• I have chosen this article because this is an experience that has never been realized before.

    First, the project, concluded with a team of scientists, was to make a jump in the stratosphere at a height of 36,600 m at the start of a capsule suspended from a helium balloon with the intention of being the first parachutist breaking the sound barrier.


    Then, after two jumps tests and a cancelled attempt, he succeeded, on October the fourteenth 2012 at 5:31 French time, to beat four records :

    - altitude record for a balloon flight inhabited 

    - the highest jump record in the world at 39,045 m 

    - free fall record with 36,529 m

    - to break the sound barrier in free fall.

    Finally, Baumgartner opened his parachute himself and this new "record" should therefore be approved (till then it was detained by Kittinger). Indeed, in 1960, Kittinger’s record wasn’t  registered since its free fall was stopped automatically by the emergency shutdown. 

    Here’s a video of his jump Josselin, 3F


  •  First, I chose Rihanna because she is my favourite singer! In my opinion, I think Rihanna is the best because she sings very very well and she is very beautiful and nice.

     After that, Rihanna is a Barbados singer and dancing girl (she comes from Barbade, in South America). Her music style is R&B and pop music. I love Rihanna because I love R&B. In my opinion, R&B is the best music style because R&B is lively.

     Next, during concerts, she is kind with her fans and her public. She always smiles and she is always beautiful. She sings with her fans, signs many autographs, takes pictures and shakes hands or gives hugs.

     Then, Rihanna has got a big wardrobe! She has got a lot of dresses and her make-up is all the time perfect! Her jewells are very wonderful. Rihanna is crazy about tatoos and she has got many tatoos! She always changes her hairstyle.

     Finally, my choice is very understandable because Rihanna is my favourite singer. My favourite song is a new song named Diamonds. And I think Rihanna is  a humble person.

    I have chosen the “king’s cake” because I like it. I think it’s better than a chocolate cake.

    First, King’s cake is a cake celebrating the Epiphany. Today Epiphany means a Christian celebration that celebrates the  coming of Messiah in the world. It takes place on January the sixth or the first Sunday of January. This cake is traditionally sold and consumed a few days before and after this date.



    After that, King’s cake is a cake of puff pastry, just browned in the oven, eaten with jams. It can also be filled with almond, fruit, cream, chocolate... But there are also cakes with sandblasted pastry in the west. The King’s cake is a brioche with candied fruits. 




     Finally, King’s cake became an industrial product and has less and less of link with religion.

  • ‘Futuroscope’ amusement park


    I want to present this amusement park I visited during my holidays with my father.

    It was so great !

    First, ‘Futuroscope’ is a French theme parc based on multimedia. This park is in Poitiers, in the French department of Vienne. There are many 3D and 4D cinemas with other attractions and shows. We can find a lot of fast food restaurants. This park is one of the most visited in France with forty millions visitors since its opening in May the thirty-first in 1987.


     Then I want to present a fabulous attraction :

    ‘Dances with robots’ is the most dynamic attraction and to my mind the best. The room is about 1200 m²  : it contains ten robots.

    Each passenger chooses a robot and, before the dance, can choose between 3 levels (soft, intermediate or high). After that, the dances begins; each dance lasts one minute. It seems as the robot dances with you in its arms.



    After that, you can see what I mean, with this link.


    In addition to that, the soundscape is excellent because the music is from Martin Solveig, a famous DJ.

    I hope that everyone will be able to go to the futuroscope one day to test this wonderful attraction.
