Dunkirk

(movie review of Dunkirk (2017), Directed by Christopher Nolan)
On land, at sea and in the air, the WWII British soldier fights for survival in a mayhem of fire and steel. Christopher Nolan masterfully combined music, shots and historical reenactment in order to create an incredible cinema experience: I was there, on the beach, suffered with those men and felt the glory of salvation.

The Red Queen

There is a concept in sociology and evolutionary sciences for that obsession with constantly improving known as the Red Queen principle, which is the amount of energy it takes to maintain our social status (from Alice in Wonderland’s Red Queen, who says that “it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place”). In programming, this is represented by the constant background learning required just to maintain an up-to-date knowledge of the field.
