Enregistré à Marseille Series Stories dont BetaSeries était partenaire, cet épisode d'Un épisode et j'arrête revient sur la difficulté et les choix éditoriaux d'une adaptation littéraire. On peut être déçu ou impressionné en tant que lecteur et lectrice du matériel originel puis en voyant le résultat sur petit écran. Pourtant, les séries puisent de plus en plus leur inspiration dans les pages. Dark Winds, Germinal, Fellow Travelers... autant de titres qui sont passés par le festival et qui vont être abordés dans cet épisode. https://youtu.be/KU9X4Xyb8JE?si=OiKevSMhOPBZVRx5 Le respect des histoires, les manières d'adapter pour mieux exploiter le médium du format sériel, des petites choses pas toujours faciles à maîtriser.

Dr Glenn McConell chats with Professor Luc can Loon from Maastricht University, The Netherlands. He is an expert with a wealth of knowledge on the role of physical activity/exercise and nutrition on muscle adaptation. A lot of his research focuses on protein and protein synthesis. He applies these studies to young healthy individuals, the aged and also has conducted important experiments on people in ICU. He makes it clear that most people, especially athletes, get enough protein in their diet so do not need to take supplements. Are there really non responders to exercise training? Anabolic resistance with aging is due to inactivity. Lots more. A very interesting chat. 0:00. Introduction 2:09. How Luc got into exercise research 6:30. Moving into protein metabolism 8:05.

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of December 11 and December 18, 2023. [Please note: the audio mistakenly says December 20 instead of December 18.] SOUND – ~6 sec. Those sounds of Mallard ducks, recorded in December 2015 at the Virginia Tech Duck Pond in Blacksburg, set the stage for a duck designation derby—that is, a duck names quiz game! I'll give you clues to the common names of six duck species inhabiting areas of Virginia, either year-round or seasonally. After each set of clues, you'll have a few seconds to hear sounds from the duck and try to guess its name. In the clues, “diving duck” refers to those birds that dive deep under the surface and feed underwater; and “dabbling duck” refers to those birds that feed on or just below the water surface. Number 1: This large diving duck, noted for its reddish head and bright whitish body, has a name that a painter would recognize. SOUND - ~6 sec. That's the Canvasback. Number 2: This diving duck is known and named for its golden-yellow eyes. SOUND - ~5 sec. That's the Common Goldeneye. Number 3: For people who appreciate colorful birds, this small dabbling duck's iridescent green feathers on its head and wings are a big deal. SOUND - ~5 sec. That's the Green-winged Teal. Number 4: If people who wear “hoodies” wanted to know how to look like a bird, the male of this diving duck would be the answer. SOUND - ~5 sec. That's the Hooded Merganser. Number 5: This dabbling duck has a name—based on its spoon-like bill—that could be applied to what people in, say Minnesota, have to become after a big snowfall, if they want to clear a path. SOUND - ~5 sec. That's the Northern Shoveler. And number 6: This elaborately colored dabbling duck, notable for its nests in tree holes and for its ability to perch on tree branches, has a name that comes from trees. SOUND - ~5 sec. That's the Wood Duck. The birds in this game are among 25 duck species known to occur in Virginia, at least occasionally. Many are around in wintertime, so if you're venturing out near water during the cold-weather months, perhaps—with luck and pluck—you'll glimpse or hear some ducks. Thanks to Lang Elliott for permission to use the sounds in the duck names quiz, which were all from the Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs. We close with some music for ducks, with a tune attributed to the late Henry Reed, a traditional musician who lived in Giles County, Virginia. Here's about 25 seconds of “Ducks on the Pond,” performed by Timothy Seaman of Williamsburg, Virginia. MUSIC - ~27 sec – Instrumental. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment. For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.

While on my 13 mile run last week, I stopped for a few walking breaks and on those breaks I decided to record what was on my mind. I always find it cool and interesting to record while my mind is in an altered state, such as right after or during an intense workout or while driving and my mind is occupied. In this episode, I speak about specific adaptations to imposed demands, when it comes to training, Shoegate and the Ron DeSantis controversy over his actual height and more in the world of conspiracy. Lastly, I speak about the truth as I know it, developed through Direct Knowledge, not some shiny new textbook. I think this is super important, more and more as people have lost the ability to think critically, especially when it comes to logic and fitness. And, if you leave a solid review, text it over to me and I will either ship you out a free copy of my book or a blue Panda hat, whichever you like (908-229-6666). P.S. - To get a FREE custom workout that I created, go to the link here and simply enter email address. It's killer... https://www.thepandamanofficial.com/top-secret-special

Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and real talk! Buckle up for a slightly unhinged ep - in a historic moment for the show, we recorded this one in the MORNING! Andrew and Pat are the "cool" Halloween neighbors between throwing sexy parties and giving out full size candy bars. Get ready for more adaptations: 'The Hunger Games' is set to get the stage play treatment. (Real talk, does anyone want to feel immersed in the Panem environment?) 'Spongebob the Musical' ran so that Ethan Samuel Slater could throw his family away for Ariana Grande. Is 'Hunger Games' trying to pull a 'Harry Potter' by continuing to expand the universe? A new study out of UCLA indicates that teens are looking to see less sex depicted on screen. Were we just way hornier as teens, or is there something more to this? How have depictions of sex in popular media changed since we were kids?

The sheer joy of an anecdote can be downright cinematic....On this very special episode we dive into a fascinating documentary that gives us a glimpse into the mind of one of the 20th Centuries great storytellers, by one of the greatest documentarians of our time. On Apple TV+ now, it's 'The Pigeon Tunnel'.Errol Morris pulls back the curtain on the storied life and career of former British spy David Cornwell — better known as John le Carré, author of such classic espionage novels as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and The Constant Gardener. Set against the turbulent backdrop of the Cold War leading into present day, the film spans six decades as le Carré delivers his final and most candid interview, punctuated with rare archival footage and dramatized vignettes.This film takes us down the complex rabbit hole of personality giving us a glimpse at what made one of the best storytellers of the modern age tick.It's a fascinating watch and we had the pleasure of sitting down with producers Stephen and Simon Cornwell (who also happen to be the sons of le Carré to talk about the genesis of the project and the legacy of the man himself across a myriad of mediums.The Pigeon Tunnel is on Apple TV+ now.

We've covered several different kinds of adaptations, and the one thing that they have in common is that they're in some way faithful to their source material. This time around, not so much. And that's why this episode is titled "Subversive Adaptations." In these two films, the intent of some portion of the original story has been turned on its head to give you a similar story, but perhaps with a different point of view, or to present a different message from the source. We begin with Kiss Me Deadly, from 1955. Robert Aldrich set out specifically to attack the right-wing ethos of Mickey Spillane's story, and we benefit from a constant romp of action and intrigue from beginning to end. In Part Two, we'll look at 1997's Starship Troopers. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/wordsandmovies/support
In Part Two of our episode, it's Starship Troopers, from 1997. Paul Verhoeven takes us to a far future society in which everyone is free so long as you're a Fascist. There are a lot of elements of Robert A. Heinlein's original story in there, but it's definitely a different plot line and a different mentality that, in hindsight, may have been more prescient than anyone suspected at the time. COMING ATTRACTIONS: In our next episode, we take a peek at a pair of films where the only thing they have in common is their title. After that, all bets are off. We'll be screening the films No Way Out, from 1950 and from 1987. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/wordsandmovies/support

“I've always loved reading, so it started more with books than movies,” said screenwriter Ariane Hahusseau. “That's how I developed a passion for stories. While in college, I watched a lot of BBC shows. Adaptations of my favorite novels. Coming from a literature background, I realized I could adapt my favorite novels, but also write my own stories.” Ariane, a French expatriate, embarked on her academic journey in the realms of literature, initially in Paris and later in London. She culminated her educational pursuits by obtaining an MFA in screenwriting from the American Film Institute Conservatory. Her love for art and history serves as the guiding force behind her screenplays, which invariably spotlight determined female protagonists battling societal injustices to reclaim their voices. “It's the stories that I feel comfortable in,” she said of the novel adaptations on BBC. “Being a big fan of Jane Austen and stories about women, I developed an interest in talking about the female condition. In screenwriting, they tell you to put as many obstacles in front of your character as you can. Putting them in the 18th Century seems like the perfect setting for a maximum of obstacles for women. Women had so much more to overcome.” This love led to themes in her own work, such as fighting against that which restricts your freedom. “These are themes I love to gravitate around. I'm very interested in what it means to be an artist, like the creation process. How does it spurt out of you? Or is it a genius element of your personality? Or just a lot of work? I love observing the rise and fall of the artist. How they're rejected or accepted by society.” Writing female characters, she adds, raises the stakes even more in terms of acceptance or rejection. Then, of course, the added dilemma of motherhood rises to the surface. “Women are sort of conflicted between two motherhoods: the motherhood of their work as artists and then having children of their own. How do you reconcile those two aspects? That comes back over and over in my writing.” Learn more or enter an upcoming contest here: https://www.networkisa.org/ Want more?

The Phys Flex Cert enrollment closes tonight, Monday, Sept 25, 2023, at midnight PST. To enroll, go to https://miket.me/physflex.In today's episode, I explain how this certification can make you more robust, antifragile, and harder to kill. It takes you to the next level of interventions once you're good with nutrition, recovery, and basic sleep. We also discuss the four pillars of homeostatic regulation, including temperature, pH, fuels, and air, and how managing these can make you more resilient and robust.Get ready to change your training approach as I cover why the eustress model, which focuses on applying stress that you can recover from in a shorter period, is more beneficial. I compare the effects of high-intensity training against more frequent but less intense training, suggesting that the latter provides better results.Episode notes:[2:29] Time and Intensity in Training[7:34] Understanding Context in Applying Physiology[13:58] Importance of Correctly Applying Interventions

Figure It Out: Adaptations and Staying Active - Episode 150 - Transcript - In this episode, we're excited to feature our guest and past program participant, Danica King, who is thriving with MS thanks to her amazing ability to “figure it out.” We're excited to have Danica on this episode while we celebrate Can Do Month, which is in honor of our founder Jimmie Heuga. Jimmie wore many hats including that of an athlete, Olympian, husband, father, and pioneer in the MS Community. Jimmie was all about discovering what you “Can Do” to be able to enjoy the things you love and even try new adventures while living with MS. There are a lot of parallels between Jimmie's Can Do Spirit and Danica's own story. Danica is passionate about adaptive sports and has participated in many sports and activities. Through her story she encourages us to “figure it out” whether that's seeking out adaptive equipment or asking for help. You can check out more of Danica's story in her book Figure It Out: Snapshots Of My Journey With Multiple Sclerosis and follow her on Instagram @FigureItOutMS Thank you to Biogen and Viatris for their support of Can Do Month and this podcast episode.

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of September 18 and September 25, 2023. This is a revised version of an episode from September 2014. SOUNDS - ~6 sec – Pied-billed Grebe call. This week, we feature some raucous mystery sounds from a family of diving birds. Have a listen for about 20 seconds, and see if you can guess what's making these calls. And here's a hint: you'll get grief if you miss this name by only one letter's sound. SOUNDS - ~ 22 sec. If you guessed grebe, you're right! Those were some of the sounds made by the Pied-billed Grebe, Horned Grebe, and Red-necked Grebe. Out of 22 grebe species worldwide and seven in North America, these three species are found commonly in many aquatic habitats in Virginia, with two others—the Eared Grebe and the Western Grebe—seen occasionally within the Commonwealth. Horned Grebes and Red-necked Grebes are regular winter residents on Virginia's coasts, while the Pied-billed Grebe is typically a year-round resident on the coast and a winter resident in other regions. Grebes are known for their swimming and diving abilities; for example, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's “Birds of the World” Web site says quote, “[g]rebes rocket through the water by compressing water behind them with coordinated thrusts of their muscular legs,” unquote; and Cornell's “All About Birds” site calls the Pied-billed Grebe “part bird, part submarine.” Lobed toes set far back on their bodies adapt grebes for swimming, and their ability to add or remove water and air from their feathers and internal air sacs helps them to float or, as needed, to submerge to escape danger or to feed. Grebes feed on a variety of aquatic animals like fish, crustaceans, and insects; on aquatic plants sometimes; and—notably—on their own feathers. In turn, they may be eaten by such predators as raccoons, snakes, and birds of prey. Grebes call and act aggressively during breeding season, but they may be quieter and much less noticeable during non-breeding season. In fact, a calm pond surface might conceal a hiding grebe with only its nostrils exposed to the air, or that surface might be broken—almost silently—by a grebe emerging with a fish in its bill. Thanks to Lang Elliott for permission to use the grebe sounds, from the Stokes' Field Guide to Bird Songs, and we let the Pied-billed Grebe have the last call. SOUNDS - ~6 sec. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.

EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT THE PIED-BILLED GREBE The following information is quoted from the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources (formerly Department of Game and Inland Fisheries), “Fish and Wildlife Information Service,” online at https://services.dwr.virginia.gov/fwis/, primarily the “Life History” section of the the Pied-billed Grebe entry, online at https://services.dwr.virginia.gov/fwis/booklet.html?&bova=040008&Menu=_.Taxonomy&version=19612. The scientific name of the Pied-billed Grebe is Podilymbus podiceps. Physical Description “This species is 12-15 inches (31-38 cm) long with a 23 inch wingspread. It is a small, stocky bird distinguished by its short, blunt bill encircled by a broad black band with the upper portion of the bill curved downward; it is often described as chicken-like. ...Grebes have lobed toes, feet that are placed far back on the body, and a short rudder-like tail to aid in pursuing prey underwater.” Reproduction “The nest is built by both members of the pair and is made up of flags, rushes, sedge, algae and mud and is attached to grasses, reeds or bushes in the water. ...The eggs are laid from March to September, are blue-white initially, and then turn brown. The brown color results from the adults covering the eggs with wet organic matter when they are foraging or defending the territory. ...There may be up to 2 broods per year. Incubation takes about 23 days and begins with the first egg laid.” Behavior “Nest attendance is shared equally by the male and female during egg-laying and post-laying periods. Incubation however, is carried out mostly by the female. The streaked or spotted chicks can swim almost immediately after hatching. The young will usually travel on the parents back or will cling to their tail. The parents may feed the chicks and even dive while chicks are on their back. The parents will return to the nest frequently with the young. Young grebes fledge at about 35 days. ...[This species] rarely flies, and it escapes by diving with a short leap or by slowly submerging. It is the most solitary of the grebes. It is the first grebe to arrive north in the spring and the last to leave in the fall. It migrates in closely-massed flocks. ...” Feeding “Diet consists primarily of fish including eels, carp, and catfish as well as sticklebacks, sculpins, silversides, and minnows. [It will also] forage on crayfishes, aquatic insects, snails, spiders, frogs, tadpoles, some seeds and soft parts of aquatic plants, ...[and] on shrimp in saltwater bays and estuaries. [It ingests] large numbers of their own feathers. This may serve to protect the stomach from puncture by indigestible parts and prevent hard items from entering the intestines. Feathers also provide the base material of regurgitated pellets that contain undigested material such as fish bones.” Aquatic/Terrestrial Associations: “In Virginia, pied-billed grebes have been observed foraging with snowy egrets. Mutualistic foraging enhances opportunities for obtaining prey. Limiting factors: The greatest losses of nests and eggs resulted from wind, rain, waves, and storm tides. Predators of eggs and young include raccoons, laughing gulls, water snakes, snapping turtles, and peregrine falcons.” SOURCES Used for Audio Cornell University Lab of Ornithology, “All About Birds,” online at http://www.allaboutbirds.org.The Horned Grebe entry is online at https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Horned_Grebe/;the Pied-billed Grebe entry is online at https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Pied-billed_Grebe/;the Red-necked Grebe entry is online at https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-necked_Grebe/.
