          L'Amica Geniale: nella seconda puntata la competizione tra Lila e Lenù divide il pubblico      Cache   Translate Page      
-

Per le ragazze - e anche per i ragazzi - l'adolescenza è una corsa a ostacoli, che può vederle trionfare o inciampare rovinosamente. C'è competizione, nell'adolescenza. Essere la prima o l'ultima ragazza a veder crescere il seno conta. Essere la prima o l'ultima ragazza ad uscire con un ragazzo conta. Come contano molte altre cose. Ogni ragazza combatte una battaglia con se stessa per sentirsi "adeguata", per sentirsi giusta su questo mondo. Accade nella realtà, ma anche nella finzione: come, per esempio, nel terzo e quarto episodio de L'amica geniale, andati in onda il 4 dicembre su Rai Uno.

Nel secondo prime time che "l'ammiraglia" Rai ha riservato alla serie tv tratta dal romanzo di Elena Ferrante, Lila e Lenù sono cresciute e devono affrontare la difficilissima fase che precede l'età adulta, ma anche le differenze personali che rischiano di lacerare il loro legame. A dare il volto alle due amiche adolescenti sono Gaia Girace e Margherita Mazzucco. Un appuntamento con le amatissime protagoniste che gli spettatori, dopo il successo dei primi due episodi, hanno atteso con impazienza.

Elena, che può ancora frequentare la scuola, conserva una certa ingenuità rispetto alle questioni sessuali, anche se il suo corpo ha fatto un passo in avanti anticipato rispetto a quello di Lila: si sorprende scoprendo che non sta per morire quando in bagno, asciugandosi, vede del sangue.

Lila è esasperata: non solo la sua più cara amica ha la fortuna di poter studiare, ma la sta anche sorpassando nel cammino verso la femminilità. Il fastidio è così tanto che, dinanzi alla notizia del menarca (o' marchese, nel dialetto delle protagoniste) di Lenù, l'amica risponde: "Io non ce l'ho ancora perché non voglio averlo. Mi fa schifo e mi fa schifo chi ce l'ha". Inevitabili le reazioni dei social.

Nei nuovi episodi, la diversità dei destini di Lila e Lenù sembra allontanarle, ma gli spettatori sembrano convinti del contrario e sottolineano anche la bellezza acqua e sapone delle protagoniste.

Le ragazze si trovano ad affrontare una nuova fase, in cui le coetanee sperimentano l'approccio con la sessualità. Un approccio che talvolta, come nel caso della giovane Ada, sfocia in tragedia. Il pubblico non ha potuto che empatizzare col personaggio.

Dopo i piccoli problemi dell'età dell'innocenza, iniziano problemi più grossi durante l'adolescenza, che in quel periodo immagino fosse ben più complessa di adesso #LAmicaGeniale#MyBrilliantFriendpic.twitter.com/MCJR2uKJco

Il confronto con le cronache dei giorni nostri è inevitabile.

Intanto Elena continua a studiare, ma fatica a prendere buoni voti. Lila, invece, è ormai una giovanissima lavoratrice che, nonostante l'addio agli studi, riesce ad aiutare l'amica con il latino ("Lo studio perché è bellissimo", confessa a Lenù). I social non possono che fare il tifo per la volenterosa Lila.

Raffaella finisce col mettere in ombra Elena, quando il rione scopre che è stata proprio lei ad aver letto tutti i libri della biblioteca di quartiere. Su internet, gli utenti provano lo stesso stupore.

Intanto Elena, non solo riceve il primo invito ad uscire con un ragazzo, ma viene anche appoggiata dalla maestra Oliviero, che convince la sua famiglia a farla iscrivere al ginnasio. Sui social, reazioni commosse ma anche battute al vetriolo.

Ma, più avanti, la bellezza di Lila fiorisce e i ragazzi del rione sono ammaliati. Intanto, il legame tra le due amiche pare rinsaldarsi, nonostante Elena si senta sempre inferiore a Raffaella.

Insomma, il rapporto di amore e confronto tra Elena e Raffaella sembra aver spaccato il pubblico di Rai Uno: da un lato i sostenitori della pervicace Lila e dall'altro quelli della più fortunata Lenù. Una serata che ha bissato il successo dei primi due episodi, proprio nel giorno in cui Hbo e Rai hanno confermato che per la serie ci sarà un sequel: la seconda stagione sarà basata su Storia del nuovo cognome, il secondo libro della tetralogia di Elena Ferrante.

Secondo il Time, la serie è "tutto ciò che l'adattamento di un grande libro dovrebbe essere", mentre Rolling Stone ha osservato come gli episodi raccontino la storia "con bellezza e grazia", aggiungendo, che "è una grande serie con un cuore enorme". La CNN ha elogiato L'amica geniale per il racconto di "un mondo a volte doloroso, a volte commovente, ma comunque bellissimo". Il Wall Street Journal, infine, ha definito "sorprendente" questo prodotto televisivo.


          In the rush for ‘more’ video content, brands are forgetting basic marketing: The Drum and JW Player panel      Cache   Translate Page      

6 seconds? 15 seconds? A movie? Animation? There have never been more opinions flying around on what brand video needs to succeed. The Drum, in association with JW Player, invited industry experts to a panel discussion to look at how the world of video is evolving and where it is headed.

The length of video content might have become something of an obsession for the industry, but for most consumers advertising is off-putting “regardless of its length” according to Roslyn Shaw, managing director at Alpha Grid. Although she claimed she’d found a way to skirt around this issue.

Not everyone hates video advertising

“When users say they hate video advertising, they're really saying they hate a video that's dressed up like advertising. They're so used to that, they've learnt to switch off, “ she explained.

“Consumers don’t mind brands but they do mind you following that formula of advertising where you're just preaching,” she later added. “The campaign has to look and feel like an actual piece of video content that people would want to watch.”

Nick Palmer, head of beyond advertising at MediaCom disagreed and said he believes that it is the industry’s lack of understanding of how video advertising works that’s the real problem.

“The language used around video advertising needs to get more advanced,” he said. “Customers have never massively enjoyed advertising but they’ve always understood that there's a value exchange somewhere along the line.” Palmer pointed to YouTube’s low subscription rates as a prime example of consumers realising the value exchange on offer and accepting ads in place of payment. “The dynamic is changing around the amount of content you get versus the amount of advertising you receive, which is where we need to find a balancing act,” he added.

Value of video

But it’s early days for consumers to fully understand and respect the value of advertising across these new mediums.

“The market has to figure out what the natural peer point value exchange is and what the right scenario for advertising is,” Amobee CCO Ryan Jamboretz said. “People are figuring it out. The most advanced brands are doing it much more quickly. I’m constantly thinking about where we’ll be in the next five years, when we can really start to hone in on the natural efficacy of video.”

But all these changes in technology have led some marketers to question what constitutes as advertising today.

“It's all about context,” said Unlimited Group CMO, Sarah Shilling, pointing out how willing viewers are to watch an ad at the cinema. “Viewers are much more tolerant of ads if you can get three things right. Make sure it's insight-driven, has some kind of value and is relevant to your audience.”

For instance, take the most recent Iceland ad ‘Say Hello to Rang-tan!’ which was taken off-air after it was deemed too political.  “Although it was banned on TV,” said Shilling, “it was signposted by several celebrities across social, which is a dream for any brand. It doesn’t need the kudos of being anywhere else; it has the power of being socially mobilised through influencers across lots of channels.”

Insights drive video marketing

And of course, by using data insights to inform creativity, brands are more likely to gain traction and cut through, agreed the panel.

“If you are insight-driven, you get forgiven,” added Shilling. “And if you’re insight-driven, you have the permissibility to then show the story you want to tell. You have to go out and gain that trust. Campaigns should be insight-driven and have creative push to enable the brand to get to where it wants to be.”

Of course, using insights alone means that marketers tend to forget other practices, such as how to effectively build a brand. “We've become lazy as marketers at brand building,” quipped Palmer. “There’ve been a lot of conversations around engagement, often at the expense of the brand. The two aren't polar opposites but we do tend to treat them as such.”

Jamboretz agreed, sharing his surprise at how inconsistent brands can be from season to season, year on year, seeking constant reinvention rather than clearly plugging their message.

“We need to remember the stuff that we knew 10-15 years ago,” he added. “Rather than ripping up the rulebook, basic learnings like frequency of message do apply. You get brands promoting a video, and then never showing it again.

“Simple media planning techniques should be adopted. They may need to be adapted, sure, but not forgotten. In this rush for content, people have forgotten everything; we need to re-examine what we knew and what we need to know.”

Acting with purpose

Inevitably perhaps, there’s an awareness within society towards acting with purpose and ethics.  “It’s not just about understanding what’s happening in adland,” said Shaw, “but understanding what’s happening in the world.

“There’s a huge shift from consumers want to hear about ethical decision making. I hope this means we'll see a lot more brands being bolder.”

Although, the age-old question over whether brands should market their ethical stance just because they can divided the panel. Palmer said that brands should not force this viewpoint only to leverage it as a marketing tool “as that would be obviously dishonest, and will be seen as one”.

Ultimately, it’s about brands being clever and working out what opportunities are available to them, according to Joe Media content director, Brian Whelan.

As Shilling concluded, “It may be a new age, but really it’s just about adapting to new formats. It’s just the same really, it’s still video; we’ve just got to process the platforms the video campaigns live on.”

          PHOTOS: Up close and personal with Greenland’s massive ice sheet      Cache   Translate Page      

This story is part of our series The Big Melt. It comes to us through a partnership with the podcast and radio program Threshold, with funding support from the Pulitzer Center.

Greenland’s ice sheet seems to stretch out forever. It slowly rises from the edge of the ocean to more than 10,000 feet in the center. Some of the ice is more than a hundred thousand years old and all of it originally fell here as snow. The research team shown here are trying to figure out just how this mountain of ice is moving into the sea, and how fast.

As we warm the planet, we're knocking this ice sheet out of balance — it’s losing more ice than it’s gaining. And that has big implications for rising sea levels. Six hundred million people live in coastal areas less than 32 feet above sea level. As the Greenland ice sheet melts away, an awful lot of those people are going to have to find somewhere else to live. That's a recipe for intense societal disruption — hunger, disease and conflict.

Some of the surface of the Greenland ice sheet melts every summer, forming streams, rivers and lakes that often empty into holes and fissures. This is a normal process, but as humans warm the planet, surface melt is increasing and more water is flowing off the ice sheet than is accumulating. If the entire ice sheet melted, it would cause sea level to rise roughly 23 feet, inundating coastal areas around the world.

How does the shape of the underlying bed change how this enormous ice cube moves? That’s one of the questions this team is trying to answer. But the Greenland ice sheet is 10,000 feet thick in the center. “You can't go there. You can't see it. It's really hard to put instruments there,” Harper says. That’s why he has his students working on mapping the bed with radar. “We're just doing basic research trying to understand more about how the ice moves,” he says.

The work these scientists are doing intersects with a basic fact of human psychology: change is hard, and the faster the change, the harder it is. “It's all about the rate,” glaciologist Joel Harper says, and whether society will have more time or less to respond to a drastic rise in sea levels. “You know, if it takes three or four millennia to get a large amount of melt from Greenland into the ocean that's a completely different societal issue if its a century, or two, or three.”

The Arctic may seem remote, Humphrey says, but changes here affect the whole planet. “We're talking about raising sea level 10, 20 feet. You're going to displace hundreds of millions of people. They're going to be upset. They're going to want to go somewhere better. A guaranteed way to end up needing to fight wars is to have millions of people displaced and angry ... This seems like a disaster that one might want to avoid.”

          ITU signs a new development contract with the European Triathlon Union      Cache   Translate Page      
ITU is pleased to announce it has signed the Development Grant contract with the European Triathlon Union (ETU) for the year 2019. “I am really proud and excited with this contract, that will allow, once more, to help the development of triathlon in all regions in Europe”, said ITU President and IOC member, Marisol Casado. “ETU’s plan for 2019 covers many different National Federations and projects, with a special focus on fostering the growth of National Federations and developing talent in athletes and coaches, which shows how connected ETU President Renato Bertrandi is with the development necessities of European nations.” ETU President Renato Bertrandi presented a plan to use the funds offered by ITU to provide development camps in Cyprus and Serbia, as well as support for the Youth Triathlon Festival Camp in Slovenia, and four training sessions for the ETU Development Team. After signing the agreement, Bertrandi said, “We have listened very carefully to the needs and the “wish list” from our National Federations, athletes, coaches and Officials in order to develop a comprehensive programme that covers as many areas as we can, and that will help to consolidate the work of our Development experts across the Continent. I would like once again to extend my deep gratitude to ITU for the continued support and faith in our work and I look forward to seeing our new athletes race in 2019 and onwards.” ETU will give support to Belarus and Cyprus to help them organize the Youth Triathlon Festival Camp, and also to Bulgaria for a Talent identification camp. Estonia, Greece, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxemburg, FYR Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Romania and Slovenia will receive funding for some development projects, including TriGirls programmes, coaches education or the launch of the programme We are the Future, for kids of 14 years or younger.

          Watch Hafthor Bjornsson (Somewhat) Easily Squat 980 Pounds      Cache   Translate Page      


Game of Thrones star Hafthor "Thor" Björnsson continues to lift more than the rest of us could even dream of, and on Monday, he quite literally raised the bar with an incredible 980-pound squat. 

This isn’t just a random feat of strength (but if it was, we wouldn’t be complaining). Björnsson is preparing to compete in his very own meet, “Thor’s Powerlifting Challenge,” on December 15 in Laugardalshöll, Reykjavík, Iceland. We’ve been following his training, showcasing his previous personal record of 880 pounds a few weeks back. What’s even more incredible about "The Mountain" is that he's known more for his strongman success than his traditional powerlifting PRs. But he's still as impressive as anyone that steps foot into the squat rack. 

We’ll keep you posted on his progress and the results of the meet when it takes place later this month.

          Razer Blade Stealth updated with a refreshed design, 4K screen, and Windows Hell ...      Cache   Translate Page      

Razer is updating one of its most recognizable laptops, the 13.3-inch Blade Stealth, with a new chassis and specs. The updated Blade Stealth can be configured as a full HD, battery-conscious laptop or a 4K touchscreen machine with discrete graphics. Ultimately, this is going to be Razer’s most portable and affordable laptop, putting it in direct competition with machines from Apple and Dell.

The big deal with the Stealth’s fall refresh is its changing footprint. At first glance, I thought the new Blade Stealth was smaller than the previous generation, until I placed them side by side. In reality, the 2.82-pound laptop is actually four-tenths of an inch thicker, with thinner 4.9mm bezels flanking the screen (which are 60 percent thinner than the last gen’s) that make it appear to have a smaller footprint. It also has a smaller power brick for charging over USB-C.

Razer revamped the Stealth’s speaker setup, with four Dolby Atmos tuned speakers (two more than before) on both sides of the keyboard. There’s also a larger windows Precision Touchpad than before, complete with native gesture support.

You might be getting slightly more for your money this year, too: the new Blade Stealth starts with a quad-core processor, but with the same $1,399 starting price. Previously, you’d only get two cores, and $1,499 would get you a quad-core chip.

The new Blade Stealth has an Intel Core i7-8565U quad-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz (Turbo Boost to 4.6GHz), Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics, 8GB RAM, a 1080p matte screen (with 100 percent sRGB coverage), and a slower 256GB SATA SSD.

If that’s not enough power, you can upgrade the Blade Stealth laptop to a 4K glossy touchscreen, a new 25-watt version of Nvidia’s MX150 discrete graphics chip that Razer claims is fast enough to play League or Fortnite (on lower settings) at 1080p or 4K, 16GB RAM, and a faster 512GB PCIe solid state drive. These upgrades push the Stealth’s price tag up to the $1,899 mark.

On its own, the Stealth isn’t a gaming laptop (even with the MX150 chip), but both models still have eGPU support. That’ll allow you to use an enclosure like Razer’s own Core dock to attach a desktop-class GPU over a Thunderbolt 3 connection, with four PCIe lanes capable of 40GBps data transfers.

Razer hasn’t retained the individual Chroma key backlighting we’ve seen in the advanced Blade 15 and the last-gen Stealth. Instead, Razer swapped it for the single-zone layout in the base Blade 15 in order to conserve battery life, which company reps claim is “up to 13 hours” on the base 1080p Stealth, or three hours more than previously claimed with the last-gen Stealth. We’ll see how that pans out when we review the new Stealth in the coming weeks.


Razer Blade Stealth updated with a refreshed design, 4K screen, and Windows Hell ...

The new Blade Stealth in matte FHD (left) and glossy 4K (right) screen configurations.

Another new hardware addition is the IR camera mounted at the top of the display that allows you to log in to the Blade Stealth using Windows Hello facial recognition. It’s been a heavily requested feature of mine on previous Blade laptops, so it’s great to see facial recognition finally making an appearance in their lineup.

The new Razer Blade Stealth launches today, starting at $1,399 fromRazer.com and select retailers in the US and Canada. It’s also coming soon to retailers in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, China, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan.

The new legislation, which came into force on Tuesday, allows member states to reduce or do away with VAT on digital publications such as ebooks, audiobooks, journals and newspaper subscriptions. France, Italy and Iceland have already declared they will lower their taxes on digital publications.

          Broken Box Theater Presents SKIN      Cache   Translate Page      

The award-winning Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) is pleased to announce their Off-Broadway production of SKIN, a collection of new collaborative pieces created by the company's resident ensemble, which begins previews Friday, January 18, 2019 and opens Thursday, January 24th, 2019 at the Jeffrey and Paula Gural Theatre at the A.R.T./New York Theatres (502 West 53rd Street at 10th Avenue). Set to original music, this new young company takes throwback French pantomime and reimagines it through the lense of contemporary American theatre.

At each performance of SKIN, the company employs the audience to use their imagination, filling in each invisible world with their own ideas and memories, in turn leading to a uniquely engaging theatrical experience. SKIN is led by Artistic Director Becky Baumwoll and is comprised of the same range of stories that have catapulted BKBX among NYC's favorite storytellers-original plays that run the gamut from farcical comedy to heart-warming drama to contemplative abstraction and every which way in between. SKIN will play a limited engagement through Sunday, February 3rd, 2019. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door, with an early bird special of $20, if tickets are ordered before December 15. For more information and to purchase tickets visit www.brokenboxmime.com or call 800-838-3006.

After their triumphant inaugural Off-Broadway production of See Reverse, Broken Box Mime Theater returns Off-Broadway with an all-new collection of shorts in SKIN, an evening exploring themes with deep connection to this simple word and its many interpretations in today's dialogue-from barriers and race to vulnerability and strength, ultimately culminating in a universal theme of rebirth, something familiar, yet changing. BKBX's comedy is highlighted in pieces like "Celebrity Guest Star," in which a popular sitcom is forced to carry the burden of a truly humorless guest actor, and the fierce competition of impressive manscaping in "The 16th Annual Brooklyn Beard Awards." The company also touches on hot button contemporary issues in "#Hashtag," exploring the gray areas of consent and memory on a first date, as well as the attempt of a young man to revise memories of his misogynistic father in the #MeToo era in "Fall From Grace." The more than a dozen short plays in SKIN combine to create an engaging and empowering theatrical experience, all told without a single spoken word.

The cast of SKIN includes Broken Box Mime Theater company members Nick Abeel, Becky Baumwoll, Duane Cooper, Blake Habermann, David Jenkins, Marissa Molnar, Joél Pérez, Regan Sims, and Matt Zambrano. Lighting design is by Jamie Roderick, and Esti Bernstein serves as stage manager. Additional company members of BKBX include Géraldine Dulex, Ismael Castillo, Dinah Berkeley, and Tasha Milkman.

BKBX is deeply committed to the inclusive nature of theatre and mime, and will offer tailored services throughout the run of SKIN to accommodate all individuals. Relaxed performances will be offered on Sunday, January 27 and Sunday, February 3 at 2pm, providing accessibility to audience members with neurodivergence, as well as families with babies or children who may need to move and verbalize during the performance. A "visual story" is available in advance of every performance, including program notes on each piece and description of the musical soundtrack, for individuals who may need to prepare for their evening in the theatre.

Additional events include a Singles Night on Friday, January 25 at 7pm, which includes a drink with ticket purchase and seating next to another single. The Out Loud Series, a post-show talkback with the company and community leaders, will take place after all weeknight performances on Wednesday, January 23; Thursday, January 24; Wednesday, January 30; and Thursday, January 31.

The playing schedule for SKIN is as follows: Wednesdays - Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 2pm. Previews begin Friday, January 18 with official opening night set for Thursday, January 24, plus a special added performance on Monday, January 28 at 7pm. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door, with an early bird special of $20 (if tickets are purchased before December 15). For more information and to purchase tickets, visit: www.brokenboxmime.com or by call 800-838-3006.
