Pendant de nombreuses années, lorsqu'il était question d'organiser une soirée en amoureux ou en famille, une virée au club vidéo du coin était de mise. Tu te rappelles d'ailleurs probablement la sensation de passer au peigne fin des centaines de DVD pour trouver le film parfait.

Aujourd'hui, les options de divertissement sont infinies et très facilement accessibles. L'histoire d'amour du Canada avec tout ce qui touche au cinéma est si profonde qu'il existe même une date au calendrier pour la célébrer.

It's every Texan's dream to experience a winter in the way that many other states get to each year. Sitting around a fire roasting s'mores, going outside in gloves, scarves and boots, and even, ice skating outdoors. Houston is one city in Texas that's able to make these dreams come true, but you'll have to see it to believe it.

Starting on Friday, November 15 and lasting until Sunday, February 2, Discovery Green in Houston is transforming into an outdoor ice skating rink for all to enjoy. Their opening day will be one of celebration, with the first 50 skaters skating free, and the skate rental fee will be waived for every other skater! You'll want to dress for the occasion because it'll finally feel like winter in Texas.

A study published by Nature Geoscience, tells that a team of scientists have discovered a Molten lava river using satellite X-ray technology, flowing from Canada to Russia at 9,000 kms beneath the Earth’s surface. The stream of the liquid's temperature is similar to that of the sun and is approximately 420 km in width. It is moving more than 40 km per year - hundreds of thousands of times faster than Earth's tectonic plates. The movement is described by a lead researcher Dr.Phil Livermore,  as "an accelerating band of molten iron circling the North Pole, like the jet stream in the atmosphere." 

The finding of this jet will help scientists become more familiar with the the earth's core. With the help of the European Space Agency’s Swarm, satellites are providing the sharpest images of the molten lava river running beneath the surface like never before. Ultimately, researchers and scientists hope that with this discovery, they'll be able to figure out what it is exactly, that generates the planet's magnetic field.
