  1. Syuhei Iguro, Ryan Plestid, Volodymyr Takhistov. Monopoles from an Atmospheric Fixed Target Experiment. Physical Review Letters, 2022; 128 (20) DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.128.201101

Magnets are intimately familiar to everyone, with wide-ranging applications within daily life, from TVs and computers to kids toys. However, breaking any magnet, such as a navigation compass needle consisting of north and south poles in half, will result in just two smaller two-pole magnets. This mystery has eluded researchers for decades since 1931, when physicist Paul Dirac theorized the existence of one-pole ?magnetic monopoles? ? particles comparable to electrons but with a magnetic charge.

To explore whether magnetic monopoles exist, an international team of researchers, including the University of Tokyo?s Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) Fellow Volodymyr Takhistov, studied available data from a variety of terrestrial experiments and have carried out the most sensitive searches to date for monopoles over a broad range of possible masses. The researchers focused on an unusual source of monopoles ? atmospheric collisions of cosmic rays that have been occurring for eons.

The interdisciplinary research required bringing together expertise from several distinct corners of science ? including accelerator physics, neutrino interactions and cosmic rays.

Cosmic ray collisions with the atmosphere have already played a central role in advancing science, especially the exploration of ghostly neutrinos. This lead to Kavli IPMU Senior Fellow Takaaki Kajita?s 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery by the Super-Kamiokande experiment that neutrinos oscillate in flight, implying that they have mass.

Partially inspired by the results of Super-Kamiokande, the team set to work on monopoles. Particularly intriguing were light monopoles with masses around the electroweak scale, which can be readily accessible to conventional particle accelerators.

By carrying out simulations of cosmic ray collisions, analogously to particle collisions at the LHC at CERN, the researchers obtained a persistent beam of light monopoles raining down upon different terrestrial experiments.

This unique source of monopoles is especially interesting, as it is independent of any pre-existing monopoles such as those potentially left over as relics from the early Universe, and covers a broad range of energies.

By re-analyzing data from a wide range of previous experimental monopole searches, the researchers identified novel limits on monopoles across a wide range of masses, including those beyond the reach of conventional collider monopole searches.

These results and source of monopoles studied by the researchers will serve as a useful benchmark for interpreting subsequent future monopole searches at terrestrial laboratories.

Chip and Dale: To the Rescue (United States/2022). Director: Akiva Shaffer. Film script: Dan Gregor, Doug Mand. Cast: Andy Samberg, John Mulaney, Will Arnett, Seth Rogen, JK Simmons. Duration: 97 minutes. Available in: Disney+. Our opinion: very good.

The Hollywood that looks with disappointment is not something new. There were not a few feature films that were encouraged to distrustfully observe the traps and vices that flood the film industry, that place that the Oscars and other rituals insist on showing only through their lights. But the shadows exist, and works like The twilight of a life, captives of evil either the path of dreams they took care to check the cracks behind the fame. Y Chip and Dale to the rescue he is encouraged to study those same topics, but emphasizing humor and a sharp power of observation.

Chip and Dale to the rescue

in the universe of Chip and Dale to the rescue, humans coexist with animated characters. In this way, the protagonists of the most endearing drawings are artists who seek to preserve their place in an industry that discards them, as fashions pass. Former glories are confined to signing autographs for old fans, while others choose to leave acting for jobs that provide shelter and food. And that dichotomy is what divides the two leading squirrels. During the early ’90s, they starred in the series Chip and Dale: The Rescuers, a success that had no continuity, and that ended up separating the path of its stars. Chip is dedicated to selling insurance policies while Dale seeks to recover some of his lost fame, attending events and retouching his figure (he went from being a two-dimensional animated character to a much more modern CGI). The relationship between the two is distant, but the kidnapping of an old castmate will bring them back together to take them to the underworld of disgraced cartoons.

They only take a few minutes to reach an obvious conclusion, and that is that Chip and Dale to the rescue she is the direct daughter of Who cheated on roger rabbit? (in fact, the rabbit is one of the first cameos in this film). There is an idea of ??exploring the world of animated creatures from a police angle, through a plot that is enhanced when it winks at adults, and not so much at the little ones. And as in that masterpiece of Robert Zemeckisthe forcefulness of a clearly disenchanted story, is disguised as gags and an infinity of cameos, which mask what the director, Akiva Schaffer, is so concerned about.

Throughout its hour and a half, in this film you can find an innumerable number of appearances that reveal the director’s interest in emphasizing that animation is always much more complex than it seems, and that the underground characters of Robert Crumbcan coexist with a President Butt Head, as well as with My Little Pony or Peppa Pig. The animated characters, even the most innocent (or worse still, those considered ?stupid?), reflect the lack of lucidity of that audience that downplays them. And in that world that destroys prejudiced hierarchies, and that vindicates the millennial nostalgia that saves figures like he-manis where the main squirrels move.

Chip and Dale to the rescue
Chip and Dale to the rescue

Chip and Dale, minor characters in the pantheon Disney, they never had the importance of Mickey, Donald, Pluto or the rest of that group. The highest they reached was the aforementioned Chip and Dale: The Rescuersa minor fiction that can well be grouped with other beloved and forgotten Disney projects alike, along the lines of The Gummi Bears either The Wuzzles. And the film fictionalizes that painful fall into oblivion, with two characters who, as happens to innumerable shooting stars of the cinema, are faced with the challenge of insisting on the defeat of a career in Hollywood, or abandoning said dream to embrace a gray routine.

In this way, this piece does not seek to discover gunpowder, but it does portray the bitterness of a carnivorous industry, that currently feeds on disposable superheroes, stretched franchises and crossovers, spinoffs, sequels and prequels that border on the absurd. So, the axis of Chip and Dale to the rescue It not only goes through the struggle of its characters, but also through that world in which they move, fascinating and tragic at the same time, and so clearly inspired by what happens every Thursday on the billboard.

This is not a great film because it looks cynically at Hollywood, but because it puts into practice what it denounces, and that is the importance of vindicating the so-called minor titles (or worse yet, “pass-on”), in this case, animated comedies. . Y Chip and Dale to the rescue shows that the most lucid reflections do not come from unexpected places, but from those that unfairly go under the radar.

You may have forgotten that ‘Stranger Things’ is a fabulous series. It’s normal: it’s been a long time since its last season (which also sounded a bit like the end and typecasting) and Netflix hasn’t grabbed the headlines with this fourth installment. And yet, the second you start watching it, you remember why it was an international phenomenon and you grew to love it. And it is that ‘Stranger Things 4’ is, without exaggeration, the best season? Until now.

the hour of terror

If something stands out from this fourth installment, it is that from the first episode delve into the most classic terror. And I’m not saying it as a set phrase: the last minutes of this chapter delve into body horror and supernatural terror, reaching limits of cruelty that we never thought we would see in this series. Throughout the season, ‘Stranger things’ will get into psychological fear, nightmares and will add a touch of gore: when you think they have taken a break, another grotesque sequence arrives that reminds you that Hawkins is no longer a safe place for children.

We are in familiar territory but at the same time completely new: the brutality of the deaths of Vecna, the new villain who terrorizes the gang, is surprising and infallible precisely because of its surprise factor. No one imagined that “the series of the 80s” would become the festival of terror. And they are not random words, because this season is so smart that it never falls into the ?witch train? effect, with fake scares based on turning up the music and sequences out of context with unknown characters suffering that have nothing to do with the rest of the plots: if terror works so well it is for his preparation, his fantastic set pieces and a bulletproof script.

Stranger Things 4

‘Stranger Things 4’ opens all the doors very quickly, and at the same time we can see on the screen seven or eight different plots. However, they are distinguishable and interesting enough on their own that you never want one to end so you can move on to the next. They are all important, they are part of a whole, they entertain and contribute, making this one of the best series of the year.

The force of evil hides in the shadows

If in ‘Stranger Things 3’ we entered the adventure with giant monsters, in a script that tended more towards romance and comedy, in this fourth part we are totally within ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ thanks to a villain with a design that well it’s not original (reminds a lot of the Night King from ‘Game of thrones’) It is as terrifying as it is surprising. His presence is instantly recognizable and his way of killing is already iconic. Prefer to a more human and thoughtful characterbut with powers, coldness, and a lack of empathy, it’s refreshing after the mindless giant monster of the previous batch of episodes.

Vecna ??Stranger things 4

To emphasize this rarefied environment between dream and reality, Robert Englund himself, eternal Freddy Krueger from ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’, he has a small supporting role that serves as a tribute and at the same time as a demonstration that he is a wonderful actor in his own right: his monologue is devastating, accompanied by a make-up that, once again, crosses the borders of what ‘Stranger things’ has accustomed us to to expect from her.

Not everything is horror in the Netflix series, although it is fair to recognize that when it moves away not so strong: beyond the buddy movie between Dustin and Steve, or the love triangles that finally do justice to the fans’ favorite couples, the comedy does not quite hit the spot and the adventure replaces the drama, in such a way that we never stop feeling close to the characters: every time there could be a potentially dramatic moment, the series launches an adventure for the characters. The essential thing is that you never, ever get bored. And we have to be fair: he succeeds.

'Stranger Things 4' is a joy: the essential Netflix series returns with a more terrifying but just as addictive season

too many characters

Millie Bobby Brown joked during this season’s presentation that It was about time the Duffers took out a few characters. because there were too many. He is not without reason: the cast of the series has gone from five children and a couple of adults to an endless range of actors and actresses who repeat season after season… And new faces are still being added!

There are many people, each one with their plot and their particular circumstance, but ‘Stranger Things’ is so well scripted -no matter who weighs it- and the casting is so particular that it ensures that we do not forget any face or situation: the pieces on the chessboard are placed so firmly and cleverly What do you know, even if a group hasn’t appeared for a couple of episodes, who’s in it, what its plot is, and how important it is in the overall puzzle.

At the end of the previous season, several characters were moving out of Hawkins and most of us thought that the new installment would simply bring them together after a couple of episodes, but nothing could be further from the truth. every weft adds layers to the mystery and affects itbut much of the story takes place outside of town, including everything that has to do with Eleven.

You have rhythm and power

The first episodes of the season offer us a new face of Eleven different from what we have seen so far: stripped of her powers, He doesn’t know who he is or what he looks like in this world, and is cannon fodder to suffer bullying at school. The most separate plot from the others in these episodes falls on her, in which, once again, the Duffers do not fall into the much simpler “She has regained her powers after two episodes, everything is back to normal”: the tone of this season you have no need to rush thingsAnd you can see it.

Stranger Things 4

On several occasions, the characters comment ?before we had a superheroine, everything was easier?, and it is true: the adventures, the terror and the insecurity of the characters win whole now that she can’t help them like she used to. If the rest of the characters live in their particular ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’, Eleven is living in ‘Carrie’. And (this is not a spoiler) we already know how ‘Carrie’ ends.

After three seasons, ‘Stranger Things’ is already seen with the ability to solve things that were left in the pipeline since the pilot, and match them with what is happening now. Eleven’s past grows in importance, and the overall plot becomes much more nuanced with it. When other plots feel somewhat stagnant (Hopper’s, perhaps the most difficult for him to advance), the rest fit together in a precise way: this is the definitive puzzle, the Duffer’s opus magna.

monster mash

This is the most expensive series in Netflix history? And it shows. Fortunately, special effects, which could have fallen for the special flaws of SyFy movies in an age when CGI is scrutinized, are pristine. Not only in the movement and integration of the characters, but in their design and conception. From the birth of Vecna ??to the rejuvenation of some characters, ‘Stranger Things 4’ is a visual fantasy that presses the accelerator in his first episode and doesn’t let go until the end.

It is true that some chapters feel, if not filler, yes simple procedure: something has to happen to get to the important part, and until you get to that point, although it is not a tedious path, it can become somewhat flat compared to the rest. However, it is not the worst of the season: the arrival of a stoner character more typical of ‘Dude, where is my car?’ that ‘Stranger things’ is disconcerting and brings with it some jokes aimed at an audience that is not the one that watches the series and that break the rhythm and tone of a season that plays something else.

Eleven in Stranger Things

Fortunately, they are small anecdotes that do not overshadow the terrifying road of a season in which characters who until now had not had the opportunity to do so shine with their own light, such as Max (spectacular episode 4, perhaps the best of this batch). In these seven chapters, the series has taken an incredible and recognizable giant leap after staying in the “Yes, but no” of the previous season. The Duffers are aware that the end is just around the corner, and they want to celebrate it in style. Of course, yes.

too many characters

Millie Bobby Brown joked during this season’s presentation that It was about time the Duffers took out a few characters. because there were too many. He is not without reason: the cast of the series has gone from five children and a couple of adults to an endless range of actors and actresses who repeat season after season… And new faces are still being added!

There are many people, each one with their plot and their particular circumstance, but ‘Stranger Things’ is so well scripted -no matter who weighs it- and the casting is so particular that it ensures that we do not forget any face or situation: the pieces on the chessboard are placed so firmly and cleverly What do you know, even if a group hasn’t appeared for a couple of episodes, who’s in it, what its plot is, and how important it is in the overall puzzle.

At the end of the previous season, several characters were moving out of Hawkins and most of us thought that the new installment would simply bring them together after a couple of episodes, but nothing could be further from the truth. every weft adds layers to the mystery and affects itbut much of the story takes place outside of town, including everything that has to do with Eleven.

You have rhythm and power

The first episodes of the season offer us a new face of Eleven different from what we have seen so far: stripped of her powers, He doesn’t know who he is or what he looks like in this world, and is cannon fodder to suffer bullying at school. The most separate plot from the others in these episodes falls on her, in which, once again, the Duffers do not fall into the much simpler “She has regained her powers after two episodes, everything is back to normal”: the tone of this season you have no need to rush thingsAnd you can see it.

Stranger Things 4

On several occasions, the characters comment ?before we had a superheroine, everything was easier?, and it is true: the adventures, the terror and the insecurity of the characters win whole now that she can’t help them like she used to. If the rest of the characters live in their particular ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’, Eleven is living in ‘Carrie’. And (this is not a spoiler) we already know how ‘Carrie’ ends.

After three seasons, ‘Stranger Things’ is already seen with the ability to solve things that were left in the pipeline since the pilot, and match them with what is happening now. Eleven’s past grows in importance, and the overall plot becomes much more nuanced with it. When other plots feel somewhat stagnant (Hopper’s, perhaps the most difficult for him to advance), the rest fit together in a precise way: this is the definitive puzzle, the Duffer’s opus magna.

Halloween: the 21 best horror series you can watch on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon, Disney+ and Movistar Plus+

monster mash

This is the most expensive series in Netflix history? And it shows. Fortunately, special effects, which could have fallen for the special flaws of SyFy movies in an age when CGI is scrutinized, are pristine. Not only in the movement and integration of the characters, but in their design and conception. From the birth of Vecna ??to the rejuvenation of some characters, ‘Stranger Things 4’ is a visual fantasy that presses the accelerator in his first episode and doesn’t let go until the end.

It is true that some chapters feel, if not filler, yes simple procedure: something has to happen to get to the important part, and until you get to that point, although it is not a tedious path, it can become somewhat flat compared to the rest. However, it is not the worst of the season: the arrival of a stoner character more typical of ‘Dude, where is my car?’ that ‘Stranger things’ is disconcerting and brings with it some jokes aimed at an audience that is not the one that watches the series and that break the rhythm and tone of a season that plays something else.

Eleven in Stranger Things

Fortunately, they are small anecdotes that do not overshadow the terrifying road of a season in which characters who until now had not had the opportunity to do so shine with their own light, such as Max (spectacular episode 4, perhaps the best of this batch). In these seven chapters, the series has taken an incredible and recognizable giant leap after staying in the “Yes, but no” of the previous season. The Duffers are aware that the end is just around the corner, and they want to celebrate it in style. Of course, yes.

Can you get the feeling that a movie catches you older? And the desire to have seen her many years before? And the certainty that, if we had reached it when we were younger, it would have had a greater impact on us? She had always argued against it, with a fairly common argument: enthusiasm, emotion and the ability to surprise have nothing to do with age. However, a few days ago, a colleague, Joan Pons, asked me about ‘Everything at once everywhere’, which opens in Spain next Friday, and the first thing I told him is that I wish I had seen it when I was young, when I was 16 or 17 years old. It is not because it is a film aimed at a child or youth audience. Not because I think that the expectation around her, very well treated by critics and enthusiastically embraced by viewers, is disproportionate. Directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the couple behind the cult film ‘Swiss Army Man’ (2016). ‘Everything at once everywhere’ is extraordinary for many reasons. Although it conforms to the fashionable theme, the multiverses, and does not hide its references, it is a waste of ideas and originality. The action and fantasy are light years away from the digital vomiting of other recent entertainment products. It is a free proposal, at times unpredictable and without a sense of ridicule. Its protagonist, a true action heroine, is played by a 60-year-old actress: Michelle Yeohwhich is absolutely amazing. And its directors and screenwriters achieve something as difficult as preventing the runaway device of their film, chaotic, accelerated, excessive, from blocking the emotions of its story. Perhaps the latter is the most striking and moving part of ‘Everything at once everywhere’.

However, seeing her I couldn’t help feeling that I was late. I wished I had seen it when it didn’t even cross my mind that what I saw on the screen had already been done by others before. All this obviously has a melancholic part. But the reason for this column was not so much to talk about that nostalgia of a less savvy look as to value the films that have such an effect on us, which in reality are not that many. This effect is unusual because a very high percentage of the entertainment movies (and series) we watch belong to well-known franchises and respond to omnipresent mythologies. How can we yearn to arrive before something that has always been there? ‘Everything at once everywhere’ drinks from many places, it is even full of tributes. But the desire to surprise, entertain and excite prevails over all that. The directors are not satisfied with the feast of references, winks and complicity that sustain an important part of contemporary entertainment. In ‘Everything at once everywhere’ there is a constant search by the viewer, an urgent need to seduce him in unexpected ways, to restore his faith in the unpredictability of the story and the images. And that, unfortunately, is not so common. Hence that desire to have seen her when she was much younger and everything seemed new.

At the top of the “best-sellers” category in France, the writer publishes a new creation, 1991which marks the return of Franck Sharko, his favorite character.

First some figures: Franck Thilliez has published twenty novels since 2002. Today, at 47, he is at the top of the ?best-sellers? category in France. In the ranking of the best sellers of 2020 published by Le Figaro-GfK, it occupied 4th place with 740,000 copies sold. A colossal success that has not changed this trained engineer who fell into the pot of thrillers after the discovery, in 1991, of Jonathan Demme’s film, Thesilenceofthelambs , sumptuous adaptation of the novel by Thomas Harris. Thilliez is this discreet person who continues on his way, closely followed by Bernard Minier, both heirs of the precursor Jean-Christophe Grangé without whom the French thriller would not exist.

In 2020, Thilliez published the excellent Twice upon a time. And here he is already back with 1991, his latest creation. Not the least exciting since it is the return of Franck Sharko, his favorite character, the one he launched in Hell train for Red Angel in 2004, novel followed by ten others. At the start of the series, the policeman is in his early forties, and if the author plays the game of aging, like Michael Connelly with Harry Bosch, the time for retirement, even nursing home, is approaching… The solution for a novelist faced with this problem is to imagine new characters (Mickey Haller and Renée Ballard for Connelly) or to stage their hero in an earlier era.

pervert treasure hunt

This is the path that Thilliez has chosen in 1991. At that time, his cop was a rookie who came from the North and landed at the mythical 36, quai des Orfèvres. In addition to the facelift performed on his character, Thilliez also revisits a time when technology was not yet there. Nothing of what makes the daily life of current police series – DNA research, tracing of laptops, digitization of archives, dissemination of information on social networks and streaming channels, etc. – existed then. We are no longer quite in the days of the cops at La Borniche, but not far off.

This slowness of yesteryear inspired Franck Thilliez, who stages the young Sharko and his team confronted with two cases: that, still not resolved, of the ?Disappeared from southern Paris?, three women kidnapped and killed with knives. And another, in which a perverted treasure hunt leads to a trailer where the police find the body of a woman in a state of decomposition. The corpse bears numerous burns. The face is hidden under a paper bag. Near the bed, books and 22 photos representing young, naked children. A vast investigation begins to apprehend the author of this abomination.

Fascinated by serial killers, the novelist could not have ignored the fact that in the early 1990s there was a certain Guy Georges, rapist and murderer. From the squats of Goutte-d’Or to Brittany, from Haitian rites to the evocation of the exploits of the magician Houdini, Franck Thilliez once again rolls out the carpet of his imagination to embark us on an incredible story. Where does he get all this, we wonder once again? Only certainty: 1991 is still a success, a high-flying vintage thriller. Master hat!

Ihe has been an actor for almost thirty years but the world only opened their eyes to him in 2021 with Squid Game. His passport to fame. Since the planetary ramdam of the gore and playful Netflix series, Korean Lee Jung-jae no longer has to worry about tomorrows without a role. At 48, he has seen his popularity explode not only in South Korea but also in the 190 territories where the streaming giant broadcasts the soap opera created by his compatriot Hwang Dong-hyeok.

In Squid Game, Lee Jung-jae embodies this single, broke father who accepts, like 455 other left-behinds, to participate on a remote island in a tournament of deadly games in exchange for an astronomical sum for the winner. The second season is being written, but it was not for the promotion of the fictional phenomenon that Lee flew to the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

The artist with many hats ? including that of a restaurant and real estate entrepreneur in Korea (!) ? inaugurated a career as a director with Hunt. An excellent spy thriller screened on the Croisette in a parallel section and which, in France, will soon be distributed by The Jokers under a model that remains to be determined (theater? video? streaming?? The matter is not settled ). We saw Hunt and the result has us rather electrified.

A labyrinthine scenario

The story of a North Korean mole hunt within the Seoul Secret Service, led by two rival agents in a country plagued by tensions in the early 1980s, the film reveals a director who is damn good at drawing out shootings. . Between Heat (all things considered!) and Infernal Affairs, the manhunt orchestrated by Lee Jung-jae, who has also granted himself one of the two main roles, impresses with his mastery of the frame and his cutting? but sins by a labyrinthine scenario to stick you a migraine of horse. Especially in the original Korean version, where literally every subtitle counts so as not to lose the thread: a blink of an eye at the wrong time and hello bewilderment! Some of the festival-goers who had the bad idea to see Hunt during its first screening, in a midnight session, felt the weight of their eyelids and the drunken evenings of the previous day pass?

Gun ballets a la John Woo

Rooted in the bloody turmoil that preceded the democratic transition in South Korea, from 1988, the framework of Hunt takes place under the last fires of a US-backed anti-Communist military dictatorship. A few introductory cards fortunately inform the uninitiated viewer about the geopolitics in place: in view of the intertwining of games of dupes between the two Koreas and the United States or even between the KCIA (the South -Korean, equivalent of the CIA or our DGSE) and the local military police, these few pieces of information in the preamble are welcome?

Nevertheless: despite the mashed peas awaiting the distracted spectators, Hunt is distinguished by a striking style, many ballets of guns à la John Woo and we would not be surprised if Hollywood offers, one day, a more accessible remake for the average person. Nor that its director yields to the Californian sirens if they knock on his door: “Of course, it would be a dream experience for me, but I will only go to work there for projects based above all on the story and the characters”, promises Lee Jung-jae, via an interpreter doing the translation from Korean to English.

READ ALSO“Squid Game”: behind the scenes of a global obsession

Elegant as a lord in his gray white shirt suit, the actor/director/businessman was 13 years old during the student demonstrations repressed by the power in place in the mid-1980s. A harsh traumatic period for the Korean generation X (which had marked just as much Bong-Joon ho, the director ofOkja and Parasite) and of which Lee has not forgotten any detail: ?The streets crowded with demonstrators, the charges of the police, the tear gas? I wanted to show this story. And also understand why Koreans can be so conflicted with each other for so long. Each of the two camps is convinced that its beliefs are more legitimate than the other and, in this rivalry, the control of information and propaganda are crucial. Five years ago, I started thinking about this spy thriller about the use of disinformation for strategic purposes. In the age of fake news in 2022, it’s still relevant. »

Season 2 of ?Squid Game? will be an even stronger dramaturgical rollercoaster than Season 1!Lee Jung-jae

After writing his script, Lee Jung-jae says he tried to have it directed by others and finally threw himself into the water behind the camera, without even hiring the services of a second-team director for the many action scenes: “I saw a lot of films of the genre, Western and Korean, but I still tried to find my own style, a new concept for shootings, which I wanted to be both brief and hard-hitting” , completes our interlocutor, whose life and career have been turned upside down by Squid Game. ?I have always worked, but, yes, there is a before and an after Squid Game. Besides, I never fully understood the controversy surrounding the fact that children reproduce the games seen in the series during recess. I played all those games myself when I was their age! Thanks to this success, I receive proposals every day and I prepare projects for Korea but also for abroad. I am writing two more scripts that I would like to make. »

We won’t really know more, except that Lee Jung-jae intends to continue shooting action scenes. And the sequel to Squid Game in all of that ? “Hwang Dong-hyeok is still writing it, filming will start next fall for a 2023 broadcast. Hwang told me it was going to be a much stronger dramaturgical rollercoaster than Season 1.” Tintin for our scoop hunt, but all this is said with such kindness and such a disarming smile that we will be satisfied with it! In the meantime, track Hunt upon its release, announced for the end of August on French screens: a revelation of action cinema has just emerged with Lee Jung-jae.

SGLT2 inhibition attenuates arterial dysfunction and decreases vascular F-actin content and expression of proteins associated with oxidative stress in aged mice. GeroScience, 2022; DOI: 10.1007/s11357-022-00563-x

Researchers initially examined the role aging plays in human blood vessel function and stiffness. Then they evaluated how treatment with the sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor empagliflozin (Empa) improved blood vessel function and reduced arterial stiffness in aged male mice.

?Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death in older adults in the U.S.,? said Camila Manrique-Acevedo, MD, associate professor of medicine. ?Weight loss, physical activity, antihypertensive therapy and lipid-lowering drugs have shown variable effectiveness at improving blood vessel function and reducing arterial stiffness. But additional approaches are needed to improve vascular health in older adults.?

The study first compared blood vessel function and stiffness in 18 healthy human patients ? average age of 25 ? with 18 patients who averaged 61 years old. They found the older patients had impaired endothelial function and increased aortic stiffness when compared to the younger patients.

?Our findings in young and older adults confirm previous clinical data demonstrating the impact of aging on blood vessel function and arterial stiffness,? Manrique-Acevedo said. ?Importantly, we were able to replicate this data in a rodent model.?

In order to investigate the effects of Empa on vascular aging, 72-week-old male mice were divided into two groups. Twenty-nine were fed for six weeks with a diet enriched with Empa, while the other half were given standard food. After analyzing both groups six weeks later, researchers discovered the mice treated with Empa experienced improved blood vessel function, reduced arterial stiffness and other vascular benefits.

?To our knowledge, this is the first study to examine the potential role of SGLT2 inhibition in reversing vascular aging,? Manrique-Acevedo said. ?And our findings highlight the need for further clinical investigations to determine the potential role of SGLT2 inhibition as a therapeutic tool to delay or reverse vascular aging in humans.?

The entire MU research team consisted of Jaume Padilla, PhD, associate professor of nutrition and exercise physiology and co-corresponding author of this work; Luis Martinez-Lemus, DVM, PhD, professor of medical pharmacology and physiology, and R. Scott Rector, PhD, associate professor of nutrition. It also included postdoctoral fellows Rogerio Soares, PhD, Francisco Ramirez-Perez, PhD, Thaysa Ghiarone, PhD, and Francisco Cabral-Amador, PhD; research specialist Mariana Morales Quinones; assistant research professors Christopher Foote, PhD, and Neekun Sharma, PhD; and graduate students James A.

Ewan McGregor ha confesado varias veces que, desde que asumió el papel de Obi-Wan Kenobi, no puede ver una puerta que se abra y se cierre con un detector de movimiento. Antes de entrar a un supermercado, o a una tienda con ese mecanismo, cierra un poco los ojos, levanta la mano derecha y se imagina en la piel del legendario guerrero jedi, antes de pararse al frente y de que las puertas se abran como por arte de magia.

La Fuerza revive en su organismo. Las mejores escenas de la saga vuelven a su memoria; lo ha hecho para sí mismo, sin que nadie lo vea en la entrada de un drugstore o de un 7-Eleven, pero en algunas oportunidades se ha encontrado con un chico de la caja registradora con la boca abierta y los ojos desorbitados por la sorpresa: ¡Dios mío, acaba de llegar Obi-Wan Kenobi!

(Lea también: El actor Ray Liotta muere a los 67 años, famoso por ‘Buenos muchachos’).

Ahora -una vez más- no solo se abrirán las puertas de los supermercados. Mc Gregor recuperará sus poderes en la galaxia y no tendrá que conformarse con las vulgares puertas de vidrio de la Tierra. Obi-Wan Kenobi, uno de los personajes más carismáticos del universo creado por George Lucas, regresa con su sable láser y su capucha raída de monje rebelde.

El universo de Star Wars regresa para el jubilo de millones de fans en todo el mundo en la nueva serie que se estrena este viernes 27 de mayo en la plataforma de streaming Disney Plus, bajo la dirección de la cineasta Deborah Chow, que entre otras cosas tuvo entre manos algunos capítulos de series como Mr. Robot y del primer éxito del universo extendido de Star Wars: The Mandalorian.

La nueva serie ‘Obi- Wan Kenobi’ estrenará sus dos primeros episodios el 27 de mayo.

-¡Hello There!

McGregor no responde con otro ?Hello There? en el video de Zoom en el que entré para charlar en vivo y en directo, por míseros 4 minutos, con el hombre que interpreta al jedi que llevó a niveles inesperados de la fuerza a Luke Skywalker y dejó de un espadazo sin piernas a su papá: Anakin Skywalker. Un limpio espadazo láser que, entre otras cosas, le cercenó un brazo y lo dejó en un estado de invalidez que solo pudieron reparar con una armadura negra: el inconfundible traje de Darth Vader, el mejor malvado del cine conocido.

?Hello There? fue el saludo que impuso el actor Alec Guinnesss en su interpretación de Obi-Wan en la primera trilogía. McGregor lo adoptó para saludar a los fans cuando retomó el personaje de la saga interestelar a comienzos de siglo y, por supuesto, se volvió parte de su vida.

El actor que odió a Obi- Wan 

McGregor -el adorable yonqui de Trainspotting- no creía que nuevamente tendría una espada láser en las manos. Los episodios I, II y III no fueron recibidos con un amor especial por los fans. George Lucas probó nuevas tecnologías en esa época y la mayoría de batallas y diálogos fueron en solitarios fondos verdes que luego se poblaban de robots, seres de otras galaxias y efectos especiales.

Su personaje -en medio de todo- sobrevivió al odio sin freno contra esa espantosa criatura llamada Jar Jar Binks -un personaje digital que es considerado el peor de la saga- y algunas de sus peleas se han convertido verdaderos clásicos, sobre todo el duelo en el que deja tirado en la lava, sin piernas ni brazo al pobre Anakin (el actor canadiense Hayden Christensen que, entre otras cosas, será nuevamente el antagonista). La serie de seis capitulos, sin duda, es una genial oportunidad para McGregor (Perth, Escocia, 1971) de consolidarse como un ícono definitivo del universo de Star Wars.

Obi-Wan Kenobi- actor Alec Guinness

Obi-Wan Kenobi le dio una masiva popularidad al oscarizado Alec Guinness. El actor llegó a odiar su interpretación en ?Star Wars?.

Su antecesor lo logró. Y fue una sorpresa para él. Alec Guinness fue uno de los actores británicos más grandes de la historia del cine. Participó en clásicos indiscutibles como Lawrence de Arabia (1962), La caída del imperio romano (1964) y Dr. Zhivago (1969). Obtuvo un Óscar por su trabajo en El puente sobre el río Kwai (1958). Y, antes de que la Fuerza lo succionara en 1977, punto de partida del universo de Star Wars, en 1976 había estrenado Murder by Death, junto a dos pesos pesados: Peter Falk y Peter Sellers, en una mezcla deliciosa de suspenso y humor inteligente.

George Lucas adoraba el trabajo del intérprete británico y confiaba en la solidez y presencia del actor para un papel de vital importancia en su aventura galáctica. Cuando recibió la propuesta, Guinness no se sintió particularmente impactado por el despliegue de naves espaciales y caballeros jedi, pero le parecía interesante moverse por otros universos de la actuación. Además, ni él ni nadie, lograron predecir el fenómeno en que se iba a convertir Star Wars: espisodio IV, una nueva esperanza.

(Consulte: ‘Stranger Things’: se estrena la primera parte de la cuarta temporada).

Para arrastrarlo a las interminables arenas de Tatooine, el planeta donde Obi-Wan se encuentra por primera vez con Luke Skywalker, George Lucas le ofreció un 2,25 por ciento de las ganancias de las película y consiguió que firmara un contrato para aparecer en otras dos. La estrella de clásicos ?serios? del cine aceptó sin imaginar lo que pasaría después.

Star Wars: a New Hope fue un fenómeno de taquilla y algo más que una película de naves, espadas luminosas y tiranías interestelares, se convirtió en una religión que hoy siguen abrazando a millones de creyentes en todo el mundo. Fue una locura y al original Obi-Wan Kenobi le habría gustado escapar a un planeta solitario ante tanta exposición. Alec Guinness comenzó a sentir el amor incondicional de los fanáticos de Star Wars y eso lo sobrepasó.

Afiche de la serie sobre Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Su actuación fue impecable, pero muchas veces dejó en claro que la historia le parecía muy sencilla. No se sentía cómodo con las reacciones desaforadas de cariño y entrega de la audiencia y veía con recelo cómo la cascada de éxito crecía como un tsunami.

Cuando la gente lo reconocía en la calle, no daban con su nombre, pero gritaban ¡Obi-Wan! y, con el paso del tiempo, se vio rodeado de gritos de histeria más sonoros que los aplausos que recibía después de un gran performance en el teatro o de un reconocimiento de la crítica frente a cualquier otra película.

?¡Hello There!, ¡Hello There!?. Se convirtió en el estribillo de los fans para recibirlo en todas partes. Guinness había firmado el contrato para dos películas más: El imperio contraataca y El retorno del Jedi. Y fueron igual de exitosas. El universo de Star Wars se consolidó como una marca planetaria. Ya no le gritaban ¡Yegraf!, por su personaje en El doctor Zhivago, ni se arrodillaban por ser el príncipe Faisal de Lawrence de Arabia; habían pasado al olvido las criticas por haber interpretado al líder de los nazis en Hitler: los últimos diez días. Era Obi-Wan y nada más.

(No deje de leer: Ray Liotta, ¿quién era y cuáles fueron sus mejores películas?).

Guinness comenzó a desesperarse; luego de regresar de un viaje, un niño se le acercó y le pidió un autógrafo y el actor decidió estampar su firma con una condición devastadora: que nunca más volviera a ver Star Wars. El niño no aguantó semejante respuesta y se puso a llorar. En algún momento, al igual que Harrison Ford frente a su mercenario Han Solo, el único deseo que tenía era que su personaje se muriera de una vez por todas. Pero el titular de su propia muerte, en el año 2000, cuando tenía 86 años, no podía ser otro: ?que la fuerza te acompañe?.

Trabajó en 40 películas y en 70 obras de teatro, le dieron en 1980 un Óscar por toda su carrera, pero pasó a la historia del cine como Obi-Wan Kenobi. La Fuerza, sin duda, no es algo con lo que se pueda jugar a la ligera.

Ewan McGregor: creando un nuevo Obi-Wan

-¿Por qué es tan importante Obi-Wan Kenobi?
?

McGregor sonríe, mira hacia arriba y parece pedir una respuesta divina o el sonido de la voz quejumbrosa de Yoda. La respuesta y la sabiduría con la particular sintaxis de la criatura verde nunca llega, o tal vez sí: la respuesta misma debes tú encontrar. McGregor lanza un resoplido y, finalmente, ve la luz: el propio Guinness.

-En los años setenta Alec Guinness era una especie de sabio espiritual, alguien mítico o, como en los cuentos de hadas, el gran hechicero. Pero ahora vamos en una dirección diferente. Comenzamos la historia cuando él no es el hombre del que todos hablan o al jedi al que deben seguir. Vive escondiéndose y no es un jedi tan convencido. Ha perdido un poco la fe.

En uno de los adelantos se explora la tensión entre Obi-Wan Kenobi y la familia adoptiva de Luke Skywalker. El tío Owen no ve con buenos ojos a ese guerrero desgastado que esconde una espada láser y es buscado en todo el Imperio para el exterminio final de los jedi.

-Hay más en la vida que tu granja, Owen. Necesita ver que hay toda una galaxia ahí afuera -dice Kenobi.

-Te pido que nos dejes en paz, Ben. Lo digo en serio -responde el tío.
Luego, en otro momento, el maestro dice:
-Él es mi responsabilidad, Owen.

-Bueno, yo soy su tío.

-Hemos hablado de esto. Cuando llegue el momento hay que entrenarlo.

-¿Como entrenaste a su padre?

(Antes de irse: Todos siguen amando a Lucille Ball).

El guardián de la Fuerza

Obi-Wan Kenobi carga con el fracaso; descubrió en un planeta perdido a Anakin Skywalker en el Episodio I y convenció al Consejo Jedi de que era ?El elegido?. Yoda siempre tuvo dudas porque sentía la presencia del lado oscuro, pero la cantidad de midiclorianos (la medida de unidad de la Fuerza) en el cuerpo de Anakin finalmente lo convenció. Obi-Wan se convirtió en su maestro. Y todos saben cómo termina todo: Anakin, dentro de la armadura de Darth Vader, finaliza su destino como el esclavo asesino del emperador, el viejo y asqueroso senador Palpatine. Luke y Leia, los hijos de Anakin y Padmé Amidala (en una interpretación majestuosa de Natalie Portman), tienen que vivir escondidos, separados y fuera de sus garras.

Ewan McGregor desempolvó las películas clásicas y se reencontró con la interpretación de Alec Guinness y ese halo invisible de respeto, sabiduría y una tierna pátina de ternura paternal que, como una avalancha invisible, cayó encima del alma de un joven Luke que tenía que asumir el destino manifiesto de ser un héroe. Una idea que probablemente George Lucas tomó de la obra El viaje del héroe, de Joseph Campbell, en la que el protagonista de su historia ve cómo la burbuja en la que vive se hace añicos y tiene que reinventarse a través de una serie de aventuras, de la mano de un mentor, un guía, un ser experimentado? un padre.

No en vano, en Star Wars: A New Hope, Luke se quiebra de dolor ante la muerte de Obi-Wan, con mayor vehemencia y tristeza que cuando encuentra a sus tíos incinerados en Tatooine. ?Ya no hay nada que me retenga en este lugar?, dice el joven Skywalker, interpretado por Mark Hamill. Y hace lo que tiene que hacer: empuñar la espada láser bajo las órdenes de su maestro.

Escena de la nueva serie ‘Obi- Wan Kenobi’.

Obi-Wan Kenobi tiene algo del Gandalf de El señor de los anillos y, sobre todo, del mago Merlín en la leyenda del rey Arturo, el hechicero de melena blanca y una barba hasta el pecho, que es imprescindible en el encuentro del rey con la espada Excálibur, por su lado, el experimentado jedi, le revela los secretos del sable de luz a Luke, pero luego lo engaña con una historia que luego tendrá tintes shakesperianos. En un primer momento le dice que su padre fue asesinado por Darh Vader, para que más tarde, el atormentado Luke, tenga que enterarse de que en realidad Darth Vader es su padre en uno de los diálogos más recordados y citados de la saga.

Este viernes 27 de mayo, con el estreno de los dos primeros episodios de la serie Obi-Wan Kenobi, parte de una franquicia que hasta la fecha ha recaudado 10.300 millones de dólares, Ewan Mcgregor reconoce estar emocionado y orgulloso por contar un nuevo capítulo de la saga y que tenga el nombre del personaje más respetado de ese universo cinematográfico.

-Siempre va a ser diferente hacer algo relacionado con Star Wars, porque eso implica una reacción masiva y una audiencia inimaginable. No sé cómo será la respuesta de los seguidores, pero tengo un buen presentimiento frente a lo que hicimos y sé que esto era algo que estaban pidiendo desde hace muchos años los que aman a Star Wars? reencontrarse con Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Y hace lo que tiene que hacer: empuñar la espada láser bajo las órdenes de su maestro.

Escena de la nueva serie ‘Obi- Wan Kenobi’.

Obi-Wan Kenobi tiene algo del Gandalf de El señor de los anillos y, sobre todo, del mago Merlín en la leyenda del rey Arturo, el hechicero de melena blanca y una barba hasta el pecho, que es imprescindible en el encuentro del rey con la espada Excálibur, por su lado, el experimentado jedi, le revela los secretos del sable de luz a Luke, pero luego lo engaña con una historia que luego tendrá tintes shakesperianos. En un primer momento le dice que su padre fue asesinado por Darh Vader, para que más tarde, el atormentado Luke, tenga que enterarse de que en realidad Darth Vader es su padre en uno de los diálogos más recordados y citados de la saga.

Este viernes 27 de mayo, con el estreno de los dos primeros episodios de la serie Obi-Wan Kenobi, parte de una franquicia que hasta la fecha ha recaudado 10.300 millones de dólares, Ewan Mcgregor reconoce estar emocionado y orgulloso por contar un nuevo capítulo de la saga y que tenga el nombre del personaje más respetado de ese universo cinematográfico.

-Siempre va a ser diferente hacer algo relacionado con Star Wars, porque eso implica una reacción masiva y una audiencia inimaginable. No sé cómo será la respuesta de los seguidores, pero tengo un buen presentimiento frente a lo que hicimos y sé que esto era algo que estaban pidiendo desde hace muchos años los que aman a Star Wars? reencontrarse con Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Last day of competition on the Croisette after the opening of this anniversary edition of the Festival ten days ago now. Once again, we do not see the time passing.

Before honoring the last two films of the Official Selection in the running for the Palme d’Or, which will be awarded tomorrow during the closing ceremony, it is in the last parallel section of the Festival ? In some perspective ? to present its prizes during its own ceremony which will take place at the end of the day.

Just to be patient before that, festival-goers will be able to attend the last two Cannes meetings (and not the least!) by going to meet the Italian director Alice Rohrwacher (a Grand Prize and a Screenplay Prize) and the Spanish actor Javier Bardem (Prize of male interpretation in 2010 for Biutiful ofAlejandro González Iñarritu).

This last day dedicated to the competition will also be an opportunity to discover out of competition the latest film by Nicolas Bedos. say that the Festival appreciates it is an understatement since he closed it last year with OSS 117: Red alert in black Africa. This year, the French director returns with a comedy served by Pierre Niney, Marine Vacth, François Cluzet and Isabelle Adjani (just excuse!). Masquerade ? that’s the title ? tells the story of an ex-dancer, whose career is now broken, who will meet a young scammer who, very quickly, will drag him into her schemes.

I see the impatience growing in your eyes, so let’s move on now to the last two films of the Official Selection.

The United States on one side, with the director Kelly Reichard who is taking his first steps in the Official Selection after coming in 2019 to the section In some perspective. His film Showing-up is a dive into the world of art through the daily life of an artist ? interpreted by michelle williams ? who is preparing for the opening of his exhibition.

On the other side of the Atlantic, France, with the fourth and last French entry of this 75th edition. Winner of the Caméra d’Or in 2017 for her film Young lady presented to Certain Regard, Leonor Serraille also hitting the red carpet for the first time Official Selection with A little brother. His film tells the story of a family of Ivorian origin who came to settle in France at the end of the 80s and retraces their journey over thirty years, up to the present day.

Finally, if the Cannes film festival celebrates its seventy-five years this year, it has decided to honor another anniversary: ??that of the seventy years of the masterpiece Singin’ in the Rain of Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, by offering it in a restored 4K version! Lovers of musicals and tap dancing are likely to leave the Croisette humming the lively tunes of this magnificent film on their lips, and above all with stars in their eyes.

Why did you come back to the Star Wars universe?

Ewan McGregor: “For almost 20 years, every interview I did ended with the same questions, ‘Will there be a new Trainspotting? Are you going to reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi?’ There was a new Trainspotting, and for Obi-Wan Kenobi? For a long time, my answer was “no”.

And then as I got older, I found that the Star Wars movies where I played Obi-Wan Kenobi became more and more popular. In fact, it was the kids of the early 2000s who genuinely enjoyed the movies, and growing up expressed their tastes on social media. We forget it, but 20 years before, only the reviews of the press were visible and they were bad at the time. This generation of fans changed my outlook on movies and on Star Wars. That’s why lately, I no longer said “no” but “maybe”.

When we met with Disney and Lucasfilms, the idea of ??a series quickly appeared, but if it had to be done, let it be with a good story. Kenobi’s script had to be rewritten, but in the end, I think director Deborah Chow figured out what it took to make it good. »

In 20 years, in addition to your view of the saga, film technology has also evolved…

Ewan McGregor: ?That’s also one of the things I’ve reassessed over time. With the 2000s trilogy, George Lucas experimented with many technologies, including digital cameras. It was pioneering work. But for me, that meant that I was shooting in front of green or blue screens, in front of a character embodied by a tennis ball. It was hard. Now the technology is more immersive. We now have these LED screens that project the decor. When we are in the desert, we are in the desert. Same for space. For an actor, it’s much easier to get involved. »

Kenobi also marks the reunion with Hayden Christensen, alias Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader. How did it happen ?

Ewan McGregor: ?A great happiness. We were very close when we made the original films. For episode II, we were in Sydney, each far from our homes, so we spent a lot of time together. And then Hayden moved back to Canada, I moved to the United States. Our ties have loosened. That’s why getting back together was a real pleasure. »





Kenobi, what is it?

Kenobi is the new series from the Star Wars universe to arrive this Friday, June 27 on Disney + with two episodes (the other four will be broadcast at the rate of one episode per week each Wednesday).

The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events recounted in “Revenge of the Sith”, when Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) found himself faced with his greatest defeat: the fall and corruption of his best friend and apprentice. Jedi, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), who deliberately chose the dark side of the Force in order to become the evil Darth Vader.

?A pleasure to see fans working together?

Kenobi isn’t just actors returning to the camera, it’s also new characters, especially on the villain side. Actress Moses Ingram (Le Jeu de la Dame, The Tragedy of Macbeth by Joel Coen) embodies Reva, an inquisitor responsible for eradicating the Jedi from the galaxy.

For her, being part of Star Wars was something she had never imagined: ?I was so surprised. I saw the Star Wars movies, especially “Revenge of the Sith”. But being part of it is so crazy because in fact, I had never projected myself into it. » Until Kenobi.

Moses Ingram had a lot of fun working on the series. ?What struck me the most was seeing that Star Wars is made by fans, by people who came to the world of cinema because they fell in love with this universe. And behind the scenes, there is a kind of desire from the technical teams to do well, to be worthy of the films of their childhoods. Seeing these fans working together was a pleasure. »
