Vihaan työtäni -

A dialog I think that blogs should be dialogue, not a monologue. I just realized that mine has been the latter one and I want to fix that now. Here are some comments to your comments: "i have heard these type of stories every now and then. i dont know how a little incidence changes lives of people and how do meet their dream. it does not happen with me. i am really stressed. i dont know what to do. people get oppurtunities. i have not come across even one. what should i do ? :'(" -Anonymous...

Hand Made By God -

Olen kaappikristitty. Olen raukkamainen. En uskalla tuoda uskoani Jeesukseen esiin. Kaikkein kamalinta on, mutta aion myöntää tämän ja kirjoittaa sen tänne, pikku pikku riikkisen ehkä jopa häpeän Jeesusta. Hän tietää tämän, sillä olemme keskustelleet asiasta. :) Haluaisin tulla kaapista ulos, mutta se tulee vaatimaan vielä aikamoista rohkaisua. Yksi syy siihen, miksi en huuda Hallelujaa kaduilla tai muutenkaan kovinkaan avoimesti tuo mielipiteitäni esimerkiksi ajankohtaisiin...

Ineksen Päiväkirja - Suodatettua totuutta ja kaunisteltuja val -

Another episode of Vampire the Masquerade! On the following night, the gruesome fivesome met at the young Giovanni’s place to sum up what they had just experienced. Walter and Chiara argumented (read: bickered) about the presumed werewolf, flipping through books, while Dom pondered whether he should pay a visit to Elizabeth von Hess. The team had also recieved a message that Marc de Rouen was nowhere to be found.  It seemed like it was also time to go and ask a certain Malkavian primogen...

A free diary -

The winds of change blowing through the Middle East are bringing enormous hopes for change.  In Egypt, where Hosni Mubarak helped to maintain the siege on Gaza, there is now a big public campaign to open to Rafah crossing. It has not succeeded yet, but the situation in Egypt remains very fluid and hopeful. And the pressure is growing on Israel also to abandon the illegal siege.  Viva Palestina is liaising constantly with our friends in the Middle East to assess what the next steps are to...

Yksi viime vuoden kiinnostavimpia ja kunnianhimoisimpia sarjakuva-albumeita, Duncan the Wonder Dog, myi ensimmäisen painoksen loppuun, ja ennen kuin toinen painos tulee myyntiin, on koko 400-sivuinen albumi luettavissa netissä! Duncan the Wonder Dog kertoo maailmasta, jossa eläimet osaavat puhua, ja vaativat itselleen yhtäläisiä oikeuksia ihmisten kanssa. Tarinan poliittiset ja filosofiset teemat ovat suureellisia, mutta tarina keskittyy kuitenkin pieniin tilanteisiin ihmisten (ja...

Prologue for Morning -

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 I’m so disappointed in people. There is only (self) deceit, confusion and prejudice found in them. I wrote before that maybe I can see the beauty of people as well as of nature now that I don't try to figure out ways to kill myself anymore. Well, It’s not going to happen. There is and will never be any beauty in people. People are only good at twisting and corrupting what they see. Only in nature and music can the...

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...

Nihilistin päiväkirja -

Välillä on hyvä ottaa vähän etäisyyttä asioihin. We are here because an odd group of fishes had a peculiar fin anatomy that could transform into legs for terrestrial creatures; because the earth never froze entirely during an ice age; because a small and tenuous species, arising in Africa a quarter of a million years ago, has managed, so far, to survive by hook and by crook. We may yearn for a "higher" answer - but none exists. This explanation, though superficially troubling, if not...

Oh So Coco -

Two weeks ago I told you I was skipping town on New York fashion week to go host the red carpet event for MTV's VMA's. Turns out it was actually a white carpet but needless to say, it was a very fun experience. For a few hours I was interviewing everyone you can think of and asking them any question I could think of. Really, I had no idea what I was doing but if you missed it I'm posting some of

Oh So Coco -

Fashion Week SS-11 really crept up on me this year. People, IT ALREADY STARTED?! That having been said, the question everyone in fashion has been asking ad nauseum is "What are you doing for Fashions Night Out?". The problem is, there's so much going on! I guess that is a nice problem to have, I've managed to narrow down my list so I just wanted you to know three spots I'll definitely be at.

Lilli Carré: KORPI-PETEN KOOTUT Huuda Huuda, 2008 Anders Nilsen: SISYFOS Huuda Huuda, 2008 Huuda Huudan julkaisemat Sisyfos ja Korpi-Peten Kootut pyrkivät molemmat ravistelemaan kulttuuriimme juurtuneita myyttejä ja legendoja, aseinaan musta huumori ja vähäeleinen absurdismi. Korpi-Peten kootut on Lilli Carré'n esikoisteos, kokoelma lyhyitä pätkiä, joiden päähenkilöinä vuorottelee vanha höppänä Korpi-Pete ja kansantarinoiden legendaarinen metsämies Paul Bunyan.

Last week-end I visited the city of Touba : the holy city of Mouridism , the second-biggest Muslim brotherhood in Senegal and the one with most economic and political power...

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...

76. kirjastoalan IFLA-konferenssi järjestettiin Göteborgissa 10. - 15.8.2010 (IFLA = International Federation of Library Associations). Tapahtuman teema oli “Open access to knowledge - promoting sustainable progress”. Paikalla oli kolme ja puoli tuhatta kirjastolaista kaikenlaisista kirjastoista ympäri maailmaa. Meille kävijöille oli tarjolla monipäiväisen konferenssiohjelman lisäksi kirjastovierailuja, näyttely, postereita ja illanviettoa. Oman höysteensä tapahtumaan toi...

How social media and digital working environments are really changing management, collaboration and organizations? This is the question that is most interesting to me and I believe, very transformational in the long-term on how we relate to each other and how things get done. I was happy to work on this question for a Finnish [...]

i figured it out . Something that was causing me to be troubled and share what i felt to others . I got it . It's been almost a year now since i stopped regarding emotions as an enemy and started living in each moment . I went from shutting everyone out and everything in , to living completely by emotion . One extreme to the other . It did work , though . Until i tied my life to someone. You cannot solve a problem before you know what the question is . I'm like a senior who takes up evening...

Serviced & Virtual Offices - Bishopsgate, Meeting Room Originally uploaded by ExecutiveOffices As part of a project we are doing at Demos Helsinki , I have spent time reviewing and reading various future reports on the competencies and skills the Finnish society and Finnish companies need. One of the big issues seems to be the need for better people skills. Companies and experts see that customers are more and more demanding year by year. Simultaneously companies need to make sure that the best...

Rather who hasn't? When or even you apply for a job, it is relevant to know what kind of google fu karma your name turns. If I was hiring someone before I interviewed the person, I'd see what I can find online. Not just googling them, but also in the usual social medias, Facebook, Linkedin, twitter, myspace... all of them. Bad finds such as complaining about the current or previous employer online would be among the thing to turn me off, but those are of course only relevant when I know that...

Scalada - all about Scala -

Ah, feels good to hack a bit of Scala after a while. A friend of mine was thinking about getting more lightweight syntax for list creation and I had urge to try something out. A simple way would be to create an implicit def that would lift a value to list:      implicit def valueToList[a](value: a) = List(value) Now you could have expressions like      5 :: 3 (of type List[Int]) But just for fun I tried different approach that uses functions as intermediate values. After playing with it a...

It is over. Finally. I am giving up my blog, since no one is reading it. Sad, isn't it? Well, I am gonna sum up past few days and not gonna talk bullshit and then I will officially close this blog. I will leave it to exist in virtual dimensions of internet, but wont be writing on it anymore. I will be writing shit on www.piirituomari.deviantart.com, in the "Journal" section...if anybody even cares dead rat's ass about it. Oh well, even I don't care about it. So, I've been watching war movies...

Amerikkalaista arkipäivää -

Vuoden vaihteessa posti toi meille ilahduttavassa määrin erilaisia kalentereita. Suomalaiset kalenterit päätyivät heti seinälle, koska niissä viikko alkaa totutusti maanantaista. Amerikkalaisten kalenterien esille ripustaminen on sen sijaan hyvin riskialtista, koska amerikkalaiset ovat ryhmitelleet viikkonsa alkamaan sunnuntaista. Suomalainen silmä ei tällaiseen viikon uudelleenjärjestelyyn helposti totu. Amerikkalaisen kalenterin mukaan kulkiessa päätyykin olemaan kaikesta päivän...

I hate Christmas. Not because it is commercial, invented by card companies, nor for the forced happygo-lucky athmosphere. Me and Christmas have been good friends in the past, but now I have good reasons for disliking it. 1. The music For six years, I have been working in stores that play Christmas music. I know the tunes, I know the melodies, and all the lyrics in Finnish and in English. The repetition of the songs is not what annoyes me though. It is the remakes, the new versions of the old...

Okay, so I did this about the decade, but let's not forget this year! I also added some relevant questions this time. 1.What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before? Ran Cooper's test. 2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I never make any. 3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Lala. 4. Did anyone close to you die? No. 5. What countries did you visit? Estonia, Sweden (15 minutes in Haparanda!), China and Netherlands (Schiphol airport) 6...

I read two books in considerably short time. They were nothing alike, and I won't compare them more than this, but let me just ask a question. Does one have to like a book for it to be good? I know that both of my reads are international best sellers, praised by critics, and I don't have enought fingers to point all my friends who really like these novels. Still, I'm not convinced about their greatness, actually I am surprised by my oppinion. Let me elaborate: The first book was The Thousand...

NOW's new president takes on men behaving badly By DAVID CRARY (AP) – 16 hours ago NEW YORK — Men behaving badly. It wasn't a topic that Terry O'Neill expected to find high on her agenda as new president of the National Organization for Women, but she's tackling it with zest and determination. Elected as NOW's leader in June, O'Neill had plenty on her plate already — notably trying to gauge the impact on women, for good or ill, in the multiple proposals for health care overhaul. Then...

Musta aurinko -

All through my life, one of the very common philosophical and/or religious questions that keeps repeating itself is that of fate. Lately I've been thinking about it, so I thought I'd write down a thought or two. The general idea of fate is that people believe that all or part of the events in our lives are preordained , or determined to happen beforehand, and that the choices we make in some of the crossroads of our lives are in fact so far away from random that they are the only possible ones...
