Samsung considering webOS purchase

first_imgHP is look for a way to profit from webOS that doesn’t require manufacturing hardware. It’s also said to be actively shopping for licensees and partners for the OS. And, like IBM before it, HP is also looking to sell off its PC business. Samsung was rumored to be interested in the latter, though the Korean giant has since denied having any interest. But could it be that signals were being misread? Might Samsung be interested in webOS?It’s certainly possible. Samsung’s chairman Lee Kun-hee has talked previously about the fact that importance in the IT world has been shifting toward software companies and away from hardware companies. You need only look at the homogenaity of Android smartphones for proof of that — devices are becoming more an more similar, with a few millimeters of chassis often being the only distinguishing hardware feature.Samsung is also said to be more than a tad nervous about Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility and might be looking for a backup plan should its own Bada OS run up against a brick wall. That certainly wasn’t the case at launch time, with Bada enjoying the most successful debut since the original iPhone, but the mobile space is constantly evolving and webOS could provide Samsung with a strong, complete mobile OS for both phones and tablets as well as an associated patent portfolio that could provide some much-needed protection in the increasingly litigious world in which it competes.With Samsung recently snapping up one of HP’s own — the Personal Systems Group’s VP of marketing Raymond Wah — the plot is thickening. Will Samsung pull the trigger and add a fourth OS to its mobile lineup? Share your thoughts in the comments!More at SlashGear, and previous coverage of this from June 2011.last_img read more

Pro gaming pays Fatal1ty tops the eSports charts earning 454544

first_imgProfessional video games tournaments, so-called electronic sports or eSports, are becoming increasingly big business. In fact, it has reached a point where parents may actually encourage their kids to go pro after viewing the latest earning figures.The e-Sports Earnings website has posted the top 100 pro gamers based on how much money they have earned over their careers solely from eSports tournaments. These aren’t small figures. In 100th place is Polish player neo who has earned a grand total of $66,183.28, with his most lucrative game being Counter-Strike. Move up to 50th place and we see the Korean player JangBi. He has earned $128,347.99 by mostly competing in StarCraft: Brood War.The money starts to increase substantially when we enter the top 10. The 10th place pro gamer earned $267,699.10, and 5th place $367,902.11. But top of the list is a name many gamers will know quite well: US pro-gamer Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel. Over the course of 35 tournaments he has earned a massive $454,544.98. Over half of that has been collected playing Painkiller ($240,550.00).Becoming experienced enough to compete with these guys takes a lot of hard work and training, just like anything you want to get good at. But the money is clearly there to be made, and if you’re serious (and good enough) it could actually turn into a career.It’s also worth pointing out that the totals listed for these pro-gamers are just for eSports tournaments. They should all be suplementing that income with sponsorship deals and other tournament series. Fatal1ty is a good example of this, having had a series of ASRock PC gaming components, and even gaming food, carry his name or official backing.last_img read more

32 nouvelles exigences pour exploiter la centrale de Tricastin

first_img32 nouvelles exigences pour exploiter la centrale de TricastinL’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire (ASN) vient d’imposer 32 nouvelles exigences de sécurité à EDF concernant le réacteur numéro 1 de la centrale du Tricastin, dans la Drôme. Ces mesures s’inspirent directement des leçons tirées de la catastrophe de Fukushima.L’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire (autorité indépendante) avait approuvé en décembre la prolongation du réacteur numéro 1 de la centrale du Tricastin, dans la Drôme pour “dix années supplémentaires”. Ce réacteur de 900 mégawatts fonctionnant déjà depuis 30 ans, l’ASN précisait que ce feu vert serait assorti d’une série de “prescriptions techniques” pour renforcer le niveau de sécurité de ce réacteur et le rapprocher des exigences en vigueur dans des installations plus récentes.À lire aussiLe pied d’éléphant, cette effrayante masse radioactive cachée dans les entrailles de TchernobylAujourd’hui, un communiqué rapporté par TV5monde dévoile les prescriptions en question qui “couvrent la totalité des opérations d’exploitation et renforcent notamment le niveau d’exigence applicable en matière de protection du site vis-à-vis des risques d’agressions externes d’origine naturelle (inondation, séisme, incendie)”. Elle impose aussi de nouveaux contrôles de la zone de la cuve du réacteur n° 1 du Tricastin “dont les défauts sont connus et surveillés”. En tout, 32 prescriptions qui pourront encore être complétées une fois les résultats de l’audit de sûreté de toutes les installations nucléaires lancé par l’ASN connus, souligne le communiqué.Concrètement, l’ASN demande à EDF d’effectuer d’ici fin 2014 des travaux de protection du site contre des risques d’inondation et cinq prescriptions concernent les risques sismiques. La catastrophe de Fukushima est passée par là depuis l’autorisation qui remonte à décembre, et cela se ressent. Aussi, l’Autorité souhaite que des mesures soient prises pour éviter une explosion d’hydrogène dans l’enceinte de confinement du réacteur et améliorer le système de refroidissement de la piscine où est entreposé le combustible usé du réacteur.Le 1 juillet 2011 à 14:29 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Antarctique le lac Vostok abriterait une surprenante variété de vie

first_imgAntarctique : le lac Vostok abriterait une “surprenante” variété de vieLes derniers résultats d’analyse d’échantillons du lac Vostok ont révélé que ces eaux subglaciaires abritaient une grande diversité d’organismes : des bactéries certes, mais aussi d’autres organismes unicellulaires et pluricellulaires comme des champignons.Il semblerait que le lac Vostok ait mérité tout l’intérêt qu’on lui porte depuis des décennies. Après y avoir consacré plus de 20 ans, des scientifiques russes ont finalement réussi en février 2012 à forer ce mystérieux lac subglaciaire, le plus étendu et le plus profond, situé en Antarctique. Ils ont ainsi pu y prélever en décembre plusieurs échantillons d’eau et de glace via une technique particulière censée empêchée toute contamination. Objectif : identifier les organismes qui vivent dans ces eaux isolées depuis plus de 15 millions d’années. Pour cela, ils avaient donc commencé à analyser les fameux échantillons mais les premiers résultats avaient déçu, ne révélant aucune trace de vie particulière. Quelques mois plus tard, un chercheur avait annoncé avoir identifié une bactérie inconnue, mais celle-ci s’est finalement avéré provenir d’une contamination. Jusqu’ici, le bilan n’était donc pas très prometteur. Aujourd’hui, pourtant, de nouveaux résultats publiés dans la revue PLoS ONE relancent les espoirs des scientifiques. En effet, selon ces analyses, des échantillons de glace récoltés contiendraient l’ADN de pas moins de 3.507 organismes assez diverses. Il s’agirait pour la majorité de bactéries mais d’autres organismes unicellulaires et multicellulaires comme des champignons y figureraient également. Une diversité qui surprend les scientifiques. “Nous avons trouvé bien plus de complexité que quiconque pensait”, a commenté le Dr Scott Rogers, biologiste à la Bowling Green State University dans l’Ohio. De minuscules créatures survivantes Selon l’étude, les séquences génétiques découvertes appartiendraient à des organismes extrêmophiles qui aiment le froid et sont capables de survivre, comme leur nom l’indique, dans les conditions extrêmes qui règnent dans le lac. Mais les scientifiques ont également identifié des séquences ADN et ARN appartenant à des animaux, de petites créatures marines telles que des mollusques et des crustacés. “Les organismes que nous trouvons sont dans une gamme très très petite. Ce sont de petites créatures minuscules”, a ajouté Rogers cité par LiveScience. “Les séquences suggèrent qu’un environnement complexe pourrait exister dans le lac Vostok. Des séquences indiquant des organismes issus d’environnements aquatique, marin, sédimentaire et glacé étaient présentes dans la glace. En plus, une autre proportion majeure de séquences provenaient d’organismes qui sont symbiotes d’animaux et/ou de plantes”, écrivent les auteurs dans leur étude. Mais cette vie est bien moins concentrée qu’elle ne l’est dans d’autres systèmes de lac, soulignent-ils. La concentration en cellules s’est avérée particulièrement faible, poussant le scientifique a affirmé : “Si le [lac Vostok] abrite de la vie, c’est de la vie intéressante mais elle n’est pas hautement concentrée”.Des organismes qui se sont lentement adaptés “Il y a 35 millions d’années, le lac Vostok était ouvert à l’atmosphère et entouré par un écosystème forestier. A ce moment-là, le lac contenait probablement un réseau complexe d’organismes. Jusqu’à il y a 15 millions d’années, les portions du lac n’étaient pas couvertes de glace, du moins pas tout le temps. Les organismes étaient donc probablement déposés dans le lac”, a expliqué le scientifique. Les changements de conditions s’étant faits lentement, les chercheurs supposent que les organismes ont eu le temps de s’adapter alors que le lac passait d’un système terrestre à un système subglaciaire. Néanmoins, comment être sûr que les organismes découverts ne viennent pas encore d’une contamination ? Pour éliminer ce risque, les chercheurs ont utilisé une nouvelle technique qui comprend un lavage à l’eau de javel, une fonte, un nettoyage et une recongélation de la glace. “La contamination est toujours une préoccupation mais nous pensons que les méthodes que nous avons développées assurent que toute contamination externe a été éliminée”, a indiqué Rogers.Une vie tenaceÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Au vu des résultats obtenus, le scientifique et ses collègues comptent donc bien poursuivre les recherches en menant d’autres analyses ADN sur des échantillons de glace supplémentaires. Celle testée dans cette étude était âgée d’entre 5.000 et 10.000 ans et a été récoltée dans les années 1990 alors que les Russes progressaient dans le forage du lac Vostok. Or, l’équipe du Dr Rogers estime que la partie superficielle du lac est la zone active de l’environnement.”Au fur et à mesure que vous allez plus loin dans le lac, le compte de cellules chute réellement. Nous voulons trouver ce qu’il y a à cet endroit et comment c’est capable d’y vivre. La vie semble trouver un moyen de survivre à peu près partout où on peut aller sur Terre”, a noté le Dr Rogers. Nos résultats “montrent vraiment la ténacité de la vie, et comment des organismes peuvent survivre à des endroits où nous pensions il y a une douzaine d’années que rien ne pouvait y survivre”.  Une telle découverte n’a pas que de l’importance sur Terre puisqu’elle renforce l’espoir de trouver des formes de vie sur d’autres planètes qui présentent souvent des conditions tout aussi voire plus extrêmes. “Les limites de ce qui est habitable et de ce qui ne l’est pas sont en train de changer”, a ainsi conclu le Dr Rogers.Le 9 juillet 2013 à 14:26 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Burned remains IDd as fugitive excop Dorner

first_imgBIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. — Officials said Thursday that the burned remains found in a California mountain cabin have been positively identified as fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner.Jodi Miller, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County sheriff-coroner, said the identification was made through Dorner’s dental records.Miller did not give a cause of death.The search for Dorner began last week after authorities said he had launched a deadly revenge campaign against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing, warning that he would bring “warfare” to LAPD officers and their families.The manhunt brought police to Big Bear Lake, 80 miles east of Los Angeles, where they found Dorner’s burned-out pickup truck abandoned. His footprints disappeared on frozen soil and hundreds of officers who searched the area and checked out each building failed to find him.Five days later, but just a stone’s throw from a command post authorities had set up in the massive manhunt, Karen and Jim Reynolds said they came face to face with Dorner inside their cabin-style condo.The couple said Dorner bound them and put pillowcases on their heads. At one point, he explained that he had been there for days.last_img read more

Winter shelter program offers day service

first_imgVancouver’s homegrown response to overnight winter-weather homelessness will try warming up some daytimes, too.Winter Hospitality Overflow and other homeless shelters offer help for homeless people.o Call 360-695-9677 for help.o The Winter Hospitality Overflow program runs November through March.o On the Web: Visit the websites of the Council for the Homeless or Winter Hospitality OverflowFor the past decade, the Winter Hospitality Overflow — known as the WHO — has marshaled thousands of volunteers at two local Lutheran church sites, St. Andrew and St. Paul, to house homeless people who can’t squeeze into regular shelters as the weather goes bad. St. Andrew, in Orchards, is open to families, couples and single women while St. Paul, in downtown Vancouver, is open only to single men. The WHO season has been Nov. 1 through March 31 every year since 2003.All that time, WHO clients have packed up and been sent on their way every morning. Sister agency Share Vancouver offers a daytime homeless outreach program that features showers, laundry, mailboxes and other services at its downtown Share House, but the overall size and scope of that program have shrunk since budget cuts hit it in 2010. Also, Share House is a few blocks from St. Paul, but a good eight miles from St. Andrew.o What: “Night of Song and Praise,” fundraiser for the Winter Hospitality Overflow.o When: 7 p.m. Nov. 8.o Where: St. John’s Catholic Church, 8701 N.E. 119th St.o Tickets: Free, but a collection for the WHO will be taken.o Performing: Local praise groups and Bridgetown, the men’s vocal group from Warner Pacific College.“Every morning during the winter, our families with children have no place to go,” said WHO organizer Kevin Hiebert.Now, the WHO has found a partner willing to offer up some daytime space for those St. Andrew clients. That partner is The Giving Closet, a charity that distributes free clothing and other help to very low-income people. It’s a relatively low-profile agency with a big warehouse at 2804 N.E. 65th Ave. That’s about three miles from St. Andrew church at 5607 N.E. Gher Road.The Giving Closet has “this wonderful warehouse space that they currently use for their GED program, but they weren’t using it too much during the daytime,” Hiebert said.last_img read more

Nicaragua canal threatens jaguars other endangered species study finds

first_imgThe planned trans-oceanic canal in Nicaragua could spell disaster for jaguars and other large mammals, according to a new study by researchers at conservation groups Panthera and Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC) and Michigan State University.The study, released in the scientific journal PLOS ONE, found that the planned canal route would cut through a critical biological corridor, putting a number of endangered species at risk.“What is of most concern to us is one of the areas under the greatest threat is where the canal is going to go,” said Roberto Salom, the Mesoamerican coordinator for Panthera’s jaguar program. “In this middle portion of the country, it is critical to have another stepping stone for the jaguars to travel from north to south.”The study is the only comprehensive investigation into the potential impacts of the canal on terrestrial wildlife.Though construction on the $50 billion venture is slated to begin this fall, environmental groups say the canal’s backers have failed to produce a comprehensive study on the waterway’s affects on biodiversity.The company building the canal, the Hong Kong Nicaragua Development Group (HKND), released an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) in November, but it failed to include a comprehensive biodiversity study looking at threats to wildlife. HKND’s plan to mitigate environmental harm has not been made public.A controversial projectFor as long as outsiders have been arriving at the shores of Lake Nicaragua, they have dreamed of funneling ships through it to interconnect the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Spanish conquistadores first wrote about the possibility in the 1500s, and their ambitions were later taken up by wealthy businessmen and even the U.S. government. But each time the plans were derailed: by civil wars, lack of funding, or fears of Nicaragua’s active volcanoes.Many predict that the new canal plan, backed by Chinese billionaire Wang Jing and his newly formed Hong Kong Nicaragua Development Group, will meet a similar end. Wang, a telecommunications tycoon, has never spearheaded a construction project, let alone the largest civil engineering endeavor the world has ever seen. Last year, Wang also reportedly lost 80 percent of his fortune after a crash in the Chinese stock market.Some economists dispute the financial viability of the project, questioning whether shipping companies would choose the new Nicaraguan canal over the nearby Panama Canal. And the project’s own ESIA states that there may not be enough water to even operate within the 175-mile waterway.Despite these questions, HKND and the Nicaraguan government insist that the project will go forward. A man digs sand from the Brito River, the planned starting point for the interoceanic Nicaragua Canal. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico TimesA rushed Environmental and Social Impact Assessment?The ESIA commissioned by HKND was completed in less than two years by the British firm Environmental Resources Management. ERM officials described the schedule as “aggressive,” and were unable to go beyond baseline studies — typically conducted before a project is even put into consideration. In the case of the Nicaraguan canal, ERM was asked to do the work after the canal had already been approved for construction.In general practice, baseline studies conducted upfront are followed by additional studies carried out by a project’s backers in order to design an effective environmental mitigation plan.While HKND is now funding additional investigations into the canal’s feasibility, the company has not indicated if it plans to look further at the canal’s impacts on biodiversity.As a result, environmental groups have grown increasingly worried over the lack of wildlife research in the planning process. They note that there are still many missing pieces of information for formulating an effective plan to reduce environmental impacts.The Nicaraguan government continues to push the canal, despite these complaints from the scientific and environmental communities. In November, the government approved the ESIA, with canal spokesman Telémaco Talavera saying: “the final net balance from the economic, social, and environmental perspective is absolutely positive for Nicaragua.” Nicaragua’s proposed canal route. (Screengrab from the “Proyecto de Desarrollo Integral del Gran Canal de Nicaragua”)The bigger biodiversity pictureWhile ERM’s biodiversity studies were restricted narrowly to the canal zone, the new mammal study examined wildlife populations in a wider area: the entire northeastern section of Nicaragua. This remote region would experience the largest impact from the canal, and has long been considered the country’s wildlife stronghold.Using camera traps, researchers tracked eight species of mammals including the jaguar (Panthera onca), white-lipped peccary (Tayassu pecari) and Baird’s tapir (Tapirus bairdii) — all endangered in Nicaragua.The study concluded that an artificial lake used to fill the canal would flood most of the remaining habitat for the three endangered species. The researchers also cautioned that the canal would create a barrier separating the mammal populations of the southern portion of Central America from those in the north, hindering genetic mixing.“You’re in effect creating these habitat islands,” Wes Sechrest, chief scientist at Global Wildlife Conservation said. “In the long term, you will have reduced gene flow, which can create all kinds of problems.”To reduce the canal’s impact, the study recommends moving the artificial lake’s currently planned location, and putting in small islands between which animals could move. The study also urges HKND to make a strong commitment to protecting the remaining forests in the region and to establishing mechanisms for animals to cross over canal infrastructure.The study scientists are not the only experts to deem HKND’s ecological mitigation plans inadequate. According to a report by an independent panel at Florida International University, which reviewed sections of the ESIA before it was finalized, the risk of extinction to endangered species in Nicaragua was not considered at all.“We are talking about one of the biggest infrastructure projects in the history of the planet, so we would hope that if it does go forward that these recommendations would be taken seriously,” Sechrest said. “The ideal situation is that the canal is not constructed, but if there is no mitigation, this would be the end of the Nicaraguan [wildlife] corridor.” A man casts his fishing net near the banks of Lake Nicaragua as Concepción Volcano looms in the background. Lake Nicaragua, the largest drinking water reservoir in Central America, would make up the center of Nicaragua’s planned interoceanic canal. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico TimesStaving off a biodiversity disasterWhile the canal’s potential for ecological damage is great, some believe that it could provide an opportunity to slow the environmental degradation that already grips Nicaragua.Even without the canal, farmers in Nicaragua’s east are already encroaching on protected areas and deforesting the region at a rapid pace. If the current rate of deforestation continues, biologists predict that the most important of these protected lands will be lost within the next several decades.“The environmental disaster [envisioned] along the proposed route is already underway,” wrote Jeffery McCrary, a fish biologist who worked on the ERM study, in an article for Nature in support of the canal. “We saw the destroyed rivers and wetlands, and vast expanses of pastures which maps designate as forests, and we were appalled.”According to McCrary and other like-minded scientists, proper canal management could work to preserve what little is left of Nicaragua’s protected forests. Money from the project could pay for proper policing of nature reserves, and to reforest areas that have been clear-cut. Though mitigation measures — adding security for nearby protected areas and reducing deforestation surrounding the canal — are listed in HKND’s plans, the company has not yet earmarked funds or released specific strategies to implement them.“I do think things can be done to mitigate this [environmental damage] and make sure that the corridor is not lost,” Panthera’s Salom said. “But we would need a lot more support to guarantee that, and we have seen very little interest from the government or the canal company.”This story was originally published on May 9 on Mongabay.

Five unexpected stopover destinations to add to a longhaul flight

first_imgFive unexpected stopover destinations to add to a long-haul flightWith a flight time of 20+ hours to favourite northern hemisphere destinations, Australians are accustomed to a Singapore or Hong Kong stopover. But with new visa-free transit hubs, fresh flight routes and competitive deals all on offer, plane doors are opening up to less-trodden, unexpected cities, allowing locals see more for less.Nathan Graham, Regional Sales Manager at Cheapflights ANZ, said: “Cheapflights data shows that the majority (82 per cent) of Aussies opt for destinations more than seven hours away, making a stopover inevitable.“Rather than resenting the wait, a well-planned stop means you can extend your holiday with a mini break and visit a popular destination for just a fraction of the usual cost. Think Honolulu, which has seen a 93 per cent increase in searches year-on-year, or Sydney’s number one destination in Asia Pacific, China.”To help inspire your next trip, Cheapflights.com.au has identified five emerging stopover cities that will get locals in the holiday vibe before arriving at their final destination: Shanghai, China – Instead of the traditional stop in Singapore, embark on a Chinese adventure. ChinaEastern Airlines connects Sydney and Melbourne with five major cities in western Europe via its Shanghai base. And the 144-hour visa free transit for Australian passport holders is a great incentive to explore the city – from the iconic riverfront boardwalk ‘The Bund’ to Old Shanghai.Doha, Qatar – Consider swapping Dubai for a stay in Doha. If you fly with Qatar Airlines from now until 30 September, you can also score one free night at a local four or five-star hotel. The online transit visa application allows between five and 96 hours in the country – just enough time to experience a desert safari, boat cruise along Corniche Bay, or visit the Museum of Islamic Arts.Delhi, India – Air India flights now transit through New Delhi, to connect Melbourne and Sydney withLondon and nine other European cities. Delve into the colour and chaos of this vibrant city, guaranteed to make the start of your holiday unforgettable. The Taj Mahal is a day trip in itself, and with more time up your sleeve you could also see the pink city of Jaipur (capital of Rajasthan).Honolulu, Hawaii – New York is clearly a top destination for Aussies with a 51 per cent spike in yearon-yearsearches via Cheapflights. But rather than the usual layover in Los Angeles, choose to start your holiday early by sipping cocktails on one of Hawaii’s famous beaches or embark on a hiking adventure to soak-up breathtaking views. It’s the perfect distance to break up your trip and enjoy some much-needed R&R before hitting the busy hub of NYC.Seoul, South Korea – Another destination that may not spring to mind is Seoul in South Korea. The free city tours, aka ‘Transit Tours’ provided by the airport, are a great way to see the city and you can take one that fits into your schedule (from one to six hours). For a longer stay, enjoy the city’s many attractions including a visit to the Gyeongbokgung Palace or traditional Bukchon Hanok Village, followed by a delicious Korean barbeque dining experience!For more information or to search for your next getaway, visit Cheapflights.com.au.Source = Cheapflights.comlast_img read more

Meet Paris’ ghostsA popular saying states that “Paris is a block of Swiss cheese”. Indeed, the underground of the French capital is full of holes, caverns and quarries from which were extracted the stones used to build its famous Haussmannian buildings. So when the cemeteries got a bit too crowded, the decision was easy: the “Catacombs” were set up and the remains of 6,000,000 Parisians were transferred in the capital’s caves. Since then, a small but impressive part of the galleries has been turned into a museum: a great way to get a glimpse of Paris’ History through the life of its former occupants.Les catacombes, Place Denfert Rochereau, 75014 Paris / M° Denfert Rochereau – 01 43 22 47 634. The temple of fine foodFact: France’s chefs are acclaimed all over the world. But aren’t they just poster boys, benefiting from the average Frenchman and woman’s passion for fine food? To understand this love story, go to the Grande Epicerie du Bon Marché, in the heart of the Quartier Latin. In this luxury store, food is considered as an art. From Champagne jam to Foie Gras-flavored cotton candy, all your senses will be blown away.

A greener ParisEver enjoyed a walk on the famous High Line in New York City? Well, did you know that it was inspired by the Parisian Promenade Plantée? What used to be a railroad track going from the Bastille train station (that became the Bastille Opera house) to the south-east suburbs has been turned into a fantastic green walk, seven metres above ground. Slaloming between the buildings, you’ll be delighted by the peaceful atmosphere that pervades the place.Promenade Plantée, accessible from the angle of Avenue Daumesnil and Rue de Lyon, 75012 Paris / M° Bastille or Reuilly-Diderot9. Architectural sightseeing on Rue RéaumurThere was a time where people were fed up with what seems to be Paris’ most appealing facet: its buildings. So in 1895, when the city council decided to drill a new street throughout the 2nd arrondissement, they briefed a bunch of hype architects and asked them to come up with some audacious edifices that would change from the good old Haussmannian style, with a prize for the best one. The result is a collection of Art Nouveau facades and early 20th century New York style iron structures. And if your neck gets too painful, go and have a break in one of the many cafés of the charming rue Montorgueil.Rue Réaumur, 75002 Paris / M° Bourse You won’t find it difficult to fill your days when you go to Paris for the first time. The City of Light is so full of ‘can’t miss’ places that it’ll feel like you’re on autopilot. But your second visit might get a bit trickier: once you’ve checked the likes of the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower off your to-do list, what’s left to do? François de la Taille takes the tour.1.

Man’s latest conquest: the banks of the River Seine, where cars are no longer welcome. What used to be an expressway has recently been turned into a walker’s dreamland: outdoor cafes lending board games, sundecks, vegetable gardens, playgrounds for kids, training facilities, and much more… 2.3km of tranquility in the very heart of this UNESCO world heritage site replacing 40.000 cars a day: Man 1- Machine 0.Left bank of the Seine, between Musée d’Orsay and Port du Gros Caillou, 75007 Paris / M° Invalides2.
