A few days ago I wrote in this blog about my friend Johan Norbergs new book: ‘Progress: Ten reasons to look forward to the future’.
Human life has improved in many ways, both recently, according to a Swedish economic historian, and in the 19th century.
Here is The Economist‘ article about my FB Friend Johan Norbergs new book,
“A tornado of evidence… a blast of good sense”
Read it (both the article and the book), here is a link to the article: The Economist: Better and better
We have spent a few days st the very top of Denmark – in beautiful Skagen.
We also went to Grenen where two oceabs, Skagerack and Kategatt, meet. A fascinating place.
Around 130 years ago Skagen was a colony for artists, painters, writers and composers. They came to Skagen from all over Scandinavia and Europe, to meet peets – but also due to the very specal light.
A lot of famous painters also made Skagen an exiting place in the 19th and 20th century. The most famous being P.S Krøyer, Michael Ancher and Anna Ancher.
The painters and cultural people all lived at Brøndums Hotel in Skagen, the place where we stayed this weekend.
There are so many wonderful thongs to see in Skagen.
I have been in Skagen before but this was the best visit so far. We had great weather and a very nice time.
If you have chance – go there.

Zlatan has had a dream start in his new club Manchester United. What people might not know is that he has the best avarage score of all players in global football.
As a young player in Ajax Amsterdam Zlatan scored nine goals during the 2001-2002 season, which generated a strike rate of 0.46 goals per 90 minutes.
2007-2008 season, his second season at Inter, Ibrahimovic scored 22 times, an average of 0.74 goals.
Last season in Paris Saint-Germain Zlatan had a breathtaking avarage score of 1.09 goals/90 minutes.
Since he pulled on the red jersey of Manchester United, Zlatan in addition to having put fear into any defense of the British Isles, has raised his strike rate further and has this season a rate of of 1.33 goals/game so far.
In fact he has improved his rate every professional season so far which proves that Ibrahimovic is an amazing striker and very few players in the history of the game can show anything similar.
