Butcher aquarium for poor animal welfare – Nettavisen

Butcher aquarium for poor animal welfare – Nettavisen

Shopping med annonselenker

19 nåværende og tidligere ansatte har sendt et brev til ledelsen ved akvariet i Bergen hvor de kritiserer akvariet for dårlig dyrevelferd.

Brevet kommer samme uken som Akvariet i Bergen fikk kritikk fra Arbeidstilsynet, melder NRK.

De 19 som har skrevet til ledelsen lister opp en rekke forhold de mener er skadelige for dyrene ved attraksjonen på Nordnes. Blant annet har verken pingvinene eller selene noen skjulesteder, og flere skader og dødsfall knyttes til utformingen av den nye pingvindammen, heter det. De kritiserer også arbeidsgiveren for å mangle fasiliteter til karantene og til syke dyr.

– Ledelsen er mer opptatt av hvordan dammene ser ut enn dyrevelferd. Det koster å holde opp kravene til dyrevelferd, men det er viktig at dette blir tatt på alvor, sier en av dem har underskrevet brevet. Det rettes også kritikk mot direktør Kees Ekelis lederstil.

Ekeli selv tror kritikken er uttrykk for at de ansatte føler seg for lite involvert i beslutningsprosessene.

– Vi har stort fokus på dyrevelferd og har alltid hatt det. Mye av kritikken som blir reist er vanskelig å forstå. Vi har veldig sunne og friske pingviner, så det oppleves helt feil å peke på at de har det dårlig, sier Ekeli. Han presiserer samtidig at den gamle seldammen trenger moderniser og sier det er en prioritert oppgave. (©NTB)

The committee was set down by Stoltenberggovernment in March 2013 after it was broad bipartisan consensus that a tax settlement must be done.

The committee submits its conclusions on Tuesday, and then report be sent out for consultation. So the government will eventually come with a White Paper.

Basketball Coach gets tougher rape sentence with three additional years – Aftenposten

Basketball Coach gets tougher rape sentence with three additional years – Aftenposten

He is convicted of five rapes, one attempted rape and two counts of having exploited his position to obtain sexual favors.

The two youngest victims were only 16 and 17 years old when the abuse happened.

The penalty for eleven years unconditional prisons is three years more stringent than the one he got in Court of Appeal before the summer, but still four years lower than it Oslo District Court said was an appropriate punishment.

The reason is that the jury answered “no” in six of the twelve charges, which meant that they also almost half verte penalty.

– My client is obviously degraded the result. Now we will study the Supreme Court grounds carefully, says the man lawyer, Johnny Veum.

The judgment of eleven years in prison in line with the statement from Attorney Carl Graff Hartmann:

– We are well satisfied with avgjørlesen says Graff Hartmann.

– My clients are very happy today. They are pleased that the Supreme Court says so clearly from how serious it looks at this kind of abuse, says counsel Trine Rjukan.

Two years in detention

36-year-old has now been sitting 738 days – or just over two years – in custody at Ila Detention and Security Prison. He will now be transferred on Atonement.

The Court of Appeal considered that redress amount should be set at 185.000 million for the two youngest because of their low age and because they were exposed to a gross breach of trust. Judges therefore went beyond the Supreme Court’s standard norm of 150,000 kroner compensation in rape cases.

The Court ruled 36-year-old to pay compensation of 150,000 kroner to the three other women he is convicted of having raped.

These indemnities remain.

The Supreme Court has only looked at sentencing.

[Telemarksavisa] – Dad, you have received a letter from the king. You are probably the first in the family who has received it, says daughter Sissel Tveitan Brekke, who adds that the letter is signed Harald R.

– Then you can answer “Thank you, sincerely Ivar T.” , it comes instantly from the jubilant, who almost seems it gets a little too much attention since local press popping up in his apartment over Gulset Centre in Skien.

– How is it to be 100 years?

– I have not thought about it. As long as I feel fresh, so it’s okay, says Ivar Tveitan.

It is an established fact that smoking is risky, but Tveitan makes it clear that he has no plans to stop.

– I have smoked for 85 years. During the war we leave green tobacco leaves on the stove until they were brown, so we smoked it in newsprint. It was the tobacco we had during the war, says Tveitan, which thrives in the apartment at Gulset.

Nine siblings

– There are quiet and calm. I have no better place to stay – here I thrive, says Tveitan.

Among congratulators was obviously little brother Georg William Tveitan as humorous says that big brother is not the only one in the family to get a letter from the king.

– I intend to get a letter like that too, laughs Georg William, who explains that they were nine siblings.

– People had many children before, adding to the jubilant.

Around the World

When asked where he originally comes from, the answer is that he is Gjerpensdalen boy. A home maids who know Tveitan well, reveals that he has countless great stories from around the world, from their time as a sailor in foreign trade.

– Can not you tell when you were outdistanced ? asks one of the guests.

– It happened several times, says Tveitan, which also experienced being imprisoned two months without reason in Hamburg, during WWII.

Much has naturally changed since Tveitan was young, and they would not freeze store and refrigerator.

He says he age of 15 worked to cut blocks of ice, which he drove on a horse and sleigh.


– I worked for Jespersen and drove horse. We went to Norsjø and sawn blocks of ice weighing between 70 and 100 kilograms. They let the sled and we went off, telling Tveitan.

– We let the blocks in sawdust in a warehouse, and the blocks held throughout the summer, tells Tveitan, which itself has no definitive answer on how he has achieved the high age.

In youth he played football at Skotfoss AIK (Workers’ sports club) and in 1935 became the circuit masters at Notodden. Tveitan has framed team photo with the names of the players written behind. The team were also two of his brothers.

Dattera Sissel Tveitan Brekke says that his father also rode a lot over the years.

– He rode until he was a few and 90 years and he rode through here (from Gulset) and out to Downtown to shop, she says.

– Anything was better before

Georg William believes that some things were actually better before, although they had not so many material goods as now.

– It was quieter and cozier before, he says.

– It was not the wealth but Now people have got a very prosperity, but they complain too much. And those who complain are usually to blame himself. (ANB)

The reduced operation comes as a result of low coal prices on the world market.

The company states that everything indicates that coal prices will remain at a low level in the future, and that it leads to substantial losses.

Monday’s decision is not sufficient to ensure Major Norwegian, and further measures are being considered, the company writes in a press release Monday night.

The company has 340 employees in mining operations in Svalbard.

250 can move from Svalbard

– This is a sad day for the Svalbard community. It is dramatic with such large cuts in business to Store Norwegian. And it’s especially bad that many are now going to lose his job just before Christmas, says local chairman Christin Kristoffersen (Ap).

According to local chairman, up against 250 of total 2200 inhabitants in Longyearbyen be affected by redundancies, about using a normal factor of 2.5 to bring family members of those who lose their jobs.

– 30 percent of those who work in the mines also have children in kindergarten or school, and the cuts are going to give repercussions for a variety of businesses here, says Kristoffersen.

Reduces the two mines

It will initially be implemented reduced operation in Svea Nord and Lunckefjell six mil south of Longyearbyen.

Currently, it will be held normal operations in Mine 7 just outside Longyearbyen, but Chairman Annette Malm Justad told Aftenposten that one can not rule out cutbacks also there.

– We deeply regret that we must terminate employees, but it is necessary to reduce operations and cut costs if the company is to survive. The alternative is controlled liquidation now. It is also important to be aware that the crisis in the Great Norwegian is not over with, she says.

Big gap profitability

When the new Lunckefjell mine opened in February, as first Svalbard mine for 14 years, was the potential for profitable operation for a coal price of around $ 130 per tonne.

– Now the price dropped to 73-74 dollars per ton, and against all predictions, the price not increased during the autumn, but rather stagnated like the price of other commodities such as iron ore and oil, says Malm Justad.

– Is this the beginning of the end of coal mining on Svalbard?

– I have no ambitions to liquidate coal mining, but it is necessary to find a profitable operation. There may be new measures on top of the downsizing that has now been adopted, and we are also going to have to put in place new funding to improve the company’s liquidity, she said.

Need new loans

Malm Justad reports that Major Norwegian need increased borrowing to get through the crisis.

Major Norwegian was established in 1916 and operates three coal mines in Svalbard Svea Nord and Lunckefjell seks mil south of Longyearbyen, and Mine 7 Adventdalen right outside Longyearbyen.

Travel and research new pillars

According to local chairman Christin Kristoffersen has Svalbard community for a long time worked to build up strong complements to mining.

– The tourism industry has got a lot of good, and has become a year-round offerings with new visitors. Besides research activities a strong contributor to new activity, said she.

Got 200 million. New Port

Last year Svalbard also set up in the National Transport with a grant of 200 million million to construct new port in Longyearbyen.

The entire project is estimated to cost 400 million.

– Much of the development potential we see require an industrial engine, and Major Norwegian is an important player for port development, says Kristoffersen.

Gunhild Stordalen seriously ill – Aftenposten

Gunhild Stordalen seriously ill – Aftenposten

In late October, Gunhild Stordalen have been discovered the potentially life-threatening disease, writes Dagens Næringsliv.

Systemic scleroderma is a connective tissue disease that can spread to the whole body, and attacks the skin and internal organs.

Stordalen says to DN that she did not know if she is healthy.

– I asked superior Rikshospitalet: “If I die, how come my life to be?” And then he said: “There we are not talking about now,” says Gunhild Stordalen the newspaper .

-Betydelig mortality

The prognosis for patients with systemic scleroderma is severe, depending on the spread and which organs are attacked.

At widespread disease, seen in about 40 percent of cases, the mortality during 5 years significantly, according to Major Medical Encyclopedia. The worst is that if the heart, lungs or kidneys are affected. For half of the patients stabilizes the disease itself and involves limited functionality, writes dermatologist Tor Langeland in Major Medical Encyclopedia.

At Gunhild Stordalen shall disease not yet have spread to internal organs.

Cancelled jobs

Both Gunhild Stordalen and husband Petter Stordalen has since October canceled meetings, lectures and public events.

– We have chosen to talk about this now, despite the fact that no one can know how this ends, said her husband told DN.

Getting experimental treatment

Gunhild Stordalen has been studied both at Rikshospitalet and with specialists in the US. Now she will go through a demanding, experimental treatment in the Netherlands. The next few months she will undergo high-dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplantation.

The news Gunhild Great Valley disease has led to massive endorsements on social media. Saturday morning wrote Petter Stordalen on Twitter:

– I realize that I’m going to be infinitely ill and perhaps shamble down the grave’s edge with both feet until I’m through treatment. But I’ve resigned myself to the risk. The alternative is so much worse. For all I know, is that without stem cell transplant, I’m going to get worse. Much worse, she says in DN report.

Keen food and environment

Gunhild Stordalen is a medical doctor, but has in recent years worked with climate change and environmental protection, both through the foundation Stordalen Foundation , ZERO Conference and GreeNudge. She is also a board member of her husband’s companies Home Invest and Nordic Choice Hotels.

Sandberg: – the Christian Democrats and Left rudder only that – NRK

Sandberg: – the Christian Democrats and Left rudder only that – NRK

– Jeg registrer at både KrF og Venstre ror som bare det for å komme seg vekk fra egen politikk. De må jammen meg stå til ansvar for inndekninga som nå skjer, sier Per Sandberg til NRK.

En milliard kroner skal nå hentes inn ved å ta 1,50 kroner i avgift for hver eneste plastpose og papirpose som du får når du kjøper noe i butikken i Norge. Derimot ble det full krangel om hvem som lanserte avgiften etter at regjeringspartiene signerte avtalen for neste års budsjett fredag.

Uenige om hvem forslaget kom fra

Trine Skei Grande mener Venstre ikke prioriterte poseavgiften under statsbudsjettforhandlingene.

Det var VG som først omtalte saken. Trine Skei Grande påsto da at Venstre ikke prioriterte avgiften under statsbudsjettforhandlingene. Og Siv Jensen i Frp hevder hun måtte gi etter for presset fra nettopp Venstre og KrF.

– Det var regjeringspartiene som først la forslaget om plastposeavgiften på bordet, ikke vi, sier Skei Grande til VG.

Per Sandberg på sin side mener Skei Grandes påstand er helt feil.

– Før vi startet forhandlingene stilte Venstre og KrF krav. Kravene var deres alternative statsbudsjett og der ligger poseavgiften, sier han til NRK.

Han mener partiene som har dette i sine programmer, og som har foreslått det i de alternative statsbudsjettene, bør ta æren for avgiften.

For å finansiere lettelser på cirka tre milliarder kroner i formuesskatten, skal finansminister Siv Jensen kreve 1,50 kroner for hver pose man kjøper når man handler.

Foto: Siv Sandvik / NRK

– Venstre har foreslått dette i sitt alternative budsjett med én krone og KrF har foreslått 1,50 kroner. At man ikke synes noe om å ta æren for sin egen politikk, det får KrF og Venstre svare for, sier han.

Sandberg måtte foreslå avgifta

Derimot var det Frp som måtte legge frem forslag om poseavgiften under forhandlingene om budsjettet.

– Det kom aldri en kravliste fra KrF og Venstre. Derfor måtte vi legge frem forslag som lå forankret i de alternative statsbudsjettene fra KrF og Venstre. Det var slik forhandlingene foregikk og derfor fikk de tilbud om å gjennomføre avgiften, sier han.

– Det var du som foreslo avgiften i referansegruppa, hvorfor måtte du gjøre det?

– For når KrF og Venstre lette etter inndekning for sine utgiftsøkninger, så mente jeg at den minst smertefulle inndekninga som Venstre og KrF har i sine alternative statsbudsjett, er nettopp plastposeavgifta. Det er tross alt en avgift folk kan velge bort.

Selv handler Sandberg med sekk, for å unngå plastposeavgifta.

– Men de andre avgiftsøkningene som ikke minst Venstre har, er direkte fiendtlig mot distriktene og meget smertefull. Derfor var det uaktuelt, sier Sandberg.

Tar gjerne æren

Sandberg mener Skei Grande fortjener å få bildet sitt på plastposen.

– Hvis KrF og Venstre ikke vil, så tar jeg gjerne æren for at det kommer en plastposeavgift i stedet for andre større avgifter.

Avgiften trer i kraft 15. mars neste år. Selv bruker Sandberg ryggsekk når han handler, for å slippe å betale for poser.

– Ryggsekk med mange rom, slik at man kan skille varene man handler, er veldig smart. Da blir det få avgifter, sier Sandberg.
