We chatted with screenwriter Megan Weaver about her script “The Starfish” and some insights for pitching your screenplay.If you’re an aspiring screenwriter (or, heck, just a filmmaker), I’d highly recommend checking out the Austin Film Festival. The Austin Film Festival (AFF) is well-known as the “writer’s film festival,” and it showcases some of the strongest scripts recently to hit the screen — or even still in pre-production. (You can read more of PremiumBeat’s Austin Film Festival coverage here.)At AFF, it’s not hard to to run into an aspiring screenwriter. With full slates of panels and workshops during the day, and networking events and mixers at nights (to go along with dozens of screenings), you’re always within earshot of a conversation about character arcs or the nuances of dialogue.One up-and-coming screenwriter (as well as a director and playwright) whom we ran into was the talented Megan Weaver, whose project, The Starfish, was a semi-finalist in the Drama and Enderby category at AFF. Weaver had these insights to share about her festival experience and how she was able to break her feature down into a successful 90-second pitch for the AFF Pitch Competition.PremiumBeat: How did you get into screenwriting?Megan Weaver: I’m a theater director and playwright, and I do a lot of experimental devised work. When the seeds of my screenplay The Starfish first started sprouting in my mind, I thought maybe it was the beginnings of another original theater piece. But as I explored it further, it revealed itself to me as a realist coming-of-age drama-comedy. With that, I realized it should be a film. So I started teaching myself the fundamentals of screenwriting, and started outlining . . . and a year and a half later, here I am!Photo by Tyler Eglen (via Megan Weaver).PB: Tell us a little bit about your script.MW: The Starfish is a teen coming-of-age drama romp about two queer teenagers vying for the same leadership position at an evangelical Quaker camp. Think Love, Simon meets Saved! My protagonist, Vi, is a transgender boy who’s only recently come out to himself and outwardly still looks like the soulful, androgynous girl his friends think they know. Like a starfish, it’s not possible to tell his gender from the outside. When he’s nominated to be the camp’s next youth leader, he’s thrust into the crosshairs of Mallory, a sanctimonious homeschooler who desperately wants the position for herself. Mallory believes Vi is a lesbian, and the church has a clear policy against gays in leadership. Mal would know — she’s in love with a fellow female camper. When the youth choose Vi, Mallory fires off a chain reaction that causes him to be wrongly outed as gay. Vi is stripped of the position and forced to choose between coming out as trans before he’s ready, or losing the only spiritual home he’s ever had. But in a mud-slinging Capture-the-Flag climax, he and Mallory reach a surprise alliance that gives him the courage to embrace his truth without explanation and leave the church for good. When he does, he discovers that just as a starfish can drop a limb only to have it regenerate, sometimes breaking away is the only way to be born again.PB: How did you find out about the Austin Film Festival?MW: I live in Austin, so I was aware of the festival before I wrote my own screenplay. After I finished my first draft, I joined a local writer’s group, and all they could talk about was how great the festival was for emerging/aspiring writers. That was in November 2017, and I set my sights then on attending in 2018.PB: Tell us about your pitch submission process.MW: I bought the pitch ticket on a whim, feeling like if my script didn’t progress through the screenwriting competition, this would be another opportunity to give it some exposure. I started writing the pitch about three weeks before the festival, because I knew with a 90-second limit every word would count, and I wanted plenty of revision time. So by the time my pitch day rolled around, I had really internalized what I wanted to say. I also sat in on a pitch session the day before mine to see what it was like, and I took notes on the strongest pitches and the judges’ feedback. That helped me refine my final version, so by the time I got up there I felt super prepared and clear on how best to present my work.Image via Megan Weaver.PB: Do you have any advice about how you were able to condense your story into the 90-seconds needed for the pitch competition?MW: The best pitches I listened to had three major things in common: they emphasized the central human relationship at the heart of their story, they included a couple major plot twists that genuinely surprised me, and they ended with a strong final phrase that evoked both the title and thematic heart. It’s basic storytelling — get me emotionally invested in your characters, tell me their goal or mission, throw a big obstacle or two in their way that cause them to transform and grow, and then button it up nice and tight. So I went back to my pitch and mapped out if I had those basic ingredients, cutting anything that was superfluous and highlighting those key components. It streamlined it immediately, and it came out to almost exactly 90 seconds.PB: How was the competition at AFF? Did you notice any trends from the other film pitches?MW: The best pitches made me feel something. And I think the best pitchers were comfortable, un-rushed, and didn’t feel too performative. No one likes to feel like they’re being sold to. Just tell a great story, and be practiced and confident in the telling. The people who could do that in 90 seconds, taking us on a surprising journey from start to finish and either making us laugh or (at least inwardly want to) cry, to me, invoked the most confidence that their scripts would be equally sophisticated and worth a read.PB: What’s next for your project?MW: I’d love to make a short film out of a key scene early in the feature, in which Vi is trying to figure out how to change clothes in the girls’ cabin. He’s no longer comfortable being seen naked by his girlfriends who are lounging all around him, gossiping freely about sex and boys. He ends up hiding in his bunk bed to change, and the cramped awkwardness of trying to change in that tiny space contrasts with the feminine freedom of the girls. But a new girl, Olivia, picks up on Vi’s discomfort and befriends him after lights out, planting the seeds of a love story that’s central to the feature. Ultimately I’d like to direct the feature, and this short would be a calling card for that vision.Image by Matthew Ragan (via Megan Weaver).PB: Do you have any advice for aspiring screenwriters or filmmakers that you’d like to share from your AFF experience?MW: I think pitching is an amazing tool for getting at the heart of your story. Especially with that 90-second constraint. I recommend it to anyone as a core part of the writing process. Even though my script is finished and even placed in the screenwriting competition, pitching it revealed its strengths and weaknesses in a new way, and I’m making rewrites based on those discoveries.Also, I know a lot of writers are nervous about attending the conference alone, especially the social events. But AFF people are sooo friendly, and there are dozens of other aspiring writers who can share the wisdom of their experiences. I made several great new friends, and I’m a true introvert. So embrace the butterflies and show up. It’s absolutely worth it.Cover image by Daniel Cariño (via Megan Weaver).For more information, you can follow Megan Weaver on her page here, and her film project on its page here.

Armed with laptops and smartphones, the criminals virtually set up call centres. Usually posing as bank representatives, they make cold calls to unsuspecting account holders and manage to extract personal details from them on various pretexts, sometimes even promising financial rewards.Also Read The cyber con ‘artists’ of Jharkhand’s Jamtara district All such accused have been booked under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the relevant provisions of the Information Technology Act. While the local police have arrested more than 100 such offenders and even set up a cyber crime division for a constant watch on suspects, investigating agencies from 22 States are also on the lookout for them. In Madhya Pradesh’s Bhilai itself, more than 700 people have been cheated by Jamtara-based gangs. The information is used to access the accounts for illegal online transfer of money. The cheaters also often use Voice over IP (VoIP) to make calls, which makes it difficult for the police to either monitor or trace them.The suspects are said to have learnt the tricks of the trade while working in mobile phone shops and call-centres across the country. The criminals use e-wallets with money illegally withdrawn from accounts transferred to these e-wallets and then used for making online purchases and payments. E-wallets are opened using mobile phone numbers procured on the basis of fake or fraudulently arranged identification papers.The vast amounts obtained as a result of cyber crime in rural and remote Jamtara has seen a spurt in palatial houses and high end vehicles in the area. Accused Mondal has three houses worth over ₹85 lakh apart from an SUV and three bikes. It is alleged that Yadav has amassed illegal wealth of over ₹50 lakh in the past five years. Cyber crime hubs of Jharkhand’s Jamtara district The Enforcement Directorate has registered a money laundering case against groups operating from Jamtara in Jharkhand, said to be one of the biggest hubs of cyber crime in the country. Those running the racket are alleged to have cheated thousands of people across the country.The agency’s main focus is on the cyber offences committed allegedly by a group led by Santosh Yadav, Jugal Mondal and Pradeep Kumar Mondal. While the police have lodged FIRs against the masterminds, the Directorate aims to attach the proceeds of crime under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).An FIR registered against Mr. Jugal Mondal and his five associates at the Narayanpur police station in Jamtara alleges that he “is an active cyber criminal and has no legitimate source of income”. The group cheat people through a modus operandi commonly known as “vishing” or voice “phishing”.
Swinging into action a day after Mail Today reported the harrowing experience of Indian para swimmers while competing in Berlin, Sports Minister Vijay Goel has sought a report from Paralympic Committee of India (PCI) within ten days.Goel promised to investigate the matter as to how the sanctioned government funds did not reach the para swimmers on time.Mail Today on Tuesday reported that visibly challenged swimmer Kanchanmala Pande qualified for the World Swimming Championships on the back of an ill-fated experience of having to bear expenses despite having no money and having to pay for accommodation and food. She became the only female swimmer from India to qualify for the World Para Swimming Championships this year.India’s top sportspersons from Abhinav Bindra to Mahesh Bhupathi reacted with shock on knowing about the incident and took to Twitter to voice their disgust, asking the authorities to see that such incidents are not repeated.Goel, however, cleared the air in a statement that the funds were released to PCI on June 22 on behalf of the Sports Ministry.”The Ministry through SAI released Rs 3.21 Lakh as 75 per cent of dues as advance payment to Para Olympic Committee of India in time and arranged tickets etc. This amount was transferred in the account of PCI on June 22, 2017. Since the amount was transferred to the account of PCI, the players should not have been put to any hardship,” the ministry said in a statement.’VERY UNFORTUNATE'”In the wake of the news reports Vijay Goel also spoke to the CEO, PCI. They have informed him that for some reasons the money was not further transferred by PCI to the team members. The minister found this as very unfortunate and has ordered that a report from the PCI be sought in the matter within ten days,” it added.advertisementAccording to a report, PCI vice president Gurusharan Singh has stated that “the sanctioned amount from SAI came five days before the departure of the athletes but “we could not withdraw the money as Justice (Retd) Kailash Gambhir, Chairman of Committee, was not available to clear the funds.”Interestingly, a SAI official confirmed Mail Today that the fund was in fact transferred to PCI’s bank account on June 22 – a good ten days prior to the event and is shocked with the federation’s denial.”As per the policy, SAI has transferred 75 per cent of the fund allocated for the event to the PCI account on June 22. We also have a receipt for the same. The remaining 25 per cent will be settled after the event, as per our norms. We have our own travel agency from where we book tickets for the athletes so that was already sought. I don’t understand why PCI is blaming us for not sending the money on time,” said the official on condition of anonymity.Mail Today has a copy of the sanction letter sent by SAI to PCI.HISTORY OF CONTROVERSIESThe national governing body is no stranger to controversies, been suspended for almost a year between 2015 to 2016 due to internal conflicts.The ban was temporarily lifted by International Paralympic Committee (IPC) on May 31 last year, clearing way for para athletes to participate in Rio Paralympics.IPC had also made it clear that the suspension can be reimposed if PCI fails to implement the reforms outlined by world governing body.During her troublesome trip to Europe, Kanchanmala, 26, beat the qualifying mark in 100m Freestyle (1:34:00), 100m Backstroke (1:41:00), 100m Breaststroke (2:01:00) and 200m Individual Medley (3:03:00), in which she also picked up a silver medal.Kanchan and her escort Jaimala Pande were part of the Berlin contingent that was granted sponsorship by the government. The PCI failed to provide her the money stating that SAI didn’t sanction the fund on time.OUTRAGEKanchan’s story sparked a nationwide outrage, with Indian Olympic gold medallist shooter Abhinav Bindra leading the outcry.”This is UNACCEPTABLE. People must be held accountable. @VijayGoelBJP @narendramodi. A sports legislation which mandates all federations to professionalise is the only way ahead for Indian sport,” tweeted Bindra.”Against all Odds has been every sportspersons story in India at some level but this is an all time low. #shameful #disgrace,” contemplated India’s Davis Cup captain Mahesh Bhupathi.IPC vice president Rajesh Tomar also voiced his concerns, calling it an unfortunate incident. “I was shocked to read about it. We as part of the IPC are also looking at the betterment of athletes. It is very unfortunate that such a thing has happened. Hope things get better for us in the future,” he said.advertisementALSO READ | Ignored by authorities, Indian para-athlete forced to beg, borrow money in Berlin ALSO WATCH | The road ahead for Indian sports and Para athletes

Manchester United Mourinho: I have no idea when Pogba will be back for Man United Goal Last updated 2 years ago 07:53 10/30/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Getty Manchester United Paul Pogba Manchester United v Benfica Benfica UEFA Champions League The France international has missed more than a month with an injury, and his manager still does not know when he will be fit again Jose Mourinho angrily deflected questions about injured Paul Pogba, insisting he has “no idea” when the midfielder will be available for Manchester United. The Red Devils were dealt a blow in September when their French star pulled a hamstring in a Champions League clash against Basel.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player While Pogba has been as active as usual on social media in that interim, there has been little word on when he can return for his club. And Mourinho appears to be getting tired of that line of questioning, if his reaction on Saturday was any indication. “I have no idea [when he will return],” the manager snapped when the Pogba question was asked after a 1-0 win over Tottenham.”Honestly. I am not in control of his recovery process. He is not training with me. He is on individual work and when a player is on individual work I cannot predict.“I would expect Marcos Rojo to return after the international break because he is training with me. But with Paul I have no idea.“[Without Pogba] We won every match except one. Two? Well, two, so not bad.”The Special One also brushed off the jeers that were heard when he substituted Marcus Rashford for Anthony Martial, who proved United’s match-winner. “They pay the ticket they can do what they want. They can boo a player that doesn’t deserve to be booed, they can boo a player who is working like an animal, even though the game is not going in his direction,” he said.”They can boo – they pay their tickets, they can boo the manager.”The Red Devils will be back in action on Tuesday, when they host Benfica at Old Trafford.
Sports, culture and recreation will soon have a new home in Bridgewater thanks to the construction of the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre. MLA Gary Ramey, on behalf of Health and Wellness Minister Maureen MacDonald and MP Gerald Keddy today, Aug. 25, broke ground on the centre. The centre will provide families in Lunenburg County with access to high-quality community facilities. “Investing in this facility is an investment into the health and well-being of the residents of Lunenburg County,” said Mr. Ramey. “Physical activity levels and sport facility infrastructure go hand in hand. That’s why this investment will ensure residents have the means to get fit, get healthy and have fun.” “This new facility will offer countless opportunities for local residents to get active and participate in community events,” said Mr. Keddy. “Our government is proud to invest in infrastructure, such as the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre, and to contribute to building strong, sustainable and healthy communities.” The Town of Bridgewater and the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg have been working together to see the project realized. Mayor Don Downe, Municipality of the District of Lunenburg, and Mayor Carroll Publicover, Town of Bridgewater, are happy to see the project begin. Paul Belliveau, chair of the volunteer Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre Society, said residents are excited about what the facility will do for the region. “The community will now have a facility for their use and enjoyment, making a major contribution to maintaining and improving the quality of life on the South Shore.” The Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre will be a year-round sport, recreational and cultural facility. The project involves the construction of an ice pad with fixed seating for more than 1,000 spectators. The facility will also include an aquatic centre accommodating leisure and competitive users, a therapy pool, a public library and other multi-purpose spaces, including administrative offices, community and cultural spaces and areas capable of hosting meetings, high tech training sessions, exercise classes, senior citizens’ activities and many other functions. The province, through the Department of Health and Wellness, committed $10-million toward the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre. The government of Canada provided up to one-third of the eligible costs to a maximum contribution of $10.35-million. The Municipality of Lunenburg and the Town of Bridgewater also contributed a total of $8.85-million, with the remainder of the funds coming from grants, foundations and community fundraising. Canada and Nova Scotia are working together to create jobs and boost the economy, while making significant investments that help communities improve infrastructure.
(THE CANADIAN PRESS) CALGARY, A.B. – The National Energy Board has approved construction of a natural gas pipeline originally intended to supply the Pacific NorthWest LNG export terminal near Port Edward, B.C., even though that $36-billion project was cancelled last July.The NEB says it will grant an amendment to Nova Gas Transmission Ltd., a subsidiary of Calgary-based TransCanada Corp., to remove the requirement that its construction be preceded by a positive investment decision on the liquefied natural gas export terminal on B.C.’s coast.The approval allows TransCanada to construct the majority of its North Montney Mainline project at a cost of about $1.4 billion, allowing it to bring gas from northern B.C. through 300 kilometres of pipeline to connect with existing pipe about 35 kilometres southwest of Fort St. John, B.C. It has proposed beginning construction this year and bringing it into service, with the gas flowing east instead of west, over a two-year period.In hearings, several producers and pipeline companies argued that the new pipeline shouldn’t be approved because it will add natural gas to a western Canadian marketplace already swimming in it, further depressing prices at the marketing hub in Alberta.Nova responded in an NEB filing that the need for the line is demonstrated by its 20-year contracts with 11 North Montney customers for a total of 1.485 billion cubic feet per day.One of the clients is Progress Energy Canada Ltd., the exploration and production arm of Malaysia’s Petronas Bhd., the main proponent of the Pacific NorthWest LNG project.Petronas bought Progress Energy in 2012 and it has been one of the most active drillers in northeastern B.C. in recent years.The NEB says the current Nova tolling method is not appropriate and directed provisional measures until a new methodology is developed and approved.
During today’s stop in Gonaïves, Mr. Clinton, who was joined by Haitian President René Préval, focused on labour intensive rehabilitation schemes and providing basic services to communities in the Artibonite Valley.They also visited a project to refurbish the La Quinte River, which flooded the city last year, as well as an emergency hospital that has temporarily replaced one destroyed by hurricanes.The two men spoke with flood victims, who are weary of the 2009 hurricane season under way, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters today.Mr. Clinton, who recently took up his duties, met last night with both Mr. Préval and Prime Minister Pierre Louis, and will also visit a garbage recycling project that has created jobs in the disadvantaged suburb of Carrefour Feuilles in the capital, Port-au-Prince.Later today, he is expected to meet with parliamentarians, while tomorrow he will hold talks with members of the private sector, international and national non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and civil society groups, including women’s groups.During his three-day visit to Haiti, which began yesterday, the Special Envoy seeks to discuss how to support Government efforts to generate new jobs, brace the country for hurricanes and boost the delivery of basic social services.Mr. Clinton “will also focus on how to ensure that the United Nations, civil society and the donor community align their activities with the Government’s recovery plan, as well as with each other,” Ms. Montas said.“Haiti, notwithstanding the total devastation wreaked by the four storms last year, has the best chance to escape the darker aspects of its history in the 35 years that I have been going there,” the former US leader said at a press conference at UN Headquarters last month.Mr. Clinton has already visited Haiti this year, but this will be his first trip to the impoverished State since his appointment as an envoy by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in May. In March, the two men visited Haiti together to assess the situation in the wake of four back-to-back tropical storms battered the country in 2008, killing nearly 800 people and affecting an estimated 1 million people. 7 July 2009The United Nations Special Envoy to Haiti, the former United States president Bill Clinton, today visited the city of Gonaïves – which was devastated by floods last year – as part of his efforts to boost hurricane preparedness and job creation in the impoverished Caribbean nation.
Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick (left) and Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall were college teammates. (Facebook/John Leyba/The Denver Post/Getty Images)It’s been four months since quarterback Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers and despite his stellar performance stats, he remains unsigned.Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall is one of the latest NFL stars to sound off on Kaepernick’s continued free agency, which began following a season of the former University of Nevada-Reno star protesting the oppression of Black people in America by originally sitting, then, later, taking a knee during the national anthem.“Maybe the owners are scared of having that distraction on the team or maybe fans boycott the games or whatever case it may be,” Marshall said to Altitude Sports Network Tuesday, June 6. “Honestly, if everybody really sat and looked at the reasons why he did it, he didn’t hurt nobody.“They act like he hit his girlfriend or got a DUI or something like that,” Marshall said, conjuring thoughts of former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd, who was arrested for a DUI in 2016 and later signed with the Minnesota Vikings. “It’s almost like they’re shunning him worse than they do the people that get arrested, and I think it’s ridiculous. …“Colin, he’s done so much for the community. He was named top 100 most influential person [by Time magazine]. I think, ‘Why wouldn’t you want that? That exhibits leadership.’”Kaepernick’s most notable accomplishments with the 49ers include leading the team to the Super Bowl in 2013 and throwing 16 touchdowns and only four interceptions with what Marshall called a “terrible team” in 2016.“I saw something where he had a 90 passer rating, higher than [Los Angeles Chargers QB] Philip Rivers and [New York Giants QB] Eli Manning,” Marshall said. “I see these stats and numbers, and you know they say numbers don’t lie, right?“So, I mean, what’s the real issue is the question.”Marshall’s teammate, tight end Virgil Green, believes Kaepernick choosing to exercise his First Amendment rights is the cause of his continued free agency. Kaepernick recently worked out for the Seattle Seahawks but ultimately wasn’t signed. There also were rumors that the Broncos, New York Jets and Cleveland Browns were considering him but nothing ever materialized.“Kap is a great quarterback,” Green told reporters Tuesday. “He is a smart quarterback. He is very competitive. It is kind of shocking that he is not on a team. But, at the same time, there are a lot of different opinions and viewpoints out there, and they don’t all agree with Kap.“It’s something that I think he has to deal with, but ultimately, I do think he should be a quarterback in the National Football League.”
Emphasizing the advantages of integrating biotechnology on his farm, ASA Chairman Steve Wellman spoke to the nearly 200 attendees of the International Biotechnology Symposium in Champaign, Ill., last week. Discussion at the event centered on the pipeline of agricultural biotechnology traits that show a promising future for crop production and quality around the world.“The development, acceptance and growth of crops with biotech traits has led to numerous improvements in the farmer’s ability to meet the growing global demand for food, feed, fiber and fuel while adopting more conservation practices,” Wellman said. “Future traits for insect resistance or the ability to increase yield will continue to aid increasing production on a limited land base while consuming fewer resources. Biotechnology will also add value to our crops through quality traits such as high oleic or omega 3 oils or modified proteins in soybeans. I believe biotechnology is the base for how US farmers have achieved sustainable agricultural production and will continue to assist us in improving our ability to produce sustainably.”Wellman and other participants also addressed asynchronous approval systems that threaten new product development and commercialization and other topics. “Our challenge has been and continues to be the regulatory approval process in the US and our overseas markets,” he told attendees. “Along with the delays in getting regulatory approvals we also face the stiff challenge from some consumers and their resistance to biotechnology.”
Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball TournamentThursday March 14, 2019Chris MackDwayne SuttonLouisvilleNorth Carolina – 83, Louisville – 70CHRIS MACK: Carolina is a great team. They were better than us tonight, that’s for sure. And it’s nothing that we didn’t know coming in. But I thought where the game got out of reach for us early on was because of their transition. I mean it’s phenomenal, as fast as any team I’ve coached against. And you talk about it, you talk about it, but talking doesn’t prepare you sometimes. And you give those guys credit, they were shot out of a cannon, that ball was up the floor and in such a hurry and got to the rim, they hit the rim runner a couple times, they get advance pass threes to Cam Johnson and really, really put us back. And we were never able to recover enough. I give our guys great credit for continuing to fight against one of the elite teams in all of college basketball, but I thought those were the two things that we could have controlled. It takes effort and communication to get back in transition and then it takes effort to keep them off the glass. I thought we passed for the most part that second part of keeping them off the glass, but we didn’t do the job that we needed to do in transition. Second half turnovers when we started to cut the margin just killed us.Q. You have to be happy with V.J. and Darius Perry’s progress going into the tournament. You really got bench punch now, how does that make you feel?CHRIS MACK: Great. I thought for the better part of both games a lot of guys stepped up. And hasn’t always been easy for Darius and V.J. through out the year but they really gave our team a shot in the arm. I thought they did great things on both ends of the floor and hopefully they gained a lot of personal confidence. We’re going to need to be a deep team and if we expect to make any type of run in tournament play.Q. You did a great job of keeping them out of transition in Chapel Hill and if I remember the Louisville game you made them play a lot of half court offense in that game as well. What was different tonight and then I would ask specifically what part did Kenny Williams defensive pressure early play in getting them some turnovers and get the break going?CHRIS MACK: It’s hard to say what they did better, other than Roy did something that to get those guys shot out of a cannon. I remember years ago when he coached Kansas against Marquette I believe in the Final Four in New Orleans and I don’t know if I have ever seen a team play as fast that day as they did until today. The floor was tilted, even on made shots we could not get back and we ended up adjusting. Instead of sending three guys to the offensive glass we ended up sending two and we haven’t done that one time all year in both games that we played Carolina. So I think it was more them trying to swing a knockout punch early and play downhill. And Coby White made the right decision each and every time whether it was an advance pass to Cam Johnson, whether it was to Brooks underneath, I mean even when Malik got his first foul of the game it was in transition right under the restricted arc. So they’re a load when they play that quickly. Not just Kenny Williams, but all those guys I thought were very, very handsy, they pressured our guards, they did a really good job on ball screen coverage for the most part and they have terrific length and great anticipation. And while we took care of the ball well in the first half we certainly didn’t do it well enough in the second half to give ourselves a chance to cut the margin even further.Q. When you guys will see some new faces in the NCAA tournament do you think this team will thrive against the grind of the ACC that you’ve been through, will that help you when you get to the NCAAs?CHRIS MACK: I told these guys in the locker room that we have played the best teams in the country. I mean there’s a reason that y’all are talking about a possibility, not saying it’s going to happen, a possibility of three No. 1 seeds. That’s incredible. And even if they don’t get three, if even if our league doesn’t get three No. 1 seeds it just shows you the quality of basketball that we have. So, yeah, it beats you up, and they’re extremely talented and well-coached. It’s the best conference in the country, in my opinion. But every game in the tournament is going to be difficult. Every single one. Hopefully our guys understand that when we do the things that we can control, we’ll give ourselves a chance to win against anybody.Q. Duane, after their early surge I think they were up 16 something like maybe 18 you guys came roaring back, you got a lot of transition, got the lead down to one, hit a lot of, you hit several threes in there, what was going well during that phase of the game and why weren’t you able to sustain it?DWAYNE SUTTON: I think our energy picked up throughout that stretch, we did a good job of rebounding the ball in that stretch and pushing the tempo ourselves, but I think we made some mental mistakes and they got the lead back to around 10 at that point, but I think we did a good job of cutting the lead at that point.Q. Chris, you talk about things you can control, what one or two things in this game would you really have like to have maybe had a little bit better handle than you did?CHRIS MACK: I think those two. Transition defense early on, I thought we did a much better job when we weren’t giving live ball turnovers in the second half. I thought we did a much better job of getting matched up and making it more five on five and they’re still terrific in the half court. Luke Maye is a tough matchup for anybody, Cam Johnson is so efficient he doesn’t waste any time on the floor. When he’s open he shoots, when he’s not he doesn’t. But if we could have boxed them in and made them play a little bit of half court more in the first half. In the second half we just, we had too many turnovers. And that’s what went from about a 10 point, 11 point margin where, hey, we got a fighter’s chance to get this to a couple possession game if we handle ourselves and we turned the ball over and that wasn’t a trait of ours the first 30 minutes, but it was the last 10.FastScripts Transcript by ASAP SportsRev #1 by #176 at 2019-03-15 01:39:00 GMT Print Friendly Version Story Links

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Customer experience is a top priority. In fact, one report estimates that it will overtake both price and product as the key brand differentiator by 2020. But, there is no need to sacrifice one for the sake of another; customer experience can easily go hand in hand with a high-quality product.Related: Why We Waited Four Years to Launch Our Second ProductIn a recent article, I shared how Microsoft had started experimenting with a new “open hacks” approach to customer experience, sending its developers to work side by side with its customers to co-build technology that solves their biggest pain points. After just a few months of experimenting with this approach, we’ve learned innumerable lessons, including just how effective this methodology can be. This close collaboration has not only offered us a deep understanding of customer needs and firsthand feedback, but has also helped guide our product development. And it can unlock the same potential for companies both big and small.Here’s a look back at the lessons we’ve learned along the way and some advice to help your company embrace a similar strategy:Direct evangelism: Learning from customer problems and questionsToday, many businesses are out of touch with their customers’ needs and thus slow to innovate to meet those needs. The open hacks approach was born from efforts to find a more customer-centric approach.Rather than hosting tutorials for your clients to learn how to use your tools, the open hacks methodology involves your team members working side by side with customers in an effort to gain a deep understanding of their needs and help them successfully complete projects for their clients. In an aim to help with technical assistance and marketing, for example, your team members might accompany customers to meetings held with their clients, listening intently to the concerns expressed.Such a strategy has shown to significantly boost customer engagement. For a company of any size, it can help you discover the “cliffs” — or hidden problems — that arise for your customers when using your technology. Given the close proximity in which you work with your customers, you gain clear insight into their sharpest pain points, validating your new solutions before they’re built and boosting the adoption of your products.Related: 5 Lessons on How You Can Deliver a Product Your Customers Actually WantDeveloper experience hackfests: Solving problems with customersBut, it’s not just about working with customers to understand their problems and achieve their goals. You should also actually include customers in the process of building solutions that address those problems.The time has come to think beyond internal hackfests and invite the customers themselves to participate in the hacks. Many businesses might worry that having customers participate would mean exposing them to the shortcomings and failures that the development process inevitably entails — that by pulling back the curtain you’ll potentially cast your business in a negative light.In truth, inviting the customer provides a huge opportunity for everyone to learn together, and from one another. Rather than viewing your business negatively, your customers are more likely to begin to see you as a partner working together to solve tough problems, writing code shoulder to shoulder.What’s more, inviting multiple customers who share similar problems to a hack can enable problems to be solved even more quickly and elegantly. Cisco’s IVP Labs Hackathon last year provides a perfect example. Inviting three valued customers to participate in a 24-hour hackathon aimed at improving customers’ content discovery in video services, the hack generated ideas that went directly into the development pipeline.As was the case with Cisco’s hackathon, customers are likely to jump at the chance to join in and help build a robust solution that best meets their needs. And regardless of the type of problem being targeted — be it code, engineering or otherwise — an environment of open collaboration and respect is formed. Through this co-innovation, relationships and bonds that last far beyond the hack can be built.Related: Sell More Products by Letting Your Customers Design Them for YouSparking the competitive spirit and the power of open registrationWhat can make a collaborative hack even more fruitful is adding the element of friendly competition. Early on, Microsoft experimented with gamification in its hackathons. In its first OpenHacks events hosted in October of last year, the gatherings invoked the competitive spirit as customers teamed up with Microsoft developers to complete five progressively more difficult challenge-based hacking activities. With the clock ticking, and the teams’ progress displayed on a big screen, groups leveraged the collective expertise and problem-solving of the team to work with specific technologies and complete certain tasks.As one activity was completed and the next unlocked, teams were rewarded with a simple cup of coffee before starting the next mission — even the smallest prizes added to the energy of the competition. And as teams progressed through the challenges, a fun, competitive spirit emerged, driving people to work hard to learn and solve problems together.The event was a huge success and demonstrated the value of an open hacking environment driven by camaraderie and friendly competition while still focused on solving real customer problems. Building on that success, Microsoft has since taken the concept to the next level, now hosting its OpenHacks events internationally and opening registration to include not just customers but also customers’ competitors. Over the course of three days, OpenHacks participants dive into customer scenarios and problems, working to engineer solutions that benefit their mutual clients.One participant went so far as to say that he got more out of the few days in the open hack than had in the previous six months of solo work.You don’t, however, have to be a large corporation like Microsoft to help your customers reap the same benefits. Small and medium-sized companies can do the same by bringing together their customers and the developers responsible for building their products. Consider it a new spin on classic startup strategies like design thinking or the lean startup methodology, where the customer is at the heart of the process. You can make an open hacks-type approach work for your company by taking a well-known problem that you’ve had, putting it into this environment and working shoulder-to-shoulder with clients to innovate and solve it.For entrepreneurs and other business leaders, OpenHacks have the potential to benefit your customers as well your own business. But, even without launching an OpenHack, and simply preparing for one, you have the potential to innovate and to engage customers in a more fulfilling way by addressing their biggest concerns. By learning about customers’ problems and solving them together with a little bit of competitive spirit, implementing OpenHacks within your own organizations will far surpass your expectations. Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 6 min read
Mexico City, Mexico — An alleged criminal gang leader wanted by Mexican police was arrested Thursday despite an attempt to radically alter his appearance.Roberto Moyado, who is also referred to as El Betito, was arrested Thursday by federal police agents while traveling on a public road in the Tlalpan district of Mexico City. Moyado, who is alleged to be the leader of the criminal group La Tepito Union, had undergone a hair transplant and extreme weight loss of 30 kilos to alter his appearance.He is considered to be one of the main generators of violence and drug dealers in Mexico City. The National Security Commissioner, Renato Sales Heredia, made the announcement in Mexico City Thursday, noting that Moyado was arrested after being identified, despite his attempt to modify his physical appearance.Sales Heredia said that Moyado was arrested without incident and was found in the company of his 50-year-old brother, who was reportedly his bodyguard.An investigation by the Anti-Drug Division of the Federal Police found Moyado used apartments and houses in residential areas of Mexico City to take refuge from authorities as well as criminal rivals.Moyado has criminal records that date back to 2008, when he was arrested for robbery. He has since been linked to heading activities of drug dealing and extortion, dispossession, kidnapping and money laundering among other illicit activities.According to Sales Heredia, the Tepito Union criminal group is linked to the sale and distribution of drugs at nightclubs as well as the collection of monthly fees from businesses located in various areas of Mexico City, but primarily in the Cuauhtémoc region.In October of 2017, Pancho Cayagua, a leader of the same group was killed, a crime that El Betito was accused of. Moyado assumed control of the criminal group and is said to be the main generator of violence and drug dealing in Mexico City, as well as in the State of Mexico.At the time of their arrest, Moyado and his brother were found carrying $10,000 USD in cash, 4,700 peso and 140 doses of crystal. They were also found in possession of a gun.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Nathan Denette TORONTO – CBC said Monday it plans to launch a paid version of a new CBC TV app that will let viewers watch programs without ads.The broadcaster said in a memo that the new app, which will also be available for free in an ad-supported version, will allow users to live stream CBC TV, watch episodes on demand on the same day they’re released, see ad-free children’s programing and see series not aired on the network.“It is our hope that this new offering will entice an increasing portion of our audience to spend even more time with us each month,” said Heather Conway, executive vice-president of CBC’s English services, in the memo.CBC said that starting Tuesday, all of its 14 regional linear channels will be live-streamed, and audiences will also be able to sign in with a CBC account to access more features.The broadcaster said it will cost $4.99 for the ad-free, premium version of the new CBC TV app.It says the app is part of its expanding offerings to new digital platforms as customers get more of their content from digital services such as Netflix.CBC says more than 1.1 million unique visitors used the CBC TV digital service in November. by The Canadian Press Posted Dec 4, 2017 3:46 pm PDT Last Updated Dec 5, 2017 at 8:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CBC to launch ad-free paid streaming option as part of revamped TV app
The government on Tuesday welcomed the United Nations Secretary-General’s report on Unficyp, which will continue to focus on efforts that contribute to a solution of the island’s division.“Considering the UN efforts to rationalise peace missions, we are satisfied by the assurance we have from the organisation’s general secretariat that it will not in any way affect the mission and efficiency of the force in Cyprus,” government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said.“We note that the force will continue to focus, as stated in the report, on efforts that contribute towards achieving a comprehensive solution of the Cyprus problem, which is our main objective, and to return to normal conditions in our country.”The report circulated on Monday as an official document of the UN General Assembly in the framework of drafting the budget for the period from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019, which amounts to $55,152,000 exclusive of budgeted voluntary contributions amounting to $592,200.The proposed budget of $55,152,000 represents an increase of $1,152,000, or 2.1 per cent, compared with the $54,000,000 for the 2017/18 period.The proposed budget provides for the deployment of up to 860 military personnel, 69 UN police officers, 39 international staff and 119 Cypriot staff.It also notes that during the 2018-19 period a reduction of military personnel to 834 is proposed.The report elaborates on the aims that Unficyp is called on to meet and takes into account the military evaluation and recent Security Council resolution 2398 which endorsed it.“On 30 January 2018, the Security Council, in its resolution 2398 (2018), welcomed the report on the strategic review of the Force and endorsed the implementation of its recommendations within existing resources. Accordingly, the military strength levels and some aspects of the civilian staffing have been adjusted in line with the recommendations in the strategic review, including a strengthened and increased emphasis on liaison and analysis. Further internal assessment of the effectiveness and efficiency of the recommendations implemented will be undertaken with a view to additional adjustments in the future,” the report says.It adds that “the activities of Unficyp will continue to focus on creating conditions conducive to the achievement of a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus issue and a return to normal conditions.”Furthermore, as in his two previous reports, the UN Secretary General expressed his concern over the increased civilian activities in the buffer zone.“The demining of the buffer zone, the opening of seven crossing points in recent years and the expected opening of two additional crossing points by mid-2018 have all led to an increase in civilian activity in the buffer zone, in particular by civilians seeking to farm, hunt, work or even undertake construction, whether authorised by Unficyp or not,” the report says.It notes that “this ongoing increase in civilian activity presents an increased risk of tension, not only between civilians but also between civilians and opposing forces, which in turn can increase tension between the opposing forces themselves. Civilian activities in the buffer zone are expected to continue to increase, and additional work will continue to be required from the Force to reduce and manage any potential increase in tension between the two communities.”The report says that “Unficyp will also continue to facilitate the implementation of confidence-building measures requested and agreed upon by the leaders of both communities or as otherwise appropriate.Such measures will include the opening of new crossing points and the maintenance of a technical demining capability with the support of the United Nations Mine Action Service”.Furthermore, it says that “during the 2018/19 period, the Force will continue to facilitate eight technical committees, including the Technical Committees on Crime and Criminal Matters, Crossings and Cultural Heritage.”It also refers to the implementation of a strategy for the analysis of social media posts with the analysis of news, views, political activity and public debate on the Cyprus issue, with an aim to produce 52 reports annually.In this context, the plan is to produce “300 Facebook posts, 500 Twitter posts, 250 Flickr posts, 24 YouTube posts, 200 website updates and 4 overarching social media campaigns,” as well as offer “public information support for 12 island-wide intercommunal outreach/media awareness events.”You May LikeThrone: Free Online GamesIf You’re Over 40 And Own A Computer, This Game Is A Must!Throne: Free Online GamesUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
