East Franconian ( German : Ostfränkisch ), usually referred to as Franconian ( Fränkisch ) in German, is a dialect which is spoken in Franconia, the northern part of the federal state of Bavaria and other areas in Germany around Nuremberg , Bamberg , Coburg , Würzburg , Hof , Bayreuth , Meiningen , Bad Mergentheim , and Crailsheim . The major subgroups are Unterostfränkisch (spoken in Lower Franconia and southern Thuringia), Oberostfränkisch (spoken in Upper and Middle Franconia) and Südostfränkisch (spoken in some parts of Middle Franconia and Hohenlohe ).
By the 1980s, steroid use was growing throughout the sports world, and scientists were fighting a constant battle to catch up with ever-more-sophisticated doping techniques. At the Pan American games in 1983, organizers asked West German scientists to set up a lab to test for illegal drug use. It was the first time a large number of positive tests became public. Steroids were becoming pervasive, and all athletes were affected. But while the opportunity to use performance-enhancing drugs was present, there were differences between the East German methods and everybody else’s. Doping in the GDR was different from the doping in the West of the world but it was also different from the doping in other parts of the East. It was German, it was orderly, it was bureaucratic, it was written up.
See our Marzi & Remy items for sale. Otto Keramik: (1964-current) Otto Gerharz was a glaze genius not yet fully appreciated. His volcanic glazes are getting a lot of attention, but many of the non-volcanic glazes have great sutlety and complexity as well as often being more uncommon. Kurt Tschörner may have done some of the shape designs, but I have not seen documentation on that. Operation of the company was taken over by Otto Gerharz Jr., and the company remains in business. In addition to new forms and glazes, they have also released contemporary versions of some older glazes, generally less refined than the originals, and they have been reproducing the Ruscha bull and some other early shapes for several years. The later versions can usually be distinguished by the glaze. E-mail Us
