Zonas muertas aparecen en los océanos

La pérdida de unas 80.000 toneladas métricas de oxígeno podría causar una seria afectación a ecosistemas vitales y acarrear resultados catastróficos.

Científicos dan la voz de alarma: 'Zonas muertas' aparecen en los océanos

La disminución del nivel de oxígeno en los océanos es considerado como otro efecto nocivo causado durante los últimos 50 años por el incremento en un grado centígrado de la temperatura del ambiente, que a su vez es producto de varios factores como la constante emisión de gases a la atmósfera terrestre.

Un estudio realizado por un grupo de expertos alemanes del Centro de Investigación Oceanográfica Helmholtz (GEOMAR) y de la Universidad de Kiel, analizó los datos del nivel de oxígeno colectados en las últimas cinco décadas. Los resultados, que han sido publicados en la revista ‘Nature‘, reflejan una disminución del 2 % en el nivel del gas vital en los océanos.

Proteger el sustento de casi la mitad de la población mundial

Aunque no parezca una cantidad significativa, se trata de unos 80.000 millones de toneladas métricas de oxígeno, una cifra considerada por los expertos como suficiente para alterar ecosistemas y crear ‘zonas muertas’ en nuestros océanos. Es así que la cantidad de regiones con falta total de oxígeno en las profundidades de los océanos se ha cuadriplicado en el último medio siglo.

Esto sucede debido a que la habilidad del agua para asimilar el oxígeno disminuye cuando su temperatura aumenta y merma la cantidad de oxígeno que se transporta hacia las profundidades del océano.

El resultado de esta variación —más acentuada en la zona norte del océano Pacífico y la sur del océano Atlántico— podría llegar a ser catastrófico, pues existe la posibilidad de que afecte a las corrientes oceánicas, uno de los principales fenómenos que da origen a la vida en las profundidades. El océano, a su vez, se constituye en el sustento de casi 3.000 millones de personas, según cálculos realizados por las Naciones Unidas.

Ghost in the Shell is an upcoming American science fiction action film directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Jamie Moss, William Wheeler and Ehren Kruger, based on the Japanese manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow. Sanders dedicated the film to Buried director Rodrigo Cortés.[citation needed]The film stars Scarlett Johansson, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche. It will be released on March 31, 2017, in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.[5]

Ghost in the Shell (Vigilante do Amanhã: Ghost in the Shell (título no Brasil) / Ghost in the Shell: Agente do Futuro em Portugal) é um filme americano de ação, ficção científica e cyberpunk previsto para lançamento em 2017, dirigido por Rupert Sanders e escrito por Jonathan Herman e Jamie Moss, baseado no mangá homônimo de Masamune Shirow. O filme contará com atuações de Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Takeshi Kitano e Juliette Binoche.[1]

Premise

Cyborg counter-cyberterrorist field commander The Major (Scarlett Johansson) and her task force Section 9 thwart cyber criminals and hackers. Now, they must face a new enemy who will stop at nothing to sabotage Hanka Robotics’ artificial intelligence technology.[6]

Sinopse 

Major (Scarlett Johansson), uma ciborgue comandante de campo especializada no combate contra o cyberterrorismo e sua força tarefa, a Seção 9 são especializados em frustrar os planos e cybercriminosos e hackers. Porém, agora, eles devem enfrentar um novo inimigo ainda mais mortal, rápido e inteligênte que não vai parar até conseguir sabotar toda a tecnologia de inteligência artificial da Hanka Robotic.[2]

Cast – Elenco

Production 

In 2008, DreamWorks (which had distributed theatrically in the United States through its Go Fish Pictures banner the film Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence) and Steven Spielberg acquired the rights to produce a live-action film adaptation of the original manga. Avi Arad and Steven Paul were later confirmed as producers, with Jamie Moss to write the screenplay.[10] In October 2009, it was announced that Laeta Kalogridis had replaced Moss as writer.[11] On January 24, 2014, it was reported that Rupert Sanders would direct the film, with a screenplay by William Wheeler.[12] Wheeler worked on the script for approximately a year and a half, later saying, “It’s a vast enterprise. I think I was second or third in the mix, and I know there have been at least six or seven writers.”[13] Jonathan Herman also worked on the screenplay. Ultimately, credit for the screenplay was given to Moss, Wheeler and Ehren Kruger.

On September 3, 2014, Margot Robbie was in early talks for the lead role.[14] On October 16, it was announced that DreamWorks had made a $10 million offer to Scarlett Johansson for the lead role, after Robbie’s talks for the role fell apart when she was cast as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad.[15] This marks the second time that Scarlett Johansson stars in a cyberpunk film after The Island (2005). In May 2015, Paramount Pictures agreed to co-produce and co-finance the film.[16] On November 10, 2015, Pilou Asbæk was cast in the film for the role of Batou, the best fighter and second in command in Section 9.[17] On November 19, 2015, it was reported that Sam Riley was in early talks to join the film for the villain role as Kuze, the leader of most dangerous criminals and extremists.[18] But, on February 4, 2016, Variety reported that Michael Pitt was in talks for the role.[19] On March 3, 2016, TheWrap reported that Japanese actor Takeshi Kitano had been cast as Daisuke Aramaki, the founder and leader of the elite unit Section 9 tasked with protecting the world from the most dangerous technological threats.[20]

Principal photography on the film began on location in Wellington, New Zealand, on February 1, 2016.[21] In April 2016, the full cast was announced, which included Juliette Binoche, Chin Han, Lasarus Ratuere and Kaori Momoi.[8] In May 2016, Rila Fukushima was cast in a role.[22] Filming wrapped up in New Zealand on June 3, 2016. Filming also took place in the Jordan area of Hong Kong, around Pak Hoi Street and Woosung Street on June 7, 8 and 10 or 14–16.[23][24]

Casting criticism

The casting of Johansson in the lead role caused accusations of whitewashing.[25][26][27][28] It has been alleged that the filmmakers at one point commissioned the usage of CGI and other visual effects testing to alter Johansson’s appearance in order to make her ethnicity appear Asian, spurring further backlash,[29] including an ironic video response from popular YouTube filmmaker Freddie Wong.[30][31]Paramount has stated the tests were short-lived and did not involve Johansson.[32] Some fans as well as people working in the industry have claimed the controversy is a symptom of a bigger issue, and that modern Hollywood fears casting non-white actors would bring films less of a profit than white actors would bring.[32][33] Marc Bernardin of Los Angeles Times commented that “the only race Hollywood cares about is the box office race.”[34]

In Japan, some fans of the manga were surprised that the casting caused controversy, since many already assumed that a Hollywood production would choose a white actress in the lead role, and they considered that not too much attention should be paid to the physical appearance of the main protagonist because the dominant themes in Ghost in the Shell are the nature of self-identity and how it becomes affected with the use of different cyborg bodies that host human cyber-brains.[35] Sam Yoshiba, director of the international business division at Kodansha’s Tokyo headquarters (the company that holds the rights to the series and its characters) said, “Looking at her career so far, I think Scarlett Johansson is well cast. She has the cyberpunk feel. And we never imagined it would be a Japanese actress in the first place… this is a chance for a Japanese property to be seen around the world.”[35][36]

During a launch event in Tokyo, Sanders said of Johansson, “There are very few actresses with 20 years’ experience who have the cyberpunk ethic already baked in. I stand by my decision — she’s the best actress of her generation”.[37] Paramount released a featurette of Mamoru Oshii (director of the original films) visiting the studio, in which he says that Johansson exceeded his expectations for the role.[38]Paul addressed the controversy, referring to the setting of the film as “an international world,” stating “There [are] all sorts of people and nationalities in the world in Ghost in the Shell. We’re utilizing people from all over the world. There’s Japanese in it. There’s Chinese in it. There’s English in it. There’s Americans in it.”[39]

Johansson replied to the criticism, stating, “I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.”[40]

Release

Ghost in the Shell was originally scheduled by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures for an April 14, 2017, release through their Touchstone Pictures banner.[41][42] The film was part of DreamWorks’ distribution deal with Walt Disney Studios, which began in 2009.[43] In April 2015, Disney moved the film’s release date in North America to March 31, 2017, with Paramount Pictures handling international distribution.[16][44] However, it was reported in September 2015 that DreamWorks and Disney would not renew their distribution deal, which was set to expire in August 2016.[45] In January 2016, Disney dropped the film from its release slate after DreamWorks’ distribution deal with Universal Pictures was finalized in December 2015.[46][47] Disney’s distribution rights for the film were transferred completely to Paramount instead of Universal, with Paramount retaining Disney’s release date of March 31, 2017.[46]

Lançamento

Ghost in the Shell foi originalmente agendado pela Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures para o dia 14 de abril de 2017,através de sua subsidiária Touchstone Pictures. O filme era parte do acordo de distribuição da DreamWorks Pictures com Walt Disney Studios, que começou em 2009. Em abril de 2015, a Disney mudou a data de lançamento do filme na América do Norte para o dia 31 de março de 2017, com a Paramount Pictures lidando com a distribuição internacional. No entanto, foi relatado em setembro de 2015 que a DreamWorks não renovou seu acordo de distribuição com a Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures que terminaria em agosto de 2016, em janeiro do mesmo ano, a Disney se retirou do filme depois que DreamWorks Pictures assinou um acordo de distribuição com a Universal Pictures em dezembro de 2015.

Os direitos de distribuição de Ghost and in the Shell na América do Norte que ficaria com a Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures foram transferidos completamente para a Paramount Pictures que anteriormente faria somente a distribuição internacional e à partir de agora fará em ambos os mercados, mantendo o lançamento do filme na segunda data estipulada pela Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures para o dia 31 de março de 2017.

Em 13 de novembro de 2016 a Paramount Pictures divulgou em suas redes sociais o primeiro trailer do filme.

English pronunciation – Bad and Bed

Você pode dizer a diferença?

Hoje nós vamos aprender sobre a diferença na pronúncia americana entre as palavras bad e bed.

Para algumas pessoas essas palavras podem ter o mesmo som mas elas são ligeiramente diferentes entre si.

A primeira palavra, bad, é os dois, um adjetivo e um nome. Como um adjetivo quer dizer o oposto de bom (good) ou baixa qualidade.

A segunda palavra, bed, é os dois, um nome e um e um verbo. Como um nome quer dizer uma parte do móvel que a pessoa dorme.

A diferença entre estas duas palavras está em seus sons de vogais. A palavra bad tem o som AÉ. Enquanto bed tem som de É.

Deixe-me demonstrar como pronunciar estas palavras.

Agora eu vou lhe dar um teste. Eu escolherei uma das duas palavras e dizer três vezes. Por favor, ouça cuidadosamente e diga-me qual palavra eu estou pronunciando em seguida.

Eu espero que você tenha conseguido dizer a diferença e escolhido a palavra bed para sua resposta.

Nós temos outra questão para você. Eu vou ler a sentença duas vezes que contém uma das duas palavras. Sua tarefa é dizer para mim qual palavra eu estou usando na sentença.

A propósito, my bad quer dizer: erro meu, culpa minha. É gramaticalmente incorreto a frase com a palavra bad que é um adjetivo nesse caso, nom um nome (substantivo). Mas as pessoas usam essa frase em conversas casuais (informais), de qualquer forma.
