So Midsummer or Midsommar or one of the hundred different spelling it has is slowly creeping up on us again. Some of you might have no idea what Midsummer is, and other might celebrate it religiously. It is a celebration celebrated mostly in the northern European countries, but with migration the influence have spread to countries like United States, Canada, Australia and Great Britain. Countries celebrate this feast in different ways, some by dancing, and some with bonfires and like us in Sweden, dancing around the midsummers-pole. The biggest midsummer celebrations is hold in the city of Leksand in the middle of Sweden, where thousands of people meet up to dress out in traditional clothing, drink traditional food and dance and sing.

Hello people of the world! I read some good news the other day for the people of Stockholm (and for people of 19 other cities in the world). Stockholm is actually the fourth (4th!) safest city in the world! How good news isn’t that? It’s a study called “Safe Cities Index” made by the newspaper The Economist where they measure; 1. Personal safety, which looks at crime, police engagement etc. 2. They also look at Digital security, where they look at the city’s cybersecurity, identity thefts etc. 3.

The study is topped by the Japanese capital Tokyo followed by Singapore in second place. Third place is taken by Osaka, followed by Stockholm on forth, and Amsterdam on fifth place. […]

Easter

Hi everyone! It has been a great weekend for the students of the MCXL programme. We have had 4 days off without any studies what so ever and it has been so nice!

The reason I chose compulsive gaming is because my older brother use to be a game addict and that caused a lot of problems both for him and people arround him. Compulsive gaming is […]
