Hab at Heart – Adonis Stevenson – Montréal Canadiens

Rapadoo Observateur

Since becoming the world champion in June 2011, many have tried to slow Adonis Stevenson down but failed time and again in their attempts to do so. Accustomed to being the main attraction on boxing cards hosted at the Bell Centre over the last few years, the 36-year-old feels privileged to have the opportunity to entertain spectators in the building that his favorite hockey team calls home. The canadiens.com crew met up the WBC Light Heavyweight champ to learn more about his love for all things CH.How long have you been a Habs fan?ADONIS STEVENSON: For a long time. I remember the Stanley Cup wins in 1986 and 1993. Those were back in the good old days of Patrick Roy and Guy Carbonneau. I’m old school. I remember watching Chris Nilan and Bob Gainey play. Sometimes, my mother would tell me to go to sleep because it was late, but…

…Know the Half of It

The Two-Woman Crusade

Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles-PosterFor fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there was such hope surrounding the release of their latest cinematic reincarnation.

The accurately named, « Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, » directed by Jonathan Liebesman, was meant to be the rebirth of the franchise.  Instead it comes up short of what it could have been.

In spite of early rumors (which may have been true, at some point) that the Turtles would be aliens in this rendition, they’re still mutants.  Although, aside from that small detail the film does take some unnecessary liberties with their story.

Expedia takes a page out of Hotel Tonight’s design book with its new app

Gigaom

Sometimes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. And sometimes that dog is Expedia and the new trick is design.

The travel giant has a brand new tablet app and it’s all about beauty. Perhaps the company took some inspiration from Pinterest and its far younger competitor Hotel Tonight. The app focuses on striking, large scenic visuals — “sensuality” as Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said at a launch event in San Francisco. The home screen of the new tablet app is a map with themed “collections” of cities: Cities that never sleep, romantic getaways, upcoming festivals.

“Travel is a sensual experience and travel planning is about as industrial an experience as you can get,” Khosrowshahi said. “We wanted to create an experience that befits travel.”

Blogue Trans-West

Petit, Éric rêvait de devenir camionneur comme le père de son ami. Il éprouvait un vif intérêt par rapport au camion, mais sa mère ne voulait pas que son fils devienne camionneur. Elle souhaitait mieux pour son avenir.

« Le métier était mal perçu à cette époque et les conditions de travail étaient moindres. Donc, j’ai travaillé dans la fibre de verre et j’ai fait un cours dans la préservation de la faune » raconte Éric. « C’était intéressant! Mais, monotone… Et, je n’aimais pas avoir constamment un patron sur le dos! »

Un jour, il en a assez et son désir de partir en quête de liberté et d’autonomie prend le dessus. Il décide finalement de faire le grand saut et conduire des camions. Au volant de son poids lourd, il s’épanouit comme jamais auparavant.
