It's been heard in the global slowdown that it wouldn't have happened if women were in control. In Norway they've had a year to prove that they're the better managers. That's because since 2008 there's been a binding quota for women on corporate supervisory boards in Norway. It's a sign that the government is serious about equality for women. At first companies had to search hard and quickly train the right candidates for the job. If companies don't meet their quotas,they may have to pay fines.
Wage transparency is a strange concept for most of us: not so in some of the Nordic countries. And while Norway, Sweden and Finland differ in exactly the amount of access they give the public, fundamentally your tax return would be public knowledge there. So how does it affect the world? And is it a good idea? Let's look at the science and find out.

OSLO, NORWAY — Researchers in Norway have made a breakthrough in an animal cognition study, using symbols to help horses communicate their level of comfort to humans. In the study published in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science, 23 horses were put through a range of hot, cold, and warm temperatures, and given three options to select from based on what they were experiencing. If the horses nudged the board with the horizontal line, they were communicating they felt cold and were asking for their blanket to be applied. If the horses nudged the board with the vertical line, they were communicating they felt hot and were asking for their blanket to be removed. If the horses nudged a board with no symbol on it, they were communicating they felt fine as is. Horses were given a carr...

There are several St Olav Ways and they all lead to the shrine of St Olav in Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim. Taken together, the pilgrimage routes, which crisscross Scandinavia, are five thousand kilometers in length. St Olav was a king of Norway a thousand years ago who did much to Christianize the country. In the wake of the Reformation, pilgrimages to Trondheim in what was now a mainly Protestant country ceased, as they were considered a Catholic activity. Nowadays, more and more people, Norwegians and foreign visitors, are walking the trails. Some say it is a way to experience God, nature and themselves in a new way.
Russian warplanes have recently been seen conducting maneuvers on the edges of NATO airspace. In one case they were intercepted by Norwegian and British jets. Relations are chilly along the 196-kilometer-long land border between Norway and Russia. While Norwegian border guards are trying to take a business-as-usual approach, communications with the Russian side have been at a low since the crisis over Ukraine began.

Day 3 at Snellingen. After jacking by eye yesterday, I have taken an instrument to measure the level and removed some of the rotten timbers. I try some repairs on equipment, and start work making new materials to repair the walls.
