Praise and admonition to 40 years Star-Wars

Praise and admonition to 40 years Star-Wars

Star Wars turned 40 years in 2017 I have to admit: I'm not the big Star-Wars enthusiast, I'm more in favour of Star-Trek. Nonetheless I really like these movies as well. And I feel it as a kind of personal duty, devoting Star-Wars a tribute in this big anniversary-year. To me it's also important mentioning, that I write this because of the „Big 4

About 4 years ago, in 2013, I stumbled upon the young British popera-duo "Jonathan & Charlotte" (this is Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli). Shortly thereafter I wrote a blog-entry about them.1 year later, in 2014, the duo broke-up then, whereat I wrote another post. Both blog-entries have become and still today are big hits, especially the

The new spaceship Enterprise turned 30 Today exactly 30 years ago, on 28th of September 1987, a very important event for Star Trek, for the science-fiction-genre and even for TV-series overall took place: The 1st airing of „Star Trek: The next Generation“, in German „Raumschiff Enterprise: Das nächste Jahrhundert“ (Starship Enterprise: The

Ulrich Lintl at the Beachvolleyball World-Championship 2017

In Vienna at the Donauinsel (Danube-Island) from 28th of July to 6th of August (so this week) the beachvolleyball world-championship takes place. So in the true sense of the word a major-event takes place in my backyard – I live only a 10 minutes walk away from the location on Donauinsel. And that's why it was absolutely clear to me, that I'm gon

Fire in the Alps Vienna 2017 for freedom of expression

Viennese Fire in the Alps for freedom of expression Since 1988 on every 2nd Saturday in August in the whole Alpine-region the initiative "Feuer in den Alpen" (Fire in the Alps) takes place.

Global peace instead of World-War-3, Mr. Trump!

An open letter to the President of the United States, Donald Trump: Dear Mr. President Trump! Early in the morning at 7th of April, you as President ordered to attack an airbase of the Syrian army with cruise-missiles type "Tomahawk". Much is uncertain. But it is for certain that you wanted to send a signal. And it's certain, that you play with glo

Scotland and the freedom of speech.

Scotland and the freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is implemented to facilitate public discourse. It is not implemented so that people can insult each other. Including in the US, people are not “able to say whatever they want”. Some expressions are criminal, others are sufficiently offensive that they could have legal consequences. Similarly
