The 2022 World Cup comes with a surge of nationalism as well as intense scrutiny of host nation Qatar and the financial power of Gulf States in general. State-owned sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) are major shareholders in Western industrial and cultural assets. Is that a cause for concern? FASoS' Adam Dixon has some answers.
Het WK voetbal gaat gepaard met zowel een golf van nationalisme als zeer kritische aandacht voor het gastland Qatar en de financiŽle macht van de Golfstaten in het algemeen. Staatsinvesteringsfondsen zijn belangrijke aandeelhouders van westerse industriŽle en culturele activa. Is dat reden tot bezorgdheid? Adam Dixon van FASoS heeft antwoorden.

Eleanor Roosevelt was the wife of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the United States' longest serving president, who held office from 1933 until 1945, four terms in total. Introducing Eleanor like this does not do her justice. She was certainly much more than "the wife of Franklin D. Roosevelt." She was an activist, a feminist, a mother of six, and a political figure well ahead of her time. Eleanor was also controversial in her role as first lady, not only because their marriage was more of a political partnership, but even more so because of her outspokenness when it came to civil rights and the role of women in the workplace and in society.

Professor of Clinical Chemistry Yvonne Henskens has prepared for this interview by laying out her most important cookbooks and whipping up a fig cake with eggs from her own chickens. "I prefer to make everything myself: bread, cheese, mayonnaise. I want to know how it works-in that sense I'm still a chemist." Over four years ago, she started the food blog Ontroerend Lekker with a friend from her university days. They post not only about their favourite recipes, cookbooks and restaurants, but also background information about nutrition. As icing on the cake, through the blog she also met her new partner.
