The early seeds of becoming a bird researcher were already sown in the 1970s. My parents exchanged the village of Wormer for farmland in the Kop van Noord-Holland. I was a dreamy little boy who actually wanted to be a farmer. After school I could always be found at the neighbors who have a dairy farm. Black-tailed godwits around the corner, and the cows were still being milked with a mobile milking hut. In addition to black-tailed godwits, you saw turtle doves and partridges everywhere. During rambles in the region, you didn’t look up to the ruffs that silently flew around you. And skylarks everywhere, really everywhere. The number of skylarks was estimated at 750,000 pairs by Sovon Vogelonderzoek Nederland in those years. The term ‘Agricultural Nature Management’ did not yet exist.

Even then, there was already an urgency to support the declining numbers of meadow birds with policy. The Relations Memorandum Policy (1975) from the Den Uyl Cabinet was the first attempt to give the interweaving of nature and farmland a chance. At that time, black-tailed godwit, lapwing and oystercatcher were seen as little critical culture followers. Management agreements were concluded in defined areas. It was a time when the then still fairly objective government guaranteed knowledge gathering and the provinces sent the Provincial Planning Services (PPD) into the field with practical thinking ecologists to collect current data. Independent of course. In fact, meadow bird policy was reactive.

In the early 1990s, we lost the ortolan bunting and gray bunting, and the black-tailed godwit and skylark lines continued to decline. The reactions of the established nature organizations generally showed little ecological sense or knowledge of farming

alarm bells

In subsequent policy cycles, the stacks of reports increased but the number of farmland birds decreased commensurately. On a European scale, the decline of partridges, larks, meadow birds and other beauties continued almost silently.

Alarm bells started ringing in the Netherlands. Among other things, Vogelbescherming Nederland started to stir. The agricultural system, meanwhile, became more and more efficient, and the economic model that created it remained unchanged. With every growth spurt of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), small steps were sometimes taken to improve biodiversity in agricultural areas and then often giant steps back that evaporated small local successes.

In the early 1990s, we lost the ortolan bunting and gray bunting, and the black-tailed godwit and skylark lines continued to decline. The reactions of the established nature organizations generally showed little ecological sense or knowledge of farming. In that period, researchers who were mainly concerned with meadow birds focused their attention mainly on partial aspects of the ecology of – for example – the black-tailed godwit. Farmers who stood out as frontrunners in those years were looked at with pity by their colleagues or, conversely, they were blamed by nature organizations. I’ve known some of these frontrunners for decades. Despite all the good intentions, not much has changed for them personally; their lands have often become quieter and emptier.

At that time, the skylark still happily sang his lyrical tunes, but saw his breeding area shrink. In the late eighties and early nineties, the number of skylarks was estimated at a maximum of 300,000 pairs. The songbird, which also charmed William Shakespeare, was still quite numerous in this period on moors, the blond dunes and, for example, on and around military training grounds and airfields. That meant that skylarks and black-tailed godwits were still very much present in our minds and we were especially concerned about the almost extinct Montagu’s harriers that unexpectedly appeared in the Groningen fields.

Dance around the money pots
In the meantime, money pots became available. Researchers eagerly plunged into it and concentrated their dance for the money around the black-tailed godwit. Broadly speaking, farmers still shrugged their shoulders about the loss of biodiversity. The further intensification on Dutch farms made the mixed farms disappear efficiently. Arable farming, horticulture and dairy farming and other land-based agricultural forms were separated and many animal species associated with the old farmland disappeared almost silently. Think of the barn swallow, the linnet and the ring sparrow. This segregation also continued in European arable land, thanks to a rather energetic but also one-sided CAP.

In the 1990s, the rigid conception of separating the functions ‘nature’ and ‘nature in agricultural areas’ was abandoned. As a result, the budgets for meadow birds continued to swell and landscape restoration was started here and there. The limited scale at which these policy initiatives took place (and still take place) was meaningless for the population level of the vast majority of species. Researchers were mainly concerned with sub-aspects and then (and still do) have virtually no notion of the ecological limits within regular farming practice.

Attention for field birds
At the end of the eighties, attention was also paid to field birds. The work of various PPDs clearly showed that arable regions in, for example, Drenthe, Groningen, Zeeland and even Limburg, turned out to be of great national significance for partridge, skylark, yellow wagtail and yellowhammer. These were also the years when the first articles appeared describing the extinction of Montagu’s harrier, ortolan and red bunting.
The work of the enlightened hunters of the Nature and Environment Conservation Foundation (SBNL) with the partridge as standard-bearer kicked off. The Groningen work on field birds, initiated by the Groningen PPD, was a close second. At the time, it was hardly surprising that a handful of provincial officials stood at the cradle of new policy. In Groningen they certainly did not turn a blind eye to it.

Field bird policy
The Montagu’s Harrier could – as a belated inheritance from Mansholt – be seen as an unexpected windfall and thanks to the attention this graceful species was able to generate at the time, we developed policy on field birds for the first time. In this story a combination of a good press, a progressive CDA deputy, a handful of bold officials from the province of Groningen, the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (at that time, with the regional directorates, an important player), the Rural Areas Agency (DLG) and a handful of volunteers who have been involved with Montagu’s harriers and field birds from the very beginning, a successful combination. It was a mix of idealism, convincing people and an unsatisfied hunger for knowledge, with the idea that special natural values ​​and modern agriculture could go hand in hand.

Meanwhile, the legacy of Mansholt, his European agricultural policy, showed nicely that extensification of arable farming in parts of Groningen and Drenthe had a direct effect on fairly rare species of birds of prey and owls, but the number of skylarks locally skyrocketed. Shakespeare would have been pleased, so would Mansholt. Suddenly a bright light appeared to flicker in the dark tunnel. It must be said that thanks to Deputy Jaap van Dijk the Groningen field birds and in particular the Montagu’s harriers became the white ravens of the national policy on farmland birds. However, the successes remained regional and are unfortunately poorly documented.

Species Policy
In terms of policy, the first cash flows got underway. In 1995 the ‘natural disaster’ package was tested and in 1997 implemented in policy terms. The birth of the national field bird policy took place near Midwolda on the land of farmer Zijlker. The province and DLG had a grip on this policy, where agreements were made at the kitchen tables at farmers’ homes for field birds. Nationally, meanwhile, the number of skylarks continued to decline.

With the expanding budgets for agri-environmental management, the almost romantic atmosphere surrounding the conservation of farmland birds began to give way to the money-driven approach that has now become the standard

The species policy was also created in the 1990s, a gem in national nature policy. In 1999 the Species Protection Plan Montagu’s Harrier saw the light of day in the richly decorated Groningen Statenzaal. This happened in the period when independent researchers and ‘policy’ could still find each other without political pressure and formed the basis for the development of a concept in which field birds and conventional farmers managed to find each other flawlessly.

In the meantime, the number of skylarks – both in agricultural and natural areas – continued to fall sharply and there are no convincing examples nationwide of approaches that make a difference to this species on a reasonable scale. The fact that the species dropped below the 100,000 pair mark speaks volumes.

With the expanding budgets for agri-environmental management, the almost romantic atmosphere surrounding the conservation of farmland birds began to give way to the money-driven approach that has become the standard. Initially, governments still had a grip on the money flows towards goals, but that soon came to an end. After the Groningen deputy Henk Bleker had been able to practice ‘management’ by farmers in Groningen without too much political opposition, DLG and the LNV regional directorates were eliminated ingloriously in his high-profile years as State Secretary and without significant protests. After that, the gate of the dam was closed. I will come back to this in a later contribution.

Looking ahead
In a number of contributions to Foodlog, I will focus on the development of successful policy on field birds in the Netherlands in the early years when policymakers, enthusiasts and farmers began to realize the significance of the declining bird numbers. Knowledge gathering and enthusing farmers and policymakers went hand in hand. The subsequent introduction of increasing budgets for agri-environmental management paved the way for a policy on nature and landscape in agricultural areas that offers hardly any prospects for skylarks and other canaries in the agricultural coal mine.

The number of breeding skylarks has now fallen to less than 40,000 pairs, about the same number as the black-tailed godwit. Money flows have now been institutionalized around agricultural collectives. The development of realistic biodiverse concepts yields little or no result and lingers on showing good intentions and striving for support.

People who want to delve into this matter can read the book by Elvira Werkman (The man on the dike, 2020) or an essay by me (Birds show us the way, 2020), both published by KNNV Publishers.

Those of us who, like me, have lived for so many years, and who, moreover, have been, like me, unrepentant movie buffs since early childhood, the death of the great stars of the screen shows us that the transition is irreversible.

This writer, whose memory is intact, remembers those who were his celluloid friends, a friendship that emerged in the shadows of the Boyacá and Sarmiento theaters in the beloved town.

Elizabeth Taylor, very young, captivated us in Fire of Youth, in which she dared to compete in a horse race posing as a male jockey. This pretty girl later became one of the great actresses and her performances in A Walk in the Sun, Cleopatra, and Cat on a Hot Roof are immortal. His death caused me deep sorrow.

I also had the sad news of the deaths of Gregory Peck, Lee Marvin, Yul Brynner and Fred Astaire; and before them, very young, Montgomery Clift and Steve McQueen. And not to mention the women: Marilyn Monroe and Natalie Wood left in the fullness of their beauty.
Recently Kirk Douglas went to the other dimension, leaving us the image of Spartacus.

Today I want to pay tribute to Sidney Poitier, who passed away a few days ago at the age of 95. A black actor who opened the doors of Hollywood to men and women of his race who until his appearance on theater marquees were only called to play servile roles as hotel porters or fat cooks, as Hattie McDaniel, winner of the Oscar in 1939 as a supporting actress in Gone with the Wind, and she was not allowed, because she was black, to enter the theater to receive the award.
In my opinion, the worst humiliation for that ethnic group was given by Al Jolson, the famous singer and actor who smeared his face to appear black and thus make his audience laugh.

Sidney Poitier changed all that dark panorama. I was fortunate to see all of his films as soon as they appeared on theater billboards or in press advertisements. Over there I saw the list that an admirer of the star made of the best, and I fully agree.

These are: A Ray of Light (1950), in which he shares credits with Richard Widmarck, whose villain roles elevated him; Evil Seed (1955); The free slave (1957); Fugitives (1958); The lilies of the valley (1963); A patch of blue (1965); To the teacher with affection (1967); In the heat of the night (1967); and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967), in which he was at the height of his co-stars, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, that pair of ‘sacred monsters’ of the cinematograph.

If I were required to reduce this list, I would choose Fugitives, a film that follows the escape of two prisoners, one white and one black -Poitier and Tony Curtis- tied to a chain who have to put up with each other in the middle of their racial tensions.

It would also include In the Heat of the Night, which earned his partner Rod Steiger the Oscar. In the last two boxes I would put Guess who’s coming to dinner, for his extraordinary performance as a black doctor in love with a beautiful and distinguished blonde girl, when discrimination in the United States was tremendous. And it would conclude with The Lilies of the Valley, a tender film for which he won the Oscar in 1964.

We want to give thanks to the writer of this post for this awesome web content

I also had the sad news of the deaths of Gregory Peck, Lee Marvin, Yul Brynner and Fred Astaire; and before them, very young, Montgomery Clift and Steve McQueen. And not to mention the women: Marilyn Monroe and Natalie Wood left in the fullness of their beauty.
Recently Kirk Douglas went to the other dimension, leaving us the image of Spartacus.

Today I want to pay tribute to Sidney Poitier, who passed away a few days ago at the age of 95. A black actor who opened the doors of Hollywood to men and women of his race who until his appearance on theater marquees were only called to play servile roles as hotel porters or fat cooks, as Hattie McDaniel, winner of the Oscar in 1939 as a supporting actress in Gone with the Wind, and she was not allowed, because she was black, to enter the theater to receive the award.
In my opinion, the worst humiliation for that ethnic group was given by Al Jolson, the famous singer and actor who smeared his face to appear black and thus make his audience laugh.

Sidney Poitier changed all that dark panorama. I was fortunate to see all of his films as soon as they appeared on theater billboards or in press advertisements. Over there I saw the list that an admirer of the star made of the best, and I fully agree.

These are: A Ray of Light (1950), in which he shares credits with Richard Widmarck, whose villain roles elevated him; Evil Seed (1955); The free slave (1957); Fugitives (1958); The lilies of the valley (1963); A patch of blue (1965); To the teacher with affection (1967); In the heat of the night (1967); and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967), in which he was at the height of his co-stars, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, that pair of ‘sacred monsters’ of the cinematograph.

If I were required to reduce this list, I would choose Fugitives, a film that follows the escape of two prisoners, one white and one black -Poitier and Tony Curtis- tied to a chain who have to put up with each other in the middle of their racial tensions.

It would also include In the Heat of the Night, which earned his partner Rod Steiger the Oscar. In the last two boxes I would put Guess who’s coming to dinner, for his extraordinary performance as a black doctor in love with a beautiful and distinguished blonde girl, when discrimination in the United States was tremendous. And it would conclude with The Lilies of the Valley, a tender film for which he won the Oscar in 1964.

Editorial. The British, like all populations affected by Covid, have endured their share of tragedies, constraints and deprivations: confinements, canceled family reunions, funerals in small groups. The country has just passed the milestone of 150,000 deaths linked to the pandemic, a sad record, with a per capita rate higher than that of the European Union (EU).

However, while it was enacting prohibitions and sanctions against the population, the government of Boris Johnson multiplied the parties washed down in Downing Street. According to press revelations, the Prime Minister participated in one of these collective parties in May 2020 less than an hour after one of his ministers announced the ban on such gatherings. In April 2021, another of these receptions was held the day before Queen Elizabeth attended alone, in Windsor Chapel, the funeral of her husband, Philip. Poignant, the image of the queen seated in the middle of empty stalls, facing the coffin of the prince, has been around the world.

In a country whose rule of law (« the rule of law ») is one facet of identity, Boris Johnson’s contempt for rules made under his own authority rightly causes intense anger. Two out of three Britons want him to resign, according to polls, as do several MPs from his party. Coming after a long series of blunders, the scandal of parties illegal is obviously one too many, the one that marks the beginning of the end of Mr Johnson’s thunderous reign over British politics. This time, the contempt for the people is flagrant.

Illusionist

In 2019, with Westminster paralyzed, unable to secure a majority on the European Union divorce deal brokered by Theresa May, Boris Johnson emerged as not just the savior of the Conservative Party, but the man who would finally “make Brexit happen”. His opportunism, his lightness, his elastic relationship to the truth were already known. But wrapped in a phenomenal aplomb, an undeniable charisma and a solid humor, these characteristics of the character could appear to certain Britons as assets, when casting off with the continent.

Since then, Mr. Johnson’s two main constants have been his contempt for institutions and his propensity for lies, coupled with his rage to deny them. In the summer of 2019, fearing the censorship of deputies about Brexit, he went so far as to “suspend” Parliament, until the Supreme Court stopped the adventure. Denying his own signature on customs controls in the Irish Sea, he threatened, more recently, to denounce the Brexit agreement. Even caught in the act, Boris Johnson continues to deny: Downing Street parties were “work meetings”, he dared.

But the prime minister’s original lie was about nothing less than Brexit itself. By repeating that the British could “to have the butter and the money from the butter” (« to have the cake and eat it ») after leaving the EU, Boris Johnson captivated a large section of opinion: both pro-Brexit popular voters, whom he mirrored state aid, and party, on the contrary, expect drastic deregulation. Today, everyone is waiting in vain for the “Brexit dividends” he promised. British democracy will need all its assets to get the country out of the impasse where the illusionist “Boris” led it.

A 10-year plan for Australian space science published by the Australian Academy of Science (AAS) has warned about the need for the country to establish its own sovereign satellite capability.

Currently, Australia depends on countries in Europe and the United States to access satellite data.

“The weakest link we have in terms of space capability is still dependent on other countries for services from satellites, particularly around whether it’s positioning, navigation, timing, or observation,” according to Stuart Phinn, director of University of Queensland’s Remote Sensing Research Centre and founding director of Earth Observation Australia Inc.

“Having our own set of satellites would address that weakness.”

Pinn said without ownership of a network of Earth observation satellites, the speed at which Australia can respond to weather emergencies, such as the recent Tongan volcanic eruptions and Maryborough floods in Queensland, would always be hindered.

“If we did have things in place, I would suspect we would have a lot more information a lot more quickly, in terms of what’s happening in Tonga and the floods that we’ve seen in Queensland,” he said.

The plan additionally recommends establishing a national program of space weather research to receive advance warning for when a major space weather event occurs to protect global critical infrastructure, such as aviation, satellites, power grids, and radio communications. The plan states that, based on Australia’s current capability, the country would only receive about one hours’ warning of a major space weather event.

“I can guarantee that at some point there’ll be a catastrophic space weather event that will fundamentally damage our infrastructure,” said Fred Menk, chair of the expert working group that developed the plan and chair of the National Committee for Space and Radio Science at AAS.

“What I can’t do is I can’t tell you if that’s going to be next week or in 100 years, and that is because we don’t have the science which allows us to make those sort of predictions accurately.

“What we can do is we can grow science capability in Australia because we’re actually experts in this field, and we have a wide range of centres distributed across Australia used for space situational awareness amongst other things, for example, astronomy as well.

“It is essential to track the vastly growing number of space objects. This is something we can do and this is something we can contribute to the world in helping maintain sustainable use of space for all of humankind, and helping predict catastrophic space weather events.”

Phinn further added that being able to track major space weather events would enable Australia to examine how the country’s environments are changing, which would be essential for tracking bushfires, carbon counting, biomass assessments, and marine resources, as well as for interplanetary exploration and expanding capabilities in industries such as defence.

“Building the science capabilities that support all of these things is essential,” he said.

In the 10-year plan, there is also a recommendation for a national space innovation and education strategy to be introduced, led by the Australian Space Agency, that is consistent with the national curriculum. This strategy would span the primary, secondary, tertiary, VET and industry sectors, with the aim to grow STEM participation, and improve career pathways and industry outcomes, aligned with diversity and equity values, the plan stated.

“Given the growth that we’ve seen over the last decade [in the space industry], and as we know as well, education is one of Australia’s largest exports and it’s something that we’re really, really well-known for, so we have an opportunity to capitalise on this and build upon this reputation, and actually provide a world-class education in Australian space science to feed the space industry,” Rocket Lab systems engineer Imogen Rea said.

When it comes to building space skills, one of the disappointing issues for Menk is the lack of Australian-focused teaching materials that are readily available to schools.

“There are elements of space in the school curriculum, and teachers go to NASA to find resources for their teaching but that totally ignores the Australian context. What we need is curated curriculum-ready material for teachers and students in the Australian context,” he said.

Phinn said this issue would be shortly addressed with the release of what he described as a comprehensive set of resources on Earth observation sciences compiled by Australian authors over three years.

“It’ll be the first time we’ve got a set of resources that’s been used in universities at the moment, but it can be used in senior schools as well. It builds on work that was done initially in the 1980s in CSIRO,” he said.

“We’re starting to produce that type of material which will engage with education systems in Australia to bring people along and have Australian content rather than northern hemisphere content.”

In a bid to grow skills with diversity and inclusion in mind, Rea highlighted that the plan recommends for a diversity and inclusion officer to be appointed at the Australian Space Agency.

“That’s really just to get to the bottom of what the different issues that exist in space science that may not exist in other areas, and really putting this as a priority, separate to the women like the STEM ambassador or the chief scientist,” Rea said.

She also believes part of the solution is changing people’s perception about how accessible it is to participate in the space sector.

“To change people’s perspective that space is for everyone, I think it’s really important for people to get out there, whether it’s through the superstars of STEM program, or there’s a variety of other women in STEM and diverse people in STEM activities, to really get out there and show people that they can be involved because it’s really hard to be what you can’t see,” Rae told ZDNet.

Other recommendations in the plan include establishing a lead scientist in the Australian Space Agency, space science as a national research priority, and committing to and investing in an ongoing national space program.

The decade-long plan echoes the 38 recommendations that were made recently by the Standing Committee on Industry, Innovation, Science and Resources, following the conclusion of its inquiry into developing Australia’s space industry.

After the consecration with “Amare”, Veronica Lucchesi and Dario Mangiaracina they return to the Festival with a totally different song, “Ciao Ciao”. Musically amusing stanzas, which lend the rhythmic breath to the splendid voice of Lucchesi.

Enrico Vanzina in pink: «With” Tre sorelle “I put women at the center. Between fragility and feelings “

«We wanted to close a circle that began last year – tell the two who will be on stage together with Enrico Lupi and Erica Lucchesi (Veronica’s sister) – A new sound, to tell the other side of LRDL ». More than anything else, the B side (given the cover of the song that responds to the vagina in the foreground of last year). «The song lends itself to many opportunities to vent on stage.

Third consecutive year at the Festival: guests of Rancore in 2020 and competing last year. What song is “Ciao Ciao”?

“There are those who say it refers to the 70s, others to the 80s. For us it is 2022, with the themes of the LRDL inside: the body, the book Maimamma, the end of the world”.

What is the end of the world?
VL: «The end of illusions. The end of certainties. The end of the games. But it can be an illuminating light, an opportunity to change and start over ”.

Is the reference to Covid?
VL: «It’s wider. I think about what is happening to the Earth that is pawing at the mistakes we are making. To the fear of death ».
DM: «The pandemic situation is inserted, there is the“ social vertigo ”, which is loneliness. The fear is that humanity can self-destruct. Said so it seems pathetic, but it is a literary topos. Remember “Don’t look up” (the last film with Di Caprio and Lawrence, ed). Man does not change easily. It is always that of wars. Art can direct the collective consciousness ».

Your end of the world?
DM. “Apart from the Covid we took? (They laugh, ed). We have had it, it is important to transform for the better. The choir that sings with Veronica “It’s up to us” means this ».
VL. «I have an end that I keep in mind, of which I still bear the signs of death allegorically speaking: the clear separation from the theater after a disappointment with the company we worked with. Difficult to deal with this end, but life has been turned upside down. It was a nice change ».

And there you are.
DM .: «This year it will be a real Sanremo, with the characters – Morandi, Zanicchi, Ranieri, Elisa – of the Festival that we were watching».
VL .: «Last year was more of a rupture, we were next to Madame, Colapesce and Dimartino, Coma_Cose, like a line up of an independent festival».

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 which 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 transiting Vladisvostock in 1938.

the love between Jennifer Lopez Y Ben Affleck remains stronger than ever after his new opportunity in 2021, when they decided to resume their relationship after 17 years. In days when JLo enjoys her family in Los Angeles, a detail did not go unnoticed in her most recent photos, where her abs of steel stole the glances, but also a necklace that the “Batman” actor gave her when they celebrated his 52nd birthday sailing around Saint-Tropez and which bears his name. Here everything that is known about the luxurious jewel.

MADRID, July 14. (CultureLeisure) –

No one had ever delved so fully and in such a complex way into the world of dreams as he did Christopher Nolan con Origen (Inception). Tape starring Leonardo DiCaprio It is still a headache for many viewers today. A title that In addition to its intricate plot, hide many really interesting secrets related to its production.

– Michael Caine explains (again) the ending of Inception

putting aside its ambiguous end or its amazing Oscar-winning visual effects, in Origin Nolan mixes the dream world and futuristic technology to trace a plot in which dreams are confused with the most sophisticated espionage and robbery cinema.

– The new theory about Origin turns the whole movie upside down

A high-end cinematographic gem which, of course, has a good handful of curious data. We recovered ten of them:

1. NOLAN TOOK 10 YEARS TO WRITE THE MOVIE

Nolan is one of those directors, like Tarantino, who is in no hurry to write his scripts. For The Final Trick he spent five years working on the story. And time was doubled in Origin. In 2011, the filmmaker revealed to Deadline that he had a hard time making the story really compelling. But everything was solved when Cobb’s wife and children They entered the scene.

2. THE INITIALS OF THE CHARACTERS FORM AN ACRONYM

All the names of the characters in Origin hide some secret, like that of Ariadne (Ellen Page) who takes her name from the mythological character who helped Theseus out of the labyrinth of the minotaur. But when you combine the initials of each of the six protagonists (Dom, Robert, Eames, Arthur, Mal and Saito) the word you get is DREAMS. If the names of Peter Ariadne and Yusuf are added to this, the result is DREAMS PAY (something like “dreams are paid”). Disturbing.

3. NOLAN DIDN’T WANT TO SHOOT IN 3D

During the filming of Origin, and given the growing success of 3D technology in the wake of Avatar, Nolan considered shooting the film with this process. However, he scrapped it because he thought it would be too distracting from the plot. As he revealed to Deadline in 2011, later it was decided to include 3D in post-production, but the idea was also scrapped because it would have been too costly to get the result the ever-ambitious filmmaker was really looking for.

4. HE HARDLY USED CGI IN THE ACTION SEQUENCES

Watching the movie, it would be easy to think that the vast majority of sequences, especially the most spectacular, were recreated by CGI. However, it was the other way around. Almost all of the effects were done on set. Only about 500 shots of the final footage include digital retouching. The rest were recreated on set, including the spectacular fight sequence in the hotel with rotating and anti-gravity effect, as well as the meeting of Cobb and Ariadne in the market, where everything explodes

5. SHOOTING DURING A REAL AVALANCHE

These real effects also include the sequence in the fortress of dreams, for which an avalanche was generated by placing explosives in the mountains of Calgary, Canada. Although the crew had doubts about whether the snow would act at the right time, a severe storm coincided with the days of filming, putting even more snow on the landscape. This scene, by the way, is inspired by classic James Bond action sequences.

6. TOM HARDY DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO SKI BEFORE ORIGIN

But If anyone had a particularly bad time with the scenes in the snow, that was Tom Hardy.. The protagonist of Venom and Warrior did not know how to ski before filming began. As he revealed on the Chatty Man show, “to avoid losing the opportunity to work for the first time with NolanHardy had to learn to ski on set. And in some sequences he was even tied to the back of a snowmobile.”

7. HANS ZIMMER WAS INSPIRED BY EDITH PIAF

Just as important as the images in Origen is its soundtrack, the work of ya legendario Hans Zimmer. Initially, Zimmer was inspired by the trombone section of a version of ‘No I don’t regret anything’ by Edith Piaf from 1956. And although Nolan was reticent because his star Marion Cotillard she had played the French singer in the French film Life in Pink, she finally gave in to her composer’s ideas.

8. ORIGIN IS AN ALLEGORY OF THE ART OF FILM MAKING

The layers and layers that make up the plot of Origin they are, as in the dream world itself, increasingly surprising. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Nolan explained that, while putting the finishing touches on the script, he realized that he had unconsciously created an allegory of the process of making a movie.

Each character fills a typical film crew role, with Cobb as the director, Arthur as the producer, Ariadne as the production designer, Eames as the lead actor, and Saito as the investor. “When trying to write a creative process based on a team, I wrote the one I know best“added the filmmaker.

9. JAPANESE TV EXPLAINED LAYERS OF SLEEP

Although in Origin the characters are much of the time explaining to the viewer, and to themselves, how the layers of dreams work, even so, the plot gets a bit confusing. At least that must have been thought by those responsible for Japanese television, since during the broadcasts of the film they added some signs in the lower corner of the screen that indicated at all times in which layer of the dream the action was taking place to avoid the confusion of the viewers… and steal some magic from the experience?

10. THERE IS A BOARD GAME BASED ON ORIGIN

For all those fans who want to immerse themselves fully in the plot of Origin and in the dream world, there is a board game called ‘Dream Heist’ in which players immerse themselves in increasingly complex layers with the intention of implanting an idea in the mind of their sleeping target. Although the game takes many elements from the film, from its premise to the totem poles, it is not licensed by Warner Bros. But you can buy it on its official website.
