Meer dan 35 watersportaanbieders organiseren speciale activiteiten tijdens de Maand van de Watersport. Het complete aanbod staat op de nieuwe website www.maandvandewatersport.nl.

 

 

Zo start de Maand van de Watersport op zaterdag 6 mei met de opening van het vaarseizoen in Almere. Een middag met veel activiteiten: zeilen met Optimisten voor kinderen, waterfietsen, een springkussen voor de jongsten, een rondvaart en verkoop van tweedehands watersportspullen.

In Zeewolde kan je een zeiltocht maken naar het eiland de Zegge en genieten van een lunch/picknick of een bbq aan het einde van de dag.

Alstublieft zeg. Die mensen die niet willen, zijn zo gek nog niet. Werken is een dure hobby.

Onderbouwing uit eigen praktijk, bedragen op maandbasis:
- ik werk, dus ik mag mijn zorgverzekering, eigen risico en eigen bijdrage volledig zelf dokken. Tezamen circa 150 per maand;

- ik werk, dus ik moet mij kunnen verplaatsen. Aangezien OV duurder is en drie (!) keer zo lang duurt en fietsen praktisch niet te doen is, werd het een auto. Met weinig schadevrije jaren op zak betaal ik aardig wat voor mijn bij wet verplichte autoverzekering (35). Daar zie ik zelf niets van terug, gaat hooguit om schade die ik een ander berokken. Komt benzine (260) en een maandelijks reserve voor onderhoud (40) bij. De belastingdienst pikt ook graag een graantje mee onder de noemer motorrijtuigenbelasting (47). Krijg weliswaar 9ct/km vergoeding vanuit het werk, maar die komt nog niet in de buurt van de werkelijke kosten door alle overheidsgrapjes als MRB, accijnzen op brandstof en verplichte verzekering.

- ik heb een koophuis – vanwege mijn werkende status heb ik de zoektocht naar een betaalbare huurwoning na jaren van wanhoop maar opgegeven – en dus ik mag iedere maand wat geld opzij zetten voor allerhande gemeentelijke belastingen en rekeningen (80-100). Ben contractueel verplicht tenminste een fatsoenlijke opstalverzekering op dat huis af te sluiten (15 of zo) en moet mijzelf uiteraard WA verzekeren (3 of zo).

Ben ik een dikke 600 euro verder. Dan heb ik nog niet gegeten, heb ik nog geen gas-water-licht-internet, heb ik de hypo nog niet betaald, heb ik nog geen kilometer priv gereden en heb ik nog geen cent gespaard voor grappen en grollen als inkomstenbelasting. Dit zijn puur de kosten die ik per maand moet maken omdat ik voltijd werk in Nederland.

Dus nee, om terug te komen op mijn opening, de mensen die niet (langer) welwillend meewerken aan deze bureaucratie zijn zo gek nog niet.

Almere, The Netherlands
April 24, 2017

ASM International N.V. (Euronext Amsterdam: ASM) (“ASMI”) today announces that it intends to sell a stake of 20 million shares of the total outstanding share capital in ASM Pacific Technology Ltd. (“ASMPT”) through a partial secondary share placement. Following the planned divestment ASMI will own approximately 34% of the shares in ASMPT.

ASMI views long-term value creation as very important. Regularly the Management Board reviews its strategy and, as part of that, the position it holds in ASMPT. The most recent review led to the conclusion that a further reduction of its shareholding of approximately 5% was justified. The Management Board remains of the opinion that, at this moment, a significant stake in ASMPT is of strategic value to ASMI.

Sale of partial stake in ASMPT and use of proceeds 

ASMI is proposing a reduction of its stake in ASMPT through an accelerated bookbuild offering to institutional investors of 20 million shares representing a stake of approximately 5% in ASMPT which is launching now. 

ASMI intends to use the proceeds for a new share buyback program. 

This new share buyback program will be in addition to the one which was announced on March 2, 2017. 

The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited is acting as bookrunner for this transaction.  

Once the outcome of the offering has been established, ASMI will make a further public announcement. ASMI has agreed to a 180 day lock-up period.

Almere’s car parks do not dominate the cityscape. Nevertheless, it is not difficult to find a safe and user-friendly car park, as the seventh largest city in the Netherlands with almost 200,000 inhabitants offers around 5,000 parking spaces in fifteen car parks in the city centre alone. In twelve car parks, the users drive through the EFA-SST®-Classic high-speed parking system door. The doors of the door specialist EFAFLEX open with a speed of up to 2.5 m/s when entering the car park and close immediately after the door line has been passed with up to 1 m/s.

In November 2009, the city of Almere decided to replace the old roll-up doors in the entrance and exit area of the Regisseur car park with three EFAFLEX parking system doors. Vandalism and contamination of the car parks were the main reasons for this. “After a test period with positive results, we installed EFAFLEX doors in ten further car parks. The newly constructed URCA car park was also equipped with EFA-SST®-Classic. Our primary selection criteria were the fast opening and closing speeds,” says Anthonie Dam who is responsible for managing all car parks in the city of Almere. “It can hardly be expressed in concrete amounts of money which benefit these doors are,” he explains. “Since we are able to offer cleaner and even safer parking facilities thanks to the doors, the number of users has grown significantly.”
A total of 28 EFA-SST®-Classic have been installed in car parks in the city of Almere in the past seven years.

With EFA-SST-Classic, the EFAFLEX engineers developed a door which can be used universally for almost all industry sectors as well as for parking systems.
The EFAFLEX spiral is used as construction principle. The safe external building door opens in mere seconds and closes immediately after the car has passed the door. Thus, EFA-SST®-Classic prevents unauthorised access. Unauthorised cars or persons cannot enter the building.
Common garage doors are calculated for about five opening cycles a day, but the EFA-SST®-Classic is dimensioned for 250,000 work cycles a year. The door is very stable and guarantees a higher wind load capacity than any other high-speed door.

For better ventilation or integration into smoke extraction systems, it is possible to supply the doors also with perforated laths.
If the customer is interested in modern thermal insulation an, EFAFLEX offers as the first manufacturer worldwide thermally separated EFA-THERM® insulation laths for EFA-SST® as a standard feature. Depending on the door size, outstanding thermal insulation values between 0.66 and 1.52 W/m² K are reached. Depending on how much light should come in, the door specialist equips the door leaf with transparent laths made from acrylic glass.

EFAFLEX claims to also pioneer in terms of safety. The systems of the company ensure significantly higher levels of reliable safety – both for the persons and the load and the door itself.

“We must be able to rely one hundred percent on the EFAFLEX doors,” says Anthonie Dam. “We would face a major problem if the car park users stand in front of a closed door.”
Both the city and the users are very pleased with the fast doors. Anthonie Dam concludes: “In the Netherlands, the marks range from 1 to 10 (which is very good). We mark the door systems with 8.5, because we are very pleased with them.”

Party: Almere Strand
Locatie: Muiderzandweg, Almere
Datum: Zaterdag 15 april 2017

Geluidskwaliteit

Hardshock kreeg dit jaar opnieuw de kans om het waar te maken op een nieuwe locatie in Almere.  Vorig jaar moest het festival vanuit Zwolle namelijk verhuizen wegens de geluidslimieten die er gelden. Maar op het strand in Almere viel de geluidskwaliteit tegen. Hoog tijd om te kijken hoe dat dit jaar was.

Rheeza

Als eerste liepen we de early area binnen, die de afgelopen jaren eigen altijd wel tegenviel qua geluid. We waren dan ook blij dat hier tijdens de set van Rheeza (die normaal samen met Painbringer zou draaien) duidelijk paal en perk aan was gesteld.  Platen als “Dreamgirl” en twee producties van Delirium (“Anger” en “Straight From Bolivia”) knalden door de boxen en zorgden voor een warming up van de spieren.  Een hele sterke platenkeuze van Rheeza, dus!

Lucy Furr, Nico Tetta

Even naar de volgende “deejane”, namelijk Lucy Furr in de PRSPCT/Hertz area.  Bij binnenkomst hoorden we al “Bow Or Burn” van High Rankin met het kenmerkende geluidje en geratel.  De volgende track, tevens op PRSPCT uitgebracht, was “BSA – Clubwalker” van de gelijknamige release.  Onder het alziend oog van het enorme PRSPCT-logo werd er al flink gefeest door een traditioneel divers publiek.  Veel trainingspakken en allternatief volk. Ook hier was het geluid dik in orde, topscore tot hiertoe dus. 

Verder beozochten we vluchtig beide uptempo/frenchcore tenten waar het geluidssysteem ook in orde was. Uiteindelijk belandden we nog in de Hardcore Italia stage, waar een grote banner van Hardshock in Italiaanse kleuren hing en een ietwat sip kijkend doodshoofd erbij.  We hadden Placid K gemist, maar wilden zeker de andere minder frequent in Nederland opduikende namen Nico Tetta nog eens zien.  Het werd een redelijk millennium-getinte set, zoals we gehoopt hadden, met: “ G-Member”, “Gangsta Gangsta” en “Anime – Detonated”.

Simon Underground en Hidden Eye-D

Om 14u00 moesten we echter weer klaar staan voor Hidden Eye-D, onze drum bass helden.  Veel onbekend werk weer, wat je weinig bij andere dj’s hoort. Het klonk wederom prima! Gedurende hun set liep de man van de techniek geregeld heen en weer om dingen te fiksen, dat beloofde veel voor de set van Simon Underground, die enkel met vinyl draait.  Er kwamen dan ook veel vette oude platen voorbij, waaronder ook het waanzinnige “Hell’s Basement” van zijn voorgangers.  Het geluid was inmiddels echt keihard en met het scratchen tijdens “Fight For Your Right To Party” werd een dikke, maar helaas korte set van 45 minuten afgerond. 

Distortion Dione

Vervolgens zouden Switch Technique en Micromakine het tegen elkaar opnemen, maar werden we even meegesleurd naar de early voor het nodige socializen. Het werd erg gezellig en dus bleven we hier hangen tijdens de set van Distortion Dione, die zoals gehoopt een hoog millenniumgehalte kende met bijvoorbeeld “How Much Can You Take” en “Art Of Fighters – Earthquake”.  Inmiddels hadden we het toch wat warm gekregen en dus werd de jas naar het kluisje gebracht.  Door de intieme opzet van Hardshock (het terrein leek zelfs kleiner dan vorig jaar) was dit snel gefikst. Even later stonden we we weer paraat voor de set van een andere legende: Marc Acardipane

Marc Acardipane

Aangezien hij in de jaren ’90 altijd de slogan “see you in 2017” propageerde, wordt dit het jaar van de waarheid voor hem en zijn aanhangers.  Hij wordt dan ook druk geboekt onder zijn verschillende aliassen, bijvoorbeeld als The Mover op technofeestjes.  Vandaag draaide hij een afwisselende set van een uur onder zijn “eigen” naam (eigenlijk heet hij Marc Trauner) met zowel early als millennium knallers (“E-Shifter” tegenover “Fuck This Track Up”). Ook kwamen er voorspelbare platen en meer verrassende tracks voorbij zoals “Bastard/Asshole” en “Bulldozer Project – Arise”. Hij sloot uiteraard af met “6 Million Ways To Die”. Dit had wat ons betreft liever iets van Kotzaak Klan mogen zijn, maar we vragen soms teveel.  Het publiek leek soms ook wel wat nood te hebben aan hits, want behalve bij “Drunken Piece Of Shit” werd er niet echt massaal losgegaan of meegezongen wanneer Marc de schuiven naar beneden duwde.  Voorheen zat de sfeer er eigenlijk beter in.  Misschien toch maar eens een aparte millennium area programmeren dan?

Painbringer

Vervolgens zou Lenny Dee het Amerikaanse onderdeel van de dag inluiden, alleen hadden we nog geen glimp van hem opgevangen.  Op het podium stond wel plots Painbringer, die eerder ontbrak tijdens de vooropgestelde battle met Rheeza.  Blijkbaar had Lenny Dee het dus niet gehaald en dit werd ook bevestigd door de MC.  Zijn stijl richt zich op de snellere early hardcore en vooral met “Bow To Me” van Psylocke wist hij te verrassen, waarna hij ook nog eens “The Future” van Nosferatu bracht. De grote moot van zijn set hebben we echter toch moeten missen, aangezien er tussendoor ook nog wat gegeten moest worden.  We hadden immers nog wel een tijdje te gaan.  Een patatje met kostte anderhalf muntje en een hamburger twee muntjes. 

The Horrorist

Sommigen zouden zich wellicht even verslikken in hun hapje als ze The Horrorist het podium zagen opstormen met zijn “Stahlhelm” en keihard geschreeuw.  Oliver Chessler is namelijk vooral bekend in electro-goth-middens en daar speelt men wel vaker met de Duitse taal en aanverwante artikelen, zonder daarom als nazi te willen doorgaan.  Alleszins weer eens wat anders dan een standaard synthesizer-act en zeker wat betreft het tempo. Ook hier weer een pluim voor High Energy Events dat zij zulke namen boeken om de donkere kant van hardcore te belichten, want behalve zijn grote hit “Flesh Is The Fever” waren er vele platen die wellicht wat minder bekend in de oren klonken van een leek.  Zo startte hij met “Can You Hear The Sound”, vervolgde met “Hardstep Future Force” en aangezien hij als Skinhead en Temper Tantrum ook een aantal terror-platen gemaakt heeft, konden “Ich Habe Die Macht” en “Fucking Hostile (Skinhead Remix)” niet ontbreken naar het einde van de 45-minuten-durende act. 

Promo

Daarmee waren we klaar voor de volgende battle tussen twee grootheden.  Hardshock toonde hiermee een zoveelste staaltje van haar kunnen om eens wat anders te programmeren: The Prophet draaide nog een zeldzame hardcore set  tegen niemand minder dan Promo.  Geen alledaagse combinatie en daarom zeker niet te missen.  Qua invulling leek het even wennen voor de heren, want de ene plaat volgde naar onze mening niet altijd even logisch op de vorige.  Zo hadden we al verwacht dat Promo eerder de millenniumtoer op zou willen gaan.  Na het vette “Brainwashkiller” van TNT ging het dan ook al snel die richting uit met “I Come Correct”, “Vicious Circle”, “Through Inner Core”, “Mastah Of Shock”,” Like A Shot” en het eigen “Among The Best”.  Naar het einde toe werd er toch weer naar de early teruggegrepen met het speciale “Cixx – To The Bass”, het vrolijke “Bass Be Louder” van Scott Brown en “Alright Now Here We Go” van The Prophet zelf.   MC Da Syndrome hakte zelf vrolijk mee, zoals hij eigenlijk de hele dag een echte liefhebber bleek. 

Laatste uurtjes

De laatste uurtjes brachten we door in de industrial en later de early met respectievelijk Hellfish Producer en uiteraard Frantic Freak.  Ook in de late uurtjes viel op dat de tenten precies de juiste grootte hadden, want ze waren altijd gezellig gevuld.  Wellicht ook door het feit dat de kou een stuk draaglijker was dan vorig jaar en het niet of nauwelijks regende.  Zelfs de zon kwam er vaak uit en dan warmde het al snel op.  En anders kon een koffiietje altijd nog soelaas brengen. 

Conclusie

Al met al was dit misschien wel de best editie van Hardshock tot nu toe. De underground-attitude wordt nog steeds succesvol uitgedragen met de Prspct-area en het 100% hardcore-karakter.  Met het nodige suizen achteraf kan eindelijk gesteld worden dat het geluid overal in orde was en is het voornaamste struikelblok van vorige jaren aangepakt.  We hopen dat hiermee dan ook een solide basis is gelegd voor de komende jaren, zodat men op deze locatie verder kan groeien.  Door alle area’s, behalve de main, in een tent onder te brengen is ook adequaat gereageerd op de bijtende kou van vorig jaar.  Dat belooft voor 2018!

In Almere is zaterdag een begraafplaats geopend voor kindjes die voor de 24ste week van de zwangerschap zijn geboren. Het zogeheten Vlinderveld is een initiatief van Begraafplaats en Crematorium Almere.

Het is voor het eerst dat in Nederland zo’n begraafplaats wordt geopend. Op het Vlinderveld krijgen ouders voor vijf jaar een plek toegewezen. Die kunnen ze op hun eigen manier inrichten.

Op de begraafplaats is plek voor dertig kindjes. Nu zijn er twee baby’s begraven.

Het idee voor de begraafplaats ontstond toen een bewoonster van Almere van Omroep Max een beeld kreeg voor haar kleindochter die na 22 weken zwangerschap overleed. Dat beeld, een open hand waaruit vlinders wegvliegen, zou eerst in de Vlindertuin in Almere Buiten komen te staan. Begraafplaats en Crematorium Almere bood vervolgens aan om het beeld op haar terrein te zetten en meteen een plek in te richten voor te vroeg geboren kindjes. (ANP)
