Financieel vooruitgang? Financieel vooruitgang?
Eerder achteruitgang!
Zoals bij de tot totstandkoming van het Statuut in 1954 heeft men dezelfde fouten (ik zeg handigheden) toegepast/gemaakt; namelijk de dingen waar het wel om gaat mbt autonomie onbesproken gelaten en vooral gesluierd in vage taal dat op meerdere manieren te interpreteren is. Daardoor is er in difinitie niet veel veranderd; het is nog steeds het aloude aanpappen en nathouden.

Jan Post maakt de balans op van de vooruitgang van de onafhankelijkheid op Curacao en St. Maarten, met name op financieel gebied.

T leest alsof er geen (politieke?) wil was om dit soort zaken doortastend aan te pakken. (dan zouden eventuele problemen gelijk zichtbaar worden)
In deze situatie kan iedereen gewoon rustig slapen en heeft niemand er last van. t Kost misschien wat geld, maar op het geheel van een NLse begroting peanuts.

Studeren op Curaçao is vooral een combinatie van feest vieren, drugs gebruiken en dan nog af en toe nog wat aan je stage doen (Er zou moeten staan "Stage lopen vanuit Nederland" ipv studeren, want de Curaçaose student kan amper boeken betalen)

No shit! Laatst was er eentje net voor ons huis vast komen te zitten tussen de rotsen, nadat hij onder invloed van drank en drugs op de rotsen was geklommen. Reageerde nergens meer op. Zijn 'vrienden' lieten hem gewoon in de steek en zwommen weg. Gelukkig voor hem waren er huurders in het weekendhuisje, die ze de hele dag hebben lastiggevallen met hun luide muziek en gezuip (de kustwacht mocht een dag later nog komen schoonmaken), die de hulpdiensten hebben gebeld anders was hij verdronken.

De huisbaas staat trouwens hier te boek als iemand met lange tenen......

Na het zoveelste uit de hand gelopen feestje in zijn studentenhuis op Curaçao was huisbaas Walter Bossers zo gefrustreerd dat hij zelf op slooptoer ging. "Weet je wat," dacht Bossers, "nou zal ik zelf eens een (muziek)boxje (ter waarde van 2500 euro) in het zwembad leggen.

This kinda makes me happy that we get all our freshwater from saltwater conversion. This is pretty scary stuff.
A medication commonly taken for Type II diabetes, which is being found in freshwater systems worldwide, has been shown to cause intersex in fish – male fish that produce eggs. The medication is found to be widespread in freshwater.

Was looking through some articles from a well known aquaponics practitioner here on the island. The word detoxification came up multiple times, but no matter how I read I could not find out what toxins were being taken out of the body..........
Felt like that millennium bug thing......  _Everybody is scared of it, but no one knows what it is_
There’s no such thing as ‘detoxing’. In medical terms, it’s a nonsense. Diet and exercise is the only way to get healthy. But which of the latest fad regimes can really make a difference? We look at the facts

Why do we still perpetuate the slave mentality thing?

Europese beperkingen op producten van gekloonde dieren worden opgeheven onder druk van het Amerikaanse bedrijfsleven. De EC wil TTIP niet in gevaar brengen.

Toch frappant.....Ik blijf me verbazen over hoeveel gelijkenis er bestaat tussen Curaçao en Nederland. Lijkt wel of de leiders in NL hier stage hebben gelopen :D

Het pamperen van burgers in Nederland loopt terug, het faciliteren van het bedrijfsleven groeit juist door. En daar hebben we het nauwelijks over.

Aaaaaaaaargh

Ok, I'm in dubio......

Shall I buy a Phantom 3 Advance by +DJI or shall I go for the Solo by +3D Robotics ? I'm torn between a going for better version of what I have (an upgrade) or going for a complete new craft (diversify).

Hahahaha,....ok. First off, the Phantom 2 gimbal is good for getting you good footage not great footage. Otherwise you'll have to invest in more expensive gimbals and a bigger platform like a Hex or an Octa. More arms, more motors, more weight, more thrust, more power to fight the wind. Then there's shooting mode. Id take 720p at 60 fps any day over 1080p at 30fps. At 60fps you can smooth out allot of the 'bumps' in the video in post-production.

What to choose.
If you're used to Dji and don't want to do anything fancy with waypoints, and like to manually fly and film, stick with Dji.

If you want to program your glide-shot, and have the quad automatically do it for you at the press of a button - 3DR.
However it will be the first version, so prepare to deal with bugs and constant updates.

If you're looking for follow mode on a robust quad, check out airdog.

Hope i helped clear your thoughts and not cloud your judgment.

First fragment(s) of when I took the drone out for "a real spin". I'll post aerial pictures and footage on +Curacao DroneWorx from now on.
Quick cuts at Bullenbaai (part 1) Only transition effects added to the cuts with Pinnacle Studio 17, while otherwise leaving the footage untouched. - Curacao DroneWorx - Google+

I want to keep that page "clean" +Tom Voute, so I went ahead and deleted your comment. But as answer: That (white house) is my house. Yes it really needs a lick of paint, but not till all construction_ is finished.

Introduction

Biologist (MSc.), IT/Business-consultant, husband, son, brother, analyst, entrepreneur, hi & lo tech lover, budoka (albeit not practicing anymore), airsoft enthusiast, catalyst, food lover, art lover, data analyst,  observer, and much more, that is what I stand for.

I’m very much interested in the intersection of Biology and other areas of science that overlap with Informatics (IT infrastructure, Databases, Datawarehousing). And every other aspect of human life on this planet, as long as we can talk without antagonizing each other. 
Friend and foe can and will tell you much more about me, so do not hesitate to ask them.

My Google+ policy
In my opinion it is impossible to circle everyone back.  So I will initially only circle you back when you post stuff that interests me. I post public most of the time so feel free to comment on anything. If you interact with me, you can be sure to get circled!

Bragging rights
Some call me the IT-Biologist.

Nice setting, good service. One of the better (westernized) sushi bars on the island. If you're a purist like me though, avoid it like the plague; had a hard time finding a something with no cream cheese in it.

Call it what you like, but here they know how to make a mean whiskey sour. The place is very, very nice. So much you'll forget about the good company you may have brought with you. I can recommend it.

It may look a bit shabby, but is a very secure parking. No nonsense, just put your car in the box, lock it and go your merry ways in Paris without any worries of high parking fees or break ins. The people talk a bit English, not much but enough to explain the rules. In my years visiting Paris, the parking with the most bang for your buck.
