Ai Weiwei’s Human Flow: “Truth is Always Unbearable”

“The film never can tell the truth, the truth is always unbearable.” — Ai Weiwei. My review: “Many words like ‘humanitarian crisis’ or ‘refugees’ conceal great human tragedies; the news channels remind us daily that despair is at our doors but everything remains abstract – overall we do not know. With the type of fearlessness that landed him in jail, the internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist, Ai WeiWei, insists though, as he often does, that we face reality, however disturbing it may be.
As someone whose family was exiled within China – like Tarkovsky, his father was a famous poet – Ai knows his topic well. But he is aware that the crisis is global – the result: a monument of a film, 23 countries in 140 minutes (out of 900 hours of footage) […]

THE SCHOOL OF NO MEDIA

On January 1st, World-Wide Wishful Thinking Day, the Grand Opening of the School of No Media! Excerpts from the front-page: “We live as if tomorrow did not exist, ignoring the imminent oblivion that awaits us all… but it does not stop there. The fact that experience is not transmissible compounds all of our mistakes, and our planet steadily falls apart. Full of wishful thinking, we want to believe… but nothing is a surprise anymore. What we know strangles us: reality is off limits and immediacy has gone. Our universe is built up to the extent that alienation, separation, isolation – and for some of us, exile – have become the very fabric of our existence, the only turf we inhabit.
Both centrality and normalcy as a whole are two of our major hoaxes, but again it goes further: like some kind of tautological monstrosity, we are so full of ourselves, we have become the victims of our own centrality” […]

Posted by on Oct 26, 2015 in Future Tech, Health, Now |

Pre-Order Price Ends October 31: $49 if you buy two or more, $59 for one – the pre-order price for a few more days. Later the price will be $79. — Yes, I DID buy into this activity tracker. With its 3D tracking and its feedback information, I wanted to be able to track my strokes in swimming, and get live feedback during cycling. At this point no other activity tracker is able to provide this type of data – and it is much cheaper than other decent tracker. […]

Effective Ovarian Cancer Treatment

Posted by on Aug 3, 2015 in Death, Health, Now, Sci/Nat, Women |

To my friend, Judith Doneson: “This year, 21,290 new cases of ovarian cancer are expected in the United States, and 14,180 deaths… The study confirmed earlier findings that IP treatment helps women live longer. Among women who had IP treatment, 81 percent were still alive three years later, compared with 71 percent in women who had only intravenous chemotherapy. The findings are based on the records of about 500 women…. the cumulative data are so strong that oncologists have “no more excuses” for disregarding it.”

The Land of Many Palaces

Posted by on Mar 26, 2015 in Art, Asia, Doc, Dollars, Health, Human Rights, Site, Spectacle |

An excerpt from my review: “As of July 1 2014, China’s population was estimated to be 1,393,783,836, about 20% of the world’s population, one in five people in the planet are Chinese nationals. Now and for the next twenty years, 250 millions of peasants are to move to the cities – existing ones or brand new ones like Ordos, the one featured in this film. There, as some of the characters in the documentary state, they are to become “more civilized.” A must-see film if you want to experience one of the many Chinese dreams, already set into motion.” […]

Claude Bourguignon: Les Pieds sur Terre (Well-Grounded Arguments Against Agrobusiness & More)

Posted by on Nov 8, 2014 in Afri, Cancer, Death, Doc, Eco, France, Health, World |

“Now we could teach schoolchildren how the planet is going to die, not as a probability, but as the history of the future” – Marguerite Duras — Claude Bourguignon interviews et avec Pierre Rabhi et Lydia Bourguignon — Alerte à Babylone + “Maintenant on pourrait presque enseigner aux enfants dans les écoles comment la planète va mourir, non pas comme une probabilité mais comme l’histoire du futur. On leur dirait qu’on a découvert des feux, des brasiers, des fusions, que l’homme avait allumé et qu’il était incapable d’arrêter. Que c’était comme ça, qu’il y avait des sortes d’incendie qu’on ne pouvait plus arrêter du tout. Le capitalisme a fait son choix : plutôt ça que de perdre son règne.” Entretien avec Marguerite DURAS, Le Matin, 4 juin 1986 […]
