‘Let’s try together to find the simpler solutions’

As mankind we have some of big issues to solve at the moment. What strikes me is that we tend to come with solutions that are fully unrealistic, while there are much simpler solutions available too. Let’s remind each other about these simpler solutions so that we can really start to tackle the big issues.» Watch this vlog

Let’s also try to learn from others when it comes to ethical issues

New technologies often raise a lot of discussion. Unfortunately, proponents and opponents are mostly only expressing their own opinion and don't try to learn from each other. If we would try to understand someone who thinks very differently than we do, then we would suddenly come to see better solutions and that is of course better for society as a whole.» Watch this vlog

Pharmaceutical companies shouldn’t be commercial

Nasal spray turns out not to be as harmless as it seems to be. Of course, it is important that we become aware of that. But as long as there are companies who benefit from us buying medicine, it will become very difficult for us to start to use fewer medications.» 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

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

I heard a philosopher saying that it is better to prevent children more with severe disabilities from being born instead of less. How can he say that? Of course everyone likes to have healthy children, but still I think that there is more to 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

This week a full professor was in the news again because she forbids students to use their laptops when she is teaching. That sounds odd since laptops are very convenient for students. Nevertheless, research shows that they have downsides too. That may be possible, but I think that in that case...» Read this blog
