Postal union to retailers Were as frustrated as you are about dispute

first_imgOTTAWA — The union representing striking Canada Post workers says there are positives in the Crown corporation’s latest contract offers.But the head of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers says the proposals issued yesterday don’t yet constitute finals offers that would put an end to rotating walkouts that are causing delivery delays across the country.Union national president Mike Palecek won’t say whether tentative deals can be reached before the Saturday deadline imposed by Canada Post.Palecek says the union needs concrete proposals for dealing with what he calls an “injury crisis” at Canada Post — and not just committees designed to punt worker health and safety concerns down the road.Rotating walkouts continued Thursday at processing plants in Montreal and Winnipeg, as well as at smaller locations in Ontario, British Columbia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has warned his government will take unspecified action to end the rotating strikes if there is no significant progress in the negotiations.Canada Post said recent major shutdowns of parcel processing in Toronto and Vancouver have created a backlog of nearly 500 tractor-trailer loads of parcels and packages that need to be sorted. The backlog has caused substantial delivery delays.Online sales giant eBay has called on Trudeau to legislate an end to the labour dispute before the holiday shopping rush hits its first peak later this month with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales events.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Morgan Freeman Joins Stand Up To Cancer And Genentech In New PSA

first_imgStand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, have collaborated on a new public service announcement (PSA) featuring Academy Award-winning actor and SU2C Ambassador Morgan Freeman, who also is an executive producer of The C Word, a powerful new cancer documentary.Video: :60 TV PSA – SUC2-Be The Breakthrough – Morgan FreemanThe PSA is part of a collaboration between SU2C and Genentech called Be The Breakthrough, a multi-faceted effort that celebrates the people behind progress in cancer: the patients who participate in clinical trials, the scientists and doctors who make medical advances and improve care, and the people who provide support to those living with cancer.While we have made significant progress, there is much left to do to fight cancer. The disease still affects 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the U.S. in their lifetime. The Be The Breakthrough PSA is designed to increase awareness of and educate about the critical importance of individual contributions, such as getting screened regularly and participating in clinical trials, to continue advancing progress against cancer.“I am honored to join Stand Up To Cancer and Genentech in this extremely important PSA campaign,” said Academy Award-winning actor Freeman. “As the executive producer of The C Word documentary, it’s important to me to help raise awareness of this disease and the progress being made. I hope through this PSA and also through The C Word that I can help change the way people view cancer.”The PSA will begin airing December 2016 and encourages the public to visit SU2C.org/breakthrough. The website will provide resources and tools for people who want to learn about screening tests and clinical trials that may be right for them.Freeman adds: “Even the smallest steps against cancer are breakthroughs and can lead to something extraordinary. Getting screened, participating in a clinical trial, caring for patients, teaching prevention or pursuing an uncharted area of research — these are all breakthroughs. Defeating cancer takes breakthroughs, and together we can all be the breakthrough.”In the PSA, Freeman, standing on a dramatically lit stage alongside cancer survivor Tonya Peat, delivers an inspiring and poetic monologue about what it means to “be the breakthrough.” Tonya represents all the brave survivors who fight tirelessly.The PSA was developed by the Creative Direction team of Nate Naylor and Chris Maiorino, and produced by the teams at Blacklist and Tendril, and Executive Produced by Madeline Marotto.In addition to Be The Breakthrough, Genentech is also a collaborator in Catalyst, a program that will use funding and materials from the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, diagnostic and medical devices industries to accelerate research on cancer prevention, detection and treatment.“We are grateful to Genentech for their continued dedication to Stand Up To Cancer’s research and their commitment to discovering science breakthroughs to help saves lives,” said Stand Up To Cancer Co-Founder Lisa Paulsen. “We are also grateful to Morgan Freeman for lending his voice to this campaign. His dedication to raising awareness for this disease through his participation in this PSA and through his documentary The C Word, makes him such a powerful ambassador.”“SU2C has made great progress against cancer by combining awareness, public education and cutting-edge research, which is why we’ve deepened our collaboration with them to include ‘Be The Breakthrough,’” said Troy Cox, Senior Vice President of BioOncology at Genentech. “We are excited to have Morgan Freeman bring his voice and advocacy to this public health initiative that empowers everyone to play a role in the fight against cancer.”last_img read more

Massive refugee influx from DR Congo straining neighbours resources – UN

12 January 2010A massive influx of 125,000 refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) into neighbouring Republic of Congo (ROC) and Central African Republic (CAR) after deadly ethnic clashes is severely stretching the meagre resources of the impoverished region, the United Nations refugee agency reported today. “There is an acute need for formal refugee sites to be established in both CAR and ROC, as the majority of the DRC refugees occupy public buildings and spaces,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesman Andrej Mahecic told a news briefing in Geneva, warning that the influx could lead to tensions with the local community.“In Mougoumba in CAR (where 17,000 people have fled, 60 per cent of them children and many from orphanages) the refugees outnumber the locals by 200 to one, while the Likouala region of northern ROC has seen its population double with the arrival of 107,000 refugees.”The refugees fled Equateur province in north-west DRC after fighting erupted in late October when Enyele militiamen launched deadly assaults on ethnic Munzayas over fishing and farming rights in the Dongo area. Tensions have since expanded to most parts of Equateur and the DRC army has launched an offensive against the militia.Although land has been allocated to accommodate 4,000 refugees in ROC, more space needs to be designated for refugee sites and discussions are ongoing with both ROC and CAR governments, Mr. Mahecic said. Meanwhile, UNHCR has sent emergency staff to support the widely dispersed refugee communities in this region.The UN World Food Programme (WFP) has already provided month-long rations of maize, beans, vegetable oil and salt for internally displaced persons (IDPs) within Equateur province, where peacekeepers from the UN mission in DRC (MONUC) have protected the food convoys. Refugees who fled across the Oubangui River into ROC started receiving WFP food aid at the end of November, but their numbers have now swelled.According to the DRC Government, 270 people were killed when the inter-ethnic clashes first erupted. read more

He also expects less drag from federal spending cuts and tax increases. Combined, those factors bode well for U.S. economic growth in coming quarters.The Dow Jones industrials rose 28.64 points to 16,469.99, the Nasdaq dipped 11.16 points to 4,131.91 while the S&P 500 index edged 0.61 of a point lower to 1,831.37.The coming week will see the first run of U.S. earnings reports trickle in from companies like resource heavyweight Alcoa Inc. on Thursday.Bloomberg News says that U.S. earnings are expected to rise just 3.7 per cent in the fourth quarter, excluding financial companies.Hopes are high that strong earnings can support the huge runup on U.S. markets last year, particularly after the Fed signalled last month that it is winding down a key area of stimulus.The U.S. Federal Reserve ended months of speculation last month and announced it would be cutting back on its US$85 billion of monthly bond purchases. Those purchases are credited with supporting a strong rally on stock markets in 2013, including a 30 per cent surge in the S&P 500 to a record high.Meanwhile, base metal prices backed off as China’s official non-manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index fell to a four-month low, coming in at 54.6 in December from 56 in November. A reading above 50 indicates expansion.China is the world’s second-biggest economy and its double digit growth of the past and huge appetite for commodities had been a huge plus for a resource-based market like the TSX.But traders have had to get used to a more modest growth rate of between seven and 7.5 per cent as the Chinese government keeps the lid on growth in order to keep inflation under control.“The days of 10 per cent growth are gone and they’re gone mainly because the government doesn’t want it anyways,” observed Andrew Pyle, investment adviser at ScotiaMcLeod in Peterborough, Ont.He added that there are concerns that growth could even go below seven per cent.“China GDP growth going down below seven per cent would have a dramatic impact on resources in general, so it wouldn’t be just be base metals, it would be crude and everything else.”North American markets got off to a lacklustre start to 2014 trading Thursday amid a slate of data showing manufacturing sectors in China, the U.S. and Canada still expanding but at a slower pace.The base metals sector was down 1.4 per cent as March copper on the New York Mercantile Exchange lost three cents to US$3.35 a pound. Capstone Mining (TSX:CS) shed eight cents to C$2.92 while Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) lost 69 cents to $26.89.The gold sector gave up early gains to post a loss of about one per cent as February bullion gained $13.40 to US$1,238.60 an ounce. Goldcorp (TSX:G) faded 42 cents to C$23.71.Energy stocks also weighed on the TSX as crude fell six per cent this past week due to growing inventories in the U.S. and an expected recovery in Libyan production.The energy sector lost 0.6 per cent as February crude on the Nymex fell $1.48 to US$93.96 a barrel. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) shed 32 cents to C$35.03.Tech stocks were mixed with Celestica (TSX:CLS) ahead 11 cents to $11.12.But BlackBerry (TSX:BB) shares lost 12 cents to $8.09 as it said that it is suing Typo Products, a company co-founded by TV personality Ryan Seacrest, saying that its new iPhone case rips off the famous BlackBerry keyboard.Automakers also released December sales figures for the U.S.Chrysler said its U.S. sales rose six per cent in the final month of the year and posted a nine per cent rise for 2013.Ford’s sales for December in the U.S. rose 1.8 per cent, lower than the 5.9 per cent gain that was expected. Ford’s U.S. sales jumped 11 per cent in 2013 to nearly 2.5 million — a six-year high and its shares were seven cents higher to US$15.51.General Motors’ December U.S. sales fell more than six per cent, but the company still finished the year with a 7.3 per cent increase.

PhilippiHagenbuch showcased Material Spreader at MINExpo 2016

first_imgPhilippi-Hagenbuch’s Material Spreader body provides a safe and efficient solution for mine haul road maintenance. It improves the safety and traction of icy haul roads in winter by applying road grit. During spring thaw, the Material Spreader easily tackles deteriorating road areas by spreading repair material and building up areas.“We receive multiple requests every year for a sanding body that can apply grit to haul roads,” said Josh Swank, Philippi-Hagenbuch Vice President of Sales. “When we started designing the material spreading system, we wanted to ensure that it met the same criteria as all of our products. This spreader, like all PHIL products, is robustly built to withstand the harshest worksite conditions, simple to operate, and designed to maximize efficiency and achieve the truck’s true hauling capacity.”The heart of the system is a patented PHIL rear-eject body coupled with the new Material Spreader attachment. The Material Spreader easily spreads road grit, sand or other material ranging in size from very fine to more than 50mm (2 in). Operators can easily adjust the material spreading width from about 4.6 m (15 ft) to more than 18 m (60 ft). The haul truck operator controls the material spreading rate and width from the truck’s cab. An optional top-loading Grizzly Screen controls the maximum size of the material being spread. The ejector blade on the proven PHIL rear-eject body moves material to the rear of the body and into a cross auger channel. The auger gathers material to the centre of the spreader and then discharges it onto a set of material spinners for spreading.The PHIL Material Spreader body can provide companies with a fast return on investment since it eliminates the need to purchase a dedicated piece of sanding equipment. It adapts to year-round use as the spreader, adds traction to icy roads during the winter and builds up and maintains haul roads in the spring and fall. During summer, the rear-eject body hauls and spreads material. A crew can easily install or remove the Material Spreader attachment from that body within about two hours.PHIL builds the Material Spreader, like all its products, to be efficient, easy to operate and withstand the test of time. The system is made with Hardox 450 steel and designed for maximum productivity. “We are always looking for ways to make our customers’ lives and jobs safer, more productive and more efficient,” Swank said. “This is the first in a series of PHIL Ejector Body attachments that will help us expand the flexibility of our Rear-Eject Body technology while achieving our goal of making mines more productive, profitable and safe.”last_img read more

Japans TEPCO admits downplaying tsunami risk

first_imgTHE OPERATOR OF Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant admitted today it had played down the risks to the facility of a tsunami for fear of the political, financial and cost to reputation.The admission is one of the starkest yet by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which has been criticised for trying to shirk responsibility for the worst nuclear disaster in a generation.The report says before the huge waves of March 2011 smashed into the plant the company was aware defences against natural disaster were insufficient, but did not act because of the possible consequences.Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) said in a report:There was a latent fear that plant shutdown would be required until severe accident measures were put in place.The document, entitled “Fundamental Policy for the Reform of TEPCO Nuclear Power Organization” says insufficient planning was done to prepare for a natural disaster.It said “severe accident” measures were taken in 2002, but nothing since because of worries about how it would appear to people living nearby.There was concern that if new severe accident measures were implemented, it could spread concern in the siting community that there is a problem with the safety of current plants.It also said any action might “add momentum to anti-nuclear movements”.The company admitted it was frightened by the prospect of getting sued if it acknowledged the safety regime in place was not up to scratch.InvestigationsTEPCO, which has been lambasted as secretive, produced the report after convening a panel of outside experts to review its nuclear programmes.Its admission of failure is a sharp about-face from previous claims that the tsunami was beyond conventional scientific expectation and there was no way they could have reasonably prepared for it.However, two separate investigation panels, set up by the government and the legislature, both found TEPCO had been blinkered to the potential risks.Those risks became reality on March 11, 2011, when a towering tsunami triggered by a record offshore earthquake slammed into Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, knocking out cooling systems and sending reactors into meltdown.The crippled units spewed radioactive materials across a wide area, contaminating a swathe of farmland in one of land-strapped Japan’s key food-producing areas.They also forced tens of thousands of people from their homes, many of whom are still living in temporary accommodation. Some may never be allowed to return.The clean-up of the land and demolition of the reactors are expected to take decades, while many communities remain deserted.The giant utility, which has since been nationalised, faces colossal compensation claims in addition to the cost of dismantling the Fukushima plant.No one is officially recorded as having died as a direct result of the nuclear accident, although the natural disaster is believed to have killed almost 19,000 people.Read: Fukushima caused mutant butterflies: scientists>Read: Fukushima operators release first video of explosion aftermath>last_img read more

GEEK PICK OF THE DAY CubeWorks SelfDestruct USB 30 Hub

first_img Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls Stay on target We here at Geek.com know about self-destruction. We also have a lot of USB devices. That’s why this USB hub is great. The ThinkGeek-exclusive Cube-Works Self-Destruct USB 3.0 Hub is a USB hub and a doomsday button all in one.Yes, it’s a novelty USB hub. But it’s a pretty nice one! It has a solid aluminum body, with a nice, thick cable permanently and securely attached to the back. And, of course, the blue tabs on the ports on the back mean it’s a USB 3.0 hub, so you’re going to get nice, fast transfer speeds. I like having the permanently attached cable, because then I don’t need to worry if whatever USB cable I grabbed to plug the hub into my computer is USB 3.0 or not.It looks like a weapon launch button, or at least what a nerd would think a weapon launch button looks like. Three-step command, with two toggle switches and a key switch, surrounding a big red button under a flip-up plastic lid. A big red light turns on when the switches are all flipped in the right order, and pressing the button makes a falling bomb noise.The noise is my only complaint. It sounds pretty flaccid, even for a small, USB-powered speaker. The satisfying clack of the toggle switches, and just being able to turn the key and flip the cover up and down, are much more satisfying than the sound effect. As fake explosions go, though, it sounds like a dud.This is a nice little desktop toy that gives you something to physically play with, and adds extra USB 3.0 ports to your computer. It’s a little pricey at $59.99, but for the money you get a USB hub that’s solid, eye-catching, and fun to use.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Median salary for graduate jobs rises by 125

first_imgThe median salary for graduate job roles has increased by 1.25% in the last year, rising from £27,654 to £28,000, according to research by Incomes Data Research (IDR).The Graduate and apprentice pay 2019 report, based on research conducted in spring 2019 using information from 56 UK-based organisations that employ a total of 550,000 staff, also found that the median annual pay for degree-level apprentices has improved, rising from £16,000 last year to £17,875 this month.The research further found that a first-year apprentice is likely to earn £6.65 per hour if working at an intermediate or advanced level; this is 71% higher than the statutory national minimum wage rate for apprentices of £3.90 an hour.Higher level apprentices or those at degree level can receive up to £8.44 an hour or £9.14 an hour, respectively.Zoe Woolacott, spokesperson at IDR, said: “The introduction of degree-level apprenticeships provides more choice for employers wishing to develop degree-qualified staff, with the benefit of a lower cost, at least initially.”last_img read more

100 of the Worlds Rarest Sneakers Are Up for Auction

first_img Sneakerheads might want to get their credit cards out. In the first-ever auction of its kind, Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods have partnered to offer the “Ultimate Sneaker Collection” — 100 of the world’s rarest sneakers — up for sale in an online-only auction.The collection includes sneakers that have attained “grail” status, limited-edition designs by leading fine artists and musicians, and even “genre-disrupting” collaborations from the greatest athletes of all time, according to Sotheby’s.This 2002 release of the Nike SB Dunk Low with artwork by French painter Bernard Buffet is one of the most sought-after sneakers of all time. (Photo Credit: Stadium Goods)“From the Paris Nike SB Low Dunks featuring designs by Bernard Buffet to the Nike Moon Shoe originally hand made by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, the sale offers a range of rare, highly-coveted collectible sneakers bringing together art, culture and fashion,” Noah Wunsch, Sotheby’s Global Head of eCommerce, said in a statement.Some of the most notable models include the 2011 and 2016 versions of the Nike Air Mag, the once-fictional sneaker worn by Marty McFly in Back to the Future Part 2. Nike released only 26 pairs of the 2016 self-lacing version, and like the 2011 version, benefited the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Due to the power-lacing feature and extreme rarity, a size 11 pair up for auction is estimated to sell for up to $70,000.Nike, Nike Mag, Back to the Future 2016.

This “Karl” edition is thought to be the only pair in existence. The size 9.5 pair is expected to fetch up to $50,000.Chanel x Pharrell x Adidas NMD Hu TR – 1-of-1 for Karl Lagerfeld. (Photo Credit: Stadium Goods)But perhaps the most exclusive pair in the collection is the handmade Nike “Moon Shoe,” created by Nike co-founder, famed Olympic team, and University of Oregon running coach Bill Bowerman. He created just 12 pairs of the shoes for U.S. runners at the 1972 Olympic trials.As the famous story goes, Bowerman was first inspired to create the innovative waffle sole traction pattern found on the brand’s early running shoes by tinkering with his wife’s waffle iron, pouring rubber into the mold to create the first prototype of the sole. The finished design of the traction pattern created better grip and cushion than most running shoes of the time, and the waffle sole was Nike’s first major innovation as a brand. The “Moon Shoe” got its name from the resemblance between the impression that the waffle pattern left in dirt and the famous tracks left on the moon by astronauts in 1969. (By coincidence, the 50th anniversary of the moon landing takes place while this auction is live, on July 20th.)Nike Waffle Racing Flat, Moon Shoe. (Photo Credit: Stadium Goods)This Nike Moon Shie pair was hand-cobbled by one of Nike’s first employees, Geoff Hollister. The pair (in size 12.5) does not say “Nike” anywhere inside or outside the design, with only the side Swooshes designating them as a Nike shoe. This is the only pair known to exist in unworn, deadstock condition. It’s estimated to fetch up to $160,000.Other rare sneakers up for auction include the Nike Air Force 1 produced to promote Jay-Z’s album “The Blueprint 2” in 2003; the Eminem x Carhartt x Air Jordan 4; the Air Jordan 11 Jeter produced to commemorate baseball great Derek Jeter’s retirement; the DJ Khaled x Air Jordan  “Friends & Family” and the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 by Virgil Abloh.Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods’ “Ultimate Sneaker Collection” auction is now open for bids and will remain active until July 23.

MovieBob Reviews ROGUE ONE A STAR WARS STORY

first_imgRogue One: A Star Wars Story is fundamentally an experiment – a test case to see if people actually want to see Star Wars movies set in the Universe, using all the familiar iconography (weapons, creatures, all the other various toys) but in different ways to make different types of films outside the main series’ rather insular rotating circles of the Jedi, the Sith, the Skywalker family, The Force, etc. On one level, it’s kind of a cynical scheme; a way for Disney to make sure they’ve always got something with “STAR WARS” stamped on it in theaters every year but (sort-of) also be making semi-original movies, so we don’t get sick of it too fast. But it’s also an opportunity for a broader range of filmmakers to play in one of the bigger franchise sandboxes and (at minimum) have some really cool, different stuff happen.And when Rogue One is following the “cool and different” edict, that’s when it’s awesome – and fortunately, that’s most of the time. The idea here is to make a gritty, seedy, espionage-focused military story in the Star Wars Universe; and right off the bat it’s novel to see the first Star Wars movie basically ever that isn’t deliberately trying to mimic the look and feel of A New Hope: It doesn’t have traditional Star Wars-style editing, it doesn’t have the same type of cinematography (much more handheld and “in the mix” of things), and it doesn’t follow the expected beats and rhythms. Sometimes the differences are more precise since, well, we’re still dealing with Stormtroopers and blasters and X-Wings and all that business; but it does end up feeling like a very different kind of Star Wars movie. Not quite “Jessica Jones vs. The Avengers movies” different, but it’s still pretty different.A lot of that difference comes from just the premise: The “big idea” here is that this is the new story of how the Rebels got the Death Star plans in A New Hope and, also, why the Death Star had such a relatively easy to exploit fatal weakness in the first place (oh, lord… we’re going to get movies explaining every minor fanboy nitpick now, aren’t we?) now that Dark Forces is no longer “official” canon. Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso is a street-tough nomad troublemaker who’s also the daughter of the engineer (Mads Mikkelsen) The Empire is forcing to build The Death Star – and since it’s believed he’s trying to defect and reveal secrets, The Rebellion scoops her up to use as leverage. To say more would be to invite spoilers, so suffice it to say she ends up reluctantly (and then enthusiastically) helping a “too rebellious even for a Rebellion” team of scoundrels (including Diego Luna, Donnie Yen and Alan Tudyk mo-capping a wiseass Droid) to get the job done and set the stage for all the stuff we already know happens.Since that kind of intelligence-gathering mission in actual wartime tends to be undertaken by the less-than-savory part of an army, what we’ve got here is the first real Star Wars movie that’s laser-focused on the less-than-nice “underbelly” part of The Rebellion: There’s no Jedi presence (well, not really) in the mix this time, so all the usual business about The Force and “balance” and not being mean or angry regardless of what team your on doesn’t really enter into it – these are the results-oriented, “off the books” cutthroats who do the Machiavellian wetwork so the Leia’s and Luke’s can win clean later; the snipers, assassins, thieves, bomb-throwers and borderline terrorists – we’re a long way from the scenario where Han Solo can be the “morally complicated” one by virtue of being (gasp!) a smuggler.And when Rogue One is keeping to that territory of “stuff you don’t usually get from Star Wars movies,” it comes damn close to being Empire Strikes Back good. It doesn’t get there (what does?) but you can see it on the horizon. On its own merits, it’s pretty damn excellent; especially once it really finds its groove at the midpoint and coalesces in a finale that’s genuinely awe-inspiring. Do not let people spoil this one for you.On the other hand, while the most welcome thing about it is that it’s a new, different take on a Star Wars movie, I did kind of find myself wishing that it was even more different. The newness is a little jarring at first because it still looks and sounds enough like the other seven movies that it takes awhile to adjust to the fact that it’s not going to follow the structural beats you find yourself expecting. But once I did adjust, what I found instead was that the material that feels dropped in to remind you that you’re watching a Star Wars movie kept taking me out of it to one degree or another.None of it is fatal, but there’s just a few too many cameos, callbacks and fanservice jokes leaning in from the margins. Most of them are cute and there’s only one major scene that feels like it only exists to give a certain popular character more screen time, but a few briefly make you feel like your watching the Special Edition of a Star Wars movie you didn’t get to see the original cut of. There’s also a pair of surprise cameos (I won’t spoil who) realized through fully-CGI characters (integrated into scenes with the other human performers) because their respective actors have either passed away or aged considerably and the effect is… well, uncanny in the bad way. Granted, that technology is never going to improve if filmmakers don’t keep trying at it, but these are going to be memes by the weekend (and not flattering ones.)I’m also a bit mixed on the music. The film has a John Williams sound-alike score from Michael Giacchino that’s… just fine; but I couldn’t help but feel like something that works so hard to not look like just another Star Wars movie would be better off with a score that’s not constantly referencing the classic themes. Supposedly they actually had something like that originally and Giacchino was brought in by the studio to replace it. I don’t know how much of that is true, I just know what my ears heard (ditto the rumors of extensive reshoots and studio interference – it certainly feels likely, but who can really say at this point?)Still, while my “issues” remain and are evenly distributed across the whole movie… I still feel that they’re overall pretty minor. This is a damn good movie and I feel like it’s ripped the band-aid off the potential of what a Star Wars movie can be going forward – that’s exciting. I’m not terribly interested in the business of whether it’s “better” than The Force Awakens. But it’s probably more… “interesting,” in and of itself.Look, we all know that you’re going to see this no matter what I or any other critic had to say about it, but you can relax: Rogue One delivers the goods.last_img read more

The Promising Plot Potential of Predator

first_imgStay on target Terrifying ‘Death Roll’ Almost Universal Among Crocodile SpeciesRare Images of Spiders Devouring Frogs, Lizards, and Small Mammals While its later sequels have disappointed, to say the least, the original Alien movies are great, especially the first one. They’re legitimate cinematic sci-fi masterpieces, exploring new ideas like the future of the working class, the horror of the cosmic unknown, and the monstrous side of unwanted pregnancy. They’re art.Meanwhile, Predator, the series that deservedly or not is now tied to Alien at the hip, is a lot of dumb fun. It’s one of the better Schwarzenegger movies. Doing Vietnam but instead, the Americans are the outgunned primitives is a cheeky reversal. And while they aren’t dripping with the surreal psycho-sexuality of H.R. Giger’s Xenomorph design, the Predator itself is a really rad and iconic sci-fi monster. Predator is dumb, inarguably much dumber than Alien, but it’s a charming kind of dumb, and it’s a kind of dumb I’m more excited to see expanded in future films, like The Predator in theaters this weekend.The moment I realized the Predator franchise’s potential for gloriously stupid lore was when I watched Predator 2 for the first time. Don’t get me wrong. Despite, some underappreciated work from Danny Glover, 1990’s Predator 2 is a bad movie. But it’s a frustrating bad movie because its premise had such promise. Instead of stalking soldiers in the jungle, an invisible alien hunter stalks gangsters (who also have dreadlocks) and befuddled cops in the far-flung future of 1997 Los Angeles summertime. How great and thematically loaded does that sound?Again, Predator 2 is a bad movie, dumb in all the wrong ways. It’s even the film origin of the Alien vs. Predator nonsense (which truly began in a Dark Horse comic) thanks to a Xenomorph skull in a throwaway trophy room shot. But just imagining the possibilities of what a simple change in setting can do for Predator had my mind racing. If the franchise was willing to change itself so substantially, what would the next (hopefully more successful) film look like?In 2010 we got our answer with the Robert Rodriguez-produced Predators, the third standalone Predator film. And it’s pretty good! Although technically set on an alien jungle, the environment is much closer to the original film. The plural title may suggest an Aliens-style expansion, but the scope is pretty contained. Two rival Predator tribes fight over human prey. Along with some Predator-on-Predator action, this also gives us a tantalizing glimpse into Predator culture. The “good” Predators are the classic designs while the villains are new, young, scarier “Berserker” Predators. Predator millennials, basically.Overall Predators is a pretty safe legacy sequel that tries to give audiences more of what they want, a smart if boring move after the failure of the more conceptually ambitious Predator 2. But the best thing the movie has going for it is its unconventional cast. While the characters are all hardened, morally murky, warrior badasses like in the original film, the actors themselves are not necessarily the folks you’d expect for those roles. Instead of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers, we have Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Walton Goggins, and Mahershala Ali. It gives the movie a strange almost arthouse energy that’s really compelling.The next Predator film, simply called The Predator, is out basically now, and I’m pretty stoked. One, it’s written and directed by the legendary Shane Black, the man who gave us Lethal Weapon and The Nice Guys and Iron Man 3. He even acted in the original 1987 Predator. Like Predators, The Predator has a really intriguing battle-ready cast including Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Alfie Allen, and Thomas Jane.But the most exciting part of The Predator to me is also potentially the dumbest. Previous Predator movies made vague allusions to prior films. Characters recalled unconfirmed alien attacks in the jungle or something. But in The Predator Gary Busey’s son Jake Busey plays the son of Gary Busey’s character in Predator 2. That direct continuity is so dumb it’s fantastic.That’s precisely the kind of dumbness we need more of from this series. Build upon that dumb lore. For all of their problems, this is where the Alien vs. Predator video games and novels and crossover comics and movies really shine. For example, did you know the correct name for Predators is “Yautja”? What else do we not know about them and their stupid culture? Do those dreads serve any purpose? Why do they mockingly laugh like that? What do Predators who aren’t hunters look like? Do Predator doctors and business people even exist? Is hunting all Predators do for pleasure?No one actually needs to know the answers to these questions. Some of them are probably even already out there. But unlike with Alien: Covenant where over-explaining the mythology cheapens the original art, there’s nothing really to ruin with Predator. It’s already dumb, so go nuts! And if you accidentally making something truly profound with this care-free approach, then even better. In AVP, Sanaa Lathan becomes an honorary Predator after helping them hunt an Alien on a pyramid or something. In AVP: Requiem, an old retired Predator hunts an Alien-Predator in a small town. Just throw more stuff at the wall!The Transformers franchise is similarly low-stakes/high potential artistic reward when it comes to fun narrative. You’re not going to make worse movies than the ones you’re already making. So why not experiment, toss out the humans, and explore life on Cybertron? I would kill for a Predator protagonist with just half as much characterization as Optimus Prime. They would make such great anti-heroes. Heck, Fox is already down with creating excellent sci-fi movies starring non-human characters in the Planet of the Apes reboot. Get Andy Serkis to play a Predator!For some reason, Fox wants to let Ridley Scott make like a half-dozen more pointless Alien prequels. But I say the studio is focusing on the wrong sci-fi monster. If there’s one franchise that’d benefit from a dumb, bloated cinematic universe, it’s Predator.Check out the Predator Triple Pack on Blu-ray!View as: One Page Slides1/51. Predator 2 squandered a lot of amazing potential.2. The world needs more weird and dumb Predator content.3. While the Alien franchise inarguably has more artistic merit, it’s now joined at the hip with Predator.4. Predators! Yautja! They’re great!5.

Firefox oneoff Searches from the address bar

first_imgFirefox one-off Searches from the address bar by Martin Brinkmann on August 09, 2016 in Firefox – 15 commentsMozilla pushed a feature to Firefox 51 Nighty the other day that introduces so-called one-off searches from the address bar to the browser.The main idea behind the feature is to give Firefox users direct options to run searches using other installed search engines.Firefox, like any other browser, uses one particular search engine for searches from the address bar.While it is possible to run searches using different search engines with the help of keywords, it is not a well known feature and requires some manual work to set it up properly.Additionally, it requires that these keywords are being added to the search string each time a different search engine needs to be used.Firefox one-off searchesIf you are running Firefox 51 Nightly currently, you may have noticed already that the browser lists installed and visible search engines as icons after the search suggestions when you type in the browser’s address bar.Please note that the installation of customization extensions like Classic Theme Restorer may prevent the icons from being displayed there.Firefox may display bookmarks, open tabs, history entries and search suggestions when you enter a string in the address bar. Search suggestions are powered by the default search engine only. There was no option to quickly run a search using a different search engine up until now from the address bar.This changes with the introduction of One-Off searches in Firefox. Basically, what it allows you to do, is click on an icon of another installed search engine to use it for that search.Firefox will load the results in the browser afterwards without changing the default search engine. This can be useful to run searches on different general purpose search engines, but also to direct searches to specialized sites like Wikipedia, Amazon or IMDb.Firefox displays only search engines selected for display in the new interface. You may click on the preferences icon on the right side of the search icon listing to open the search preferences and change that.You may load the preferences directly using the following url: about:preferences#searchTo add or remove a search engine from the one-off interface, click in front of it under one-click search engines to display or remove a checkmark icon. Checked search engines are displayed as options, unchecked ones are not.Turning it offFirefox users who have no use for the new one-off display in the address bar may turn the feature off. Users who make use of keyword searches may fall into that category for instance.Type about:config in Firefox’s address bar and hit enter.Confirm that you will be careful if the warning prompt is displayed.Search for browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches.Double-click on the preference.Setting browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches to false turns the feature off.
