Wow, what to say. She's certainly an impressive figure, with a long list of achievements. This will also add another torch to the debate over aging US politicians.
I live in Northern Norway, and I think this railroad is a ridiculous project that should be canned. 200 billion NOK is just too damn expensive.
But I have a different suggestion: A railway south from Tromsø (largest city in the region), through Bardufoss and Setermoen (important military bases), then up the valley towards Sweden, connecting to Ofotbanen by the western bank of Torneträsk. It would cost a fraction of the suggested Nordnorgebanen with most of the benefits, and would disturb less pristine nature.
Damn. I've been a Premium Lite subscriber for a while now. Premium is too expensive, so I won't go for that. Even Lite is a bit on the pricey side, costing me twice as much as I pay for Nebula!
Maybe I'll look into setting up a Pi-hole or something similar.
Another small breakthrough, still a long way to go.
We've had our own issues with military hardware here in Norway, but none at this scale to my knowledge. This article gives good insight into how something like this can happen, and be allowed to continue unfolding.
In addition to general wage increases, the union is seeking restoration of cost-of-living pay raises, an end to varying tiers of wages for factory jobs, a 32-hour week with 40 hours of pay, the restoration of traditional defined-benefit pensions for new hires who now receive only 401(k)-style retirement plans, pension increases for retirees and other items.
Tall demands. I wish them the best of luck!
I rarely agree with him politically, but he's one of very few high-profile Republicans with some integrity left, so I'll be sad to see him go. Then again, I didn't realise how old he's getting.
Maybe a better article than the first I posted about the topic. This includes some clarifications from Unity.
I'm getting some Twitter flashbacks. A company in dire financial straits has to make changes fast, so they don't have time to discuss with their users or give them time to adjust. This article raises several serious issues that will have to be worked out somehow.
This probably won't lead to huge changes for most citizens, but for someone who cares about labour rights, it's sad to see the continued attrition of the Labour Party.
Welcome back Luxembourg! I'm excited to see what they come up with. :-)
"Illegal gold mining gangs flying jetpacks" was not on my 2023 news bingo card. What a time to be alive.
I'll have to keep an eye out for the next couple weeks. Near the Moon and Venus.
