Das ist Graz

Im 6. Jahrhundert errichteten Slawen an diesem Ort eine Burg – grad. Noch heute heißt die Stadt im Slowenischen Gradec. Russische Stadtnamen mit “grad”: Volgograd (Stalingrad), Zelenograd, Kaliningrad, Belgrad, Petrograd (Peterburg).

Österreich

All in all the quantity of Austrian newspapers, their circulation and range of subjects they pick up is rather disappointing.
At the same time Russian press if it has any interest to Austrian motives at all, can willingly buy only fried top hits, like scandals or sensational news of woman who gave birth to six babies at once, news that could be highly salable for any international paper as well.
Russians dont care who Jörg Haider, Franz Voves or Ernest Kaltenegger is.

Auslagerung von Dienstleistungen, weil es...

Cyrillic gibberish, anachronisms and Russian phrases that appear to...

Journalism and mother tongue

Is it possible at all for writing journalist with emigration background to advance in her profession competing with native speakers? We planned to meet in Sperl, but on that cold day, the cafe was full. We marched on till Leopold museum, and were lucky to find place...

Honesty

As author I praise value of writer’s honesty. As Mahatma Gandhi wrote in his autobiography: “The heart’s earnest and pure desire is always fulfilled”, so sincere author, has chances to reach heights of mastery. After rambling through books in next Vienna bookstore, I would descend in metro, and vibration of train and feeling of running forward would pacify and bring me in thoughts far beyond of my destination.
