The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra has urged the next government to embark on a comprehensive tax reform in an attempt to reduce emissions.

Sitra on Monday stated that the need to shift the focus of taxation away from labour and entrepreneurship towards environmental impacts arises from the much-discussed report published earlier yesterday by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

          Costly city homes, crumbling country houses – Finland's top 5 housing problems      Cache   Translate Page      

Parliament’s audit committee issued a report on Tuesday outlining five major problems with housing policy in Finland. The committee concluded that policy has been inconsistent while the state has taken a back seat and public costs have been skyrocketing.

The report highlights what the committee sees as the main problems affecting Finnish housing policy and proposes solutions for them. However the list of proposals is no silver bullet that would fix the housing crunch; the recommendations primarily target the next administration with ideas such as a two-year development programme.

Supply and demand mismatch

One of the most intractable issues in Finland’s is the mismatch between supply and demand when it comes to housing stock. Growing urban centres in particular can provide fewer homes than people need but in areas suffering from negative migration, property owners find it difficult to sell their homes.

This situation complicates life for people looking to relocate for work, forcing them to remain in dying regions stuck with a home that they cannot sell, while growth centres suffering a worker shortage can’t recruit employees from far-flung areas.

The audit committee’s proposal to address this issue is to develop a two-year housing programme with long-term goals and strategies for achieving them.

Expensive Helsinki homes, depreciating properties in remote areas

Over the years spending on housing has expanded sharply and an estimated 15 percent of people in Finland don’t earn enough to cover their housing expenses. Some are forced to fill in the gaps with housing subsidies, which sucks more than two billion euros from government coffers each year.

There is a shortage of affordable housing, especially in the Helsinki region, which is aggravating the labour shortage in the area, particularly in the service sector where wages may be low.

State-subsidised rental housing accounted for about seven percent of the annual housing stock in the 2010s. The audit committee noted that in the decades between 1970 and 1990, the proportion of state-backed housing was around 21 percent.

MPs on the committee called for the adoption of a cooperative model for so-called social housing. Applicants would include people who are not able to qualify for market-price homes because of their incomes. The committee recommended that the government introduce this model before the next general election due in April 2019.

Mould-ridden homes an ongoing headache

Although the capital region has seen an uptick in the construction of new housing stock, MPs said that it is still not enough to significantly dent the current housing shortage. Moreover construction projects have been stymied by a lack of suitably-qualified labour, causing contractors to cut corners at the expense of quality. Down the road, this could result in moisture and mould problems.

The committee said that problems related to shoddy workmanship continue to occur despite efforts to address the issue in recent years. It suggested that government commission on a report on householders stranded in what it called a mould trap.

Suburban development a cause for concern

According to experts interviewed by the committee the period between the 1990s and the 2010s has seen uneven development in some suburban areas in terms of declining educational levels and increasing unemployment.

These districts are now home to rising numbers of elderly singles, as fewer families with children and young adults settle there. In addition some suburbs are becoming home to growing numbers of foreign-language groups among whom the unemployment rate is higher than that of the Finnish population, according to the report.

The committee called for heading off the problem of segregation with a planned mix of different kinds of housing and by improving immigrant integration. It also recommended a long-term suburban development programme that would extend across several administrations.

Overhaul for support systems

Every year the state spends a significant amount of money on producing new housing stock as well as paying subsidies directly to households. In 2017, the government paid out some 2.7 billion euros in housing support.

The same problems that affect the broader housing market trouble the state’s housing production programme. There are never enough units in the Helsinki region and at the same time the rest of the country is full of dilapidated empty state-supported rentals located in remote areas.

The number of abandoned state-backed rentals across Finland has doubled since the year 2000 and increased for six consecutive years. At the end of last year, the number of state-supported rentals in the country that stood empty for at least 60 days was 8,800.

Meanwhile housing benefits paid directly to households has skyrocketed in recent years and people are increasingly turning to income support to help pay the rent. The committee called for the next administration to completely overhaul of the entire subsidy system at the same time that the country’s benefits system is reformed.


          Service workers’ union issues security guard strike warning      Cache   Translate Page      

The service workers’ union PAM said Tuesday that it had issued a strike warning for affecting about 8,500 employees in the security guard sector. If the union proceeds with strike action it would begin at midnight on 24 October and continue until midnight on Friday 26 October.

PAM said in a statement that ongoing negotiations over a new collective agreement for the sector ended in a stalemate on Monday. The talks with the employers’ representative Palta had been in progress since the spring and PAM claimed that the discussions had been complicated by Palta’s reluctance to arrive at a solution that would be satisfactory for both sides.

“We have pursued an agreement for the security guard sector that would provide employees with the same level of pay rises that workers in other sectors have already received. We also wanted to adjust imbalances in the pay structure and take into consideration the field’s special requirements. We want to find a resolution that would encourage workers to commit to their job and want to stay in the field. However this was not the case with the employers,” PAM chair Ann Selin said in the statement.

According to Selin, Palta did not genuinely want to agree a salary increase, but instead has clung to a negotiating position that would weaken the status of employees in the sector.

“We cannot accept this. We have therefore abandoned the negotiations and are considering industrial action,” the union head added.


          Hundreds of scientists, leaders in Lapland for Arctic Biodiversity Congress      Cache   Translate Page      

Finland is hosting the Arctic Biodiversity Congress this week, where 450 scientists, government officials, indigenous peoples and experts from 26 countries are discussing safeguarding the Arctic environment. Finland is chair of the Arctic Council from 2017-2019, and hosting two high-level environmental meetings this month.

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö was also in attendance at this week's congress, which began, well, above the Arctic Circle, in Lapland's city of Rovaniemi on Tuesday.

Niinistö opened the four-day congress by pointing out what was likely already on many attendees' minds, a report issued Monday by the IPCC - the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - which said that avoiding global climate chaos will require an unprecedented transformation of society and the world economy, and that time is running out to avoid disaster.

The report called for radical cuts in energy consumption and a rapid shift away from fossil fuels.

"As we all know, the IPCC just yesterday published its latest special report on global warming. It had a very clear message to policymakers. We urgently need to enhance and speed up our efforts to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement," Niinistö said.

"This is particularly relevant for the Arctic. As the IPCC report points out, the Arctic region is one of the most vulnerable systems on our planet, if and when global warming continues. And on the other hand, the melting of sea ice and other changes in the Arctic region accelerate climate change on a global scale. I have said this before: if we lose the Arctic, we lose the globe," Niinistö continued.

Finland seeks action from Arctic states

Niinistö also said Finland would like to see Arctic states, at "the highest political level commit to reducing black carbon emissions. Reducing flaring in oil and gas production, switching from heavy fuels to LNG in ship engines, upgrading old-fashioned power plants, and preventing wildfires."

"The discussions I have had preparing for the possible [Arctic] summit have given me reason for some optimism. Climate change may not be the best conversation starter in every capital these days, but you can still find constructive ways to address the concrete issues behind it," Niinistö said.

"There is hope. We still have a chance to save the Arctic, and to save the globe. But there is no time to waste," he said.

Biodiversity in the Arctic

This week's congress will feature keynote speeches from prominent experts in Arctic science and policy, and global environmental cooperation.

The environment ministry's councillor on environmental biodiversity, Marina Von Weissenberg, is one of the conference organisers and said she has high hopes for the meeting, adding that the IPCC report will likely spark debate at this week's meeting.

"There will certainly be a great deal of discussion. We know that climate change is the biggest threat to the Arctic region. The official goal is [an overall] global warming limit of 1.5 degrees, which in the Arctic region means an increase in temperature of between 6-7 degrees. It is clear that the flora and fauna will suffer terribly," she said.

"I hope that the topics discussed at the conference give a little nudge to the UN system, that we have to follow up on agreements we've made on biological diversity and transport sector regulations," von Weissenberg said.

The meeting will also feature scientific reports on the acidification of the Arcitic Sea and how environmental toxins are affecting fish and other marine life.

Science rules at Arctic Council

Although research is not always taken into consideration by policy makers, von Weissenberg said the Arctic Council listens to researchers.

"The Arctic Council has done a great job. It has been a joy to observe cooperation between, for example the US, Canada, Finland and Russia, which is based on the best scientific data available," von Weissenberg said.

The Arctic region is one of the areas on the planet least affected by humans, but it is also threatened by global climate change and exploitation of resources. Local communities, as well as indigenous peoples rely on the Arctic for their livelihoods but climate change in the region also poses serious threats for the entire world, according to von Weissenberg.

"Even though it's a small number of countries we're talking about [in the Arctic region], the polar region impacts the condition of the entire planet," she said.

          Human rights and women journalists groups granted Finnish democracy award      Cache   Translate Page      

Finland’s Justice Ministry has conferred its annual democracy award on two groups, the Finnish League for Human Rights and Women Journalists in Finland. The two NGOs beat 15 other candidates nominated for the award.

The human rights organisation was recognised for a website upgrade project that involved collaboration between the NGO and student and teacher groups.

The ministry singled out the Women in Journalists NGO for its Learning Together project and network which produced events such as a photo exhibition featuring photos shot by female journalists trained in Afghanistan.

The democracy award aims to highlight and share good practices among members of civil society in promoting democracy and human rights education.

The award comes with a 10,000-euro cash prize that will be divided between the recipients.

This year marks the fifth time the award has been distributed. The panel of judges comprised former President Tarja Halonen and Helsinki University education department professor Arto Kallioniemi.


          Minister defends Finland's push to clear forests for biofuels      Cache   Translate Page      

In a report issued on Monday, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) emphasized the importance of forests as a natural carbon sink in the fight against global warning, advising countries to halt deforestration if at all possible.

Ministry for Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä appeared on Yle's Aamu-tv breakfast programme on Tuesday to respond to renewed criticism of the government's biofuel push, inspired by the IPCC report. Opponents say increased harvesting in Finnish forests is not sustainable, nor is it the right path for Finland to follow.

"It is the right one, and the thing I am most pleased about, is that Finnish businesses see it more as an opportunity than a threat," the minister said.

He added that plans for a new biofuel refinery will not be reconsidered in light of the IPCC's comments. A Chinese-owned company named Kaidi plans to build a biodiesel refinery in Kemi that will produce 200,000 metric tons of biofuel per year in 2019.

"We have to work to move away from fossil fuels towards renewable energy," Lintilä said. "We have to remember that our need for energy is forecast to grow. We have to produce this energy somehow, and in my understanding, the desire to increase nuclear power is quite low. This is a difficult problem we have to confront."

One of the main objectives of Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä's government upon gaining office was making Finland a "pioneer in the bioeconomy" , in other words, the use of renewable, bio-based natural resources, environmentally friendly clean technologies and efficient recycling of materials.

A specific goal of this push was a goal to increase the use of wood as a source of renewable biofuel energy by 15 million cubic metres a year. Finland has plentiful forests, as over three-quarters of its land area is covered by trees. In 2016, slightly over 17 percent of this forest land was protected.

          Kela to revisit controversial new criteria for therapy provider tendering      Cache   Translate Page      

Public benefits administrator Kela announced on Monday that it will launch an investigation into its revised tendering policy for medical rehabilitation services. The agency said it expects to complete the probe in March 2019.

Last March, Kela started evaluating therapy providers in Finland using new criteria that assigned an 80-percent weighting to price and 20 percent to quality, compared to the former 50/50 ratio.

A significant backlash ensued, as parents of children in therapy feared a drop in service quality and availability as a result of the bidding reform.

News service Lännen Media reported on Friday that the chair of Kela's group of parliamentary trustees, MP Sari Sarkomaa, and member trustee MP Outi Alanko-Kahiluoto both criticised Kela's new public tendering policy. They maintain that Kela has failed in its evaluation of tenders for medical rehabilitation services.

One week ago, Finland's Market Court overturned Kela's tendering decisions on disabled person's interpreter services, finding that the unit in charge of managing the process had violated public procurement guidelines.

Many trusted therapists rejected

Almost 38,000 customers received therapy as part of their intensive medical rehabilitation in Finland in 2016, the last year for which figures are available. Intensive medical rehabilitation is primarily offered to people with a diagnosed illness or impairment that makes it difficult for them to participate in daily activities.

People who have been judged by a doctor to be entitled to these rehabilitation services can independently select therapy providers, as long as they have a service agreement with Kela. Physical, occupational and speech therapy, as well as neuropsychological rehabilitation are some of the many therapy options available.

Because of the new tender criteria, however, many providers that previously had agreements with Kela have now been dropped.

A press release from the Children's Physiotherapy Association last week said that 140 specialist physiotherapists that had previously provided intensive medical rehabilitation to children with special needs will no longer be on Kela's list of suppliers as of 1 January 2019.

"Breaking up a therapy relationship can have dire consequences for years. It takes time before a new provider can establish trust and build an interactive relationship. This doesn't apply to just the professionals, as it is even more true for the customers," said the Association's chair Reetta Tuomisto.

Kela announced last week that it would be contacting each of its customers whose service providers will change at the turn of the year due to the new tendering process.


          Amnesty Finland hands over petition to stop Afghan deportations      Cache   Translate Page      

The Finnish branch of human rights group Amnesty International has submitted a petition signed by nearly 18,000 people to the interior ministry, demanding that Finland stop deporting people to Afghanistan.

The petition was handed over to Interior Minister Kai Mykkänen on Tuesday morning in Helsinki, according to the human rights group. Shortly before that, just outside the ministry about 50-60 of the group's supporters held a demonstration, demanding that Finland halt deportations to Afghanistan.

Demonstrators, standing in the grey, damp autumn weather, held signs and placards printed with statements in Finnish such as "Afghanistan is not safe" and "Why don't you believe experts?"

The demonstrators said Finland should not repatriate rejected asylum seekers to Afghanistan until the country is deemed safe and respects human rights.

According to Amnesty Finland individuals who are sent from Europe to Afghanistan face risks from ongoing conflict as well as serious human rights abuses.

Finland's Afghanistan repatriation policies

Last spring it was reported that Finland anticipated that the number of involuntary returns would double this year.

Finnish police carried out 556 deportations in 2017, while a total of 2,600 people were repatriated that year.

In September the Finnish Immigration Service (Migri) announced that due to the large number of internal refugees in the Afghan capital of Kabul, it would no longer require families with children to attempt to relocate there to escape persecution. Repatriations of healthy, working-age men and childless couples would however continue on a case-by-case basis as usual, the agency said.

Earlier this month, Migri announced it was opening a new detention unit for rejected asylum seekers. At the time, Migri officials said asylum seekers can be detained if there are reasonable grounds to suspect they may go into hiding to stop the police from deporting them. In addition, asylum seekers may be kept in custody if their identities are unclear.

Late last summer, several politicians from Finland's opposition parties demanded that an independent investigation into Migri's decision-making process, after a string of forced returns to war-torn Afghanistan caused a public reprimand from Amnesty International.

Shortly after that, Mykkänen announced the ministry would commission a comprehensive independent study of Migri's mechanisms.

          Tuesday's papers: Politicians vow to tackle warming, MEPs take on golden passports, new Vitamin D doses      Cache   Translate Page      

Daily Helsingin Sanomat continues coverage of Finnish reaction to Monday's IPCC climate report, which calls for a "rapid and far-reaching" global response to climate change, as "warming of 1.5°C or higher increases the risk associated with long-lasting or irreversible changes". The paper called the leaders of each of the parliamentary political parties in Finland to ask them what they plan to do.

HS notes that each of the decision-makers they contacted admitted that the onus was now on them. Finns Party chair Jussi Halla-aho said "The solution is in the hands of our country's leaders, not the regular people."

His polar opposite on Finland's political scale, Left Alliance chair Li Andersson agreed. She told the paper that although everyone's individual effort is important, "the IPCC message today speaks of the need for sizeable emissions reductions and measures that will extend to many areas, so we need to make political decisions without delay."

But the common ground ended there, because while Andersson says Finland should relinquish its reliance on peat and stop harvesting the trees in its forests, Halla-aho does not agree.

Acting Green Party chair Maria Ohisalo says she has the impression that Finnish people have long been frustrated with Finnish politicians dragging their feet on climate issues. She and Social Democrat Chair Antti Rinne agree that all is not lost, however, for as Rinne says, "We can make it happen, if we can find the political will." As a start, he proposes introducing incentives to get Finland's 200,000 homes that are still heated with oil to switch to geothermal.

Swedish People's Party chair Anna-Maja Henriksson tells the paper that "It is not necessary to eat meat every day", and Christian Democrat head Sari Essayah advises that everyone adopt a more "moderate lifestyle" when it comes to consumption. Centre-right National Coalition Party chair Petteri Orpo says it is now on Finnish decision-makers to make decisions that will assist people to make the right decisions, like making low-emission cars more readily available.

Prime Minister and Centre Party chair Juha Sipilä announced on Monday that he would be asking each of the parliamentary parties to a round-table discussion on the issue in November. "The goal is to forge a common understanding on Finland's climate change policy that is as broad as possible," he wrote in his blog, the paper reports.

MEPs demand common passport-issuing standards

The tabloid Iltalehti continues with a story from the Uutissuomalainen news service on so-called "golden passports", and a new poll that indicates that all 13 of Finland's Europarliamentarians want to crack down on the practice.

While over a dozen countries in Europe – the UK included – currently issue permanent residency "golden visas" to individuals who invest money in their country, some EU states like Malta and Cyprus go one step further and also offer citizenship.

The Finnish MEPs say that golden passports often lead to corruption and money laundering in Europe, and should therefore be monitored closely under joint game rules, such as more transparent criteria for application. The EU politicians from Finland say that the EU cannot address the problem adequately at present because each country is free to arrange the process independently.

Green Party MEP Heidi Hautala tells IL that the European Commission is currently considering a directive to give banks more authority in such matters, but Finland is at present one of the EU countries most opposed to the idea. She says Finland should "take a good look in the mirror", the tabloid reports.

Preliminary investigation into a suspected international money laundering scheme earlier this month found that the main suspect in the case, a Russian-born owner of the Airiston Helmi real estate firm, was in possession of a golden passport from Malta.

New Vitamin D recommendation for infants

And then to the Joensuu-based newspaper Karjalainen that carries an article on new Vitamin D supplement recommendations for children under one year of age in Finland.

A new EU directive on Vitamin D content in infant formula has led to an update of Finland's Vitamin D recommendations for babies in Finland, with different supplement doses determined on a case-by-case basis in future, depending on whether the infant is breastfed, drinks formula or ingests other vitamin-fortified products or formulas.

For babies that are entirely breastfed, the recommended supplement will be 10 micrograms per day. But for babies that also drink infant formula, this daily recommended dose will drop to 6 or 2 micrograms per day, depending on the amount of formula or other products in use.

Karjalainen writes that Vitamin D supplement products that comply with the new recommendations will be available in Finland's stores yet this autumn.


          A broad campaign calls for legislation on human rights due diligence      Cache   Translate Page      

Helsinki (08.10.2018 - Heikki Jokinen) More than 70 companies, trade unions and NGO's are campaigning for a Finnish law on mandatory human rights due diligence. The campaign called Ykkösketjuun is coordinated by the Finnish industry watchdog Finnwatch.

The new law, based on the UN Guiding principles on business and human rights, would oblige companies to map their human rights impacts and to prevent possible negative impacts.

Many companies in Finland already take serious note of the human rights impact of their businesses and Finnish human rights legislation is considered to be at a relatively high level.

However, these companies often work in countries where the state does not guarantee the implementation of internationally recognised human rights. The rights, for example, of children, employees and communities can be infringed on in the global supply chains.

Hazard admits childhood ambition to play for Real

DF-Xinhua Report

Chelsea's Belgium international forward Eden Hazard has again raised doubts over his future by admitting his childhood dream was to play for Real Madrid.

   Hazard was allegedly a target for Real Madrid over the summer following his outstanding performances in the World Cup finals in Russia. The 27-year-old has two years left on his contract with Chelsea and the club are thought to be prepared to offer him a new deal of around 300,000 pounds (391,000 US dollars) a week.

   Speaking in an interview published in the UK press on Monday, Hazard insisted he was happy at Chelsea and had no intention of trying to force through a move to Madrid as his former teammate Thibaut Courtois did this summer.

   "I don't want that. I want what's good for me, but I want what's good for the club because the club has given me everything. I don't want to say: 'Yes, I am signing a new contract' and then in the end I don't end up signing. So I will see," he commented.

   Hazard openly admitted he wasn't certain what was the right decision to make: "Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January," he said.

   The forward believes he is in the best form of his life and admitted there is one club he has always wanted to play for: Real Madrid.

   "I am playing good football at the moment. Real Madrid is the best club in the world. I don't want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club. We will see. I don't want to talk about this every day. I don't have time but we will talk about my future soon. I think so," he concluded.

   Real Madrid failed to sign a replacement after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus over the summer and currently lie fourth in the Spanish Liga Santander after a run of four games without scoring a goal and which have led to rumors that unless results improve in the near future, coach Julen Lopetegui, who was only appointed in June, could be sacked.

PM tries to secure Nat’l consensus on climate change

National

DF-Xinhua Report

Prime Minister Juha Sipilä said on Monday that a round table discussion of all political parties should be arranged to discuss the climate policy, after the international climate panel (IPCC) made the recommendation to restrict the climate warming to one and half degrees Celsius instead of two.

The requirements envisaged in the IPCC report were a further blow to the Finnish plans to create a primarily wood based biofuel industry in the country.

Sipilä said, however, that the need to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide opens a huge market for new technological solutions.

"Finland has a chance to become a major power in combating climate change," he said.

Sipilä compared the climate policy with security and foreign policies. He underlined that nonpartisan decisions would be necessary.

Professor Markku Ollikainen, chairman of the Finnish national climate panel, said on Monday Finland should reconsider the idea to start producing fuel from the Finnish forests.

He told a Finnish language newspaper Helsingin Sanomat that the biofuels made of wood would increase the carbon load four times more than what fossil fuels do. "Finland must rethink its whole land usage policies," he said.

Ollikainen pointed out that increased industrial use of wood would reduce the Finnish carbon sink.

"We have three ways of reducing carbon emissions from land. We can stop claiming new arable land from the forests, and we should plant forests to unoccupied land. One alternative is to create economic incentives to forest owners so that more carbon is tied down to forests," Ollikainen said.

Earlier on Monday Kimmo Tiilikainen, the minister of the environment said on national TV, Yle that Finland would remain at "the two degrees aim" for the time being.

He said that Finland alone cannot attain anything, but will push the EU to make more progress. "The EU must also show strength in international talks," Tiilikainen said.

 Tiilikainen's claim was criticized by Sanna Marin, vice chairman of the main opposition party in the parliament Suomen Sosialidemokraattinen Puolue (Social Democratic Party of Finland-SDP).

Marin told national broadcaster Yle that Finland should rather take immediate steps. She added that the temperature increase would be more serious in the Arctic areas and here the 1.5 degrees impacts like 5 degrees.

Female music teacher convicted of sexual abuse of pupils

National

DF-Xinhua Report

A teacher was sentenced to nearly five years imprisonment by the Supreme Court on Monday for sexual abuse of her pupils.

A female music teacher at a school in Vantaa pursued sexual acts with two boys between 2012 and 2016. The boys were at the time between 12 and 15, and the teacher around 40.

The situation was uncovered when one of the boys talked to the police.

The teacher maintained in the court process that the acts had taken place in mutual understanding. She admitted, however, that she had abused the children.

The punishment range for sexual abuse of children in Finland is from one to ten years. A local court had first given under four years, and appeals court raised the prison term to five years and the supreme court, in a 3-against-2, gave 4 years 8 months which acknowledged that the teacher had helped the investigation.

The sentence covered also aggravated misuse of the position of authority of the teacher.

Local media were split in the publication of the name of the convicted teacher. National broadcaster Yle withheld the name to protect the boys, while a leading Finnish Language newspaper Helsingin Sanomat published her name.

The Supreme Court released the name of the teacher in public, but did not publish part of the sentence to protect the boys.

High time to say ‘no’ to fascism, racism, disparity

DF Editor´s Desk

The Turku Court of Appeal on September 28 upheld a ban imposed by a lower court on Suomen Vastarintaliike (Finnish Resistance Movement), the Finnish chapter of the neo-Nazi group Nordic Resistance Movement (PVL).

We welcome this historic verdict which will not only dissuade the fascist or extremist radical forces to be formed and operate in this country but also have a long-term positive impact on the social wellbeing. When we examine the background and activities of Suomen Vastarintaliike, we don’t find them to go with the Finnish values, culture, and norms. The Finns are highly acclaimed as a peaceful and peace-loving nation across the globe. The appeal court’s ruling once again proves that Finland in no way will tolerate or allow any fascist, racist or indiscriminating activity to go on in the society.

The Nordic Resistance Movement was founded in Sweden in 1996 and branched out to the rest of the Nordic countries, i.e., Finland, Norway, Iceland, and Denmark.

The group triggered off a storm of debate, discussion, and condemnation in September 2016 following the death of a man being assaulted during a neo-Nazi rally at the Helsinki Central Railway Station. People from all professions and social strata voiced strong protests against the incident. On 24 September 2016, more than 15,000 people gathered in Helsinki and condemned racism and violence.

In October 2017, a Finnish member of the organisation was sentenced to two years of imprisonment for his involvement in the incident of assault that took place on September 2016.

And in November 2017, the Pirkanmaa District Court banned the activities of the Nordic Resistance Movement (PVL) as well as its regional chapters and the PVL-linked Pohjoinen Perinne or Nordic Tradition group. The PVL appealed against the ruling but the Turku Court of Appeal overruled the appeal. The appeal court’s decision in effect makes it illegal for the Nordic Resistance Movement to mobilise, demonstrate or propagandise in Finland.

As we said, the ban on the PVL also spells wide-scale positive consequences for the Finnish society, including encouragement to progressive forces as well as the people in general to continue to work for instituting human rights and equal rights, as well as protecting the interests of minority groups including the immigrants.

Political ideology and strategy also have a vital role to play in routing racism, fascism, and disparity from all sectors of the society. The appeal court’s verdict is very important at this time, when far-right political groups have emerged as vital political actors in many a European country in the recent past. We have seen the advancement of the rightwing populist party, Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), in Germany, the populist Five Star Movement in Italy, and, finally, the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats (SD) in Sweden.

The timing of the verdict is also significant as Finland is now preparing to hold the next parliamentary elections in April 2019. The Finns should consider the issue seriously before casting their votes so that parties with an attitude or advocating an ideology of disparity, racism or fascism do not get a chance to influence the country’s politics and policy-making. To support a fanatic force will but push the country backwards. Only people have the power to decide the outcome through their choice made in the national elections.

This is high time for the Finns to say no to all negative forces and ideologies and to safeguard their country’s image as a land of equal rights, peace, and wellbeing.

The Swedish People’s Party is concerned about the effects of a proposed real estate tax reform, particularly on the tax burden of people living in single-family homes.

“The necessary impact assessments have not been conducted when setting out to reform the real estate tax. We cannot accept the risk that people living on small pensions have to move out of their owner-occupied homes as a consequence of a sharp increase in real estate tax rates,” says Thomas Blomqvist, the chairperson of the Swedish People’s Parliamentary Group.

“The saddest part of the whole ordeal is that bystanders are the ones suffering,” he laments in a blog posted on Puheenvuoro on Sunday.

Foreign tourist inflow in August ebbs 2.6%

DF Report

The number of nights spent by foreign tourists at Finnish accommodation establishments decreased in August 2018, said the Statistics Finland.

About 754,000 nights were recorded at the establishments as spent by foreign visitors, which was 2.6 per cent lower than that in the previous month of August.

In contrast, the number of overnight stays in the month at accommodation establishments by domestic tourists increased by 2.5 per cent year-on-year to almost 1.6 million.

Overall, 2.3 million overnight stays by tourists were recorded at Finnish accommodation establishments, posting a 0.8 per cent rise than that in August 2017.

The data have been collected from accommodation establishments with at least 20 beds or caravan pitches with electricity connection.

Finnish accommodation establishments recorded close on 24,000 overnight stays for Estonian tourists, marking a y-o-y rise of 12.4 per cent, and 27,000 overnight stays, spelling a 10.0 per cent y-o-y rise for Spanish visitors, in August last.

The top three source countries continued to go strong; only the order changed. Russians were the largest group of foreign tourists with nearly 91,000 overnight stays. The number was almost the same as one year before, declining by just 0.1 per cent. Germans were the second biggest group with nearly 89,000 overnight stays recorded for them at Finnish accommodation establishments, which, however, was 7.2 per cent lower year-on-year. Swedes comprised the third largest group with close on 75,000 nights spent, posting a 2.6 per cent decline from that in August last year.

Chinese tourists took the fourth place with almost 42,000 overnight stays recorded that means a 1.6 per cent spike from the number of overnight stays by them in August 2017.

Nights spent by visitors from almost all the top source countries decreased in August. The biggest decline came from the Great Britain and the United States. The overnight stays by British visitors dropped by 16.1 per cent and by US visitors by 11.1 per cent year-on-year. Slightly over 34,000 overnight stays were recorded for British visitors and 36,000 for the visitors from the US. Despite the decline, they were still the biggest source countries of tourists after China this August.

IPCC for rapid changes to fight against global warming

DF-Xinhua Report

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an international body assessing the science related to climate change, on Monday urged "rapid and far-reaching" changes in all aspects of the entire world to fight against global warming after adopting a special report on global warming.

   The 48th IPCC session lasted for five days to Friday in South Korea's western port city of Incheon, bringing together about 570 representatives from over 130 countries and international organizations.

   It approved the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius, which IPCC Chair Lee Hoesung described as one of the most important reports to curb the global warming during a press conference at Songdo Convensia in Incheon.

   The special report will become a key scientific input into the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Poland in December.

   The report highlighted a number of climate change impacts that could be avoided by limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels in comparison to 2 degrees Celsius or higher.

   According to the report, global sea level rise would be 10 cm lower with the global warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius than the one with 2 degrees Celsius. The likelihood of an Arctic Ocean free of sea ice in summer would be once a century with the global warming 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared with at least once a decade with 2 degrees Celsius.

   "One of the key messages that comes out very strongly from this report is that we are already seeing the consequences of 1 degree Celsius of global warming through more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice, among other changes," said Zhai Panmao, co-chair of IPCC Working Group .

   The special report examined pathways available to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, what it would take to achieve them and what the consequences could be.

   "This report gives policymakers and practitioners the information they need to make decisions that tackle climate change while considering local context and people's needs. The next few years are probably the most important in our history," said Debra Roberts, co-chair of IPCC Working Group .

   The report found that limiting the warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius would require "rapid and far-reaching" transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport and cities. The global net human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide would need to fall by about 45 percent from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching "net zero" around 2050.

   "Limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius is possible within the laws of chemistry and physics, but doing so would require unprecedented changes," said Jim Skea, co-chair of IPCC Working Group .

   The special report was requested by 195 nations when they adopted the Paris Agreement in December 2015 at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) to the UNFCCC.

   The Paris Agreement aimed to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by "holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels."

   The special report would become a key scientific basis for the COP24 to the UNFCCC, scheduled for December in Poland, according to the IPCC.

   The IPCC was established by the United Nations Environment Program and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide policymakers with regular scientific assessments about climate change, its implications and potential future risks, as well as to put forward adaptation and mitigation strategies.

   It assesses thousands of scientific papers published each year, not conducting its own research. This year's special report was prepared by 91 authors and review editors.

Nordhaus, Romer of USA share Nobel Prize in Economics

DF-Xinhua Report by He Miao

The 2018 Nobel Prize in Economics, or officially the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, was awarded Monday jointly to William Nordhaus and Paul Romer.

   Nordhaus was rewarded "for integrating climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis" and Romer "for integrating technological innovations into long-run macroeconomic analysis," according to an official statement released by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

   The two American economists' findings have significantly broadened the scope of economic analysis by constructing models that explain how the market economy interacts with nature and knowledge, the statement added.

   "I got two phones calls this morning, didn't answer any of them, thought they were spam," Romer told a press conference on site, "I didn't expect the Prize at all."

   Responding to press question about this year's prize and climate change, Romer said, "Optimism helps to motivate people. The current situation is that many think it's too costly, so they deny the existence of climate change, I hope the Prize will help people to see through some policy changes we can make substantial progress without giving up chances of sustainable growth. I hope to see policy shifts and necessary progresses been taken."

   "It's entirely possible for human to produce less carbon," Romer said while emphasizing that he was "a conditional optimist", that "if we start doing the right thing." 

   Previous macroeconomic research had emphasized technological innovation as the primary driver of economic growth, but had not modelled how economic decisions and market conditions determine the creation of new technologies. Paul Romer solved this problem by demonstrating how economic forces govern the willingness of firms to produce new ideas and innovations, according to the statement.

   Romer's solution, published in 1990, laid the foundation of what is now called "endogenous growth theory". The theory is both conceptual and practical, as it explains how ideas are different to other goods and require specific conditions to thrive in a market. Romer's theory has generated vast amounts of new research into the regulations and policies that encourage new ideas and long-term prosperity. The statement added.

   Nordhaus decided to work on this topic in the 1970s, as scientists had become increasingly worried about the combustion of fossil fuel resulting in a warmer climate.

   In the mid-1990s, he became the first person to create an integrated assessment model, i.e. a quantitative model that describes the global interplay between the economy and the climate.

   His model integrates theories and empirical results from physics, chemistry and economics, which is now widely spread and is used to simulate how the economy and the climate co-evolve. It is used to examine the consequences of climate policy interventions, for example carbon taxes, according to the statement.

   "This year's Laureates do not deliver conclusive answers, but their findings have brought us considerably closer to answering the question of how we can achieve sustained and sustainable global economic growth," said the statement.

   William Nordhaus, born 1941 in the USA, is Sterling Professor of Economics at Yale University, USA. Paul Romer, born 1955 in the USA, is Professor at NYU Stern School of Business, USA.

   This year's prize is 9 million Swedish krona, to be shared by the two laureates.

Russia interested in restoring links with EU: FM

Europe

DF-Xinhua Report

Russia needs to restore its relations with the European Union (EU) and believes that many governments want the same, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.

   "There are already quite a few governments that understand the abnormal and unhealthy nature of the current situation," Lavrov said at a press conference after talks with his Italian counterpart Enzo Moavero Milanesi.

   According to Lavrov, these governments "are not being guided by ideological considerations, not by Euro-Atlantic solidarity, but by the fundamental, deep-rooted interests of European countries."

   He said that one such government is the new Italian administration of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, which took office on June 1, a position Russia highly appreciates.

   The EU imposed a range of economic sanctions on Russia over its annexation of Crimea, formerly part of Ukraine, in 2014 and its alleged role in the conflict in the south of the country.

   Moscow hopes that finally the interests of the European people will prevail, in particular because European businesses have suffered losses as a result of the sanctions and don't want to tolerate this situation any longer, Lavrov said.

   This is confirmed by the upward trend in trade turnover between Russia and the EU over the past two years, he said.

   Milanesi agreed that the EU and Russian needed to restore their relations.

   "We are interested in finding a way out of this situation. This is our aim, but we understand that this is not a simple process," he said at the press conference, speaking through an interpreter.

   Milanesi said that Italy is interested in playing an active role in restoring Russia-EU ties. Furthermore, both see eye-to-eye on a number of global issues, including the need to fight terrorism and drug trafficking, as well as in energy.

Bolsonaro, Haddad head for run-off

DF-Xinhua Report

Brazil's general elections wrapped up late Sunday and the official final results showed that the right-wing Jair Bolsonaro and his left-leaning rival Fernando Haddad are headed for a run-off later this month.

   Brazil's Superior Electoral Court (TSE) said that the final results, available shortly before 9 p.m. local time (0000 GMT Monday), confirmed that voters will be heading to the polls again for the second round of the presidential election.

   The final tally showed Bolsonaro, from the Social Liberal Party, won 46.1 percent of the votes, while Haddad, from the Workers' Party, had 29.1 percent.

   The elections were "clean, serene, transparent and agile," said Rosa Weber, president of the TSE.

   "The elections took place peacefully and the will of the Brazilian people was comprehensively respected," she added.

   Voter turnout was at 79.67 percent, or about 112 million out of 147 million eligible voters, leaving the abstention rate at 20.33 percent (or more than 28 million people). Voting is mandatory in Brazil.

   Some 91.22 percent of the votes cast were valid, while 2.67 percent of the ballots were left blank and 6.11 percent nullified.

   It requires over 50 percent of the valid votes for a presidential candidate to claim an outright win in the first round of the election. If none of the candidates has secured an absolute majority, a second round will be held.

   On Sunday, Brazilians voted to choose a new president and vice president, 27 governors and vice governors, 54 senators, 513 federal representatives and 1,059 state representatives.

   The TSE said the elections on Sunday ran smoothly throughout the country, with few incidents.

   All Brazilian presidential candidates have already voted in the first round of the general elections.

   Bolsonaro voted on Sunday morning in Rio, accompanied by one of his sons, who is also a politician and is running for the Senate.

   As he left the voting site, the candidate told reporters that he was still not fully healed from the attack he suffered last month.

   Bolsonaro was stabbed in the gut on Sept. 6, as he campaigned in Minas Gerais state. The attacker was immediately arrested and put into jail. Preliminary investigations showed the attacker was a lone wolf, acting out of his own volition.

   Bolsonaro underwent two surgeries and is currently using a colostomy bag. He may have to undergo a third surgery in the near future to take it off.

   In his speech, the candidate reinforced the far-right discourse and made a reference to Venezuela. Though Brazil never actually had a socialist government, Bolsonaro has been using the neighboring country, which is facing severe economic and political problems, as a dire example of what Brazil could become if his rivals win the election.

   "We have had the support of important sectors of society: businessmen, merchants, evangelical leaders, good people in Brazil who want to move away from socialism and do not want to flirt with the Venezuelan regime," he said.

   "People who want a liberal economy, with less State presence, and who want to defend family values. People are realizing that Brazil cannot continue in the direction of socialism; we do not want Brazil to become like Venezuela in the future," he said.

   Haddad voted on Sunday in Sao Paulo, accompanied by his wife, Ana Estela.

   After casting his ballots, Haddad, who replaced iconic former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on the PT ticket, told reporters that he had confidence in his presence in the second round of elections and criticized leading candidate Bolsonaro.

   Haddad said that in the second round, Bolsonaro will not be able to "hide behind his social networks."

   Bolsonaro is somewhat of a social media phenomenon, with millions of followers comparing him to a Messiah, especially after he was stabbed during a campaign event in early September.

   Even before the attack, Bolsonaro had declared he would not attend any debates, after some poor performances. After the attack, he was in the hospital and later recovering at home. Despite not going to debates, he gave several interviews and made a number of Facebook livestreams.

   "He has great difficulty in debates," Haddad said. "He would have great difficulties to debate in the second round. He has no team, he has no project."

   The Sustainability Network Party's Marina Silva voted in her home state of Acre, accompanied by her husband and sister. After voting, she talked about her campaign and criticized the excessive polarization of Brazilian politics, represented by the candidacies of Bolsonaro and Haddad, the two top-ranked candidates in polls.

   "Brazil is going through a very serious political, economic, social crisis, and a crisis of values as well. The two parties which are now engaging in this polarization are not an alternative for the Brazilian society," she said.

   Brazilian Social Democracy Party (PSDB)'s Geraldo Alckmin voted in Sao Paulo, where he served as governor. He was accompanied by his wife Lu Alckmin and political allies.

   The Socialism and Freedom Party's Guilherme Boulos also voted in Sao Paulo and asked electors not to vote out of hate.

   "We cannot fool around with the country almost falling from a cliff. No more dictatorship," he said. "Do not put hate in the ballot. Put in your dreams and hopes."

          Finnish prime minister calls all-party summit on climate policy      Cache   Translate Page      

Prime Minister Juha Sipilä says that in light of the landmark UN climate report issued on Monday, it is clear that Finland must do more – and faster – to help limit climate change.

In a blog post on Monday afternoon, the Centre Party premier says that the measures needed to lower emissions will not all be easy for Finland.

For that reason, Sipilä says he will invite representatives of all the parties in Parliament to a roundtable discussion in November. It is to be led by the Finnish Climate Panel, an independent, interdisciplinary think tank of top-level Finnish scholars. The aim, he says, is to reach the broadest possible parliamentarian consensus on Finland’s climate policy.

“In order for the decision-making to be sufficiently long-term, it is essential to carry on a dialogue over government and opposition [party] lines,” Sipilä wrote.

Sipilä’s three-party centre-right government’s legislative term ends next spring.

Sipilä praised the climate decisions made by his government, but added that “these measures will not however suffice”. He pointed out that the need to lower emissions is creating a vast market for new technological solutions. This, he said, could offer an opportunity for Finland to emerge as a “superpower” in the fight against climate change.

IPCC: Time is running out

According to the report by the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (or IPCC), avoiding global climate chaos will require an unprecedented transformation of society and the world economy. It warns that time is running out to avert disaster. Earth's surface has already warmed by one degree Celsius – and is on track toward an unliveable rise of 3 or 4 degrees unless urgent action is taken, warns the IPCC.

At current emissions levels, we could pass the one and a half degree marker as early as 2030, it predicts. The massive report calls for radical cuts in energy consumption and a rapid shift away from fossil fuels.

Environment minister: “No possibility” of stricter target

Earlier in the day, another Centre Party cabinet member, Minister of the Environment, Energy and Housing Kimmo Tiilikainen, appeared to downplay the report’s findings. Speaking at a climate seminar in Helsinki, Tiilikainen said that Finland would not be able to step up emissions reductions in the near future.

He said that Finland’s emissions cuts would still be aimed at the old target of limiting warming to two degrees Celsius rather than 1.5 degrees as strongly urged by the IPCC report. It says this could only succeed if worldwide net emissions can be brought to zero by 2050.

Asked whether Finland will adjust its target for reductions by 2030, Tiilikainen replied: “There is no possibility of that in the coming months. It’s a longer-term goal. There must be solutions. It doesn’t help to just throw a target out there,” he said.

Tiilikainen – whose Centre Party traditionally draws much of its support from farmers and forest-owners – also brushed off any suggestion that logging should be curtailed due to forests’ crucial role in absorbing carbon, as suggested by Finnish Climate Panel chair Markku Ollikainen, who also spoke at the seminar.


          United Brotherhood gang members suspected of extortion, drug and gun offences      Cache   Translate Page      

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) suspects two dozen men linked to an organised crime group called the United Brotherhood of a wide range of serious crimes. They range from aggravated drug and weapons offences to extortion. Twelve men are now in custody. The investigation is focused on the Turku and Salo areas of south-west Finland.

The NBI has teamed up with police in south-west Finland and Helsinki on the probe. It began in February with suspicions that United Brotherhood was selling drugs in the Turku area, which then extended to parallel operations in the capital region.

Tell-tale notes

Police have so far confiscated about three kilos of amphetamines, 5,500 Subutex tablets and smaller amounts of other drugs. One kilo of amphetamines was seized based on slips of paper found during a search of the gang’s Tuusula headquarters, which said exactly where and when it would be delivered and picked up in Helsinki, according to police.

Extortion over trumped-up debts

The preliminary investigation, authorities found that a Helsinki gang member had bought a significant number of guns for the group to use and sell. He is suspected of storing 10 firearms and a significant amount of ammunition in the garage of a Vantaa apartment building. They included submachine guns, shotguns and rifles. Altogether 30 weapons have been seized, including seven from the Tuusula clubhouse.

          Police say string of car fires unrelated to each other - or Sweden      Cache   Translate Page      

The five cars apparently set ablaze in Espoo and Helsinki over the weekend are not likely related to each other, according to local police.

Five automobiles were found burning in the Espoo neighbourhood of Matinkylä early Sunday morning, which western Uusimaa police are investigating as aggravated vandalism.

The cars in Matinkylä were separated by a few hundred metres. The local emergency centre received an alert about the incident around 4:00 am on Sunday.

Overnight Sunday more cars were found burning in Vantaa and Helsinki. The car fire in Vantaa, appeared to be caused by a technical fault in the vehicle, which spread to cars parked next to it, according to local rescue officials.

However, Sunday night’s car fire in Tattarisuo, a north-eastern neighbourhood of Helsinki, is suspected to have been intentionally set, according to Helsinki police investigator Anne Hietala.

“Right now the case is being investigated as vandalism and it appears that fire was deliberately set,” Hietala said, saying that there was no more information about the incident.

Police suggest copycats may be responsible

Western Uusimaa police head investigator Teemu Värtinen said that at this stage in the probe there is nothing to indicate that the fires were set by the same individual, saying that media reports about the fires may have prompted others to carry out the crimes.

“These cases often happen in clusters, because news coverage fuels more of them,” Värtinen said.

Police officials also dismissed suspicions that the recent series of car fires in southern Finland were related in some way to similar incidents in Sweden, saying that the nature and motives behind the car fires in Sweden were different.

Police said that there are no suspects in the Espoo car fires at this stage of the investigation.

Most U.S. young people prefer to stay single: Survey

DF-Xinhua Report

Most American millennials ages 18-25 are making the choice to live life solo intentionally, according to a USA Today report on Monday, citing a new survey by the dating app Tinder.

   The survey found 72 percent of more than 1,000 single American youths Tinder questioned "have made a conscious decision" to stay single for a period of time. 

   Moreover, as high as 81 percent of them see being single as beneficial in ways beyond just their love lives, the survey found.

   More than half said other young single people were more open to new experiences and that they view themselves as more fun due to their single status, according to the survey.

   "Historically, people blindly set out to cross off items on their young-adult-to-do list: Go to school. Work hard. Find a partner. Get married. Have children. Encourage your children to do the same. Rinse and repeat," said Darcy Sterling, a licensed clinical social worker and Tinder's "relationship expert.

   "This trend for Millennials is a 'paradigm shift'," she told the USA Today, noting that Millennials invest more time in careers, social lives and personal time when single.

Facebook releases smart video chat speakers amid user privacy concern

DF-Xinhua Report

U.S. social media giant Facebook Monday unveiled a pair of artificial intelligence-powered smart video chat devices, Portal and Portal +, which are designed to connect people and feel like being in the same room.

   Facebook said the new video communication speakers with tablet-size screens for the home can dramatically change the way people keep in touch and their built-in AI technology makes video calling easier and more like hanging out.

   The debut of the Facebook-brand-bearing electronic gadgets represents the social network's first bold entry into the fray in a competition of consumer hardware with other internet giants such as Amazon and Google, which launched their smart speakers years ago.

   The Portal, which is equipped with a 10-inch 1280x800 display, can let users video chat with their families and friends over Facebook Messenger, while the Portal + has a 15-inch 1920x1080 pivoting display.

   Facebook said the two speakers are powered by AI as well as smart camera and sound technology that let users have a better, more convenience and hands-free experience. The speaker's Smart Camera can sense the movement and action, and automatically pans and zooms to keep everyone in view.

   While the two Facebook-branded hardware makes consumers' home smarter and better connected with family members, there is growing concern about user privacy that could arise from internet-related technology, especially after Facebook has been questioned about its privacy policy since a data breach scandal earlier this year.

   Facebook has been extensively challenged about its security measures in protecting users' sensitive data since a British data mining firm Cambridge Analytica was accused of illegally accessing the data of 87 million Facebook users without their knowledge.

   Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was summoned to a hearing in U.S. Congress in April to explain the firm's privacy policies.

   Last month, Facebook reported vulnerabilities in its account login mechanism that could affect more than 90 million users, who risked having their private information including names and passwords accessed by hackers.

Country sees highly warm September this year

DF Report

September this year was unusually warm and, in some places, exceptionally so, with the exception of Lapland, according to the statistics maintained by the Finnish Meteorological Institute.

The average temperature in September varied between approximately 14 degrees Celsius in southern areas and just under eight degrees Celsius in the north of Finnish Lapland.

The average temperature for the month was one to three degrees higher than usual. The   month has similar temperatures every 10 to 30 years on an average, a bit more often in Lapland, said a press release issued by the FMI on Monday.

In terms of temperature, the month was divided into two parts. The beginning and middle of the month were clearly warmer than usual, whereas the end of the month was colder.

The month’s highest temperature, 26.1°C, was recorded in Pyynpää Rauma on September 8.

On September 26 and 27, a storm dubbed Kuisma hit the country, causing quite a bit of damage and power cuts, especially in the country’s southern and middle areas. The strongest average wind speed measured in sea areas was 26.q metres per second recorded in Kylmäpihlaja, Rauma.

The month’s lowest temperature, minus 9.5 °C, was recorded in Muonio Village on September 29.

September was also unusually rainy in most of the country. Especially in the area stretching from south Karelia to northern Lapland, the month’s overall amount of precipitation was exceptionally high in some places, meaning that this happens once every 10 to 30 years.

The first snow recorded by the Met Office fell on September 25 in Kilpisjärvi Village. The snow-depth that morning was two centimetres.

Brexit in spotlight as UK parliament reopens

Europe

DF-Xinhua Report

Britain should hold its nerve as negotiations with Brussels on its departure from the European Union reach the final stretch, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab told the House of Commons which reopens Tuesday.

   But former Brexit Secretary David Davis warned the ruling Conservative Party risked losing the next general election unless it ditched the so-called Chequers plan, the blueprint for a new trade deal favored by prime minister Theresa May.

   Raab, updating MPs after they returned to Westminster following the party conference season, reiterated Britain's insistence that there will be no hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, one of the biggest hurdles still facing negotiators on both sides.

   Also ruling out a second referendum, Raab said Britain's White Paper proposals, known as Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit blueprint, "are the best way of ensuring there is continued frictionless trade in goods after Britain leaves the EU". It also fulfills the commitment to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, he added.

   "These negotiations were always bound to be tough in the final stretch. That is all the more reason why we should hold our nerve, stay resolute and focused, and I remain confident that we will reach a deal this autumn," said Raab, adding an agreement was in the best interests of both Britain and the other 27 EU member states.

   Raab said the government is engaging with the EU on alternative proposals that preserve the integrity of the UK.

   "They will be in line with the commitments we made back in December, including the commitment that no new regulatory barriers should be created between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK unless the Northern Ireland Executive and the Assembly agree," added the secretary.

   "We continue to engage constructively with the EU, we continue to press our case," said Raab.

   EU negotiators effectively want Northern Ireland to stay within their customs union and single market as a way or avoiding a hard border with the Irish Republic which will remain as an EU member Keir Starmer, shadow Brexit secretary for the main opposition Labor Party said Raab's statement would have been much better coming from Prime Minister May.

   Referring to a recent meeting of EU leaders where May's blueprint was rejected, Starmer added: "It should be up to Theresa May to let the House (of Commons) know what went wrong in the Salzburg negotiations.

   That meeting in Austria prompted an angry response from May, saying EU leaders had shown Britain a lack of respect.

   He warned that a vague deal would be like asking Britain to jump into the unknown, adding the Labor would not support that.

   "No government has the right to plunge the country into chaos because of its own failing," said Starmer.

   The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) politician Nigel Dodds, said his party would not accept any deal that separates Northern Ireland from the rest of  Britain. May's minority government relies on support from the 10 DUP MPs to give her a majority in the British parliament.  

   In another warning to May's government, the former Brexit Secretary David Davis warned her that the electoral consequences for the Conservative party could be dire if the final deal did not respect the decision to leave the EU.

   In a letter to Conservative MPs, Davis said:  "If we stay on our current trajectory, we will go into the next election with the government having delivered none of the benefits of Brexit, with the country having been reduced to a rule-taker from Brussels."

   Advocating a so-called Canada-style trade deal between Britain and the EU, Davis said: "No 10's stated position that there is only a binary choice between her Chequers plan and no deal is not correct. A third way does exist."

   Davis quit his top ministerial job in July saying he could not support May's Brexit blueprint, agreed at a behind-closed-doors meetings at Chequers, the prime minister's country retreat.

   Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who quit alongside Davis over May's Brexit blueprint, has already issued a "chuck Chequers" plea to the government, claiming it would mean Britain remaining as a vassal state of the EU.

Pharmacy, R-Kioski robbed in Oulu

DF Report

A pharmacy and an R-Kioski in Oulu were robbed in two separate incidents on Monday evening, the police said.

Two masked robbers stormed into Merikoski Pharmacy (Merikosken Apteekki) in the city’s Latokartanontie area at about 5:10 pm and took away cash from the store, said a police press release.

One of the robbers was seen dressed in black hoodie, black trousers, sunglass and black gloves and the second one was wearing black jacket, black shoes, black trousers and sunglass. The pair fled the scene immediately.

The police said they took a small amount of money from the pharmacy and no one was hurt during the robbery.

In the second incident, a man entered Höyhtyä R-kioski in the city’s Latokartanontie area at about 7:05 pm and robbed the shopkeeper of cash at knife point.

He also managed to escape after the robbery and no one was hurt in the incident, said the police press release.

Volkswagen sales fall due to introduction of new exhaust systems rules

DF-Xinhua Report

German carmaker Volkswagen's sales fell in September because of the introduction of new exhaust systems regulations, the Wolfsburg-based company announced on Tuesday.

   The Volkswagen brand delivered 485,000 vehicles in total to customers in September, marking a decline of 18.3 percent compared to the same period last year. In Europe and domestic market, delivers were down by an annual rate of 42.6 percent and 47.1 percent respectively.

   According to Volkswagen, the development was "chiefly due" to the effects of the new Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) which became legally binding across the European Union (EU) in September.

   On Monday, the rival German Daimler Group similarly revealed a 8.2 percent slump in September sales which it blamed on logistical difficulties surrounding the WLTP certification process.

   Earlier, technological changes required to fulfil the WLTP standards already led Volkswagen to issue a profit warning for 2018. The company emphasized, however, that "outstanding figures" since the start of the year had helped soften the decline in sales experienced in September.

   In the year to date, the Volkswagen brand has handed over some 4,622,900 vehicles to customers throughout the world. Sales consequently rose 2.9 percent during the first nine months compared to the same period last year.

   "The year to date has been the most successful ever for Volkswagen. Developments in September were a setback, but we had been expecting this following the records in the summer," a statement by Juergen Stackmann, Volkswagen board member for sales, read.

   Stackmann noted that his company had now obtained approval for high-volume variants of all 14 Volkswagen brand models but would continue to be affected by the transition to the WLTP test procedure throughout October.

   He predicted that the ongoing changeover would be "virtually completed" by the end of the year. "This is why we expect a return to our old strength. From November, we will be ready for the end-of-year sprint in Europe."

MP candidate among 8 killed in Afghan suicide bombing

DF-Xinhua Report

Eight people, including a parliamentary candidate, were killed and 11 others wounded in a terrorist attack in Lashkar Gah city, capital of southern province of Helmand on Tuesday, a local official said.

   The parliamentary and district councils elections are expected to be held later this month on Oct. 20 and the attack was a latest in election-related violence.

   Saleh Mohammad Achikzai sustained serious injuries when the suicide bomber struck his election campaign office building in Police District 1 of the city, Omar Zwak, a provincial government spokesman, said in a statement.

   "Achikzai succumbed to his injuries after arrival in a surgical hospital in the city," he said.

   No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far. Helmand, notorious for poppy growing, is also a known Taliban stronghold.

   The death has brought to nine the number of candidates losing their lives mostly in terrorist attacks, before the polls.

   More than 2,500 candidates from 33 out of 34 provinces (excluding Ghazni) will stand for the parliament's 249 seats.

   Nearly 9 million registered voters, including 3 million women, will cast their ballots to elect the lawmakers for a five-year term while they will also vote to elect members of the district councils.

1 trillion liters of water lost through leaks in Britain every year

Europe

DF-Xinhua Report

Three billion liters of drinking water are leaked every day in Britain, a committee of Members of Parliament (MPs) said in a parliamentary report Tuesday.

   It adds up to more than a trillion liters of water being lost every year, the figures showed.

   The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee has called for water meters in every home to be made compulsory as a way of saving water.

   In its report on the regulation of the water industry, the politicians said water shortages of the type experienced in the summer 2018 will become more frequent and drought resilience will require increasing the supply of water alongside reducing demand.

   The committee found that a shocking three billion liters of water are leaked every day and believes that water industry targets to reduce leakage by 15 percent by 2025 are not ambitious enough.

   Committee chair Neil Parish said: "Water leaks affect the environment, as the more is leaked, the more must be taken from our rivers and other natural sources. It also sends a poor message to the public about the value of water when people are being encouraged to save water. Water companies should be leading by example. We are calling for the amount of water lost through leaks to be halved by 2040, ten years earlier than a current target."

   The committee also heard there was strong evidence that water metering helps to reduce water use and detect when leaks are occurring. Currently, only water companies in designated water-stressed regions of Britain can make metering compulsory.

   Parish added: "We need to move beyond a regional approach to water metering, because there is a national need to conserve water."

   He said the committee has called on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to allow all water companies the power to implement compulsory metering.

   The report has recommended the government to amend regulations by the end of 2019 to allow all water companies to implement compulsory metering, using smart meters.

Niinistö for urgent efforts to earn climate agreement goals

DF Report

President Sauli Niinistö on Tuesday emphasized to speed up efforts to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the Arctic Biodiversity Congress in Rovaniemi, the President also pointed out that the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published on Monday contained a very clear message to the policymakers.

“As we all know, the IPCC just yesterday (Monday) published its latest special report on global warming. It had a very clear message to policymakers. We urgently need to enhance and speed up our efforts to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement,” said Niinistö.

He underscored the need of direct interaction with scientists to make the most advanced knowledge accessible and understandable to policymakers.

He also said that the Arctic is not isolated from global developments. In addition to biodiversity, both of these lessons also apply to climate change.

“This is particularly relevant for the Arctic. As the IPCC report points out, the Arctic region is one of the most vulnerable systems on our planet, if and when global warming continues. And on the other hand, the melting of the sea ice and other changes in the Arctic region accelerate climate change on the global scale. I have said this before: if we lose the Arctic, we lose the globe,” said the President.

The main focus of the Paris Agreement and the latest IPCC report is on reducing CO2 emissions, and rightly so.

“CO2 with its long-term impact is the biggest contributor to global warming. In cutting down those emissions, we all need to do more, and more quickly – as communities and as individuals,” said Niinistö.

He said the IPCC report also shows there are other factors that should be addressed at the same time.

Black carbon is particularly relevant for the fate of the Arctic sea ice. When black carbon falls on the white ice, it immediately accelerates the melting. But its absence will have an equally immediate impact to the contrary. Cutting down black carbon emissions is the quickest way to slow down the rapid changes now occurring in the Arctic.

“As a very concrete proposal, we would like to see the Arctic states, on the highest political level, commit to reducing black carbon emissions. Reducing flaring in oil and gas production, switching from heavy fuels to LNG in ship engines, upgrading old-fashioned power plants, and preventing wildfires,” said the President.

The four-day Arctic Biodiversity Congress began on Tuesday consists of panel discussions, scientific seminars and the most recent research findings where about 450 experts on Arctic affairs are taking part.

Viruses in blood lead to digestive problems: study

DF-Xinhua Report

Viruses such as West Nile and Zika that target the nervous system in the brain and spinal cord also can kill neurons in the guts of mice, disrupting bowel movement and causing intestinal blockages, U.S. researchers have found.

   Other viruses that infect neurons also may cause the same symptoms, the researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis said.

   The researchers at the university who study mice infected with West Nile virus noticed that the intestines of some of the infected mice were packed with waste higher up and empty farther down, as if they had a blockage.

   "We actually noticed this long ago, but we ignored it because it wasn't the focus of our research at the time," said West Nile expert Michael S. Diamond, a professor of Medicine and the study's co-senior author.

   This time, the researchers dug in, and found that not only West Nile virus but its cousins Zika, Powassan and Kunjin viruses caused the intestines to expand and slowed down transit through the gut.

   Further investigation showed that West Nile virus, when injected into a mouse's foot, travels through the bloodstream and infects neurons in the intestinal wall. These neurons coordinate muscle contractions to move waste smoothly through the gut. Once infected, the neurons attract the attention of immune cells, which attack the viruses and kill the neurons in the process.

   "Any virus that has a propensity to target neurons could cause this kind of damage," said Diamond.

   Though West Nile and related viruses are not very common in the United States, there are many other viruses that are more widespread, such as enteroviruses and herpesviruses, that also may be able to target specific neurons in the wall of the intestine and injure them."

   If it is the case, such widespread viruses may provide a new target in the prevention or treatment of painful digestive issues.

   "Many of the viruses that might target the gut nervous system cause mild, self-limiting infections, and there's never been reason to develop a vaccine for them," Diamond said. "But if you knew that some particular viruses were causing this serious and common problem, you might be more apt to try to develop a vaccine."

   The infected mice's digestive tracts gradually recovered over an eight-week time span. But when the researchers challenged the mice with an unrelated virus or an immune stimulant, the bowel problems promptly returned.

   This pattern echoed the one seen in people, who cycle through bouts of gastrointestinal distress and recovery.

   The findings were published Oct. 4 in the journal Cell.

Key disease-resistant gene spotted in wheat

DF Report

A team of researchers have identified Yr15, a broad-spectrum disease-resistant gene derived from wild emmer wheat, the ancestor of durum (pasta) wheat, and analysed it.

Identification of the Yr15 gene facilitates the invention of a durable solution for controlling yellow rust, a major threat to food security for millions of people, believes the international group of researchers led by Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke), the Institute of Biotechnology at the University of Helsinki, and the University of Haifa.

Yellow rust is a devastating fungal disease threatening much of global wheat production. The problem has been increasing with climate change, said a press release issued by Luke.

Wheat is the most cultivated food crop globally, but more than five million tons of wheat harvest valued at around one billion USD are estimated to be lost annually to yellow rust, affecting food security and affordability for millions of people.

The international collaborative study involving about 30 researchers at 14 institutions in eight countries unlocks interesting opportunities for breeding more disease-resistant wheat varieties.

“Aaron Aaronsohn discovered wild wheat in 1906, and believed it would hold the key to breeding disease- and stress-resistant crops. With the work on Yr15, Aaronsohn’s vision is bearing fruit,” said Prof Alan Schulman of Luke.

“Crop’s wild relatives, like wild emmer wheat, are a great reservoir of useful genes and need conservation. Combined with a genome sequence – which became available this year – rapid advances in breeding are now possible,” said Schulman.

Although new disease-resistant genes are frequently discovered from various sources, fungi rapidly evolve to overcome them, rendering the majority of the world wheat production susceptible to epidemics. However, Yr15 has been found to be remarkably stable over several decades.

“We now understand why Yr15 is so robust – its structure is highly unusual for a disease-resistance gene. The project showed, though, that related genes are present in many plants, opening the door to widespread use,” Schulman added.

The results of the study ‘Cloning of the wheat Yr15 resistance gene’ sheds light on the plant tandem kinase-pseudokinase family have been published in the September 2018 issue of Nature Communications.

87 films compete for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar

DF-Xinhua Report

A total of 87 films, including three Chinese-language films, are competing in the Foreign Language Film category of the 91st Academy Awards, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Monday.

   The number is down slightly from last year's record 92 submissions. Malawi and Niger are the first-time entrants in the Foreign Language Film category.

   The action comedy film "Hidden Man" was selected as the Chinese entry of the mainland for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars.

   Directed by Jiang Wen and starring Jiang Wen, Eddie Peng, Liao Fan, Zhou Yun and Xu Qing, "Hidden Man" is an adaptation of Chinese writer Zhang Beihai's novel "Xia Yin" ("The Reclusive Hero").

   The military action film "Operation Red Sea" was submitted in the category by Hong Kong, China.

Revamped trails widen hiking scope in Rovaniemi

DF Report by Natalia Nikolaeva

Fall is a popular hiking season in Rovaniemi when nature is full of beautiful autumn colours. The city has a large number of hiking trails of various lengths and levels of difficulty. The city has recently renewed some of the trails and guideposts just in time for the season, while some of the trails will be refurbished next year.

The Daily Finland asked Kari Lukkarinen, a forestry engineer based in Rovaniemi, about his favourite hiking places that everyone should try out.

1. Ounasvaara nature trail and Ounasvaara winter walking routes located on the Ounasvaara Hill:

Lukkarinen said, “In my opinion the most popular trail is the Ounasvaara nature trail. We have repaired it this summer. For example, we have added signs, wooden walkways, and so on. We will also add guide maps next to the path. I think now it is safe to walk there and there is no danger of being lost. We have also renovated the Ounasvaara winter walking routes. We have added a lot of new signs and maps. In winter it is a very popular walking trail. Both routes are also located near the city.”

2. Korkalovaara nature trail on the Korkalo Hill:

This trail is about 3.6km west off the city centre and is marked for the tranquillity of a secluded forest while offering the convenience of a close by urban centre. The 3.35km trail goes through dry forests, mires, bogs, and swamps and has a nice camping area with a campfire site.

“The trail is currently being repaired. And it will also be ready soon,” said Lukkarinen.

3. Koivusaari nature trail:

Another popular nature trail is Koivusaari, about 2.3km away from Rovaniemi towards Sodankylä. “If you like to listen to and watch small birds and see how the sheep graze, then you should go to the Koivusaari nature trail,” advised Lukkarinen.

Koivusaari is a rather short but a very exciting route. It goes around a small island where sheep can be observed grazing in the summer. The trail also leads to a floating bird watching tower. The trial will be improved next year.

4. Arctic Circle hiking area:

Lukkarinen also mentioned the Arctic Circle hiking area that can be reached by driving about 20km along the highway 4 towards Sodankylä. The area has plenty of different trails like the Barrier-free nature trail (1.5km), Vianaapa mire trail (7km) and Kivalonaapa meadow culture trail (1.3km) which can be accessed from Vikaköngäs and Vaattunkiköngäs parking areas.

          Epic Acquires Easy Anti-Cheat Company For Fortnite      Cache   Translate Page      

Epic Games is strongly against cheating in Fortnite, the company's immensely popular battle royale game, and now the studio is putting its money where its mouth is. Epic has acquired Kamu, a start-up company based in Finland best known for Easy Anti-Cheat software. Epic is already using this product, but Kamu promises this move will better support "the live management of player satisfaction, community building, and game integrity." 

Kamu's software is currently serving more than 80 games and is installed by over 100 million PC players globally. For now, it looks like that will continue. However, with Epic now at the helm, it remains to be seen how that could change. 

This acquisition also puts Epic's foot in the Finland market. In their press release, Kamu explains "Epic’s new presence in Helsinki will serve as a base for recruiting technology, engine, and online service developers." For now, you can play Fortnite knowing the battle against cheaters wages on. 

Fortnite just kicked off its darkly themed sixth season, you can read all about the new additions here. Also, Epic recently released a bundle for the Nintendo Switch to entice fans, both new and old.

It's great that Epic is taking a clear step to curb cheating in Fortnite. There's nothing more frustrating than knowing my win was stolen, and nothing makes me rage quit faster.  But really, I'm interested in seeing what non-Fortnite details come out of this. Is Epic Games recruiting in Finland? Will Fortnite force other games to dump their anti-cheating software or raise the price? It will be interesting to see what happens.

World War II involved tens of millions of soldiers and cost sixty million lives—an average of twenty-seven thousand a day. For thirty-five years, Max Hastings has researched and written about different aspects of the war. Now, for the first time, he gives us a magnificent, single-volume history of the entire war.  Through his strikingly detailed stories of everyday people—of soldiers, sailors and airmen; British housewives and Indian peasants; SS killers and the citizens of Leningrad, some of whom resorted to cannibalism during the two-year siege; Japanese suicide pilots and American carrier crews—Hastings provides a singularly intimate portrait of the world at war. He simultaneously traces the major developments—Hitler’s refusal to retreat from the Soviet Union until it was too late; Stalin’s ruthlessness in using his greater population to wear down the German army; Churchill’s leadership in the dark days of 1940 and 1941; Roosevelt’s steady hand before and after the United States entered the war—and puts them in real human context. Hastings also illuminates some of the darker and less explored regions under the war’s penumbra, including the conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland, during which the Finns fiercely and surprisingly resisted Stalin’s invading Red Army; and the Bengal famine in 1943 and 1944, when at least one million people died in what turned out to be, in Nehru’s words, “the final epitaph of British rule” in India.  Remarkably informed and wide-ranging, Inferno is both elegantly written and cogently argued. Above all, it is a new and essential understanding of one of the greatest and bloodiest events of the twentieth century.

https://yle.fi/uutiset/osasto/news/amnesty_finland_hands_over_petition_to_stop_afghan_deportations/10447178

The petition was handed over to Interior Minister Kai Mykkänen on Tuesday morning in Helsinki, according to the human rights group. Shortly before that, just outside the ministry about 50-60 of the group's supporters held a demonstration, demanding that Finland halt deportations to Afghanistan.

Demonstrators, standing in the grey, damp autumn weather, held signs and placards printed with statements in Finnish such as "Afghanistan is not safe" and "Why don't you believe experts?"

The demonstrators said Finland should not repatriate rejected asylum seekers to Afghanistan until the country is deemed safe and respects human rights.

According to Amnesty Finland individuals who are sent from Europe to Afghanistan face risks from ongoing conflict as well as serious human rights abuses.

Last spring it was reported that Finland anticipated that the number of involuntary returns would double this year.

Finnish police carried out 556 deportations in 2017, while a total of 2,600 people were repatriated that year.

In September the Finnish Immigration Service (Migri) announced that due to the large number of internal refugees in the Afghan capital of Kabul, it would no longer require families with children to attempt to relocate there to escape persecution. Repatriations of healthy, working-age men and childless couples would however continue on a case-by-case basis as usual, the agency said.

Earlier this month, Migri announced it was opening a new detention unit for rejected asylum seekers. At the time, Migri officials said asylum seekers can be detained if there are reasonable grounds to suspect they may go into hiding to stop the police from deporting them. In addition, asylum seekers may be kept in custody if their identities are unclear.

Late last summer, several politicians from Finland's opposition parties demanded that an independent investigation into Migri's decision-making process, after a string of forced returns to war-torn Afghanistan caused a public reprimand from Amnesty International.

Shortly after that, Mykkänen announced the ministry would commission a comprehensive independent study of Migri's mechanisms.

          WHY THE EURO WON´T REPLACE THE DOLLAR / BARRON´S MAGAZINE      Cache   Translate Page      

Why the Euro Won’t Replace the Dollar

By Matthew C. Klein

Why the Euro Won’t Replace the Dollar
Photo: Joel Arbaje



Europe has a dream that the euro will overtake the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. It’s an old dream, but it’s based on a misconception.

In his last State of the Union speech as president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker pledged “to strengthen the international role of the euro.” Yet the dollar’s preponderance in foreign reserves and in international trade comes from specific properties of the U.S. financial system that most European governments do not want to emulate. Global use of the euro is incompatible with the other priorities of European governments, particularly sovereign debt reduction.

European complaints about the dollar are not new. The seeds were planted shortly after the D-Day landings, when the Allies agreed at the Bretton Woods Conference to create a postwar monetary regime of fixed exchange rates centered on the dollar. This dollar-based payments system gave Europeans good reason to hold safe dollar-denominated assets they could use to settle debts or pay for imports in emergencies. Those reserve assets lubricated international trade, but they were also debts Americans owed to the rest of the world.

In the 1950s and 1960s, those debts funded growing financial outflows from the U.S. The U.S. had effectively become the world’s bank, exploiting its overvalued exchange rate to buy long-term risky assets abroad with funds raised from short-term “deposits” sold to foreigners. The French particularly resented what they saw as an “exorbitant privilege” that allowed Americans to buy European assets on the cheap. Europeans eventually responded by converting their dollars into gold bullion at the official U.S. fixed price of $35 an ounce.

The Nixon administration was unwilling to defend an arbitrary exchange rate by stifling American domestic spending or selling all the Treasury’s bullion. Instead, it officially broke the dollar’s link to gold  in 1971. The supposed privilege had actually been a burden: Foreigners accumulated reserves at the expense of Americans borrowing more and more from the rest of the world. By 1971, those debts had become unpayable—and rather than honor its obligations in gold, the U.S. government effectively defaulted.
This did not end foreign demand for U.S. financial assets—much to the annoyance of the architects of the euro. The “One Market, One Money” report, published in 1990 by the European Commission, complained that “permanent asymmetries regarding the burden of adjustment have persisted…because of the special international significance of the dollar.” They hoped their new single currency “could finally be a decisive building block for a more stable multi-polar monetary regime.”

The report’s authors failed to appreciate that the dollar’s “international significance” requires Americans to satisfy foreign demand for dollar-denominated fixed income by increasing their indebtedness. This was demonstrated most clearly in the 2000s. Many emerging markets were traumatized by the crises of the late 1990s and were determined to avoid a repeat. At the same time, oil exporters were enjoying a windfall thanks to soaring prices and wanted to save in preparation for the eventual reversal. The combined effect was a large increase in the demand for safe assets in hard currencies.

While the U.S. federal government consistently ran budget deficits, the growth in public debt was far too small to satisfy foreign savers. Financial innovations, most notably “private label” mortgage bonds and their derivatives, were therefore needed to bridge the gap between supply and demand. This turned out to be a disaster for both the mortgage borrowers and many of the end investors, but it was the only way to reconcile foreigners’ seemingly insatiable need to hold U.S. bonds with America’s relatively restrictive fiscal policy.

This unfortunate episode shows why the euro is unlikely to achieve equivalent status to the dollar: Beyond the likely unwillingness of the European private sector to go on a borrowing binge so soon after the financial crisis, there is already an acute shortage of safe euro-denominated assets available. Moreover, this shortage is being made worse by policy.

In 2007, the governments of the euro area had about €4.8 trillion ($5.6 trillion) in debt securities outstanding. Back then, all of that debt was considered equally “safe” by regulators, monetary policy makers, and—crucially—by investors.

The total face value of euro-area government bonds has since grown to nearly €8 trillion, but that number needs to be adjusted for credit risk, since the new European consensus is that countries unable to raise funds in the markets will have to default on their obligations. Less than €2 trillion of euro-area sovereign bond debt is issued by AAA-rated borrowers (Germany, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands), and even adding in the relatively safe countries of Austria, Finland, and France only brings the total up to €4.1 trillion. Moreover, the European Central Bank has bought roughly €1.1 trillion of those bonds, shrinking the supply available for investors still further.

This shortage is being exacerbated by the obsessions of policy makers. A new joint proposal to reform the euro area’s budget rules from France’s Council of Economic Analysis and Germany’s Council of Economic Experts, for example, explicitly says that “a major aim of our proposed rule is to reduce public debt.” The German government has already been paying down its debt for several years, even though an anonymous former International Monetary Fund economist convincingly argues that German government debt “could reasonably—and quite sustainably—approach 240 percent of GDP,” given the country’s high level of domestic savings.

There is no inherent reason why the euro could not become a credible alternative to the dollar for international payments and reserves. All the Europeans would need to do is replace their national sovereign debts with a single government bond market explicitly backed by the ECB and unconstrained by any fiscal rules. Until they are prepared to do that, however, Juncker’s ambition will remain nothing more than a dream.

          The Hobo Guide to Wild Camping in Europe      Cache   Translate Page      

I’m camping in Europe at the moment. Pitching my tent at rest stops, in the mountains and inconspicuously behind bushes on private land. I’m camping because there are some day hikes I can’t bear to leave after only a few hours. I want to wake up in the fog and sleep amongst all the creatures that explore the land at night. I’m also doing it to stretch the little money I flew to Europe with.

Each country has its own laws when it comes to wild camping. Here’s a list, but please do your own research if you’re really concerned.

Wild camping is legal in: Sweden, Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Russia, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine, Scotland

Wild camping is a bit of a grey area in: France, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech, Hungary, Moldova, Netherlands, Romania, Serbia, Switzerland

Wild camping is totally illegal in: Italy, Aldorra, Belgium, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain (they’re really complicated), England, Wales

However, if you’re setting up shop just to rest your head for the night, camping is generally permissible. Pitch at dark and leave in the morning and nobody’s going to bat an eyelid, especially if you’re out of sight. How many times do you drive on a highway or pass a mountain and look for a tent? Worst case scenario: plead ignorance. You’re a tourist.

Here are my packing essentials:

1. A tent

If you’re heading over in summer, you can probably get away with a festival tent, especially if you’ve got some cash in the bank to splurge on accommodation when there’s a stormy night. I use a lightweight two-person Vango Bravo 200, because I need something I can carry on my back with the rest of my stuff that can also accommodate a mate, should I meet one on my journey.

If you’re wild camping, especially in places where wild camping is considered illegal or a grey area, maybe invest in something a little more inconspicuous than the blue one I’ve gone for. You can spot that baby from a mile away.

          Wine tasting for 5 friends      Cache   Translate Page      
I have a wine collection of Martha Stewart selected wines. I'm inviting 4 yoga friends for a casual fun wine tasting. I doubt any of us know much about this and the food that goes with although I have read articles on the subject. I thought I'd have two white, two red and maybe one rose along with three cheeses like blue cheese, cheddar and my favorite Brie, adding crackers or bread cubes or anything else to balance out the food and wine such as endive with crab salad. Someone suggested vegie pizza. Will you offer other suggestions? Another question is how to serve wine and food for such a small group. I thought we could sit at my dining room table. Then what? Pass bottles around one by one to taste and then pass the food around as well when they decide which one they want. Alternatively, I have an Alvar Aalto tea cart from Finland and wondered how I could use it to compliment the food and wine. I tried searching but didn't come up with anything. Maybe there are some posts with good advice that you can recommend. Now I'm going to make a list of the wines I have. Perhaps that would determine what food items would work well for this event. WE are a group of ladies in our 70's that want to have fun.

          It's Monday! Fall Reading Progress and What I'm Reading This Week      Cache   Translate Page      
Last fall I decided to start reading my hardcover fiction at night, and now I've burned through about half of what I had on the shelf. I've been concentrating on the books that have been with me the longest, and now there are no hardcovers on my shelf that are more than 5 years old. I'm really, really happy about that; it means that if we have to move again any time soon, I won't be carting as much old weight around. Except for one or two, those books are all sold or donated, on to new readers. It's nice to actually see room opening up on the shelves!

I would anticipate being more or less done with the hardcovers towards the end of next year if I keep going and maybe after that I'll pick another category. Like ARCs, and work from the oldest again.

I finished Lion's Honey, by David Grossman (short and sweet) and DNF'd The Symmetry Teacher; I also finished Red Notice, by Bill Browder, last week and All My Puny Sorrows, by Miriam Toews.

Now I'm on book three of the Patrick Melrose series, Some Hope. Bad News took place almost entirely in Patrick's head; now we're jumping from character to character like in Never Mind. We'll see where it goes. We still have Edward St. Aubyn's crystalline writing so that's a good start.

Bedside I'm reading My Cat Yugoslavia, by Pajtim Statovici,
alternately about an Albanian woman getting married and an ethnic Albanian Muslim who grew up in Finland and his rather complicated social life. I like it a lot, and unlike some of the things I read this year that I felt pressured to rush through, I'm taking my time with this one and just letting it wash over.

I haven't picked a new nonfiction book but it may end up being Sargent's Women, by Donna M. Lucey, about four of the women whose portraits John Singer Sargent painted. He is probably my favorite painter.

And in audioland I'm still enjoying Peter Ackroyd's history of gay London, Queer City. I have a few hours to go on this entertaining and enlightening story.

          U.S. Air Lease Corporation plans to buy 384 airplanes by 2024      Cache   Translate Page      

U.S. Air Lease Corporation plans to buy 384 airplanes by 2024

DF-Xinhua Report

U.S. Air Lease Corporation (ALC) said Tuesday that it is committed to buy a total of 384 new airplanes through 2024 to expand its leasing fleet.

   The company just leased a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner one day ago to Air Tahiti Nui, a French airline based in Papeete, Tahiti of the French Polynesia territory in the South Pacific.

   The 787-9 Dreamliner will be the first longest-range Boeing airplane leased by the Tahitian airline from the ALC, which was announced by the U.S. air leasing company on Monday.

   In an updated report about its activity for the third quarter of 2018, the ALC said its fleet is composed of 268 owned aircraft and 60 managed aircraft as of Sept. 30 this year, and it has taken delivery of seven new aircraft for this quarter, including two Boeing 787-9 jets and one Airbus A350-900 airplane.  

   Marc Baer, ALC executive vice president, said at the delivery ceremony Monday that the capabilities of the 787-9 Dreamliner help enhance Air Tahiti Nui's commercial operations and will significantly increase the efficiency of its future fleet.

   The Tahitian airline is planning to use the longest-range Dreamliner to replace its aging A340s airplanes and connect its home base in the South Pacific with world capitals in Europe, North America and Asia, including cities such as Paris, Tokyo and Los Angeles.

   The airline announced the lease of two 787s from the ALC in 2015.

   Founded in 2010, the California-based ALC purchases new commercial aircraft through direct orders from Boeing, Airbus and other major aircraft manufacturers in the world, and leases them to its airline customers across the globe.

UN chief says had "excellent cooperation" with Haley

DF-Xinhua Report

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed on Tuesday his "deep appreciation for the excellent cooperation and support" of U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who earlier handed in her resignation at the White House.

   The secretary-general's spokesman, Stephan Dujarric, also said Haley and Guterres "had a very productive and strong working relationship during her tenure as United States' permanent representative to the United Nations.

   "They worked hard to promote constructive ties between the United Nations and the United States to show the value of the United Nations," Dujarric said. "The secretary-general looks forward to continuing to work with Ambassador Haley until the end of her tenure and of course with her replacement."

   The spokesman said the secretary-general, en route to Indonesia, had not received notice of her resignation and didn't expect to receive it until closer to when she plans to step down, at the end of the year, probably about the time her successor is announced.

   Guterres plans to meet in Bali, Indonesia with leaders of the Association of South-East Asian Nations at their Leaders Gathering, then with officials of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group at their annual meeting.

   On Friday he is expected to visit Palu, Sulawesi, the spokesman said.

   The death toll from the recent earthquake and tsunami in Sulawesi has topped 2,000 with more than 10,000 injured and hundreds missing, officials said.

Helsinki Airport follows Int´l standard departure times

DF Report

Finavia, the company operates country´s airport will start using departure times that follow the international standards at Helsinki Airport on Wednesday.

The announced flight departure time will, in the future, be the time when a plane starts moving from the bridge or the outside spot, said a Finavia press release on Tuesday.

With the change, the departure times and their punctuality information announced on all Finavia’s digital channels will become more specific because, in the future, the departure status will be based on the same measurable phase of the plane turn process as the schedule.

“Until now, the departure time of the planes leaving from Helsinki Airport has been the time the plane leaves the runway. Going forward, the flights’ scheduled and realised departure times will be announced as so-called off-block times, which means the time the plane left the bridge or the outside spot,” said Heini Noronen-Juhola, Vice President of Finavia.

The change in the flight departure status at Helsinki Airport is a part of Finavia’s larger digital programme.

As a part of the digital programme, the phases of the plane turn around process will be specified, which the change implemented in this initiative is also related to. The programme will also improve access to flight information from the flight information interface.

The departure time for planes leaving from Finavia’s provincial airports will continue to be the time when the plane takes off from the runway.

FM discharged from hospital, still on sick leave

National

DF Report

Foreign Minister Timo Soini has been discharged from hospital, said a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday.

The minister was admitted to the hospital on October 6 for the treatment of a severe erysipelas skin infection in his foot.

The minister, however, will be on sick leave, which likely to be continued until October 30, the press release added.

The Minister had to cancel his visit to Iceland scheduled from October 7 due to the sudden illness.

Earlier, on September 21, Soini survived a no-confidence motion in parliament. The motion was put forward by four opposition parties accusing Soini of publicly expressing his anti-abortion attitude blurring the international image of Finland.

Soini currently represents the populist Sininen Tulevaisuus (Blue Reform) party, a break-away fraction of the populist Perussuomalaiset (Finns Party).

          Focke Wulf Fw 189A-1      Cache   Translate Page      
Here are some images of HPH Models 1/32 scale Focke Wulf Fw 189A-1This aircraft served in Finland 1942 - 1943. From Wikipedia"The Focke-Wulf Fw 189 Uhu ("Eagle Owl") is a German twin-engine, twin-boom, three-seat tactical reconnaissance and army cooperation aircraft. It first flew in 1938 (Fw 189 V1), entered service in 1940 and was produced until mid-1944. In addition, Focke-Wulf used this airframe in response to a tender request by the RLM for a dedicated ground-attack airplane, and later submitted an armored version for trials. However, the Henschel Hs 129 was selected instead. In 1937, the German Ministry of Aviation issued a specification for a short-range, three-seat reconnaissance aircraft with a good allround view to support the German army in the field, replacing the Henschel Hs 126, which had just entered service. A power of about 850–900 hp (630–670 kW) was specified. The specification was issued to Arado and Focke-Wulf.[1] Arado's design, the Ar 198, which was initially the preferred option, was a relatively conventional single-engined high-wing monoplane with a glazed gondola under the fuselage. Focke-Wulf's chief designer Kurt Tank's design, the Fw 189, was a twin-boom design, powered by two Argus As 410 engines instead of with an expected single engine. As a "twin-boom" design like the earlier Dutch Fokker G.I from 1938, the Fw 189 used a central crew gondola for its crew accommodation, which for the Fw 189 would be designed with a heavily glazed and framed "stepless" cockpit forward section, which used no separate windscreen panels for the pilot (as with many German medium bombers from 1938 onwards). Blohm & Voss, however, proposed as a private venture something even more radical: chief designer Dr. Richard Vogt's unique asymmetric BV 141. Orders were placed for three prototypes, each of the Arado and Focke-Wulf designs, in April 1937.The Fw 189 was produced in large numbers, at the Focke-Wulf factory in Bremen, at the Bordeaux-Merignac aircraft factory (Avions Marcel Bloch's factory, which became Dassault Aviation after the war) in occupied France, then in the Aero Vodochody aircraft factory in Prague, occupied Czechoslovakia. Total production was 864 aircraft of all variants. Called the Fliegende Auge ("Flying Eye") of the German Army, the Fw 189 was used extensively on the Eastern Front with great success. It was nicknamed "Rama" ("frame" in the Russian, Ukrainian and Polish languages) by Soviet forces, referring to its distinctive tailboom and stabilizer shapes, giving it the characteristic quadrangular appearance. Despite its low speed and fragile looks, the Fw 189's manoeuvrability made it a difficult target for attacking Soviet fighters. When attacked, the Fw 189 was often able to out-turn attacking fighters by simply flying in a tight circle into which enemy fighters could not follow. One Fw 189 survives today. Its story starts on May 4, 1943 when Fw 189 V7+1H (Werk Nr. 2100), of 1./Nahaufklärungsgruppe 10, with V7 originally the Geschwaderkennung code for Heeres-Aufklärungsgruppe 32 based at Pontsalenjoki (due east of Kuusamo, and within the south-central area of modern Russia's Republic of Karelia) took off on a mission to photograph the Loukhi-3 airbase from an altitude of 6,000 m (20,000 ft), then to continue north along the Murmansk-Leningrad railway. Approximately 31 minutes after taking off, V7+1H was attacked by Lend-Lease-acquired Soviet Hawker Hurricane fighters. The aircraft dived to escape the fighters, but owing to damage already suffered, could not pull out in time, and it struck the treetops. The tail was torn off, and the crew nacelle left hanging upside down within the trees. The pilot, Lothar Mothes, survived but one crewman was killed in the crash and the third died from blood loss as a result of a severed leg. Incredibly, Mothes was able to survive two weeks in sub-zero temperatures, evading Soviet patrols while eating bark and grubs as he walked back to his base. Mothes spent the next nine months in a hospital recovering from severe frostbite before returning to the front line, eventually to fly another 100 missions. In 1991, the wreckage of V7+1H was found in the Russian forest where it had remained for 48 years. The aircraft was purchased by a group of British aircraft enthusiasts and was shipped to the UK, arriving in the town of Worthing, West Sussex in March 1992. The Focke Wulf 189 Restoration Society was formed to restore the aircraft to flying condition. Her former pilot, Lothar Mothes, met up again with his aircraft at the 1996 Biggin Hill Airshow. It was reported that this aircraft was acquired by Paul Allen’s Flying Heritage Collection. However, its current state is not publicly known.

          10 locuri frumoase in Romania unde te poti bucura de o vacanta de iarna reusita      Cache   Translate Page      
Cine spune ca trebuie sa depasesti granitele tarii pentru a avea parte de o vacanta de iarna reusita? Nu putini sunt cei care opteaza pentru destinatii din strainatate pentru ca sunt de parere ca numai in afara Romaniei privirea le poate fi incantata de peisaje care le taie rasuflarea, ca multitudinea obiectivelor turistice nu lasa loc plictiselii sau ca targuri de Craciun ca in Austria si Germania nu se mai gasesc niciunde. Astfel de conceptii ar trebui sa dispara din mentalul colectiv, caci in tara noastra exista extrem de multe locuri frumoase, unde poti avea parte de o vacanta minunata, in locuri care sa te poarte intr-o lume de poveste.

Si la noi in tara se organizeaza targuri de Craciun magnifice si, cu siguranta, ultimul lucru de care ne putem plange ar fi ca nu avem peisaje absolut splendide. Ne putem lauda cu atat de multe locuri care merita vizitate, incat nici macar nu le vom putea cuprinde pe toate intr-un singur articol. Si nu o spunem doar noi pentru a ne ridica in slavi tara, ci si strainii apreciaza locurile pe care le viziteaza ori de cate ori au ocazia. In repetate randuri, Romania s-a clasificat in topul destinatiilor internationale de iarna, in special cu Balea Lac, acesta fiind clasat chiar inaintea unor locuri din Austria sau Finlanda.

Trebuie sa ne redescoperim tara care are atat de multe de oferit, atat pentru iubitorii de aventura, cat si pentru cei care cauta liniste si sa petreaca, eventual, sarbatorile intr-un mod traditional.

          Comment on Revisionist History by Gavin Longmuir      Cache   Translate Page      
@ AVI -- getting a little way from the topic of Gladwell and adding to Hoover's assessment of Germany's intent to attack the USSR … here is a book with an interesting perspective on Germany/USSR that I came across while trying to understand the strange occurrences in Eastern Europe. (Who remembers these days that England declared war on democratic little Finland in WWII?) Viktor Suvorov: The Chief Culprit (Naval Institute Press, 2008). The style of the book seems stereotypically Russian -- detailed & repetitive. Suvorov advances the view that Stalin had for years been interested in provoking a widespread European war, in the Marxist expectation that Communist regimes would emerge out of the wreckage. The USSR/German deal to invade Poland was only an opportunistic late element in that scheme, and Stalin certainly intended to double-cross his temporary ally Hitler at some point. In 1941, the USSR was moving to attack the German forces in Poland, at the same time as the German forces were massing to attack USSR forces in Poland. USSR forces had left their defensive lines and moved men & equipment into highly exposed salients in preparation for attacking the Germans. Consequently, when the Germans attacked first, the USSR forces were not organized to resist, and were thrown into chaos, suffering massive initial losses. Suvorov's interpretation does suggest that, if the USSR had in fact struck first, the Germans would have been similarly exposed and over-run. Without the USSR's depth and lacking the USSR's arms production capacity and manpower, Soviet armies could well have pushed the Germans all the way across Europe into the sea at the English Channel long before the Western Allies would have been ready to invade -- and Europe post WWII would have been a rather different place.

          “I volti dei luoghi dell’accoglienza”. L’esperienza dei soci Murgia Enjoy a Riace, Camini e Stignano di Leonardo Losito – Presidente Murgia Enjoy      Cache   Translate Page      

Leggiamo sempre più spesso dei "luoghi dell'accoglienza" e, incuriositi da quanto letto, decidiamo di approfondire l'argomento visitando proprio quei luoghi nei quali porteremo il nostro piccolo contributo. Organizziamo così una specie di "mission umanitaria", ideiamo uno specifico contest per proporre la mostra fotografica "I sogni sono di tutti", prendiamo contatti con le varie Amministrazioni Comunali, le Pro Loco e le Cooperative, prepariamo la nostra attrezzatura per documentare i luoghi con il format "Per le vie del borgo", compriamo giocattoli e beni per i profughi e con ben otto patrocini partiamo alla volta di Camini, Riace e Stignano. I circa quattrocento chilometri che separano Bari da Riace regalano interessanti vedute sia sul Tirreno che sullo Jonio oltre alla visuale di diversi paesi e città. Una Calabria che sembra pian piano essersi risvegliata con Cosenza e Catanzaro che ormai sembrano città all'avanguardia. Giungiamo a Camini, paese di circa ottocento abitanti, che ormai è ora di pranzo e, ad attenderci, troviamo proprio il primo cittadino, Giuseppe Alfarano, che, entusiasta della nostra presenza e compreso il fine del nostro impegno, ci chiede subito di dargli del tu e di chiamarlo Pino, così come lo conoscono tutti. Nei giorni a seguire lo troviamo instancabilmente presente ovunque in paese; è il Sindaco che al momento della proclamazione a Sindaco ha innalzato la fascia tricolore riferendo pubblicamente che quella fascia è di ogni cittadino. Insieme a lui il giovane Presidente della Cooperativa Jungi Mundu, Rosario Zurzolo, anch'esso onnipresente nella vita del paese. Dopo le presentazioni e qualche informazione sui luoghi, i due ci conducono nell'alloggio che rappresenterà la "base associativa" della nostra "mission". Ci aspettiamo una specie di ostello o un ricovero spartano precedentemente utilizzato dai profughi e, invece, scopriamo il primo di tanti miracoli: due stanze ed un bagno con pietre a vista, travi in legno, frigo, aria condizionata, cabina doccia ed ogni confort. Ci viene spiegato che quell'alloggio è il frutto del lavoro degli extracomunitari impegnati in tutto il paese e che senza loro quelle due stanze, così come tanti altri immobili, sarebbero state destinate all'oblio del tempo così come siamo abituati a vedere in molti piccoli centri. Proponiamo la nostra mostra e, fra bambini ed adulti di ogni nazionalità, oltre alle autorità locali, in molti si fermano ad osservare quelle foto esposte. Alcuni apprezzano la foto di Bernice, figlia di Martin Luther King, altri l'immagine di un bambino con le braccia protese verso il cielo quasi a voler spiccare il volo verso la libertà, altri un vecchio tronco lavorato dall'acqua ed incastrato nella sabbia in riva al mare, altri ancora un cuore disegnato con petali di rose. Due giovani assessori, con forte senso di campanilismo, ci raccontano della vita in paese e delle dinamiche locali mentre la piazza, antistante il Municipio, si anima con musica e karaoke nel punto di incontro di cittadini, profughi e volontari ed il bar "Jungi Mundu" inizia a servire cene e pizze. Parlare di un bar risulta molto riduttivo perché, in realtà, l'attività risulta il fulcro del paese dove avvengono scambi culturali e racconti entusiasmanti per i quali noi stessi restiamo affascinati. Gli anziani del paese si sentono rispettati e ben accolgono gli extracomunitari riconoscendo in alcuni di loro dei grandi lavoratori. Il più anziano di loro, esprimendosi in dialetto calabrese, ci dice: "Le bocche sono sorelle", mentre un altro, con fierezza, dice: "Il sud si vede anche in questo".

Ci spostiamo con la nostra attrezzatura a Stignano dove a farci da guida è proprio il Sindaco, Francesco Candia, che, fin oltre l'ora di pranzo, ci dedica il suo tempo e che, con un invidiabile orgoglio e con una approfondita preparazione, ci racconta tutti i monumenti, compreso il Convento distante qualche chilometro dal paese. Con noi anche un giovanissimo e sempre sorridente profugo con il quale scambiamo qualche battuta e l'amicizia su Facebook. Ci racconta delle sue giornate, del suo desiderio di lavorare, di quanto, seppur appena maggiorenne, le esperienze vissute lo hanno portato a non poter vivere una vita da adolescente. Ci impegniamo subito a riferire della sua condizione ad un nostro socio che di lì a breve contatta il giovane per proporgli vitto, alloggio e alcune opportunità lavorative ad Altamura. Il Sindaco richiama la nostra attenzione sulla necessità di chiarire alcuni aspetti legati alla tanto discussa "moneta locale". Ci precisa che in tutta la zona ai profughi vengono consegnati i soldi necessari al loro sostentamento sotto forma di banconote locali spendibili in tutte le attività commerciali presenti in zona. Ci spiega che senza questa moneta molti invierebbero questo denaro ai famigliari nei paesi di origine procacciandosi i beni di prima necessità in altro modo. Questo "stratagemma" permette anche la crescita economica del territorio perché queste banconote non possono essere scambiate né spese altrove. Prima di congedarsi il Sindaco ci regala qualche bottiglia del suo buon vino, un regalo prezioso che custodiamo a ricordo di una straordinaria accoglienza.

Raggiungiamo Riace dove a farci da "cicerone" troviamo Francesca Lazzaro, una preparatissima laureanda in Scienze dei Beni Culturali. Negli stretti vicoli del paese incontriamo gente di ogni nazionalità e diversi monumenti. Ad un tratto delle voci di festa attirano la nostra attenzione e, dopo qualche tortuoso vicolo, entriamo in un luogo di culto nel quale si tiene un'affollatissima cerimonia religiosa. Tanti, forse troppi per quel locale, cantano e osserviamo varie donne di colore con piccoli bimbi in spalla. Il rito ci affascina al punto che, nonostante l'estremo caldo, cerchiamo di documentare ogni momento. Riprendiamo il viaggio nei vicoli e, per terra, quasi ci stesse aspettando, troviamo un quaderno di un piccolo profugo che impara a scrivere i suoi temi. La curiosità è tanta e, quasi avessimo in mano un best-seller, sfogliamo ogni pagina e leggiamo i suoi racconti. Anche a Riace decidiamo di incontrare il Sindaco, Domenico Lucano, ormai noto per le scelte che lo hanno fatto diventare una delle quaranta persone più influenti al mondo e che recentemente è sulla cronaca di molti giornali. Entrati in Comune lo troviamo in riunione, la sua voce forte e decisa si sente negli uffici vicini. Gli rubiamo qualche attimo trovandolo di poche parole, comprensibilmente assorto da tanti pensieri.

La permanenza in questi paesi vicinissimi alla costa ci consente di apprezzare litorali puliti ma poco affollati perché, a nostro avviso, quelle spiagge meriterebbero molti più turisti. Pochi chilometri consentono di visitare varie attrattive fra cui il castello di San Fili. Si tratta di una vera e propria base militare del XVII° secolo posta in cima ad una collina. Ci soffermiamo ad osservare un'incantevole scalinata, il panorama dal tetto, le feritoie, le postazioni di avvistamento, gli ampi locali. Il vento ed il panorama sulla costa ci invitano a fermarci per documentare opportunamente questo capolavoro abbandonato ed in lento degrado quasi che il lavoro per costruirlo non fosse stato mai stato apprezzato.

L'accoglienza, la bellezza dei luoghi e l'interesse per i racconti dei profughi ci invogliano a trascorrere qualche altro giorno focalizzando l'attenzione su quanto possiamo imparare da chi ha dovuto lasciare la sua terra.

Rientriamo, quindi, a Camini dove il trascorrere del tempo è scandito dal rumore dei flessibili e dei martelli pneumatici che, nelle mani dei maestri locali, dei profughi e degli extracomunitari, danno nuova vita alle case del centro altrimenti destinate all'abbandono e dal continuo rumore delle ruote dei trolley dei tanti volontari che si danno il cambio. Nella piazza del paese troviamo di buon mattino i volontari a far colazione. Varie le età e tantissime le nazioni di provenienza. Ad accomunarli sembra esserci solo la lingua inglese ed il desiderio di rendere il loro tempo utile e produttivo. Americani, cinesi, finlandesi e volontari di tutto il mondo vengono incessantemente seguiti dalle dottoresse Maria Stella Tassone e dalla danese Sarah Scott Ford, referenti di "Projects Abroad", società di volontariato internazionale ai quali molti si sono rivolti per aiutare, crescere e viaggiare. La responsabile Maria Stella Tassone, nata e cresciuta proprio in questi luoghi, ci accompagna nei vari laboratori sparsi nel paese e ci racconta che dopo il periodo di studi a Chieti, senza questa opportunità lavorativa, quasi certamente sarebbe stata costretta a spostarsi al nord o all'estero per lavorare. Visitiamo la biblioteca e i laboratori di arte, di ceramica, di pittura, di falegnameria, di scultura, di taglio e cucito nei quali i profughi possono esprimere la propria creatività ed imparare a lavorare vari materiali. Ogni laboratorio ha un docente preparato e sempre disponibile. Non mancano in paese un'ampia ludoteca ed il guardaroba con vestiti e scarpe a disposizione di tutti. Fra i tantissimi profughi ci fermiamo a conoscere due bambine di origine siriana che ci aiutano a colloquiare con il padre. Si, perché in questi luoghi i piccoli fanno da interpreti ai genitori che hanno maggiore difficoltà ad imparare la lingua italiana. Veniamo distratti dalla presenza di un ragazzino che non potrà avere più di dieci anni e qui conosce e parla ben sei lingue. Riprendiamo la conoscenza di Mohamed che con qualche parola in italiano ma, soprattutto, con l'aiuto delle figlie, inizia a raccontarci la sua storia mentre i suoi occhi diventano sempre più lucidi. Ha una quarantina di anni ed in Siria è stato colpito dalle schegge di una bomba alla schiena, è padre di quattro figlie ed ha dovuto subire due interventi che non gli hanno risolto il problema dei continui dolori che avverte. Il suo progetto, ci racconta, è giunto al termine e fra pochi mesi dovrà lasciare l'alloggio nel quale vive e che ci invita a visitare. Conosciamo la moglie che, dopo aver coperto il capo, si presenta a noi e ci offre da bere. Qualche giocattolo nelle mani delle bimbe regalano un sorriso e qualche capo d'abbigliamento per le bimbe sembra essere più apprezzato dei giocattoli mostrando una maturità insolita in bambini di pochi anni. Ci mostra con orgoglio il Corano, alcune frasi sui muri di un ambiente dedicato alla preghiera ed inizia a leggere il Corano per noi. La piazza, nel frattempo, si popola per la cena mentre il peso della calda giornata si legge in ogni volto. Ci invitano a giocare a scopa ad un tavolo dove grazie all'inglese riusciamo a colloquiare con gli altri giocatori. Al termine della partita, quando nella piazza si può godere il fresco ed ammirare l'invidiabile panorama che arriva al mare, ci invitano ad osservare un particolare "narghilè" offrendoci la possibilità di provarlo. Ci soffermiamo a conoscere un altro siriano, anche lui si chiama Mohamed, ha meno di trent'anni ed è giunto in Italia con la sua famiglia e con genitori e suoceri. È un bravissimo piastrellista, sul suo smartphone ci mostra i suoi lavori eseguiti in Siria ed oggi vive con la giovanissima moglie e i due suoi piccoli figli. Insiste perché accettiamo il suo invito a visitare la sua casa nella quale ci racconta di aver effettuato alcuni interventi. Accettiamo l'invito per la mattina successiva e, in tarda mattinata, ci attende in piazza. Ci conduce in casa dove conosciamo la moglie, poco più che ragazzina; ha il capo coperto e, solo ad una socia, mostra una sua fotografia con la sua bellissima capigliatura sciolta. Ci offrono del tè ed insistono per ospitarci a pranzo e farci assaporare alcune pietanze tipiche. Lei cura la casa ed i bambini, lui si occupa della cucina. Ci mostra come prepara l'impasto per il pane e come lo cucina direttamente sulla fiamma. Lo condisce con una salsa speziata e lo serve ancora caldo e croccante. Purtroppo è tempo di partire. Raccogliamo i nostri bagagli, saldiamo i conti, custodiamo gelosamente le memorie fotografiche con migliaia di scatti, i nostri appunti, una rubrica piena di contatti ed iniziamo a salutare tutti. Seppur sera, troviamo il Sindaco ed alcuni assessori impegnati in giunta, ma la nostra presenza sembra avere la priorità su ogni altra cosa. Consegniamo qualche altro giocattolo e capo di abbigliamento portato con noi; uno dei soci, che non ha potuto seguirci, ci autorizza ad omaggiare qualcuna delle sue fotografie portate in mostra e, con grande dispiacere, abbracciamo tutti nella speranza che il nostro vissuto, riportato nella nostra documentazione, possa realmente far riflettere perché queste realtà non possono soccombere. Riteniamo di aver portato a termine il nostro scopo: accendere i riflettori su una realtà che rischia di essere compromessa dalle possibili derive razziste delle odierne politiche italiane. A distanza di qualche mese, sgomenti, leggiamo dell'atto intimidatorio ai danni del Sindaco di Camini e dell'arresto del Sindaco di Riace, quest'ultima notizia, sulla quale molti scrivono, ci sembra dettata da chi questi luoghi non li ha mai conosciuti e non conosce la realtà.

          Britain, NATO Prepare For War On Russia In The Arctic      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Brian Cloughley via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

On September 30 the UK’s foreign minister, Jeremy Hunt, delivered an astonishing tirade, saying “The EU was set up to protect freedom. It was the Soviet Union that stopped people leaving. The lesson from history is clear: if you turn the EU club into a prison, the desire to get out won’t diminish, it will grow — and we won’t be the only prisoner that will want to escape.”

His comparison of the EU to gulags of former years played well with many people in Britain, but was understandably regarded as totally inappropriate by the EU, whose spokesman’s polite observation was “I would say respectfully that we would all benefit – and in particular foreign affairs ministers – from opening a history book from time to time.”

The lunacy didn’t stop there. Not content with insulting the EU’s 27 countries, the government in London decided to whip up even more patriotic fervour by again trying to portray Russia as a threat to the United Kingdom.

In June 2018 the UK’s Sun newspaper carried the headline “Britain will send RAF Typhoon fighter jets to Iceland in bid to tackle Russian aggression” and since then Mr Williamson hasn’t altered his contention that “the Kremlin continues to challenge us in every domain.” (Williamson is the man who declared in March 2018 that “Frankly Russia should go away — it should shut up,” which was one of the most juvenile public utterances of recent years.)

It was reported on September 29 that Williamson was concerned about “growing Russian aggression ‘in our back yard’,” and that the Government was drawing up a “defence Arctic strategy” with 800 commandos being deployed to a new base in Norway. In an interview “Mr Williamson highlighted Russia’s re-opening of Soviet-era bases and ‘increased tempo’ of submarine activity as evidence that Britain needed to ‘demonstrate we’re there’ and ‘protect our interests’.”

Mr Williamson has not indicated what “interests” the United Kingdom could have in the Arctic region, where it has no territory.

The eight countries with territory north of the Arctic Circle are Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. They have legitimate interests in the region which is twice the area of the US and Canada combined. But Britain has not one single claim to the Arctic. Not even a tenuous one like Iceland’s, which is based on the fact that although its mainland is not within the Arctic Circle, the Circle does pass through Grimsey Island, about 25 kilometres north of Iceland’s north coast. Britain’s Shetland Islands, its northernmost land, are 713 kilometres (443 miles) south of the Arctic Circle.

So why does the UK declare that it has “interests” in the Arctic and that the region is “in our back yard”? How can it possibly feel threatened?

The Arctic Institute observed in February 2018 that Russia’s “newer Arctic strategy papers focus on preventing smuggling, terrorism, and illegal immigration instead of balancing military power with NATO. These priorities suggest that Russia’s security aims in the Arctic have to do with safeguarding the Arctic as a strategic resource base... In general, the government-approved documents seem to have moved from an assertive tone that highlights Russia’s rivalry with NATO to a less abrasive tone based on securing economic development.”

And economic development is what it’s all about. On September 28 “it was reported that “a Danish-flagged cargo ship successfully passed through the Russian Arctic in a trial voyage showing that melting sea ice could potentially open a new trade route from Europe to east Asia.” It is obviously in the best economic interests of the European Union and Russia that the route be developed for commercial transit. To do this requires avoidance of conflict in the region.

So what’s your problem, Defence Minister Williamson?

In August Britain’s Parliamentary Defence Committee published On Thin Ice: UK Defence in the Arctic which concluded that “There is little doubt that the Arctic and the High North are seeing an increasing level of military activity. There is much greater divergence in the evidence we have taken on what the reasons behind this are, particularly in relation to Russia. One view is that there is no offensive intent behind Russia’s military build-up and that it is simply trying to regenerate military capacity in order to reassert sovereignty. The opposite view is that this is just one more part of Russia’s aggressive reassertion of great power competition.”

The Danish Government told the Committee that “Presently, Denmark sees no need for an increased military engagement or enhanced operative role for NATO in the Arctic”, and the Swedish Ambassador said “The Swedish Arctic is a limited part of Swedish territory. We are more a Baltic Sea nation than an Arctic nation... Obviously, the whole area around the Arctic, in particular the Kola Peninsula, is of strategic importance to Russia and they have a serious military presence there. We see all of that. Is that reason to call it militarisation of the Arctic?”

In January Reuters reported that China had notified its Arctic strategy, “pledging to work more closely with Moscow in particular to create an Arctic maritime counterpart — a ‘Polar Silk Road’ — to its ‘one belt, one road’ overland trade route to Europe. Both the Kremlin and Beijing have repeatedly stated that their ambitions are primarily commercial and environmental, not military.” It couldn’t be plainer that Russia and China want the Arctic to be a profitable mercantile trade route, while Russia wants to continue exploration for oil, gas and mineral deposits, which are important for its economy.

To develop the Arctic requires peace and stability. It would be impossible to reap the benefits of the new sea-route and potentially enormous energy and mineral riches if there were to be conflict in the North. It is obviously in the best interests of Russia and China that there be tranquillity rather than military confrontation.

But Britain’s Defence Minister insists there must be a military build-up by the UK in the Arctic “If we want to be protecting our interests in what is effectively our own back yard.” He is backed by the Parliament’s Defence Committee which states that “NATO’s renewed focus on the North Atlantic is welcome and the Government should be congratulated on the leadership the UK has shown on this issue.”

NATO is always on the lookout for excuses to indulge in military action (such as its nine–month blitz that destroyed Libya), and has announced it will conduct Arctic-focussed Exercise Trident Juncture in November, which Naval Today noted will be “one of the largest ever with 40,000 personnel, around 120 aircraft and as many as 70 ships converging in Norway.”

The NATO military alliance is preparing for war in the Arctic, and deliberately confronting Russia by conducting manoeuvres ever-closer to its borders. It had better be very careful.


          World's Most Powerful Passport Revealed As Countries' Global Rankings Shift      Cache   Translate Page      
Japan passport holders will find it easier than ever to travel the world, as their travel documents have just moved up in the global Henley Passport Index to take the top spot.

The Henley Passport Index is a ranking of all of the passports in the world based on the number of countries their holders can travel to visa-free.

Until now Japan had been sharing joint first place with Singapore, which gained visa-free access to Uzbekistan earlier this year bringing its total to 189 countries.

However, earlier this month Japan gained visa-free access to Myanmar bringing its total to 190 - once again taking it to the top spot.


It's still a milestone for both Japan and Singapore, as 2018 is the first year in the index's 13-year history that either of them has had the most powerful passport in the world.
Both are way ahead of the UK and US which share fifth place with Portugal, the Netherlands, Austria and Luxembourg - but it's worth noting that the top four spots are shared by 10 countries.

Experts had previously revealed that the UK ranking is unlikely to increase until there is certainty regarding Brexit.

WATCH OUT GREEN PIGS! ROVIO AND RESOLUTION GAMES LAUNCH ANGRY BIRDS FPS: FIRST PERSON SLINGSHOT ON MAGIC LEAP ONE The new mixed reality game is available for free today and delivers the most immersive Angry Birds experience yet with precision controls and incredible spatial gameplay STOCKHOLM, Sweden, and ESPOO, Finland – Oct. 9, 2018 – Angry Birds fans can now slingshot with unrivaled accuracy in Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot, the new mixed reality (MR) game released today for Magic Leap One Creator Edition at the L.E.A.P Conference by Rovio Entertainment (ROVIO) and Resolution Games. Angry Birds FPS is the first gaming experience developed entirely by an independent developer for Magic Leap’s spatial computing platform. A first-person slingshot lets players see incredibly realistic animated characters and objects overlaid onto their actual environment, bringing Angry Birds to life like never before – right in users’ homes. Magic Leap One Creator Edition is a lightweight, wearable computer that enriches your experience in the real world with digital content. A trailer of the game is available here. Kati Levoranta, CEO at Rovio Entertainment, commented, “It’s great to offer Angry Birds fans a completely new and unforeseen way to play the beloved Angry Birds. Resolution Games has done an excellent job at developing the Angry Birds to Magic Leap One. We’re always looking for opportunities to expand to new technologies and platforms, and Angry Birds FPS is an exciting step forward into the future of gaming.” For the very first time, Angry Birds fans can explore and navigate their environments to select which object to hit and angle their shot precisely for maximum impact. Players can then assess the damage by simply walking up to and around the structure. As players take aim, either directly or by bouncing off actual objects in the room, they can try to inflict maximum damage to the Green Pigs with the least hits or from farthest away to earn more points and stars in each level. “Rovio has established an incredibly successful and beloved entertainment franchise with Angry Birds. By taking Angry Birds to Magic Leap’s spatial computing platform, we’re giving fans one of the most engaging, interactive and immersive experiences possible,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games. “It really is quite remarkable that in 2018 we’re able to use full spatial gameplay and light field technology to enjoy these classic game mechanics and characters in our own environments.

          Wednesday's papers: National park limits, criminal gangs and nuclear questions      Cache   Translate Page      

Daily Maaseudun Tulevaisuus reports that the Finns Party youth organisation says it would limit the free use of national parks to Finnish citizens only. While growing tourism to Finland is a positive development, the country’s unique nature needs to be preserved for the next generations too, the group says.

"The forest is a church to Finns, and as a nationalistic youth organisation we are concerned about its state," the group's chair Samuli Voutila says in a statement.

”Will our magnificent national parks withstand the increasing number of visitors? And can foreigners correctly enjoy these rights that are inherent to Finns?” he asks.

As a result, the Finns Party juniors have proposed that foreign tourists and travel agencies should be required to buy a so called "forest permit" that allows non-citizens to roam in the woods based on the same rules as Finns.

The funds would be collected by Metsähallitus – a state-owned entity that manages public lands – and used to maintain the parks.

"To Finns, nature is not just a resource, but a holy place," Voutila adds.

Criminal gangs proliferate

Tabloid Iltalehti carries an article about new criminal gangs that have entered Finland in the past two years. These international gangs originate in Holland, Russia, the United States and Asia and operate globally, the paper says quoting the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

According to NBI police inspector Ari Lahtela, the new gangs are active in the same areas as the more established ones.

"Drugs, violence and financial crime," he says.

At the moment, there are 80 different criminal gangs in Finland, with a total membership of 800 people, the NBI estimates.

"The gangs are more visible in large cities where they congregate. However, they take care of the import and distribution of drugs across the country, from Hanko to Utsjoki," Lahtela explains.

What's more, the criminal underworld is nervous about the new competitors, Iltalehti says. "The old gangs worry about the newcomers entering their markets and whether this will lead to a conflict," Lahtela says.

In Sweden, the situation with the gangs looks quite difficult because the groups have become more international, causing tensions and violence.

"While the Swedish authorities recognised the situation already 10 years ago, not much has been done about it."

Nuclear safety questioned

Meanwhile, Oulu-based daily Kaleva reports that Finland's Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (Stuk) has asked nuclear power company Fennovoima for more detailed reports about the power plant the company plans to construct in Pyhäjoki, northern Finland.

So far, the only area where Stuk has received adequate reports relates to waste disposal at the Hanhikivi site, Kaleva says.

Stuk director Petteri Tiippana says dealing with Fennovoima has been an exceptional process for Stuk.

"All parties need to learn about the ways the others operate and how these can be combined," Tiippana says.

Janne Nevalainen, Stuk's project manager responsible for the Hanhikivi plant, says Fennovoima needs to step up its game.

"In future, Fennovoima must provide analyses and plans specific to this plant. We cannot make decisions based on information and assumptions from other power plants."

Stuk has been worried about Fennovoima’s management and safety culture for quite a while, Kaleva reports.

"All plans and decisions taken at Fennovoima should be based on exact and thorough studies. We are unsure whether this has happened," Nevalainen says.

          Expert: Räden en signal till Kreml – det är nog nu      Cache   Translate Page      

Den stora polisinsatsen i den finska skärgården kan bottna i misstankar om en militär rysk underrättelseoperation.

– Räden hade ett huvudmål – att signalera åt Kreml att Finland inte längre tolererar den här sortens verksamhet, säger Tomas Ries vid Försvarshögskolan.

Samtidigt misstänker allt fler länder ryska aktiviteter.


          Britain, NATO Prepare For War On Russia In The Arctic      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Brian Cloughley via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

On September 30 the UK’s foreign minister, Jeremy Hunt, delivered an astonishing tirade, saying “The EU was set up to protect freedom. It was the Soviet Union that stopped people leaving. The lesson from history is clear: if you turn the EU club into a prison, the desire to get out won’t diminish, it will grow — and we won’t be the only prisoner that will want to escape.”

His comparison of the EU to gulags of former years played well with many people in Britain, but was understandably regarded as totally inappropriate by the EU, whose spokesman’s polite observation was “I would say respectfully that we would all benefit – and in particular foreign affairs ministers – from opening a history book from time to time.”

The lunacy didn’t stop there. Not content with insulting the EU’s 27 countries, the government in London decided to whip up even more patriotic fervour by again trying to portray Russia as a threat to the United Kingdom.

In June 2018 the UK’s Sun newspaper carried the headline “Britain will send RAF Typhoon fighter jets to Iceland in bid to tackle Russian aggression” and since then Mr Williamson hasn’t altered his contention that “the Kremlin continues to challenge us in every domain.” (Williamson is the man who declared in March 2018 that “Frankly Russia should go away — it should shut up,” which was one of the most juvenile public utterances of recent years.)

It was reported on September 29 that Williamson was concerned about “growing Russian aggression ‘in our back yard’,” and that the Government was drawing up a “defence Arctic strategy” with 800 commandos being deployed to a new base in Norway. In an interview “Mr Williamson highlighted Russia’s re-opening of Soviet-era bases and ‘increased tempo’ of submarine activity as evidence that Britain needed to ‘demonstrate we’re there’ and ‘protect our interests’.”

Mr Williamson has not indicated what “interests” the United Kingdom could have in the Arctic region, where it has no territory.

The eight countries with territory north of the Arctic Circle are Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. They have legitimate interests in the region which is twice the area of the US and Canada combined. But Britain has not one single claim to the Arctic. Not even a tenuous one like Iceland’s, which is based on the fact that although its mainland is not within the Arctic Circle, the Circle does pass through Grimsey Island, about 25 kilometres north of Iceland’s north coast. Britain’s Shetland Islands, its northernmost land, are 713 kilometres (443 miles) south of the Arctic Circle.

So why does the UK declare that it has “interests” in the Arctic and that the region is “in our back yard”? How can it possibly feel threatened?

The Arctic Institute observed in February 2018 that Russia’s “newer Arctic strategy papers focus on preventing smuggling, terrorism, and illegal immigration instead of balancing military power with NATO. These priorities suggest that Russia’s security aims in the Arctic have to do with safeguarding the Arctic as a strategic resource base... In general, the government-approved documents seem to have moved from an assertive tone that highlights Russia’s rivalry with NATO to a less abrasive tone based on securing economic development.”

And economic development is what it’s all about. On September 28 “it was reported that “a Danish-flagged cargo ship successfully passed through the Russian Arctic in a trial voyage showing that melting sea ice could potentially open a new trade route from Europe to east Asia.” It is obviously in the best economic interests of the European Union and Russia that the route be developed for commercial transit. To do this requires avoidance of conflict in the region.

So what’s your problem, Defence Minister Williamson?

In August Britain’s Parliamentary Defence Committee published On Thin Ice: UK Defence in the Arctic which concluded that “There is little doubt that the Arctic and the High North are seeing an increasing level of military activity. There is much greater divergence in the evidence we have taken on what the reasons behind this are, particularly in relation to Russia. One view is that there is no offensive intent behind Russia’s military build-up and that it is simply trying to regenerate military capacity in order to reassert sovereignty. The opposite view is that this is just one more part of Russia’s aggressive reassertion of great power competition.”

The Danish Government told the Committee that “Presently, Denmark sees no need for an increased military engagement or enhanced operative role for NATO in the Arctic”, and the Swedish Ambassador said “The Swedish Arctic is a limited part of Swedish territory. We are more a Baltic Sea nation than an Arctic nation... Obviously, the whole area around the Arctic, in particular the Kola Peninsula, is of strategic importance to Russia and they have a serious military presence there. We see all of that. Is that reason to call it militarisation of the Arctic?”

In January Reuters reported that China had notified its Arctic strategy, “pledging to work more closely with Moscow in particular to create an Arctic maritime counterpart — a ‘Polar Silk Road’ — to its ‘one belt, one road’ overland trade route to Europe. Both the Kremlin and Beijing have repeatedly stated that their ambitions are primarily commercial and environmental, not military.” It couldn’t be plainer that Russia and China want the Arctic to be a profitable mercantile trade route, while Russia wants to continue exploration for oil, gas and mineral deposits, which are important for its economy.

To develop the Arctic requires peace and stability. It would be impossible to reap the benefits of the new sea-route and potentially enormous energy and mineral riches if there were to be conflict in the North. It is obviously in the best interests of Russia and China that there be tranquillity rather than military confrontation.

But Britain’s Defence Minister insists there must be a military build-up by the UK in the Arctic “If we want to be protecting our interests in what is effectively our own back yard.” He is backed by the Parliament’s Defence Committee which states that “NATO’s renewed focus on the North Atlantic is welcome and the Government should be congratulated on the leadership the UK has shown on this issue.”

NATO is always on the lookout for excuses to indulge in military action (such as its nine–month blitz that destroyed Libya), and has announced it will conduct Arctic-focussed Exercise Trident Juncture in November, which Naval Today noted will be “one of the largest ever with 40,000 personnel, around 120 aircraft and as many as 70 ships converging in Norway.”

The NATO military alliance is preparing for war in the Arctic, and deliberately confronting Russia by conducting manoeuvres ever-closer to its borders. It had better be very careful.

@Felice sicuramente l'Unità d'Italia partì male, neanche io credo alla favoletta di Garibaldi che con soli mille uomini conquista il Regno delle Due Sicilie ma furono piuttosto le manovre dei britannici e gli ufficiali borbonici a libro paga dei Savoia che permisero a Garibaldi di arrivare al Volturno. @Fernando lavoro anche io nel pubblico da 16 anni al comune di Roma e non ho mai avuto problemi con l'utenza, molto dipende da come ti poni. @Felice la Russia probabilmente è stata una minaccia per la Finlandia (che poi ai tempi dello zar i finlandesi erano soddisfatti della dominazione russa), la Polonia e altri paesi confinanti ma non è mai stata una minaccia per l'Italia rispetto alla Francia e alla Spagna che nei secoli passati in Italia ci hanno dominato e hanno saccheggiato nel nostre terre E sinceramente mi dispiace assistere da qualche anno a una pubblicistica che non fa altro che delegittimare il nostro Risorgimento mettendo i soldati pontifici sullo stesso piano dei garibaldini o peggio ancora i soldati borbonici o austriaci. E' una cosa che io trovo veramente fastidiosa, che i generali sabaudi non fossero dei fulmini di guerra siamo d'accordo ma per favore non diciamo che sotto i Borboni o il Papa Pio IX si stava meglio @Libero sul Reddito di Cittadinanza io sono d'accordo, va sicuramente regolamentato, anche in altri paesi esistono forme di sussidio per chi è alla ricerca di un impiego.

Με χρώματα γέμισε ο ουρανός πάνω από τη Φινλανδία, καθώς το Βόρειο Σέλας έκανε την εμφάνισή του την Κυριακή.
Το φωτεινό ουράνιο φαινόμενο «χρωμάτισε» τον ορίζοντα πάνω από το Ροβανιέμι στη Λαπωνία με τον φακό να καταγράφει εντυπωσιακά πλάνα από το… «χορευτικό» του.
REUTERS/ALEXANDER KUZNETSOV
 
Το Σέλας είναι ένα ουράνιο φαινόμενο που συμβαίνει στα ανώτερα στρώματα της ατμόσφαιρας, όταν εισέρχονται σε αυτήν ηλεκτρικά φορτισμένα σωματίδια από τον ήλιο.
Παρατηρείται ιδίως στις πολικές περιοχές, τόσο στο Βόρειο, όσο και στο Νότιο ημισφαίριο.
Το Ροβανιέμι είναι πρωτεύουσα της περιφέρειας της Λαπωνίας.
REUTERS/ALEXANDER KUZNETSOV
 
Έχει περίπου 60.000 κατοίκους, ενώ εκεί βρίσκεται η έδρα του πανεπιστημίου της Λαπωνίας, στο οποίο φοιτούν περίπου 10.000 φοιτητές.
Βρίσκεται κοντά στον Αρκτικό Κύκλο, ενώ θεωρείται από τους Φινλανδούς ως το πραγματικό σπίτι του Άι-Βασίλη.
Στην περιοχή φιλοξενείται και το Χωριό του Άι-Βασίλη, ένα θεματικό πάρκο για μικρούς και μεγάλους λάτρεις των Χριστουγέννων.

Мне предложили рассказать о Финляндии. Однако дело такое, что я свыкся и сжился с этой замечательной (без шуток) страной и не особо удивляюсь местным явлениям. Да и в России (или где вы там живете) многое изменилось после моего отъезда. Так что спрашивайте, задавайте в комментах вопросы на интересующие вас темы, а я попробую на них ответить кратко/некратко в следующем посте и, если моих познаний хватит, осветить знакомые мне темы в последующих постах. Сразу говорю, что некоторыми темами я откровенно не интересуюсь, и скорее всего на все вопросы сам не отвечу, но я не один "финн" на дёти. Так что неотвеченные вопросы оставлю в посте с соответствующей пометкой — может кто–то другой знает больше. Формат простой: на первом уровне комментов задаете вопрос. Желательно успеть задать вопросы до пятницы.

Мне и самому хотелось бы развенчать некоторые мифы, коими рунет просто кишит. Для затравки: здесь иногда светит солнце, растет много деревьев и у женщин не поперек (ой как смищно).

          Nokia 6.1 Bakal Cicipi Android Pie Bulan Ini      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - HMD Global (HMD) tengah bersiap merilis pembaruan OS Android untuk smartphone Nokia 6.1 dan 6.1 Plus.

Menurut laporan, kedua smartphone akan bisa mencicipi Android Pie pada bulan ini.

Dilansir GSM Arena, Rabu (10/10/2018), peluncuran OS Android Pie ini sejalan dengan janji HMD, tentang pembaruan sistem untuk jajaran smartphone Nokia.

Seri Nokia 6.1 merupakan salah satu smartphone HMD yang akan mendapatkan pembaruan OS ke Android Pie.

Nokia 6.1 dan 6.1 Plus menjadi smartphone pertama HMD yang mendapatkan pembaruan ke Android Pie pada bulan ini. Selanjutnya, Nokia 8 dan 8 Sirocco juga akan mendapatkannya pada November 2018.

Android 9 Pie merupakan versi terbaru OS Android. Google pertama kali mengumumkannya pada 7 Maret 2018, dan versi developer preview pertama dirilis pada hari yang sama.

Android P secara resmi dirilis pada 6 Agustus 2018 sebagai Android 9 Pie. Deretan smartphone pertama yang mencicipi OS tersebut adalah smartphone Pixel, OnePlus 6, Nokia 7 Plus, dan Essential Phone.

Nokia 9 PureView Bakal Jadi Flagship Baru HMD?

Deretan smartphone Nokia. Liputan6.com/ Andina Librianty#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Terlepas dari Nokia 6.1 dan Android Pie, HMD dilaporkan akan merilis smartphone flagship barunya dengan nama Nokia 9 PureView.

Informasi ini muncul setelah HMD dipastikan sudah memperoleh merek dagang PureView, sehingga bisa digunakan untuk jajaran produknya.

Setelah mendapatkan hak menggunakan merek dagang PureView, HMD pun disebut akan segera memulai pemasaran untuk smartphone flagship itu.

Laporan ini bertolak belakang dari kabar sebelumnya, yang menyebutkan peluncurannya mundur sampai tahun depan.

Nokia 9 PureView kemungkinan besar diumumkan pada 11 Oktober 2018. Pihak HMD belum memberikan pernyataan resmi tentang kehadiran Nokia 9 Pureview.

Perusahaan asal Finlandia itu pun belum mengonfirmasi tentang nama smartphone flagship barunya.

Sejauh ini, rumor yang paling menarik adalah dukungan modul kamera penta-lens atau lima kamera belakang.

Selain itu, Nokia 9 PureView juga digadang-gadang akan menjadi perangkat pertama HMD dengan pemindai sidik jari di dalam layar.

Menurut kabar yang beredar, Nokia 9 PureView juga memiliki perbedaan signifikan dengan Nokia 8 Sirocco yang dirilis HMD Global di konferensi Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018.

Smartphone ini akan memiliki desain layar edge-to-edge seperti Nokia 8 Sirocco, tapi aspek rasionya 18:9.

          Industria cartaria italiana: urgente pianificare l’economia circolare e la gestione degli scarti del riciclo      Cache   Translate Page      

Inaugurando il MIAC, la manifestazione ufficiale di Assocarta patrocinata da Confindustria Toscana Nord e organizzata da Edipap, il presidente di Assocarta, Girolamo Marchi, ha detto che «L’industria cartaria italiana si conferma al quarto posto a livello europeo dopo Germania, Svezia e Finlandia” afferma  “con una produzione di carta e cartone di 5,5 milioni di tonnellate nei primi 7 mesi del 2018 (+1,9 sul 2017) sostenuta principalmente da una domanda interna in aumento (nei primi 6 mesi del 2018) del 6% con dinamiche importanti in tutti i comparti e particolarmente positivi delle carte per usi grafici (+6,3%) e carte e cartoni per packaging (+6,7%). Il fatturato nei primi 7 mesi 2018 è stimato intorno ai 4,7 miliardi di Euro, in aumento del 6,8%, risultato connesso con la necessità delle cartiere di recuperare gli ingenti rincari delle cellulose arrivate al record storico di 1230 $/tonnellata. Da inizio 2016 ad oggi: +52% pari a +420 $ per tonnellata le fibre lunghe, +62% (+400$/tonnellata) le corte».

Al centro del dibattito della conferenza stampa di apertura del MIAC è stata l’economia circolare, «di cui le cartiere sono un attore fondamentale – sottolinea ASsoc arta - producendo oltre 9 milioni di tonnellate di carta annue (2017) a partire da un materiale rinnovabile, e con l’utilizzo di 5 milioni di tonnellate di carta da riciclare (2017) con un tasso medio di circolarità del 55%, e più dell’80% nell’imballaggio, uno dei più alti d’Europa».

Infatti, la tavola rotonda “Di quale fibra è l’economia circolare: lo sviluppo sostenibile alla prova dei fatti”, ha  evidenziato «L’assoluta necessità di un rinnovato dialogo tra imprese e amministrazioni affinché impianti e infrastrutture vengano rinnovate e adeguate per conseguire gli obiettivi dell’Economia Circolare e che, quindi, si assicuri agli scarti del riciclo la  priorità di recupero e di smaltimento nelle infrastrutture per la gestione dei rifiuti».

Secondo Marchi, «Garantire la priorità agli scarti del riciclo dagli impianti di smaltimento e di recupero previsti dalla pianificazione regionale sarebbe una semplice ed efficace misura per incrementare il riciclo e, quindi, migliorare la gestione dei rifiuti urbani. “In questo modo la capacità di riciclo delle cartiere italiane verrebbe aumentata utilizzando gran parte della carta da riciclare che viene oggi esportata (circa 2 milioni di tonnellate l’anno) con benefiche ricadute in termini di occupazione. Esporteremmo meno carta da riciclare ma importeremmo meno prodotti finiti di più alto valore aggiunto migliorando la nostra bilancia commerciale”. Il settore cartario italiano investe in efficienza energetica (migliorata del 30% negli ultimi 20 anni) e nell’incremento della propria capacità di riciclo nonostante le difficoltà burocratiche. Ogni minuto nel nostro Paese, si riciclano 10 tonnellate di carta (di cui 2,5 nel distretto di Lucca), un contributo importante all’Economia Circolare della Toscana e dell’Italia. La regione rappresenta oltre il 30% della produzione di carta nazionale (specialmente carta per uso igienico-sanitario e per imballaggio) e il 27% circa del consumo italiano di carta da riciclare».

Ma Assocarta lamenta che «La competitività dell’industria cartaria, oltre che con la problematica degli scarti del riciclo che frena le potenzialità dell’industria cartaria e dell’Economia Circolare, deve fare i conti ancora con gli alti costi energetici aumentati dal 2017 di circa il 30% (sia energia elettrica che gas naturale) e che si attestano regolarmente su valori più alti di quelli di Germania e Francia. A ciò va aggiunto il costo crescente della CO2, che spesso non riflette valori tecnologici, ma è condizionato più dagli acquisti dei grandi investitori finanziari».

Al tema del futuro dell’energia in cartiera sarà dedicato domani il seminario “Fossili vs rinnovabili: quale mix energetico per la cartiera del futuro?”durante la quale si discuterà del ruolo delle fonti di energia rinnovabile nella riduzione delle emissioni dirette e indirette del settore cartario.

Marchi conclude: «Gli obiettivi sfidanti della lotta ai cambiamenti climatici hanno portato l’industria cartaria europea ad interrogarsi, con la Roadmap 2050, su come raggiungerli. Le cartiere italiane stanno studiando la strada migliore per ridurre le emissioni di CO2 ed ogni tipologia di azienda dovrà trovare la propria. Un percorso fatto di efficienza energetica e di nuove tecnologie che dovrà necessariamente essere accompagnato da un accesso all’energia a costi competitivi” E conclude: “In un contesto nazionale complessivamente volto alla decarbonizzazione, rimarrà fondamentale il ruolo del gas naturale che ad oggi rimane lo strumento più valido in termini di risparmio di emissioni di CO2 e che fornisce energia agli impianti di riciclo, impegnati nell’Economia Circolare. Il gas naturale alimenta gli impianti di cogenerazione che estraggono almeno l’80% dell’energia del gas in luogo del 60% (ipotesi ottimistica per le centrali termoelettriche). Questo 20% è garantito peraltro per tutte le ore dell’anno e il beneficio in termini di riduzione al ricorso ad altre tecnologie a maggiore emissione di CO2 andrebbe valorizzato!».

L'articolo Industria cartaria italiana: urgente pianificare l’economia circolare e la gestione degli scarti del riciclo sembra essere il primo su Greenreport: economia ecologica e sviluppo sostenibile.

          Inspired By... Vol 10/2018      Cache   Translate Page      

Can you believe that another month has just flown by and it's again time for the 10th? And you know what that means, right? Time for another Inspired By!

Inspired By is something sweet Marsha and me have been doing for years now. Until 2018 it was that we chose a subject to be inspired by and then did something inspired by that theme, a piece of art or a book. The inspiration could be anything but we both turned that into some kind of project and blogged the creation on the 10th. You can browse the past "Inspired By" posts from here (link).

Inspired By is a playground, a concept we can use to explore, to play and to discover. We can do as much or as little we want and have time for. I guess it's not a surprise then that we both enjoy Inspired By very much but after doing it the same way so many years, we thought to change the things a bit.

This year, 2018, we both just post on the 10th with some source of inspiration we found that month. Or rather on a period from the 10th of previous month to 9th of the current month. It can be a series of photos, a book we read, an artwork we saw, just a pebble on the street or a new product we bought. We can make something using that source, but it's more about sharing just the inspiration. Consider it as a window to our creative minds!


Above I included a collage that partly shows the inspiration sources to this month's make. Yes, I again made something. I know that this year especially we have the freedom of NOT doing an actual project for the Inspired by, but still I feel that I want to do one each time. It's something I do for myself, when I can just play without any restrictions. No particular collection I have to use, I don't have to take step by step pictures nor video, so I can just DO stuff without thinking it through first. And that to me is vacation, relaxation and loading the batteries. Just creating for the sake of the fact that it makes me happy and makes me tick.

But back to the inspiration. We visited Fiskars (link) - the village, not the company - some weeks ago as there was a sound festival my husband was interested in there. The village itself, as you can read from the link, is an old industrial community and has given name to the Finnish factory maybe best known for the scissors, Fiskars. There's still a lot of the old buildings around the village and the sound festival was kept in an old foundry. While my husband and daughters were trying out different instruments, I took a stroll around the area with my phone and took some photos of the old machinery that was lying around the area.

As you can see from the collage, there's also something else than old buildings and machinery. We visited our cottage during the same weekend. Forest is a special place to me and I'm lucky that there's plenty of it around our cottage. There's something really soothing about that greenery and silence that's in the forest. As autumn is here, there were a lot of mushrooms around and it all started to form into a project when I saw some dried wood pieces on the ground...


I combined the machinery, the different textures found on forest floor and the color palette of rust and autumn and made a little "cabinet of curiosities" styled display. It's a toadstool with gears and cogs. The stem is made out of a piece of dry wood, painted lightly with white gesso. The cap is made with air drying clay and then painted with acrylics. The toadstool also has a ring that I made out of lace ruffled around the stem. 


To make the little scenery complete, I added some Scandinavian type ferns (kallioimarre in Finnish, link) to the piece using a Sizzix die, an old book page and some ink. I made three plants and curled one of them like the young plants tend to be. They are green then, but the old ones, that turn to brown tend to curl, too, only in a different way. But let's say that I took some artistic liberties. 

As you can see, there's a touch of green in the make, too. That's my take on the moss, the knights plume moss (link) to be exact. That really looks like a feather! So maybe not that of a surprise that I used feathers to make my moss. 


To make the piece more fit for a cabinet of curiosities, I constructed my toadstool and surroundings into a glass dome display. Well, I say glass, but that's plastic to be fair. We got those at work for Christmas pieces and displays but I saw it in another light right away. Now that I've done one, I think I should buy a new one and do something different to it. I really like the shape of the dome! 

But now that I've shared my project and what got me inspired this last month, it's time to see what Marsha has been up to! Here's a link to her post (link). I just love her posts, don't you?


Thank you for stopping by today! Thank you also if you managed to read the whole post! Inspired Bys are usually my longest posts as I write about the process more than usual. Maybe that these "IBs" are my playground, I usually think them differently than my regular DT work where there's a totally different angle on things. 

Have a great day and creative autumn!

           Com Hamilton perto do penta, Ferrari vê Vettel 'desafiar o impossível'       Cache   Translate Page      
Itália - Ao vencer o GP do Japão no último domingo, em Suzuka, Lewis Hamilton faturou o seu sexto triunfo nas últimas sete corridas e ficou muito perto de assegurar um histórico pentacampeonato da Fórmula 1. Única ameaça ao domínio do inglês, o alemão Sebastian Vettel terminou apenas em sexto lugar na prova japonesa e viu a larga diferença do líder no Mundial de Pilotos subir para 67 pontos. O britânico ostenta 331 pontos, contra 264 do piloto da Ferrari, e assim tem chance matemática de assegurar o seu quinto título na F-1 já na etapa seguinte da temporada, marcada para o próximo dia 21, quando será realizado o GP do Estados Unidos, em Austin. Para isso, ele precisa abrir pelo menos oito pontos em relação a Vettel, pois assim ficaria 76 à frente do rival e só restariam 75 ao total em disputa nas três provas derradeiras do ano, no México, no Brasil e em Abu Dabi, nesta ordem. Com este cenário desfavorável, o chefe da Ferrari, Maurizio Arrivabene, reconheceu: “Eu sei que a situação parece impossível (de ser revertida)”. O dirigente, porém, fez questão de enfatizar que o piloto alemão e a escuderia italiana não podem perder a esperança nas suas respectivas lutas pelo Mundial de Pilotos e de Construtores nesta reta final da temporada. “Nosso trabalho às vezes é desafiar o impossível. E isso é que nós vamos fazer e tentar buscar nas futuras corridas”, reforçou. No Mundial de Construtores, a Mercedes tem 78 pontos de vantagem sobre a Ferrari, também vice-líder, e o time de Maranello não consegue conquistar este campeonato paralelo da F-1 desde a temporada de 2008. Naquela ocasião, Felipe Massa, então piloto titular da equipe italiana, disputou o título de pilotos até a última curva do GP do Brasil, que fechava a temporada, com Lewis Hamilton, que acabou triunfando no sufoco pela McLaren com um quinto lugar, enquanto o brasileiro venceu a prova. Depois disso, o inglês voltaria a ser campeão pela Mercedes em 2014, 2015 e 2017. Esperançoso até quando Vettel e a Ferrari estiverem na luta pelos respectivos títulos contra Hamilton e a Mercedes, Arrivabene também chegou a analisar de forma otimista o desempenho da sua escuderia no GP do Japão, no qual, além do sexto lugar obtido pelo alemão, o finlandês Kimi Raikkonen terminou na quinta posição. “Nós ganhamos e perdemos juntos e eu sou o responsável final (como chefe da equipe). Mas eu tenho que dizer que, com relação à corrida no Japão, a equipe e os pilotos reagiram muito bem. Tivemos circunstâncias durante a prova que nos impediram de alcançar o pódio. Mas pelo menos o pódio estava em nossas mãos e os carros, mesmo que danificados, estavam indo muito bem”, ressaltou. Apesar do discurso de Arrivabene, a matemática é implacável para a Ferrari. Se Hamilton vencer o GP dos Estados Unidos, Vettel no mínimo precisa fechar a prova em segundo lugar para evitar que o inglês comemore o título na pista de Austin, no Texas. E, desde 2014, apenas o britânico ganha a prova realizada no Circuito das Américas. Ou seja, o próprio retrospecto torna o piloto da Mercedes ainda mais favorito ao pentacampeonato.

          New size for the Nokian Armor Gard 2 excavator tire      Cache   Translate Page      

Nokian Heavy Tyres, Nokia, Finland, 10 October 2018 – In the spring of 2018, Nokian Tyres introduced a new excavator tire with a feature set matching perfectly the challenges of the urban excavation work. Now, Nokian Armor Gard 2 can be fitted to a wider variety of excavators, thanks to its new 11.00-20 size.

Nokian Armor Gard 2, a true next generation premium tire, found its way from the desks of the product development team to the stores in the spring of 2018. The focus of the world-class product development was in the demands of excavation work in an urban environment: improving the stability and safety of the tire as well as ensuring a long tire life even on long-distance highway transits.

Work-proven design

The demands set for the development were met with flying colors. “Nokian Armor Gard 2 has 25 % more vertical rigidity than its predecessor”, says Eva-Leena Varpe, Product Manager for Nokian Tyres Off-The-Road (OTR) tires. “This gives more stability for excavation work, enabling better accuracy, which is crucial when working in densely populated areas”

The roads tend to be paved in the city excavation sites as well as in the transits between them. That can cause premature wear on excavator tires. Nokian Armor Gard 2 is prepared for this challenge as well. “The wide tread enables lower surface pressure, which means the tire wears out slower”, Varpe explains. “Compared to the previous model, we also added 12 % more rubber to the tread, so there is plenty of it to wear out.”

The contractor benefits

Every product release by Nokian Tyres is preceded with thorough trials in real-life working conditions. The contractors already using Nokian Armor Gard 2 on their excavators have noted the same things as our test users: besides pavement, the tires keep moving forward on soft terrain as well without getting blocked up. What’s more, the highway transits are quieter and more comfortable. “The feedback from the users has been positive”, smiles Varpe from Nokian Tyres. “For my part, I’m glad we’ve created a tire with features that can really help the contractors in their daily work.”

Now in two sizes

Nokian Armor Gard 2 was originally released in one size, 10.00-20. The new 11.00-20 size enables even more contractors to improve their excavator’s properties both on site and in transit.

          Una UE dividida modera su plan de recorte de emisiones      Cache   Translate Page      
La presidencia austriaca propuso ayer una solución de consenso para la legislación que impone una reducción de emisiones de los coches, a medio camino entre las ambiciones de los países más optimistas y los más reticentes. Lejos de los objetivos más maximalistas, los ministros consideraron una reducción de emisiones de CO2 del 35% en 2030 . Para contentar a los más entusiastas, la presidencia propuso al mismo tiempo una cláusula de revisión que se activará en 2024 para analizar si a la luz de las nuevas tecnologías que se hayan desarrollado hasta entonces el proceso de descarbonización del transporte puede ser más rápido. La reunión, que se prolongó durante todo el día, estuvo marcada por la división entre los países miembros. Primero, a la hora de respaldar la revisión al alza de los objetivos climáticos de la UE a partir de 2020 de cara a la próxima Cumbre del Clima que se celebrará en Polonia este diciembre y después en la discusión sobre la reducción de emisiones. El hecho más significativo en esta discusión es que, como en casi todo en la UE, nada funciona bien si Francia y Alemania no están de acuerdo. Y en este caso, Alemania ha estado de forma indisimulada al lado de los intereses de los grandes fabricantes de automóviles, mientras que Francia, cuya industria es igualmente muy poderosa, sigue enarbolando la bandera de la reducción drástica de emisiones, en parte porque la conferencia de París sobre el cambio climático ha dejado una huella en su acción gubernamental, pero también porque eso hace más competitiva su industria eléctrica nuclear en el futuro, o al menos durante unas décadas mas. En este caso, se plantea un problema para España que normalmente podría sumarse a una posición franco-alemana, teniendo en cuenta que en nuestro país el automóvil supone un nada desdeñable 12% de la industria, pero que se queda un poco desguarnecida si tiene que tomar partido entre unos y otros. La ministra para la Transición Ecológica, Teresa Ribera, dijo precisamente a su llegada a Luxemburgo que España aceptaría una solución de consenso entre Francia y Alemania «para ir más deprisa en el futuro» en materia de renovación tecnológica hacia vehículos de bajas o cero emisiones. También fue parte del debate un informe de la Comisión Europea, seguramente filtrado intencionadamente, para advertir de los costes que han calculado sus expertos en materia de empleo en caso de que los ministros tomasen una decisión demasiado drástica en la desaparición de la actual tecnología. La Comisión se refería sobre todo a los costes de la industria auxiliar que orbita en torno a las fábricas de coches y que muchas veces carece de la tecnología adecuada o de la financiación necesaria para adaptarse. O incluso para afrontar su desaparición porque sus productos no tienen cabida en los coches futuros. Los ministros tampoco estaban de acuerdo al discutir su posición en la Cumbre del Clima COP24 que se celebrará en Katowice (Polonia) en diciembre y en la que no se habla de la voluntad política de elevar el objetivo de reducción de gases de efecto invernadero que ahora está fijado en al menos un 40% en 2030, como pedía un grupo de países (además de España, lo apoyaban Bélgica, Chipre, Dinamarca, Finlandia, Francia, Alemania, Grecia, Italia, Luxemburgo, Holanda, Portugal, Eslovenia, Suecia y Gran bretaña). La principal oposición vino por parte de Polonia que tiene una industria energética basada en el carbón y un gobierno nacionalista que no acepta en ningún caso un gesto que interpreta como un menoscabo a su independencia energética, para acabar en manos de un suministrador de gas como Rusia. Ejempleo europeo Al menos el texto recoge en parte el espíritu del último informe de los expertos de la ONU sobre el cambio climático publicado este lunes y recuerda la «urgencia sin precedentes que se necesita para fijar esfuerzos globales para evitar los peligrosos efectos del cambio climático». Europa tiene como objetivo 2030 lograr que el 32% de energía sea de origen renovable en 2030, sumando un 32,5% de reducción de consumo en tecnologías para la eficiencia energética. Y para subrayar el papel de esencial de Europa en el mundo en esta materia, el documento acordado por los ministros comunitarios recuerda que «entre 1990 y 2016, el producto interior bruto de la UE aumentó en un 53% mientras que el total de emisiones cayeron un 22,4%». Entre 1990 y 2012, «la parte total de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero de la UE cayó del 17,3% al 9,9%», lo que confirma que los demás países del mundo no están haciendo lo mismo.
          Jesse Markin Surges Ahead On 'Treat'       Cache   Translate Page      
Jesse Markin (Credit: Kai Kuusisto)
Emphatic R&B with a dark edge...

Jesse Markin was initially a member of The Megaphone State, helping to make three albums with the hip-hop group before choosing his own path.

Debut solo single 'Blood' made an emphatic impression, and this is set to be followed by new single 'Treat'.

Liberian-born, but based in Finland, Jesse Markin's ability to truly nail a subject lends his music a certain intensity, and this rushes through his new single.

A vision of warped R&B but with a dark edge, 'Treat' is actually a song about acknowledging black beauty.

Jesse states; “I stumbled upon an article about world's most beautiful people and who are the most desirable as potential partners. Black women and Asian men were among the last on the list and I wanted to question this kind of rhetoric.”

He continues: “‘Treat’ is about dedication; Acknowledging your own mistakes and growth. I wanted a track that has a deeper and meaningful layer to it, with every listen you’re able to find something new.”

          "World's oldest champagne" discovered near Åland found to be undrinkable      Cache   Translate Page      

About eight years ago, many bottles of what was purported to be the world’s oldest champagne were discovered in a shipwreck among the islands of Åland, the semi-autonomous maritime province off Finland's south-west coast.

There were hopes the champage, bottled around two centuries ago by famed champagne house Veuve Clicquot, could be auctioned off or mixed with a newer vintage.

However, an analysis of the shipwreck bubbly by the French vintner that made it found the beverage to be undrinkable, according to public broadcaster Åland Radio.

Åland's culture minister Tony Asumaa visited France last week, to hear about the champagne firm's analysis. A sample bottle of the shipwreck bubbly was sent to Veuve Clicot last year.

File photo from 2010 of diver that helped find the wreckage of a two-masted ship which had sunk off of Åland’s coast between 1825 and 1830.

At the time, the champagne treasure discovery made headlines around the world. It also caused local controversy when Finland's deputy chancellor of justice reprimanded the Åland regional government for recovering the shipwreck cargo before receiving permission from the National Board of Antiquities. In 2011 and 2012 Åland's government had sold off some of the bottles for record prices at auction and pocketed the considerable proceeds.

Museum artefacts

"Sure, it was champagne, but not of the quality that we wanted, so it is not worth it. From now own we will classify [the bottles of champagne] as museum pieces, not something to consume," Asumaa told Aland Radio.

Before the champagne was deemed undrinkable, there were plans to pop open bottles of it in 2022, marking Åland's 100th year of autonomy.

"There's nothing dangerous about the liquid in the bottles. They have been re-corked and there's no pressure in them anymore, so they can be saved for a long time," Asumaa said.

The champagne - along with a few bottles of beer - was retrieved by Swedish divers in 2010 from a two-masted ship which sunk near the Åland Islands some time between 1825 and 1830.


          Legal reform brings more 17-year-old drivers to Finnish roads      Cache   Translate Page      

The number of underage driving licenses being granted in Finland has steadily increased since reforms relaxed the laws allowing 17-year-olds to get licenses under special circumstances. Usually, people must wait until they turn 18 before being eliglible to drive.

During the five-year period before the reform went into effect in July, only a small handful of licences - between two to seven - were granted to 17-year-olds each year, according to road safety agency Trafi.

In the three months since the law has been in effect however, more than 240 licenses have already been granted to this group, and 170 applications are still pending.

"Before, a 17-year-old would have to present special - and especially compelling - reasons to get a license," says Trafi's specialist Henna Antila. "Now just a specific reason is adequate and [the applicant is] no longer required to prove how severe the need is."

Additionally, the young drivers are also no longer restricted to driving exclusively on specified routes - such as to school or a job. As long as the special permit is kept with them while on the roads, these young drivers have all the privileges of adult drivers.

Different reasons, nearly all accepted

The Trafi application guidelines for the special permit lists a number of acceptable reasons to be granted the license, including long distances or poor public transport options to reach work or school.

"The exception is meant to help the teens get around," said Antila. "It's meant to fast-track career choices and employment. Finland is a country where the distances between places are long and public transport is inoperative in many regions. Many people need this special permission."

Trafi assesses applications separately to determine the need of individual applicants. Since the law change, only three applications have been rejected.

"We're monitoring the situation to see where it goes," Antila said. "The number of applications wasn't a surprise, even if we didn't exactly anticipate it."

The applications are normally handled within 1-4 weeks. A parent or guardian's permission is needed to apply, and applications may be made up to four months before the applicant's 17th birthday. The fee for the underage permission costs 100 euros.


          Money down the drain: The hidden costs of plumbing renovations in Finland      Cache   Translate Page      

The plumbing renovation on Paul Newill's* apartment building began in January 2015, and he was still dealing with the fall-out in September 2018. Originally projected to last little more than three months, the upgrade on his 61 square-metre apartment became mired in problems and postponements - although he did not even want the refurbishment in the first place.

As is common in Finland, Newill does not own his apartment as such, but rather owns ‘shares’ in the apartment building’s housing company. The residents own and manage the housing company, and communal decisions about issues such as maintenance of pipes, walls and windows are decided by majority vote. When homeowners raised a proposal to renovate the building’s plumbing system at the housing company’s AGM in 2014, Newill voted against it but the majority backed the plan, and the renovation work began.

Reaping the mistakes of the past

The common need for plumbing renovations has its roots in Finland’s rapid urbanisation during the 1960’s and 1970’s, when apartment buildings were hastily erected to meet the demands of a housing crunch. The copper pipes used in the construction of apartment buildings during that period have a maximum lifetime of approximately 50 years, meaning that many thousands of properties will soon require an overhaul.

The Finnish Real Estate Management Federation (Isännöintiliitto) is an umbrella association for 500 real estate management companies and 23 associations, that account for more than two-thirds of real estate management in Finland. The federation's membership in turn covers 40,000 housing companies that manage the apartment homes of 1.5 million people in Finland.

Part of the federation's remit is to ensure that repair projects go according to plan. The organisation told Yle News that members carry out about 1,800 plumbing renovations affecting roughly 108,000 people annually. It said that it doesn't expect these annual numbers to fluctuate much over the coming decade, which means that plumbing renovations will affect over a million people throughout Finland between 2018 and 2028.

Statistics Finland estimates that housing companies spent a total of 747 million euros on water and sewage system renovations in 2016 alone. This figure was up from 629 million in 2015 and 577 million in 2013 with the upward trend expected to continue.

Residents must move out of their home for the duration of the renovation - usually for a period of up to three months - and the work can add tens of thousands of euros debt to their home loans.

The renovation on Newill's building ran into complications almost immediately so that by the time work began on his 5th floor apartment, it was already well behind schedule.

"When the contracted renovation work in my own apartment commenced I still had not received an acceptable price nor drawing plans", he explains. "But the work simply went ahead in an attempt to maintain the timetable."

Disruptions, and delays and sleepless nights

Newill believes this haste led to even further confusion. Each apartment in the building had a unique "apartment card" - attached to the inside of the front door - which detailed the materials chosen and any additional work requested by the apartment owner.

Newill had laid out certain specifications for the renovation of his apartment, including the preservation of certain features as well as the use of other materials he had purchased. However, when he visited the apartment one weekend during the renovation, he noticed that the original features he wanted to keep had been destroyed and the new purchases had disappeared.

He had been due to move back into his apartment in October 2015, but was not permitted to do so until December - yet work still continued on his apartment well into the New Year. As the project progressed, so did his list of grievances: a walk-in closet that should have been removed was instead painted; kitchen plumbing was installed, then removed and reinstalled and a towel heater was fitted in error.

"By that stage I had no enthusiasm for pointing out more mistakes."

The renovation - and the rectification of errors - was eventually deemed by Newill to have been completed in March 2018, fully two and a half years after it first began. He is now embroiled in protracted negotiations for compensation - with associated legal costs - and considers the entire experience hugely stressful and frustrating.

"The waste of my time in attempting to get something to happen has meant many, many nights of not getting to sleep, or waking up and not being able to stop thinking about the mess they had no desire to clear up." Altogether, Newill estimates that the project has added more than 60,000 euros to his home loan and that additional costs could run to many thousands of euros.

New debt, extra flat rental

Originally from Romania, Dezsö Dénes has been living in Finland since 1999 and his apartment in Espoo is currently undergoing renovations. The project began in June and by July Dénes had no option but to move his family to a rented apartment as their home had become uninhabitable.

Dénes must bear the cost of the rental himself, and as he was unable to obtain a nine-week rental lease he must pay for three months - longer than his family needs - plus a four-month water charge. This is on top of the debt added to his home loan.

As if the inconvenience, the additional debt, and the cost of renting another property were not enough, Dénes says he is further frustrated by the fact that his home will not be restored to its previous standard. After renovation work began on Dénes’ apartment, he was informed that certain features of his bathroom, such as the wall tiles and floor heating, would not be re-fitted - unless he paid more.

"My home would be in a worse condition if I did pay not extra. It is exactly the same as if I broke the windshield in your car, and then told you that I will fix it if you pay me."

The contract that Dénes’ housing company agreed with the renovation company only covered the basic renovation, and residents must therefore pay for any specific work or features considered outside the contract. Like Newill, Dénes has speculated that his post-renovation mortgage has swelled by 60,000 euros, while additional out-of-pocket costs will only be fully known when the upgrade is complete.

"I don’t like the system in Finland where you do not own your apartment, but only shares", says Dénes. "The housing association can decide everything by a majority vote. If you are in the minority you just have to shut up and pay."

FREF: Improvements to be made

Homeowners and residents do however have some recourse if they are dissatisfied with their renovation experience, such as to seek advice from the Finnish Real Estate Federation (or Suomen Kiinteistöliitto in Finnish).

FREF’s Development Manager Jari Virta explains that the federation represents property owners and landlords in Finland, and "provides renovation construction advice, arranges training on renovations, and provides instructions, books, and web applications for construction maintenance and renovation."

Virta says he recognises that the entire system and process of plumbing renovations needs to be further analysed, and changes made where needed, and he advises households to "invest in trusted professionals to carry out the work, and the acquisition of a qualified project manager is of paramount importance."

However he concedes that the time may have come to revisit the current system that has been in place for decades.

"There are certainly improvements to be made, from starting at the very beginning by increasing clients’ know-how to improving the solutions offered by the service providers."

          Home rentals becoming more popular in Finland      Cache   Translate Page      

More and more householders live in rented homes, Finland’s statistical agency says. According to figures released on Wednesday, about one-third of household dwelling units, or 878,000, were rented and occupied by some 1.4 million persons last year.

The growth in rental housing was particularly high in the private market, where the number of households in non-subsidised dwellings increased by six percent.

By contrast, the number of affordable homes subsidised by the Housing Finance and Development Centre Ara fell by two percent, the agency says. This is due to new regulations which allow old subsidised homes to be transferred to the private market or re-classified as owner-occupied units.

The highest growth occurred in Helsinki where 4,200 more households lived in rented dwellings in 2017 compared with the previous year. Tampere and Vantaa also saw considerable increases, the agency said.

Rental homes are particularly popular in densely-populated areas and university towns, and among 20-29-year-olds, the figures show.

A housing reportreleased by Parliament on Tuesday says the Helsinki region in particular suffers from a shortage of affordable homes, as the stock of subsidised housing has decreased sharply in the past decades.

In July, a rule requiring buyers to put down a deposit of 15 percent of the home price came into force. Previously, up to 90 percent of the price could be covered by a loan.

          Finnish police, Border Guard join exercises to combat terrorism at sea      Cache   Translate Page      

Finland's Police Rapid Response Unit and Border Guard are participating in an international anti-terrorist training operation in the Baltic Sea this week, according to the Helsinki police department. The exercises are taking place in German waters and involve responding to the staged naval hijacking of a German ship.

The exercises by police agency Europol aim to test the capabilities of Finland and eight other European countries in real-life hostile crises.

The hijacking exercise is part of a two-day series of anti-terrorist training drills collectively called the Atlas Common Challenge. The operations brought together a total of 38 member units from the EU-wide ATLAS network of tactical police units, founded in 2001.

Scenarios recreated in the Atlas Challenge include bus and metro hijackings as well as attacks in public spaces. Finland's units only took part in the boat hijacking exercise, nicknamed Triton.

Detective inspector Jari Kaikko from the Helsinki police department said in a release that during the exercises alert came without warning and without prior knowledge of the location of the orchestrated attack.

"Our first response is to move the units out to the location as soon as the call is received," he said. "Then we review the situation, begin reconnaissance and plan out a course of action."

Kaikko said the exercise includes practicing first aid on board and transporting wounded police ashore.

          Meat processing firm HKScan to sack 165 workers      Cache   Translate Page      

Meat and food producer HKScan will terminate 165 jobs following the co-operation negotiations launched in June.

The terminations will affect the company’s production and logistics facilities in Vantaa, Forssa, Mikkeli, Paimio and Outokumpu. In the largest unit in Vantaa 72 workers will lose their jobs while 55 positions will be cut in Forssa.

In addition, seasonally-based layoffs in some locations will take place outside of the Christmas ham and summer grilling seasons.

“We got plenty of valuable insights and suggestions from employee teams reviewing the streamlining needs,” Sami Sivuranta from HKScan said in a press release.

The reduction in workforce is expected to save HKScan seven million euros per year. In all, restructuring production is part of HKScan’s aim to generate annual savings of 40 million euros by 2020.

Last year, the company had net sales of 1.8 billion euros and an operating loss of 40 million euros. HKScan employs about 7,300 people and sells meat and other food products under brands like HK, Scan, Rakvere, Kariniemen, Rose, Pärsons and Tallegg. The firm sells products in Finland, Sweden, Denmark and the Baltic countries, exporting goods to a total of nearly 50 countries, according to the company.

World War II involved tens of millions of soldiers and cost sixty million lives—an average of twenty-seven thousand a day. For thirty-five years, Max Hastings has researched and written about different aspects of the war. Now, for the first time, he gives us a magnificent, single-volume history of the entire war.  Through his strikingly detailed stories of everyday people—of soldiers, sailors and airmen; British housewives and Indian peasants; SS killers and the citizens of Leningrad, some of whom resorted to cannibalism during the two-year siege; Japanese suicide pilots and American carrier crews—Hastings provides a singularly intimate portrait of the world at war. He simultaneously traces the major developments—Hitler’s refusal to retreat from the Soviet Union until it was too late; Stalin’s ruthlessness in using his greater population to wear down the German army; Churchill’s leadership in the dark days of 1940 and 1941; Roosevelt’s steady hand before and after the United States entered the war—and puts them in real human context. Hastings also illuminates some of the darker and less explored regions under the war’s penumbra, including the conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland, during which the Finns fiercely and surprisingly resisted Stalin’s invading Red Army; and the Bengal famine in 1943 and 1944, when at least one million people died in what turned out to be, in Nehru’s words, “the final epitaph of British rule” in India.  Remarkably informed and wide-ranging, Inferno is both elegantly written and cogently argued. Above all, it is a new and essential understanding of one of the greatest and bloodiest events of the twentieth century.

          NEWS: Arctic wildlife remains at risk from contaminants: new report      Cache   Translate Page      
Despite global moves to restrict the industrial production of mercury and persistent organic pollutants, levels of these chemicals remain elevated in some top predator species in the Arctic. That’s according to a new Arctic Council report, released one day before Arctic environment ministers meet Oct. 11 and Oct. 12 in Rovaniemi, Finland. The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme report says levels of mercury, and polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, remain “a significant exposure
          The Internet is 24x7. Carbon-free energy should be too.      Cache   Translate Page      

Electricity is the fuel that allows our data centers to deliver billions of Google searches, YouTube views, and much more—every single day, around the clock. Our commitment to carbon-free energy should be around the clock too.

Today we published an inside look at the sources of Google's electricity around the globe, to gauge how we're tracking toward our long-term aspiration of sourcing carbon-free energy on a truly 24x7 basis. Our new discussion paper highlights how some of our data centers—like the one in Hamina, Finland—are already performing remarkably well on this front. The paper shares location-specific “Carbon Heat Maps” to visualize how well a data center is matched with carbon-free energy on an hour-by-hour basis. For Hamina, a heat map shows that 97 percent of the facility’s electricity use last year was matched with carbon-free sources.

carbon-free_blog-asset_Finland-heatmap.jpg

Last year, 97 percent of our Finland data center’s electricity use was matched on an hourly basis with carbon-free sources.

The predominance of carbon-free energy at our Finland data center is partly due to Google’s purchases of wind energy in the Nordic region. Indeed, our large-scale procurement of wind and solar power worldwide is a cornerstone of our sustainability efforts, and has made Google the world’s largest corporate buyer of renewable energy. Last year we matched 100 percent of our annual electricity consumption with renewable energy purchases, and will continue to do so as we grow.

In many cases, we’ve partnered with local utilities and governments to increase the supply of renewable energy in the regions where we operate. For example, near our data center in Lenoir, NC, we worked with our local electricity supplier to establish one of the first utility solar purchase programs in the U.S. Solar alone, however, is unable to provide electricity around the clock. When the sun is shining, our Lenoir data center is quite carbon-free (indicated by the midday green ribbon in the Carbon Heat Map below), but at nighttime it’s more carbon-intensive; we plan to tackle this issue in the coming years by procuring additional types of carbon-free energy.

carbon-free_blog-asset_NC-heatmap.jpg

Last year, 67 percent of our North Carolina data center’s electricity use was matched on an hourly basis with carbon-free sources.

The Carbon Heat Maps demonstrate that there are times and places where our electricity profile is not yet fully carbon-free. They suggest that our 100 percent renewable energy purchasing goal—which relies on buying surplus renewable energy when it’s sunny and windy, to offset the lack of renewable energy supply in other situations—is an important first step toward achieving a fully carbon-free future. Ultimately, we aspire to source carbon-free energy for our operations in all places, at all times.

Creating a carbon-free future will be no easy feat, but the urgency of climate change demands bold solutions. Our discussion paper identifies several key actions that we and the rest of the world must take—including doubling down on renewable energy purchases in a greater number of regions—to achieve 24x7 carbon-free energy. We have our work cut out for us and couldn’t be more excited to push forward.


          Going behind the design of the new Chromecast      Cache   Translate Page      

The She Word is a Keyword series all about dynamic and creative women at Google, and we recently spoke to two women behind the design of the new Chromecast, which hit shelves this week. Diana Chang and Katie Morgenroth are industrial designers tasked with designing hardware that fits naturally into your home. Below, we share how they tackle that challenge, as well as what’s in store for our favorite macaron-sized Made by Google device.  

Elisabeth: How do you explain your job at a dinner party?

Diana: I make tech less intimidating, more approachable, and easier to use—building a bridge between the consumer and the technology they’re using.

Katie: These days, I’m focused on creating the conditions to help our amazing design team feel inspired and supported to do their best work. Framing design sprints, working closely with engineers to unblock challenging constraints and collaborating with the team to ensure our products are harmonious and beautiful are all in a day's work.

SheWord-9801.jpg

Diana (left) and Katie (right) in their office at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View.

What are you most excited about with the new Chromecast? How is it different than what we’ve seen before?

D: Chromecast was our first-ever Made by Google product, and the foundation of our Cast technology. It was created way before our other hardware products, so we’ve updated the new Chromecast to make it look and feel more a part of the Google hardware family. It’s a small device, and the biggest improvements are actually in the tiny details. And those details can say a lot about a brand and how much we care about the people who use our products.

K: The new design of Chromecast is all about simplicity; it looks like a little macaron. And it’s coming out in two new colors—Chalk and Charcoal—to match other devices in the Made by Google family. With all of our hardware devices, we want to make sure that they feel like they’re a part of your home.

D: And because of the low cost (it’s still $35!), Chromecast remains an easy entry point for people to experience the power of smart home entertainment.

SheWord-9829.jpg

Here it is! The new Chromecast is now available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Singapore, with more regions to come. In the U.S., you can buy it for $35 at the Google Store, Best Buy, Target, Walmart and even more retailers.

SheWord-9812.jpg

What sets Chromecast (and Made by Google products) apart from other devices?

D: The design language: it’s the reason I wanted to join Google. We’re making tech that is approachable, human-centric and easily blends in with other things in your house.

K: Echo Diana. Our aesthetic is taking a counter stance to what we traditionally think about when we imagine technology. We are carefully designing our products to look beautiful as a family or individually.

How would you describe Made by Google design aesthetic in one word?

K: Can I have two? Approachable and optimistic.

D: I would love to hear our customers describe it as sincere and honest.

What’s a challenge you face as an industrial designer?

D: Design is a form of art—unlike math, there’s no way to quantify if design is good or bad, right or wrong. And sometimes, it’s hard to explain a design decision to logical thinkers.

Do you do other types of art too?

D: Yes, art is a stress release for me—you don’t have to worry about specs or cost or whether people will like it. I love ceramics because every piece is unique. Clay has its own personality–you can’t really control it like plastic, rather, respect, understand and work together.

What’s one habit that makes you successful?

D: Hmm, well it’s hard to evaluate what “successful” means, but I’ll tell you what makes me different: my background. Growing up, I moved a lot and lived in different countries. Industrial design is a highly diverse field, and each of us brings a bit of our culture and background to the table. I make it a point to go to one new country every year—it helps me get a different perspective and think outside the box.

K: This is a more boring than Diana’s answer, but I am an avid notetaker. I’m always distracted by something and I need to take notes to keep my inspiration and ideas organized. My wrist is a common spot for quick thoughts and I couldn’t live without Google Keep. I also sleep with a notebook beside my bed, just in case an idea pops up in a dream.

Do you have any advice for aspiring designers?

K: Struggle through the uncomfortable time until it makes sense.

Was there a time that you had to apply that lesson while designing Chromecast?

K: Oh, definitely. We had to work through a lot of tricky requirements in order to keep the size compact and form simple. As often happens, our original intent evolved a bit, but we love the final result. As designers, we pride ourselves on our ability to keep an open mind and meet challenges with opportunities.

          Schengen visa applications in Russia increase by 22 percent      Cache   Translate Page      
As many as 3,885,899 Russian citizens applied for a visa at Schengen embassies in 2017. The number marked an increase by 708,278 people (23%) in comparison with 2016, a recent report released by SchengenVisaInfo.com said. This growth had also affected the Russians' percentage share of global Schengen visa application during 2016 and 2017. In 2017 these applicants shared almost the quarter (24%) of the total applications worldwide, while in 2016 Russians amounted to 21% of the total number of Schengen visa applications globally. In 2017, most Russians went to Finland embassies to apply for Schengen visa. Official recordings show that the consulate in St. Petersburg received more than half a million of visa applications. Exactly 591,581 Russians filed a Schengen visa application at the Finland embassy during that year. That's much higher than 355,612 applications that this consulate received the year before. Other Finland's consulates located in Moscow and in Murmansk (in northern Russia) contributed with 70,718 respectively 27,636 visa applications.
          Elon Musk has to step down as the chairman of Tesla's board — here are 8 people who could replace him (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page      

al gore

  • As a result of a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Tesla CEO Elon Musk will have to step down as the chairman of the automaker's board of directors for three years.
  • Tesla's board has been criticized for failing to hold Musk accountable for erratic behavior that has at times caused the company's stock price to fall.
  • The Financial Times reported on Wednesday that current Tesla director James Murdoch is the leading candidate to become the board's next chairman.
  • Other possible candidates include Al Gore, Warren Buffett, and Alan Mulally.

 

As a result of a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Tesla CEO Elon Musk will have to step down as the chairman of the automaker's board of directors for three years. Musk has held the position since the automaker was founded in 2003.

The settlement came after the SEC filed a lawsuit against Musk, accusing him of making "false and misleading statements" in August about the possibility of taking Tesla private. Musk said he was "deeply saddened and disappointed" by the lawsuit, which he called "unjustified," but it may end up working in Tesla's favor.

Musk has received criticism for his erratic behavior this year, which has included joking about the company's financial situation, sparring with Wall Street analysts on an earnings call, accusing a British diver of being a pedophile without offering evidence, and even taking aim at the SEC just four days after his settlement with the government agency.

A company's board of directors is supposed to oversee its management team and make sure it's working in the best interests of the company's shareholders. But some have criticized Tesla's directors, many of whom have connections to Musk's other businesses, for failing to hold Musk accountable for behavior that has at times caused the company's stock price to fall. A new director could help the board repair its reputation.

But the job won't be easy. Tesla employees have described Musk as a stubborn, demanding, and temperamental boss. Tesla's new chairman will be tasked with steering Musk from his worst impulses without suppressing a leadership style employees have said inspires them to operate at their best. 

The Financial Times reported on Wednesday that current Tesla director James Murdoch is the leading candidate to become the board's next chairman. Like chairman candidates floated by Recode founder Kara Swisher and publications like Bloomberg, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, he has experience in highly-visible, pressure-filled positions. 

Here are eight possible candidates to be the next chairman of Tesla's board of directors.

          Kimi by Ludy em palavras - Semana Kimi Räikkönen 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
E finalmente chegamos ao começo da Semana Kimi Räikkönen 2018, a 10ª edição.

Farei dois posts diários, uma variação do meu Kimi by Ludy só que em palavras e fotos.

Espero que curtam!!!


"Kimi by Ludy em palavras..."

Se eu tivesse que descrever o piloto Kimi Räikkönen para que todos entendessem o quão especial ele é, as palavras abaixo perfeitas seriam.

- Leal: não há e nunca houve em Kimi em todo a sua carreira, uma única vez em que ele foi desleal com seus adversários. É uma das características que mais admiro nele.

- Fodástico: a carreira dele fala por si só, mas é sempre bom lembrar o quão talentoso o finlandês é quando falamos do que ele é capaz de fazer nas pistas. 

Como a gente esquece o GP do Japão 2005, Bélgica 2007, 2008 ou 2009 (com um carro inferior), Abu Dhabi 2012 ou Cingapura 2013, quando ele largou da 13ª posição e chegou em 3º com aquela insuportável dor nas costas?

- Preciso: a forma como Kimi pilota, como ele é capaz de guiar sob as mais diversas e difíceis circunstâncias sem jamais perder o controle, é algo que até hoje me encanta.

 - Rápido: Até o momento, são 46 melhores voltas no currículo, perdendo apenas para Schumacher com 77. Mas os números na verdade não são o mais importante, o que eu gosto de ressaltar é que Kimi nunca precisou de carros dominantes para ser mais rápidos, se ele está onde está é porque conseguiu no braço.

- Arrojado: O Iceman é sim cuidadoso na sua pilotagem, mas não confunda isto com falta de arrojo. Ele sempre ataca e sabe exatamente a hora de fazê-lo. Ao longo de todos estes anos vimos Kimi se arriscar inclusive em momentos decisivos, às vezes dando certo, como Japão 2005 ou dando errado, como Bélgica 2008. Mas ele sempre luta pela vitória.

- Técnico: Muitas pessoas veem Kimi como um piloto "burro", acham que ele não sabe passar feedback para seus engenheiros, que ele é preguiçoso. Estas pessoas não poderiam estar mais enganadas. 

Räikkönen é preciso nas informações que fornece ao seu time, ele vai direto ao ponto e tem pleno conhecimento de como seu carro funciona. Ele só não precisa de uma reunião de 4 horas para explicar isto. Com ele é rápido e rasteiro, direto ao ponto. E todos que trabalham ou trabalharam com ele sabem disto.

- Lutador: Como a palavra finlandesa Sisu mesma define, aquele sentimento de não desistir jamais, não importa as circunstâncias. Kimi tem isto para dar e vender. Desde pequenino no kart. É uma das características que mais admiro nele. Nunca desista, jamais!

Astfel, 92 de milioane de euro din partea Fondului European de Dezvoltare Regională vor finanţa soluţii inovatoare pentru abordarea provocărilor urbane, cum ar fi calitatea aerului, schimbările climatice, locuinţele, locurile de muncă şi competenţele pentru economia locală. Oraşele care au primit finanţare şi domeniile sunt: locuri de muncă şi competenţe în cadrul economiei locale: Aveiro (Portugalia), Cluj-Napoca (România), Cuenca (Spania), Eindhoven (Olanda), Vantaa (Finlanda), Ventspils (Letonia); adaptarea la schimbările climatice: Amsterdam (Olanda), Barcelona (Spania), Manchester (Marea Britanie), Riba-roja de Túria (Spania), Sevilla (Spania), Paris (Franţa); calitatea aerului: metropola Aix-Marseille Provence (Franţa), Breda (Olanda), Helsinki (Finlanda), Ostrava (Cehia), Portici (Italia); locuinţe: Bruxelles (Belgia), Budapesta (Ungaria), Gent (Belgia), Mataró (Spania), metropola Lyon (Franţa). Printre exemplele de proiecte se numără noi soluţii pentru a reduce riscul de incendii periurbane în Riba-roja de Túria, Spania, o nouă generaţie de sisteme de alimentare cu energie bazate pe baterii electrice în Breda, Olanda, locuri de joacă şcolare rezistente în cazul valurilor de căldură în Paris, Franţa, locuinţe sociale eficiente din punct de vedere energetic în Budapesta, Ungaria şi orientare profesională inovatoare în Ventspils, Letonia. De asemenea, miercuri, CE a lansat cea de-a patra cerere de propuneri în cadrul acţiunilor urbane inovatoare. 100 de milioane de euro sunt acum disponibile pentru oraşe pentru a finanţa proiecte inovatoare de protejare şi reducere a vulnerabilităţii spaţiilor publice, după cum s-a anunţat în Planul de acţiune din 2017 în cadrul Agendei europene privind securitatea. De asemenea, în urma cererii de propuneri, vor fi finanţate proiecte digitale, de mediu şi de incluziune. "Prin aceste cereri de proiecte, transformăm oraşele din UE în laboratoare reale pentru a testa soluţii care au potenţialul de a îmbunătăţi calitatea vieţii în toate oraşele lumii. Şi deoarece securitatea urbană şi siguranţa spaţiilor publice au devenit o preocupare crucială pentru cetăţeni, după tragicele atacuri teroriste din ultimii ani, acum sprijinim oraşele în eforturile lor de a-şi proteja locuitorii", a declarat comisarul pentru politică regională, Corina Creţu.

Obduktio es el producto de la locura generada por tres amantes del ruido procedentes de Finlandia. Esta banda lanza al mercado su tercer trabajo a través de Caligari Records que siempre es una garantía. Este sello americano trabaja muy bien el Underground en todas sus variantes y siempre es garantía de éxito pues en su roster buscan bandas con mucha personalidad.
Después del tema Ihmistarha me queda claro lo que busca esta banda. Tienen un estilo indefinido que mezcla desde partes lentas de Black Metal mezcladas con Noise en este tema o en temas como Napalmia esa parte lenta de Black es mezclada con una atmósfera de Blackened Death por ejemplo, en común ambos temas tienen que les une la distorsión. Este es un elemento común a todos los temas, la distorsión es tan sucia que roza el Noise o se instala directamente en este subgénero.
No hay ni un solo instrumento en este trabajo que se escuche de forma nítida, porque lo que buscan es recrear una atmósfera que sea una espesa capa de mugre que otorga carácter y personalidad a los temas. Pero no nos dejemos embargar por la emoción ni por la enorme virulencia de esta banda y analicemos con lupa como siempre hacemos en Metalbrothers.es.
Varios temas llaman la atención Kuka? Es uno de los mas caóticos, aquí se hace evidente la esencia del Punk con la base rítmica y la aceleración es la típica del Grindcore, lo mismo se puede decir de Väkivallan Eskalaatio.
A medida que va sucediéndose los temas van entrando mas en dinámica de una banda de Grindcore con el típico esquema de temas cortos y directos al grano con velocidad, ritmos Punk en la base rítmica y esa tonalidad mas baja en los riffs de la guitarra.
Si hablamos de temas caóticos hay que señalar a Mustat Siipene como el mas caótico de todos, imposible encasillarlo en un estilo musical, dejémoslo en que es un cruce entre Blackened Death con mucho de Crust, Grindcore y Punk, clásico tema de los años ochenta, es como intentar llevar el legado de bandas alocadas como Sadistik Execution todavía mas lejos pues eso es lo que intenta Obduktio en cada uno de sus temas.
Lo malo es que debajo de tanta distorsión que es como una capa de maquillaje y lo que le confiere agresividad y cáracter a esta banda se esconde una falta de técnica mas que evidente y sobre todo se esconde una estructura de temas que peca de ser demasiado lineal. Parece algo revolucionario pero si eres veterano comprobarás que esto de revolucionario no tiene absolutamente nada que debajo de tanta distorsión se esconde una simple mezcla de estilos y bastante conservadurismo en el plano creativo pero aún así es un disco que divierte por momentos.

Childhood aggression and the co-occurrence of behavioural and emotional problems: results across ages 3-16 years from multiple raters in six cohorts in the EU-ACTION project.

Eur Child Adolesc Psychiatry. 2018 Sep;27(9):1105-1121

Abstract
Childhood aggression and its resulting consequences inflict a huge burden on affected children, their relatives, teachers, peers and society as a whole. Aggression during childhood rarely occurs in isolation and is correlated with other symptoms of childhood psychopathology. In this paper, we aim to describe and improve the understanding of the co-occurrence of aggression with other forms of childhood psychopathology. We focus on the co-occurrence of aggression and other childhood behavioural and emotional problems, including other externalising problems, attention problems and anxiety-depression. The data were brought together within the EU-ACTION (Aggression in Children: unravelling gene-environment interplay to inform Treatment and InterventiON strategies) project. We analysed the co-occurrence of aggression and other childhood behavioural and emotional problems as a function of the child's age (ages 3 through 16 years), gender, the person rating the behaviour (father, mother or self) and assessment instrument. The data came from six large population-based European cohort studies from the Netherlands (2x), the UK, Finland and Sweden (2x). Multiple assessment instruments, including the Child Behaviour Checklist (CBCL), the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and Multidimensional Peer Nomination Inventory (MPNI), were used. There was a good representation of boys and girls in each age category, with data for 30,523 3- to 4-year-olds (49.5% boys), 20,958 5- to 6-year-olds (49.6% boys), 18,291 7- to 8-year-olds (49.0% boys), 27,218 9- to 10-year-olds (49.4% boys), 18,543 12- to 13-year-olds (48.9% boys) and 10,088 15- to 16-year-olds (46.6% boys). We replicated the well-established gender differences in average aggression scores at most ages for parental ratings. The gender differences decreased with age and were not present for self-reports. Aggression co-occurred with the majority of other behavioural and social problems, from both externalising and internalising domains. At each age, the co-occurrence was particularly prevalent for aggression and oppositional and ADHD-related problems, with correlations of around 0.5 in general. Aggression also showed substantial associations with anxiety-depression and other internalizing symptoms (correlations around 0.4). Co-occurrence for self-reported problems was somewhat higher than for parental reports, but we found neither rater differences, nor differences across assessment instruments in co-occurrence patterns. There were large similarities in co-occurrence patterns across the different European countries. Finally, co-occurrence was generally stable across age and sex, and if any change was observed, it indicated stronger correlations when children grew older. We present an online tool to visualise these associations as a function of rater, gender, instrument and cohort. In addition, we present a description of the full EU-ACTION projects, its first results and the future perspectives.

          The Internet is 24x7. Carbon-free energy should be too.      Cache   Translate Page      

Electricity is the fuel that allows our data centers to deliver billions of Google searches, YouTube views, and much more—every single day, around the clock. Our commitment to carbon-free energy should be around the clock too.

Today we published an inside look at the sources of Google's electricity around the globe, to gauge how we're tracking toward our long-term aspiration of sourcing carbon-free energy on a truly 24x7 basis. Our new discussion paper highlights how some of our data centers—like the one in Hamina, Finland—are already performing remarkably well on this front. The paper shares location-specific “Carbon Heat Maps” to visualize how well a data center is matched with carbon-free energy on an hour-by-hour basis. For Hamina, a heat map shows that 97 percent of the facility’s electricity use last year was matched with carbon-free sources.

carbon-free_blog-asset_Finland-heatmap.jpg

Last year, 97 percent of our Finland data center’s electricity use was matched on an hourly basis with carbon-free sources.

The predominance of carbon-free energy at our Finland data center is partly due to Google’s purchases of wind energy in the Nordic region. Indeed, our large-scale procurement of wind and solar power worldwide is a cornerstone of our sustainability efforts, and has made Google the world’s largest corporate buyer of renewable energy. Last year we matched 100 percent of our annual electricity consumption with renewable energy purchases, and will continue to do so as we grow.

In many cases, we’ve partnered with local utilities and governments to increase the supply of renewable energy in the regions where we operate. For example, near our data center in Lenoir, NC, we worked with our local electricity supplier to establish one of the first utility solar purchase programs in the U.S. Solar alone, however, is unable to provide electricity around the clock. When the sun is shining, our Lenoir data center is quite carbon-free (indicated by the midday green ribbon in the Carbon Heat Map below), but at nighttime it’s more carbon-intensive; we plan to tackle this issue in the coming years by procuring additional types of carbon-free energy.

carbon-free_blog-asset_NC-heatmap.jpg

Last year, 67 percent of our North Carolina data center’s electricity use was matched on an hourly basis with carbon-free sources.

The Carbon Heat Maps demonstrate that there are times and places where our electricity profile is not yet fully carbon-free. They suggest that our 100 percent renewable energy purchasing goal—which relies on buying surplus renewable energy when it’s sunny and windy, to offset the lack of renewable energy supply in other situations—is an important first step toward achieving a fully carbon-free future. Ultimately, we aspire to source carbon-free energy for our operations in all places, at all times.

Creating a carbon-free future will be no easy feat, but the urgency of climate change demands bold solutions. Our discussion paper identifies several key actions that we and the rest of the world must take—including doubling down on renewable energy purchases in a greater number of regions—to achieve 24x7 carbon-free energy. We have our work cut out for us and couldn’t be more excited to push forward.


          Going behind the design of the new Chromecast      Cache   Translate Page      

The She Word is a Keyword series all about dynamic and creative women at Google, and we recently spoke to two women behind the design of the new Chromecast, which hit shelves this week. Diana Chang and Katie Morgenroth are industrial designers tasked with designing hardware that fits naturally into your home. Below, we share how they tackle that challenge, as well as what’s in store for our favorite macaron-sized Made by Google device.  

Elisabeth: How do you explain your job at a dinner party?

Diana: I make tech less intimidating, more approachable, and easier to use—building a bridge between the consumer and the technology they’re using.

Katie: These days, I’m focused on creating the conditions to help our amazing design team feel inspired and supported to do their best work. Framing design sprints, working closely with engineers to unblock challenging constraints and collaborating with the team to ensure our products are harmonious and beautiful are all in a day's work.

SheWord-9801.jpg

Diana (left) and Katie (right) in their office at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View.

What are you most excited about with the new Chromecast? How is it different than what we’ve seen before?

D: Chromecast was our first-ever Made by Google product, and the foundation of our Cast technology. It was created way before our other hardware products, so we’ve updated the new Chromecast to make it look and feel more a part of the Google hardware family. It’s a small device, and the biggest improvements are actually in the tiny details. And those details can say a lot about a brand and how much we care about the people who use our products.

K: The new design of Chromecast is all about simplicity; it looks like a little macaron. And it’s coming out in two new colors—Chalk and Charcoal—to match other devices in the Made by Google family. With all of our hardware devices, we want to make sure that they feel like they’re a part of your home.

D: And because of the low cost (it’s still $35!), Chromecast remains an easy entry point for people to experience the power of smart home entertainment.

SheWord-9829.jpg

Here it is! The new Chromecast is now available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Singapore, with more regions to come. In the U.S., you can buy it for $35 at the Google Store, Best Buy, Target, Walmart and even more retailers.

SheWord-9812.jpg

What sets Chromecast (and Made by Google products) apart from other devices?

D: The design language: it’s the reason I wanted to join Google. We’re making tech that is approachable, human-centric and easily blends in with other things in your house.

K: Echo Diana. Our aesthetic is taking a counter stance to what we traditionally think about when we imagine technology. We are carefully designing our products to look beautiful as a family or individually.

How would you describe Made by Google design aesthetic in one word?

K: Can I have two? Approachable and optimistic.

D: I would love to hear our customers describe it as sincere and honest.

What’s a challenge you face as an industrial designer?

D: Design is a form of art—unlike math, there’s no way to quantify if design is good or bad, right or wrong. And sometimes, it’s hard to explain a design decision to logical thinkers.

Do you do other types of art too?

D: Yes, art is a stress release for me—you don’t have to worry about specs or cost or whether people will like it. I love ceramics because every piece is unique. Clay has its own personality–you can’t really control it like plastic, rather, respect, understand and work together.

What’s one habit that makes you successful?

D: Hmm, well it’s hard to evaluate what “successful” means, but I’ll tell you what makes me different: my background. Growing up, I moved a lot and lived in different countries. Industrial design is a highly diverse field, and each of us brings a bit of our culture and background to the table. I make it a point to go to one new country every year—it helps me get a different perspective and think outside the box.

K: This is a more boring than Diana’s answer, but I am an avid notetaker. I’m always distracted by something and I need to take notes to keep my inspiration and ideas organized. My wrist is a common spot for quick thoughts and I couldn’t live without Google Keep. I also sleep with a notebook beside my bed, just in case an idea pops up in a dream.

Do you have any advice for aspiring designers?

K: Struggle through the uncomfortable time until it makes sense.

Was there a time that you had to apply that lesson while designing Chromecast?

K: Oh, definitely. We had to work through a lot of tricky requirements in order to keep the size compact and form simple. As often happens, our original intent evolved a bit, but we love the final result. As designers, we pride ourselves on our ability to keep an open mind and meet challenges with opportunities.

A dog urinates on images of pro-Brexit supporters Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson as dog owners and their pets gather before participating in a pro-EU, anti-Brexit march, calling for a "People's Vote on Brexit", in central London on October 7, 2018. - Britain voted narrowly to leave the EU in a divisive 2016 referendum and is set to leave in March next year. The main force calling for a second referendum is the cross-party People's Vote campaign -- the successor of the official Remain campaign from the 2016 referendum.

 

On Monday 1st October, the British Embassy in Helsinki addressed a gathering of concerned British nationals on the current state of Brexit negotiations, in the form of a “town hall meeting” intended to assuage growing concerns. The result was a tense 2-hour session involving insults, straw polls and heated debates that bitterly exposed the current state of anxiety among Brits in Europe.

On an unseasonably warm afternoon, expats from across Finland gathered in the crypt of the imposing Mikael Agricola Church in Punavuori, all in search of clarity. Given the troubled state of negotiations between the UK and the EU, which have been deadlocked for months, it was hoped that the ambassador may be able to shed some light on the situation.

Antigym® or Antigymastique® is a body work method developed by French physiotherapist Thérèse Bertherat in the 1970s. Its popularity has spread outside of France as Antigym practitioners have brought the method across the world, particularly to South America and Europe.

The Finnish government’s notification concerning the distance sales of alcoholic beverages has been rejected by the European Commission.

The European Commission published its detailed opinion on the notification on Tuesday, viewing that the measures laid out in the notification are partly excessive and would constitute a quantitative restriction on the free movement of goods as a “de jure discrimination against imported alcoholic beverages”.

The Finnish Commerce Federation reveals that its long-term objective is to abolish the retail monopoly of Alko, the state-owned importer, producer and retailer of alcoholic beverages.

“Our objective is to see the monopoly break down, to allow alcohol sales in all grocery shops. But that’s probably a slightly longer-term objective. Because it’s a longer-term objective, we of course think we should first bring […] wines to grocery shops and take it from there,” Juhani Pekkala, the CEO of the Finnish Commerce Federation, tells Uusi Suomi.

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) newly published report is a cold shower for the forest policy of Finland, views the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation (SLL).

The IPCC emphasises in its widely discussed report that emissions cuts alone will not suffice to keep global warming below the crucial threshold of 1.5ºC, but that governments must also step up their efforts to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by investing in natural and artificial carbon sinks.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches seem like a strange combination to some people.

"I have lived in both Finland and the US. Once I woke up in the middle of the day after a house party. I got up and found peanut butter in a cabinet and jam in the fridge.

"As I started making a classic PB&J the other people in the house surrounded me and gave me a face of confusion. Someone asked me, 'Wait... you are really going to eat that?' I guess people in Finland do not eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. They all thought the idea was gross." — Reddit user amsenaia
