Les élèves et le personnel de l’École secondaire de Clare ont été honorés, aujourd’hui 27 mars, puisqu’il s’agit de la première école du Conseil scolaire acadien provincial dont l’amélioration est confirmée. La confirmation de l’amélioration est obtenue après cinq années de travail par l’école visant à établir des normes plus élevées, à améliorer le rendement des élèves et à améliorer le rendement de l’école en général. « L’École secondaire de Clare peut être très fière de cette distinction, » a dit Judy Streatch, ministre de l’Éducation. « Je veux féliciter le personnel, les élèves, le comité d’école consultatif et la communauté scolaire, qui ont déployé tellement d’efforts envers une stratégie d’amélioration de l’école en vue de rendre une bonne école encore meilleure. » Cette école a été l’une des premières à être choisies en 2003 afin de mettre à l’essai le Programme de confirmation de l’amélioration des écoles de la Nouvelle-Écosse, un processus d’amélioration des écoles identifié comme une priorité dans le plan d’éducation pluriannuel de la province intitulé « Vie et apprentissage II ». Presque toutes les 433 écoles de la province travaillent actuellement à l’élaboration de plans d’amélioration de l’école. « Le Programme de confirmation de l’amélioration des écoles de la Nouvelle-Écosse assure l’amélioration continue des écoles et la satisfaction des besoins des élèves en matière d’éducation, » a dit Mme Streatch. L’École secondaire de Clare, une école accueillant les élèves de la 8e à la 12e année, a concentré ses efforts sur l’amélioration du rendement général des élèves en mathématiques et en sciences. Elle a également établi un objectif visant à s’assurer qu’un plus grand nombre d’élèves francophones de la 12e année possèdent les compétences linguistiques en français requises pour l’admission à une université francophone telle que l’Université Sainte-Anne. « Le processus de confirmation de l’amélioration nous a permis d’examiner attentivement ce que nous faisons, notre rendement, et surtout, les possibilités d’amélioration, » a dit le directeur Phillip LeBlanc. Le Programme de confirmation de l’amélioration des écoles de la Nouvelle-Écosse exige que chaque école réponde à une norme d’excellence basée sur des objectifs spécifiques et stratégiques, mesurables, réalisables, axés sur les résultats et opportuns. Dans le cadre du programme, les écoles forment des équipes d’examen interne qui sont responsables de recueillir et d’évaluer les données identifiant les forces et les domaines où une amélioration est nécessaire. Les écoles élaborent ensuite des objectifs et travaillent en vue d’atteindre ces objectifs par l’entremise d’un plan quinquennal d’amélioration de l’école. Le plan est examiné par une équipe d’examen externe formée d’éducateurs et d’administrateurs indépendants qui visitent chaque école avant de donner leur approbation. Les écoles mettent en œuvre le plan d’amélioration et fournissent des mises à jour annuelles aux comités d’école consultatifs. Une équipe de confirmation de l’amélioration retourne à l’école après quatre ans pour évaluer les progrès. Les écoles reçoivent la confirmation de l’amélioration après avoir effectué des progrès dans l’atteinte des objectifs du plan d’amélioration.

TORONTO — Ontario’s top court has ordered a new trial for a young man convicted of first-degree murder in a highway crash that claimed the life of an Ontario police officer.The man, who was 15 at the time of the incident in 2011 and therefore cannot be named, was rendered quadriplegic in the crash that killed Const. Garrett Styles.He was sentenced in 2015 to a conditional supervision order for nine years, after the trial judge found he was already effectively serving a life sentence as a result of his physical state and that he had been rehabilitated.The man appealed his conviction, alleging the trial judge made several legal errors and that the first-degree murder verdict was unreasonable.In a ruling released today, the appeal court found the trial judge erred in failing to caution jurors that they should consider the accused’s age and level of maturity at the time of the incident in determining whether he knew his actions were likely to cause Styles’ death.The appellant had taken his parents’ van late at night in June 2011 to go driving with friends — despite having no licence — when Styles pulled them over in East Gwillimbury, Ont.Court heard Styles sought to impound the van and repeatedly asked the teen driver to step out of the vehicle, eventually reaching inside to unbuckle his seatbelt.The van then suddenly accelerated and dragged the officer about 300 metres before veering off the road and landing on top of him.At the heart of the trial was whether the 15-year-old meant to drive away, as the Crown alleged, or did so accidentally while in a state of panic, as the defence argued.The Canadian Press
___Stocks end rocky month lower as Trump widens trade warNEW YORK (AP) — Stocks closed out a turbulent month on Wall Street with another round of sharp losses Friday after President Trump announced plans to expand a trade war to Mexico. The move shocked investors who already worried that a global trade war could crimp economic and corporate growth. The broad sell-off sliced more than 350 points from the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Friday’s selling punctuated a monthlong slide for the market, which ended May with its first monthly loss of 2019.___Mexico pushes dialogue on Trump tariff threatsMEXICO CITY (AP) — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says Mexico won’t panic over U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat of coercive tariffs. Economists say the measures could have dramatic consequences for both nations and potentially spur a full-blown trade war. Trump set a June 10 deadline for Mexico to do more to slow immigration through its territory or else all of its exports stand to be hit with 5% duties. And he threatened to possibly increase the tariffs incrementally, up to 25%.___US companies are in line of fire of tariffs aimed at MexicoNEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump’s surprise threat Friday to impose escalating tariffs on Mexican imports jolted industry leaders throughout the U.S. economy, sparked sharp opposition even from usual Trump allies and set the stage for American consumers to face higher prices. Trump vowed to slap a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports on June 10, just over a week away, and raise those tariffs to 25% by October, unless Mexico stops the flow of Central American migrants into the U.S.___Huawei retaliation? China draws up list of ‘unreliables’BEIJING (AP) — China is issuing an ominous but vague warning, saying it is drawing up a list of “unreliable” parties in what could signal retaliation for U.S. sanctions on Huawei. The Chinese tech giant has been further hobbled by restrictions on participating in global technology standards-setting groups.___China factory activity falls contracts in May amid disputeBEIJING (AP) — China’s factory activity fell into contraction territory in May amid an ongoing trade dispute with the U.S. that has seen higher tariffs slapped on Chinese exports. The National Bureau of Statistics and an industry group, the China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing, said Friday that the composite purchasing managers’ index of China dropped to 49.4 in May, down from 50.1 in April. Any reading below 50 shows that manufacturing activity is contracting.___Renault board to vote next week on merger with Fiat ChryslerPARIS (AP) — French automaker Renault says its board will meet on Tuesday to vote on a possible merger with Fiat Chrysler. Fiat Chrysler has proposed to merge with Renault to create the world’s third-biggest automaker, worth almost $40 billion, and combine forces in the race to make electric and autonomous vehicles.___Trump to award Medal of Freedom to conservative economistWASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is set to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to economist Arthur Laffer. Laffer is known as the father of supply side economics, which gained popularity under President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. The 78-year-old Laffer has been supportive of the president and co-wrote a book titled “Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy.” The medal is the nation’s highest civilian honour.___Oregon, awash in marijuana, takes steps to curb productionSALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon lawmakers are trying to curb pot production by giving the Oregon Liquor Control Commission more leeway to deny new pot-growing licenses based on supply and demand. The bill flew through the House late Thursday on a 39-18 vote and was passed by the Senate earlier. It is aimed not just at reducing the huge surplus but at preventing diversion of unsold legal marijuana into the black market and forestalling a crackdown by federal prosecutors.___Year-round sales of gasoline mixed with 15% ethanol OK’dOMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Trump administration is following through on a plan to allow year-round sales of gasoline mixed with 15% ethanol. The Environmental Protection Agency announced the change Friday, ending a summertime ban imposed out of concerns for increased smog from the higher ethanol blend. The change also fulfills a pledge that President Donald Trump made to U.S. corn farmers to allow the higher ethanol sales year-round.___Union warns Disney World fire department is understaffedLAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.

The Government is to introduce the much talked about Rs 25,000 fine for some road rule violations, the National Council for Road Safety, which operates under the Ministry of Transport saidChairman of the National Council for Road Safety, Sisira Kodagoda said that the Rs. 25,000 fine will apply for drunk driving, vehicles without insurance, no driving licence and underage drivers. Secretary to the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation, Nihal Somaweera presented the report to the President.The budget proposal – 2017 suggested the minimum fine for violating road rules to increase to Rs. 25,000, with the objective of preventing road accidents. Due to the opposition by people against this, the President appointed a committee to look into the matter. (Colombo Gazette)Report by Indika Sri Aravinda Last week, the final report on the fairness of increasing of the amount of fines for violation of road rules, formulated by a committee appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena, was handed over to the President at the Presidential Secretariat.

“I leave the Central African Republic calm and reasonably optimistic,” said Hervé Ladsous, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations during a press conference in the capital, Bangui, today at the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA).“Protection of civilians is improving continuously because we have developed targeted actions and coordinated protection,” he added.Reaching full operational capability with the deployment of additional capabilities authorized by the Security Council after the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office in the country (BINUCA) was subsumed by MINUSCA, the Mission, set up in September 2014, has developed an emergency operational plan to support national authorities in ensuring the holding of elections in a secure and timely manner before August this year.Six months after the military and police components of MINUSCA began their work and on the day the Mission’s mandate was renewed by the Security Council in New York, Mr. Ladsous recalled that it was a time to measure the achievements of the Mission and he welcomed the work done by the Mission so far.Reiterating the determination of the Mission to meet the challenge that is still posed in the security realm, he looked forward to improvements, saying that the arrival of attack helicopters and drones would help. He added that he hoped the political transition would be significantly boosted by the Bangui Forum. “This momentous event will launch major reforms to the Central African people and will allow the Transition to give way to a democratically elected regime,” he said. “The Bangui Forum, followed by inclusive and credible elections, will be a key element in the successful conclusion of the transition,” he said, referring to the national gathering that will take place on 4 May.He also pointed to the international community’s mobilization to deal with the crisis, saying it “reflects a unity of purpose to tackle the country’s long-standing crisis and treat the root causes of the conflict.”
Margaret Lizzotti, aquatics assistant program supervisor, and the team at the Eleanor Misener Aquatic Centre, were recently recognized by the Lifesaving Society for the lifeguard and first aid training that the centre provides. Margaret Lizzotti longs for the day when drowning deaths become a thing of the past.As Brock’s aquatics assistant program supervisor, Lizzotti is doing her part to achieve that by running one of the largest Lifesaving Society training programs in Ontario.Every year, the team at the Eleanor Misener Aquatic Centre turn out thousands of people ready to patrol pools and administer CPR thanks to skills they learn through the lifesaving, lifeguarding and first aid training programs offered at Brock.And once again, the centre has been recognized for its efforts to make the world a safer place with two awards from the Lifesaving Society.Last month, Brock received the Arnold H. Morphy Cup, awarded to the affiliated single facility with the largest lifesaving program in Ontario, and the Kirk A. W. Wipper Cup, given to an affiliated university or college with the largest lifesaving program in the province.This is the 18th year in a row that Brock has won the Wipper Cup.“We are very proud of this award,” Lizzotti said. “However, in the aquatic world, the awards are not what we strive for. What’s most important is teaching, getting that message across about how to be safe when people are near or in water.”“It’s really the passion we have here as a collective group,” she added. “I’m so very proud of our staff, and leadership instructors and examiners in the region because they are on the front lines, teaching kids to swim, how to be lifesavers and lifeguards.”Brock was thousands of points ahead of its closest competitor for the awards, the University of Waterloo. Points are given based on the level of training a person receives from those administering Lifesaving Society programs.In both categories that Brock clinched, there were about 10,000 points dividing the University and U of W.Though the Lifesaving Society gives the awards based on numbers alone, Lizzotti said they recognize something far greater.“We strive to educate all ages in drowning prevention education,” she said. “With drowning statistics that we have witnessed in the past few years, learning how to swim is a life skill.”
The CPS needs to show continuously that it adds value to the criminal justice processChief Inspector Kevin McGinty Police and prosecution lawyers are failing to correctly disclose evidence in nearly half of court cases, watchdog review has found.Inspectors identified a number of shortcomings in a sample of hundreds of criminal cases over two years in England.The report from Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) said police fully complied with their disclosure obligations in relation to unused material in 734 out of a snapshot of 1,290 cases, or 56.9%, with partial compliance in a further 36.7%.Poor descriptions of items on unused material schedules were the main cause of marking down nearly half (41.9%) of the 556 cases that did not fully meet the standard expected.In other instances, items were listed wrongly or witnesses’ previous convictions were not dealt with properly.The review came after police have been accused of not carrying out basic procedures in a string of high-profile cases, which subsequently collapsed.Failures to uncover key evidence that exonerated or supported the case of defendants has lead to the collapse of four rape trials in recent months.It also comes after a former special adviser to Sir Michael Fallon accused the police of a “cruel public shamming” after he was acquitted of sexual assault in May. Richard Holden arriving at Southwark Crown Court, where he was found not guilty of sexual assaultCredit:Gustavo Valiente /i-Images A CPS spokesman said: “It is encouraging this report showed strong leadership across the CPS.”Tackling the issues around casework and disclosure are a top priority.”We are working with the police and partners across the criminal justice system to bring lasting improvements to the way we handle disclosure and a number of measures are already in place.”By September our prosecutors will have completed mandatory disclosure training; local and national improvement plans are in place and we will continue to monitor progress closely.” Richard Holden, 33, accused the police of “delayed and incomplete” disclosure in the case. A jury took just an hour to find him not guilty. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. The inspectorate said it saw “limited evidence” of prosecutors identifying police lack of compliance in reviews or other notes on files, or of them feeding that back to the police.Prosecutors’ compliance on initial disclosure was “not much better than that of the police”, with 557 out of 954 cases (58.4%) fully meeting requirements.Continuing disclosure was better handled, with 64.8% of applicable cases fully meeting the expected standard.Of 429 cases that failed at the initial and or continuing stages, eight featured a failure throughout the life of the proceedings to disclose material that undermined the prosecution case or assisted the defence, the report said.No miscarriages of justice were detected as a result of the eight “complete” failures.Inspectors said that although the number of cases looked at, as a percentage of the total number of cases conducted by the CPS nationally, was small, they are representative of the picture in the regional areas examined for the report.Confidence in the criminal justice system was rocked last year after a flurry of cases collapsed. In the lead-up to trials, police and prosecutors are required to hand over relevant material that either undermines the prosecution case or assists the defence.The regime came under sharp focus after defendants facing rape allegations had the charges against them dropped when critical material emerged at the last minute. The revelations prompted a review of every live rape and serious sexual assault prosecution in England and Wales, which found issues with the disclosure of unused material in 47 cases.Elsewhere, HMCPSI said that while leadership was found to be strong nationally there was cause for concern about casework handling.Between first appearance and trial, in many cases the CPS did not manage progress effectively and too much work was left until a late stage, the assessment found.Chief Inspector Kevin McGinty said: “The CPS needs to show continuously that it adds value to the criminal justice process.”This is about getting the right cases before the courts, ensuring that disclosure has been dealt with appropriately and progressing cases efficiently to ensure cases are trial ready at the earliest opportunity.”It is encouraging that leadership, staff engagement and public engagement were found to be strengths of the CPS. But the CPS needs to improve on the timely review of casework if it is to reduce delays and inefficiencies in the trial process.”

Posted: August 3, 2018 Man found guilty of felony assault for punching police officer in Chicano Park Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, August 3, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A man who punched a San Diego police officer in the face after the officer and his partner ordered him to stop walking in the middle of the street near a rally at Chicano Park was convicted Friday of assault and other charges.Jurors found 39-year-old Frederick Jefferson of San Diego guilty of felony assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, resisting an executive officer and a misdemeanor count of resisting an officer after one day of deliberations. The defendant faces about nine years in state prison when he is sentenced Aug. 31, said Deputy District Attorney Michael Reilly.Reilly told the jury that Jefferson “wanted to play by his own rules” when Officers Matthew Ruggiero and Justin Tennebaum tried to get him to walk on the sidewalk on Logan Avenue the morning of Feb. 3, close to where two rival groups were rallying in the park.The prosecutor said the officers had every right to stop and enforce traffic laws against jaywalking and to use force when Jefferson reacted violently to their requests to move onto the sidewalk.“Get out of the street,” one of the officers said to Jefferson. “C’mon dude, stop! You’re gonna get a ticket, or go to jail!”The prosecutor said Jefferson reacted suddenly and violently when the officers got out of their patrol car and tried to grab the defendant’s arms and move him out of the street.“Don’t you put your hands on me,” Jefferson is heard saying on one of the officer’s body-worn cameras.Reilly said Ruggiero pulled out his police baton but didn’t use it on Jefferson until the defendant started swinging at him.Ruggiero was hit in the face two or three times and suffered a fractured nose and cheek bone.Jefferson struggled with at least five other officers before being taken to the ground and handcuffed.The defendant testified that he was minding his own business, walking toward what he thought was a parade, when the officers grabbed his arms. Jefferson told the jury he acted in self-defense.

Bangladesh prime minister Sheikh Hasina addresses the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly at UN headquarters in New York, US, on 27 September 2018. Photo: ReutersPrime minister Sheikh Hasina has demanded immediate and effective implementation of the agreement signed between Myanmar and the UN on the solution of the ongoing Rohingya crisis.She made the call as the crisis has been putting immense socioeconomic pressure on Bangladesh as some 1.10 million Rohingya have taken shelter in the country.“We also wish to see immediate and effective implementation of the agreement concluded between Myanmar and the UN,” she said while delivering her speech, delivered in Bangla, in the 73rd UN General Assembly on Thursday, reports UNB.Mentioning that the Rohingya crisis has its origin in Myanmar, Hasina said its solution also needs to be found there. “We want an early, peaceful solution to the Rohingya crisis.”The prime minister said Bangladesh was appalled by what it has seen in UN reports about atrocities against the Rohingyas who have now taken shelter in Bangladesh, which are tantamount to genocide and crimes against humanity.“We expect the international community, particularly the UN, to give due importance to the atrocities and injustice suffered by the Rohingya population in Myanmar,” she said.The premier said as a ‘fellow human’, Bangladesh can neither ignore nor remain silent about the plight of the Rohingya.“I, therefore, presented a five-point proposal at the UN General Assembly last year with a view to finding a durable and peaceful solution to the sufferings of the forcibly displaced and hapless Rohingya. We’re disappointed that despite our earnest efforts, we haven’t been able to begin Rohingya repatriation in a permanent and sustainable manner,” she said.Mentioning that Myanmar is one of Bangladesh’s neighbours, she said from the outset, it has been trying to find a peaceful solution to the Rohingya crisis through bilateral consultations. “So far, three bilateral arrangements have been concluded between Bangladesh and Myanmar for Rohingya repatriation,” she said, adding that despite their verbal commitment to take back the Rohingya, in reality, the Myanmar authorities are yet to accept them back.Hasina said the 1.10 million Rohingyas living in Bangladesh in an uncertain situation. To the best of its ability, Bangladesh has made arrangements for their food, clothing, healthcare, child-care and security, she said.She said many countries and organisations, including the UN, the Commonwealth, and the OIC, have shown solidarity with the Rohingyas and extended support and assistance for them.The prime minister said Bangladesh has started working on a new housing facility with all arrangements for their education, healthcare and other needs so that they are able to live in a good and healthy condition.She called upon international organisations to join hands with Bangladesh in this initiative.Mentioning that she could feel the pain and sufferings of countless people around the world, persecuted and expelled from their homes like the Rohingyas, Sheikh Hasina said it is impossible to build peaceful, just and sustainable societies by ignoring such situations.She said the Myanmar situation repeatedly reminds her of the genocide committed by the Pakistan occupation forces against Bangalees in 1971.Describing Bangladesh as a major contributor to world peace, the prime minister said it expects to see a more robust and human rights centric Global Compact on Safe, Regular and Orderly Migration.Talking about terrorism, she said Bangladesh stands firm against terrorism and all organised crimes. “We shall not allow our territory to be used for any terrorist acts against or any activity detrimental to the interest of our neighbours. Our ‘zero tolerance’ policy in countering terrorism will continue undiminished,” she said.She mentioned that Bangladesh’s ‘whole of society’ approach has served well in preventing violent extremism, human trafficking and flow of illicit drugs.Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh has commenced its journey from being an LDC (least developed country) to the status of a developing one.In the backdrop of Bangladesh’s current economic growth, she said, there are now immense and large-scale business opportunities in Bangladesh.Foreign investors are being offered various financial incentives like tax holiday, avoidance of double taxation and exemption of duties, she said. “We’re setting up 100 Special Economic Zones that would help create 10 million job opportunities in Bangladesh,” she added.Terming Bangladesh as one of the 10 countries which are most vulnerable to climate change, Sheikh Hasina said its topography coupled with high density of population has made the country particularly exposed to climate change risks.She said Bangladesh remains committed to implementing the Paris Agreement and is spending over 1 per cent of its GDP in addressing climate change impacts.“We’re also promoting climate-resilient agriculture. Initiatives have been taken to increase tree coverage from 22 per cent to 24 per cent in the next five years,” she said.The prime minister said Bangladesh has integrated its development programmes and its efforts to build capacity for combating climate change into a mega project titled Delta Plan 2100. “Bangladesh is the only country in the world that has adopted such a long-term development plan spanning 82 years,” she added.She said Bangladesh was shocked by the continued violation of the rights of the brotherly people of Palestine. “This must come to an end. As the Chair of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers, we shall continue to work with the international community for resolution of the Palestine question.”Sheikh Hasina said there are three elements that play the most critical part in advancing human civilisation—peace, humanity and development. “For the well-being of human societies, we must continue to strive for humanity. Our main objective must be to serve people and ensure their well-being. It is humanity and goodwill that would take us forward on the pathway to sustainable development.”Noting that Bangladesh once was known to the world as the land plagued by disasters, floods, droughts and hunger, she said it has done wonders in maintaining international peace, managing disasters, empowering women and consolidating development gains. “Bangladesh has now surpassed its neighbours in South Asia on a number of indicators.”“But, our journey has not reached its end. Our journey will continue till the day we can build a Bangladesh free of hunger, poverty, illiteracy and exploitation – the Sonar Bangladesh as dreamt by our father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,” she said.
James Gunn Once Again Directing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’Dark Phoenix Trailer Released & More Marvel Movie News The Marvel Cinematic Universe, like the comics its based on, is pretty weird. What started as a semi-grounded superhero story about a rich man building himself a rocket suit turned into a galaxy-sprawling sci-fi franchise with a talking raccoon and a guy who wipes out half the universe with a snap. Even these movies have not yet begun to plumb the depths of weirdness Marvel is truly capable of. For now. Sony Pictures released a trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on Wednesday that begins to dive into all the multi-verse stuff Marvel Comics likes to play with. So far to great effect.Oh holy crap, it looks so good. Damn, maybe it’s a good thing Disney didn’t get the full rights to Spider-Man back from Sony. I enjoyed Spider-Man: Homecoming more than some around here, but this looks so much better than that. It’s basically everything I’ve ever wanted out of a Spider-Man movie. The action is fluid and fast. I could watch this Spider-Man zip around New York forever. It also looks like it has plenty of humor throughout. I especially love Miles’ relationship with his dad. And that art style. 3D computer animation painted like 2D makes it look like a comic panel came to life. This is going to look absolutely gorgeous on the big screen.In addition to the awesome trailer, Sony also announced the full voice cast of the movie, and there are some great actors in this thing. We already knew Shameik Moore would play Miles Morales/Spider-Man, but now we know Jake Johnson will play Peter Parker, who acts as Miles’ mentor in this movie. That’s super exciting to me, as I really loved the arc in the comics where Peter went into parent mode teaching Miles how to Spider-Man (“Did you finish your homework? Did you eat a snack?”). Also joining the cast is Liev Schreiber will play the Kingpin, meaning he’ll finally be in a good comic book movie. Mahershala Ali plays Miles’ uncle Aaron, and you almost couldn’t ask for a better actor to be in your movie.Just as exciting though, Hailee Steinfeld is playing Spider-Gwen. That’s how deep into the Marvel canon this one is going. Not that Spider-Gwen is super obscure or anything, but that’s further into the Marvel multiverse than the MCU is willing to go at this point. Steinfeld is also a pretty big get. She’s starring in the upcoming Bumblebee Transformers spinoff. As good as that movie looks (really), she’s probably about to become a huge star. Also, Lily Tomlin plays Aunt May. Yes. Yes. A million times yes. Can this just come out now?Spider-Man: Into the Multiverse arrives theaters later this year on December 14.That movie, however does not take place in the MCU. But that doesn’t mean Miles doesn’t exist in the MCU. In fact, Spider-Man: Homecoming went out if its way to include Miles’ uncle in the movie. He’s there, and many fans, us in particular, really hope he makes an official debut before too long. One artist imagined what that might look like. Stephen Byrne posted a couple of fan comics to Twitter detailing exactly what happened to the rest of the Marvel universe after Thanos murdered half of it. Most of it’s really sad, but this one, part two if Byrne’s “After the Snap” series, ends on a hopeful note. After the Snap 2. SPOILERS. pic.twitter.com/ATfWJjDQzm— Stephen Byrne (@StephenByrne86) June 3, 2018God the image of Aunt May watching the news, knowing the worst has happened as Peter failed to come home. I don’t know what’s sadder, her or Ned staring at an empty lunch chair without his best friend. And then there’s Miles. Forced into action after watching his uncle disintegrate right in front of him. Nothing creates a superhero faster than trauma. These comics are so well done, I wish they were canon. You couldn’t ask for a better MCU origin for Miles’ Spider-Man. If he does ever join the MCU, this probably won’t be how. We can dream, though.There is some possibly big Avengers 4 news out today, though. A graphic purporting to be some leaked concept art from the film has surfaced, and if it’s legit, it could hint at some major plot points from the upcoming movie. It comes from ScreenRant, which has not confirmed whether it’s real or not, so you know, grain of salt and all that. If it is real though, the movie is already shaping up to be really cool.Via ScreenRant, Hero XIf that isn’t actual concept art from Avengers 4, it’s a real good fake. If we assume it is though, it gives us some fascinating insight into the plot of the next movie. Let’s take a look at who’s there. All the surviving Avengers are charging into battle, presumably against Thanos. That means this happens before they bring back everyone the Mad Titan erased. (Which, let’s be honest, they will. Most of the disappeared heroes have sequels to make.) Ant-Man and Captain Marvel are there, but we knew they would be. Hawkeye is in the picture, which is what’s really making me hope this is real. Where was he in Infinity War? Did it really take half the universe dusting out of existence for him to come out of family-induced retirement?Most fascinating though, is Hulk. Not only is he wearing clothes, he looks oddly different. If this art is indeed real, that could be a new form of the Hulk. Infinity War certainly hinted at a transformation of some kind. As Banner tried to get angry to force the green guy into a fight, all that happened was a loud “no.” It’s possible the movie was setting up Professor Hulk, a kind of merging of Banner and Hulk’s personalities in the comics. That certainly seemed to be how the Hulk would have preferred things in the last movie. Plus, it explains the sudden ability to wear clothes. Unless those are just an excuse for Marvel to continue not having to animate the giant green dong only hinted at in Thor: Ragnarok. Show us the Hulk Hog, Marvel!Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth in Thor (Photo via Marvel)Finally, a fan theory started making the rounds on the internet that sounds pretty plausible. One of the early signs that the MCU would eventually build up to something like Infinity War was the presence of the Infinity Gauntlet in Odin’s hall in the first Thor. Then, in Thor: The Dark World, it was revealed that the Tesseract and the Aether were both Infinity Stones. Much later, in Thor: Ragnarok, we learned that the Infinity Gauntlet in the hall was a fake. So why did Odin have a fake Infinity Gauntlet? And how did he know so much of the Reality Stone? Redditor DraftDraw posted a very convincing theory.Odin, the theory goes, originally had similar goals in mind to Thanos. We know he used to be a bloodthirsty conquerer before something turned him into the kindly ruler we meet in Thor. Odin used to crave power, and what better way to get it than to collect all six Infinity Stones. According to the theory, Odin learned about the stones from his father, and when he became king, he set out with Hela to collect all six. He’s the one that commissioned Nidavellir to make a control for the stones, the Infinity Gauntlet. While the real one was being made, Nidavellir made a prototype, which is the “fake” on display in Odin’s hall.What stopped him from collecting all the stones and becoming even more of a god? The Soul Stone. Acquiring it requires sacrificing someone you love. And unlike Thanos, Odin couldn’t pay that price. Realizing the true cost of absolute power caused Odin to rethink everything. He became a peaceful king, fought with Hela and banished her to Hell. The theory states he may have used the Space Stone to do it, thereby violating the natural order by sending a living being to Hell, and ensuring Asgard’s destruction in Ragnarok. I love fan theories like this, where all the little pieces fit together. It makes a ton of sense, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was at least 90 percent right. Now I just want to see how well it all lines up. Man, I just finished my MCU marathon before Infinity War came out. Now I have to start it all over again.

Kolkata: West Bengal Governor K N Tripathi has convened a meeting of major political parties on Thursday in view of the ongoing post-poll violence in the state, sources in the Raj Bhavan said. Tripathi has sent a letter to all prominent political parties in Bengal, urging them to attend the all-party meet at 4 pm at Raj Bhavan, they said. Welcoming the move, West Bengal BJP unit president Dilip Ghosh said the state government should have taken the initiative. “We welcome the decision. We have received Tripathi’s letter. We would be attending tomorrow’s meeting,” he told PTI. The Trinamool Congress leadership, however, said it was yet to receive any letter. “Once we receive the letter, we would take a call on it,” said a senior TMC leader.
“We are dedicated to the business of mobility so all projects, like this one interest us. We are attentive to the progress of it,” he noted. He explained that they are following up on the project that has been proposed by the federal government and extended to them, an interest to operate, this being something that is within the business plan. The Maya Train project includes Yucatan, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Chiapas and Tabasco with a total of 15 stations.

Garcia Flores also said that ADO is interested in the proposed light rail system for Cancun and will continue to monitor the progress of that project, which if developed, would leave the Cancun International Airport. He said that ADO has seen a climb in traveler figures, with an increase in December of four percent. ADO regional manager, Julio Garcia Flores, says the company has analyzed the project and has it within its plans to operate the train system once the Quintana Roo section is in operation. He says ADO has been monitoring its progress and are waiting for the operation tenders to be sent out adding that they are in the business of mobility.

Bloomberg’s sources say that Apple will launch a few shows initially in November, while rolling out additional programs in subsequent months.Apple first revealed its Apple TV+ plans at a March press event where it also launched Apple News+, previewed the Apple Arcade streaming service and debuted its credit card, which is now rolling out to users. It’s all part of Apple’s attempt to boost service revenue while iPhone sales have slowed down.Apple TV+ Shows: What We Know So FarApple Is No Longer the iPhone CompanyApple TV+: Why Netflix Should (And Shouldn’t) Be Scared We already know a lot of the shows Apple plans to offer when it throws the switch on its Apple TV+ subscription service later this year. And thanks to a new report, we have a better sense of what it’s going to cost to bring the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Jason Momoa, Snoopy and Steven Spielberg to our iPhones and Macs.Bloomberg today (Aug. 19) reported that Apple is likely to charge $9.99 a month for Apple TV+ when it launches the service in November. Both that price and the November launch date come from sources familiar with Apple’s plans, according to Bloomberg.If that $9.99 price sounds familiar, it’s what Apple already charges for a month of its streaming music service as well as for the premium news service it launched earlier this year. There’s no word in Bloomberg’s report as to whether Apple is planning to bundle those different subscription services into one package for a discounted price.A $9.99 monthly subscription to Apple TV+ would put Apple in the middle of what competitors charge for their streaming video services. A standard Netflix subscription, for example, costs $12.99, but if you don’t need HD streaming and only need to access programs on one screen at a time, you can opt for Netflix’s $8.99 basic subscription. Hulu’s streaming service costs $5.99 a month, but that prices increases to $11.99 if you want to stream without ads. As for the soon-to-launch Disney+ service, it’s going to cost $6.99, though Disney is also talking about a $13 monthly bundle that includes Hulu and ESPN+ along with Disney’s new streaming service.RECOMMENDED VIDEOS FOR YOU…logoCreated with Sketch.

These societies have expanded their pediatric radiation protection initiative by standardizing doses (based on body weight) for 11 nuclear medicine procedures commonly performed in children. The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging has collaborated in this effort and will support efforts to promote the new, lower radiopharmaceutical doses. “Children may be more sensitive to radiation from medical imaging scans than adults. A radiopharmaceutical dose which is too low may risk poor diagnostic image quality. Doses too high may expose the child to unnecessary radiation exposure without benefit,” said S. Ted Treves, M.D., strategy leader of the Image Gently Nuclear Medicine Initiative, chief of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging at Children’s Hospital Boston and Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. Treves; Michael J. Gelfand, M.D.; and Marguerite T. Parisi, M.D., MS, are co-chairs of the workgroup of 20 pediatric nuclear medicine professionals that worked together to reach these consensus guidelines.“It is important that we standardize dose to help ensure that all pediatric nuclear medicine professionals consistently optimize medical images while only using the minimum amount of radiation necessary to obtain these images,” Treves said. “These latest SNM and Image Gently efforts are a major step forward toward dose reduction in pediatric nuclear medicine.”The new guidelines are available on the SNM (www.snm.org), SPR (www.pedrad.org) and Image Gently (www.imagegently.org) websites.For more information: www.snm.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
