Wenn Thilo Sarrazin zusammen mit Chefökonomen, Politikern und dem Präsidenten des europäischen Steuerzahlerbunds an einem Podiumstisch Platz nimmt, dann kann das nur der Auftakt zum bayerischen Abend sein, bei dem neben der Vergnüglichkeit die Themen Politik und Finanzen im Vordergrund stehen.
Viele Urlaubshungrige vergessen immer wieder, dass es neben der beliebtesten Feriendestination der Deutschen, der Insel Mallorca, noch zwei weitere Inseln der Balearen gibt, die es durchaus wert sind, diese jährlich zu besuchen. Der Vorteil hierbei ist, dass es sich bei Mallorca, Ibiza und Menorca zwar um ein und dieselbe Inselgruppe handelt, die einzelnen Orte jedoch so unterschiedlich, einzigartig und individuell sind, dass jegliche Bedürfnisse der verschiedenen Urlauber sämtlicher Altersgruppen berücksichtigt werden können.
Every day we´re confronted with a mere flood of news, trends and fashions and sometimes it can be hard to even keep up with the essentially important bits. We notice the frequently changing fashion in terms of fashion (wikipedia.org) as we walk through the streets of the city but how about the news in interior design and furnishing (decorative art by wikipedia.org).

George W. Bush, 43rd president of the USA, Connecticut-born, famous oilman, governor of Texas between 1994 and 1998, son of former president, started his reelection campaign similarly Bill Clinton did in 1996. He has never officially announced he is running again but he obviously did. “It looks we have a winner in the Republican primary”, he pointed out to laughter. “The other party’s nomination is still playing out.
