U17 World Cup: Canada and Austria share honours
But its obvious how motivated he is coming into this season. He wants in on Sochi. “Ive known Cam for a very, very long time,” said Hurricanes captain Eric Staal . “He may say that didnt bother him a lot, but it definitely added some fuel to the fire that was already there.” The way Staal sees it, its a win-win for Ward and for the Hurricanes if he plays well enough to get back into the good graces of Team Canada. That means a lot of Ws for Carolina in the process. And despite not going to Canadas camp last summer, Ward never felt out of the running for a shot at Sochi. “I never looked at it last summer when the camp roster came out that I couldnt make the team anymore,” said Ward. “I looked at it as extra motivation and I know that if I can play like I know I can in the first half of the season, theyll be watching and that Ill be in consideration. Thats my focus. If I make that team, obviously that means the Hurricanes are doing well, too. Thats what Im striving for, thats my goal.” First things first. For Ward, this season is about re-establishing himself and getting back into the swing of things. “For me its about getting the game reps again,” said Ward. “When you include the lockout and then my injury, I was basically sitting for a year.
Pushed on to the back foot for a major part of the opening half, Austria found their first goal through Sascha Horvath in the 28th minute, but Canada came right back with a couple of goals within five minutes to take the lead. Jordan Hamilton got the equaliser in the 53rd minute and Elias Roubos converted from the spot in the 58th minute. Austria fought back and were on level terms a minute after the hour mark, when Nikola Zivotic produced an acrobatic finish following a cross from the right. Until that first goal, Austria had kept the marauding Canadian frontline at bay. Canada made the first fruitful move in the fourth minute when a Marco Bustos free-kick slammed into the Austrian wall and was cleared to safety. Then in the 10th minute it was Bustos again who tested Alexander Schlager. Austria responded a minute later when they pulled off a move from the left, but Petar Gluhakovic only managed to shoot meekly into the waiting hands of Canada goalkeeper and skipper Marco Carducci. Canada continued pressing for an early advantage and came close in the 19th minute, when Kianz Froese had a shot palmed away by goalkeeper Schlager following a long throw-in by Jordan Haynes, and a minute later when the hard-working Hamilton blasted way over after some smart build-up play. Despite the pressure, it was Austria who went in front two minutes from the half-hour mark, as Horwath stole inside the area and looped in an effort into the roof of the net that caught all by surprise. The goal changed the complexion of the match as suddenly Austria began to hold sway and two minutes later a Daniel Ripic effort beat Carducci but crashed against an upright and rebounded back into play. Canada had an opportunity for an equaliser in the 32nd minute when Hanson Boakai advanced unchallenged towards the Austrian goal, but he was dispossessed by a clever tackle from Schlager. Canada trooped out for the second half with better ideas and it was Hamilton who bagged the equaliser in the 53rd minute when he chested inside the area and directed past a sprawled Schlager. They got a second in the next five minutes when referee Slim Jedidi pointed to the spot after captain David Domej had brought down Kianz Froese.
“What he does is he just shows the humanity of who he is as a young black child, and you’re able to see his humanity, his heart, beyond his skin color.” More than simply stories on the streets, this year’s batch of movies also represent African-American family life on the big screen. Oprah Winfrey revealed she was very drawn to the cast of “The Butler” because of the central portrayal of the African-American familydoing typical things, like dropping a son off to college and finishing one another’s sentences. “One of the reasons why I love this film and wanted to be a part of it is the tenderness between the husband and wife, the tenderness and nurturing nature of the middle-class family,” Winfrey said. When it comes to depicting black family life, Robertson said the film industry has been slow to catch up to television, referencing sitcoms like “The Cosby Show” in the 1980s. And some argue that Hollywood still needs to stop putting African-Americans in roles of servitude, like slaves and servants, and start casting them more often as regular characters in mainstream movies. “Critics don’t look at a film and notice that every one of the lead roles is white,” said Ronda Racha Penrice, author of “African-American History For Dummies” and editor at “Uptown” magazine. “We’re taught it’s the norm, and it’s not the norm. We believe that we can have really good films that have majority white casts; why can’t we believe that we can have a majority black, Latino, or Asian cast, and have a good film as well?” However, some point out that the idea of a black renaissance in the film industry can be simplistic, and argue that in Hollywood the most important color isn’t black or white, but green. Filmmaking is a business, and ultimately diverse story lines in mainstream theaters depend on funding and subsequent success at the box office. “I don’t think it’s because there’s any age of enlightenment,” said Alfre Woodard, who is in “12 Years a Slave.” “I think it’s just serendipitous for those individuals that fight to get funding for the stories they want to get told; it just sort of happened that way right now. It will go just as dry as it ever was shortly.” Nonetheless, the resurgence in movies that focus on African-American stories is apparent, with more than a dozen such films opening in the past four years. Even more, like ” Belle ” and ” Get On Up ,” are set for release in 2014. “The commercial and critical success of these films is showing,” Penrice said. “Just like there are audiences for the various ‘Avengers’ movies, there are people who want to see these slices of wider America.” The push for more diversity is coming from within Hollywood as well.
Hollywood director Michael Bay attacked on Hong Kong set of latest ‘Transformers’ movie
sSo you have to go through agencies. It’s as if we were flying here and had to ask Paramount: can we use your film crew?” That “Thula” was a small, crowdfunded, independent production didn’t matter. “To them we’re from LA we’re flying to South Africa,” said Talbot. Biggs notes that while there are strong tax incentives for studio pictures to pick up sticks and shoot in South Africa, the same breaks don’t exist for independent productions. Crowdfunding Lessons The budget for “Thula” came together in what is now the new old fashioned way: crowdfunding. While the team had worked together before on a web series–” Debt Collectors “–but like many indies on YouTube they have not been able to convert YouTube viewers into a large fan base. So when it came time to rally the budget that wasn’t a ready option. What they did have was each other. “One thing that I learned is that when you are doing crowdfunding it’s important to have a crew,” said Bland. “People are much more likely to look over a project when you are posting to social media with a link to your Facebook and Twitter.” Bland says the hardest thing is “trying to figure out ways to make your project stand out beyond the other 20 people who may be doing a crowdfunding campaign at that time on Facebook.” This is a problem that artists of all stripes face. Since many are part of artistic communities a kind of crowdfunding tunnel vision can set in. Everyone you know seems to be asking for cash, to the point where the same $20 is bouncing from project to project, with a little bit being taken off by the crowdfunding platform with each go. Looking to avoid that trap the trio took to IndieGoGo and activated their friends and families, who might not be as connected to artistic circles, to get the cash.
The Hollywood Film Awards Get Ready for Their Close-Up
17, 2013. Two men have been arrested after the American film director, Michael Bay, was allegedly assaulted in Quarry Bay while working on his latest film, Transformers Four as the two men demanding money from the film crew. CAPTION By Associated Press, HONG KONG Hollywood director Michael Bay was attacked and slightly injured Thursday on the set of the fourth installment of the Transformers movie series currently filming in Hong Kong, police said. A Hong Kong police spokeswoman said two brothers surnamed Mak who own a shop near the movie set approached Bay and demanded 100,000 Hong Kong dollars ($13,000). Looking for things to do? Select one or more criteria to search Kid-friendly Get ideas When Bay refused to pay, they assaulted him, she said. The brothers also allegedly assaulted three police officers who were called to the set. The spokeswoman said Bay suffered a minor injury to his face but declined medical treatment. She spoke on customary condition of anonymity. The two men, aged 27 and 28, were arrested and face charges of blackmail, assault and assaulting police officers, she said. Paramount Pictures gave a somewhat different account of the incident, which it said occurred on the films first day of production in Hong Kong. It said in a statement that a man allegedly under the influence of a narcotic substance rushed onto the set wielding an air conditioning unit and swung it at Bays head. It said Bay ducked and wrestled the air conditioning unit away from the man.
And he underscores that “the goal for future years is to broadcast” the gala that currently serves as something of an informal curtain-raiser for four months of nonstop Oscar campaigning. DCP execs declined to discuss their involvement in this year’s show. But, according to de Abreu, RAC Clark, Dick Clark’s son, has stepped in as producer, bringing with him a production staff that is overseeing everything from the menu to the set. EXCLUSIVE: ‘American Hustle’ Costume, Production Design to Be Honored at Hollywood Film Awards “They have been involved in the selection process; they are part of our advisory committee,” de Abreu says of DCP’s role in choosing this year’s honorees. “Plus, they are supporting us with assets they have put in place for everything from marketing to production values. The show will be a better show because they have the know-how.” The Hollywood Film Festival Aims to Live Up to Its Name Originally, Carlos de Arbreu created the Hollywood Film Awards as a companion event to the Hollywood Film Festival. But though he successfully promoted the self-congratulatory awards into a regular slot on the movie awards calendar, the festival itself has had a tougher time gaining traction. Sandwiched as it is between September’s Toronto Film Festival and January’s Sundance — not to mention June’s Los Angeles Film Festival and AFI Fest, which kicks off Nov. 7 — the HFF has found carving out an identity for itself a challenge. This year, the fest, which now is run entirely separately from the Hollywood Film Awards, is trying a new tack. De Abreu has recruited Jon Fitzgerald, a seasoned festival hand and one of the co-founders of Sundance alternative Slamdance, to serve as executive director of the fest’s 17th edition, which will take over three auditoriums at the ArcLight in Hollywood beginning Oct. 18 to screen 25 films over three days. EXCLUSIVE: Coldplay to Receive Honor for ‘Hunger Games’ Song at Hollywood Film Awards “We’re more of a boutique festival,” says Fitzgerald, downplaying the challenge of competing with the biggies. “One concept we decided to focus on is celebrating Hollywood.

It was 3-weeks-old. After zookeepers couldn’t spot the rare Sumatran tiger in its den early on Oct. 12, they found the cub beside a nearby pool where it had drowned, London Zoo said in a statement. “It’s very, very sad, we’re just heart broken by the whole situation,” London Zoo press officer Nicola Kelly said. “The zookeepers were so happy to have the cub and then devastated by this terrible accident.” Like the newborn panda at the Smithsonian National Zoo, the tiger cub was too young for zookeepers to name it. They also hadn’t identified the tiger’s gender.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gets ready to answer questions from a Chatham House audience, on Oct. 11, 2013, in London. (Peter Macdiarmid/Getty Images) Reported by ABC News Gemma Perlin: LONDON Hillary Clinton, in London last Friday to pick up a prize in recognition of her significant and impressive contribution to international diplomacy, was busted by a London traffic cop for an illegally parked Mercedes. Despite the raised voices of Clintons bodyguards, the parking police remained unfazed and would not retract the ticket, reported the Daily Telegraph. Daniel Astaire, a councillor for the borough that Clinton parked in, told ABC News that Clinton would receive no special treatment. The former U.S. secretary of state was parked for nearly 45 minutes without paying. Im sure she will understand that we have to be fair to everyone, regardless of their status on the world stage. Clinton was fined $128, but if she pays the ticket within 14 days, it will be knocked down to $64. The American Embassy in London, which owes $12.5 million in its own parking fines, according to figures from Foreign Secretary William Hague,would not comment on Clintons parking ticket, explaining that she was now a private citizen. Hillary will know as a former diplomat, one must get all their facts together, look for evidence, make an appeal quickly and perceive, Barrie Segal, a U.K. parking ticket expert, told ABC News.If that fails, I am happy to give her mobile number and chat about it.
Busted by London Traffic Cop, Hillary Clinton Gets No Special Treatment
View gallery A man walks past the London Stock Exchange, in central London, on September 22, 2011 (AFP Photo/Facundo Arrizabalaga) London (AFP) – London shares edged higher on Thursday as BSkyB surged after the satellite television broadcaster’s results for its latest quarter. The benchmark FTSE 100 index added 4.57 points or 0.07 percent to close at 6,576.16 points. “Global markets were lifeless today as the much expected agreement between officials in the US to avoid a default failed to ignite much optimism in equities,” said Shavaz Dhalla, a financial trader at Spreadex.” “Furthermore, since most investors were expecting a deal to be reached, albeit earlier then yesterday, then there really isnat much of an excuse to be diving back into equities,” Dhalla said. However, BSkyB shares soared 7.06 percent to 940 pence as the company 39-percent owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp announced higher revenues and expressed confidence about the rest of the year. Profits after taxation fell almost 12 percent to A193 million, hit by heavy investment in new services and a more expensive broadcasting deal to screen English Premier League football matches. But revenues grew 7 percent to A1.843 billion in its first quarter to end-September, aided by swelling subscriber numbers. “While the consumer environment remains challenging, we are well placed as we execute a strong set of plans for the rest of the year,” said chief executive Jeremy Darroch. Terrestrial broadcaster ITV benefitted from BSkyB’s positive comments, putting on 2.63 percent to 195.10 pence. Brewer SABMiller climbed 4.18 percent to 3,167 pence and budget airline easyJet gained 3.83 percent to 1,328 pence. Engineering group Weir led the fallers, dropping 2.99 percent to 2,268 pence, while building supplies distributor CRH shed 2.59 percent to 1,539 pence and inspection and verification specialist Intertek lost 2.55 percent to 3,210 pence. On the currency markets, the pound strengthened to $1.6156 at 5:26 pm from $1.5900 on Wednesday evening and to 1.1825 euros from 1.1794 euros the night before. Investment & Company Information
Hotel Near London’s ExCeL Toasts the 50th Anniversary of “Doctor Who”
Click here for high-resolution version LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwired – Oct 17, 2013) – For 50 years, audiences have accompanied The Doctor on his adventures through time and space. Now the moment has arrived to reflect on the characters, villains, events and backstage stories that have made this show a cultural icon. As people flock to the official, sold-out event at London’s ExCeL venue from 22 to 24 November 2013, the London Marriott Hotel West India Quay will be raising its own glass to the show that’s inspired spin-offs, fan clubs and, at this hotel at least, three new specialty cocktails. In an appropriate juxtaposition of heroes and villains, the cocktails are named for The Doctor’s trusty sonic screwdriver and his arch-enemies, the Daleks. Guests of this London hotel near ExCeL , for example, can channel their inner Doctors when they sip the Laser Screwdriver’s powerful mix of vodka, Cointreau, Passoa and passion-fruit juice, all of which is poured over a dollop of passion fruit-and-mango sorbet in a martini glass. The Sonic Screwdriver adds a touch of bubbly with vodka, Orange Curacao, a dash of grenadine and a topper of Champagne, all served in a Champagne flute and garnished with a playful twist of orange. The Dalekquiri, meanwhile, nods to The Doctor’s worst enemies, the Daleks, and accordingly caters to a more decadent taste profile with vodka, Kahlua, Bailey’s Irish Cream with a Hint of Mint Chocolate, chocolate liqueur and banana served, appropriately, within a hurricane glass. Sipping any one of these specialty cocktails may not turn guests into The Doctor or his companion, but they will afford them the opportunity to experience one of the finest restaurants overlooking Canary Wharf . Visitors can choose to relax in the newly refurbished Lobby Bar, or book a table at Manhattan Grill, an upscale steakhouse where stylishly inviting decor meets painstakingly prepared steaks and other entree options like linguine and salmon. This Canary Wharf restaurant also offers private dining for groups of 10 to 40, an exciting option for not just “Doctor Who” fans looking to gather at a hotel near London’s ExCeL after the event, but for anyone interested in booking an exclusive culinary experience. While “Doctor Who” will live to save another day in the next season, guests can only taste these specialty cocktails for the duration of the anniversary event. After then, those who missed the opportunity will need their own TARDIS to try them. About London Marriott Hotel West India Quay With 279 guest rooms, 22 suites, 20 meeting rooms and four concierge levels, the eight-floor London Marriott Hotel West India Quay is as impressive in its statistics as it is in its visual splendour.
USA vs. Panama: Players to Watch at the World Cup
The event, which was hosted by Beat the Streets in New York City, featured wrestlers from the United States, Iran and Russia. It was a headline competition during World Wrestling Month, receiving worldwide media coverage as part of the Keep Olympic Wrestling effort. Over $1 million was raised for youth wrestling activities at the Beat the Streets Gala held alongside the event. The two dual meets were broadcast live nationally by NBC Sports Network and Universal Sports Network. The other two nominees are the Italian Federation of Sport Climbing, which is using climbing programs to spur economic development in Africa, and the Oceania Football Confederation, which created the “Just Play” program for 6-12 year old youth in 11 Pacific countries. “USA Wrestling is truly honored to be selected as a finalist for the Sport Organization of the Year as part of the prestigious Peace and Sport Awards program. The Rumble On The Rails event is an example of the kind of international cooperation and friendship which is fostered through wrestling. We wish to recognize the Russian and Iranian wrestling federations for partnering with USA Wrestling at this historic competition. Thanks also go out to Beat the Streets New York, and all within the American wrestling family, who worked so hard to make this a major success,” said Rich Bender, USA Wrestling Executive Director. On its website, Peace and Sport posted the following information on why USA Wrestling was chosen as a finalist for this prestigious award: USA Wrestling “Rumble on the Rails” is a leading example of different countries working together to protect a threatened sporting discipline. While diplomatic relations between their respective governments remain taut, the wrestling federations of the USA, Iran and Russia came together to participate in “Rumble on the Rails,” a wrestling competition held in New York in May 2013. Their cooperation demonstrates the power of sport to unite people. The Peace and Sport Awards Ceremony is held each year during the Gala Evening of the Peace and Sport International Forum.

Canada PM Heads to Brussels to Conclude EU Deal
The Czech Republic, which had threatened to block the free trade deal over the visa issue, welcomed the announcement. Canada reimposed visa requirements for Czech citizens in 2007 because of concerns over an excessive number of asylum seekers. Canada’s Ambassador to Prague, Otto, Jelinek, said his government wants to re-establish visa-free status “in the earliest possible term.” EU trade spokesman John Clancy said in an e-mail that the European Union and Canada hope to conclude the free trade deal in the “coming days.” Harper posted on his official Twitter account that Canada will “soon” complete negotiations. His office said he will meet with the president of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso. Yves Leduc, director of international trade for the Dairy Farmers of Canada, said he’s been told by a Canadian government official that an agreement in principle has been reached and that the European Union’s 28 members and Canada’s 10 provinces have to approve it. Canada has agreed to permit a doubling of the EU quota on cheese exports to Canada in exchange for greater access for Canadian beef and pork producers. Leduc said Canada’s cheese industry is angry because it threatens the fine cheese market in Canada. “For the dairy farmers of Canada this is a deal that is unacceptable. We’re more than disappointed,” Leduc said. “It will allow significant access of high quality or fine cheeses into Canada, a segment that is supplied by the smaller or medium size cheese factories in Canada.” Harper has said that a free trade deal between his country and the European Union could help the EU establish a beachhead as the bloc embark on separate free trade talks with the U.S. If a U.S.-EU trade deal is reached, it could be the world’s largest free trade pact. Canada hopes to become less reliant on the U.S., the country’s largest trading partner. Canada’s finance minister has said despite Europe’s struggles, Canada remains very interested because the EU is still the largest market in the world in terms of the size of its middle class.

Protesters are reportedly angry about the government and shale gas companies moving forward with work in the area. “The more the government ignores the situation, the greater the potential for this to escalate,” said T.J. Burke, a lawyer for the Elsipogtog First Nation. Police said they were investigating suspected explosive devices at the scene. Molotov cocktails were thrown, they said. Those arrested were detained for various offenses, including firearms offenses, uttering threats, intimidation, mischief and refusing to abide by a court injunction on Route 134.
Credit: Reuters/Fabrice Coffrini/Pool MOSCOW | Thu Oct 17, 2013 1:29pm EDT MOSCOW (Reuters) – International talks this week on Iran’s nuclear program were “quite promising” and Tehran’s new proposals could produce progress toward ending the standoff between global powers and the Islamic state, Russia said on Thursday. “I would not understate the importance of this round,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said of Iran’s talks in Geneva on Tuesday and Wednesday with Russia, the United States, China, Britain, France and Germany. “In our view, although it was very tough, it was quite, quite promising,” Lukashevich said at a weekly briefing. Iran’s new proposals “could move the negotiating process forward, and are evidence of the Iranian side’s intention to … resolve the issues that are of concern to the six powers,” he said. He gave no details of the proposals. Lukashevich sounded more upbeat than Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, the Russian negotiator at the talks in Geneva, who said on Wednesday that the sides were far apart and there was no guarantee of further progress. Russia, which built Iran’s first nuclear power plant and sells Iran weapons, has in the past been more positive than the West about Iran’s attitude toward the negotiations and less suspicious that it could be seeking nuclear weapons capability. The United States on Wednesday described two days of nuclear negotiations with Iran as the most serious and candid to date after Western diplomats said Tehran hinted it was ready to scale back sensitive atomic activities to secure urgent sanctions relief.

Bank of America Bank of America Merrill Lynch is advising clients to consider investing in Russias giant gas exporter, Gazprom Gazprom . Strong demand for Russian gas in Europe, and the potential for a deal to pipe gas to China underpins what the investment bank regards as a compelling valuation of Gazprom which is said to be trading on a 2014 price-to-earnings ratio of just 3.4 a fraction of Exxon Mobil Exxon Mobil s PE of 10.9. Enticing as that value gap might look it reflects the risk associated with buying American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) in a company which is 50.1% owned by the Russian Government which has a track record of sometimes erratic behavior and mistreatment of foreign investors. Despite question marks over the country and its government Merrill Lynch has a price target for Gazprom ADRs of $10.50, roughly $1 higher than their recent price of $9.48. Captive Europe What attracts the banks analysts is Gazproms stranglehold on European gas consumption which had been expected to fade, but now looks like being a longer-term factor. Our commodity team believes that there is little alternative to Russian gas in Europe for the near future, Merrill Lynch told clients in a note circulated to clients two days ago. This means that Gazproms volumes should remain strong and prices will stay high for Russian gas in Europe for longer than we initially anticipated. We now expect that higher exports into Europe will be sustainable for most of 2014 and 2015 and increase our earnings estimates (for Gazprom) by 5% to 7% and our price objective to $10.50. Ranked as Russias biggest business, Gazprom is also the worlds biggest producer of natural gas, sitting on the worlds biggest petroleum reserves. Supporting the Merrill Lynch investment thesis is a belief that Europe has worked itself into a corner in terms of energy supplies. Asian demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) is strong and growing with Japans slow re-start of its nuclear sector requiring extra LNG deliveries which might have otherwise have made their way to Europe. In effect, Russia and Gazprom has come to Europes rescue because of declining alternative gas supplies from sources such as Algeria and Libya, and declining domestic production in most European countries, except Norway. China Deal A wild card in the Gazprom pack is a potential deal to start selling gas to China which Merrill Lynch believes could materialize towards the end of the year. If the China opportunity opens up it will require an investment estimated at $45 billion with first gas delivered in 2018.
Russia Stocks Slump Most in Emerging Markets as Rally Overdone
OAO Severstal, Russia s second-largest steelmaker, dropped 1.2 percent to 295 rubles. OAO Gazprom, the natural-gas export monopoly, declined 1.4 percent to 155.75 rubles. OAO Surgutneftegas, a Russian oil producer, tumbled 2.4 percent. The 14-day relative strength index on the Micex was at 70.3 yesterday, above the level of 70 that suggests to some analysts a security has been overbought and is poised for a decline. U.S. President Barack Obama signed into law a measure ending the 16-day U.S. government shutdown and extending the nations borrowing authority until early next year. The Micex advanced 3.4 percent this month amid optimism a deal would be struck. Crude fell 0.6 percent to $101.73 a barrel in New York . Many investors expected the U.S. government to come to a resolution and hence were buying riskier assets, like Russia, Vadim Bit-Avragim, who helps manage about $4.4 billion at Kapital Asset Management in Moscow, said by phone. And once the decision was made, many decided to fix profits after the rally. At the same time, the U.S. agreement will have to be revisited soon, which creates uncertainty.
Russia calls Sochi ready for Winter Olympics
We had nothing, the mayor said. We constructed everything from scratch. These Olympics, costing an estimated $51 billion, are the most expensive ever . The London 2012 Summer Games were estimated at near $19 billion and Beijings 2008 Winter Olympics at about $43 billion. Activists complain the environment has paid the price. Construction waste has been dumped on hillsides, said Vladimir Kimayev, a leader of Environmental Watch in Sochi, increasing the threat of landslides and sending pollutants into the Mzymta River. And a promenade along the Black Sea was built too close to the water, he said, asserting the beach was now vulnerable to erosion and the promenade might well be washed away. That, said Mayor Pakhomov, was impossible. The project was approved by state experts, he said. If there were violations it wouldnt have been approved. In 2008, after extensive disputes with Russian Olympic authorities, environmental groups had managed to persuade Putin, who was prime minister at the time, to move the bobsled track and mountain Olympic village to a less damaging location. A period of close cooperation followed. That ended in early 2010. We had been having monthly meetings and agreed to many ways in which things could be done better, said Igor Chestin, chief executive of WWF-Russia, part of the World Wide Fund for Nature global network.
In early June 2012, Lohan crashed a rented porsche into the back of a dump truck. Though police are still investigating, they cleared the actress of being intoxicated. Demi Lovato Demi Lovato’s career began at the age of 7, when she was cast alongside BFF Selena Gomez on “Barney & Friends.” In 2007, she hit it big with the Disney Channel original movie “Camp Rock” starring opposite the Jonas Brothers. The success of the movie led to a staring role as Sonny on the Disney show “Sonny With a Chance.” Demi Lovato Things publicly took a turn for the worse for Demi Lovato in October 2010, when she underwent treatment for a “physical and emotional issue.” The decision to head to rehab was prompted by a physical altercation with one of the Jonas Brothers’ backup dancers, who told the Disney star’s management about some of Lovato’s dangerous behavior. After three months of treatment, Demi returned to the spotlight and opened up about her battles with bulimia and cutting, and being diagnosed as bipolar. Lovato has been extremely open about her issues, and admitted she was abusing drugs as a way to self-medicate. In an MTV documentary, the singer continued to share her struggle with fans and admitted she’s still in process of recovery. Mitchel Musso Mitchel Musso made his film debut in the 2004 movie “Secondhand Lions,” and got his big break as Oliver Oken on Disney’s “Hannah Montana,” later voicing Jeremy Johnson on “Phineas and Ferb.” Mitchel Musso Former “Hannah Montana” star Mitchel Musso was arrested on October 16, 2011, and charged with two counts of drunk driving. The 20-year-old actor, who currently stars on Disney’s “Pair of Kings” and lends his voice to the Disney cartoon series “Phineas and Ferb,” was pulled over after he failed to slow down for police officers who were directing traffic. When given a breathalyzer test Musso blew well above the 0.08 percent BAC limit. If convicted on both counts, Musso faces a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. But as TMZ notes, first-time DUI offenders in LA County aren’t sentenced to jail time unless there are aggravating circumstances, which in this case there are not.
Hollywood, Big Tech on Collision Course Over Who Should Police the Internet
of Commerce hearing on a long-in-the-works green paper on proposed copyright policy for the digital age. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which is organizing the hearing and has been operating on fee reserves to stay open, had aimed for an Oct. 30 hearing but moved it to Dec. 12 to avoid complications from the shutdown. Among the most contentious of issues is the safe harbor provision of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act , which was crafted in 1998, when Google was still in its infancy and social media meant throwing a party to watch the Seinfeld finale. The safe harbor provision allows Internet providers, search engines and other tech firms to escape liability when users post pirated content on their platforms, provided such content is promptly removed when providers get a takedown notice, or if they are otherwise warned by some kind of red flag that indicates infringing activity. This safe harbor provision is, generally speaking, something Internet providers and search engines dont want lawmakers to touch. While providers may complain that they are inundated by takedown requests Google says it receives more than a million each week to put the provision on the table risks ending up with something that saddles Internet sites with additional liability. In fact, when the green paper was unveiled, Michael Beckerman, president and CEO of the Internet Assn., a trade group formed in 2012 that includes Google, Facebook and Amazon among its members, said existing law works very well. In a statement to Variety, he said that the DMCA continues to fulfill its intended purpose of facilitating the growth and development of the Internet and the Web. In contrast, Hollywood and lobbying orgs representing other content creators complain that the safe harbor provision forces them into playing endless whacka-mole; even after enlisting their own monitoring services to find infringing content and send out takedown notices, they say piracy is still growing. While Beckerman warned that the green paper would be used by some interest groups as a call for new laws addressing online infringement, that prospect seems unlikely, not just because of the government shutdown, but because of skittishness among lawmakers to start anything like the unprecedented protest that sidelined the last major piece of antipiracy legislation, the Stop Online Piracy Act. House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., has launched a series of hearings with an eye toward revising copyright laws, but that process could take years, and undoubtedly would be contentious when and if it comes to revisiting the DMCA. The authors of the green paper recognized this, and have proposed that rather than pursue legislation, the tech and content industries should come up with their own set of best practices for identifying takedown notices.

(Photo: Belgian Government) Mohamed Abdi Hassan was charged with hijacking a Belgian ship He was baited with a promise of a movie about piracy Prosecutor: Hassan is one of the most ‘important and infamous’ pirates SHARE 60 CONNECT 28 TWEET 2 COMMENTEMAILMORE BRUSSELS (AP) The alleged pirate kingpin thought he was going work in the movies. Instead he landed in jail. In a sting operation worthy of Hollywood, Mohamed Abdi Hassan was lured from Somalia to Belgium with promises of work on a documentary about high-seas crime that would “mirror his life as a pirate,” federal prosecutor Johan Delmulle said Monday. But rather than being behind the camera as an expert adviser, Abdi Hassan ended up behind bars, nabbed as he landed Saturday at Brussels airport. “(He’s) one of the most important and infamous kingpin pirate leaders, responsible for the hijacking of dozens of commercial vessels from 2008 to 2013,” Delmulle said. Abdi Hassan whose nickname, Afweyne, means “Big Mouth” was charged with hijacking the Belgian dredger Pompei and kidnapping its nine-member crew in 2009, Delmulle said. The Pompei’s crew was released after 10 weeks in captivity when the ship’s owner paid a reported $3 million ransom. Belgium caught two pirates involved in the hijacking, convicted them and sentenced them to nine and 10 years in prison. But prosecutors still wanted the ringleaders. “Too often, these people remain beyond reach while they let others do the dirty work,” Delmulle told reporters. Malaysian authorities almost captured the reclusive Adbi Hassan in April 2012, but a document from the Somali transitional government let him slip back home, according to a U.N.

(KTLA-TV Channel 5 / October 16, 2013) By Robert J. Lopez October 16, 2013, 9:34 p.m. A man died after a fire broke out Wednesday night in a North Hollywood home. Flames were visible after firefighters arrived at the home in the 6900 block of Agnes Avenue , the Los Angeles Fire Department said. Firefighters sprayed water on the blaze and began searching the home after a woman outside said that someone was inside the structure. It took 15 minutes for 44 firefighters to knock down the blaze, a department spokesman said. The victim was found dead. His age was not immediately known. The woman was taken to a hospital for possible smoke exposure. ALSO:
