St. Bartholomaus rothenkirchen: why miracles cannot be explained

The verdict of our tester:

If the service was compared to a meal, the faithful were served a dish that contained all the ingredients – but lacked the final root. It was pleasant that potzl held a sermon that did not want to instruct, but rather to encourage a greater sense of community and coherence. In the end, however, it remained too theological and too unspecific to be remembered in the long term, even after the mass had ended. This was more successful with a statement that the pastor made right at the beginning of the service. Man is on earth because he has the mission to do good.

A visit is the st. Bartholomew's church worthy of all the traps. Also outside the service times. The golden altar in the right wing of the church is particularly impressive.

Music from the net: spotify launches in germany

"We think this is a perfect spot for spotify."At spotify you can choose from a selection of over 16 million tracks. The music is then transferred directly on the internet without the data being stored as in the case of downloading. The technical term for this is streaming. Spotify says it has more than ten million active users, including three million with a paid subscription.

The swedes are already active in twelve other countries. Unresolved licensing issues have delayed the launch of spotify in germany so far. "There were significant hurdles to entering the german market," said ek. "But now we are in a good position."Spotify is already the second-largest source of revenue for record companies in the digital music business in europe. Since its launch in october 2008, spotify has paid around 200 million euros in royalties to the music industry. This benefits record companies as well as composers and artists.

However, the collecting society gema said on monday that there was no contract with spotify at the moment. "We are in the midst of intensive talks, but they have not yet been concluded," a spokesperson.
