02:37
(26 Jul 2018) MCCARTNEY RETURNS TO ROOTS WITH GIG AT LIVERPOOL'S CAVERN CLUB Sir Paul McCartney is going back to where it all began – The Cavern Club in Liverpool. On Thursday afternoon (26 JULY 2018), the Beatle will perform an exclusive free gig at the famous club on Mathew Street, credited as the birthplace of the Fab Four. It's been 19 years since McCartney last performed at the venue – December 1999. The Cavern Club played host to The Beatles nearly 300 times in the early 1960s and became known as the center of Liverpool's rock and roll scene. The original club closed in 1973, later reopening after extensive redevelopment in 1984. McCartney will take to the stage at 2pm local time Thursday (1300GMT). Free tickets for the event are available from Liverpool's Echo Arena box office and are limited to one per person.

Taraji P Henson talks about her engagement and how she met her fiance as Terrence Howard and Jussie
 
04:13
(15 May 2018) TARAJI P. HENSON: IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT WITH FIANCE KELVIN HAYDEN Taraji P. Henson was all smiles Monday (14 MAY 2018) on the red carpet, basking in the glow of her recent engagement. The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden on Mother's Day. "I knew he was gonna pop the question because he all but told me himself. I just didn't know when. That surprised me. He just did it," said Henson, as she attended an annual event in New York where Fox promotes its new TV lineup to advertisers. The actress said she was introduced to Hayden by her makeup artist three years ago -- and it was love at first sight. "She was like, 'You need to go out. You need to meet somebody. You're too fly. You're too amazing.' I was like, 'I don't know.' She's like, 'You're not gonna meet him at home. You need to go out.'" The makeup artist arranged a party full of eligible bachelors for Henson to mingle with. "I remember I was like, 'You better show me the pictures of some of these guys because I don't want to embarrass you and I feel weird doing this anyway but I'm gonna do it," she recalled. "She kept showing me his picture and it was like a close-up and I remember I zoomed into his eyes and I was like, I felt a spark. And I was like, 'Wow, something about his eyes are so gentle.' And you know how they say you can fall in love at first sight from a picture? That's exactly what happened so when we got to the actual event, I met everybody, I shook all the other guy's hands and I literally was looking for him and when he walked up to where I was it was like people parted like the red sea, a light came on, I heard angels and he reached out to shake my hand and we danced and we talked and we were hanging out every day since," she laughed. Henson says her "Empire" co-stars are thrilled with the news. "Jussie came down to my room and screamed and did backflips. Terrence said some amazing things about my fiance today in interviews because he's known him since we started dating and he's just happy. They're all really happy for me," she said. Howard says Hayden must be special for Henson to choose to be with him. "Watching so many people try and court her and the integrity that she showed. She's always had a motto. I've never known any person that she's worked with that's ever been able to go on a date with her, you know, she's that secure about maintaining her integrity so for her to let Kelvin in I'm like, wow. That's a big move. That's a big move right there for her." Fox and other broadcast networks are presenting their new schedules to advertisers in New York this week.

Sean Penn: Bradley Cooper remake of 'A Star is Born' is astonishing
 
02:54
(28 May 2018) SEAN PENN: BRADLEY COOPER REMAKE OF 'A STAR IS BORN' IS ASTONISHING The anticipated remake of "A Star is Born" doesn't premiere until October but it's already gaining buzz. The movie is the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the film alongside Lady Gaga, who plays an aspiring singer - a role previously played by Judy Garland (the 1954 version) and Barbra Streisand (the 1976 version). A trailer premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas recently to applause from the crowd of theater owners and exhibitors and tweets of praise from journalists in attendance. One person who has seen an early screening is actor Sean Penn, who described it during a recent interview as "one of the best movies I've seen in I don't know how many years." "The acting is brilliant. Both, they are astonishing in it. And he as a director is the kind of artist that we had when I was kind of coming up as an audience. I knew he was a very talented actor, I did not know what was going on inside that guy's brain until I saw this movie and so that got – I'm really excited to see because: A, it's a great movie for a cinephile whose all about art films because it's all there. But that doesn't mean that everybody else isn't going to understand it and love it. This thing is like a Hal Ashby move. It's for everybody. It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie to make sure, for anybody." Cooper already has his next directing gig lined up, helming and starring in Leonard Bernstein biopic "Bernstein." Bernstein was named conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra at 25. He then wrote and composed the music for the film "West Side Story." A second movie about Bernstein is also in the works with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role.

Evicted white farmer returns to his  farm in Zimbabwe
 
04:00
(22 Dec 2017) A white commercial farmer, who was evicted from his farm in Manicaland province in Zimbabwe, returned to the area on Thursday after local community members said they wanted him back. Robert Smart and his family were welcomed back at their home after community members, local politicians and the country's new government intervened to reverse their forceful eviction by heavily armed Zimbabwean riot police back in June. The tobacco and maize grower was evicted from the estate near Rusape, about 200 kilometres (125 miles) east of Harare, to reportedly pave way for a top cleric, Trevor Manhanga, who had links with then president Robert Mugabe. The grabbing of Lesbury Farm came shortly after Mugabe told his supporters at a rally that all remaining white commercial farmers should be kicked off their properties to make way for the ruling Zanu-PF party's youth and his supporters who had no land. But, according to New Zimbabwe.com, president Mnangagwa's special adviser Chris Mutswangwa said on Tuesday that Smart and his son Darryn should not be disturbed in their farming activities. "These farmers are Zimbabweans and they belong to Manicaland province," Mutswangwa was quoted as saying, adding that the country now needed direct investments to boost the economy. Land is a contentious issue in Zimbabwe, where the government of former President Robert Mugabe, starting around 2000, initiated land seizures and evictions of farmers from the country's white minority, which relinquished power in 1980 after a guerrilla war by black nationalists. Mugabe said the often-violent reform program was meant to redistribute resources to poor blacks, but many prime farms instead ended up in the hands of ruling ZANU-PF party leaders, party loyalists, security chiefs, relatives and cronies. More recently, the situation was further complicated by rifts within the ruling party that led to the military intervention and the victory of president Emmerson Mnangagwa over a faction linked to Mugabe's wife Grace, who previously had presidential ambitions. Mnangagwa in his inauguration speech said farmers would be compensated for the seized land but said the program itself would not be reversed.

David Bowie is...’ exhibition makes last, and largest stop, at Brooklyn Museum
 
05:23
(28 Feb 2018) 'DAVID BOWIE IS' EXHIBITION MAKES LAST, AND LARGEST STOP, AT BROOKLYN MUSEUM Five years after premiering in London, a comprehensive David Bowie exhibit is making its last and most potent stop when it opens at the Brooklyn Museum in New York on Friday (2 MARCH). "David Bowie is" will be one of the biggest the museum has ever done. It includes iconic costumes, video footage, and some offbeat items too. Victoria Broackes, from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, co-curated the exhibit. She explains how Bowie was chosen for the initial 2013 exhibition. "We actually had Bowie on the top of a really short list of people we wanted to cover as a single artist subject at the VNA. But there was very little material, just a couple of collections in the UK, and that was because Bowie had it all, and he had been amassing it over many years. And then in the last ten years or so he was actually buying back material whereas ever came onto the market, which was rarely. So that is so unusual.  I don't know of another artist it's not just a pop artist but he has an archive of 75,000 objects going back to childhood. That is exceptional, "Broackes said. Matthew Yokobosky designed the space at the museum for the massive showing. But when it's over, he's not sure if there's going to be a more permanent place for the material. "The final venue for this exhibition, which is why it had to be just even a little bit more over the top. And you know, what will happen with David's material after is still being discussed." The material includes costumes from many of the Bowie's iconic looks, including Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Halloween Jack, Major Tom, and the Thin White Duke. Broackes said that these personas were important to Bowie, because they allowed him to go beyond the music. "We're standing in the video section of the exhibition where we look at how Bowie really from his earliest days was interested in how the music looked, as well as how it sounded. And we have the famous 'Ashes to Ashes' costume by Natasha Korniloff, which she worked - she was a particular dance designer, and worked with Bowie going right back into the early days in the late 60s and 70s. And he worked with her again in 1980 for that video, which you know, we have to think it predates MTV. But Bowie was ahead of the pack in videos, as well as most other things," Broackes said. The exhibition includes approximately 500 objects, including 60 performance costumes, photographs, posters, handwritten lyrics, and videos. Yokobosky highlighted some of the must-see areas, which include many of Bowie's influences. "Yeah, you definitely want to hit the music video room, where the entire room is designed like a lightning bolt. You want to hit the black and white years, which the walls are painted to look like the set from this late 70s concert. You definitely want to look for the early material of influence, from German theater, Japanese theater - I mean, he studied a lot." "David Bowie is" opens on Friday (2 MARCH) and runs through July 15.

(19 Apr 2018) PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ATTEND WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT RECEPTION Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Thursday attended a Women's Empowerment reception hosted by the British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. The event was part of a summit of representatives of the Commonwealth, an association of the UK and its former colonies, which includes 53 countries held together loosely by historic ties. The biennial Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting is being held in London for the first time in two decades. The survival of the Commonwealth owes much to the commitment of the queen, who has visited almost every member country - often multiple times - over her 66-year reign.

New US envoy to Netherlands grilled over 2015 comments
 
02:28
(10 Jan 2018) The new US ambassador to the Netherlands clashed Wednesday with Dutch reporters on his first official day in the job over controversial comments he made in 2015. Hoekstra previously claimed that the "Islamic movement" was creating chaos in Europe and suggested that extremists were burning politicians and cars in the Netherlands. At a news conference shortly after presenting his credentials to Dutch King Willem-Alexander at a palace in The Hague, Pete Hoekstra was repeatedly asked about the comments he made at a 2015 conference, which made headlines last year when he described his own words to a Dutch reporter as fake news. Hoekstra later denied using the phrase fake news. In a statement last year, Hoekstra said: "I made certain remarks in 2015 and regret the exchange during the Nieuwsuur interview. Please accept my apology." On Wednesday, Hoekstra referred back to that statement and said he didn't want to revisit the issue - but that did not stop Dutch reporters from pressing unsuccessfully for a clarification. Dutch reporters reacted angrily, with one saying "this is the Netherlands; you have to answer questions". Another asked if the ambassador could name a politician who had been burned in recent years. Hoekstra, a former Republican congressman from Michigan, was born in the northern Dutch city of Groningen before his family emigrated to the United States. He previously served as chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and was the ranking Republican on the Committee until 2011. He told reporters he would work to build on existing strong links between the Netherlands and the United States.

Rescuers at Thai cave complex hold evacuation drill
 
03:14
(30 Jun 2018) Rescuers in Thailand held an evacuation drill on Friday as the search continued for 12  boys and their football coach who disappeared in a cave a week ago. The drill involved a team of nurses, 13 ambulances and a helicopter. Tanasarn Phruethisathaphon, a volunteer doctor, said the plan was to treat the teenagers inside the cave until they were able to move themselves. But an emergency evacuation would be carried out if they were in critical condition. Special care would be given to their eyes to protect them from sudden exposure to light after so many day in the dark. The boys, aged 11 to 16, and their coach entered the sprawling Tham Luang Nang Non cave after a soccer game on Saturday afternoon, but near-constant rains and flooded have stalled the search for them. While muddy floodwaters still reached near the entrance of the cave, Narongsak Osatanakorn, Chiang Rai's Governor, said water level inside the cave had decreased. Throughout the past week, people have travelled to the site to pray and give offerings to what they believe are the cave's spirits. Many Thais believe that all places have guardian spirits. On Saturday, authorities denied a request from local residents dressed in traditional clothes to pray inside the cave.

Tracy Morgan gets a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, with support from Martin Lawrence and Jordan Pee
 
05:03
(10 Apr 2018) TRACY MORGAN GETS HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME STAR Comic actor Tracy Morgan got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday (10 APRIL 2018) with support from Martin Lawrence, who gave him his first break in showbiz, and Jordan Peele, who is producing his latest TV series. "When I was a poor kid growing up in the projects in Brooklyn, I never dreamed I would have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," he said. "And now that I'm here, I have to tell you, I feel pretty comfortable. No, I'll tell you why: because of the smell of weed and stale urine, just like being in the projects, man. Just like weed and stale urine. I'll tell you what would really make me feel at home is if somebody spray-painted graffiti on my star." The ceremony came nearly four years after a traffic crash that left Morgan – best known for "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" -- in a coma for two weeks. It was June 7, 2014, when a Wal-Mart truck slammed into the limousine Morgan was riding in. The crash killed a close friend and fellow comedian, and left Morgan with broken bones and brain damage. "This man right here is a legend. He is going down in history," said "Get Out" writer-director Jordan Peele, who is executive producing Morgan's new TBS series "The Last O.G." He recounted a meeting with the 49-year-old performer two years ago. "At one point in this meeting, this meeting – this breakfast that we had, he looks over at the other end of the Four Seasons and he goes – you know who that is, Jordan? You know who that is? I was like no, who is it? That's Larry Flynt. He goes, you want to meet Larry Flynt? I'm like, no. He's like, let's go. So we walk over to Larry Flynt's table," Peele said. "He goes Mr. Flynt, I just want to say, your work helped me through a very hard time. If there is anything you need from me, I'll be there for you. Mr. Flynt looks up at Tracy and with all the love in his heart, he just looks at Tracy and he goes, 'Ahhhhhhhhh.'" Morgan said Peele's comedy sketches helped him "speed up my healing process." Lawrence met Morgan at Def Comedy Jam and gave him a role on his 1990s comedy series "Martin." Morgan said the star – the 2,633rd on the Walk of Fame – was an important milestone in his life. "This is the culmination of many years of work and trying to be a good person in this world. So I just think the chambers of commerce of Hollywood for immortalizing my name. Long after I'm gone, my great, great, great grandkids grandkids can walk up to my star and say that's my grandfather. So that's the foundation. That's important to me," he said.

Coach Tells Nassar to 'Go to Hell' at Sentencing
 
02:39
(17 Jan 2018) As more victims came forward in court to describe their abuse at the hands of disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar, the coach of one female gymnast told Nassar "to go to hell," and explained how Nassar violated the trust of so many people. "He didn't only deceive these girls, which was, honest to God, that's the worst of the worst," said Thomas Brennan, who accompanied former gymnast Gwen Anderson to the microphone. "What you did to everybody else who trusted you and sent girls your way, is disgusting! Reprehensible, unforgivable!" he said. Nearly 100 victims are expected to address the court during the four-day sentencing hearing for Nassar. Many have cried as they told their stories during the hearing, and some requested anonymity. "I remember that exact moment that I was being molested by somebody I trusted," said Gwen Anderson. "That I was one of the gymnasts that he had abused, that my life was never going to be the same," she said. Nassar has pleaded guilty to molesting females with his hands at his Michigan State University office, his home and a Lansing-area gymnastics club, often while their parents were in the room. He also worked for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, who is expected to order a sentence on Friday, has said the system had failed the gymnasts. Prosecutors are seeking at least 40 years in prison for Nassar, who has already been sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes. Olympic gold medalists Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman have said they, too, were victims.

Gillian Anderson celebrates her 'fiercely independent' 'X-Files' character while getting a Hollywood
 
05:02
(9 Jan 2018) GILLIAN ANDERSON CELEBRATES HER 'X-FILES' CHARACTER AT WALK OF FAME CEREMONY Gillian Anderson celebrated her "fiercely independent" "X-Files" character as she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday (8 JANUARY). "I first moved to Los Angeles 25 years ago to become a film actress. But then I had the great good fortune of landing in Chris Carter's television universe in the shoes of Dana Katherine Scully -- a woman who wasn't just the object of a man's desire, but a strong-willed, smart, brave woman who was career-driven and fiercely independent," Anderson said. "The combination of Chris's creation and whatever rookie, naïve, terrified, determined will I brought to the table manifested a young woman yet to be depicted on TV. And as the fan response would soon prove, a desperately needed role model for women of all ages everywhere – who it turns out were simply not seeing themselves represented." Anderson was joined by "Hannibal" showrunner Bryan Fuller and actor Joel McHale, who appeared on "The X-Files." "'X-Files' fans, your queen is here. Here is your queen. Do not touch her. She will not sign stuff, OK? Especially body parts or personal diaries. Trust me, I have already asked," McHale said. The 49-year-old actress' star is next to that of her longtime "X-Files" co-star David Duchovny. Duchovny wasn't in attendance, but Anderson thanked him anyway. "I could not have wished for a more perfect platonic partner to spend 25 years of my life. Who would've guessed that when we sat side-by-side in the hallway at Fox during that ghastly audition process, 25 years on, we would not only still be filming but that we would be permanent concrete neighbors on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?" she said. The eleventh season of "The X-Files" premiered last week on Fox in the U.S. You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/3e47534de28e11a5d9cd6f1b17afd38d Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

'Disobedience' director defines Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams dynamic at Tribeca premiere: 'Explosive
 
05:15
(25 Apr 2018) 'DISOBEDIENCE' DIRECTOR DEFINES RACHEL WEISZ, RACHEL MCADAMS DYNAMIC AT TRIBECA PREMIERE: 'EXPLOSIVE COMBINATION' Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz brought their forbidden love story, 'Disobedience' to the Tribeca Film Festival Tuesday (APRIL 24) in New York. Weisz who both starred and produced the film, said she was "proud" of what she created. The film, adapted from the book by Naomi Alderman, centers around forbidden love between two women in a Jewish Orthodox community. "But it tells a completely universal story about how can we be free to love who we want to love," said Weisz. "And I think it speaks to everyone—doesn't matter what religion you are, what your sexual identity is. It's about freedom." Weisz also commented on her recent pregnancy announcement with husband Daniel Craig: "Yeah, this film was a long incubation. It was like a three-and-a-half-year pregnancy. This one won't be so long." With an expectant mother in Weisz and a new mom in McAdams, who recently welcomed a baby boy into the world, Weisz joked that there must have been "something in the water" on that film. Director Sebastian Lelio said of Weisz and McAdams that they were an "explosive combination." "I mean, they bring everything. I mean they are pure energy and talent. I think the combination of the two of them is so beautiful and electrical," said Lelio. Lelio said he was interested in striking a balance in the love scene between the two women: "I think we live in a time where there's so much access to everything, and there's this saturation of images. And I was very moved by the talent of making a real love scene, a sex scene between two woman without showing nudity, but hopefully making it really erotic and full of feelings. And so, it's all about their faces and what they are feeling and going through. And I hope that's a way for the spectator to get under their skin." "Disobedience" releases to select theaters April 27.

Pope's car suffers flat tyre en route to Lima
 
02:37
(20 Jan 2018) The pope may be infallible, but apparently he's not immune to flat tyres. Francis had to change cars en route to Lima from the airport on Friday after the Fiat 500 he was riding in got a flat. Vatican spokesman Greg Burke confirmed the change of plans in a message to journalists. He said the tyre started losing air a few miles (kilometres) from the presidential palace, where Francis was due to meet with Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski. The pope didn't lose a beat, using the meeting and subsequent speech to Peruvian authorities to denounce corruption as a "social virus" that infects all aspects of life and must be combatted.

Diplo on Cardi B: She's 'one of the most fascinating females in music'
 
03:35
(12 Jan 2018) DIPLO ON CARDI B: SHE'S 'ONE OF THE MOST FASCINATING FEMALES IN MUSIC' With few exceptions, male artists have been dominating the American music charts over the past year. Despite the success of artists like Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello and Cardi B, EDM star Diplo attributes the relative lack of female chart-toppers to a shift in the way people are creating and consuming music. "We're having a lot of songs that are just becoming, not really one hit wonders, but we have songs that are charging up the charts themselves via streaming services. A lot of young records, rap music, and I think these records are doing it on their own. They're not working with giant marketing machines. And if you do rely on those things, like Katy's albums or… 'cause nothing is guaranteed anymore. That's the main thing. Years ago, you could always bet your money, like some of these pop stars were like the big banks that couldn't fail. But now nothing is guaranteed." Katy Perry's "Witness" dropped last June and underperformed compared to her previous releases. According to Diplo, another problem is that U.S. charts don't allow for movement among the top positions. "We have longer running number ones too. Like in England, there's a new number one... Basically, there's like 40 number ones a year or every week there's like a new number one. So Rita Ora had like three number ones this year. In England, charts change a lot quicker. In America, we kind of have people who stay in the charts and it's a larger country to kind of like move in one direction or another. But there wasn't a lot of records out either. Last year (2016) was like you had Beyonce, you had Adele. You had these huge records that took up all the space on the charts. It just comes in waves." Many are hopeful for more female chart toppers in 2018. So far "Perfect," from Ed Sheeran and Beyonce, has led Billboard's Hot 100 pack. Camila Cabello's "Havana" continues its reign on the Pop Songs chart and Cardi B recently became the third act to nab three Hot 100 spots in the top 10 at the same time. "I think it's kind of refreshing that we have records like Cardi B going number one. That would never happen four or five years ago. Cardi B is only the fourth black female to, you know, to have a top 10 record in the last decade. It was only Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Cardi was the other woman to kind of break into that so that's really cool and she came out of 'Love and Hip-Hop.' And like, no one would put her money on her two years ago when you just had her skits. But I thought she was one of the most fascinating females in music, so I'm happy for her." Cardi B started off as an ex-stripper on VH1 reality show "Love and Hip-Hop" before debuting "Bodak Yellow," which became a No. 1 smash.

Sophia robot takes first steps ++EMBARGOED 1300 GMT++
 
05:10
(8 Jan 2018) LEADIN: The humanoid robot Sophia is taking her first steps thanks to a new partnership with a university robotics lab. The Hong Kong-based startup Hanson Robotics has joined forces with experts at the University of Las Vegas to give walking legs to the talkative droid. STORYLINE: One small step for Sophia, one giant leap for AI. In the workplace of the Drones and Autonomous Systems Lab (DASL) at the University of Las Vegas, Sophia is taking her first ever steps. Gingerly, she shuffles along watched closely by her creator, Hanson Robotics founder and CEO David Hanson. The addition of legs to the lifelike bot is another stage in pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence for Hanson and his team. "We're really aspiring for Sophia to help people in medical applications, therapy, medical assistance and by giving her a body then that means that Sophia can help to learn to work with us in factories and help us around the home," says Hanson. "Eventually, we expect that she will be truly alive and with us in our world helping people on a daily basis." Experts from the University of Las Vegas created DRC-HUBO, a walking robot that won the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) in 2015, beating 22 competitors from five different countries. That expertise is now being applied to Sophia's evolving mobility. Hanson Robotics is also partnering with South Korea based Rainbow Robotics to make Sophia mobile. "So currently, with mechanical engineering practices, it's kind of rigid, which means a if robot falls, we have to calculate how to yield and it's very easy for robots to break and how to respond when walking that's very complicated too," says Hanson. Sophia first debuted in March 2016. A multinational team of scientists and engineers are fine tuning her appearance and the algorithms that enable her to smile, blink and refine her understanding and communication. Her skin is made of a nanotech material that Hanson invented and dubbed "Frubber," short for flesh-rubber, that has a flesh-like bouncy texture mimicking human skin. Cameras in her eyes and a 3D sensor in her chest help her "see." The processor that serves as her brain combines facial and speech recognition, natural language processing, speech synthesis and a motion control system. "Our AI team is really aspiring to use Sofia as a platform for achieving human-level general intelligence, that's creativity, the ability to dream and imagine, the ability to have compassion," says Hanson. "And that's another way that the physical body is really important. So, the machines can understand what it means to feel human through embodiment, compassion, to feel with us. "That's really important for artificial intelligence, I think, to be safe in the future, so they can understand what it feels to be human." The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) runs 9-12 January. Over 3,900 exhibitors will crowd Las Vegas convention centres showcasing the latest in high-tech products, devices and services. Top trends at this year's event include artificial intelligence, the 'Internet of Things' and mobility tech.

Newest World Trade Center Building Opens Monday
 
05:11
(8 Jun 2018) An 80-story office building set to open Monday (June 11) at the World Trade Center will be the third completed skyscraper at the 16-acre site where the twin towers once stood. There will be a ribbon cutting to formally open the 1,079-foot 3 World Trade Center. Office buildings already open are 1 World Trade Center, 4 World Trade Center, and 7 World Trade Center. Wedged between the Santiago Calatrava-designed transportation hub and 4 World Trade Center, which opened in 2013, the new building, designed by British architect Richard Rogers, consists of an 80-story tower straddling a 17-story box-like structure. Zigzagging beams down the sides of the tower look like an embellishment but are actually structural components that will allow for column-free floor plates inside. About 2.5 million square feet of office space are about 40 percent leased. Advertising company GroupM has taken 700,000 square feet and will start moving in July 16, Valverde said. Management consulting firm McKinsey & Co. has leased 185,000 square feet and will move in next year. "The whole downtown area of New York City we believe is really changing," said Carlos Valverde, a Silverstein Properties vice president who has supervised construction of the building. "We're seeing one, an influx of residents moving into downtown. Sixty-thousand more people moving in downtown since 9/11. We also have a huge, creative, young community. The average age for the GroupM employees, which is our anchor tenant here, is 28- years-old. So it's not your grandfather's Wall Street anymore. It's a brand new lively Wall Street." The building is the first skyscraper in the world to have an annealed glass exterior, with 10,000 glass panels that have been cooled slowly to reduce internal stress, meaning the glass won't break into shards if it is struck. The completion of the $2.7 billion 3 World Trade comes after years of legal fights between developer Larry Silverstein, his insurers, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the land, and the Sept. 11 victims' family members who wanted the entire trade center site to be preserved as a memorial to their loved ones. Silverstein, now 87, thought he had gotten "the brass ring" when he signed a 99-year lease on the trade center in July 2001. Two planes piloted by terrorists destroyed the trade center six weeks later.

'Arrested Development’ stars support Jeffrey Tambor during one of the actor's first public appearanc
 
05:28
(18 May 2018) 'ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT' STARS SUPPORTS JEFFREY TAMBOR DURING THE SERIES' SEASON FIVE PREMIERE The creator and executive producer of "Arrested Development" acknowledges that some people will not like his decision to keep actor Jeffrey Tambor in the show after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced last October.    "Good people will find this offensive," explained Mitchell Hurwitz. "I too get worked up when I hear about Harvey Weinstein and other people who have taken advantage of people. But I also believe very strongly that we don't want to live in a world where accusations ruin people's lives. We have tried that as a human race and it doesn't always, doesn't work out great, you know? So accusations are very different than proof and, you know, we obviously are going to support people that haven't done, that haven't been proved guilty." Hurwitz said production was nearly wrapped on season five when news broke of the allegations made by Tambor's former assistant and an actress on his other show, "Transparent." "Not only do I support him as a friend, but I've known him for 20 years. I've worked with him for 20 years and I've never seen any behavior like that described. I've never, even in private he's never been in any way inappropriate about, we don't talk about women or objectify. It's just not who he is and he's a lot of things that I'd like to list, a lot of really bad qualities I'd like to list for you now, but nowhere in there, in my experience, is any kind of creep," said Hurwitz. The "Arrested Development" cast unanimously supported the 73-year-old actor at the Los Angeles premiere for the cult comedy's new season. The event also marked one of the first public appearances for Tambor in recent months. "It's great to have everybody. No, it's great to have everybody here, you know? We are a family and it's great to have everybody in the family here," said co-star Will Arnett. Tambor denies the misconduct claims that led to his firing on Amazon's "Transparent" earlier this year. His "Arrested Development" co-stars said they could only speak to their own experiences with the Emmy-winning actor.    "All I know about is 'Arrested Development' and he's always just been incredible with us and I'm really looking forward to seeing him tonight," Jason Bateman said on his was into the screening. "My experience with Jeffrey has been nothing but respectful," echoed Tony Hale. "And he is such a funny man. He's so talented and he's an integral part of the show and just my experience has been nothing but respectful. I was not, I don't have information on that other… But like, if I'm speaking from my perspective, it's been nothing but respectful." Tambor posed for photos with his wife Kasia Ostlun but did not do interviews with the press. Actor-comedian David Cross was one of the first "Arrested Development" stars to speak out publicly in support of Tambor.   "I'll say what I've said before, I've said my piece. I stand by it. I support him as a friend and a person. I don't condone any of those, that kind of behavior, but I support my friend," Cross said on the red carpet. "Love Jeffrey!" said Portia de Rossi. "I've always loved Jeffrey and we support him and adore him and, yeah, he's terrific." When asked about Tambor remaining in season five, Jessica Walter, who plays his wife, simply said, "The family is the family. You can't cut anybody out nor would we ever want to. It is what it is."

Water level drops dramatically in Iraq's Tigris river
 
02:13
(3 Jun 2018) Water levels in Iraq's river Tigris have dropped dramatically in the past two days following a decrease in supply out of Turkey. The Iraqi Ministry of Water blamed the shortage on Turkey filling up the newly built Ilisu Dam, close to where the Tigris flows into Iraq. The director of Mosul Dam in Iraq told Iraqi Kurdish television, Channel Kurdistan 24, the amount of water coming from Turkey has decreased by 50 percent. The Tigris is one of two major rivers in Iraq, providing water to millions of people in the country's central and southern cities, and also irrigating many of its main farmlands.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani arrives for two-day visit in Switzerland
 
02:09
(2 Jul 2018) Iranian President Hassan Rouhani arrived in Switzerland on Monday ahead of talks expected to focus on salvaging the Iran nuclear deal after the Trump administration's pulled out. Rouhani was met by Swiss President Alain Berset at the airport in Zurich. It is the start of a two-day visit to the neutral Alpine nation for deal-signings, talks and a news conference on Tuesday. Since 1980, shortly after Iran's Islamic Revolution, Switzerland has held the "protecting power mandate" on behalf of the United States in Iran. It recently became an intermediary between Iran and regional rival Saudi Arabia. Rouhani is leaving Iran just as protests have erupted in the country's south, and Trump said he got Saudi Arabia to agree to increasing oil production - which could lower the price of oil, possibly impacting Iran's economy.

Jennifer Garner returns to the action genre with 'Peppermint'
 
01:41
(25 Apr 2018) JENNIFER GARNER RETURNS TO THE ACTION GENRE WITH 'PEPPERMINT' Jennifer Garner says her latest film strikes a good balance between action and drama. Speaking at Cinemacon in Las Vegas on Tuesday (24 APRIL 2018), where she's promoting "Peppermint," Garner said that balance was down to the film's director Pierre Morel, who previously helmed 2008 action hit "Taken." "If you're just doing action and you're kind of running around killing people, then it just, you know, it's all gratutious and it's not, you know, it feels flimsy. This, the drama was every bit as strong as the action and I was in that great solid hands when Pierre Morel," said Garner. "I knew that he understood that balance and he understood both sides of the equation." In the film, Garner plays a mother who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. With nothing to lose, she sets out to deliver her own personal brand of justice. It's a revenge thriller that is action-packed, which the 46-year-old star - who previously showed off her action chops in 2005's "Elektra" - prepared "almost every day" for. "I did Body by Simone which is a dance cardio and weight training and that was the main workout that I did," said Garner.  "And then otherwise, I boxed, I did martial arts I did... I was with Valerie Waters. You know, it was kind of all over the place." By the time it came to filming, Garner said she "felt really ready for it." "I trained really hard and I have, you know, my stunt double and I have worked together almost 20 years. She's like a sister - Shauna Duggins. And so to get to train with her and to go back to being part of the stunt community was awesome." "Peppermint" is set to be released in the U.S. on 7 September 2018.

Turkey to restore Ottoman-era island buildings
 
03:33
(28 Dec 2017) LEAD IN: Turkey will restore Ottoman-era buildings on Suakin Island in Sudan. But its president has denied they will also construct a naval base in the port city. STORY-LINE: Suakin Island sits in the waters of the Red Sea, part of the port city of Saukin in north-east Sudan. The little patch of land has a rich history but its ancient buildings have decayed in recent times. But a new deal with Turkey is set to breathe new life into the area. The foreign power plans to restore the Ottoman-era ruins - though it denies reports it will also construct a naval base here. Shenqrai Ibrahim, a history researcher, says the city is one of the oldest in Sudan and even has some supernatural tales attached to it. "They said that it was from the time of our master Solomon and he was jailing the genie, so the name of Suakin came from the word 'sawajen' (which means jails)," he explains. It is not the first time Suakin has experienced Turkish influence - it was conquered by Ottoman sultan Selim I in the 16th century. It was on the route of the slave trade and was an important hub for merchants. It was once Sudan's main port - a title now taken by Port Sudan, 50 kilometres (31 miles) north. The British Army also entered the city during the 1800s. Buildings on Saukin Island were constructed from coral harvested in the area. But now they are in disrepair and the island is largely abandoned. Local politicians hope the island will soon be restored to the heady heights of those glory days. "We are expecting a kick-start to tourism on the island, and there will be the biggest marina for tourist yachts and for receiving tourists who are interested in diving, entertainment and resorts," says Khaled Sadan, the Suakin Governor. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has denied that his country is constructing a naval base here. Asked about reports that Turkey would build a naval base at Suakin, Erdogan told a group of journalists on his return from an Africa visit that included Sudan: "There is no such thing as a military port."

Giant panda cub makes her first media appearance at Malaysian zoo
 
03:19
(26 May 2018) A baby panda born in a Malaysian zoo five months ago made her public debut on Saturday. The female, which has not yet been named, is the second offspring of giant pandas Liang Liang and Xing Xing, both of which have been on a 10-year loan to Malaysia since 2014. The first cub, a female called Nuan Nuan born in August 2015, was sent back to China last November as part of a deal with Beijing to return cubs born in captivity at age 2. Members of the media watched and filmed the cub in an air-conditioned enclosure at the national zoo through a glass shield. Zoologists said the healthy cub weighs 9 kilogrammes (19.8 pounds) and will face the public later on Saturday following its appearance to the media. Zoo officials say the baby panda's parents broke the world record for a second baby in four years via natural reproduction. Malaysia's national zoo has invested hundreds of thousands of (US) dollars on a panda complex including bamboo trees mimicking their natural habitat, after China loaned the cub's parents to mark 40 years of diplomatic relations with Malaysia. According to WWF (World Wild Fund for Nature), there are 1,864 giant pandas in the wild, living mainly in bamboo forests high in the mountains of western China and subsisting almost entirely on bamboo.

On NYFCC red carpet, winners show plan to show solidarity for sexual misconduct victims at Golden Gl
 
05:16
(4 Jan 2018) ON NYFCC RED CARPET, WINNERS SHOW PLAN TO SHOW SOLIDARITY FOR SEXUAL MISCONDUCT VICTIMS AT GOLDEN GLOBES When it comes to wearing black for solidarity at this year's Golden Globes, Saoirse Ronan says that's the plan for her, Greta Gerwig was non-committal, and if Tiffany Haddish might wear nothing at all. Ronan, Gerwig, and Haddish shared their plans on the red carpet for New York Film Critic Circle Awards Wednesday (3 JAN. 2018) in New York. Many attendees at this Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony plan to wear black, in support of the victims of the sexual misconduct scandal currently plaguing the film industry. Ronan was awarded Best Actress by the NYFCC for her performance in "Lady Bird." She has also been nominated for a Golden Globe for that role, and intends to wear black to the ceremony. "Yes, yep, that's the plan and yeah, it's exciting and I think it will just send a really sort of strong message and it will start the year in a more unified way." Ronan said. Her director Greta Gerwig took home the award for best director. She's nominated at Sunday's Golden Globes for writing the screenplay to "Lady Bird." While Gerwig supports the victims, she was more guarded when it came to disclosing the color of her attire for Sunday night. "I'm going to let that moment be its own moment when we're there. But I'm very excited about the solidity that's come together and I'm really moved by the Time's Up movement," Gerwig said. Then there's Tiffany Haddish. The NYFCC awarded her with the supporting actress honor for "Girls Trip." The Globes were not as kind, so she will not be at the ceremony. But the actress and comedienne may check out some of the post-show celebrations. "I will be on a plane, probably asleep on my way home. I've got three shows to do after this in three different cities, so I'll probably be in a coma. Now I have been invited to some parties, though. So if I get five-hour energy drink in me, your girl might go to the party. But I think I'm going to be asleep." When asked if she planned on wearing black on the night, Haddish joked: "No, I'm going be naked. That's how I sleep." The Time's Up movement was started January to address inequality and injustice in the workplace which has kept underrepresented groups from reaching their full potential. And it's not just women that are part of the movement. Best actor winner Timothee Chalamet said he will support the victims on Sunday with his attire. "It's wearing black and being in a position of support, and an ally, and making sure the conversation moves forward, and - and feeling like it's an honor to be a part of this new wave and new generation of show business that's way more conscientious about these things," Chalamet said. The "Call Me By Your Name" star has been picking up accolades this awards season, including a Golden Globe nomination. Best supporting actor winner Willem Dafoe isn't sure how the flurry of sexual misconduct allegations will change the industry, but he feels the keeping the conversation alive is a good start. "I'm glad that the discussion goes on. Hopefully it will take us to a better place where there's more equality and more justice," Dafoe said. Dafoe took home the NYFCC award for his performance as the manager of the residential motel in the low-budget indy film, "The Florida Project." "I was just saying I don't measure the size of the project. I look at the filmmaker a lot. Sean Baker is someone that I've admired, and when he wanted to talk to me and I read a beautiful script - and he told me how he wanted to shoot the film, shooting in an actual motel with people living there that reflected the situation that we were telling in the story, I was in, you know," Dafoe said. And she was not alone.

EU leader Juncker stumbles, loses balance several times ahead of NATO dinner
 
03:36
(12 Jul 2018) If the NATO summit was tough on the dozens of leaders attending, it appears to have been even tougher on European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. The European Union leader was seen stumbling and losing his balance several times ahead of a gala dinner late Wednesday. Juncker was stumbling and swaying to the extent that the presidents of Finland and Ukraine, among others, had to help keep him upright. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte also stepped in to guide Juncker. Juncker has said he suffers from sciatica that sometimes affects his movements, and Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said Thursday that Juncker had complained of back pain. Juncker's office declined to comment, citing privacy concerns. Leaders of European institutions were invited to join the NATO leaders for a meeting and a dinner on Wednesday night.

At star-studded opening, Tina Fey says it’s ‘unfortunate’ that her Broadway musical ‘Mean Girls’ is
 
06:02
(9 Apr 2018) AT STAR-STUDDED OPENING, TINA FEY SAYS IT'S 'UNFORTUNATE' THAT HER BROADWAY MUSICAL 'MEAN GIRLS' IS SO TIMELY BECAUSE OF BULLYING Tina Fey had no idea "Mean Girls" would be timelier today than it was 14 years ago, and that makes her a little uneasy. "It's unfortunate that it does," Fey said. The Emmy-winning actress and writer made the comments at the opening night party for the Broadway musical, "Mean Girls" Sunday (8 APRIL 2018) in New York. She was referring to an increase in bullying that goes on beyond high school through social media. "When the movie was written, it was about relational aggression among girls and now, that behavior - everyone does that, right?  The government do it, through to...  People are unkind.  They don't respect each other's basic human dignity, and so social media is such a disease, right?  So it feels like it's (an) even more timely reminder now that we all need to just kind of take a breath before we hurt each other," Fey said. Fey wrote the book for the show with her husband, Jeff Richmond, who composed the music. Fey also addressed the notion of whether the musical has a greater message for empowering young women than the movie. She's not sure that it does; rather she claims it's less about the words she wrote, and more about the way actors are delivering them. "The core message is the same, but I think nothing pulls it out like singing," Fey said. Richmond agrees, saying you can go to different emotional places through music. "Yeah, I think that you can use songs to get into some emotional places that maybe sometimes you can dig into as much in a movie.  There are other things in a musical that you can't dig into like you can in the movie, but I think this emotional thing, you certainly can.  And I think that that rings true with those moments," Richmond said. Like the film, the musical tells the story of a Cady Heron, a teenage girl who grew up in Africa and ends up in a suburban high school.  There, she quickly learns the cruel nature of being popular.  Though it's a comedy, it depicts the clique mentality and the negative effect it has on self-esteem. Before the opening night performance, a star-studded guest list walked the pink carpet.  Glenn Close, Jerry Seinfeld, Alec Baldwin and Lorne Michaels posed for photographers. Then there was her former colleague and friend, Jimmy Fallon.  He counts himself as a super fan. "So excited about this.  It's real, it's happening.  It's so cool," Fallon said. The late-night host held up a copy of his Playbill, and shared details of time spent with Fey and Richmond. "You know, it's funny, I used to go to Tina and Jeff's house and they would play piano and they'd play Broadway songs and now the fact that Jeff is composed and Tina has written a show, he's part of the songbook.  It's just a cool vibe.  And they're great, and they're New Yorkers.  This couldn't be a bigger night.  I'm so happy for them," Fallon said. As for the timeliness of the show in light of cyber-bullying, Fallon says Fey always knows the right time. "Everything Tina does is at the right time, so I'm assuming this will be very timely," he said. Lorne Michaels, who also produced the film version, says it's hard to know the social significance of a project when you start out. ""You never know when the right time is going to, you know - when it's going to be the right time, but I think that there is something in that, in the form of musical comedy which is sort of what this is.  I mean, it has its serious side, but it's mostly - it's mostly fun.  And it just sort of, it just kept changing and changing," Michaels said. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" star Elle Kemper agrees the show is timely when it comes to bullying, but she's also optimistic.

Country singer Kip Moore makes wish come true for teen at ACMs
 
04:19
(17 Apr 2018) KIP MOORE MAKES TEEN'S WISH COME TRUE Country singer Kip Moore made a 15-year-old girl's wish come true when he treated her to an all-star weekend in Las Vegas hanging out with country stars and walking with red carpet at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Moore partnered with the organization Make-A-Wish Foundation that helps provide experiences and trips for critically ill children for this year's ACM Awards on Sunday (15 APRIL 2018) in Las Vegas. Sydney, a teen from Texas, got a call from Moore recently inviting her to be his guest to the ACM Awards. On Friday, the two met backstage at one of Moore's shows in Las Vegas. "The beauty of my job is the things that I get to do on a direct impact level that had it not been for music, I would not be able to do that," Moore said backstage. "I do a lot of things under the table that nobody gets to hear about. I've always felt like my job, even before music, but now even more so is just caring about humanity. And especially for people like Sydney where every day is a different kind of battle, things that we take for granted. So we got in touch with her mom and we were like, we want to do something cool for Sydney. So we're inviting her out here to hang out with us and try to give her something special." The two hung out before his concert on Friday, then she got a sneak peek at the award show rehearsals on Saturday. Moore, whose sister is paralyzed, said this experience was very meaningful for him as well. "Those are the best moments for me," Moore said. "I feel like that's everybody job is to take care of each other. And so I try to do that in my daily life, is just take care of your fellow man, you know?" On Sunday Moore escorted Sydney, who was wearing a gold dress, down the carpet and posed for pictures and the cameras. "I am just going to hang out with her," Moore said. "I am just going to be real with her. And just tell her how much I look up to her."

Various aerial footage of lava flow and fissure eruptions from Puna area of Kilauea volcano STORYLINE: The Hawaii Army National Guard captured night aerial shots of lava flowing and fissures erupting from the Kilauea volcano along the lower Puna area of Big Island. Scientists say sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano have more than doubled since the current eruption began. The increase reported Tuesday could boost volcanic smog, known as vog, but trade winds are currently carrying most of the gas offshore. The U.S. Geological Survey says the volcano is belching 15,000 tons of sulfur dioxide each day from vents.

‘Riverdale’ stars nominate cast's class clown, best dressed and teacher's pet
 
03:10
(10 Aug 2018) 'RIVERDALE' STARS NOMINATE CAST'S CLASS CLOWN, BEST DRESSED AND TEACHER'S PET Getting the entire cast together at Comic-Con was much like a class reunion for the stars of The CW's teen drama "Riverdale." And, as actors Skeet Ulrich and Madchen Amick explained, their Hollywood class comes complete with their very own yearbook superlatives. "Class clown?" pondered Amick before nominating Cole Sprouse, who plays emo bad boy Jughead Jones. Ulrich voted co-star Casey Cott as the funniest of the bunch. "That's true! ... He's wearing high white socks today. So he gets it!" added Amick of Cott. Speaking of fashion, Amick nominated Camila Mendes as the cast's best dressed. "Cami always has this cool little edge that I like," Amick said. Ulrich added: "Yeah, Lili (Reinhart) looks beautiful today, too." "Riverdale" is based on the characters of Archie Comics, living in a small town called Riverdale, which is often dark and gritty beneath its perfect image. Reinhart stars as girl-next-door Betty Cooper and Mendes plays her best friend Veronica Lodge. Amick's first pick for the title of teacher's pet was Madelaine Petsch, who plays high-maintenance troublemaker Cheryl Blossom. But the pair settled on actor KJ Apa, who plays loveable Archie Andrews. "I think KJ (Apa) would kind of be the teacher's pet, yeah," said Ulrich. "He is petable." "Oh that's true! That's true. Good boy," agreed Amick. Ulrich gave the final title, valediction, to Amick, his onscreen on-again, off-again love.   "Why, thank you! I think I had it back in the day and Alice (Cooper) still carries that to date," said Amick. "She'll wear any crown she can get a hold of," Ulrich joked of Amick's character Alice Cooper. "Riverdale" returns to The CW in October.

Syrian army shows recently retaken area in border area
 
04:57
(9 Aug 2018) LEADIN: The Syrian government has allowed journalists into a border area of Daraa province after fighting IS for control of the region. The offensive was part of a wider campaign to capture territory close to the border with Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. STORYLINE: Standing guard at the southern Yarmouk basin. This area was controlled by the Islamic State group until Syrian government forces captured it last week. The advance was part of a wide offensive in the country's south where Syrian troops took control of all areas along the border with Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The militants were driven from the region with the help of Russian airpower. And now the Syrian government has brought journalists to the Al-Wehda dam to show they are now in charge here. "We liberated Yarmouk basin four days ago from Daesh (Islamic State group) terrorists, we killed some of them and we captured many of them. We are now in full control of the Yarmouk basin," says one Syrian border guard. Their are V for victory signs from the soldiers. But a drive in to Shajara village shows their win was not without cost. Bodies still lie by the side of the road, houses have been turned to rubble and vehicles are blackened, burnt out and useless. Many buildings still bear the black banners of the Islamic State group. One local resident says he fled as a small group of IS militants fought in the village. "Ten to 15 fighters fought here and when I left home they came and took my house. I left and went further down, we stayed there for ten days and then when the Syrian army liberated the areas we came back," he says. Syrian troops arrested dozens of IS fighters in the Yarmouk basin area. The capture of the area marks the latest victory by president Bashar Assad's forces who have been on the offensive with the help of his Russian and Iranian allies.

Celebs like Greta Gerwig, Kate McKinnon and Rosamund Pike recall the brokest they’ve ever been as st
 
05:53
(2 Jan 2018) BROKE CELEBRITIES: STARS SHARE THEIR STORIES OF SCRAPING PENNIES "Saturday Night Live" star Kate McKinnon says there was a point in her past as a struggling performer where she would eat "lentils every day." She did have a bed though, which is a plus. "Not a frame but there was a mattress, so yeah, I guess I was riding high." Actor Patrick Wilson says he struggled to afford the toll to get through the Lincoln Tunnel to New York. "This was when the Lincoln Tunnel was about four dollars if you were a car, six dollars - two dollars each additional axle. That's important because my U-Haul truck had an additional axle and we only had four dollars, so we had to pull over to the little side there and this was all pre-9/11 which was helpful – and go through change and had to give them change out of my backpack in order to be allowed into New York so literally my first trip in New York I was scraping for change." Rosamund Pike says she didn't even have enough to take a taxi. "Everything was walking, trying to save every penny you had and then I remember when I did get a job and suddenly I thought, 'I can afford a taxi,' it was the most incredible feeling." "Lady Bird" director Greta Gerwig recalls driving by a marquee for her big break, the movie "Greenberg" co-starring Ben Stiller, but having nowhere to sleep that night. "It was that moment of, 'There I am!' and 'Where am I going stay tonight?'" Dermot Mulroney says his broke days didn't last that long. His father offered to pay his rent for a year and only needed to do so for two months. "My dad owes me 10 months, but I think the rent was 300 dollars, split like, my portion so I'm going to ask him about that. 'Are you still good for it?'"

UN human rights chief tells Israel 'enough is enough' over Gaza deaths
 
02:52
(15 May 2018) The UN's High Commissioner for Human Rights has condemned the killing and wounding of Palestinians by Israeli troops in mass protests on the Gaza border on Monday. Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein's spokesman Rupert Colville described it as "appalling deadly violence during which 58 Palestinians were killed and almost 1,360 demonstrators were injured with live ammunition fired by Israeli security forces." Colville spoke at a news briefing in Geneva on Tuesday and urged an investigation into the events. He said those responsible must be held accountable.   Colville urged restraint saying "enough is enough." Monday was the single deadliest day there since a 2014 war and part of a high-stakes campaign by Gaza's Hamas rulers to break a decade-long border blockade. The high casualty toll also revived international criticism of Israel's use of lethal force against unarmed protesters. At the same time, the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, condemned by Palestinians as blatantly pro-Israel, further dimmed prospects of what US President Donald Trump had once touted as plans to negotiate the Mideast "deal of the century." The U.N. Security Council planned to meet on Tuesday to discuss the violence, though it was not clear what might come out of the session.

OIC Tourism summit opens in Dhaka
 
04:00
(6 Feb 2018) LEADIN: Ministers from Muslim countries are meeting to discuss ways to boost tourism. Members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation want to attract both Muslim and non-Muslim visitors to their countries. STORYLINE: The future of Islamic tourism is being discussed in Dhaka. Tourism ministers from member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) have gathered in the Bangladeshi capital. They want to find ways to promote the heritage and culture of their countries and attract people to visit their shores. Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina inaugurates the conference. She tells delegates there is "huge potential to develop faith-based Islamic products and services". The conference is being held under the theme "Enhancing Regional Integration through Tourism". Experts say Muslim-friendly tourism has been growing at a fast pace and can be a driver for economic growth in OIC countries as well as the global market. Among the popular destinations for Islamic tourism are Saudi Arabia, Iran, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Indonesia and Malaysia. Emel Cong, executive assistance of Secretary General of SMIIC, The Standards and Metrology Institute for Islamic Countries, says Muslims "want to travel". She says priorities are the right facilities, halal food, friendly people and a sense of safety. With a rising number of Muslim tourists, the demand for infrastructure and facilities designed in line with the Islamic principles is also increasing. These include halal hotels that serve only halal food and no alcohol, don't allow gambling and provide prayer mats. There are also Islamic-themed tour packages with visits to the mosques and Islamic monuments, especially during Ramadan. "The heritage of the Muslim nations is a great potential, so to be able to attract other nations, not only the Muslim nations, we want other nations also to visit these attractive and these heritage places in Muslim countries," says Saeed Ohadi, Deputy of the Vice President responsible for tourism and heritage. "We have to try to arrange the infrastructures: airports, transportations, accommodations, hotels, infrastructures for the attractive places." The conference runs from 5-7 February.

Uighur Protest Against China Camps
 
03:02
(15 Mar 2018) More than a hundred members of the Uighur Muslim ethnic group held a demonstration outside the United Nations on Thursday to protest a sweeping Chinese surveillance and security campaign that has sent thousands of their people into detention and political indoctrination centers. Most of the protestors live in America and Canada and said they are unable to communicate with relatives in China for fear those relatives will be sent to camps. Uighur are Muslims, many of whom say the land they live on is East Turkestan, but the Chinese government calls the land Xinjiang and those who want to break away are called separatists. Protesters say Uighur are being rounded up by the hundreds of thousands and put in camps where they are taught to abandon Islam, embrace atheism and become patriotic Chinese. They are calling on the United Nations to protect their culture and their practice of religion. Chinese officials say the crackdown is necessary to stamp out a decades-long separatist movement and, more recently, Islamic extremism seeping into the region. Hundreds have died in violent clashes in recent years that the government blames on separatist militants. Allegations of widespread abuse in the centers, including unexplained deaths, have been rife but are almost impossible to confirm, given the extreme level of surveillance and government obstruction of independent reporting trips by foreign media. Associated Press reporters were detained for 11 hours by police in Xinjiang in November while investigating the reported death of a 26-year-old in an indoctrination center.

Hawaii lava evacuees grow weary as uncertainty drags on
 
07:43
(20 May 2018) Ed Arends grabbed what he could in the night and fled his five-acre property with lava oozing from a crack in his neighbourhood on Hawaii's Big Island. That was more than two weeks ago. He hasn't been able to stay at his house since. As uncertainty drags on over what the Kilauea volcano will do next, those who were forced to leave their homes weeks ago are growing weary. More than 300 people were staying at three different shelters as of Saturday, Hawaii County mayor's spokeswoman Janet Snyder said. Some 2,000 people who live in the Leilani Estates neighbourhood, including Arends, and nearby areas were still evacuated after a lava fissure opened on 3 May. Officials ordered more people to evacuate on Saturday when lava crossed a highway and flowed into the ocean, creating new health hazards. Lava has consumed more than 40 buildings. Those who live in the remote, rural Puna district on the slopes of the Kilauea volcano know the lava risks. Leilani Estates sits in a zone that the US Geological Survey deems to have the highest risk of a lava flow. Residents are allowed to return during the day to check on their homes. Some 25 miles (40 kilometres) away at the summit, there are intermittent explosions that send ash wafting over communities. It's not known whether lava flows will keep advancing or stop, and new flows are likely. Don Waguespack, who co-owns Cajun Paradise Farms down a hill from where fissures have opened, evacuated to a small hotel room on the opposite side of the island. Waguespack returned, relieved to find his home on his 10-acre property still standing. Arends and his brother Mike Arends, who also evacuated from Leilani Estates, were grateful their houses were still safe.

French artist  Philippe Parreno turns exhibit on its head
 
06:20
(24 May 2018) LEADIN: A major solo installation by the French artist Philippe Parreno is opening in the German capital Berlin. The exhibition converts the whole ground floor of the Martin Gropius Bau Museum into a sound and light installation - all controlled by a "yeast reactor." STORYLINE: The main auditorium of the Martin Gropius Bau Museum in Berlin is one of the largest exhibition halls in the German capital. And the museum building - designed by the architect Martin Gropius and completed in 1881 - is itself a piece of art. But, French artist Philippe Parreno has now turned the space into his own, with a large black pool of water, LED panels and sounds. The exhibition - the first solo exhibition by the artist in Germany - has been planned for two years. A process that the 54-year old Paris based artists says began with him analysing the space. "You start by reading the space and the time when the show will take place. And that's how I write my script," he says. The whole exhibition consists of 17 areas, ranging from rooms with video installations to rooms with smaller drawings. In the room called "My room is another fish bowl" dozens of inflated fish balloons float freely in the space. The windows have been covered with a yellow film, creating the sensation of being underwater. Parreno says that he wants the visitors to be able to move freely through the exhibition without being told what they should focus their attention on. "It is a floating attention. You attention floats rather than being taken," he says. Previous, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei and Indian-British artists Anish Kapoor have created major exhibitions in the Martin Gropius Bau space. Parreno has also incorporated the building itself in the exhibition. The light flowing in through the windows are controlled by large curtains that go up and down seemingly randomly. The whole machine, from the window blinds to the LED panels and the sounds, are controlled by a large machine called the "Bioreactor." Inside of a glass box is containers with yeast and water. The yeast is measured by instruments that are in turn analysed by a computer that controls all the installations. That means that what seems to happen at random, such as the curtains going up, is actually a reaction to the yeast. "This is not just not a very good artist. But this is a game changer," says Thomas Oberender, artistic director of Berliner Festspiele, the organisation that runs the museum. "This is someone that has totally changed the idea of what an exhibition is. We are not just doing an exhibition with him but really a whole new system of exhibiting." In other rooms pianos stand mute in the middle of the rooms, while some rooms are covered with large flickering LED panels. But in the end, all the rooms and works are meant to be seen as a whole experience, says Angela Rosenberg, exhibition curator. "Philippe Parreno sees an exhibition more than just the sum of all its parts. For him it is also about showing synchronisation. That means that everything that is moving in the exhibition changes it, and it will never be exactly the same again with a new configuration," she says. The exhibition opens to the public on May 25th 2018 and runs until August 5th.

Daniel Craig donates rare Aston Martin for charity; confirms he's Bond, but won't say if Danny Boyle
 
03:33
(10 Apr 2018) DANIEL CRAIG DONATES RARE ASTON MARTIN FOR CHARITY; CONFIRMS HE'S BOND, BUT WON'T SAY IF DANNY BOYLE DIRECTS Daniel Craig casually admitted he will play James Bond again, but was less forthcoming if he was being directed by Danny Boyle. Craig and wife Rachel Weisz were in New York Monday (9 APRIL 2018) to show support for the Opportunity Network at its annual gala.  The couple acts as co-chair for the organization that helps students in the metropolitan area get a college education. The James Bond actor feels strong about their mission. "Rachel and I wanted to get involved with an organization that was helping either scholarships for young people, and we found that actually what's happening in scholarships was an awful lot of drop out.  What this organization does brilliantly is it gets students from high school all the way through college into work, and they've got, like, a hundred-percent graduation rate.  So we were just, yeah - we were sold on it," Craig said. In a show of generosity to the organization, Craig donated his 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish to be auctioned off by Christie's on April 20.  Craig said he had no problem parting with the nearly $400,000 dollar sports car. "I was lucky enough to own one of those cars, and I couldn't think of a better thing to give it to.  So, Christie's auction house has just been incredible, and... are auctioning it off for free and every single penny of it goes to the Opportunity Network, so if you're interested go to their website," Craig said. An official from Christie's New York estimates the car will fetch between $400,000 and $600,000 dollars. Right before arriving, Weisz says Craig told her something about the car she didn't know. "It's an Aston Martin and it's his car, yeah...  He just told me in the car on the way here, I didn't even realize this...  They're numbered - there's only 100 of them in the world, and they're numbered from 1 to 100, and this one is number 007.  It's the seventh, so...  Yeah, he's auctioning it.  Christie's very kindly gotten involved, and all the proceeds will go to this incredible charity, Opportunity Network," Weisz said. The organization benefits high-achieving, low-income students find their way into top colleges and successful careers. As for her husband's next role, she admits he will return as 007 in the upcoming "Bond 25." "I believe if you look online it says - it verifies that.  Yes, sir," Weisz laughed. There were rumors that Craig was not returning to the role, and that the franchise would continue with another Bond.  Idris Elba and Emily Blunt have been touted as a replacement.
