Uncalled for comments I agree, however I recently read an article regarding people seeing others negatively I found it quite interesting.

A recent study in the US by Prof Dustin Wood, found that people that described another person in a positive light shows how satisfied they are with their own life.
In contrast a negative perception of others are linked to higher levels of narcississm and anti social behaviour." The tendency to see people negatively indicates a greater likelihood of depression and personality disorders"

The study was in the Journal of Personality and Social Behaviour.

Thank you marfre I agree totally. I am just tired of all the garbage being spewed around. The ones about the children are the ones that trouble me the most.

Thank you for the explanation Marfre. That certainly explains a number of rather common nature in this thread ;) I suppose we should just feel pity where pity is due!

Frederik has patronages that cover his love of sailing, and Mary has patronages that cover shopping.
When they shop or sail for personal use, it is in there own time and does not clash with royal duties.
Plus I never said anything about shopping for Mary, so why quote my post?

Frederik has named a new frigate today. In the Odense Staalskibsvaerft on the island of Funen.

A bit of info from Fyens Stiftstidende: https://www.fyens.dk/article/1720303:Busine...-foerste-fregat
https://www.fyens.dk/article/1720958:Busine...-fregatten-navn

Frederik unveiled the name of the new frigate, Iver Huitfeldt. And as this is the first of three new frigates, this class will be known as the Iver Huitfeldt class.
At the same time her coat of arms was unveiled as well. All the coat of arms on the navy ships are approved by Queen Margrethe.
In keeping with an old tradition the largest and most powerful ships in the Danish navy are named after naval heroes.

The building of these three frigates is a part of the ongoing transition of the Danish military, this time the navy, from national defence to operating far away from home.
A typical mission for a ship of the Iver Huitfeldt class could be enforcing a naval blocade or hunting for pirates off the coast of Africa, which is indeed what the Danish is supposed to aid African nations in doing in the next few years. Mainly in helping to build up a local and efficient coast guard but also in preventing pirate attacks in international waters. Currently about 10 % of the world's commercial shipping originate in some way or another in Denmark.
The problem with pirate hunting as seen off Somalia, is that it has a limited effect. Unless the pirates are caught redhanded, there actually very little the various nations warships can, or rather is allowed to, do. They sink the odd mothership from time to time, but most suspected pirates are turned lose again, because it's too much trouble to try them at a court.
The local coast guard (from Somaliland) is much more feared and basically much more efficient, but their resources are hopelessly limited.
Unless the warships are allowed to take much more firm action, they are, in my opinion, basically little more than armed cruise ships. But few politicians are willing to take on that responsibillity.
Supporting a local coast guard with money and equipment would be much cheaper and, alas, much more efficient.

According to BT online, Frederik will represent the royal family on Friday, at the burial of one of the fathers of the Greenlandic home rule, Jonathan Motzfeldt. At the same time, a memorial service will be held for the well-known Greenlandic politician in Copenhagen where queen Margrethe will be present.

Here's a short clip of Fred launching the vessel.

Tell me, is he actually naming it? I thought that was an honour usually reserved for ladies, or is that only civilian vessels?

The name of the frigate has been known for some time now.

Frederik was only unveiling her name-sign and coat of arms.

I have to say, I like the fact he's not dressed in black.

Harold 11-07-2010 09:50 AM

He's wearing his medals on a sweatshirt?

Sternchen 11-07-2010 09:53 AM

It is not a sweatshirt. It is part of the national greenlandic dress!

Correct. An anorak.

They were popular as cold weather clothing in the 50 and 60's. Perhaps you remember them? I had a blue one as a small child.

Sternchen 11-07-2010 10:26 AM

They were also very popular in the 70s and 80s :)

Oops. No offense intended. It just looked like a sweatshirt to me. I'll call my eye doctor tomorrow!
