Cannes 2017: New movie about Jean-Luc Godard, from ‘The Artist’ director, shows auteurs can be funny too 29.5.2017 LA Times: Commentary

A movie about Jean-Luc Godard? At the Cannes Film Festival? While the master himself is still around?

Michel Hazanavicius can imagine what people think. I mean, he's heard what people think.

Godard himself called it a “stupid, stupid idea.” May as well say the French New Wave was a waste of time,...

Utah officials are trying to figure out who owns various water sources in Salt Lake City 29.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
When Lance Anderson got a water-rights summons in the mail recently, he thought it might be a winning ticket. Like many of his neighbors, Anderson said he heard water rights were valuable commodities, which made him wonder if he could claim one near the east Salt Lake City apartment complex he co-owns with Craig Robinson. But, as was also true for most of his neighbors, there was no water right. About 35,000 property owners in the downtown area and on the east bench have received court summons r...

Friday Talking Points -- A Week Of Bad Numbers For Trump 27.5.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
  President Donald Trump went on a tour of foreign countries this week, and World War III did not erupt. So things could have been worse. Trump bumbled his way across the Middle East and Europe, providing the media with plenty of amusing stories to write. Much of this centered on physicality, for unknown reasons. Consider some of the Trump news over the course of the week: Trump bowed to Saudi king after criticizing Barack Obama for doing the same thing. His wife and daughter bared their heads in Saudi Arabia after Trump criticized Michelle Obama for doing the same thing. Trump awkwardly participated in a sword dance. Melania Trump not only refused to hold her husband’s hand, she actually swatted it away when it was offered ― on more than one occasion. Trump shoved his way to the front of a photo-op in Europe. And someone finally defeated the “ Trumpshake ” ― the propensity Trump has to try to yank the arm off whomever he’s shaking hands with. The new French president was warned in advance about this, ...

Could the Aliso Canyon Natural Gas Leak Happen in Ohio? 25.5.2017 Truthout.com
Ohio has the most underground natural gas storage wells of any state and the highest number of those which might be vulnerable to leaks, according to a new  study  by researchers at Harvard University and Boston Children's Hospital. Of Ohio's 3,318 underground wells used for natural gas storage, 902 are repurposed wells. Those wells were initially drilled for something else, such as the extraction of oil and gas. That means they're more likely to share age and design characteristics that contributed to the four-month methane leak at  Aliso Canyon  in California from 2015 to 2016, said Drew Michanowicz at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He is lead author of the study published Tuesday in Environmental Research Letters. Ohio has about two dozen active facilities that put natural gas into wells under pressure and take it out on an as-needed basis, compared to 47 in Pennsylvania and 44 in Michigan. Each facility can have dozens or hundreds of storage wells connected to it. "The primary ...
