    "..... The film made the best-of-the-year lists of many prominent critics (and Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar) and in 2016 was ranked among the 100 greatest since 2000 in an international poll of 177 critics. It also won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.....
    Peter Bradshaw said in his review in The Guardian, “for its intense, unbearable melancholy, the final end-title sequence has to be watched through to the very end until the screen goes dark.”

  2. How Your Brain Tricks You Into Taking Risks During the Pandemic

    Experts who study the way we think and make decisions say that it can be more than politics driving our decision-making this year.

    The unprecedented nature of the pandemic undermines how we process information and assess risk.

    Need proof? Look around.........

    "..........Poker players, along with folks like meteorologists, horse race handicappers and lawyers who work on a contingency basis are routinely rewarded or punished based on the odds.

    This gives them a rare visceral, experiential understanding of percentages and lets them short-circuit a cognitive effect called the “description-experience gap,” which leads people to underestimate risk based on their own personal experiences..........

    "........public health officials in the United States were slow to sound an alarm. “People have trouble recognizing when they’re facing a catastrophic threat and on the other hand they exaggerate minor threats,” Toner said. “We needed messaging from the top of the government that says this is a serious threat.”

  3. Trump gave his Thanksgiving press conference from a tiny desk that looks like a throwback to a 2017 'SNL' skit

    • President Donald Trump on Thursday held his first press conference since losing the US election.
    • But observers became focused on Trump's tiny desk, rather than his groundless attacks of the US electoral system.
    • Some compared the situation to a 2017 "Saturday Night Live" sketch that used a similarly tiny desk as a punch line to mock the president.

    “It’s not Black Friday. It’s not people waiting in line the way we’re used to,” said Marshal Cohen, chief retail analyst at The NPD Group. Cohen said in hours of driving around retail centers, he saw lines only outside Macy’s flagship New York City store and a suburban Best Buy. “All the other stores, you would have thought it was like any other Friday in November,” he said.......
