A prize is an award to be given to a person or a group of people to recognise and reward actions or achievements. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prize]
I did win a Synology DS710+ & DX510 by filling out a survey, after having read an official tweet of Synology Inc.(http://twitter.com/Synology) about the contest 3 weeks ago. The funny part is that I bought a Synology DS1010+ (704CHF/692$) and 4TB of disk (280CHF/275$) at the same time…
On the picture above, this is my current small datacenter :-)
The DS 510 will perfectly complete my existing DS1010+, the DS710+ will be assigned to some other tasks. Synology is really developing high-performance, reliable, versatile, and environmentally-friendly Network Attached Storage products. I did never had any problems, and all software updates were working as expected. They are by far the best NAS on the market with a lot of software functionalities thanks to a Linux kernel.
I have done one last Saturday…for 22.90€ in France
An Orthopantomogram (OPG) or Dental Panoramic Radiograph (DPR), also known as a "panorex", is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. It shows a two-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear. An OPG relies on tomography i.e. images of specific radiographic planes are taken to make up the larger panoramic image. [WikiPedia]
I then ask what a MRI Magnetic resonance imaging cost, only 69€ TTC in Mulhouse (France 25km from Swiss Borders)
Amoxicillin is used in the treatment of a number of infections including: acute otitis media, streptococcal pharyngitis, pneumonia, skin infections, urinary tract infections, salmonella, lyme disease, and chlamydia infections.
I have to do some dental work done, and this is how I came across the following outrageous prizes in Switzerland:
|Number of Pills||Price €||Price CHF||Price per Pill||Origin|
|TEVA||12||2.06 €||2.47 CHF||0.2058 CHF||France|
|SANDOZ||12||2.25€||2.70 CHF||0.225 CHF||France|
|ZENTIVA||12||2.25€||2.70 CHF||0.225 CHF||France|
|MEPHA||20||37.5€||45 CHF||2.25 CHF||Switzerland|
Price per pill is 10 yes TEN times more expensive in Switzerland than in France! Yes that a
Switzerland's Health Care System is DEEPLY BROKEN and controlled by 3 monopoly
|Number||Density for 100’000 persons||France |
|Number||Density for 100’000 persons|
|Insurance companies||80 to 90 private insurance companies||1’275 mutuelles |
118 private insurance companies
CH: references 2010 + Swiss HealthCare System + http://www.civitas.org.uk/nhs/download/switzerland.pdf
FR: References 2012 + Private Health Insurance in France http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/35/11/30455292.pdf 2500 pages / page 18 “Mutuelles represent roughly 60% of the total market. Non-profit provident institutions and private insurance companies (including both for-profit and non-profit carriers) split the remaining 40%”
Never Never buy any medicament in Switzerland, go to France/ Germany by Car, offer you a restaurant and a day abroad and it will be still cheaper!
For the skeptical out there I have all bills and boxes to prove this!
