Saphon Energy Story


 


Une révolution dans le domaine de la production d’énergie grâce à «Saphonian». Une invention qui permet de produire de l’énergie électrique issue du vent, et donc une énergie propre, a été développée entièrement par la société tunisienne Saphon Energy sise à El Manar 2, dans la banlieue de Tunis.

La problématique de la génération du courant électrique n’est pas née hier. Depuis des années, de nombreuses recherches ont été établies pour développer de nouvelles sources d’énergie non polluantes, qui pourront substituer aux générateurs thermiques. Fonctionnant au pétrole, ces derniers sont en effet extrêmement nocifs pour l’environnement et ne seront plus fiables dans le futur. Le nucléaire, grandement utilisé durant le 20ème siècle, subit un déclin récemment à cause du grand danger que représentent les déchets radioactifs. C’est donc surtout l’énergie éolienne et l’énergie solaire qui se sont imposées comme les énergies du futur.

Beautiful Monaco – Monte Carlo City Center



Monte Carlo (literally “Mount Charles“) is situated on a prominent escarpment at the base of the Maritime Alps along the French Riviera. Near the western end of the quarter is the world-famous Place du Casino, the gambling center which has made Monte Carlo “an international byword for the extravagant display and reckless dispersal of wealth.”[1] It is also the location of the Hôtel de Paris, the Café de Paris, and the Salle Garnier (the casino theatre which is the home of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo). The eastern part of the quarter includes the community of Larvotto with Monaco’s only public beach, as well as its new convention center (the Grimaldi Forum), and the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. At its eastern border one crosses into the French town of Beausoleil (sometimes referred to as Monte-Carlo-Supérieur), and just 5 miles (8 km) further east is the western border of Italy.

10km Swimming Marathon to Set Olympic Record‎


Tunisia‘s Oussama Mellouli survived a late surge from his rivals to win the men’s 10km swimming marathon on Friday and become the first person to hold Olympic titles in both pool and open water races.

Mellouli broke clear at the start of the last lap and clung on in the final stages to hold off Germany‘s Thomas Lurz and Richard Weinberger of Canada.

The Tunisian, who also came third in the 1500m freestyle on Sunday, finished 3.4sec ahead of Lurz in a superb time of 1hr 49min 55.1sec at a sun-soaked Hyde Park.

World champion Spyridon Gianniotis of Greece finished just outside the medals in fourth place, with Great Britain’s Daniel Fogg fifth.

Mellouli’s victory represented yet another milestone for the pioneering 28-year-old.

In 2008 in Beijing, three months after returning from an 18-month doping ban, he became the first African man to win an Olympic gold swimming medal when he topped the podium in the 1500m freestyle.

He is the second man to have tasted victory in the Olympic open water swimming marathon, after Dutchman Maarten van der Weijden won the inaugural event in Beijing four years ago.

Mellouli also collected a bronze in the 1500m at these Games last weekend.

“I don’t think this has ever been done before. This is probably one of the toughest things to do,” he said

Such a touching fluff about the struggles for John in early life leading up to 2010 & then his successes of making the 2011 World team. I had tears in my eyes watching this.
