I accepted Yousuf’s challenge and looked at Wasim bhai’s shoe the next day and tried to find out what size he wears.Salaam Cricket 2018: When Akram once cracked a deal with Muralitharan”After practice Wasim bhai came back tired and I served him water.

The Manual’s Dos and Don’ts for Gym Grooming

first_img Editors’ Recommendations Escape the City and the Roads with the 2020 Subaru Outback Getting prepped for the day at the gym is commonplace for many men. But acing the post workout gym grooming game can be difficult if you don’t keep the right brands in your gym bag or know how to TCB (Take Care of Business) in a quick and productive manner. We’ve partnered with Gillette to provide you with some tips to get from the weight room to the conference room while looking like a champ.Don’t:Use generic products provided by the gym. Unless you go to a seriously swanky gym with high end products. Most of the gyms we know stock cheaper products high in alcohol that will do a world of damage to your face and dry out your skin. Moisturize at the office. This sounds weird but think about it- you work out, take a hot shower and then speed off to work. Most likely you are still sweating when you get to your desk. So whip out your moisturizer (discreetly!) an hour after work and apply as needed. It will give you a little pick me up, too. How to Shave With a Straight Razor Introducing a New Look for The Manual Bring your gear in a shopping bag. Dude, you are old enough to own a proper gym bag. Pack a quality dopp kit. You are better than Barbasol.Dopp kit requirements include:Dopp Kit- Chester WallaceRazor- Gillette Shave ClubDeodorant-Kent & BondShampoo-Baxter of CaliforniaFace Scrub- BrickellBody Wash- Plant Moisturizer-Clean Break Oil Free MoisturizerShave oil-Prospector Co.Sunscreen- CoolaCologne- Abbott Shaving at the gymGuys can blow through a quick shave and it shows. Cheap razors and shave products can do some serious damage to your face from nicks and cuts to dry skin.Always bring your own razors. Gillette’s Shave Club offers quality razors delivered to your home on a monthly basis so you are never out of stock. As soon as we receive ours, we put two immediately into our gym kit. Use shave oil. Unlike creams which can be both big and bad for your face (plus the generic ones have too much alcohol), shave oils come in small portions and with just a couple of squirts, can cover the face, give a great, smooth shave and leave you hydrated. Take selfies in the locker room! We see these creep up on Instagram, we know who you are. Carry a bag that is stylish yet laid back (no logo bags up in your stanky gym locker). We are fans on bags from Hudson Sutler. Bring a water bottle, because we know you speed through your grooming routine only to wait in line at Starbucks. Or even bring a thermos with your libation of choice, from home brewed coffee to good ole H2O.Added bonus: When you sign up with the Gillette Shave Club, refer your friends here and get some awesome rewards! Sip On the Original Stormtrooper Beer While You Wait for the Next Star Wars Movie Don’t rush! Bulldozing through your workout, shower, shave and getting dressed defeats the purpose of giving yourself this magic alone time. Think of your grooming time as yoga for your face.

Gov’t Protecting Consumers from Substandard Goods

first_img Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, says Jamaica remains vigilant in protecting consumers from the influx of substandard goods in the marketplace.   “This means, therefore, that standards must be embedded in new process areas to meet expectations of consumers, industries and trading partners. This will certainly have implications for the way we operate in the future,” he pointed out. Mr. Shaw said that the Government is committed to the strengthening of Jamaica’s national quality infrastructure, citing among other things, the revision of the National Quality Policy in 2017. Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, says Jamaica remains vigilant in protecting consumers from the influx of substandard goods in the marketplace.He noted that while it is estimated that 80 per cent  of global trade is affected by standards and technical regulations,  Jamaica still has to be alert in order to ensure that “ our local market is not being abused by the importation of illicit goods” that fall way below international standards.“In fact, about a week ago, our local police authorities seized a considerable amount of goods from stores in the Corporate Area that were in fact illegal imports that were below standard and  were forged in terms of the authenticity of the brand names and so on,” the Minister pointed out.“We have to take it seriously,” he added.The Minister was giving the keynote address at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Pan American Standards Commission (COPANT) General Assembly at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa, St. James, on April 16.Mr. Shaw said that the Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ) has been facilitating the development and adoption of standards to meet market needs and requirements in order to effectively compete and trade globally.He noted that from April 2017 to March 2018, the BSJ facilitated the publication of 125 standards that address the needs of industry, regulators, consumers and other stakeholder groups.He informed that 54 per cent of the published standards were adopted from regional and international standards, and will enable businesses to become more competitive, facilitating trade and export.“We must therefore ensure that we continue to build a culture of quality, which sees standards becoming a part of our everyday life and, over time, we will readily implement regional and international standards in our public and private sectors,” he added.Mr. Shaw said that the Government is committed to the strengthening of Jamaica’s national quality infrastructure, citing among other things, the revision of the National Quality Policy in 2017.He noted that the policy, which was first issued in 2001, affirms the Government’s commitment to strengthening the national framework for the development of a sustainable standards-led, market-driven economy supported by a culture of quality in order to achieve global competitiveness and consumer protection.“Consumers are demanding better quality goods and services. Changes in consumer behaviour, the availability of new technologies and shifts in buying power are reshaping the industry’s supply chain. We must ensure that quality standards are used to meet consumer demand and promote customer satisfaction,” the Minister said.He noted further that as industry changes, standards must also evolve to meet global demands.“This means, therefore, that standards must be embedded in new process areas to meet expectations of consumers, industries and trading partners. This will certainly have implications for the way we operate in the future,” he pointed out. Story Highlightslast_img read more

French doctors say to end life support in righttodie case

first_imgLille: French doctors are set to begin turning off life support on Tuesday for quadriplegic road accident victim Vincent Lambert in what could be the final act in a hugely controversial right-to-die case that has drawn in Pope Francis. The main doctor treating Lambert, Vincent Sanchez, informed his family by email that he intended to start removing life support in line with a French court ruling last Friday, according to the message which was shared with AFP. Also Read – Turkey preparations for Syria offensive ‘completed’The doctor urged family members to ensure that “support to Mr Vincent Lambert is as peaceful, intimate and personal as possible”. Lambert, 42, has been in a vegetative state since a 2008 traffic accident, with the question of whether to continue keeping him alive artificially bitterly dividing his family and the nation. After years of legal battles that pitted Lambert’s mother against his wife, doctors began removing life support in May before they were forced to reinstate his feeding tubes by a last-minute legal appeal. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi JinpingBut France’s top appeals court, the Cour de Cassation, ruled on Friday that life support could be turned off in what was hailed as a definitive legal judgement by a lawyer representing Lambert’s wife Rachel. The case has rekindled a charged debate over France’s right-to-die laws, which allow so-called “passive” euthanasia for severely ill or injured patients who are being kept alive with no chance of recovery. Pope Francis intervened in May when he tweeted to say that it was necessary to “always safeguard life, God’s gift, from its beginning until its natural end”.last_img read more

Capital to witness a magnificent Kathak solo

first_imgSeventeen-year-old, Dhriti Swarup, shishya of the esteemed guru, Padmashri Dr Shovana Narayan, will be performing a solo Kathak recital at Triveni Auditorium, New Delhi, on July 28. The event will be presided over by Dr Shovana Narayan.Dhriti started her training in Kathak as a seven year old little girl, under Guru Tirath Ajmani, who is Shovanaji’s Guru-Bhai. Under the aegis of ASAVARI, established by Shovanaji in 1979, Dhriti has been trained to be a highly proficient dancer replete with technical and abhinaya skills and an intense grounding in the theory of Kathak. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainA staunch believer in guru-shishya parampara, Shovana has inculcated in Dhriti her own sensitivities of righteous practice and trust. Under her expert guidance and after 10 years of intense riyaaz, she performed her ‘Manch Pravesh’ last year at the India International Centre, New Delhi. Currently a student waiting to start her liberal arts graduation course at Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York, USA, Dhriti finds herself involved in photography, social service, and Indian classical vocal music. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardAs a devotee of dance, Dhriti will dedicate the opening performance of the event to the lord. She will start with ‘Rudrashtakam’, a composition by Sant Tulsidas. This is an invocation to lord Shiva – the supreme being who creates, protects and transforms the universe by destroying negativity, evil, ignorance and death. The Rudrashtakam will be followed by a gat nikas, depicting the story of Sati. Daksha, Sati’s father, organises a yagna, inviting all the gods, goddesses and princes, excluding his daughter and her husband, but Sati insists on going to the yagna. On seeing her, Daksha gets angry and Sati immolates her mortal body in scorching flames. Shiva, angered and grief-stricken, then performs the fearsome tandava dance with Sati’s charred body on his shoulders. During this dance, her body comes apart and the pieces fall on earth. Following this, Dhriti will perform teen taal, consisting of sixteen matras. The dance is said to be the first stepping stone for any dancer, singer, or musician. This piece will be a combination of thaat, pirmilu, upaj and footwork in which she will strive to exhibit her command over the nuances which define a true Kathak exponent. The next abhinaya will be thumri malika consisting of two pieces. The first is ‘Kanha bin’ – lyrics by Dr Shovana Narayan and Pandit Jwala Prasad. The second ‘Chhado langar’, portrays the ecstasy of Radha as the faint strains of Krishna’s flute fall on her ears. This will then be followed by a rendition of dhamaar – a taal consisting of 14 matras. The last piece of the performance will be a soulful mix of an Urdu couplet, a Bhajan by Surdas, poems by Lalita Devi, Harivanshrai Bachchan and Malik Mohammed Jayasi. Conceptualised by Dr Shovana Narayan and guru Lalita Narayan and choreographed by Dr Shovana Narayan, ‘Chaand’, set to Pandit Jwala Prasad’s dulcet music, portrays the moon in all its dynamic elements: as an object of a child’s fascination, as a symbol of romance, of desire, and as an integral part in all earthly phenomena.last_img read more

How a call from President Trumps soninlaw started a scramble on NAFTA

first_imgWASHINGTON – A phone call from U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law set off a frantic scramble ending in sighs of relief across three national capitals that the North American Free Trade Agreement would survive.Jared Kushner called around supper time.It happened on an intrigue-filled day last month after different news reports said Trump was seriously thinking of invoking Article 2205 of NAFTA, which would be the first step in cancelling the quarter-century-old deal.There are contrasting accounts of what really happened April 26.One version suggests Trump was simply bluffing about blowing up NAFTA. Another describes it as a White House power-struggle that played out in public. For his part, Trump insists he really came close to withdrawing from the deal.What dissuaded him, Trump says, were evening phone calls from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Enrique Pena Nieto.”Two people that I like very much, the president of Mexico, prime minister of Canada, they called up, they said, can we negotiate? I said, yes, we can renegotiate,” Trump told a rally in Pennsylvania several days later.”So we’ll start a renegotiation.”He didn’t delve into the details. But here’s what happened.Washington was abuzz over those reports hinting at the possible demise of NAFTA. Some Trump administration members urged him not to proceed, warning of the economic bedlam such a move would cause. At the Canadian embassy in Washington, some were heartened by the intensity of the reaction.The business community and lawmakers had, for the most part, quietly abided Trump’s trade-skeptical campaign talk for over a year but were suddenly springing to action, flooding contacts with phone calls and pleas not to touch NAFTA.Then came the call from Kushner.A pair of sources described the chain of events. At about 6 p.m., the senior White House aide contacted a counterpart in Ottawa. The president’s son-in-law and adviser called PMO chief of staff Katie Telford, and said: Trump has a free moment, right now, to speak about NAFTA.He suggested Trudeau might want to call the White House.Telford veered to a stop. She happened to be in a carpool, commuting with her colleague Gerald Butts. The senior officials pulled over to the side of the road in Tunney’s Pasture, an industrial-park-like federal area in west-end Ottawa.They got in touch with Trudeau, and the prime minister contacted Trump. The prime minister stressed the economic disruption that would be caused in people’s lives, should the deal be suddenly jettisoned. Trump also spoke to Pena Nieto and, a few hours later, the White House issued a statement: NAFTA was saved, for now, and would be renegotiated — not terminated.The White House says the game of telephone actually began earlier in the day, on the Canadian side. An official there told the Associated Press on Monday that the initial call was placed by Trudeau aides, who were concerned about the media reports.Kushner said the leaders should speak, said he would set up a time, and called back to confirm it, according to that account.It’s still a little murky, what Trump really intended that day.”I’m not sure. I think they were genuinely close to pulling out,” one Canadian said.”(But) I think the story is a little messier than that.”The different parties involved, in both countries, might be spinning the details to their benefit, he said. That’s the opinion of some NAFTA experts — who believe the whole thing was theatre, orchestrated by the White House.”A negotiating ploy,” said Gary Hufbauer of the Peterson Institute in Washington. ”True to Trump’s style.”One Mexican official said an American colleague even admitted as much.Foreign minister Luis Videgaray told media that an American colleague told him who the intended target was — the U.S. Congress. Congress has been dragging its heels in starting the NAFTA negotiation process and, according to the Mexican minister, some described the sudden activity as a pressure-tactic intended to light a fire under Capitol Hill.The U.S.’s NAFTA point man offers a more blase explanation.The whole thing was neither a negotiating ploy, nor a near-death experience for NAFTA, but something else entirely, says Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. It was a non-story that got way out of control, he says.He appears to be blaming whoever leaked news to the press about Trump considering an executive order. Ross suggests somebody prematurely pushed out a half-baked, never-decided draft policy, and that stirred up unnecessary excitement.”What people don’t understand is the president encourages lively discussion. In the course of those discussions all kinds of alternatives come up,” Ross told CNBC.”I think what’s unfortunate is that someone leaked one of the many potential papers that was floating around, and created a whole skirmish over something that had not been decided upon by the president.”This White House is notorious for its power struggles.One such fault line involves divisions over trade. Some advisers are more trade-skeptical, such as Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon, who were reportedly two forces behind the now-scrapped executive order.Other senior staff are believed to be pro-NAFTA — including Gary Cohn and, yes, the president’s son-in-law.last_img read more

Meetings seek to boost UN cooperation with West Africans

Mr. Annan has recommended ways of eliminating cross-border problems in West Africa by ending the spread of small arms, the recruitment of child soldiers, the employment of mercenary soldiers and the erection of roadblocks.”It is high time to deal with these scourges that have afflicted our region for many years,” the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for West Africa, Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah said in announcing the 30 April meeting in the Senegalese capital, Dakar.”With the Security Council having now formally endorsed the practical and concrete recommendations made by the Secretary-General, all relevant actors – whether in the international community, ECOWAS, national governments and civil society organizations – have to work on credible action plans to implement those recommendations,” he said.”This is what we will be attempting to do next Friday,” he added.A Security Council Presidential Statement issued on 25 March said the Council would take a regional approach to West Africa as part of a wider strategy of conflict prevention, crisis management and post-conflict stabilization there.On 29 April representatives of UN peacekeeping operations in Côte d’Ivoire, Liberia and Sierra Leone will meet to strengthen mission cooperation, including joint patrolling and monitoring and the possibility of “hot pursuit” cross-border operations, the UN Office for West Africa (UNOWA) said. read more

Apple Tells The NHSTA Theyre Excited About SelfDriving Cars

first_imgStay on target Apple has finally shed some light on their self-driving car plans. Not a particularly bright light, mind you, but that wouldn’t have been very Apple-y, would it?In a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), director of product integrity Steve Kenner said that the company is “excited” about self-driving cars. That’s something that was already pretty clear to anyone who’s been following Apple Car/Project Titan developments. Still, it’s nice to finally see an official statement.Apple’s letter fell well short of confirming anything other than possibilities, really. Kenner’s full comment was that “Apple is investing heavily in the study of machine learning and automation, and is excited about the potential of automated systems in many areas, including transportation.”So, yes, Apple is still open to doing something driverless car-related. Are they building their own driverless car? Probably not, despite the lengthy string of rumors pointing to the contrary.Their comments to the NHTSA centered around data sharing related to accidents, saying that “companies should share de-identified scenario and dynamics data from crashes and near-misses” so that a “comprehensive dataset” can be assembled to benefit the entire industry. Not just the companies actually building driverless cars, but also the companies that are supplying things like sensors and software.It’s looking increasingly that the second group is where Apple sees themselves. They’re not a car company, after all, but they’ve got plenty of experience with technology related to driverless cars like artificial intelligence, mapping, and virtual assistants.Apple is in a strong position to provide critical software to automakers, and they’ve already got their foot in the door thanks to numerous integration deals that have landed CarPlay and Siri in infotainment systems.

The awards range from $450,000 for the city of Grayling to build a system that will capture and convert heat from its diesel plant to $3 million dollars for Alaska Village Electric Co-op, or AVEC, to develop a grid that will connect towns to a planned wind farm in the Yukon delta.All the projects focus on the use of alternative energy sources or increasing efficiency—an effort to reduce dependence on diesel.At a press conference at the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium in Anchorage today, AVEC president Meera Koehler said the federal dollars make the difference in a state where the economies of scale for utility projects are so small.“It’s not as if it’s a gimme or a handout,” she said. “It really is critical to make these projects actually viable.”Patrick Boonstra works for Intelligent Energy Systems, which is working with the city of Pilot Point on the Alaska Peninsula to install a wind turbine and electric stoves with grant funding. He said funding renewable projects in rural areas is about more than just making energy cheaper.“It’s not just the new technology that’s very exciting, it’s involvement of the community, building the project, maintaining the project and all the training that goes into the people development and getting to a point where maybe Alaska exports its talent in microgrids, instead of just oil,” Boonstra said.Grant recipients still have work to do: In order to get their funding, applicants will still need to complete environmental reviews for their projects.Here’s the full list of grant recipients with details on their projects, as described by the USDA in its press release today:Alaska Power & Telephone Company:  $3 million to build a 1.8 megawatt twin-turbine wind project, and a 10-mile transmission line to connect the villages of Tok, Tetlin, Dot Lake and Tanacross. Currently, these communities are 100 percent diesel dependent. Asa’carsarmiut Tribe:  $1,308,104 to rehabilitate and weatherize the Asa’carsarmiut Tribe’s office and connect it to a biomass fuel boiler. New Koliganek Village Council:  $2,208,903 to replace the antiquated and undersized diesel electric generation power plant in the village of Koliganek with three John Deere engines, add modest wind generation and fund heat recovery improvements to enhance heating for the community center and school.last_img read more

Abigail Pande on getting trolled for nude yoga Kareena was spared for

first_imgAbigail PandeInstagramTelevision actress Abigail Pande, who is a yoga enthusiast, recently took social media by storm when she shared a topless picture of practising yoga. Promoting nude yoga, Abigail performed back namaskar, while showing off her back to the camera.While she received immense support from her fans, haters trolled her for going topless. Commenting on the mixed reactions she received, Abigail, currently shooting for episodic horror series, Lal Ishq, said that while Kareena Kapoor Khan was  spared for going backless in Kurbaan, people made a fuss about her picture.”While no one made a fuss about Kareena Kapoor’s backless Kurbaan scene, I was called names for doing the same, as I was practising yoga. Having said this, I did get good support for my above views as well,” she said.As part of her yoga practises, Abigail follows a well-known nude yoga practitioner (nude_yogagirl on Instagram), who often gets trolled for her bare pictures. Defending her form of yoga practice, the actress said, “Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying walk naked. My point was that rather than appreciating her and her art, you just look at it from only one angle.””Secondly, I don’t get the term vulgar which she was called. This itself is so loaded and wrong. Do we call nude works in Ajanta and Ellora as vulgar? Beauty is never vulgar when presented aesthetically. She really works hard to make her work look classy and not cheap. Her agenda is never arousal but to show yoga in its most natural form.”However, Abigail made it clear that she is just supporting the nude yoga practitioner. “I am just supporting the @nude_yogagirl. Personally, I’d rather do Hot yoga, Ashtanga yoga, and Hath yoga.”Further, talking about how yoga is not just a means of exercise to lose weight but has helped her deal with medical problems, Abigail said: “I have been following this traditional Indian form of exercise for the past four years. I first started taking it as a kind of workout as a means to lose weight and get a better-toned body. But later, I realized that it has started helping me deal with medical problems i.e lower back weakness and PCOD as well. Also, I was a very distracted person, with my mind running around with 50 things at the same time. Yoga has kind of calmed me down and lets me stay in the moment.”last_img read more

How does complex behavior spontaneously emerge in the brain

(2013, August 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-08-complex-behavior-spontaneously-emerge-brain.html A spatial representation of the background avalanche activity in a circular culture with a 2.5-mm radius and density of 300 neurons per mm. Only the top 1% of the most active connections is shown. Different colors correspond to different neuron communities, according to a community detection algorithm. Credit: Javier G. Orlandi, et al. ©2013 Macmillan Publishers Limited In a new study published in Nature Physics, a team of researchers from Spain has shown that emergence in neuronal networks can be explained as a noise-driven phenomenon that is controlled by the interplay between network topology and intrinsic neuronal dynamics. In this scenario, a randomly fired pulse propagates through the network and is amplified by noise focusing, which the researchers describe as an implosive concentration of spontaneous activity. “From the experimental point of view, we show that in neuronal cultures, the emergence early in the development of collective spontaneous activity is dominated by the presence of activity waves that initiate in specific regions of the culture, in a similar way as it happens in vivo,” lead author Javier G. Orlandi at the University of Barcelona told Phys.org. “And with the help of simulations, we also show that you don’t need any special mechanism to explain this behavior, just the right combination of network structure and dynamics. These waves emerge naturally from the noise focusing effect, in which individual firings propagate and concentrate in specific regions to later generate these activity waves.”The researchers arrived at this explanation by combining high-resolution calcium imaging experiments of rat cortical neurons with simulations. The experiments revealed that bursts of neuronal pulses are controlled by waves that originate at small areas called nucleation sites. Although previous research has hinted at the existence of such waves, this study is the first that provides sufficiently high resolution to measure the wave velocity for the first time. The random nature of the wave initiation from spontaneous neuronal firing also supports the idea that it is a noise-driven phenomenon, in which the waves are later amplified to become global bursts.The view of emergence in neural networks as a noise-driven phenomenon differs from the common view in which the bursts of neuronal pulses are controlled by specific leader neurons assisted by the network architecture. In the noise-driven explanation, the nucleation sites do not actively initiate the firing process, but collect and amplify the firing activity that originated elsewhere.As the researchers explain, understanding the full implications of noise focusing in the brain remains a question for future research.”The mechanism of noise focusing emerges naturally in any system with interconnected integrate-and-fire units (like neurons), so its effect should also be present in the brain,” Orlandi said. “If this effect is important in the brain, or by contrast, if the brain has other mechanisms to counter its effect, is still an open question. It could be that noise focusing is responsible for the generation of waves of activity during development, like in the retina, and that it helps the maturation of specific neuronal pathways.”In the future, the researchers plan to further investigate neuronal activity through more in-depth investigations.”We want to see what happens in more complex neuronal systems, like slices or electrode recordings from anaesthetized animals, and see if we find the same effect in there,” Orlandi said. “We know that activity waves are present in these systems, but we still need to see how these waves form exactly, if it is also due to noise focusing or due to something else. It would also be extremely interesting to check what role noise focusing plays in social networks, for example in rumor spreading.”In this analogy, the points of a rumor’s origins can be compared to the nucleation sites where waves originate, and the spreading of a rumor to the brain’s collective neuronal firing.

DOI: 10.1038/NPHYS2686 Journal information: Nature Physics Coherence activity in neuronal cultures from noise focusingcenter_img Explore further (Phys.org) —The idea of emergence, in which complex behavior spontaneously emerges out of simple interactions, exists in a wide variety of areas, such as economics, the Internet, and urban development. But perhaps the ultimate example of emergence is in the brain, where thousands of randomly firing neurons spontaneously reach a coherent state of collective, periodic firing that underlies all brain functions. Despite significant progress, the mechanisms responsible for the origin and maintenance of spontaneous neuronal activity are still poorly understood. © 2013 Phys.org. All rights reserved.

Neither had traveled out of the country.“They are being monitored, but both are out of danger,” Trejos said.Currently 11 other patients have chikungunya symptoms. Their blood samples will be sent on Monday to the National Center for Virology at the Costa Rican Institute of Research and Education in Nutrition and Health.The 13 possible cases were detected in the past 30 days. Two are people who recently traveled to Haiti and the Dominican Republic, two countries with the highest number of infected patients in the Americas.Four others are considered a high probability of having contracted the virus because they traveled to countries with an active spread of chikungunya, Trejos said.Earlier this month, Health Ministry officials confirmed the first case of the virus related to Costa Rica after French health officials said a tourist from that country who spent 10 days here showed symptoms following her return home.The woman traveled with her mother and visited San José, Tortuguero, La Fortuna, Monteverde and Quepos.Health Minister María Elena López Núñez called on the population to help stop an outbreak by cleaning up trash and other items that collect stagnant water.The virus is transmitted by Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, and it shares many of the same symptoms as dengue: high fever, headaches, muscle and joint pain, nausea and rashes. But symptoms are more aggressive than dengue and can persist for up to 10 months.Chikungunya strikes only once – patients become immune from future infection – but it can leave people with rheumatoid arthritis as a consequence.

Clarke, bought a telescope.“He got this Questar and he attached one of his cameras to it,” remembers Katharina Kubrick, the filmmaker’s stepdaughter. “On a night where there was a lunar eclipse, he dragged us all out onto the balcony and we were able to see the moon like a big rubber ball. I don’t think I’ve seen it as clearly since. He loved that thing. He looked at it all the time.”Space exploration was then an exciting possibility, but one far from realization. That July, the NASA’s Ranger 7 sent back high-resolution photographs from the moon’s surface. Kubrick and Clarke, convinced the moon was only the start, began to toil on a script together. It would be five years before astronauts landed on the moon, on July 20, 1969. Kubrick took flight sooner. “2001: A Space Odyssey” opened in theatres April 3, 1968.The space race was always going to be won by filmmakers and science-fiction writers. Jules Verne penned “From the Earth to the Moon” in 1865, prophesying three U.S. astronauts rocketing from Florida to the moon. George Melies’ 1902 silent classic “A Trip to the Moon” had a rocket ship landing in the eye of the man in the moon. “Destination Moon,” based on Robert Heinlein’s tale, got there in 1950, and won an Oscar for special effects. Three years before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the lunar surface, “Star Trek” began airing.It’s no wonder that the moon landing seemed like the stuff of movies. Some conspiracy theorists claimed it was one: another Kubrick production. But the truth of the landing was intertwined with cinema.Audio recordings from Mission Control during Apollo 11 capture flight controllers talking about “2001.” The day of the landing, Heinlein and Clarke were on air with Walter Cronkite . Heinlein called it “New Year’s Day of the Year One.”The landing was a giant leap not just for mankind but for filmmaking. The astronauts on board Apollo 11 carried multiple film cameras with them , including two 16mm cameras and several 70mm Hasselblad 500s. Some cameras were affixed to the lunar module and the astronauts’ suits, others they carried on the journey. Their training was rudimentary, but they were filmmakers. Armstrong, Aldrin and Michael Collins were all later made honorary members of the American Society of Cinematographers.Those images, broadcast live on television, were crucial proof for the mission. Filmmaker Todd Michael Douglas, whose archival-based “Apollo 11” has been one of the year’s most acclaimed and popular documentaries, believes they constitute some of the most important images in cinema history.“How could you argue with Buzz Aldrin’s landing shot with a 16mm camera using variable frame rate and shutter exposures out the lunar module window?” marvels Douglas. “I mean, come up with a better shot in cinema history than the landing on the moon. And likewise, Michael Collins in the command module seeing the lunar module come off the surface of the moon. They’re incredible shots on their own and they’re also technically astute.”The possibility of travelling to the moon had long invigorated the dreams of storytellers. But the realization of that vision, and the images it produced, opened up entirely new horizons. The moon landing inspired films that greatly expanded the realm of science fiction and began an ongoing dance between the space program and the movies: two sunny industries driven by technological discovery and starry-eyed daydreams.Many of the foremost filmmakers then coming of age turned to space. George Lucas debuted “Star Wars” in 1977, the same year Steven Spielberg released “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” Ridley Scott’s “Alien,” suggesting a less harmonious universe, came out two years later.Science fiction runs on its own parallel timeline. It resides beyond contemporary reality while at the same time being informed by it. It’s built on future dreams past. Lucas was inspired by the 1936 serial “Flash Gordon.” Spielberg, who later made Kubrick’s “A.I.,” referred to “2001,” not the moon landing, as the genre’s “big bang.”But, unmistakably, a new frontier opened when Apollo 11 landed. Philip Kaufman purposefully began his 1983 Oscar-winning epic “The Right Stuff,” based on Tom Wolfe’s book about the daring test pilots of the space program’s early days, with Chuck Yeager (Sam Shepherd) on a horseback.“‘The Right Stuff’ is right from the beginning a continuation of the Western,” Kaufman says. “The hero of ‘The Right Stuff’ is a spirit. It’s called the Right Stuff and it’s something that’s ineffable. It’s the ultimate modesty in a way. It’s in the great laconic characters of the Western. You don’t brag. You do your task in the best way possible. And maybe, as in ‘The Searchers’ or ‘Shane,’ you walk away at the end.”The extraordinary height of achievement of the moon landing has ever since been a measuring stick for America. The partisan reception to last year’s First Man,” with Ryan Gosling as Armstrong, was its own reflection of the country’s present. Kaufman, 82, imagines an ongoing search for “the right stuff.”“How do we refresh that sense of adventure?” he wonders, citing the touristy lines on Mt. Everest. “How do we memorialize the landing on the moon not just with parades and self-congratulation but a sense of reverence for the greatness of the people who did it?”Ever since the moon landing made fantasy real, a strain of science-fiction has ridden scientific accuracy for big-screen spectacle. Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” (2015) and Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” (2014) took physics-based approaches to tell reasonably plausible tales of space travel, with scientists as consultants. NASA helped extensively on Ron Howard’s Oscar-winning “Apollo 13” (1995). Weightless scenes were filmed 25 seconds at a time on NASA’s KC-135 plane, in momentary zero gravity.Margaret Weitekamp, curator of space and science-fiction history at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, sees a reciprocal relationship between filmmakers and scientists, with ideas flowing between the two — often to the benefit of NASA.“When you see films in the post-Apollo era that really capture the spirit and triumph and the glory of human space flight, like ‘The Right Stuff’ and ‘Apollo 13,’ you see a direct increase in approval ratings for NASA and human space flight,” Weitekamp said. “After ‘The Martian,’ NASA had one of the largest recruiting application pools that they’ve ever had for the astronaut program.”Other filmmakers saw something different, and lonelier on the moon and the potentially lifeless reaches of space. Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, who found “2001” too sterile, sought to make a more human space drama in “Solaris” (1972). The space station was shabbier, the emotions more earthbound. The French filmmaker Claire Denis, in this year’s “High Life” with Robert Pattinson, similarly went to space only to wrestle with many of things she always has: sex, violence, parenthood.“A lot of science fiction films are about conquest,” Denis says. “In that void, that huge universe, there’s not many things to fight, unless you do ‘Star Wars’ and there’s an alien living there.”As has been often said, we went to the moon and ended up seeing the Earth more clearly. For Kubrick, glued to the Apollo 11 broadcast 50 years ago, that was literally true.“I remember very clearly when we first saw a picture of our Earth, Stanley was immediately disappointed and depressed that he hadn’t gotten the model of the Earth in ‘2001’ the right colour,” Katharina recalls. “In the film, it’s very pale blue and misty and cloudy. But we hadn’t really seen it yet. We didn’t know how clearly we’d be able to see it. He just said, ‘Oh gee, I should have made it bluer.’”___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAP___Follow AP’s full coverage of the Apollo 11 anniversary at:https://apnews.com/Apollo11moonlanding___This story corrects the release of the ‘The Martian’ to 2015, not 2005.Jake Coyle, The Associated Presslast_img read more
