El tsunami revolucionario/The Revolutionary Tsunami

Artículo Tomado de Un Diario Venezolano; (El Universal) Sección Opinión

Autora: THAYS PEÑALVER.  Tema de Dominio Público.

Edición: Franero 2011

 

Desde que el primer tsunami fue conocido por Latinoamérica en 1992 cuando olas devastadoras impactaron sobre Nicaragua, pasando por otras gigantescas que arrasaron a Japón, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India y Tailandia ningún tsunami ha sido tan devastador como el tsunami revolucionario. Este último logró más muertos por arma de fuego, que la suma de lo que lograra la naturaleza en 17 países. Hoy, después de 11 años vivimos en una permanente crisis humanitaria, que ha traído médicos extranjeros para asistirnos, pero a diferencia de las tragedias naturales, estos no se van y a esa ayuda "desinteresada" debemos pagarla en "dólares fuertes" a tal punto que este año les estaremos dando 3.650 millones de dólares, más que el presupuesto correspondiente a la salud venezolana. 

Como en toda tragedia, a la nuestra más de 10 países han "sumado sus esfuerzos" para construir 2 millones de viviendas a los afectados. Este generoso esfuerzo se le pagará a los chinos, cubanos, bielorrusos, brasileños, turcos, uruguayos, argentinos, iraníes y rusos con los siempre bien recibidos "dólares petroleros" bajo la mirada complaciente de los revolucionarios, incapaces de pegar un ladrillo. Y de la misma manera en esta tragedia humanitaria, los extranjeros nos proporcionan también la comida pues los campos venezolanos y la ganadería quedaron aniquilados por el devastador tsunami. 

Mientras tanto, los venezolanos vivimos horrorizados en nuestro "Chernobil tropical" esperando que de un momento a otro desde la planta nuclear de Miraflores nos pongan a todos en orbita cualquier domingo o en cualquier cadena. Tampoco sabemos si lograrán enfriarse los reactores del Ministerio de Finanzas, donde se juega lo poco que queda de nuestra economía. 

Lamento la comparación en esta hora aciaga de los japoneses, pero es que hay pueblos, cuya única riqueza es su inmensa capacidad de lucha, el respeto al trabajo y afán de progreso y superación. Japón superó 2 bombas atómicas, cuatro accidentes en sus plantas nucleares, así como superará estos nuevos también. Japón se ha reconstruido por los bombardeos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial virtualmente desde las cenizas de sus casas de madera, pero lo hicieron incluso contra la radiación atómica, 21 terremotos mayores, 14 erupciones volcánicas, 12 tifones y tres tsunamis, contra las pandemias de los cerdos, los equinos y las aves, mientras del otro lado del mundo, Venezuela todavía conserva las heridas de una inundación. Por eso hay pueblos que han caído no una sino varias veces y siempre se han levantado con la frente en alto, son pueblos que cuentan solo con sus manos para levantar a sus países sin ninguna riqueza en sus suelos y que solamente reciben una bolsa de comida, cuando la naturaleza les hace una mala pasada, porque no conciben la prebenda y el regalo como un modo de ganarse la vida, por eso básicamente es por lo que surgen en el concierto de las naciones entre las más prósperas, civilizadas y con una inmensa dignidad. 

Pido una oración por el noble y sufrido, pero orgulloso pueblo de Japón. Que Dios Todopoderoso les de fortaleza para afrontar esta nueva tragedia, de la que seguramente surgirán más unidos en el esfuerzo y en su amor por el trabajo. Para mi país pido una reflexión: hay pueblos que son arrasados por la fuerza de la naturaleza, de eso nadie puede escapar, pero hay países que se dejan arrastrar por la destructiva fuerza de la "naturaleza humana", solo que contra el yugo de un dictador tercermundista y sus deseos enfermos de perpetuidad en el poder, sí se puede luchar.

The Revolutionary Tsunami

 

Since  the first  tsunami was known in Latin America in 1992 whendevastating waves struck on Nicaragua, through other giant thatswept Japan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand no tsunamiwas so devastating as the tsunami revolutionary. The latter resulted in more deaths by firearms, that the sum of what nature achieved in 17 countries. Today, after 11 years we lived in a permanenthumanitarian crisis that has brought foreign physicians to assist us,but unlike natural tragedies, they are not going and that helps"disinterested" must pay the "strong dollar " to the extent that Thisyear we will be giving U.S. $ 3,650 million more than the budget forhealth in Venezuela.

As in every tragedy, to our more than 10 countries have "joined forces" to build 2 million houses for those affected. This generous effort will be paid to the Chinese, Cubans, Belarus, Brazil, Turkey, Uruguay, Argentina, Iran and Russia with the always welcome "oil dollars" under the complacent gaze of the revolutionaries, incapable of hitting a brick. And in the same way in this humanitarian tragedy, foreigners also give us food for Venezuelan fields and livestock were destroyed by the devastating tsunami.

Meanwhile, Venezuelans live horrified at our "tropical Chernobyl" hoping that at any moment from the nuclear plant Miraflores put us all into orbit on any Sunday or on any string. We do not know if it failed to dampen the reactors of the Ministry of Finance, where he plays what is left of our economy.

I regret the unfortunate comparison in this hour of the Japanese, but there are people, whose only asset is his immense capacity for struggle, respect for work and desire for progress and improvement. Japan exceeded 2 atomic bombs, four accidents in nuclear plants and exceeds these new as well. Japan was rebuilt by the bombings of World War II virtually from the ashes of their wooden houses, but they did even against nuclear radiation, 21 major earthquakes, volcanic eruptions 14, 12 typhoons and three tsunamis, pandemics of pigs, horses and birds, while the other side of the world, Venezuela still has the wounds of a flood. So there are people who have fallen not once but several times and have always been raised with our heads held high, are people who have only their hands to lift their countries without any wealth in their soil and that only get a bag of food when nature makes them a trick, because they conceive the perks and the gift as a way of earning a living, so basically it encountered in the concert of nations among the most prosperous, civilized and a great dignity.

Request a prayer for the noble and suffering, but the proud people of Japan. May Almighty God give them strength to face this new tragedy, which will surely emerge more united in their effort and their love for the job. For my country I ask a question: are people who are devastated by the force of nature that nobody can escape, but there are countries that are drawn by the destructive force of "human nature", only the yoke of a Third World dictator and sick desires perpetuity in power, they can fight.

THIS YEAR.. BERLIN HAVE A GREAT SHOW OF FILMES.. WHO? BERLINALE!!!

Since 1986, the Berlin International Film Festival has presented the Berlinale Camera to film personalities or institutions to which it feels particularly indebted and wishes to express its thanks. At the 61st Berlin International Film Festival Israeli film pioneer Lia van Leer, outgoing president of ARTE Jérôme Clément as well as Berlin’s arthouse cinema owners Franz and Rosemarie Stadler will be awarded Berlinale Cameras.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Berlinale has been even more committed to supporting the next generation of film makers since 2006, when it introduced the Best First Feature Award. The award is endowed with 50,000 Euros, donated by the GWFF, a society dedicated to safeguarding film and television rights. The prize money is to be split between the producer and the director of the winning film. Additionally, the director will be awarded with a high-quality viewfinder as both a useful instrument and memorable trophy. This year's jury members are Bettina Brokemper, Assaf Gavron and Michèle Ohayon.

  It’s a tradition for the Berlinale to present restored masterpieces in theBerlinale Special programme: Thirty-five years after its premiere, the Berlinale will screen a 4K digital restoration of Martin Scorsese’s cult film Taxi Driver. Writer and director Paul Schrader, who wrote the film's screenplay, will present the restored version at the world premiere in Berlin together with restoration expert Grover Crisp of Sony Pictures.

 

Under the title “Framespotting – Filmmakers Positioning Themselves”, the ninth Berlinale Talent Campus opens its doors to 350 of the most gifted up-and-coming professionals in the international world of film. Programme manager Matthijs Wouter Knol and project manager Christine Tröstrum explain in an interview what is meant by aided discovery of one’s position, how the Campus and its guest experts can contribute to the process and why choosing a direction isn’t necessarily restricting oneself.

La Historia del Cine  (Parte  II )

DESARROLLO   DEL   CINE  EN   COLOR  


Los experimentos con película de color habían comenzado ya en 1906, pero sólo se había usado como curiosidad. Los sistemas ensayados, como el Technicolor de dos colores, fueron decepcionantes y fracasaban en el intento de entusiasmar al público. Pero hacia 1933 el Technicolor se había perfeccionado, con un sistema de tres colores comercializable, empleado por vez primera en la película La feria de la vanidad (1935), de Rouben Mamoulian, adaptación de la novela de William Makepeace Thackeray.

 

La popularidad del color aumentó, y durante los años cuarenta se empleó sobre todo en una serie de musicales clásicos de la MGM (Metro Goldwyn Mayer), entre los que destaca Easter Parade (Desfile de Pascua, 1948), de Charles Walters. En la década de 1950 el uso del color se generalizó tanto que prácticamente el blanco y negro quedó relegado para películas de bajo presupuesto que buscaban un realismo sereno, como Marty (1955) de Delbert Mann, sobre las aspiraciones de un carnicero del Bronx, o El hombre del brazo de oro (1955), de Otto Preminger, en la que se contaba la historia de un drogadicto.

 

A partir de los años sesenta, el blanco y negro quedó para crear efectos especiales en películas como Psicosis (1960) de Hitchcock, o La última película (1971), de Peter Bogdanovich. Más recientemente, lo hemos podido ver casi siempre en películas con pretensiones artísticas, como El hombre elefante (1980), de David Lynch, Toro salvaje (1980), de Martin Scorsese, La ley de la calle (1983), de Francis Ford Coppola, o Zelig (1983), de Woody Allen.

 Una película cinematográfica es una larga cinta de material flexible y transparente, que sirve de soporte a una o más capas de emulsión, sobre las que se fijan una serie de fotografías tomadas por la cámara filmadora. Dichas fotografías son ampliadas por un proyector, que restituye la sensación del movimiento original sobre la pantalla.

1823 – Culminando una serie de búsquedas y descubrimientos parciales efectuados por distintos investigadores, el francés Nicéforo Niepce, realizó una de sus primeras fotografías, con un material de sensibilidad tan baja, que debía descubrir el objetivo durante catorce horas, a pleno sol, para fijar la imagen de una naturaleza muerta.

1825 – Fitton y el Dr. Paris (Inglaterra), construyeron el primer juguete óptico, basado en estudios anteriores sobre la persistencia de la visión: el "taumátropo".

1832 – El belga Plateau y el austríaco Stampfer construyeron pequeños aparatos que reproducían el movimiento a partir de las imágenes fijas en que aquél había sido descompuesto.

1840 – A partir de ese año, aproximadamente, el tiempo de pose de las fotografías se había reducido ya a unos veinte minutos, gracias a la mayor sensibilidad de los negativos.

1895 – Los hermanos Lumiére (Francia) efectuaron durante la noche del 28 de diciembre, las primeras proyecciones públicas con el aparato de su invención, el "cinematógrafo". Esta es la fecha oficial del nacimiento del cine.

PELÍCULAS DE UNA BOBINA  
En 1896 el ilusionista francés Georges Méliès demostró que el cine no sólo servía para grabar la realidad, sino que también podía recrearla o falsearla. Con estas imaginativas premisas, hizo una serie de películas que exploraban el potencial narrativo del nuevo medio, dando inicio al cine de una sola bobina. En un estudio en las afueras de París, Méliès rodó el primer gran filme puesto en escena cuya proyección duró cerca de quince minutos: L’Affaire Dreyfus (El caso Dreyfus, 1899) y filmó Cendrillas (Cenicienta,1900) en 20 escenas.

LAS PELÍCULAS MUDAS  
Entre 1909 y 1912 todos los aspectos de la naciente industria estuvieron bajo el control de un trust estadounidense, la MPPC (Motion Pictures Patents Company), formado por los principales productores. Este grupo limitó la duración de las películas a una o dos bobinas y rechazó la petición de los actores de aparecer en los títulos de crédito. El trust fue desmontado con éxito en 1912 por la ley antitrust del gobierno, que permitió a los productores independientes formar sus propias compañías de distribución y exhibición, por lo que pudieron llegar hasta el público estadounidense obras europeas de calidad, como Quo vadis? (1912, de Enrico Guazzoni), de Italia, o La reina Isabel (1912), de Francia, protagonizada por la actriz Sarah Bernhardt.

1st World AIDS day.

                                     TAKE ACTION ON 1 DECEMBER ‘10

Publishing by: @franero83

Edit by: world AIDS day. Official Web Site

 Over 90,000 people are living with HIV in the UK and new infections continue every year. World AIDS Day 2010 is all about raising awareness to tackle HIV prejudice and help stop the spread of HIV.

 

 

 

People are often surprised to hear that what it is really like to live with HIV. Advances in treatment mean that many people diagnosed today can expect a near normal life expectancy if they get diagnosed early and take treatment correctly. However side effects of daily treatment can have an impact. For many people with HIV it is the social consequences that can have the biggest impact - dealing with prejudice, money worries or how to tell friends and family.

The biography of the Rolling Stones

When two young children of friends met again after three years of hiatus in a wagon train making the trip between London and Dartford, could not suspect that iban to engage one of the great partnerships in popular music. They were Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who by then was calling for Richard, angry with his father, had removed as a sign of rebellion "s" from his real surname.
