Let’s do whatever we can to take people’s fear away of getting older

Corporation Laatste Wil wanted to distribute a substance that can help people to kill themselves whenever they want to. That isn’t legal because we are not allowed to help people killing themselves. But what worries me most about these events is not so much the fact that this corporation did this, but the fact that it was so popular. That means that there is much fear among people that they in...» Watch this vlog

Don't use a head scarf to establish authority

Authority seems to be an old fashion word. Now we can make our own choices. And it should be like that. However, there are still people in society who have authority, like the police, train inspectors, road workers who put up signs, and so on. Often we ignore them if we don’t like what they want. But if we take a serious look at the consequences of us ignoring them, then suddenly it doesn’t...» Watch this vlog

A media blackout could enrich the media and us

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

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

Last week all news channels reported it: an embryo of a pig was created that also contains human cells. It strikes me that everybody is talking about this, but that there isn’t a lot of turmoil about it. Nevertheless, I'm wondering whether we should really want this.» Read this blog

One would think that when there is an ecological disaster, measurements will be taken to prevent it from happening again. However, in case of the accident of the cargo ship that lost about 270 containers in the Wadden Sea this appears to be problematic. Is it really?» Read this blog

Since 2014 we have the right to get compensation if our flight was delayed for 3 or more hours. Airlines don’t like this and do whatever they can to not pay this compensation. That leads to a lot of frustration among people who are trying to get what they are entitled to. But I wonder whether we...» Read this blog
