That was this week’s news, 18 June 2010. Amongst the headlines, thin lines, and Party lines. On Monday, NRK reported every third teacher wants to leave the profession because of all the paperwork. SV’s (Socialist Left) Education Minister Kristin Halvorsen has delivered a White Paper listing ways to improve the situation, but couldn’t say when they would start working. Go to the bottom of the class. Insomnia costs the welfare state billions of kroner per year, reported Dagbladet on Tuesday. The risk of ending up on benefit is tripled if you wake up every night over a period of weeks. Worrying about it is enough to take your sleep away.

On Monday, NRK reported every third teacher wants to leave the profession because of all the paperwork. SV’s (Socialist Left) Education Minister Kristin Halvorsen has delivered a White Paper listing ways to improve the situation, but couldn’t say when they would start working. Go to the bottom of the class.

Insomnia costs the welfare state billions of kroner per year, reported Dagbladet on Tuesday. The risk of ending up on benefit is tripled if you wake up every night over a period of weeks. Worrying about it is enough to take your sleep away.

On Wednesday,Aftenposten had an article about forgetful Norwegians. Police at Oslo Gardermoen say they issue 700 temporary passports a month because travellers leave them at home. They should get more sleep.

Thursday’s The Foreigner full marks go to naive Norwegians. 1 in 5 of them don’t take out travel insurance, according to NRK, and 80,000 a year need help from the UD (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) because they are careless. At least they remembered their passport.

The future of Norwegian alternative energy has been saved. Yesterday’s motion of no-confidence against Petroleum and Energy Minister Terje-Riis Johansen may have fallen flat, but the hot air that’ll be created if he’s re-shuffled will probably warm the hearts and homes of many Opposition Party leaders.
