British Actor and Humanitarian Sir Roger Moore Dies at 89

Toronto – When he wasn’t being Bond, James Bond, he was being Roger Moore, talented actor who had inhabited the role of the dashing super spy in seven films. Moore succumbed to cancer at the age of 89, Tuesday, according to his official Twitter account, in his beloved Switzerland.His last appearance was on the stage of London’s Royal Festival Hall in November of 2016, just a short distance from where the actor was born.Moore’s children Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian, issued a statement saying “It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer. The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.” The statement confirmed that, of all his considerable career accomplishments, Moore considered his work for UNICEF to be his greatest source of professional pride.Moore famously, never took his turn as the dashing but deadly James Bond too seriously, at one time saying, “To me, the Bond situations are so ridiculous, so outrageous.” He regularly made fun of the character saying, “you have to treat the humour outrageously as well.”He came to the role in 1973 after fan-favourite Sean Connery grew tired of playing the part. Previously he had enjoyed years of success playing Simon Templar in the British series The Saint in the 1960’s.In 1991, Moore became a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, thanks to the late Audrey Hepburn. In 1996, he spoke at the World Congress Against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children where he disclosed that he himself had been a victim of childhood abuse. He received several awards for his humanitarian work and in 2008, published his autobiography, My Word is My Bond.In accordance with Sir Roger Moore’s wishes, the funeral will be a private, family service in Monaco. read more


Michael Parkinson says he has nothing to apologise for over 1975 clash

first_imgIn an interview with Event magazine, Sir Michael admitted that he might have been a "bit over-reactive" but defended his comments Sir Michael, who was then in his 30s, went on to tell her that she was an “in quotes, a serious actress” and asked if her “equipment” undermined her credibility. “Your figure”, he added when questioned by the actress what he meant. “Serious actresses can’t have big bosoms, is that what you mean?” she replied, outraged. He also quoted a review that described her as “projecting sluttish eroticism” during the encounter, which Dame Helen later described as “enraging” and “extremely creepy”.Yesterday, in an interview with Event magazine, Sir Michael admitted that he might have been a “bit over-reactive” but defended his comments. He also denied that his attitude was sexist, saying: “You have to judge it by what happened in that time. If you didn’t live in that time, you’re not allowed an opinion in my view.”He continued: “Am I a sexist? No, I’m Yorkshire. I’ve been married for 57 years so something must be going right.”Their television clash has prompted years of questions, with both Dame Helen and Sir Michael talking about it in previous interviews. The actress, now 71, later told The Telegraph: “That’s the first talk show I’d ever done.

I would not have done my duty as a human being had I not reacted in a certain way.”I mean, we didn’t like each other. We have not done much since to repair the damage, but that sometimes happens in life.”When asked if there was a chance the pair could make up, he said: “I don’t want to. Nor does she. I don’t regard what happened as being anything other than good television. There is no need to apologise, not at all.”She didn’t want to do an interview and after about ten minutes I didn’t want to interview her. There’s no problem, it’s not World War III for God’s sake.” “I did really well. I was so young and inexperienced. And he was such a f—— sexist old fart. He was. He denies it to this day that it was sexist, but of course he was.”Last year, Dame Helen, who has described interest in her body as “prurient”, also reflected on how sexism remained a problem throughout the 1970s.She said: “That decade, after the sexual revolution but before feminism, was perilous for women. Men saw that as a sort of “Oh fantastic! We can f*** anything, however we like, whenever we like. They’re up for grabs, boys!” In the interview, he quoted a review that described her as “projecting sluttish eroticism” Their disagreement was first sparked more than 40 years ago, when Michael Parkinson dared to suggest to an up-and-coming Helen Mirren that her figure may undermine her credibility as an actress.   But the clash, which prompted a huge sexism row and saw the pair ignore each other for decades, has little chance of repair – at least according to the presenter, who claims he has nothing to apologise for.  Sir Michael introduced the actress as the "sex queen" of the Royal Shakespeare Company Sir Michael introduced the actress as the “sex queen” of the Royal Shakespeare CompanyCredit:Larry Busacca/Getty Imageslast_img read more

Newsstand Sales Down 10 Percent in Q3 2015

first_img Across the industry, sell-through efficiency in the third quarter was 27.4 percent, an improvement on the 26.5 percent recorded in the first half of 2015, but still below the 31 percent sell-through rate recorded over the same period last year. Game/Puzzle/Crossword was by far the biggest winner by category, skyrocketing 54.5 percent in draw and 11.5 percent in revenue over the same period last year and vaulting all the way to 4.9 percent market share. Nearly every other category saw double-digit drops in revenue, including Celebrity and Women’s, which, combined, still make up 38.1 percent of newsstand market share. The Teen/Children category took the biggest hit in both units sold and revenue—29.2 and 26.4 percent, respectively—lending further credence to the theory that young people strongly prefer to access content digitally. Bauer, the top publisher of newsstand magazines in North America in terms of copies produced and sold, announced the withdrawal of the print editions of teen-focused M and Twist magazines last week. Among distributors, CMG continues to be the biggest player, with 38.9 percent market share in the third quarter of 2015, followed by Time Inc. Retail (24.7 percent) and Curtis Circulation Co. (23.2 percent). Combined, the three make up 86.8 percent of distributor market share. All three experienced declines of between 8 and 16 percent in both revenue and units sold. Penny Press/Dell and Kappa Publishing Group, specialists in the Game/Puzzle/Crossword category, bucked the trend by substantially increasing draw. Both saw significant increases in revenue. Of the top five publishers, only Bauer increased draw over the same period last year, which likely led to its comparatively low revenue decline (2.7 percent). center_img North American newsstand magazine sales declined 10.1 percent in the third quarter of 2015 from the same period last year, according to analysis from MagNet, although an average cover price increase of $0.04 (to $5.38) meant that the revenue downturn remained in single digits, falling 9.8 percent to $628.9 million. Time Inc. remains the largest newsstand publisher, with 18 percent of market share, followed by Bauer Publishing Group (10.9 percent) and American Media Inc. (9.9 percent). Hearst and Trusted Media Brands saw the largest declines in newsstand revenue among publishers, at 20.3 and 20.6 percent, respectively. Lost distribution from Source Interlink’s May 2014 exit from the newsstand business had stabilized by the third quarter of last year, reports MagNet, meaning the data once again provides an unskewed year-over-year glimpse of industry sales trends.last_img read more

A section to reap all benefits from budget Amir Khosru

first_imgAmir Khosru Mahmud ChowdhuryBNP senior leader Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury on Thursday said the proposed national budget for fiscal year 2019-20 will facilitate only a section of people instead of fulfilling the hopes and aspirations of the country’s people.In an instant reaction to the new budget, he also said as the government has kept at Tk 1,453.80 billion (Tk 145,380 crore) deficit in the proposed budget, it will have a negative impact on people’s life as the money will ultimately be realised from them.Khosru said the current ‘unelected’ government and parliament have no moral right to present any budget for the nation. “The budget they (govt) presented was formulated only to give a section of people all the facilities. The budget management is now confined to a quarter.”The BNP leader said people’s hopes and aspirations were not reflected in the last general election. “The desires of the people of Bangladesh will also not be fulfilled through the new budget.”Khosru, also a former commerce minister, feared that the government will fill up the huge amount of budget deficit by collecting money from people through raising the tariffs of the utility services.He said the country’s macro economy which was on good track over the last 20 years is now getting affected for lack of good governance, investment and some other reasons. “Our economy is deviating from its correct course.”The BNP also alleged that Bangladesh’s economy has now turned into ‘loan-dependent’ one. “It’s very dangerous that we’re going to be caught in a debt trap. We’ll face serious hurdle to repay the loan in the days to come.”Earlier in the day, finance minister AHM Mustafa Kamal placed a Tk 5,231.90 billion (Tk 523,190 crore) national budget for the 2019-20 fiscal year with the target of 8.2 per cent GDP growth.Khosru said the 8.2 per cent GDP growth is unrealistic as different organisations are raising questions about the country’s GDP growth. “A government which lacks accountability can only set such a GDP growth target.”He also asked the reasons behind the bad condition of the capital markets, rise in unemployment rate and lack of investment if the country’s GDP growth is really high. “How can GDP growth accelerate without investment amid liquidity crisis faced by the banks?”Khosru gave the reaction to the budget at his Banani office.However, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam is scheduled to come with their party’s formal reaction to the budget at a press conference at its chairperson’s Gulshan office at 4pm on Friday.last_img read more


One of Apples Very First Computers Expected to Fetch 400000 at Auction

first_img Register Now » 1 min read Apple diehards will soon have the chance to own a formative piece of the company’s history, when one of the very first Apple 1 computers is auctioned off on October 22.The Apple 1, which marks the storied company’s inaugural product, was concocted by Steve Wozniak in either Steve Jobs’ family garage or in his little sister’s bedroom.The still-functioning motherboard, which will be offered by Bonhams New York, is expected to fetch between $300,000 and $500,000, according to the auction house. For comparison’s sake, when the product was first introduced in 1976, it was sold for a rather ominous $666.66.While the Apple 1 computer singlehandedly “[heralded] the dawn of the personal computer revolution,” according to Bonhams, only 200 units were ever made — roughly 15 of which are still operational today.Related: Apple Reportedly Delays Launch of Jumbo iPad October 9, 2014center_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more

first_img Videos | Computed Tomography (CT) | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: New Advances in CT Imaging Technology Cynthia McColl… read more March 25, 2015 — Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine have developed a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based technique to help improve diagnosis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in children. The technique is detailed in a study published Feb. 5 in Hepatology.Between 5 and 8 million children in the United States have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), yet most cases go undiagnosed.”Currently, diagnosis of NAFLD requires a liver biopsy, which is not always available or performed. This leads to both misdiagnosis and missed diagnoses, hampering patient care and progress in clinical research,” said Jeffrey B. Schwimmer, M.D., professor of clinical pediatrics at UC San Diego, director of the Fatty Liver Clinic at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego and the first author of the study. “Thus, a noninvasive method for diagnosing and/or evaluating NAFLD has the potential to impact millions of children.”NAFLD is characterized by large droplets of fat in at least five percent of a child’s liver cells. Obesity and diabetes are risk factors for NAFLD. Doctors are concerned about NAFLD in children because it can lead to hepatitis, liver scarring, cirrhosis and liver cancer.Traditionally, NAFLD is diagnosed by a gastroenterologist in consultation with a pathologist, who examines the patient’s biopsied liver tissue under a microscope. The presence and severity of liver fat is graded by the pathologist as none, mild, moderate or severe, based on the percentage of liver cells that contain fat droplets.In an effort known as the MRI Rosetta Stone Project, Schwimmer and colleagues used a special MRI technique known as magnitude-based MRI, which was previously developed by researchers in the UC San Diego Liver Imaging Group, to estimate liver proton density fat fraction (PDFF), a biomarker of liver fat content.”Existing techniques for measuring liver fat are dependent upon the individual scanner and the center at which the measurements were made, so they cannot be compared directly,” said Claude B. Sirlin, M.D., professor of radiology at UC San Diego and senior author of the study. “By comparison, PDFF is a standardized marker that is reproducible on different scanners and at different imaging centers. Thus, the results of the current study can be generalized to the broader population.”In this study, the researchers compared the new MRI technique to the standard liver biopsy method of assessing fat in the liver. To do this, the team enrolled 174 children who were having liver biopsies for clinical care. For each patient, the team performed both MRI-estimated PDFF and compared the results to the standard pathology method of measuring fat on a liver biopsy.The team found a strong correlation between the amount of liver fat as measured by the new MRI technique and the grade of liver fat determined by pathology. This is an important step towards being able to use this technology for patients. Notably, the correlation was influenced by both the patient’s gender and the amount of scar tissue in the liver. The correlation between the two techniques was strongest in females and in children with minimal scar tissue.Depending on how the new MRI technology is used, it could correctly classify between 65 and 90 percent of children as having or not having fatty liver tissue.”Advanced magnitude MRI can be used to estimate PDFF in children, which correlates well with standard analysis of liver biopsies,” Schwimmer said. “We are especially excited about the promise of the technology for following children with NAFLD over time. However, further refinements will be needed before this or any other MRI technique can be used to diagnose NAFLD in an individual child.”For more information: www.som.ucsd.edu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough discusses bridging diversity gaps in medical physicsPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 6:05Loaded: 2.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -6:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Spotify has one of the most intricate uses of JavaScript in the

first_imgA former Spotify engineer, Mattias Peter Johansson, has outlined how the music streaming platform uses JavaScript on it’s desktop application. It’s complicated and, according to Reddit, “kind of insane”. Responding to a question on Quora, Johansson says it could be “among the top 25 most intricate uses of JavaScript in the world.” What’s particularly interesting is how this intricate JavaScript has influenced the Spotify architecture and the way the development teams are organized. How JavaScript is used on the Spotify desktop app JavaScript is used across the Spotify desktop client. Wherever UI is concerned, it uses JavaScript. C++ is used for functionality beneath the UI, with JavaScript sitting on top of it. The languages are connected by an interface aptly called a ‘bridge.’ Spotify’s squads and spotlets The Spotify team is made up of small squads of anywhere from 3 to 12 people. Johansson explains that  “a feature is generally owned by a single squad, and during normal conditions the squad has all it needs to develop and maintain its feature.” Each team has as many backend, front end, and mobile developers as necessary for the particular feature it owns. These features are known as ‘spotlets.’ Each of these spotlets are essentially web apps that come together to power the desktop app’s UI. Johansson explains how they work, saying: They all run inside Chromium Embedded Framework, each app living within their own little iframe, which gives squads the ability to work with whatever frameworks they need, without the need to coordinate tooling and dependencies with other squads. The advantage of this is that it makes technical decision making much easier. As Johansson explains, “introducing a library is a discussion between a few people instead of decision that involves ~100 people and their various needs.” Shared functionalities across the Spotify development team Although spotlets and squads create a somewhat fragmented picture of a development team, things are unified. “The latest versions of all Spotlets are zipped and bundled with the desktop client binary on every release, assets and all,” says Johansson. Individual spotlets are also sometimes released where an emergency fix might be needed. Although tooling decisions are left up to individual squads, there are a couple of tools that are used across the team. This includes GLUE, a CSS framework that allows some coordination and alignment in terms of design. The team also rely heavily on npm, as you might expect. “We have our own internal npm repository where we publish internal modules, and we package the code together using a Browserify-like tool.”last_img read more

first_imgLilly Singh on hiring a late-night team that’s ‘representative of the world’ TORONTO — Lilly Singh describes this stage of her life as “the calm before the storm.”The Toronto-raised YouTube sensation known as “Superwoman” says she’s in the process of hiring a team for her trailblazing and highly anticipated late-night talk show that’s set to start in September on NBC and Global.Announced in March, “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” replaces Carson Daly’s slot, making the Indian-Canadian actress-comedian-writer the first woman of colour to host a daily late-night show on a major broadcast network.“I am meeting with showrunners, directors, writers, head writers to try to build a team that not only is super talented but is representative of the world and also people I enjoy being with, because I’m going to spend a lot of time with them,” Singh, 30, said Monday in an interview.“So I’m in that point of the process, which is really exciting — but the chaos hasn’t started yet.”Singh was speaking at the downtown Toronto headquarters of Corus Entertainment to help the company unveil its fall/winter 2019-2020 season.The Corus event came the day after Game 2 of the NBA Finals matchup of the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors, which Singh attended in the city.She’s expressed her love for the Raptors on her social media accounts in recent days and is optimistic they’ll clinch the title despite the team’s 109-104 loss Sunday, which tied up the series at 1-1.“I, in my heart, believe that we can take them,” Singh said. “I don’t have a doubt in my mind.“Listen, based on these two games, I’m going to say it: I don’t think that Golden State is better than us. I think we are better than them and I think we are going to win.”Singh’s show is one of the biggest highlights of the Corus lineup, which it touts as “vibrant and diverse.”“The second we heard that announcement come out that NBC was doing that, we absolutely — before seeing any other stuff in L.A. — from that point on just said, ‘That’s the show. We want that show,’” said Daniel Eves, senior vice-president of TV networks at Corus Entertainment.Canadian series renewed for Corus’s specialty networks include History’s “Vikings,” which is a co-production with Ireland, and “Top Chef Canada” and “Iron Chef Canada” on Food Network Canada.Global’s 2019-2020 lineup has a total of 12 new series. Others include a revival of “Kids Say the Darndest Things” with Tiffany Haddish as host; the crime thriller “Prodigal Son” with Michael Sheen; the comedy “The Unicorn”; and the psychological mystery “Evil.”The network also has the final season of hit comedy “Modern Family,” which previously aired on Citytv.Returning Canadian shows on Global include “Private Eyes” and “Big Brother Canada.”New homegrown shows include the previously announced original dramas “Nurses” and “Departure,” which is a Canada/U.K. co-production starring Emmy winner Archie Panjabi and Oscar winner Christopher Plummer.Also noteworthy but not technically part of the fall lineup is “BH90210,” a tongue-in-cheek spinoff of “Beverly Hills, 90210,” which premieres Aug. 7.And the hospital/midlife sitcom “Carol’s Second Act” starring Patricia Heaton of “Everybody Loves Raymond” fame has several Canadians: Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Sabrina Jalees, and Ito Aghayere.“We’re actually working on getting Patty to convert … see if we can’t make her at least a dual citizen by the end of the second season,” Jalees jested.“They keep bringing in poutine and maple syrup,” added Heaton.Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Lilly Singh is photographed in Toronto on Monday, June 3, 2019, as she promotes “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” her upcoming late-night talk show that will be broadcast by NBC and Global.
