En die antwoord is …

Die oplossing vir onderstaande probleem is natuurlik om ons gevangenes na die Nederlandse tronke oor te plaas. Dan het die Hollanders nóg meer rede vir hulle grote bek oor ons

Cape Town – While South
Africa and many other countries struggle with prisons filled to
capacity, the Dutch justice ministry has announced that it will close
eight prisons as a decline in crime has left many cells empty.

The Netherlands deputy justice minister Nebahat Albayrak made
the announcement last week, prompting a debate in the Dutch parliament
over the loss of jobs and conviction rates, Radio Netherlands reported.

The country faced a shortage of prison cells in the 1990s but a
recent decline in crime has since led to a capacity for 14 000
prisoners but only 12 000 detainees. The closures will results in a
lost of 1 200 jobs, Albayrak said.

The ministry’s research department expects the declining crime
rate to continue for some time. Three prisons will be closed this year
and the rest in 2012, saving the country about €164m.

COPENHAGEN’S URBAN HEAT EFFECT: CLIMATE CONFERENCE SEX BOOM



Politiken, 27 May 2009

Copenhagen’s sex trade did brisk business during the recent business climate conference.




The global climate challenge may have been on the daytime agenda during
the recent World Business Summit climate conference in Copenhagen, but
in the evenings many businessmen, politicians and civil servants are
reported to have availed themselves of the capital’s prostitutes.




“We’ve been extremely busy. Politicians also need to relax after a long day,” says ‘Miss Dina’, herself a prostitute.




Nyhedsbrevet 3F called various escort agencies and prostitutes to hear
whether they had been busier than normal during the climate conference
– and all agreed; summits in Copenhagen are good for the economy.




Dorit Otzen, who leads Reden International says that major events in Copenhagen attract more sex workers.




“A lot of men in one place means more work for prostitutes. At the same
time we have a government that will not ban prostitution, so in fact we
invite visitors to avail themselves of prostitutes,” Otzen says.

Erlkönig


Erlkönig

Die Dood sing ‘n rustige,
Troostrende lied.
Hy is nie kwaad
En kom sonder haat.

Hou dus goeie moed
En wees nie bang.
Kom, gee hom jou hand,
Rus sag in sy arms, rustig
Soos ‘n slapende kind.

Die Dood sing ‘n rustige,
Troostrende lied,
Kom gee hom jou hand,
Rus sag in sy arms.

(kuns)mis boete


So, Sasol moet ‘n gróót boete betaal weens onwettige bedrywighede. Maar, aan die ou einde van die dag, soos Naas sê, is dit óns van wie die boetes verhaal word – dit terwyl ons reeds oormatig tot Sasol se winste bygedra het – ons moet die gelag dus dubbel betaal. Die ou Transvaal is helaas nie meer, maar sy wet loop nog serk onder ons.

Ek herdoop die besigheid dus as ASSOL.

Regstellende Aksie

In vanoggend se Die Burger lewer FW kommentaar op Regstellende Aksie.

Maar ek dink die manier waarop sommige van ons geagte leiers dit implementeer, is dit eerder Regstelende Aksie of hoe?

Ons is nie alleen nie!


Kom vandag hierop af – dis nou na aanleiding van die Britse “travelgate” skandaal – die menslike hebsug, korrupsie en gierigheid het nog nie verander nie. Ons sien diedelfde grypsug onder sjimpansees en bobbejane.

IN THE NAME OF GOD, GO!

Oliver Cromwell, Rump Parliament, 20 April 1653



It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,
which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled
by your practice of every vice. Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to
all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would
like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas
betray your God for a few pieces of money.




Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice
you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is
your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? is
there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the
Commonwealth? Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred
place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your
immoral principles and wicked practices?




Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed
here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves become
the greatest grievance. Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse
this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous
proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he
has given me, I am now come to do. I command ye therefore, upon the
peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place; go, get
you out!




Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. In the name of God, go!

Matematikus


Matematikus

Die prosaïese, eendimensionele

reguit lyn is net van belang vir ‘n

uitgelese groepie  matematici of

dalk  ‘n  eensame  reisiger  van

punt A na punt B.

Maar die kurwes,

die halfrond,

die volle sirkel,

die parabool,

die hiperbool …

Elkeen vind volmaakte

vorm in jou lyf

as ek met oë
toe,
en honger hande,

die wiskunde bedryf.
