first_imgA teenager who makes blocks was remanded to prison on Friday when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan to answer a charge of possession of narcotics.Emaka Foster, 18, of Lot 673 Guyhoc, and Lot 97 C Field, Sophia, Georgetown, appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.He pleaded not guilty to the offence which alleged that on 29 June, 2016 at Norton Street, Lodge, Georgetown, he had in his possession 33 grams of cannabis.The Prosecution’s case stated that on the day in question, Police acting on information conducted a search on the teen when the seeds, stems and leaves were discovered in his right side pocket.The unrepresented teen told the Chief Magistrate that the Prosecution facts were inaccurate. He said that on the day in question he was at work when a Police vehicle approached him and two other men, one of whom was selling the drugs.Foster added that the man standing with him upon seeing the Police threw the black plastic bag at him and ran.He refuted the claim of being caught with the drugs in his pocket but instead Foster made it known that the drugs was found besides him.He was nonetheless remanded to prison and the case will continue on July 13.last_img read more

The Death of an African King in Exile

first_imgThe world learned last week of the recent death of King Kigeli V, the last traditional monarch of Rwanda.When the Belgians colonized Ruanda-Urundi (as the nation was called back then), the Rwandan monarchy, then headed by Kigeli’s uncle, was deposed and exiled.The colonists also created a caste system that favored the slim-nosed Tutsi and placed them in positions of authority. Hitherto, the Rwandan monarchy had ruled as non-tribal.After the death of the exiled king, Tutsi chiefs crowned Kigeli V to his own surprise and that of the Belgians, who felt bypassed given their efforts to eliminate the monarchy.Kigeli V was coroneted in 1959 by the chiefs of his people, the Tutsi. He was 23 years old. In short order, Hutus in turn staged an insurrection, under the impression that the Belgians had imposed Kigeli upon them, adding insult to their injury. Thousands of Tutsis were killed, and Kigeli V eventually fled the country. It is worth mentioning here that Belgium itself remains a monarchy to this day. Its reigning king is Prince Philippe, Count of Flanders, crowned July 21, 2013. Several other countries, including Great Britain, Sweden and Denmark, still have monarchs. Many African tribes also still have ceremonial kings such as the Toro of Uganda and, of course, King Mutebe of Buganda. These exist even under democratic governments, while other nations in Africa are ruled solely by monarchs (Swaziland, Lesotho). Be that as it may, the Belgians displaced the Tutsi dynasty and (some allege) supported a Hutu-led insurrection that eventually led to the infamous genocide that tore both Rwanda and Burundi apart and left a million dead.Kigeli V and his chancellor moved from country to country seeking political asylum, finally settling in the United States, with the help of an unlikely American partner. A non-English speaker, the exiled king relied on his advisor to translate as he spent most of his life in the USA helping Rwandan refugees also seeking asylum and advocating for peace and national unity. The king’s advisor also worked part-time as a mattress salesman at Sears while Kigeli V lived off food stamps in welfare housing.When Paul Kagame took over Rwanda in 1999, he told the king he could return, but not as king. Kigeli told him that was for the people to decide; that if his people wanted him back as king, he’d be willing to serve, if only as a ceremonial head. If they did not, he would return as an ordinary citizen.Kagame told the king he would get back to him.When journalists asked Kagame in 2003 why he had not allowed the king to return, he took offense. “You are trying to make him more important than he is,” Kagame said. “For him to wait for my answer whether he should return is none of my business. I was not among those that dethroned him and therefore have no authority and obligation to reinstate him.” “Kagame no doubt knows…”, the Washingtonian Magazine reported in a 2013 feature on Kigeli V, “that the symbolism of the monarchy—with its open embrace of Hutu, Tutsi, and a third group, the Twa, as equals—could prove powerfully alluring to segments of the population left out of the Rwandan comeback. But only in the event of a restoration.” “The monarchy has come to be seen potentially as a source of moderation and ethnic reconciliation, and the regime views that very much as a threat,” a Human Rights Watch field officer in Rwanda told The Washingtonian. “In Rwanda, you cannot openly embrace the king; you cannot call for the king’s return. You’ll be thrown in jail.” The King died waiting for a response at 80 years old on welfare in America, living in subsistance housing on food stamps.What would it have cost Kagame to allow the old man to come home to live and die in dignity? Would it have diminished his government? No, it would have been magnanimous – kind, generous, big-hearted of him; and would have enhanced his statesmanship in the comity of nations. At home, this single gesture could even have helped heal the wounds between Hutu and Tutsi.Other observers did not see the king as having been a threat to Kagame, since he was now elderly and largely unknown among the youthful population, having been exiled since 1962. Even if a successor had been named after Kigeli’s death, monarchies and democratic governments have been known to coexist.But no, Kagame could not see that far. These African leaders really must be careful how they carry on. What goes around comes around. The biblical concept of reaping what one has sown is very, very real, and this business of fearing every other symbol of leadership but oneself is absolutely ridiculous—and most unfortunate.Kagame should know that national unity is his greatest asset; and that today he may be the darling of the West but tomorrow . . .As for the king without a country, perhaps Kagame will finally have the decency to bury King Kigeli with the honor he so richly deserves – despite the very terse statement his government issued on the king’s passing. The government of Rwanda stands ready to offer any assistance necessary, it read in part.Perhaps King Kigeli will finally be welcomed home, if only in death.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Mourinho signs contract extension at Manchester United

first_imgUnited are a distant second in the Premier League to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City this season but are still in the FA Cup and the Champions League.“I am really honoured and proud to be Manchester United manager,” Mourinho, 54, said in a club statement. “I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to (executive vice-chairman) Mr (Ed) Woodward for the recognition of my hard work and dedication. I am delighted they feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future.“We have set very high standards — winning three trophies in one season (including the Community Shield) — but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for. We are creating the conditions for a brilliant and successful future for Manchester United.” Mourinho, who was appointed in May 2016 on a three-year deal, replaced Louis van Gaal with a brief to return the club to the pinnacle of the English game.The 20-time league champions have not won the Premier League title since Alex Ferguson’s last season in charge in 2012-13. – Workrate –Woodward said the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss, whose new deal includes an option for a further year, had already achieved a great deal in his time at Old Trafford.Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho kisses the trophy after the UEFA Europa League final in 2017 © AFP/File / Odd ANDERSEN“His workrate and professionalism are exceptional and he has embraced the club’s desire to promote top quality young players to the first team,” said Woodward.“He has brought an energy and a sense of purpose to everything that he does and I am sure that will continue to bring results for the fans and the club.”Earlier this month Mourinho dismissed reports he may walk out on United this coming close season as “garbage”.Mourinho had looked an unhappy figure as United’s title bid faltered and they suffered a shock League Cup exit at Championship side Bristol City.There had been suggestions that Mourinho was disappointed at the relative lack of spending power at his disposal, claims which he also denied.And Mourinho was upset at suggestions that his decision to live in a hotel, rather than finding a home in Manchester, was a sign of a lack of professionalism or commitment to the job.Earlier this week United signed Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan to add to their well-stocked forward line featuring the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard.Sanchez, who had previously been strongly linked with a move to Manchester City, is in the squad to play Yeovil Town in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Jose Mourinho, pictured in December 2017, became the first Manchester United manager in history to win a major trophy in his first season when he secured the League Cup © AFP/File / Paul ELLISLondon, United Kingdom, Jan 25 – Jose Mourinho has signed a contract extension that will keep him at Manchester United until at least 2020, the club said Thursday, ending rumours he is unhappy at Old Trafford.Mourinho became the first United manager in history to win a major trophy in his first season when he secured the League Cup last year, and he also led the club to victory in the Europa League, the only competition they had never won.last_img read more

The Case Against Links

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… marshall kirkpatrick 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Tags:#Blogging#web center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Links – are they a net negative for readers online? That’s the idea being deliberately explored by a number of publishers, says writer Nicholas Carr today.The iconoclastic author says that he has grown sympathetic to the thinking of Steve Gillmor, the almost incomprehensibly future-bound sage tech journalist who has argued for years that “links are dead.” Links within articles are a distraction and imply that the reader ought to leave what they are reading to read something else, Carr says. Placing links at the end of articles is more respectful of a person’s intentions and concentration. Do you think that’s true? I’ll skip putting links in this post, until the end, and you can let me know how it feels.If you’ll forgive me a block-quote, Carr explains it like this:“Links are great conveniences, as we all know (from clicking on them compulsively day in and day out). But they’re also distractions. Sometimes, they’re big distractions – we click on a link, then another, then another, and pretty soon we’ve forgotten what we’d started out to do or to read. Other times, they’re tiny distractions, little textual gnats buzzing around your head. Even if you don’t click on a link, your eyes notice it, and your frontal cortex has to fire up a bunch of neurons to decide whether to click or not. You may not notice the little extra cognitive load placed on your brain, but it’s there and it matters. People who read hypertext comprehend and learn less, studies show, than those who read the same material in printed form. The more links in a piece of writing, the bigger the hit on comprehension.”I think reading posts with links at the end does make my brain feel different, more relaxed. Angels and DevilsAt the same time, links in text are the standard practice for a reason, right? Inline references allow a reader to explore, to look under the covers of a train of thought, to familiarize themselves with something casually referenced, in the middle of reading. It’s good to point at things sometimes, maybe even often. (In some cases, the writing on a site can be so bad that readers just want to find a link to whatever the blogger has discovered and leave to see it for themselves. I hope we always add more value than that here.)I often advise new writers on our staff to place links inline with the reader’s mental voice and vocal emphasis in mind. Imagine that a link is like a chorus of angels singing – the words you link are going to be underlined and appear in a different color after all – and make those angels sing at just the right time in the sentence. Maybe those are little devils, though, and not angels after all.I like to add links out to other sources at every opportunity in order to enrich what I’m writing, to broaden the conversation, and frankly because I think linking to other blogs is a good faith way to encourage other blogs to link to us. To act as if our blog is the only place online to learn about what’s important is the height of arrogance and a real disservice to readers. Internal linking is good business practice, but I think a balance is best.Search indexing is largely powered by links, and the words linked inline are key. That’s a tough one. Links between documents are the foundation of much of the most innovative analysis being done online, but maybe those links could just be placed well away from a body of text.Few of those other reasons for linking require that it be done in the body of the text, though. Most major blogs that put links in the footer of a post appear to do so as a formality, just to acknowledge debt to another blog but in the least likely way that readers would click off site to visit those other sources.Maybe it doesn’t have to be that way. Maybe links could be added tastefully and well to the footer of posts. It might not be as good for machines, but it could be better for the human brain. Linking may be what blogging is largely about – but let’s be honest: if links to read more were always found and well-placed at the end of articles, wouldn’t you get used to it as a reader?One of Steve Gillmor’s most compelling arguments, to me, has been that links point the reader to a specific definition of a concept. That if a reader is really interested, they can search for those terms used and gain a far broader understanding of the topic.What do you think? Could the format of online text publishing be changed so radically and still maintain its vibrant culture of democratized publishing, rich knowledge and frictionless discovery? Could publishers put links at the end of articles and still be participating in conversations, as opposed to the awful arrogance of link-free traditional media?Let us know what you think about this in comments below. We do still believe in commenting, right?These are still relatively early days for web publishers, all of this should be open to debate. And it’s exciting to re-evaluate what we take for granted, isn’t it?Now here’s some links:Nicholas Carr’s post today – Experiments in Delinkification (ReadWriteWeb’s previous posts that cite Carr)Steve Gillmor (ReadWriteWeb’s previous posts that cite Gillmor)There…now how did that feel?last_img read more

Flickr Fixes Facebook Integration With Batch Uploads

first_imgLast month, social photo-sharing site Flickrfinally added some long-awaited Facebook integration to its service, allowing users to simultaneously post photos on both Flickr and Facebook with one upload. But there was a small problem with the way that the new feature was set up: it basically spammed your Facebook Wall with post after post about your new photos. Today, that problem has been fixed, reports Flickr. For those users who uploaded more than one photo at a time (and that’s most of us!), using the new Facebook integration feature made each and every new Flickr photo uploaded its own individual post on your Facebook Wall and friends’ News Feed. After processing a big set of photos, your Facebook page would end up covered in nothing but Flickr posts. That issue has been fixed so that it now identities these multi-picture posts as batches.Over on the Flickr blog, Consumer Marketing Manager Larissa Zimberoff writes, “When we first launched we sent updates for every upload but have recently made a change so that we only send an update for each batch of uploads.” It’s a line to make any Flickr and Facebook user rejoice. Other Reminders: Getagging and Twitter IntegrationZimberoff also took the time to highlight a couple of other Flickr features which users may not be aware of, including geotagging and Twitter integration. Users can geotag their photos (add location information to them) by using Flickr’s Organizr – just drag and drop the photos on the map where they were taken. Note that some smartphones automatically geotag photos for you, without any additional configuration.Twitter integration can be achieved via an app called Flickr2Twitter, which tweets the subject line of your photo along with a link. How to Turn it (Back) OnBut really, today’s blog post could read “We fixed the Facebook integration,” and that would have been enough for us. To turn this feature back on, head over here and then click “Sharing and Extending” (far right). Then click the “edit” button next to Facebook to switch activity updates back on. Or if you’ve never added Facebook integration to begin with, click the “Connect” button to get started. sarah perez Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditcenter_img Related Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#Facebook#Photo Sharing Services#web#Yahoo last_img read more

Hulu Plus is Coming to Android

first_imgHulu Plus on Android: This Could be Big!An Android app will be an important launch for the streaming service, a coalition between Hollywood studios and jointly owned by NBC Universal, News Corp., The Walt Disney Company and Providence Equity Partners, a private equity firm that invested in Hulu in 2009.On the desktop, Hulu had long been a free, ad-supported service, but in November 2010, it officially launched a premium version called Hulu Plus (previously in a closed beta), which offers back-catalog episodes of many popular shows. The service was available for $9.99 a month at the time. As Hulu continued to fight fierce competition from Netflix and find the sweet spot in its pricing, the company soon lowered Hulu Plus to $7.99 a month only weeks after its launch.Hulu Plus is now available on a number of devices, including desktop computers, iOS devices, as mentioned above, a wide range of TVs, Blu-ray players and media center boxes, plus gaming consoles like the Sony Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Hulu Plus vs. Netflix: Who Will Reach Android First?So why is Hulu Plus’ Android debut so important? For two reasons: one, it may beat Netflix to the Android platform, and two, Android users are without a iTunes-like ecosystem of professional, Hollywood-produced content.?Netflix, Hulu’s top competitor to date, offers streaming movies and TV shows to its subscribers, also on a wide range of devices, including the iPad and iPhone. It, however, has not made it to Android as of yet. According to a November post on the Netflix company blog, the Android platform is simply not secure enough for the content protection required by the Hollywood studios. “The hurdle has been the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android,” said Netflix’s Greg Peters of its product development division. “The same security issues that have led to piracy concerns on the Android platform have made it difficult for us to secure a common Digital Rights Management (DRM) system on these devices.”No doubt Hulu Plus has those same concerns as it too must cater to Hollywood’s overly-paranoid demands for content protection. (If Hollywood isn’t convinced by iTunes that providing people an affordable, easy alternative to piracy opens up wallets, then nothing will.)But will Hulu find a technical solution to the Android problem before Netflix does? More recently, Netflix announced it was working on an HTML5 initiative. (HTML is the markup language used on the Web. The newest revision, HTML5, includes a

Creating the Film Look of Donald Glover’s “Atlanta”

first_imgThese interviews take an insightful look into how the filmmakers behind “Atlanta” created the their own unique style and look.Cover image via FX Networks.In some great interviews with No Film School, Brian Hallett, and Pro Video Coalition, Director of Photography Christian Sprenger offers some fascinating insights into how he worked with director Hiro Murai and Donald Glover to create Atlanta’s signature look and style.Fresh on the heels of Atlanta’s success, let’s explore how they were able to develop the cinematic look that has helped launch an Emmy-award winning program.The Camera and LightsImage via ARRI.I shot on the ARRI Amira with Kowa Prominar Spherical Prime lenses. Keslow Camera was our rental house. Lighting-wise, I would say 75% of the show was lit with LEDs. Our gaffer Cody Jacobs works very closely with LightGear and we built a lot of custom fixtures, LED gem-balls and LED pancakes, and little fixtures that we could hide or quickly toss up on the ceiling (via PVC).As much a stylistic choice as an industry-standard selection, Sprenger and Murai’s decision to shoot on ARRI Amira with Kowa Cine Prominar lenses gave the team the same production-level look of modern film and television — along with some leeway for their push process. Also with their LED-heavy production, the team made use of Cineo Trucolor sources and ARRI SkyPanel lights (the latter of which you can read more about here).Under Exposure ProcessingImage via FX.We were shooting dark complexions and a lot of times night exteriors so our DIT Chris Hoyle would live grade the images back up those three or four stops to normal exposure to see what it was going to look like. Being able to see our noise floor and see where the bottom was without completely destroying the image was very helpful (via NFS).With the ARRI Amira, Sprenger worked with a bumped-up ISO (around 1280 or 1600) while underexposed three or four stops to create a temperamental, foggy film look. When shooting with a pushed ISO and underexposed footage, Sprenger cautions that it can quickly become difficult to see through the camera’s eyepiece and monitor the footage, which can become almost completely black.On-Set Color GradingImage via FX.We essentially didn’t work with a post house. We did it all of it on set and had a post PA send everything out to Los Angeles. It was a totally seamless way to work and integral for the look of the show (via NFS).From the same interview with NFS, Sprenger explains their on-set color grading workflow, which basically created a post house on set. The team used “a combination of DaVinci Resolve and Pomfort Livegrade,” which allowed them to build “custom curves to apply to the Rec.709 image and [they] would then send those baked images out for dailies and editorial use.”Bonus: Creating the Atlanta Trailer TransitionAs an added bonus, any fan of the series is surely fond of the viral sensation Atlanta trailer, which recently came out to promote the much-anticipated second season. While the effect seems like a tricky VFX-heavy concept, it’s actually a pretty ingenious technique that combines in-camera tricks and some simple green screen compositing. To get the results of the final video above, the team at Cinecom.net have done the legwork of recreating the effect and outlining a step-by-step process to make it on your own. Check out the video tutorial below, and read the full article breakdown at PremiumBeat.If you’re interested in more info on the post-production process for “This is America,” check out PremiumBeat’s interview with editor Ernie Gilbert (and see if you can catch the hidden cuts)!For more production insights, interviews, and resources, check out some of these articles.7 Things to Consider When Shooting on Retro Film Stock5 Tips for Shooting a Period Film on a Tight BudgetProduction Tip: How to Calibrate Your Monitors on SetTips from the Team Behind the Ruth Bader Ginsberg Sundance DocumentaryYour Guide to Working with Project Files in DaVinci Resolvelast_img read more
