Recently, 25-year-old Small Business and Retail Management student Bas van der Meer applied as a trainee at A. Th. De Boer. The talks went very well and he fully expected to be accepted.
Then, A. Th. De Boer saw on Bas’ Facebook page he had a loving relationship with 21-year-old Jan Willem, a man. The company said their plans to have Bas as a trainee were cancelled because of Bas being gay. ‘We are a Christian company’.
The family of my partner are Christians as well, but they say this makes them ashamed to be Christians.
Bas plans to sue the company at the human rights court; to help stop discrimination because of skin colour, sexual orientation or other pretexts. Not just for himself, but for others as well.
Hendrik de Boer, the boss of A. Th. De Boer, said to the Algemeen Dagblad he considered it ‘a low blow’ that Bas van der Meer had published the homophobic rejection e-mail on the Internet. He refused to say more about it.
This 19 November 2015 is by Maarten Venema from Leeuwarden in Friesland province in the Netherlands. He saw an otter approaching. First, Mr Venema thought it was an Eurasian otter which occurs in this area. However, Eurasian otters are shy and this animal was not.
This is an otter video.

To tackle otter bottlenecks, the provincial executive has made available 732,530 euro in the province of Friesland. These bottlenecks are places where otters try to cross a road to another nature reserve.
Besides four crossings where otters have been killed, the province is tackling 18 potential bottlenecks. All work will be completed in 2017. The measures usually consist of placing tunnel tubes and fences that lead to these tunnels.
