AWFUL ALARM CLOCKS AND EVEN WORSE MORNINGS

Every day it’s the same thing, that damn alarm clock going off, way too early and way too loud, this way you can never wake up in a nice way. That’s why I went searching on the internet to find the best alarm clock. I came up with a top three alarm clocks that will wake you up in a pleasant way.

Rolls and leaps, from up to 3 feet, off your nightstand after one snooze. To really get you out of bed it will keep beeping random patterns and it will roll of your night stand and hide, the only way to shut up this alarm clock is to find it. It's safe to say you won't be catching any z's catching this clock.

[3]

This clock is a wireless clock that uses your home sound system to wake you up. This way you can choose to what sound or what song you want to wake up to. Simply touching the flute sets the snooze.

The hardest part about waking up is actually getting out of bed. There were some really smart people that came up with the perfect solution, an alarm clock that you can only turn off by standing on it. You can place it on the ground next to your bed like a little carpet or by the door, this way you are forced to get out of bed.


- BINGE DRINKING IN THE UK Teenagers like to go out and have a drink now and then. Growing up, I had four drinks when I went out at the age of sixteen. Nowadays, kids as young as thirteen drink more than that before they leave the house. With this type of drinking, these teenagers drink more than the teenagers that do not drink before going out, because they drink the same amount at the bar.

A different kind of genre with British TV series is drama. Skins is a dramatic TV series which includes a lot of humour and cursing. Some say Skins is too rude and revealing to the teen public, but the cast defends that the storylines are being ‘heightened for entertainment’. Storylines of this TV series have explored subjects like anorexia, mental illness, family problems, substance abuse and death. Every episode revolves around one teenager, interacting with other teenagers. Every episode has a different perspective of the teenager’s problems. This seven award winning TV series is being remade in the USA.

Humour can come in many forms and shapes. It can contain an emotional subject or it can express feelings towards someone, but the main point is that people enjoy it.

INTERVIEW

LANA DEL REY

Most certainly you have read a magazine once that had an interview in it, for example with you favourite movie star or your favourite musician. This is one of them. The people writing these interviews mostly arrange a meeting with this artist/actor and ask them questions. We decided to take the test and try to arrange an interview with a celebrity, and we picked Lana Del Rey. Or to be honest, I picked Lana Del Rey, because I had to interview her. Well, after deciding I would interview Miss Del Rey, I tried to get an appointment with her to interview her, in a hotel in Amsterdam because she has to perform here and wanted to see the stage. There was a woman sitting on a chair in the lobby of our hotel. I couldn’t see who it was, but when

LANA DEL REY

[7]

I came closer, she walked to me. It was a woman in a simple yellow dress and red Vans shoes. She welcomed me and smiled: it was Lana Del Rey. We decided to sit somewhere else, where there were no fans that could disturb our interview, and the big bosses from this magazine arranged some kind of setting in a conference room. We started talking and then she asked me: aren’t you going to ask me some questions? That reminded me that I had to take an interview with her and I started asking. Hello Miss Del Rey, Lana, Lana Del Rey, how are you today? LDR: I am fine, thanks! And you? I am fine too. Well, there is one question that we want to know the most: Where did you get the name Lana Del Rey?


LDR: When I was younger I felt like I wasn’t the person I was supposed to become yet. I had a vision for myself that was as beautiful as I wanted the music to be. I generally don’t deny my creative impulses so that was just one of those creative impulses that I had. You released your album ‘Born to Die’ a few years ago, did you expect it to be this successful? LDR: When I made that record, I brought it to a lot of different record labels and they weren’t interested in it because it was sort of weird. It wasn’t party music, my music was more down beat. People who got involved in it kind of got involved with it as a passion project. My photographer was my sister and my little brother was helping me. I was making my own movie stills from videos I took from YouTube. I have been doing that for a long time so I felt like if it was gonna work, it would have worked a long time ago. So no, I didn’t expect the success at all. That’s surprising! Well, we’ll go on to the questions the readers wanted me to ask you, because a lot of them are fans of you. Lets start with the first one: What are your three favourite movies? LDR: Don’t Look Back by D.A. Pennebaker that covers Bob Dylan’s 1965 concert tour in the UK. It’s fucking crazy! I love American Beauty and The Godfather part one and two.

what your favourite drink is. So, what is your favourite drink? I stopped drinking 10 years ago just because I felt like a person who like trying new things and feel different. You do things so fast, you end up having so many different lifestyles all in one short time. I think he did not expect this answer, maybe you can be an example for him. Another question: What’s your favourite colour? LDR: Blue and gold And the last question is the one I had to ask and I think has already been asked a lot. A lot of people tried to put your music into boxes, if you know what I mean. How would you describe your music? LDR: I would say it is film-made, really visual and reflective. Then she got called and she had to leave the building as soon as possible because she had an appointment elsewhere. I thanked her for her time and she promised we would see each other again soon at a concert (she gave me tickets). She walked out of the room and I was dazzled about her leaving so early.

You have a great taste! Here is another question from another fan, Felix Janssen is the guy called. He wants to ask you

People go on holiday, and they mostly take a photo or video camera with them. You take a lot of pictures of things that you know, tourist attractions for example, but also things you don’t know. Why do people do that? Are they going to use these pictures as a wallpaper for their laptop? Well, to be honest, I did the same. I went to London when I was 16, and I took a lot of pictures of interesting things, unfamiliar things and things that were that much photographed that if I would get one pence for every time, I would be a Quadra zillionaire. But what interested me the most, when I looked back at the pictures, were the pictures that I didn’t know what was on there. It was very impressive, but if somebody asked me why I took that picture I wouldn’t be able to give an answer. Well, now I will find answers. I’ve picked out some pictures that I took in London, and

I am very interested on what is the history, what the things were used for, and what is behind it, because I don’t want to be a person that takes random pictures of something. The first picture I found was this factory. And because I am very visual, I saw it as a table, turned upside down! A giant brown table with white legs, waiting to be turned the other way around. Add some giant chairs to it and put some food on it, there is the feast! But when I googled: ‘Big giant table upside down London’, I found NOTHING unfortunately. So I had to search for something else. Well, it has four chimneys, so it has to be a factory, because normal houses aren’t that big as this. and mostly don’t have big white chimneys. So when I searched for ‘big factory with four chimneys’ I found something interesting.! ! ! !

PHOTO HUNT 2

Pink Floyd, that band? Yes, that band! This factory is on the album of a Pink Floyd album called ‘Animals’! Surprising, isn’t it? Well, from now on it was very easy to find out what it is: it is a former power station, called the Battersea Power Station. The power station was built in the 1930’s and the other part in the 1950’s and became decommission in the 1980’s. It was a coal fired power station, which means that it used coal to make electricity. A lot of homes have been provided by electricity from this factory! When I found this picture, I knew some things about this church because of a guided tour. This church stands in Whitechapel, a suburb of London. Does Whitechapel sound familiar to you? It should, because this was the neigbourhood Jack the Ripper committed his murders. This church was well known as a place the prostitutes would go to pray for god to forget their sins. After praying they went on the street and pleasure men, so they would be protected by god.


3 But unfortunately some of them weren’t, and the story goes one Ripper victim left the church and got cut up not very far from the church. Aside from that it is a beautiful church, built somewhere between 1714 and 1729, and has served as a shelter for homeless people. Interesting to know is that the church is an Anglican Church, and the full name is: Christ Church Spitalfields.

This isn’t just a monument, because nobody less than Adolf Hitler wanted to ship this monument to Berlin if he had conquered England, but unfortunately for him he did not manage that. The column (that’s the best term for this statue) was refurbished in 2006, and those refurbishments costs were 420.000 pounds. Fun facts about this pillar are that there have been people climbing it, for TV or to bring attention to certain aspects. One of the most It is very impressive to see a big pillar in London. So impressive ones must be the climb of Gary Connery, impressive that I took the effort to take a picture of it. who base jumped from the pillar to raise attention to You can see a pillar with a guy on the top. The rest the situation in Tibet during the Chinese regime. was a secret to me, because I was too lazy to read what was on the plaque on the pillar. But when you take the time to do some research about the pillar, it is time well spent. This pillar is a monument for a man called Admiral Horatio Nelson, and stands on Trafalgar Square, in front of the National Gallery. This is for a reason, because Admiral Nelson died in the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. This monument was requested by the people, and the commonwealth wanted the people to design the monument.

[11]


While walking through the British Museum, I found one of the largest Greek and Roman galleries in the world. There were a lot of statues and other faces from marble, but this one intrigued me. I really don’t know why, but after some research I found out that the person on this picture is Pericles, one of the most prominent and influential Greek statesmen. This statesman was also very influential in bringing the culture back to life, and showed the people that culture is very important for everybody in the Greek empire.

just keep calm and walk outside and wait. We did not wait, we just walked away, but you could see hundreds of people walking away from the museum, and it turned out that somebody accidentally pressed at a button unfortunately.

Did you ever expect that I could find that much information about the pictures I made but did not know why? Do you have pictures of which you do not know what is on them? Just take the effort to find out! It is very interesting but it can take a lot of time if you have some difficult pictures and vague photo’s. For the people that do not This picture remembers me of that want to research the things that day I was at the museum. After are on the picture, you can still walking around for almost two take pictures and let other people hours, a bell rang. do it. But why shouldn’t you? Then an alarm went off. We were being evacuated, because there was a fire. We had to line up and

In between, Neuer produced a superb last-ditch block to thwart Lewandowski, who had deftly rolled Jerome Boateng from a Reus pass, as the play passed from one end to the other at breathless speed. It looked as if another major final was set to pass Robben by, but on the hour he atoned for his earlier misses by creating the opening goal. Ribery rolled a pass towards the byline and Robben evaded the offside trap by a matter of inches before nudging the ball beyond Weidenfeller and crossing for Mandzukic to hook the ball home from a yard. Dortmund might have been forgiven for feeling deflated given their first-half exertions, but instead they drew level. Dante was penalized for an untidy high foul on Reus inside the area and Gundogan steered his penalty into the bottom-right corner to send the hordes of yellow-shirted fans behind Neuer’s goal leaping from their seats. Moments later, Dortmund were indebted to a breathtaking piece of defending from Neven Subotic, who slid in to hook Mueller’s goal-bound shot off the line as Robben closed in for a tap-in. But Bayern continued to push, Weidenfeller repelling fierce strikes from David Alaba and Bastian Schweinsteiger, before Robben tiptoed through the Dortmund defence to score a famous late winner.

ROADTRIP

We want to advice a really nice trip through England. Read more about the highlights of England. ___________________________ The trips starts at the “White Cliffs”. The White Cliffs are huge chalk cliffs. The length of the cliffs is 24 kilometers. From the ferry to Dover, you have a beautiful view and you’ll see the huge cliff. This sight is perfect for a walk and a lovely picnic. The cliffs are white because of the chalk and erosion of the sea and wind. The parts that look greener, are a result of actions people took to counter the erosion. If you like to swim, you can go to the beach of Dover, but it is very crowdie in the summer. Luckily there is another beach. The beach of Folkestone is better for small children. The sea of Dover is deeper than the sea of Folkestone.

in the 12th century. The castle was named “Key to England”. You can also visit the Secret Wartime Tunnels with a guide. This is only for the adventure tourist, because they say it is a little bit spooky. The tunnels have served a strategic military role. The saved people from fire and bombs. Nowadays the tunnels are used for exhibition and information about the cold war and the First War.

If you drive a few hours, you will arrive in London. A beautiful city and enough attractions to visit. I recommend the London Eye. You got a really amazing view from here and you can see how the city is built. The tour takes 30 minutes. The wheel is the biggest wheel in the whole world. And if you got the time to spend your evening in the city, I would say you need to go to the musical “We will rock you”. It is typical Do you prefer to see old buildings, English and it is a great go to the castle of Dover. It is on experience. the White Cliffs. The castle is built

[17]


The musical is not just a performance, but it is an overwhelming show. It is for the younger people, older people and family or just for going out. If you just want to drive through London, then drive over the Tower Bridge. The Bridge was built, because of the people who wanted a new connection between the eastern and western part of London. More than 50 people sent in a conception and in 1884 was Horace Jones selected to build the bridge. It took 8 years to finish the project. Unfortunately, Jones died before the bridge was finished.

The next stop is Oxford, home of the great University. The Oxford University is the oldest one in England. The history of the Church in Oxford tells us that they gave money to the university for giving lessons. The Church was also a place where you could follow lessons. Early 20th century Oxford became bigger and bigger. The industrial and population growth, cause of the printing and publishing industry. The city splits in east Oxford, the industrial side of the city, and the western part, the university part of Oxford. It is a beautiful city to walk through or go shopping. There are many bookstores and there is a huge library. Of course there are regular shops like cloths or souvenirs.

the beautiful spots and the amazing architecture of the city. The boat flows over the river, Ouse. For more adventure you can hire your own boat, and see the city from the water, by yourself. A nice view is also possible in York. On the top of the hill there is a medieval castle. At this point, you can look to the northern part of England.

Next stop is also perfect for children. It is Alnwick. It had a beautiful medieval castle and if you are looking around, you will think, you have seen it before. Don’t worry, you might have actually seen it before! The castle is used for the movies of Harry Potter, but only the outside. The children can dress up like a knight or another person from the past. Don’t be jealous, adults can dress up as well. If you feel like a knight or a queen, you can play the medieval crafts at the marketplace and test you courage at the dark room, full of dragons.

A nice museum for kids is the Jorvik Vinking Centre in York. This is an archeological museum about the Vikings. A lot of things to do for children and there is a “time machine” which takes you to the history of the Vikings. It is a kind of wagon and shows how the Vikings survived and lived. You can see dolls, who are moving and talking and there is a village with all the things what is founded. If you want to relax and see the city, there is an opportunity for a tour boat. These boat will show all

[18]

If you are curious, you can look inside the castle. The “big house” belongs to the family of Percy and there are personal touches you can find in the castle. The highlights are the library, the dining room and the drawing room, make sure you don’t miss this.


We will show you the capital of Scotland. Yes, we arrived at Edinburgh. Before Edinburgh was a city, it was just a fort. Around 1000 before Christ, the Romans took the fort. In the 10th century, the Scottish people took finally the fort back and king Malcolm III built the first castle. In the 13th century, the city burned down, but the people decided anyway that Edinburgh would be the capital of Scotland. Nowadays, they city is much bigger than only a fort.

And on top hill Calton is a monument in the Greek style. Edinburgh got a zoo, which is nice for small children or for people who love the nature, there is a Botanic Garden. The Garden started as a garden with medical plants but the garden now hasa lot of different plants and that’s the main reason why it became a touristic place. Edinburgh is beautiful and a great mix of old architecture and new architecture.

In the summer there always is the Edinburgh Festival. A festival with all kind of music and dances and even opera is a theme.

COLUMN WHAT WOULD I DO WITH ONE MILLION POUNDS

What would I do when I have one million pound? This is a question that was asked to me recently and back then I couldn’t think of an answer but I thought about it and I thought I could share it with you guys. The first thing I would do with one million pound is make sure that I have money when I am retired or without a job. Because I think that those are very important things to think about especially when you have a family of your own. This way there will always be a savings when you need one.

family, friends, and for once only think about each other. There are only two more things I would do with the money that is left. Third thing I want to do is get a place for our own, move out of our student apartment and get a real apartment with all own things and own shower. I am getting pretty mature and this will just be the next step in a relationship I think.
