The blog post European Council: United we’re stuck? noted the effort of the EUCO president Donald Tusk to cut the Gordian knots among the heads of state or government (and more generally the governments of the member states), by a structured approach to difficult issues. At the same time, the entry doubted if a schedule for thematic meetings would be more successful now than at the time of Herman Van Rompuy. What if sub-optimal procedures and outcomes for EU citizens and enterprises are...

After the 18 October 2017 tripartite social summit the president  Donald Tusk offered an optimistic view on the role of the European Council (EUCO) for the future of Europe in general and the deepening of the economic and monetary union (EMU) in particular: From all quarters, there is now a new willingness to energise and enrich our work, draw on new ideas, maintain our unity and increase the dynamism of the EU. I will be calling on leaders to work together according to a strict timetable on...

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...

Tomorrow we will start our 6000km adventure around Europe. Our majestic french wagon has been inspected and a bunch of stuff has been bought. Also crew is ready to rock! Driver’s best friend on a road trip is a good navigator. Navigators in phones are okay, but I have enough bad experiences with those so I recommend to trust a proper one. This far I have borrowed navi from here and there but now I bought an own TomTom 400 … Lue loppuun →

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 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 →

Tämä artikkeli on julkaistu alun perin Suomen Terveysravinto Oy:n Asiakasuutiset-lehdessä I/2013. Auringonvalo on merkittävä D-vitamiinin lähde, mutta varsinkaan Pohjolassa se ei yksin riitä. Riittävä D-vitamiinin saanti on tarpeellista useiden sairauksien ehkäisemiseksi. Monet meistä kärsivät kuitenkin sen puutteesta. Tarvitsemme D-vitamiinia ravintolisänä vähintään syyskuusta toukokuuhun. D-vitamiini on viime vuosien kuuma aihe ravitsemustieteessä, ja sen hyödyistä...

2006 may well be the year of dawn of a new era for business aviation, which has been anticipated ever since William Lear Jr. rolled out his first LearJet-23 in October 1963. Although successful (but accident-prone in the beginning: 10 of the first 100 produced were destroyed), Lear Jet was clearly meant for very rich people, who would fly from their New York, London, Moscow or Jeddah luxury homes to equally luxurious villas in Florida or French Riviera, before boarding a luxury yacht for a day...

Nettisivulta Little Green Footballs löytyy opettavainen video eurooppalaisista muslimeista. Kyse on Lontoossa 3.2.2006 Tanskan suurlähetystön edustalla pidetystä mielenosoituksesta. Video kertoo kaiken olennaisen muslimeista, Euroopasta ja monikulttuurisuuden hyödyistä. Alla otteita videolla esiintyvien, Britannian kulttuuria rikastuttavien maahanmuuttajien iskulauseista ja kylteistä: - Jihad in the name of Allah! - Death to you, by God! - May Allah bomb you! May Usama bin Laden bomb...

Picture Airbus : Singapore Airlines Airbus 380 All major airports in Europe are battling to increase their runway throughput to meet the ever-increasing passenger demand. The situation can be improved by use of larger aircraft types such as Boeing 747 and especially a new 550-seat Airbus A380. Currently air traffic controllers are using distance separation (depends on aircraft weight category, must be minimum 2.5-3 NM over the runway threshold) between consecutive landings that must be...

Strategisesti etenevä Junckerin komissio on kautensa puolivälissä, joten EU-politiikan aloilla on väliarviointien paikka. Sisämarkkinoiden osalta sellaisesta ei ole vielä näkynyt merkkejä, joten pääomamarkkinaunionia koskevien ensimmäisten kirjoitusten lisäksi olen kerännyt joitakin rakennuspalikoita kuviteltua puolivälin tarkastelua varten: Sisyphean internal market , Monitoring the European Commission’s progress , Internal market mid-term , Services in the internal market...

Asiakkaille on myyty puhelimitse ilmeisen perusteetonta lupausta suoramarkkinointikiellosta. ------------------------------- Huomion herättää, että SVVK ja...

Kuva . Matkasuunnitelmien teko tälle kesälle ei ole ollut helppoa. Nyt useat majoitukset ovat jo kallistuneet pilviin, kuten myös junien hintoja nostettu ja kaikkea muutakin. Kun löytyy halpa kuljetus, huomaa että majoitus on kallis tai sitten sama toistepäin. Siksi se ei ole enää ollenkaan helppoa, kaiken lisäksi majoitukset jotka olivat vuosi sitten jo kalliita ovat tuplanneet hintansa. Näin ollen aion etsiä minulle sopivia uusia (miksei myös edullisia vanhoja) kohteita tälle...

Ihanaa juhannusta kaikille!  Itselläni menee tänä vuonna juhannus töissä eli lennellen pitkin Eurooppaa. Tämä ei tosin tullut yllätyksenä. Kesälomaakaan ei ole tiedossa tänä vuonna. Mutta onneksi on sentään vapaapäivät! :-) Toivon mukaan, jonain niistä päivistä aion suunnata landelle mökkeilemään. Nauttimaan grilliherkuista. Sekä uimaan että saunomaan myös tottakai! A wonderful midsummer for everyone! This year, I'm working at midsummer, flying around Europe. This...

Mihin Kreikassa? matkavinkkejä Kreikkaan ja kohdeideoita. Kreikassa on lukuisia käymisen arvoisia kohteita. Tässä ideoita ja muutama video jutun alla. Mykonos ja Milos (kuvassa Mykonos). Mykonos on vielä keväällä rauhallinen, rento ja aurinkoinen saari jossa näet kauniita bougainville kukkakujia, kissoja ja kristallinkirkkaan meren. Taianomaiset kukkakujat ja valkoiset talot vuoren rinteillä ihastuttaa. Mykonos ei ollut viime keväänä täynnä turisteja ja tunnelma oli kivan...
