The tabloid, close to Labor, Daily Mirror, at the origin of a large part of the revelations, counted “at least fifteen parties” since the start of the pandemic, especially in Downing Street but also in Whitehall (the adjoining ministerial buildings, in the heart of the Westminster district). Boris Johnson, of whom at least two dozen Tory MPs are calling for the departure « In the name of God, go! », launched a party baron, David Davies, on Wednesday January 19 –, is accused of assisting “at least four events”. The only one to which he admitted his presence is that of May 20, 2020. It was a “BYOB” (« Bring your own bottle », “bring your own bottle”). The invitations had been sent by his chief of staff, Martin Reynolds.

In his email, published by the ITV channel on January 10, Mr. Reynolds offered the guests to “enjoy the good weather and share a drink in a socially distanced way in Downing Street Gardens”. According to unnamed sources, cited by British media, around 40 people attended the party, including Mr Johnson and his fiancée Carrie – who became his wife in 2021.

“No one told me it was against the rules”

One hour before this « BYOB party », the Minister of Culture, Oliver Dowden, explained, from 9 Downing Street (the building where the press room is located), that the British were not allowed to meet more than two outside. Boris Johnson apologized on January 12 in the House of Commons: “When I went into the garden, just after 6 p.m., to thank the teams before returning to work at my office twenty-five minutes later, I implicitly thought it was a work event. »

“No one told me it was against the rules,” he added on Sky News on January 18. In a blog post published the day before, Dominic Cummings, his ex-special adviser who has become his worst enemy, assures us that the leader “lied to Parliament” (which would violate the ministerial code and force him to resign). Mr Johnson has reportedly been informed in advance that the party is violating the rules on confinement, Cummings said..

Debió pasar medio siglo para que, después de tres versiones mudas dirigidas por realizadores varios (una curiosamente llamada When Macbeth came to Snakevilla), el cine se las viera finalmente cara a cara con el hombre que, en la ficción, reinó sobre Escocia entre 1040 y 1057. Fue Orson Welles, como era de esperarse, quien con parte del elenco del Mercury Theatre se puso en 1948 al frente de la primera versión plenamente cinematográfica de la quinta tragedia de William Shakespeare, estrenada en 1606. Para ello el hombretón de 1 metro 90 debió convencer, en la primera de sus artimañas profesionales, a los dueños de la Republic, un sello pequeño, dedicado a producir westerns del montón. Los de la Republic querían algo de prestigio a cambio de tiros, y el creador de El ciudadano se los dio.

Pero el sello se manejaba con presupuestos bastante menesterosos, por lo cual el hombre cuya contextura hacía honor a su nombre de pila, debió arreglarse con media docena de construcciones de (cartón) piedra, un elenco de desconocidos y 23 días de rodaje, menos de la mitad de lo que se estilaba en aquellos tiempos. “Si hubiera tenido un día más hubiera quedado mucho mejor”, bromeó el urso humano frente a Peter Bogdanovich. La primera opción de Welles para Lady Macbeth fue Vivien Leigh. Pero había un problema. La estrella de Lo que el viento se llevó estaba casada, y su marido era Laurence Olivier, algo así como “el dueño” de Shakespeare en el Hollywood de la época. Reculando, el autor de Sed de mal debió recurrir a la debutante Jeanette Nolan, miembro del Mercury Theatre, y el resto del elenco estuvo integrado por nombres que sólo los memoriosos del viejo Hollywood hoy recuerdan: Roddy McDowall, Dan O’Herlihy y Alan Napier.

Como de costumbre, el creador de La dama de Shanghai (su obra inmediatamente previa) supo no sólo arreglarse con lo que tenía, sino sacarle todo el jugo posible. Con unos pilotes de cartón armó las estructuras circulares de Stonehenge, ruinas paleolíticas que reubicaron la obra de Shakespeare en un paraje primitivo. Dada la pequeñez del estudio, los ejércitos no podían cabalgar más que unos metros en redondo, pero eso tampoco fue óbice: el avance del bosque de Birnam sobre Dunsinane tiene una cualidad irreal, fantasmagórica, alucinada. Para no hablar del mundo cavernario en el que parece asentarse el reinado de Macbeth, oscuro y húmedo, posible antecedente de la famosa secuencia de las alcantarillas de El tercer hombre, que según todos dicen fue idea de Welles y que se filmó al año siguiente de Macbeth. La humedad, el encierro, el carácter nocturnal y las gruesas sombras dan al Macbeth de Welles un clima pesadillesco, en sincronía con los malos sueños de los que el barón de Glamis no puede desprenderse por las noches. Otra utilización inteligente de las condiciones de producción: el reducido tamaño del estudio resulta esencial para ese sofoco, que como todos sabemos es menos físico que moral.

Detalle interesante. Dubitativo, acosado por sus fantasmas, “demasiado humano”, Macbeth es el menos wellesiano de los personajes de Welles, que como se sabe eran siempre bigger than life. Pero si hay un hallazgo brillante que Welles le impone a Shakespeare es el del muñeco de barro que representa al rey asesino, y que las tres brujas –que van punteando el relato, como verdaderas demiurgas– moldean, variante herética de la Biblia y de la leyenda judía del Golem, que pone a Shakespeare al borde mismo del vudú.

Noh a Macbeth

Una década más tarde el cine volvió a hacer honor a la parábola shakesperiana sobre la ambición, con otra rendición que no cedió un ápice al teatro filmado (algo que no puede decirse del Hamlet de Olivier). En 1957, Akira Kurosawa comprendió que el estado de anarquía y desangramientos sucesorios de la Escocia del siglo XI se correspondía con los de los siglos de guerras feudales en su país, iniciadas a mediados del XV y conocidas, justamente, como la Era del País de la Guerra. La acción central toma lugar en el llamado Castillo de la Red de Araña, ubicado a la vera del bosque homónimo, y ése es también el título original de ésta, la primera adaptación de Shakespeare hecha por el realizador de Ran (su otra trasposición shakesperiana). Pero ojo, que en ninguna de ambas los créditos dan cuenta de esa deuda.

A Kurosawa, la conversión no le cuesta nada. Si bien en el momento de rodar Trono de sangre había filmado una sola película de samuráis (la más famosa de todas, Los siete samuráis), fue aquí donde el autor de Rashomon descubrió que las cabalgatas como ráfagas, la secuenciación enérgica, los inesperados ingresos de personajes en el plano, la severidad marcial, las líneas oblicuas para alinear a los guerreros, las coreografías de acción y los cortes certeros (de montaje y de los otros) habían sido hechos para él. El rey Duncan de la original es aquí Tsuzuki, el Señor del castillo, dos de cuyos comandantes de confianza son Washizu (émulo de Macbeth, interpretado por Toshiro Mifune) y Miki (equivalente de Banquo). No se lucha contra los noruegos sino contra otros shogunes, y la acción se ve desencadenada, como en el original, por un espíritu sobrenatural. En la cultura japonesa las brujas son menos frecuentes que los fantasmas, por lo cual en este caso se trata de una de ellos, que, como el Destino, hace girar y girar su rueda de hilandera, en medio de una suerte de huevo cegador de tan blanco. Por otra trasposición cultural, este fantasma no aparece como un ser maligno sino como una suerte de sabio, que en lugar de condenar a Macbeth y Banquo parecería advertirles del peligro que se cierne sobre ellos. De poco le servirá.

Tan desentendida del pentámetro yámbico como Welles, la anécdota de Trono de sangre respeta básicamente la del original, con una ventaja inestimable: Asaji (Isuzu Yamada) es la mejor Lady Macbeth que haya dado el cine. Más cargada de maquillaje que una estrella de j-pop y de rostro tan inescrutable como indica el teatro noh –en el que Kurosawa halló inspiración– Asaji se mantiene sentada, inmóvil, en el centro del cuarto nupcial, mientras vuelca en el oído de su marido, con vocecita casi inaudible, la idea de que más vale empezar a matar gente, antes de que lo maten. Luego se incorpora, dulcemente, y se marcha haciendo sisear el kimono, con desplazamientos más de sirena que de mujer humana. En un gran momento, se dirige a una puerta abierta y la cámara, tomándola de atrás, la deja hundirse en el negro absoluto de la noche, de donde emergerá más tarde con dos hermosas dagas. Otro gran gesto estético de AK es dejar toda la escena del crimen fuera de campo, como queriendo decir “¿Vieron que si quiero también puedo hacer teatro?”

Tal como indica el canon trágico, y tal como lo hizo reiteradamente a lo largo de su obra (en Ran, sobre todo), Kurosawa pone la entropía humana en el marco o como desencadenante de un estado de conmoción de los elementos, hechos de ventarrones, nubes de polvo, nieblas y espesas tormentas (¡Atención, siglo XXI!). No es un rey el asesinado, es el cosmos entero. La escena más famosa es la final, cuando sus propios hombres se rebelan contra Washizu (la “máscara” feroz de Mifune proviene también del noh), haciendo llover sobre él una tempestad de flechas, que va tejiendo una red metálica a su alrededor. Una red de araña, como la que da nombre al castillo que el traidor usurpó y donde va a perecer.

El Macbeth de la sangre

Lo que siempre se dijo del Macbeth de Roman Polanski es que era eso, o el suicidio. En 1969 la “familia” Manson había asesinado a cuchilladas a la mujer de Polanski, Sharon Tate, que portaba un embarazo casi a término. Tras eso, el realizador de El bebé de Rosemary, a quien esa película había elevado en 1968 a la triple cima del éxito, la consideración artística y la popularidad, se retiró del cine. Volvió dos años más tarde, con lo que a la larga sería la primera de su larga serie de adaptaciones de obras literarias y teatrales, muchas de ellas de autores consumados. “Si no hago correr sangre simbólica va a ser peor”, parece haberse dicho Polanski, y eso es lo que caracteriza la versión coescrita junto al dramaturgo Kenneth Tynan.

Paramount, Universal y la Metro prefirieron hacerse a un lado, tal vez temiendo alguna clase de maldición. El que no tuvo ningún problema fue Hugh Heffner, para quien Sharon Tate había posado en Playboy, y fue finalmente él quien produjo la película. Contradiciendo el canon que asocia a Macbeth, su esposa y las brujas con la niebla y la noche cerrada, la versión-Polanski transcurre en buena medida a pleno sol. Como Tess, La muerte y la doncella, Oliver Twist o Un dios salvaje, el Macbeth de Polanski es académico, respetuoso del original, con todos los trajes, parques y castillos en su lugar. Salvo un par de curiosidades, producto de una investigación historiográfica emprendida por el realizador y su coguionista. Durante su soliloquio en estado de sonambulismo, Lady Macbeth aparece desnuda (detalle con el que Heffner no habrá tenido ningún inconveniente), y además, cuando los invitados se quedan a pasar la noche en el castillo de Macbeth, lo hacen acostándose directamente sobre el piso o entre el heno, junto a los animales. Costumbre que Tynan jura que allá por el siglo XI era cierta.

Jon Finch y Francesca Annis son seguramente los Macbeth & Sra. más flojos de todas las versiones conocidas, dando la sensación de que están más preocupados por la salud de su ganado que por haber asesinado al rey. De todos modos, a la hora de matar vaya si lo hacen, con abundancia de efluvios de color rojo. Lo contrario de Kurosawa: mientras éste elige no mostrar las escenas más violentas, Polanski lo hace con generosidad. O por necesidad, más probablemente.

Pulp Fiction Siglo XVII

“Fue una idea de Frances”, reconoce Joel Coen en relación con su primer intento en solitario, tras una carrera de casi 40 años y cerca de veinte títulos junto a su hermano Ethan. Frances es Frances McDormand, su esposa desde 1984, ganadora del Oscar el año pasado por Nomadland y Lady Macbeth aquí. “Quería hacer Shakespeare para las personas que no quieren ver a Shakespeare, o que incluso podrían sentirse intimidadas por él”, aseguró Joel Coen ante el periódico británico The Guardian. “Pero quería preservar el texto, porque esa es la melodía de la cosa, y quería descubrir cómo obtener el ritmo que atraviesa todo el asunto sin descanso, como una película de asesinatos”. Bueno, no habrá policías ni investigaciones, pero es verdad que entre otras cosas, Macbeth (ver crítica aparte) es eso.

Coen va más allá y arriesga que la obra de Shakespeare es la primera película (¿?) de suspenso. ¿Suspenso por qué? ¿Descubrirán finalmente quién es el asesino? Si fuera por eso, Hamlet la precede. En cualquier caso, copa de gin de por medio en un coqueto hotel boutique londinense, pueden decirse cosas así. Y con dos copas, “es asombroso cómo esta obra prefigura los tropos del pulp noir del siglo XX”. ¿Una preanunciación de Pacto de sangre, con Macbeth anticipando el personaje de Fred McMurray, y Barbara Stanwyck como una Lady Macbeth-araña de cadenita en el tobillo? En realidad, la Phyllis Dietrichson de Pacto de sangre es, aunque parezca imposible, más mala que su antecesora: mientras ésta convence a su marido de defender “el negocio familiar”, la rubia de James Cain usa al crédulo en su propio y exclusivo beneficio.

“Ésta es una película que no le interesaba a Ethan, por eso decidí hacerla solo”, continúa Coen. ¿Cómo la hizo? En principio, abstrayéndola de tiempo y espacio, con vestimentas atemporales, palacios que consisten apenas en ventanas, arcos, dinteles, algún que otro pasillo. No usa el blanco y negro de alta definición para generar contrastes de luces y sombras, como Welles y Kurosawa, sino una luz abundante y pareja, con eventuales chorros cegadores cayendo sobre algún hemiciclo. El Macbeth de Joel Coen tiende a la abstracción, al vacío temporal, a un despojamiento casi absoluto. Todo ello para que el drama quede al desnudo, podría conjeturarse. Desnudo, a distancia y a baja temperatura. Pero una cosa es desdramatizar cuando el protagonista es un tipo elusivo, incognoscible, como el de El hombre que nunca estuvo allí, Un hombre serio e Inside Llewyn Davis, y otra cuando se trata de un trágico torturado por la culpa, la paranoia y los malos sueños.

El rey Duncan de la original es aquí Tsuzuki, el Señor del castillo, dos de cuyos comandantes de confianza son Washizu (émulo de Macbeth, interpretado por Toshiro Mifune) y Miki (equivalente de Banquo). No se lucha contra los noruegos sino contra otros shogunes, y la acción se ve desencadenada, como en el original, por un espíritu sobrenatural. En la cultura japonesa las brujas son menos frecuentes que los fantasmas, por lo cual en este caso se trata de una de ellos, que, como el Destino, hace girar y girar su rueda de hilandera, en medio de una suerte de huevo cegador de tan blanco. Por otra trasposición cultural, este fantasma no aparece como un ser maligno sino como una suerte de sabio, que en lugar de condenar a Macbeth y Banquo parecería advertirles del peligro que se cierne sobre ellos. De poco le servirá.

Tan desentendida del pentámetro yámbico como Welles, la anécdota de Trono de sangre respeta básicamente la del original, con una ventaja inestimable: Asaji (Isuzu Yamada) es la mejor Lady Macbeth que haya dado el cine. Más cargada de maquillaje que una estrella de j-pop y de rostro tan inescrutable como indica el teatro noh –en el que Kurosawa halló inspiración– Asaji se mantiene sentada, inmóvil, en el centro del cuarto nupcial, mientras vuelca en el oído de su marido, con vocecita casi inaudible, la idea de que más vale empezar a matar gente, antes de que lo maten. Luego se incorpora, dulcemente, y se marcha haciendo sisear el kimono, con desplazamientos más de sirena que de mujer humana. En un gran momento, se dirige a una puerta abierta y la cámara, tomándola de atrás, la deja hundirse en el negro absoluto de la noche, de donde emergerá más tarde con dos hermosas dagas. Otro gran gesto estético de AK es dejar toda la escena del crimen fuera de campo, como queriendo decir “¿Vieron que si quiero también puedo hacer teatro?”

Tal como indica el canon trágico, y tal como lo hizo reiteradamente a lo largo de su obra (en Ran, sobre todo), Kurosawa pone la entropía humana en el marco o como desencadenante de un estado de conmoción de los elementos, hechos de ventarrones, nubes de polvo, nieblas y espesas tormentas (¡Atención, siglo XXI!). No es un rey el asesinado, es el cosmos entero. La escena más famosa es la final, cuando sus propios hombres se rebelan contra Washizu (la “máscara” feroz de Mifune proviene también del noh), haciendo llover sobre él una tempestad de flechas, que va tejiendo una red metálica a su alrededor. Una red de araña, como la que da nombre al castillo que el traidor usurpó y donde va a perecer.

El Macbeth de la sangre

Lo que siempre se dijo del Macbeth de Roman Polanski es que era eso, o el suicidio. En 1969 la “familia” Manson había asesinado a cuchilladas a la mujer de Polanski, Sharon Tate, que portaba un embarazo casi a término. Tras eso, el realizador de El bebé de Rosemary, a quien esa película había elevado en 1968 a la triple cima del éxito, la consideración artística y la popularidad, se retiró del cine. Volvió dos años más tarde, con lo que a la larga sería la primera de su larga serie de adaptaciones de obras literarias y teatrales, muchas de ellas de autores consumados. “Si no hago correr sangre simbólica va a ser peor”, parece haberse dicho Polanski, y eso es lo que caracteriza la versión coescrita junto al dramaturgo Kenneth Tynan.

Paramount, Universal y la Metro prefirieron hacerse a un lado, tal vez temiendo alguna clase de maldición. El que no tuvo ningún problema fue Hugh Heffner, para quien Sharon Tate había posado en Playboy, y fue finalmente él quien produjo la película. Contradiciendo el canon que asocia a Macbeth, su esposa y las brujas con la niebla y la noche cerrada, la versión-Polanski transcurre en buena medida a pleno sol. Como Tess, La muerte y la doncella, Oliver Twist o Un dios salvaje, el Macbeth de Polanski es académico, respetuoso del original, con todos los trajes, parques y castillos en su lugar. Salvo un par de curiosidades, producto de una investigación historiográfica emprendida por el realizador y su coguionista. Durante su soliloquio en estado de sonambulismo, Lady Macbeth aparece desnuda (detalle con el que Heffner no habrá tenido ningún inconveniente), y además, cuando los invitados se quedan a pasar la noche en el castillo de Macbeth, lo hacen acostándose directamente sobre el piso o entre el heno, junto a los animales. Costumbre que Tynan jura que allá por el siglo XI era cierta.

Jon Finch y Francesca Annis son seguramente los Macbeth & Sra. más flojos de todas las versiones conocidas, dando la sensación de que están más preocupados por la salud de su ganado que por haber asesinado al rey. De todos modos, a la hora de matar vaya si lo hacen, con abundancia de efluvios de color rojo. Lo contrario de Kurosawa: mientras éste elige no mostrar las escenas más violentas, Polanski lo hace con generosidad. O por necesidad, más probablemente.

Pulp Fiction Siglo XVII

“Fue una idea de Frances”, reconoce Joel Coen en relación con su primer intento en solitario, tras una carrera de casi 40 años y cerca de veinte títulos junto a su hermano Ethan. Frances es Frances McDormand, su esposa desde 1984, ganadora del Oscar el año pasado por Nomadland y Lady Macbeth aquí. “Quería hacer Shakespeare para las personas que no quieren ver a Shakespeare, o que incluso podrían sentirse intimidadas por él”, aseguró Joel Coen ante el periódico británico The Guardian. “Pero quería preservar el texto, porque esa es la melodía de la cosa, y quería descubrir cómo obtener el ritmo que atraviesa todo el asunto sin descanso, como una película de asesinatos”. Bueno, no habrá policías ni investigaciones, pero es verdad que entre otras cosas, Macbeth (ver crítica aparte) es eso.

Coen va más allá y arriesga que la obra de Shakespeare es la primera película (¿?) de suspenso. ¿Suspenso por qué? ¿Descubrirán finalmente quién es el asesino? Si fuera por eso, Hamlet la precede. En cualquier caso, copa de gin de por medio en un coqueto hotel boutique londinense, pueden decirse cosas así. Y con dos copas, “es asombroso cómo esta obra prefigura los tropos del pulp noir del siglo XX”. ¿Una preanunciación de Pacto de sangre, con Macbeth anticipando el personaje de Fred McMurray, y Barbara Stanwyck como una Lady Macbeth-araña de cadenita en el tobillo? En realidad, la Phyllis Dietrichson de Pacto de sangre es, aunque parezca imposible, más mala que su antecesora: mientras ésta convence a su marido de defender “el negocio familiar”, la rubia de James Cain usa al crédulo en su propio y exclusivo beneficio.

“Ésta es una película que no le interesaba a Ethan, por eso decidí hacerla solo”, continúa Coen. ¿Cómo la hizo? En principio, abstrayéndola de tiempo y espacio, con vestimentas atemporales, palacios que consisten apenas en ventanas, arcos, dinteles, algún que otro pasillo. No usa el blanco y negro de alta definición para generar contrastes de luces y sombras, como Welles y Kurosawa, sino una luz abundante y pareja, con eventuales chorros cegadores cayendo sobre algún hemiciclo. El Macbeth de Joel Coen tiende a la abstracción, al vacío temporal, a un despojamiento casi absoluto. Todo ello para que el drama quede al desnudo, podría conjeturarse. Desnudo, a distancia y a baja temperatura. Pero una cosa es desdramatizar cuando el protagonista es un tipo elusivo, incognoscible, como el de El hombre que nunca estuvo allí, Un hombre serio e Inside Llewyn Davis, y otra cuando se trata de un trágico torturado por la culpa, la paranoia y los malos sueños.

Highlights

  • People can talk a lot when they are upset.
  • Maybe he can say he doesn’t like it.
  • But stay with him during that time.

This time living desk: Life does not always go the same way. Sometimes it will be good, sometimes it will be bad. Life must be taken forward by accepting the lowly on this.

But still upset. That upset has an effect on life. Relationships are not excluded from the list of problems. Being upset also has a huge effect on the relationship. So this time is to be very careful.

Experts say that bad moods can happen in a person’s life. In this case, if your partner is upset for any reason, then a lot of responsibility falls on your neck at that time. Then you must keep these few things in mind.

Not to be by his side
People can talk a lot when they are upset. Maybe he can say he doesn’t like it. But stay with him during that time. Because this is the time when he needs you the most. So if the partner is upset, the real job is not to leave him but to hold him.

Don’t talk
By talking, the great war of the world has stopped. So you have to talk to your partner during this bad time. Ask him out well if he is no longer absorbed in the connection. As well as your own words. Talking like this will make you feel bad. So no more worries.

One thing over and over again
Once asked, did not say. Asked a second time, there is no answer. Don’t say the same thing over and over again. Repeatedly saying the same thing can make him even more upset. Then another problem will appear. So try not to bother him as much as possible during this time. Then he will be fine. You will be fine too.

Repeatedly told to eat
Many people do not want to eat well when they are upset. In all such cases, there is no point in repeatedly calling for food. This may make the partner more angry. So do this as little as possible during this time.

Be careful
He is not in a good mood. If you take care of this again, the problem will increase several times. So get rid of this habit today. Rather stay by his side.

With this campaign at the latest, the crypto world is making its way into the time-honored banking establishment. The crypto derivatives exchange Bitmex has now announced that it is buying up one of the oldest German banks that already has crypto products in its portfolio. The Bitcoin exchange stated that the reason for the unusual purchase was that it hoped to secure European market shares in this way. BitMEX recently has its own token and airdrop announced and has been in all the media for a few days.

Bitmex recently made a name for itself when it launched its own exchange token. In the short term, the crypto exchange would also like to offer spot products. Bitmex first opened its doors in 2014 and by 2020 it was able to hold its own as one of the leading crypto providers in the volatile market. As of 2021, other market participants secured larger shares of the pie, with the result that Bitmex had to step back. In order to regain the lost market share, Bitmex is expanding and would now like to add other crypto products to its portfolio. Bitmex is now able to do this, among other things, because it will acquire the traditional bank Heydt, which is one of the oldest banks in Germany. According to Bitmex, this should bring the crypto and fiat world together under one roof.

Von der Heydt Bank

No sooner said than done: The Bitmex subsidiary BXM Operations, represented by its CEOs Alexander Höptner and Stephan Lutz, sealed the deal with the current owner of Von der Heydt Bank based in Munich, Dietrich von Boetticher. The sale should be dry and dry by mid-2022, but without having it approved by BaFin. The traditional bank was founded in 1754. Alex Höptner had the following to say about the takeover:

“By combining Bankhaus von der Heydt’s regulated digital assets expertise with the crypto innovation and scale of BitMEX, I believe we can create a regulated powerhouse for crypto products in the heart of Europe.”

It remains to be seen whether the planned success as well as the recapture of market share and the expansion of business for Bitmex through the takeover of the bank will come true. In fact, this is one of the first transactions of its kind, and we’ll probably see a lot more of it in the future.

  • করোনার ইমিউনিটি বেশিদিন কাজ করছে না।
  • করোনা নিজেকে বারবার বদলে নিচ্ছে।
  • ফলে আগের ভ্যারিয়েন্টের থেকে পাওয়া ইমিউনিটি হয়তো এবার কাজ করছে না।

এই সময় জীবনযাপন ডেস্ক: করোনার (Corona) নানা সমস্যায় জর্জরিত আমরা। এক্ষেত্রে এক সমস্যা থেকে ওঠা হল কিনা দেখা দিল অপর একটি সমস্যা। এখন দেখা যাচ্ছে, আমাদের আশপাশের বহু মানুষ একবার করোনা থেকে সেরে ওঠার পর ফের করোনায় আক্রান্ত হচ্ছেন। বিশেষত, তৃতীয় ঢেউ চলার সময় থেকেই এই চিত্রটা আরও বেশি করে সামনে আসছে। আর করোনার এই রূপ দেখেই বেশ চিন্তায় রয়েছেন একাংশের বিশেষজ্ঞ।

করোনার রি ইনফেকশন কী?
আমেরিকার সেন্টার ফর ডিজিজ কন্ট্রোল অ্যান্ড প্রিভেনশন (CDC) বলছে, করোনা ভাইরাসে আক্রান্ত হয়ে সেরে ওঠার পর ফের ওই একই ভাইরাস দ্বারা আক্রান্ত হলে বলা যেতে পারে কোভিড রি ইনফেকশন (Corona Reinfection)। করোনার ক্ষেত্রে এই বিষয়টা বেশি করে দেখা যাচ্ছে।

এক্ষেত্রে কলকাতার আমরি হাসপাতালের বিশিষ্ট মেডিসিন বিশেষজ্ঞ ডা: রুদ্রজিৎ পাল বলেন, কোনও একটি ভাইরাস আক্রমণ করলে রোগ থেকে সেরে ওঠার পর আমাদের শরীরে তৈরি হয় একটি ইমিউনিটি। এই ইমিউনিটি পরেরবার সেই ভাইরাস আক্রমণ করলে আমাদের রোগ থেকে বাঁচায়। অর্থাৎ এই ইমিউনিটি হল রোগ থেকে বাঁচানোর প্রধান কারিগর। তবে অনেসময় নানা কারণে শরীরে রোগ প্রতিরোধ ক্ষমতা আমাদের সেই ভাইরাস থেকে সুরক্ষা দিতে পারে না। তখন রোগ হয়।

করোনার একাধিকবার সংক্রমণ

এমনটা বারবারই দেখা গিয়েছে একবার করোনায় আক্রান্ত হওয়ার পরও মানুষ ফের সেই একই সমস্যায় আক্রান্ত হচ্ছেন। এক্ষেত্রে বিভিন্ন গবেষণা বলছে, যাঁরা আগে এই ভাইরাসে আক্রান্ত হয়েছেন তাঁদেরই এবারের করোনা ঢেউতে বেশি সংখ্যায় আক্রান্ত হতে দেখা যাচ্ছে। অর্থাৎ করোনার ইমিউনিটি বেশিদিন কাজ করছে না।

কেন বারংবার সংক্রমণ হচ্ছে?
বিশিষ্ট মেডিসিন বিশেষজ্ঞ ডা: আশিস মিত্র বলেন, করোনা হওয়ার পর শরীরে একটি ইমিউনিটি তৈরি হয় ঠিকই। তবে সেই ইমিউনিটি বেশিদিন কাজ করে না। মাস ছয়েকের মধ্যেই সেই ইমিউনিটি গায়েব হয়ে যাচ্ছে। ফলে মানুষের ফের সংক্রমণ হচ্ছে।
ডা: রুদ্রজিৎ পাল এই প্রসঙ্গে জানান, এই ভাইরাস খুবই নতুন। তাই এর সম্বন্ধে সব তথ্য জানা এখনই সম্ভব নয়। তবে এখানে দুটি বিষয় একত্রে কাজ করছে। প্রথমত, করোনার ইমিউনিটি শরীরে বেশিদিন থাকছে না। আর দ্বিতীয়ত হল, করোনা নিজেকে বারবার বদলে নিচ্ছে। ফলে আগের ভ্যারিয়েন্টের থেকে পাওয়া ইমিউনিটি হয়তো এবার কাজ করছে না।

কতবার হতে পারে সংক্রমণ?
পশ্চিমবঙ্গ করোনা টাক্স ফোর্সের সদস্য ডা: জ্যোতির্ময় পাল বলেন, এভাবে কোনও তথ্য এখনও সামনে আসেনি। তবে একাধিকবার এই সংক্রমণ হওয়া সম্ভব। তাই সতর্ক থাকুন।
একই কথা বললেন ডা: রুদ্রজিৎ পাল। তাঁর কথায়, এই ভাইরাস এতটাই নতুন যে এই সম্পর্কে নির্দিষ্ট করে অনেক তথ্যই নেই। তাই এভাবে কতবার ইনফেকশন হবে বলা যাবে না।

কী ভাবে নিজেকে সতর্ক রাখবেন?
ডা: জ্যোতির্ময় পাল জানান, সাধারণত একাধিকবার সংক্রমণের ক্ষেত্রে রোগ ততটা জটিল হয় না। কারণ আগেরবারের তৈরি হওয়া ইমিউনিটি শরীরকে বাঁচায়। তবে এক্ষেত্রেও সতর্ক থাকা জরুরি। নিজেকে করোনার হাত থেকে বাঁচাতে মাস্ক, স্যানিটাইজর, ভ্যাকসিন হল মূল হাতিয়ার। এই নিয়ম মেনে চললেই সমস্যা থেকে মুক্তি পাওয়া সম্ভব।

এমনটা বারবারই দেখা গিয়েছে একবার করোনায় আক্রান্ত হওয়ার পরও মানুষ ফের সেই একই সমস্যায় আক্রান্ত হচ্ছেন। এক্ষেত্রে বিভিন্ন গবেষণা বলছে, যাঁরা আগে এই ভাইরাসে আক্রান্ত হয়েছেন তাঁদেরই এবারের করোনা ঢেউতে বেশি সংখ্যায় আক্রান্ত হতে দেখা যাচ্ছে। অর্থাৎ করোনার ইমিউনিটি বেশিদিন কাজ করছে না।

কেন বারংবার সংক্রমণ হচ্ছে?
বিশিষ্ট মেডিসিন বিশেষজ্ঞ ডা: আশিস মিত্র বলেন, করোনা হওয়ার পর শরীরে একটি ইমিউনিটি তৈরি হয় ঠিকই। তবে সেই ইমিউনিটি বেশিদিন কাজ করে না। মাস ছয়েকের মধ্যেই সেই ইমিউনিটি গায়েব হয়ে যাচ্ছে। ফলে মানুষের ফের সংক্রমণ হচ্ছে।
ডা: রুদ্রজিৎ পাল এই প্রসঙ্গে জানান, এই ভাইরাস খুবই নতুন। তাই এর সম্বন্ধে সব তথ্য জানা এখনই সম্ভব নয়। তবে এখানে দুটি বিষয় একত্রে কাজ করছে। প্রথমত, করোনার ইমিউনিটি শরীরে বেশিদিন থাকছে না। আর দ্বিতীয়ত হল, করোনা নিজেকে বারবার বদলে নিচ্ছে। ফলে আগের ভ্যারিয়েন্টের থেকে পাওয়া ইমিউনিটি হয়তো এবার কাজ করছে না।

কতবার হতে পারে সংক্রমণ?
পশ্চিমবঙ্গ করোনা টাক্স ফোর্সের সদস্য ডা: জ্যোতির্ময় পাল বলেন, এভাবে কোনও তথ্য এখনও সামনে আসেনি। তবে একাধিকবার এই সংক্রমণ হওয়া সম্ভব। তাই সতর্ক থাকুন।
একই কথা বললেন ডা: রুদ্রজিৎ পাল। তাঁর কথায়, এই ভাইরাস এতটাই নতুন যে এই সম্পর্কে নির্দিষ্ট করে অনেক তথ্যই নেই। তাই এভাবে কতবার ইনফেকশন হবে বলা যাবে না।

কী ভাবে নিজেকে সতর্ক রাখবেন?
ডা: জ্যোতির্ময় পাল জানান, সাধারণত একাধিকবার সংক্রমণের ক্ষেত্রে রোগ ততটা জটিল হয় না। কারণ আগেরবারের তৈরি হওয়া ইমিউনিটি শরীরকে বাঁচায়। তবে এক্ষেত্রেও সতর্ক থাকা জরুরি। নিজেকে করোনার হাত থেকে বাঁচাতে মাস্ক, স্যানিটাইজর, ভ্যাকসিন হল মূল হাতিয়ার। এই নিয়ম মেনে চললেই সমস্যা থেকে মুক্তি পাওয়া সম্ভব।

Highlights

  • Sumon Mukherjee is making a film based on ‘Puppet Dance Itikatha’ written by Manik Bandyopadhyay.
  • After about five years, Sumon plans to bring a work to the big screen for the audience.
  • The film stars Abir Chatterjee, Parambrata Chatterjee, Ananya Chatterjee and Jaya Ehsan.

Bhaswati Ghosh

Herbert in 2005. ‘Chaturanga’ in 2006. ‘Mahanagar-Kolkata’ in 2009. ‘Kangal Malsat’ in 2013. ‘Last Poem’ in 2014. And ‘unfinished’ in 2016. This is the list of director’s Bengali films. Whenever Sumon Mukherjee makes a picture, it makes the viewer think. Do not take pictures frequently. Give time to the preparation period. Then give the viewer a picture to remember. This is the first time Sumon is ready in Corona weather to make a new Bengali film. After about five years, Sumon plans to bring a work to the big screen for the audience. Earlier, he had given some time to Hindi project.

Shantanu Maitra did playback in the movie ‘Bangabandhu’

Manik Bandyopadhyay has chosen ‘Puppet Dance Itikatha’ as the basis of the film. Literary Manik Bandyopadhyay wrote this novel at the very beginning of his writing life. The central character is a doctor. The story unfolds in the context of the complex social relationships that flow between the different characters in the novel. There is love, estrangement, envy and mutual sympathy. Why is this story relevant? In fact, with great humility, the author here has spoken out against the social system in which one class of people tries or is able to keep the other class of people as puppets.

eisamaySrijit wanted to make a Hindi remake of Hemlock Society with Irfan!

The casting of the photo is amazing. In 2016, National Award winning actress Ananya Chatterjee was seen in the film ‘Top’. Why Ananya doesn’t get a good character in Bengali film is practiced inside Tollywood. He is in this picture. Another actress Jaya Ehsan will also be in the film. Two famous Bengali actors Abir Chatterjee and Parambrata Chatterjee will be seen together again in the film. They have worked together before in films like ‘Bastushaap’ or ‘Shahjahan Regency’. Outdoor shooting of this film is in full swing in Santiniketan.

From the subject selection to the casting, there is no doubt that this picture is going to be studied from all angles.

September 2, 2022: That’s the day that Gil-Galad, Elendil and Númenor start becoming household names. Today Amazon Studios announced the title for its long-awaited $465 million Lord of the Rings streaming series: The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. 

Amazon released a teaser trailer to debut the title, and reveal a bit more of the mood board:

While the show was known to be set in Middle Earth’s Second Age, showrunners also confirmed the focus in a statement.

“This is a title that we imagine could live on the spine of a book next to J.R.R. Tolkien’s other classics,” said said showrunners J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay. “The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. Until now, audiences have only seen on-screen the story of the One Ring –but before there was one, there were many… and we’re excited to share the epic story of them all.”

For Tolkien buffs, this opens up seasons and seasons of storytelling. Shortish version: After laying low following the defeat of his master Morgoth in the First Age, Sauron reëmerges and deceives humans and elves into thinking he’s not so bad (Galadriel tried to warn them but they didn’t listen!). With the aid of Elven wright Celebrimbor, he forges 17 rings for elves, human and dwarves while secretly forging the One Ring to control the other rings of power. After defeat by a combined army, Sauron once again lays low, only to eventually trick the egotistical ruler of the human kingdom Númenor, Ar-Pharazôn, into attempting to conquer the Undying lands of Aman, with disastrous results. Finally, the Last Alliance of Men and Elves gathers, led by elvish king Gil-Galad and Aragorn ancestor Elendil, to invade Mordor. And then all hell breaks loose.

So yeah, lots of material here!

The teaser trailer is nice, with a woman reciting the poem about the rings in the Common Tongue:

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Interestingly, the teaser was filmed using practical effects under the supervision of effects consultant (and legend) Douglas Trumbull, which is a promising sign. Rather shockingly, the images of molten metal filling a mold were made by…filming molten metal filling a mold.

A whole lot of small details came together to create what can only be described as literal movie magic. For starters, the hills and valleys you see throughout the title treatment are actually a huge (sustainably sourced) hunk of reclaimed redwood. And that water? That’s actually molten metal. “There was a desire in shooting this title reveal to have a wash of water come through, which I thought was a very beautiful idea,” Trumbull explained. “The question was ‘well, would it be water, or would it be something else?’ to give the ‘burbling’ effect. That’s a very difficult thing to do with computer graphics because it’s in the realm of fluid dynamics which are very hard to calculate. They’re some of the most challenging elements of computer graphics to execute and you can wait days and days for some frames to render. Whereas, if you’re on a set and you have REAL hot, molten metals and super cold water interacting with this, you’re almost CERTAINLY going to get some surprising visual effect which — on camera — will look really great, particularly if it’s shot at 5000 frames a second.”

Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy is widely beloved for it’s use of practical effects, including models and costumes (the Hobbit…not so much) and not over-relying on CGI is definitely the right esthetic for any adaptation of Tolkien’s works.

Anyway, if you’re a Tolkien freak like me – or just waiting for a new high fantasy series to binge this fall – the countdown begins!

The itinerary followed by German photographers Maximilian Mann and Ingmar Björn Nolting immerses us in the frozen universe of a territory located at the north-eastern tip of Russia, where temperatures drop below – 50°C during the endless winter. An icy desert that takes its name, the Kolyma, from the eponymous river over 2,000 kilometers long which flows from south to north.

Dangerous, although renovated since 2015, the road that follows its course requires nerves of steel to cross passes like the Chornyy Prizhim, the “black prism”. Sometimes called the “Road of Bones”, it was built by gulag prisoners, zeks, sent to this region which has become synonymous with the largest Soviet concentration camp system of the 20the century. Most of them paid with their lives for its construction.

The ghosts of 900,000 captives

The pictures of Road of Bones, the series by Ingmar Björn Nolting and Maximilian Mann forcefully evokes the ghosts of the 900,000 Russian, Polish, Ukrainian and Baltic captives who were held there between 1932 and 1953, the date of Stalin’s death. German photographers tell the story of this region, this past, and what remains of it.

More than 200,000 of them perished there from starvation, cold and mistreatment, according to gulag historian Nicolas Werth, who also made the trip (The Kolyma Road, Belin, 2012). “An archeology of disaster, he remembers. There are less and less vestiges. Only ghost towns remain, remnants of disused factories or thermal power stations, stone structures that were not in the majority at the time.. »

Igor Gabydullin, 52, smokes in his hovel in Kyubume, Yakutia.  Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the workers who built the roads have left, and he lives there alone, without electricity, more than 150 kilometers from the nearest village.

The wooden huts of zeks disappeared. Sometimes, buildings remain, often built by those who, freed from the camps, were to remain in “relegation” in the region. This is the case of the small town of Kadykchan. Now emptied of its population, the city seems lost in the white immensity. The collapse of the Soviet Union precipitated the movement. The few current inhabitants, in the villages, live as hermits, deprived of access to everything. The isolation is such that even today the rest of Russia is referred to as a « continent » difficult to reach.

Controlling the national narrative

Inhospitable, Kolyma was even more so in the first half of the 20th centurye century. Transported by the Trans-Siberian to Vladivostock, tens of thousands of prisoners then had to be transported by boat to Magadan, the capital of the region, in appalling conditions, in order to be used as labor in the mines. After the discovery of gold deposits, Kolyma, placed under direct control of Moscow, and dependent on Dalstroi, the organization created in November 1931 in charge of its exploitation, became the first destination of the victims of the purges. Many did not even arrive at their destination, such as Ossip Mandelstam, one of the most famous Russian poets who died while in transit in Vladisvostock in 1938.

To understand the current whirl, one must first look at the subject at hand: the 1965 book Dune, written by Frank Herbert. More specifically, this is about one of the 20 original editions of the vision that director Alejandro Jodorowsky developed for a possible film adaptation. The book is now considered a science fiction bible and a Inspiration for movies like “Star Wars” or “Alien”. Jodorowsky himself failed to implement the template in the 1970s.

What does that have to do with today?

One of these issues has now been auctioned at Christie’s in November 2021. The art experts estimate the value at between 25,000 and 35,000 euros, it was sold for 2.66 million euros.

The reason for this high price was the “Spice DAO” (Decentralized autonomous organization). This auctioned the book to, according to its own statement, make the individual pages available to the public as NFTs and produce a series based on the contents.

This caused ridicule and malice on social media. Because the book has not only been fully digitized since 2021 and is therefore accessible to everyone. The organization has also not acquired the necessary licensing and administrative rights – so it is not allowed to film a series based on the book, let alone publish it.

Is the Schadenfreude justified?

The fact that the Spice DAO is portrayed as relatively uneducated and stupid in the media is not entirely fair at this point. Already in one Statement from December 2, 2021, they pointed out that they see the problems with the series adaptation:

While we do not own the intellectual property of Frank Herbert’s masterpiece, we have a unique opportunity to create our own addition to the genre in homage to the giants before us.

Spice DAO, December 2, 2021

So it will remain exciting how the decentralized organization will manage to sell the planned mini-series to a streaming service without infringing on the rights mentioned. Possibly the campaign, the amount paid and the current media hype was nothing more than a pretty daring PR campaign. For the time being, there is nothing to say against the tokenization of the individual pages or stories from them. The Spice DAO can digitize the book pages, market them as NFT and sell them via a platform.
