Seeing the beauty in ordinary things makes life more fun ...
What just came to my mind today, I think one of the greatest things in the world is coincidence. The unexpected makes life exciting and worthwhile, even when it's bad things happening, there's almost always the chance it changes life for the better. Much nicer of course when great/lovely things happen, both needed, though, to make it the real life!
And some articles again from this last week:
First a German petition against Monsanto, here.
A German article about the recent TTIP events, here.
A season calender in German about when to eat what from an environmental/sustainability standpoint, here.
An article about why it might be too late for our oceans, here.
Some funny modified brand slogans with kind of a true statement behind each of them, here.
A German article about why media and new technologies have nothing to do with content, so why curse smartphones, tablets or e-readers when all you can do with it is the same as in the old days with newspapers or books but in a more handy, easier way, here.
Ongoing scandals around the Berlin BER airport, here, German.
A film tip, German, about waste, it's called "Weggeworfen", here.
Shocking images about how Israelis celebrate bombing Gaza, here. There's also coverage of protests against biased media in this conflict, here.
Obama still has not closed down Guantanamo, as he had promised back then. But there's also terrible methods to house prisoners in the Federal prisons elsewhere in the country. Have a look here.
Some news about Fukushima after a while, no good ones, here.
And last but not least a really good film about the gloomy situation our world is facing today on so many levels. But instead of only showing how fragile the whole system has become it's taking it a step further, there is hope in our seemingly hopeless world, we just have to keep pushing it into the right direction and hit the critical mass that could trigger a real change. Recommended! It's here.
