Gun politics in Switzerland

Gun politics in Switzerland are unique in Europe. The vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 30 are conscripted into the militia and undergo military training, including weapons training. The personal weapons of the militia are kept at home as part of the military obligations; Switzerland thus has one of the highest militia gun ownership rates in the world.[1] In recent times a minority of political opposition has expressed a desire for tighter gun regulations.[2] A referendum in February 2011 rejected stricter gun control.[3] Army-issued arms and ammunition collection success[edit] The Swiss army has long been a militia trained and structured to rapidly respond against foreign aggression.

In October 2007, the Swiss Federal Council decided that the distribution of ammunition to soldiers shall stop and that all previously issued ammo shall be returned. Number of guns in circulation[edit] Buying guns[edit] Carrying guns[edit]

Www.ch.ch - Welcome to the Swiss Portal of the federal government, the cantons and the communes - Switzerland's Official Web Portal. Herbert W. Kapitzki. David Lamothe from AREA17 suggested me to talk about this very interesting german designer : Herbert W. Kapitzki , a former student of Willi Baumeister , conceived and designed exhibitions for the state industrial inspection board (Landesgewerbeamt) in Stuttgart in the 1950s and the early 1960s. He developed a distinct language of forms modelled on constructive forerunners, and campaigned for the popularisation of functional graphic design. His own groundbreaking work was exemplary in this respect. When Olt Aicher asked him to teach at the Academy of Design in Ulm, where he remained until the closing of the school in 1968, he already possessed mature creative solutions and precise concepts of modern information design. The interdisciplinary discussions about actual and future ways of communication of the Stuttgart ‘group 56′ inspired Herbert Kapitzki.

After suffering a long and severe disease, Herbert passed away on Friday 22 April 2005 at the age of 80. (source : AGI ) www.kapitzki.de.

At the train station of the Bernina Pass, we enter on the path that skirts the white lake and goes alongside the tracks of the famous red train of Bernina.

Livigno Switzerland - Bernina Pass - Lake Palù - Cavaglia

After about twenty minutes we cross the dam of the same lake and descend a few tens of meters before a climb that takes us to the refuge Sassal Masone with its typical “trulli” and its splendid view of the peak of Palù and the waterfall below. From here we descend toward the station of Alp Grum of the Bernina train and we continue downhill to the Alpe Palu and its beautiful lake. The scenery is like a postcard ...! After a snack,with a lunchbox or at a farm nearby , you continue to descend toward the station Cavaglia little further, where you can visit the "pots", the characteristics cylindrical holes dug into the rock by the water flowing under the ice that had covered the valley during the last great ice age. Return to the Bernina Pass is done on the famous red train of Bernina.

Switzerland's Expat Community. Everything You Don’t Need And Can’t Live Without. In English, terms like into attic sales, flea markets, secondhand, garage sales, car boot sales, all mean cheap prices on used stuff.

Everything You Don’t Need And Can’t Live Without

In French, terms like brasserie, vides greniers, marche aux puces, brocantes, all mean about the same thing. In 1754, Carouge, just beyond Geneva’s city limits, was granted to Victor Amideus, King of Sardinia. It became a refuge for Catholics, less puritanical Protestants, and even Jews. Its streets are laid on a grid pattern with lots of trees and planters. The city has low Mediterranean style buildings and interior courtyard gardens. Some people have a problem with buying or using people’s old stuff. We don’t have children, but I wanted to buy some of the toys anyway.

I think these sales are great places to pick up unusual souvenirs. I got a couple of Swiss army knives, a couple of old champagne buckets (to use as planters on my balcony), a leather purse big enough to hold my giant camera (super cute for summer), and a Sherlock Holmes book (in French).

Women in Switzerland are having fewer children

Provisional population figures released by the Federal Statistics Office on Thursday showed the fertility rate had decreased from 1.54 children per woman in 2010, to 1.49 in 2011. Fabienne Rausa of the office’s demography and migration section told the Swiss News Agency that the fall was the result of fewer births among foreign nationals in Switzerland, with the rate falling from 1.9 children born compared with 1.75 in 2010. Swiss fertility rates remained stable at 1.42. Mothers were older too, with an average age of 31.4 compared with 31.2 in 2010.

Région du Léman (regionduleman) P2P investigations now illegal in Switzerland. Switzerland, a longtime haven for all kinds of financial shenanigans, has just expanded its reputation for "discretion" to cover file-sharing as well.

P2P investigations now illegal in Switzerland

That's the conclusion of Logistep AG, anyway, as a Swiss court has just gutted its P2P surveillance business with a ruling that says gathering even publicly available information is illegal. Logistep has operated in Switzerland since 2004, doing what all of these firms do: trolling BitTorrent sites for movies, music, or software, then connecting to swarms and logging the information of everyone offering the file. Bits of the file are downloaded as proof that these aren't simply "mistitled" files, and information like IP address, file hash value, and time of day are recorded in a giant spreadsheet.

Content providers who rely on Logistep can take this information and submit it to local courts, seeking to identify and then sue individual file-swappers. In a press release issued yesterday, Thür praised the court's decision. Brown Cow.... The Swiss Search Engine - search.ch.
