USA’s #1 export industry is not aeronautics, computers or cars, but the entertainment industry: films and TV programmes. TV is now a global presence: the number of TVs per citizen has doubled from 1980 to 1995.

Since 1976, Hollywood foreign profits have risen from 30% to 50%. In 1996, the US film industry held 76% of the European market and 83% of the Latin American one. Foreign films in the USA make up less than 3% of the market.

La Commune (Paris, 1871)

The participation of the cast in the making of this film is precisely what the global media are afraid of, and probably one of the main reasons why the TV channels which were asked for support, refused to finance this film…

What the media are particularly afraid of, is to see the man in the little rectangle replaced by a multitude of people, by the public….

There are exactly three countries on Earth that do not provide guarantees for paid maternity leave. Papua New Guinea and Swaziland are two of them. Care to guess the third?
Read the article here. 

“Women are forced to put their careers and financial future at risk simply because they want to have children. During their pregnancy, they face being fired unfairly or not being able to properly care for themselves. They should not have to worry about making ends meet without paid maternity leave on top of that.”
America’s attitude toward women and mothers really pisses me off.

ehi calma
qui è prevista la maternità ma o non assumono donne, per evitare di pagare i sostituti durante il periodo, o la licenziano appena rimane incinta, tanto avevi un cococo,partime,partitaiva,stage,collaborazione,boh e no non è proprio come negli Usa ma ci arriveremo.

Isao Hashimoto, 1945-98

This ingenious and deeply disturbing film shows every nuclear explosion between 1945 and 1998 as a blip and a sound on a world map. The result is a piece that reaches levels of both frenzied cacophony and disquieting silence. Please watch.

Epic Timelapse of Europe, from 1000 CE to 2005.

WWI at 2:48, WWII at 3:03.

I just want a nice, speedy counter of the years passing in the corner or something.  Might add to the effect.
