first_imgMumbai: Filmmaker Rohit Shetty on Tuesday said he has definite plans to make a female cop film to complete his Singham universe, which chronicles stories of police personnel. Shetty’s follow-up to his hit Singham was 2018’s Ranveer Singh-starrer Simmba, which was part of a multi-film universe that the director has in mind. The next film in this universe is Akshay Kumar-fronted Sooryavanshi. Asked if he plans to make a female cop film, Shetty told reporters, “Soon we will be making it. We have a story in mind. We will definitely do it. We need to take a year or so, but we plan to do that to complete the universe.” The director was speaking at an event. Shetty, who has delivered consecutive blockbusters and is known for making larger-than-life massy films, said he got the idea to start a universe while watching Hollywood superhero projects like Avengers. “Whatever happens in Hollywood, happens here 10 years down the line. That’s always been the theory. When I was watching the Avengers series, I got an idea that ‘why don’t we create a universe?’ Also Read – Hilarie Burton, Jeffery Dean Morgan tie the knot”Obviously, we don’t have the kind of budget to make so many superhero films year after year. Then I thought to make a cop universe from Simmba onward,” he said. The filmmaker said as the concept of creating a universe was novel for the Indian audience, he was initially nervous about the plunge. “I was scared before the release as this was happening for the first time in our country. I knew that youngsters and kids will (understand), because they have Avengers, but our mature audience hasn’t seen that. I had doubts merging two worlds but it worked big time.”last_img read more

Rabat – Morocco’s Foreign Ministry on Monday strongly condemned the attacks on the Saudi embassy in Tehran and its consulate in Mashhad.“These acts are inconsistent with diplomatic norms and practices,” Foreign Minister Salaheddine Mezouar told the press, calling on the Islamic Republic of Iran to “abide by international obligations in this regard to guarantee the protection of diplomatic missions and their staff.”He also expressed Morocco’s “continued solidarity” with brotherly Saudi Arabia, reiterating the kingdom’s call to restore calm and prevent any dangerous escalation in an already troubled regional context. On Sunday, Rabat said that it “follows with great attention” the violence that broke out in Saudi Arabia and Iran, after the execution of Shia cleric Nimr Baquir al-Nimr on Saturday.Following the demonstrations in Saudi Arabia and Iran denouncing the beheading of al-Nimr and other individuals “tried for terrorist acts and undermining state security,” Morocco follows with “great attention” the developments and “fears that the current excesses will take an unmanageable dimension in the hours and days to come,” Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation said in a statement.“Morocco is counting on the wisdom of the Saudi and Iranian officials to prevent the current situation from spreading to other countries in the region already facing many challenges and multiple elements of fragility,” the ministry added.MWN with MAP read more

Rabat – Unemployment is the first reason pushing the Tadla-Azilal migrants to leave Morocco, choosing to migrate in South and Central Europe for better living conditions and job opportunities, the High Commission for Planning (HCP) said in a study published on the occasion of the national day for Moroccans living abroad (MRE).The Tadla-Azilal emigrants’ favorite destination is Spain, with 48 percent choosing to move to Morocco’s northern neighbor, followed by Italy, with 32 percent, according to the HCP. France comes in third place with only 11 percent, points out the Commission, adding that in recent years, there has been a growing diversity in destinations, with MREs increasingly migrating to Japan, Canada, Senegal, and Russia.According to the HCP, 84 percent of the emigrants went to a single country. Nevertheless, with the rise in age, more of them have gone to more than two countries of emigration. The hierarchy of host countries has changed greatly over time, between the emigrants’ country of arrival and their current country of residence. Thus, France is in a marginal position that is slowly ”crumbling,” notes the HCP. Spain is receding as a host country while Italy is progressing, as new horizons appear on the migration scene: Belgium, Germany, and Portugal.Spain and Italy present dissimilar cases. These two countries have been severely affected by the economic crisis, which began to be rampant at the end of 2007. Moroccan emigrants from Tadla-Azilal in Spain lost jobs in the Spanish formal sector, which prompted them to leave. On the other hand, they were able, as best they could, to keep jobs in the informal sector in Italy and thus were less constrained at first.Since 2000, three-quarters of emigrants from the Tadla-Azilal region have been working in the agriculture sector.Other popular occupations include working as craftsmen, skilled workers, and laborers, while the study noted that professions in the formal sector are “very rare” among the migrants. About 27 percent of emigrants did not report a declared activity during the three months prior to their trip, a higher proportion among older people, the study said.Unsurprisingly, unemployment remains the leading cause of emigration in this region, according to 26 percent of the MREs. It is followed by low income and improved living standards. Among the youngest, education remains a good reason to emigrate according to 16 percent of MREs, whereas family reunification often pushes women to take the plunge.The MREs are overwhelmingly male (77 percent), with 30-39 year olds representing 43 percent against 27 percent for 15-29 year olds and less than 9 percent for those over 50 years old.Contrary to what one might think, transfers from MREs in the Tadla-Azilal region “are relatively modest,” says the HCP. Only 20 percent of households received more than MAD 4,000 per year from an MRE relative.This could be explained by the economic situation prevailing in some host countries in recent years. Currently, few MREs in the region are transferring money to their families. “The proportion is low both for young people aged 15-29 years (29 percent) and for those aged 60 years and older (31 percent),” the HCP said.Even in full working age (30-39 years), only 43 percent make transfers, compared with 36 percent among 40-49 year olds, while the proportion remains higher among those aged 50-59 with 42 percent. read more

According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), since the closure of Australia’s “offshore processing” facility on the island on 31 October, approximately 800 refugees and asylum seekers still remain in highly unsafe conditions. “Over the past four weeks, at least five security incidents have been reported by refugees and asylum seekers, security personnel, local police, and members of the local community,” Cécile Pouilly, a spokesperson for UNHCR, told a news briefing in Geneva. The most serious incident occurred on the night of 10 December, when three people armed with machetes and an axe attempted to force their way into West Lorengau Haus settlement, where 150 refugees and asylum seekers were being accommodated, she said, noting that the group was ultimately stopped from causing serious harm by security staff.However, the same group then walked to nearby Hillside Haus settlement where two of them, armed with a baton and a knife, entered unobstructed by security staff, and yelled that refugees and asylum seekers should leave. “The forced removal of refugees and asylum seekers on 22 November from the now decommissioned Australian facility has inflicted further trauma on people who have already suffered greatly – violence and persecution in their own country followed by four years in detention on Manus Island,” added the UNHCR spokesperson. At the same time, the medical condition of the refugees and asylum seekers is also worrying. According to a recent medical report commissioned by UNHCR, their physical and mental health is deteriorating and there is growing risk of violence and self-harm due to the cumulative effect of uncertainty about the future, lack of solutions, stopping of vital services, poor living and hygiene conditions and inadequate health care. The report also noted the obvious strain that is being placed on the host community and local resources, especially on the health system and hospital. read more

Cost, experience and availability are the biggest challenges parents face when trying to find a tutor for their children. But a new program launched by Brock University Concurrent Education students aims to fix that.Designed for students in Grades 1 to 8, the Elementary School Homework Help program organized the Concurrent Education Student Association (CESA) is already seeing early success and positive reviews.Initiated by the overwhelming desire of CESA members to gain valuable one-on-one experience with children, the idea of tutoring was an ideal fit.There have been lots of moving parts to get things started,” said Tayler Villamere, Vice-President Finance and Administration for CESA. “At the end of last year, the executive team was interviewing potential members and asked about opportunities ConEd students hope to have. Across the board it was ‘spend more time with kids.’ They wanted to use skills they’ve learned and be with kids and help them in any aspect, so this is what we came up with.”The program is a free service designed to mutually benefit young students and their parents, as well as the volunteers who see it as a great opportunity to get more practical experience.“Parents like the idea that we’re teachers in training. I think they felt more comfortable knowing that our experiences are current and that we’re trained in the field of education” said Villamere.Held on Wednesday evenings, the Homework Help sessions require no official registration or commitment.“It’s just a drop in, so you can just show up for 15 mins or two hours — whatever fits your schedule,” said Nathalie Jackson, Volunteer Coordinator. “It’s a basic program and students can come in with any of their problems – a simple problem or a 10-page review for a test – and we’re equipped and excited to work with the kids.”The program shows Brock’s Concurrent Education students are devoted to their passion of teaching and are willing to take time out of their busy schedules to help children in need of tutoring.“I think ConEd is such a wonderful, unique program that is growing and dynamic. All the students we have coming into the program really want to make our association bigger and better, and provide more opportunities to make a difference here at Brock,” said Villamere. “Personally I think it’s such a rewarding thing to see people so like-minded enjoy the things you’ve put out there.”The program aims to provide the best results by matching volunteers with children in their particular stream who need assistance with those volunteer’s teachable subjects.“We want to make it accessible to everyone, we want to make sure every student has the opportunity to learn and grow,” Villamere said.For more information about Homework Help please contact CESA via at info@brockconed.com. read more

Soledad O’Brien‘s congratulatory tweet to Haitian-Japanese tennis champ Naomi Osaka left critics reeling after the journalist pointed out that there are now TWO Black women competing in the 2018 US Open finals.Osaka, who advanced to the finals after defeating American Madison Keys on Thursday, will now face off against 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams. According to the BBC, the 21-year-old, who is of Haitian and Japanese descent, is the first ever Japanese or Haitian woman to reach a grand slam final.Twitter screenshot.“Message to Serena: ‘I love you,’” O’Brien wrote. “Naomi Osaka is so awesome … and now we’ve got 2 Black ladies in the final.”Her tweet drew backlash from conservatives who refused to see the significance of two Black women, or women of color in general, competing for the grand slam title.“This comment is so racist,” one critic wrote. “Blacks r racist than whites, I keep saying. Imagine a white person celebrating an all white final …”“Why does it have to be 2 ‘black’ ladies,” another chimed in. “Why can’t it be 2 great tennis players?”Others chided O’Brien for excluding the fact that Osaka is also Japanese.“If you want to put importance on race cool that’s you, but please be all inclusive and accurate,” someone tweeted.Meanwhile, another critic warned, “Be careful, we don’t know if Osaka identifies a Black. Remember Madison Keys (who’s biracial) didn’t like that distinction … lol. I’m just saying, we have to let people identify how they want to. But if she does, then yes, we have two Black ladies in the finals! YAY!”Osaka and Williams will compete for the 2018 Grand Slam title in New York on Sunday.When asked how she felt during her match with Keys, Osaka replied, “This is going to sound really bad … but I was just thinking – I really wanted to play Serena…Because she’s Serena.” read more

first_img“The Daytime world never takes the time to ponder what’s going on while it sleeps. Never has time to study the fact that over half of all living creatures on the planet live in the dark. Creatures that may go their entire lives, never seeing the sun. While the rest of the world dreams; The Nocturnals rule the night.”These words have stuck with me ever since I opened my first Nocturnals comic (entitled Black Planet) almost two decades ago. Out of the hundreds of comics on the wall, I remember this book really pulling me in. The hauntingly beautiful art by Dan Brereton on the cover was a monster fans dream. I was instantly sold when I opened up the issue to discover that Dan not only did the cover work; but that he brought the same amazing acrylic and water color style inside to every panel! The series is also written and created by Brereton. The creator has worked with all the big boys in the industry including Marvel and DC, but The Nocturnals are truly home for him. A world in which he can play around in. I always describe the series as that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when it’s Halloween night, only captured between pages.It has been nine years since the release of Carnival of Beasts that we have had the opportunity to revisit The Nocturnals. Luckily after a handful of successful kickstarted projects, Brereton unleashed the ghoulishly pulp-infused world of Doc Horror and the gang on us once again with The Sinister Path. The book has doubled it’s funding goal of $30,000 on the site and paved the way for even more goodies to come with the upcoming In the Night Studio art book he has also been working on. Here is a quick excerpt from the issue…“Evening’s ability to attract and communicate with spirits has been part of her as long as she can remember. Now Eve has begun to attract an element of the spirit word she’s totally unprepared for as alien phantasms from the nether realm terrorize her as she sleeps. While attempting to make sense of these unwanted new abilities, Eve comes into possession of “Jammybottoms,” a doll unlike any in her collection of possessed poppets. As Eve discovers the unsettling connection between her night terrors and the new doll, Doc Horror investigates the bowels of a haunted Victorian estate, making an awful discovery could spell their doom.”Nocturnals: The Sinister Path released this past Wednesday and is a dream come true for fans of the series! The gang is mostly all here, and we get to see the best sides of all of them. I was sad, however, that Komodo was left out. But when you have so many members in the ever growing haunted Avengers team, sometimes it’s okay to let players who already had major story arks hang back for a bit. This gives the book more time to focus on some of our favorites. For instance, Halloween Girl and Gunwitch; two of the most beloved characters from the series. I love the time we spend with Eve as she is in inner turmoil with herself and her ever growing powers, chatting about them with her dolls and Polychrome. It is these simple moments, tied together with the pulp-crime action that truly makes Nocturnals stand on its own. In Sinister Path, Doc Horror and the crew have to investigate Judge Xindle Hemlock’s mansion. The exteriors along with the interiors are something you’d see walking through The Addams Family mansion. Brereton does an amazing job when it comes to lighting within these panels, and the reflections and shadows within the manor are simply breath taking.As the story develops, we are introduced to a few more monstrous characters who have just as much hidden charm about them as the Nocturnals themselves. Only some of these creatures want to do more than just play. As I stated before, if you are a fan of the series already, this book is the creeptastic essence of everything that makes The Nocturnals special. If you are new to the series, Sinister Path is still a great launching point for you, and I promise will get to check out the ever enticing backlog. You can purchase the physical book here or digitally at Comixology.Just don’t be surprised when you start pulling out those fall decorations and lighting your Halloween candles early. It’s all part of being a Nocturnals fan.View as: One Page Slides1/41. 2. 3. 4. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

first_imgAlaska Permanent Fund Corporation sign at headquarters in March 2016. House majority members want to enshrine Permanent Fund dividends in the state constitution. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Members of the House majority have introduced legislation to enshrine Permanent Fund dividends into the Alaska Constitution. Dividends would be at least $1,250 each year.Listen nowThe Alaska Permanent Fund became a part of the constitution in 1976. Permanent Fund dividends were started through state law five years later and were never made a part of the constitution.That could change under House Joint Resolution 23, which Anchorage Democratic Rep. Chris Tuck introduced on Friday. The bill would allow the state to draw up to 5 percent of the Permanent Fund’s value from its earnings every year. A third of that would go toward dividends, with the other two-thirds going to fund state government.“It does put a cap on how much government can spend, because you’re not going to be able to dip into the earnings reserve anything more than what the resolution guarantees,” Tuck said.Fellow Anchorage Democrat Les Gara said differences between the House and Senate majorities have led him to believe that making PFDs part of the constitution is the right move.In particular, he’s concerned that compared with a House bill, Senate legislation would allow oil and gas companies to lower the taxes they’ll have to pay in the future by more than $1 billion more by 2027.“We’re worried that if they keep giving away that kind of money to oil companies, they’re going to keep pressuring the dividend down,” Gara said.Senators have said the lower tax liability encourages oil and gas companies to invest in the state and will lead to more production.Gov. Bill Walker proposed a bill to draw money from Permanent Fund earnings to pay for state government that would lead to $1,000 dividends. The Senate passed the bill, adding a limit on the amount of state spending.The House version of the bill stripped out the spending limit and raised the dividend amount. It also required the Legislature to pass an income tax and increase oil and gas taxes for the Permanent Fund bill to go into effect.Tuck said he hopes passing the amendment will help the chambers reach an agreement on the Permanent Fund bill.Former lawmaker Clem Tillion leads a separate effort related to the PFDs. It aims to hold a referendum to repeal any change the Legislature makes this year to the Permanent Fund. Tuck hopes the amendment will end the referendum attempt.“Well, hopefully when they see that we’re acting to protect the Permanent Fund dividend at our level that we have right now, they will back off on that,” Tuck said.If two-thirds of each body passes the amendment, voters would consider it in November 2018. A majority is required is adopt an amendment.last_img read more

first_img X Share It’s what some are calling the “Aggie Highway.” The toll road would have one lane in each direction, with the option of building additional lanes in the future. And there’s a five-mile segment near Navasota that would have frontage roads that are not tolled.The $170 million project is getting a lot of opposition from residents. David Tullos with the Grimes Citizen Advisory Group says he’s worried it will split their rural county in two. Tullos says what concerns him is that the initial phase of the project doesn’t include connector ramps at a couple of major intersections.“So that will completely stifle any potential development along the toll road corridor,” says Tullos. “So in effect, you will create dead zones within Grimes County with no opportunity for future development.”But Navasota Mayor Bert Miller likes the plan. He says the toll road would bring in more business and it would also help people who live in the region.‘We have quite a few folks that do commute to the Tomball-Houston area, and also ones who live in those areas and travel here for work,” adds Miller.There will be a public hearing on the project Thursday night, June 30 at Navasota Junior High School.

first_imgThe life of Mary Stuart, better known as Mary, Queen of Scots, was a stormy one. Mary was the queen of Scotland for more than two decades, but after she was suspected of having arranged to do away with her abusive husband and then marrying the doer of the deed, she was forced to abdicate and everything began to fall apart. Afterwards when she fled to England to seek the support of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth of England, she ended up making a mortal enemy instead of gaining an ally. But first the backstory.Portrait of Mary, after François Clouet, c. 1559Mary and Elizabeth’s relationship, far from one of familial support or royal alliance, became one of protracted viciousness which culminated in the imprisonment and demise of Mary at her cousin’s order.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsTheir stormy relationship was, surprisingly, carried on without the two women ever actually coming into each other’s presence; their feud was carried out entirely through letters, and through the dark machinations of politics.Queen Elizabeth I of England by an Unknown Artist, 16th centuryIt didn’t help that at the start of her career, Mary had a legitimate claim to succeed to the throne of England after Elizabeth. Mary asked Elizabeth to confirm her as successor, but Elizabeth – wisely, one would think – decided that this would not be a good idea. Instead she stated: “If it became certainly known in the world who should succeed me, I would never think myself in sufficient security.”If Mary had been named and confirmed successor, Elizabeth would have made herself a target for those who wanted Mary to come into her inheritance sooner!Mary, Queen of ScotsDespite refusing to name her as successor, Elizabeth still saw Mary as a threat, and to counter this threat she decided to put someone she trusted as close to Mary as she could.To this end, when Mary’s husband died, Elizabeth pushed for Mary to marry Sir Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester. Elizabeth herself declared, “The Earl of Leicester is my brother and best friend. I would have married him myself, but I have decided to remain a virgin. I therefore heartily recommend the Earl to my cousin of Scotland. In fact, if she married Leicester, I would even look favourably on her claim to the English Succession.”Lord Robert Dudley c. 1560This might have seemed like a favorable arrangement, but the rumor was that Elizabeth and Dudley’s relationship was not as pure as Elizabeth would have had people think; they were rumored to be lovers.It seems that Elizabeth wanted Dudley to marry Mary because she would then have had an entirely reliable source of intelligence as close to her rival’s court as it was possible to be, and probably a great deal of influence. Not surprisingly, Mary rejected this proposition, marrying her cousin, Lord Darnley, instead. This proved to be a mistake.Elizabeth and her favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, c. 1575Darnley proved himself an abusive lover of the bottle, and perished in highly suspicious circumstances a few years later. Mary then promptly married the man who was implicated in this act, which brought about her forced abdication and the beginning of her downfall.Perhaps she would have been better to take up Elizabeth’s offer? It turns out that throughout this debacle Elizabeth repeatedly wrote to Mary warning her against Lord Darnley. In hindsight, history might have been quite different if Mary had heeded her cousin’s warning.Mary with her second husband, Lord DarnleyAfter Lord Darnley’s suspicious end, the Lords of Scotland forced Mary’s abdication and cast her into prison. She escaped, however, and fled to England, because her cousin Elizabeth had written to her promising aid. When Mary arrived in England, however, she found that the promised help was not forthcoming. Instead, Elizabeth just stopped answering her letters. Mary wrote pleading to her cousin, trying gifts and even threats, but ended up being imprisoned in turn by Elizabeth.Mary depicted with her son, James VI (of Scotland) and I (of England and Ireland) – in reality, Mary saw her son for the last time when he was ten months oldDuring the imprisonment the relationship between the two women understandably deteriorated. Repeated attempts at rebellion against Elizabeth were made by groups of English noblemen in Mary’s name. One of these – the Babington plot – ended up being Mary’s downfall.Mary wrote a letter in which she strongly expressed her support for the plot, but the letter was intercepted and eventually lead to Elizabeth’s trying and executing Mary for treason. Mary was in prison for 19 years, and this meant that her son, James, did not ever know his mother. He remained in Scotland as King James IV until his accession in 1603. He had four different regents until he reached the age of 18.Drawing of the trial of Mary, Queen of Scots, 14–15 October 1586Eventually, after 19 years, the exposure of the Babington plot forced Elizabeth to call for Mary’s execution. It may seem surprising that after such a long running rivalry Elizabeth would not have taken this option sooner, but it must be remembered that in those days the rule of royals was seen as the directly expressed will of God.Related video: Old Forgotten English Words That Need a ComebackAs such, for one legitimate ruler to execute another was seen as regicide and could have been seen as defying divine will. These were things no ruler wanted to be associated with; it was bound to cause disruption and discontent. However, Elizabeth had no choice, and having put off the decision for nearly two decades she finally ordered Mary to be tried for treason.Queen Elizabeth I of England by an Unknown Artist, c. 1610Mary, Queen of Scots, lost her head on February 8, 1587 at Fotheringhay Castle at the age of 44. But that was not the end of their rivalry. It was said that when Mary received news of her impending execution, she welcomed the approach of it, and loudly claimed her innocence of any crime of treason.Copy of Mary’s effigy. The original, by Cornelius Cure, is in Westminster Abbey. Photo by Kim Traynor CC BY-SA 3.0She was executed nonetheless, but her fate haunted Elizabeth. It was said that Queen Elizabeth had visions of Mary as she lay upon her own deathbed, and was said to have wept and repented of her cousin’s demise.Read another story from us: The Dramatic Love Story of Queen Elizabeth I and Her Favorite Robert DudleyIn a final ironic twist to this lifelong tale of rivalry, after Elizabeth died she ended up being succeeded by Mary’s son James, who ruled both Kingdoms until his death in March, 1625.Correction: In the original article we misstated that Mary’s son James was brought to the court of Elizabeth and even called her “mother”.
