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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Man In The Shadows

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 10, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Not many people get to celebrate it, and certainly not many people have their birthday mentioned in the news media around the world. Prince Philip, Prince Consort, the Duke of Edinburgh (and so on) is ninety-four years old. The only reason that I mention this, since I have nothing to do with the British royal […]

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 […]

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 – […]

Is Yahoo Killing Flickr?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 26, 2015 in Internet |

I go visit Flickr every day, not just to see whether other people have shown any interest in my photographers, more to see what other photographers have posted. There are many quite exceptional photographers who use the Yahoo service, and have been using it for many years. Here I can gain inspiration as much as […]
