In this hour of the show, Dr. Hildy discusses something that is near and dear to her heart: Chinese cinema! Returning guest Veronica Hendricks, Movie Director and Producer, joined Dr. Hildy for a delightful conversation about Chinese actor Donnie Yen, who starred in 2014’s The Monkey King, (Official Trailer),  as well as Hero – Official Trailer, and the IP Man series, and American films such as Highlander: Endgame, Blade II – Trailer, and the upcoming Star Wars spinoff, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Trailer, which will finally tell the story of the event in the Star Wars universe that started it all: the Rebel theft of the plans for the Death Star.

Chinese cinema has existed since the earliest days of motion pictures, with the first Chinese film, The Battle of Dingjunshan, made in 1905. In the first decades, the film industry was centered on Shanghai, but after the Japanese invasion of China, filmmakers moved to Hong Kong, returning to Shanghai after the war. During the Cultural Revolution, the film industry was severely restricted, coming almost to a standstill from 1967-72. The industry flourished following, and starting in the mid to late 1980s, the rise of the Fifth Generation brought increased popularity to Chinese cinema abroad, especially among Western arthouse audiences, with films like Red Sorghum, The Story of Qiu Ju, and Farewell My Concubine winning major international awards.

Join Dr. Hildy and her guest  as they discuss Popular Actor Donnie Yen and Chinese cinema on One Cell One Light Radio!

Question for the Prize of the day)

yodaFor centuries, mankind has pondered one of the great eternal mysteries: are we alone in the universe? Is there life beyond our planet? If focusing solely on probability, there has to be – the universe is too vast for us to be all there is. However, there are a number of theories as to why we may be the only life. Regardless, we’ve fantasized about the day when we discover that we are not the only ones out there. This realization has been explored throughout all of our artistic and philosophical endeavors. The most powerful of all of these is cinema: where our imaginations have run wild with what other species may look like, how they may behave, and what they might do when they meet us. 

This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guest, Veronica Hendricks, Movie Director and Producer,  for a discussion on depictions of aliens in the movies. From benevolent explorers, to unstoppable destructive forces, extraterrestrial life has run the gamut of representation, in all styles and genres.

In cinema, aliens are often portrayed as antagonistic. From the genocidal invaders of The War of the Worlds (1953) , War Of The Worlds (2005) and Independence Day , and Independence Day: Resurgence ,
to the more comedic turns in
The World’s End   and
Mars Attacks! (1996)  (Jack Nicholson, Pierce Brosnan Sci-Fi Comedy)  to the the monstrous creatures in
Attack the Block   and  Monsters (2010)  we often look upon the prospect of encountering alien life with fear and violence. This is to be understood as we consider humanity’s past: we often treat lesser-advanced people’s with subjugation and force, so it only makes sense that an advance alien species would do the same to us.

History is a puzzle. Without concrete observations and recordings, it is near impossible to determine exactly what happened in the past. Through logic, reason, and the miracle of modern science, we have learned immense amounts, but there is still so much that remains unknown. Included in this knowledge is terrestrial history – what caused ice ages, extinctions, etc – and extraterrestrial history – events that occurred in outer space, and whether those events impacted our planet. Despite our lack of knowledge, there are some who have theories on our past.

This week on One Cell, One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guest Dr. Edward L. Spencer to discuss the Younger Dryas period in Earth history, it’s cause, and what it means for the future of humanity.

Dr. Spencer graduated from Stanford University in 1957. He also studied at Yale University and worked in his own clinic until his retirement 2012.

The Younger Dryas was a sharp decline in temperature over most of the northern hemisphere, occurring approximately 12,000 to 13,000 years ago. The prevailing theory is that the Younger Dryas was caused by significant reduction of the North Atlantic “Conveyor”, which circulates warm tropical waters northward, in response to a sudden influx of fresh water from Lake Agassiz and deglaciation in North America.

HOUR 1 Audio – Dr. Hildy® and Dr. Kathleen I. Kimball – Chinese Year of the Fire Monkey

This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes to the first hour of the show returning guest Dr. Kathleen I. Kimball, Feng Shui geomancer, expert in world art, and better known as Dr. KIK, to discuss the year of the Fire Monkey and its impact on our lives!

002-lCLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE and/or SAVE and PRINT:

As many know, the Chinese zodiac is divided into twelve signs that rotate year by year, as opposed to Western astrology, which rotates on a monthly basis. 2016 is the year of the Monkey, and this year in particular, the year of the Fire Monkey, which hasn’t happened since 1956.

Monkeys tend to be smart, clever and intelligent, especially in their career and wealth. They are lively, flexible, quick-witted and versatile. In addition, their gentleness and honesty bring them an everlasting love life. Although they were born with enviable skills, they still have several shortcomings, such as an impetuous temper and a tendency to look down upon others.

The Monkey governs the period of 3-5 pm, the late summer, and the West by Southwest direction. While the Monkey’s dominant element is metal, in the Chinese element cycle, fire melts metal, and the transformative environment re-shapes and re-forms. We may all transform this year, especially those who are Monkeys, Roosters, Dogs, and those born in a year ending in 0 or 1. So if you’re entering the middle part of your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, etc… prepare for change!
