Strike at the University of Helsinki

We are the university

A strike warning has been issued for tomorrow (28.2.) for the University of Helsinki. The reason is that the negotiations about between the employers and employees about the wages and working conditions are stuck and the strike is used as a means to speed up the movement of the employer's negotiation position towards an acceptable compromise. Business as usual? After all, there hasn't been a strike at the university for a very long time...

The mixed bag of the EU organic food label

EU organic food label

Many people assume that organic production of food results in healthier food with a higher nutritional value. Hence they buy food produced according to EU rules of "organic farming". The first set of rules was introduced in 1991 and it was amended a couple of times. If you want to market your food as "organic" within the EU and use the EU organic food logo, you need to adhere to these rules.
Often the same people that usually are very critical towards EU legislation take it for granted that the EU did a good job with its organic farming directive. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

Remote desktop sessions to your Helsinki University work computer

SnapGene running remotely

If you have a work laptop, you can take it home to do work. But what if you have a desktop computer and need to access it from home? The technology to make this possible exists for more than 20 years, but if you think that University IT has made this easy for you, you would be wrong. In fact, I don't know anybody who knows how to do this easily.
