------------------------------------------
from Wikipedia:

"...
With the rise of the Nazi Party, Reiniger and Koch decided to emigrate (both were involved in left-wing politics)[2], but found that no other country would give them permanent visas. As a result, the couple spent the years 1933–1939 moving from country to country, staying as long as travel visas would allow. When they couldn't get a travel visa, they were forced to stay in Germany. Somehow, they still managed to make 12 films during this period, the best-known being Carmen (1933) and Papageno (1935), both based on popular operas (Bizet's Carmen and Mozart's Die Zauberflöte). When World War II commenced, they were forced to stay in Berlin. ..." (WP)

Robotic seagull duplicates biological functions

Festo, a supplier of automation technology, industrial training, and education programs, has developed the SmartBird robotic seagull. SmartBird is capable of autonomous takeoff, flight, and landing, using two meter-long wings. It is modeled very closely on the herring gull, and controls itself the same way birds do, by twisting its body, wings, and tail.

John Callahan obituary

Acerbic cartoonist whose work was suffused with angst

In an interview with the small magazine Emergency Horse, the cartoonist John Callahan, who has died aged 59 of respiratory failure, stated: "I like everything that has to do with the extreme, with angst or suffering or intensity in life. My subjects are all very intense – religion, politics, disease. The real mild things in life I'm not interested in." But what distinguished Callahan, a quadriplegic, was that he was genuinely funny about these subjects. A classic cartoon shows a sheriff and posse surrounding an empty wheelchair. The caption reads: "Don't worry, he won't get far on foot."

Unable to control a pen single-handed, Callahan worked on a tablet on his knees, holding the pen with two hands and drawing from the shoulders. Like that other great humorist, the partially sighted James Thurber, Callahan succeeded in channelling his limitations to create a distinctive style in drawings peopled by characters that he described as "kind of demented, as I think most people are".

As disability was his primary subject, Callahan frequently came under attack from the people he described as "self-righteous assholes who presume to defend the disabled", and delighted in publishing these letters on his website.

Born in Portland, Oregon, Callahan was adopted by an Irish Catholic family at the age of six months. He grew up in the Dalles, a small port on the Columbia river. With a rigid ex-army father, and educated by nuns, he started to rebel. He showed a talent for illicit, often obscene, caricatures of teachers and classmates.

Aged 12, he stole a bottle of gin at his grandmother's wake and thereafter descended rapidly into alcoholism. (He was later to blame this in part on having been sexually abused at the age of eight by a female teacher.) In 1972, he let himself be driven by a friend who was as drunk as he was, who hit a telegraph pole. Callahan's spine was severed.

He continued drinking in rehab and afterwards, until in 1978 he had an epiphany, described in his autobiography: "I knew with utter certainty that my problem was not quadriplegia, it was alcoholism." He went to counselling, joined Alcoholics Anonymous, and never took another drink. (This journey was the subject of his 1989 animation I Think I Was an Alcoholic.)

In 1979, John enrolled in Portland State University, where he gained a bachelor's degree in English. In 1981, he returned to cartooning, initially for Portland State's student magazine, the Vanguard, and received his first hate mail after creating a drawing of a street beggar with a sign reading: "Please help me. I am blind and black but not musical."

After graduating in 1983, he started submitting professionally and eventually sold to Penthouse a cartoon of a construction site with a sign: "WARNING! THIS AREA PATROLLED BY LESBIANS." He was soon selling to magazines such as National Lampoon, Omni and Forum.

At this point, like many artists with disabilities, Callahan experienced problems balancing a fluctuating freelance income with welfare payments. But the rise of political correctness created an environment in which Callahan was able to flourish, with such gags as: "This is a feminist bookstore! There is no humour section!!!" His career kept growing, he found an agent, and was eventually syndicated in some 50 publications, winning the praise of such fans as Gary Larson, PJ O'Rourke, Matt Groening and Camille Paglia.

In 1989 he published a first volume of autobiography, Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot, followed in 1998 by Will the Real John Callahan Please Stand Up?

Callahan originated two television series. Pelswick, which ran from 2000 until 2002, was a children's series about a 13-year-old wheelchair user. The cartoonist was creator and executive producer of John Callahan's Quads (2001), a raucously politically incorrect series made by the Canadian animation house Nelvana.

For the last 12 months, Callahan had been dealing with complications from pressure sores, a constant danger for anyone with spinal cord injury. He is survived by his mother, Rosemary, three brothers and two sisters.

• John Michael Callahan, cartoonist, born 5 February 1951; died 24 July 2010

Kick-Ass and Dragon in photo finish at US box office | Jeremy Kay

As How to Train Your Dragon edged past new entry Kick-Ass to reclaim the US top spot, the movie industry braces for a proposed film futures exchange

The winner
How to Train Your Dragon has benefited from strong word of mouth since it launched one month ago and the family film returned to the top of the US pile at the weekend. The estimated $20m (£13m) haul puts DreamWorks Animation's acclaimed release (through Paramount) on $158.6m and a strong overseas run means the film has grossed more than $330m globally.

In the second photo finish in two weekends, the top two films were separated by only a very small amount. Lionsgate unleashed the action hero romp Kick-Ass and it came in second on a relatively lacklustre $19.8m. Only $200,000 behind Dragon, Kick-Ass may steal top place when box-office numbers are confirmed on Monday. In limited release, Banksy's Exit Through the Gift Shop opened in eight venues, taking $166,000 for an excellent per-site average of $20,750.

The loser
Death at a Funeral opened in fourth place on $17m, and on that showing, on top of the generally low review rating on the aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, it's going to struggle to stick around. Based on the bland original of 2007 and repackaged with Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence, this is a cynical commercial ploy designed to entice the African-American crowd and make money on a good premise. I saw it on Saturday and it's a shame it turned out the way it did. Provide your own funeral jokes.

The real story
On Friday the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) approved the establishment of a futures exchange to trade in box-office opening weekends. This has caused something of a ruckus at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and elsewhere. They fear the mechanism, which will be called the Trend Exchange, will lead to market manipulation and shorting by studios on their own movies. The last thing anybody needs, the head of the MPAA Bob Pisano told me last week, is another derivatives market when it was these same financial devices that got everybody into the financial crisis. Media Derivatives Inc and Cantor Exchange, the parties behind two separate proposals for exchanges, say they will be strictly regulated and will allow studios, for example, to mitigate their risks in releasing movies. The CFTC approved an application by Media Derivatives on Friday and will adjudicate on a second submission, by Cantor Exchange, on Tuesday. Meanwhile US law-makers have tabled a motion to outlaw online futures exchanges based on box-office receipts.

The future
Jennifer Lopez has never been anything like as big in film as she is in music in the US, yet she keeps on plugging away. She returns for the first time in four years with a romcom from CBS Films called The Back-Up Plan; Alex O'Loughlin is the gutsy leading man. Warner Bros has the action film The Losers, starring Zoe Saldana from Avatar, in the tale of a betrayed CIA black ops unit. Disney releases the nature documentary Oceans.
