Matkasin vuosi sitten jouluna Itävaltaan Wieniin joulutoreille fiilistelemään joulun tuloa ja nauttimaan tunnelmasta kauniissa Keski-Eurooppalaisessa kaupungissa. Postaukset matkasta löytyy täältä ja täältä . Päätin näin joulun kynnyksellä koota tähän parhaita paloja Wienin joulutoreista.  ♥ I traveled a year ago during the Christmas season to Austria Vienna Christmas markets.  To enjoy the Christmas atmosphere in one of Central Europe's most beautiful cities.  Posts about...

This year has slowly gotten to its routines. Or actually all these routines I'm stuck with are the same ones I wrestled with in 2006 already... in other words: it's wake-up in the morning, to the office via shower and clothing-puzzles, in case the office hours fall short I get home around nineish after doing some sweating in the gym or in some workout class. Ya, that's my life. On weekends it's train time for either me or Olli, depending on the location of our weekend-plans. Last weekend it was...

If the treaty based aim of the European Union is a highly competitive social market economy, how do the political parties at European level deal with this objective? I skim a few documents with political principles from the main Europarties. The 2012 manifesto of the European People’s Party (EPP) begins by presenting the values of the party, then concludes: The only political system in which these values can thrive is in a pluralist democracy, in which citizens accept responsibility. The best...

Wacken Open Air -festivaalin ensimmäiset päivät tarjosivat monta maukasta musiikkielämystä. Keskiviikko 2.8.2017 Festivaalin ”lämmittelypäivänä” päälava-alue on vielä kiinni, mutta paikalle valuvalle yleisölle on tarjolla laadukasta viihdettä alueen pienemmillä lavoilla. Vanhanaikaisiin soittimiin nojaava ja keskiajalta vaikutteita ottava folkrock/folkmetal on varsin suosittua Saksassa ja tällä tyylisuunnalla on vuodesta toiseen vahva edustus myös Wackenin Wackinger...

It’s only two weeks left for our trip in Europe. We are going on Sunday 6th of July.  Our ferry leaves from Helsinki 8:30 am and we arrive to Tallinn at 11 am. Our plan is to drive through the Baltic countries quite fast. I think we are going to have a little longer pit stop in Riga, Latvia since the Via Baltica (Road E67) goes quite near it. The first night we are probably going to spend in south Lithuania. … Lue loppuun →

Talvi kaupunkilomalle Tanskan pääkaupunkiin, Kööpenhaminaan! Nyt tammikuussa on edessä vuoden 2017 ensimmäinen ulkomaanmatka. Viime reissusta onkin aikaa. Nimittäin viime kesän Ranskan kierros. Joulukuussa oli tarkoitus mennä kiertelemään Keski-Euroopan joulutoreja. Mutta se matka jäi sairastamisen takia. Joten nyt onkin intoa lähteä matkalle pitkästä aikaa! En olekaan ennen käynyt Kööpenhamissa, korkea aika jo. Ja mitä olen tähän mennessä Köpiksestä lueskellut ja...

In the summer of 2014 Jean-Claude Juncker presented his agenda for jobs, growth, fairness and democratic change, as political guidelines for the then next European Commission. The ten priorities available in the brochure A New Start for Europe are: A New Boost for Jobs, Growth and Investment A Connected Digital Single Market A Resilient Energy Union with a Forward-Looking Climate Change Policy A Deeper and Fairer Internal Market with a Strengthened Industrial Base A Deeper and Fairer Economic...

For the Soviet Union the Second World War ended 70 years ago. For millions in Eastern Europe, it was the beginning of another occupation by an utterly fascist system, an occupation that would last around 45 years. For German women it was the beginning of a massive rape wave, perhaps the biggest in human history, with Russian troops defiling any woman they could find. Women as old as 80 years and girls as young as 8 years were raped. Millions were raped, and hundreds of thousands died as a...

Finished reading Mein Kampf (an English translation of it to be exact, not the one filled with notes). There's been a lot of debate among historians as to whether Hitler's policies once he became chancellor followed a careful plan or whether those policies (such as the Holocaust) emerged more spontaneously, as a reaction to changing circumstances. Some Nazi sympathizers even claim Hitler had no choice but to do what he did because of the hostility of his foreign adversaries. To me it's quite...

We started looking at the Danish economy at the beginning of the European Semester 2017 in the blog entry European Semester 2017 start: Denmark . I hope that the European Commission manages to inspire, and that politicians, civil servants, interest groups and activists with the right priorities use benchmarking exercises, such as the European Semester, in order to profit from an outside view and clear suggestions for reform steps and corrections. Assessment of progress In February 2017 the...

In the Bratislava Roadmap the heads of state or government declared their determination to make a success of the EU at 27. The leaders promised to use the 25 March 2017 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties to round off the process and to set out orientations for their common future together. Having seen the auspices, the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker made a sober assessment. Instead of reform proposals, the Commission published a discussion...

En näköjään kirjoita nykyisin paljon muusta kuin televisiosta – mutta näillä mennään nyt tällä hetkellä. Olen huomannut olevani vakituinen The Voice of Finland in katselija. Katsoin ensimmäisen jakson uutena vuotena, koska halusin tietää, mitä kaiken hypen takana on. Avausjakso oli mielestäni roskaa: kaikki laulajat olivat tasapaksua karaoke-massaa, Elastisen  päännytkytys oli ärsyttävää ja Lauri Tähkä  oli Lauri Tähkä. Seuraavat jaksot katsoin, koska The Voice of...

Obiter dictum -

Embedded in every man is a latent power, such that has the dynamic ability to bring about and cause any kind of desired change in any situation. It is a recognizable fact that every form of human association, organization or unit, with a definite purpose (whether good or evil, noble or immoral) has a ‘soul’. And such, is given life by the innate conviction and beliefs of the individual members of such group. Revolutionary changes in every society have always been as a result of such...

As part of NASPIR , I've signed a letter defending free speech in the case of Ward Churchill, a professor at the University of Colorado. Churchill wrote what he called "a stream-of-consciousness interpretive reaction to the September 11 counterattack" in the immediate aftermath of said event. The rediscovery of this sloppy polemic has led to raging denunciation, with death threats, the governor of Colorado calling for Churchill's resignation and so on. The issue of most interest to corporate...

Holocaust memorial day. The Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp was liberated 60 years ago today. In Finland, the day is held to remember not only the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, but all victims of ethnic persecution, past and present. The simple popular picture of the reasons for the Holocaust has two essential elements: an insane leadership that whipped up antisemitism to gain power, and fanatically loyal followers who were indoctrinated into totalitarian mentality, ready to obey any and all...
