Asian film fest takes up the sword — and the teacup Projections

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Reel Asian: One can only hope that President Trump’s recent reference to Japan as “a country of samurai warriors” was a subtle indication of his deep appreciation for movies full of thrilling swordfights between tough guys in robes and top knots. In any case, a fine example of this noble genre is among the offerings at this year’s Reel Asian International Film Festival. Presenting a wide array of new features, shorts and docs by filmmakers working in Asia and throughout the Asian diaspora, the festival runs to Nov. 18 venues downtown and in North York. Devotees of samurai cinema can savour the Toronto premiere of Blade of the Immortal, the mayhem-filled 100th feature by the ultra-prolific Japanese director Takashi Miike — it screens Nov. 16 at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. If you’re looking for more swordplay, the Chinese thriller Brotherhood of Blades II: The Infernal Battlefield offers a comparably kinetic display of sharp pieces of steel on Nov. 11 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.READ MORE Login/Register With: Advertisement Advertisementcenter_img Takuya Kimura in Blade of the Immortal.

Average airfares stay 1015 high more on nonmetro routes

first_imgNew Delhi: Airfares on domestic routes, especially those connecting non-metro cities, remain high with suspension of Jet Airways flights. The average ticket prices have gone up in the range of 10-15 per cent across various sectors even as airlines like SpiceJet and IndiGo have mounted additional capacity. “The average fare level is higher… in the range of 10-15 per cent,” an Air India executive said. Ankur Bhatia, executive director at diversified travel and hospitality major Bird Group, said that the airfares had risen more in case of short-haul routes such as Delhi-Dehradun on long weekends. But with induction of capacity, the fare is returning to normal level, he said. “In coming weeks, once additional capacity is brought by SpiceJet and Air India, the fare levels would come down further,” Bhatia added. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalFaced with severe liquidity crisis, Jet Airways this week suspended its entire operations causing massive reduction of capacity. “Since no emergency funding from the lenders or any other source is forthcoming, the airline will not be able to pay for fuel orother critical services to keep the operations going. Consequently, with immediate effect, Jet Airways is compelled to cancel all its international and domestic flights,” the airline had said in an official statement on April 17. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostSharat Dhall, COO (B2C),, said that with Jet Airways discontinuing service temporarily, the Indian civil aviation industry has taken a big blow as Jet has been a carrier with a large fleet and the preferred choice for many travellers over many years. “Additionally, with the timing coinciding with the peak summer travel period, demand is likely to be high across all sectors. However, we have confidence that the industry will be able to take on this increased demand with other carriers inducting more aircrafts which should help rationalize airfares which are on the higher side, particularly for last minute travel,” he said. Low-cost carrier SpiceJet is expected to take 30 of the Jet Airways’ grounded aircraft on lease and deploy them on domestic sectors in coming weeks.last_img read more

Annan urges parties in DR of Congo to work toward genuine peace

While the all-inclusive power-sharing agreement signed last December was an important step towards national reconciliation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the parties have yet to take steps to implement the accord and instead remain engaged in military confrontations, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan says in a report released today.In his latest report to the Security Council on the work of the UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC), Mr. Annan underscores that the prompt inauguration of the transitional Government will be critical in order to maintain the momentum created by the signing in Pretoria of the so-called All-Inclusive Agreement.Mr. Annan appeals to the accord’s signatories to respond positively to the aspirations of the “war-weary” people of the DRC and to show the necessary statesmanship to “embark on the long but critical road towards genuine national reconciliation and peace.”The report also highlights two issues that will be vitally important during the forthcoming phase of the peace process, the first of which is that the DRC’s territorial integrity must be respected. “I am concerned by the widespread suspicions of continuing political and military involvement in the eastern DRC, including by neighbouring States,” he says.Despite the declared withdrawal of most military forces, accompanied by initial steps toward disarmament and demobilization, the military situation on the ground – particularly in the Ituri region and the Kivus – continues to be volatile, according to the report. Mr. Annan notes that security concerns have hampered MONUC’s verification work and calls on all those with influence on the authorities and armed forces that control those areas to press them to allow the Mission unimpeded access, and to address regional issues through diplomacy, not “hostilities conducted by proxies in Congolese territory.”The other critical element for success of the peace process is the establishment of the Ituri Pacification Commission, particularly since the potentially explosive nature of the political and military situation in the northeast – as well as the possibility that outside forces might be drawn in – are sources of major concern.”The importance of a political solution to underpin any military disengagement and ceasefire is key,” Mr. Annan says, urging all parties and States involved to engage constructively in establishing the Commission without delay, and to cooperate with MONUC’s peace-making activities. read more

US mines complete safest year ever

first_img2009 was the safest year ever for American miners, according to official figures released this week by the US Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). Both coal mines and metal/non-metal mines recorded the fewest fatalities in the history of American mining in 2009. Total mine fatalities fell below the previous record set in 2008, and nearly 85% of all US mines completed the year with no lost-time injuries.“We’re gratified by this achievement because it confirms that safety is a core value at US mines with the use of advances in technology, risk analysis, enhanced training and a heightened emphasis on safety awareness,” said National Mining Association (NMA) President and CEO Hal Quinn. “Our work, however, continues as we strive to reach our ultimate goal of zero injuries in America’s mines.”The figures show 34 fatalities for all US mining in 2009, 18 fewer than 2008. The 18 coal mine fatalities recorded last year were the fewest ever for US coal mines, and the 16 fatalities in mineral mining in 2009 were also a record low for that sector.US mining has invested more than $850 million over the last four years to improve mine safety and to implement the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act and the recommendations of the independent Mine Safety Technology and Training Commission, which was set up by NMA in 2006. During 2009, NMA launched a series of safety initiatives to reduce accidents by targeting three high-incident environments: proximity to mobile underground equipment, slips and falls and vehicle safety. Training and awareness materials developed by NMA and its members were widely distributed throughout operations in the US.Industry observers also noted the sustained, decade-long trend in year-over-year reductions in the rate of lost-time injuries, i.e., reported injuries per 200,000 hours worked. “The steady decline in lost-time injuries that began in 2000 underscores that heightened vigilance, advances in safety technologies and new training techniques are paying important dividends,” Quinn concluded.last_img read more

This Link Between Worlds Figma Has All the Items

first_imgStay on target The Best Wonder Wharf Prizes for Bob’s Burgers FansOpen The Nick Box from CultureFly, Get Amazing Hat The Legend of Zelda has been all about items ever since the first game, but toy manufacturers haven’t been as generous with Link in action figure form as dungeons consistently are for him in sprite and polygon forms. Even Max Factory didn’t give him much beyond the Master Sword and Hylian shield for the Skyward Sword Figma. Well, it’s turned around and given Link all of the adventuring tools he needs in his Link Between Worlds form if you get the Deluxe version.The deluxe Link Between Worlds Figma is about $15 more than the regular version (which is about as well-equipped as the Skyward Sword Figma), and that $15 makes all the difference. This deluxe Link is rolling in items. Yeah, he has the Master Sword (no scabbard this time) and the Hylian shield, but that’s just the start.For dungeon exploring tools, the deluxe Link has the Tornado Rod with a removable green plastic disc to give the impression if it is spinning and lifting him into the air. He also has the Hookshot, with both retracted and extended heads (the extended head is a straight piece of plastic molded like a chain). Link also gets a bomb, with a hole in the bottom that fits into a special pegged hand, to let you pose Link holding or throwing it. Link also wears the Power Bracelet, and while it’s on by default you can remove it.There are some great non-item accessories in the box, as well. You get a pot (not breakable, but the bomb can fit inside), a green Rupee with a stand to let it float upright, and a baby Maiamai. Finally, because this is Link Between Worlds Link, after all, you get a flat plastic painted Link standee, as if he was merged into the wall.Link Between Worlds‘ Link is much more old-school in design than the Skyward Sword Link, with shoulder-length brown hair reminiscent of the first two Zelda games’ box art. He doesn’t have an undershirt, and his tunic isn’t trimmed, so he looks a bit simpler. He’s just as poseable, though, with a clear adjustable stand that can hold him in mid-leap (which is one of my favorite parts of Figmas).Like most Japanese figures aimed at collectors, the Link Between Worlds deluxe Link Figma is pretty expensive. I picked him up for $55 at New York Comic-Con from Good Smile’s booth, and you can find him for about that much or a bit more online (he’s $70 at GameStop, $56 on Big Bad Toy Store). Just make sure you get the deluxe version and not the regular one. Otherwise, you’ll miss out on all the cool stuff he comes with.last_img read more

Search for the missing continues in tornadoes aftermath

first_imgTUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Where is Johnnie Brown’s sister? More than week after tornadoes ripped neighborhoods to shreds across the South, there still are no answers.It’s unclear how many people are missing across the seven states where 329 deaths have been reported. There are 25 unaccounted for in Tuscaloosa alone, the mayor says, but that number could be off because of the chaos the storm left behind. Cadaver dog teams across the region are scouring the debris to uncover whatever tragedies may remain, and even bad news would be comforting to anguished families.Tracy Sargent’s dog team took just minutes to do what humans searching for hours could not: Locate the body of a University of Alabama student in a maze of twisted trees and debris. The young man’s father was there when the body was found in Tuscaloosa this week.“(The father) went over there and bent over and touched his son and started talking to him,” Sargent said. “And he hugged him, started crying, and told him that he loved him and that he would miss him.”last_img read more

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey called Rep Omar over Trump tweet

first_img Share your voice Jack Dorsey Twitter Donald Trump Tech Industry Politics Rep. Ilhan Omar spoke with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Tuesday to discuss the death threats against her that arose after President Donald Trump shared a video of her comments. Getty Images Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey called Rep. Ilhan Omar on Tuesday to discuss the social network’s decision to allow a tweet by President Donald Trump that led to a flood of tweets threatening the life of the Muslim congresswoman.The call focused on a tweet Trump shared earlier this month that included a video that purported to show Omar being dismissive of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The video coupled out-of-context comments she made during a recent speech in which she said “some people did something” with images of the hijacked airplanes striking the World Trade Center.When Omar asked Dorsey during the call why Twitter didn’t remove Trump’s tweet, Dorsey told her Trump’s tweet didn’t violate the company’s rules, sources told The Washington Post, which previously reported the conversation. Dorsey also pointed out that the tweet had been shared beyond the site but conceded that Twitter needed to do a better job of removing hate and harassing content from the site, the Post reported.A Twitter spokesperson on Thursday confirmed the conversation between Dorsey and Omar, which occurred the same day that Dorsey and Trump had an Oval Office meeting. “During their conversation, [Dorsey] emphasized that death threats, incitement to violence, and hateful conduct are not allowed on Twitter,” the spokesperson said. “We’ve significantly invested in technology to proactively surface this type of content and will continue to focus on reducing the burden on the individual being targeted. Our team has also consistently been in touch with Rep. Omar’s office.” Twitter came under increased scrutiny earlier this month after Omar said that tweets threatening her life have increased since Trump shared the video. Twitter typically removes tweets that violate its terms of service when they’re reported, but a source familiar with the matter said the social media platform temporarily left the tweets up to aid potential law enforcement investigation of them.Some considered Omar’s “some people did something” comment to be disrespectful or flippant language to describe the terrorist attacks. But Omar’s comment quoted in the tweet actually came from a speech before the Council on American-Islamic Relations in which she was defending the rights of Muslim Americans. With nearly 60 million followers, Trump is among Twitter’s most followed users, and his tweets can be controversial. Twitter has faced calls to boot Trump off the platform over allegations that he’s spreading hate speech or inciting violence. The social network takes into consideration the newsworthiness of Trump’s tweets.Omar couldn’t immediately be reached for comment, and the White House didn’t respond to an earlier request for comment on the tweet. 0 Post a comment Review • Adobe Post review: Adobe Post for iPhone pretties up your pontifications Adobe Post Tagslast_img read more

Jammu and Kashmir Tourism to promote aggressively

first_imgThe Director of Tourism for Jammu and Kashmir, Tasaduq Jeelani, recently confirmed that tourism department will aggressively market Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) as a top tourist destination in the upcoming travel trade shows. He stated this while addressing a meeting with the head of local associations of tour operators, houseboat owners and hoteliers at TRC, Srinagar. The meeting was held to discuss and prepare the local stakeholders for promotional campaigns to attract tourists for autumn and winter seasons.During the meeting, Jeelani confirmed the travel trade and tourist inflow from Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Bangladesh have grown over the past few years, and the tourism department will make sure that the number of travellers increases from these markets.“It is encouraging that the foreign tourist flow to Kashmir and Ladakh has increased in these countries where we would go and show our presence in the travel marts. We will visit these places and project J&K as one of the best and safe tourist attractions and convince the travellers there to visit J&K,” he said.He also added that the department is planning to participate in the travel shows at Surat, Pune, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Kolkata to tap the domestic market.last_img read more

Home Sales Fall Behind in a Strong Economy

first_img Affordability Demand Freddie Mac HOUSING Inventory Prices 2018-09-24 Seth Welborn Share in Daily Dose, Data, News, Origination Despite improved economic conditions and a better inventory, the housing market has stalled, according to a report from Freddie Mac. The Freddie Mac September Forecast found that weaker affordability, homebuilder constraints and ongoing supply and demand imbalances have contributed to fewer home sales over the summer compared to last year.“The spring and summer home buying and selling season ultimately ended up being a letdown, despite a faster growing economy and healthy demand for buying a home,” said Freddie Mac Chief Economist Sam Khater. “Unfortunately, too many would-be buyers continue to be tripped up by not enough affordable supply and the one-two punch of much higher home prices and mortgage rates.”Freddie Mac noted that the economy is “firing all cylinders”, growing at its fastest pace in four years. According to the GSE, solid consumer spending and business investment should keep the economy on a very strong growth path of 3.0 percent this year. However, that strength has not been reflected in the housing market. Mortgage rates fell slightly over the summer, but most have inched back up again. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is expected to average 4.5 percent this year and 5.1 percent in 2019.Additionally, Freddie Mac notes that affordability has been a problem, with not enough moderately-priced homes on the market. All home sales are forecasted to decline modestly this year to 6.07 million from 6.12 million in 2017. Decreasing refinance activity and home sales from a year ago are expected to cause single-family first-lien mortgage originations to slide around 9 percent this year to $1.65 trillion.Freddie Mac also found that less homeowners have been tapping into their equity. Though the share of cash-out refinances last quarter was the highest since Q3 2008, the total dollar volume of cash-out refinance activity remains much lower than the peak seen more than a decade ago. The $15.5 billion in net home equity cashed out last quarter was less than the 2006 peak of $102.3 billionAdded Khater, “Prospective buyers are being squeezed the most where demand is the strongest: the entry-level portion of the market. While price appreciation is welcomingly starting to ease in many markets, weakening affordability continues to hamper overall activity.”center_img September 24, 2018 682 Views Home Sales Fall Behind in a Strong Economylast_img read more
