When I went outside to the bike today I heard this helicopter circling around the city. Had no idea why. And when I arrived at the institution there were 5 police cars outside and the way to the city center was cordoned off. Thought it was some kind of robbery or something like that going on. But no, it was due to the Swedish Democrats giving their public speech in Uppsala. Sick. They even searched peoples bags and stuff if you wanted to pass on through. There have been so many riots the last few days, with people throwing firecrackers and eggs at them. Jeez, just let them give their speech. This is a democracy. If you don't like them, just ignore them. But I guess that this happens in a country where it's ok to be a communist and left-wing activist, but where you're a racist if you wanna raise a discussion around the number of immigrants a country accepts.
I also have question. Anyone who wanna share some recipes? I've been eating spaghetti for the last week and I'm getting kinda tired of it. :P So I need some ideas for food that's not too expensive, easy to cook and tastes good.
I also had the idea of each time I write something I'll share one thing I've learned in the last days. It's good for me to remember what I've been studying, but also fun for you to learn more how conflicts and conflict resolution work.
Info of the day:
There are 4 common ways parties handle conflict.
Avoiding - you stay passive, ignore the other party
Yielding - you settle for less then you originally wanted
Contending - don't care for others interests, only your win
Problem Solving - you try to negotiate so both parties have max gain from it
e.g. If A attacks B in a contending way and B avoids, A usually win and gain what they first wanted
or if A and B don't communicate due to mistrust they might want different things than they first thought (eg A want land, B more freedom) they can settle with problem solving.
