Definitively power ranking the World Cup groups based on their deathliness

So, accordingly, here are the groups in order of difficulty.1. Group G — Germany, Ghana, USA, Portugal.2. Group D – Uruguay, Italy, Costa Rica, England.3. Group C – Colombia, Ivory Coast, Japan, Greece.4. Group B — Spain, Chile, Australia, Holland.5. Group E – Switzerland, Ecuador, Honduras, France.6. Group A — Brazil, Cameroon, Mexico, Croatia.7. Group F – Argentina, Nigeria, Iran, Bosnia.8. Group H — Belgium, Algeria, South Korea, RussiaN.B.

First shipment of chemical weapons leaves Syria

first_imgTHE FIRST SHIPMENT of chemical material has been removed from Syria under a deal to rid the country of its chemical arsenal, the joint mission overseeing the disarmament said today.The removal was carried out as the head of Al-Qaeda’s Syria affiliate, the Al-Nusra Front, called for an end to four days of clashes between rebels and the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in which at least 274 people were killed.“A first quantity of priority chemical materials was moved from two sites to the port of Latakia for verification and was then loaded onto a Danish commercial vessel today,” the joint United Nations-Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (UN-OPCW) mission said in a statement.It added that the boat had sailed for international waters.The removal of the chemical material from Syria’s coastal Latakia comes after a planned 31 December deadline for the operation to begin was missed.Tuesday’s shipment “initiates the process of transfer of chemical materials from the Syrian Arab Republic to locations outside its territory for destruction,” the UN-OPCW statement said.The material taken from Syria today will be held at sea until additional chemicals arrive. The shipment is being escorted by Chinese, Danish, Norwegian and Russian vessels, the mission said.Syria agreed last year to a US-Russian deal to hand over its chemical weapons.The agreement came after the United States threatened military action in response to an August 2012 chemical weapons attack outside Damascus that killed hundreds of people and was blamed by Washington on the Syrian regime.Under the plan, the chemicals taken from Latakia will be transported to an Italian port and transferred onto a US vessel, where they will be destroyed.A crew member of the Danish warship Esbern Snare wears a protective mask as they escorted the Syrian chemical weapons. (Pic: AP Photo/Petros Karadjias)The mission has a June deadline to complete the dismantling of Syria’s chemical weapons programme, which includes the deadly nerve agent sarin and mustard gas.At OPCW headquarters in the Hague, director-general Ahmet Uzumcu said the first removal was an “important step”.“I encourage the Syrian government to maintain the momentum to remove the remaining priority chemicals, in a safe and timely manner, so that they can be destroyed outside of Syriaas quickly as possible,” he said in a statement.Continued clashesElsewhere in the country, clashes continued between members of the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and a coalition of moderate and Islamist rebels.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported heavy fighting in Raqa, the only provincial capital to fall from regime hands and a one-time ISIL stronghold.The fighting comes after months of tensions over alleged abuses by ISIL, which has been accused of kidnapping and killing civilian and rival rebels.© – AFP 2014Read: UNICEF calls for world to protect Syrian children from ‘broken futures’ >IN PICTURES: Over 100,000 dead as Syria sees another year of violence >last_img read more

Election Observers Report More voter secrecy should come

first_img The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo #MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 19, 2016 – Ballots for voting in the Turks and Caicos islands are not secret enough and the Elections Observer Mission team on Saturday reported that it is time for a thorough review of the Elections Ordinance now that we have had two of this new style of voting where there are 10 districts and all island candidates district.“We watch the process very carefully, and the way it’s done would avoid tracing ballots.  We understand that the ballot papers are kept under lock and key for a year, and if there’s no election petitions or court cases then destroyed.  But we’re just slightly concerned that there may be a perception that because the voter identification number is recorded on the voter ballot paper that it could technically be seen by someone during the count and how they voted identifying them.”The team of six sent in by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association visited 19 of the 21 polling stations countrywide and cited that while the workers were through, mostly female and dedicated, there were differences in how polling stations were managed including how signatures were written on the counterfoil of the ballots themselves.Jim Wells, (MLA) head of the mission was quick to clarify that this did not hamper or compromise the process; he said it was just inconsistent as was the general layout of the voting centers and this slowed things down.   The counting process was called transparent but slow, especially when it came to the all island district.   And there were things being done which the law says should not have been done, including having Police officers within the polling place.Wells says quite a bit has been done correctly in the 2016 TCI General Election, and spoke to the excruciatingly long wait for some results.  “There was one technical issue that may have failed in the sense that at all polling stations, some voters put their ballot paper in the wrong box.  So therefore it wasn’t possible to announce the individual constituency results until you counted the All Island results, because obviously you didn’t know whether there would be enough votes in the All Island box to have an impact on the constituency result.  So you can understand the problem there.   The second issue of course was that the counting of the All Island result was very long and complex.”Jim Wells, who is a parliamentarian himself, says due to the type of voting we have in the Turks and Caicos, the results will always take longer than other territories.

Looming double election could determine fate of Osakas IR

first_img Huawei Japan joins Kansai Economic Federation with eye on World Expo 2025 and Osaka IR Japan to conduct nationwide prefectural survey to confirm IR intentions Load More RelatedPosts Governor Matsui has faced opposition from the Komeito party regarding his support for an “Osaka Metropolis” referendum that would in essence abolish Osaka city in its current state and reorganize the area. The Mainichi newspaper has reported that Mayor Hirofumi Yoshimura, who is a member of the same party, may resign his office as early as 8 March – midway through his term – so that he and the governor can both run in a unified local election in April and effectively switch places.“The only option is to listen to the people again,” said Governor Matsui. “The prefecture and city have acted as one so there will be no change whether I am governor or mayor.”There is precedent for such a dramatic move with former Osaka Restoration Association representative, Toru Hashimoto, making the transition from governor to mayor in 2011.Osaka prefecture/city has successfully attracted the 2025 World Expo, and it is expected that the current governor and mayor will be successful in a double election. No genuine opposing candidates are likely.The deadline for deciding if it the double election does indeed go ahead is this Thursday 7 March. The decision will be made after assessing the Komeito party’s stance at the legal council meeting. There are many related parties and it will be a particularly important election for the fate of IR businesses.The prefecture and the city have indeed acted as one entity regarding the initiative to attract an IR to Yumeshima in 2024. If elected, both will be appointed to four year terms. If that happens, the path to Osaka’s IR will be smooth sailing. Osaka approves Yumeshima site for commercial development in latest IR move A “double election” that would determine Osaka’s IR fate is becoming ever more likely.Osaka prefecture Governor Ichiro Matsui, representative of the Osaka Restoration Association local party, has declared that there will be a double election for the positions of Osaka prefecture’s governor and Osaka city’s mayor.last_img read more

Seth Rogen launches his own weed company Houseplant to instill public love

first_imgHe finally did it!Let’s just say we always knew that comedy mogul Seth Rogen would go the extra mile and do what is necessary for the thing he loves the most – marijuana.Recently, This Is The End director got together with his pal Evan Goldberg and announced on Wednesday, March 27, the launch of Houseplant, a recreational Canadian cannabis company in collaboration with Ontario-based grower Canopy Growth. “Houseplant is the result of years of experience and dedication, with each element and expression thoughtfully designed to make it easier for people to learn to love cannabis as much as Houseplant does,” the company said in a press releaseThe two Vancouver natives have previously collaborated in two popular film projects including “Superbad, Pineapple Express, The Interview and now they have come together for their common love – cannabis.”Houseplant is a passion we’ve brought to life through drive and dedication,” Rogen said in the press release. “Every decision we’ve made for the business reflects the years of education, first-hand experience and respect we have for cannabis,” he added. Marijuana can be used in the treatment of stress, depression and anxiety. [Representational image]Creative Commons.The first strain of cannabis the new company will introduce with Canopy Growth is Houseplant Sativa. This will be available for purchase in early April through regulated retailers and online in British Columbia. The company added that Houseplant Hybrid and Houseplant Indica strains, along with soft gels and pre-rolled joints, will follow throughout the year.”We are so proud to be launching in Canada, our home,” Goldberg said. “After spending five years diligently preparing for the launch of this company, we’re excited to be able to share our passion for cannabis with Canadians in this way.”Last month, Canopy said it’s working with lifestyle authority and television personality Martha Stewart to develop hemp-derived CBD products. Its partnership with Stewart stemmed from an earlier relationship with entertainer and cannabis icon Snoop Dogg.Canopy’s subsidiary Tweed began selling three varieties of cannabis in 2016 under the “Leafs by Snoop” brand, including varieties dubbed “Sunset,” “Ocean View” and “Palm Tree” in a nod to the rapper’s California heritage.last_img read more

Amazon Prime Video Gets 2500 Hours of Jim Henson Co Content With

first_img Latido Acquires ‘Historias Lamentables,’ From ‘Champions’ Javier Fesser (EXCLUSIVE) Popular on Variety Eight titles are available in all 68 countries on Prime Video (including the U.S.): “Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series” (13 episodes), based on the original, live-action puppet show; plus specials “Doozer Music,” “Fraggle Songs,” “The Song of the Cloud Forest,” “Living with Dinosaurs,” “Lighthouse Island” and “Monster Maker.”Available in all those territories except the U.S. are: the five seasons of “Fraggle Rock”; “The Storyteller,” an anthology series starring John Hurt in the titular role telling European folk tales to his cynical dog; “The Storyteller: Greek Myths,” starring Michael Gambon in the spin-off series; puppet series “The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss”; and “Mother Goose Stories,” a live-action puppet series featuring nursery rhymes.Available on Prime Video with the exception of Canada is “Pajanimals,” a 26-episode series for preschoolers following four characters embarking on adventures of discovery.The additional content on Amazon Prime Video comes after Jim Henson Co. last month released sci-fi series “Farscape” — covering all four seasons with 88 episodes plus the mini-series finale — on the platform.Jim Henson Co. is distributing its library programming on Amazon’s video service through Prime Video Direct, the ecommerce giant’s self-distribution program.As of April 1, Amazon changed the payment structure for Prime Video Direct to reward the best-performing content with higher royalty rates while reducing them for less-popular titles. The new rates will range between 4 and 10 cents per hour streamed in the U.S. on Prime Video, based on a calculation of the relative “customer engagement ranking” score for each title. Previously, Amazon paid Prime Video Direct content partners opting for Prime Video distribution a base rate of 6 cents per hour.Initially, when Amazon first launched the program in 2016, it offered content suppliers flat-rate royalties of 15 cents per hour of video streamed in the U.S. (and 6 cents in other territories) for content in Prime Video. Related How Netflix’s ‘Dark Crystal’ Production Team Connected Prequel Series to the Original A wealth of Jim Henson Co.’s kid-friendly programming is landing on Amazon’s Prime Video service — but there are several notable exclusions for the U.S. because of other licensing deals.Beginning Thursday (April 4), Amazon Prime Video will stream 2,500 hours of the Jim Henson Co.’s classic programming on the streaming platform, including popular specials and series. That will mostly be available in 67 different territories, including Canada, U.K., Australia, New Zealand and the Nordics, but much of the content is not available to U.S. users. The programming is available on a dedicated Amazon landing page for Jim Henson Co. at this link, available to subscribers of Prime or the standalone Amazon Prime Video service.The new bucket of content encompasses the original five seasons of “Fraggle Rock” — all 96 episodes — as well as “The Storyteller,” “The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss” and “Mother Goose Stories.” What’s important to note, however, is that none of those shows are available to Prime Video members in the U.S. because of rights restrictions. For example, the original “Fraggle Rock” seasons are available through HBO in the States. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The Evangelion Bullet Train Will Pull Into The Station One Final Time

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target If you haven’t been paying attention (or aren’t a huge Evangelion fan) you may have missed the fact that there’s an Evangelion-branded bullet train in Japan right now. In fact, it’s been there for two years, in fact, and it’s been successfully taking passengers from the Shin-Osaka Station via the JR-West line to Hakata Sogosharyosho station during that time. It’s also been inviting Evangelion fans to take part in some very cool festivities while operational. Unfortunately, it will be making its final stop as of May 13, so if you’ve ever dreamt of a special ride on a Japanese Evangelion-themed bullet train, you might want to pencil in a trip to Japan in the future.The bullet train had special Evangelion branding throughout the train, Misato’s wine as a refreshment, announcements voiced by Kaworu, and a special Evangelion cockpit with what looks like some touch-based games to play while speeding along in the train. But before the train ends up pulling into the station one final time, it will be seen in a kids’ anime called Shinkalion, an anime series that features transforming trains. Evangelion director Hideaki Anna himself is looking forward to the collaboration and actually worked alongside mecha designer Ikuto Yamashita for the 500 TYPE EVA train, so it makes sense that he should want to see the design immortalized. He’s looking forward to seeing the transformation scene happen, as we all probably are.You can see the train’s outside, interior, and special cockpit in the video below, but if you’re in the area you may want to spring for a ticket before it ends its two-year run. It’s too cool of a collaboration to pass up, especially if you’re a huge Evangelion fan. Hope there aren’t any Angels around to destroy the train before it takes its final trip.center_img How AMC’s ‘The Terror’ Uses American History to Delive…33 Killed in Suspected Arson Attack on Kyoto Animation Studio in Japan last_img read more

Wonder Woman 2s Villain Henry Cavills Future More DCEU News

first_img Even with the DCEU’s recent setbacks, the franchise still seems to have a lot of life in it. Yes, Justice League was disappointing for a number of reasons, but DC also had one of the best superhero movies of 2017. And remember, that’s in a year that saw Logan, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and Thor: Ragnarok. It took something really special to stand out in that crowd and that’s what Wonder Woman was. As the cinematic universe’s only critical and commercial hit, it’s no surprise there’s a lot of excitement surrounding the sequel. And it sounds like a villain has been confirmed.The Hashtag Show reports that Warner Bros. is looking to include Cheetah in the Wonder Woman sequel. As with most DC characters, Cheetah has gone through a few different incarnations and identities over her more-than-half-century-long history. The version in the film is reported to be Barbara Ann Minerva, a British archaeologist. In the comics, she was a friend to Diana until she was captured by a plant god during an expedition and turned into the avatar of a cheetah god.There’s no sign of exactly how much of Cheetah’s comic history will be included in the movie, nor is there an actor cast to play her. Warner Bros. reportedly approached Emma Stone to play the role, but she turned them down. The studio’s search continues, but Gal Gadot, Ewen Bremmer and Chris Pine are all set to return. The movie is said to take place in the 1980s during the Cold War, so how Pine’s Steve Trevor is still around is one of the big questions surrounding the movie. We’ll have the answers soon enough, though. Since Wonder Woman is its biggest success, Warner Bros. is eager to get a sequel in the works quickly. Filming is set to begin this year in late May.HENRY CAVILL as Superman (via Warner Bros.)Wonder Woman isn’t the only character in the DCEU whose future is looking bright. According to rumors reported by Revenge of the Fans, Cavill wants to do a proper sequel to Man of Steel and make it the start of a new multi-film deal with Warner Bros. From the sounds of things, everyone is pretty much on the same page. Warner Bros. wants to make another Superman movie with Cavill. Cavill wants to be in another Superman movie. And he’d like to be in more DC movies after that. From here, it’s all a matter of scheduling and contractual maneuvering. Cavill has one more DCEU appearance written into his current contract, and he wants that to be a cameo in Shazam!, with Man of Steel 2 being the beginning of a new contract. It’s very likely that Warner Bros. may end up agreeing to some version of that deal if it means keeping Cavill around longer.I’ve had some problems with this version of Superman, but none of them are Cavill’s fault. In his three movies so far, he’s shown himself to be a heroic Superman and a convincing Kansas boy Clark Kent. It’s mostly been the over-dark deconstructionist take on the character that’s held Cavill’s movies back. Superman and Batman need to be fundamentally different for the two to work together in a movie, whether they’re fighting each other or teaming up. Superman is hopeful and optimistic and inspiring. Batman is brooding and paranoid and lives in the shadows. You can’t have both be dark and depressed, or else you end up with… well, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.The good news is that Justice League, for all its other issues, did show a willingness to bring Superman more in line with the hero we recognize from the comics. They want to make him the shining beacon of hope and justice he’s always been. Justice League got the ball rolling and Man of Steel 2 will be their opportunity to make good on it. When it happens. The movie still isn’t officially on Warner Bros.’ schedule, but we all know it’s going to happen. It doesn’t even have a director yet, but some promising names have been floated, including Matthew Vaughan and George Miller. If all goes well, we’ll be excited to see Cavill return as the Superman we all know and love. Maybe he’ll even have his own upper lip this time.Of course, we all know Cavill’s mustache wasn’t the only thing awkwardly removed from Justice League. Whole scenes, settings and characters were cut. While it’s unknown whether or not they would have made for a better, more coherent movie, they sure would have given us more cool stuff to look at. Concept art from the movie showed up on Reddit, giving us a look at an Aquaman scene that didn’t make the final cut. It’s a real shame too, because this scene looks beautiful.DC Entertainment (Image via Reddit)It’s a reminder that we never got a good look at Atlantis in Justice League, and after seeing this, we wish we did. This bit of art shows us a peaceful time in the Atlantean vault, with Aquaman standing by the Mother Box. Other Atlantean guards are in attendance. Whatever this scene was meant to be, it’s not hard to imagine a bit of world-building like this would have made Steppenwolf’s fight for the Mother Box in Atlantis more meaningful.Jason Momoa in Justice League. (Photo via Warner Bros.)For now, it looks like we have to wait for James Wan’s standalone Aquaman movie to get a real good shot of Atlantis. And our first look at the movie might not be too far away. The movie is set to come out later this year, which means we should be expecting a trailer very soon. Revenge of the Fans reports that Warner Bros. plans to reveal the first trailer at this year’s Wonder Con.After Justice League, Warner Bros. definitely seems to be slowing down their DCEU plans a little bit. Aquaman is the only DC movie coming out in 2018. It’s sounding like that’ll be a good thing. Reports from early screenings have all been positive. This could be the movie that brings the DCEU back to its post-Wonder Woman level of excitement. Wonder Con hasn’t released its programming schedule yet, so we don’t know when the Warner Bros. panel will be. All we can say for sure is to look out for an Aquaman trailer sometime between March 23 and 25. So we have less than a month until we see the first trailer for Aquaman. Then, we just have to wait until December to see the actual movie. That sounds easy enough, right?Ezra Miller (Photo via Warner Bros.)Sadly, not everything in the DCEU is so certain, even with one of its more promising elements. As much of a mess as Justice League was, one of its best surprises was Ezra Miller’s Flash. He had a nice hero’s origin arc, and his version of Barry Allen was almost as charming as Grant Gustin’s. Almost. After that performance, many fans are looking forward to his standalone Flashpoint movie. Well, that movie’s future isn’t sounding as certain as we’d hope.Flashpoint’s development has been the definition of turmoil. With rumors of actors departing, and confirmed reports of multiple directors cycling in and out, we’re starting to wonder when we’ll ever hear of real, definite advancement on the movie. The answer: not today. Spider-Man: Homecoming directors John Franis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are planned to be hired to direct Flashpoint. At a recent premiere of their new movie Game Night, they revealed that even that hasn’t been settled yet.“We’re still negotiating. Deals are in the works right now,” Daley said, according to CinemaBlend. So at this time, Flashpoint still may not have a director. That’s not a great place for a movie to be. From the sounds of things though, this isn’t necessarily bad news. It’s just not all that good either. All it means is that contract negotiations are proceeding very slowly. It’s possible that both sides of the deal want to get the movie started, but coming to an agreement is taking time. Still, fans are pretty hot on Miller’s Flash after Justice League. Now is the time to get his standalone movie started. Ironic that a movie about the fastest man alive is proceeding so slowly. We can only hope a good Flash movie comes out of all this. Whenever it comes out.
