One man arrested

As readers of this blog have undoubtedly seen one man has been arrested in Norway in connection with both the bomb attack and the shooting spree at the youth camp. An acquaintance who lives in Oslo, is safe but badly shaken, seems to know no more than we do here, which is understandable at this stage.
The suspect is reported by local media to have had links with right-wing extremists. He has been named as Anders Behring Breivik. Police searched his Oslo apartment overnight.

The BBC's Richard Galpin, near the island, says that Norway has had problems with neo-Nazi groups in the past but the assumption was that such groups had been largely eliminated and did not pose a significant threat.

Police say they are investigating whether the attacks were the work of one man or whether he had help.
For what it is worth, I am finding it hard to believe that one man could be responsible for both attacks without any help at all.


    Collective dismissal of 112 workers at the Casino Estoril
    Under these conditions shall not constitute a scandal and immorality proceed to the destruction of the life expectancy of many people? For more when the average age of women and men fired stands at 49.7 years?
    Unfortunately, news of a more collective dismissal has been made in our country in a situation of triviality, to which the media attribute less importance, thus giving the true hidden human dramas that are always associated with loss the livelihood of a man, a woman or a family.
    But beyond the near silence of the media, what's most striking citizens affected by this scourge is the impassive state who is responsible, through the bodies established for that purpose, monitor and enforce the constitutional and legal imperatives to protect the employment.
    And the most shocking thing is still the State's own participation, either by default or the performance of duties, especially for active complicity in the commission of acts that objectively favor the dismissal of workers.
    We refer, gentlemen of the Republic, the dispassion of organizations such as ACT-Authority for Labour and DGERT (special department of the Ministry of Labor), who asked to enforce the substantive conditions of the dismissal, did nothing by the evidence witnessed.
    I understand, finally, that the operation of games of chance is that the state gives in the form of an administrative contract, a monopoly, to private operators.
