German state signs contract with Novell for the supply of Linux server and desktop products to schools serving 560,000 students.
The real problem with rap is that far from undermining society’s values it’s reinforcing them, and the most fundamental of all our society’s values at the moment is that you are what you own.

I might as well admit that I’ve opened a profile on Facebook. As it turns out so have a lot of the PhD-students at my department as well. And Tariq Bacchus. (How did he show up? Oh, never mind, I added him anyway).
Incidentially, a search for “Jacob Christensen” yields no fewer than 38 namesakes. Perhaps I should add them all as friends and start a group… ðŸ˜›
Note: How about the family? I’ve been through Christensen/Sweden, Butenschøn, Harders, Lakatos, Myrup and Ytterberg. No catch.

According to Sveriges Radio, Swedish universities and colleges will be cancelling one in ten of the programmes offered after the start of the fall semester. The reason is simple: Lack of students. Science and technology programmes are especially hit as are newer and smaller colleges and universities.
It is a bit difficult to say exactly how big the problem is by reading SR’s report.
One problem is that Swedish colleges and universities offer both programmes (3-5 years) and courses (one semester-packages) – another is that programmes and courses can be designed to varying numbers of students. So it could be that one in ten programmes is cancelled, one in ten courses is cancelled or that universities have seen a drop in admissions of around ten per cent. But that many institutions of higher education face economic problems in undergraduate education is a safe conclusion.
Here in Umeå the fall semester starts on Monday so it is a bit early to say how the numbers will look for the university as a whole and political science and peace and conflict research as subjects.

De økonomiske vismænd har derfor advaret om, at der ikke på kort sigt er kapacitet i økonomien til en stigning i det samlede forbrug. Situationen tilsiger tværtimod, at det samlede forbrug burde dæmpes. Det kan ske enten ved at sænke det offentlige
