Amount of ecstasy found in post has more than tripled since 2016, say officials

The rise of the dark web has led to huge increase in the amount of illegal drugs being sent from the Netherlands, one of the world’s largest drug producers, via letters and packages in the post.

The Dutch customs authority has warned that a sharp rise in successful seizures sent through the country’s postal service is indicative of a growing trend that it is struggling to crack. #Drugs #Netherlands #Worldnews #Internet #Technology #Europe


 
Barriers put up to deter ‘careless’ tourists from seeking perfect picture among bulbs

Barriers and advertising banners are being erected around fields in the tulip bulb region of the Netherlands in an attempt to deter a growing number of tourists from flattening the flowers to take selfies.

Tourists have been seen jumping above the tulips to secure the perfect picture, or lying down in the middle of fields, squashing the bulbs. #Netherlands #Europe #Worldnews #Wildflowers #Environment

Dutch inventor examines performance of bovine toilet system

"We are tackling the problem at the source," Henk Hanskamp, the Dutch inventor and businessman behind the "Cow Toilet", told AFP Friday (March 29).

The cow toilets are currently being tested on a farm near the eastern Dutch town of Doetinchem and seven of its 58 cows have already learned how to use them without the need for stimulation.

"The stables have become cleaner and the ground is drier. Less damp ground is better for the health of the cows' hooves," Jan Velema, a vet who took part in the tests, was quoted as saying by De Volkskrant newspaper.

Everyone knows that trees,in order to grow,extract CO₂ molecules from the atmosphere through photosynthesis.In that process the CO₂ is dissolved: the O₂ (oxygen) is returned to the atmosphere and the C (carbon) is stored in the plant and in the soil.Trees do this free of charge and it is a solution to climate change that works, is scalable, and generates money.What more do we want?
That trees do their job perfectly is shown by the beautiful and instructive video from NASA you can find below.During the summer (in the northern hemisphere), all over concentration of CO₂ is dissolved by the photosynthesis of trees.
How is it possible that this money making solution to climate change - if CO₂ is indeed the cause - is not included in the Climate Agreement in The Netherlands?
This is because a part of the 'climate experts' have introduced the term 'indulgence' among themselves. Under the Roman C

«Dutchman's Golden Age» exhibition in Abu Dhabi


“The sketch is part of a group in which ­Rembrandt was looking for the right profile for depicting Jesus in a humanistic way,” says Rose-Marie Mousseaux, the chief curator of the museum. “You can see the intensity throughout the ­composition, and you can really feel it when you stand in front of the painting.”

Dutch Golden Age painting ­describes roughly a century of ­phenomenal artistic production, when Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, and others, took to capturing the domestic surroundings and the social life of a country transformed by global trade. The painters worked to a high standard of naturalism, ­executing both history paintings and, influenced by Italian painting, ­Biblical and mythological scenes.

Netherlands grants amnesty for family relying on medieval law to shield them in Hague church

A church service that has been performed continuously for 96 days has come to an end after the Dutch government agreed to pardon a family the pastors were shielding from deportation as part of a wider amnesty.

Sasun Tamrazyan, his wife Anousche and their children Hayarpi, 21, Warduhi, 19, and Seyran, 15, have been holed up in the Bethel church in The Hague since October relying on a medieval law that says immigration authorities cannot enter while a religious service is being performed.Church service stops after 96 days as asylum family pardoned\#Netherlands #Europe #Worldnews #Migration #Refugees #Christianity

This is the side of the #Netherlands you don't hear about comrades. So please don't think this country is a free haven. It' s a neo-liberal tax haven, and don't you dare to criticize the state.

Your attention please!

Today is the Dutch #activist and #anarchist Joke Kaviaar arrested and send to jail. She must stay in jail for 71 days.

Joke is also active on Mastodon (and therefore the Fediverse) under the alias @Jo.

Her arrest was not a surprise, cause she lost earlier this month her last appeal. She must go to jail cause she first published alleged seditious texts, criticizing in her unique creative style the Dutch #asylum policy. The second reason was an action in a municipal council chamber against the #deportation of children and their families. So yes, she has to go to jail because of a now forbidden text and a non-violent action.
