Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Frank's Story Index

by Frank Schnittger Tue Nov 20th, 2018 at 07:58:29 PM EST

Sorry, this story index is seriously out of date but I never seem to get the time to bring it back up to date (besides which I have hit the limit of Eurotrib story size and have lost quite a few of the entries). Will have to break it up to separate stories as time permits!

The 585 articles I have posted on the European Tribune since Wed Nov 28th. 2007 are grouped somewhat arbitrarily under the 13 headings below with the latest listed first.

1. Human Rights (38)
2. Health care and Covid-19 (16)
3. Energy, Climate Change, Transport and the Environment (15)
4. Irish Economy (31)
5. Irish Politics (75)
6. Irish European Referenda and Elections (43)
7. Brexit (174)
8. The EU and the Eurozone (50)
9. US Politics (65)
10. Global economics, politics, foreign policy and war. (15)
11. Sport (17)
12. Personal and Artistic Topics (28)
13. The European Tribune, Blogging and the Internet (15)
14. Just having a laugh (5)

Stories are listed only once even though many could have been listed under several headings. For direct access to a story please click on the titles in blue below.

thanks Frank. If I did it i'd have two topics, Trans and nonsense.

I had to juggle things around a bit and some diaries don't easily fit into any of the categories - and of course a tagging system would allow a diary to appear under more than one heading.  But the purpose is to make it easier to find a diary and link to it and I wanted to keep things simple.  

Going through the list was an interesting retrospective on what themes have developed and how my thoughts and writing style have evolved.  I suspect that if you went through your back-catalogue you would find a few more interesting themes and sub themes and perhaps also a development of your views on certain topics.

You were, of course, always right at the time you stated those views!

I once commented to the speaker at a paramedical seminar that TLC, tender loving care, means thin layer chromatography to a biochemist. I suspect he thought just what you wrote above, but didn't say it.

You're clearly a dangerous pinko commie pragmatist.

I am reminded of an article by Isaac Asimov which started with a joke on how to spot a[n english-speaking] Chemist. I believe there were three tests of which I remember two. The first one is to read unionize aloud. The Chemist will syllabicize it as un-ion-ize rather than union-ize.

The second test is to define mole which to a Chemist is not a blind furry burrowing animal, but Avogadro's number of particles.

You forget some people in the trans community talk about the cisgendered as well, so that was not off-topic.

you're prolific writer i should say. never suspected you penned so much though almost nothing from my part of the world. it seems you spent awfully long time before your MS Word(?). thanks, i've checked some diaries (like on rugby career) and liked them.

A couple of short trips to Malaysia and Thailand don't even constitute that thin layer of knowledge and expertise that it takes to justify me having a rant about something or other far eastern.  However it is an omission I hope to remedy in the next few years...

You lie, Frank! I find no trace of your home page here, unless the diary index IS your home page. :-)

Nice job, BTW, and a very good idea. I sometimes want to refer to my own diaries and they are often on the second page of diaries. It is awkward.
