The Parkour Performance
MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
The concept of Parkour was thought of by a then-teenager named David Belle in a small place called Lisses, near Paris, France. His father, Raymond Belle was a hero fireman and acrobat. This was in the 90s, and the teenager was greatly influenced by Spiderman and Tarzan. His acrobatic ways made him a celebrity and created a huge fan following.
Parkour is a made-up word, cousin to the French parcours, which means “route.”
A prominent disciple of Parkour is Mark Toorock, from Washington DC, who follows David Belle, and hosts a website called American Parkour (at the beginning of the 2000's)
He was impressed by the stunts and the daring shown by David and has followed it in a low-key (less dangerous) way.
The world of climbing walls without stairs and jumping off rooftops without any rope or parachute is filled with risk, thrill and adventure.
It also has its own naming system. Someone practising parkour is called a ‘traceur’, someone who traces David Belle’s footsteps. A female traceur is called a traceuse.
There is a significant relationship between competitive profit gains and diversity.
Companies with gender, ethnic and racial diversity are at least 15 percent more likely to experience above-average financial returns.
Genius is tied up with precocity. We think brilliance requires youth and energy and freshness. Mozart wrote his breakthrough Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-Flat-Major at the age of twenty-one. T.S. Eliot wrote "The Love Song of J.Alfred Prufrock" at the age of twenty-three
Economist David Galenson decided to find out whether the assumption is true that creativity, when discovered early, burns brightly, and then die out at an early age. He found that is what not so. Some are late bloomers. Mark Twain published "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" at forty-nine. Daniel Defoe wrote "Robinson Crusoe" at fifty-eight.
