first_imgMumbai: Lisa Haydon is expecting her second baby and the model-actor plans to return to the screen after giving birth. The Queen star last week announced that she and her husband Dino Lalvani are expecting their second child together. They are already parents to two-year-old Zack. “After this one (child), I feel like I’ve given my children each other and I don’t mind taking a break and you know, doing a bit of work. Hopefully, my baby making phase might come to a pause for a few years. And yes, then hopefully you’ll see me in the movies,” said Lisa on the sidelines of the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019.

I’ve always been a huge fan of him,” she said. Lisa, who describes her personal style as feminine but not girly, said coming to the LFW feels like home. “One of my earliest modelling jobs was being the face of Lakme and then walking the Fashion Week and now doing showstopping gigs every season.

UN partners with academia to explore how technology can help in disaster

0 Comments

3 December 2010The United Nations and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative are launching a new research project aiming to enhance information-sharing between large aid organizations and grassroots technology groups during humanitarian emergencies, it was announced today. The project, funded by the Technology Partnership between the UN Foundation (UNF) and The Vodafone Foundation, was announced during the Pulse Camp 1.0 conference run by the Secretary-General’s UN Global Pulse initiative.Researchers from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative – an interdisciplinary programme working to advance the science and practice of humanitarian responses – will interview experts to assess how information is and can be shared during humanitarian emergencies.“Technology holds tremendous potential to improve global humanitarian work,” said Kathy Calvin, CEO of the UN Foundation. “Through our partnership with The Vodafone Foundation, we can work alongside OCHA and Harvard to better understand how the rapid growth of mobile and ‘cloud-based’ technologies can unlock access to information, empowering disaster-affected communities and strengthening the ability of relief workers to save lives.”Technology Partnership has already conducted a great deal of work into how information and communication technologies (ICTs) can strengthen preparedness for responses to major humanitarian emergencies, investing $7.4 million in such research.Valerie Amos, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and head of OCHA, welcomed the announcement of the project, seeing opportunities for her office to have greater impact in the future on disaster-affected communities.“With access to information, survivors of disasters can make the right choices for themselves and their families. We look forward to the findings of this report and to working more closely with the growing community of groups and individuals with whom we can harness information to better serve beneficiaries in emergencies,” she said.The initial research findings will be presented in a report on 12 January 2011, the one-year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake, and the full report will be available at the 2011 Harvard Humanitarian Action Summit, to be held from 4 to 6 March in Cambridge, Massachusetts. read more

Louise Arbour starts work as new UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

0 Comments

The General Assembly established the position in December 1993, with a wide-ranging mandate to oversee the world body’s complex and multifaceted activities in that field. The first person to hold the job was José Ayala Lasso, a former Foreign Minister from Ecuador, who was succeeded by Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland.Mr. Vieira de Mello assumed the job on 12 September 2002 before being asked to take what was supposed to be a temporary leave to serve as UN envoy to Iraq, where he was killed in the terrorist bombing that also took the lives of 21 others.Ms. Arbour, 57, was Chief Prosecutor of the UN International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda from October 1996 to September 1999 – a period of intense activity for both courts. Throughout her career, she has published extensively in the fields of criminal procedure, human rights, civil liberties and gender issues. She was admitted to the Quebec Bar in 1971 and the Bar of Ontario in 1977. She served for 13 years as Associate Professor of Law and later Associate Dean at Osgoode Hall Law School at York University. Fluent in both English and French, she became a member of the bench in December 1987, first as a trial judge on the Supreme Court of Ontario and, in 1990, at the Ontario Court of Appeal. In April 1995, she was chosen to lead an official investigation into the operation of the correctional service of Canada, based on allegations by female inmates at a women’s prison in Kingston (Ontario). Until her appointment to the bench, she served as vice-president of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. read more

Former Fortis president takes over company leading Muskrat Falls project

0 Comments

Former Fortis president takes over company leading Muskrat Falls project ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – The newly appointed head of the company leading the troubled $9.2 billion Muskrat Falls hydro project in Labrador says reviewing the development will be an immediate priority.Premier Dwight Ball announced Thursday that former Fortis Inc. (TSX:FTS), president Stan Marshall will take over as president and CEO of Crown corporation Nalcor after Ed Martin’s abrupt resignation Wednesday.Marshall said he would launch an immediate review of the company and the over-budget, behind-schedule megaproject.“When these things get off track, it’s a very poor sign, they tend to go from bad to worse,” he said. “So we need to find out where this thing really is…I am concerned, very much. I’ve had concerns about Muskrat Falls from the beginning.”The Liberals, who won power last fall after 12 years of Progressive Conservative rule, have pledged to tighten oversight of Muskrat Falls, Nalcor’s major venture.First power, which was originally to be generated by 2017, is now delayed until sometime in 2018.Nalcor has most recently estimated its costs at just over $7.6 billion while Emera’s are almost $1.6 billion.A recent interim report by EY — formerly Ernst and Young — found problems with oversight. It also said Nalcor’s cost and timeline forecasts last September were “not reasonable.”Marshall wouldn’t say whether stopping the project is a possibility.“There’s always a point in any project where the cost of going forward is not worth it…hard to say,” he said.Ball praised Marshall’s 35-year record with Fortis, and defended the decision to appoint him without a formal search process.“I think not accepting Mr. Marshall to lead the company at this point would not have been the right decision for me,” said Ball. “I think the evidence is really in the experience he’s had in his own career.”Ball says a further announcement is coming regarding Wednesday night’s resignation of the remaining Nalcor board members.— By Ruth Davenport in Halifax by The Canadian Press Posted Apr 21, 2016 8:31 am MDT Last Updated Apr 21, 2016 at 1:51 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

US mining launches minerals initiative

0 Comments

first_imgYesterday the National Mining Association (NMA) launched an education and advocacy campaign to raise awareness on the critical role US-mined minerals play in the daily lives of the US population and how they help foster innovation, economic growth and national security. The initiative is called Minerals Make Life.It will share information with audiences nationwide, including federal, state and local policymakers, business leaders, academics and the general public, on what minerals mean to America, the challenges facing the nation’s supply chain and solutions to ensuring increased investment in developing domestic mineral resources. It will also underscore the diminishing share the US has of global investment in metals mining – the lowest in history – and how that impedes the nation’s ability to succeed as other countries compete for mineral resources.“This is an opportunity for us to demonstrate minerals’ importance to the nation,” said Hal Quinn, President and CEO of NMA. “If we want to continue to grow our economy and lead the innovation race, we need to engage in constructive conversations about balanced policies that encourage investment in the development of our domestic minerals.”As part of the initiative’s launch, a new website, http://www.mineralsmakelife.org/, has been developed. The site, which includes an educational tool kit, provides information on how minerals are used by various industries and their link to economic prosperity and national security. The site also allows visitors to ‘take action’ and voice their opinions on the need to increase use of the nation’s domestic mineral resources and other issues affecting US mining.Minerals mining supports more than 1.1 million American jobs nationwide, and minerals are used to make roughly $2 trillion worth of products annually-about 13% of US gross domestic product.“Minerals are the building blocks of our economy and the keys to an innovative future,” said Quinn. “They are vital resources and an important part of our lives-from smart phones to lifesaving medical devices to the cars we drive. We need to implement policies that ensure the United States is more self-reliant and has the minerals needed to foster continued growth.”To learn more about minerals and their importance, visit http://www.mineralsmakelife.org/last_img read more

Surprise Publishers Firmly Embracing Long Tail

0 Comments

first_imgLast July, FOLIO: led a roundtable discussion with nine industry leaders about the ever-evolving world of magazine publishing technologies. Topics discussed included print manufacturing, the transformation of e-media, databases and more. We caught up with several members of the original group to find out what, if anything, has changed and if their predictions came true.FOLIO:: At the start of that roundtable discussion, several of you indicated that RSS feeds were having the greatest impact on your businesses. Is that still true today? Paul Gerbino, publisher, ThomasNet: We still see around 16 to 17 percent of the page views coming from usage of our RSS. The usage still comes from different channels. Today, from an overall ThomasNet perspective, [what’s having the biggest impact] is the development of catalog enabling technologies that allow our advertisers to compete in today’s marketplace. It is one thing to create awareness for our advertisers and to drive traffic to their sites, but if they cannot convert that traffic into customers, then it is difficult for them to grow and, in turn, grow their investments with us.Doug Harbrecht, director of new media, the Kiplinger Organization: Not as much with RSS. The big surprise for me this year has been the firm industry embrace of the “Long Tail” theory. Despite the economic downturn, we’re getting a growing number of RFPs from big online advertisers who haven’t been with us in the past. Through research, they’re discovering niche targets important to their strategies in our core audience. This development promises continued strong growth for us. Our challenge is to keep growing our audience with the trusted, tried-and-true wisdom that Kiplinger is known for, in more focused ways, building new communities.FOLIO:: Regarding manufacturing and proofing, you spoke about the opportunities in going proofless. What advances have you seen here? Is it still as relevant?Jim Delahanty, director of production and digital ad services, BusinessWeek: I haven’t seen a lot of progress in this area and have not received overwhelming requests from our advertisers to move in this direction. Agencies appear to remain cautious in moving in this direction and prefer still to send a proof as guidance on press. Also, many print vendors are not convinced the investment to outfit each press with monitor proofing equipment would give them the payback they are looking for. The focus of printers continues to be investment of closed-loop systems and running to “the numbers,” which have recently been improved by SWOP.FOLIO:: When asked what your biggest technological imperative was over the next year you said it was having a consistent content management system across your publications and Web sites that would allow you to tag [content] and understand what you have rights to use and how you can use them. Was that, in fact, the most imperative? How did it work out?Chris Johnson, vice president of content and business development, Hearst Digital: We rolled out an open-source content management system, built by our in-house development team, which allowed us to standardize our production process. We’ve just completed upgrading and redesigning the blog, photo gallery and search experiences across our 15 magazine-branded sites in just a few months.We expanded the system to enable syndication, user-generated content, promotions management, and integration with out image storage system. This year, we’ll roll out a completely integrated image management process, which will cut hundreds of hours of manual work that our site editors undertake each month. Effective digital asset management is critical to mining the gold out of the vast content mines that companies like Hearst have in digital format.FOLIO:: You said your biggest technological imperative was to leverage RSS feeds to microtarget audiences to get them to visit specially-designed landing pages that you thought advertisers would pay a premium for. Was it?Harbrecht: Most imperative? Not so much, but still imperative, yes. We’ll focus on that later this year.We want to implement Flash toward the end of the year to give our visitors a richer experience, improving the presentation on our home page, improving slide shows and quizzes. We just invested in new video graphics technology that gives our videos a zippier, more polished look and feel. We’re already using it.Heading into next year, we are exploring new CMS platforms that will allow us to better integrate interactive elements such as forums and reader comment boxes with our overall editorial content. FOLIO:: What are your imperatives for the remainder of the year and heading into 2009?Delahanty: This year and next we are in the process of upgrading our issue mapping and ad tracking to Publisher’s Studio and are launching an ad portal later this year for advertisers who want to deposit their ads via this method. We continue to look at hosted solutions applications and review technology and how it supports the business community.Johnson: From a publishing perspective, we’re focusing on open-platform initiatives, such as incorporating third-party technology solutions and improving our ability to ingest and manage user-influenced content. We’re partnering with major portals and search engines to use their enabling technologies—like registration, search query results, and mapping systems—inside our pages.To be competitive, we have to integrate with the best of what’s out there, and be selective about what we build ourselves.last_img read more

The Mandalorian trailer new cast member revealed at D23

0 Comments

first_imgIt would’ve seen players exploring the bowels of the city planet Coruscant — the title was a reference to its grimy underworld Level 1313 (which later appeared in The Clone Wars).After it was canceled, we found out that Boba Fett was going to be the star and that Kennedy later agreed the concept art was “unbelievable.” Favreau also shared a photo of a prop that looks a whole lot like that ice cream makery can carried by cult Empire Strikes Back character Willrow Hood — perhaps an effort to highlight the show’s attention to classic Star Wars detail. The Mandalorian will be among the first projects for ILM TV, the newly announced TV division of Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic visual effects company. It’ll be run from a new studio in London. The show’s soundtrack will be composed by Ludwig Göransson, who scored Black Panther, Venom and Creed II. Göransson’s Black Panther score won him a Grammy on Feb. 10 and an Oscar on Feb. 25.”In these next months I hope to honor the tradition of Star Wars’ musical landscape while propelling The Mandalorian into new and unchartered territory,” he said in a statement posted to StarWars.com. “And I will try to remember that there is no try.”On Dec. 25, Favreau gave fans a Christmas present in the form of a shot featuring a droid resembling bounty hunter IG-88 against a green screen — presumably this is Taika Waititi’s IG-11. You might remember IG-88 as one of the bounty hunters seen on Darth Vader’s Super Star Destroyer in The Empire Strikes Back as the Sith Lord tasked them with tracking down the Millennium Falcon.

It’s gold,” she told Slashfilm in 2015. “And it’s something we’re spending a lot of time looking at, pouring through, discussing, and we may very well develop those things further. We definitely want to.” In that same interview, Kennedy noted that Lucasfilm read through the material Lucas developed for canceled TV show Star Wars: Underworld, which was announced in 2005 and canned in 2010 due to budget constraints. It was to be set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and would have tied into 1313. This story first published on Nov. 14, 2018, and will be updated regularly.center_img “Bounty hunting is a complicated profession … don’t you agree?” Long-awaited live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian is coming to the Disney Plus streaming service on Nov. 12, and the name has deep roots in the franchise’s history, with links to the armor worn by bounty hunter Boba Fett.Disney unveiled a new poster during D23.  Disney/Lucasfilm We got a trailer at Disney’s biannual D23 convention, this weekend. The company whet our appetites Friday by tweeting a new poster showing the Mandalorian walking away from his ship, with a binary sunset and some Sandcrawlers in the background, on a planet that looks a lot like Tatooine.Pedro Pascal (best known for playing Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones) will take on the title role: a lone Mandalorian gunfighter operating in the outer reaches of the galaxy. Pascal will be joined by Giancarlo Esposito (who played Gus Fring in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul); MMA fighter and Deadpool actress Gina Carano; Emily Swallow from Supernatural; Carl Weathers of Rocky and Predator fame; Down and Out in Beverly Hills actor Nick Nolte; Omid Abtahi from American Gods; Taika Waititi from Thor: Ragnarok; Agents of SHIELD’s Ming-Na Wen; and Werner Herzog (who directed and narrated Grizzly Man).The show will debut when Disney Plus launches on Nov. 12, and episodes will drop drop weekly — so you’ll have to wait if you want to binge. Executive Producer Jon Favreau said he’s already writing season 2. Only a few characters have been revealed so far, including Carano’s ex-rebel shock trooper Cara Dune, Weathers’ Greef Carga and Waititi’s assassin droid IG-11. Wen’s casting announcement came early during D23.'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' Photocall In MadridPedro Pascal will play the show’s lead role.

Some might say he has questionable moral character.”The Mandalorian will work closely with Carga.the-mandalorian-carl-weathersCarl Weathers plays Greef Carga. Lucasfilm Carga is “kinda the head of this guild of bounty hunters,” Weathers revealed at Star Wars Celebration. “The Mando is a guy who he figures can get the job done.”The Celebration Chicago panel also revealed that Esposito plays an Imperial officer (or possibly a former Imperial, given the show’s timeframe), Herzog’s character is some sort of crime boss, and Abtahi’s is a doctor.The Star Wars underworld is a very rich storytelling environment, according to Favreau. He wanted to get back to the tone of the old western and samurai films that inspired George Lucas, and says the show will be Star Wars meets Mad Max.  the-mandalorian-gina-caranoGina Carano is playing Cara Dune.

Lucasfilm The Mandalorian is likely to be the streaming service’s biggest draw, even if it’s 20 years too late for some of us. We’ll keep this guide updated with all the juicy details for you to gobble up like a hungry sarlacc.  What else do we know?Lucasfilm has steadily drip-fed information about the show since Favreau was announced as its writer and executive producer. It’s not his first Star Wars rodeo. He voiced Pre Vizsla — the violent leader of a Mandalorian splinter group — in The Clone Wars and played pilot Rio Durant in Solo: A Star Wars Story. bobafett2.jpgBoba Fett wears Mandalorian armor, but isn’t a true Mandalorian. Lucasfilm In summer 2018, Favreau revealed that the show will be set seven years after Return of the Jedi (so six years after the Empire’s final defeat at the Battle of Jakku and 23 years before The Force Awakens) and will focus on all-new characters. We also have a New York Times report that its 10 episodes will enjoy a $100 million budget, which was the rumored cost of Westworld’s first season. screenshot-2019-08-24-at-16-36-53Giancarlo Esposito, best known for playing the big bad of Breaking Bad, seems to be playing an Imperial officer in the show. Disney/Lucasfilm/Screenshot by Sean Keane/CNET Directors for some of the episodes: Dave Filoni — The Clone Wars and Rebels creator will direct the first episode. Taika Waititi — Directed Thor: Ragnarok. Bryce Dallas Howard — Better known for her acting but has directed shorts like Soulmates. Rick Famuyiwa — Directed Dope. Deborah Chow — Directed Jessica Jones and Better Call Saul. Favreau, Filoni, Colin Wilson and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy will be the executive producers. Karen Gilchrist will be co-executive producer. Since announcing the show’s name, Favreau has dropped a few hints and updates on Instagram. He revealed a rifle that’ll be familiar to fans of the infamously bad Star Wars Holiday Special where Boba Fett made his first appearance in 1978. 4 Now playing: Watch this: Comments Tags TV and Movies Culture The Favreau droid parade continued in the Jan. 29 shot of R5-D4, an astromech that played a small but pivotal role in A New Hope. You might remember him as the droid Uncle Owen initially agreed to buy from the Jawas, until a bad motivator resulted in Owen taking R2-D2 instead. We got a hint about the show’s tone on Feb. 4, when director Taika Waititi mentioned after a Television Critics Association panel that it’ll be similar to the original trilogy and that he had to curb the signature comedic instincts he used in Thor: Ragnarok as he directed an episode of the show.Award Ceremony Red Carpet Arrivals - 75th Venice Film FestivalTaika Waititi decided he couldn’t “put too many jokes” into the episode of The Mandalorian he directed. Stefania D’Alessandro/WireImage “Star Wars, you know, is just very different to the Marvel style,” he said. “They know that whatever was set up in the tone of the first films really should be kind of adhered to and that’s what the fans like and you can’t really disrespect it, I guess, is a nice way of saying it. Can’t have too many jokes, but there’s a little bit. Definitely my tone is in there, with the dialogue and stuff like that.”He also mentioned working on “scenes with like 50 or 60” Stormtroopers.On Feb. 15, (the same day Episode 9 finished its shoot) crew members reportedly posted on social media that the first season of The Mandalorian had wrapped production. The posts were apparently deleted, but it was the first indication that we’ve had that the show wasn’t just a limited series.What’s a Mandalorian?They’re humans from the Outer Rim world of Mandalore, its moon Concordia and the planet Kalevala, whose story was largely told in The Clone Wars and Rebels. unnamedJango Fett claimed to be from the Mandalorian world of Concord Dawn. Dark Horse Comics/Lucasfilm Their world went through major political upheaval during the Clone Wars and early days of the Galactic Empire’s rule, but many of the clans united under the rule of Bo-Katan Kryze after she took control of the Darksaber. The black-bladed weapon was created more than 1,000 years earlier by Tarre Vizsla (the first Mandalorian to join the Jedi Order) and became a symbol of leadership. You probably associate bounty hunters Boba Fett and Jango Fett with the term because they wear the cool armor, but they aren’t true Mandalorians. Jango once claimed to be from Concord Dawn, a Mandalorian world, but the government considered him (and by extension, his cloned son Boba) to be pretenders. Who could be wearing the armor in this new show? unnamedOne of the side stories in the Aftermath trilogy could hint at the identity of a character in the show. Penguin Random House Fans have been clamoring for Boba’s return to the Star Wars galaxy despite his fall into the maw of a hungry sarlacc in Return of the Jedi, but there’s been no indication that will happen. Kennedy recently confirmed that his much-rumored solo movie is100 percent dead,” but that could pave the way for his dramatic return in The Mandalorian. Fans of the Legends material (developed in novels, comics and games prior to 2014) will recall that Boba escaped the sarlacc in that continuity and went on to become the leader of Mandalore in a very different post-Return of the Jedi galaxy. In Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy of novels, Mandalorian armor that’s heavily implied to be Boba’s is recovered from the pit and worn by former slave Cobb Vanth. Using the armor as a symbol of power, he becomes sheriff of Freetown (a settlement on Tatooine) and offers sanctuary to anyone willing to battle the world’s crime syndicates. The character we’ve seen could be Cobb — the area in the first official Mandalorian photo certainly looks like it could be Tatooine — but his armor is much better shape than Boba’s would be; the helmet should be dented and the whole set should show signs of acid damage from its time in the sarlacc. He could’ve cleaned it up, but surely acid marks don’t come out that easily. Which characters are likely to appear? We probably won’t see any major characters from the movies, since the actors who play the main human characters aren’t the right ages and they most likely won’t be explored in-depth until after Episode 9 is released on Dec. 20, 2019. spoilers-starwarsHowever, we might see characters from the CGI animated series. Sabine Wren from Rebels is a Mandalorian. That show was set before A New Hope, but it ended with a flash-forward to a point after Return of the Jedi. We saw Sabine embarking on a quest with former Jedi Ahsoka Tano to find the lost Ezra Bridger. reb-ia-19751Sabine Wren (seen wielding the Darksaber) could appear in the show. Lucasfilm That’s highly speculative, but it’d be amazing to see Sabine (and maybe Ahsoka) in live action for the first time. It’s unlikely to be the show’s main narrative thrust since it’d demand that viewers have a certain level of foreknowledge prior to starting The Mandalorian. One of the announced cast members, Omid Abtahi, was the voice actor for Mandalorian cadet Amis in two episodes of The Clone Wars, as noted by the Ion Cannon podcast. Given that the Celebration Chicago panel revealed he’s playing a doctor, it seems unlikely that he’s bringing his role from the CGI animated show into live action (which would be a cool link between the Mandalorians of the prequel era and the time following Return of the Jedi). What other stories could they draw from? Star Wars 1313 was a video game that got shelved when Disney shut down all projects at LucasArts — Lucasfilm’s game development group — in 2013. We saw an impressive demo for Uncharted-style adventure before that, featuring actor Wilson Bethel (who recently hit the target in Daredevil season 3). last_img read more

first_imgBy J. K. Schmid, AFRO Baltimore StaffFuneral services have been announced for Jacquelyn Smith.The 54-year-old Harford County woman was stabbed in an alleged robbery shortly after midnight, Saturday, December 1.Jacquelyn Smith, 54, (here with her husband Keith Smith), a resident of Harford County, was stabbed to death in Baltimore on Dec. 1 during an alleged robbery attempt. (Twitter Photo)Smith, an electrical engineer and resident of Aberdeen, had been out dancing with her husband, Keith Smith, at Madison Street American Legion, Friday evening.“We danced a little bit,” Keith Smith told CBS. “Man, it was just a beautiful night.”Driving home, Smith rolled down her car window for a panhandler at the Johnston Square intersection of Valley and East Chase Streets.Immediately after an exchange with the panhandler, a man approached the car, stole Smith’s necklace and her purse, and stabbed her during the attack.Smith died of her injuries at Johns Hopkins Hospital two hours later.“This story struck my heart,” Oprah Winfrey said on her Twitter page. “I’ve done this a 1k times. But will think twice before ever doing again. To J.S. family I hope her death gets people ‘woke’ to change!”Police are looking for an approximately 20-year-old Black woman and an approximately 30-year-old Black man with a goatee. The male suspect was last seen wearing a hoodie.“The information we have is the information we have,” Interim Baltimore Police Commissioner Gary Tuggle told reporters. “Until we can disprove that, then that’s what we’re gonna go with. But we’re gonna leave no stone unturned when it comes to this case.”Police ask anyone with information is asked to call homicide detectives at (410) 396-2100.Smith is the 284th Baltimore murder this year.The public memorial is scheduled to take place Friday at 6 p.m. at Helping Hands Ministries, Keith Smith’s ministry, 3237 Level Road in Churchville.Smith’s final rest will come in her home state of Rhode Island.last_img read more

DCEU Announcement New Poster Green Lantern and New Justice League Trailer

0 Comments

first_img UPDATE: The cast of Justice League took the stage during Warner Bros. panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con, and we now have an idea of what’s next for the DC Extended Universe. The first big announcement: Aquaman. Attendees got their first look at footage from Jason Momoa’s upcoming solo flick. Comic Book reports that the footage showed fishermen losing their poles at sea before a fleet of vessels races past them, followed by a finned creature. Underwater, attendees saw a mass of submarines shaped like manta rays, a shark on a leash, and finally, Aquaman standing in a sunken ship, attacking an unseen assailant with a sword. If they pull this off for the entire movie, Aquaman is going to look incredible.After giving the audience a glimpse of Aquaman, it was time for Justice League. They debuted a new trailer, which is now available for everyone to watch. It’s probably the best we’ve seen from this movie so far. Did you want more scenes of Wonder Woman kicking ass? You got it.The rest of the League sees plenty of action too, and it all looks pretty spectacular. The Flash is clearly the comic relief of the group, which suits the character well. I just hope that whole nervous and scared act doesn’t persist through the entire movie. The Flash is more than a shy nerd. He’s always been funny, but he’s also eternally self-sacrificing and noble. I hope that aspect makes it into the movie.Then there’s that bit right at the end, with Alfred talking to a mysterious intruder. The trailer frustratingly doesn’t even hint at the person’s identity. Could it be Superman? The rest of the trailer is noticeably Clark-less, so that’s a possibility. Or, who knows? It could be the seventh League member teased by the movie’s old tagline. It could even be Green Lantern. (Edit: looking closer now, there is a green tint reflected in Alfred’s glasses. I think the Green Lantern is in this movie!) We’ll have to wait until November to find out for sure. Whoever it is, even though we pretty much know Superman is going to be in the movie, the actors still aren’t allowed to say anything. During the Q&A, Momoa told a young child who asked about the Man of Steel that Superman was dead. Gadot was a bit more giving in her response.“We can’t say much, but if you’re a big fan of Superman you’re going to love Justice League,” she said. That clears things up.Before the trailer, Ben Affleck commented on the rumors of his impending exit, flatly denying them. He assured the audience that he’s still committed to playing the character and working with Matt Reeves on The Batman. “Let me be very clear, I am the luckiest guy in the world. Batman is the coolest fucking part in any universe. I am so thrilled to do it. It is fucking amazing,” he said, according to Deadline. “After two films, Kevin Tsujihara, Sue Kroll and Toby Emmerich have said, we want you to be our Batman. I would be an ape on the ground for Matt Reeves. It’s a great time in the DC universe, and you can see why I am so excited to play Batman.”At least for now, no matter what somebody’s source said, it appears Ben Affleck as Batman is here to stay.As for where the rumor might have started, well the answer to that might be in the title of the upcoming Flash movie. It’s called Flashpoint. If you read the comics or watch the CW show, that name means something to you. “Flashpoint” is the timeline created when Barry runs back in time to prevent his mother’s murder. He really messes up the DC timeline doing that too. In the CW show, it lasts for one episode, has few major consequences and is generally underwhelming. In the comics, everything changes. The most significant change being that Bruce Wayne dies in the alley instead of his parents. As a result, Thomas Wayne becomes Batman, and Martha Wayne becomes the Joker.We don’t know if the movie will take things that far, but that could explain why Warner Bros. might be preparing for a movie where Affleck doesn’t play Batman. His father (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice) would don the cowl instead.Original article continues below.Warner Bros. Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con is one of the most anticipated panels of the show. Mostly because we have no idea what they’re going to show. Well OK, Justice League is a given. With that movie coming out in November of this year, they almost have to show some new footage from it. But what will be in that footage, and what they’ll unveil next, remains a mystery. Ahead of the panel, Warner Bros. teased fans by unveiling a new poster for the upcoming superhero team-up movie. That’s a pretty cool poster, though someone is missing from it. It’s a cool touch to have each word in the movie’s new tagline contain a symbol of one of the movie’s major heroes. At least they aren’t pretending Superman isn’t in the movie anymore. “You can’t save the world alone” is a much better selling point than the film’s previous “Unite the seven.” Also, it’s bright and colorful and heroic, which we haven’t seen much of from the DCEU outside of Wonder Woman. Is it possible that that movie’s success made Warner Bros. realize what audiences want out of superhero movies? That we like it when they have colors other than grey and brown? We’ll have to wait and see what happens when the cast unites later today.What other surprises does the DCEU have in store for today? Aquaman actor Jason Momoa may have dropped a pretty big clue on his Instagram. It’s another image of the Justice League, but there’s been an addition. See if you can spot it. Wait, what’s Green Lantern doing here? Could he be in the movie as well? The studio has said in the past not to expect any Green Lantern until at least Justice League 2., but maybe that’s changed. Maybe they’ve cast and shot scenes with a new Green Lantern all a secret. That would be a pretty amazing feat. Also, that would explain what the movie’s earlier slogan meant. “Unite the Seven” didn’t make a ton of sense when there were only six announced heroes. DCOn the other hand, all these characters are rendered in CGI. This could just be a new logo for the DCEU, or even an animated Justice League movie. But then why would Momoa brag about knowing things we don’t when he posted the image?Having the Green Lantern, any Green Lantern, make an appearance would be a pretty amazing reveal. That character deserves a fair shake on the big screen after what happened back in 2011. We’ll find out for sure soon enough. The panel begins at 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Japanese scientists explore electric roads for EVs

0 Comments

first_imgA schematic of the proposed power transfer system. This system transmits electric power thorough a capacitor composed of a steel belt and a metal plate attached to the road, and the power feed in differential mode. More information: www.tut.ac.jp/english/newslett … overtures/index.html (PhysOrg.com) — Masahiro Hanazawa of Toyota Central R&D Labs and Takashi Ohira from Toyohashi University are working on a solution for avoiding battery recharge headaches in powering electric cars. They are working on a prototype of electric cars that are powered by the road itself–electric roads for electric cars. While the idea of cars powered from the ground is not new, the system that they propose is an interesting way to power electric cars as the cars travel along the road through steel belts placed inside tires and a metal plate in the road. Improving Plug-In Electric Cars © 2011 PhysOrg.com This is how the Toyohashi University newsletter report describes their system: “The source of energy from power lines is up-converted into radio frequency (RF) by high-speed inverters implanted along tracks in the road. The RF voltage is applied to a balanced metal track embedded under the surface of the road. The EV picks up the RF voltage via electrical capacitance between the metal and a steel belt installed inside of the tires of the EV.”In their experiments, the researchers put small metal plates on the floor and inside a tire, and positioned another metal plate above the tire. They measured the electrical impedance between the two plates. The team presented their work in May at the International Microwave Workshop Series on Innovative Wireless Power Transmission in Kyoto, Japan. While their tests involved low voltages, the researchers believe energy transfer from the road to a running automobile is feasible. With enough power the system could run typical passenger cars, says Ohira.Their system would require smaller battery packs, rather than heavier packs, to get back and forth from electrified highways, which is viewed as a benefit as well.

One concern is how much danger to the public might their system impose, for example, in someone stepping on an electrified metal strip. Another question being voiced is cost and infrastructure, considering the expanses of roads that would be dug up to accommodate the system.An effort to explore the powering of EVs from the ground up was also reported earlier this year in Business Spectator Researchers at the Energy Dynamics Laboratory at Utah State University, said the report, were working on a solution where EVs could pick up small amounts of electricity as they drive over charging pads buried under the asphalt that are connected to the electrical grid. The proposed model and measurement model. As a the measurement model a metallic board were arranged above and below the tire, and the complex impedance was measured. Pieces of styrene foam of different thickness were placed between the upper surface of the tire and metallic plate. The measurement frequency was from 10 kHz to 10 MHz.

Check it Out Reasons to do a People Search on Yourself

0 Comments

first_imgYou may keep up with your bills and avoid criminal behavior. When you try to be a good community member, it is easy to assume that your background check is clean. Public records and credit companies can be wrong, however. Many people find out something is wrong on their background check when they try to rent home, get a loan, or apply for a job. False information can find its way onto your report at times. It is pertinent to check your information annually for discrepancies, as some can take a long time to remedy. Do the research on yourself before someone else does.Getting StartedThe best way to find out what is available to others is to conduct a search just like a business or landlord would. Start with a basic people search to see what pops up. You should first be presented with simple identifying information such as a full name and address. You can should also be able to see previous addresses and family or people you once lived with. If you see a lot of information that does not match up, you may have fallen prey to fraud. It is also possible that there is a simply mix up with someone who shares your name. When employers are ready to hire, they often try to verify information through this type of search. Make sure your public records are accurate.Things to Look out forWhen you are viewing your public records and background check, be aware of changes that do not reflect your actual situation. There may be a name or address change that do not belong on your record. If you see debt, credit cards, or loans that are not familiar to you, it important to begin and identity theft investigation. Your reputation can be tarnished by someone that is pretending to be you.PreparationYou may be checking your own records in preparation for a large purchase. This can be incredibly helpful, as you then know what to expect. If you know there are some discrepancies on your criminal or financial record, take action to clean things up. Often, the best thing you can do is show consistency going forward. You can rent a home to show payment regularity before applying for a mortgage, for example. A secured credit card can also be used to help build a good credit history, as well. Criminal history cannot be erased, however, you can show years of lawful behavior after an incident.You can be a step ahead when you keep an eye on your own public records and credit. Even basic information needs to be correct on your public records. Employers may try to verify your address, phone number, and references. Sit down with your computer and complete a proper people search on yourself when preparing for a job interview, a personal loan, or a major purchase. You can rest easy knowing that everything is recorded properly, or take steps to remedy mistakes.last_img read more

Artificial Intelligence | July 03, 2019 VIDEO: Artificial Intelligence May Assist in Pediatric Imaging Sudhen Desai, M.D., FSIR, interventional radiologist at Texas Children’s Hospital, editor of IR Quarterly for the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and on the Board of Directors for the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs, explained how artificial intelligence (AI) can assist in pediatric imaging and the pitfalls of training AI systems. He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

first_imgGrowing up in the St. Louis area, Stille went to games with his father when the now-Arizona Cardinals were located in St. Louis. He remembers those days vividly, mentioning his deceased father who he knows wishes could be in Canton with him for Warner’s induction.“We went to every home game together both when they were the Cardinals and then the Rams,” Stille said. “I have a jersey that he gave me that I’m waiting to get signed by (Kurt).”Beck and Stille make their way around the Hall of Fame grounds with friends and family, both eager to meet their hero and take in the scene when Warner addresses the Canton crowd on Saturday.Before then, the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys will commence the week’s festivities Thursday night at the Hall of Fame game in the newly renovated Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.On Friday, the day will begin on the steps outside the front entrance of the Hall of Fame as more than 120 Hall of Famers will pose for a group photo with this year’s inductees. In the evening, each inductee will receive their coveted gold jacket at the Enshrinees’ Gold Jacket Dinner.Downtown Canton will provide the backdrop for Saturday morning’s annual parade featuring the Class of 2017 and all of the returning Hall of Famers. The week’s festivities will be highlighted by the Enshrinement Ceremony Saturday night at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. Former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is among the seven inductees who will take the stage this weekend and join pro football’s most iconic group.Carl Beck, a long-time fan of Warner from Daytona, Fla., walked through the Hall of Fame museum wearing a Warner Pro Bowl jersey. In his right arm, a Pro Football Hall of Fame replica helmet is awaiting the prized signature of the quarterback Beck has followed since the player’s days in the Arena Football League.“I really believe (Warner) should go down as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game,” Beck said.It’s high praise for a quarterback who began his career in the Arena Football League and NFL Europe and didn’t make his NFL debut until the age of 28.But, Beck didn’t just fall in love with the two-time MVP and Super Bowl champion because of his abilities on the field. He will most remember him for his character.“The type of man that he is has so much to do with why I was first drawn to him,” he said. “His story, how he made it to the NFL, it’s all why I think he’s one of the best men to play football.”Another fan, Jim Stille, stands out in the crowd wearing Warner’s No. 13 jersey from his days with the St. Louis Rams. He’s carrying around a folder full of old newspaper clippings from Warner’s time in St. Louis, most from the infamous 1999 season in which he led the “Greatest Show on Turf” to a Super Bowl victory. Top Stories CANTON, Ohio — For four days, often in early August, the city of Canton welcomes football fans from all over the country to its most illustrious event of the year.As Enshrinement Week festivities kick off, fans cram into shuttle buses by the bunches to take the short drive from Stark County Fairgrounds to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Many are wearing jerseys of players who will become this year’s newest inductees. Others don t-shirts and hats of the teams that are best represented this year in Canton. Warner, along with Morten Andersen, Terrell Davis, Kenny Easley, Jerry Jones, Jason Taylor and LaDainian Tomlinson will at last, be formally enshrined.Lastly, the Class of 2017 will be center stage one final time Sunday morning for a roundtable presentation to both the media and the public.For now, travelers to the Hall of Fame and fans of this year’s inductees are relishing Enshrinement Week.“There’s only one reason why I’m here,” Beck said. “To see (Kurt) receive his glory.” Jim Stille, long-time Kurt Warner fan displays a newspaper clipping from the Rams 1999 Super Bowl season.
