          «En España no comemos a deshora ni cenamos tarde. El cambio de hora fracturaría el país»      Cache   Translate Page      
En España no comemos a deshora, no cenamos tarde y no tenemos un horario anómalo. Este es uno de los (falsos) mitos más extendidos que un grupo de expertos en cambio horario analizaron en unas jornadas celebradas este martes en Santiago. Al frente de los ponentes, científicos como el físico gallego Jorge Mira o como el director del Observatorio Astronómico de Lisboa, Rui Jorge Agostinho, trataron de rebatir creencias que carecen de base real, pero que se han colado en el ideario popular hasta hacer pensar a muchos ciudadanos que los españoles no vivimos con la hora que nos corresponde. «Y nada más equivocado que eso, porque ya estamos en nuestro punto de equilibrio solar», asumen. Para acercar a la calle cuestiones que requieren de unos conocimientos científicos avanzados y que tienen en cuenta factores como la rotación de la tierra, Jorge Mira —miembro de la comisión española que estudia la pertinencia de los cambios de hora— tira de pedagogía y ejemplos prácticos. «En España comemos a las 14-15 horas, cuando el sol alcanza su posición más alta. Son unas tres horas antes de que anochezca en invierno, lo mismo que hace un italiano, un polaco o un sueco», evidenció. Por eso, el experto gallego defiende «sin lugar a dudas» que no se modifique el huso horario español y que el cambio de hora que se realiza dos veces al año se mantenga como vía para que la sociedad viva acompasada con el sol. De la misma opinión son Jorge Agostinho y también José María Martín Olalla, experto en el estudio de bases de datos del uso del tiempo de la población. Todos ellos coinciden al señalar que «debemos quedarnos como estamos porque las sociedades no son idiotas» y han sabido «encontrar su punto de equilibrio». Encendido debate La polémica cuestión, que incluso ha suscitado un encendido debate en el seno de la Unión Europea, no tienen ventajas según los expertos. «Si se cambia la hora, y dejamos el horario de verano o el de invierno, necesitaremos años para volver a encontrar nuestro equilibro», apuntó Mira. Su afirmación fue refrendada por el científico luso, que planteó que no habría mejoras —y sí afectación— en sectores como la industria, el turismo, los mercados o la propia educación. Y para probar las consecuencias directas que esta modificación tendría en las vidas de la gente revelan que, de mantener el horario de invierno, en lugares como Barcelona habría cuatro meses al año en los que amanecería antes de las 6. «Y a esa hora no estamos trabajando ni haciendo vida. Sería meter en un problema a la gente», afirman. Por la contra, si en Galicia se mantuviese el horario de verano habría meses en los que no saldría el sol antes de las 10. Además, indican, este cambio representaría «una fractura» en el país. A favor, y en contra En torno a una cuestión que la Comisión Europea puso sobre la mesa en base a una encuesta on line realizada entre ciudadanos europeos, la comunidad científica es clara. «Esto no se puede hacer a golpe de like, sino con estudios de calado», reprochan dejando patente la posición de países como España o Portugal en este debate, que la Unión Europea abandona hasta la próxima legislatura pese a las prisas iniciales. Y es que, pese a la expectación lograda, la propuesta de Jean Claude Juncker palidece por momentos ante la oposición de los representantes de Irlanda, Países Bajos, Portugal o Eslovaquia, que no acaban de encontrar los beneficios que aportaría a sus habitantes. En la otra cara de la moneda, países del norte como Suecia, Finlandia o la propia Alemania se mantiene en pie de guerra en pro de un horario de verano permanente. «Aprovechemos el Brexit para cambiar la hora en septiembre y no en octubre» Los expertos defienden que se mantenga el cambio estacional de hora porque el planeta cambia de posición y la sociedad debe acomodarse a esa nueva posición solar. Pero sí aprovechan el debate para reclamar un cambio sustancial: que la hora cambie en septiembre y no a finales de octubre. Una tradición «británica» que no se explica por el desfase que provoca entre la gente. Así, y aprovechando «la oportunidad histórica que supone el Brexit», solicitan adelantar el cambio de manillas del reloj a septiembre, lo que permitiría una adaptación «menos traumática» que hacerlo a finales de octubre por la pérdida de luz repentina a última hora y viceversa por la mañana. Tenemos la opción de acabar con «esta tradición inglesa, que no es la de los pueblos del continente», indicaron los expertos reunidos ayer en la capital gallega en torno a la hora que debe marcar nuestro reloj.
          A Bruxelles con un nuovo impegno sulla manovra entro dieci giorni      Cache   Translate Page      

Un nuovo impegno per l'Ue entro dieci giorni: forse un documento di bilancio rivisto e corretto dopo la bocciatura della Commissione europea o forse una lettera. Comunque un'inversione di rotta da consegnare all'Europa prima del consiglio europeo del 13 e 14 dicembre, segnalano fonti di governo ad Huffpost. Il tempo stringe, i toni tra Roma e Bruxelles sono passati dagli insulti alla trattativa, il governo Conte tratta e vuole chiudere. Obiettivo: evitare la procedura di infrazione sul deficit legata al debito che potrebbe scattare il 19 dicembre, se tutti gli sforzi andassero a monte.

I dettagli dell'accordo sono ancora da definire, mentre a Bruxelles si svolge una riunione dell'Eurogruppo che, nelle sue conclusioni finali, conferma ancora la bocciatura della Commissione: "Sosteniamo la valutazione della Commissione Ue e raccomandiamo all'Italia di prendere le misure necessarie a rispettare le regole del Patto di stabilità". Ma - dettaglio non da poco - nelle conclusioni della riunione dei ministri della zona euro non c'è accenno esplicito alla procedura di infrazione contro l'Italia. E' un altro segnale della trattativa in corso.

"Siamo nel pieno periodo di approvazione della legge di bilancio, quindi stiamo valutando tutti gli emendamenti. Sto lavorando a tempo pieno per quanto riguarda l'interlocuzione con le istituzioni europee, ci stiamo lavorando a tempo pieno -questa mattina, stasera, domani - credo che nel volgere di qualche giorno avremo un ulteriore passaggio con le istituzioni europee", dice Conte, a margine di una conferenza stampa a Palazzo Chigi. "Confido di poter pervenire a quello che è il mio massimo auspicio, il mio grande obiettivo", ovvero una "soluzione condivisa per evitare la procedura di infrazione".

Secondo quanto riferiscono all'Huffpost fonti di governo, l'idea che si fa strada è di ridurre il deficit previsto al 2,4 per cento nel 2019. Le previsioni più ottimistiche dell'ala più incline al dialogo nell'esecutivo Conte puntano al 2 per cento, che è quanto chiede al minimo la Commissione per evitare la procedura di infrazione di fatto già 'apparecchiata' e che, senza correzioni, "va avanti", avverte Pierre Moscovici. Quota cento, il provvedimento sulle pensioni caro a Matteo Salvini, potrebbe diventare una 'una tantum' che risolva i problemi legati alla riforma Fornero (esodati), ma che di fatto salvaguardi quella riforma in quanto è l'unica riforma strutturale italiana apprezzata a livello europeo. Scomporla - fanno notare gli interlocutori europei - vorrebbe dire rimettere a rischio il sistema. Il reddito di cittadinanza, meno inviso a Bruxelles, invece verrebbe ristretto al massimo, ad una platea ridotta.

Il diavolo sta sempre nei dettagli e nessuno al governo si dice certo dell'accordo fatto. Tanto più che Salvini sta ancora chiedendo che 'quota cento' mantenga almeno una parte strutturale, altrimenti gli sarebbe difficile difendere la manovra di fronte agli elettori. Però anche i toni di Salvini sono diventati decisamente più morbidi.

"Smontare la Fornero è un mio preciso impegno", dice il vicepremier leghista arrivando al Parlamento europeo per incontrare i suoi eurodeputati prima della serata alla festa di 'politico.eu', giornale online che gli assegna il premio di leader più influente dell'anno. Però poi aggiunge: "Lo faremo rispettando tutti i parametri. Il diritto al lavoro e il diritto alla pensione vengono prima di tutti i decimali e di tutti gli scogli". Salvini si mantiene alla larga dalle polemiche, accuratamente. Non si scalda nemmeno quando gli fanno notare che i commissari europei possono andare in pensione con soli dieci anni di attività. In altri tempi avrebbe approfittato per attaccare. Oggi no. Oggi l'Europa non è più un affare da smontare ma: "Il nostro obiettivo è entrare in queste istituzioni per ridare vita a un bellissimo sogno", dice Salvini.

Ora la trattativa è nelle mani del presidente del Consiglio Giuseppe Conte, come hanno messo nero su bianco ieri i due vicepremier Salvini e Di Maio in una nota congiunta. Ed è per questo che il nuovo impegno per Bruxelles arriverà qui in Europa in tempo per il consiglio europeo di metà dicembre. Dovrà essere una "correzione credibile della manovra e un impegno chiaro e indiscutibile del governo": è questo che chiedono da Bruxelles a Roma.

Per il capo del governo, il consiglio europeo di fine anno sarà l'occasione per dimostrare ai partner europei gli sforzi fatti: ad Angela Merkel ed Emmanuel Macron, i più aperti al dialogo, e agli olandesi, i finlandesi, gli austriaci, insomma i più arrabbiati per le spese italiane in deficit. In questo modo, al termine di settimane di lavoro con una triangolazione di sforzi insieme al ministro dell'Economia Giovanni Tria sul lato dei conti e il ministro degli Esteri Enzo Moavero Milanesi sul lato della diplomazia, Conte si prefigge di suggellare l'accordo in modo che il 19 dicembre la Commissione non scriva le sue raccomandazioni per l'Italia, propedeutiche all'apertura formale della procedura all'Ecofin del 22 gennaio.

Insomma entro la metà dicembre, suggeriscono fonti di governo al lavoro sulla trattativa, deve essere tutto fatto. Perché altrimenti il caso Italia finisce nel collegio dei Commissari del 19 dicembre (secondo l'ordine del giorno che decideranno i capi di gabinetto di Palazzo Berlaymont il 17 dicembre) e a quel punto sarebbe troppo tardi.

Oggi a metà giornata, Tria e il vicepresidente della Commissione Europea Valdis Dombrovskis si fanno fotografare insieme. Sorridenti, si stringono la mano al termine di un colloquio. "Comune volontà di trovare al più presto una soluzione al contenzioso sulla manovra tra Roma e Bruxelles", è quanto emerge dall'incontro. Certo, il 'falco' Dombrovskis non si lascia sfuggire l'occasione per rimarcare che "non basta solo il cambio dei toni, serve una correzione consistente". Ma si intuisce anche alla riunione dell'Eurogruppo che l'Italia non è più nella condizione di tirare la corda ancora: i dati parlano di recessione in arrivo, cosa che sconfesserà le previsioni di crescita del governo. E poi oggi la levata di scudi di Confindustria ha fatto suonare l'allarme proprio al cuore dell'esecutivo: soprattutto nella Lega, nel mirino delle critiche del suo elettorato al nord.

Un'atmosfera diversa, insomma. Moscovici già annusa la vittoria. "La Commissione - dice placido il commissario agli Affari Economici - è la signora del tempo". E' una citazione di Macron, che oggi non se la passa bene con le proteste dei 'gilet gialli' in Francia, tanto che il suo ministro all'Economia Bruno Le Maire è costretto a lasciare l'Eurogruppo in anticipo per tornare a Parigi per riunioni di governo dopo le violenze alle manifestazioni di sabato scorso. Ma Moscovici cita il Macron che vinse le presidenziali due anni fa e parlava così: "Io resterò il 'padrone dell'orologio': bisognerà che i media si abituino. Non mi agiterò per andare davanti alle telecamere solo perché la signora Le Pen va in tv".

          Skier Mikaela Shiffrin clinches historic win      Cache   Translate Page      

She made her name as a slalom specialist but Mikaela Shiffrin won an historic super-G at Lake Louise Sunday to become the first skier to win races in all six World Cup disciplines.

The 23-year stormed to a first ever super-G title to clinch her 46th World Cup victory and move into fourth in the women's all-time list.

Only Switzerland's Vreni Schneider (55), Austria's Annemarie Moser-Proll (62) and US teammate Lindsey Vonn (82) have won more World Cup races on the women's circuit.

"It was one of my big goals to win in every discipline when I first started racing...one of those goals that you don't think you're ever going to achieve, and it's incredible," Shiffrin said.

Visit CNN/com/Sport for more news, features and videos

In only her ninth career World Cup super-G start, Shiffrin took an aggressive line to beat Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel by 0.77 seconds with Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg third.

The technical specialist won her first World Cup downhill race in Lake Louise last season and has now triumphed in slalom, parallel slalom, giant slalom, super-G, downhill and alpine combined.

She also became the seventh woman to win in skiing's five different disciplines of downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom and combined.

Shiffrin, bidding for a third straight World Cup overall crown, has already won slalom races in Levi, Finland and Killington, Vermont this season.

She will be going for a fourth straight world slalom title at alpine skiing's biennial World Championships, in Are, Sweden in February.

'Huge blow'

Vonn, who is chasing Ingemar Stenmark's record of 86 World Cup wins, missed the race weekend at Lake Louise after injuring her knee in training last month.

On Friday she backtracked on her decision to retire at the end of the season with the announcement she will race at her favorite Lake Louise location in 2019.

The Canadian venue has been so successful for Vonn it has earned the nickname "Lake Lindsey" -- she has won 18 of her 44 starts on the Alberta track.

Vonn said in a video posted on social media that missing the Lake Louise stop was "devastating" and a "huge blow."

"Hopefully, I break the record this season and can have fun," she added.

"I don't want the record to determine the level of success I've had in my career. I want to push out of the starting gate (at Lake Louise), even if I'm not there to win. Lake Louise is just really special to me. It's not about the record. It's not about, 'Oh, well you said you retired.' I really don't care what people think. I really don't. I want to do it for myself."

          Watch DEE SNIDER And TARJA TURUNEN Perform With Finnish Christmas Rock Project RASKASTA JOULUA      Cache   Translate Page      
Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER) and Tarja Turunen (NIGHTWISH) are among the guest musicians who performed with Finland's annual, all-star symphonic Christmas rock project RASKASTA JOULUA, which translates to "Heavy Christmas," earlier tonight (Tuesday, December 4) in Rauma, Finland. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below. RASKASTA JOULUA started with an album in 2004 and the sequel in 2006 and has toured every year since 2005. Indeed, the accompanying tour is an event and a highlight on the annual holiday calendar for fans of all age groups. The project has progressed in size and scope each and every year, in both popularity and the prestige of the participants. The concert tour now runs for more than a month before the holiday season and plays to full arenas and ice stadiums. The project's producer/arranger and guitarist Erkka Korhonen is amazed by the popularity of the tour, saying: "Every year has been bigger for us and the show has become a tradition for so many people. Even people who haven't celebrated Christmas for several years have found its spirit again through what we do." RASKASTA JOULUA is inspired by TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA and the participants view the project in serious fashion, which is not always true of Christmas-themed collections. There is nothing novelty or jokey about this project. Don't expect familiar holiday favorites to be given a weak makeover or merely amplified by distorted guitars that have been added to give the Christmas jams a "rock" feel. That would be a Christmas cop-out. Instead, the songs are carefully arranged and executed, with flawless musicianship and world-class vocal contributions.

          La OTAN nunca ha sido un bloque defensivo - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page      

A lo largo de la Guerra Fría, la OTAN se proclamaba como una alianza defensiva. Sin embargo, esto ni era verdad en aquellos tiempos, ni lo ha sido tampoco desde entonces. Así lo revelan las intervenciones y cambios de regímenes promovidos con sus acciones militares, desde Yugoslavia hasta Libia.

El 4 de abril de 1943, los países fundadores: Bélgica, Canadá, Dinamarca, Estados Unidos, Francia, Islandia, Italia, Luxemburgo, Noruega, Países Bajos, Portugal y Reino Unido (12 en total), firmaron en Washington el Tratado Atlántico Norte. El 18 de mayo de 1950, los cancilleres de dichas naciones, signaron el documento que daba forma a las estructuras permanentes de la Alianza Atlántica.

Tras el desmantelamiento en 1991, de la respuesta socialista a la OTAN (Pacto de Varsovia), la alianza continuó su existencia, expandiendo su membresía y presencia geográfica, usurpando abiertamente el papel de la ONU, interviniendo en la ex-Yugoslavia, comenzó en Bosnia en 1994, lanzando una guerra contra lo que quedaba del país yugoslavo, en 1999, ocupando Kosovo, después de tal operación.

Desde 2001, la OTAN ha participado en la guerra de Estados Unidos en Afganistán. En 2003, no se unió oficialmente a la invasión ilegal de Irak, pero muchos de sus países miembros se unieron a la “Coalición de la voluntad”, impulsada por George W. Bush. 

Después de 1999, la acción militar más abierta fue su intervención el 19 de marzo de 2011 en Libia. Posterior a que el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU autorizara el establecimiento de una zona de exclusión aérea sobre el país, Canadá, Estados Unidos, Francia y Reino Unido iniciaron los ataques aéreos sobre su territorio.

Oficialmente, la Alianza asumió el mando de la guerra el 31 de marzo, bajo la llamada Operación Protector Unificado, realizando en octubre 26,500 vuelos, hasta la muerte del gobernante libio Muammar Gaddafi en octubre.

En 1990, James Baker entonces secretario de Estado de Estados Unidos, prometió al líder soviético Mijail Gorbachov que la OTAN no avanzaría ni una pulgada hacia el este si Alemania se reunificaba, pero hizo exactamente todo lo contrario.

Hungría, Polonia y la República Checa, fueron aceptadas oficialmente a la OTAN en marzo de 1999, pocos días antes de que los aviones de combate de la Alianza, iniciara el bombardeo en el territorio yugoslavo, sumándose en el 2002, Bulgaria, Eslovaquia y Rumania. El último país del antiguo Pacto de Varsovia en unirse (2009). La coalición se expandió hasta las antiguas repúblicas yugoslavas: Croacia, Eslovenia y Montenegro, incluyendo a las antiguas Repúblicas soviéticas de Estonia, Letonia y Lituania, llegando a las fronteras de Rusia. Continúo expandiéndose hacia Georgia y Ucrania.

La más reciente escalada de las tensiones con Rusia inició en febrero de 2014, tras un golpe de Estado en Ucrania, respaldado por Estados Unidos. Desde esa fecha, las tropas de la Alianza establecieron bases en el extremo oeste ucraniano, proporcionando armas, entrenamiento a militares y neonazis para contrarrestar la agresión rusa.

So pretexto de “disuadir a Moscú”, la OTAN estableció bases militares permanentes en los tres Estados bálticos, Rumania y Polonia, llevan a cabo una serie de ejercicios militares masivos en la frontera con Rusia.

Inició las maniobras “Trident Juncture”, en Noruega, una intensiva coordinación estratégica entre Estados Unidos y 30 países, cuyo objetivo es practicar una respuesta militar a cualquier amenaza desde cualquier dirección. Desde el final de la Guerra Fría, tales maniobras son el mayor ejercicio de la OTAN y constituyen un claro mensaje para cualquier potencial adversario, de que protegerá a todos los aliados.


En diversos puntos del país nórdico y en el mar Báltico, los ejercicios se extienden del 25 de octubre al 7 de noviembre, abarca también Islandia, el espacio aéreo de Suecia y Finlandia, dos naciones no miembros de la alianza, pero que este año se sumarán a las maniobras. Los ensayos comprenden cerca de 65 buques, 250 aviones, 10,000 vehículos y unos 50,000 efectivos.

Aunque la Alianza no ha nombrado a su supuesto adversario en las maniobras, el exmilitar Juan Antonio Aguilar (director del portal El EspíaDigital.com), afirma que: el enemigo que justifica la existencia de la OTAN es Rusia. Sostiene que uno de sus objetivos, es visualizar la presencia de fuerzas occidentales en la frontera rusa. El canciller ruso, Serguéi Lavrov, condenó la acumulación de tropas cerca de las fronteras de su país. 

El comportamiento de la OTAN, desde la década de 1990, muestra que se ha convertido en un agresivo y expansionista organismo, al servicio de las prioridades de la política exterior de Estados Unidos.

This gay love story defies borders. 

SyriaImmigrationLove and SexVideoNew Clip from A Moment in the ReedsAdvocate Video Team

A stolen kiss in a woodshed takes place between two young men from very different paths in this clip from the new feature film A Moment in the Reeds. A romance forms between a young Finnish academic, Leevi (Janne Puustinen), and a struggling Syrian refugee, Tareq (Boodi Kabbani). Both of the lead actors are gay, and their chemistry in the film is palpable. Secluded at Leevi's family's lake house, the two men act on their atttration despite the threat of Leevi's father returning. Watch their kiss below.

 

 

 

The Advocate spoke to Finnish director Mikko Makela about why he was compelled to tell this timely love story. 

"When we set out to make the film in early 2016, there had been no feature-length queer films produced in Finland, and very few films about immigrants to the country," he said. "I wanted to make a film about two outsiders in Finnish society who had until then rarely, if ever, been seen in Finnish cinema, and place them center stage in a story about the search for freedom and acceptance. With the terrifying swell of xenophobia in response to the arrival of Syrian and Iraqi refugees into Finland in 2015, it felt incredibly urgent to present a multidimensional, humanizing portrait of someone who is too often in people’s minds reduced to a stereotype built up simply from news headlines, or worse, xenophobic political discourse.

"At its heart, this is a film about two migrants, two people who have fled their native countries -- one of course in far more privileged circumstances than the other -- for a freer, safer life elsewhere: a common trajectory for queer people migrating from hostile environments to safer spaces. They meet in Finland, a country which they both view very differently: a society generally thought of as relatively liberal, where the Syrian Tareq feels that he can finally live freely, but which the Finnish Leevi has rejected as conservative and stifling. It was the tension inherent in this unexpected and problematic crossing of paths that I was compelled to explore in A Moment in the Reeds.

A Moment In The Reeds Still 1

"I wanted to portray the beauty and meaningfulness of an encounter between people coming from seemingly very different circumstances, yet who find common ground in shared emotions, hopes, dreams -- a shared humanity. I was trying to present a more expansive and inclusive vision of Finnish society against increasingly conservative ideas of national identity as defined through ethnicity or of masculinity as defined through heterosexuality. Whilst the film is set in Finland, its relevance to so many other western societies, not least the U.S., that currently find themselves grappling with nativist and xenophobic political movements trying to halt immigration and deny asylum to those most in need, has become woefully clear since shooting it."

          El Gobierno socialista portugués se deja querer por el opaco régimen chino      Cache   Translate Page      
El presidente de China, Xi Jinping, ha pagado dos millones de euros para alojarse (él y su comitiva) dos días en el Hotel Ritz de Lisboa, 4 y 5 de diciembre. El derroche de lujo no tiene precedentes en la capital portuguesa, donde esta visita oficial del mandatario es saludada por el Gobierno socialista de António Costa como un auténtico maná lleno de inversiones, ya superiores a los 9.000 millones de euros. Las palabras del líder asiático sobre la importancia de Portugal en la «Ruta de la Seda» del siglo XXI son el fiel reflejo de que la agenda del itinerario apenas tiene contenido político y se consagra a explotar el perfil económico. Sí, porque el país vecino se ha encaramado ya al segundo puesto en la Unión Europea en cuanto a destino del dinero chino, solo superado por Finlandia. No obstante, con la OPA de China Three Gorges por la eléctrica lusa EDP sobre la mesa y otra más protagonizada por el conglomerado Datang en relación a Generg las perspectivas indican que, a este ritmo, alcanzará el primer lugar y terminará por desbancar a los escandinavos. Así que el telón de fondo financiero no alberga dudas al respecto: Portugal se deja querer para atraer cada vez más inversiones directas procedentes de Pekín y Hong-Kong. El objetivo no es otro que colocar en primer plano la economía nacional, del mismo modo que llevan varios años entrando en el juego los activos estratégicos y las empresas. ¿Alguna contrapartida? Pues que las firmas portuguesas comienzan a desembarcar en la locomotora asiática, todo un mastodonte internacional de las finanzas. Un panorama que se erige en aliado de los esquemas chinos en sus pretensiones de colarse en la UE por el flanco periférico, en vista de que Francia o Alemania presentan mayores reticencias. El embajador de Estados Unidos en Lisboa, George Edwards Glass, ha declarado que el Gobierno de Donald Trump se halla «muy atento» a la situación, debido al recelo que despierta el desembarco chino en Portugal, dado que no se cuestiona en ningún momento la opacidad del todopoderoso régimen con tal de que el dinero se asiente en suelo luso. Los episodios oscuros en este sentido no han dejado de sucederse, como la intención de CEFC Energy de hacerse con la petrolífera Partex y con Montepio Seguros, unas operaciones frustradas por los casos de corrupción en los que se vieron envueltos los fundadores de la compañía china. No obstante, el gabinete de António Costa mira para otro lado, consciente de que la estabilidad del país vecino juega a su favor, como también el hecho de ser uno de los pocos bastiones socialistas (de momento) en la UE.

Libros que nos inspiran: 'Del mito al laboratorio' de Daniel Torregrosa #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Cuando Stalin decidió atacar Finlandia para apropiarse de territorios que le permitieran defender Leningrado ante una probable confrontación futura con Hitler, se concibió una campaña a gran escala que no debía extenderse más allá de dos semanas. La confrontación con el país nórdico, sin embargo, se alargó tres meses y medio y costó la vida de entre 230.000 y 270.000 soldados rusos, poniendo en entredicho la reputación del Ejército Rojo.

Las razones de la resistencia numantina de los finlandeses fueron muchas, como el gélido frío de aquel invierno de 1939-1940. Pero, por encima de todas, había dos que permitieron que el David nórdico le sostuviera la mirada al Goliat soviético: agilidad, puntería y sisu. Las tres características que definen Del mito al laboratorio, de Daniel Torregrosa.

Agilidad, puntería y sisu

Simo Häyhä, con un récord de 505 muertes confirmadas, una media de cinco al día, la mayor cifra en cualquier guerra, fue uno de tantos ejemplos de unos ágiles esquiadores vestidos con uniforme de camuflaje blanco y comandos letales de francotiradores. Con esa agilidad me imagino a Torregrosa escribiendo este libro, que repasa hábilmente el origen mitológico de muchos de los conceptos que se usan en ciencia y tecnología.

Y con la misma puntería de Häyha, da en el blanco sacando a la luz los aspectos menos conocidos de la etimología, la historia, la literatura, la medicina y otras disciplinas que subyacen en la acuñación de términos científicos y la consolidación de ideas de campos como la astronomía, la psicología, la química o la física. Y qué puntería... al poco de empezar a leer pensé: pero ¡qué buena idea! Nunca se había ocurrido que la mitología podía ser un hilo conductor tan estupendo para contar historias de ciencia, tanto a nivel pragmático como estético. Ello agudiza de una forma particularmente interesante el storytelling, que se dice ahora. Por ejemplo, Procusto, que fue el hijo de Poseidón, tiene una historia detrás que ha permitido que su nombre sirva para acuñar un síndrome psicológico, un método matemático empleado en estadística y un término matemático. Al concluir este capítulo, pues, uno ha aprendido acerca de un personaje mitológico, sobre psicología, sobre matemáticas y sobre informática.

Dan Kckg U601722486009ixh 624x499 La Verdad

Y aquí es donde hay que reconocer en Torregrosa el sisu que se decía que todos los soldados finlandeses tenían en la sangre, un término esquivo que significa algo así como “agallas”, “osadía”, “coraje” e, incluso, “cojones”, o una combinación de todas ellas. Porque todo eso es necesario, amén de una buena dosis de audacia intelectual, muchas lecturas acumuladas y una mente abierta y flexible, para concebir una obra consiliente como ésta, como diría Edward O. Wilson. Es decir, una obra donde no se traza una línea divisoria entre las dos culturas de Snow, donde ni siquiera hay demarcaciones claras entre distintas disciplinas, sino que plantea el conocimiento, la cultura, como un todo interconectado. A modo de las hipernovelas de Calvino. Donde el aleteo de una mariposa en historia, genera lluvia en psicología, terremotos en física o huracanes en astronomía. Y, por si fuera poco, todo sustentado en una premisa tan original. Porque libros de curiosidades hay muchos, pero pocos con un leit motiv tan poderoso y diferente al resto. Uno que, además, te anima a seguir, para descubrir ese nuevo recodo en el laberinto que es el libro de Torregrosa.

Y, así, tirando del hilo de Ariadna, poco a poco, Torregrosa nos conduce por el laberinto de la cultura, o la Cultura, en enfática mayúscula, en la que todo está conectado con todo de alguna forma, a veces muy evidente, otras tantas muy poco. Todo ello con cercanía, bonhomía, humildad y amor por cada dato, por cada postilla, por cada nueva conexión inesperada. Porque Torregrosa disfruta tanto descubriendo como explicando a los demás lo que ha descubierto, deleitándose así doblemente con la experiencia, un poco vicariamente, a través del gozo de los demás. Y eso se nota en cada página.

          Trump the Incendiary - Irrational Political Satire 2      Cache   Translate Page      

"Private Eye" issue 1484, 13 Dec 2018 (p. 29)

There is something about Trump that makes otherwise intelligent, well-educated and well-informed people lose their reason. When they're not trying to make you lose yours, as I showed a few days ago.

Above are two more examples.

Let's start with the cartoon. Here is Trump, with that darkened face (it would be orange if in colour) represented as George Washington in the famous anecdote in which GW freely confessed his wrongdoing to his father. So, translated into words, is this image telling us that President Trump was personally responsible for the fires in California? Or that forest management would mean cutting down the trees?

And then, when the satirists decide to use words, as in the skit atop this strange sketch, they blether about Twitter, climate change, MAGA, supposed criticism by Trump of the firefighters tackling the blaze - just, lunacy.

It's a visceral thing, not a rational matter. This video gives a plausible explanation for "liberal" intellectuals' loss of self-control at the sight and sound of the President (htp: A K Haart):



What actually happened?

Trump visited California because of the terrible blazes there that have claimed dozens of victims, with hundreds of other people still not accounted for.

Now the usual approach of political leaders is simply to empathise on our behalf - remember President Clinton's "I feel your pain"? (he did say it), announce financial and other support in general terms, and so on. It's sort of performing a Father Of The Nation or priestly role. And because we are mostly emotional, it works: Clinton's "emotional intelligence" may have helped him gain the Presidency, denying Bush Senior his second term in office.

But Trump is a businessman, so he blundered straight on into practical suggestion, looking at what could be done to prevent a recurrence. Clearing the forest floor, for example.

And that was a gift for those who will seize on anything at all to bury Trump in negatives. Suggest thinning out the woodland and you are accused of grabbing an opportunity to increase logging. Or an expert "fire scientist" - or biology professor - says that's not the issue. And because Trump speaks as he thinks, he will make verbal stumbles and that's even better - so "raking" became the big joke.

No wonder professional politicians practise being bland and vague.

But eventually, amid the spluttering, there came some more nuanced reconsideration of the problem and possible solutions, e.g. the BBC's "California wildfires: Is Trump right when he blames forest managers?"

As so often, when the media flak has died down we find that Trump has, in his ham-fisted way, opened an agenda for discussion. Among other things, the BBC's article implies that there is a need for better coordination between the various large landowners of California's forests, and quotes an expert who agrees that some detritus needs to be removed to reduce fire hazard.

Trump referenced Finland in his comments, but we might also learn from Portugal.

Last year, Portugal saw horrendous fires in the forests in its central region, with over 60 fatalities, some caught in the flashover as they took the wrong road in their attempt to drive out of danger.

This is a perennial danger in Portugal, much of which which is mountainous and covered with oily, fast-burning coniferous trees. A standard part of the land management is to clear the woodland floor.

If you walk along the dusty tracks through the forest, you will see rags and empty plastic milk bottles hanging from branches: these indicate the boundaries of individually-owned plots of land, which can be quite small, in traditional rural areas. You can help yourself to branches and cones that have fallen onto the road, but everything off the track is private.

The owners are responsible for regular clearance of their patch. It's their duty to the community.

But the situation is becoming difficult as the pattern of land ownership and settlement changes. In Portugal, if you wish to sell your house, you must show that you have the legal agreement of the entire family, even those members living abroad (and some two million of working age have emigrated to look for employment.) As the Portuguese have risen out of relative poverty, what they have been doing is to buy or build new houses elsewhere and simply abandon the old ones. There are many houses and plots of land that lie untended and it's often not clear who they belong to. So, who is going to clear their forest patch for them?

There's a 2018 English-language study of the complex Portuguese wildfire management issues here.

President Trump can often seem clumsy and crass, but our respect for some media commentators and parodists diminishes when we see how unthinking their responses to him can be.

https://www.aneddoticamagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/Classe_primaire.jpg

Tra gli obiettivi del Millennio fissati alla vigilia del 2000 per garantire uno sviluppo equo e sostenibile c’era l’istruzione di base: secondo i firmatari dell’accordo, entro il 2030 sarebbe stato necessario garantire l’istruzione per tutti. Alla scadenza della tappa intermedia del 2015, quando si sarebbe dovuto raggiungere l’obiettivo di offrire “un’educazione primaria universale, assicurando l’accesso a un ciclo completo di scuola primaria a tutti bambini nel mondo, maschi e femmine”, ci si è resi conto che (come per molti altri obiettivi) i risultati ottenuti erano lungi dall’essere stati ottenuti. È vero che si sono avuti dei miglioramenti ma, ancora oggi, decine di milioni di bambini non ricevono alcun tipo di educazione scolastica (di questi 30 milioni sono nell’Africa sub-sahariana). Solo i paesi in via di sviluppo in Asia centrale e orientale e in Europa hanno raggiunto gli standard che ci si era prefissati, mentre il Medio oriente, il Nord Africa, l’America Latina e i Caraibi sono fermi al 95 per cento. I paesi del sud est asiatico hanno raggiunto la quota del 91 per cento nel 2009 e da allora non ci sono stati miglioramenti. In altri paesi, come nella regione dell’Africa sub-sahariana, solo il 70 per cento dei bambini e delle bambine ha accesso al ciclo completo di studi primari. Cosa ancora più grave, in 9 paesi dell’Africa sub-sahariana non sono disponibili dati sufficienti a valutare la situazione!


L’educazione non è importante solo dal punto di vista nozionistico: come affermava Condorcet nel 1791, “abbraccia tutte le opinioni politiche, morali o religiose. La libertà di queste opinioni non sarebbe che illusoria, se la società si impadronisse delle nascenti generazioni per imporre loro ciò in cui devono credere”.


La cosa sorprendente è che anche in molti dei paesi più sviluppati questo non avviene. A confermarlo sono i risultati di uno studio condotto dalla Fondazione Novae Terrae e dall’OIDEL, una Ong con status consultivo presso le Nazioni Unite, l’Unesco e il Consiglio d’Europa che ha analizzato l’indice globale della libertà di educazione (compresi i diritti dei genitori) partendo dalle disposizioni dell’articolo 13 della Convenzione internazionale sui diritti economici, sociali e culturali, l’Indice Globale della Libertà di Educazione presenta dati su scala mondiale sul rispetto e la promozione di tale diritto fondamentale e delle politiche che sostengono la libertà di educazione nel contesto nazionale e a livello regionale.


In Europa i miglioramenti dal 2012 al 2015 sono stati limitatissimi. È ancora limitata la possibilità “legale” di istituire e gestire scuole non governative (SNG); e anche quando queste esistono non ricevono aiuti sufficienti. Anche il tasso di iscrizione netto (istruzione primaria) che indica lo sforzo dello Stato in termini di accessibilità all’educazione, spesso non è così elevato come si potrebbe pensare: solo pochi paesi hanno raggiunto il massimo del punteggio in questo indicatore (come Gran Bretagna, Norvegia, Uruguay). Gli altri hanno mostrato lacune a volte sorprendenti.


Anche la posizione dell’Italia non è positiva. Nonostante le promesse e le riforme adottate siamo ben lontani dall’aver raggiunto i traguardi sperati: l’Italia è solo 26esima della classifica mondiale. La percentuale di scolarizzazione primaria è del 96 per cento e quella secondaria solo del 91 per cento. Ma quello che dovrebbe destare sorpresa è l’indice di libertà di educazione: qui l’Italia è solo 47esima. Il punteggio del Bel Paese (228) appare lontanissimo da quello di paesi come l’Irlanda (389), i Paesi Bassi (353) o il Belgio (352). Perfino paesi come il Guatemala (263), il Libano (235) o il Cile (303) hanno ottenuto valutazioni ben più positive. L’Italia ha ricevuto una valutazione che la accomuna a paesi come la Mongolia, il Gabon, l’Ecuador e il Camerun.


Anche un’altra classifica ha fornito risultati altrettanto deludenti: quella stilata dall’Economist Intelligence Unit sui sistemi scolastici di 50 dei Paesi più sviluppati. Ancora una volta sono emerse le problematiche del sistema educativo italiano e la sua precarietà. In questa classifica l’Italia è 24esima su 50 paesi: ben lontana dai vertici della classifica occupati da Finlandia e Sud Corea paesi dove (secondo i ricercatori) l‘istruzione e la cultura sono considerate fondamentali anche nell’ottica dei vantaggi economici che da esse possono derivare.

Rolls-Royce presenta en Finlandia su primer ferry autónomo#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

En el ámbito de los vehículos autónomos ya contamos con coches, aviones y hasta camiones. Pero Rolls-Royce (no esa Roll-Royce, sino la otra mitad —la fabricante de motores y submarinos— de la empresa original, dividida tras su bancarrota en 1971) acaba de sumar un nuevo vehículo a la lista: el ferry, y ha querido demostrar públicamente su funcionamiento con un viaje entre las localidades finesas de Parainen y Nauvo.

Durante el trayecto de ida, la nave operó de manera completamente autónoma, pero en el viaje de vuelta estuvo controlado de forma remota desde un centro de mando situado a 50 kilómetros de allí, con el objetivo de demostrar que la nave puede pasar a estar bajo control humano si es necesario.

"Lo de hoy demuestra que la nave autónoma no es sólo una idea, sino algo que transformará el transporte tal como lo conocemos", afirmó el responsable para navegación comercial de la compañía, Mikael Makinen, tras desvelar que han estado probando esta tecnología durante 400 horas de navegación por las aguas del archipiélago de Turku.

Ferrys, buques de carga... y barcos de guerra

Rolls-Royce, que ya colabora con Intel para crear buques de carga inteligentes, se asoció con la empresa pública local Finferries el pasado mes de mayo para poner en marcha el proyecto SVAN (Safer Vessel with Autonomous Navigation), y así "optimizar la seguridad y la eficiencia de los barcos" del operador de ferrys introduciendo tecnologías de navegación autónoma.

Ferry

"El proyecto SVAN es producto una colaboración exitosa entre Rolls-Royce y Finferries y constituye una oportunidad para mostrar al mundo los grandes beneficios que puede aportar la tecnología de navegación inteligente" a la hora de operar los barcos, afirma Makinen.

El CEO de Finferries, Mats Rosin, explica por su parte que su "principal objetivo en esta cooperación ha sido aumentar la seguridad en el tráfico marítimo, lo cual es beneficioso tanto para el medio ambiente como para nuestros pasajeros".

De hecho, el ferry de SVAN cuenta con innumerables sensores coordinados por una IA que le ayudan a identificar y sortear obstáculos en su entorno, y le permiten incluso contar con un sistema de auto-docking para 'aparcarse' al llegar a puerto.

Pero la navegación autónoma no avanza únicamente en el ámbito del transporte comercial: en 2016, la agencia estadounidense DARPA presentó un prototipo de buque de guerra autónomo llamado Sea Hunter. Tras una etapa inicial exitosa de su proceso de desarrollo, el pasado mes de febrero DARPA informaba que dejaba el proyecto en manos de la Oficina de Investigación Naval de los Estados Unidos.

          Conner Youngblood      Cache   Translate Page      
Neurolux, Thursday, Dec. 6 Singer-songwriter Conner Youngblood's debut album, Cheyenne (Counter Records, 2018), plays like something half-forgotten. Though each of the world traveler's songs are meant to evoke a specific place—Los Angeles, Stockholm, Yellowknife in Canada—they feel more like soundtracks to the listener's best and worst memories, ethereal and evocative echoes. The bounding soundscape of "The Birds of Finland," for example, is a good memory, while the subtly shifting threads of "Cheyenne" form a bad one, an impression reinforced by the song's discomforting video. In it, Youngblood leans against a bright yellow car mired in fog, humming along to the music with a faint smile even as silent gunshots bloody his chest. The juxtaposition is both unsettling and somehow beautiful. In addition to contributing sparse, breathy vocals, Youngblood is a multi-instrumentalist, and rounds out his debut with harp, cuatro and flute melodies. Catch his solo show at Neurolux on Thursday, Dec. 6, to step into a different headspace.

          4 Negara Ini Tempat Sembunyi Teraman Saat Perang Dunia III Pecah pada 2019?      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Ketegangan politik antara Rusia dan Ukraina masih terus memanas hingga kini. Bentrokan antara kedua negara di Selat Kerch kian memperburuk keadaan, kapal-kapal saling menembaki bak berperang.

Ukraina mengklaim bahwa kapal mereka dicegat oleh pasukan Rusia setelah melakukan perjalanan ke Mariupol, sedangkan Rusia mengaku bahwa kapal Ukraina telah melanggar batas wilayah perairan.

Menurut keterangan yang dikutip dari Express.co.uk, Rabu (5/12/2018), warga Inggris yang takut akan peristiwa tersebut telah menghindari zona berbahaya, dengan pergi ke beberapa negara yang aman untuk bersembunyi.

Britania Raya tak ingin mengambil risiko. Pemikiran ini sejalan dengan negara-negara lain seperti Kanada, Selandia Baru dan Amerika Serikat. Demikian menurut laporan dari studi yang dibuat oleh International SOS and Control Risks.

Lalu, negara mana saja yang bisa dijadikan sebagai tempat perlindungan dari pertempuran Ukraina dan Rusia, mengingat kekhawatiran munculnya "Perang Dunia III" di masa mendatang? Berikut empat di antaranya.

 

Saksikan video pilihan berikut ini:

1. Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein (AFP)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Liechtenstein merupakan negara yang penduduknya berbicara bahasa Jerman. Ini terletak di antara Austria dan Swiss, serta dikenal sebagai salah satu negara paling aman.

Selain karena tingginya jumlah polisi yang berpatroli di jalan-jalan dan tingkat kejahatan yang rendah, lokasi Liechtenstein yang berada di tengah dua negara yang netral juga membuatnya menjadi tujuan aman untuk berlindung.

Mereka yang mencoba masuk ke negara non-Uni Eropa ini, harus terbang ke Zurich terlebih dahulu, karena Liechtenstein tidak memiliki bandara. Hal ini disebabkan oleh luas wilayahnya yang amat kecil.

2. Greenland

(Paul Daly/The Canadian Press via AP)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Bepergian ke Greenland --salah satu pulau terbesar di dunia-- tidaklah mudah meski negara ini menjadi tujuan yang aman, karena jauh dari konflik dan letaknya yang terpencil.

Umumnya, kendala yang kerap dijumpai oleh orang-orang yang ingin pergi ke Greenland adalah mahalnya harga tiket pesawat dan tak ada penerbangan langsung. Pelancong harus mendarat terlebih dahulu di Islandia.

Populasinya yang jarang, membuat Greenland mendapat sebutan sebagai negara yang hampir tidak punya kriminalitas dan menjadikannya tempat yang sempurna untuk berlindung.

Selain itu, di Greenland, warganya tidak memiliki keselarasan politik. Sebagian besar keputusan pemerintah lokal dilakukan melalui pemerintah Denmark --negara yang juga dikatakan aman.

3. Luxembourg

Negara lain yang disebut sebagai negara teraman di dunia adalah Luxembourg. Satu-satunya ancaman kejahatan yang terjadi adalah kejahatan kecil, seperti pencopetan.

Namun, negara ini juga menjadi salah satu negara kaya, yang artinya Luxembourg adalah tempat yang mahal untuk berlindung. Dengan perbatasan yang meliputi Belgia, Prancis dan Jerman, negara tersebut telah dikuasai selama Perang Dunia I dan Perang Dunia II, meskipun menyatakan netralitasnya.

Meski demikian, pemerintah Luxembourg menjamin layanan kesehatan bagi rakyatnya, distrik yang aman, dan infrastruktur yang memadai.

4. Islandia

Nyaris serupa dengan Greenland, Islandia juga merupakan pulau kecil yang letaknya hampir terpencil. Negara ini juga tetap netral, meskipun diambil alih oleh Inggris pada tahun 1940. Perang Dunia II menyebabkan ekspansi ekonomi di wilayah tersebut.

Sayangnya, biaya hidup di Islandia pun terbilang tak murah, karena itulah tingkat kejahatan menjadi sangat rendah di negara tersebut. Meski demikian, ada perjanjian militer yang dilakukan oleh Islandia dengan Norwegia dan Denmark, termasuk Coast Guard atau Penjaga Pantai.

          Conner Youngblood      Cache   Translate Page      
Neurolux, Thursday, Dec. 6 Singer-songwriter Conner Youngblood's debut album, Cheyenne (Counter Records, 2018), plays like something half-forgotten. Though each of the world traveler's songs are meant to evoke a specific place—Los Angeles, Stockholm, Yellowknife in Canada—they feel more like soundtracks to the listener's best and worst memories, ethereal and evocative echoes. The bounding soundscape of "The Birds of Finland," for example, is a good memory, while the subtly shifting threads of "Cheyenne" form a bad one, an impression reinforced by the song's discomforting video. In it, Youngblood leans against a bright yellow car mired in fog, humming along to the music with a faint smile even as silent gunshots bloody his chest. The juxtaposition is both unsettling and somehow beautiful. In addition to contributing sparse, breathy vocals, Youngblood is a multi-instrumentalist, and rounds out his debut with harp, cuatro and flute melodies. Catch his solo show at Neurolux on Thursday, Dec. 6, to step into a different headspace.

How to Celebrate Christmas When Home is Hard to Find

Christmas lights and decorations lined store windows and decorated the walkways all through the city. It was beautiful. Even the airport sparkled! I heaved my overstuffed carry-on up onto my shoulder and set off to find my gate. Holidays. What were they to me?

This year I spent Thanksgiving abroad. This blog post was written as I sat sipping a latte in a famous Finland café. By the time I returned to the states, I had approximately three weeks in my own house before I packed my car and drove the ten hours to my parents home for Christmas.

Is Christmas worth celebrating, for me?

Do I want to figure out how to haul a Christmas tree back to my apartment and then set it up and decorate it all by myself? I could get friends together to help me decorate, but these days even my close friend group is incredibly transient as they all either travel for the holidays, too, or are married and starting their own traditions.

          WOW LONDON 2019 Programme Announced      Cache   Translate Page      

The WOW Foundation has today announced plans for London 2019, in the build up to further activity across the UK and the rest of the world over the next two years. The London events, taking place 8-9 March, over International Women's Day, include talks with legendary activist and writer Angela Davis, award-winning journalist and author Naomi Klein as well as the launch of major new international anthology New Daughters of Africa edited by Margaret Busby. The programme also features events with Jo Brand and Catherine Mayer, and two global conversations WOW presents: What Now? and WOW presents: What Next? bringing together thousands of women from across all industries and communities to imagine and debate the future of gender equality. Tickets are on sale to Southbank Centre Members from today and to the public tomorrow, 6 December. There will be over 500 tickets available to schools.

The announcement marks the beginning of WOW's next chapter as an independent organisation and an international movement. Founded and led by Jude Kelly, former Artistic Director at Southbank Centre, The WOW Foundation will work to build and sustain a movement that believes a gender equal world is possible and desirable through Festivals, and events that empower women and girls. Kelly left the Southbank Centre to lead the WOW movement, having overseen its rapid growth over the last decade and recognising its potential power to drive global change in attitudes towards gender. WOW 2019 will comprise a series of eight major events, calling upon the WOW community to take stock of where equality is now and what is next, ahead of their 10-year anniversary in 2020. The WOW London events are designed to inspire, reflect and provoke and will subsequently be rolled out in discussion format across the length of the UK in 2019. Through the programme they will investigate what the next decade of WOW needs to look like if we are to achieve the 2030 UN sustainable goal around equality.

WOW Founder Jude Kelly said: "A seismic change in global women's affairs is coming about and we feel that everyone needs to be part of building a new gender equal world. In pursuit of this the WOW movement, now a charitable foundation, is accelerating across the world - with 2 million people involved in festivals in 30 countries across 5 continents - more and more people want to celebrate the lives and achievements of women and urge gender justice forward. The WOW Festivals, Think Ins, Wowser Girls Clubs and our growing International Leaders Forum have established WOW as the most significant convener of women across the globe."

Over the last 9 years the Festivals have developed a reputation as a space where world renowned artists, performers, and political and social activists such as Malala Yousafzai, Leymah Gbowee, Lupita Nyong'o, Annie Lennox, Patrick Stewart, Baroness Doreen Lawrence and Salma Hayek come and participate, alongside thousands of people of all genders to celebrate achievements and discuss solutions together. The unique Festival model creates ways for participants and campaigners, women and men, to take part in WOW, to amplify their own causes, or start new initiatives which have a wide impact on communities. It has resulted in hundreds of gender equality initiatives over the past decade, for example: the Women's Equality Party was founded at the Festival by Sandi Toksvig and Catherine Mayer; Nimco Ali's campaign to raise awareness around Female Genital Mutilation first found significant platform at the festival and the formation of Girls Rock London, running rock camps for girls and women in London.

To date, WOW has reached over 2 million people in 17 countries on 5 continents across more than 60 festivals including in Australia, Brazil, China, Egypt, Finland, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Somaliland, the USA and across the UK. Next, WOW will be in Karachi, Dhaka, New York, Beijing and Atlanta, as well as Istanbul, Baltimore and Shanghai in 2020. It is the biggest, most comprehensive and most significant festival dedicated to connecting the stories of women and girls to active change making globally.

During the day on Friday 8 March and Saturday 9 March 2019 WOW will present What Now? and What Next?, led by Kelly. The events will look at the current state of the nation for women and girls, and then ask what the future looks like. In WOW presents: What Now? inspirational speakers, performers and thinkers will look at the ideas that matter to women and girls (cisgender, transgender and gender non-binary) and the men and boys who support them, from the toughest realities, to the greatest triumphs, in a world that is changing very quickly through politics, technology and cultural norms. It will look at everything from violence and money to wellbeing, to what it means to live with sexism and racism, disability, homophobia and transphobia. Kelly and guests will look at what women all over the world, from Cardiff to Karachi, Bradford to Baltimore and Australia to the Americas care about most, right now. WOW presents: What Next? asks what the future looks like in an age of hyper connectivity, extreme ideas and political turmoil. Across the afternoon audiences will hear from the women helping to imagine - and create - an equal world.

On Friday evening, activist Angela Davis will be in conversation with Kelly following her legendary sold out in conversation at WOW London in 2017 on women, race and class in the post-Trump era. Also on Friday, WOW will present the Women on the Move Awards 2019 celebrating leadership from migrant and refugee women in partnership with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency and Migrants Organise Ltd. Jo Brand, one of the UK's best loved comedians, joins Friday's lineup with Born Lippy: How To Do Female, challenging stereotypes, unpacking what it means to be female and refusing to remain silent.

On Saturday evening, in her first major engagement since being appointed the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, journalist, activist and author Naomi Klein will be in conversation with Kelly, taking a close look at the political and media landscape at this critical time for women, human rights, economic justice and climate change. Also on the Saturday, WOW will launch New Daughters of Africa, edited by Margaret Busby. Twenty-five years ago, the collection Daughters of Africa was published to international acclaim. The new work builds on this tradition for a new generation of women writers and the landscape of African women's writing today. A portrayal of the accomplishments of over 200 contributors, it celebrates their global sweep, diversity and achievements while also testifying to a wealth of genres. To launch this new publication, WOW will bring together leading contributors to honour a unifying heritage and range of creativity of women from the African diaspora. Also on Saturday evening, Women's Equality Party co-founder and writer Catherine Mayer examines how debates have become so damagingly polarised in a funny, freewheeling show on soundbite culture Catherine Mayer: FFS.

WOW London takes place by arrangement with Southbank Centre.

Drone deliveries may finally become a reality.

Wing, Alphabet’s drone delivery startup, has announced it will launch a trial-run of its service in Finland in spring 2019. 

The initial run will take place in Helsinki and offer 10 minute deliveries of items weighing up to 3.3 pounds on a round trip of up to 20 miles. The company is currently collecting more information from residents on its website, such as what people would like to see delivered by the service.

The options that Wing has made available include over-the-counter medication, groceries, emergency essentials such as diapers and ice scrapers, as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Deliveries made during the trial run will be free. Read more...

Five years ago, Amazon's Jeff Bezos predicted that by now we would all be getting packages delivered by drones. Despite numerous trials and pilots around the globe, we're still waiting. Meanwhile other companies have been nipping at Amazon's heels, including Google's parent company Alphabet. Its Project X drones started delivering burritos to customers in Australia's Capital Territory last year, and has now announced that folks in Finland can look forward to package deliveries by air from early 2019.

          Razer Blade Stealth updated with a refreshed design, 4K screen, and Windows Hell ...      Cache   Translate Page      

Razer is updating one of its most recognizable laptops, the 13.3-inch Blade Stealth, with a new chassis and specs. The updated Blade Stealth can be configured as a full HD, battery-conscious laptop or a 4K touchscreen machine with discrete graphics. Ultimately, this is going to be Razer’s most portable and affordable laptop, putting it in direct competition with machines from Apple and Dell.

The big deal with the Stealth’s fall refresh is its changing footprint. At first glance, I thought the new Blade Stealth was smaller than the previous generation, until I placed them side by side. In reality, the 2.82-pound laptop is actually four-tenths of an inch thicker, with thinner 4.9mm bezels flanking the screen (which are 60 percent thinner than the last gen’s) that make it appear to have a smaller footprint. It also has a smaller power brick for charging over USB-C.

Razer revamped the Stealth’s speaker setup, with four Dolby Atmos tuned speakers (two more than before) on both sides of the keyboard. There’s also a larger windows Precision Touchpad than before, complete with native gesture support.

You might be getting slightly more for your money this year, too: the new Blade Stealth starts with a quad-core processor, but with the same $1,399 starting price. Previously, you’d only get two cores, and $1,499 would get you a quad-core chip.

The new Blade Stealth has an Intel Core i7-8565U quad-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz (Turbo Boost to 4.6GHz), Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics, 8GB RAM, a 1080p matte screen (with 100 percent sRGB coverage), and a slower 256GB SATA SSD.

If that’s not enough power, you can upgrade the Blade Stealth laptop to a 4K glossy touchscreen, a new 25-watt version of Nvidia’s MX150 discrete graphics chip that Razer claims is fast enough to play League or Fortnite (on lower settings) at 1080p or 4K, 16GB RAM, and a faster 512GB PCIe solid state drive. These upgrades push the Stealth’s price tag up to the $1,899 mark.

On its own, the Stealth isn’t a gaming laptop (even with the MX150 chip), but both models still have eGPU support. That’ll allow you to use an enclosure like Razer’s own Core dock to attach a desktop-class GPU over a Thunderbolt 3 connection, with four PCIe lanes capable of 40GBps data transfers.

Razer hasn’t retained the individual Chroma key backlighting we’ve seen in the advanced Blade 15 and the last-gen Stealth. Instead, Razer swapped it for the single-zone layout in the base Blade 15 in order to conserve battery life, which company reps claim is “up to 13 hours” on the base 1080p Stealth, or three hours more than previously claimed with the last-gen Stealth. We’ll see how that pans out when we review the new Stealth in the coming weeks.


Razer Blade Stealth updated with a refreshed design, 4K screen, and Windows Hell ...

The new Blade Stealth in matte FHD (left) and glossy 4K (right) screen configurations.

Another new hardware addition is the IR camera mounted at the top of the display that allows you to log in to the Blade Stealth using Windows Hello facial recognition. It’s been a heavily requested feature of mine on previous Blade laptops, so it’s great to see facial recognition finally making an appearance in their lineup.

The new Razer Blade Stealth launches today, starting at $1,399 fromRazer.com and select retailers in the US and Canada. It’s also coming soon to retailers in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, China, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan.

          Comment on Coups, Culture & Consciousness: Contrived to Shape Our Future Character and Behavior by Tunya      Cache   Translate Page      
Imagine this headline: “Focus on soft skills will lead us astray: Chief Scientist”, Nov 25, 2018, The Australian. The scientist is Dr Alan Finkel, an engineer who created the tech company Axon Instruments. I will provide short snippets as this story is now behind a paywall: - criticized the logic behind the push for young people to develop so-called 21st-century skills, arguing the nation risks going “badly astray” unless content remains central to the school curriculum. - [there is the] case for preserving rigour - [He questioned] developing teamwork, emotional intelligence and creative thinking skills - [His comments] run contrary to the apparent thinking within the national curriculum authority, which has recently hired US-based 21st-century skills proponent Charles Fadel to help redesign the maths curriculum with a focus on generic skills. I know this blog has followed Fadel and his influence for a long time. I’m surprised that Australia has now imported Fadel on top of Pasi Sahlberg from Finland. Why this quickening pace? I also looked up if Fadel has been to my Canadian province of BC — on top of all those other gurus that keep popping up. Lo and behold! He WAS prominent here a few years back, mainly speaking to the private and independent schools groups!

Facebook ha presentado en la tarde de este miércoles problemas de conexión. Desde el mediodía, la popular red social ha dado problemas a los usuarios de una gran parte de Europa, quienes no podías acceder con garantías al servicio. La incidencia se ha detectado en torno a las 15:00 horas de este miércoles, tal y como recogió Down Detector, panel de incidencias de servicios digitales. L a caída de Facebook ha afectado a diferentes países europeos como Reino Unido, Bélgica, Francia, Alemania, Polonia, Noruega y Finlandia, principalmente. Portugal, Rumania, Grecia e Italia también se han visto afectados pero en menor medida. En España, algunos usuarios han denunciado el mal funcionamiento del servicio. Sin embargo, aunque Down Detector no recoge una caída de Facebook generalizada en nuestro país, sí se plasma cómo en Barcelona la red social ha tenido problemas. La multinacional norteamericana ha reconocido el problema, aunque ha apuntado que el fallo «ha sido corto» y «se solucionó rápido». «Durante un rato los usuarios han podido haber experimentado brevemente problemas para iniciar sesión en Facebook. El problema ya se ha resuelto; lamentamos cualquier inconveniente», señalan a ABC fuentes de la compañía. Por suerte esta caída no ha sido mundial, como le pasó a Facebook junto a Instagram a finales del pasado mes de noviembre. Facebook acumula más de 2.240 millones de usuarios en todo el mundo y en el último año se ha visto envuelto en numerosas polémicas.

OODI


          Finland's flagship library Oodi opens to the public in Helsinki      Cache   Translate Page      

The new Helsinki Central Library Oodi - Finland's largest and arguably most lavish - opened its doors to the public on Wednesday.

Although it's technically a library, it goes far beyond merely a place to borrow books. The facility features many spaces for meeting people and socialising, and offers the opportunity for people to participate in activities like readings, workshops and special events.

Apart from books and other reading materials, Oodi is also equipped with 3D printing gear and sewing machines for creators, rehearsal rooms for musicians, a small cinema and spaces that can be reserved for a variety of uses. There's also a café as well as the possibility to try out virtual reality technology.

The 98-million-euro facility was designed by Helsinki-based ALA architects, who won the international architecture competition to design the building in 2013, and located in the heart of downtown, near the Music Centre and Kiasma Art Museum in the Töölönlahti district.

The library began its grand opening on Wednesay but the public is invited to continue celebrations at Oodi on Thursday, Independence Day with a range of activities planned.

The new community centre

The significant investment in Oodi represents the central role that public libraries play in Finland. It is also a symbol of how the country has changed from the time the first public library was founded in Vaasa in 1794.

During the 1800s, the number of public libraries increased and the idea was to offer Finns the possibility of learning to read and increase literacy. The libraries of the time were financed and maintained by different foundations and organizations.

”We have had a very strong idea that literacy will take Finland forward. Without libraries our county would not have developed into its current welfare state status,” says Rauha Maarno, Director of the Finnish Library Association.

The period following the First and Second World Wars until the 1980s was the so-called Golden Age of libraries in Finland. Libraries were built at a rapid pace and the number of users grew rapidly.

With the addition of Oodi, there are now 730 public libraries in Finland.

Finnish libraries are also well used and book-borrowing is among the world’s highest. In the Nordic countries, Finland is number one in terms of library usage.

Last year nearly one million people attended events at libraries in Finland last year.

”The use of libraries has changed, but the symbolism is still the same. If we ensure funding, libraries in the future can do even more than just educating and teaching work,” says Maarno.

Despite all of the activities on offer, 99 percent of the library’s investments are still books, Maarno says.


          Suspected bus attacks under investigation by police      Cache   Translate Page      

The two separate incidents of reported violence on buses took place in the Loimaa municipality in western Finland and Uurainen, a municipality in the centre of the country, according to the NBI.

The NBI's Sanna Springare, who is lead investigator in the incidents, said the agency does not know whether the two incidents were related. The suspects allegedly involved in the incidents have foreign backgrounds and are in their 30s.

Springare said it is too early to say whether the incidents were related to terrorism, but they are looking into that possiblity.

The most recent incident took place at around 1:00 am on Wednesday in Uurainen, on a bus that was driving from Helsinki to the north-western city of Oulu.

The NBI said the man who caused the incident had suddenly gotten out of his seat on the bus and then attacked the driver.

Passengers who were sitting at the front of the bus near the driver saw the incident unfold, overpowered the man and wrestled him to the floor of the vehicle, according to the NBI.

The passengers then held the alleged attacker on the floor until a police unit arrived on the scene, the law enforcement agency said.

There were a reported 15 passengers aboard the bus at the time of the incident.

The NBI is investigating the incident as suspected attempted traffic endangerment and suspected petty assault.

Similar incident on Tuesday

Police are also investigating a similar incident that allegedly took place on a bus driving through south-west Finland on Tuesday afternoon.

That bus, which had five passengers, began its journey in Turku and had nearly reached its final stop in Loimaa. A male passenger got up from his seat, walked to the driver and grabbed the steering wheel, turning the bus into the other lane according to police.

CEO of the bus company Petri Valtanen said the bus veered into the opposite lane and grazed the side of another bus travelling in the opposite direction. The driver of the other bus swerved out of the way, resulting in only the side mirrors of the buses being damaged.

"If the driver in the other bus hadn't reacted [so quickly] it would have been a head-on collision," Valtanen.

The driver of the bus with the alleged attacker in it stopped the vehicle at a nearby bus stop and managed to get the man outside with help from passengers and called police.


          Thousands in Finland may have missed measles vaccine      Cache   Translate Page      

People born in the 1970s in Finland may be lacking the measles vaccine to protect them against the illness, which is highly contagious. The information came to light last week following a case of measles contracted by an unvaccinated child in Larsmo, Ostrobothnia, last week. Since then government ministers and doctors have emphasized the importance of vaccinating children.

According to the THL (National Institute for Health and Welfare), people of all ages should ensure that they are protected. "If you don’t have the vaccination, it should be taken." The agency noted that because measles was relatively rare in the early 70s many people born at that time may not have been vaccinated.

Many of these adults have received vaccinations later, for example in the army, when about to embark on a trip, during their student years, or from occupational health care.

"If you’re unsure about whether you’ve received the vaccination, you should definitely take it. There’s no harm from taking an extra vaccination,” says THL specialist Mia Kontio.

The THL expert said she also falls into the category of adults who didn’t receive the vaccination.

”I was born in 1972 and I haven’t received the vaccination. l got measles in the 1990s when I lived abroad. I ended up [in hospital] on a drip for five days as I was in such poor shape,” says Kontio.

Measles vaccinations for all from 1975

People born before 1970, according to THL’s Kontio, have a greater likelihood of contracting measles. Measles epidemics rage in Finland approximately every five to seven years.

"Almost all those born before 1970 have the vaccination against the illness," she adds.

The measles vaccination was adopted into the Finnish national vaccination programme in 1975, when children at the age of one were inoculated. They were given the vaccination in one shot. From the year 1982, the vaccination was given as two doses and those who had previously received only one shot were given a second.

For those who have received only one vaccination, a second shot or booster should be taken says Kontio in order to improve the efficacy.

There are others born in the late 1970s who for some reason or other didn’t get vaccinated, for example, their parents didn't want them to take the jab.

Vaccination free at clinics

The MMR (called MPR in Finnish) vaccination is free at healthcare centres in Finland.

Before the days of online medical records, vaccinations and illnesses were recorded on vaccination cards, with the measles shot marked as the MMR vaccine.

"If you find your vaccination card, but are unsure of the markings on it, it’s possible to call the health centre and have them explain to you,” says Kontio.

If there are no records or information about whether a patient has been vaccinated or contracted measles, the recommendation is to go and get the vaccine at a local health centre.

The measles vaccine is free and is administered as part of the MMR shot, which also provides protection against rubella and mumps.

          Police warn of online predators as suspected sex abuse cases uncovered in Oulu      Cache   Translate Page      

The Oulu police department is advising young girls and their parents to be on the lookout for sexual predators active on social media. According to police, foreign-background men with poor Finnish-language skills have tried to make online contact with "significantly younger" underaged girls in the Oulu area. Some of these contacts have led to suspicion of aggravated sexual abuse, the police said.

The Oulu police said it has recently been informed of dozens of cases where adult men try to lure young girls online. "That's the reason for our warning," said Detective Superintendent Markus Kiiskinen.

However, the warning mostly applies to one group of online predators and hopefully will not tarnish the reputation of all migrants, police added. "I hope this will not result in more racism. The police would like to emphasise that not all people with foreign backgrounds are dishonest or criminals," Kiiskinen said.

The police also said parents should take an interest in who their child spends time with both online and offline.

Three sex crime cases

Police are currently investigating three separate cases where migrant men are suspected of sexually abusing children in Oulu.

In one case, a group of men is suspected of sexually exploiting a girl between 10-14 years for a period of several months. The abuse took place in private residences in Oulu. Seven men have been arrested for assault, aggravated sexual abuse of a child and aggravated rape, however no charges have yet been laid.

The two other cases occurred during one day and took place outdoors in the Tuira neighbourhood of Oulu. The victims were also under 15 years of age, police said. These cases are being investigated as sexual abuse of a minor, and aggravated sexual abuse and rape of a child, respectively. Police have released the suspect in the first case, but continue to hold the other suspect in custody.

All suspects had arrived in Finland as refugees or asylum seekers, police indicated. Some are Finnish citizens and some have been granted refugee status, while the rest are awaiting asylum decisions. The suspects come from four different countries and are between 20 and 30 years of age, with the exception of one who is over 30.

In reaction to the news, Interior Minister Kai Mykkänen told tabloid Iltalehti that the criteria for granting Finnish citizenship should be tightened.


          Alphabet's drone delivery service Wing to pilot in Finland      Cache   Translate Page      

The drone delivery service firm Wing - owned by Google's parent company Alphabet Inc. - has plans to pilot its European service in Finland next spring. Finland will be the company's first foray into Europe.

Wing CEO James Burgess made the announcement at Slush, the startup and investor conference in Helsinki on Tuesday.

He said the company chose Finland because of its reputation around the world for rapidly embracing new technologies, as well as the local climate.

"If drones can fly here in Finland they can fly anywhere," Burgess said.

The company has already made test runs of its small, unmanned, multi-bladed copters in the south-central city of Tampere.

Burgess said it plans to start operations in the Helsinki region in spring of next year.

Wing's drones can carry loads up to 1.5 kg and are able to deliver consumer goods, food, medicine and other supplies "within minutes of ordering them."

The CEO said he wants to hear about what kinds of services people in Finland would like to see provided by Wing, adding that the company wants to build the service together with consumers.

If and when Wing launches the pilot programme in Helsinki, it won't be the first time a company has tested drones in the country. In 2015, Finland's postal service Posti trialled deliveries of packages using the autonomous flying devices.

Australian trial started in 2012

For the past six years Wing has been testing drones in Australia and has been reviewing the customer experience of drone deliveries in the country's southeastern region for the past one-and-a-half years.

Wing said that drone deliveries are a faster, more environmentally friendly and safer way of transporting goods than via land.

The firm said that in 60,000 flights over 18 months in Australia, drone emissions were 16-22 times lower than traditional vehicle deliveries on the roads, noting that the drones run on energy-efficient batteries.

The use of drones also helps reduce vehicle emissions and traffic on streets and highways, according to the company.

          Wednesday's papers: Stricter citizenship requirements, dead lion and car prices      Cache   Translate Page      

Reacting to news that seven men with foreign background are suspected of the sexual abuse and rape of an underaged girl in Oulu, Interior Minister Kai Mykkänen told tabloid Iltalehti that the criteria for granting Finnish citizenship should be stricter.

"It is scandalous for anyone to think that this is the way to act in Finnish society," Mykkänen said.

Police suspect the girl who is under 15 had been abused over a period of several months. Some of the suspects are Finnish citizens.

According to Mykkänen, more needs to be done to educate people migrating to Finland. "Finnish rules are based on gender equality and the right to live free from harassment, without an exception," he noted.

"While the current integration programme into the Finnish society includes education about the country, we need to see how migrants could to a larger degree commit to our values and rules."

In addition, the minister called for improvement in the co-operation between police, child protection and health services. "Especially in long-term sexual abuse cases, which the one in Oulu seems to be, the exchange of information between different organisations may help uncover such wrongdoing earlier," Mykkänen noted.

A new law, which will speed up the repatriation of foreigners convicted of serious crimes in Finland, will go into force at the start of next year, Iltalehti writes.

Mohan the lion dies

Daily Helsingin Sanomat reports that Mohan, a male lion in the Korkesaari Zoo, has died. Despite medication, Mohan increasingly suffered from leg and joint pain during the last year of his life, and was therefore euthanised on Tuesday, HS writes.

Mohan – an Asiatic lion – came to the zoo as a two-year-old from Germany in 2004 and lived to be 16 years, the paper said.

Zoo manager Sanna Hellström said Mohan was known for his loud roars in the evening. "Mohan acted quite indifferently towards zoo visitors, but he guarded his pride closely ," she added.

Two female Asiatic lions remain in the zoo, which plans to form a new pride, HS said.

"There can only be one male per pride and there tends to be an oversupply of male lions. We need to see what the situation is at European zoos at the moment," Hellström explained.

The zoo works with Asiatic lion conservation specialists to decide how to best protect the vitality of the species. Asiatic lions are an endangered species: only 600 of them exist in a small area of north-western India, HS said.

Car prices fall

Meanwhile, government's surprise move to slash car taxes has had an immediate effect, writes Kauppalehti. According to the paper, many importers have already reduced prices, while others will introduce lower prices at the start of January.

Based on calculations by the Finnish Central Organisation for Motor Trades and Repairs, the cost of a car will decrease by 750 euros on average, Kauppalehti said.

In an unexpected move on Monday, Finland's finance ministry said will adjust the country's emissions-based vehicle tax, thereby levelling out a previous tax hike for owners of cars that pollute more than others.

Kauppalehti writes that the price of a Mercedes-Benz E220d 4Matic Business AMG has fallen by more than 1,900 euros to about 66,900 euros, while buyers would now be able to snatch a Toyota Yaris 1,5 Hybrid for slightly less than 20,000 euros, a discount of 560 euros from the previous price.

Home-made card, most valued Christmas greeting: Study

Culture

DF Report

Finns value mailed Christmas cards above all other types of Christmas greeting. The most important reason to send Christmas cards is to make the recipient happy, said a study report.

National Postal and Logistic Services operator Posti and IRO Research have conducted a study to find out the status of different Christmas greetings in Finland, said a Posti press release.

In October, Posti and IRO Research asked 1,000 Finns about their opinion on how important cards are as a form of holiday greeting. According to the responses, it seems cards are viewed as very important.

Two thirds of all Finns (66%) are planning to send Christmas cards or letters this year. Only 17% of the respondents are not planning to send any kinds of Christmas greetings.

The most important reason for Finns to send out Christmas cards is to make the recipient happy (94%). Maintaining Christmas traditions (85%) and reciprocity (81%) are other important motives for sending cards.

The motivations vary slightly among different genders. Men are more likely to send cards out of a sense of duty, whereas women are more interested in making the recipient happy and having the opportunity to make their own cards.

The respondents were also asked to select the Christmas greeting they value the most. Four out of ten (40%) preferred Christmas cards made by the sender and sent by mail. The next most valued were purchased cards sent by mail, cards made from your own photos and Christmas letters. E-mails and text messages and personal and public social media messages received a total of 6% of all votes.

“All respondent groups liked home-made cards. Their popularity indicates that Finns value Christmas greetings that have required a bit of effort. That people want to make the recipient happy means that Christmas is a special time. It’s the season of giving and personal relationships. A Christmas greeting carried to your doorstep brings people closer even when they don’t normally keep in touch,” said  Johanna Rouhe, Product Manager at Posti.

The most affordable way to mail Christmas cards is with a Christmas no-value indicator stamp (EUR 1.05), for example through the red envelope meant for mailing Christmas greetings. This year, the last mailing date for cards with a Christmas no-value indicator stamp is December 12. Cards with a regular domestic no-value indicator stamp (EUR 1.50) will reach their recipients by Christmas if they are mailed by December 19.

“A home-made Christmas card must be sent in an envelope. It won’t make the price higher, but the card will stay in better shape,” Rouhe added.

Buoyant British construction sector held back by Brexit uncertainties

DF-Xinhua Report

The British construction sector grew more than expected in November, but Brexit uncertainties are holding back firms from committing to starting building projects, a new survey revealed on Tuesday.  

   Construction activity improved to a four-month high in November and was at the second highest level since June 2017, according to the IHS Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), led by more house building.  

   Activity hit 53.4 in November on the scale (above 50 is growth) up slightly from October, and civil engineering and commercial sectors also performed well, with confidence strengthening and employment rising strongly and new orders growth picking up.  

   But the growth in new orders was limited and the survey showed headwinds hampering growth.

   "New orders growth improved from the five-month low seen in October, although it was still at the second lowest level since May and significantly below the long-term average," said Dr Howard Archer, chief economic adviser with EY ITEM Club, a London-based economic forecasting group.  

   "Some companies' willingness to commit to major new projects at this stage is being limited by Brexit uncertainties and concerns over the economy," Archer added.  

   "Similarly, confidence among construction companies improved in November but again was still clearly below long-term norms, Brexit-related concerns were reported to be the main factor weighing on confidence."

Britain's House of Commons becomes Brexit battleground

DF-Xinhua Report

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the five day Brexit debate which started Tuesday evening in the House of Commons will set the course Britain takes for decades to come.

   The historic chamber was crammed with lawmakers in what has been described as one of the most crucial debates in a generation in British politics.

   Next Tuesday MPs will vote on whether to support or reject a deal agreed between May's government and the European Union on Britain's future relationship with Brussels.

   The start of the Brexit debate was delayed for hours after Speaker of the House John Bercow allowed MPs to discuss whether May's government was in contempt of parliament. MPs said the contempt arose because the government refused  an order from the House of Commons to publish the full legal advice on the Brexit deal from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox.

   In what was a rare procedure in the British Houses of Parliament, by a vote of 311 to 283, MPs decided the government was in contempt.

   Leader of the House Andrea Leadsom said the full advice would now be published by the government on Wednesday.

   MPs want to read the full document to see the precise advice given by Cox on the arrangements over the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, which will continue to be an EU member after Britain leaves the bloc next March.

   Sir Keir Starmer, Labour's main Brexit spokesman, said later: "Today's finding of contempt is a badge of shame for this government. It is of huge constitutional and political significance. Never before has the House of Commons found Ministers in contempt of Parliament. Ministers left the opposition with no option but to bring forward these proceedings."

   May said in her opening statement that the Brexit debate had been corrosive to politics in Britain.

   She said Britain had joined what was the EEC at its third attempt in 1973, and two years later there was a referendum in which a third of the people said they wanted to leave.

   In the 2016 referendum the majority of people voted that it wanted to leave the EU, and now the government was honoring that decision of the people.

   She added: "What I believe is important is that we respect the views of those who voted leave and deliver Brexit. We also recognise that we do need to protect the trading relationship and ensure that we protect the jobs that rely on that trading relationship."

   May told how she had spent nearly two years negotiating the Brexit deal, adding: "I have lost valued colleagues along the way and faced fierce criticism from all sides."

   Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the main opposition Labour Party said May's deal would leave Britain over a barrel.

   He said that under the deal, Britain would face, at the end of a Brexit implementation period in December 2020, a choice of either paying more and extend the transition period or fall into the backstop arrangement over the Irish border.

   "At that point Britain would be over a barrel," said Corbyn, adding that Britain would have to abide by EU rules.

   "Under the Prime Minister's deal the UK is not taking back control, it is losing control," said Corbyn.

   Corbyn, who favors a general election to decide the Brexit issue, said if the government loses the vote on December 11 it will have lost the confidence of the House of Commons.

   He told MPs: "There isn't a deal, there is a framework for the partnership, a blindfold Brexit and MPs won't vote for a leap in the dark," he said, adding that May's agreement it's a bridge to nowhere.

   Corbyn said there was an alternative to May's Brexit, saying Labour will vote against what is a bad deal for the country.

   Vince Cable, leader of the minority Liberal Democrats, said the credibility of May's deal is evaporating

   "This is now a Government on the ropes," said Cable, adding that May's majority has evaporated, and the credibility of her deal is evaporating with it."

   Cable added: "The House of Commons is now very likely to defeat the government next week on the Brexit deal, at which point the country must be given a People's Vote, and asked to choose between the deal or remaining in the EU."

   Nigel Dodds, the deputy leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) said his party does not fear the prospect of a snap general election.

   May's minority government relies on support from the 10 DUP MPs at Westminster to give her a majority.

   So far the DUP has said it will vote against May's deal.

   Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who quit in protest at May's Brexit deal, said he hopes the House of Commons will vote against the deal next week.

   Johnson said: "Now is the time, thinking about the EU's attitude towards us, to say they have underestimated this country and government."

University of Chicago opens campus in Hong Kong

DF-Xinhua Report

The University of Chicago (UChicago) has opened its Hong Kong Campus to serve as a regional hub for research, education and collaboration, according to a report released on the school's website.

   The university held a ceremony to celebrate the opening of its Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex, or the UChicago Francis and Rose Yuen Campus in China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) on Nov. 30.

   "We are proud to open the Hong Kong campus, which represents a long-term commitment by the University of Chicago to a wide range of academic collaborations and other efforts that will make a positive social impact in Hong Kong (SAR) and Asia," said UChicago President Robert J. Zimmer during the ceremony.

   "It will be the next intellectual destination in the region, where scholars, researchers, students and alumni from around the world can benefit from many forms of intellectual exchange and engagement with the most pressing issues of our time," he said.

   UChicago HK SAR campus will also act as a home for the UChicago Booth School of Business's Executive MBA degree program and Booth Executive Education non-degree courses for local professionals. Moreover, the site will host activities from across the UChicago, including academic workshops, conferences and public lectures as well as the University's undergraduate study abroad programs.

   "We are thrilled about the opening of our new facility in Hong Kong," said Bala Srinivasan, vice president of strategy and innovation, deputy provost, and chief international officer. "Not only will it serve as a base for existing programs offered by the university, it will allow our faculty and students to engage more fully in a part of the world that is increasingly important to the global economy, through new educational programs and research partnerships."

Fertility rate decreases in all women's educational groups

DF Report

The total fertility rate has decreased in all women's educational groups after 2010, when the present decrease in the birth rate started, according to Statistics Finland.

The fertility rate of women with basic level education has gone down by 25 per cent and that of those with tertiary level education by 24 per cent from 2010. The fertility rate has diminished slightly less among those with upper secondary level education, by 20 per cent.

The total fertility rate is commonly used in measuring fertility. It indicates how many children a woman would give birth to calculatorily during her life time if fertility rates remained the same as in the year on which the calculation is based.

The data concern here only mothers and fathers born in Finland. A share of qualifications taken abroad are missing from Statistics Finland's Register of Completed Education and Degrees, for which reason the qualification data of many persons born abroad are deficient.

The fall in the total fertility rate has been similar for men to that for women. However, the change from 2010 has been steeper in all men’s educational groups.

For men with tertiary level education, the total fertility rate has decreased by 28 per cent and for those with basic level education by 27 per cent since 2010. The fertility rate has diminished slightly less among those with upper secondary level education, by 22 per cent.

The share of childless women aged 25 to 29 and 35 to 39 born in Finland by level of education. Not all persons aged 25 to 29 have necessarily completed their highest qualification yet and their number of children is not final either, but changes in the birth rate at that age reflect part of the general fall in the birth rate.

The birth rate in general has declined considerably from 2010 to 2017. Measured by the total fertility rate, it diminished in seven years by 20 per cent, from 1.87 children per woman to 1.49 children per woman. The total fertility rate can be broken down by the order number of the child born.

Italy arrests new Mafia "godfather" in major raid in Sicily

DF-Xinhua Report

Italian police arrested 46 suspected high-ranking members of the Sicilian Mafia in a dawn raid on Tuesday, including 80-year-old Settimo Mineo, considered the heir to mafia "godfather" Salvatore Riina, who died in prison in November 2017.

   Mineo, a jeweler, is thought to have been named as the new head of Sicily's Cosa Nostra Mafia during a May 29 summit of Mafia clans, prosecutors told reporters at a televised press conference.

   "The clan leaders wanted to identify a discipline that would be shared by all (the clans) in connection with the new Mafia, which projects itsef towards the entire globe and towards the business world, and which co-manages its affairs along with the other (Italian organized crime groups such as) the 'Ndrangheta and the Camorra," National Anti-Mafia Prosecutor Federico Cafiero De Raho told TV reporters.

   In a tweet, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini praised today's "extraordinary action" in the Sicilian city of Palermo, where police "dismantled the new Cosa Nosta leadership...guilty of extortion, arson, and assaults."

   The suspects face charges including racketeering, aggravated extortion, illegal weapons, and arson, Italian news agency ANSA reported.

   Mineo first received a five-year prison sentence on Mafia charges in the so-called Maxi Trial in late 1980s, which featured almost 500 defendants and close to 400 convictions on organized crime charges, according to La Repubblica.

   The Maxi Trial was made possible by the groundbreaking work of a group of courageous magistrates, three of whom -- Rocco Chinnici, Paolo Borsellino and Giovanni Falcone -- were assassinated by the Mafia.

   Mineo was arrested again on Mafia-related charges in 2006 and spent another 11 years behind bars, RAI New 24 public broadcaster reported.

Number of irregular immigrants reaching Spain more than double

DF-Xinhua Report

The number of irregular immigrants traveling to Spain continues to rise, with 59,048 reaching the country in the southwest of Europe during the first 11 months of the year, according to data published by the Spanish Interior Ministry on Tuesday.

   The ministry said this is an increase of 129 percent on the 25,786 migrants who came to Spain in the first 11 months of 2017.

   52,795 of the migrants came to Spain by making the dangerous sea crossing of the Mediterranean Sea, which separates Spain from the coast of Morocco just 14 kilometers away at the narrowest point.

   November saw 11,543 arrivals. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said that at least 114 people lost their lives attempting the crossing in what was the most fatal month of 2018 for migrants attempting to reach Spain.

   According to the IOM, 90 people died attempting to reach Spain in October, 99 in September and 68 in August.

   As well as the 52,795 people who reached Spain by the maritime route, a further 6,253 reached Spanish territory by crossing into the Spain's two north African enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, either by being smuggled through frontier posts or scaling the double 6 meter high razor wire which makes up the border fence.

   The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that 21.4 percent of all irregular migrants to Spain come from Morocco, 20.9 percent from Equatorial Guinea and 15.9 percent from Mali.

Police force’s operating direction changes rapidly

DF Report

The direction in which the police force’s operating environment has changed and is changing at an ever increasing pace, said National Police Board.

Cyber crime, hybrid threats, terrorism, organised crime, trafficking in human beings, mobile organised property crime and these are examples of the direction in which the police force’s operating environment.

The police have sought to react to this by appointing a project administrator, who recommended 73 measures to enhance crime prevention. These recommendations are included in the final report of the project ‘Report on the crime prevention situation’.

National Police Commissioner Seppo Kolehmainen finds the report critical to the development of crime prevention.

“In my opinion, it was crucially important to prepare this report now, because the previous similar report was made 15 years ago and the police force’s operating environment has seen remarkable changes,” said Kolehmainen.

The project administrator was Tero Kurenmaa, Deputy Director of the National Bureau of Investigation. He worked as project administrator, appointed by the National Police Board, from 1 April to 30 September 2018. Later, he was appointed Director of the National Bureau of Investigation.

According to Tero Kurenmaa, the purpose of the report was to form a comprehensive view of the development needs in crime prevention.

The state of crime prevention was investigated by interviewing all parties playing a key role in crime prevention. A total of 120 persons participated in the 28 interviews conducted. In addition, police officers were interviewed.

Crime prevention was last studied in Finland 15 years ago, in a report prepared by the Police Department of the Ministry of the Interior (publication 4/2003). The 47 recommendations given were mainly related to property, financial and drug-related crimes.

According to Tero Kurenmaa, the police have been able to assess the different types of crime and challenges reasonably well, but not the extent of the changes or their speed.

“For example, terrorism did not emerge as a challenge for criminal investigation until in the 2010s, when it appeared in the form of terrorist financing, and after then when foreign combatants went abroad from Finland. The first ever incident classified as a terrorist offence in Finland took place in Turku in 2017,” said Kurenmaa.

Death rate from alcoholism in Britain highest for 10 years

DF-Xinhua Report

Alcohol-specific deaths in Britain have returned to the level of 10 years ago when it was the highest ever recorded, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said Tuesday.  

   Scotland, famed as the home of Scotch whisky, remains as the part of Britain with the highest rate of alcohol specific deaths, the report revealed.  

   Across Britain in 2017 there were 7,697 alcohol-specific deaths, equating to a rate of 12.2 deaths per 100,000 population.

   Since 2001 when the current system of records started rates of alcohol-specific deaths among males have been more than double those observed among females, 16.8 and 8.0 deaths per 100,000 in 2017 respectively).  

   The figures are based on people who died as a direct result of alcohol misuse, such as alcoholic liver disease.  

   Last year alcohol-specific death rates were highest among 55 to 59-year old females and 60 to 64-year-old males.

   Although Scotland had the highest rate of alcohol-specific deaths in 2017 it was the only part of Britain to experience a statistically significant 21 percent decrease in rates from 2001.  

   The report shows that Scotland has had the highest alcohol-specific death rate in Britain since the time series began in 2001, while England has had the lowest. The rate in Scotland in 2017 was 20.5 deaths per 100,000 people, while in England it was 11.1 deaths per 100,000 people. The alcohol-specific death rates in Wales and Northern Ireland in 2017 were 13.5 and 17.4 deaths per 100,000 people respectively.  

   Across England the rate of alcohol-specific deaths was highest in the North East region while London had the lowest rate (7.8 deaths per 100,000 people) of any region for the first time since 2011. With the exception of London, all regions have significantly higher alcohol-specific rates in 2017 than in 2001 in both men and women.  

   Although the alcohol-specific death rate in England remained the lowest in Britain at 7.4 deaths per 100,000 females, England was the only part of Britain to have a significant increase in the female rate since 2001.  

   It has seen an increase of 32 percent from 5.6 deaths per 100,000. In contrast, the female alcohol-specific death rate in 2017 for Scotland, at 11.6 deaths per 100,000, was the lowest since 2013, and a statistically significant decrease of 20 percent since 2001.

Rouhani says oil from Gulf to be disrupted if Iran sanctioned

DF-Xinhua Report

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday threatened that oil flow from the Gulf will be blocked if Iran cannot sell its crude under the U.S. pressures, state IRIB TV reported.

   The United States has announced that it will deprive Iran from oil sales and from trade with the world, Rouhani said in the Iranian northern city of Shahroud, Semnan Province.

   "The United States should know that we are selling and will continue to sell our oil and it will not be able to block Iran's oil exports," he said.

   "Besides, Washington should know that if it attempts to stop Iran's oil sales someday, no oil will be exported from the Gulf," he said.

   Following the U.S. President Donald Trump's withdrawal from Iran's 2015 international nuclear deal in May, Washington returned its sanctions against Iran and urged Iranian oil clients to refrain from crude imports from Iran.

Latvian PM designate unveils plan for five-party coalition government

DF-Xinhua Report

Latvia's prime minister designate Aldis Gobzems on Tuesday came up with his proposal regarding the distribution of ministerial posts in his cabinet, which according to his plan would include five political parties.

   Earlier in the morning, Gobzems announced that he was terminating negotiations with the sixth potential partner, the liberal alliance For Development/For, which in his words had been "torpedoing" the government formation process.

   According to Gobzems' plan, his KPV LV party would receive the office of prime minister, as well as the posts of finance and interior ministers.

   The New Conservative Party, whose leader Janis Bordans tried and failed to form a government in November, would be put in charge of the transport, education and science, health and justice ministries.

   The right-wing National Alliance has been offered the posts of environmental protection and regional development minister, welfare minister and culture minister. The centrist Greens and Farmers Union would be represented in the Gobzems-led cabinet with the ministers of agriculture and defense. The center-right New Unity party would get the portfolios of economics and foreign ministers.

   The political parties participating in the negotiations on Latvia's next government have yet to formulate their response to Gobzems' proposal. The New Conservative Party has so far been insisting on leaving the Greens and Farmers Union in opposition, and its response might prove decisive for Gobzems' chances of forming the five-party cabinet.

   "I am confident that the New Conservative Party will act in national interests, that it will not draw any red lines and will accept the Greens and Farmers Union's involvement in the government," Gobzems told journalists following Tuesday's talks.

Correspondingly, transportation offered by private persons had been used by four per cent of those aged 16 to 89 in the past three months.

Finland slow to adopt global medical marijuana trend

Patients seeking pain-relieving cannabis routes have been s frustrated by tight regulations, social stigma and widespread confusion

Cannabis - also known as marijuana - has long been considered a psychoactive, addictive and dangerous drug that is tightly controlled and regulated by governments around the world, including in Finland. However, recent research in the pharmaceutical and medical sectors suggests that some strains are safe for medicinal purposes and for the treatment of a number of conditions.

In Finland, CBD -- the lighter strain of cannabis used for medical treatments -- is only currently available in one product - Sativex® oral spray - as a treatment for severe muscular spasms in multiple sclerosis patients. Further uses of CBD as a medicinal product are decided on a case-by-case basis by Finland's pharmaceutical regulator, the Finnish Medicines Agency (FIMEA), the body responsible for supervising and developing the pharmaceutical sector in Finland.

Even in cases where CBD may become available, the threshold for receiving a prescription is high. Prescriptions can only be provided by specialists in neurology or doctors working in a neurological clinic, and only after patients have have not responded adequately to other anti-spasticity medication and who demonstrate clinically significant improvement in spasticity related symptoms during an initial trial of therapy.

          Police prepare for nationalist and far right marches on Independence Day, won’t ban Nazi salutes      Cache   Translate Page      

Helsinki will play host to marches by nationalists, Nazis and antifascist groups on Thursday as the city gears up for Finland’s 101st independence day. In recent years far-right marches have grown in size each Independence Day, with counter-protesters also making their presence felt.

The National Police Board said on Tuesday that it had laid out guidelines for handling the marches, with an emphasis on the judgement of officers on the ground trumping hard and fast rules for behaviour and crowd control.

Police will not, for instance, necessarily stop people making Nazi salutes during their demonstrations. Konsta Arvelin of the board noted that Nazi salutes were not permitted in Sweden, for example.

“And everyone can consider for themselves whether that kind of thing is appropriate in this society,” said Arvelin, who added that the Nordic Resistance Movement was already at the boundaries of legally acceptable behaviour as shown by court proceedings to outlaw the organisation.

Along with the PVL march (known as ‘for freedom’ or ‘kohti vapautta’) there will be a ‘612’ march of nationalists, along with the traditional torchlit procession of students through the city centre and a ‘Helsinki without Nazis parade.

The marches will have staggered start times, but it is possible there will be some clashes between different groups.

The guidelines prepared for police emphasise that the police aim to stay neutral.

“Police ensure everyone’s safety and security and also everyone’s right to free assembly and freedom of speech,” read the text. “That also means PVL members and their supporters.”

The guidelines state that in the first, most peaceful situation, police will ensure everyone’s right to freedom of speech. In the second and third levels of readiness, police can consider measures to restore order--but there are no hard and fast rules as to what they must do, with officers on the ground granted broad discretion as to their tactics.

Making the cut at Sundance is still a huge deal to director-screenwriter Helander.

"It is a real honour, not just for me but the whole production team. I hope inclusion in the festival will also open doors for everyone who worked on the film," Helander said.

Helander is known as a photographer and video artist who straddles the line between Sámi and Finnish culture. Her common themes include what she views as the post-colonial landscape of Sápmi and the scars left behind by the global mining industry.

Helander will also curate the renowned Mänttä Art Festival in Pirkanmaa in 2019.

"North America ripe for indigenous films"

Even though films from all over the world are featured at Sundance, those directed by indigenous filmmakers have a special place in North American film festivals in general, according to programme coordinator Tytti Rantanen from distributor AV-arkki.

"Sámi movies are welcomed by viewers in North America, but it seems to me that Helander's film goes above and beyond this 'box' in terms of popularity," Rantanen said. "This is a great new step after Katja Gauriloff's Kuun metsän Kaisa ["Kaisa's Enchanted Forest", 2016] did well at Toronto's Hot Docs festival, and shows that there is an appreciation for the high quality and diverse vantages of Sámi films."

Director Helander also says that Sámi films doing well in the world is a big deal.

"It is always great when opportunities like this open up new future paths. It is a chance to communicate with the world about the issues facing Sámi people under institutional pressures."

The last time a Finnish short film was included in the official lineup of the Sundance festival was with Jenni Toivoniemi's 2013 film Treffit ("The Date").

Sundance showcases about 200 films in total, 73 of which are short films – taken from a pool of more than 9,000 submissions. In 2018 some 124,900 people visited Park City, Utah for the festival.


          Will Smith, Shaq invest millions in Finnish wearables firm      Cache   Translate Page      

US movie star Will Smith, basketball veteran Shaquille O’Neal and other investors have pledged about 17.5 million euros to the Finnish startup firm Oura Health, according to Bloomberg news.

The news outlet reports that Oura's latest funding round was led by MSD Capital raised about 4.5 million euros.

The company, which shipped its first rings near the end of 2015, said the funding will be used towards increased production. Oura's latest models of rings - which track and record a person's pulse, temperature and sleep patterns - range in price from 314 euros to more than 1,000 euros.

US computer and smartphone giant Apple is pursuing the wearable fitness market with its Apple Watch. But some industry insiders say that people often do not wear smart watches to monitor their sleep because their batteries are usually being recharged overnight.

Oura's rings, according to the company, can be charged in less than an hour with a battery life of around 2 to 3 days.

A market research firm said the wearables and health tracker market is expected to grow to nearly 10 billion euros by 2025, according to Bloomberg.


          PM Sipilä hails Slush as 'best day of the year'      Cache   Translate Page      

Finland's Prime Minister Juha Sipilä has lauded the Slush startup event as one of the highlights of the calendar as thousands of participants descend on Helsinki during one of the darkest weeks of the year.

The event, which is named for the grey matter that usually cakes the city streets in the winter months, is a cause for optimism among Finland's movers and shakers.

Slush organisers want to drive home the point that tech entrepreneurs are today's rock stars. This perspective carried into the event itself which resembled a music concert. Attendees were greeted with smoke emitted by fog machines, the halo of neon lights and thumping techno beats.

"This is nothing like the investor shows or business fairs that I've seen," one UK tech startup said.

All attendees are required to wear wristbands, with reporters collecting their accreditation ahead of the event expected to wear the single-use plastic wristbands for days in the lead-up to Slush, arguably adding to the concert-like atmosphere.

"We've had trouble with people abusing their media passes," one Slush student volunteer told Yle News last Saturday.

"This is almost the best day of the year," Sipilä told Yle News. "I have been here every year. This is very important to see - the entrepreneurship of students and young people. This is something we really need."

The Oulu MP, who made millions when he sold his IT business in the 1990s, said that the main positive to Slush is the chance to meet important figures from around the world.

"Of course there is a gain but I am looking to the future - young companies connecting with finance and networking with other people - this is very important for the government," said Sipilä.

Finland has worked hard to overcome the fall of mobile giant Nokia, with multiple startups like gaming firm Supercell and the annual Slush event helping bring together the tech and startup scenes in the country.

Super networking and FOMO

With thousands of attendees milling around the venue, Yle News asked investors whether the event provided meaningful interaction with budding companies.

"It's not like investors are here competing with each other to sign deals, it's just very focused networking," said Tal Amir, an Israeli investor, echoing comments from many other investors looking for new companies.

"Space and electrical scooters will be hot in 2019," said Bindi Karia, a London-based business matchmaker, highlighting Iceye, a Finnish microsatellite company funded by venture capital from Jyri Engeström, a co-founder of Jaiku, a mobile social network that sold to Google.

"Slush is great because 'everyone' comes here," she added.

Business builders as keynote speakers

Over the past 11 years, the goal of Slush is to facilitate meetings between start-ups founders and investors. Last year the event helped to organise some 7,000 individual of those meetings, according to Andreas Saari, Slush's CEO.

The event is held in the giant, dark caverns of the Helsinki Exhibition and Convention Centre, and illuminated with fog machines, laser and light projectors more commonly seen at pop music shows.

"I'm glad I upped my epilepsy medication this morning," one American attendee told Yle News amidst the pulsating strobe lights.

Organisers of the event report that they expect decreased attendance by businesses and investors from Nordic countries compared to a couple of years ago, but said there's increased interest from just about everywhere else.

Major corporations dominated much of the prime real estate near the speaker stages, including tech behemoths such as Facebook and Google as well as a plethora of investment banks.

For example, some 450 management-level reps from major European companies are expected this year. The event will also attract about 650 journalists, including ones from the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Forbes, as well as thousands of lawyers and other service providers looking for new clients.

Last year the event's keynote speaker was former US Vice President Al Gore, but according to Saari this year the event features people who helped build successful companies themselves.

Some of this year's speakers include Amazon's CTO and VP Werner Vogels, Google's VP Bradley Horowitz and Spotify's strategy operations chief Katarina Berg.


          Finland rejigs emissions-based car taxes      Cache   Translate Page      

In September Finland adjusted the registration tax table based on data from research centre of the EU Commission's JRC (Joint Research Centre).

But in an unexpected move on Monday, the finance ministry said it is adjusting the country's emissions-based vehicle tax again, effectively levelling-out the tax hike for owners of cars that pollute more than others on the roads.

The changes are expected to be presented to lawmakers on Wednesday, but finance minister Petteri Orpo said the new tax scheme was already in effect on Monday.

Without these changes the tax burden would have increased annually by some 90 million euros, according to an assessment reached by the ministry.

The sudden move should avoid delayed purchases as people wait for greater discounts before buying new vehicles. Finland has some of the highest taxes on new car purchases in the EU.

The ministry said that according to a newly-implemented measuring system, Finland's overall vehicle emissions levels will not be affected by the changes.

The new scheme is based on data from the Technical Research Centre of Finland, VTT.

To assure a tax neutral result, the ministry's new scheme is based on actual WLTP (the EU'S Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure) and NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) measurements of carbon dioxide emission values collected from the new registrations by VTT.

The WLTP guidelines were the replacement for a lab test called the New European Driving Cycle designed in the 1980s.

Auto dealers pleased

Managing director of Finland's Association of Automobile Importers, Tero Kallio said he is pleased with the ministry's decision.

"This is good. When the new way of measuring emissions was introduced around Europe in September, it raised the emissions results of vehicles and also raised the taxes on them. This adjustment neutralises the raised tax," Kallio said, adding that Finland was the first country to make such a change.

Kallio praised the government's initiative and said that the cost of a medium-priced car with medium emissions level car will decrease by about a thousand euros, and that he is expecting to see an increase in interested car buyers.

Edit: Updated at 5.44pm on 5 December to reflect the fact that VTT does not have its test procedure or determine emissions targets for vehicles in Finland. Rather, the agency reviewed the current system of taxes and proposed a reduction in the rates. Edited at 7.35pm on 5 December to amend errors regarding the technical basis of the changes.

          Antique trams find new homes near and far      Cache   Translate Page      

Helsinki City Transport (HKL) handed over five antique trams to new owners on Monday after a competition to see where the decommissioned vehicles would be best suited.

The HKL competition prompted 94 applications from across the country to receive the trams free of charge. Three of the trams will remain in Helsinki, while two will be transported to the city of Mikkeli in Eastern Finland. The recipients must pay for the relocation themselves.

HKL intends for the rest of the streetcars to help promote innovative urban culture through respect for the old machines.

Vanha raitiovaunu hallissa.#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000
This tram will grace the yard of the Kustaankartano service home in Helsinki.

HKL CEO Ville Lehmuskoski handed over the trams to the recipients in a small ceremony on Monday. The new owners are tram appreciation society Stadin Ratikat, which organises museum tram rides in Helsinki; the Kustaankartano care home for the elderly; academic collective Allegra Lab and the Helsinki Distilling Company jointly; and finally the city of Mikkeli.

"We liked Mikkeli's suggestion the most," said Lehmuskoski.

The two trams, from 1958 and 1959, will be placed on display in the Mikkelipuisto park. A small segment of tram tracks is included.

City technical director Jouni Riihelä says he is overjoyed that Mikkeli will now become a "tram city".

"We'll be using these venerable trams for positive marketing for our city, with a glimmer in our eye," he said. "We already have a grid system and lots of urban culture – all we needed for a trifecta were these tram cars."

Culture hub, nursing home

Three trams will remain in the capital.

Wooden tram car number 91 from 1923 will find its way to the Teurastamo cultural centre. It will be used for experimental art and science exhibitions and performances, as well as a potential nighttime karaoke experience.

Car number 320 went to the Kustaankartano care home, where the elderly inhabitants can soon take a walk down memory lane thanks to the new piece of history.

"Two of our customers used to work as tram conductors back in the day," said service centre chief Tarja Sanio. "I hope they will be well enough to visit this tram soon."

The oldest tram is from 1916, and will be professionally restored so that Stadin Ratikat can use it on museum tours.

SpaceX launches 64 small satellites in single mission

DF-Xinhua Report

U.S. private spaceflight company SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket carrying 64 small satellites from Vandenberg Air Force Base in the state of California on Monday.

   The mission, dubbed SSO-A, or "SmallSat Express," set a U.S. launch record for most satellites put into space at a single time. It is also SpaceX's first flight to reuse the Falcon 9 first-stage booster a third time.

   The rocket blasted off from Space Launch Complex 4 at the air force base at 10:34 a.m. PST (1834 GMT), after a series of delays triggered by bad weather and additional last-minute inspections for the rocket.

   At about two minutes and 21 seconds after liftoff, SpaceX confirmed first stage main engine cutoff.

   Following stage separation, the first stage of the rocket successfully landed on the "Just Read the Instructions" droneship stationed in the Pacific Ocean, SpaceX tweeted. It completed Falcon 9's third launch and landing this year.

   Later on, SpaceX confirmed second stage engine cutoff and successful deployment of four microsats and the upper and lower free flyer with additional payloads for SSO-A.

   SSO-A marks the largest single "ride share" mission from a U.S.-based launch vehicle to-date. The Falcon 9 carried to a Sun Synchronous orbit 64 spacecraft, in particular 15 Micro satellites and 49 cubesats, from 34 different organizations from 17 countries.

   Arranged by a Seattle-based company called Spaceflight Industries, Monday's launch is SpaceX's 19th mission of 2018.

   The payloads, which vary from technology demonstrations and imaging satellites to educational research endeavors, are from universities, startups and middle school from 17 countries, according to Spaceflight.

   A series of six deployments will occur approximately 13-43 minutes after liftoff, after which Spaceflight will begin to command its own deployment sequences. Spaceflight's deployments are expected to occur over a period of six hours, according to SpaceX.

   "We've developed a deployment sequence that's based off a high-fidelity analysis that we did specifically to make sure our customers don't collide into each other upon deployment, so we're taking our time," said Jeff Roberts, Spaceflight's SSO-A mission manager.

   "We make sure that we phase that to maximize the distance in separation between all of our customers," he said.

   According to Roberts, these spacecraft range in size from a refrigerator to ones as small as a cell phone, and their missions are even more diverse.

Helsinki Airport turns 5G 1st in whole world

DF Report

Helsinki Airport has become the first 5G airport in the world, as Finavia, the operator of the country’s airports, and the telecommunication company Telia on Monday launched a 5G network-based robot project at the airport.

The project aims at exploring the possibilities of using 5G in airport operations and bringing new kinds of experiences to passengers, said a Finavia press release.

It also means Finavia is Telia’s first customer using the pre-commercial 5G network in Finland.

The 5G robot operates in the non-Schengen area of T2 terminal. Telia and Finavia will study how passengers and airport personnel react and interact with an autonomous robot carrying out service tasks.

“The robot can deliver real-time video stream from the terminal and enable, for example, monitoring the terminal area through remote or autonomous control and see that everything is running as it should. The robot can also guide passengers in the terminal, and we aim to try different other uses of it during the project,” said Finavia Chief Digital Officer Heikki Koski.

The data transmission and control of the robot is carried over a 5G base station at the airport. The network based on Nokia’s technology utilises 28 GHz frequency band – the higher frequency band allocated for 5G. This is for the first time this so called millimetre waves are being used for 5G in a public use case in Finland.

Telia Finland 5G Program Director Janne Koistinen said, “5G will start with enterprise customers, especially for industrial automation and remote control. The low-latency connection and massive capacity of 5G will serve the airport well with its masses of passengers and data, and with the focus on security and fluency of services.”

Aalto students design First Lady’s Independence Day gown

DF Report

Students of the Aalto University Emma Saarnio and Helmi Liikanen have designed the gown of First Landy Jenni Haukio for the Independence Day dress, which evokes nature with exquisite materiality and minimalist lines.

The country’s most watched event will get a dose of nature this year as  Haukio will wear the gown made of 100% birch-based fabric to the 6 December reception at Helsinki’s Presidential Palace, said a press release issued by Aalto University. 

‘The starting point for designing the dress was the second century of Finland’s independence, which will bring more ecological ways of thinking, new sustainable materials and a new generation of designers. I wanted to make an outfit that complements the wearer’s personality and reflects the material’s origins,’ said Saarnio, an Aalto University student of fashion and clothing design, who designed the gown.

‘In the design I’ve combined Finnish traditions while at the same time looking to the future. I took inspiration from strong Finnish women, who are represented in the dress’ minimalist features and clear lines. The dress is a promise of a cleaner, brighter future,’ she explained.

Textile design student Helmi Liikanen, who designed the unique fabric, shares: ‘I wanted to use Ioncell material in an elegant and festive way. I designed the weave to have a structural, living surface, which highlights the unique material. This project really brings tradition and innovation together.’

70% members of PVL, SoO have criminal records

DF Report

About 70 per cent of the active members of SuomenVastarintaliike (Finnish Resistance Movement), the Finnish chapter of the neo-Nazi group Nordic Resistance Movement (PVL), and the Soldiers of Odin have criminal backgrounds including violent crimes, reports a study commissioned by the national broadcaster Yle.

The Yle study found that the two far-right anti-immigrant groups maintain close ties with the Soldiers of Odin acting as an informal support group for the well-established PVL, reported Yle, adding that Soldiers of Odin, however, are afraid of facing ban like the PVL.

According to the study report, activists of these groups were convicted of a significantly higher number of crimes compared with the population at large and the crimes tend to be violent and property crimes.

Although the PVL members claim to use violence in self-defence only, court records show a different scenario.

The police said eight ideologically motivated crimes were committed by PVL members in 2011-16. The Yle also has learned that PVL members have been suspected of committing at least three other such crimes in the past two years.

Both far-left and far-right groups have been implicated in violence connected with marches on Independence Day (6 December), said the Yle report.

The PVL will march as usual this Thursday, despite the pending ban on its activities, the Yle report said quoting its leader Antti Niemi.

Niemi, who has not been convicted of many violent crimes, told Yle that his group does not consider criminal records when recruiting members.

Soldiers of Odin founder Mika Ranta, too, claimed criminal background is generally not relevant for his group, although it could be considered on a case-by-case basis, reported Yle.

Ranta himself has an extensive rap sheet. He was convicted of eight violent crimes in 2002-15 along with other offences, said the Yle report.

Lack of snow harms Lapland´s "white wonderland" image

DF-Xinhua Report

Winter tourism to Finnish Lapland has suffered from the unusual lack of snow this winter.

Particularly tourists from the United Kingdom have been disappointed. Several British tour organizers have canceled their charter flights.

Among the eleven chartered flights originally planned to land in Enontekio, northwestern Lapland during the last week, only three were actually flown, national broadcaster Yle reported.

Joni Nojonen, the director of the Tornio airport, told Yle that one of the Enontekio flights was canceled when it had already taken off from the UK. Nojonen underlined that the conditions at the airport did not cause the calling-off.

December charters from the UK have been a growing trend for over two decades. Finnish Lapland is marketed in the UK mainly as a "white snow winter wonderland". Earlier in November British travel writers described Lapland as "crapland".

Lack of snow has not affected incoming tourist flow from other countries and continents. In marketing for Asians, the possibility of seeing Northern Lights has been accentuated, and snow does not impact the availability of the Northern Lights. Northern lights are actually more evident against a dark terrain.

The Finnish Meteorological Institute told Yle earlier that in November the depth of snow in Lapland was the thinnest since measurements began in 1961. There were local differences though.

Juha-Pekka Mikkola, an entrepreneur offering activities to tourists, told Yle that alternative programming has been arranged, but purchased services have also been reimbursed. Rides in sleighs driven by huskies have been replaced with husky driven carriages.

Yle reported that in some tourist hotels snow from last winter has been storaged. But it has been used only in days with sub-zero temperatures, as in warm weather it would melt away soon. Service providers have also purchased snow.

For the pre-Christmas and Christmas weeks, some 700 charter flights have been planned. They are supposed to land in Kittilä, Rovaniemi, Ivalo, Enontekiö and Kuusamo airports.

Entrepreneur claims to build without EU funding

Business

DF-Xinhua Report

A private company claiming to build and operate a planned sub sea railroad tunnel between Finland and Estonia said on Monday the tunnel construction would cost 17 billion euros.

Talking to media in Helsinki, Finland's well-known entrepreneur Peter Vesterbacka pledged that trains would be running at the end of 2024.

Vesterbacka said his company, "Finest Bay Area" would not rely on local or EU-based public funding, but use private funding from Europe and Asia. He gave the share of Asian money as half of the project.

The Finnish government earlier determined that a tunnel project should belong to the EU core railway plan and be eligible for EU funding. The governments of Finland and Estonia have given no estimate of the cost or schedule of their plan.

Vesterbacka also indicated the private nature of the plan would make the project faster than when working via the public sector, contesting the government view that five to six years would be required for assessing the environmental impact.

Vesterbacka published the Dubai based Arj Holding LCC as the first investor in the plan. Their 100 million-euro input will be used for the planning of the project.

Vesterbacka said his company has recently had discussions in China. Asked whether Chinese state run companies would be involved, he said "of course project of this scale will involve state owned enterprises as well", but said "it is too early to go into detail in that".

Veterbacka pointed out that Helsinki and Tallinn are actually in the heart of Euroasia. He said that Finns are used to seeing the area at the northeastern corner of the map and tend to forget the dimension towards Asia.

He said ticket sales for the 2024 starting trip have begun. A return ticket is now selling at 100 euros. The travel time of one-way journey is to be 20 minutes.

Modric opens new chapter with Ballon d'Or award

DF-Xinhua Report

Midfielder Luka Modric playing for Real Madrid opened a new chapter in the Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball) history as he became the first Croatian to claim the best player award here on Monday.

   The 33-year-old Modric received his trophy during a ceremony held in the iconic Grand Palace in the French capital.

   "It feels amazing. I'm proud to win this beautiful award. It's difficult to express my emotions by words. It's something unique for me," admitted Modric.

   It was the latest recognition for his achievement and contribution throughout the year, following the UEFA Men's Player of the Year Award and the Best FIFA Men's Player.

   Modric ended the past decade dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the award, as the two superstars claimed it five times apiece. The Croatian had also terminated Ronaldo and Messi's 10-year duopoly in the FIFA award in September.

   Modric beat Ronaldo, Frenchman Antoine Griezmann and another France World Cup winning member Kylian Mbappe in the vote. Messi finished fifth.

   Prior to Modric's honor on Monday, Brazil's Kaka was the last one to have won the award in 2007 before Ronaldo and Messi's supremacy loomed.

   Modric spearheaded Croatia into the World Cup final for the first time in history in Russia, winning the tournament's Golden Ball himself.

   On club side, the playmaker won the third straight UEFA Champions League title with Real Madrid, their fourth in the past five years.

   For Modric, the year of 2018 is "a really very special year".

   "Winning the Champions League for the third straight time. To play the World Cup final for Croatia as a captain. Some amazing individual awards, and to finish with this (the Ballon d'Or).

   "It's difficult to choose one. All these moments are really important. I don't want to choose tonight. I just want to enjoy," he added.

   French teenage sensation Mbappe improved his ranking from seventh a year earlier to fourth for his role in France's triumphant World Cup journey and glittering performance in Paris Saint-Germain. His club teammate Neymar, currently the world's most expensive player, finished 12th.

   Mbappe, who will turn 20 later this month, unsurprisingly bagged the newly-established Kopa Trophy representing the best U-21 player.

   Women's Ballon d'Or, also inaugurated this year, went to Norwegian Ada Hegerberg who is playing in the French club Olympique Lyonnais.

   Founded in 1956 by France Football magazine, Ballon d'Or honors the player with the best performance over the year based on voting by football journalists. It was merged with FIFA World Player of the Year into FIFA Ballon d'Or in 2010, before the two awards were separated in 2016.

   Klopp later admitted his behavior had been "not cool" and claimed he had apologized to Everton boss Marco Silva for his actions.

   Silva said he had received no apology, but added that had his team won in similar circumstances, he may have celebrated in the same way.

   On seeing the referee's match report, the FA have given Klopp until Thursday to explain his actions, saying "Jurgen Klopp has been charged with misconduct relating to his behavior in the 96th minute of the game between Liverpool and Everton yesterday. He has until 6pm on 6 December 2018 to respond to the charge," on its official website.

   If found guilty of misbehavior, Klopp for face a range of punishments, ranging from as warning about his future behavior, a fine or even a touchline ban.

Almost half of Israelis think state's leadership corrupt: report

DF-Xinhua Report

Almost half of Israelis think that the country's leadership is corrupt, according to a 2018 index report submitted on Monday to President Reuven Rivlin by the Israel Democracy Institute.

   According to the report, 47 percent of the respondents think the country's leadership is corrupt, compared with 55 percent in 2016.

   The reason for the decline is explained by large disparities in the perception of corruption among supporters of right-wing parties in power and supporters of the center and the left.

   Only 23 percent of the right-wing Likud party voters, headed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, think the leadership is corrupt.

   Meanwhile, 54 percent of the respondents think that Israel is not a true democracy because a small group of rich people influence the government.

   However, the percentage of those who believe that the tension between rich and poor in Israel is strong has declined significantly in recent years, from 56 percent in 2012 to 39 percent now.

   Moreover, 41 percent believe that women in Israel are worse off than men, while 24 percent believe the opposite.

Students across France have disrupted lessons and blocked about 100 high schools on Monday to denounce education reform and support "Yellow Vests" movement against high living costs.

   High-school students that oppose changes to college and the university system seized on the mood of "Yellow Vests" action to step up blockades in many schools across French cities, including Toulouse and Paris suburbs where they clashed with anti-riot police.

   In Aubervilliers, northern Paris suburbs, hundreds of young people quit schools and walked out to the street chanting "Macron, Resign". Scores of them were arrested after they torched a vehicle and set bins on fire, according to state-run radio France info.

   Violent standoffs were also reported in Bordeaux, southwestern France and eastern French town of Dijon where students threw various projectile at police officers, who responded by firing tear gas.

   "Pretexts are clearly being used to commit urban violence," an official at education authority in Creteil, southeast of Paris, was quoted as saying by France info radio.

Lithuanian PM decides to sack 3 ministers

DF-Xinhua Report

Three ministers of the Lithuanian government will be replaced in order to ensure bigger reform breakthrough, prime minister Saulius Skvernelis said on Monday.

   "There are some areas in which as a head of government I would like to see bigger progress, more dynamics and more determination. I want to announce that I decided today to replace three ministers currently working at the government," Skvernelis told reporters.

   Proposals to dismiss ministers of education and science, environment and culture will be submitted to the country's President Dalia Grybauskaite on Wednesday, Skvernelis added.

   His decision was announced amid protracted walkout by Lithuanian teachers who have been protesting against recently introduced changes to the teachers' remuneration system.

   "There are many things to be fixed, and it is not only up to the Ministry of Education and Science", Skvernelis underlined.

   He did not have any potential replacements at the moment, the PM claimed.

   Jurgita Petrauskiene, minister of education, said the PM's decision was not a surprise as she had been facing "a lot of questions on this subject recently". Last week, Grybauskaite questioned the possibility of Petrauskiene to proceed at the office. According to the president, the government's education system reform had shortages and was being implemented in an "arrogant" way.

   Liana Ruokyte-Jonsson, minister of culture, and Kestutis Navickas, minister of environment, admitted in their comments to the local media that they lacked support for their work at the parliament.

   President Grybauskaite said she agreed with the decision to dismiss Petrauskiene, however she will wait for the prime minister's explanation why the other two ministers should be fired as well.

   "When it comes to the education and science minister, the president agrees. However, she will want to hear some arguments and reasons regarding the other ministers," presidential adviser Daiva Ulbinaite told the news agency Elta.

   As the fourth week of strikes began on Monday, around 1,400 teachers were taking part in the protests. Based on preliminary data of the Ministry of Education and Science, 60 schools out of nearly 2,000 schools were on strike Monday.

U.S. soldier wounded in Afghanistan bomb attack dies: Pentagon

DF-Xinhua Report

The U.S. Department of Defense on Monday confirmed the death of a U.S. soldier who was supporting U.S. military operation in Afghanistan.

   A statement released by Pentagon said that a sergeant of U.S. Army died on Sunday in Germany, as a result of injuries sustained from a bomb attack last week in Ghazni Province, Afghanistan.

   His death brought the death toll of U.S. service members in that attack to four.

   Pentagon said last Wednesday that three service members, two soldiers and one airman, died on Nov. 27 when an improvised explosive device struck their vehicle in Andar, Ghazni Province, Afghanistan.

   This attack also wounded three other U.S. service members and a U.S. military contractor, according to the official website of NATO Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan.

   Taliban had claimed responsibility for the attack, saying a U.S. tank was completely destroyed, according to media reports.

   The attack came after a U.S. service member was killed on Nov. 24 during an operation in Afghanistan, according to the official website of NATO Resolute Support Mission.

   In November, a major of U.S. Army National Guard was killed in an insider attack launched by a member of the Afghan security forces.

   The death toll of U.S. service members has surpassed 2,400 since the United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001.

NIB lends €250m to Nokia for 5G R&D

Business

DF Report

The Nordic Investment Bank (NIB) on Monday granted a loan of EUR 250 million to Nokia for research and development activities related to 5G technology.

The loan, which has an average maturity of approximately five years after disbursement, will finance Nokia’s extensive research and development programme focused on 5G activities in Europe in 2018-2020, said a Nokia press release.

The investment will especially concentrate on developing new 5G-related end-to-end product offerings for different business areas.

5G is the next generation of wireless systems beyond the current 4G standards, providing a substantial increase in network capacity, reducing latency delays and enabling network slicing. Network slicing gives network operators greater ability to differentiate their services to match clients’ needs.

Nokia’s 5G research and development programme also focuses on the implementation of the “Internet of Things”, machine-type communication between the things humans have invented. In practice, this means a network of different devices, such as home appliances, vehicles and other electronics, being able to exchange data wirelessly.

“The business opportunities of 5G are numerous, as it will be the first mobile generation designed from the beginning for machine-type communication. Nokia’s research and development is likely to benefit not just the telecom sector, but also several high-technology operators in our member countries,” said NIB President & CEO Henrik Normann.

“We are pleased to receive this financing commitment from the NIB, which shares our view of the revolutionary nature of 5G. This financing will further support 5G research and development in Europe and it bolsters the momentum we have already seen this year as the era of 5G begins,” said Nokia CFO Kristian Pullola.

Who will break Messi and Ronaldo duopoly?

DF-Xinhua Report

Not since Kaka in 2007 has a player other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo won football's top individual prize; the Ballon d'Or.

   Ronaldo and Messi, combined ten-time winners, lead a 30-man shortlist for the 2018 Ballon d'Or announced by France Football magazine, but it's not clear whether a new name will end their dominance or if one of the them claims the title for the sixth time.

   Ronaldo still makes a strong case. He won the UEFA Champions League title with Real Madrid for the third time in a row and the Portuguese star was also the top goal scorer for the sixth time.

   In 2018, Ronaldo moved to Juventus in a transfer worth 100 million Euros, the highest ever paid by an Italian club and the highest fee ever paid for a player over 30 years old. The 33-year-old slotted in his 10th goal in 14 league games last Saturday.

   Ronaldo impressed at the 2018 Russia World Cup. The Portuguese superstar scored four goals in the 2018 World Cup in total and became the oldest player ever to score a hat-trick in a World Cup match, helping Portugal secure a 3-3 draw against Spain in their opening match. Portugal's early elimination gave Ronaldo no further platform to show his great talent.

   Ronaldo faces a straightforward fight with his former Real Madrid teammate Luka Modric. The Real Madrid playmaker belied his 32 years by running more kilometers than any other midfielder while also providing the finesse that helped unlock rival defenses.

   2018 was truly a fruitful year for Modric. The midfielder led Real Madrid to an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League title and captained Croatia to the World Cup final for the first time in the country's history, which earned him the Golden Ball, the award given to the best player at the tournament.

   The Croatian star just added the World's Best Playmaker at the end of November to his World Cup Best Player and FIFA Best Player awards.

   A French winner of the 2018 Ballon d'Or also seems likely.

   Among the nominees, six were from the World Cup champion France, which reflects the great influence of the most prestigious association football tournament in the world. France lifted the World Cup trophy twenty years ago and Zinedine Zidane won the Ballon d'Or in the same year.

   Kylian Mbappe was undoubtedly the best new talent at the 2018 World Cup and the Paris Saint-Germain forward's performances for France confirmed his status as football's newest superstar.

   The 19-year-old bagged four goals in Russia, including a stunning 30-yard drive in the final. Together with Mbappe, his French teammate Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane were also considered promising winners.

   Griezmann scored four goals at the World Cup and won the Bronze Ball as the third best player. As one of the best defenders, Varane won the World Cup and played every minute of every game. The center-back made 11 appearances when Real Madrid won their 13th overall Champions League title.

   Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi seems to have no advantage this year, as his La Liga trophy with the Spanish soccer giant Barcelona was not comparable with the UEFA Champions League title. At the 2018 World Cup, Argentina was eliminated by France in the round of 16.

   Messi scored the opening goal in an eventual 2-1 victory in Argentina's final group match against Nigeria, which was his only goal in the World Cup. This year may be the best chance to see someone other than messrs Messi and Ronaldo walking away with the Ballon d'Or.

   Among the 30 nominees, Neymar is believed to have little chance of winning the award as the Brazilian star didn't have a good World Cup as he entered the tournament with hopes of leading Brazil to their sixth World Cup title.

          Tuesday's papers: Antibiotics overused, Independence Day marches, satellite launched      Cache   Translate Page      

Finnish medical patients use broad-spectrum antibiotics more commonly than the EU average, even though bacteria in Finland are not especially resistant to antibiotic treatments.

Daily Helsingin Sanomat writes that attacking a large number of different bacteria at once is all too common, and may lead to resistance build-up in bacteria, a situation that could pose problems in the long run.

A recent report by the Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) finds that generally, the use of antibiotics has been falling, which it says is a positive development - because the less they are used, the less chance bacteria have to develop resistance. HS writes that the THL has proposed using bacteria-specific antibiotics rather than broad-spectrum varieties.

Even though antibiotic use in general is down, not enough is being done, according to THL medical expert Emmi Sarvikivi.

"Doctors treating individual patients may not realise that choosing broad-spectrum antibiotics can be harmful in the long run," Sarvikivi says. "If we don't take heed now there may be trouble ahead."

Resistance to the antibiotic class of carbapenems - which are used to treat severe or high-risk bacterial infection - has reached an all-time high in some European countries. The bacteria Klebisella pneumonia is 30 percent resistant to antibiotics in Italy, and 65 percent resistant in Greece, according to the THL. In Finland the bacterium is only 0.3 percent resistant, but the tables may also turn here.

Jonne Juntura is a graduating physician from Helsinki, and says the life-threatening challenges of antibiotic resistance can still be avoided.

"If we do nothing, 10 million people will die due to bacterial resistance in 2050," Juntura estimates.

The physician founded a worldwide innovation competition last year to combat the issue, with participants including the World Health Organisation as well as the Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Police ready for marches

Police warn that representatives of the court-banned neo-Nazi group Nordic Resistance Movement (PVL) will likely take to the streets of Helsinki on Finland's Independence Day, 6 December.

Turku Appeals Court upheld a lower court's decision to ban the PVL in Finland in September, but the group has requested that the Supreme Court review the case, and there are expectations the organisation may hold the march before the court decides on whether to hear the case.

Police inspector Konsta Arvelin says in tabloid Ilta-Sanomat that police permit all demonstrations, including neo-Nazi marches, in the name of the right to free speech and assembly. The new guidelines for police response to the marches underscores that even neo-Nazis are protected by the law.

Police say they have received notice of the PVL's "Towards freedom" march (by an individual, not the group), a far-right "621" procession and a "Helsinki without Nazis" demo. All demonstrations will take place in the afternoon in central Helsinki, from 3 pm to about 7 pm.

IS writes that the National Police Board urges officers to focus on what is important: upholding order and security and safeguarding the right to free speech and assembly.

Finnish tech makes orbit

In extraterrestrial news, a satellite comemmorating Finland's indepdendence centenary and designed at the Aalto University was finally launched in California on Monday, 3 December at 8.32 pm Finnish time. Paper Turun Sanomat writes that the tiny satellite had to sit unused for more than a year.

Aerospace company SpaceX also wanted to do additional system checks, postponing the mid-November launch further.

The launch was historic in that the Falcon 9 booster rocket had been used twice before, and this time it also carried 64 different satellites for 35 different parties, including Aalto. The launch was one of the biggest ride-sharing satellite send-offs in history.

"I am really happy our satellite is on its way at last," project leader from Aalto University Esa Kallio says in TS. "It has been worth the wait, because soon we will be able to do new research and take stunning pictures of our 101-year-old country."

          Finnish National Prize honours creators of rock 'n' roll, film and fashion      Cache   Translate Page      

The Finnish National Prize, an annual cultural award from the Ministry of Education and Culture, went to Henry "Remu" Aaltonen, the drummer and vocalist of the 1970s band Hurriganes; the fashion designer behind Ivana Helsinki, Paola Suhonen; and Academy Award nominated director Selma Vilhunen.

This year each of the prizes, which were handed out by culture minister Sampo Terho on Monday, include an award of 25,000 euros.

Other recipients of this year's prize include the Oulu-based design firm alt Architects, the non-profit hobby group Finnish Game Jam, poet Jyrki Kiiskinen and Helsinki's Koko Jazz Club.

Aaltonen, Suhonen and Vilhunen

The 70-year-old bald-headed rock star Aaltonen helped to found the rock band Hurriganes in 1971 in Helsinki. The group went on to enjoy more than a decade of success and popularity in Finland, Sweden and Estonia, releasing their music on the Love Records label. The band's name was intentionally misspelled and their music has been described as nostalgic roots-based rock 'n' roll which has become icons of the rock scene of the 70s and 80s. During its heyday, the band recorded several covers of popular 50s hits, but the group also wrote their own songs, including one of their most well-known, Get On. The track was recorded - and improvised - at the producer's request for an extra song at the last minute when the band was finishing up their second album in 1974.

Fashion designer Suhonen founded the clothing, art and film company Ivana Helsinki in 1998. By 2007 the company was the first Nordic firm ever to take part in the prestigious Paris fashion week. Suhonen has continued to design products and concepts around the world. The designer also ran into some controversy earlier this year when the charity group Plan International Finland ran a high-profile ad campaign featuring a pregnant 12 year-old Zambian girl posing in a line of maternity clothing design by Suhonen.

Director and screenwriter Vilhunen has made fiction and documentary films during a career that started nearly two decades ago. Her short film Do I Have to Take Care of Everything? was nominated for an Academy Award for best live action short film in 2013. Vilhunen has received awards for her other work as well, like 2008's documentary Pony Girls and the TV film Pietà in 2007 and was co-writer of the 2005 feature film Homesick. Her 2016 film Little Wing was one of Finland's most prominent films in the past few years.

This year's prizes were handed out on Monday in Helsinki and the recipients will be acknowledged at the Independence Day gala at the Presidential Palace on Thursday, 6 December.

The Finnish National Prize has been handed out annually since 1993.


          Most members of far-right PVL and Soldiers of Odin have criminal records      Cache   Translate Page      

Some 70 percent of active members of the neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement (or PVL) and the loosely-affiliated Soldiers of Odin have criminal backgrounds, usually including violent crimes.

Finnish authorities are moving to outlaw the PVL, which police have described as a violent criminal group.

Yle has found that the vast majority of the group’s active figures have criminal records, and that the same is true of a loosely-affiliated group called Soldiers of Odin (SoO).

Ties between the two far-right groups have become closer of late, with the SoO apparently serving as an informal support group for the longer-established PVL. The SoO appears to be worried that it could be next to be banned.

Many convictions for violent and property crimes

The Yle study shows that active members of these two organisations have been convicted of significantly more crimes than the population at large – and that these tend to be violent and property crimes.

The PVL claims to only use violence in self-defence, but court records show otherwise.

Police documents urging a court to ban the PVL cite political violence as a key reason to outlaw the group. They list eight ideologically motivated crimes committed by PVL members in 2011-16. Yle has learned that members have been suspected of at least three other such crimes in the past two years.

Ministry: Ideological violence mainly by far right

According to the Interior Ministry, ideologically motivated violence in Finland is mainly carried out by the far right. It says that the far left has been responsible for few violent acts, adding that what it describes as anarchist and radical anti-fascist activities are mostly limited to the southern cities of Helsinki and Tampere.

Both far-left and far-right groups have been implicated in violence connected with marches on Independence Day (6 December).

The PVL will march as usual this Thursday despite the pending ban on its activities, says its leader Antti Niemi.

Niemi, who has not been convicted of any violent crimes, tells Yle that his group does not consider criminal records when recruiting members. However he adds that for instance sex offenders are not welcome.

Soldiers of Odin founder Mika Ranta says that criminal background is also generally not relevant for his group, although it could be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Ranta himself has an extensive rap sheet. He was convicted of eight violent crimes in 2002-15 along with other offences.

District courts have sentenced at least 43 PVL and SoO members since the turn of the millennium.

Seven out of 10 members probed had at least one criminal conviction, compared to an estimated 40 percent of the population at large, as estimated by a University of Turku study from a few years ago. Whereas most of that 40 percent had solely traffic-related violations, the group members have more often been convicted of violent and property crimes, the study found.

Six have drug convictions while four were military deserters.

United by anti-immigration ideology

While the PVL and Soldiers of Odin are united by anti-immigration ideologies, there are other differences.

The SoO calls itself a nationalist group, while the PVL openly describes itself as “national socialist” – in other words neo-Nazi.

Some of the victims of assault by group members are of immigrant background, but the ideological motives for the crimes were not clear from the court documents seen by Yle.

Since 2000, active PVL members have been convicted of at least 47 assaults. Members of the Soldiers of Odin have racked up at least 19 violent crimes since the self-styled street patrol was founded in 2015.

Members of the two organisations also have rap sheets including some 30 convictions for military crimes and offences against officials and the general order.

Soldiers of Odin membership dropping

For this report, Yle identified 61 active members of PVL and Soldiers of Odin in Finland and asked for court records on their criminal backgrounds. The individuals included 43 who have taken part in PVL activities and 18 were have been active in SoO. Reporters examined 250 court rulings from around Finland.

The Finnish Security Intelligence Service (Supo) estimates that PVL has some 100-120 members, so the probe covered close to half of its active membership. The Soldiers of Odin claimed to have as many as 600 members in 2016, but Yle has found that the number of active members has since dropped to a fraction of that.

          Finland : girl has been raped and sexually abused repeatedly by a group of migrants. Minister of the Interior is shocked      Cache   Translate Page      
Kai Mykk"anen (NCP), the Minister of the Interior, has expressed his shock at reports that an underage girl has been raped and sexually abused repeatedly by a group of men in Oulu, North Ostrobothnia. "Things like these shouldn't be happening in Finland," he lamented on YLE A-Studio on Monday. The Oulu Police Department on Saturday reported that several men of foreign background are suspected of repeatedly raping and sexually abusing a girl aged over 10 but under 15 in a number of flats in Oulu. The District Court of Oulu has detained a total of seven people on suspicion of aggravated child sexual abuse and aggravated rape in connection with the offences, which are believed to have taken place this year over a few-month period. More arrests are expected, according to the Oulu Police Department. YLE on Monday highlighted that foreign nationals are disproportionately represented in sex crime statistics: Finnish nationals were suspected of a total of 693 sex crimes and foreign nationals of 286 sex crimes in Finland in 2017. "This is a difficult issue that we must be able to talk about," commented Mykk"anen. He also drew attention to the need to take action to prevent sex crimes by, for example, educating the residents of reception centres across the country. The Finnish government, he also pointed out, has tabled a legislative proposal to expedite deportations in circumstances where the foreign national has committed a crime in Finland. The Ministry of Justice, meanwhile, has presented a legislative proposal to introduce the aggravated rape of a child into the criminal code and raise the punishments for aggravated child sexual abuse. http://www.helsinkitimes.fi/finland/finland-news/domestic/16005-these-kind-of-things-shouldn-t-be-happening-in-finland-says-mykkaenen.html

Austin Cooper vs Joey Nux, with Blake Starr, Cowboys (Wrestler4Hire)

Today's post was inspired by the W4H video of Austin and Joey wrestling in blue jeans beside a hogtied Blake. I love the video, but, truth be told, I loved it even before I watched it. The images of shirtless cowboys in jeans and boots were my Proustian madeleine to memories of the past, when my father was stationed at Nellis Air Force Base and I lived with my parents in Las Vegas. This was when I was between the ages of 13 and 15.

Two memories, to be precise, that have meshed together over the years. One is set in gym class at Von Tobel Jr. High School (near the future residence of Siegfried and Roy, a friendly Key West bartender once informed me). The PE teacher had set up mats for wrestling. He paired everybody according to weight. I was odd man out, a bit bigger than most of the kids in my grade. Then Terry Maxwell, a grade above me and the handsomest, most athletic guy at school, volunteered to wrestle me, much to the amusement of the teacher, who knew a squash situation when he saw it. Stepping on the mat with a suddenly shirtless Terry, I got an instant boner, which Terry ignored but a few of my classmates did not. It was a quick match. Terry pinned me with an inside cradle. I still remember the heat radiating off his body. Then rather than let me get up, he held me down a few more seconds with a schoolboy pin, at which point he had to feel the nudge of my erection against his tailbone. 

The other memory is set in what used to be called a dime store, not far from the Strip back then (1966-1968). My mother was in another part of the store. I was in the book and magazine section, browsing. Then I saw a tall, well-built young man nearby, shirtless, in cowboy hat, tight tight jeans, and boots. I figured he was probably a hustler - not a foreign concept to me at that time. (Military brats back then grew up around tattoo parlors, firearms, and prostitutes.) There's no story to tell on this one, just the image, ca. 1967, which is photographically preserved in my mind. Later, I would see the image echoing some of Tom of Finland's drawings of the 1950s and 1960s. As soon as I saw the photos for Wrestler4Hire's Cowboys, I realized how the dime-store cowboy's high cheekbones and sharp jawline were the imprint that drew me to Joey Nux at first sight earlier this year.

That's it. Not a story, really, definitely not a review. Just a couple of memories that became the architecture of my sexuality.

El Ford Fiesta R2 2019 de M-Sport se deja ver: motor 1.0 Ecoboost y 200 CV para este WRC Junior#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Desde hoy mismo Ford y M-Sport aceptan ya pedidos del nuevo Ford Fiesta R2 2019, desarrollado y diseñado para el mundo de los rallies en las instalaciones del equipo M-Sport en Cracovia (Polonia), de acuerdo a la nueva normativa R2 de la FIA y tomando como base el Ford Fiesta ST-Line.

Los coches de serie, que viajan desde la factoría de Ford en Colonia, Alemania, llegan a Polonia para ser transformados por M-Sport, aunque con un importante apoyo financiero por parte de Ford, en las máquinas que se utilizarán este año en el Mundial Junior de WRC.

Según el equipo, prácticamente todo en este R2 se ha rediseñado con respecto a su predecesor, desde transmisión, o prestaciones del motor hasta la suspensión. El pequeño Fiesta esconde un motor 1.0 litro Ecoboost tricilíndrico, con 200 CV de potencia a 6.500 rpm y un par motor máximo de 290 Nm a 4.000 vueltas, asociado a una caja de cambios Sadev secuencial de cinco velocidades y a un diferencial autoblocante con tres ajustes.

Además, el modelo goza de dirección eléctrica, nuevos amortiguadores Reigern ajustables en tres niveles en el eje delantero y en dos en el trasero, junto a muelles Eibach en dos opciones: duros o blandos. Opcionalmente se puede equipar también una barra estabilizadora con dos niveles de dureza, para aumentar así las opciones de puesta a punto de cara a los equipos.

A cargo de la frenada hay discos delanteros ventilados AP Racing (310 mm de diámetro para asfalto y 285 mm para grava) y traseros Alcon sólidos de 280 milímetros, junto a pinzas de competición también Alcon y a un freno de mano hidráulico. Las llantas OZ Racing son de 15 pulgadas para gravilla y de 16 pulgadas para asfalto.

Por último, la gestión electrónica del motor está controlada por un módulo Life racing F88 y entre otras soluciones de este R2, que mide 4,07 metros y pesa 1.030 kilogramos, destacan el display digital a modo de cuadro de instrumentos o un sistema Anti-Lag de tres niveles de ajuste. Lo veremos en la próxima temporada en los rallies de Suecia, Córcega, Cerdeña, Finlandia y Gran Bretaña.

Can The Green New Deal Save Civilization From Climate Change Catastrophe? For those invested in civilization's survival, the last few years haven't offered much cause for optimism. Dire climate change reports seem to land on our screens weekly, with normally sober scientists issuing increasingly panicked warnings about the catastrophe currently in progress. Meanwhile, the president of the United States plugs his fingers into his ears and shouts into his rage machine, pausing only occasionally to insult the victims of our burning new reality. [ more › ]
