La #Identidad y la #Memoria siempre han sido temas recurrentes en el CINE.

¿Somos lo que DECIDIMOS ser conscientemente o lo que APARENTAMOS inconscientemente?

¿Cuánto de nuestros deseos configura la personalidad desconocida del otro?

Hoy toca #HILO de pelis sobre ello ⬇️⬇️ Image
Los temas de la #memoria, los #recuerdos, la #idealización o la #identidad pueden suponer SPOILERS de la trama en sí...

Some alternative posters for Cry Danger (1951), along with what they used to call a lobby card - there are a few others on the film’s IMDb page too. #Noirvember #CryDanger ImageImageImageImage
Contrast the American posters with these two much racier French and Italian posters, both of which foreground Fleming. #Noirvember ImageImage
This was great fun. Powell plays Rocky (it doesn’t suit him), an ex-con who gets out of jail after serving 5 years for a robbery he didn’t commit and goes after the gangster who framed him. Fleming plays the wife of Powell’s supposed partner in the robbery, who’s still in jail. Image

(1) #HWstormwatch update 5.30pm EDT Thursday.

#Wilfred will likely be the name of the storm currently brewing in the Gulf. NHC says it will move NNE, which is bad news for the US Gulf coast.

#Alpha will probably be the name of the orange storm below. Future track uncertain.
(2) Post tropical storm #Sally still has a few more days of heavy rain for the Carolinas, Virginia and maybe other states. Flooding in AL and FL will take a while to go away. Please keep these & #Laura folk in your prayers, and donate if you can.

#Vicky is remnants now.
(3) Weatherfolk and Democrats are trying to talk up the danger from an above-average hurricane season but always do your own fact checking, esp. when someone is trying to provoke fear.

Most recent Atlantic storms were never a threat to the US. Numbers tell only half the story.

Involved in situation in #LakeCharles with senior home where staff abandoned.

Med volunteers on site. Residents currently in AC'd trucks due to heat exhaustion. Doing insulin and BP checks, as well as meal delivery.

2nd abandoned senior home found in #Laura.

Update: After our tweet, official comes by, saw the scene, said he was going to @GOHSEP to "raise hell".

Variety of agencies respond. Say residents will be taken to shelters in buses.

2 hours later... no buses. No responses.

Somebody get this fixed. Raise more hell.
Photo of the agencies responding. Glad they were there, thankful they responded.

Yet, low income seniors, still remain in the street overheating.

More resources than you can shake a stick at in LA.

So why is it up to underfunded VOADs and volunteers to solve these problems?

With @GovAbbott and other leaders for a press conference in Orange, TX today. Great to see so many Texans helping Texans – in true Texas fashion, people are already stepping up to help their neighbors in need. Image
I’ve always been a strong supporter of storm surge protection projects to ensure Texas is prepared for any storm that comes at us. These systems help minimize damage when a storm like #Laura hits our shores.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, I helped secure $3.9 billion in federal funding to advance the Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay (S2G) project & have supported accelerating the Coastal Texas Study. Projects like S2G & the Coastal Spine are critical in helping keep Texans safe.

O furacão #Laura chegou causando destruição. É o furacão mais intenso até agora da temporada de ciclones tropicais do Atlântico em 2020, que atinge principalmente os EUA, o México e o Caribe. Mas você sabe como eles se formam? Sou @_camillacosta e conto mais nesse 🧶
Para começar é bom saber que quando falamos de, furacões, ciclones e tufões estamos falando basicamente da mesma coisa: ciclones tropicais. Eles recebem nomes diferentes porque ocorrem em regiões diferentes do planeta. Essa é sua distribuição: Image
Em quase 60% das vezes, os furacões que chegam até o Caribe, EUA e México começam como ondas tropicais, áreas de baixa pressão atmosférica que se formam na costa leste da África e viajam empurradas pelos ventos alísios. Image

Deve atingir Louisiana e Texas.

Possibilidade grande de uma catástrofe de níveis históricos Image
“O Centro Nacional de Furacões dos Estados Unidos classificou o furacão Laura, que se aproxima dos Estados do Texas, da Louisiana e do Arkansas nas próximas horas, como impossível de sobreviver”…

O furacão #Laura está cada vez mais próximo da terra. Image

For this elevation (beam height from KLCH is around 16,000ft which is ~550-hPa), these radial velocities seen in the E eyewall of #Laura are incredible. Yes that is an inbound 160-mph velocity... at 550-hPa!

This is a very powerful and deep vertical circulation.
And if you go pixel hunting for the maximum velocity pixel, there are values that are larger than that too. The latest scan for example has a 169-mph pixel!

The @53rdWRS normally samples strong hurricanes at 700-hPa as winds decrease w/ height. This is well above that level!
I’m just gonna continue sharing incredible #Laura velocities in this thread. Now up to 173mph in the NE quad.

Here's a thread with the latest on Hurricane #Laura. It continues to strengthen as it moves toward the NW Gulf Coast. Minor to moderate impacts are expected across portions of SE LA and S MS. #lawx #mswx (1/5)
🌊 Life-threatening storm surge flooding is possible across coastal portions of SE LA generally west of Grand Isle.

🌊 Water levels will be highest during high tide today and tomorrow

🌊 Expect several roads to become impassible and some areas to become inaccessible

🌬️ Tropical storm force winds, especially in gusts, will be possible across much of the area

🌬️ The greatest threat for damaging winds will be across areas generally near the Atchafalaya River

🌬️ These winds could cause damage to trees, powerlines, and weak structures.
