first_imgMan City boss Guardiola: Congratulations to Crystal Palaceby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City boss Pep Guardiola says they won’t lose their fighting spirit after defeat at home to Crystal Palace.With the Blues trailing league leaders Liverpool by four points, Guardiola refused to be drawn into talk of panic, crediting Palace for their triumph and urging a response from the Champions on Boxing Day.”We have an incredible team – fantastic players,” he stated. “We started quite decent and created chances. We scored a fantastic goal and after they passed the halfway line they scored.”The first two times Crystal Palace crossed our halfway line, they scored. We played good. Their second goal was an incredible goal.“We reacted well to the second goal and in the second half, we started okay. We put more people in the box.”The third goal… the penalty was really tough for us. We cannot concede the penalty we conceded. We have to try and avoid it. Football is like this – three shots on goal and three goals.“We scored a goal – a little bit late but even then, we had chances to score. We did absolutely everything.“They arrived two times and before the penalty, they hit the post but they didn’t have another shot on target.“Congratulations to Palace. Defensively, they were brilliant. I give a lot of credit.“That is football and sometimes it happens. The teams are good and there is a lot of quality.“Now, we must go onto the next one. There are a lot of games to play. We have to recover mentally and recover our physicality.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

CFC Media Lab NFB and JustFilms Ford Foundation Partner to Present Creative

first_imgAdvertisement “The pairing of Canada’s top Indigenous talent with notable American artists from culturally diverse backgrounds will ignite a timely, new discussion on point of view and representation in a new storytelling medium,” said Anita Lee, Executive Producer, English Program (Ontario Centre) for the NFB. “The notions of ‘reality’ and ‘truth’ have never been more nuanced with the expansion of new technologies, and therefore capturing and representing ‘reality’ never more interesting, especially in the hands of artists whose voices are not often heard in the commercial industry.”OPEN IMMERSION has been designed to immerse the participants in both the theory and practice of creating immersive, interactive media and to push the creative storytelling process. The talent and project lab will engage the 12 storytellers in an inspiring and rigorous hands-on creative development process comprised of keynote presentations, case study critiques, group sessions and peer collaboration.“The OPEN IMMERSION Lab is our first foray with the National Film Board of Canada and the Canadian Film Centre. Our goal is to create a corridor of opportunity for visual artists to explore VR technology as the aesthetics of this new platform are being developed,” said JustFilms Director Cara Mertes. “Even though it’s very early days for VR, we are seeing how it can give socially-engaged storytellers a powerful tool to create immersive experiences with the potential to disrupt the entrenched social narratives that contribute to inequality.”The 12 artists participating in this lab come from a variety of disciplines in film, theatre, visual art, interactive media and more. The six Canadian artists are:Scott Benesiinaabandan: An Anishinabe intermedia artist, Benesiinaabandan works primarily in photography, video, audio and printmaking, and currently is based in Montreal.Kevin Lee Burton: An award-winning director, programmer and editor, Burton is originally from God’s Lake Narrows First Nation in Manitoba, Canada.Danis Goulet: An award-winning filmmaker whose short films have screened at festivals around the world, Goulet (Cree/Metis) was born in La Ronge, Saskatchewan and now resides in Toronto.Nyla Innuksuk: A filmmaker originally from Igloolik and Iqaluit, Innuksuk is nowworking in Toronto on a variety of projects, including music videos, television series and her own documentary film about Inuit youth.Lisa Jackson: An award-winning filmmaker working in both fiction and documentary, Jacksonis Anishinaabe, has a BFA in Film Production from Simon Fraser University, and has completed the Canadian Film Centre’s (CFC) Directors’ Lab.Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers: A Blackfoot and Sami actor, producer, filmmaker and curator from the Kainai First Nation, Tailfeathers divides her time between Vancouver, Canada, the Blood Reserve and Sami territory in Sweden.The six American artists are:Kai Lumumba Barrow: A New Orleans-based visual artist, Barrow sews together elements of interactive theatre, multimedia installation and performance to create “visual operas” that explore ideas of community, place and identity.Michaela Pilar Brown: An image and object maker, Brown is a multidisciplinary artist using photography, installation and performance.Kimi Maeda: A theatre artist based in Columbia, South Carolina, Maeda’s intimate visual performances cross disciplines and pushboundaries. Her ephemera trilogy is a collection of sand drawing and shadow performances that deals with memory, home and trans-cultural identity.Tiona McClodden: A visual artist and filmmaker, McClodden creates work that explores and critiques issues at the intersections of race, gender, sexuality and social commentary.Jacqueline Olive: An award-winning multimedia producer and filmmaker, Olive founded Tell It Media in 2011 to create documentaries that tell nuanced stories of the people, places and cultures that make up our diverse world.RaMell Ross: A Rhode Island-based artist whose work has been exhibited in the U.S. and internationally, Ross is currently a Research Affiliate at the MIT Media Lab and an Assistant Professor of Practice in Brown University’s Visual Arts Department. He is in production on his first feature film, Idiom (Hale County This Morning, This Evening).“The CFC Media Lab has a long history of designing and facilitating programs that offer a rigorous critique of the medium through knowledge immersion and prototyping,” said Ana Serrano, Chief Digital Officer, CFC. “VR exists on a continuum of immersive and interactive media practices and storytelling. The participants of OPEN IMMERSION each come from diverse backgrounds and disciplines; they not only understand that continuum, but also bring their own ways of seeing and doing storytelling into VR. The results will enhance the ongoing and now-more inclusive conversation about what it means to tell an immersive and interactive story.”Read more about OPEN IMMERSION: A Virtual Reality Creative Doc Lab here.Social MediaCanadian Film Centre (CFC)@cfccreatesfacebook.com/cfccreatesCFC Media Lab@cfcmedialabfacebook.com/cfcmedialabNFB@the NFBfacebook.com/nfb.caAbout CFC The Canadian Film Centre (CFC) is a charitable organization whose mission is to invest in and inspire the next generation of world-class Canadian content creators and entrepreneurs in the screen-based entertainment industry.

Wellsite pipeline leak spills 560 barrels of oil emulsion into Alberta swamp

first_imgCALGARY – The Alberta Energy Regulator says a pipeline owned by Calgary-based Mount Bastion Oil & Gas Corp. has leaked about 560 barrels of an oil and water mixture at a northern Alberta wellsite.AER spokesman Jordan Fitzgerald says the regulator has staff supervising cleanup by the company at the site about 65 kilometres northwest of Red Earth Creek, which is about 420 kilometres north of Edmonton.He says the company reports the oil emulsion spill affected about 5,000 square metres of swampy muskeg, adding there have been no reports of injury to wildlife or damage to nearby creeks.Data on the AER website indicates the spill is the largest of three pipeline leaks the company has reported in the past 16 months.In July 2016, it reported a pipeline leaked about 315 barrels of oil and 125 barrels of produced saltwater at a site 75 kilometres northwest of Red Earth Creek, and in December 2016 it reported a leak of three barrels of oil and 120 barrels of saltwater at a site 30 kilometres northeast of the town.Fitzgerald says the company’s previous record will be considered by staff as they investigate the spill. The company could face penalties ranging from warnings to fines or licence restrictions.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. The original said the spill was oil alone.last_img read more

Battle Royale Potential replacements must prove theyre the right candidate

Saturday’s spring scrimmage might mean spring practices are coming to an end, but a number of position battles are just starting to heat up. Because of graduation and suspensions, at least 14 of 22 starters from last season won’t be on the field come the opening game of the season against Akron. The spring scrimmage is the players’ last chance to make a positive impression on the coaches before summer practice. Here’s a look at the top position battles to watch Saturday. Quarterback The most high-profile battle is undoubtedly at the quarterback position. Senior Joe Bauserman, redshirt freshman Taylor Graham, redshirt sophomore Ken Guiton, and freshman Braxton Miller are all vying to replace the suspended Terrelle Pryor for the first five games of the season, but none has made a strong enough case to be named the starter. Bauserman seems to be the first guy on the depth chart, but a senior getting the nod in a close battle is no surprise on a Jim Tressel-coached team and all candidates are getting reps with the first team offense. “They shine their own day,” redshirt junior Jake Stoneburner said. “They all seem to be getting a good grasp of the offense.” With Pryor still sidelined from surgery on his left foot, look for all quarterbacks to get equal opportunity on Saturday. Cornerback Perhaps the fiercest battle of the spring has been for the second starting cornerback position. Junior Travis Howard has arguably been the most impressive player on the Buckeye team this spring and has locked up a starting job, but the other corner spot is wide open. Coming into spring, Tressel spoke highly of sophomore Dominic Clarke. “We’ve kind of seen a transformation from (Clarke) not unlike we’ve seen from (former Buckeye Malcolm Jenkins),” Tressel said. But Clarke has some competition. Dionte Allen, a transfer from Florida State, has shown a great open-field tackling ability in addition to coverage skills. Sophomore Bradley Roby wasn’t necessarily expected to be in the picture for a starting job, but has played his way into the conversation. He’s shown playmaking ability and a nose for the football, intercepting two passes in last Saturday’s scrimmage. Howard said he’s not sure how the fight will end. “They’ve all been battling and each of them have their days,” Howard said. “I’m looking forward to see who actually comes out on top because those are three great cornerbacks.” Left tackle Senior Mike Adams’ suspension for the first five games leaves a hole on the offensive line at left tackle. Sophomore Andrew Norwell and redshirt sophomore Marcus Hall have emerged as the leading candidates to fill the gap. Norwell was the favorite entering spring practice, but Hall has been impressive, especially after being separated from the team last year because of academic issues. Saturday’s scrimmage could go a long way in determining who ultimately gets the starting job, but Adams says either one would be more than adequate to replace him. “Those guys filling in at left tackle are doing a great job. They’ve really made a lot of progress since we’ve started,” Adams said. “When you’ve got two big guys like that who are athletic, as long as they know what they’re going to do, they’ll be fine for the season.” Linebacker Senior Andrew Sweat and redshirt junior Etienne Sabino are clear starters at linebacker, but sixth-year senior Tyler Moeller, juniors Storm Klein and Jonathan Newsome, and redshirt freshman Dorian Bell all have a chance to see the field in the upcoming season. Moeller hasn’t participated in spring scrimmages thus far, so look for Klein, Newsome, and Bell to fight it out Saturday. read more


Ohio State basketball ranked No 3 in preseason poll

Although the Ohio State football team has found itself on the outside looking in for the past five weeks, one Buckeye team is finding itself ranked again, as the OSU men’s basketball team will open its season as the No. 3-ranked team in the nation, according to at least one poll. The first ESPN/USA Today coaches’ poll of the 2011-12 season was released Thursday and ranked the Buckeyes behind No. 1 North Carolina and No. 2 Kentucky. Defending national champion Connecticut and Syracuse rounded out the top five. Expectations have run high for OSU since its top two leading scorers from a year ago, sophomore forward Jared Sullinger and senior guard William Buford, opted to bypass the NBA draft following the Buckeyes’ Sweet 16 loss to Kentucky. OSU sophomore guard Aaron Craft, last season’s leader in assists and steals, also returns to a Buckeye team that compiled a 34-3 record the 2010-11 season. Sullinger, Buford and Craft were each preseason selections to the watch list for the John Wooden Award, which goes out to “the outstanding collegiate basketball Player of the Year,” according to the award’s website. Candidates must also have maintained a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher throughout their entire college career, the website says. No. 14 Wisconsin and No. 18 Michigan were the only other Big Ten programs that will open the season ranked in the coaches’ poll. Before they meet the Badgers and Wolverines in conference play, the Buckeyes will will start the year against a trio of games against ranked teams. OSU will battle No. 10 Florida, No. 6 Duke, and No. 13 Kansas on Nov. 15, Nov 29 and Dec. 10, respectively. OSU opens its season up Nov. 11 with a home game against Wright State. read more

This can be a surprise to the opponents.”Carlos also had some positive word for the injured Neymar and believes that the Paris Saint-Germain forward is on the road to greatness.“Neymar is going the right way,” said Carlos.“It’s a pity about this injury but Neymar is doing everything right to be the best in the world.”last_img read more

Air India Offended CoPilot Beats Up Captain Inside Cockpit of JaipurDelhi Flight

first_imgAn “argument” between a commander and his co-pilot of Air India’s Jaipur-Delhi flight on Sunday gave some anxious moments to its passengers, as it came in the wake of the recent Germanwings plane crash, which is attributed to its co-pilot’s mental illness.While an Air India spokesman said it was just “an argument between the two and nothing more,” other sources contradicted it, saying the co-pilot actually “abused and beat up” the commander. The passengers on board flight 611 said that the co-pilot objected to something that the commander asked him to do and turned violent, just before takeoff from Jaipur airport.”The commander told his co-pilot to take down critical take off figures for the flight. This involves writing critical facts like number of passengers on board, take off weight and fuel uptake on a small paper card (trim sheet) that is displayed in front of the pilots for the entire duration of the flight. The co-pilot took offence at this and reportedly beat up the captain,” The Times of India quoted a source as saying.Yet, the commander went ahead and flew to Delhi, though the normal procedure called for reporting the incident to the concerned authorities in Jaipur, which would have led to the cancellation of the flight. The commander reportedly kept the “larger interest of the airline”. The Air India dismissed the whole  incident and said: “The two had an argument. They have settled the issue.”Incidentally, the co-pilot is said to have a record of similar tiffs in the past, according to senior Air India pilots.”Three years back, he asked the commander of a flight to come out of the cockpit, remove the stars on his shirt collar (appulates) and then fought with him. A year later, another commander complained about his ‘rude and unbecoming’ behavior in the cockpit and questioned his state of mind,” a senior commander said.But the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said that they will not be starting a probe into the incident as the plane was parked, IBNLive reported. If the commanders’ allegations against him are true, then DGCA’s decision to not order probe may affect aviation safety.last_img read more
