Lyon 2011

2011 sera l’année de la maturité, le jardin végétal qui tranquillement poursuit sa vie naturelle sur les bords de la Seine prépare sa métamorphose et s’apprête à prendre le chemin de sa prochaine destination.

Les arbres ont grandi, les semis reprennent, les choix des essences, couleurs, odeurs, textures épousent une nouvelle histoire, celle d’une ville, d’un territoire, celle que Gad Weil et Laurence Medioni, sa scénographe, ont décidé d’inventer pour la ville des lumières pour la poser trois jours durant dans son cœur de vie.

LYON 17, 18 et 19 juin 2011

Nature Capitale Lyon rendra un hommage particulier aux arbres pour fêter l’Année Internationale des Forêts.

Running4Margo

just in case, you're looking for a good cause........here is a good exemple...

RUNNING FOR MARGO
On Facebook : www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=76734155943

When I registered for the Ironman triathlon in Lake Placid, I decided to run not only against time but make it truly worthwhile to swim 2.4 miles (3.86 km), bike 112 miles (180.25 km) and run a marathon (26.2 miles or 42.195 km) as well as the thousands miles of training this requires.
I will be “Running for Margo” in memory of my friends' daughter Margaux Blanc who passed away on Monday June 7th 2010. She was 14. Margo fought her cancer with remarkable courage. She never gave up. Until the end, she kept her cute smile and, unbelievably, remained more concerned about others than herself.
Following the lead of of her parents Patricia and Olivier, Running for Margo is a group of people spread all over the world that dedicate their racing and training efforts to never forget such a wonderful young girl and to share their accomplishments achieved in her Memory to help continue Margo's fight against cancer.

Margo had the courage but did not have the time, together and in time we will defeat cancer !

RESEARCH EFFORTS I AM SUPPORTING (http://www.igr.fr/en)
Institut Gustave Roussy - IGR, the leading European anticancer centre, assembles on the same site 2,500 men and women whose missions are to treat patients suffering from cancer, conduct research and develop new therapies, and to pass on knowledge and know-how to the medical and scientific communities in France, USA and worldwide.

YOUR HELP
I need your help to gather funds to support research conducted by Institut Gustave Roussy. In France and in USA your gift will be tax deductible in most cases.

Giving through this website in simple, takes a few minutes and 100% secured. Your gift will be transfer to IGR and you will immediately receive a gift receipt for tax purposes.

Make the triathlon mantra live: "Anything is Possible !"
Many thanks for your support!

I thank you very much for your donation to support research efforts of Institut Gustave Roussy.

I will be happy to share with you my race experience.

Schaller Romain
Dawn of a new age
The 21st century begins with man questioning his environment. From natural disasters, the evolution of the climate, and sprawlingurban development,ourrelationshipwithourplanet is rapidly changing. Through this series of abstract paintings I wanted to relay this universal thought, which springs from deep within all of us.
New York City perfectly illustrates this idea, thanks to actions of “planet NYC.” I want to believe that if the “capital of the world” would become the capital of the green world, we would beatthedawnofanewage.
Abstract painting enables me not to impose a way of thinking but to suggest a collective thought.
Romain Schaller

About Chautauqua

The Chautauqua Institution is a not-for-profit, 750-acre community on Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York State, where approximately 7,500 persons are in residence on any day during a nine-week season, and a total of over 170,000 attend scheduled public events.

Chautauqua is dedicated to the exploration of the best in human values and the enrichment of life through a program that explores the important religious, social and political issues of our times; stimulates provocative, thoughtful involvement of individuals and families in creative response to such issues; and promotes excellence and creativity in the appreciation, performance and teaching of the arts.

The Chautauqua experience is based around one’s engagement in four program areas:

The Arts

Chautauqua as a community celebrates, encourages and studies the arts and treats them as integral to all of learning. With symphony, opera, theater, dance, visual arts and a renowned music school, Chautauqua produces an "ecstatic mix" of programming that can be found nowhere else.

Education

Self-improvement through lifelong learning was at the heart of the impulse that motivated Americans and founded Chautauqua in 1874. That tradition continues today with a morning and afternoon lecture platform, continued education courses, the Chautauqua Literary & Scientific Circle book club, writers in residence, and a public library.

Religion

At Chautauqua, religious faith is perceived, interpreted and experienced as central to the understanding and expression of our social and cultural values. Chautauqua is a community that is open to all with a wide variety of services of worship and programs that express the Institution’s Christian heritage and its interfaith commitment.

Recreation

From adult to youth programs, Chautauqua has embraced the recreative experience and a healthy lifestyle as essential to the Chautauqua experience. Recreational opportunities include sailing, boating, fishing and swimming on Chautauqua Lake as well as a 36-hole golf course, fast-dry and hard-surface tennis courts, playing fields, playgrounds and fitness centers.
