in an all-white strip, and are currently in the Swiss 1. Liga (Swiss 1. Liga (football)), the third tier of Swiss football. The club play home matches at the Stade Municipal (Stade Municipal (Yverdon)). In France and Switzerland it is used in the manufacture of absinthe. Ulrich's name and his place of origin (''Zezikon'' in Switzerland) are only known definitively from the work itself. However, it is generally accepted that Ulrich is the same person as a lay priest (''"Leutpriester"'') from Lommis in the canton (Cantons of Switzerland) of Thurgau by the name of ''Uolricus de Cecinchoven'', who occurs as a witness to a deed of gift dated March 29, 1214, executed by the family of the Counts of Toggenburg in favor of the monastery of St. Peterzell. The author is often identified with a Swiss (Switzerland) cleric named in a document from 1214, though little else is known of him. He claims he translated ''Lanzelet'' from a ''welschez'' (Middle High German for French (French language), but in this case probably Anglo-Norman (Anglo-Norman language)) book brought to Germany by Hugo de Morville (Hugh de Morville, Lord of Westmorland), one of the Crusaders who replaced Richard the Lionhearted as a hostage when the king had been arrested by Leopold V, Duke of Austria in 1194. The poem features a version of the hero's childhood, including the death of his father Pant (King Ban) (Ban) and his upbringing by a water fay (Lady of the Lake), that is similar to that contained in the Prose Lancelot and mentioned in Chrétien de Troyes' ''Lancelot, the Knight of the Cart'', but it deviates very strikingly from the familiar version of Lancelot's life in other respects. The most notable among these is the absence of the hero's famous love affair with Arthur (King Arthur)'s wife Guinevere; when Ginover (Guinevere) is abducted by King Valerin it is not Lanzelet who rescues her, and Lanzelet eventually finds love elsewhere with a young princess named Iblis. It has been suggested that Lancelot, who is mentioned for the first time by Chrétien de Troyes in his first romance ''Erec and Enide'', was originally the hero of a story independent of the adulterous love triangle and perhaps very similar to Ulrich's version. If this is true, then the adultury facet would have been added either by Chrétien in ''Knight of the Cart'' or the source provided him by his patron, Marie de Champagne. '''AXA Winterthur''' is a multinational insurance company. The original company named '''Winterthur''' was founded in Winterthur, Switzerland, in 1875. Until June 2006, Winterthur was a Credit Suisse (CS) subsidiary.

The first hand-coloured daguerreotypes are attributed to Swiss (Switzerland) painter and printmaker Johann Baptist Isenring, who used a mixture of gum arabic and pigments to colour daguerreotypes soon after their invention in 1839. Henisch, H.K. & Henisch, B. (1996). ''The painted photograph 1939-1914: Origins, techniques, aspirations''. Pennsylvania: The Pennsylvania State University Press. p. 21. Coloured powder was fixed on the delicate surface of the daguerreotype by the application of heat. Variations of this technique were patented in England by Richard Beard (Richard Beard (photographer)) in 1842 and in France by Étienne Lecchi in 1842 and Léotard de Leuze in 1845. Later, hand-colouring was used with successive photographic innovations, from albumen and gelatin silver prints to lantern slides (Magic lantern) Robinson, D., Herbert, S., Crangle, R., & Magic Lantern Society of Great Britain.

He was the son of Jacques Boissier (1784-1857) and Lucile Butini (1786-1836), daughter of Pierre Butini (1759-1838) a well-known physician and naturalist from Geneva. With his sister, Valérie Boissier (1813-1894), he received a strict education with lessons delivered in Italian and Latin. Edmond's interest in natural history stemmed from holidays in the company of his mother and his grandfather, Pierre Butini at Valeyres-sous-Rances. His hikes in the Jura (Jura Mountains) and the Alps laid the foundation of his zest for later exploration and adventure. He attended a course at the Academy of Geneva given by Augustin Pyramus de Candolle. Boissier collected extensively in Europe, North Africa and western Asia, on occasion accompanied by his daughter, Caroline Barbey-Boissier (1847-1918) and her husband, William Barbey (1842-1914), who collected in their own right for their ''Herbier Barbey-Boissier'' in Geneva. Boissier covered countries such as France, Greece, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain (Balearic Islands), Switzerland, Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Armenia, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. His specimens are held at the following herbaria: AK, AWH, B, BERN, BM, BORD, BP, BR, C, CAS, CGE, CN, DBN, E, E-GL, F, FABR, FI, FR, G, GE, GH, GOET, H, HAL, JE, K, KIEL, L, LAU, LE, LY, LZ, M, MA, MANCH, MICH, MO, MPU, OXF, P, P-CO, PH, PI, TCD, TO, W, WAG, WB (see List of herbaria).

Attempts to establish a ''Räterepublik (soviet (council))'' (republican system of councillors) in Austria resulted in developments different to those in Germany or Russia, as the ''Räte'' were able to establish themselves in only isolated, high-population density areas such as Vienna and the industrial areas of Upper Austria. However, a "Red Guard" (''Rote Garde'') was formed and soon integrated with the ''Volkswehr'' (People's Resistance Army). On November 12, 1918 there was an attempted coup d'état, which was not professionally organised and not authorised by the Soviet government. Within hours, the coup was smashed. Italian ''opera seria'' (invariably to Italian librettos) was produced not only in Italy but also in Habsburg Austria, England, Saxony and other German states (Germany), even in Spain, and other countries. ''Opera seria'' was less popular in France, where the national genre of French opera was preferred. Popular composers of ''opera seria'' included Alessandro Scarlatti, Johann Adolf Hasse, Leonardo Vinci, Nicola Porpora, George Frideric Handel, and in the second half of the 18th century Tommaso Traetta, Gluck (Christoph Willibald Gluck), and Mozart (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart).
