Loviisan rauhanfoorumi -

Loviisa Peace Forum Aug 3rd 2019 By Erkki Tuomioja It is an open question whether we still have the time to put into effect a managed global transition to sustainable development, even if started the task immediately. Unsustainable development as a threat to peace and stability is not new. Even the Pentagon has acknowledged this, […]

Sarah Sharp is a member of a very rare group. She's a Linux kernel hacker. Even among that group, she's unique - not because of her gender (though that probably is distinctive in many of the group's social gatherings), but because she's brave enough to demand civil behavior  from the leaders of the community. I applaud her for that. Now, I have immense respect for Linus Torvalds and his crew. I've been a direct beneficiary of Linux in both professional and personal contexts for soon to be two...

Someone recently asked me, whether he should do a limited-market test launch for a product he knows isn't finished yet, in order to learn more from actual users. A worthy goal, of course. Perhaps you're considering the same thing. I have, many times. Before you decide either way, consider the following: What do you expect to learn? If you need to see people using your product, throwing it on the App Store won't help you achieve that objective. Better you go a nearby meetup of people you'd like...

I had written a tentative list of things I might automatically continue doing, or at least think of doing even after leaving Senegal. When I return to Finland, I might continue to... … greet other passenger in public transport vehicles with a "salaam aleykum" ... hand over the money for the bus ticket to other passengers who will pass it on until the cashier … smile and say hello to strangers on the street … buy an alcoholic drink whenever I see one, being afraid that it might take a...

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...

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. I am engulfed in a state of shock...

Newsweek reports that the US government is debating the "Salvador option" in Iraq: creating death squads in the style of El Salvador and other US client states in Latin America. This would be a logical development. The occupation is failing ever more rapidly, and at this point it seems unlikely that conventional military force can defeat the Iraqi resistance. The great foreign policy successes of the US have not been in colonial war as in Vietnam, but in neo-colonial state terror as in Latin...

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!

Few days ago my uncle was asking me about how to read bangla web pages in his Android tablet. While I was explaining things to him, I thought I should share this information in case it helps someone else. First of all, it's quite interesting that even though this Android stock browser and Google Chrome desktop browser are both 'browsers', and came out of the same company, there is little /no communication between these the two development teams! So rendering stuffs are not really the same in...

Man, i’m very disappointed today. Ever since I first saw the game Spore advertised I have been anxiously awaiting its release. The pre-release advertisements looked absolutely deadly. The problem is development took so bloody long I totally forgot about the game and missed its official release earlier this month. I just remembered it this morning [...]

Vuonna 2000 sovittiin YK:n vuosituhattavoitteista (Millennium Development Goals, MDGs). Niissä asetettiin kahdeksan tavoitetta, joilla haluttiin saavuttaa parempi maailma vuoteen 2015 mennessä: esim äärimmäisen köyhyyden ja nälän puolittaminen, lapsikuolleisuuden vähentäminen, ympäristön kestävän kehityksen turvaaminen jne. Osa näistä vuosituhattavoitteista tullaan saavuttamaan, osassa jäädään paljon jälkeen. Vuosi 2015 on pian, entä sen jälkeen? YK:n RIO+20 prosessissa...

Englantia tavaavalle Internetin maailma on pullollaan mielenkiintoisia linkkejä koskien pieniä kouluja, lähikouluja, koulutaisteluita, koulukeskusteluja ja erilaisia koulutukseen liittyviä aatteellisia organisaatioita. Maailman merillä on huomioitava se, että esimerkiksi amerikkalaisilla sivustoilla lähestymistapa koulukysymyksiin on hieman erilainen kuin meillä täällä Suomessa. Pääosaa keskusteluissa näyttelevät eri koulujen oppimistulosten (koulukohtaisten pisteiden ja...

No, hemmetti. Nyt tiedän, mitä tapahtuu, kun taitava ja omistautunut musikaaliohjaaja-koreografi saa huippumenestyksen aallonharjalla käyttöönsä rajattoman budjetin. Syntyy niin typerryttäviä musiikkinumeroita, että katsoja saa rullata leukansa ylös lattialta. Pisteet: 8 (IMDB) * * * * (Movielens) Olin Rotten Tomatoesin yllättävän korkeista kriitikkoarvosanoista päätellyt, ettei tämä leffa ehkä ole kokonaan paska.

Even at this day and age when climate change is an accepted fact in the scientific community and the world at large, resistance seems to prevail. Climate change has been continuously declared the most serious challenge mankind is facing, surpassing the likes of the current financial meltdown and global terrorism. Possible consequences include drastic rise of sea levels, massive flooding, increased turbulence in climate and temperatures (look at hurricane Katrina or El Niño), and increased...

Antti Alanen: Film Diary -

Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) and Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) at Musso & Frank Grill. In his book Hollywood from Vietnam to Reagan Robin Wood analyzed some of the greatest films of the period, such as Taxi Driver and Deer Hunter, as "incoherent texts". To him their greatness was based on their incoherence. Quentin Tarantino's meta-cinematic, pop art approach represents a concept of film experience that is completely different from 1970s Hollywood. He broke the...

Today is going to be just meager commentary on certain interesting news items with no real snark directed at the paper itself. I know, disappointing, isn't it. But even I must rest sometimes. The latest fad with regard to future development of the town seems to be floating houses, planned on the mouth of the river running through the town. Both the planned areas seem to be meant for the more wealthy folk, which appaears to be the case with most new developments. Fancy buildings put up with...

For some reason I've today became intrigued by the character of Carmen and the aria Habanera by Bizet. I can't even remember what originally prompted me to look up the music and the text, it was one of those small unmemorable whims with unexpected consequences. I knew little of the opera and the character it's named after, I simply had a vague idea that Carmen was widely considered a tragic heroine and the play a romantic love story. Now, after familiarising myself with the synopsis and...

Sukupuolten tasa-arvo on pysyvä osa yhteiskunnallista keskustelua – ainakin meillä Suomessa se tuntuu yltävän otsikoihin viikoittain. Milloin puhutaan kenenkin kokemasta väkivallasta, milloin naisten eurosta (kuulemma 80 senttiä), milloin miesten vuosista (ilmeisesti 11 kuukautta). Eikö olisi kätevää, jos kaiken tämän voisi tiivistää yhteen elämänlaadun mittariin, ja vain todeta yksioikoisesti jotain tasa-arvon toteutumisesta sukupuolten välillä? Jos vain olisi sopiva...

There’s been some talk about how Nagron came about really quickly, that you don’t really get to see how or when or why they fall in love. That it’s all a bit fast and sudden and whereas everyone is happy it’s there, it’s not very grounded. I disagree. I saw it coming with bells on. And practically held my breath all the way through to the first kiss. And then to the second one. And now holding my breath for next episode where I hope to see some more loving. But as I am an...

A small group sets to investigate this mystery and to find one woman's missing sister. During their investigation, they find an...

I've been feeling for a while now that I could begin writing about books again, so what better way to start than to comment on the best reads of 2014. I'm not going to do any numbered listing, just comment on the most memorable reads with some silly categories. Best YA Janni Lee Simner's Bones of Faerie (reread) and Faerie Winter Set in a postacopalyptic world where a war between humans and faerie damaged both worlds, and left wild magic among humans. A young girl set out to find her mother...

The report found that the United States and Japan have both fallen in relative technological ranking because of the dramatic rise of China and other nations like South Korea and Singapore.

Continuous Professional Development, eli jatkuva ammatillinen kehittyminen. Sanomattakin lienee selvää, että asiavideoita YouTubesta on turha etsiä: ennemminkin hakusanalla löytää erilaisten verkko-opistojen mainosvideoita..
