Two days ago on TV channel I watched the documentary "Beyond Utopia", and it left a deep impact on me.

It shows both the terrible plight of all those people that have to flee regimes. Where on their perilous journey, every step is either towards doom or freedom.

And it also shows the unimaginable that can be laid down onto an entire population and still keep people in line, praising their glorious leader.

John Simmerman and I sat down for a chat on how Dutch street infrastructure reflects values.

Premieres 11amPST 8pmCET on 10 April. Podcast also drops Wednesday.

My thesis is that values of commonsense, punctuality, consensus, adaptation, sharing, self-reliance, and looking for bargains are actually built into the Dutch streets.

What values are reflected where you live?

@gretathunberg arrested at Hague climate #protest

Swedish #climate activist Greta Thunberg has been arrested by #Dutch police at a protest in The Hague.

The 21-year-old joined hundreds of protesters in a march against fossil fuel subsidies on Saturday.

The protest devolved into a standoff as dozens of police officers, some on horseback, attempted to stop protesters from blocking a main road.

Looking for literature on German in the Netherlands for a sociolinguistics class next semester!
I'm especially interested the German-speaking communities abroad (who is part of it, what languages do they speak) & language ideologies around German in the Dutch context. Thanks! ☺️

What kind of simpleton pickets a Holocaust museum? If they were that upset at the #Israeli President, they should have protested outside his hotel or wherever he is staying. This is either stupidity, #AntiSemitism, or both. Either way, it does the #Palestinian cause no good at all.

" Palestinian protesters gather as Amsterdam opens Holocaust museum

" The protest leaders emphasized they were against the Israeli president's presence, not the museum...."

Haha, I found this back in a dusty old corner of my digital archive…

A mid-1990s TV game fragment from a popular Dutch children's matinee called Telekids, captured from an old VHS tape.

Children phoned the studio and gave voice directions to control the game. I made the graphics using Deluxe Paint on an Amiga computer.

I follow this US Anarchist podcast called "Cool People that did Cool Stuff" and today's episode was a bit bittersweet for me.

It was about the 60s Dutch Provo's and Kabouter movements.

It was a very fun episode, but it also reminded me that the lost their protest spirit between then and now, and that Dutch society is very much pro-status-quo these days.

What happened to you ex-homecountry, you used to be cool.

The #Netherlands Benefit

In 2013 Transportation for #London invested £100M in "Mini Holland" pilot projects in 3 areas of the city, improving #bike and walk investments, to build streets more like the #Dutch.

University of Westminster researchers found 10x Return On Investment compared to nearby areas:
✔ lower health costs
✔ fewer sick days
✔ fewer collisions
✔ more savings & fewer car payments

Guys i love Dutch and Flemish music, my Dutch friend said I translated Doe Maar perfectly, should I dab into a french English project about Flemish and Dutch music when I have time? There are little to no information and it made me sad, especially about cool underground music, I could translate interviews and views on groups

Today in Labor History February 25, 1941: The outlawed Communist Party of the Netherlands initiated a General Strike in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam in protest of the persecution of Dutch Jews. It started one day after a pogrom in Amsterdam. 300,000 people participated. It was the first public protest against the Nazis in Europe. The Nazis brutally suppressed the strike, ending it after three days.

...another question for the #Dutch #scholars here 😅

Does anyone know anything about the etymology of "takkeherrie"...?

Might be something for a blog, @fonolog and @GastonDorren ?
