Finally! The Mayor of Cologne, Henriette Reker, has issued the long-overdue curfew. State and federal governments are still arguing, though as if the virus would care and wait for their deliberations. ICUs in Cologne are at capacity, mainly with people of middle age. Schools are still open. Did anybody mention work from home? (City Continue reading Shutdown two, week twenty-four

This week brought us two new words: Bundesnotbremse (Federal Emergency Brake) and Brckenlockdown (Bridge Lockdown). They are both symptomatic of a complete and utter failure by our government to adequately address the Covid-19 pandemic. Not to mention the anemic progress in vaccinations. Sigh.

We cannot keep the remembrance of the Shoah only in the past. The memory must become a key for our reflection about the world today, and the future. It should become the source of our moral responsibility for the world we live in. Dr. Piotr M. A. Cywiski, Director of the Auschwitz Museum, via Twitter Continue reading Yom HaShoa

Not sure I follow this argument. When I submit my tax return my accountant (having lived/worked/inherited in two countries and having investments in two countries makes it a bit more complicated) asks me to confirm that my tax return is complete and correct to the best of my knowledge and makes very clear that it is ultimately my responsibility that it is correct and everything is declared.

So how does this guy get away with blaming the accountant for such blatant omissions? Surely he should have reviewed his return with his accountant and spotted these omissions?

Wealthy MP with slave trade links failed to publish accounts for four of his firms
Multimillionaire Tory Richard Drax blames accountant for more than a decade of missing records

#Google: Overall, we felt that #blocking third-party #cookies outright without viable alternatives for the ecosystem was irresponsible, and even harmful, to the free and open web we all enjoy.

And that, my dear users, is what you get when you have paralysed your last brain cells with cocaine in a global corporation and believe your own propaganda. Whoever believes that freedom on the internet would be endangered without third-party cookies is unfortunately hopelessly trapped in the capitalist filter bubble and far beyond good and evil.

Digitalisierte Arbeit ist endlich angekommen

Natürlich vermisse ich Famile und Freunde, aber was meine Arbeit angeht war die Pandemie bisher sehr gut zu mir: Ich gehöre zu der privilegierten Gruppe von Menschen, die gut im Home Office arbeiten können.

Ich bin freiberuflich in der IT für mehrere Kunden in verschiedenen Orten und in verschiedenen Ländern tätig und mit der Pandemie hat endlich eine umfassende Digitalisierung der Arbeit begonnen. Ich habe bis heute ein ganze Menge Projekte komplett virtuell abgewickelt - von der Akquise bis hin zur Abrechnung und ich bin begeistert, wie unkompliziert und einfach das sein kann!

Auch wenn wir im Moment nicht reisen können, so eröffnet uns die Digitalisierung der Arbeit doch eine ungeahnte Flexibilität: Ich kann am gleichen Tag morgens ein Meeting in Frankfurt haben, danach einen Workshop in Kopenhagen halten und zum Ende des Tages an einem Projekt Jour-Fixe in München teilnehmen.

Diese Flexibilität der Örtlichkeit setzt sich natürlich auch im Privatleben fort: Ich kann am gleichen Tag zum Musikhören in einen Club in Koblenz gehen und anschliessend an einer Podiumsdiskussion in New York teilnehmen. Wunderbar!

Die Pandemie beschränkt mich auf der einen Seite, auf der anderen beflügelt sie mich und ich hoffe sehr, dass wir die Beschränkungen der physikalischen Lokalität in unserem Leben nach der Pandemie weiter aufheben können.

Meine Hoffnung ist, dass wir auch in Zukunft nicht mehr davon abhängig sind, wo wir uns gerade aufhalten. Und dass ich möglichst nie wieder zum Arbeiten in ein Büro muss!

Bananas!*


Bananas!* is a suspenseful court room drama that examines the intricacies and injustices of the global politics of food.

Focusing on a landmark and highly controversial legal case pitting a dozen Nicaraguan banana plantation workers against Dole Food Corporation, Bananas!* uncovers the alleged usage of a banned pesticide and its probable link to generations of sterilized workers.

Central to both the film and case is Juan “Accidentes” Dominguez, a Los Angeles-based personal injury attorney who, although iconic within the Latino community for his ubiquitous billboard ads, is unquestionably facing the biggest case and challenge of his career.

At stake in the classic David vs. Goliath story are the futures of generations of workers and their families, as well as the culture of global, multinational business. If successful, the case could rock the economic foundations of Dole, and would open the US courts to other global victims, representing a new day in international justice.

It follows #Twitter’s deletion of a homemade treatment tweeted by Venezuelan President Nicolás #Maduro.

It may be good and right to delete #false #information about #COVID-19 - but are global corporations becoming the #MinistryOfTruth?
When do they start deleting #criticism of #capitalism because a life without capitalism is unthinkable for them?

UK now has a new Flag law!


Heil the Fuhrer!

A successful distraction move by the British Trump to change the discussion subject and people's attention from his complete failure in handling the pandemic by ignoring it for months and putting business before safety and health of the nation, total and complete failure in Brexit negotiation and implementations, total and complete failure in handling the economy and an unbelievable criminal behavior in regards of refugees seeking asylum in the country.
