Note that the movie the vengeance of the winged snake might be available on the forum soon. I'm currently making some English subtitles.

I was talking about this movie here: http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=1023.msg29461#msg29461

Tonight, the French movie Student services, released in 2010, is available on the forum.
Note that this movie might not be suitable for everyone of the forum, and I'm thinking about akaubee or usman.

After an initial stage of ambivalence and hesitation, I finally decided to upload this movie for the forum. There is no doubt humbert and aa1234779 will enjoy this film. But what about the school boys or the least fortunate of the forum, who could recognize themselves in Laura D.?
In all likelihood, this movie won't turn out to be a mirror reflecting their inner world.

My opinion: In the first 20 minutes of the movie, the predicament of the young student induces a state of queasy anticipation. The scenes with a world of lurid colors are intertwined with darker scenes. The viewers of the forum will certainly notice the stark contrast between the young student and the elderly customers.

The story:
Laura D. is a modern language student at a Paris university who desperately wants to do well in school. She works a part-time job but cannot make ends meet. One evening in which she is short of funds, she answers a personal ad online by "Joe," 57, who seeks a female student for "tender moments." The pay is  per hour. Laura pledges to do this just once, and three days later, she goes to a hotel room with Joe. And then her spiral begins.

In French with English subtitles.

I liked the movie very much!
I watched my X files for the first time. I thought it was a spoof like naked gun.

When I was in secondary school, I was a fan of this series. But it was a bit frightening.

I jump forward sometimes to avoid those scenes.

Tonight, I'm going to talk about the movie Unseen enemy.

Unseen Enemy is an essential exploration of reasons 21st-century populations are experiencing a rash of diseases that were once only outbreaks, but have now become full-blown epidemics. This increased risk that we face, and the ways society and individuals can work together to reduce that risk, are explained to the public through the case studies of three epidemics: Ebola, influenza and Zika. Moving across the globe, we meet doctors, disease detectives and everyday people who have stepped into the horror of an epidemic and emerged deeply changed. Epidemics bring out the best and worst of human behavior, with effects reaching far beyond the tolls of sickness and death.

I haven't seen the movie but I do know the situation with epidemics is not as bad as it seems, and improving. Back in the 1980's HIV was a death sentence. Today that's no longer the case. A few years ago we were helpless against ebola. There are now vaccines and better methods of treatment. Cases or ebola are down, survivorship is up. Despite the fact that both your father and mine died of cancer, even there survivorship is much higher than it used to be, and slowly increasing as time passes. Some 12 years ago I survived cancer. If it had been 20 years earlier I would not be posting this message today.

What cancer did you have?
Concerning diseases spread by mosquitoes, I'm a bit pessimistic, because the effects of climate change will allow some species to go where they were not able to go before. Before 2008 there was no tiger mosquito in France.
For example, I was in the South of France this summer (actually somewhere between Lyon and Marseille), and I stumbled upon a tiger mosquito (I killed him so I was able to check that). I had never seen one before. some users of the forum like you, Maher or Vasudev probably know it already. They need warm climates but they are unable to live in the desert. With warmer Winters, they are rapidly spreading to Northern Europe and Northern America.

Esophageal. I felt some mild difficulty swallowing and at first thought nothing of it. Deciding to err on the side of caution, I went to the gastroenterologist where an endoscopy confirmed the results. I got 6 months of punishing chemotherapy followed by a month of intense radiation. The treatment was so severe I was hospitalized twice. In the end the tumor was eradicated and hasn't returned in 12 years. 20 years ago PET scans didn't exist. This meant the surgeon would have to cut me open and attempt to remove the tumor. This would not have worked in my case since the cancer was inoperable.

The Tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) is native to southeast Asia and is an invasive specie everywhere else. We all know what happens when a specie is inadvertently introduced to a place where it doesn't belong. History is rife with examples. Either way, I wouldn't be as pessimistic as you are. You know what happened to Ferdinand de Lesseps when he attempted to build the Panama Canal. Eventually the problem was solved and yellow fever eradicated. I've been to Panama twice and haven't seen a single mosquito. An even better example is South Florida. The Everglades are arguably the most mosquito-infested area in the world. It can't be sprayed because it would have an negative effect on the delicate environment. Despite this, the human population continues to grow and thrive.
