The Dogma of Swiss CVs and bias
In Switzerland the standard CV puts race, age and gender up front. A photo is also expected. Quite rightly, people often comment that this leads to bias, either deliberate or unwitting prejudice.
Expected on Swiss CVs
Date of birth
Is this all dogma or does this requirement for unnecessary information have any justification?
This leads to people being deselect based on race, age, sex and nationally regardless to this competencies. It encourages racism, sexism and xenophobia.
I believe that it leads to automatic deselection and helps support unfair treatment.
Photo is not relevant
Age is not relevant
Gender is not relevant
Skills, experience, employment record, qualifications are.significant.

Swiss cultural behavior regarding sex
So a couple of months ago I was studying in Lausanne,Switzerland. Im from mexico currently in high school and when i was there i had just turned 18.
I was just there for a month because i got returned cause of covid but when i was there in one of my night outs i met this lovely girl. we continued talking and one day she invited me to her house to sleep i was very exited, but for my surprise her whole family was there and like they knew i was staying the night with her daughter, it was a great night and when i woke up i was invited to stay for breakfast i was like really nervous because well i literally had just slept with his daughter but he seemed so unbothered by it. afterwards the dad offered me a lift but i ended up just taking the train.
Is that normal in Switzerland or was i just too lucky?
in mexico it is really frowned upon sleeping with someone especially if their whole family is going to know about it so i had that doubt.

Swiss (moto)-Bikers: Why does it has to be loud?
Apparently today was a demo against a petition for a upper noise limit for motor bikes. What is the problem with that?
Please explain why your hobby must be so loud to annoy everyone around you? Nothing against biking around, it's great and I like it myself as well. but there are enough alternatives with normal noise levels, so what is the issue.

Discussion: Thoughts on Swiss after the first weekend?
Most people seem generally happy with how this new format has been playing out so far, with a few people thinking it won't actually reward consistency (even though every team has only played on a single day so far). How do you think things will pan out as RLCS X goes on?
I believe the best teams will rise to the top with the formats in place, and if a team you wanted to get through don't in the end, then well, they just aren't as good as you hoped for.

How can I infuse Swiss meringue buttercream with earl grey?
Edit: Since Swiss meringue seems difficult to infuse, would it be possible to flavour it by making Italian meringue buttercream? I’m thinking of steeping some earl grey tea bags in hot water, measuring it out, and using it to make the sugar syrup. Would that work?
