gauss

A cgs (non-SI) unit of magnetic field strength, which approximates that of the earth's magnetic field at its surface (circa 0.5–1G). One gauss (G) = 1 line of flux/cm2. As larger magnetic fields are common in MRIs, gauss has been largely replaced by tesla (T), where 1 T = 10,000 G.

The bodice-ripping Bram Stoker's Dracula (Francis Ford Coppola, 1992) and Interview with the Vampire (Neil Jordon, 1994) are briefly covered, but many other films such as Ravenous (Antonia Bird, 1999), The Company of Wolves (Neil Jordon, 1984) and Brotherhood of the Wolf (Christophe Gaus, 2001) have used period drama as a basis to explore the horrors lurking in all societies.

Un criterio acertado de Gaus fue respetar las ideas confrontadas sobre ciertos puntos con el uso de los corchetes (por ejemplo, algunos expertos en el rubro del cine opinan que es necesario cambiar las leyes que rigen el doblaje de las peliculas extranjeras que se exhiben en Mexico para propiciar fuentes de trabajo alternativas para los actores mexicanos; otros, por el contrario, que es necesario respetar el subtitulaje, lo que permite apreciar las cintas cabalmente).
