Courage: Death On Your Own Terms

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 14, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Brittany Maynard has, for some people decided to take the easy way out: she has planned her own death for November 1, and already has the medication to carry it through. She is suffering from cancer and will die sooner rather most people would wish and, if the diagnosis is correct, her death would not […]

Review: Never Go Back

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 27, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

There are times when we all wonder whether we are in the right place, whether what we have worked for all our lives has really been worth it, or whether things have changed so much that what we knew, what we cared for, has vanished forever and remains just a memory. There are many reasons […]

Internet Polls: Cutting Your Options

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 11, 2014 in Internet |

We all know that statistics often reflect the desire of the people financing them to create a certain impression, to give out information which is biased in one form or another. In much the same way polls are conducted in order to gain an oversight of opinion and, according to the institution or company initiating […]

Is ALS A Fraud?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 29, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

If you haven’t caught it on the news, on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google or anywhere else and don’t know what the Ice bucket challenge is, then I will be very surprised. Depending on who happens to be pouring water – or bundles of cash – over their heads, the promotion to raise cash and donations […]

The Land Of Equality: Defining Sub-Cultures

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 24, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Did you know that the phrase Land Of The Free is not just a line in the Star-Spangled Banner? It is the title of the national anthem of Belize, and the text was written by Samuel Haynes who, in the 1920s began organizing the Universal Negro Improvement Association there. As many already know, Belize was […]

US Elections: Jumping The Gun

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 22, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

It is fair to say there is nothing humorous about the Presidential Elections in the United States. The battle for nomination as candidate for the next President seems to begin before a running election process is even complete, and it consumes more money than anyone cares to admit. Yet it could be so easy, if […]

Don’t Bite The Hand That Reviews

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 19, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I had an interesting experience yesterday on Google Plus, one which surprised me to a certain extent simply because, well, you don’t expect such things there. On Facebook and Twitter perhaps, but not on Google Plus. I was insulted by someone, and by insulted I mean in a callous and bitter manner with a few […]

Review: Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 17, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

What is it that makes a Young Adult novel suitable for its audience? This is a question which has probably troubled many authors over the years, trying to bridge the gap between children and adults in a way which will capture youthful imagination without seeming too young, but still have all the attributes of an […]

Can I Get An Amen?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 3, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s a good thing that we have religion, that we have some sort of system in place which allows us to either vent, or to be thankful. If it wasn’t for religion, we might be forced to accept that there is something else controlling our lives, something which we can understand, which we can touch, […]

Oh, You Foolish Few

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 26, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

Not so long ago I wrote about how Tumblr is becoming the latest thieves site: shoplifters posting their swag pictures for all to see and admire. Those on Tumblr, however, clearly have a little more in their heads than other people, such as a woman in West Franfort, Illinois who decided to post a selfie […]
