It's been quite stormy here for the last day or so, and apparently three cows decided to take the bus home last night rather than walk in the rain. 😁

Apparently, they had escaped in the bad weather, but the owner got them all home safe.

Saw an interesting #infographic from #CNN regarding top countries providing #military aid to #Ukraine. I'm not surprised by the top 3 (US, Germany, UK), but I am surprised by the fourth and fifth - #Norway and #Denmark - outstripping #Poland for whom #Russian forces are an imminent threat. I'm also a bit surprised to see #France at the bottom of the list. I'd love to hear from anyone who has insight into why Norway and Denmark rank so high and France so low!

Visiting the Norwegian city of Bergen, I cycled along a stunning 3-km bike path blasted through a mountain.

It's the longest bike tunnel in the world -- and a centerpiece of Bergen's plans to reduce driving.

I wrote about it in Bloomberg CityLab.

Can #AI empower #Indigenous people?

This short video about the #Fosen case was generated by ai.invideo.io after prompts by a Sámi user, who also fact-checked the content of the script before publication.

AI quickly gave this #landback issue in #Norway a pretty well-formulated text, an Old White Professor-type voice to present it, and some stock photos to illustrate it.

What are the benefits? What are the drawbacks? What do you think?

Not having a degree is apparently a serious concern for the Norwegian government, to the extent that the company does not want to pay for the visa application. If anyone in #Norway has experience with UDI, I'm all ears for ideas! I am confident that I can demonstrate my knowledge — I spoke at a major conference just last week. But not having a degree and/or six years of experience seems to be an issue 😔

In the foreground we see both thick and thin black naked branches on a tree leaning outwards towards a pond. Some bright green leaves on the edges up front. A some 10 - 20 meters over on the other side, a rock face, bathed in sun, rises up from the water. It is reflected in the water and it is difficult to see where the boundary is between water and rock.

@deirdresm Micro-review: "Troll" (2022) is a smartly written, well acted, often impishly funny, and genuinely Norwegian answer to the hoary Godzilla / King Kong monster-film genre -- that ought to be more widely noticed than it's been so far.

Yes, the plot's derivative: It contains what's stated on the tin. But it's great fun. (Netflixable. https://www.netflix.com/title/81245455)

The 2023 Norwegian local election is over. The Labour party continues its tailspin, and seems as oblivious to why their strategy is failing as ever. As a consequence, the right steams ahead with their project to undermine our key social institutions by turning them into for-profit lesser alternatives.

The Socialist Left is the only party on the left to make any gains, so I'm happy with that at least. We also did well locally in my area, retaining our 2 seats on the council.

Day 7: On a true #FensterFriday we woke up with blue skies yet again. We said goodbye to our Norwegian companion for the evening and started our descent.

The route followed multiple lakes and had some tricky parts (especially with larger backpacks). We tried to find a good lunch spot, but the wind picked up big time and there was not much to shelter behind.

In the late afternoon we arrived at our pick-up point and were driven to the hotel in Valldal again. The trip is not over yet however. There is a very nice dessert planned for tomorrow. The question is however, if I can join, as my back problems are making themselves known again.

Day 6: We leave the large hut complex, which we only shared with 3 other people, and start our hike to the next valley, with yet another character. A last view back into the green valley before we hike into a rock and snow valley.

The sun is still shining, but because of the wind over the snow fields, it is becoming cold. Shorts and t-shirts are replaced with long trousers, windjackets and beanies.

We cross lots of snowfields before we arrive at the Danskehytta ("Danish hut"). There is only one other person, who we invite to join us for Dutch pancakes.

The difference in the two valleys so close together was remarkable.
