Isn’t it cool to know that there is a Boeing 777 with MY initials:

PH-BVB (where PH could stand for Philips Healthcare, the company I work for)

I first ‘met’ PH-BVB flying home from Cairo, what a pleasure!

Read this post, isn’t Thomas L. Friedman totally right?

From NYT: Reading the news that General Motors and Chrysler are now lining up for another $20 billion or so in government aid — on top of the billions they’ve already received or requested — leaves me with the sick feeling that we are subsidizing the losers and for only one reason: because they claim that their funerals would cost more than keeping them on life support. Sorry, friends, but this is not the American way. Bailing out the losers is not how we got rich as a country, and it is not how we’ll get out of this crisis.

Hi all,

I’m just uploading more travel pictures (business travels).

I’ve been to Dubai many times and it’s actually amazing what they do over there.

Recently another new project was announced, a MOVING skyscraper:

Moving Skyscraper

The world’s first moving building, an 80-storey tower with revolving floors giving a shifting shape, will be built in Dubai, its architect says.

The Dynamic Tower design is made up of 80 pre-fabricated apartments which will spin independently of one another.

“It’s the first building that rotates, moves, and changes shape,” said architect David Fisher, who is Italian, at a news conference in New York.

“This building never looks the same, not once in a lifetime,” he added.

The 420-metre (1,378-foot) building’s apartments would spin a full 360 degrees, at voice command, around a central column by means of 79 giant power-generating wind turbines located between each floor.

Ever heard of Dogtroep?

We’ve seen their show yesterday; “Montan”.

It is impossible to describe, modern art, technique, music and show.

I really enjoyed it, something completely different.

Unfortunately they will stop performing end of this year.
