“Selling out!” “Pandering to the Americans!” The cries went up immediately when the official selection was announced. The list of directors crossing over to make films in English was a long one including the Italians Matteo Garrone and Paolo Sorrentino, Yorgos Lanthimos of Greece, Norway's Joachim Trier and even Guillaume Nicloux of France, a country whose cultural establishment is highly sensitive to the creeping Anglophone menace. The argument goes that Cannes is supposed to be a haven for world cinema; for English, there is Hollywood. But does it really matter? Films at Cannes in languages other than French or English play with subtitles in both languages – and that's a lot of text to deal with.
A retrospective section will include movies produced by the Shanghai studio Wenhua, a company founded in 1946 that ushered a new era of Chinese art-house films, Zhang said, giving viewers "a glimpse of Chinese cinematic culture and history".

Introductory Chapters: Setting the Scene
In their opening chapter ‘What is Music, Health and Wellbeing and Why is it Important?’, editors Raymond MacDonald, Gunter Kreutz and Laura Mitchell allude to the lack of coherence in this area of research but offer a positive outlook (p. 4):
Analysts say headline import figures may start to improve in the coming months since commodity price falls were particularly pronounced at the end of 2014, which will mean smaller year-on-year falls in Chinese imports in value terms.
In short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

A research team at the University of Chicago has solved this problem, producing hands that send electric signals to the brain. They've begun with monkeys as test subjects, studying the animals to see how their brains respond to touch. When outfitted with prosthetic hands that stimulate their brains that way, the monkeys respond just as though they physically touch objects themselves.

‘Cognitive Performance After Listening to Music: A Review of the Mozart Effect’ by E. Glenn Schellenberg reviews the literature surrounding the original publication of a 1993 article in Nature purportedly showing that listening to music has cognitive benefits. The study’s result suggested that performance on spatial tasks was better after listening to Mozart — the so-called Mozart effect. Schellenberg’s review takes the original research and the Mozart effect itself and utterly demolishes them. In short, there is no Mozart effect over and above the fact that “Mozart’s music is simply one example of a stimulus that can change how people feel, which, in turn, influences how they perform on tests of cognitive abilities” (p. 333). Schellenberg goes on to say that “there does not appear to be a specific link between music listening and cognitive abilities, and certainly not between listening to Mozart and spatial abilities” but that “it is clear that music can change listeners’ emotional state, which, in turn, may impact their cognitive performance, and the fact that the link is mediated by arousal and mood does not make it any less meaningful” (p. 334). Schellengberg concludes the same paragraph: “music is special because it is an easily transportable but non-toxic stimulus that influences how we feel, and because how we feel affects virtually all aspects of human experience.”
Mr Williams notes that early November data from the likes of Brazil, Vietnam, Taiwan and Chile suggests the picture has continued to improve since October.
Rents at the top end of the market have fallen 6.4 per cent, more sharply than in any other city except Nairobi, according to Knight Frank, the property company.

‘The Effects of Background Music on Health and Wellbeing’ by Susan Hallam offers a relatively brief survey of the literature, but nonetheless the takeaway messages are worth noting — among them, that people (except for younger children) are generally very good at selecting background music the effects of which will be positive for them for the task in which they’re engaged, but that when music choices are imposed by others, the effects may be detrimental to performance, health and wellbeing and may generate significant distress. The authors also touch on ‘problem music’, which may promote maladaptive behaviours and attitudes, citing for example the potentially problematic influence of country music “with its focus on problems commonly experienced in everyday life” (p. 493), mentioning one study that found higher suicide rates correlated with greater airtime devoted to country music.
Amid all of the current talk about whether government law enforcement agencies should be able to legally force Apple to unlock an iPhone to look for evidence, there is a machine available now at London's Fone Fun Shop that will find the four-digit passcode used to lock down an iPhone.

NATO’s bombing campaign began on March 24 1999 after peace talks meant to stop the persecution of ethnic Albanians in Kosovo collapsed. Targets in both Yugoslavia and Kosovo were struck—first the Serb air defense network that opposed NATO planes then a broader target array including Yugoslav army forces said to be directly involved in the persecution of Kosovars. The target list also included political-military targets inside the Yugoslav capital of Belgrade itself.
