How Canadian should Canadian TV be

first_img Login/Register With: This article was originally published on Oct-10-16We figured Canadian Thanksgiving was a good day to reflect on some recent stories on where Canadian content is going. Hope you are enjoying the holiday and be thankful for quality Canadian content.A recent CRTC ruling reduced the number of points needed to acquire Certified Independent Production Funds from 8 points to 6 points (out of 10). Director and screenwriter are 2 points each with a single point going to each of the 2 main leads, director of photography, art director, music composer, and picture editor. Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Advertisement Advertisement The concern is that Canadian actors, directors, and screenwriters will get less of a chance to shine in Canadian productions. In a world of Orphan Black, Flashpoint, Rookie Blue, and Schitt’s Creek, the reduction seems unwarranted.CanCon has gone to extremes in the music world but there are great results from those policies. Plenty of American actors are happy and eager to star in Canadian films. Just ask Brie Larson, Joan Allen, and William H. Macy in Room.Orphan Black has greatly benefited from having Canadian actors, especially Tatiana Maslany, who just won an Emmy for her role on the show. Twitterlast_img read more

Football Team attitude all about winning for Ohio State

Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorAfter Saturday’s 24-20 win over unranked Northwestern, the No. 6 Ohio State Buckeyes remained in a favorable spot in the national rankings, just outside the playoff cutoff with a few top-tier matchups still on their calendar. Even with such a prime position and the chance to build momentum against No. 9 Nebraska at home this Saturday, some fans are still worrying about the status of the team.Following the victory over the Wildcats, OSU coach Urban Meyer was pleased with the way his team was able to overcome adversity and stick together when things got tough. Still, he called things a “work in progress,” and admitted the team has not been firing on all cylinders as of late.But with eight games under their belt, the mantra remains the same. This team is young and is still learning, but still has a shot to reach the playoffs. Redshirt junior guard Billy Price said after the game that the ultimate goal is still reachable for the team, but OSU cannot look too far ahead. For Price, the methodical approach is the best approach.“Week by week,” he said.The team has remained adamant that now is not the time to panic, and that they are still playing well. Although the team beat an unranked Big Ten opponent by only four points, the offense showed some improvement, while the defense made the plays it had to in crunch time.OSU allowed the Big Ten’s leading rusher Justin Jackson to gain just 76 yards, his second lowest mark of the season. His lowest total came on a 12 carry, 42-yard effort against Illinois State, but Jackson was limited in that contest after a leg injury in the third quarter.Close games might seem to be grounds for stress from fans, but Meyer is convinced these kind of games will help the team down the road.“Ages your coach, (but) builds character for your players,” he said.Some might find the team attitude as stubborn or prideful, but the Buckeyes have admitted the team must learn to play better as the season progresses. Defense, or lack there of in key moments, was a large part to the loss against Penn State.Against Northwestern, the defense allowed some sizable chunk plays, including a 35-yard toss to Wildcats’ senior wide receiver Austin Carr, who smoked the Buckeyes’ secondary for 158 yards on Saturday. The plays that were memorable following the hard fought win were not the ones that gave up yards, rather than the ones that helped lead the Buckeyes to victory.Even with the impenetrable veil of the defense now gone following a string of mediocre performances, OSU was able to get back on track on Saturday. Junior middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan said he is feeling good after a tough home win, and still feels the team is doing what it can at the end of the day.“That’s one of our things that we come in and do,” he said. “Strive to be the best we can be each week, and at the end of the season we’re playing our best ball. (We’re) giving up some things that (are) schemed up against us that we just have to work through throughout the game to come out the other end with a W and make stops when we need to in the redzone.”With all the outside voices around questioning the heart and the ability of the team, it would be easy for the Buckeyes to fold under the pressure and start dropping games on a frequent basis. But Meyer and the team have remained confident in the ability of the players to keep grinding and striving for the end season goals they set to start the season.Redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett is especially advocating for positive thoughts following a win. So much in fact, he even took a shot at the media members on Monday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center for their harsh take on the team.“It’s almost like last year,” Barrett said. “Last year we were winning games but it was almost … we came to talk to y’all and it was like we lost. Y’all remember that?”Regardless of the outside noise surrounding them, OSU remains proud of the culture and effort of itself. Arguably the most important matchup looms just around the corner against No. 9 Nebraska in primetime, with playoff implications on the line.Even with the outside criticism, Meyer remains on his one-track mind.“We’re just going to go try to find a way to beat Nebraska,” he said. read more

The NBA Haters Ball

7Roy HibbertDEN14.24.61.118.3 LEAST DEFENSIVE PLAYERAndrew Wiggins, Minnesota TimberwolvesThanks to a draft-day trade, Tom Thibodeau is reunited with defensive stopper Jimmy Butler, and not a moment too soon. Butler will be joining forces with the single most catastrophic defender in the league: Andrew Wiggins.Using the NBA’s player-tracking data to look at shots defended and how those shots turned out,1These values are based on shot location, defender location and other variables. The “expected” value is based on what a shooter would make against an average defender given shot distance and the time on the shot clock, and the net value displayed is the difference between that expectation and the result that the defender allowed. we can see who’s making a positive impact, who’s making a negative impact, and who’s making the most impact. WORST LINEUPLos Angeles Lakers’ youth On the one hand, it’s frustrating that the Lakers have to sell off their best young players in order to get out from under contracts that were bad news from the moment they were signed. On the other hand, hoo boy, those young players really, really didn’t play well when they were all on the court together.D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram and Larry Nance, Jr. played 108 minutes across 20 games this season — not a huge sample, but not quite nothing, either. By pure net rating, they were the second worst lineup in the league (-28.3 points per 100 possessions), trailing an especially grim configuration of Sacramento Kings. But it’s not so much the margin that was demoralizing about the group as it was the humiliating way in which it was run up.Out of 103 non-free-throw scoring plays against this Lakers’ lineup, 24 were dunks. (For comparison’s sake, the league-average team would figure to allow 10.3 dunks for every 103 buckets.) Not mere layups, not simple wide-open shots — dunks! A quarter of all points from the floor scored on the Lakers’ Team Of The Future were on dunks, as though the goal of the defense was to corral the opposing team into the most efficient route possible on the way to the rim. MOST OVER-AMBITIOUS DUNKERMarquese Chriss, Phoenix SunsThe missed dunk is one of the more universal plays in basketball. In a split-second, it has a neat little narrative arc: the audacity to leap in defiance of gravity and the instant comeuppance. Some players experience this more than others. Marquese Chriss experiences it more than anyone.Chriss missed 26 dunks this season, four more than second-place DeAndre Jordan … on 146 fewer attempts. Chriss’s 79.8 shooting percentage on dunks is the worst mark Basketball Reference has on record for any player who tried at least 100 dunks in a season.Not all missed dunks are of equal difficulty, of course. Dwyane Wade getting stuffed by the bottom of the rim in a playoff game is not the same as Chriss blowing in-traffic NBA Jam dunks. But there’s a certain charm to Chriss’s misses, like he knows they aren’t “all worth two points” and he’s determined to collect the difference, even at the cost of the two points. Tonight at New York’s Pier 36, the NBA will host its first annual awards show, heaping praise on the best and most outstanding players of the season. We are here today to do the opposite. MOST OVER-AMBITIOUS SHOOTERMarcus Smart, Boston CelticsAt a certain point, you just have to admire the confidence.Marcus Smart was not the worst 3-point shooter in the league this season. But he was the worst 3-point shooter who routinely took a lot of threes. Smart took 4.2 3-pointers per game in 2016-17 and made 28.3 percent of them. Only two players in the 3-point era have taken four or more 3-pointers per game and shot a worse percentage than Smart did this season: Mookie Blaylock in 1997-98 and Latrell Sprewell in 1994-95. And it’s not like Smart was launching nothing but bad shots, either — 3.1 of his 3s per game came on spot-ups, which are usually high-quality looks. But Smart shot 31.2 percent on those.Smart contributes in other ways — mainly through being Point Guard Ben Wallace — and his shooting percentage did, briefly, see an uptick in the playoffs. That’s enough to make him useful, at least on a team that gets stomped by the Cavs. 1Jakob PoeltlTOR11.73.11.514.8 10Willie ReedMIA14.55.31.819.1 9Omer AsikNOP15.62.71.518.5 PLAYERTEAMMIN. PER GAMEPTS. PER GAMEOFFENSIVE REBOUNDSTOUCHES PER 36 MIN. 3Salah MejriDAL12.32.91.317.0 Possession by possession, there are a few defenders who are as bad as Wiggins. When Wiggins contests a shot, opponents have a 56.1 effective field goal percentage; when they are unguarded, they have a 56.4 eFG percentage. Fundamentally, getting a shot up against Andrew Wiggins is the same as getting an open shot.Wiggins’s deficiencies are too many to list quickly, but at root the issue seems to be basic effort. He barely jumps to contest shots, doesn’t run hard to close out, and gets lost watching the ball.But the truly destructive part of Wiggins’s defense is how much of it there was. In the way that defenders like Draymond Green or an in-his-prime Tony Allen seem to be in all places at all times, challenging seemingly every shot on the floor, Wiggins is omnipresent in his awfulness. He defended the 10th most shots in the league, by far the most by a below-average defender. Most teams do their best to hide their weak defenders, but opponents seek Wiggins out like no other defender in the league. Unsurprisingly, the list of players who don’t see much of the ball fit a profile: big men who are on the floor for defense and rebounding, not scoring. Strictly speaking, Jakob Poeltl and Lucas Nogueira see the least of the ball on a per possession basis, which is probably to be expected on a team with DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry. But a little ways down the list is another name, and a bigger number: Tristan Thompson played 30 minutes per game for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but was passed the ball just 14.6 times per game and 17.5 times per 36 minutes.Thompson isn’t as offensively bereft as many of the other players on the list this season or in seasons past. He has good instincts in pick-and-roll and finds space off the ball (or at least, puts himself in positions where LeBron James can find him). But he also has by far the smallest offensive role on the team. Kevin Love, who has seen his role reduced drastically from his superstar days in Minnesota, got 37.8 touches per 36 minutes. James got 66.8; Irving got 67.2; even Iman Shumpert, who cannot dribble, pass or shoot, got 30.1. Richard Jefferson, who was drafted when Thompson was 10 years old, got 26.8.Like Marcus Smart, Thompson has other skills that are important to the Cavaliers. They trust him with important responsibilities. Just not with the basketball. 2Lucas NogueiraTOR19.04.41.416.7 4Noah VonlehPOR17.14.41.817.5 Source: nba.com LEAST OFFENSIVE PLAYERTristan Thompson, Cleveland CavaliersThe player to whom no one passes the basketball is a typically a well-earned title, and one held by the inimitable Bismack Biyombo for the last few years. This season, however, Biyombo’s offensive role has, erm, flourished. He averaged a robust six points per game for the Orlando Magic after posting the highest usage rate of his career, at 13.2. But with Bismack abdicating the throne, who is the least passed-to man in the league?Finding players to whom no one passes is easy thanks to the NBA’s player tracking data. Take the number of “front court touches” (that is, the number of times a player touches the ball on the offensive end of the floor) and subtract the number of offensive rebounds he collected, and you’ve got something close to the number of times he was passed the ball. 8Miles PlumleeCHA10.82.50.818.3 5Tristan ThompsonCLE30.08.13.717.5 6Ed DavisPOR17.24.32.118.0 WORST SINGLE GAMEJamal Crawford, Los Angeles ClippersIn a lot of ways, 36-year-old Jamal Crawford is miraculous. In his 17th season, Crawford played 26.3 minutes per game and averaged 12.3 points on 52.6 percent true shooting, just a hair under his career mark. But on the nights he doesn’t have it, he really doesn’t have it.On January 8, Crawford played the single worst game of the season by any NBA player. In a home win against the Miami Heat, Crawford put in 31 minutes and went 1-for-12 on 2-point shots (0-for-4 from three) while collecting one rebound, one assist and two turnovers. He came out of the game with a break-even plus-minus, though any success the Clippers had was mainly due to a great game from Chris Paul (19 points, 18 assists, 1 turnover) and Heat players Dion Waiters, Rodney McGruder, Wayne Ellington and Willie Reed going a combined 7-for-32. The players no one passed toNBA players with the fewest touches per 36 minutes, 2016-17 WORST USE OF TIMEOUTSLos Angeles ClippersFor the most part, teams know that defenses play better coming out of timeouts than offenses. There’s no cross-matching to worry about, and no early-shot-clock semi-transition rush job to stamp out. Every time an offense called a timeout in 2016-17, the ensuing play was worth about 3.5 points per 100 plays for the defense compared to typical halfcourt offense. So the offense generally needs to cram enough value into that time to make it an even proposition — advancing the ball late in the game, or subbing in shooters, or trying to take the air out of a run. For some teams that’s possible. For a team that digs as deep a hole as the Clippers, good luck.The Clippers got 10 points worse per 100 plays every time they called a timeout. This is confusing, because the Clippers had one of the best halfcourt offenses in the league, ranking fourth at 98.6 points per 100 plays. But after timeouts, that rate shrunk to 88.7. It’s not just a matter of inferior bench players coming in after the timeout, either: Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, both excellent halfcourt players, fall off significantly after timeouts. Paul’s typical halfcourt offense is good for 101.2 points per 100 plays; he falls to 87.7 after timeouts. Griffin’s falls from 96.6 to 84.7.After timeout stats tend to be noisy, and in 2015-16 the Clippers were one of the better teams in the league in those scenarios. But in 2016-17, no team lost more steam during breaks than the Clips. read more

Life as a bus trip

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram “I dream my painting and I paint my dream,” famous artist Van Gogh allegedly once said. When it comes to the young Greek photographer Stylianos Papardelas, one could paraphrase as I dream my world and I shot my dream. It is a fact: Greece is going through tough times, and people expect the inevitable without challenging it. Stylianos Papardelas is definitely not one of them. A former student of Information Systems at the University of Crete, he started as an amateur photographer in 2006 with his first DSLR camera. Soon he realised that photography was his calling, and got involved in the Hellenic Photographic Society of Crete. Then things moved fast for the young artist. Just six months later, he organised his first exhibition and has since participated in more than ten collective and individual exhibitions in Greece and abroad. His photo 4800 Above Sea Level, taken in the deserted landscape of Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, was rated by National Geographic as one of the best 10 travelling photos for 2012 amidst 13,000 candidates. His work has dotted featured stories in several media services, such as IRIN news, the award-winning humanitarian news service of the United Nations, and the Washington-based National Public Radio. “Photography gave me the freedom to be myself and create my own stories through my art,” says Papardelas. He is now based in Dublin, Ireland and works for the not-for-profit organization Barretstown as a photographer, but also as a moderator in life enhancing projects for seriously ill children. Co-founder of the digital media project The World of Ronah, Stylianos creates short documentary films and podcasts on travelling and street photography. The 25-year-old artist spends most of his time on the road, searching to capture the reality of a forgotten world. His photos, as diverse as the places he has visited, invite us on a daring trip to the unknown: to all those lives who were never given a name, but who exist and claim their rights in a changing world. From the cramped tin roof houses, patched with cardboard and soil in the steep slopes of the Rio favelas, to the male prostitutes of Constitucion in Buenos Aires that laugh loudly and woo the passers-by; from the dilapidated villages of northern Uganda where children dancing their war traumas away, to rural Asia, where barefoot men and women engage in the backbreaking work of the rice harvest – he’s captured them all. Some pictures delight us, like the Cambodian mother who peacefully breastfeeds her baby in her makeshift home, or the smiling faces of the Burmese migrant workers playing a soccer match in a rare moment of rest and joy. But other pictures tell us a story we don’t want to know: trafficked children in Pnom Penh whose lives are sealed, a broken doll on a dirty bed telling of an innocence forever stolen.For the young photographer, life is a road trip. He now has a very ambitious plan: to travel by local bus throughout South and Central Asia, covering 15,000 km from Myanmar to Turkey. Like life, Stylianos invites us on this perilous journey to discover a colourful world of hope and joy, but also of tears and uncertainty.

Experts share insights on Anzacs in Greece

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A symposium in honour of the 70th anniversary of the Greek and Crete campaigns in WWII will be held in Sydney next Thursday. Convened by author Dr Maria Hill, five speakers will join Dr Hill at the State Parliament of NSW Theatrette for a day-long program of presentations exploring aspects of Australia’s wartime relationship with Greece and its repercussions. Speakers include Dr Ian Frazer – author of On the run – Anzac Escape and Evasion in Enemy-occupied Crete – who will be reporting on his latest exclusive research into the story of the hundreds of Anzac troops who evaded capture in Crete after the surrender in June 1941.Archaeologist Dr Michael Bendon will give a presentation on his identification of two landing craft wrecks at Phalasarna in western Crete used in the evacuation from the Greek mainland in 1941, and which met their fate during the last days of the Battle of Crete. Completing the symposium’s Battle of Crete trilogy, Dr Brian Taaffe will talk about his book The Gate Keepers of Galatas – the story of the extraordinary achievements of the New Zealand Divisional Petrol Company’s drivers (of whom his father was a member) who, fighting alongside Cretan locals and Greek soldiers, kept an elite German paratroop regiment from taking the village of Galatas for six days before being overcome. Author and art historian Susanna De Vries will take the floor during the symposium to reflect on the extraordinary life and work of Joice Nan Kivell (1887-1982), who travelled from Sydney to Greece in 1922 to aid the 1,500,000 refugees fleeing Turkish persecution. Greece became home for Joice and her husband, Gallipoli veteran and writer Sidney Loch. The symposium’s architect Dr Maria Hill will be exploring the Australian relationship with the Greek people during the Greek campaign in WWII – the subject of her 2010 published book Diggers and Greeks. The symposium’s keynote speech “The Greek Civil War, the United Nations and Australia: an Untold History” will be delivered by Professor Joy Damousi, head of the School of Historical Studies at Melbourne University. Professor Damousi is an award-winning historian whose parents migrated from Florina in the 1950s. The free symposium sponsored by the NSW Government will take place from 9am to 5.30pm on Thursday December 6 at the State Parliament Theatrette, Macquarie Street, Sydney.

Trump Twitter Facebook Google are colluding to silence conservatives

first_imgPresident Donald Trump said “we have to do something” about social media companies.  Getty Images President Donald Trump is again alleging that social media companies are biased against conservatives.During a joint press conference with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday, Trump said “we have to do something” about social media companies discriminating against conservatives on their platforms. “Something is happening with those groups of folks that are running Facebook, Google and Twitter,” said Trump. “I do think we have to get to the bottom of it … It’s collusive and it’s very, very fair to say that we have to do something about it.”Trump’s comments came after he was asked whether he’d consider laws that made social media platforms liable for content posted on their sites and his support for a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter over allegations of “shadow banning” conservatives. “It’s different from what it used to be. Things are happening, names are taken off, people aren’t getting through,” said Trump. “It seems to be if they’re conservative, if they’re Republicans, if they’re in a certain group, there’s discrimination, big discrimination.”Neither the White House nor Facebook nor Google immediately responded to requests for comment. Twitter declined to comment. This isn’t Trump’s first time alleging that social media companies are silencing conservative voices on their platforms. In August, Trump took to Twitter to accuse social media companies of “totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices.” His tweets also came amid more general concerns among some conservatives about perceived bias on the part of social media and tech companies.On Tuesday, Facebook apologized to Trump’s social media director, Dan Scavino, for temporarily blocking some contents on his account on Monday, according to CNN Business. Facebook’s artificial intelligence system reportedly mistook Scavino for a bot.  Tags Share your voice 8 Comments Politics Internet Mobile Digital Media Facebook Googlelast_img read more

Volkswagen ID R is ready for its Nürburgring lap record attempt

first_imgVolkswagen on Wednesday revealed the latest iteration of its ID R all-electric racing car, which on Thursday will begin testing towards the company’s goal of setting a new lap record at the Nürburgring. The eventual goal is to beat the existing electric-car ‘Ring record of 6 minutes, 45.9 seconds, which was set by the Nio EP9 in 2017.The Volkswagen ID R already has some pretty serious lap times under its belt, having set a new Pikes Pike International Hill Climb record and an electric-car record at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. With Germany’s famed Nürburgring not only the international benchmark against which all modern cars are tested, as well as being in VW’s homeland, it’s no surprise the company has its eyes set on trouncing Nio’s Green Hell lap time. As at Pikes Peak, the ID R will be driven by racing driver Romain Dumas.Enlarge ImageA new wing, new brakes and other technical changes prepare the ID R for the Green Hell. Volkswagen The ID R has been modified significantly for use at the Nürburgring, starting with new electronics for charging and discharging the twin lithium-ion battery packs on the track. Whereas at Pikes Peak the ID R was able to extract about 20 percent of the power it needed through regenerative braking, at the Nordschleife VW said it predicts that figure will only be about 10 percent.The car’s aerodynamic elements have also been redesigned, with a new front spoiler and fully enclosed underbody designed for higher speeds. The new rear wing reduces the ID R’s total height by 8.7 inches compared to prior versions. Overall, the car has 33 percent less aerodynamic drag than the Pikes Peak version, yet VW still claims total downforce is “roughly twice as much” downforce as a Formula 1 car. A drag reduction system can temporarily lower drag by 20 percent.Volkswagen I.D. REnlarge ImageThe ID R as it appeared at Pikes Peak. Volkswagen Other changes include the installation of carbon-fiber brake discs, which VW says are not only lighter than the car’s prior ceramic discs but also lighter. All told, the ID R weighs “less than” 2,425 pounds, including the driver.As when it campaigned at Pikes Peak, the ID R will have plenty of power at its disposal. Its twin electric motors produce 670 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, directed to the road through Bridgestone Potenza race tires. VW claims the car will accelerate to 62 mph in just 2.25 seconds, with top speed estimated at 168 mph. Even more incredible is that around the ‘Ring, VW expects an average speed of more than 112 mph. 0 Tags The record-breaking Volkswagen I.D.

UNOs arrest stuns PM HT Imam

first_imgHT Imam. File PhotoPrime minister’s adviser HT Imam has claimed that the arrest of Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) for Barguna sadar upazila Gazi Tariq Salman over distortion of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s portrait has stunned prime minister Sheikh Hasina.The prime minister Sheikh Hasina’s political adviser made the claim in an interview with the BBC Bangla on Thursday night. The BBC Bangla has also come up with an article based on that interview in its online version.The BBC Bangla online quoted HT Imam as saying, “We all – all the officials at the Prime Minister’s Office – were astonished to see the arrest of the UNO. He who has filed the case [against the UNO] has done a very distasteful act.”According to HT Imam, he immediately showed the prime minister the picture of the arrest of the UNO and the prime minister became astonished by seeing the photo.HT Imam told the BBC Bangla that the prime minister has rather said the UNO has done a very good job by arranging the painting competition among the school children.“The portrait is in front of me. There has been no distortion in the portrait. The portrait rather deserves reward and this officer should be awarded,” prime minister was quoted as saying by Imam in BBC Bangla.Imam said prime minister Hasina condemned whatever is being done to the UNO centring the portrait.HT Imam held Barisal district’s deputy commissioner (DC) and assistant police super (ASP) responsible for the arrest of the UNO. “Maybe, we should take action against them,” he added.Ruling Bangladesh Awami League’s (AL) Barisal district religious affairs secretary and president of Barisal Lawyers’ Association Obaidullah Saju filed a Tk 5 crore deformation case last month against Tariq Salman after he printed the portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, painted by a child, on an invitation card.The case was readily accepted and he was arrested.last_img read more

N Zealand expels US diplomat

first_imgA US diplomat has been expelled from New Zealand after Washington refused to waive diplomatic immunity so police investigating a serious crime could question him, officials said.Details of the alleged crime have not been revealed but local media reported the diplomat left the South Pacific nation last week suffering a broken nose and black eye.Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully said he was “disappointed” at the US refusal to waive immunity and in response asked for the person’s withdrawal from New Zealand.”Officials in Wellington and our ambassador in Washington DC have clearly conveyed to the United States the expectation that foreign diplomats obey the law in New Zealand and are seen to face justice in New Zealand,” he said in a statement released to AFP Monday.Police said they were called to an incident in Lower Hutt, on Wellington’s outskirts, in the early hours of March 12, which “involved an individual from the US embassy in Wellington”.By the time they arrived the person had left the scene and no arrests were made.Attempts to further investigate hit a diplomatic brick wall.McCully said foreign affairs officials relayed a police request to waive immunity but their US counterparts refused.Local media named the diplomat as Colin White and said he left Wellington with his wife and children.TVNZ, which broke the story, reported that White was a technical attaché who had been working closely with New Zealand’s intelligence service, the GCSB.A spokeswoman for the US embassy said they were “communicating with New Zealand authorities” on the issue.”As a matter of policy, we do not comment on the specifics of matters under investigation,” she said in a statement.”We take seriously any suggestion that our staff have fallen short of the high standards of conduct expected of US government personnel.”McCully said the US had stated it always fully investigated all allegations involving its diplomatic staff.Diplomatic immunity, formalised in the 1961 Vienna Convention, means foreign envoys are protected from local law enforcement in the country to which they are posted.The most recent known case of it being invoked in New Zealand was in 2014, when Malaysian military attaché Mohammed Rizalman bin Ismail was accused of indecent assault.It was eventually revoked and Rizalman was sentenced to nine months’ home detention after being found guilty in a Wellington court.last_img read more

Stephen Byrnes animated Firefly trailer needs to become a reality

first_imgArtist Stephen Byrne may earn a living as a comic book artist (currently on Green Arrow), but he’s earned a lot of love, respect, and attention for the fan-art and independent comic he does in his off hours. Most recently, he’s won the hearts of Firefly fans everywhere (and likely made more than a few Browncoats cry) with his new animated trailer for an imaginary Firefly series.Byrne has been dubbed “God’s gift to fan art” and that’s true, but I think he’s a gift all the way around. He makes great comic book art, he creates fan art that spans multiple fandoms (Buffy, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Firefly, DC Comics, Harry Potter, and more), and he’s creating his own independent comic called Sidekick that takes on comic book tropes with keen insight. 1/2Stephen Byrne Sidekick This is simply wonderful. Browncoats consistently amaze me. https://t.co/sMRGh3mucV— Nathan Fillion (@NathanFillion) August 16, 2016While I’d love this to be a trailer for an actual animated series in development, it’s probably just a trailer and, honestly, that’s okay. As a Browncoat, I’ve learned that you enjoy what you have –– and you keep your eye on the horizon, just in case. <>center_img This Firefly trailer, as short as it may be, conveys so much of what the fans hoped they might see if Firefly hadn’t been cancelled and if certain events hadn’t occurred in the film Serenity (damn you, Joss); the Mal/Inara kiss, Zoe’s moment with a holographic Wash. But we also get glimpses of things we instantly connect to; Jayne and Vera, River kicking ass, maybe a hint of Book’s return?Nathan Fillion approves. That’s always good.

Happy Stalls to Get Everyone On the Same Page

first_imgStay on target Goats Can Comprehend Human Expressions, Prefer Happy People’Happy Suit’ Could Help Astronauts Beat Space Blues Happy! took last week off after leaving us with a pretty big reveal. Very Bad Santa turned out to be working for Blue, who in turn is working for a guy in a bug suit. They’re kidnapping children for… well, it’s still not entirely clear why they’re kidnapping children. All we know is it isn’t anything good. But even though we knew all that at the end of last week’s episode, neither Nick nor Meredith are caught up yet. That’s what this episode was all about. And boy did it take its sweet time getting there.Happy! isn’t a show you can often accuse of being slow. From episode one, it’s been a frenetic blast from one scene to the next. The action is fast and overwhelming, but still manages not to lose anyone. Overall, it’s been a fantastic show. With any series though, not every episode can be a winner. At some point, you’re going to run into one that has to get all its pieces in the right place, and can’t quite turn that into an hour of great television. That’s this episode. It spends its running time slowly getting both Nick and Meredith to the point where they find out something we knew two weeks ago. It’s an odd poorly paced episode for a series that has been nailing its pacing from the beginning.Lili Mirojnick (Photo via Syfy)We pick up with Nick running into Meredith in Very Bad Santa’s hideout, after finding the place empty and the kids gone. Meredith tries to convince Nick to work together to find his daughter, but he immediately suspects something up. He quickly figures out that Blue’s gotten to her, and knocks her out. Later, Smoothie finds her while he’s destroying evidence, taunts her while she’s unconscious and leaves her sleeping on her father’s grave. The most we learn from Meredith’s story is that Blue has at least some powerful people in the police department on the take. Specifically, two women from internal affairs who condescendingly tell Meredith to let the missing kid case go. It’s not a huge revelation, but it’s a nice, tense scene that’s welcome in an episode that doesn’t move the story much. Lili Mirojnick plays the pissed off, jaded detective well, and she gets a few good insults in.As for Nick, Happy convinces him to visit Amanda, which… doesn’t go well. This may not be the best episode, but there are a couple of scenes it pulls off very well. Like the one where Happy visits Hailey’s room, looking around at all her drawings and all the pieces of different toys that inspired Hailey to create him. All the while, Nick and Amanda are having a screaming fight. Man, who doesn’t remember that feeling when they were kids? Happy’s slow descent into disillusionment was handled well. It’s been funny watching this child’s character react to the drugs, sex and violence inherent in Nick’s life, but this is the first time the series has really explored the toll it’s taking on Happy. It happens subtly, in the background. First, you notice that Happy is a lot less funny in this episode than he normally is. Like his eternal optimism takes a little more effort to maintain than usual. Then, when some ax-wielding assassins attack Nick and Amanda, Happy begs Nick not to bring his violence into Hailey’s room. It’s actually heartbreaking. Even in one of its not-as-great episodes, this show can still pack a punch when it wants to.Medina Senghore, Christopher Meloni (Photo via Syfy)Amanda throws Nick out of the house, and Nick continues to convince Happy that the world is not as caring as he thinks it is. When the subway is delayed, he tells Happy to fly around and see how terrible people really are to each other when faced with a minor inconvenience. Nick then lays down on the subway tracks and nobody comes to help him. Happy, finally broken by the cruel world, disappears. Of course, Happy is immediately proven a little bit right about the world a moment too late. When Nick truly needs help getting off the subway tracks before a train runs him over, everyone stops acting like dirtbags to each other. They work together to pull Nick to safety. But still, Happy’s gone. Too bad too. The incident jogged Nick’s memory. He remembers turning down a job from Blue because he saw a clearly unstable individual in a Santa suit. He puts the pieces together and figures out what we’ve known all along. He has to see Blue. Too bad he may have to do it without Happy.Exactly what’s going on with the kids remains a mystery. Very Bad Santa takes them to a classroom, where Smoothie acts as a mean and terrifying teacher. Kind of. He doesn’t teach them anything. He plays them a recording telling them that their naughty, kills a mouse to intimidate Hailey and gives them all cake to fatten them up. Is this some Hansel and Gretel-style cannibalism stuff going on? It’s still a mystery. Hailey’s smart enough not to eat the cake though. Good move, Hailey.Bryce Lorenzo, Patrick Fischler (Photo via Syfy)The episode wasn’t bad; it just didn’t live up to what the series has given us so far. It had its moments, but it really felt like it was stalling until next week. Like it had too little to do with the time they were given. At least the fight scenes were good. Turns out you can really do some damage to a person with glass Christmas ornaments. Also, ax fights are so much fun to watch it makes you wonder why there aren’t more of them in pop culture. Even with its slow pace, this episode did some necessary work. Both Meredith and Nick know that the missing kids are tied to Blue, which should make for a great confrontation in the near future. And Amanda realizes that she can’t trust Meredith, which should send her back towards Nick. All that’s missing is Happy. But he’s the title character, so you know the show will bring him back somehow next week. Hopefully, the pace will have picked back up by then.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Asus Introduces 17inch ROG Scar II For Gamers

first_imgWhen it comes to gaming, particularly with displays, bigger is always better. That’s why Asus is supersizing its Scar line of notebooks to 17.3 inches with the ROG Strix Scar II (17-inch). Starting at $1,699, the Scar II will be available during the first half of September. We first heard of the 15.6-inch Scar II back at Computex and were impressed with both its design and specs and the 17-inch version looks like it’s going to follow suit.On the outside, the Scar II sports the same attention-grabbing two-tone CNC aluminum lid as the Zephyrus. However, unlike Asus’ flagship gaming laptop, the large glossy emblem glows in hypnotizing RGB color when the laptop’s on. My favorite thing about the Scar II is the badass interior design. Half-black, half-camouflage, the kevlar-coated laptop gave me the urge to jump on Battlefield or Call of Duty and frag until I couldn’t frag any more.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

The Scar II’s side bezels are only 0.28-inches thick, allowing Asus to squeeze a 17.3-inch, 1920 x 1080 panel into a 15.7-inch chassis. That means even more real estate to enjoy all the wanton destruction you’ll be dishing out. And in order to make sure that your games are running buttery smooth, the panel has a refresh rate of 144 Hertz with a 3-millisecond lag.  MORE: Best & Worst Gaming Laptop BrandsKeyboardThe Scar II stands out for its keyboard, particularly the WASD keys, which are clear so FPS players can quickly get down to the business of strafing and outmaneuvering their foes. Asus claims that the keys have 1.8 millimeters of travel, which should make for a comfortable typing experience. The RGB keyboard has four lighting zones and offers dedicated hot zones for on-the-fly macro switches.SpecsStarting at $1,699, the 17-inch Scar II offers an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor with 16GB of RAM and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU. Storage options for SSDs range between 128 – 512GB with a 1TB 7,200-rpm hard drive.Bottom LineThe 17-inch ROG Scar II takes what’s great about the 15-inch and supersizes it. I’m already of a fan of the design, but I’m reserving my final judgment until we get both versions of the Scar II.Best Asus LaptopsBest Gaming LaptopsBest PC Games by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GameKiller or Socializer – which character are you?Vikings: Free Online GameUndoKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoForbes.com12 House Renovation Mistakes, In PicturesForbes.comUndoAdvertisementlast_img read more

The pedCAT utilizes cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology to produce undistorted and unobstructed images of the foot and ankle region under true physiological weight-bearing conditions. “We are introducing this first-of-its-kind modality to podiatric surgeons and orthopedic foot and ankle specialists with tremendous excitement and anticipation,” said Arun Singh, CEO of CurveBeam. “[P]edCAT will give physicians immediate access to more precise and detailed views of foot conditions, and that will optimize their treatment planning for greater predictability of surgical outcomes.”Singh explained that the machine’s small size and speedy operation, with scan times estimated under a minute, make it ideal for in-office use. The patient’s foot and ankle are scanned in a natural weight-bearing position for a precise view of physiological weight-bearing effects. The scanner delivers 3-D volumetric data for improved diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment planning including:Preoperative planningDiagnosis, confirmation or ruling out fracturesEvaluating subluxations and dislocationsEvaluating arthritic jointsEarly detection of osteomyelitisFor more information: www.CurveBeam.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
