Deventer murder trial
Today, some interesting developments in the Deventer murder trial were announced. A team of the police has been
researching the case again. They found two pieces of evidence suggesting
that Mrs. Jaqueline Wittenberg was murdered on Friday, September 24, 1999
and not on the day before. This would rule out Ernest Louwes as the
murderer because he has an alibi for that day. (Many years ago, some lay
person already had concluded based on the report of the state of the body
when it was found, that it was very unlikely that she was murdered on
September 23.) Moreover, forensic doctors say that based on all available
photos and research material there are indications that the body has been
moved 6 to 24 hours after the murder. This would mean that someone has
been on the crime scene before the body was found. (It was already known
that the body was moved from, most likely, the hall to the living room
before the picture of her late husband. Some lay person has concluded that
the seven stabbing wounds were made after the body was moved.) There is also
mentioning of new perpetrator knowledge was discovered. The details of this
are not revealed. (This could point to an other suspect that is being
investigated at this moment.)
In addition, the investigators discovered a crucial mistake regarding the
phone call that Louwes made to his client, the victim, on the evening
of September 23. Louwes declared that he made the phone call 'on the A28, near
Harderwijk'. But in the police report this was mistakenly interpreted as a
call from 't Harde, which is a difference of at least 8 kilometers. This
also invalidates an important statement by expert witnesses with respect to
the possibility that the phone call was picked-up from Deventer. Faced
with this new information, expert witness J. Rijnderslaan from KPN Security,
has retracted a rather incriminating statement against Louwes, and he
encourages other experts to do the same.
75% or more
Since last Thursday, bookshop Broekhuis is
giving 75% off on all books at the former Polare / De Slegte location. But
often it is even more, because the prices are rounded down. At 17:56:22, I
bought the book Jaloezie by Catherine Millet, ISBN:9789023462774, for
only half a Euro.
In the past week the sixth and seventh leaf of the
little magnolia plant have become fully grown. The start of the eight
leaf is already visible. The leaves are becoming bigger and bigger, but
still only half the length of an average leaf on the mother tree.
Finals AKI 2014
I decided to have a look at Tetem and I
discovered that the 'Finals AKI 2014' exhibition
was held there, and in the AKI ArtEZ building
At Tetem, I saw the works of, among others, Mercedes Marin and Pauli Beutel. In the main building, I:
- Saw the trailer for the Modicum movie
by Christian Hecht.
- Looked at the installation by Paul Schick with images projected
on water sprayed from the ceiling giving some interesting 3D effect.
- Experienced the
installation by Julian Rotter.
- Talked a long time with Madelon Pels about her works. She was busy with cutting flowers
- Looked at the posters made by Kim de Jong. I took one card from her
exhibition with the text "De mens is het enige levende wezen dat weet
dat het sterfelijk is en dat lacht" ("Humans are the only living beings
that know that they are mortal en who laugh").
- Looked at the books that Kiki
Meekels had put on eleven numbered chairs. Each book contains many
empty pages and some pictures she made during a day she spend with a
person she knew from Facebook.
- Looked at the wall of books being part of Reincarnate books by Nicole Pietruschka (blog).
- Talked with Jasmijn
about her clever experiments she had made with books.
- Looked at the final thesis of Oriëtta Batzakis.
- Looked at the 'pop-up store' by Lobke Stroet which she had completely made by herself. I also talked
a little with her.
I also visited 21Rozendaal, the last of three places where the finals
exhibition was held. There I watched the movie "Part of the Empire/Plague"
(trailer) by Jeffry Spekenbrink
consisting of time-laps fragments for which he composed the music. In this
sense it reminded me of Koyaanisqatsi.
I also looked at the book "Showing my father the world" by
Gunter Gruben from
a project with the same title. I fear that there is only one copy of
Today, it was the last day that books were sold (with a 75% discount)
at the location of the former De Slegte
bookshop. In the last half hour before they closed at 4 PM, I looked
around, seeing if there was any book that I still would like to buy,
but I could find non, not even when I was told at the end, that I could
take some for free (because I had been such a frequent customer). I
think, it was because I already had bought all the books that I did
find interesting in the past months. At the moment, I have a whole
stack of books that I still need to put in my bookshelves. They have to leave the shop empty by July first,
and someone was already busy with taking down the shelves along the
walls and not without making some loud noises.

I try keep track of our gas usage and milages. For
this purpose, I always fill up the gas tank and note down the distance we
travelled. Our car also has a milage indicator but it is not always very
reliable. Last week, Annabel got some gas, but
she did not fill up the tank, because the price was quite high. Now I don't
know how much gas was used during both periods. But I can use the readings
from the milage indicator to make a good guess. Annabel filled 20.02 liter of
gas and noted down a distance of 586.5 Km with a milage reading of 15.6 Km/l.
Yesterday, I filled 35.55 liter with a distance of 309.6 Km and a milage
reading of 16.0 Km/l. The total distance traveled is 896.1 Km and the total
gas is 55.57 liter, which gives an average milage of about 16.1256 Km/l. The
weighted milage according to the indicator is equal to (15.6 * 586.5 + 16.0 *
309.6) / 896.1, which is: 15.7382 Km/l. This means that the reported values of
the milage indicator have to be multiplied with 1.02461 to arrive at an
estimation of the true usage during the given periode. This results in an
estimated usage of 36.69 liter of gas during the first periode and 18.88 liter
during the second periode. These add up to 55.57 liter for both periodes.
Yesterday, I paid € 61.47. But taking into accound the estimated
gas usage during the last periode, it means that actually only
€ 32.65 was used. The remained has to be added up to the amount
of the first periode (€ 35.42) resulting in € 64.24.
Now I can use these numbers to calculate how much Annabel has to pay for gas
that she used during both periods based on the administration that we keep,
assuming that she agrees with the above calculations, of course.
