Almost a decade has passed since the attacks of September 11, 2001. At the turn of the 2010s, the Afghan sanctuary turned into a huge battlefield. Supported by Al-Qaida fighters, the Taliban are leading the insurgency against US coalition forces and their Afghan allies. The terrorists’ new lair, in the tribal areas of Waziristan, a mountainous region in northwest Pakistan, has become an open-air tomb for Osama Bin Laden’s organization. Pounded by American drones, the group is also in difficulty outside its territory. The last attack carried out by Al-Qaida in a Western country, which left 56 dead and more than 700 wounded in London, in the middle of the Iraq war, dates back to July 7, 2005. Six years, an eternity.

It is in this context that Bin Laden decides to take back in hand the strategy of the organization which he leads from his last refuge in Abbottabad, Pakistan. In the first months of 2010, the Saudi official formalized his major projects and made his aggiornamento, as evidenced by his correspondence found after his death, fully declassified in 2017, and among which The world made a selection. Among the areas mentioned: external operations (“opex”), whose record, he deplores, is not brilliant: “Because of my caution on the subject, I avoided getting involved in plans for foreign operations. But when problems arose in their management, I found myself forced to take part. ”

Focus on the American enemy

The head of Al-Qaida intends to reaffirm his authority by redirecting the attacks on the American sworn enemy, his priority target, instead of dispersing efforts on secondary fronts. He asks his lieutenants to develop the office of opex by training the executives of tomorrow. These would then be sent to the United States to specialize in areas useful to the organization – chemistry, aviation, etc. – to eventually carry out attacks.

Waziristan, a mountainous region in northwestern Pakistan, in 2007, the refuge of the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban, and the main body of Al-Qaida troops.

In February 2010, Bin Laden instructed the Africa manager in the opex office, Younis Al-Mauritani, to plan operations against American oil tankers. Considered a “Young prodigy” within Al-Qaida, the Mauritanian responds to his leader that he would like to add an objective to his mission: Europe. “I have a personal vendetta against those who harmed the Prophet”, he explains in a letter of March 28, 2010, with reference to the countries involved in the controversy around cartoons of Muhammad from 2005. His project? A simultaneous campaign of terror against American and European objectives. Although France is not mentioned, a German recruit of Al-Mauritani will tell that the latter had implied having men in France and Italy.

To certify furs in terms of animal welfare and environmental protection, the International Fur Federation (IFF) announces the deployment of a certification ranging from breeding to distribution, and integrating tanning and manufacturing. A vast project started four years ago.

Furmark

The program, which is particularly intended to provide a framework for furs intended for the luxury market, is based on existing certifications in Europe and North America. The IFF stresses that the certification will be strictly applied, with visits and assessments of sites in the sector.

“The most demanding standards are taken as a model, such as the European Welfur breeding control program, recognized by the European Commission and integrated into the standards of French luxury and fashion groups”, indicates the federation. “These standards are further built on a solid scientific basis provided by third parties (veterinarians, universities etc.). Furmark certified products must also be supplied by accredited finishers and dyers who meet the SafeFur standard (covering durability, control of the use of chemicals, reduction of polluting emissions and product safety), which includes tests carried out by third parties including those requested in other sectors (such as Oeko-Tex) “.

The IFF specifies that the French group LVMH has brought “invaluable” expertise and time to the development of certification over the past four years. Major brands have also taken part in the project through traceability platforms operated by the fur industry, led by the ChainPoint system.

Presentation of the Furmark certification

This new certification is born at a time when fur is experiencing an increase in positions against it. Israel recently announced a ban on its trade, while countries like Norway and France have decided to close their farms. But the movement is particularly illustrated by brands and retailers renouncing fur, MyTheresa has just joined an already strong list of Canada Goose, Valentino, Prada, SMCP (Sandro, Maje, Claudie Pierlot) or even Macy’s.

At the heart of these decisions, the fate of some 100 million animals on which the industry is based, including 37 million in the EU, Denmark, Finland and Poland being the main suppliers after China. The anti-fur NGO Humane Society International estimated in 2018 that European farms were 34.7 million mink, 2.7 million foxes, 166,000 raccoons and 227,000 chinchillas. Twenty-one countries in the Union are said to have mink farms to date.

Furmark

Via Furmark, the industry now intends to reassure brands and consumers in the face of the scandals that have splashed certain farms. “For those involved in the fur and luxury goods sector, particularly in France, it is a question of responding to the demand for a trusted brand from consumers and of maintaining a dynamic of the fight against polluting, synthetic and derived products. of the fast-fashion “, indicates the sector.

Sumptuous season opening at the Philharmonie de Paris which hosted for the first time in Paris, Wednesday 1is September, the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra. A areopagus of 107 musicians from the best German symphonic phalanges. An explicit desire on the part of Wagner, displayed at the opening of the Bayreuther Festspiele in August 1876, but especially from 1886, that this discreet armada of musicians entirely devoted to his cause, capable of rehearsing and playing under cover in the famous “abyss mystique ”, this orchestra pit, unique in the world, nestled under the stage. Due to exceptional acoustics, the invisible music dies everywhere and nowhere, carrying the composer’s dream of “total art” around a show entirely centered on the stage and the dramaturgical action. Nothing to do with the covidian distancing required on the plateau of the Great Hall Pierre Boulez.

Read the story: Richard Wagner, victim of the pandemic

Sanitary passes, disinfected hands and face masks, the spectators responded to this vast exclusively Wagnerian program that the maestro Andris Nelsons defends, crowned by his magnificent performance of 2010 in Bayreuth in Lohengrin, of which he addresses at once the famous prelude.

The melody gradually gains the woods and then the bass of the orchestra before seizing it in a powerful tutti. The return to the initial pianissimo is done without the slightest loss of substance.

This ritual of absence is a Last Supper radiated by the harrowing shrillness of a trumpet in fa, the brass opening the theme of the Grail, to which Andris Nelsons gives the weight of a Lutheran choir

This week’s selection of new VOD and streaming releases is inexplicably packed to the brim with a bunch of horror. August: It’s the new Halloween.

From Neil Blomkamp’s supernatural horror thriller Demonic, VFX artist-turned-director Peter Sefchik’s feature debut Behemoth, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the retro slasher The Last Matinee and more, there are plenty of new premieres this week (Candyman notwithstanding — you’ll have to see that one in the theaters) that’ll leave you gripped to your sofa seat this weekend.

To help you get a handle on what’s new and available — including less gruesome outings like Netflix’s He’s All That and the second John Cena movie of the summer, Vacation Friends — here’s our guide to the movies you can watch on video on demand and streaming this weekend.


The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Where to watch: Available to rent for $19.99 on Amazon Prime Video, Apple, and Vudu

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the third installment in the successful Conjuring horror franchise. Based on the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson — one of the most sensational and terrifying cases involving the real-life Warrens — Ed and Lorraine are pitted in a fight for the soul of a young boy that will bring the pair face to face with evil incarnate itself. From our review,

On paper, The Conjuring movies are pretty old hat when it comes to horror, to the point where they almost sound boring. In the least-generous reading, they return to the same “based on a true haunting” fodder that gave us The Amityville Horror and its many imitators. But watch them, and they make a great case for why originality isn’t nearly as important as execution. James Wan, who directed the first two films, is largely responsible for the franchise’s signature look. He brought a decades-long career in horror and a knack for understated imagery to the series’ portrayal of supernatural investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). His talent created a horror franchise that manages to feel richer than most of them, even as it’s continually being mined for spinoffs. Unfortunately, the latest installment, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, lacks both Wan’s direction and the richness that make the first two Conjuring films so enjoyable.

Demonic

Where to watch: Available to rent for $6.99 on Amazon Prime Video, Apple, and Vudu

District 9 and Chappie director Neil Blomkamp returns with the supernatural horror thriller Demonic starring Carly Pope (Elysium) as Carly, a young woman who ventures into the mind of her imprisoned mother using an experimental virtual reality therapy and inadvertently unleashes terrifying demons hidden deep within her subconscious. Despite their being black-ops soldiers fighting in the name of God, the movie is an acquired taste. From our review,

Demonic is a frustrating movie, because in spite of all the problems, the world Blomkamp sets up is exciting and original. The idea of near-future exorcisms in a militant sci-fi world, where even the church has a SWAT team, and demons can use virtual reality as a bridge to physical space, is fascinating. The idea of a person being stuck in a coma and forced into a VR nightmare in the name of science is terrifying. But instead of those great ideas, Blomkamp grafts an uninteresting family drama over the top, and then makes the entirety of Demonic about that skin instead of digging into the meat.

The Colony

Where to watch: Available to rent for $5.99 on Amazon Prime Video, Apple, and Vudu

Tim Fehlbaum’s sci-fi drama The Colony stars Nora Arnezeder as Blake, the sole survivor of an interstellar expedition tasked with seeding life on a distant planet. Shipwrecked on the long-decimated Earth, she’ll have to decide the fate of the planet’s remaining populace and weigh the very survival of the human race.

Behemoth

Where to watch: In theaters and available to rent for $3.99 on Vudu, $4.99 on Amazon Prime Video and Apple

VFX artist-turned-director Peter Sefchik’s feature debut Behemoth stars Josh Eisenberg as Joshua Riverton, a biochemist who blows the whistle on his former employer after his daughter develops a mysterious illness presumably related to his work. Confronting his old boss, Dr. Woeland (Paul Statman), Joshua ends up holding him hostage after being near-fatally shot. Now on the run from malevolent forces that seem to hound him at every turn, Joshua’s desperation leads him to increasingly more fraught situations in order to save his daughters life … even at the cost of his own sanity. From our review:

Remember those ’90s B-movies that used to air on UPN in the early-morning hours, in that gap of time perfect for stoned college students and kids staying up too late? Behemoth has the best and worst elements of those movies, with a skimpy script and thin characters, but also with an urgently conspiratorial tone and a creatively rendered visual world, packed with rotting faces, insect/human hybrids, and blood spilling out of orifices. There’s a monster extending tentacles of barbed wire, animals covered in sores and rotting flesh, wilting plants and withering flowers. Behemoth intermittently reveals its low $65,000 budget with CGI work that’s a little clunky around the edges, and with production design that feels constrained to empty locations and scant extras. But as the sum of its parts, it has a blunt impact.

He’s All That

Where to watch: Available to stream on Netflix

Mean Girls director Mark Waters takes on what might sound like sacrilege on paper: A remake of the 1999 teen comedy She’s All That. With TikTok celebrity Addison Rae in the role of the cool kid who needs to remake an “ugly duckling” for her school prom, the movie is just about what you expect — but maybe a little better. From our review:

Waters puts less emphasis on objectifying women’s bodies, a problem that really plagued the original, where the boys talked repeatedly about the quality of the female students’ “tits,” and Laney proved her worth to the popular kids by donning a tight-fitting swimsuit. Instead, He’s All That is centered in Padgett’s taste: The idea of making Cameron hot has less to do with augmenting his physical appearance (though he does get a haircut to spruce up his disheveled look), and more about tapping into the parts of his personality that he keeps buried under his gruff exterior.

Vacation Friends

Where to watch: Available to stream on Hulu

Shot over the pandemic, and shifted from a theatrical 20th Century Studios release to a Hulu debut, Vacation Friends is one of those cast-in-a-mold kooky neighbor comedies transplanted to an island resort. Lil Rel Howery and Yvonne Orji star as Ron and Emily, a newly engaged couple who befriend a party-hard couple Marcus and Kyla (John Cena and Search Party’s Meredith Hagner) who cliff dive, sip cocaine-rimmed margaritas, and are totally down to swing. When the trip ends, Ron and Emily think that’s the last time they’ll the pair — for the purposes of their own sanity. But on their wedding day, Marcus and Kyla roll up in deranged style, and hijinks ensue. But the kind of hijinks that are pretty comforting and well executed? While not a revelation like Palm Springs was last year, Vacation Friends’ jokes land and every one is doing the (comedic) work. A dumb Adam-Sandler-brings-his-pals-on-vacation-and-films-a-movie-on-the-side vehicle this is not.

No Man of God

Where to watch: Available to rent for $6.99 on Amazon Prime Video, Apple, and Vudu

Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring) stars in No Man of God as Bill Hagmaier, an FBI analyst sent to interrogate an incarcerated Ted Bundy (Luke Kirby) in hopes of unraveling the psychological origins of the killer’s motivations and provide closure for his victim’s families. Over time, a strange and complicated relationship develops between the two that threatens to endanger any hope of Hagmaier’s goals. Based on actual transcripts of interviews between the real-life Hagmaier and Bundy, No Man of God is sure to pique the interest of anyone still sullen over the fact that Netflix never picked up Mindhunter for a third season.

The Last Matinee

Where to watch: Available to rent for $4.99 on Amazon Prime Video, Apple; $3.99 on Vudu

Director Maxi Contenti’s retro-slasher The Last Matinee follows a small group of theatergoers who find themselves stalked by a vicious hooded killer during an otherwise innocuous screening of a horror film. Packed with gratuitous blood splatter, gore, and frenetic cinematography, The Last Matinee might be the closest thing to a cross between Goodbye Dragon Inn and Scream ever conceived.

And here’s what dropped last Friday:


The Green Knight

Where to watch: In theaters and available to rent for $19.99 on Amazon Prime Video, Apple, and Vudu

David Lowery’s medieval fantasy epic stars Dev Patel as Sir Gawain, the headstrong nephew of King Arthur who yearns for a great adventure through which to assert his chivalric greatness. After being challenged by the otherworldly Green Knight, Gawain venture forth on a quest that will bring him face to face with ghosts, giants, thieves, and more as he is forced to confront the question of what it means to be great, or simply even good, in the first place. From our review,

You could pause The Green Knight at any moment and discover an image worth praising. The film is a showcase for director of photography Andrew Droz Palermo (A Ghost Story), allowing him to storytell through lighting in ways both deeply effective and breathtakingly immersive. Sometimes it’s both in a single scene, such as the Green Knight’s first appearance at Arthur’s court, where the camera cuts between Arthur bathed in celestial light, Gawain in low light, and Guinevere, soaked in darkness. At other junctions in the movie, shadows overtake the frame, allowing for sharp chiaroscuro shots, while jaw-dropping environments filled with rust-colored fog are frightening as much as they are astounding.

Robert Schwentke’s soft-reboot spin-off of the G.I. Joe franchise stars Henry Golding as Snake Eyes in an origin story that pits the fan-favorite ninja character on a quest for revenge. From our review,

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is largely a success in that it does a decent job of making viewers forget that cynicism for two hours, while also embracing the absurdity of a narrative universe spun out of action figures. This film isn’t going to sell anyone on a new G.I. Joe movie franchise, but it’s maybe the best possible version of a movie designed to test those waters.

Hugh Jackman (Logan) stars in Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy’s feature directorial debut Reminiscence as Nick Bannister, a private investigator who alongside his assistant Watts (Thandiwe Newton) specializes in navigating the minds of his clients in search of answers. Think Inception, but less emphasis on corporate espionage and impossible architecture. After crossing paths with a mysterious client (Rebecca Ferguson), Nick’s quest to solve her disappearance morphs into an obsessive odyssey that blurs the lines between past, present, reality, and fiction.

Annette

Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) stars in Leos Carax’s opera drama film Annette as Henry McHenry, a fierce stand-up comedian who falls in love with a world-famous soprano named Ann (Marion Cotillard). The couple give birth to a daughter named Annette, represented by a wooden marionette puppet, and the movie only gets weirder from there. Featuring a screenplay and score penned by Ron and Russel Mael of the band Sparks, Annette has divided critics in a way that sounds absolutely in tune with Carax’s career. From our review:

At two hours and 20 minutes, this musical rambles into curious tangents, few of which pay off in satisfying ways. But the film is never boring, because Carax brings the primal imagination that made his film Holy Motors astounding, and turns it toward the expectations of Hollywood romance. The result is a twisted love child that refuses to sing a sensible song. Perhaps that was the point. Maybe Annette is less a movie and more a mood. Perhaps the bookends that serve to introduce the cast and orchestra intend to urge us to enjoy the experience, and not fret on what it meant. Or maybe Carax’s latest is accidentally indecipherable.

Jason Momoa (Aquaman) stars in Brian Andrew Mendoza’s action thriller Sweet Girl as Ray Cooper, the father of a young daughter (Isabela Merced) struggling to keep his family together in the wake of his wife’s death.

Ryan Reynolds (Free Guy) and Samuel L.

Joined this time by a cast of supporting performances courtesy of Tom Hopper, Morgan Freeman, and Antonio Banderas, the sequel finds Bryce returning to his life as a bodyguard once again, this time for Darius’ equally homicidal wife Sonia (Salma Hayek).

The Water Man

Actor-director David Oyelowo’s directorial debut The Water Man stars Lonnie Chavis as Gunner, the preadolescent son of a Navy veteran (Oyelowo) who embarks on a journey to find a mythic figure with the key to immortality to save his ailing mother (Rosario Dawson). From our review,

If not for the uptempo rhythm, The Water Man’s thin plotting would make it a slog. If not for Oyelowo’s handsomely mounted camera capturing the forest in supernatural blues and reds, the audience’s attention might wander to their phones. Thankfully, the well-executed components support the fairy tale when the tale itself runs short. And so do the endearing performances the new director pulls from the young Chavis and Miller. In the energetically adventurous The Water Man, Oyelowo takes the route less traveled by actors-turned-directors to fashion a highly flawed but promising lesson for dealing with mortality — a moral that will hit very close to home for an unfortunate number of families.

The Girl Who Got Away

This week’s selection of new VOD and streaming releases is inexplicably packed to the brim with a bunch of horror. August: It’s the new Halloween.

From Neil Blomkamp’s supernatural horror thriller Demonic, VFX artist-turned-director Peter Sefchik’s feature debut Behemoth, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the retro slasher The Last Matinee and more, there are plenty of new premieres this week (Candyman notwithstanding — you’ll have to see that one in the theaters) that’ll leave you gripped to your sofa seat this weekend.

To help you get a handle on what’s new and available — including less gruesome outings like Netflix’s He’s All That and the second John Cena movie of the summer, Vacation Friends — here’s our guide to the movies you can watch on video on demand and streaming this weekend.


The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Where to watch: Available to rent for $19.99 on Amazon Prime Video, Apple, and Vudu

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the third installment in the successful Conjuring horror franchise. Based on the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson — one of the most sensational and terrifying cases involving the real-life Warrens — Ed and Lorraine are pitted in a fight for the soul of a young boy that will bring the pair face to face with evil incarnate itself. From our review,

On paper, The Conjuring movies are pretty old hat when it comes to horror, to the point where they almost sound boring. In the least-generous reading, they return to the same “based on a true haunting” fodder that gave us The Amityville Horror and its many imitators. But watch them, and they make a great case for why originality isn’t nearly as important as execution. James Wan, who directed the first two films, is largely responsible for the franchise’s signature look. He brought a decades-long career in horror and a knack for understated imagery to the series’ portrayal of supernatural investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). His talent created a horror franchise that manages to feel richer than most of them, even as it’s continually being mined for spinoffs. Unfortunately, the latest installment, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, lacks both Wan’s direction and the richness that make the first two Conjuring films so enjoyable.

Demonic

District 9 and Chappie director Neil Blomkamp returns with the supernatural horror thriller Demonic starring Carly Pope (Elysium) as Carly, a young woman who ventures into the mind of her imprisoned mother using an experimental virtual reality therapy and inadvertently unleashes terrifying demons hidden deep within her subconscious. Despite their being black-ops soldiers fighting in the name of God, the movie is an acquired taste. From our review,

Demonic is a frustrating movie, because in spite of all the problems, the world Blomkamp sets up is exciting and original. The idea of near-future exorcisms in a militant sci-fi world, where even the church has a SWAT team, and demons can use virtual reality as a bridge to physical space, is fascinating. The idea of a person being stuck in a coma and forced into a VR nightmare in the name of science is terrifying. But instead of those great ideas, Blomkamp grafts an uninteresting family drama over the top, and then makes the entirety of Demonic about that skin instead of digging into the meat.

The Colony

Tim Fehlbaum’s sci-fi drama The Colony stars Nora Arnezeder as Blake, the sole survivor of an interstellar expedition tasked with seeding life on a distant planet. Shipwrecked on the long-decimated Earth, she’ll have to decide the fate of the planet’s remaining populace and weigh the very survival of the human race.

Behemoth

Where to watch: In theaters and available to rent for $3.99 on Vudu, $4.99 on Amazon Prime Video and Apple

VFX artist-turned-director Peter Sefchik’s feature debut Behemoth stars Josh Eisenberg as Joshua Riverton, a biochemist who blows the whistle on his former employer after his daughter develops a mysterious illness presumably related to his work. Confronting his old boss, Dr. Woeland (Paul Statman), Joshua ends up holding him hostage after being near-fatally shot. Now on the run from malevolent forces that seem to hound him at every turn, Joshua’s desperation leads him to increasingly more fraught situations in order to save his daughters life … even at the cost of his own sanity. From our review:

Remember those ’90s B-movies that used to air on UPN in the early-morning hours, in that gap of time perfect for stoned college students and kids staying up too late? Behemoth has the best and worst elements of those movies, with a skimpy script and thin characters, but also with an urgently conspiratorial tone and a creatively rendered visual world, packed with rotting faces, insect/human hybrids, and blood spilling out of orifices. There’s a monster extending tentacles of barbed wire, animals covered in sores and rotting flesh, wilting plants and withering flowers. Behemoth intermittently reveals its low $65,000 budget with CGI work that’s a little clunky around the edges, and with production design that feels constrained to empty locations and scant extras. But as the sum of its parts, it has a blunt impact.

He’s All That

Where to watch: Available to stream on Netflix

Mean Girls director Mark Waters takes on what might sound like sacrilege on paper: A remake of the 1999 teen comedy She’s All That. With TikTok celebrity Addison Rae in the role of the cool kid who needs to remake an “ugly duckling” for her school prom, the movie is just about what you expect — but maybe a little better. From our review:

Waters puts less emphasis on objectifying women’s bodies, a problem that really plagued the original, where the boys talked repeatedly about the quality of the female students’ “tits,” and Laney proved her worth to the popular kids by donning a tight-fitting swimsuit. Instead, He’s All That is centered in Padgett’s taste: The idea of making Cameron hot has less to do with augmenting his physical appearance (though he does get a haircut to spruce up his disheveled look), and more about tapping into the parts of his personality that he keeps buried under his gruff exterior.

Vacation Friends

Where to watch: Available to stream on Hulu

Shot over the pandemic, and shifted from a theatrical 20th Century Studios release to a Hulu debut, Vacation Friends is one of those cast-in-a-mold kooky neighbor comedies transplanted to an island resort. Lil Rel Howery and Yvonne Orji star as Ron and Emily, a newly engaged couple who befriend a party-hard couple Marcus and Kyla (John Cena and Search Party’s Meredith Hagner) who cliff dive, sip cocaine-rimmed margaritas, and are totally down to swing. When the trip ends, Ron and Emily think that’s the last time they’ll the pair — for the purposes of their own sanity. But on their wedding day, Marcus and Kyla roll up in deranged style, and hijinks ensue. But the kind of hijinks that are pretty comforting and well executed? While not a revelation like Palm Springs was last year, Vacation Friends’ jokes land and every one is doing the (comedic) work. A dumb Adam-Sandler-brings-his-pals-on-vacation-and-films-a-movie-on-the-side vehicle this is not.

No Man of God

Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring) stars in No Man of God as Bill Hagmaier, an FBI analyst sent to interrogate an incarcerated Ted Bundy (Luke Kirby) in hopes of unraveling the psychological origins of the killer’s motivations and provide closure for his victim’s families. Over time, a strange and complicated relationship develops between the two that threatens to endanger any hope of Hagmaier’s goals. Based on actual transcripts of interviews between the real-life Hagmaier and Bundy, No Man of God is sure to pique the interest of anyone still sullen over the fact that Netflix never picked up Mindhunter for a third season.

The Last Matinee

Where to watch: Available to rent for $4.99 on Amazon Prime Video, Apple; $3.99 on Vudu

Director Maxi Contenti’s retro-slasher The Last Matinee follows a small group of theatergoers who find themselves stalked by a vicious hooded killer during an otherwise innocuous screening of a horror film. Packed with gratuitous blood splatter, gore, and frenetic cinematography, The Last Matinee might be the closest thing to a cross between Goodbye Dragon Inn and Scream ever conceived.

And here’s what dropped last Friday:


The Green Knight

David Lowery’s medieval fantasy epic stars Dev Patel as Sir Gawain, the headstrong nephew of King Arthur who yearns for a great adventure through which to assert his chivalric greatness. After being challenged by the otherworldly Green Knight, Gawain venture forth on a quest that will bring him face to face with ghosts, giants, thieves, and more as he is forced to confront the question of what it means to be great, or simply even good, in the first place. From our review,

You could pause The Green Knight at any moment and discover an image worth praising. The film is a showcase for director of photography Andrew Droz Palermo (A Ghost Story), allowing him to storytell through lighting in ways both deeply effective and breathtakingly immersive. Sometimes it’s both in a single scene, such as the Green Knight’s first appearance at Arthur’s court, where the camera cuts between Arthur bathed in celestial light, Gawain in low light, and Guinevere, soaked in darkness. At other junctions in the movie, shadows overtake the frame, allowing for sharp chiaroscuro shots, while jaw-dropping environments filled with rust-colored fog are frightening as much as they are astounding.

NEW YORK – New York Yankees Spanish-speaking Rickie Ricardo rescued his English radio colleague, John Sterling, who was trapped in his car Wednesday night as it flooded Wednesday night after being stranded when trying to drive home.

Sterling and Ricardo worked the last game of the Yankees in their visit to the Los Angeles Angels from Yankee Stadium because the radio teams do not yet have permission to travel with the teams as part of the protocols for COVID-19.

On Thursday, Ricardo related to WFAN that Sterling, 83, was the first to leave the stadium after the conclusion of the game at around 10 pm ET, while Ricardo stayed for a while for the post-game program.

Ricardo said that when he finally left the park, the water in the Yankee Stadium lobby was up to his ankles and that he found several streets closed and flooded as a result of the rains from the remnants of Hurricane Ida. The storm killed at least 12 people in New York, including one who drowned in a car and 11 more in condo basements, police said.

Sterling’s broadcast partner, Suzyn Waldman, called Ricardo when he was trying to find a free way to his home in New Jersey and told him that Sterling was in his car on River Road in Edgewater, New Jersey, just over the George Bridge. Washington.

“I’ve seen River Road flood into Edgewater,” Ricardo recounted. “And with the kind of rain we had, I just imagined what was going on, so I said to Suzy, ‘I’m on my way. I more or less know where (Sterling) lives. I’ll see where it is and what I can do. ‘

Ricardo called Sterling and kept him on the phone until he found him in one of about 25 cars stuck in the flood, which covered the tires of most vehicles. Ricardo, who drives a Jeep, stopped behind Sterling’s car and helped him out. He said it took him about an hour to find a clear path to Sterling’s apartment, which was about half a mile (800 meters) away, but that in the end, he was able to get him safely.

Michael Kay, who broadcasts Yankees games on television, also recounted that he had trouble getting home Wednesday night in a tweet saying he planned to wait for the storm to pass at Fordham University in the Bronx. During the game, he also posted photos of the Yankee Stadium outfield completely completely underwater.

The situation was detected on Wednesday night and today the authorities were on the ground to discover the origin and the offender, which is the municipal company AGERE. However, a source from AGERE told O MINHO that one of its pipelines was covered with rubble, causing the discharge and the company will file a complaint with the Public Ministry. The Environment Councilor is “desolate” and emphasizes that this discharge is “more harmful than all the others in the last four years”.

Today it is possible to observe several dead fish in the Este River, as well as a dark color in the water. The SEPNA of the GNR and the PSP, as well as teams from the municipal company AGERE, were in the field during the morning to check pipelines to discover the source of the discharge.

However, an official GNR source informed O MINHO that the location of the discharge was located, evidence was collected and the “presumed entity” polluting was identified, but without mentioning the name of the suspected entity. However, according to what O MINHO found from other sources, it is AGERE and a source from the company confirmed us, however, but explaining that it was rubble that was placed to cover a pipeline that caused the discharge. As such, he will file a complaint with the Public Ministry.

The GNR lifted the report and will communicate the facts to the Public Prosecutor’s Office for “environmental crime”.

Altino Bessa “Desolate”

Altino Bessa says that this discharge is “very harmful”, as opposed to “some and small ones that happen throughout the year and that do not have a very negative impact on the river’s fauna and flora”.

“We were able to understand that the fauna and flora are increasing, that discharges are decreasing and that those that exist are not very aggressive, but unfortunately this is not the case”, highlights the Environment Councilor. Considering that this discharge has “a very negative impact”, he recalls that the last “similar” situation happened “four years ago, curiously also a month before elections”.

At the time, it was an AGERE pipeline that brings Braval leachate for treatment in an WWTP that was clogged with sand bags. “What at the time left a lot of people perplexed, as there was a deliberate human hand”, he recalls.

Stressing that, at the time, it had not yet been possible to determine the cause of this discharge, the political official emphasizes that it has “the same effect” as that of four years ago. “It is a very aggressive discharge for the river and for its fauna and flora”, he stresses

“It’s the most harmful of all the discharges in the last four years”, considers Altino Bessa, adding that, as soon as the Chamber was aware of it, it alerted the PSP – because the first signs happened in urban areas – and AGERE. Meanwhile the GNR’s SEPNA joined the investigation and the two forces cooperated to discover the source of the discharge.
“It leaves me desolate because here there is a significant part of the work to recover the river in these four years that in one day is called into question. I hope that the origin is discovered and those responsible will be found out”, he concludes.

Photoionized Herbig–Haro Objects in the Orion Nebula through Deep High Spectral Resolution Spectroscopy. II. HH 204. The Astrophysical Journal, 2021; 918 (1): 27 DOI: 10.3847/1538-4357/ac0cf5

The Orion Nebula, one of the known and brightest objects in the night sky, is the nearest region of massive star formation to Earth, and it has a complex and extensive gas structure. Some of the newborn stars within it emit jets of gas at high speed which, when they impact their surroudings, produce shock fronts which compress and heat the nebular gas. These impact zones are bow-shaped, and are called Herbig-Haro objects, after their discoverers, the US astonomer George Herbig, and the Mexican astronomer Guillermo Haro.

These objects have been observed previously in many dark nebulae, where the cold gas is neutral, and its main source of energy is the heat generated by the shock. However, the jets of gas in the Orion Nebula are immersed in a large radiation field produced by the most massive stars in the Trapezium of Orion, situated at the centre of the nebula. Due to this radiation the gas within the shock front and also the gas compressed after it has passed through, is warm and ionized, and this allows us to measure precisely the physical conditions and the chemical composition of the jet.

The research carried out by a team of astronomers in Spain, Mexico and the United States, led by José Eduardo Méndez Delgado, a doctoral student at the IAC and the University of La Laguna (ULL), has uncovered the complex relations between the ionic abundances of the gas and its physical conditions in HH204, one of the most prominent Herbig-Haro objects in the Orion Nebula.

“Our work shows that the in the shock front of HH204 the gas abundances of heavy elements such as iron and nickel are increased by up to 350% compared to the values usually found in the Orion Nebula, and this allows us to determine the proportion of other chemical elements more accurately, which contributes to an improved knowledge of the chemical evolution in the solar neighbourhood,” explains José Eduardo Méndez Delgado, the first author of the article.

“As well as the heavy element enrichment in the gas phase, we have observed a heated post-shock zone which comprises a very small fraction of the gas, and which lets us understand the different layers of the structure of the Herbig-Haro object generated by the impact of the shock front,” says César Esteban, and IAC researcher and a co-author of the article.

“The origin of HH204 appears to be associated with one of the most brilliant and star formation rich zones of the Orion Nebula, the regions called Orion South, although there are many interactions of gas which appear to feed it from several directions,” adds William Henney, a researcher at the Institute of Radioastronomy and Astrophysics at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and a co-author of the article.

“Thanks to the images of the Hubble Space Telescope we have shown that HH204 is propagating at an angle of 32º with the plane of the sky, which lets us observe the compression of the gas transversely as we approach the shock front,” points out Karla Arellano Córdova, a researcher at the University of Texas at Austin, and a co-author of the article.

“We have seen that the impact of these objects can be important when determining the local physical conditions in ionized nebulae. In fact, if we don’t take these effects into account we can make incorrect determinations of the chemical composition of the ionized nebulae, which are fundamental techniques for understanding the chemical evolution of the Universe,” sums up Jorge García Rojas, an IAC researcher and a co-author of the article.

Like most scientific studies, the best ones start with a trial period, an experimental phase, where patterns emerge and data and feedback is collected.

That’s how NASA is approaching its next great experiment, determining the future of work at the agency.

The Biden administration gave agencies until mid-July to finalize workplace reentry plans and determine how it’ll incorporate the lessons they’ve learned about telework and remote work during the pandemic into their workforce plans.

“More recently we’ve declared that we’re going to treat, really almost starting now and until some point probably in the middle of next year, as kind of an experimental phase,” Jane Datta, NASA’s chief human capital officer, said in an interview with Federal News Network.

For NASA, that means approaching each employee’s work arrangement with a “clean slate,” drawing on their experiences from the last 18 months, their job requirements and home and family situations.

“We think that there are lots and lots of reasons why it’s great to be able to — where it makes sense — support employees to be able to decide where they want to live that gives them the support structures that they need or allows them to get a better cost of living so that they can stay with NASA and it makes sense for them financially, and every other reason under the sun,” Datta said. “On the other hand, we also need to pay attention to the work requirements themselves. In all of this supervisors have the ability to say yes or no. But the idea is that we are not anchoring decisions about where and how and when an employee works based solely on supervisors’ individual preference.”

Employees are discussing their options — whether that’s teleworking from their home full-time, part-time or an ad-hoc basis, or working from a NASA facility with regularity — with their supervisors now.

From there, NASA will see what work patterns emerge and what arrangements are productive ones,  which will then inform eventual decisions on office space, IT and other investments, Datta said.

“[We’re] not pre-supposing that but instead giving ourselves an opportunity to find out what works and what doesn’t work,” she said. “That way we can figure out in the middle of next year — if we get there and it looks like that’s a good point at which to start looking at investment and divestment decisions — what we need in the way of fixed infrastructure and what we need in the way of IT.”

It’s a big shift for NASA, especially in accepting the concept of remote work, where employees can live far away from their duty station and work virtually without the expectation that they visit their offices regularly.

That approach, Datta said, will broaden NASA’s recruiting base and help it better compete for top scientific talent.

“We have been hiring all through the pandemic. I don’t think that we’ve really pivoted our thinking to hire from anywhere, but that’s where we’re going,” she said. “We’ve certainly engaged thousands of interns who have not come on site, and their internships have really been from wherever they were, not near any of our centers. We also have hired employees who may intend to relocate but haven’t yet.”

Some existing NASA employees have temporarily or permanently relocated during the pandemic, and the agency has been working through those arrangements on a case-by-case basis. Datta said she anticipates some NASA employees may gradually relocate, but the shift will be slower. Far more employees will likely stay and telework within commuting distance of their offices, she said.

A big mentality shift for supervisors

Supervisors have the power to approve or deny employee work arrangements, but as both NASA and the Office of Personnel Management have encouraged, they’re supposed to put aside their individual preferences.

“We have a wonderful workforce. Many of them have a lot of service at NASA,” Datta said. “They’re very committed to NASA and the values and practices that we’ve always had. That is actually a very good thing. It does, however, make a shift, a cultural shift, a little bit more challenging than it would be for an organization where those norms are not so settled.”

To socialize those changes with supervisors, NASA has been releasing guidance and is making HR consultants available to managers. The agency’s top leaders have also been helpful in communicating the goals of the new policy changes to managers and the broader workforce, Datta said.

“If an employee feels that they’re not being understood, then there’s an appeals process which just leverages the kinds of appeals processes we have for everything else,” she said. “We hope that will both help for cases where that’s necessary and also that we won’t need to go there, that we’ll actually get good communication and dialogue.

Not every NASA engineer or human capital specialist, as an example, may have the same work setup, another outcome of the agency’s approach that might take some getting used to.

“I have folks in my organization whose homes do not lend themselves to being good workplaces. They’ve found a way to cope over the last year-and-a-half, but really that is not satisfactory for the long-run,” Datta said. “Even if I’m encouraging a lean-forward approach, which means a highly virtual approach, that doesn’t mean that everybody on my staff is going to be all virtual all the time. It’s going to be a combination of what they need and what we need and working it out, as long as everyone has the same opportunity for those choices and dialogues.”

A chance to ‘democratize’ training and professional development

The virtual environment is also giving NASA employees more access to training, conferences and other events that previously would have consumed more travel, money and time.

It’s opened up new avenues for longer-term professional development and rotational opportunities for NASA employees as well, Datta said.

“You can do many more of those much more easily with virtual assignments,” she said. “It pushes open the doors of opportunity to our workforce to consider projects, rotations, details [and] other kinds of experiential learning opportunities that might not ever have been possible or thought of or considered before.”

Since about 94% of the workforce stays at the agency within each given year, NASA places a premium on finding details and other developmental assignments for employees, Datta said. Some opportunities allow employees to move up the career ladder; others give them a chance to learn about another part of the agency or improve their leadership skills.

The agency has an internal talent marketplace tool, where employees can find detail assignments, rotations and opportunities to work on other projects.

“What we’ve noticed is that in this time of the pandemic where most of us are virtual, that the utilization of that has really increased significantly, and we’ve seen a lot more movement of people, [with] different types of assignments that are hosted in different locations,” Datta said of NASA’s talent marketplace tool. “It’s really contributing to a positive employee-development process.”

Figma proposes a different version of the world of action figures, recreating some of the most famous works of art in figure form to display in your display case.

No, you are not on the wrong website. No, in Hobby Consolas we are not going to get involved with pictorial art critics. The world of action figures is a market that continues to explore possibilities of all kinds, and it could have found a vein in some of the most famous works of art in history.

In the market we can find detailed action figures with an amazing level of realism, such as those launched by Hot Toys or Iron Studios, for example.

We also have simpler and cheaper action figures, like some from Hasbro or the ever-recurring and popular Funko Pop !.

If you usually watch series when you travel or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.

The general theme of these figures is, almost always, pop culture: movies, series, comics, anime … However, sometimes there are rare exceptions that, in addition to being original, are very bizarre. Today we have one of those curious cases.

The brand FIGMA has set out to explore the world of action figures based on famous works of art.

Three of these figures can be found on the IGN Store and recreate, in articulated figure form, iconic works of art such as The Scream, from Edvard Munch, The vitruvian man, from Leonardo da Vinci O The David, from Miguel Angel.

By being articulated, the figures can adopt their iconic pose, but they can also be displayed in positions that never crossed the minds of the artists. You can put The Scream making the heart with his hands, David ready to attack or The Vitruvian Man practicing Greco-Roman wrestling. The possibilities are limitless!

The price of this second run that is currently available to reserve varies between $ 88.99 and $ 100.99, to which must be added the shipping / customs costs and a dose of patience for your shipments in 2022.
