    - Y-DNA Terminal SNP is I-FGC15105, subgroep van I-FGC15109, wat een subgroep is van haplogroep I-M223, wat op zichzelf een subgroep is van I-M170.
    - Deze mutatie deed zich voor bij een man, ongeveer 17.400 jaar geleden en M223 is een van de 23 SNP's die zijn afgeleid (+) op de I-M223-knoop. We weten niet welke van de 23 SNP's het eerst muteerde en welke het laatst. Alle mannen die zijn afgeleid voor M223 delen een gemeenschappelijke voorouder die minstens 13.200 tot 10.800 jaar geleden leefde.
    - Y-DNA Haplogroep I-M170 is een onderdeel van de Europese genenpool voor Y-chromosoom, goed voor gemiddeld 18% van de totale vaderlijke afstamming. Zijn virtuele afwezigheid elders, inclusief het Nabije Oosten, suggereert dat het in Europa ontstond, waarschijnlijk vóór het Laatste Glaciale Maximum.
    - Haplogroep I-M170 is overwegend een Europese haplogroep en wordt beschouwd als de enige inheemse Europese haplogroep. Het is te vinden in de meerderheid van de huidige Europese populaties met pieken in Noord- en Zuidoost-Europa.
    - De TMRCA (tijd tot de meest recente gemeenschappelijke voorouder) voor I-M170 werd geschat op 22.200 jaar geleden, met een betrouwbaarheidsinterval tussen 15.300-30.000 jaar geleden. Dit zou de oprichtingsgebeurtenis van I-M170 ongeveer gelijktijdig maken met het Laatste Glaciale Maximum (LGM), dat duurde van 26.500 jaar geleden tot ongeveer 19.500 jaar geleden.

    My lovely wife Hélène in the Boymans-van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam. The museum is noted for its collection of Dutch and Flemish works of art. The original collection was bequeathed to the city of Rotterdam in 1847 by F.J.O. Boymans, a city councilman. In 1958 the collection of Daniel George van Beuningen was acquired, and the Boymans Museum was renamed the Boymans van Beuningen Museum.

    At the end of my medical training in 1972 (doing the long hair thing !) I did a long intership in internal medicine in the Zuiderziekenhuis (Southern Hospital) in Rotterdam. Under the direction of Harry Ramdas, one of the senior house staff members. I have good memories of those days, very busy, working long hours and a lot of nightshifts, but I gained a lot of clinical experience by extensive practical training in the area of patient care.

I think he specialised as a psychiatrist and in the back Jan van der Ham, who became a gynaecologist.

    My grandparents moved from Vlissingen to Dordrecht around 1920 and lived initially in a small two room house in the Heymansuisstraat, later in the Marienbornstraat nr. 9, the Jacob Catsstraat no. 65, the Hoofdstraat and afterwards in the Kofstraat nr.4 (around 1933). My parents who married in 1942, lived on the upper floor of the Kofstraat nr.4 untill around 1950. The house is now renovated, but I was born there, 19-09-1949 in the little right room on the first floor. The room on the upper left was a small kitchen and the living (and sleeping) room was to the back. My grandparents lived all those years downstairs.

    PS:"Dancing in the Dark" is a 1984 song, written and performed by American rock singer Bruce Springsteen. Adding up-tempo synthesizer riffs and some syncopation to his sound for the first time, it became his biggest hit and, as the first single released from Born in the U.S.A., started it off to becoming the best-selling album of Springsteen's career.

    Ik was Res. 1e Luitenant Arts van de 435 Infanterie Bewakingscompagnie, Van Heutz, Chassékazerne, Breda, 1974-1975.
    Ik was Res. 1e Luitenant Arts van de 435 Infanterie Bewakingscompagnie, Van Heutz, Chassékazerne, Breda, 1974-1975.
    In 1898 werd begonnen met de bouw van de kazerne, de oplevering was op 1 juli 1899. Genie-officier W. Cool vervaardigde in twee maanden de ontwerpen voor de kazerne en werd vervolgens met de uitvoering belast. Toen de kazerne in augustus 1899 was voltooid, oordeelde men haar de mooiste en doelmatigste in het land. Het exercitieterrein diende ook als paardenrenbaan voor de Harddraverij- en Renvereniging.

    Het gebouw van 108 meter breed heeft in het midden een mooie facade. Het bestaat uit twee woonlagen. Het beschikt over diverse hoektorentjes, kantelen en imitatie-schietgaten. De bouwstijl is Neorenaissance. In de portiek voor de hoofdingang is het wapenschild van generaal baron David Hendrik Chassé en een schild met de plattegrond van de citadel van Antwerpen. De voordeuren waren van djatihout met grote hengels. Achter de voorgevel is een ondiep gebouw met een gang met aan een zijde kamers. Aan de achterzijde zijn vier paviljoens. De kazerne was oorspronkelijk bestemd voor twee bataljons (2000 man). Door verbouwingen is er weinig van het oorspronkelijke interieur overgebleven.

    In 1994 zijn het bibliotheekinterieur en het verenigingslokaal voor de officieren gedemonteerd en is de laatstgenoemde als pronkkamer weer opgebouwd in het "Museum Korps Rijdende Artillerie" op de legerplaats bij Oldebroek, 't Harde.

    Tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog waren er in de kazerne opleidingseenheden van de Kriegsmarine. In 1948 werd het Artillerieschool, later Artillerie Opleidingscentrum. In 1952 werd de Claudius Prinsenlaan aangelegd. In 1993 verhuisde het Artillerie Opleidingscenrum naar Oldebroek. Van 1994-1995 werd de kazerne bewoond door asielzoekers. In juni 1998 begon rondom de Chassékazerne de bouw van de wijk Chassé Park ontworpen door Rem Koolhaas. In 1998 werden het Stadsarchief en het Breda's Museum in de Chassékazerne ondergebracht. In gebouw F is de culturele instelling de Stadsgalerij Breda gevestigd.

    My DNA (FamTreeDNA) Origins, Europe 100%.
    My DNA (FamTreeDNA) Origins, Europe 100%.
    Until the middle Pleistocene Great Britain was a peninsula of Europe, connected by the massive chalk Weald–Artois Anticline across the Straits of Dover. During the Anglian glaciation, about 450,000 years ago, an ice sheet filled much of the North Sea, with a large proglacial lake in the southern part fed by the Rhine, the Scheldt and the Thames.

    Doggerland was an area of land, now submerged beneath the southern North Sea, that connected Great Britain to continental Europe. It was flooded by rising sea levels around 6500–6200 BCE. Geological surveys have suggested that it stretched from what is now the east coast of Great Britain to what are now the Netherlands, the western coast of Germany and the peninsula of Jutland. It was probably a rich habitat with human habitation in the Mesolithic period.

    Around 7000 BC the Ice Age had ended and Mesolithic European hunter-gatherers had migrated from their refuges to recolonize the continent, including Doggerland which later submerged beneath the rising North Sea. The majority of western European males belonged to Y-haplogroup I and northeast Europeans to haplogroup R1a. Other minor male lineages such as R1b, G, J, T and E would also have been present in Europe, having migrated from the Asian Steppe, the Middle East and North Africa.

    The most up-to-date research into these ancient migrations on the European Continent suggests that there were three major groups of people that have had a lasting effect on present day peoples of European descent: Hunter-Gatherers, Early Farmers, and Metal Age Invaders.

    Le port d'Amsterdam, Jacques Brel
    Le port d'Amsterdam, Jacques Brel
    Le port d'Amsterdam combines a powerful melancholic crescendo with a rich poetic account of the exploits of sailors on shore leave in Amsterdam.

    The tune is a slightly modified version of the traditional English folk song Greensleeves. Brel never recorded this for a studio album, and his only version was released on the live album.

    Brel worked on the song at his house overlooking the Mediterranean at Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, the house he shared with Sylvie Rivet, a publicist for Philips; a place she had introduced him to in 1960. It was the ideal place for him to create, and to indulge his passion for boats and planes. One morning at six o'clock he read the words of Amsterdam to Fernand, a restaurateur who was about to set off fishing for scorpion fish and conger eels for the bouillabaisse. Overcome, Fernand broke out in sobs and cut open some sea urchins to help control his emotion.

    In 1894, sheet music publishers Edward B. Marks and Joe Stern hired electrician George Thomas and various performers to promote sales of their song "The Little Lost Child". Using a magic lantern, Thomas projected a series of still images on a screen simultaneous to live performances. This would become a popular form of entertainment known as the illustrated song, the first step toward music video.
