My arancini workshop was delicious fun.

Food has been a great medium when bringing us all together

arancini
Our set up for the arancini workshop. What is not pictured is the egg for dipping and the bowl of water for moistening your hands. We learned that you can get creative with the fillings but the bolognese sauce is traditional.

I can’t believe that we will be leaving our little slice of paradise known as “the bubble” to move back to Stockholm. Don’t get me wrong. I am so looking forward to getting back to Sweden and I plan to take the Best of Britain with me.

That’s me on the far right next to our instructor who is walking us through making a smaller size arancini ball with our hands. She also showed us how to use the arancini mold.

Part of that best is the love of food and how well it works as part of a winning formula for making friends. Especially international friends because food is a great translator and equalizer.

Here I am on the left cutting a piece of mozzarella cheese to put in my arancini mold.

I loved all of the fillings we had. So many that it was hard to choose.

They absolutely must be deep fried.

The finished product!

I’m smack dab in the middle on the back row smiling brightly. Seeing all of us together makes me smile brightly again.

SI launches Swedishness – a podcast explaining Sweden

Swedish phenomena like fika and parental leave may fascinate and/or confuse non-Swedes. The podcast ‘Swedishness’ aims to give new perspectives on all things Swedish. Released on 27 January.

‘I think many people around the world have an image of Sweden that is positive, but pretty shallow,’ host Kattis Ahlström says. ‘Many probably still associate our country with blonde people and an extensive welfare system. Sweden is so much more than that.’

Together with co-host Philip O’Connor, an Irish journalist who has lived in Sweden for 18 years, Kattis Ahlström interviews Swedish and non-Swedish experts. The podcast is in English and will be released in seven episodes about everything from parental leave and digital technology to Swedish tradition, Swedes and happiness.

An official Sweden podcast

‘Swedishness’ has been produced by the Swedish Institute in cooperation with production company Nice One. SI always strives to find new channels and formats in which to communicate Sweden to a global audience. With ‘Swedishness’, Sweden gets its first official podcast about Sweden and Swedes, about known and unknown Swedish phenomena.

‘The pod format is optimal to communicate a deeper and balanced image of Sweden that both engages and amuses,’ SI project manager Emma Randecker says. ‘We want to show Sweden as modern and open, an individualistic yet humane society.’

The three first episodes are launched on SoundCloud and iTunes on 27 January 2017. After that, one episode will be released every Friday for the four following weeks.

Find the podcast:

27 January:
#1 Swedish parental leave – as gender egalitarian as it gets?
#2 Will Sweden be first to be run by robots?
#3 Swedes – the happiest or loneliest people in the world?

3 February:
#4 The world’s oldest free press. So what?

10 February:
#5 Do Swedes actually do any work?

17 February:
#6 Is the Swedish start-up scene as hot as they say?

24 February:
#7 Midsummer and the Swedish sin

The American Stockholm Expat Tax Return

Source: Taxes for Expats

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
No matter where you reside – you must file. All US citizens and Green Card holders must (if they meet minimum filing thresholds) file an annual tax return reporting their worldwide income.

While all must file – most don’t owe. The good news is that most expats don’t end up paying any taxes to the IRS. There are many tax deductions available which allow taxpayers to deduct more than $100,000 from their taxable income. But – they must continue to file. Failure to do so can lead to penalties.

Forbes-Sweden Heads The Best Countries For Business For 2017

Sweden Heads The Best Countries For Business For 2017

Sweden for business

Source: Forbes.com

Sweden moves up four spots to the top of the charts for the first time (Sweden ranked No. 17 in 2006). Over the past two decades the country has undergone a transformation built on deregulation and budget self-restraint with cuts to Sweden’s welfare state.

Sweden’s government shrank jobless and disability benefits to encourage employment. The lower benefits allowed for tax cuts. The inheritance tax was scrapped in 2005 and the wealth tax was canned two years later. A new bill lowered the energy tax on data centers by 97% effective Jan. 1.

Taxes are still high relative to the rest of the developed world, but taxes paid as a percent of profit are down eight percentage points over the past decade and the country’s tax burden rank in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business has improved 11 spots during the time.
