Le 17 octobre 1961, la police française réprimait brutalement une manifestation d’Algériens organisée par le F.L.N. à Paris. Soixante ans plus tard, l’événement n’a pas épuisé la controverse. Au point de faire encore l’objet d’une négation pure et simple dans un récent article d’un universitaire pour le moins controversé. La photo emblématique prise par Jean Texier pour L’Humanité après la répression sanglante de la manifestation du FLN du 17 octobre 1961 à Paris.
Plusieurs dizaines d’Algériens ont été tués, plusieurs centaines blessés, lors de la répression par la police française, sur plusieurs jours, d’une manifestation pacifique que le Front de Libération...

Hi Quartz Africa readers!Early this month, 17 African finance ministers released a statement in support of IMF managing director Kristalina Georgieva in the wake of allegations that she instructed staff to manipulate data to favor China while she was the chief executive of the World Bank.Last month, an inquiry found that Georgieva had played a key role in interfering with the World Bank’s 2018 Doing Business survey. The allegations cast doubt on Georgieva’s future at the IMF, but after reviewing the claims, the fund’s executive board on Oct. 11 announced she was remaining as its managing director, saying their investigation “did not conclusively demonstrate” impropriety.Read the rest of this story on...

Hail, Hespera!Screenshot: Warner Bros.Given that the first (surprisingly fun) Shazam movie came out in April of 2019, it’s pretty understandable we’ve seen almost nothing from the upcoming sequel, Fury of the Gods. Although the first film’s success meant the sequel script was started almost immediately, the movie was only supposed to start production in the middle of 2020, which didn’t happen for obvious reasons. And given that filming only wrapped for the sequel this past August—a mere month and a half ago—honestly, it’s pretty nice to even get to see this behind-the-scenes video out of DC’s Fandome event today, especially since the movie is looking pretty damn good.If you’ll recall, the...

WarnerBros The Batman debuted a brand new trailer at DC FanDome on Saturday, showing off the best look yet at Robert Pattinson’s take on the Dark Knight and promising an even darker, grittier version of Gotham’s Caped Crusader than any that have hit film before. Set just a few years in Batman’s career as a superhero, The Batman promises to show not just a look at the early days of Batman but numerous other proto-villains and allies, including Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Andy Serkis as Alfred, and Colin Farrell as The Penguin. The new trailer also gives the first real look at Paul Dano’s take on the iconic Batman villain the Riddler, who appears to be going for a far...

With this year’s DC Fandome comes a new clip from Naomi introducing Kaci Walfall as the show’s titular heroine at a pivotal moment in her life when everything she knew about herself was about to change. Because she’s such a relatively new character, Naomi’s comics lore is still really coming into shape, but her origin story’s a rather action-packed one. Like everyone from Port Oswego, Oregon, Naomi grew up longing for one of the world’s many superheroes to one day...

We are big fans of the little desktop magnetic levitation setups that float a small object on a magnet. As [3D Printed Life] points out, they look like magic. He was surprised that the commercial units use analog electronics. He decided to build a digital version but didn’t know what he was getting into. He details his journey in the video you can see below.
Along with a custom control board, he decided to wind his own electromagnets. After finding that tedious he built a simple coil winder to automate some of the work. If you have ever struggled to find the sweet spot for the magnet on one of these, his first problem was completely predictable. He lost control of the magnet which slammed against the PCB and...

PineTime is the open smartwatch from our friends at Pine64. [TT-392] wanted to prove the hardware can play a full-motion music video, and they are correct, to a point. When you watch the video below, you should notice the monochromatic animation maintaining a healthy framerate, and there lies all the hard work. Without any modifications, video would top out at approximately eight frames per second.
To convert an MP4, you need to break it down into images, which will strip out the sound. Next, you load them into the Linux-only video processor, which looks for clusters of pixels that need changing and ignores the static ones. Relevant pixel selection takes some of the load off the data running to the display and...

There’s still no firm release date for the delayed Analogue Pocket (outside of the broader “December 2021” window that the company last provided in September), but Analogue is looking to whet players’ appetites with the next best thing: a deep look at AnalogueOS, the new custom software that will power the Pocket whenever it does actually arrive.
As one might expect for a retro gaming device, AnalogueOS features a minimal, pixel-art style design that’s meant to get you into games as easily as possible. But Analogue is taking its goal of making the ultimate retro gaming device seriously. There’s a new “Library” feature, with a massive database that the company has built from the ground up with...

[Timon] just bought a new PCB holder setup for his desk. It’s one of those spring-loaded jobbies that uses strong magnets to hold it up off of a work surface, and is made of metal so that you can reflow solder with it. It might be a clone of the PCBite, but frankly I’ve seen similar projects everywhere — it’s hard to say who is copying whom these days. And anyway, that’s not the point.
What struck me about the holders was their tops: they’re repurposed 3D printer nozzles. That’s a fantastic idea because they’re non-magnetic, heat tolerant, relatively uniform, and probably dirt cheap in Shenzhen, where the designer of this board almost certainly lives. Maybe he or she even works in a 3D printer...

Qatar-based TV network beIN has been heavily embroiled in perhaps the most controversial TV piracy scandal in recent years. Saudi-backed pirate satellite provider beoutQ threatened to decimate beIN’s business and the ensuing battle had far reaching consequences.
The conflict was part of a diplomatic crisis between Qatar and other Arab countries and resulted in beIN being prevented from doing business in Saudi Arabia. BeoutQ was happy to continue broadcasting beIN’s content, however. BeoutQ’s satellite operations reportedly went offline in August 2019 under assorted diplomatic pressures, but that didn’t stop the transmission of beIN content via its rival’s set-top boxes.
Last week it was reported that...

“You screw them out. You chisel them out. You fucking hurt them. And then, you watch them squeal.”That line, from the grizzled family patriarch Logan Roy (played by Brian Cox) is just one example of why viewers have come to love Succession and its stream of venomous axioms and baroque jabs delivered by the very wealthy.While the show, which returns to HBO on Oct. 17, ostensibly critiques the foibles of the mega-rich,  Succession is really celebration of plutocratic sensibilities,  offering an unvarnished, albeit comically over-the-top, taste of how billionaires really might move behind the scenes.Read the rest of this story on qz.com.
