#Switzerland has the best public transit in the world.” 🇨🇭

That’s what many transport experts told me when I was researching my book #Straphanger.

After 6 weeks of getting to know the country’s network, I’m beginning to think they have a point. Here’s why… 🧵🪡
I'd been to Switzerland a few times before, and was duly impressed with its rail network, and the transit in its larger cities... Image
...esp. #Zurich, with its trams. "There's little reason to travel in an automotive cocoon when, for a fare of only a few francs, an efficient, stately tramway will provide transportation from point A to B at a level of comfort an emperor might have envied."

⚠️ #Nachtzug, wir haben ein Problem!

Immer häufiger höre ich aus der Bubble, dass Nachtzüge ausgebucht sind. Und das oft mehrere Wochen im Voraus. Wie dramatisch ist die Lage wirklich? Und ist es auf allen Strecken gleich?

Ich hab mir das mal angeschaut. Ein Datenanalyse-🧵
🤓 Zur Methodik. Für einen Zeitraum von 30 Tagen (ab heute) habe ich 13 Strecken des @unsereOEBB Nightjet auf freie Liege- und Schlafwagenplätze untersucht. Dabei habe ich mich auf *tägliche* Züge und *eine Richtung* pro Strecke beschränkt. Insgesamt sind das 390 Zugverbindungen.
📊 Und hier seht ihr das Hauptergebnis, aufgeschlüsselt nach Wagenkategorie.

Wichtig: Der graue Balken zeigt an, wann es *überhaupt* noch freie Schlafplätze gibt, egal in welcher Kategorie. Manchmal gibt es nur noch #Liegewagen, manchmal nur noch #Schlafwagen, machmal beides.

Si le cœur des villes est de plus en plus 🌳vert🌳, c’est notamment dû à l’idée de la ville des 15 minutes ...(1/5) Un mile de flânerie au lieu...
C’est à Carlos Moreno que l’on doit l’idée de la ville des 15 minutes. Envoyé spécial villes intelligentes à Paris, il plaide pour que les points de contact importants au quotidien – achats, vie sociale, travail, nature – soient accessibles en 15 min à pied ou en 5 min à🚴..(2/5)
Le professeur Moreno est devenu l’emblème d’un
mouvement qui déplore que depuis le début du 20e siècle, les villes aient été planifiées pour
répondre en premier lieu aux besoins des 🚗 automobilistes...(3/5)

Die Idee der 15-Minuten-🏙️Stadt🏙️ ist u.a. für die
zunehmende 🌳Begrünung 🌳der Innenstädte verantwortlich.. (1/5) Flaniermeile statt Güterzüge: High Line Park, New York | I
Erdacht hat die 15-Minuten-Stadt Prof. Carlos Moreno,
Beauftragter für intelligente Städte in Paris. Die Idee: Alle wichtigen Berührungspunkte
des Alltags – z.B. Einkaufen, soz. Kontakte, Arbeit, Natur – sollen in 15 Minuten zu Fuss oder in 5 Minuten per🚴 erreichbar sein.. (2/5)
Laut @OECD verschlangen Transportinfrastrukturen wie 🚗-Strassen im Jahr 2006 zwischen 25-40 Prozent des öffentlichen Raums in Städten.

Prof. Moreno will diese wieder zum Spazieren, Velofahren und für gemeinschaftliche Aktivitäten zugänglich machen..(3/5)

#soziologie beobachtet und beschreibt das soziale.

was ist das #soziale?
- nicht das biologische
- nicht das psychische

und positiv formuliert?
- kommunikation.

was ist #kommunikation?
- das, was für das biologische LEBEN und für das psychische BEWUSSTSEIN ist.
positiv formuliert?
- kommunikation ist eine 3-fache selektion:
1. information
2. mitteilung
3. verstehen

aber bitte verstehe nicht nur den ausdruck "verstehen" nicht zu rasch:

KOMMUNIKATION KOMMUNIZIERT.

‘Water Salute’ to the Swiss International Airline (SWISS) after landing it’s first flight in #Beirut 🇱🇧 from #Zurich🇨🇭
The #WaterSalute is a touching airport tradition to honor new airline service.
/1
The water salute is a touching airport tradition to honor military veterans, foreign dignitaries and new airline service.
Salutes typically involve two firefighting rigs spraying arcs of water over an arriving or departing flight. It is a sign of respect, honour & gratitude.
/2
the water cannons are positioned carefully, in safe locations, allowing enough space for the plane to pass through. The wind direction is taken into account as well, and the process is coordinated together with Air Traffic Control.

Tras 48 años el Royale Union St Gilloise vuelve a la primera división de Bélgica. En Suiza, el club más ganador del país regresa a la élite: Grasshopper Club Zürich. ¿Qué otros clubes con títulos e historia en primeras divisiones de Europa continúan en el Ascenso? Los repasamos.
Union St Gilloise se fundó en 1897 en el municipio de Forest, uno de los 19 que rodean a Bruselas. Para 1935 el club tenía ganados 11 campeonatos de Bélgica y 2 Copas, además de otros 8 subcampeonatos, lo que lo ubicaba como el club más ganador del país. #RUSG
Incluso entre 1933 y 1935 estuvo 60 partidos invicto, lo cual es un récord en el fútbol de Bélgica. Sin embargo, tras la segunda guerra mundial, el equipo cayó en un pozo irrecuperable. Solo en 1960, tras una buena campaña, llegó a disputar la Copa UEFA y cayó en semifinales.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Fun times, @KantonZuerich has a "superspread" event on its hands from a club night. About 100 party guests left fake email addresses on contact tracing forms.

Pro tip: @eventbrite and other ticketing apps were made for exactly this purpose...🤔

#Switzerland #coronavirus #Zurich
Here's the live-ticker from @NatalieRickli's presser this afternoon describing the event and measures @KantonZuerich is taking (it's in German)

tagesanzeiger.ch/jetzt-informie…
So 200 people are now in quarantine, and the other 100 pranksters – I imagine they left names like Al.Caholic@gmail.com and Sol-T.Balls@yahoo.com on the contact tracing forms – will show up to work tomorrow, go shopping, sit on tram/train without a mask, etc. Fun times!

¿Se puede comprar una casa propia en #Suiza?

Abro hilo explicando como funciona el sistema para comprar una casa propia en #Suiza 👇

Gracias por compartir asi otros conocen Image
Suiza como todo pais estable economicamente ofrece muchas facilidades para comprar una casa propia. Entiendo que solo tenes que tener permiso de residencia (al menos B) pero no estoy 100% seguro de eso.
El permiso B es el que le dan generalmente a personas con pasaporte de UE👇
Mas allá de los permisos las tasas cada vez bajan mas por el contexto global y para fomentar el consumo.
Por menos del 1% anual pueden encontrar creditos a tasa fija por 10 años.
En en.comparis.ch o moneyland.ch/en/ tienen comparadores si les da curiosidad 👇

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites"
kreis-vg.de Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)

One major aspect of #Corbin was his long association from 1949-1978 with the #Eranos Tagungen, a circle of scholars of the human and religious sciences who met at Lago Maggiore near Ascona at the estate of Olga Fröbe-Kapteyn (1881-1962) 1/ Image
In one sense it was a stellar collection of the leading scholars in the humanities of the 20thC but especially of those committed to esotericism - an alternative intellectual history of the period as Hans Hakl puts it books.google.co.uk/books/about/Er… 2/
#Fröbe had long been interested in the occult and archetypes and was a theosophist and spiritualist who ran a salon in #Zurich from 1914 3/

#Swiss government prohibits gatherings of more than five people and decides on 32 bln Sfr in aid measures for business; #Zurich is closing the lakeshore, according to @NZZ (which infuriatingly has its real-time coverage of this behind paywall). #coronavirus #Switzerland
This is NOT a lockdown or even a curfew, but the government is stepping up its rhetoric, saying people should "urgently" stay at home. #coronavirus #Switzerland
.@alain_berset says #Swiss government prefers not to impose a full lockdown, appeals to population to be sensible.

"Our own behavior and not a lockdown is what is going to protect us, he says. "A lot depends on our behavior."

¡Empezamos! Repasemos algunas de las vigas y celosías más comunes.

Todas ellas son de un vano y tienen condiciones de apoyo isostáticas, esto es, un apoyo fijo y otro deslizante.

#estructuras #ingenieria #IngenieriaCivil #CivilEngineering #structures
Si a una de estas vigas (he escogido la celosía Warren) le doy una ligera curvatura, el comportamiento estructural de la misma apenas diferirá de la versión recta. Esto es porque las condiciones de apoyo son isostáticas.
En otras palabras, el momento que solicita a la viga en el centro de luz, el famoso p*l2/8, es el mismo en ambos casos.

Recordad que una viga curva solo activa su comportamiento de arco si ambos apoyos son fijos, lo que no es el caso de la figura.

It is insane how #Zurich is struggling and soul-searching with the idea of allowing restos and bars to stay open an extra two hours on weekends in summer only, in a pilot program (story in German) 1/3
Minirock in Wiedikon shut because of noise complaints, Seefeld's Razzia fighting two residential neighbors for years, Kafi fuer Dich can't host concerts anymore, and Longstreet – LITERALLY A LANGSTRASSE BAR – pays neighbor next door's rent in exchange for no noise complaints.
Bottom line: you can't live in #Zurich and expect a bucolic countryside vibe. If you want quieter areas, try Wollyhood, Witikon, Wipkingen, Hottingen, Hoengg etc. and maybe not Niederdorf or Langstrasse. Otherwise let capitalism be capitalism and let people make their living 3/3
