Belgische radio stations – Live stream .m3u

Indien je graag radio zou luisteren via je computer, dan heb je allereerst een muziekspeler nodig. Dat is een stuk software waarmee je muziek kan afspelen en die ook in staat is om radio te streamen.

Belgian e-commerce doubles in 2 years time

E-commerce in Belgium compared to other European countriesDuring the past year, about 43 percent of the Belgian consumers ordered goods or services online. According to figures from the ‘Federale Overheidsdienst Economie‘ (Federal Public Service Economy). Two years ago, e-commerce reached 38 percent of Belgian consumers. The year before, the corresponding figure was only 21 percent. Belgium is an average country compared to other European countries when it comes to e-commerce, but there still remains a significant gap with the neighboring countries, where the penetration of e-commerce is at least 10% higher. The highest score in Europe is recorded in Britain and Sweden, where 71 percent of the population uses e-commerce. The main objections to online purchases remain the persistent questions regarding the security of e-commerce, high delivery costs and long delivery times.

Nog 400 koten beschikbaar in Brussel

Elk jaar opnieuw verloopt het verhuren van de koten in Brussel zeer vlot. Nu, eind juli, zijn nog slechts 10% of 400 koten beschikbaar. Een kot in Brussel is dus gegeerd, kan men stellen.

Elk jaar stijgt de vraag naar studentenkamers in onze prachtige hoofdstad. Op zich uiteraard een goede evolutie, maar door de stijgende vraag en het klein aantal beschikbare studentenkoten zijn de koten gemiddeld een pak duurder dan de koten in de Vlaamse studentensteden zoals Gent of Antwerpen.

De studenten lieten duidelijk verstaan dat er nood is aan meer koten die betaalbaar en kwaliteitsvol zijn. Een student moet het vaak stellen met een beperkt budget en het huren van een kot is financieel niet haalbaar voor velen door de hoge prijzen.
