More about @jenteprosjektet @IDUN_phd_to_prof #gender #research #education

Here you have the pictures taken by Kai on Monday. Our wish of cooperation between ADA and IDUN is not only improved gender balance at all level from High School to Bachelor and Master, and from PhD to Professor but also, and may be most important, an increased mutual understanding between Norwegian students and foreign researchers for the benefit of education and research. As a department head, I have heard Norwegian students complaining about International assistants. As foreigner, I have heard foreigners complain about Norwegian. If we work together, we find out that we do not have anything to complain about.

how does it feel to get older @ntnu #trondheim

Getting older is a tabu, expecially for women, expecially for Italian women. You never see a woman with grey hair in Italian TV, unless it an old lady in a movie. I went for a lunch alone in the main cantine of the university and instead of thinking of the many work challenges, I was thinking that sometimes I went for a lunch alone 30 years ago when I was an exchange student, in the same cantine of the same university. At that time the cantine was quite dark, the students were almost all blond and white, they were playing cards and smoking sigarettes and had a light in their eyes while discussing lively.
Today most of the students were quite dark, a lot of Italian people, Chinese, other nationalities, some few blond ones. The cantine is painted light blue. It is a priviledge to get older. It is a proviledge to get older in a cantine full of students from all the world who have the same lively light in their eyes.

This is a podcast with Silvja Seres and me. There is a small mistake in the text as the name of Daniela Soares Cruzes is written instead of me. I take it as a compliment to be confused with young, smart Daniela. In any case, hope you enjoy it. I enjoy very much all the LØRN podcasts.

@patricia_lago I understood about software and sustainability when I was at your professor lecture, so thanks and all credit to you

Gør Verden Smukkere

I found this book at the bookstore at Copenhagen airport, in the old days when I did not have a kindle and sometimes I was so desperate to read a book that I bought books in Danish or even in Portughese when I did not have books in languages I understand better. These were the lucky days of being open to new things. That small book and the two Gør Verden Smukkere 2 and 3 that I ordered later, changed my life. These small books changed my life because the stories in the book bring awareness to patterns we have inside us. For example the princess who has been criticized by her mother, will have a tendence to criticize her self and all people around her. These are cartoon about different roles, how they interact with each other, and how they evolve. My own Tappetina is somehow inspired by these books. The books address quite complex psychological concepts in a light way.

On my copy of the first book I wrote 18.02.2010. It was many years ago, but we already had facebook. I contacted the author and we are still in contact. He is going to release book 4 now and guess if I am looking forward. I read again my own notes “Copenhagen airport 18.02.2010, jeg har alltid behov til å tenke over eksistensielle spørsmål, ikke tørst, sulten osv. Jeg har det bra, jeg har ikke behov til å tenke på fortiden. Jeg har behov til å være kreativ. Thanks again Per Leth-Nissen for 3 intelligent and creative books. I really look forward to the new one.
