Trump’s Deportation Plans: A Reminder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 26, 2015 in News & Opinion |

To follow the political news in the USA, especially when it comes to the various election campaigns already being waged, and gain a fair and balanced idea of what is happening, you’d need to watch all of the news channels twenty-four hours a day and read both the serious press and, sadly, the gutter-press too.

Why Do North Americans Fall For Payment Scams?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 16, 2015 in News & Opinion |

We live in an age when mass communication, the gathering and distribution of news and information, when education – in theory – is at a high point. In the Western world there are few who do not have some form of access to the Internet or, at the very least, a television with cable or […]

The Republican Debate: Too Many Eggs?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 7, 2015 in News & Opinion |

First off, I didn’t watch the debate and, to be perfectly honest, with so much time until the real campaigns get going, it interested me less than anyone can possibly imagine. The aftermath, however, should interest everyone considerably more than the well-practiced, well-performed theatricals from all sides involved; from candidates and interviewers, reporters and laypersons […]

Comparing The Fox News Debate To Spam

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 6, 2015 in Internet |

Twitter timelines, at least the media ones, have been filled with all the usual horror stories for the last few weeks – who or what has been shot and where, how the country is going to the dogs in a bread basket, panic in Europe as one country or another threatens to leave the Euro […]

Well, That Accelerated Quickly…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 5, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It seems to me, reading through thousands of different Twitter posts during quiet moments, that there are those who talk and those who just shout. I’m glad, in many ways, that talking is limited to one hundred and forty characters – although I have seen the limit used and then the [1/12843957] for those prepared […]

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 […]

Cosby: The Empty Chair

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 29, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

You must be living on the dark side of the moon if you haven’t heard, in one way or another, of the accusations leveled against the comedian, the Dad in a Cardigan, Bill Cosby. Just as so many people, over so many years, in all areas of society – but especially in those of law […]

Gun Control: It’s Never The Right Time

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 28, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There’s a good reason why no one wants to talk about gun control: it would be inconsiderate to the families of those people who have just been killed in yet another rampage on American soil. Rather, let’s make the suggestion that even more people should be armed, such as kindergarten teachers, Army recruiters, theater popcorn […]

What’s In A Name? Play On Words

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 13, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I wonder who comes up with headlines like this. Do they just appear in their minds or are hours of strenuous thinking hidden behind a few words? This amused me today, and I am sure you can see why: Screenshot Source: Twitter / Page Six It matches, almost perfectly, the photograph of a 50 Cent […]

Cruz: This Explains Everything

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 1, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Just in case anyone didn’t catch it, this is what Ted Cruz said to Sean Hannity following the Supreme Court decisions on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and marriage equality: Ted Cruz: Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history. Which begs the question: was he paying attention while the decision […]
