⇒ Hi Guillaume! So, can you introduce yourself to those who don’t know you yet?
Hi! Of course!
My name is Guillaume Colin, I am a GCC student and the Material Manager of the BDSM.
⇒ And you are also a high level athlete, aren’t you?
Yeah, in rock climbing, I won the University French Championships and I participated in a World Cup in Chamonix last year.
⇒ So, can you tell us about the BDSM, what are the purposes of this organization?
The BDSM was founded by Thomas Bioud and Marylou Pellerin, which are currently president and vice-president of the office.
The idea of creating this organization emerged in the spring of 2018 :
the main goal was to provide the opportunity for students to meet new people and to go hiking, skiing and climbing around Grenoble.
We recruited the office’s members in the different sections of Polytech, and we started the administrative steps quickly, so that the association could be ready for the school startin September 2018.
The other purpose of the BDSM is the equipment loan : we provide members with mountain equipment.
The school management was rather against this idea, mainly for responsability’s reasons, that’s why I made a training, provided by the FFME (French Federation of Mountain and Climbing), in order to be able to manage the material.
⇒ Can you tell us about the events you have already organized, and those you planned to organize?
The first event we oragnized was an aperitif at the top of the Moucherotte, over the 60 participants, 50 of them took their BDSM membership after this event.
We also organized a DVA (Detecting and Locating Avalanche Victims) formation.
For the end of the year, we plan to organize a barbecue at Fort St Eynard, and for the next year, we want to organize a week end in the Callanques with the collaboration of Polytech Marseille!
⇒ Okay, thank you for your time and I wish you all the best for your exams!
Today I will show you how to make a simple paper plane that flies well !
First you need a classic sheet of paper, place it in front of you vertically and then fold it in half vertically.
Next, you have to unfold the paper and to fold the corners into the center, as shown below.
Fold the top right edge to the center.

Job’s done, all that remains is to test it !
You can find a large variety of paper plane with folding instructions, video tutorials on https://www.foldnfly.com.

It is a particular superhero movie, it does not look like a Marvel movie it is closer to a thriller.

After finding him, the two characters are unfortunately arrested by the police and the are locked in a mental hospital, the same hospital in which Elijah Price is interned.
