India and Finland business

Hi!
Looking to make contact with people doing business in India, and/or doing business between India and Finland- in connection to a business seminar at the end of May.
Thanks.

5 yr old's English grammar - multilingual families

Hey, Can anyone give me some insight? Our 5 year old's English grammar has taken a turn. When she does past tense she's adding -ed to everything.... ' Yesterday I goed', 'I eated', 'I singed', 'I doed'. I'm a bit worried because she did past tense before without any problem. I just correct her now, ...

Re: suim-suits and saunas- swimming halls

Thanks for the replies.(Ditto on the chlorine and ditto on the shower). It's all sorted now. The ones who did not want to go in the nude could not get the symbol as it is only given by the invalid associations or cancer associations or the like for their members, but they got permission to use their...

Re: suim-suits and saunas- swimming halls

Yes, yes, I know about the chlorine issue.

Shyness is not the issue. Our swimming hall here said that one should get the sign themselves, but the person at the reception couldn't give any advice of where to get it.

suim-suits and saunas- swimming halls

In Finland at the swimming hall we generally have a shower and go to sauna in the nude. On the information boards there's a notice that ' The bearer of this sign, is allowed to wear their suim-suit in the sauna'. My question is, where do people get that sign and on what grounds do they get it? Thanks!

Re: Pregnancy in Finland

but my understanding is that vacuum packed fish (i.e. the sort that doesn't have to be refrigerated) is just fine. On the other hand EVIRA lists vacuum packed fish as high risk food (regarding listeria ): "Listerian suhteen riskielintarvikkeita ovat sellaisenaan syötävät tuotteet, joilla on pitkä s...

Re: Pregnancy in Finland

I suppose your midwife meant that you shouldn't eat gravad, cold-smoked or hot-smoked fish that has been vaccum-packed because of the risk of listeriosis. Salmon or rainbow trout is okay as pikeperch or vendace or any other lake fish. I'd steer away from fish from the Baltic sea. I make ginger tea u...

Re: understanding a road sign

That sign means no parking between 1.11-30.4. At other times of the year, parking is allowed for 4 hours and you need to use the disc.

A no waiting sign has two red crosses going through the circle btw.

Re: Mosquitoes - Citronella

I've ordered anti mosquito patches from Dermosil www.dermosil.fi, hyttyslaastari in Finnish. They've worked pretty well, you just take a patch out of the packet and stick it to your clothes and no mosquitoes. I like these patches since you don't have to spray anything onto your skin.
