The Position of Mineral Nitrogen Fertilizer in Efficient Use of Nitrogen and Land: A Review  [PDF]
Jaap Jan Schr?der
Natural Resources (NR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/nr.2014.515080
Abstract: Our attitude towards mineral nitrogen (N) fertilizers is ambivalent. N fertilizers have on one hand increased our supply of food, feed and other bio-based raw materials tremendously and also improved the use efficiency of land and labor, but have on the other hand a negative impact on the quality of the environment and contributed to the depletion of fossil fuel reserves. This awareness has resulted in strong pleas to spend much more attention to the recycling of N containing downstream “wastes”. It is, however, naive to assume that even perfect recycling suffices to offer the same number of people the same diet without inputs of “new” N, as inevitable losses of N make compensations indispensable. “New” N can be derived from either biological N fixation (“legumes”) or from industrially fixed N (“fertilizer”). The existing literature provides no evidence that the use of N fertilizers is per se unsustainable, as these fertilizers can also be made from renewable forms of energy. Besides, soil health and human health appear sensitive for the dosage but not for the form of N. It is yet imperative to reduce the input of “new” N as much as possible, so as to minimize adverse environmental effects. Measures to this end are a more precise assessment of crop N requirements, a better timing and positioning of N inputs, and any measure supporting the acceptance of “wastes” by farmers. The present paper elaborates the above aspects.
Churchill’s Radical War Leadership  [PDF]
Jaap A. Hoogenboezem
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2015.41001
Abstract: Winston Churchill is, rightly, hailed as a great war-leader. In 1940, when the German armies were all-powerful, and an invasion of Great Britain seemed imminent, morale in Great Britain was slipping. Churchill, with nothing more than his speeches, managed to inspire the nation and prevent a collapse of morale. That he was able to do this is remarkable. Contrary to common belief, he was not a “great commoner”, he was a maverick politician who was far from the mainstream, and far from trusted. The person of Winston Churchill can hardly have been inspiring. To understand how Churchill nevertheless managed to rally the nation, his speeches are analysed from the viewpoint of Saul Alinsky’s “rules for radicals”, a method of action devised to empower powerless communities. Churchill used many of Alinsky’s rules, and this, rather than supposed inspirational leadership capabilities of Churchill, explains why he could influence morale in Great Britain.
Conversational Flow Promotes Solidarity
Namkje Koudenburg, Tom Postmes, Ernestine H. Gordijn
PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0078363
Abstract: Social interaction is fundamental to the development of various aspects of “we-ness”. Previous research has focused on the role the content of interaction plays in establishing feelings of unity, belongingness and shared reality (a cluster of variables referred to as solidarity here). The present paper is less concerned with content, but focuses on the form of social interaction. We propose that the degree to which conversations flow smoothly or not is, of itself, a cue to solidarity. We test this hypothesis in samples of unacquainted and acquainted dyads who communicate via headsets. Conversational flow is disrupted by introducing a delay in the auditory feedback (vs. no delay). Results of three studies show that smoothly coordinated conversations (compared with disrupted conversations and a control condition) increase feelings of belonging and perceptions of group entitativity, independently of conversation content. These effects are driven by the subjective experience of conversational flow. Our data suggest that this process occurs largely beyond individuals' control. We conclude that the form of social interaction is a powerful cue for inferring group solidarity. Implications for the impact of modern communication technology on developing a shared social identity are discussed.

Johannes Franck (1854-1914): de eerste hoogleraar Nederlandse taal- en letterkunde in het Duitse taalgebied
Jaap Grave
Studium : Tijdschrift voor Wetenschaps- en Universiteits-Geschiedenis , 2013,
Abstract: Johannes Franck (1854–1914): the first Professor of Dutch Language and Literature in the German-speaking Countries. Johannes Franck (1854–1914) was the first Professor of Dutch language and literature in the German-speaking countries. Born Jewish but not a practising Jew, he found it impossible to get a chair in German language and literature because of the prevailing anti-Semitism in Prussia, Saxony and Bavaria at the time. In this article I will focus on his struggle to get a full professorship in Germany and the obvious but concealed anti-Semitism in Germany. I will then proceed to describe Franck’s study at Leiden University and his judgement on his colleagues in Germany and the Netherlands before dilating upon the ‘Berlin School’ he belonged to.

Empire, Economy and the Dawn of the Enlightenment: Some Explorations into Seventeenth-Century Dutch Intellectual History
Jaap Nieuwstraten
United Academics Journal of Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: The transition from the age of late humanism, in which the Bible and the ancients dominated the world of learning, to the age of the Early Enlightenment, in which both the Bible and the ancients came under increasing attack and in which the old humanist and Aristotelian precepts came to be replaced by new notions of the law of nature, constitutes one of the most important developments in European intellectual history. Normally, in general accounts of this transition, the focus lies primarily on the novel ideas of famous philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes or Baruch de Spinoza and their impact. This article, however, will argue that the replacement of the old concepts of the Aristotelian-humanist tradition by the ideas of the Enlightenment was in a large part also due to the contributions made by a host of figures, whose name and fame have now fallen into relative obscurity. It will do so by focussing on a number of these lesser-known figures, who lived and worked in the seventeenth-century Dutch Republic. By exploring how they thought about contemporary events and, for example, about topics like empire and wealth, this article will demonstrate that in the decades around 1650 important intellectual changes were already under way in the Dutch Republic thanks to the work of ‘minor’, ostensibly ‘traditional’ figures, who thereby helped transform their own intellectual world.
The Habitats and Birds Directives versus the Common Fisheries Policy: A Paradox
Jaap Leijen
Merkourios : Utrecht Journal of International and European Law , 2011,
Abstract: The interaction between environmental conservation and fisheries has never been easy. This is no less true for European Union (EU) policy in these areas. Numerous EU Member States, and the European Commission, are struggling with the paradox in EU law that emerges when EU environmental policy and EU fisheries policy overlap. On the one hand, EU Member States are required to take conservation or protection measures, if necessary, in specific areas to fulfil their duties stemming from the Habitats and Birds Directives. On the other hand, Member States are, to a great extent, deprived of their competence to fulfil these duties as soon as these measures possibly touch upon fisheries. There is an exclusive competence for the EU attached to the common fisheries policy of the EU. This article addresses this paradoxical situation by analysing the Habitats and Birds Directives on the one side, and the exclusive competence of the EU in the area of fisheries on the other. The article concludes by examining possible solutions to the paradox, hopefully constituting worthwhile contributions to an ungoing discussion. The article is a revised version of a report written on behalf of the Amsterdam International Law Clinic.
