  • Poland Confident of Completing Gas Link to Norway by 2022

    Poland is confident of meeting a 2022 deadline for completing a new Baltic Sea gas pipeline to Norway,which will connect Poland to Norwegian gas deposits via Denmark and aims to reduce Polish reliance on Russian gas. Construction of the pipeline, with capacity of 10 billion cubic metres per year, is set to begin in spring 2020. Polish state-run gas firm PGNiG buys most of the gas Poland consumes from Russia's Gazprom under a long-term deal set to expire in 2022. Poland does not intend to extend the contract beyond that date. In other attempts to diversify sources of supply, Poland...
  • Russia vows consequences after Norway invites more U.S. Marines

    OSLO (Reuters) - Russia vowed on Thursday to retaliate for a plan by Norway to more than double the number of U.S. Marines stationed there. Oslo announced on Tuesday that it would ask the United States, its NATO ally, to send 700 Marines to train in Norway from 2019, against 330 at present, and said the additional troops would be based closer to the Russian border. "This makes Norway less predictable and could cause growing tensions, triggering an arms race and destabilizing the situation in northern Europe," the Russian Embassy said in a statement on its Facebook page. "We see...

    U.S. President Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in reaching an agreement to work toward de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula. The U.S leader was nominated by two members of Norway’s governing Progress Party, according to state broadcaster NRK. The deadline for this year’s prize passed in January, so this nomination would make him eligible for next year. It is unclear whether he was nominated for this year’s prize. Nominations for the world’s most coveted prize are open to lawmakers, academics and researchers from around the world. The Nobel Committee in Oslo typically receives hundreds...
  • Norway Wants to Double US Marines and Deploy Them Closer to Russia

    Norway will ask the United States to double the number of U.S. troops stationed in the country and deploy them nearer the border with Russia, the government said Tuesday. The announcement came after nine nations along NATO's eastern flank called Friday for the alliance to bolster its presence in their region: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. Oslo said it wants to boost the troop numbers to 700 and station them further north at Setermoen, 420 kilometres (260 miles) from Russia. The U.S. deployment agreement would also be extended from the current six-month renewable periods...
  • Face It, Nordic Countries Aren't Socialist

    Mises Institute ^ | June 8, 2018 | Daniel Lacalle
    One of the most common fallacies of the new populists is to say that their model is the “Nordic” one and that those countries are successful examples of how “socialism works”. When I mentioned it to the Finnish Finance Minister Petteri Orpo at a recent ECR dinner, he could not believe it. Expropriations, massive tax increases, appropriation of savings and subordinating the growth model to political control is what populists defend. The same as Venezuela, which all of them praised — from Bernie Sanders to Owen Jones or Corbyn and Chomsky — until it collapsed. Then they moved on to...
  • Life was good for Stone Age Norwegians along Oslo Fjord

    Southeastern Norway is the most populous part of Norway today. Based on an analysis of more than 150 settlements along Oslo Fjord, the area apparently also appealed to Stone Age people. Eleven thousand years ago at the end of the last ice age, Norway was buried under a thick layer of ice. But it didn't take long for folks to wander their way north as the ice sheet melted away. The first traces of human habitation in Norway date from roughly 9500 BC. Steinar Solheim is an archaeologist at the University of Oslo's Museum of Cultural History who has worked...

    The U.S. Navy has awarded its long-awaited Over-the-Horizon Weapon Systems contract to Raytheon, which had joined together with Norwegian defense contractor Kongsberg to offer the Naval Strike Missile, or NSM. The service sees the weapon as an important anti-ship and land-attack weapon capability for the Littoral Combat Ship and its future frigates, but the selection could also pave the way for adding the missiles to other types of ships and for other services to acquire air- and ground-launched versions. The Pentagon included the fixed-price deal, valued at more than $14.8 million, in its daily contracting announcement notice for May 31,...

    Fewer births and more deaths have resulted in the lowest birth rate in 33 years being registered in Norway for the first three months of 2018. But the population of the country is growing overall as a result of immigration, news agency NTB reports. Net migration to Norway during the first quarter of this year was 5,500, but the net population change caused by births and deaths was just 1,700, according to figures from Statistics Norway (SSB). That compares with 2,400 in 2017 and 3,500 in 2016. The figure for net migration was a result of a total number of...

    Shy Society ^ | 5/20/18
    Independent MEP Janice Atkinson has become the latest high-profile public figure to speak out about “The Great Replacement” which argues that native Brits and Europeans are being systematically replaced through mass, uncontrolled immigration.Writing in the Voice of Europe following an exclusive by Shy Society over an English Heritage training programme excluding white people, the South East England MEP says that when she first read about the theory she thought it was an “over reaction”. But the former UKIP politician has recently changed her mind and is now “absolutely convinced” that The Great Replacement is a concerted effort by globalist elites...

    The Norwegian police said Tuesday they had closed an investigation into Donald Trump's fake Nobel Peace Prize nomination after failing to identify the person behind it. The Norwegian Nobel Institute filed a police report earlier this year after receiving a seemingly fraudulent nomination of the US president for the prestigious prize. Suspicion mounted that the nomination was submitted by a person suspected of committing identity fraud to appear legitimate, as only a select group of individuals -- including members of parliament and government, former laureates and some university professors -- are entitled to propose names.

    Buried deep beneath the sediment of the North Atlantic Ocean lies an ancient, lost landscape with furrows cut by rivers and peaks that once belonged to mountains. Geologists recently discovered this roughly 56-million-year-old landscape using data gathered for oil companies. "It looks for all the world like a map of a bit of a country onshore," said Nicky White, the senior researcher. "It is like an ancient fossil landscape preserved 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) beneath the seabed." So far, the data have revealed a landscape about 3,861 square miles (10,000 square km) west of the Orkney-Shetland Islands that stretched above...

    The search consists of a 65-man vessel Seabed Constructor equipped geared to scouring the depths of the Indian Ocean for any sight of plane debris from the MH370 aircraft. But, four years after the plane went missing, the latest searches through the Indian Ocean has revealed nothing -- after 16,000sq km of the planned 25,000sq km area was combed through. The search location was pinpointed by an Australian Oceanographer as the most likely spot the plane would be. The Malaysian government paid Ocean Infinity $20 million for 5,000 square km of a successful search, $30 million for 15,000 square km,...

    Police in a number of Norwegian districts will be given electroshock weapons as part of a trial from next year. The weapons will be used in the Oslo, Øst, Sørvest and Troms police districts, NRK reports. The National Police Directorate began looking into the possibility of using the weapon type last year and has now decided to implement the trial in the four districts from January 1st, 2019, according to the report. Similar weapons are already used by police in the United States, United Kingdom and Finland. […] Concern over the weapon type, which can fire a charge of 50,000...
  • Trump's revenge: US crude oil floods European markets in blow to OPEC and Russia

    THE United States is flooding the European markets with record amounts crude oil as US producers seize on Russia and the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) pact to cut output resulting in soaring oil prices. US crude oil is seen as the cheaper option as the OPEC and Russia pact begins to bite after agreeing jointly to oil output jointly by 1.8million barrels per day (bpd) help rebalance the market and to help elevate the benchmark Brent prices. Now, the relatively high prices brought about by that pact, coupled with surging US output, are making it harder to...
  • Medieval Cheater’s Dice With Double Fours and Fives Found in Norway

    Six-sided dice date back nearly 5,000 years to ancient Persia, so finding 600-year-old dice in Norway isn’t anything special. But this recently discovered dice—with its conspicuously absent one-side and two-side—is unique, pointing to some Medieval-era shenanigans. This cheater’s dice was discovered at a dig in Bergen, Norway by archaeologists from the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU). The researchers are currently excavating the remains of a wooden street from the medieval Vågsbunnen district, which dates back to the 15th century. Back then, it was a densely populated area, filled with pubs and inns. It’s very likely that games—particularly those...

    A faulty warning siren sparked fears of a late-night Russian invasion in a sleepy Norwegian town just miles from the border. Frightened locals called the police when the Civil Defence alarm went off in Vadso. Anxious residents feared a war had broken out when the wailing siren sparked panic just before midnight on Wednesday, the local police force revealed. Russian troops weren't flooding across the border, but it remained unclear what caused the alarm to go off. Vadso residents can see Russia in the distance when they look across the Varangerfjord, the easternmost fjord in Russia, within the Arctic Circle.
  • In Footprints on Scotland’s Isle of Skye, Signs of a Dinosaur Playground

    Gigantic dinosaurs frolicked and splashed some 170 million years ago in the lagoons of what is now Scotland. That’s what a team of paleontologists has determined after discovering dozens of jumbo-sized footprints belonging to long-necked sauropods on the Isle of Skye. Mixed with the herbivores’ tracks were a few clawed impressions left behind by two-legged meat-eaters known as theropods. The footprints present a snapshot of life during an important period in dinosaur history that has yielded relatively few fossil remains. In the mid-Jurassic, sauropods necks grew longer and the first birds were figuring out flight.Identifying two types of footprints in...
