Ice, ice bebis?
The NHL has its share of cultures on the ice, and it’s no exception for the Calgary Flames. The Calgary Sun ran a fun peek-behind-the-curtain look at the team, which bounces a lot of different languages around on the ice. The players mostly speak in English, but the Swedes occasionally slip into their native tongue. “I try to avoid talking Swedish when guys are around,” said Elias Lindholm, who hails from Boden, Sweden. “But there is some stuff it’s hard to say in English and easier to say in Swedish. It’s just a respectful thing. You want to respect your teammates, and if everyone can speak English, it’s easier for everyone.”

Is virtual curb appeal a thing?
The Swedish Design Museum has launched something called The Home Viewing Exhibitions, which feature Sweden’s design heritage by giving people a virtual tour of some classic, hand-selected homes. Curbed has all the details with some images of the homes featured. It also included a statement from the chief experience office at Visit Sweden who said, “Swedish design and architecture come in many shapes and sizes. To truly show the diversity we could never collect enough objects in one place. By changing perspective and looking at regular home viewings as exhibitions, we don’t have to.” Fun fact, Niki Brantmark served as an exhibition curator of sorts.
