US, UK & EU refusing implement international travel quarantine measures - the excuse for SARS was there is asymptomatic transmission & excuse hMPXV is no asymptomatic transmission!

Responsibility not only punted down to individual traveller, it is being punted down to billions.
US, UK & EU abandon Zero-COVID b/c “already here”? So why abandon Delta-ZERO before Delta exist? Why abandon billions take individual precaution instead inconvenience few elite to prevent NEXT significant VoC?

Airline CEO lobbyists influence public & policy via corporate media.
Mainstream media news has suffered since social media, must rely advertisements. How many Sponsored Story concerning “outrage over airport delay” or “tear jerk flight cancellation” is secretly invading your news? How many cruise & travel advertisement appear with website?

.@paulmozur, @muyixiao et @JohnLiuNN ont publié un article remarquable dans le @nytimes du 25/06/22 sur les nouveaux développements du système répressif chinois: «‘An Invisible Cage’: How China Is Policing the Future» [ma synthèse: 1/25] Cc @Aurelie_JEAN.…
2) 1,4 Mds de Chinois sont désormais l’objet d’un contrôle constant, sous l’œil de 600 millions de caméras (rues, métros, halls d’hôtel, immeubles…). Les téléphones sont tracés, les achats enregistrés et les échanges en ligne censurés.
3) C’est maintenant leur futur qui est sous surveillance. La police chinoise se dote en effet d’une technologie fondée sur l’exploitation de données massives et supposée «prédire» les délits et les mouvements d’opposition. #MinorityReport

Mi parte favorita de #ElPadrino es cuando el bigote de Don Corleone se convierte en un árbol.
¿Aprovechamos para abrir hilo sobre el "match cut"? Va. El #MatchCut en una transición entre dos planos que une dos elementos visuales de ambos con una intención narrativa. Se puede hacer mediante fundido, como en el caso anterior, o como en este caso en #Aliens (1986).
O el comienzo de #CiudadanoKane (1941) que es sencillamente una magistral sucesión de varios match cuts. Fijaos en la ventana iluminada de la mansión, como no pierde su lugar en la composición plano tras plano.

¿Qué tienen en común el CINE de #Hitchcock y #DéjàVu de Tony Scott?

Abro #HILO ⬇️⬇️ ImageImageImage
Aunque quizá la pregunta adecuada sería:

¿Qué tienen en común el díptico #LaVentanaIndiscreta-#Vértigo y la película de acción y ciencia ficción protagonizada por #DenzelWashington? 🤔
O, lo que es lo mismo:

¿En serio vamos (o voy) a comparar las dos obras maestras de #Hitchcock con la estimable (y quizá ya está) #DéjàVu?

#Persona (1966) de Bergman es una de la mejores obras de la Historia del Cine.

Aunque obligue al espectador a adoptar una actitud proactiva y a trabajar durante su visionado, el vigor de sus imágenes ha perdurado e influido a numerosos cineastas.

1/Thread: Our monitored life and "Red Flag" laws.....Disclosure: I'm that annoying person who thinks on the details of the portrayed Big Picture stuff.

Yesterday, local rock station commercial:

Alexa: "You don't have to yell!"
2/Consider how in SM, viral videos by lefties showing anyone who disagrees with them and says it with conviction and volume are "angry."

Consider how all the rage is passing "Red Flag" laws to allow "authorities" to confiscate firearms from legitimate owners,...
3/because anyone considers them "angry."

Now these truncated videos are "evidence." Context that may come from a real investigation be damned...we've been told any angry person is a mass shooter just waiting for and

In China, a Three-Digit Score Could Dictate Your Place in Society…

"It was as if Amazon had swallowed eBay, Apple News, Groupon, American Express, Citibank, and YouTube—and could siphon up data from all of them."
Preempting instability:

“That’s why social credit ideally requires both coercive aspects and nicer aspects, like providing social services and solving real problems. It’s all under the same Orwellian umbrella.”

Dystopian implications: #MinorityReport?
"Because of my middling score, however, I had to pay a $30 deposit before I could scan my first bike. Nor could I get deposit-free hotel stays or GoPro rentals, or free umbrella rentals. I belonged to the digital underclass."
