Real Joy

Frankfurt’s Paraguayan player Nelson Valdez jubilates after scoring the 4-0 in a German first division soccer match Eintracht Frankfurt vs SC Paderborn 07, Mar. 14, only minutes after making his return following a six-month injury absence. He of course received the yellow card for taking his shirt off in celebration – undressing is not allowed during the match, although highly recomended afterwards.

A Morning at the Power Plant

A coal train arrives at the Westhafen power plant before daybreak in Frankfurt, Feb. 17. The combined heat and power plant (CHP) is fired with coal imported from the U.S and from Russia. Germany’s shift to renewable power sources has brought the share of green electricity up to about 25% – but the rest of the energy mix has become even more heavily concentrated on coal, which now accounts for some 45% of power generation.
