Lilly 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.

It has been a busy week for Chris Huhne, Britain’s secretary for energy and climate change. On Tuesday he announced the government’s commitment to a 50% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. On Wednesday, he said the government would submit, for ratification by Parliament, guidelines for developing major energy infrastructure projects, including those based on nuclear power.As noted in a recent post by energy-and-metals news source Platts, the infrastructure-planning guidelines, called National Policy Statements, provide a framework for decisions on planning applications for such projects.Huhne has been mentioned by GBA for his advocacy of the Passivhaus standard, which he has said he would like to see adopted as the convention, rather than the exception, for new-home building in the U.K. as it strives to bring all new homes to zero-carbon performance.An attempt at green innovation in difficult economic timesHuhne now has his hands full, in any case. The U.K.’s attempts at economic recovery – while the government simultaneously imposes stringent budget-austerity measures and sets challenging energy conservation goals – are being closely watched. Meanwhile, Britain’s treasury department and some of the country’s business interests have pushed back against the emission-target commitments over worries they would reduce the U.K.’s growth prospects and international competitiveness.As noted in a recent overview posted by The Independent, the government also has cut funding for clean-energy technologies such as solar power, and the coalition government’s newly announced “green bank” – an entity established specifically to invest green technologies – will not be able to borrow money for renewable-energy projects until 2015 (although it does already have about $4.85 billion to invest).Still, the secretary has vowed to make the transformation to low-carbon living as economically palatable for businesses as possible, in part through shifts to nuclear power and offshore wind farms as the country reckons with its inventory of aging power plants.“We are demonstrating our desire to drive the changes needed to turn the U.K. into a dynamic, low-carbon economy that is attractive to investors in the new and growing low-carbon sectors,” Huhne said as he announced the carbon-reduction commitments during an address before the House of Commons. “We are also sending a clear signal to the international community: that the U.K. is committed to the low-carbon economy.”The next step will be to go from the legally binding commitments to concrete plans. It will be an interesting process every step of the way.
Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining (STEM), Hon. Phillip Paulwell, says the computer tablets to be issued to students will have security features to prevent criminals from stealing them. Under the Schools Tablet Computer Programme, some 30,000 devices will be distributed to students and teachers from 30 institutions across the island, through phase II of the E-Learning Programme. Speaking at a post-budget press briefing at Jamaica House, on Thursday, April 25, Mr. Paulwell said he is aware of the security concerns and very serious considerations have been given to ensure the security of the computers. “[We know] the attractiveness of these devices for people who would want to acquire them without paying for them…but we believe that we can overcome the dangers that could befall the programme,” he assured. He noted that, as such, each tablet computer has been fitted with a number of security features, which ensures that the device can be tracked if stolen. “Every one of these devices will have a feature that can track them wherever they are, anywhere in the world. So, if for example, a child is missing from school, we can tell their parents where the child has been,” he said. The Minister, therefore, had a message for criminals. “For those people who think that they will be able to steal them, you will probably be able to steal one, but you won’t be able to use it, and we will find you long before you know it,” he warned. Mr. Paulwell said efforts have been made to block access to harmful content, such as pornographic websites. In the meantime, the Minister announced that more schools will be added to the programme. “When we checked the number of students and teachers [in the 30 schools selected] we are now at 25,000, so we are about 5,000 less than the 30,000 that we want,” he explained. Mr. Paulwell said, in light of this, the Ministry of Education will be asked to recommend a few more schools for the project. So far, some five early childhood institutions, 10 primary schools, five junior high schools and 10 high schools across the country have been selected. He said the schools selected to participate in the pilot are among those that have been assessed and found to be under-performing academically by the Education Ministry. Under the programme, each school will be made into a wireless hotspot, offering free access to broadband Internet for students and the wider community.By Athaliah Reynolds-Baker, JIS Reporter
