This weekend: The Art of Relaxation

Last weekend was great. Me and the girls headed out to the Southern Part of the Netherlands for a wonderful, early spring or let’s rather say be-lated autumn weekend break.

This weekend was all about relaxation, easing minds, opening gates and quality time.

“Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” – Lao Tzu

In our hurried world it’s easy to feel like you “should” be on the go constantly. Getting caught up in day to day activities and neglecting ourselves seems to be a common occurrence. Rather than relaxing you might be staying late at the office to finish a report, sending emails, or connecting with friends on various social networks.

Even though for me as being the TRUE EXAMPLE of how you should NOT do it, small quality moments help a lot to regain peace and serenity. It does not matter, how short or often these important moments are, as long as they are IMPORTANT and based on QUALITY, even the shortest moments help. Meer lezen…

De Echte Egyptische revolutie.

Ik kon het toch niet laten even iets neer te zetten betreffende Egypte. Er gebeurt namelijk een hoop waar niemand bij stil staat.

Dit nieuws-bericht geeft mijn eigen mening niet weer, maar is puur een expressie van wat er inmiddels “ook” bekend is.

De échte Egyptische revolutie die u bij de NOS of RTL niet te zien krijgt

CBS-verslaggever Lara Logan (inzet) werd midden in een menigte die feest vierde vanwege Mubaraks val verkracht.

Er zijn twee Egyptische revoluties. De één wordt door Egyptische bloggers en Westerse media speciaal voor u in elkaar gedraaid en krijgt u te zien bij de NOS, RTL of in iedere willekeurige grote krant of nieuwswebsite zoals NU.nl. De andere is de échte revolutie. De verkrachting van CBS-verslaggever Lara Logan door anti-Mubarak aanhangers duwde de ware revolutie in Egypte even uit de schaduwen. Het was echter beslist niet de eerste seksuele misdaad die tijdens de volksopstand werd gepleegd. Lees hoe de Egyptische revolutie er achter de facade van wat de reguliere media ons berichten écht uitziet. En huiver. Meer lezen…

The Best Web Apps of 2010

As mentioned on AppStorm.net

2010 has been quite a year for web apps with HTML5 and CSS3 really beginning to catch on, giving web apps more power and capabilities than they’ve ever had before and bringing them closer to their desktop rivals—or completely redefining the way we do certain things (social media?).

With 2011 right around the corner, the AppStorm team thought it would be a great time to take a look back on 2010 and some of the best applications developers have brought us. So we bring you 20 of the best web apps from 2010.

In preparing this post, I was taken back by the incredible number of fantastic web apps I’ve seen this year, so it’s very possible you’ll find something new and amazing yourself. Go on and take a look!

New company with potential: SiLENIK

Most of you actually understand that I do know Silvia, which owns SiLENIK.

Her company surely has a great deal of potential in the field of commercial service-provider. I think in the near future she might
be extending her service level towards companies which may be an exact and direct hit.

Silvia is a fantastic, professional person with a good sense of business and potential. Sometimes the solution for darkness
in a company is easier fixed than a lot of people know.

It all starts: In HOLLOW

The Last Question by Isaac Asimov © 1956

The last question was asked for the first time, half in jest, on May 21, 2061, at a time when humanity first stepped into the light. The question came about as a result of a five dollar bet over highballs, and it happened this way:

Alexander Adell and Bertram Lupov were two of the faithful attendants of Multivac. As well as any human beings could, they knew what lay behind the cold, clicking, flashing face — miles and miles of face — of that giant computer. They had at least a vague notion of the general plan of relays and circuits that had long since grown past the point where any single human could possibly have a firm grasp of the whole.

Always consider life: no matter what you do or where you are

So we went out this weekend celebrating my grand-mothers 100th Birthday. Thank you all for the festive messages on behalf off the whole family.
Being out with my whole family (almost a 100 people) seeing everybody in amazing joy about that 1 perfect and very interesting human being. It made me think about a parabel I once read. Here is a reminder. Hope you like it.No matter how hard you work. Success is not only based on money.

I’m sure many of you have heard the story of The Mayonnaise Jar before. Whether you have or you haven’t, it’s a great reminder to live your life to the fullest, to always remember what’s most important to you, and to make time for the little pleasures of life that mean so much.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students, if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’ The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand.

The students laughed… ‘Now,’ said the professor, as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things – family, children, health, friends, and favorite passions – the things that, if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter – like your job, house, and car. The sand is everything else –The small stuff. ‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ He continued, there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. So… Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play With your children.

Take time to get medical checkups.

Take your partner out to dinner. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. ‘Take care of the golf balls first —
The things that really matter.

Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.’ One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented… The professor smiled.

‘I’m glad you asked’. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.’
