A Swiss Island in the World of Wine

When it comes to wine Switzerland and Russia do, in fact, have something in common. To the outside world neither country is seen as a wine producer, mainly since each exports very little of the wine it produces. The similarities end there, especially since most of the wines produced in Switzerland are dry in style compared with the predominant off‑dry and semi‑sweet style of Russian wines.

Most people associate Switzerland with chocolate and cheese, watches and banks. For those who come to live and work here they are invariably surprised to discover that the country produces wine at all. In global terms Switzerland accounts for just 0.2% of all vineyards and does not even make the top 20 wine‑producing countries. In fact, Russia produces five times as much wine and is the ninth largest producer.

Patrick Huguenin: Pay Attentions to the Signs!

“My mother was a professional iceskater, but she very much enjoyed spending time on yachts. She often told a story about how she studied for the yacht licence exam in the later stages of her pregnancy. The instructor made a comment about her driving, and she replied that if he asked her to repeat the manoeuvre, he would have to deliver the baby right there, on board the boat. It seems to me that some kind of bond was formed in those days between myself and the lake.” Thus begins Patrick Huguenin’s story.

It was probably predestined that Patrick would be a yachtsman, and for the last 15 years he has headed the company Pro‑Sаiling Management Sarl, organizing diverse events on the water.

“One day I understood: I love it. Just look at our lake – it is beautiful! All strong emotions come and go quickly, but my passion developed gradually, and now the water takes up all my time”, Patrick says.

Spy-cells conquer cancer

For several centuries now, humanity has been attempting to fight cancer. The number of times, when a patient’s life is saved despite dire diagnoses, is increasing nowadays. This type of success is achieved through modern day diagnostics, as well as new types of medicine. But, at times, in order to achieve victory one needs other advantages, such as trust from the side of the patient, passion for one’s work and expertise from the doctor’s side. This discourse is about experimental medicine on the basis of scientific research in the sphere of cell therapy.
