Setting Priorities Over Reality

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 19, 2017 in Immoral Conversations |

I read in the German news today that seven children lost their parents in one single crash on a highway here. Someone lost control of their vehicle, possibly hit a small patch of ice which hadn’t been cleared away properly, and destroyed a complete family. Screenshot Source: Twitter / AP Oddities And then I read […]

Putting Your Trust In God, Or Reality?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 27, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I have nothing against people who wish to believe, no matter what their chosen path is and so long as it is for them. I’m not a fan of those who insist on going from door to door, selling their religion, their religious wares or, worse still, insisting that they know the only way and […]

Donald Trump Challenges Barack Obama

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 26, 2016 in Internet |

A British newspaper recently claimed that one Tweet from Donald J Trump has been mocked by other Twitter users. If they had been keeping up with the news, and with Twitter, they’d have seen that every Tweet is mocked, and not just by other Twitter users; also by the news media, internationally on social and […]

The New, Younger, Fashionable Doctor Who

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 25, 2016 in Internet |

You could be forgiven for thinking, taking only the Tweet from the BBC as your reference, that Doctor Who has been reinvented as an American super hero in tight underpants and a mask. Perhaps they are trying to jump on the bandwagon which is Marvel Comics and the success of their super hero films, well, […]

Anis Amri Is Dead: Now The Work Begins

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 23, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The news that Anis Amri, the terrorist suspected of driving a lorry into the Christmas market in Berlin, is dead came from Italy and spread very quickly through the media. For many this is good news; a terrorist has been eliminated and cannot strike again. For others it is merely the beginning, and the trail […]

News Media And Terrorism: Verify First!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Yesterday evening a large lorry drove into a crowd of Christmas market visitors in Bremen. Latest reports say that twelve people died and about fifty were injured. I followed the news live on Twitter, and especially the news coming from those people so far away from the course of events that they could have no […]

Where A Typo Shouldn’t Be

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 19, 2016 in Internet |

A few days ago we saw a whole mess of Twitter comments, and newspaper reports, about a typo from Donald Trump. In a less-than-well-thought-out Tweet he used the (non) word unpresidented rather than the (real) word unprecedented when blowing hot air about China intercepting a drone in international waters. I wrote about it here and, […]

When A Typo Makes A Difference

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 17, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

You’ll have caught it in the news sometime recently, the hack on the DNCs mail server, and on Hillary Clinton herself, was caused by a typo. Instead of writing illegitimate someone wrote legitimate and possibly caused a phishing virus to embed itself in a computer, allowing access to all the information stored there. It could […]

Loan Interest: How Much Are You Paying?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 16, 2016 in News & Opinion |

This is the way it works: you’re short of cash and need a quick loan. You know someone, or there is a payday loan company near you, and you get some ready cash to help you through the day, a few days, the week. Simple as that. Except that the interest many people pay on […]

Playing The Stock Market

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 14, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Two days ago a small thought came to me, after I had seen reports about the troubles Boeing and other companies have had, or could potentially have, when Trump lets his thumbs do the talking through Twitter. In between the realization that these Tweets will probably be his press releases now, whether he wants to […]
