    The Birth Chart of Nikola Tesla

    Nikola Tesla was born at the stroke of midnight during an electrical storm on the 10th of July 1856. In his youth, his father reportedly taught him to recite long passages of text and the pair frequently played a game of trying to read the others mind. His mother made tapestries and invented her own mechanisms like spinning wheels to help her craft intricate designs.

    Rahul Kohli Is NOT Playing Ezra Bridger In 'The Mandalorian'

    Arguably, the best thing about Star Wars is the fans. There are long term fans and new generation fans. People grew up with Star Wars and became obsessed or actually fulfilled their dreams by working on one of the Star Wars projects. Besides that, Star Wars has also had a huge influence on many things. For example, early on, it influenced Fox to make 1979’s Alien. Ridley Scott actually approached Fox before the original Star Wars came out, but the idea was shot dow at down at the time. It was not until the success of Star Wars in 1977 that they felt more open to doing a space movie like Alien.

    Enchantment

    The sun beamed through the windows heating the house to the perfect temperature. Making it that much harder to leave my sanctuary to brave the cold world outside. Slipping on my toffy coloured trench coat, stuffing mittens in the pockets just in case, I stepped through the threshold of the door. The cool air hit me like a slap in the face. The crunch of fallen leaves echoed with each step I took. Something was comforting in the change of seasons. Especially when fall was poking its head around the corner.

    The CLOUD was created to explore how our sense of taste and smell interact with each other to determine how we perceive flavour. The team observed that traditionally we only consume foods in two phases; solids and liquids. We pushed to engineer a way to break this constraint, and theorized what if we could enjoy our favourite dishes through another medium.

Do you think about a time when you were out late in the dead of night and you saw a flash of light, wondered what it was only to realize a moment later that what you saw wasn’t a UFO – it had been just the lights of a plane that was beginning its descent. do you think about movies, or little green men, cartoons, or do you just turn away shaking your head?

    The Cult Of The Heavens' Gate

    In 1997, the abnormally bright Hale - Bopp comet flared up a spectacular scenery of light in the night sky. On one extreme, its appearance frightened the astronomers whereas on the other, it brought with itself the most unanticipated misery to the families, a mass suicide tied with an extraterrestrial cosmic belief. It was a cult called ‘The Heavens’ Gate’ that had a firm faith that the Earth would be recycled (rejuvenated, wiped clean, born again) before the year 2027 and the only probability for the survival of their consciousness was to willfully leave their human bodies or as they called it, ‘vehicles’ at an appointed time.

    It was unusually cold for the season, it seemed that the leaves had changed from green to orange overnight and we went from cicadas in the trees to wind howling outside of my windows in just a few weeks. The steam from my tea was dancing in the sunlight with both of my hands wrapped around my oversized mug to hopefully help take the chill out of my bones a little quicker. I looked to Emery stretched out on the back of my sofa his paws seemingly reaching for something I could not see. Emery is an orange tabby I had found digging through my trash a few years ago, long gone are his days of scrounging for food as he must be one of the fattest cats I know. His eyes opened as I went to scratch his belly his head perking up.

    The Exodus

    Contemporary Migration is a highly complex phenomenon that is shaped by a convoluted set of factors. It has existed for centuries and has become a part of mankind’s shared history. Both the origins and the reverberations of migration are multifaceted and tangled, taking numerous forms from voluntary to forcible. The decision to migrate, be it on international or internal levels, tends to be heavily influenced by many circumstances such as economic conditions, employment or development opportunities, poverty, hunger, conflicts, environmental threats, or climate shocks. Although the list is not fully exhaustive, it gives a clear idea of how diversified the migration drivers can be.

    My breath catches in my throat and tears run down my cheeks. I can barely breath with all the smoke surrounding me. Last time I felt like this was when I sold my soul to the devil himself. I can only imagine that he’s calling in on that debt now. I really thought I had a little bit longer to enjoy my spoils. Sure, my soul was no longer my own, but I had a great life right now: a nice cushy job, a fantastic wife, a two kids. I really wanted to see them grow up at the very least, but if it’s time for Satan to claim me then I can’t really argue with him.

    Only the feverish night sky bore witness to the arrival of the visitor as he descended from the artist palette sky, as if standing in a glass elevator, and landed in a field. A cow mooed softly nearby. The visitor regarded the creature with only mild interest before setting off towards the stone wall that separated the field from the village further down the single-track road, a briefcase-like hold-all in his right hand.

    In this chapter of ‘the filmmaker’s guide’ we’re actually going to be learning about literature and film together. I understand that many of you are sitting in university during difficult times and finding it increasingly hard to study and I understand that many of you who are not at university or not planning on it are possibly stuck of what to do, need a break or even need to catch up on learning film before you get to the next level. This guide will be brief but will also contain: new vocabulary, concepts and theories, films to watch and we will be exploring something taboo until now in the ‘filmmaker’s guide’ - academia (abyss opens). Each article will explore a different concept of film, philosophy, literature or bibliography/filmography etc. in order to give you something new to learn each time we see each other. You can use some of the words amongst family and friends to sound clever or you can get back to me (email in bio) and tell me how you’re doing.

Their real physical bodies lay submerged unconscious within a capsule filled with nutrient rich fluid while their nervous systems are plugged into a complex AI computer simulation called The Matrix. The simulation feeds their nervous systems with all that is needed for them to believe they are in the real world, living real lives. The premise of the plot is realistic as we indeed create our reality based on stimuli interpreted by our nervous system¹.

    Technology - For the Better?

    Each consecutive generation gets to experience the newest advances in technology. In the 1950s it was the television which began to be affordable for the average family. In the 1990s cell phones were beginning to be made accessible to the general public. Now in the 21st century, the iPod, iPhone, iPad, Smart Phone and texting are all available in full force. Technological advances seem as if they are only increasing at a more rapid pace every successive year. With all the upgrades and changes in the ever-present technological movement, there is cause for concern, even while celebrating the march of progress. Society has always been optimistic, excited, thrilled even, to experience the next big advance, which will make life so much easier. Though there have been great discoveries made through technology, there are always subtle repercussions that may be found to be fatal further down the road. Technology has transported us into the Age of Information, but ironically it seems as if technology yields the power to generate a lazier, divisive, impersonal, and more impatient society.
