None of that is what I asked for. I asked what are they doing specifically. You just supplied more talking points, but I'll burst the bubble anyway.

Norway is a uniform country. Meaning, if you immigrate to Norway, you do things the Norwegian way. There is no taking your culture with you. They also have very strict immigration laws and there's a cap on how many asylum seekers they'll take in. When they take in asylum seekers, they put them in rural areas and they're expected to assimilate. You won't see a China Town or Little Italy in Norway.

Again, all of this is very easy to do when your country's population is less than New York City (not state, just the city).

If your such a fan of Norway, you should move there. Only problem would be that they'd probably turn you away since you don't have any skills they're clamoring for and you don't own a large business.

Must be nice to control who crosses your borders without being called names... Or is Norway racist too?

He couldn't migrate to Norway. He doesn't meet their requirements.

I looked up some Norway information. They are a very rich country because of their offshore oil production.. Unlike the United states with trillions in debt, Norway has an estimated 1 trillion surplus. Different economic factors equals different politics.

According to Fox News the Colorado governor commuted his sentence to 10 years. He’ll be out in 2026 with good behavior.

Relatives of people he killed still have a chance to get him in prison.

It's quite amusing when people point to a country like Norway, and the "Happiness" reports, financial success, etc, etc..

"The U.S. could learn from Norway!"

*Norway, of course, is one of the whitest countries in the world. It’s residents are 83 percent Norwegian, who are ethnic North Germanic people, and another 8 percent is European.*

Norway is so happy and doing so well! LOL

Not sure 'WHY' we are still on THIS part, but ... The Swedes & Norwegians are 'pretty.' I shall concur. I still prefer dark haired, brown eyed guys, haha! (And my son is Blonde & Blue like G'town!) LoLoL.. And Daughter is a redhead, green eyed gal. We are a 'MUTT' family, I suppose, haha!

SO anywho... back to the 'topic' sort of .. what think y'all of THIS?

Language Barriers in Trucking.

AGAIN, the ONLY reason I stepped into this thread, was the LACK OF ... (WAIT FOR IT ...) an ESL course, as a MANDATE for a CDL in the USA!

Peace, always. . . .

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Anne, a mandatory ESL course is not needed. There are quite a few non-native speakers of English whose comnand of this language have a good enough. What is needed though, is a simple test - and I am sure that people who need an ESL course will not pass it and therefore will not be eligible to get a CDL.

Andrey, maybe not a full one. Maybe an 'abbreviated?' I know, you and our mod, Daniel B. are of Russian descent, and I laud you. I took ONE CLASS in High School for a College credit (overachiever I am/was) ... and I switched (back) to Spanish. I couldn't get it. Nada. Daughter took French, and I tried to learn & help her study. I stayed up until 0500 too many times.. to put her on the bus by 0630. I didn't GET it. Wasn't ashamed to SAY that .. I . Didn't .. GET IT! Why do these training companies that ARE of a non ESL just rush their 'students' THROUGH?

Maybe that's how THEY feel? I don't know. Spanish (Spanglish) and English ARE moderately similar, IMHO. The gender conjugates suk, but .. other than that. . . ? I'm not sticking up for the guy, I'm just saying. The FMCSA let HIS company TRAIN HIM ... without the proper knowledge of the ESL.

And again . . . "The Court is in Session, the Verdict is in . . . no Appeal on the docket today, ... " et al.

Too many CDL mills are coming back. Do you remember ... LOBOS Interstate Systems?

Better thread: Lobos Interstate Services...

Interestingly ENOUGH, ... They are back. Right. In. My. Back. Yard. I can't EVEN post a link, haha! Look up LoGos trucking, in Romulus Michigan; a 'terminal/training facility' in Toledo.

Seriously, y'all...... I still believe language is IMPORTANT.

Tom's niece, Michelle, age 49, is DEAF. She is a librarian at Kenyon State. Here's HER creation. Other languages NEED TRAINED back to forth. I'm still working on ASL myself. It's a challenge, but it's free.

ASL ... FOR FREE.

Best to all, always.. just me.
