Funny memes as residents of Rotterdam are going to throw eggs on Bezos' yacht, for which the bridge will be dismantled

1 year ago

Residents of the Dutch city of Rotterdam are planning to throw rotten eggs on the Y721 superyacht of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos when it passes the historic Koningshaven bridge, the structure must be specially dismantled for this. 

On the event page, Rotterdamers are asked to bring a package of rotten eggs or tomatoes to throw at Bezos' yacht. The event is scheduled for June 1, more than 17 thousand people are already interested in it, of which almost 4 thousand are going to come to the bridge. “Rotterdam was built from rubble by residents and we can’t just take it apart for the phallic symbol of a megalomaniac billionaire. Not without a fight! — wrote the organizer of the event, Pablo Strörmann.

Last week, city officials announced the partial removal of the bridge to allow Bezos' $485 million yacht, which is 40 meters high, to pass into the sea. It is expected that the dismantling will take several weeks and will take place in the summer, and the structure will be restored in its current form at the expense of the billionaire. At the same time, the mayor of Rotterdam, Ahmed Abutaleb, said that a final decision had not yet been made.

Koningshaven Bridge was built in the 19th century, it was restored after the bombings during the Second World War, and in 2000 the object was declared a historical monument. After a major overhaul in 2017, the local council promised that the bridge would never be taken down again.

Dutch defenders of old architecture have said they will throw rotten eggs on Jeff Bezos' superyacht if Rotterdam City Hall decides to dismantle part of the 140-year-old Koningshaven (De Hef) bridge, reports De Havenloods. The city is considering temporarily dismantling one of the sections of the iconic metal structure so that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos' new Y721 sailing superyacht can safely overcome this so far impenetrable barrier on its water transportation route.

The rotten egg idea came from an activist named Pablo Strörmann. Ready in case of something to join the protest in this form, he is looking for in Facebook.

“Rotterdam has actually been rebuilt from rubble by locals and we are not going to just let it be taken apart for the sake of a phallic symbol of a megalomaniac billionaire,” Strörmann wrote on the social network with a determined attitude.

At the time of publication of the news, Strörmann's call was of interest to 13,750 people. They agree with Bezos, the initiator of the besieging of the yacht, that having a huge fortune does not give the right to do everything only in accordance with their desires.

Last week, the mayor of Rotterdam denied reports that a final decision had already been made on the temporary dismantling of the bridge, which was overhauled in 2017. However, Jeff Bezos, as the owner of the yacht and its builder Oceanco, even if they changed their mind and did not insist on dismantling the bridge section, has no alternative course of action. Oceanco built the yacht upriver in the town of Alblasserdam, and from there there is no other route capable of taking the giant ship to the sea.

Part of a historic bridge in the Netherlands will be dismantled to allow the superyacht built for Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to cross the river that runs through Rotterdam, city officials said Thursday.

The middle section of the 95-year-old Koningshaven Bridge will be dismantled this summer to allow a sailing yacht to pass, a spokeswoman for the city of Rotterdam said. The bridge, known as "De Hef", will then be rebuilt, possibly on the same day.

According to a spokesman, Bezos' yacht must pass under all other bridges in Rotterdam. They didn't have an estimate of how much the deconstruction would cost, but she said the shipbuilder would pay, not the people of Rotterdam. There will be no structural changes to the bridge.

Amazon representatives did not respond to requests for comment on the price or destination of the yacht. A spokeswoman for Oceanco, the Dutch yacht company that builds the boat, said in an email Thursday that she could not comment on projects under construction or clients due to privacy concerns.

Boat International, which publishes articles on the superyacht industry, said the 417-foot sailboat will be the largest sailing yacht in the world when completed later this year, surpassing Sea Cloud, a 360-foot sailing vessel built in 1931 and owned by Yacht Portfolio, an investment company based in Malta.

Mister. Bezos is the second richest person in the world, after Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

The bridge, which is 130 feet long, is not currently in use. Rotterdam tour guide Eddy Le Couvreur said the bridge, designed by Dutch architect Peter Josting and anchored on the Rotterdam skyline, was once used for rail traffic. A vertical drawbridge, it was the first of its kind in the Netherlands and was copied from designs in the United States. The modern industrial aesthetic of the bridge inspired a short film in 1928, he said.

So far, tall ships have passed under the bridge before the masts and taller structures are assembled, he said.

Dennis Tuck, a Labor Party member of the Rotterdam City Council, said he was not opposed to removing the bridge as Mr. Bezos was paying for it - because of the jobs that were to be done on the bridge. “This is a great way for the city to take some of its money,” he said. So said.

This structure is more than just a bridge for the people of Rotterdam,” said Siebe Thyssen, author of The Boy Who Jumped from the Bridge, about a working-class man who jumped off the bridge in 1933. “This is a monument. ," he said. "That's the personality of Rotterdam."

There were big protests when city officials tried to demolish the bridge in the 1990s because it was no longer in use, he said. According to him, the bridge is a reminder of the old days in Rotterdam.

"I think that's why there's so much confusion around Jeff Bezos and his boat," he said, before turning to the allegations against Amazon. "People say, 'Why this guy?' It's a working city, and they all know that Jeff Bezos exploits his workers, of course, so people say, "Why can this guy take down the bridge for his boat?"

As of Thursday, about 500 Facebook users have said they will take part in an event called "Egg Throwing at Jeff Bezos' Superyacht," where they gather at the bridge to throw eggs at the boat. The person listed as the organizer of the event did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mr. Le Couvreur, who works for Tours by Locals, which connects tourists with local guides, said Rotterdam residents are likely to receive international attention and watch the spectacle. “On the other hand, it shows the unimaginable wealth that people like Bezos have created for themselves, that nothing can stop them from fulfilling their dreams and passions. Worlds, except for those who will watch the ship pass through the city.

While extroverts are the soul of parties and social circles, always surrounded by friends and an infectious energy aura, introverts are known to be rather antisocial or boring, although not everyone understands what it means to be an introvert.

Studies show that introverts process information completely differently from extroverts. Because they have a rich inner world, introverts find it difficult to process information received from the outside, so their speed of reaction and manifestation is low, while extroverts react quickly to stimuli.

According to The Introvert Advantage study by Marti Olsen Laney, introverts have a longer neural pathway to process external stimuli. Information flows in this neural pathway and contributes to long-term memory and planning. In other words, it is much more complicated for introverts to process interactions and events. While processing information, introverts are very attentive to their thoughts and the feelings it provokes.

Another study, signed by psychologist Hans Eysenck, shows that introverts need little external stimulation to be awake and in position for any eventuality, while extroverts feed on it. Introverts also need less dopamine to be happy.

Another difference between the two typologies is represented by the fact that the brain of extroverts works on the basis of burning nervous energy, while the brain of introverts works on the basis of conserving nervous energy. That's why introverts feel satisfied and full of energy when they read, when they think of something deep, or when they explore their rich world of ideas.

The container ship Ever Given, which blocked the Suez Canal last week, has returned to the waterline, according to a statement from the authorities managing the corridor between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean, according to Business Insider.

The course of the ship has been corrected by 80%, and the maneuvers will be resumed as soon as the water level starts to rise again.

Stock markets reacted shortly after the announcement, as oil prices began to fall. The price of a barrel of Brent Crude oil fell at one point by 2%, while West Texas Intermediate fell by 1.1% to $ 60.3 a barrel.

The results show that the pressure on global supply chains is beginning to wane, as local authorities say they will act quickly to return the channel to a normal level of operations.

Ever Given, about 400 meters long and weighing more than 200,000 tons, was stranded in the canal last Tuesday, an event that held in place transactions of about $ 400 million per hour.

The British publication Lloyd’s List estimates that the value of goods passing through the canal every day reaches $ 5.1 billion in the east-west direction and $ 4.5 billion in the opposite direction.

The Suez Canal, completed over 150 years ago, separates Africa from Asia and is one of the busiest trade routes in the world, accounting for 12% of total world trade. Prior to the pandemic, trade in the corridor accounted for 2% of Egypt's gross domestic product (GDP).

Today, Asian stock markets have risen slightly due to the announcement that the corridor is to be unblocked. The Japanese Nikkei index rose 1% despite the fact that the financial group Nomura reported that it could face losses of two billion dollars.

At the same time, the MSCI index for the Asia-Pacific region increased by 1.3%, and China's "blue chip" shares reported an increase of 0.8%.
