Peacefull, quiet, majesty wordless the place of Montreux is great
Last night at 2:30 I heard a big noise. It was the police. I was sleeping and didn’t understand what happend. He said that the dog was outside and was crying.
The dog was inside quiet. Strange. I realise that maybe a neighbour alert the police agains me. Actually the dog was outisde but only for 15 mn between 9:30 and 10:00 pm.
I was angry to be awake by the police for such things. It was really suspicious. Here in Switzerland surveillance is done by neighbour. If you are not good with them they could alert the police for really little thing.
ON NOVEMBER 27, SWISS VOTERS WILL DECIDE WHETHER TO TURN OFF THE COUNTRY’S NUCLEAR POWER STATIONS AFTER 45 YEARS OF ACTIVITY. BUT WHAT DOES DISMANTLING A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT INVOLVE? WHAT ARE THE DIFFICULTIES? SWISSINFO.CH LOOKS AT THE EXAMPLE OF MÜHLEBERG.
BANNING CONSTRUCTION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS AND LIMITING TO 45 YEARS THE USE OF EXISTING ONES: THAT’S WHAT A PEOPLE’S INITIATIVE FROM THE GREEN PARTY, TO BE VOTED ON IN NOVEMBER, PROPOSES. IT HAS NOT BEEN ENDORSED BY THE CABINET OR BY PARLIAMENT.
Dismantling the Mühleberg nuclear power station will generate around 200,000 tonnes of waste. Most of the material will be decontaminated directly in situ and recycled or disposed of in appropriate landfills.
The whole operation should finish around 2034
In Switzerland, nuclear energy is used exclusively for peaceful purposes: the production of electricity and applications in the sectors of medicine, industry and research.
In 2015, the country’s five power plants produced 22.1 terawatts of electricity (33.5% of the national total). Currently, Beznau I is closed after small cracks were spotted in the containment structure.
Globally, there are 447 nuclear reactors used for commercial purposes in 31 countries (as of September 2016). Most are in the US (100), France (58), Japan (43), Russia (36) and China (34). In total, they produce 11.5% of global electricity.
Switzerland soon have to vote to stop nuclear power soon or later. I will vote soon. Because atom electricity is very dangerous.
Recently I moved to a house where an old electric heater was already existing. That heater does not work well and I planed to changed it. After a long period of time receiving offers, I decided to change it. Gaz was the decision. But first I have to ask the gaz company. Someone came and make me an offer. Second the PPE. PPE is a kind of community between people. They decide for you and you have to pay. You pay for things you don’t need and when you need something they decide for you. The procedure is king complicated like french administration. The administrator was informed that I needed to change my heater and ask me for apointment with technical commission. But I have no idea how to do that. Finaly I decided to go forward for the project.
Workers came and start the gaz connexion. The second day they stopt working. How will have I heater in winter ?
You have so many contacts that you don’t know how to react. All contacts are against you. They don’t want you have heater but you must keep your old electric heater that does not work well and that cost too much.
Life is like a stream like a river. You get problems. For example you get 3 problems this month but you don’t know how to solve it. You can solve one problem. The next month you get 4 problems and get solution for 2 problems. At the end you make a burn out and you don’t know what to do how to do and why you do all you are doing.
Each appartment or house is like contries, PPE is European Union. They decide for you. They give you rules you have to follow. If you don’t understand every body are again you. Like Britain today. EU is kind of dictatorship. PPE is the same.
I just added an new blog of a friend in the blogroll. I hope he will add this site in return. He is british missionary in France and share daily live for his support group. Interesting how he see french culture.
This year, I don’t have the choice. I have to take my holiday in August. Bad luck. Prices are hight. People are stressed. But let’s go to Spain in Pineda de Mar.
According to Google, 8 to 9 hours could be enought to join the destination place. In fact we took 10 to 11 hours. You must take motorway if you need to cross France. And that motorways are very expensive. We paid between 50 to 60 euros fron Geneva to Spain. And on the french motorway you only have machines. A machine gave you a ticket and a machine ask you to pay.
Pineda de Mar is situated at the Costa Brava near Barcelona at the mediteranean sea. We can speak catalan and spanish. People understand quite good french and english.
Holidays are oportunities to simply do nothing. But we must do something : organise what to do.During this time we have luxury to bet bored. We can think about lot of things. What happend during the last year. The first days my mind was empty. Usualy during the year I am overbooked.
The hotel was not the best quite place. Although not very cheap, the level of phonic isolation was very poor. We could hear the music from outside. In the room we could hear the swiming pool, toilet of the neighbourgh, people walking etc…
Fortunately in Pineda de Mar in Spain we can live outdoors.
One curiosity is this huge tree in the middle of a street near the beach.
Illa fantasia is water parc but I don’t recommend it. It is small and we can do all attractions in one hour. Additionaly the water is very cold.
During the afternoon, the city is very quite. People should snooze. But on evening between 9pm and midningh lot of people are outside. Families with babies, children riding bicile or searching pokemons. Youth drinking at cafes or simply walking.
Otherwise after few days my skin did adjust on the sun without major problems thank to sun cream and shadows. I have an impression of warth that keeps even on evening or during the night. Swiming in the sea is very pleasant. It is like therapy and motivation comes back. Inspiration comes back too.
