Ashley Madison: Women And Dating Sites

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 30, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

To a certain extent, I feel sorry for all those men who have been caught out by the Ashley Madison hacking affair. Sorry that their private lives have been revealed, that they now fear their secrets will come out into the open, that marriages or relationships have been destroyed. My feelings are tempered, as you […]

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 […]

I Was There: Selfies And Disaster

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 23, 2015 in Internet |

Selfies, the fad of taking a photograph of yourself, is not a modern thing no matter what people may say. Artists through the centuries have recorded their own image in their works since man first discovered that he could scratch on cave walls, and many of the most famous Masters have included themselves in world […]

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 […]

Jobsworth: A Little Thought Goes…

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

For anyone who doesn’t already know it, I travel a great deal by bus. Every college day I make my way to the local bus station, climb into a bus which takes me to Bremen, change over to a tram which takes me almost to the college door and, every evening, I do the same […]

Selfies: Is An Apology Necessary?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 11, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I sometimes think that society hasn’t got it all together yet. In fact, I’m fairly sure that this is true, and that society – as a generalized term – will never manage to get it all together in any way, shape or form even when it comes to the most simple of things such as […]

Freedom Of Expression And Speech Over Religion

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 20, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Do people really appreciate, let alone understand, what it is that they are marching in favor of? Do those same people understand the massive difference between what is being claimed as a Right, as a Freedom, and the Rights and Freedoms of those people on the other side of the street? The killing of so […]

Je Suis Charlie: The Final Censor

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 8, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is one thing to remove a few cleavages because a censor does not feel them to be appropriate for a modern-day audience, it is quite another thing to use a weapon to perform an act of censorship. As I wrote about the Chinese censorship the other day, about the banning of a film by […]

Shock, Horror And The Art Of Clickbait

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 1, 2014 in Internet |

Have you ever seen something which really grabs your attention, either in real life or here in our virtual world, gone into or clicked through to see what it is all about and discovered that there is nothing there of interest? Or, worse still, that the attracting headline, title or offer bears absolutely no resemblance […]

Art And Other Thoughts On Staying Here

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 21, 2014 in Personal |

Yesterday I wrote about the questions leveled at me, about the pointlessness of staying on in college, going back to the States, living a life of comfort. Today something which I have been giving a lot of thought to in recent weeks: staying here. Now, by staying here I do not mean the same as […]
