Transport: The Case For Training And Registration

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

If you need a license to fly an airplane, why not also a license to fly a drone? The need for some sort of registration of drones in the United states and, perhaps over the coming years, in Europe, makes some form of sense. It will not stop people from building their own and flying […]

Trump’s Deportation Plans: A Reminder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 26, 2015 in News & Opinion |

To follow the political news in the USA, especially when it comes to the various election campaigns already being waged, and gain a fair and balanced idea of what is happening, you’d need to watch all of the news channels twenty-four hours a day and read both the serious press and, sadly, the gutter-press too.

Dangerous Discussion Points And Questions

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 19, 2015 in News & Opinion |

We live in Politically Correct times, not as bad, perhaps, as they were a few years ago, but still times which cause many people to think before the speak or regret the simplest of things said. It is a time when we should be asking ourselves questions, re-evaluating what we know and do not know, […]

Why Do North Americans Fall For Payment Scams?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 16, 2015 in News & Opinion |

We live in an age when mass communication, the gathering and distribution of news and information, when education – in theory – is at a high point. In the Western world there are few who do not have some form of access to the Internet or, at the very least, a television with cable or […]

Watching Parliament: An Undemocratic Act?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 9, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Some people are dedicated to their jobs, in many more ways than one. How many stories have we heard or read, how many people have we see, complete with laptop or smart phone, on their vacation, working away from the office?

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.

Sexism And The Wandering Eye

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 8, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I don’t have a problem with people looking, we all do it including me. I see a beautiful woman walking down the street, I am going to look at her, I’m going to see what she’s wearing, I’m going to admire her shape. Not in a slack-jaw, drooling, spit running over my chin manner, as […]

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 […]
