Conservation work saves Blackwood Films

first_imgFilm conservators at the Harvard Film Archive (HFA) and Weissman Preservation Center recently completed a massive effort to slow or stop damage to thousands of hours of film – including hundreds of hours of one-of-a-kind out-takes – that capture virtually every important painter, sculptor, musician, film director, architect or choreographer working in the United States during the late 20th century.Part of the Michael Blackwood Collection, the films were presented to the library several years ago, but didn’t begin arriving at the HFA until last year. It quickly became clear, however, that as much as two-thirds of the collection was deteriorating due to age, poor storage conditions, or had suffered damage of one sort or another, and was in danger or being lost forever.“The value of this collection lies in the intimate, backstage perspective it offers on the creative life of some of the most important artistic figures of the 20th century,” said HFA Director Haden Guest. “Understanding the importance of this material, we had staff within hours working to protect the films and ensure they were stored in conditions that would halt any further deterioration.”last_img read more

Hernandez put on disabled list with ribcage injury

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Pederson suffered an AC joint injury two years ago as well while making a diving play in Triple-A. He said the pain and poor range of motion he woke to on Wednesday was “pretty similar.” He went on the DL for two weeks that time.“I can’t really put deodorant on. It’s tough to get dressed — all pretty much as expected,” Pederson said of the day after. “I’m doing treatment and stuff, and the training staff is going to get me right as soon as possible.”Rotation worriesDodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was scheduled to have his back examined by Dr. Robert Watkins onn Wednesday afternoon. Given that Kershaw has not thrown his usual between-starts bullpen, it becomes increasingly unlikely that he will be able to make his next scheduled start on Friday — regardless of the results of Wednesday’s exam.“I think we’re still holding out hope,” Roberts said before Wednesday’s game. “Things can always change. But that’s where we are now.”With Hyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy each scheduled to make at least one more rehab start, Mike Bolsinger now pitching as a reliever and Ross Stripling and Carlos Frias still building up their pitch counts, the Dodgers might have exhausted all of their internal options to replace Kershaw in the rotation Friday if necessary.That has sent the Dodgers’ front office shopping outside the organization. One report has linked them with Erasmo Ramirez, a 26-year-old right-hander currently pitching out of the Tampa Bay Rays’ bullpen. Ramirez won 11 games for the Rays last season and has made 63 starts for the Seattle Mariners and Rays over five seasons. Overall, he is 25-24 with a 4.18 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in the major leagues.“That’s a possibility. I think anything’s possible,” Roberts said of a trade being made to add an option for the rotation. “If something comes to fruition, it does. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. But obviously somebody has to start Friday if it’s not Clayton.”Urias staysThe kid stays in the picture.Circumstances have overtaken the Dodgers’ plan to shut down 19-year-old rookie Julio Urias in mid-season to cap his innings and save him for later in the season. With the Dodgers struggling just to fill out a five-man rotation, Roberts acknowledged that Urias will continue to start for the Dodgers for the time being.“I think that Julio has continued to earn the right to have some starts here,” Roberts said. “With where we’re at with this rotation, he’s given us valuable innings.“I would say the odds of Julio being in the rotation up until the All-Star break are very high.”Urias is 1-2 with a 4.09 ERA in seven starts. He threw a career-high 100 pitches and went six innings for the first time Tuesday to earn his first major-league win. MILWAUKEE >> Joc Pederson hit the wall at Miller Park so hard it injured Kike’ Hernandez’s ribs.A day after Pederson suffered a shoulder injury on his game-saving catch, it wasn’t Pederson but Hernandez who went on the DL to clear a roster spot for right-hander Brock Stewart. Hernandez was placed on the DL with left ribcage inflammation and won’t be eligible to return until after the All-Star break.Hernandez said he “tweaked something” in his left side while making throws from the outfield during some extra defensive work with coach George Lombard during the Dodgers’ most recent homestand. He got treatment but the pain flared up again during the series in Pittsburgh.“I guess I shouldn’t have played those games in Pittsburgh,” Hernandez said. “But when you only play once or twice a week, you don’t really want to say, ‘No.’ ”center_img Hernandez walked three times when he started Monday’s day game and joked that was only because it hurt to swing.He said he had X-rays taken in Milwaukee on Tuesday, which were negative. If there is no improvement before the Dodgers return to Los Angeles this weekend, Hernandez will likely undergo an MRI.“We had to make a move (to add Stewart), so it was either Joc or me,” Hernandez said. “I guess my thing can get worse (by playing). Joc really can’t.”Pederson could still land on the DL depending on how quickly his shoulder recovers. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts acknowledged that as “a possibility.”“It’s going to be a two- or three-day thing and then at that point in time we’ll make a decision,” Roberts said.last_img read more
