Theranos AfC[edit]

Hi, thanks for your offer. I noticed there have been additional articles about Theranos and they probably meet most editors' notability standard now. Plus, they are mentioned in the Blood test article. I will add one or two references and create the article sometime this week. Please make changes or additions as required. I'll let you know once I've posted it. Thank you so much for your interest and taking the time to contact me. Claudeb (talk) 15:18, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, the article is now up at Theranos. I added references to the piece that recently appeared in Wired. I'm sure my article can be improved, though. Thanks! Claudeb (talk) 16:18, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
The article has already been tagged for reading like an ad. I tried to tweak it a bit, but I would appreciate any help. Claudeb (talk) 00:31, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Your post at Talk:Lebombo bone[edit]

"a recent re-analysis of the Border Cave baboon fibula (Fig. 7), which identified four sets of non-sequential markings, is taken to suggest ‘accumulation over time and a notational function’ (d’Errico et al. 2012)""Tracing The Emergence Of Palaeoart In Sub-Saharan Africa" Peter B. Beaumont and Robert G. Bednarik. Hopefully I'll find time to fix the article. Dougweller (talk) 10:57, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

James Renner's Blog[edit]

Due to a nasty incident at another article I maintained, I veer clear of "External Links" debates. If someone added back the link to Renner's blog I would not object nor remove it. Jimbonator (talk) 17:04, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

I dread to think what was involved! On reconsideration, Renner's blog is probably too speculative and controversial to be a good EL, considering the sensitivity of the subject matter. Fences&Windows 20:08, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Hello there, a proposal regarding pre-adminship review has been raised at Village pump by Anna Frodesiak. Your comments here is very much appreciated. Many thanks. Jim Carter through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:47, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

No problem, someone found a CC-BY photo on their Flickr to use instead of their logo. Fences&Windows 21:53, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

The Story of Marie and Julien[edit]

Hi, I used some of your contributions in The Story of Marie and Julien in the article on Jacques Rivette. However I just wanted to let you know that some of the links are either dead or require a login to access. I'd recommend going back over the article and checking or fixing the citations. Its a really great article. Also, I'm in the process of gathering notes from Mary Wiles' book on Rivette. Would you be interested in any raw notes on Marie and Julien? I will also eventually take notes from the Morrey/Smith book.--Deoliveirafan (talk) 20:37, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

I'm just going to give you my notes. Some of them may not interest you and are intended for other articles, but I just included everything. Use or delete if you want:


  • Wiles, Mary (2012). Jacques Rivette (Contemporary Film Directors). Champaign, Illinois: University of Illinois Press. ISBN 978-0-252-07834-7. 

Pages: 120

  • Rivette disappeared from set of Marie and Julien after three days of shooting.
  • Marguerite Duras offered to finish film, but the film’s actors refused to continue without Rivette.
  • Mary Wiles: "Rivette’s interest in magic and fantasy as sources of female empowerment resurfaces in recent films from its source in the supernatural feminine cosmology of Les filles de feu and also in the comedy high jinx of Céline and Julie."
  • In 1975 there was only ever a "skeleton script"- written by Claire Denis, Gregorio and Marilù Parolini (Rivette's former wife).
  • Added Madam X character- not in original script.
  • 2003 film lacks the improvisational musical score that tied the first two films together.


  • Opening tracking shot of Julien alone- similar to opening scene in Céline and Julie.


  • Opening dream sequence inspired by the opening dream sequence in Luis Buñuel's Belle de jour.
  • Marie is a revenante, Rivette said she is one of "those persons who for one reason or another did not succeed in crossing – be it the river, path, tree, hill – the frontier that separates our world of the living and the world of the dead, which lies in the direction of Noroît (the northwest), and consequently are condemned to passing certain tests that will allow them to leave this state, which is quite uncomfortable, between two worlds."


  • Montelban- where Estelle returned to- similar sounding to Montfermeil in Gang of Four.
  • Madame X like the goddess of the moon, Marie like the goddess of the sun.


  • Marie in Estelle’s clothes- similar to scene in Vertigo.
  • Marie recites a Gaelic incantation- Rivette said it is the geis, a magical incantation derived from Celtic druidism
  • Jean Markale- historian- wrote about when the role of women is blossoming it corresponds with renaissance of Celtic thought- Courtly period- 12th/13th century


  • Marie covering face to create invisibility mask- from celtic tradition- was in the original script. Rivette and Denis could not remember its meaning, so they reinvented its use in the film.
