The answer to this question is much more complicated than it seems. In fact despite its dreadful toll in human lives and economies, the pandemic is a wonderful opportunity to see societies, governments and well, all organized systems in our world, tested. Capitalism or globalization or whatever you want to call it was already in… Continue reading How many people have cheated their way to the vaccine?
If and when you are psychologically up to it, listen to some 911 calls. It is not just good indirect experience in case you are ever in a desperate situation but also heart warming to know that so many ordinary people can turn into super heroes when the need arises. It is also absolutely infuriating.… Continue reading Big Tech saves lives – 911 calls need to change
I couldn’t help it. The English in the post was so bad I had to state the case. Sure, it only had one “like” and probably almost nobody had seen it, but all the same, it cried out “auto-translate”. The sentence structure was not blatantly incorrect, just…off. Sure, there were several actual mistakes, but they… Continue reading Enemy at the gates: content marketing vs natural language (vs litigation)
You will be extremely hard-pressed to find a negative review of “The Queen’s Gambit”, a Netflix series about a chess prodigy. So let me do my best. We are living in a cinema-free pandemic period with limited choices. Important major international releases are frozen, production of new ones restricted seriously. Netflix can sit at a… Continue reading The Queen’s Gambit isn’t just bad. It is proof that Netflix has made us stupid.
Did you know that contact with silver kills the coronavirus? In fact, according to most Greek priests, it kills all strands of the virus, even the new ones, even the ones we don’t know much about yet. Because the spoons used in communion are silver. 1+1=101 In case you haven’t visited a Greek church, Holy… Continue reading Major scientific breakthrough on the virus from Greece
No, I am not one of those that make fun of the girl. I admire her and fully support the effort. From a communications point of view, Greta Thunberg greatly helped both bring forward important issues and the idiots that oppose global warming initiatives with no valid scientific or logical counter-arguments. In fact, I have… Continue reading I think Greta should cut her hair
That is not a spelling mistake in the title. That is very likely how the Greek Prime Minister might refer to you. Much like when you were eight years old at Peter’s Preparatory School, Weston-super-Mare, at your first public appearance you will wonder how he might have known that your family surname had once been… Continue reading Public Letter to Mr Joan Cheese of the Montipaithonz
When Tim Cook came out to the media as gay I was not surprised. We all knew that Apple products were disproportionately favored by gays. The statistics occasionally cropped up and then disappeared in a very…Apple sort of way. A very “gay” sort of way in fact if you wanted to use a crude and… Continue reading Apple is gay. But not as gay as the world needs it to be.
If you have any Greek friends you have probably heard the yarns. The terrible harsh measures imposed on Greece “for the banks”. Global capitalism eating up it’s children like Saturn and not a Zeus in sight to fight back. Even Alexis Tsipras, the communist trained youngster, couldn’t do a Hermes on them. He talked the… Continue reading The mythology of the Greek crisis
I was 12 or 13 years old when I came across “The crowd”. It was in Greek and must have belonged to one of my many intellectual cousins. The subtitle reads “a study of the popular mind” and I couldn’t put it down. We were guests at my aunt’s house and I read it all… Continue reading The fallacy of collective brainpower
