Conscription (sometimes called the draft in the United States) is the mandatory enlistment of people in a national service, most often a military service. Conscription dates back to antiquity and it continues in some countries to the present day under various names. The modern system of near-universal national conscription for young men dates to the French Revolution in the 1790s, where it became the basis of a very large and powerful military. Most European nations later copied the system in peacetime, so that men at a certain age would serve 1–8 years on active duty and then transfer to the reserve force.
In medieval Scandinavia the leiðangr (Old Norse), leidang (Norwegian), leding, (Danish), ledung (Swedish), lichting (Dutch), expeditio (Latin) or sometimes leþing (Old English), was a levy of free farmers conscripted into coastal fleets for seasonal excursions and in defence of the realm.
The bulk of the Anglo-Saxon English army, called the fyrd, was composed of part-time English soldiers drawn from the freemen of each county. In the 690s laws of Ine of Wessex, three levels of fines are imposed on different social classes for neglecting military service.
In the decades prior to World War I universal conscription along broadly Prussian lines became the norm for European armies, and those modeled on them. By 1914 the only substantial armies still completely dependent on voluntary enlistment were those of Britain and the United States. Some colonial powers such as France reserved their conscript armies for home service while maintaining professional units for overseas duties.

Short Term Prosperity vs Long Term Security & Survival
Prosperity is the flourishing, thriving, good fortune and successful social status. Prosperity often produces profuse wealth including other factors which can be profusely wealthy in all degrees, such as happiness and health.
Economic notions of prosperity often compete or interact negatively with health, happiness, or spiritual notions of prosperity. For example, longer hours of work might result in an increase in certain measures of economic prosperity, but at the expense of driving people away from their preferences for shorter work hours.
Economic growth is often seen as essential for economic prosperity, and indeed is one of the factors that is used as a measure of prosperity.
Security is freedom from, or resilience against, potential harm (or other unwanted coercive change) caused by others. Beneficiaries (technically referents) of security may be of persons and social groups, objects and institutions, ecosystems or any other entity or phenomenon vulnerable to unwanted change.
Security mostly refers to protection from hostile forces, but it has a wide range of other senses: for example, as the absence of harm (e.g. freedom from want); as the presence of an essential good (e.g. food security); as resilience against potential damage or harm (e.g. secure foundations); as secrecy (e.g. a secure telephone line); as containment (e.g. a secure room or cell); and as a state of mind (e.g. emotional security).
The term is also used to refer to acts and systems whose purpose may be to provide security (e.g.: security companies, security forces, security guard, cyber security systems, security cameras, remote guarding).
Security is not only physical but it can also be virtual.

In the early part of the [nineteenth] century, a fragment of a statue, redely chiselled from dark gray stone, was found in the town of Bradford, on the Merrimac. Its origin must be left entirely to conjecture. The fact that the ancient Northmen visited the northeast coast of North America and probably New England, some centuries before the discovery of the western world by Columbus, is now very generally admitted.
Hydrema is a dump truck manufacturer based in Støvring, Denmark, founded in 1959. They have specialized in the manufacture of articulated light dump trucks and earth moving equipment. A variety of models are produced, with a payload of up to 20 tonnes. Since 1996 they are also producing a mine clearing vehicle. A company subsidiary with production is operating in Weimar, Germany.
In 1959 Aksel Kyed and Kjeld W. Jensen started the company “Kyed and Werner Jensen”, which at that time were involved in two different projects, district heating and the fabrication of hydraulic digging equipment.
In 1960 the company was split, and Kjeld W. Jensen started Hydrema. Back then the headquarters were placed in Aalborg.
In 1962 the company moved to Støvring. At that time Hydrema had 15 workers and an area of 320 m².
In 1971 a daughter company was established in Norway, followed by Sweden in 1979, the former West Germany in 1981, England in 1985 and France in 1988. There are many countries like the United States, Australia and Poland, that import machines from the Hydrema factories in Denmark and from 1997 Germany.
In 1980 Hydrema started producing their own machines from the bottom. It started with the Hydrema 800-series, which were a new line of backhoe loaders produced all by themselves. But the engines were made by Perkins Engines in England (Today most machines are fitted with Cummins engines, though). Before 1980, Hydrema bought tractors from companies like Volvo, so they could mount their own hydraulic equipment on the tractors.
In 1997 Hydrema bought the Weimar-Werk Baumaschinen and thereby got production facilities in Germany. In Støvring, the production and administration area is about 16.500 m², while the facilities in Weimar are 20.000 m².
In 1998 Hydrema launched their unique Hydrema MPV 900. It is a Multi Purpose Vehicle, which is able to switch whole tools, like a telescopic arm or a digging arm.
In 2004, Hydrema mine-clearing vehicle (MCV) was used by the Indian Army for ‘proving’ operations to clear personnel or anti-tank mines with up to 10 kg explosive weight.
In 2006 Hydrema expanded into the defence industry through a counter purchasing deal with the Swedish Hägglunds, which is a part of BAE Systems. Hydrema was to produce, mount and integrate 45 turrets for the Danish Army‘s new CV9035 Infantry Fighting Vehicle.

A 25-year-old man living here, a citizen of Bosnia and Herzegovina, was sentenced to one year and nine months in prison by a court of justice at the Court of Esbjerg and expelled with a six-year ban on entry in connection with a conviction for organised drug trafficking in esbjerg municipality.
Three more men were convicted in the case complex.
A 23-year-old Turkish man was sentenced to one year and six months in prison and given a deportation warning, while a 23-year-old man, a Danish citizen, was also sentenced to one and a half years in prison.
A 25-year-old man, a Congolese national, was sentenced to 60 days in prison for complicity in the organised sale and another charge relating to the sale of drugs. He was also sentenced to a deportation order.
Five younger men aged between 18 and 23 have been sentenced to a total of 10,5 years in prison for a aggravated assault on a then 26-year-old male teaching assistant on June 19, 2020. Three of the five convicted have also been deported from Denmark for good, and one man was sentenced to deportation warnings.
The attack on the male teaching assistant happened at around 9 p.m. in a parking lot in Fyrreparken in Vollsmose, Odense.
The now 27-year-old man, who lives in Vollsmose, had previously reported one of the five men for an assault with a pepper spray at the residence where he worked.
Shortly before the assault was due to go to trial, the 27-year-old man was looked after and assaulted again – this time by five younger men while on his way to drop off his 4-year-old daughter in kindergarten.
The attack was very violent – the aggrieved described it in court almost as hyenas attacking a prey. One of the five assailants was armed with a knife, which the aggrieved were stabbed with twice. In addition, he was punched, kicked and stomped on his head.
‘It’s always serious when a witness is attacked and it’s an aggravating circumstance that it’s a public servant. Furthermore, it happened in the man’s spare time while he was with his little daughter. Therefore, I am very pleased with the verdict, because it sends a clear and clear signal that it is useful to choose the justice system because it is listened to and acted consistently against criminal offences,” says Prosecutor Daniel Dokkedahl from Fyns Politi.
Thus were the judgments:
A 22-year-old man was sentenced to 31/2 years in prison and deportation for good. He has been convicted of wielding the knife at the aggrieved and is believed to be the ringleader of the attack.
18-year-old man sentenced to 3 years in prison and deportation for 6 years. The judgment includes the attack on the teaching assistant in the institution where he worked.
22-year-old man sentenced to 21/2 years in prison and deportation for good
19-year-old man sentenced to 11/2 years in prison
23-year-old man sentenced to 1 year in prison and deportation warning.
Vollsmose is a suburb of Odense, the third-largest city in Denmark. Approximately 3 km northeast of central Odense, towards Odense Fjord. It has around 10.000 inhabitants and is characterised by a modern housing development project from the 1970s.Vollsmose housing
Since the 1990s, the area has become known throughout Denmark, because of the relatively large numbers of people of foreign descent living in the area. Its many social issues cause it to be officially classified as a ghetto by Danish authorities. Other areas in Denmark with similar characterised are Gellerup Parken in Aarhus and Mjølnerparken in Copenhagen.
Two Syrian men, aged 40 and 43, both residents of Sweden, have been sentenced by a court of justice at Sønderborg Court to five months’ unconditional imprisonment and deported with a six-year ban on people smuggling.
It was mainly senior citizens who were subjected to trick theft by the 51-year-old man. In late 2020 and early 2021, he visited citizens several times at various S-train stations, where he first defected their PINs and then stole their debit cards.
The cards were then used by the 51-year-old man, who was today convicted of a total of 18 thefts and 177 counts of data fraud.
Six Romanian and one Danish nationals have been arrested and charged in a case involving extensive racketeering of, among other things, stolen construction machinery, white goods and a larger amount of power tools
