Fortuna Duesseldorf

Fortuna Düsseldorf is a German football club in Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia. Founded in 1895, Fortuna entered the league in 1913 and was a fixture in the top flight from the early 1920s up to the creation of the Bundesliga in 1963. 2019–20 is their 25th season in the Bundesliga and the second in a row since getting promoted from the 2. Bundesliga in the 2017–18 season.

Fortuna’s fiercest rivalry is with 1. FC Köln, which stems from the geographic proximity of Düsseldorf and Cologne as well as the historic rivalry between the two cities. However, in recent seasons the clubs have rarely played in the same division making head-to-head encounters increasingly rare. The 2013–14 season marked the last time the two clubs met in competitive matches when both played in the Second Division. For the 2018–19 season, Fortuna was promoted to the 1. Bundesliga precisely as 1. FC Köln was demoted from the Bundesliga to the Second Division, again avoiding the “Rheinland Derby”.

Fortuna’s other historic rivals are Rot-Weiss Essen, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, and Wuppertaler SV. During the 1970s, all four clubs played in the Bundesliga. Both Essen and Wuppertal have since dropped to lower leagues. Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, has emerged as a powerful force in the Bundesliga. Leverkusen’s financial support from the Bayer chemical conglomerate has led to many Düsseldorf fans criticizing the club as “plastic” and inauthentic, without any real tradition. During the seasons when they both played in the Second Division, Fortuna’s matches against MSV Duisburg and Borussia Mönchengladbach were hotly contested and were often referred to as “Lower Rhein Derbys”. Fortuna Düsseldorf and Rot-Weiss Essen have played one another 59 times and many fans still regard this as a heated rivalry, but direct matches have been rare in recent years. Fortuna also has inter-city rivalries with Düsseldorf SC99 and TuRU Düsseldorf, yet these have also lost their intensity. During the post-war years, no other club within the Düsseldorf city limits has ever played in a higher division than Fortuna.

New Covid-19 infections in Iran at their highest


The number of new infections in Iran has risen to the highest level since the pandemic began. The Tehran Ministry of Health reported 3,574 new cases within 24 hours. The number of infections had temporarily decreased, but recently rose again steadily and was now above the record level at the end of March with 3186 new cases within one day.

With 59 deaths between Wednesday and Thursday, the number of deaths, however, was reported to be relatively low. The increase in new infections could be due to the fact that more people have been tested, Ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpur said on state television and over a million tests have been carried out so far.

Nevertheless, the Iranian health authorities were concerned about the increasing numbers.

On Thursday, there was a loop on television that warned of compliance with the distance, travel and hygiene rules.

Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva1000x600

The left-wing politician Lula accused Bolsonaro of irresponsibility in dealing with the corona pandemic. Brazil is the worst hit by the pandemic after the United States and officially, more than 30,000 people have died as a result of Covid-19..

The conservative President of Parliament Rodrigo Maia did not allow any of the applications for impeachment to be discussed and was  criticized. Bolsonaro had publicly referred to the pandemic as a “little flu”. He opposes the ban on assembly and quarantine measures imposed by state governors. At the same time, the Supreme Court has launched investigations into Bolsonaro for possible interference with the judiciary system.

The Brazilian constitution sets high hurdles for impeachment and the Brazilian House of Representatives and the Senate must vote in the majority to initiate impeachment proceedings againt Bolsonaro.

Covid-19 infection and Cannabis

The novel pathogen Covid-19 can become a danger to all people due to its high infectivity. At the same time, it is worrying that no standardized treatment options are known so far, with which disease courses can be alleviated and shortened, healing processes can be supported or the development of difficult courses can be slowed down. Whether symptoms appear after infection and how violently they develop depends primarily on the functioning of your own immune system.

Covid-19 infection and cannabis

There is serious evidence that vaporized tobacco-free cannabis could help manage a Covid-19 infection.

In the search for suitable remedies, some patients included the use of cannabis on their own initiative. After all, the already known medical effects of cannabis (including anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-convulsion, enlargement of the bronchi, soothing) underline that the use of cannabis, especially the vaporising inhalation of cannabis flowers, could be a way to alleviate symptoms or to contribute to the healing of the disease. This survey aims to gather the experiences of Covid 19 patients who have used cannabis more or less specifically to cope with their own health situation.

Covid-19 patients are all people who have received a positive test result and have developed no or more or less severe symptoms of the disease. Anyone belonging to this group of people is asked to complete this questionnaire to the best of their knowledge and to make their personal experiences accessible to LimeSurvey.

Also particularly interesting are data that provide information about the further course of an infection / disease over a longer period of time. That is why LimeSurvey plans to collect and evaluate this experience again in four weeks with a questionnaire. It would therefore be helpful if patients provided LimeSurvey with this information via the second questionnaire that is then also available on the website.

The survey is carried out by: Prof. Dr. Gundula Barsch , Merseburg University of Applied Sciences, Eberhard-Leibnitz-Strasse 2, Department of Social Affairs, Media and Culture, 06217 Merseburg and Christoph Roßner, interdisciplinary cannabis expert, Ulmer Str. 11, 87700 Memmingen.

Drug use after lockdown

Drugs educators and drug testers from The Loop in Manchester (Great Britain) have started a survey on drug use and the changes in the drug black market (availability, prices, qualities).

A number of northern European drug counseling centers, including The Loop, have developed a very short, anonymous survey to collect data on how drug and alcohol use has changed during public lockdown. The link here leads to the English language version. This survey aims to collect comparable data across Europe to inform drug and harm reduction services and support drug and alcohol users in these challenging times.

3 versions of this survey will be released, which will be released in three phases of the Covid 19 pandemic. The phase 1 survey will initially take place during the period of the strongest lockdown. In phase 2, the restrictions will be relaxed across Europe in a few months, and in phase 3 the consequences in late summer or early autumn will be recorded. At the end of each phase of the survey, The Loop will immediately provide European drug advice centers with a summary of the results of each survey.

The short, anonymous survey, which mainly has to be ticked, and which takes around 10 minutes to complete, is being carried out as part of a trans-European COVID-19 and drug use survey.
