A BUTLER WITH YOUR REHAB? ÜBER-DELUXE SWISS CENTER CURES ADDICTION FOR SUPER RICH



Küsnacht Practice clients can choose to stay at the five-star Dolder Hotel (above)
Located near Zurich, the upscale Küsnacht Practice has two goals: to treat their clients’ alcohol and drug problems, and make sure the experience is as comfortable as humanly possible. For those with the money to afford it, the establishment can arrange “practically anything.”



By Daniel Fritzsche
TAGES-ANZEIGER/Worldcrunch 
ZOLLIKON -- The fatter the wallet, the bigger the problems. That, anyway, is the impression you get talking to the people who run what is considered Switzerland’s most exclusive rehab facility: The Küsnacht Practice. Jan A. Gerber, the managing director, welcomes us to the establishment’s new premises in Zollikon, another “Gold Coast” commune right next to Küsnacht. Both are lakeside suburbs of Zurich.
Modern art on the walls. Designer furniture. Chic digs: a place for the upper class, for VIPS, although Gerber wrinkles his nose at the terms. “Higher earners are our target public,” he says. “VIPs sounds disparaging.”
The Küsnacht Practice made headlines last June when the free newspaper “20 Minuten” speculated that British fashion designer John Galliano may have completed a two-month rehab stint there. According to the paper, Galliano was purported to have spent one million Swiss francs ($1.05 million) for service said to have included a private jet, helicopter, chauffeur, cook, and security.
Gerber isn’t saying if the rumor is true or not: “We don’t talk about our customers.” What he does say is that clients come from far and wide and many of them have already been to the world’s most expensive rehab clinics. Some, he adds, had nearly given up hope of ever being healed.
The Küsnacht Practice can not only help, says Gerber, it can meet every requirement of people used to luxury. “We can organize practically anything,” he says, smiling.
Priorities: comfort and discretion
Patients are not treated in groups, but on an individual basis – in poshly appointed apartments in Küsnacht and the surrounding area. If a guest prefers, they can stay at the five-star Dolder Grand hotel in Zurich, with which the clinic has a partnership. Another option is to stay at a luxury villa in the resort of St. Moritz.
The point is for the rehab stint to be as discreet as possible. “Many of our patients have an extremely influential place in society,” says Gerber. Stints are often so discreet even members of the client’s entourage sometimes don’t realize what is going on.
While at The Küsnacht Practice, patients follow a clearly defined daily routine. “Actors, politicians and entrepreneurs in particular often have a very unsettled way of life, with a lot of stress and little structure,” Gerber says. He explains that in an environment like that, it is difficult to break free from an addiction. “We try and change the client’s lifestyle.”
For the length of the treatment, a therapist lives with the patient and is there for him or her around the clock – as are a butler and a housekeeper. But psychotherapy is only one of many methods used at The Küsnacht Practice. Addiction therapy is highly complex, Gerber says – there are no “magic pills” to heal the sickness. A combination of different methods is needed to achieve results.
“Brain chemistry”
Yoga, acupuncture, personal training and other complementary therapies constitute important parts of the daily routine. But “brain chemistry,” as Gerber calls it, also plays a major role. “We seek to redress chemical balances in the bodies of drug addicts.” That process starts off with blood and urine tests after which a specialist prescribes nutritional supplements that will help healing. After starting to take the supplements, patients “feel better within days, sometimes even minutes,” Gerber claims.
Lowell Monkhouse, the founder of The Küsnacht Practice, claims the facility’s approach to be unique worldwide. When the Canadian first came to Switzerland 13 years ago he was a manager in a large firm. Concerned about the drug addition problems of several family friends, Monkhouse gradually developed an interest in addiction therapy. From his apartment in Küsnacht, he began counseling them. “You’re good at this,” was something he got used to hearing – and so what had been a hobby became a new career path. Monkhouse began studying psychology and went to the States to train as an addiction therapist.
His client base grew by word of mouth, and he opened The Küsnacht Practice in 2007. Business partners came on board, as did employees. The exclusive establishment now has a staff of 14, with new plans to expand. Says managing director Gerber: “We’re presently looking for additional luxury apartments in the area.”

WORLD'S TOP ECONOMIES IN 2050 WILL BE........




(CNN) – The global research department of HSBC has released a report predicting the rise and fall of the world’s economies in the next 40 years.
The world’s top economy in 2050 will be China, followed by the United States. No surprises there – since China’s reforms in the 1980s, economists have said it’s not a question of if, but when, China’s collective economic might will top the U.S.
But among the smaller, developing nations, there are several surprises by HSBC prognosticators:

* By 2050, the Philippines will leapfrog 27 places to become the world’s 16th largest economy.
* Peru’s economy, growing by 5.5% each year, jumping 20 places to 26th place – ahead of Iran, Colombia and Switzerland. Other strong performers will be Egypt (up 15 places to 20th), Nigeria (up nine places to 37th), Turkey (up six spots to 12th), Malaysia (up 17 to 21st) and the Ukraine (up 19 to 45th).
* Japan’s working population will contract by a world-top 37% in 2050 – yet HSBC economists predict it will still be toward the top performing economies, dropping only one spot to the 4th largest economy. India will jump ahead of Japan to 3rd on the list.
* The big loser in the next 40 years will be advanced economies in Europe, HSBC predicts, who will see their place in the economic pecking order erode as working population dwindles and developing economies climb. Only five European nations will be in the top 20, compared to eight today.  Biggest drop will be felt northern Europe: Denmark to 56th ( -29), Norway to 48th ( -22), Sweden to 38th (-20) and  Finland to 57th (-19).
HSBC 2050 list of top economies (change in rank from 2010)
1) China   (+2)
2) U.S.     (-1)
3) India     (+5)
4) Japan   (-2)
5) Germany (-1)
6)  UK      (-1)
7) Brazil    (+2)
8) Mexico (+5)
9) France (-3)
10)  Canada (same)

26)  Peru     (+20)
27)  Iran      (+7)
28)  Colombia (+12)
29)  Switzerland (-9)
30)  Pakistan (+14)
“If we step away from the cyclicality, there are two ways economies can grow; either add more people to the production line via growth in the working population, or make each individual more productive,” the report says.
In other words, demographics – the size of your working population – along with the opportunities to flex that muscle help determine long-term economic trends. Big factors on the back half of that equation: Education opportunities, democratic governments or strong rule of law (a caveat that explains China and Saudi Arabia’s high placement).
“We openly admit that behind these projections we assume governments build on their recent progress and remain solely focused on increasing the living standards for their populations,” the report says. “Of course, this maybe an overly glossy way of viewing the world.”
Chief factors that may derail economies moving forward, the report says: War, energy consumption constraints, climate change, and growing barriers to population movement across borders.

The Greek parents too poor to care for their children.


Stefanos Alevizos - Greek psychologist
Parents who are not able to provide for their child will feel despair, loneliness and anger. They will carry an enormous weight of cultural stigma and shame.
Children absorb the emotions of their parents, so the child will internalise all the feelings of their parent - particularly guilt. Often they feel they are to blame.
Children taken into care may avoid forming a bond with their carers because they are afraid it would be a betrayal of their parent, and might mean their mother or father will not return for them.
When they get older, they are likely to have problems with trust and that will manifest itself in difficulties with relationships.
Natasha

Damaged safety net

  • Greece's crisis has caused more poverty than its welfare system is equipped to deal with, so charities fill the gap
  • However, donations are down and charities now have to pay taxes they were once exempt from
  • "Charity associations like ours are doing 50% of the work that the Greek state should be doing and instead of thanking us they are penalising us," says director of SOS Children's Villages, George Protopapas
  • Most cases of families giving up children occur in Athens, where traditional family and neighbourhood ties are diluted.
Children play at a centre in Greece caring for young people whose parents are unable to cope

Greece's financial crisis has made some families so desperate they are giving up the most precious thing of all - their children.
One morning a few weeks before Christmas a kindergarten teacher in Athens found a note about one of her four-year-old pupils.
"I will not be coming to pick up Anna today because I cannot afford to look after her," it read. "Please take good care of her. Sorry. Her mother."
In the last two months Father Antonios, a young Orthodox priest who runs a youth centre for the city's poor, has found four children on his doorstep - including a baby just days old.
Another charity was approached by a couple whose twin babies were in hospital being treated for malnutrition, because the mother herself was malnourished and unable to breastfeed.
Cases like this are shocking a country where family ties are strong, and failure to look after children is socially unacceptable - they feel to Greeks like stories from the Third World, rather than their own capital city.
One of the children cared for by Father Antonios is Natasha, a bright two-year-old brought to his centre by her mother a few weeks ago.
The woman said she was unemployed and homeless and needed help - but before staff could offer her support she had vanished, leaving her daughter behind.
"Over the last year we have hundreds of cases of parents who want to leave their children with us - they know us and trust us," Father Antonios says.
"They say they do not have any money or shelter or food for their kids, so they hope we might be able to provide them with what they need."
Requests of this kind were not unknown before the crisis - but Father Antonios has never until now come across children being simply abandoned.
Handouts
One woman driven by poverty to give up her child was Maria, a single mother who lost her job and was unemployed for more than a year.

"Every night I cry alone at home, but what can I do? It hurt my heart, but I didn't have a choice," she says.
She spent her days looking for work, sometimes well into the evening and that often meant leaving eight-year-old Anastasia alone for hours at a time. The two of them lived on food handouts from the church. Maria lost 25kg.
In the end she decided to put Anastasia into foster care with a charity called SOS Children's Villages.
"I can suffer through it but why should she have to?" she asks.
She now has a job in a cafe, but makes just 20 euros (£16) a day. She sees Anastasia about once a month, and hopes to take her back when her economic situation improves - but when that might be she has no idea.
SOS Children's Villages' director of social work, Stergios Sifnyos, says the charity is not accustomed to taking children from families for economic reasons and does not want to.
"The relationship between Maria and Anastasia is very close. You can say you cannot see any problem, [any reason] why this child has to be far away from her mother," he says.
"But it's very difficult for her to feel comfortable to take back the child when she is not sure she will [still] have a job the next days."
'Act of violence'
In the past when SOS Children's Villages took children into its care, the cause was mostly drug and alcohol addiction in the family. Now the main factor is poverty.
Another charity, The Smile of a Child, also focused in the past on cases involving child abuse and neglect. It too is now catering for the destitute of Athens.
Its chief psychologist Stefanos Alevizos, says that when a parent puts a child into care, the child feels its entire foundations have been shaken.
"They experience the separation as an act of violence because they cannot understand the reasons for it," he says.
But The Smile of a Child's Sofia Kouhi says the biggest tragedy, in her eyes, is that those parents who ask for their kids to be taken into care may be the ones who love their children the most.

"It is very sad to see the pain in their heart that they will leave their children, but they know it is for the best, at least for this period," she says.
Father Antonios disagrees.
He believes that no matter how poor parents may be, the child is always better off with its family.
"These families will be judged for abandoning their children," he says.
"We can provide a child with food and shelter, but the truth is that the biggest need any child has is to feel the love of its parents."

Worldwide weird: Making ice hotels cool again

Finland’s Snow Castle of Kemi
The main restaurant in Finland’s Snow Castle of Kemi, the biggest snow fort in the world.



Despite needing to be rebuilt year after year, the number of ice hotels has multiplied across the Arctic Circle in the past decade.
But the novelty concept lost some of its lustre after an ice palaceappeared in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day. Keen to stay cool in travellers’ minds, today’s snow structures have fashioned other frozen water features to stand out from the icy pack.
World’s longest ice slide
This year, the Hôtel de Glace in Quebec City will move its Grand Ice Slide (or Grande Glissade) outside, in order to build it bigger than ever. At 64ft long and 20ft high, it will hold the record for the longest covered slide made completely from snow and ice. Although the hotel has already opened for the season, the slide is scheduled to open on 28 January.
Ice churches
Many ice hotels have small chapels to use for weddings, but Romania’sHotel of Ice goes so far as to sanctify the water used to build their four-metre high church that can fit about 50 people. In the German Bavarian town of Mitterfirmiansreut, residents recently constructed a 65ft-long ice church, called “God’s igloo” by locals. It honours the 100-year anniversary of a similar structure that the townspeople built in 1911 to avoid the 90-minute walk to the closest brick and mortar church.
Igloo disco
Guests have the chance to warm up by getting down at the igloo disco in Finland’s Snow Village. The illuminated ice dance floor is an extension of the resort’s IceBar, where even the drinks are served in ice-moulded glasses. 
Ice castle
Not content to compete with standard ice hotels, Finland’s Snow Castle of Kemi builds the biggest snow fort in the world each year, with some towers reaching more than 20m tall and walls stretching 1,000m long. Because local weather has been unseasonably warm, the opening of the Snow Castle has been pushed back to 28 January this year, but will be open to both day visitors and overnight guests who stay at the attached snow hotel.

Sales of e-cigarettes soar, but do they really work?

A man smokes an electronic cigarette
Despite a damning scientific report on nicotine replacement therapy, more and more smokers are turning to electronic cigarettes to help them quit. Do they work? asks Katie Burnetts



It's January, and everyone and their dog is on some form of NRT (nicotine replacement therapy). The industry is worth £150m in the UK - £520m in the US - yet yesterday's damning scientific report showed nicotine replacement therapy offers no advantage in keeping smokers off cigarettes in the long term.
The report, by Harvard School of Public Health showed that while nicotine-replacement therapies could be useful in the early stages of quitting, ex-smokers were twice as likely to relapse when they relied on them. Going cold turkey, it seems, is the most effective way of giving up.
So what of the fastest growing wheeze from the NRT industry: the e-cigarette? This electronic device releases varying amounts of nicotine in a warm water mist, simulating the flavour of a cigarette. A red LED light at its tip even resembles the burning tip of a cigarette. Because electronic cigarettes produce water vapour rather than smoke, they can be used indoors legally in the UK. Manufacturers claim they taste and smoke like a real cigarette. New figures from the Electronic Cigarette Consumer Association show the UK electronic cigarette industry is now worth about £5m a year. Users of the devices are expected to top 1million this year, despite repeated calls for research into their side effects from medical experts who have raised questions about what the devices contain and their impact on users.
Jamie Leith, 25, director of a social enterprise, has wrestled with his 10 a day addiction (20 on weekends) for five years. "Enough is enough. I saw my friend had an e-cigarette and he'd cut down dramatically so I thought I'd give it a go," says Leith. "For the last 5 years I have been an all or nothing smoker. I managed to quit last year, but I was a roll-up smoker and didn't find that tricky at all. Since working abroad and falling into the trap of 'straight' cigarettes I have feebly failed to quit twice.
"A friend had an e-cig, so along with the rest of the smoking world on January 2nd (I was up past midnight on the 1st and only an idiot quits halfway through the day) I bought one and haven't broken yet. After a week of multiple pints consumed, pubs attended and work stress-outs, I am still holding strong. I almost enjoy it more. Crime-free smoking on public transport - what more could I ask for? My only worry now is trying to quit the e-cig."
Long-time smoker, Ronald Hancock, 65, from County Durham, once enjoyed 40 cigarettes a day, but switched to Vapourlites – a brand of rechargeable e-cigarette (£17.50 for a starter pack) – after he was diagnosed with bowel cancer. "I still get that 'hit'," says Hancock. "For my wife and I, smoking a real cigarette has turned into a bit of a treat now. We'll have a real cigarette once a month, and it's lovely, but it stops there. I had such a scare with my health I'm not about to go and make it worse when there's an alternative that gives me almost the same feeling."

This portrait of a woman by Pablo Picasso, from 1939, is among a number of works stolen from the National Gallery in Athens, Greece, on Monday 9 January 2012.
The work was donated to the Greek people by Picasso in 1949, in recognition of their resistance against the Nazi occupation during World War II.

London (CNN) -- A Pablo Picasso painting given to the Greek people in recognition of their resistance to Nazi occupation during World War II has been stolen from the National Art Gallery in Athens.
"Head of a Woman," painted in 1939, was among three works taken in the early morning heist on Monday, the authorities said. A fourth work was dropped by the thief, or thieves, during their getaway.
The Picasso portrait, which depicts a woman in a white blouse against a blue background, is inscribed on the reverse: "For the Greek people, a tribute from Picasso." It was donated by the artist in 1946.
Greek police say the raider, or raiders, also made off with Piet Mondrian's "Landscape with a mill," and a pen-and-ink sketch of San Diego de Alcala in ecstasy by Renaissance artist Guglielmo Caccia.
"Landscape with a farm," a second figurative painting by Dutch artist Mondrian -- who is better known for his abstract works -- was left behind as the burglar ran away.
Officers say the intruder, or intruders, interfered with the alarm system several times overnight, setting it off repeatedly so that it was disabled by the museum guards.
At about 4.30am local time (06:30 GMT), the raider(s) broke into the gallery's temporary exhibition area through an aluminum-framed door on a balcony.
During the theft, a motion detector was activated, alerting a guard who chased one thief, but was unable to catch him.
The raid led Citizen's Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis to criticize security at the gallery, which is home to works by Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse and Peter Paul Rubens.
"I am very sorry because an artwork of huge value was stolen," news agency Agence France-Presse quoted Papoutsis as saying. "This incident should prompt a re-evaluation of the National Gallery's security arrangements."
Athens' National Art Gallery showcases works from the 14th to the 20th centuries, and is best known for its collections of Greek and Renaissance art, including paintings by El Greco, Tiepolo and Brueghel.
The theft took place on the final day of an exhibition entitled "Unknown Treasures," which had featured prints and etchings by Albrecht Duerer and Rembrandt van Rijn.
