Hello, in my opinion, the fate of the earth is controlled by human hands and can hardly be stopped? Those who want to survive are having a hard time, and for some species, harder than ever. The clock's been ticking way too long and nobody's listening? Not only do numerous peoples of the world suffer, nature and those who want to survive suffer as well. One way or another: So there is a question of ignorance when we follow developments?
Shortcomings from decades cannot simply be "repaired". I am reminded of "Soylent Green" by the ubiquitous scenario of the present time.
Hope dies last?
My headache, the wind, the clouds suggest rain. All that's missing is that it comes down as extremely as it did a few years ago. Then we have here a huge flood thanks to the dry ground. I should actually now bring a few things that I don't want anymore down to the cellar
I was clearly born much too early and in the wrong canton. Those who have registered for the entrance examination to the Gymnasium, FMS and professional matura BM1 can enter without an examination with a 12 month probationary period. Corona also has something good - for people who always mess up on exams.
Also those who obtained at least a grade of 5.0 in the final apprenticeship examination for the professional matura BM2.
In Zurich, all entrance examinations used to be pure horror. One who failed, whose father died of a heart attack and had a large life insurance policy, sent his mother to St. Gallen for the entrance examination, where he took the best entrance examination at the teacher's seminar. That says enough!
The question remains: Where will they get so many places if all the registered participants are admitted?
The cinemas in Solothurn have now set up a streaming portal. Cinema from Solothurn in your apartment. Will this do any good when there's Netflix? But maybe there are enough people who are willing to solidarity.
The Stream99 flat rate subscription costs CHF 9 per month after the free trial period and offers ad-free access to the site and bonus material for all streaming films in addition to two new long and one short film per week.
The locals are already showing solidarity. But unfortunately there are fewer and fewer of them. That's why shops in the city keep closing, because there are fewer and fewer buyers. Because there are less and less locals and more and more foreigners who don't shop in the small town but go to the more distant shopping centres. When I started my apprenticeship here, the city was always extremely crowded. Nothing compared to today.
In summer it was full of Japanese and Chinese. On the last day they came to the terrace outside the hotel for a last drink. They left all the coins lying around - this left an abnormally high tip each time. In addition, I was forced to learn a lot of English, even if Asian
. That's probably why in 2010, as the only one in the office, I had no problems understanding the nervous Chinese woman.
Today we had a cardboard box collection. You wouldn't believe the things people threw in the box. Because there were extreme mountains of cardboard in the subfield, the poor collectors were quite stressed anyway. As a result, everything that was not allowed is lying on the ground before the containers. A very clever one distributed his black filling material at the farmer's place at the edge of the field. All along the road.
You can see the mentality of the people and all the consequences Corona brings with it.
Actually I should have photographed all this yesterday and today. I felt so bad, I'd completely forgotten. It would have been the photo of the month in the newspapers. One no longer felt like in Switzerland.
Because it became known that the Federal Council will start supplying supermarkets with masks sold at cost price on Monday, Aldi started selling its stock of masks for its staff to customers yesterday.
On TV you could see that already 1 hour before the opening of the shop people were waiting. After 1 hour, all 50 pieces packs were sold out. Now there are only packs of 10 pieces for just 7.20.
People are still hoarding - now the masks. That although you rarely meet anybody wearing a mask on the streets. Every 5 days you meet 1 single person with a mask.
The pharmacists were outraged that they are not allowed to sell these masks but the supermarkets and have already officially objected. They also said that one had to explain to people how to put on the masks correctly.
But they are not completely wrong. With my new glasses it is extremely difficult. I cannot put on the hearing aids anymore.
The first masks my husband bought for me in the drugstore were extreme. Extra thick, five of 9 francs each (packet of 5). Yesterday I wanted to go to the store and would have needed mask, because I had an even stronger cold. But they smelled extremely, gave me shortness of breath. I took it off again and stayed at home. At least the cheap ones don't smell. I just wonder how anyone can put up with those thick, smelly things. But they'd fit better than the skinny cheap ones. The new ones are much too big around the ears, do not really fit. It's best if you sew them yourself. But unfortunately I don't have a sewing machine anymore.
