How To Save Your Job

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 13, 2016 in News & Opinion |

I’ve been sitting on this news story to see how it develops, and because I found it almost impossible to believe. The basic story line is this: the management of two airline companies are considering merging in order to be competitive in the marketplace. The workers in these two companies are scared that a fusion […]

Who Designs These Things?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 11, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I’m trying to figure out why, when you have a really good design, it isn’t used across the board. My thoughts are mainly directed towards those auto manufacturers who have the same layout in several different cars, but change small things such as the odometer. Perhaps it really is a design thing, aesthetics or whatever […]

Fact Checking: IL News and Anne Coulter

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 28, 2016 in Internet, News & Opinion |

There are times when anyone of a sane disposition, no matter how calm and collected they may wish to appear, just has the feeling that a shovel to the back of the head is as good a solution for someone else as anything sensible. There are some people who cannot think straight – but we […]

Transport: The Computer Over The Human

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 2, 2016 in Internet |

I can see the thinking behind this Tweet from the Financial Times: a car driven by a computer is not going to be distracted, not by a phone, by the kids, by a rabbit running across the road. A car driven by a computer is going to drive in the right direction, at the right […]

Sudden Snow: Winter Takes Its Toll

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 4, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It seems as if the winter weather, the sudden fall of snow, did catch more people by surprise than I had thought. Convinced that the bad weather falling on a Sunday morning would have a more positive effect on road traffic, I wrote yesterday that the chaos had been postponed, that there were no problems […]

Language: Do You Understand?

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

It is a fact of life, and one which I have come to accept, that not everyone understands what you are trying to communicate. There are language barriers everywhere, not just between countries and cultures, which are seemingly impossible to overcome. I accept, for example, that the vast majority of people I meet, bordering on […]

A Lack Of Understanding

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 17, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Undoubtedly many tens of thousands of words will be written about the terrorist attacks in Paris. Anger and fear will be expressed, or has already been. Blame will be placed, whether it is due or not. People will be attacked because of their appearance, their religion, their home country. I can easily imagine that the […]

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 […]

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. In theory everyone knows that a photograph, taking just one example, is copyrighted, even if they do […]

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 […]
