"Steve Jobs" le biopic captivant de Danny Boyle

Steve Jobs le créateur de la marque Apple, fut l'un des visionnaires les plus emblématiques de ces dernières années. Pour preuve, cinq ans après sa mort Hollywood s'empare de son histoire. C'est le réalisateur Danny Boyle qui se prête à la tâche avec brio. Explications

“Fascinant, brutal et attirant à la fois ” : pour Danny Boyle, le Steve Jobs créé par le scénariste Aaron Sorkin a tout d'un personnage shakespearien, dont son film explore les obsessions et la personnalité complexe. Le résultat est à la hauteur de l'intérêt suscité par le visionnaire cofondateur d'Apple : un “ portrait impressionniste ”, à la fois intime et constamment en mouvement, qui détourne les règles classiques du biopic.

Un scénariste inspiré. Oscarisé en 2011 pour The Social Network (qui racontait la création de Facebook), Aaron Sorkin offre à nouveau relief et dramaturgie à un scénario en prise avec la révolution numérique. Construit en trois chapitres, son récit évoque la féroce exigence et la fascinante détermination de Steve Jobs, que l'on suit en temps réel avant le lancement de trois produits emblématiques de sa carrière : le Macintosh en 1984, le NeXTCube quatre ans plus tard, l'iMac en 1998. “ Le film est une abstraction, explique son réalisateur. Il mélange des faits réels et imaginaires autour de trois actes. ” Le procédé, adroit et immersif, fait exploser l'habituelle narration linéaire tout en évoquant les relations de Steve Jobs avec ses collaborateurs et ses proches.

Un réalisateur qui a du nerf. Essentiellement construit autour de dialogues, ce scénario foisonnant profite du style énergique de Danny Boyle : après avoir repoussé une première fois les murs du huis clos avec 127 Heures, le cinéaste britannique soigne le rythme et la fluidité de sa mise en scène pour (…) Lire la suite sur Figaro.fr

US: White House hits back at Sarah Palin for linking son's domestic violence charges to Obama

A White House official pushed back against comments by former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin for implying that President Obama was somehow responsible for her veteran son’s recent arrest on a domestic violence charges.

The former Alaska governor was also been criticised by the leader of a veterans’ group for her comments. But Republican front-runner Donald Trump, just endorsed by Palin, has chimed in that Obama is to blame.

Press Secretary Josh Earnest indicated that the first response could be to scoff at Palin’s remarks. “I can tell you that the reaction of some people is to make light of the rhetoric that we see on the campaign trail, particularly from Governor Palin, but the fact is domestic violence is not a joke,” he said at his daily press briefing.

“The fact is domestic violence is not a joke. Gun violence is not a joke. Problems with addiction are not a joke and the … sacrifices that many of our men and women in uniform make, for our safety and security, are not a joke.”

Palin’s eldest son, Track, who was deployed for a year in Iraq, was arrested on 18 January for allegedly punching his girlfriend in the face and having a firearm while intoxicated in the Palin family’s Alaska home.

At a campaign rally the day after Palin endorsed Donald Trump for president, she appeared to attribute her son’s problems to Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome that he suffered as a soldier, and seemed to blame President Obama for not respecting veterans. Track Palin, 26, served in Iraq for a year in 2008 when Republican George W. Bush was still in office.

“It’s kind of the elephant in the room because my own family is going through what we’re going through with my son, a combat vet,” she said in a campaign speech in Oklahoma. “My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened. They come back wondering if there is that respect for what their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to the country.

"It starts from the top, the question though that comes from our own president, where they have to look at him and wonder: ‘Do you know what we go through, do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?’ ”

Palin added: “I can certainly relate to the families who … feel these ramifications of PTSD. It makes me realize more than ever it is now or never for the sake of America’s finest that we have a commander-in-chief who will respect them.”

The leader of a New York City veterans group told NBC News that: “it’s not President Obama’s fault that Sarah Palin’s son has PTSD,” which Paul Rieckhoff, who heads Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, called a “complicated mental disease.” He urged Palin to “resist the urge to politicise the issue. I hope this doesn’t become a political chew toy in a political campaign,” he added.

But he also noted that Track Palin may well need help for PTSD and it’s a “great opportunity for Sarah Palin to sound the alarm about PTSD.”

Now that “she has endorsed Mr. Trump, I would encourage her to talk with him about it,” said Rieckhoff. “Mr. Trump’s campaign is pretty light on specifics about what he would do for veterans.”

Trump is whole-heartedly backing Palin on her comments, and said he urged her to refer to her son’s arrest in her speech. Asked on CNN if it “was fair” to link the president to Track Palin’s problems, Trump responded: “Oh, I think so. Look, everything starts at the top. He’s the president. And I think you can certainly do that. And all you have to do is look at the Veterans Administration, and look at the bad, the horrible care our vets get.”

Kingdom free of Zika virus

The Ministry of Health announced that Saudi Arabia has not recorded any cases of Zika virus.

A source said the ministry has in place a preventive program educating health practitioners on how to deal with the virus if they came across a patient.

“The virus is widely spread in South America and Latin America. Travelers who have weak immunity, chronic diseases or pregnant women are advised to postpone their trip to the Americas for their safety as they would be in high risk of contracting the disease,” said the source.

The World Health Organization is meeting Monday to decide whether the Zika virus outbreak suspected of causing a surge of serious birth defects should be considered a global emergency on the scale of Ebola.

The UN health agency warned last week that the mosquito-borne disease was ‘spreading explosively’ in the Americas, with the region expected to see up to four million cases this year.

Experts also fear the warm weather system El Nino will fuel the outbreak by increasing the mosquito population.

Brazil sounded the alarm in October, when a rash of microcephaly cases, a devastating condition in which a baby is born with an abnormally small head and brain, emerged in the northeast. Since then, there have been 270 confirmed cases and 3,448 suspected cases, up from 147 in 2014.

There are fears that the virus — which has spread to 23 countries — is being passed to humans via the common mosquito, as some say El Nino is playing a factor into the rapid spread of it.

Zika has been linked to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains in Brazil.

Stats: Records broken by Cristiano Ronaldo in Real Madrid’s 6-0 thrashing of Espanyol
Cristiano Ronaldo – The Record breaker

Real Madrid romped to their third victory under Zidane putting six past hapless Espanyol. At the center of it all was three-time Ballon d ‘OR winner Cristiano Ronaldo netting yet another hat-trick in La Liga. There seems to be no limit to his goal scoring ability.

Several critics stated that the Portuguese International was past his best after scoring at a slower rate than he usually does this season with only 16 goals in 21 appearances. But Ronaldo made his football do the talking and responded with a perfect treble.

Real Madrid started with a bang scoring three goals in the first fifteen minutes. Benzema opened the scoring in the seventh minute. Ronaldo then scored his first, five minutes later from the penalty spot and Rodriguez made it three within the first quarter of an hour. Ronaldo scored his second right before half-time with a fierce left-footer from outside the box. He completed his hat-trick in the 82nd minute after heading a Jese cross into the net.

With this, Ronaldo now has 39 career hat-tricks. Five of those have been perfect hat-tricks(at least one scored off the right foot, left foot and head).

In both the games against Espanyol in La Liga this season, he has scored eight goals. No other player in the history of the Spanish top division in this century has scored that many against a single team in a season.

10 – @Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 10 of Real Madrid’s last 14 goals against Espanyol in La Liga. Beast.

The hat-trick has also put Ronaldo back in the hunt for the Pichichi award, level with Suarez on 19. The forward has also reached the 30 goal tally in all competitions this season, the 7th time he has achieved the landmark in the last seven seasons at Real Madrid.

In terms of penalties, the 30-year-old has now converted seven times from 12 yards which is the highest in the top five European Leagues. He has also now won more penalties, 14 to be exact which is more than any player since the 2009/10 season. Ronaldo is now only two behind Lionel Messi in terms of goals from outside the box with 17 long rangers.

The Portuguese’s record-breaking prowess is also helping the Los Blancos reach certain landmarks. Real have now scored five or more goals in six matches this season. Thier win over Espanyol lifted them to 64 goals this season which is the highest total in all major divisions across Europe. 

It’s safe to say that the superstar is now back in form and now it’s just a matter of how many more records he will end up breaking by the end of the season. Real Madrid now face strugglers Granada in an away fixture. Another hat-trick on the horizon? You wouldn’t bet against him!

Tout ce qu'il faut savoir sur Lorient-Montpellier

LORIENT - MONTPELLIER

L1 / 25eme journée - Samedi 6 février à 20h00

Arbitre : Mikael Lesage

Stade du Moustoir (18 500 places)

Montpellier, qui se trouve actuellement dans la zone rouge, doit impérativement s’imposer lors de cette rencontre pour sortir la tête de l’eau. Le club héraultais devra continuer à préserver sa cage comme lors de ses deux derniers matchs de L1 contre Lorient. Un défi qui semble assez compliqué puisque le Merlu Yann Jouffre, en très bonne forme, est impliqué sur trois des quatre derniers buts de Lorient en championnat. De plus, les Merlus sont invaincus en huit matchs face à Montpellier à domicile en Ligue 1 (3 victoires, 5 nuls). Un combat qui semble perdu d’avance contre le douzième de L1. Au moins sur le plan des statistiques…
