Trump And The Buzzfeed Dossier

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 11, 2017 in News & Opinion |

If there wasn’t so much news at the moment, especially surrounding the President-elect of the United States, then we would just be reading about the weather and precious little else. Either that, or trying to struggle through stories about dogs, cats, and miraculous twins. And there we have a problem: there is so much news, […]

Spock: Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 11, 2014 in Internet |

Censorship is a strange thing, especially when it is political censorship. Take, as an example, the decision by the Chinese censor to remove all references to Vladimir Putin placing a warming blanket around the shoulders of Peng Liyuan, wife of the Chinese Premier Xi Jinping, to protect her from the rain. Clearly, for the Chinese, […]

Review: Iron Kingdom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 16, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

As everyone who has spent more than ten minutes in a classroom knows, history is a boring subject packed with dates and names which have to be learned by heart so that, at the end of the year, everything can be regurgitated on an exam paper. The textbooks given out are bland, filled with maps […]

Boycott Sochi!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 7, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

One of the most ridiculous things I have heard in the past few days here, is that people should show their disagreement with the politics in Russia by boycotting the Olympic Games. Clearly this is easy enough if you are a state leader or a politician: you simply do not attend any of the ceremonies. […]

Between You And Me

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 6, 2014 in News & Opinion |

If there is one thing we Americans are good at, it is getting up on our high horse, seeking the moral high ground, and pointing our fingers at other people, other nations for their actions. Thereby we often forget, and are reminded by revelations not long after, that we do exactly those things we accuse […]

Review: Der Geiger

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 25, 2013 in Articles and Reviews |

I will say right at the start of this short review that Der Geiger (The Violinist) disappointed. It is a wide-ranging theme, modern-day with a touch of history thrown in, covering the search for family roots and a violin which, to the last member of the family, means a great deal. Photo Credit: Emily’s mind […]

Snowden’s Russian Asylum: Extremely Disappointing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 2, 2013 in News & Opinion |

Did the US government really expect anything other than that another country would grant Edward Snowden asylum? The fact that it is Russia, well known for its hatred of foreign spies and anything which goes against the hard and fast rules of an almost totalitarian government, must be the bitterest pill of all. However, that […]

Draconian Times

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 12, 2013 in News & Opinion |

Well, it looks like I will have to scrub one country from my ‘to visit’ list, for the time being at least. I know that some countries, some governments, have problems with the lifestyles and beliefs of other people but, if they are just there and being themselves without upsetting anything, without being violent, or […]

Think Before…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 11, 2012 in News & Opinion |

The power of the Internet. Or, perhaps, the power of those who use the Internet for whatever reason. There can’t be anyone who hasn’t heard that prospective employees are being checked out on the Internet – through Facebook and other social media sites – to see whether they are suitable for a job or not. […]

Political Promises.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 7, 2012 in News & Opinion |

Depending on which sources you happen to read or rely on, Europe, thanks to the elections in France and Greece over the weekend, is going to collapse and there is no hope for the future of the Euro as a viable currency. Several share indexes have reported losses in business share values and there is […]
