Comments: The Use Of The English Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 29, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Writing comments is not easy, or so it appears when I go through some of the wonderful outpourings various websites and news media allow to infest their pages. We all know that spammers don’t write comments themselves, they have a special template which constructs some form of something which might pass as a real comment, […]

Start By Learning To Spell

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 24, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Apparently there is an old saying: if you can’t beat them, join them. Sorry, but I can’t do that in this case, I just can’t. It is something which has annoyed me for such a long time that I simply overlook it now – well, mostly – automatically assume a meaning for what has been […]

iPhone 6: You’re Kidding Me, Right?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 21, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Over the last few days I’ve been reading the constant, unremitting complaints of all those people who, only a few days earlier, were eagerly awaiting the chance to download iOS8 for the smartphones. Complaints about applications which no longer work, about photographs which disappear, about the sheer size of the update, which would have smashed […]

Using Words With Double Meanings

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 19, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Language, that wonderful means of communicating which everyone understands, but which can so easily be misinterpreted or taken out of context. You just need to look at the number of politicians who, having had their ill-thought words quoted in the press come straight back and claim they have been taken out of context, that their […]

The Justification For Learning Words

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 18, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

We cannot get around using them in one way or another: words. They make up our language, our thoughts, the manner in which we express ourselves. They might not launch a thousand ships, but we need words to describe the face which did and what those ships went on to do in their travels, in […]

Advantages Of Using Social Media

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 15, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Coming to the end of one experiment, as I mentioned recently, does not mean coming to the end or not taking advantage of other social media networks. We all know how important the Internet has become for many, especially the younger generation, and that most seem to have an Internet ready smart phone in their […]

Women Programmers in Their Underwear And….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 31, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Women are fighting back! Well, admit it, there is nothing unusual about such a statement, women have been fighting back against one form of inequality or another, against sexism, against being allocated and forced into a role with precious little by way of recognition or thanks for centuries. Now, it would appear, the latest method […]

What Your Fashion Statement Says About You

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 30, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

We all make some sort of statement about ourselves when we go out, through our clothing, our make-up, our general attitude and appearance. It’s something we cannot stop, cannot avoid, simply because people read our character according to what they see, what they imagine we are showing of ourselves. There are, though, some statements which […]

Is ALS A Fraud?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 29, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

If you haven’t caught it on the news, on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google or anywhere else and don’t know what the Ice bucket challenge is, then I will be very surprised. Depending on who happens to be pouring water – or bundles of cash – over their heads, the promotion to raise cash and donations […]

Getting To Grips With New Words

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 28, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Has the Internet brought a whole new form of language with it? Is it possible that the evolution of our mother tongue, whichever one it may be, is being pushed on through the manner in which younger people express themselves online, through status updates, through the need to abbreviate what they have to say on […]
