CSS gives us such powerful possibilities to create even better websites, even 2021. Although there are many frameworks that help us designing websites even faster, the “basic” CSS has lots of great features that are still important and useful in 2021.

In this article I’d like to show you five of these tricks in detail.

1. Animations

Everyone loves moving content on a website. There are some easy ways to realize moving or changing elements in CSS. Let’s say you want to let an emoji express feelings even more then emojis already do, you can let them move or jump like this:

Most of the time it is quite annoying: You participate in a referral partner program, for example at Amazon, and only rarely a purchase and the associated commission materialize.

Promotions on social media are usually very successful, but followers find alternative ways to get to the advertised products. In this case, the advertising partner profits twice, but the influencer on social media profits much less. This is because the direct route to the product in the online store is often an obstacle course and the frustration in the process is big.

This is where a central dilemma arises: In the…

Auf den ersten Blick ist es doch unlogisch. Die Angst vor einer übermächtigen Regierung, einer geheimen Weltverschwörung aller Politiker und Wirtschaftsbosse, ein kinderbluttrinkender Promi… auf diese Ideen muss man erst einmal kommen. Wenn man jedoch die Gedanken Rechtsextremer analysiert, kann man daraus schließen, dass diese Denkweise nachvollziehbarer ist als gedacht.

Zunächst soll einmal klargestellt werden, dass nicht alle Corona-Leugner und Verschwörungstheoretiker Neonazis sind. Dass sie aber für die Botschaften dieser Gruppe empfänglich sind, das kann man durchaus in…


The reasoning is tough, but clear.

At first glance, it is illogical. Fear of an overbearing government, a secret world conspiracy of all politicians and business bosses, a celebrity drinking children’s blood… How can someone believe this stuff?

Every country is dealing differently with the Covid-19 pandemic. This is partly due to the fact that different levels of knowledge allow politicans to make different decisions.

While the Chinese government had almost no information about this new virus and made regulations very rigorous but without scientific consideration, Europeans have already had more time to think about how the continent can get through this crisis as best as possible.

Think of one of your first dates: It doesn’t take long before the other person asks what you are doing professionally. It is often said, that the first impression counts, but sometimes it is not only the appearance, it is also what we do in our lives. The profession is very important in dating. Standout CV carried out a study in which two fictitious profiles with changing job titles were measured in the dating app Tinder based on their swipes. The test period lasted half a year. Both homosexual and heterosexual profiles were addressed.

Let’s start with the least attractive…

It is no secret that Europeans have never really understood the Republican political course. It is too difficult for us to understand, how liberal gun laws can be approved. The small-scale political landscape, which has prevailed in Europe, can hardly be compared to a two-party system.

There are also extremely “special” heads of government in Europe, who have once again proven in the corona crisis, that nothing matters except their ego. This is sold to the population as patriotism. …
