На самом деле, мне интересны два момента: 1) обещают муниципальный налог сохранить на уровне 18% на четыре года, и 2) обещают бесплатный год в детском саду для пятилеток. Учитывая, что подготовительный год (esikoulu) с шести лет и он и так бесплатен, это означает надо будет с младшей дотянуть до пяти лет. Сейчас месяц в муниципальном детском саду обходится в 290 евро в месяц на ребенка без скидок, то есть, экономия минимум в три тысячи евро в год. ‎· abbra ‎· 1

Voynich manuscript: the solution http://bit.ly/2wOOu2i
"For medievalists or anyone with more than a passing interest, the most unusual element of the Voynich manuscript – Beinecke Ms. 408, known to many as “the most mysterious manuscript in the world” – is its handwritten text. Although several of its symbols (especially the ligatures) are recognizable, adopted for the sake of economy by the medieval scribes, the words formed by its neatly grouped characters do not appear to correspond to any known language. It was long believed that the text was a form of code – one which repeated attempts by crypt­o­graphers and linguists failed to penetrate. As someone with long experience of interpreting the Latin inscriptions on classical monuments and the tombs and brasses in English parish churches, I recognized in the Voynich script tell-tale signs of an abbreviated Latin format. But interpretation of such abbreviations depends largely on the context in which they are…" ‎· silpol ‎· 1

@9000 should we consider tax loopholes for rich as "privileges for the well-to-do"? should we introduce time-reverse jurisdiction for this rule, as they have benefited from loopholes over long time-span and actually those money are not necessarily theirs? ‎· silpol ‎· 1

Opinion | Why Women Had Better Sex Under Socialism "Yes, there was repression behind the Iron Curtain. But it wasn’t sexual." (by Kristen R. Ghodsee) http://nyti.ms/2fEMkMm
Presumably this is about financial and practical independence, as the stories of these women illustrate. But I am not sure this is the whole truth. It may be true for women who lived in East Germany, but not for women in Ukraine, for example. Or so I was told by a man from Ukraine who I met in the 90s. He told me about heavy moral and also legal pressure on women to stay faithful to their husbands no matter what they wanted. Else they might be judged guilty of ruining their marriage, risk their jobs and face social exclusion as well as additional financial and practical problems. ‎· maitani ‎· 6
