      • Bread and Circuses

        "Bread and circuses" is a metaphors for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace, as an offered "palliative." Juvenal decried it as a simplistic motivation of common people. In modern usage, the phrase is taken to describe a populace that no longer values civic virtues and the public life. To many, it connotes a supposed triviality and frivolity that characterized the Roman Republic prior to its decline into the autocratic monarchy characteristic of the later Roman Empire's transformation about 44 B.C

        • ДЕУЛИНСКИЕ ХРОНИКИ (из альманаха про пожары 2010 г.)

          Лето 2010. Вся центральная часть России охвачена пожарами. Сгорело около ста тридцати деревень и поселков. В плотном и едком дыму оказались города и дороги. Авторы фильмов альманаха вместе с волонтерами отправляются в самый эпицентр событий. Иногда им пришлось отставлять камеру и брать в руки лопату или ведро, чтобы работать вместе со всеми, или организовывать доставку гуманитарной помощи, зато это не взгляд со стороны. Погорельцы и те, кто смог отстоять свою деревню, волонтеры, лесники, пожарные – они не герои в привычном смысле этого слова, просто это была их жизнь, их беда, и они как могли с этим пытались справиться. В Киноальманах вошли следующие фильмы: «Леша» (реж. Елена Демидова), «Разрыв» (реж. Андрей Картавцев), «Дадо» (реж. Анна Шмелева), «Деулинские хроники» (реж. Тимофей Усиков), «Золотая свадьба» (реж. Елена Демидова). Художественный руководитель - Марина Разбежкина https://vimeo.com/27163748 2:08:14

              • Ventilation limited fires

                In this first video, the legacy fire on the left was created by burning more natural based (wood, cotton, wool etc.) home furnishings. On the right, the home was furnished with modern synthetic based furniture similar to any home we deal with today. Due largely to the change in fuel loads, the fires we face today are very different than those of the past. This video was made during a study performed by Underwriters Laboratories Firefighter Safety Research Institute. For more information please visit http://ulfirefightersafety.com/ The second video was done during a study performed by NIST with the assistance of Chicago Fire Department. Here, we can see how the structure enters into decay stage due to lack of air, and smoke no longer exits a 2nd floor bedroom. This occurs due to the reduction of temperature inside the structure. As the fire is in decay stage and the fire gases (smoke) begin to contract, this causes the area to be in negative pressure. For more information please visit http://www.fire.nist.gov/
