On Wednesday, Switzerland was named 'the best country in the world' for the third year in a row because of factors including its economic and political stability. But we at The Local believe there are plenty of other (more surprising) reasons why the country is so great. Here are just seven of them. So it has happened again: Switzerland has once more been named the 'best country' in the world in the annual Best Countries report – a joint project by digital news service US News & World Report, marketing company Y&R and the Wharton School. Giving their reasons, the people behind the survey-based ranking cited the usual suspects like the country's enticing tax rates and its excellent public health and education systems. Bur while there is no denying factors like these are key in making Switzerland a great place to live, we at The Local believe there are plenty of other reasons why Switzerland deserves the "best country" crown. Here we take a (sometimes … [Read more...] about The REAL reasons why Switzerland is the best country in the world

Many believe the phenomena described here to be real. What do you believe? —- Begin thought experiment —- Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft, just pointed out that the political Left has “literally been taken over by evil.” (Source) It turns out he’s more correct than even he might realize. Over the last several years, Leftists have morphed into an irrational, hate-filled violent mob of “Demoncrats” that don’t even resemble conscious human beings. Operating like a zombie swarm of mindless lunatics, they are now taking over entire cities like Portland, Oregon, where even the local police now stand down and allow deranged Left-wing mobs to run the city. Watch this astonishing video where an elderly … [Read more...] about The REAL WAR for the future of humanity: Democrats increasingly possessed by demonic forces that seek the extermination of humanity
The Morandi Bridge in Genoa, part of which collapsed on August 14th. Photo: Handout/ITALIAN POLICE/AFP. The next 20 years could be critical for Italian bridges built out of concrete in the post-war period, experts told The Local. The collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Genoa raises questions about the prospects of Italy's more than one million bridges built out of concrete. Italian dailies have highlighted that 300 major bridges could be at risk of collapse. But an expert who inspects bridges and public infrastructure across the country says those numbers are far too conservative. "There are approximately more than one million bridges longer than three metres in Italy. If even only one per cent, a conservative estimate, are in bad condition, we can estimate that at least a thousand bridges will be in absolute crisis in the next five to twenty years," Settimo Martinello, managing director of 4Emme, a Bolzano-based company that inspects bridges across the Italian … [Read more...] about ‘Thousands of Italian bridges will be in crisis in the next 20 years’

President Trump dug in this week to try and fix some problems caused by his trade policies. First up, twelve billion dollars in assistance to farmers to ease the pain of his tariffs. Then the President made up with the head of the European Union Commission, a group of allies he called his foe just two weeks ago promising to work together for a future trade deal. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We also will resolve the steel and aluminum tariff issues and we will resolve retaliatory tariffs. This was a very big day for free and fair trade. MARGARET BRENNAN: And just in case there was any doubt he tweeted a photo of EU Commission head, Jean-Claude Juncker, kissing him on the cheek saying the EU and U.S. love each other. But the President's biggest triumph on the economic front came Friday, and no surprise he took a victory … [Read more...] about Full transcript: “Face the Nation” on July 29, 2018
