By Michael Cieply. The rules have changed again. This year, candidates for the 17 open slots on a member board self-submit their names, go through no qualifying round, and are elected on a branch-by-branch preferential ballot with up to five ranked choices, like the annual Best Picture vote. For starters, based on a hand-count, and apologies to anyone who got missed, there appear to be candidates for the 17 open seats, or nine candidates per seat.
But they are not spread evenly among the branches. The actors branch appears to have 19 contenders including incumbent Whoopi Goldberg , former governor Ed Begley Jr. The makeup artists and hairstylists branch seems to have only one candidate, Linda Flowers, whose election prospects are looking good. As it turns out, according to an Academy spokesperson, the list of candidates were not to be disclosed to the public—it was accessible only to Academy members, one or more of whom or a staffer , in the spirit of the times, leaked it to the press as an anonymous source who could not be quoted because he, she or they were not authorized to comment.
Whatever purpose the limitation might serve, it certainly discourages coalition-building among newly elected governors, who will make up one-third of the board. In a further twist, as if one were needed, those candidate statements—which are optional—are strictly limited to a length of 1, characters. But, just for fun, I managed to get a look at the candidates list for one branch, the producers—and it makes an intriguing case study. This year, the producers find 16 candidates vying for their open board seat.
There is no incumbent, since Albert Berger, though eligible to run for re-election, is not on the list of self-submitted. Among those running, one, Jennifer Fox, appears to have no statement at all.

Jessie Christiansen. On a cool Tuesday evening in Hollywood, I find myself sitting in a circle with fifteen others when astrophysicist Jessie Christiansen walks up to us with a roulette-style carnival wheel in hand. Instead of numbers, each space features the name of a different exoplanet, or planet outside of our solar system: Keplerf, Trappist-1e, PSO J By spinning the wheel, you hop on a theoretical spaceship that can travel thousands of light-years away, land on one of the exoplanets, and find out how that particular exoplanet will kill you.
It turns out that humans are really fragile. Roughly entertainment professionals and scientists gathered together at NeueHouse Hollywood, broke up into small groups, and spent the evening listening to experts from the fields of physics, neuroscience, plant biology, and infectious disease. For instance, you might be fooled into thinking Keplerf would sustain human life, since it has a rocky surface and the right temperature for liquid water.
Ari Novy. And in some cases, different cultures have taken a single plant and moved it into very, very different morphology. Those three vegetables—along with cauliflower, cabbage, collard greens, and kohlrabi—are all cultivars of the species Brassica oleracea. They would not be found growing wild in nature in that form, and neither would most of the produce we know and love.
Undomesticated corn looks like a little grass with hard seeds on top, while strawberries and sunflowers grow to a much smaller size in the wild.

Discovering such mini marvels as Speed Dating , written and directed by Meghann Artes , is not only tipping the iceberg of new film ventures, but also makes all the hard work that goes into the Femme Filmmakers Festival completely worth it. Promoting the work, these short films, to make them so much more so accessible, fills me with great enjoyment and exhilaration. Speaking with Artes for not nearly enough time, I wanted to hear her motives and passion going into such a project, as well praising the filmmaker on this fine achievement.
I told her my 5 year-old daughter watched both Speed Dating and Sleepy Steve , and loved them. We are shooting in a live action film setting, with the lights, and the actors, the same crew you would use, but were also shoot a stop motion film. And, like with puppets, they would move little bits, arm movements, so slow. It could take two hours to shoot two seconds, just walking across the room, you really have to break down movements into twelve different stages.
It is really amazing, the organic nature of the actors. It could be reality, this is our word we live in, but something is a little off. A bit alternate in reality, but you know you could live there. And there is something magical about it. I am really into that hybrid nature.
