Pythagorean Theorem Converse
This video describes the converse of the Pythagoreum Theorem. If we know that the sum of two square sides in a triangle equals the square of the third side, we can conclude that the triangle is a right triangle. Pythagorean triples are commonly seen side lengths that indicate when a triangle is a right triangle. Knowing these triples will save time when in calculations related to the Pythagorean theorem.

"Alfred Hitchcock et ses femmes d'extérieur", une conférence de Marie Anne Guérin
Comme beaucoup des personnages féminins qui l'ont précédée, mais plus encore, Marnie néglige les lois et ouvre un espace cinématographique inédit de fuite et de filature. Et c'est dans sa période américaine qu'Hitchcock, systématiquement, flanque ses héroïnes à la porte. Sans foyer, ce sont des délinquantes dont le destin s'accomplit dehors, dans les rues, sur les quais de gare, dans les cimetières et les motels...
