FIFA says Georgia safe for World Cup qualifiers

Finland is having some problems with high rates of suicide, heavy drinking, and domestic violence, something the leaders of the country want to address immediately since the most current shooting spree.

I’ve heard of their high suicide rate, a rate which has decreased over time as education on, and treatment of, depression has increased.

These rampages are worrisome. Finland sells guns to people as young a 15, and at least 40 percent of all households own guns.

It will be interesting to see how Finland deals with a situation which is coming close to our problem here in the United States.
