    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...
  • Trump's fake Nobel nomination to remain a mystery

    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...

    An Israeli company located in Judea and Samaria is working to combat the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement through a monthly box subscription that allows supporters throughout the world the opportunity to be part of the Israel experience.

    Three ministers from the Norwegian government presented on Friday a proposal to ban face-covering garments at schools, daycares and other educational institutions. The proposal was presented by ministers from each of the three parties in the coalition government — Finance Minister Siv Jensen (Progress), Minister of Education and Integration Jan Tore Sanner (Conservative) and Minister of Education Iselin Nybø (Liberal). “Even though few people wear the burqa and niqab today, there are instances of it. A national ban will make things clearer for everyone,” Sanner said to NRK. The ban will ensure good communication in educational contexts, the minister added....

    The Norwegian Nobel Institute said Wednesday it had filed a police report after receiving a seemingly fraudulent nomination for the US president. “We have good reason to believe that a nomination we received concerning Trump has been falsified,” Nobel Institute director Olav Njølstad told AFP. He refused to provide further details, saying police were now looking into the matter. Each year, nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize must be submitted by January 31st. Among those entitled to propose names are members of parliament and government, former laureates and some university professors. While the list of candidates is kept secret for...

    Norway plans to ban semi-automatic firearms as of 2021, nearly a decade after right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik's mass shooting left 69 people dead, a Norwegian lawmaker said on Tuesday. The minority right-wing government had presented a proposal on the ban last year. "Today (Tuesday), it has become clear that there is a parliamentary majority in favor of the government's proposal. Semi-automatic weapons will therefore be banned in Norway," Peter Frolich, a Conservative member of parliament's standing committee on judicial affairs, told AFP. The ban, which would enter into force in 2021, comes amid renewed debate on semi-automatic weapons in...

    Norway’s $1 trillion-dollar sovereign wealth fund doubled its return on investment last year, and this year, it’s not shying away from the markets--even when many are giving up on the bull run. In fact, the fund is wholeheartedly embracing the spike in volatility, with plans to add some $40 billion in stocks to its portfolio. After all, the fund beat its own benchmark and it’s riding high on massive $130 billion in winnings. First, let’s look at last year’s success story:

    Kilian Jornet from Spain became the first person to ski down Norway's Troll Wall after completing the daredevil feat last week. The skier completed a descent down the Fiva route on the extreme peak in Romsdal, reports Norwegian broadcaster NRK. Several extreme skiers have considered the route in the past, but none have previously completed the feat, according to the report. "It was all very interesting because it is a very 'logical' and attractive line for skiing," Jornet told NRK via an SMS. The Spaniard has spent two years planning and assessing possible ways of skiing down the Fiva route,...

The Verge reported that the upgrades will focus on a new concrete tunnel and “emergency power and refrigerated units and other electrical equipment that emeits heat through the tunnel.” The Svalbard Global Seed Vault, a gene bank built underground on an isolated island in a permafrost zone some 620 miles from the North Pole, was...
