Today Queen Sonja of Norway opened the Nor-Fishing 2014. The Queen
toured the exhibition area, where over 500 vendors are represented. The exhibitors represent shipyards, suppliers of fishing gear, engines and deck machinery, marine electronics, fish finding, navigation and communication equipment, machinery and equipment for fish processing, cold storage equipment, packaging and transport, rescue and safety, environmental , fishing ports and services.

The Queen’s speech during the event

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am not a “fisherperson”, but I love sailing along our long Norwegian coastline and experience how people live and survive on the outer islands.

I am really amazed by the energy and courage the people show in these often scarcely populated places. Fisheries are of course most important. I meet people from the far north to the deep south, and I am always proud to see how creative people really are.

Two years ago I was in the Lofoten islands, where I observed and filmed fishermen, fishing mackerel. But the fishing boat was not local; it belonged to an island further south. People in northern Norway are not familiar with fishing mackerel, because the species has NOT been there before. Something is obviously changing! It told me that we must be aware of changes in our environment.

We have challenges – common challenges that must be solved, not only here in Norway, but globally. Nor-Fishing has a leading role – also internationally – and offers a vital venue for addressing these important issues.

We are now 7 billion people on the planet. And the population is growing rapidly. All these people need food. Part of the solution to this challenge lies in the oceans. But in order to protect the resources in the oceans also for future generations, we need sustainable management. Education, knowledge, and good solutions are vital if the world is to succeed in harvesting the resources so important for everyone. We have to act wisely!

In closing, I would like to draw the attention to another fact which also is a sign of a changing world: Women are now increasingly more important actors in the industry. I would like to point out that it is of course purely coincidental, - and certainly not a “feminist coup d’état” - that women dominate today’s official opening. But as it happens, I am accompanied here today by three women in leading positions, – namely:

Minister of Fisheries - Elisabeth Aspaker, Mayor of Trondheim  - Rita Ottervik and Director of Fisheries and Chairman of the Nor-Fishing Foundation -  Liv Holmefjord.

This was probably unthinkable when the first Nor-Fishing exhibition was arranged in 1960!

But – we have not forgotten our men!

For more than 50 years Nor-Fishing has been an important venue for the fisheries industry, for the exchange of news, technology – and not least – for the sector to meet, formand strengthen partnerships.

I wish you all a fruitful, interesting and enjoyable time here in Trondheim.

With these words, it is a great pleasure for me to declare Nor-Fishing 2014 officially open!

White dude in St. Louis named Kevin Miner was wanted for burglary.

He eluded police officers until they conducted a search of a resident’s home and found him.

He attacked both officers, breaking one cop’s hand. The media even alludes to Miner being forced to “fight back” against the police because of how he was being apprehended!

Miraculously, the cops managed not to punch him in the face repeatedly, put him in a chokehold, or shoot him six times including once in the face and once in the head.

He, in fact, barely had a scratch on him.

Imagine that.

The next time someone says to you:

"BUT IT’S NOT ABOUT RACE (Patent Pending)!"

Throw your tea dead in their face Dominique Deveraux-style and pump on away from them like Naomi Campbell.

[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family.  A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]

I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.

it’s really interesting seeing death portrayed as a woman 

Especially a a nurturer rather than a destroyer
