    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A blazing fireball lit up the dark skies of Arctic Finland for five seconds, giving off what scientists said was "the glow of 100 full moons" and igniting hurried attempts to find the reported meteorite. Finnish experts were scrambling to calculate its trajectory and find where it landed, according to Tomas Kohout of the University of Helsinki's physics department, who said Thursday night's fireball "seems to have been one of the brightest ones." It produced a blast wave that felt like an explosion about 6:40 p.m. and could also be seen in northern Norway and in...

    On October 22, I came across a post by one of my Facebook friends, a free thinking, well-educated, and successful woman who lives in Finland. It began by saying, “This is something very personal I want to share with my FB friends.” Having no idea what I was about to see, I was curious and continued to read. “Some of you know me in IRL [in real life] and some of you just from the internet. But I want you all to know a story about myself. “I am a 23-year-old Kurdish girl born and raised in Finland. My parents...

    The hunt is on for a sick golfer who got his friends to video him decapitating a goose on the tee of a top class golf club in Finland.

    "No Trump! No wall! No U.S.A. at all." This was the chant of the violent, black-masked thugs who descended on an otherwise peaceful protest in Berkeley over the weekend. And it gives you a window into the tactics of the violent fringes of the Left. They attempt to lure in normal, reasonable people -- which they most certainly are not -- by showcasing a common enemy, such as racism or fascism. But that's just a sweetener for their real agenda item. Lots of normal, reasonable people oppose Donald Trump. Many of them oppose the border wall, too. But the third...

    President Donald Trump assured reporters Monday that Mexico will pay for the border wall even if it’s through reimbursement. During a joint White House press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, Trump was asked if it was still his play to have Mexico pay for the wall. “Yes, they will. One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the wall. That's right. It may be through reimbursement, but one way or the other, Mexico will pay for the wall,” the president said. “We're right now negotiating NAFTA. In my opinion, Mexico has been very difficult, as they...

    Hundreds of asylum seekers from the Middle East, including from Iran and Iraq, have converted to Christianity in Finland, according to officials in the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran community. ....While some who are seeking to covert cited disillusionment with Islam as the key reason, others said they felt conversion will help them fit into the Finnish culture, according to Sputnik News, which also speculated that an underlying reason also could be to guard themselves against possible deportation. In Finland, 4.1 million of the 5.5 million people are members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church....

    The Electric Bioreactor Farm Finnish researchers have created a batch of single-cell protein that is nutritious enough to serve for dinner using a system powered by renewable energy. The entire process requires only electricity, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes. The synthetic food was created as part of the Food From Electricity project, which is a collaboration between Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. After exposing the raw materials to electrolysis in a bioreactor, the process forms a powder that consists of more than 50 percent protein and 25 percent carbohydrates — the texture...

    When a young Somali woman got on a bus in Finland, she told the driver that she had bought a ticket earlier, but her phone battery had died so she couldn’t show it. When the driver saw through her subterfuge, the Muslima asked if she could pay for the ticket now. He said, no, you lied before, get off my bus. And he recorded the whole thing on his own phone. After the incident, the driver had the misfortune to encounter two official manifestations of Politically Correct Multiculturalism: (1) His superiors did not back up his actions, and in fact...

  • Finland: Now We Want a Mega-Mosque

    Gatestone Institute ^ | June 6, 2017 | Judith Bergman
    The mosque boasts that it has been "able to organize many activities". One of these, it says, "is to spread Islam to the non-Muslims in Finland". Now Muslims in Finland want a mega-mosque. The idea that mega-mosques "prevent radicalization" is clearly popular among proponents of Finnish mega mosques, but on what evidence is this view based? Can they name one country where this was actually the case? Finland would be wise to look at what the establishment of Saudi and Gulf state-funded mosques in the rest of Europe has already done to the continent in terms of Islamization and radicalization.
