Frölunda HC: The Gold Standard of NHL Prospect Development

Developing hockey players is no easy task. It takes years of moulding players the right way to turn them into stars, and it doesn’t always pan out. Players can be ranked very high ahead of the NHL Draft, but never end up playing an NHL game. Developing prospects takes patience, adaptation, and communication on every single layer. Teams across the world try their best to produce high-end talents and develop them as they reach higher ranks. It’s an extremely difficult art that carries a high l...

A molecular atlas of skin cells

Our skin protects us from physical injury, radiation and microbes, and at the same time produces hair and facilitates perspiration. Details of how skin cells manage such disparate tasks have so far remained elusive. Now, researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have systematically mapped skin cells and their genetic programs, creating a detailed molecular atlas of the skin in its complexity. The study is published today in the scientific journal Cell Stem Cell.

One Bed, Two Blankets: Does The Scandi Sleeping Method Work?

I can’t remember when exactly I encountered the two blankets, one bed sleeping arrangement, but I do know I wasn’t a fan at first. It would have been during the first year of my relationship with my Danish girlfriend (now wife), when we were long distance between my university and London and often confined to a single bed when she stayed over. So when we went to visit her family in Denmark, I was looking forward to a night in a double bed, free from each other’s elbows. However, I quickly lea...

What Are The Top Challenges Facing Digital News Publications In 2020?

The decline of the printed press is nothing new. I mean, hello, it’s 2020. Are you going to buy a newspaper from your local newsagent or are you going to pick up your phone and scroll through Facebook/find out what’s trending on Twitter? If you’re under the age of 30, I guarantee it’s the latter. In fact, I’d bet my pet Chihuahua on it… …Cue a shameless excuse to include a photo of my pet Chihuahua Boris – cute, isn’t he? Anyway, back to the matter at hand. As a former Journalism student, lesso...

Blackhawks’ 2014 Draft: The One That Sent Them Awry

The current unfortunate state of the Chicago Blackhawks has fans asking, “What went wrong?” It’s a question that has a complex answer, to say the least. While there are many different directions to point the finger at, I want to dive into something that I believe has been a big contributor up to this point: drafting. Overview Blackhawks general manager (GM) Stan Bowman has been at the helm since 2009. Like any GM, he has had his fair share of good picks and bad picks. On the good side, ...

Volvo CE switches to HVO for demonstration machines in Sweden

In Sweden, Volvo CE Customer Center in Eskilstuna is paving the way for a sustainable future by running its demonstration machines on HVO. Using HVO means that Volvo can significantly reduce its CO2 emissions at the Customer Center, as well as demonstrating to guests how well the fuel works in practice. A key aspect of why HVO wasn’t implemented sooner is due to availability. HVO is a relatively new fuel that wasn’t widely available until recently, so establishing a consistent supply was para...

Julian Assange Is an ‘Ordinary’ Criminal, Not Free-Speech Champion, U.S. Says as It Outlines Extradition Case

(LONDON) — The U.S. government began outlining its extradition case against Julian Assange in a London court on Monday, arguing that the WikiLeaks founder is not a free-speech champion but an “ordinary” criminal who put many lives at risk with his secret-spilling. U.S. authorities want to try Assange on espionage charges that carry a maximum sentence of 175 years in prison over the 2010 publication of hundreds of thousands of secret military documents and diplomatic cables. Assange argues h...

1980 United States Olympic Team Dave Christian Jersey

While everyone recalls the " Miracle on Ice " from February 22, 1980, many do not recall that the United States' victory over the Soviet Union was not the gold medal winning game. In fact, the tournament format in 1980 did not even have a gold medal final, as the teams were not placed in a single elimination bracket, as is the case with the Olympics and World Championships of today. Back in 1980, the format had the top two teams from both the Blue and Red Divisions of First Round group pl...

Old World Meets Modern: A Casual but Elegant Pre-War Flat on the Baltic Coast

Once again, we find ourselves in the familiar position of being utterly charmed by a Colombe Design project. (We’ve waxed poetic about their projects twice before: here and here.)
