‘I used to hate road cycling, now I design biking gear’

The BBC’s weekly The Boss series profiles different business leaders from around the world. This week we speak to Remi Clermont, co-founder and co-owner of cycling clothing company Cafe du Cycliste.

When Remi Clermont was a teenager, he was embarrassed that his father liked going road cycling.

By road cycling, he means riding around on the type of bike you see in the Tour de France – “drop handlebars” that sweep downwards, and thin tyres.

Despite Remi being born and raised in the Alsace region of eastern France, and road biking being one of the country’s most popular sports, his young self just didn’t like it.

“My friends and I, all the kids, were into mountain biking at the time (the early 1990s),” says the 44-year-old. “Road biking was seen as very boring. I was almost ashamed when I told friends that my dad was into it.”

Remi loved cycling

Game theory not chaos rules the Trump White House. Let’s no longer play

The Trump presidency is often billed as a phenomenon born from chaos.

It arrived in a flurry of tweets, online beefs and the sound of rules and norms bending and snapping like fragile floorboards under a listing democracy. But make no mistake: The strategy of this White House — and the culture it has sought to embolden — is anything but random.

Posting wild conspiracy theories one minute, racist phraseology the next — and then acting as if Trump’s initial choice of Juneteenth for his latest rally made the day that now commemorates the end of slavery “famous” rather than being a blatant swipe of disrespect — is all part of a strategy that relies on obnoxious, overwhelming online bullying, and pulls from an insidious corner

Where can I buy an at-home coronavirus test and how much does one cost?

As coronavirus testing has ramped up across the country, some companies have made it possible for the average American to adminster a test from the comfort of their own home.

At home tests are approved by the Food and Drug Administration and are performed either by nasal swab or saliva collection.

Below are some of the companies who offer at-home coronavirus tests and how much each one costs:


Pixel by LabCorp

Pixel by LabCorp offers an at-home coronavirus test kit for $119, but those who are eligible may be able to get it at no upfront cost either through their insurance plan or through funding from the federal government.

To order a test kit, customers are asked to take an online survey which will ask you questions on symptoms you are feeling related to COVID-19. The test

Biden’s $80.8 Million Outpaced Trump’s Fundraising in May

Joe Biden, whose campaign had long struggled to raise money, zoomed past President Donald Trump’s fundraising machine in May for the first time, pulling in $80.8 million together with the Democratic National Committee, about 10% more than the $74 million Trump raised with the Republican Party.

It was a reversal of fortunes for the former vice president and a testament both to his growing support among small donors — more than half his donors in May were new to the campaign — and the advantages of his first full month of fundraising in concert with the DNC, in chunks of up to $620,000 per donor.

The $80.8 million that Biden raised was roughly one-third more than he raised in April, when Trump edged him slightly. The campaigns took in a total of nearly $155 million in May — about $5 million per day — despite a health and economic crisis

10 mind-boggling and unhinged moments from Trump’s Tulsa rally

10 mind-boggling and unhinged moments from Trump’s Tulsa rally

Donald Trump’s first 2020 campaign rally in Tulsa, Okla. was jam-packed with a slew of confusing, cringe-worthy moments.

For those who didn’t watch live, the rally took place on Saturday night at the city’s Bank of Oklahoma Center. It’s also worth noting that it was held in the middle of a global pandemic, against the advice of medical professionals.

The president and attendees didn’t seem to be fazed by the threat of COVID-19, though. Social distancing was not strictly enforced in the arena, and few people were seen wearing masks – including Trump. But if you thought the lack of concern over health and safety would be the only newsworthy revelation to come out of this event, you’re wrong.

From rows and rows of empty seats, to careless comments about the coronavirus, Confederate monuments, protesters, and more, here are 10 of

What’s the Difference and What Do They Do?

Dietician and nutritionist are often used interchangeably to refer to someone who works in the healthcare industry, specifically with regards to diet, food and eating habits. Though both are considered nutritional experts, these two professions have distinct qualifications that set them apart including education, certification and clinical experience. A registered dietician (RD) is federally regulated and requires specific and ongoing proof of credentials. A nutritionist, on the other hand, is much less standardized, meaning accreditation can vary from state to state and even region to region.

To help us learn more, we reached out to Brian St. Pierre MS, RD, CSCS and director of nutrition at Precision Nutrition, a digital coaching and certification platform.

What Is a Dietician?

Simply put, a dietician is an expert on diet and its effects on our health and wellbeing. Dieticians are licensed to assess, diagnose and treat nutritional problems, including chronic diseases like diabetes
