I enjoyed F9 quite a bit, but if there’s ever an opportunity to pivot and discuss The Faculty with Jordana Brewster, you can bet I’m going to take it.

The 1998 Robert Rodriguez-directed film marked Brewster’s very first feature. If you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for? Of all the late-90s horror movies that tried to catch that Scream wave, it’s one of the absolute best and a movie I still can’t get enough of to this day. It takes place at Herrington High School where, all of a sudden, something doesn’t seem quite right about the teaching staff. Brewster’s character is part of a small group of students who realize aliens are taking over their school just in time to band together and try to do something about it.

the-faculty

Much to my delight, while chatting with Brewster for the release of the F9 Director’s Cut, her experience working on The Faculty naturally came up. That portion of the conversation began with her describing her shorthand with F9 director Justin Lin. Here’s what she said:

“Justin and I have a shorthand because we’ve worked together on Annapolis and then on 4, 5, 6 and now 9. So he knows how to trigger certain things in me. He knows how to push my buttons.”

How exactly does Lin go about triggering those reactions from Brewster? She continued:

“I think oftentimes with me it’s like, bring up my kid or bring up how it relates to that. Justin’s so funny; sometimes he’ll just be like, ‘Clutch,’ and I’m just like, [nods]. It’ll be like one word and I’m just like, ‘Yes.’ I’m very practical; it helps me to go behind the camera and watch myself. I’m not one of those actors that’s gonna get neurotic – I mean, I am a neurotic actor, but it helps me to watch the performance and go, ‘Oh, I see. I see what’s missing. I see what’s not connecting there,’ so it’s really nice when you work with directors who allow you to do that.”

On a recent episode of Collider Ladies Night, Alexandra Daddario mentioned her eagerness to see playback early on in her career and coming to learn that, “Directors don’t love when actors are constantly asking to see the scene back.” So what’s that like for an actor like Brewster who benefits from being able to see her work? That’s where The Faculty came in! Here’s what she said when asked what happens when she doesn’t have access to that footage:

“I have been in that situation, but I also grew up — on The Faculty I remember, they would show dailies during lunch, so you were able to watch the dailies or you could ask hair and makeup, ‘What do they look like? How’s it looking?’ Or oftentimes, hair and makeup gets the dailies and you can sneak them. You’re like, [whispering] ‘Show me them,’ or you have to know the right person in the crew. But yeah, it’s kind of a drag. You know what’s a drag? When they lie to you and they’re like, ‘I’m sorry, we don’t have playback.’ And you’re just like, ‘Um, that’s a lie. No.’ So yeah, it’s very helpful to me. Because I can tweak things and be objective.”

Italy and Rome are ready to host the next international Igtm event in 2022 and in view of the Ryder Cup 2023. Enit for Italy strongly wanted, in synergy with the Italian Golf Federation, the Lazio region and Convention bureau Rome and Lazio and Fiera di Roma, the arrival in the country of the most important event to promote golf tourism at an international level scheduled this year at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport (Wales, United Kingdom) where the National Tourism Agency I contact 180 buyers with hundreds of sellers and local authorities.

«The pandemic has revolutionized the way of thinking of the tourist who is looking for experiences linked to the territorial experience and to deep experiences and in contact with nature. Having Igtm in Italy and in Rome is an unmissable opportunity. Golf tourism is a competitive sector that contributes to Italy’s positioning in the international tourism scenario. The event has already shown that it contributes to increasing the tourism GDP of the host countries. It is destined to grow by 5.36 billion dollars in the 2020-2024 period, post Covid-19 »declares the president of Enit Giorgio Palmucci.

According to the statistics of the European Golf Association, there are about 1,400 golf facilities in the European Mediterranean countries, of which 170 are located on the coast, 73 in Spain, 33 in Portugal, 25 in Italy, 19 in France, 12 in Turkey. In Italy there are 90,229 golfers in the 386 golf courses (of which 140 at least 18 holes). 104 Golf Clubs are defined by the Fig (Italian Golf Federation) with a tourist vocation. Golf is in 5th place among the sports marketed on the international tourism intermediation markets to Italy (14.4%) after cycling (36.1%), skiing (25.8%), trekking (24, 7%) and calcium.

There are 1.8 million appearances linked to golf tourism, (3.9 million appearances considering those who stayed in Italy for other reasons but played golf during their vacation). For the sports holiday in Italy, foreigners spend more between February and April, 35.3% of the total. Total spending finds its peak in the summer months: around 38.0% between July and September. Men (45% of the total number of interviewees men versus 40% of the total among women) are mainly men who practice outdoor tourism, included in the age group between 35 and 64 years (53%) and to a fairly uniform extent among the residents of the various Italian regions, residing in the medium-large centers. In the survey on Italian holidays (carried out by Enit between 24 and 30 August) through about 4 thousand interviews with the population, the 2020 holiday sought after post lock-down saw the desire for the sea prevail (60%). Local vacationers look for other experiences from vacation, including those related to sports (6%) or cycle tourism (1%).

The National Center for Stage Costume in Moulins (Allier) is presenting, for the first time, an exhibition in the form of a portrait. It honors Yannis Kokkos, costume designer and set designer turned director, who started in the theater before devoting himself mainly to opera. Through drawings, costumes, models, the visitor travels from antiquity dear to the Franco-Greek artist, born in Athens in 1944, to the rich hours of our time.

Accompanied by a beautiful autobiographical book (Scenes, Actes Sud, 336 pages, 39 euros), which looks back on fifty-five years of career and more than 200 shows, the exhibition ends, like an odyssey, with an evocation of Satin shoe, by Paul Claudel, directed by Antoine Vitez, in Avignon, in 1987, for which Yannis Kokkos had signed an unforgettable set and costumes.

Read the 1987 review: Article reserved for our subscribers “Le Soulier de satin”, by Paul Claudel Communion with dawn

Where does your taste for the stage come from?

I knew and liked the theater through the radio, which broadcast plays that I listened to as a kid in Athens in my bed. And I drew the decor of the pieces I heard. Radio, in its reduction, developed my imagination. She also brought me closer to actors and opera, in a way, through the voices, to which I am very sensitive. Then I saw shows, it was a great period of Greek theater, in the 1950s. And I read everything. From Stevenson to ancient texts, a world of adventure and poetry has opened up for me. Even today, it is like a garment that covers me, and in which I feel good.

You worked with Antoine Vitez, as a scenographer and costume designer, since the 1970s. What did he teach you?

The availability. He liked to say that he was a theater of all kinds. Contrary to the image he could give, he was not dogmatic, but very free in his approach to the works. For him, the theater was a school of life, and I totally share this point of view. Nothing, except perhaps literature, but differently, gives this intimate confrontation between oneself and the world that one experiences in the theater. On Antoine’s death [Vitez], in 1990, I continued my work, which was almost naturally to sign productions. I started doing it in the 1980s at the theater. But very quickly, I was invited to the opera, where I work mainly, for twenty years.

What do you particularly like about the opera?

To travel, that is to say, to really get to know the cultures of the interior, which I do, from Russia to Japan. Observe the dissimilarities, from the construction workshops to the approach of the song. Build a show with different imaginations, but which are united by a work. In opera, no preconditions should ever exist. Everything is open.

It ended with one fine of 450 thousand euros the investigation started byAntitrust towards U-Earth Biotech e Pure Air Zone Italy, the two companies that about a year ago had put the mask on sale high tech U-Mask describing it as a certified medical device capable of protecting like an Ffp3, destroying viruses and lasting up to 200 hours. In the provision issued on 22 October, theCompetition and Market Authority (Agcm) has in fact established that in reality the product in question had inferior characteristics and has found the companies guilty of unfair and aggressive commercial practices.

It all started between the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021: on the complaint of a competing company, the mask at the time in vogue among celebrities and politicians ended up at the center of ainvestigation by the Milan prosecutor’s office which ordered the withdrawal from 10 pharmacies suspecting it did not filter what was declared and had not passed the scrutiny of theHigher Institute of Health as instead claimed. From there also the subsequent stop by the Ministry of Health on the sale of new lots and the consequent activation of the Agcm, which after months of work completed its investigation. “For over a year, the two companies have been promoting biotech surgical masks registered as medical devices, equating him unduly to filtering facepieces of higher efficacy, such as personal protective equipment ffP3, and giving them additional qualities, for example virucidal properties, certified independently“. So we read in the press release with which the Authority motivated the provision. Which continues: “This is a practice put in place with deceptive and aggressive ways, as they are susceptible to fooling consumers on the effective protective capacity of the mask, putting their health is in danger, and to leverage the health emergency situation to unduly induce the latter to purchase the product “.

However, it is not the only violation put in place by the companies attributable to the creation of Betta Maggio, founder in 2009 of the biotech company Earth as well as its current managing director. According to the Authority, in fact, “the general conditions of the contract were available only in English and anon-existent approval of the mask by the Ministry of Health and the Higher Institute of Health ”. And in addition to all this – notes the Guarantor – until the end of last February U-Earth Biotech and Pure Air Zone Italy “violated the regulations on pre-contractual information for the consumer in distance contracts as they did not provide the required indications regarding the procedures for exercising the right of withdrawal of the consumer, the legal guarantee of conformity and the possibility of using an extra-judicial complaint and appeal mechanism “.

It ended with one fine of 450 thousand euros the investigation started byAntitrust towards U-Earth Biotech e Pure Air Zone Italy, the two companies that about a year ago had put the mask on sale high tech U-Mask describing it as a certified medical device capable of protecting like an Ffp3, destroying viruses and lasting up to 200 hours. In the provision issued on 22 October, theCompetition and Market Authority (Agcm) has in fact established that in reality the product in question had inferior characteristics and has found the companies guilty of unfair and aggressive commercial practices.

It all started between the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021: on the complaint of a competing company, the mask at the time in vogue among celebrities and politicians ended up at the center of ainvestigation by the Milan prosecutor’s office which ordered the withdrawal from 10 pharmacies suspecting it did not filter what was declared and had not passed the scrutiny of theHigher Institute of Health as instead claimed. From there also the subsequent stop by the Ministry of Health on the sale of new lots and the consequent activation of the Agcm, which after months of work completed its investigation. “For over a year, the two companies have been promoting biotech surgical masks registered as medical devices, equating him unduly to filtering facepieces of higher efficacy, such as personal protective equipment ffP3, and giving them additional qualities, for example virucidal properties, certified independently“. So we read in the press release with which the Authority motivated the provision. Which continues: “This is a practice put in place with deceptive and aggressive ways, as they are susceptible to fooling consumers on the effective protective capacity of the mask, putting their health is in danger, and to leverage the health emergency situation to unduly induce the latter to purchase the product “.

However, it is not the only violation put in place by the companies attributable to the creation of Betta Maggio, founder in 2009 of the biotech company Earth as well as its current managing director. According to the Authority, in fact, “the general conditions of the contract were available only in English and anon-existent approval of the mask by the Ministry of Health and the Higher Institute of Health ”. And in addition to all this – notes the Guarantor – until the end of last February U-Earth Biotech and Pure Air Zone Italy “violated the regulations on pre-contractual information for the consumer in distance contracts as they did not provide the required indications regarding the procedures for exercising the right of withdrawal of the consumer, the legal guarantee of conformity and the possibility of using an extra-judicial complaint and appeal mechanism “.

Power sector engineering and construction firm McDermott International is part of a consortium selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to demonstrate the feasibility of liquid hydrogen storage at massive scale.

McDermott’s CB&I Storage Solutions has joined with Shell International Exploration and Production, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, GenH2 and the University of Houston for the project.

DOE’s Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office has selected the group and awarded $6 million to finance the project, while CB&I and Shell will provide an additional $3 million each.

The project will try to demonstrate that a large-scale LH2 tank, with a capacity ranging from 20,000 to 100,000 cubic meters, is both feasible and cost competitive at import and export terminals. If successful, it could enable large-scale LH2 storage for international trade applications.

“McDermott is leveraging the 60 years of LH2 storage technology expertise of our CB&I Storage Solutions business to exponentially scale up safe capacity thresholds to meet growing demands,” said Samik Mukherjee, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, McDermott International. “This consortium will accelerate that momentum as we work together to advance the next generation of sustainable energy.”

The consortium will collaborate to develop a technically innovative and economically viable concept design for the large scale LH2 storage tank. Additionally, the group will engineer and construct a scaled-down demonstration tank that will be tested to validate the feasibility of the design and the thermal model for commercial-scale design.

Hydrogen itself does not emit carbon when burned. To be truly “green” hydrogen, it would need to be created by electrolysis powered with zero-carbon resources such as wind or solar. Hydrogen could also be created through more carbon intensive steam refactoring of methane while added carbon capture technologies can lower emissions.

Shell will lead the project and provide guidance on hydrogen supply chain and safety. CB&I Storage Solutions will provide engineering, design and LH2 construction storage expertise.

GenH2 will design and manufacture one of the world’s most advanced thermal testing devices, known as Cryostat-900.

NASA will work closely with GenH2 on novel testing development.

The University of Houston will focus their efforts on the creation of detailed thermal models of the proposed insulation systems.

“A cost-effective, long-range hydrogen supply chain can have a transformative impact in shaping a sustainable future for energy,” said Yuri Sebregts, Chief Technology Officer for Shell. “Our consortium recognizes that this project can become a cornerstone in making that future possible. It’s a sizable engineering challenge—but we have the right people, partners and outlook to deliver this first-of-its-kind LH2 storage technology.”

This public, private and academic endeavor will support the goals of the DOE H2@Scale and Hydrogen Shot initiatives, bringing stakeholders together in an effort to reduce the cost of clean hydrogen and advance its role in the energy transition.

Army of Thieves, the precursor to Zack Snyder’s massively streaming hit, Army of the Dead which was released in May 2021. It has a new teaser that showcases its robbing crew in operation. The new trailer for the film was shown as part of Netflix’s Tudum fan event.

The Army of Thieves teaser debuted at the Netflix TUDUM event, which is exclusively available online. The official full-length trailer for Matthias Schweighöfer’s prequel to Zack Snyder’s heist zombie flick Army of the Dead has been released by Netflix. Zack and Deborah Snyder, Schweighöfer, Nathalie Emmanuel, Stuart Martin, Guz Khan, and Ruby O. Fee were all on board at TUDUM to give out the teaser.

Army of Thieves is a Netflix original film produced by The Stone Quarry and Pantaleon Films. The film’s cinematographer is Bernhard Jasper, the editor is Alexander Berner, and the composers are Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro.

Army of Thieves is directed by Schweighöfer from a script written by Army of the Dead co-writer Shay Hatten, who also devised the Army of Thieves plot alongside Snyder. The movie is also produced by Schweighöfer and Snyder, as well as Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller, and Dan Maag.

Schweighöfer portrayed a German safecracker Ludwig Dieter in Army of the Dead, a character he reprises now in the prequel, which takes place six years before the events in Las Vegas shown in Snyder’s film. In Army of Thieves, Ludwig is recruited to sneak into a number of bank vaults around Europe, with the genius Gwendoline taking advantage of the diversion caused by the zombie apocalypse.

Zombies are likely to appear in Army of Thieves too, according to Snyder, despite Netflix says there really are zero zombies in the film. Except for Schweighöfer’s Ludwig, no additional Army of the Dead personalities are likely to show up in This Movie.

Surprisingly, the upcoming film focuses on heist themes rather than zombies. While the film is marketed as a romantic heist film, Army of Thieves is a prequel set in the aftermath of a zombie epidemic in the United States. The film also stars Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Free, Stuart Martin, Guz Khan, and Jonathan Cohen.

Army of Thieves is one of an increasing amount of ‘Army of the Dead’ spin-offs in the creations from Zack Snyder, who has also been supervising an anime spinoff, ‘Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas,’ that will recount the origins of Dave Bautista’s persona, Scott Ward, and his recovery teams during Vega’s early decline.

Zack Snyder shared three Army of Thieves posters on Twitter. The bright pictures foreshadow the upcoming spectacular heist while also highlighting the film’s primary team of thieves. The posters emphasize that the film is a prequel, with one saying “as the zombies took control, one squad took advantage,” suggesting when Army of Thieves takes place in the Army of the Dead timeline.

Despite Army of Thieves is a precursor film, it stands on its own. While zombies still exist in the film, they aren’t the film’s major emphasis. A solo prequel film has long seemed like an interesting possibility, however, some fans are wary of the shift from action to rom-com. Snyder has promised us all that the new distinctive style would be just as exciting and entertaining.

SpaceX has posted a dramatic video of the first firing of its Raptor vacuum engine integrated onto a Starship prototype.

Starship is a reusable launch system being developed by Elon Musk’s company to carry people and cargo to the moon, Mars, and beyond.

The firing test of the Raptor vacuum engine took place on Thursday night at SpaceX’s Starbase facility in Boca Chica, in southern Texas.

The 165-foot-tall SN20 Starship prototype that was involved in Thursday’s firing test currently features two Raptor engines.

One of these is a standard Raptor engine designed to lift off from Earth, while the other is Raptor “vacuum” variant, which is optimized to operate in space.

The brief “static fire” test occurred at 8:16 p.m. EDT on Thursday and it appears that only the single Raptor vacuum engine was involved, NASASpaceflight.com reported.

In the video posted to Twitter, the rocket engine can be seen briefly firing, lighting up the launch pad in the fading evening light.

The company conducted a second static fire test later on Thursday evening at 9:18 p.m. EDT, which appeared to involve both of the Raptor engines, NASASpaceflight.com reported.

The in-development “Starship” launch system consists of a lower booster stage known as “Super Heavy” and an upper stage simply called “Starship,” which doubles as a long-duration mission spacecraft.

Elon Musk’s company uses the term “Starship” to refer to the lower and upper stage collectively.

The company said Starship, which is fully reusable, will be the most powerful launch vehicle ever developed, capable of transporting more than 100 metric tonnes into space.

The entire launch system, including both the lower and upper stages, will measure around 394 feet in height.

According to SpaceX, Starship has the capability to transport satellites, payloads, crew and cargo to “a variety of orbits and Earth, lunar or Martian landing sites.”

“Fully-reusable Starship and Super Heavy systems are expected to allow for space-based activities that have not been possible since the retirement of the Space Shuttle and Space Transportation System or have never been possible before,” the company said in a fact sheet.

In fact, NASA has chosen Starship as its first crewed lunar landing system for the Artemis moon program.

In its final configuration, the first stage will feature 29 Raptor engines, while the upper stage will be equipped with six—three standard ones and three vacuum variants.

The SN20 Starship prototype will be involved in an orbital test flight at some point in the next few months—in what will be a first in the development of the launch system.

Zapping But! Football Club RC Lens: the top 10 most used players by Franck Haise

As usual, Franck Haise started with a workforce review before receiving FC Metz on Sunday (1 p.m.). And the good surprise is the presence of Gaël Kakuta in the morning training, he who is the lucky charm of the Blood and Gold. “We found Gaël Kakuta during the collective training on Wednesday. We found Gana yesterday, Massadio Haidara is in individual recovery. I do not yet have a specific date for his collective recovery, ”commented the RC Lens coach with a smile on his face.

Haise took the time to return to the non-match of his troops on Sunday in Montpellier. “Our first half in Montpellier was insufficient in defensive intensity and I include the 11 players. I also find that in the intentions of the game, we should have done better, he breathed. We suffered a bit from the events, Montpellier had a good first half but we did not have a good one. “

Haise can not wait to find the audience of Bollaert

The coach of RC Lens is especially aware that he can count on the return of the public from Bollaert. It makes him happy. “The very good news is that after a month we find our home audience, it makes us all happy,” he admitted. Playing behind closed doors is painful. It’s up to us to redo a real complete and successful service to resume our journey. We have to find the intensity that we are used to putting in matches. “

The adversity of FC Metz is not taken lightly in Artois. “Metz has a quality squad, a quality stadium. In a few matches, they have gone close to victory. This team should have a lot more points, Haise admitted. There is a lot of athletic response in Metz. This team will not stay where it is, I am sure. That’s why we have to play a big game. “

to summarize

RC Lens coach Franck Haise was present at a press conference two days before the reception of FC Metz in Bollaert as part of the 11th day of Ligue 1 (3 p.m.). The coach of Sang et Or notably mentioned the absentees.

“We humans, with all our access to technology, can’t make something with a nanoscale architecture as intricate as a pearl,” said Robert Hovden, U-M assistant professor of materials science and engineering and an author on the paper. “So we can learn a lot by studying how pearls go from disordered nothingness to this remarkably symmetrical structure.”

The analysis was done in collaboration with researchers at the Australian National University, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Western Norway University and Cornell University.

Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the study found that a pearl’s symmetry becomes more and more precise as it builds, answering centuries-old questions about how the disorder at its center becomes a sort of perfection.

Layers of nacre, the iridescent and extremely durable organic-inorganic composite that also makes up the shells of oysters and other mollusks, build on a shard of aragonite that surrounds an organic center. The layers, which make up more than 90% of a pearl’s volume, become progressively thinner and more closely matched as they build outward from the center.

Perhaps the most surprising finding is that mollusks maintain the symmetry of their pearls by adjusting the thickness of each layer of nacre. If one layer is thicker, the next tends to be thinner, and vice versa. The pearl pictured in the study contains 2,615 finely matched layers of nacre, deposited over 548 days.

“These thin, smooth layers of nacre look a little like bed sheets, with organic matter in between,” Hovden said. “There’s interaction between each layer, and we hypothesize that that interaction is what enables the system to correct as it goes along.”

The team also uncovered details about how the interaction between layers works. A mathematical analysis of the pearl’s layers show that they follow a phenomenon known as “1/f noise,” where a series of events that seem to be random are connected, with each new event influenced by the one before it. 1/f noise has been shown to govern a wide variety of natural and human-made processes including seismic activity, economic markets, electricity, physics and even classical music.

“When you roll dice, for example, every roll is completely independent and disconnected from every other roll. But 1/f noise is different in that each event is linked,” Hovden said. “We can’t predict it, but we can see a structure in the chaos. And within that structure are complex mechanisms that enable a pearl’s thousands of layers of nacre to coalesce toward order and precision.”

The team found that pearls lack true long-range order — the kind of carefully planned symmetry that keeps the hundreds of layers in brick buildings consistent. Instead, pearls exhibit medium-range order, maintaining symmetry for around 20 layers at a time. This is enough to maintain consistency and durability over the thousands of layers that make up a pearl.

The team gathered their observations by studying Akoya “keshi” pearls, produced by the Pinctada imbricata fucata oyster near the Eastern shoreline of Australia. They selected these particular pearls, which measure around 50 millimeters in diameter, because they form naturally, as opposed to bead-cultured pearls, which have an artificial center. Each pearl was cut with a diamond wire saw into sections measuring three to five millimeters in diameter, then polished and examined under an electron microscope.

Hovden says the study’s findings could help inform next-generation materials with precisely layered nanoscale architecture.

“When we build something like a brick building, we can build in periodicity through careful planning and measuring and templating,” he said. “Mollusks can achieve similar results on the nanoscale by using a different strategy. So we have a lot to learn from them, and that knowledge could help us make stronger, lighter materials in the future.”
