Personality Capture and Emulation is the gateway to an amazing future that actually may be achieved, enabling the preservation and simulation of human personalities at progressively higher levels of fidelity. This challenge is no longer the province merely of uninhibited visionaries, but has become a solid field of research, drawing upon a wide range of information technologies in human-centered computing and cyber-human systems. Even at modest levels of accomplishment, research in this emerging area requires convergence of cognitive, social, and cultural sciences, in cooperation with information engineering and artificial intelligence, thus stimulating new multidisciplinary perspectives. Therefore this book will inspire many specific research and development projects that will produce their own valuable outcomes, even as the totality of the work moves us closer to a major revolution in human life. Will it ever really be possible to transfer a human personality at death to a technology that permits continued life? Or will people come to see themselves as elements in a larger socio-cultural system, for which a societal information system can provide collective immortality even after the demise of individuals? A large number and variety of pilot studies and programming projects are offered as prototypes for research that innovators in many fields may exploit for the achievement of their own goals. Together, they provide an empirical basis to strengthen the intellectual quality of several current debates at the frontiers of the human and information sciences.

Women Desire and Power in Italian Cinema

Women, Desire, and Power in Italian Cinema offers, for the first time in Italian Cinema criticism, a contextual study of the representation of women in twentieth-century Italian films. Marga Cottino-Jones argues that the ways women are depicted on screen reflects a subconscious "sexual conservatism" typical of an Italian society rooted within a patriarchal ideology. The book then follows the slow but constant process of social awareness in the Italian society through women in film, especially after the 1950s. Comprehensive in scope, this book analyzes the films of internationally known male and female directors, such as Antonioni, Fellini, Rossellini, Visconti, Bertolucci, Benigni, Cavani, Wertmuller, Comencini, and Archibugi. Special consideration is given to the actresses and actors that have become the icons of Italian femininity and masculinity, such as Sofia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Silvana Mangano, Gian Carlo Giannini, Marcello Mastroianni, and Alberto Sordi.

Giuseppe De Santis and Postwar Italian Cinema

One of the founding fathers of the Neo-realist movement and a Communist dedicated to populist filmmaking, Guiseppe De Santis (b. 1917) has been a significant force in Italian cinema. In spite of his crucial contribution De Santis has received little critical recognition and his work has been largely excluded from the canon of traditional cinematic teaching. In this first book-length study of De Santis, Antonio Vitti explores the filmmaker's life and work, and addresses why he has been marginalized as a result of the politics of critical reception in Italian cinema and within the academy. Through critical analysis of such films as Riso amaro (Bitter Rice), Non c'è pace tra gli ulivi ( No Peace Among the Olives), and Cesta Duga Godinu Dana (The One-Year-Long Road), Vitti offers an informative profile of a director who refused to compromise what were often unpopular political and aesthetic principles. De Santis emerged as a strong opponent of government censorship in Fascist Italy and strove throughout his career to remain faithful to his political objectives: to create a genuine popular narrative voice, and to offer, through filmmaking, a form of entertainment for the masses and a means of promoting social and political change. At the same time, possessed of considerable technical abilities and a passion for formalized beauty and sensuality, De Santis resisted the rigid rules for socio-realistic representation dictated by the Soviet Union. He conformed neither to the mainstream nor to the leftist critical expectations of his day. He anticipated, in his own critical approach, the direction of contemporary film theory, and focused on the role of the medium itself as a means of mass communication and a repository of collective imagination. Vitti draws on his extensive personal interviews with De Santis as well as on the latter's previously unpublished writings. This volume captures the intelligence, passion, aesthetic flair, and occasionally fiery temperament of this important filmmaker.

The founding editor of Every Day with Rachael Ray reinvents America's favorite dishes for a gluten- and dairy-free world — no compromises to flavor or texture accepted. “The fact that everything she makes is gluten-free is astonishing.” —Food & Wine When doctors diagnosed Silvana Nardone’s son with intolerances to gluten and dairy, she embarked on a quest to develop dishes for the toughest critics of all: her kids. To do so, she drew on her experience as a professional baker and her work in magazine test kitchens. She deciphered labels and tested obsessively. The result: dishes that taste exactly like their supermarket, bakery, and take-out counterparts, from Cinnamon-Swirl Pancakes to Crispy Chicken Taquitos to Baked Ham-and-Cheese Manicotti. Every mom on the block will want the recipes for her high-rising, light sandwich loaf, deep-dish pizza, and chocolate-chip cookie dough ice cream sandwiches. Silvana shares every last secret she has learned over the years from her formulations of gluten-free all-purpose flour; pancake, waffle, and biscuit mix; homemade and rich-tasting nondairy substitutes for milk, yogurt, and ricotta; and other essentials that are key to making the best food possible.

"Be careful what you wish for: you might get it..." “But what is this land that you call Incantera Sylvana? How did we stumble into it when all we did was to go into the woods to fetch a healing herb for our mother?” Daphne slowly turned her eyes from the trees and brought them back to rest on the face of her inquisitor. She took considerable time before answering, as if assessing Col and his ability to understand what she was about to impart. Col never flinched and stood with his feet slightly apart, determined to solve the mystery of the land into which he and his sister had stumbled. Seeing his resolve, Daphne at last spoke. “Incantera Sylvana is what remains of what was once a perfect world. Here all of creation is in balance and lives in harmony. It is largely unchanged from its original state, with only a few changes that have come to mar it. And those changes came after the advent of Man, who can not touch anything without spoiling it, all the while under the delusion that he improves what he changes, never seeing, never caring, that nothing needed improving except in his mind. “I have always lived here; and I shall go on living here until the day this world ends, whenever that may be. It is my charge to care for the forest and this I love to do.” Here Daphne paused for so long that Molle thought she was finished speaking and prompted her to go on. “And? What of Man? How did he come to be here, and who lived here originally besides yourself?” “The Fairy Folk have always lived here,” Daphne answered, “and they have the rule of the realm. There are others with limited reign over their immediate domain, such as the Gnomes and the Trolls. They are not to be treated lightly, for their power to harm those who offend them is terrible, as those so foolish to do so soon discover. “Man was never part of this world, but there is a door that opens on occasion, through which he stumbles and always brings some grief on our land. Always he seeks to make improvements and by his attempts he spoils what was once perfect. And when he discovers the secret of Incantera Sylvana he becomes more terrible still as he attempts to mold our world to his will. “Man has long been the bane of this land, and yet we have been unable to stop his coming. He does not enter often enough that we see where he found the door, and he does not tell us when he is apprehended. If we could but seal the door we should do so, but we have never been able to find it and so prevent his entrance into our world.” From L. M. Roth, author of the Quest For the Kingdom series, Abelard and the Dragon's Vapor, and Arise My Love The Princess Who Fell Asleep comes a haunting tale of terror in an enchanted forest. A brother and sister on an errand stumble through the door to another world. In the land of Incantera Sylvana, anything you wish for is possible. But will they discover that their dreams come true might turn out to be their worst nightmare in time to save themselves? Or will they pay the ultimate penalty for trespassing where mortals are not welcome?
