De wereld kantelt, en Almere kantelt mee

Afgelopen week werd met veel bombarie het nieuwste boek ‘Weerwater’ van Renate Dorrestein in onze Stadsschouwburg gepresenteerd. Het boek is nu al een bestseller. Almere blijkt in het verhaal als enige stad in de wereld over te blijven na het vergaan van de wereld. Een tipje van de sluier, de overlevenden zijn voornamelijk Almeerse vrouwen en een paar mannelijke gevangenen uit de penitentiaire inrichting ‘Almere Binnen’. Hoe bizar kan een verhaal beginnen. Ik ga niet verklappen hoe het verhaal loopt. Dan koop je maar het boek bij Stumpel of Bruna. In ieder geval is dit boek een aangename aanvulling op ‘De Weerwatermannen’ van Suske en Wiske.

Renate was twee jaar lang onze ‘writer in residence’ en mocht bij diverse mensen thuis wonen om een goede indruk van de stad te krijgen. Haar vooringenomen mening over Almere is flink gekanteld na diverse ontmoetingen met bewoners. Onze stad is dan ook een heel andere genre. Buitenstaanders kijken voornamelijk naar de gebreken van onze stad. Het gebrek aan oude (grachten)panden, gevestigde cultuur en het aandeel creatieven. Daarmee gaat hij voorbij aan de kwaliteiten van onze onvergelijkbare stad. Een stad met een hoge kwaliteit van groen, water, veel woning voor minder geld.

Net als in het verhaal van Renate slaagt Almere er juist al jaren in om het anders te doen. Vanuit een totaal ander idee is een stad neergezet die zich continu zal vernieuwen omdat hier de ruimte voor is. Op basis van een spraakmakend polycentraal ontwerp. Met in elke stadsdeel gezondheidcentra’s, uitgaanscentra. Een stad met gescheiden busbanen en een hart van architectonisch topniveau. Nieuwe stadsmonumenten. De slogan van Apple ‘Think Different’ is eigenlijk ook een eerbetoon aan de lef van de Almeerse ontwerpers en de pioniersgeest van de huidige bevolking. In de blauwe oceaan van Almere is geen concurrentie met andere steden. Want Almere kent geen concurrenten. Almere is een onontgonnen gebied, op veel terreinen, waar alles nog mogelijk is.

Onafhankelijkheid, is dat niet wat iedereen tegenwoordig wil. Almere blijkt al lang een vrijstaat in Nederland. Gemeente, bewoners en instellingen hebben de stad in zeer korte tijd gebouwd. Een mirakel volgens vele buitenlanders. En het verhaal gaat verder met de Floriade straks, in 2022. Almere heeft gekeken naar het succes van Apple, van Cirque du soleil, van Viagra. Out of the box. Want de bokaal waarin de oude steden zich bevinden, daar past de Almeerse burger niet in.


-----------

Omroep Almere Heeft de wens uitgesproken dat een aantal columnisten hun meningen geven over over onze almeerse samenleving. Wij zijn ook zeer erkentelijk dat de "Kanteldenker" van Almere zich hier aan verbonden heeft.

She knew exactly Cheap True Religion Jeans how long a tailor or a wine Nike Air Huarache For Sale merchant Uggs For Cheap would wait for nike schuhe günstig his money without acerbation Moncler Outlet Store of temper, official NHL jerseys and would seize that crowning moment to Adidas Yeezy Cheap have zapatilla adidas him paid by hook nfl store or by crook.

Grand final return thefocus for Hawks coach

AS the dust settles on Perth's grand final sweep of Illawarra, the message coming out of the Hawks camp michael kors taschen is that Sunday's defeat is the beginning and not the end.

There's no doubt being on the wrong end of a 3 0 sweep won't look michael kors handbags australia good in the history books, or give a fair indication of how competitive the polo ralph lauren australia series was, but coach Rob Beveridge remains positive about the future. In fact, when the disappointment of a grand final defeat subsides, the 2016 17 season is arguably Beveridge's finest achievement as a coach.

To very unexpectedly lose the reigning MVP Kevin Lisch would have been a big enough blow, but for an all time great in Kirk Penney to follow him out the door would have seen most clubs slip dramatically. It's what most preseason experts predicted so, to not only reach the playoffs in consecutive seasons, but go one better is a remarkable achievement.

"In our first two seasons we've gone to the playoffs and now to the grand final so I know we're headed ralph lauren australia in the right direction," Beveridge said following Sunday's loss.

"It's amazing what this club has done. To lose Lisch and Penney was a pretty big hit and we were tipped Michael Kors Tassen to come second last. Everybody wrote us off. It's amazing the amount of experts who are out there.

"Nobody rates us, nobody respects us and that there fuels the fire for us as an organisation to continue to get better. You can't demand respect you have to earn it and I think we've done that.

"The [lack of] resources we have compared to other teams it's just ridiculous, so for our guys to firstly make the playoffs and then beat the number one team at the time, Adelaide, in game three on the road to give ourselves a chance [at a championship] was just michael kors väska an incredible effort.

"It's obviously very disappointing we couldn't get it done but I'm exceptionally proud of our players."

There's irony in michael kors portemonnaie the fact that Beveridge's third grand final defeat came at the hands of a team he largely put together but it's what leaves him confident that he has the blueprint to deliver a long awaited second NBL title to the Illawarra faithful.

While imports Marvelle Harris and Michael Holyfield may well move on, Rotnei Clarke is strongly tipped to stay while veterans Oscar Forman and Tim Coenraad have also expressed a desire to stay with the club if offered new deals.

The rest of the roster is already under contract, leaving Beveridge confident he has the nucleus of a title wining team.

"We'll continue to get Michael Kors Handtaschen Outlet better and my vision for our club is to win a championship," Beveridge said.

"All those years ago when I came to bolsos michael kors outlet Perth it was about rebuilding the club, identifying the best young talent and recruiting those players. The resources are at a completely different level which makes it a lot harder but the same model I had in Perth I want in Wollongong.

"You always go and evaluate your program at the end of the season and no team ever stays the same but but the majority of our players are under contract so we won't be making too many tweaks. We'll review, evaluate and we'll put a pretty good team on the floor next season as well."
