Transformers earns almost as much in China as in US after record

by By Louise Watt, The Associated Press Posted Jul 6, 2014 2:37 am MDT ‘Transformers’ earns almost as much in China as in US after record number of screenings AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email BEIJING, China – The latest “Transformers” movie, which features Chinese locations, actors and products, has so far earned almost as much in China as in the United States, driven by a record number of screenings for a foreign movie.“Transformers: Age of Extinction” has made an estimated $149 million in the U.S. and $134 million in China, the world’s biggest and second-biggest movie markets, respectively, according to figures from box office tracking website Box Office Mojo.Director Michael Bay’s film, which was released June 27 in both markets, heavily courted the Chinese audience by employing Chinese stars, basing part of the action in cities in China and showing Chinese products such as liquor and milk. A reality TV show to choose four people to play roles in the film helped to drum up publicity.Observers say “Transformers” is on course to beat “Avatar” as the biggest earner at the fast-growing Chinese box office. “Avatar” earned $218 million in China in 2010.More than half of China’s more than 20,000 screens showed the fourth in the “Transformers” blockbuster franchise.Hou Tao, vice-president of leading entertainment consultancy EntGroup, said Sunday that on average 55 per cent of screens were set aside for the movie at the start, which had dropped to 46-48 per cent in the last few days. He said that it was a record for foreign movies, which would normally be lucky to be shown on 40 per cent of screens.Whether any other foreign movie will receive such a favourable screening “just depends on the movie itself, whether it’s popular, whether it’s competitive enough, and whether at the time there is no other movie to compete with it,” Hou said.He said “Transformers” had done well in China because of its Chinese elements and it hadn’t had to compete with any other big movies. Also, advertisers who had arranged for their products to be shown in the movie promoted the film by offering free tickets, Hou said.___Associated Press researcher Henry Hou contributed to this report. read more


A dark day in a bleak year for children UNICEF condemns attack

According to media reports, a school bus carrying the 15 school girls was hit by a car bomb as it passed a checkpoint in the Yemeni province of Al Bayda, south of the country’s capital of Sana’a. The deaths come on a day already marked the mass killing of children in a school in Peshawar, Pakistan where 132 children were murdered by Taliban militants earlier this morning. “There can be no justification for such unspeakable savagery against children as they go about the simple act of going to school, or against teachers as they work to educate them,” UNICEF declared in a statement. “Each life taken in Peshawar and Al Bayda is a future lost forever.”The UN agency pointed out that in 2014 schools had repeatedly become the targets of violence with students, teachers, and school staff caught in the crosshairs and “paying a terrible price.” In addition, the statement said, children had been affected as never before in recent memory by violence and extreme hatred, with some 230 million children living in countries affected by conflict. Just last week, UNICEF Executive Director, Anthony Lake, lamented that 2014 had been “a devastating year” for the world’s children and that protracted crises in countries like Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan, and Yemen, continued to claim “even more young lives and futures” without any indication of stopping. “These tragedies underscore why 2015 must be the year when protecting our children against violence of every kind, whether in conflict or in peace, whether in school or at home, and in every circumstance, becomes a global priority,” the statement concluded. read more


Ohio State mens soccer falls to Wisconsin 20 in regular season finale

The Ohio State men’s soccer team (5-7-5, 1-3-2) earned the sixth seed in the Big Ten Tournament after falling, 2-0, to No. 16 Wisconsin in the team’s regular season finale Friday. The loss on the Badgers’ senior night snapped a five-game unbeaten streak for the Buckeyes, who finished the regular season winning three of their last four matches.Buckeye coach John Bluem said he hopes the team learned that it needs to match the physical intensity of its opponents if it wants to play and get a win.“They physically dominated us, they were more aggressive than we were and they played harder than we played,” he said. “In most of the games this year, especially when we started playing better, it’s when we started matching the other team’s physical aggressiveness.”Although the Buckeyes began the match aggressive, taking the first shot and forcing the first three corner kick opportunities, a first-half goal by the Badgers (13-3-2, 4-2-0) halted Buckeye redshirt-junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov’s four-game, 445-minute spell of not allowing a goal. The goal came in the 23rd minute of play when Wisconsin redshirt-senior midfielder Tomislav Zadro scored off a diving header from the far post, after connecting with Badger sophomore midfielder Drew Connor. The goal was Zadro’s fourth of the season.The Buckeyes tried to fight back, firing two shots of their own in the following six minutes, but were unable to find the back of the net. At the half, the Badgers had outshot the Buckeyes, 6-5.The Badgers added to their lead with a second-half goal midway through the 71st minute. Badger senior forward Nick Janus finished off a knockdown from an OSU defender, squeaking it past Ivanov into the right side of the net. The goal gave the Badgers a 2-0 cushion, eventually leading to the victory.Despite leaving Madison, Wis., with a loss, Ivanov said the team was able to learn some last-minute things about itself before heading into the conference tournament.“I think we learned that obviously, when we’re sharper than that, we usually play a lot better than we did,” Ivanov said. “We didn’t have that extra fiery edge that we usually do, and we all know collectively that we’re better than the performance we had.”Buckeye senior defender Sage Gardner said the way the team prepared for Wisconsin proves to him that the team can play at the same level of play as any team in the conference.“I think Wisconsin was a little fluke for us — we definitely got out-hustled and out-muscled playing up at Wisconsin for their senior night,” he said. “I think it was kind of a tough situation for us and I don’t think we responded well, but I think the way we’ve been ending the season the way we’re moving upwards is a positive.”Wisconsin finished the match outshooting OSU, 14-7, but Ivanov was able to gather six saves, propelling him into seventh place for single-season saves in OSU history with 101 on the season.Up next, the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on No. 18 Michigan State in the first round of the 2013 Big Ten Tournament at 2 p.m. Wednesday. The teams met earlier in the season, playing to a 1-1 tie in double overtime. read more


Tom Bradys Statistical Place In The Pantheon Of NFL QBs

19Bob Griese+356439Matt Ryan+1865 1Joe Montana+20768021Mark Rypien+39538 6Troy Aikman+11564826Jeff Hostetler+33862 Why? Under the leverage-weighted scheme, playoff games are given an incredible amount of emphasis. Wild card games are worth about 26 times as much as the average regular season game; that multiplier becomes 51 for the divisional round, 102 for the conference championship games and a whopping 205 for the Super Bowl (you can read more about this math at the end of the post).Because of the extreme weighting given to playoff games, Brady loses ground to Montana, whose three best Super Bowls were each at least 47 adjusted yards of value better than any of Brady’s Super Bowls. (Montana’s worst Super Bowl was also better than three of Brady’s Super Bowls.) Warner also gets a massive boost from his Super Bowl performances in 2000 and 2009 — the latter of which ranks as the single-best passing game of the Super Bowl era after adjusting for the strength of opponent and the leverage of the game — in addition to big games at lower rungs of the playoff ladder. Adding in the postseason hurts Brady.So, is Brady the best all of time? At his regular-season peak, he might very well be. And if he has a few more great seasons, he could pass Manning on career value over average. But for now, Montana reigns supreme among Super Bowl-era QBs when playoff performance is included in the calculations.Here’s how the math works out: The average regular-season game moves a team’s chances of winning the Super Bowl by about 0.24 percentage points. That’s because every team starts out with a 1 in 32 chance of winning it all, which inevitably moves to either zero (for the 20 teams who miss the playoffs) or 1 in 12 ( for playoff teams) once all 16 games are played. Meanwhile, the Super Bowl swings each team’s chances by 50 percent — either up from 50-50 to 100 percent, or down to zero. 19Daryle Lamonica+4287939Bob Griese+19743 13Roger Staubach+530333Phil Simms+2161 4Joe Montana+795124Daryle Lamonica+3008 6Aaron Rodgers+754526Jim Kelly+2669 18Boomer Esiason+394438Mark Brunell+1935 11Ben Roethlisberger+561531Joe Namath+2371 7Fran Tarkenton+742127Carson Palmer+2620 7Brett Favre+10093527Jim McMahon+32416 13Aaron Rodgers+6203133Donovan McNabb+23794 15Roger Staubach+5680335Joe Theismann+23474 QUARTERBACKWEIGHTED VALUEQUARTERBACKWEIGHTED VALUE QUARTERBACKREG.

But here’s where the twist comes in: After crediting playoff passing value over average (according to the same formula described above) with weight given to each game according to how much it changes a team’s probability of winning the Super Bowl relative to the average regular season game — a form of leverage index for the importance of football games — Brady passes Manning but is surpassed by two others: Joe Montana and our old friend Kurt Warner: 14Bart Starr+6197034Dan Fouts+23589 18Russell Wilson+4311838Randall Cunningham+20142 16Joe Flacco+5043836Erik Kramer+23353 3Tom Brady+13135523Eli Manning+38401 4Terry Bradshaw+12641024Ken Anderson+37520 14Philip Rivers+520434Bart Starr+2155 15Brett Favre+502035Troy Aikman+2071 10Dan Fouts+686330Matt Schaub+2379 8Drew Brees+8710528Doug Williams+29832 10John Elway+7059330Mark Sanchez+28016 9Steve Young+7104529Len Dawson+28991 12Ken Stabler+6337232Philip Rivers+24280 11Jim Plunkett+6547731Bernie Kosar+25207 3Dan Marino+1035423John Hadl+3094 A vast amount of column space was spent this week debating whether Tom Brady had finally ascended to No. 1 in the all-time pantheon of quarterbacking greatness. (Many of the articles argued that, yes, Brady is now the best ever.)These assessments leaned heavily on the fact that Brady is tied with Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw for the most Super Bowl victories of any quarterback. But even Patriots fans have to acknowledge that “count the rings” isn’t the most nuanced argument in the world. So, what do the numbers say about Brady’s legacy?The common narrative is that early-career Brady wasn’t a statistical monster, to the point that his playoff wins over Peyton Manning in 2003 and 2004 were held up as victories for clutch, gritty winners everywhere. But the truth is that, in addition to his gaudy record as a postseason starter, Brady was one of the league’s top five to 10 regular-season quarterbacks statistically even before his transformation into a passing efficiency god in 2007.In other words, the “clutch game manager” phase of Brady’s career was never as game manager-y as his detractors made it out to be. And ever since, he’s been as efficient a regular-season QB as any in NFL history.To measure QB performance, I used Chase Stuart’s formula for passing value, which compares a quarterback’s adjusted net yards per attempt (ANY/A) to the league average after adjusting for home-field advantage, weather effects and strength of schedule. By that metric, the late-career version of Brady owns practically every stretch of the best consecutive peak passing regular seasons in the Super Bowl era:Now, some of that is due to sheer passing volume; while shorter schedules have been prorated to 16 games, today’s passers drop back so much more often per game than their predecessors did that they have more chances to add value. Even so, Brady’s stats have risen far above those of his peers (including Manning) during the peak of his career once all the aforementioned adjustments are made.In terms of total career regular season value, however, Brady does not rank No. 1 among Super Bowl era quarterbacks — his 11,921 adjusted yards of value over average ranks second to Manning’s 13,791-yard mark: 12Tony Romo+540632Jim Hart+2303 20Len Dawson+354640Bert Jones+1852 5Steve Young+785425Donovan McNabb+2837 16Kurt Warner+434436John Brodie+1978 1Peyton Manning+1379121Trent Green+3512 5Peyton Manning+12247425Colin Kaepernick+35337 2Tom Brady+1192122Sonny Jurgensen+3145 read more


Wii U Dragon Quest X expected spring 2013

first_imgIn order for any games console to succeed it needs a range of titles that are classed as “system sellers” — those games that people want to play so badly they will purchase a console to get them. Microsoft has Halo, Sony has Gran Turismo and Uncharted, and Nintendo has Mario and Zelda. But there are a whole host of other game series that fall into this category.The Wii U doesn’t have any system sellers at launch, but it does have a few in the pipeline. One of those is Monster Hunter and the other is Dragon Quest, in particular Dragon Quest X. The only problem is, Square Enix hasn’t confirmed when it will see a release.In Japan, Dragon Quest is a huge deal and when it gets released for Wii U it should be accompanied by a massive spike in console sales for Nintendo. And the good news for Nintendo is they probably don’t have to wait that long for DQX. Yuuji Horii, the creator of Dragon Quest, has stated during the Tokyo Game Show that the development team is working towards a Spring 2013 release. Whether they hit it or not is anyone’s guess.An early 2013 launch would certainly help the Wii U in its home territory. The only concern is that DQX isn’t actually a new game as it has already seen a release on the Wii. Will that kill interest in the game? Unlikely, but Square Enix needs to incorporate some sort of transfer system for those gamers playing it on the Wii and wanting to make the switch. As for a release in the West, nothing is confirmed but with a marketing push behind it the game could sell well over here.DQX was released in Japan at the beginning of August and made headlines at the time due to its 70 minute install on the Wii. Hopefully that can be minimized in time for the Wii U launch.via Kotakulast_img read more


Andrew Jackomos Australias First Commissioner For Aboriginal Kids steps down

The farewell ceremony takes place tonight at the Greek Centre in Melbourne.During his tenure, Mr Jackomos has made a significant contribution in improving the lives of Aboriginal children and young people through his advocacy for the Aboriginal Children’s Forum, the Aboriginal Justice Forum and Indigenous Family Violence Partnership Forum.“Andrew has been tireless in his work as Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People, highlighting significant issues and forging a path for improved outcomes for young people for many years to come,” Minister for Families and Children Jenny Mikakos said.“Andrew’s work will continue to benefit Aboriginal Victorians and the broader community – we thank him for his dedication and continued service to Aboriginal people.”Mr Jackomos is also responsible for the establishment of the Victorian Young People Alliance and the development of a state-wide Aboriginal Children’s Agreement which he will continue to oversee as the Special Adviser for Self-Determination, within the Department of Premier and Cabinet.He will conclude his time in his current role on January 31 but the Labor Government will continue to work towards implementing his recommendations into the child protection system’s application of the Aboriginal child placement principle and the task-force that examined circumstances of approximately 1,000 Aboriginal children and young people in out-of-home care.In addition to his work as Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People he has also played an important role in the implementation of the Labor Government’s Roadmap for Reform, helping to give Aboriginal people responsibility for the care and decision-making of Aboriginal children and families while he has established the Walda Blow Award to recognise the contribution of Aboriginal people in Victoria to the safety and well-being of Aboriginal children and young people.last_img read more


Helicopter crashes into pub roof in Glasgow

first_imgLONDON — A police helicopter crashed into the roof of a crowded Glasgow pub, causing “numerous” casualties and leaving people trapped in the unstable building, officials said early Saturday.Authorities said they had made contact with people still inside The Clutha pub in the city center. They said some people had been taken to hospitals but that it was too soon to give a number of injured. Witnesses spoke of people streaming out of the building covered in blood, with gashes and other injuries.“Given an incident of this scale we must all prepare ourselves for the likelihood of fatalities,” Scotland’s leader, Alex Salmond, said on his official Twitter account.Television images showed what appeared to be the helicopter’s propeller sticking out of the popular one-story pub’s roof.The crash Friday at around 10:30 p.m. local time sent dozens of patrons fleeing through a cloud of dust.It was unclear how many people were still inside, Asst. Chief Officer Lewis Ramsay with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said. He said teams — including 125 firefighters on the scene — were working to stabilize the building and “get people out.”A crew of three — two police officers and a civilian pilot — were aboard the Eurocopter EC135 T2, according to Scottish police. Deputy Chief Constable Rose Fitzpatrick said it was too early to offer details on why the helicopter came down.last_img read more

Man Spent 36Plus Hours Painting in VR to Break Guinness World Record

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Everyone has goals. Jack McNee’s was to earn the Guinness World Record for longest videogame marathon on a virtual reality game system.Congratulations, Jack.On April 2, McNee broke the world record (and then some) during a 36-hour stint inside the virtual world of Tilt Brush.(via VR Designers/YouTube)The 3D painting program from Google lets users paint life-size, three-dimensional masterpieces using the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.Holed up at Sydney-based arcade VR Corner, McNee strapped on a virtual reality headset and proceeded to spend the next day and a half drawing everything from the famed Simpsons couch gag and Wilson the volleyball to Adventure Time and Pokemon characters.(It is unclear whether his bill—which, according to the online price list, should have totaled $2,448—was waived for the event.)Jack live-streamed the whole event (via VR Designers/YouTube)One of the requirements for the record is to use a single VR app: McNee wisely chose Tilt Brush for its freedom; during the event’s live-stream, he was able to play rounds of Hangman and Pictionary with viewers.Aside from a few quick bathroom breaks, gameplay continued for a whopping 36 hours, two minutes, and 16 seconds; dedicated friends and volunteers hand-fed McNee pizza and other food while he composed in thin air.The brains behind YouTube account LPVR, McNee handily stole the Guinness title from UK tech journalist Georgie Barrat, who previously held the record of 25 hours, 24 minutes, and 18 seconds.McNee beat her by roughly 11 hours.

Apocalyptic Fallout 76 Beta Bug Raises Our Morbid Curiosity

first_img The Fallout franchise is about things being broken. A post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland is a broken world. A constant social clash between mutants, neo-minutemen militia, synthetic people, amoral science groups, and dudes in powered armored is a broken system. You pay for scrap metal in bottle caps.But even outside the in-game lore Fallout is about being broken, especially since Bethesda took over in 2008. Realizing these huge, intricate clockwork worlds requires technology that’s equally impressive and unstable. Modern Fallout has always featured glitches and bugs ranging from gamebreaking crashes to hilarious mashups of fierce combat behind casual dialogue sequences. And the upcoming Fallout 76 looks to continue this broken legacy as a particularly nasty bug in the ongoing PC beta has us morbidly curious for the final November 14 release. Play ‘Fallout 76’ Nuclear Winter Battle Royale as Long as Yo…Fallout 76’s Bags Are Broken, Too The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. (Break-it Early Test Application) has been recently rolling out on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It’s coming to PC, too. But hours before launch Bethesda gave players a seasonally appropriate spooky warning not to press any buttons at all while the client downloaded. The help forums were down but over on the Fallout 76 Reddit you can learn that a clicking a button while downloading could accidentally delete the entire 50GB file before even playing. This bug could break the game literally before you even start it. The upside is, Bethesda is extending the length of the beta so tech issues don’t cheat players out of their hands-on time.I guess we should have seen this coming. Fallout games were broken enough when they were strictly single-player affairs. But Fallout 76’s main hook is giving players a connected online multiplayer wasteland world to survive in. Testing that is much more complex, which was why this beta was even needed in the first place. And before the beta began Bethesda practically begged fans not to get too upset about the “spectacular” bugs and performance issues they would surely encounter.But man, Fallout 76 is only two weeks away. If we’re seeing bugs like this now, the most entertaining part about this game might not be playing it while it works but witnessing just what could happen when it doesn’t.

In The Herd Joel Klatt explains why he would take Lamar Jackson

first_imgWith only  week until the NFL Draft, the disinformation from NFL teams and over analysis prospect has reached peak silly season. Among the biggest questions heading into the draft is which quarterback the Browns will take with the first pick.According to a number of reports, Wyoming’s Josh Allen is firmly in the mix to go #1, but today in The Herd, FS1 College Football Analyst Joel Klatt told Colin that he doesn’t see any valid argument based on his evaluation to take Allen over Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, or Josh Rosen.Klatt added that he would take Louisville’s Lamar Jackson over Allen because at least he regularly dominated his competition. When he watched Allen’s tape, he never saw a single game where Allen was the dominant player, in addition to his serious accuracy issues and inability to anticipate throws.Allen is the most polarizing boom or bust prospect in the draft, and Klatt is calling bust. Watch the Klattster explain why the honorable mention quarterback in the Mountain West has no business going #1.“If I was in the room, I would take Lamar Jackson before Josh Allen. Josh Allen has the biggest bust factor of any of these quarterbacks.” — @joelklatt— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) April 19, 2018last_img read more
