Loan Interest: How Much Are You Paying?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 16, 2016 in News & Opinion |

This is the way it works: you’re short of cash and need a quick loan. You know someone, or there is a payday loan company near you, and you get some ready cash to help you through the day, a few days, the week. Simple as that. Except that the interest many people pay on […]

Playing The Stock Market

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 14, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Two days ago a small thought came to me, after I had seen reports about the troubles Boeing and other companies have had, or could potentially have, when Trump lets his thumbs do the talking through Twitter. In between the realization that these Tweets will probably be his press releases now, whether he wants to […]

Religious Freedom Is Only For Christians

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 1, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There are, in theory, two great bastions of religious freedom, going by what their governments, constitutions or laws claim: the United States of America and the United Kingdom. Both of these countries have experienced religious persecution in the past – indeed, the North American continent was initially colonized by people wishing to get away from […]

Bad News Sells Better

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 18, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Fake news is in the news, but not all fake news makes it to the forefront, not when it comes to highly thought-of and well established concerns who have been in the business of reporting for many years, rather than just having had a Twitter account since last June. This form of fake news, however, […]

The Problem With Banning Fake News

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 15, 2016 in News & Opinion |

After a certain amount of pressure from outside, it looks as if Facebook might consider reacting to the number of fake news stories propagated on its servers, some of which are claimed to have influenced the recent presidential election in the United States. Google has also indicated that such an action might follow from their […]

Vine: A Strange Glimmer Of Hope?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 28, 2016 in Internet |

It didn’t take long. I wrote and posted by last on the death of Vine with the idea that another company could split the video channel from Twitter and make it a separate, successful entity, and less than twenty minutes later a possibility looms. Not, perhaps, that which many would hope for, but a possibility; […]

Vine: Another One Bites The Dust

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 28, 2016 in Internet |

Perhaps it was just too good to last: Vine, the short video / film platform which changed the lives of many people throughout the world is condemned to the archives. Twitter, faced with problems, decided recently to ditch one of its popular attractions, and give up the battle against YouTube and other video hosting services, […]

The Influence Of The Internet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 16, 2016 in Internet |

This may well become an Internet legend, or it could also be just a story someone made up along the way but it goes something like this: The German supermarket chain Lidl decided upon a new advertising campaign comparing prices of products that they sell, between their own brands and those of market leaders. They […]

The Saddest Side Of American Politics

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 15, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

As many will possibly have noticed, the bulk of the news stories coming out of the election campaigns in the United States are about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise, as they are the forerunners in the charge towards the White House. Now and then you’ll see something about […]

Presidential Campaign: Lest We Forget

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 14, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There are parody accounts, real accounts and stared accounts on Twitter, and sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference one from another. Quite a few people have been caught out recently by parody accounts claiming to be Donald Trump – although I do not understand why anyone would wish to parody a man who […]
