When hearing the word Bundesliga most people think of Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund. In the shadow of these two giants no other club has developed into an international top team, able to secure the services of superstars like Luiz Gustavo, Kevin de Bruyne and Niklas Bendtner. It is no surprise then that it was Vfl Wolfsburg who last managed the feat of breaking Bayern's and Dortmund's dominance by winning the league in 2009. After finishing fifth in last season's Bundesliga, Wolfsburg is now competing in the Europa League. And now they face Everton FC.
Arianna Huffington, founder and chief-executive editor of the Internet-newspaper “The Huffington Post”, was honored with the Aenne Burda Award during the last day (January 24) of the international digital conference DLD in Munich. Dr. Maria Furtwängler-Burda consigned the trophy, a statue of Pallas Athene. The award honors successful and creative female entrepreneurs with visionary ideas from the digital world, this year for the seventh time already. Maria Furtwängler pleaded in her laudatory speech for female empowerment as start-up founders. Arianna Huffington could serve as a role model here: “Arianna Huffington experienced backstrokes and was never deterred by them – her fearlessness is a stimulus for women, to get active themselves.”

Eine Erinnerungsperformance zur Reichspogromnacht initiierte der Münchner Künstler Wolfram Kastner. Zwei Männer in SA-Uniform (Heinz Huber, Georg Schramm) führten fünf Personen (Wolfram Kastner, Edgar Liegl, Brigitta Oberhauser, Hiltraud Pusch-Zilker, Peter Thalheim) mit dem Davidstern durch Münchens Innenstadt. Die Polizei sah in der Aktion eine unangemeldete Demonstration und nahm Kastner und seine sechs Kollegen fest. Vom Hinweis der Veranstalter, daß es sich um eine nicht genehmigungspflichtige Kunstaktion handele, ließen sich die Ordnungshüter nicht beeindrucken.
