It has remained highly influential, often seen as one of the most “remade, reworked, referenced” films in cinema. Director Antoine Fuqua said his approach to the remake was because the same evils in the original are still with us tyranny and terrorism still prevails as it did in “Seven Samurai.”

JoAnne Skelly: Yellow jacket wasps out in force

I may be imagining it, but it seems like a particularly bad yellow jacket year, even though they seemed to arrive later. One area of our yard hums with thousands of them. These aggressive nest defenders aren’t frightened by humans. In fact, swatting one away merely pisses it off. Anyone ever stung by a yellow jacket knows a sting hurts, burns, itches and seems to last a long time. Even worse, one wasp can sting repeatedly. It’s quite an unwelcome and painful surprise to drink from a soda can with a yellow jacket in it. Just a few ruin a good picnic or barbecue in a hurry. For people who are allergic, a sting can be life-threatening.

The right time to pick apples

When are apples, pears or vegetables ripe and ready to pick? Size and color are not always reliable in determining picking time for apples and pears. They develop to the highest quality when picked “mature,” a stage of development prior to “ripe.” Ripe means ready for eating. The “lift and turn” method is a good way to tell if apples or pears are ready to be picked. A mature apple or pear will fall off the tree when held in the palm of the hand, gently lifted, and turned. If you have to pull, tug or yank the fruit, it’s not ready to be picked.
