Swiss consumer confidence clearly more optimistic

Switzerland's consumer sentiment improved strongly in the three months to January to its highest level in two-and-a-half years, survey results from the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, or SECO, showed Tuesday. The consumer confidence index climbed to -3 from -13 in October, marking its highest level since July 2014, the survey conducted among roughly 1,200 consumers revealed. The reading is above its long-term average, after six below-average quarters. "Consumers are clearly more optimistic about where they feel the economy is going as well as being less gloomy about the future development of unemployment and their own financial situation. This is thus the first time that consumers have rated the outlook in many areas as positively as they did shortly before the Swiss franc shock in early 2015" SECO said.

US: Teenager invents smart gun to save lives

An idea that started in his parents basement, nineteen year old Kai Kloepfer from Boulder, Colorado created a gun that works like a smartphone.   If the gun is picked up by an authorized user, a sensor recognizes the fingerprint and it will fire.  “I think this could be huge, I think this could be the future of firearms,” Kloepfer said.  This fingerprint sensor utilizes technologies from biometric security measures, which might be the solution to solving the United States' gun violence problem (and not only in US).
