The mood in paradise is bad. One of the largest telescopes in the world is to be built on the Hawaiian volcano Mauna Kea. But a broad alliance is making a stand against the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). Because it is said to be in the most sacred place of Hawaiian religion and culture – and there are already a dozen other telescopes there.
Now the University of Hawaii has announced a step to appease its opponents. The Ukirt infrared telescope, erected on Mauna Kea in 1979, will be demolished without replacement in six to seven years. It would be the third observatory to disappear before the TMT is built. Previously, plans to dismantle the larger Caltech Submillimeter Observatory and the smaller Hoku Kea training telescope at the University of Hawaii had become known.
With the announcement for the demolition of the third telescope, a specification by island governor David Ige is implemented. He had promised in May that a quarter of the previous telescopes on Mauna Kea would have to give way before the TMT can be switched on.
Construction work on TMT has been on hold since massive protests in April. Sometimes several hundred people had come, Hawaiians as well as environmentalists. Whether the demolition announcements are enough to satisfy the opponents remains to be seen.
US President Barack Obama recently announced another measure designed to improve the mood: On Monday, he presented a program of visits for residents at an astronomy night in the White House. Interested Hawaiians should be able to look around once a month in two telescopes on top of Mauna Kea. Accompanied by experts.
The mountain is an interesting place for astronomers because the air at 4200 meters is very thin and extremely dry. As a result, the observations are only slightly disturbed.
The Thirty Meter Telescope promises a new quality of sky observation in the near and medium infrared range. The main mirror is to be composed of 492 individual parts – and from 2024 onwards, some images will be ten times sharper than the “Hubble” space telescope. The TMT costs more than a billion dollars. The money comes from the USA, Japan, Canada, India and China, among others.

Taiwan/Alaska/Los Angeles – Applause on the plane – but not after a successful landing, but at an altitude of more than 9,000 meters: a baby has just been born!
“You only experience something like this once in a lifetime,” said Fluggast to the US broadcaster “ABC News”, to which a video was played from the machine.
It shows how excited the stewardesses, equipped with face masks and paper towels, line up around the little wonder in row 49. One of them holds the newborn in her arms. It’s a girl
But it seems like you can’t quite believe what just happened …
The China Airlines plane was on its way from Taiwan to Los Angeles last Thursday when a passenger changed course. An emergency landing in Alaska was planned.
But the baby was faster …
His Taiwanese mom was traveling alone – the actual delivery date is said to have been eight weeks. Fortunately, there was also a doctor on the plane who was on her honeymoon on her way home.
“My specialty is paediatrics, but it usually has nothing to do with pregnant women,” Angelica Zen told the US broadcaster. And: “I was a little nervous.”
But Zen improvised and with the help of the crew members brought the baby into the world healthy. The mother was “tough as a rock”, described a passenger.
So that mother and child could be treated in a clinic as quickly as possible, the pilot landed the plane early in Anchorage (Alaska). Both should be fine.
What nationality is the baby?
The hot question: is it an American – or was the birth too far from American soil? According to the US Aviation Administration, airspace is crucial. Ultimately, however, the nationality depends on what the hospital in Alaska has entered on the birth certificate.
Unfortunately, this is not known.

The first season of Fargo took up the unlikely bet of emulating the style of the Coen brothers to tell us an original story. Noah Hawley is now going further by attempting to reoffend, thus demonstrating that his work was not until then a simple happy accident.
Based on this launch episode for the second season, there is definitely no reason to doubt its capabilities. He not only re-appropriated the essence of the Coen’s work, but he added his own touch to build something cohesive and clearly unique.
Coming back to the famous Sioux Falls massacre mentioned by Lou Solverson in the first season – then played by Keith Carradine -, Fargo Season 2 offers itself a seductive hook for all those who have followed Molly with her investigation. However, since it is an anthology, the story is independent and it is therefore a whole new universe that we discover with its already emblematic figures and its slightly different atmosphere.
The styling exercise is clearly what works best from the start. The plot quickly sets in, delivering some amazing moments and introducing many characters, but it’s the directing, the music and the editing that reminds us that we’re in. Fargo. From the disconcerting first minutes, you can tell that Noah Hawley is definitely more determined than ever to assert his voice and isn’t afraid to take risks. Helped by an explosive cast and the snow of Calgary – which plays the role of Minnesota – he does not hesitate to start with a bang.
So many things are happening in this season premiere which does not mix efficiency and haste. The dead begin to pile up, which is not surprising, since – according to legend – one should be able to pile them up and reach the height of a two-story house. Apparently, the description given by Lou is to be taken at face value.
This one is also making a comeback, this time embodied by Patrick Wilson. So we know he’s going to get through it, but that’s one of the only certainties we can have at this stage. In the tradition of Fargo, no one is truly immune to the vagaries of life, the violence of criminals and the confusing stupidity of some Minnesota citizens. Additionally, Hawley announced that he was also drawing inspiration from two other Coen brothers films, Miller’s Crossing and The Barber, the man who wasn’t there. The first was not stingy with corpses with his war between gangsters, so we know in which direction the season is heading with the Gerhardt family who must protect their illegal business from outside competition.
Fargo however, is not just a series about police and criminals. It offers a refreshing portrait of an America that is somewhat isolated and only seemingly peaceful. By setting the plot in 1979, it is quite a choppy conjuncture that adds to the mix, a good way to examine a murky part of the history of the country which divided and marked by its chaos and the uncertainties that went with it. .
A whole program for the 9 episodes to come which, if they are of the caliber of this cover, should reserve some excellent surprises. Fargo seems in any case able to confirm all the good that one thought of her after her impeccable first season and could even surpass herself.

The second installment of the anthology inspired by the Coen brothers’ film begins this Wednesday, October 14 on Netflix, the day after its American launch. Last May, we were on his set, in Calgary, in Western Canada.
It snowed during the night. A thin white film covers the ground of Calgary. But the May sun is already breaking through. It won’t hold up. Since January, and the start of filming, the weather has been fine. A hell of a bad luck. It took a reason: the landscapes of season 2 of Fargo, launched Monday October 12 on FX and available from Wednesday 14 on Netflix in France, will not be as snowy as those of the first. ” Winter is one of our main characters … and it made some whims, cowardly, fatalistic, its producer Kim Todd. So, we added a little artificial snow, and we act as if the story took place between winter and spring. “. A stone’s throw from the city center, lost in a soulless industrial zone, a huge 6,000 m2 hangar accommodates the main sets. The houses of the characters, a hospital ward, a butcher’s shop, a chalet… In a corner, piles of lamps, seats, garlands, tables of uncertain taste, all supposed to come straight from 1979 – or rather from the 1960s, since ” the deep America of 1979, aesthetically, it is that of 1960 », s’amuse Kim Todd.
Attentive viewers of season 1 of Fargo may remember the “Sioux Falls Massacre”, an old affair quickly brought up by Lou Solverson, a former cop who owned a diner (Keith Carradine). « I would tell you the details, but you wouldn’t believe me. A real madness, he promised during a sequence (to review here). You could climb the corpses to the second floor “. It is this bloody episode, never explained, that the season 2 of Fargo. Contrary to True Detective, the anthology therefore maintains a link between its first two chapters. In 1979, Solverson (this time played by Patrick Wilson) was about forty years old. Recently returned from Vietnam, he is investigating a mafia family, the Gerhardts (played by Jean Smart and Jeffrey Donovan, in particular). There he meets his boss and stepfather, Sheriff Hank Larsson (Ted Danson), meets a couple full of ambition, the Blomquists (Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons), a shovel of gangsters and even Ronald Reagan himself (Bruce Campbell ), which it will have to protect.
« This season 2 must be totally different from the first … but with similarities, explains Noah Hawley, his showrunner. It was already our roadmap, for season 1, compared to the Coen brothers film “. It promises more characters (there were already 77 speaking roles in season 1), more sets, more intrigues which all will converge on the “massacre of Sioux Falls”. ” It is always a story of simple, decent people who cannot communicate, who do not know how to adapt … and who end up getting out of hand “. In the hangar, there is “slippage” full of the walls. Here, a butcher’s fridge with threatening hooks. There, a chair on which someone was tied up. Further on, a meat grinder bathed in a pool of blood… This season 2 of Fargo should count a record number of corpses. In the costume department of the series, we are told that we must ” four models of the same garment per death: one for before, one for pendant, one for after, and one for the stuntman “. John Ross, the head of special effects, demonstrates his talents on a stage where he digitally adds corpses ” so that thirty extras become three hundred corpses “. Kim Todd recounts, hilariously, how it was necessary to displace part of the population of a small town to shoot five nights in a row the last scene of the season, loaded with detonations and explosions …
The spirit of the Coen brothers is never far away. ” We nickname this season 2 No Country for Old Fargo ”, laughs Patrick Wilson, installed in a corner of the village hall of Bragg Creek, a town of five hundred souls about thirty kilometers west of Calgary. He has just shot, oh surprise, a shooting scene, where Lou Solverson and Hank Larsson storm a chalet (1). ” It is the eternal drama of innocent heroes who will have to face the devil incarnate, analysis Ted Danson, white beard and jacket bearing the sheriff’s star. The characters are so candid that they become fun. There are never any jokes, no winks to the viewers, but we laugh… between two brutal scenes “. An omnipresent black humor, which seduced Kirsten Dunst, absent from the small screen since 1997 and an episode of Beyond the Real: The Adventure Continues (she was then 15). The actress plays Peggy Blomquist, a beautician who dreams of making a fortune and leaving the countryside to settle in the city. ” It is arguably the richest role of my career, she enthuses. I’ve never had so many weird things to do in one work. Peggy walks headlong, she doesn’t listen to anyone, she is ready to do anything to achieve her goals, even if it means causing a lot of damage ».
Season 1 of Fargo offered an amused look, by turns critical and mad, on deep America, consumerism, the love of guns and appearances. By shifting its plot to the end of the 1970s, Noah Hawley offers himself a whole other, richer setting. ” The historical period should not be just a setting, he corrects. The crime itself must be the product of its time. Season 1 took place in 2006, in a prosperous America, before the crisis, where no one expected such a chain of violence. 1979, it’s post-Vietnam, post-Watergate America, in the midst of a recession, hit by an oil crisis and the end of the ideals of the sixties… Reagan is about to be elected, corporatism is needed, paranoia dominates ». « It was a strange time, when we started to believe in UFOs », Laughs Patrick Wilson. Ted Danson adds: ” I started my career at that time, explains the actor of 67 years. With Vietnam, we started to see everyday violence as an acceptable, banal fact., before adding, mysterious, There is something very seventies happening in the criminal cycle of this season 2. But I can not tell you … ».
With ten episodes shot in five months, the teams of Fargo must have gone faster than on a movie set. However, in all mouths, the same refrain returns: ” It’s a ten hour movie, affirme Kirsten Dunst. Besides, no one here is talking about a miniseries or an anthology, but about the “film”. I never thought of the next episode, always one and the same story ». « There is a starting catastrophe, and the whole plot unfolds, spreads its tentacles like in a ten hour movie », Adds Patrick Wilson. Noah Hawley prefers a more literary image. ” In my head, I imagined this big book, “History of Crime in the Midwest”, he explains with reference to the lying box that opens each episode, “this is a true story”. I draw my scenarios from it. A chapter contains the Coen brothers film, season 1 of the series is found a few pages later, followed by a chapter which inspired this second part, etc.. “He’s already thinking about a season 3, connected to the first two,” but not necessarily with a member of the Solverson family “(2). Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst and Patrick Wilson will certainly not appear there – there is nothing to say that their characters will survive this season – but there should still be good people in Calgary this winter. And hopefully a little more snow.
The young actress decided to be hospitalized to treat her postpartum depression.
Postpartum depression affects many women after childbirth. At 26, the young actress Hayden Panettiere is familiar with this problem. Mother of a ten-month-old baby girl named Kaya, Hayden Panettiere has just been hospitalized to treat his postpartum depression. The former cheerleader of the series Heroes“asked for help from a health center herself because she is currently suffering from postpartum depression”, a spokesperson for the actress told People.
The star of the series Nashville gave birth in December 2014 to a baby girl. The actress is in a relationship with Ukrainian professional boxer Wladimir Klitschko. During his visit last month on the morning show Live With Kelly and Michael, broadcast in syndication in the United States, Hayden Panettiere had mentioned this disease, about his character in the series Nashville, Juliette Barnes.
“I can totally understand and relate to this, she had declared. Many women go through this. When you hear about postpartum depression, you think it is about negative feelings towards your child or that you are going to hurt them. I never, ever had such feelings. This is the case for some women indeed. But you can’t imagine all that this covers. It is necessary to talk about it. Women need to know that they are not alone and that it is curable. “
“There are a lot of misunderstandings, a lot of people think it’s not real, that it’s not true, that women make it up, that it’s hormones, added the actress. They put that aside. But this is something that is out of control, very painful and scary, and women need support. “Hayden Panettiere was actually speaking from experience.
