Scandinavia travel guide The word “Scandinavia” evokes many images. Endless fir forests, awe-inspiring fjords, wilderness, and lately, perhaps, crime fiction and noir thrillers such as Borgen, Wallander and The Killing. It’s all these things, of course, but this hardly does justice to the region’s vastness and diversity. To the North is the Arctic Circle, where polar bears roam, the summer sun lasts 24 hours, but an implacable dark descends in a winter lit, if you’re lucky, by cosmic northern lights. Although not in Scandinavia, Finland, where Russia's cultural orbit is felt, also has a Nordic feel with vast expanses of lake and forest inhabited by wild bears stretch beyond sight.

Here's Why the Banksy Movie Is a Banksy Prank In the summer of 2008, I saw an article in the LA Weekly about a massive street art show mounting in L.A. named Life is Beautiful. On the outset the show seemed ambitiously cool. The 125,000-square-foot show was being staged in CBS' abandoned Columbia Square Studios, a massive modern office complex where I Love Lucy was filmed. The artist, Mr. Brainwash or MBW, was an up-and-comer who had already plastered the city in his likeness, as a guy holding a video camera. But something here seemed off. The whole thing, it's clear now, was an intricate prank being pulled on all of us by Banksy, who has never publicly revealed his identity, with Fairey as his accomplice. The new "documentary" Exit Through the Gift Shop, "directed" by Banksy, and "co-directed" by Shepard Fairey, takes that prank one step further. Ostensibly, Mr. Guetta is the biggest give-away here. Which leads me to the other problem. Additionally, we're spoonfed bizarre, effusive comments in the film about how famous Mr.

Life and death in Aleppo (PHOTOS) ALEPPO, Syria — Their names were Issa, Ahmed and Sheik Mahmoud Qasim. They were fathers and brothers. They were students, teachers and laborers. And, last week, they were all killed by tank fire. They are not alone. Headlines that track the numbers of dead are easy to pass over when they are so frequent. In this video and photo series, GlobalPost senior correspondent Tracey Shelton tells the story of Issa, Ahmed and Qasim in the days before, and then at the very moment, they are killed in their back-alley post on the front lines of Aleppo, Syria. On the morning of their death, the men joked as they cleaned their post from a tank attack the day before. As the cloud of smoke engulfed the street, one man took cover, frantically waiting for the others to emerge through the dust and debris. After a few minutes of disorientation, a vehicle arrived to transport the bodies. New fighters came to take their posts.
