w w w . p r o s p e c t - m a g a z i n e . c o . u k Viewed from the outside, the film world seems permanently enslaved to fashion. One minute, it's all romantic comedies in the multiplexes, then westerns come back, then science-fiction. But the style of movies follows technical trends too. In the 1980s, editing speeded up. In the 1990s, widescreen and shallow focus were all the rage. Today, a survey of the movie map shows that cinematic realism is in vogue.

Gruppi Google MALATTIE AUTOIMMUNI
E' stato osservato che le malattie autoimmuni sono in netto aumento
statistico e che sono caratterizzate da sintomi importanti e spesso molto gravi.
Artrite Reumatoide, Lupus, Sclerodermia, Periarterite Nodosa, Rettocolite, Morbo di Crohn, Tiroiditi Autoimmuni, Psoriasi, Sclerosi Multipla, ecc.,sono termini che sentiamo sempre più spesso e che allarmano perché indicano malattie ritenute incurabili. Inoltre, la medicina convenzionale non riesce a spiegarne l'origine ma solo il meccanismo d'azione che, come è noto, consiste nell'aggressione da parte del sistema immunitario del paziente verso strutture proprie dell'organismo (autoimmunità).

'Shakey': Neil Young Keeps on Rockin' hose of you decrepit enough to prefer the so-called ''classic rock'' radio format to its ''alternative'' progeny may have noticed, in the months since Sept. 11, an unsettling anthem rising up through your standard diet of Led Zeppelin and the Doors. A sort of Memphis soul number, complete with billowing organ courtesy of Booker T. Jones. Kind of a jaunty tune, in fact, were it not for the lyrics, which concern United Flight 93, which went down in the Pennsylvania countryside just after the World Trade Center calamity. The title is ''Let's Roll.'' The artist is Neil Young

Stephen Jay Gould, Biologist and Theorist on Evolution, Dies at 60 One of the most influential evolutionary biologists of the 20th century and perhaps the best known since Charles Darwin, Dr. Gould touched off numerous debates, forcing scientists to rethink sometimes entrenched ideas about evolutionary patterns and processes. He is credited with bringing a forsaken paleontological perspective to the evolutionary mainstream.

The New York Review of Books: Popcorn Park On halcyon afternoons back in the Age of Pop, around 1966 or so, college students and other idlers—mostly male, as was and is the tendency—liked to use the latest stack of Marvel Comics as text for a free-floating commentary. The vantage point hardly mattered: aesthetics, Jungian psychology, the dynamics of American social life, the sexual implications of superhero costuming. Marvel's creations were grist for any kind of rumination, high or low. They provided a shorthand for categorizing personalities and situations (an analogy for almost anything could be found somewhere within the rapidly expanding Marvel Universe), and, most satisfying of all, could be taken as frivolously or as seriously as you wanted. In those days it was not unusual to hear Stan Lee (then still the writer of almost all the company's dozen or so titles) praised as a protean intelligence of near-Shakespearean dimensions, while the distinctive styles of Marvel's artists—Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Jim Steranko, and many others—fueled hours of discussion about the nature of the line and the employment of space
