Aktuelles Nachrichten

Here is a summary of today's top news headlines:
  1. Happy birthday to Jessica Brogan in Neuchâtel!
    Here's wishing you lots of chocolate, cake, and happiness!
  2. French press coffee and espresso raise LDL ("bad") and total cholesterol levels
    What?! Cream, cheese, liverwurst, and now coffee. Living in Switzerland may very well kill me. My only hope is that I can drink enough red wine to offset the effects! Wait... did someone say cirrhosis?
  3. Swiss man gets 10 year jail sentence for graffiti
    Well, not in Switzerland. He had to move all the way to Thailand, and go after posters of the king, before he was caught.
The weather in Basel: Sunny, 57°F, winds from the SW at 10 mph.

You'd think you could counteract all the bad effects cream and coffee with not being able to eat that much meat, but it turns out that it doesn't help that much. My waistline is not happy here.

It's because bread and dairy are practically the only affordable things at the store! Fruits and vegetables - expensive and not always so great. Chicken - expensive. Fish - expensive. Beef - outrageous!
