How many sportspersons have dated movie stars! How many movie stars have married industrialists! How many industrialists have family alliances with politicians! Sachin Tendulkar is nominated to the Parliament, his century is felicitated by the Ambanis, and his family wedding will be attended by the Bachhans. When Sharukh Khan is stopped at the US airport, when he has a brawl at the cricket stadium, when he plays loud music on his birthday - they're all headlines. Don’t get me started about...

My friend sent me this and I found it both amusing and nostalgic. I shortened it to include only the computer companies which I had a personal interest and of course DEC , my previous employer: Image via Wikipedia If IBM made toasters... They would want one big toaster where people bring bread to be submitted for overnight toasting. IBM would claim a worldwide market for five, maybe six toasters. Image via Wikipedia If Microsoft made toasters... Every time you bought a loaf of bread, you would...

Lumi leijuu hiljakseen ikkunan takana. Olen siirtynyt talvitakkiin. Pää ei pysy kasassa, mutta olen silti yrittänyt lukea yhtä opintoihin liittyvää kirjaa, The Cultural Politics of Emotion (2004). Sara Ahmed, viitaten S. Freudiin ja M. Kleiniin, sivulla 125: For whilst love may be crucial to the pursuit of happiness, love also makes the subject vulnerable, exposed to, and dependent upon another, who in ‘not being myself’, threatens to take away the possibility of love. Love then...

Velhametsä -

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...

So last century * -

So some of you may have noticed I've been missing from the blogosphere for a while now... the reason being I was pre-occupied with completing my bachelor of arts degree. I am happy to report that I have finished and am now free to do as I please! As I mentioned in a previous post, for my Final Major Project (FMP) I chose to use The Collector by John Fowles as my text and focused on the connection between the study of entomology and serial killer behaviour made in the book. As interested as I am...

What is your name? My name? I'm Minea Lintunen. And yes, I know what the surname means. 'Little bird.' Look at me! Do you see anything little about me? No, I don't. So you're not little. What are you, physically? I'm large. I'm huge. Oh, not fat, not that. I'm tall. I'm broad. I got muscles. The guy who said women can't grow enormous muscles by exercising was dead wrong. But your muscles are not that big. Oh yeah? Look at these damned biceps ! They're impressive. But I've seen bigger, you know...

Inspired by Sofia's recent posts The Girl Next Door Paradox and The Slut Paradox  on her blog, I wanted to write about something I've been thinking about a lot lately. It's about the nice guys versus the bad guys conversation that's floating back and forth between the guys and the girls. See now days the nice guys go around the internet telling how they used to be good until some girl broke their poor little heart and by all means forced them to turn into these new found assholes that hurt...

A few people have asked about my whereabouts, and I thought I would drop in and tell that I'm fine. Still knitting, but here's the thing: I don't live and breath knitting anymore. I don't really know what happened, but suddenly I just noticed that I could live without checking the knit blogs and Ravelry every night. I could watch tv without knitting. I could even knit something and give it away without taking photos of it. I feel… free. :-D So I don't think I'm gonna blog anymore. I've used...

Today I heard the first seagulls - winter will be over soon! Here are, however, some pictures from last week when it still was very much winter. And here I am aswell! Slowly returning as the light slowly increases here on these latitudes. Like a Moomin troll I have hibernated from the blogosphere during the darkest months. (I always liked the Moomin winter book the best -well that one, and the one with the flood and the drifting heater - how he, against his nature, wakes up one winter and finds...

Until ten years ago we used to screen nitrate regularly in Finland. We even had extended retrospectives mostly based on nitrate prints, such as a retrospective of the director Ilmari Unho, one of the house directors of the Suomi-Filmi company. Also our Valentin Vaala retrospective was largely based on nitrate. When films are image-driven, based on a painterly vision, "painting with light", to quote the title of the book by John Alton, it is essential to be able to refer to first generation...

Nyt joku kesäihminen tietenkin vetää herneet nenäänsä mutta minä vain kerta kaikkiaan rakastan lunta ja talvea ja kaikkea ihanaa mitä siihen liittyy. Mitä joulukaan olisi ilman lunta?

Finished reading Mein Kampf (an English translation of it to be exact, not the one filled with notes). There's been a lot of debate among historians as to whether Hitler's policies once he became chancellor followed a careful plan or whether those policies (such as the Holocaust) emerged more spontaneously, as a reaction to changing circumstances. Some Nazi sympathizers even claim Hitler had no choice but to do what he did because of the hostility of his foreign adversaries. To me it's quite...

FO: Clapotis Yarn: Artesano Hummingbird, 300g Needles: 4mm For pictures of me wearing it, see the project page In knitting this Clapotis I also realised something about what guides me in choosing projects. Although knitting is supposedly for my own entertainment only, I still find myself considering expectations and norms. We all fall for this sometimes -or I at least would like to think that I am not the only one who might borrow the latest prize winner from the library just because it's a...

I've got many interesting e-mails from all around the world and it was not easy to decide which subject I should discuss. The reason I chose this topic was the urgency. The writer told me that he has serious problems trying to figure out what is this mysterious Nobel Prize all the newspapers are writing about. That is why I´ll give the complete information I have about the Nobel prize. THE NOBEL PRIZE The Nobel Foundation was established in 1900. The first 42 years the name of the foundation...

The first day of the new year! I was lucky to get to spend the first hour with my boyfriend. Got to meet his sister, too. We looked at their baby pictures. It was strange to see how, based on the pics, his childhood looked very similar to mine. At the same time it was shocking to see how different they were from today's kids' childhood. We wore whatever, played whatever, didn't even know the concept of "being cool". Today a friend of mine arranged a scene. On the phone, but still. She says...

The Sufferfest provides the time-crunched cyclist structured workouts, and integrated training plans for indoor riding. Motivational video footage from grand tours and other races make it feel you're racing with others.

Most of the exercises are short (30-60 minutes) and have a very detailed prescription. The 4DP or...

Unfortunately this doesn't imply at my house... (see the next challenge :P) 2. Smell: The best scent is clean laundry (dried outside). I like many scents too and would like to light scented candles everyday, also incences, but the rest of the family don't enjoy them. Todhe scent ofay I was enjoying the scent...

In the course of times, one finds oneself with a leftover collection of bike parts: parts from various projects, or from crashed frames, or just maybe having entered the house looking for shelter during the cold winter months. As the sum is usually bigger than its parts, I started to look for the missing link – the frame. First, it seemed that a decent second hand road frame would cost me 700-800 euro. Much too much for a bike that is essentially gratis. Then I encountered Matti who was...

Question: Why hasn´t there been any new Q&A´s during the past month? Answer: The problem is that at the moment most of the problems in this world are solved. I have spent the last month trying to create more problems so that the demand for this type of encyclopedia would remain. Other option would be to expand this to other galaxies which still have unsolved problems. I haven´t decided which road I will follow. Fortunately, I can guarantee that the problem solving continues.
