It was snowing for the most of the night. It started already yesterday, I sighed heavily when I went to bed. We have loads of this white stuff… the forecast for today promises more, but the snow fall won’t be quite as strong as last night. The depth of the snow is already 40cm (16”), which is a lot for this time of the year. The sun rises at 1056 and sets again 1322 (0122pm), the length of the day is only two hours… It is beginning to feel like deep winter. On the plus side, the snow is...

Last time , I was building freeways and wondering about the rise and fall of commercial zones in Cities: Skylines. I've taken to using a couple of mods: All Spaces Unlockable does just that, with costs scaling up as you unlock more map squares, and Infinite Oil & Ore Redux , which makes the ore and oil industries a reasonable proposition. The latter was since rendered obsolete by a mod bundled with the game itself, but All Spaces Unlockable is definitely worth it. I also wanted my city to look...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE Hi there! Thank you so much for your comments, it made me very happy to read them. (And yes, I have made the cats.) xx I am grateful that of the wealth of the internet and its interesting contents, you come here to read my posts and leave comments.  Today I’ll show you a few Christmas ornaments that I really do not like. I think they are Christmas ornaments, but maybe they are not. On this log wall, there is a clock that measures time loudly and...

Now that I've returned to Magic , I want to take a moment to talk about the cards. Especially in an era of digital entertainment, part of the appeal of any card game is having the actual physical cards to handle, shuffle and look at. With Magic, this is what my high school history teacher would have called a double-barreled sword. On the one hand, I have to be honest: in terms of overall looks and design, getting back to Magic has strongly reminded me of how well-designed the cards of the Lord...

It is possible to find overviews in Reader’s Digest style of the most notable Future of Europe initiatives . The annotated version of president Jean-Claude Juncker’s State of the Union 2017 address, with the sub-heading Proposals for the future of Europe that can be implemented on the basis of the Lisbon Treaty , demonstrates how the flexibilities of the EU treaties can be used to improve the effectiveness of European Union action, without embarking on a formal process of treaty reform...

Animetyttöjä ja Pseudopolitiikkaa -

"I worked on Mannerheim for more than 10 years," says Harlin. "We even started it twice – once in Lithuania, once in Hungary. We had over 1,000 costumes made, all props and sets designed and built, all casting done, award-winning makeup designers for the lifelong ageing." Despite all this, the film never came to fruition, something that clearly still saddens him. "My parents were both in the war," he says wistfully. "Every Finnish home had Mannerheim's picture on the wall." . . ...

Kansalliset, ehkä oikeammin valtiokeskeiset mielipidesiilot muovaavat EU-asenteita eri jäsenmaissa. Poliitikkojen ja tiedotusvälineden sanomissa on lähes symbioottisia piirteitä, mutta jäsenmaittain mielipideilmastot vaihtelevat. Kansallisten poliitikkojen tekemisissä ja median seurannassa jäsenmaiden hallitusten tekemiset Eurooppa-neuvostossa ja neuvostossa ovat saaneet tärkeimmän roolin, sikäli kuin mielenkiintoa on riittänyt EU:n seuraamiseen ylipäätään. Tiedotusvälineiltä...

The web page for the Commission Work Programme 2018 (CWP 2018) offers access to the communication, the five official annexes and additional documents, but at this stage mainly in the three internal working languages of the Commission (English, French and German). At this point in time, the language choice is no wider if we access the official documents through the legal portal Eur-Lex. However, let us fetch the exact reference there: Commission Work Programme 2018: An agenda for a more united...

Cristo si è fermato a Eboli: Why do I remember Carlo Levi and the saying “Christ stopped short of here, at Eboli” , when facing the conflict between a European level currency and national economic policies, as well as when following the many efforts to correct the design and to advance on the road to a robust, resilient and democratically legitimate euro area? In the blog post A better future for the EMU? we saw how the Five Presidents’ Report outlined the unfinished work and the road...

One important aspect of any Internet of Things setup is being able to collect and visualize data for analysis. Seeing trends in sensor readings over time can be useful for identifying problems, and for coming up with new ways to use the data. We wanted an easy solution for this for the c-base IoT setup. Since the c-base backstory is that of a crashed space station, using space technology for this made sense. NASA Open MCT is a framework for building web-based mission control tools and...

Our customary check of the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page , reveals no visible updates since yesterday and the language selection remains one out of twenty-four: English only. We return to the State of the Union 2017 brochure , where the next section is Citizens’ Dialogues (from page 97). According to the brochure (page 98), there had been 312 Citizens’ Dialogues in all in the member states since the start of the Juncker Commission; of these 129 on the future of...

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...

I mentioned ages ago that before we got into this whole living card game thing, the previous time I played any kind of card game that wasn't either bridge or poker was with a Magic: the Gathering Ice Age starter set. The thing about Magic is that as near as I can tell, Richard Garfield pretty much invented the modern collectible card game. All the other card games we play, whether Lord of the Rings , Game of Thrones or Arkham Horror , use mechanics that are functionally almost identical to...

Richard Dawkins on maailman tunnetuimpia ateisteja, evoluutioteorian puolestapuhujia ja uskontokriitikoita. Sen lisäksi hän on Twitter-käyttäjä, mikä on vuorostaan nostanut miehen mainetta setämiehenä plus Elevatorgate . Sekä islamia kritisoidessaan hän sai mainetta kauhistuttavana islamofoobikkona. Esim. tällaiset twiittaukset saivat ihmisiä pudistelemaan päätään Dawkinsin suuntaan. "Islam is the greatest force for evil in the world today" Minuakin on kutsuttu islamofobisia...

Later that day the hobbits held a meeting of their own in Bilbo's room. After the massive conference in the previous chapter, Bilbo and Frodo recuperate, while Merry and Pippin insist they be allowed to go with Frodo. First, though, Elrond sends out scouts to gather information, and the hobbits spend two months hanging out in Rivendell. Eventually the scouts return, with little news except that the Nazgûl are gone, though probably not destroyed. So it's time to leave for Mordor. But who's...
