The Internet and social media – the coolest technologies of the last few decades – do have their dark sides, too.

Ancient sciences have been teaching it and have been alternately accepted and ignored over many long centuries.

Now, when modern science comes to the same conclusion - it is confirmed and we can breathe again. With tidiness all around us, we will feel better, reduce tension, and argue less. Especially in the long run.

For those who judge a country strictly by its cuisine, the following words might be little liberating. Associating beer with Germany or wine with France no longer needs to be absolute, and similarly there may also be some common ground when it comes to food, if looked at more closely.

Confusing Homophones

The other day I was explaining about the „good knight“. The observant ones already see where I‘m headed. While on paper it doesn't show, orally it creates a confusion and is mistaken for „good night“. Homophones are tricky words that sound the same while spelled differently. Today, in our language article, we check out the most common homophones.

One proverb says: "There is beauty in simplicity" and that is often the truth. Check out our little photo gallery of minimalistic pictures that carry that unsaid mysterious message.
