Palace remain in 14th with 19 points. last_img read more

Urban Meyer Says Braxton Miller Position Change Story “Jumped The Gun”: “I Haven’t Made Those Decisions Yet”

(Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images) braxton miller urban meyer 2012 ohio state spring gameTwitter/@StephDEpifanioSports Illustrated dropped a late news bomb on the college football world earlier, with the news that Braxton Miller will be moving to wide recevier/h-back for the coming season. The move has been met with praise from Buckeye fans, and members of the team. One key member of the program isn’t ready to fully commit to the move, however: head coach Urban Meyer. The three-time national champion told The Columbus Dispatch that reports of the official position change are a bit premature.“I haven’t made those decisions yet,” Meyer told The Dispatch. “It’s a little bit jumping the gun here. Braxton came to see me. He’s been talking to me about it (the switch). We’ve been working at it, but I’m not ready to say exactly how we’re going to use him yet.”Considering Pete Thamel’s SI report was based on a conversation with Miller, we have to imagine the move is, in fact, happening. Meyer is probably not thrilled that it was announced in July, giving Virginia Tech and others more than a month to prep for a J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones-led offense, as well as figure out how to defend Miller as a skill guy. Otherwise, this would be a pretty crazy redirection by members of the Buckeye program.[Columbus Dispatch]last_img read more

THE OAK ROOM BLACK FAWN FILMS BEGINS PRODUCTION ON NEW THRILLER

first_img Facebook During a raging snowstorm, a drifter returns home to the blue-collar bar located in the remote Canadian town where he was born. When he offers to settle an old debt with a grizzled bartender by telling him a story, the night’s events quickly spin into a dark tale of mistaken identities, double crosses and shocking violence. You’re not going to believe what happened at The Oak Room…The Oak Room stars Peter Outerbridge, RJ Mitte and Ari MIllen.Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment Inc., the filmmaking team behind such genre hits as I’ll Take Your Dead, Let Her Out, Bite and Antisocial have started production on their newest collaboration, The Oak Room. Principal photography is set to commence in Burlington, Ontario this July. The film stars RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad), Peter Outerbridge (Suicide Squad, V-Wars) and Ari Millen (Orphan Black, I’ll Take Your Dead).After taking some time off after his last film, director/producer Cody Calahan teamed up with writer Peter Genoway to adapt Genoway’s stage play The Oak Room into a feature length film. The original stage production took home first place honors at this year’s Toronto Fringe Festival in the prestigious New Play Contest category while also being selected as a Patron’s Pick (Theatre Passe Muraille’s top box office earner). The play was also nominated for Best Independent Production by broadway.com. Twitter Prolific filmmaking group Black Fawn Films are entering production once again. Next week, just outside of Toronto, they begin working on their next film, The Oak Room, based off of the Canadian stage play from Peter Genoway.

With new Egypt capital being built what becomes of Cairo

first_imgCAIRO — Billboards across Cairo advertise luxury homes with “breathtaking” views in compounds with names like “La Verde” or “Vinci” in Egypt’s new capital that is under construction in the desert, miles from the Nile-side city which has been the seat of power for more than 1,000 years.Often, what lies behind the billboards are Cairo’s most overcrowded neighbourhoods, with shoddily built homes and dirt roads frequently inundated with sewage water.A city of some 20 million people combining charm and squalor, Cairo may soon witness an exodus by well-heeled residents, state employees and foreign embassies to the New Administrative Capital, as the vast project in the desert is provisionally known. It will be the latest phase in the flight of the rich, many of whom have already moved to gated communities in new suburbs, leaving the old Cairo in neglect and decay.The new capital — a proper name has yet to be found — is the $45 billion brainchild of general-turned-president Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the biggest of the mega-projects he launched since taking office in 2014. He contends the projects, ranging from new roads and housing complexes to a Suez Canal expansion, attract investors and create jobs.Senior officials boastfully compare what has been built under el-Sissi to monuments like the Giza Pyramids.“History will do justice to this generation of Egyptians and our grandsons will remember its achievement, a wave of construction unprecedented in modern-day Egypt,” Prime Minister Mustafa Madbouly, also the housing minister, proclaimed.Critics call the new capital a vanity project, arguing its cost could have been better put to rebuilding the wrecked economy and refurbishing Cairo.They also see it as evidence of el-Sissi’s authoritarianism, launching a multibillion-dollar plan with little debate. El-Sissi often lashes out at those who question him, telling Egyptians to listen only to him and saying he’s answerable to God alone. He often says Egypt’s resources are limited — leading some Egyptians, struggling amid skyrocketing prices, to wonder why so much is spent on questionable projects.“There is something very wrong with the order of priorities,” said political analyst Hassan Nafaa. “Maybe el-Sissi wants to go down in history as the leader who built the new capital, but if Egyptians don’t see an improvement in their living conditions and services, he will be remembered as the president who destroyed what is left of the middle class.”The government argues that Cairo is already bursting at the seams and will grow to 40 million by 2050.The new city is being built on 170,000 acres about 28 miles east of Cairo and nearly twice its size. Construction began in 2016, and the first of its forecast 6.5 million residents are scheduled to move there next year.The city will house the presidency, Cabinet, parliament and ministries. Planners promise a 21-mile-long public park, an airport, an opera house, a sports complex and 20 skyscrapers, including Africa’s highest, at 345 metres.Madbouly denied the new city will only attract the well-off, saying it is “for all Egyptians.”Prices tell a different story. The smallest apartment there — 120 square meters — is expected to cost 1.3 million Egyptian pounds ($73,000), out of reach for a mid-level bureaucrat, who may make the equivalent of about $4,800 a year.“Those targeted to live in the new capital constitute a very, very limited segment of society,” said Nafaa.Ironically, the new capital could one day be overwhelmed by the old, as illegal construction expands. That has often been the way Cairo has evolved, with the rich moving out, only to move again as the city swells, adding layer after layer.“Throughout the history of Cairo, the ruling elite and the rich have failed to completely isolate themselves from the rest of the population,” said novelist Hamdy Abu Golayyel, who authored a book about the city called “Cairo, Streets and Stories.” It will take draconian laws to keep the new city distinct, he said.No one knows how Cairo will be impacted by a new capital and the shift of the seat of power outside of the city for the first time since the Muslim conquest in the 7th Century.Many government buildings in Cairo, for example, are palaces and mansions confiscated by the socialist government of the 1950s and 1960s. In theory, they could be renovated and turned into museums or hotels, proponents argue. But then, many such empty architectural treasures are already left to fall apart or even torn down.The government is renovating some of Cairo’s illegally built neighbourhoods. But in one case, it razed a run-down district and moved out residents after compensating them to make way for a high-end district.Amar Ali Hassan, a sociopolitical expert, believes Cairo’s woes will only deepen.“It could be neglected, become estranged and left to die a slow death,” he said.Sameh Abdallah Alayli, an urban planning expert, wrote in the Al-Shorouk newspaper that the idea of a new capital was unacceptable, construction should be halted and the focus put back on overhauling the ancient city.“Historical Cairo must remain the political capital of Egypt,” he wrote.___Associated Press writer Samy Magdy in Cairo contributed to this report.Hamza Hendawi, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Nirav Modis beach bungalow blownup with controlled blast

first_imgRaigad (Maharashtra): Authorities here on Friday carried out a controlled blast to raze the luxurious beach bungalow of absconding diamantaire Nirav Modi, one of the prime accused in the Punjab National Bank scam, official sources said. Over 100 dynamite sticks were strategically placed within and outside the bungalow near Kihim beach, and the blast took place at 11.15 a.m. amidst tight security, said an eyewitness from the site. Few days ago, detonators were fixed at various points on the bungalow – located around 110 km from Mumbai – to carry out the ‘implosion’ and bring it down in a single-shot. Also Read – IAF Day: Tributes paid to soldiers killed in line of duty in Jammu With the complete structure razed to the ground, labourers will now start the work of removing the debris from the venue over the next couple of weeks. On January 25, the Collectorate had initiated the demolition process using traditional methods of bulldozers, excavators and other such manually-operated equipment, but it proved to be a slow and tedious process. Attached by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in December 2018, the bungalow was stripped off all its valuables, art works, paintings and other expensive items. All glass structures were removed to enable the controlled blasting. Also Read – Shashi Tharoor writes to PM Modi: Don’t let your ‘mann ki baat’ become ‘maun ki baat’ Modi, along with his uncle Mehul Choksi and others, are the prime accused and fugitives in the Rs 14,000-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud admitted in February 2018. Though the Alibag bungalow was not directly linked with the PNB scam, it was attached by the ED along with his known assets in Maharashtra, Gujarat and other places in an effort to recover a part of the dues from Modi. Built in 2009-2010, on a 70,000 square feet plot, the 33,000 square feet bungalow with several bedrooms is accessible through a long driveway, protected by high metal fencing and a huge security gate, and was noted for lavish parties hosted here regularly. The demolition process followed orders of the Bombay High Court in a Public Interest Litigation filed by NGO Shamburaje Yuva Kranti (SYK), seeking action against various illegal bungalows, hotels and resorts violating the high tide and low tide zones in tiny villages dotting the beaches of Raigad. SYK state chief Surendra Dhavale said that so far 10 bungalows have been demolished in the past few months, and now Modi’s bungalow was razed, with at least another four dozen on the Collector’s demolition list. “The claimed value of the (Modi) property is cited as Rs 13 crore, but given the current market rates, this bungalow is worth over Rs 100 crore,” Dhavale told IANS. Besides, Choksi – now a citizen of Antigua & Barbuda, many celebrities, industrialists, top businessmen, film and television personalities own big and small properties on this picturesque stretch of central coastal Konkan region, barely an hour’s boat ride from the mainland at Gateway of India.last_img read more

Rising airfares DGCA meets airlines to engage with them for appropriate action

first_imgNew Delhi: Aviation regulator DGCA will continue to monitor airfare movements on a daily basis and also engage with airline for appropriate action, a senior official said Tuesday amid concerns over rising ticket prices. With crisis-hit Jet Airways drastically curtailing its operations, there has been an adverse impact on the number of flights being operated on various routes. As concerns persist on higher air ticket prices, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Tuesday held a meeting with representatives of airlines, the official said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Airlines were advised to continue to monitor at their level and provide information to the DGCA to keep fares low as far as possible, he noted. “Airlines representative also intimated DGCA that they have removed the few higher buckets from sale and offering tickets to passengers in lower fare buckets. “DGCA will continue to monitor fare movement on daily basis and engage with airline for appropriate action,” the official added. According to him, the regulator monitors domestic airfares on a daily basis, particularly on high density routes and routes where alternate mode of transport is not available or is difficult. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Based on the monitoring process, the DGCA engages with airlines when the spurt in airfares is observed in any sector for appropriate action, he added. Earlier in the day, Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu had called for a review of issues related to struggling Jet Airways, including rising fares and flight cancellations. “Directed Secretary @MoCA_GoI to review issues related to Jet Airways, especially increasing fares, flight cancellations etc,” Prabhu said in a tweet. Besides asking Civil Aviation Secretary Pradeep Singh Kharola to take necessary steps to protect passenger rights and safety, Prabhu also called for working with all stakeholders for their well being.last_img read more

Asteroid makes close approach to Earth NASA

first_imgNEW YORK – NASA stated Friday a newly discovered asteroid made a close approach to Earth on September 16, which “could be back in Earth’s neighborhood in 2032”The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) stated Friday a newly discovered asteroid made a close approach to Earth on September 16, which “could be back in Earth’s neighborhood in 2032”.Published on NASA’s official website, the statement said the asteroid named 2013 TV135 was initially estimated to be about 400 meters (1,300 feet).The scientists said the asteroid made it’s closest approach as about 6.7 million kilometers (4.2 million miles), whose orbit carries it as far out as about three quarters of the distance between the Moon and the Earth.Scientists, who made observations for an orbital period that spans almost four years, stated its future orbital path was still quite uncertain. NASA’s Near-Earth Object Program Office noted the probability this asteroid could then impact Earth was only one in 63,000.The asteroid was discovered on October 8, 2013, by astronomers working at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory in Ukraine. As of October 14, asteroid 2013 TV135 is one of 10,332 near-Earth objects that have been discovered.“To put it another way, that puts the current probability of no impact in 2032 at about 99.998 percent,” said Don Yeomans, manager of NASA’s Near-Earth Object Program Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. “This is a relatively new discovery. With more observations, I fully expect we will be able to significantly reduce, or rule out entirely, any impact probability for the foreseeable future.”NASA detects, tracks and characterizes asteroids and comets passing close to Earth using both ground- and space-based telescopes. The Near-Earth Object Observations Program, commonly called “Spaceguard,” discovers these objects, characterizes a subset of them and identifies their orbits to determine if any could be potentially hazardous to the planet.JPL manages the Near-Earth Object Program Office for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. JPL is a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.last_img read more

Womens Tennis Is Finally Getting Young Again

This represents a sharp downturn from most of the previous decade. The average age of WTA winners floated between 25.8 and 26.1 between 2013 and 2016. But it also serves as a return to normalcy for women’s tennis, which had long been dominated by youth: The average age of WTA tour players in 1990 was 20.9, as 21-year-old Steffi Graf and 17-year-old Monica Seles finished the season ranked first and second. That average age would not rise above 23.5 for nearly two decades.The amount of young talent is enormous again. And impatient. Since Serena Williams won her last major at the Australian Open in 2017, only one other Slam winner has been at least 30 years old: Angelique Kerber, who won Wimbledon at age 30 last year. The winners of the other seven majors: Osaka, who won the 2018 U.S. Open at age 20 and the 2019 Australian at 21; Jelena Ostapenko, who won the 2017 French at 20; Garbiñe Muguruza, age 23 when she won the 2017 Wimbledon;1Muguruza also won the 2016 French Open. Sloane Stephens, who won the U.S. Open at 24; Simona Halep, who won the French Open last year at age 26; and Caroline Wozniacki, the 2018 Australia Open winner at age 27.Part of this may be cyclical. As clusters of young, talented players emerge, a generation of older players who exceeded the normal life expectancy of a tennis career is nearing its end — and we aren’t just talking about the Williams sisters, who are now 37 and 38 years old. Francesca Schiavone, 38, won the French Open in 2010 but retired last September. Roberta Vinci, 36, shocked the world at the 2015 U.S. Open when she beat Serena Williams, who was two wins away from a golden Slam, but Vinci retired in May 2018. Agnieszka Radwanska, 30, who lost the Wimbledon final in 2012, called it quits in November.Other players might not last that long, either. Samantha Stosur, 35, is in great shape and is an expert in doubles, but she struggles in singles. After next year’s Olympics, 30-year-old Dominika Cibulkova could decide to leave the game, too. Maria Sharapova, 32, has missed most of this season with injury. Victoria Azarenka, 29, is back after struggling since she had a child, but she might never be as powerful as she was in 2013.After she lost a doubles match this year in Paris, Lucie Safarova announced she had retired from tennis. Now age 32, Safarova had played in Slams since 2005. She never won a major singles title, but she came close at the 2015 French Open, when she lost to Serena Williams in three entertaining sets. Safarova also won five doubles majors with Bethanie Mattek-Sands, including two in Roland-Garros.“I think that it’s great that the competition is so strong,” Safarova said. “And we have, I think, at least 100 players now are amazing competitors. And you just have to be strong and play your 100 percent to be able to be here.”On Saturday, Barty and Vondroušová will likely be nervous, as is usually the case for players in a Grand Slam final. But their youth — and their passion — is what this age of tennis is all about. In the French Open final, 19-year-old Markéta Vondroušová, who dazzles with drop shots, will face off with Ashleigh Barty, 23, who is crafty and quick with a ton of energy. Amanda Anisimova, 17, reached the semis by hitting smooth strokes and bullets all day long. And world No. 1 Naomi Osaka lost early in Paris but claimed two Grand Slam titles by the age of 21.Women’s tennis is, at long last, getting young.The average age of players who have won at least one WTA title this year is 23.6 years old. That’s the lowest age since 2008 — and it will drop even further after Saturday. At the French Open this year, the final eight women in the event were no older than 28. read more

As far as my appearance in the game, I think it’s pretty spot on. They could have made me a little more jacked, that would have been more realistic. My muscles are a little smaller in the game than they are in real life so I’m a little upset about that but as far as from an entrance perspective and gameplay, wow, it’s just breathtaking.”On getting cheered by audiences:“I don’t think I’m a category. I can’t be put in a category just because I don’t feel like there’s good people and bad people in real life. I think there’s good people who do bad things and bad people who do good things. There’s no such thing as good and bad. There’s just this collage of humanity that society has portrayed. You dress like this when you’re in front of people but behind closed doors, who knows who you really are.”On the past year in the WWE:“It’s been tremendous but it’s not enough. It’s never enough. So it’s like the tenacity to move forward and jeep moving forward. And the things I have planned that are coming up are going to be alarming for the rest of the world, the free world.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipVin Diesel and John Cena share ‘intense’ sceneVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 1:05/Current Time 0:04Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -1:01 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

That side of what these superstars do to become NXT superstars and to WWE superstars and to WrestleMania.”On being the head trainer and working with NXT talent:“I love this company. This is fun. We get to come here and challenge ourselves every day with up to 70 men and women at any time and challenge each other to be better and to make a statement. There’s a sign over there: you’re not here to fill a spot, you’re here to take a spot. That’s fun when you’re challenging your own team for more. We challenge the main roster on a weekly basis. We’re letting John Cena know. We’re letting Randy (Orton) know. We’re letting Roman (Reigns) know … you came from here and we’re right behind you. I have a smile on my face because we let everyone know. Triple H challenges us to find the next one and how do we make it better and give everyone an opportunity. That’s a cool challenge. Not a job, it’s a challenge.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipIs WWE Losing Its Audience?Video Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:29/Current Time 0:04Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -0:25 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
