A-kassans totala haveri

Alfakassan har totalt havererat. Alfakassan är den A-kassa som hanterar alla de som inte är med i ett fackförbund med egen akassa. Enligt besked idag handlägger de ärenden från mars(!!) vilket för de drabbade är fullständigt oacceptabelt.

Research proposal

The following document is my supplied research proposal to the University of Stockholm. Almost 20 years ago I had to leave my archaeology career as “there were no jobs” (there were, but company internal politics dictated there weren’t). Now, with the Corona-mess going on I’m looking to possibly complete my Ph D.

The story is based around the character Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) with a heavy emphasis on her off-on relationship with Alex Vause (Laura Prepon) and some of the inmates of prison who become their close friends, Nicky, Lorna and Red.
