Even 60 years after his passing, Ernest Hemingway’s presence continues to haunt Key West, the Florida island city where he lived in the 1930s, as evidenced by the annual festival, dubbed Hemingway Days Festivities, held there and dedicated to him. The high point of this celebration is the Hemingway Look-Alike Contest, a Hemingway lookalike contest, which has enjoyed great success since its creation in 1981 by Lorian Hemingway, author and granddaughter of the famous writer. In addition, this competition is traditionally held at Sloppy Joe’s Bar which was regularly frequented by Papa and his gang, a name that the writer had given himself when he was twenty because he hated his first name, Ernest. In anticipation of this contest which will take precedence over the look-alike of the celebrity (nevertheless humorously qualified as a Beauty contest for paunchy elderly men with white beards), these gentlemen who have a chance to win are working meticulously on their image, sparing no effort. effort to resemble at best the Pulitzer Prize (1953) and Nobel Prize in Literature (1954).

“Daddy” would be so proud

In front of the jury made up of former look-alikes, Taylor said: “Hemingway is of great interest to all of us who are part of this competition. And you know, I think “Papa” would have been proud of what was accomplished in his name in a city he loved so much. »Heavy applause from the audience. Taylor also said that besides the resemblance, he shared his passion for fishing, hunting and the outdoors with the original model. Others before him had accompanied their performances with poems or songs to the glory of their idol. Along with this lookalike competition, the Hemingway Festival has also chosen to remember it through several of its areas of interest. Thus, to honor his passion for the art of bullfighting, a parody of bullfighting, similar to the one taking place in the Spanish city of Pamplona, ​​is organized with look-alikes and fake bulls parading in Duval Street. in Key West. Recall that in the 1920s, Hemingway became an aficionado after attending the San Fermín festivals in Pamplona which served as the setting for his novel The Sun Also Rises. In another of his works, Death in the Afternoon, he talks about the metaphysical aspect of bullfighting, associating it with a ritual close to a religious ceremony, a starting point for the writer of questions about the essence of life and death.

“Ernest” who come from everywhere

Since the competition’s inception in 1981, contenders have come to Key West from all over the United States and around the world. To put themselves in their skin, they often arrive dressed in khaki-colored safari shirt and trouser sets or woolen fisherman’s sweaters reminiscent of Hemingway’s typical outfit. Then they go up on the stage of the bar Sloppy Joe arranged for the occasion and try to impress a jury made up of winners of previous competitions. This festival has not neglected the various aspects of the rich personality of one of the most influential authors of the country and the world. We find him in particular through the tournament of the most spectacular caught marlin fish, recalling Hemingway’s fervor for deep sea fishing, and an exhibition of rare objects that belonged to him. There are also readings, a street fair celebrating Key West’s quick-witted spirit, a 5-mile run and another paddleboard race reminiscent of his fondness for the sport. And, of course, the 122nd anniversary of his birth … July 21 was the pretext for great celebrations with the announcement of the winner of the annual news contest organized by his granddaughter Lorian.

During his time in Key West, Ernest Hemingway had written many of his classics (including For Whom the Bell Tolls and To Have It or Not) and had spent his leisure hours fishing and bonding with the people as well. inhabitants, than with men of letters.

Matthieu Delormeau spoke of an improbable anecdote on the Touche plateau not at my post this Thursday, September 2.

A memorable memory. Back to school took place this Thursday, September 2. For the occasion, the chroniclers of Do not touch My TV remembered when they were kids and they chained the anecdotes. While he made his comeback on the show this Monday, August 30, Matthieu Delormeau spoke of a dispute he had with one of his comrades who has become a very well-known public figure. “It was in the early 1980s, I was in 4th grade I think. There was always an exchange between a student from England and one of our class, just for two weeks. Me, I was in the front row and, next to me, a young girl called Katherine“, he first explained. “She sits next to me, she was there, a little thin and she said to me: ‘Can you lend me your pencil?’ Me, it annoyed me because I didn’t like to lend my things. So I give it to her, but I tell her after that she has to come with hers“, he concluded in front of the chroniclers, impatient to hear the rest.

An unforgettable memory. On the Touche plateau not at my post, Matthieu Delormeau remembers that young Katherine then asked him if she could borrow his eraser. Faced with this question, young Matthew loses his calm and categorically refuses. “There, I said to her: ‘No Katherine, we have our things or we don’t have them’“, says the columnist. Vexed, the young girl never sat next to him again and then returned to England two weeks later, at the end of the school exchange. It was only three years later that he discovered that this famous Katherine started a career in England, thanks to his teacher at the time. Surprised, Matthieu Delormeau asks for more details. “This Katherine was Kate Moss! “, he launches before lamenting: “I threw it twice for my eraser and pen“, he concluded in front of a surprised Cyril Hanouna. An improbable anecdote that the columnist is not ready to forget.

Matthieu Delormeau: why was he so scared?

Delighted to have returned to the set of Do not touch My TV, Matthieu Delormeau was however the victim of a big fear at the end of the emission of Monday, August 30. The next day, he explains to his colleagues that he “made a strong start yesterday“, he launches. The reason?”Yesterday, leaving the show, there was a hysterical girl in my car for the shots and everything that jumped on me. I swear it’s true, that’s it “, he revealed before adding: “I had a difficult evening on the networks too“The comments of the columnist the day before against Fabrice Di Vizio were not unnoticed enough and many people have expressed their opinion to him, without tongue in cheek.

Still, Blue does not intend to curb his desires. He plans to continue living the good life, as he had explained when shooting a clip in his property: « I have always exhibited my cars, even before that. It’s not my fault that I choose to shoot a music video in my garden, and my garden is sublime.

Close Sussex buddy Omid Scobie has hinted that the couple may have plans to make a film in the works with the goal of conquering the United States.

Former actress Meghan Markle could hone Prince Harry’s stage skills, as the author of Finding Freedom believes it is “only a matter of time before it comes to life.”

Prince Harry and his wife are said to be ‘aiming high’ in LACrédit: GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021

As the Duke and Duchess continue to forge strong relationships within LA’s elite, it looks like they could broaden their horizons by planning to appear on the big screen.

Scobie revealed on the Royally Obsessed podcast, “I recently had a very interesting conversation with executives at Netflix. I did my best to find out a little more about the Sussexes.

“All I was told was, ‘Oh man, you don’t even know half of what they’re working on. They aim so high ‘.

“So I think the only thing that can surprise us at any given time – and I don’t know when it will be – and it’s really just my own guess … I think that’s when we’re going to hear some sort of movie announcement. “

Meghan already has a wealth of acting experience under her belt – with roles in CSI, 90210 and Get Him to the Greek, before landing her pivotal role in US legal drama, Suits, in 2011.

While Harry’s past experience is more of a fight than a celebrity, the 36-year-old is more than comfortable in front of a camera.

The Sussexes’ beloved Archewell organization also has a production company affiliate, which could provide them with the tools and knowledge to bring their own visions to life.

Not to mention Meg and Harry’s £ 112million deal with streaming giants Netflix, which could provide the perfect platform to showcase their ideas.

“It’s only a matter of time before they’ve acquired the rights to a truly amazing story, whether they can bring it to life through a movie or a TV series,” Scobie continued.

“We’ve heard a lot about the unscripted work that they do. There is this whole aspect of the production company that is scripted. So it’s only a matter of time before it comes to life.

“I think it’s really exciting because it’s a side of them that we’ve never seen or heard of before, but also a side that we know they’re all in.” both eager to get started.

“So being able to get into Hollywood a little bit but trying to do it in a way – as they described it – in a much more impactful and socially conscious way – it’s going to be really interesting. “

It’s only a matter of time before they’ve acquired the rights to a truly amazing story, whether they’re able to bring it to life through a movie or a TV series.

Omid Scobie

The Sussexes have already signed a multi-year deal to produce nature series, documentaries and children’s programs for Netflix, but it looks like they could get on camera soon.

Their first project was a documentary focused on Prince Harry’s precious Invictus games.

The Duke took on the role of executive producer while Archewell Productions worked with director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara on the series, which followed both athletes and organizers as they prepared for the Games .

He had previously claimed he had to sign the deal with Netflix and a £ 30million deal with Spotify because he was effectively ‘cut off’ by the Royal Family when he and Meghan stepped down.

During the explosive encounter with chat show host Oprah, he said, “We didn’t have a plan.

“It was suggested by someone else to the point where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to provide security for us. “

“We’ve heard a lot about the unscripted work that they do. There is this whole aspect of the production company that is scripted. So it’s only a matter of time before it comes to life.

“I think it’s really exciting because it’s a side of them that we’ve never seen or heard of before, but also a side that we know they’re all in.” both eager to get started.

“So being able to get into Hollywood a little bit but trying to do it in a way – as they described it – in a much more impactful and socially conscious way – it’s going to be really interesting. “

It’s only a matter of time before they’ve acquired the rights to a truly amazing story, whether they’re able to bring it to life through a movie or a TV series.

Omid Scobie

The Sussexes have already signed a multi-year deal to produce nature series, documentaries and children’s programs for Netflix, but it looks like they could get on camera soon.

Their first project was a documentary focused on Prince Harry’s precious Invictus games.

The Duke took on the role of executive producer while Archewell Productions worked with director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara on the series, which followed both athletes and organizers as they prepared for the Games .

He had previously claimed he had to sign the deal with Netflix and a £ 30million deal with Spotify because he was effectively ‘cut off’ by the Royal Family when he and Meghan stepped down.

During the explosive encounter with chat show host Oprah, he said, “We didn’t have a plan.

“It was suggested by someone else to the point where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to provide security for us. “

OVER 24 million of us watched Del Boy and Rodney finally become millionaires in 1996.

This staggering audience is still the record for a British audience to this day – but where are the stars of Only Fools and Horses now?

David Jason, Nicholas Lyndhurst et Lennard Pearce dans Only Fools and Horses[/caption]

One of the stars of the beloved sitcom, which originally aired between 1981 and 1991, was Acton’s Tower used as the setting for Del’s apartment.

The Harlech Tower, which was used to represent the fictional Nelson Mandela home, is due to be demolished as part of a £ 650million redevelopment.

Sir David Jason even said the destruction of the building was a “disgrace”, adding “I think it should be a listed building”.

But what has happened to Jason and the rest of the cast since the series ended?

David Jason

His performance as the wide boy Del Boy Trotter made David Jason a national treasure.

The 81-year-old was even knighted for his services in theater and comedy in 2005.

But while Del Boy is arguably his defining role, Jason went on to have a slew of other leading male roles in hit series, most notably as Detective Jack Frost in A Touch of Frost.

Sir David Jason, 81, has won four BAFTA awards thanks to his unforgettable performance as Del Boy[/caption]

Last year Jason posted his memoir to Del of a Life and revealed that he wanted to mentor the Love Island stars through their stardom overnight.

“I am worried about them,” he said in November. “I wish I could get them a message to be careful because you are your own money, so spend it wisely.”

“I’ve been through a long, sometimes painful journey, and I’ve learned to live with success and, if you will, glory. I did a sort of apprenticeship.

“These people have, very quickly, gone from nothing, nobody, if you will, to instant success and fame, mostly on their looks and bodies and whatever it is. It is so dangerous.

Nicolas Lyndhurst

Rodney has always been loyal to his reckless older brother – even when he made him look like a good plonker.

Nicholas Lyndhurst, 60, was nominated for a British Comedy Award and three BAFTAs for his portrayal of Rodney.

He also won a BAFTA for his role as an actor playing multiple family members in commercials for WH Smith.

In 2010, Lyndhurst reprized his role as Rodney in the OFAH prequel, Rock & Chips, before joining the cast of New Tricks in 2013.

Nicholas Lyndhurst, 60, will be forever remembered as Rodney Trotter

But in recent years, tragedy has struck when her CBBC actor son Archie passed away suddenly at the age of 19.

In September of last year, Archie died in his sleep from a brain tumor.

“Getting through today without you is the hardest thing ever,” Lyndhurst ballerina Lucy wrote on Mother’s Day.

“I miss you every minute of every day. I will never stop loving you. Never. “

Jean Challis

Boycie of John Challis was so popular with OFAH fans that he got his own spinoff series, The Green Green Grass.

Now 78, Challis also rose to fame for playing Monty in four series of the ITV sitcom Benidorm.

John Challis, 78, recently found out how beloved Boycie is in Serbia

Later this year, Challis plans to move forward with a delayed theatrical tour where he will speak about his career as Boycie and other topics.

And in 2020, Challis made a documentary, Boycie in Belgrade, exploring how OFAH had become a huge success in Serbia.

“I felt like a pop star, it was amazing,” he told The Sun. “They kept asking me where Marlene was. “

Sue Holder

Sue Holderness was unforgettable as Boycie’s long-suffering wife, Marlene.

Now 72, Holderness joined Challis in The Green Green Grass and had other televised jobs in Casualty and Still Open All Hours alongside David Jason.

Sue Holderness, 72, has remained an active actress and has reprized the role of Marlene on several occasions

And soap fans were elated when Holderness was revealed as Billy Mitchell’s new love interest for EastEnders earlier this year.

“After more than 50 years in the business, this was my first time working on a soap and I loved the whole experience,” Sue said in March.

“I was absolutely delighted to have had the chance to visit Walford.”

Gwyneth Fort

Rodney’s relationship with his wife Cassandra hasn’t always been easy, but they ended up together.

Cassandra was played by Gwyneth Strong, who joined the cast of the show’s sixth series.

Now 61, Strong has gone on to have other roles on television, most notably in Casualty and a two-part episode of A Touch of Frost, reuniting OFAH co-star David Jason.

Gwyneth Strong, 61, has also played roles on shows like EastEnders

She recently had a recurring role as Geraldine Clough on EastEnders.

In 2018, Strong appeared on Loose Women with Tessa Peake-Jones, who played Racquel on OFAH.

During the appearance, Nadia Sawalha mistakenly called Strong “Cassandra”.

Patrick Murray

Mickey Pearce’s ridiculous exaggerations and incredible bragging have given Del Boy a run for his money as the OFAH’s most incredible spiv.

But actor Patrick Murray, 64, found himself the opposite of Peckham.

During an appearance for Loose Women in 2018, Murray revealed that he had been to Thailand for 10 years.

Patrick Murray, 64, returned to work as a driver when acting jobs dried up

He then said he had to work as a driver in order to get a visa to bring his Thai wife and daughter to the UK.

“I wanted to get him a visa but it was difficult so I had to come back here. Being out of the industry for so long, the job dried up so I went back to driving a company car, a Mercedes, to do it.

“I only saw my baby on the phone for two years, I was a Skype dad. “

He confirmed he was reunited in Britain with his family two weeks before appearing on the show.

Tessa Peake Jones

Raquel Turner was Del Boy’s love of life.

And for 64-year-old Tessa Peake-Jones, the role was her love.

After the OFAH, Peake-Jones made television appearances in The Demon Headmaster, The Bill and Holby City.

Tessa Peake-Jones, 64, played Del Boy’s longtime partner Raquel on OFAH

And most recently, she played a recurring role in the ITV crime drama Grantchester as Sylvia Chapman.

In 2019, she also sang Mamma Mia to a West End audience and a panel of judges on All Star Musicals.

Her turn on the show came six years after her split from husband Douglas Hodge – who previously played Raquel’s son Damien in OFAH.

Paul barbier

Paul Barber played the Truck Driver and Boyfriend of Del Denzil Tulser on OFAH.

Now 70, he also relaunched the role in The Green Green Grass and landed other TV shows like Corrie and Casualty.

Paul Barber, 70, played roles in blockbuster films in the late 90s and early 2000s

But he’s also starred in films like The Full Monty (1997) and Samuel L. Jackson’s action comedy The 51st State (2001).

Most recently, Barber made appearances at Dreamland in Margate, Kent, for the 30th anniversary of the special Christmas set at the resort.

And late last year, Luther star Idris Elba revealed that Barber had inspired him to become an actor.

Roger Lloyd-Pack

Del Boy falling through the bar has been repeatedly chosen as the best TV moment in British history – in large part thanks to Trigger’s hilarious reaction.

The adorable road sweeper was played by Roger Lloyd-Pack, who also found sitcom fame by playing farmer Owen Newit on the Vicar of Dibley.

In recent years, he has performed alongside Stephen Fry at Shakespeare’s Globe in his production of Twelfth Night and Richard III.

Tragically, in 2014 Lloyd-Pack died of pancreatic cancer – he was 69 years old.

Other favorites of the show have also died since the final broadcast.

Buster Merryfield, who played Uncle Albert, died at the age of 79 in 1999 after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.

His character was written in the series after the sudden death of Lennard Pearce in 1984.

Pearce played grandfather in OFAH’s first four series before dying of a heart attack at the age of 69 in 1984.

Kenneth MacDonald, who played publicist Mike Fisher, also died of a heart attack.

He was on vacation in Hawaii in 2001.

We lost our country’s greatest comedy writer


Sir David Jason sur John Sullivan

Series creator and screenwriter John Sullivan died in 2011 of pneumonia – he was 64 years old.

Sullivan had received an OBE in 2005 for his services to the theater and the stars of the OFAH paid tribute to him when they learned of his passing.

“We have lost our country’s greatest comedy writer, but he leaves us with a great legacy, the gift of laughter,” said David Jason.

Mark Freeland, head of comedy at the BBC at the time, said: “No one understood what made us laugh and cry better than John Sullivan.

“He was the Dickens of our generation. Quite simply the best, most natural and sincere comedy writer of our time. “

The Gold comedy channel will celebrate 40 years of Only fools and horses throughout the month of September from the 8th by airing each episode of the classic comedy on weeknights and weekends.

Coluche was an illustrious French humorist who was very famous in the 1980s. But unfortunately, he tragically passed from life to death at the age of 41. During his years of glory, the actor had a motto that he always respected. Back on his extra pounds.

35 years ago, France lost one of its greatest comedians. On the occasion of the broadcast of a special documentary on the life of the actor on France 3 called “Coluche, a formidable era”, AmoMama decided to return to the pounds that the comedian wanted to keep.

FAR FROM CONSIDERING HIMSELF AS A CELEBRITY

On June 19, 1986, the whole of France learned of the tragic disappearance of Coluche following a road accident at the age of 41. Indeed, while he was riding his motorcycle without a protective mask, the forty-something was violently hit by a truck.

Only 41 years old, the actor died leaving behind his wife, Véronique Colucci and his two children. Even though he had a well-defined career, Michel Colucci, better known by the pseudo Coluche, did not pay any attention to celebrity.

Far from following fashion, he stood out with his popular clothes, like overalls or even a striped sweater. But apart from all that, the forty-something held his weight more than anything.

HIS WEIGHT, THE BASE OF HIS HUMOR

On Wednesday September 1, 2021, France 3 broadcasts a special documentary in honor of the illustrious comedian who left instead, called “Coluche, une epoch formidable”.

Only 41 years old, the actor died leaving behind his wife, Véronique Colucci and his two children. Even though he had a well-defined career, Michel Colucci, better known by the pseudo Coluche, did not pay any attention to celebrity.

Far from following fashion, he stood out with his popular clothes, like overalls or even a striped sweater. But apart from all that, the forty-something held his weight more than anything.

HIS WEIGHT, THE BASE OF HIS HUMOR

On Wednesday September 1, 2021, France 3 broadcasts a special documentary in honor of the illustrious comedian who left instead, called “Coluche, une epoch formidable”.

Keir Starmer ‘turned his back on this whole time’, expert says

Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer stumbled across the UK’s pandemic-fueled political minefield in 2021, flailing as he tried to drag the party to the center. The loss of Jeremy Corbyn in 2019 sparked panicked efforts to reform the party into an “eligible” entity, but polls show his efforts have failed to convince the British and its own members. The solution, according to a recent report, is to assemble a team of leading Labor figures.

Labor in Communications, which brings together a network of progressive communications and public relations experts, wrote the “Fit for the Future” report.

The document recommends ways in which the party can improve its image and strive towards this eligible ideal.

One of the many recommendations made included the formation of a “political cabinet”.

The group says Labor has a problem with inexperienced shadow cabinet members who have never played a role in government.

The last labor administration ended in 2010, and most of the former ministers moved to new pastures.

As such, Labor in Comms said Sir Keir should take advantage of his most valued representatives in power and reduce inexperienced voices in the shadow cabinet.

The new “political cabinet” would be made up of figures with dominant political support who could guide Labor to success.

The report described seven Labor heavyweights who are expected to have a seat at the table alongside their leader.

Mark Drakeford

Mr Drakeford is the only Labor Party figure leading a government in the UK.

He took office as Welsh Prime Minister in 2018 and has retained much of his popularity.

The Welsh Labor leader contrasted sharply with Boris Johnson amid the Covid pandemic, with a more cautious approach to lockdown.

Researchers have found that his leadership during the pandemic has helped people in Wales better understand the rules than Mr Johnson in England.

He stood up to Westminster last year as ministers threatened to force the city to shut down without what he believed was a proper support package.

Mr Burnham was re-elected this year after winning the support of 67% of Mancunians.

He is also one of the few leading figures in the Labor Party with actual cabinet experience, having served under Gordon Brown as Minister of Health, Chief Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Health and ultimately Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sports.

The facial recognition AI used by the authorities as part of their law enforcement prerogatives may well be at the center of very lively debates, this does not prevent Amazon from wanting to find a place in this market thanks to its Rekognition technology, which currently aims to identify celebrities in images and videos.

While the e-commerce giant is advancing cautiously on the subject, and has banned US law enforcement from using its facial recognition tool until sufficient regulation is in place, that does not limit its ambitions in this market. Especially since the way is now clear: IBM has completely withdrawn from this activity, while Microsoft has paused sales to police services until federal laws are adopted.

Hence the idea of ​​Amazon to take advantage of this beating time to continue to develop the Rekognition tool. And what could be better than trying your hand at show business? Amazon thus provides the media and other entertainment companies with its service to automatically tag famous personalities. The tool “now automatically recognizes tens of thousands of well-known personalities in images and videos using machine learning,” boasts the side of AWS, the cloud branch of the e-commerce giant.

Appliquer le deep learning

To expand its tool, AWS updated its models to provide more accurate detections and a larger “catalog” of potentially “recognizable” global celebrities. The company also added three new metadata attributes to celebrity profiles – gender, expression, and smile – to help users find specific celebrity moods in photos and videos. Race Results: Instead of a human spending hours tagging photos, AWS will automatically tag them in vast catalogs of media assets.

Faced with the Rekognition tool, however, there are still some competitors. Similar facial recognition services include Microsoft’s Azure Face and Google’s Cloud Vision API, although Google currently only offers a restricted, beta version of its celebrity facial recognition technology. Google’s service is also aimed at companies in the entertainment and media industry.

As a reminder, Rekognition for video facial recognition analysis has been available since 2017. Amazon Rekognition Video uses deep learning to analyze videos for objects, scenes, celebrities, texts, activities and Inappropriate content recognizable from customer videos stored on Amazon S3.

A function accessible in Europe

The celebrity recognition feature promises to save media companies the cost of human media tagging, while making it easier to find images. “With the rapid proliferation of the volume of image and video content available on video-on-demand (VOD), streaming and social media platforms, media companies are finding it difficult to organize, research and fully utilize their catalogs. ‘scale,’ AWS explains in a blog post.

Likewise, news channels often need to quickly locate images and videos of a particular celebrity in response to current events, but the lack of metadata makes it tedious to find the right clips in their libraries. . Sports broadcasters also struggle to quickly find the right game and interview footage to create highlights, short films and specials. “

Some of the AWS Regions supported for Celebrity Recognition include the United States, Asia Pacific, Japan, and Europe.
