Mumbai: Celebrated filmmaker Karan Johar says actores Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sonakshi Sinha and Alia Bhatt are all playing pivotal roles in his multi-starrer production Kalank. At the teaser launch of the film recently, Karan was asked about the thought behind introducing the female characters first. Karan explained: “We are brought into this world by women. I am raised by strong women and I would say that these three women characters are the heart, soul and spine of Kalank. So, their strength, beauty and intellect (is something) men could never match up.” According to Alia, the film, which also stars male actors like Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, among others, is a true ensemble film as “every character is primary”. Directed by Abhishek Verman, Kalank is releasing on April 17.
Washington DC: NASA’s Mars Helicopter, designed to fly in thin atmosphere and low gravity, has successfully completed flight tests and is prepared for its journey to the Red Planet scheduled to take off in 2020, the US space agency said. Weighing in at no more than 1.8 kilograms, the helicopter is a technology demonstration project currently going through the rigorous verification process certifying it for Mars. The majority of the testing the flight model is going through had to do with demonstrating how it can operate on Mars, including how it performs at Mars-like temperatures, NASA said in a statement.

The helicopter is scheduled to reach the surface of the Red Planet in February 2021, when the firmly nestled under the belly of the Mars 2020 rover. A few months later, it will be deployed and test flights will begin — the first from the surface of another world, NASA said. “Gearing up for that first flight on Mars, we have logged over 75 minutes of flying time with an engineering model, which was a close approximation of our helicopter,” said MiMi Aung, project manager for the Mars Helicopter at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the US.

We needed to see that it worked as advertised,” said Aung. While flying helicopters is commonplace here on Earth, flying hundreds of millions of kilometers away in the thin Martian atmosphere is something else entirely. Creating the right conditions for testing here on Earth presents its own set of challenges. “The Martian atmosphere is only about one per cent the density of Earth’s,” said Aung. “Our test flights could have similar atmospheric density here on Earth — if you put your airfield 30,480 meters up. So you can’t go somewhere and find that. You have to make it,” she said. The team created a vacuum that sucks out all the nitrogen, oxygen and other gases from the air inside the mammoth cylinder. In their place the team injected carbon dioxide, the chief ingredient of Mars’ atmosphere. “Getting our helicopter into an extremely thin atmosphere is only part of the challenge,” said Teddy Tzanetos, test conductor for the Mars Helicopter at JPL. “To truly simulate flying on Mars we have to take away two-thirds of Earth’s gravity, because Mars’ gravity is that much weaker,” said Tzanetos. The team accomplished this with a gravity offload system — a motorised lanyard attached to the top of the helicopter to provide an uninterrupted tug equivalent to two-thirds of Earth’s gravity. The Mars Helicopter’s first flight was followed up by a second in the vacuum chamber the following day. Logging a total of one minute of flight time at an altitude of five centimeters, more than 1,500 individual pieces of carbon fiber, flight-grade aluminum, silicon, copper, foil and foam have proven that they can work together as a cohesive unit.”The next time we fly, we fly on Mars,” said Aung. The Mars Helicopter will launch as a technology demonstrator with the Mars 2020 rover on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket in July 2020 from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. It is expected to reach Mars in February 2021.
Speaking at the annual General Debate, Abbas El Fassi said the Initiative for Negotiating an Autonomy Statute for the Saharan Region was proposed “in the aim to put an end to this artificial conflict and overcome the stalemate.”He added that the initiative has already been described as serious and credible by the Security Council and follows international negotiations and “a process of extensive national negotiations with the population of the Sahara region.”Mr. El Fassi stressed that Morocco remained strongly committed to the UN-backed negotiations with the Frente Polisario to find a solution to the conflict in Western Sahara “that is respectful of its national sovereignty, territorial integrity and where the autonomy applied to this region benefits its population.”He added that a solution to Western Sahara would also help bring a stronger and more integrated Arab Maghreb Union in North Africa.The UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) has been in the Territory since September 1991 to monitor the ceasefire between Morocco and the Frente Polisario.Morocco holds that its sovereignty over Western Sahara should be recognized, while the Frente Polisario’s position is that the Territory’s final status should be decided in a referendum that includes independence as an option. 26 September 2008Morocco’s proposal for autonomy for Western Sahara is the result of broad international consultation and should end the stalemate on the issue at the United Nations, the country’s Prime Minister told the General Assembly today.

Details of the Truth and Friendship Commission’s work still remain to be worked out, however, the Foreign Ministers of both nations – Hassan Wirayuda of Indonesia and José Ramos-Horta of Timor-Leste – told reporters after their meeting with Mr. Annan in New York. They welcomed international support for the new panel.Following balloting on 30 August 1999 – in which 79 per cent of Timorese voted to reject the proposed autonomy and begin a process of transition toward independence – local pro-integration militias, at times with the support of elements of the Indonesian security forces, embarked on a campaign of violence, looting and arson throughout the entire territory.In addition to the nine Timorese UN workers killed during the mayhem, thousands were forcibly displaced across the border into Indonesian West Timor.Australia led a UN-mandated international force to quell the violence and the UN subsequently established in October 1999 the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET), as the territory was then known, to guide the process of independence.In May 2002, with Mr. Annan in attendance, the UN handed over full sovereignty of the tiny island nation to an elected government and Timor-Leste became the world body’s 191st Member in September of that year.Mr. Ramos-Horta called the agreement “unprecedented” in international relations. “This is an initiative that we believe is highly positive and will shed truth on the events of the past, and we seek support from the international community in some form expertise to assist this commission,” he said.
BERLIN – The German economy managed to avoid sinking into recession during an unusually cold first quarter, but only just, official figures showed Wednesday.Europe’s biggest economy grew by 0.1 per cent in the January-March quarter compared with the previous three-month period, Germany’s Federal Statistical Office said. That followed a 0.7 per cent decline in last year’s fourth quarter, a figure that was revised downward from the initial reading of 0.6 per cent.The increase was lower than anticipated — the consensus in the market was for a 0.3 per cent quarterly rise.If the first quarter figure had shown a decline, then Germany would have been in recession — technically defined as two straight quarters of negative economic growth.Extremely cold weather that dragged on until the end of March was one factor behind the feeble growth figure, the statistics office said. Winter conditions typically hurt industries such as construction.UniCredit economist Andreas Rees argued that the data “should be taken with a pinch of salt, or maybe even two” because of the unusual weather.Despite the subdued first-quarter performance, Germany is in better shape than almost all the 17 European Union countries that use the euro. Though recent economic indicators have been mixed, the key industrial sector has been robust and unemployment remains relatively low.Looking ahead, prospects for Germany are improving now that the hard winter is over, said Carsten Brezski, an economist at ING in Brussels.“Industry is gaining pace as order books have started to fill again and companies are cautiously stepping up their investment plans,” he said. “Moreover, domestic demand with the solid labour market and wage increases have become a reliable growth driver.”The economy’s relative health has fueled demands for big pay increases in several sectors.Early Wednesday, the IG Metall union secured a solid raise for some 3.7 million workers in the key industrial sector, a deal that heads off the threat of strikes.Under the deal reached by negotiators in Bavaria, which is expected to be extended to the rest of the country, workers will get a 3.4 per cent raise in July followed by another 2.2 per cent next May. The agreement runs until the end of next year.IG Metall initially sought a raise of 5.5 per cent this year alone, arguing that companies in Germany could afford it and that it would bolster private spending. But union chairman Berthold Huber said that employees “will get a fair and appropriate share of economic developments” under the deal now reached.

Rickshaws are a pretty green form of urban transportation, relying on nothing more than good old human energy. But, of course, pulling them is a lot of work. So a Japanese company has created what it’s describing as the world’s first electric rickshaw — and it’s completely human power free.It’s called the Meguru, and has a design that makes it look like a motorcycle with a small cabin placed on top. The engine is completely electric, allowing for a range of 40 kilometers and a top speed of 40 kilometers per hour. It’s also available to purchase right now for ¥100,000, or, around $1,200 USD.Via Engadget
When Monica Stonier first started working full time as a teacher in 2001, she was more focused on learning her students’ names than about her union, the Washington Education Association. But now Stonier, who has since been elected as a Democratic state representative for Vancouver, gives more thought to the future of organized labor.Stonier said that somehow the Freedom Foundation, an Olympia-based conservative think tank, found her home address. Like thousands of other public employees, she receives a letter each year reminding her that she can limit her financial support for her union.In recent years, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on a series of cases that right-to-work advocates hope will further the decline of organized labor (particularly among public-sector employees).The Freedom Foundation has actively sought to reduce the power of public-sector unions using these rulings. Last legislative session, Stonier, and other like-minded lawmakers, passed legislation intended to minimize the impact of court rulings unfriendly to unions. This legislation could soon be put to the test.In June, the court is expected to rule on Janus v. AFSCME. The case is centered on an Illinois state employee who is arguing that being forced to pay fees to a union for representation violates his civil rights. A ruling in favor of Janus would overturn a decades-old precedent and could significantly peel back support for politically influential public-sector unions.

The ex-employee said they were disappointed to have been let go just weeks before Christmas, but Marlon Johnson in a media report explained only that it was decided not to renew the employee contracts.Johnson, who is the Financial Secretary also said: “The department will continue to optimize its workforce and headcount to ensure that appropriate skill sets are retained and recruited as necessary, as the department consistently seeks to improve its service to the public.”There is no confirmation on how many employees were terminated, but one report says it is as many as 30 people.

Kangana Ranaut, Rajkummar Rao at Judgemental Hai Kya eventYouTube ScreenshotKangana Ranaut has landed in yet another controversy and this time with a journalist at the Judgemental Hai Kya song launch event in Mumbai on Monday (July 8) morning.The ruckus started out when a journalist took to the mic to ask Kangana a question. But before the journalist could ask the question, Kangana, all of a sudden, ‘insulted’ the journalist by saying, “Tum mere baare mei kitni gandi gandi baatein likhte ho. Jingoistic bolte ho. Itni gandi soch laate kahan se ho? (You are writing so many negative things about him. You are calling me jingoistic. From where do you bring this dirty mindset?)”To this the journalist replied to Kangana that it was not the proper way to talk to the media while being in a power of position. Kangana then went on to say, “You are bashing my film Manikarnika. Have I made a mistake by making a film? You are calling me a jingoistic person for making a film on nationalism.”Upset with how Kangana took the conversation to a different level altogether, the journalist told her that she cannot intimidate him like that. Another journalist, who was present at the event, came out in support of the journalist in question while others remained tight-lipped.Kangana then accused the journalist of running smear campaign against her on social media and harming her brand. The journalist denied the allegations and said that there was no reason for him to do such thing against her. Kangana said that she was not intimidating anyone and that she was just being candid.She told him that she had sat down with him for an interview during Manikarnika in her van for three hours, had lunch with her and even personally texted her. The journalist denied Kangana’s claims and even asked her if she could send the screenshot of his message to him right here right now to clear the things that she had started it out at the press conference.To calm down the situation, producer Ekta Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao even apologised to the journalist and moved on to take questions from other journalists present at the event.The entire fiasco has left many disappointed with Kangana’s full show of ‘toxic behaviour’ at a public event. However, some of her loyal fans have poured in support for her on social media.Watch the full video here:

Travelweek Group Wednesday, December 13, 2017 << Previous PostNext Post >> 30 days ahead is best time to book tickets, says new ARC report Posted by ARLINGTON, VA — The U.S.-based Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) and Expedia have collaborated for the fourth time to produce the ‘ARC 2018 Air Travel Outlook Report’, which aims to help leisure and business flyers determine the best personal travel options.They used ARC’s flight data that spanned Sept. 1, 2016 to Aug. 31, 2017, to identify patterns relating to best-value pricing so that travellers better understand when they’re most likely to find the lowest prices for flights.The report found that the advance purchase window for cost-effective ticket purchases continues to gradually increase as a result of strong demand. Business travellers in particularly are also beginning to understand this shifting dynamic, resulting in long-haul, premium flights being booked further in advance.For most economy or premium air travel, booking more than 30 days ahead is a good strategy for purchasing lower priced tickets.Sunday proved to be a good day to book tickets. With few exceptions around the world, lower airfares for international and U.S. domestic economy seats were booked on this day.More news: Windstar celebrates record-breaking bookings in JulyAs for busiest U.S. gateways, New York, Los Angeles and Miami saw the most traffic, while other gateway cities also proved busy, signalling continuing demand for international travel into the U.S.What was trending in 2017 in the airline industry? Larger, more efficient planes, longer routes and lower prices were the talk of the town. Many airlines are investing for growth, with new aircraft and improved passenger experiences. Some are investing in a more comfortable journey for passengers via fare inclusions, extras or loyalty benefits. Even Low Cost Carriers (LCCs) continue to evolve from the ‘basic’ (or low cost) fare model they made famous, some offering new destinations to second tier airports, and many offering a wider range of fare choice and inclusions.

The talks are slated to be first substantive meetings by all parties involved in the conflict.The delegation representing the government of embattled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi arrived in Geneva Saturday morning, an official from the presidency said.

The Houthis had initially welcomed the meetings.The U.N. had said the talks would start as proximity talks but the U.N. would seek to bring warring factions around the same table.The Yemeni government and the U.N. did not immediately comment. On Friday, the U.N. had announced that the talks would be pushed back a day until Monday “due to unforeseen circumstances” that would delay the arrival of one of the delegations.Inside Yemen, Saudi-led coalition airstrikes continued Saturday. Yemeni security officials said six civilians were killed in Saudi-led coalition airstrikes in Yemen’s capital Sanaa that targeted the homes of relatives of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.The officials said dozens of civilians were injured in Saturday’s airstrikes near the homes of Saleh’s brothers Ali Saleh al-Ahmar, Mohammed Saleh al-Ahmar, and his nephew Yahya Mohammed Abdullah.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Review: ‘The Great Hack’ explores the dark side of big data This image released by Netflix shows Carole Cadwalladr, journalist for The Guardian, in a scene from “The Great Hack.” (Netflix via AP) Thinking about finally getting off of Facebook? “The Great Hack ,” a new documentary on Netflix, might just be the push you were looking for. At the very least, you’ll probably never take another online personality test. It’s meant to scare and influence you, and probably even for good reason — although it is a little ironic that the entire film is about how our personal data is being manipulated and turned into fearmongering tactics.Directed by Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim, “The Great Hack” dives into the Cambridge Analytica scandal and why it matters. By relying mostly on news reports, many by journalist Carole Cadwalladr, and public testimony, the film might not be all that revelatory for anyone who followed the story and watched Mark Zuckerberg’s congressional testimony, however.But you do get to spend a significant time with the former Cambridge Analytica insider-turned-whistleblower Brittany Kaiser, a young woman who was central in drawing up contracts with the Trump campaign and the right hand to the charismatic CEO Alexander Nix. She has since decided that she wants to regain a moral compass and speak to authorities — and this documentary crew — about what she knows and how her old colleagues are lying about their involvement in Brexit and other elections and what they’ve done with all the data they claimed to have deleted.“The Great Hack” starts out with so much promise as David Carroll, an associate professor at Parsons, starts to question where all this data that we all very willingly share is going. The narration is a little sentimental and dreamy.“It began with a dream of a connected world,” Carroll says in voiceover. “Matchmaker, instant fact checker, guardian of our memories…but no one bothered to read the terms and conditions.”Anyone with a pulse and an internet connection knows that of course every click, every search and every purchase is being stored, saved, sold and commoditized for companies who want to sell you more, and better. But he is the one who wondered how a U.K. data company had somehow gained enough information to brag that it had 5,000 data points on every U.S. voter and could “predict the personality of every person in the United States” and then actually did something about it. He asked if he could see his voter profile. When Cambridge Analytica declined, it became a red alarm.“The Great Hack” will help connect the dots between these names that many may only be passively aware of. It’s meant to alarm the public about how our data, our purchases, our likes and the “fun personality quizzes” we take are part of a digital footprint that tech companies are profiting off of and using to manipulate us.But the film devolves into a referendum on the rise of Donald Trump and authoritarian governments around the world, while failing to examine the agency of the individual at the voting booth, or the idea that anything else might have been going on in the psyche of the country to lead to where we are now. No, according to “The Great Hack,” the “crooked Hillary” memes get most of the credit for pushing those Facebook users that Cambridge Analytica deemed to be “persuadable” to vote for the candidate who was paying them.In this, it seems wholly targeted toward one segment of the population, the ones whose minds are made up about why Trump won, and alienating to the other. It’s also an oddly confusing watch. Many of the talking heads start to blur together and the filmmakers don’t help in reminding the viewer who they’re listening to. Thankfully, on Netflix you’re able to rewind.These are interesting and fraught times that deserve an unflinching look at the perils of data rights and online privacy, but “The Great Hack” is a reminder that documentaries are not always journalism. But perhaps this may just inspire someone to go read more from the outlets who broke and continue to follow the story, and maybe, eventually, make a great documentary about it.“The Great Hack,” a Netflix release, is rated TV-MA. Running time: 114 minutes. Two stars out of four.___Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahrLindsey Bahr, The Associated Press by Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Posted Jul 24, 2019 1:53 pm PDT
