No sarcasm at all, "Uncle Remus" sounded to me like a plausible Russian name.
Anyway, it was a great work you did. I had been an occasional technical translator in the 80's and 90's and it is the hell of a job. For my own use I only work in English originals, never translations.

Yeah, makes sense. Italian emigrants to the US, named their slave Remus and their dog Romulus.  :skrewy:

The sad end of Uncle Remus Tales.
Disney parks change the Splash Mountain attraction due to racism

The campaign to combat racism that has swept the United States after police killing african american George Floyd has no boundaries. Following the demolition of monuments to the leaders of the Confederation, Christopher Columbus and the Founding Fathers of the United States, it came to reforming the sphere of children's entertainment.

Vicious "Songs of the South"

"The Song of the South" is a 1946 American live-actors/animated musical drama film produced by Walt Disney and released by RKO Radio Pictures. It is based on the collection of Uncle Remus stories as adapted by Joel Chandler Harris, and stars James Baskett as Uncle Remus. The film takes place in the southern United States during the Reconstruction era, a period of American history after the end of the American Civil War and the abolition of slavery. The story follows seven-year-old Johnny (Bobby Driscoll) who is visiting his grandmother's plantation for an extended stay. Johnny befriends Uncle Remus, one of the workers on the plantation, and takes joy in hearing his tales about the adventures of Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox, and Br'er Bear. Johnny learns from the stories how to cope with the challenges he is experiencing while living on the plantation.

Walt Disney had wanted to produce a film based on the Uncle Remus stories for some time. It was not until 1939 that he began negotiating with the Harris family for the film rights, and in 1944, filming for "The Song of the South" began. The studio constructed a plantation set for the outdoor scenes in Phoenix, Arizona, while other scenes were filmed in Hollywood. The film is predominantly live-actors, but includes three animated segments, which were later released as stand-alone television features. Some scenes also feature a combination of live-actors with animation. "The Song of the South" premiered in Atlanta in November 1946 and the remainder of its initial theater run was a financial success.  Walt Disney was impressed with Baskett's talent and hired him on the spot for the lead role of Uncle Remus. Baskett was also given the voice role of Brer Fox, one of the film's animated antagonists, and also filled in as the main animated protagonist, Brer Rabbit, in one sequence. This was one of the first Hollywood portrayals of a black actor as a non-comic character in a leading role in a film meant for general audiences.

Baskett was prohibited from attending the film's premiere in Atlanta, Georgia, because Atlanta was racially segregated by law.

Although Baskett was occasionally criticized for accepting such a "demeaning" role (most of his acting credits were that of African-American stereotypes), his acting was almost universally praised, and columnist Hedda Hopper, along with Walt Disney, was one of the many journalists and personalities who declared that he should receive an Academy Award for his work.

On March 20, 1948, Baskett received an Academy Honorary Award for his performance as Uncle Remus.

He was the first African-American male actor to win an Academy Award. Additionally, Baskett was the last adult actor to receive an Honorary Oscar for a single performance.

Since its original release, "The Song of the South" has remained a subject of controversy. Some critics have described the film's portrayal of African Americans as racist and offensive, maintaining that the black vernacular and other qualities are stereotypes. In addition, the plantation setting is sometimes criticized as idyllic and glorified. Because of this controversy, Disney has not released "The Song of the South" on any home video format in the United States, nor is it available on its streaming platform Disney+. Some of the musical and animated sequences have been released through other means, and the full film has seen home video distribution in other countries. The cartoon characters from the film have continued to appear in a variety of books, comics, and other media. The Disney theme park ride Splash Mountain was originally based on the film's animated sequences when it opened in 1989.

In 2003, the online film critics community ranked the film as the 67th best animated film of all time.

But all the old regalias of the film did not save the film from accusations of inculcating racial prejudices. The same claims were made by anti-racist activists to the water attraction based on film "The Song of the South".

Correct Tiana

In the wake of the protests surrounding the Floyd case, a petition was published on Change.org, which said that the trip to Splash Mountain "is saturated with extremely problematic and racist stereotypes." Approximately 20,000 signatures were collected in support of demands to revise the design of the attraction, after which the management of The Walt Disney Company considered it best to comply with the demands of the activists.

According to the company, the waterslide will be redesigned in the style of the movie "The Princess and the Frog".

“Tiana is a modern, bold and determined woman who follows her dreams and never loses sight of what really matters,” reads a message posted on the company's website. "The new concept is comprehensive, allowing all of our guests to communicate and be inspired by it, and speak volumes about the diversity of the millions of people who visit our parks each year."

What is so special about the 2009 film compared to the 1946 film? The fact is that the main character of "The Princess and the Frog" Tiana is african american.

Disney Animator Mark Henn stated: “The heroines of our films have changed over time. Previously, they were just “princesses in trouble”, like Snow White - victims of unfortunate events who did not have power over their own destiny. It was easy to fall in love with such heroines. Tiana is a completely different story; she has a goal, strong motivation, she is able to make decisions, and this is what makes her interesting and attractive. "

The waterslide in Disney parks will now correspond to the correct understanding of the place of african americans in the modern world.

It's time to fix mistakes
Judging by the comments on the company's website, the changes caused quite conflicting feelings among the Americans themselves.

"Bravo! That's the right decision. Disney is doing the next right thing. We're going to miss Splash Mountain, but it's time to fix the bugs associated with using the problem movie on the ride, ”writes a user named Jackie.
“I am very sad that Disney is giving in to pressure again. There was nothing wrong with this ride and most people weren't even aware of the topic. It was such a fun and happy trip with great music, nothing can replace it. I will not ride the new attraction. With all these changes, I can stop visiting Disneyland altogether, ”says user Sharon.

The fate of the Splash Mountain attraction, located in Japan, is unclear. As far as know, no one there complained about the water slide, but it is possible that racial reforms will take place there. Although, based on the course taken, for Japan, Disney would be worth looking for a heroine with an Asian appearance.

By the way, the 6-year-old daughter of the deceased Floyd Gianna is a Disney shareholder. The shares of the company were presented to the girl by the American actress and singer Barbra Streisand.

If this goes on, then in children's amusement parks, white heroes will only meet in a kneeling position, bringing repentance over the years of humiliation on racial, gender and other grounds.

Does the timer02 program under Windows 10 have an indicator displayed on the screen? Why are you silent?
There ara asm-/rc-/exe-files timer02a.exe, timer02b.exe, timer03c.exe executables were assembled with resources and indicators are normally displayed under Windows 7 and 10 in the attachment. To make exe work both under "seven" and under "ten" I had to remove the permission to write to the .code (.text,W) section and the alignment /ALIGN:16 from the bat-file The difference between timer02a.exe, timer02b.exe, timer03c.exe
1.When creating a resource in timer02a.rc, the BITMAP type resource has the name "MYBP1"
Code: [Select]
MYBP1 BITMAP "03.bmp"in timer02a.asm
Code: [Select]
.data
aMYBP1 db "MYBP1",0
.code
mov edx,offset aMYBP1
invoke LoadBitmap,IMAGE_BASE
mov hBitmap,eax
2. When creating a resource in timer02b.rc, a BITMAP type resource is identified by number (100)
Code: [Select]
#define MYBP1 100
MYBP1 BITMAP "03.bmp"
timer02b.asm
Code: [Select]
MYBP1 equ 100
.code
invoke LoadBitmap,IMAGE_BASE,MYBP1
mov hBitmap,eax
3. When creating a resource in timer02c.rc, a resource of type BITMAP is associated with the number 100, but which is described as the string
Code: [Select]
100 BITMAP "03.bmp" in timer02c.asm
Code: [Select]
.data
aMYBP1 db "#100",0
.code
mov edx,offset aMYBP1
invoke LoadBitmap,IMAGE_BASE
mov hBitmap,eax
