U.S. Navy port visit in Stockholm
The U.S. 6th Fleet command and control ship USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20) was anchored in Stockholm for a scheduled port visit for a few days at the end of June. The crew hosted a reception on board the ship and crewmembers participated in a community relations project with youth at the Fryshuset Activity Center. "USS Mount Whitney’s visit to Stockholm is a wonderful opportunity to continue strengthening the bonds between the United States and Sweden as we work together toward mutual goals. On a personal level, we look forward to interacting with the great people of Stockholm to learn about and enjoy the rich culture and history of Sweden," said Capt. Carlos A. Sardiello, commanding officer, USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20). The ship departed Stockholm on June 29 en route to Gaeta, Italy.

Don't Grope Campaign #tafsainte
As festival season swings into full force, a zero tolerance campaign to curb sexual harassment among young people has police handing out wristbands.
After a couple festival seasons with increasing numbers of reports of sexual molestation among youth, "We’re hoping this will get many, especially young guys, to think twice. A lot of them don’t seem to realize (groping) is a crime," national police chief Dan Eliasson said. The Don’t Grope campaign is part of a wider plan to counteract sexual harassment among young people. Police officers are handing out rubber bracelets at major youth events this summer. The text reads: “Polis avspärrat #tafsainte (Police cordon off, don’t grope.)

The godfather fulfills a dream in Sweden
American screenwriter, film director and producer Francis Ford Coppola, will receive the Bronze Horse for lifetime achievement at the Stockholm International Film Festival in November. Coppola’s career began in 1962, his films encapsulating “their own era with perfect authenticity, yet remaining equally relevant today.” Coppola, who won five Oscars and four Golden Globes through his long career with cult films like “Apocalypse Now” (1979) and “The Godfather” trilogy (1972, 1974, 1990), last directed “Distant Vision” (2015), a new multi-generational Italian-American saga. “His prophetic images and powerful stories have defined cinema for generations,” the festival stated. The filmmaker has never been to Sweden: “In my lifetime, I’ve never had the pleasure to visit Sweden and its capital Stockholm, which I’ve always wanted [to do],” Coppola said, looking forward to his November visit. And “to welcome the godfather of cinema to Stockholm is a dream coming true,” said Git Scheynius, festival director.
