Equality watchdog to review 40 Swedish companies over harassment guidelines

Thousands of women in Sweden have attested to sexual harassment in the workplace over recent weeks, and now Sweden’s Equality Ombudsman will review practices in dozens of companies in a bid to tackle the widespread problems.

The watchdog has drawn up a list of 40 major companies across the media, culture and legal industries where it will review company protocols regarding discrimination and harassment.

“The #MeToo campaign has brought to our attention the fact that [sexual harassment] is so widespread. We knew this before, of course,” Clas Lundstedt, the ombudsman’s press spokesperson, told the TT newswire.

Lundstedt said that broadcaster TV4 was one of the companies to be included in the review, following a report made to the ombudsman. The broadcaster has temporarily removed presenter Martin Timell from his role following allegations of sexual harassment.

Explaining the decision to extend the review to 40 companies, Lundstedt said: “We have decided that it will be most beneficial if we do a broader check of several companies and organizations, rather than one specific check of a single company which we’ve had a report about.”

“It is about ensuring that the organizations have procedures and guidelines to prevent harassment. And then we will also check how employers act when an employee is harassed by a colleague,” he said.

According to Journalisten, the newspaper of the Swedish Union of Journalists, the list also includes the Royal Dramatic Theatre, whose boss recently met with Sweden’s Culture Minister after hundreds of actresses spoke out about harassment in the Swedish film and theatre industries.

Numerous media organizations will also be reviewed, including Sveriges Radio and the newspapers Aftonbladet, Expressen, Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet, and Sydsvenska Dagbladet, according to Journalisten, which cited the ombudsman. This comes a day after thousands of journalists shared their stories of harassment in the industry under the hashtag ‘#deadline’.

Last week, a similar call for action was launched by over 6,000 women working in law, and both the Swedish Prosecution Authority and the Swedish National Courts Administration will also have their practices reviewed.

Thousands of Swedish women joined the global #MeToo social media campaign launched in the wake of assault allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, sharing their own experiences of assault, and over the past month a series of ‘petitions’ calling for concrete action on sexual assault have been created across several different industries in Sweden.

Women working in sport, media, unions, academia, tech, law, politics, music, and theatre are among the many who have spoken out. On Thursday, a petition signed by over 1,700 students or recent graduates alleged assault within Swedish schools.

Cómo Björk se sube a la ola de las criptomonedas | Mercados

La misma semana en la que Björk lanza nuevo álbum regalando 100 audiocoins a sus fans, la Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores (CNMV) emite un comunicado alertando a los inversores sobre los riesgos de las criptomonedas. El bitcoin ha vuelto a cotizar por encima de los 7.000 dólares, cada día se lanzan más de cuatro nuevas monedas virtuales y solo en Yobit (mercado web de criptomonedas) se pueden adquirir gratuitamente más de mil tipos diferentes de monedas digitales. Esto hace que nos debamos plantear varias preguntas.

¿Cuánto vale una criptomoneda? Una primera aproximación para incautos puede situar su valor entre poco menos que un billete del Monopoly y más de cinco veces el precio de la onza de oro. Efectivamente, su valor tiene gran volatilidad, especialmente en mercados globales e interconectados, pero todo esto no es un fenómeno nuevo, y lo sabemos.

Desde 1971, año en el que se abandonó definitivamente el patrón oro, rompiendo el sistema acordado en Bretton Woods, tenemos ejemplos de volatilidad y divisas. Yendo más allá en nuestra historia reciente, podemos constatar cómo el Reichsmark alemán se devaluó en más de 5.000 millones de veces su valor entre los años 1920 y 1923. Es política monetaria.

¿Cuánto vale una divisa? Depende de los Gobiernos que haya detrás, del proyecto que la soporte y de la gente que la use como depósito de valor o como medio para facilitar el tráfico mercantil. Mientras que el dinero emitido por los bancos centrales (dinero fiat) está respaldado por Gobiernos, pudiendo ser impreso de manera ilimitada (riesgo de inflación), las criptomonedas (altcoins-alternative coins) son descentralizadas y, por definición matemática, tienen un número finito de unidades, lo que las hace inmunes a la inflación. En resumen: a mayor uso, mayor valor.

¿Para qué sirven las criptomonedas? Esta pregunta es clave y nos perseguirá durante los próximos años. Cada vez servirán para más cosas. De momento, son un instrumento que permite dotar de confianza al sistema, igual que el dinero tradicional. En este contexto, una ICO (Initial Coin Offering) es el lanzamiento de una nueva criptomoneda.

La ICO se prepara durante meses: primero se diseña y luego se anuncia, explicando el proyecto a futuros usuarios e inversores. En el momento del lanzamiento se crea expectación, siendo uno de los momentos donde ignorancia combinada con ambición pueden provocar los desastres sobre los que previene la CNMV en su comunicado.

Un ejemplo es el fenómeno conocido como pump and dump (inflar y explotar). Antes de la ICO, algún famoso apoya el lanzamiento de la criptomoneda (Paris Hilton lo hizo con LydianCoin o Mayweather con las ICO de Stox y Hubii Network) calentando el valor. Debido a la atención captada, mucha gente acude a la ICO, provocando así la subida del precio (pump).

Transcurrido un tiempo, la atención desaparece y los inversores que acudieron a la ICO no tienen contrapartida a quien vender al precio comprado, provocándose así la caída del valor (dump). Este esquema es perfecto para blanquear capitales o realizar estafas. Este mismo efecto se puede producir en cualquier otro momento de la vida de la criptomoneda, a consecuencia de una noticia.

La propuesta de Björk es el audiocoin. Es una criptomoneda con dos años de antigüedad, asociada con la industria musical. Con la compra de su nuevo álbum regala 100 (unos 30 céntimos de dólar) y posteriormente sus fans podrán obtener más yendo a conciertos o interactuando en redes sociales. Las criptomonedas pueden rentabilizar de forma cómoda los me gusta, permitiendo que el receptor del dato pague con criptomonedas al usuario que proporciona el dato. Escuchar un tema, dejar una opinión, recomendar la canción en la red, son pequeños servicios que el usuario proporciona a la discográfica. Björk juega y experimenta al mismo tiempo que realiza una estupenda acción de marketing. La tecnología detrás de las criptomonedas es blockchain (la cadena de bloques) con aplicaciones mucho más diversas que las monedas virtuales: permite crear contratos.

Todo instrumento financiero es un contrato, no solo las divisas, y en este sentido ya se están empezando a realizar ICO como crowdfunding, dando participación en proyectos a cambio de financiación. Blockchain es una herramienta polivalente que puede llegar a tener gran utilidad en cualquier sector: inmobiliario (hipotecas y registros), asegurador (contratos de seguro y partes de accidente) o comercio (compraventa y alquiler), entre otros. El dinero y los contratos son las bases de las sociedades modernas sustentando el comercio y la convivencia. Blockchain propone reforzar estas bases. Veremos si lo consigue.

Dutch buy more goods and services online, 76% have done so this year

The Dutch are stepping up their on-line shopping – some 76% have bought goods or services on the internet this year, up from 73% a year ago, the national statistics office CBS reported on Friday.

The sharpest increase was in groceries and cosmetics. So far this year, 26% of consumers have bought food and personal items online, up from 19% a year ago. Clothing is the most popular online purchase (52%), followed by travel (48%) and tickets to events at 45%.

But more than 2.5 million people say they have bought nothing on-line this year.  And 80% of these said they would prefer to examine they goods before they bought them in a bricks-and-mortar store. Others had concerns about on-line security and privacy.

Men buy much more on the internet than women. Seven percent of men said they had bought more than 10 items on the internet in the past three months, compared to 5% of women. Men also spend more: 6% said they shopped on-line for €1,000 or more in that period, compared to 3% of women.

Complaints about on-line shopping are increasing as well: 45% of those polled in the CBS survey reported having had problems, 3% more than last year. The most common fault was late delivery.

En ambos casos, Banco BPI continuará distribuyendo los fondos de inversión y los productos de seguros de vida y de pensiones de las referidas sociedades adquiridas.

Finalmente, según el hecho relevante citado, Caixabank adquirirá de Banco Português de Investimento, SA (filial de BPI) su negocio de corretaje, research y corporate finance.

En paralelo CaixaBank establecerá una sucursal en Portugal para desarrollar el negocio adquirido. Las operaciones están sujetas a la obtención de las autorizaciones regulatorias pertinentes.

Según la entidad española “al ser operaciones intragrupo, no tendrán impacto en el balance y resultados consolidados de CaixaBank ni tampoco en sus ratios de capital”.

Prosecutor drops Sweden Democrat MP rape investigation

The investigation of a Sweden Democrat politician accused of sex crimes has been dropped by the prosecutor, who cited a lack of evidence.

The Sweden Democrat politician, who has not been named in Swedish media, was investigated for rape of a ‘less serious degree’, and two counts of sexual molestation (‘sexuellt ofredande’) of fellow MP Hanna Wigh.

“He had a hand on my throat and pressed me against the wall. Then he put his free hand inside my trousers and pushed up a finger. Then he told me we should see each other outside of parliament at some point,” Wigh described the alleged incident earlier this year.

But on Thursday the prosecutor announced the investigation had been dropped.

“Interrogations with both parties and others who have had information relating to the case, and certain written evidence have been obtained. It is word against word and there is no objective external evidence that could clarify what happened between the parties,” said chief prosecutor Maria Sterup in a statement.

The politician, who denies the allegations, went on a leave of absence pending the probe. He said that he was pleased with the way the party had handled it and expected to return to parliament shortly.

“If I had my wish I would have wanted the prosecutor to say that they dropped it because they did not believe the plaintiff’s story,” he told Swedish news agency TT.

“My plan is to return as soon as possible, but I’m not exactly sure what do to. I don’t even know how I feel,” he said, adding that he felt supported by his party colleagues.

Wigh made the accusations in a documentary interviewing her and other women about what they alleged was a “culture of silencing” in the party. She later quit the Sweden Democrats to become an independent MP, criticizing the party for not acting on the allegations before she made them public

“That they reported it to the police was only strategic. That way, you say you’re taking it seriously, but with the knowledge that the investigation will be dropped,” she told the Expressen tabloid at the time.

Wigh told TT on Thursday that she was still disappointed the prosecutor had not pressed charges, but added:

“The whole process has been terribly difficult, but I have also found the strength and self respect that I felt was taken from me when it happened and I chose to be silent about it.”

How to make Swedish root vegetable mash

Mashed root vegetables make a warming wintery side to go with venison, ham and knäckebröd, or even fish. Food writer John Duxbury explains why he loves this popular side dish.

Swedes don’t tend to go in for cooked vegetables. In the days when I looked after Swedish students visiting the UK I was always listening to moans about why Brits insisted on cooking vegetables. My answers never really satisfied the students. 

One of the exceptions is rotmos (root mash), which Swedes prepare with care and pride. 

Parsnips, swede, turnips and Hamburg parsley are all used for the base, or indeed a combination of the four. For some reason that I’ve not understood, Hamburg parsley is particularly popular in Denmark and so inevitably it is often used in southern Sweden. I don’t often see it in supermarkets elsewhere, but if you have an allotment or space in your garden it is worth growing for a nice change.

Summary

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 55 minutes

Ingredients

1 kg (2 lb) Hamburg parsley, swede, parsnip or turnip

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 carrots (optional)

600 g (1¼ lb) floury potatoes

1-2 tbsp butter or margarine (optional)

Method

1. Peel the vegetables. Cut them into large evenly sized pieces, about 4 cm across.

2. Place the Hamburg parsley, swede, parsnip or turnip into a saucepan and cover with lightly salted water. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 30 minutes.

3. Add the carrots and simmer for another ten minutes.

4. Add the potatoes and let everything boil together for about 15 minutes, until the potatoes are soft, without disintegrating.

5. Drain the vegetables but keep the broth.

6. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or using a hand-held electric whisk. Whisk in some butter, if using, and then a little of the reserved broth until you have the right consistency to go with the rest of the meal. Have a taste and season with a little more salt, freshly ground black pepper and more butter, if desired.  

Tips

• Carrots are optional but are worth adding for a little extra colour and flavour.

• You can add some milk or even cream for a richer rotmos.
