excellenceuniversity; industrial psychology, master ergonomics (1975-1979)promotor 18/20, statistician 17/20 (Fortran programming on mainframe), other one 13/20 (unfamilliar with topic,method).Just missing being an university-assistant, would become a great professor, would still love it.
(Film, one year, 1974-1975)still a good photographer (plants etc),now making remarkable movies with Xperia
construct possibilities : extraordinaryapproved designing my house (1987),no education as an architect, designerWith ‘moving tops’ (3 tops shifting relatively when walking or driving past). These days with focus on insulation and solar power, it would be grand!What a missed opportunity to set a remakable example, hopefully trend.
excellence (-1974)school ; mathematics ; not learning the lessons ;Solved a proof by proving first something we had not yet seen.Wanted to study pure mathematics at the university, everybody advised against it,because of the lack of job opportunities afterwards! And now?
‘modern’ tools : innovation & excellence1985-1992 (Etap NV, coordinator and as independant)A totally open software (now the ugly ‘app’-word is used) for tablet and screen.Allowing 90% of known psychological tests, including some graphical ones.Real time in depth analysis given, allowing immediate feedback.Input : also writing the drivers for tablet and clickable (touch-)screen, in color (HP, 30 years before conservative Apple), what’s only now the standard, mouse.Broken by a divorce ,and unwilling competition (BE & NL) vowing to one app-one test, no real analysis, no tablet, no drivers developed, ...ETAP was also a forerunner with the K30-system in construction (houses), and in which I also got involved.
in Pascal, Delphi, ...logical and mathematicalbut stable, dead,the code survives unalteredno statistical degrees of freedoma younster can excel
INFORMATICS: innovation & excellence (2000),developer and systems engineerESN Media Tervuren (ICT magazine for business, didn’t survive)application (software) in Delphi 5 and ASPto get the resellers inputting their ‘breaking news’,so the program would automatically place it on their server,and every paying webpage could show it, adblocker resistant.6 months: The European resellers still wanted all only on paper.Also, what a pity, we were forerunners in web-advertising,from text to picture to video, it’s technically a small step.The 2 Americans (bosses) and I.So tell me, why, with this 2 experiences, should I still invest in Europe?
some things : - mastered a deep bereavement (daughter) (2003-2006)being out of work gave room to set up new experiences- 20 (sum) years and ongoing ; excellent socializing of animals (horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, ...)- 10 years informal care for my mother (2005-2014)
What do I read ?BBC News (my homepage)New Scientist (subscr.)Royal Hortical SocietyLe Soir (subscr.)De Standaard (subscr.)Journal of Environmental Psychology (subscr.)...Et j’écoute PureFM (seulement)also subscribed to the Plantsman, the Garden (The Royal Hortical Society, also landscapes),also already years member of a dendrologist society (trees and shrubs in landscapes, more than 25 years at home in the ‘landscapes’ geographical arboretum of Tervuren),and am a scientific ecologist (f.e. natura 2000 codes 6430_hf en rbbhc).
Now must I also believe that I’m a top scientific specialist in food?This because someone calling this herself end of september 2016, argues that trans fats are the problem.Recent information is that it probably are the fats that have a low boiling point, where most of the unsaturated fats are found. These are worse than full fat. The advice is; don’t warm them too much, that’s why a southern diet (latin) is better, more full fat in the (raw) cheeses.Ah, the things I heard in a former centuary, while helping in a health shop! I questionned each supplier, only one was acceptable, the rest didn’t know what they were selling.Very recently; I gave the information about a small park (3300m2) I designed and helped to develop, to a renound ecologist (Ecologica). Later on he went to inventorize all protected plants, misses quite a bit, although good recognizable (e.g. Veronica longifolia), and misnamed others. All “I don’t know” he misnamed are towards the most complex name e.g. “Dryopteris affinis” is written as “Dryopteris Lindheimeri”. Incredible.I wouldn’t begin such a thing or ask the designer to assist me.
Ergonomics, a failed profession?•Take Fairebel, with its much improved milk pack, the ease in handling, pouring, good balance, ….•Take car seats like those that were in the Renault Kangoo, excellent support for your back : You climb in physically exhausted, you drive, you’re fit at the end.•In construction, please make living easy, it’s the detail that make life comfortable (hight of toilets and counters, good chairs, ease of cleaning, …), and really, together with a harmonious living, one gets ‘rested’.•In software, so unreadable to others, take care of what you do, follow some ergonomic rules! And people must work with it, that’s imperative.•ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) : Today (end 2016).I am stunned to see how companies just work in disarray, with old information, not internally synchronised, but contradicting each other.Please rethink, and make it so ergonomical, easy that errors can be avoided!•Ergonomics, that also encompasses well reusable containers, eg the prepared salades from Colruyt, Carrefour(B). A success, also with our friends. Delhaize (Ahold) loses.•Etc.It’s a commercial boost!Statistics (e.g. probability), so strange to the world?Artificial Intelligence (AI) finally boosts thanks to it.
I don’t strive for being the greatest, it’s together that we accomplish more.It is the shared goal that matters, not the “me!”

Looking for atantalizing opportunity
martial arts legend Bruce Lee :"Be like water making its waythrough cracks.Do not be assertive,but adjust to the object,and you shall finda way around or through it"it’s my reasoning in all,and the constant behind all I’ve done.Be flexible in your approach.Loosen yourself of wat you see,what it does, its purpose, look unhibited.Regardless it’s a problem, an idea, or an object, a person or animal.Do it.
Excuse me that the following must seem incredible.However, 60y and a life of theoretical and practical interest, and learning, and a broad interest, and a discomfort with only ‘routine’ must yield something like this.Now that the advance in A.I. is beginning, it will show that this resume/CV isn’t even extraordinary.
