Investments to Fight Financial Repression

"A couple of weeks ago on August fourth the US tenure treasury bond hit an all time low yield. Zero Point Five, two percent. It's a little higher than that. Now about zero point six, four percent. Yet. If we look at an equal weighted composite of ten year government bonds that includes Canada the euro-zone Japan, Switzerland the UK and the US. That composite interest rate is zero point three percent. If. We include corporate bonds and mortgage backed securities. The Global Aggregate Bond Yield is zero point eight percent in all time low. Now those are nominal yields that supposedly take into account that potential flation, but those rates are lower than what inflation has been over the past few years. Treasury inflation protected securities have a negative yield. That's the real yield. The tenure tip is yielding negative one percent. Global. Central banks have set their interest rates at all time low a composite of banks. The average short term policy rate is one point three, five percent. That's down from two point four percent in July twenty. Most developed countries have set their policy rate at zero. As investors if we are not able to generate a return that is greater than inflation, then our investments lose purchasing power over time. If central banks are implementing policies to keep interest rates low. Policies that benefit debtors borrowers because they can borrow cheap at the expense of savers that aren't able to earn even the rate of inflation on their savings. That is what is known as financial repression, its policies by central banks that hold down borrowing costs. These can be traditional monetary policy tools such as setting the short term policy rate. or it could be unconventional monetary policy such as quantitative easing central banks, purchase government bonds, or other bonds in order to put downward pressure on interest rates because they're constantly buying bonds. It could be yield curve control stating that they will buy as many bonds as possible to keep longer term rates low. It could be what the Federal Reserve indicate that they might do more explicit forward guidance in their June that are open market committee meeting. The minute said that it will be important in coming months for the. To provide greater clarity, regarding the likely path of the federal funds rate and asset purchases and that a number of the participants in favor of forward guidance tied to inflation outcomes that could possibly entail a modest temporary overshooting of the two percent target. What does that mean? The Federal Reserve has a target for inflation of two percent. They set their sights term policy rate, which is known as the federal funds rate at a level that they believe that unemployment will stay low but not too low that discharge to put pressure on wages and potentially inflation. And at a level that's low enough that households and businesses want to borrow to buy things to invest in capital projects to help the economy grow. But they're saying that they'll keep that policy rate low even if inflation exceeds the two percent target for time so that the average inflation rate is about two percent. The most recent inflation rate in the US was zero point six percent. If we exclude food and energy inflation rate was one point two percent that was through the end of June twenty twenty.

Production of nitric oxide, which defends the body and especially the tissues against oxidative damage and prevents erectile dysfunction in men, and also another benefit is the increase assocation of stem cells which have the unique capacity to differentiate into worship. Any kind of cell in your body, which has major implications for healing and longevity. So these Russian scientists discover amazing benefits of brief intimate hype box. Here I know it's a lawful, but they were busy trying to replicate this in their elite athletes and perform us, and they will literally Dick these high-performance athletes on helicopters to high altitudes where there is less oxygen they created these hypo Barak.

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

"Holly say what's up to fire nation and sure. So the interesting about yourself that most people don't know hey John Hey fire nation thank you so much for having me. So excited for this. So I'm really curious to know what your response is going to be to this game. We have men peasant, but the one thing that a lot of people don't know about me is I actually have a blue belt in taekwondo. I actually wish that I had no before because you know sometimes i. Go a little overboard on my teasing and I'm kind of picturing the time. War where I was kind of making fun of a little bit like you could have kicked. My Butt. Yeah just watch out John. Luckily, we are now half a world away from each other. So even a blue belt, I'm feeling a little safe, but that is something I did not know about you. But yes, fire nation Hollywood part of an incredible mastermind, the kate knife through about six months ago it was awesome to welcome her and some other amazing entrepreneurs to the lovely island of Puerto Rico and specifically Palmist Mar I got to learn A. Lot about what she has going on, and that's why I'm fired up fire nation for you to hear from. Holly today. We're GONNA talk about how to hit six figures with a list of six hundred and tell you right now holly somebody who does more with what she has almost anybody I know and I love that about her. So Holly, let's break this down a little bit. You've had an unconventional start in entrepreneurship. Breakdown for fire nation how did you first begin your Biz Show? The reality is I didn't actually set out to start my business in the beginning it just became the only way I could actually do I want it. So my business background is as a marketing and brand strategist I walked almost a decade for leading fortune five hundred companies in the fast moving consumer goods industry, which basically just means multimillion billion dollar global brands such as Gillette pantene shampoo bus perfume, and one of your favorites, Jon Benet, Jerry's ice cream. So, that was kind of my weld and I always in my most recent role, there is leading a two hundred million dollar brand portfolio whereas basically just tossed with how do I grow this brand in that market? How do I execute on amazing media campaigns get to know my consumers so that was that was the world I knew and on paper I was successful I got the absolute dream role that I could possibly have wanted ahead a view of the mountains in Switzerland bring out of his window. And then Ireland never forget this. Awful moment when I was having dinner with friends of a pizza unwind and I had this mind numbing thought that I guess I'll just be happy when I'm retired. Like Oh, I'm in my mid twenties that's quite a long way. Years. Away. That's like twice as long as you've been alive. Exactly. Exactly. So that was kind of like something for me to finally attention to and the reality was I've been really bent out for quite a period of time I'd got caught up in. Comparison Trabzon. Myself in fast-moving corporate space and I was massive perfectionist which did not help so I kind of went through that somewhat obligatory quarter life crisis that we all seem to experience today's in there. And that really ignited. I kind of Ray into Paseo development I'd never been exposed to anything to pass on development up until that moment when I realized I need a way to calm the flip down and so my first thing was I'm going to go to a meditation colas and then I became an P. Practitioner and then I certified as courage and it just kind of my obsession grew as I implemented all the things I was learning that will having literally life changing impact on me. So when I moved from London to Sydney a few. Years later I was like I want to do more of this because it's so amazing I'm going to try and get a job in eight Shaw Orlando Development and it's going to be amazing. I have these qualifications. I'm so passionate enthusiastic and bear in mind I just moved to the other side of the world with zero networks. No one knew my name and I'm going to recruitment agents saying, Hey, this is what I can do like yet. That's not going to happen because you'll see visas marketing and everyone gave crap that I. Wanted to ECHINACEA it was really soul destroying and I was just banging my head against a brick wall time and time and time again, and then I recognize that honestly the only way could explore this New Passion for coaching and personal. Development and see how I could support people in similar quarter live crises was to start my own business. So I the very unconventional step of actually negotiating a pot time senior marketing role in which five hundred company that gave me one precious day to just my Tories in the water. Of, what could be if I took this further over time? I was then to grow my business I negotiated two days a week on that with three days in my corporate role, and then I went on maternity leave to have my daughter and today I'm three days a week in my business around her. So it was a very a out of the way to do it, and as probably not the same story that a lot of other people have. But since that moment I've had people ask me how did he do that? And so that was what started everything off and today I. Am so grateful and so blessed I didn't just. You know accept that Acadia get nine to five just put his dreams draw. We'll come back to Atlanta but I, really followed that banning fi and my belly and I found a way to make it happen because today I have all the flexibility I could possibly want around my daughter while doing the work

How I Built Resilience: Taha Bawa of Goodwall

"Hey, everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during such a disruptive time and today we're GonNa hear from Ta the CO founder of Good Wall Good Wall is a social network that connects high school and college graduates with jobs and scholarships. Today Good Wall has raised over sixteen million dollars with more than a million users on the platform I. Spoke with Taha, from his company headquarters in Switzerland where he gave me a rundown of goodwill's mission for people who've never heard of goodwill just tell us how how does it work? It's essentially a mobile platform that's designed for the next generation. We started off with high school students helping them build up their first profile showcase themselves in a way that I'm accentuates their extracurricular activities in particular, connect them to opportunities mostly scholarships in colleges and all. This happens within a positive and supportive community. Over time, we've grown with our members into the college and young professional space. Our whole goal is to level the playing field, maximize the potential of as many people as possible. So it's been compared to linked in is that a fair comparison I? Think there are similarities however, we're really focused on on our part, which is this next generation starting as early as sixty and guiding them through almost Sherpa in. Them through the future of earning learning and those opportunities. There are various features that we have that they don't, and we're really focus from a user experience perspective, and then from a community perspective, it's it's very different posts don't work here. You wouldn't find students talking about being on the chess team being on the robotics team being on etc etc on goodwill mean if you are, let's say eighteen years old and you're interested in applying to college. What does it look like you go to? While you create a profile for yourself and and then what you're going to goodwill, you help yourself our initial early adopters were mostly international school students who maybe didn't have as much guidance as others or since the US who maybe didn't have as much guidance from their parents from college counselors it come on. Here's he would other people are doing they'd be matched with colleges and universities and. Also. With scholarships based on their data on their profiles and then they'd be able to connect with like minded youth. So we had this girl based out of Jordan who was really into robotics science and unfortunately no one really around her who had that those similar interests and she was able to find others like her in the US connected Internet. NASA did incredible things afterwards actually many of our students have gone bound exclusive opportunities at. Like Oxford and others that we've partnered with an. Super fulfilling perspective. Yeah. It's really caused US checking it out last night and it's it's a little bit like if you didn't have a mentor or a guidance counselor like here you go. Yeah definitely I think a lot of early adopters were privileged in the sense that they had a lot of ambition and maybe they went to good schools. But over time we've especially with last year we've really. Put a lot of effort and a lot of energy towards helping youth who are maybe a little under privileged that privilege is actually not necessarily one hundred percent linked to financial situation but it can be for example, we're doing now with UNICEF death and other organizations in Africa for example, is running programs they are and were really helping you bring out their ideas, build up their confidence show who they. are in connect opportunities and it's been really really fulfilling and we expect to do more underrepresented communities in the US. For example, we're doing more and more there. That's where the biggest room impact is. At the end of the day, we are a social enterprise and it's very fulfilling to help youth who go to elite schools and connect them to lead universities and colleges, but it's even more fulfilling. Even more important for us to step in where the impact Delta's the biggest for, for example, youth in Africa who insert African countries that just don't have any exposure don't have opportunity. Don't have the guidance but do have access to a phone and can has result go through. So we're really trying to do more there in particular and are you started this company in two thousand fourteen with your brother? Where did the idea come from? So my it was my brothers idea both of us were born in Switzerland we lived in Iran the US came back to Switzerland. Our parents used to work in the humanitarian sector. My father worked for or Serb refugees around thirty years, and we experienced a lot growing up. We was like quite a contradiction going skiing on the weekend in in a very affluent privileged, no bubble in Switzerland whereas at the same time, we'd go in summer vacation and give candy out to refugee kids who are age your ten eleven and that that really did shake US quite a bit in throughout our upbringing we realized that we are. We are I'm here not because I'm smart but because I was lucky osborne that could have been born two doors down in that, my life would have been very different and I'm confident because of the experiences I had rather than because I'm innately able to do so and that's really what pushed us to say we were lucky in this sense what would happen if we were able to give those opportunities in terms of particularly experiences. So education is one thing traditional education is one thing but particularly experiences to millions of youth around the world what would happen how can we change things and that's where we thought it has to be mobile first it has. To be a digital solution and it has to be able to tackle millions and we wanted to go a step further. We said it's good to maximize one's potential but hopefully, we can do that in a win. We're very idealistic in that sense in a way that it maximizes or improved society as well or impacts society positively, which is our mission statement that if we have enough people that are exposed to not only improving themselves but as so often it's a form of education knowing what's out there if I hadn't gone to refugee camps or if I didn't have the background where my parents are Richard from Sri Lanka, would I really be so inclined to How this positive impact who knows I did have that chance I view that as an opportunity to give those opportunities in showcase through volunteering through being aware through connecting to people from different backgrounds. Hopefully, we can move the world forward I. Think it's needed now more than ever, right? Yeah. For Sure Tyler, the business for a second I think you've got around fifty employees the world you've got offices in Switzerland, the US Germany Serbia the Philippines mean you're growing you've got presumably some cash runway but these are tough economic times. I mean Lincoln just laid off a thousand people, their record numbers of people in the US for unemployment. So first of all. How is your revenue been in your business been impacted by the global economic slowdown? Yeah. I mean when it happens I think the first week where we started notice he was getting really serious I. Remember it. The first thing we did was we we had a board meeting and we talked about, okay what's our cash situation and let's make sure we get through this are along a be while maintaining the team for two reasons. One is like you don't want. Downward debt spiral. But also because we have the opportunity to have real impacting this time if we make the changes in adapt effectively, but we won't be able to do so if we don't have the team to do it so we've actually hired over the past few months and we've actually grown over the past few months and we've adapted to do. So the first week was really about scenario planning getting through that after that, we assume the worst but we. Ourselves decided. Well, there's definitely GONNA be less demand for recruitment is definitely less hires which hurts us which hurts our users or are members and we said, okay how can we can we help because if they come on in the no jobs? Well, it's a very bad experience, but it's also it's hurting us. So what we did was we put we put together this program better together and other challenges where youth can develop work experience at the end of it. They get certificates that show that they've accomplished these different challenges participated in it, and at the end, it can be used as work experience towards all of our partner companies. So it's actually giving them something to do some hope, and at the same time, this is generating revenue for us as one example of revenue for us. Another example is just before the crisis a part of our model is we work with large partners and a couple of these large partnership so. Leading recruitment than leading education routes, stunts or came to a halt. And then I don't know if this is despite coverted or because of covid other opportunities came about we've now partnered over the course of Kobe with market leaders in markets that we are not present in or were very marginally presents and he's actually allowing us to take up extra market share and grow in more significant way to timber onwards. Let. Let me ask you about the demographic that you target. Right I mean and I'm Gonna I'M GONNA use this term Gen Z.. Always cringe when I say because I remember like when I was in my twenties and people talked about Gen-x and their slackers and I would just cringe and you're older people talk about Gen xers and I was like, what are you talking about but just just to make this kind of simple we'll we'll just say Gen Z.. So if you're Gen Z. I'm sorry it's annoying I know. This is a really challenging economic moment if you are in high school now and you're going into college or if you're in college, there's a pretty good chance. You'RE GONNA GRADUATE INTO A world with very few jobs. You know a world that we haven't seen certainly since two, thousand, eight, nine and ten but maybe far far more challenging than that. What's your sense I mean? What do you think I mean do do you think that's that's actually true that that is likely to be the case for the next three, four, five years or more. Yeah, I think whether or not we go through a deep recession with mass unemployment particularly for the Youth USA next three four five years very probable that US at least in the short run or to suffer they're normally the last to be hired the first to be fired and that's justified for various reasons including ethical. Oh, they have less commitments than, for example, someone with kids, but it is incredibly difficult and the mental toil of, let's say an eighteen year old doesn't know what's coming up next we need to be able to be resilient and we need to be able to learn how to learn and adapt because we just don't know what's going to happen. So they could be a second. Downturn there could be a third downturn. It could be sustained downturns and US like across society but in particular for the youth they we have an opportunity they have an opportunity to take this and say, okay, it doesn't kill me. It might make me stronger and I can learn from this develop that resilience that five, six, ten years from now I'm able to deal with the next crisis in a more in a stronger way because I'm going to have to do that and some of the skills that need to be developed in my in my opinion or entrepreneurial thinking that ability to be flexible and resilient we we need to do more though the on just the the these massive stimulus packages and. Is trying to do whatever they can for sure this generation needs the government needs to intervene to be able to organizations needs to be able to intervene to support them to the best of their abilities in terms of developing skills and able to resilient. When we come back in just a moment, I'll talk with Taha about college graduates who will probably face a shrinking job market over the next few years stay with us. I'm Guy Roz and you're listening to how I built this resilience edition from NPR. For this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age aws dot org. Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition despite the economic slowdown tie and his company good wall have been able to grow their team and stay afloat. But as jobs are drying up across the globe. Many college graduates are looking for opportunities and can't find any if you're like in your early twenties now and you're looking for an opportunity and you can't find one. What would you recommend a young person? Do Who's who's graduating college is just entering the workforce and is kind of trying out different potential career pass. Is it a good time to just steer clear of the workforce for a while and get some more education which in the US means more debts? What do you think? Yeah, I think. Definitely, trying is important, but this might just be an opportunity to start your own thing. You know a lot of great companies came out of the last crisis because they just couldn't find jobs or that opportunity just wasn't there for your. So maybe start one's own thing. It's never been easier to start a business. It's never been easier to try something new. So if even. If it doesn't work. That's incredible work experience. You know when we talk to HR owes of some of the leading companies in the world, what are they looking for or what were they looking for before the crisis indefinitely after is that ability to be entrepreneurial even if you're working for fortune five hundred, so it can't hurt best case scenario you build something. Amazing. Worst case scenario. Fail and you take those skills and you leverage those skills and you keep your mind active. It's so important from a mental health perspective, keep your mind active and then apply them when the market comes back, which will at one point another opportunity. If if maybe starting yourself isn't it join some friends or join or reach out to small startups definitely volunteer is an opportunity. There are a lot of NGOs are nonprofits that need help or need support right now, build up your work experience gained some experience concrete tangible work experience that differentiates further rather than just having eight twelve months in your resume which are empty. Unfortunately, it might not help financial side and that's where that's where one has to be creative and it's it's just really tough and that's What does the government intervention on that front need to be because there's some that just can't afford to do what I just said, which is volunteer or build your own company because they don't have that safety net that don't have that opportunity in and unfortunately there in we're almost out of ideas because he go back to college, you just talked about extra debt but for some unfortunately are going to have to do it, and that leads to more a more philosophical discussion on what is there so much debt attached to a college education where you know in Switzerland, for example, I paid for my undergraduate I paid around a thousand dollars a year it's a leading edge I mean it's like A. Top universities and so that's a that's another discussion. Yeah. I agree with you I think that this is a moment to be entrepreneurial and it's challenging because you're you're right. I mean not everybody can do that from an employer's perspective you mentioned human resource officers, and by the way you're right I mean a human resource officer is very attracted to an applicant who started a business or try to start up in it failed. Because as you say, that's incredible life and work experience. What are some of the characteristics and sort of ways that quote Unquote Jersey works that might be different from previous generations maybe what their expectations for example? Yeah. It's something that comes up quite often the expectations are are huge I think even if we look at the generation before part of it is there needs to be in there. Always has been this need for grits for determination. I think post Covid, we're going to have very likely incredibly resilient and determined generation I. Think it's it's really great for I mean it's it's very tough. Love going to suffer and I hope I hope it will be as as few as possible but coming out of this generally on the whole, there's good reason to believe that this generation. is going to be really conscious a bit like after World War Two really conscious of financials very conscious sauce how lucky they are how privileged quickly things can change how precarious the society within which we live is actually it's a disease that, yes, it's it's it's it's serious, but it could have been a lot worse. It could have been worse could be one hundred exists and it's brought. Our global economy to its knees and you know we feel like we're often the masters of the universe and that's not just Jeb across demographics and we clearly aren't on I. think a little bit of humidity goes a long way. I love the energy of younger people coming in because their ideas are just so radically different from the way people in my business have have seen their profession What is your advice for employers looking to harness the intellectual power of Gen Z.? Yeah. No, it's a really good question. There basics of management that have been the same for every demographic every every niche within that demographic. It's look at maximizing the potential of the particular individual to different people react differently to different forms of management. Within this can talk about trends, but the ability to give them that chance to express themselves. The need for trust is always been there now definitely, so I mean even more so because they know what they're capable, but then also must not forget they are still with very few years of experience and being able to be there to give feedback to to tell them what they're doing. Right. Tell them what they're doing. Wrong. Both sides is critical. So just leaving someone out there in the world is not going to necessarily need to great results either but giving that safe-space giving that trust and creating an environment of being game your to maximize your potential and the. Direct, order may have worked. They may have been able to get away with it in the past, but some people might be okay with it but generally speaking that's that's especially for for you a lot of potential that's just not conducive for maximizing the potential where do you see your your business and what you're doing in five years from now what do you want it to look like I think for us it's always been about really helping as many youth as possible be as inclusive as we. And so we're ready serving youth in one hundred, fifty countries would like to go deeper in certain areas through our partnerships or load serve more youth in a more significant way. Provide more opportunities just re the best experience. That's probably what's most important. I think that's where we can have where we can make our contribution towards society. That's what we're good at, and now it's just about going to the next level. Yes. It's a challenging period, but we're going to be okay. WE'RE GONNA get out of this, and then it's about really taking this opportunity and doing the best we can because we are in a privileged situation if we were if we were unlucky which is the case for many other start ups I, friends who had term sheets for massive rounds of financing evaporates we hear the stories and then know they're just unlucky. So we're in this lucky position to be able to operate and to be able to do what we're doing. Let's. Make, the most out of it and I think that's our that's kind of our duty and I think that's yeah.

German Consumer Confidence Soars on Virus Stimulus

"Anyone who sort of picked up the press in Austria Switzerland, and of course, Germany yesterday, we saw some interesting indicators maybe as a first sign of just consumer confidence and certainly, and really talking about the confidence of of managers. You know many thousands who were pulled in in Germany and the sense. Anna that Yeah. When when they were being. Pulled last time some six weeks ago. Of course, things weren't looking so good but they're feeling a little bit better and I'm not sure if it's just because it's you know August is fast approaching. But what what is your sense of this and think how much of is it is it is it really? I think linked to the seven, hundred, fifty, billion euros versus if I'm a middle stunned company or I'm traded on the DOC, said I'm just seeing results, I'm seeing business order my orderbook starting to inflate somehow. So I'm wondering what what the measures between the two. Well I. think that there is certainly a some optimism at play here. That is a result, not just of the weather and the August break I think it's the result. Also the positive news around the recent for covering package that EU disagreed on a deal I think we're also seeing some more positive data because we have seen many economies now easing the lockdown so when you compare Compare the data that is going to come out now, it's obviously going to look better to the data that we saw coming out in March, and April, may where countries were still very much in lockdown a due out however, think that's a temporary recite that will soon going to look at an economic much more gloomy than than forecast is currently assume at this point in

Germany aims to reopen borders - what you need to know

"We're going to head across the board or to Germany now a border which opens officially on Monday the country has been praised for its handling of covid nineteen, but Deutschland Inc is immune from the impact of the virus is having on the global economy. So how can major corporations be supported by the government in Berlin I'm joined on the line from points dot in southwestern Germany by Anna Rosenberg irregular, and is the head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy cigdem global. Couldn't talk. Couldn't tack. Very good here for humanity. Oh, no is a great to have you on the program. Literally probably for the last what five or six weeks we've seen one German company after other, and these were really talking about global names that all of our our listeners will will be well aware of companies that touch people's lives Some have seemed to be sailing through this reasonably well, but we've seen of course many others and probably most the most. High. Profile instances is tons of which has been. In the news almost every day for the last two weeks on on business pages around the world, and with a lot of focus right now on major job layoffs that will probably see before their AGM it in the coming weeks. I'm very keen to hear how the story is playing out domestically, though because I think outside of Germany Anna everyone of course is seeing a similar type of story, the relating to how daylights bailouts might occur in Australia or Canada or elsewhere, but I. If we look at the front pages, if we look at what's being, said on the tag, a show how I would say sort of what is the mood and the reception nationally right now? I would say that, of course luther tons is a concern, but it's not the biggest concern I think that the German government has over the past few weeks, a lot of the things right and of course at the moment top of mind for everyone is the recently announced fiscal stimulus package, which is another one hundred thirty billion euros, and to support Jimmy consumers and business, and that's I would say currently preoccupying people's minds business all relief by the measures announced and I think that's overtaken the bad news from Lufthansa. Also you have to keep in mind that. Lufthansa was bailed out. Even though they are still of course, suffering, huge job losses, overall, there are some positive signs, and I would say that. Combined with the opening up of the economy, those all being well received. We've seen a consumer sentiment reports out of Germany as well, and and certainly there was a feeling a little bit early on that. Maybe people's fears were a little bit misplaced still fearful but if you look at the mood now, and whether that is just your read, for from where you're sitting, at of course how your consultant he looks at it. As much is of course what might be popping? Popping up in the pages of Honda's Blot you look at a stimulus right now. There's going to be cash handouts for families and a lot of money for every child. Does this raise the mood? And of course whatever economy looks at is consumer sentiment in terms of getting out onto the High Street shopping filling up grocery baskets. All of those things. Where where would you say the consumer mindset is right now? I think the consumer mindset is cautiously optimistic. Very cautious because I think that, it's not yet quite clear how this crisis will ultimately pan out. There's a realization that Germany is a relative. Winner or let's say not too bad loser from Kobe than other countries it's has. Done more than others in terms of trying to contain the disease, the government has stepped up significant economic measures as I mentioned before so those things at Kohl's obviously provide cause for optimism, and I think the the the money that the government will be handing out for child support another three hundred euros, plus lowering the VAT. All of that will stimulate consumer spending but I think it's too early. You're not going to see suddenly. Suddenly consumers go out and shop like crazy. Ultimately, these still cautious Jim and consumers that going to want to continue to monitor how plays out and I think once there is confidence that things won't get much worse. That's when you're going to see consumers. Step up spending I do expect this to happen over the next few weeks and months, and especially over the summer, because that's also when you just have a pickup optimism generally. Do! You think there's also maybe a patriotism wave, and that's a it's a tricky word in in Germany or at least in some corners at wet, better patriotism when it comes to a head Shelton, Deutsche signed a made a made in Germany feeling. Of course you can go to lots of grocery stores. Local markets and people want to of course singing, the praises of the of the Chicago this Baragan that's grown around the. The Corner, etc, but does that also extend you think elsewhere in in in consumer spending that people are are going to be thinking about jobs in Germany. It might be a little bit more expensive for me to buy that product, but it is made in Germany I. See that it is going to help the state that I live in or the state next door or is going to be driven by WHO's got the best price. It depends on your income. I would say I think that consumers that have a little bit of leeway will make those conscious decisions. They will buy local whenever possible I think. That's a trend that was here before. Kobe ticket buying local, being more environmentally conscious, making sure that your products don't have a very large carbon footprint that was here before and I would expect that consumers that are wealthy enough to afford to make these choices will continue to make these choices, but of course those that are going to be squeezed. They will not be able to. They're going to go for the cheapest option, and there will be quite a few of those as well so I. Think it'll be a mixed mixed back really and just before we go. We just maybe shining a spotlight on Berlin and certainly foreign policy a you and I have touched on. Whether the dock countries Germany Austria Switzerland are are looking to maybe come together a little bit and and show that there is there leadership even though these countries are also very disjointed in many ways, but is there a sense that you Berlin you now? I mean really also being recognized almost daily around. The world is having done a very good job, Switzerland and Austria as well that they. They start to convene big MESSA again. Of course, when when public health obviously issues and public health guidelines allow, because it certainly seems on many other levels Germany is trying to push ahead, but does it see itself as also being a commercial convener sooner rather than later because we've seen so many are still being so I mean I wouldn't say pessimistic, but maybe some would argue in business overly cautious. I think there's a big. Division in terms of the states in Germany about this topic. I would imagine that if you now see. Infection rates stay low over the summer which we expect we, we do think this going to potentially be another wave in the autumn, but if things go more or less smoothly over the summer, it's going to be difficult to continue to extend lockdown measures, and instead people will cool for more openings and eventually also call for mass gatherings, and I think that's what you can see things like larger messy mess, being organized again and large public offerings coming together, but I think we'll still a bit way from this, and I don't expect it necessarily to accelerate in this first half and second half of the year really.

Top Stories From The Balkans

"We're going to get around above stories making news in the Balkans now I'm joined to buy our correspondence in the region at guide to Lauraingraham. Good afternoon to you. You are in the Slovenian capital. What is happening there? While we're opening up a bet here, marcus in fact, as Britain is going in the direction of putting arrivals and quarantine fourteen days, which is caused a great deal of Cathal over there. I'm here in Slovenia it's exactly the opposite. The country's just opened up. To arrivals from fourteen other European countries, and that's ranging from Switzerland to Iceland and Germany the Baltics, and that's in addition to its neighbours, Croatia Hungary and Austria. Restrictions on rivals from those places had already been lifted Italy those going to have to wait for a little while, but probably for about a week longer, and it's very bad news coming from north Macedonia Marcus, it's a compulsory fourteen day quarantine arriving from that, and that's because of a recent increase in a number of covid nineteen cases. Luckily I'm not coming from us. Part of the world's continuing to the neighboring country Croatia. What's making headlines over there now? We'd like railway journey Sony Marcus on Monocle, twenty, four and I. This is warm, which sounds to me? Like a railway journey that that I'd like to make, and it's one from the Czech Republic through to the Croatian coast, and this is being run by the Czech railway operator regular I think you pronounce it regular jet. Should we go with that? And they are running trains that I think we'll go with that the plan anyway as whatever they could they. However you pronounce that they're going to be running night. Trains from the Czech Republic from Prague directly through to the Croatian coast to be precise, the city of the reactor, which is actually one of the European capitals of culture this year, and from they'll be able to get connections to any of your coastal destinations, and this is a big deal. It's a big. Big Deal for people in the Czech Republic because eight hundred thousand of them every year. Go on holiday in Croatia apparently, the the advertising in in the Czech. Republic refers to Croatia as aw coast so quite proprietorial about it. They are number seven in terms of tourist arrivals in Croatia, so it's not an exaggeration, really but it's also a big deal for Croatia. Because twenty percent of their GDP is generated by tourism I'm said they're going to have to. Find ways of getting people from places like the Czech Republic that key tourism markets. If that is salvage any kind of a summer season at all, and this is exactly the when people are talking about corona corridors between countries which have low infection rates of which. Croatia and the Czech Republic A to well I think that A. Colorado, because let's face it this. This trains conjugate three tunnels Marcus that raw appeals to me I in terms of both an elegant solution and the word play, and the fact that it'll. Be a very beautiful train journey. If you can see if it's not to. Dock sounds very promising. Let's continue our tour next to L.. The obeyed and authorities are facing legal action. Tell us more about that. into the on this is over the the controversial demolition of the national. Theatre building in Tirana now. This happened last month. After years of protest in the middle of the night, the early hours of a Sunday morning the authorities just moved in and knocked down the National Theatre. More or less said it's done now. Everybody move on well surprise prize. Everybody hasn't moved on. There's a group which call themselves the Alliance for the protection of the National Theatre well. Maybe they should think about changing their name been the not changing their caused that. filing legal action against a number of municipal officials who were involved with voting to demolish the theater, the also again for the the head of the National Inspectorate for the protection of territory, and it's also been going for civil engineer who said that the the building was not safe, and therefore should be demolished as it's already got one hundred thousand signatures from.

Being vocal.

"Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Magan Show I'm your host and we're going to Warner, and this episode is a mini show, and it's about everything that is going on in the world right now. And by that, I mean the mud, Jewish Lloyd and racism, not just in America, but around the world. If you're a regular listener, this Mayfield coming a little bit out of the blue. Out of left field, maybe because you are probably aware I actively avoid any political debate on the podcast I want everyone to feel all welcome to listen, and so on a couple of occasions on this show when guests have expressed their feelings about the current president for example I've been quick to interject. Something like everyone is welcome because truthfully. I really dislike. The idea of someone listening to my show and feeling they are excluded are not welcome in the conversation. My podcast tends to send to around the topics of beauty, health, wellness and business, which are universally my opinion, therefore I want anyone with an interest in those topics to feel. This is a platform they can enjoy. And what I'm about to say doesn't mean that I now want anyone to feel unwelcome, but I feel it's important that I vocal about what I believe in because. If I've learned anything from last week, it's the silence or being neutral tends to benefit the people i. don't want to support more than it does. The people I do want to support. I have never stated publicly the I anti animal abuse because I believed it was implied I have never stated publicly that I believe abusive and Against Man Woman or child to be wrong. Because I thought it was implied, I have never stated publicly. I am an anti-racist because of my privilege. And a friend said to me earlier this week. If you're genuinely shocked, you really haven't been paying attention. And so it's commitment. Stop paying attention. I have in the past taken this Switzerland neutral position, and in the last week I've had Oxfam myself why why haven't I? Actively had those conversations on this podcast or just indulge them or Become involved, and in all honesty I've narrowed it down to two things. Firstly, I am a coward and I don't want to say anything that might make someone just like me. And secondly I don't feel articulate knowledgeable enough, so I let other people do it for me. To address the former if someone decides, they don't like me all my content. Because of a standby take, then I'm going to be okay with that. To address the latter, it's my responsibility now to become knowledgeable to educate myself so that I can be articulate and contribute positively to the conversations I feel strongly about and stand up for the people. The causes I want to stand up for. I have friends in this industry. Who used that platforms in a way? I M too scared to you and I am learning from their example. This however will take time. I don't believe in Tokenism, click to victim or performance of. Them it's not enough for your protest. Only extend as far as blacked out instagram posts I'm virtue signaling with this episode, or by what I've just said given recent events is really clear. It's not enough anymore to just not be racist to be actively anti-racist. We need to start stepping up and speaking out against racial injustices, and we need to stand up for the basic human rights of our fellow citizens, because it is absolutely the right thing to do. I have never considered the possibility that I was contributing to racism by participating in the conversation. I genuinely thought progress than been made, and that's so wrong of me. So. This episode is me acknowledging are I've been wrong. Admitting the need to do better and letting you know that I am making a commitment to make these changes, so I can be an ally and if there's one thing I've learned from. Four years of doing this podcast is that I am never once been alone in my thoughts and feelings so i. hope that by saying this out loud. You may be feeling similar things, and that will lead to a positive discussion. This episode is imperfect, but I felt it was important to say something I. Am aware that I am going to make mistakes as I learn and educate myself but I would rather mess up and be corrected now so that I can learn then continue to be silent. I would really love to extend this discussion to the facebook group, because that really is social media at its best, and are also wonderful, wonderful contributors and members of that group and I would love the opportunity to learn from year to learn from each other. Right now the way any any one of us can help is by signing petitions donating texting or calling, but what we can continue to do is to educate ourselves because this won't go away once. The topic stops trending and as I said I am committed to. Taking stand learning and I don't mind falling on my face. If it means that I come out of it at better person, he stands up for the things that I believe in.

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.

"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.

"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..
