USA: The President Elect Is Learning

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 11, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It’s not going to be easy, jot for the president-elect, nor for the citizens of the United States of America. It is going to be a trial and error time, a time when everyone must learn, must adapt, compromise. Simply saying that something is going to happen, without knowing the background, without having a concrete […]

USA: Unify, Work, Heal?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 10, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The elections in the United States are over and both sets of figures have been counted, tallied up, and passed to the public. Donald Trump will be the forty-fifth President, and there is nothing that can be done about it. The American form of democracy, where the popular vote is second to an electoral system, […]

Halloween: The Big Let-Down

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 31, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I may well not say it, but I certainly think it every year: Halloween was a let-down. Halloween in Germany, at least outside of the big cities, is boring. I am sure there are plenty of parties and theme nights amidst the bright lights, but here, well, no. In fact, I have hardly seen a […]

Another Hour Well Spent

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 30, 2016 in Personal |

What would you do if you suddenly discovered that you had an extra hour of life? I guess this is a little like asking what you’d do if you discovered you only had one more day to live, but it is a recurring question, much the same as what you’d do with one hour less. […]

Reading The Fine Print

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 26, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s not just the fine print on contracts and agreements which you should check – unless you wish to sell your soul – your very future could be at risk if you don’t. With the advent of the Internet we were faced not just with the good side of society but also – and increasingly […]

How Do You Feel About Cyclists?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 24, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

The local bicyclist association is at it again. They are promoting their sport and leisure activities as much as the safety of bicycle riders without looking at both sides of the coin. In recent weeks they have been promoting a questionnaire put out by the government about how friendly towns and cities are for people […]

Sex, Donald Trump And Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 22, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

The headline, no matter which languages you may understand, is clear: Is Donald Trump a Sex Monster? With the recent revelations surrounding the candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America and his sexual leanings, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the international press has also hit upon the many […]

Pensions: Planning For The Future?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 21, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Back home, and I still refer to the United States as home even having lived here for so long, many people worry about their 401K and the future. In European countries there is little need, since most have automatic pension plans for workers with contributions being taken straight out of their monthly wage packets. In […]

Who Designs These Things?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 11, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I’m trying to figure out why, when you have a really good design, it isn’t used across the board. My thoughts are mainly directed towards those auto manufacturers who have the same layout in several different cars, but change small things such as the odometer. Perhaps it really is a design thing, aesthetics or whatever […]

Update: Well, That Was Fun

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 7, 2016 in Internet |

Remind me never to try to do an update when most of my traffic is due here. Despite all the statistics various services offer, the bulk of my visitors live in the United States and they, for those of you in the know, tend to live in different time zones. My evening tends to be […]
