Learn about Film Noir with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.If you’re watching a movie where a world-weary detective is having trouble with a ´´dame” or a ´´broad”, and cigarette smoke is wafting through the scene – you’re probably appreciating a bit of ´´Film Noir”. Film Noir literally means black film referring to both the look and the attitude of these movies. Classic Film Noir movies were produced between 1940 and 1958. This film making style emerged in the United States as the Second World War raged and the Great Depression was only recent history. During the Depression Hollywood busily made films that kept audiences happy. For most of the War many Hollywood movies also served as propaganda. Then the soldiers came home and had to adjust back to civilian life. Film Noir was a popular cultural reaction to the desperation of the Depression and the annihilation of the War, coupled with a growing fear of nuclear holocaust during the 1950’s. Film Noir was disillusionment creeping onto the silver screen.

Learn about the Bay of Pigs invasion with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.Bay of Pigs refers to the 1961 invasion of Cuba by a force of CIA-backed Cuban exiles attempting to overthrow Fidel Castro’s left-wing government. In Cuba the invasion is called the Battle of Girón, one of the beaches in the Bay of Pigs, which is on the south coast of Cuba. The invasion was one of the flashpoints of the Cold War and pushed the world towards the brink of nuclear war. Cuba gained independence from Spain in 1898, but in the decades that followed, American businesses gained control of many industries and landholdings. Cuban governments, such as that of Fulgencio Batista, who effectively ruled from 1933 to 1958, were closely allied to the United States. In 1953, a young lawyer, Fidel Castro, rebelled against Batista’s dictatorial regime but was defeated, imprisoned and then exiled. In 1956 Castro returned and launched a guerrilla war.

Learn about Anime with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Super robots to schoolgirls, Astroboy cute to violent realism, Pokemon to pornography. All of these different images, stories and types of entertainment, in cartoon form, can be called Anime. The term Anime covers an enormous range of animation. A specific definition of Anime is difficult as the style is vast, steeped in history and ever evolving. Most often it characterizes all animation of Japanese origin - or of the Japanese style. Anime has a long and varied production history in Japan, but principally entered the Western conscience in the 1980´s. Since then it has grown in popularity and international significance. Today it is a major and influential art form, even called a cultural paradigm, produced and consumed the world over. Interestingly in Japan Anime is a generic term to reference all animation styles and production from around the globe.

Learn about the history of Prohibition with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Imagine not being able to have a beer at the baseball. Or not being allowed to have a wine at the theatre. Imagine it was illegal to offer your guests a drink at your next dinner party. This is what life would be like under prohibition. Prohibition is a law that forbids the manufacturing, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages. Countries all over the world have introduced prohibition at different times in their history and today many countries continue to ban the sale of alcohol. Muslim countries are generally strict about the consumption of alcohol by their citizens and often have some form of prohibition. This is due to references of the danger of alcohol in the Qur’an, which is Islam’s holy book. Scandinavia also has a rich history of prohibition. Most of the Scandinavian countries, with the exception of Denmark, had prohibition during the early 1920s, with a few of them continuing the ban on alcohol well into the following decades. Australia continues to have a form of prohibition in certain remote indigenous communities, but you can drink freely in most of the country.

Learn about the history of the Geisha with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.Mystery and misconception surround the geisha. At first glance, she may appear to be rather average looking, heavily clad in a weighty costume and an excess of make-up. But behind this mask lies a range of artistic skills and social etiquettes of immense importance to Japanese culture past and present. The most common place to find a geisha today is in Kyoto, the former capital of Japan before Tokyo –or Edo- took over. Even so, it is rare to see a real geisha walking the streets there. There are Japanese girls who look like geisha - wearing colorful kimonos with thick obis wrapped tightly around their waist, tottering along on pairs of wooden okobo. But real geisha are more likely to be sleeping late, emerging at night to entertain well-paid and well-paying businessmen, politicians and the like. The word geisha literally means ´´a person of artistic skill”. In Kyoto, the words geiko and maiko are more commonly used. A geiko is a fully qualified geisha, while a maiko is still in training.

Learn about REM sleep with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. REM is an important component of sleep. But sleep itself is a difficult phenomenon to study because it is such an insular process. Dreams in particular are highly elusive for the researcher of sleep. As dreaming is a ´´state of mind´´, theories concerning it are frustratingly convoluted and highly theory-based, with any advancement unlikely to be supported by hard evidence. However, what scientists can do is measure the physical reactions that take place in our bodies and by our bodies when we are sleeping. This helps us understand what happens to us when we sleep and what REM is all about. From close monitoring of sleeping subjects, scientists have been able to discover an arc that we all go through in our unconscious state. Basically, sleep is divided into two cycles: REM and NREM. The former stands for ´´rapid eye movement´´ and the latter stands for ´´non-rapid eye movement´´.

Learn about the process of Immunisation with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. For many people, immunization is their only hope at survival. It is responsible for saving millions of lives every year, eradicating some of the most horrific viruses, and increasing global health awareness. Without immunization, historical plagues such as the ´´Black Death,” ´´Smallpox,” and ´´Spanish Influenza” would still be around. If we didn’t have immunization, many of us wouldn’t be here. Immunization records go as far back as the 10th century, but the modern technique didn’t start until 1721. During this year, an English scientist named Edward Jenner noticed that milk maids who were infected with the cowpox virus were immune to smallpox outbreaks. Jenner swabbed some cowpox puss from a maiden’s arm and injected a small amount of it into an eight year-old boy. Being a relatively harmless virus that is related to smallpox, the cowpox virus soon ran its course. The cowpox injection, known as an ´´inoculation,” made the boy immune to smallpox. His body resisted the deadly disease, even though Jenner injected him with it twice!

Learn the history of the Spanish Inquisition with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The Spanish Inquisition was a governing authority started by the crown in the late-fifteenth century. It included a network of spies who worked across the state to ensure Spaniards conformed to the accepted behavior of traditional Catholic subjects. It was relentless in ensuring Catholic orthodoxy within Spain. But why was Spain so self-conscious in ensuring a singular religious identity? Let´s go back to the year 711. Muslim armies from North Africa successfully conquer much of the Iberian Peninsula, leaving only pockets of resistance in the North. There is Islamic rule in at least part of Spain for the most part of the next eight centuries. But the small areas of resistance are the start of the reconquista meaning ´´reconquest´´.
