Completely ruined

Completely ruined

MAASTRICHT. Holocene, Pleistocene, Palaeocene. All well known, but have you ever heard of Anthropocene? According to Christian Schwägerl, we are in the middle of that right now. The German biologist and journalist claims that there is actually no single place on earth that has not been ‘ruined’ by man. Schwägerl will give a Studium Gene...

“Don’t fall in love with the theory”

MAASTRICHT. Monday morning, 11 January, Tongersestraat 53. Members of staff from the School of Business take their seats in an intimate setting for a lecture by professor Paul De Grauwe (Ukkel, 1946), the international economic authority who will be appointed honorary doctor at Maastricht University this afternoon.

Umami: the fifth taste

Umami: the fifth taste

Waiting for a late train on a wet, foggy afternoon is not a pleasant experience. So I decided to delay my trip and enjoy lunch at Umami, the place I cycle past every day and wonder what is hidden behind those large windows. I was surprised to discover black wooden walls, a light, shiny floor and an arched bamboo bridge on the ceiling supporting num...

Limited opening hours

Limited opening hours

Hilde (20): “I am always there with a listening ear for my roommates and friends. And so they often come to me with their problems. Lately, I have noticed that it is costing me more and more energy.

Every bit of this is true

Every bit of this is true

MAASTRICHT. A lecturer at the School of Business and Economics made his debut on national television just after 2000, in a controversial sex programme, surrounded by beautiful naked women in a bubble bath.

Homemade or not, the Preuverij’s zuurvlees is delicious

Wandering off the beaten track somewhat in the university area of the old town, you might stumble across this tiny Maastricht bar serving traditional local specialties. Eetcafé De Preuverij offers a wide range of dishes, from soups – I would recommend the onion soup with lots and lots of cheese on top – to sate, lasagne, salads, schnit...

Don’t rescue, try to help

Don’t rescue, try to help

Noa (22): “My mother is very dispirited lately. She spends a lot of time lying on the sofa and not taking care of herself or her house. I tidy up regularly, do her shopping and cook for her. She seems to be getting worse. I made an appointment for her with the GP, but she didn’t turn up. What can I do?” Ingrid: Despite the help...

“Suddenly I realised: I belong to a group. I’m a refugee too”

“Suddenly I realised: I belong to a group. I’m a refugee too”

Among the ranks of UM staff are a number of refugees or children of refugees. In this new Observant series, they talk about their lives before and after their flight from their home country, their views on the Netherlands, and their take on the debate about the refugee crisis. This week we kick off with medical doctor Chahinda Ghossein-Doha from Le...
Sooothai so delicious

Sooothai so delicious

The precise balance between sweet and hot elements is key to Thai cuisine. And it’s not an easy tightrope to walk, but when it works, it comes together on the plate gloriously. Sooothai, right opposite the gate of the School of Business and Economics (SBE), manages to get this delicate balance just right. They cook some of the best Thai food ...
