Sofyan Aswad: Sofyan Aswad: Responsibility and demands from all quarters - am I up to it?

The Christmas and New Year holidays are over, and we are back to work at the newspaper office at Gamlegården, but without the driving-force and mastermind behind the paper. Inga -Lill is off ill, and we others have to go it alone. Can we do it?

Which of us has never criticised someone else's work at one time or another? I think we've all done that, criticism can be both positive and negative. It is fine as long as it is within reasonable limits, but just imagine, if you exchange jobs with your boss for a time, what will it be like then?

The pressure of work and responsibility on the shoulders of the boss are huge, as I have begun to realise. I took over some of my boss's duties and started to understand what she means when she says she is tired!

”Who is responsible for setting limits in a limitless field of work?”
Sofyan Aswad

Under what conditions are we to live our working lives? Who is responsible for setting limits in a limitless field of work? Our work can make us ill, and for us journalists it is clear that our biggest problem is the psychosocial working situation. We work on many fronts, and the profession makes high demands on us which we may not always be able to meet.

With this number of Kb Mosaik we are trying to produce a paper for you against all odds. We want everything to be as normal as possible and are trying to bring you the paper as usual.

”Illness as a result of stress is the most common cause of long-term absence from work in Sweden. On average 36,000 persons a year fall victim to it. Three-quarters of them are women”
According to the National Insurance Office.

In this edition you can read all about home-language teacher Roula Al Haffar, who came to Sweden five years ago and started working as a teacher at Hyllie Park Folkhögskola in Kristianstad. Besides her work as a qualified interpreter. She is truly an example to follow.

The Emilia Lundberg case has been concluded. Her childhood friend has been sentenced to 14 years in prison. 'The 21-year-old has deliberately murdered Emilia by repeatedly cutting or stabbing her in the head, the throat, the torso and the back.' Read about it on pages 4 - 5.

Even although the corona crisis has affected all sectors of the community, and in particular the restaurant and hotel branch, there is still hope. The new owner of Steakhouse No 9 wants to put up a fight under these difficult circumstances. 'Kristianstad is a town on the way up, and it has great potential.I think there's a bright future here, with all that is going on.' Read more on page 14.

We hope that this year, 2021, will be a year full of good news, and that we can soon give one another a hug, gather round the same table with family and friends. But until then we must keep our distance and do our best to prevent the spread of infection.
