Banter

Jan
14

Walked around. I wondered if I was taking the right steps, you know walking on the right path. I suddenly stopped in my tracks, felt the beautiful wind caress my face as it whispered words of hope to me, hope I did not need, beauty I could not feel, my body was numb with unexpressed feelings as I watched blood tickle down my feet rushing right into the gutter. I smiled. The world seems beautiful but with a lot of ugliness beneath it, day after day people die, children are no longer safe, we infringed by the thoughts of survival, survival of the fittest.

Paris, the romantic myth

Jan
14

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Paris is no longer the city of love. It shouldn't surprise you that american movies idealized parisian love way out of proportion. A recent study shows that one in two Parisian (50.2%) is single. Celibacy is a religion there. Depressing, you say? Not really when you know the typical Parisian loves his freedom and going out to mingle is a second nature to him.

My path to becoming a blogger

Jan
13

During my Christmas holiday, I took the opportunity to do a clean up for my blog - delete badly written blog entries, mend my grammar mistakes and check if my blog’s HTML code is working fine. Despite being a blogger, I seldom visit my blog page and read my blog entries as I cringe every time I do so.

Dear journalism, give me just a little more time

Jan
13

In a world where topicality and speed have become crucial determinants of how news journalism is practised, how it is consumed and what makes it competitive and profitable, asking for “just a little more time” to report, consume and digest news, seems like a hopeless request.  Not quite as hopeless as Trump becoming diplomatic, but let’s face it, it seems that we are almost bordering on illusion here. Thus, I was rather surprised when I first heard about “Slow Journalism” a few days ago. But what exactly is “Slow Journalism”?

I didn't believe my friend until he became a social media sensation overnight!

Jan
13

About a month ago a young man’s face was recognised around the country and possibly the world, because of one youtube video upload and a couple of clicks of the share button.   A young man who loves UK grime and playing Fifa with his boys. A young man who didn’t go to university.

Loneliness on the net: double life on and offline

Jan
13

In the age of the internet and massive technological boom we are still seeking for love of any kind and simple human affection. Human beings are probably the most uncertain ones. Instead of fulfilling those needs and expressing ourselves we hide our true nature and deepest thoughts and create the perfect image, exposing ourselves online. But what is ‘perfection’ anyway and do we really share the real sides of our personal lives on the net?

What's love got to do with it? The Obamas

Jan
12

For centuries now love and power have been two things that were either in contradictory or connected, making those who possessed these two an accomplished individual. On January the 10th President Obama has sustained his farewell speech, he tackled topics ranging from the economy to marriage equality, but the pick of his speech was for sure the moment when he acknowledged his wife, Michelle Obama as the role model she was the years during her time as the First Lady.
