Hoe maak je een eigen hoepel?

Een hoepel om mee te hoepelen, die wilde ik vroeger heel graag hebben. Het was een hele rage, en op school waren alle meiden aan het hoepelen, met de mooiste hoepels. Had je geen hoepel, dan hoorde je er (bijna) niet meer bij! Gelukkig mocht ik er uiteindelijk ook eentje kopen, dus samen met mijn moeder naar het winkelcentrum geweest. Daar mocht ik er een uitzoeken, dat was best lastig kiezen! Uiteindelijk heb ik gekozen voor een mooie roze met heel veel vrolijke glitterkleurtjes. Ik was superblij, dat weet ik nog heel goed. En de winkelier ook, want hij verkocht ze als warme broodjes.

Maak zelf je eigen hoola hoop!

Wist je, dat je een hoepel heel makkelijk zelf maken kan? Vroeger maakte men namelijk gewoon een hoepel van een lang stuk PVC-buis. Dat kan je goedkoop kopen in de doe-het-zelf zaak. De hoepel moet een doorsnede hebben van 1 meter, dus de buis moet wel 3,2 meter lang zijn. Je kan het misschien ook al in de winkel op maat laten knippen? Ze rollen het wat voor je op zodat je het makkelijk mee kan nemen.

  1. Steek een stuk hout voor de helft in de ene kant van de buis, het moet net goed in de buis vast passen.
  2. Buig de buis in het rond en steek de andere kant van de buis over de andere helft van het stuk hout. (Snap je hem nog? )

Leg de hoepel op je heupen en beweeg je heupen snel van links, naar achteren, naar rechts en naar voren. Flink draaien dus! Probeer zo de hoepel draaiende te houden. Je kan hem ook om andere ledematen laten draaien, of om je nek, je voet, etc. Of meerdere hoepels laten draaien. Maar uitleggen hoef ik het vast niet verder.

Heb jij vroeger ook gehoepeld?

Power cable by Schiermonnikoog
Nature is invariably confused with emptiness. Also by Eric Wiebes, in his last week as Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate. He identified Schiermonnikoog and the mudflats underneath as the ideal place for two gigantic power lines. They must connect a future wind farm with the Eemshaven. The cable can also be around the mud flats, but that's more expensive. That's why the mud is UNESCO World Heritage Site and protected by European. Yet the Ministry of Economic Affairs can do what it wants, as long as biologists can't make it hard for nature to break down. But about nature we especially do not know a lot. You don't buy anything for question marks, and so nature is screwed.. At Schiermonnikoog, less than a thousand people live, and the mudflats seem empty. But with over ten thousand species of plants and animals, there's an explosion of biodiversity. Rare plants and animals besides, because there are only a handful of such tidal regions in the world. The Wadden Sea is the largest. Wanderfilm Schiermonnikoog -The Wadden That's why the mud is UNESCO World Heritage Site and protected by European. Yet the Ministry of Economic Affairs can do what it wants, as long as biologists can't make it hard for nature to break down. But about nature we especially do not know a lot. You don't buy anything for question marks, and so nature is screwed.. The Wadden Sea is a natural area of global importance, divided into three countries and surrounded by densely populated areas. The main threats to the area are mainly fisheries, industry, ports and shipping. Population developments, tourism and climate change are also a threat. It is therefore essential to ensure that the protection and conservation of the Wadden Sea play an important role in the planning and regulation of human co-use. In 1992, the European Union adopted a directive on the protection of special habitats: the Habitats Directive. The Habitats Directive covers lists of plant and animal species and natural habitats that deserve additional protection. Birds are excluded from this because a separate directive (the Birds Directive) has already been introduced before. The Habitats Directive prohibits an activity if the protection zone is affected by it. The Habitats Directive also refers to a 'proper assessment' of environmental impacts before an activity in the protection zone is authorised. Habitats to be protected include 'permanent with seawater of shallow depth On the intercession of D66, the House of Representatives will debate with ministers Bas van't Wout (Economic Affairs) and Carola Schouten (Nature) about the power lines to be dug under Schiermonnikoog. Apart from CDA, VVD, ChristenUnie and DENK, the entire House of Representatives supported the request of D66'er Tjeerd de Groot. He mentions the intention of the empire to dig a cable through the Wadden Island, an unblessed plan” that can seriously harm nature on Schiermonnikoog,,”.

The Pinch
We are cycling, Jan likes to be on the pedals, my tongue is almost on the handlebar, not an ideal position. In the park is a short distance from the path, a work of art: a flathheye wooden structure in the shape of a clothespin. Jan never has an eye for art, I think it's funny, it looks like the pin is holding a mountain of grass and wants to take a closer look at it. But culturally barbarian Jan has no message to this. The underlying distance grows. “Hey, Jan, don't ride so fast! Take a look around you, enjoy nature!' Jan holds in for a moment, looks skitfully to the left. “I don't ride so hard for nothing. You see that giant pincher? Who stands for treachery. The ground is waving, the earth is moving, I'm telling you, something is not fluff!' 'That's just an art object.' “No, it doesn't look like art in the farthest distance. It's a giant pincher, you hear?? The Pinch of a Giant! And you see what it's on?' My heart is pounding, I have aroused his interest, now nonchalance feigning. “On a grassy shedding. What cares that?.' “Don't you feel the earth trembling? It's not an ordinary grass huvel, sure not!' “And, Jan, what do you think it would be??' “A disguised giant. He lies. He sleeps. restless. He sleeps onrustig. It would also make me restless when I lie under the sods of grass.' 'And the pincher who's definitely standing on his nose, 'I hear how ridiculous this sounds, his fantasy has taken a walk with him. “Hahaha, Jan, I think you've contracted a Danian contagion.' “Don't laugh! It is so. The pincher is on his nose.' “And then why?' “To stop the snoring, duh.' “And where do you get that wisdom from?' “Do you hear someone snoring?' 'No.' 'Well then! Facts don't lie. I'm telling you, we have to cycle fast before the giant wakes up.' “And why would the giant wake up?' “Everyone wakes up over time. Only in fairy tales sleeps a few hundred years.' 'There's no pin in there.. But wait, I want to take a picture of it first! You don't see a giant pincher every day.' 'I'll app to the other side of the park. There are also a few silly individuals watching, who can shoot a picture, we are also on.' 'Tight plan!' Jan sends the app and we continue our way. #shortstory
