EU clowns

Hidden in the health section of Saturday's Times was the news that the Finnish city of Tampere is employing clowns to boost the health of gloomy council workers, using £17,000 of EU cash. Kirsi Koski, the city of Tampere's personnel chief, told Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat (English) that clowns will make workers laugh - and "laughter is the core of wellbeing."

Nice to see the Structural Funds aren't only run by EU clowns but spent on them too..

My name is Lucia Martin and I am a PhD student at the University of Basel, Switzerland.

I have just started a blog about the leading judgments of the European Court of Justice, the Court of First Instance, the Civil Service Tribunal and the European Court of Human Rights. Its main purpose is to summarize the recent EU case law, in order to help students and EU law researchers in their work.

Would you be interested in link exchange? My link is: http://www.eucaselaw.info/

Best regards,
