We also recommend to grant Moldova the candidate status, on the understanding that the country will carry out reforms.

🇲🇩 is on a real pro-reform, anti-corruption and European path.

It still has a long way to go. But we believe it has the potential to live up to the criteria.

With a positive track record of implementation, we also recommend that Georgia should be given the perspective to become a member of the European Union.

Saanko sanoa jotakin Jukolan viestistä? Sanon kuitenkin.
Jos olisin Suomeen vihamielisesti suhtautuva diktaattori ja suunnittelisi miehitystä, tekisin ensi-iskun Jukolan viestiin. Koko maa lamaantuisi, kun jäljelle jäisi vain meitä Twitterissä viisastelevia.

#Fitfor55 -ilmastopaketin keskeisten päästökaupan, hiilirajavakausmekanismin ja ilmastososiaalirahaston osioiden käsittely palaa valitettavasti vielä valiokuntiin. Työ koko ilmastopaketin hyväksymisen puolesta siis jatkuu.

Centuries before we had American Sign Language (#ASL), Native "Hand Talk" was thriving across North America. Plains Indian Sign Language (#PISL) was used so widely across the Great Plains that it became a universal language for both deaf and hearing people to communicate between tribes. At one point, tens of thousands of indigenous people used PISL for trade, hunting, conflict, storytelling and rituals. It formed the basis for ASL and has largely been lost to history. youtu.be/s1-StAlw3aE

#Fedilab is a paid app on Google and free on #Fdroid.
Google takes off 30% of the 2,5€, the idea was to encourage a small effort to use the free F-Droid app built from sources. Also, it helps to pay our server charges for translations and other services.

But, if you have no alternative to Google and don't want to pay. There is no reason to prevent you using Fedilab.
Just reach us, we can let you get the app for free with a code.

CNN vieraili Helsingin väestönsuojissa – yhdysvaltalainen toimittaja hämmästeli sitä, että lapset leikkivät ja uivat maanalaisissa tiloissa.

Helsingin kalliosuojat tekivät toimittajaan suuren vaikutuksen. Myös hollantilaismedia vieraili väestönsuojissa tänä keväänä.

Eilen iltarasteille ja niiden aikana kuulin korppien nahistelevan, joutseparin ääntelevän ylilennon aikana sekä hätistin komean ukkometson lentoon puun latvasta, mutta kun ei ollut aikaa katsella kännykän kelloa, niin havainnot jäi laittamatta Tiiraan (tiira.fi)

The other day I saw a poll asking “what made you stay at mastodon”. Choices were like “my friends are here”, “dunno, I just stayed”, or some specific good aspects of this place. That was rather ironic as my reason which is also most Chinese users’ reason, is not listed. To this English speaking world, it’s beyond imagination for many that people tooting in Mandarin would most likely call themselves “cyber refugee”. Because we had nowhere to go. Because everywhere was censored and we had to flee.

You know what's real funny about Finland wanting to enter NATO? The armed forces of Finland have a model of territorial defense unique in Europe. It's considered extremely efficient by military experts - as of today, Finland would be able to crush any Russian incursion with conventional weapons. Norway used to have the same model, but was urged by NATO to abandon it. Today, experts estimate that Norway's defense would hold for 2-3 days in case of a Russian invasion. Finland will also be urged to abandon its territorial defense model upon entering NATO, thereby losing most of its in-depth defense capabilities. In terms of defense, NATO will prove a disaster for Finland. Instead, what they ought to have done in the interest of feeling safer is to intensify defense coöperation with the other Nordic countries...

@jonne @snailkane omistusliitteet onkin aina olleet vähän harmaata aluetta.

itsas niihin liittyy sellainenkin jännä juttu, että jos niitä käytetään tosi paljon, kieli nimenomaan näyttää käännöskieleltä, koska mm. englannissa käytetään possessiivipronominia usein lähinnä määräisyyden merkkinä eikä niinkään possession osoituksena, ja kääntäjän pitäisi olla tarkkana eikä korvata niitä jokaista orjallisesti omistusliitteellä, jos possession osoitus ei ole pointtina.
