first_imgLos Angeles: Ruben Fleischer, the director of zombie comedy Zombieland, has explained why it took him ten years to make a sequel, saying that he wanted to maintain a “really high standard” of storytelling. The filmmaker is back with the much-awaited sequel Zombieland: Double Tap with the core cast of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin reprising their fan-favourite characters. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Fleischer said he and film’s writing team struggled to crack the “right story” for the sequel.

But, the other thing is, we just couldn’t figure out the right story to tell. It took a minute to get a story that we all felt was worthy, to come back to Zombieland for,” the director said. “We all have so much love for the original. So, we held ourselves to a really high standard as far as making sure that, if we were going to make a sequel, that it be at least as good, if not better, than original. And that ultimately all comes down to the script.last_img read more

first_imgBengaluru: Senior Congress leader and former Karnataka Minister D K Shivakumar said the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued fresh summons, asking him to appear before it in Delhi on Friday. The ED move comes after the Karnataka High Court had on Thursday dismissed Shivakumar’s petition challenging the summons issued to him in a money-laundering case. “Please don’t take tension, I have not taken tension, there is no need to take tension. I have not committed any mistake. I have not committed any rape or taken money, there is nothing against me,” Shivakumar told reporters here on Friday. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder “Have received summons from ED late yesterday night at 9.40 PM asking me to appear at 1 PM in Delhi today. Although the sudden scheduling by ED is malafide, I believe in rule of law and will definitely participate and fully cooperate with them and abide by the law of our country,” he tweeted. Alleging that he was facing a political case for protecting some MLAs, Shivakumar said, “Let it be. I will have to face it for doing good to someone. Yesterday, our application in the high court has been dismissed. I will speak to you on all matters. I’m going to Delhi.” Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings “I have not been able to meet my lawyers. Last night I was issued summons, they have asked me to appear by 1 (PM on Friday) urgently in Delhi. I have to meet my lawyers and have family commitments, after that I will go to Delhi,” he added. The ED had in September last year registered a money-laundering case against Shivakumar and few others on the basis of an alleged tax evasion and hawala transactions case. The agency had booked Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, an employee at Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, and others under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The case has been filed based on a charge sheet (prosecution complaint) filed by the Income Tax Department against him early last year before a special court in Bengaluru on charges of alleged tax evasion and hawala transactions worth crores. “IT raid on me was politically motivated for hosting Gujarat Congress MLAs. As a loyal soldier of Congress & a responsible politician, I did what party asked me to do, for which I am being targeted.

With the situation in the Middle East at its worst in decades, the international community must press for reaching a final Israeli-Palestinian settlement, while the parties themselves must take steps to stem the violence and establish a clearly defined political horizon for resolving their differences, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said today in a message to a United Nations seminar in Copenhagen. Recalling yesterday’s meeting of the diplomatic Quartet – the United States, European Union, Russian Federation and UN – the Secretary-General again backed statements by US President George Bush calling for a three-year timeframe for a final settlement, according to the text of his message to the International Media Seminar organized by the UN Department of Public Information. Mr. Annan called on both parties to show their commitment to peace. “The Palestinian Authority should take immediate and specific action to prevent terrorist acts against Israel, and its leadership must do more to de-legitimize terrorism among the public,” he said in his message, which was delivered by Shashi Tharoor, the Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information. “Only a democratic Palestinian administration that forswears and actively combats terror will be able to secure just final status arrangements for its people.” The Government of Israel, for its part, “must stop all settlement activity in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem,” he said, calling such activity “a fundamental obstacle to advancing the peace process” which ran contrary to international law. Israel should also withdraw from the areas it has reoccupied, resume revenue transfers, and lift the increasingly severe curfews, internal closures and other restrictions on movement that impose such hardships on Palestinians. He also stressed that the social and economic misery of the Palestinian people was a “serious obstacle” to peace. “The key to stitching these many strands of grievance and hope into a renewed fabric of peace negotiations lies in simultaneously reducing violence and establishing a clearly defined political horizon for resolving the permanent status issues,” he said, warning that if the parties could not agree on the design of that process, “the unremitting violence in the region may well continue.” All had a duty to act, and to strive for a clear understanding of one another’s positions, he stressed. Organized by the UN Department of Public Information in cooperation with Denmark’s Foreign Ministry, the two-day seminar on “Ending confrontation: Building peace in the Middle East” provides a forum for media representatives and international experts to discuss lessons learned since the signing of the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements by Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1993. Participants are reviewing the issues that continue to divide the parties, the role of third parties, especially the UN, in restoring confidence, and how the media can serve as a partner for peace. read more

By now, it’s pretty commonly suspected — and not just by bitter pitchers, either — that MLB’s recent home run surge can be traced back to a supply of zippier-than-usual baseballs. The research of our colleague Rob Arthur and The Ringer’s Ben Lindbergh backs up that theory, regardless of what Commissioner Rob Manfred has to say on the matter.And with apologies to those poor, beleaguered pitchers, we say: Good! Who doesn’t enjoy the old-fashioned fun of watching baseballs be launched into the atmosphere? (Judging from the ratings for last week’s Home Run Derby,1Which aired on ESPN — the company that owns FiveThirtyEight. nobody — that’s who.) As a celebration of the long ball, then, we used data from ESPN’s Home Run Tracker to plot out just how far MLB’s hitters have bashed the ball over the years.(All data in this story was up to date as of the All-Star break. Inside-the-park home runs and homers without distance information have been excluded from the data.)Anyone who watched Aaron Judge’s performance at the Derby could be excused for thinking that baseballs can, in fact, exit the solar system. The true distances that home runs travel are less than interstellar, of course — though still impressive. According to the Home Run Tracker, which has data going back to 2006, major league batters have crushed 56,785 tracked homers over the last 11.5 seasons, adding up to a grand total of 22,599,628 feet — or 4,280 miles.To put that number in perspective, let’s do a little geography experiment. If we started in Cooperstown, New York, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame, and laid the distances of every home run in that span end to end heading east across the Atlantic Ocean as the crow flies, we would reach the border of Mali and Mauritania in northwestern Africa. Head south and the homers reach the northern corner of Chile, near its borders with Peru and Bolivia. Head north, the homers easily clear the pole, with the last one landing somewhere near Russia’s Bolshevik Island. Across the country, Mike Trout has been busy trying to make his team’s “Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim” moniker legit with his home runs. With a little over 14 miles’ worth of bombs to his name, Trout has already homered enough distance along Interstate 5 to land in Los Angeles County — and about halfway to downtown L.A. Only a guy who might end up being baseball’s greatest player could reconcile the most absurd team name in sports back to some semblance of reality. No discussion of Trout would be complete without a comparison to Bryce Harper, his longtime rival. At 24, the Washington Nationals right fielder is the youngest player with at least 10 miles of career home runs, and he’s on pace to add nearly three miles this season alone. He’s already hit enough to reach the D.C. suburb of Bethesda, Maryland, to the north or Mount Vernon to the south; give him enough years, and he might get to Baltimore. (Or — if the rumors are right — Staten Island.) Because of the home run surge, that circle is growing more rapidly than ever. Already this season, hitters have driven the ball 1,337,266 feet, or 253.3 miles. That’s 69 percent of the yearly average distance between 2006 and 2016, and as of the All-Star break, we were only 55 percent of the way through the schedule. At that pace, this season will eventually see 466 miles of home runs be hit; that would easily be the most in any season since 2006, and it would be a 10 percent increase over the previous high of 425 miles, set in 2016.Among players whose entire body of homering work falls within the Home Run Tracker era, the biggest bopper is Seattle Mariners designated hitter Nelson Cruz. Cruz has mashed 297 tracked home runs over a cumulative distance of 121,805 feet, or a hair over 23 miles. String those together, and that’s enough to travel from Safeco Field in downtown Seattle south to Tacoma. At age 37, Cruz is the elder statesman of this era’s long bombers. But it might not be long before he is surpassed by Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins, who’s already hit nearly 18.5 miles’ worth of home runs in just 7.5 seasons of action. Stanton’s average homer has traveled 414 feet — tops among anyone with at least 100 home runs in our data set — helping him rack up enough total distance to reach from Marlins Park to the Everglades or Biscayne National Park. (Sadly, though, even Stanton is unlikely to hit the 90-plus miles of home runs necessary to reach Cuba.) Speaking of New York City, we don’t have a Judge map yet because he’s only hit 34 career home runs (for 2.7 miles — basically the distance from Yankee Stadium to Central Park). We’ll have to wait and see just how far he can mash the ball in the years to come.Likewise, we don’t have data for most of Barry Bonds’s record-breaking career, either. But if we assign each of his 762 career dingers the 2006-17 MLB average of 398 feet (which, given homers like this, might be far too conservative an estimate), Bonds would have ended up with about 57 miles of homers in his career. (That’s roughly the distance between AT&T Park and Santa Cruz, California; it’s also over 10 times the height of Mount Everest.)Cruz, Stanton and company still have many more miles to go before catching up to that lofty total. But the way today’s hitter-friendly baseballs have been flying out of parks, maybe we’ll see somebody get to 60 miles of home runs before too long.Check out our latest MLB predictions. read more

UPDATE (Feb. 25, 4:58 p.m.): Since publication of this post, the Last Man organizers have acknowledged that their database did not include one contestant who was still viable in the competition. She has since been eliminated, but the numbers in this post would be slightly different if the database had been correct at the time of publication. Eighty-five percent of participants have already been felled by what competitors call “The Knowledge,”2Not to be confused with “The Knowledge.” according to the Last Man website. Sixteen percent of all players had, despite their best efforts, learned who won the Super Bowl by midnight on the night of the game (Feb. 7).3I wasn’t a declared player, but I made it only to 9:17 a.m. the day after the game, by which point 27 percent of players had learned the result, too. By the end of the next day, more than half of the competitors had lost their blissful ignorance. The more time that passes, the safer the players are; only about a quarter of competitors who made it through the first post-Super Bowl week perished in the second. Now, as you can see in the chart above, the survivor curve is more like a plateau.But that’s no reason for the survivors to let down their guard. They could still be taken out by the kind of thing that has felled other competitors — phone calls, cupcakes, baby photos, the usual. And it’s not always just the Last Manners who suffer when they lose: One competitor learned the Super Bowl winner via “email from treacherous husband I thought I could trust.” And that husband may find that the guilt of being the spoiler weighs on him for longer than The Knowledge haunts his spouse. It’s been more than two weeks since the Super Bowl, and there are still at least 29 people1As of Sunday, when the data was last updated. who don’t know who won. Those 29 are the recorded survivors of the Last Man challenge, a war-of-attrition, just-for-glory competition to be the last person in the U.S. (or at least in the challenge’s database) unaware of who won Super Bowl 50. (For all of you who still don’t know who won, this post is a safe space.) read more

first_imgA new and efficient method for the removal of uranium and other heavy metals from water has been developed at the University of Eastern Finland. Chemec, a Finnish chemicals industry company, has purchased the rights in the invention and will introduce the method to the commercial markets. Binding metal ions to a solid material, the CH Collector method can be used within the mining industry, and also in the removal of emissions caused by the chemicals and metals processing industries.Chemec’s CH Collector method is a potential solution to issues relating to the dangers and recovery of uranium, which have been a topic of much debate in Finland lately. Uranium is a mildly radioactive and poisonous heavy metal, which is naturally occurring in some parts of the Finnish bedrock. When mining other metals such as gold, uranium may be present as an impurity in mining wastewaters. Complete removal of uranium from solutions is difficult due to the fact that uranium takes different forms depending on the acidity of the solution.  The removal of other heavy metal emissions such as lead, mercury, cadmium and zinc from waters is also challenging.Traditionally, metal ions are removed from solutions with the help of chemical coagulants or ion exchangers, which usually require adjustments to the solution’s pH or significant extra energy in order to function efficiently. Professor Jouko Vepsäläinen’s research group at the UEF School of Pharmacy has developed a new method enabling an efficient removal of metal ions from solutions without the need to use any auxiliary substances. The CH Collector method is based on the use of a solid material which collects metal ions directly from the solution. University researcher Petri Turhanen had a central role in the development of the new method.The solid material developed by the researchers belongs to the aminobisphosphonate family, which are also used in, for example, osteoporosis medications. The invention is unique, as no other metal absorbents working on the same principle are in use. “Ion channels are formed inside the material, in which the metal ions are collected from the solution,” Vepsäläinen explains.The new material collects metal ions directly from the solution. The collection of metals does not require a separate precipitation step or any adjustments to the solution’s pH. For instance, an efficient recovery of uranium is possible from a very wide pH range and even in cases where the solution is rich in other naturally-occurring metal ions such as sodium, magnesium or calcium. “Unlike traditional methods, the CH Collector method also allows the recovery of metals occurring in very small concentrations.”The new method enabled practically complete removal of uranium from water samples taken from Finnish mines. There was no need to pre-process the samples even though they contained very high concentrations of other metals possibly disturbing the process. The efficiency of the method was also tested on an ore sample that contained scandium. The sample was dissolved and then treated with the new material. The two-phase process made it possible to recover 98% of the scandium.The new method is well-suited for the removal of metals not only from the wastewaters of the mining industry, but also from the wastewaters of the metals processing and chemical industries, which may contain heavy metals and uranium in particular.At the University of Eastern Finland, inventions are currently being commercialised more frequently than ever before. According to UEF Academic Rector Jukka Mönkkönen, this is one of the goals of academic research.“In the commercialisation of this invention, Tekes’s New knowledge and business from research ideas funding instrument and the contacts found via Geological Survey of Finland played an important role. A number of companies were interested in purchasing commercial rights in the invention. The partner company was selected on the grounds of promoting as efficient and as wide a use of the invention as possible. This is why we regarded Chemec as our ideal partner,” says Business Development Advisor Matti Höytö of the University of Eastern Finland.R&D activities around the CH Collector method will continue. Chemec and the University of Eastern Finland are participating in Tekes’s Green Mining Program which seeks to enhance the selective recovery of metals and to create a novel, optimised concept for the treatment of mining industry wastewaters and process waters.“The goal is to create a toolkit for the selective recovery of different metals with the help of bisphosphonates. In the future, these kinds of methods could enable a targeted recovery of rare and valuable earth metals from complex mixtures containing metal ions,” Vepsäläinen says.“This project strengthens the position of Chemec Group on the European export markets and opens possibilities for an increasingly broad mining customer base also outside Europe,” Chemec CEO Tapani Niskanen says. Chemec has more than 25 years of experience in the manufacturing and supply of chemical solutions for industrial actors.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Credit Arians for recognizing this and not letting ego and pride get in the way of the bigger picture.“It was planned ahead of time,” Arians said.You can make the argument that Arizona gave Seattle playoff momentum with Sunday’s win, but the Seahawks need no help in navigating the NFL’s playoff waters. They’ve been there; done that.The only thing that really changed on Sunday was fickle perception, but that’s as common as wind shifts on open water. It’s the nature of a game where teams only play once a week: Too many conclusions are attached to too little data.New England lost its second straight game to close the season on Sunday and suddenly some analysts are ready to rule out the NFL’s most experienced team. It’s ridiculous.The simple reality is this: The Cardinals will have one home playoff game in two weeks to earn a shot at the NFC Championship game. They have proven repeatedly this season that they are up to the task. They have proven repeatedly that they are an elite team with no significant weaknesses and an arsenal of weapons. They should be afforded the benefit of the doubt if a minuscule payoff wasn’t worth the considerable physical and mental investment this week. While he wasn’t excusing the effort, receiver Larry Fitzgerald compared this loss to a 33-7 loss to Green Bay to close the 2009 season after the Cardinals had clinched the NFC West. Arizona rebounded the following week and beat the Packers in the first round of the playoffs.One lackluster performance doesn’t change a fact the Cardinals have driven home all season: they are every bit a Super Bowl contender. If Arians has his way after this loss, this minor setback might actually help the cause.“We’re not going to hang onto this one very long,” Palmer said. “We’re excited about the opportunity ahead of us and we’ll bounce back and be ready to roll in a couple weeks.“We’re not, in any way, panicking or freaking out.

That left Arizona exactly where it started, as the No. 2 seed with a bye and plenty of time to refocus, rest up and turn this loss into a motivational tool.“This was a valuable lesson,” Arians said. “You could see it coming all week. I think coaches, players, everybody fell into that reading the press-clippings thing, anointing us Super Bowl champs. This was a nice wake-up call.“You’d like to go in with a 10-game winning streak but sometimes getting the hell beat out of you is better.”When Chandler Catanzaro’ 51-yard field goal attempt bounced off the left upright as a fitting end to the first half of a 30-6 Seattle whipping, it was time to sit quarterback Carson Palmer and other key players to make sure the Cardinals didn’t get the physical hell beat out of them as well.
