Corruption is the Cancer that destroys Society through Governments


I do a lot of content consumption on the #Twitter, and only rarely reshare it in the #Fediverse, but this one I am. Seth Abramson, the well-known author, dropped a hell of a thread on Twitter yesterday. I read it this morning. He puts together the longer story of International #Corruption but centered on one of the #USA's biggest mistakes in history, Donald #Trump. November he knew about the pandemic and for "thirty pieces of silver" he sold out the world's people to get dirt on the #... Show more...

Scandinavian countries may top every ranking on human development, but they are a #disaster for the #environment.


Scandinavians have it all. Universal public healthcare and education that is the envy of the world. Reasonable working hours with plenty of paid vacation. They have some of the highest levels of happiness on the planet, and top virtually every ranking of human development.

The #Nordic model stands as a clear and compelling contrast to the neoliberal ideology that has strafed the rest of the industrialised world with inequality, ill health and needless poverty. As an antidote to the most destructive aspects of free-market capitalism, the egalitarian social democracies of #Norway, #Denmark, #... Show more...

We can appreciate the presidents of Spain and Turkey swapping ideas how to repress dissidents, how to deal with protesters and how to muzzle journalists. The Greek new kid on the block gets closer to Merkel to keep bailing out the Greeks banks at the expense of the harrowing suffering of the working class people of Greece, Trump closer to the Royal family despite saying he doesn't know Prince Andrew, who used to spend time in America groping Epstein's lolitas. Merkel and Macron side to side keeping the incendiary flame of neoliberalism and neofascism going and creating the reasonable havoc.... and so on.

Leaked document says fishing surge in international waters poses long-term risks

Iceland has been accused of threatening the long-term sustainability of vital mackerel stocks after unilaterally increasing its catches in the international waters of the north-east Atlantic.

In a damning leaked document agreed at a meeting in London in October, the EU, Norway and the Faroe Islands lambasted Reykjavik’s decision to significantly raise its quota without consultation. Russia and Greenland were also criticised.

‘Fishrot files’ lead to head of Samherji fishing company and Namibian ministers resigning over alleged corruption

Two Namibian government ministers have resigned and the boss of Iceland’s biggest fishing company has stepped aside amid a spiralling scandal over alleged bribes paid to officials in the southern African nation in exchange for trawling rights.

Þorsteinn Már Baldvinsson, the CEO of the Icelandic fishing firm Samherji, and Namibia’s fisheries and justice ministers, Bernhard Esau and Sacky Shanghala, are the first heads to roll following revelations this week of a vast corruption case.

‘Letter to the future’ warns that all glaciers will share fate of Okjökull without urgent action

The first of Iceland’s 400 glaciers to be lost to the climate crisis will be remembered with a memorial plaque – and a sombre warning for the future – to be unveiled by scientists and local people next month.

The former Okjökull glacier, which a century ago covered 15 sq km (5.8 sq miles) of mountainside in western Iceland and measured 50 metres thick, has shrunk to barely 1 sq km of ice less than 15 metres deep and lost its status as a glacier.

Fjadrárgljúfur closed off to protect it from fans after it starred in pop star’s video

With one music video, Justin Bieber has made a pristine Icelandic canyon famous around the world. And that’s the problem.

Icelandic environmental officials have had to close off Fjadrárgljúfur to protect it from the hordes of Bieber fans who are determined to visit the site, which is featured in the video for I’ll Show You. And these fans are not letting a few fences, signs or park rangers keep them away.

Leather-clad group Hatari say this year’s contest, in which they will represent Iceland, is ‘built on a lie’

Nothing titillates the Icelandic bondage and dominance-themed band Hatari more than a glaring contradiction.

On stage, the group, whose name means “Hater”, present a fascist-inspired dystopia of blood-splattered whippings. In person, they are softly spoken and occasionally cheerfully optimistic.

Scientists are warning against new legislation to grow Iceland’s fish farming industry, but industry is pressuring for a go-ahead

A five-fold expansion in open net fish farms that scientists believe could decimate Iceland’s wild salmon stocks is pitting Big Aquaculture against ecologists in the country.

Next month, a parliamentary bill is expected to extend farm licenses from 10 to 16 years, while omitting critics from oversight panels and handing primary monitoring powers to industry.

My mother, Karólína Lárusdóttir, who has died aged 74, was a printmaker and painter originally from Iceland, but who lived most of her life in the UK, mainly in and around Cambridge.

Karólína’s works are evocative of her childhood in Reykjavik, underpinned by the mystic elements of Icelandic culture. Her grandfather, Johannes Josefsson, an Icelandic wrestling champion who worked as a strongman with Barnum and Bailey’s circus and with the escapologist Harry Houdini, founded Hotel Borg, Reykjavik’s first luxury hotel, in 1930. Many of Karólína’s prints and paintings are populated by the hotel’s clients and workers going about their business.

Musicians accused of evading 151m Icelandic krona in tax through incorrect tax returns from 2011 to 2014

Members of the Icelandic band Sigur Rós have been charged with tax evasion, three years after local authorities launched a probe into the avant-garde rock band’s finances.

The indictment, issued by the district prosecutor on Thursday, accuses the musicians of submitting incorrect tax returns from 2011 to 2014, evading a total of 151m Icelandic krona (£945,000).

On WikiLeaks and the investigation against veteran Chelsea Manning


“I am not going to contribute to a process that I feel is dangerous and could potentially place me in a position where I am forced to backtrack on the truth,” she told the paper.

“At the insistence of the clerk, the motion was filed under seal,” said Meltzer-Cohen in an email to The Daily Beast. “Our position is that litigation regarding the enforceability of a subpoena does not implicate grand jury secrecy, and we will move to have it unsealed. Chelsea, as you might expect, wants to bring some transparency to this process and hopes to be able to share the filing soon.”

But the case went nowhere. The Obama administration ultimately decided that prosecuting Assange for accepting and publishing leaked documents would run into First Amendment issues. The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since August 2012, when he breached bail to avoid extradition to Sweden over accusations of sexual assault and rape...

On today's episode of Armchair Apocrypha, Andrew talks about Betty Boop, the black woman who inspired her, the white woman who inspired her, two other black women who may have inspired her, and the corporation who won the lawsuit against the white woman who inspired her. Afterward, Rachael recounts the day that almost all the women in Iceland took a big day off, and the organizer who went on to be the longest serving woman president in the world.
