Le sabreur Joseph Polossifakis obtient son billet pour Rio

Fri, 2016-05-06 10:05

ESCRIME. Joseph Polossifakis rêvait depuis 14 ans à une participation aux Jeux olympiques. Son souhait deviendra réalité cet été à Rio.

Le sabreur a mérité sa qualification olympique en obtenant récemment une 39e place au Grand Prix de Séoul, en Corée du Sud.

Au tableau des 64, Joseph Polossifakis avait cependant baissé pavillon 15-11 à son premier affrontement face au Sud-Coréen Hansol Ha. La veille, il était passé directement de la ronde des poules au tableau principal, en remportant cinq de ses six affrontements de cinq touches.

Enough Of Hockey Nightmare In Canada

Fri, 2016-05-06 09:45

Please read this one evening, during Hockey Night in America, when you have nothing to do. That no Canadian team made the playoffs this year may be a random occurrence. That none has won a Stanley Cup for 23 years is not. Something is up -- or down.

All kinds of explanations have been offered: the low Canadian dollar, higher taxes, questionable management, players preferring obscurity, and so on. Don't believe any of it; they are all excuses. The fans are here, the audiences are here, the money is here, and the energy is here, or at least could be.

Le succès de Juliette, la femme derrière le chocolat

Thu, 2016-05-05 11:22

Un moment en compagnie de Juliette Brun — la fameuse Juliette derrière Juliette et Chocolat — suffit à tout comprendre; le succès amplement mérité, le travail acharné, la passion, la gourmandise (pour le chocolat et pour la vie en générale), l'optimisme, la joie de vivre et la vision. Tel son produit fétiche qu'elle affectionne tant, la femme d'affaires se veut solide, douce, originale et réconfortante.
