The Emperors New Clothes 2022 version You want critical political analysis? You want cutting-edge journalism?  Why did you come here then? Let me be the first one to say: I do not exactly understand how Crypto works. I know it is a digital currency that can be traded online. And I know that the cryptocurrency Bitcoin for example, is being created by mining which takes an extensive amount of energy/electricity (hello sustainability and saving the planet?) If you are looking for a definition online, you will find this: ' Bitcoin mining is  the process of creating new bitcoins by solving extremely complicated math problems that verify transactions in the currency . When a bitcoin is successfully mined, the miner receives a predetermined amount of bitcoin. ' Suggested business model of FTX/Alameda research via this video The only conclusion that one can draw from the FTX debacle caused by its CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is, that the majority of people do not get the concept of crypto eit

>> OMG!! 😱 I Was In A London Theatre Play 🎭 Witness For The Prosecution - And It Was Sooo Cool!!! 😊

Image
Jury member number 6 - before the show Hey everyone, In some unexpected News, I have the following update for you: I was in a real London theatre play: 'Witness For The Prosecution'. I made my London theatre debut!! 😊 It was sooo cool! How did it happen?  I bought a regular ticket for the balcony but when they scanned my code they told me I was going to get upgraded to be Jury Member number 6! To actually be part of the play!! 😱 I asked if the view is better than from the balcony - they said yes! A little bit about the back story. This play is based on the movie 'Witness For The Prosecution' starring German actress Marlene Dietrich. It is a classic in black and white from 1957. The movie is based on the book with the same title, written by Agatha Christie.  If you follow my blog regularly, you know by now, that I am drawn to the theatre world as well as law movies. So this night was a perfect combination and blend of both! ✨ The play is set in 'court' = County

>> Useful app - Today Tix: The Best London Musicals and Theatre Plays For A Good Price!

Image
Hello dear readers! A great way to spend your weekend, when you live in a city like London, is seeing   a theatre play or musical! It is something a lot of tourists come here to do, so why not make use of this possibility if you actually live here. :)  I have known about this app TodayTIX since a few years,   but only now when a friend of mine reminded me of it, did I finally use it. I got to see Amy Adams (who was nominated for an Oscar 6 times already - who knew) in 'The Glass Menagerie'.   The next one, was 'The Mousetrap' a play in the style of the movie 'Knives Out.' You follow along and have to guess who did what and why. When almost everyone has a motive.  A murder mystery.. but the play is running for much longer, a total of 70 years. 'Longest running play in the world' it says. After that, the biggest production I have seen so far  'Beauty and the Beast'. So much singing and dancing with all of the original Disney songs of course! Remin

Work hard so you can achieve as much as this goat and get your own statue.  🐐 Hello everybody! I think it is time to give you an update on my ever so exciting life! Well I work, I see London, I eat international food and listen to lawyer podcasts on youtube. Rest assured, that besides that I have absolutely nothing going on. :) After the last 2 years I think every little thing we are able to do is a lot and even though I am now back in this hectic city, I like to enjoy the small moments in between the chaos. In nature for example! Turns out London has quite a lot of palmtrees. They are my favorite. πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΄ When I see one, I can never quite tell if I am in London or actually on vacation in Spain! I remember when I went to Spain when I was 16. The beach, the humidity! But in London we have a heatwave now too. I also like them a lot because in Germany we don't have them. At least not in my hood. πŸ˜Ž Editor-in-Chief reporting on the scene What else, quick review of the new (?) passion f

Thank you for this important lesson Prof. Dr. Malf. As a German I feel mildly offended yet also very entertained by this content. You can also look it up under 'When Americans Move To Germany'. In our defence I must say, this can happen in any smaller town, I believe. However, I am grateful for this valuable lesson and will take it into consideration. This is memorable content. πŸ˜Š #glance

Scotty Reimann - cutest dog in the world. Hello everybody!  Nice to see you here! How are you? I hope better than before.  I have a little update for the frequent readers of my blog. I am now back in the UK full time and as I adjust to big city life again, I want to take a moment to acknowledge not only my family in Germany, I went through a big part of the lockdown with I also have to mention this little ball of joy, energy and happiness - my dog Scotty! AKA the cutest dog in the world. We got him from a shelter several years ago. Now, he has his own garden to run around and play in! What a success story. πŸ˜Š I don't know how people got through the lockdown without pets, I think they make such a positive difference in day to day life. IBreakTheNews.com is turning 10 this year! My professional look is different than my lockdown look. And as for Scotty - he is just so friendly and energetic and HUNGRY. Almost all of the time. As you can see, he once again got his summer fur-cut now.

>> Style News: Dear Brands Of The World - I Don't Want No Mom Jeans! πŸ‘–And I'm Tall.

Image
Jeans - casual every day outfit ideally mid rise or low cut. Why do the brands of the world not produce good quality jeans anymore? And I don't even like/need branded jeans. As long as they fit and the quality is a-ok, I take them. But I want no ripped/destroyed/distressed jeans when I buy a brand new pair, I want no high waisted jeans and I especially want no MOM JEANS! But this is all you see and can get now.. I have had this problem before the lockdown and the situation has not improved. The opposite is the case. They seem to not make jeans for tall people anymore either. I am 5'9". Do I really need to take a sewing class and make my own pants now? I hope not. :) A typical case of the mom jeans who is buying this?
