natury: We've implemented a new layout for you! [24 March 2020]

natury's new layout: more spaceThe layout for desktops natury's layout: the menu sticks top rightnow has more space: (W)QHD (2560 pixels) and UHD (3840 pixels) monitors are slowly becoming quite common – natury's previous layout with a maximum width of 940 pixels looked pretty narrow and puny …

Now, natury uses up to 1300 pixels in width – this allows a more generous use of space. Of course, the layout adapts automatically (responsive) on narrower displays up to smartphones.

The most important new feature is, that the menu on the upper right corner remains firmly stuck, even if the rest of the page is scrolled. This way, you always have access to the menu and do not have to search it a long time.

natury's layout: on narrow displays, the menu appears in hamburger styleWhen available natury's layout: when the hamburger menu changes to normal menu, it points out the current menu itemspace on your device's display thins down, the menu changes to hamburger style (top left, blue-white).

By clicking the hamburger button, the menu is displayed and it then shows exactly the current menu item, so that you know, where in the menu you are, and you can switch to neighbouring menu items without guessing, wiping, or scrolling.

Another new feature is, that links to the homepage in other languages and to corresponding articles, i.e. concerning the same topic in other languages, are moved down to 'Direct Links' at the bottom of each page - they are not used so often, that they should be at the top. Also, 'Search' has been moved down. Searching is still possible on every page. If you click on 'Direct Links' in the menu, your view will immediately moved down to the bottom of the current page.

D · Physical exercise despite corona [23 March 2020]

Five days of cloudless high-pressure weather with strong, cold eastern winds – the temperature sensation is just above zero, even the bright March sun cannot change that. But even in times of COVID-19, you have to keep fit and need exercise – jogging or walking once a day or at least a stroll is necessary to strengthen your immune system.

Stroll along a lakeAt a small Footbath in a lakelake, a rest was welcome: Bright sun shining into your face, feet under water, lovely small talk – maintaining a certain distance, of course. You understand other persons even from a distance of 2 m and you do not have to expose yourself and others to the risk of droplet infection – because microscopic droplets are inevitable companions, when breathing out, and even more so, when speaking.

In supermarkets, which we all have to visit from time to time to buy food, keeping away from each other works all of a sudden in an exemplary way, as if each of us had trained this behaviour from an early age.

The people, who went for a walk this afternoon, were calm, cheerful, and health-conscious even in the Corona crisis: Here, too, you kept a certain distance, enjoyed the nice weather, and had relaxed conversations from safe distance.

There we go!

Google: natury on top [18 March  2020]

Google is ranking the natury website in English on top postions.

Search by Google on 12 March 2020 in Germany and on 18 March in USA shows articles of the natury website concerning the terms "nudevent" and "nudevents" on top postions. On 18 March, a search for "nudevents" from Germany shows, that the second entry, which was "Hiking in the buff - Natury" on 12 March, is now "Nude biking - Natury". Good news is, that natury still is on position 1 and 2.

The US ranking order differs slightly from the result in Germany, but is also very good.
