Shelter under the storm | MurciaEconomía.com

My name is Alma and until two days ago

was part of living humans, but

that has changed … now I see everything

from another dimension.

The storm advanced and all the terraces of the city remained empty. The water crashed down on the road, forming pools that grew larger and larger.

– Run Loren! This time he caught us well! Completely unprepared.

I was waiting sitting under the awning of a little bar called Dfoodz. On the glass of his door there was a sign “we will be back soon, we send whatever you want to your home.” It gave me to think about the reasons why that place was not open, since, although it was raining so much, it was also closed inside.

The two friends took shelter next to me under the awning of the pergola in that corner with so much charm.

– My mother Miguel, How sad the city is without the joy of bars! What a situation we are living in.

– Hey, and I say: we should look for this site on social networks to warn the owner that the awning has been left on, that with the storm it will not break and have double spending – Loren said to his friend.

– Good idea! Let’s search.

I peeked through the glass and could see that Dami was inside, in the background, in his kitchen. Despite being closed, he continued to cook for his customers.

I stepped through the glass and stormed in, thinking of getting his attention to make him realize that his awning was in danger. I grabbed his mobile that had been turned off on the bar and went to the kitchen where he was concentrating preparing his delicacies and I left him where i could see it.

That pair of friends was looking for his number on social networks to notify him.

Dami was making her wonderful croquettes and had her hands full so she didn’t turn on her mobile, although he did see it.

Meanwhile Miguel and Loren had already located the phone and were calling. “The mobile you are calling is turned off or out of coverage at this time.”

– What a fabric, Miguel, what do we do?

Now it was my turn to act from the inside, the other way around, so that from the outside they would realize that the chef was inside and with knocking on the door, Dami would come out.

Next to the glass was a beautiful star-shaped lamp that remained unlit. I walked past the switch several times, so my impulse would turn it on and attract the attention of those outside. I got it! The star lit up and at that moment the two kids peeked into the room.

– Look Loren, there seems to be someone inside. Let’s ring the bell!

The two of them approached the door getting wet from top to bottom and began pounding on the glass until Dami realized someone was outside.

He put out the fire and went out to meet them.

– Hi guys, what do you need?

Good thing you saw us! Look at the one that is falling and we have been alarmed thinking that your awning could break. You do not need more expenses, quite the opposite.

– To! But when has this been assembled?

– Well, a while ago and thanks to you we have taken shelter, but we had to notify you so that do not lose more than required

The two boys helped Dami, went for the crank and picked up the awning and the cook invited them inside.

– I can’t serve you anything, but I’ll give you some croquettes and you take them at home. Thanks a lot.

– Miguel, do you think we take an order to drink at home?

– Yes of course, one lid of each!

“Thank you Dami, but we are going to pay you for them and you are also going to give us a few more things,” Loren explained.

Some storms they form at one time and at other times it rains on wet. The important thing is that the conscience to help prevail over everything else.

– After the storm comes the calm and In the meantime, that the rain does not destroy what works well – Loren commented aloud.

– Many thanks friends! – exclaimed Dami. Now I put it to take away.

Impending storms cannot be prevented by hitting them, but they can be dealt with like a ferocious animal. Looking them in the eye and standing up to them, and above all protecting himself.

Today for you tomorrow for me! – And saying this, Miguel and Loren said goodbye to Dami, assuring her that they would return for more delicacies.

I sat there for a while longer looking at the empty streets and thinking that the hearts I had found were full of strength, illusion Y esperanza, and also of generosity Y solidarity, so necessary in difficult times when any unconditional support marks both who receives it and who gives it.

I was very proud to have lived in a world where there are people so capable of showing that, despite the difficulties, there is always something to offer to others.

I wish you a good week and a lot of solidarity with others! Until next Friday.

How technology transformed cinema | MurciaEconomía.com

Cinema is known as the seventh art, which inspires us and leads us to a magic of creativity that the filmmakers embody in every movie we see. Continuing a bit with the free publicity I did last week for the HBO series, NeXt, today I will talk a little about movies and how technology managed to transform them into great film productions, making the impossible come true.

We start first with the scriptwriters who are the first to assemble the story and devise the characters and second, technology as the executor and great promoter and innovator of this art.

With more than 120 years in which the directors crossed the screens with imaginary worlds, defying science fiction and creating the special effects in incredible recordings; the first movies we saw as a result of this was one with photo sequences, “Sallie Gardner at a Gallop (The Horse in Motion-1879)” where a horse gallops through the air, created by Eadweard Muybridge, who invented the zoopraxiscopio, which projected 24 frames per second, letting us see the horse fly.

“Voyage to the Moon” – Le Voyage dans la Lune, 1902, Georges Méliès was a revolutionary, with his extensive filmography, he innovated with the use and perfection of surprising techniques and special effects such as stop motion or double exposure, Méliès is credited with building the world’s first film studio.

“Humorous Phases of Funny Faces” – 1906, was the birth of animated cinema.

“Cabiria” – 1914, the first “dolly shot“used in the environment, for which a device very similar to the one that is still used today was handled.

“Conquering the West” – How the West Was Won 1962, with its complex Cinerama technology, was the first film screened with a panoramic aspect ratio, using three 35mm cameras projecting simultaneously through 27mm lenses onto a curved screen.

“Mary Poppins 1964”, the animatronics have given us unforgettable images and creatures, from the terrifying shark of “Jaws”, the endearing “ET”., Through the “Gremlins” or the impressive dinosaurs of “Jurassic Park”. But long before all these examples, Mary Poppins introduced us to the first animatronic of the story: the endearing little bird that accompanied the babysitter played by Julie Andrews as she sang “Spoonfull of Sugar.”

Who can forget what for many will be a Disney classic “Toy Story 1995”, the animation studio Pixar gave birth to the first CGI feature film in history, used 300 processors to render the entire film and, in addition to showing of an excellent narrative, it provided us with the first photorealistic computer-generated streets.

“Windhorse 1996”, this film opened the ban on this digital cinemaAlthough we are used to feature films shot with different RED models, this was the first to be shot and edited using digital technology; more specifically Sony DCR-VX1000 and DVW-700WS cameras, and AVID editing software. In spite of everything, if we have anyone to thank for the digital boom, it is George Lucas and his Star Wars “; considered the first film shot entirely with this type of technology.

The technique known as Chroma Key o pantalla croma, supposed the arrival of the first digital effects to the cinema since it allowed to place the characters in scenarios where they were not really, or perform impossible actions, see “Superman” fly, or an imperial soldier fly through the air at high speed was already possible thanks to the magic of chroma.

Drones have become an essential tool in the film industry for the spectacular shots it allows to shoot and its low cost. Productions like Game of Thrones, or James Bond 007: Spectre they have used drones in their filming.

Bullet time was first used in the movie Matrix, to represent Neo’s ability to dodge bullets by creating a movement that defied the laws of physics by extremely slowing down time.

Probably the name of Stagecraft it does not sound like anything, but if I tell you that it is the special effects technology that has been used to record the scenes of The Mandalorian, Stagecraft could be considered a evolution of chroma techniques since it is based on the same principle to represent backgrounds and settings in which the actors are not really found.

Shapeshifter, artificial intelligence to rejuvenate the actors, actually, it is a technique similar to the one used by the creepy deepfakes in which an actor impersonates the gestures of a popular character and, using artificial intelligence, the character’s gestures are exchanged with those of the actor, completely substituting his movements.

Technology has been one of the main protagonists in all this path of discovering how to deceive ourselves as spectators, that is why they already have a list of films for which we are lovers of this art and see how the special effects evolve in each film.

Do not forget if you go to a theater or cinema to wear your mask, let’s follow the recommendations and that is how we all take care of ourselves.

Happy tuesday to [email protected]

It will soon be a year since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left for the United States never to return. They announced it on January 18 after spending more than a month on vacation in Los Angeles, where they spent Christmas with Meghan’s mother instead of with the Royal Family, as had been tradition.

By Vanity Fair

Of course, before formally abandoning their life as royals, the Sussexes returned to the UK in March to say goodbye and finalize the deals for their long-awaited freedom, which was finally granted by Queen Elizabeth II in April. And since then, they have never seen each other again in person.

That is why all the British people were anxious to know how the next Christmas would go when Harry and Meghan had to return yes or yes to England. Although not for pleasure, but because on January 11 the trial that the dukes are holding against Associated Newspaper, which owns several tabloids, is scheduled to be held in London, which they accuse of publishing false information about them.
