The upmarket resort of Gstaad has an online problem, and a person living in Monaco is to blame, according to local news reports.
In 2006, the Gstaad-Saanenland Tourist Office forgot to renew its domain name, gstaad.com. The domain was put up for sale by auction, and bought by the Monaco resident for €26,330 ($31,500).
A year ago, the Gstaad took the case to the Commercial Court for the Canton of Bern and lost its case at the State Arbitration Court. The office has now appealed to the World Intellectual Property Organisation, one of 17 specialised offshoots of the United Nations and the accepted forum for rulings on domain rights.
A verdict is expected shortly.
St. Paul’s Anglican Church has started making online videos of their weekly sermons in English, so parishioners don’t have to miss out during the lockdown.
The National Council says it wants to keep the Condamine and Monte-Carlo markets open, despite the closure of all food markets this week across France.
The government has added psychologists to the team at Monaco’s Covid-19 call centre as a growing number of people seek advice on how to cope with isolation and fear.
The National Council is calling on the Prince’s government to create a makeshift hospital in preparation for a surge in coronavirus cases in the Principality.
Monaco welcome PSG in the third round of the French Ligue 1 on Saturday. The sides are separated by two points, Monaco on four and PSG on six. And although PSG has dominated France’s Ligue 1 for several years, history favours Monaco, who have won 18 of 43 meetings (D14 L11) including the most recent meeting in the last season where they beat the eventual league winners 2-0.
Although PSG are the more dominant side in recent times, the clash between these two has always been tense and capable of going any way – seven of the last ten have ended in draws. PSG have picked well in the change of reign from Laurent Blanc to Unai Emery, with four goals and two clean sheets in the first two matches, according to footballscores24.com.
Edinson Cavani did not have much of an impact against Metz, but is likely to be included against Monaco for power and experience. The real threat in front of goal should be Lucas. Monaco were clearly outplayed by Villarreal in a champions league playoff this week, but won 1-0 anyway, and 3-1 aggregate. They may suffer the same against PSG, but this being Emery’s first game in charge of PSG against Monaco, a Monaco win is likely, according to a number of sports commentators.
