Waauw - Eat, learn, move ...

This is one of the reasons i started this blog.
Sharing this kind of amazingness and inspirational beauty.

(hmmm locusts, ...)

(Dancing, cooking, ...)

(London, Paris, don't recognise the rest at first sight)

What do YOU recognise?

By the way..

.. I GRADUATED, with "een grote onderscheiding" (magna cum laude aka with great honor),
mostly because of the dissertation, i got 17/20 on it wich is pretty good.
Anyway: YAY
Anybody got a job for me? :-)
I'm an envrionmental biologist, specialised in environment, did my dissertation on protist colonisation (Testate Amoebae) and i'm interested in doing:
research, communication, working with cradle to cradle, ..
Most important is that i'm helping in bringing the world closer to a healthy and sustainable place!


hmm, this might be even a longer break than before,
anyway, i run this blog and not the other way around, so if i dont have time, i dont have time :)

Almost a year ago i mentioned a book about genetic programming that i wanted to read, and its downloadable for free, so double thumbs up for that :)
But its still on my reading list i'm afraid, too much other things to read for now.

Anyway, its this comic by the wonderfull XKCD that reminded me of it so i decided to post something, not sure if i'm going to pick up posting again..

Have a nice day!

Another rotting corpse, more cheese and a bigger fish!

A few weeks ago i blogged about my visit to the nationial botanical garden to visit a large and stinky flower, we were too late but hurray hurray, there's another one coming out!!

The progress can be followed here!

This is what the website shows right now:

Maybe this time we'll be lucky and be on time to actually smell the flower!
(lucky ? well maybe not lucky but it will definitely leave an impression :-))

Nothing interesting ever happens in Antwerp ...

...untill today!!

A sperm whale (Physeter catodon) was pulled ashore on Antwerp's beach (Sint-Anna).

Of course me and my dad went to have look!

Here's the series of picture's i took.

Interesting books to read..

i've been planning for a while to put up a list here with interesting books, with a short review.
No time now but here's a few important ones, i'll give more info at a later time:
"The New Peoplemaking" by Virginia Satir
"The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins
"Biomimicry" by Janine Benyus
"Cradle to Cradle" by William McDonough & Michael Braungart
and many many more,
the reason i'm putting up this post right now is that PZ got a booklist meme up a day ago or so, and that's a post i'll want to go back to when i'm expanding the series of post about books i'm planning to make here.
Here's PZ's post.

Have fun and read read read!

...from a wonderful movie.

Here's a strange news article..
about a garden gnome that gets stolen, travels all around the world and is then brought back with pictures to prove it..
A cool idea, but certainly not new,
it surprises me the article doesn't mention the movie:
Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain
(imdb, wikipedia (obviously already mentions this news feat))
A wonderful and truly inspiring movie, i'm glad someone did the gnome thing!

Good night!
