Add more fuel to the concept that there is a "talent shortage". Companies are just completely unwilling to pay what workers are worth or offer them any training flexibility or even kindness.
Modern employers feel completely entitled to perfect workers for dirt cheap pay and completely unfulfilling work.
Then they whine "labor shortage".
Actually the problem is that people aren't able to compare airlines based on space. You can sort by price, departure time, number of stops, airline, connection time, total time, arrival time, but I've not seen a flight booking site offer filters based on amenities or comfort metrics of any kind.
In the absence of that information, people are going to be making decisions without consideration of those things and so the airlines will race to reduce their costs.
This market failure is not caused by a lack of regulation of seat size, but by a lack of important information. There is apparently a desparate need for a new flight booking service to provide that information.
Yep, the IT group continually sends employees emails telling us how much they don't trust us, THEN the decrypt our SSL sessions and expect our Complete trust in them... no dice, you made it completely clear that No One could be trusted. How does your newfound snooping power change that concept?
Yep, that's always the logic IT security uses when we try to get software approved and they deny it.
Any IT group who implements this is NOT serious about decreasing the attack space, they just want ton spy on employees.

The cost of living in Delhi is, for a one bedroom apartment in the center, 16400 rupees on average which is about 250 USD. The average cost of living in New York is 3900 USD, so that's 15.6 times more expensive. Taking that into account, the converted cost of this mission was 1.15 billion USD, making this a pretty damn expensive mission, especially considering that it had a smaller and less capable spacecraft than US efforts.
And before you tell me that New York is so expensive: so is Delhi if you're an Indian.
This is why so much work has moved over to low wage countries. They're _cheaper_. And it is only a great example of how to run a project if your dream is to have the kind of living conditions that Indians enjoy.

"In the car industry, people ask this question all the time: how fast does the vehicle accelerate?" says Oppenheim. "Just as a computing machine performs a computation, a car can take you to the mall."
No, still doesn't make any sense...
Well, fortunately that is not what integration means, and nowadays most former immigrants from Surinam, Indonesia, and China are considered to be well integrated. You see, this is where the accusation of racism and hatred falls apart: there are large groups of non-white people in the Netherlands who are simply considered to be Dutch, despite having foreign roots. I have friends who have their roots in Indonesia, Lebanon, and Surinam. They celebrate that by serving exotic food once in a while, and for the rest they are as Dutch as I am.
Integration does not mean erasing your ancestry. It does, however, mean choosing your new country over your old. It means joining into its society, rather than staying within your own clan. Making friends with the natives. Learning the language. Raising your kids in the full expectation that they will only ever be citizens of the new country, and nothing else.
It's fine to want to celebrate some festival in honor of your country of origin. It is not ok to demand that festivals celebrated by the natives in your new country are abandoned because they make you feel bad. If you feel that strongly about it, _leave_. It is also not ok to demand that everyone abides by your food rules, your religious sensibilities, or whatever else you bring with you. As the newcomer, it is up to you to adapt. If you cannot do that... Go home.
He wants to forbid dual citizenship. They can stay, but they will have to choose to either be fully Dutch, or fully Turkish - no longer both. In the first case they can act as citizens of the Netherlands (with all rights and duties associated with that). In the second case they will be considered permanent foreign residents. That means they can no longer vote in the national elections, are not eligible for some functions, and if found guilty of a crime, can be deported to their country of origin.
Obviously, Turkey must agree to striking citizenship for those who choose to be Dutch (that means no more service in the Turkish army, among other things). And should Turkey choose to not cooperate - well, that really leaves only one choice then, doesn't it?
As for "reasonable integration plans", we have tried those for the last three generations. What makes you think such a thing can work _at all_? The group is large enough that it can easily form Turkish enclaves where contact with Dutch people is not necessary (so there is no pressure to integrate), and there is considerable financial and religious support from Turkey to retain their original cultural identity. That's kind of a tough fight, isn't it?
