We often get e-mails to promote others, sometimes they even offer a payment. Is this an ethical behaviour in media communication? Here is my short answer I gave to somebody working for Connex Digital Marketing:



you are asking to promote your article.
You should be saying, that you are paid by others.
This is not an ethical behaviour, which I would expect for a masters in communications platform, that you want us to promote.

No, we will not link your article. I will rather warn others about dubios marketing practices of on social media.


IKIGAI - the Japanese way of managing your life

CC-by-sa & rasos

Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ikiɡai]) is a Japanese concept meaning "a reason for being". Everyone, according to the Japanese, has an ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is regarded as being very important, since it is believed that discovery of one's ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.

The term ikigai is composed of two Japanese words: iki (生き?), referring to life, and kai (甲斐?), which roughly means "the realisation of what one expects and hopes for".

In the culture of Okinawa, ikigai is thought of as "a reason to get up in the morning"; that is, a reason to enjoy life. In a TED Talk, Dan Buettner referenced ikigai as one of the reasons people in the area had such long lives.

Review Capote

CC-by-sa & literature

The film Capote is based on the book “In Cold Blood” that Truman Capote wrote in 1966, it’s a novel, which detailed the horrible murder that shocked the little town of Holcomb in Kansas. The murder happened in 1959; the Clutter family was the victims here, a Kansas farmer, his wife and two kids.

You would think what does this have to do with ethics? This was just the beginning for the writer Truman Capote. If the movie Capote would be mentioned it would bring up disturbing ethical questions. This is because to get his book to be such a best seller, he went through a lot of things that would be unethical to anyone with a sense of ethics.
