This article is available to Members of The Local. Read more articles for Members here. How would you say Sweden is seen in Russia; what connotations do people have? We do have hard data on this. We have attitude surveys by the Levada Centre which is the one independent polling agency in Russia, and their findings are strikingly consistent. Every year since 2014, two thirds of the Russian population have had a positive or very positive view of Sweden. It's varied between 63 and 67 percent [the survey has not yet been published for 2018, but last year the figure was 64 percent], so remarkably stable considering that in 2014 there was [the Russian annexation of] Crimea and Sweden was very vocal about that, then in 2015 we had the refugee crisis and quite frankly Russian TV in particular is basically all government-controlled, so the picture painted of Sweden was that we were 'swamped', 'it's ruining the economy', 'the crime rate is up', 'we're on the verge of a civil war', et … [Read more...] about ‘I believe we have a lot to teach Russia in terms of free speech’
Anthony Fenech Detroit Free Press Published 4:51 p.m. UTC Jul 30, 2018 COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — The first rule of the Cooperstown House is you do not talk about the Cooperstown House. There are many more rules, listed on laminate pages inside of a binder that says, “PLEASE READ” with a smiley face, like “Absolutely NO SMOKING!” and “Absolutely NO HOUSE PARTIES!” and “Absolutely NO PETS!” But by the time I pull into the driveway of the red house with the red truck, in the back of David’s Honda CR-V, I am well-aware of the first rule. When David, an Uber driver known for great conversation, asks where I’m from and why I’m here, I say, “For work,” and nothing more. “Incognito,” someone texted me earlier. “U will get killed if you blow our cover.” It is Friday afternoon and three married couples and me have gathered at a cottage off a county road in Cooperstown, N.Y., to live … [Read more...] about I stayed with the 1984 Tigers in Cooperstown.

“Don’t touch me too much. And don’t go too fast,” I said. “And don’t be mad if I don’t look like I’m having that much fun.” These were the words of encouragement (okay, commands) I gave to my significant partner before our first time having sex in the three months since I'd given birth to our daughter. Talk about a pre-sex buzzkill, right? Advertisement - Continue Reading Below In response, my ever-supportive partner remained calm. “It feels the same,” he said as soon as he was inside me. He’s right, I thought. Then, No he’s not!!! He can’t be!!! Physically, my doctor had reassured me that I was fit for sex, but psychologically I was a wreck. I was terrified that things would be permanently different ~down there~ or that I wouldn't be able to experience pleasure like before.Most of all, I was extremely aware of the extra pounds I was still carrying on my hips, thighs, and butt. I didn't want … [Read more...] about ‘I Used To Love Getting Naked—And Then I Got Pregnant’
Americans hate fast-food hamburgers. We mock their ingredients, stare slack-jawed at their high sodium counts and blame them for our expanding waistlines. We consistently rank the Big Three burger chains — McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's — near the bottom of America's most satisfying fast-food options.Americans love fast-food hamburgers. Every year, we pound down millions of Big Macs, Whoppers and Dave's Singles, as if trying to confirm the outside world's opinion that many Americans have ground beef running through their veins. Despite our apparent distaste for Wendy's, Burger King and McDonald's when a pollster calls, we have consistently made these companies among the highest grossing fast-food chains in America.What gives? Are we hypocrites? Addicted to cheap food? Or maybe we're just too weak to avoid one of the thousands of locations of McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's that dot the landscape?I have an alternative theory: Intellectually, we may embrace … [Read more...] about I tried the Big Mac, Whopper and Dave’s Single. They share the same major flaw.
