Sollten wir für Aufgaben beim Bewerben bezahlt werden?

Die Corona-Krise hat auch Spuren auf dem Arbeitsmarkt hinterlassen. Arbeitnehmer:innen auf der ganzen Welt verlassen ihre alten oder wenig erfüllenden Jobs und weigern sich, zu dem Leben zurückzukehren, das sie vor COVID hatten.

Their leaders wear tall hats, garlanded with fruit, feathers and flowers; their faces are a damp, mossy, green; their ankles jingle with bells. It is very dark: the only light comes from a...

Mack 10 & Tha Dogg Pound Nothin But the Cavi Hit

Welcome to another Thursday and you know that mean we are closer to the weekend. My playlist for the week started out with the Stillmatic album from Nas. One album that haven’t been played for years was the Rigomortiz joint by DMG. Eve’s Eve-Olution, a personal J. Cole mixtape and the joint Scrappy/Trillville joint also made the cut.

Bob Dylan’s Famous Televised Press Conference After He Went Electric (1965)

I don’t think I’m tangible to myself. I mean, I think one thing today and I think another thing tomorrow. I change during the course of a day. I wake and I’m one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I’m somebody else. I don’t know who I am most of the time. It doesn’t even matter to me. – Bob Dylan, 1997 Newsweek interview A too-cool-for-school rock star emerged from seemingly nowhere when Bob Dylan went electric at Newport with his touring band, the Band — a Dylan un...

Hear how ominous YMCA sounds in minor key

I will forever be intrigued by the malleability of music. Musicians can produce an endlessly enrapturing array of melodies and arrangements from a seemingly limited spectrum of notes and measures.

Tattoos mit weißer Tinte sind perfekt für zierliche Akzente

Kleine und zierliche Tattoos sind schon seit Jahren superbeliebt – und vor allem für all diejenigen die perfekte Wahl, die mit ihrer Tinte nicht die volle Aufmerksamkeit auf sich ziehen wollen. Gerade an eher „versteckten“ Körperstellen – wie hinter dem Ohr oder am Finger – können solche Motive subtil und geheimnisvoll wirken. Insbesondere, wenn sie mit weißer Tinte gestochen sind. Die ist in der EU auch noch erlaubt, wohingegen seit dem 4. Januar 2022 viele potenziell gefährliche Tattoo-Farben...
