From Russian YouTube to spinning on the spot: Hollywood’s tricks to playing drunk
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 08:00:26 GMT

Gone is the ‘do it for real’ approach – the stars of Mank and Another Round take a more sober approach to acting inebriated

Were there an Oscar for best on-screen drunk (which there really should be), it would be a close-run thing this year. My money would be on Aubrey Plaza, who provides a magnificent display of wastedness in her new movie, Black Bear. Playing a neurotic indie actor at the end of her tether, she spends half the movie stumbling, lurching, wailing and losing her dignity. She wasn’t actually drunk, of course. This is the great challenge: acting drunk when you’re sober is no easier than acting sober when you’re drunk. To get into the right frame of unsteadiness, Plaza would spin round until almost throwing up just before the scene. That’s commitment.

Hear me out: why Monster Trucks isn’t a bad movie
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 07:06:25 GMT

The latest in our series of writers sticking up for reviled films is a defense of the ‘toyetic’ action fantasy flop that puts monsters in … trucks

There is nothing pure about Monster Trucks. It is not a work of art born from some noble truth. It is a product – brightly-colored content meant to generate toys. The idea originated around 2013 when Adam Goodman, then president of Paramount’s Motion Picture Group, watched his four-year-old son playing with toy trucks. By 2014, Paramount issued a press release calling their new title Monster Trucks a “movie which has great toyetic appeal.” This unapologetic ploy to sell plastic made for an ignoble start to Monster Trucks, and things wouldn’t improve. The general concept – monster trucks that have real, but friendly, monsters inside them – didn’t inspire much confidence outside of “toyetic appeal,” either.

20 years of Observer Food Monthly: Nigel Slater’s five star ingredients
Mon, 19 Apr 2021 07:00:25 GMT

Two decades ago, beetroot was more likely to be found in a pickle jar and cauliflower under a mornay sauce. Here are five foods that had a ‘moment’ in the past twenty years

What and how we eat has steadily changed over the 20 years since OFM first came on the scene. New ingredients have appeared, old ones given a new role, some have stayed while others have faded into obscurity. We may well roll our eyes at food fashions, but it remains a fact that sometimes an ingredient will slowly shift, albeit briefly, into the limelight.

Part of this change has included a reappraisal of the fruit and vegetables we eat and their place in our everyday cooking. Encouraged by farmers’ markets and seed merchants, some older varieties that had slipped out of popularity have returned, particularly for those with allotments and vegetable gardens.

Merck scraps two treatments for hospitalized COVID-19 patients, will focus on antiviral for non-hospitalized patients
Thu, 15 Apr 2021 19:48:22 GMT

Shares of Merck & Co. were up 0.1% in premarket trading on Thursday after the drug company said the oral antiviral COVID-19 treatment it is developing with Ridgeback Biotherapeutics did not help hospitalized patients in a mid-stage clinical trial. The companies now plan to test molnupiravir in non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients in a Phase 3 trial, with plans to file for emergency authorization in the second half of the year. They are also planning to see if the experimental therapy works for post-exposure prophylaxis. In a separate news release, Merck said it is discontinuing MK-7110 as a treatment for patients hospitalized with COVID-19, saying that the Food and Drug Administration's request for additional clinical information would push the launch into 2022. "Merck is now focusing its efforts on advancing molnupiravir, which, as an oral medicine for outpatient use, represents a promising potential new approach, and on accelerating production of Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine," Dr. Roy Baynes, chief medical officer for Merck Research Laboratories, said in the release. Merck's stock has gained 6.6% since the start of the year, while the broader S&P 500 is up 9.8%.

Contained confinement
Fri, 09 Apr 2021 14:01:00 +0200

ESA-sponsored medical doctor Nick Smith snapped this photo of the storage containers at Concordia research station in Antarctica shortly before sunset, 8 April 2021. The dark blue line at the horizon is the shadow of the Earth.

The containers store food, recycling and the scientific samples of blood, saliva, and stool that Nick routinely takes. The units on the right are part of the summer camp, during which researchers sleep in tents. 

Science for the benefit of space exploration does not only happen off planet. While some studies require the weightless isolation of the International Space Station, Antarctica also provides the right conditions for investigating the consequences of spaceflight, and it is a little easier to access than space.

Part of the 17th crew to spend an entire year at one of the most remote bases in the world, Nick and 11 other crew members have taken up the adventurous challenge in the backdrop of a pandemic to continue important research that is furthering space exploration.

Located at the mountain plateau called Dome C, Concordia is a collaboration between the French Polar Institute and the Italian Antarctic programme, and is one of only three bases that is inhabited all year long. 

As well as offering around nine months of complete isolation, Concordia’s location at 3233 m altitude means the crew experience chronic hypobaric hypoxia – lack of oxygen in the brain.

During the Antarctic winter, the crew of up to 15 people also endure four months of complete darkness: the sun disappears from May and is not seen again until late August.

Temperatures can drop to –80°C in the winter, with a yearly average of –50°C. The temperature at the time of this image was -65°C, with wind chill at about -80°C. To put this cold into perspective, it was so cold that the camera battery died within ten minutes. 

As a station set in Earth’s harshest space, Concordia is an ideal stand-in for studying the human psychological and physiological effects of extreme cold, isolation and darkness. For the rest of the year, Nick is poking and prodding the crew for samples to study changes in mood, immune systems, blood cells, and gut health.

The taste of sunny days: what makes cider the drink of British summer?
Mon, 29 Mar 2021 15:18:25 GMT

For food writer Suzy Pope, summer brings with it walks to the beach and picnics in the park – but whatever the occasion, a sip of cider makes it all the sweeter

As the weather turns balmy and folk meander to open spaces for some much-needed vitamin D, my mind leaves the warming hum of a smoky whisky behind and craves something cold and dripping with condensation. Every summer, I start drinking cider – and I’m not alone. What is it about the zingy, apple-based drink that sends the saliva glands into overdrive as soon as the sun comes out?

Before I was a food and drink writer, I was a student. I didn’t think about the terroir of grape-growing, the nose of whisky or what wine to pair with raw tilapia. On sunny days, I just thought about the most enjoyable way to quench my thirst. Now, the clank of a metal bottle opener and the hiss of a cold Thatchers Cider opening is enough to bring me back to the Meadows in Edinburgh, for a post-lecture picnic with friends. Stretched out on the grass as the rays warm my skin, the air is filled with the smoky smell of barbecue.

English Astronaut vlog: space food and fitness

ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer is preparing for his mission to the International Space Station, scheduled for launch in late 2021. This mission is known as Cosmic Kiss.

 In this video log from his current training base at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, USA, Matthias shows a space food tasting session and shares how astronauts maintain their fitness for a safe return to Earth.

Astronauts exercise for two hours a day, six days a week while on the International Space Station to combat muscle and bone loss caused by an extended stay in microgravity. Diet also plays an important role in maintaining physical and mental wellbeing.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, all personnel are required to adhere to special safety precautions while training. These include wearing a mask – as seen in the clip.

Matthias will continue his training for Cosmic Kiss at partner agencies around the world over the next weeks and months. Stay tuned for further footage of his training and experiences.

German Astronauten-Vlog/ Matthias Maurer: Weltraumnahrung und Fitness

ESA-Astronaut Matthias Maurer bereitet sich auf seine Mission zur Internationalen Raumstation vor, die Ende 2021 starten soll. Diese Mission trägt den Namen "Cosmic Kiss".

In diesem Video-Log von seiner aktuellen Trainingsbasis im Johnson Space Center der NASA in Houston, Texas, USA, zeigt Matthias eine Verkostung von Weltraumnahrung und erzählt, wie Astronauten ihre Fitness für eine sichere Rückkehr zur Erde aufrechterhalten.

Astronauten trainieren während ihres Aufenthalts auf der Internationalen Raumstation an sechs Tagen in der Woche täglich zwei Stunden, um dem Muskel- und Knochenschwund entgegenzuwirken, der durch den langen Aufenthalt in der Schwerelosigkeit verursacht wird. Auch die Ernährung spielt eine wichtige Rolle bei der Erhaltung des körperlichen und geistigen Wohlbefindens.

Aufgrund der aktuellen Situation mit COVID-19 müssen alle Mitarbeiter beim Training besondere Sicherheitsvorkehrungen beachten. Dazu gehört auch das Tragen einer Maske - wie im Video zu sehen.

Matthias wird in den nächsten Wochen und Monaten sein Training für seine Cosmic Kiss-Mission bei Partneragenturen auf der ganzen Welt fortsetzen. Bleibt dran - Wir werden mit weiterem Filmmaterial über sein Training und seine Erfahrungen berichten.
