Links Golf Society -

The nature of Ireland never ceases to amaze. Its every county has its own character and its unique way to charm visitors. After experiencing the huge dunes of Carne Links, in County Mayo, you drive two hours south and face something totally different. Connemara is so raw and rugged - yet equally beautiful in its own way. There are stones everywhere. The story behind Connemara is a great example how a golf course can change a whole community. During the 60's, small villages on the west coast of...

Ensimmäisenä Suomessa -- ei vaan toisena -- parisenkymmentä minuuttia myöhässä perusteellisen kääntämisprosessin vuoksi Signorinan blogi tiedottaa, että tänään, maanantaina 30.10.2006, Gallaudetin yliopiston johtokunta on päättänyt irtisanoa Dr. Jane K. Fernandesin sopimuksen. (Kuva: Washington Post. Christopher Corrigan, yksi telttakaupungin johtohahmoista riemuitsee kuultuaan johtokunnan päätöksestä.) (Kuva: Washington Post.

The Venetian Alternative. The current centre-left government of Finland has brought into national focus an ugly beast that has already raised its head globally. The apparent unwillingness to accept change of the noughties is in stark contrast to the breakneck pace of technological development and social change of the 1990's, and indeed the latter half of the 20th century - although I'll have to go by the words of wiser authors on anything preceding the 90's. Are we returning to the same...

The president that should've been. I am talking, of course, about Al Gore. Loving, caring, and utterly boring, the man who won the popular vote in the latest American presidential election has kept a low profile in the ever-cooling atmosphere of post-9/11 America. Just last week though, when he finally opened his mouth in a public address for the first time in a year or so, the message that boomed out was clear and grave. The former vice-president spoke at an event organised by MoveOn.org , an...

In my mind, there can be no cooler country than one issuing postal stamps which are vinyl records that can actually be played! The stamps were issued already in 1973, but 40 years later I am  myself going to Bhutan for one year contract as a UN volunteer. Yay! (Photo: http://creativeroots.org/2009/08/1973-record-stamps-of-bhutan/) Listen to the Bhutan record stamp short sound clips, a) brief description of Bhutan: http://mp3archives.wfmu.org/archive/FL/bhut1.mp3 and b) Bhutanese music...

"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...

Christmas, the most commercial religious holiday of all is approaching. One might think that the materialistic, carnevalistic celebration of religious holidays would not have reached Bhutan yet – wrong. The two tsechu s, religious festivals I have testified in Thimphu, the capital and in Bumthang, Central Bhutan have had a vast selection of attractions outside the official programme of sacred dances ( cham ): gambling, drinking, dancing girls...you know, the usual things you would associate...

Bhutanese people often ask how do I like Bhutan, adding that "it must be very different from your country".  Actually, in many ways, it isn't.  Just to name a few common things between Finland and Bhutan:  Forest coverage in Finland: 78 %, in Bhutan: 72 % People are modest and don't like bragging about themselves Showing emotions is not common, and talking about them is even less common And finally, alcohol consumption is high (highest in South Asia), and the people who drink, drink a lot...

Kävimme taas Panun kanssa hakemassa auton vuokraamosta, tällä kertaa se on sitä varten, että pääsen täältä ensin Pennsylvaniaan tapaamaan Ritaa ja sieltä sitten jatketaan JFK:lle ensi viikolla. No, mutta niistä autovuokraamoista. Käytämme yleensä National Car Rentalia täällä Ithacassa. Kuten jo nimikin kertoo, yleensä vuokra-auto on joku kansallinen ylpeys eli Chevrolet, Chrysler tai Pontiac (ei sentään Lincoln , harmi kyllä). Meillä on usein ollut Chryslerin PT Cruiser...

10. Baustelle (151) Rakkautta 9. The National (170/5.) The National ei syleile mua niin kiihkeästi kuin toivoisin. Mä olen yrittänyt, ja kovasti. Harmi, että meidän tiet menee aina ristiin, sillä keikka voisi vetää maton jalkojen alta. Toivottavasti saan siihen jonain päivänä mahdollisuuden. 8. Band of Horses (179/8.) Band of Horses on oikeasti top viidessä. Olen kuunnellut Infinite Armsia lukemattomia kertoja, vaikka se onkin vähän hötömpi kuin aiemmat levyt. Ai, Texasin...

Valérian kanssa vaihdettiin pari kortti keväällä. Minä sain nämä upeat kortit: São Paulon katedraali ja Pantanalin luonnonpuisto. Kiitos Valéria! I got these cards from Valéria (from Brazil). The cathedral of São Paulo is gorgeous and the multiview of Pantanal National Park is really nice too! Thank you Valéria!

Introduction             Last but not least is my final paper. This paper which is different from the rest is where I did more research then use my own actual knowledge. I chose a topic where I felt strongly about, chose a side on it and used my research to further prove my point.             I felt as if this was my best paper, because of the effort and time put into it. It was difficult at times sticking to one side of an argument, but the more research found the easier...

Wow.. it has been a long time since I wrote here last time. Heh, it's a bit funny that I wrote earlier that I will write here maybe twice a month. Huh, that just ain't gonna work. I realized that I am living here on Pulau Penang just an ordinary life. Nothing very special is going to happen that often. So I decided to forget this blog for a while. But now I am back. Why? Probably because I felt like writing something up again. I just felt like gathering my memories here a little bit. The thing...

Hello people. After returning to Oulu, I kept myself superbusy by working about 5 diaz a week, going to school, and playing basketball, while dedicating almost all of my free time to skyping with my better half. Needless to say, days and weeks went by really fast. Had I not had all these preoccupations, my head would have inevitably imploded from the exessive boredom that my dear old city exudes. Nevertheless, by early November, as days began to grow darker, I knew i had to escape the darkness...

Työikäisistä jopa 35 prosenttia nukkuu liian vähän, sanoo akatemiatutkija Timo Partonen Terveyden ja hyvinvoinnin laitokselta. Tutkijoita askarruttaa se, voiko nukkumalla laihtua. Parhaillaan käynnissä olevien amerikkalaistutkimusten mukaan riittävä uni vaikuttaa painon hallintaan. ”Lyhytunisuus kasvattaa lihavuuden riskin naisilla 1,75-kertaiseksi ja miehillä 1,46-kertaiseksi. Suomalaisista 1,6 prosenttia on terveitä lyhytunisia ja 2,0 prosenttia terveitä pitkäunisia", latelee...

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

So we got back to business on the 21st of May. We were supposed to start the wednesday evening before, but Sami got busy, so the plan was changed. We ended up cleaning the bands practise room on wednesday and kicking back a couple of brews. This time the original plan was to do the guitars at the bands practise room anyhow, so it was easier to just stay there for the night. Sami came from Vantaa bright and early, and we kicked ourselves up at about the time he arrived, so it was straight to...

"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...

Radiohead: Kid A Emi, 2000 Tunnen vieläkin toisinaan olevani vasta tutustumassa asioihin, kuten musiikkiin esimerkiksi. Siinä missä muut viettivät yläaste- ja lukiovuodet angstaamalla synkän musiikin (tai reippaan hevihölkän, tai juntahtavan euroteknon) parissa ja piirrellen bändien logoja, minä vähät kiinnostuin. Vasta parikymppisenä ajauduin musiikin pariin, enkä silloinkaan piitannut ajankohdan (90-luvun jälkipuoliskon) artisteista, vaan etsin levykauppojen hyllyistä 60- ja...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE On May 31, 2010, Israeli commandos brutally attacked Freedom Flotilla 1, killing eight Turkish and one American passenger on board the Mavi Marmara, most having been killed at close range, execution style.. They injured more than 50 other passengers, both on the Mavi Marmara and on the other four boats sailing to the embattled territory of Gaza to bring the attention of the world to Israel’s illegal blockade of 1.6 million Palestinians. Not only were our passengers...

Yay, I finished my thesis! Well, it's written completely now, but now I'm waiting for my instructors to read it. Hopefully they won't ask me to throw the whole thing out of the window and start over. I'm trying hard not to think about scenarios like that. Last couple of weeks I've had insomnia which I have never had before. I hope that it's a result from the thesis and it will go away now. Probably the insomnia also is a result of the fact that I haven't done any exercise at all for... four...

Jostain syystä olen viime aikoina hirmuisesti kiinnittänyt huomiota lyriikoihin – ja itse asiassa myös lukenut runoutta, kotimaista Eeva Kilpeä . Tuntuu, että tällä hetkellä kuin haen jotain sanoituksista; keskityn, koitan päästä jyvälle jostain merkittävästä. Suureen suosiooni ovat taannoin tiensä löytäneet niin Metric kuin aiemmin mainittu Olavi Uusivirta ja The National kin. Metric on hyväntuulista ja helppoa, mutta ihan älyttömän hyvin tehtyä indiepoppia/-rockia...

Arrests. Threats. Raided offices and confiscated computers. A closed court case with activities surrounding it strongly implying there is no way the accused will be treated fairly. The police and the authorities not respecting the rule of law. And all this has to do with Chechnya again, though surprisingly not in Russia but in the European Union. The following is written for the European Court by the Lithuanian Human Rights workers. Best of luck to you and your case! As for the kids in the...

Lavrenti Beriya (1899–1953). Originally Georgian. At the highest times of his glory Stalin's right hand, head of the KGB. After getting rid of his predecessor Yezhov (killing him in Lubyanka, the KGB prison in Moscow), Beriya was responsible for the deportations from the Baltic states, among other things. Politkovskaya's assassination is still badly investigated and therefore, of course, the murderer unpunished. But, like almost everybody who have been following this, I am very sure the...

An MP has very nearly talked himself into supporting today's "Perverts Wear Purple" day - by accident. And it could hardly have happened to a less likely politician: Ronnie Campbell, one of the most down-to-earth and decent men in the Commons. The 64-year-old former miner and Labour Member of Parliament for Blyth Valley was approached and asked to wear something purple to support National Fetish Day. He said he would wear a purple shirt. Unfortunately, no one had told Ronnie what the word...
