Internet search giant Google has started rolling out the dark theme support for Google Docs, Sheets and Slides for Android smartphone users. This was announced by the company on a G suite blog post where it said that these platforms will automatically adapt the dark mode for handsets, so users will not have to separately enable it. However, they will get the option to turn off dark mode for Docs, Sheets, or Slides independently. If users customise this, the app will stay in that mode irrespective of what theme the smartphone is working on.

But even as many distributors whisked their products out of harm’s way, others decided to confront the uncertainty of lockdown head on. Curzon Artificial Eye, a company with a distribution wing whose recent successes include Cold War and The Souvenir, as well as a chain of arthouse cinemas and its own streaming platform, Curzon Home Cinema, opted to stick as closely as possible to its planned release schedule, albeit through streaming rather than cinemas. “Basically, there were two reasons that we were going to survive,” says the head of Curzon, Philip Knatchbull. “One was because of Parasite” – the UK release of the Oscar-winning Korean film had been a huge critical and financial success – “and the other was because of Curzon Home Cinema.” He adds: “We are hurting enormously. We are losing I don’t know how much a week. We don’t have any grants or … [Read more...] about The future of film: can cinema survive Covid-19?

"Some days under the house were a joy, with the crystal clusters virtually painting themselves; others were a struggle where I had to wrestle the perspectives, tones, and textures into shape. Some of these qualities feel residual in the attitude of the finished paintings; some are light, or slippery, while others are tough and resistant. All of them are shapeshifters with the capacity to recede and flatten, then quicken and glow." … [Read more...] about From the basement into the light
