There’s a new big dipper in the nighttime sky. No, it’s not a cozy constellation, but a distant, non-descript star that behaves like a shipboard semaphore, beaming flashes of light into the cosmic darkness that seem random, but may not be. While the luminous output from everyday stars is relentlessly steady, this one occasionally dips its brightness as much as 20 percent, suggesting either that it is orbited by lumps of dust, rock or other opaque material, or – and hang onto your desk chair – there are residents in this stellar system who have deliberately built hardware of a size and extent big enough to intercept a substantial amount of their sun’s output.

Precious jewels have provided fodder for drama practically since drama was invented, with precious stones and trinkets used as plot devices in plays written as far back as 100 B.C. As man-made substitutes such as rhinestones , moissanite , and cubic zirconium started making the market for seemingly-precious stones more, well, precious, so did the real thing become more dramatic to seek out on film. Here are a few of the most sought after, revered and iconic pieces of jewelry dramatized for our viewing pleasure.
2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” was a massive hit. Even before the movie managed to pull in close to $800,000,000 at the box office worldwide, we knew there was going to be a sequel (even before the movie hit theaters we knew there was going to be a sequel ). Now that sequel has a name.

For people who love movie scores — these are real people, we assure you — last year was a peak time. From Steven Price’s Oscar-winning “Gravity” score to smaller ones from Joel P. West (“Short Term 12”) and Graham Reynolds (“Before Midnight”), 2013’s movie scores had a cue for every mood.
In the few short years she’s been on the Hollywood scene, Washington native Mikaela Hoover has racked up an impressive array of appearances in such high profile fare as How I Met Your Mother , Anger Management , Two and a Half Men , and more, but it’ s safe bet that her biggest credit to date is in the smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy , the year’s number one film at the domestic box office (with good reason, if you read my review ). I had a chance to talk to the actress recently about her turn as Glenn Close’s assistant in the Marvel Studios pic, and she was happy to share stories of her time on the set, including what it was like working so close to Close, and her reaction when she first heard the news that friend James Gunn had gotten the gig to direct the high profile film.

Jessika Méndez | MEDIOTIEMPO (Corresponsal) Monterrey, Nuevo León, México, lunes 10 de Noviembre del 2014 De 20 ocasiones que ha tenido una racha extensa sin ganar, sólo en dos ha calificado Chivas ha ayudado a Rayados a salir de un mal momento Desde que le pegó 3-1 al Bicampeón del futbol mexicano, el León, Rayados parece haber caído en una maldición; La Pandilla no logra ganar desde que lo hizo en esa Jornada 11 del actual torneo y su mala racha podría dejarlo fuera de la Liguilla. Con 24 unidades y dos juegos por celebrar, Monterrey está a un pequeño paso de calificar, pero ha entrado en un bache que hoy los tiene con una seguidilla de cinco duelos sin conocer el triunfo (tres derrotas, dos empates) y según sus antecedentes, entrar en una racha así de extensa no suele traer buenas noticias. Son 20 las rachas (de mínimo cinco sin ganar) que Rayados ha tenido en torneos cortos, y sólo en dos ha conseguido estar en la Fiesta Grande: Clausura 2003 y Clausura 2011.
