Denmark now sends surplus sanitary napkins, medical equipment and respirators to needy countries such as Nepal, Iraq, northern Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro.
What is it that Nepal needs, and what is it that we can do without in Denmark of our own preparedness?

Here, Denmark sends 126 pallets to corona-affected Nepal – part of the aid consists of 26 respirators to the Nepalese hospitals, which have been donated by the Central Jutland Region.
Harvard Business Review analyzed behavioural data of 3,492 managers who were in a development program to become better coaches. HBRs goal was to identify the differences between average and great listeners. It compiled a list of characteristics that make managers climb the ranks to be the best kind of listeners for their employees.
Rather than staying silent during conversations, the best listeners engage in two-way dialogue, making suggestions, asking questions, and acting as a sounding board for the other person. Good listeners pay attention to non-verbal cues and keep the focus on the other person. If you’re naturally dominant with the drive to have control over your environment, be aware of your natural tendency to commandeer the conversation and avoid that behaviour.
The age group between 15 and 25 years simply has a completely different way of looking at life, and one of the more unfortunate is the lack of commitment. We also see a high level of indifference and a low level of commitment.
Mentioned at a meeting last week: “From several sides, discrimination is perceived as a bigger and growing problem, discrimination with a focus on age.

Experience obviously does not have the same value in Europe – as in Asia! Is it going in the wrong direction?”

I don’t know anyone greedier than the old man. Knowledge, money, power—he’d take everything he could.
Confidence follows action. It isn’t confidence that comes first, but taking action.
When we survey our lives and endeavours, we soon observe that almost the whole of our actions and desires is bound up with the existence of other human beings.
