Apple Keynotes’ “One More Thing”

A picture says it all - April 05, 2017

It’s now a classic. Courtesy of Steve Jobs, “one more thing” is the iconic catchphrase that Apple’s big man always pronounced at the end of each keynote. If every Apple enthusiasts were waiting for that very sentence, it is simply because it always preceded a big announcement – like a new iPhone for example. And as this has become a highlight of the Apple keynotes, the phrase remained, even after the death of Steve Jobs. To this day, “one more thing” introduces the climax of the keynote.

See you in September, with even more things to say.

2. Nile Rodgers: When you have three Grammys, carved hits like « Like A Virgin » for Madonna, « Get Lucky » for Daft Punk, « Let’s Dance » for Bowie or « Good Time » for your own band (Chic), clearly you’ve got some interesting stuff to say.

3. Lee Daniels: At a conference, the creator of Empire has also shared his story. From growing up in a rough neighborhood to him making it in Hollywood as well as his Golden Globes nominations, it was a very moving moment for the attendees.

4. Bob Odenkirk: The Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad actor held a conference too where he talked about his career as an actor, but also a writer and producer. A great way to find out more about the man behind the character before he reprises his role on Better Call Saul’s season 3.

3 questions to Michel Lévy-Provençal from TEDxParis: “First of all, a talk is about telling a story”

The 3 questions - April 05, 2017

As the head of TEDxParis since 2009, Michel Lévy-Provençal has become a household name in the motivational speaking world. That’s the reason why we wanted to pick his brain and talk about how to best organize our ideas.

Orange Pop: How did this project of having TED conferences in Paris come about?

Michel Lévy-Provençal: TEDxParis was born in 2009. A few friends and me had really wanted to have people come up on stage and tell us about their crazy ideas. So I reached out to TED saying that I thought it was unfortunate that we didn’t get this type of conferences in France. By chance, around the same time, TED was launching the TEDx program, a licence which allows people to organize talks all over the round. They asked me to be the first one to hold a talk in Europe, which I did, in Paris. We’ve become the very first “TEDx” conference and the biggest community too.

O. Pop: What are some the difficulties attached to those kind of events?

M.L.P.: In 2009, the format wasn’t as popular; we had to guide our speakers so that they could be impactful on stage. I’ve reached out to people from the theater and self-help industries so that we could come up with a certain methodology that we still use with our speakers. First of all, you must know that a good talk is never improvised. You have to work on it. The structure, the message you want to convey, the different anecdotes you rely on to tell your story. A talk is mainly about telling a story. Also you must rehearse. You can’t go on stage unless you’ve rehearsed at least 3 times. Your introduction has to be super-catchy, unexpected and enticing to grab the audience’s attention. It is the same as far as the conclusion.

O. Pop: How do you think conferences, ideas and TED’s manner of addressing them can change the world?

M.L.P.: TED is all about giving exposure to ideas that are worth sharing. Obviously talking about an ideo on stage for 15 minutes isn’t enough to change the world. Still, it is a hook, a catalyzer, a spark. People in the audience could be like “Wow! Maybe I should try too”, and then be inspired to go further. Based on some positive feedback we’ve come up with a new format called L’Echappée Volée”. Instead of an afternoon, it lasts for 3 days. There are talks and happenings that allow the attendees to experiment the projects and innovations presented on stage. Furthermore, it’s a great way to connect with the attendees, introduce them to those who are trying to make a change and motivate them to start to do so on their own. The next edition of L’Echapée Volée will be on May 12th – 14th.

How did Hermione Granger make it to the UN?

The killer question - April 05, 2017

Among the great speeches that have recently stuck with the masses, there is no doubt that everyone remembers that of a beautiful and intelligent 24 year-old at the United Nations: Emma Watson, whom have become a household name for playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies. If her 2014 conference about women’s rights might have surprised many, it is important to stress that Emma has always supported female education- charities and visited countries such as Bangladesh or Zambia for various humanitarian projects. Before ending up at the UN on that day, the actress has been an ambassador for Camfed International, an organization that focuses on female education in rural Africa. And its through her dedication and commitment that Emma has been chosen by UN Women to become the ambassador for their equal rights campaign, HeForShe.

And just like that, she has managed to put a spell on all of us, once again.

The guy with the most WTF question

Who's who - April 05, 2017

Speakers know it well: the classic Q&A session that takes place right after their interventions are usually interrupted by an absurd question by an attendee who hasn’t quite gotten everything right or who wants to stand out. The research scientists of Rennes’ L’Espace Des Sciences in France were taken aback when they had to answer this question:I’d like to know, if there was a robot that detects if a fly has been in contact with a corpse in the country side, and goes inside people’s houses, and goes on bread and butter, and earthworms, before people eat it… that it detects the worm, that it isn’t infected… We don’t hear that people can eat earthworm. Because there was a problem?”
Needless to say the speakers couldn’t come up with a correct answer either.

Rihanna is Harvard’s Latest Valedictorian

Music - April 05, 2017

« … so I’ve made it to Harvard! ». This is how pop princess Rihanna started her acceptance speech at the world famous university on February 28, 2017.

The singer who was invited to collect a Humanitarian Award gave a speech that could have only been delivered by her.

Amidst all the carefreeness often associated with her, you could tell she was really speaking from the heart when addressing her philanthropic work, stressing that helping others had nothing to do with being « famous or college educated »

Sporting a more demure look – but still showing the right amount of skin – the artist was looking strikingly beautiful and definitely made an impression on that little guy that was chosen to present her with her award.

We love it when celebs use their power not only to entertain us, but also to talk about first world issues. More power to you, Rihanna!

Kate Winslet has had enough of fat-shaming!

Stories - April 05, 2017

Kate Winslet has had enough and is not afraid to take a stand.

At the fourth annual WE Day in the UK, the Oscar-winning actress spoke up against the people who have tried to make her feel bad about her talent and her looks throughout her career. 

She used the opportunity to denounce the fat-shaming culture that is rampant in modern society : “I was even told that I might be lucky with my acting, if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts”.

Dressed very casually, you could tell she was speaking from the heart when touching upon body issues and the audience seemed to love it as evidenced by the cheers that could be heard in the room.

Kudos to Kate for showing us that as different as our lives can be, everybody goes through the same hurdles. You go girl!

Anne Hathaway fights for gender equality at United Nations

Stories - April 06, 2017

As the latest goodwill ambassador for U.N. Women, Anne Hathaway walks in Emma Watson’s footsteps by delivering a sensational speech at U.N..

Though she started out jokingly, the numerous issues that were addressed were anything but light-hearted : « A draft of my speech begins, ‘Oh, good, another celebrity telling you what to do with your life!’  But I think there are moments that demand a response not because you’re a public figure but because you’re a human being ». Very well said.

During her speech, Anne talked about paid parental leave for all parents, same sex marriage and of course women’s rights. As a new mom, she said that the arrival of her son has completely changed the way she thinks.
Though her plea was mostly directed at women, it encouraged everyone to join hands and keep the battle towards gender equality alive.

Fantastic actress, inspiring speaker, Anne Hathaway seems to have it ALL!

When Obama (sort of) covers Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You"

Stories - April 10, 2017

Say what you will about the Internet, one thing is for sure; it’s a hub of creativity. Its latest stroke of genius: a Barack Obama/Ed Sheeran mash-up.

Mr. Obama has maintained a low profile ever since the end of his presidential run. It seems like the World Wide Web is missing him sincerely, so much that someone decided to create an Obama rendition of Ed Sheeran’s mega-hit “Shape Of You”.

Based on the many speeches he has delivered throughout his presidential run, it’s a hilarious take on the #1 song and a fantastic accompanying video. Check it out for yourself!

How awesome would it be if Ed invited Barack to sing the song with him on stage?

Ed Sheeran: “being weird is a wonderful thing”

Stories - April 11, 2017

He might be the biggest artist on the planet right now, Ed Sheeran has had his fair share of personal hurdles in the past.

In this video from 2015, which has re-surfaced a few days ago, Ed can be seen accepting an award from the American Institute For Stuttering which is an organization that provides universally affordable speech therapy to people who stutter. Having dealt with stuttering himself, he explained how he considered himself “a weird child” growing up and let the audience know that Eminem’s “The Marshall Matters LP” helped him overcome his disorder. He urged those who are suffering from it not to treat it as an issue and to just get the help they need.
A very poignant watch, Sheeran encouraged everyone to embrace their differences, stating: “being weird is a wonderful thing”.

As much as we enjoy dancing to their music, crying in front of their movies and so on, we love seeing celebrities putting the glam on hold and give us raw and honest moments like those.
Ed, we love your “weirdness”!
