridicule entire communities

Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, observed that this deeply problematic ballet was a blatant disparagement of a wealthy civilization and showed 19th-century Orientalist attitudes. He also urged Semperoper Dresden to apologize for such an inappropriate selection.

It was highly irresponsible for Semperoper Dresden to choose such a ballet which had been blamed for patronizing a flawed mishmash of Orientalist stereotypes, dehumanizing cultural representation and misrepresentation, offensive and demeaning elements, unnecessary appropriation of cultural motifs , essentialism, superficial exoticism, caricature, etc. Semperoper Dresden could do better than this to serve its various stakeholders; he added.

Prime Minister of the Free State of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer, is asked to seriously consider this issue of cultural stereotypes by Semperoper Dresden.

Semperoper Dresden’s artistic director Peter Theiler and general manager Wolfgang Rothe are reassessing its systems and procedures and sending its executives for cultural sensitivity training so that such inappropriate things don’t creep in in the future.

Semperoper Dresden has announced the presentation of “La Bayadère” (by Aaron S. Watkin), which he describes as “opulent oriental ballet”, in two acts on March 15, 17, 19, 21, 26 and 05, 2023 tickets go up to 74 €.

Story by News Reporter: Shannon Taylor

Tony Winstead, owner of the property on the court square in Dresden which was previously Majestic House, hired solicitor Langdon Unger to solve the problem of his property being demolished without his permission.

In a letter from Unger to City Archivist Jennifer Branscum, Unger said, “I have been contacted by Tony and Inju Winstead regarding the demolition and cleanup of the aforementioned property. For various reasons, they take the position that they owe the city of Dresden nothing for this. The Winsteads informed me that they had never agreed to this demolition and that in fact they could have the work done for a fraction of what was going to be charged by the city of Dresden. Additionally, they lost a significant amount of personal property due to the demolition.

Washburn said at the August 1 city council meetingst that he had been in contact with Mr. Winstead who had advised him to contact his daughter. Washburn said he contacted his daughter, Tiana, and she asked Washburn to send her the documents he was referring to regarding the purchase of a property Winstead owns behind where his building was that the city wants to acquire. . Washburn said he told Mr Winstead he would recommend to the board that ‘we would forgive him his billing for the demolition of the hotel if he were so inclined to turn that property over to us’.

Washburn informed council that the town had received a letter from Mr. Winstead’s solicitor regarding the demolition of his property. “I would say that’s one way he wouldn’t have to do that with this offer. The city administration is definitely willing to contact him and go back and forth with offers and counter-offers and bring them to council for council consideration.

Washburn said Mr Winstead’s demolition was “approximately $24,000.00”. Washburn said there was also a dispute over what those amounts should be from Dickey Hutcherson, Keely Wilson Nanney and Tony Winstead. The dispute is that the total amount of $129,000.00 should have included the city sidewalks, which would have made the total amount after being divided by the owners a lower amount. “I think they have a good point. My personal opinion is that they should include sidewalks.

It was also noted that there was a cap on the amounts billed to each owner which could not exceed $25,000.00 by the contractor as they did not have a current contract license and would not be able to demolish anything over that amount. The amount for Mr Winstead’s property was said to have exceeded that amount by 25,000 and was lowered to match that.

The council voted unanimously to recalculate the square footage of the entire block that was demolished.

Mayoral candidate Mike Vernon, who is Mr Winstead’s nephew, addressed the council and said: ‘I know I was sitting here calculating property prices and what they should and shouldn’t should not be, but Mr. Winstead does not believe that the amount given to him to pay is due and that he could have obtained it cheaper elsewhere. Vernon went on to say that all matters from now on should go through Unger, but that part of the land that the city was interested in he was willing to sell to the city.

Washburn said they would be happy to speak with his attorney. “We will communicate with Mr. Unger regarding what we could do to settle the acquisition of this land that we wish to acquire.”

The press spoke with Mr. Winstead about the property and whether he would be willing to turn that property over to the city of Dresden in exchange for not paying the demolition costs and Winstead replied that the answer was: “No. I could probably be willing to sell it but I don’t owe them the money for the demolition and I told him that in writing and even got a lawyer to write him a letter – so if I don’t owe this, why would I do it? Am I giving this property in exchange for his debt forgiveness? »

Winstead said he was also unaware that the contractor who demolished the property was not a licensed contractor. “That’s the very reason why he [Washburn] wouldn’t allow local contractors to bid that’s because the contract was over 25,000 and the local contractors I know had a cap of 25,000 or at least that’s what they told me said.

Winstead said a local contractor he had in line to demolish the building said he would do it for $9,000.00. Winstead went on to say that if all the other buildings, which were smaller than his building, other than the town hall, were demolished at $5,000.00 each using local contractors, that would come to $39,000.00. $ – where does the remaining $90,000.00 come from? Winstead said he doesn’t understand the price that has come into play for all the buildings being demolished at the price the city says it was torn down.

Both Winstead and Vernon said that at FEMA meetings, a FEMA representative said they would not release the money for rebuilding City Hall until the city owns the property and that the city would have everything under control.

Winstead said one thing that troubled him was that “it cost $129,000.00 to tear it all down and it [Washburn] didn’t even finish everything he said he would do. It’s supposed to remove all the sole, concrete and asphalt and it’s still there.

Winstead said he wasn’t trying to be uncooperative because he wanted to see the city rebuild, but he said all he saw was poor planning or no planning at all. “It makes me not want to get involved until I see something happen.”

This is a developing story.

Turning the page on Uncle Tom’s Cabin in Dresden, Ontario. On Saturday, the Ontario Heritage Trust announced a new name for the historic site during a special Emancipation Day ceremony.

The site will henceforth be known as the Josiah Henson Museum of African-Canadian History, named after its founder and already the key figure in many of the center’s existing museum teachings and exhibits.

“We try to ensure that the heritage we represent on behalf of the province and on behalf of the people of Ontario is authentic, honest and truthful,” says Beth Hanna, CEO of the Ontario Heritage Trust. “It’s part of a larger discussion about how we tell the stories of Ontario’s past and how we portray heritage.

“Whose stories are we telling, whose heritage are we really protecting? And what is missing in this dialogue? Hanna adds.

Henson founded the Dawn Settlement in 1841 about a decade after escaping slavery in Kentucky, fleeing to Canada via the Underground Railroad.

Her journey inspired the main character of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

“The man who came to be known as Uncle Tom, the real man, Josiah Henson was born in Maryland. He escaped from Kentucky and he lived here, with Josiah Henson’s roommate” , explains the director of the site, Steven Cook.

Henson established 300 acres of land and personally traveled back and forth through the Underground Railroad to free over 100 more.

At its height, the Dawn Settlement is said to have housed 500 black settlers.

“He created a haven for them here in Dresden, a school and a colony that helped them improve, get an education, because he knew education was really the key to their success,” Cook said. .

Henson died and was buried on this land in 1883, but various landowners have preserved Henson’s legacy to this day.

Five generations of the Henson family were present for Saturday’s name change ceremony and Emancipation Day celebration.

“Having their constant presence in the work we do is incredibly meaningful to us,” Hanna said. “And that validates us, supports us, and encourages us in the work that we’re trying to do.”

According to Cook, the future is bright for the newly named museum, not only to keep the focus on the Methodist preacher, but also the pivotal role he played in shaping African-Canadian history in Canada.

“The real story of the 1800s and the life that Josiah Henson led, that’s what we focus on,” Cook says. “We are not changing history. We just say it and keep it in context.

The hobby of numismatics has been practiced since antiquity. This type of collecting was not only to accumulate great wealth, but also to show an appreciation for the intricacies of the art of printmaking. These coin collections were often stored in large wooden cabinets during the post-Renaissance years, and many national collections in Europe are still referred to as “coin cabinets” by modern numismatists.

Founded around 1530, the Munzkabinett, gold Coin Cabinet of Dresden is one of the largest numismatic collections in Europe, as well as one of the oldest museums in Germany. Currently, more than 300,000 objects inhabit the cabinet, from ancient coins to minting equipment and historical documents, only a tenth of which are on permanent display.

The public part of the coin cabinet is housed in the Dresden Castle Museum and consists of coins, banknotes, medals, seals, counterfeits, primitive forms of currency and equipment of strikes from the ancient Greco-Roman world to the modern European Union. These exhibits focus in particular on the monetary history of Saxony and Germany in general.

In addition to research facilities and five-century-old artifacts, the Münzkabinett also has a legal right to any coin hoard discovered in Saxon territory, whose soil is rich in such hidden treasure. Coin hoards are now worth more than their bullion value when melted down, as they offer a good glimpse into the past.

VALENTINE ROMANENKO THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2022, 10:42 PM

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed that today once again proves that Russia should be officially recognized as a terrorist state.

Source : Zelenskyy’s speech at the end of the 141st day of full-scale war with the Russian Federation

Details: The head of state noted that the Russian Federation had insidiously hit Vinnytsia just as a conference on Russian war crimes was being held in The Hague.

Among other things, the Russian occupation forces hit the local medical center.

Direct speech: “No other country in the world poses such a terrorist threat as Russia. No other state in the world allows itself to destroy peaceful cities and ordinary human life every day with cruise missiles and jet artillery.

As a result of a single rocket attack on our town of Vinnytsia, 23 people were killed. Three children under ten. And unfortunately this is not yet the final figure. Debris analysis is in progress. Dozens of people are missing. Among those hospitalized, some are seriously injured.

What if someone hit a medical center in Dallas or Dresden, God forbid… What would it be called? Isn’t that terrorism?”

DRESDEN, TN – Dresden, Tennessee, Mayor Jeff Washburn has filed a civil lawsuit against the six-member city council of aldermen.

The lawsuit comes a month after the board voted 5-1 in favor of a resolution calling for Washburn’s censure.

Washburn says the board made the decision in violation of Tennessee Sun Law and that the censure resolution should be null and void.

The Tennessee Sun Law basically states that any decision on public policy or public business must be made in public and not in secret. It makes almost all government meetings open to the public.

Washburn says the board met to discuss his censorship ahead of a June 6 public board meeting.







CIVIL PROSECUTION

Washburn said he expected a discussion after the presentation of the resolution calling for its censure.

“It was immediately adopted without discussion. This means that they have already discussed it. They had already made up their minds before they got to the meeting,” says Washburn.

Washburn’s lawsuit also details what he calls the violation of his First Amendment rights to post updates about Dresden on his Facebook news page, “The Weakley Times.”

Washburn says the board of aldermen discussed his censorship and other city business privately, including hiring a city administrator to take on the responsibilities of mayor.







PAPERS

“Taking away the administration powers of the mayor and hiring that extra staff member to run the city, like I said, pretty good cost for a small community – about 25 cents a year, tax rate increase” , says Washburn.

In addition to quashing the resolution, the suit says Washburn is seeking a temporary injunction to restrain the council from interfering with her rights.

“It’s the right thing to do, and I’ve been known to advocate for the right thing to do. It protects the powers of the mayor. It protects the integrity of people knowing what’s going on in their municipal government,” Washburn said.







EQUAL JUSTICE

The monthly Dresden board meeting on Monday evening was postponed because only two aldermen were present when the roll was called.

Washburn is representing himself in this lawsuit.

The college of aldermen has not yet hired a lawyer.

Local 6 contacted the board and members declined to comment.
