Swiss Town Denies Passport To Vegan For Being “Too Annoying”

Nancy Holten, 42, was born in Holland. At age eight she moved to Switzerland with her family, whom she has been calling home for 34 years. With her children, Holten lives in a small Swiss village Gipf-Oberfrick, speaks fluent German. Her daughters are Swiss citizens, and she is a member of the parental board at school.

Nevertheless, Holten's recently was
rejected Swiss passport application for “annoying” locals. For the second time.

Reason? In Switzerland, requests for citizenship are processed not at federal level, but at the level of cantons and smaller regions, and acquaintances of those who want to obtain citizenship have a stake in deciding whether citizenship will be obtained. And, unfortunately for Nancy Holten, her acquaintances are not generous enough to "give" her the passport.  
 
Because no matter how long she lives in Switzerland, Holten - a vegan who propagates her lifestyle to all mouths - also stood against one of the most favorite cultural customs in Switzerland: the practice of putting large balls around the cow neck for ritual and practical reasons.
Ms Holten, who describes herself as a freelance journalist, model and drama student, has also campaigned against a number of other Swiss traditions like hunting, pig race...
 
Tanja Suter, president of the local Swiss People’s Party, said that Holten should not be a Swiss national “if she annoys us and doesn’t respect our traditions,” adding that she has a “big mouth.”
 
Two years ago, Holten's citizenship application was approved by the local authorities, and subsequently refused in a referendum vote. In February last year, a group of people gathered to listen to her case. Some people, while listening to this hearing, loudly disagree.

What will surely not help Holten to get citizenship is her campaign against the ringing of church bells early in the morning (which is another adored Swiss tradition).

Top Tips for Talking to Women

Talking to women can be scary if you aren't used to doing it. It is vital that you are respectful, and that you have the full and willing consent of the woman you are approaching. You should always take care to not interject into her personal time or space. If you want to impress a woman, make sure you are genuinely interested in her and that the interaction is fun for both of you.

Even if you're in the clear and you are fully sure that the woman wants to talk to you, it is normal to still feel slightly nervous. You might say something stupid, or you might be worried about making a joke that is not funny. There are a lot of things that can go wrong.

What if a woman is interested in you until the conversation gets going, and then she is suddenly no longer interested. These scenarios aren't exactly helpful, but they can happen.  With these approaches, you can make sure that you can talk to a woman confidently, and that you won't put them off by saying the wrong thing.

Always Be Genuine

Women and people in general can tell if someone is not being truthful. You won't do yourself any favours if you attempt to come across as someone that you are not, or if you try to 'fill a role' that you think they want. It really pays off to be genuine and honest. You should mean what you say, and let who you are truly shine through.

Honesty Helps You Both

Honesty is a must. Approach the conversation as a way of finding out if you gel. A relationship that is built on lies won't last, so it's better to be truthful from day one. Being honest will make it easier to keep the conversation going and for both of you to have fun. If you lie, and things go well, you risk being caught out later. If you wish to get used to talking to women then try these phone chat lines for men.

Be Interested in Her

A good conversationalist will have a two-way conversation. Ask her about herself, but keep to safe topics. Ask her what she does, and what she likes, not how much money she makes, or whether she lives alone. If a conversation seems one side, try to turn it into a two-way dialogue. If she isn't receptive, then don't push it. You might make her feel uncomfortable or seem like you are prying too much and that could put her off.

Be Nice, But Not Over the Top

It is nice to compliment someone, but if you go overboard it can come across as creepy. Some physical compliments/compliments on a person's appearance can be nice, but it's not something you should do straight away. Compliments on other topics are nice too. Work up to something like complimenting a person's hairstyle if you think that they will take it well, but make sure that there is a good rapport before you start going all-in on the compliments.

Try to Make Eye Contact

Making eye contact with someone when you are talking to them is a good way of showing confidence and building a connection. Don't stare at a woman's chest or mouth, and try not to stare into your drink either. Look into their eyes, or let your eyes flit around the upper part of the face rather than staring. Be engaged and interested at all times. That will go a long way towards making a connection with the woman that you are talking to.

Don't be scared to talk to women. Try to make a goal of talking to as many women as possible until you feel comfortable and confident in doing so. Be respectful, and be sure to take "no" for an answer if you get a "no". Don't take it personally, either. There could be any number of reasons someone doesn't want to talk. Just get out there, have fun, and enjoy meeting as many people as possible and getting confident striking up a conversation.

California City Bans Gender-Specific Language From City Code Such as 'manhole' and 'firemen'

Members of the Berkeley City Council in California voted to update their municipal codes with more inclusive language last week. The new regulation will abolish gender-based language, such as "manhole", but these terms replace with gender-neutral alternatives such as "maintenance holes". Man-made will now be “human-made,” “artificial,” or “manufactured.” Manpower will be referred to as “human effort.” Gendered pronouns like “he” and “she” will be replaced by “they” or “them.” Sororities and fraternities will now be called “collegiate Greek system residences.”  




The changes were first proposed by council member Rigel Robinson. "There is power in language," Robinson tweeted after the ordinance was approved. "This is a small move, but it matters."

In March, member of the board Rigel Robinson, who graduated UC Berkeley last year, and the 23-year-old, the youngest member of the City Council, first introduced a decree stating that it is time to change the municipal codex of Berkeley, which sound as though "men are the only ones that exist in entire industries or that men are the only ones on city government”.

“As society and our cultures become more aware about issues of gender identity and gender expression, it's important that our laws reflect that,” Robinson said.

“Women and non-binary people are just as deserving of accurate representation.”


Berkeley is not the first city to change its gender-specific language, while Maine and Washington DC have also taken steps to recognize gender-neutral individuals on driving licenses.

Likewise, in 2017, California became the first state to provide non-binary gender markers on birth certificates.

Chevrolet revealed 2020 C8 Corvette mid-engine Stingray

Chevrolet finally introduced the new, eighth generation of Corvette. New Corvette gets a brand new concept of drive ...

The Corvette C8 has changed the concept. For a long time she had a front engine, and now the aggregate is located in the central part of the car. 

"Corvette has always represented the pinnacle of innovation and boundary-pushing at GM," said GM President Mark Reuss. "The traditional front-engine vehicle reached its limits of performance, necessitating the new layout." 
New Vette did not give up the Stingray label, which means that from the viewpoint of comfort and entertainment, it is still typical Corvette. Nova Vette from 0 to 96 km / h arrives in less than 3 seconds (with the Z51 Performance package). It's driven by an atmospheric 8-cylinder engine, which is now rare in the supercar segment. It's a new generation of SmallBlock LT2, a 6.2-liter unit that develops 495 hp (369 kW) and 637 Nm of torque. Tremec has taken care of the 8-speed transmission. 
The unit with an aluminum block is equipped with a direct fuel injection system with a pressure of 150 bar and a system of automatic shut-off of cylinders. Due to the change in the concept, the cabin was moved 16 inches (42 centimeters) forward. The silhouette of a 4.630 mm long car is inspired by the modern combat aircraft F22 and F35. 
New Vette uses an architecture with a emphasized central tunnel, which combines low mass and high strength. The construction is made of cast aluminum, which is combined with carbon fiber and glass fiber parts. The weight of the car is 1,530 kilograms (1.5 tons).

The New Vette will start producing at Bowling Green at the end of the current year. Price in the United States is expected at the level of the forerunner - about $ 60,000.
