Horror Movie Production Gets Boost from Argentine Government (EXCLUSIVE)


 
In a further pioneering Argentine push into genre pic production, Luciana Cardosa, president of Argentina’s INCAA Film Institute, has put aside specific funding for horror movie production.
Targeted state financing kicks off with a call for applications, to be launched shortly, for INCAA subsidy funding for two scarefare movies.
In a parallel move, Blood Window, Ventana Sur’s genre pic mini-mart launched in 2013, will expand with a Blood Window horror movie mini-fest playing in Buenos Aires parallel to early December’s Ventana Sur Latin American film market, a joint venture of INCAA and the Cannes Film Market.
Programmers from Blood Window and many of the world’s top genre events — including Austin’s Fantastic Fest, Spain’s Sitges-Catalonia Festival, the Puchon Fantastic Fest and Mexico’s Morbido Fest — will select the lineup.
San Sebastian Festival director Jose Luis Rebordinos is once more on board to select Blood Windows Bloody Works in Progress, a pics-in-post competition.
Argentina’s genre push comes as Damian Szifron’s Cannes competition player “Wild Tales,” a Sony Pictures Classics pickup unspooling at Telluride and Toronto, has nabbed 750,000 admissions through Friday in Argentina.
Over 2014, a selection of Argentine movies, often distributed by studios, have outperformed B.O. expectations, including Disney-distribbed “Baneros 4: Los Rompeolas” ($5 million); “The Mystery of Happiness” ($3 million), a career-best for director Daniel Burman; and “Death in Buenos Aires” ($2.3 million), released by Distribution Co.

HUMAN HEART - FACTS

 

1. Every day, your heart beats about 100,000 times, sending 2,000 gallons of blood surging through your body. Although it’s no bigger than your fist, your heart has the mighty job of keeping blood flowing through the 60,000 miles of blood vessels that feed your organs and tissues. Any damage to the heart or its valves can reduce that pumping power, forcing the heart to work harder just to keep up with the body’s demand for blood.

So how do you make sure your heart is in tip-top shape?
Eat healthy, well-balanced meals and don’t skimp on the exercise.

2. When it comes to matters of the heart, men and women definitely aren’t created equal. For instance, a man’s heart weighs about 10 ounces, while a woman’s heart weighs approximately 8 ounces.
Not only is a woman’s heart smaller than a man’s, but the signs that it’s in trouble are a lot less obvious. When women have a heart attack (and more than a half million do each year) they’re more likely to have nausea, indigestion, and shoulder aches rather than the hallmark chest pain.

Heart disease is the biggest killer of both men and women. And both genders should heed this healthy advice: Don’t smoke, keep your blood pressure and cholesterol levels in check, and watch for the obvious and the more subtle warning signs your heart could be in trouble.

3. Laughter: The good heart medicine
Health experts now have proof that laughter is good medicine.
A good belly laugh can send 20% more blood flowing through your entire body. One study found that when people watched a funny movie, their blood flow increased. That’s why laughter might just be the perfect antidote to stress.

When you laugh, the lining of your blood vessel walls relaxes and expands. So have a good giggle. Your heart will thank you.

4. Stress and the Monday morning heart attack
You’re more likely to have a heart attack on Monday morning than at any other time of the week.
Doctors have long known that morning is prime time for heart attacks. "We call it 'the witching hour".  That's because levels of a stress hormone called cortisol peak early in the day. When this happens, cholesterol plaque that has built up in the arteries can rupture and block the flow of blood to the heart. Add in the rise in blood pressure and increased heart rate from the stress of returning to work after the weekend, and you have the perfect recipe for a Monday morning heart attack.

That’s why it’s important to reduce your stress levels as much as you can. Practice yoga, meditate, exercise, laugh, or spend more quality time with your family - whatever works best for you.

5. How sex helps the heart
Having an active sex life could cut a man’s risk of dying from heart disease in half. For men, having an orgasm three or four times a week might offer potent protection against a heart attack or stroke, according to one British study.

Whether sex works as well for women’s hearts is unclear, but a healthy love life seems to equate to good overall health. For one thing, sexual activity is an excellent stress buster. It’s also great exercise - burning about 85 calories per half-hour session.

If you find it difficult to have sex, that could be a big red flag that something is wrong with your heart. For example, some researchers think erectile dysfunction might warn of a heart attack up to five years in advance.

THERMAL RECORDING OF THE ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE

 

ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons  die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
