‘Er zijn er die punker worden, ik werd de Marokkaan’ – De Standaard
‘Ik krijg media-aandacht omdat ik Marokkaan ben. En ik gebruik dat. Keihard. Het zou dom zijn om dat niet te doen. Daarom gaan onze eerste twee films ook over allochtonen. Het zou heel lastig worden als we gewoon een Vlaamsch verhaal hadden gemaakt. Maar het is niet de bedoeling dat we in dat thema blijven steken. Onze derde film wordt iets totaal anders. Een sciencefictionfilm als we dan al in Hollywood zijn. Of desnoods een samoeraifilm in Japan.’

‘Laat de gewone taalgebruiker bepalen wat goed Nederlands is… – De Standaard
De voorvechters van het ABN hebben in de jaren 60 en 70, vanuit een goedbedoeld streven naar emancipatie, het omgekeerde bereikt van wat ze beoogden. Ze hebben de Vlaming mismeesterd, hem in de richting van een kromtaal gestuurd. Hij leerde de regeltjes van de Noord-Nederlandse norm wel, maar omdat die zo tegen zijn taalgevoel indruisten, raakte hij vooral in de war en paste hij ze niet of verkeerd toe.

Evolution of the dune ecosystem in Flanders during the Middle Ages : anthropogenic factors versus sea level change theory
The purpose of the present article is to demonstrate that the disruption process of the
original coastal ecosystem of the so-called Older dunes on the Flemish coast only started
during the Great Reclamation Period as a result of anthropogenic factors, until, with the
exception of a small stretch on the West Coast, it was completely destroyed in the 14th and
the beginning of the 15th century.

The Real Story Behind Apple’s ‘Think Different’ Campaign – Forbes
In writing this story, I’ve drawn from handwritten, dated creative journals I’ve diligently chronicled throughout my agency career as well as files I saved from the 1997 Apple time period (being a packrat often proves useful). In these journals are countless pages of notes and concepts I jotted down during the process of trying to bring Apple back to prominence. I also found the original “To the crazy ones” television script I presented to Jobs, as well as a plethora of rough drafts.

While I’ve seen a few inaccurate articles and comments floating around the Internet about how the legendary “Think Different” campaign was conceived, what prompted me to share this inside account was Walter Isaacson’s recent, best-selling biography on Steve Jobs. In his book, Isaacson incorrectly suggests Jobs created and wrote much of the “To the crazy ones” launch commercial. To me, this is a case of revisionist history.

Maltese language – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dieventaal, ik zeg het u. Romance language-speakers may easily be able to comprehend more complex ideas expressed in Maltese, such as "Ġeografikament, l-Ewropa hi parti tas-superkontinent ta' l-Ewrasja" (Geographically, Europe is part of the Supercontinent of Eurasia), while not understanding a single word of a simple sentence such as "Ir-raġel qiegħed fid-dar" (The man is in the house), which would be easily understood by any Arabic speaker.
