Blogikirjoituksessa Euroopan tulevaisuus: talous- ja rahaliiton syventäminen mainittiin puheenjohtaja Junckerin ja presidentti Macronin antamat sykäykset EU:n tulevaisuuskeskusteluun, valkoinen kirja Euroopan tulevaisuudesta, pohdinta-asiakirja talous- ja rahaliiton syventämiseksi ja Euroopan komission EMU-painopiste ennen viiden puheenjohtajan kertomuksen lyhyttä esittelyä. - Aloitteiden joukossa olisi pitänyt mainita Euroopan parlamentin päätöslauselmat, jotka viimeksi mainitsin...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE It is around this time of the year when we usually get the first snow. I have begun to anticipate it. As much as I hate to see the light go and the shadows creeping in deeper and deeper every day, I love the new snow and the brisk air it brings along. The temperatures are going to dip below zero soon and will stay there for the good many months, possibly until April, or maybe even close to June, like this year. This was the year, when the summer...

Sitting will kill you. It's almost as bad as smoking. Don't believe me? Read Arsebestos, by Neal Stephenson in his compilation Some Remarks , or more fully, Deskbound by Dr Kelly Starrett. So as a matter of urgency, I created a standing desk adaptation for my work space at the Waterfront Studios. The heart of the desk is a lovely piece of walnut, left over from both my sister's bookstand , and Heli's meditation stool . The design is just two boxes, one tall for the monitor, and one wide for the...

OKTK gives a rich visual inspiration this month. I especially like the text: "There is a place that is quite mad. To survive it you need to be mad as a hatter." The operational word for me was "hatter" and the contents were the beautiful red - if very poisonous - mushrooms you see everywhere in the woods now in fall. They would be great s hats, now wouldn't they. So I re-imagined them for some ladies. I took away their regular boring hats and clad them in polka dotted splendor. Ja tämä...

What's the opposite of preparations? Delays? 1. The damn tomatoes. I am not even going to tell you, although I clearly am; but Eddi and I dug out this whole new are of the yard last spring and put up growing boxes and scraped part of the rock bare I had all these grand plans of growing  this and that and what not. I grew another round of tomato-slice plants in my little table-sized greenhouse on the porch and when the half-metre high plants were still in there in August, trying to cling onto...

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...

Värriön luontopäiväkirja - Varrio nature diary -

Lapin kairassa vaeltaminen ja yöpyminen perustui aikoinaan yli 100 vuoden ikäisiin kelomäntyihin ja niiden kahdesta rungonpätkästä nopeasti viritettyyn rakovalkeaan. Se paloi tuntikausia tasaisesti ja saatoit nukkua sen vieressä, talvellakin. Kuusta ei rakovalkeassa juuri käytetty, ei senkään vuoksi että palava kuusi paukkui pihkaisuutensa vuoksi kiusallisesti kun yritit nukkua. Mutta eipä yli satavuotisia kuusikeloja olisi ollut rakovalkeoihin riittävästi. Siitä pitää tyvilaho...

The fifth among the ten priorities in the political guidelines for the Juncker Commission is a deeper and fairer economic and monetary union (EMU). The blog post Future of Europe: introducing deepening EMU mentioned the Five Presidents’ Report, officially Completing Europe’s Economic and Monetary Union , from June 2015. On pages 4-5 the presidents set out the basic elements: Progress must happen on four fronts: first, towards a genuine Economic Union that ensures each economy has the...

i found a tv show (non-reality!!) on Channel4 that im liking; Professor T . its kind of humorous detective show, with weird music.  also, i like many british tv ads. they are inventive, competion does that i guess - its the same with US ads. or am i jst imagining, perhaps they appeal for another reason? maybe cultural differences, i just havent recognized patterns?  there are geuinely surprising moments and sometimes i go "wow, good job". even car ads can be pleasing at times. im considering...

Pitkästä aikaa ehdin koota linkkivinkkejä. Alunperin näiden piti tulla jo viimekuussa, mutta elämä tapahtui. Joten tässä nämä nyt sitten vihdoin ovat, vähän kaikkea. After a long time I finally had time to put together link roundup. Originally I was going to publish this last month, but life happened. So here they finally are, little bit […]

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Official story of Las Vegas shooting unravels; physical impossibility of lone gunman senior citizen makes narrative ludicrous tekstissään Adams osoittaa jälleen kerran, ettei hän jaksa miettiä omia pointtejaan loppuun asti.

We are approaching the moment of truth. Let us wait for the “Leaders’ Agenda” president Donald Tusk is going to present to the European Council (EUCO), before we definitively state that the EU27 heads of state or government have become impetus takers, instead of impetus providers, as they imagined in Article 15(1) TEU. But the years since the Lisbon Treaty entered into force have revealed the limitations of an intergovernmental EU, while the world has become even more challenging. The...

The European Council (EUCO) meets 19 and 20 October 2017 to agree on how to respond to the reform impulses for the future of Europe. The EUCO president Donald Tusk is consulting with the EU27 heads of state or government to present a “Leaders’ Agenda”. President Macron has told the public that France is going to recognise the symbols of the European Union , including the European flag with twelve stars,  at the EUCO meeting next week. This probably means a notification to join the...

I had a one-week holiday in the first week of September. I though I was going to read some crime novels that were sitting on my Kindle. Well, yeah, I did, but it took longer than a week. I read Barry Malzberg's first Lone Wolf novel, Night Raider , written as by Mike Barry (forgot to blog about it) and then I read W. Glenn Duncan Rafferty's Rules (about which I blogged here ). I also started Lawrence Block's old sleaze title, Sex Without Strings , but it didn't seem interesting enough (no crime...

 Pistetään nyt vähän kampoihin sateiselle tiistaille ja otetaan inspistä ihan vaan iloksi. Järjestin kemianlasitelineet, jotka ovat mun suosikkeja kouluhuutokauppa-aarteista, kemianlaseille ja kukkasille. Tai eihän näistä kukkanen ole ainutkaan, oksasiahan nämä. Pari oksaa kukkakaupasta, suuri lehtinen eukalyptus, vaaleanpunainen lumimarja ja kolmannen nimen jo unohdin tyystin, mutta kaunista oksaa sekin. Saniaisen näköiset verotin omasta kukasta jonka nimeä en tiedä. Ostin sen...

   Kalle Mustonen is a Finnish contemporary artist who reimagines modern culture in monumental and mythic terms, as in his intriguing large-scale wooden sculptures with shed-like interiors that visitors are often invited to peek into. The Gnome King series is based on stories from European folklore and recalls a certain variety of garden ornament. It also references a darker ecological and political message.      I met and worked with Kalle in 2004 in Orivesi, Finland, and immediately knew...

Since the official release date of Middle-earth: Shadow of War is tomorrow, this feels like a good moment to say a few words about its predecessor, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor , or, to those of us who play the Lord of the Rings living card game , The Morgul Vale : the video game. John Howe: In Mordor , 1989. ** I've been playing the Xbox One version, so strictly speaking this is a review of that. Set between the events of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, you play a Gondorian ranger on a...

In Ireland, I had to go and test the local night life, of course. I love pubs! We went to see Irish football, which is really strange because they run the ball in hands! Well, the game was Dublin vs Mayo, it seemed to be very important game to the local people. I naturally encouraged another team Mayo :'D I met a lot of new people, some of them end up being my Facebook friends. When you order ginger beer, you get this ( Ginger ale and whiskey separately ) When you have been drinking too much...

My last empties post also covered two months. I kind of like the idea of making this a bimonthly thing! Anyway, here's my most recent report of all the stuff I've managed to use up. Lumene's Waterproof Eye-Makeup Remover makes yet another appearance. They changed the packaging earlier this year. Here you can see the old and the new bottle side by side. I like the new version a lot. I think it looks a lot sleeker and more current than the old, slightly tapered one. The old packaging on the right...
