more local news
i raid berlin.de every now and again for unusual things happening in the city. my favorite feature is the police ticker. not only do you get the latest crime news but also essential information like the official presentation of Brummi – The Prevention Bear. Brummi will teach kids things like how to say "no," how to call for help, and the difference between good and bad secrets. There are plans in the works for an anti-violence Brummi bear twin. Maybe that one (Grummi?) will be for adults, with topics like Hartz IV: just count to 10, backwards.
other events: Open Doors at the Berlin Archives, 12 March, 11-17h. Landesarchiv Berlin, Eichborndamm 115 – 121 dig all you want, all day long.
