In 1959, Truman Capote was a popular writer for The New Yorker. He learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Halcomb, Kansas. Inspired by the story, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to the town to do research for an article. However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, "In Cold Blood". He arranges extensive interviews with the prisoners, especially with Perry Smith. However, his feelings of compassion for Perry conflicts with his need for closure for his book which only an execution can provide. That conflict and the mixed motives for both interviewer and subject make for a troubling experience that would produce an literary account that would redefine modern non-fiction

"En novembre 1959, Truman Capote, auteur de Breakfast at Tiffany's et personnalité très en vue, apprend dans le New York Times le meurtre de quatre membres d'une famille de fermiers du Kansas. Ce genre de fait divers n'est pas rare, mais celui-ci l'intrigue. En précurseur, il pense qu'une histoire vraie peut être aussi passionnante qu'une fiction si elle est bien racontée. Il voit là l'occasion de vérifier sa théorie et persuade le magazine The New Yorker de l'envoyer au Kansas. Il part avec une amie d'enfance, Harper Lee. A son arrivée, son apparence et ses manières provoquent d'abord l'hostilité de ces gens modestes qui se considèrent encore comme une part du Vieil Ouest, mais il gagne rapidement leur confiance, et notamment celle d'Alvin Dewey, l'agent du Bureau d'Investigation qui dirige l'enquête. "De sang froid" , film de Richard Brooks réal. en 1967, s'inspire de ce même fait divers."

En noviembre de 1959, el escritor Truman Capote lee un artículo en el New York Times que relata el sangriento asesinato de los cuatro miembros de la familia Clutter en su granja de Kansas. Aunque sucesos similares aparecen en los periódicos todos los días, algo llama la atención de Capote, que quiere utilizar este caso para demostrar una teoría: en las manos de un escritor adecuado, la realidad puede resultar tan apasionante como la ficción. Junto a su amiga Harper Lee, Capote consigue que la revista The New Yorker le envíe a Kansas para cubrir la noticia. Su voz aniñada, su amaneramiento y su peculiar forma de vestir despiertan en un principio la hostilidad en esa zona del país, pero Capote se gana pronto la confianza de los lugareños y la del agente encargado de la investigación, Alvin Dewey

"Mit einer Baseball-Mannschaft geht es bergab, weil der finanzschwache Verein seine Spitzenspieler nicht halten kann. Zusammen mit seinem neuen Partner sucht ihr auch privat gebeutelter Manager sein Heil in der gegenteiligen Strategie: Er verpflichtet Spieler, die von anderen Vereinen ausgemustert wurden, und beweist, dass auch in "Losern" jede Menge Potenzial stecken kann. Sportfilm nach bewährtem Muster, der sich dank seiner emotionalen und bildgewaltigen Inszenierung sowie der herausragenden Besetzung zum mitreißenden Plädoyer für Spielfreude, Solidarität und Unkorrumpierbarkeit durch die Dominanz kapitalistischer Marktmechanismen im Sport mausert."

"Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) wakes up one morning to a harsh new reality: the team he carefully constructed is about to be gutted. His star reliever, best starter and offensive leader are fleeing to teams that offer more money. His best position player is going to the Yankees, who just beat the A's in the postseason. Beane scrambles to field a credible team, but his owner won't raise his budget and his scouting staff is stuck in the past. During a meeting with the Cleveland Indians, Beane notices their GM paying careful attention to the opinions of one Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), a chubby young statistics nerd who's brilliant with computers and spreadsheets. Brand has developed a radical new system whereby players aren't evaluated in the traditional way, a system Beane enthusiastically adopts a system they dub "moneyball." "

Considerations of hydrodynamic stability impose severe restrictions on the design of electron and ion beam imploded fusion targets. Furthermore, in order to obtain a sufficiently spherical implosion, many target designs require electron or ion beams having a high degree of spherical symmetry. We have studied the stability and symmetry requirements of several recently proposed target designs by numerical simulation using the computer program LASNEX. The ion beam targets we have studied are more vulnerable to instability than the electron beam targets
