‘Let’s have a good debate on the abilities of our security agencies’

In many counties people are worried about what their security agencies are doing. Since security is very important to us it is important to have a societal dialogue about them, but the subject seems to be too complex for that. In this vlog I will bring it down to what this really is about and thus how we can discuss the abilities of our security agencies. You can apply this to the situation of...» Watch this vlog

Do you have full control when you use your phone in traffic?

It would make everyone happier if we would all turn our cell phones off when we are in traffic, because there would be fewer accidents. And still, we keep on using phones in traffic. The reason for this is on the one hand because we assume that we won’t be ones who have an accident and on the other side because we are very curious about what we will see and hear on that phone. In this vlog we...» Watch this vlog

Why is it often easier to distrust someone or something?

Regularly we hear that politicians make mistakes that are very convenient to them. In my blog of this week I looked at such a mistake and tried to find out whether they could have made these mistakes unintentionally. And that could be. But while I was writing this blog I felt that it is often easier to distrust people than to trust them. This vlog is about that this is understandable, but...» 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

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

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

Last week I heard someone saying on the radio that going on a vacation by airplane a few times a year is history now. Airplanes emit so much CO2 that we shouldn’t do that so often. That is really a remarkable statement. He might be right, but people don’t just stop doing something only because...» 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

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
