101- TV/Film Production to Resume
Protocols based on "The Safe Way Forward"

Los Angeles -- September 21 - The unions representing casts and crews today announced they have reached an agreement with the major studios on protocols to allow the industry to safely re-open. The protocols pave the way for creative workers, who have been hard hit by the pandemic, to resume their crafts and livelihoods in workplaces redesigned around their health. Guiding principles include strictly enforced testing regimens and safety protocols, a zone-based system, and diligent use of personal protective equipment (PPE). The new measures will be implemented by employers in order to minimize the risk of transmission. To ensure workers' livelihoods are not burdened with added uncertainty during the pandemic, the agreement also includes COVID-19 sick leave and quarantine pay.  
•••• The agreement is the outcome of unprecedented coordination and solidarity between the Directors Guild of America (DGA), International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) and the Basic Crafts, and Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). This group worked with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) for months to develop science-based protocols to minimize the risk of transmission, designed with the unique work environments of film and television production in mind. 
•••• The new guidelines are based on "The Safe Way Forward" report released by the unions in June, and developed in consultation with leading epidemiologists and experts; as well as the preceding industry white paper[1] delivered to state governments and agencies to examine the resumption of production.

106- SAG-AFTRA CONDEMNS THE ARREST OF JOURNALIST JOSIE HUANG
LOS ANGELES (September 14, 2020) -- SAG-AFTRA today released the following statement regarding the arrest of KPCC journalist Josie Huang on Saturday:
•••• This past Saturday, Los Angeles Sheriff's Department deputies tackled, held down, handcuffed and arrested SAG-AFTRA member Josie Huang, a public media journalist with radio station KPCC. Huang was visibly credentialed as a working journalist and verbally identified herself as a member of the press. She had done nothing to warrant questioning much less arrest.
•••• This is another deeply troubling interaction in a string of police arrests and often violent attacks on working journalists who are abiding by the law and simply trying to do their jobs.
•••• SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said, "These unconstitutional attacks on the rights of a free press are appalling and must stop now. SAG-AFTRA champions the U. S. Constitution and the work of our journalist members, whose primary role is to provide citizens with the information they need to effectively govern a democracy."
•••• "The people's right to a free press is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution, which establishes that the press shall be free from government interference in the dissemination of information, ideas and opinions," Carteris added.
•••• SAG-AFTRA National Vice President, Broadcasters and journalist Bob Butler said, "Reporters cover the news so that the public is informed. It is outrageous that sheriff's deputies arrested Huang, whose station identification was clearly displayed while she identified herself as a journalist several times." 
•••• SAG-AFTRA and our members, journalists and non-journalists alike, support a free and unencumbered press and stand with any journalist who might find his or her ability to report on our government challenged or compromised.  
•••• SAG-AFTRA is calling on the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department to drop all charges and apologize to Josie Huang.

• Statement issued by our member journalists at KPCC: 
•••• "We offer condolences to the two sheriff deputies who were shot Saturday evening. These are challenging and stressful times for everyone, but Josie was arrested while doing her job. The charges should be dropped. Her arrest is the latest in a series of troubling interactions between our reporters and some local law enforcement officers. Journalists provide an essential service, providing fair, accurate and timely journalism and without them, our democracy is at risk."
•••• We unreservedly condemn the vicious attack on the deputies in Compton Saturday night and hope that their assailant is caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We send our heartfelt wishes for the deputies' full and complete recoveries, and express our deep gratitude to them and to their colleagues who work to keep our communities safe while respecting our rights as citizens in a democratic society.

106- Red Cross LA Sends Volunteers to Northern California for Wildfire Response
LOS ANGELES, August 26, 2020 -- The American Red Cross Los Angeles Region concludes its immediate Lake Fire relief operations following the announcement that evacuation orders have been lifted. Caseworkers will continue to virtually support those affected as they begin the recovery process. The organization now shifts its focus to support Northern California as wildfires continue to spread across the state, with hundreds of thousands of acres burned and many more under threat.
••••• When the Lake Fire began on Aug. 12, the Red Cross mobilized its disaster workforce to aid those affected. Red Cross volunteers supported three evacuation points, providing snacks, water and shelter for anyone fleeing the fire. The Red Cross provided hotel lodging for more than 20 evacuees, delivering service in accordance with COVID-19 safety precautions. At the hotel, Lake Fire evacuees received constant care from Red Cross volunteers, including daily health checks, disaster mental health support and meals. In addition, the Red Cross provided emergency supplies and assistance returning to their homes.

 The Red Cross provided 179 overnight hotel stays and served more than 980 meals and snacks.

 Residents impacted by the Lake Fire, who still are in need of assistance, can contact the local Red Cross at 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

 VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY NEEDED

Wildfires in Northern California continue, with hundreds of thousands of acres burned and many more under threat. The Red Cross has set up several shelters for those evacuating providing a safe place for more than 3,100 people.
•••••  However, we need help as the fires are predicted to continue to go and more people will need support. Those in good health and willing to deploy for a period of up to 14 days to support the shelters and evacuation sites in Northern California are urged to sign up and start their training today for one of two volunteer roles: Shelter services or health services.
••••• The Red Cross strictly follows and enforces all COVID safety guidelines provided by the CDC and the Department of Health Services. 

People need your help. The Red Cross workforce on the ground needs your help. Please sign up and volunteer. Visit redcross.org/la today or email volunteerservices.losangeles.ca@redcross.org.

RETURNING HOME AFTER A WILDFIRE

•• Don't return home until officials say it's safe to do so.
•• Inspect the roof immediately and extinguish any sparks or embers. Wildfires may have left embers that could reignite.
•• Check your home for embers that could cause fires. Look for signs of a fire including smoke or sparks.
•• Avoid damaged or downed power lines, poles and wires.
•• Keep your animals under your direct control. Hidden embers and hot spots could burn them.
•• Wet down debris to minimize breathing in dust particles.
•• Follow public health guidance on safe cleanup of fire ash and safe use of masks.
•• Wear leather gloves and shoes with heavy soles.
•• Throw out any food that has been exposed to heat, smoke or soot.
•• Download the free Red Cross Emergency App for more preparedness tips and safety checklists, localizable alerts, Shelter Locator and more. 

Please follow @RedCrossLA on Twitter for the latest updates. Visit redcross.org/wildfire for information on how to prepare for, respond to and recover from wildfires.

 About the American Red Cross:
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

•••• By now, more than 1,000 enterprises have applied or registered to attend the expo, including about 200 Fortune 500 companies, and more companies are expected to join the event. The exhibition area has surpassed 270,000 square meters, according to data from the CIIE Bureau.

115- AFI Fest joins an array of festivals and conventions in going virtual in 2020.
•••• The revised fall festival corridor in the age of COVID has continued to take shape with recent announcements of hybrid virtual/physical events from Venice, Toronto and New York, along with the outright cancellation of Telluride. Now, L.A.'s own AFI Fest will officially be a virtual event when it takes place Oct. 15-22.
•••• Continuing their Thursday to Thursday run but moving up a month from their most recent dates in November, festival organizers plan to have much of the same programming structure as in past years, including sections dedicated to world cinema and new auteurs. According to Michael Lumpkin, director of AFI festivals, where other festivals are drastically scaling back the number of films being screened, AFI Fest will likely only have a 10% to 20% reduction in the number of titles presented, if any reduction at all. (The event screened more than 140 titles in 2019.)
•••• The organizers of AFI Fest have one advantage over other fall fests making the switch to virtual events -- they have already done it. The AFI Docs festival, based out of Washington, D.C., took place in June with ticketed virtual screenings and events. Michael Lumpkin, director of AFI Festials, noted that attendance was actually higher than in years past, drawing viewers from all 50 states, without the logistics of theater bookings and seat capacity.

Rodriguez wax poetic about life in Los Angeles; Viet Thanh Nguyen expound reclaiming historical narratives; Padma Lakshmi dish on food and life.

CES 2021 Canceled Over COVID-19, Moves to Online Format
••The Consumers Electronics Show (CES) 2021, originally slated for January 6-9-2021 will not be held in Las Vegas, but presented "an all-digital experience," according to the show organizer, the Consumer Technology Association ( CTA).
CES160w.jpg•• The show takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is located just off the Strip and attracts thousands of attendees every year, bolstering the economy and employing many along the way.
•••• Industry professionals get a look at the latest and greatest in consumer technology and products before they're available for purchase to the general public. Typically, Las Vegas hotel rooms are filled to capacity and restaurants, casinos, and other nearby businesses reap the benefits.
•••• "With the growing global health concerns about the spread of COVID-19, it is not possible to safely convene tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas in early January 2021 to meet and do business in person.
•••• "An all-digital CES 2021 will allow the entire tech community to safely share ideas and introduce the products that will shape our future. You'll be able to participate in all the awe-inspiring moments of CES wherever you are in the world. We are designing a unique experience for the tech industry."
•••• The digital CES experience will include keynotes and conferences, an online product showcase, meetings, and opportunities for networking. It will take place the first week of January.
•••• Any show planned for 2020 has been canceled," says President of Creative Strategies Tim Bajarin, who has attended 46 CES shows. "I don't think we'll see live shows coming back until mid-2021 at the earliest."
•••• Apple successfully moved its Worldwide Developers Conference online.
•••• The Black Hat USA security conference, which provides security consulting, training, and briefings to hackers, corporations and government agencies, has moved online; it's set for early August. Dreamforce, the meeting put on by Salesforce that has previously taken over San Francisco, is set for November. And the bulk of the Republican and Democratic political conventions are expected to occur online
•••• Virtual shows, however, haven't found their usual assortment of buzz and media coverage online. The recent Comic-Con convention, a huge draw for fans of sci-fi and geek culture, was a "bust" according to Variety.

Philbin holds the Guinness World Record for the most face time on camera when he logged his 15,600th hour in 2004.
••• •"We are deeply saddened to share that our beloved Regis Philbin passed away last night of natural causes, one month shy of his 89th birthday," the statement said. "His family and friends are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him -- for his warmth, his legendary sense of humor, and his singular ability to make every day into something worth talking about. We thank his fans and admirers for their incredible support over his 60-year career and ask for privacy as we mourn his loss."
••• Raised in the Bronx before attending the University of Notre Dame, Philbin served in the Navy before his career on television began, first as host of a local talk show in San Diego, "The Regis Philbin Show." He went on to co-star on ABC talk show "The Joey Bishop Show," before hosting "The Morning Show" beginning in 1983. It was later renamed "Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee," launching an iconic talk-show hosting career. Kathie Lee Gifford left the show after 15 years. In 2001, the franchise became known as "Live! with Regis and Kelly," with Regis hosting opposite Kelly Ripa. He left the show in 2011 after hosting for 23 years.
••• Morning after morning, Regis Philbin would help America brace itself for another workday with a contagious blend of enthusiasm, barbed humor and laments about the mundane ups and downs of everyday life.
••• Philbin earned numerous Emmy nominations, Lifetime Achievment Award from the Daytime Emmys, hosted New Year's Eve specials, rode in parades, and helped reinvigorate prime-time game shows with ABC's wildly popular "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," a runaway hit he hosted for three seasons starting in 1999-2002. When he stepped away for good in 2011, it was an emotional goodbye that pulled in many viewers.
••• Philbin is survived by his wife of 50 years, Joy and their two daughters J.J. Philbin and Joanna Philbin, along with daughter Amy Philbin, from his first marriage.

  2021 Roseparade canceled because of the coronavirus
PASADENA, CA, (July 15, 2020) The 132nd Tournament of Roses Parade will not take place on Jan. 1, 2021, because of the coronavirus pandemic, parade officials announced Wednesday morning. It's the first time in 75 years that the parade has been canceled.
•••• The last time the parade was canceled since its inception in 1891, was only three times &endash; the wartime years of 1942, 1943 and 1945.
•••• "Like most people having never lived through a pandemic before parade officials initially hoped they'd be able to hold the parade safely but after weeks of assessment it became clear such a feat would be impossible. Instead the Tournament of Roses is looking into options for celebrating the new year in a new way.
•••• With reluctance and tremendous disappointment, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association announces that, in accordance with Governor Newsom's Phase IV re-opening schedule, and after thoughtful consideration of the restrictions and guidelines in place as a result of COVID-19, we are unable to host the 2021 Rose Parade.
•••• "The health and well-being of our parade participants and guests, as well as that of our volunteer members, professional staff and partners, is our number one priority," said Bob Miller, 2021 President of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association.
•••• While the parade itself is more than five months from now, the preparation for such a large event typically begins in February. "In addition to the advance planning required by our band and equestrian units, the construction of our floats takes many months and typically requires thousands of volunteers to gather in ways that aren't in compliance with safety recommendations and won't be safe in the coming months," said David Eads, Executive Director/CEO. "While we are extremely disappointed that we are unable to host the parade, we believe that not doing so will prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as protect the legacy of the Rose Parade for generations to come."
•••• The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association also hosts the Rose Bowl Game each January 1. The planning for this year's Rose Bowl Game, which will serve as a College Football Playoff Semifinal, is still ongoing. "We continue to work with the College Football Playoff and our collegiate partners to explore what this year's college football season will look like amidst COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines. While the safety and well-being of the student athletes, university personnel and fans is our top priority, we remain hopeful that the Granddaddy of Them All will take place on New Year's Day," continued Eads.
•••• "I know that I speak on behalf of our 935 volunteer members, and the hundreds of thousands in our community for which the Rose Parade is an annual tradition, when I say we will miss the joy of coming together and the making of memories," said Miller. "But know that we will not miss this opportunity to celebrate a New Year and healthy new beginnings on January 1, 2021."
•••• "We all know what the Rose Parade means to us here in Pasadena, as well as to New Year celebrations around the world. To know that we won't get to experience this great tradition on January 1, 2021, is extremely disappointing. However, we also know that we must act responsibly to protect our community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek. "We look forward to working with the Pasadena Tournament of Roses on their reimagined New Year celebration, as well as the return of the Rose Parade on January 1, 2022."
•••• In considering the options for the 2021 Rose Parade, the Tournament of Roses commissioned a feasibility and safety report for hosting the Rose Parade during the COVID-19 Pandemic, conducted by public health experts from the Keck School of Medicine of USC. That report showed that even with intensive effort to ensure compliance with public health measures such as six-foot distancing and face masks, it is likely that Rose Parade activities before, during and after the event would inevitably lead to large numbers of individuals (many of whom represent high risk groups for COVID-19 complications, such as retirees over age 60) in close proximity to each other, potentially, in some cases, without masks. This creates a high-risk environment for viral spread, including super-spreader events.
•••• Although the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association will not be hosting its 132nd  Rose Parade, they will celebrate the New Year on January 1, 2021. Working in conjunction with our broadcast partners and sponsors, the Tournament of Roses has plans underway for a new kind of New Year celebration for those across the country and around the world. "Each year, the country turns its eyes to Pasadena for America's New Year celebration and we plan to deliver on that important promise," said Eads. "We may not be able to host our traditional five-mile march down Colorado Boulevard, but we are exploring new and safe ways we can collectively share in the celebration, and we look forward to announcing further details about our exciting new plans in the coming weeks."
•••• Decisions regarding some other traditions, such as the crowning of the Tournament of Roses Royal Court, haven't been made yet. A spokeswoman said "in the next few weeks, we'll make an announcement about the Royal Court and the theme and the tournament leadership."
•••• The Rose Bowl football game on Jan. 1, however, is still planned, whether it is with a socially distanced audience or an empty stadium, Eads said.

FRITZ COLEMAN'S DEFYING GRAVITY
December 2016 -TVI December Issue
LA's' beloved NBC4 weatherman, Fritz Coleman is bringing his one-man stage-show back to the historic El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood for three performances only -
Sunday December, 13, 20 and 27 at 2 pm.
••••He was named "Best Weatherman" in nearly every major paper in Southern California, including the Orange County Register, the San Bernardino Sun, and four times in the Los Angeles Daily News.
••• Fitz puts on his holiday hat to share the funniest show with his hilarious insight into our BOOMER generation!
••••The show resonates with people, and Fritz has observed, "Every generation has a similar feeling as they look back, hence the term 'good old days.' But these days we're living through global threats and national politics, and people are thinking 'what the heck's going on.' So I find that my show seems to crackle with people now because it harkens back to a time when life seemed more cut and dry, less complicated, and a little easier to cope with. So I provide a little nostalgia and fun."
••••Coleman said, "I have no delusions about what my comedy is. I'm not Lenny Bruce or George Carlin. I'm not trying to push the first amendment envelope. I'm not trying to educate people politically. I don't do political jokes. Honestly, my whole wish is to give people a show where they say 'That just felt good. Thank you, it was cathartic.' The highest compliment for me is hearing that I've taken you out of your present cares, made you laugh and feel better. If that happens, I've done my job."••
Don't miss Fritz' hilarious insight into our BOOMER generation!
•••"...Surprising, incisive and powerful." - Daily Variety
••• "The easy?going, folksy charm that has made Coleman an LA?area television news favorite for a quarter of a century also follows him to the stage. On the Fritz, simply moves the former standup comic-°©?turned newsman from one stage venue to another." - Stage Scene LA
••• "His skills go beyond finding everyday humor in various topics. His relaxed style and gift for language add depth, as though he's having a one-?one conversation," - Daily Breeze

113-Analysis of American media coverage during Covid-19
When it came to taking the Covid-19 pandemic seriously, was the America media fast enough to act?
•••• Digital Third Coast recently performed an analysis of Covid-19 media coverage in the early months of 2020 to see when publications began to pursue the subject. 
•••• Using the Internet Archive wayback machine, DTC studied snapshots of coronavirus-related news over the first 10 weeks of this year, across 18 of the nation's most prominent online publications. 

Here's what they found:
No sector of the mainstream media was quicker and more vigilant in tracking the emergence of Covid-19 than finance-focused publications. By the end of January, Bloomberg, Reuters and the Wall Street Journal accounted for 46% of all Covid-19 headlines analyzed. 

When looking at coronavirus as the lead story on a publication's home page, Bloomberg and Reuters had the most Covid-19 related lead stories in January, while the New York Times and ABC News had the strongest finishes, each with four consecutive weeks of lead stories heading into mid-March.

When analyzing total coronavirus headlines over 10 weeks, these 10 publications had the most coverage: 1. Bloomberg 2. Reuters 3. Breitbart 4. WSJ 5. NBC News 6. CBS News 7. Politico 8. New York Post 9. ABC News 10. USA Today.

107-Richard Branson's Virgin Orbit fails first attempt to launch a rocket from jumbo jet.
"History is not terribly kind, necessarily, to maiden flights or maiden sea voyages."
••••• Richard Branson's Virgin Orbit rocket, carried by a Boeing 747, has failed to launch a test satellite into space on its maiden voyage.
•••• The inaugural launch had appeared to be going well until moments after the rocket was dropped from beneath the left wing of the jumbo jet, dubbed Cosmic Girl.
•••• An anomaly occurred early in first stage flight, and the mission safely terminated."
•••• The attempt was a key test for the company's plan to launch satellites into space, and followed five years of development on the 21.3-metre LauncherOne rocket.
•••• The modified jumbo jet took off from Mojave Air and Space Port in the desert north of Los Angeles, and flew towards the Channel Islands, in the Pacific Ocean, where the drop occurred.
•••• The booster was released from under the wing of one of the UK entrepreneur's old jumbos which had been specially converted for the task.
•••• Virgin Orbit's goal is to try to capture a share of the emerging market for the launch of small satellites.
•••• It's not clear at this stage precisely what went wrong but the firm had warned beforehand that the chances of success might be only 50:50.
•••• The history of rocketry shows that maiden outings very often encounter technical problems.
•••• "Test flights are instrumented to yield data and we now have a treasure trove of that said Virgin Orbit CEO Dan Hart. He further stated that they accomplished many of the goals they set for themselves, though not as many as they would have liked."
•••• "Nevertheless, we took a big step forward today. Our engineers are already poring through the data.
•••• "Our next rocket is waiting. We will learn, adjust, and begin preparing for our next test, which is coming up soon."

LOS ANGELES (May 29, 2020) -- SAG-AFTRA has released the following statement in response to the arrest of CNN reporter Omar Jimenez and his colleagues, Bill Kirkos and Leonel Mendez, in Minneapolis this morning while reporting on protests.
•••• "As journalists it is our job to cover protests, demonstrations, marches and rallies -- some peaceful, some not. We do this without interfering with protesters or law enforcement.  The arrest of Omar Jimenez, who was clearly identified as a credentialed member of the news media, is unacceptable."
•••• SAG-AFTRA represents broadcast journalists in addition to actors, recording artists and other performers, and the union holds press freedoms in the highest regard.

•••• "As a union whose membership includes broadcast and online journalists, SAG-AFTRA champions the rights of a free press, whose primary role is to provide citizens with the information they need to effectively govern a democracy. These rights are guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which establishes that the press shall be free from government interference in the dissemination of information, ideas and opinions.
•••• "SAG-AFTRA, journalists and non-journalists alike, supports a free and unencumbered press and stands with any journalist who might find his or her ability to report on our government challenged or compromised.
•••• "SAG-AFTRA believes first and foremost that citizens in a democracy need the truth. Furthermore, journalists have an obligation to monitor and question those in power, pointing out wrongdoing when they find it, noting when facts asserted are not supported by evidence, and reporting inconsistencies in the positions of public figures.
•••• "As working professionals, members of the news media have an obligation to verify the accuracy of what they report, with loyalty only to their readers, listeners and viewers and not to any political party, affiliation or ideology.

Los Angeles, CA, May 30, 2020 -- SAG-AFTRA, a national union representing 160,000 actors, broadcasters and recording artists today released the below statement protesting the attack on journalists Kaitlin Rust and James Dobson by a Louisville police officer:
•••• "Last night, a Louisville, KY police officer aimed and fired pepper balls at WAVE3 News reporter Kaitlin Rust and photographer James Dobson. Rust and Dobson are professional journalists represented by SAG-AFTRA who were on assignment covering protests arising out of the police killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd.
•••• "When the officer fired on them, they were following police instructions, behind police lines, and were not interfering with police activity. Both Rust and Dobson were obviously in performance of their duties as journalists. They were carrying professional production equipment and Rust was wearing a bright yellow reflective vest.
•••• "SAG-AFTRA condemns the reprehensible actions of this police officer who, without provocation or justification, fired upon journalists who were doing their jobs. The assault also had a traumatizing effect on viewers at home who watched the officer aim and fire repeatedly during the live broadcast.
•••• "This was a brazen attack on two unarmed citizens. It is also an attack on our democracy and the people's right to know how those on whom we confer power are using that power.
•••• "Whether perpetrated by the public or by the state, acts of violence on journalists bringing news to the communities they serve are a betrayal of our nation's founding principle that a free press is necessary for the maintenance of a free government. 
•••• "As citizens of this democratic nation, and as a labor union representing broadcast journalists and other media professionals, SAG-AFTRA unequivocally champions the First Amendment rights of journalists to gather information and report the truth. We stand with any journalist who finds his or her ability to report on our government challenged or compromised."

"They all laughed at Christopher Columbus
When he said the world
was round:
They all laughed when
Edison recorded sound . . .
Ha, Ha, Ha -- who's got the
last laugh now?"
--Ira Gershwin, 1937

NBSPatent02AutoDraw108w.jpgWhen an inordinately eccentric young farmer suggested that he had invented a portable wireless telephone that could broadcast voice and music up over hight buildings and down through stone walls, most of Calloway County, Kentucky, chuckled. When he revealed his "crazy box, and odd assortment of batteries, rods, coils and kegs, they howled.
•••85 years after, their heirs are writing songs of love, christening radio stations, consecrating libraries and constructing memorial monuments in his infinite honor. The veneration is hardly widespread. 17,000 Murray, Kentucky, tobacco farmers may agree that Nathan B Stubblefield was the first man on earth to transmit and receive the human voice without wires. But most of our world is unacquainted with his improbable name and even his proponents are unaware of the precise date of his private discovery. Evidence points to a period between 1890 and 1892, at least seven years before Marconi sent the first wireless telegraph message across the English Channel.
••• Stubblefield's supporters maintain that telegraphy is far different from telephony; that they are, I fact, diverse discoveries. Wireless telephone is hip-to-shore radio, the walkie-talkie, the citizen band and portable radio, the mobile phone, the audio arm of television, rheostats, rectifying tubes, filaments, dials, microphones, AM and FM radio and every broadcasting booth on earth--not Marconi's Code signals.
•••Marconi's name is linked with Stubblefield's by Trumbull White in a book called The World's Progress, published in 1902. "Of very recent success are the experiments of Marconi with wireless telegraphy, an astounding and important advance over the ordinary system of telegraphy through wires. Now comes the announcement that an American inventor, unheralded and modest, has carried out successful experiments of telephoning and is able to transmit speech for great distances without wires . . the inventor is Nathan B. Stubblefield."
NBSBernardWindowWiFi108w.jpg•• "This Fellow Is Fooling me."
•••"Hello, Rainey," according to Dr. Rainey T. Wells, founder of Murray State College, was the world's first radio message. Testifying before an FCC commission in 1947, Rainey explained that he had personally heard Stubblefield demonstrate his wireless telephone as early as 1892.
•••"He had a shack about four feet square near his house from which he took an ordinary telephone receiver, but entirely without wires. Handing me these, he asked me to walk some distance away and listen. I had hardly reached my post, which happened to be an apple orchard, when I heard 'Hello, Rainey' come booming out of the receiver. I jumped a foot and said to myself, 'This fellow is fooling me. He as wires somewhere.' So I moved to the side some 20 feet but all the while he kept talking to me. I talked back and he answered me as plainly as you please. I asked him to patent the thing but he refused, saying he wanted to continue his research and perfect it."
•••Dr. William Mason, Stubblefield's family physician, described a day during that same year when Stubblefield "handed me a device in what appeared to be a keg with a handle on it. I started walking down the lane . . . from it I could distinctly hear his voice and a harmonica which he was broadcasting to me several years before Marconi made his announcement about wireless telegraphy."
•••••• Stubblefield was born in Murray, Kentucky, 1860 the son of Attorney and Mrs. William Jefferson Stubblefield (Capt. Billy). In his teens he was reportedly an omnivorous student and researched everything available on the new science of electricity. When Alexander Bel phoned Tom Watson on March 10, 1876, to say "Come here, Watson; I want you," Stubblefield was already experimenting with vibrating communication devices. In 1888 (Patent #378,183) he invented a vibrating telephone. The Murray News Weekly carried this item: "Charlie Hamlin has his telephone I fine working order from his store to his home. It is the Nathan Stubblefield patent and is the best I have ever talked through."
•••Stubblefield manufactured and patented batteries which he later described as "the bedrock of all my scientific research in raidio" (his spelling).
•••••• "I have been working on this, the wireless telephone, for 10 or 12 years," he told a St. Louis Post-Dispatch correspondent in January, 1902. "This solution is not the result of an inspiration or the work of a minute. It is the climax of years. The system can be developed until messages by voice can be sent and heard all over the country, even to Europe. The world is it limits."

/Images-00kudoad+/680Cov=Amazon108w.jpg"Diamonds as Large a Your Thumb."
•••With the new industrial and scientific epoch at hand and the first Roosevelt in the White House, Stubblefield built his broadcasting station, a tiny workshop on the front porch of his modest farmhouse. It was barely wide enough to hold the transmitter and one char. The transmitting mechanism was concealed in a box four feet hight,tow and a half feet wide, one and a half feet deep. "In that box," said Stubblefield, "lies the secret of my success." Five hundred yards away was the experimental receiving station, a dry-good box fastened to the foot of a tree stump.
•••The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter noted that Stubblefield's 14-year-old son, Bernard, was left on the porch wile h and the inventor walked to the stump. The writer picked up a receiver and heard spasmodic buzzings and then: "Hello. Can you hear me? Now I will count ten. One-to-three-four-=five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten. Did you hear that? Now I will whisper." Later Bernard whistled and played the mouth organ.
•••"I heard as clearly as if the speaker were only across a 12-foot room" wrote the newsman.
•••When the article appeared on January 10, 1902, Stubblefield was besieged by capitalists, financiers, stock-jugglers, hucksters and hawkers. Dr. Mason recalled seeing a $40,000 check for a part interest in the invention, as titans of industry "wearing diamonds as large as your thumb" scuttled up industry dirt roads to Stubblefield's flinty farm.
•••"You and I will yet add luster to the Stubblefield name," wrote Nathan to his cousin, Vernon.
•••He refused all propositions, including one for half a million dollars. "It is north twice that," he insisted, entrusting only his son, Bernard, with the secret of his mysterious keg. On occasion he repelled over-inquisitive visitors with a shotgun.
•••Invited by leading scientist, he traveled with his trunk of mystery to Washington, D.C., where he demonstrated the practicability of his contrivance from the steamship Bartholdy on the Potomac to crowds along the river bank. On Decoration Day, 1902, he broadcast words and music form the Belmont Mansion and Fairmont Park in Philadelphia to hundreds of statesmen, investors and newsmen. He obtained patents in England, the U.S. and Canada.
•••• In the Canadian patent is a drawing of a "horseless carriage" with a broadcasting set, presaging the auto radio by 30 years. But perhaps even more remarkable are notations that by reversing a switch one could change a broadcasting station into a receiving apparatus.
•••• Articles appeared in major newspapers throughout the world acclaiming him as the distinguished inventor of the wireless telephone and a celebrated scientific genius. At lease one extravagant reporter suggested that Stubblefield ad crated "the world's greatest invention."

%5E%3D%A5SMART90MAY-%40mac150/ImagesStub/stubtelephondelgreen108w.jpgDecline and Fall.
•••• There are three conflicting theories on how this farmer-inventor sowed the wind of immortality and reaped the whirlwind of oblivion. His cousin, Vernon, claimed the invention was stolen

"Will I ever see my trunk again?" Stubblefield scribbled on the back of an old map after he returned from Washington.
•••• "All his valuables were in that trunk," said his cousin.
•••• Perry Meloan, newspaper editor of Edmonton, Kentucky, an ear-witness to the first public demonstration in Murray, declared that Stubblefield was inveigled into a partnership in the Wireless Telephone Company of America, located at Broadway 11, New York. Learning that the firm was not interested in perfecting his creation but merely in selling stock unscrupulously, Stubblefield returned home. "Damn rascals," was his bitter comment to friends, and he advised them to withdraw their investment in his project. Soon after, he renounced his wife, nine (5 surviving) children and all relatives and built his hermitage gut in Almo, six miles from his family farmhouse. That farmhouse later mysteriously burned to the ground.
•••• His son, Bernard, joined the Westinghouse Electrical Corp., the firm that introduced the commercial radio. Did Bernard utilize his father's secrets to produce those early sets?
•••• Wireless lights appeared in the trees and along the fences guarding Stubblefield's crudely constructed shanty and, according to neighbors, voices, apparently coming from the air, were heard by trespassers. "Get your mule out of my cornfield," Stubblefield's wireless voice was hard to say in the night.
•••• He curtly refused the aid of friends. "He was never insane," they insisted, "only queer."
•••• Robert McDermott found the body of Nathan Stubblefield on March 30, 1928. "Death due to starvation," was Dr. Mason's conclusion. In a unmarked grave in Bowman's cemetery, one and a half miles form Murray, Stubblefield lies alone.
•••• In 1930 a memorial to "the first man to transmit and receive the human voice without wires" was dedicated at Murray State Teachers College campus, less than 100 feet from the charred ruins of the world's first broadcasting station.
•••• In 1962 his tragic life was dramatized in an epicedial folk opera, The Stubblefield Story, composed by Murray State professor Paul Shahan and Mrs. Lillian Lowry and performed in the campus auditorium.
•••• Murray's only radio station, 1 1000-watt outlet, broadcasts "middle of the road and some rock music as well," according to owner Fransuelle Cole. Book-ended between Bruce Springsteen's "Borne to Rune" a a live commercial for Kroger's grocery, on hears.

Troy Cory remembers his friend, rock pioneer Little Richard
•••• Back in the days of Specialty Records, Art Rupe, Larry Williams, Sonny Bono, Lloyd Price, René Hall, Robert "Bumps" Blackwell and Little Richard, Troy remembers his friend Little Richard as having been a force to wrecken with. Pianist Larry Williams was one of the first black "rock 'n roll stars" for Specialty and the young teenybopper Troy Cory-Stubblefield was signed up as the label's first white artist.
•••• Little Richard (Richard Wayne Penniman) passed away Saturday, June 9, at his family home in Tullahoma, Tennessee. He was 87 and had been battling bone cancer.
••••In early 1956, he formed an honored foundation of rock. Richard was one of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's inaugural inductees in 1986, and he received the Recording Academy's lifetime achievement award in 1993.
•••• The Georgia native exerted profound influence on the Beatles and many other legends to follow, including James Brown (who succeeded him in one of his early bands), Jimi Hendrix (one of his backup musicians in the mid-'60s) and Bruce Springsteen.
••••His first top hit (1956) "Long Tall Sally," made the top 10, and was joined there later by "Jenny Jenny," "Keep a Knockin' " and "Good Golly, Miss Molly," and "Tutti Frutti." Richard's other notable singles were "Rip It Up," "Slippin' and Slidin' (Peepin' and Hidin')" and "Lucille. Most of his songs bore his credit as a co-writer.
•••• In the mid-'50s he met R&B star Lloyd Price, who advised him to contact his label, Specialty Records. Richard sent a demo tape to the Los Angeles company, whose owner, Art Rupe, was looking for someone to compete with Atlantic Records' new sensation Ray Charles.
••••Sensing some potential in the urgent voice on the crude tape, Rupe signed Little Richard and dispatched producer Robert "Bumps" Blackwell to record him in New Orleans in September 1955, with the cream of the city's studio players, including saxophonist Lee Allen and drummer Earl Palmer.
•••• Later Richard began recording religious music, and in 1962 he took an offer to tour England singing gospel songs. But when he saw the audience response to Sam Cooke, one of his opening acts, he dusted off the old hits. Little Richard was back.

115- Cannes Film Festival Finally Admits It Won't Happen This Summer
 APR. 16, 2020 -- As huge theme parks and whole sports leagues around the world pause operations to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Cannes Film Festival, as the essential pillar for the film industry, has been reluctant to make an official declaration about this year's event. Today, though, organizers finally acquiesced and released a statement saying that even a delay until the summer (Cannes was scheduled to begin on May 12) would not allow the festival to go on with all its typical pageantry.
••• "We acknowledge that the postponement of the 73rd International Cannes Film Festival, initially considered for the end of June to the beginning of July, is no longer an option," reads a statement released by the organizers. Cannes "must explore all contingencies allowing to support the year of Cinema by making Cannes 2020 real, in one way or another."

115- Venice Film Festival is going forward as planned
••• With conventions, festivals, albums, concerts, and more being pushed to the fall or canceled entirely due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Venice Film Festival is sticking to its plans for September 2 - 12.
••• In a recent interview with the Italian wire service ANSA, Venice Biennial president Roberto Cicutto once again confirmed the September 2 to12 dates for the 77th Venice Film Festival and downplayed plans for a Venice without Cannes Film Festival collaboration.
••• Strict social distancing regulations forced the Cannes Film Festival to postpone this year's event, once to mid-July and a second time indefinitely. While Cannes director Thierry Fremaux suggested  that Venice Film Fest and Cannes may combine their efforts, Roberto Cicutto told ANSA that there is no "hypothesis" for a collaboration at this time. "We are going forward with our program, and if Cannes is still thinking (about their course of action) then there is no dialogue."
••• Meanwhile, Venice is exploring options to make sure its September festival can still happen, including a digital option for foreign press and potentially using cinemas. They've given themselves until May to figure all that out, which seems to be the new rule of thumb for all coronavirus-related timelines. Remember back when it was April? As the oldest film festival in the world, Venice may be at a higher risk for the coronavirus, but it is not going down without a fight.

••••Andrea Bocelli would not be stopped by a pandemic from delivering a little hope on Easter Sunday.
•••Invited by the city of Milan, the Italian opera star on Sunday morning livestreamed a solo performance on YouTube -- "Andrea Bocelli: Music for Hope" -- from the city's main cathedral, the Duomo di Milano, with 27 million people around the world tuning in.

••••"I believe in the strength of praying together. I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone whether they are believers or not truly needs right now."

••• In a statement, Bocelli expressed how much of an emotional performance this was in terms of not only the holiday but also the state of the world during this crisis. 
••••"I will cherish the emotion of this unprecedented and profound experience, of this Holy Easter which this emergency has made painful, but at the same time even more fruitful, one that will stay among my dearest memories of all time. That feeling of being at the same time alone -- as we all are in the presence of the Most High -- yet of expressing the voice of the prayer of millions of voices, has deeply impressed and moved me."

104- Germany to issue coronavirus antibody certificates
•••• Germany will issue coronavirus antibody certificates to allow quarantined to re-enter society. Researchers to test thousands for immunity as Berlin plans exit strategy for pandemic lock down.
•••• German researchers plan to introduce coronavirus 'immunity certificates' to facilitate a proper transition into post-lockdown life.
•••• The antibodies will indicate that the test participants have had the virus, have healed and are thereby ready to re-enter society and the workforce. ••••
•••• The researchers plan to test 100,000 members of the public at a time, issuing documentation to those who have overcome the virus and will use the information to determine how to properly bring the country's lockdown to and end, including re-opening schools and allowing mass gatherings.
•••• The immunity certificates are part of a research project being carried out at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig in coming weeks which will conduct blood tests to look for antibodies produced against the novel coronavius in the general public, reports German magazine Der Spiegel.
•••• "Those who are immune can then be given a vaccination certificate that would, for example, allow them to be exempt from any (lockdown-related) restrictions on their work," said Gerard Krause, the epidemiologist leading the project. 
•••• The test will give researchers a better idea of how many people have contracted the virus, with indications in Germany and elsewhere that large proportions of the population may have contracted it without knowing.
•••• The test is also an improvement on existing blood tests which would indicate a degree of immunity to coronaviruses, but not specifically to Covid-19.
•••• The project is yet to receive final approval but is expected to go ahead in April, with the first wave of results ready by the end of the month.
•••• Despite having the fifth highest number of infected cases anywhere in the world, Germany has one of the lowest death rates -- which has been at least in part credited to the government's proactive testing regime. 
•••• A German military plane yesterday took patients from eastern France, one of the worst-hit areas in the country, to Germany. A small group of patients from eastern France and Lombardy, in northern Italy, are already being treated in Germany.

104- What to Know about Viruses
The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code (mutation), and convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells.

* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies.

* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam). By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.

* HEAT melts fat; this is why it is so good to use water above 25 degrees Celsius (77 Fahrenheit) for washing hands, clothes and everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more useful.

* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.

* Any mix with 1 part BLEACH and 5 parts water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.

* The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; we cannot kill what is not alive with antibiotics, but the virus quickly disintegrate its structure with everything mentioned above.

* NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth. While the virus is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only between 3 hours (fabric and porous material), 4 hours (copper), 24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours (metal) and 72 hours (plastic). If you shake or use a feather duster on above materials, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.

* The virus molecules remain very stable in external cold or air conditioners in houses and cars. Viruses also need moisture to stay stable, especially n darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade them faster.

* UV LIGHT on any object breaks down the virus protein.

* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.

* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down the protective layer of fat on the virus.

* NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA, help. The strongest vodka has 40% alcohol, and you need 65%.

* LISTERINE helps if it has 65% alcohol.

* The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less.

* Wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, locks, knobs, switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. And when using the bathroom.

* Use MOISTURISER to humidify hands which tend to be dry from so much washing. Virus molecules can hide in the micro cracks of dry hands. The thicker the moisturizer, the better.

* Also keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.

 112- SAG-AFTRA to Adopt Dues Extension Program for Members Impacted by COVID-19 Work Loss
 LOS ANGELES (Mar. 30, 2020) -- SAG-AFTRA today announced that it has developed a program to provide dues relief for SAG-AFTRA members during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
•••• Under the program, SAG-AFTRA members who are in a position to pay their dues in full are urged to do so upon receipt of their May semi-annual dues bill. Members experiencing financial hardship resulting from work stoppages related to COVID-19 will be granted a due date extension and an installment plan for those payments. As part of that relief, no late fees will be assessed and there will be no adverse impact on members' work eligibility during this time. 
•••• SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said, "As working people, we know the great difficulties our members are facing. In order to relieve some of the financial stress so many people are dealing with at this time, the Finance Committee worked to provide much needed relief."
•••• "I also want to thank the Executive Committee for their rapid response and diligence in launching this program to quickly bring help to our membership," Carteris added.
•••• With production slowed or halted across SAG-AFTRA entertainment, television and commercials contract areas, it is crucial that the union is able to collect the greatest portion of revenue possible to ensure critical services continue without disruption. Members who can pay on time are encouraged to do so when they receive their bills. Those members who require relief may request an extension of the May 1 due date.
•••• In light of the extraordinary challenges all organizations are facing during this global pandemic, the Executive Committee also approved a resolution designating the union as being in a status of resource conservation. This status ensures that SAG-AFTRA resources are exclusively devoted to essential, core functions, such as residuals payment processing, contract negotiation and enforcement, and organizing. During this period routine and non-essential meetings and activities will be deferred.

106- Late-Night Talk Shows Canceled Tapings Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
The coronavirus outbreak is roiling the film and entertainment industries affecting Events, TV Shows, Movies, Sports, Theaters, Themparks, and more.
••The Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, which was first identified in China in December, has had sweeping effects in the public health, business, and travel sectors, among others. And while the repercussions for the entertainment industry may seem to pale in comparison to the clear threat the virus poses to human life, the ripple effects do have implications for the people around the world who make a living producing and distributing movies, music, and more.
•••• The immense and lucrative Chinese film industry was hit almost immediately as movie theaters across the country were closed and major releases were delayed. Hollywood soon began to feel the effects too, and as time passes, the impact of the coronavirus on the global film and entertainment industries will certainly grow.
•••• Consequences of the outbreak on these industries could range from lowered attendance at film festivals and disruptions in film distribution to delayed or canceled movie releases and concert dates to curtailed on-location film shoots. Financial ramifications will likely be felt by studios, filmmakers, theater owners, and more for months or even years.
•••• Things are moving quickly as Americans respond to the burgeoning coronavirus crisis. With public health officials warning that the best way to contain the spread of the new virus is to disband large public gatherings, many pop culture events are being delayed or canceled -- from movie premieres sports championships to music festivals.
•••• Beyond late-night, Hollywood has acutely felt the impact of the pandemic this week as a slew of major events scheduled for the comings months have either been postponed canceled outright in accordance with public health recommendations against large gatherings where the virus could easily be spread. Studios and agencies across town have also widely implemented work-from-home policies to protect their employees, and a number of film and TV productions have been postponed or delayed

101- L.A. Marathon taking precautions against coronavirus as 27,000 entrants expected - By Gary Sunkin
•••• On Sunday March 8th, the 35th annual Los Angeles marathon takes place. "All weekend activities are scheduled to take place as planned," a recent statement from the Los Angeles Marathon read. "Safety is always our first priority and our operations team has been in consistent dialogue with local authorities and monitoring developments related to all safety aspects of the marathon, including coronavirus."

•••• Health officials said the risk to exposure at the local marathon -- which will pass through Echo Park, Los Feliz and Silver Lake -- is "low" at this time.
••
••••
The LA Marathon (formerly the City of Los Angeles Marathon) is an annual running event held each spring in Los Angeles, California. The 26.219 mile (42.195 km) footrace, inspired by the success of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, has been contested every year since 1986.
•••• Over the course of its 33-year history, the LA Marathon has become one of the largest marathons in the country with more than 25,000 participants, thousands of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of spectators.
•••• The historic race, which has seen unprecedented growth since introducing the iconic "Stadium to Sea" course, draws runners from all over the world to take a tour of Los Angeles running past every major landmark. The "Stadium to the Sea" route was not the original route: the original route ended at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and a route around the turn of the millennium both started and ended in Downtown Los Angeles.
••••
••••
According to the marathon's website, more than 27,000 athletes from all 50 states and more than 78 countries will set out from Dodger Stadium in an effort to reach the finish line in Santa Monica.

Coronavirus Prevention
••County health officials and race organizers said that they have taken steps to try to prevent the spread of coronavirus during Sunday's L.A. Marathon, including deferring entrants from countries deemed to have a high risk of exposure to the disease.
••• A "very small number" of entrants from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Italy, South Korea and Iran have been deferred.
••• Entrants being screened at airports will be quarantined and won't be able to participate in the race if they show symptoms.
•••• Marathon officials said they deferred entries for people who live in countries where the U.S. Department of State has issued a "do not travel to" advisory, although they said it was a "very small number" of entrants, about 0.06% of the field. Entrants with a home address in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Italy, South Korea and Iran have been deferred.
•••• Murphy Reinschreiber, the chief operating officer for The McCourt Foundation, which runs the marathon, said the deferrals will be honored for next year's race.
•••• On race day, officials said they will have an increased number of hand- sanitizer stations at the race expo, start line, along the route and finish festival. They are also telling participants to follow public safety measures, including frequently washing their hands, using hand sanitizer and to stay home if they feel ill.

115- Homage and Honorary Golden Bear 2020 for Helen Mirren
•••• The 70th Berlin International Film Festival honored Oscar-winner Dame Helen Mirren with its Homage and awarded her the Honorary Golden Bear (German: Goldener Bär) for her lifetime achievement.
•••• The award ceremony included a screening of "The Queen" (2006, dir: Stephen Frears).
•••• With the Honorary Golden Bear, the Berlinale pays tribute to important figures in the world of film. The award is presented for an exceptional artistic career and is given to the guest of honour of the Homage.
•••• Not only is Helen Mirren one of the world's most renowned actresses, she was also one of the youngest ever to join the famed Royal Shakespeare Company. Over the decades, her range as an actress have been amply demonstrated in a wide variety of genres.
•••• Among the many accolades Mirren has received the 2007 Academy Award for Best Actress and Golden Globe for her performance in The Queen. In addition to many international film prizes, her stage work has also been honored with the leading theatre tributes &endash; the Olivier Award, Tony and Drama Desk Awards. In 2003, Helen Mirren was awarded the title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her services to drama.
•••• After working mainly in theatre, including with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Mirren's first major film role was in Michael Powell's 1969 comedy Age of Consent. She subsequently made her mark in 1980's "The Long Good Friday" (dir: John Mackenzie), playing the assertive girlfriend of a top gangster. Her portrayal of Georgina in Peter Greenaway's "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover" (1989) was also legendary. Beginning in the 1990s, Helen Mirren increasingly expanded and diversified her roles in both film and television, among them Robert Altman's 2001 Gosford Park (Berlinale 2002). Her flair for comedy was once again in evidence with "Calendar Girls" (2003, dir: Nigel Cole). Between 1991 and 2006, she headed up the seven instalments of the TV series "Prime Suspect" as police superintendent Jane Tennison.
••••In "The Last Station" (2009), directed by Michael Hoffmann, she played Leo Tolstoy's wife Sofya. She was at the Berlinale in 2015, alongside co-star Ryan Reynolds, with "Woman in Gold" (dir: Simon Curtis). Since then, she has appeared onscreen in "Eye in the Sky" (2015, dir: Gavin Hood) and "The Leisure Seeker" (2017, dir: Paolo Virzì) among others.
••••Mirren gives another terrific performance in the thriller "The Good Liar" (dir: Bill Condon), co-starring with Ian McKellen, which recently opened theatrically in Germany and will also be shown in the Homage section.

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, UK / France / Netherlands 1989, director: Peter Greenaway

115- "My Salinger Year," kicked off the Berlin Int'l Film Festival - 18 films are vying for the Golden Bear By Gordon Talbot
BERLIN -- The 70th annual Berlin International Film Festival known as "the Berlinale" is currently taking place from 20 February to 1 March 2020. It is the first under the leadership of new Berlin Film Festival heads, business administration director Mariette Rissenbeek and artistic director Carlo Chatrian who took over from Dieter Kosslick last year.
•••The Berlinale is a unique place of artistic exploration and entertainment. It is one of the largest public film festivals in the world, attracting tens of thousands of visitors from around the globe each year. For the film industry and the media, the eleven days in February are also one of the most important events in the annual calendar and an indispensable trading forum
•••• The Festival got off to a somber start after news of a racially motivated mass shooting Wednesday night in the Frankfurt neighboring German city of Hanau rocked the country.
••••"I wanted to say something about the 70th anniversary of the Berlinale, but events in Hanau hit us all hard," said Berlinale executive director Mariette Rissenbeek.
••••Artistic director Carlo Chatrian added: "We stand here as a community. When we sit in the cinema, there is no distinction between class or religion. Cinema brings us together."
•••The opening night kicked off with the screening of Philippe Falardeau's "My Salinger Year," starring Sigourney Weaver and Margaret Qualley, who attended the premiere.
••••Philippe Falardeau also paid respects to the Hanau shootings, which claimed 11 lives, telling the audience, "I want to convey my unflinching solidarity with the German people in these troubled times," adding his hope that the film might "give you a little light."
••••Hosting the show, actor Samuel Finzi offered an often politically pointed speech that focused largely on the plight of immigrants and on his own life as a Bulgarian native in Berlin.
••••"We shouldn't isolate ourselves and build walls," Finzi said.
"Perhaps there is someone trying to come here that will be a great German hope. Cinema is about shared experiences."
••••Finzi replaced long-time host Anke Engelke, a Canadian-German comedian.
••••Some pointed out the change in tone between last year and this year's ceremony. Dieter Kosslick was known for his larger-than-life personality, and his antics seemed to be missed on stage, in contrast to the more serious, nature of the festival's new co-directors.
••••Later in the evening, German culture minister Monika Grütters also took the stage and delivered a rousing anti-terror message that brought the crowd to its feet  -- one of the ceremony's few highlights. 
••• Also in attendance was Johnny Depp who arrived at the Berlin Film Festival Friday to support the film "Minamata," in which he plays celebrated war photographer W. Eugene Smith. In the film, based on real events, Smith is pitted against a powerful corporation responsible for poisoning with mercury the people of Minamata in Japan in 1971.
•••• At the film's press conference, Depp said he had a "strange fascination" with Smith and his photography, which was enhanced when he'd "read a bit about his life and what he'd gone through, what he'd experienced, what he'd sacrificed to capture those moments, to capture those photos."
••••Over the next 10 days, the Berlinale will screen 18 films that are vying for the Golden Bear, among them Kelly Reichardt's "First Cow," Mohammad Rasoulof's "There Is No Evil," Natalia Meta's "The Intruder," and Burhan Qurbani's "Berlin Alexanderplatz."

LOS ANGELES (Feb. 5, 2020) -- SAG-AFTRA mourns the loss of SAG Life Achievement honoree Kirk Douglas, who passed away today at the age of 103. 
•••• Douglas' career spanned more than six decades and more than 80 films, including Spartacus, Lust for Life, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Man From Snowy River and The Final Countdown. A union member since 1942, Douglas was honored with the 35th SAG Life Achievement Award in 1998.
•••• "One of the last remaining legends of Hollywood's golden age, Kirk Douglas was an extraordinary actor. He was also a powerful voice who helped end the blacklist in our industry." said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. "With his extensive body of work, he made an indelible mark on cinema. But, as a true humanitarian, his lifelong dedication to quietly supporting worthy causes may have made an even greater impact. Kirk will be deeply missed and we send our condolences to his family, friends and fans."
••••Douglas was a generous philanthropist, donating millions of dollars to schools, hospitals and facilities that help the homeless. He also remembered his fellow performers. Douglas and his wife Anne gave more than $40 million to the Motion Picture & Television Fund over their lifetimes and were responsible for the creation of a care facility for Alzheimer's patients. In 2015, in honor of Douglas' 99th birthday, the MPTF announced that it would build a new facility to be named in the actor's honor.

•••• This was set to be the first edition of the Grammy Awards that the new Recording Academy President Deborah Dugan would have presided over; however, she was relieved of her duties as President and CEO and placed on administrative leave from the organization on January 16, 2020.

Annual Critics' Choice Awards, January 12
The night's top prize for best picture went to "Once Upon A Time ... In Hollywood."
Hollywood gathered Sunday night at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, to celebrate the best in television and film at the 25th annual Critics' Choice Awards, hosted by Taye Diggs.
••• Eddie Murphy received a lifetime achievement award, while Kristen Bell, who was honored with the #SeeHer Award, moved the audience with an inspiring speech.
•••• "My immediate reaction is always to answer with words like 'strong' and 'brave' and 'powerful,' but if I'm being honest, to me, being a woman is not about being brave or being strong or being powerful. It's not about being anything specific," Bell said. "It's just about giving yourself permission to be the things that you already are, which seems very easy, but it is not. Because women have been conditioned to fit into boxes; usually tiny, pretty, sparkly boxes with bows on the them."

2020 Rose Bowl Game will kick off January 1, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.••••
•••• Since 1890, the Tournament of Roses has produced America's New Year Celebration, bringing the traditions of the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game to Pasadena and the world for 130 years.
•••• The 106th Rose Bowl Game between Washington Huskies vs Ohio State Buckeyes and presented by Northwestern Mutual will take place on January 1, 2020, at the Rose Bowl Stadium and will feature top teams from the Pac-12 and Big Ten known as "The Granddaddy" of Them All. The Rose Bowl Game is the oldest bowl game and kicked off a myriad college football legacies in 1902.
•••• The first Tournament of Roses football game, which was the first post-season football game in the nation, was staged at Tournament Park on January 1, 1902. The game matched the West Coast's Stanford against Midwestern Michigan. (The teams would later become members of today's Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences, respectively.) Michigan routed Stanford, 49-0, prompting the football contest to be replaced with Roman-style chariot races inspired by the literary classic Ben-Hur. Football was permanently reinstated as part of the Tournament's traditions in 1916.
•••• The exclusive agreement among the Tournament of Roses Association, the Big Ten Conference and the Pac-12 Conference was born in 1946, and the first game played under the agreement took place on January 1, 1947. The pact is the oldest intercollegiate postseason bowl agreement between two major conferences in the United States.
•••• This collegiate classic has been the occasion of many firsts. The Rose Bowl Game was the first local radio broadcast of an East-West bowl game in 1926, the first transcontinental radio broadcast of a sporting event in 1927, the first local telecast of a college football game in 1948, the first national telecast of a college football game in 1952, the first coast-to-coast color telecast of a collegiate football game in 1962, and the first College Football Playoff Semifinal in 2015.

2019 celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the World Wide Web
•••• In 1989 the world's largest physics laboratory, CERN was a hive of ideas and information stored on multiple incompatible computers. Tim Berners-Lee envisioned a unifying structure for linking information across different computers and wrote an proposal in 1989 called "Information Management: A Proposal." By 1991 this vision of universal connectivity had become the Word Wide Web.

"Suppose all information stored on computers everywhere were linked . Suppose I could program my computer to create a space in which everything could be linked to everything."
-Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web

•••• Tim Berners-Lee wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. The browser was released to the general public in August 1991. The World Wide Web has been central to the development of the Information Age and is the primary tool billions of people use to interact on the Internet.

Much like the music itself, the film tells unforgettable stories of hardships and joys shared by everyday people.

107- Country Artist Jerry Wallace remembered by his friends, and fans, but not by the Country Music Association By Josie Cory
2010/Imagespeople/JerryWallaceThanksObit108w.jpgThe CMA failed to pay tribute the year Jerry Wallace passed away by mentioning his name during the 2008 Country Music Award ceremonies. Jerry's musical gift was enjoyed by millions of fans and this writer felt the unfairness to this artist by the omission of his mention during the CMA's "In Memoriam." What a minor effort it would have been for the Country Music Association to acknowledge this gifted singer with a well deserved albeit small credit.
••• What brought Jerry Wallace to mind is Ken Burns' recent broadcast of his 8 episode "Country Music" film, that dives deep into the roots and evolvement of country music with never-before-seen footage and photographs. Much like the music itself, the film tells unforgettable stories of hardships and joys shared by everyday people. Remarkable stories of the people and places behind a true American art form as the documentary, chronicles country music's early days, from Southern Appalachia's songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to the rollicking Western swing of Texas, California's honky-tonks and Nashville's "Grand Ole Opry."
••• A documentary eight years in the making and and looked forward to by many with anticipation, the film did not fail to impress. Millions joined the viewing sharing the sentiment of Meredith Vieira when she stated "I watch all things Burns."

First Country Music album by 25 great country music artists
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
• • The original Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum opened on Music Row (Music Square East and Division Street) on April 1, 1967. The LP record album was produced and released to help honor those artists pictured on front.
• • On behalf of the Country Music Association, it was Martin Gilbert and Troy Cory with the help of Jerry Wallace who selected both the Nashville recordings on the album, which included, non-Nashvillians: Lefty Frizzell, Tex Ritter, and Merle Travis.
• • As Jerry put it, "to add variety to the 25 all-Nashville related group of singers." Jerry along with Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys songs were not included on the album, which was one of the reasons why each track was edited to add a couple of non-Nashville country artists.
• •
Jerry's big hits in the 60s were,"Primrose Lane" was a top five million-seller, "There She Goes," - "Shutters And Boards" - "In The Misty Moonlight" - "Life's Gone And Slipped Away" all Top 20 singles.
• • Jerry was a big help to me at the time when I was promoting my Nashville single, "I Put your Picture Back in my Wallet," and "This One's On the House," said Troy Cory. We hit all the radio stations in town while he tried to show me how to pluck a record. An introduction by Jerry meant a guaranteed sure "play with his DJ buddies."
"Country Doctor Prescribes City Music"
• • Many musical evenings were spent at our Hollywood Hills home, when Jerry brought his musician friends like, Freddie Hart, Ray Peterson, the 'Queen Mother of Nashville,' Mae Axton, Stuart Hamlin, Chill Wills, and Hoyt Axton. It was during that time Jerry became the co-producer of the Country Hall of Fame LP record album, and helped in the choosing of the group of country stars selected as "Hall of Fame" honoraries.
vra681200LPDocCory108w.jpg• • Troy's Specialty Records and Mercury Records chart hits in the 60s, included: "Little Pink Toe," "Just One More Chance," and "Suzy McGregor." Jerry's music producer, Joe Johnson, the owner of Challenge Records, died of the results from a fall from a 7-story Nashville building. Troy later was on the BBC label.
• • In 1961, the CMA announced the creation of the Country Music Hall of Fame. The first three inductees, Jimmie Rodgers, Fred Rose and Hank Williams, were announced at a CMA banquet in November of said year. Bronze plaques, with the facial likeness and a thumbnail biography of each new member were cast in bas relief. They were unveiled at the Grand Ole Opry by Ernest Tubb. These plaques, and those for subsequent Hall of Fame inductees, were displayed in the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville until 1967.

Zheng Xiaolong, chairman of the jury said at the meeting that the Magnolia Award judges are under heavy pressure this year. He said, "As this year's TV series first broadcast on major video website also joined the selection of Chinese TV drama, the Magnolia Award considers more works with various subjects.

In itself a notable culture-historical feat, in view of China's closed door policies of the late 70s and well into the 80s. The PRC's administrative climate in comparison is much less restrictive now and China's open door policy enables many entertainers to introduce themselves to the populace Chinese audiences.

Television Internatinal Magazine Founder, Sam Donaldson.
Samuel Andrew Donaldson became interested in broadcasting at an early age and, after graduating from New Mexico Military institute, majored in telecommunications at Texas Western. He immediately began working at local stations as a disc jockey, announcer and interviewer. While still in El Paso, he had his first taste of television, working as an announcer in the region's first television station.
•••• While attending graduate school at the University of Southern California, Donaldson met publisher Al Preiss, and they both formed TELEvisionFILM Magazine. Both seeing where the international television market was heading, the name was changed to Television International Magazine.
•••• In his book "Hold On Mr. President" Donaldson writes .... After getting my B.A., I went to the University of Southern California for a year of postgraduate work. This time I worked hard but didn't stick to it. Instead, I started a magazine in Hollywood all with five thousand dollars and a friend named al Preiss. We went first-class, letter press printing instead of offset, four-color ads instead of black and white. It soon became evident that we needed fifty thousand dollars, not five." Eventually Donaldson sold out to Al Preiss who continued publishing the magazine until his death in 1986. In 1987 The Cory's purchased the Magazine fro,m Al's widow Sylvia Preiss.

Television International Magazine Co-Founder, Al Preiss.
Born in Waseca, Minnesota, Preiss began his career in the newsroom at WCCO-TV in Minneapolis as a sportscaster. He later moved to Los Angeles, where he began teaching television courses at the University of Southern California.
••• It was there, in 1955 when Al Preiss had a vision -- a vision that materialized in 1956, when he and his colleague Sam Donaldson launched TELEvisionFilm Magazine.
••• Both Al and Sam had an honest conviction that, "the television film industry had reached a stage where it needed a national publication that would analyze and put into focus -- the news, issues and problems which particularly concern the production and distribution of film for television.
••• When Al Preiss died in August 1986, the television industry lost an untiring advocate and a giant of a good friend. The tall, wonderfully amiable publisher truly seemed to do it all -- attending nearly every press conference, speech, convention and reception, and was never seen without his trademark clear plastic briefcase. You turned around at these functions and there was Preiss, taking notes, talking animatedly, telling stories, doing his job. One that he not only loved, but felt was necessary and important. He did it all with the help of his charming wife of 25 years, Sylvia, who was editor of the magazine during the years of 1985 and 1986.
••• The controlling interest of the magazine, with all of its archival history was purchased in 1987 by the Cory's.
