ESU: Students oppose privatisation and tuition fees in the Netherlands ZAGREB – Students in Europe sent the Dutch government a clear message in the beginning of December, when they criticised harshly the ongoing reforms to the country’s higher education system. Representatives of 47 national unions of students gathered in Zagreb, Croatia, for the 65th Board Meeting of the European Students’ Union (ESU), which is the highest governing body of the organisation. They adopted a couple of motions on the reforms underway in the Netherlands, denouncing the government’s intention to privatise a part of the higher education system and to raise tuition fees for honours study tracks. The Board Meeting identified several aspects of the reforms that might have negative consequences for students in the Netherlands.
Merchants of Doubt by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M Conway Rachel Carson is generally viewed as an environmental heroine, a courageous campaigner whose book, Silent Spring, alerted the world to the dangers of the indiscriminate use of pesticides. Hers was a success story, the tale of a woman who highlighted a serious problem – that the anti-mosquito agent DDT was building up in the food chain where it was killing millions of birds and animals – and who helped introduce a global ban on use of the chemical. At least that is the common appreciation of Carson. However, a brief search of her name on the internet today produces an unexpected response. According to many websites, Carson – by all accounts a pleasant, amiable woman – was a mass murderer who killed more people than the Nazis. This dramatic claim is based on her campaign against DDT, which, it is alleged, has led to the deaths of countless Africans from malaria.

Project Hero deserves a zero: comment on our student loans interest increase story Blog Further to our Guardian story on proposals to raise interest rates on student loans taken out in the last 15 years, Higher Education specialist Andrew McGettigan, who analysed the proposals for that story, discusses the realities and costs people will face with "monetising" of student loans: Did you graduate from university in the last decade? Did you take out a student loan? The decline of the birds and the bees - Rachel Carson's Silent Spring revisited Monitoring data reveal significant changes in the number of meadow birds in the Netherlands. The overall yearly decline has nearly quadrupled in recent years, i.e. from 1.2% in 1990-2000 to 4.6% since 2000. All meadow birds in the monitoring scheme (Skylark Alauda arvensis, Northern Shoveler Anas clypeata, Yellow Wagtail Motacilla flava, Oystercatcher Haematopus ostralegus, Black-tailed Godwit Limosa limosa, Northern Lapwing Vanellus vanellus, Common Redshank Tringa totanus, Meadow Pipit Anthus pratensis en Tufted Duck Aythya fuligula) are declining since 2000. Songbirds like Skylark, Meadow Pipit and Yellow Wagtail declined up to 30% from year to year in some regions which may lead to a population drop of 75% in only five years.
No shots fired! 2 EU nations exchange territory as friends BRUSSELS (AP) — The Netherlands and Belgium, with their royals in attendance, on Monday signed a deal for a peaceful exchange of land between them for the mere fact that it makes sense to do so. While the globe is littered with pieces of territory that are jealously held or fought over for historical reasons, the two neighboring nations signed away tiny plots of their land to the other because they were too much of a practical and jurisdictional bother. On the meandering Meuse river, which divides both nations, Belgium gave up a tiny peninsula linked only to the Netherlands and got in return a nearby piece from its neighbor. "We have shown that Belgium and the Netherlands succeed as good neighbors to adapt their borders peacefully," Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders said at the signing ceremony in Amsterdam.
Pedagogy for Radical Change (and other topics) An audio interview on how Brazil’s Landless Movement retook control over land and education, inspired not only by Freire but also early Sovjet thinkers. Against the Grain: Pedagogy for Radical Change “By illegally occupying huge estates, Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement, or MST, has won title to millions of acres of land. The MST has also worked to transform Brazil’s schools, in ways that support the movement’s socialist goals. Activists there have drawn inspiration from the ideas of Paulo Freire and several Soviet educational theorists.
