You don’t have to be Brad or Angelina

The Corona crisis, which took the whole world by surprise, has changed quite a few things in our lives. We hug less frequently but we walk the dog more often. We scrub our hands tirelessly; we learn how to identify a smile by looking at the eyes while the mouth is covered by a mask. […]

We have a solution for the Corona Virus!

As if we did not have enough problems in our life – global warming, endless traffic jams and Harry & Meghan’s withdrawal from the royal family – Corona, known until recently only as Mexican beer, came along and introduced a new dimension of hysteria into our peaceful, worry-free lives. Who would have thought that a […]

An Introduction to Spoken Dothraki

Winter has finally come, a bit late… And no, I’m not talking about the minor drizzle that calls itself “rain” which briefly made an appearance in our region only to make way to the soft sun. I am talking about my new addiction. An addiction which hundreds of millions have only just recovered from, but […]

My International Networking Month
