Grieks restaurant Rhodos in Tiel

Vandaag in de mailbox een vraag van Dimitri Alexandrakis eigenaar van het Grieks restaurant Rhodos op de Vleesstraat 10 in Tiel: “Die Graaf Statler heeft hier jarenlang iedere week met zijn vrouw gratis Souflaki gegeten in ruil voor onze vermelding op de Griekenland startpagina waarvan hij de beheerder was. Ik vind dat jullie nu ook maar ons filmpje moeten laten zien.” Welnu dat doen wij graag uiteraard.

The Corporation – Full Movie

thecopporation

One hundred and fifty years ago, the corporation was a relatively insignificant entity. Today, it is a vivid, dramatic and pervasive presence in all our lives. Like the Church, the Monarchy and the Communist Party in other times and places, the corporation is today’s dominant institution. But history humbles dominant institutions.

All have been crushed, belittled or absorbed into some new order. In this complex, exhaustive and highly entertaining documentary, Mark Achbar, co-director of the influential and inventive Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, teams up with co-director Jennifer Abbott and writer Joel Bakan to examine the far-reaching repercussions of the corporation’s increasing preeminence.

carroyo911 The “corporation” is one of the most evil concepts invented by man. It is a huge shield against being accountable for personal actions. If CEO’s on down the management line were held personally responsible for any damages, there would be no damages…. Maybe we need to redefine the corporation’s prime directive from profit to DO NO HARM or abolish it entirely. Man created it and man can destroy it!??!!

Zondagsrust

Vandaag bezocht GuE Ville deux, de grootse shoppingmall van Charleroi. Goed bereikbaar via metro lijn 4 halte Sameritaine. Of dat iets met die barmhartige Sameritaan te maken heeft zoek ik nog uit.

Terug naar Ville deux. Modern, een enorm groot complex. Vandaag was alleen de Pathé megabioscoop en het horeca deel geopend.

Zes dagen zult gij werken en de zevende dag is de dag van God. De Belgen begrijpen dat gelukkig.

European Commission | Facebook is misleading consumers

In the press release of 20 September 2018 the European Commission criticizes Facebook’s terms of services. From the press release:

Regarding Facebook, there was very limited progress in the framework of the ongoing enforcement action. Facebook’s new terms of services from April contain a misleading presentation of the main characteristics of Facebook’s services. In particular, Facebook now tells consumers that their data and content is used only to improve their overall “experience” and does not mention that the company uses these data for commercial purposes.

Commissioner Jourová said: “My patience has reached its limit. While Facebook assured me to finally adapt any remaining misleading terms of services by December, this has been ongoing for too long.
