Next for 49ers’ Garoppolo is an ‘eerie’ return to Kansas City

first_imgSANTA CLARA – Jimmy Garoppolo can retrace his infamous steps Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium, the scene of the crime, where his season got robbed and his career trajectory suddenly became dependent on his left knee’s reconstruction.Coach Kyle Shanahan plans to play him the first half at Kansas City, allowing Garoppolo ample time to rediscover his offensive rhythm and attain any mental catharsis.“It definitely will be a little weird getting back there,” Garoppolo said Thursday, “but I’m just …last_img

You’ll find them in Belgium, France, Germany, Argentina, Finland, Canada, Italy… it seems the practice of choosing a lock to symbolize a special relationship, then fastening that lock to a public structure has really caught on. It’s made its way to South Korea, too.Seven love lock trees at the N Seoul TowerAt the N Seoul Tower on Namsan Mountain in central Seoul, a less traditional type of love-locking is happening. Seven “trees” at the base of the tower are being festooned with thousands of colorful locks.One of them is not like the others. The relationship it represents is that between cache owner and cache finder.The very small, very sneaky cache.Fair warning: this cache is not a quickie. Unless you’re very lucky or have insider information, it’s going to take some time to figure out which of these locks contains the cache. Needle-in-a-haystack caches aren’t for everyone, but if you enjoy that sort of challenge this cache should be on your bucket list.Geocacher rayjoli and kids.Words with the Cache Ownertejerosaurio fount it!Geocaching HQ: What inspired to you to hide a sneaky lock cache in this spot?bluesky61: Six years ago I attended “10 Years! Event” for my first event geocache. I remember that there was a disabled cache in the nearby area. I thought that there should be placed a very nice geocache, because the N tower is one of the most renowned landmark in the city of Seoul. Later I found the disabled cache had gone. I wanted to make a very pleasant-to-find geocache and gave it a thought over and over. And finally, I was able to make this love lock cache. It was very good to hide among the great many locks and the lock trees.Geocaching HQ: What advice do you have for people looking for this cache?bluesky61: There are so many love locks, and also so many muggles around. However, you don’t need to fear. Nobody would think you are a geocacher looking for a cache. They would think you like one of them examining various kinds of different love locks and the names on them. Just blend in with them. Yes, that will do!Geocaching HQ: Is there anything you’d like to share with the geocaching community in general?bluesky61: I think geocaching is a game of consideration of others. All the activities including placing a good cache, exchanging trade items, finding and replacing the caches are based on the thoughts how we can please our visitors to find the cache and have them enjoy the processes to a find. I think that’s why geocaching [is] growing and attracts muggles to become philosophers.Love lock trees at night around the holidaysContinue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world.Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.

“Five Came Back” — Lessons from Famous Directors During WWII

first_imgThe documentarians based the show on the 2014 book by Mark Harris by the same title. Laurent Bouzereau served as director, and Meryl Streep is the narrator. Even Steven Spielberg was involved as executive producer. The show spans 100 hours of archival footage and includes interviews with the five directors themselves. Five modern directors each narrate a specific director: Steven Spielberg for Wyler, Francis Ford Coppola for Huston, Guillermo del Toro for Capra, Paul Greengrass for Ford, and Lawrence Kasdan for Stevens.There is a lot to learn as a filmmaker by watching this series. Not only does it give you a glimpse into the minds and methods of these historic “greats,” but it also highlights the influence of powerful storytelling on a society and the moral responsibilities that implies. Though it is specifically exploring WWII, it touches on contemporary subjects like race, PTSD, and propaganda. The series is surprisingly intimate, with deeply emotional archival footage and valuable insight for any filmmaker in any genre.For those looking for more, Netflix is also streaming thirteen of the documentaries discussed in the film. Explore the list yourself:The Battle of Midway (1942, John Ford)Prelude to War (1942, Frank Capra)Why We Fight: The Battle of Russia (1943, Frank Capra)Undercover: How to Operate Behind Enemy Lines (1943, John Ford)Report from the Aleutians (1943, John Huston)The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress (1944, William Wyler)The Negro Soldier (1944, Stuart Heisler; produced by Frank Capra)Tunisian Victory (1944, John Huston)Know Your Enemy: Japan (1945, Frank Capra)The Battle of San Pietro (1945, John Huston)Nazi Concentration Camps (1945, George Stevens)Let There Be Light (1946, John Huston)Thunderbolt (1947, William Wyler) Explore the power and influence of filmmaking in world history through the lenses of some of the greatest American directors.All images via Netflix.Often, I think we forget how significantly storytelling affects a society. In a previous article, I explored the possibilities that open up when you get a more diverse group of filmmakers in the director’s chair. I truly believe that stories told by a population of filmmakers that better represents society as a whole will also better serve it. And the Netflix documentary series Five Came Back aptly proves the power of storytelling’s influence.Five Came Back is a three-part Netflix series about five famous directors in Hollywood who served in World War II. Each episode explores their careers before the war, the crucial role their talents played in the war, and how it affected their work when the war was done. It also shed a fascinating light on the power of propaganda, as well as the unique relationship between the U.S. Government and Hollywood at this time. The series takes you through the careers (and personalities) of Hollywood greats John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. It’s an intoxicating dose of film history during one of the more significant periods of world history. The visual landscape alone is spectacular. It jumps between clips from some of my favorite classics to iconic, emotional, and cinematic shots of the war, violence, bombings, and society at the time.last_img read more

Actors now know it is time to get into characters: Ashwiny

first_imgBy Shubha DubeyPanaji, Nov 24 (PTI) From Aamir Khan doing a “Dangal” to Salman Khan breaking stereotypes with “Sultan”, Bollywood superstars have started experimenting with roles on screen, and director Ahswiny Iyer Tiwari believes the reason for this shift is the realisation that cliche will not sell any more.Tiwari, who had young Swara Bhaskar playing a mother to a teenage girl in her first Bollywood directorial venture “Nil Battey Sannata”, says as a filmmaker she feels actors now have more options in terms of characters.In an interview with PTI on the sidelines of IFFI, the director says, “All the actors are aware about the shift in cinema. They all know that it is time to get into characters rather than just being themselves.”Tiwari says actors like Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are easily shifting through films like “Judwaa 2” and “Humpty Sharma…” to “Badlapur” and “Udta Punjab”.”They know what is working. We are in a very good state of Indian cinema because we can make all kind of movies. The actors have options in terms of roles. And we have a society which accepts them in different characters. It is commendable to see our actors working in such a manner.”Tiwari is known for her slice-of-life cinema and her second film “Bareilly Ki Barfi” received both critical and commercial success.The director, whose next will revolve around the sports of Kabaddi, believes films, which were popular during the 70s and the 80s, have made a comeback as audiences now prefer to watch stories “about them”.advertisement”In the era of consumerism, where everything is available on the click of a button, it is tough to figure out where we belong. My idea is to go back to where we come from and cherish the things which we all had.”We are a country of the youngest generation, We have grown up with certain values and it is important for me to remind the audiences about it. Why even today Basu Chatterjee and Hrishikesh Mukherjee are relevant? Because they talk about life. This is why lice-of-life cinema is currently working well.”She may have a realistic approach towards her storytelling but Tiwari also believes in incorporating aspirational elements in her films.”I believe a lot in understanding the audience. It is important to involve their insights in cinema. In movies, it is important to have a fine balance between aspirational stuff and the real things. It is like people may identify with my characters, but at the same time they probably will aspire to dress like them.”Tiwari says entertaining the audience is her soul motive as a filmmaker and she enjoys interacting with her viewers to understand their thought process.”I am making films for the audiences, to entertain them. I am there because of their love for the kind of cinema I make. So it is very important to have a dialogue with them. I want them to keep helping me in moving ahead,” she says.

I think he’s destined for a career at the highest level, but January isn’t the right time for him to move.“He wants to finish the season in Florence, as does [Cristiano] Biraghi.
