I am looking for some help with setting up a home network. I have fibre broadband, but the signal doesn't reach all the areas in my apartment. I bought a range extender but don't seem to be able to install it well. Can anyone in the area come help me install it for a small fee? Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes.

I will move to Basel next year and am currently looking for primary level teaching jobs in International Schools. Many of them ask what your salary expectations are. All of the ones I have seen to date talk about accommodation,flights home, relocation allowances etc as part of the package. However, despite searching though the forums here, I can't find any recent information about expected salary. Clearly, from what I have read, it is dependent on a number of key points so this is my situation: I am seeking full time employment in an International School as a primary teacher. I will be bringing one dependent of primary school age (I am single). I am currently in a leadership role and will have 14 years teaching experience by next year. I have my Bachelor's degree in education. Although I have not taught in an International School before, my current position is in a private special character school. I have excellent references and am experienced in the use of ICTs, including training other teachers, as well as ESOL. I really just need a ball park figure of what to put down for expected salary. I don't think comparing directly with my NZ salary will help me much as the tax and cost of living is going to mean I am comparing apples with oranges. Any idea on a reasonable expectation of salary given my experience would be most appreciated. Thanks for your help.   //

I know the hairdressing topic has been canvassed before, but does anyone know or recommend a hairdresser that would be skilled at colouring and cutting fine, wavy hair? I'd really like to find someone that won't cost a fortune. I used to see a hairdresser friend at her home, but she has moved back to Australia. I live in Zurich Central area but don't mind travelling to see the right person. Thanks in advanced, Claire

Hey Guys, I am looking for a gym that is not one of these mainstream centers with thousands of different services aka people that want to hang out and do something else than grinding some iron. I do weight training and some cardio and I would like to do it in a place with serious lifters too. Is there such a place here? Thanks a lot.

Dear friends,  I've just found something quite interesting and feel to share it with all the users here. Seems that SEG group will now be providing its entire student and teacher body with advanced iPads as well as dedicated learning content. Thought that we may all support the local students. All we have to do is to follow SEG Educational Revolution Campaign - iPad Launch Online Video Competition run by SHMS and IHTTI from August 29 until September 14 and vote for the best! Here's the link for those that are eager to encourage the students around: http://seg-revolution.ch   Regrads, Claire

I have had mixed experiences with making friends here. How have you found making friends to work out? have you found that it makes a difference to speak schweizer deutch?
