    On November 14, Tesla officially unveiled its Model 3 sedan in Europe and began inviting customers on the Old Continent to place their orders for the most affordable vehicle in the company's lineup of all electric cars... left-hand-drive versions of the Model 3 are expected to be available in Europe in the first half of 2019 with right-hand-drive versions coming available in the second half of next year. That's good news, but what is really exciting for many living there is that those European-spec Model 3s will come equipped with a CCS charging port, giving Model 3 drivers many more...

    Radar images and the audio log show that the frigate KNM "Helge Ingstad" kept high speed and steered towards the tanker "Sola TS", despite repeated warnings that they were going to collide. At 04.02 Thursday morning it goes wrong outside Stureterminalen in Hjeltefjorden. At around 17 knots the frigate KNM "Helge Ingstad" straight into the front of the 250 meter long tanker "Sola TS". Before the collision was a fact, the heavily loaded tanker asked the warship to swing away repeatedly. It shows the radar signals and the audio log VG has gained access to. The consequence is that the...

    The U.S. Navy expects one of its officers to be questioned as part of an investigation into the collision of a Norwegian warship and a commercial oil tanker this month in one of the Scandinavian nation’s fjords. The American officer, who has not been identified, was onboard the Norwegian navy frigate as part of a military personnel exchange, according to U.S. and Norwegian officials. The sailor’s role on the ship remains unclear. The Nov. 8 incident ultimately sank the 439-foot Norwegian warship and left several people injured. Norwegian naval officers beached the vessel — the KNM Helge Ingstad — in...

    Nordic prisons visited by a US Correctional Officer James Conway shakes his head in disbelief, as he walks through the institution they call ''prison.'' Finnish Broadcasting, YLE, has made a documentary series called "Norden", where focus is on various aspects of society in Scandinavia. In this episode, former correctional officer, James Conway, from the notorious US prison Attica, has been brought in to have a look at the nordic prison system. During a one week filming trip with The Finnish Broadcasting Company, he visited different kinds of correctional institutions in Finland and Sweden, but the Norwegian ultra liberal regime was...

    Returning from the NATO Trident Juncture strategic exercise, a Norwegian frigate collided with a tanker. Many are speculating that gender politics sunk the vessel. The collision with the KNM Helge Ingstad left a big enough hole in the starboard side of the frigate for the warship to take on water. The crew has been forced to abandon the vessel, The Barents Observer reported. On Tuesday morning, most of the navy ship was already under water. The warship, one of Norway’s five top modern frigates.. a mystery why the well-equipped warship couldn’t avoid colliding with the 250 meters long oil tanker...

    It may be the last place you'd expect to find corals -- up to 6,000 m (20,000 ft) below the ocean's surface, where the water is icy cold and the light dim or absent. Yet believe it or not, lush coral gardens thrive here. In fact, scientists have discovered nearly as many species of deep-sea corals (also known as cold-water corals) as shallow-water species... deep-sea corals don't need sunlight. They obtain the energy and nutrients they need to survive by trapping tiny organisms in passing currents... living even in waters as cold as -1ºC (30.2ºF)... occur in the waters of...

    On FBN (Maria Bartiromo Morning Show), the business panel outlined the clever moves made by POTUS, Donald J. Trump to push the Saudi's to lower oil prices as punishment for their "murder incident in Turkey". As a result of this artful move, Trump forced the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians to follow suit...and low and behold the American nation now has much lower (10-20 dollars a barrel lower) oil prices for the "Holiday Season"!!! Shucks it's like another healthy tax cut for the American taxpayer during the Holiday Season!!! Of course the "Fake News Media" has nary a clue and...

    Thousands of protesters demonstrated in Norwegian cities on Saturday against restricting women’s access to abortion, the subject of talks between the ruling minority coalition and a small party seeking to join the government. In Norway’s capital Oslo, the demonstrators, some pushing children in strollers, marched through the city center carrying banners with slogans such as “My body my right” and “Defend abortion”. “The new law that’s proposed is limiting women’s rights,” said Ine Lund, a 22-year-old criminology student. “I feel it should be up to the woman to choose.” When the Christian Democrats opened talks on teaming up with the...

    Founded in 2001, Oslo-based Human Rights Service (HRS) has been instrumental in supplying useful and illuminating research about the scale, nature, and social and economic impact of immigration into Norway. Its recommendations have resulted in important policy changes, its website is very widely read by Norwegians who are skeptical about Islam, and the latest book by its information officer, Hege Storhaug (just out in English as Islam: Europe Invaded, America Warned), was a massive bestseller. In the U.S., a think tank like HRS would be funded by corporate donors and philanthropists, but, in accordance with Scandinavian practice, it gets its...

    A Norwegian warship was heavily damaged in a collision with a Maltese oil tanker in the North Sea off the coast of Norway. According to Norwegian media reports Thursday, the frigate is in danger of sinking after sustaining heavy damage. The oil tanker is reportedly undamaged. Several reports confirmed that all 137 crew on the navy ship were evacuated but seven have been treated for minor injuries. "The armed forces is now reviewing all the means available in the region to assist the KNM Helge Ingstad (the damaged warship)," Lieutenant Colonel Ivar Moen told AFP. According to the website Marine...

    The number of flights being taken by the average person is increasing dramatically and the arrival of LCCs mean flying is more affordable for more people. Between 2005 and 2018 global passenger numbers more than doubled from around two billion to four billion and forecasts suggest that it could double again over the next 20 years. Is this growth manageable? One Norwegian politician believes that a cap should be placed on travellers, a seemingly impractical suggestion, but one that is sure to have support. Summary: As global air travel demand continues to rise, one Norwegian politician recommends a cap of...

    The Secretary-General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, says the Defence Alliance was informed last week about the Russian missile test off the Møre Coast. – "Russia has a significant presence in the High North, even close to Norway. They exercise large forces, and they do so regularly. This is a reported exercise from the Russian side, and we note that they will practice, as they have done several times before, in the same area", Stoltenberg tells NTB on the flight to the Trident Juncture exercise in Norway. He assumes that Russia will behave professionally and properly and avoid dangerous situations. –"...

    OSLO - The leader of a daring World War Two raid to thwart Nazi Germany's nuclear ambitions has died aged 99, Norwegian government officials said on Sunday. Joachim Roenneberg, serving behind enemy lines in his native Norway during the German occupation, in 1943 blew up a plant producing heavy water, or D2O, a hydrogen-rich substance that was key to the later development of atomic bombs. Picked by Britain's war-time Special Operations Executive to lead the raid when he was only 23 years old, Roenneberg was the youngest member of Operation Gunnerside, which penetrated and destroyed key parts of the heavily...

The Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU) said that the archaeologists discovered the anomaly using radar scans of an area in Østfold County. The ship seems to be about 66 feet (20 meters) long and buried about 1.6 feet (50 centimeters) beneath the ground, they said in a statement.

    Just out on Netflix, Paul Greengrass's new film, 22 July, takes its title from the date in 2011 on which a lone maniac named Anders Behring Breivik murdered seventy-seven people in Norway. But only the first third or so of the movie covers the actual events of that date – the massive explosion Breivik set off in a parked panel truck outside the major government building in Oslo, killing eight, and the shootings he then carried out at the ruling Labor Party's annual summer youth camp on the nearby island of Utøya, which took sixty-nine lives. The second third of...

    A Nazi submarine described as an 'underwater Chernobyl' is being sunk into sand to stop deadly chemicals leaking into the sea and the surrounding bed. The wreckage of the German U-boat was left with 1,800 canisters of toxic mercury seeping into the sea off Bergen in Norway. U-864 was torpedoed by a British submarine in early 1945 as it headed for Japan carrying jet parts. The vessel left Kiel in Germany on December 5, 1944, but the hull was damaged in an attack and the captain headed for Norway to carry out repairs.

    I only met him in person once, many years ago. We met for beers in downtown Oslo. We didn't agree on everything: among other things, he had an irrational hostility toward the United States, which I put down, in part at least, to the fact that he had never set foot in the U.S. and that his English was surprisingly poor (we spoke in Norwegian), so that his image of my country was shaped largely by the mainstream Scandinavian media and by various sources in his native tongue, Arabic. But never mind. What mattered was that he loved freedom, hated...
