MINUTE entry before the Honorable Matthew F. Kennelly: The parties have filed a stipulation for dismissal with prejudice. Based on this, plaintiff’s motion to remand #12 is terminated without prejudice. There is, however, a problem with the stipulation for dismissal as worded. It purports to dismiss the case with prejudice but states that “[t]he Court shall retain jurisdiction to enforce the settlement and adjudicate any liens.” The parties are advised that controlling Seventh Circuits authority does not permit a court to retain jurisdiction to enforce a settlement if a case is dismissed with prejudice (retaining jurisdiction to enforce liens is likely a different matter).

WESTLAKE v. HOUSE CORPORATION | FindLaw
Appellate Court of Illinois,First District, Third Division.
Justin WESTLAKE, Plaintiff–Appellant, v. C. HOUSE CORPORATION d/b/a Coach House, Edward Williams and Corey Kelley, Defendants–Appellees.
Decided: June 15, 2011Moskovic & Associates, Ltd. , Arlington Heights (Joanne Moskovic, of counsel), for Appellant. Law Office of Michael W. Pinsof, P.C., Chicago (Michael W. Pinsof, of counsel), for Appellees.
¶ 1 Plaintiff, Justin Westlake, appeals from an order of the circuit court entering judgment for defendants, C House Corporation (d/b/a Coach House), Edward Williams and Corey Kelley, on three counts of plaintiff’s third amended complaint alleging battery, willful and wanton conduct, and negligence against defendants. For the reasons set forth below, we affirm the circuit court.
¶ 2 Plaintiff’s complaint arose out of an altercation that occurred in the early morning hours of April 25, 2007, outside of the Coach House, a restaurant and bar in Roselle, Illinois. On that date, plaintiff was at the Coach House with some friends and became involved in a verbal and physical altercation with other bar patrons and then punched defendant Edward Williams, a Coach House employee. According to plaintiff, after he hit Williams, another Coach House employee, defendant Corey Kelley, followed him to a parking lot across the street from the bar and beat him up. As a result of the altercation, plaintiff suffered several injuries to his face and his abdomen and was taken to the hospital, where he received stitches to his lip and above his eye. Plaintiff’s third amended complaint, filed on January 5, 2010, alleged civil battery, two counts of negligence and two counts of willful and wanton conduct against the Coach House (counts I, VI, and VII, VIII, IX), civil battery and willful and wanton conduct against Edward Williams (counts II and III), and civil battery and willful and wanton conduct against Corey Kelley (count IV and V). Plaintiff sought money damages in the amount of $21,146, for the medical bills he incurred, as well as punitive damages.
¶ 3 Defendants filed an answer denying plaintiff’s allegations and asserting the affirmative defenses of provocation, self-defense, and reasonable force. In addition, defendant Williams filed a counterclaim, alleging that plaintiff attacked him and seeking damages for the injuries he suffered and the medical bills he incurred. Prior to trial, plaintiff filed a motion to strike defendants’ affirmative defense of provocation, which the trial court granted, and a motion to exclude evidence of plaintiff’s intoxication, which the trial court denied.
¶ 4 On June 1, 2010, the parties filed an agreed statement of facts pursuant to Illinois Supreme Court Rule 323(d) (Ill. S.Ct. R. 323 (eff. Sept. 23, 1996)) in lieu of the record of proceedings. The parties stipulated that a three-day bench trial was held from January 5, 2010 through January 7, 2010. At trial, plaintiff testified that he went to the Coach House on the evening of April 25, 2007 with several friends, including Kari Pace. Plaintiff drank between 5 and 10 beers and some time in the early morning hours just before the bar closed, he got into a verbal dispute with other bar patrons outside the Coach House. During this altercation, a female patron attempted to hit plaintiff and plaintiff, in turn, hit a male patron who was with her. Following this exchange, plaintiff hit defendant Edward Williams. Plaintiff and his friends then left the property and headed across the street to an empty parking lot where plaintiff’s car was parked. Plaintiff testified that he was in the parking lot, being chased by several people, when he was attacked by someone he could not identify and was punched, thrown to the ground, and kicked in the head and body.
¶ 5 Kari Pace testified that she was at the Coach House with plaintiff on the evening of April 25, 2007, and was outside the bar during the altercation between plaintiff, the other bar patrons, and defendant Williams. She testified that after plaintiff hit Williams, she, plaintiff and another friend left and walked across the street to where plaintiff’s car was parked. As they crossed the street, Pace said she heard footsteps and people running behind her. When she turned around, she saw Corey Kelley and a couple of other men wearing black clothes with a “Coach House” logo running toward them. She then saw Kelley hitting, kicking, and punching plaintiff, who was lying facedown on the ground trying to cover himself, and saw the other men in Coach House clothing fighting with other people in the parking lot.
¶ 6 Jason Jones testified that he was at the Coach House on May 29, 2005, when he became engaged in a verbal dispute with Michael Fritkin, a Coach House bouncer. Jones testified that Fritkin put him in a headlock and took him to the ground, breaking his nose. Jones also stated that after this altercation with Fritkin, he left the property and was standing on the sidewalk near Roselle Road when he was approached by Corey Kelley and another bouncer from the Coach House and was punched, knocked to the ground, punched again, and kicked.
¶ 7 Defendant Edward Williams was called as an adverse witness and testified that on April 25, 2007, he was working as a bouncer at the Coach House and that in the early morning hours, he saw plaintiff with his hands around a woman’s throat. Williams broke up the altercation, and shortly thereafter, plaintiff hit him in the face with what Williams believed to be a glass bottle. Williams said that defendant then left the property and headed toward Roselle Road. Corey Kelley then approached Williams, who motioned toward Roselle Road. Williams then saw Kelley running in that direction until he lost sight of him. Williams testified that he did not tell Kelley that defendant hit him, did not cross Roselle Road, did not hit defendant, and was not involved in the incident in the parking lot. He also testified that he and Kelley were the only security personnel on duty that evening wearing black shirts with a “Coach House” logo.
¶ 8 Corey Kelley was also called as an adverse witness and testified that he was employed as a bouncer at the Coach House on the evening of the alleged incident and that around closing time, he was involved in a verbal altercation with plaintiff, his friends, and other Coach House patrons. Kelley said that during or after that verbal altercation, he encountered Edward Williams and saw that Williams had an injury to his face. He testified that he asked Williams what happened and Williams motioned toward Roselle Road, but did not tell him that plaintiff had hit him. Kelley stated that he ran toward Roselle Road and that when he arrived in the parking lot across the street, he saw seven or eight people running around and fighting. He testified that he never hit plaintiff, that when he ran across Roselle Road he did not know that plaintiff had hit Williams, and that Williams never went across Roselle Road to the location of the altercation. Kelley testified that he saw plaintiff in the back of a police car and said that plaintiff was agitated and shouting. He also stated that he and Williams were the only security personnel on duty that evening wearing black “Coach House” security shirts.
¶ 9 Demetrios Mastos testified as an adverse witness that he owns the Coach House, that Williams and Kelley were employed as bouncers on the evening of the alleged incident and that they were wearing black “Coach House” security shirts. Mastos said he did not see the verbal or physical exchange between plaintiff, his friends, other patrons, and Williams. After the alleged incident, he spoke with the police and viewed security videos taken during the alleged incident.
¶ 10 Dr. Subhashish Agarwal testified by deposition that he was the emergency room doctor at Alexian Brothers Medical Center, where plaintiff was brought by ambulance following the altercation at the Coach House. Dr. Agarwal stated that he examined and treated plaintiff’s wounds and lacerations by placing stitches above his left eye and his lip. He also ordered X-rays and CAT scans of plaintiff’s head, C-spine, abdomen, pelvis, and chest and gave plaintiff several medications, including antibiotics and painkillers. Later, plaintiff was released from the emergency room. Dr. Agarwal testified that plaintiff was seen by another emergency room physician on May 3, 2007, for suture removal and rib pain, and that another chest X-ray was administered that day.
¶ 11 Testimony was elicited from one of the parties that Frank McCluskey, a bouncer at the Coach House, lay on top of plaintiff to protect him from being punched. However, defendants, Kelley, Williams, and Mastos testified that McCluskey was not on duty that evening.
¶ 12 The trial court granted plaintiff’s request to admit the following exhibits into evidence: (1) a DVD of security video taken at the Coach House on the evening of the incident; (2) seven photographs of the Coach House, Roselle Road, and the parking lot where the incident occurred; (3) six photographs of plaintiff after the altercation; (4) plaintiff’s medical bills; and (5) the evidence deposition of Dr. Agarwal. All exhibits were admitted pursuant to stipulation except for the photographs of plaintiff, which were admitted over defendants’ objection. The security video that was admitted into evidence shows plaintiff hitting a male patron and then leaving with Kari Pace and heading toward the parking lot. Plaintiff is then seen walking back toward the building and hitting Edward Williams. Kelley then has an interaction with Williams, who points toward Roselle Road, and Kelley is seen sprinting in that direction and is followed shortly thereafter by approximately eight other men. The videotape does not show the altercation in the parking lot.
¶ 13 After the close of plaintiff’s case, defendants moved for a directed finding as to counts II and III of plaintiff’s complaint against Edward Williams and counts VI, VII, VIII and IX against the Coach House. The court granted the motion as to counts II and III but denied it as to the remaining counts. The court also granted plaintiff’s motion for a directed finding on defendants’ affirmative defenses of self-defense and reasonable force.
¶ 14 Defendants called Kelley, Mastos and Williams as witnesses, who offered the same testimony as they did when called as witnesses in plaintiff’s case. However, Williams also testified that he suffered injuries as a result of plaintiff hitting him, that he sought medical treatment, and that he incurred $828 in medical bills, which were admitted into evidence over plaintiff’s objection.
¶ 15 On January 26, 2010, the trial court issued a judgment in favor of defendants, finding that plaintiff failed to show that it is more likely than not that the battery was perpetrated by defendants. The court also ruled in defendant Williams’ favor on his counterclaim against plaintiff, finding that the videotape clearly showed that plaintiff hit Williams and, therefore, Williams sustained his burden of proof as to the elements of his cause of action. As to damages, the court relied on the paid medical bill submitted by Williams in the amount of $828 and entered judgment in Williams’ favor in that amount. On February 25, 2010, plaintiff filed a notice of appeal seeking a reversal of the judgment in favor of defendants and a reversal of the judgment in favor of Williams’ counterclaim.
¶ 16 On appeal, plaintiff first argues that the trial court erred in admitting Williams’ medical bills into evidence because there was no testimony from a competent medical professional that the treatment was necessarily incurred as a result of plaintiff’s actions. Relying on Arthur v. Catour, 216 Ill.2d 72, 295 Ill.Dec. 641, 833 N.E.2d 847 (2005), plaintiff argues that in order to recover for medical expenses, a party must prove that he has paid or become liable to pay a medical bill, that he necessarily incurred the medical expenses because of injuries resulting from the defendant’s negligence, and that the charges were reasonable for services of that nature. Arthur, 216 Ill.2d at 81–82, 295 Ill.Dec. 641, 833 N.E.2d 847. In Arthur, our supreme court stated that payment of a medical bill is prima facie evidence of the bill’s reasonableness based on the premise that “a consumer will not willingly pay an unreasonable or unusual charge for a service.” (Internal quotation marks omitted.) Arthur, 216 Ill.2d at 82, 295 Ill.Dec. 641, 833 N.E.2d 847. However, the court stated, “[t]he proponent must also present evidence that the charges were necessarily incurred because of injuries caused by the defendant’s negligence. [Citation.] Only then have the evidentiary requirements for admission into evidence been satisfied.” (Internal quotation marks omitted.) Arthur, 216 Ill.2d at 82–83, 295 Ill.Dec. 641, 833 N.E.2d 847.
¶ 17 Plaintiff contends that, here, defendant Williams failed to present testimony from a medical professional attesting to the medical necessity of Williams’ treatment, and therefore, the trial court should not have admitted the bill. Further, plaintiff contends that the medical bills were not itemized to explain the charges or the services rendered and, in one instance, one document was not even a bill but was simply a letter showing the balance due. Plaintiff asserts that he was prejudiced by the trial court’s evidentiary decision because it resulted in an award of $828 in Williams’ favor.
¶ 18 Defendant Williams argues that there was sufficient testimony in the record to permit the trial court to infer that the injuries inflicted upon him by plaintiff directly, proximately, and necessarily caused him to seek emergency room treatment immediately after the incident. Defendant asserts that proximate cause can be established by either direct evidence or inferentially by circumstantial evidence. Stojkovich v. Monadnock Building, 281 Ill.App.3d 733, 739, 217 Ill.Dec. 35, 666 N.E.2d 704 (1996). “When circumstantial evidence is relied upon, that evidence must support an inference which is reasonable and probable, not merely possible. ” Stojkovich, 281 Ill.App.3d at 739, 217 Ill.Dec. 35, 666 N.E.2d 704. “ ‘If as a matter of ordinary experience a particular act or omission might be expected, under the circumstances, to produce a particular result, and that result in fact has followed, the conclusion may be permissible that the causal relation exists.’ ” Stojkovich, 281 Ill.App.3d at 740, 217 Ill.Dec. 35, 666 N.E.2d 704 (quoting W. Page Keeton et al. eds., Prosser and Keeton on Torts § 41 at 270 (5th ed.1984)). Defendant Williams contends that here, the trial court logically inferred from the evidence, which showed that he was hit in the face by plaintiff, that emergency room treatment was necessarily incurred. We agree.
¶ 19 We review a trial court’s decision regarding the admissibility of evidence for abuse of discretion. Aguirre v. City of Chicago, 382 Ill.App.3d 89, 98, 320 Ill.Dec. 512, 887 N.E.2d 656 (2008). An abuse of discretion occurs only when no reasonable person would rule as the trial court did. Aguirre, 382 Ill.App.3d at 98, 320 Ill.Dec. 512, 887 N.E.2d 656. Here, the trial court found that videotape evidence presented at trial clearly showed that plaintiff hit Williams, a finding that plaintiff does not dispute. This is sufficient for the court to infer that plaintiff caused defendant’s injuries, that those injuries probably required medical attention, and that the medical bills Williams incurred probably resulted from plaintiff’s conduct. Plaintiff does not contest the reasonableness of these charges. Therefore, we find that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in admitting Williams’ medical bills into evidence.
¶ 20 Next, plaintiff argues that the trial court’s judgment in favor of defendants on count I (battery against C House Corporation) and counts IV and V (battery and willful and wanton conduct against Corey Kelley) were against the manifest weight of the evidence. In particular, plaintiff contends that the security video, which was viewed by the trial court, along with the trial testimony of all of the witnesses, particularly that of Kari Pace, who identified Kelley as the man who beat up plaintiff, makes it more likely than not that Kelley spoke with Williams, learned that plaintiff had hit Williams, and then followed plaintiff and beat him up in retaliation. Therefore, plaintiff asks this court to reverse the trial court’s ruling in favor of defendants and remand the case to the trial court for a determination of plaintiff’s damages.
¶ 21 A trial court’s decision following a bench trial is reviewed to determine if the judgment is against the manifest weight of the evidence. Gambino v. Boulevard Mortgage Corp., 398 Ill.App.3d 21, 51, 337 Ill.Dec. 257, 922 N.E.2d 380 (2009). A judgment is not against the manifest weight of the evidence unless the opposite conclusion is clearly evident. Gambino, 398 Ill.App.3d at 51, 337 Ill.Dec. 257, 922 N.E.2d 380. “Where there are different ways to view the evidence, or alternative inferences to be drawn from it, we accept the view of the trier of fact as long as it is reasonable.” People ex rel. Illinois Historic Preservation Agency v. Zych, 186 Ill.2d 267, 278, 238 Ill.Dec. 23, 710 N.E.2d 820 (1999).
¶ 22 In this case, there was directly conflicting testimony, with Kari Pace testifying that she saw Kelley hit, kick, and punch plaintiff and Kelley testifying that he did not hit plaintiff. A trial court is in a superior position to observe witnesses while testifying, to judge their credibility, and to determine the weight of their testimony. Southwest Bank of St. Louis v. Poulokefalos, 401 Ill.App.3d 884, 891, 341 Ill.Dec. 677, 931 N.E.2d 285 (2010). Moreover, resolving conflicts relating to the credibility of witnesses and the weight to be afforded their testimony is the province of the trial court. 1350 Lake Shore Associates v. Casalino, 352 Ill.App.3d 1027, 1040, 287 Ill.Dec. 708, 816 N.E.2d 675 (2004). Accordingly, a trial court’s findings of fact are entitled to great deference by this court. Southwest Bank of St. Louis, 401 Ill.App.3d at 891, 341 Ill.Dec. 677, 931 N.E.2d 285. Here, the trial court heard the conflicting testimony from Pace and Kelley and resolved conflicts in favor of defendants. This conclusion is not against the manifest weight of the evidence.
¶ 23 The other evidence presented at trial was a videotape of the events leading up to the incident in the parking lot. Plaintiff asserts that although the videotape did not show what occurred in that parking lot, the events depicted in it make it more likely than not that Williams told Kelley that plaintiff hit him and that Kelley went to the parking lot and beat up plaintiff in retaliation. However, where there are alternative inferences to be drawn from evidence, we accept the view of the trier of fact as long as it is reasonable. Zych, 186 Ill.2d at 278, 238 Ill.Dec. 23, 710 N.E.2d 820. Here, it would not be unreasonable for the trial court to reach an alternative conclusion based on the evidence presented, such as that someone else who was in the parking lot hit plaintiff. Therefore, the trial court’s finding that plaintiff failed to show that it is more likely than not that the battery was perpetrated by defendants was not against the manifest weight of the evidence.
¶ 24 For the foregoing reasons, we affirm the circuit court.
¶ 25 Affirmed.
Presiding Justice QUINN delivered the judgment of the court, with opinion.
Justices NEVILLE and MURPHY concurred in the judgment and opinion.

My column on OU’s website, Shabbat Shalom includes recipes for My Chicken Marbella from “Cooking Jewish,” Orange Beets with Almonds from “The Healthy Jewish Cookbook by Michael van Straten and Apricot Jelly Roll from Joan Kekst’s “Passover Cookery”
Passover is the most observed Jewish holiday of the year. Even those who never step inside a synagogue pull out all the stops for this one. With our celebratory meal, the Seder, we retell the 3500-year-old story of our ancestors’ flight to freedom from the land of Egypt. And everything on the table is laden with meaning.
The centerpiece is the Seder plate, holding the traditional symbols. On every Seder plate sits karpas (a green vegetable), the symbol of spring, which we dip into salt water as we remember the tears shed by our ancestors. Actually for Jews in the shtetls (little villages) in Eastern Europe, spring arrived late, and greens were rare at Passover time. “My father’s family always used potato,” suggested my friend Yiddish songstress Lori Cahan-Simon, “but added parsley as karpas in the new country, so we have, in effect, parsley potatoes!” Read the whole story.
The festival of Passover, which begins this year at sundown on Wednesday, commemorates the exodus of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt. Because in their haste to depart they could not wait for their bread to rise, the dough was baked in flat cakes. To commemorate our passage to freedom, Jews throughout the world eat matzo for the eight-day holiday (seven in Israel). Strict rabbinical rules govern every aspect of its production.
“Our process with our Passover matzoh,” explained David Rossi, vice-president of marketing for RAB Food Group, owners of the Manischewitz brand, “from the time water touches the flour and gets mixed, then sheeted, made thinner and thinner, to the end of baking in the oven – can be no longer than 18 minutes. If there is a mechanical failure or some issue or error where the matzoh did not get through that run in 18 minutes, then the whole run must be thrown away. ”
Before the company can begin production for Passover, the entire facility must be thoroughly cleaned and inspected – a procedure that makes Mama Hinda’s routine seem like a light dusting.
“The process takes four to seven weeks,” Rossi noted. “All the belts, all the lines, all the motors, all the ovens are cleaned and kashered (made kosher) to meet strict rabbinical standards for Passover.”
Turning out hundreds of Passover items, in addition to 10 varieties of matzo – spelt is Manischewitz’s new flavor this year – is no overnighter. “We begin making Passover products in September until early March for the following year,” Rossi noted. “Because the plant is kashered at tremendous expense, we produce Passover products until we’ve run all the requirements for the year. Then in March we start making non-Passover products.”

I’m scared. I’ve been toying with the idea of making all new dishes for Thanksgiving this year, but I keep hearing that old mantra in my head: “You don’t mess with Thanksgiving!” Why fix something that’s not broken?
Former long-time Fullerton resident, Linda Gomberg, seconds the notion. The five Gomberg children and their four spouses, plus 12 grandchildren, will gather in the Gomberg home, as they do every year, to enjoy a menu that seldom varies.
“One time I switched out and bought a different kind of squash for my apple stuffed squash, and they went crazy,” she recalled. “I have so many people, and they all know what to expect.”
Daughter-in-law Glenda will bring the mashed potatoes. Daughter-in-law Carolyn will make her fat-free, sugar-free pumpkin pie. Linda will serve two kinds of stuffing with homemade croutons.
“I stuff the bird with giblet stuffing and make an extra vegetable stuffing with no drippings for my vegetarian granddaughter,” she added.
“(Husband) Ray likes candied sweet potatoes, and I love turkey, especially the wings. I buy extra wings and legs and have been making it the same way for forty years.” Green beans with almonds rounds out the menu.
“We’ve got one diabetic, one fat-watcher, various weight-conscious people and a vegetarian,” Linda noted.
The weight-conscious will need all their will power to resist the desserts: “I’ll make a chocolate fudge pie, pecan pie, key lime pie, and I always do a chocolate chip bundt cake. I buy a sugar-free apple or cherry pie.”
But Thanksgiving dinner is just the beginning of the Gomberg celebration. On Friday the whole gang (all 23 of them) will take off for Desert Springs, leftovers in coolers, as they have been doing for years, for a weekend of family fun. Full story with recipe

Okay I lied. I did make one new dish and it is in the freezer as we speak. I didn’t add the pistachios – I will do that last minute.
The original recipe was from Julie Sahni, but I combined it with a bunch of things I saw in other recipes. Julie called for a whole teaspoon of cayenne. I used 1/4 teaspoon and it still has quite a kick, so I’m suggesting you start with 1/8. I added the lemon juice, honey, pomegranate molasses, preserves and cumin and substituted apricots for the raisins. Sahni has you cook the pistachios in the chutney but I like the crunch of adding them last minute. Also, it was my idea to saute the shallots first. That little bit of margarine gives a nice flavor. Anyway, I thought it was delicious!
Here’s the recipe:

Thanksgiving is around the corner, and even those who count the can opener as their favorite (and only) kitchen tool are planning to pull out all the stops for this feeding frenzy of a holiday. Decisions, decisions, decisions. Fresh turkey or frozen. Free range or…not. To brine or not to brine. And that’s just the main dish. Come to the side of the plate, and the real confusion begins. What on earth is the difference between sweet potatoes and yams? Well, when it comes to potatoes I know whom to turn to.
Distinguished cookbook editor Roy Finamore, with Fine Cooking magazine’s Molly Stevens, offers 300 exciting, spud-studded recipes from appetizers, soups and salads through main courses, breads and even desserts in One Potato, Two Potato (Houghton Mifflin), an encyclopedic, lavishly photographed guide to everything you ever wanted to know about this humble vegetable.
Sweet potatoes, botanically unrelated to the potato, but included in the book nonetheless, are often mislabeled as “yams,” Finamore explains. The true yam is more like the potato and not nearly as sweet as the sweet potato. Its texture upon cooking is also more like that of the potato, rather than the custardy texture of the sweet potato. Chances are your candied “yams” are really candied sweet potatoes.
“It’s an American thing, this confusion,” writes Finamore, who credits vegetable authority Elizabeth Schneider for tracing the mix-up to the African slaves, who began calling the American sweet potato “yams” because of their resemblance to the yams they remembered back home. “But the resemblance ends there,” continues Finamore. “Yams and sweet potatoes come from different families and have different flavors and different uses.” Full story with recipe

AICC, Wasatch Container Partner On Second Virtual Plant Tour BY REBECCA RENDON Jerry Frisch, President of Wasatch Container, recently led AICC mem- bers on a virtual plant tour of his 35,000-square-foot box plant, along with his crate and foam divisions, all located in within a few miles of each other in Salt Lake City, Utah. The event was the second of the AICC-sponsored Virtual Plant Tour Series.
NAM’s Timmons: This Is A New Day For America
Prior to President-elect Joe Biden being sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons re- leased the following statement: “This is a new day for America. This new administration brings a new commitment to healing our country—healing from the dead- ly pandemic that has claimed the lives of 400,000 of our fellow Americans and heal- ing from the deep divisions that have torn us apart. President-elect Biden has made it his mission to unify our nation. It was the defining purpose of his campaign—to ‘restore the soul of America.’ Today, manufacturers recom- mit ourselves to be part of the solution—to be part of the healing process. We invite all Americans to join us in doing the same. “Joe Biden’s life has been defined by ser- vice to his country and devotion to his family. We all know the devastating loss he endured when his wife and daughter were killed just before he took office as a senator and later with the death of his son Beau. Today, as he takes office as our president, our American family is mourning devastating loss, and each
Wasatch Container prides itself on being a diverse packaging company, specializing in custom corrugated packaging, stock boxes, foam and crates. The diversification and success of the company has evolved over time since the plant was built. Frisch began the tour explaining that he got his start in packaging when he graduated with his degree in Packaging Engineering and then went to work for a folding carton plant in Utah. He left the folding car- ton plant and decided to start Wasatch Container, a greenfield facility, in 1995. A few years after the plant was built, Wasatch acquired a foam fabri- cation company, which complemented its existing corrugated business well. Several years later, a customer approached Frisch about getting into the wood crate business, which seemed like a good fit consider- ing the crossover between foam and crates. Frisch then purchased a 67,000-square-foot facility nearby to house the foam and crate divi- sions. In 2019, Wasatch acquired a local stock box company, Box Es- sentials, which is managed offsite by Lauren Frisch.

day, more of us lose loved ones. It is reassuring to have in the Oval Office a man who has known and overcome great sorrow, a man of strong character and a devoted husband, father and grandfather—because he knows, perhaps bet- ter than most, what all who are hurting need in order to heal. “Our new vice president will also send a powerful mes- sage today to the world and to future generations. As a woman of color rising to the second-highest office in the land, Kamala Harris will make history, in multiple ways, helping more Americans see a future for themselves in public service and elected office. We remain hopeful that her service as vice president helps us achieve the more inclusive country that manufacturers work to build every day. “Throughout our history, manufacturers have seen America through difficult days. In World War II, we were the Arsenal of Democracy. Throughout this pandemic, we have supplied the goods needed to sustain life. And in these days ahead, our industry will continue to be there for the American people. We will defend our democracy, and we will defeat COVID-19. We know from our history that, even when it seems improbable, brighter days will come. And this new day reminds us of what is still possible in the United States of America.” Visit nam.org .

40 ft of paper travel from preheater to hot plates 3 seconds of heat, glue and bonding 1 chance to get it right! the ZONE
Design & Production
Chicago Electric offers 10 technology solutions to control ‘the Zone’ CORRUGATOR Sectoral preheating plate
Our sectoral preheating plates provide direct heat by means of a double steam circuit, allowing for efficient heating in hard-to-access locations, as well as to act as a steam shower to open the paper’s fibre, making it receptive to absorbing the heat and the glue.
This translates into increased speed and improved quality of the cardboard sheet finish.
The system’s main advantages are as follows:
• The plate may only be used to heat, only to humidify, or both options at the same time. • The plate is sectored, which allows for applying humidity to the sections. • It provides temperature in previously inaccessible locations and near the location needed. • It compensates the loss of temperature dissipated due to distance, speed or limitations of the exiting preheaters. • Quick transferring of heat to the paper. • The combination of the hot plate and steam shower allows for providing heat even to the hardest papers to heat. • Does not dry out the paper. • Possibility of operating as a humidifier and pre-conditioner. • Maintains and improves the fibre’s elasticity. • Acts according to the operator’s needs. • Facilitates the paper’s hygroscopy to absorb the glue and improve rubberising.

calibrations and settings. Bar systems avoid this, but compensate this with the risk of exces- sive glue application. The system contains many wearing parts. Solution The contact roll combines the ad antage of both systems and ensures minimum contact between board and applicator roll. The system uses small pneumatic cylinders in order to achieve a “soft touch.”
6. Gap Control 7. Curved Plate 8. Roller Shoe Press When it comes to a short-term increas of web tension, spring loaded systems with shoes or airpressure activated system have problems in compensating these. The system is lifted for a short time. This may result in de-lamination and in the ‘double kiss’ effect. Solution For a defined and exact bonding point of the web fiv weight rollers will be installed usually over the first flat hotplate of the heating section. The rolls are mounted into a frame, which is actuated by means of two pneumatic cylinders. P oductivity Issu —Double Kiss Bonding
9. Thin Wall Hot Plates 10. Pressure System Benefits —Exact glue application due to defined contact of applicator roll to web. Web is in contact to less flute tips compared to bar systems. • High precision glue application • Less moisture applied to web —No wear of shoes and springs —No adjustment of shoes or paper gap —Uniform glue application over entire working width for all flutes by use of pneumatic cylinders instead of springs — Less contamination by paper dust and glue remains —No jam of board because of web breaks caused by splice joints going through 630-784-0800 Benefits —Rollers secure exact defined first point of contact of liner and single-faced board – No double kiss —Frame design avoids unintended lifting of roller shoe (compared to spring or air loaded systems) – No double kiss —Pressure can be increased or released for special grades or products 490 Tower Blvd. , Carol Stream, IL Contact Chicago Electric to GET IT RIGHT 630-784-0800 [email protected] chicagoelectric.com Solution The ProPress system ensures an optimum heat transfer to the board. It offers a wide range of set- tings. The loadi g pressure can be varied, the number of shoes can be lifted in accordance t the line speed. The outer shoes can be lifted in accordance to the paper width. The shoe bars will be delivered pre-assembled for a short installation time. —Liftable for easy paper infeed and for cleaning of the machine —Position adjustable in paper direction to avoid grooves in hotplate Press Productivity Issue—Poor Heat Transfer Rollers are usually limiting the heat transfer, since they often have contact mainly on the edges of the plates due to wear or bent plates. They also cause often loss of caliper and bearing need to be replaced frequently. Airpressure actuated systems can only supply a limited pressure and have com- pared to shoe systems a closed surface.

Two Sides Fact Sheet Corrects Environmental Misconceptions
• Between 2007 and 2017, the forest sector reduced en- ergy use by 24 percent and total fossil GHG emissions by 40 percent. – Natural Resources Canada, 2020 • Canada recycles almost 70 percent of its paper and cardboard, making it among the top paper recycling countries in the world. – Forest Products Association of Canada, 2020 AF&PA Releases December 2020 Containerboard Monthly Report AF&PA has released its December 2020 Containerboard Monthly report. • Total Containerboard production in December in- creased three percent compared to December 2019. It was up four percent when compared to the same 12 months of 2019. • December 2020 production of containerboard for export decreased 22 percent compared to the same month last year; it was up nine percent year-to-date. • The containerboard operating rate was 93.7 percent, essentially flat (-0.1 pts.) from December 2019 and up 2.3 points year-to-date. • Mill inventories of containerboard at the end of De- cember increased 3,000 short tons from the previous month and were up 3,000 short tons compared to De- cember 2019.
The Canadian Paper and Paper-based Packaging industry is among the most sustainable industries in the world, but there are still significant gaps between public perceptions and fact when it comes to related environmental topics such as forestry, greenhouse gas emissions and recycling. A recent survey by Two Sides, an initiative that promotes sustainable and responsible paper production, found that Canadian consumers rank pulp and paper products as a leading cause of deforestation – which they are not. In a recently released fact sheet, Two Sides provides facts from credible sources that set the record straight: • Deforestation is defined as the conversion of forest to other land uses whether human-induced or not. The definition specifically excludes areas where trees have been removed as a result of harvesting or logging and where the forest is expected to regenerate naturally or with the aid of sustainable forest management mea- sures. – UN Food and Agriculture Organization, 2020 • At the end of 2019, Canada had over 168 million hect- ares of independently certified forest land (to either CSA, SFI or FSC). Nearly half of Canada’s forests are certified and 37 percent of all certified forests world- wide are in Canada, the largest area of any country. – Natural Resources Canada, 2020

The Leadership Mirror: AICC Hybrid Event To Sharpen Leadership Skills AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, is allowing current and future leaders to understand their strengths and areas of improvement with “The Leadership Mirror.” Over three online sessions, on February 5, 12 and 19, par- ticipants will gain a clear view of their current skills and any potential gaps in communication, decision-making, and managing change. Truly effective leaders never stop learning. Just as there is always something new to learn about technology and the changing business climate, exceptional leaders sharp- en their skills in communication, negotiation, conflict man- agement, and dealing with change. The Leadership Mirror provides data, expertise, and coaching to improve every leader’s effectiveness. This course will provide feedback and a development plan for technically skilled contributors whose advancement is limited by a lack of relational skills. Online workshop sessions include “Understanding Your Work Style and Your Effect on Others,” “How Do You Compare to More Than 5000 Healthy and Productive Leaders?,” “Understanding Your Value to the Team,” as well as “Each Team Member’s Contribution To Higher Pro- ductivity,” and much more. This course will help participants chart the right path for them to become the leader they want to be. AICC member
registration is $795 for a single registration and $695 per person for three or more employees. This hybrid event, includes pre-work, homework during the three weeks, and individualized coaching after the event. Participants will take three leadership assessments (which taken separately would cost $3,000), receive peer feedback, and create an action plan as part of this event. Scott Ellis, Principal, Working Well, LLC, and Leah Ash- ford, Founder, Ashford Coaching, will lead this event. Ellis has served as a resource for the development of individu- als, teams, and organizations as a consultant, teacher, psy- chotherapist, coach, and general manager. He is a leader- ship and process improvement specialist who serves on AICC’s faculty to assist in building the Packaging School curriculum. Leah Ashford is the founder of Ashford Coaching, an organization dedicated to increasing the skill develop- ment and productivity of individuals and teams.

Signode Introduces SIG-VCS TANDEM Automatic Squaring Bundler System
Glenview, Illinois based Signode has introduced its latest innovation for the corrugated industry, the SIG-VCS TANDEM Automatic Bundler Sys- tem. This novel system combines the power of two squaring bundlers connected with dual zone conveyors to meet the extreme demands of modern flexo folder gluers with inline bundle breakers and operating at speeds up to 36 bundles per minute.
Cosmo DeNicola Chairman, Amtech Software
Packaging ERP Algorithmic Scheduling Web-Based Access Online Customer Portals
Integrated and independent box manufacturers are looking for high speed bundling or in-line redundancy feature–the system is fitted with dual coils and auto strap change and can be automatically taught a new bundle recipe in seconds. It also has bundle diversion technology that sends all bundles to the active bundler during a coil change or while the other temporarily inactive bundler “fixes itself” with the auto refeed feature. Once the inactive bundler changes the coil or the successful refeed corrects the rare misfeed, the inactive bundler will come back online automatically and share the workload with the active bundler. Signode has strived to manufacture a bundling system that is simple to operate and maintain. The icon-drive HMI allows operators to quickly set up a new recipe with a few taps of the screen. Other enhancements to the software include maintenance troubleshooting tools such as a tracing feature, simple strapping system checks, an event list and many more. Signode’s new chute technology improves on the previous gener- ation of UHMW chutes by using a segmented chute where the chute gates are covered by a lifetime warranty. Changing a worn chute after several million cycles was one of customers’ biggest headaches. Now they can change a single segmented gate in 20 minutes. This ease of maintenance helps lower replacement parts cost while reducing service labor costs to a minimum. “We have been listening to our customers who are eager for a bun- dling system that maximizes high speed bundling capabilities and mini- mizes production interruptions,” says Mike Stein, Vice President of Mar- keting & Product Management for Signode’s Automation & Packaging Technologies group. “The SIG-VCS TANDEM achieves these goals and provides box plant operations with great performance, simple mainte- nance and increased uptime for corrugated bundling.”

FSEA Opens 28th Annual Gold Leaf Awards Competition
The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) has opened the 28th Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition. FSEA invites companies in the finishing, printing, folding carton, greeting card and binding industries to submit their best work. “The FSEA Gold Leaf Awards are the industry standard for the best of the best in print enhancements,” said FSEA Executive Director Jeff Peterson. “From attention-getting foil and coatings to intricate diecuts, unique folds and de- tailed embossing, members of the print finishing industry are enhancing greeting cards, presentation folders, labels, invitations, folding cartons, packaging boxes and more.” The FSEA Gold Leaf Awards program has grown as entries are submitted from around the world by finishers and binders that want to compete against the best in the industry. New technologies have fueled growth, too, with expanded award categories in areas such as digital foil and other specialty UV coatings. Entries will be judged on design, execution and level of difficulty in more than 25 categories, with a gold, silver and bronze award presented in each category. A “Best of Show” award will be selected from among all of the Gold Award winners. All winning companies will be announced during an on- line presentation ceremony during the FSEA Online Learn- ing Experience, to be held in Spring 2021. In addition, win- ners will be honored during the FSEA Finishing Summit, October 2021. Competition winners also will be highlight- ed in promotional campaigns, PostPress magazine and other trade publications, and on the FSEA website. To submit entries or for complete information on rules, regulations and entry fees, download an entry form from the FSEA website at www.fsea.com . For questions, call the FSEA at (785) 271-5816. Entry deadline is March 8, 2021. Domtar Names Wilson Manager Of TN Mill Fort Mill, South Carolina based Domtar Corp. reported that it has named Troy Wilson the new manager of its King- sport, Tennessee, mill, effective immediately. Wilson suc- ceeded Marty Barfield, who passed away on December 31 after a long illness. In his new role, Wilson will be responsi- ble for leading all aspects of the Kingsport mill. A key focus will be its operational readiness for the mill’s entry into the containerboard market in 2022. Once in full operation, the converted mill is expected to produce and market approximately 600,000 tons annually of high-quality and medium recycled linerboard. The con- version is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2023. The city is expecting an “average local spend” of $130 million once the operation re-opens. Domtar esti- mates the conversion cost to be $300-$350 million.

ISM: Economic Improvement In U.S. To Continue In 2021
These projections are part of the forecast issued by the Business Survey Committee of Institute for Supply Management (ISM). The forecast was released last week by Timothy R. Fiore, CPSM, C.P.M, Chair of the ISM Man- ufacturing Business Survey Committee, and by Anthony S. Nieves, CPSM, C.P.M., A.P.P, CFPM, Chair of the ISM Ser- vices Business Survey Committee. Expectations for 2021 are positive, as 59 percent of survey respondents expect revenues to be greater in 2021 than in 2020. The panel of purchasing and supply executives expects a 6.9 percent net increase in overall revenues for 2021, compared to a 1.3 percent decrease reported for 2020. Fifteen of the 18 manufacturing indus- tries expect revenue improvement in 2021, listed in order: Printing & Related Support Activities; Transportation Equip- ment; Nonmetallic Mineral Products; Apparel, Leather & Al- lied Products; Machinery; Computer & Electronic Products; Primary Metals; Plastics & Rubber Products; Fabricated
Economic improvement in the United States will contin- ue in 2021, say the nation’s purchasing and supply man- agement executives in the December 2020 Semi-annual Economic Forecast. This expansion will continue a growth trend that began in June 2020. Revenues are expected to increase in 15 of 18 manu- facturing industries and 12 of 18 services-sector industries. Capital expenditures are expected to increase by 2.4 per- cent in the manufacturing sector (after a 2.4 percent de- cline in 2020) and increase by 12.7 percent in the services sector. The manufacturing employment base is expected to grow by 2.5 percent following a decline of 2.8 percent in 2019. Growth in the second half (h3) of the year is pro- jected to be stronger than in h2.

They are optimistic about overall business prospects for the first half of 2021, with business continuing to expand through the second half and at higher rates. Manu- facturing experienced seven consecutive months of growth from June through Decem- ber 2020, with December’s PMI at its high- est level since August 2018, the peak of the last manufacturing expansion. Respondents expect an increase in raw materials pricing pressures in 2021, as well as improved prof- it margins. Wages and employment will also return to growth. Manufacturers also predict growth in both exports and imports in 2021,” said Fiore. In the manufacturing sector, respondents report operating at 85.7 percent of their nor- mal capacity, up 9.8 percentage points from the 75.9 percent reported in May 2020. Pur- chasing and supply executives predict that capital expenditures will increase by 2.4 per- cent in 2021 over 2020, compared to the 2.4 percent decrease reported for 2020 over 2019. Manufacturers expect employment in the sector to grow by 2.5 percent in 2021 relative to December 2020levels, while labor and benefit costs are expected to increase an average of 2.7 percent. Respondents also expect the U.S. dollar to weaken against six of the seven currencies of major trading part- ners in 2021; it is expected to strengthen rel- ative to the Mexican peso.

Most recently, Wasatch installed a BW Papersystems MiniPro Flexo Folder Gluer that is able to print three col- ors outside and one color inside, all in a single pass. The inside/outside printing capability has expanded Wasatch’s customer base, resulting in its eCommerce business grow- ing significantly. “The MiniPro is a fabulous machine for eCommerce,” commented Frisch about the first machine of its kind in the region. “The fact that we don’t have to open and close the ma- chine to switch out print plates and ink is ideal for set-up times,” said Jason, the machine operator. “In my opinion, the MiniPro is one of the best printing machines I’ve ever worked on, as far as how it prints and the quality.” The designers’ goal at Wasatch is to provide custom- ers with an attractive, unique and custom box that adds value to their product and provides the end-user with an
enjoyable “unboxing experience.” The printing capabilities of the MiniPro, along with Arden Impact CAD software and a Zund cutting table, allow them to do just that. In order to keep up with the MiniPro machine speed of 22,000 boxes per hour, Wasatch Container installed a Sys- A MiniPro Flexo Folder Gluer by BW Papersystems can print three colors outside and one color inside in a sinngle pass.

In 2008, Wasatch Container purchased a 3-color 50-inch Flexo Folder Gluer. Frisch explained that this is the workhorse of their plant and has contributed to the growth of their business.
Also, in the plant is a 2-color 66-inch by 110-inch Ward Rotary Die Cutter that prints. Although this requires two passes for 2-sided printing, many of the award-winning boxes that are proudly displayed in the lobby, have been printed on the Ward machine. “Between our talented people and this machine, we’ve been able to do some outstanding printing,” said Frisch. Wasatch partnered with BCM Inks for an extensive ink kitchen, allowing Wasatch to custom match inks and their customers’ cor- porate colors. Along with BCM Inks, it has Wasatch Container installed a Systec Load For- mer and material handling equipment to manage the output of the MiniPro.

ume work. Much of their crate and foam business comes from the company’s aerospace and military customers. Frisch notes that although the foam business isn’t growing much due to the cost of materials, their case business is very niche and has a lot of room for potential growth. Growth And Future Investments Frisch explained that it’s the specialty and diverse pack- aging that has aided much of the company’s growth. The eCommerce business has grown largely due to buying habits during the pandemic and the printing capabilities of the MiniPro. When asked who the customers are that typically want inside printing, Frisch said, “Many of these customers want to increase their brand recognition by us- ing the inside print as a branding tool. These are custom- ers who are looking to give the end user a memorable and long-lasting impression when they open the box.” Wasatch Container has grown from a basic box plant into a diverse packaging company with niche markets, producing everything from foam (with or without cases), crates, corrugated boxes, and custom print packaging, in- cluding eCommerce. With 78 employees, two locations, an additional stock box business, Jerry Frisch has built an impressive reputa- tion in the Utah valley and the surrounding areas.

When asked if Frisch plans to get into digital printing, he stated that Wasatch will likely continue outsourcing its digital print business to AICC partners. They are currently studying options for printing on a rotary die cutter, as the plant expansion will likely include the purchase of a new machine and the material handling equipment to go with it. Frisch was also asked about succession planning, to which he explained that it is his intent to transition the business to his children, Ryan and Lauren Frisch. Jim Davis, retired owner of DeLine Box, closed the vir- tual tour by commending Jerry Frisch on his accomplish- ments at Wasatch saying, “I’ve known you since before you could spell the word ‘box’.

“Glitches” (Bug) – 2006 – Power – Kommersant
HEADING MANAGED BY MIKHAIL TROFIMENKOV
June 1, 1.20
Event of the Week is a film that instills hope that William Friedkin is not yet lost to humanity. Of course Glitches is not French Messenger (1971) or The Exorcist (1973). But against the backdrop of what Fridkin has been filming in recent years, this wicked, genuinely mysterious thriller is almost a B-movie.From the “Glitches” a fierce energy breathed just at the beginning of the 1970s, when parables about violence and madness as natural companions of the human race were in vogue. Friedkin shoots rough and dirty – to match the life of the waitress Agnes (Ashley Judd): the ex-husband has once again been released from prison and is about to show up to, as usual, beat her; the son disappeared without a trace; instead of a house – a motel in remote Oklahoma; the only friend is a lesbian. Agnes’s acquaintance with a good, albeit not without quirks, man Peter (Michael Shannon), who seems to be a retired, modest and polite, reminds of countless dramas on the meeting of two loneliness, but Fridkin, with straightforwardness, unforgivable to another director, filled the realistic exposition with weighty signs troubles: from mysterious phone calls that terrify Agnes, to Coppola’s inexorable rotation of the fan blades and the noise of a phantom helicopter, borrowed from Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now”.Peter does not have cockroaches in his head, everything is much worse: he has beetles that were allegedly thrown into his blood by the army “killers in white coats.” Fridkin films the sex of heroes in such a way that it resembles the transmission of some kind of infection, but which one – beetles or madness – he never explains. In general, it does not matter whether he shot an anti-war thrash satire, science fiction or a medical history: in any case, it turned out to be a horror film, frightening, unlike ordinary samples of the genre, precisely because the final nightmare is completely realistic, but, moreover, completely incredible: the viewer is doomed to be left alone with a riddle without a solution, more precisely, with a set of clues, one worse than the other.
Girl, Interrupted – 1999
June 1, 2.20
Faceless James Mangold has made a worthy example of the characteristically American psychiatric film genre. Of course, this is a great merit of the wonderful Winona Ryder, who played Suzanne Keysen, according to whose book about the psychiatric hospital, where she ended up after a suicide attempt in 1967 with a diagnosis of “borderline state”, the film was made.But Angelina Jolie was also surprised in the role of the scary Lisa. Viewers are accustomed to the fact that the patient leader, instigator to riot, is a kind of martyr-human rights activist a la Patrick McMurphy from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” Everything in life and film is much more neglected. Lisa’s strong personality, inciting Suzanne to sabotage the treatment and pulling her into an escape, is a dangerous sociopath, confident that “the world is full of fuses that are just waiting to be set on fire.” What she does with varying success, then driving Daisy (Brittany Murphy), who has already been discharged from the hospital, to suicide, then trying to destroy Suzanne, who, fortunately, nevertheless decides to take advantage of her stay in the hospital to get medical treatment, realizing that not all psychiatrists are monsters of the human race.
Letters from Iwo Jima – 2006
June 3, 0.40
The second, after Flags of Our Fathers (2006), is part of Clint Eastwood’s dilogy about the battle for the island of Iwo Jima, where in 1945 the 22,000th Japanese garrison fell, taking 7,000 Yankee paratroopers with them to the grave. Eastwood’s idea is simple and ingenious – to show the battle in two films, first through the eyes of the Americans, and then the Japanese: “12 thousand bodies.unidentified Japanese soldiers are still lying on Iwo Jima, and I believe they deserve the same respect as the Americans. “The real Japanese generals Kuribayashi (Ken Watanabe) and Nishi (Tsuyoshi Ihara), who had a sincere attraction to America: the horseman, remained unidentified. Nishi even won the Olympics in Los Angeles (1932). Documents of the soldier Saigo (Kazunari Ninomiya) will be found by archaeologists in a prologue dated to our days. “Letters” is linear and extremely simple: this is a film about how almost 30 thousand people died for nothing.soldier. Eastwood, a militarist who has become a pacifist, a humanist who not only feels, but also loves war, because, not loving war, it is impossible to film it as coolly as he did, performed a miracle. He made the audience see in generals, cruel heroes, before the death of ordering their soldiers to commit suicide, but not surrender, and in privates who dream of surrender, but are forced to die in battle, having learned that the Yankee Marine had dealt with the lucky one who surrendered, not that so as not to be enemies – in the reality of 1945 they are, of course, enemies – but their brothers, no matter how pathetic it may sound.It’s just that the Japanese from the Letters are already bound by patriotic propaganda, the construction of which – using the example of the orderly assigned heroes of American soldiers – Eastwood demonstrated in The Flags. It is characteristic that not a single Japanese director has yet decided to make a film about Iwo Jima.

Once, a boy was painstakingly sketching something in his album. “What’s in there?” – the father was interested. “Pictures about how we live!” – “What pictures?” – “Merry!” Then Semyonov came up with and drew the main character, which became the symbol of the magazine – Pencil, – a funny, kind and cheerful little man with a red lead instead of a nose, and Samodelkin, Buratino, Chipollino, Dunno became his magazine friends …

“Casting out the devil” (8.5/10)
Director: William Friedkin.
Starring: Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow, Linda Blair, Lee J. Cobb, Jason Miller.
Genre: horror. Country: USA.Year: 1973. Duration: 02:02.
“People go to the movies for three reasons: they want to laugh, cry and scare themselves. And you need to make films only to make you laugh, scare or make you cry ”- William Friedkin .
Trouble comes to the family of a famous actress – her minor daughter begins to behave in an inappropriate way. The mother believes that this is a consequence of her personal tragedy, doctors suspect a mental illness and are unable to make a diagnosis. A specially invited priest suspects that the girl is possessed by the devil.
However, in the modern atheistic world, no one believes that a person can be possessed by an unclean spirit, not even the church itself. Nevertheless, the last surviving exorcist (“exorcist”) Father Lancaster Merrin is called from Asia by the Vatican…
This film, based on the novel by William Peter Blatty, is undeniably one of the most terrifying in the history of cinema. In it, floors and walls swing, objects fly around the room, murders are committed, an inhuman roar is heard and there is a mass of visual effects designed to scare you. The main action bedroom was set up in the 20th Century Fox pavilion. All kinds of equipment and air conditioners worth 50 thousand dollars were placed in the next room, capable of cooling the air to zero degrees, so that real steam would come from the mouths of those present.The whole room swayed and shook while the outside background remained motionless. “We used different technical devices,” says Fridkin, “some of the beds were hanging from the ceiling – they could be used to depict a flight around the room, while others made the girl jump.”
Fridkin showed in such detail the struggle of priests with demons that he was accused of excessive naturalism. Max von Sydow played the old priest so convincingly that he was even asked once if he himself believed in the devil.“No,” the artist replied, “I don’t believe in the devil, therefore, I don’t believe in spells either. However, many believe in them, so why deny people the opportunity to be healed? How not to help? ” The director also said that he did not believe in the devil and took up the adaptation of the book, because it exacerbates fears in every person, which “help to resist evil.”
“Let the audience leave the cinemas each with their own opinion, we do not force them to any conclusion. If you yourself are not inclined to mysticism, then you will not find it in our film either.If you do not believe in the existence of evil spirits, then in our film you will see completely different important problems. ”
The Exorcist, Warner Bros. released on Christmas Day 1973, at the box office he took first place, displacing the “Godfather” himself, won two “Oscars” – in the nominations “Best Adapted Screenplay” and “Best Sound”, and when reissued in 2000 he collected in the US film distribution 39 million 661 thousand dollars.
Very interesting facts:
- Ellen Burstyn agreed to star in the film, provided that her character does not utter the phrase: “I believe in the devil!”, As required by the script.The producers agreed and decided to remove this statement.
- Stanley Kubrick wanted to direct a film, but only on condition that he also became one of the co-producers. The studio’s owners were worried that Kubrick might be out of budget and out of schedule, so they hired Mark Rydell to direct. However, Bletty (the film’s writer and author of the book) insisted on William Friedkin.
- The shooting was haunted by frequent failures, mystical events.Nine people associated with the production of the painting have died. Once, on one of the weekends, all the decorations burned down – the cause of the fire has not yet been clarified. Actors Jack McGowran and Vasiliki Miliaros died shortly before the film’s release.
- William Peter Blatty once won $ 10,000 on Groucho Marx’s The Bet Is Your Life. When the host asked what he would spend the money on, Blatty replied, “To write a novel,” which turned out to be The Exorcist, published in 1971 and becoming a bestseller.
- The Exorcist was named the scariest movie ever by Entertainment Weekly.
- On one of the first days of filming the exorcism scene, Linda Blair’s profanity monologue made such a strong impression on Max Von Sydow that he simply forgot his lyrics.
- The 1973 film rental was accompanied by mass hysteria, spectators fainting during screenings and ambulances on duty outside the cinemas.There were also more curious cases. So, one of the spectators fainted while watching and hit his head on the back of the front seat and broke his jaw. He sued Warner Bros., claiming that he was influenced by the “25 frames” that the film was full of. The studio managed to solve the problem out of court by paying a certain amount to the excited movie fan.
- The famous movie poster of Father Marryn standing in front of the McNeil home borrows motives from René Magritte’s 1953 “Empire des lumières” painting by René Magritte.
- After the film, Linda Blair received a huge number of threats against her. Warner Bros. she had to hire bodyguards for six months.
- Given today’s inflation, The Exorcist is the highest grossing film of all time with an R rating.
- The sounds the demon makes as it leaves Regan’s body are actually the squeals of a pig sent to the slaughterhouse.
- In the scene where the possessed Regan masturbates with a crucifix, was fully played by Linda Blair herself, she says she was fully aware of what she was doing and what she was trying to portray.
- Linda Blair was nominated for Best Supporting Actress Oscar even before it was revealed that the demon was actually voiced by another actress (Mercedes McCambridge). According to the rules of the film academy, Linda could no longer lose the nomination, but the discussion that the award should belong to McCambridge, in fact, took away all chances for Linda to win.
- Max Von Sydow was young enough at that time, and in order to become an aging, sophisticated exorcist, he had to spend several hours a day in a make-up artist’s chair.
- The studio wanted to invite Marlon Brando to play Father Marrin. Friedkin immediately spoke out against it, arguing that it would no longer be his film, but “a film with Marlon Brando.”
- 1974 – Two Academy Awards: Best Adapted Screenplay (William Peter Blatty), Best Sound (Robert Knudson, Christopher Newman)
- 1974 – 4 Golden Globes: Best Film – Drama, Best Director (William Friedkin), Best Screenplay (William Peter Blatty), Best Supporting Actress (Linda Blair)

The capacity of the railway infrastructure in the Arctic will grow – Rossiyskaya Gazeta
Plans to expand the capacity of the railway in the Murmansk region are taking shape. Following his October visit to the Arctic, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin instructed the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Eastern Development, together with interested federal executive bodies, the government of the Murmansk region, Russian Railways and the State Transport Leasing Company to prepare proposals for the implementation of the project “Integrated Development of the Murmansk Transport Hub” by December 10.
In particular, the task was set to increase the carrying and throughput capacity of the railway infrastructure by 2035 to 100 million tons of cargo per year, as well as to synchronize this work with the deadlines for completing the construction of a coal terminal with a capacity of 18 million tons per year.
This will expand the “bottleneck” on the railway approaches to the Murmansk transport hub, the carrying capacity of which at the moment is about 20-25 million tons per year, experts from the Institute of Socio-Economic and Energy Problems of the North of the Komi Scientific Center of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Anatoly Kiselenko, Petr Malashchuk and Evgeny Sundukov.RG has already reported that the carrying capacity of the Volkhovstroy – Belomorsk – Murmansk route on the Petrozavodsk – Murmansk section is practically exhausted. This fact was evident even more than ten years ago, when the Murmansk transport hub was just being designed. Today, the Murmansk region is connected with the “mainland” by a single-track railway, although the project “Comprehensive Development of MTU” suggests that the entire section from Volkhovstroy to Murmansk was to become a double-track.
– The Arctic needs to develop transshipment hubs, one of which they intend to create in Murmansk, – emphasize the specialists of the Murmansk State Technical University Yaroslav Bolshakov and Vitaly Fridkin.- The throughput capacity of the railway does not allow attracting new large cargo flows to the Murmansk port. The port of Murmansk itself, due to its coal specialization, cannot fully develop other directions before the construction of a new coal terminal on the western coast of the Kola Bay.
Representatives of Russian Railways confirm: the railway component of the Murmansk transport hub really requires serious strengthening, and first of all, on long-distance approaches. According to the head of the Oktyabrskaya railway, Vladimir Goloskokov, the project to “join” the Volkhovstroy-Murmansk section is practically ready for implementation.Within its framework, it is planned to build the second main tracks on the limiting sections of the 1340 km checkpoint – Lapland and Lapland – Pulozero, the second track on the Nefelinovye Sands – Khibiny section.
The throughput capacity of the railway does not allow attracting new large cargo flows to the Murmansk port.
The receiving and departure routes of the Taibola, Kandalaksha, Kem, Nigozero, Chupa stations will also have to be lengthened. In total, it is planned to build second tracks on seven sections, reconstruct 12 stations and restore one siding.
In addition, the Lengiprotrans Institute has started engineering surveys and pre-design studies for the construction of a new marshalling yard in the Murmansk railway junction, which is supposed to be located near the existing Shongui station.
