A campaign launched by a Swedish authority which provides information about sex, health and relationships to under-25-year-olds has been censored by social media platforms.
UMO is a government-run website that provides information on sex, health and relationships to young people in Sweden aged between 13 and 25.
It launched the 'Come prepared' campaign to raise awareness of the importance of contraception and educating young people about condom usage. As part of the campaign, the organization created videos demonstrating how to put on a condom (using a dildo as a model) and in order to reach its target audience of young people, shared them to its channels on social media in several languages.
But on Facebook, Instagram (owned by Facebook), and Snapchat, these information videos were completely blocked, as first reported by SVT Nyheter. On YouTube meanwhile, a lower age-limit of 18 years for viewers was introduced, meaning viewers were greeted with a message warning the content "may be inappropriate for some viewers", citing the site's community guidelines under which explicit sexual content is not allowed.

Sberbank PJSC last month was the biggest victim as Russians rushed for dollars amid fears of new sanctions against state-controlled banks. It lost $1.2 billion of foreign-exchange retail deposits, according to Bloomberg calculations based on data from Bank of Russia and Moscow-based analytics company Frank RG. Total outflows in the sector reached $1.5 billion. Since the start of the year, Russia’s largest bank has lost almost 10 percent of retail deposits denominated in currencies other than the ruble. The figure for the sector as a whole is 5.9 percent. The flows should be seen as “a result of managed evolution of the balance sheet,” the bank said in an emailed response to questions. Around 29 percent of Sberbank’s $324 billion total customer deposits is denominated in foreign currency.

|Elsevier journal agreement cancelled
Elsevier journal agreement cancelledhttp://www.ub.gu.se/aktuellt/detaljvy.xml?id=2962
JUN 25, 2018
The University Library's journal agreement with Elsevier expires on 30 June 2018. The Bibsam Consortium at the Royal Library [of Sweden] has decided not to renew the agreement, as Elsevier cannot meet the requirements for open access. The negotiations with Elsevier will continue.
Since 1996, the Bibsam Consortium negotiates license agreements for electronic journals and databases on behalf of Swedish universities, colleges and research institutes. After 20 years it has been decided that the agreement with Elsevier regarding e-journals will not be renewed. This decision is about meeting the government's target for immediate open access by 2026 and about switching from a subscription-based to an open access publishing system.
The requirements include:
- Immediate open access to all articles published in Elsevier journals by researchers affiliated with participating organisations
- Reading access for participating organisations to all articles in Elsevier’s 1,900 journals
- A sustainable price model that enables a transition to open access
Swedish researchers publish about 4000 articles annually in Elsevier's journals. In 2017, about SEK 13 million was paid in publishing costs, in addition to the SEK 120 million that the participating organizations paid in license costs to read Elsevier's journals.

Chinese [company] Geely bought on Friday [Feb 16, 2018] shares in the German [car/truck manufacturer company] Daimler. Daimler is a competitor to the truck manufacturer company AB Volvo, but also to the car manufacturer Volvo Cars.
Why does Geely buy shares in Daimler when they are already a major shareholder in the both Volvo companies?
- Geely is share-wise the largest shareholder in AB Volvo and major shareholder in Volvo Cars. So many wonder exactly the same thing. It is incomprehensible from traditional business theories. If Geely has some gigantic plan to be able to coordinate the companies, the antitrust authorities both in EU and USA will set sticks in the wheels.
Daimler is no. 1 manufacturer of heavy trucks in the world, AB Volvo is no. 2.

Göran Persson: Jag utesluter inte ett nyval
Göran Persson. Age: 69.
Professions: Farmer, professional manager, consultant and speaker. Former prime minister (1996-2006) and party leader (Social Democrats), Sweden.( more )
How big is the threat from Russia?
- One should not underestimate the ambitions of large states to intervene the affairs of other states. But the absolutely most dangerous is if we isolate Russia, because they should also develop. The most dangerous for us is a poor Russia that is filled by internal contradictions and conflicts. I would like to see that both USA and EU go out for Russia in a more meaningful dialog than today. Otherwise there is risk that Russia is driven in a direction where it ends in a solid alliance with China. There is nothing that means improvement for our part.( more )
