If you are interested in getting to know us better, just come to our weekly Stammtisch. We meet almost every Thursday evening at the City Garden Hotel in Zug, or at the Parkhotel, when the City Garden is unavailable.

June-July 2018 Although spring had long come and summer is about to start soon, the Editorial is about Springtime, a relic or consequence of publishing the Newsletter every second month. Never mind, spring is always welcome and deserves a mention in the Newsletter. The Past Events calendar is full, reflecting the active work of our Events organiser, Enrico. In April we had a very interesting and thought-provoking presentation by Mr. Cristian Violatti on the fall of civilizations throughout history. Of course one mustn’t fall into the trap of thinking that ours is immune, it may happen before we even realise it. The Spring NMR (New Members Reception) was a great success. Thanks to Enrico again, the Gala Concert at the KKL, Lucerne was another highlight in May. Remo’s contribution this month is about the effects of high protein nutrition and its toxic effects. For a change the Science & Technology article is by Danilo this time, it deals with an often visited subject, namely electric power. Under a new section of History & Civilizations, Cristian Violatti wrote a whole article about the subject of his presentation : The Fall Civilizations. Roger Brooks our ex-President and Webmaster, continued his interesting series of articles on his travels, this time on Vietnam. Sean tells us in his interesting article about the prospects of a direct rail link from Beijing to Vienna. The Sports article by Joseph covers hiking in Switzerland. A good alternative to skiing in the summer. Christian investment commentary gives a good overview of prospects, chances and pitfalls for investment. Last but not least, the Humour section with its crack jokes crowns this bumper issue.
