The Schrankhaus: Living on twelve square meters.

In the downtown areas of many cities the demand exceeds the offer for housing by far. Sharply rising rents are the result. Not only is this, that so many people in the town want to live, but also the changing living conditions: the number of single person households has steadily increased over the years. This provides architects and urban planners completely new challenges. On the construction trade fair bautec which opened yesterday in Berlin, is it currently presents an interesting concept: the only twelve-square-meter Schrankhaus wooden.

Gossip Vs. Rumour
Rumour and Us

RUMOUR

A rumour is a widespread report that is unproved in fact. It often serves to provoke, or to increase, antisocial collective behaviour. Rumour must be distinguished from lack of communication, for the rapid spread of rumour may very well be due to effective communication.
The term rumour refers not to a method of its communication, but to its content. Under crowd conditions, it becomes difficult to check the source and accuracy of the information one receives, and thus to evaluate it, and so rumours are acted on as if they were true information.

When you close your eyes and try to think of the shape of your own body, what you imagine (or, rather, what you feel) is quite different from what you see when you open your eyes and look in the mirror. The image you feel is much vaguer than the one you see. And if you lie still, it is impossible to imagine yourself as having any particular size or shape.

About Agony Column

THE AGONY COLUMN
There is one part of women’s magazines that every man reads. It is the section popularly known as the ‘agony column’, where women, and increasingly men, write for advice on what are sometimes referred to as ‘affairs of the heart’. The person who answers these letters usually  has a very reassuring sort of name, which suggests a gentle middle-aged lady of great wisdom and experience, but who at the same time is as homely and approachable as your favourite aunt.
