News Media Working At Full Steam

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 9, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It’s been a tough few days for the media, far harder than any other election cycle we have ever experienced. Never has the media been forced to fact check so many statements, to delve so deep into the archives – their own and those of others – to sift through leaked and falsified documents, to […]

Piers Morgan: The High Moral Ground

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 8, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

The backlash against Donald Trump in the United states, following the revelations of his attitude towards women and clear belief in sexual assault and the right of the alpha male to command and control sexually, has begun. Several high-ranking Republicans have rescinded their endorsements, others have called for him to either set down from the […]

The Most Hated Man In America?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 7, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

We all have our own ideas about who is the most hated person in the USA, and for many reasons. For some it is those who have been convicted of crimes – especially rape and murder of children, or bankers – or who have been let off by the courts. For others it is politicians, […]

The Perfect Way To Start An Email

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 14, 2016 in Internet |

Never a truer Tweet was written: for those of us, and I belong to a small group who are almost fanatical about such things, a mail is not the way to go. Letter writing is the thing: real letters, on paper, through the post, from one person to another. Screenshot Source: Independent / Twitter Admittedly […]

Photography: Recycling The Old As New

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 28, 2016 in Photography |

The labor market is improving. How long have Americans waited to hear this piece of good news? Well, to be honest, not all that long since there have been regular reports that employment opportunities are growing and that the job market has seen a substantial turn for the better. At least in some areas. Perhaps […]

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 […]

Easter: Values, Risings, Greetings

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 27, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It’s one of those several times of year when everyone begins to celebrate and make claims. Claims based on a fable written several thousand years ago, and constantly changed ever since. We hear about certain values, about the rising of the dead, about how light has been brought back into the (Christian) world. The British […]

Missed Words, Different Meanings

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 19, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

When you see it… Let’s be honest, the spellchecker would not have caught this one. A grammar checker would undoubtedly have let it slip through and, clearly, an editor is not at work here. So we have a wonderful little piece where someone forgets a single, little, two-letter word, and the whole meaning of a […]

Twitter: But It’s ‘My’ Timeline

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 15, 2016 in Internet |

Let me get this right: when I come to certain social media web sites and networks, I can arrange things the way that I wish, according to my own desires. I can follow those I wish to follow, befriend those who are already (honest!) friends in Real Life, and generally act as if the whole […]

The Simplicity Of A British Breakfast

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 19, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

During the time that I was still traveling, which seems an absolute age ago now, I often came across either the English or Continental Breakfast. Mostly these were served in hotels and had such a vast difference, it was easy to see how the ‘continent’ and the ‘island’ remain separated from one another. For the […]
