Ain't talking -

For the last couple of years the so called head shops have been supplying Irish people with all sorts of "legal highs". The recession might have hit many businesses but these little nests of controversy kept flourishing. That was until a couple of weeks back when the government panic-banned pretty much all the products they were selling. I'm not a great supporter of any substance that hasn't gone through a series of clinical trials to determine what exactly it does to people. Some of the legal...

Second Life Blog by Aino Kanto -

In our ubiquitous information technology based society we need to manage through every day life which is more and more full of new challenges: electronic forms, web based tools, social networking sites, and virtual worlds such as Second Life.To meet those challenges we have developed a great variety of services and facilities in our Adult Education Centre of the City of Helsinki, where we have,

I am a Scandinavian and we, unlike the Americans, do not read John Stuart Mill as part of our general education. At least that is the image I have, as an outsider, of American education, but do correct me if I'm wrong. " On Liberty " is in any case a famous and central work of American political thinking, and since I thus had never read the work, the other day I thought that now would be a time as good as any to finally take a look into it. I must confess that I haven't come far on it yet, but...

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...

As someone mentioned, now that I actually enjoy my work the name of the blog has lost some of its power, but let's keep it that way since I believe there will once again be a day when I will hate my job! Here's why: future is gonna suck for the most of us. Since the Industrial revolution of the 18th century we have been building our society on one principle - growth. Everything must grow, be it productivity, salaries, personal wealth, etc. Capitalism is system where EVERYTHING is based on that...

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...

In Ilta-Sanomat 21.05.2005 there was an article of Juha-Pekka Tikka, according to which the Business information system , a State's own register, has terminated the State of Finland already beginning from 1.1.1993. According to Ilta-Sanomat “The termination of the state was at his time the vision of Karl Marx , among others, on the post-revolution world, but today the thought is supported first and most by the right-wing libertalists .The expenditures of the Estimates of the State of Finland...

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...

Yesterday I found from an antiquarian bookshop a biography of Herbert Spencer written by Otto Gaupp in 1911 (the language used in this Finnish translation from German is touchingly old-fashioned). The book (which I'm still reading) raises Spencer as one of the greatest philosophers who has ever been alive. And for good reason, as it was actually him, not Darwin, who should be considered the father of evolutionism. At his time Spencer was widely respected as a versatile genius, but today his...

Despite of numerous appeals, demonstrations and strong critisism among the specialists and media (in Finland and abroad), today the Finnish Parliament will put the so called Lex Nokia to the vote in the plenary session. EDIT: The Government porposal was approved some time ago in a 96-56 vote, with 47 parlamentarians absent. "Lex Nokia", because the whole idea of the law, let alone big parts of the text itself, has been put together by the reps of the Nokia company. Also in the Finnish media...

Introduction             I will begin my journey here. This paper let me express who I was through my thoughts on what literacy is to me. I expressed my views through my family and the ways we do and say certain things, basically our character as a whole. Throughout my life I showed how my experiences with literacy played a major role in the person I’ve become today. Being the first paper of the semester, this is where I first introduced myself as a writer. Not exactly sure of...

It is ridiculous, really. This whole program, since December 2006, has gone so fast. A little too fast, perhaps. It's funny to think about actually going back to fin land in a couple of weeks. And sad, too. I t hink Sapporo, and my friends I made here, really grew on me. I feel at home.

Introduction             Being the second paper I wrote during the semester this paper comes next in this journey. With this paper it was more than just writing a paper, it was more of finding a deeper meaning within a film and expressing it with words. In class we watched the film The Social Network. We each had to discuss in a paper what we believed the cultural artifact the movie was trying to portray. It was hard to set myself on one specific idea, because there were so many seen...

Dili Days Decrease -

I haven't been updating my blog properly for a while, so I haven't reported that it was not only Dili in turmoil, but we had some terrifying incidents here in Helsinki too. These things happened around 1st of May celebrations, which are a really big thing here, but I missed them this year because of an irritating deadline for a conference paper, set very untoughtfully to 1st of May (no cultural sensitivity there!). Robin has been covering both Dili and Helsinki incidents in his blog, so look...

Taman kohdan alaisuuteen kuuluu myos nuorisoasiat. Nuorisodelegaateista kaikki paitsi Malta ja Romania saivat pitaa puheen maansa puolesta. Ainoastaan Ruotsia ja Norjaa sensuroitiin etukateen.

Tässä teille pitämäni puhe Nykissä täkäläistä aikaa sunnuntaiaamuna.

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...

We face one of the most vicious armies in the world, armed with only our determination. On this, the second anniversary of Israel's brutal assault on Gaza when 1400 Palestinians were killed, we want you to know you are not forgotten. If governments refuse to hold Israel accountable for its war crimes against a civilian population, we, in civil society will...

"In Bhutan, chilli is not a spice. It is a vegetable." These were some of the wise words I was told during the flash introduction to culture, security and practical issues in Bhutan by the UN security officer during my first week. Since then, I have been asked the question "how are you coping with the food here?" in a worried tone, as not everyone is as fond of chillies in every single dish as the Bhutanese are. Selection of Bhutanese dishes at the Folk Heritage Museum restaurant. Chilli sauce...

"The Bhutanese love archery. They also love drinking. They tend to combine their two passions, and this is worrying." Before coming to Bhutan, I read a pile of books trying to grasp this country, most of them written by Westerners. Out of these travel/autobiography accounts Eric Weiner's " The Geography of Bliss - One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World", described by the author as "a philosophical humorous travel memoir" was one of my favourites. His quote above is not that far...

Again it's one of those times in the year when the whole population of China goes on holiday at the same time. Only those working in the tourist industry stay at work to count their gold, but the other 1,3 billion people are all fighting for that same seat on the train. Here in Beijing, though, things quiet down in the areas that are usually busy with commuter traffic and people going about their

Yesterday, reading about Fallujah while looking at background material for a demonstration outside the BBC, donating to an emergency response to help the refugees, listening to Patti Smith's song cash , I was overcome by an unexpected emotion. Thinking about the reported 70% of buildings destroyed, homes in ruins, hundreds of thousands of refugees, hundreds massacred, rotting corpses eaten by dogs on the streets, continuing killing, I am overcome by anguish.

   According to the 2010 report of American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation remains to be the top cosmetic surgical procedure of 2009. In 2008, an estimated 307,000 cases of breast augmentation were filed and although there is a 6% decrease in 2009, this surgical procedure still remains on top of the list.    Breast augmentation, otherwise known as augmentation mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to enlarge (or augment) breasts in order to achieve a fuller...

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...

Almost, anyway... The Episcopal House of Deputies elected Canon Gene Robinson as bishop of New Hampshire. His appointment to the post by the House of Bishops, his future peers, was to be a rubber-stamp routine operation. Robinson would have then become the first openly homosexual person to hold such a high position in one of the major Christian churches - after Canon Jeffrey John turned down his own appointment as the Bishop of Reading. While there is, if not evidence, then at least certainly...
