Instead, the calm around the training ground allows them to concentrate fully on the task in hand.“We don’t look at who is behind us or in front of us. It’s more only about us and that’s how we should do it always,” he said.“We learn from all these previous seasons. When you look against Newcastle it was quite a tough first half, there were chances but we couldn’t find the right spot to score.“Luckily enough I scored but again we had this winning mentality that kept us going, and the second half we played like a new game.” last_img read more

NETFLIX WANTS TO OPEN A MAJOR FILM AND TV STUDIO IN TORONTONETFLIX WANTS TO OPEN A MAJOR FILM AND TV STUDIO IN TORONTO

first_img Login/Register With: Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook One of the world’s leading entertainment brands is ramping up production in its quest to satisfy the insatiable beast that is your remote control—and Hollywood North could benefit big time.I mean, where better for Netflix to make a whole bunch of new films and TV shows than in Toronto? With its wealth of talent, tax credits and buildings that look like they could be American?The streaming content juggernaut is considering it, according to Toronto Mayor John Tory. So seriously, in fact, that the city is already working with local industry unions to bolster their labour forces in anticipation of future productions. Twittercenter_img Advertisement Toronto (Photo by Lisa de Jong) “I have a very high level of confidence, without betraying confidences that aren’t yet concrete, that they’re going to,” said Tory on Tuesday when asked if Netflix was setting up shop in Toronto.“They’ve been in active discussions with our industry, with me, about wanting to create one of their hubs here.”A great night at the 22nd annual Toronto Film Critics’ Association awards gala celebrating some of the best films this past year. pic.twitter.com/TgrzKjPr0E— John Tory (@JohnTory) January 9, 2019Tory, who was speaking at the Toronto Film Critics Association Awards gala, also said he’d met with representatives from Netflix in Los Angeles last March, to discuss the matter.“We’ve talked to them from here a number of times and they certainly know how much we would like to have them here,” said Tory to the Canadian Press. When asked if he knew when Netflix might create a production hub in Toronto he said no, but also that “If I knew I wouldn’t tell you.”Coy as the mayor wants to play it, an expansion into Toronto makes sense for Netflix.The American company has been producing more and more original content in recent years, much of it with viewership numbers to rival that of any major cable network. It took home five Golden Globe awards for its original content on Sunday alone, more than any other network or streaming service.Meanwhile, Toronto’s film and TV production industry is booming. Several new studios, including one owned by CBS Television, are slated to open here within the next few years and, on top of that, Netflix recently committed $500 million toward the creation and distribution of original productions in Canada.Currently, the company’s only main production facility is in Los Angeles, but it plans to build new hubs in Madrid and Albuquerque. Could Toronto be next?In the words of Tory himself, “fingers crossed.” Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgFormer France international Christophe Dugarry has heavily criticised  Neymar for his actions, while Paris Saint-Germain sealed the Ligue 1 titleThe club’s world record signing was absent, while PSG sealed the Ligue 1 title in impressive fashion by defeating last season’s winners AS Monaco 7-1 at the Parc Des Princes Stadium on Sunday.Neymar, who is currently recovering in Brazil from his fractured fifth metatarsal bone in his foot, instead, posted images of him playing a game of poker with his friends, that left Dugarry furious.“How could Neymar not be there with his teammates with the title at stake?” he asked on RMC Sport (via Marca).“They’ve given him the role of leader and he doesn’t even come to share in the win?“How is it possible that PSG can accept that? How can he look his teammates in the eye when he behaves that way?Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“He’s spitting on the club. I think it is outrageous. If he was at Barcelona, he would have returned with no problem.“If I was at PSG, I’d be very angry.”Dugarry, who was a member of the France squad that won the 1998 World Cup, believes that PSG will never win the Champions League with players like Neymar.“I can’t stand those players who are only worried about themselves because it is the collective which wins games,” said the former Bordeaux forward.“It is never individual players… and yet people think that PSG can win the Champions League with attitudes like that!”last_img read more

Investigating Baltimores Police Corruption and Investing in the CityInvestigating Baltimores Police Corruption and Investing in the City

first_imgBy J. K. Schmid, Special to the AFROA Baltimore rising star has been named to the Restore Trust in Policing Commission.The commission, a direct response to the flagrant and rampant corruption of the Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force, was established at the end of August.Alicia Wilson, is the senior vice president of Impact Investments and senior legal counsel of the Port Covington Development team. She is now also leading the Port Covington Impact Investment Team.Attorney Alicia Lynn Wilson is a member of the Restore Trust in Policing Commission. (Courtesy Photo)AFRO questions about her new roles and her part in the commission were answered via email through Plank Industries Public Relations Director Danielle Bennings.Wilson emphasized repeatedly that her obligation to the commission is separate from her obligation to Plank Industries and its subsidiaries.“I was involved in sitting on commissions and serving in this way well before I was ever associated with the Port Covington project,” Wilson wrote. “My work on this commission is separate from the work that I do on the Port Covington development. I am deeply committed to my city, its progress and working towards improving upon the things that are holding the city back from reaching its fullest potential.”Wilson, an East Baltimore native and Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School graduate, is an Associated Black Charities co-chair and a Center for Urban Families board member.“I am on the commission as a lawyer and a resident of the city of Baltimore. I offer multiple perspectives on issues that affect us all; as a person who grew up in this city, as someone who has been personally impacted by gun violence and as someone who has worked alongside law enforcement.”Wilson, a member on leave from Gordon Feinblatt, Labor and Employment Practice, “covers the spectrum of employment litigation. She handles all aspects of both state and federal claims involving race, age, disability and gender/sexual orientation discrimination, as well as sexual harassment, retaliatory discharge, and wage and hour issues. In addition, Alicia represents unions and management in collective bargaining and National Labor Relation Act matters,” according to her Gordon Feinblatt bio.“This commission allows me to bring to bear all of the perspectives that I bring to these issues. I have a deep grounding in law as well as a unique understanding of how it is to live on a day to day basis with the implications of the Baltimore Police Department, whether good or bad. When asked to serve on this commission, my thought was not how this would be in the interest of my employer, but how this was in the interest of my community.”Other members of the commission include Mitchel M. Gordon, a former Baltimore City police officer now workers compensation litigator for public safety employees, Sean Malone, a former attorney for the Baltimore City Police Department, and former Judge Alexander Williams, Jr.“I am excited to work with Judge Alexander Williams who has given so much to our judiciary and to our community, but I’m also excited to work with all the members of the commission and learn from them. I think it’s helpful to learn from the perspectives of others, and bring diverse thoughts to the table,” said when asked whom she is most excited to work with.While the Baltimore City Office of Civil Rights Civilian Review Board struggles with city solicitor Andre Davis to have its subpoenas honored, Wilson described how the state commission can get results.“The power to subpoena must be exercised with care, but it is an extremely powerful and useful means by which clarity and transparency can occur in a process,” Wilson wrote. “I think the subpoena power given to this commission is essential because you may not have people that are necessarily willing to participate in the investigation. In other cases you may not need it, but with something of this level of sensitivity you need the subpoena power to be successful.”At the time of Wilson’s reply, September 13, the commission had not yet met. A preliminary report is expected by the end of this year, followed by a full report at the end of 2019. Wilson does not know what her or the commission’s role will be when it comes to how findings or recommendations might be implemented or enforced.“It is too premature to provide a response to that,” Wilson wrote.“I imagine we will have some involvement, but that remains to be seen.”last_img read more

Statistical study offers evidence of warning signs before Neolithic community collapseStatistical study offers evidence of warning signs before Neolithic community collapse

first_img Citation: Statistical study offers evidence of warning signs before Neolithic community collapse (2016, August 30) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-08-statistical-evidence-neolithic-collapse.html This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (Phys.org)—A trio of researchers, two with the University of Maryland and the other with University College London has found that early Neolithic communities exhibited warning signs before collapsing. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Sean Downey, W. Randall Haas, Jr. and Stephen Shennan describe the statistical analysis they conducted on data that has been collected through prior efforts from Neolithic communities that existed approximately 9,000 years ago and what they learned as a result. Knowing when a given community, town or city is about to collapse could prove useful in the future as the planet continues to warm—how such communities responded to stresses that have occurred in the past, the researchers found, may offer clues to the robustness of modern communities.The European Neolithic was a time of huge population growth as agriculture allowed people to move into larger and larger communities and that allowed for technological advancement as many people discovered they no longer needed to spend their days hunting or growing food. But it was also a time of instability as increased population densities allowed diseases to spread more easily. There was also war and the always problematic unpredictable weather. Sometimes, such events led to the total collapse of a community. But before that happened, the researchers with this new effort contend, there were warning signs.To learn more about societal collapse during the Neolithic, the researchers pored over papers documenting archeological digs looking for population numbers along with information regarding evidence of prior events that may have signaled coming trouble. The focus of their research was how communities had responded to stresses in their recent past. Those that were not able to fully recover between events, they noted, were at the most risk of total collapse when a new event occurred. They dubbed such events early warning signals (EWSs). They then tried the opposite approach, looking first for EWSs for a given community and then using them to try to predict whether a given community eventually collapsed—they report that they found such signals to be remarkably accurate. They suggest similar models could be used to help predict which if any modern communities may be in for a similar fate. Explore further More information: Sean S. Downey et al. European Neolithic societies showed early warning signals of population collapse, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2016). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1602504113AbstractEcosystems on the verge of major reorganization—regime shift—may exhibit declining resilience, which can be detected using a collection of generic statistical tests known as early warning signals (EWSs). This study explores whether EWSs anticipated human population collapse during the European Neolithic. It analyzes recent reconstructions of European Neolithic (8–4 kya) population trends that reveal regime shifts from a period of rapid growth following the introduction of agriculture to a period of instability and collapse. We find statistical support for EWSs in advance of population collapse. Seven of nine regional datasets exhibit increasing autocorrelation and variance leading up to collapse, suggesting that these societies began to recover from perturbation more slowly as resilience declined. We derive EWS statistics from a prehistoric population proxy based on summed archaeological radiocarbon date probability densities. We use simulation to validate our methods and show that sampling biases, atmospheric effects, radiocarbon calibration error, and taphonomic processes are unlikely to explain the observed EWS patterns. The implications of these results for understanding the dynamics of Neolithic ecosystems are discussed, and we present a general framework for analyzing societal regime shifts using EWS at large spatial and temporal scales. We suggest that our findings are consistent with an adaptive cycling model that highlights both the vulnerability and resilience of early European populations. We close by discussing the implications of the detection of EWS in human systems for archaeology and sustainability science.center_img Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Ancient dental plaque sheds new light on the diet of Mesolithic foragers in the Balkans A regime shift model of population growth rate variability, radiocarbon date calibration, and EWSs that demonstrates CSD in growth rates can be recovered from simulated SPDs.

New stalls for hawkers at Gariahat to have space for advertisementsNew stalls for hawkers at Gariahat to have space for advertisements

first_imgKolkata: The new stalls that will be handed over to affected hawkers at Gariahat, will have space for advertisements at the back. The new concept was floated by Mayor Firhad Hakim, at a meeting with the hawkers’ organisation on Tuesday.”The stalls will have an attractive look, shaped like a square box. All 30 garment stalls that will come up will have space for advertisements. The lighting will be in a manner so that the advertisements can be seen from a distance,” said Member, Mayor-in-Council (Central Store) Tarak Singh. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseAccording to a senior official of KMC, the stalls will initially have the image of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, with the message that the government is with the hawkers (Hawker Der Sathe, Hawker Der Pashe). “We will be welcoming advertisements from private companies, which will add to the revenue of the civic body. This is the reason why we are designing the stalls in an attractive manner,” the official added. The Central Store is working on structuring the stalls in consultation with the hawkers. It has been decided that among the 30 stalls which will come up, seven will measure 6×3 feet while 23 will be 6×4 feet. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIt may be mentioned that the hawkers at Gariahat were recently shown a model 6×4 feet stall but the hawkers wanted some alterations. The civic body has already prepared an artist’s impression of the stall but the design has not been completely finalised yet. “We have also planned a screen-like cover on top of the stall made of non-flammable material, so that customers face little difficulty in purchasing things even during the monsoon,” Singh said. A group of architects that the civic body has consulted, suggested that the stalls should not block the signboards of the permanent shops. After every 10 stalls, there will be a small exit. The exits will facilitate air circulation and enable hawkers and others to flee if there is an emergency. It may be recalled that a massive fire at Gariahat on January 20 had damaged 30 stalls.last_img read more

Jim Samples president international Scripps NetJim Samples president international Scripps Net

first_imgJim Samples, president, international, Scripps Networks Interactive, talks about his company’s acquisition of Poland’s TVN and further plans in the CEE region.What were the attractions of TVN for Scripps and why is it a good fit for the group? We were looking to buy well-managed media groups in promising, growing markets. TVN in Poland fit all those criteria.  Once they started the sales process, it became clear that this company checked a lot of boxes for what we were looking for in a media partner – a very well-managed and profitable company in a market that was welcoming to international investors, with a management team that was eager to stay on board. The other thing I very much liked is that they have so successfully managed this transition from being a broadcast network-type of company to a company with a suite of properties including strong thematic channels and a vision for moving loyal viewers to a non-linear platform in the shape of TVN Player.Poland represents a microcosm of trends in media and TVN is adapting and navigating those trends. They are a great fit. They appeal more to women, like we do, and they have an aspirational audience. The profile of their audience is attractive to us, particularly since we think they have an opportunity to continue to grow their thematic channels business and strengthen their network portfolio.How is the integration of the group progressing and what are your ambitions in Poland for the rest of the year?The transition is going smoothly. TVN is such an attractive company that we were happy to step up our participation. TVN has now been delisted, and we’re just working through that process. What that means is, we do not have two publicly traded companies to manage, which facilitates longer-term strategic planning.What specific synergies are there between TVN – including its free-to-air broadcast operations and its stake in nc+ – and Scripps’ existing pay TV business in the CEE region?Dorota Szelągowska in Poland’s version of Kitchen CrashersFirst, the investment we made was large, and it was about believing in the strategy and vision of TVN’s management team. We think they have a lot of opportunity to grow. That was the most important driver for the acquisition, rather than synergies. It was more about investing in their strategic plan and enhancing their lifestyle channels with our content and knowhow.We have already been looking at our formats and TVN was eager to look at those for things that make sense. The first one they are going to do is Kitchen Crashers, which has been a very successful format for us. TVN will begin production on that show for next year, and we will also share some programming from our U.S. output.There are other interesting opportunities to strengthen their thematic channels but the real strength of TVN is their prolific output of original programming that feeds their networks.  That will very much continue. What we bring to the table is complementary.How attractive is the free TV market in Europe generally – and central and eastern Europe in particular – for Scripps and how big a part of the overall business do you envisage this becoming?We entered the Polish market nearly five years ago with the launch of Food Network. We acquired Travel Channel shortly thereafter. Today, we are participating in the Polish digital-terrestrial process to secure a license for a third channel in the market. This would mark our third FTA market in EMEA, which also includes the UK and Italy. We look at each market on a case-by-case basis. Does the advertising market support it? Is there a niche that we can carve out with a broad appeal for a free-to-air audience? We like the idea that between our own networks in Poland and what TVN brings to the table, we have a full suite of programming across the free-to-air spectrum.What are your main goals for your thematic channels in central and eastern Europe for the next year? Is it all about expanding distribution of existing services or do you plan any new brand launches?The TVN opportunity is unique and those don’t come along every day. We will continue to look at other opportunities in the region, but the core of our business, is our portfolio of channels – Food Network, Travel Channel and Fine Living. In the past year alone, we have announced 15 new launches across Central and Eastern Europe alone. Distribution has been growing, ratings have been growing, and we think there is more growth to be had so we will continue to invest in those channels. That said, our teams in the UK and in Poland – who are very familiar with those markets – will look for new opportunities, whether through organic growth of our channels, new partnerships or through new acquisitions.What plans do you have to further localise your services in the region and what level of content investment do you envisage to further this? What other plans do you have for new content across the region for the near term?A key driver for success in launching businesses around the world is localization. Today, we offer 10 localized feeds in 22 languages in 120 countries and territories across EMEA. Further investment in local productions will be a priority for us as we look to grow our business.  Our goal is to be the market leader in lifestyle, food and travel in each of the markets in which we are present.  We’ve made very good progress towards realising that vision.last_img read more
