Infobox problem[edit]

I'm not sure if anyone else is having this problem, but the infoboxes at the top of the article are doing bad things. There are multiple solutions for this, but I don't know enough about templates to make appropriate suggestions. superlusertc 2007 August 24, 09:26 (UTC)

Oppenheimer Dynasty End?[edit]

It seems inaccurate to say, "In November 2011, the Oppenheimer family announced its intention to sell the entirety of its 40% stake in De Beers to Anglo American plc thereby increasing Anglo American's ownership of the company to 85%.[39] The transaction was worth £3.2 billion (US$5.1 billion) in cash and ended the Oppenheimer dynasty's 80-year ownership of De Beers." when earlier on the page it says Ernest Oppenheimer founded Anglo American plc! De Beers is still under control of an Oppenheimer-founded business. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.101.8.239 (talk) 04:57, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

No, because no one in the Oppenheimer family wants to continue in the industry. This may not be in the article, but can be seen here. Bataaf van Oranje (Prinsgezinde) (talk) 10:59, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

The meaning of the word "Vooruitzicht".[edit]

The translation of the word "Vooruitzicht, is not "outlook". "Uitzicht" is translated, "Outlook". Vooruitzicht, literally translated, means "Looking to the future". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.36.198.30 (talk) 13:29, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
