No related posts. We were over to the deWitts last Sunday and John, as usual, was expounding about Voltaire being the greatest mind ever. Well, I happen to disagree, and dragged up Voltaire’s stupid remark about, “when the arts are perfected, we may be able to cure the crackpot,” or words to that effect. Of course “arts” covers a pretty wide field, and might be stretched to cover wallpapering and plumbing, in which case I have no comment.But my own definition of art includes only what is creative or inspired by the three Muses, which was the Greeks’ way of explaining the inexplicable mystery of creation. These days we can do better than that by appealing to neuroscience. But first, let’s talk about Chance. Take, for instance, three balls colored red, green and blue. Mix them up in a bag and pick them out one by one and you get a sequence green-blue-red. Mix and retrieve them again and you get, say, a different sequence: green-red-blue. Each sequence is something novel, arrived at purely by chance, although composed of a rearrangement of preexisting elements; red, green and blue balls.In my view, memory is the recapitulation of previous experience, and experience is nothing but a particular sequence of Action Potentials passing through the cytoplasm of sensory neurons in the Central Nervous System (CNS). In the course of recovery from storage within the nuclei of said neurons, the original sequence of APs is rarely preserved exactly, accounting for the notorious unreliability of memory. But this chance mixing of APs has a plus side; like mixing colored balls, it creates something new out of something old. Artists, indeed creators of any kind, tend to be daydreamers, unconventional and inept at anything that isn’t their specialty.“When dreaming, they are actually reviewing the elements of the existing order. Thus the transistor was an unusual rearrangement of materials already known to differentially attract negative or positive charges; surrealism was nothing but an unusual rearrangement of the normal elements composing a recognizable scene; and Symphony No.2 is no more than a completely new arrangement of the notes found in Symphony No.1.So the daydreaming is essential for memorizing all the known elements to be mixed together in the brain. There is nothing new under the sun, only different mixtures of the known. But one mixture is novel only because of the inefficiency of the memorization process, and the reputation of the artist rests on his ability to pick out the good from a large pile of the bad. Looked at this way, art cannot be perfectible, because it depends on a chance process that is uncontrollable. Artists frequently rely on a drug: coffee, cannabis, sex or something stronger to sharpen their ability to pick out the new, but that’s another story.I am sorry to report that John deWitt’s response to my devastating attack on Voltaire was “Bullshit!” But then, like so many uncreative people, he has a closed mind, impervious to anything new.

The official Fuan city police microblog said Sunday that a sedan had collided with a car and three motorcycles just before 8 p.m. Saturday, leaving five people injured.“The accident made a small number of local people dissatisfied, so they smashed police vehicles and overturned three police vans,” said the statement.An initial investigation found that a person with no driving license surnamed Jiang had caused the accident and was in police detention, it said. It said the driver wasn’t drunk but had accelerated to avoid a patrol vehicle and aroused attention.It said four of the injured were in stable condition and the other one had been discharged from hospital.Later Sunday, the propaganda department of Fuan’s Communist Party committee put out a statement countering accusations police and paramedics had been slow to respond.It said police had immediately called paramedics and traffic police after the collisions, and a patrol car drove to a hospital to pick up three doctors. The five injured were taken to hospital 40 minutes after the accident happened, it said.“As the rescue work was going on, some relatives of the injured people and onlookers got out of control,” said the statement. “They started to push and shove the doctors and knock the ambulance and so the ambulance left the scene under police escort.” It said “a handful of lawless people misled some people who didn’t know the truth” and they began targeting police vehicles.The Hong Kong-based Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy said about 10,000 people clashed with police, and that 10 police vehicles had been smashed, three overturned and 20 people injured.The scenes were triggered by the local police corruption, the center said in a faxed statement that didn’t cite any sources.It alleged that Fuan’s traffic police were illegally registering license plates to vehicles from outside their jurisdiction for 50,000 yuan ($8,000) and that local residents suspected the sedan had such a license.Calls to Fuan’s transport bureau rang unanswered. A man at Fuan’s local government propaganda department didn’t answer questions but referred to a press release on a local news portal which said the same as the Fuan police microblog.__Associated Press researcher Henry Hou contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Associated PressBEIJING (AP) – Thousands of residents protested in a southeastern Chinese city after a traffic accident, smashing police cars and overturning three police vans, police and residents said.The reason for the protest in Fuan city in Fujian province was unclear. Police said it was instigated by “a handful of lawless people.” One resident said people became angry because police and paramedics took nearly an hour to arrive to help the injured, while a Hong Kong-based human rights group said it was to do with corruption. 0 Comments Share But such protests have become increasingly common in China, and Saturday’s violence is another reminder that the country’s new leadership has to deal with underlying social discontent that often boils over. People are fed up with corruption and high-handed officialdom, pensions that have not kept pace with inflation, and families being forced from their homes to make way for developments.Residents said police were stopping cars and checking people for driving after drinking on Saturday evening when the accident happened on a main road in Fuan.Wanting to avoid being tested, a driver in a sedan accelerated away and police started chasing the car, said a resident, who would give only his surname, Lin. About three motorcycles were hit during the chase, said Lin, adding he wasn’t sure who hit them.“About 10,000 to 20,000 onlookers became angry because police officers and paramedics took nearly one hour to arrive,” said Lin.He estimated that 1,000 to 2,000 people clashed with police and overturned three police vans.Photos carried by online southeastern news sites showed hundreds of people swarming across a wide street with two vans thrown onto their sides. In one photo, three people stood on top of an overturned van. Sponsored Stories How do cataracts affect your vision? Top Stories 5 treatments for adult scoliosis
Community support runs deep against Australia’s largest public-private partnership. Image: Save Our Spit The Gold Coast cruise terminal debate has heated up again with the Queensland Government calling for a multi-billion dollar development to be built on public land from north of Sea World to west of Wavebreak Island, adjacent to the Broadwater.Set to consist of an integrated cruise ship terminal, casino, residential development and resort, the Broadwater Marine Project will be Australia’s largest public-private partnership and the nation’s largest tourism infrastructure development. Queensland Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney and Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate are set to make the announcement today ahead of Sunday’s anti-cruise terminal rally organised by community group, Save Our Spit.“I think the timing is entirely provocative, but very consistent with Mr Tate’s pugilistic attitude to this whole issue,” Save Our Spit spokesperson Kate Mathews told e-Travel Blackboard.“I think the Queensland Government has abrogated its public responsibility in setting proper and appropriate approaches to develop public open space.”The rally is expected to attract thousands of people from the Gold Coast and beyond.“There has been no consultation whatsoever in terms of the wholesale grand giveaway of public open space in the middle a most beautiful estuary,” Ms Mathews said.“The public will not accept this. It may sound trite, but we will fight them for our beaches.“It will backfire in the government’s face.”Ms Mathews highlighted their support of further developing the cruise terminal in Brisbane with only 15 percent of the Brisbane on-shore excursion market currently captured by the Gold Coast.“Put the money into the terminal in Brisbane, it’s a beautiful terminal and we will welcome them and make their stay in the Gold Coast a wonderful experience.“Cruise ship passengers are welcome but not if it’s at the cost of one of our most beautiful assets.“The cruise ship companies should be very cautious before they get caught up in this excess of governmental greed.”Used solely as a transit port, the cruise terminal will be a mandatory part of the project and one of the first components built by 2015, two years ahead of the council’s proposed terminal project. The Gold Coast Bulletin reports that the number of casinos, hotels, residential or entertainment developments within the project will be limitless with tenders expected from some of the world’s biggest and best developers, hoteliers and casino operators. “We’ve already seen a number of the world’s leading developers and tourism groups express genuine interest in establishing a cruise ship terminal as part of a major tourism project,” Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney told the Gold Coast Bulletin.“We would expect there could be significant international and national interest in major new infrastructure on the Gold Coast.”A sufficient amount of public open space and waterfront access is required as part of the project with the land expected to be offered on a 99-year lease and the successful consortium responsible for covering all dredging costs, currently estimated at AUD$63 million initially and AUD$6.1 million per subsequent year.See below documentary developed independently that gathers information from all sides of the debate.

Cathay Pacific to launch non-stop servicesCathay Pacific to launch non-stop services to Brussels, Dublin and CopenhagenProviding unmatched convenienceCathay Pacific continues to grow Hong Kong’s connections to the world. From Summer 2018, the airline will launch pioneering non-stop routes linking Hong Kong with Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen, further strengthening the airline’s network and providing new trade and tourism opportunities between Asia and Europe.Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer Rupert Hogg said that the announced services will meet customer demand for non-stop travel to these vibrant cities, while at the same time providing Europe-based passengers with more convenient access to key destinations in Asia and Southwest Pacific through the airline’s home in Hong Kong.“We’re excited to offer the only direct flights between Hong Kong and Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen. These are all fantastic destinations and attract business and leisure travellers from the world over. We listened to our customers’ demands for more options and greater flexibility and have responded by building direct air links with these great cities,” said Mr Hogg.“Growing our reach to new destinations that aren’t served from Hong Kong boosts the city’s status as Asia’s largest international hub and enables us to capture new and important sources of revenue.”Following the recent launch of services to Gatwick, Madrid and Barcelona, Cathay Pacific’s European expansion continues. With the commencement of the new routes, the airline’s network will cover 15 European destinations served direct from Hong Kong.New levels of on-board comfortCathay Pacific’s long-haul fleet of aircraft averages just five years of age, making it one of the youngest in the industry. The three new routes will be operated by Cathay Pacific’s state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft, which feature the latest seats and cabin design and which have been especially well-received by the airline’s customers. All flights to Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen are equipped with the aircraft’s enhanced inflight entertainment system and Wi-Fi on board.Cathay Pacific has in operation 18 of the 22 A350-900s it has on order, with the remaining four aircraft due for delivery before the end of 2017. Additionally, the airline has 26 of the larger A350-1000 type scheduled to join its fleet from 2018. These environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient aircraft allow Cathay Pacific to open up new markets not otherwise served from Hong Kong.Destination informationBrusselsThe administrative and financial heart of Belgium – and the de facto capital of the European Union, cosmopolitan Brussels is famed for its beautiful parks, architecture and myriad cultural attractions. Cathay Pacific will commence a four-times weekly service to the Belgian capital from 25 March 2018.DublinImmortalised in the works of author James Joyce, the ever-evolving Irish capital is known for being one of Europe’s great sporting, music and nightlife centres. It is also ranked one of the world’s most innovative cities and is a global hub for the leasing and finance of aircraft, a status that Hong Kong, following recent tax legislation, is on course to emulate. The new four-times weekly Hong Kong to Dublin service will be launched on 2 June 2018.CopenhagenConsidered Scandinavia’s capital of cool, Copenhagen is a thriving eco-friendly metropolis with a small-town feel and a breathtakingly beautiful harbour. The lifelong home of fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen, Copenhagen has been named the world’s most liveable city on numerous occasions. Denmark’s cultural centre will be served by a three-times weekly seasonal service between 2 May and 12 October 2018.Source = Cathay Pacific
NEW YORK, N.Y. – The cold weather proved a boon for television celebrations of the New Year.More than 25 million people tuned in to see Ryan Seacrest ring in 2018 from a frigid Times Square, the biggest audience for ABC’s venerable “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” since at least 1991, the Nielsen company said. CNN and Fox also set standards for their celebratory coverage that night.The cold likely cut both ways: with most of the country in a deep freeze, fewer people than usual may have ventured out to celebrate and those who stayed in wanted to see how outdoor partiers were dealing with the weather. The temperature in Times Square dipped into the low teens as the ball dropped.“I’m finally getting feeling back in my extremities right now,” said Rob Mills, a senior vice-president at ABC who supervised Seacrest’s show. Seacrest kept a running commentary on the weather, and ABC showed a clip of the show’s originator, Dick Clark, with a frozen water bottle on a previous New Year’s celebration.Viewers were also curious to see if Mariah Carey could make up for her problem-plagued appearance on last year’s show, where she appeared flustered and lip-synced through some of her performance, Mills said. This time, things went smoothly as she sang “Vision of Love” and “Hero.”ABC’s viewership between 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. beat its previous standard of 23.2 million as 2000 melted into 2001. “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” has aired since 1972, but Nielsen doesn’t have reliable viewership records prior to 1991.To put those numbers in perspective, about as many people watched Seacrest around midnight as watched the Grammy Awards in prime time last year.Fox stationed Steve Harvey in Times Square this week for the first time, and reached 8.5 million viewers between 11 p.m. and 12:19 a.m., Nielsen said. That beat the audience for the network’s specials with Pitbull from warmer Miami the past few years.CNN reached 3.28 million viewers with its New Year’s special between 11 p.m. and 12:30 a.m., bigger than any audience it has received since it started special New Year’s coverage in 2005, Nielsen said. CNN’s viewership has generally increased over the years, and the firing of Anderson Cooper’s co-host Kathy Griffin made no difference. Griffin, who lost her CNN job after posting a depiction of President Donald Trump’s severed head, was replaced by Andy Cohen.Cooper revealed that he had spent nearly $3,000 on special heated clothing for him and Cohen.“Every now and then you’d press a button and your pecs would get really hot,” Cooper said during an appearance on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show.”Cooper and Cohen beat Fox News Channel’s duo of Kennedy and Jesse Watters, which had 2.42 million viewers in the same time period, Nielsen said.With television networks knocked off their regular schedules on a holiday week, CBS averaged 5.7 million viewers in prime time to lead the broadcasters. ABC had 4.5 million viewers, NBC had 3.9 million, Fox had 3.3 million, Univision had 1.5 million, ION Television had 1.3 million, Telemundo had 970,000 and the CW had 910,000.Its schedule filled with football, ESPN averaged 6.2 million viewers in prime time. Hallmark was second among the cable network with 2.2 million, Fox News Channel had 1.56 million, USA had 1.51 million and TNT had 1.31 million.ABC’s “World News Tonight” topped the evening newscasts with an average of 9.4 million viewers. NBC’s “Nightly News” had 8.7 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 6.9 million.For the week of Dec. 25-31, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: “Primetime New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” (10 to 11 p.m.), ABC, 15.8 million; NFL Football: Oakland at Philadelphia, ESPN, 11.77 million; College Football Orange Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Miami, ESPN, 11.73 million; “Primetime New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” (8 to 10 p.m.), ABC, 10.52 million; “The OT,” Fox, 10.5 million; College Football Fiesta Bowl: Washington vs. Penn State, ESPN, 10.17 million; College Football Cotton Bowl: USC vs. Ohio State, ESPN, 9.54 million; “Cotton Bowl Pregame,” ESPN, 9.46 million; “The Big Bang Theory” (Thursday, 8 p.m.) CBS, 8.74 million; “Young Sheldon,” CBS, 8.6 million.___ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.

Naseeruddin Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah with the youngsters Heeba Imaad and Vivaan talked to Seema Chishti Deputy Editor The Indian Express about their passion for the stage celluloid and small screen and why they are less a family and more a gang There is never a dull moment when a performer is on the dais — this time there were five of them The latest edition of Express Adda featuring Naseeruddin Shah and wife Ratna Pathak Shah with their children Heeba Imaad and Vivaan was moderated by Seema Chishti Deputy Editor of The Indian Express At the event presented by Yes Bank in association with IIFL and The Olive the Shahs who are well-known for their wit and straight-talk kept a houseful audience comprising theatre people filmmakers and other eminences riveted with their understanding of art and entertainment and their views on what makes a performer Time warp in Indian cinema Naseeruddin Shah: During the 40 years that I have been acting in movies I haven’t seen any significant paradigm shift The encouraging fact however is that there are still people who are trying to break the mould and make movies that don’t conform The ratio of such filmmakers to those who make big bonanza films remains as small as it was in the ’70s and ’80s The filmmakers of the ’70s may have compromised or lost their fire but their presence at the time was extremely important as their works spawned the new generation of people who make films such as Masaan Fandry and Dum Laga Ke Haisha It’s frustrating to see that Indian cinema hasn’t emerged from its dependency on theatre from which it originated I refer to theatre of the ’20s Parsi theatre and natak tolis — theatre from which our cinema drew its talent We still like to function within that comfort zone of fairy tales and breaking into a song any moment which dates back to the tradition of the dastangoi Countries like Thailand and Taiwan are making more cinematic movies because cinema and theatre aren’t joint at the hip Issues of the small screen Ratna Pathak Shah: I was around when television came to India I definitely felt it’s a medium different from cinema with a possibility to talk about different things and that happened Take shows like Buniyaad and Hum Log — the biggest stars on television were elderly people Tara that was about four women living alone and making their lives was unusual In the late ’80s and ’90s we nosedived into this saas-bahu world and we’ve become more regressive over time Also now we get offended at the drop of a hat So nothing honest can be said about anyone Heeba Shah: I haven’t done much of TV but as I understand when we try to convey something through an art form it’s about a special moment Probably the most special honest moments for those who write for TV is the extreme love they experienced when they were 16 That is what they remember and write about After that it has all been about making money the Shahs who are well-known for their wit and straight-talk kept a houseful audience comprising theatre people filmmakers and other eminences riveted with their understanding of art and entertainment and their views on what makes a performer (Source: Express Photo by

some day I never entertained the thought of failure There was a particular day when I was rather upset and was probably hungry also with empty pockets I thought I’d pray I did wuzu but then I thought that was nonsense One doesn’t pray in order to bargain The only times I have prayed since then have been in gratitude I was very lucky that I turned up at a time when actors like me were needed When directors like Shyam Benegal and Govind Nihalani and Mrinal Sen were making movies about real people FTII controversy Naseeruddin: Had I been a student at Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Pune today I would be swept up with the passion that the students are experiencing It’s extremely worrisome that a person who instigated an attack on those students is now a member of the governing council I wish the students had more clarity on their views The whole issue is not aboutGajendra Chauhan But what’s gone wrong is that the students have not stated their demands clearly and in the past have had too many agitations on meaningless issues Ratna: I don’t think I would have gone to FTII today That institution has been systematically broken down like all educational institutions in this country There has been no acting teacher there for I don’t know how long The people who have worked there to teach acting how can they even be appointed On what grounds Imaad Shah: I don’t know

Son Imad and Vivan during Express Adda at Olive in Bandra on Tuesday (Source: Express photo by Prashant Nadkar) To be an actor or not to be Vivaan shah: I never wanted to earn a living through acting in movies I wanted to act but in theatre Doon School had a fiercely academic environment which is why acting in movies was unheard of for me although I was from a family of actors but acting just sort of happened Ratna: I grew up in a family of actresses When I was in school everyone said ‘You’ll be an actress when you grow up’ You want to sock that person in the face I looked down on acting as a fluffy insubstantial profession It took me a long time to accept that being an actor is an all-consuming profession If you really want to be good it must be that way That’s what happens to children from the profession You end up saying no for a long time in spite of the fact that inside your heart you’re really keen on it Films vs theatre Ratna: The two mediums — movies and theatre — are so interesting and interrelated while being so different The big question for me in theatre is — where can an actor practise A musician has seven swar to practise on a dancer has a codified form where does an actor practise I never got any work in movies I got work in television much later Theatre was the one place that welcomed me that gave me opportunities to extend my abilities It was an absolutely important and fundamental part of my existence Naseeruddin: I trained for both simultaneously at National School Drama first and then FTII immediately after I did my first movie and we did our first theatre production — in which Ratna and I acted together Satyadev Dubey ji’s play Sambhog Se Sanyas Tak — at the same time I wanted to be an actor because I wanted to be famous There was a phase when along with the new wave cinema I was also involved in a whole load of terrible films During that phase it was theatre which kept me sane Political Stand Naseeruddin: You should stick to the job you know that would be the statement of your political beliefs I may face a paradox in my work because I have done films like Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai and Paar and have also done Mujhe Meri Biwi Se Bachao So which is the one that conveys my politics Yet I am not too sure about actors stepping into politics full time If they involve themselves in politics at all they should immerse themselves completely They should not meddle with it or pay mere lip service Ratna: Standing for political office is one thing and participating in public life actively is another Since actors are recognisable and at least some of us do shape opinions in public we should be careful about what we endorse in the work we do Honestly though you’ve got to earn If I turn down all the work I don’t agree with politically I’ll never be able to act We have a little more freedom of choice in theatre so the kind of theatre we do is probably closer to what I personally believe in A lot of actors shoot their mouth off and Twitter and Instagram have unfortunately ended up showing us how thoughtless and how silly a lot of our public figures are Vivaan: I have a big problem with this whole digital age All three of us grew up in the ’90s and that was a time when kids could still enjoy physical objects like cassettes tapes and toys Now everything is just floating around somewhere it’s all nebulous and I am really scared that everything is digital for kids growing up today Things have become too virtual Ratna : Unfortunately Vivaan you are sounding like a fossil already Naseeruddin Shah

Shepherd Global What is your opinion on the second generation of family actors in the film industry Naseeruddin: The sons of famous people have always been inducted into the film industry whether as

connections There are also young people like Nawazuddin Siddiqui Irrfan Kay Kay Menon and Kangana Ranaut who have made a mark for themselves in the face of all odds Vibha Kagzi:Founder and CEO ReachIvy I want to ask the younger people on the panel what is the one value that you have imbibed from your parents Imaad: Our home was the base for everything — we have seen rehearsals and costumes

but they showed us how to work hard It’s not only about clicking pictures and going for auditions but about getting obsessed with the words and doing things to the best of your abilities Vivaan: They are very ideological My mom told me that rules are meant to be followed; like even if there is a signal in the middle of the night then you must stop your vehicle Small things like these and bigger things related to art Madhukar Kamath:Group CEO & Managing Director DDB Mudra Group This question is only for the youngsters Do you believe this family is a cartel How do you respond to that and how do you break out of that Vivaan: You’re talking about not our family per se but the general notion of a family Our family is nothing like a cartel We are like a gang Amrita Puri:actor In your film career do you have any regrets Would you have changed things Naseeruddin: No I wouldn’t change a thing I was naturally disappointed that I didn’t get the kind of success I craved but I could see why Those movies I did were just utterly ghastly Wild horses wouldn’t be able to drag me to see any of them Onir:Filmmaker There was huge support from NFDC in the ’70s for the new wave of cinema Perhaps at that time they should have also paid attention to creating exhibition space for these kinds of cinema Naseeruddin: That is where the NFDC failed miserably and that is why there are 10 times more
