                    [post_content] => "Friends: The Reunion", the highly anticipated special dedicated to the six characters of one of the most loved television series from the ‘90s, aired on May 27th.

Interestingly, the New York Times noted that, even in its early years, many young people in the non-native English-speaking world learnt English through this American comedy.

Seventeen years after the last episode of "Friends", students and teachers confirm that the television series remains a useful learning resource. Even though some settings seem outdated, the themes and plot are universal and remain current. The episodes present scenarios of everyday life that feel familiar even to people living far away from Manhattan, while the language is much more accessible than other popular TV series such as "Seinfeld" and "The Big Bang Theory".

Carter, a long-time collaborator of the director Spike Lee. Her forty-year career is retraced through 60 of her most beautiful costumes along with dozens of studies and sketches. The centre of the exhibition are her creations for the Marvel film "Black Panther" (2018), which earned her an Academy Award for Best Costume Design after her previous nominations for "Malcolm X" (1992) and "Amistad" (1997). Carter was the first black woman to receive this award. The artist defined Afrofuturism as a marriage between technology and imagination, a “philosophy that allows black Americans, Africans and Indigenous Peoples to believe and create free from slavery and colonialism”. The exhibition is on display at SCAD FASH - Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta, USA until September 12, 2021.

One of the experiments selected in the program was a concert held in Liverpool last Sunday to an audience of 5,000 fans. The attendees took a rapid test the day before the event, but no mask or social distancing was required during the concert. The experiment will also be an opportunity to study other factors such as movement and interaction among the audience, ventilation, and food and alcohol consumption. The goal is to understand if concerts can actually take place after the 21st of June as planned by the UK government.

The film, which aired on the American public channel PBS on April 5, lasts a total of six hours and is divided into three parts: A Writer (1899-1929), The Avatar (1929-1944) and The Blank Page (1944-1961). According to The New Yorker, the directors wanted to reveal the ambitious and complicated man behind the myth and his art. Additional content is available on the PBS website, such as an interactive timeline covering the writer's life and a series of virtual events with commentary from directors and other experts. Educational materials are also available, including an Educator Guide, as well as videos dedicated to his public identity, literary analysis and his literary style.

Much has been discussed in the world of publishing lately about who is best suited for translating her work. In fact, entrusting the translation to a white person was called into question as her poetry is connected to racial issues and Afro-American identity. In the Netherlands and Spain, the translators initially chosen were replaced. The Dutch writer Marieke Lucas Rijneveld, the youngest person to have received the International Booker Prize, was replaced because Rijneveld's identity and background are far from those of Gorman. The text translated by the Catalan poet Victor Obiols was rejected because the publishing house stated a preference for a translator who is "a woman, young, an activist and preferably black".

Directed by Doug Liman, the film tells the story of a couple living in London during the first lockdown. The main characters are played by Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The couple are on the verge of separating, but the arrival of the pandemic forces them into domestic isolation. When the wife is fired, the couple decide to steal a precious diamond from Harrods, the luxury department store. Screenwriter Steven Knight talked about what it meant to write a film about the ongoing pandemic. He talked about the Zoom scenes included in the film, or the use of new expressions like 'social distancing’, 'new normal' or 'Covid-friendly.'

The historian, James Bulgin, who curated the exhibition, explained that the narrative of the Holocaust almost always revolves around the same themes, such as deportation trains and gas chambers. These aspects are important but the story is far more complex. Often the perpetrators of crimes are represented as ‘brainwashed, hyper-radicalized people’. The goal of this new section is to explain that most of the people responsible were ‘ordinary’ and ‘normal’ people in their daily life.    
A study of 8,000 English secondary school pupils showed that 63% of young people did not know what the term ‘antisemitism’ meant (Centre for Holocaust Education, 2016). It’s as urgent now as any time to increase the public understanding of the Second World War and Holocaust. (IWM Website)

These books, films and music were published 95 years ago, during what has been called “the greatest year for books ever”. In fact, the writer Jane Ciabattari explained that 1925 was a year with unique characteristics, when major works were written and the style of prose changed. The books reflected the world of the “lost generation”, a generation devastated by the brutality of the First World War. F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway are among the English-language works published in 1925.

Guiding the visitors is Newt Scamander, an expert on magical animals from J. K. Rowling's fantasy series. The museum is currently closed to the public but many of the contents of the exhibition can be consulted online. Highlights, stories and virtual games are available through Google Arts & Culture. You can discover many interesting curiosities about 11 animals of the natural and fantastic world, as well as learn more about the work of scientists who deal with animal protection. You can take part in a Puzzle Party or create new creatures using different colours. You can take a virtual tour through the exhibition halls with 360° Google Streetview.

Interestingly, the New York Times noted that, even in its early years, many young people in the non-native English-speaking world learnt English through this American comedy. Seventeen years after the last episode of "Friends", students and teachers confirm that the television series remains a useful learning resource. Even though some settings seem outdated, the themes and plot are universal and remain current. The episodes present scenarios of everyday life that feel familiar even to people living far away from Manhattan, while the language is much more accessible than other popular TV series such as "Seinfeld" and "The Big Bang Theory".
