What will the world look like in about 150 years?

I always like to hearing people about what they expect from the future. If we think of the future then we don’t expect the people who live then to regard us as old fashion. We have accomplished so much in the last few centuries. What more could they achieve? In order to deal with that idea, I’m looking 150 years back in time to see how progressive those people thought they were.» Watch this vlog

What is the difference between a sports drink, cola and an energy drink?

In several countries there is a ban on selling energy drinks to children and/or youngsters. Why do they think that this is important? Are energy drinks just soft drinks with a bad image, even though they aren’t worse than for example cola? Or is there more to this? Let’s take a good look at energy drinks.» Watch this vlog

What do we gain from home cooking?

More and more people dislike E numbers. For that reason many were surprised that microbiologist, Rosanne Hertzberger, published a book in which she praised E numbers. This led to many angry responses. I don’t agree with her either, but I kept thinking of one of her arguments, namely that because of E numbers we don’t have to throw away so many foods and thus not waste it. She is right about...» Watch this vlog

Technical devices don’t help to exercise more

Many people who want to exercise more, often enthusiastically make use of all kinds of devices. However, I don’t believe in this. Devices can support us, but not make us exercise.» Watch this vlog

We let ourselves become too dependent on technologies

In the last few years people more and more complain that we have become too dependent on technologies. But I think that this is too easy, in some areas we do become very dependent on technologies, but we let that happen. What do you think? Share your opinion below!» Watch this vlog

Corona virus

There is a debate about whether we should do everything we can to protect our health against Corona, or whether we should make sure that the economy doesn't suffer too much from all this. I think this debate is short-sighted, for we should discuss the causes.» Read this blog

In order to stimulate us to exercise more, step counters are created. The idea is: 10.000 steps a day and you have done enough. I have tried one and have noticed that it is also a one-sided way to get us upon our feet.» Read this blog

Old systems are more and more often being replaced by new technologies. That seems to be a good development, but is it always? Last week there was a resurgence of the discussion concerning the Dutch air alarm system. This seems to be an old fashion system, but it is more important than it...» Read this blog

Vaginal douches aren't as safe as they sound. In the consumer program Kassa they blame vloggers for the fact that many people use them anyway. I don't think that this is justified. This problem is bigger than that.» Read this blog

On radio 1 I heard that the Dutch government wants to enable the general practitioner to prescribe the abortion pill too. I was shocked when I heard this, since an abortion is a very big step. How can people regard this as a good idea?» Read this blog

We use our phones more and more in traffic. The Dutch government has now decided that using a phone while driving a bike should be banned too. Some people think that this will be a helpful law, others don’t think so. But I think that we are the ones that should make this law work.» Read this blog

Some news reports on TV seem to be unreal. This week, I saw such a news report in which an economist said that it is risky that we don’t have that much cash at home any more. Cash is history, so this is just a matter of technological and social progress. But when I heard the economist explaining...» Read this blog
