Still Adjusting | Near-nose still a major blemish for PM
Jan 25, 2014 11:04 am| by admin

Helle Thorning-Schmidt may have narrowly missed receiving a new ‘nose’, but her involvement in the ‘Christiania Case’ is the latest in a long line of scandals that have come to define her time in office. While the PM may have gotten off from a nose job, fellow cabinet members Annette Vilhelmsen and Martin Lidegaard did … Continue reading Still Adjusting | Near-nose still a major blemish for PM

Still Adjusting | Nothing ever changes

I don’t want to get into the habit of recycling column ideas, but let’s face it – news, especially in Denmark, has a cyclical pattern. Two years ago, spurred on by my own letter from Udlændingestyrelsen calling on me to renew my temporary permanent residency (‘temporary permanent’ – isn’t that term wonderful?), I took measure … Continue reading Still Adjusting | Nothing ever changes

On the same day this column appeared in print format, I addressed a small group of expats at the International House as a ‘democracy role model’. My immediate thought when invited to take part was that they must have found the wrong guy, but after speaking with the organiser I realised that, through virtue of … Continue reading Still Adjusting | Stay informed, get engaged, vote

Still Adjusting | When news is no longer news

Thanks to a lovely getaway to the Canary Islands last week, I did something that is increasingly difficult in this day and age: I largely cut myself off from the outside world. With my days full of sun, fun and activities and my evenings filled with a pleasant exhaustion and an internet connection that was … Continue reading Still Adjusting | When news is no longer news

Still Adjusting | Working nine to five, not the only way to make a living
Sep 3, 2013 5:53 pm| by admin

If foreigners living in Denmark were to make a list of their grievances – and let’s face it, we’re generally a whiny lot, so it wouldn’t be terribly hard – poor customer service would probably be near the top. So sadly it came as little surprise to me when getting my home internet connection fixed … Continue reading Still Adjusting | Working nine to five, not the only way to make a living

Still adjusting | Two more years of this? Nej tak

Like many foreigners in Denmark, I have a complicated relationship with the Danish language. Currently, I’m not as good as I’d like to be, but probably a lot better than I let on. In the hopes of improving my situation, I recently decided – nearly two years after I passed my required Danish classes – … Continue reading Still adjusting | Two more years of this? Nej tak

Still Adjusting | My country through Danish eyes
Apr 27, 2013 8:13 am| by admin

There is not much way around it: last week was a bad one for the United States. From the Boston Marathon bombing bringing terrorism back to American shores, to the subsequent manhunt that unfortunately sent a clear message that one deranged man can completely shut down a major US city, it was a long, rough … Continue reading Still Adjusting | My country through Danish eyes

Still Adjusting | An open letter to the Copenhagen Police
Mar 24, 2013 8:05 am| by admin

I suppose you might be expecting a letter of congratulations, and in some ways you are right. You’ve had great success over the past couple of weeks in carrying out co-ordinated raids and crackdowns on organised crime. You’ve collected weapons – including a pair of machine guns – and ammunition, and you’ve arrested key members … Continue reading Still Adjusting | An open letter to the Copenhagen Police

With the strange, twisted tale of Morten Storm continuing to garner attention outside of our nation’s borders, Denmark finds itself a minor player in the ongoing controversy surrounding the US’s use of unmanned drones.   The story of Storm, who directed the CIA’s drones to the hideout of American-born al-Qaeda member Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, … Continue reading Still Adjusting | All eyes on the skies

Still Adjusting | Battle of the bests

Everyone knows by now that study after study has declared Copenhagen the best city in the world. We’ve racked up distinctions like ‘smartest city in Europe’, ‘best quality of life’, ‘best city for cyclists’ and, of course, Copenhagen is the capital of the ‘happiest nation on Earth’, to name but a few. But Copenhagen doesn’t … Continue reading Still Adjusting | Battle of the bests

Still Adjusting | Tak til Ralf Christensen

Somewhat overlooked amid the political wrangling over the 2013 budget and the headline-stealing elimination of the fat and sugar levies, was the government’s promise to invest 10.5 million kroner over the next two years to improve the handling of family reunification cases at Udlændingestyrelsen (Immigration Service). The money was part of a larger effort to … Continue reading Still Adjusting | Tak til Ralf Christensen

Still Adjusting | Information overload
Oct 26, 2012 2:57 pm| by admin

At times I find myself alternately enthralled and appalled by the digital world in which we live. That I could recently watch a man jump out of space on my phone, or watch the full US presidential debates as I commuted to work on the other side of the world, shows the beauty of today’s … Continue reading Still Adjusting | Information overload

Still Adjusting | Back off, rugbrød fascists

After seven and a half years of marriage, my wife has learned that when a certain mumbling arises over the morning newspaper, she should brace herself for an angry diatribe. Such was the case a few weeks ago when I read about a study conducted by University of Copenhagen researcher Martha Sif Karrebæk that detailed … Continue reading Still Adjusting | Back off, rugbrød fascists

Still Adjusting | What I learned over summer holiday
Aug 18, 2012 8:48 am| by admin

Thanks to parental leave, for the first time since I was 13, I had a full summer off. Back in those days, one of the first things you’d be asked to do upon returning from summer vacation would be to write a ‘What I did this summer’ essay. Following those lines, here are five things … Continue reading Still Adjusting | What I learned over summer holiday
