Elia Kazan in Cannes, in Kazan introduced into cinema the faces and the vibrancy of the unseen American mongrel gallery: Mexican peasants, Italian longshoremen, Appalachian yeomen, black sharecroppers, Anatolian immigrants. These movies brought vexed and paradoxical news about America. Perhaps the most startling news of all is that little of this enormous contribution to culture would have existed if Kazan had not testified, in , as a friendly witness before the House Un-American Activities Committee. On April 10, —a day that marked him for the rest of his life—Kazan made his second appearance before a public session of HUAC. In his first appearance, in January, he had refused to name names. Before testifying, Kazan took a walk in the woods behind his Connecticut home with Arthur Miller to explain his decision: Unless he came clean he could never hope.
Yesterday, I have found the method which has worked very well. It is incredibly time consuming for a single serving but it works. It was wrapped in foil single layer. I filled a pot with water to the point whereby the pyrex bowl will float and not touch any metal surface.
Abstract High-throughput screening is a key technique in discovery and engineering of enzymes.
But the play has gone down in history, thanks to a five-minute speech made by a little-known actor in a secondary role: Marlon Brando, at twenty-one, played an ex-G. Pauline Kael, very young herself and years away from a critical career, happened to come late to the play one evening and recalled that she averted her eyes, in embarrassment, from what appeared to be a man having a seizure onstage: Of the entire cast, only Brando and Malden had given the kind of performance that he and Clurman wanted: Group actors were so authentic that it was sometimes difficult to understand what they were saying.
For the actors, the goal was a paradox: Although the Group had disbanded by the time Brando arrived in New York, in , he soon began taking classes with a charter member, Stella Adler, who had actually studied with Stanislavsky, and whom he credited as his teacher to the end of his life. But Clurman, who was directing, sensed that the fledgling actor was nearly choked with feeling, and pushed until he got him to explode.
As it turned out, that Broadway season was the first sign of a momentous transition in the art, if not the business, of acting: Auditioning for Williams, Brando was like lightning: Not only did he have the sexual power the play required; he provided the key to redressing what Williams had worried was the too easy moral imbalance of his work. The face above the heavily muscled body was angelic; the pain he showed when he broke down and wailed for his wife was searing, elemental.
New Trickle Down Method Developed to ‘Grow’ Graphene New Trickle-Down Method Developed to ‘Grow’ Graphene Indo-Asian News Service, 06 August Share on Facebook Tweet Share Email Reddit Comment By making carbon leak trickle down through cracks on copper, researchers have developed a new process for ‘growing’ graphene directly on materials used for nano-scale electronic applications, thereby opening the way to produce high-performance electronic devices.
This versatile process, developed by a team of chemical engineers led by Vikas Berry at the University of Illinois at Chicago UIC in the US, enables graphene to be economically grown on almost any semiconducting or dielectric substrate of relevance to the electronic industry, the researchers claim. Discovered in , graphene is a sheet of a single layer of carbon atoms, arranged in a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice. Due to the ultrafast mobility of its charge carriers, graphene has shown promise in nano-electronics, opto-electronics, and photonics.
It also possesses a plethora of extraordinary mechanical and thermal properties that are still being exploited. For nano-electronic device fabrications, it is essential to transfer the graphene – grown separately on metallic substrates – onto selected dielectric substrates.
With his new formed close partnership with labelmate Method Man who, with him, made a featured appearance on the Doc’s Da Name record on the song “Well All Rite Cha”.
Print Share People had lost power earlier in the day. That’s how it was on the afternoon in late July when I ferried out to Staten Island to watch as Method Man shot the video above for “Straight Gutta,” which premiered yesterday. The song is the second single from Meth’s latest album, Meth Lab. The “Straight Gutta” shoot, set as it was in a small skate park housed in a warehouse on Front Street near Park Hill, had a very different vibe.
In between takes, passing blunts and sticking his face in front of fans to stay cool, Meth told me more about “Straight Gutta” and Meth Lab, his first album in nine years. Most everyone on set has some connection to the borough. The album, he said, “was just something I was doing for a friend as a favor at first, but then it turned into something else. It’s an odd time for Method Man to return to his roots on Staten Island, since his acting career seems to be pulling him in the opposite direction.

Reddit It is Friday, and I thought of writing a quick tip on how you can use the same date dimension for displaying the last N months say, in a bar chart and the data for selected month say, in a card visual. Most of the techniques for doing the same use a disconnected date dimension along with the regular date dimension; however, using the same date dimension as a filter has the additional benefit that you can use all of the other measures also without any changes in the same report.
Before I show you the technique, let me show you an example of a finished report. Below, you can see that I have displayed 3 regular measures based on the selected month Sales for selected month, Sales YTD and Sales Last Year along with a bar chart that shows the sales for the last N months based on the selected month special thanks to the folks at PowerBI. Follow the steps below to recreate the same: You can change the month in the slicer and verify that the measure values change for the selected month.
Let us create a What If parameter called N with values from 1 to 24, and increments of 1. Place it in the chart as shown below 4 The main step for this technique is — create a measure that will display the sum of sales for the last N months. It is important to know that putting the Month from the Date table will not work, so what we are going to do is create a month column in the Sales table and then use that as the axis for the bar chart.
Method Man and Redman are hip hop’s chameleons

Their success would lead the duo on to star in movies and TV shows, become product spokespersons and household names, but also associated them with marijuana use in the media.
New ‘shake-and-bake’ method for making crystal meth gets around drug laws but is no less dangerous By The Associated Press Aug 25, 2: The new technique uses far less of the drug pseudoephedrine than traditional methods. Shake the bottle and the volatile reaction produces one of the world’s most addictive drugs. Only a few years ago, making meth required an elaborate lab — with filthy containers simmering over open flames, cans of flammable liquids and hundreds of pills.
The process gave off foul odors, sometimes sparked explosions and was so hard to conceal that dealers often “cooked” their drugs in rural areas. Advertisement But now drug users are making their own meth in small batches using a faster, cheaper and much simpler method with ingredients that can be carried in a knapsack and mixed on the run. The “shake-and-bake” approach has become popular because it requires a relatively small number of pills of the decongestant pseudoephedrine — an amount easily obtained under even the toughest anti-meth laws that have been adopted across the nation to restrict large purchases of some cold medication.
Early life[ edit ] In , Redman was expelled from Montclair State University his freshman year due to poor academic performance at age Having no other options, Redman then went back home to live with his mother, Darlene Noble, who eventually kicked him out of her house for selling cocaine. He freestyled over funk and hip hop instrumental tracks on vinyl records in various parks and house parties around New York and New Jersey. Erick Sermon said when he met Redman for the first time, “I knew there was something spectacular about him.
The group released their debut album Enter the Wu-Tang 36 Chambers in , receiving notable commercial and critical success.
He left the country — without saying goodbye, I might add — to start a new life. I was a hormonal, heartbroken year-old, and in between work hours spent editing textbooks, I nursed Mae and mashed up baby food. That first year was chaos. It didn’t help that there were no single-mom role models in my life — except, say, Madonna, who was also parenting solo at the time.
If she can do it, I can, I used to think, but I hardly had a superstar’s life. Fortunately, I had a fantastic group of friends who helped. Maybe none of them knew exactly what I was going through, but they babysat and showered Mae with love, which I appreciate to this day. After a time, I got back on my feet and ventured out. And what did I see? A lot more single moms than I had ever noticed before.
In fact, in , nearly 4 in 10 babies in the U. It’s an all-time high — and it’s not due to teen moms teen motherhood is at its lowest rate in 65 years. Births to unmarried women ages 25 to 29 are up 30 percent since ; births to unmarried women ages 30 to 44 are up 17 percent.
