‘The European Union and the Netherlands have double standards. On the one hand they impose harsh austerity measures which have devastating social and economic impacts in Greece; on the other hand they actively facilitate tax avoidance which costs the Greek state millions of euros,’ says SOMO researcher Katrin McGauran.

A dutch satirical ''news'' program made a hilarious rap battle about the bailout extension

"I'm Jeroen Dijsselbloem, minister of finance and political phenomenon. Due to the frown line on my forehead and my penny-pinching look, you can immediately see that I'm an expert. I'm the right man for this position, let the Greek come my way- I will make them mad. I will get the money back, as it is my duty- and you cannot stop me, Yanis Varoufakis."
'Yanis Varoufakis':"What I will do, or will not do, is something that I will decide myself. Come on, shake my hand, I don't have HIV. What are you looking at, with your penny-pinching face? We are our own country, not an European colony.
You think you're an expert, where did you study? Wagingen? Well, congratulations. I taught economics at Cambridge. But hey, you can tell me, what are we doing wrong?"
'Jeroen Dijsselbloem': "your economy is one big mess, we supported that shit with our billions. Now you expect us to say goodbye to that loan- you are just f*cking us the Greek way. "
'Yanis Varoufakis': "you want your money back? That will be very difficult, as it is impossible to squeeze blood out of water."
'Jeroen Dijsselbloem': "OK Yanis, you wanted this yourself. Angela, KILL!"
'Angela Merkel': "M to the E-R-K-E-L, get started please, and hurry up. Jeroen, move along, I will kick some ass. I'm not being disrespectful, but I have the biggest balls. OK, Varoufakis, now it ends, you are going to pay us that money back! No more discussion, or I will throw you out of the EU- and you will be living on the street, wearing old clothes."
'Yanis Varoufakis': "... and we will be riding donkeys and eat rocks; you can not really mean those stupid threats. I'm opening the door, and you are kicking it back? Fine by me, just chill, I will just go to Poetin."
'Vladimir Poetin': "P-Poetin in tha house, the most feared person in the West. Are you bullying the Greek people again? Just continue doing that, and you will get into trouble. Just send them to me, and you can start testing Poetin.
Just come to me, Yanis, as I'm not afraid of them. If you mess with Athens, you mess with Moscow. If you are f*cking Varoufakis, Poetin will get you. Now you forgot what you wanted to say- don't you?"
'Angela Merkel': "shut your mouth, Greece is ours."
'Jeroen Dijsselbloem': "Exactly what Angela is saying, only then with a bigger frown line."
'Vladimir Poetin':"... Just break up Varoufakis, ditch that woman."
'Yanis Varoufakis': "...give me some time to think, I will get back with response."

We know that attention is a phenomenon that exists only when we give 100% of ourselves—just 95% is no longer attention. The benefits of focused attention are enormous; apart from making us more productive, it also makes us feel better. Research shows that we are happier when we are focused on something in the here and now, rather than when we let our minds wander. Besides if we focus our attention on what we are doing, we are more likely to do a good job.

Have you ever worked in an office? Everyone has, but do remember one of those human resources guys who have to take care of each and everyone at the office? Yes, those poor people. They really work their ass off to take care of everyone and fulfilling everyone’s wishes. This isn’t easy for them and there can be times when they become really agitated.
 
Must have been a weird #christmas for the HR

This was the most valuable company in history (Worth 10 times as much as Apple)
 
I've seen this headline quite a bit in the news lately: "Apple is the most valuable company ever at $700 billion USD." Not true. In fact, it will take a long time before any company will be the new #1, considering that the Dutch East India Trading Company, also known as the VOC, is the true record holder. Their value? Over $7 trillion USD!

I'm sorry but I don't want to be an emperor.

That's not my business.

I don't want to rule or conquer anyone.

I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black men, white.

We all want to help one another.

Human beings are like that.

We want to live by each others' happiness, not by each other's misery.

We don't want to hate and despise one another.

In this world there is room for everyone.

And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.

The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

e think too much and feel too little.

More than machinery we need humanity.

More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.

Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.

To those who can hear me, I say "

Do not despair." The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.

The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people.

And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.

(Charlie Chaplin - Last Speech of The Great Dictator)

How can data analysis revolutionize HR strategies? 
 
Google isn’t just innovative when it comes to software and marketing. It applies its own data analysis approach to developing a highly productive workforce.

Learning a foreign language is no easy thing, but it does get easier over time because you learn from your mistakes and you get to know yourself better as a learner. The best thing is that you can considerably shorten your learning curve by learning from other people’s mistakes.
