    It was in the news that her back has not been healed in such a way that training as a competitive skate could be possible. She also got accepted into university.

    A lot of the Finns in Sweden moved there during the '60s and '70s so they are probably older than the other foreign-born. Taking into consideration that there have been elderly care homes where they did not get the sick people to the hospital and the only care was Morfin, not even oxygen if you...

    I do not know what data you have, but according to Dagens Nyheter (a daily newspaper in Sweden ) statistics for April show that overall mortality is clearly higher than what is normal. In April the averige is 250/day in the country totally, now it is 350/day. Usually the numbers go down when the...

    Things I’m sick of tbh.....

    A good question. Their statistics for the total amount of deaths (not only from *******) at this time a year is a lot higher than last years. IIRC higher than never earlier. In Finland statistics at the moment show that the total amount is less than usual at this time. They are not testing in...

    I have relatives and friends, who have relatives of Finnish origin living in Stockholm (since the mid-'70s). They all say that it is not possible to get tested. There is nowhere to go unless you are really ill. So they have probably a lot of undiagnosed cases and even deaths.

    Best ever moisturizer. Saline water. I have always in winter (when my hands are dry) a glass jar on the kitchen table with saline water. One litre jar of cold tap water and two handfuls of ordinary sea salt. Damp a corner of a clean towel in it and wipe my hands or pour the solute on the back of...

    Skaters report abusive training environments

    Agree. My initial point was that the number of parents signing the letter was not big, but small, under the circumstances.

    Skaters report abusive training environments

    The club has 10 synchro teams, adult teams included. The elite Senior and Junior teams, those who take part in WCs and international competitions, are 19+22 skaters, which means about 82 parents. (I doubt there are single parents who can afford skating of their children, but there might be some...

    Skaters report abusive training environments

    I am sorry, I should not have said that. But as they mentioned in the news it was going on a long time. The coach in question is still denying she did anything wrong and has a lawyer to defend herself. IMO such sports were there are not measurable selection criteria (and even where there are)...

    Skaters report abusive training environments

    Now it is all over in the news and the minister responsible for culture and sports commented that she cannot see how the coach could continue in her work, or something like that, writing from memory. I think Kiira made the difference, taking up the matter. The club was trying to just blame the...
