The Finnish Ulysses -

Yksi syy siihen että en juhannuksenalusviikolla päivitellyt oli, että halusin mahdollisimman paljon lukea Paul K. Saint-Amourin (nimi ei muutettu) kirjaa The Copywrights (ei kirjoitusvirhettä; Cornell University Press 2003), jonka viimeinen luku on otsikoitu ”James Joyce, Copywright: Modernist Literature Property Metadiscourse”. Saint-Amour käy läpi läntisen tekijänoikeussäädännön historiaa ja ideologiaa, ajatuksenaan tarkastella sitä ei kirjallisuuteen nähden ulkoisena...

Amerikkalainen tyttö -

Olen taas myöhään kotona. En saa tarpeekseni kukkivista puista, joka puolelta esiin työntyvistä tulppaaneista, magnoliapuista, joiden alla on valkoisten terälehtien meri, auringosta, joka vielä tähän aikaan paistaa jalkapallokentän takaa siihen rinteeseen, jonka luona asun. Lämpimät, pitkät päivät harhauttavat minut luulemaan, että on kesä, ja että voin olla avoin kaikille ehdotuksille: että töiden sijasta voin mennä rantaan meksikolaisen ravintolan taakse ja katsella joen...

Jussi Halla-aho has made the decision to make a move into politics, something he persisted earlier he would not do. However, in an announcement made on his website on the 20th of June, he declared that he would be running as an independent candidate for the True Finns in the Helsinki voting district. For those who are not acquainted with Mr. Halla-aho and his opinions should know that he is a fine writer with iron logic and a vicious sense of humour, the latter which he usually directs at the...

The Real Encyclopedia -

I received a letter (what a great thing that people still write letters) asking the following question: What if the world was a perfect place? The answer lies between your eyes and your LCD display: At first, if the world was a perfect place, there would be more beavers. As an animal, beaver is a good example of a happy creature. Building and building, without a real reason to build. It doesn´t questionize its reason to live or its function on the earth. It just builds. It shows us how we...

Why I am not a Liberal Note: I am using 'stereotypical' liberal opinions, which I reflect on here, and I'm well aware that these are by no means the opinions of all people who call themselves liberal. Here is simply a random collection of view points, which I've perceived to be fundamental to and dircetly connected to liberal thinking and which I disagree with from a meta-political and philosophical point of view. This is an absolutely biased analysis from an absolutely biased point of view...

BBC News , a bastion of political correctness, has gone out of its way and published the following article : Does diversity make us unhappy? By Mark Easton Home editor, BBC News It is an uncomfortable conclusion from happiness research data perhaps - but multicultural communities tend to be less trusting and less happy. Research by the Home Office suggests that the more ethnically diverse an area is, the less people are likely to trust each other. The Commission for Racial Equality has also...

This is a war that is being waged, and has been waged for many years now, in all major Swedish cities. The truth of this conflict is denied, it is lied about and it is ignored. This war does not exist officially. The majority of the victims of this war are, as in so many wars, innocent civilians. In this case young Swedes. Petra Åkersson has compiled a sociology report and conducted several interviews with young immigrant robbers. I found it surprising, that the results of this report were...

I was reading today my favourite blog. I haven't read it for a while and through it I found a couple of new interesting blogs. I got to laugh many times when reading them. Why couldn't I try this also. And because I'm far away from my native country, I thought, I could keep contact to my friends this way (many flies at the same time...). I'm lazy to write otherwise. So what happened today... Once upon a time there was a little girl, or sometimes I would wish it that I would never had grown...

A free diary -

Tell them to let our people go To all: By now you’ve no doubt heard the news about Hillary’s people defining the about to take off Gaza flotilla as a “provacative act”! Could Obama be getting a bit nervous that he might have to take a stand? He may be nervous but not as much as the Israeli government that is throwing everything in the book at them to prevent them from even leaving the shores. Below is a partial dialogue from the State Dept. press conference where Matt Lee of the AP was...

Yritys ilman yhteystietoja -

BOB on jo pidemmän aikaa mehustellut fantasialla siitä, että Yhdysvaltain keskilännen uskonnollisen hihhulioikeiston teemat rantautuisivat Suomeen. Toukokuinen aborttilääkäri George Tillerin murha ja sen linkit aborttihihhulien Operation Rescue -järjestöön rikkoivat toki uutiskynnyksen Suomessakin. Bob haluaisi kuitenkin jo päästä kysymään: “What’s the Matter with Keskisuomi?” BOB ei tiedä, onko tässä nyt kyse Johdatuksesta vai sattumasta. Joka tapauksessa […]

Minnin näpertelyt -

People are always looking for opportunity to hit the big time, either in number or card games. They incessantly try their luck by playing until a perfect match to win the game and win the other players. This is not entirely surprising, because just like poker, you can even win $ 10 000, when you play poker online. It is a huge amount of extra money into the game. Poker is a very popular game that has gone mainstream, especially in America. So how do you play poker online? If you know the basic...

Tämä postaus liittyy "Käsityöblogit" Facebook -ryhmän DIY helmikuu -kalenteriin, jossa jokaiselle osallistujalle annettiin oma päivä, jolloin tulisi julkaista jokin työ tee-se-itse -hengessä. Tässä tulee siis minun päiväni.  Törmäsin ensimmäistä kertaa kateliinoihin viime jouluna, kun anoppikokelaani  oli laittanut joulupöydän kattaukseen sellaiset. Idea oli mielestäni hyvin näppärä, koska päällekäin olevat lautaset eivät kirsku toisiaan vasten kraavilohta sahatessa...

Mikä ihana lakka: Nubarin "Fiery Red" ! Ei ehkä tulenpunainen, mutta raivonpunainen. :) Kuvassa keinovalo antaa aavistuksen liian kirkkaanpunaisen sävyn, luonnossa syvemmän punainen, enemmän magentaa. Upea, hehkuva väri. Lakka levittyy kuin unelma, kaksi kerrosta takaa täyden peittävyyden. Alla Nubarin oma Ridge Filler aluslakka. Tällä kertaa kokeilussa hieman erilaiset tarrat, joissa ei ole sitä ympäröivää muovia lainkaan. Eipä rypistynyt, mutta tarra on jäykempi ja vaati...

Grüezi! -

Or better, german medicine. Some examples: On my first day I was told to be the one to mix and set the iv-infusions. Since I had never done it before (nurses do that in Scandinavia and Switzerland, and also in Germany, when the med students aren´t there= in the evenings, at night), I naturally asked a nurse for help. But since I´m a med student, she directly said and very unfriendly: " It´s not my job to show you, you have to ask the doctors for advices!". So, I said I can´t, can you show...

I wish I knew how to update the colors and styles on this blog... I'm sick of the blue. Or maybe I'm just jealous of Emily's new look. Tonight we went over to Brian's dad's house for dinner. Overall, it went very well... but as always, it had its moments of absurdity. We were discussing the fact that Brian is trying to get a job for 3 weeks while we are in Cincinnati, and Michelle (Brian's stepmom) for some reason kept suggesting that he try to be a substitute teacher. "She has a friend who is...

Finn again wakes -

I´ve been asked to write an article about the prospects of peace in Iraq for a Finnish pacifist publication. While this may seem like a very difficult task, I have some ideas, and they should not be discarded immediately. I personally think that the occupation troops should leave now. The counter-argument is that they should stay there until things get more peaceful. This is the old imperialist argument: we´ll go, once we´ve sorted out everything. Unfortunately (or perhaps naturally) no...

On Winning -

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...

Fox tales without heads -

Things are looking up. If all goes well I will have only one treatment left. And my doctor gave me permission to travel in June! So I registered for the conference in Paris. I have even been slowly working towards producing a paper and have something more than a foggy idea of what to say. Now I am just restlessly waiting whether the university gives me a travel grant or not. Then there is also the matter of a cloud of volcanic ash over Europe, but maybe that will disperse by June? I handed in...

Bortsa - My so called life -

Do you know the feeling when it seems that if you'd disappear right this second no one would notice? No one would even care.. Everyone would go about their business as usual and that one disappearance wouldn't have the slightest effect in their life. Well if you know that feeling, then you know how I'm feeling right now. Have been for a while. It makes you feel very small and insignificant. I actually did vanish for a while, just to see what would happen. Guess what? Nothing happened. Nobody...

Nordic Exposure -

I need to tell you something about myself and I figured this would be one way of doing it. If it bores you to death, move on. Usually I wake up sometime between 6 and 7 a.m. unless I need to sleep in. Saturdays and Sundays I often get to sleep until 8 but then my 4-year-old son wakes me up. Here I'll call him B, that's short for Baby Boy (I know he isn't a baby anymore but I get to call him that anyway, don't I). I drink some coffee, maybe read the paper and play a while with B. Once or twice a...

Dear Reader(s), I'm sorry I have neglected you this long. I didn't mean to, it just happened, etc. Life gets pretty busy at times, as you (all) well know. A great thinker and a cherished friend once said: In the end, you just have to do what you have to do. It may be right, it may be wrong, and it may not matter. But we don't get a do-over. This is what I wanted to share with you on this bleak January morning.

Obiter dictum -

Embedded in every man is a latent power, such that has the dynamic ability to bring about and cause any kind of desired change in any situation. It is a recognizable fact that every form of human association, organization or unit, with a definite purpose (whether good or evil, noble or immoral) has a ‘soul’. And such, is given life by the innate conviction and beliefs of the individual members of such group. Revolutionary changes in every society have always been as a result of such...

Wild joys and wilder sins -

I’m on a study break right now. A month of independent studying at home before the final exams. I guess it’s relaxing in a way, not having to worry about school stuff or work. On the other hand though, I’m still stressed as hell because I’m not studying enough. Every day is a struggle as I try to force myself to open the books and read and do math and make notes. I set a goal of 5 hours per day but I’ve already fallen behind. Today, I studied for about 2-3 hours. WHERE THE HELL IS MY...

Wild joys and wilder sins -

” It’s decent, but it’s not brilliant.” That’s what my teacher said about my essay. Or actually, a collection of essays/commentaries. He said they were all lacking that something, that little something that distinguishes 7 from 5-6 (in IB 7 is the best grade you can get). I have to admit that I was at first a bit shocked, then devastated, then disappointed. I had always thought those essays were good and I was especially happy with the latest one. But apparently it just wasn’t...

STUFF ON MY MIND -

I've been reading John Holt's Instead of Education, and that book too has both made me hopeful and incredibly sad. It feels so sad to notice that had my parents wanted to offer me a good environment they could've, there would have been resources out there. The contrast to what they chose to do is shuddering.  One of those things they chose to do was to hit us. The instances I remember were all situations in which my intentions were misinterpreted, and where I was already feeling really bad due...

Af-riikka -

During the last two weeks my lunches have mostly consisted of apples, porridge or bread with spread cheese and/or sardines. Besides the end of delicious free meals with loads of rice, oil and fish at work, the month of Ramadan in Senegal means that everything slows down when people are more tired due to fasting during daytime. August is one of the hottest months in the region of Thies where I am located, and this does not make fasting easy. Yesterday the rain cooled the temperature to a level...

I was almost shocked when I looked the date when I last posted here... I have been longer times now at hospital and without any proper internet connection. I don' know really... I have somehow more or less forgotten this. I haven't been so suicidal anymore. Partly because of the hospital. Partly because I finally quit thinking we would be friends ever anymore with H. She isn't interested in friendship enough to get any dent to her ego. She isn't willing to admit that she would have done a...
