Ramon Dekkers, 43, Dutch kickboxer, eight-time Muay Thai world champion.It was his surname that stood out... not a common one, and so it was pretty easy for me to remember that I had mentioned this surname quite awhile back in my Toumai blog, and so I keyed in "Dekker" into to the search box which brought up the following information:

He also gave the pilot a replacement copy of a library book lost on the flight, Just Culture: Balancing Safety and Accountability, by Sidney Dekker. (Dekker... deck-- roof) Now going back to the paper, there is also another ...
If you read my last post you're probably as shocked as I am. Note this excerpt from my previous post
Those who've read my recent posts are aware of a "January 15"pattern-cluster, which is literally that-- January 15 cropping up in materials as a result of having followed the leads that other pattern-clusters brought to the surface. January 15th stands out on the personal level as well, given that my son and partner were born on this day (22 years apart).This is the 8th time that January 15th has cropped up in the last 6 weeks!!
As you can see by the 2010 post excerpt above, I had made a connection with the name "Dekker" and the word "Deck". Note the following etymology:
deck (n.) a nautical word, from ver- "fore" +decken "to cover, put under roof," from Proto-Germanic *thackjam (related to thatch, q.v.).
deck (v.2) "knock down," c.1953,Note the cover of the book (pictured at left) regarding the 2010 post excerpt above re: A Just Culture, by Sidney Dekker, which the Mayor had given the Pilot for his part in miraculously landing the plane on the Hudson River, saving all 155 on board. Now compare the books cover to the poster ad for the film "Young Andersen" (pictured at right), which was included in my previous post.
deck (v.1)"adorn" (as in deck the halls), early 15c., from Middle Dutch dekken "to cover," from the same Germanic root as deck (n.).
The similarity between the two is obvious enough, especially if you've read my posts in the last couple of weeks, butt in case you don't quite get it, note this next excerpt from my previous post, Chris Peters RIIP, Peter Steen RIIP and a Hammers...:
On perusing through the list of movies Steen had acted in, one stood out in particular due to the film's poster ad pictured at right. The picture of a man-- young Andersen, 'peeking' one eye through his fingers as though he's afraid of looking at something that's in front of him. This is very meaningful, especially since the recent death of musician Kevin Peek, noting in particular his last name, and consider the following excerpts from my February 21 post entitled, Kevin Peek and Zelandonii RIIP :On trying to find information about the author of Just Culture, Sidney Dekker, I found a particular interesting article (Here) and excerpt:
- peek: To glance quickly; to look or peer furtively, as from a place of concealment, to be only partially visible, as if peering or emerging from hiding
The book focuses partly on how responses to incidents and accidents, that may be perceived as unjust, can create fear and silence and reduce willingness to report, rather than learning and improving.Another thing worthwhile mentioning, is yet another pattern-cluster happening in the moment concerning the above mention movie ad re: Young Andersen, given that it portrays the life of Hans Christian Andersen and something I had mentioned in passing in my January 2010 post as mentioned above, note the following excerpt:
In a time, when it is more and more common to treat human error as a crime, it is an interesting reading material not just for airline pilots, but for all people in safety-critical work.
In fact, when I think about it, it’s odd that Cath, Gill, Chris, Erin and even our dog Bailey (since passed) were all born in January. I’m the odd one out (born in June)... hmmm, there seems to be a pattern here with this “odd person out”/”ugly duckling” scenario.So note the mention of the "ugly duckling" in the above... Hans Christian Andersen wrote "The Ugly Duckling" (Here):
... a literary fairy tale by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen (1805 – 1875). The story tells of a homely little bird born in a barnyard who suffers abuse from his surroundings until, much to his delight (and to the surprise of others), he matures into a beautiful swan, the most beautiful bird of all. The story is beloved around the world as a tale about personal transformation for the better. “The Ugly Duckling” was first published 11 November 1843Considering that my last post involved many "Peters", I had thought that maybe the "Peter Piper" tongue twister somehow factors in, butt I didn't bother going down that road, butt now, it just dawned on me that the word "deck" rhymes with "peck"... and come to think of it, note how the "d" and "p" are like "mirror images" of each other... complimentary opposites, which is very much in keeping with the inner twin world weirdness, so check it out:
