The list could be made longer. And will probably be made longer by future decisions. For instance: Nordstream 2 will probably never open. On the contrary, every country that today is dependent on Russian gas is likely to scramble to replace it, sooner rather than later.
To sum up, as long as Putin is in power, the west, and especially the Russians, will have to adjust to the new reality of a Cold War 2.
Sweden and Great Britain has been at war. For two years! I did not know that. But since not a single shot was fired and trade continued between the countries (and Sweden even let their “enemy” “occupy” an island so that the trade could continue), this is perhaps not surprising.
“Atrakta erbjuder tjänster inom revision, redovisning och rådgivning. Tjänsterna har ett strategiskt fokus med sikte på kundens önskade läge. Vi samverkar, eller samskapar som vi säger, med andra aktörer när det krävs för att nå bästa kundupplevelsen. Vi särskiljer oss även i det praktiska kundarbetet och står för ett inkluderande ledarskap och medarbetarskap. Ett annat särdrag är att vinst inte är en drivkraft för oss utan får bli en effekt av kundupplevelsen.”
Vem de definierar som kunden känns i sammanhanget inte helt oviktigt.
I guess this is normal, since no one reports it as extraordinary. Perhaps with the exception that one of the lava flows entered a city and another has become a tourist attraction. Surely, that cannot happen “all the time”.
“Not wishing to be left behind by Hank Azaria, I would like to apologise on behalf on Monty Python for all the many sketches we did making fun of white English people, […] We’re sorry for any distress we may have caused” (John Cleese).
+ The mortality rate of Covid-19 is 5 times lower than that of SARS
+ For most people it is no worse than a common flu
+ It seems like only the elderly and especially those who suffer from a previous health condition is at risk
+ The virus is only spreading after a person has become ill and not during the incubation period
– No one is immune to the virus (Of course – because, this is what the main problem is)
– A vaccine will take at least a year to develop”
Well, a year later we have learned a lot. Some “bad news” turned out not to be as bad as we feared. For instance, the vaccin took less than a year to develop. But other things have had to be added to the list. We have learned that not “only the elderly and especially those who suffer from a previous health condition is at risk”, although those are most at risk, of course. Most notable in my view, howevere: Long Covid. I have had Covid but “no worse than a common flu” and without any lingering problem. For that I am very grateful.
“In the 1400s, craftsmen in the city-state of Venice traded with people throughout Asia. The beads might have traveled in a horse-drawn cart along the Silk Road eastward toward China. From there, “these early Venetian beads found their way into the aboriginal hinterlands, with some moving to the Russian Far East,” the authors wrote in their recent paper.
After that great journey, a trader may have tucked the beads into his kayak on the western shore of the Bering Sea. He then dipped his paddle and made passage to the New World, today’s Alaska. The crossing of Bering Strait at its narrowest is about 52 miles of open ocean.”
