Known for his work on films as varied as “Aliens” and “48 Hrs.,” writer and director Walter Hill’s newest film is the Western “Dead for a Dollar.” Hill tells The Treatment, as he made “Dollar,” he was looking to bring in more modern issues of race and feminism into the classic genre. He says he believes we only have two to three good stories inside us, and most storytellers just tell those same stories over and over in slightly different ways. And he explains why he’s never really considered himself a “Hollywood” director.

Director, writer, actor, and producer Tyler Perry is perhaps most well known for his stage performances and films in character as the elderly, no-nonsense Madea.  His latest film as director, writer and producer – “A Jazzman’s Blues” currently streaming on Netflix – strikes a different tone. Perry tells The Treatment his experience in live performance as well as the actors’ stage experience were key to the film’s feel. He says growing up going to his grandfather’s juke joint in New Orleans was one of his inspirations for “Blues.” And he says when he wrote the film more than two decades ago, he had originally imagined himself and Diana Ross in the starring roles.

George Miller, director of the new fantasy drama “Three Thousand Years of Longing” and the “Mad Max” franchise, describes a record of audio stories as an amusing artifact from his childhood that provided him with all the tools for storytelling in rural Australia in the early 1950s.  
Miller recalls the Christmas morning when his parents gave him and his twin brother a vinyl containing, on one side, a story about Jesus of Bethlehem called “The Small One.” The other side featured a recording of Oscar Wilde’s children’s story “The Happy Prince.” 
Wilde’s tale had first been adapted for the Christmas Eve Philco Radio Hall of Fame program and performed by Bing Crosby and Orson Welles on...

Vu sur YouTube, sur la chaîne d’Apple Demo, un prototype d’Apple Watch PVT équipée de l’OS de test. Elle fonctionne sous SwitchBoard (un système dédié aux tests, différent de watchOS ou iOS) et elle est évidemment en très mauvais état, et a été rafistolée pour démarrer (ce qui est déjà en exploit dans l’absolu). On voit pas mal d’applications qui servent à tester la montre, avec une interface très différente de watchOS.

Alors que le monde occidental et les pays membres du Commonwealth rendent hommage à Elizabeth II, c'est tout un symbole qui part. Mais malgré l'aura dont elle pouvait bénéficier, pour nombre d'Européens, surtout les citoyens de républiques, il est difficile de comprendre que certains britanniques puissent faire la queue des heures pour voir son cercueil pendant quelques secondes au mieux. Toute la cérémonie laisse un arrière-goût désuet , comme un anachronisme dans nos sociétés aux fortes attentes démocratiques. Il reste aujourd'hui sur le continent européen un total de douze monarchies , dont un - et nous avons tendance à l'oublier - est toujours une monarchie absolue : le Vatican. Alors que...

Vacuum cleaners are great for tidying up the home, but they typically can’t deal with the bulky, gross messes of a proper workshop. [CraftAndu] is currently building a sailing vessel, and has found that there’s simply too much sawdust for a regular vacuum to take on. Thus, he built a mighty vacuum of his own that’s able to deal with such conditions.
The core of the build is a giant 3.8 kW dust collector that’s used as part of a workshop dust extraction system. It’s of the type you’d normally use to suck up dust from machine tools. It’s then fitted with a long flexible hose that goes to the vacuum handle itself. The handle is made up of lengths of sewage pipe and several adaptors to fit it all...

TeslaBot promo picture shared after the AI Day 2022 event | Image: Tesla Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed a prototype of a humanoid "Optimus" robot that shares some AI software and sensors with its cars' Autopilot driver assistance features. At the start of Tesla's 2022 AI Day presentation, Musk acknowledged that they had "a guy in a suit" last year but promised something much more impressive today.
According to Musk, this prototype can do more than what was shown live, but "the first time it operated without a tether was tonight on stage." Musk predicted it could hit a price of "probably less than $20,000" and later, in a Q&A session, explained that Tesla is very good at building the AI and the actuators...

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Tesla's Optimus robot prototype was not the only thing the company shared on Friday evening during its AI Day presentation. Autopilot director Ashok Elluswamy took the stage during Tesla's AI day to talk about how the company's Full Self Driving software has improved. He revealed that there are now 160,000 customers running the beta software, compared to 2,000 from this time last year. In total, Tesla says there have been 35 software releases of FSD. In a Q&A at the end of the presentation, Musk made another prediction — he's made a few before — that the technology would be ready for a worldwide rollout by the end of this year but acknowledged the regulatory and...

Color gradient filament is fun stuff to play with. It lets you make 3D prints that slowly fade from one color to another along the Z-axis. [David Gozzard] wanted to do some printing with this effect, and learned how to make his own filament to do the job. 
[David] intended to 3D print a spectrogram of a gravity wave, and wanted the graph to go from blue to yellow. Only having a single-color printer, he needed color shift filament, but couldn’t find any blue-to-yellow filament online.
The resulting color-shifting print looks great, demonstrating the value of the technique.
Thus, he elected to create it himself. He started by creating a spiral model in Fusion 360, with a hexagonal cross-section and slowly...

Gustavo Arellano stops by to discuss Gustavo’s Great Tortilla Tournament which he conceived of five years ago. Inspired by the tortillas he grew up eating, Arellano never questioned why some were better than others until he noticed a pack his father brought home when visiting Arellano’s grandmother in East LA with a logo noting the tortilleria had been open since 1955. Curious about its history and the other small tortillerias in the city, and with a love for sports, he riddled, “What if we put them together and make them fight for the title of the best tortilla in Southern California?” The rest was history. This year’s finale will take place at Smorgasburg on Sunday, October 16.

Given that they were both experienced reference librarians, Deatra Cohen and Adam Siegel began to explore their Ashkenazi roots and the folklore surrounding medicinal healing using plants. Twenty-six herbs were indexed in the Materia Medica. In their book “Ashkenazi Herbalism: Rediscovering the Herbal Traditions of Eastern European Jews,” the couple researched the accounts of community healing and native plants — including St. John’s wort, comfrey, and nettles — used as remedies to treat a range of ailments.
Deatra Cohen and Adam Siegel penned a definitive guide to the medicinal plant knowledge of Ashkenazi herbal healers, from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. Photo courtesy of North Atlantic...

Reflow hotplates are a wonderful tool for PCB assembly if you can keep your designs single-sided. The 946C hotplate in particular has been on hackers’ radar for a while – a 200x200mm working surface hotplate available for under $100 is a decent investment. As with other reflow tools, it was a matter of time until someone made a replacement controller for it. This one, you’ll want to keep in mind – it’s a replacement controller project by [Arnaud Durand] and [Elias Rodriguez Martin], called Reflow946.
Keeping to best practices, the board is a drop-in replacement for the stock controller – swap cables over and go. The host processor is an ESP32, and it lets you can program reflow profiles in using...

Some of these are deck builders, where you create a custom deck of cards from a pre-made selection to play against other people (Magic: The Gathering, for example, is a deck builder game), but most of these games simply ask that you draw from a deck of cards to play.I just got carried away! Besides, this list also includes some of my favorite games that use unique decks to help graft a narrative, putting them solidly on the fence between a board game and a tabletop roleplaying game.

While he reportedly didn’t address any specific rumors, a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter seems to be the likely target of his comments. Earlier this month, the outlet suggested that “top industry execs” were “convinced” that...

Several of these tube sites became big by offering access to a wide variety of content, including pirated videos that were posted by their users without permission. That doesn’t mean that MindGeek is turning a blind eye to pirates. On the contrary.

When [Jak_o_Shadows] Siglent Oscilloscope died, he didn’t just mourn the loss, he saw an opportunity. See, he had a Raspberry Pi 400 already set aside for a cyberdeck build, and he just scored a novel case. Most of the insides of the old scope came out, but the screen and control knobs live on in the new build. An HDMI-to-LVDS adapter brought the screen back to life, and the control knobs are a work-in-progress. Added to the case are some fun goodies, like a LimeSDR, connected to the old scope inputs. A PL2303 is wired to the serial port, making that functional, too. It’s a very nice touch that the build retains the original scope’s functions this way.
There’s plenty of 3d-printed goodness, like some...

One of the core features of the scientific community is the concept of “peer review” where any claims made by a scientist are open to be analyzed and reproduced by others in the community for independent verification. This leads to either rejection of ideas which can’t be reproduced, or strengthening of those ideas when they are. In this community we typically only feature the first step of this process, the original projects from various builders, but we don’t often see someone taking those instructions and “peer reviewing” someone’s build. This is one of those rare cases.
