There have been many who have laid claim to the invention of the folding bike.
Humorously, a bike manufacturer (who shall remain nameless so as to not unduly embarrass them) audaciously claims on their website to have produced the world's first folding bike in 1973.
The 'central scenario' sees the Greek bailout negotiations 'drag on' through the summer without definitive resolution and struggles in the Dutch parliament to form a coalition.Wishful thinking by their marketing department I suppose.The truth is that the folding bike has been around for considerably longer than one might imagine and most claims of being the first are erroneous.Analysing possible outcomes in the Dutch, French and German elections as well as Britain's triggering of Article 50 to kick-start Brexit and Greece's debt negotiations, Credit Suisse strategists offered three scenarios for Europe's immediate future.The 'negative' option has Greece struggle for more debt funding and anti-immigration nationalist Le Pen president.'Credit Suisse strategists take the view that the French presidential election...poses the most important risk for Europe this year,' the bank said in a statement, referring to the April 23 vote, with a second round set for May 7 if needed.'Any narrowing of the polls in Le Pen's favour will create a high degree of volatility in the markets,' it added.Scenario one, billed as 'positive' by Switzerland's number two bank, sees pro-European, centrist candidates winning in France and Germany when the key continental powers vote in April and September, respectively.Today, gold has come roaring back as a popular method of personal investment for those who don’t trust their hard-earned wealth to the volatility of modern stock markets.JM Bullion is one of North America’s leading authorized dealers, and we’re proud to carry a wide selection of cast and minted ingot gold bars to suit the requirements of any investor.In this scenario, France's centrist and upstart candidate Emmanuel Macron wins the country's presidential election but has trouble carving out a governing mandate.Credit Suisse said it will update its 'Risk Barometer' regularly to reflect levels of systemic risk in European bond and equity markets.It was discovered in 1990 during construction of the A5 motorway at Monruz (La Coudre).The site was about 5 m (16 ft) below the main road.The earrings may have served as symbols of fertility and represent the oldest known art in Switzerland.
