Here’s The Difference In Career Prospects Between People Who Did And Didn’t Go To College
Not convinced that going to college makes a difference?  This chart from JPMorgan should dispel any notion of that. The difference in terms of both unemployment and salary between college grads and those with less education is remarkable.

The Jobs With the Highest Obesity Rates
Strangely, people who work in healthcare tend to be less healthy than others. Employers want their workers to be healthy—both for insurance-cost and humane reasons—but aspects of those very jobs can make workers sick.

Southsiders present: Wheels & Waves - second edition from Douglas Guillot on Vimeo.

The official video of the second edition of the Wheels & Waves.

Why did we bring together motorcycles and surfing for a second event ?
A question that we are often being asked.
The answer lies in the notion of freedom that is drawn from these two disciplines - and the resulting danger and adrenaline that are two significant and common reactions.
“Riding” is addictive, we are in need of this vital energy.
Wheels and Waves is a unique opportunity for us to gather and share our passions in a stunning region and environment.
We’ve loved making and living this event, the story is far from over as we imagine new surprises for the next edition.

See you soon!

pourquoi avoir tenté d’associer pour la deuxième fois les motos et le surf ?
c’est une question qui nous est régulièrement posée. La réponse réside dans la notion de liberté
qui se dégage de ces deux disciplines, la mise en danger et l’adrénaline qui en découle sont deux aspects
communs non négligables. Rider est addictif. nous avons besoin de cette énergie vitale.
Wheels and Waves est une occasion unique de nous retrouver et de partager nos passions dans un cadre et une région facinante.
Nous avons aimé construire et vivre cet événement, l’aventure est loin d’être terminée, nous nous devons d’imaginer une suite
toujours plus surprenante, A bientôt!

Wheels & Waves x Loser Machine from Douglas Guillot on Vimeo.

In Europe, the winter can seem unending, the time of year when we are
consigned to dwell interminably in our garages, neon lights may be bright
but they can never truly replicate sunlight…
But there is a cure, we have been planning an end of winter trip to the
Basque country since last summer with our friend Fede at Loser Machine and Bixente, a ride for a Wheels and Waves 2013 reunion.
A band of brothers, 20 in all. However with the unpredictable
seasonal conditions we are taking a gamble, but still we have ploughed
through all conditions before and shall do again.
The ride is a total of 240km, and we are planning it for June, so it should
be perfect riding : A combination of beautiful nature and a rare
countryside found in these traditional lands, far from the polluted towns
and cities that so many of us are forced to call home. Mountains are found
in abundance as are the twists on the long empty stretches of road, which
are themselves much like racing circuits, in short, a dreamlike wonderland.
Anybody who loves bikes will get that longed for Endorphin rush and a
heavenly bike connection.
_____________________________________

L’hiver est long en Europe, la période ou nous restons calfeutrés dans nos
garages parait interminable, les néons ne remplaceront jamais le soleil…
Nous avions cependant planifié à la fin de l’été dernier avec nôtre ami Fede de Loser Machine et Bixente, un ride au pays Basque à la fin de l’hiver, ayant pour but de faire un repérage pour Wheels & Waves
2013.
Nous avons réuni un groupe d’amis, une vingtaine au total, les conditions
météos étant difficilement prévisibles en cette saisonnous prenions un certain risque, nous avons rencontré à peu près tout ce que
l’on peut imaginer en matière de météo.
le ride de 240Km que nous allons vous proposer en Juin est quasiment parfait à mes yeux, beaucoup de nature, peu d’agglomérations,de la montagne, des virages par milliers, des route côtières semblables à
des circuits, bref un terrain de jeu sensationnel ou chacun trouvera l’endorphine vitale, la justification même de la moto.
Vivement Juin.

Text : Lise Beuve

Ores-group, Nicolas Guittard, Julien Boulard, Stanislas Giroux, Nancy El Bahrawi, Julien Scussel, Anaïs Deféver, Jonathan Cj Tassin, Ewald Wilson, and all my friends and my family.

Narration :
There is a light that never goes out. It dwells deep inside us, giving us motivation and shaping our path.
That light is the flicker of creation.
The spark of an idea.
The outline of a design.
It is the desire that stokes our passions and makes us strive to go further.
This internal fire feeds our dreams and puts a glint in our eye.
It is the energy that ignites our creativity.
It tills the land.
It shapes and gives life to the medium being crafted.
Every creation is imbued with the being that created it, as if the medium is breathing in the spirit of the craftsman.
Isn’t that the most beautiful way of leaving a trace of our existence, of our time on this earth?
To create is the only way to traverse time, to wander through the ages.
It is the only way to become immortal, to be infinite.
If this light goes out, we die.
—————————————
Il est une lumière qui ne meurt jamais.
Elle sommeille en chacun, nous anime et dessine nos chemins.
Elle est l’étincelle de la création.
L’éclair d’une idée…
L’esquisse d’un projet.
C’est l’envie qui nourrit les passions et nous pousse à aller toujours plus loin.
C’est cette petite flamme que l’on peut voir dans les yeux de chacun et qui nourrit nos rêves.
C’est l’énergie qui embrase notre créativité, anime nos mains de démiurge, travaille la terre et la matière pour lui donner forme, pour lui donner vie.
Chaque oeuvre est imprégnée de l’être qui l’a créé, comme si la matière, enfermait en son sein une bribe de spiritualité.
N’est-ce pas là, la plus belle manière de laisser une trace de notre existence, de notre passage sur cette terre ?
Créer est le seul moyen de traverser le temps, de vagabonder à travers les âges, de devenir immortel, d’être infini.
Si cette lumière s’éteint, nous mourrons.
