Good night,

Although you haven’t forgotten to make time to exercise, do you still spend the rest of the day sitting in front of the TV and computer? According to the definition of scientists, such people are classified as ” moving sofa potatoes ” – a study conducted in Finland shows that even if you/you work hard for 30 minutes a day, it may not be enough to eliminate the sedentary causes. There are health risks such as blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood lipids, but as long as the frequency of getting up and moving is slightly increased, the adverse effects of prolonged sitting can be alleviated. (Is it time to stand up and walk away after reading this?)

Sweden held parliamentary elections on the 9th. According to the results of the vote count, the right-wing coalition led the left-wing camp led by Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson by a slight margin of 3 seats. The first female Prime Minister in Sweden’s history who took office at the end of last year also announced her resignation.

Anderson’s Social Democrats have long dominated Swedish politics. Although it is still the largest party after this election, the outside world is paying more attention to the extreme populism, strong anti-immigration stance, and the slogan “Make Sweden Safe Again”. The rise of the right-wing Sweden Democrats to become the second largest party in Parliament, or even the largest party on the right.

The focus of this election is immigration, energy prices, and gang violence. Although center-right parties such as the Moderates Party have previously stated that they will not cooperate with the Sweden Democrats, what will a “right-turned” Swedish government be? With such a face, the world waited with bated breath.

out of gender

Just this weekend, the annual Euro Pride parade, an annual LGBTQ event, was scheduled to take place in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. After the demonstration, President Aleksandar Vučić announced the cancellation of parades and series of activities based on safety factors, and the police even issued a direct ban.

Local LGBT activists said that no matter what the name is, it is estimated that 10,000 people will still take to the streets on the day of the parade. The suspension of the parade just highlights the need for a European Pride parade in Serbia-in 2001, Belgrade was the first in history. A gay parade took place, and participants were violently attacked; today, more than two decades later, social attitudes are not much different.

I can’t be the only one who knows
