He is ridiculing Orlando Bloom – Justin Bieber’s little strike

The fight between Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom has not finished talking. While the actor refuses to comment, the Canadian, he puts a layer on social networks.

Justin Bieber or the art of provocation. The young singer of 20 years obviously did not appreciate at all to be put in his place Tuesday by Orlando Bloom, in a restaurant in Ibiza. On Wednesday, the one who now proudly exhibits mustache, muscles and tattoos, posted on his Instagram account a photo of his new enemy crying. A small tackle well felt to which the actor did not react.

While the two were each having dinner on their own with friends, the comedian was quickly annoyed by the singer’s presence and initially jostled him. Then, after hearing the Canadian throw: “What’s up bitch?” and “Say hello to Miranda,” he tried to punch her… but missed the mark.

Quickly, the incident made the rounds of the media, each recalling the enmity between the two men. And for good reason, while Orlando Bloom was still married to the top model Miranda Kerr, she would have flirted with Justin Bieber after a Victoria’s Secret fashion show. A few weeks ago, Orlando Bloom had for his part been seen at the exit of a restaurant with Selena Gomez … who is none other than the ex of the interpreter of “Baby”. What to put our two stars under pressure.

“Orlando won points forever for hitting Justin Bieber”

If he was applauded by the other people in the restaurant on Tuesday, Orlando Bloom is also at the center of the mockery, for missing his target, as he tried to punch the singer. Ultimate Figthing champion Forrest Griffin immediately offered his services to the actor, explaining on TMZ that he was not at all impressed by the star’s strike. “He gave it an asshole,” he commented, adding, “He can come to Vegas to train with me. That way, if they fight again, they will know the moves to win ”. But the athlete, who hopes to see a fight between the two stars, warns the actor: “Be careful, I think Floyd Mayweather Jr. Could train Bieber, and this guy is a monster.”

Other celebrities did not fail to comment on Twitter, this fight between the two men with rather thin physique. Alyssa Milano officially sided with Orlando Bloom, just like his former partner in “Lord of the Rings”, Dominic Monaghan. “Orlando won points forever for hitting Justin Bieber last night in Ibiza,” he wrote. The actor of the series “Arrow”, Stephen Amell, meanwhile was more mocking, explaining that Orlando Bloom had certainly not tried to hit Justin Bieber, but “just to give him a flick on the head.” Joshua Malina, interpreter of David Rosen in “Scandal” for his part confided that it was the “first time” that he was interested in “a featherweight fight”.

VIDEO. Fight between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber in Ibiza

PEOPLE – We must not piss off Legolas. A fight broke out Wednesday, July 30 in Ibiza between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber, because of an insulting sentence from the singer.

The scene took place in the early morning at the exit of the Cipriani restaurant. Justin Bieber would have shown himself very familiar with the interpreter of Legolas in The Lord of the Rings, who obviously did not appreciate. According to the site TMZ, the singer would have launched a charming “what’s up bitch” (how are you bitch). Orlando Bloom would then have tried to hit Justin Bieber who would have dodged the blow.

But not everything turned out like this according to a source in the Daily Mail. “Justin was cordial, and everything was fine. Then Orlando got pissed off when he saw Justin, and started it off by throwing a punch at him,” he explained. The two stars were quickly separated by those present during the altercation.

Then, according to TMZ, Justin Bieber would have “fled” immediately after the incident, in front of a panel of stars present in the restaurant, Paris Hilton and P. Diddy in the lead.

Justin Bieber, who is no longer a provocation, would have subsequently posted on his Instagram account a photo of model Miranda Kerr, ex-wife of Orlando Bloom, in underwear, before deleting it.

The singer thus fueled a rumor dating from 2012. That year, he would have found Miranda Kerr backstage after a Victoria’s Secret parade. The two are said to have been more than close after the show, while the model was still married to Orlando Bloom. Who had been surprised to him alongside Selena Gomez, ex of Bieber, in April during a party …

“The Wire” and the Reality of Baltimore (Archive)

Out and about in The Wire town of Baltimore. Admittedly: I feel a little queasy – I associate the city with drugs, crime and corruption – David Simon showed me that intensely in five seasons of “The Wire”. But when I arrive Baltimore surprises me: there is a nice waterfront full of American tourists, it’s relatively tidy and free hybrid buses drive me through the city center. No sign of “The Wire”.

“Like it or not, Baltimore is like a family with six or eight kids and a problem kid named ‘The Wire’.”

The other children, for city guide Zippy Larson, are all the beautiful corners and areas of the city that you unfortunately don’t see in “The Wire”. In fact, Baltimore has more to offer, so city officials don’t like the constant connection to the TV hype. For the tourism authority, David Simon and his work on Baltimore, especially “The Wire”, is a red rag. My interview requests for this are rejected. Or as Zippy puts it:

“For them, the eraser can’t be big enough to erase ‘The Wire’.”

The 81-year-old lady, who has been offering tours of her hometown since the early 80s, doesn’t understand this attitude:

“‘The Wire’ is very interesting for people from all over the world. People write to me or call me: We’re coming to Baltimore, can you show us the locations? I’ll be happy to. I use that to give them a little something at the same time about Baltimore. There’s no law that forbids me to teach you anything more. “

David Simon and Baltimore

David Simon, the inventor of the series, was born in neighboring Washington DC, but moved to Baltimore at the age of 22 and became a journalist for the local daily newspaper “The Baltimore Sun”. He quickly deals with the rough realities of the city: As a police reporter, he has to do every day in the less beautiful areas of the city, Baltimore is sinking into the drug war in some corners. He himself remembers:

“Detective Bill Lansey said to me at the time: Dude, someone just had to write everything down for a year on the homicide squad. When we had to go on strike at the newspaper a few years later and I didn’t feel like going to the newsroom anymore, remembered I followed the detective’s words. The Police Commissioner at the time actually let me join the homicide squad – and that became the book.

David Simon’s book “Homicide: A Year on Murderous Streets” gave birth to the highly acclaimed NBC police series “Homicide: Life on the Street” in the 90s. This series already showed the murderous everyday life in certain areas of Baltimore and was written and shot here. Simon maintains this principle with “The Wire”: Baltimore, wherever you look.

“It’s a kind of love letter, from a doubting and frustrated lover, but it’s a declaration of love. I don’t have to advertise the city, that’s not my job, I never wanted that. But the city is important to me and others . “

David Simon still lives here. And while he insists that he sees Baltimore only as a metaphor for the post-industrial US city in general, he is seen as a polluter.

“As if someone was hanging your dirty laundry in public, nobody wants to see their dirt stains on such a big stage. That’s why this reaction.”

Tom Rowe is also from Baltimore and a marketer. He doesn’t understand the behavior of the city either.

“First of all, this is a brilliant series. It made Baltimore famous, it opens up the possibility of telling the rest of the story, showing the rest of Baltimore. David Simon and his team showed an excerpt, now it’s our job , from passionate locals to tell the rest. “

“The series shows one side of the city, but there is so much more”

Rowe worked in the city’s tourist office for five years. He was and is a fan of “The Wire”. It was already clear to him then: We shouldn’t fight the series, but use it.

“That was the opportunity to go into an exchange: The series shows one side of the city, but there is so much more! This other side that we all love so much didn’t fit into ‘The Wire’. That would be the one Series didn’t do it justice either. “

Many believe here that the city is missing out on a huge opportunity. Other cities are showing how one can use locally filmed series for tourism: for example Albuquerque with “Breaking Bad”. Sure: Baltimore has big problems: There are no-go areas that I don’t go to during my stay. As in so many other American cities, the War on Drugs continues to be fought there. In other corners, Baltimore looks very different to me: Districts with small shops, cafes and bars. David Simon himself also thinks that Baltimore doesn’t have to hide:

“Our food is better, our beer is colder and our neighborhoods are worth living in. Our city is much more genuine than others! We welcome those who are open to it.”

Corporate cities: Detroit, kingdom of the American Ford

The nervous growl of the Mustang engine is not often heard in the streets of Detroit. Rather, they welcome the quiet meow of the more economical Ford Fiesta. The American capital of the automobile, where Ford has set up its first factory, has been strongly affected by the crisis which has shaken the sector since 2008. The heart of “Motor City” beats at the same rate as that of the factories which inhabit it, in particular those of Ford, which deeply marked the history of the city.

This industrial empire was created by Henry Ford. This farmer’s son galloped as a child on the family farm in Dearborn, in the heart of present-day Detroit suburbs, which he helped develop. He left the farm at 16 to settle in the nascent metropolis, where he successively set up two businesses. The first goes bankrupt and the second is redeemed after a year of existence.

First assembly line

The third time will be the good one for this serial entrepreneur: on June 16, 1903, he founded the Ford Motor Company, with the support of 12 investors. He rents a studio on rue Mack, in Detroit, which he quickly leaves for a larger building on rue Piquette. It is there that he imagines in August 1908, the car which will make his fortune, the Ford T. It will be sold to more than 15 million specimens.

In 1913, he created his first large-scale factory in Highland Park (on the border of the city). In this large parallelepiped of red bricks, now condemned, he set up a production method in force in Chicago slaughterhouses: assembly line work, which would later be called Fordism. On October 7, the company’s engineers set up the first assembly line in the building, where the Ford T’s were pulled by a winch. The first 140 workers no longer need to travel, their tasks are simplified as much as possible.

Merit bonus

Result: it takes no longer 12 hours and a half, but only 93 minutes to build the car. Its price drops from 850 to 260 dollars. Ford hired to meet the growing success of its star vehicle: in 1914, the company had more than 13,000 workers. The tasks were arduous in the factories and the pace of work sustained. To avoid too much turnover, Henry Ford decided to pay his employees 2.34 dollars per day, plus a bonus of 2.66 dollars, a significant sum at the time.

But this bonus was attributed to merit: the workers had to be married men, to maintain their homes and their gardens perfectly. They were not to smoke or drink … These requirements had a strong influence on the lives of the people of Detroit and on the local culture. Employees, better paid, were able to settle in small pavilions, with a square of lawn carefully mowed in front.

A ghost town

Ford-branded automobiles reigned supreme on the streets of the city for several decades, because the workers of the group were sufficiently well paid to afford (after several years of savings anyway), the king vehicle of the company , the famous Ford T. Detroit’s road infrastructure has been adapted accordingly.

But Ford was not just a cornucopia for Motor City: when the group began to relocate its factories on a massive scale abroad, in the 1980s, unemployment set in. This movement accelerated with the financial crisis of 2008, which brought the main American automobile groups into virtual bankruptcy. The city had 1.9 million inhabitants in 1950. In 2014, they were only 700,000. The unemployed workers left their homes, for which they could no longer pay their drafts for lack of wages. In the residential district of East of Hamtramck, brambles have invaded the grounds of abandoned houses.

But Ford had sensed the storm coming: the group borrowed in 2005, two years before the crisis, 20 billion dollars from the banks to revive its activity. Driven by heavy state investment, activity is picking up again in Detroit and the surrounding area. Today, 500 people work in the assembly line in the Ford plant in Michigan, from which several hundred Focus and C-Max are produced every day.

WHO advises gay people to take antiretrovirals as a preventative

Gottfried Hirnschall, who heads the WHO HIV department, says the organization is seeing “explosion of the epidemic”. He explains this by the fact that there is a relaxation of prevention and worry.

According to the WHO report, gay men today are 19 times more likely than the average population to be infected with the virus.

And to counter this data, the WHO estimates that taking a daily pill combining two antiretrovirals, in addition to the use of condoms, could reduce the risks by 20 to 25%, and avoid “one million new infections in this group in ten years”.

As a reminder, more than 35.3 million people are living with HIV worldwide, and 71% are concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa.

a concentrate of Py, for the worst and (especially) the best

Avignon, special correspondent

He could not do less, Olivier Py: no less than to offer, for his opening show as the new director of the Festival d’Avignon, a quintessence of his theater, his obsessions and his fantasies. So be it, with Orlando or impatience, the premiere of which went off without a hitch, Saturday July 5, at the FabricA, the new venue of the Festival.

Before the performance itself, the entire technical and artistic team of the show climbed onto the set while, in voiceover, the actors said a text that carried high art like “Civilizing institution”, and its need for “Bring light into the minds of the people”. This was of course the famous speech (“Du peril de l’ignorance”) delivered by Victor Hugo to the National Assembly on November 10, 1848, and it was a rich idea to have this founding text heard again, which is the origin of the whole edifice of French public culture, at a time when this edifice seems weakened on all sides.

Then, up to the comedy, because it is one that this Orlando, or at least a joyous and macabre farce as Olivier Py likes them. Joy, grace, death, desire, God, theater and handsome boys play the main roles, as they should in this partly autobiographical play where Py concentrates – and recycles – all his leitmotifs.

Where it is question, therefore, of a young hero named Orlando (in reference in particular to the character of Virginia Woolf, incarnation par excellence of the powers offered by the art of living all human potentialities), whose way of the cross consists of find out who his father is. Old story, in our theater. From station to station, launched on successive true-false tracks by his mother, an extremely theatrical actress, he crosses the road of a cursed poet and exalted or cynical directors (or both at the same time), emblematic of a certain French decentralization …

Olivier Py no doubt also makes fun of himself, in this play where he put a little of himself in all the characters, whether it is the impatient and hampered youth of Orlando and his friends, or even – yes – of his character as minister of masochistic culture. The comedy of power, in which one mask only hides another, is one of the play’s most successful dimensions. All the more so since one cannot help but think that Py evokes, in a roundabout way, a good part of his adventures with Frédéric Mitterrand, during the episode, in 2012, of his ousting from the Théâtre de l ‘Odéon and his appointment as head of the Festival d’Avignon.
