Mother’s Graham Bread

Recipe: Mors Grov Brod (Mother’s Graham Bread)

Clean, Quiet Construction Sites? In Oslo, Yes

In 2019, Oslo adopted a new “zero emission” policy to curb the pollution traditionally belched out by big construction machinery at the city’s many work sites.

New Norwegian Passport

Norway to Introduce New Passports

The decision to create a new version of the passport was mainly to increase its security elements, making it more difficult to forge.
