MUJI X Sensible 4’s Self-Driving Bus premiered in Finland. We got a chance to sit in it!

It’s only natural that the world’s first fully autonomous self-driving bus would come out of Finland. Finland, believe it or not, is often considered to be the ‘Silicon Country’ that gave the world Nokia and pretty much set the very blueprint for mobile communications. Nokia was founded in Finland, and for over two grand decades before Apple launched the iPhone, Nokia was the standard to beat. In fact, there’s a high likelihood that your first phone was a Nokia (I know mine was). Post-2010 whe...

Jenni Hiirikoski Goes One-On-One & Shares Some Fun Facts

Do not be surprised if someday the IIHF decides to name the Best Defender Award after Jenni Hiirikoski. If anyone even petitioned the International Ice Hockey Federation to do so, the governing body would probably welcome the notion. It would be necessary to wait until Hiirikoski has retired – something we hope is many moons from now. Since she began representing Finland in Women’s World Championships in 2004, Hiirikoski has won the award herself six times – including five consecutive – 2009, 20...

Golden Knights 5 Best Options in the Second Round

The Vegas Golden Knights are in an unfamiliar position. After having six draft picks in the first three rounds during last year’s entry draft, they now have only one. They are one of only five teams (New Jersey, Nashville, Calgary, San Jose) to have a single pick in the first three rounds, and only Nashville and Calgary make their first selection of the day after Vegas. Instead of using this draft to build a pool of prospect,s Vegas will be more focused on expanding the depth of their organizati...

The Oilers & Euro Free Agents

There’s no hiding the fact that the Edmonton Oilers will be facing a salary cap crunch as they attempt to fill in the holes on their roster this offseason. Luckily for general manager Peter Chiarelli there are various ways that the team can address this impending problem. Earlier, I looked at a group of unproven soon-to-be unrestricted free agents who are on the cusp of becoming full-time NHL players and could be of interest to the Oilers. Another area where the team’s scouting staff should be f...

'Angry Birds' maker Rovio is shuttering its London studio and axing 7 staff

Finnish gaming firm Rovio is closing its London office after barely one year. The studio, dedicated to mobile gaming, is being shuttered in an effort to focus on generating more revenue from existing titles. The closure means Rovio will axe the seven staff currently working at the studio.

The firm also said the head of its games unit, Wilhelm T...

Finland looks to “Finnish” first in biofuels

As temperatures across much of the Eastern United States have been unbearably and dangerously low thanks to a bomb cyclone and scary sounding meteorological talk, we look to Finland – where temperatures are surprisingly warmer than much of the Eastern U.S. and biofuels are being adopted by cities left and right. So grab a blanket and some hot cocoa as we delve into some of Finland’s most notable recent biofuel developments – just try not to get too jealous of their warmer weather and biofuel lo...

New self-driving electric RoboBuses are launching in Finland this year

The world is becoming increasingly automated, and a new self-driving bus in Finland is evidence of this. Beginning in the fall of 2017, the Finnish capital will launch a new autonomous electric “RoboBusLine.” According to the City of Helsinki the line “represents a shift from an experimental phase to regular, scheduled public transit service with self-driving buses.” Not only will the self-driving vehicles reduce the costs of transportation and improve access to public transit – they will also ...

Finland's 'School of the future' brings kids closer to nature

Finland is well known for its innovative, personalized education system that is regarded among the best in the world. Now the country is also giving attention to the school buildings themselves, and how they could better engage young learners. Of note is the Saunalahti school in the city of Espoo. The fluid space designed by Verstas Architects looks more like a contemporary art space than a basic, if not dreary, brick and mortar public school building.

Skating Towards the Future: Kasper Bjorkqvist

Saturday was a big day for the Penguins as they drafted six new players, including two Americans, two Finns, one Swede and one Canadian. But the player I am most interested in is 18-year-old right winger Kasper Bjorkqvist from Finland. After going undrafted during his first eligible year in 2015, and sitting through Friday’s first round without hearing his name, Bjorkqvist returned on Saturday in hopes he would hear his name. Finally, in the second round, he was picked 61st overall by the Pengui...

Using a single image along with a short story, my goal is to make these countries, regions and cities come alive as if you were traveling alongside me.
