In Oensingen, the winter storm in the afternoon carried an entire house roof, while the storm Evi tore an entire roof with it in Oensingen. CANTON POLICE SO On the A1, traffic jams almost every day. BERN. If the motorways are not expanded, there is a regular threat of traffic jams: the Federal Roads Office (Astra) calculated yesterday that without extensions in 2040, regular traffic jams can be expected on around 385 kilometers of the national road network. The Zurich northern bypass and the A1 in Aargau, the A2 around Basel and the A1 in front of Geneva would be particularly stressed (see graphic). One to seven hours of congestion per week would be expected on sections of level 1, on those of level 2 with one to two hours of traffic jam per day and on level 3 with two to four hours of traffic jam per day. An Astra study put the economic congestion damage for 2016 at CHF 761 million. The A1 motorway is the most heavily used. On the Zurich northern bypass, traffic was already jammed on 355 days in 2016, in front of the Gubrist tunnel on 354 days and in the greater Baregg area on 346 days. 20M tracks of the SBB. As a result, a power pole and the power line of the train route were damaged. Since the contact lines on both lanes were affected, several hours of repair work were necessary, said SBB spokesman Reto Schärli. The route was closed until the end of operations. As confirmed by the Solothurn canton police, the blown roof belongs to the army. A gust of wind hit a shelter in the armory. However, it cannot yet be said why the roof could not withstand the load. "Whether it got away because of a structural weakness in the building or because of an extremely strong gust of wind is now being investigated," says Daniel Reist, Head of Communication Defense. Evi not only messed up the traffic in Oensingen. Several streets were impassable due to fallen trees. On the A13 in the canton of St. Gallen, the storm blew a delivery truck and trailer. Record wind speeds of 195 kilometers per hour were measured on the Gornergrat in Zermatt, according to Meteonews.

3 THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2018 / 20MINUTEN.CH Prelude 3 can only be postponed »BERN. The Federal Council declares war on the traffic jam. But critics doubt that the planned expansion will solve the traffic problem. There is a risk of traffic collapse on Swiss motorways: the number of hours of traffic jams has doubled since 2009. The Federal Council now wants to expand the highways at the critical points and invest up to CHF 4 billion. According to Transport Minister Doris Leuthard, the expansion of the Rotsee Buchrain section and the Le Locle bypass are planned in 2019. Later there were larger projects in the regions of Geneva and Bern, Win- Doris Leuthard informed about the expansion of the road network. KEY terthur and Basel planned. To finance this, the gasoline is to become four cents more expensive in 2024. Andreas Burgener, Director of Auto Schweiz, welcomes the plans. "The congestion problem is acute, the extensions cannot be postponed." He hoped that there would be as few objections as possible. As an immediate measure, Burgener also calls on the federal government to open the hard shoulder to traffic at peak times. Carpooling can also help avoid traffic jams. Greens President Regula Rytz is critical: “The traffic jams will at most shift, but new traffic will be generated. The expansion gives an incentive to take the car instead of the train, which again leads to new traffic jams. " Instead, she sees approaches to solving the congestion problem in promoting home offices, car sharing or cheaper public transport. Traffic expert Daniel Müller-Jentsch from Avenir Suisse welcomes the fact that the expansions are taking place where there are the most traffic jams. But the bill is clearly too high: Mobility pricing can prevent many expansions. "If driving at rush hour becomes more expensive, the traffic jams decrease because free capacities are better used at other times." DAW This is what the readers say «I hope it doesn't just stop with announcements» Don Höfi: The roads are urgently needed! You can't leave more vehicles every year, collect the money and then not upgrade the roads. Baselbieter: The amount of cars that has accumulated in the Basel area in recent years has simply become extreme. I hope something will finally happen now. Daisydream: And by 2030, the next expansion would be necessary. No one is interested in whether our environment can tolerate this. Commuter: I hope that it doesn't just stop with announcements. Actually, it all comes too late. The expansion should have been started quickly 15 years ago. Trump's helicopters are already there DÜBENDORF.

7 THURSDAY, 18 JANUARY 2018 / 20MINUTEN.CH Bern / Region 7 Passers-by should let this plastic owl flutter ZOFINGEN. After an unsuccessful fight against rooks, a dummy eagle owl is now being used in Zofingen AG. In order for it to be of any use, passers-by are asked. One city has a problem: the crows leave their droppings on the Zofingen choir square and make a lot of noise. So far the city has used different methods but none of them have helped. An artificial eagle owl in a tree should now ensure that the crows stay away from the square. The rooks are not afraid of a bird of prey sitting quietly. That is why passers-by are now encouraged to pull on a string dangling from the tree so that the eagle owl flaps its wings. "As soon as the crows notice that it's just a plastic bird, the effect is gone," says Heidi Schlosser from the Nature and Landscape Department. She now hopes this method will help. “We already have it with cutting branches, reflecting Heidi Schlosser, Nature and Landscape Department, with the dummy eagle owl. NLA Video: Find out more about the crows problem in Zofingen on animal CDs or trying to make deterrent noises ”, says Schlosser without success. Even more: “The CDs reflected light into the apartments, the noise was annoying and the cutting of branches did not help either. The crows always find a way to build nests. " Numerous curious passers-by have already tested the function of the eagle owl dummy. «I think that's a good idea. Let's see if it brings something, ”says Marietta Schwab (53) from Zofingen.

8 8 Switzerland THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2018 / 20MINUTEN.CH “Switzerland will then become a microplastic waste dump” BERN. The EU plans to ban plastic particles in personal care products. Politicians want Switzerland to follow suit. If you use a peeling while showering, you may wash thousands of small plastic particles into the water cycle. So-called microplastics are harmful to the environment (see box) and end up in water, beer and food such as fish or even honey. The EU is now taking action and wants to limit the use of deliberately added microplastics in products (20 Minuten reported). Microplastic beads magnified 15 times. THOMAS MANI / UNI BASEL That calls Swiss politicians to the scene: Balthasar Glättli (Greens) tried in vain to get a microplastic ban in Switzerland. Now he says: “I will still find my move in parliament a hangover thanks to Facebook INZLINGEN (D). In December, the tomcat Moritz (6 months) disappeared in Inzlingen without a trace. Owner Klaus (35) was desperately looking for him: "We looked for Moritz everywhere." It is thanks to Facebook that Klaus has his Moritz back. Because the six-month tomcat had meanwhile immigrated to Switzerland and was stranded in Gelterkinden, 30 kilometers away, as the Sissacher “Volksstimme” reported. "The tomcat was obtrusively begging for food in front of my balcony door," says Jeanette Hürlimann, who found Moritz. The next day she took Moritz to the vet: "Unfortunately, Moritz couldn't find any chip data, so we couldn't find the owner." Then she started a search on Facebook. After five days, someone responded to the Facebook call. That same evening Klaus was able to hug his darling again. "He had a little shock and didn't leave the house for two days."

" There are safe substitutes such as wax. "Nobody has to do without their peeling." Felix Müri (SVP), on the other hand, believes that a ban is superfluous and that drinking water is sufficiently filtered. The Federal Council also says that a ban on microplastics is not necessary. Nevertheless, the federal government wants to seek discussion together with the private sector and encourage voluntary renunciation. As soon as the EU authorities publish a regulation proposal, the federal government wants to So dangerous is microplastic BERN. The federal government has already detected microplastics in Swiss lakes and the Rhone. How harmful the small plastic particles are to the environment and health has not yet been conclusively clarified. According to Greenpeace, it is questionable that the particles are not biodegraded and that they are already contaminated with pollutants during production. Marine animals would eat the particles and absorb the toxins. In addition, the microplastics cause injuries and inflammation and make the animals feel hungry so that they would no longer absorb important nutrients. THE department for the environment is reviewing this for Switzerland in order to guarantee a “comparably high level of protection” and to avoid trade barriers. THE / DK Naturalization is made easier BERN. Third generation young foreigners will soon be able to apply for naturalization more easily. That was what the people decided last year.

According to the "Bund", the Federal Customs Administration currently registers 498 producers, in 2017 there were only five. "The competition on the market has become very fierce," says Deni Milanovic from the Green Passion Shop in Zurich. Shops with a well thought-out concept would survive. "There were many buyers and hobby farmers who thought they could sow something and then pick gold." In addition, there are no customers who only bought CBD once out of curiosity.

12 12 Abroad THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2018 / 20MINUTEN.CH Trump spends a lot of money on a trip to the WEF WASHINGTON. Trump's entourage in Davos will be huge. Air Force One's flight alone costs $ 3.2 million. The expense of US presidents traveling overshadows anything other countries spend on their heads of state traveling. It won't be any different with Donald Trump's trip to the WEF. Several components have an impact on the cost: Presidential machine: Trump will fly in Air Force One. One hour's flight of the machine, which is always used in duplicate, costs dollars. Air Force One is contributing $ 3.2 million to the Davos trip. Security: When traveling, Donald Trump boarded the presidential plane, Air Force One. AP need US presidents to protect themselves from a small army. During the last WEF visit in 2000, Bill Clinton accompanied 1,500 people. Trump is unlikely to get by with fewer people. Everyone needs shelter and food. Other means of transport: The eight ministers, who have also been ordered to Davos, each have their own aircraft, which, however, cost significantly less than Air Force One. There are also transport aircraft, including those for special vehicles. Helicopters are used for transport between the airport and Davos. However, exact figures on expenditure are not available, and information on previous presidential trips is rarely given. Comparisons help here to estimate the order of magnitude. Bill Clinton's most expensive trip, during which he also visited Switzerland in March 2000, cost 50 million dollars. The cost of Trump's week-long trip to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Europe in May 2017 is likely to have been between $ 70 million and $ 120 million. The journey to Davos is less than half as long and has only one destination. Roughly, it will cost between $ 10 million and $ 40 million. SUT Missing was buried in the garden bed WULFSDORF. Andrea L.

POLICE DEPARTMENT LÜBECK H&M boy had to curb STOCKHOLM. The family of the boy, who had posed for H&M in the "Monkey" sweater, had to move, as his mother Terry Mango told the BBC. The reason are "security concerns". She did not elaborate on that, but the protests in South Africa, in which dark-skinned activists devastated several H&M branches, did play a role. In addition, she was attacked by other blacks, so Mango: "For them I am a traitor." But she doesn't see any racism in advertising: “I respect the opinion of others and know that racism is a big problem. But is the sweater racist? Not for me." NK

Now even Rome has to intervene. 20 seconds New President BARCELONA.Catalonia's parliament has elected Roger Torrent from the left-wing nationalist party ERC as president of the region's new parliament. The 38-year-old now has to decide whether Carles Puigdemont can also be elected regional president in absentia. SDA The Neapolitans have had enough: with a massive protest yesterday they called for an end to the violence in the city. Naples has long been fighting child gangs with so-called baby gangs who steal passers-by, beat up the homeless and deal with drugs. Young people complain that they no longer venture out of the house in the evening, writes «La Repubblica». In the past few weeks the situation has gotten out of hand. On Friday, a 15-year-old was attacked by a dozen minors and seriously injured for no apparent reason. The local authorities seemed powerless, now Rome is stepping in: Interior Minister Marco Minniti traveled to the city on Tuesday. The gangs "acted with terrorist methods," he said. He immediately sent a hundred policemen to Naples. ADVERTISEMENT The neglected gang members are often the sons of Camorra bosses. Photos of gang members recently appeared on Facebook. One shows a boy with a pistol (it is unclear whether it is real), two others hold baseball bats in their hands. The children are between nine and twelve years old. Most of the gang members are the sons of captured Camorra bosses. They grow up neglected in the poor suburbs of Naples and are now trying to take over their fathers' territory. They hardly have any prospects for the future. KLE New Conversations BERLIN. Germany and Turkey have resumed government talks that were suspended in the dispute. Representatives from both countries met in the German Ministry of the Interior. A government spokesman said that they have common interests, especially when it comes to counter-terrorism.

If you are not tied to a fixed location, you can work from anywhere in the world using a computer. Moving the office to where others go on vacation is a dream for many. But not every popular holiday destination is also suitable for digital nomads. A ranking by the Home platform shows the best places for so-called remote working (see table). In addition to sights, living costs, diversity and coworking offices are also decisive. Because unlike normal travelers, digital nomads need reliable, fast internet and have to be able to rent a workstation in an office at short notice. The price for a caffè latte was also taken into account: the cheapest in Rio for 1.58 francs. ISH TOP 5 WORLDWIDE 1. Bali 5.00 * 2. Penang 4.62 3. Gran Canaria 4.35 4. Buenos Aires 4.20 5.

Musicians and label people want to get to the bottom of this question at a special SMA event, just one of the twelve Swiss Music Awards given to Swiss artists went to a woman. Otherwise: all men. The same can be seen in the charts and in the line-ups of clubs and festivals. “We noticed that for a long time,” says SMA organizer Oliver Rosa (44). That is why he and his team are organizing an evening on November 7th, two days before the Swiss Music Awards, in the Zurich Kosmos on the question: "Does Swiss pop music have a problem for women?" At the first of the two panels, musicians (some of them are already commenting on the topic in the boxes) discuss their everyday working life Baby-Zoff with Kim and Kylie? LOS ANGELES. On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian, 37, and Kanye West, 44, announced the birth of their third child.

La Nefera (29), rapper La Nefera was the only woman next to around 80 men to take part in the Virus Bounce Cypher rapper summit in 2017. “I've heard so often that I could be more successful if I dressed more freely and acted differently. That says a lot about the image that the woman supposedly has to correspond to. If there were more decision-makers in management, for example, would it be like that? And is that really what consumers want? " Justin's new palm? LOS ANGELES. Yesterday Justin Bieber (23) shared a photo of him hugging a palm tree. He writes: "Now I know what love is."

He thought that I didn't belong, that I was just a groupie and that I wanted to sneak in. There is probably no bad intent behind this, but such things are often lacking in awareness. " Reena Thelly (33), presenter (also at the event) The SRF Virus presenter wonders what kind of artist the Swiss would like to see or hear: "If an artist who pretends to be Beyoncé would have any success in Switzerland ? Do you want this here? Do you want someone who has power and works with her sexyness? I am interested in such questions. On the one hand, women like that attract our audience, but we don't have any relevant stars from Switzerland. Why?" Christa de Carouge (81). KEYSTONE Farewell to a fashion icon ZURICH.

18 18 Auto Show in Detroit THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2018 / 20MINUTEN.CH Asians dominate Detroit DETROIT. The Americans are listless for once at the Detroit Auto Show. In return, the Asians step into the breach. After the Bits and Bytes Parade at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, the auto industry has landed in the here and now. In Detroit, sheet metal, steel and horsepower are once again more important than connectivity or autonomous driving. The Americans in particular are very down-to-earth. It is not for nothing that two of the three best-selling pick-ups on the US market, the Chevrolet Silverado and the Ram1500, are basking in the premiere light. In addition, only the Ford Mustang Bullitt with 475 hp provides a little US glamor, and Jeep is finally giving the Cherokee a new face. Rustic pick-ups and off-road vehicles in abundance and lots of staid limousines (the Americans love them) but cars with a bit more fun and finesse or a hint to the future have to be looked for a little longer in Detroit this time. And then finds it with the Asians. LAB Hyundai Veloster The next generation of the compact athlete is rolling out in the USA with up to 275 hp. The Enverge study by Chinese manufacturer GAC Motor steals the show from US brands in Detroit. KEY Lexus LF-1 Limitless The noble show car will soon become the new luxury SUV RX, which is also enjoying success with us. Infiniti Q Inspiration The concept car shows the future of Infiniti design. And that makes you want more. Much more! Nissan X-Motion Concept The oversubscribed study has what it takes to become the successor to the X-Terra, which is so successful in the USA. Toyota FT-4X The Japanese could become a small lifestyle all-wheel drive that wants the Jeep Wrangler to the leather.
