Col de Joux Plane: Cycle Up and Cross-Country Ski

This has become one of my favourite annual traditions – the 5th straight year. Bike up one of the great climbs of the north French Alps and cross-country ski at the summit. It’s surprising that they often keep the famous Samoëns side of Col de Joux Plane open in winter. But it gets lots of sun and the cross-country skiing at the summit is beautiful. The Morzine side of Joux Plane will be closed probably until May. It’s a ski slope. Fermé? Don’t believe every sign you read: I always w...

Neuroendocrine tumors: Choosing the best treatment

An increasing number of anti-cancer drugs are made available each year. During the authorization process, these drugs usually undergo comparisons to one, but rarely to multiple established drugs, leading to a lack of comparisons between therapies. Researchers at the Universities of Basel, Bern and Geneva and at the University Hospitals of Geneva and Bern have compared all drugs used in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors to guide physicians through all available treatment options.

VW Dune Buggy Concept: Where EVs & The 1960s Meet

VW’s concept is inspired by the American buggies from the 1960s and ‘70s. This modern Dune Buggy showcases the flexibility of VW’s latest EV platform. It doesn’t look like a production version is comming but we won’t give up hope. When I first saw the pictures of the VW Dune Buggy, I thought it was a prop for some upcoming sci-fi movie. Tron II – Electric Tron-a-Loo or something. But no, VW is serious. Or as serious as you can be with a show car. Which is what the Dune Buggy is. You’ll be able...
