Advertisement for Grasser incomprehensible The presentation of the facts announced by the SPÖ against Grasser in connection with the Eurofighter procurement is incomprehensible to the ex-finance minister.

Ad not understandable for Grasser

The presentation of the facts announced by the SPÖ against Grasser in connection with the Eurofighter procurement is incomprehensible to the ex-finance minister. His lawyer Manfred Ainedter told the APA that no question remained unanswered in the U Committee today.

“That is an expression of absolute helplessness and obviously motivated by party politics,” Ainedter continued. There had already been an “unsuccessful” criminal complaint from Peter Pilz, he now assessed the SPÖ’s approach as “very questionable”.

The infrastructure in Austria’s cities is not to be despised. No question! Nevertheless, more and more Austrians are drawn to the countryside. Preferably in the countryside – but of course with a subway connection. A survey shows how Mr and Mrs Austrians would like to live.

45 percent of Austrians would prefer to live in the country. 36 percent would prefer a state capital or Vienna, 19 percent a district capital. This is the result of a survey of 3,165 Austrians between mid-December and mid-January by Wohnnet and s Real, which was presented to journalists in Vienna on Tuesday. But the reality is different.

“Despite the rural exodus, the majority of Austrians would prefer to live in the country. Preferably in the countryside with a subway connection – the infrastructure separates the desire from reality,” explained Michael Pisecky, Managing Director of s Real Immobilien. 57 percent of those surveyed want short commutes from home.

According to the survey, only 12 percent never want to move to the country under any circumstances.

They see themselves as modern and open, but when it comes to living, Mr and Mrs Austrians still like to close the door behind them: Merging or merging room concepts may interest the average citizen for a weekend, while most people refuse to do so in their own four walls.

For six out of ten interviewees, doors stand for retreat and privacy. The more people live in the household, the more important these functions become, says a representative survey on future living: The market and opinion researcher Marketagent.com carried out 1,017 net interviews on behalf of the door manufacturer Dana and discovered one or two contradictions – Self-perception and facts differ when it comes to implementing new living ideas. 43 percent of those surveyed live in owner-occupied houses, 38 percent in rental apartments. On average, everyone has seven rooms or 100 square meters.

Bathtub in the bedroom? No thanks!

In a designer hotel, the bathtub in the middle of the room doesn’t bother much; here the innovative idea has a certain appeal for many. At home, however, the tendency for sleeping and hygiene areas to converge does not come across in this country. 43 percent of the respondents would (more likely) describe themselves as an “open type of living”, around two thirds clearly reject such ideas. Lots of light and a flexible room layout are interesting in the living and dining area, but the so-called functional rooms such as toilets, bedrooms or children’s rooms are often closed.

“Renaissance of Cocooning”

Only 1.8 percent can imagine a house without any internal doors. Many overlook functions such as soundproofing or thermal insulation, most of the time it is about peace, quiet and privacy. Marketagent managing director Thomas Schwabl interprets this as an indication of a “renaissance of cocooning”.

Privacy in the quiet place is particularly important

The Austrian values ​​his privacy: 91.9 percent insist on doing their business behind closed doors. An average of 85.3 percent insist on a lockable bathroom, with 89 women and only 81.7 percent men. More than half lock the door while sleeping, almost four even lock it. Only every twentieth person stated that they did not open the door for any activity.

Incidentally, there is less and less cordoned off within the home, said Georg Himmelstoss, Managing Director of Dana Doors. Locks are hardly ever used on many new interior door models.

On the 71st day in

Grasser trial

Today, Thursday, the house was full in the large jury room of the Vienna Criminal Court.

However, this was not due to the explosive nature of the subject, rather judge Marion Hohenecker carried out protocol corrections – i.e. the previous court minutes were checked for accuracy by the judges’ senate, prosecutors and defendants.

Often only typing or comma errors were corrected. Sometimes the audio recording of the hearing at that time was listened to for clarification. The defendants at the main hearing in the Buwog case were again present – including those who are not charged in the ongoing Telekom-Valora proceedings.

This is where things get a bit complicated: The Telecom process is embedded in the Grasser-Buwog process, as long as the Telecom cause is dealt with, the Buwog Cause is interrupted, i.e. Ex-Finance Minister Karl-Heinz Grasser and numerous other defendants of the Buwog case do not have to appear in court. In order to meet deadlines, however, this protocol correction day for the Buwog case was inserted today, in which (almost) all of the accused had to appear in court again.

Real estate agent Ernst Karl Plech and financial advisor Norbert Wicki were not present today. Plech is ill and has not had to sit in the dock for months. The sick lay judge, because of which yesterday’s trial day was canceled, was here again today: six lay judges – two main lay judges and four substitute lay judges – have been sitting in the courtroom every minute since the first day of the trial.

Judge: “We’ll see each other next year”

After today’s day of the trial, which lasted less than two hours, the process goes into the Christmas break. The next negotiation date is January 29, 2019. This appointment is also dedicated to the correction of the minutes. Then it should continue with the Telekom-Valora case, in which the payments of the part-state Telekom Austria to politicians and their environment are dealt with through the lobbyist Peter Hochegger. The Hochegger survey has yet to be completed.

Then the judge wants to deal with the fact that was inserted about Walter Meischberger’s villa.

Once this cause has been concluded, the witnesses should then be summoned. The judge announced today at the end of the hearing that there will probably be a decision to open the evidence procedure on February 19. “See you next year.”

Trial observers do not expect a verdict before the end of 2019. The trial has now lasted over a year.

Appeal process

For the defendants, it is not only about imminent imprisonment, but also about substantial claims for damages by Telekom Austria as well as the real estate company CA Immo and the Republic. CA Immo was defeated in the bidding process for Buwog, which, according to the prosecution, was illegal. If the accused are convicted, CA Immo wants to get back up to 200 million euros, according to their legal representatives in the past. If the money from Grasser and co-defendants could not be brought in, CA Immo could hold itself harmless from the state, since Grasser, as finance minister, was an employee of the republic.

In any case, trial observers do not believe that a judgment by the judges’ senate is enough. An appeal process in this huge process is considered certain.

The Italian architect

Luciano Pia

brings the forest into the city and turns a house into an urban tree house in a project “25 Verde”. 150 trees are allowed to spread their branches here and offer so many advantages for the residents.

The project was completed in 2012 – enough time for the plants to grow into stately trees. In the middle of Turin they are now beautifying the cityscape. They were planted in oversized pots and vessels and grow freely in the impressive steel structure, some of which have the shape of tree silhouettes.

But the urban tree house does not only fulfill its purpose visually: its plants improve the air by filtering out a remarkable 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide per hour and reducing road noise. In summer it doesn’t get too hot due to the shade of the leaves, in winter there is plenty of daylight.
