Science should sometimes mark time for a while too

In my blog of this week I wrote that science should sometimes mark time too for a while. It felt strange to write that down for we have gained so much from science in the last few centuries. How would want to stop that? Still, it sometimes turns out that scientific developments have disadvantages too. For that reason it is good when ethicists and politicians get the chance first to consider...» Watch this vlog

Should people have the free choice to smoke?

There are fewer and fewer places in which it is allowed to smoke and some people don’t like that at all. They like to smoke together with others and argue that they should have the possibility to make this choice. I wonder whether this is true since 1. a cigarette is much more than tobacco with a paper around it and 2. smokers also harm the health of others.» Watch this vlog

Why do we disqualify other people so easily?

Last week there was a lot of turmoil about the news that a Dutch newspaper hired Ismail Ilgun, who is known as the bully vlogger, to make videos for them about deprived urban areas. I don’t understand all that hatred. It is about jealousy, retaliation or we just think that we know exactly what this boy is about. But actually this change of this boy only has advantages. Let’s be happy that he...» 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

Plastic is very easy to make all kinds of materials. But in the last few decades it became a major problem. Large islands of plastic are floating in the oceans and more plastic is added to them on a daily basis.
