Norway PM Solberg to form majority government

Norway's minority center-right government has struck a deal with the small Christian Democratic Party to form a four-party majority coalition, it said on Thursday, confirming earlier reports. The agreement fulfils a long-standing goal of Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg, in power since 2013, who hopes ruling in a majority will provide stability and help ease her path to re-election in 2021. "We had tough negotiations," Solberg said, celebrating the pact alongside leaders of her existin...

Norway's PM Solberg forms majority center-right government

The agreement fulfils a long-standing goal of Conservative Solberg, in power since 2013, who hopes that a majority will provide stability and help ease her path to re-election in 2021. Norway is getting its first non-socialist majority government since 1985," Solberg said. Norway has often been ruled by minority governments which are forced to seek support in parliament from opposition parties to pass laws.

Book Review: Making things right by Ole Thorstensen

Just finished Making Things Right: The Simple Philosophy of a Working Life, by Ole Thorstensen. Written by a master carpenter in Norway, the book goes from the bid for the job of renovating a loft all the way through the completion of the job. I really enjoyed the book, perhaps it was the translation, but the writing is simple and straight forward. It has very little philosophy, it talks about craftsmanship, quality, and gives you a peek into the day to day of a carpenter on a job, how ...
