first_imgWhen Avengers: Endgame hits theatres today, it will mark the culmination of Marvel and Disney’s 11-year, 22-movie campaign aimed to utterly dominate the blockbuster box office industry. And it has been an incredibly successful campaign. But how did these types of movies (and yes, D.C. films count, too) come to so successfully dominate an entire industry, to the point that more than half of a given year’s top 10 box office earners are now superhero films? And will the general public ever get tired of them?Norm Wilner has been watching and writing about movies since superhero flicks were rare and generally bad. What changed? How does the superhero formula manipulate an audience into watching similar movies 4-6 times per year? If the latest and greatest is terrible, would it change anything?

first_imgIn honor of Earth Day on April 22, Colgate is proud to announce that one of the most decorated athletes of all-time, swimmer Michael Phelps, is joining the company’s water conservation awareness effort as global ambassador.As Colgate continues its ongoing partnership with The Nature Conservancy, a leading conservation organization to restore waterways in the U.S. and educate people about the importance of water, Michael Phelps will help raise awareness for the ‘Save Water’ program and inspire the next generation to take action.Colgate is found in more than two-thirds of households around the world, more than any other brand, according to Kantar research, and nearly all Colgate products require consumer water use. By leaving the faucet on, the average American can waste up to four gallons of potable drinking water while brushing his or her teeth for two minutes. Together with Michael Phelps and The Nature Conservancy, Colgate’s 2017 mission is to reach 100 million people and inspire 10 million children to turn off the faucet while brushing, because every drop counts. If embraced broadly, this simple habit can be a powerful act of water and energy conservation.“Water is the earth’s most precious resource, but without realizing it we often take it for granted,” Phelps said. “I’m committed to joining Colgate’s efforts to save water and encouraging the next generation to turn off the faucet. Our son Boomer turns one next month, so he isn’t brushing on his own quite yet, but we’ll teach him to as soon as he does!”As someone world-renowned for his connection to water, Phelps is proud to join Colgate as the global ambassador in this water conservation awareness initiative, appropriately kicking off during Earth Month. This summer, Phelps will introduce three short-form documentaries that convey water issues in the U.S., and rally his and his family’s followers on social media to spread this important message that every drop counts. Colgate will also share this message with children, teachers and families through its award-winning Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures oral health education program.“Colgate is committed to making every drop of water count,” said Lori Michelin, vice president of sustainability & EHS at Colgate-Palmolive. “We work consistently to reduce our water-use footprint and have avoided enough water consumption in manufacturing to fill nearly 20,000 competition-sized swimming pools since 2002. That said, 90 percent of Colgate’s current water-use footprint comes from consumer use of our products, so we’re asking everyone to help.”In addition to turning off the faucet while brushing, individuals can spread awareness using #EveryDropCounts on social media and by learning more here.last_img read more


first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A local woman is hosting a fundraiser for the family of 4-year-old Natalie Small in Cecil Lake this weekend.Last December, Small was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblasma and has been at B.C. Children’s Hospital undergoing chemotherapy ever since. Natalie’s parents have since been making many round trips to care for her while she’s in hospital, while also caring for her siblings back home.Local resident Stacy Tindill says she doesn’t know the Small family, but has reached out to tell them about the fundraiser, which is taking place at the Cecil Lake Community Hall this Saturday. Tindill said that the Community Hall and Canteen have been donated for the event, which she said is being put on as a winter farmer’s market with vendors and a silent auction. Tindill said she was inspired to keep helping the Small family with their travel expenses after seeing so many members of the community come out to raise money for her in February. She added that vendor tables are still available, and is also looking for items to be donated to the silent auction.For more information about the fundraiser, visit the Facebook event page: read more


Rabat –  The official visit, which HM King Mohammed VI will pay starting Wednesday to China, heralds a new era of cooperation between Rabat and Beijing and will strengthen the strategic, comprehensive and exemplary partnership between the two countries, said Chinese Ambassador to Morocco Sun Shuzhong.“Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Morocco in 1958, the two countries have always had good relations of cooperation and friendship,” said the Chinese diplomat in an interview with MAP ahead of King Mohammed VI’s visit to China, scheduled to take place on May 11.The Chinese ambassador called for strengthening cooperation between the two countries, recalling that the two sides share a long history of friendship and understanding for each other’s characteristics. “Mutual understanding is a prerequisite to mobilize all cooperation factors: investment, trade and transfer of technology,” he said.Sun called for the promotion of cultural exchanges, especially among young people, saying that his country has set up two “Confucius” institutes in Morocco and a Chinese Center, which is still under construction.With MAP read more


“Like never before, the world needs your leadership. The world needs your strong, effective, outspoken parliaments,” Mr. Ban said in remarks to the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) World Conference of Speakers of Parliament, taking place in Geneva.“You may have varying powers and ambitions but you are the true backbone of democracy. You make the laws. By your very diversity, you are the voice of the people,” he added. The Secretary-General noted that since the group last met five years ago, the world has been shaken by crises in the areas of finance and food, as well as ongoing conflicts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Sudan, natural disasters, most recently in Haiti, and the menaces of nuclear weapons proliferation, terrorism and transnational organized crime. He said the leadership of the world’s elected lawmakers is needed in four areas. “First, it is you who must act on the great challenges of our times. It is you again who must ratify treaties on climate change, nuclear non-proliferation, economic development… and much else.“And again, it is you, the parliamentarians, who must fund these commitments. It is you who must remind governments of their international obligations,” he stated. Secondly, Mr. Ban emphasized that parliaments can and should be a force for stability, noting that democracies rarely wage war against each other and that civil wars break out less frequently in well-established democracies. “Parliaments help to resolve ethnic, religious and economic tensions. They reinforce justice and the rule of law. They can help advance the interests of women and minority groups.” Parliaments are also essential in advancing development and creating prosperity, he stated, which is particularly important as the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – global targets to reduce poverty, hunger and ill-health – is only five years away.“We have made progress, but we must step up the pace,” said the Secretary-General, who will convene a high-level summit in September in New York to advance progress on the Goals.He added that parliaments can write the laws and invest in programmes that will achieve the MDGs. “You are on the front lines, fighting for your people for basic services like safe water and sanitation, primary education and health care.“It is again up to you to mobilize and prepare your governments for our final push towards the Goals,” he said.Mr. Ban also highlighted the leadership needed from parliaments on the issue of nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, an area that has recently seen some signs of progress, including the conclusion of a new arms reduction treaty between the United States and Russia. “With these building blocks, we are inching closer to a world free of nuclear weapons. But much more needs to be done,” said the UN chief, voicing his hope that the 2nd Nuclear Security Summit to be held in 2012 in the Republic of Korea, his home country, will be a great success in helping realize the goal of a world free of nuclear weapons.He also cited the need for urgent progress towards the entry into force of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), as well as to revitalize the Conference on Disarmament – the world’s sole multilateral disarmament negotiating forum.In addition, Mr. Ban expressed his concern at recent reversals in democracy, including many cases of unconstitutional changes of government, in Africa and elsewhere, which puts hard-won development gains at risk and breeds instability. “Constitutional rule is not always shattered in a single blow. It can suffer death by a thousand cuts, as when governments manipulate constitutional, political and electoral processes to extend their term in office,” he stated.International criminal networks pose yet another threat to the rule of law, he added, noting that they spread corruption, compromise elections and damage the legitimate economy.“Such threats remind us that there is nothing inevitable about democratic development. It comes through hard work, vision, leadership… and sustained effort. “People rightly look to the United Nations to help,” he said. “They look to us to help democracy, to recover from war, to help uphold the rule of law and to shine a spotlight on shortcomings and outright abuses.“But above all, people look to you, their chosen and elected parliamentarians. You are part of a universal democratic ideal. You are proof that democracy is not a model imposed by one part of the world on another, you are evidence that democracy is a yearning shared and voiced by people the world over.”The Secretary-General met with a number of officials on the sidelines of the meeting, including Ali Larijani, Speaker of Iran’s Parliament, with whom he discussed the country’s nuclear issue, combating terrorism and drug trafficking, and the situations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Gaza. Last month the Security Council imposed a fourth round of UN sanctions against Iran, while demanding that the country suspend its enrichment activities and peacefully resolve outstanding concerns over the nature of its nuclear programme, which Tehran has stated is for peaceful purposes but some other countries contend is driven by military ambitions.Mr. Ban “stressed the importance of an early resolution to this issue, through dialogue and full compliance with all relevant Security Council resolutions,” said his spokesperson, Martin Nesirky. 19 July 2010The world’s elected parliamentarians can play a leading role in tackling some of today’s global crises and challenges, including unconstitutional changes of government and threats to the rule of law, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stressed today. read more


Jean-Christian Cady, deputy head of UNMIK, told the Kosovo Interim Administrative Council (IAC) that the returns could take place as early as March. There are presently 162 Kosovo Albanian detainees in the Serbian prisons.Mr. Cady, who heads a branch of UNMIK dealing with police and justice issues, known as Pillar 1, said that the Belgrade authorities had already handed over to the Mission a large number of the detainees’ files. After studying these files, he would determine which detainees were political prisoners and could be released on their transfer to UN control, and which should continue to serve out their sentence in Kosovo prisons. According to Mr. Cady, the Serb approach in discussions about these transfers was very positive. Briefing the IAC on the situation regarding voluntary returns of the displaced and refugees to Kosovo, UNMIK officials explained that the return programme was entirely voluntary and that economic prospects for the returnees were an important aspect of UN efforts. read more

first_img Share your voice Comments Tags Samsung “The ACCC alleges Samsung’s advertisements falsely and misleadingly represented Galaxy phones would be suitable for use in, or for exposure to, all types of water, including in ocean water and swimming pools, and would not be affected by such exposure to water for the life of the phone, when this was not the case,” ACCC Chair Rod Sims said.”Samsung showed the Galaxy phones used in situations they shouldn’t be to attract customers,” Mr Sims said.For its part, Samsung says it has noted ACCC’s accusations and plans to defend itself in court.”Samsung stands by its marketing and advertising of the water resistancy of its smartphones,” the company said in a statement. “We are also confident that we provide customers with free-of-charge remedies in a manner consistent with Samsung’s obligations under its manufacturer warranty and the Australian Consumer Law. Customer satisfaction is a top priority for Samsung and we are committed to acting in the best interest of our customers.”  Now playing: Watch this: Samsung’s flagship phones have been advertised as IP68 water resistant since 2016. Josh Miller/CNET An Australian government watchdog agency is taking Samsung to court over claims that the company’s Galaxy phones are safe to take in the water.In 2016 Samsung released its first IP68 water-resistant phone, the Galaxy S7. All of the electronics giant’s flagship phones have since carried the IP68 certification for water resistance and have been advertised as water-friendly phones. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) says this amounts to false advertising.There are two key components to the ACCC’s issue with Samsung. First, Samsung’s advertising indicated that submerging a Galaxy phone under 1.5 meters (about 5 feet) of water for 30 minutes or less wouldn’t impact the device over the course of its lifetime. Second, Samsung advertised phones being used in beaches and pools, even though the IP68 certification only applies to fresh water. ACCC reviewed over 300 Samsung ads as the basis for its claims, it said.  IP68 certified phones are technically water-resistant, not waterproof, and specifically for depths up to 1.5 meters and for 30 minutes or under. IP67 phones, like 2014’s Galaxy S5, are resistant for 30 minutes or less for depths of 1 meter or less, but ACCC specifically referred to phones marketed from 2016 on. The ACCC claims that Samsung has rebuffed warranty claims by customers who say their phones were damaged by water exposure. The watchdog also notes that Samsung’s own website claims the Galaxy S10, its early-2019 flagship phone, is “not advised for beach or pool use.”  Phones Tech Industry 83 The Galaxy S10 is fantastic 5:14 Photos from the iPhone XR and Galaxy S10E 59 Photoslast_img read more

first_imgPauline Beebe was among the first to enter the Nunalleq Culture and Archaeology Center in Quinhagak on Saturday, August 11, 2018. (Photo by Katie Basile/KYUK)On Saturday, a large crowd of elders, scholars and artists gathered in Quinhagak to celebrate the opening of the Nunalleq Culture and Archaeology Center. Quinhagak’s new museum is home to 60,000 artifacts, the largest collection of pre-contact Yup’ik artifacts in the world. Its opening was the culmination of nine years of back-breaking work, and the result of a unique partnership between Quinhagak’s village corporation and archeologists.Listen now“I almost broke down,” Warren Jones said when asked about the museum opening. The CEO of Quinhagak’s Qanirtuuq Corporation, this project was in many ways his idea. The opening was emotional for him and many other residents who attended.Quinhagak elders had always known about the ancient village near their community, and residents chose to begin excavating it after much discussion in the late 2000s. The Qanirtuuq Corporation owns all of the artifacts that archaeologists have found there, and they’ve chosen to keep every single one of them in Quinhagak.“It’s our culture,” Jones said. “It’s priceless to us. And they will be here with us forever. When I’m gone, when we’re gone, they’ll be in the village. And future generations can come at any time and look at them, and never forget where they came from.”At the museum’s opening, Quinhagak children huddled with world-renowned mask-makers around the collection’s ancient dolls and ulus. According to University of Aberdeen archaeologist Rick Knecht, the dig’s summer volunteers find hundreds of artifacts a day at the Nunalleq site. Knecht says that he’s gotten very little sleep in the past few days. The museum’s opening didn’t quite feel real.“I think this is really the highlight of my professional career, what just happened,” Knecht said. “And of Warren [Jones’] too. And we looked at each other and shook hands. Because we’d done it.”The Nunalleq Culture and Archeology Center doesn’t have a curator yet, but it is taking some visitors. If you’re interested in flying to Quinhagak and seeing the collection, please contact Warren Jones at 907-556-8713.last_img read more

Facebook Fires Back at CoFounders Call to Break Up the Social Giant

first_img Former Oculus Head of Mobile VR Max Cohen Leaves Facebook Hughes, who has not worked at Facebook for more than decade, on Thursday called for the FTC and Department of Justice to force Facebook to spin off Instagram and WhatsApp and also to prohibit Facebook from making acquisitions for several years. “Mark Zuckerberg cannot fix Facebook, but our government can,” Hughes wrote.

He also said breaking up the company “won’t fix what’s wrong with social media.”“Facebook shouldn’t be broken up — but it does need to be held to account,” Clegg wrote. “Anyone worried about the challenges we face in an online world should look at getting the rules of the internet right, not dismantling successful American companies.” In addition, Hughes displays a “misunderstanding” of antitrust law, Clegg wrote. The purpose of those laws is to ensure consumers have access to low-cost, high-quality products and services, not to “punish a company because people disagree with its management.”Last month, Facebook disclosed that it expects to be hit with an FTC fine of up to $5 billion to settle allegations of the company’s violations of privacy regulations. Hughes argued that an FTC fine wouldn’t do anything to change Facebook’s behavior or diminish its power.Hughes is far from the first person to raise serious concerns about Facebook or to urge that it be broken up. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is angling for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, has proposed a plan to break up Facebook and other tech giants.center_img Facebook Reportedly Working on New Snapchat-Like Messaging App for Instagram Popular on Variety In his rebuttal, Clegg suggested that Facebook has become a major target for critics because it has become massive, with more than 2 billion users around the world. But, he opined, “Big in itself isn’t bad. Success should not be penalized.”Indeed, Clegg spun the company’s immense profits as allowing it to address the ills facing the social-media platform: “In Facebook’s case, our size has not only brought innovation, it has also allowed us to make a huge investment in protecting the safety and security of our services.”To Hughes, the concern is that Facebook has unchecked power to control the flow of information to literally billions of people. “The most problematic aspect of Facebook’s power is Mark’s unilateral control over speech. There is no precedent for his ability to monitor, organize and even censor the conversations of two billion people.”The right remedy for those concerns is more government oversight, Clegg wrote: “We are in the unusual position of asking for more regulation, not less.”Zuckerberg in March spelled out Facebook’s position, asking for new laws that govern how internet companies treat harmful content, election integrity, privacy and data portability. “In all these areas, we believe that governments should make the rules consistent with their own principles, not those of private companies like Facebook,” Clegg wrote in the op-ed.Clegg is the former U.K. deputy prime minister who joined Facebook last year after the resignation of longtime company exec Elliot Schrage in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.In his essay, Clegg asserted that Hughes’ allegation that Facebook wields monopoly power is wrong. Competitors he reeled off include Google’s YouTube, Snapchat, Twitter, Pinterest and TikTok, Apple’s iMessage, WeChat, Line and Microsoft’s Skype. He also said “most estimates” put Facebook’s share of the U.S. digital ad market at about 20%; research firm eMarketer most recently projected Facebook will own 22.1% of U.S. digital ad revenue in 2019 (versus 37.2% for Google).last_img read more
