Looking back couple years there has been "one big change" happening in our life each year. Change of country, moving places, change of job, getting married, birth of children etc. This year it will be significant change in my employment. I am leaving Nokia this month, after six years, and I'm heading to a researcher position in Finnish Defence Forces! One can say that this will be a big change in company ways of working, scope and the whole technology context. On the other hand, I am looking...

In the world today there is tremendous amount of activity around the subject matter called anthropogenic global warming (AGW). It is claimed, that the human created increase of CO2 in the atmosphere has caused, and will increasingly cause increases in temperatures. UN sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was awarded a Nobel prize in making AGW known within the political circles and in the worldwide community. Significant amount of economical resources are invested and...

I have always been inspired by people who have made changes to make the world a better place. You probably know some of them. Or maybe you saw CNN's Top 10 Heroes of 2009 , announced on Thursday. Those people saw a need and found a way they could fill it. But agents of change can be ordinary people like you and me. We all have dreams, creative desires. I think we are meant to be our dreams for ourselves and the world. By being our best selves, to quote Oprah, we are agents of change for the...

Bad news to my customers outside Europe. Finnish mail discontinues Economy shipping in the beginning of May, so in the future all orders from my shop have to be sent in more expensive Priority mail. This doesn't affect orders sent to Europe, as they have already been in Priority mail in the past, also orders to outside Europe which have been sent as packages with tracking have been in Priority mail, and there will be no significant change in those prices.

München (Munich) Obama has certainly started with Big Changes. And Joe Biden, now travelling in Munich, is seemingly backing up the President and moving forward with the new American agenda. According to a news release from Russia, " European media reported that Biden may voice Obama’s idea on a radical – up to 80% – slashing of U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals. " Gosh. Many are still sceptical, of course, wondering if Obama can really change things -- will he be able to, is he a puppet...

Kuva . Aika pohtia ilmastonmuutosta, matkailua ja tekoja. Myös ideoita. Moni on varmaan huomannut ettei lokakuussa enää kuuluisi olla +17C kesälämpötiloja pohjoisessa. Olen muistellut sitä kun lapsena saattoi olla jo lunta kouluun mennessä lokakuussa, enää ei. Mielestäni ilmasto on aivan viime vuosina muuttunut todella paljon, lämpimäksi ja sateiseksi. Mitä siitä seuraa jos ilmasto lämpenee niin kovasti jatkossakin. Näin myös somessa videon jossa uitiin etelä-Italiassa...

Gummere in the stoics.com The letter begins: Hoc tibi soli...

With a new year upon us, I've looked at my blogs with a fresh eye. This one has a bunch of things I need to consider: There's the name. I regret it, since it's so obscure you can't tell at all what the blog's about. Initially I thought I didn't care about readers, but it looks like you can reach a reasonable audience these days, and now the name feels like dead weight. Then again, there are sites like rllmukforum.com , which obviously don't have any problems because of their obscure name. I...

Lämpenevä ilmasto työntää eliölajeja kohti napa-alueita ja vuorten huippuja.

Newsweek reports that the US government is debating the "Salvador option" in Iraq: creating death squads in the style of El Salvador and other US client states in Latin America. This would be a logical development. The occupation is failing ever more rapidly, and at this point it seems unlikely that conventional military force can defeat the Iraqi resistance. The great foreign policy successes of the US have not been in colonial war as in Vietnam, but in neo-colonial state terror as in Latin...

BOLIVARIAN VENEZUELA IN THE AXIS OF AGGRESSION For years Venezuela has been in the axis of systematic aggression and distortion by the media. The situation escalated yet further when the right wing coalition party MUD seized power in the 2015 elections after having won a clear majority of National Assembly seats in the country. According to President Nicolas Maduro the current situation resembles the spring 2002 coup attempt a lot. The same forces are attempting yet another coup. Because of...

kuva. Mitä matkailu on opettanut minulle, tässä useita asioita: - Majoitus kannattaa aina varata etukäteen ja silloin voi löytää edullisemman. Enää ei kannata lähteä reissuun vailla majoitusta, sillä muuten voi päätyä kyselemään majoitusta täysistä majoituksista. On suorastaan ihme että olen aiemmin löytänyt majoituksia tuohon tyyliin, mutta viime kesänä se oli erittäin vaikeaa. On useita ja lukuisia eri tapahtumia sekä tilaisuuksia jotka vaikuttaa majoitusten...

Was reading an article about Chrysler decreasing their decision time drastically and that led me to thinking about metrics that could be used to measure decision making. Couldn't think of any besides the obious of length of decision process. Brief googling didn't make me much smarter either. Please provide links if I have been blind and overlooked something. I would think it would be good to start with question if measuring decision making is even necessary? I think so, if for nothing else then...

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...

Monet tuntureiden kasvilajit ovat riippuvaisia myöhään sulavista kinoksista. Lumi tarjoaa suojaa talven kovilta pakkasilta, mutta se myös rajoittaa kasvukauden pituutta estäen eteläisempien lajien leviämisen. Siksi lumipeitteen väheneminen voi olla arktisille lajeille jopa suurempi uhka kuin lämpötilan nousu. Jääleinikki.

I'm a bit disappointed in contemporary journalism. Too little attention is devoted to the glorious art of following-up. It seems to me that news media is way too focused on tomorrow, tonight (and possibly on the "right now" although not much), which consequently leaves the history and yesterday all gray and forgotten in the dumpster in the back yard. I'd appreciate a remembrance every now and then, a check up if you will, of the goals, beliefs and visions at earlier days and how it all turned...
