Findet in Deutschland tatsächlich eine "stille Enteignung" der Leistungsträger statt, wie das Handelsblatt heute in seiner Titelgeschichte schreibt?

Ich habe diese These einem kleinen Faktencheck unterzogen....

Warum ich Googlemail nicht mehr benutze, nur noch über einen VPN-Anbieter aus Malaysia im Internet surfe und mich in die Email-Verschlüsselung eingearbeitet habe - meine persönliche Zwischenbilanz einen Monat nach den Enthüllungen über die digitale Totalüberwachung.

Want to come to grips with Angela Merkel and German politics? Read this really good piece by Noah Barkin, Reuters' Berlin bureau chief.

Really good indeed. There's quite a lot of new insight to be found in this article.

Can I suggest a wisdom of the crowd - action of cyclists? Let's compile a list of all cars jumping the lights. Here are some examples I realized by randomly choosing some episodes:

45:58 min - lorry 
47:06 black van ("dark yellow", maybe juslegal) 
47:07 silver Ford focus
48:41 car enters ASL
53:15 white Mercedes C class

13:29 moped cuts through cyclists and ASL to get to front on a red
15:43 blue van in ASl
18:06 motorbike enters ASL
19:08 blue car RLJ
19:45 moped cuts into ASL
20:31 white van ASL
21:44 car ALJ
22:06 moped enters ASL
24:16 bus enters ASL, well after lights turned red

25:00 general craziness as next bus and cycle try and move off together
and bus tries to pull in to bus stop immediately after junction.  
26:22 white car RLJ
28:31 ASL infringement

That takes us up to the 30 minute mark.

My latest Reuters Breakingviews piece, now free to read

Euro doomsters beware: rebalancing at work

The German trade surplus vis-à-vis the euro zone has all but vanished in 2013, highlighting the easing of the currency area’s internal imbalances. The fundamental causes of the crisis are in full-scale retreat. The euro zone is more flexible than sceptics want to believe.

After the Prism revelations, I've decided to ditch Googlemail. I'm now a customer of Swissmail, which charged 77 Euros per year for an email account that is ad free and protected by Swiss data protection law. The webmail user interface is a bit shitty but IMAP and iOS Sync works fine.

Won't use G+ much either.

Announce to the world that your moving to Swissmail for privacy reasons. Makes perfect sense.
