Herzog has created his own guild system, of a sort, with the Rogue Film School , a rough, informal course, among other things, in “guerrilla filmmaking.” Stealing cameras is not ruled out. But you’ll have to learn the technical stuff on your own. What matters, most, Herzog says, is that filmmakersread, read, read, read, read.” These are directors who have borrowed from other directors and films, and also from books, music, painting, etc., driven by an obsessive and persistent desire to learn. And you’ll find them all in the supercut above, in which Tarantino, Anderson, Herzog, and other “master filmmakers” like Scorsese, Coppola, Fellini, Welles, and more offer short, yet profound pieces of advice to aspirants. We begin with Tarantino, who argues that passion is all you need to make a great film. “You dont need to go to school” or know any of the technical stuff, but you do need to apprentice yourself, with pure devotion and tenacity, to cinema.

Director Matt Reeves has set himself a high bar with War For The Planet Of The Apes , which follows ape leader Caesar and his comrades in an intensifying conflict with an army of humans. With much of the same cast and crew from the previous film returning - writer Mark Bomback, ape actors Andy Serkis and Terry Notary - we're cautiously confident that War will be one of the smartest, most emotionally satisfying summer movies of 2017. 1. Blade Runner 2049 What a difference approximately 35 years make. If, back in 1982, you'd asked anyone involved with Blade Runner whether they thought there'd be a sequel, they'd probably have asked you to get off their lawn. But here we are, worryingly close to the year in which Ridley Scott's sci-fi thriller was set (that's 2019), and along comes its belated follow-up. We have to admit, one of the things we loved about Blade Runner is that it stood all by itself, unsullied by sequels, prequels or remakes, its bleak future world undimmed by the numerous movies, TV shows and games that have freely borrowed from it.

It's not their fault they've been abused. It's not because they made a bad decision, says lead author Nathan Spreng, assistant professor of human development at Cornell University. There are biological reasons why these abuses have occurred, and we're trying to get a handle on that. Emotions leave older adults open to being swindled Older adults are having a harder time navigating these tough social situations. We need to start treating this as a medical problem and not a societal one. Previous studies have shown that family members are the most common financial abusers. In the current study, published in the Journals of Gerontology , a man continued to steal from his grandmother even after she confronted him. A daughter charged $2,000 to a study participant's account without permission. In another instance, a son's girlfriend borrowed $4,000 and never paid it back.

Manafort...has engaged in a series of puzzling real estate deals in New York City over the past 11 years. Real estate and law enforcement experts say some of these transactions fit a pattern used in money laundering ; together, they raise questions about Manaforts activities in the New York City property market while he also was consulting for business and political leaders in the former Soviet Union. Between 2006 and 2013, Manafort bought three homes in New York City, paying the full amount each time, so there was no mortgage. Then, between April 2015 and January 2017 a time span that included his service with the Trump campaign Manafort borrowed about $12 million against those three New York City homes: one in Trump Tower, one in Soho, and one in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Manaforts New York City transactions follow a pattern: Using shell companies, he purchased the homes in all-cash deals, then transferred the properties into his own name for no money and then took out hefty mortgages against them, according to property records.

BEIJING: A virtuous son or a vigilante murderer: the case of a man who killed a debt collector in defence of his mother has sparked heated debate in China, as an appeal court decides whether to uphold his life sentence. Social media erupted after 22-year-old Yu Huan was convicted for stabbing to death a man who had beaten and humiliated his parent. In a country where law enforcement is weak and frequently seen as corrupt, some web users saw his actions as a proportionate and justified response when police failed to step in. Others have insisted that "the law is the law" and Yu should serve his full term. The public fury has reached such a fever pitch that the Supreme People's Procuratorate, China's highest investigation agency, has opened a rare probe into the incident. 'Don't use your fists' Court documents reveal that Yu Huan's mother, Su Yinxia had borrowed more than one million yuan (RM641,437) for her auto parts manufacturing company from a local real estate developer.

In a 2007 deposition, Trump admitted he had borrowed “a small amount” from his father’s estate: ‘I think it was like in the $9 million range.'” During the time that Fred Trump earned his fortune, his brother and Donald’s uncle John G. Trump was working with the mad scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), de-coding brilliant engineer Nikola Tesla’s stolen papers. MIT is a central hub of science for the military industrial complex, as we’ve scratched the surface of in past articles . Researcher and author Peter A. Kirby thoroughly exposed the root of geoengineering (spraying the skies) in MIT, and his latest article can be found here . John G.’s association to Tesla was summarized by Big Think : “A few days after Tesla died on January 8th, 1943, his possessions were seized by officials from the amazingly-named government Office of Alien Property.

If you assume any rate of advancement in [artificial intelligence], we will be left behind by a lot ,” he said at a conference last June. The solution he proposed was a “direct cortical interface”—essentially a layer of artificial intelligence inside the brain—that could enable humans to reach higher levels of function. Mr. Musk has discussed financing Neuralink primarily himself, including with capital borrowed against equity in his other companies, according to a person briefed on the plans. Neuralink has also discussed a possible investment from Founders Fund, the venture firm started by Peter Thiel, with whom Mr. Musk co-founded payments company PayPal, according to people familiar with the matter. The Verge notes that Kernel is upfront about the years of medical research necessary to better understand the human brain and pioneer new surgery techniques, software methods, and implant devices that could make a consumer brain-computer interface a reality.

Despite some similar elements, it doesnt look half as good as its smaller brother, the Macan. You can tell the plug-in S E-Hybrid model from other 2015 Cayennes by its acid green brake callipers (a lurid hue borrowed from the 918 Spyder) and the green background to its badges. Image 23 of 27 Image 23 of 27 The GTS shares much of its front end with the Cayenne Turbo but adds a Sport Design package comprising thicker side sills and flared arches. Unique 20-inch black alloy wheels are another GTS signifier, as are the badges on the front doors. The GTS gets the most distinctive interior, too, with ‘GTSembossed Alcantara and leather sports seats and very nicely executed stitching on the dashboard. The whole thing can be ordered with an appropriately loud ‘go fasterpaintjob as well. 27 Mar 2017

Our weekly look back at Wanderers teams from bygone days has unearthed this one of the team celebrating winning the Manx Cup in August, 1988. The caption at the time said: "Gary Brown's lucky boots worked a treat for Wanderers goal star John Thomas again last night. But the Bolton reserve, son of club coach Mick Brown, still refuses to let top scorer Thomas keep the size sevens. Thomas borrowed Brown's boots for the first time last season and scored five goals in three successive games – including a hat-trick against Newport. And last night, when he was uncomfortable in his own new pair, cadged them again." If you have any memories of that game email them to neil.bonnar@nqnw.co.uk

LantuAg was built for a Manila-based surf shop owner, Bjorn Pabon, who has serious ties to the donor bike. As a youth, Bjorn and his mate used to sneak rides on a ‘borrowed1984 XL. And decades later, when he was feeling nostalgic, he decided to search out that lost ride. It took tons of effort, but the old XL finally turned up—leaning on a porch post, dead and rotting. The carcass quickly found its way into Revolt’s shop and the eight-month rebuild began. Everything from the motor, electrics, wheels and chassis needed a thorough going over, but after seeing the results, we figure the efforts were worth it. The little Honda has a whole new 12v CDI system installed, retrofitted forks, an all-new, hooped subframe unit and a lower profile fuel cell. Because of Bjorn’s ties to the world of waves, Revolt also added a removable rack to accommodate Bjorn’s quiver, for trips through the bush to his favorite, hidden point breaks.

Less than two kilometers away, only a few civilians venture out of their homes as missiles fly overhead, and IS gunfire pounds at Iraqi helicopters in the air. Even this close to New Mosul, civilians and soldiers say they don't know exactly what happened. One small family, Mohammad, 50, and his wife, Atheel, 40, invite us into their borrowed home, saying they, too, don't know what happened in New Mosul, but they do know what it is like to survive an airstrike. This is the story of the day their home was hit, and the day they lost everything. Mohammad: It was a holiday about six months ago, before Iraqi forces entered Mosul. We had lived in our home on the east side of Mosul for eight years. We had finished lunch and my wife was in the kitchen cleaning up. I heard an airstrike hit the university across the street. I thought, "Thank God, it didn't hit us.

If this is the case, it means there will be no replacement for the V8-engined AMG CLS 63 . This will leave space for the arrival of an AMG GT four-door , which is an entirely different model that is inspired by the GT Concept of the Geneva motor show . The GT four-door will use a twin-turbocharged V8 engine - borrowed from either the AMG GT or E 63 . The CLS and AMG GT four-door both get the same number of doors, but as the spotted development car shows, the CLS will have a less aggressive exterior and more defined bootlid. Body proportions look near identical to those of the current car, meaning the CLS will also be smaller than the GT four-door. The changes will be evolutionary both outside and in, with the new E-Class offering the best insight into how the CLS’s details will look. Some of the semi-autonomous driving technology of the E-Class will be carried over to the CLS, possibly including Speed Limit Pilot, which automatically adjusts the speed of the vehicle in relation to posted speed limits, and Active Lane Change Assist, which is able to autonomously perform a lane change.
