Estimado Augusto:

Te reenvío esta información sobre cursos que se dictan a través de Internet relativos al intercambio y formación en Salud y educación.
Como verás, me encuentro entre sus docentes y autores, en la 6a. Edición del Curso "Los cuentos en la aventura de crecer. Arte y Psicoanálisis".
En él y a través de internet, hay clases que constan de escritos, ilustraciones y pistas de audio, para trabajar y pensar sobre la experiencia del encuentro del niño con el mundo del arte, en particular con los cuentos.
Con el marco del Psicoanálisis, reflexionar sobre las posibilidades que le brinda la experiencia artística al sujeto en el camino de su consolidación como ser creativo y libre, en su relación consigo, con los otros y con el mundo.

Los otros Cursos abordan problemáticas relativas a la educación, la salud y lo social.
Me gusta mucho el Newletter. Es de excelente calidad y las cosas que tiene son un hallazgo y un placer. Muchas gracias por compartirlo.
Saludos!

Andrea Rur.

Beijing´s Diving Eye: DiveCam

Now Diving: Sir Isaac Newton

Low-Tech Camera Uses No-Tech Gravity to Drop Viewers Into the Pool

By BARRY NEWMAN
The Wall Street Journal, August 13, 2008; Page A18

BEIJING -- High-tech televisual bells and whistles have carried couch-based Olympic watching way beyond the mere reality of being here. Thousands of cameras are catching the action in China -- every one of them high-definition. Yet for a feat of engineering magic that dazzles as it baffles, nothing beats the DiveCam.

Beiging's Diving Eye
CAMERA VIEW
See an interactive graphic

On TV, a diver walks out onto a platform. The camera fixes on him. He waits. He leaps. And then -- somehow -- the camera stays with him as he plunges. In the instant it takes him to break the water's surface, the picture suddenly cuts to an underwater shot -- and we watch in disbelief as the dive culminates in a burst of bubbles.

How do they do it?

Well, there's a rope. There's a pulley. And the rope and the pulley work a contraption made out of a pipe. The whole gizmo is based on the brilliant insight that objects fall at the same rate regardless of mass. A Tuscan by the name of Galileo came up with it about 400 years ago; if he were alive, he'd call it cutting edge. And there's the beauty of it: It's sophisticated, yes, but only because it's simple.

Why keep this a secret? They put the camera into the pipe. When the diver dives, they drop the camera.

"Ideally," Rob Brear said the other day, "the diver and the camera drop at the same time." Mr. Brear, who is the DiveCam's chief dropper, was in Beijing's colossal "Water Cube," the National Aquatic Center, standing behind a plastic screen on a ledge built just below the diving tower's 10-meter platform. Between him and the platform, the DiveCam's pipe hung suspended by a chain from the roof.

Mr. Brear, a 54-year-old Australian, was warming up -- with the divers -- for the first platform events of the Games on Monday and Tuesday. "After the camera drops," he went on, "what you do is you pull it up again." Ken East, another Australian and Mr. Brear's teammate, sat behind him on a stool with his hand on the pulley's brake. "It's called gravity," he said.

Two Australian divers appeared on the platform for practice and noticed Mr. Brear and Mr. East on the ledge beneath them. "How do you get in there?" Briony Cole asked. Mr. Brear replied, "You just climb." Melissa Wu said, "That's scary!"

She and Ms. Cole then executed synchronized triple somersaults as Mr. Brear let go of his rope and dropped the DiveCam.

The idea for this wizardry came to David Neal, now NBC's Olympic production supervisor, in what he recalls as an Isaac Newton moment. It was in the lobby bar of the Ritz-Carlton 13 years ago in Atlanta ahead of that city's Olympics. He and an associate had been to the diving venue where they had climbed the 10-meter platform.

"When you stand up there," he says, "it makes you marvel at what these athletes will do. We were thinking: What must it be like to plummet from that height? How can we capture the sensation?"

At which point the apple landed on Mr. Neal's head: "Why not let gravity do the work?" On the requisite cocktail napkin, and in keeping with Sir Isaac's universal laws, he sketched a cartoonish doohickey. Then came his true inspiration: Mr. Neal hired a dean of cinematic ingenuity to make it work.

Garrett Brown revolutionized the movie business 38 years ago when he invented the Steadicam, a mechanical arm for cameramen that smooths away the jerkiness of hand-held shots. Much later, he came up with the Skycam, which rides a web of wires above the heads of football players. In between, Mr. Brown, 66 years old, got his one-line brief from NBC: "They wanted a camera," he says, "that stayed with divers, including going underwater with them."

He calls it "one of those lovely problems that keep you up at 4 a.m., building things in your mind." The DiveCam couldn't be big or noisy. And it had to be close enough to the diver to "make you feel like you were in a race car, looking sideways, heading into the water."

The obvious answer: a camera in a tube. "Here's the tube," Mr. Brown said before the Olympics in the workshop at his country house in Pennsylvania. He cleared a space among the nuts and bolts on a benchtop to make room for a sample of custom-extruded aluminum piping. "The DiveCam has 53 feet of this," he said.

The falling camera rides a rail on the inside of the pipe. A glass strip runs along the pipe's full length; the camera takes its picture through the glass. From the diving platform to the water line, the glass is smoky. Below the line, it's clear, so the camera need not adjust its exposure as it streaks into underwater darkness.

The pipe is caulked. The camera drops through air. "It doesn't splash into the water," Mr. Brown said. "That would look horrible."

A camera in free fall raises an issue: How do you stop it? Newton didn't have a bungee cord, but Mr. Brown did. One hooked to the pool's roof stopped the camera just before it hit bottom. A one-way pulley locked when the camera reached the end of its rope, just above the pool bottom, and kept it from recoiling.

Once that problem was solved, Mr. Brown ironed out a kink to keep the camera's electric cable from snapping, and devised an extra tilt-and-pan control, monitored by a cameraman, to make doubly sure that divers stay within the picture's frame. Mr. Brown calls his completed DiveCam a "pure idea," except for one thing: Objects all may fall at the same rate, but all divers actually don't.

Dives in the straight-legged pike position take longer, for instance, because the upkick of the legs momentarily holds the body suspended. And not all divers fall through the same space: Some fall closer to the platform; some thrust themselves farther out. "It means you can't just drop the camera," Mr. Brown says. "Somebody has to operate it."

In China, that somebody is Mr. Brear. He started out as a toolmaker and has spent 34 years as a technician for the Seven Network in Australia. As newer and newer technologies pile on, Mr. Brear has been shepherding his Newtonian camera to diving events around the world since 2000. Now he is on loan to the organization feeding the world the bulk of its pooled Olympic pictures -- Beijing Olympic Broadcasting, BOB for short.

Mr. Brear refined Mr. Brown's bungees and pulleys down to a wheel-filled box screwed to the inside wall of his ledge. His only other gear is a pair of rubber garden gloves to help grip the black nautical rope that runs to the DiveCam. He was gripping it hard as Matthew Mitcham, another Australian, appeared on the platform.

"Running dives are easy -- you nail most of them," said Mr. Brear, eyes fixed on his monitor. "Handstands are hardest. Divers go up a bit first. You have to take the rope up, then let go. Some people pick this up straight away, others can't do it at all."

The diver stood on the platform's edge -- when his hips twitched, Mr. Brear tensed -- and then launched himself into a forward flying somersault. With a flourish, Mr. Brear released his rope. The camera fell with a whoosh and jolted to a stop with a shudder that shook the diving tower.

From top to bottom, the diver stayed inside the DiveCam monitor's frame. "Nailed it," said Mr. Brear.

It is deep summer in the late 1960s in Central Park, and nobody is keeping off the grass. A heady concentration of anarchic youth has come out to play, flooding the shaggy green patch of turf that has been made of the stage at the open-air Delacorte Theater. And the whiff of hedonism that this crowd emanates induces a serious contact high in anyone who comes near it.

The pure hormonal vitality that courses through the Public Theater’s exuberant production of “Hair,” which officially opened Thursday night, is enough to make it the pick-me-up event of New York’s dog days this year. But middle-aged audience members who revisit this landmark work from 1967 in search of the feckless flower children they once were are likely to uncover more than they bargained for.
