This week in Europe, all eyes are on Greece and its new government.
News in Europe: Visit Kazakhstan!
Greetings, citizens, and let’s get straight to it. Before we head to Kazakhstan, let’s have a look at this week’s serious news.
Greetings, unicorns of the West, from Poland! It’s cloudy and humid, harvest season has begun, and since we’re a bit closer to the conflict, the news about Ukraine sounds a lot more worrying.
Greetings, citizens, from your friendly unicorn watching the news in Germany. I have to say though, they’re much the same depressing heap of hopelessness over here. Let’s get to it.
Citizens, I’m not often super patriotic, but this week I’m being openly German. In case anybody missed it, the most bizarre, unbelievable match of football ever happened on Tuesday, and while it wasn’t played in Europe, a certain European team completely destroyed Brazilian football.
Greetings, citizens! It’s all still sunshine and football where I am, but the news carries on.
Greetings, Persephoneers! Your regular News in Europe Unicorn, Karo, is still on vacation, and so you have me again. Let us take a look at the newsy bits that caught my interest this week, shall we?
Greetings, citizens! While nothing major has happened this past week, there are so many curious behind-the-scenes developments that I’m starting to suspect Europe might just be losing it. But onwards and upwards, friends, and let’s make the best of this:
Greetings, citizens! Things have been happening in Crimea, which is now part of Russia, or Ukraine is a bit smaller, whichever way you want to look at it. If you stay with me for all the serious news, I have a funny non-news-story from *whispers* The Daily Mail for you in the end. Oh yes.

Greetings, citizens! This last week has been all about Russia freaking everyone out. Let’s see if we can make some sense of it, shall we?
News in Europe: Blame Switzerland!
It’s back! So much has been going on lately over on this side of the Atlantic, it would be irresponsible to keep you all in the dark. Most of it is pretty scary/annoying stuff, but there might be some mild comic relief waiting right at the end. So let’s get on with it.
Friends, I lived in Spokane, Washington for seven years, where Cathy McMorris Rodgers kept getting reelected, while the Democratic party seemed to merely wring their hands and would run ineffectual candidates against her. After her barrage of campaign ads, we would then get her “surveys” in the mail asking what our “concerns” were, all with […]
On April 6, 2009, an earthquake occurred near L’Aquila, the capital of Italy’s Abruzzo region. Around 300 people died, with many more injured or left homeless. The earthquake destroyed the town, and its effects are still starkly visible today. On October 22nd, six scientists and a government official were sentenced to six years in prison […]
Book Review: Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
Let’s get one thing out of the way up front: Beautiful Ruins is an absolutely perfect book, and if you read any review that claims otherwise, then that reviewer is trying too hard to be a smug killjoy and they should not be trusted.
