Artist Dianna Cohen shares some tough truths about plastic pollution in the ocean and in our lives — and some thoughts on how to free ourselves from the plastic gyre.
And she talks about a shift from 3R (Reuse, Reduce, Recycle) to 4R (Reuse, Reduce, Recycle and REFUSE), dealing with refusing products whose packaging is plastic-made.

Søderlund topscorer til Tippeligaen!

Mål (highlights her!):
> 1-0 (13) A. Søderlund
Jensen legger hardt inn fra høyre, og Origi får bare dyttet ballen ut i feltet. Da dukker Søderlund opp som den måljegeren han er, og pirker ballen i mål.
> 2-0 (20) A. Søderlund
Søderlund lurer seg bak Amundsen og blir belønnet med et perfekt innlegg fra Helland. Tippeligaens toppscorer gjør null feil alene med keeper, og setter ballen enkelt i mål.
> 3-0 (35) P. Helland
Andersson drar seg forbi to spillere ved midtbanen, men så stopper han opp. Da får Rosenborg tak i ballen, og setter i gang en eksemplarisk kontring. Til slutt er det Jensen som sender ballen videre til Helland, som vender av en spiller og smeller ballen i mål.
Artistic expression offers us the unique opportunity to make a statement that goes beyond the limitations of verbal communication. While these statements (and, of course, their interpretation) are subjective, they often yield messages potently relevant to today’s social and/or political climate.
Brazilian artist Carol Rossetti’s work does just that. In her series of elegant colour-pencil illustrations titled “Women“, Rossetti uses her artistic voice to raise awareness of the prejudices and stereotypes towards women that are rooted intrinsically throughout cultures all over the world.
As Rossetti explains, the series is part of an ongoing project, launched last May, that came out of a desire to counteract the world’s need to control women’s bodies, behaviours and identities.
“This control is such a deep part of our culture that we hardly ever realize how cruel it is and how it restricts our personal choices,” Rossetti stated on her website.
But Rossetti’s advocacy isn’t just exclusive to women, she explains. The same inequality can be seen in many minority groups.
“I don’t believe it’s enough to discuss exclusively the issues that affect a specific group of women. We also need to talk about racism, homophobia, transphobia, classicism, xenophobia and ableism. The fight for equality and respect is very wide and should be inclusive.”
Rossetti also stresses that her drawings aren’t specifically targeted towards women either. In fact, she openly invites men to identify with her message as well,
“The decision to draw only women was partly motivated by a personal identification. But on the other hand, I find it interesting to awaken in men the chance to identify with female characters. I remember that when I was a kid it was common that the movies / books / animations starring female characters were seen as “for girls”, while stories with male characters were “for everyone”. The fact that my protagonists are women does not make this project just “for girls“.

Jeg tror at det også virker for voksne:
“Every adult deserves a
champion – a person who will
never give up on them, who
understands the power of
connection, and insists that they
become the best they can

Mål (highlights her!):
> 0-1 (10) P. Helland
Helland går på skudd fra skrå vinkel! Frisparket dupper over muren, og selv om Rossbach er på ballen klarer han ikke å hindre frisparket i å snike seg inn på nærmeste stolpe!
> 1-1 (27) Bentley
Occean vinner i lufta på corneren, og forlenger innsvingeren. På bakerste stolpe header Bentley ballen i mål, og Hansen er på bærtur.
> 1-2 (82) Straffe – R. Riski
Riski skyter langs bakken, og Rossbach er på ballen med underarmen før den går i mål.
(90) Straffebom Odd: Ruud skyter til høyre, men ikke langt nok ut, og i perfekt keeperhøyde. Hansen redder.
