Copyright: Who Owns That Building Right There?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 2, 2015 in Photography |

Copyright is, at the best of times, a complicated subject fraught with problems for the layperson and pitfalls for both copyright owners and those who wish to use an image, an extract, an item for a specific purpose.

Cruz: This Explains Everything

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 1, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Just in case anyone didn’t catch it, this is what Ted Cruz said to Sean Hannity following the Supreme Court decisions on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and marriage equality: Ted Cruz: Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history.

Everyone is out there giving their best effort to get their message across, to get their candidate, their party elected.

Architects Need Not Apply

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 30, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There are very good reasons why I decided to take the course – both directional and educational – that I have, ones which I hardly need explain to those who regularly read this blog.

The Art Of Building Bridges

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 23, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Can You Love America?

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

The long line of personal insults aimed at President Barack Obama over the years is unlikely to come to an end with the end of his term in the White House. The latest, deepest and probably most hurtful is that aimed at him by Rudy Giuliani, claiming that he does not love America. The comment […]
