Een ijkpunt in het Israëlisch-Palestijns conflict is het uitroepen van de staat Israël op 14 mei 1948. De Arabische buurlanden van de nieuwe staat reageren ondubbelzinnig: Egypte, Irak, Jordanië, Libanon, Saoedi-Arabië en Syrië vallen Israël de dag daarna aan. Israël is niet gewenst – maar het wint de oorlog en blijft. En daarmee het conflict tussen Israël en grote delen van de Arabische wereld.

Theo has been working on a herd of six animals in the summer. The Animaris Adulari is relatively small, five meters long and three meters high. It can survive strong winds. It has a wagging neck and a wagging tail. Theo tries to use the wagging movement to steer the animal. If the wind is 3bfrt or stronger, it will walk on the wind.

Probably my favourite Supergrass song. “Diamond Hoo Ha Man” was first played live at Guilfest 2007 in Guildford. It is the first official single from the band’s sixth album, Diamond Hoo Ha, and was released January 14, 2008 as a vinyl-only single, limited to 1,500 copies, thus limiting its chances of charting, which it failed to do.

I made a rabbit hand shadow on the wall. My daughter was less than impressed, but then asked me if rabbits ever made shadows. I told her that they just might, when nobody is looking.
Bought this great rabbit hand shadow shirt at Redbubble.
Op 14 mei 1940 rond 13:30 uur voerden de Duitsers in het kader van de Duitse aanval op Nederland in 1940 het bombardement op Rotterdam uit.

Google is incorporating page speed as a factor into it’s page ranking system. Matt Cutts summarized this change in three main points:
“First, this is actually a relatively small-impact change, so you don’t need to panic.
Second, speeding up your website is a great thing to do in general. Visitors to your site will be happier (and might convert more or use your site more), and a faster web will be better for all.
Third, this change highlights that there are very constructive things that can directly improve your website’s user experience. Instead of wasting time on keyword meta tags, you can focus on some very easy, straightforward, small steps that can really improve how users perceive your site.”
