The week ahead Friday prayers, an odd apprenticeship and weather frogs

Here are some of the stories we will be bringing you the week starting January 23, 2017. 



Our journalists recount their visit to a Swiss mosque where they took part in Friday prayers. They went there to check out media reports about the alleged radicalisation of the areas around Islamic centres of worship. 



Was spending more than a million Swiss francs in taxpayers’ money to fund a handwashing project in India money down the drain? We’ll publish a critical assessment. 



Too young to drive a car and barely old enough to order a beer, a Swiss teenager finds himself holding the reins in an unusual apprenticeship. 



A prolonged drought followed by a freezing and snowy January. Weather remains unpredictable, yet our thirst for knowledge about it remains unquenched. A new exhibition in Zurich looks at the latest technology used by Swiss meteorologists as well as the folklore of the country’s “weather frogs”.
