Anthony Davis Has Room to Grow

"GonNa Focus on the Lakers, which as an editor is near and dear to my heart because sharks picked the biggest red meat team on on on the table here. But they've been really impressive with us are there to one and Anthony Davis looks like probably the best player in the bubble thus far chunks. Why don't you leaders us through some of the things that have been happening with Lakers why think for the record this is called the impossibly good-looking persons corner just clarify. For. Their how dare sir? Okay so we're looking at the Lakers thing to me that's jumped out in the first three games is how they're playing when Anthony Davis playing without Lebron on. So that was been their biggest problem. All season is those non Lebron ad minutes because he idea was. Okay. If you have a D- then Lebron can rest he can get. His breaking it as time off, and they'll still be fine. But before the restart when eighty was out of the Ron, he was minus three and five, hundred, six, hundred minutes as those are important minutes Lakers have to win in the restart I mean obviously is a very small sample size but who cares where we're doing podcasts in the restart their plus night. Eighties playing without Lebron. That's just a massive flip on their whole situation and to me watching those minutes was set out to me I think number one. Not Having region Rondo. I think that really kind of low key killed their team because when rondos playing he has to have the ball right like Rondo can't play off the ball Swiss hole in the ball he's not really a threat to score someone's really guarding him and then on defense that giving you much either so like Alex the numbers when ad and Rondo without Lebron it was minus five and without Rondo they're playing Caruso and waiters with a d the floor is spread and the thing. Anthony. Davis. You don't need a traditional point guard Anthony, Davis give eighty the ball in the mid postals kill people right? He gets the ball then it kicks shooter instead of the Rondo. So it's like ADP without Rondo back great and the other thing too is eighty at the five. So they're going eighty Kuzma than like Greener Casey Caruso waiters whatever. Eighty s numbers at the five the year are insane. They're absolutely ridiculous. So cab. Looking at that with no Devellano Dwight Eighty has a usage of twenty eight shooting of Sixty six point six. Now base that means in English as eighties in the ball, like he's hardener Jaanus and he's been the most efficient player in the league. So if looking at those two numbers, there's only been one player in NBA history that had to be that efficient at that. High usage not staff like five years ago. So basically, when eighties at the five, he does a established about shooting threes he's basically scoring at will every single time I think long story short eighty more room to grow I. Think we're seeing that right now like leading a d. plan space given him the ball he's got levels still the go to get into them right now. Yeah I. So the biggest thing off of that, which was great I just wonder if their margin for error is too thin right now obviously the Lakers have been incredible. So let's get that caveat out of the way I think probably favorite if not among the favorites for the title. People like to remind us on the group Chat specifically Chris Because I don't think sharks was. One I remember that yeah. Where we pretty much we troll the Lakers after their first loss of the season and. Venture like the succeed but clearly, they've they've far exceeded those expectations. Great. Please don't ask me. But I do wonder as bad as Rondo has been at times. As much as Bradley is the fifth most important guy on that starting lineup at times I do wonder if the margin for error is a little bit more thin and you are relying on the cruise of the world on the Casey Visa, the world more than you would like to my wrong rob now I mean I'm I'm pretty compelled by this whole situation that sharks laid out like the idea of shifting some of those pieces around and unlocking ad in a different way like makes logical sense to me given his skill set this is. The Guy, who can you know Kevin O'Connor talked in in the restart this week about how? Bam. Out of Bio Converts Defenses Ad in the mid post has a similar effect where if you clear out, you give him space and a straight line drive past almost any big in the league like that's such a powerful thing that there should be a way to orient pieces around that. Make Sense I. Think I get skeptical is in that margin for error and it's in, you know if you look at kind of the core of these lineups. AD and CAL Kuzma, and Alice Caruso or kind of the three man anchor of it and in around that, there's a revolving door of guards. You got some Danny Green minutes you get some dion waiters minutes he gets JR Smith gets in Casey ep you got whoever they cobbled together in that minute in the rotation at those guys scare the hell out of me a little bit and I think you know when you flashback to eighty as a Pelican and where he was some of where they fell apart without drew. Holiday on the floor without kind of more traditional point guards on the floor which just not having competent entry passers not having guys who could get a d. the ball in positions to score, which is it seems like such an easy thing. But the thing I don't trust dion waiters to do but it is a thing. Maybe I do trust Danny Green to do it. You know like some of these more professional veteran level guys like that distinction I think is an important one and probably the difference between bubble seating. Games bubble playoff games, right where you're getting Jr's and the demons at least lower in the pecking order if not out of the rotation on a regular basis entirely, and then you're looking at these minutes where it's you know, Danny Green Casey P. and those guys and cannot work I. Think I. Think there's a chance that it does but I do get a little bit suspect just in the sense that once playoff defenses are really keying in on what this lineup look like and how it works what does that? Mean deep because you know Jaanus has had that scrutiny in terms of a big who handles the ball who's creating for space lineups like we know what that looks like in defense is know what that looks like defensive kind of just been dealing with these Lakers lineups without Lebron floor all year haven't had a lot of trouble with them, but they haven't hammered them either in terms of the the mechanics of how they work. If this starts working, then you invite that level of

Locked Down in Switzerland and Belgium

"Start with Stephen mcfeely he operates being be on Ireland's dingle peninsula in just before the pandemic head Stephen an interest in the hotel Oberland in October and Switzerland that's where he's had to ride out the first few months of the global lockdown good and. My goodness. My Irish friend is learning Spitzer dykes. Good here in the Alps where I've been for four months. Now in splendid isolation, my plan originally was just to come for February and March, but I've I'm still here right well, what does the vibe in Switzerland right now there's a positive vibe. The society is reopening. Tourism travel has started again just no we're on the same level as it was before we had two weekends where there was crazy crowds here huge big crowds from all over Switzerland everybody who was here was from Switzerland or had to be from Switzerland. They weren't necessarily all Swiss because there's lots of international people living in Geneva and Derek and whatnot but everybody from within the barger of Switzerland over with crowds, and then it just died and Monday to. Friday went back to being really really quiet. Okay. Well, this is sort of the very beginnings of the rekindling of tourism I would imagine it'll be people traveling with within their own countries first, and then traveling within Europe, and then finally international travel and transatlantic travel. Yes. That's exactly what we're seeing. The borders here have just reopened. So we're expecting Germans and some Austrians and maybe some French to come now also, I don't anticipate huge numbers like that would have been heretofore. One. Very noticeable thing in the Valley of course, there's no American visitors. As you know, the valley also is very popular with. Chinese travelers Indians many people from Dubai and Saudi Arabia would come here and they're not here this year. So there's a noticeable difference there. So the people getting the real cultural change would be the French speaking. Swiss. German speaking part of his Switzerland and not even leaving their own country exactly. Fifty percent of our guests. Last week were French speaking Swiss and it was the first time I've ever actually met those people and I would say to them. Are you French Swiss would say no, no, we are. All MOM and so I I learned something new immediately the K. The identify as swirl. They were saying exactly what you just said they said it's like we are in a different country it's very dramatic here it's different toossion either those on the do shut down it was really cool. They were very excited to see a different part of their own country. So that was wonderful. Now Stephen you own a hotel in Ireland in Dingle Peninsula and now you own a hotel in Switzerland in Loudoun valley two of my favorite places as a businessman working in both these countries how do you compare the support getting from the government and how the two governments are dealing with this crisis? Well, the difference is. Very. Big. I'm still on team. Ireland. So I want to be positive about my own country, but there's not a lot of support coming. Heretofore in Switzerland for example, within two weeks of the crisis occurring. The. Swiss Federal Council which is the Swiss government offered ten percent of the previous year's turnover and So that's quite a considerable amount of money and they offered that as a loan which was repayable over seven years. Zero percent interest. So they're not looking to profit from it and in Ireland we really struggled to get some assistance. And we got ten thousand euros of overdraft line of credit and but repayable at seven and a half percent interest in Switzerland. We got three hundred thousand. So it's quite a big difference there no-interest at all. No interest at all. Of course, Switzerland may have much stronger and deeper reservists than Ireland, but they were able to immediately come up with assistance very little bureaucracy paperwork, and they immediately got to help us in Ireland. The experience was just simply much different to the government really weren't as proactive for as immediate as were here in Switzerland. The roots here what's around her a lot less strict as well There is a two meter rule here, but I haven't seen anybody wearing masks very much, which is kinda shocking for me because I know in Ireland the whole north of is people should be wearing masks. People definitely are observing social distance. One of my friends said to me that the two meter rule has actually brought Swiss people closer together so. That is so insightful to the Swiss society. It's more difficult thing. It's more difficult thing for Irish people or Italian people are Spanish. Two meters distance than it would be for this people or maybe the. Scandinavians. I can see by home people are wondering. Is the Irish pub culture ever going to come back the way it was with social distancing whereas in. Switzerland. Here for me like I'm I'm in the Alps I'm surrounded by fresh air and. Of of lovely space and it's been a wonderful place to be stranded, I don't even want to complain about it because although I I was stranded here for four months. It was the perfect place I felt very safe. I might have felt different if I was in the middle of Zurich or something or Geneva but I felt very safe. I'd in the Alps and it is lovely and peaceful and quiet, and of course, that's what people are coming here for anyway

"Lumpy dirty potato spread slowly through Europe being brought back from South America to Spain in fifteen seventy. The Swiss believed that potato consumption would lead to infection of the lymph nodes. The Burgundy. Region of France outlawed their cultivation altogether. Some thought that spuds would cause sterility while others thought that they caused rampant sexuality. We Have Antoine Augustin Parmentier to thank for our fries, Mash and hashbrowns.

Changing public opinion was an uphill battle, however, even serving potatoes to the KINK who suffered no ill effects wasn't enough. Permit years genius stroke was to make. People think they weren't allowed to have potatoes. He had his land filled with potato plots and hired guards to protect it. Guards who were instructed to turn a blind eye to all theft and accept any and all bribes so that the public would steal the potatoes and grow them on their own land. After a time Parmentier dismissed the. And as he expected, the locals raided the land and stole almost every potato plant growing there. By the following year, nearly every farmer in the region was growing their own potatoes. The potatoes, geographical and botanical cousin. The tomato fared better initially. Spain Portugal and Italy welcomed it with open mouths, the rest of Europe not as much. Tomatoes were blamed for health problems in in the upper-class people who were willing to eat them. The wealthy eight from pewter plates, a metal, high and let. The acid from the tomatoes would lead the lead from the plates, resulting in sometimes fatal lead poisoning. Even the American colonies of the seventeen hundreds view tomatoes as a curious ornamental plant. Making matters worse the Tomato Horn. Warm a conspicuously ugly three or four inch, long green worm with a Red Horn on its rear that can ruin tomato crops was considered to be independently business, and as dangerous as a rattlesnake.

At the courthouse steps, he spoke to the crowd. To help dispel the toll tales and fantastic fables that you've been hearing and to prove to you that it is not poisonous I am going to eat one right now. There was not a sound as he dramatically brought the tomato to his lips and took a bite. A woman in the crowd screamed and fainted, but no one paid her any attention. They were all watching Johnson as he took one bite. After another, he raised both arms. The crowd cheered, and the firemen's band blared song. He's done it. They shouted. He's alive.

Here's what a weakening U.S. dollar means for stocks

"With with with with with with Sully Sully Sully Sully Sully Sully and and and and and and ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, falling falling falling falling falling falling Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar dollars. Looking pretty shaky on DH. That sounds horrible, right? A weaker dollar. Well, it's not actually that bad. If you think about a currency meltdown, a weaker dollar is actually positive for US stocks, but foreign stocks will probably benefit more. There is what's called the Ice US Dollar Index, and that's a measure of the currency against six other Ranger currencies, which are the euro. I think it's the yen. The British pound Killian dollars. Swedish krona Swiss Frank I'm pretty sure that's it Anyway. Way we have fallen to a 22 month low Lord below $94.47 94. 40. Now that means basically our dollars were forced sense. sense. Those Those other other currencies, currencies, and and that that comes comes after after hitting hitting more more than than the the three three year year high high on on March March 22nd 22nd or or we we were were worth worth a a buck buck three three against against all all of of those those so so sort sort of of knowing knowing exactly exactly what what to to make make of of the the dollars dollars Pretty Pretty confusing. confusing. AA AA weaker weaker dollars dollars typically typically seen seen by by the the way way is is a a positive positive for for the the US US economy economy because because weakening weakening dollar dollar means means that that imports imports become become are expensive, but it means that exports are more active consumers. Of course, consumer spending drives are all spending drives GDP, and that's why we sort of like a bee. A strengthening dollar dollar is bad for exports. Ah, but good for imports. So bottom line stocks have done just fine. During the recent dollar bull markets, which have reflected the strength the US economy, But a weaker dollar is not necessarily good for stock. If it reflects some bigger problems, and the bigger problems are, of course, we're in a repression here, So a T end of the day you have three years confuses you were before I started talking about falling taller, but but I will tell you it's not such a bad thing for stocks, and there's evidence why what's going on this morning? Dodgers. NASDAQ SNPL LOOKING CREATE NASDAQ 10,000 For 97 That's 1.2% looking great SPF 30 to 30. The Dow Jones 26 5 50 coming up at 7 20 this week, were to learn the size of the hole. That the U.

Wow So. That's because see. The thing is about Colusa. It's usually super calorie dense like leakers like the very very sweet, and so the fact that this says eighty calories a can you know I feel like I would try this and I would make some kind of fun recipes out of it so I'm excited to check that out. Put a little whip on top I. think it'll be good two hundred in a blender with some ice. From the recipe creations I smell a facebook live. Okay, so before we jump in. I do want to say that we haven't yet another fantastic sponsor for this week's episode, you guys. Are you excited about the sponsor, very? I know I am it's our old pals at enlightened first of all enlightened? Sorry, they make the best ice cream and frozen products in the Biz in addition to their incredibly delicious badeah being bought a boom snacking broad beans, which are to die for but today we are specifically talking about a new frozen product. They have you know. Enlightened started out with novelties. They had those ice cream bars originally before they got into pints and all the other great stuff that they do, but they have a new bar called enlightened fruit infusions that are low in sugar there, especially popular with the Kito audience because they're totally Kito, friendly, right? Very low in sugar, sixty ninety calories, hardly any fat. Three to seven grams of fiber, three to five grams of sugars and total, which is pretty incredible for a fruit bar, and they're real fruit frozen pops. They literally have seventy to eighty percent less sugar than most of the competition, and they are not made with any artificial sweeteners. I love these bars. They were nice enough to send them to me like during the pandemic freezer, they're really refreshing. Their infused with natural herbs and other feel good ingredients, but all you really taste. Is that fruity deliciousness now I love the flavors that they have with these because think about how cute and fund these are coconut plus immunity immunity. With elements like elderberry and high biscuits that support a healthy immune system have strawberry and chill. With like calming ingredients like Lavender Camomile and more. And like usually that stuff feels a little like I, don't know. Earthy crunchy a little bit out there to me, but I'm just telling you. The strawberry is my favorite flavor, the watermelon soothe. Has Tim. Rick and other anti inflammatory ingredients, and they have a pineapple and renew flavor with digestive benefits from Dandelions, root, Ginger, root, and more so have you tried these bars I have and I'm like blown away that you get all those benefits and it's just a delicious fruit bar. I was Kinda hoping that maybe you'd want to. Make it a little run down the hill and drop it off at our house. Maybe I should have done that I. I don't know what's left. There might just be sticks left like an ice cream truck. Will you like play some music while you pull up to our house amount, enlighten fruit infusions. Sure, but if by any chance you miss the ice cream, hungry girl as she drives by Your House, you can get these at whole foods. All right we might do that and. Everyone else could do that. We were definitely doing home for whole foods home delivery, so we'll definitely do that for sure. Okay. Well good work from the enlightened people. We Love Them I love everything they put out. This is just a new thing for them. And I say Kudos to them because they have really been doing so well with other Kito friendly products. Okay well onto the hall I am so excited. I have. Have to say we're going to jump in and start tasting. Some of the stuff that I found a trader Joe's. I'm not saying all of this is new, but I have to say it is all new to me so and that's what doesn't matter. Yeah, it doesn't and sometimes you know it's good to to pick up some foods that you hope will be around forever. Because Trader Joe's is known for like having all these. Products, and hopefully some of these will stick around for the long haul, but we are starting off with some savoury items. We've got an exciting egg for todd with Swiss cheese and cauliflower so I. I saw these in the freezer section. I know Aaron who works with US swears by these. She said Lisa. You need to try this. You put it in a flat bread. You make a rap out of it I think they're super cute and you. You can do a lot with them. It says the serving as to for Tatas, but I feel like you only need one especially. If you're creative with it, they have one hundred and thirty five calories, each seven and a half grams of fat twelve and a half grams of protein and their little egg pucks. They're cute.

"Talk me through like some of the acquisition process because there's. I mean could be right in saying that there's probably like twenty acquisitions, and all of as sports history of a business that's more than say five thousand dollars for a t three sports team like an acquisition, and that number's Rod, or not I think the point trying to make. Is this billionaire acquisitions ever in a sports at the moment unless it's a team that say optic which is? is like a distressed asset or something like that? Mommy and there's a couple of there's a couple of also peripherals depending on what you what you consider east boards, and you know where we draw the line between gaming. I mean there's been there's been some. There's been some some proper requisitions to like to me. That was different because we're you know. We built us a startup. Everything. Yoho edge all you are right when you got to react to a fast paced market, lucky sports, and then all of a sudden your. You're dipping your toes into the corporate world. Again, And then you get like the all the requirements that kind of all read wants from you, and then all of a sudden you you get you get into this wheel of okay cool. We gotta do this. We gotTA THAT IT'S A. Different so I think so, the story is we got investment a year before same company, and then got acquired later, and the the big due-diligence was before prior to the investment and I think like I think that blocked me for probably two or three months completely, so you know I had a team that was taking care of things but I was really like I was really working on this on all the numbers compiling data sets, and you have that stuff left and right, but then you got to put in the right form. You know it's all these talks. That was a time you know. Before we went live, you know we talked about lifestyle getting healthy again and losing all the kilos. On. It was really with a lot of what a lot of stress in a positive way, too, but it's just. Fun You know. It's I looking back now I'd say it was a really good experience. Like at the time it's hard when you've got to act fast, and you got to work on your company, but then also your completely blocked in the process, my soul. Really in a really interesting like number video information that someone gave me today. WHO's well versed in traditional businesses? We're just talking about public. Elucidate sports companies in the industry AALIYAH. They have to release the financial reports by the thirty fester. July some extremely interested to see what comes out from those guys and anyone. I've essays and you know what he was saying. He's it costs about. About a million nosy year in day to public illicit business, and it really is because you need all of these. In when the I six says proved to us why your stock just went up by forty percent. It's been a lot time going through that. You need to prove that you haven't done something illegal. You need to use your extending entitled Potties to justify that stock price into. Your releases and to check through the bold reports, and that kind of stuff takes a lot of time and none of its shape. Recent prices? Everybody seems to be three hundred dollars an hour, so it takes a Lotta time. The and that's why I feel like. If you look at these sports industry right now I'm not saying it's not saying it's not mature, but it's a lot of startups. It's a lot of people just getting in doing things like doing things quickly and you. If you grow that like if that mature Swiss, certain point, you know you have a, you have a time where there's different skills that you need, and we just have different requirements. Right I mean if a company grows like your co changes like you know you need. You need different skills to complement. Would you can't do anymore? Because of time, constraints as well so yeah, it's. It's a very different thing. Yeah, that makes sense to me. Is like a really wish on. You wear a hood this from, but it's a good. Saying that say all the time which is like. The founder doesn't always make the best see. I think that's extremely important like it. You know direct example. I think is a good friend and a mentor CAL flurries from Unicorn. Who's the CO founder and the Chief Product Officer? It makes much more sense. I think the Rahul debate to say call isn't like doing public talks and I call isn't like being divisive the company and every time I talked to him.

"Welcome to the Black Gardeners podcast. I'm your host riot and I'm so excited because I have a special guest today, and all the way I know how to introduce her is that she's out here tracking like her nickname star. Also. I just need to put it out here that I know you can't spit like her and if you heard that laugh in the background I'm talking about actress. Lyricist Mirim Hyman and I'm so excited. She's here also. You might know her by the Moniker Robinhood we're going to get into that. But Mirim how you doing? How you feeling? Man You know just just pushing it day by day. Are you doing with all the stay at home? And all this other craziness? We got going on Oh man I'm just trying to stay productive in proactive to be honest so I've been trying to just make the most of my time you know. Yeah which are very versatile I. Just I think that is huge especially in the time period that we're in in the first thing I want to talk about. Is the lyricist artist in you, so tell me where Robin Hood came from like. How did you get into music? Wow, you know is so crazy! I actually started writing. In two thousand thirteen once I had killed. Yeah. I came graduate school I went to Yale to get my masters acting and so basically when I came of Graduate School I had a lot of time on my hands. however I was working on a show called Richard the second excuse me Richard to third at the Public And? Basically you know if you're not familiar with the public as off Broadway theatre in New York and I was cast in the show, and I just had a lot of time on my hands, and so I started to download like a lot of. Really popular industry instrumentals, and so there's a lot of artists out there that I just really appreciate and respect, so you know I was downloading like beats that Swiss beats had done for like jd kiss and whole and be here because I had this time on my hands, and I was working on a Shakespeare show. It was like I don't know. The bar turned into bars like I just. Started writing one line were turned into two lines, and then that would turn into verse and then basically. I just started writing like my first mix tape, which was journey of an MC, and that's really how Robin Hood was birth, you know I would back and forth trying to figure out like the right name, and what would make the most sense you know to my community, but really for myself. I just wanted something that represented who I am and who? I'm really focused on trying to be. How I'm trying to uplift my community, so that's really kind of came from and I had to change the I two a y. you know funded up a little bit. Yep. That's right and I. I grew up in Philadelphia so I. I grew up in the hood. You know so. My thing has always been like taking the poverty going from poverty to prestige. Growing up in Philadelphia in some of the roughest areas, just being an impoverished community, and then being able to go all the way to an Ivy League institution, so. I learned a lot. In that timeframe you know, and so I just wanted to bring that to the music in India better. To uplift inspire, so you know that's where we are. Well, you know. You definitely did not to draw any comparisons to you guys, but one of my one of my favorite artists is eve. And say. Right and I liked the way and see what I liked about your music to of because go you know filling ham villa some of these days I, like I'm pumping yours now on apple music by the way you guys can get on Apple Music and soundcloud and we'll talk about different projects in a minute. But the RAW news that you having your lyrics just to be exposed to me I find your unique about hip hop in artists like yourself that are not afraid to go there listen. Trying to keep my heart, yeah! I was just very very daring at. You're willing to do that. Yeah I mean like in my my most recent. EP which is called Truth Teller I have a song called hip hop is honest, and if you listen to the hood, that will yeah, yeah, so the hook is hip. Hop is honest. Speak, the truth detects never need invalidate the bar. Say Next so basically. You know just a little bit. But that that it's really about being honest, and I had this thing that I say which is, keep it hot and is that means honest, open truthful. And so those are just little principles that you can take into your relationship, you know if you have a significant other or just your relationships with family friends you with yourself is just being honest and open and truthful about how we go about our day and for me, because music is such a huge part of it, it's like how can I not keep it real with my bars? You know I had to keep it real with everything else. You know like what the acting. If you see a scene that I'm in or film that I'm in, and it's not honest. You know off the bed. You know so. Yeah, that's true.

"Matthew Chapter Eighteen versus twenty. One and twenty two. Then Peter came up and said to Jesus Lord How often when my brother sin against me and I forgive him. As many as seven times. Jesus said to him I just said you seven times, but seventy seven times. In other words. Over and over and over again. Just as and he goes on to tell Miss parable of an unforgiving servant. Forgive others Jesus Says Justice My heavenly father forgives you. Thank invite us just to think about that. How does God forgive us? How many times. Does God. Forgive us. How. Patient is God. With us. How loving is he taught us. How often do we? Fall Short of his righteousness in his glory. How often do we send in? He is faithful to forgive. And she's saying. You forgive one another like that. God help us, we pray. God we praise you with praise you for your forgiveness of us. Jesus. Thank you for dying on the Cross to make this possible. For is such. Overwhelmed right now by the reality that I am everyone who's praying right now. Just put our faith in Jesus that we stand before you the holy God, the universe totally forgiven a all our sins. As if we have never done anything wrong ever ever ever. And not just. Forgiving a sense, but Swiss stand for your God, the very righteousness of Jesus as if we have done everything, right. We. We don't deserve this grace. We don't deserve this mercy this position this privileged before you all glory be to your name for your grace in our lives. At, so we prayed here. Help us to show this cat him grace in others lives. In our relationships in. Our homes. And our families in our. Churches. In the world, nor does as. People wrong as people tend us his. People San. People wrong us as people hurt. US people say or do this or that brings a fence to us even as we read earlier in Matthew Chapter. Eighteen Verse Fifteen. If your brother sins against you God, help us to go to him. Go to her. Just like you teach us to do here in Matthew Eighteen and to go with a desire to forgive US spirit of forgiveness, the same kind of desire spirit there we see in you, God help us to reflect your love in this way. We pray that you would uncover. Any unforgiveness! Any bitterness that has a place in our minds, and our hearts are relationships right now, and you would remove it. And by the power of the Gospel. You would help us to forgive others as we have been forgiven. By you. May Be, so we pray in Jesus name. Amen.

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

"Want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland. Which is you know punches. Well above its weight when it comes to global headquarters for I say European headquarters for many of these TECH COMPANIES. The facebooks and people like that that is also

Black Explorers

"On the list of history's great explorers too often, the names of black men and women have gone missing. Yet weather, striking out on their own or accompanying others. Black explorers and left their mark on land and sea. In even in space. In Fifteen, twenty eight. And African named Esteban was brought to Florida as a slave by Spanish conquistadors. When their expedition fail. The survivors explored the American southwest on foot for almost a decade. Esteban travel well over fifteen thousand miles. He saw Moore of the continent than almost any other people before. Listen incompetent. About four centuries later. Another African American explore. Would be one of the first Westerners to reach the far end of planet earth. Matthew Henson spent most of his adolescence at sea learning how to be a sailor. He was also quite interested in exploration, and found himself connected to Admiral Perry. Who is interested in finding North Pole? Hinson travels with him and they've made to the North Pole. Hinson had incredible skills and was recognized for those skills far later than Perry was. In the twentieth century black. Pioneers boldly explored even more daunting frontiers. In the nineteen eighties, the space program was very popular with the American people, and it became clear that there were no African Americans in the astronaut corps, so there was a push to recruit African Americans and in Nineteen, ninety-three guy in blue for became the first. African American to go into space. The second was Ronald McNair. Flew as a mission specialist in nineteen eighty-four. McNair even played his saxophone onboard. Sadly He died tragically two years later when the Challenger exploded shortly after takeoff. In Nineteen ninety-two another African American astronaut made history. It'll be making her first trip in space today and she's ready to fly. Mae Jemison spent more than a week orbiting Earth becoming the first African American woman in space. The Astronaut Corps something that Swiss considered quite a leap. These three African Americans were accomplished scientists and engineers they had passed through quite a rigorous set of assessments to become the first of their race to go into a place where your skills your intelligence, your courage and your commitment were all that mattered not erase. Contrary to what most of US learned in school? Not all great explorers were white men. These bowl pioneers were only a few of the African. Americans who overcame unimaginable odds and push forward. The boundaries of what is possible for black people.

It's like a bit of like a parity but it's funny because it's slightly true probably. The question is sue. How much parody. How much documentary and it's interest- interesting because already quite old and it's still very interesting to watch. I watched recently and it's really good. I could actually recommend. Yeah and the good thing is it's in Swiss German but with English subtitles. Yes and we rented it. I can't remember. Was it Amazon or Barnes. Oh yeah on I tunes.

I thought we could talk about shallow sharply. Translate the bell the bell. It's about a little boy could Lee and Lee is the do they call him earthly? Yeah but his name is more. Yeah that's why he is sleep exactly and has one of those big bells that people. He has only all bill. The thing is it's I looked it up beforehand because I didn't know but everyone I think everyone in Switzerland not everyone but most of the families have this book at home and they read it to their children so it's a very traditional book as well and it's already published in nineteen forty-five so it's very old world. You can still buy in the bookshops where we are now. It's obviously fresh in new nice pictures. And so so. And it's from the lunt eastern part in Switzerland Graubunden. Yeah and it's about this tradition day after in the spring to ring the bells to get the winter out.

That's why it's hard to pick one musician or one song but at the moment on. Sf three the public radio. Yes they have lots of Swiss music. They play also to support Swiss Musici- musicians that contact concerts at the moment.

Everyone knows that this older than fifteen or twenty is Dj Popo Ej. Bubble is real. Name is Rona really yes. Dj Bobo names. He gave himself to name.

"This is Swiss chips you'll British guy to Switzerland some shit I'm Simone and today we're talking about hiking because it is a favourite national pastime of the Swiss Yup it's awesome anymore so it's not too hot and it's not winter so you can't go skiing and terraced this in between time and very often the weather is great in between so people oh hiking yeah it's kind of that perfect time to get outdoors and go for a kind of lorgues wash roaming tonight we're just talking about hiking tell you how to prepare we're going to tell you what the signs mean and we're GONNA onset very important question can I hike up a mountain exactly about first of all we want apologize and that's because we are making this podcast few days later than we normally do try and see a regular you try we were bragging at the beginning that we do it every other week and you will find that every other week in your inbox but this really workout but we try to stick with it and it didn't work out because we will up a mountain last week I should've been making the cost we have planned it very well Dan we were quite tired coming home so what you hear all about it right now exactly so if you talking about heading out on a hike there are a few things should deep beforehand to prepare muscle you should look up of route yes otherwise who is stupid it would be no could just be out and about and then see a sign and be like hey I'm going to go on a hike probably better if you planet before I mean maybe we should differentiate between a short walk the actual hike short walk yes you can walk into town for example but then a hike is more like a longer walk really a plan excursion exactly I'm probably outside of town on a path yeah exactly and you want to have a look beforehand because so want to look what you can expect said Nice views unsown exactly and I think one of the most useful things when you're planning your hike is will pay some links weakened find suggestions hikes online for example but I think you don't just want to look at the length of time it's going to take you know you might and say Okay one off hours I can do that four hours that sounds perfect but also the height difference is a big factor because that really makes a difference between a an easy walker the difficult one yes there is basically the height difference you look at the time how long it takes and we're from where to where because usually from to and not really circle walk so you want to may be go is it is a close to a train or a bus station and yet then the main and most important thing is basically how is how difficult is the walk exactly yeah and I think after you've been a few times You know unlike an easy Waquar media more than you start to get a feel for exactly easy or medium means then no way around yes and there is a like most famous Swiss walking hiking maps we will link them them our show notes it's from the ultimate from the Bundesbank and they also make print version so the Federal Administration Yep and there are super expensive but the but you find everything online you'll find also so there's also an APP but it's really not so great but it works I mean it doesn't look great and looks quite I can't serie but yeah but it worked so and this other app you can see the hikes where you can go where you can walk it also Hasta biking routes for cycling and for Mountain biking and they have also other stuff including what was it I think rollerblading ruin a ban the thing with the sticks walking or something it's good Komo when you have the two sticks and walking walking's won't just walking power walking rollerblading and canoeing and I think that okay but today we'll stick to hiking rollerblading episode will come in about two years I know but just just to say again you find they're all the walking's the walks and the few zoom and our tons of really like a ton evolves and finished walking routes and that's all really well signed with number sense so honored you can combine them you will find it out if you look it up and then basically you differentiate between three difficulty levels which normal walk or mountain walk or and hind walk the normal walks normal walk and mountain walk as well we did we talk about it afterwards and the Alpine walkers really for adults stews are so don't go straight away they're just you know make your bill your yourself up yes exactly the other things are think about before us the office is the kind of things that you're going to have to take with you and I think if you're just going on a new walk up in the mountains probably don't need to propel much depends on the walkers take a drink or something exactly but if you're going up his mountains you WANNA be a little bit more prepared and I would say things that you should do beforehand is check the weather yes definitely and the higher you go the more in the mountains you our weather can really really really change very quickly and Dodi the walk might be why easy if you're up there on maybe like slender walking path everything's going great suddenly the weather changes that can turn from happy stroll to panicked -Tuation on the focus coming and you can't see much that can be dangerous yes so check the weather linked we can do that I think the thing that's really important is a pick your footwork heavily yes don't have to wear kind of CBA heavy clunky big boots if you're going on a kind of mountainous els it depends on what you're doing yes the heavy boots are really for like loose stones that you don't twist your ankle exactly but there are oversleep very cute but they're also heavy so for normal walks and so on it's totally not necessary I think what is very trendy autism these hiking mm trail running shoes good grip not say headley but we have tons of shops and Switzerland where you can go and osc them tell them what you did thing and they give you recommendations just probably don't wear flip flops gentle stroll yeah take supplies to something tweet takes and drinks sun cream the higher you go put some cream on why killing yeah good I'm sorry but just to mention again about this trail routes and so on I think it's quite well no does the signals are really good sign edge eh with this yellow things but there are also others under yeah exactly say if you're going on just a normal working path you will find a yellow sign heist the name of the place where you're hopefully walking to if not you're going in the wrong direction and usually there is a time long takes exactly and it's measured offer like murder military walk US military will so it's like six seven kilometers per hour I always thought they based on the Greenwich rates vaguely folk brisk brisk not false but you know walk astral Yeah Okay and it's not including brakes don't forget that might seem obvious but it's literally like if you start off now this coup yeah so those are the yellow ones and then what's up into the mountains by the train could be a little bit more difficult though be bigger differences hyperbole Cli signed based red and white striped tip yes that's true there are often also on a stone or somewhere like yeah and as you go along you'll also see the red and white stripes painted on select trees Uil Brooks it's means you're on track exactly so that's pretty nice just watch out written it's very well done but you just have to watch out for it a little bit if you don't know where you're going yeah and then you've got the next level up which is the blue signpost bloom White Stripey dip and this means you're on an Alpine trail it's going to be quite challenging could be going up rocks or glazes you need experience the knowledge of this kind of hiking going to be you need to be surefootedness and have a head for heights as well say that's not just something you just wake up and do one day yes definitely I would recommend not doing out all alone the first time yeah basically just you there are mountain guides you could ask someone like that be friends of yours or this really good facebook group not ours this time yeah Oh that you could ask analysis on wants to go with but there is an outdoors in Switzerland facebook green and the people who go on these things all the time yes I think that's a good idea actually so bearing all of this in mind I happen to know an experienced person it's worked in the mountains quite a few times exactly but one important thing forgot yes bring water and supplies but bring a Swiss picnic that's seems we made an episode it was picnic guys I think you can look for the ones yeah that's a mosque brain totally affects next year and we brought it into our trip yeah we did of course so last weekend when we weren't making the US we were heading up a mountain yes that's where our differentiation agains on our our differences it was a yeah I wouldn't directly quote it is a mountain mountain but it's just yeah no climbing without climbing is it really a mountain well yes okay so this is the thing I never thought I would make it to the top of a mountain on foot because I thought well you've got to climb but no you can head to the top of mountain without actually I and this is what we did last weekend yes we went to the Bundestag bits exactly and Auburn exactly and yeah it's basically it's a mountain but you can walk all the way up you may become really take a baby roller thanks Jack Yes but it's an operate experience yes it's good if you're a bit at the very top the path is not very wide and left and right is steep yes yes so it's good if you are if you can make it like if you not exactly then yeah Dan I it's not difficult or something just the only difficulty is that it quite a stony and yeah they're kind of some stain office narrow ish and it's very steep and and it's a long walk I mean going back to US awhile yeah it was like two and a half hours going up in same ish coming down I think yes doing halfway with the car so I would say nope stone no great thanks for asking me anyway I it's high and but if you you can totally take the bus to auto Bolton and then walk from.

"Some TV programs up just well or threat. Also a television local television from Tele Ben or tell it. Their race big actual dialect, so it's quite boring, but. Can I say, I mean it's like oh news? Yes. Local news, and they obviously, don't have any money to produce anything, exciting, I would say, but they, it's, it's quite interesting. I think also if you live there to, to, to hear about what's going on where you live exhaust, quite cool. Yeah. But don't expect like a BBC Switzerland or something. But yeah, that's you can definitely watch. I think. And do you have any other ideas, thinking, actually good idea would be to get a Swiss German, speaking tandem where you got? Well, I think you could look in Facebook groups, for example, and ask to someone want to give me with German for my whatever your mother tongue is because then if you're talking to people at work, or people on the street you don't even if a chance to ask them, can you say that, again, if you speak into someone that, you know, or it's the kind of setup situation to learn the language you can get into say it's more slowly or say something twice. I think that would be quite helpful that true. Yeah. So they go mytalk tip grades with all the tips, and we end the show with one Swiss sentence, you can say. He said. No, no, no. What did you give us a useful Swiss German phrase? Well, first before we ended I just want to tell if you want to find the tandem, or if you have questions about Swiss German, join our Facebook group, it's called Switzerland for English speakers. And I'm part of the group. So if I see your question I tried to answer it therapy great. And if you have a super exciting ton them, I mean, you speak like ten languages and you want to learn Swiss German, I'm sure you find also a tandem in our group or other groups, just give it a try. And so what's the sentence we should end? I can't to notice this German. Oh, hang on. I've got a good phrase actually, which is. Goma is Scott Zia. That's just a very random phrase. But it's a drink. Yes, I meant more something might thanks for listening. It's for the English speakers listening to the show, they'll need to know that phrase. Okay. Yeah. No, it's a Hodge. It's good leads ended with them. Let's go and have a drink. Go Mideast could see in..

"I've been a twice lineup prints hoop reckons, by the way in German. Exactly. So the light show which happens every year, I've been times before and have pretty much been able to understand it. Because the point of a light show is you go that's to look at the lights. However this year was a big surprise for both us. Can you explain a little bit more? What the light show is. Or is that totally clear to everyone because that was quite exciting. For Swiss people, I think. I don't know it can only speak for myself. But it's just a big production of lights on exactly something like music and know somebody talking and it's on the whole boondocks house. So it's really extremely in the animation. It's the light projects exactly at the Bundestag. For example. There is also the end up on this house in different colors. And so on that is sort of unusual thing about Ross's doesn't move. Yeah. They make use of the building behind exam, which is maybe a little bit different. So like, for example, the. Small prints. What did you say that little prints a little print? He climbs up to the top of the boondocks house. Yes. Like climbing along the the stones and so on and the different columns and stuff, and he sits on the window. Yes. Things. Like, exactly. So they kind of play with the structure of the building and the light. Yeah. I it's a must see if you're in Switzerland around Ben then you should go and see it at least once. Yeah. Definitely. So there's surprise this year the us or the maybe we would have if we had read more about it before we went was that they were telling this story, but they were telling it in French. So there wasn't constant speaking. But at some point in during the light projection, somebody speaks exactly and it was on Francais. Yeah. Which was surprising to me because of it. Well, I can't speak French, and I hadn't really expected that. And I didn't really understand what was going on. And I thought God my. Any person standing he doesn't understand this now, and I turned around to even the other people with and I also saw some somewhat confused faces. Well, which me to my question, which was you know? As when something is put on Switzerland. And we're pretty much in the middle of the country hair. You could maybe get by with French. But it's more often people speaking German true is the expectation that you can speak more than one national language. You know, is there an expectation? They can put on a light show do in French and that'll be fine for everyone. Well, first of all the two kinds of confused faces. I think on in our in our spot where we were it was quite far behind. So we couldn't really hear us. Well, what they were talking about. And that was the one kind and daughter who didn't understand French at all so mine was a bit of both. So I would say in Switzerland, you have to learn a second national language at school. And so everyone basically nose at least the basics of one second language, so but not everyone's speaks fluently a second language like me, for example, French solo we saw what you did that not all allow. Anyway. So, but it's also very much depends where you live and work, for example, when you live and work in. A city where you speak two languages, for example, peel PIN Bill otherwise known as Bill or free book. Fry book people are right. Then you would speak very often two languages at work as well. Also depends where you work in pen, for example, if you work at the embassy, and you might work French very often. So we should say that the country is basically divided by language barriers. And it's not that these bilingual towns scattered all over the country. It's we have to kind of French side of Geneva in have the Swiss German side with Zurich in it got the Italian part of chino rematch corner. And then where these places meet in the middle. You'll get these bilingual towns or cities by state by flying coach you show that very nicely to me. No, I'm not sure. Basically, you can say in the north east is German and the west is French in the south east is talian and in the east and a little bit. You know, all over the place in the east is on small spots is through March. So and Germany's most often spoken like sixty percent..

Sorry forgot to make suggestions on that. But of course, talks that will always be the icebreaker and show commune nalty Milcho, but I'll. Go with it. Okay. I mean, she means probably that you're together. Yeah. Dogs are a great way to break the ice as exactly and I would agree with that. As a person who doesn't have a dog because I often want to strike other people's Dokes, and then you can't help but get chatting and she says since I have two docks. I now my two friends. So that's great great for her. And I think it's a great advice as well. If you have talks, I think, you're one step ahead. Totally. But don't forget a dog is not just for Christmas. Good. So we had a question actually that came in via our website and also went onto our Facebook group. Yeah. From Ted Greenwood, it's quite interesting. So you must be extremely motivated to come to Switzerland. Because it came through our website, you recorded an audio file for us was really nice what you can do as well. Just make record an audio on your phone, and then send it to us via Email, for example, or you go on our website, Swiss Sanchez dot com, and then you will see there is a little bit. Yeah. There's a button you can just click and record it straightaway. Sisley coup for us. So I think just let's play it and hear what his question is a Lou. I am currently living in Canada and wanted to get a working holiday visa to go to Switzerland to meet up with my friend. I was just wondering how hard it is to get a job there. Basically of what I'm looking for it kind of is telling me that I have to play for the job first. And then they have to ask me to come to the country. But I have a friend over there right now. Let's just oh pairing. And I'm just wondering if you could just go there with working holiday these just find a job if that's at all possible. Just what the steps are basically any kind of information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. So that was Ted who left us a voice message on our website, and he'll say pasted in Facebook group as well. And basically, he's a Canadian he's trying to get a work visa in Switzerland. And he was wondering if anybody had any advice before trying to apply or any help on finding jobs that he had it's a little bit different from other working holiday visas. Yeah. Into thing is he as I understood he comes with the friend. So his friend already has a job the wants to move to Switzerland with him. And then in Switzerland look for a job. So. So I think that's quite interesting case and he had loads of replies. From our users there. Yeah. Exactly am well, a couple of people asking a doc- speakers with language dolls French that's going to be extremely helpful in trying to get Japan. Be what kind of experience he has what kind of filled he works. What kind of job he wants to apply?.

"And actually, no one has a right to be rucci because you're trying to thing is basically if you don't speak, Swiss languages, and the Swiss person, doesn't speak your language day might be route because they are embarrassed. And either they are embarrassed and say nothing or they might be route in the Swiss language and say something like, why don't you speak my language, but the thing is these are assholes ignored him. Walk away. Don't even say anything just ignore them. Otherwise, they will be only happy, and you will prove their point. If you just argue at them, just ignore them their extreme extremely Puget assholes. And I can't emphasize it's there are assholes in Switzerland. Like everywhere else in the world. But there are really nice people as well. They want to meet you, basically just go out there and find that exactly it's not I think once you you made the first few steps not. I'm not saying the first, but the first few steps, then it's getting much easier. Definitely. Good. Yeah. I think it's a really difficult topic. I think it's so hard when and the thing is also what would discuss before before we sought to record the podcast is that it's both of our science don't really see the other side. Yeah. So as an expert, you don't really see the Swiss site, where he is where you have to know Swiss people are open they want to know, you don't want to get in touch that. They are also interested in new connections. But also the other side that Swiss stones, you might have also to understand the Swiss don't see your side. They they don't know that you're insecure, and that it's extremely difficult for expats to integrate. They just think well it super easy. Why just they just joined the string and club. Just just come along with. And then you say you, but I don't understand one single word. And they would say think does matter does it no one. I mean, it's so if you see it from the other side, maybe you compare it to your country, and you think if another person with. Come. I also think no problem if that person doesn't speak English, but for that person, it's extremely hard. But. I mean, I think my TV. Anyway, also, we posted this question to our Facebook group and how they make friends and we had two very interesting points. I mean, yeah, we did quite funny points as well. There was chasing three. Sorry. We all really bad at pronouncing. He said, it's not easy. But then again, it's not easy anywhere. And I think that's a really good point. That's definitely how you can dive into Switzerland and say, well, it won't be easy to make new friends in Switzerland. But it's not easy anywhere..

"A voice message was really nice. That was really cool to hear me if you want to do the same by the way, case website, Swiss and chips dot com. A new can record a voice message there. So let's hear from David. Now, the one thing I miss about a true genuine Swiss with report actually two things the first one and what allegation will begin to see zoo degree centigrade or such degrees Fahrenheit, that's inaugural Clemson and the second one, of course, whatever that what Elvis, rather we're going to see snow that being dish Neff, organs. These are two very Swiss elements over whether reports also the phone, these special kind of wind that really does get to you some headaches as well, especially join decently warm days. Now in the u. k. the weather report is very much random as an. I'm so used to the fact that it could be raining when it says it's sunny or it could be sunny when it's raining. I just simply don't carry an umbrella because more often than not the weather reports going to probably get this one wrong as well. Whereas in Switzerland, the weather report is a bit more slightly more predictable and at least know tomorrow. If I'm going to central Zurich, I'm joy have to carry something like an umbrella like that. But still it is still very random. It is still unpredictable and having lived in places outside Switzerland and the UK I've been to other places. Like for example, the far east where the weather report is far more straightforward. Like for example, sun throughout all of autumn and winter -cational snow form, but in Switzerland. And in the u. k. it's so random. Sometimes I feel lazy. I just go outside with a jacket with a hood, and I let the weather do whatever really wants to do. And I think I'm always going to stay pretty much dry sense. Really at level, so David. Yep. Some really interesting points loads of information and yet has maybe just to to say, very in brief. He. Lift in London. Is that right now he's living in China and he lift in Switzerland. So yes, quite an experience. And I think he brings up quite a few points. For example, the there are in Swiss Medio the Switzer Fulco Swiss better forecast. There are some special expressions. You might not hear everywhere. For example, the follow grants. He mentioned which means snow line there is a changing from snow to rain. At which you'll start to get snow. Yeah, exactly. Great now, yeah, that's something we certainly don't normally have in England Malians comment..
