Ärkebiskopen bojkottar Akademien: Sveriges ärkebiskop Antje Jackelén kommer inte att delta i Svenska Akademiens traditionsenliga högtidssammankomst den 20 december. "Efter allt som varit och utifrån hur Akademien och några ledamöter har profilerat sig kan jag inte uttrycka min solidaritet genom att delta som tidigare år", skriver Jackelén till Kulturnyheterna. 2018 har varit ett tungt år för Akademien. Årets litteraturpris är inställt och det är fortfarande oklart om det blir ett pris 2019. Ett flertal ledamöter har hoppat av sina uppdrag.

     
An evening in memory of Suberu: They trickled in one by one but they all came. They came to spend an evening in memory of the late Suberu Salam. There were tributes galore all testifying to the central role the deceased had occupied in the African community and in the lives of many of those who spoke of him. Mrs Ladi Suberu gave a moving tribute as she thanked everybody for all they had done for the family. Salami Suberu passed away on 4th October 2018 and was burried on October 11th in the Muslim section of S:t Bodvids begravningsplats, Huddinge, according to Islamic rights. An adua was held for him at Kista where the traditional Muslim prayers were said. The memorial night was the last of the events to mark the passing away of one of the pillars of the Ghanaian and African community in Stockholm. All three occasions were very well attended. Read report, tributes and see pictures here...

Klart för ny tv-avgift efter nyår: Riksdagen har beslutat att ersätta nuvarande radio- och tv-avgift med en ny avgift, public service-avgiften. Det blir i realiteten en skatt som ska tas ut av alla över 18 år, som har en beskattningsbar inkomst. Avgiften blir 1 proc av den beskattningsbara inkomsten upp till ett tak. För 2019 blir avgiften maximalt drygt 1 300 kr per person/år. Personer med lägre inkomst får en reducerad avgift. Riksdagen ändrar i regeringens förslag om sändningstillståndens längd. Den föreslogs att vara tio år och därefter åtta. Nu blir den sex år i stället. Den nya tv-avgiften, som börjar gälla från den 1 januari, 2019 ska betalas med 1 procent av den beskattninsbara inkomsten med ett tak. * För 2019 kommer avgiften max vara 1 300 kronor per person och år. * Personer med lägre inkomst än 13 600 kronor i månaden kommer att betala en reducerad avgift. * Familjer med två vuxna med lön kommer att få betala max 2 600 per hushåll. I dag betalar varje hushåll med tv- och radiomottagare 2 400 kr per år. (SVT text)
