Facebook A photo of Ryan Gosling smirking at the Oscars was one indelible image that emerged from the chaos of the best-picture mix-up this year — and the La La Land star has revealed what was behind his amused expression.The Canadian actor was standing alongside the film’s creative team onstage after their film was announced as winner of best picture when “people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd and guys were coming on with headsets and I felt like someone had been hurt,” he said, describing the moment as “surreal.”“I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head … and then I just heard Moonlight won and I was so relieved that I started laughing,” he said. Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Gosling made the revelation during an onstage chat with Adobe Chief Marketing Officer Ann Lewnes, as part of the tech company’s keynote presentation for its Adobe Summit in Las Vegas on Wednesday.“Truthfully, I was also so thrilled that Moonlight won. I know the director [Barry Jenkins] …I’ve worked with them before,” Gosling continued.“It’s such a groundbreaking film, made for a million dollars, and [an] incredible achievement and I’m so happy for them that they were being recognized.”In addition to revisiting Oscar night, Gosling’s chat with Lewnes was wide-ranging, with the actor joking about attending the workshop in hopes of learning Photoshop, ribbing her about rival Apple’s editing software Final Cut, discussing his experiences with social media and meme culture as well as tackling more serious topics like the importance of storytelling and taking risks in movies.Lewnes talked to actor and producer George Clooney at last year’s event.

Chennai: Handed a reality check in their last league fixture, defending champions Chennai Super Kings would bank on home advantage to seal their place in the summit clash when they take on a confident Mumbai Indians in the Qualifier 1 of the IPL here Tuesday. After the gruelling league phase of the ongoing IPL, the stage is set for the play-offs with CSK and MI clashing against each other for a place in May 12 final. There is hardly anything to differentiate between the two sides as both CSK and MI have won the title three times earlier. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuThe Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led CSK has been patchy after a strong start and finished its league engagements with a six-wicket defeat to Kings XI Punjab at Mohali on Sunday. But CSK will be happy to return to their den to take on table-topper MI, probably its biggest IPL rival, to decide which team seals a spot in the May 12 final. CSK boasts of a tremendous record at home this season, winning six of its seven games at the M A Chidambaram Stadium here and come Tuesday, it will act as a big advantage for the hosts. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersA defeat, however, will provide both the teams a second chance in Qualifier 2 on May 10. The CSK top-order has fired in fits and starts in the league phase and will need to come out all guns blazing against a formidable MI bowling attack that includes Jasprit Bumrah (17 wickets), Lasith Malinga (15 wickets), the Pandya brothers (Hardik 14 wickets and Krunal 10 wickets), leggie Rahul Chahar (10 wickets) and possibly Mitchell McClenaghan. Skipper Dhoni (CSK’s highest run-getter with 368 runs from 12 matches, 3 fifties) has been the mainstay of a rather inconsistent CSK batting unit and along with openers Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina holds the key in Saturday’s game as the usually fluent Ambati Rayudu has struggled to get going. CSK, however, will miss the services of the Kedar Jadhav, who sustained a freak shoulder injury in the match against Kings XI. But Jadhav wasn’t in the best of form and his absence would open up a spot for either Murali Vijay or Dhruv Shorey. Bowling has been CSK’s strong point so far this season and becomes even more potent on M A Chidambaram stadium’s sluggish wicket. Imran Tahir (21 scalps), the second highest-wicket taker this season after Kagiso Rabada (25), has been at the forefront of an effective CSK spin trio, also including veteran Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja (both with 13 wickets each). And the success of Tahir & Co against the powerful MI batting line-up could very well determine the course of the match. MI captain Rohit Sharma (386 runs), the impressive Quinton De Kock (492, third leading run-scorer), Hardik Pandya (380) and Kieron Pollard will be hard to stop once they get going and CSK’s bowlers have a tough task at hand. The onus would also be on the ever-improving Deepak Chahar, who has taken 16 scalps so far, to pick up early wickets for CSK and stifle the rival batting line-up. Going by the head-to-head record this year, MI holds the upperhand having won both its encounters against CSK in the preliminary phase. MI head coach Mahela Jayawardene would be aware of the job at hand and won’t take CSK lightly despite the Lions’ recent wobbly form. CSK will certainly receive a boost by playing the Qualifier 1 at home with the crowd fully backing the team in what promises to be a cracker of a contest. Teams (from): Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Anmolpreet Singh, Siddhesh Lad, Ankul Roy, Evin Lewis, Pankaj Jaiswal, Ben Cutting, Ishan Kishan, Aditya Tare, Rasikh Salam, Barinder Sran, Jayant Yadav, Beuran Hendricks and Lasith Malinga. Chennai Super Kings: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (C), Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Murali Vijay, Ravindra Jadeja, Dhruv Shorey, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Rituraj Gaikwad, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Imran Tahir, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Mohit Sharma, K M Asif, Deepak Chahar, N Jagadeesan, Scott Kuggeleijn.

About 60 experts from nearly 20 countries are participating in a three-day meeting opening today in Bangkok, hosted by the Information, Communication and Space Technology Division of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), to examine how the technology can help to track the flight patterns of migratory birds, believed to have played a role in spreading the H5N1 virus. Jointly organized with the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, the China National Space Administration and the Geo-informatics and Space Technology Development Agency of Thailand, the meeting will look at several potential uses of space-based technologies, such as geographic information systems, remote sensing and the Global Positioning System (GPS). These could, for example, help to monitor and determine the migratory routes of wild birds. To make an avian influenza monitoring and early warning system effective, a mechanism needs to be set up to systematically collect and share information and participants will discuss ways for countries to cooperate in using space technology, not only to track bird flu but also other infectious diseases, such as malaria and schistosomiasis, a highly debilitating parasitic illness that affects some 200 million people worldwide. Of the 319 human cases and 192 deaths so far, 256 and 165 respectively have been in the Asia-Pacific region. Experts fear the virus could cause a deadly worldwide pandemic if it mutated into a form more easily transmissible between humans, rather than from birds to people. For that reason, the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) recently held its second regional Avian and Human Influenza Simulation in Jakarta, Indonesia, with the support of the Government and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to model the impact of an evolving pandemic in the Asia Pacific region. The 70 participants from more than 15 countries and several UN agencies replicated the roles of government departments, the tourism industry, international bodies and other stakeholders, including tourists themselves. It followed a similar exercise held in Paris in March, which focused on Europe, the Middle East and Africa. With an estimated 10 million people travelling abroad at any given time and many more within their own countries, UNWTO keeps a close watch on health risks generally and bird flu specifically. While there has been no change in the level of alerts issued by the UN World Health Organization (WHO), the Tourism sector is already taking action to prepare effectively for the potential dangers. The simulation helped to identify possible gaps in response systems and to understand the pressures and dynamics in a real-world situation. It underscored the need for good planning, clear communications, a fully prepared and trained work force, and unambiguous procedures for customer and workplace safety. “The Avian Flu threat does not diminish and like other sectors of the economy tourism needs to strengthen its defences,” UNWTO Assistant Secretary-General Geoffrey Lipman said. “Every time we hold an awareness-building exercise of this nature we increase preparedness and strengthen our coordination mechanisms.” After conducting its next simulation exercise in Mexico from 19-20 September for the Americas, UNWTO will have trained together with governments and international agencies around the world. This will provide a solid base for intensified national simulations in 2008. 1 August 2007The United Nations is taking steps to promote the application of space technology to help Asian-Pacific countries fight bird flu, drawing on its potential as part of an integrated early-warning system to track the virus’s path in a region that has suffered by far the largest share of both human and avian infections in the world. read more

Rio Tinto has committed to generating $5 billion of additional free cash flow over the next five years from a productivity drive unveiled as part of its long-term strategy. In a presentation at an investor seminar in Sydney, Rio Tinto chief executive J-S Jacques underlined the strategy centred around a strong focus on safety, cash generation, a worldclass portfolio, commitment to capital discipline and the delivery of superior shareholder returns.Rio Tinto intends to raise productivity across its $50 billion portfolio of assets by focusing on operational excellence to generate superior shareholder returns through the cycle. This is expected to generate a total $5 billion of further free cash flow by the end of 2021 in addition to the cash cost reduction target of $2 billion across 2016 and 2017.Jacques said “Our strategy plays to our strengths: worldclass assets, a strong balance sheet along with commercial and operating excellence. A relentless focus on generating cash, together with capital discipline – prioritising value over volume – means that investors can expect us to deliver superior shareholder returns whilst continuing to invest through the cycle. We have the right team and performance culture in place to deliver this strategy.“We have placed our assets at the heart of the business to drive improved performance and ensure our resilience through the cycle. We are well on track to meet our target of $2 billion of cash cost savings by the end of next year. We are also taking advantage of any opportunity to generate value from mine through to market. Lifting the productivity on our $50 billion asset base creates a low risk and highly attractive return. It will deliver an additional $5 billion of free cash flow over the next five years.“We are continuing to reshape our portfolio. Following our announcement that we will sell our Lochaber smelter in Scotland for $410 million, the total of agreed divestments in 2016 now stands at $1.3 billion.”In addition to improving the performance of its asset base, Rio Tinto is also committed to investing in growing the business. In the near term, this will be delivered via three high-quality growth projects – Silvergrass (iron ore in Western Australia), Amrun (bauxite in Queensland) and Oyu Tolgoi (copper and gold in Mongolia). This investment underpins an annual average copper equivalent growth in excess of 2% between 2015 and 2025. Longer term, exploration remains a priority for Rio Tinto, with a commitment to maintain the Group’s successful exploration program.Other key points from the seminar include:FinancialCapital expenditure now expected to be less than $3.5 billion in 2016 (previously around $4 billion). Capital expenditure guidance of around $5 billion in 2017 and around $5.5 billion in 2018, unchanged from previous estimates. Guidance for 2019 is $5.5 billion.The 2017 production forecasts generate operating cash flow of around $10 billion based on Q3 2016 average prices.Investment in exploration continues in 17 countries and eight commodities.Divestments totalling $1.3 billion in 2016 bringing the total disposals to $5.3 billion completed since 2013 as part of the continuous process of reshaping the portfolio.Debt repurchases of $3 billion have been completed in October 2016, improving the debt profile with less than $1.5 billion maturing over the next three years.Iron OreRio Tinto set out the high-value options available to optimise its Pilbara system, with a focus on value over volume. This includes potential enhancement of mine capacity through productivity improvements and replacement of depletion through low capital cost brownfield investment, including Yandicoogina Oxbow and West Angelas Deposit F.The highly value-accretive, ~20 Mt/y Silvergrass project with a capital intensity of $29/t and an IRR of more than 100% remains on track for completion in the second half of 2017.Over the next three years, sustaining capital expenditure in the Pilbara is expected to be around $2.2 billion and replacement mine capital expenditure around $1 billion.One option following the brownfield replacement mines is the next greenfield Pilbara development, Koodaideri, with capacity of around 40 Mt/y and capital expenditure of around $2.2 billion from late 2019. First ore will potentially be available by 2021.The AutoHaul project is expected to advance progressively during 2017 and be fully implemented by the end of 2018.Pilbara shipment guidance for 2017 remains at 330-340 Mt of iron ore.AluminiumRio Tinto Aluminium remains globally the highest margin aluminium business.The Aluminium product group is on track to deliver 2016 cost savings of $300 million.Initiatives are underway in the Aluminium business to further reduce costs and increase productivity, including more than 250 initiatives in Bauxite and more than 500 initiatives in each of the Alumina refining and Aluminium smelting businesses.The Amrun bauxite project remains on schedule and on budget.Production guidance for 2017: aluminium 3.5 to 3.7 Mt; alumina 8.0 to 8.2 Mt and bauxite 48 to 50 Mt. read more
It may seem like we’ve all been down this road before, and we have. Google Drive, the search giant’s online cloud storage solution, is again rumored to be on the verge of launching as soon as next week. The service would be Google’s answer to cloud storage upstarts like Dropbox and Box.net, but would tie in with the existing ecosystem of Google services.The first time a true online storage solution from Google churned through the rumor mill was back in the dark ages of 2006. An internal Google tool code named Platypus was being fleshed out for a public release at the time. Without warning, the project was ended in 2008. According to the 2011 book In the Plex, Google killed Google Drive because it felt the idea of managing files was outdated. The success of Dropbox seems to indicate users are still happy with the file system paradigm.The newest report from GigaOm indicates Google is planning to offer 1GB of storage space for free, with larger plans available for a fee. This is odd considering Dropbox offers 2GB free of charge, and provides multiple ways for users to get more bytes for free. There will supposedly be a local client for GDrive, as well as a web interface that looks very much like Google Docs. No word on a mobile app, but Google will reportedly have an API available at launch. This means third-party apps will be possible on mobile devices, as well as desktops.Google already offers cloud storage of sorts for photos in Google+, documents in Docs, music in Google Play Music, and video in YouTube. Perhaps when you take those files out of the equation, 1GB of synced storage is enough for most people that are already in the Google ecosystem. Still, maybe it’s going to be one big April Fools joke that’s been six years in the making.via GigaOm read more
PATEROS — After the largest wildfire in Washington’s history destroyed hundreds of homes and burned hundreds of square miles in north-central Washington, donations poured in. Officials are thankful for the gifts, but they’re now pleading with the public to stop donating goods and asking them to donate money instead. They have enough, perhaps too much stuff. “I think donations might very well be a second disaster,” Jennifer Dolge, director of donor services and communications for the Community Foundation of North Central Washington, told the Wenatchee World. “There’s just so much stuff and now they have to figure out what to do with it all.”Donations for the Carlton Complex fire now fill up three warehouses, two gymnasiums, community distribution centers and several semi-trucks that have not been unloaded. Tens of thousands of diapers, truckloads of dog food and pallets of water came in the days after the fire destroyed homes in Pateros and the Methow Valley. Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers urged people to donate money instead of items. On Tuesday, Rogers said an army of volunteers and emergency workers worked from sunrise to late into the afternoon, moving donated items from the National Guard Armory in Okanogan to a larger warehouse at the fairgrounds. From there, it will go to the old Pateros grocery store, which will serve as a long-term solution for providing supplies to fire victims, thanks to the generosity of a donor, Rogers said. read more

Polling place inside Hazelwood Elementary/Middle School on primary day in Baltimore on Tuesday, June 24, 2014. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)A recent study has found that polling precincts in Maryland with higher percentages of minority voters had longer wait times during the 2012 presidential election, and that poor resource allocation was to blame.The study, “Election Day Long Lines: Resource Allocation,” which was produced by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law, considered the relationship between resource allocation, race, and wait times at polling places during the 2012 presidential election in three states: Florida, Maryland and South Carolina. The resources being considered were the number of voting machines, and the number of poll workers.In Maryland, of the 1,359 polling precincts studied, only 152 (about 11 percent) were in conformity with a state law requiring that polling places have one voting machine for every 200 registered voters.The study also found that precincts with higher percentages of Black or Latino voters tended to have fewer machines per voter compared to precincts with higher percentages of White voters. The disparity was more pronounced in areas with higher percentages of Latino voters than those with higher percentages of Black voters. However, in Baltimore County, one of two counties in the state most affected by longer wait times at the polls in 2012, “only precincts with a higher percentage of Black voting age citizens tended to have longer delays than precincts with a higher percentage of White voting age citizens,” according to the report.The link between race, resource allocation and wait times was similarly present in South Carolina and Florida.The report recommends that states do more to ensure that all polling sites have sufficient numbers of machines and poll workers—two factors affecting wait times—and that particular attention be paid to precincts with higher percentage of minority voters, which tend to have fewer resources allocated to firstname.lastname@example.org read more
There’s no word on whether Samsung plans to bring the Sero to Western markets, but the TV is going to be available in South Korea at the end of May for a price of 1.9M won (about $1600).A rotating TV set optimized for social media isn’t Samsung’s only unusual bet on the future of television. The company has also been working on modular TV display tiles that can be freely re-arranged to TV sets of any shape and size. Samsung showed off a variety of configurations at CES earlier this year, but has yet to announce details on the commercial availability of its modular TVs.Correction: 10:25am PT: An earlier version of this story erroneously stated that the TV would cost the equivalent of $16,300. The actual price is closer to $1600. Samsung unveiled its latest slate of lifestyle TVs at a press event in Seoul this week, and the company had a bit of a surprise to share: Samsung’s new Sero TV is a flat screen with a rotating display that’s meant to show off Instagram and Snapchat stories, or TikTok videos for that matter, vertically.Samsung’s new Sero TV can be synced with a phone via NFC, and then simply mirrors the phone’s display. In addition to video viewing, the company also pitched the TV as a solution for big-screen mobile gaming, browsing photos from social networks, or visiting shopping sites together with multiple people.Rotated back horizontally, the Sero TV can be used as a regular 43-inch TV screen. It also features a 4.1-channel, 60-watt speaker, and an integrated far-field microphone for access to Samsung’s Bixby smart assistant.

Initially thought as the result of long flight delays, shrinking seats and a general decline in civility, a new research claims that air rage occurs because of class inequality, that is, the division between business and economy class in the aircraft.“Air rage incidents are more likely when the plane has a first class cabin,” said lead researcher Katy DeCelles, associate professor at the University of Toronto in Canada.The findings showed that simply having a first-class compartment made an air rage incident nearly four times more likely, equivalent to the effect of a nine-hour flight delay. Also, the odds increase when economy passengers have to pass through first class to get to their seats, reinforcing the inequality. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In addition, the bad behaviour was higher not only for economy passengers, but for those in first class too. Other factors such as crowdedness, alcohol consumption and long flights can also contribute to disruptive incidents, the researchers said, but added that their impact was smaller than one might expect.The study, published in the journal of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, have implications for any physical environment where differences in class or status are apparent — such as a tiered stadium or a workplace where lower-level employees have to pass by executive offices to get to their cubicles. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixFurther, it also shows that even temporary experiences of inequality can have negative effects. The team used a database of thousands of documented disruptive flight incidents over several years for a large international airline. The incidents were serious enough to be considered a threat to onboard safety, such as passengers refusing to sit down, yelling obscenities at a flight attendant or interfering with smoke sensors so they could sneak a cigarette. Airlines can reconsider ways to reduce negative behaviour between different passenger groups by using a dual gating system, the researchers suggested.“The more you can use those dual gates to board airplanes, separating the first-class cabin from the economy cabin, you’re going to have less air rage in both cabins,” DeCelles concluded. read more
This year, just like any other, at 6:00pm on the first Thursday in December, thousands of Londoners gathered to enjoy the traditional lighting of the city’s Christmas tree in Trafalgar square. The 80-foot (25 meter) tree sparkles with hundreds of lights, and it comes — as it has every year since 1947 — as a gift from Norway.The tree is a symbol of gratitude to Britain for helping the Norwegian king during the Second World War.Trafalgar Square Christmas treeIn April 1940, as the Germans attacked Nybergsund, a small town where the government was staying, King Haakon VII escaped to England.The Germans invaded Norway, but the king along with the royal family and high profile members of the government took refuge in London.The Royal Family of Norway waving to the welcoming crowds from HMS Norfolk at Oslo.While in London, King Haakon established a government in exile to lead the resistance effort in Norway. For the king, the news was broadcast in Norwegian, and he regularly received messages and information that was vital for the resistance movement in his home country.King Haakon became the very symbol of the Norwegian resistance and inspiration of the Norwegian people’s will to fight for freedom and independence.King Haakon VII and Crown Prince Olav seeking shelter on the outskirts of Molde during a German bombing raid on the city in April 1940.After the liberation of Norway on June 7, 1945, and after five years in exile, the king returned to his country and received a warm welcome by the Norwegian people. He had to deal with the destruction of the country wrought by the war and the ongoing efforts to rebuild.However, neither he nor the Norwegians forgot how essential the British help in the liberation of their country was. Therefore, every year since 1947, Norway sends a giant Norwegian spruce to their British friends as a token of gratitude, celebration, and commemoration of the British support during World War II.Crowds of tourists flock to the famous Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square, London, UK on a cold, wet day in December.The annual Christmas gift became a symbol of a long-lasting friendship between the two countries. The tree is chosen with great care many years before it is shipped to the UK. It is dubbed the “queen of the forest”, and it is usually a 50 to 60-year-old Norway spruce.The cutting of the tree is a ceremony held in the forest of Normarka, just outside of Oslo. This November, among the audience of carol-singing children, the ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Oslo, Marianne Borgen; the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Lindsey Hall; and the British Ambassador to Norway, Richard Wood.During the ceremony, Marianne Borgen said: “It smells beautiful and we think it’s 80 years old so it started to grow during the Second World War – which is very symbolic…Our forester is very, very competent and they chose this tree around 20 years ago.”Lewisham Choral Society singing carols in December 2010. Photo by Ritawestcott CC BY-SA 3.0She added: “They chose around 15 trees which could possibly be good enough to go to Trafalgar Square and only one of these 15 trees will be good enough…It’s important for us that the tree looks nice…I think they also talk to it and hug it sometimes – so this tree has really been spoiled over the years it has been in Oslo and I think it will be a wonderful tree at Trafalgar Square.”For many Londoners, the lighting of the Christmas tree and carol singing in Trafalgar Square is the beginning of the countdown to Christmas. Many of them gather there to participate in the celebrations, donate to charities, and sing carols. The tree is removed on the Twelfth Night of Christmas and taken for recycling.Read another story from us: The Story of Yule – How Vikings Did ChristmasTo participate in the annual celebration of friendship, many cities of Norway donate Christmas trees all over the UK.
