The problem with open borders is that they make it easy for the perpetrators of war crimes to chase their victims across borders. It is for this reason that refugee camps are placed at least 20, if not 200 kilometres away from the border.

When the risk of contagion increases too much nations bordering countries at war close their borders. Angela Merkel and Germany have made the mistake of being too open as a result of which "A failed Syrian asylum seeker has blown himself up".

Interventionism has been given a bad reputation but it is better to stop a war than let people get displaced for years or even decades. 
A failed Syrian asylum seeker blows himself up and injures 12 other people with a backpack bomb near a festival in the south German town of Ansbach.

As a young Adult I loved going to music festivals and I even volunteered to work for them to get free entrance. As a rock climbing adult who had to get up at 6am to pick someone up before driving to the mountains yesterday I really suffered from sleep deprivation.

The music festival stopped making noise at 3am and I had to be up at 6am to drive people. From Tuesday to today I have been unable to get a full night's sleep and yesterday I was in a daze.

This morning I was smiling spontaneously, knowing that this evening I would get a full night of sleep. I also really wanted to write this blog post.

I want music festival sound engineers to design sound so that it is heard within the music festival without preventing the locals from sleeping.

Rock climbers and sports enthusiasts like to wake early to enjoy the cooler moments of the day. Their enjoyment of the day is negatively influenced by music festival sound gremlins (engineers) flooding the countryside with noise. 
Music festivals could be seen as a form of psychological torture when they prevent us from moving around freely and sleeping.

There were 3,192 alleged hate crimes reported between 16-30 June this year and a further 3,001 reports between 1 and 14 July - equivalent to more than 200 every day, updated figures show 
More than 6,000 hate crimes have been reported to police in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in the wake of the EU referendum, figures show.

“None can be separated from the other. There cannot be freedom of movement of goods, free movement of capital, free movement of services if there isn’t a free movement of people … It will be a choice facing the UK – remain in the single market and then assume the free movement that goes with it or to have another status.”

How many times do British politicians need to hear this before they understand? They're bloody stubborn.

I would argue that the current status is "nuissance". ;-)

Céline Pina, ex-élue PS qui s'est fait connaître en dénonçant le salon de "la femme musulmane" de Pontoise, pointe dans son livre "Silence coupable" le déni de la classe politique face à la progression rampante du salafisme. Celle qui a été adjointe à la mairie de Jouy-le-Moutier (Val-d'Oise) et conseillère régionale d'Ile-de-France dénonce aujourd'hui le clientélisme qui voit des élus locaux pactiser avec les islamistes, au mépris de la laïcité...

I love watching people who are better climbers than me. As I watch them I learn new techniques and new ways of tackling a problem. I was in Villars last week to watch these climbers. The event is over but you can still learn new techniques by watching videos on demand. 
Rock Climbing and live distribution are relatively new. The sport is popular but most people see it as a sport you enjoy in person. Watching it is new.

Xenophobia and isolationism should be a painful and unpleasant experience. :-D. The more BREXIT British suffer the more justification the rest of Europe has for staying united. :-D
Stressed border staff “cannot cope” with the number of people arriving at Heathrow Airport for passport checks, it has been claimed. A Border Force whistleblower told the BBC that problems had been caused by long-term sickness and a lack of time to thoroughly check documents due to huge queues. The employee said: "We are being crucified. There is a high percentage of long term sick due to stress. "We are being pushed completely and we cannot cope...

Le simple fait « d'encourager les activités » de ces organisations terroristes est puni d'une peine pouvant aller jusqu'à cinq ans d'emprisonnement. Or, l'enquête a pu démontrer qu'Ahmed, né en Suisse dans une famille libanaise d'origine modeste, a eu des contacts réguliers avec l'organisation terroriste pendant huit mois. Pour rejoindre Daech, il est entré en relation avec un passeur à la frontière turco-syrienne et il s'est procuré un billet d'avion. « Toute intention de vouloir rejoindre un groupe de combattants en Syrie revient à les soutenir, même sans organisation concrète d'action (…)

I like that Switzerland takes this approach. :-). If you have the intention to murder people for months in a row you can be arrested and sent to prison.

Another day, another blog post. This time I practiced climbing photography. 
Climbing photography is an interest of mine. With the number of via ferrata I have explored and the recent focus on rock climbing it makes sense to progress

This year the Moléson Via Ferrata by night event takes place on the 13th of August. The event is free but you need to inform the tourism board that you are participating. An e-mail or phone call will be enough. I signed up two or three times but was unable to go due to work, weather and a prior commitment. Maybe this year will be different. 
The Moléson Via Ferrata by night event will be on the 13th of August 2016. This is a formal event for people to climb the via ferrata by night.

A great place for an entrecote. You can have 90 grams, 180 grams or the big portion but I forgot how much it is. The sauce that comes with the meat is good and the meat is served in two helpings. As a result of this the turn around time is quick. This restaurant is located just a few minutes from the centre and has both indoor and outdoor seating.

When I go to the mountains I almost always go for the activities and sports rather than to shop and do other activities. This resort is not ideal for people who go to the mountains to do the activities that I usually enjoy.

If it's Sunday and you forgot to shop in Switzerland you can drive here and find a selection of products that will tide you until the next day. They have what you would expect from such a shop. There is enough space to park.

It has a large meeting room on the ground floor and a multitude of smaller rooms spread across several floors. There is one lift but you might have to walk up and down stairs if you do not plan the visit well.
