RealWorld . . . can it be? -

I started this blog with a posting on traffic behavior. See ' Cars are flock animals '. Actually it is not necessarily cars whose behavior goes beyond all comprehension. It is mostly vans, trucks and other 'professional' vehicles. Like in the picture below, taken at the speed of 100 km/h on one of the main roads leading out from Helsinki. I discussed the matter with a colleague of mine, and he saw nothing unexpected in it: Vans are driven by young men, boys almost; They have no understanding...

Delft Daily Photo -

Stop! The center of Delft is traffic protected mostly with these stop thingies. You need to have a separate key to get the middle one go down. I know a person who thought he could easily drive after a car that had a key without any damage to his car, but he was wrong. His car got lifted up. Stop! Delftin keskustaa suojaa liialliselta autoliikenteeltä tämmöiset tolppaset. Keskustaan ajaakseen tarvitsee erillisen avaimen, jotta keskimmäinen tolppa laskeutuisi. Tunnen yhden tyypin joka...

The Finnish Government has just decided to increase taxation of diesel fuel. The Finance Minister Jyrki Katainen admitted that the decision was made to maximize tax intake, now that diesel cars are more popular than ever before. Finance Minister Jyrki Katainen It is commonly believed that diesel cars are less polluting than petrol cars. And less pollution is exactly what Finland officially is aiming for. - Yet Finland has a long history of punishing diesel usage. For decades there has been a...

Laura's Wonderland -

As I first arrived here, I couldn't find any differencies between Finland and England. Now that I have spent here almost two months I begin to see just how my two countries differ from each other. It's all the small things that you take for granted. The standard of living here in England is quite different from which I have accustomed to growing up in Finland. Carpeting and separate faucets for hot and cold water were practically unknown to me before I set my foot on this land. Heating and...

I noticed some FB updates of some BC friends going to Amsterdam that they were having some major delays. The flight delays due to the volcanic activity in Iceland, and it turns out it is covered pretty well on the European medias (of which BBC kind of should be most neutral). US medias over here? I don't feel like turning the TV on (it just feels so wrong during the day). Newspapers - the only ones on analog paper I occasionally get would be The Onion and even that maybe once a week. So, my...

Just as airlines work under an air traffic control system, it’s time for a space traffic management system, some experts say. In fact, work has begun on a blueprint for a first step toward that goal: a civilian space situational awareness system. Linkki

Life! C'est pas beautiful, ça? -

Tänään tunsi että kevät tosiaan on ihan kohta tulossa : ainakin + 15 C auringossa, kadut tulvillaan opiskelijoita vihreissä teepaidoissa kanniskellen olutlaatikoita Pyhän Patrickin kunniaksi. Kaksi asiaa pysäytti tänään päiväkävelyllä. (Kumpikaan ei liity Pyhään Patrickiin eikä opiskelijoihin) 1. Kävin valokuvausliikkeessä aikeenani ostaa kuvia (vai filmiksikö sitä sanotaan) Polaroid-kameraani. Kaupan setä kertoi että on lafka mennyt nurin eikä polaroideja taikka...

Minnin näpertelyt -

Flaky detection and awkward menus seriously hamper this dance fitness game. The Good High-energy workouts   Jazzy neon visuals. The Bad Inconsistent movement detection   Awkward menu interface   Unreliable online play. It's a no-brainer: dance-fitness craze Zumba is good exercise. Try not working up a sweat mimicking the up-tempo jigging of a Zumba instructor, successfully or otherwise, and so much the better if you enjoy the cheesy tunes. But what makes Zumba a vigorous aerobic workout also...

Despite of numerous appeals, demonstrations and strong critisism among the specialists and media (in Finland and abroad), today the Finnish Parliament will put the so called Lex Nokia to the vote in the plenary session. EDIT: The Government porposal was approved some time ago in a 96-56 vote, with 47 parlamentarians absent. "Lex Nokia", because the whole idea of the law, let alone big parts of the text itself, has been put together by the reps of the Nokia company. Also in the Finnish media...

Matkailua Kaakkois-Aasiassa -

The Journey gets an interestning start My folks gave me a ride to Tampere airport and there I met my travel mates Juuso and Pekka. We also met a new guy, Ilari (also from Tampere University of Technology.. just like the rest of us). Together we flew to Helsinki-Vantaa airport.Then the most amazing thing happened. We were waiting for the Helsinki-Bangkok flight as some airport staff member came to us and asked: "Would you like to earn some money? All you have to do is just not to go to this...

Life and Times in DC -

The Fulbright Orientation went rather well, a big thank you for the organizers. On the last day we heard an excellent lecture from Prof. Gary Weaver (American University) on American cultures, experiencing cultural shock and getting over it. By the time, however, most of us Fulbrighters representing all continents were already experienced cultural shockees. For most of us the first big shock was the driving culture as represented by our various cabbies: others felt driving in New York...

Hi guys. Just letting you all know I've just registered my own website www.katjadriver.com it's my online profile, you know, to help me get a job, but it's still a personal blog with some commentary on current affairs. I'll still keep this blog to post and read fic and to keep tabs on you guys, but it would be great if I had some traffic on new new site as well. Just sayin' :) Also the more personal posts will remain here behind the friends lock. So you won't lose me completely to the...

Reissuvihko -

Tiistai Maanantainen paluu Ilosaaresta verotti sen verran ettei jaksanut tehda reissun eteen kylla yhtaan mitaan. Saunaan, ruokaa ja unten maille. Aamusta sitten piti hieman hoppua mutta talle reissulle lahdettiinkin rinkka taynna kuivia vaatteita, eika suoraan pesukoneesta nostettuja. Lentokentalla oltiin kiltisti kahta tuntia aikaisemmin, mika on aivan turhaa hommaa jops on mahdollista kayttaa lahtoselvitykseen automaattia. Koneessa nautittiin kaksin kasin ilmaista viinta hallitaksemme pelkoa...

Ukraine: Many hitchhikers say it's dangerous to hitchhike in Ukraine. Though, if your Russian is good enough, and you feel like it: just go for it! When hitchhiking in Ukraine do not be surprised if you are occasionally asked for money from drivers. It is not often, however, but it occurs. The state of the roads are pretty dire in general, and the biggest problem is the distances involved are usually pretty big (for example Lviv to Kyiv is around 550km. In winter Ukraine can get very cold, for...

I almost forgot my promise of the morning pages. Well, no wonder really, since it's already afternoon. That, however, has absolutely nothing to do with my chosen title for today. When I picked up dancing, it really never occurred to me that it would end up as much more than a fun and healthy pastime, with the additional bonus of good leg muscle definition. Ah, to be young(er) and naïve again. Alas, the muscle definition didn't come alone and now I'm riddled with all sorts of things nobody...

In my mind, there can be no cooler country than one issuing postal stamps which are vinyl records that can actually be played! The stamps were issued already in 1973, but 40 years later I am  myself going to Bhutan for one year contract as a UN volunteer. Yay! (Photo: http://creativeroots.org/2009/08/1973-record-stamps-of-bhutan/) Listen to the Bhutan record stamp short sound clips, a) brief description of Bhutan: http://mp3archives.wfmu.org/archive/FL/bhut1.mp3 and b) Bhutanese music...

2009, Traffic (The Orchard)En muista bongasinko tän levyn ensin alan lehdestä vai jostain netistä. Muistin Flegmaatikkojen biisissä olleen lainin : "lisää beissii ja mästä eissii...". En edes muista tarkalleen sanoja, mutta sielläkin päin näköjään diggailtu tätä jäbää, joka sanoo tehneensä musiikkia niin kauan, että kun hän kertoisi tämän, kuulija todennäköisesti nauraisi.Riimit kertovat faneista

China or Nothing -

Again it's one of those times in the year when the whole population of China goes on holiday at the same time. Only those working in the tourist industry stay at work to count their gold, but the other 1,3 billion people are all fighting for that same seat on the train. Here in Beijing, though, things quiet down in the areas that are usually busy with commuter traffic and people going about their

Daily Loaf -

Skew me, skew you. I'm on a mailing list that doesn't generate much traffic most of the time, but when it does, debates tend to be heated. I'm usually the advocatus diaboli on the list, since most readers and posters write from a rather anti-establishment point of view. Today Mike kindly informed us of a boycott that's being agitated against ExxonMobil, Microsoft, Kraft, et alia, by the Finnish chapter of the Friends of the Earth network. As a firm believer in the power of markets as an...

I thought about that I do not write on my blog before we get a new traffic sign in Haaga, but then I decided against it. I realized that it will take as long as I predicted. And if I do not write, no one would read this. So let’s write. Jukka got a challenge from a friend of his, it is a book challenge in which you have to name a list of books. After you have explained why these books are important to you, you can challenge five persons to this challenge. Even though it would be extremely...

Light Scrape -

View The photograph was taken on December 5th. Today I commuted by bicycle through the central park in Helsinki, which is nice because there are few people and no traffic lights. We had -6 °C in the morning and -3 °C in the afternoon. (Posting title is from the poem The Waste Land by T. S. Eliot.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

Paljon pelissä -

In the last two days I have chosen a new route for my evening bicycling. This route is otherwise quite pleasant, but it goes a couple of kilometers in a road where cars drive with a great speed. The road is named Lapinkyläntie, and it goes from Kauklahti to Veikkola. Fortunately, in the time when I cycle there, the traffic is not very heavy. Normally, I have my earphones and the radio with me. It was funny when today I did not have the radio with me because of the batteries were low, but...

(Subject: Last message from Berlin) So then I came back from the States and moved house. Strictly speaking, I didn't move, I was first homeless like a stray dog and slightly desperate, as the home searching proved to be somehow much more difficult than in the autumn. Then I moved into an ex-lawyers' office flat with three brisk German guys who had rented the flat and were now turning it into a livable space (the best they could, hmm) and two other girlies that the guys had found, in addition to...

Other side of the globe -

Ok we ordered the suits and got them as well. Cashmere with stripes. Business look at the best! We rented 125cc scooters for 4euros/day each with Andy and Pete and went around Ao Nang. We drove to Buddha footsteps at the nearby temple Wat Tham Seua(or tigercave) and climbed all the 1237 steep steps up to the mountain. It was hard work in the scorching sun and definitely good for your bum and thighs. We were respecting the culture by wearing long trousers and shirts even though there was many...

Poker Wits -

Poker is a game of decisions. And the most important decisions are made before you even play a hand online. In the long-run, the information on this article will gain you a lot of money. Even if you don't plan to play poker for a living or look at poker as a career, it's worth your time to make the early choices like you would be a pro at some point. No-one says no to a free $100 right? Well I say "it depends" and show you when to say no to a $50 now to secure $5000 and more later. This one is...

(Subject: What I wanted to say...) My dear, here I am, finally. Really: I am here. The river Spree froze solid one day , but now it is flowing again, and when I cycle with boyf down the melting streets I make him "smell the spring", and he laughs at me: you can't be talking about spring when it's freezing and there are heaps of snow in our back yard, seriously, listen to yourself! Here, but how? Through the freezing and melting of Spree, through the hundredrs of hours spent sitting in the...
