Answer: the bow is reversed. The string should be on the oposite side and the bow should be curving the oposite direction. It's not the ancient version of holding the gun backwards forwards because you probably can't kill anyone with this bow. Maybe it's comparable to putting the bolt and rounds pointing the wrong direction in the gun? It's stupid anyway and I hope they make a new poster.
David Zaritsky is interviewing one Daniel Craig om TheBondExperienve in about eight minutes. If you're interested in that sort of thing ....
Wow, that's quite a coup for him. Saw David was on This Morning recently too.
Back in June, we had to make a decision re. Covid vaccination:
We decided for 1. *and our vaccination commission (Stiko) yesterday advised that all J&J vaccinated people should get an MRNA booster shot now.
Happy to report that we‘ll receive our Biontec shot next Wednesday.
*We both agreed to behave just like we would be unvaccinated to prevent infection as good as we could.One reason, why I did not attend the NTTD premiere in London last week
Do you think a complete removal of Covid-19 restrictions in Germany is close or months into the future?
I don‘t think so.
Our vaccination rate is too low to open up - there are simply too many unvaccinated people around and they will get their infection in the coming months presumably.
Pity. We're lucky here in the Nordic countries.
Congratulations to Dimitrij Muratov and Maria Ressa with the Nobel peace prize! Free press and truth itself is under attack and they are just two of the many journalists who risk their life every day to expose power.
The glaciers feeding the famous Seven Sisters waterfalls by the Geiranger fjord (do yourself a favour and search with Google Images) have become 40% smaller in the last thirteen years. Glaciers are disapearing all over the world. Do you think this is pure chance or could could it be that almost all scientists working with meteorology and other related fields be right?
Tonight there was a mass shooting in the town of Kongsberg near Oslo. Very rare here, but even rarer the man used bow and arrow! The archer is arrested and there are five killed and two wounded. We don't know the motives of the killer.
It's the leading article on BBC News here in the U.K. A bow and arrow is very bizarre to say the least. It looks as though it's not being treated as terror related.
The police can't say yet if it's terror related, but the police security service PST (domestic counter-inteligence) was contacted very early.
I have a little bit of experience with archery and I think the ratio of deaths versus wounded indicates he's a skilled archer.
Very sad news @Number24 My condolences🙏
Thanks. In an average year we get about thirty murders (seven gun related so far) so five murders in about 40 minutes is a shock.
The arrested man is a Danish citizen living in Kongsberg. The domestic inteligence service PST say they were aware of him. He has converted to islam and threathend to kill his father earlier. PST say it looks like terrorism, but they can't say for sure yet.
Childhood friends warned the police against the arrested man for four years, but so far the police haven't replied to questions about what they did with this information (if anything). The man is now turned over to the health services while the investigating continues. I guess the court will decide if the man was accountable for his actions at the time of the crime. My take on everything is that the killer was mentally ill for years and his illness and agression happened to find an outlet through radical islam. It could easily have been radical far-right ideology or conspiracy theories.
I'm not going to make much more of the tragedy in Kongsberg, but here is an update. The who incident looks less like terrorism and more and more like a mental health issue. It also looks like all of the murder victims weren't killed by arrows, but by some kind of knife. The killer wasn't a skilled archer, he was a novice with a beginner's bow and arrows.
Two big questions emerge:
-Why didn't the police do more to help the mentally disturbed man? They for warnings for about six years.
- The three police patrols reached the Coop within minutes after he started firing arrows at people. The officers tried to stop him there, but pulled put to get better armour for themselves in spite of all the civilians in danger inside. Then it seems like the police stood waiting outside, er soting for their hemets and better armour, forgetting to cover all the doors. The attackers escaped, and the police hunted him for about thirty minutes until they managed to arrest him. It was in this time period he killed five people, en entering people's homes to kill them.
I have a suspicion of what happend. Norwegian police are very good at social relations, de-escalating dangerous sitiations and negotiationg. You only need to look at murder rates and other crime statistics to understand this is nearly always a great success. But in these situations the police need to enter "soldier mode". Their job may require them to put themselves in extreme danger and even kill to protect civilians. It looks like the police officers didn't manage to change their mental state in time in Kongsberg, much like at Utøya ten years ago. There two police men wearing armour and armed with pistols and submachineguns hid behind boathouses on the mainland while civilians were risking their lives using their boats to save the fleeing kids in the water. The two officers thought their job was directing traffic while waiting for SWAT from Oslo.
