Kress, Bruno Amati, Trevor D. Littlewood, Gerard I. Evan, Catherine H. Wilson. Reactivation of Myc transcription in the mouse heart unlocks its proliferative capacity. Nature Communications, 2020; 11 (1) DOI: 10.1038/s41467-020-15552-x

“This is really exciting because scientists have been trying to make heart cells proliferate for a long time. None of the current heart disease treatments are able to reverse degeneration of the heart tissue — they only slow progression of the disease. Now we’ve found a way to do it in a mouse model,” said Dr Catherine Wilson, a researcher in the University of Cambridge’s Department of Pharmacology, who led the study.

The cell cycle — through which cells make copies of themselves — is tightly controlled in mammalian cells. Cancer develops when cells start to replicate themselves uncontrollably, and the Myc gene plays a key role in the process. Myc is known to be overactive in the vast majority of cancers, so targeting this gene is one of the highest priorities in cancer research. Much recent research has focused on trying to take control of Myc as a means of cancer therapy.

When the researchers made Myc overactive in a mouse model, they saw its cancerous effects in organs including the liver and lungs: huge amount of cells started replicating over the course of a few days. But in the heart, nothing much happened.

They found that Myc-driven activity in heart muscle cells is critically dependent on the level of another protein called Cyclin T1, made by a gene called Ccnt1, within the cells. When the Ccnt1 and Myc genes are expressed together, the heart switches into a regenerative state and its cells start to replicate. The results are published today in the journal Nature Communications.

“When these two genes were overexpressed together in the heart muscle cells of adult mice we saw extensive cell replication, leading to a large increase in the number of heart muscle cells,” said Wilson.

Heart failure affects around 23 million people worldwide each year, and there is currently no cure. After a heart attack, an adult human heart can lose up to one billion heart muscle cells — called cardiomyocytes. Unlike many other organs in the body, the adult heart can’t regenerate itself, so these cells are never replaced. Their loss reduces the strength of the heart and causes scar formation, heart failure and ultimately death.

Using a next generation sequencing technology called ChIP, the researchers were able to watch the action of Myc in the heart cells. Myc produces a protein — called a transcription factor — that binds to the DNA in specific cells and activates gene expression. But despite the protein binding successfully, the heart cells didn’t start to replicate themselves because the protein could not activate gene expression. Another protein vital to gene expression, Cyclin T1, was deficient in the heart. Adding it to the cells with the overactive Myc caused the cells to start proliferating.

“None of the current treatment options can reverse the degeneration of heart tissue. The inability of the heart to regenerate itself is a significant unmet clinical need,” said Wilson. “We found that even when Myc is switched on in a heart, the other tools aren’t there to make it work, which may be one of the reasons heart cancer is so extremely rare. Now we know what’s missing, we can add it and make the cells replicate.”

As the world’s population grows and the prevalence of heart failure increases, the cost of patient care is anticipated to increase dramatically. The researchers hope to develop their finding into a genetic therapy for the treatment of heart disease. “We want to use short-term, switchable technologies to turn on Myc and Cyclin T1 in the heart. That way we won’t leave any genetic footprint that might inadvertently lead to cancer formation,” said Wilson.

Oblivion, Italy 1 film directed by Joseph Kosisnki

Oblivion it goes broadcast today, Sunday 5 December, at 9.20 pm on Italia 1. The film cleverly combines a taste for adventure and science fiction produced in the United States of America in 2013. Production, script and direction were carried out by Joseph Kosisnki. The film can count on a very respectable cast, thanks to the participation of famous names such as Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. It is certainly a work suitable for an audience looking for entertainment even if some authorial ideas are well present.

Oblivion, the plot of the film

Oblivion tells the events that took place in 2077, with a post apocalyptic scenario of the earth after the war which has seen terrestrial opposites and an alien race called “Scavengers” and due to the natural calamities resulting from the destruction of the moon. Jack Harper and Victoria Olsen, led from space by a woman named Sally, manage the fate of the planet both from the point of view of maintenance and safety against the surviving scavengers. Specifically, they monitor the technological system that uses ocean water to generate new energy. In addition, they observe the movements of powerful drones made to kill surviving extraterrestrials.

Once their monitoring mission is complete, they will then have to leave the post and land. In the meantime, however, Jack is tormented by some visions depicting a mysterious woman; moreover, he is not convinced of abandoning the planet after having discovered a still fertile area of ​​the earth, near a lake. For her part, Victoria seems to be almost eager to finish the mission on earth to no longer have to be afraid of the scavengers. During a patrol operation, the man comes across a real trap; entering an underground area to retrieve a broken drone, he finds himself in the middle of a real ambush by extraterrestrials. Fortunately, he is rescued from another where he kills all the scavengers involved in the trap. The next day the tranquility of the two boys is destabilized by a malfunction of a hydro-auger; the problem was due to an energy cell of a drone.

Victoria later spots a strange signal that increases Jack’s uncertainty even more. The signal came from a scavenger beacon, causing the boy to have further thoughts. As if that weren’t enough, a huge unknown aircraft collapses from the sky and Jack, despite the contrary opinion of his girlfriend, decides to go to the crash site. Upon his arrival he discovers that among the survivors there are numerous hibernating humans who are promptly killed by a drone as a precaution. However, the man manages to prevent a woman named Julia Rusakova from being killed; the girl had the same features as the person present in her visions, so she decides to lead her to their safe place. Subsequently, Jack and Julia go to the crash site to find the black box; in this circumstance man discovers a new part of truth.

They are captured by the scavengers who actually turn out to be surviving humans. A man named Beech relates that Jack had actually been sent 60 years earlier into space to investigate the Tet, a mysterious entity that was the main cause of the moon’s destruction. After an initial skepticism on the part of the boy, he realizes that everything could make sense especially when Julia confides to him that in reality she was his wife. After several attempts by Sally to bring them back with the drones to the base, the two manage to escape with Jack increasingly convinced that he wants to bring everything back to normal. The goal was in fact to destroy the entity that had thrown the earth into despair.

The plan was to launch an energy-laden drone at the Tet in order to destroy it permanently. The man with the help of Beech manages to reach the colossal alien structure where Sally is waiting for him, who turns out to be nothing more than an imposing extraterrestrial structure. Jack becomes aware that he really is a clone of himself and is aware that he is carrying out a suicide mission. In the meantime, however, he managed to secure a future for Julia in the only livable place on earth he discovered. Once the nuclear bomb is activated, in addition to exploding the Tet, all the drones following the structure are canceled forever. The story at this point moves to 3 years later, with Julia who managed to survive together with her son conceived with Jack in previous years.. In addition, she is soon joined by other humans who have survived the recent disasters.

  1. Amir Haluts, Sylvia F. Garza Reyes, Dan Gorbonos, Robert Ian Etheredge, Alex Jordan, Nir S. Gov. Spatiotemporal dynamics of animal contests arise from effective forces between contestants. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2021; 118 (49): e2106269118 DOI: 10.1073/pnas.2106269118

The solution appears to lie in animal magnetism, or more correctly, in the effective physical forces that males and females experience on the elastic surface of the spider web. “Our initial concept was to explore the idea that these spiders moving on the web behave like electrons orbiting a nucleus, or planets orbiting a star,” says Jordan, who leads the Integrative Behavioral Ecology Lab at the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior, and is co-senior author on the study. From this initial idea, a research program was born, leading the two teams to develop a physical model and perform experiments in the Panamanian rainforest.

Competitive web arena

While the details of the precise physics ultimately diverged from both atomic and cosmic levels, the concept proved useful. “Imagine electrons orbiting a nucleus, or a massive star in space, so large that it generates its own gravitational field pulling in objects around it — the giant, cannibalistic female can be thought of in the same way,” says Jordan. “Now imagine smaller planets, satellites, or comets coming near this attractive force — these are our tiny, brave males.” Approach the star (or female) too rapidly, or at the wrong angle, and you risk getting caught up in her attractive pull. On a cosmic scale, this will result in a cosmic collision that vaporizes the planet. For the intrepid male, an incorrect approach means falling into a fatal attraction and ending up as prey.

“Working in the rainforests of Panama, I’ve seen over-zealous males fall victim to the cannibalistic females many times, especially when they take the wrong path, or approach the female too fast,” says Sylvia Garza, co-author of the study, who spent months in Panama as a Master’s student recording the behavior of male and female spiders, then using machine-learning approaches to track their every movement.

Vibratory cues

Just as the smaller planets have their own gravitational pull, the males also attract one another — initially approaching the perceived rival. The males also start to repel each other as they get closer and closer, in this way behaving much more like electrons around a nucleus.

“The motion of these males resembles interactions between particles that attract or repel one another depending on the distance between them,” says Amir Haluts, a physicist by training and lead author of the study from the Weizmann Institute of Science. Co-senior author Nir Gov, also from the Weizmann, says: “We use models to map the effective physical forces that males experience, allowing us to explain their motion on the web, as well as contest dynamics of males of different sizes.” As the males orbit one another, they will eventually come too close together, crashing into each other in open fighting. All this is played out on the surface of the web, which acts as the conduit for the vibrations males use to communicate, but which can also alert the female to their presence and lead to a fatal attack.

The team’s research demonstrates that the seemingly complex decisions that males make, balancing risk and reward, life and death, do not require advanced intelligence or understanding of the game they are playing. Instead, the same solutions can be achieved by sensing vibrations on the web and responding to the physical forces of attraction and repulsion, just as physical particles might do. “Early on, I was perplexed by our first results, which showed that these males could solve these complex tasks apparently without the required cognitive machinery,” says Jordan. “I joked with Nir that it’s almost like these males are electrons orbiting around the female ‘nucleus’. This led to us coining the term ‘Atomic Spiders’ and it turns out that it may not be that far from the truth.”

Alongside its diplomatic and commercial aspects, Emmanuel Macron’s trip to Saudi Arabia on Saturday, December 4, included a small tourist and heritage dimension. Since the signing in April 2018 of an intergovernmental agreement with Riyadh, the French state has been jointly responsible for the development of the ancient site of AlUla, a Nabataean necropolis (a civilization that prospered between the Iis century BC AD and IIe century AD AD and whose capital was Petra, Jordan) in the sands of the north-west of the kingdom.

This project is being piloted on the French side by the AlUla Development Agency (Afalula), together with the Royal Commission for AlUla, on the Saudi side. The transformation of these majestic stone-hewn tombs into a global tourist destination is one of the flagship projects of Vision 2030, the modernization plan of Crown Prince Mohammed Ben Salman, the bis King of Arabia.

In Jeddah, the great port of Western Saudi Arabia, where he met the man nicknamed “MBS”, Mr. Macron was notably accompanied by Gérard Mestrallet, the president of Afalula. The French president’s visit to the kingdom comes as the site, which had been running for two years, has shifted into high gear. In December 2020, the “master plan” was officially validated by the dolphin and, in mid-November, the airport to the south of the oasis welcomed its first international flight.

Diversification strategy

While the site was only accessible in recent years by invitation, distributed to VIPs and influencers, during test weekends, it is now open to everyone and all year round – as long as the pandemic of Covid-19 does not force Saudi Arabia to close its borders. Between December and February, the spectacularly shaped concretions that dot AlUla are the scene of multiple shows: concerts, horse endurance races, polo matches, etc.

For Mohammed Ben Salman, this project is an opportunity to highlight a little-known aspect of Arabia, obviously more promising than the human rights violations with which the country is frequently associated in Western public opinion. Long taboo in the kingdom, accused of defiling the cradle of Islam, tourism is now considered by the crown as a lever of soft power, of international influence, just like the Formula 1 Grand Prix, which was organized Sunday in Jeddah.

The exploitation of Saudi landscapes, whether it is the desert or the coast of the Red Sea – where high-end resorts are being prepared – is also part of the country’s post-oil diversification strategy. And, through Afalula, France has positioned itself to take advantage of it. After architect Jean Nouvel, chosen to create an upscale hotel in the ocher rock canyons of AlUla, several French companies have won contracts related to the development of this archaeological treasure, such as Thales and the engineering consortium Egis.

The study Weta Workshop, responsible for the impressive special effects and movie sets such as The Lord of the rings, Avatar and Shang-Chi, among many others, announced that it is working on a new video game based on a great franchise recognized worldwide. Although there are no details about it yet, the gamer community is already waiting and, of course, speculating about the possible franchise.

The information was released from the hand of Gamespot, which revealed a job search for Weta Workshop’s gaming division: “We are looking for a producer to help us develop cutting-edge games. Our next release for PC is an incredibly rich and inspiring license that will delight fans and gamers around the world. Sounds interesting?”. Although this extract mentions a “launch for PC”, another part of the search to clarify that the project aims to also reach consoles.

Although the franchise on which the future title will be based is not mentioned, much of the fans speculate that it is nothing more and nothing less than The Lord of the Rings, which will launch its new television series in September. 2022. The show ended its filming a few months ago, but is already preparing several more seasons. Although there were already many video games based on Lord of the Rings, the history of the series by Amazon Hundreds of years pass before the history of the Fellowship of the Ring, which proposes an unexplored terrain to learn from different perspectives and formats.

Weta Workshop was also responsible for the technology behind Alita: Battle Angel.
Weta Workshop was also responsible for the technology behind Alita: Battle Angel.

Another possible franchise is, of course, Star Wars, which not long ago opened its possibilities in the world of gaming. The exclusivity contract with Electronic Arts is coming to an end in the next few years and several new titles have already been announced based both on the stories of a galaxy far, far away, as well as other properties of LucasFilms, What Indiana Jones. Weta Workshop is the ideal studio to capture the visual essence of the Star Wars universe, something that also has fans of the franchise very excited.

On the other hand, the franchise does not have to be related to the world of cinema, but when it comes to large properties with a large audience worldwide, generally speaking of exclusivities belonging to companies already established in the gaming industry.

At the moment, however, there is no more official information in this regard. The job search comes just weeks after it was revealed that Unity, the company behind the popular graphics engine, will buy Weta Workshop for $ 1.6 billion. This purchase assumes that Unity seeks to compete as equals to the Unreal Engine from Epic Games graphically thanks to the new resources provided by Weta. However, it is unknown if the future video game has something to do with this new union or if it is a project that has been in development before.

It only remains to wait for official news to learn more about this project that, even if it is not the best video game in history, it will surely have a remarkable technical level.

The show ended its filming a few months ago, but is already preparing several more seasons. Although there were already many video games based on Lord of the Rings, the history of the series by Amazon Hundreds of years pass before the history of the Fellowship of the Ring, which proposes an unexplored terrain to learn from different perspectives and formats.

Weta Workshop was also responsible for the technology behind Alita: Battle Angel.

Another possible franchise is, of course, Star Wars, which not long ago opened its possibilities in the world of gaming. The exclusivity contract with Electronic Arts is coming to an end in the next few years and several new titles have already been announced based both on the stories of a galaxy far, far away, as well as other properties of LucasFilms, What Indiana Jones. Weta Workshop is the ideal studio to capture the visual essence of the Star Wars universe, something that also has fans of the franchise very excited.

On the other hand, the franchise does not have to be related to the world of cinema, but when it comes to large properties with a large audience worldwide, generally speaking of exclusivities belonging to companies already established in the gaming industry.

At the moment, however, there is no more official information in this regard. The job search comes just weeks after it was revealed that Unity, the company behind the popular graphics engine, will buy Weta Workshop for $ 1.6 billion. This purchase assumes that Unity seeks to compete as equals to the Unreal Engine from Epic Games graphically thanks to the new resources provided by Weta. However, it is unknown if the future video game has something to do with this new union or if it is a project that has been in development before.

It only remains to wait for official news to learn more about this project that, even if it is not the best video game in history, it will surely have a remarkable technical level.

EXCLUSIVE: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton has entered into an exclusive multi-year overall deal with Disney companies Marvel Studios and Hulu’s Onyx Collective. The filmmaker is already in development with Marvel Studios on a new MCU series for Disney+.

At the same time, Disney has made it official that Cretton is returning to write and direct the sequel to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

The big new deal enables Cretton to develop TV projects for both Marvel Studios for Disney+ and Onyx Collective across all platforms, including Hulu. Maui-born Cretton will produce through a new production company he is launching with partner Asher Goldstein, named Family Owned. Together they will focus on building a slate of projects in film and TV that highlight the experiences of communities that have traditionally been overlooked by pop culture.

“Destin is a powerhouse storyteller with impeccable taste in material. As we continue to expand our roster, Destin’s unique voice will help usher in an exciting slate of content for our global audience,” said Tara Duncan, President, Freeform & Onyx Collective.

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, starring Simu Liu, Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, and Tony Leung, represents the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that is led by an Asian actor, and mostly Asian cast. The film, which opened over Labor Day weekend, is the highest grossing domestic release to date this year with $224.5M. The movie’s Labor Day opening box office record of $94.6M repped a rebound for the pandemic box office, and encouraged rival studios to keep their event releases scheduled throughout the remainder of the year in cinemas during the pandemic as moviegoers made a point to return. Worldwide, Shang-Chi has grossed close to $432M.

“Destin is an amazing collaborator who brought a unique perspective and skill to Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. We had a fantastic time working together on the film and he has so many intriguing ideas for stories to bring to life on Disney+, so we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with him and can’t wait to get started,” said Kevin Feige, President, Marvel Studios and Chief Creative Officer.

There are no details about the Marvel series Cretton is working on for Disney+. At the Disney streamer, Cretton also has American Born Chinese, an action-comedy based on the 2006 graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang, which recently received a straight-to-series order.

“Working on Shang-Chi with Kevin and the Marvel Studios team was one of the highlights of my life, and I couldn’t be more excited about Tara’s vision for Onyx Collective. I can’t wait to explore new stories and build new worlds with this community,” said Cretton.

Cretton’s feature film debut, I Am Not a Hipster, premiered at Sundance in 2012, and was followed by Short Term 12, which won the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the SXSW Film Festival in 2013, featuring early performances by Brie Larson, Lakeith Stanfield, Rami Malek, Kaitlyn Dever, and John Gallagher Jr. His third movie, an adaptation of the New York Times best-selling memoir, The Glass Castle, starred Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts and was released in 2016 by Lionsgate. Following this, Cretton directed Just Mercy for Warner Bros, the adaptation of the New York Times best-selling memoir by civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson. The film starred Michael B. Jordan, Larson and Jamie Foxx with the latter receiving a SAG nomination for Best Supporting Male Actor.

Onyx Collective focuses on curating premium content by artists of color and underrepresented voices. Cretton joins the brand’s already-announced roster of prolific creators, including writer and comedian Natasha Rothwell (Insecure, SNL), Prentice Penny (Insecure), and all non-Marvel titles produced by Ryan Coogler’s Proximity (Judas and the Black Messiah, Black Panther).

From personal experience, Priscyla Betim developed the argument of The City of Abysses, feature film with a timeless setting, signed alongside Renato Coelho. The film follows Gloria, a trans woman, Bia, a middle-class young woman from São Paulo, and Kakule, an African immigrant, who witness a murder on Christmas Eve. We had the opportunity to chat with both of them to learn more about the production.

The path from experimental shorts to feature films

Priscyla and Renato’s career as filmmakers is based on the idea of ​​making films with as few people as possible. As the director explained, “making films demands a lot of people involved in the team and what we wanted was to try something simpler and more spontaneous”. According to her, Renato “already researched the filmmaker’s work Jairo Ferreira and her work with Super 8 (camera from the 1960s/70s)” and, similarly, in her Masters, she started to research the work of Jonas Mekas.

At first, pair decided to make short films that embraced experimental cinema. So they spent “a decade developing short films in analogue format, art films and experimental films”. In addition, said Priscyla, their creation and execution process did not require a script, however, when thinking about the feature, the script became necessary. She stated, “I wasn’t inexperienced, but I had only written screenplays during college, as documentary film gives you more freedom.”

Renato told us that he “got used to making films with few collaborators”. About the financial, he said that “most of the time it was without raising funds by public notice, with their own money and in an artisanal way”. That’s why he “thought he would never make a feature with a traditional narrative”. However, Priscyla’s previous contact with productions in this format facilitated the transition.

New format, new challenge

For Priscyla, “developing a script and a narrative without abandoning the format that became characteristic of what we were doing a decade ago” was a challenge. Renato added, “doing something with an experimental footprint and at the same narrative” scared, but at the same time motivated the production.

The two also pointed out as a challenge to work with a large team, as “although the functions were delimited, in practice everything was done in an eventually collaborative way. Shooting on film, with several actors, locations demands time, money and a lot of work”. However, everything went well and Priscyla told us that she was “very happy because her team was like a gift”. Renata Jardim, producer of The City of Abysses, was appointed by the two as responsible for bridging the gap between them and the people on the team.

Seventies and Eighties Aesthetics: the memory of authorial cinema

the city of the abysses

Asked about the similarity the film has with national cinema classics from the 1970s and 1980s, the pair told us about their aesthetic choices. “In the first feature, there’s a lot of wanting to put everything that we love and that influences us,” said Priscyla. Then she quoted Luiz Rosemberg Filho, the director to which the film was dedicated and completed, “there are choices that were conscious and others that were not”. Namely, the author says that she acted as a director, but also as a movie buff who wanted to honor those she admires.

There is in the film “a reference to Brazilian cinema from the 1970s/80s”, they said, but also to other multi-artists such as the poet Roberto Piva, the singer and songwriter Arrigo Barnabas and the filmmaker Andrea Tonacci, who lent them a camera to shoot two sequences. “The same camera the director used in Bang, Bang (1971), giving materiality to this feeling”. ‘

strong musical elements

Arrigo Verónica the city of the Abysses

Cinediário

Throughout the film, we are taken by various musical manifestations, whether through chants or recited poetry. The protagonist of the film, Gloria, is played by Veronica Valenttino band lead singer Veronica Decide Morrer and is on the scene alongside Arrigo.

According to Renato, the proposal was to “dialogue with different cinematographic genres, in a more inventive way, to break with expectations”. Priscyla added that this expectation, “of only one genre, is diluted in a film that is half police, half strange musical with experimental elements.

We were certainly curious about Barnabas’ participation and the directors contacted us that “he was initially invited to make the soundtrack, alongside Vitor Kisil, but then ended up appearing and butts. He later performed the song with Verónica, using his unmistakable style.” Renato told us that the “experimental dodecaphony present in the scene was fantastic to be witnessed”, besides “there is a strong sensitivity in him for seeing images and writing.” Pryscila emotionally reported that “it was amazing to see him composing in front of us, as we spoke something completely abstract and Arrigo converted it into poetry, lyrics and music.”

In the same way, the songs interpreted by the actors representing the immigrants were brought by themselves, according to the filmmakers, “what we asked was for them to sing something that reminds them of their land, their life, of some sad moments or happy and they brought those sensations and experiences to the film.

Diversity of ‘The City of the Abyss’ Cast

Lots of diversity in the cast of ‘The City of the Abyss’

Towards the end of the conversation, we asked Priscyla and Renato to talk to us about the casting of The City of Abysses and once again we noticed the emotion and collective relationship of the team. The film talks about trans women, immigrants, people who live on the fringes of society “so there is nothing fairer than building these characters based on the personal experiences of these people”, said Priscyla. For the director, “the exchange and listening space that was created valued the final product”, demonstrating how much her work sought to be fair and to look to the stories told, even if fictional.

Another prominent participation in the production is the priest Julius Lancellotti which has in its passage through the screen one of the most exciting lines. Interestingly in the script, the priest had “only a tiny sermon, so we looked for him and when we presented the proposal he opened the church doors for us to record”. The two said that they were initially concerned about Júlio’s participation because he was not an actor, as there were few analog reels to record. However, the priest was aware of this limitation and, even without a defined speech, he chose to “speak something from the heart”. As a result, one of the most beautiful sequences in the film and tears from behind the camera.

For those who haven’t watched the city of the abyss, the film will be screened at the festival of Camboriu Spa, on Show Crash and no London Festival.

A woman sits down at the table next to me in the cafe. She looks very professional: notebook, papers under her arm. The waitress comes to her. “A cappuccino, please,” she asks. Fati, the servant on duty, is not afraid of a little one. As a native of Molenbeek, she speaks every language she hears. “With milk or whipped cream?” asks Fati. “Cream please,” it became.

That’s when my autistic side starts to play. Everyone is a bit autistic, it seems, I also have a voice like that in my brain. And that voice says mordically that cappuccino must not be made with cream, but with milk foam, otherwise it is not cappuccino but a Viennese coffee! So, that’s out. I did not intervene, but discussed it afterwards with the waitress privately. She was absolutely right, but yes, “the customers, right?”

Today’s italomania makes everyone order cappuccino, but in a way that is actually Viennese coffee

The story begins in Vienna, where, according to folklore, coffee from the Ottoman Empire reached our western world. Drinking coffee was therefore established early on. The coachmen of the Fiakers, (the horse-drawn forerunners of the taxi), could have a regular hot drink in that continental climate over there. Because the coffee would not cool down too quickly, a layer of whipped cream was placed on top instead of adding milk to the coffee. This prevents the evaporation of the coffee and therefore also rapid cooling. So this is the original ‘Viennese coffee’, once very popular in Paris.

Meanwhile, in the warm interiors of Viennese cafes, the bourgeoisie ordered their coffee with milk. How much milk, there was a whole arsenal of words for that. We have that too: there is coffee with milk, but also milk with coffee. The Dutch speak of a ‘coffee latte’ when there is more milk in the cup than coffee. In our country that mixture is ‘Russian milk’ going to be called. What is Russian about warm milk with some coffee in it, no historian knows. The term ‘Russian milk’ is also unknown south of our national borders. A purely Belgian expression.

Fifty shades of brown
Anyway, our Viennese ordered their degree of desired milk in the coffee by naming the color of the brew: dark hazelnut, golden hazelnut or sometimes ‘Capuchin’. The Capuchins are a monastic order derived from the Franciscans, characterized by their brown robes and long beards. Capuchin is apparently popular as a variation on brown, because certain peas with a brown color are also called capuchins.

Milk foam
After Napoleon, the Austrian Habsburgs took possession of large parts of northern Italy. This is how Austrian soldiers and officials ended up in Milan and Venice. Where they forced their custom of coffee with milk in the local inns: this is how ‘kapuziner’ in the end ‘cappuccino’. The cup of milk foam with some cocoa powder was not there yet. It only came with the modern coffee machines for which the Italians are famous, well into the twentieth century. By chasing steam into the milk, it foams. That’s harder to get right than whipped cream, because if you steam milk too much, it’ll boil, and the froth will fail.

Viennese coffee is no longer in demand, today’s Italomania makes everyone order cappuccino, but then in a way that is actually Viennese coffee. The most important thing for Italians and autists is that you don’t order one after noon. Italians don’t do that! The lady in the cafe was lucky, she ordered her Viennese variant just before aperitif time. Tasty.

Fati, the servant on duty, is not afraid of a little one. As a native of Molenbeek, she speaks every language she hears. “With milk or whipped cream?” asks Fati. “Cream please,” it became.

That’s when my autistic side starts to play. Everyone is a bit autistic, it seems, I also have a voice like that in my brain. And that voice says mordically that cappuccino must not be made with cream, but with milk foam, otherwise it is not cappuccino but a Viennese coffee! So, that’s out. I did not intervene, but discussed it afterwards with the waitress privately. She was absolutely right, but yes, “the customers, right?”

Today’s italomania makes everyone order cappuccino, but in a way that is actually Viennese coffee

The story begins in Vienna, where, according to folklore, coffee from the Ottoman Empire reached our western world. Drinking coffee was therefore established early on. The coachmen of the Fiakers, (the horse-drawn forerunners of the taxi), could have a regular hot drink in that continental climate over there. Because the coffee would not cool down too quickly, a layer of whipped cream was placed on top instead of adding milk to the coffee. This prevents the evaporation of the coffee and therefore also rapid cooling. So this is the original ‘Viennese coffee’, once very popular in Paris.

Meanwhile, in the warm interiors of Viennese cafes, the bourgeoisie ordered their coffee with milk. How much milk, there was a whole arsenal of words for that. We have that too: there is coffee with milk, but also milk with coffee. The Dutch speak of a ‘coffee latte’ when there is more milk in the cup than coffee. In our country that mixture is ‘Russian milk’ going to be called. What is Russian about warm milk with some coffee in it, no historian knows. The term ‘Russian milk’ is also unknown south of our national borders. A purely Belgian expression.

Fifty shades of brown
Anyway, our Viennese ordered their degree of desired milk in the coffee by naming the color of the brew: dark hazelnut, golden hazelnut or sometimes ‘Capuchin’. The Capuchins are a monastic order derived from the Franciscans, characterized by their brown robes and long beards. Capuchin is apparently popular as a variation on brown, because certain peas with a brown color are also called capuchins.

Milk foam
After Napoleon, the Austrian Habsburgs took possession of large parts of northern Italy. This is how Austrian soldiers and officials ended up in Milan and Venice. Where they forced their custom of coffee with milk in the local inns: this is how ‘kapuziner’ in the end ‘cappuccino’. The cup of milk foam with some cocoa powder was not there yet. It only came with the modern coffee machines for which the Italians are famous, well into the twentieth century. By chasing steam into the milk, it foams. That’s harder to get right than whipped cream, because if you steam milk too much, it’ll boil, and the froth will fail.

Viennese coffee is no longer in demand, today’s Italomania makes everyone order cappuccino, but then in a way that is actually Viennese coffee. The most important thing for Italians and autists is that you don’t order one after noon. Italians don’t do that! The lady in the cafe was lucky, she ordered her Viennese variant just before aperitif time. Tasty.
