Mary Shelley: Founding Mother of Sci-Fi

"Many people would say and rightly so that seifi has many fathers but only one mother. The young woman credited with creating the genre mary shelley born to a renowned feminist writer and philosopher in seventeen ninety seven. Mary was sixteen when she fell in love. With the poet percy shelley and the two ran away together to become the power couple of the literary romantic movement. One summer at friend. Lord byron's villa in switzerland. The three of them spent long nights debating everything from art to politics to galvanise them also known as raising bodies from the dead using electricity on one eerie night byron challenged everyone to write a ghost story. Mary crafted a story in which the fantastic could happen within the realm of the possible. The book contains rather little in the way of actual science but it masterfully explores the social and moral repercussions of what might happen if certain scientific advances were possible. If you've only seen frankenstein movies you've been robbed of some of the best aspects of the story. The closest i've seen in popular retailing's was probably penny dreadful and to say close is to really give them a lot of credit. It also bears noting that mary shelley created an entire new literary genre when she was nineteen years old. I would definitely not want anyone reading the things that i wrote at. Nineteen or twenty to twenty five. Frankenstein was published anonymously in eighteen. Eighteen with a preface by percy shelley causing many to assume that he was the author since writing books wasn't a proper undertaking for a woman following bestseller status and successful screen adaptation. Mary set the record straight with the second edition. Eighteen twenty two finally taking credit for her masterpiece.

"Approved three additional facilities to produce vaccines for Coben 19. Only about 10% of people in the European Union have received the first toast compared with 22% in the United States. Teri Schultz reports. The EU blames part of its slow vaccine roll out on a lack of supply. The European Medicines Agency has granted its approval for additional production sites in Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland to help with the shortfall in vaccines. A new facility in Marburg, Germany, will join one and Poor's Belgium for producing the Fizer by on tech vaccine. The active ingredient in the AstraZeneca shot will now be produced in the Dutch city of Lighten, joining three other facilities and Madonna will add new manufacturing capacity in this Switzerland. European regulators have also approved allowing the visor vaccine to be transported and stored at lower temperatures than previously authorized.

Will Robots Replace the Human Workforce?

"Opportunities lie ahead after this extraordinary period in our history remains to be seen some of the consequences off this last year for societies Have bean the accelerations off existing trends such as more online shopping or working from home And here's another one. More workplaces and industries have started to use robots and artificial intelligence. To try and reduce human contact. Robots are already expected to play a greater role in the future. But the pandemic appears to have brought the future forward. So we brought together a couple off robot manufacturers to hear their insights. They are doctor classroom, Sager and Denmark. He's the CEO of Blue Ocean Robotics on Andy Jang in Switzerland from a BB robotics. And he began by describing where robots are already part of the workforce from cosmetics, perfume factories to countries and make sunglasses and I wear to also in Japan. There is a dumpling shop that uses our cobalt to pack some planes in California. There's a pizza shop that uses our robots to put pizza in the oven. Dr Clouds 90% of all robots in the world. They're used in manufacturing in our factories. That's where the robot started 50 years ago that still the main market and every time six robots are sold to the industry for manufacturing. One robot is sold for another purpose, but it's still only an early market. The robots made by Andy and also the robots that we make I work with people they're easy to use, but they're inside. They're very advance because they have to look out with the sensory system on the environment. They have to react in a reliable and trustworthy way. And this is very complicated. And it's just over the last handful of years that we have actually been able to build robots that can do this at a cost level, which is acceptable to customers. Let us get

Tools are getting better and better. Much of the marketing activities can be able to meet it. But do we need to automate everything that we cannot meet if so how can we stop to discuss the best practices. I invite enjoy keller. Cto of friendly of brazzi friendly marketing automation company. Straight out of switzerland. Hey joey welcome to the show. It'll be third year awesome. So let's start with a big intro. What are you doing. What's what's your journey. How did you end up friendly and more importantly while the friendly do ideal. Short niger me. Let's put it this way. I did send a lot of emails. Allen's working for america marketing company. we're focusing on email marketing a lot so i learned a lot about emailing in boxing least managements and then back to work in euro ethnically. I didn't move. Because i'm the same place but i joined friendly last year. Actually today the at one years old soins manipulation Thank you. I am the cto friendly in responsible or infrastructure warning our clients and in general. I'm responsible for their success.

We also have the analytics which is a calculus picks competitor. I'm insane so we are focusing. Most up been sore so you can check out on sale also than company which means you can see how much we earn how much we spend. We nothing. We have nothing to what that i saw that on the website. It's is everything is super transparent. You do do share everything. Which is i think it's amazing. I only so this type of transparency. Approach i at with buffer where they share pretty much everything about their company on how they are doing and then he turned to most of the indie hackers. And the in this daca preneurs day. Also do sheriff thing and i just glad to see the friendliest part of that network to green jacket and you see conversation piece and how do you. So who are the decline of friendly. So how do you help them. Mostly small businesses are medium sized businesses. Why they're coming to you. So people are coming to s- clients coming to us because they realized that they need marketing automation. The funny thing is that most of these companies don't even know what marketing automation as point. Because it's a boss for everyone's talking. I wanted to as that than another text savvy. Startup companies do understand and use automation every day but business and medium size businesses who are not like super tech savvy. They don't really know. What is the marketing automation. In the general heard about divert of course because it's a buzzer But they don't know what they can out mate. Yes so marketing automation.

Quantum technology and implications for security in todays computer infrastructure

"Welcome to the cybersecurity weekly podcast. I'm jay lewis podcasting from singapore today joining us today. We have a very special guests from switzerland who is based in zurich. And he's a doctor khumalo. Got the donnie. Who is the security researcher. We've could ask security so thank you very much for joining us today jane. I'm very happy to be here with you today. To be honest to it's quite difficult. Also for ricardian super announced. So don't worry about that. So so the first question. I think many of our listeners will be quite keen to know is is quantum computing a high. Because when you read the news and media nowadays we see a lot of investments that have been announced by governments for example the us national science foundation and the department of energy announced. I think with more than one billion over. The next five years in quantum information systems and russia and germany also not far behind announced close to seven to eight hundred million investment china as well spending time billion on the effort. In the private sector's google and ibm are also spending in excess of one hundred million and even bangs like j. p. Morgan is also looking at developing quantum lonzo banking but on data hen. Also some in saying that quantum states are not reliable stable or quite understood well enough to replace the traditional classical computers and some believe that they will never be able to do so. So my question to you is is quantum computing a hype well All these people you mentioned are very smart so if they spend all this money it must be true right now. Kidding apart we have seen tremendous tremendous advancements in this technology in the in the latest ears. So just put it into perspective. So people started discussing about quantum computing. Already more than fifty years ago but it became interesting. I would say nineteen ninety-four with the discovery your applications for cyber security now. At the beginning people were thinking. Okay this is something very interesting from a theoretical point of view. It will never be real. You know it's it's kind of Would be something like Science fiction like however then after that we have seen continues continues progress on the on the research and development and we especially in the last few years we have weakness a situation from you know we can be really controlled. One beat of quantum information to prototypes. That are actually working. So they are still prototype so they are still not powerful enough to tackle Real world problems. But i wouldn't call it to hype this point so from my personal point of view. The trend is quite clear. So you mentioned the difficulties. In controlling information and the related technology so from from a theoretical perspective the technologies well-understood now. There is engineering challenges into building. Something that is working but this is the case we any brand new technology. I mean justice I transistors. They were big bulky. They were barring city You remember the famous quotes like sixty four. Kilobytes of memory should be enough for an anyone. That's right so like every new technology. There is challenges. So what i see is that from a technological point of view the the tuition is progressing much more rapidly than many expected to ten years ago. Now the question. Everybody's asking his okay. But when are we going to have computers. That are not prototypes anymore. That are something that can solve real world problems My impression is that we are very close to the point but there is a difference in what you consider useful because a lot of people say like okay when we'll quantum computers break cryptography. Well i i think that's not a good measure of progress for quantum computer because quantum computers can do much more than that.

Algorithms concerning distribution optimization disrupted consensus and distributed collaborations systems soi robotics and online voting and in this particular eighty of research.

And how does this affect the oral fixation off the elegant now. This is something that's interesting to me in my engineering part of the brain working for big company. I'd say well we can control all of our nodes about some rogue employees or something. But i guess outside of a company the world really runs on bigger systems. How common are these sort of peer to peer distributed problems in people's everyday lives definitely. I made for example. Just consider our current situation which is the ongoing pandemic. Let's see your these. Scooby trackers right you have these scored trackers on your phones than you. Are gary these records with the sword these strikers in vancouver you go in close proximity to someone else that say who might annette it or who might in recent history being tested positive so this gives you a notification. Hey you know you gaming on equity this person and he was the best positive so you may want to take some precautions. Analysts say based on these kind of trackers companies and government started building policies. Just imagine how difficult it would be if someone starts messing around for example. Let's say be Falsely claimed themselves as high-risk saying that. I just hires Ever i'm a Is also is that would discreet Rice appear to be systems are already there used is just a v are naively ignoring the fact that some of the notes in the systems be malicious authority. Fonte just like internet. You have millions of notes on the net not everything. Not everything is on the cloud on server controlled by big or big komen administration. They are so many of these notes that are spreading misinformation they have destroying to disrupt the internet for example you might have heard of. Thanks like jamming attacks Jammed the settlers despite sandy query. So you know these kinds of notes vais fairly common in our everyday use in suggests we get to hear them band. There's a big disaster. Or there's an actual big down of these systems when i started learning about distributed computing and of course it was called big data at the time. One of the first examples is term frequencies so in a lot of documents you the percentage of times you see something that often gets labeled as embarrassingly parallel because you just want to frequency. You need the numerator divided by the denominator and it's easy to divide that problem up and rejoin it but not. Every problem is so embarrassingly easy to solve. What about your specific research into gradient descent. What makes that one hard to do in a distributed fashion. You had distributed Any one this networks to be useful to the specific problem. Let's say that you are trying to solve for example as you just mentioned either. You're trying to get the frequency of a border from documents spent on the internet or let's take a step forward but apps you are trying to build some kind of image classified so different notes on the have different data sets. Let's say images of their dogs. And you want to use these images of dogs neck so many images of those who could be a very strong image classic fire for dogs something that would dismantle the human ability declassified at all so you wanna less this complicated Now designing image classified using all these distribution data said on the internet different notes having different data points. It's quite complicated even when you have all the data points at one body a machine. It's a headline. more of the. The sets are divided in different machines so to ensure that comes like these like machine learning run smoothly when certain nodes in the network militias spinal challenging not descending. It's very interesting to study. How these types can be done. Smoothly on gedeon descent is specific That is by far the was algorithm used from sheet lending pieces and what happens ingredient descent. Is you have these different. Data sets distributed on different notes. Therefore defend nodes have different loss functions. Now what we are trying to do now in this district. Setting is minimized the aggregate of all these functions are loss functions. Now when you're doing this by nature the most commonly use angry gradients design.

"switzerland" Discussed on Extra Pack of Peanuts Travel Podcast

"Extra packet peanuts. The show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less and yes almost everyone is spending less right now on travel so it has been nice for our budget. That's true. Yeah my joining me. Today is the person who was definitely the better looking host of Lights Camera Switzerland a TV. Show that her. I got to film and aired on cable. Tv in the US and Canada. My wife and concentrate companion yes. That's very generous of you. Think you for the Nice shout out. We Love Switzerland that this is one of the most beautiful countries that we've seen it so stunning that it seems. I mean we when we first went to Switzerland travel win and he lived there and I went to visit him for a week or two. And we were up in maybe Brindell gigawatt Muren's from Harry Potter Grundel. Walled is also near there. But you're right and we took a picture of us like drinking. Glass of wine with the Sun was going down and I put it up on facebook because this was before instagram and our friends were like. Is this a real picture? You look like you're sitting in front of a fake backdrop. It is just beautiful. Yeah we have had some amazing experiences Switzerland as heather mentioned. And we're talking about Switzerland today in case you couldn't guess that during our quarantine. Diaries are shorter. Form unedited off the cuff version of our podcast. Which you can watch on TV. So if you listened podcast you can go watch on TV. If you WANNA see us in person were sitting outside and our backyard right now or obviously you can listen to it on our podcast feed so we had some really good memories in Switzerland. Because we've spent a lot of time there so back in twenty twenty ten two thousand nine. I lived there for four months in Los on so right up the right. The lake from Geneva so in the French speaking part of Switzerland. If you've never been to Switzerland there are four official languages but there are three kind of free speaking parts. You have the French speaking. The German speaking part in the Italian speaking part and so I was living in the French speaking part for four months. Heather got to visit me a little bit. They obviously I had a ton of experience guys living there for four months and then we also have gone back and we filmed a TV show over ten days. A one hour TV special called Lights Camera Switzerland there and that was super crazy and very hectic and we had about thirty days worth of activities jammed in to ten days. So we have. This is going to be very hard for me to pick out the best of stuff because it was two very different experience when I lived there you experienced stuff is kind of becoming like a local because I was working there and all that too I was eleven years ago. It was eleven years ago but then when we went from the TV show. It was just go. Go go go go go go. We were doing so much and that was five years ago. Five years almost completely opposite type of experiences. But we're going to do it anyway. We're GONNA try so here. We go. We're going to give you our best of Switzerland. Heather's the cards here and we're each going to answer this one quite not one question more each going to answer these questions individually first one is the best activity and I know mine straightaway. Gosh go ahead. I done so much there. There's so much I mean you could talk about hiking. Obviously that's incredible but because I'm more into leisure activities. My favorite thing is taking the boats on the lakes and we've done them on multiple lakes but my favorite one is to do it on Lake Geneva they have like the Swiss boats are so beautiful. They're so clean there on time. Of course they're very structured there and we've had both experiences on these boats so when we were there when I was working there as an intern we did just the normal passes but then when we went and we still on the TV show we had the VIP passes where you could get access to the upper decks. And I mean both experiences were incredible and I just think sitting there relaxing watching the landscape go by on a boat is just magical so I lived on Lake Geneva and Man. This is probably gonNA come up as my best memory. So it's hard to split memory from activity by lived on Lake Geneva. We took that boat. Ride all the way around. You know you could go to every on in France and where the waters from you know. So you're you go across the river to lake from France We did it on a few other lakes as well like we did it on Lake Lucerne and took the boats there when we were back from for the new show so the lakes off. I'm Geneva we win to Montreal. We saw the Chateau de she own. Which Oh my gosh. What a beautiful castle that is. We went both times. We were you it multiple times about twice the first time when you were interning there then the second time when we do the TV show there and this was after we were done filming so we were much more relaxing and we win and we was toward the castle again and then we swam right there next to the castle which we didn't do the first time. Yeah like I did once. But I didn't the first time. And it's pretty surreal to be in that type of atmosphere and then you just jump in the lake and getting your swimsuit and stare at this gorgeous medieval castle. So I'm GonNa I think I'm going to save it for favorite memory so I'm GonNa cop out because my my favorite activity is is the lakes as well. But I'm going to save that for from memory. 'cause I've got some specific about that. So that gives me a little bit of an option here for best activity and I think the best activity is for me was and I feel so bad saying because heather didn't get to do and she wanted to the first time we lived in Switzerland and it was too windy and I was scared to do it and then the second time only one of US could do it and I was chosen to do it and that is paragliding. Heard about that yeah. We'll take your back and go so I got to paraglider in in interlocken The the first time we were there we booked a flight for me to do it and then they cancelled it because of the weather. Yes so just. It seems like I don't like height and I thought I would be crazy scared and I loved it going with a guide. Obviously you're not up there by yourself. And it was absolutely magical to just be floating above the most majestic landscape it. You can picture the mountains and the lakes and all that So if you get a chance paragliding especially there is second to none. It's stunning. I mean you know how stunning landscape is when you're hiking through walking through but then to be up above it who there is not much stuff that is better than that so paragliding magical and you didn't do it in Interlocken. You actually did it right off. The some mountaineer Mierlo. Yeah right we're going to do it in interlocken first and then I did it in. Lucerne over Lake Lucerne in that area and interlocking is inbetween to lake so there are lakes. They're interlocking and that's sending place as well. I mean oh my goodness this is hard. Yeah it's going to be hard. We're GONNA TRY NOT TO COP OUT HERE WE'RE GONNA try to give you very specific things but there are a lot. There can be a lot of answers depending on the day to this. Next one is best meals best meal. This might be the the one that I don't have a ton of options for when I lived there as an intern. I was supposed to get paid a thousand dollars a month. Which if you're living in the most expensive place in the world which is Geneva and that area always one or two thousand dollars isn't GonNa go very far. It's especially not gonNa go far if thousand dollars at they're supposed to pay you they don't actually pay you. That's GonNa go even less far so we had myself in the three guys. I live with entrance literally had no money like just the money that we had in savings to live in Switzerland for four months so we were not eventually get paid after. I was home for like four months. I got some of my four granddaughters supposed to get paid so we were living very skin at that point. That's a little UK slang for your little British slang for. We had no money so what this meant. Was that my favorite meal. I'll give you like two because one was like one a higher level version the other the lower level version was that we had to go to the grocery store and we had to buy the cheapest thing there you could buy was baguettes tomato and Mozzarella Mozzarella cheese is very cheap there and and we were splurge every once in a while on Salami and me and my buddies would literally every day four. Make have a bag with sliced mozzarella tomato and Salami on it and we would eat that every single day which was awesome. No because we could go outside of our office and I would go across the street and sit in the park and it was usually beautiful days because I was there in the summer into fall and we just have a picnic and we have that same picnic a bunch of times when I return. Actually this. This isn't really my favorite meal that we had. But it's definitely the best memory meal because when we started doing this in Switzerland eleven years ago was kind of the first time that we'd been traveling together and as trump said he was interning so it's Kinda like backpack. We were poor. We report report. We started doing this. We started just going to the grocery stores and getting these treats and in the US. We don't really eat that. I mean we do now but it was just kind of a fun thing like okay. We're GONNA do this. It's really cheap. And we started doing all on that trip anywhere we would go. We didn't really eat out very much. Harris. We talk about our favorite meals in. Paris are just going me started like the Grocery Store Picnic in Europe. And it's still one of my favorite things to do in even exceed some of the. Michelin rated restaurants that we went to a good Alami Mozzarella and tomato on a bad get is incredible and so doing. Every day I wanted to tell the upper level versus every once in a while we'd splurge and there is a place. In Lausanne called Jackie's that made sandwiches and it was seven euros are seven francs and we would go and when we had enough money we would go and get a hot sandwich. Did Awesome Chicken sandwiches. I'll with onions. And Cheese. And Mayo Ed's good it's we would splurge and we'd go to Jackie's like once a week stand line order an awful French you know. Everyone knew we were like the outsiders air because this was a local a local news. Just take away there. Was this guy behind the Grill. And this little store front so yeah. It was always a super special. Treat to go and get a Jackie Sandwich. Best meal well..

"Jets on Jerry. I'm Simone and today. We thought we talk about when to shake hands in Switzerland in particular because the moment title handshaking crisis that has broken out across Switzerland due to the seaward Corinne virus. Exactly no handshaking allowed and you can see the trouble that it's causing ask. Swiss people are holding hands. Bring them back going. Oh my God. We can't shake hands what we're going to be. There was the big scandal when amber said the Interior Minister. Yes he said public on TV. We have new guidelines from from the Bunda some food. Kosovo tight the office of Public Health. Exactly and he said no handshaking allowed anymore then like in the afternoon or someone he someone came to visit him and there was a photo with him shaking hands. You just can't help it. That's the next day. He made a joke and pressroom press conference and said I know it's quite difficult of my own experience so that was big off and basically it's just maybe think a lot about how important shaking hands and Switzerland because now you can see the panic on people's faces when they can't and it's made me wonder these situations where I should have been shaking hands but haven't been and you know what am I supposed to do but even only in these last few very few days like two three days I experienced myself at least like four times when I spread my hand out too quickly to back were wave. Yeah so I think one of the kind of important questions that people seem pick up on US Westland is. There's a lot of hand shaking going on but it's also a lot of kisses going on when you meeting people. Yeah that sounded a bit like source. Did we should polite kissing these like on the cheek. The kiss on the cheek three times is quite common in Switzerland occasionally too but maybe we'll come back to that in another episode. Someone someone wrote in I think in our facebook group oriented email. I CAN'T REMEMBER. I also don't remember who it was so. I'm sorry that I have forgotten about your name. But she or he wrote to us and said this podcast should be called the German. The guy to German speaking Switzerland and this is another example where. I think it's true because I grew up in the German speaking part and we live. We live here and it's big different quite big differences especially to the French speaking part and Italian speaking part and also different his to if you live in the mountain or in the city we tried to give you a general overview. Exactly although I don't know in detail for example how is it in? You Know Geneva Okay. So first of all when is a must do for shaking hands. I'll give you my list and you can tell me if I'm way off. Yes okay so for me. It's must've shake hands when you're being introduced for the first time regardless of who is business meetings but do you really know the person greeting someone important but maybe not too important like the Queen or whatever and saying goodbye after a business meeting yes over t fool basically?.

"The tourism anymore and now it's reopened with new owners but that's a very beautiful spot. It's very interesting restaurant and then it looks over Lake Siasi which essentially means Lake Mountain lakes. It's a very beautiful lake. It reflects the the surrounding mountains in an amazing way. Because it's at the bottom of this very sharp valley so you get all the mountains reflected right in this lake. And there's cows walking around in a lot of Swiss areas you'll find cows all over the trails. Their sheep widener summertime in the summertime. Yes from my perspective of Switzerland which is only in summer so right right and there's also some very interesting interesting geological formations there the sexy luke which is a gigantic fin of rock. That comes out of the ground and rises above the valley. And that's a beautiful area to hike by and you can also see people climbing to the top and then if you are adventurous and you're good hiker you you can go to the top of Santa's and going to the top you have to go through some snow even in the summer and there's some ladders and runs that you have to climb up which is not really dangerous but if you have a fear of heights I would not try to go to the very top because you're gonNA run into that need to turn around. But I did a large hike in this area that you can do to combine all of these sites into one where you go to this cable car horror casten and then it's it's about a six and a half hour hike six hour hike to go from there all the way to Santa's and you walk over the whole area and you really get to see this fascinating geology. And unlike most of the other mountain ranges in Switzerland in the weight shaped and there's these three three beautiful lakes there being one of the and I think that's fantastic day-trip from Zurich. It's maybe an hour and a half to two hours to get there depending on which part right you go to in which cable car you take terms of where you're going. You're heading east from Zurich over towards the border with Austria and Liechtenstein. Exactly exactly and from the top of ethanol which is one of the peaks on this little mountain range or from Santa so you can see into Austria Liechtenstein Zayn and even Germany sure there's people that are parasailing in paragliding there whether you're doing an intense day hike or going to enjoy the views walk by the Lake and look at cowes. I think it's a really fantastic area. And also the trainer in is probably what you expect in terms of Switzerland and in that it's rolling Green Hills and farms so it's probably your idyllic Swiss area and I think that that is really a special place in Switzerland because it's also not as heavily touristed because it's not down in the interlocken area. Okay well On. We should probably move along here anything else. We want to say about the Zurich area before we move further into your itinerary. I'll quickly mentioned two other dating options without going going into detail but one is going to Stein online. which is a very beautiful little village on the Rhine which is in northern Switzerland and it has a castle above it that you can walk to you and also? The town is filled with murals on all these old buildings so the the whole town is essentially covered paintings. And so that's a really nice area somewhere. You can go if it's rainy some of you don't want to go into the mountains but you can still walk around this town down in its very delightful. There's people that bike through town along the river there is a nice day trip and also going to the glares area which is southeast of Zirk. Man This is an area that I have rarely seen mentioned in guidebooks of Switzerland. Because it's I think we're Swiss twist people go to hike in vacation but there's some very beautiful hiking there in one thing in the episode about UNESCO sites it has the Sardana a geological area right. And some really nice hiking there. Some of my favorite hiking in Switzerland In that area I would say excellent and then you moved us onto. Do we want to go to interlock next. I think before interlocken will stop at Lucerne shirt will be on the way. You'll take a train from Zurich Lucerne and this is also also spot. You could do as a date for dessert. Because it's a fifteen minute train ride but it's a city that you could go here and I think you could spend your week just in this area as well and so learn is probably my favorite old town. In all of Switzerland it has to. I believe it used to have to now. Still send old covered bridges that go across the lake. Right as you come out of the train station you'll see that and you'll see the lake there and in the summer they'll get covered in pollen so the roofs of these large bridges become yellow in there on the sides. There's flowers all over them and it's an amazing sight and inside these bridges they have paintings depicting part of it too picks the plague so the action very morbid morbid paintings inside this beautiful covered. Bridges not remember that they're crea- paintings. You have the sense of walking through this beautiful area. I'm smelling the flowers. And then you look up at these paintings and it's skeletons carrying dead people around so a mess message for Hersher and it's also very easy to navigate because it's not that big so you walk right along the river that goes backwards from the lake. Pass these bridges and you walk until you get to the old town walls which still stand and you can go up into them until ugliest five pm every day so you may want to do this. I because you won't be able to get in once it's nighttime you can go up to the top and you have a beautiful view overlooking the city and Mount pilots is right next to Luzern so you have a view of that in the mountains in the distance in the lake. Think that that is to me. Stereotypical Swiss city is. When you look out over that view and then from there another thing to do is you can take a fifteen minute? Walk or take a tram over to the line monument lizard and this is a really large stone sculpture dedicated to Swiss mercenaries who died during the French Revolution. And it's this gigantic beautiful alliant carved into a cliff overlooking a small fountain. And that's very nice site in terms of one other thing to see the old town before you start going to the mountains in the area and Dan so once you've done that which to be honest probably takes you half a day to do that just like most cities. In Switzerland Luzern is not very big. It's very nice. It's it's not GonNa take up your full day to see if you're on the move and so this is where the Swiss pass really comes in handy because then now you've taken the train from Zurich and now you're going to hop onto a boat to get across the lake at which would normally be very expensive but again with the Swiss pass free so you'll take that boat over to mount. Rigi is one of the options you can go to and so you can take a boat right to the base of Mount Rigi and the news the Swiss pass to get most of the way up by cable car. If you choose or you you can hike and again this free with the travel pass and from there you hike to the top. It's maybe an hour. This has a very nice view over the lake. It's not tall mountain. It's maybe fourteen hundred to sixteen hundred meters tall but it has a great view of the lake. Very nice it has the mountain backdrop and itself. Is this Rolling Hill with a lot of flowers on it. Cows things like that Swiss things. Then you can take lead. It's a COG wheel train back down or the cable car. Either way and then head back to learn. That would probably be a full day trip but that would be a really great introduction to Switzerland so if you wanted to leave Zurich maybe Zurich has a festival going on when you first get thank you could easily go straight to lose earn and that could be year introduction to Switzerland and I think that'd be really terrific because you don't have to do any insane Zane hiking yet recover from jetlag explore this beautiful city take a cruise on the lake and it's a wonderful experience also in this area. We have a few other day trip options. which can do so one? That is free is you can go to stow. which is this mountain town town on the other end of the lake? So you can either take a cruise ship there which would take that cruise ship but a cruise there on a smaller ship which would take a little awhile. Get there because it's at the far end or you can take train and I believe with the Swiss pass again. This cable cars free. So it's another thing you can quickly quickly fit in if you want without paying any extra money as long as you've gone with that option do a short hike there. It's not a really big hiking area but it has some nice views and then also from Lisburn you can go to Engelberg which is about an hour away from there. You can get to mount titlists which is very famous mountain Switzerland. I would say I think it's Luzern is an area where you're gonNA start running into large tour groups. I'd say mostly Disley Indian tour groups. I think you've mentioned on previous so you'll see that some of these places really know what they're doing with marketing young crowd. They have a Chinese or Indian restaurant right at the top in the end. Right right here about titlists two. They have some very fancy Indian restaurants and things. But there's also a really nice hike here which you go to Yuck pass and it's called the four lake so you'll pass yok walk test. My chairman is not so J. O.. C. H. US just for those playing the game yes. My German doesn't extend much biana spreading kind wishes. I can't speak German. So that hike is very nice is very doable. Thank for all skill skill levels and you get to see some beautiful mountain lakes. It's close to Lucerne and I think that's a great option and the last thing in this Korea l mentioned before we move on is that you can go to the standard Horn which is a little bit south. It's maybe an hour away if that from Lisburn and this is a special cable car because it has sunset options so most cable cars close at maybe five pm so really her. Unless you're playing to hike down which if you're doing day trips I was. I didn't necessarily have time to do that. You can go up. I believe it's Thursday through Saturday is maybe although I'm sure that changes depending on the season you go up and it has a very nice restaurant at the top and very nice three sixty view walking area. I believe you can go down until midnight. Maybe I'm not sure exactly how late but seeing the sunset from there which I really got to seek at least would have to be on the train heading back desserts so getting to see the the pink glow on the mountains and the sun setting over. Mount pilots in was earned was very beautiful will and sunset in summer in Switzerland..

"The bags back on a roll and read. It's real good passport. The camera traveler six hundred eighty seven today. The amateur traveler talks about mountains and glaciers and hikes castles roles and festivals and Sherlock Holmes as we go to the country of Switzerland. Welcome to the traveler. I'm your host Chris Christianson with no further ado. Let's talk in some detail about Switzerland and I like to welcome the show Zach best from Boston. Who has come to talk to us about Switzerland Zach? Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. That's for having me and before we get started. What is your connection with Switzerland? I I went to Switzerland in the summer of two thousand eighteen with the biology undergraduate summer school and that was at the University of Zurich. I want there to do research a issue for the summer and that I really I fell in love with country with Zirk and I decided to look for another program to go back in the summer of Twenty nineteen and I applied for the thinks with scholarship. I should and with that. I went back to the University of Zurich again. Right did immunology research for the summer. Very cool in. Why should someone on travel to Switzerland so I will say that Switzerland is beautiful? But there's a lot of places in the world that are beautiful so I think there's a few additional things that make Switzerland a very good destination to go to for And that is. It's a very small country. which makes it so that there's a very high density of locations to get to and it's very easy to get to all of them not just because there's a lot in their close together but because there's a lot of infrastructure in terms of trains and buses Nelson Cable car is to get too high up in the mountains even if you're not someone who hikes all the time you can still get to that a top the mountain view and then also it's very safe and while the main language is an English and I don't speak any German under French Italian I was able to refine with Dhaka or bt and asking people to speak in English? So I would say hey. Those are the reasons you should go there on vacation. Excellent and what kind of tenor are you recommending for us. Today I've played a little itinerary. Three of what. If you wanted to tour around the center of Switzerland's so this will go from Zurich to Lucerne to the interlocken region and to burn and I'll talk about day trips from each location so Salang mountains because primarily what I did there on. The weekends was hiking. So we're not going to talk about about necessarily in the matterhorn but stuff. That is more in the center of the country so that you could probably do it in one trip and easier and simpler fashion excellent. So you're starting us in Zurich. I'm assuming better plane connections there then promptly anywhere else in the country yes exactly start off with flying into Zirk Irk. And then I'll say that order. This itinerary doesn't really matter so you could go from Zurich Bern interlocking where he can go from Zurich Lucerne earn or. You could even do this as day trips from Zurich which for me. I was only traveling on the weekends because I had to do research in the lab during the week right and so all of my traveling leveling was as day trips which can get hectic it can lead to a long day but it's totally possible with the trains and you can definitely fit in in fact the second time I was there in summer two thousand nineteen. My mom can stay with me for a week and we saw the country by doing day trips from Zurich and went to a lot of these places in that way so really. What works best for you in terms of you find a great hotel deal for week certain area you can go there in still all these destinations from that point instead of having to do it in the loop that I'm gonNA lay up but to walk you through it in a manner that maybe makes sense mentally? I'll go from Zurich Eric Wizard interlocking. I think I've mentioned on the show before because we've done other shows on Switzerland other. We focused more on western Switzerland. We've done shows on Basel and we've done a couple of shows on Geneva and then we did one recently in all the UNESCO World Heritage sites so I don't know for sure whether I mentioned this for a while at least but we went to Zurich one time for a particular festival. That's eric runs every three years. We'll talk about a little a bit later. And that's the only city we've ever been in the world where my wife started looking.

"switzerland" Discussed on Swiss and Chips

"This is Swiss on chips. You'll British guy to Switzerland. Hi and welcome to you. Citizenships on Jay, and I am Simone city. And today in this episode of the podcast with talking about what's it here in Switzerland on a Sunday, we take an special trip out on this Sunday in particular. Come back to that in a minute. I'm real. So Austin off Facebook group this morning, Switzerland English-speakers if you're on Facebook, check it out and join what you guys doing a Sunday. We had lots of responses. One of the big questions when you first moved to Switzerland is a Swiss actually do on a Sunday if all the shops are closed, what are they doing? Exactly. And I think it takes a little bit of time to take out. So those are the three main things we're going to talk about in this episode. So he just thought if we thought, okay, wasn't nice thing to do on the Sunday in bun. And we decided to come on a smooth day trip to the local mountain slash hill the Gooden. Yes, the goodness really nice place, and I think you. You just mentioned the most important question. Is it a hill or is it just a mountain or. Worth. No, I think that's, that's it's a really nice place to go, especially if you are in town in Ben living because it's such it takes only a few minutes and you are in a quite different world and it's super nice screen as comb and for everyone something to do for families and so on. And yeah, we thought quite often you asked what are others doing on in Switzerland or what the typical Swiss do. And I think that might be interesting for some people to know. I'm not sure if it's so much different to another country, but we will find out today. Yeah. So yeah, let's let's let's start maybe with the Facebook poster where we asked the group think the we had some quite interesting. Interesting re replies there. Yeah, because you know, when you first meet her to Switzerland, depending on where you've come from, I think this idea of being closed on a Sunday and lots of lots of restaurants and cafes being closed as well. You just think, what am I going to do that if I can't get shopping? Well, so I pay this question this morning. 'cause interested to hear other people are up to date and we had lots of answers. Dini's living in Albanian said that she's really lucky because she lives in such beautiful place and she can head out hiking senior. She's finished coffee basically, which is yes. She goes climbing. I saw climbing his, yes, she's going clamping. Yeah. Uh-huh. Fantastic because Lynn rate my kids and husband like to sleep in, I might make some cookies. Yeah, that sounds like a nice Sunday flow better Sunday for the kids and husband to sleeping in and then gets away Cup to the cookies. Yeah, totally making stuff is nice. Sorry if I'm not going to pronounce your name correctly, but I'll try shell a tiny said he would normally gave for a small hike around the speech, Vermont, the French speaking part of the country. But today he's in Syriac because these being at a hacker Thon happen, if we make some very interesting stuff, I think he is working on his PHD s. forms. Yeah, exactly. So that's true. Steph said she's going for via far oughta who. I think just. Holiday not via fraught. It's these climbing courses. They're already kind of slightly setup few, and I think it's a way of getting into climbing without heading out yourself and with a ripe on your back in a few nails and you hunt fear for us. It's the sort of structured climbing Cosby in nature surprise, you know? Yeah. I mean, it's just a poff felt I don't know what it is, but it's them. I've never heard. Interesting. Yeah. I mean, I would definitely not go because I didn't really like the idea. I know noise tracks, but I didn't alternate so yeah, guy. So that's okay. She'll say, said interest, visiting a museum going for a war sting. Hang out with friends and family. No. I think that's that's actually quite classic. Oh, let's see. Yeah. Yep. And then Edward right that they hope in their nineteen seventy-one landrover unexplored a Swiss countryside. Yeah, that's great. That's definitely not so much classic. So he's the different people. Jiang. Lots of different things. Yeah, but but when I look through these post, I would already. I maybe with already guessed that. These are experts really Swiss because I, I don't think I think experts are even more interested in discovering Switzerland. You know what I mean? Like exploring and looking different places unsown. Sure, definitely. The Swiss are also doing that, but but I think many Swiss families, especially they. They also come the four to go everywhere in Switzerland, for example, because trains are quite expensive. And so they might just stay where they live, and but they're two different plastic would be to go just hiking around the place or looking for mushrooms in this this deceased. Oh yeah, and things like that. You know this, this. Discover all the things you can do where you lift basically not so much discover Switzerland. I think that's the main difference

"Today we're gonna be talking all about how you can find the job in Switzerland as a foreigner. Why are we talking about that today? You may well, ask yourself? Well, not only is it one of the biggest? If not the biggest question that you have before you move here, but or recommit ner if I'm pronouncing your name correctly and apologies if not posted it in our Facebook group, actually, it's good Switzerland for English speakers and Rica had a number of different questions that she based in there. And then we took all of her ideas, put them to pole and as lovely people in our Facebook group said that they wanted to know most about how you can find a job in Switzerland as a foreigner. Yeah, and it's really cool at this Facebook group starts to develop with loads of our listeners and super exciting because you also for example, the other day where all these people are coming from so exciting to read where all these people are coming from. Let's let's have a look at a few now. Yeah, that'd be great. For example, Steph time she comes from Geneva and is now in the Midland. So Swiss sent. That's cool to Maitland and so Hello Steph. And then we have not not Talia from when it's Wella and living in chef Osen. Now today. Yeah, we have lots of people from India living in Surrey people from scope, living in bam, and also people that live abroad and just are interested in Switzerland or have for let relatives or something like that. So it's really interesting to see all these people coming together, and we really hope that you enjoy it and that people who are part of the group that they can influence a little bit our show. Yeah, that that's for interesting because we might have a good idea for the program and then we can skew if you agree what you think you might like to hear about somewhere along the way we find out make an episode and actually like it. So that's let's go back to our original point. He claims to stop how to find a job in Switzerland for people living abroad. Exactly. So I think the big first question is, where enough can you look for job? Where would you find job by penins? Yes. Well. The classic version is you go online and you just search wherever you counter. We have loads of Maine search platforms. I will put a few on our website on Swiss and chips dot com and put all the links stare. So you can just follow them or you go on Google and you just search for finding a job in Switzerland or be a bit more specific. If you already know you come and live in Ben, for example, you might search for finding Joplin pen and then you end up on one of these city platforms like Stehlin Ben punked Sahar is for example, for Penn search platform. And there you find all the jobs you can subscribe to the newsletters and you can sign up and they'll notify you basically when a new jokes climate them hustle, come home also app six. And what would be the phrase that you look for in German if you wanted to find a website that's in Gemini, anointing glitch, Joep, sue in that right. It may sound. It may sound like a stupid question, but the big stumbling block PK define the site, but how did you do it by the way? Well, I was looking for a pretty specific job basically. I used to work in radio, read it in like nice. Yes, like nice, but doesn't this case very. So because I was working in radio more back then I was looking for Joe Barack could speak English. So like production company or a media company will something along those lines. So I was looking at websites and Switzerland's that had something to do this by the had something an English on that website. And that might be a clue that they have English speaking clients. For example, that was my starting point. I ended up finding an English speaking radio station. It just happened. They had a job and in the end it just happened that they chose me. So here I am. A lot of kind of look collides. Basically, I think that's always how it works. So also for Swiss people, you need a bit of luck and someone knows somebody and so on. That's why I would also recommend if you search on all these major platforms than you also tell all your friends and maybe go to our Facebook group and just posted there like someone just today and go to other Facebook groups or go on lengthen posted there. Tell your friends. Tell it on Twitter and just ask everyone basically, and in case you already. I think it's easier if you already know where you want to work, for example, like I said before and the place, for example, you know, I want to go and work in Penn,

"Important as to cover letter what you said before. I think there you make your first impression and there you want to write why you are good for this job and. Also there I would. I think you can include already something like what you what you want to give for the job. What I mean? Like if you, for example, apply for a job, you know, English and German est necessary to speak. And then you only speak German may be like, okay, not not great yet. So you could all already say that you applied for school or you want to go to school, or you would be willing to go to school or something like that. So basically show yourself from the best side and that that counts also Ford, the sea itself. So if it's printed printed on a nice paper and if it's online major, also there are no spelling mistakes, and there there is a nice picture on it and just all must look as perfect as possible. Yeah, I think say and the thing is with this cover letter that's really a chance to. Address your weak spots on try and turn them into strengths. Like I think language is a big issue for experts to try and come. If you're one of the experts who doesn't already speak Swiss languages, good enough, you might think to work in them which as as he said, you know, maybe you speak kind of average Germans really good to say. I'm ready to learn it or more ready learning even better, and then you show in them. I know this is my week spoke, but this is why I'm doing is trying to dry, make it better. And on the other hand, you know. Don't forget that you might think, oh, I only speak English on. I'm rubbish languages. Well, actually, you being a native English speaker is a really useful skill that can't even money combine that's more and more useful. I would say because more and more jobs require English more and more jobs have websites which they want to have translated in English and so on. So I would. And also I would say Swiss half weaknesses. Some do not. We are just point, make sure we're definitely recording. What I want to say is like everyone has strengthened weaknesses. So for for foreigners, it's just different strengthened weaknesses. I just have to emphasize your strengths and don't be shy to to put out your strings. Yeah, exactly. And native English speaker that can be extremely. So even if they haven't specifically said why they need, they probably got native English speaker needs. Like I found her in the left of its, but they don't advertise can use. You just smile at me since I said that Swiss have also weakness. I just want. Don't blind. You cover your never get a job. I've never said that. Okay. Keep going. Thinking of wit knowledge of a specific coach can be very useful. Don't mention that the Swiss have weaknesses, but if you come from India, for example, use that as a strength, because that's the biggest thing that you have somebody else. They can't learn as well as you can. As you know it, you live it and hopefully you're applying for a job where you can really use that on that will help that goes from a to set. So look for a job that maybe requires your specific skill and then in Europe -plication and you know, emphasize it in your job interview emphasize it, and then soon you're here. I think the one last thing dimension in this sort of how to overcome certain challenges. The experts face in looking for a job at can also be an issue of qualifications. Maybe your qualifications isn't recognized here, so I would spend a bit of time looking up. Maybe you can find out what the equivalence is and if you call it the -cations onto in English or Swiss language than I would say, get them translated get an official translation for them because you might have an amazing qualification. But if it's in a language that the person doesn't speak, they weren't knowing that when they read it is straightforward. That's really important as what I said before. I think your CV is so important that everything is as perfect as possible and explain what things are in your CV. You might know what whatever organization is in your country, but someone Switzerland, we'll have never heard of it. Don't know what I said.

"It only takes like, hey, said, right. You told you this is a giant mystery to me. I think what what he what he brings up is an interesting topic that the weather forecast in Switzerland is not extremely accurate sometimes because, well, that's a discussion point. I'd say very good, but it all depends on your perspective. Doesn't it? Yeah, it's true. So I think it's very difficult to have the local better because we have so many mountains. So many lakes and so many rivers where all the wind and everything is is just very difficult to forecast compared to maybe a desert where just everything is the same. So with assets of like a wave of of rain is coming, but it's like small rain spots, and they can't really say, is it exactly at your spot gonna rain, not except except if it's gonna rain all over Switzerland. It's coming at four AM or whatever. So yeah, that that's quite difficult to tell. And that's why they split. Also, the weather usually end the weather forecast in these parts like southern Switzerland, northern Switzerland, and all. And also we also have with. We call it the planes. Yeah, flat part of the country. So middle. Exactly. So usually tease these parts are always a bit different weather and then the all, obviously it's cooler and more often rain, for example. And in the summertime you, it's very often that in the evening, it's come, maybe a storm thunderstorm bit of rain and compared to in winter where indulge the weather is is made specially from the peace influences lots of the wetter. So the bees applause await the clouds and the new half very often in the Alps, blue sky and lower down, and Banu might have a bit of focus on especially closer to the lakes you were. We'll have very often four days. Throughout February and so on. You will have Faulk from the from the lake, but in the absence, very nice sweater. That's that's why in winter, many people from lower Switzerland, go skiing or hiking or something to get out of the of the amounts. Yeah, exactly. And then they see the cl- seek clouds. What do you call it? The Nabal man Nabal marriage translates as a folk see basically when you high up in the mountains and you can look down on just see clouds covering areas. Sure. Most, I've seen it from a plane for example. Exactly. Yeah, that's a bit specialties I would say. So if you are trying to look up the weather where you're going for the day, for example, or you just want to Vegas dare what's going to be happening where you are. There's a couple of different weather apps bring various different advantages. And I think the most commonly used on is Mateer Swiss. That's the weather forecasting from Switzerland. And they have an episode which is quite useful and that app, you can have a look on the wetter map. So you can scroll along the time line like half an hour back over twelve hours in advance, and you see the rain is coming when roughly where and so on. So you can gifts you're quite good idea. And the also you have a Poland for. Cost pollen forecast, so you can see what kind of pollen is going to be strong on which day and wear in particular. So in cool. Yeah. And then you have to ask Saddam asset. I've met you also. Then you can watch the TV program again or something. I see that you can watch the weather forecast you fame if you mentioned and also it's very detailed. Yeah, it's also very good.

"switzerland" Discussed on Swiss and Chips

"This is Swiss on chips. You'll British guy to Switzerland. I'm welcome to cisa chips. I'm Jay. I'm c. one city. And today we're going to be talking about the weather in Switzerland because it's absolutely scorcher outside. It's really hot, really hot and also really hot inside. We should say, yeah, it's like. A bit more than thirty degrees outside, and we try everything to keep the heat. We certainly do before we dive right in, maybe want to give a quick overview what we're going to talk today, what the topics. So like you said, we want to talk about. When is the best time to come and visit. And if you just come for a short trip to Switzerland. What else are we going to talk about? General things since Richland about the weather, the weather forecasts, the different Parsons Westerlund where the weather is how and so on and some apps that you might want to download or which is which our recommendation would be for for weather app for Switzerland. I think that's that's the rough outline. Exactly. Yeah. And I often found that when people coming to visit me here in Switzerland, the question with all ways, what's the weather going to be like and what should I bring? Yeah, that's very. And it's always been a difficult question to answer, and also they always ask, when is the best time to visit? Isn't it? That's why we also ask our Facebook group and long Twitter, we asked them, yeah. What? What do our listeners thing when the best time is to visit? Yep, exactly. And if you want to in our Facebook group, check it out. It's good Switzerland for English speakers, and we'd love to see you in that and how people answered the question on Twitter. Lay said that their favorite time to visit Switzerland was in winter. However, somewhat surprisingly to some of us in this room. The favorite answer on Facebook was spring, which I personally voted for. Yeah, spring was also the the worst. I mean, the had the least votes on Twitter has to be said, it's not like thousands of votes, just like we just sort of tested the water. Yeah, and there are quite a few comments in quite a discussion on Facebook. What what did they say? A few people said that winter is really the best time to come because of sort of cozy walks with amazing mountain scenes Steph wrote, we'll say the best hot chocolate in the world can go, whoa, interior nijus- said that the mountains of snow scenes and Christmas market. So some of his favor. Things. Hence, he voted for winter. That's my dad. By the way, we should say. You could see that in the Facebook group. But Richard Wright and said that he voted for summer as that's his most recent experience. But he's also visited winter a few times in his talented. I'm going to really like to come again. However, I think this is a common problem with people from England. You know, it's really, really code here and lots of people don't want to come to Switzerland when it so code and less they're coming for skiing. Yeah. Then you want them to be also maybe depends where you come from. You don't have all the proper clothes and so on. Yeah, exactly. But Richard has a really, really nice comment here, and here's a big fan. So. Richard. Yeah. What else do we have? Oh, I'm one person will, right. That's a trick question which I think is a really good answer because obviously, all seasons and Switzerland's are really nice. So it's quite hard to cheese between. And finally, Eric also right. He's only being here in spring and mostly summer. So I guess that's why he answered spring all summer. And he did also say apart from a horrible heat wave during the summer, happily loved by seasons. All for us to be said..
