«Every winter, beekeepers from every corner of the United States descend on California to pollinate almonds. Almonds have a window of about two weeks for pollination to occur. Otherwise, the blossoms won’t turn into fruit. The demand is so high it takes upwards of two million hives, almost every commercial beehive in the country to do the job. “This is the largest managed pollination event on earth,” explains John Miller … .»

Swiss banks are to start charging their super-rich clients to look after their piles of cash.

Greenland’s ice sheet shrunk more in past month than in average year, experts warn

The frozen extremities of the northern hemisphere are melting at a near-record rate as heatwaves buffet the Arctic, forest fires tear through Siberia and glaciers retreat on Greenland fjords and Alpine peaks.

Unusually high temperatures are eating into ice sheets that used to be solid throughout the year, according to glaciologists, who warn this is both an amplifying cause and effect of man-made climate disruption across the globe.

The Swiss town of Vevey has staged a once-in-a-generation celebration of its winemakers, with fancy dress, alpine horns, cows and dancers kicking off a festival that dates back to the 18th century. The three-week Fête des Vignerons, which began in 1797, is held roughly every 20 years and on Thursday 5,500 locals donned costumes, wigs and makeup to take part in the gala opening

Pair attempt to reach summit but are intercepted by police and told to turn back

Two Swiss mountaineers landed a small plane less than 400 metres from the summit of Mont Blanc before heading for the top of Europe’s tallest peak with police in pursuit.

The pair landed the aircraft 4,450 metres (14,600 feet) up the mountain in the French Alps on Tuesday in an incident described as a “provocation” by Eric Fournier, the mayor of the nearby Chamonix resort.

The 67th Bilderberg Meeting is taking place in Montreux,Switzerland from 30 May,2 June 2019,where the about 130 invitees,so far confirmed,from 23 countries,are staying at one of Switzerland’s most luxurious venues,the Montreux Palace hotel.About a quarter of the attendees are women.
The Bilderberg meetings started at the onset of the Cold War,as a discussion club of American and European leaders,a fortification against communism,in clear text,against the Soviet Union.The first event took place in 1954 at the Bilderberg hotel in the Dutch town of Oosterbeek.Ever since,meetings of the Bilderberg Group were held annually,in different locations in the western world, most of them,though,in North America.
It’s not a coincidence that the Bilderbergers meet in Switzerland. Switzerland is one of the Group’s favored host country outside the US. Switzerland hosted their gatherings at least five times before this upcoming Montreux event (1960,Palace Hotel, Bürgenstock;1970,Grand Hotel Quellenhof,Bad Ragaz, St. Gallen;1981,Palace Hotel,Bürgenstock;1995,

I love the story Kropotkin told of when they were in Switzerland, (though him and Bakunin never met). Some young men were talking disrespectfully about the young women.

One of the older women said, “I wish Mikhail was here to hear you talk like that” and the young men shut up.

Kropotkin remarked it was the only time he ever heard an Anarchist theoretician being trotted as out as the authority. ^^

It seems to me that such a formulation swaps the victims and rapists.
I would add that marxist ideology was designed by German-born Karl Marx and Marxist USSR was ruled by Western agents:

Voters sign off on firearms reforms which the government said was crucial to maintain treaties with EU. #Switzerland #EuropeanUnion #Europe #Guncontrol
Supporters of greater restrictions say Swiss rules need to line up with EU’s

Swiss voters are casting ballots in a referendum to decide whether to enact new restrictions on guns and line up with other countries in the European visa-free travel zone who have tightened rules following extremist attacks.

The proposal could require regular training in the use of firearms, special waivers for possession of some semi-automatic weapons and serial-numbering of major parts of some guns to help track them.

In footage reportedly shot in London last summer during a dinner with far-right European nationalists, Mr Bannon said Breitbart was in “tough financial shape” after seeing advertising revenues plummet "90 per cent".

He credited the slump to work done by campaign group Sleeping Giants, which pressures companies into cutting ties with media it deems to be racist or sexist.

Operation Libero’s clever campaigns aim to tackle a climate of fear and pessimism

How do you beat rightwing populists? With pink socks, viral videos, condoms – and an iron determination not to let them decide what matters.

That’s how Operation Libero are doing it anyway.
