          Geraint Thomas enjoys 'sadistic' suffering as he seeks Tour de France form      Cache   Translate Page      

Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) has no regrets about celebrating his Tour de France victory long and hard into winter, finding the recent suffering he has needed to get back to form as 'sadistic' but enjoyable.

Thomas only raced the Deutschland Tour and the Tour of Britain after winning Tour de France and was determined to savour every minute of the celebrations despite warnings from Team Sky to watch his weight and keep riding. Thomas was visibly heavier than his racing weight at the Saitama and Shanghai criteriums in November and only got back into regular training in early December.

He has since done blocks of training in Los Angeles, raced the Vuelta a Valenciana in Spain and spent time at altitude on Mount Teide. He has lost much of the weight he gained during the winter but is not yet competitive in races.

“It was definitely worth it, you never know how often you win the Tour. It could be the last race I ever win so at least I enjoyed it,” Thomas said before Tirreno-Adriatico, where he will share team leadership with Wout Poels.

“I knew it was going to be really hard work, but that's what I enjoy in a bit of a sadistic way. I enjoyed training hard and getting back. When you start to feel that condition coming and you start to lose that bit of weight and you are going up the climbs a little bit quicker, it's just a snowball effect. You thrive off of that. I just enjoy that side of bike racing, the riding and training.”

Thomas revealed that Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) had teased him about how big he was in November before the Tirreno-Adriatico photo shoot on Tuesday. He avoided the scales for a while.

Tirreno-Adriatico perhaps a bit too punchy

          «Ενήλικοι στο Δωμάτιο»: Ξεκίνησαν στην Αθήνα τα γυρίσματα της νέας ταινίας του Γαβρά      Cache   Translate Page      

«Έχουν ήδη ξεκινήσει στην Αθήνα τα γυρίσματα της νέας μου ταινίας ‘Ενήλικοι στο Δωμάτιο’ [Adults in the Room]. Τα διάρκειας 12 εβδομάδων γυρίσματα θα γίνουν επίσης στο Παρίσι, τη Ρίγα, τις Βρυξέλλες, τη Φρανκφούρτη και το Λονδίνο» δηλώνει ο Κώστας Γαβράς μέσω της Odeon.

Στο σημείωμα του, ο κορυφαίος Έλληνας σκηνοθέτης αναφέρεται εκτός των άλλων, στη διανομή, στους συνεργάτες του, αλλά και στη συμπαραγωγή. 

Ακολουθεί το σημείωμα του Κώστα Γαβρά

«Η ιστορία μιας χώρας και του λαού της, παγιδευμένων σε ένα δίκτυο εξουσίας: ο φαύλος κύκλος των συναντήσεων του Eurogroup που επέβαλε τη δικτατορία της λιτότητας στην Ελλάδα. Πίσω από τις κλειστές πόρτες, παίζεται μια ανθρώπινη τραγωδία. Μια αρχαία ελληνική τραγωδία στη σύγχρονη εποχή.

Έχουμε εξασφαλίσει μια ομάδα από κορυφαίους ηθοποιούς από την Ελλάδα και άλλες ευρωπαϊκές χώρες.

Να αναφέρω πρώτα τους «φιλοξενούμενούς» μας: ένα θερμό καλωσόρισμα λοιπόν στον Ούλριχ Τούκουρ, με τον οποίο συνεργάζομαι με χαρά για τέταρτη φορά, και τους Νταν Σούρμανς, Ζοσιάν Πανσόν, Ορελιάν Ρεκουάν, Βίνσεντ Νέμεθ, Κορνίλιους Ομπόνια, Χένρικ Μπιρτς, και Φραντσέσκο Ακουαρόλι.

Και από την Ελλάδα: Χρήστος Λούλης, Αλέξανδρος Μπουρδούμης, Δημήτρης Τάρλοου, Χρήστος Στέργιογλου, Θάνος Τοκάκης, Θέμης Πάνου και πολλοί άλλοι, συμπεριλαμβανομένης μιας ειδικής εμφάνισης της Βαλέρια Γκολίνο.

Σε προσωπικό επίπεδο, είμαι πολύ χαρούμενος που γυρίζω την ταινία εδώ στην Αθήνα, όπου και μπορώ να μιλάω ελληνικά με το εξαιρετικό μου συνεργείο, που αποτελείται από τον Γιώργο Αρβανίτη (διευθυντής φωτογραφίας), τον Σπύρο Λάσκαρη (καλλιτεχνικός διευθυντής), τον Άγη Παναγιώτου (κοστούμια) και τους δύο ταλαντούχους πρώτους βοηθούς σκηνοθέτη, Αρσένη Πολυμενόπουλο και Χρήστο Χουλιάρα και τους υπόλοιπους τεχνικούς μας.

Οι τοποθεσίες που βρήκαμε εδώ στην Αθήνα για τα γυρίσματα είναι τόσο υπέροχες όσο η ζεστασιά και η φιλοξενία των ανθρώπων.

Πρέπει επίσης να προσθέσω ότι το πρόγραμμα του ΕΚΟΜΕ είναι μεγάλη βοήθεια για τις παραγωγές που γίνονται στην Ελλάδα. Ως εκ τούτου, θα ήθελα να εκφράσω ένα μεγάλο «ευχαριστώ» στο Υπουργείο Ψηφιακής Πολιτικής, Τηλεπικοινωνιών και Ενημέρωσης.

Ο Νίκος Παππάς και ο Λευτέρης Κρέτσος έκαναν σπουδαία δουλειά θέτοντας σε εφαρμογή το πρόγραμμα του ΕΚΟΜΕ σε τόσο σύντομο χρονικό διάστημα. Τώρα πια, γυρίζονται στην Ελλάδα περισσότερες ξένες παραγωγές από ποτέ.

Φυσικά, μην παραλείψω να αναφέρω και την προσωπική μου παραγωγό και σύζυγό μου Μισέλ Ρέι για την πολύτιμη συμβολή της.

Ο συμπαραγωγός μας εδώ στην Ελλάδα, ο Μάνος Κρεζίας από την ODEON (ο οποίος υπήρξε και συμπαραγωγός μας στην ταινία «Παράδεισος στη Δύση» πριν από 10 χρόνια), είναι ξανά κοντά μας, με τον Κώστα Λαμπρόπουλο στη διεύθυνση εκτέλεσης παραγωγής.

Στη Γαλλία συμπαραγωγοί μας είναι η France Télévisions και η Wild Bunch. Η Wild Bunch κατέχει επίσης τα δικαιώματα διανομής στη Γαλλία αλλά και παγκοσμίως. Και ως συνήθως το Canal Plus υποστηρίζει την ταινία.

 Χάρη σε όλους εσάς, έχω μια τεράστια πρόκληση μπροστά μου: να μη σας απογοητεύσω».

Lyon-Turin tunnel: a strategic key project for France, Italy and Europe

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has asked France and the European Union to rediscuss the plans for a Lyon-Turin rail link and the distribution of costs. France holds firm in its belief that the planned rail link is worthwhile.
 
The Government has taken note of the Italian government's concerns over the planned Lyon-Turin link. For its part, France remains convinced that this flagship project is wholly of interest for trade and movements between our two nations and for Europe.

Backed by France and Italy for almost three decades already, the Lyon-Turin rail link is underpinned by a bilateral treaty ratified in 2017, and has secured European funding for 40% of the budget for building the cross-border tunnel. France reiterates its commitment to honour the pledges made and the project delivery dates.

Building of the cross-border tunnel and its French access points has been included in the investment planning outlined in the framework mobility bill. The Minister for Transport has also set an in-depth work process in motion with the local authorities for the delivery of the French access points.

France has always respected the Italian government's wishes to engage in discussions on this project, and is naturally open to holding talks between partners.

During this discussion phase, at the next Board meeting of TELT (Tunnel Euralpin Lyon Turin) France is in favour of launching the notifications for calls for applications necessary for work on the tunnel to continue. This will make it possible both to allow for the discussion period Italy wants and to maintain European funding.

Moradores da Graça contestam construção de condomínio de luxo em logradouro antes cheio de árvores
Samuel Alemão
Texto
12 Março, 2019

O que era um terreno de 0,6 hectares, densamente arborizado, numa encosta com vista sobre o Tejo, prepara-se para ser cenário de construção de um condomínio de luxo – com apartamentos a custarem entre 600 mil e dois milhões de euros. Algo de que os moradores ficaram a saber, há poucas semanas, quando as máquinas entraram pelo logradouro adentro e derrubaram quase todas as árvores. Depois do choque, mobilizam-se para suspender o projecto. Exigem discussão pública do mesmo. Mas a Stone Capital, empresa promotora, ligada a projectos polémicos como o Palácio de Santa Helena, em Alfama, ou os contentores do Martim Moniz, diz que muita da contestação não passa de desinformação. A começar pelo facto de, garante, todos os trâmites legais terem sido seguidos. Mais, a Stone assegura que, ao contrário do que é dito, o logradouro verde até vai aumentar e serão plantadas árvores. “Este projecto vai fazer muito pela Graça, vai requalificar uma zona que actualmente tem maioritariamente espécies infestastes e vai trazer lugares de estacionamento para residentes”, assegura.

Era um local quase paradisíaco no coração de um dos bairros mais típicos de Lisboa, uma mancha verde com árvores de grande porte e vegetação diversa em plena Graça. Mas, numa manhã de Janeiro passado, as máquinas vieram e destruíram quase tudo. A intervenção de preparação do terreno para a construção de um condomínio de luxo, cuja comercialização é feita sob a designação “Jardim da Glória”, acordou de forma abrupta para a nova realidade os residentes do quarteirão  compreendido pelas ruas Josefa de Óbidos, das Beatas e da Senhora da Glória. “Nunca nos passou pela cabeça que fossem construir algo deste género, nesta zona, num terreno de logradouro que é permeável e com tantas árvores. Vão destruir a qualidade de vida as pessoas que já aqui viviam. Vamos ter uma aldeia de ricos a tapar a vista à aldeia dos pobres”, queixa-se Alexandra Vidal, 38 anos, a morar no rés-do-chão do número 22 de Rua Josefa de Óbidos há meia dúzia de anos. Como ela, outros estão agora a aperceber-se do impacto que o empreendimento terá no seu quotidiano. E por isso estão mobilizar-se.

Desde a semana passada, está a circular uma petição sob o mote “Não ao Jardim da Glória sem discussão pública. Não a um loteamento de luxo com destruição ambiental e patrimonial no coração da Graça”. Através dela, pede-se que o projecto seja suspenso até que o mesmo possa ser “tratado por todos como o loteamento que de facto é”. Algo que não sucedeu. O empreendimento da Stone Capital – empresa responsável por alguns dos mais polémicos projectos da capital, como o Palácio de Santa Helena (Alfama) ou a requalificação do Martim Moniz, esta através da participação na empresa Moonbrigade, Lda – ocupará grande parte da área de um logradouro com 6.249 metros quadrados. O projecto prevê a construção de 40 apartamentos com áreas entre os 45 e os 450 metros quadrados (a custarem entre 600 mil e dois milhões de euros ), estacionamento subterrâneo, piscina, spa e zona lounge, jardim e parque infantil. Apesar da dimensão da obra e das profundas alterações que o terreno sofrerá, os moradores dizem que nada sabiam sobre o projecto, até ao corte de árvores.

Isso mesmo é salientado nos considerandos da petição, na qual se lê que, a 20 de Fevereiro “máquinas de obras destruíram quase 5 hectares (sic) de árvores e mato, de um imenso logradouro muito antigo, de um “pulmão verde” entre quatro ruas e quatro eixos de prédios, um elemento vital para o equilíbrio ambiental da zona e da cidade de Lisboa” – área que, de acordo com o Plano Director Municipal (PDM) em vigor, será na sua maior parte “logradouro verde permeável a preservar (espaço consolidado)”. De acordo com os promotores da recolha de assinaturas contra o projecto, a referida acção aconteceu “sem aviso prévio”. Mas também, alegam, sem a necessária presença de técnicos, sem a existência de estudos fitossanitários, como o Regulamento Municipal do Arvoredo determina, e, “como o imenso terreno fica ao lado da Capela Senhora da Glória, sem a respectiva avaliação arqueológica”. Pior, dizem, o empreendimento deveria obedecer aos procedimentos de um loteamento, mas acabou por ser aprovado pelos serviços de urbanismo da Câmara de Lisboa “como se não o fosse”.

Algo que terá contribuído para apanhar a comunidade desprevenida, alega-se na Graça. “Como não houve comunicação prévia, foi uma surpresa. Grande parte dos vizinhos não sabe o que vai acontecer. Sabia-se que havia um projecto qualquer, até porque havia obras no prédio com o número 16 da Rua das Beatas, onde é a entrada para este terreno, mas nada de concreto”, diz Nicolas Sousa, um dos moradores da zona – e que prefere manter a sua morada incógnita -, recordando o choque sentido por quem, a 23 de Janeiro, viu as máquinas entrarem por aquele oásis urbano e cortarem a primeiro árvore do logradouro, localizada numa zona que se suponha de protecção ambiental. Depois disso, voltou a acontecer uma grande intervenção, a 20 de Fevereiro, quando cortaram todas as árvores altas que restavam, com excepção de uma junto ao quintal de uma moradora. Viajando com frequência para o estrangeiro, Nicolas não assistiu a tal momento. Mas o que viu depois deixou marcas. “Quando voltei, apanhei um susto, estava perante uma paisagem apocalíptica”, descreve.

 E a estupefacção de Nicolas, como dos restantes, com a intervenção em curso é tanto maior quanto, asseguram, a inexistência de informação pública transparente sobre o que ali estaria para acontecer. Para além das movimentações de operários no mencionado número 16 da Ruas das Beatas, os moradores daquela área dizem que nada faria supor o que agora se lhes assemelha a um pesadelo. Até porque a única comunicação a prévia a que supostamente tiveram acesso, através de uma carta enviada a cada um, a 3 de Julho passado, dificilmente deixaria adivinhar a dimensão da intervenção. Na missiva enviada pela firma Percurso Positivo, Lda, que tem a mesma morada da Stone Capital, os destinatários eram informados de que a mesma iria avançar com “obras de construção com execução de obras de escavação geral e beneficiação de muros periféricos”. Para além de garantir o cumprimento de todas as normas de segurança, a carta asseverava que a intervenção iria “contribuir para a melhoria da qualidade urbanística, social e ambiental desta freguesia e consequentemente da cidade de Lisboa”, comprometendo-se ainda a minimizar eventuais incómodos causados pelos trabalhos.

 Só que os incómodos aparentam ser de uma escala bem maior, tal o grau de contestação que se vai fazendo sentir na Graça. “Os moradores dos prédios em volta do logradouro vão perder a vista sobre o Tejo e sobre uma área verde natural, para receberem em troca uma vista sobre dois enormes prédios e um pequeno jardim do novo condomínio. E os atuais proprietários desses prédios vão ver o valor imobiliário dessas casas diminuir”, denuncia-se na petição, que pede que o projecto seja suspenso, para que se inicie um processo de consulta pública sobre o mesmo. Algo que, salientam, compreende aviso público, fase de recolha de contributos dos interessados, relatório de ponderação, reformulação (ou não) da proposta e aprovação da mesma em reuniões de câmara e da assembleia municipal. “Dois prédios aqui no meio não fazem sentido nenhum. Isto não deveria ter sido aprovado ou, se fosse, pelo menos que houvesse uma partilha de opinião com as pessoas”, diz Alexandra Vidal. “É muito triste ver isto. Em Lisboa fazem falta espaços verdes”, diz Daniel Santos, 30, morador no último andar do prédio ao lado, o nº 24 da Rua Josefa de Óbidos.

Ora, a apreciação do processo feita pelos residentes contestatários não poderia ser mais distinta da realizada pelos promotores do projecto. Garantindo que o mesmo “seguiu todos os trâmites legais e regulamentares e foi objecto de todos os estudos necessários, tendo sido escrutinado ao longo de quatro longos anos de tramitação”, os representantes da Stone Capital asseguram a O Corvo ter tido profundas preocupações ambientais, segundo inclusivamente as recomendações para o respeito da biodiversidade e da biofilia, elaboradas por uma empresa francesa do ramo. “No final da obra, vamos aumentar o logradouro verde para 4,500 metros quadrados e plantar 67 árvores, 1,600 arbustos e 18 herbáceas. Os dois edifícios no jardim, desenhados pelos arquitectos da ARX, vão ser forrados a madeira para suavizar o seu impacto visual e se integrar no contexto ajardinado”, explica a mesma fonte, antes de notar que “há 20 anos atrás, uma grande parte do terreno estava ocupado com construções” precárias – tendo enviado uma foto como prova.

 “Antes do início das obras de limpeza do terreno, este encontrava-se repleto de espécies de arvoredo infestantes e, de forma geral, mal tratado”, explicam os representantes da Stone Capital, assegurando que no projecto de paisagismo desenvolvido pelo NPK – Arquitectos Paisagistas Associados está projectada a integração de vegetação autóctone promotora de biodiversidade. “No plano da flora a implementar, estão mais de 100 espécies de diferentes portes, sazonalidade, biodiversidade e interesse”, explica a mesma fonte, em resposta escrita às questões enviadas por O Corvo, garantindo ainda que “este projecto vai fazer muito pela Graça, vai requalificar uma zona que actualmente tem maioritariamente espécies infestastes e vai trazer lugares de estacionamento para residentes”. No que se refere à comunicação do projecto aos moradores, a empresa diz ainda que, além da carta enviada em Julho de 2018, foi colocada uma placa de informação sobre o processo de licenciamento na Rua Nossa Senhora da Glória.

          Pájaros de verano      Cache   Translate Page      



El fin de una cultura. Este pudo ser el prometedor centro de Pájaros de verano. El  ambicioso largometraje de Cristina Gallego y Ciro Guerra deja un sabor agridulce. Aun cuando muestra una estimulante mezcla entre cine de género y rasgos más propios del documental, presenta un árido tratamiento de su conflicto central: la destrucción de unas vidas y una cultura a merced de la violencia que trae el narcotráfico. Esa sensación se produce, en buena medida, porque el relato que termina contando se asemeja a tantos otros que giran sobre la destrucción que provoca la incursión de inocentes en el mundo criminal. El apego a la convención nos provee de una guía y disminuye nuestro interés. Pájaros de verano se conforma con ser una buena película, mientras desperdicia la oportunidad de ser un filme excepcional sobre el principal drama del país en los últimos 50 años: el surgimiento de una cultura que ha trastocado las relaciones sociales y económicas. De cualquier manera, debe resaltarse que ese vacío parte de la propia ambición del filme. Los realizadores continúan con una suerte de reconstrucción de relatos de una Colombia que ha sido invisible para la mayoría de sus habitantes como objeto de su filmografía. Su empresa parece ser volver épico una serie de vidas que han sido dejadas al margen. El resultado es una película desigual que en su afán de abarcar un gran espectro termina por oscurecer aquello que en principio ponía como eje principal.


En el principio está el encierro. Zaida (Natalia Reyes) se convierte en mujer. Durante la ceremonia posterior al encierro, Rapayet (José Acosta) baila con ella y decide que debe volverla su esposa. Úrsula (Carmiña Martínez), la madre de Zaida, le pide una dote con la que no cuenta el pretendiente. Entonces surge la posibilidad de satisfacer tales exigencias a través de los réditos de un negocio emergente: traficar con marihuana. Rapayet incursiona en este con la ayuda de su amigo Moisés (John Narváez) y su familiar Aníbal (Juan Bautista). Y así Rapayet logra casarse con Zaida. Pero con el tiempo vendrán también los problemas. Los asesinatos y las venganzas se irán desencadenando del modo en que ocurren en las fábulas aleccionadoras. Pájaros de verano se divide en cantos, como si imitara las epopeyas, como si imitara los mitos wayuu. En tanto, el filme recupera tradiciones que viven en las orillas, su desarrollo dramático sigue el de los relatos morales occidentales. Por tanto, el filme de Gallego y Guerra se encuentra más cerca de películas épicas como Lawrence de Arabia que a los mitos de culturas como la wayuu.


La estructura episódica le permite al largometraje abarcar una gran extensión de tiempo en la que múltiples cambios ocurren. De esta manera, Pájaros de verano avanza como un conjunto de viñetas en las que se narran distintos capítulos de las vidas de sus personajes. Hay imágenes memorables en ellas: como la de un desierto en que una plaga ataca un asentamiento como si se tratase de una escena bíblica. O, por ejemplo, la fascinante escena que muestra el modo en que los restos de uno de los miembros de una familia wayuu son tratados al sacarlo de su ataúd. La conexión entre estos episodios no resulta siempre afortunada, sin embargo. Ya a mitad del filme, los personajes van cambiando sin tener un espacio para hacerlo. La conexión entre un canto y otro se va volviendo difusa; y antes que un clímax, la película se va volviendo una suma de capítulos: unos más interesantes que otros. Pájaros de verano ni se constituye en un filme coral como Goodfellas, ni en uno épico al estilo de Lawrence de Arabia. En contraste, la sensación que domina el final es de desconexión en la que no se puede identificar si el conflicto central gira en torno a Zaida como víctima de un sistema cerrado, o a Rapayet por caer en la tentación de un negocio con consecuencias fatales, o a Úrsula que vacila entre satisfacer su ambición y apegarse a la tradición. 


En el segmento final de Pájaros de verano, el filme parece alargarse sin razón. Los distintos hilos se van atando en una coda cuya conclusión no se ve a la vista. Curiosamente, se trata de un rasgo que también comparte con Lawrence de Arabia. La película de Lean concluye de un modo anticlimático, con su protagonista desilusionado después de todas las empresas que emprendió en el desierto. Así es como el mundo termina, con un gemido y no con una explosión, dice el poeta. La muerte ya la vimos al principio de Lawrence de Arabia, la muerte ya no importa. A falta de Lawrence, a Pájaros de verano le hace falta un personaje, o un motivo, que conjugue toda su narración (ya que el largometraje de Gallego y Guerra no es ni moderno, ni posmoderno, es clásico). Bien hemos podido ser espectadores de la desaparición de todo un mundo cultural sin mayor emoción. Y en ello radica la diferencia entre una película y otra. Una historia no resulta importante por el mero hecho de enunciarse como relevante, sino por persuadir a su espectador de su relevancia. Es en ello en que falla Pájaros de verano. El aceptable largometraje nos hace partícipe de un drama crucial en nuestra historia, al tiempo que visibiliza una cultura e intenta amalgamar sus tradiciones con distintos géneros cinematográficos. Infortunadamente esto no termina de traducirse en emoción alguna. El fin de un mundo nos deja indiferentes, una vez más.

          Rostros y lugares (Visages Villages)      Cache   Translate Page      


Dicen que cada rostro tiene escrito su historia. En Rostros y lugares (Visages Villages, en la traducción se pierde la aliteración) los rostros de habitantes de la Francia rural se superponen a los sitios en que ellos trabajan y habitan. Agnès Varda y JR registran encuentros y desencuentros de su deambular por los campos franceses en aras de poner en marcha un proyecto artístico que es tanto intervención artística como escenificación del proceso creativo. El objeto es que la ampliación de las fotografías de rostros sirva como una marca que visibiliza relatos de personas comunes y corrientes. Rostros y lugares propone una lúdica conjunción de esfuerzos para quebrar la monotonía al hacernos mirar un territorio desconocido: el rostro de otro como testimonio de una vida. Por una parte, los realizadores apuntan a que por medio de este proceso se modifique la percepción tanto de transeúntes como espectadores. Con su estrategia, por otra parte, Agnès y JR nos hacen mirar historias menores que pasamos por alto, vidas que se ven opacadas por nuestras costumbres y por  la escala de prioridades que impera en nuestras sociedades. Nada puede compararse con el rostro humano, dijo alguna vez Carl Theodor Dreyer; como si fueran fieles a tal juicio, los realizadores se dan a la tarea de explorar una insólita (y evidente) intersección: la de un rostro y el sitio en que vive. De ahí, y de la lúdica escenificación con la que presentan su proyecto, se desprende una genuina felicidad y una necesaria recuperación. Así pues, el filme se puede describir como un cruce de caminos entre el cine y el arte por medio del cual se revelan facetas y relatos desconocidos de territorios cercanos e inexplorados.


Mientras que casi todas las personas invitadas a hacer parte del proyecto les abren la puerta a los realizadores (al punto de ser casi irritantemente predecible su avance), la película cierra con una puerta cerrada. Rostros y lugares muestra tanto los encuentros felices para JR y Agnès; o mejor, la empresa que surge a partir del encuentro de ambos artistas; como también el desencuentro de Agnès y Jean-Luc Godard. Colaboradores y amigos cercanos en el pasado, el propuesto encuentro termina con una escena amarga ante la negativa de Godard a responder a su llamado. ¿Sabotaje del propósito de Varda? ¿O modo de transmitir un mensaje más profundo y opaco? El filme cierra con la ambigüedad del gesto de quien se niega a hacer parte de la lógica de un juego que nos ha permitido conectar fisionomías y geografías. Y en tanto este segmento suma una evidencia más del inexcusable comportamiento del realizador franco-suizo, añade también una incógnita: por qué uno de los motores de la renovación audiovisual se niega a hacer parte de un proyecto de tan estimulante y juguetón.


La respuesta probablemente no resulta relevante. De hecho, esta conclusión enriquece al documental al hacer irrumpir una lógica más caprichosa y subterránea: la de individuos que dejan esporádicas marcas con mensajes cifrados en relatos documentales y de ficción. El mensaje y la puerta cerrada de Godard sugieren todo un relato no dicho, el mundo privado del autor. Hoy que vuelve a discutirse sobre los alcances morales de la ficción, así como sobre la línea divisoria entre artista y obra, el cierre de Rostros y lugares quizás resulta más diciente que dichos debates. El desenlace puede leerse como prueba de que la película ha sido un constructo que de pronto se quiebra por la aparición de una realidad ajena a la lógica del filme. Acaso el final sea la más reciente refutación del cine de autor: el registro de como lo real interrumpe el designio del creador. O quizás sea simplemente el viejo cascarrabias (Godard) arruinando el trabajo de sus colegas. Sea como sea, el cierre añade una dimensión más a un documental emocionante. Un largometraje que nos abre la entrada a lugares y personas que hemos pasado por alto en nuestro cotidiano ajetreo, uno que concluye con una puerta cerrada y una pareja disímil mirándose junto a un lago iluminado.









          3 anuncios por un crimen (Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri)      Cache   Translate Page      


1er anuncio: Ira. En esta semana, como protesta por la inoperancia de la justicia, dos grupos de distintas personas adaptaron la idea que tiene Mildred (Frances McDormand) en 3 anuncios por un crimen: poner tres vallas en que se señala la lentitud de las autoridades para hacer frente a distintos crímenes. No es un simple caso de la vida que imita al arte. Más bien se trata de una prueba de que el filme capta el espíritu de los tiempos. En el ambiente gravita tanto la furia y el dolor debido a injusticias sufridas, como se escucha un llamado lleno de rabia para remediar tales situaciones. Este es uno de los méritos del largometraje, que atrae precisamente por la convincente interpretación de McDormand, una víctima henchida de indignación. Esto es una explicación, además, para el éxito y la atención que genera una película desigual como esta.



2do anuncio: Caos. A propósito de Room 237, Jonathan Rosenbaum se quejaba de que los críticos no parecían darle tanta importancia a la idea de que una obra artística tuviese una coherencia con determinado planteamiento estético. Todo podría sumarse aleatoriamente, entonces, sin que nada lo cohesionara (ni siquiera el propósito de unirlo todo aleatoriamente). Una coherencia de la quecarece 3 anuncios por un crimen. La película pasa del clamor por justicia de Mildred al drama familiar de Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) y de ahí a la increíble transformación de Dixon (Sam Rockwell), sin hacer énfasis en ninguna de estas historias, como si se tratase de relatos separados que se han cosido con premura. Lo más insólito de la recepción del filme es que incluso se le alabe por su perfecta dramaturgia. En el desenlace, no hay claridad de si los realizadores querían imitar el flujo de la vida diaria (carente de dramaturgia), o arriesgarse a hacer de 3 historia conectadas 3 facetas de un solo drama. El director Martin McDonagh no es Robert Altman para sortear de modo satisfactorio el primer tipo de película, ni es suficientemente hábil como para hacer una variación arriesgada de la dramaturgia clásica. El caos termina por dominar el largometraje, por desgracia. 


3er anuncio: Redención. En primer plano teníamos la rabia de Mildred, de trasfondo nos embarga el anhelo por redimir nuestras culpas. A pesar de presentarse como una audaz forma de poner el dedo en la llaga, la película se decanta por el reconocible relato de una segunda oportunidad. Una que le otorga una salvación problemática a uno de los personajes, valga decir. 3 anuncios por un crimenlidia con conflictos que persisten en la sociedad estadounidense; sin embargo antes que indagar sobre ellos, termina por solucionarlos con un cambio milagroso. Por supuesto, todos merecemos segundas oportunidades, así como estas oportunidades han sido fuente inagotable para que el cine se haya usufructuado de ellas como un repetitivo bálsamo. El filme de McDonagh resulta mucho más conformista de lo que en principio promete. Puesto de este modo, el largometraje oculta todavía más los problemas raciales y sexistas que inicialmente parecía enfrentar, al recurrir a los remedios que hemos visto hasta la saciedad. Más todavía si se tiene en cuenta que si tuviéramos un patrón unificador en el filme, ese no es el relato de Mildred, sino el de Dixon. Dicho esto, también es excesivo atribuirle un discurso reaccionario al largometraje. Los realizadores intentan enfrentar nuestra caótica realidad a través de una narración audaz en la que un drama local refleja las contradicciones y virtudes de un país. Un intento fallido, no obstante. 3 anuncios por un crimen cuenta múltiples relatos, pero no logra hacer de ellos uno solo.

Los 5 mejores coches del Salón de Ginebra 2019

Lista de los 5 mejores coches de producción que han sido presentados en el Salón de Ginebra 2019.

Han sido muchas las novedades y primicias que han sido presentadas en el Salón del Automóvil de Ginebra 2019. Un año más, todas las marcas de coches que han hecho acto de presencia han puesto toda la carne en el asador con el objetivo de centrar la mayor parte de la atención tanto por parte de los medios como del público que ha decidido darse cita en la principal cita automovilística europea.

El Salón de Ginebra 2019 ha acogido el debut de los nuevos modelos que próximamente veremos en los concesionarios europeos. Como es habitual, también ha habido espacio para la presentación de prototipos y concept cars con los que las marcas adelantan futuras novedades o permiten conocer el rumbo que seguirán durante los años venideros. Tanto en materia de movilidad como de diseño.

En este artículo hemos decidido recopilar los 5 mejores coches que han sido presentados en este salón del automóvil. La única premisa marcada a la hora de realizar este listo es que se trate de vehículos de producción y de diferente índole (utilitario, berlina o SUV, por ejemplo).

BMW Serie 7 2019

La berlina de lujo bávara, el BMW Serie 7, se pone al día con una relevante actualización de mitad de ciclo.

BMW Serie 7

Una de las berlinas de lujo por excelencia se pone al día con una relevante actualización de mitad de ciclo. El Salón de Ginebra ha sido el escenario elegido por BMW para presentar en sociedad el nuevo BMW Serie 7. El modelo bávaro debía actualizarse para seguir lidiando con auténticos pesos pesados como son el Mercedes Clase S y el Audi A8. Además del cambio de imagen, los avances en el ámbito tecnológico son notables.

Si echamos un vistazo al interior del nuevo BMW Serie 7 nos encontraremos con un ambiente de lujo y confort. Presenta el sistema BMW Touch Command con sistema operativo 7.0 de BMW. Se compone de dos pantallas táctiles Full HD de 10 pulgadas y un reproductor Blu-ray. También cuenta con un nuevo cuadro de instrumentos digital y un sistema multimedia que da acceso a nuevos servicios digitales. Las versiones híbridas enchufables mejoran su autonomía y, lógicamente, siguen estando disponibles.

Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake 2019

La variante de carrocería más práctica y familiar del nuevo Mercedes CLA debuta en Ginebra.

Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake

La variante de carrocería más práctica y de ámbito “familiar” que podremos encontrar en la gama de la nueva generación del Mercedes CLA ha entrado en escena. El nuevo Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake ya es una realidad y se hace eco de todas las novedades presentadas por la variante coupé que fue presentada a comienzos de este mismo año con motivo del CES 2019 celebrado en Las Vegas (Estados Unidos).

Realmente no hay sorpresas, puesto que a nivel de equipamiento, diseño y oferta mecánica, el nuevo Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake lo comparte todo con el CLA Coupé. Cuenta con numerosos sistemas de asistencia a la conducción y el nuevo sistema de info-entretenimiento MBUX que Mercedes está aplicando a todos sus nuevos modelos. Ha sido presentado con una sola mecánica, el CLA 250 Shooting Brake con motor de gasolina de 225 CV.

Peugeot 208 2019

El utilitario francés se renueva por completo. El nuevo Peugeot 208 entra en escena y estrena versión eléctrica.

El superventas de la firma francesa se pone al día en materia de diseño, de equipamiento tecnológico y, en especial, en lo que a oferta mecánica se refiere. Estrena una imagen que le permite situarse en consonancia con los últimos lanzamientos de Peugeot.

El Peugeot 208 también mejora en dotación tecnológica puesto que estrena un cuadro de instrumentos digital y una nueva pantalla táctil para manejar la última versión del sistema de info-entretenimiento de Peugeot. Además, entre la nueva oferta mecánica encontraremos una versión totalmente eléctrica. El nuevo Peugeot e-208 se posicionará como punta de lanza en la ofensiva eléctrica de la firma del león.

Polestar 2

El nuevo Polestar 2 entra en escena. Polestar presenta su primer coche eléctrico. Un rival del Tesla Model 3.

Polestar 2

El primer coche totalmente eléctrico de Polestar entra en escena. El esperado Polestar 2 ya es una realidad. El esperado rival sueco para el Tesla Model 3 ha generado muchísima expectación debido a su diseño, dotación tecnológica, calidad de los acabados y, sobre todo, por las cifras que ha anunciado la marca sueca. Debemos prestar especial atención a la batería y la autonomía.

En las entrañas del Polestar 2 se encuentra una batería de 78 kWh que le permite homologar una autonomía de 500 kilómetros según el ciclo WLTP. Es propulsado por dos motores eléctricos que arrojan una potencia total de 300 kW (408 CV) y 660 Nm. Gracias a esta mecánica este nuevo vehículo eléctrico puede acelerar de 0 a 100 km/h en menos de 5 segundos.

Skoda Kamiq

La familia SUV de Skoda crece. El nuevo Skoda Kamiq se posicionará como el miembro de acceso. Un B-SUV.

Skoda Kamiq

La familia SUV de Skoda da la bienvenida a su nuevo integrante. La oferta de todocaminos del fabricante checo en Europa aumenta. El nuevo modelo presentado en sociedad es el Skoda Kamiq. Un B-SUV que se posicionará como miembro de acceso a dicha gama y estará un escalón por debajo del actual Skoda Karoq. Es rápidamente reconocible debido a que adopta la nueva filosofía de diseño de la marca.

El nuevo Skoda Kamiq hace uso de la plataforma MQB A0 de Volkswagen. Llegará a los concesionarios para rivalizar entre otros modelos con el SEAT Arona, Kia Stonic y Renault Captur. Solo está disponible con tracción delantera y entre su oferta mecánica habrá una alternativa de movilidad sostenible, un motor adaptado al uso de GNC (Gas Natural Comprimido).

peugeot-e-208-gti-201955416_1.jpg

Recreación del nuevo Peugeot e-208 GTi.

La firma francesa presentó hace unos días en el Salón del Automóvil de Ginebra 2019 la nueva generación del Peugeot 208. Una nueva iteración del popular utilitario que por primera vez contará en su gama con una opción eléctrica, el nuevo Peugeot e-208.

Tras la presentación de las versiones regulares del modelo, tanto en su variante de motor de combustión tradicional como en la nueva variante eléctrica, le tocará el turno a la nueva generación de la versión más explosiva de la gama, el nuevo Peugeot 208 GTi. Esta nueva versión deportiva tendrá de nuevo cabida en el catálogo de la firma francesa, aunque como el resto de futuras novedades firmadas por Peugeot Sport, esta llegará bajo un nuevo formato electrificado.

Hace solo unos días os mostramos precisamente el posible aspecto que podría tener una nueva variante de combustión del Peugeot 208 GTi, la “nueva versión GTI que no llegarás a ver” en la calle precisamente porque la nueva generación de esta versión deportiva contará con una nueva mecánica eléctrica. Y por tanto no estará relacionada con la anterior versión GTi, y como es evidente, tampoco contará con las habituales salidas de escape, que aún podíamos encontrar en esa recreación.

peugeot-e-208-gti-201955416_2.jpg

El nuevo Peugeot e-208 convencional en Ginebra.

En esta ocasión os mostramos un nuevo render que nos adelanta el posible aspecto de esta futura versión electrificada, a la que por el momento hemos denominado e-208 GTi. Esta nueva variante deportiva estará basada en la misma plataforma e-CMP que emplea el Peugeot e-208, aunque contará con motores más potentes y baterías con mayor capacidad para poder aumentar el rendimiento mecánico.

Por el momento no conocemos las posibles especificaciones de esta nueva versión deportiva eléctrica, pero podemos esperar que cuente con un rendimiento como mínimo similar al de su antecesor,

El motivo para escoger una mecánica electrificada es bien simple. Todas las futuras versiones deportivas o potenciadas de la firma francesa contarán con la presencia de motores eléctricos, como demuestra el Concept 508 Peugeot Sport Engineered recién presentado en Ginebra y cuyo paso a producción ya ha sido confirmado. Recurrir a mecánicas convencionales sería muy costoso debido a la entrada en vigor del nuevo ciclo de homologación de consumos y emisiones WLTP, y que precisamente supuso el final para la anterior generación del Peugeot 208 GTi.

Cecotec Mambo Silver, análisis: un robot de cocina multifunción pequeño (en precio), pero matón#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Picar, montar claras y nata, remover, amasar,...por mucho que me guste cocinar hay tareas que me resultan tediosas y para las que se agradece tener ayuda. En mi cocina siempre ha habido todo tipo de artilugios y pequeños electrodomésticos (varillas eléctricas, batidora de mano, picadora, exprimidor, molinillo, rallador, entre muchos más). Todos y cada uno de ellos me han hecho el cocinado más sencillo y quien sea tan cocinillas como yo seguro que comprende su valor.

Sin embargo mis fieles compañeros de batalla han quedado relegados a un segundo plano desde que el robot de cocina multifunción Mambo Silver de Cecotec se instaló en mi cocina hace unas semanas. Llegó para ser testado y, afincada en mis viejos hábitos, me costó unos días ponerme con ello, pero cogí carrerilla y no he parado hasta ahora. Este robot ha sido un gran pinche de cocina. ¡Qué dura va a ser la despedida!

Ni una, ni dos, ni tres: 23 son las funciones del robot multifunción Cecotec Mambo Silver

El robot multifunción Cecotec Mambo Silver es pequeño (en precio), pero matón: trocea, pica, tritura, muele, pulveriza, ralla, bate, monta, emulsiona, mezcla, cocina, remueve, cocina al vapor, escalfa, confita, amasa, hierve, mantiene caliente, fermenta, slowmambo, cocina con precisión grado a grado, cocina al baño maría y dispone de función turbo.

Es un robot fácil de usar, con una pantalla digital y un panel de control táctil atractivos e intuitivos. La temperatura se puede ajustar grado a grado, desde 37 ºC hasta 120 ºC y cuenta con un sistema inteligente de potencia calorífica que la controla para evitar sobrecalentamientos e impedir que los alimentos se peguen a la base del vaso o se quemen.

Sus 10 velocidades permiten afinar bastante el ritmo del cocinado, así que es difícil quedarse corto o no llegar. Cuenta con un programador de tiempo, desde un segundo hasta 12 horas. Supone una comodidad y es especialmente adecuado para elaboraciones a baja temperatura que requieren mucho tiempo de cocinado, como los confitados. Si lo hemos ajustado bien, podemos despreocuparnos del cocinado y dedicarnos a otras cosas sabiendo que la comida estará lista y en su punto. El robot se apagará por si solo cuando el temporizador llegue a su fin.

Incorpora una vaporera de dos niveles que permite hacer hasta tres elaboraciones al mismo tiempo: una en la jarra (que es la que genera el vapor) y dos en la vaporera. Por ejemplo, una salsa de tomate en la jarra, unas patatas en el primer nivel de la vaporera y unas albóndigas en el segundo. De la vaporera me gusta especialmente la forma ligeramente rectangular de sus bandejas. Al contrario que otros robots con accesorios similares en los que solo se pueden usar moldes circulares, la vaporera de Cecotec Mambo permiten colocar sobre ellas moldes rectangulares o cuadrados y alimentos alargados como un pescado entero o una pieza de carne.

Mambo Silver Cecotec 2 Vaporera de dos niveles

El robot incluye los siguientes accesorios: vaporera, mariposa, cuchara MamboMix y espátula

El accesorio mariposa es el sustituto de las varillas de toda la vida y realiza la función de batir huevos, montar claras y otras elaboraciones en las que hay que “meter aire”. Se coloca directamente sobre las cuchillas y va como un tiro. Montar 500 ml de nata líquida o 10 claras de huevo en cero coma y sin hacer esfuerzo alguno es un lujo. Las pequeñas lenguetas de silicona de la base permiten recoger hasta el último trozo o gota de la base de la jarra.

Una de las cosas que más me ha gustado es la cuchara amasadora MamboMix. Sirve para remover y amasar sin cortar ni dañar los alimentos porque se coloca en la base de la jarra en sustitución de las cuchillas. Es perfecta para la elaboración de recetas que necesitan de mucho remover (arroz con leche, risotto, masa para croquetas, masa para pan y pizza, etc) porque nos ahorra estar al pie del cañón cuchara en mano. Podemos dedicar nuestro tiempo a otras cosas sabiendo que del vaso del robot va a salir un plato en perfecto estado.

La espátula es muy modesta y bastante mejorable. Resulta demasiado rígida y, aunque está diseñada para adecuarse al tamaño de la jarra, un poco más de volumen y flexibilidad no le vendrían mal. En cualquier caso, es un utensilio asequible y fácil de encontrar, así que no es un drama.

Mambo Black Cecotec 3 Accesorios: cuchara MamboMix, espátula y mariposa

No incluye ni báscula ni cestillo. Mientras que lo primero no resulta esencial, pues cualquier báscula sirve y es un aparato fácil de encontrar y a bajo coste, lo segundo es otro cantar. Sobre todo porque en el libro de recetas que incluye el robot se hace referencia al cestillo en alguna de ellas y cuando uno va a ponerse a cocinarlas se encuentra con que no las puede llevar a cabo. Este es el caso concreto del arroz blanco y los huevos duros.

Primeras (y segundas) impresiones

La primera impresión está directamente relacionada con su aspecto. El diseño de Cecotec Mambo Silver resulta ligeramente demodé. Tanto el cuerpo del robot como la bandeja de cocción al vapor recuerdan al Thermomix 21, el modelo de hace 15 años y al que han seguido dos diseños posteriores (TMX 31y TMX 5). El toque moderno y actual de la pantalla digital y el panel de control táctil no compensan esa primera impresión.

Dicho esto y después de dar buen uso al robot, hay mucho más que comentar. Para empezar, las ventosas que lleva colocadas en la base y que ayudan a que no se mueva durante su funcionamiento. Hay modelos en el mercado que son inestables y que, con ciertas funciones (como el amasado para panes), no soporta bien las sacudidas y tienden a desplazarse por la encimera de la cocina. A Cecotec Mambo no le ocurre esto, algo muy de agradecer porque te evita tener que estar echando un ojo al robot por miedo a que acabe en el suelo.

Mambo Black Cecotec 5 Crema de verduras: una de las muchas elaboraciones que se pueden preparar con el robot multifunción Mambo Silver

Y no es porque el motor tenga poca potencia, para nada. La potencia del motor es de 1700W, superior a la del TM5, el modelo más actual de Thermomix (las comparaciones son odiosas, pero ya que hemos empezado...), que se queda en 1500W. De hecho Cecotec Mambo Silver cuenta con dos motores, el segundo de los cuales entra en funcionamiento a partir de la sexta velocidad como apoyo extra al primero. Este doble sistema de engranajes transmite a las cuchillas toda la fuerza de motor, tanto en bajas como en altas revoluciones. En recetas que requieren de un triturado final a alta velocidad, como cremas y salsas, el rendimiento es sobresaliente. Se consiguen unas texturas aterciopeladas que nada tienen que envidiar a las de ningún restaurante con estrella Michelin.

Algo que, a priori llama la atención es que la capacidad de la jarra, según el propio fabricante, es de 3,3 litros, algo que no es del todo cierto. La jarra admite hasta esta cantidad de líquido, cierto, sin embargo las marcas de su interior indican el tope hasta el que se debe llenar para un cocinado seguro. Esto reduce su capacidad real de uso a 2,3 litros. ¿Buena capacidad igualmente? Sí, pero no la indicada en las especificaciones técnicas. Con todo y con esto, 2,3 litros son suficientes para alimentar a entre cuatro y seis bocas con generosidad.

Lo bueno

En Cecotec Mambo se puede cocinar con las cuchillas o la cuchara MamboMix paradas. Esto es genial para elaboraciones que necesitan cocciones sin remover, como pastas, legumbres, estofados, etc. En su jarra se pueden preparar guisos tradicionales de igual manera que si usáramos una cacerola y el fuego o una placa de inducción o vitrocerámica.

La función slowmambo consigue sabores intensos y resultados muy parecidos a los de la cocina tradicional de las abuelas

Me gusta especialmente la función “slowmambo” con la que cocinar a baja temperatura con el accesorio cuchara MamboMix. Con ella he preparado uno de los risottos más ricos y unas lentejas que han hecho historia en casa. Todo ello sin despeinarme.

Mambo Black Cecotec 1 Cuchilla y cuchara MamboMix

Destacable es el hecho de poder triturar pequeñas cantidades a velocidades relativamente altas y que no se cree una burbuja de vacío alrededor de las cuchillas que provoque tener que parar el robot, bajar los alimentos de las paredes de la jarra y programar de nuevo. Me ha parecido un sueño preparar hummus del tirón y conseguir una textura suave y cremosa. Esto no lo he conseguido con otros robots que hay en el mercado.

Desmontar las cuchillas para su limpieza o para cambiarlas por la cuchara MamboMix es sencillísimo. El mecanismo va como la seda. Lo mismo ocurre con la tapadera, que cuenta con un sistema giratorio de las gomas del cierre que facilita mucho su manejo.

Por último, una de las características más importantes de este robot es su sistema de seguridad avanzado. La tapa tiene un sensor de cierre que bloquea el funcionamiento si no está correctamente cerrada. Para evitar salpicaduras y quemaduras, si la temperatura de los alimentos cocinados es superior a los 60ºC, la velocidad máxima de triturado de las cuchillas es el 4. Mambo cuenta también un conjunto de termofusibles para evitar que se colapse el motor o la resistencia calorífica.

Lo no tan bueno

La jarra requiere un cuidado especial pues la base, en la que está acoplada la conexión al cuerpo del robot, no es desmontable y el contacto con el agua la puede estropear

Quizás estoy siendo un poco quisquillosa porque, después de ahorrarme tiempo y esfuerzo de cocinado, tener que lavar la mayoría de las piezas del robot a mano supone una minudencia. Pero cuando no se es amigo del fregadero...ya se sabe. Con excepción de la vaporera, no es aconsejable meter en el lavavajillas ni las cuchillas, ni la cuchara MamboMix, ni la jarra de acero inoxidable.

Mambo Black Cecotec 4 La base de la jarra, a la que va acoplada la conexión al cuerpo del robot, no es desmontable

Un pequeño detalle es el del cable que queda suelto y sin recoger. Hay otros robots en el mercado que llevan un sistema de recogida de cable (no puedo evitar hacer nuevamente la comparación con Thermomix) que resulta muy cómodo y deja el robot bien recogido y protegido. Algo que, para frikis del orden como una servidora, es importante.

Ya he mencionado que Cecotec Mambo viene con un libro de recetas que, aunque perfecto para iniciarse y soltarse con el robot en cuestión, es incómodo de usar. Las recetas aparecen ordenadas por función del robot, lo que dificulta localizarlas. Con lo sencillo que es meter un índice alfabético. Algunas recetas quedan incompletas, terminando cuando el robot ya no se necesita más en su elaboración. Solo alguien con experiencia sabría cómo terminarlas. En resumen, es un libro no apto para principiantes e inexpertos.

Multifunción Cecotec Mambo Silver, la opinión de Xataka

¿Me ha gustado Cecotec Mambo? Sí. ¿Lo recomendaría? Pues depende. Las necesidades personales de cada uno son distintas y lo que para mi ha funcionado muy bien (ya he comentado en la introducción que la despedida me va a resultar dura) puede no servir de nada a muchos de vosotros.

Del robot de cocina multifunción Cecotec Mambo Silver me quedo con lo bueno arriba descrito y con el precio. Los 249 euros que cuesta la criatura en cuestión van muy lejos y se amortizan en un par de meses si sois de cocinar a menudo y os gusta probar elaboraciones que vayan más allá de la tortilla francesa y la ensalada. Entonces encontraréis en él un gran pinche de cocina.

They were supposed to be together forever. That was the plan, but through a cruel twist of fate the night before their three-year anniversary, Tex Davis lost the one man he would ever love, Memphis King. A year has passed and he still hasn’t been able to move on. Everyone tells him it’s time, but what do they know? Memphis was his partner in love and life. Losing him, broke Tex.

Tex has been given an opportunity to move from New York to Seattle. His friends and family are encouraging him to take it, but he has already decided to decline the offer because that would mean leaving Memphis behind. 

Then something happened. 

Whether it be fate or something else, Memphis came back to him. Tex’s first love is supposed to help him move on, but not even Memphis can bring himself to force Tex to let him go. 

Is it so wrong to want to spend forever with the person you loved most? Both hearts are begging to be unbroken.



Tagline:
Two broken hearts, one wandering soul.

Maria Vickers currently lives in St. Louis, MO with her pug, Spencer Tracy. She has always had a passion for writing and after she became disabled in 2010, she decided to use writing as her escape. She believes that life is about what you make of it. You have to live it to the fullest no matter the circumstances.

From a young age, she has always loved books and even dreamed of being an author when she was younger. Growing up in the Navy, she used to weave tales for her siblings and her friends about anything and everything. And when she wasn't creating her own stories, she had a book in her hand. They transported her to another world. She hopes that with her books, her readers have the same experience and that they can relate to her characters.

Getting sick changed her life forever, but it also opened doors for her that she thought would always be out of reach.

          La place de la NORMANDIE en France: deux statistiques édifiantes...      Cache   Translate Page      

Disons-le d'emblée si la vraie Normandie n'avait pas été réunifiée, ce serait... pire!

Dans nos lectures récentes, nous avons repéré les deux statistiques suivantes. A savoir:

  • un tableau complet proposé par l'INSEE (chiffres 2018 pour la population et 2015 pour le PIB), tableau publié dans un atlas fort intéressant consacré aux politiques culturelles sur le territoire national qui vient de paraître.
  • un classement publié dans l'édition du 12 mars 2019 du Figaro au sujet des villes de France qui se montrent les plus accueillantes pour passer sa retraite en terme de cadre de vie et de coût de la vie.

Premier tableau: la Normandie est dans... la moyenne!

On pensera à un célèbre slogan publicitaire des années 1970: "c'est bon, c'est normal, c'est Normand!" Plus significatif: la Normandie réunifié fait, désormais, jeu égal avec la Bretagne!

test0039

On notera, néanmoins, qu'à population et PIB global sensiblement à égalité, la Bretagne présente un PIB par habitant supérieur à la Normandie: la puissance de la métropolisation rennaise et une population normande plus "populaire" peuvent expliquer cette différence...

En terme de part de population et du territoire, la Normandie c'est 5% de la France (outremer compris) donc quasiment la même valeur que la Bretagne (non réunifiée) qui fait aussi 5% de la population mais 4% du territoire national. La Normandie se retrouve, donc, ex aequo avec la Bretagne, avec... 4% du PIB national (l'île de France, première région urbaine d'Europe par la population et par le PIB en fait 30% à elle seule!): les Pays-de-la-Loire avec une Loire atlantique bretonne en font 5%.

Second tableau: il sera moins flatteur! Puisqu'il s'agit du classement des 50 premières villes françaises qui seraient les plus agréables pour partir en retraite...

On s'en doutera: aucune ville normande dans les dix premières places d'un classement qui commence avec  Arcachon et qui se finit avec Marseille!

Non sans préciser que l'avant-dernière place est pour Le Havre! Les retraités sont donc fâchés avec les grands ports mais pas avec le littoral, bien au contraire, dès lors que c'est plutôt dans le Sud et bien ensoleillé, bien évidemment!

La Normandie est donc à son désavantage. Du moins, elle n'a pas encore eu le temps de faire d'un inconvénient un avantage: l'excès de soleil (canicule) combiné aux prix du mètre carré tout aussi excessifs sur la côte d'Azur commence à faire fuir les retraités plus au Nord, ou plus à l'Ouest... jusqu'en Bretagne. C'est ainsi que Vannes se trouve à la 5ème place et Saint-Malo à la 10ème. 

Du côté du département de la Manche, on a senti depuis longtemps le filon consistant à attirer les retraités venus de la région parisienne avec un littoral et une campagne encore relativement préservés. Mais il faut régulièrement expliquer au grand public ou dans les grands médias que le Mont Saint Michel n'est pas en Bretagne mais en Normandie!

Caen est, donc, la première ville normande à paraître dans ce palmarès et c'est, hélas, la seule (avec Le Havre à l'avant-dernière place).

Rouen n'apparaît pas dans ce classement puisque dans l'esprit des retraités, la métropole normande, trop proche de la région parisienne, serait à fuir comme la région parisienne: il y a donc un énorme travail à faire pour que Rouen change son image, voire, qu'elle s'en fabrique enfin une! Ce n'est  pas la première fois qu'on le dit ici mais cette statistique intéressante et originale confirme l'urgence!

          L'abbaye de LONGUES SUR MER va recevoir la manne de Stéphane BERN      Cache   Translate Page      

C'est aux dernières nouvelles le seul monument historique normand sélectionné pour recevoir la précieuse manne du nouveau tirage du très apprécié loto du Patrimoine lancé par Stéphane BERN...

L'ancienne abbaye bénédictine de Longues située dans le Bessin (Calvados) non loin des plages du Débarquement va recevoir quelques secours financiers bienvenus car ce qui reste de l'ancienne abbatiale menace de s'effondrer:

image_content_24993843_20190311182553

Le chœur de l’église de l’abbaye Sainte-Marie au centre du projet de la Mission Stéphane Bern

Patrimoine. Une abbaye de 850 ans dans le Calvados a été sélectionnée par la Mission pour la sauvegarde du patrimoine en péril. Le chœur de son église devrait être rénové d’ici 2021.

Depuis le XIIe siècle et pendant 600 ans, des moines ont arpenté ses couloirs de pierre de Caen. Aujourd’hui, l’abbaye Sainte-Marie à Longues-sur-Mer, dans le Calvados, est sélectionnée par la Mission pour la sauvegarde du patrimoine en péril, animée par Stéphane Bern. Une nouvelle accueillie avec « beaucoup de joie » par la copropriétaire de l’ancienne abbaye bénédictine, Isabelle d’Anglejan. « Ça nous a donné un élan et beaucoup de courage pour continuer ce projet assez lourd », confie-t-elle.

Classé monument historique, le site abrite un réfectoire, une maison abbatiale, plusieurs jardins et une église. Détruite pendant la Révolution française avant d’être confiée à des fermiers par l’évêque de Bayeux, afin d’éviter les pillages - la chapelle avait alors servi de boulangerie - l’abbaye a ensuite été rachetée par un Américain, en 1932. Suite au décès de son épouse, la demeure est alors revendue à la famille d’Anglejan, en 1964. Cette dernière continue, depuis, à rénover les lieux.

Le chœur de l’église est à présent au centre de l’attention : menacé d’écroulement, il nécessite des fonds que la famille d’Anglejan n’a jamais pu rassembler. Après la tentative d’un financement participatif, c’est finalement la Drac (Direction régionale des affaires culturelles), qui les contacte il y a quelques semaines, pour annoncer qu’une sélection à la Mission de Stéphane Bern est possible. « Un projet inespéré, c’est complètement dingue », n’en revient toujours pas la copropriétaire. L’abbaye a été sélectionnée parmi dix-huit autres projets en France métropolitaine et Outre-mer.

Priorité à la rénovation de l’église

La rénovation devrait se dérouler en deux phases. Une première étape sera consacrée à la façade occidentale et à la restitution de la toiture sur l’ancien chœur de l’église. La deuxième partie concernera, entre autres, l’intérieur de l’Église, notamment les vitraux, mais aussi le réfectoire.

Chaque année l’abbaye accueille 1 500 visiteurs en moyenne et 3 000 l’année dernière, alors qu’elle fêtait ses 850 ans. La famille d’Anglejan prévoit la même affluence cette année à l’occasion des 75 ans de la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Au programme : expositions, concerts et l’intervention d’historiens et artistes pour contribuer au « rayonnement » du secteur, rôle notamment exigé par la Mission Stéphane Bern.

À noter : l’entrée est désormais gratuite pour les gens du village – cinq euros pour les autres. Isabelle d’Anglejan ne connaît pas encore le montant accordé par le ministère, cependant une collecte a déjà été lancée par la famille l’année dernière (à retrouver sur le site de la Mission), dont la moitié a déjà été récolté.

          بالاتر از اپل و سامسونگ، سونی ششمین کمپانی قابل اعتماد جهان در سال 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

امروزه واژه "برند" واژه ای پرتکرار در هر کسب و کاری است. از کسب و کارهای کوچک تا شرکت های چند ملیتی هر کدام به عنوان یک برند سعی در اعتماد سازی بین مشتریان دارند. اما این اعتماد به آسانی برای هر برندی بدست نخواهد آمد. اینکه امروزه بسیاری از کمپانی ها از نظر مالی جایگاه قابل توجهی دارند، به این معنا نیست که برندهای قابل اعتمادی هستند. شاید بسیاری از مشتریان بنابر دلایلی خاص به سراغ یک برند می آیند، اما به آن اعتماد کامل ندارند. اینجاست که ارزش و جایگاه برندهایی که در نزد مشتریان احترام دارند مشخص میشود. نشریه Forbes که در اعتبار آن هیچ تردیدی وجود ندارد، مثل سال های گذشته به سراغ مورد اعتمادترین و مورد احترام ترین برندهای جهان رفته است. این آمار توسط هزاران مشتری از سرتاسر دنیا بدست آمده که نشان میدهد کدام برندها در جلب اعتماد مشتریان خود سرآمد هستند. در این آمار برند رولکس مورد اعتمادترین برند جهان در سال 2019 شناخته شده است. سونی در این لیست، مورد اعتمادترین برند ژاپنی است که در رده ششم مورد اعتمادترین برندهای جهان نیز قرار گرفته است. سونی در سال گذشته نیز در رده ششم مورد اعتمادترین برندهای جهان قرار داشت. نکته جالب در خصوص این آمار، قرارگیری اپل و سامسونگ در رتبه های بسیار نازل است. طبق همین آمار، سامسونگ پنجاه و دومین و اپل پنجاه هفتمین برند مورد اعتماد جهان در سال 2019 محسوب میشود. به نظر شما چه عواملی باعث شده تا سونی تا این اندازه اعتماد مشتریان خود را جلب کند؟

          Commentaires sur Le RDV Tech 287 – La 5G dans l’espace par Patrick      Cache   Translate Page      
@Jérôme Le problème n'est pas dans l'énonciation du principe ; tout le monde serait d'accord pour dire "ces sociétés doivent être morales". Mais quand on réfléchi à l'application concrète ça se complique considérablement... De quelle morale parle t'on ? De celle de cette société ? Ils sont américains, donc on parle de morale américaine ? Qu'on traite de puritains quand ils cachent un bout de sein ? De la notre, en France ? Dont l'athéisme "extrême" horrifie les américains ? (cet athéisme que nous considérons comme normal et que nous chérissons les dérange beaucoup et est souvent considéré comme une attaque contre les religions ; on ne s'en rend pas compte de l'intérieur du pays, mais nous sommes une exception, et pas qu'envers les US, par cet aspect nous sommes uniques dans le monde, et tout le monde nous regarde un peu bizarrement). Ce ne sont que deux exemples minimes, sur deux pays (US et France) finalement assez proches... Donc quelle morale choisir ? C'est mission impossible, surtout quand on reproche déjà tous les jours aux GAFAM d'avoir trop de pouvoir. D'où la conclusion que la seule solution viable est de se fier, tant bien que mal, aux lois locales, représentant (en théorie) la volonté du peuple... Et décider qu'ils devraient simplement se retirer du pays s'ils ne sont pas d'accord, non seulement ça veut dire qu'ils prennent encore cette décision dans leurs mains et en accord avec "leur" morale (américaine ?), mais en plus s'il est facile de tomber d'accord dans le cas de la Chine ou de l'Arabie Saoudite, il y a de nombreux autres cas où la moitié du monde serait pour et l'autre moitié crierait à l'imposition de leur morale et à une nouvelle forme d'impérialisme, justement. Donc à mon sens il vaut peut-être mieux laisser cette décision aux états, encore une fois, qui décident si tel ou tel pays a des restrictions économiques. C'est exactement pour ça que ces mécanismes ont été créé. Et oui, c'est compliqué, et on ne fait pas toujours ce qu'on veut, et l'ONU est lent et parfois frustrant etc, mais on n'a pas trouvé de meilleur moyen de gérer nos désaccord à l'échelle du monde, qui est celle dont on parle... Et là encore, si on pense que la solution est simplement de dire "bah ils ont qu'a déterminer une charte morale et s'y tenir", je crois qu'on se fourre le doigt dans l'oeil jusqu'à la boite de pandore... :)

          1983 Book by Jewish Historians Celebrates Jewish Role in Mass Murder of Russians Under Bolshevism      Cache   Translate Page      

Alain Brossat and Sylvie Klingberg’s Revolutionary Yiddishland: A History of Jewish Radicalism was first published in France in 1983. A revised edition appeared in 2009 and an English translation in 2016. Intended for a mainly Jewish readership, the book is essentially an apologia for Jewish communist militants in Eastern Europe in the early to mid-twentieth century.

Brossat, a Jewish lecturer in philosophy at the University of Paris, and Klingberg, an Israeli sociologist, interviewed dozens of former revolutionaries living in Israel in the early 1980s. In their testimony they recalled “the great scenes” of their lives such as “the Russian Civil War, the building of the USSR, resistance in the camps, the war in Spain, the armed struggle against Nazism, and the formation of socialist states in Eastern Europe.”[A1]


          Russia HITS BACK at 'paranoid' claims Moscow trying to interfere in European elections      Cache   Translate Page      

FURIOUS Kremlin officials described accusations of Russian meddling in Europe’s upcoming parliamentary elections absurd on Wednesday as they demanded the bloc’s leaders to provide detailed evidence to back up the claims.

Moscow is believed to have meddled in France’s presidential election in 2017 and faced accusations of doing the same in the 2016 Brexit referendum. Paris openly accused two state-owned outlets of behaving like “organs of propaganda and influence”. Responding to accusations of Russian interference in the upcoming EU elections in May, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said: “The elections have not yet taken place and we are already suspected of meddling.”

He told a press conference in Luxembourg: “What about the presumption of innocence? If after the elections European leaders can provide evidence that Russia interfered in the vote, then we’ll look into it.

“But in their eyes we’re already guilty.”

Mr Medvedev slammed the claims as “aberrant paranoia”.

          Dale Center Research Award Program Recognizes Scholarly and Professional Activity of Students, Faculty, Staff       Cache   Translate Page      

Three members of The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) academic community are recipients of the inaugural Dale Center for the Study of War and Society Research Awards, which are designed to support faculty, staff, and students in the study of historical and contemporary wars across disciplinary and institutional boundaries.

Dale Center Research Awards may be used for expenses related to scholarly research or creative activity, including travel; travel expenses to a conference, performance, or other event where original scholarship or creative activity is being presented; and relevant professional development activities.

After a committee review of applications, grants of up to $1,000 were awarded during the 2018-2019 academic year. Students (graduate or undergraduate) receive priority for at least one of the awards; faculty and graduate students with an existing Dale Center affiliation are not eligible.

Award recipients for the current academic year include:

*Keltoum Rowland, instructor of French, School of Social Science and Global Studies. Rowland’s award funded a trip to France for the ceremony honoring the contributions of Hattiesburg-born WWII airman, Sam B. Dale (no relation to Dale Center’s namesake). The French village of Le Mesnil-Fuguet honored Dale, who was shot down near the village in 1944, as part of its ceremonies on Veteran’s Day 2018. Rowland accompanied two of Dale’s nieces to the event in order to serve as interpreter and guide.

*Dr. Nicolle Jordan, associate professor of English, School of Humanities. Dr. Jordan will use her award to fund a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland for the Congress of the International Society for 18th-Century Studies (ISECS) in July. At the conference, Dr. Jordan will present a paper entitled “Maria Graham’s Chilean Landscape of Independence,” which explores literary texts associated with the Chilean War of Independence.

*Lauren Lassabe, Ph.D. candidate, School of Education. Lassabe’s award will fund a research trip to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, California, where she will conduct archival research for her dissertation project on anticommunist student activism during the Cold War.

“The Dale Center is pleased to support the wide variety of scholarly research, creative work, and professional activity connected with the study of war and society across the university,” said USM Associate Professor of History Dr. Allison Abra, a Dale Center Fellow and coordinator of the awards program. “One of the best parts about creating the awards has been learning about the fascinating work being pursued by our colleagues and students in other disciplines, and being able to foster connections and potentially even future collaborations with them.”

Based within the USM School of Humanities’ History program, the Dale Center serves as a local, national, and international resource for the study of the history of warfare and its influence on both soldiers and civilians. For more information about this awards program, contact Dr. Abra at allison.abra@usm.edu. For more information about the Dale Center, visit https://www.usm.edu/war-society.

Llega la app que recomienda restaurantes a los seguidores de Trump donde puedan comer

La líneas políticas del gobierno de Donald Trump no destacan precisamente por su carácter abierto y liberal, pero sus seguidores dicen sentirse cada vez más acosados e incluso atacados en público. Esto ha motivado a unos desarrolladores a crear una app para que los conservadores puedan encontrar dónde comer "con total seguridad", sin miedo a supuestas represalias.

La aplicación, lanzada este mes, se define como una red social al estilo de Yelp o Tripadvisor en la que los seguidores de Trump pueden evaluar restaurantes y otros locales para encontrar aquellos que no discriminan a los conservadores. Su creador, Scott Wallace, asegura que su objetivo es separar la política de los negocios, a pesar de que el sistema también avisa de los restaurantes en los que no se permite acceder con armas.

Maga

La aplicación '63red Safe' pretende crear una suerte de guía de confianza para que ningún conservador, republicano o pro-Trump pueda temer discriminaciones o incluso que se le expulse del local en cuestión. Es un tema polémico cada vez más de actualidad, ya que en los últimos meses se han dado casos de miembros del equipo del presidente siendo acosados al ser vistos en público.

Los seguidores más fieles de Trump denuncian ser objeto de discriminación cuando exhiben símbolos conservadores, sobre todo mediante el famoso lema 'Make America Great Again' o, MAGA. Sean verídicos o no, se habla ya de "MAGAphobia" y el propio Wallace prevé un aumento de los ataques de radicales liberales o, como él mismo los llama, "escuadrones de matones socialistas".

Trump

Los usuarios que descarguen la aplicación podrán calificar cada local como "seguro" o "inseguro" en base a cuatro preguntas: ¿Sirve a personas de cualquier creencia política?"; "¿Protegerá a sus clientes si son atacados por razones políticas?"; "¿Se pueden llevar armas de uso legítimo?"; y "¿Evita la política en sus promociones y redes sociales?".

Por mucho que su creador insista en sus buenas intenciones, alejadas de querer encontrar restaurantes pro-Trump, la app ya está siendo muy cuestionada por lo discriminatoria que es en sí misma. Y es una presa fácil de manipular por los extremistas, algo que parece estar ya ocurriendo con calificaciones de locales como inseguros sin aparente fundamento.

Augurando más ataques extremistas anti-Trump en los próximos meses, esta aplicación quiere ser una guía "amistosa" y "no política" de restaurantes donde sentirse seguros sin esconder la orientación política. Con vistas a las elecciones del próximo año 2020, resume su función comparándola con un extintor de incendios; no sabes cuándo lo vas a necesitar, pero realmente querrás tenerlo cuando lo necesites. O quizá ha creado una supuesta necesidad donde no la había antes.

          Wave of countries ban Boeing 737 MAX jets after Ethiopia crash      Cache   Translate Page      

Wave of countries ban Boeing 737 MAX jets after Ethiopia crashBritain, France and Germany joined a growing list of countries to ban Boeing 737 MAX planes from their airspace on Tuesday as airlines around the world grounded the jets following a second deadly accident in just five months. On Sunday a new Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 went down minutes into a flight to Nairobi, killing all 157 people on board, from 35 countries. The widening airspace closures puts pressure on Boeing, the world's biggest planemaker, to prove 737 MAX planes are safe as increasing numbers of fleets have been grounded.

          Le coupable de l'incendie de la librairie à Aubusson a été condamné      Cache   Translate Page      
En décembre dernier, un incendie criminel avait ravagé la librairie Au Petit Bonheur située à Aubusson (Creuse), un jeune sans domicile fixe avait été arrêté et maintenu en détention. Après 3 mois d'attente, le jugement vient de tomber : le jeune homme de 22 ans a été condamné à 2 ans de prison ferme.

Tout a commencé dans la nuit du vendredi 7 au samedi 8 décembre, lorsqu'un incendie s'est déclenché dans le centre-ville d’Aubusson. Les flammes ont ravagé la librairie Au Petit Bonheur et le cabinet d'un podologue situé juste au-dessus. Les deux appartements à l’étage supérieur ont également été dégradés.

Le principal suspect, un sans domicile de 22 ans, avait rapidement été interpellé et placé en détention provisoire. Très alcoolisé ce soir-là et sous l’emprise de drogue, un briquet avait aussi été retrouvé sur le jeune homme.  « Il ne peut pas nier sa participation », mais ne se souvient de rien, avait alors affirmé le procureur de la République Bruno Sauvage.

Alors qu'il devait être jugé le lundi 10 décembre en comparution immédiate au tribunal de Guéret pour « destruction d'un bien par un moyen dangereux en état de récidive légale », ce dernier a demandé un report pour préparer sa défense. C'est donc le lundi 11 mars que le jugement a enfin eu lieu. 
 
 

Le mystère du motif


Et si le jeune homme a été condamné à 2 ans de prison ferme, le procès n'a pas élucidé le motif du délit.  « Je ne me souviens pas des faits. Je sais que c’est moi, car je me souviens être sorti du truc de livres », avait-il affirmé en visioconférence depuis la bibliothèque de la maison d’arrêt début décembre. Le prévenu avait déjà été condamné 6 fois auparavant. 
L’Odyssée des livres sauvés :
sur les pas des livres annihilés et brulés

Karine Férat, la libraire, ainsi que le podologue n'étaient pas présents à l'audience. Leurs avocats ont expliqué le choc qu'ils ont subi, ainsi que les pertes auxquels ils ont dû faire face. Le jeune homme de 22 ans devra aussi rembourser les victimes. Le chiffre est tombé pour le préjudice de la librairie et correspond au total à près de 21 000 euros. Celui du podologue devra être fixé lors d'une autre audience en septembre prochain. 
 

Au Petit Bonheur se relève


Pour cette librairie qui avait tout perdu, des livres et des dons ont été récoltés dans la commune d'Aubusson. Un bel exemple de solidarité qui a ainsi permis à Karine Férat de rouvrir un nouveau magasin. C'est avec l'aide la mairie que la libraire a pu trouver un nouveau local non loin de son ancienne boutique. 

La nouvelle librairie a rouvert ses portes à la mi-janvier, et porte de nouveau comme nom « Au petit bonheur ».

          France : le top 10 des livres les plus vendus en 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
TOP 10 — Ce mardi 12 mars, l'institut d'études de marché GfK a révélé la liste des 10 titres les mieux vendus en 2018 sur le marché français. Une occasion également de refaire un petit récapitulatif de cette année riche en rebondissements dans plusieurs segments de l'édition.

(photo d'illustration : Olybrius - CC BY-SA 3.0)

Voici la liste des 10 titres les plus vendus de l'année 2018 : 


 
1) Guillaume Musso, Un appartement à Paris (Pocket) : 590.000 exemplaires vendues
2) Raphaëlle giordano, Ta deuxième vie commence quand tu comprends que tu n'en as qu'une (Pocket) : 541.000 exemplaires vendus
3) Guillaume Musso, La Jeune fille et la Nuit (Calmann-Lévy) : 501.000 exemplaires vendus
4) Joël Dicker, La Disparition de Stephanie Mailer (Editions de Fallois) : 438.000 exemplaires vendus
5) Laëtitia Colombiani, La Tresse (Livre de Poche) : 413.000 exemplaires vendus
6) Lisa Gardner, Famille Parfaite (Livre de Poche) : 347.000 exemplaires vendus
7) Marc Lévy, La dernière des Stanfield (Pocket) : 328.000 exemplaires vendus
8) Achdé et Jul, Les Aventures de Lucky Luke 8 - Un Cow-Boy à Paris (Lucky Comics) : 319.000 exemplaires vendus
9) Elena Ferrante, Celle qui fuit et celle qui reste - L'amie Prodigieuse III (Folio poche) : 304.000 exemplaires vendus
10) Pierre Lemaître, Couleurs de l'incendie (Albin Michel) : 302.000 exemplaires vendus

Avec ses 11,9 millions d’exemplaires écoulés, le format poche s'étend sur 5 places du top, dont 2 au sommet du podium avec Un appartement à Paris et Ta deuxième vie commence quand tu comprends que tu n'en as qu'une (environ 1,31 million d'exemplaires écoulés à eux deux). 

Malgré une belle percée de la bande-dessinée chez les librairies indépendantes (10,6 % du chiffre d'affaires du marché éditorial), seule l'ombre de Lucky Luke a réussi à se faufiler dans le top 10 avec son aventure à Paris, signée Achdé et Jul.


Ces deux belles évolutions n'arrivent tout de même pas à faire oublier le léger retrait de 0,9 % du chiffre d'affaires du milieu de l'édition, ramenant seulement 3,94 Mds € dans les caisses avec 354 millions d'exemplaires écoulés.

Le premier semestre annonçait pourtant une bonne année à venir avec une augmentation de 2 % par rapport à l'année 2017. C'était sans compter un engouement mitigé de la rentrée littéraire de septembre (-6 % d'acheteurs et -10 % sur le chiffre d'affaires), mais également l'arrivée massive des fameux Gilets-Jaunes dans les rues (baisse de la clientèle éditoriale allant jusqu'à 7 % les semaines 46, 47 et 48). 

 

Néanmoins, les Français semblent plus sensibles aux sujets liés à l'actualité du moment. Selon GfK, les ouvrages traitant de l'écologie ont été 2,5 fois plus vendus que l'année précédente (575 000 exemplaires vendus pour 8,5 millions €). Quant aux livres autour de la contestation du système actuel et la libération de la parole des femmes, leur intérêt a doublé entre 2017 et 2018 (respectivement 547 000 ex. pour 9 millions € et 600 000 ex. pour 9 millions €).



Rappelons, pour terminer, le bilan positif du livre numérique qui s'élève à 103,3 millions € de chiffres d'affaires, en hausse de 6%. Le nombre d'acheteurs de ebooks s'élèverait à présent à 2,3 millions.


 

 
          Le “boom” de l'audiolivre résonne à la Foire du Livre de Londres      Cache   Translate Page      
LBF 2019 — Six années de croissance à deux chiffres aux États-Unis, une dynamique à peine moins importante au Royaume-Uni : les marchés de l'édition, dans les territoires anglophones, mais aussi en Europe, accueillent avec un plaisir non dissimulé le retour en grâce du livre audio. La Foire du Livre de Londres, qui accorde de plus en plus de place au format, est revenue sur cette croissance éditoriale hors normes.

Livre audio

Exit le livre numérique, l'avenir est au livre audio : la Foire du Livre de Londres, qui a inauguré cette année un séminaire consacré à ce format, s'est penchée sur la croissance continue que connait ce produit éditorial pas vraiment récent, mais adopté ces dernières années par un tout nouveau public. Longtemps cantonné à la jeunesse, le livre audio voit désormais ses ventes, aux États-Unis, réalisées à 75 % par la fiction et à 25 % par la non-fiction.
 

L'audiolivre n'est plus un format secondaire


Depuis 2013, outre-Atlantique, le livre audio vit un âge d'or : de 24.305 titres publiés en 2013, on passe à 42.960 en 2016, pour atteindre les 46.089 en 2017. « Désormais, le livre audio n'est plus un format secondaire, il est inclus dans les contrats dès leur signature », souligne Amanda D’Acierno, présidente et éditrice au sein de la filiale audio du groupe Penguin Random House, aux États-Unis.

La principale explication à l'adoption massive du livre audio se trouve dans l'équipement disponible : les smartphones, des lecteurs qui sont déjà dans toutes les poches, permettent désormais d'emporter avec soi des heures de lecture à voix haute. D'autres appareils, comme les « enceintes intelligentes » (les fameux smart speakers d'Amazon, Google et consorts) « représentent une part importante de l'usage, plus de 20 %, déjà, malgré une apparition récente », note Michele Cobb, directrice de l'association britannique des éditeurs de livres audio.

Au Royaume-Uni également, le livre audio s'impose comme le format éditorial à la croissance la plus rapide. La hausse des ventes s'établit à 13 % par rapport à 2017 et à 87 % par rapport à 2014. Les usages en développement réservent parfois des surprises : les éditeurs ont ainsi découvert que les auditeurs utilisaient le livre audio comme un moyen de détente, voire une opportunité pour reposer ses yeux, sans rien faire d'autre. 71 % des auditeurs le font à la maison, devant les 69 % qui profitent d'un trajet en voiture pour écouter un livre audio.

Une utilisation à mille lieues du multitasking [faire plusieurs choses en même temps, NdR] souvent mis en avant dans les campagnes de promotion pour les versions audio des ouvrages. « À présent, nous mettons aussi l'accent sur la détente, en faisant du livre audio une sorte de récompense après une longue journée de travail », commente Mary Beth Roche, éditrice et présidente de Macmillan Audio.
 

Capter l'écoute des auditeurs


La croissance d'un marché, surtout lorsqu'elle est aussi spectaculaire, multiplie la concurrence : de nombreuses sociétés de production ont inauguré des studios d'enregistrement à tour de bras, confirme Brad Rose, vice-président responsable des contenus pour Midwest Tape, hoopla digital et Dreamscape Media. Dans les pays anglophones, des narrateurs de livres audio gagnent à présent leur vie de cette seule activité, et se sont parfois équipés d'un home studio pour enregistrer à domicile.

Le phénomène audio gagne même l'autopublication, avec des auteurs indépendants qui enregistrent eux-mêmes leurs versions audio, font appel à des fournisseurs de services ou ont encore recours à des voix de synthèse — la solution la moins coûteuse, mais la moins confortable. Amazon, toujours à l'affût des nouveaux usages, a même monté une plateforme, ACX, pour mettre en relation narrateurs et auteurs indépendants.

Les auteurs tendent l'oreille eux aussi, même s'ils ne sont pas utilisateurs de livres audio : un narrateur chevronné pourra devenir leur partenaire dans une tournée de dédicaces, et ainsi participer à animer et rendre plus attractive une rencontre avec des lecteurs. Bien entendu, pour les éditeurs, s'offrir les services d'un narrateur prestigieux, le plus souvent un comédien ou une comédienne, peut générer un surplus d'intérêt pour un livre.

L'état de l'édition au Royaume-Uni,
en 2018

La surproduction guette-t-elle le livre audio ? Pas encore, mais apporter les titres aux auditeurs peut s'avérer difficile, lorsque les nouveautés pleuvent. Les éditeurs doivent alors rivaliser d'ingéniosité, du podcast maison au sponsoring d'un marathon, pour proposer des extraits gratuits de livres audio aux sportifs, pendant leur entrainement. Un partenariat avec une société de location de véhicules peut aussi permettre de faire connaitre le format audio et un de ses usages...

En attendant une adoption plus massive en France, où le format a été mis en avant par différents groupes éditoriaux, de Gallimard à Editis en passant par Actes Sud et Hachette, c'est aussi la multiplication des services d'achat, de consultation en streaming et de prêt, « qui donnent la possibilité aux auditeurs de picorer, selon leurs envies et leur budget », qui a permis à l'usage de passer le mur du son.

          Le Printemps Proustien : rendre accessible Proust au grand public      Cache   Translate Page      
À l'occasion du centenaire du Prix Goncourt décerné à Marcel Proust, l'Eure-et-Loir mettra à l'honneur l'auteur de À la recherche du temps perdu du 11 au 19 mai prochain. Dix jours de festivités culturelles et littéraires, d'animations et de spectacles, pour ouvrir l'univers de ce romancier que l'on se représente souvent comme élitiste au grand public. Le fil rouge du festival est triple : Proust, le Goncourt et la Belle Époque. 

Marcel Proust vers 1896
Marcel Proust vers 1896, Le Salon de la Mappemonde CC BY ND 2.0
 

Marcel Proust a reçu le Prix Goncourt en 1919 pour À l’ombre des jeunes filles en fleurs, un événement qu'il s'agit d'honorer ce printemps dans le département de l'Eure-et-Loir, terre d'enfance de l'écrivain. 

« Quand Marcel Proust a reçu le prix Goncourt en 1919 ici même, ce fut un scandale et un miracle. En 1919, la France était dans la continuation de la Grande Guerre, et devant Proust, il y avait un ancien combattant, Roland Dorgelès, avec son livre inspiré de son expérience de guerre Les Croix de bois. Et la littérature l'a vraisemblablement emporté sur le patriotisme », a affirmé Bernard Pivot, président de l'Académie Goncourt. 

Luc Fraisse, président de l'association Printemps Proustien, a continué : « Marcel Proust avait dit à propos du prix Goncourt que c'était le seul prix de valeur décerné à cette époque, car il était composé de l'unique jury qui savait ce qu’était un roman, et qui savait l'évaluer. »
 

"On est tous proustiens" 


« On devait célébrer cela. On devait célébrer Proust. Et on devait surtout célébrer cette oeuvre, qui nous parle aujourd'hui comme à l'époque. Nous sommes tous imprégnés de Proust, nous pensons avec Proust, que nous l'ayons lu ou pas », a repris Luc Fraisse.

« Proust est un monument de la littérature, de la culture, mais aussi de notre patrimoine. Il n'est pas poussiéreux, au contraire il nous rafraîchit et résonne encore beaucoup aujourd'hui. » 

Le Printemps Proustien, dans l'esprit d'un festival grand public, a pour but de réunir les habitants de l'Eure-et-Loir et les spécialistes de Proust, mais aussi d'ouvrir cet univers jugé élitiste aux enfants, aux familles, et à la classe populaire. 

À cette initiative, le Conseil départemental d'Eure et Loire offre 22.000 livres à tous les collégiens du département : Du côté de chez Proust de Laurence Grenier (First) pour les initier à son oeuvre. « En réalité, le chef-d'oeuvre de Marcel Proust est plus accessible qu'il n'y paraît. Il peut même être un compagnon utile dans notre vie de tous les jours », écrit Claude Térouinard, président de conseil Départemental d'Eure-et-Loir, dans la préface. 

« L'important est de se retrouver autour de cette oeuvre et de la transmettre, auprès des familles, des jeunes, Proust n'est pas réservé à une élite. Il s'agit de magnifier cette oeuvre dans le monde populaire, mais de manière exigeante », a déclaré Pierre Assouline. « Proust est pour nous une évidence, et je pense qu'on est tous proustiens. »  
 

Un festival pluridisciplinaire


C’est en suivant cette volonté de rendre accessible Proust au grand public, que de nombreux spectacles et animations seront organisés pendant les dix jours du festival. Pas de colloque réservé aux proustiens donc, mais bien des représentations, des expositions, des concours culinaires comme celui de la fameuse madeleine, des concerts-lectures et des projections cinématographiques autour de Proust.

Voici quelques incontournables du festival : le dessinateur Stéphane Heuet exposera sa traduction de À la recherche du temps perdu en bandes dessinées à la Médiathèque de Chartres. Traduite en 33 langues, publiée chez Delcourt, sa série rencontra un succès phénoménal, rendant accessible Proust à tous les publics.

la Grande Guerre numérisée

On comptera aussi les expositions de manuscrits avec notamment le « placard » de Proust, une grande feuille incluant huit pages d'épreuves manuscrites de l'écrivain qui vient d'être acquis par La Société des Amis de Marcel Proust. Le document sera présenté en exclusivité à la Maison de Tante Léonie.

De nombreuses expositions photos se tiendront aussi dans le département, dont Le Balbec de Marcel Proust à la Médiathèque d'Illiers-Combray qui réunie photographie et carte postale du lieu emblématique de À l’ombre des jeunes filles en fleurs. 

Sans oublier la mode : la fameuse salle à manger de la Maison de Tante Leonie, où la famille du jeune Marcel Proust prenait ses repas, retrouve vie grâce à des mannequins en costumes d’époque présentés par l’association Les modes au fil du temps.

Il y aura aussi de nombreux concerts-lectures ainsi que des représentations théâtrales. À Illiers-Combray, 130 enfants présenteront un spectacle autour de Marcel Proust et de son enfance, une belle oeuvre collective à découvrir en famille. Des étudiants du Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris viendront aussi interpréter de courtes pièces dans les jardins de la maison de tante Léonie.

Enfin, des projections cinématographiques auront lieu pendant les deux week-ends du festival dans le cinémobile à Illiers-Combray. 

Pour plus d'informations, le programme est disponible à cette adresse. 

"Les départements servent à quelque chose"

Cette manifestation, initiée par le Département d’Eure-et-Loir, soutenu par le Ministère de la Culture et en partenariat avec le magazine Lire, est placée sous le haut patronage de l’Académie Goncourt. Elle a été rendue possible grâce à de nombreux partenaires ainsi que quelque 640.000 euros. 

« Ce festival c'est aussi l'occasion de dire : “Les départements servent à quelque chose.”. Dans la période que nous traversons, la culture est le plus important. J'ai rarement vu de gilets jaunes avec un tome de Proust, on aurait dû leur offrir Sodome et Gomorrhe », a tenu à souligner Claude Térouinard, président du Conseil départemental d'Eure-et-Loir. « Si l'Eure-et-Loir semble être un département qui sommeille, on veut aussi montrer que nous ne sommes pas que des ploucs. »

Une intervention qui aura comme jeté une madeleine, voire un sucre – ce qui est bien pire –, dans une tasse à thé...

En point d’orgue, un salon du livre se déroulera à la collégiale Saint-André, à Chartres, samedi 18 et dimanche 19 mai, en présence d’une cinquantaine d’auteurs dont plusieurs Académiciens et Prix Goncourt, ainsi que des spécialistes venus du monde entier.

          Collège de France : Yanick Lahens occupera la Chaire Mondes francophones      Cache   Translate Page      
La romancière Yanick Lahens a été invitée à occuper la Chaire Mondes francophones du Collège de France pour l’année 2018-2019. Sa première leçon inaugurale sera donnée ce 21 mars à 18 h, et sera ouverte au public. Les cours débuteront, eux, à compter du 1er avril – ouverts à tous et gratuits, sous réserve d’inscription.

Yanick Lahens est la première personnalité à occuper cette chaire créée en partenariat avec l’Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF). Le Collège de France et l’AUF entendent ainsi illustrer la diversité et la richesse des mondes francophones en donnant une tribune aux chercheurs des pays ayant le français en partage. Créée pour trois ans, cette chaire accueillera chaque année une grande voix de la francophonie issue de différents domaines des lettres, des arts et des sciences.

La langue restant le lien premier de cet espace francophone, c’est une grande figure de la littérature haïtienne, prix Femina 2014 pour Bain de lune (Sabine Wespieser éditeur), qui a été invitée à inaugurer cette chaire. « Une personnalité remarquable de la littérature et de la culture en langue française », selon le Pr Antoine Compagnon, titulaire de la chaire Littérature française moderne et contemporaine : histoire, critique, théorie.
 
« Avec la création de cette chaire, le Collège de France souhaite donner une tribune et un nouvel espace d’enseignement et de recherche aux intellectuels et scientifiques majeurs des pays francophones. Il s’agit de faire entendre les voix riches et multiples qui œuvrent dans ces pays et à travers la langue française au développement de la science et de la pensée. Il s’agit de développer l’idée d’un espace francophone structuré et structurant dans le paysage international de la recherche et du débat d’idées », note le Pr Alain Prochiantz, Administrateur du Collège de France, titulaire de la chaire Processus morphogénétiques.
 
« La chaire Mondes francophones permettra de montrer toute la pluralité, la diversité et la richesse de l’espace francophone. En nous associant au Collège de France pour la création de cette chaire, nous avons voulu, ensemble, mettre la recherche au service de cette mission en nous appuyant à la fois sur le prestige de cette institution, notre réseau international de premier plan et nos expertises respectives. Yanick Lahens saura jouer à n’en point douter son rôle de première ambassadrice de cette chaire, qu’elle animera avec talent et enthousiasme », souligne Jean-Paul de Gaudemar, Recteur de l’AUF
 
Douces déroutes, de Yanick Lahens

La leçon inaugurale de Yanick Lahens ainsi que l’ensemble de son enseignement bénéficieront d’une large diffusion grâce au relais privilégié de RFI (France Médias Monde), de TV5MONDE, du réseau des campus numériques francophones de l’AUF, et de l’Institut français, qui soutiennent la diffusion des travaux de la chaire Mondes francophones.
 

Littérature haïtienne : urgence(s) d’écrire, rêve(s) d’habiter


Pour l'occasion, Yanick Lahens signe un texte, Littérature haïtienne : urgence(s) d’écrire, rêve(s) d’habiter, reproduit ci-dessous dans son intégralité.

Aujourd’hui les recherches sur la formation de la modernité, de l’Empire et de ses projets nationaux ne peuvent être isolées de celles portant sur le monde colonial. Haïti est à la fois un produit et une matrice de ces croisements et sa littérature en est une des premières métaphorisations. Il est indispensable de comprendre à partir de la dynamique de ces croisements comment Haïti, isolée pendant de longues décennies a, depuis le début du XIXe siècle, délocalisé la culture et la langue de France et aménagé leur acclimatation à sa façon. 

La révolte victorieuse des esclaves de Saint-Domingue en 1804 face à l’armée napoléonienne est un de ces savoirs essentiels à exhumer. Ce mouvement insurrectionnel était un impensé et a opéré un saut qualitatif inédit. Si la révolution américaine représente un incontestable progrès des Lumières parce qu’elle fait avancer les libertés individuelles, la pratique de l’esclavage lui survivra près d’un siècle plus tard. Si la Révolution française fait avancer les droits de l’homme, la France maintient l’esclavage dans certaines contrées et renforce le processus de colonisation dans d’autres.

La révolution haïtienne, elle, outrepasse le projet des Lumières en faisant avancer de manière radicale la question de l’égalité, mettant ainsi en acte une autre intelligibilité du monde. Les écrivains et écrivaines d’Haïti, de la fin du XVIIIe siècle à nos jours, ont toujours tenté de formuler à la fois la mise en acte de cette nouvelle intelligibilité et ce que seule la littérature peut dire au monde quand les autres significations butent. 

Haïti est le premier pays de ce Sud fabriqué par cette modernité économique et politique née des Lumières et elle est le moule dans lequel seront coulées les relations qui s’instaureront entre le Nord et le Sud jusqu’à aujourd’hui. Du Sud elle a connu avant les autres tous les avatars qu’engendreront ces relations, dont la reproduction après l’indépendance d’une colonisation interne. 

Jamais l’urgence n’a donc desserré son étau sur les déportés que nous fûmes et toujours les écrivains et écrivaines ont poursuivi un rêve d’habiter le monde « de plein jour et de plain-pied ». 

Le monde francophone est un et divisible. Le Collège de France l’a bien compris en faisant choix de cet intitulé Mondes francophones, qui scelle à la fois l’unité en tant que ce qui traverse ces mondes et la pluralité que constitue la dynamique propre à chacun de ces espaces. Faire advenir les mondes francophones exigera de passer par le partage des savoirs historiques et culturels de ces mondes et par l’écoute de nouvelles narrations qui rendront plus audibles les altérités qui les constituent.

Parce que, bien que les espaces francophones et particulièrement Haïti participent d’une mémoire commune, leurs savoirs historiques et culturels, ne sont encore ni reconnus ni admis à part entière. La littérature haïtienne est une des expressions esthétisées de ces savoirs historiques et culturels. La leçon inaugurale comme les enseignements qui suivront ne sauraient faire l’économie de cette clarification liminaire. 

Dire Haïti et sa littérature autrement à travers l’ensemble des cours, c’est se demander quel éclairage peut apporter aujourd’hui au monde francophone sinon au monde tout court l’expérience haïtienne ? Comment dans l’impasse qui suit son indépendance, des hommes et des femmes dépossédés, déplacés, déstabilisés linguistiquement créent une civilisation dont la littérature sera un élément majeur ?

Comment des écrivains et écrivaines n’ont pas cessé de dire ou d’écrire un rêve d’habiter, démontrant par là même que la littérature commence souvent là où la parole devient impossible. Là où le monde est si ébranlé qu’il faut traverser le langage pour lui trouver des éclats de sens. 

À partir de 1804, ceux et celles qui n’ont d’autre choix que d’habiter ces 27.750 km2, à peine plus étendus que certains départements de l’Hexagone, sont sommés de s’inventer et d’inventer dans ce lieu non connu, non imaginé, non désiré. À cette sommation les écrivains répondront durant deux siècles en nourrissant un rêve d’habiter un corps qui ne soit plus celui du migrant nu, selon la belle formule de Glissant, un lieu et un temps fondateurs, d’habiter l’écriture comme lieu premier, originel, un lieu aussi non de simple enracinement, mais de possible séjour et enfin un lieu au-delà de l’ethnie ou de la classe, aussi vaste que le silence ou l’inconnu. 

Et aujourd’hui que la littérature haïtienne s’écrit dans trois langues autres que le français, elle atteste que les langues sont appelées à cohabiter, qu’elles ne sauraient avoir qu’un unique drapeau ou qu’une seule patrie et préfigure une culture du XXIe siècle en train de se faire. 

Étudier la littérature haïtienne à la lumière de son histoire permet de donner au qualificatif francophone une signification hors de tout eurocentrisme. Une signification qui sied à notre temps, la seule susceptible de lui assurer un avenir. 
          Un livre dans le tiroir, le podcast de Kobo débarque sur la toile      Cache   Translate Page      
La société canadienne Rakuten Kobo s'est imposée aujourd'hui comme acteur majeur sur le marché du livre numérique et, depuis le printemps dernier, sur celui du livre audio. C'est dans cette continuité que la marque a décidé de lancer, ce mardi 12 mars 2019, une collection de podcasts intitulée : « Un livre dans le tiroir ».

Logo de l'émission (via Soundcloud)
 
 

Une diffusion mensuelle d'une demi-heure


Chaque podcast sera diffusé mensuellement et durera une trentaine de minutes. La collection va s’articuler autour d’une thématique commune : l'autoédition. Le but du projet est de s’appuyer sur le travail réalisé par les auteurs autoédités sur la plateforme Kobo Writing Life.

Les enregistrements iront à la rencontre d’un auteur pour découvrir son quotidien et son expérience dans le milieu de l'écriture. Les rencontres se dérouleront en studio et lors d’événements auxquels est associé Rakuten Kobo (« Livre Paris », « Quai du Polar » à Lyon, « Salon FNAC Livres » à Paris...).

En bonus, à la fin de chaque podcast, deux minutes seront consacrées à l’actualité de Rakuten Kobo sous la forme d’un « Coup de cœur du libraire ».
 

Une première émission déjà en ligne


La collection de podcasts « Un livre dans le tiroir » est lancée à partir d'une association entre Rakuten Kobo et « En roues Libres ». Cette dernière est la première offre de podcasts en immersion dans les festivals et les événements culturels, créée par Alexandre Héraud, animateur et producteur chez Radio France depuis 25 ans.

Le premier podcast a été réalisé aux côtés de Samantha Bailly, auteure de romans de fantasy, de romans réalistes contemporains, de contes, de scénarios de mangas et de films. Elle a lancé en 2016 sa chaîne YouTube sur laquelle elle aborde des thèmes autour de l’écriture. Elle réunit aujourd'hui plus de 18.800 abonnés.
 


La jeune femme a évoqué dans cette première émission son parcours dans le monde de l'édition : ses premiers écrits, sa première signature d'un contrat d’édition, ainsi que son dernier roman La Marelle, publié en autopublication numérique sur la plateforme Kobo Writing Life.

Le premier podcast de « Un livre dans le tiroir » est d'ores et déjà disponible sur Soundcloud.
 

          Naufragé du monde du travail : “Nous sommes plus de 2 millions de zombies”      Cache   Translate Page      
Arthur Macua s’est vu remettre le Grand Prix de la Journée du Manuscrit Francophone 2018. Ce livre, De profundis II : Pensées d’un jeune diplômé naufragé de l’emploi, témoigne des efforts d’un jeune multi-diplômé pour entrer sur le marché du travail en temps de crise, et décrit la lente chute psychologique et physique que les échecs entraînent, une vraie descente aux enfers.


 

Le titre fait explicitement référence à Oscar Wilde, et à sa lettre écrite depuis sa geôle de Reading. Cependant, aujourd’hui la prison ne fait plus peur à personne. Ce qui fait peur aujourd’hui : c’est le chômage.

Arthur Macua est un jeune auteur de 31 ans dont c’est le premier livre. Il ose se mettre à nu pour décrire l’expérience traumatisante que constitue le chômage jusqu’à l’isolement social et pour lui l’hospitalisation.

Pour autant, il publie sous un pseudonyme de peur que son nom reste associé au chômage dans tous les moteurs de recherche. Il ne veut pas gager son avenir, car il sait qu’un jour il pourrait redevenir un chômeur, un zombie : « Nous sommes des zombies. Plus de 2 millions de zombies. »

En 2018, il tente sa chance à la Journée du Manuscrit et remporte le Grand Prix du Jury. Pendant 3 mois, il a retravaillé son texte en bénéficiant des conseils d’un Directeur Littéraire, Wilfried N’Sondé, un écrivain français d'origine congolaise. Son dernier livre, Un océan, deux mers trois continents, paru chez Actes Sud, a reçu 6 prix littéraires dont Kourouma, France Bleu, Lire/ BFM.

« Ce livre devrait être obligatoire dans toutes les grandes écoles. » Arthur Macua dédicacera son essai au salon Livre Paris le dimanche 17 mars sur le stand N52.

Inspirée de la fête de la musique, la Journée du Manuscrit Francophone permet à tous les auteurs de publier un livre chaque année le 24 octobre. Les meilleurs livres sont récompensés par un jury d’écrivains et leurs auteurs remportent un contrat d’édition.

Pendant longtemps, « Don’t be evil » (qu’on pourrait traduire par « Ne faites pas le mal ») a été le mantra de Google – sa devise informelle. Remplacée en 2018 par « Do the right Thing » (« Faites ce qui est bien »), elle synthétise pourtant l’époque d’une manière aussi clairvoyante que concise : chaque innovation pourra être utilisée à bon ou à mauvais escient.

On passera sur les implications philosophiques desdites devises – qu’est-ce que le Mal dans le domaine de l’ingénierie, d’ailleurs qu’est-ce que le Mal tout court ? – pour se concentrer sur l’ambivalence permanente dans laquelle nous flottons : la plupart des technologies que nous utilisons de façon quotidienne peuvent aussi bien être utilisée à notre avantage qu’en notre défaveur.
 

Prenons un exemple : une enceinte connectée type Alexa (Amazon) est capable, d’un simple ordre vocal, de lancer la lecture d’une playlist, d’allumer la lumière ou de lire une histoire à votre enfant. Mais cette même enceinte peut aussi poser de graves problèmes de sécurité (en étant hackée) ou de confidentialité (vous avez laissé Amazon poser un micro dans votre salon, tout de même).
 

Le cas du livre numérique


De la même manière, l’émergence du livre numérique et des plateformes d’autopublication a permis à des millions d’auteurs de diffuser leurs créations à grande échelle, de façon dématérialisée mais aussi imprimée (grâce à l’impression à la demande). Certains d’entre eux ont bâti de véritables notoriétés, et sans aller jusqu’à parler de fortune, à gagner plus d’argent que ne leur aurait permis un contrat d’édition « classique ».
 

Mais cette disponibilité a un coût, autant financier que moral : celui des infrastructures qui mettent ces livres à disposition. Aujourd’hui, Amazon et Google (Apple et Kobo également, dans une moindre mesure) assurent l’essentiel de ce trafic. Ces entreprises s’assurent que les livres dont vous leur confiez les fichiers soient disponibles à tout moment : vous bénéficiez de la puissance de leur infrastructure. En échange, ces distributeurs ponctionnent leur part sur chaque transaction effectuée – les petits ruisseaux faisant les grandes rivières.
 

Mais est-ce bien tout ce qu’ils ponctionnent ?


Car tout le monde pourrait être content… si Amazon, Google et consorts ne mettaient pas autant d’énergie à développer des programmes d’intelligence artificielle basés sur le machine learning. Et ils ne sont pas les seuls : il y a quelques semaines, la plateforme d'autopublication Wattpad présentait son algorithme destiné à aider sa future maison d’édition à dénicher les bestsellers.

Comme Amazon et Google (pourquoi croyez-vous d’ailleurs que Google se soit lancé dans un programme de numérisation massive des fonds de bibliothèques américaines), Wattpad est dans une position idéale pour cela, puisqu’elle dispose d’un grand nombre de manuscrits publiés sur sa plateforme gratuite et que le machine learning nécessite justement l’analyse d’un très grand nombre de documents afin d’y repérer des schémas.
 

En bref : les plateformes auxquelles les auteurs confient leurs précieux manuscrits sont aussi celles qui sont les plus actives dans le domaine de l’intelligence artificielle et du machine learning. Vous voyez où je veux en venir ?

 

Les algorithmes au clavier

 

Aujourd’hui, en salle de presse, il n’est plus tabou de parler d’algorithme rédacteur de contenu. Ainsi, le Los Angeles Times a conçu un quake-bot qui rédige et publie automatiquement un article à chaque tremblement de terre. D’autres quotidiens, papier et web, utilisent l’intelligence artificielle pour mettre en avant les résultats sportifs ou les bulletins météo. La France n’est pas en reste : en 2015, Le Monde utilisait déjà un programme chargé de publier une page web pour chacune des 36.000 municipalités afin d’afficher le résultat des élections (source : Le Devoir).

Et il n’y a pas que la presse à être touchée : en 2016, le programme Benjamin écrivait le scénario d’un court-métrage de science-fiction. Et même si le résultat était un peu… étonnant, il n’en demeurait pas moins impressionnant.



 

Le remplacement des auteurs n’est plus du domaine de la science-fiction

 

L’intelligence artificielle brûle de raconter des histoires. Et de là à toucher, d’ici à quelques années, aux domaines de la littérature, il n’y a qu’un pas. Mais pour cela, il faudra bien entendu que les machines s’entraînent. Et il leur faudra lire beaucoup, beaucoup, d’histoires, beaucoup, beaucoup, de manuscrits, analyser leurs ressorts narratifs, mais aussi étudier ce qui fonctionne ou pas, quel texte remporte les faveurs des utilisateurs, à quel moment la lectrice A cesse sa lecture et à quel moment le lecteur B l’interrompt, afin d’en dégager des « patterns » .

Et pour cela, le meilleur moyen est encore de posséder toutes les infrastructures d’une librairie en ligne et d’un service de lecture numérique.
 

On aboutit alors à une situation paradoxale qui, avouons-le, ne manque pas de piquant : ce sont les écrivains et les éditeurs d’aujourd’hui qui, en publiant leurs textes sur ces plateformes, nourrissent les machines qui, à terme, apprendront à les remplacer. Car plus on publiera sur Amazon, Google, Wattpad, etc, meilleurs deviendront leurs algorithmes, et plus vite on accélèrera l’avènement d’un tel futur.
 

Et pourtant, si l’on veut s’autopublier – et si l’on veut même simplement vendre des livres numériques, en tant qu’indépendant ou industriel –, ces plateformes demeurent les plus performantes. Elles sont aussi et surtout les plus riches du point de vue de la masse d’utilisateurs déjà captifs de leur écosystème. D’où le dilemme. Car dans les conditions d’utilisation de Kindle Direct Publishing, rien n’explicite clairement qu’un tel usage pourra être fait de nos histoires… mais rien ne l’interdit non plus (voir paragraphe 5.5 : Concession de droits).
 

Don’t be evil, do the right thing… Finalement tout cela dépend de nos propres notions de bien et de mal, et de notre propre tolérance à la servitude volontaire. Cela dépend aussi des calculs stratégiques que nous effectuons à l’échelle de l’industrie.
 

En attendant, les machines apprennent.


Dossier : L'intelligence artificielle au service du livre et de la lecture


          Le chauffeur de Conan Doyle : un truand devenu légende      Cache   Translate Page      
BD - Jules Bonnot, célèbre truand du XXe siècle fit trembler la France entière. Devenu ennemi public numéro un, ce bandit romantique nous entraine dans une aventure hors du commun, celle d'un homme qui refusa catégoriquement de se soumettre aux lois d'une société injuste. Plongez sans attendre dans l'univers de La Bande à Bonnot.
Par Johnny Domingues
 Le drawmadaire


Il serait difficile de ne pas se prendre d’affection pour Jules Bonnot, mort le 28 avril 1912 au terme d’un siège qui aura duré près de cinq heures. Anarchiste et truand renommé de la Belle Époque, Bonnot fit trembler Paris et la France entière de par ses crimes et nombreux braquages toujours dirigés contre l’autorité en place.

Un homme ordinaire, bricoleur talentueux, mécanicien hors pair, Bonnot s’est très vite entouré d’une fine équipe prête à défier les lois. À l’image des héros — ou anti-héros — de la littérature de l’époque, celui qui fut un temps le chauffeur de sir Arthur Conan Doyle était destiné à entrer dans la légende. 

En ce qui concerne le scénario, Jean-David Morvan, Stefan Vogel ainsi que Laura Pierce ont tous trois travaillé en collaboration afin d’établir une ligne directrice commune. Sans rentrer dans le romantisme à outrance, la volonté de coller aux faits réels marque le ton de ce roman graphique. Une justesse scénaristique qui permet d’allier plaisir de lecture et vérité historique, tant la fluidité des dialogues est appréciable. 

Il est également important de noter que le récit, qui rappelons-le s’appuie sur des faits réels, a été légèrement modifié par « souci de rythme et d’intensité dramatique », comme le souligne l’avant-propos en début de lecture.

Les illustrations d’Attila Futaki, auteur de bandes dessinées et peintre hongrois, sont d’une finesse sans pareille. En effet, nous pouvons ressentir le souci du détail à travers une patte artistique des plus talentueuses. La retranscription historique est une tâche qui peut s’avérer ardue, mais Futaki a su s’imprégner de La Belle Époque afin de proposer un rendu réussi. Les couleurs sont variées et la recherche constante de véracité se fait ressentir. Plonger dans les rues de Paris s’avère alors être une aventure prenante et addictive.

Ainsi, n’hésitez pas à découvrir l’homme derrière le truand, Jules plutôt que Bonnot, et participez à l’aventure excitante et ô combien humaine du célèbre truand devenu légende.

          Dem House Passes Anti-Democratic Election Overhaul      Cache   Translate Page      

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives passed an outrageous legislative assault on fair elections and the First Amendment last week that would drive up the occurrence of the voter fraud Democrats increasingly rely on to win elections.

The House approved H.R. 1, dubbed the proposed “For the People Act,” on a strict party line vote of 234 to 193 on March 8. Conservatives quite correctly denounced the measure as a “voter fraud and election theft” wish list.

Even the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) trashed the bill, saying it would “unconstitutionally infringe on the speech and associational rights of many public interest organizations and American citizens.”

In a tweet, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) described H.R. 1 as the “Democrat Politician Protection Act,” after previously saying the measure was “a massive power grab.”

“What is the problem that we’re trying to solve here? We had the highest turnout last year since 1966 in an off-year election,” McConnell reportedly said March 6. “People are flooding to the polls … because they’re animated. They’re interested. This is a solution in search of a problem. What it really is, is designed to make it more likely that Democrats win more often.”

On the day the House passed the bill, McConnell repeated his vow never to allow the bill to move to the Senate floor for a vote. This means H.R. 1 will likely become a big issue for both parties on the campaign trail in 2020.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) tweeted: “Democrats did not design #HR1 to protect your vote. They designed it to put a thumb on the scale of every election in America and keep the Swamp swampy.”

At a leftist pep rally, Democrat lawmakers lied about the nation’s voting system, whining about how difficult it is for their poor bumbling voters to produce valid identification at the polls, even though presenting ID is now a requirement in our society to do virtually anything worth doing.

"For months, for years, really for decades, millions of Americans have been looking at Washington and feeling like they've been left behind," said the principal author of the bill, Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.). "Too many Americans have faced this challenge where getting to the ballot box every two years is like getting through an obstacle course."

“H.R. 1 restores the people’s faith that government works for the public interest, the people’s interests, not the special interests,” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday in a rare moment of coherence.

We’ve been down this pothole-riddled road before.

Democrats used their newly won House majority to approve H.R. 1 with minimal public discussion of the measure, just as the newly inaugurated Bill Clinton rammed a massive overhaul of the electoral system through Congress a short time after taking office. Clinton acted at a time when voter participation was rising and there was no popularly expressed demand for reform. Clinton and Democratic lawmakers sandbagged the Republican opposition before lawmakers had much of a chance even to digest the sweeping legislation.

The so-called Motor Voter law Congress passed 26 years ago opened up new frontiers for voter fraud.

As John Fund wrote in his book, Stealing Elections:

Perhaps no piece of legislation in the last generation better captures the 'incentivizing' of fraud... than the 1993 National Voter Registration Act[.] ... Examiners were under orders not to ask anyone for identification or proof of citizenship. States also had to permit mail-in voter registrations, which allowed anyone to register without any personal contact with a registrar or election official. Finally, states were limited in pruning 'dead wood' - people who had died, moved or been convicted of crimes - from their rolls. ... Since its implementation, Motor Voter has worked in one sense: it has fueled an explosion of phantom voters.

And who pushed Motor Voter?

Small-c communists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven spearheaded the drive to pass the law. They believed that poor people and radical agitators had every moral right to game the electoral system in order to bring about change. Cloward didn't worry about fraud, either. "It's better to have a little bit of fraud than to leave people off the rolls who belong there," he said. President Clinton gave a shout-out to Cloward and Piven at the bill-signing ceremony in 1993 that both attended.

Sentient Republicans knew the bill was an atrocity. On final passage, the Senate vote was 62 to 36, with only seven Republicans voting "yea." The House vote was 259 to 164, with only 20 Republicans voting "yea."

"Between 1994 and 1998, nearly 26 million names were added to the voter rolls nationwide, almost a 20 percent increase," according to Fund.  Motor Voter has "been registering illegal aliens, since anyone who receives a government benefit [including welfare] may also register to vote with no questions asked."

H.R. 1 is even more ambitious than Motor Voter, according to a summary of the bill’s provisions in The Epoch Times.

It would make Election Day a federal holiday (actually, that’s not a terrible idea), mandate automatic voter registration and same-day voter registration, strip state legislatures of redistricting responsibilities and give those powers to independent commissions, forbid federal lawmakers from serving on corporate boards, and force U.S. presidents –wink, wink, President Trump— to release their tax returns.

“H.R. 1 expands access to voting in a number of ways, including forcing states to implement early voting, online voter registration, and ‘no-fault’ absentee balloting, or the issuance of absentee ballots without requiring a reason for their request,” according to the summary.

Christian Adams, a former Department of Justice civil rights attorney and president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, told lawmakers earlier this year that H.R. 1 is bound to boost fraud.

“The voter rolls are currently full of ineligible voters who have died or moved out of the jurisdiction where they are registered,” Adams said.

“H.R.1 would make the problem worse by stripping the power of states to manage their own voter rolls to keep them clean using well-established best practices, such as postal mailings and recurring inactivity of registrants in elections. H.R.1’s mandate that states stop using these tools is just bad public policy.”

According to the summary, “[t]he measure also requires eligible voters to be registered automatically through state driver’s license offices and welfare departments unless they affirmatively decline. Felons would be automatically registered upon release from prison, and prospective voters would be able to both register and vote on the same day, including on Election Day.”

The bill also “mandates federal funding to match small-dollar donations and would deposit the funding into campaign bank accounts. It further requires the disclosure of donors who give more than $10,000 to tax-exempt nonprofit organizations, such as 501(c)4 groups.”

Current tax law permits such so-called “dark money” donors to remain anonymous to shield them from political reprisals. The Supreme Court ruled in 1958 in NAACP v.

Alabama ex rel. Patterson that Alabama could not force the National Association for the

Advancement of Colored People to hand over the names and addresses of all its members in that state.

But the Left is salivating at the prospect of using social media to hound conservative donors for daring to contribute to conservative causes.

Because terrorizing their adversaries is what leftists do.

          Alexandre Dumas’s Magnum Opus Was a Massive Cookbook      Cache   Translate Page      
article-image

Born in 1802, Alexandre Dumas would write some of the most popular books of 19th-century literature. His works, such as The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo, are still cultural touchstones today. The grandson of a French aristocrat and a slave of African descent, Dumas climbed the steep ladder of French society through the power of his pen. But in Dumas’s own estimation, his masterwork was to be a massive undertaking on culinary history, one he called Le Grand Dictionnaire de cuisine. Sadly, he never saw it published. The writer’s pet project, which he referred to as “the pillow of my old age,” was released posthumously in 1873, three years after his death.

That he was an accomplished cook and gastronome was evident during Dumas’s lifetime. As a journalist, Dumas published a conversational piece, “Causerie Culinaire,” in 1858. Roughly translated as “A Chat About Cooking,” it was a contemplation of Dumas’s gastronomic life, covering everything from his childhood to a recipe for Neapolitan macaroni. Dumas would follow with other columns on cooking, published in various French daily and weekly papers. The diaries of his contemporaries, such as George Sand, also record the suppers given by la famille Dumas, where Dumas père was occasionally to be found toiling in the kitchen.

In 1869, Dumas gathered his cookbooks and research and moved to the western coast of France to his seaside retreat in Roscoff on Cape Finisterre. There, he set upon the task of writing his gastronomic magnum opus. Early the next year, he sent the manuscript, an 1,150-page tour de force with hand-drawn illustrations, to his friend, the publisher Alphonse Lemerre. But the Franco-Prussian War broke out in July 1870. As a result, the book was set aside by Lemerre, who, mainly a publisher of poetry, was probably utterly confounded by the prospect of editing Le Grand Dictionnaire. Dumas died on December 5, 1870. While Lemerre did publish Le Grand Dictionnaire three years later, he never released a second edition. However, he published an abridged Petit Dictionnaire later.

article-image

Dumas dedicated Le Grand Dictionnaire to his dear friend Jules Janin, a novelist, journalist, and theater critic. In the form of a letter, Dumas takes his friend through the history of French cuisine, recounting the offerings at various royal tables and including tidbits of culinary trivia. For example, Dumas claims that bayonnaise—later called mayonnaise—was invented in the kitchens of the Duke of Richelieu (a legend that is as often repeated as it is disputed). He writes of holding suppers in the 1840s, where he served a particularly delicious salad. The salad was so well-regarded that one of his regular guests, unable to attend a dinner, had it brought to him under the protection of an umbrella.

The preface to the Dictionnaire also includes a “Letter to Readers.” Dumas recommends the “gluttony of delicate souls,” his jovial euphemism for a dinner party. The exemplary host, he advises, gathers together three to nine guests: “never less numerous than the Graces, never more than the Muses.” Along with advice, Dumas regales his readers with descriptions of epic Roman banquets, where guests brought their own golden napkins and feasted on hundreds of tiny birds, such as ortolans. He proceeds to draw elaborate epicurean fantasies of the culinary exploits of the Western world. The United States gets a fleeting mention. “After Paris, the city with the most restaurants is San Francisco,” Dumas writes. “It has restaurants from every country, even China.”

The entries in the Dictionnaire read like a culinary encyclopedia, beginning with “Absinthe” and ending with “Zest.” There’s a recipe to cook elephant, and the entry on celery contains the tenuous claim that people in classical times wore it in garlands during meals to minimize the effects of wine. The book contains a variety of recipes, from the mundane and doable apricot cream cheese to gourmand adventures such as a dish made with sixty rabbit tongues.

But Le Grand Dictionnaire de cuisine is more than a cookbook. Dumas meant it to be a formidable inquiry into both gustation and gastronomy, utilized by enthusiasts and culinary professionals alike. The entries cover ingredients, cooking tools, and cooking techniques. In an early instance of product placement, there are several pages dedicated to the history of mustard as a condiment. At the end, Dumas thoroughly endorses the mustard-maker Bornibus.

article-image

Alan and Jane Davidson, translators and editors of Dumas on Food, a 1978 English abridged edition of Le Grand Dictionnaire, wrote that the French received the Dictionnaire with kindness, but little critical interest. Dumas’s declining fame might have been to blame. The work also had factual errors and an inconsistent format. The Davidsons note that Dumas wrote only half a page on the subject of milk, while the South American wild bird hocco received two. Cheese has two pages, but ambergris, a whale secretion used as flavoring, has five: a curious imbalance for a culinary work aimed at the French public.

Dumas’s historical novels, featuring swashbuckling musketeers and aristocratic scandals, brought him lasting fame. But he had hoped Le Grand Dictionnaire de cuisine would be the crowning jewel in his literary oeuvre. In a twist worthy of a novel, the gastronomic swan song of this 19th century literary maverick is almost constantly overlooked today.

          American Minute for March 13th      Cache   Translate Page      
In the U.S. Capitol Rotunda is a sculpture of women suffrage leaders Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucretia Mott. Lucretia Mott was a noted Quaker minister praised by Frederick Douglass. She spoke at a Women's Rights Convention in Philadelphia, October 18, 1854, in front of a large audience which included supporters William Lloyd Garrison and her husband, Quaker leader James Mott, who founded the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society. Lucretia Mott stated: "On the occasion of the first miracle which it is said Christ wrought, a woman went before Him and said, 'Whatsoever he biddeth you do, that do.' The woman of Samaria said, 'Come and see the man who told me all the things that ever I did' ... The very first act of note that is mentioned when the disciples and apostles went forth after Jesus was removed from them, was the bringing up of an ancient prophecy to prove that they were right in the position they assumed on that occasion, when men and women were gathered together on the holy day of Pentecost, when every man heard and saw those wonderful works which are recorded. Then Peter stood forth--some one has said that Peter made a great mistake in quoting the prophet Joel--but he stated that 'the time is come, this day is fulfilled the prophecy, when it is said, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,' etc.--the language of the Bible is beautiful in its repetition--'upon my servants and my handmaidens I will pour out my spirit and they shall prophesy.' Now can anything be clearer than that?" Lucretia Mott, who is featured on a U.S. Postage Stamp, advocated for women suffrage, stating December 17, 1849: "The laws given on Mount Sinai for the government of man and woman were equal, the precepts of Jesus make no distinction. Those who read the Scriptures, and judge for themselves, not resting satisfied with the perverted application of the text, do not find the distinction, that theology and ecclesiastical authorities have made, in the condition of the sexes." Susan B. Anthony is depicted on a U.S. dollar coin, and on a 3-cent stamp. Susan B. Anthony was raised a Quaker. Her father owned a cotton mill and refused to buy cotton from farmers who owned slaves. Susan B. Anthony's religious upbringing instilled in her the concept that every one is equal before God and motivated her to crusade for freedom for slaves. After the Civil War, Susan B. Anthony worked hard for the passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments. Opposing liquor, drunkenness and abortion, Susan encountered mobs, armed threats, objects thrown at her and was hung in effigy. Her efforts helped bring about the 18th Amendment (Prohibition), ratified in 1919. She succeeded in having women admitted to the University of Rochester, and campaigned for a woman's right to vote. Susan B. Anthony was arrested for voting in the 1872 Presidential Election, saying she "positively voted the Republican ticket-straight." Fourteen years after her death, women won the right to vote with the 19th Amendment, ratified in 1920. After learning her sister-in-law had had an abortion, Susan B. Anthony wrote in her diary: "She will rue the day she forces nature." Susan B. Anthony was quoted in The Revolution, July 1869: "I deplore the horrible crime of child-murder ... No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh! Thrice guilty is he who ... drove her to the desperation which impels her to the crime." In a speech she gave repeatedly in the 1870s, Susan B. Anthony stated: "The prosecutions on our courts for breach of promise, divorce, adultery, bigamy, seduction, rape; the newspaper reports every day of every year of scandals and outrages, of wife murders and paramour shooting, of abortions and infanticides, are perpetual reminders of men's incapacity to cope successfully with this monster evil of society." Susan B. Anthony, who died MARCH 13, 1906, wrote in 1889 to Frances Willard, the national president of Woman's Christian Temperance Union: "Sweeter even than to have had the joy of caring for children of my own has it been to me to help bring about a better state of things for mothers generally, so that their unborn little ones could not be willed away from them." Francis Willard was the first woman college president in the United States. She advocated for the passage of the 18th Amendment, prohibiting alcohol, and the 19th Amendment, allowing women to vote. Her statue is the National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol Building. Frances Willard, whose family changed from Congregational Christian to Methodist, wrote in A White Life for Two (Chicago: Women's Temperance Publishing Association, 1890): "God sets male and female side by side throughout his realm of law." Frances Willard's older cousin was Emma Willard (1787-1870), who was an American educator and historian. Emma was born in Berlin, Connecticut and began teaching at the age of sixteen. Emma was married to John Willard in 1809, and with his help she established a girl's boarding school in Middlebury, Vermont. She founded Troy Female Seminary in 1821, which was the first school in the United States to offer higher education for women. Elizabeth Cady Stanton graduated from Troy Female Seminary in 1832. Regarding abortion, Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote: "There must be a remedy for such a crying evil as this ... Let woman assert herself ... and end this wholesale suffering and murder of helpless children." In 1895, seminary was renamed the Emma Willard School. Emma wrote many successful books and later built a school for women in Athens, Greece. In 1843, Emma Willard wrote: "The government of the United States is acknowledged by the wise and good of other nations, to be the most free, impartial, and righteous government of the world; but all agree, that for such a government to be sustained for many years, the principles of truth and righteousness, taught in the Holy Scriptures, must be practiced. The rulers must govern in the fear of God, and the people obey the laws." In commenting on the United States, Emma Willard stated: "In observing the United States, there is much to convince us, that an Almighty, Overruling Providence, designed from the first, to place here a great, united people." In 1857, Emma Willard published a book for children titled, Morals for the Young: or, Good Principles Instilling Wisdom, in which she wrote: My Dear Children and Youth:- Since, then, wisdom teaches us to rate everything at its just value, it is wise to seek the favor and fear the frown of God, rather than to seek the favor,and fear the frown of men ... Look upon a Savior's cross ... ask pardon ... and the Holy Spirit's guidance ... receive the Christian's armor."

George and his brother Charles both joined Co. F 142nd PA Infantry.  
 
Pvt. Will was wounded in the ankle at the Battle of Fredericksburg on Dec 13, 1862 and was in the hospital for six months. After he was discharged from the hospital, he was transferred to Company D, 18th Regiment Veteran Reserve Corps on August 15, 1863. He was then discharged by General Order on June 29, 1865
 
After the end of the war, the Will family moved to Dixon, Lee County, IL. George stayed there farming with his father and brother until 1871 when he moved to Saunders County, NE. According to Past and Present of Saunders County Nebraska, Vol II , "He homesteaded eighty acres, to which he subsequently added a similar tract by buying railroad land and for forty-six years he concentrated his energies upon the operation of his farm, being assisted by his sons when they became old enough. As the years passed his capital increased and in 1907, feeling that he had accumulated a competence, he retired from active life."  George was also an active member of the Bob McCook G.A.R. Post in Ashland, NE. 
 
Will was married on July 1, 1869 in El Paso, IL to Frances Kurr, a native of Dixon, IL. The couple had four children, three of whom lived to adulthood.
 
George A. Will passed away in 1921 and is was laid to rest beside his wife in Cedar Hill Cemetery in Lancaster County, NE.

          Reverend's Preview: Somos = All for LGBTQ Movies      Cache   Translate Page      

 

The Spanish word somos means “all” in English, so it seems a fitting new title for the San Diego Latino Film Festival’s LGBTQ showcase. Formerly known as Cine Gay, this year’s event will run March 14th-24th at AMC Fashion Valley and Digital Gym CINEMA North Park.


Now in its 26th year, the festival annually screens more than 160 films from Latin America, Spain, the United States, Mexico and other parts of the world in celebration of Latino film, art and culture. Also featured are after parties, filmmaker workshops and guest celebrities from the hottest TV shows and feature films. The Somos showcase is made possible by the San Diego Pride Festival, the Media Arts Center, and Filmout San Diego.

“LGBTQ cinema is transcendent by nature, oftentimes forcing spectators to look beyond their own experiences and inviting them to engage, reconcile and ultimately relate to issues initially outside of their understanding,” according to Moises Esparza, the festival’s curator. “It is our pleasure to continue our annual tradition of bringing the very best of LGBTQ Latino cinema” to San Diego.

Though primarily reflective of Latino/Latina experiences and locations, the themes of the various movies to be shown are universal. Screenings will be hosted by local drag superstar Franceska. Individual tickets and full festival passes can be purchased in advance here. One can also become a member of this non-profit organization and enjoy special perks here.

A fabulous LGBTQ Short Film Showcase will be presented on Sunday, March 17th at 3:30pm. These mini-movies will include: Broken Sunflower Hearts, Estigma, Infinite While It Lasts, Neither From Here, Nor There, Oasis, The Serenade and The night, unsheltered.

Feature films to be screened are:



Eva + Candela (from Colombia)
The professional ambition of two strong, independent women brings them together but it is also what ultimately pulls them apart. We witness their intense love transform amidst stages of infatuation, sensuality, love, comfort and, finally, routine.


Claudia tocada por la luna (Claudia touched by the moon) (Chile)
Having suffered discrimination throughout her life, Claudia, a trans-Chilean midwife, remembers the hardest and most difficult moments she had to face in order to live her identity. This documentary tells the history, struggle, and constant abuses that are part of a society that still excludes those it considers different.


Tinta Bruta (Hard Paint) (Brazil)
Set in Brazil’s southern city of Porto Alegre, the film focuses on a socially-repressed young man who only comes out of his shell during chatroom performances, when he strips and smears neon paints on his lithe body.


José (Guatemala)
The title character is 19 and lives with his mother in Guatemala, one of the world's most dangerous, religious, impoverished, and socially conservative countries. He spends his days on cramped buses and fighting traffic as he runs food to drivers. When he meets Luis, a migrant from the rural Caribbean coast, they pursue an unexpected and forbidden relationship that thrusts José into an unexpectedly passionate and self-reflective period in his life.


Retablo (Peru/Norway/Germany)
Segundo Paucar, a 14 year old boy, wants to become a master story-box maker just like his father to carry on the family legacy. On his way to a community celebration in the Andes, Segundo accidentally observes his father in a situation that shatters his whole world. Trapped in a chauvinistic environment, Segundo will try to deal in silence with all that is happening to him.


Bixa Travesty (Brazil)
The female trans body becomes a political means of expression in both public and private space. The black, transgender singer Linn da Quebrada deconstructs how alpha males conceive of themselves. Kiko Goifman and Claudia Priscilla's documentary portrays a charismatic artist who reflects on gender and has an extraordinary stage presence.


Las herederas (The Heiresses) (Paraguay/Germany/Brazil/Uruguay/Norway/France)
Chela and Chiquita, both descendants of wealthy families, have been together for over 30 years. Recently, their financial situation has worsened, and Chiquita is imprisoned on fraud charges. Chela, forced to face a new reality, begins to provide a local taxi service to a group of elderly, wealthy ladies for money. As she settles into her new life, Chela encounters the much younger Angy, forging a fresh and invigorating new connection. This drama was Paraguay’s submission to this year's Oscars.


Las Chuntá (The Chunta) (Mexico)
Once a year in a small town in Mexico, men transform into women and become the Chuntá. This documentary follows two gender-bending gangs of dancers as they face off in a struggle between queer identity and powerful traditions.

The San Diego Latino Film Festival will be presented from March 14th to the 24th. Click here for more information.

J/122 sailing Caribbean
J/122 and J/105s Collect Lots of Silverware!
(Simpson Bay, St. Maarten)- The 37-square-mile island of St. Maarten was first settled by the Arawaks and was discovered by Christopher Columbus on behalf of Spain in 1493. Columbus sighted the island on November 11th, the holy day of St. Martin of Tours, and so named the island after him. For the next 150 years the island was passed between Holland, England, France and Spain. The old stone forts that guard many of the island’s inlets are proof of the island’s turbulent past. In 1648, St. Maarten was peacefully divided between The Netherlands and France, and today is the smallest landmass in the world to be shared by two sovereign nations.

Continuing in the traditions of its seafaring heritage, the leadership on the island concluded they should invite yachtsmen from the Caribbean to enjoy their fun-loving approach to life and created the first St Maarten Regatta in 1980.  Now in its 39th year, the notion of having “Serious Fun” has evolved into the largest regatta on the winter Caribbean racing circuit- the wildly successful Heineken St. Maarten Regatta, sailed off Simpson Bay.
J/122 sailing St Maarten Heineken Regatta
The 2019 edition may be remembered as the “best ever” by the 110 teams and 1,500+ sailors; with simply amazing weather conditions all four days of the regatta from February 28th to March 3rd, Thursday to Sunday. All four days were marked by blazing sun, 10-20 kt tradewinds, 3-6 ft seas, and temperatures hovering in the low 80s.  Basically, postcard perfect, Chamber of Commerce sailing conditions.

Several J/Crews participated in this year’s event. The J/105s trounced their CSA 4 Racing class while the J/122s also pushed everyone hard in CSA 3 Racing class to collect more silverware for their trophy rooms! Following are the daily reports that outline the Serious Fun and hot racing action each day.
J/145 sailing off St Maarten in Caribbean
Day 1- Almost Perfect Sailing?
With near perfect conditions, the start of the regatta saw the fleet streaming out through the bridge in time for the race starts.  Boats set their sails as they headed towards the three separate start areas.  The wind, which had been fairly steady at 14 knots, piped up, sending some 20 knot gusts through the fleet, making for some white knuckle excitement amongst the crews.

In Marigot Bay, the ORC Performance fleet, along with the CSA classes 1, 2 and 3 had been set a windward-leeward course, which led to some extremely close competitive racing. A unique feature of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is that all classes finish at the Heineken mark, close to the famous lifting bridge into the lagoon and the Port de Plaisance Marina where the majority of the boats are moored.  By 3pm, the boats were lining up to get through the bridge, with the customary celebrations, dancing and fancy dress to entertain the crowds, many with a welcome cold Heineken in hand!

After recuperating from the RORC Caribbean 600 Race, the J/145 KATARA, skippered by Roger Gatewood from St Petersburg, FL, managed a solid performance on the opening day in the seven-boat CSA 2 Racing class.  His largely Tampa Bay crew pulled off a 3rd and 4th to be sitting in third place.

Similarly, Pam Baldwin’s J/122 LIQUID from Antigua started off somewhat emphatically with a bullet in their first race of the eight-boat CSA 3 Racing class.  That opening gambit was followed up by a 4th in race two to close the day sitting in third position on the podium sitting just one point from first place.

The largest class in the regatta was the fifteen-boat CSA 4 Racing class.  Having such a large group of boats that ranged from 30 to 44 feet on the starting line made for some interesting (and harrowing) moments.  Reveling in the conditions was the classic J/30 BLUE PETER/ CARIBBEAN ALLIANCE INSURANCE, skippered by the Antiguan duo of Tanner & Shari; their 2-2 for just 4 pts. However, their points total was matched by the Barbados team on the J/105 WHISTLER, skippered by Peter Lewis; technically leading their fleet with a 3-1 for 4 pts, too.

Perhaps the craziest scenario that one could imagine took place on Jordan Mindich’s J/105 SOLSTICE. After rounding the weather mark in 1st place boat-for-boat in the fleet, they set the spinnaker, started to plane down a few waves, then lost their steering. Consequently, after spinning out, broaching, and getting the spinnaker down, they discovered their steering cable broke.  A quick “fix” was to insert the aluminum emergency tiller in place at the top of the rudder shaft and keep racing!  Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to steer a J/105 with a 3 foot tiller on a poorly-balanced rudder in big seas and big breeze. SOLSTICE salvaged a 7th in the first race and, still sailing with the short tiller, could only manage an 8th in the second race when the winds were blowing into the low 20's.

Day 2- Best’est Day Ever?
Amazing, best day ever, champagne sailing, and wow, just wow, what a day! Those were just some of the words that were used to describe Friday’s Round the Island Race.  For some it was serious sailing, and for others “Serious Fun”; but every sailor coming ashore after this epic race had a different story to tell, an unforgettable experience to recount, and a memory to savor forever.

The Round the Island Race is one of the highlights of the four-day event.  For many, this race offers the first time to see the whole island from the unique perspective of the sea.  For those who have sailed the regatta many times before, they know the excitement of a reaching start, the long beat up the channel between St. Maarten and Anguilla, and the challenges of the big Atlantic swell and choppy seas past Pelikan Rocks at the far eastern end of the island before the final 6.0nm leg to the Heineken finish line off Simpson Bay.

It’s a game of catch up, with the slowest boats starting first, while the super-fast Maxis and Ocean Racing class start last.  With at least 25 nautical miles ahead, not counting the extra distance required as boats zig-zag up the beat, for many boats it was going to be an exhilarating, action packed ride, while for others it was a chance to relax, enjoy the sights and top up the tan.

Peter Lewis and his crew on the J/105 WHISTLER won CSA Class 4. “We got the best start, sped off, and never saw the others in our fleet again,” said Lewis.  Nevertheless, Lewis was chased hard by the re-energized team on the J/105 SOLSTICE; Mindich’s crew produced a great performance, taking 2nd place for a J/105 sweep of the top two spots, finishing just 1 min 52 sec behind.

Meanwhile, the J/122s loved the Round Island Race, with Baldwin’s LIQUID taking third place to hang onto their 3rd position overall; they were a scant 4 sec back on corrected time from second place!  Their stablemate, the J/122 EL OCASO sailed by TEAM SLOVAKIA also sailed fast to take fourth place just 45 secs behind on corrected.

Gatewood’s gorgeous J/145 KATARA again won the race on elapsed in CSA 2 Racing class, but could only manage a 4th on corrected.  Despite soundly beating two XP44s and a First 47.7 by at least eight minutes elapsed, they could not correct out on handicap time over those boats optimized for the Caribbean circuit- all sailing with #3 jibs of 102% to 109% LPs.  Later, the KATARA crew would lament that not getting rated with their 135% #2 cost them the series, e.g. an easy win!
J/105 sailing Caribbean St Maarten Heineken Regatta
Day 3- More Gorgeous Weather- Hallelujah!
Saturday’s racing saw some exciting starts and closely fought first beats.  With a more easterly breeze, the fleet again enjoyed 10-20 kt winds and big seas all day.

The CSA 2, CSA 3 and CSA 4 fleets had two short races, setting off from Simpson Bay to beat up to a windward mark set just off Fort Willem.

In the CSA 2 Class, the “pecking order” was beginning to manifest itself and continue, coincidentally, for the last three races of the regatta.  Winning every race boat-for-boat by at least 9-10 minutes was Gatewood’s J/145 KATARA.  Having consigned themselves to on-the-water victory, the crew made the most of it and partied home to the Heineken finish line, collecting two more 4th places to end the day in 4th overall.

Loving the format for the two races and loving the conditions were the twin J/122s.  The first race was shorter and took an hour elapsed, while the second was at least twice as long and took around two hours to complete.  In the first race, the corrected time spread for the top four boats was a mere 54 secs. Taking third was Baldwin’s LIQUID with a time of 54:54, while just 2 secs back was TEAM SLOVAKIA’s EL CASO finishing with 54:56! In the second, much longer, race, Baldwin’s LIQUID team launched themselves into a big lead and never looked back, winning the race by nearly 2 minutes corrected time.  That result put them into third overall with just one race left.  TEAM SLOVAKIA EL OCASO missed third by just 6 secs; they could be seen later mumbling in their Heineken pints about how they had left at least 30 secs on the race track due to boathandling errors!

In CSA 4 Class, there was a significant reshuffling of the leaderboard after two boats sailed the wrong course, most notably the regatta leader, the J/105 WHISTLER.  Sailing “lights out” was Mindich’s J/105 SOLSTICE, winning both races to vault up the ladder to second overall.  Lewis’ WHISTLER was DSQ’d in the 5th race for rounding the wrong mark.

Day 4- Thrilling, Sparkling Finale!
On Sunday, the competitors were again greeted with the unforgettable memory of sparkling azure blue seas, sandy white beaches and windswept ragged rocks.

For the final day’s racing, Race Director Paul Miller and his team devised a format that would create a wall of sails as the boats streamed downwind to the Heineken finish marks.  Using two different start areas, the slower boats set off first, with all the boats sailing to the same first windward mark, before heading different course lengths along the south coast and for the faster, classes, up the east coast of St. Maarten, then turning back past Pelikan Rocks on a long spinnaker leg to the finish.

“We set courses of differing lengths, which will get as many boats as possible spinnaker sailing together back towards the finish, creating an amazing and memorable visual image of boats heading back towards the airport and bridge,” said Paul Miller.

For many classes, this final race would prove crucial to the overall results.  For some, their results had already ensured a place on the podium.  With the 15-18 knot trade winds, nearly all the boats chose to close tack up the shore, with the shifting wind and choppy seas approaching the famous Pointe Blanche, providing plenty of opportunities to win or lose places.
Super yachts at J/Boats regatta
CSA 4 class was won by Lewis’ J/105 WHISTLER who took the bullet in the final race to win the class overall. The skipper on SOLSTICE, Jordan Mindich commented, “it was a fun race against Peter’s team on WHISTLER. We rounded the Heineken Gate in the lead, expecting to win the final race, but a few crew errors on our part, and one last huge surf down a wave right at the finish by WHISTLER gave them the win by just 2 sec corrected. Congratulations to them, it was a well-deserved win overall.”

At the prize giving, Lewis’ WHISTLER was presented with the “Most Worthy Performance Overall” Trophy by the Minister of Tourism- Stuart Johnson.  Needless to say, the WHISTLER crew was jubilant, as it was the first time ever to win the honor.

In a similar fashion, CSA 3 Racing class had a very tense final race for the top three leading boats. Baldwin’s J/122 LIQUID again stomped, crushing their class with an emphatic boat-for-boat win by 3 min 30 sec, believing they had won the final race as they savored their beers after the finish. However, that huge margin on elapsed time was not enough, as they later discovered they took second place by a mere 4 sec on corrected time.  A bit frustrated they were! However, to add to their thrilling, anxious finale, that meant they were tied on points at 10 each with Scarlet Oyster; but won the tie-breaker to take the silver!

Meanwhile, Gatewood’s J/145 KATARA again won their class by over 4 min elapsed and, yet again, settled for fourth place to take fourth for the regatta in CSA 2 Racing class.

The Heineken St. Maarten Regatta delivered on its promise of four days of serious sailing, with upwind legs dousing the crews hiking on the rails with warm water from the waves breaking over them.  Spectacular champagne sailing with roller coaster downwind legs, with a myriad of colorful spinnaker kites flying in the trade winds.

For the sailors, the adrenalin of achieving the perfect start, the tension of getting the tactics right, the physical challenges of racing to the max, and the relief and jubilation as the boat crossed the famous Heineken finish line were all part of the serious sailing experience.

And, as the crew celebrated their day on the water, there was the fun of the boats jostling to get through the lifting bridge, with music, on-board dancing, outrageous dressing up, with the cheers and dousing from water pistols aimed at the boats from the crowds observing the procession from the Sint Maarten Yacht Club.  In the lagoon’s marinas, the crews cracked open ice cold Heineken and relaxed in the sun, chatted over the day’s activities before getting ready for the final night of Serious Fun.

Crews, families and friends savored the tasty offerings from local restaurants in the regatta village, sharing the banter with old friends and new, before the Regatta Village turned, yet again, into the best festival venue ever, with the massive stage set up for an outstanding line up of artists playing serious funk, Caribbean jam, hip hop to reggae, and the final night’s legendary sets from Shermanology, Orange Grove and The Jacksons.

It’s the combined mass of all these elements that make the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta a unique event attracting more than 1,500 sailors from 22 countries.  The event has seen widespread praise, enthusiasm and overwhelming support for everyone involved, especially in the wake of recovery from the devastation incurred by Hurricane Irma.  The most frequently used phrases heard from sailors during the week included, “a great day sailing”, “it’s the best”, “awesome” and “we’ve had an amazing time”.  In other words, “Serious Fun”!   Sailing photo credits- SaltyColours/ Laurens Morel

          Quando la radio si trasforma in un sito internet      Cache   Translate Page      
Il 13 marzo 1999, un nuovo sito ha fatto il suo debutto sul web: swissinfo.org (oggi swissinfo.ch). La piattaforma d’informazione per l’estero ha preso rapidamente il posto di Radio Svizzera Internazionale, la cui voce è stata spenta pochi anni dopo. Ricordi.  Dieci anni dopo la fine della Guerra Fredda, le radio internazionali avevano perso parte della loro ragione d'essere. In Svizzera, la Confederazione, che forniva il 50% del budget di Radio Svizzera Internazionale (RSI), minaccia di ridurre i finanziamenti. La SSR (Società svizzera di radiotelevisione) non vede alcun motivo per mantenere questa unità aziendale con quasi 200 persone, che costa 20 milioni di franchi all'anno. Per ridurre i costi, governo e SSR decidono così di porre fine all’era radiofonica e di proporre notizie e approfondimenti sulla Svizzera via internet, che si preannuncia allora come il mezzo d’informazione del futuro. Dal suo lancio nel 1999, swissinfo è disponibile in tedesco, francese, inglese e ...

          Algeria, l'ultima mossa di Bouteflika non convince la piazza: "Una vittoria parziale"      Cache   Translate Page      

La piazza non smobilita. La piazza non si fida. "Una vittoria parziale "," una vittoria persa ". La dichiarazione di Bouteflika secondo cui non sarebbe candidato alla rielezione e che le prossime elezioni presidenziali in Algeria il 18 aprile saranno rinviate ad una data ancora sconosciuta, ha suscitato sentimenti contrastanti. Una parte del movimento di protesta lo hanno salutato come una vittoria, ma altri hanno espresso il timore che il ritardo del voto possa essere un tentativo di Bouteflika e del sistema di potere che lo sorregge di prolungare la sua presidenza prolungando il suo mandato. La presidenza algerina ha affermato che verrà fissata una nuova data per l'elezione durante una convention nazionale. Fino ad allora, Bouteflika dovrebbe rimanere al potere ben oltre il 28 aprile, quando il suo mandato terminerà. Si prevede anche che una nuova costituzione sia presentata al pubblico per un referendum.

"Gli algerini sono scettici, stanno aspettando di digerire queste informazioni", afferma Meriem Amellal, nota giornalista franco-algerina di France 24. "Da un lato è una vittoria, perché c'era una risposta del governo, e la rinuncia a un quinto mandato era una delle richieste del movimento. Ma queste richieste si sono evolute e ora la gente chiede una revisione del sistema". Ma questa prospettiva sembra altamente improbabile. E la piazza reagisce. Non si placano le proteste iniziate il 22 febbraio scorso. Sotto accusa c'è il "messaggio alla Nazione" con il quale l'anziano presidente, al potere dal 1999, ha annunciato di rinunciare alla quinta candidatura presidenziale e di sospendere le elezioni. Una sorta di proroga sine die che non ha placato la protesta. Anzi, ha avuto l'effetto opposto. Secondo il portale di notizie Tsa è in corso una "importante marcia" a Bejaia e una manifestazione "festosa" a Constantina, con la partecipazione di tanti studenti e anche dell'artista Kamel Bouda. Testimoni citati dall'agenzia Dpa riferiscono di manifestazioni a Orano, Skikda e Bordj Bou. "No al mandato 4.75" recitano i cartelli dei manifestanti nel centro della capitale Algeri, intendendo che la proposta del presidente uscente punterebbe ad aprirgli la strada a un quinto mandato "parziale".

L'idea del presidente lascia molte domande aperte: non ha indicato nessuna data alternativa alle elezioni presidenziali e, promettendo un rimpasto di governo, fa sorgere il dubbio che non intenda lasciare l'autorevole carica. Dopo il suo annuncio a sorpresa, Bouteflika ha varato un nuovo gabinetto con il ministro dell'Interno Noureddine Bedoui che sostituisce Ahmed Ouyahia come nuovo primo ministro algerino. Nel frattempo, l'ex ministro degli Esteri Ramtane Lamamra è stato nominato nuovo vice primo ministro. "Una gigantesca manipolazione": così alcuni dei leader dell'opposizione hanno respinto il rimpasto del governo , giudicandolo come un modo per mantenere lo status quo. "Noureddine Bedoui fa parte del sistema da anni. È diventato amico intimo del fratello del presidente, Nacer Bouteflika, mentre era al governo tra il 2014 e il 2015 ", dice ad HuffPost Samir Yahiaoui, uno dei leader del movimento Ibtykar pro-democrazia. "La famiglia Bouteflika sta manovrando per l'ennesima volta. Ci dicono che è una rinuncia, ma è un prolungamento ... La famiglia del presidente vuole un altro anno per mettere al potere uno dei suoi ", ha aggiunto. agli occhi delle opposizioni e del popolo sceso in piazza nelle ultime settimane per protestare contro il presidente e l'esercito che lo ha sostenuto negli ultimi 20 anni, il passo indietro di Bouteflika è piuttosto un passo di lato. Perché le elezioni in programma nel 2019, come spiegato dallo stesso presidente, si terranno "nel prolungamento" di una Conferenza nazionale per la riforma politica e costituzionale, che dovrebbe terminare i lavori entro la fine dell'anno.

"Il nuovo presidente sarà liberamente eletto, la Conferenza stabilirà la data delle nuove elezioni e io non sarò candidato", ha affermato Bouteflika in un messaggio al Paese, sottolineando che il "progetto di Costituzione sarà sottoposto a referendum popolare". A convincere il rais a farsi da parte è stato lo stesso esercito. Parlando agli studenti delle scuole militari, il capo di Stato maggiore delle forze armate - e viceministro della Difesa - Ahmed Ghaid Salah ha detto di condividere "le stesse aspirazioni e valori del popolo per una visione comune del futuro" del Paese. Dopo un mese di manifestazioni, insomma, le decine di migliaia di algerini scese in piazza per chiedere un cambiamento possono esultare. Ma le opposizioni sono spaccate. Subito dopo l'annuncio di Bouteflika di rinunciare al quinto mandato e rinviare all'anno prossimo le elezioni presidenziali, il leader del partito islamico dell'Unione per la giustizia e la costruzione, Hassan Aribi, ha parlato di "una vittoria per la nazione". Meno entusiasta Djilali Djadid, presidente del partito Djilid: "È la prima vittoria del popolo". Ma non basta. Il popolo algerino, secondo Djadid, deve "occupare le strade e uscire il prossimo venerdì, al fine di raggiungere gli obiettivi del movimento popolare". Ovvero la destituzione di Bouteflika e del gruppo di potere che lo appoggia ormai dal 1999. La strada è ancora in salita. Difficilmente l'apparato al potere, definito dagli algerini "le Pouvoir", o le "Systeme", rinuncerà a mantenere le redini del Paese. I "gattopardi di Algeri" faranno in modo che tutto cambi affinché nulla cambi.

Ora tutti si attendono le contromosse del "Sistema". Questa ristretta cerchia, di cui l'esercito è parte imprescindibile, da dietro le quinte tiene le redini del Paese da almeno 20 anni, controllando la ricchissima industria degli idrocarburi. Al suo vertice vi sono ancora gli eroi – oggi ottuagenari - della guerra di liberazione contro la Francia (1945-1962) costata la vita a un milione di algerini. Bouteflika stesso ma anche il capo di stato maggiore delle forze armate, il generale Gaia Salah. Lui non ci ha pensato due volte. Davanti a queste manifestazioni di massa non aveva esitato ad agitare lo spettro della guerra al terrorismo. Uno spettro finora capace di paralizzare una popolazione non ancora guarita da un violentissimo trauma collettivo. Non questa volta. Negativo il giudizio del Raggruppamento della cultura e della democrazia (Rcd): "Bouteflika viola la Costituzione per un'altra volta, perché il mandato del presidente può essere esteso solo in un caso: lo stato di guerra", ha scritto il deputato Atmane Mazouz sulla sua pagina Facebook. Reazioni che non hanno intaccato l'ottimismo che filtra dalle parole dei nuovi membri dell'esecutivo fresco di rimpasto.

"Credo che insieme costruiremo il futuro", ha detto il neo vicepremier Ramtane Lamamra, anche lui nominato da Bouteflika. Parlando con Radio France Internationale, Lamamra ha promesso che le prossime elezioni saranno "assolutamente libere. È la prima vera svolta dall'indipendenza del 1962. Mettiamoci in testa a questa responsabilità storica". "Siamo pronti a far votare un'amnistia che consenta a Bouteflika di uscire dalla porta, ma non accetteremo compromessi al ribasso", ribadisce l'oppositore Rachid Nekkaz. Critiche anche dall'ex premier algerino e leader del partito Talaie El Hurriyet, Ali Benflis: "L'Algeria – denuncia Benflis - ha conosciuto e vive un'aggressione contro la Costituzione attraverso l'annuncio di una proroga del quarto mandato che è stato il mandato delle forze non costituzionali. Queste forze non costituzionali continueranno a dominare le decisioni politiche senza l'autorizzazione del popolo". Oggi, il principale quotidiano algerino, El Watan, ha pubblicato una prima pagina dal titolo "L'ultimo trucco di Bouteflika", interpretando la frustrazione provata da così tante persone nel Paese. Ali Dilem, uno dei vignettisti più famosi e corrosivi di Algeria, ha pubblicato un post bruciante su Twitter sulla situazione. Sotto il titolo "Bouteflika rinuncia a un quinto mandato quinquennale", un disegno dell'anziano e malato leader dice: "Invece, farò un quarto di dieci anni".

Tuttavia, sono state sollevate domande sulla costituzionalità dell'estensione del mandato presidenziale di Bouteflika."Secondo diversi avvocati algerini, questa mossa è illegale. Non possiamo emendare la costituzione senza una ragione ", rimarca Amellal. Molti algerini hanno risposto all'annuncio di Bouteflika chiedendo un quarto venerdì consecutivo di proteste questa settimana. "No, non puoi ingannare la gente. Ci vediamo il 15 marzo", si legge in un messaggio che circola sui social media da lunedì sera. "In Algeria – osserva Bernard Guetta su Internazionale- nessuno ha ancora vinto o perduto. Sottoposto a una pressione popolare contro cui non poteva granché, il governo ha fatto qualche concessione rinunciando alla farsa di un'elezione la cui falsità era sempre più insopportabile. Non si tratta di una piccola concessione e segna un cambiamento nei rapporti di forze favorevole alla piazza, ma nel frattempo è evidente che i dirigenti algerini non hanno alcuna intenzione di rinunciare alla loro rendita e cercano di guadagnare tempo. I manifestanti hanno segnato un punto a loro favore ma il potere arretra solo per consolidare meglio le proprie posizioni.

Non è la fine della partita, ma solo l'inizio. In ogni modo complimenti a questo popolo per essere riuscito a imporsi con la sua maturità politica e complimenti agli uomini al potere per aver scelto di prendere tempo anziché sparare". "Sono ottimista, si intravedono all'orizzonte le premesse per una nuova era costruttiva che porti soluzioni ai nostri problemi" ha dichiarato stamattina alle tv locali l'ex ministro degli Esteri e inviato dell'Onu Lakhdar Brahimi, ricevuto ieri sera dal presidente Bouteflika e, secondo indiscrezioni, proposto "per la guida della commissione che dovrà preparare una conferenza nazionale". Ma l'ottimismo è atteso dalla verifica dei fatti. La "primavera algerina" non è sfiorita.


          Noi, Greta Thunberg, Alex Langer e il bisogno di conoscenza e verità per un “futuro amico” del Pianeta e dell’umanità      Cache   Translate Page      

Anche noi della Flc Cgil, la Federazione dei lavoratori della conoscenza, saremo in piazza il prossimo 15 marzo, insieme con decine di milioni di ragazze e ragazzi di tutte le scuole del mondo che manifesteranno contro le scellerate politiche economiche e industriali che hanno avvelenato il pianeta Terra, l'hanno portato sull'orlo dell'autodistruzione, hanno generato centinaia di milioni di nuovi poveri assoluti, da est a ovest e da nord a sud del mondo, e hanno scavato fossati ormai giganteschi tra le élite privilegiate e miliardi di uomini e donne che soffrono per mancanza di cibo, carestie, inaridimento dei terreni, assenza di acqua.

Le manifestazioni del 15 marzo sono state invocate da un'adolescente svedese, Greta Thunberg, che da mesi staziona dinanzi al parlamento di Stoccolma con un cartello che evoca i pericoli per la Terra del cambiamento climatico, dopo che la sua terra aveva vissuto l'estate in assoluto più calda degli ultimi 262 anni. Ma è l'interrogativo che Greta lancia al mondo intero, ai potenti, che ci obbliga a riflettere sulla sua battaglia, che ora non è più solitaria, ed è accompagnata da decine di milioni di suoi coetanei.

L'interrogativo di Greta: perché impegnarsi a studiare tanto a scuola se poi i politici non prestano attenzione ai fatti? Interrogativo durissimo, di fronte al quale abbiamo il dovere di cercare risposte, a partire da coloro che nella scuola vivono, insegnano, imparano, operano. Qui, nella giusta domanda di Greta, è in gioco il senso stesso dell'apprendimento, che si trasforma in un'angosciante sfida per il futuro. Una sfida che toccherà alle nuove generazioni combattere, ma che impegna le generazioni precedenti a occuparsene come mai è stato fatto prima.

Greta ci convince che il destino dell'istruzione nel suo stesso significato di conoscere, sapere, e quello di intere generazioni sono connessi con il destino del pianeta Terra, col suo ecosistema, e coi danni prodotti da un modello di sviluppo basato sul profitto capitalistico a tutti i costi e non più sostenibile. E dunque, ecco le domande, dure come pietre, che Greta ci consegna:

"porto sempre con me i libri, ma poi mi chiedo: cosa sto smarrendo? Cosa imparerò a scuola? I fatti non interessano più a nessuno, e se i politici non ascoltano gli scienziati, che studio a fare?".

Questa consapevolezza che Greta ha manifestato ha poi contagiato segmenti larghissimi della popolazione studentesca in tutto il mondo, e ciò è davvero un bene, perché essi chiamano in causa coloro che hanno la responsabilità di rispondere, coi fatti, non solo a parole (come dimostrano i fallimenti dei recenti summit sull'ambiente).

E poi, quel richiamo agli scienziati non ascoltati, alla scienza, che potrebbero e dovrebbero svolgere un ruolo di guida per uscire dai pericoli in cui ci troviamo, non è anch'esso figlio e testimone di un tempo che ha smarrito totalmente la bussola di senso dello stare al mondo? Letteralmente.

Parole semplici, quelle di Greta, ma che richiamano alla mente la più grande sfida filosofica del Novecento: quella di restituire senso e dignità alla scienza di tradizione europea, in parte smarriti per effetto del dominio planetario di certo capitalismo. Ed è su questo crinale che va dunque letta in controluce la provocazione di Greta Thunberg.

A partire dalla più grande e perniciosa delle contraddizioni del capitalismo: il diritto alla salute e alla sostenibilità ambientale che contrasta in molti casi con il diritto al lavoro.

L'abbiamo vista all'opera in tanti casi, in questi anni, con l'ex Ilva di Taranto, per esempio, o con alcune cosiddette grandi opere, monumenti a un modello di sviluppo che non funziona più. Ha dunque ragione Carlo Petrini quando, in un articolo su La Stampa, dal titolo "Quei giovani in piazza con Greta", rimprovera alla sinistra di fare "fatica a svincolarsi da un discorso sviluppista legato a un modello stantio di produttivismo, fatto di grandi opere e di grandi player industriali".

Ma la si vede all'opera anche con la grande crisi che ha colpito l'edilizia – 600mila posti di lavoro persi proprio per effetto di una sciagurata assenza di strategie nuove e originali, come denunciano Cgil, Cisl e Uil nel lancio della manifestazione nazionale del 15 marzo, stessa giornata della protesta studentesca sul clima, e non a caso.

E la si vede all'opera in questi giorni con la crisi che ha colpito l'agricoltura per effetto del cambiamento climatico. I climatologi hanno avvertito che la crisi che ha colpito l'olivicoltura in Italia avrà come conseguenza l'abbattimento fino al 57% della produzione di olio di oliva, con effetti devastanti sull'economia del Paese, e del Mezzogiorno in particolare. E tutto ciò accade, secondo gli scienziati, perché la temperatura media del Mediterraneo si è alzata di 1,4 gradi centigradi e le precipitazioni sono crollate del 2,5%.

Come afferma al Guardian Riccardo Valentini, direttore del Centro Euro Mediterraneo per il cambiamento climatico, "tre o quattro giorni di caldo a 40 gradi in estate o 10 giorni senza pioggia in primavera sono più importanti di quello che accade in media ogni anno".

Da Greta e dalle nuove generazioni giunge un grido d'allarme, sugli effetti di un modello di sviluppo che porterà il pianeta alla sua distruzione. Ed è lo stesso grido di allarme che già papa Francesco aveva lanciato con l'enciclica "Laudato sì", unendo appunto il destino della "madre Terra" alla creazione di miliardi di poveri "migranti ecologici", costretti a spostarsi da un continente all'altro per sopravvivere.

Non v'è altra via d'uscita da questo destino, non inesorabile: cominciamo fin da oggi a mobilitarci con passione e convinzione (magari inducendo anche la sinistra a ripensare e a cancellare certe derive e decisioni "sviluppiste", rilanciate anche in questi giorni), come sindacato innanzitutto, insieme con le giovani generazioni per immaginare, elaborare, costruire un "futuro amico" del pianeta e dell'umanità, con un forte impegno nelle scuole, nelle università e nei centri di ricerca.

Ecco perché quando si affrontano questi temi torna alla mente Alex Langer, la sua poetica e visionaria lucidità, la sua capacità di inquadrare il presente e il futuro, anche alla luce del processo storico.

A dicembre del 1994, 25 anni fa, pochi mesi prima che decidesse di togliersi la vita, Langer volle consegnare il suo testamento culturale ai giovani che lo ascoltavano nella basilica di Assisi. Si tratta di un testo che per densità analitica, visione, capacità di pensiero lungo, andrebbe letto in tutte le scuole del mondo.

Il testo ha per titolo "Quattro consigli per un futuro amico". In sintesi, Langer disse a quei giovani nel 1994, ma lo direbbe anche oggi, magari con più forza, che in cima alla lista dei consigli per un futuro amico c'è "la credibilità delle parole" perché "è difficile distinguere la notizia dalla pubblicità, la realtà dalla fandonia, che se ripetuta autorevolmente e televisivamente diventa realtà essa stessa" .

Il discorso di Langer terminò con queste parole, che qui riporto integralmente, per la bellezza inossidabile di quel pensatore:

"Dall'antichità ci viene il motto citius, più veloce, altius, più alto, fortius, più forte, più possente. Citius altius e fortius era un motto giocoso di per sé, era un motto appunto per le Olimpiadi che erano certo competitive, ma erano in qualche modo un gioco. Oggi queste tre parole potrebbero essere assunte bene come quinta essenza della nostra civiltà e della competizione della nostra civiltà: sforzatevi di essere più veloci, di arrivare più in alto e di essere più forti. Questo è un po' il messaggio cardine che oggi ci viene dato. Io vi propongo il contrario, io vi propongo il lentius, profundius e soavius, cioè di capovolgere ognuno di questi termini, più lenti invece che più veloci, più in profondità, invece che più in alto e più dolcemente o più soavemente invece che più forte, con più energia, con più muscoli, insomma più roboanti. Con questo motto non si vince nessuna battaglia frontale, però forse si ha il fiato più lungo".

Già, il fiato lungo dell'amicizia, con la Terra e con l'umanità: questo è il vero segreto del futuro amico.


          Benvenuti nella Germania post-merkeliana      Cache   Translate Page      

Dal dicembre scorso la nuova leader dei cristiano-democratici tedeschi si chiama Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. Meglio nota come AKK. È lei l'erede di Angela Merkel che dopo i recenti insuccessi elettorali ha deciso di cedere la guida del partito (CDU). Pur restando cancelliera, l'inizio della fine dell'era Merkel è già iniziata.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, anche se ancora non ricopre alcun incarico di governo, ha già mostrato un'evidente diversità rispetto al suo predecessore. Già nota per essere una conservatrice non ha deluso le attese. Prima ha criticato la politica delle porte aperte della Cancelliera in tema di immigrazione e si è contrapposta alle proposte dei socialdemocratici per una riforma delle controverse politiche sociali note come Hartz IV (reddito di cittadinanza).

Poi, successivamente, in occasione dei consueti spettacoli dei politici tedeschi per il Carnevale, ha manifestato un'evidente nostalgia per un certo machismo di tradizione e si è presentata travestita da donna delle pulizie. Insomma, ha voluto parlare, in forme e contesti molto diversi tra loro, all'elettorato conservatore della CDU che negli ultimi anni era stato un po' trascurato dalle politiche moderniste di Angela Merkel.

Fino ad ora si era limitata a interventi calibrati sulla politica interna. Tuttavia, alla lettera con cui il presidente francese Emmanuel Macron ha proposto un rinascimento europeo, AKK ha risposto con un lungo articolo sulla Welt am Sonntag (l'edizione domenicale della Welt). A molti non è piaciuto. Prima di tutto agli alleati della SPD e ai partiti di opposizione Verdi e liberali, ma anche in Italia non sono mancate critiche.

AKK, pur dicendo di essere d'accordo con il Presidente francese nel sostenere l'importanza di rafforzare l'Europa, ha voluto stabilire modalità e priorità molto diverse. Le parole chiave sono principio di sussidiarietà (=potere agli Stati membri) e auto-responsabilizzazione.

Per AKK sarebbe sbagliata qualunque forma di "centralismo europeo, statalismo europeo, comunitarizzazione dei debiti, europeizzazione dei sistemi sociali e del salario minimo". L'unica strada percorribile è quella della "convergenza in termini di pari condizioni di vita all'interno degli Stati membri e tra gli Stati membri".

Il colpo di grazia all'europeismo macroniano AKK lo dà quando afferma che

"nessun superstato europeo soddisfa l'obiettivo di un'Europa in grado di agire. Il lavoro delle istituzioni europee non può rivendicare la superiorità morale nei riguardi della cooperazione dei governi nazionali".

Sovranità europea, adieu!

L'Unione europea di AKK resta (ancora) intergovernativa, non prevede alcuna forma di condivisione del debito ed è totalmente incentrata sul ruolo fondamentale degli Stati nazionali che "fondano la legittimazione democratica europea e l'identificazione con il progetto europeo. Soltanto gli Stati nazionali formulano e riconciliano il loro interesse a livello europeo".

La nuova leader conservatrice tedesca non lascia alcuno spiraglio per un'Europa che non sia una sommatoria di Stati nazionali. L'intervento di AKK sorprende solo chi non conosce a fondo la politica tedesca.

Già nei giorni scorsi non erano mancate critiche alle proposte di Macron sui principali media tedeschi sia sul contenuto sia sulla metodo. In realtà, la reazione dei conservatori tedeschi era scontata e prevedibile. Dopo le elezioni federali e regionali del 2017-2018 e la graduale uscita di scena di Angela Merkel sta emergendo il carattere più autentico (e maggioritario) dei cristiano-democratici che Merkel era riuscita per anni a frenare mediando tra le diverse anime del partito.

Pur non venendo mai messa in discussione la vocazione europea della Repubblica Federale tedesca, il modo in cui la Germania post-merkeliana guarderà all'Europa sarà molto diverso. Se a Merkel i critici rimproveravano di essere scarsamente europea, con AKK scopriranno una Germania che metterà sempre il proprio interesse nazionale al primo posto.

Il nuovo equilibrio politico tedesco emerso nell'ultimo anno e mezzo ha aperto una fase nuova. La Grande coalizione che è stato il filo conduttore dell'era Merkel, oggi deve confrontarsi con un contesto inedito: una maggioranza ben più risicata rispetto al passato e una quadruplice opposizione (AfD, Liberali, Linke e Verdi). Al contesto nazionale si sono poi aggiunte le elezioni regionali in Baviera e in Assia che hanno definitivamente cambiato i vertici dei cristiano-democratici e dei cristiano sociali. A Merkel (CDU) e Seehofer (CSU) sono succeduti Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (CDU) e Markus Söder (CSU).

Se già Merkel recepì con timidezza le proposte di Macron formulate nel famoso discorso alla Sorbona, oggi i vertici politici della Germania sembrano ancora più cauti. Si guarda esclusivamente all'interesse nazionale tedesco, considerato ormai una priorità assoluta.

L'obiettivo primario resta infatti di interrompere l'emorragia di voti a destra (Afd) ristabilendo la tradizionale contrapposizione, anche in un contesto di grande coalizione, con i socialdemocratici e tornando su posizioni autenticamente conservatrici. E questo non riguarderà soltanto i temi legati ai diritti civili, ma anche alla costruzione dell'Unione Europea e al futuro in cui per i Paesi più deboli, e che non intendono rispettare le regole e i patti europei, sarà sempre più difficile trovare una sponda a Berlino.

Se negli anni della grande crisi si guardava a Schäuble e Merkel come a due inflessibili teutonici custodi dell'ordine costituito, dimenticando il grande spirito europeista incarnato dall'ex ministro delle Finanze e le grandi opere di mediazione della Cancelliera su diversi fronti di crisi, nei prossimi anni impareremo a conoscere una nuova classe dirigente tedesca ben più rigida e meno solidale ... e forse rimpiangeremo quella fredda, imperturbabile tenerezza di Angela Merkel.


          Arrestati presidente e ad della Blutec. La Procura: "Scomparsi 16 dei 21 milioni per riqualificare Termini Imerese"      Cache   Translate Page      

Scattano gli arresti domiciliari per Roberto Ginatta e Cosimo di Cursi, rispettivamente presidente del consiglio di amministrazione e amministratore delegato della Blutec, la società che ha rilevato, e doveva riconvertire, l'ex stabilimento Fiat di Termini Imerese. L'accusa è di malversazione ai danni dello Stato. Contestualmente, è stato emesso un decreto di sequestro preventivo dell'intero complesso aziendale e delle relative quote sociali, nonché delle disponibilità finanziarie, immobiliari e mobiliari riconducibili agli indagati fino all'importo di 16 milioni e 516 mila euro.

L'attività investigativa coordinata dalla Procura della Repubblica di Termini Imerese e condotta dal Nucleo di polizia economico-finanziaria della Guardia di Finanza di Palermo, riguarderebbe i finanziamenti statali, attraverso Invitalia, per la riapertura dello stabilimento, dove Blutec avrebbe dovuto produrre auto elettriche.

Il sostituto procuratore di Termini Imerese, Guido Schininà, che insieme al procuratore Ambrogio Cartosio ha condotto l'inchiesta in conferenza stampa ha detto: "Solo 5 milioni di euro, dei 21 erogati a Blutec, sono stati destinati allo scopo del programma di sviluppo finalizzato alla riconversione e riqualificazione del polo industriale di Termini Imerese. Gli altri 16 milioni di euro sono scomparsi".

Ad entrambi è stato contestato il reato di malversazione di fondi pubblici e nei loro confronti è stata disposta la misura del divieto per la durata di 12 mesi di esercitare "imprese e uffici direttivi delle persone giuridiche e delle imprese". L'operazione della Guardia di finanza ha portato al sequestro dell'intero complesso aziendale Blutec spa, oltre allo stabilimento di Termini Imerese, e di beni per equivalente di oltre 16 milioni di euro. "Con quei 5 milioni sono stati acquistati macchinari - ha aggiunto il pm - ma non è stata rilanciata l'attività industriale".

La Blutec ha stabilimenti in diverse parti d'Italia ed il provvedimento della Procura di Termini Imerese riguarda l'intero gruppo e le quote societarie. La società, costituita nel 2014, ha sede a Pescara e un altro stabilimento si trova nel torinese.

"Da domani sarà un amministratore giudiziario a occuparsi della società", ha sottolineato il comandante del nucleo di polizia Economico-finanziaria delle Fiamme gialle di Palermo, colonnello Cosmo Virgilio - Abbiamo accertato che ci sono stati movimenti finanziari dopo l'accredito delle somme da parte di Invitalia per lo stabilimento di Termini. Parte dei fondi ricevuti sono stati oggetto di speculazione finanziaria, hanno prodotto rendimenti poi girati nei conti di altre società del gruppo".

Di Cursi al momento si trova in Brasile, dove il gruppo della famiglia Ginatta dispone di un sito produttivo, ma l'avvocato difensore ha fatto sapere alla Procura che "l'indagato non ha alcuna intenzione di sottrarsi al provvedimento".

In una nota rilasciata dal ministero del Lavoro, Luigi di Maio ribadisce: "Gli arresti del management della Bluetec di Termini Imerese confermano alcune perplessità delle parti sui piani d' investimento. Non abbandoniamo i lavoratori che sono le vittime di questa storia. Dobbiamo prima di tutto metterli in sicurezza. Ho già dato mandato agli uffici del Ministero di contattare l'amministratore giudiziario per salvaguardare i livelli occupazionali".

A Roberto Ginetta e Cosimo Di Cursi è stata notificata anche una misura interdittiva, per la durata di 12 mesi, che riguarda il divieto di esercitare imprese e uffici direttivi delle persone giuridiche e delle imprese. Per la Fiom siciliana: "Il grande bluff è stato svelato. Il quadro si è chiuso".

Francesco Giunta, sindaco della città dichiara: "La notizia dell'arresto dei vertici di Blutec, dell'AD Cosimo Dicursi e del Presidente del CdA Roberto Ginatta, cade come una tegola sulla testa di un intera comunità. Seppur, nella consapevolezza delle difficoltà registrate nei mesi scorsi, in merito alla restituzione delle somme anticipate all'azienda da Invitalia, abbiamo sempre sperato che la vertenza Termini Imerese potesse trovare una soluzione favorevole per le migliaia di famiglie, coinvolte, loro malgrado, in un disastro sociale ed economico senza precedenti. Da tempo, la Procura della Repubblica presso il Trubunale di Termini Imerese indagava in merito alle modalità di utilizzo dei fondi pubblici da parte di Blutec. Questa ulteriore "involuzione" della vertenza, deve preoccuparci ma non scoraggiarci. Piuttosto, può essere l'occasione affinchè, grazie al lavoro della magistratura, possa, finalmente, chiarirsi, una delle pagine più tristi della storia recente di Termini Imerese e del suo comprensorio".


          Francia tiembla por Mbappé tras el regreso de Zidane al Madrid      Cache   Translate Page      

El regreso de Zinedine Zidane al banquillo del Real Madrid ha disparado los temores en Francia a que éste pueda ejercer su gran ascendiente sobre la estrella del Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) Kylian Mbappé para convencerle de que fiche por el club español.

Francia tiembla por Mbappé tras el regreso de Zidane al Madrid

Hace sólo dos días, el delantero francés anunció solemnemente en el programa Téléfoot del canal "TF1" que "es seguro" que la temporada que viene seguirá en el PSG.

Sin embargo, a esas horas su ídolo "Zizou" no era todavía entrenador del Madrid. La vuelta del francés al Santiago Bernabéu ha abierto las especulaciones en la prensa francesa acerca de una tentativa madridista por hacerse con quien aparece como el "crack" del futuro.

"Hazard y Mbappé, objetivos", titula el diario deportivo "L'Équipe" una de las piezas de la amplia cobertura que dedica desde su portada al "todopoderoso Zidane".

Para el rotativo, el entrenador ha obtenido garantías por parte del presidente Florentino Pérez de que podrá confeccionar su plantilla, y Mbappé es el elegido "para compensar el vacío dejado por Cristiano Ronaldo".

"L'Équipe" llega incluso a aventurar que "está escrito que Mbappé llegará algún día a la Casa Blanca, que le fascina desde la infancia", aunque ese momento, puntualiza, a priori todavía no ha llegado.

El diario generalista "Le Parisien", generalmente muy bien informado sobre las interioridades del club parisino, califica en un titular el regreso de Zidane como "Todo salvo una buena noticia para el PSG".

Sin embargo, este medio cree que el Madrid podría lanzar la red sobre Neymar más que sobre Mbappé, ya que a su juicio por ahora "nada hace presagiar la salida" del joven prodigio en dirección a España.

Recuerda que el brasileño es "un viejo sueño de Florentino Pérez" y que aquél "nunca ha puesto fin a los rumores que lo situaban en Madrid".

Al margen del atractivo que Zidane pueda ejercer sobre futuros fichajes, la prensa francesa se rinde al "vínculo de un entrenador con el club más grande del mundo", como escribe "L'Équipe" en su editorial.

Para "Le Monde", han sido decisivas las relaciones "casi filiales" que unen a Pérez y Zidane, quien guarda un sentimiento de fidelidad al club madridista muy por encima del que suele predominar en el mundo del fútbol. EFE

          Specs for a brand new Android phone you won’t be able to buy just leaked      Cache   Translate Page      
Huawei later this month will unveil the P30 series, which is likely to include three models just like its predecessor. The P30 Lite, P30, and P30 Pro will be the stars of a March 26th press conference that will take place in Paris, France, although the phone’s signature feature was already confirmed, and several leaks showed the purported design of the phone. A brand new leak from Taiwan, meanwhile, delivers details about the phones' specs. Two new Huawei handsets received NCC certification in Taiwan in February and March, including model number ELE-L29 and VOG-L29, 5GMobilePhone reports. These are believed to be the P30 and the P30 Pro, respectively. The documentation reveals the P30 will come in 6GB and 8GB RAM versions, with base storage starting at 128GB and going up to 256GB. Storage tiers should be similar for the P30 Pro as well, although it’ll only come with 8GB of RAM. Similar certifications from Indonesia have also been leaked, revealing three new Huawei model numbers, including the same ELE-L29 and VOG-L29 identifiers found in NCC documentation, as well as a MAR-LX2, which is believed to be the cheaper version of the P30 series -- the P30 Lite. The premium P30 models will likely feature Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor, which also powers the Mate 20 phones launched back in October 2018. The Lite model should get a mid-range processor. Huawei a few days ago confirmed that the P30 Pro will have a periscope camera module -- a first for the company. The camera should help Huawei deliver better zoom functionality, a feature the company teased previously. It’s unclear whether the periscope camera will also be available on the regular P30 model or on the Mate X foldable. Huawei did not reveal the camera specs of its foldable phone when it was revealed a couple of weeks ago.

Las 31 mejores películas de vampiros de la historia#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sus raíces se pierden en el origen de los tiempos, con leyendas de necrófagos y espectros devoradores de fuerza vital asolando Europa, y cuyos orígenes pueden rastrearse hasta las sirenas y lamias de la mitología clásica. La leyenda de los seres que dormían en ataúdes y se alimentaban de la energía de los vivos, con más o menos variantes, adquirió visos de auténtica histeria colectiva en algunas zonas de la Europa del este durante el siglo XVIII.

Pero no fue hasta finales de ese siglo, con la publicación de una serie de obras literarias con grandes rasgos en común, que no se dio forma a la figura del vampiro tal y como la conocemos hoy. El relato de 1819 'El vampiro' de John Polidori, 'Carmilla' de Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu en 1872, y la suma de ambos, 'Dracula' de Bram Stoker en 1897, configuraron al vampiro como una criatura maquiavélica y seductora, con elementos tanto de donjuán sobrenatural como de depredador de la noche.

Desde el 'Drácula' apócrifo del cine mudo 'Nosferatu' a las constantes reinvenciones del mito que continúan dejando secas nuestras pantallas, el vampiro nunca ha dejado de estar presente en el cine de terror. 'Drácula' es solo la punta del iceberg: vampiresas, chupasangres y príncipes de la oscuridad de todo tipo han poblado el cine durante más de un siglo. Para recordarlas hemos seleccionado las 31 películas de vampiros más notorias, para que mañana despiertes con dos pequeños orificios en el cuello.

Nosferatu (1922)

Dirección: F.W. Murnau

Reparto: Max Schreck, Alexander Granach, Gustav von Wangenheim, Greta Schröeder, GH Schnell, Ruth Landshoff

La primera película de vampiros vino también acompañada de polémica: era una adaptación no oficial de 'Drácula' de Bram Stoker. De hecho, para evitar problemas legales, palabras como "vampiro" habían desaparecido (sustituida por el magnífico término genérico "nosferatu"), y los nombres de los personajes cambiaron, pasando Drácula a llamarse Conde Orlock. Por supuesto, a la viuda de Stoker no le gustó un pelo, y emprendió una cruzada personal para eliminar todos los negativos de la faz de la Tierra, algo que no consiguió por los pelos gracias a los coleccionistas privados de celuloide.

En cualquier caso, la película es una obra maestra total del primer cine de terror, y una cima del expresionismo alemán junto a clásicos como 'El gabinete del Doctor Caligari' o 'El Golem'. Rebosante de lecturas esotéricas (Murnau y su productor eran estudiosos del ocultismo) y de imágenes tétricamente inmortales, es recordada sobre todo por la encarnación de Max Schreck como Orlock, un actor semidesconocido del que durante un tiempo se dudó de su existencia real, lo que inspiró el argumento de la magnífica 'La sombra del vampiro'.

Crítica en Espinof: Nosferatu

Drácula (1931)

Dirección: Tod Browning

Reparto: Bela Lugosi, Helen Chandler, David Manners, Dwight Frye, Edward Van Sloan, Herbert Bunston, Frances Dade, Joan Standing

Basada más en la popularísima obra de teatro inspirada en la novela de Stoker que en el propio libro, es una de las películas de vampiros más populares de la historia, pese a no ser una de las mejores, ni siquiera dentro del cine de de Tod Browning. Lo que sí resulta indiscutible es el extraño carisma de Bela Lugosi como vampiro seductor e hipnótico, dejando atrás el monstruoso aspecto del conde Orlock. La película le convirtió en una estrella casi por casualidad (el Drácula previsto inicialmente era Lon Chaney, que murió antes de comenzar el rodaje) y marcó irremisiblemente su carrera.

Sin embargo, 'Drácula' está muy afectada por sus orígenes teatrales y paradójicamente, discurre de forma más agarrotada que 'Nosferatu', con pocos escenarios y personajes esquemáticos que suman en uno solo varios de la fuente original. La versión con actores españoles dirigida por George Melford con Carlos Villarías haciendo de Drácula es muy superior, aunque la de Browning posee momentos maravillosamente icónicos, como la presencia de las tres novias o frases ya históricas como "Yo nunca bebo... vino".

Crítica en Espinof: Drácula

Drácula (Horror of Dracula, 1958)

Dirección: Terence Fisher

Reparto: Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Michael Gough, Melissa Stribling, Valerie Gaunt, Carol Marsh, Olga Dickie

Pese a que en su día llegó a considerarse una afrenta a la fuente literaria original por sus elevadísimas dosis de violencia y erotismo, nunca antes vistas en pantalla, lo cierto es que el primer Drácula de la Hammer, a diferencia de la también extraordinaria 'La maldición de Frankenstein' de 1957, que se distancia notoriamente de la novela de Mary Shelley, es la encarnación del vampiro de Stoker más fidedigna hasta ese momento. Sobre todo, gracias a la imponente presencia de Chritopher Lee, a la vez un monstruo seductor y un magnético gentleman.

Espléndidamente dirigida por Terence Fisher, con una puesta en escena que hacía que cada rincón del escenario, cada objeto y cada gesto rezumara extrañeza y horror puro, 'Drácula' reconvirtió de nuevo a los vampiros en monstruos, dejando atrás la galantería entre ataúdes. La Hammer rubricaría ocho secuelas directas de Drácula, algunas tan recomendabilísimas como esta primera entrega. Entre ellas cabe destacar 'Las novias de Drácula', 'Drácula, Príncipe de las Tinieblas', 'Los ritos satánicos de Drácula' o la sorprendentemente jugosa 'Drácula 73'

Crítica en Espinof: Drácula

Las novias de Drácula (The Brides of Dracula, 1960)

Dirección: Terence Fisher

Reparto: Peter Cushing, Yvonne Monlaur, David Peel, Martita Hunt, Freda Jackson, Miles Malleson, Andree Melly

Aunque todos recordemos a Christopher Lee como, posiblemente, el mejor Drácula de todos los tiempos, conviene tener claro que la Hammer le hincó el diente al terror vampírico con muchas otras películas del subgénero. Algunas de ellas tan interesantes como las protagonizadas por Lee, como ésta, dirigida también por Terence Fisher, de nuevo con Peter Cushing como Van Helsing, pero con un nuevo catador de sangre (generado, eso sí, por el propio Drácula en persona): el barón Meinster.

La película rebosa momentos impagables, desde la merecidamente mítica secuencia del molino formando una cruz con las aspas a todos los diálogos de la madre del barón, pasando por la fetida resurrección -impresionante para una película de 1960- de una de las novias. Los interesados en la mitología vampírica de la Hammer más allá del Drácula de Lee harán bien en sumergirse en todas las inspiradas por la 'Carmilla' de Le Fanu (menos sofisticadas visualmente que esta, pero muy jugosas, como 'La condesa Drácula' o 'Drácula y las mellizas') o la chifladura total de la Hammer tardía, como 'Capitán Kronos, cazador de vampiros' o 'Kung Fu contra los Siete vampiros de oro'

El último hombre sobre la Tierra (The Last Man on Earth, 1964)

Dirección: Sidney Salkow, Ubaldo Ragona

Reparto: Vincent Price, Franca Bettoia, Emma Danieli, Giacomo Rossi-Stuart, Christi Courtland

Aunque la novela original de Richard Matheson (aquí coadaptándola en el guión) es una de las grandes inspiraciones de 'La noche de los muertos vivientes' de George A. Romero, es sencillo identificar a las criaturas post-apocalípticas que han dejado el planeta hecho un solar con vampiros: descansan durante el día, horas que nuestro protagonista aprovecha para masacrarlos -una idea que después saquearía 'Vampiros de John Carpenter'-. El resto del tiempo, un Vincent Price de perfecta pose melancólica, se lamenta sobre su solitaria situación.

La película sería reformulada en una producción más ambiciosa y taquillera protagonizada por Will Smith en 2007, y que acentuaría el componente vampírico y monstruoso de los seres que deambulan por el planeta. Pero carece de la atmósfera oscura y minimalista que han acabado convirtiendo a esta película coproducida con Italia (ese enrarecido aire europeo le da buena parte de su encanto) en una extraña rareza del cine de vampiros.

El baile de los vampiros (The Fearless Vampire Killers, 1967)

Dirección: Roman Polanski

Reparto: Jack MacGowran, Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate, Alfie Bass, Ferdy Mayne, Jessie Robins, Iain Quarrier

Una singularísima comedia slapstick de ambiente vampírico, tan tontorrona como tronchante, que funciona y es recordada porque se toma muy en serio su parte terrorífica. Ésta, claramente inspirada en las entonces boyantes producciones de la Hammer, aún en su fase más clásica. Prácticamente muda, es también recordada por presentar uno de los escasos papeles coprotagonistas de Sharon Tate antes de ser asesinada por el clan Manson.

La película deja claro en todo momento que Polanski es un auténtico devoto del cine de terror y sus tropos, con su versión tronada de la primera y magistral mitad de la novela de 'Drácula' y la visita de Jonathan Harker al castillo del vampiro. Lo que también deja claro, y es una pena que Polanski no lo cultivara más a menudo, es que el humor blanco y visual (a años luz de la retorcida paranoia bufa de 'El quimérico inquilino') también se le daba francamente bien.

Crítica en Espinof: El baile de los vampiros

Las vampiras (Vampyros Lesbos, 1971)

Dirección: Jess Franco

Reparto: Soledad Miranda, Dennis Price, Victor Feldman, Ewa Stroemberg, Paul Muller, Jesús Franco, Heidrun Kussin

El inclasificable Jesús Franco volvió al mito vampírico una y otra vez a lo largo de su carrera: de la rara rigidez de 'El conde Drácula' a la chifladura de tebeo de 'Drácula contra Frankenstein', pasando por este exploit erótico que toma por asalto la cinefilia galopante de su responsable para subvertir los códigos del vampirismo lésbico que habían puesto de moda las producciones tardías de la Hammer, aunque apretando las tuercas de la explicitud visual.

Franco se salta los tópicos del cine vampírico que no le interesan (la siempre memorable Soledad Miranda es una vampira que toma el sol), hace suyos otros (solo bebe sangre de mujeres) y dinamita el resto, como todo lo que concierne al cazador de vampiros. Aquí el castillo es un chalet y la banda sonora no tiene órganos de iglesia tenebrosos, sino que está construida con un cálido e hipnótico jazz. Como todo Franco, único y particular, y aún así, una de las películas de eurohorror vampírico más notorias.

El rojo en los labios (Les lèvres rouges, 1971)

Dirección: Harry Kümel

Reparto: John Karlen, Delphine Seyrig, Danielle Ouimet, Andrea Rau, Paul Esser, Georges Janin, Joris Collet, Fons Rademakers

Una de las películas más singulares de toda la era del eurohorror de los setenta, en el momento álgido de la exitosa fórmula de la Hammer de saquear 'Carmilla' para adaptar el mito vampírico a los nuevos tiempos, así como en su replanteamiento por parte de productores españoles, franceses y alemanes a golpe de morbo, delirio onírico y erotismo desbocado. En este caso se recurre a la condesa Bathory y su sirvienta, alojadas en un hotel de Brujas a donde llega la pareja protagonista: él quiere presentar a su prometida a su madre.

Con los potenciómetros psicosexuales al once (o más), esta coproducción francobelga y alemana mezcla elementos de giallo y del cine de explotación de la época. Kümel (que pronto dirigiría su estupenda adaptación de 'Malpertius') configuró a su vampiresa (Delphine Seyrig) con elementos de actrices de cine clásico como Marlene Dietrich (y a la sirvienta como Louise Brooks). También le inyectó ciertos aires estéticos propios de los uniformes del nazismo, ya que con ese toque autoritario es como Kümel veía a los míticos chupadores de sangre.

Réquiem por un vampiro (Vierges et vampires, 1973)

Dirección: Jean Rollin

Reparto: Marie-Pierre Castel, Mireille Dargent, Philippe Gasté, Dominique, Louise Dhour, Michel Delesalle

Rollin, capaz de desatar odios furibundos y devoción sin límite, conforma una pieza imprescindible del sinuoso e hipererótico euro-horror de los setenta. Sus historias, cortadas en su mayoría por el mismo patrón de ninfas bebedoras de sangre, más inspiradas en 'Carmilla' que en 'Drácula', son variaciones levísimas a una misma idea que flota en un mundo en el que todo es estética, tules, niebla y castillos en descampados.

Podría haber traído a esta lista las también fabulosas 'La muerta viviente', 'El castillo de las vampiras', 'La violación de la vampira', 'La vampiresa desnuda' o 'El amanecer de los vampiros', pero me quedo con esta pieza extrañísima, prácticamente muda, que se adelanta al mismísimo Tarantino con su historia de dos atracadoras accidentadas que acaban dando tumbos por un castillo misterioso. Influída más que otras de sus películas por la nouvelle vague y por el cómic erótico europeo, 'Requiem por un vampiro' es Rollin puro, y como tal, tan discutible como fascinante.

Sangre para Drácula (Dracula cerca sangue di vergine... e morì di sete!!!, 1974)

Dirección: Paul Morrissey

Reparto: Joe Dallesandro, Udo Kier, Arno Juerging, Maxime McKendry, Milena Vukotic, Dominique Darel, Stefania Casini

Un rarísimo experimento producido por Andy Warhol rebosante de comedia bufa, drama folletinesco, erotismo mediterráneo y terror ultrasangriento cuyo argumento parece salido de una película de Jaimito: Drácula (Udo Kier) necesita vírgenes para alimentarse, y viaja hasta Italia ya que, siendo éste un país tradicionalmente católico, allí habrá más doncellas puras. Por supuesto, aunque divisa a unas cuantas víctimas, ninguna es tan virtuosa como aparenta.

El resultado de esta locura es inusualmente amargo, mucho más que la otra producción Warhol con la que conformó un programa doble delirante, la salvaje y mucho más exploit 'Carne para Frankenstein'. Kier le otorga al conde una melancolía única, atormentado porque los nuevos tiempos y la existencia de galanes como el interpretado por Joe Dallessandro (decidido a acabar con el vampirismo saltando de cama en cama) van a acabar con su vida eterna. Un tema muy propio de los Dráculas modernos (la decadencia del galán depredador clásico, completamente fuera de su tiempo), aquí en una versión más carnal y excesiva que nunca.

Las hijas de Drácula (Vampyres, 1974)

Dirección: José Ramón Larraz

Reparto: Marianne Morris, Anulka Dziubinska, Murray Brown, Brian Deacon, Sally Faulkner, Michael Byrne, Karl Lanchbury

Aunque su erotismo tramontano la ha convertido en una pieza algo caduca (al contrario que la monumental 'Los ritos sexuales del diablo', también de Larraz, aún más marrana pero tremendamente perversa), 'Las hijas de Drácula' sigue siendo una pieza clave del cine vampírico europeo de los setenta. Producida en Inglaterra, el buen pulso de Larraz (que rubricaba estas cosas igual que slashers como 'Descanse en piezas' o 'Al filo del hacha', por no hablar de cosas tan de su momento como 'Violación... ¿y?' o 'Polvos mágicos') y su valentía la hora de enhebrar una atmósfera casi de película de casas encantadas le dan un valor único.

En este caso, el argumento es más tradicional que el de otras películas de la época como 'El rojo en los labios': dos vampiresas provocan accidentes cerca de la mansión en donde viven y mantienen grogui a una de sus víctimas para alimentarse de él. Pero los excesos sanguinolentos, brutales incluso para la época, la puesta en escena histérica y los amasijos de gente en pelotas que corretea por delante de la cámara la hacen destacar sobre otras de la época. Objeto de un reciente, mucho más pulcro y decididamente inferior remake en 2015. Con Fele Martínez.

Martin (1978)

Dirección: George A. Romero

Reparto: John Amplas, Lincoln Maazel, Christine Forrest, Elyane Nadeau, Sara Venable, Francine Middleton, Roger Caine

Una singularísima exploración de la naturaleza de lo monstruoso a manos de un George A. Romero aún ajeno al bombazo internacional que supondría su 'Zombi' ese mismo año. Aquí cuenta la historia de un joven que cree ser un vampiro y se comporta como tal, aunque ni tiene colmillos afilados ni se desintegra con la luz del sol. Pero aún así quiere alimentarse de sangre y está dispuesto a efectuar todos los cortes en cuellos ajenos que sea necesario para conseguirlo.

Este argumento podría pertenecer perfectamente a una comedia negra paródica (como lo sería en parte la posterior 'Besos de vampiro'), pero Romero lo usa para sumergirse en un ambiente opresivo, tan perturbador como la mente de su protagonista. El director consigue inyectar una atmósfera de genuino cine vampírico en una historia que repite constantemente al espectador que no lo es, conduciendo al desconcierto y a una sensación de paranoia constante. Una obra maestra del primer Romero que solo recientemente ha empezando a ganarse una justa consideración de culto.

Nosferatu, vampiro de la noche (Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht, 1979)

Dirección: Werner Herzog

Reparto: Klaus Kinski, Isabelle Adjani, Bruno Ganz, Jacques Dufilho, Roland Topor, Walter Ladengast, Dan van Husen

El remake de la mítica película muda de Murnau consigue no solo mantener bien el tipo como réplica, sino reformular su logro más complicado: esa indescriptible atmósfera alucinada, como de pesadilla. Herzog llega a ella gracias a las hipnóticas interpretaciones de su trío protagonista: Kinski, por supuesto, con su físico alucinante y su comportamiento enajenado; pero también una Isabelle Adjani que parece con un constante pie en el otro barrio y Bruno Ganz como uno de los Jonathan Harker más frágiles y aterradores de la historia.

Herzog sabe extraer de la novela de Stoker y la película de Murnau los elementos que convierten esta película en una observación sobre las terribles implicaciones de la muerte: el dolor, el olvido y la soledad. Por eso recupera una de las ideas más sugestivas y menos tratadas de adaptaciones previas (ni Universal ni Hammer le prestaron atención, por ejemplo): el vampiro como una plaga infecciosa milenaria que va dejando un reguero de cadáveres apestados allá por donde pasa.

El misterio de Salem's Lot (1979)

Dirección: Tobe Hooper

Reparto: David Soul, James Mason, Lance Kerwin, Bonnie Bedelia, Lew Ayres, Reggie Nalder, Ed Flanders, Elisha Cook Jr.

De acuerdo, es una miniserie para televisión pero la insertamos aquí por haber recibido edición en formato largometraje (en España, bajo el ridículo titulo de 'Phantasma II') y por su extraordinaria calidad pese a las limitaciones catódicas. Adapta una de las mejores novelas de Stephen King y marcó a incontables niños de los ochenta en su pase por Televisión Española, hasta tal punto que para una generación, la imagen del niño vampiro arañando la ventana de su hermano es de las que traumatizan una infancia.

Su mezcla de transformación de los vampiros clásicos (tirando, curiosamente, de la iconografía del más clásico de todos, Nosferatu) con el respeto a la mitología del género (se siguen todas las reglas: la invitación a casa, la estaca, los cazadores, los ataúdes...) da como fruto una película inquietante y de atmósfera espesa, que entiende las grandes virtudes de la novela de King y sabe traducirlas a imágenes. Un clásico menor, pero revisable una y otra vez. Mucho ojo con 'Salem's Lot II', la extrañísima y también muy opresiva secuela, dirigida por Larry Cohen y con Sam Fuller como implacable cazador de vampiros.

Drácula (1979)

Dirección: John Badham

Reparto: Frank Langella, Kate Nelligan, Laurence Olivier, Donald Pleasence, Trevor Eve, Jan Francis

Junto a la estupenda TV-movie dirigida por Dan Curtis, escrita por Richard Matheson y protagonizada por Jack Palance de 1973, esta es la película que configuró al Drácula moderno inyectándole grandes dosis de romanticismo fatalista. En ambas producciones, Drácula se encapricha de una humana (algo nunca del todo bien explicado en la novela) porque es una reencarnación de su amada de tiempos remotos. La versión de Palance (que, por cierto, inspiró físicamente al mítico vampiro de los cómics de Marvel 'La tumba de Dracula), además, incluyó el elemento de Vlad el Empalador por primera vez.

La versión de John Badham de 1979, en cualquier caso, es mucho más ostentosa, con un enfrentamiento que es pura intensidad y miradas que detienen el tráfico entre Frank Langella y Laurence Olivier. Quizás la película, la más romántica de todas las adaptaciones de Drácula, renquea algo porque a Langella le falta visceralidad, pero lo cierto es que adapta por primera vez pasajes de la novela que hasta el momento permanecían inéditos. Lo peor: su existencia frustró una proyectada adaptación de Ken Russell que, desde luego, habría sido para verla.

Crítica en Espinof: Drácula

El ansia (1983)

Dirección: Tony Scott

Reparto: Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, Susan Sarandon, Cliff De Young, Willem Dafoe, Beth Ehlers, Dan Hedaya

La primera gran película de vampiros de los ochenta es un giro radical y punk de la aún reciente Drácula de Badham: a ritmo de Bauhaus y su significativa declaración de intenciones 'Bela Lugosi's dead', describe un hiperestético, sensorial y videoclipero triángulo amoroso entre (poca broma) Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie y Susan Sarandon, en el que fue el debut de Tony Scott -para muchos insuperado-.

Recuperando las connotaciones lésbicas del vampirismo a lo Hammer (que se asienta de la misma esencia del género: la 'Carmilla' de Le Fanu que inspiró el 'Drácula' de Stoker) y planteando a los vampiros no como seres tragicos y atormentados sino como adictos a una droga que ni les mata del todo ni les deja morir, 'El ansia' se revela como una de las películas de chupasangres más influyentes de las últimas décadas. Son incontables las películas que han bebido de ella en lo temático o estético.

Crítica en Espinof: 'El ansia'

Noche de miedo (1985)

Dirección: Tom Holland

Reparto: Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Roddy McDowall, Stephen Geoffreys, Jonathan Stark

Una de esas mezclas mágicas de comedia y terror que conseguían funcionar perfectamente en los ochenta en ambos campos sin necesidad de caer en la parodia o en el desequilibrio de tono. En este caso lo consigue gracias a un catálogo de personajes entrañables que protagonizan la historia de un chaval que descubre que su vecino es un vampiro que además quiere seducir a su madre. Todo ello gracias a la excelente capacidad de Tom Holland ('Muñeco diabólico', 'Maleficio') para tomarse en serio los planteamientos más desnortados.

Lo consigue además apoyado en un excelente reparto, donde destacan un seductor y grimoso Chris Sarandon como vecino vampiro y un entrañable Roddy McDowall como falso cazavampiros, que usa toda la sabiduría de la cultura pop para acabar con la amenaza. Disfrutó de un estupendo remake en 2011 a la altura de su modelo, con estupendos efectos y ambientación, y Colin Farrell y David Tennant dando perfectamente la réplica a sus precedentes de los ochenta.

Jóvenes ocultos (The Lost Boys, 1987)

Dirección: Joel Schumacher

Reparto: Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz, Dianne Wiest

Programa doble perfecto con 'Noche de miedo', ya que tiene una buena cantidad de elementos en común: mezcla de horror vampírico y comedia teen, ambiente contemporáneo y algún detalle de guión muy peculiar, como el empleo de la cultura pop como fuente de sabiduría cazavampiros (aquí personificada en un par de devotos de los tebeos de miedo, Corey Feldman y Corey Haim). Pero además, 'Jóvenes ocultos', como no podía ser de otro modo estando dirigida por Joel Schumacher, lleva al límite el homoerotismo y el delirio estético.

De ahí la idea de convertir a los vampiros en moteros (grandioso Kiefer Sutherland como chupasangres que, además, no teme cargar las tintas en lo monstruoso), con toda la estética de cuero y pandillas correspondiente y que, de algún modo, entabla un curioso diálogo posmoderno con la idea del galán a lo Bertín Osborne de 'Noche de miedo'. Fabulosos momentos de impacto y un malvado subtexto anti-establishment adulto por la vía de las citas a 'Peter Pan', para uno de los clásicos impepinables del género en los ochenta.

Los viajeros de la noche (Near Dark, 1987)

Dirección: Kathryn Bigelow

Reparto: Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, Jenette Goldstein, Joshua Miller

Una de las mejores películas de vampiros de los ochenta, coincidente en el tiempo y en algunas de sus propuestas con 'Jóvenes ocultos', pero llevándola un paso más allá. La estética de motero salvaje, al margen de la ley, que proponía la película de Schumacher, encuentra en este trallazo de la gran Kathryn Bigelow (y el no menos grande Eric Red coescribiendo el guión) su auténtica naturaleza: como road movie desértica. Cómo compagina Bigelow la fobia al sol de los vampiros con la luz abrasadora de los áridos parajes del sur de Estados Unidos es una de las muchas soluciones ingeniosas de una película que reformula sin miedo la mitología vampírica.

Con interpretaciones espectaculares de Bill Paxton y Lance Henriksen, la película también sirve para desactivar la idea del vampiro como galán que navega en un océano de tiempo y que casi una década antes había propuesto el 'Drácula' de Badham. Aqui hay romance, pero en clave juvenil y pandillera, y cuya gasolina no es una idea romántica y anticuada del amor, sino el sexo, las drogas y el rock. Un western con colmillos que encontaría su réplica una década después con 'Vampiros de John Carpenter'.

Crítica en Espinof: Los viajeros de la noche

Besos de vampiro (Vampire's Kiss, 1989)

Dirección: Robert Bierman

Reparto: Nicolas Cage, Maria Conchita Alonso, Jennifer Beals, Elizabeth Ashley, Kasi Lemmons, Bob Lujan, Jessica Lundy

Una película que se ha ganado su fama de culto por acoger en su seno una de las interpretaciones más enloquecidas de Nicolas Cage. Que ya es decir, pero es que lo de 'Besos de vampiro' es especial: Cage da vida a un agente literario que, tras un encuentro íntimo con una atractiva joven, cree haber sido convertido en un vampiro. Comienza a experimentar fobia a la luz solar y las cruces, se alimenta de cucarachas y se tiene que comprar unos colmillos de plástico porque no hay forma de que le crezcan los auténticos.

Aunque menos opresiva, 'Besos de vampiro' tiene elementos en común con la comentada 'Martin' de George A. Romero: un joven cree que se ha convertido en vampiro y las percepciones del espectador quedan mediatizadas por este estado ilusorio (o no). También con elementos en común con '¿Jo, qué noche!' con la que comparte guionista y que también presenta un descenso dantesco a los infiernos urbanitas, ''Besos de vampiro' tiene mas malicia e inteligencia de lo que parece. Histeria cageniana aparte, es una interesante reflexión sobre la locura y la percepción, usando el mito vampírico como perchero.

Drácula de Bram Stoker (1992)

Dirección: Francis Ford Coppola

Reparto: Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu Reeves, Richard E. Grant, Cary Elwes, Sadie Frost

No tan innovadora en lo temático como se dijo en su momento (casi todas sus propuestas de fidelidad a la obra original de Bram Stoker están ya en la adaptación de Badham), pero absolutamente cautivadora en lo visual. Un aspecto en el que no ha hecho sino crecer con el paso del tiempo, debido a que llegó en el momento en el que el género fantástico empezaba a ser devorado por el abuso de los efectos digitales (solo un año después llegaría 'Parque Jurásico').

Dejando de lado su romanticismo por momentos algo casposo, la obra de Coppola destaca por su imaginativo empleo de los trucajes físicos y tangibles para crear pesadillas (de juegos con perspectivas a sombras chinescas, pasando por fabulosos maquillajes o trampantojos delirantes). Y también por su variopinto reparto, que va de lo estupendísimo (Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Tom Waits) a lo algo menos brillante (Anthony Hopkins), pero que en cualquier caso hacen interesantes aportaciones al canon vampírico.

Crítica en Espinof: Drácula de Bram Stoker

Entrevista con el vampiro (1994)

Dirección: Neil Jordan

Reparto: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, Antonio Banderas, Christian Slater, Stephen Rea, Indra Ove

En plena fiebre por el vampirismo decimonónico por culpa de Coppola, esta adaptación de una de las novelas más exitosas del género de todos los tiempos -aunque hoy haya quedado un poco desfasada- superó las negras expectativas que tenía en su contra. No solo eso, sino que en muchos sentidos superó al éxito de 'Drácula de Bram Stoker' gracias a la exquisitez de su puesta en escena y a hallazgos como la casi debutante Kirsten Dunst como Claudia, uno de los personajes vampíricos más sugestivos de los noventa.

Hoy resulta difícil entender hasta qué punto la película fue atrevida: Neil Jordan acababa de ganarse un merecido prestigio global con 'Juego de lágrimas' y ahora se volcaba en una de vampiros, Tom Cruise aún estaba considerado un ídolo teen, y Brad Pitt y Antonio Banderas no habían alcanzado su actual estrellato. Por suerte, la extraordinaria calidad de la película, apasionada, retorcida, violentísima y mórbida, se sobrepuso a los negros designios que la amenazaban.

Nadja (1995)

Dirección: Michael Almereyda

Reparto: Elina Löwensohn, Martin Donovan, Galaxy Craze, Peter Fonda, Jared Harris, Suzy Amis, Karl Geary

Mientras el cine mainstream reformulaba el mito vampírico con películas tan opuestas entre sí como 'Entrevista con el vampiro' o 'Abierto hasta el amanecer', el cine indie le inyectaba mensajes turbios y retranca posmoderna en películas de bajísimo presupuesto y textura blanquinegra como 'The addiction' de Abel Ferrara o esta 'Nadja'. La primera es casi un tratado filosófico sobre la fe y la culpa muy propio de Ferrara, pero camuflado de película de vampiros. La de Almereyda es un divertidísimo pastiche con colmillos y el beneplácito de David Lynch (cameo incluido).

El enfrentamiento en territorio urbano entre Van Helsing (un Peter Fonda delicioso) y Nadja, la hija del conde Voivoide Arminius Chousescu Dracula, con sus buenas raciones de erotismo lésbico y reformulación de los tópicos del género, tiene mucho de parodia. Pero cuando mejor funciona la película es al adoptar una rarísima solemnidad subrayada por su estética tenebrosa y la música de My Bloody Valentine o Portishead y que delata que Almereyda es tan devoto de Hal Hartley como de Udo Kier. Una rareza que el tiempo no ha hecho sino revalorizar.

Abierto hasta el amanecer (1996)

Dirección: Robert Rodríguez

Reparto: George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis, Quentin Tarantino, Salma Hayek, Fred Williamson, Cheech Marin

La revelación internacional de Robert Rodríguez llegó en un momento irrepetible: Tarantino aún estaba cimentando su popularidad, George Clooney solo era conocido por 'Urgencias' y en tiempos pre-Internet se obró el milagro de que muchos espectadores llegaron al cine pensando que iban a ver una de gángsters. Y en cierto sentido, es una de gánsters que se tuerce: con dos mitades perfectamente separadas, esta bronca fiesta vampírica funciona como thriller -Tarantino y Clooney secuestran a una familia con miembros como un Harvey Keitel tronchante y una Juliette Lewis desatada- y también como película de vampiros y acción, anticipándose levemente a 'Blade'.

Un reparto entonadísimo (a todos los anteriores se unen Salma Hayek y una deliciosa ralea de secundarios como Cheech Marin, el mago de los efectos Tom Savini y el dios de la blaxploitation Fred Williamson), sumado a una violencia de tebeo como nunca antes se había visto en pantalla, dan pie a una de las producciones vampíricas más frenéticas de todos los tiempos, una que convierte los excesos de los ochenta en antiguallas artríticas. Frenética y bienhumorada, consigue hasta resultar innovadora a golpe de detalles latinos inyectados en la mitología vampírica.

Crítica en Espinof: Abierto hasta el amanecer

Brácula: Condemor II (1997)

Dirección: Álvaro Sáenz de Heredia

Reparto: Chiquito de la Calzada, Bigote Arrocet, Nadiuska, Javivi, Carla Hidalgo, Héctor Cantolla, Rubén Gálvez, Aramis Ney

Desde luego, no es la más sofisticada de las películas vampíricas de esta lista (ni siquiera la más original: casi todos sus hallazgos están en 'El baile de los vampiros'), pero indiscutiblemente sí una de las más personales. La arrolladora personalidad de Chiquito de la Calzada se apropia del mito de Drácula hasta tal punto que solo cambiando una letra de su nombre, la B de Barbate, transforma una parodia del cine de terror de raíz hispánica en una farsa chiquitistaní que tiene el consabido efecto vírico-verbal en el espectador.

Es curioso cómo Drácula se convirtió en objeto paródico para el cine español de éxito, no solo -lógicamente- en los setenta, cuando el cine de terror "serio" triunfaba en España, sino años después con películas como ésta, 'Buenas noches, señor monstruo' o 'Aquí huele a muerto'. Lo que deja bien claro que junto al western mediterráneo (al que Chiquito ya le dio la suyo en la algo menos divertida 'Aquí llega Condemor, el pecador de la pradera'), el terror vampírico es un género tan español como las tonadillas pachangueras que aquí son parodiadas con letras chupasangres.

Crítica en Espinof: Brácula: Condemor II

Vampiros de John Carpenter (1998)

Dirección: John Carpenter

Reparto: James Woods, Daniel Baldwin, Sheryl Lee, Thomas Ian Griffith, Maximilian Schell, Tim Guinee

Pese a algún problema puntual (caída de ritmo en su tramo final, un Baldwin inapropiadísimo como coprotagonista...), la virulencia y descaro de esta apropiación de John Carpenter de los códigos vampíricos (una de las escasísimas veces que ha partido de monstruos clásicos para sostener una de sus películas) la convierten en una auténtica rareza. Bola extra por hacerlo, además, en una época tan relamida como fue la década de los noventa.

Aquí, James Woods y Daniel Baldwin comandan a un grupo de cazadores de vampiros a sueldo del Vaticano que no se andan con tonterías: lejos de la sutileza de Van Helsing, entran en las guaridas de vampiros y los sacan a estacazos y con la ayuda de cables de tracción a la luz del sol, como vemos en una impresionante escena inicial que ha pasado con todo derecho a lo mejor del subgénero vampírico moderno. Por desgracia, el resto de la película no mantiene ese soberbio nivel, pero aún así, este western con colmillos es una pieza digna de revisión.

Crítica en Espinof: Vampiros de John Carpenter

Blade (1998)

Dirección: Stephen Norrington

Reparto: Wesley Snipes, Stephen Dorff, Kris Kristofferson, Sanaa Lathan, Donal Logue, Traci Lords, Udo Kier

Una de las mejores adaptaciones de un cómic Marvel en una época en la que eso no quería decir absolutamente nada, y que mezcló acción y terror con una sencillez y contundencia que hizo que muchos se preguntaran cómo no se había hecho antes (sí se había hecho, y muy bien, en 'Kung Fu contra los siete vampiros de oro'). Reformulando el mito vampírico con más sutileza de lo que parece (el héroe es un vampiro renegado, las duchas de sangre, el vampirismo como plaga desde las clases dominantes), revitalizando la estética blaxploitation e incluso adelantándose un año a 'Matrix', el impacto de Blade -pese a no ser precisamente una película de prestigio- es indiscutible.

Unos años después llegaría la muy estimable 'Blade II', irregular pero, con todo, quizás la mejor de las películas "comerciales" de Guillermo del Toro, con criaturas y conceptos interesantísimos (como siempre en Del Toro, acerca de la monstruosidad y su esencia) pero horrendos efectos CGI, y abandonando los aires de artes marciales clásicas que hacían especial a la primera entrega. 'Blade III' rubricaría la decadencia de la saga con una entrega horrible, pero para qué lo vamos a negar, también bastante disfrutona.

Crítica en Espinof: Blade

Déjame entrar (Låt den rätte komma in, 2008)

Dirección: Tomas Alfredson

Reparto: Kåre Hedebrant, Lina Leandersson, Per Ragnar, Henrik Dahl, Karin Bergquist, Peter Carlberg

Una de las películas de vampiros más singulares de los últimos tiempos, pese a manejar bazas que ya conocemos: el ambiente gélido, presente en la estimable pero inferior '30 días de oscuridad', el foco en un par de niños y los estallidos de violencia casi insoportable. Tomas Alfredson consigue darle un brío especial a todos estos elementos ya sabidos gracias a su escalofriante, casi inerte sentido del ritmo, para contar la historia de un chaval acosado en la escuela que se hace amigo de una chica de tendencias nocturnas peculiares.

Lo que la hace especial es difícil de describir con palabras, y de hecho, el inevitable remake norteamericano un par de años después, aunque interesante, fue incapaz de retener su magia. Quizás la idea del idilio entre dos niños monstruosos, quizás cómo reformula la figura del vampiro como una sombra trágica y condenada sin caer en tópicos románticos. Quizás el insólito equilibrio entre ternura y retrato de la monstruosidad sin medias tintas. Sea como fuere, una película única.

Crítica en Espinof: Déjame entrar

Sólo los amantes sobreviven (Only Lovers Left Alive, 2013)

Dirección: Jim Jarmusch

Reparto: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, Slimane Dazi, Jeffrey Wright

Una especie de heredera espiritual de 'El ansia' y 'The Addiction', con vampiros enfermizos, sufrientes debido a una vida eterna que implica sobre todo soledad y aburrimiento, y que recupera la estética decadente y postpunk de las criaturas de la noche de los ochenta. Tras un inicio de siglo lleno de brutalidad y contundencia debido al eco del éxito de 'Abierto hasta el amanecer' o 'Blade', Jim Jarmusch parece recordar que los vampiros son perfecto símbolo de la languidez romántica, y nos devuelve esa imagen del vampirismo con una película que parece aislada del tiempo en una burbuja.

Su reparto (Swinton, Hiddleston, Wasikowska, Hurt, Yelchin), increíblemente apropiado, es posiblemente el gran punto fuerte de esta película que difícilmente puede calificarse para todos los gustos, pero que sin duda cautivará a los post-post-post-góticos deseosos de ver a unos cuantos vampiros filosofar sin descanso sobre lo especiales que son y lo estupendamente mal que se encuentran. Entre mordisco y mordisco, claro.

Crítica en Espinof: Sólo los amantes sobreviven

Lo que hacemos en las sombras (What We Do in the Shadows, 2014)

Dirección: Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement

Reparto: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzales-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, Ben Fransham

Aunque es abiertamente una comedia paródica, esta película de un Taika Waititi antes de su salto al mainstream vía Marvel demuestra más conocimiento de las tradiciones vampíricas que muchas películas más solemnes. Su idea de un grupo de vampiros que comparten piso ya es grandiosa, pero se ve reforzada porque cada uno de ellos obedece a un tópico de los bebedores de sangre: el nosferatu hierático, el caballero victoriano, el donjuán nocturno...

La película se ceba en su conflictiva relación con los hombres-lobo, que ya de partida fue ridiculizada en éxitos del humor involuntario como 'Underworld' o 'Crepúsculo'. Todo ello bañado en un tempo cómico personalísimo e infalible, más que puesto a prueba en el anterior proyecto de Waititi y Clement, 'Flight of the Conchords'. Quizás la mejor parodia del fenómeno vampírico, a la altura del baile de Polanski.

Crítica en Espinof: Lo que hacemos en las sombras

Una chica vuelve a casa sola de noche (What We Do in the Shadows, 2014)

Dirección: Ana Lily Amirpour

Reparto: Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Dominic Rains, Marshall Manesh, Mozhan Marnò, Milad Eghbali

Con una estética particularísima, pero que a la vez bebe de decenas de fuentes (del spaguetti western a Nadja, pasando por el Lynch de 'Cabeza borradora' o el cine indie de los noventa), esta singular, inclasificable mezcla de película de pandilleros, reflexión sobre el vampirismo y pesadilla rodada con scope estilo western es el sorprendente debut de Ana Lily Amirpour. Cuenta la historia de una vampiresa juvenil que ronda las hiperestéticas calles, casi de tebeo, de una ciudad ficticia iraní.

El gran hallazgo de 'Una chica vuelve a casa sola de noche' es la estética de su vampírica protagonista: el chador como si fuera una capa y la tabla de skate que le permite desplazarse como si flotara son ingeniosas reformulaciones juveniles de los tópicos de los vampiros. Pero Ana Lily Amirpour esconde más sorpresas en la película, y desde la entrañable relación amorosa entre sus dos protagonistas a sus dejes tarantinescos, pasando por el curioso diálogo que establece con la reciente 'Déjame entrar', la convierten en una rarísima pieza del cine de género.

          "Siempre me he sentido más europea que francesa". Mia Hansen-Løve, directora de 'Maya'      Cache   Translate Page      

Tras la fantástica 'El porvenir', Mia Hansen-Løve cambia levemente de registro con un drama ligero que mantiene buena parte de sus constantes autorales, pero que cambia radicalmente de escenario.

Esta vez nos cuenta la historia de Gabriel (Roman Kolinka), un periodista recién liberado de un largo secuestro a manos del ISIS que decide buscar respuestas a una vida que se le ha complicado viajando a Goa. Allí se reencontrará con su familia materna y conocerá a Maya (Aarshi Banerjee), una joven prima que cambiará su visión del mundo.

Hablamos con la directora y guionista de qué novedades presenta con 'Maya', cómo continúa el discurso del resto de su obra y qué dificultades ha entrañado rodarla casi íntegramente en India.

*** ¿De dónde nace la idea para 'Maya?**

Al final de mi anterior película, 'El porvenir', el personaje de Isabelle Huppert veía el mundo desmoronarse a su alrededor, y encontraba la fuerza para recuperarse y hacer frente a la situación. Pero eso implicaba para ella renunciar al amor sensual. Y me pareció que después de dos años invertidos en la película, necesitaba cambiar de registro, y así nació 'Maya'. No es la única razón de que la película haya nacido así, ni mucho menos, pero es una de las razones. Muchas veces, cuando eres tu propia guionista, las películas funcionan como respuestas, unas dialogan con otras. O más bien, cada una colma el vacío que deja la anterior.

*** Siempre reconoce que hay un elemento biográfico en sus películas, aunque no estén inspiradas directamente en su vida. ¿Qué hay de su experiencia personal en este film?**

Bueno, para empezar viajo muy a menudo a la India. Mi abuelo era reportero de guerra, y aunque no lo conocí demasiado porque murió muy joven me marcaron las historias que me contaron de él. Pero quizás con lo que más me identifico en la película es con la búsqueda de renacimiento de Gabriel, que también es la mía.

*** ¿Cómo ha sido la experiencia de rodar en India sin caer en los clichés del pasado colonialista que arrastra Francia?**

Primero, hay que aclarar que eso es algo que no me afecta: ni yo ni mi familia arrastramos un pasado colonial, así que no tengo esa mala conciencia de muchos de mis compatriotas. Quizás también es porque siempre me he sentido más europea que francesa: mi padre es danés, nacido en Austria. Sin embargo, sí que me interesa, cuando llego a Goa, filmar los vestigios de la cultura portuguesa. Lo increíble de Goa es que es una amalgama de culturas: la india, la portuguesa y, más recientemente, de muchas otras que Goa va absorbiendo.

Por ejemplo, hay una colonia rusa muy importante (y problemas con la mafia de ese país). También los israelíes, que después de hacer el servicio militar durante cinco años, suelen ir a pasar una temporada a Goa, es algo que se ve en la película. También hay una comunidad islámica importante. Pero todos conviven. Y hay problemas, claro, hay una terrible corrupción, pero en general existe una estupenda convivencia en esta especie de utopía perdida.

*** Hay un tema recurrente en todo tu cine, que es la idea del cambio como motor que mueve a los personajes. ¿Ha cambiado, valga la redundancia, esta idea desde tus primeras películas?**

Es cierto que en todas mis películas se habla del cambio, pero es un cambio interior, una transformación íntima. Mis películas han evolucionado, pero lo cierto es que las emociones que me impulsan a contar historias y que quiero exponer siguen siendo las mismas. Lo que sí ha cambiado, quizás, es la forma, cómo las cuento. Y espero seguir evolucionando y no quedarme estancada, seguir aprendiendo.

Maya1

*** ¿Era importante para ti que la actriz que interpreta a Maya fuera debutante?**

No descarté de antemano contratar a una actriz profesional para hacer ese papel, pero lo cierto es que de algún modo sabía que acabaría recurriendo a una debutante o una actriz con muy poca experiencia. Vi cientos de vídeos, fue un casting larguísimo, pero solo Aarshi Banerjee demostró una inmediatez y espontaneidad que no fui capaz de encontrar en nadie más.

*** Aquí en España se vive un debate con respecto al interés del público en el cine: las salas están desapareciendo, las plataformas de streaming le comen terreno a las proyecciones tradicionales... ¿qué piensas del futuro del cine y las nuevas formas de pensar el cine y consumirlo?**

Me temo que mi respuesta va a ser muy deprimente (risas). Hace tiempo que reflexiono sobre el tema: la caída de espectadores, la desaparición de salas de cine, y sobre todo el empobrecimiento del pensamiento cinematográfico... Dicho esto, también intento ser positiva. Hay cosas que proporcionan alicientes. Por ejemplo, anoche presenté una película mía de hace diez años en la Filmoteca, en el cine Doré: la sala estaba casi llena a pesar del fútbol, y la gente, la mayoría muy jóvenes, se implicaron a fondo en el debate posterior a la película. Estuve también en una sala muy interesante en Nueva York, Metro Graph, donde ponen cine clásico, de todo tipo, de todas las épocas, y siempre llenan. Son islotes, pero quizás ante el avance de la nulidad cultural se genere una resistencia que nos permita oponernos.

*** ¿Qué nos puedes adelantar de 'Bergman Island'?**

Poca cosa, porque no está acabada (risas). Rodé la mitad de la película el verano pasado y terminaré con ella el verano que viene, así que hasta 2020 no estará acabada.

Anecdotes and Observations, Reflections and Critical Remarks* 

March 12th, 1801. — About sixteen years ago, a relation (who I think had a daughter) of Daniel de Foe, the author of Crusoe, lived in Broker Row, Moorfields. He was an old man, and kept a small shoemaker's shop, and had done many years; but I am not quite sure that the relationship was on his side; it might be on his wife's.

————

The notices commonly put upon walls, for bill-stickers to read and tremble, are generally worded with a threat of their being prosecuted, &c. I noticed a board affixed to the Tabernacle of G. Whitfield, [1]  worded thus — 'Please to take notice, if any Bills are put against this building, they will immediately be taken down.'

————

Providence has a very difficult task to please the creature MAN; the latter neglects his proper avocation, Agriculture, to go in search of black eyes and bloody noses, commonly called military glory, and then blames his Maker for not sending him a proper supply of food. — Publican's Newspaper. [2] 

————

I think a small kind of carriage to hold one person might be made to go on the ice with great velocity, if the whole strength of the rider could be exerted for that purpose. By the help of a sharp spike, or a pole with three or more spikes, to strike or lay hold on the ice, a great weight might be put in motion. Perhaps some such childish contrivance as this may be in use, though unknown to me. I should like to try it, and convince myself of its practicability. As to the material point, guiding the carriage, I can conceive no method; I like to see skaiting, and I should like to see this. Such a light thing on wheels might be tried on land; but I doubt the labour would be too much. This nonsense makes me think (as indeed I have always done) what a pleasure it must be, to be able to draw.

————

I never see a fine prospect but I wish to bring it away with me. The house and grounds at Wakefield, I have in the storehouse of memory; but I should like to have them on paper. I should extremely like to have a view of Honington Green, as it was till the Inclosing Act took place. Wakefield I may (though unlikely) see again; but my native Green, with its daisies, I never shall. To take such a small bit of ground and divide it into three, was hardly worth while. What man, with a sack of wheat on his back, would stoop for one grain?

Inclosing Acts! I do not much like the rage for them. They cut down the solemn, the venerable tree, and sometimes plant another, — not always; like a mercenary soldier, who kills more than he begets. Resolved — As shepherds are thus going out of fashion, and smiths, &c., coming in: could I not make the old steeple lament the destruction of shades as old as itself, and make a shepherd reply? &c. &c. But it grows near 'witching time of night,' and I perceive I am writing nonsense. If I had had a critic here at my elbow, he would have found it out long ago.

Remarks on the Garden Spider.

August 14, 1801. — This morning observed a garden spider, who had one of his own species in durance, holding him suspended, but without much appearance of a web. The prisoner was alive, but a mere skeleton. After a while he was suffered to fall, or the wind forced him from his captivity; but, in falling, he unfortunately struck against a half-formed web, the architect of which I had just been watching, and observed, that all the lines leading from the centre to the extremities were finished; and he was busy, going a continued circle, and joining each with a fresh web, which he drew from his posteriors, at regular strokes, by an extension of his longest legs behind. The beforementioned prisoner fell against his web, and he immediately left work to secure him, being still alive, and having legs not at all diminished, though his body was wasted. His new conqueror seized him, and, rolling him up in a strong web, dragged him to the centre, and there left him secure, and returned to his work, which he soon completed. I had observed him about a quarter of an hour previous to this adventure, and remarked that he caught a number of very small flies, which abounded on every weed, after much rain in the night; and I was not a little surprised that these minute creatures did not stop his progress, but were instantly devoured; not as I expected, by sucking their bodies dry: he took them up very orderly, and very distinctly, and devoured them, wings and all, without leaving the smallest appearance of a fragment. He had eaten seven of these flies before the spider fell in his way.

August 20, 1801. — A spider of this kind, of an enormous size, has now a web, of about a foot in diameter, hung with spoils, against a wooden fence in the yard. I have repeatedly seen them working their webs, but never could see them begin. The insect, here mentioned, has attached his work on one side to the fence, from which it projects obliquely, and is suspended to a branch of a vine, at the distance of five feet from the circle of the web. As the suspending lines are very strong, and run exactly horizontally, without any intermediate support, it is wonderful to me, to think how they could have been carried so far. A double five foot line, which leaves the fence in this direction, must have been a curious work for him.

In the outline here given, the upper sketch is looking down on the work; the under one is looking horizontally.

The body of the spider being nearly half an inch in length, he has more than twenty-four times his length in one foot, and, consequently, one hundred and twenty times in his suspending lines. Now, taking the standard of a man at five feet six inches, one hundred and twenty times his length, will be six hundred and sixty feet, or two hundred and twenty yards; about three times the height of the Monument. [3]  If we were set to tie the tops of the steeples of London together with a cord, without scaffolding, should not we be puzzled to contrive it? We should go to school to spiders, and ants, and bees; but of all these — the spider does his work alone.

September 9, 1801. — This morning, extricated a bee from a web, but without any signs of life. Another web contained a bee larger than the common honey bee; he appeared completely enveloped in a winding-sheet of the web, of a very large spider, whose premises he had unfortunately trespassed upon. Thus it is evident that this tiger of an insect devours creatures larger than itself. If the means by which he is enabled to do so were common to the beasts of the forest, how dreadful would be a net spun by the lion or the tiger, from which the horse and his rider could not disentangle themselves, no more than a strong bee can from this pest of the garden.

September 14th, 1801. — Having expressed surprise at the work of a spider, I can now trace with certainty his operations and his power, so as to satisfy myself entirely. Often wondering how came all the long; webs that tickle our noses and glitter in the sun, reaching from one tree to another, and often floating loose in the air; I, a few days past, broke down the web of a garden spider, which was suspended from a building to a fence across a pathway of about five feet, and much the same height from the ground. When his suspending lines were broke, himself and his web fell flat against the building. An hour or two after, I observed him in motion, and wished to know how he would contrive a communication with the fence as before.

He seemed, for a while, as if taking a general survey of the distance and bearings of the objects around; and then letting himself down from a spout to the distance of about six inches, hung suspended, not in their usual position, head downwards, but with one side downwards, and all his legs greatly extended. In this posture I found that, without the help of his legs, he possessed a power of ejecting a web to what length he pleased, and with surprising swiftness. It had exactly the appearance of smoke issuing through a pin hole; only, in this case, the stream instead of dissipating, became a lengthening line, that floated with the action of the wind, and visibly extended from its source, as fast, or faster than the nimblest black beetle can run. He emitted thus, about seven or eight feet of web, and then ascended to the spout, and waited the event. The line was carried by the wind cornerways, and lodged against the building, and consequently became useless. He did the same again, with the same want of success, and repeated his work a fourth time, when I caught hold of his floating line, at about four feet long, and when extended to five, I drew it over the leaf of a bean, and it became fast; but he, still lengthening it, the line was very slack. After a few minutes he applied himself to drawing the rope tight, which, when done, he travelled upon it to the opposite side, and made my fastening secure; then back again, emitting a new web as he went, and joining it to the other to strengthen it, till it became visibly improved.

Next, starting from one end, he proceeded, without splicing a new strengthener, to the centre of the horizontal line, exactly to the centre, and there lowered himself down to the ground, and drew this perpendicular line very tight, or else it was his weight that did it. The ground beneath was a gravel path; he there fastened this line to the gravel, at E (see sketch), by pressing it down with a motion peculiar to themselves, and then ascended again: at which time he had formed an obtuse angle, by drawing down the horizontal line; then, forwarding his work, he drew the line D, to which the lines from the centre were to be fastened. To form the line D, he traversed the lines B C, bearing the line D in his claw detached, and, fastening it at the upper end of B, proceeded to draw the lines from A to C and B in the same manner. From this outline, the formation of the lines from the centre to the extremities appeared easy.

I have sometimes broken down a part of their work, and have observed that they will carefully gather up the fragments of the web, and either leave it in white knots, or appear entirely to swallow it.

A small spider had fastened a line of his work, to the outermost lines of a web, belonging to a very large one; the latter hastened to the confines of his premises, and cut asunder the stranger's holdfast, something like cutting a boat adrift. I find it a common opinion, that the spider, when he catches a fly, destroys him by poison; it may be so; — but I see, by close observation, that his strong dependence is placed in folding him rapidly up in a web, which he draws from himself abundantly for the purpose.

————

I wonder whether I shall hereafter think these moments mispent in watching a spider? — At present I think their nature and properties strange, and not yet entirely known, even to naturalists; their whole proceedings amazingly curious; their degree of instinctive contrivance, and their exactness of figure in their squares and angles, and visible use of every line, truly astonishing.

The spider, while descending by his web, was baited by the flies, in the same manner as we see a hawk baited by the smaller birds*.

October 4th, 1802. — Found last week a letter in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1759 (I think), by a Mr. Masser, 'on the Gossimer,' [4]  wherein he has been correct in his account of the spider having an ejecting power, as to the formation of his web. I found this by observation last summer, and was pleased at the discovery, for to me it was such. But his account of flying spiders is not clear and comprehensive. Does he mean spiders with wings? or, spiders with a power of unlimited elevation, by an ejectment of web?

* It is now known, that the spider sometimes exhausts the material from which his web is formed; in which case, he is in imminent danger of starvation. I once saw a spider reduced to this extremity, running wildly about on a sunny board. Several large flies, who seemed to enjoy his distress, tormented him, by settling within an inch of his nose; and when the spider made a rush to seize one, he would take a short flight, and settle down again at about the same distance. This game lasted nearly two hours; when the spider's strength and patience appearing to be quite worn out, he retired to a hole. —

Spiders again.

Proved, by observing a spider with a small microscope, that when I had broken down a web in the garden, he carefully gathered up the fragments, and moistening the accumulated web in its approach to his mouth, swallowed it all again.

General Observations.

In addition to the foregoing extracts, I now wish to say a word or two in farther explanation. The nests of this kind of spider are generally attached fast to woodwork, in a dry situation, in size not exceeding an hazel-nut, appearing like a knot of raw silk, of an exceeding close texture. I put one of these into an unstopped bottle, and, forgetting to watch it minutely, I at length found it as follows: From the mouth of the bottle to a shelf above, was about eighteen inches; and I found the eggs hatched, and not less than several hundreds of connecting lines of communication between the bottle and the shelf, covered in every direction with the infant swarm, entirely yellow. From this I think it evident, that the power of ejecting the web is exercised at an early stage of life. I think too, from every consideration, that their preying on each other is a matter beyond a doubt.

I have somewhere read, that the garden spider uniformly makes his web of great or small dimensions, according to the approaching degree of sunshine or rain, and thus, with the utmost precision, foretels the weather. This I have not yet proved, but am much inclined to give credit to the assertion.

Custom not only imposes on us modes of dress, and sometimes of conduct, which our reason does not approve, but prevents us from adopting many a useful practice or improvement. I have read somewhere, of the northern nations, wearing a contrivance of wood, to screen the sight, from the reflection of sunbeams from the snow, which, unobstructed, is injurious to the sight. Custom there, does not forbid them to preserve their eyes; but here, where in the summer months, the sunbeams are reflected from the gravel of the roads, and from the pavement of the streets, in almost an intolerable manner; — where the evil of too much light is evident in every one's face, and every eye is half-closed to exclude it; — where thousands, in their walks of pleasure, would gladly gaze on the distant objects before them — the hills, the villages, and the woods, if the quivering of the sun's rays, and his flood of light would permit them; where thousands (myself amongst them) come home with the anguish and languor of a headach, and with eye-balls parched and painful, from having been forced to meet a light ten times stronger than they could bear; if a person, I say, was to put a crape over his eyes, or any contrivance to remedy the evil, the novelty of his appearance would be a real trouble to him, by subjecting him to the scoffs and insults of fools: and yet the pleasure of walking with ease to one's self, is a thing which no one will contemn, when he consults reason only. The prevalence of too much light is to me a serious evil, and I am convinced is hurtful to the sight. Our mothers tell us not to gaze on the sun, and not to read or work by a bad light, thus warning us that extremes are to be avoided; and our feelings tell us to double our clothes in winter, and to strip in summer; to eat our broth when it is cool enough, and not scald our throats; and many other good things would our feelings tell us, if they were properly attended to.

What a wide difference may be seen between the manner of bringing up children, as to the chance they have of seeing in their youth, what we call the beauties of Nature. If I had been placed in my infancy in the situation of one of the boys who worked in the same garret with me, — had I possessed the power of writing poetry to please the world, — I must have wanted materials at least, to have written what I have. Poor Jem Bailey, was, with four others, left motherless; his father turned them over to the workhouse, situated somewhere in Southwark. When Jem became old enough, he was sent out as errand-boy, to any one who might want such a boy, for which he got nothing but food. He lived with a Doctor, and carried nostrums from morning till night: his master giving him a livery-coat, to raise his own consequence with those he attended. (This was his best coat when he came as an apprentice to the boot-trade.) Another of his masters kept a fishing-tackle shop, in Crooked-lane, and of course part of his trade was to have maggots or gentles to sell to those, who had patience enough to angle in the New River. To obtain this bait, a quantity of bullocks' lights was exposed to the flies on the leads, of the house; and often have I heard the poor boy express the abhorrence he felt, when called from his dinner to serve a ha'p'orth of gentles, which was done by shaking the lights, and picking up the fruit.

Lord Kenyon's [5]  integrity, as stated in the accounts of trials in the newspapers, (for I never saw him), gives me the highest idea of the character of a Judge, which I have ever found. His office, arms him with power: but the exertion of power is marked with the peculiarity of the possessor. The determined and pithy reproofs he gives to notorious guilt, are the most shining examples of honesty to be found in the language.

At the time the Albion Mills were burned, [6]  I never saw the newspapers; and led so recluse a life, that three days elapsed before I heard of it, though I lived in Chiswell-street; a proof that there may be now living in Paris, persons, who saw little or nothing of the great events which have taken place there. Again — when five hundred houses were burning at Ratcliffe, [7]  some years ago, I did not know it till the next night! A man's mind may be travelling half over the globe, and yet know little of what is doing next door.

'Full many a gem of purest ray serene,
'The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear.' [8] 

The sovereign contempt with which too many of the wealthy, and (I fear also) of the learned, look upon what are termed 'the dregs of the people,' has often raised an equal contempt on my side, for that wealth, which engenders such thoughts of the immense distance, which those 'dregs are from the surface.' The distance is not so great as the vain man flatters himself it is; I have known mechanics, who in general information, and in powers of intellect, have stood decidedly before thousands of their own rank. Is it not decidedly so among gentlemen — one clever fellow to a great many dull ones? I have heard more sense and truth in a tap-room, than I have sometimes heard in better company; and there is nothing more striking to me, (and I have been placed so as to observe it,) than that total ignorance of the manner of living among the poor — that superficial and vague idea of who and what they are — of what they talk, and of what they think! Nothing to me has appeared more strange or more disgusting, than finding amongst those ranks, raised above the mechanic and labourer, such a mean opinion of the poor! Gentlemen, 'tis true, seldom enter alleys, or see the domestic habits of those nests of human wretchedness: and they think, perhaps, that poverty must of necessity be accompanied with ignorance ; but I find that a man who works for his living, and reads whatever he can catch——————! His whole soul is bent to that point; and if nature has given him a talent for observation, no situation can make him contemptible. If a great and noble mind is granted by nature to only one in a thousand — does she order that that one, shall not be born in an alley? That he must be rich, or great? Does nature, when she makes an orator, provide him a seat in the House of Commons? — A poor man with a strong mind will make himself respected in his circle, and make useful remarks on every occurrence. A rich man, with great native powers, will do the same. A poor man, with a moderate understanding, will remain at the bottom of his class. A rich man of inferior powers will do the same, in spite of all that can be done for him.

A short time ago, the publicans' paper, [10]  after stating that the price of corn and flour did not fall in consequence of an abundant harvest, added — 'Let our avaricious tyrants blush! Let them dread the vengeance of parliament! The guardians of the people!' By placing certain words in italics, I suppose it to be wholly ironical; if not, the joke is better still: for what dreadful punishment will a man inflict on himself?

In their paper of to-day they finish a paragraph of the same sort thus:— 'How long these plans of extortion are to continue, Heaven only knows — for to Heaven only can the people look for relief.'

Now by this last sentence, one would think they had found out, that the dealers in corn were not likely to blush, or to tremble; and that many of them were among the guardians of the people.

Walker's Gazetteer [12]  describes Stone-henge, and says that one of the stones measures, according to Doctor Hales, twenty-five feet long, seven feet broad, three and a half feet thick, and says, that no mechanical power now known, could raise such a weight. Guthrie's Grammar, [13]  describes the Pagoda of Chillambrune, near Porto-Nova, on the Coromandal Coast; its entrance beneath a pyramid a hundred and twenty-two feet high, built with large stones above forty feet long, and more than five feet square.

And of the Pagoda of Seringham, the outer wall of which makes a circumference of four miles; its southern gates are supported by pillars composed of single stones, thirty-three feet long, and nearly five in diameter. This wall encloses six others at equal distances, twenty-five feet high, and four thick!*

Dined lately in company with Mr. Peel [15]  and his brother, who have brought the skeleton of the Mammoth from America: both clever fellows, and masters of their study.

Dimensions of the Skeleton now exhibiting in Pall

Mall, November 25, 1802.

Ft. In.
Height over the shoulders 11   0
Length from the chin to the rump 15   0
Width of the hips and body   5   0
Length of the under jaw   2 10
Weight of the same, 63 1/2lbs.
Width of the head   3   2
Length of the thigh bone   3   7
Ditto of the large bone of the fore leg   2 10
Largest circumference of the same   3 2 1/2
Length of shoulder blade   3   1
Longest rib without cartilage   4   7
Length of the tusks, defences, or horns 10   7
Circumference of one tooth or grinder   1 6 1/2
Weight of the same, 4lb. 10 oz.
The whole weighs about 1000 lbs.

This skeleton was dug up almost entire, but the tusks were rotten, so that artificial tusks (made in imitation of a real one, which now lies in the room in a decayed state), are put to this skeleton; but the use of these tusks appears doubtful; and perhaps were not placed as they are here. His teeth, prove most clearly, that he did not feed on vegetable food, and yet his swallow appears much straitened, for so immense a creature.

This skeleton was found lying at the bottom of a bog, several feet from the surface. Parts of the bones of this kind of animal have been found on the banks of the Ohio, and in various other parts of America, to the number, it is supposed, of fifty; so that the animal, though now an extinct race, has been numerous; and as remains of shell-fish are found with the bones, it is conjectured that an inundation destroyed the race, and left us to wonder at what must have lived, though so much larger than any animal now known to exist — not excepting the elephant. Bones of this creature are found vastly much larger than the skeleton. A thigh bone now lies in the room, some inches longer than those in the skeleton, and a tooth of seven pounds weight is now at Philadelphia.
