I bid you farewell Twitter 2

I bid you farewell Twitter

Chrismukkah – An interfaith event, or maybe not?

This year, (Western) Christmas (25 December – 6 January) and Hanukkah (22 December – 30 December) collide again.It’s not as bad as it’s going to be in 2024, but okay…(Eastern Christians celebrate Christmas from 7 January to 19 January, hence the “Western”.) Now, personally, I don’t officially celebrate…

Translation: Staubkind – Wunder

Foreword There’s no denying that I love the music of Staubkind. If I would not have heard this band’s music, I would never have known about the record label Out Of Line, and artists like Meinhard and BlutEngel. It’s one of those moments that the record label didn’t…

YouTube’s downfall is only part of Google’s ongoing problem

Once Google was the leader among the search engines and their future looked rosy. Hence them expanding, buying enterprises like YouTube. However, that was previously, and while Google started this year in good standings, Google is spiralling down fast, which even sources within the Google Corporation don’t deny.…
Copyright or sharing publicly online, but not both 7

Copyright or sharing publicly online, but not both

If you are a content creator, you probably have experienced it at least once, someone shamelessly copying your content. However, you could simply contact the website owner and get it removed, right? Well, the answer to that is actually often a simple “no”. But why you might ask?…
Social Media and its Bot Epidemic 8

Social Media and its Bot Epidemic

Bots, bots, and even more bots! That’s actually what social media platforms are about. Just look around you for a moment and you will see many examples of it. To start off, which has been “the hype” these last few weeks is Twitter. Let me be completely honest;…
Have a safe Cyber Christmas 9

Have a safe Cyber Christmas

As it’s Christmas Eve, it’s likely people are creating beautiful memories, memories some may want to eternalize with photos. I am going to keep this short, as the message is short: “Don’t overly share photos online!” If you wish to end the holidays with your (and your family’s)…

Random Mumblings: Languages

When looking here at my blog, you would likely not realize I am not yet the age of an adult. Neither possibly while looking at my Twitter profile; as apparently people think politics and social causes are only for those above a certain age… However, when looking at…
The American Adoption Problem 11

The American Adoption Problem

Earlier today I posted on Facebook my surprise, frustration, and annoyance of something I discovered through an American friend working at an adoption agency.

Don't be a voluntourist! 12

Don’t be a voluntourist!

As the holiday season is coming up again, so will probably there once again be a rise in voluntourism. Like most organizations are already voicing, I call out to not go out to volunteer in institutions, like children’s homes and orphanages. The question that probably will be asked…
Dare to look beyond 13

Dare to look beyond

If you know me even just a little bit, or simple checked my “about me” page, you know that the Indian-American artist KSHMR is among my top 5 most loved artists. The main reason for my love is the fact of his unique EDM sound, however, not just…
Silent November 14

YouTube video problems

Blog problems 16

Blog problems

During the past night my blog was suddenly offline, and boom, this morning suddenly my blog looks different and has a lot of broken parts. This has happened because of 2 reasons: The first were problems with the host I used, as most certainly has been noticed the…

Behind Tili-tili bom

(Advice: Fully read what I wrote before judging what I said.) I always find it funny when people at “the west” call this song (Тили-тили бом / Tili-tili bom) “creepy”… Those who suppose this is creepy, need to check out Latvian and Lithuanian folk children’s songs of the…

Unavailability

During the upcoming days Vadim will be unavailable due to family-related personal circumstances. He will be available again by the evening of the 3rd of June. While he is unavailable, he will not be able to interact with you, as he is fully disconnected from the internet until…

Russian hacking, or maybe not?

If you have not yet heard, the French elections have been target of hacking, in support of Le Pen. Similar problem as with the American elections, and once again, arrows are aimed at Russia… The disturbing part is that it actually seems not connected to Russia, and like…

Sometimes…

Sometimes you think you know, yet, Sometimes your emotions will show you facts, Sometimes emotions mean more than words, Sometimes words are useless, Sometimes you wish you could speak, yet, Sometimes you can no longer speak anymore, Sometimes your supports are wrong, yet, Sometimes you only become aware…

I am ashamed…

Who are behind the current “Youth problem”?

Nowadays it is a true blaming game… Yes, as most of you could have guessed already, who is responsible for the fact that many young persons are highly offensive… Are it the parents? – No. Are it the teachers? – No. Are it the family? – No. Are…

Nationalism and Patriotism – Not the same, but still as bad

“I am Ukrainian, and I am proud of it!” That single phrase might be disliked by many, yet that is the only truth I could speak. In a world where almost everything is disturbing, these phrases should actually not be weird, as what I do is patriotic. Patriotism…
"The" country discussion 18

“The” country discussion

It is used in several country names, the word “the” but what many do not know is when to use it. It is actually quite simple, “the” is used for countries that are plural and “the” replaces the words that states their kind of state in their official…

To serve, honor and respect 22

To serve, honor and respect

Ever heard that phrase? That phrase that ridicules one entire country? A phrase they think at that country is so important… “God bless America”… There is a reason why the United States of America has so many enemies, and that is noticable by just that single phrase… I…
We are the power of the future 23

We are the power of the future

Every young person should be aware “We are the future” is invalid, the brexit vote of the United Kingdom has been the clearest indicator in recent times. It is why I added the word “power”, as that is non-deniable, as we are the only ones who still can…
