The Rick Kelly ProjectWriter-Director: Ron Mann (Altman, Grass, Comic Book Confidential)Production: Sphinx ProductionsOnce the centre of New York’s bohemian scene, Greenwich Village is now home to luxe restaurants and buzzer-door clothing stores catering to the nouveaux riches. But one shop in the heart of the Village remains resilient in the face of encroaching gentrification: Carmine Street Guitars. There, custom-guitar maker Rick Kelly builds handcrafted guitars out of reclaimed wood from old hotels and other local buildings. Nothing looks or sounds quite like a Rick Kelly guitar, which is why they are embraced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Patti Smith and Jim Jarmusch, to name just a few. Featuring a cast of prominent musicians and artists, The Rick Kelly Project captures a day in the life of Carmine Street Guitars, while examining the history and changes of the colourful and storied neighbourhood of Greenwich Village.

24 February 2010The United Nations remains strongly committed to doing everything possible to help the people of Haiti but is realistic about what it can accomplish before the rainy season begins in earnest on 1 May, said a senior official with the world body. “When the rains come, the UN will still be there in solidarity with the people of Haiti living in conditions not so dissimilar from many of them and working hard to help them,” Anthony Banbury, Acting Principal Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General at the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), told journalists in New York. Mr. Banbury – who is scheduled to return to Haiti tomorrow – admitted that while plans are underway to provide more than one million homeless people with some form of shelter and sanitation, not everyone will have “good shelter” or “good sanitation” before the heavy rains start. He praised the UN response effort as “truly impressive” given the challenges, and said that the expectation that “people were just going to be housed overnight” was beyond the scope of any group or organization. More than 66,000 families (330,000 people) have received emergency shelter materials, about 30 per cent of the estimated need. More than 250,000 tarpaulins and tents are in the pipeline and will be distributed immediately upon arrival, according to the latest report from the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). In addition to distributing shelter materials, there is a critical need for rubble removal as well as for the identification of suitable land for the construction of transitional shelter to alleviate decongestion in overcrowded sites. Comparing the recovery effort in Haiti with those he experienced following Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar in 2008 and the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, Mr. Banbury said the complexity of the situation in Haiti made it the “most challenging disaster response that that the United Nations has ever faced in its history.” The most serious problems currently in Haiti – sanitation and shelter – are interconnected in a way that makes it impossible to solve one without the other, posing challenges for the UN system of clusters in which one agency takes a lead on managing a humanitarian issue, Mr. Banbury said. He also praised the UN peacekeepers for taking on a new role as emergency first responders during the 12 January earthquake. “The UN peacekeeping apparatus is not designed for, and really has very little experience dealing with, sudden onset natural disasters. So we had to do – in this case – something that we have never done before,” Mr. Banbury said. As relief efforts continue, the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) announced it has started distributing aid to quake survivors and host families in a poor region of Haiti, near the border with the Dominican Republic. Local officials and Haitian Red Cross staff began distributing the UNHCR aid on Saturday in the town of Fonds-Verrettes, where the local population has been swollen some 10 to 15 per cent by the arrival of people fleeing from the devastated capital, Port-au-Prince. Each family, including many hosts, was given an aid pack that contained a blanket, a bucket, five bars of soap, a flashlight, a cooking pot, five spoons, matches and sanitary pads. “This small-scale aid is intended to help meet some of the most basic non-food item needs of those host families whose already very limited resources are being stretched to the absolute limit,” said UNHCR spokesman Gonzalo Vargas Llosa, adding that the agency hoped this would also help prevent further displacement.
Subscribers were counted on Oct. 9. Subscribers to r/warriors are likely inflated because of a feature of Reddit’s mobile app.Source: Reddit CLEr/clevelandcavs36,85025,8610.70 Comments from flaired fans on r/nba DENr/denvernuggets10,39411,0071.06 The spikes on the charts often correlate with playoff runs, blockbuster trades or better-than-expected starts to a season. For example, the fever of Atlanta Hawks fandom peaked during their 60-win season in 2014-15, which culminated in an appearance in the Eastern Conference finals. The spike on Minnesota’s chart lines up with the summer the Timberwolves traded for Jimmy Butler. Meanwhile, Sacramento Kings fans were most active during the start of the 2014-15 NBA season, when the team jumped out to a 9-5 record (they finished 29-53).To understand the landscape of fandom on /r/nba, it’s worth examining in detail the comment activity for fans of the Philadelphia 76ers, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans.76ersNo team has had a more linear increase in comment activity over the past seven years than the Philadelphia 76ers. Sixers fans have grown more active on /r/nba each year, in part because their team has gotten incrementally better each year. PHOr/suns14,30213,8720.97 PHIr/sixers44,36832,8240.74 NOPr/NOLAPelicans6,5958,1311.23 TORr/torontoraptors52,28958,9351.13 The most-upvoted post of all time on /r/nba is the announcement that LeBron would sign with the Lakers. Ever since then, the L.A. fan base, which is one of the largest on /r/nba, has been more active than usual. Meanwhile, comment activity among Cleveland fans is the lowest it’s been since the first post-LeBron era.PelicansThe New Orleans Pelicans exist in one of the smallest media markets in the NBA. Their team-specific subreddit, /r/NOLAPelicans, has the second fewest subscribers among all 30 teams (/r/memphisgrizzlies has the fewest). And yet, their fan base is in the middle of one of its most active periods. For every subscriber to /r/NOLAPelicans, Pelicans’ fans made more than 1.2 comments on /r/nba in the month of October, the highest mark of any fan base.

But this is probably misleading because of the inflated subscriber count of /r/warriors. During the summer of 2017, those who downloaded Reddit’s mobile app were subscribed to the Warriors subreddit by default if they selected the NBA as a category they were interested in. This resulted in a spike in subscribers to /r/warriors and created a gap between them and the rest of the league.Check out our latest NBA predictions.

Hardly a day goes by without a post on the latest Joel Embiid sound bite or Markelle Fultz lowlight (when he’s not injured or involved in trade rumors). So long as those two players are on the team, Philly fans will have plenty to talk about.Because the data is available only through Oct. 31, 2018, the chart does not capture the reaction to Philadelphia’s trade for Butler earlier this month. But given that the replays of Butler’s game winners against Charlotte and Brooklyn are two of the most-upvoted, or highest-rated, posts of the season thus far on r/nba, 76ers fans are likely just warming up.Cavs and LakersWhen LeBron James returned to Cleveland in the summer of 2014, Cavaliers fans instantly became more active on /r/nba. With their teammate squabbles, midseason trades and postseason heroics, the Cavaliers were a constant topic of conversation from 2014 to 2018 — and never more so than during their championship run in 2016.But when James left to join the Lakers this offseason, he took the conversation with him. We charted the comment activity for fans of the Lakers and Cavaliers together, without indexing the shares so that we could make a cross-team comparison.
Show more Lack of adipocytes is one of the main reasons why permanent wrinkles become etched on the faces of older people.Laboratory studies showed how hair follicles held the key to keeping healing skin scar-free and smooth by releasing a vital signalling molecule, called Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP).BMP was found to instruct scar-forming cells commonly found in healing wounds, myofibroblasts, to transform themselves into adipocytes.Lead scientist Professor George Cotsarelis, from the University of Pennsylvania in the US, said: “Essentially, we can manipulate wound healing so that it leads to skin regeneration rather than scarring.”Typically, myofibroblasts were thought to be incapable of becoming a different type of cell.”But our work shows we have the ability to influence these cells, and that they can be efficiently and stably converted into adipocytes.”Tests of the process were conducted in both mouse and human scar-forming tissue grown in the laboratory.Although the research focused on scarring, the discovery reported in the journal Science has much wider implications, said Prof Cotsarelis.Adipocyte loss was a common complication of certain medical conditions such as HIV infection and a natural part of ageing, he pointed out.Prof Cotsarelis added: “Our findings can potentially move us toward a new strategy to regenerate adipocytes in wrinkled skin, which could lead us to brand new anti-ageing treatments.” Essentially, we can manipulate wound healing so that it leads to skin regeneration rather than scarringProfessor George Cotsarelis, University of Pennsylvania Wrinkles could be a thing of the past as scientists find a way to regenerate fatty cells which keep the skin looking youthful.Scientist say the ground-breaking new discovery could not only lead to spectacular anti-ageing treatments, it may also pave the way to scar-free healing of wounds.Fat cells called adipocytes are normally found in skin but are lost when scars form and as a result of ageing.

Anyone who predicted that the iPhone 4S launch would be a dud may be chomping on his shoe right now. The latest iPhone is certainly no slouch in the sales department, as Apple announced sales of more than four million of the handsets over the weekend. This shatters previous records for iPhone launches, and shows that the lack of 4G and a fresh design didn’t stop customers from throwing down $200 or more. Unfortunately, though, some of those four million buyers may be causing network and server congestion for both Siri and Sprint’s 3G network.The huge launch of the latest iPhone trounces the sales numbers of the iPhone 4’s opening weekend sales of 1.4 million. Larger supplies, more retail partners, and availability on three carriers (as opposed to one) certainly contributed to that. Yet there’s still no arguing that the updated smartphone is off to a monumental start in the sales department.The chart below lends a visual perspective to just how much bigger the 4S’ launch has been than previous iPhone launches:Network Congestion?To paraphrase the Grateful Dead, though, these white clouds may have a touch of grey. Some Sprint users have reported slow data speeds since Friday’s 4S launch. This isn’t a hardware problem with their CDMA iPhone though, as users on a variety of Sprint smartphones have said that their 3G speeds are crawling. In some cases, downloads have apparently been as slow as 0.16 Mbps. Yikes.Some have questioned how well Sprint’s network would be able to handle the sudden addition of millions of data-hogging devices. While AT&T has been plagued by complaints of voice calls dropping ever since the first iPhone arrived in 2007, abysmally-slow 3G speeds on Sprint would make that look mild in comparison.The majority of Sprint users are apparently still getting more typical download speeds, but enough have experienced the problems to fill up forum threads and bloggers’ inboxes.Though it appears to be cleared up now, iPhone 4S activations on Friday were also a problem on AT&T. Some early buyers were forced to sit for hours with their new toy, staring at nothing but an activation screen.The carriers haven’t been the only ones having problems, as Apple’s Siri servers appeared to be down for many this morning. As many of those four million buyers drove to work with their 4S for the first time, they wanted to play with their new hands-free capabilities. Perhaps this was too much for Apple’s servers.Many of us were greeted with a long pause to Siri queries, followed by “Sorry, I’m having trouble connecting to the network right now” from the A.I. assistant. The majority of Siri’s activity happens on their end, so it’s vulnerable to going down, like any other server-dependent service. It’s back up and running for me now, but let’s hope that Apple is prepared and won’t let this become a regular rush hour occurrence.via MacRumors, chart image via MacStories
10 Movies That Would Have Been Better Split in HalfAmazon Is Making a ‘Lord of the Rings’ MMORPG When we talk about all-time geek franchises, Lord of the Rings has to rank pretty high on the list. J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic tale of Middle-earth inspired an entire genre and hundreds if not thousands of knock-offs, but the original will always be the best. After the wild success of Peter Jackson’s filmic adaptations, LOTR swung back into the wider public consciousness. And with that success obviously comes toys. Here are our picks for 11 Lord of the Rings toys any geek should pick up.Super Poseable Frodo FigureWhy don’t we open up with the protagonist of the trilogy, young Frodo Baggins, who comes to his uncle’s birthday party not expecting to be shanghaied into a journey of world-shattering importance. This Toy Biz figure was laser-scanned from the actor in the films and then carefully sculpted with a huge amount of articulation, making him way more moveable than a standard figure. The little dude is armed and dangerous, ready to skulk his way up Mount Doom to trash that cursed ring.Get it at Amazon.comGandalf The White Action FigureWhen Gandalf apparently dies at the hands of the Balrog at the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, it’s one of the most shocking moments in fantasy fiction. His heroic sacrifice allows the Fellowship to continue on their quest, but it also robs them of their most powerful ally. When he returns later on clad all in white as the first ever Super Saiyan (we’re only sort of kidding here), it’s a big deal. This 2003 figure depicts the mighty wizard in full glory, and has a lever-operated sword-swinging mechanism so you can fend off the hordes with ease.Get it at Amazon.comGollum Action FigureTwisted by the power of the One Ring into a covetous cave-dwelling creature, Gollum is one of the most iconic characters in the LOTR universe. This action figure from NECA is ridiculously detailed, duplicating the appearance of the little dude from the movies with strings of greasy hair and tattered loincloth. 25 points of articulation allow you to make him sneak and skulk around your toy shelf with ease. Sculpted at 1/4 scale, he stands ten inches when fully upright, but how often is that going to happen? My dude isn’t known for good posture.Get it at Amazon.comLEGO Tower Of OrthancOne of the most impressive movie tie-in LEGO sets ever made, the Tower of Orthanc — the massive obsidian structure that loomed over Isengard under the rule of Saruman — translates remarkably well to construction toy form. When it’s completed, this puppy stands over two feet tall with six distinct floors and a ton of interactive features — folding staircases, trap doors and a light-up palantir at the top. It even comes with an assemblable Ent to lay siege to the place. It’s been discontinued, but you can still get it from aftermarket sellers.Get it at Amazon.comWETA Workshop Aragorn FigureNew Zealand’s WETA Workshop was founded in 1987 to create effects and props for Peter Jackson’s indie movies and has become one of the industry’s biggest powerhouses, contributing to flicks like Mad Max: Fury Road and Alita: Battle Angel. The company also handled all of the Lord of the Rings films, of course, and they also moved into the consumer market with a series of really neat figures from those movies. These aren’t action figures per se — no articulation — but they’re cool, stylized sculpts of some of the franchise’s biggest names. This Aragorn is a great example, ready to draw his sword and throw down on the dark hordes.Get it at Amazon.comShelob FigureThere are lots of really dope villains in the Lord of the Rings franchise, as the Fellowship runs up against obstacles of all types as they rush to dump the Ring. One of the most notable is Shelob, the massive spider who lurks in the Mountains of Shadow near Cirith Ungol, spinning her webs to ensnare unwary travelers. When Gollum lures Frodo and Sam to her, he expects she’ll chow down on the hobbits and spit out the Ring so he can get it back, but naturally his plan goes awry. This is a badass figure of the she-spider that has more joints than you can count on both hands for serious pose control.Get it at Amazon.comMattel Ken LegolasOne of the absolute weirdest cross-platform tie-ins we’ve ever seen, Barbie’s California hunk boyfriend Ken apparently decided to get in on the cosplay boom with this seriously dope Legolas outfit. Equipped with a realistic bow and quiver of arrows, Ken is on his way to Comic-Con to hook up with a Galadriel while Barbie is at the mall or whatever. Jokes aside, this is a pretty dope rendition of the Prince of Mirkwood that will occupy a place of honor on your toy shelf.Get it at Amazon.comOrc Archer FigureAs anybody who’s played through the Shadow of Mordor games knows, orcs are all over Middle-Earth in hundreds of permutations. And no LOTR toy collection is going to be complete without

Our homes are the expressions of who we are. This reflects in the walls, soft furnishings like cushions, bed spreads, and everything else related to our home. These are to our home, what clothing, make-up and jewelry are to us. With the passage of time, change of seasons, our moods change and so does the requirement of our homes. Summer 2013 moved forward from the safe colors of winter 2012 to liberating textures, naturals and brights. There has been a focus on transparency, use of plastics and synthetic materials to give shine and sheen to summer designs. Besides, a focus on interaction between naturals and synthetic techniques, juxtaposing light and washed out bright colors with dark undertones and intriguing contrasts. Floral and jungle themes came to the fore this summer. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’As we move further into the summer, the monsoon brings relief from the sweltering heat and increased levels of humidity. At this time of the year, its best to go for lighter – flatter textures and natural yarns like linen, suggests www.bandhinihome.com, to brighten up your homes this monsoon. Avoid velvet and thicker materials as they tend to absorb humidity. Linen can make you feel comfortable and creates a harmonious environment with its organic feel. One can also use soft pure cottons for a natural feel. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixGiven that the monsoon season lasts for a few months in India, there are many aspects that need to be looked into while considering home care needs, recommends Zynna, a leading furnishing brand. In fact, it is a good idea to get a professional to do an inspection of your home, old or new, prior to the monsoon and ensure that you find and fix the problems that keep recurring.Avoid humidity- It’s better to keep the humidity in control and keep the windows and doors open for a free movement of air. This must be done daily as damp interiors will certainly have the wall papers ripping off from the joints. Get the walls ready- In any case, before applying the wall paper, one must ensure that the walls are well treated and that the seepage and rain water does not affect the beautiful decorative paper after installation.Special Drainage System- When it comes to monsoon resistance, it may be better to ensure special drainage system in your windows and doors, which would take care of the rain water and would not allow it to seep inside your home.Regular Check- Summers in India tend to be humid with many thunderstorms, and about half of rainfall for the year falls between June and August. Hence, one must ensure that the wall paper is checked regularly for any damage in these rainy and humid months.Water Resistant- In many homes today, the kitchen is now, no more a small nook, but a beautiful open space with fancy wall papers. Now our oily food and cooking patterns fill up the air with sticky particles which mixed with moisture from the air, harm the wall. Hence the kitchen needs special water resistant wall treatments and must be open to circulation.Check on Joints- It’s best to have a check for any peel off. It’s the joints which are the worst hit, hence, if one detects a small rip in the wall papers joints, corrective action of re-application must be taken.immediately.
When one thinks of Nazi concentration camps like Auschwitz, music is certainly not the first thing that comes to mind. However, a music theory professor from the University of Michigan has recently unearthed what is believed to be one of several popular pieces of music played at Auschwitz.Auschwitz, in Poland, was one of a network of concentration camps set up by the Nazis during the Second World War. It was first built to house Polish political prisoners, the first of whom arrived at the camp in 1940.Auschwitz-Birkenau main track. Photo by C.Puisney CC BY-SA 3.0It consisted primarily of three parts: Auschwitz I, the original section; Auschwitz II-Birkenau, which was both a concentration and extermination camp; and Auschwitz III-Monowitz, which was a labor camp. Auschwitz II-Birkenau was one of the largest sites of Jewish extermination: around 1.1 million people are believed to have died at the camp, 90 percent of whom were Jews.Life in the camps was extremely hard to say the least. Prisoners’ days lasted from between 3:00 and 4:30 in the morning (depending on the season) until the evening. They had little food, no rest during their 12-hour workday, and accommodations were beyond deplorable. Sanitary conditions were miserable, with inadequate latrines until some were installed in 1943, and little fresh water.Still photograph from the Soviet Film of the liberation of Auschwitz.Vermin like rats and lice were rampant, and many prisoners died of typhus and other bacterial infections, not to mention starvation and malnourishment. In short, it was a brutal, horrifying existence for all who were imprisoned.So it is surprising, perhaps, to discover that the music played at Auschwitz was particularly upbeat. According to Professor Patricia Hall, who examined the manuscripts of music from the camp, she was “completely thrown” by the song titles, let alone the actual music.Auschwitz, Poland – January 1, 2011: The Auschwitz concentration camp is located about 50 km from Krakow. The picture shows two rows of electrical barbed wire surrounding the camp on winter day.Hall had traveled to Auschwitz in 2016 with the hope that she could learn more about the music that had been played at the camps during the Second World War. Two of the more popular song titles translated as “The Most Beautiful Time of Life” and “Sing a Song When You’re Sad.”Over the next two years, she examined several other hand-written music manuscripts that had been arranged and performed by prisoners. Eventually, this led to the performance of one of these pieces for the first time since 1945.Oswiecim, Poland – February 16, 2018: The famous arch of the concentration camp Auschwitz. Inscription: Arbeit macht frei (work sets you free).In essence, Hall wanted to resurrect the music that had been lost to time after the liberation of the camps. “I’ve used the expression, ‘giving life,’ to this manuscript that’s been sitting somewhere for 75 years. … Researching one of these manuscripts is just the beginning — you want people to be able to hear what these pieces sound like. … I think one of the messages I’ve taken from this is the fact that even in a horrendous situation like a concentration camp, that these men were able to produce this beautiful music.”In order to make this happen, she asked for help from another university professor, Oriol Sans, who is director of the Contemporary Directions Ensemble, as well as Josh Devries, a graduate student who was able to transcribe the manuscripts into music notation software in order to make them easier to read and play.In October 2018, the ensemble gathered to record “The Most Beautiful Time of Life.” In its first public presentation since the Second World War, the piece was performed at a concert in November 2018 at the University of Michigan.“Selection” of Hungarian Jews on the ramp at Auschwitz-II (Birkenau), May/June 1944When Professor Patricia Hall played the recording at one of her university lectures, the audience was visibly uncomfortable. The piece is upbeat, a foxtrot, and featured “euphoric lyrics” about falling in love in the spring and cherishing one’s precious time. It was not at all what her audience was expecting: “I’ve heard various adjectives used to describe this foxtrot, even like ‘twisted,’ given the situation that it was performed in and created in.”Using data from the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, Hall was able to identify the three musicians who had originally arranged the music, as two of them had signed it with their prisoner identification numbers.The original manuscript. Photo by Auschwitz-Birkenau State MuseumThey were Antoni Gargul (number 5665) and Maksymilian Pilat (number 5131). And because the museum’s archives also had photographs of the two men, Hall was able to put faces to the names associated with the manuscript. As she stated, “The transformation of going from a number to the face of this person was a very

Related Content November 3, 2014 — Elekta’s Clarity 4-D prostate monitoring system can now automatically interrupt, or “gate,” the radiation beam when it detects that the prostate has moved out of position. Clarity 4-D Monitoring software has enabled doctors to continuously visualize the prostate’s precise location during radiation therapy. U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for Clarity to be used with Elekta’s Response gating interface will give United States physicians the potential to further safeguard the patient’s normal tissues from overexposure to radiation during prostate radiotherapy. The feature is available as an option with Elekta’s advanced Versa HD radiation therapy treatment system.Reliably localizing the prostate is critical during precision radiotherapy, as dose is being constantly delivered to its assumed location even though the prostate’s position may be changing due to pressure from surrounding anatomy such as the bladder or rectum.”The Clarity system permits clinicians to set the amount of prostate movement allowable over a given period, for example, three or five millimeters for a five-second period, depending on the dose rate and other factors,” explains Tony Falco, senior vice president, Elekta Software. “When Clarity detects anything over this limit, the treatment is automatically paused to allow clinicians to correct for the motion. This could be especially important for clinicians pursuing advanced prostate protocols, such as reduced margin hypofractionated therapy or stereotactic body radiation therapy [SBRT].” Automated beam gating with Response will also help streamline prostate radiotherapy workflow by removing the human reaction time to prostate position alerts, he adds.For more information: www.elekta.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans.
