Are You Now or Have You Ever Been

"Are You Now or Have You Ever Been" is episode 2 of season 2 in the television show Angel. Written by Tim Minear and directed by David Semel, it was broadcast on October 3, 2000, on the WB network. In the episode, Angel recalls a traumatic experience during the 1950s at the Hyperion Hotel; the episode is a fan favorite and was a personal favorite of actor David Boreanaz. Writer Tim Minear said it was enjoyable for him to write the episode though he preferred writing longer story arcs that unfolded over the course of an entire season. Angel asks Cordelia to look into the mysterious history of the abandoned Hyperion Hotel. A photograph of the hotel blends into an action shot of the hotel exterior during the 1950s, as the manager sends the bellhop upstairs to give the guest in 217 his weekly bill; the bellhop nervously makes his delivery runs downstairs, as Angel- the feared occupant of 217 -opens the door. As the House Un-American Activities Committee hearings blare on a TV, Angel strolls through the lobby and the manager turns away an African-American family, telling them that the hotel has no vacancies.

On the second floor, heading towards his room, he observes a man banging on a door. In the background, two men share a furtive romantic moment outside a room door. Back in his room, Angel finds a woman pretending to be a maid; when Angel calls her bluff, she tells him that she's hiding from her boyfriend, the man earlier seen banging on a door. Angel helps her hide from him. In the present, Angel visits the now-abandoned Hyperion. While doing research with Wesley, Cordelia discovers that the property is a historical landmark, but that it has been plagued by strange events since it was built. Cordelia spots Angel in a 1952 photograph of the hotel lobby, Wesley realizes that Angel has a personal connection to the Hyperion. In 1952, the salesman in the room next to Angel's listens to a record, talks to someone unseen holds a gun to his head. Angel hears a gunshot and the record skipping, drinks his glass of chilled blood without reacting; when the manager and bellhop discover the salesman's suicide, the manager hears a demonic voice whispering, "They'll shut you down," and instructs the bellhop not to call the police.

They hide the body in a meat locker. That night, the guests gather at Griffith Observatory, where they discuss the suicide and wonder why the police haven't been notified. Judy tries to thank Angel; the next day, the guests continue to discuss the salesman, questioning if he might have been murdered. Upstairs, when Angel comments on Judy's agitation, she confesses the man banging on the door was a PI sent by the bank from which she stole money, she was fired from the bank when they found out that, although she "passes" as white, she is part African American. Her fiancé left her when he found out. Angry at the bank, she stole the money, but has not spent any of it, Judy regrets her decision to steal. Angel replies that "fear makes people do stupid things," clarifies he was referring to her employers; as Angel stashes Judy's bag of money in the basement, he hears whispering and realizes something in the hotel is making people paranoid. In the present and Wesley find newspaper reports of the bellhop's execution for the salesman's murder, an article about Judy with the headline, "Search Called Off — Fugitive Woman Believed Dead."

Down in the basement, Angel once again hears the whispering. He contacts the others, announcing the hotel hosts a Thesulac demon that whispers to its victims feeds on their insecurities, he says he knows the ritual to make it corporeal so that it can be killed. In 1952, Angel returns from a bookstore; when the guests turn on her, she points them towards Angel, announcing that he has blood in his room. Everyone attacks Angel, except Judy. Angel is dragged into the hallway; the crowd cheers slowly wonders what they've done. When everyone leaves, Angel drops to the lobby floor. On the stairs, the Thesulac demon becomes corporeal, her pain at what she has done to Angel has made her "a meal that will last a lifetime". The demon says, "There's an entire hotel here just full of tortured souls that could use your help." Angel replies, "Take them all.", abandoning Judy and the rest of the residents to their fate. In the present, Cordelia and Gunn arrive at the Hyperion and, after performing the spell to make the Thesulac corporeal, Angel electrocutes it with the exposed wires of the fuse box.

Angel heads upstairs and finds Judy, now old, still in her room, where she has served as the Demon's "room service" since 1952. She says the voices are gone, asks Angel if it is safe to go out, he tells her it is. She tells Angel that she is sorry she got him killed and asks his forgiveness, he assures her she tells her that he forgives her. She passes away. Angel returns announces that they're moving in. Wesley reminds Angel that evil things have happened in the hotel, but Angel tells him that all of, in the past; this is another episode by writer Tim Minear. "He's cynical, I-don't-get-involved guy, I thought, a interesting place to

Sirius (synchrotron light source)

Sirius is a diffraction-limited storage ring synchrotron light source at the Laboratório Nacional de Luz Síncrotron in Campinas, São Paulo State, Brazil. It has a circumference of 518.4 metres, a diameter of 165 metres, an electron energy of 3 GeV. The produced synchrotron radiation covers the range of infrared, ultraviolet and X-ray light. Costing R$1.8 billion, it was funded by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Communication and the São Paulo Research Foundation. Discussion started in 2008, initial funding of R$2 million was granted in 2009. Construction started in 2015, is due to open in 2018. With its construction near the end, Sirius will be the second particle accelerator in Brazil, next to the UVX operator by the LNLS. Brazil and Argentina are the only countries in South America to operate particle accelerators; the tool will be used to understand the atomic structure of substances with which scientists are going to work, which can help in the development of new drugs, in the enhancement of materials used in construction, oil exploration and in many other areas.

The 68,000-square-meter building will house a circumferential 500-meter facility. To protect people from the radiation released by machine operation, designed to be the most advanced of its kind in the world, the whole will be shielded by 1 kilometer of concrete walls. A barrier of 1.5 meters thick and 3 meters high. The investment in the project is R$1.8 billion, the most ambitious scientific project made in Brazil. It is expected to be completed by 2018 and operating by 2019, although its project is expected to be fulfilled in 2020. According to project scientists, Sirius will have the ability to project matter under pressure equivalent to that of the planet's Jupiter nucleus, being the first particle accelerator with such capacity Official website
