How Do You Spot A Terrorist?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 19, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The title of this post is a serious question: how do you spot a terrorist? How do you know that one particular person is planning a terrorist attack, is a member of a terrorist organization, or has links to terror? How can you differentiate between a person who has what we might term fanatical views […]

Terrorism: The Years Ahead

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 31, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The players have changed, but their methods remain the same: attack, destroy, confine, maim, rape. It has never been, and never will be, simply a case of attacking with guns and bombs; the fear of attack must also be sown; the constant worry that the streets are no longer safe; the realization that we, as […]

Reading: And Not Enjoying Reading

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 2, 2015 in Articles and Reviews |

Thinking back, I believe this is perhaps only the second or third time that I have given up on a book from an established publisher – as opposed to a self-published or small-press work – and thrown it into the corner. I’m sure that there are plenty of people who really need this sort of […]

A Lack Of Understanding

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 17, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Undoubtedly many tens of thousands of words will be written about the terrorist attacks in Paris. Anger and fear will be expressed, or has already been. Blame will be placed, whether it is due or not. People will be attacked because of their appearance, their religion, their home country. I can easily imagine that the […]

The State Of Education

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 17, 2015 in News & Opinion |

When I first read the breaking story about Ahmed Mohamed in Irving, I put my head in my hands, covering my eyes, and thanked providence that I didn’t and don’t have to face such blatant stupidity in my life. These are the people who are meant to teach us about life and prepare us for […]

Looks Like I’m Rich… Again

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 3, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

The only reason I bother going into the spam folder on my mail account is to delete what’s in there. Well, almost. Sometimes a mail will be directed to spam when it is real and should have come to my Inbox although, to be honest, that is a rarity. So I go in there, delete […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 29, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

You must be living on the dark side of the moon if you haven’t heard, in one way or another, of the accusations leveled against the comedian, the Dad in a Cardigan, Bill Cosby. Just as so many people, over so many years, in all areas of society – but especially in those of law […]

Guilty As Written: The Missing Word

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 20, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Sometimes you have to get the news out there as quickly as possible, especially in times when every single item could be picked up by someone else and a Scoop – or whatever they are called these days – gets pulled by someone else. Once upon a time the news came out in print, and […]
