Best things to do in Brussels

Among Europe’s big cities , Brussels doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. Yet Belgium’s capital has prime architecture, public parks, and 19 municipalities, each with its own distinct vibe. These include trendy Ixelles, artsy Saint-Gilles, and the city center with its Grand-Place on the main square, surrounded by opulent buildings. Add to that a unique artistic sense, excellent cuisine, and multilingual conversation — French, Dutch, and German are all official languages, and English i...

Man City ‘very close’ to Bruno Fernandes signing – A Bola

As per a report from Portuguese outlet A Bola, Manchester City are inching closer to sealing a deal for highly-regarded Sporting CP star Bruno Fernandes. Sporting standout Fernandes, a gifted attack-minded midfielder, made the return to his home country of Portugal with Sporting in the summer of 2017, after a 5-year stint in Italy. And to say that the 24-year-old has since gone on to establish himself as a key contributor at the José Alvalade Stadium would be putting it lightly. Fernandes’ com...

4 Unique Places to Stay in Quebec Winter

When you think of Quebec winter and snow, you normally think of a big comfy lodge with a couch you can sink into, a big fireplace, hot toddy, and lots of flannel. But I don’t like to do the expected, so instead of staying in a big cozy lodge for my winter adventures in Quebec, I instead opted for the unique, rustic, unusual, scary, and some would say just plain weird accommodations around Quebec. I normally say that people don’t go to a destination to experience a hotel, but in this case, I may ...

The Ultimate Wolf Experience

As I was about to nod off to sleep, I heard it. “Owwoooooo”. A howl that made the little hairs on the back of my neck stand up at attention. Soon after, I heard another howl join in, and then another. It was a howling chorus – and it was happening right outside my window. In fact, the wolves were so close I could hear the snow crunch beneath their paws as they paced back and forth. Don’t worry, the wolves were supposed to be there; I was sleeping with the wolves on this cold winter night on purp...

Riverside House: A Normandy Guesthouse from an Upstart American Restaurateur

Jordan Feilders is the American who introduced California-style artisanal burger and taco trucks to Paris. He was newly arrived from San Francisco in 2012 when he rolled out his mobile catering business, Cantine California, which made such a splash that Anthony Bourdain paid an enthusiastic visit and The New York Times reported: “Food Trucks in Paris?

Mitzvah-minded unicorn Cross River is on holy mission to foster bank-fintech harmony

“Then I took your ancestor Abraham from the other side of the Euphrates River and led him through the entire land of Canaan. I multiplied his descendants, and gave him his son Isaac.” That’s a passage from Joshua 24:3 in describing how Abraham “crossed over” the demarcation line into a spiritual awakening. It’s also the inspiration for the name of Cross River Bank (CR), led by its charismatic founder Gilles Gade. The Hudson River may not have the holy resonance of the Euphrates; however, the...

When is Carnival

Even if you don’t buy into the whole Lent business of depriving yourself of delicious foods and festivities for 40 days before Easter, you can still take part in the grand celebration that comes before it: Carnival. Most Christian cultures around the world have made the final celebration before the fast their own, and some are particularly worth seeking out for their sheer scale, exuberance, or originality. If you’re looking to tap into the spirit of a nation, want to celebrate before you sto...

2019 Revised Subject Matter Eligibility Guidance

Chad Gille at BigPatentData reports on the first handful of PTAB decisions considering eligibility under the 2019 Revised Subject Matter Eligibility Guidance. The outcome — 101 Rejection Affirmed in five of six cases.  Gilles writes “If your claim can still be lumped into the very broad ‘certain methods of organizing human activity’ the new guidance may not be of much help.” LINK

Indoor-Outdoor Living in Paris: A Windowless Warehouse Converted into a Family Loft, Central Courtyard Included

New meaning for hidden potential: when Marie and Gilles Ballard were searching for bigger quarters in Paris for their family of four, they toured possibilities of all sorts—until they came to across a single-story industrial building in the 11th, “a Chinese fabrics warehouse with no windows or openings to bring in light.” It was exactly what they were looking for. “Given the price of real estate in Paris, we had to find something that no one else wanted,” says Gilles. “We hoped to imagine and cr...

Nam Nguyen edges teen phenom Stephen Gogolev for Canadian figure skating gold

SAINT JOHN, N.B. — Nam Nguyen had made a deal with his parents, the sole supporters of his career since he first stuffed his feet in figure skates. Either the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic season would be his last, or he would start paying for his skating himself. He chose the latter. And when he edged 14-year-old phenom Stephen Gogolev to win his second Canadian figure skating title on Saturday, Nguyen credited the newfound balance in his life. "I'm very pleased with what I did tonight. It just...

Fourteen-year-old Gogolev poised to make Canadian figure skating history

SAINT JOHN, N.B. — Stephen Gogolev might be two years too young to compete internationally as a senior skater. But he's poised to become the youngest skater ever to capture a Canadian senior title, a record set 65 years ago. The 14-year-old from Toronto won the short program at the Canadian championships on Friday night, bringing the Harbour Station crowd to its feet with a performance that opened with a quadruple Salchow-triple toe loop combination. He earned 88.77 points. "I'm very ...

Penguins Family Ties: The Franchise’s Father-Son Duos

In Pittsburgh, people are said to bleed black and gold. The obsession starts at home, where children are encouraged to grow up to be lifelong fans of the hometown teams. For some Pittsburgh Penguins players and their fathers, their connections to the organization run deeper than mere fandom. Seven father-son duos have taken the ice with the Penguins, proving that black and gold might just be in the blood after all.

2007 NHL Entry Draft: 5 Forgotten Picks

The 2007 NHL Entry Draft in Columbus is notable for a number of reasons. It was an American-heavy draft, the first-ever in which U.S. born players went first and second overall — Patrick Kane to the Chicago Blackhawks and James Van Riemsdyk to the Philadelphia Flyers, respectively — and second-ever in which 10 Americans were drafted in the first round. The 2007 NHL Entry Draft produced a number of big stars such as Patrick Kane. (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) It was also notable for a whoppi...

Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie – Sardines, Amazing Beach and Striped Clothing

Pictures only tell half of the story. For instance, if you scroll down for a minute and look at the pictures of the aptly and unimaginatively named grande plage, you may assume we took a directly flight from Nantes to the Caribbean. Not at all. We bought a €45 two-day TER—transport express regional—train pass valid for up to five people travelling together on the extensive regional network, which is quite a deal considering how expensive train tickets can be.

How to turn the Ducati Scrambler into a tracker

The Ducati Scrambler is an obvious fit for ‘casual’ flat track racing. Ducati even made a ‘Flat Track Pro’ limited edition in 2016, which was essentially a new version of the Full Throttle with wide bars, a bunch of minor trim changes and a Temignoni muffler. It looks like Ducati is now digging deeper into flat track territory: it’s commissioned a pair of flat track-style Scramblers from one of our favorite French builders, Bad Winners. In his Paris workshop, Bad Winners’ head honcho Walid...

Testbed: An XSR900 crammed with cutting-edge tech

The new wave custom scene was originally built on a love for the old school. But these days, we’re seeing more ‘neo’ and less retro, and some very cutting-edge production tech. A lot of builders now prefer computers to sketch pads, and 3D printers over English wheels. And that’s fine by us—if the results are as good as this radical Yamaha XSR900. Built by Dab Motors of France, the metal parts have been created using ‘laser beam melting’ and the bodywork is crafted from flax fibers. ‘ALTER’...

Huge injury blow for Arsenal’s Xhaka

Bad news There could be trouble on the horizon for Arsenal player Granit Xhaka, who seemed to pull up injured during training with Switzerland. He was of course training with the national side ahead of the World Cup, and seemed to have a serious issue with his knee after clashing with a fellow player – and it’s thought the midfielder will now have an MRI on his knee to assess the extent of the injury. It’s terrible timing for the player, with the group stages for the World Cup less than a month...

Gold standard: A Monster 1200 R with 24K Gold Accents

The Ducati Monster 1200 R is a brutal machine—and I mean that in the best way possible. With 152 hp and 125 Nm at the ready, backed up by Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes, it’s a damn near perfect hooligan machine. Visually, it’s also surprisingly true to Miguel Galluzzi‘s original M900, even though the line is 25 years old this year. And just like the original Monster, it responds well to mild tweaking. A little Rizoma here, a little Termignoni there, and hey presto, you’ve got a really s...
