A room of one's own, by Virginia Woolf

I will try to explain. When you asked me to speak about women and fiction I sat down on the banks of a river and began to wonder what the words meant. They might mean simply a few remarks about Fanny Burney; a few more about Jane Austen; a tribute to the Brontës and a sketch of Haworth Parsonage under snow; some witticisms if possible about Miss Mitford; a respectful allusion to George Eliot; a reference to Mrs Gaskell and one would have done.

But at second sight the words seemed not so simple. The title women and fiction might mean, and you may have meant it to mean, women and what they are like, or it might mean women and the fiction that they write; or it might mean women and the fiction that is written about them, or it might mean that somehow all three are inextricably mixed together and you want me to consider them in that light. There has fallen a splendid tear. Playing God. Adam Rutherford meets a new creature created by American scientists - the spider-goat.

Playing God

It is part goat, part spider, and its milk can be used to create artificial spider's web. It is part of a new field of research, synthetic biology, with a radical aim: to break down nature into spare parts so that we can rebuild it however we please. This technology is already being used to make bio-diesel to power cars. Other researchers are looking at how we might, one day, control human emotions by sending biological machines into our brains.

The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World

This post, at #1, was originally published January 31.] With Amazon slowly taking over the publishing world and bookstores closing left and right, things can sometimes seem a little grim for the brick and mortar booksellers of the world. After all, why would anyone leave the comfort of their couch to buy a book when with just a click of a button, they could have it delivered to their door? Well, here’s why: bookstores so beautiful they’re worth getting out of the house (or the country) to visit whether you need a new hardcover or not. We can’t overestimate the importance of bookstores — they’re community centers, places to browse and discover, and monuments to literature all at once — so we’ve put together a list of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, from Belgium to Japan to Slovakia.

Film History of the 1950s. Hitchcock in the 50s: Britisher Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980), the "Master of Suspense," made some of his very best suspense/thrillers during the 1950s, and also found success in the new medium of TV in the mid-50s.

Film History of the 1950s

He premiered his television series anthology Alfred Hitchcock Presents in October, 1955, to bring his macabre sense of humor to the small screen. Each show was prefaced by his ominous, droll greeting "Good Evening" and short, introductory, on-screen comments. Hitchcock employed most of his TV crew to produce his black and white cinematic masterpiece at the end of the decade, the low-budget Psycho (1960).

Hitchcock became well-known and a noted film-maker for two fundamental reasons: his clever cameos called attention to himself, and his films often did well at the box-office.

Di questo sono sicuro. E sarà doppiato. Terrence Malick vs Lars von Trier. Il est rare quand un grand réalisateur, connu pour ses films dramatiques et poétiques, philosophiques et historiques, emprunte tout à coup un genre complètement inédit pour lui, le film de science-fiction à grand spectacle.

Terrence Malick vs Lars von Trier

C’est encore plus rare quand deux grands réalisateurs présentent, au même festival de Cannes, leur dernier film cosmologique, si étrange par rapport à l’univers auquel ils nous avaient habitués. C’est bien pourtant ce qui s’est produit lors du dernier festival de Cannes : The Tree of Life de Terrence Malick et Melancholia de Lars von Trier partagent ceci d’exceptionnel qu’ils comportent de grandes séquences cosmiques, un ballet de planètes, un saut dans l’hyper-espace, alors que l’univers cinématographique des deux cinéastes est on ne peut plus lointain (justement) du space opera, de Star Wars ou de Dune.
