  11. Pour rappel : Au deuxi?me tour ne sont admis que les deux candidants ayant obtenu le plus de voix au premier tour. Si l'on croit les sondages effectu?s, cinq candidats obtiendront plus de 10% des votes et les cinq autres se contenteront de moins de 2%. Tout en accordant le respect n?cessaire ? l'esprit olympique ("l'important, c'est de participer"), je ne vois pas l'utilit? des cinq candidats tr?s nettement distanc?s ? vouloir participer au premier tour (? part si les sondages ne repr?sentent pas les ind?cis comme moi-m?me). Ca n'a tout simplement pas de sens - ils feraient mieux d'investir leur temps et leur ?nergie dans les mandants qu'ils exercent d?j? ! A quoi bon de recueillir 500 parainages d'?lus pour de maigres 0.5% d'intentions de vote...
  12. Les cinq ou six candidats sans chance d'?tre admis au second tour devraient d?s maintenant se retirer de la course ? la pr?sidentielle et mobiliser leurs ?lecteurs ? voter pour un des quatre ou cinq candidats avec une chance r?aliste de pouvoir passer au second tour.</description></item>
  13. <item><title>News September 19th, 2011</title><link></link><description>I had the opportunity to attend my first ice hockey match on Saturday evening featuring the SC Langnau Tigers against the HC Lugano. It was quite impressive, although I had thought that the so-called atmosphere would be more catching. The game is so damned fast - maybe too fast for me. I missed the replays I'm used to on TV. And the brutality of the players and the game itself is awful. I'd never seen the Ilfis Halle when it's in "hockey dress" before. It was alright because it was still summer, but I don't know if I could bear it in winter. Anyway Langnau eventually won 4:3 after starting with 1:3 into the last round. The audience was pleased.</description></item>

  15. The lives of US soldiers at war are now in danger for the first time ever because wikileaks released around 400'000 documents from the Iraq war, US foreign minister Hillary Clinton claims. Maybe they shouldn't have gone to war in the first place.
  16. Gas is becoming a scarce resource in France because the lazy beans will have to work until the age of 62 before going to pension. There still is spare oil to be collected from the residues of the Deep Water Horizon leaks in Mississippi...
  17. The SCL Tigers won 9:1 against Lugano in the Swiss Hockey National League A.</description></item>

Assembled by hand from various pictures I took during our trip to the capital of France in July 2009, it shows the small Arc de Triomphe, the glass pyramid and the side wings of the gigantic museum. </description></item>

  20. It's shameful for a democratic country to globally ban the Islamic religious expression in its constitution. The proposal doesn't forbid the building of mosques or other religious temples - only minarets. However, it shows how narrow minded voters are and how very little diplomatic feeling they have.
  21. As an atheist, I must confess that I am way more bothered by christian churches and their bells than by any minaret.
  22. It would be interesting to see how much damage Muslims could inflict to the Swiss banking system if they would draw back all their money from Swiss banks - and how much political damage this decision inflicts to Switzerland on the international level.</description></item>
