What I liked most was to create my own ideas, but also to tell me that I could do things a little more crazy if I gave myself the means, not to have limits. I have created two three achievements, especially with my neighbor, which has given me the taste of organization, management, project creation.
I was fifteen years old, it was adolescence, the end of the college, the beginning of the high school.
At the end of the high school, you have to choose an orientation. I was advised to go to tourism, what I did: a BTS in animation and management of local tourism, in nantes. I discovered the heritage, the French Heritage, local, and what I liked more particularly, unusual. I did my studies in alternation, I always had this need to create, to move forward, to shape things.
I couldn't stay behind a school table for hours. At the end of my studies, a contract that had to be done was not done. I thought I was going to make a last big associative project. With my neighbor, we put a year to organize a fashion show: highlight the haute couture and make it accessible in the form of a show. We have organized everything, music, makeup, hairstyle, all in a gym at plessis grammoire.
A little crazy project We had to casting models, human resources, communication, accounting. It taught me for a year to touch to many things, to train and to learn from this experience. At the end of this adventure I'M 22 years old, I have my bts in pocket, and I think I'm really going to think about designing what I want to do.
I really liked the show "Rendez-vous in unknown land" on France 2. I thought it was interesting to keep the surprise, without judgment or a priori.

But I didn't want to leave angers or my region. That's why I created a concept that really looks like me: [Sibylline Escapade]. Jules Verne's contributions, on the other hand, deserve to be considered post-haste. What most strikes contemporary readers about the proto-science fiction stories that Verne situated in the United States is their alternately banal and prophetic realism. Les Forceurs de blocus, for instance, a work largely unknown in the English-speaking world, describes the efforts of a hard-headed Scottish capitalist to steer a high speed steamship 17 knots-per-hour past the Union gunboats blockading Charleston harbour.
gelatocottage.sg/includes/map9.php The ironically named Playfairs have nothing but scorn for abolitionists, dismissing them as " With their eyes set on the main prize of profits, the Playfairs are notably reluctant to admit " Even today, it is hard to find fictional writings that discuss the U. C i v i l War in less romantic, more pragmatic terms. The War Between the States is also one of the narrative engines propelling one of Verne's more famous speculative fictions, De la Terre a la Lune.
Even more than Vingt mille lieues sous les mers, this novel is replete with Verne's eerie powers of pre-cognition. The decision to send a vessel to the moon is determined by a group of retired C i v i l War artillerymen and industrialists, the nineteenth century forebears of what Dwight D. Eisenhower was to dub "the mil i tary-industrial complex," the matrix out of which N A S A emerged.
That Americans should be the first to invent space travel seemed perfectly logical to Verne: "Les Yankees, ces premiers mecaniciens du monde, sont ingenieurs, comme les Italiens sont musiciens et les Al lemands metaphysciens--de naissance" De la Terre a la Lune One of the more formidable of these ex-Union Army gunners is " In those passages, the author makes enormous leaps of historical fabulation.
At a time when the steam-driven power of England's industrial revolution still gave the United Kingdom pride of place as the workship of the world, Jules Verne was already passing on the world-controlling economic torch to the still-wet-behind-the-ears United States. What's more, he attributed that 28 triumph to America's inheritance of the most aggressive, puritan streak in British culture, the Round Head ferocity that led to the rise of Cromwell and the fall of the Stuarts.
Here, in embryo, we see the origins of the modern French usage of the phrase "les anglo-saxonnes" a description that implicitly fuses England and the United States into one seamless socio-historical entity, a body politic implicitly hostile to the interests of France, and one which is seemingly entirely detached from Canada, Australia, and the many other small nations comprising anglophonia. In this phrase we see admiration and realism locked in an eternal battle with paranoia, fear and hate.
Despite this theoretical projection, however, Verne's account reflects immense familiarity with the quotidian realities of contemporary American life. The trip to the moon is facilitated by the calculations of the observatory in Cambridge, Massachussetts, "Cette ville ou fut fondee la premiere Universite des Etats-Unis, est justement celebre par son bureau astronomique" De la Terre a la Lune Hans Pfaal, Edgar Allan Poe's fictional visitor to the Moon, is wittily treated as an historical personage much of this book was conceived as satire.
Most presciently of all, Verne describes the struggle between the states of Florida and Texas for the honour of being the lunar-directed launch site. Less than a hundred years later, when Apollo IX did indeed speed to the Moon, the rocket was of course fired from Cape Canaveral, Florida, while its pilots listened to commands from Mission Control in Houston, Texas!
What's more, the journey was completed in only slightly less time than the 11 days stipulated by Verne. The American passages in Le tour du monde en 80 jours might have been less imbued with prophecy, but they were no less 29 keen on logistical accuracy: "New York et San Francisco sont done presentement reunis par un ruban de metal non interrompu qui ne mesure pas moins de trois mille sept cent quarante-vingt-six milles" Le Tour du monde en 80 jours Within Verne's broad, "trunklike" descriptions lurk many lesser, "rootlike" details: "Ce wagon etait un 'sleeping car', qui, en quelques minutes, fut transforme en dortoir" Le Tour du monde en 80 jours What Phileas Fogg and his fellow passengers see from moving train windows is a country in the process of creating itself.
They " Only when describing encounters with Mormons and skirmishes with Sioux does Verne depart from the generally realistic tone of his text.
This unique mixture— fantastic plot coupled to extremely plausible detail—would lay the groundwork for the infant genre of science fiction, a genre that the French would shortly abandon, a popular form that would subsequently be perfected by les anglo-saxonnes in general and les Americains in particular. It is one of the abiding ironies of Franco-American relations that certain Gallic cultural innovations are subsequently regarded as quintessentially American—especially by the French. Where would the so-called Hollywood musical be, for instance, if not for the early sound films of Rene Clair?
For a variety of reasons, not all of them modest high culture est fait chez nous; popular culture est importe d'outre-mer , this situation appeals to Parisian intellectuals. In a strange sort of way, it draws another seductive veil over cultivated French eyes whenever they focus on the alternately brash and admirable United States.
On a per capita basis, the French Army suffered heavier casualties than any other major participant in that sanguinary conflict.
What's more, most of the battles were fought on French soil, a circumstance which resulted in as much damage to the nation's environment and physical plant as it did to its reserves of able-bodied cannon fodder. The factor that eventually tilted the balance in favour of the Allied Cause was the commitment of ever greater numbers of American troops to the trenches following Washington's declaration of war in While America's actual military role in the defeat of the German, Austro-Hungarian, and Ottoman empires was relatively minor, its logistical contribution proved to be decisive.
Thus, America emerged from the Great War with the prestige of a major military power, the certainty that it had replaced Great Britain as the workshop of the world, and a foreign policy that had finally emerged from the carapace of isolation. These advantages had been won at very little cost to themselves.
American casualties were relatively minor, and its landscape was completely undamaged. With the possible exception of Canada and the other dominions, the United States was the only nation to emerge from the First World War in better shape than it went in.
Inevitably, this historical turn-around produced conflicting emotions in France. For the first time, Americans in Paris were counted not by the hundred, but by the hundred thousand. Gone were the days when the few brash New Worlders lucky enough to worm their way into the pages of French literature generally fell into the category of rich potential marriage partners, such as the "richissime Americain" to 3 1 whom Albertine was briefly betrothed in a suppressed passage of A la recherche du temps perdu Albertine disparue In the immediate post-war period, following demobilization, American writers and artists congregated in the City of Light because the views were pretty, the costs were low, sex was easy and Prohibition non-existent.
Around the same time, American movies started to inundate French screens. Since the same chemicals that went into the manufacture of celluloid were also used in the production of high explosives, French cinema lost its commercial edge to Hollywood during the Great War, an advantage. Less grudgingly, the French also began to listen to American popular music, particularly jazz. Black U.
