  • The Netherlands a Paradise for Car Thieves

    Bad News from the Netherlands
    18 Sep 2014 | 1:53 am

  • Freedom Party: Black Pete Has to Be Black by Law

    17 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
     The Freedom party will soon introduce legislation to parliament about Black Pete.  This new law will state that whenever communities organize an official reception for Sinterklaas, they will have to make sure that Black Pete is truly black.  In addition, it will not be allowed to change the lyrics of classic Sinterklaas songs. It is doubtful whether a majority of parliamentarians will support the law.www.volkskrant.nl/vk/nl/2686/Binnenland/article/detail/3748093/2014/09/15/PVV-wet-moet-Zwarte-Piet-zwart-houden.dhtml

The Dutch jihadist, Abu Ubaida al-Maghribi had an important function in the ISIS jail where the American journalist, James Foley, was held before he was beheaded.  There are reports that al-Maghribi has, in the meantime, been murdered by ISIS fighters on suspicions of spying. Another example is the Dutch jihadi, Khalid K., who has been seen photographed with a German jihadi who belongs to al-Baghdadi’s immediate advisors. Khalid…

    On my first ever trip to the Netherlands ― the one that instilled in me my rampant travel bug ― our family visited Arnhem, the city where my mother was born and lived for the first ten years of her life before immigrating to Canada. One morning, we went for a walk in a wooded park known as the Rozendaalse Bos. I noticed many damaged trees and asked Mom what the scars were from. “Oh, those are probably from the war,” she said. “There was a lot of fighting around here.” She said it so casually that I was shocked. The war (and by “the” war she meant World War II) was distant…

    Dom Pérignon has collaborated with Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen to produce a limited-edition champagne box and 3D-printed sculpture, as part of its Power of Creation project (not the bottles in the picture, the ones in the video) Iris van Herpen’s gift packs were created specifically for the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004, drawing inspiration from concepts of metamorphosis and the length of time involved in making Dom Pérignon. Each box is signed by the designer and bears a sprawling, crystal-like green graphic set on a black backdrop. There’s a video by German-born…
  • Man steals piece of royal carriage, owns up 50 years later

    In 1955 fireman Cor Priele and two colleagues had to guard the Gold Coach which was on display in Rotterdam at the time. Guard duty must have been boring. The firemen, Poot, Smaal and Priele, started using the royal carriage as a room to sit in and even to play tag around. That’s where things went south. Priele’s boot got caught behind the royal bench and a golden string broke off. The three guards decided not to tell anyone because it would mean they would get fired on the spot. “I was very, very scared”, the former fireman from Sleeuwijk, Noord-Brabant told Omroep…
  • Faking a 42-day holiday to make a point

    In 2013 graphic designer Zilla van den Born graduated from HKU University of the Arts Utrecht with a project in which she fooled family and friends into believing she was on a 42-day-long journey through Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. Fakebooking is so old hat that even British comedian Miranda Hart dedicated an episode, aptly called Holiday, to a fake vacation in Thailand. But Van den Born went beyond the selfie with the giant poster of a palm tree-lined beach in the background. Writes Kickass Trips: She followed an elaborate scheme of activities, all of it staged. The picture of her…

    17 Sep 2014 | 6:08 pm
    An important part of planning any trip to Amsterdam is finding the right place to stay once you get here. Sometimes people can be surprised at the cost of accommodation in Amsterdam, and since there is so much delicious food around, many find themselves trying to decide on whether to spend their euros on accommodation or cuisine. Well, you know which one we would pick! The good news is that you don’t have to choose. Many people find that by staying in an Amsterdam budget hotel and saving money on accommodation, they can then put that money towards tasty treats around town. Yes, cheap…
  • Recipe for Comfort Food: Stamppot

    Vicky Hampton
    15 Sep 2014 | 6:08 pm
    As the sun sets a little earlier each day… as the chill in the air produces cold beads of condensation on your bicycle saddle in the morning… and as the leaves start to turn shades of the Dutch favorite color (orange, of course), it’s clear that fall is well and truly in the air. But fear not! While Amsterdam’s ice cream days may be over for another year, there are many benefits of the changing season – including good old Dutch comfort food. And you can’t get much more comforting than stamppot: potatoes roughly mashed with pretty much whatever you like (although purists would…

    Let’s say you’ve visited the Netherlands or you’ve been living here for quite some time already. You know the taste of stroopwaffels, you’ve learnt to like liquorice candy and you eat poffertjes for breakfast. But I bet you haven’t experienced anything as Dutch as the Jordaan Festival. This annual festival has a long tradition of almost 40 years. The first edition was organized in 1975 to celebrate Dutch folk music. Over the years, the Jordaan Festival became a Mecca for the most famous Dutch folk musicians, and this year you can hear it with your own ears from September 18-21. On…

    Look beyond the coffee shops and canal cruises, and you’ll find a tiny city jam-packed with museums. Amsterdam offers a menagerie of collections to choose from, from the prestigious Rijksmuseum in which you can easily get lost for a day, to the weird and wonderful small museums such as the cat museum, tulip museum or cheese museum.

Take your little museum lovers on a magical adventure 20,000 leagues under the sea, let them explore the Brazilian jungle, or show them what life was like for the young Anne Frank, living…
  • Meals on Wheels: Amsterdam’s Food Truck Scene Gets Mobile

    Julia Evans
    3 Sep 2014 | 6:02 pm
    It’s official: Amsterdam has fallen for the foodie-phenomenon-on-wheels known as food trucks. But since our narrow canal-bridged city streets aren’t quite as conducive to having food trucks on them every day as some, we came up with a slightly different way of dishing things out. Food trucks in Amsterdam can generally be found at food festivals and food truck fests exclusively; and, luckily for us, there are enough of these events going on to keep our tummies constantly full. Here are our favorite food trucks in Amsterdam and how to find out where to get your fix of their fare.

    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+”.

    Regelmatig is er bij Twitterchat blogpraat een blogreview. De deelnemers van blogpraat geven dan feedback geven op een ter review aangeboden blog. Eén van de tips die ik kreeg tijdens de blogreview van Eenmanierom.nl op 16 december 2013 was mijn artikelen voorzien van een inhoudsopgave zodat doorklikken naar subkopjes in het artikel mogelijk is. In plaats van de honderden bestaande artikelen met terugwerkende kracht te voorzien van een inhoudsopgave ging ik op zoek naar een WordPress-plugin die op basis van de bestaande tussenkopjes automatisch een inhoudsopgave aanmaakt.

    Op het moment van schrijven hebben alle artikel Eenmanierom.nl samen meer dan 8.000 links. Links die ik zorgvuldig heb uitgekozen. Op de websites waar ik naartoe link heb ik geen directe invloed. Regelmatig raken linkjes verbroken of komen op een andere webpagina uit. Dat is voor een websitebezoeker niet fijn. En omdat Google haar bezoekers graag doorstuurt naar een goede website, daalt je pagina in de zoekresultaten.

Gebruikers die het pushbericht aantikken komen terecht op een met het pushbericht meegestuurde webpagina. De video hieronder laat kort zien hoe je Roost installeert op je website.
