    In IJsselstein, Utrecht, a man ready to propose to his girlfriend rented a crane. Unfortunately, the crane crashed down onto the neighbour’s roof. The neighbour’s daughter had just woken up and was out of her room when the crane came crashing through it. While trying to lift the crane out of the way with another crane, the arm of the first crane crashed down on the roof a second time, trashing the roof in its entirety. While the police, city and even the mayor have gone to the scene to assess the damage, the girlfriend did say ‘yes’ and the couple have gone off to…

  • Most Dutch Cannabis Is Exported

    Bad News from the Netherlands
    17 Dec 2014 | 1:15 am
    A study done by the Scientific Research and Documentation Center (WODC) has found that 95% of cannabis grown in the Netherlands is exported. Even if cannabis becomes legal within the Netherlands, the issue of the criminality involved will not be solved.  These findings are a big disappointment for those who want to legalize the growing of cannabis because their argument, that with legalization the criminality ends, has been found worthless.http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/16154#.VJFFRSuUeyc

    Four opposition parties say that the Minister of Finance refuses to give parliament an insight on deals the Tax Authority makes with international companies, such as Starbuck’s and Google.  This prevents parliament from properly functioning and controlling the Ministry of Finance.  It also creates lack of confidence in the fiscal authorities and what they promise individual companies in exchange for having them establish a commercial base in the Netherlands. http://www.telegraaf.nl/dft/nieuws_dft/23451250/___Kabinet_belemmert_Kamer___.html

    Two days after I left Amsterdam in early 2012, the cold snap hit. It was so cold that the canal froze over and cars on the street were turned into ice sculptures. It was not ideal travelling weather, to say the least. Unfortuantely, this affected my enjoyment of Amsterdam and Berlin, the two final (and coldest) cities on my first trip around Europe. No matter how many layers I wore, my hands were burning from the cold even as they were stuffed in my pockets, wrapped up in gloves. I don’t have many pictures. I didn’t get to spend much time outside. This was disappointing, because I…

That being said, one day when I do return I do want to check off the “highlights” of Amsterdam and go to more museums;…

Door onder meer de boekhoudregels voor banken tijdelijk te versoepelen hoopt het instituut de financiële instellingen te beschermen tegen de diepe duikvlucht van de roebel. Zo mogen banken een oude, gunstigere wisselkoers gebruiken bij het berekenen van de waarde van hun beleggingen. Het gaat daarbij onder meer om leningen die de instellingen in vreemde valuta’s afsloten. Volgens Bloomberg moeten Russische banken de komende maanden voor 16,4…

    De Amerikaanse president Barack Obama wil de banden met Cuba aanhalen. De Cubaanse leider Raúl Castro heeft dit bevestigd. De toenadering tussen de twee landen komt na een gevangenenruil eerder vandaag en zou een grote koerswijziging betekenen na 55 jaar vijandigheid.

  • Half Moon ship to make historic journey to Hoorn

    17 Dec 2014 | 3:55 am
    The New Netherland Museum in Albany, New York will soon be saying ‘bon voyage’ to their Half Moon (‘Halve Maen’) replica, originally a Dutch ship from 1609. Owing to financial difficulties, the city of Hoorn, North Holland that already serves as a retirement home for many old vessels, has agreed to care for the 1989 replica, with the museum retaining ownership. The Half Moon was used for educational purposes, teaching people about explorer Henry Hudson who came to the New World in 1609 for the Dutch East India Company on board the Dutch ship. Nobody knows yet how the…
  • Toy airplane box bad salute to Twin Towers

    16 Dec 2014 | 2:34 am
    The Zeeman bargain items chain is recalling some 8,000 boxes of toy airplanes as they depict New York’s City destroyed Twin Towers. According to a spokesperson, the toys were made in China and had been properly tested, but the picture on the box got under the radar. The right wing of the Lufthansa plane seems to be missing as well. The photo shows two airplanes, one imitating a Lufthansa airplane from Germany and the other flying way too low, too close to the Twin Towers and too close to another airplane to be just a casual stock photo on a box. If I were Lufthansa, I wouldn’t be…
  • Making ‘cheese’ from mushroom and prawn waste

    Orangemaster
    15 Dec 2014 | 6:27 am
    Three scientists of the Meat the Mushroom company are developing a meat replacement food product using prawn waste at their container venue in the up and coming Amsterdam North district. They explain that prawn waste is normally processed into animal feed or spread on fields. “Ninety percent of all Dutch shrimp is peeled in Morocco. If you buy fresh prawns, you can assume that they are about two months old. They are caught in the North Sea, cooked on the boat, shipped to Morocco, peeled and placed in preservative, and shipped back to the Netherlands again. [...] Some 70 percent of the…

    In IJsselstein, Utrecht, a man ready to propose to his girlfriend rented a crane. Unfortunately, the crane crashed down onto the neighbour’s roof. The neighbour’s daughter had just woken up and was out of her room when the crane came crashing through it. While trying to lift the crane out of the way with another crane, the arm of the first crane crashed down on the roof a second time, trashing the roof in its entirety. While the police, city and even the mayor have gone to the scene to assess the damage, the girlfriend did say ‘yes’ and the couple have gone off to…
  • Boris Johnson insults the Dutch hand that helps him

    12 Dec 2014 | 5:28 am
    A bit of a buffoon at home if we believe the media and quick to call Amsterdam ‘sleazy’ as the Mayor of Amsterdam and King Willem-Alexander were visiting London (which was nice), the Mayor of London Boris Johnson has no qualms about calling upon Dutch business expertise from Amersfoort to build proper bike paths so that cycling in London becomes safe for all road users. London’s bike paths are found on busy roads and are dangerous, as London Cyclist points out and has filmed during a ride. The goal is to build bike paths in London along quieter roads, parks and the likes, a…

    Amsterdam is not just worth a visit in the summer when the canals are brimming with life and the streets are an ants’ nest of cycling activity. This charming city also has a lot to offer to its winter visitors. Wrapped up warm, there is nothing nicer than a stroll along the canals. It gets even better after dark, when the arched bridges are lit up and the sparkling lights reflect in the water. Amsterdam’s love affair with bringing light to the darkest of seasons doesn’t stop there. For the third year running, artists from far and wide have come to the Dutch capital to illuminate the…

  • Amsterdam Canal Houses: A Short and Skinny History

    Julia Evans
    19 Nov 2014 | 5:53 pm
    The famous canals of Amsterdam can be divided into two equally awe-inspiring categories. Firstly, there are the actual waterways themselves. These are the sunken passages that snake their way through the city, which were painstakingly dug, filled, arched over by graceful bridges, and are a pleasure to laze upon on a boat or simply gaze at. The second striking characteristic that makes the canals here so special are the houses that line the waterways. Easily the most gorgeous buildings anywhere in the world, and crammed lovingly together, Amsterdam canal houses have a fascinating history…

    There is no question that Amsterdam is one of the best places to party in Europe. For many people, nightlife is the main reason they decided to come to Amsterdam in the first place.

One thing is for sure: you can find plenty of places to partake in Amsterdam nightlife almost anywhere in the city. There are a few distinct areas around…

  • Google Penalty

    28 Sep 2014 | 1:18 pm
    Sinds ongeveer mei loopt het aantal bezoekers van deze website geleidelijk aan terug. Tot 13 september. Zaterdag de 13e. Toen bleef van het resterende aantal bezoekers nog maar 25% over. Nu is dat nog steeds 400 à 500 bezoekers per dag. Maar het was daarvoor dus meer dan het dubbele. Omdat ik over veel onderwerpen schrijf lijkt het me sterk dat de interesse ineens zo sterk terugloopt of iets dergelijks. Dit lijkt op het ingrijpen van Google: algoritmisch, geen Google Penalty. Bijvoorbeeld een nieuw Google-algoritme, zoals Brandon M. Dennis vlak na mij meemaakte. Hij heeft eenzelfde…

    Het boek “Zet je zaak op de kaart in 60 minuten” van Elja Daae staat boordevol online marketingideeën voor bedrijven die richten op lokale klanten. Denk aan winkels, makelaars of een advocatenkantoor. Tegenwoordig zijn klanten in alle leeftijdscategorieën online te vinden. En zoekmachines zoals Google houden automatisch op basis van de zoekopdracht rekening met locaties in de buurt van de zoeker. Om gevonden te worden moet je website wel duidelijk aangeven wat “in de buurt” is. Naast zoekmachines spelen social media een belangrijke rol in het leven van veel mensen.

    Hangouts is een app van Google waarmee je zowel kunt chatten als (video)bellen. Eén-op-één en met een groep. Mensen gebruiken Google Hangouts voor van alles: brainstormen, huiskamerconcerten, muziek- en kooklessen en het laten zien van games (walkthrough). In Amerika verzorgen culturele instellingen zoals musea en dierentuinen virtuele rondleidingen (Virtual Field Trips) voor scholieren onder de vlag van het initiatief “Connected Classrooms on Google+”.
