Commercial Journalism: Which Lives Matter Most?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 1, 2015 in News & Opinion |

For many in the United States it is almost impossible to accept that the hashtag – a method of highlighting a topic to group all Tweets together and make searches easier – Cecil The Lion (#CecilTheLion) has overtaken the hashtag Black Lives Matter (#BlackLivesMatter). Not for all, though: some see it as a vindication of […]

Gun Control: It’s Never The Right Time

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 28, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There’s a good reason why no one wants to talk about gun control: it would be inconsiderate to the families of those people who have just been killed in yet another rampage on American soil. Rather, let’s make the suggestion that even more people should be armed, such as kindergarten teachers, Army recruiters, theater popcorn […]

Texas: Fighting A Losing Battle

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 29, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There is a saying that the battle may be lost (or won) but the war is not over, and it is exactly this fact of life which many people in the United States should take to heart. The Supreme Court may have the final word on same-sex marriage as far as the law goes, but […]

The Darkest Days Of Humanity

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 27, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is hard to believe that some count the last hours as being the darkest ever. I do not mean in a natural light sense – sunlight, daylight saving time and all that – but in the sense of a set back for the human race, a turnaround in the wrong direction, a return to […]

Trade: Stating The Obvious

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 13, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Before I even start: I am not a political person, much of what happens in politics, regardless of which country you choose in the democratic world, will happen no matter which political party happens to be in power. If it make sense for the country, or their ideal of a country, they will try to […]

Education For The Road

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 12, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There is a petition laid out in several shops and petrol stations around town following a fatal accident on the roadway near here. A young motorcycle rider was killed when his bike crashed into a car at a crossing near the edge of town about a fortnight ago, and a few local people are now […]

May Day Occupations

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 2, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I’m told that it used to be the French, back in the day, then the English took over and now, it seems, the Germans have taken the lead. Hardly a day seems to go by without one union or another calling for their members to go out on strike because the ‘management’, who they have […]

Architects Need Not Apply

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 30, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There are very good reasons why I decided to take the course – both directional and educational – that I have, ones which I hardly need explain to those who regularly read this blog. I could have chosen many fields, ones where my disability would have made no difference, and many have been suggested. One […]

Apes And Worker’s Rights

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 22, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It was a close-cut thing, but for a few hours the US justice system really showed what it is capable of. It’s not enough that they fight over whether a woman can wear red shoes on a Sunday, or a man can tether his giraffe to a street lamp, now we have human rights – […]

The Annual Speed Test

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 18, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The third Germany-wide ‘blitz marathon’ provided an extremely high number of motorists with a photograph that they will prize for a long time to come, even though none of them wished for such an image. Across the entire country an army of police officers – over ten thousand according to some reports – manned the […]
