    In case there is some french-speaking people in CDC, here is a docmentary made by french television couple of years ago on Antoine Roussel. This is really interesting, there is also parts in English, for example when Dallas coach is speaking about him.

  3. Cities

    Well, you raise a critical point for sure. Urban planners are aware that the trend of development is going to non-sustainable cities. That's precisly where urban planners have to come up with improvments (I won't say solutions ^^) in order to improve sustainability. For example improve sustainable mobility scheme by creating better public transportation as well as incentives to shift from private cars to better kind of mobility. Or another example using the roofs as vagatable gardens, etc.
  4. Cities

    Hi ! I'm from Switzerland and I'm studying Urban Planning, and more precisely Sustainable Cities. Part from my programm, we had school field trip in San Francisco and the bay area for 20 days in April. The topic Sustainable Cities is very broad and englobes various topic and issues. But for the main ones pollution in cities has been an issue for decades now. GHG emissions in cities have two main sources : Buildings (Residencial & Commercial) and Transportation. Regarding buildings you want to focus on having sustainable source of energy as much as possible. You also have 'buildings certifications' (LEED Standards) or retroffiting of old buildings. Pullution has also to due with health issues (PM 2.5 for example). Transportation is really key in my opignion as this is also a social issue. Equal access to public transportation, incentives for 'soft modes' of mobility, etc. Waste management is also an interesting topic to focus on if you are working on sustainable cities. How to reduce waste production, reuse as much as possible, recycle better, raise awareness, etc. Finally, on personnal point of view, I was a bit shocked to see how San Francisco and other cities in the bay area are literraly build for cars. If you go to europe, pay attention to slow mobility. I think cities official in EU are really commited to modal shift in cities. As daily cyclist commuter in Switzerland, this difference striked me ^^ I hope you understood me, sorry for my english mistakes and enjoy cour time in Europe

    Leonardo Genoni doesn't look good on the second goal. But man Switzerland please don't take dumb penalties and score a goal.
  7. NHL 2018 Draft Lottery

    I don't know which one I prefer... Bouchard, Hughes, Boqvist or Dobson... ^^
  8. Man the Jets are fun to watch. Especially Big Buff' and Laine. It's kind of painful to imagine that we could have drafted Laine if the Canucks had a bit more luck at the draft. But still happy the Jets drafted him and not Toronto or Edmonton ^^

    Here is a full clip of Elias Petterson breaking the record and being congratulated by teammates, coachs, etc. Great, just great http://www.swisshabs.ch/actualites/elias-pettersson-bat-un-record-vieux-de-42-ans
  10. Bourque and Roy were the best players for me against Switzerland, dangerous on almost every shifts.
  11. What is your team and your role?

    Winnipeg, Franchise Player. Am I Patrik Laine ? =P
  12. Linden Vey | #7 | RW

    He just signed with Zurich in NLA (Swiss league), former team of Crawford (the coach) and Auston Matthews. So, no so bad, swiss life quality, way less travel time in a good league where he will have a big role and a big pay (around 700'000-800'000.- I assume).
  13. Anton Rödin | RW/LW

    I really feel bad for the guy. So much bad luck. He was having a great start with Davos. 4GP, 1 goal, 5 Assists. Terrible what happens to him
  14. Dorsett not returning to active roster

    So sad for the guy, I wish him the best for the future ! Is Tootoo still on Waivers ? Can we grab him still ? Maybe he can bring the toughness DD brought
