Los Angeles: Collin Chou, best known for “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions”, is set to feature in rom-com “The Half of It”. The Netflix film will be directed by Alice Wu, reported Deadline. The project, which is a follow-up to Wu’s 2004 film “Saving Face”, revolves around the struggles of an immigrant family against the backdrop of an American-esque teenage angst romantic comedy. Chou will play Edwin Chiu, a struggling immigrant father to Leah Lewis’ Ellie. Also Read – ‘Will be acting till I die’ Ellie was a highly educated engineer whose promising career was compromised by Edwin’s poor English speaking skills when he moved to the US. He takes up the job as a station manager of the local train depot to provide for his daughter, but poor pay hinders his ability to move up the ladder. Wu is the writer and co-producer on the film. Anthony Bregman and M Blair Breard are also producing with executive producers Erica Matlin and Greg Zuk.
HALIFAX – A woman who broke up with her fiance after a fight over wedding expenses can keep the engagement ring, a Halifax adjudicator has ruled.Devin Sherrington had sued his would-be bride, Lauren Arbuckle, in small claims court for the 3.25 carat diamond ring, worth as much as $19,000.Sherrington, a personal trainer, and Arbuckle, a hairstylist and make-up artist, had planned to marry in 2016. But he postponed the wedding amid arguments over its cost, small claims adjudicator Gregg Knudsen said in a written ruling released Wednesday.“Mr. Sherrington testified that the wedding budget was becoming a very contentious issue. He sought to err on the less expensive side while Ms. Arbuckle preferred a more lavish affair. As a result of the disagreement and the strain it was having on their relationship, Mr. Sherrington suggested they postpone the wedding,” said Knudsen.“Ms. Arbuckle did not agree with that idea at all.”Arbuckle — who texts showed had originally wanted to elope but Sherrington wanted “a party” — then ended the relationship altogether, Knudsen said.Knudsen said it wasn’t Arbuckle who broke the engagement — and that was the key issue in deciding who keeps the ring.“I find the postponement was an indefinite postponement, sufficient to treat the engagement as over. Ms. Arbuckle may have ended the relationship but Mr. Sherrington ended the engagement,” said Knudsen.“It is the conditional aspect of the gift, the marriage or the intent to marry, which is the critical issue. The determination of the entitlement to the engagement ring is based upon who broke off the engagement and who didn’t.”In the end, Knudsen said text messages exchanged by the two showed Sherrington had told Arbuckle she could keep the ring anyway.The adjudicator did, however, order Arbuckle to pay Sherrington $2,914 for her share of a trip to Mexico they had taken together.The battle over the ring may ultimately be moot: Arbuckle has filed for bankruptcy, so the ring is in the possession of the trustee in bankruptcy.
Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe, a Ugandan educator and CNN Hero, will attend the Chicago debut of “Sewing Hope,” a film that documents her work restoring the lives of women and girls brutalized by Joseph Kony’s rebel army.She will visit DePaul University Feb. 16-20 and will attend the screening and discussion Feb. 19 from 5 to 8:30 p.m. in the lower level theater at 14 E. Jackson Blvd. The event is free and open to the public. RSVP here.“Sewing Hope” follows Nyirumbe as she leads a vocational school in Gulu, Uganda, where she teaches practical skills to restore independence to women and girls who were kidnapped and sexually assaulted by Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army. Filmmaker Derek Watson mixes first person accounts and edgy animation as actor Forest Whitaker narrates Nyirumbe’s fight to bring hope back to her troubled nation. Sister Rosemary’s story is also chronicled in a novel that is available on Amazon by Reggie Whitten and Nancy Henderson titled Sewing Hope.DePaul’s School for New Learning recognized Nyirumbe with an honorary doctorate in December 2013 in partnership with Tangaza College in Nairobi, Kenya. Founded in 1898 in Chicago, DePaul is the largest Catholic university in the United States. Tangaza College is also a Catholic institution and prepares graduates for ministerial and social work.“Sister Rosemary is a living example for DePaul and Tangaza College as we work together to develop leaders for Africa,” said Derise Tolliver Atta, associate professor in DePaul’s School for New Learning. “She stood up to Kony’s army and works unabashedly for social justice, and that resonates with DePaul students in Chicago and Africa.”Traveling the world to advocate on behalf of her school that was developed in partnership with Pros For Africa, — St. Monica’s Girls Tailoring Center — Nyirumbe also brings attention to the ongoing violence caused by rebel groups in Uganda. In 2007, she was named a CNN Hero. U.S. President Bill Clinton and his daughter, Chelsea, praised her mission and determination earlier this year during a visit to Uganda.Under Nyirumbe’s leadership, St. Monica’s has adapted to the practical and trauma-induced needs of a population suffering in a civil war. Women and girls at the school receive psychological support and literacy training, as well as vocational skills like sewing and planting crops. Nyirumbe developed a program to help students earn money by creating purses from soda pop tabs. Since 2002, annual enrollment at St. Monica’s has surged to more than 300 from 31, and most leave the school with permanent jobs.The School for New Learning at DePaul University provides a distinctive approach to learning for adults, with customized programs that build upon abilities and experiences, add knowledge and develop skills to help achieve personal and professional goals. This event is presented by the Africa Diaspora Committee at DePaul during Black History Month. More information is online at www.snl.depaul.edu.

Casablanca — The ANRT (National Agency of Telecommunication Regulation) has released a statement on November 4 confirming the end of the VoIP blockage, which had restricted Moroccans from using a variety of voice calling mobile applications.“All telecommunication operators have been allowed to proceed with the restoration of all telephone services and applications over IP (VoIP) across their networks,” said the ANRT statement.The decision to block the VoIP had initially been made in an effort to maintain profits for telecommunication companies. However, for the last several months, the question of “over the top” applications led to several discussions and debates, the ANRT statement said. The ANRT states that the decision to end the VoIP blockage came “after a national and international evaluation was made by the ANRT concerning telecommunication markets, the context of regulations and the harmonious development of the sector with respect to the needs of users.”The ANRT’s statement comes to the relief of many Moroccan who were limited in terms of what apps they could use and had, for a long time, condemned the ANRT’s decision to block the VoIP.At the end of the statement, the ANRT promises to “follow these questions with great interest and ensure that users benefit of the best technological innovations, in line with the needs of the sector’s development and regulations.”
Rabat – The increase of stampedes in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta has pushed the Moroccan-Spanish authorities to find a solution to reduce the fatalities caused by stampedes annually. For the neighbors, building a bridge in the Morocco-Spain Tarajal border checkpoints will ensure smooth traffic flow.In January, two Moroccan women died while several others suffered injuries after a stampede at one of the entrance gates of the Ceuta’s crossing border.Moroccan newspaper Al Ahdath Al Maghribia reported in its weekend issue that the Moroccan Spanish authorities have reached an agreement to build a bridge that will ensure the smooth flow of traffic and add two additional passages: one entrance to the Spanish protectorate and one exit. The two other passages will be dedicated to the circulation of travelers and tourists.Al Ahdath added that the Spanish authorities will only allow access to cars whose legal documents comply with European regulations, especially the stipulation that the driver be the owner of the vehicle.The vehicle queue will be organized along the perimeter of the Moroccan side of the border to unclog the national road 352, which serves as a major thoroughfare in Ceuta, connecting the city center and the port. Nearly 900 cars cross the border each day. The border has also served as a major crossing point for illegal goods.According to Spanish news outlet Ceuta Actualidad, the Spanish Ministry of Interior and Treasury have already set a plan for the modernization of the border point, known as El Tarajal I. According to the Spanish source, the construction works might begin in early 2019.The newsource added that a seven-lane expansion is planned, one of which will be reserved for the security officials.Three stampedes were reported in 2017. The first incident occurred on March 28, 2017,, while the second dates back to April 24. One Moroccan woman was killed in each respective incident. The third tragedy occurred on August 28: two Moroccan women died, while others suffered injuries.In June 2017, Spanish authorities made an agreement with the Moroccan government to prevent the so-called “human mules,” or Moroccan women who carry heavy loads of trade goods across the border, from crossing through Ceuta’s El Tarajal II checkpoint in the same day.According to the agreement, women are allowed to cross the border only on Mondays and Wednesdays, while men will be permitted on Tuesdays and Thursdays.In the same month, Spanish parliament discussed a suggestion by Podemos Party to improve the working conditions of Ceuta and Melilla’s “human mules,” though no decisive action has occurred in the time since.
Analysts also expect investor interest in prospects for crude-by-rail shipments, as smaller differences between Canadian and U.S. oil prices make that shipping option less financially attractive.“Given how tight differentials have shifted, a number of conversations on the near-term Canadian outlook have centred around near-term rail expectations as spot pricing appears out of the money,” said Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. analysts in a report.They added they expect rail shipping to continue at a good pace, however, because producers have signed deals with railways to add volume and will likely continue to use that capacity.The fall in world oil prices last month could lead to cuts in capital spending plans announced in the fourth quarter by companies including mid-sized NuVista Energy Ltd. and Advantage Oil and Gas Ltd., the report says. CALGARY — Fourth-quarter results from Canada’s biggest oil and gas companies will likely feature some surprises, as well as revisions to forward plans, given extreme volatility in commodity prices in the last three months of 2018, financial analysts say.The parade of results begins Friday with Imperial Oil Ltd. and continues next Tuesday with Suncor Energy Inc.During the quarter, U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate oil prices fell 16 per cent from the previous period to average US$58.79 per barrel, but Canadian prices were much more severely impacted thanks to discounts blamed on full export pipelines, according to RBC Capital Markets. Why are energy stocks so cold when Canadian oil prices are so hot? Wall Street, TSX erase losses after surprise surge in oil prices Can Alberta’s oil production cuts lift Canadian heavy oil prices? Those discounts, which resulted in a 59 per cent drop in the average price for bitumen-blend Western Canadian Select oil in the quarter and a 45 per cent drop in the average price for lighter Edmonton Par crude, subsided to normal levels or lower in December after the Alberta government announced production curtailments beginning Jan. 1.The price chaos will make it difficult to read too much into financial reports, which are likely to show buoyant returns for those oil and gas producers that also have refining operations, said RBC analyst Greg Pardy in a research note.“Although fourth-quarter results will likely showcase the power of downstream (refinery) integration, we do not look upon them as indicative of the cash flow horsepower of our coverage group,” he said.“This point reflects the severe dislocation of Canadian oil differentials across the complex during the fourth quarter — and downstream inventory distortions caused by the sharp drop in WTI. As such, we believe fourth-quarter results are truly backward looking in every sense of the phrase.”About 25 operators who each produce more than 10,000 barrels of oil per day in Alberta have been affected by the government-mandated cuts.… we believe fourth-quarter results are truly backward looking in every sense of the phrase.RBC analyst Greg Pardy
The UN Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) said in a statement that the injured person was immediately offered medical attention at the mission’s level 1 plus hospital and then transported to Barentu Hospital where he died.“UNMEE deeply regrets this tragic loss of life and extends its sincere condolences to the family of the deceased and to the Eritrean authorities,” the statement said. The mission has since instituted an investigation, and will fully cooperate with the Eritrean Government for the successful conduct of this probe. Nine days ago, Eritrean troops moved 1,500 troops and 14 tanks into the Temporary Security Zone (TSZ) separating the two countries in what Secretary-General Kofi Annan called “a major breach” of the ceasefire that ended the two-year border war in 2000. He called on Eritrea to withdraw its troops immediately.UNMEE reported then that the Eritrean forces took over one of its checkpoints in Sector West. Last year Eritrea restricted UNMEE’s use of helicopters, impeding its ability to monitor 50 to 55 per cent of the area on the Eritrean side within the TSZ. In his latest report last month on the conflict, Mr. Annan repeated concerns that Ethiopia had not accepted the binding decisions of the Boundary Commission demarcating the border at the root of the war, and that Eritrea refused to continue to cooperate with the body.
OSU then-redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) high-fives Buckeye fans after a 62-3 victory against Maryland on Nov. 12. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorIn 2014, Ohio State then-redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett helped propel the Buckeyes into the first ever College Football Playoff. Now, in 2017, Barrett will be leading the charge for OSU one last time, with extra backing from the Buckeye faithful on campus.Barrett has been named The Lantern’s Best Athlete by voters, an award which went to current Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. It marks the second-straight year a member of the football team has been named as the university’s best athlete.After tossing 24 touchdowns and rushing for another nine, Barrett was a key cog in the offensive machine for OSU. Flashing both his legs and his arm, the Texas native compiled 3,400 total yards.Barrett received lots of criticism for the passing game woes, but managed to command an offensive unit that averaged 39.4 points and 459.2 yards per game. Next year, the redshirt senior will benefit from the presence of former NFL coach Ryan Day, who is now the team’s co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.“He’s a grown man,” Day said. “He’s like a professional when he shows up every day. From when I got here until now, I can see the best thing he does is play the game.”OSU also brought in Kevin Wilson to help recharge the offense. The former Indiana head coach, who had to strategize against Barrett on multiple occasions, called him “the best quarterback in college football” after OSU’s 38-17 win last year.“He’s one of the best players, he’s one of the best teammates,” Wilson said. “I’m not in their locker room, I’m sure he’s a phenomenal leader.”Runner-up: Kyle Snyder
Flt Lt Townshend was flying a Voyager aircraft, which the RAF uses for transporting passengers and for air-to-air refuellingCredit:Sgt Neil Bryden RAF/MoD During the nosedive, Flt Lt Townshend repeatedly swore and later announced to his 187 military passengers he “was not sure” what caused it.Both he and the co-pilot were pinned to the ceiling, and wrestled with the controls as aircraft plummeted towards the Black Sea carrying 187 passengers.Flt Lt Townshend later deleted photographs he had taken immediately before the incident.Mr Lickley said checks carried out when the plane landed in Turkey revealed there were no technical issues and said Flt Lt Townshend had caused the side stick to move forward.He added a “bored” Flt Lt Townshend, based at RAF Northolt, was seen during the flight taking photos of passing aircraft.”Flt Lt Townshend was not concentrating while flying and was bored. The camera and side stick have damage to them which is consistent with them coming into contact like they did.”He disputes putting the camera next to him and knowing the camera was in the position it was while jammed. He says it had fallen from a shelf.”In a tech-log after they landed he said it was a mechanical issue and suggested there was a very serious issue with the aircraft.”Days later at two service inquiries, while answering questions under oath, he did not tell the truth. He said the reason for the incident was a technical malfunction.”Flt Lt Nathan Jones, the co-pilot, suffered a cut to the head, a fractured back, a prolapsed disc and nerve damage.The court heard 14 passengers were so badly hurt they were unable to fly back to the UK.Describing accounts from others on board, Mr Lickley said: “Sergeant Ian Burke was pinned up on the ceiling and couldn’t move. Sergeant Humphries thought he was going to die and was also pinned on the ceiling.”Natalie Thornhill, a cabin crew member, was thrown to the ceiling and then thrown to the floor.”The trial, expected to last two weeks, continues.

The descent was unannounced so passengers experienced weightlessness, they were thrown to the ceiling and thought they were going to dieNigel Lickley QC, prosecuting His Nikon DSLR camera was positioned in front of his arm rest and became jammed with the plane’s controls when he moved his seat forward in the incident in February 2014.The camera wedged between his arm rest and the ‘side-stick’ – a joystick used to control the plane – which pushed it forward, disengaging the auto-pilot and causing the plane to nosedive.Nigel Lickley QC, prosecuting, said: “The descent was unannounced so passengers experienced weightlessness, they were thrown to the ceiling and thought they were going to die.”This all happened while he was alone in the cockpit, the co-pilot managed to get back to his seat and was in fact on the ceiling while trying to gain control with Townshend.”Fortunately they managed to gain control of the plane.” A bored RAF pilot flying nearly 200 service personnel to Afghanistan sent his passenger jet into a nosedive when a camera he had been playing with jammed the flight controls, a court martial heard.As the Voyager aircraft plummeted 4,400ft in seconds, passengers were pinned to the ceiling and left thinking they were going to die.But after Flt Lt Andrew Townshend regained control of the 197ft wingspan aircraft, he allegedly lied in both a technical log and service inquiry and insisted the incident had been caused by a technical fault.

According to Motorola the iPad is a giant iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy Tab runs a version of Android that was made to power a phone. Motorola, on the other hand, is “buzzing with excitement to be the next chapter in tablet evolution”.Motorola put out this commercial ahead of the unveiling of an Android “Honeycomb” tablet at CES next month (buzzing with excitement, get it?). The company must be pretty optimistic about the tablet because they weren’t shy with the fighting words in their video. In other words, they must feel that they’ll be able to duplicate the success of the Droid phones with a tablet, once again standing up to Apple in a market where Jobs & Co. have seen huge growth (though the iPhone pales in comparison to the iPad’s market dominance).There isn’t a whole lot else to see, aside from a bee buzzing around Moto’s new logo…Oh and as for that tablet hidden under a curtain, haven’t we actually seen it already?via Crunchgear
Using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers took a long look at a specific part of the sky for around 100 hours. Examining that area of the sky in using infrared allowed the astronomers to see the fainter parts of the Universe, and thus areas that are much farther away than they could normally view. The astronomers found seven galaxies, six of which were undiscovered, that formed around 13 billion years ago when the Universe was only four percent of its current age. That makes these galaxies the oldest we’ve ever seen. In the above image, the galaxies are demarcated by the colored diamonds, with a better view of each individual galaxy up top.About one month ago, NASA announced they viewed the most distant galaxy seen yet. Out of the seven galaxies, one referred to as UDFj-39546284 looked as it did when the Universe was only around 380 million years old. For reference, the Universe is estimated to be around 13.75 billion years old. Since light doesn’t instantly travel across the Universe, there’s technically no telling what those galaxies are up to now, but the snapshot of what they looked like 13 billion years ago provides astronomers with a great deal of information about how galaxies formed during the infancy of the Universe.The astronomers found that rather than instantly gathering all of its stars, the early galaxies grew steadily. Brant Robertson, co-author of a soon-to-be-published study about the findings, noted that “there wasn’t a single dramatic moment when galaxies formed; it’s a gradual process.”Interestingly, even though the distant galaxies in the image are the most distant galaxies we’ve seen to date, that doesn’t mean that they’re the most distant in existence. Astronomers suggest that there could be other galaxies farther out than Hubble can actually see. With a stronger telescope, it’s entirely possible that astronomers will find galaxies even farther away, which also means that they’ll be seen at an even younger age than UDFj-39546284. Who knows what we’ll find.via Spacetelescope.org
Google Maps détecte d’étranges structures dans le désert chinoisDepuis quelques jours, les images de mystérieuses structures, prises au nord-ouest de la Chine par le satellite de Google Maps et mises en ligne, déchaînent la curiosité des internautes… et leur imagination ! C’est dans la partie chinoise du désert de Gobi que le satellite du service de cartographie en ligne Google Maps a repéré une série de structures étranges et peu identifiables. Elles sont situées aux confins des provinces du Gansu et du Xinjiang, au nord-ouest de la Chine, dans une région où se trouvent des installations militaires, spatiales et nucléaires – à moins de 160 kilomètres de Jiuquan, siège du programme spatial chinois et base de rampes de lancement.À lire aussiLe secret de mystérieuses pyramides chinoises enfin percé ?Ce qui fait supposer à certains internautes qu’il pourrait s’agir de cibles pour des exercices de tir, peut-être à partir de satellites. Certaines images semblent suggérer qu’il pourrait s’agir de carcasses d’avions ou de camions brûlés, ce qui va dans le sens de cette hypothèse. D’autres internautes proposent en revanche l’idée d’un ‘code-barre géant’ mais dont l’utilité n’est pas évoquée… Il est en tout cas impossible de dire si ces formes énigmatiques sont peintes sur le sol, sculptées, creusées ou tout simplement posées. Mais c’est en vérité la seconde fois que le géant de l’internet révèle de telles structures suggérant l’existence d’installations secrètes. Le 15 novembre 2011 à 16:55 • Maxime Lambert

If you’re struggling to find pet food that fits your fur baby’s needs (or if you’re just sick of driving back and forth to the pet store every week), you might be interested in one of these options for pet food delivery services, which bring fresh, healthy meals right to your door.

A new HC130-J will replace the HC-130H at Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak. The fixed-wing aircraft will help drop survival gear and other duties. (Photo by Kayla Desroches/KMXT)esCoast Guard Air Station Kodiak just received the first of five newer, more technologically advanced aircraft.Listen nowThe HC-130J replaces the HC-130H that the Coast Guard base Kodiak has been operating since the 1980s.Each model J costs $85 million, and the fixed-wing aircraft assists in dropping survival equipment and enforcing maritime law, among its other duties.A crowd of air station members – some with their families – have gathered to watch a welcoming ceremony.The new model J taxis down to Hangar 1 through streams of water from two fire engines on either side of the runway.Air Station Commanding Officer Capt. Brian Daley said pilots will transition between flying the older model and the J.“The pilots can fly one, can’t fly the other. It’s totally different when you walk inside. And Alaska’s a very unforgiving environment,” Daley said. “Teaching the guys to fly up here is a challenge, and so for this next year, we’re focusing on getting our pilot and aircrew proficient in the aircraft.”The new model J looks pretty similar to its predecessor, the model H. But it’s apparently a lot quieter.Lt. Cmdr. Hunter Atherton is stationed in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, and he’s one of the pilots to fly the J into Kodiak.“Some people really like the roar of the H model and this one doesn’t quite have that, but it is a lot more efficient overall.. they’re both good,” Atherton said. “I’ll definitely miss flying Hs now that I’m flying Js.”Atherton said the model J may look the same as the model H from the outside, but it comes with a few improvements: a more powerful engine, more automation and a better navigation system.Atherton said the plane’s extra features could help cut through challenges pilots face landing in Alaska.“Having access to a plane that’s gonna have GPS based approaches in the near future, which the J model will have hopefully in the next couple of years. That’s huge,” Atherton said. “That’ll be huge for Kodiak to be able to have access to airplanes with that capability.”Atherton said Kodiak is the only other station where the J is being used. According to the Coast Guard, Kodiak’s four other aircraft should arrive by fall 2019 and the program aims to have 22 nationwide.
