Unified States of America has just teared down and vandalized a statue of a Norwegian-American ( Hans Christian Heg ) in Madison i Wisconsin.

https://www.nbc15.com/2020/06/24/protesters-topple-forward-statue-and-heg-statue/

"It was pulled down by demonstrators on June 23, 2020 and rolled into nearby Lake Monona" (actually they departed his head from his body and was throwing the head in the river, the body also?)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Christian_Heg

"He was an outspoken anti-slavery activist " (but Republican)


Norwegian priest statue on Greenland also attacked.

Why not remove all statues and burn alls books, and change name of all towns and universities that are named or have their name after someone that had viewes back then that do not fit todays average view. So almost everything by persons born before 2000.... should be removed?  
What about this guy?

Written sources tell us that the Vikings sold slaves at trading centres, such as Hedeby, and Bolghar on the Volga.  Here slaves were traded and exchanged for other products. The buyers might be Viking farmers, who could use slaves in the household, as well as for the hardest and most unpleasant work in the fields. Significant numbers of slaves probably also provided a proportion of the manpower for the great building projects of the Viking Age.

The Vikings were not the only ones who traded in slaves. Slaves were also traded in Western Europe, but here it was not common practice to sell fellow countrymen. The Church was against Christians being forced into slavery by “the heathen” Vikings. One account describes how a monk was so shocked at seeing Christian slaves for sale in Hedeby in 870, that he sold all his possessions and personally bought the slaves their freedom.
Therefore, the Slavic peoples of Eastern Europe were for a long period an obvious target for European and Nordic slave traders. It is from this area that the term “slave” originates.

Is landing on the knee a part of the throw technique?

Well spotted; It is a knee drop technique used when the 'normal' shoulder throw doesn't work. It was one of my favourites in the 70s..

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne3i9DoBQU0

I can't do these really (40 years and 20 kg on) with the exception of @1.35-2.40 that I learned from the best. Basically, I use hand technique/tewaza + power. It's basically imported from Sumo. Even if the initial attempt doesn't work you just keeping moving in a circle until opponent literally doesn't have a leg to stand on. There must be a formula ...

A long standing question is whether “Take on me” is just a word for word translation of “Ta på meg”, which idiomatically translates to “Touch me”. But, as somebody has pointed out, song lyrics don’t necessarily have to make sense. Nice sound, though, and the video looks pretty fresh 35 years later.

My dad taught me some judo hip throws. I did small hip on a school bully once. We became friends afterwards.

I was convinced that A-ha was an American band. The frontman didn't look Viking at all to me, but now that I know that he's Norwegian, I imagined him in blond hair and, yeah, 100% Norwegian phenotype - Nordo-Lappid. Artists... don't they know that dying hair is for criminals.

As best as I can tell, the vegans are all on the same side here. The dispute seems to lie, not exactly shockingly, between them and a representative of the old farmers’ party (Senterpartiet). At least in Norway, farmers as a group have a long history of resistance to everything newfangled from environmental protection to the organic movement, let alone veganism. More interestingly (to me at least), they make reference to a relatively recent legal precedence that (under doubt) deemed vegans as having protected status under legislation about ethnic discrimination. Although it had to be veganism as a philosophy, not merely a dietary preference...

Some veganos noruegos freaked out that we would be qualified or perceived as a religion to qualify for the funding and the sneaky farmers exploited those fears. Religion (whatever it is these days) or not, I say pecunia non olet - carne olet!

I just killed the main ingredient in tonight’s dinner, so I should probably just be quiet at this point.
