Green Bay Packers to win Super Bowl XLVI

I am not a big fan of American Football, but that is secondary, if a good betting opportunity emerges. Green Bay has already won the Bowl last season making me some decent money, while the new season is well underway and the Packers are 3-0 after three games. Still there are odds of 5.6 on offer with Betfair, what will do for me.

Hamburg - Some homeless had found a shelter underneath a bridge, ...

... when chief officer M. Schreiber - a social democrat- came to the conclusion their sight would disturb tourists and action is needed. So at first rocks were placed, but the stubborn homeless used them as pillows and then a downright ugly fence was erected to keep them away for a mere 18000.- Euros. My hometown was once cool and likable. Not anymore or what is likable about a city, which is meanwhile almost completely  committed to the wealthy and tourists or a Reeperbahn, which is occupied by cohorts of juvenile drinkers and knifers ? Shame on you, Mr. Schreiber.

Well done, Kweku

Kweku A. worked as a trader for the Swiss bank UBS and had billions of play money at his disposal. Not one , who fiddles around with small change he went in big, but lost his winning touch and sent 2 bn dollars down the drain. The USA were one day of the brink of illiquidity and the next day Pres. Obama released a 300 bn dollar program to boost  the economy. In Germany chancellora Merkel and her finance minister W. Schäuble ( both need to be sacked urgently, read more here ) are sending billions of Euros down south to a barrel without bottom. I am watching all this in disbelief and wonder, where those follies are taking us.
