Press Freedom Index 2013 - Reporters Without Borders

Press Freedom Index 2013 - Reporters Without Borders | Finland | Scoop.it

The ranking of most countries is no longer attributable to dramatic political developments. This year’s index is a better reflection of the attitudes and intentions of governments towards media freedom in the medium or long term. The same three European countries that headed the index last year hold the top three positions again this year. For the third year running, Finland has distinguished itself as the country that most respects media freedom.

How Green Is Your Media—Finland Edition - Going Green

Interesting perspective ...“@whattheythink: Going Green: How Green Is Your Media—Finland Edition http://t.co/TBtOBi8o”...

 

Via Don Carli on The Facebook Machine, over at PIWorld, an interesting new take on the whole print vs. online/“which is greener?” discussion. It reported on a study recently conducted in Finland by publisher Alma Media “determine the life-cycle environmental impacts of three of its newspapers and their respective online services.”

The topline results:

The printed newspaper is, on average, a more ecological news media than an online service. This conclusion is based on a comparison of the environmental impacts of one hour of consumption of each media channel. However, taking into account actual usage volume and consumption hours at the current level, the annual environmental impacts of print media generally outweigh those of a corresponding online service.

Helsingin Sanomat - International Edition - Notes To Readers: SATURDAY 8just in case...)

Judgement Day are scheduled to occur on Saturday 21st May, 2011.

:D :D : D

We have no way of knowing for sure if Harold has got it right, but maybe the fact that many church leaders around the world have scheduled normal services of worship for Sunday, May 22nd is an indicator of sorts.
Equally, the fact that the search term "End of the World May 21st" reached the top position on Google Trends suggests that some people aren't quite sure they will have to go to work as normal next week.

See you all on the other side!
