An Atmosphere of Shame is the worst you can have During the last three weeks, I experienced one of the most devastating working atmospheres an organization can have. I worked as a freelancer in fifteen different retail shops of a well-known brand in Germany.

Last three weeks I was traveling through France. France is well-known for being a country which is very proud of their own beautiful language “French”. Indeed France even has a quota which regulates that radio stations need to play at least 35% of French music. With having this in your mind you can now imagine […]

From Printing to Re-Editing Everything Yesterday I just wanted to print around 50 samples of a new personalized newspaper I was working on. Well, this five-minute job became, in the end, a five-hour task and my whole day was literally over. Good or Bad?

The Poké Hype The hype about Pokemon GO in the international press, in social networks, and in the word of mouth is slowly declining.
