Benzineprijs in Duitsland

Niet alleen voor een gezellige kerstmarkt, voordelig bier of zelfs voor een vervroegde boostervaccinatie bezoeken veel Nederlanders in de grensregio onze oosterburen, maar natuurlijk ook om voordelig te tanken. In Duitsland is de accijns op brandstof lager dan in Nederland en met de hoge benzineprijzen kun je maar zo 15 euro besparen op een volle

Computational Intelligence and Robotics

AIBO robothondSince September 2007 I am doing the MSc Computational Intelligence and Robotics course in Leicester. This is somewhat similar to artificial intelligence, but it is slightly more focussed towards applications of AI and less focussed on the research towards human intelligence. Moreover I have applied for the RobotChallenge in Vienna. The picture shows the robotdog AIBO, which I will probably use in the competition.

Wintersport

Sylvia in MayrnhofenIn the week of new year (2005/2006) we were (Sylvia and I) in Zell am Ziller for wintersports. The skiing area, Zillertal Arena, was very good, we visited the different subareas on different days. During the week I nearly skied all the slopes once. Rob Muntz (environmental knights) also visited the Zillertal, het points at the environmental effects related at global warming as a result of skiing. Well as long as skiing is possible and affordable you can still find me annually on the skiing slopes. The photos will soon be added to the website.

Like every year the puzzle consisting of of 40 rebusses could be found in the Dagblad van het Noorden (regional newspaper targeting the north of The Netherlands). U can find the puzzle of 2007 on the website. On the blog you can exchange your findings regarding the puzzle of 2007.

(Nederlands) De Nationale Wetenschapsquiz

the national science quiz jury Christmas eve, a moment to look out for, the national science quiz. Yearly 20 extraordinary multiple choice questions that are open to a lot of discussion and reconsideration are published in news papers and television guides. The atmosphere of the quiz including its experiments is a feast, currently with Denvis, not bad, but the absurdistic presentation of Wim T Schippers is unsurpassed. Its a shame he won't pick it up again after the sad event some years ago of the premature publication of the questions.

The adventures of Roderik

bread with hailsOne day... Roderik prepares a slice of bread. He takes two slices of bread from the bread cabin and tops them with a delicious coloured hail topping. Well Roderik, that will be feast!

eat breadSure, that is feast. Roderik takes the slices one by one and enjoys the hail topping. Roderik is happy, because when his mom will return she does not have to complain that he is eating too less.

Philips, high tech, free beer...

engineer Roderik Emmerink and engineer Marinus van Heuvelen in the coach at the Philips High Tech CampusWith the top management of Archytas, Marinus, and I, Roderik, we've been to the 'Design your own future' event at Philips in Eindhoven. Philips strategy is to rule the market with their connected planet concept and with e-ink (but actually Sony will bring that to the market). Photography was not allowed, and of course there was (free) beer available...
