The European Commission’s English only State of the Union 2017 web page does not offer any updates this morning, but it only means that we have to look elsewhere for important developments. Digital tax and Tallinn summit Yesterday the Commission outlined a path towards fair taxation in the digital economy: press release IP/17/3305 , questions and answers MEMO/17/3341 and vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis SPEECH/17/3402 . The exploratory communication is already available on the EU’s legal...

When it comes to true crime books, podcasts and series, I am a HUGE fan. So much so that I often opt for tales of true crimes rather than listening to music as a bike around, spend my money on true crime books instead of novels and eagerly wait for new true crime series to make their premiere. A while ago I was asked to recommend my favorite true crime books on Twitter. While I did share some recommendations there, I got the idea of putting together a more comprehensive list of books, podcasts...

After our customary pit stop on the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page ,  the Commission State of the Union 2017 brochure (108 pages) continues on page 35 with a section Progress on the European Commission’s 10 priorities. Starting from the 2014 political guidelines for the Commission - with the ten priorities presented in detail in the booklet A New Start for Europe - the SOTEU 2017 brochure dedicates two pages or more to each priority in a readable mix for an educated...

In addition to the letter of intent and roadmap(s) , the European Commission’s SOTEU web page offers us the State of the Union 2017 brochure , a booklet of 108 pages available only in English at this moment. Since the handy brochure is at least partly a compilation of documents published separately, some of the content is already available in other EU languages.

Are you a Strava user? Did you know that linking your account to Relive.cc will produce recaps like above? I just found out how to embed these to Blogger (as there is no ready-made method available): embed a Youtube video but change the video link to an MP4 link that you'll find on the Relive page source. Then replace the Youtube content to the one you copied from Relive. My second ride on the green island began with the Woodstown climb up to the summit again. It's such a nice uphill to ride...

I can't even remember how many times I have done this, written a comeback post after my blog has been inactive for a while. Before, I used to feel so guilty not updating this blog and writing this kind of posts felt like an equivalent to the epitomic "walk to shame" (not that I really have any experience of that). But feeling guilty about something like this, about a hobby that should be fun for me instead of stressful, seems kind of silly to me now. Yes, I am sad that I have not been able to...

While War of the Ring is a fantastically good game, its expansions can also be fantastically hard to get hold of. Their rarity means that when I was lucky enough to see a copy of Warriors of Middle-earth at our friendly local game store, I pretty much bought it immediately. Warriors adds six factions to the game, effectively taking event cards from the base game, like ents, and expanding them into full factions with figures on the board, which the players can activate and mobilize for the war...

Leonard Lapin: Estonian Forest, 1994/2017. Virolaisen taiteilijan Leonard Lapinin vuoden 1994 teossarjaan kuuluva installaatio  "Virolainen metsä" on istutettu uudelleen Tarton taidemuseoon (Vanemuise 26). I should talk about the Nature poetry, but I find out thinking more about nature of   the  Poetry. In English speaking countries, the word "poetry" would get the crowd scattered faster than a fire hose. They hate poetry, because it's like intellectual shit, something which we don't need...

It's almost September, for most people the vacation is over and it’s back to real life and regular daily rhythm. For me it marks the end of my summer job, ten days quick study related vacation in Sweden where I intend to visit as many rune stones as I possibly can (as a private geeky enhancement for my curriculum) while possibly shopping for new shoes and finding the perfect pair that would go equally well with slacks and a skirt (so far an elusive expedition) ... a girl can dream. This means...

Last time on Crusader Kings II, I got myself well into the 13th century and secured the Empire of Suomi. Unfortunately, my prospects for further expansion weren't great, because I think that's what you call a blob right there: Luckily for us, though, the Justanids to our south collapsed; less luckily, the Byzantines and Hungarians were quick to the spoils. The nobility provided some entertainment. This, however, is where we ended up. The empires of Suomi, Byzantium and the Mongols carved up...

Vera's log -

If somebody asked me 25 years ago what I think about Damore's manifesto's claims that women are on average somewhat less (or more) suited to software jobs than men, I would have said "bullshit". 15 years ago I might have said "I don't know". Now, surprisingly, it's more of "I don't care". A cynic in me would also add "and if anyone knows, they are sure as hell not telling us". Because if anyone really managed to measure the "natural biological" distribution of men and women in Computer Science...

Ayaan Hirsi Ali joins Peter Robinson to discuss her new book, The Challenge of Dawa: Political Islam as Ideology and Movement and How to Contain It, and her views on the challenges facing Western civilization in regards to political Islam. She argues that Islam needs to be separated into two different parts, one part of religion and the other part, political philosophy. She concedes that many aspects of the religious part of Islam are peaceful but argues that the political side is much more...

Altough in general I was always more of a CMYK person. I've been organising, kind of, as in trying to, which rather means: looking at and going trough things at home that have been packed in boxes; drawings and sketches and paintings from my art school years. And then I thought about those years. And then I watched this and thought about art school some more. I like the red one best.

Aina silloin tällöin kysytään, tykkäsinkö jo pienenä piirtää tai tiesinkö jo lapsena, että minusta tulee taiteilija. Yleensä olen vastannut, että piirsin varmaan siinä missä muutkin, mutta ei minusta pitänyt tulla taiteilijaa, vaan kirjailija. Katselinpa tässä kerran vanhempieni luona vanhaa valokuva-albumia, ja sieltähän tuo totuus tietenkin löytyi: 25.4.1974 tekemäni muotokuva Reidar Särestöniemestä. Äitini on kuvan yhteyteen kirjoittanut selityksen: 3v 10kk ikäinen...

Never Lose the Option to Win on Time My blitz rating is much higher than my standard rating. I tend to be able to punch above my weight in the shorter format. Last year, I won four out of the six games I played against titled players. Out of the 100 or so blitz games I have played in these big tournaments (5 minute 0 increment), I have lost only one on time. I should also mention that I don't have the quickest hand action either; I'm definitely slower as a piece mover than Tero or Petr, for...
