in Altentreptow (Mecklenburg Lake District) have begun the last preparations for raising a around 400 tonnes of heavy findlans. The giant stone should be a visitor magnet.
How mayor Volker Bartl (party parts) said on Tuesday, a big crane raised several heavy and ten meters long steel beams about the "big stone" that they can be mounted to a stable construction. The eight meter long giant findling should then be kept at about 2.5 meters on the 6th and 7th of May. The hammer granite is considered the greatest findling on the North German mainland, had come to Altentreptow in the last ice age and so far only looked out of the earth.
Eli Broad, billionaire entrepreneur who reshaped LA, dies
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eli Broad, the billionaire philanthropist, contemporary art collector and entrepreneur who co-founded homebuilding pioneer Kaufman and Broad Inc. and launched financial services giant SunAmerica Inc., died Friday in Los Angeles. He was 87. Suzi Emmerling, a spokeswoman for the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, confirmed his death to The Associated Press. Emmerling said Broad died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after a long illness. No services have been announced. The New York Times first reported his death.
«The main burden will carry special hydraulic stamps that otherwise be used in bridge lifts," explained the mayor. These hydraulic presses stand on extra preceded concrete foundations. On the steel construction hanging tear-resistant straps, which have already been threaded under the Giantstein. The hydraulic presses are supposed to push up the construction together with Findling pieces, with gravel and concrete pressed under the "big stone". "The entire construction is growing high," Bartl said.
The "Great Stone" is about as big as a house: eight meters long, six meters wide and five meters high. Altentrepow operates the effort to make the "Grand Stone" to the visitor magnet in the park at the Klosterberg. The entire terrain should be redesigned for around 1.3 million euros, including a new bathing area nearby. The founding clip adopted by the city representatives costs around 244 000 euros alone. The taxpayer federation had criticized the lift as a "waste of taxpayers" and the city representatives called again on Tuesday to stop the action.
