EXPLORE #496 OF NOV. 5, 2012



Today is election day here in Seoul. Our subway stop has been absolute chaos of late with coordinated singing and dancing to endorse the candidates (only in Korea). To say I'll be relieved when it's over is a vast understatement. Alas here is a shot I took last evening to depict the hectic pace around here.

I read this light hearted piece about our election today and it did make me laugh.


An explanation of how our Election turned out.


So the Conservatives won...but lost ...Labour lost ....but won....the SNP won and lost in Scotland but still won and the Conservatives won in Scotland but lost.. .the government was Tory but now can't be even though it is still and they need to make some Irish people Tory so they can be in charge even though they were and still are...UKIP lost but because of Brexit they already won ...18 Independent won but didn't win because they don't have a party so they lost but are now MPs so they won ...the winner, Theresa May, is being told to resign because she didn't win and she won't because she won even tho she lost...


All seems perfectly straight forward to me. In fact clear as mud.

Today (sunday) has been Election day here in Sweden and I have been voting and up following the results which are very even, so it is hard to tell what our government will look like.


Check out this short article and see why:

tulad ng inaasahan, sangkatutak na election kalat ang bumati sa akin sa lugar na pagbobotohan ko. sangkatutak na papel, poster at banners ng mga mukha ng kandidato na para bang nagmamalasakit sa akin.



the Election 2010 Series is in chronological order...please view them accordingly if you have the time...thanks)

I don't vote, on account of my Englishness (not to mention a crippling lack of enthusiasm for politicians), but it's hard not to be vaguely interested about what might happen in America tonight.

The billboards go up and promptly get ripped down.

Elections to the European Parliament will be held in the 27 member states of the European Union (EU) between 4 and 7 June 2009. 736 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) will be elected by proportional representation to represent some 500,000,000 Europeans, making these the biggest trans-national elections in history.


It had initially been foreseen that the Treaty of Lisbon would have entered into force by the time of these elections, making them the first to be held under its provisions. However, primarily because of the failure of the referendum in Ireland, the framework established by the Treaty of Nice will be used again. Amongst other differences, the number of MEPs to be returned depends upon which rules are in effect: while 736 MEPs will be elected under the Nice rules, this number would have increased to 751 if the Lisbon Treaty were in force.

Tomorrow will be the Parliement, oh, sorry, Parliament election, in Taiwan.

Honestly I couldn't see any points for it, neither for the country or the people.


For many years, two major parties have been fighting for their political benefits/profits by wasting Taiwan people's lifes and money. It really sucks.


I don't expect those new Parliament members gonna change everything under the table, but from my deepest voices, I want to tell them please, please at least think for those people, like those students gonna graduate from the universities, just do something for their everyday lifes, from painfully earning average wages under USD10,000 annually.


Otherwise, it's gonna be just another dark day for Taiwanese people.

Croatia holds a snap election tomorrow, following the fall of the government after a vote of no-confidence about 2 months ago

This truck had a UAW Kerry sticker on the driver's side and a Bush sticker on the passenger side. Couldn't get close enough to get a clearer picture.

It'll be interesting to see what smart aleck comments show up on this one.

I voted for Obama, as you can see.

I happened to be staying in our nation's capital on the day of our national election and fog was forecast.... and fog it was.... except in this location. Commonwealth Avenue bridges leading to parliament house and the flag on top. Forgot to bring my filters so the foreground water is sharp but with the fog dissipated the balloon had just taken off which made up for it. Bit of a rush as the balloon was starting to move quickly but I just managed this one before 24mm was not wide enough. Ended up a nice balance I think.

a/k/a rockefeller plaza. as the electoral votes come in, blue & red banners will rise up the side of the building for obama and mccain. i wish i could have stayed longer. there was quite a bit of excitement in the air. but my tummy was grumbling and my feet were hurting, so i thought i would come home and watch the results on tv.


not too many results were in yet when i was there, but the first 1% of kentucky and indiana came up on the screen. there was silence when it showed mccain winning that 1% of kentucky and a huge cheer when it showed obama winning that 1% of indiana. go hoosiers!

Como, 2 Febbraio - 4 Marzo 2018. Trentuno foto scattate a partire dall'inizio della campagna elettorale sino al giorno delle votazioni politiche nazionali (compreso). Quasi surreale lo scarso uso di manifesti; praticamente nessuna scritta politiche sui muri, mentre si nota la presenza di piccoli adesivi, attaccati prevalentemente sui pali. Mi sono ispirato al "Saggio sulla Lucidità" di Saramago nel pubblicare le bandiere italiana ed europea all'inizio ed alla fine della serie.

Yesterday was election day here in Finland, and what a day for democracy it was. Wait, rewind. I'm not sure if democracy works anymore.


Haha, OK, I'm being only semi-serious. Still, yesterday was scary. Finland came very, very close to voting in a far right party, the Perussuomalaiset (or 'True Finns'). A few years ago they had just a few percent of the vote - this time, they got almost 20%.


For some, like this guy here, the thought of living in a country run by a racist, homophobic, euro-sceptic government proved too awful to be true. The only option: suicide.


On a lighter note, the Perussuomalaiset came in third, but still, they now have plenty of seats in parliament, and the coming months will tell what effect this has...




From Wikipedia:


True Finns (Finnish: Perussuomalaiset Swedish: Sannfinländarna, abbreviated PS) is a populist political party in Finland, founded in 1995 following the dissolution of the Finnish Rural Party. The head of the movement is Timo Soini.


In the 2011 Finnish parliamentary election True Finns have according to the polls become a serious challenger to the traditional ruling parties. The party combines left-wing economic policies with strongly conservative social values. Even though True Finns is a Finnish-based movement with only newly emerging international connections, it has been compared with the rise of the Tea Party movement in the United States and other similar populist movements in Europe, critical of globalism and the well-connected power elites.


Please note, the above excerpt does not do justice to show how racist and awful this party actually is.

The United Nations Mission Haiti (MINUSTAH) works in support of the Haitian government in the preparations for the upcoming countrywide elections scheduled for November 20, 2016. MINUSTAH supplied ground support, air support and security support to deliver personnel and elections materials around the country.
