          What's Happening With Florida Today? Plus-- A Note From Matt Haggman      Cache   Translate Page      

Politico: "The general consensus among Republicans is that they will lose the House, and end up in at least a five-seat minority-- that would correspond to a 28-seat loss. Senior Republicans tell us that even in a worst-case scenario, they do not expect to lose 40 seats. A prescient prediction or famous last words?"

Of all the senior Republican lawmakers they spoke with over the weekend, "only one made the case that the GOP will keep the House." If it's who I think it was, he was staggering drunk for the entire weekend. Many Republicans expected the House races to tighten up by election day. Instead the generic ballot polls have gotten even worse for them. The last one for CNN by SSRS shows an absolutely massive 55% to 42% preference for Democrats among likely voters. As I've said before, the pollsters' likely vote modeling is wrong because it is not taking increased Latino and millennial voting into account. Polls predicting less than 30 flipped seats will all be off by as much as 100% tonight.




Let's look at Florida. Yesterday's Marist poll shows Andrew Gillum leading Ron DeSantis in the gubernatorial race-- 50% to 46%-- and Bill Nelson leading Scott in the Senate race by the same 50% to 46%. Democrats are very lucky to have Gillum at the head of the ticket instead of dull conservative Gwen Graham, who had been the establishment candidate and who would have dragged the party down the toilet with her. But it's a shame Florida doesn't have any good congressional candidates who could ride the wave and Andrew's coattails into office. Instead, it's a bunch of DCCC-recruited backs from the Republican wing of the party-- New Dems and Blue Dogs. This is the key today: "Democrats in both races are performing better than their Republican counterparts with likely voters who are independents, minorities and women."


Stoking domestic terrorism goes over especially badly with independent voters

Results from Quinnipiac are nearly identical: seven point leads for both Gillum and Nelson, entirely because of double-digit leads for both among women, minorities and independent voters. Writing Sunday for the Miami Herald Steve Bousquet reported on the surge in early voting for Democrats. On Sunday, "Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Hillsborough and Orange, the five biggest 'blue' counties, all reported their highest one-day early voting totals of the 2018 campaign. As a result, on a day when President Donald Trump rallied thousands of Republicans in Pensacola, the GOP’s ballot advantage over the Democrats shrank to six-tenths of 1 percentage point (0.6), with GOP ballots at 40.8 percent of the statewide total and Democrats at 40.2 percent." By Monday morning Dems had a +0.5% lead over Republicans in ballots cast. In 2014 Republicans held almost a 6% lead over Dems going into election day.

So how many Democratic candidates will Gillum's coattails and the anti-red wave drag to victory in Florida today? Most of the candidates are so terrible that it's hard to say-- but even the worst of them are less horrible than the Republicans they're opposing. Donna Shalala, as bad a candidate as you'll find anywhere, will probably beat Maria Salazar in bright blue FL-27 (PVI- D+5) despite herself. Nate Silver gives her a 6 in 7 chance to win (84.7%). Next door in Carlos Curbelo's district (FL-26-- where the DCCC and Pelosi's PAC have spent $7,175,066 attacking Curbelo-- another weak Democrat, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell looks like she'll take the seat (PVI is D+6). Silver gives her a 5 in 9 chance (55.6%). The other Republican-held Miami-Dade seat, Mario Diaz-Balart's 25th district (PVI- R+4) has the best of the 3 Democratic challengers, Mary Barzee Flores, but in the toughest race. Silver gives her a 2 in 7 chance (27.8%) to beat Diaz-Balart. The wave will have had to have turned into a tsunami tonight for her to win.




Silver gives Wasserman Schultz a 99.9% chance of retaining her seat in a 3-way contest against progressive Tim Canova and some Republican sacrificial lamb, more or less the same chance Joe Crowley had in beating Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The only polling in the district-- by a GOP firm-- shows Wasserman Schultz exactly tied with Canova.

The DCCC has 4 other Democratic candidates on their Red to Blue page-- Nancy Soderberg (FL-06, Ron DiSantis' open seat with an R+7 PVI), Kristen Carlsen (FL-15, Dennis Ross' open seat stretching from the Tampa suburbs to the Orlando area with an R+6 PVI), David Shapiro (FL-16, Vern Buchanan's Sarasota, Bradenton seat with an R+7 PVI) and Lauren Baer (FL-18, Brian Mast's Treasure Coast district with an R+5 PVI). Silver doesn't give any of them much of a chance to win. Soderberg 1 in 4, Carlsen 3 in 7, Shapiro 1 in 7, and Baer 1 in 12. Soderberg, Baer and Shapiro (as well as Mucarsel-Powell) are all New Dems. The 2 Florida candidates in red districts with the best shot are 2 normal Dems, Kristen Carlsen and Mary Barzee Flores. The DCCC has spent modestly in a few of the races-- $499,932 in FL-06, $146,362 in FL-16, $868,290 in FL-18, and $694,360 in FL-15
.




Matt Haggman is one of the progressive Democrats Blue America endorsed this cycle but who didn't win his primary, losing out, in this case, to an establishment nothing with lots of name recognition and money but with nothing to offer the voters except that she's not a Trumpist. Tragic waste of a blue seat but Matt has been good sport about it, endorsed her and has been working to help elect her. He agreed to catch us up on what he's been up to down in South Florida. He reiterated that "This is the most important mid-term election in our lifetimes. It’s a moment when we will decide as a country who we are and who we are not. Here in Florida I have been working to help Andrew Gillum, Donna Shalala, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Mary Barzee Flores and Bill Nelson all win. Just this weekend I was out canvassing. But, before this, I was a candidate. I was one of the many across the country who left good jobs to up and run for Congress following the 2016 presidential election. For me, it didn’t go as hoped. I lost to Donna Shalala in Florida’s Congressional District 27. Howie asked that I share a blog post I wrote in the weeks after the Aug. 28 Florida primary. It’s a reminder of the reasons why this mid-term is so important. Why each of us can have a big impact even if we’re not on the ballot. And why, whether a candidate or supporter, we must do all we can to ensure everyone gets out to vote this Election Day to turn a new page in our politics."

Until Next Time, Thank you

It’s been a few weeks since the primary election. Obviously, for me, it was a disappointment. But the many great wishes since election night from friends and supporters has been wonderful. I wanted to write a post and say thank you. And also reflect a bit on the past 13 months campaigning for US Congress.

Before doing that, I again congratulate Donna Shalala on her victory. This is a moment in our politics that is bigger than any individual and it’s critical that the Democratic party take control of the U.S. House of Representatives. We must unite behind her. In addition, we have to elect Andrew Gillum as our next Governor! His campaign has energized us all, and it’s time to bring it home.

Looking back on the primary, my overriding feeling is gratitude. I’m extremely thankful to my wife Danet, who supported me in this effort, and thankful to all of the people who propelled our campaign--  the volunteers, fellows, staff, donors and, ultimately, voters. I had never run for any elected office, yet so many went all-in supporting our campaign. Thank you very, very much.

Our fellows were, in particular, an inspiration to me. We recruited more than 50. Most were in college, some still in high school. Working on the campaign after class or full-time during summer break. Weekends, nights. Calling voters, knocking on doors. They were passionate and dedicated. Now, they are back on campus. At schools from Miami Dade College and Michigan to Boston University and Palmetto Senior High School. At a time when our political system badly needs a reset, they showed what it means to take hold of our democracy. With them, our future is so blazingly bright.

Along with our fellows, what I loved about being a candidate was talking with voters and being out in the community. I loved it. Going door to door on sweltering summer afternoons in Kendall, or Little Havana, or Richmond Heights. Evenings canvassing in Westchester or Palmetto Bay. Unfiltered and alone, it was just us; talking about our community and country. On those days and nights there was no place I would rather be.

Life revealed itself in its many forms on these unannounced visits. The couple celebrating their daughter who was headed to college. The single mom working three jobs to keep current on her mortgage. The middle-aged woman who tried to chat amiably but, after a time, couldn’t hold it back any longer, sharing that she’d just been diagnosed with cancer. “I need a hug,” she said, a tear running down her cheek, which she quickly and defiantly wiped away.

The conversations were always so real--  standing at front doors, sitting in living rooms, meeting people where they are, learning about their hopes and concerns, aspirations and struggles. At a time when Washington has so fundamentally and collectively lost its way, at the grassroots people are making sense. We need to spend more time listening to them.

Indeed, throughout the campaign I often said the best ideas come from the community, not candidates. I really meant it. Change happens from the ground up, and that’s never been more true than today. From start to finish, our campaign sought to stay true to that ethos. Namely, we focused on voters, rather than cutting down competitors as a means to win.

We visited every precinct, we knocked on some 45,000 doors. Again and again, I found a sincerity, thoughtfulness and a belief that things will get better. I always thought we lived in a special community, but over the last year I’ve vividly seen it with my own eyes in one neighborhood after another. Those thousands of conversations leave me today more hopeful and optimistic than ever.

If only our politics can be as good as them. I think it can, but we are going to have to change in big ways.

To me, election night 2016 was a shattering moment--  and it’s what ultimately prompted me to run. I had believed that America would never elect a person who said and did the things that Donald Trump said and did. I believed that America today would never elect a bully, a liar, someone who preyed upon our worst fears and sought to divide us to win support. We might come close to electing such a demagogue, but at this stage in our country’s history we would never actually do it. I was obviously wrong.

The better angels of our nature had given way to our most base sensibilities. A presidency built on hope was followed by one grounded in our worst fears.

In early January, as President Obama prepared to leave office, he gave his farewell address, warning that we can’t take democracy for granted. That it “falls on each of us to be anxious, jealous guardians of our democracy.” What the speech said to me is that, yes, America is a special place. But it’s only special because generation after generation has continually engaged in making it so--  even as there are setbacks, sometimes dramatic setbacks, along the way.

Then, at Danet’s urging, on January 21st we attended the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. My sister Meghan and our friend Lissette went too. It was an extraordinary day as millions around the world rose up. It was there that I thought to myself that this remarkable moment of protest must also be a moment of real and lasting change--  and wondered how to try and live that. It was there that I decided to run.

The reason I decided to drop everything, leave my job at Knight Foundation and do something I’d never done before was because I believed we were--  and are--  at a pivotal moment. This is not a normal election year.

I firmly believe that years from now people will ask about this time, what did we do?

What did we do when a President--  along with a compliant Republican-controlled Congress--  called for border walls, Muslim bans, tore thousands of immigrant children from their parents, bowed to a foreign power that meddled in our election, sympathized with neo-Nazis, sought to use law enforcement as a means to settle political scores, and declared the press an enemy of the state.

This election is our moment to reaffirm and declare who we are-- and who we are not--  as a country.

But, in doing so, we have to realize that this election is about what’s next. It can’t just be about what we’re against, but it has to be about what we’re for. Indeed, while Donald Trump has contributed much to our dysfunctional politics, the truth is that he’s the result of a dysfunctional system that has been spiraling for some time.

We are only going to achieve the change we need if we dispense with the incrementalism that has defined our politics for so long and think--  and do--  in dramatic new ways. And allow new leaders to emerge in a political system that’s long become stuck.

Put another way, it’s a two-part challenge: ensure that today does not become the new normal, and provide a vision for what tomorrow will look like. With that in mind, we sought to run a campaign that actually represented the change we seek.

At a time when money is undermining our democracy, we didn’t accept any funding from political action committees, federal lobbyists or special interests like big sugar.

At a time when so many have given up on politics, our campaign was powered by extraordinary campaign fellows who were the heart and soul of our effort.

At a time when so many are disconnected from our government, we built a field program that sought to personally engage voters in every neighborhood in every part of the district.

At a time when the leadership in Congress hasn’t changed in years, we called for an entirely new slate of people in leadership roles in the House. The new faces in the next Congress must not be just newly elected members, but the leaders at the top too.

Of course, our efforts did not result in a victory. But I have no regrets. After all, this is a moment to take chances. And throughout my life I’ve always sought to take chances by diving into entirely new things; and going all-in when I do.

Whether it was going to New Orleans to write a biography on Professor Longhair (still unfinished). Or moving to Miami-- where I didn’t know a soul (but met my soulmate)--  to become a journalist (where I had a great run that lasted nearly a decade). Or leaving the Miami Herald to join Knight Foundation (where I had an even better run), in which I launched an entirely new program that planted the seeds and propelled Miami’s rapidly emerging startup and entrepreneurial community.

I want to stretch myself, test boundaries and be willing to do entirely new things. Incumbent to that approach will be wins and losses. It’s the in-between that I want to avoid.

Make no mistake, I dearly wish I was part of the Blue Wave at this critical point in our country’s history. But I’m not. This moment belongs to candidates with names like Gillum, O’Rourke, Pressley, Lamb, Ocasio-Cortez, and so many others. I will be cheering every one of them on, and support in any way I can. We need them to win and be good leaders when a new Congress is sworn in in January.

And, each in our own way, we all need to lean in and help. The moment is too important. The challenges are too great. The stakes too high. No one can sit this out.

So what’s next? The short answer is, I don’t know.

I do know that I have many people to thank. I remember when I decided to run, a friend advised that people look at you differently when you’re a political candidate. He cautioned that you’ll be disappointed by friends you thought would be there. But he also said you’ll be surprised by the support from those you didn’t know before or never expected. Focus and delight in the latter, he said. And I will.

(One quick note: Danet and I took some time away after the election. If you haven’t heard from me yet, you’ll be hearing from me soon.)

After such an all-consuming period I also have many friendships to renew, which I am looking forward to doing.

Life is about chapters and seasons. The thing about political campaigns is the chapter ends so suddenly. After such an intense period, it’s quickly and suddenly over. It’s a crash landing. But a new chapter begins. There is power in blank canvases. I’ve experienced it before. It’s at moments like these when you can edit your life and think completely anew. It’s often at these moments when the unimagined happens, when you follow completely new paths and find unexpected success.

I have no idea what this next chapter will bring, but I’m excited to find out.

After the race, I spoke with Reggie, who is a great friend and the father of Joshua, my little through Big Brother Big Sister for more than a decade. Reggie said to me: “You gotta keep pressing on my man. It’s all good.”

That pretty much says it all. Keep pressing on.

          The Midterm Elections Show a Major Shift in America's Attitude Toward Charter School Privatization      Cache   Translate Page      
It's not hard to find news stories about waste, fraud, abuse and downright theft in the school privatization sector.

For years, the policy window for privatizing public schools has been wide open, and what was once considered an extreme or at least rare idea—such as outsourcing public schools to private contractors with few strings attached, or giving parents public tax money to subsidize their children’s private school tuitions—has become widespread as charter schools are now legal in all but a handful of states, and voucher programs have proliferated in many forms across the country.

Politicians of all stripes have been extremely reluctant, especially at the national level, to lean into a real discussion of the negative consequences of redirecting public education funds to private operators, with little to no regulation for how the money is being spent. Candidates have instead stuck to a “safe boilerplate” of education being “good” and essential to “the workforce” without much regard to who provides it.

But policy windows can be fleeting (remember “the deficit crisis”?), and multiple factors can rejigger the public’s views. Indeed, in campaigns that candidates are waging in the upcoming midterm elections, one can see the policy window on school privatization gradually shifting back to support for public schools and increasing skepticism about doling out cash to private education entrepreneurs.

‘Vulture Schools’

It is the wave of new progressive candidates who appear to be the ones who are shifting the policy window on school privatization.

Take the campaign of progressive superstar Randy Bryce, running for the congressional seat Paul Ryan held in Wisconsin. The Badger State recently expanded statewide a voucher program that was confined to Milwaukee and Racine, and charter schools have expanded significantly under the leadership of Republican Governor Scott Walker.

On his website, Bryce provides the usual bromides about “every child deserves a quality education” and “charter, private and traditional public schools can all thrive,” but he then adds the curious statement that “no student should see money taken from their classroom in order to serve another.” What does that mean?

Click through the “learn more” prompt and you’ll watch a video in which he makes a much stronger statement about the problems of privatizing public schools. “We can’t afford two school systems, a public one and a private one,” he elaborates, and he blasts “vulture schools that don’t have the same accountability and don’t have the same rules.”

The example of the school he brings up that closed after head count day, and the owners “moved to Florida,” is a real school run by a husband-and-wife team who abruptly closed their Milwaukee private school, after taking more than $2.3 million of state voucher money, and moved to Florida to start another one.

These sorts of scandals have become nearly daily occurrences in the privately operated school industry.

Schools for Scandals

The latest scandal breaks from Arizona, where the state auditor found that parents who used the state’s voucher-like education savings program spent more than $700,000 on cosmetics, music, movies, clothing, sports apparel, and other personal items. Some even tried to withdraw cash with the state-issued debit cards. The state has not recovered any of the money. But the state legislature recently passed a bill to expand the voucher program, which is now being challenged by a recall effort on the ballot on Tuesday.

Earlier this month, in Florida, the founder of a company that operated charter schools in seven counties was found guilty of using those schools to steer millions of dollars into his personal accounts. In one school district alone, “nearly 1,000 students were affected by the chaos and disruption that ensued.”

In California, a recent audit of a charter school found the married couple who ran the school made almost $850,000 in less than two years and secretly hired people and created positions without approval from the school’s board.

A video from Florida that went viral shows an African American boy being denied admission to a private school that his parents used public school voucher money to enroll him in. An enormous white cross adorns the school’s front lawn. This and other similar occurrences of discrimination by voucher-funded private schools in the Sunshine State has prompted the NAACP to call for an investigation into all private schools accepting vouchers. Around the same time, an op-ed appeared in a Florida newspaper recounting the scandal of a voucher-funded private school that stiffed teachers and skipped rent payments. Teachers filed formal complaints about a “lack of basic school supplies,” academic “irregularities,” student safety concerns, and inadequate staffing. But when the school was evicted, it simply moved to a new location and started the whole flimflam all over again.

In Georgia, a police investigation of a charter school found the governing board terminated the school’s leader, made no public announcement of the firing, and never told parents why. At another Georgia charter school, parents were told to “watch your bank accounts” after 6,000 school records were mysteriously transferred to a personal email account.

In Nevada, an analysis of the state’s charter school industry found they increase racial and economic segregation by enrolling far fewer low-income kids and far more white and Asian students than public schools do. A state audit of a charter school in New Mexico found tens of thousands of dollars have been stolen by the school’s employees.

Some Regulatory Control, Please

One doesn’t need to “cherry pick” to find news stories about waste, fraud, abuse, and downright theft in the school privatization sector. The above examples all happened within the last month.

Of course, financial scandals happen in public schools too. That’s why they’re heavily regulated. But the notion that “parent choice” can keep charter schools and private voucher schools clean and honest is disproven nearly every day.

In Washington, D.C., there now seems to be an inkling to address the mountain of fraud created by charter schools and voucher programs. Prompted by a massive scandal involving an online charter school in Ohio, Democratic senators want the top watchdog agency for the federal government to investigate the business practices of online charter schools.

Their investigations can’t stop there. A recent analysis of states with the most charter schools and the most charter closures finds the federal government dumps millions into these schools but provides little oversight and guidance for what to do when these schools close, leaving millions of dollars in taxpayer money at risk to scamming.

More Progressive Democrats Against Privatization

The endless revelations of corruptions in the charter school and school voucher racket are now what’s driving policy, more so than dry, empirical studies about whether privatizing public schools “works” academically.

You can see that especially in the campaigns of progressive standouts like Andrew Gillum, who is running against Ron DeSantis to be the next governor of Florida, a state that is rife with charter school and voucher scandals.

While members of the family of U.S. Secretary DeVos are bankrolling the DeSantis campaign to push their agenda for charters and vouchers, Gillum is determined to stanch the flow of public dollars to the state’s many voucher programs and make charters more accountable for how they spend public money.

A review compiled by the Intercept of progressive candidates running for Congress singles out Leslie Cockburn running in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District. Cockburn opposes school vouchers and shows her skepticism for charter schools by noticing their problems with teacher turnover and their lack of oversight. At a recent meet-and-greet, she said, “We want more funding for public schools, not less. We need to not take away funds from public schools and give them to charter schools or private schools.”

Another candidate, Kara Eastman, running in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District, says on her website, “We must resist the administration’s political nominees who advertise the benefits of expanding charter schools.”

Among People’s Action’s endorsements in congressional races is Anthony Brindisi, running in New York’s 22nd Congressional District. Brindisi has pledged “to fight any and all attempts to privatize our public education system for corporate gain.”

A candidate endorsed by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC), Dana Balter, running in New York’s 24th Congressional District, is a special education teacher turned Syracuse professor who got the endorsement of the powerful state teachers’ union largely because she “understands that giving money away to charter schools is not the right approach.”

Candidates for state houses have similar positions. In the race for West Virginia Senate 1st District seat that pits Democrat William Ihlenfeld against Republican Senate Majority Leader Ryan Ferns, Ihlenfeld says, “I am not a supporter of charter schools … I don’t think charter schools are a good idea for West Virginia. I don’t think we can afford to allow the private sector to come in and profit from precious education resources.”

Of course, some progressive candidates still stick to the old script of “investing in schools” with little regard to who runs them, and a few still cling to the school privatization cause. But the trend that made privatizing public schools an acceptable if not preferential policy has at least stalled, if not completely been thrown into reverse.

          Inarrestabile marea umana dall'Honduras      Cache   Translate Page      


Sulla marea umana, praticamente una vera e propria alluvione che straripa (mai termine è più appropriato con quanto stiamo vivendo in questi giorni di sconquasso metereologico) che dall'America Latina marcia spedita e inesorabile verso gli Stati Uniti avrete letto vari resoconti. Ma tutti i reportage mainstream sembrano favorire la tesi della "povertà". "Fuggono da fame, violenza, disoccupazione". "Scappano dall’emarginazione, dalla disoccupazione e dalla mancanza totale di opportunità", "Vogliono allontanarsi dal potere del dittatore Juan Orlando Hernandez". "Sono in cerca della terra promessa", "Perché, da sempre, chi ha fame si sposta per cercare il pane". E via con la retorica dell'esodo biblico e dell'accoglienza che ne deve conseguire.
Provate come ha fatto la sottoscritta a farvi un Google con le parole-chiave Honduras e migrazioni e vi arriverà il solito piagnisteo a cui noi Italiani siamo stati abituati da anni e anni con gli sbarchi circa il  mettere a rischio la propria vita, sulle condizioni igieniche disumane, sul fatto che rischiano la disidratazione ecc. Quindi questo fiume straripante e tracimante di persone è un fatto "spontaneo", "ineludibile" e "inevitabile". Soprattutto si muovono di loro spontanea volontà, ma quel cattivone di Trump senza cervello e senza cuore, ha già predisposto cordoni di forze dell'ordine facendo presidiare i confini. Allo stesso modo viene fatta la cronaca sui passi del governo messicano che invia la polizia federale (su ordini degli Usa, of course) per intercettare la carovana di migranti diretti negli Stati Uniti. Come osano? ci sono donne, bambini...hanno fame, sete, sonno, sono stanchi...Dopo tante ricerche mi imbatto nel sito "Vietato parlare" e - toh! - finalmente trovo la convalida ai miei sospetti: qualche megalomane sociopatico col complesso di Mosé (chi sa chi sarà?) sta scatenando tempeste umane più o meno "perfette" addosso ad uno stato sovrano con lo scopo di destabilizzarlo.

Ed ecco la domanda da porsi:  è pensabile che 5000 persone si organizzino da sole per una impresa del genere? E chi sta sostenendo i costi organizzativi ed individuali? Ebbene esistono prove che questi fenomeni non sono affatto spontanei ma finanziati da determinati gruppi di pressione e "filantropici" che sembrano essersi dati un compito "morale" di cambiare globalmente le società occidentali secondo le loro opportune ‘linee guida’.

PUEBLO SIN FRONTIERAS E ALTRE ORGANIZZAZIONI  




Precisamente la carovana “March of the Migrant” è organizzata da un gruppo chiamato Pueblo Sin Fronteras, mentre lo sforzo è sostenuto dalla coalizione CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, che include Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLIN), American Immigration Council (AIC), il Il Refugee and Immigration Centre for Education and Legal Services (RICELS) e l’American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).


Almeno tre dei quattro gruppi sono finanziati dalla Open Society Foundation di George Soros, mentre altri gruppi di supporto sono finanziati dalla MacArthur Foundation, dalla Ford Foundation e dalla Carnegie Corporation.

Il gruppo dietro la carovana, cioè l’organizzazione ‘Pueblo Sin Fronteras’, che significa ‘persone senza frontiere’, si impegna ad infrangere la legge sull’immigrazione per fornire “rifugio” a migliaia di centroamericani. I finanziamenti dietro il gruppo sono sconosciuti dato che riceve sul proprio sito donazioni spontanee con Pay Pal.

SOROS TRA I PROBABILI "BENEFATTORI"

Tra i benefattori di queste associazioni c’è il multimiliardario George Soros che ha da tempo promesso di sostenere società a beneficio di migranti e rifugiati “in fuga da situazioni pericolose per la loro vita”. Egli ha iniziato a gettare le basi per la fondazione per continuare la sua missione dopo la sua morte. I documenti della Hacked Open Society Foundation pubblicati la scorsa estate fanno luce sul modo in cui Soros ha usato le sue fondamenta per far progredire le politiche progressiste e aperte ai confini nazionali e internazionali.

Carte prepagate per immigrati: paga lo zio George con l'avallo di Ue e di ONU. La carta reca in alto il marchio UNCHR


A questo scopo Soros lo scorso autunno, ha trasferito $ 18 miliardi alle ‘Open Society Foundations‘, la rete di organizzazioni non profit che egli usa per far avanzare la sua ideologia globalista e senza confini negli Stati Uniti e in tutto il mondo. Il trasferimento massiccio, che è stato segnalato per la prima volta dal Wall Street Journal, è approssimativamente equivalente al prodotto interno lordo dell’Afghanistan, secondo i dati della Banca Mondiale.

Negli Stati Uniti, la sua fondazione ha fornito finanziamenti per il movimento Black Lives Matter e gli attivisti di frontiere aperte. La fondazione ha anche fornito finanziamenti a gruppi di “resistenza” anti-Trump, ha finanziato la ricerca di creare un’opposizione ai critici dell’Islam radicale e ha tentato di influenzare le decisioni della Corte Suprema.
La fondazione di Soros è ora la seconda organizzazione filantropica negli Stati Uniti dietro solo alla Fondazione Bill e Melinda Gates.

Soros sta anche finanziando programmi per finanziare l’ingresso di “rifugiati” in Italia, Ungheria e Israele. (Ndr: per quest'ultimo, sarà dura). 


IL GOVERNO HONDUREGNO FAVORISCE LA FUGA MIGRATORIA

La carovana che è partita dall’Honduras è anche favorita dal governo Honduregno. Ciò può sembrare contraddittorio perché alcuni capi-carovana hanno accusato il governo honduregno di corruzione e non riescono ad affrontare la povertà, il crimine e le condizioni economiche costringendo le famiglie a fuggire a migliaia. Questo può essere vero ma è anche vero che l’asilo è in gran parte una truffa colossale progettata per fornire ai paesi dell’America Latina una valvola di sicurezza politica ed economica e una mucca in contanti di valuta estera. Nel 2017, le rimesse inviate in Honduras hanno totalizzato $ 4,33 miliardi e costituiscono una parte significativa dell’economia honduregna.




Nell’arco di pochi decenni, i migranti sono diventati un motore essenziale di sostegno economico per l’Honduras. Le rimesse comprendono il 17% del prodotto interno lordo (PIL) della nazione nel 2011, secondo le stime della Banca Mondiale, la seconda più grande quota di qualsiasi paese dell’America Latina o dei Caraibi. In quanto tali, gli emigranti honduregni hanno un enorme significato per l’economia del paese e per il sostentamento di molte comunità e famiglie altrimenti impoverite.

Queste informazioni sono pubbliche ed hanno riscontri documentabili. La domanda è ovviamente a questo punto su che tipo di informazione noi riceviamo.
FonteVietato parlare: ma è veramente spontanea la carovana dei migranti che si dirige verso gli Usa?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


Quali lezioni trarre da questa esperienza a dir poco sconvolgente? 

Che gli Usa, da sempre grande potenza mondialista  in perenne espansione, è a sua volta sotto attacco da oligarchi sociopatici legati alla Finanza che già destabilizzano l'Europa. E' una sorta di grande e grosso prelibato boccone che i voraci predatori intendono mangiare per ultimo, ma che hanno intenzione di voler fare. Pertanto la resistenza di Trump va nella direzione degli interessi del popolo americano. Come va nella giusta direzione voler abolire quello "ius soli"  (ovvero l'acquisizione della cittadinanza di un dato paese come conseguenza del fatto giuridico di essere nati sul suo territorio, indipendentemente dalla cittadinanza dei genitori) che la loro Carta costituzionale dei Padri Fondatori  gli impone.  Provvedimento durissimo, certo, ma è l'unico modo per scongiurare quello scenario apocalittico da Campo dei Santi, che, come dice l'amico Massimo, non sarà mai abbastanza ricordato, consigliato e citato.

When you apparently have vegan superpowers that beckon wild, elegant creatures to come pose with you ✨🕊💁‍♀️ . . With the holidays and the new year fast approaching, you may be considering going vegan in 2019. . Here are my tips! . 1) Do research! Read a book, such as, 'Eat for the Planet' or watch a documentary, such as, 'Food Choices.' The more you know beforehand, the better prepared and proud you'll be to make the change. . 2) Find substitutions for your favorite non-vegan meals. For example, I used to love salmon sushi. Now, I eat avocado sushi among many other kinds, like sweet potato. . 3) Consume all non-vegan items in your house first before doing your vegan shopping trip. This will reduce waste and temptation. . Any questions? Tips you'd like to share?

          How television shapes children's perceptions of school      Cache   Translate Page      

Television has a large impact on children's lives; studies have shown that for every 3 hours children spend in school, 5 hours are spent watching TV. While other studies have looked at how television impacts aspects of childhood, such as diet and exercise, little research has been done on how television shapes children's perceptions of school.

The study abstract, "Too Cool for School: Examining Portrayals of Academics in Children's Television Programming," will be presented Saturday, Nov. 3, at the American Academy of Pediatrics 2018 National Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Fla., documented how academically-focused activities and traits are shown by characters in popular children's television programs.

Program ratings were used to identify the 30 most popular children's TV shows, and two 30-minute episodes of each program were then picked at random. Researchers examined how the shows portrayed school life and classes, how teachers were portrayed (friendly, mean, willing to help students), how the characters approached school, and stereotypical student depictions (popular, nerdy, rebellious).

Overall attitudes toward school were 46 percent positive and 33 percent negative. Teachers were portrayed in a negative light 33 percent of the time, while 59 percent of students were characterized as either "nerdy-uncool" or "socially-awkward." Shows targeted to younger viewers tended to show enthusiastic learners with a positive approach to school. But as the recommended viewing age got older, the overall portrayal of school became more negative.

"Television content can have a profound impact on the psychosocial well-being and development of students. We do not want our kids to approach school with fear or be less enthusiastic about their future academic experiences," said Prithwijit Das, lead researcher at Cohen Children's Medical in Lake Success, N.Y., "Our hope is that parents, educators, and clinicians can get the conversation going about media awareness and support high-quality television programs that get children excited about learning."

Since television is pervasive, these types of negative portrayals may have a long-term impact on the way children view their academic experiences and may impact their idea of academics and school for the future, according to the abstract authors. This study highlights the need to advocate for more positive depictions of academics and school in children's programming, especially as children get older, they said.

          BWW Review: The JERSEY BOYS Are Back at Dr. Phillips Center and Holding Their Own      Cache   Translate Page      

Some things in theatre are eternally predictable. An "I Want" song. A showstopper at the end of Act I. An eleven o'clock number. Patti LuPone's next rant.

Equally predictable: every plot point in a true-life rise-to-fame story. JERSEY BOYS is no exception, chronicling the ascent of '60s pop sensations The Four Seasons.

The story beats are familiar, but they do come with a twist. This time, the stars rise on the wings of the mob... and, improbably, Joe Pesci.

Honestly, that's enough of a hook for me to ask, "How'd it happen?" and I'm not alone. JERSEY BOYS opened on Broadway in 2005, ran for twelve years, won four Tonys (including Best Musical), spawned a holiday album, became a major motion picture, and has toured near-constantly in the U.S. - a tour that this week arrives in Orlando for a return engagement at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

As of last fall, JERSEY BOYS has been seen on the stage by more than 25 million people around the world.

So, is it really that good?

Tough question. My first instinct is to say JERSEY BOYS ain't all that. It's a backstage, jukebox, rise-and-fall musical, a combination that ought to be the broadest, most formulaic thing you've ever seen.

Yet, it surprises. And not just in the sense that the guy from Home Alone and My Cousin Vinny is a key supporting character, though it bears repeating that this is an actual fact, and JERSEY BOYS makes the most of it.

First, it surprises in its willingness to play with structure (while declining to altogether break the mold). The musical is technically presented in two acts, but it's really four - Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. That's right: the four seasons... like the name of the band. That's cute, and it ought to be trite, but instead, it adds a welcome layer of complexity.

In Spring, the band rises. In Summer, they thrive. In fall, they... f- well, SPOILER ALERT. Each time, a different band member assumes the role of narrator, telling the story from his own perspective (though you never sense that one character's view is all that distinctive from the others). It's a defining feature of the show, presented much more effectively on stage than in Clint Eastwood's big-screen adaptation.

JERSEY BOYS surprises again in its ability to stuff nearly 40 preexisting songs into one show without feeling like a greatest hits concert or stopping the story each time.

It achieves that by blazing through those songs at breakneck pace, forcing them into narrative subservience. Only a few tunes are allowed to step out of the story and into the spotlight as a "big number," and the show is smart in choosing which ones get the honor.

This efficiency comes at a price. The story is frantic and hurried, especially in Spring. Critics have praised the show as "energetic," and it is, but it's also hard to really grab ahold of. Some of the characters get lost along the way, especially the women, who aren't given the three-dimensional development they deserve.

At Dr. Phillips Center, there's one more surprise in JERSEY BOYS. After all these years, you'd think the touring production would have a hard time finding actors who can pull off Frankie Valli's signature falsetto. Jonny Wexler nails it. It's not his first time on the tour, of course. (He previously played Pesci.)

Eric Chambliss stands out as Bob Gaudio. The show really begins to spark the moment he turns up on stage, thanks in equal parts to the character, the actor, and his singing voice.

The cast is solid across the board. I heard some grumblings about Corey Greenan's turn as Tommy DeVito, which is admittedly more "Joisey" than "Jersey," but it worked for me. If he comes across as a little greasy and stock-order, all the better. You're supposed to be somewhat skeezed out by the character anyway.

One cast member I could do without? The audience. Yes, these songs are wonderful and oh so sing-along-able. And reality dictates that this kind of show will attract those who wish their theatre ticket were a time machine. But a concert this is not. Believe me, I get the instinct to squeak out a "Sherry baby" all your own, but can I make a quick PSA? Singing along at a stage musical is generally considered poor form.

Given my druthers, I'd axe some other elements too: the French rap at the beginning of the show (painful and utterly unnecessary) and the comic strip graphics occasionally projected over the stage (distracting and anachronistic).

But all in all, JERSEY BOYS is one of Broadway's better jukebox musicals. If you've never seen the show, you oughta see what the fuss is about. (Hey, 25 million theatre goers can't be completely wrong!) Even if you have, seeing it at the gorgeous Dr. Phillips Center is worth your while, and the current cast does not disappoint.

A closing caveat, though: in place of a Playbill (which has been featured for each Dr. Phillips Broadway touring season in the past), the JERSEY BOYS program sports an orange banner that reads "BROADWAY at Dr. Phillips Center" instead. Let's hope that isn't the trend for the rest of this season, which otherwise offers the Center's best lineup yet. The people of Orlando deserve a Hamilton Playbill!

JERSEY BOYS runs through November 4 and is a season option for current subscribers to the 2018-2019 Fairwinds Broadway in Orlando season. To purchase individual tickets, visit the Dr. Phillips Center website or call (844) 513-2014.

          Filippine, dopo vent'anni lascia il cardinale Quevedo. Ma Cotabato continua a essere gestita dagli Oblati      Cache   Translate Page      
Si ritira per anzianità dopo vent'anni il cardinale filippino Orlando Beltran Quevedo, 79 anni, dell'Ordine degli Oblati, arcivescovo di Cotabato. Gli succede il suo confratello Angelito Rendon Lampon, 68 anni, dal 1997 vicario apostolico della piccola circoscrizione di Jolo. 



Manila rimane quindi l'unica sede cardinalizia per le Filippine, dopo la breve parentesi di Cotabato, sempre guidata da Oblati fin dalla sua fondazione come semplice diocesi nel 1951. Gli altri due cardinali del Paese sono l'arcivescovo della capitale Luis Antonio Tagle, 61 anni, e il suo predecessore Gaudencio Borbon Rosales, 86 anni. 
Dopo l'importante nomina di Kinshasa, che chiarisce la situazione in Africa, ora è la volta dell'Asia. Oltre al capitolo Vietnam, dove il cardinale Pierre Nguyen Van Nhon, arcivescovo di Ha Noi, ha superato gli 80 anni ed è vacante l'altra sede arcivescovile di Ho Chi Minh, è oltre il limite anche il cardinale del Bangladesh Patrick D'Rozario, 75 anni, arcivescovo di Dacca. 
Oltre a Quevedo, l'altro cardinale appartenente all'Ordine degli Oblati (che conta anche 9 arcivescovi e 35 vescovi) è Sebastian Koto Khoarai, 89 anni, vescovo emerito di Mohale's Hoek, in Lesotho. 
Nelle Filippine sono oltre il limite di età Antonio Javellana Ledesma, 75 anni, gesuita, arcivescovo di Cagayan de Oro, Sergio Lasam Utleg, 75 anni, arcivescovo di Tuguegarao, e i vescovi di Novaliches e Pagadian, mentre sono vacanti l'ordinariato militare, le diocesi di Malolos, San Josè de Antique, Iligan e Ilagan, i vicariati apostolici di Joro e San Josè in Mindoro e la prelatura territoriale di Isabela

          Adolescente de 15 años de Florida confiesa haber matado y enterrado a su madre      Cache   Translate Page      

EN MIAMI, 06 Noviembre, 2018: Un adolescente de 15 años confesó a la Policía del condado de Volusia, en la costa este de Florida, haber estrangulado a su madre de 46 años tras una discusión por su bajo rendimiento escolar y luego enterrado su cuerpo en un lugar cercano, según fuentes policiales citadas hoy por medios locales.

El alguacil del citado condado, Mike Chitwood, señaló que el presunto homicida, Gregory Ramos, es uno de los “tres mayores sociópatas” con los que se ha topado en su vida policial.

Ramos, acusado de asesinato en primer grado por la muerte el pasado viernes de su madre, Gail Cleavenger, permanece por el momento arrestado en un centro de custodia juvenil, recogió el canal WKMG ClickOrlando.

Este domingo, Ramos y otros dos acusados, Dylan Ceglarek y Brian Porras, ambos de 17 años, comparecieron ante un juez que impuso a estos dos últimos un arresto domiciliario y les presentó cargos criminales.

Según confesó Ramos a la Policía, intentó estrangular a su madre cerca de la medianoche del viernes pasado tras una discusión en la que su madre le recriminó las malas notas sacadas en el colegio.

Una vez que creyó haber consumado el crimen, el adolescente salió de la casa familiar en la localidad de Debary en busca de una carretilla, pero se dio cuenta de que su madre seguía viva y regresó para terminar de estrangularla.

“Entonces estuvo como una media hora estrangulando a su madre, hasta que lo logró. A continuación arrastró el cuerpo hasta el coche y llamó a sus dos amigos para que le ayudaran a enterrar el cadáver”, agregó Chitwood.

Los tres amigos se dirigieron luego a una zona del campo donde hay un lugar para encender una hoguera y enterraron allí el cadáver de la mujer.

Ramos dijo a las autoridades que mató a su madre como un “ataque preventivo”, porque creía que ella un día le iba a matar.

Chitwood recomendó que Ramos sea juzgado como adulto.

          Clero pro-omosessuale e clero filo-islamico: un'incredibile convergenza      Cache   Translate Page      
Il sinodo sui giovani che si è appena concluso a Roma con la pubblicazione di un documento finale incentrato principalmente sulla "sinodalità" - per nulla messa in discussione dai padri sinodali- porta a compimento l'impresa di evocare il "discernimento vocazionale" dei giovani senza parlare una sola volta di vocazione alla paternità e maternità, stato di vita ordinario per i fedeli. La sessualità è discussa in termini di "inclinazione", senza alcuna questione sulla procreazione: un intero paragrafo dei tre sul tema della sessualità è centrato sul "sostegno per gli omosessuali" troppo spesso un eufemismo che si riferisce all'accoglienza senza remore di coloro che si definiscono in base alla loro attrazione sessuale. Sappiamo che una parte significativa del clero ha sostenuto questa aberrazione di Chiesa aperta all'omosessualità, ma, come notato da William Kilpatrick, è lo stesso clero che spesso si mostra pro-islamico. Incredibile convergenza?

Dopo aver constatato che i musulmani, secondo quanto esortano i loro leader come il presidente turco Erdogan, stanno mostrando un notevole tasso di natalità, specialmente nei paesi europei caratterizzati da suicidio demografico come la Germania, l'autore osserva che comunque la Chiesa cattolica non chiama più, in questo sinodo dedicato alla vocazione dei giovani d'oggi, ad accogliere generosamente la vita. Una generosità che consente, tra l'altro, la propria migliore auto-realizzazione ...

Il clero filo-omosessuale ama anche l'Islam

È a partire dalle testimonianze del vescovo Viganò che William Kilpatrick ha cominciato a interrogarsi sull'atteggiamento dei prelati riconosciuti appartenenti alla lobby omosessuale (e quindi, inevitabilmente, anti-fecondità), e coinvolti nella copertura degli abusi sessuali all'interno della Chiesa. Sorpresa: sono spesso anche sostenitori dell'apertura all'Islam.

Così l'ex cardinale Theodore McCarrick. Nel 2015, nel corso di una riunione della Società islamica del Nord America (ISNA), ha detto pubblicamente: "Ciò che siete e ciò che credete sono cose molto belle". E li ha invitati a reagire alle atrocità del terrorismo dissociandosi da questi atti col dire al mondo: "Questo non è ciò che dice il Corano, non è quello che insegna il Profeta, pace e benedizione su lui". E ha reso omaggio, inoltre, alla crescita della Ummah in Nord America. I collegamenti del cardinale McCarrick con molte personalità e associazioni islamiche sono descritti da JihadWatch .

Secondo la giornalista Elizabeth Yore, "Nel mese di dicembre 2015, i democratici Dick Durbin, Pat Leahy, Tim Kaine e Ted McCarrick hanno collaborato con altri leader religiosi nella diffusione di un comunicato stampa congiunto di reazione agli attacchi terroristici a Parigi e San Bernardino. Hanno messo in guardia contro i discorsi "odiosi e xenofobi". La loro preoccupazione era esortare gli Stati Uniti a non limitare o addirittura a non porre fine alla politica di accoglienza dei rifugiati a causa degli attacchi terroristici islamici.". 

Una convergenza di lobby dell'omosessualità e pro Islam al vertice della Chiesa

McCarrick è stato anche uno dei principali sostenitori dell'accordo sul nucleare iraniano, recandosi più volte a Teheran durante i negoziati. Ha anche pubblicato un articolo sul Washington Post per dire tutto il bene che pensava dell'accordo - era il luglio 2015, due anni dopo l'elezione di Papa Francesco che lo ha ripristinato nella sua posizione - assicurando i lettori che bisognava fidarsi degli iraniani.

Passiamo al cardinale Blase Cupich. Nel gennaio 2017 stato nominato primo co-presidente cattolico di una nuova organizzazione, il Dialogo Nazionale cattolico-musulmano. In Francia conosciamo quali sono i più frequenti orientamenti di questi esempi di dialogo inter-religioso in cui sembra essenziale cancellare le differenze per quanto gravi e importanti esse siano. Nel corso del suo insediamento Cupich ha dichiarato che cristiani e musulmani devono cercare di "sostituire le narrazioni di odio e sfiducia con amore e affetto". Eliminate, dunque, le reticenze che possiamo avere rispetto all'insegnamento islamico o alla sharia; in questa ottica, il problema è quello dell'odio e della sfiducia nei confronti di coloro che respingono l'Islam.

Al lancio del Dialogo Nazionale era presente il vescovo Robert McElroy, citato anche come consapevole della predazione sessuale di McCarrick. Ha esortato i cattolici americani ad evitare "pregiudizi anti-islamici" esattamente nello stesso modo in cui, in seguito ad un attacco terroristico a un locale omosessuale ad Orlando, ha esortato i cattolici a combattere contro i "pregiudizi anti-gay che esistono nella nostra comunità cattolica e nel nostro paese". E tanto peggio che l'autore dell'attentato fosse un musulmano ... Curiosa intercambiabilità di responsabili e vittime sulla scala della lotta contro il "pregiudizio" (in Francia, si parlerebbe di lotta al razzismo).

McCarrick, McElroy, Farrell, Cupich, Tobin, sono già una lobby filo-islamica

Ed ecco il cardinale Kevin Farrell, un altro principe della Chiesa accusato di aver "coperto" McCarrick. Fu lui ad annullare l'invito a Robert Spencer, uno specialista americano del terrore jihadista, che doveva parlare in una parrocchia della diocesi di Dallas. 

Non è escluso neppure il cardinale Joseph Tobin. L'arcivescovo di Newark, come Blase J. Cupich deve la sua berretta rossa, secondo mons Viganò, alle orchestrazioni McCarrick - Maradiaga - Wuerl. Un articolo pubblicato dal New Jersey Monthly lo scorso agosto si congratula con lui per aver "aperto le porte della Basilica della Cattedrale del Sacro Cuore alla comunità LGBT" (non dimenticate mai che si tratta di parole chiave del linguaggio della lobby che cerca di imporre  la "normalizzazione" del comportamento contro natura). Lo stesso Tobin cerca di aprire senza remore i confini ai rifugiati musulmani. Lui stesso come arcivescovo di Indianapolis ha sfidato il divieto del governatore Mike Pence, che ha rifiutato di stabilire profughi siriani nell'Indiana prima di sottoporli a seri controlli.

Il cardinale Pietro Parolin, segretario di Stato vaticano, menzionato anche nella prima testimonianza del vescovo Viganò, è su questa stessa linea. Egli denuncia spesso coloro che criticano l'immigrazione, in particolare 'i leader e movimenti populisti che affermano la sovranità nazionale in termini di supremazia culturale, razziale e di nazionalismo etnico". Tutte le parole chiave utilizzate per imporre la preferenza degli stranieri. 

Il clero filo-omosessuale e filo-islamico include anche papa Francesco

Ultimo ma non meno importante di questi membri della più alta gerarchia cattolica, lo stesso Papa Francesco è quello che ha più spesso e più fortemente difeso l'islam e l'immigrazione musulmana. È il leader di coloro che affermano la natura pacifica dell'islam e denunciano la resistenza all'immigrazione di massa dai paesi islamici. L'accoglienza del musulmano viene quindi confusa con l'accogliere Cristo. 

In entrambi i casi, quello utilizzato è il linguaggio psicologizzante degli anni '60, incentrato sulla terapia non direttiva[1]: incontro, ascolto, accompagnamento, il tutto sostenuto dall'idea di Rousseau che l'uomo è naturalmente buono. 

Ma oltre a questo, c'è un altro comune denominatore a cui Crisis Magazine non fa riferimento Se la lobby omosessualista si combina con quella della immigrazione di massa (nonostante il trattamento che l'Islam riserva agli omosessuali), come vediamo nella lobby laicista in Francia, si dà il caso che condivide l'odio comune per la religione cattolica  proprio per il fatto che essa si dichiara vera e necessaria per la salvezza.

En 1594 morían con pocos meses de diferencia, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina y Orlando di Lasso. Y casi medio siglo más tarde, en el año de 1643 la música perdía a Claudio Monteverdi en Venecia y a Girólamo Frescobaldi en Roma. Así pues dos fechas, 1594 y 1643 en las que se nos fueron cuatro de los más destacados maestros de la historia de la música.

          Meet the Solar Bears player who has books written about him      Cache   Translate Page      

Orlando Solar Bears forward Brady Shaw learned to read as a child with an entire book series written by his mother -- about him!

Now, imagine the shock in a classroom full of young schoolchildren when the 26-year-old hockey player finished reading a copy of "Brady Brady and the Great Rink" and revealed, “Yep, that’s me!”

As the Solar Bears prepared for their upcoming School Day Game on Nov. 6, Shaw and several of his teammates visited Foundation Academy in Winter Garden in late October to read to classrooms of young children who will be attending the 10:30 a.m. game against the Jacksonville Icemen.

Shaw naturally chose to read "Brady Brady and the Great Rink," one of the 15 titles in the "Brady Brady" series and his personal favorite.

While most of the stories in the popular book series are largely fictional -- no, Shaw never actually built a hockey rink in his backyard -- they draw their inspiration from his love of ice hockey as a child. Since 2004, the "Brady Brady" series has sold nearly 500,000 books.

Creating 'Brady Brady'

The genesis of "Brady Brady" was prompted when Shaw's mother, Mary, wanted to find a way to get her energetic 5-year-old son interested in reading after noticing a lack of sports-themed books geared toward young children.

“He was always in the basement, playing mini-sticks, or in the driveway, taking shots on net,’’ Mary Shaw told the Orlando Sentinel. “Then, I would drag him into the bookstore and the library and beg him to pick out a book. He would come out empty-handed.’’

She decided to take matters into her own hands.

“Growing up, I wasn’t much of a reader, so my mom started writing them as a hobby to get me more involved in books,” Brady Shaw explained. “She knew my interests were in sports, and hockey specifically, so she was able to write a couple of books and get me hooked.”

After Mary Shaw wrote an initial manuscript and paired it with illustrations from artist Chuck Temple, a meeting with representatives from Stoddart -- Canada’s largest publisher at the time -- resulted in a four-book deal, and from there, the series took off. Even after a scare when Stoddart filed for bankruptcy protection, Mary Shaw and Temple reacquired the rights to the series and formed their own publishing company, Brady Brady Inc.

From there, the series has resulted in a published list of 15 titles in hockey (12), baseball (2) and football (1), all featuring Brady Shaw’s always-smiling, illustrated doppelgänger – with the 16th book in the series due out next year.

That’s you?
 
What’s the fallout of being the inspiration for a famous book series?

As Brady Shaw progressed through youth hockey and eventually made it to the college ranks before turning pro within the Colorado Avalanche pipeline last season, his quasi-celebrity status had become a natural ice-breaker in the locker room and has helped Shaw bond with new teammates.

“[Solar Bears defenseman] Mike Monfredo doesn’t let me forget it much these days,” Shaw said with a smile.

In some instances, it’s a mind-blowing experience for Shaw's teammates when the realization that the Brady they’ve been skating with is the Brady Brady they read about as a child.

Solar Bears forward Colby McAuley was an avid reader of the series as a child and routinely made the book a must-buy whenever his school hosted a book fair.

“I’d get them and bring the books home,” McAuley said. “The next time I’m home, I’ll have to try and find them and have Brady autograph them. Growing up in a hockey family, that was one of the books you’d read as a young kid. Knowing who he is now, it makes the books even better.”

More importantly, the books have given Shaw a chance to connect with young members of the community. He’s given countless school visits in his hockey career, each geared toward helping children discover the magic of reading.

“I enjoy the visits,” Brady said. “It’s a way to give back, and to see the smile on a kid’s face, it make me feel young again.”
 


          Fournier's buzzer beater lifts Magic over Cavs 102-100      Cache   Translate Page      

Evan Fournier hit a long jumper at the final horn and the Orlando Magic came back from a five-point deficit in the last 24 seconds to beat the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers 102-100 on Monday night.

Fournier took an inbounds pass with 1.8 seconds left after Nikola Vucevic blocked George Hill's shot at the other end, and the ball went out of bounds off Hill.

J.R. Smith's 3-pointer with 41.9 seconds remaining had given the Cavaliers a 100-95 lead until Aaron Gordon scored for the Magic with 23.8 seconds to go.

Gordon scored a game-high 23 points for Orlando, and Fournier and Terrence Ross had 15 each. Fournier added three steals, one in the final seconds while the Cavaliers were protecting a one-point lead.

Hill scored 11 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and made 10 of 12 shots for Cleveland (1-9), which remained winless on the road. Tristan Thompson added 19 points and 16 rebounds.

FiveThirtyEight's deluxe House forecast, which includes everything from polls, district fundamentals, fundraising, candidate quality, gave the Democrats a 6 in 7 chance of taking back the House, predicting they would gain an average of 36 seats.

Their House model cast 13 contests as tossup, meaning both candidates had less than a 60% chance of winning, 14 as lean Democratic, and 7 as lean Republican.

Here's which parties and candidates are winning these highly competitive districts:

Kentucky's 6th district: Republican Andy Barr wins re-election with 50.9% of the vote compared to Democrat Amy McGrath 47.9%.

The candidates: Marine veteran Amy McGrath, the first woman to fly an F-18 fighter jet in the Marine Corps, launched a high-profile bid to unseat long-time Rep. Andy Barr.

Her race gained national attention after one of her campaign ads detailing the barriers she overcame as a woman in the Marines went viral, and she raised $6.9 million in individual donations compared to Barr's $2.5 million.

The district: The 6th occupies a large portion of central Kentucky, including the city and suburbs of Lexington. It's Cook Partisan Lean is R+9, and Trump carried the district by 15 points in 2016.

Predictions and polls: The race was rated as a pure toss-up by FiveThirtyEight on the day of the election. A Nov. 1-4 Siena College/NYT poll showed McGrath and Barr in a dead heat.

 



Virginia's 5th congressional district: Republican Denver Riggleman beats Democrat Leslie Cockburn 53% to 47%.

The candidates: Republican Denver Riggleman, a businessman and Air Force veteran, defeated Democratic candidate and former investigative journalist Leslie Cockburn in the open race for the fifth district.

The district: Virginia's 5th district occupies a large swatch of central Virginia, including the city of Charlottesville. Its Cook Political Rating is R+6. 

Predictions and polls: FiveThirtyEight rated the race in the 5th district lean Republican, giving Riggleman a 7 in 10 chance of winning. An Oct. 22-26 Siena College/NYT poll showed Cockburn leading Riggleman by one point.



Florida's 15th district: Republican Ross Spano defeats Democratic opponent Kristen Carlson 53% to 47%.

The candidates: After the district's Republican congressman decided not to run for re-election, State Representative Ross Spano won the primary to challenge former prosecutor and attorney Kristen Carlson. Carlson outraised Spano by more than a 3-to-1 margin.

The district: Florida's 15th district, created after a 2015 redistricting, includes several Tampa suburbs including Brandon and Lakeland, and stretches inland towards the city of Orlando.

Predictions and polls: FiveThirtyEight rated the race as lean Republican the day of the election, giving Spano a 5 in 8 chance of winning. An Oct. 16-19 Siena College/NYT poll showed Spano and Carlson in a dead heat, with 43% of voters expressing support for each.

          These Governors’ Races Can Turn the Tide      Cache   Translate Page      

From left to right: Paulette Jordan, Andrew Gillum, and Stacey Abrams

Most political pundits and insiders are declaring that today’s midterm elections are one of the most important of our lifetimes. As former President Barack Obama explained on Twitter, the character of our country is on the ballot. While national races definitely deserve your attention, the outcomes of down-ballot races for school boards, courts, and other local positions will shift individual communities. That’s one of the reasons we’re highlighting seven of the 36 governor’s races happening today.

Governors manage states, so they can determine everything from how public schools are funded to the expansion of Medicaid to working-class citizens to how Congressional maps will be drawn after the 2020 census. Every state deserves a governor invested in the people, and we hope the winners of these races do exactly that.

If State Representative Paulette Jordan defeats Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, she’ll become the first Democrat to win the governorship since Cecil Andrus retired in 1999. She’d also become Idaho’s first woman governor and America’s first Native American governor. It’s a tall order for Jordan since Trump won the state by a 32-point margin in 2016, but, as the New York Times points out, she’s part of a wave of Democratic candidates in the West who “can help keep the party credible and energized.”

Laura Kelly (D) vs. Kris Kobach (R) vs. Greg Orman (I) in Kansas

Kansas’ Secretary of State Kris Kobach is overseeing his own election—and he’s been passing laws that are designed to decrease voter turnout. Kobach is the architect of the state’s 2011 voter ID law, which decreased voter turnout by 2 percent in 2012, and has resulted in more than 1,200 ballots being rejected. Despite his best efforts, Kobach might still lose the governor’s race to State Senator Laura Kelly. Though Republicans outnumber Democrats by at least 14 percent in the state, a recent Fort Hays State University survey found that 49 percent of Kansans disapprove of Kobach compared to 17 percent disapproval for Kelly. A lot is at stake in this race: The winner will determine if the state expands Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, which would benefit approximately 152,000 adults.

Stacey Abrams (D) vs. Brian Kemp (R) in Georgia

All eyes have been on Georgia’s governor’s race as Secretary of State Brian Kemp has used the power of his office to purge voter rolls and leave 53,000 voter registration applications in limbo. While the courts have stepped in to halt some of Kemp’s attempts to suppress the vote, his office is still throwing curveballs. Abrams, who would become America’s first Black woman governor, is fighting to the end though. Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, and other heavy-hitters have descended on the state in support of Abrams, and polls indicate that she’s neck-in-neck with Kemp in a state that went to Donald Trump by five points. Education has been central to Abrams’s platform, and if she wins, she plans to invest in early childcare, public schools, and needs-based scholarships for higher education. Kemp, meanwhile, supports school choice, and would increase funding for charter schools.

Andrew Gillum (D) vs. Ron DeSantis (R) in Florida

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum delivered the most scathing line of this political cycle: “Now, I’m not calling Mr. [Ron] DeSantis a racist. I’m simply saying the racists believe he’s a racist.” It was the perfect rebuke to an opponent who has spoken at conferences hosted by an Islamophobic political activists and hasn’t denounced the white-supremacist group that’s making racist robocalls against Gillum. While Gillum has a significant lead over DeSantis in the polls, he’s still encouraging voters to #BringItHome by going to the polls and bringing their friends and relatives with them. If Gillum becomes Florida’s first Black governor, he will fight for gun-control measures, including banning assault weapons and prohibiting those who’ve been convicted of domestic violence from owning guns; push for Medicare for All; and restore voting rights for convicted felons.

Bill Schuette (R) vs. Gretchen Whitmer (D) in Michigan

It has been eight years since Democrats have had any power in Michigan—but that might change today. Whitmer, who has served in the state’s House of Representatives and Senate, was leading Attorney General Bill Schuette by 12 percentage points in a recent Detroit News poll. If Whitmer wins, she plans to stop the expansion of charter schools and invest in universal pre-kindergarten, while Schuette said he’d support a Medicaid work requirement that would require recipients to either work, look for work, attend training, or volunteer for at least 80 hours per month. The winner of this race will also determine if new congressional districts are drawn by legislators or an independent commission.

Tony Evers (D) vs. Scott Walker (R) in Wisconsin

Who can forget Scott Walker, the Republican governor who faced a recall election after he tried to end collective bargaining for public employees? Though he narrowly survived the recall, the stench of it still lingers, and may cost Walker the governorship. Several polls show that Walker is in a statistical tie with Wisconsin’s Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers. If Walker wins, he vows to protect people with pre-existing conditions from insurance hikes, while Evers wants to pour $1.7 billion into the state’s public-school system.

Janet Mill (D) vs. Shawn Moody (R) in Maine

Maine’s government has been split since Democrats gained control over the House of Representatives and the State Senate in 2012. Now, as Republican Governor Paul LePage bids adieu, Attorney General Janet Mill is squaring off against businessman Shawn Moody. Hillary Clinton won Maine by three percentage points in 2016, and it seems that Mill is capitalizing on that momentum: A recent Emerson College Poll of 900 registered Maine voters shows Mill leading Moody by eight points. It doesn’t help that Jill Hayward, a former member of a management team at one of Moody’s automobile repair stores, has come forward about him discriminating against her while she was pregnant. (The case was settled in 2006, and Moody paid Hayward $20,000). The victor of this race will have the power to veto the new congressional maps that the state legislature will draw after the 2020 census.

Sorry I missed Mojo Monday yesterday.  I do like to share a fun sample with you on Monday to inspire your stampin'.

Unfortunately I wasn't organized enough to schedule my posts.  Monday I left very early in the morning to fly to Orlando.  The Stampin' Up! convention (we call it "on Stage") where they will celebrate 30 years and unveil the spring catalogue will be in Orlando Wednesday to Saturday.
Here's a card inspiration that I created for one of the swaps for the convention to inspire you. It uses the bold Broadway Bound Suite.


I felt it was only appropriate for me to fly in a little early for the convention in order to visit Mickey Mouse (yes, call me a Disney fanatic)

Here's a few pictures of the fun.  I'm staying at the gorgeous Grand Floridan resort because my friend Jennifer was staying there with two of her team members and they invited me to join them.  I couldn't turn down an offer like that!





We had a blast enjoying all four of the Disney parks.  
Here's some photos








Tomorrow the convention will begin with Bag pick up/check in and access to Disney's Epcot centre as a special perk for higher titled demonstrators.  I can't wait! 

Thanks for dropping in! Keep popping back to see if I've posted any other news.  Stampin Up! conventions are known for exciting announcements! Also, stay tuned on my facebook group and facebook page!

          Global Stamping Friends - Circle Themed!      Cache   Translate Page      
Happy Friday everyone!  I am so very excited to leave for Stampin' Up Onstage in Orlando this weekend but first it's time for another round of the Global Stamping Friends hop!
Our hop theme is all about circles this month!  Circles can be added to any project in a multitude of ways but for my project, I knew I needed to use our wonderful circle punches!  We have a great variety of punch sizes to choose from but I focused on the 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" sized punches and the new Happiness Surrounds stamp set from the Snowflake Showcase!
I started my project off with a Blackberry Bliss card stock base and layered using Gray Granite card stock.  Next I used the Subtle embossing folder and embossed a piece of Petal Pink paper.
For the circles, I used the 1 3/4" punch and Blackberry Bliss card stock and using the 1 1/2" punch, I used the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper and layered the circles together.  Using the Happiness Surrounds stamp set, I used Blackberry Bliss ink on Very Vanilla card stock and finished with an Artisan Pearl.

          César Hinostroza: Corte Suprema aceptó el pedido de extradición       Cache   Translate Page      

La Sala Penal Transitoria de la Corte Suprema declaró procedente la solicitud de extradición activa de César Hinostroza Pariachi, formulada por el Juzgado Supremo de Investigación Preparatoria, la cual está dirigida al Reino de España.

Durante la audiencia se escucharon los alegatos de la fiscal Bersabeth Revilla y del procurador anticorrupción Amado Enco. La sala acogió también a Segundo Vitery Rodríguez, defensa legal del exvocal, quien sostuvo que no se puede alegar que su patrocinado sea cabecilla de una organización criminal. "Él está teniendo un juicio político" resaltó. Además, argumentó que su patrocinado no fue acusado por organización criminal originalmente en la Subcomisión del Congreso, ni en la Comisión Permanente.

Vitery Rodríguez, cabe resaltar, está vinculado a la Red Orellana. Él fue detenido en el 2015 por haber aparecido en los registros contables de Rodolfo Orellana.

Durante la sesión, sostuvo “que no existen elementos suficientes para acusar a César Hinostroza como presunto líder de una organización criminal”.

Fiscalía busca que no puedan salir

Por otro lado, el Juzgado de Investigación Preparatoria de la Corte Suprema programó para el miércoles 7 de noviembre, a las 3 de la tarde, una audiencia a pedido del Ministerio Público, que solicita imponer comparecencia con restricciones e impedimento de salida del país a tres exmiembros del Consejo Nacional de la Magistratura (CNM): Iván Noguera, Guido Aguila y Orlando Velásquez.

Los tres magistrados están vinculados a los llamados “audios de la corrupción” y desde el pasado 21 de julio tienen una orden de impedimento de salida del país, medida que tiene una vigencia de 4 meses.

          El emisor británico repite como el mayor mercado mundial para Hotelbeds      Cache   Translate Page      

Hotelbeds ha informado este lunes sobre el mercado emisor de Reino Unido en el marco de la World Travel Market 2018. Los datos de reserva de las plataformas del bedbank de la compañía confirman que el Reino Unido se mantiene por segundo año consecutivo, desde que Tourico Holidays y GTA se unieron a Hotelbeds, como el principal mercado emisor para la compañía en el año fiscal 17/18, finalizado el 30 de septiembre de 2018.


Las cifras también han revelado los principales destinos de los turistas británicos que reservaron a través de la plataforma de Hotelbeds durante el pasado año. En general, la mayoría de las reservas han sido domésticas.

El análisis de las tendencias de los destinos muestra que Orlando (Florida) es el principal destino internacional para los turistas británicos debido al atractivo de los parques temáticos. En la lista le sigue Mallorca, que sube una posición en comparación con el año pasado, Tenerife, el Algarve y Nueva York.

Por otro lado, Roma se sitúa como principal destino de ciudad, seguido de París. Ambos experimentaron durante el último año fiscal un fuerte crecimiento en noches de hotel reservadas.

Sam Turner, Wholesales Sales and Sourcing Director en Hotelbeds, ha comentado: “Estamos muy satisfechos de poder confirmar que un mercado tan importante como el de Reino Unido sigue siendo nuestro principal mercado emisor a nivel mundial, por segundo año consecutivo desde que Tourico Holidays y GTA se unieron a nuestra compañía el año pasado. Hacia dónde van los viajeros del Reino Unido, les siguen los otros mercados emisores, y por eso damos una gran importancia a seguir siendo el banco de camas líder en el mercado británico.”

“Una de las claves de nuestro éxito es nuestra capacidad para ofrecer una selección muy amplia a nivel mundial de alojamiento exclusivo en hoteles contratados directamente y de servicios complementarios, como parques temáticos y traslados, a menudo con tarifas exclusivas, a nuestros clientes. Tanto operadores turísticos, agencias de viajes físicas u online, líneas aéreas u otros, se pueden beneficiar de nuestro equipo de alrededor de 1.000 personas encargadas de contratar en todo el mundo que buscan las mejores ofertas a los mejores precios, permitiéndonos ofrecer actualmente más de 170.000 hoteles.”

Mesa redonda hoy en WTM

Hotelbeds participa en la feria World Travel Market (WTM) de Londres, que tiene lugar los días 5, 6 y 7 de noviembre (stand PT400). Este martes 6 de noviembre a las 11:15 a.m., la compañía organiza una mesa redonda titulada ‘Distribution of ancillaries in the B2B environment: challenges and expectations’ en la conferencia Travel Forward, de WTM.

El panel será moderado por Javier Arévalo, Beyond the bed Managing Director, y contará con la participación de Gert-Jan Ruiter, director ejecutivo de Prioticket, Olan O'Sullivan, director ejecutivo de TrekkSoft, Abbas Datoo, responsable interino de estrategia comercial en Major Travel y Beatriz Motta, responsable de hoteles internacionales en Hotel Urbano.

Juntos, explorarán la propuesta de valor de las soluciones complementarias B2B, tanto desde el punto de vista del proveedor (channel managers/plataformas tecnológicas) como del cliente (agencias de viajes online, operadores turísticos y agencias de viajes). Además de analizar las oportunidades que presenta el sector, también cubrirá las dificultades y los desafíos tecnológicos que plantea el rápido crecimiento.

En los Bullets se hizo rápidamente con el puesto de titular, acabando el año como cuarto mejor anotador del equipo, con 13,1 puntos por noche, y el segundo mejor reboteador tras el propio Malone, con 7,2 capturas.5​ Jugo durante dos temporadas más en la capital, pero antes del inicio de la temporada 1989-90 fue incluido en el draft de expansión por la incorporación de nuevos equipos a la liga, siendo elegido por Orlando Magic.4​ Allí se convirtió en el líder del equipo, acabando la primera temporada del mismo en la liga como máximo anotador, con 19,4 puntos por encuentro, a los que añadió 7,6 rebotes.


Permaneció 3 años más con los Magic, protagonizando una curiosa anécdota en la que iba a ser su última temporada en la NBA. Los Magic se habían hecho en el draft con los servicios de Shaquille O'Neal, que en su etapa en la Universidad de Louisiana State llevaba el número 33 a la espalda, el mismo que lucía en ese momento Catledge, y que éste se negó a cederle.7​ Catledge apenas jugó 21 partidos ese año, siendo despedido al finalizar el mismo, pero Shaquille se quedó con el número 32.

Al año siguiente comenzaría la temporada con los Oklahoma City Cavalry de la Continental Basketball Association, de donde pasó a los Mississippi Coast Gamblers de la USBL, antes de hacer las maletas y cruzar el Atlántico para jugar con el Pau Orthez Elan Bearnais de la Liga Francesa, donde en su única temproada promedió 20 puntos y 6 rebotes por partido.8​ De ahí pasó al Aris Salónica de la Liga Griega, antes de regresar a Estados Unidos para jugar dos temporadas con los Shreveport Crawdads de la CBA. En 1997 jugó su última temporada como profesional con los Atenas de Córdoba de la Liga Argentina, con los que logró esa temporada el título de la Liga Sudamericana de Clubes.

En sus 8 años en la NBA promedió 12,7 puntos y 6,4 rebotes por partido.

          The Unexpected #6 Review and Spoilers      Cache   Translate Page      

We've Gotta Get Out Of This Place!

Written by: Steve Orlando
Art by: Ronan Cliquet
Colors by: Jeromy Cox
Letters by: Carlos M Mangual
Cover price: $2.99
Release Date: November 7, 2018

I can actually remember how the last issue of The Unexpected ended. Firebrand died! Her soul absorbed by the monstrous cartoon supervillain Onimar Synn, our plucky conflict engine-hearted pugilist's fate appears to be sealed. "But, there are still two issues of the series to come out, Daw!" I hear you cry. Yes, well, you've got me there, haven't you?  Mind you, this series did kill off three major characters in its first issue. You never know… Anyway, for a series given to bouts of manic hyperbole, the cover is startlingly prosaic in reminding us of what's at stake: Synn must die so Firebrand can live. Right you are. Let's find out whether this issue Synn does indeed kick the proverbial bucket and starts pushing up whatever passes for daisies in his section of the galaxy, then, shall we?


Neon and Firebrand start the issue deep inside Onimar Synn's body. While I'll duly concede that that is not a sentence I ever envisaged writing, I remain somewhat in awe of Steve Orlando's chutzpah here. There's a touch of metaphysical philosophy to the sequence in which Neon follows (how?) Firebrand's soul (what?) into Onimar Synn's "bones" (what?) and Cliquet's art does a really rather good job of representing the experience as something like a spiritual water chute at one of those swimming-themed fun parks that small children find so unfathomably enjoyable. Not for the first time this series, it is fair to make the observation that the ideas are Morrison-esque but the language is all Orlando. A chase turned tug-of-war over the spirit of a fallen comrade inside the physical body of a monomaniacal supervillain is worthy of Kirby at his best, but describing the opposing force as merely a "node" is not really doing the concept justice. That Neon, who is, let's remember, meant to be our exposition guy, doesn't really understand exactly how this is all happening is a bit disappointing too.



As should be expected by now, what follows is largely nonsense. The node is comprised of Nth metal, a 'prison' that Synn would have used to capture Firebrand's soul. How Neon is able to summon the sheer (mental? Spiritual?) strength to pluck a mostly consumed Firebrand (only her ghostly grey hand is protruding from the 'node' at this point) when he later says he can't use any magical power because there's so much Nth metal everywhere is never properly (well, at all, actually) explained. Nor is the reason for the Nth metal isotope, which has been pea-sized and shaped all series, suddenly looking larger and diamond-shaped and, well, very similar to the 'node' Firebrand has just escaped. Don't misunderstand me. There's some moderately impressive stuff here. When Firebrand and Neon encounter the recently deceased Phayde in Synn's bones and she describes them as "his most holy church", there's something potentially quite significant being said about how Synn's followers view him and how, for that matter, Synn views himself, but why Phayde should still be sentient at this point is never properly explained and the fact that both she and all of Synn's other victims seem to maintain a kind of independent consciousness within him does rather undermine the whole notion of 'consuming' souls on which the character is predicated.

While Firebrand and Neon plot a metaphysical prison break, Hawkman is doing a rather impressive job of fighting Synn physically. I'll confess I was worried about Orlando taking on a character who is already being portrayed rather convincingly elsewhere, but he uses him well here – particularly in his defeat of Synn's undead dinosaur-dragon hybrid. When Firebrand and Neon do eventually break out of Synn's body (and, yes, that is as messy as it sounds), the story returns to the subject of the Nth metal isotope which immediately exposes its flaws and limitations. Having released the captured souls of Synn's many victims, our heroes have their work cut out trying to deal with the now critical Nth metal isotope. Synn's victims are not, after all, embodiments of calm and serenity. They're pissed off and their anger is about to make the isotope go "boom" despite Hawkman's attempts to 'ground' its energy with his mace.



This is the same mace which, when it came into close proximity to the Nth metal isotope last issue, turned Hawkman into an angry, aggressive lunatic, but okay. Neon keeps on moaning on about how he can't transform the isotope itself, but Firebrand reminds him that he can transform its energy just like he did in Gotham. Okay. In the meantime, the reality is 'rupturing' which sounds horribly catastrophic but just means that our heroes get to not die but instead travel to somewhere "outside the multiverse" where they encounter a nice sight gag, meet a Tempus Fuginaut and then, eventually, the big bad of the entire series Mandrakk himself. In the meantime, the Bad Samaritan reincorporates himself in north-west Canada in a sequence that would have actually been quite cool were it not for the fact that, back in issue 1, the Bad Samaritan actually died in Mammoth City (which is in New Jersey). Ho-hum.



If you've been reading this series for any length of time, you'll know pretty much what to expect here: a skeleton of a plot that is more or less serviceable (heroes escape villain A, explode item B in the process, travel to place C and encounter villain D at the end); a smattering of intriguing dialogue sprinkled on a much larger mass of either impenetrable or hyperbolic verbiage; obscure references to the wider DC universe; reasonably impressive action; the odd glaring mistake; and lots and lots of nonsense. The thing is, despite its flaws, there's actually fun to be had, too, albeit of a peculiarly exasperating kind. The fight with Synn is enjoyable enough, for example, and, while the Morrison-esque flourishes once the team reaches the Monitors won't be to everyone's taste, I kind of liked them.

Bits and Pieces:

More The Unexpected means more silliness, more Morrison homage, and more ludicrous action. Ronan Cliquet's art works well for this book, which requires a certain clarity and dynamism; Cliquet thankfully provides both. Orlando's storytelling continues to be characterised by an over-reliance on technobabble and characters shouting plot points at one another to drive things forward. That said, there are odd moments of mystery, interaction, and action which mean the issue is not a complete waste of time.

          Comisión acusa al ministro de Salud de obstruir procesos      Cache   Translate Page      

Conferencia. La comisión de salud le solicitó al presidente Juan Orlando Hernández tomar medidas en el asunto.

Tegucigalpa, HondurasEl ministro de Salud, Octavio Sánchez, está ocultando información, los procesos de la institución y obstruye el proceso de transformación.

DatoLa presidenta del Colegio Médico de Honduras (CMH), Suyapa Figueroa, dijo que la comisión tiene responsabilidad porque no ha hecho nada y que sus miembros son parte del problema.

Así lo denunciaron ayer los miembros de la comisión especial de transformación del sistema de salud, la cual es presidida por Sánchez.

En una comparecencia manifestaron: “Se pudo constatar que en el Sistema Nacional de Salud impera la ingobernabilidad, fraccionamiento y el desorden en todos sus niveles, especialmente en el nivel central”.

El documento, leído por la comisionada Amanda Madrid, indicó que el actual modelo de gestión es incapaz de poder atender la demanda ciudadana de los servicios de salud.

Actualmente hay más de 186 mil citas médicas pendientes de atender y más de cinco mil cirugías por practicar.

A eso se le suma el desabastecimiento de medicamentos y material médico-quirúrgico en los hospitales del país.

Los más afectados son el Hospital Escuela y el hospital Mario Catarino Rivas, que sufren una crisis extrema.

La entidad descubrió que hasta ahora se está terminando de ejecutar el presupuesto correspondiente al ejercicio fiscal de 2017.

“Se muestra la falta de capacidad institucional, interés y liderazgo de las autoridades”, puntualiza.

Madrid mencionó que desde el 28 de septiembre le han instado al titular de Salud a tomar una serie de medidas que mejoren la gestión institucional, pero no fueron atendidas.

“En un claro agravio a los usuarios del sistema, un evidente menosprecio al trabajo realizado por los integrantes de la CETSS, una manifiesta muestra de indiferencia, falta de interés y ausencia de diligencia.

Queda en manos del presidente Juan Orlando Hernández tomar las decisiones correspondientes a fin de solventar esta situación”, concluyó.

A su vez, afirmaron que perdieron la confianza en el titular de Salud porque no reconoce las facultades de la entidad, establecidas en el PCM-026-2018.

Julieta Castellanos, también integrante de la comisión, dijo que hasta ahora no han encontrado el acompañamiento por parte las autoridades.

“Nosotros pedimos una información sobre el tipo de medicamentos, los montos, años de vencimiento, quiénes eran los funcionarios en esos años de los medicamentos vencidos”, detalló; sin embargo, explicó que esta información debe realizarse junto a una auditoría externa que debe ser acompañada por órganos jurisdiccionales.

Are you still relying on the slanderous Al Stump stories about Ty Cobb? Or the completely fictional Tommy Lee Jones movie? There is no truth to the stories about Cobb sharpening his spikes (to the contrary, he asked Ban Johnson to require players to dull their spikes for safety), killing a man (never killed anybody, nothing even remotely close - the myth was entirely Al Stump's slander), or being racist (he supported integration, and was from a family of abolitionists including a grandfather who was a preacher who fought against slavery and refused to fight for the Confederacy, and a father who was a state senator who supported his black constituents, fought for desegregation in public schools, and stood down lynch mobs). Of all the "jerks" in baseball, for some reason too many people still single out Ty Cobb. Why not Cap Anson, Rogers Hornsby, or Orlando Cepeda? I don't know of anything Cobb actually did to deserve the awful things people say about him. He certainly does not deserve to be held up as the main example of "huge jerks" in baseball.

          Florida Just Granted 1.5 Million People the Right to Vote. That’s Huge.      Cache   Translate Page      

Even as Florida divided closely between Democratic and Republican candidates in Tuesday’s key Senate and gubernatorial races, voters overwhelmingly supported Amendment 4, a constitutional amendment that will automatically restore voting rights to most rehabilitated felons. The ballot measure easily cleared the 60 percent threshold necessary for passage, meaning 1.5 million Floridians will soon regain the right to vote.

Florida currently has the most draconian felon disenfranchisement law in the country: Former offenders do not regain their civil rights unless they receive an individual grant of clemency from the governor. A remnant of Jim Crow, this rule ensures that about 1 in 5 black would-be voters in Florida cannot legally cast a ballot. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has favored white Republicans who appeal for clemency while rejecting the vast majority of applications. He also made clemency applications more onerous and expensive.

Voting rights advocates furious with Scott’s capricious abuse of power mounted a campaign to liberalize felon disenfranchisement rules through a constitutional amendment. Amendment 4 has consistently polled well, drawing broad bipartisan support. Hundreds of thousands of Floridians who voted for Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, a Donald Trump acolyte, apparently split their ticket, endorsing Amendment 4 as well. Although Republican lawmakers consistently attempt to suppress voting rights, expansion of the franchise appears to be popular across party lines.

A disproportionate number of Floridians who will obtain the right to vote are racial minorities. It is not clear, however, whether Amendment 4 will swing the state left in future elections. Party affiliation of former felons is fairly mixed, and their participation in elections is, historically, quite low. Florida voters who benefit from Amendment 4 will have an opportunity to reverse this trend in 2020. And even if DeSantis ultimately triumphs, he will not have Scott’s power to deprive his constituents of their constitutional rights.


          "Struggle is a never ending process..."      Cache   Translate Page      

“Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.”

–Coretta Scott King ’51

 

Dear Antiochians,

I am the proud director of the only Coretta Scott King Center in the world, located here at Antioch College.

Citizens of the United States have the opportunity to head to the polls on November 6, 2018. As carriers of the King legacy—as people committed to social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion—we celebrate the freedom to vote. We are a college devoted to deliberative democracy and we stand for the right to vote. As Antiochians, we encourage you to vote, and to challenge your extended community to get out and vote.

Just a few weeks ago, we held the Freedom to Vote Rally on campus, featuring local and national activists, current students, and other Antiochians. The messages they relayed to the crowd followed a theme: if we work together, we can win together. Voting is one of the most important ways our voices can be heard. It's a right so many had to fight for, and many continue to struggle to exercise freely in our country.

Antioch College is committed to equality, justice, and civil and human rights for all. We stand in solidarity with victims of hate crimes from Pittsburgh to Jeffersontown, Kentucky, and from Santa Fe, Texas, to Orlando. And we know these and other issues may influence the outcome of elections across the country.

During our Freedom to Vote Rally, I honored those who fought to dismantle barriers against voting—freedom fighters—including our distinguished alumna Coretta Scott King ’51. I encourage you to join me tomorrow as I exercise my right and responsibility to vote.

In solidarity,
Mila Cooper
Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion
Executive Director, Coretta Scott King Center

Fueron asegurados en el lugar quienes dijeron llamarse Orlando, Ricardo y Luis, de 22, 23 y 29 años de edad, respectivamente, al inspeccionar el área los agentes encontraron ocho contenedores con capacidad de mil litros cada uno, de los cuales cuatro estaban vacíos y los demás contenían hidrocarburo; al revisar el estatus del tracto camión descubrieron que cuenta con reporte de robo vigente.

Por los hechos, los detenidos y la unidad fueron puestos a disposición del agente del Ministerio Público de la Fiscalía de Justicia de la entidad, donde se inició la integración de la carpeta de investigación correspondiente.

          Body Language Analysis No. 4356: Donald Trump: "When I can, I tell the truth" - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)      Cache   Translate Page      


On Thursday 1 November 2018, Jonathan Karl of ABC News interviewed President Trump. One of Trump's responses went particularly viral. What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of this interview.

JONATHAN KARL (continuing at 3:49): And finally, I remember, you remember - well on the campaign, you made a promise, you said, "I will never lie to you". So, can you tell me now, honestly, have you - kept that promise at all times? Have you always been truthful?

DONALD TRUMP: (over-talking) Well I try, I mean I do try, I think you try too. You say things about me that are not - necessarily correct. I do try and - ah, I always wanna tell the truth - when I can, I tell the truth. I mean sometimes it turns out to be where something happens - it's different or there's a change - but I always like to be truthful. 


Throughout the great majority of this entire exchange with Karl (including further back in this interview [beginning at 2:12] as the President answers questions regarding the ongoing diaspora of Central American people walking north through Mexico), Trump looks down and to HIS right (with both eyes and to a lesser degree, his head and neck).

Eye contact during deception is an intriguing phenomenon. When someone is telling a lie, the percentage of eye contact they have with the other person (or the camera) is biphasic. It almost always either increases (and thus, often takes on the feel of staring) - or it decreases. Moreover, when their eye contact does decrease, the quadrant to which the liar most often looks is THEIR lower right quadrant (exactly what we see here).

Notice too, the verbal language President Trump used. He never said, "Yes", "Always", "I'm always truthful", or "One-hundred percent" - rather Trump said:

• "Well I try"
• "I do try"
• "I always wanna tell the truth"
• "when I can, I tell the truth"
• "I always like to be truthful"

Such hedging, whether in written or verbal form, are profound statement analysis tells indicative of deception.

In addition, Donald Trump immediately proceeds with the premise that Jonathan Karl also lies when he says, "I think you try too. You say things about me that are not - necessarily correct". This is a manipulative method known as Forced Teaming (de Becker). It's as if to say, "We're in this together Jon - you and me" - and - You lie too Jonathan, everybody lies, but we all try not to".


Now flashback to an earlier portion of this interview. Beginning as Trump says (continuing at 2:31), "... you have caravans coming up that, look a lot larger than it's reported, actually, I mean I'm pretty good at - estimating crowd size - and I will tell you - they look a lot bigger than people would think ..."


From 2:31 to 2:39 Trump displays a combination of a Suppressed Smile along with what is known as a Lip Curl. Please watch the above video - as any still image does not capture the dynamic nature of this nonverbal behavior.

In this context, a suppressed smile is what is a nonverbal phenomenon termed as Duping Delight (Ekman) - which is a form of body language 'leaking' - wherein the person displaying it, is taking true joy in THEIR belief that they're successfully deceiving people. It's crucial to emphasize here that you don't have to agree at all with the ethics of their lying or their motive. Moreover, they may not be fooling anyone at all - but THEY believe they are doing so.

A lip curl (note the outward curl of Trump's upper left lip) signals Hubris, Braggadocio, and Bravado. Trump tends to have a slight lisp when he displays his lip curls (both in this example and on other occasions). This is best exemplified as he says the word "size" during 2:37.

Notice too, that during 2:36 - 2:39, Trump's shoulders elevate slightly as he puffs up his chest (and perhaps elevates a bit on his toes). While not a required component of either a lip curl or duping delight, these additional dynamics add to this particular body language sentence - a nonverbal grouping called a cluster. These extra components serve as amplifiers - of both the joy he has in the act of deceiving - as well as his hubris, braggadocio, and bravado.

SUMMARY: During this interview, Donald Trump is looking down to his right the vast majority of the time - the direction of gaze to which most people look during the diminished eye contact of deception. Trump also demonstrates classic nonverbal tells indicating he takes pleasure and hubris in the belief he's successfully perpetrating his lies.

          Entre o horror e a demência      Cache   Translate Page      
DB do doutor Ulysses foi a frente democrática de que o Brasil hoje precisa
Regimes de ultradireita infelicitaram povos diversos. Para citar os mais notórios dos últimos cem anos vale citar fascismo, estalinismo, nazismo, ditadura chinesa no período mais feroz. Mas de ultradireita foram também as ditaduras sul-americanas, inclusive a nossa de 21 anos, erguida à sombra da típica hipocrisia verde-amarela, a manter aberto um Parlamento constantemente sob ameaça e um Judiciário de paus-mandados.

Mas que dizer da divisão do Oriente Médio segundo as conveniências de Grã-Bretanha e França, e das consequências deste jogo de interesses, entre eles Israel de Netanyahu? E que dizer dos EUA, inesgotavelmente inclinados a usar a força das armas com o pretexto de ministrar mundo afora pretensas lições de democracia e liberdade, do Vietnã a Granada, do Iraque ao Panamá, dos golpes latino-americanos ao Afeganistão?

O reacionarismo tem inúmeras maneiras de se manifestar e impor conforme as circunstâncias históricas. O bolsonarismo é fenômeno genuinamente brasileiro ao representar o inescapável resultado do golpe de 2016, desferido pela aliança entre os próprios Poderes da República com o fatal e maciço apoio da mídia nativa.

Trata-se da prepotência em estado puro, baseada em um ideário digno do Ku Klux Klan e de um neoliberalismo elevado à enésima potência a deixar pálidos de espanto os entreguistas de antanho e até os mestres de Chicago.

Seria possível algo similar ao bolsonarismo em países civilizados e democráticos? O nacional populismo de extrema-direita avança na Europa, por razões diversas das nossas, promovido pelos efeitos do neoliberalismo a provocar o enriquecimento de poucos e o empobrecimento da larga maioria.

A imigração dos foragidos de conflitos e da miséria amedronta as populações europeias e excita os políticos oportunistas. Mesmo assim, ali vigora a democracia, as Constituições são respeitadas, as Altas Cortes funcionam com independência total, até mesmo onde a ultradireita está no poder alcançado pelo voto.

O Brasil, um país em vão destinado à grandeza e ao bem-estar, está a uma distância do direitismo europeu que até as botas das 7 léguas não conseguiriam percorrer. O bolsonarismo é construído sobre o avanço tecnológico capaz de embrutecer uma população ignorante e inculta, ricos ou pobres, tanto faz.

O extremo reacionarismo bolsonarista é perfeitamente simbolizado por seu líder de tosco pensamento e fala manquitolante, herói irreparavelmente brasileiro, incapacitado à compreensão do problema central do País, o monstruoso desequilíbrio social, ou, por outra, a desigualdade.

A Europa deixara havia larguíssimo tempo de ser medieval, quando na Alemanha e na Itália surgiram, por razões diversas, ditaduras totalitárias. No Brasil da casa-grande e da senzala vivemos a treva que se seguiu à queda do Império Romano do Ocidente.

Neste Brasil sempre exposto ao risco do golpe, estamos entregues a um exército de ocupação e a uma Justiça que tirou a venda com as próprias mãos. Um terço da população deixa-se explorar de olhos marejados pelos ditos pastores evangélicos, enquanto os postes expõem cartazes de milagreiros em complexos casos de amor e de quem sabe como recuperar a carta cassada dos motoristas infratores.

Desde o impeachment de Dilma Rousseff, a Constituição de 1988 jaz no fundo do lixo e meus imprudentes botões sugerem com alguma malignidade que talvez venha a ser substituída pela Santa Bíblia. Acima de tudo, Bolsonaro coloca Deus. Pergunto-me se sabe que o Filho morreu na cruz por ter defendido a igualdade entre todos os homens.

Gostaria de repetir o poeta Renato Suttana ao falar de um romance em andamento “que, entre a farsa e a paródia, é só bufa rapsódia”. Certa vez escrevi algo parecido a respeito de momentos difíceis, desta vez, entretanto, a situação nada tem de bufo. Estamos a encarar uma perspectiva de extrema violência tanto mais em um país que aprecia brigas díspares, na proporção de 10 contra 1, o solitário inimigo.

Não sei até que ponto estará a oposição com animus bellandi, vontade de lutar. Se for possível, contudo, formar sem preconceitos uma aliança entre os frequentadores da razão, a concordância em torno do objetivo principal apontará um caminho redentor.

Agradou-me, por exemplo, a disposição de Alberto Goldman, que conheci como “vermelho” em tempos de ditadura e que se tornou nestes dias um tucano capaz de alçar voo ao votar, “pela primeira vez”, no PT. Fernando Henrique, em compensação, não sai do chão. Não fosse a ameaça de Mario Covas de abandonar o PSDB, é bom recordar, FHC teria sido chanceler de Collor.

Erros em demasia foram cometidos no chamado campo progressista para favorecer Bolsonaro. Seria a ocasião de corrigi-los em nome do propósito comum, com a devida bonomia que uma respeitável dose de autoironia há de recomendar.

Quando menino, se eu dava uma de sabichão, minha avó materna sentenciava: “Desça do cavalo de Orlando”. Pois a quem está montado, repito como apelo a admoestação da avó. Ah, sim, Orlando, o desassombrado paladino da corte franca, herói da obra-prima de Ludovico Ariosto, “Orlando Furioso”. Creiam, é oportuno descer do cavalo para repensar em tudo.

Ocorre-me lembrar o MDB do doutor Ulysses, reunia todos os opositores da ditadura. Tratou-se de fato de uma frente democrática da qual nasceu a campanha das Diretas Já, o mais importante movimento popular realizado no Brasil, e sem o apoio da Globo, ao contrário daquele pelo impeachment de Collor, quando ao som do plim plim os meninotes da cara pintada foram fazer festa.

Contra o bolsonarismo, o País precisa de uma frente democrática acima dos partidos, empenhada em chegar ao povo para leva-lo à consciência da cidadania e cumprir a tarefa que a dita esquerda nativa não soube ou não quis cumprir.

CartaCapital está onde sempre esteve na prática do jornalismo. Na minha vida de profissional foi determinante o embate contra a censura ditatorial. Compreendi então em profundidade a virtude dos homens “dispostos a contar o que acontece”, como sustenta Hannah Arendt, a serventia da profissão credenciada a deixar uma pista para os historiadores do futuro.

Não tememos o bolsonarismo: veio movido pelo propósito de impor a ORDEM, aquilo que supões ser a ordem para reduzir o País a escombros com o uso crescente da violência. Aí está a semente do seu fracasso. Inescapável, a curto ou médio prazo.

Estamos na iminência de ver Sergio Moro, o torquemadazinho endeusado pelos propagandistas midiáticos, nomeado para um ministério de grande alcance, além da Justiça, em benefício da ORDEM bolsonarista. Um caríssimo amigo de fino intelecto propõe intitular “A Confissão” este quadro da tragédia suspensa entre a demência e o horror.

Un viaggio nelle carceri raccontato da chi nella difficile casa circondariale di Poggioreale ed in altri penitenziari italiani, ha vissuto come volontario, a stretto contatto con i problemi e le sofferenze dei detenuti: Antonio Mattone presenta il suo libro "E adesso la palla passa a me: malavita, solitudine e riscatto nel carcere" in un gremito Circolo Posillipo. Il titolo del testo prende spunto da una toccante frase scritta da un detenuto in ua lettera inviata all'autore:"Quando uscirò dal carcere la palla passa a me, come mi hai detto tante volte tu".. Mattone descrive il grido di dolore che proviene da dietro le sbarre, spesso inascoltato, che sembra togliere ogni speranza a chi ha sbagliato e che a fatica riesce a farsi accettare dalla società.Il libro edito da guida, gode della presentazione di Alessandro Barbano e della prefazione dell'ex guardasigilli Andrea Orlando.

          Estrellas remontan en último turno duelo de pitcheo a rojos      Cache   Translate Page      

SANTO DOMINGO. Hasta el octavo capítulo el pitcheo escogidista no toleró imparables a la alineación estrellista, cuando Gabriel Guerrero logró un sencillo. Pero los verdes se rebelaron en su última oportunidad al combinar tres imparables con un boleto, un error y un wild pitch para hacer un ramillete de cuatro vueltas e imponerse 4-1 a los Leones en el parque Quisqueya.

Fue el tercer revés al hilo de los rojos (10-9), mientras los paquidermos (9-10) ganaron por segunda vez en tres juegos.

El zurdo Enny Romero limitó a una base y ponchó a seis orientales en seis entradas para extender a 23.2 el número de capítulos sin tolerar carreras. Del lado petromacorisano el rival estuvo a la altura. Néstor Cortés solo aceptó un hit, una vuelta y dos bases con cinco ponches en seis capítulos.

Los melenudos se adelantaron en el sexto gracias a doble por el jardín derecho de Austin Bossart, que luego avanzó con rodado por tercera de Rafael Ynoa y anotó con elevado de sacrificio de Erik González.

Pero en el noveno episodio los verdes viraron la pizarra. Héctor Gómez abrió con sencillo al jardín derecho, Audry Pérez recibió boleto, José Cisnero hizo un lanzamiento salvaje que movió a los corredores, Junior Lake sacó rodado por tercera que Rafael Ynoa pifió, lo que permitió entrar la carrera del empate.

Subió a lanzar Josh D. Smith, que dominó con elevado de sacrificio al emergente Domingo Leyba, pero anotó la segunda vuelta verde. Subió a lanzar Carlos Pimentel, que fue recibido por hit remolcador de Frank Schwindel, luego Guerrero forzó con rodado por segunda, pero en la revisión la jugada fue revertida y Orlando Calixte pegó imparable remolcador para el 4-1.

Ganó Román Méndez (1-0), perdió Cisnero (0-1) y salvó José Rafael “Jumbo” Díaz (1).

          Animación "Disney": 'Maya and the Three'; 'Pinocho' de Del Toro y mucho más... | Estrenos Netflix España 2018 / 2019 | 2020 | Lo mejor      Cache   Translate Page      

2019 será un año importante para los servicios de vídeo en streaming, ya que se prepara la llegada de Disney y toda su maquinaria que sin duda será un duro competidor para aquellos que ya están establecidos. Netflix ya se prepara para este embate con una gran inversión en películas y series originales, además de fichajes de lujo dentro del mundo de la animación.

Hoy Netflix anunció seis nuevas producciones enfocadas en el mercado infantil y familiar, que se suman a las siete que ya habían anunciado durante este año, por lo que estamos hablado de 13 nuevas producciones originales que buscan dotar de contenido a la plataforma para no resentir la llegada de Disney el año que entra, y de paso posicionarse como una de las productoras más importantes del segmento.

Apostando en la animación original con fichajes de lujo

De acuerdo a las cifras de la propia Netflix, el 60% de sus usuarios consume contenido infantil y familiar cada mes, por lo que están haciendo una apuesta importante dentro de este apartado para seguir captando clientes y ofrecer cada vez más contenido original.

El anuncio nos habla de dos nuevas películas y cuatro nuevas series, donde se incluyen producciones de Jorge Gutiérrez, director de 'Book of Life', Craig McCracken, creador de 'The Powerpuff Girls', así como Meg LeFauve, guionista de 'Inside Out'. Conozcamos cada una de ellas.

'Maya and the Three'

La primera de ellas es una serie animada de nueve episodios que llegará en 2021, la cual estará dirigida por Jorge Gutiérrez, director de 'Book of Life', quien contará con el apoyo en la producción y el guion de Silvia Olivas ('Elena de Avalon') y Jeff Ranjo ('Moana').
'Maya and the Three' ha sido descrita por su creator como un "Señor de los anillos mexicano", donde la historia se centrará en la cultura Mesoamericana, situándonos en un ambiente mítico donde seguiremos a Maya, una princesa guerrera que se embarca en una búsqueda para reclutar a tres luchadores legendarios, esto con el objetivo de ayudar a salvar el mundo de los hombres y los dioses.

Go! Go! Cory Carson

Esta serie animada se estrenará en 2019 y estará dirigida a los niños en edad preescolar. Se basará en los juguetes Go! Go! Smart Wheels de VTech, donde seguiremos las aventuras de un auto llamado Cory Carson, "que recorre los sinuosos caminos de la infancia en Bumperton Hills".
'Go! Go! Cory Carson' cuenta con la participación de los productores ejecutivos Alex Woo ('Wall-E', 'Ratatouille'), Stanley Moore ('Finding Dory', 'Monsters University') y Tone Thyne.

'Kid Cosmic'

El creador de 'The Powerpuff Girls', Craig McCracken, está listo para regresar con una nueva serie animada que se estrenará en 2020. 'Kid Cosmic' nos relata la historia de un niño que sueña ser superhéroe, y un día al encontrar las 'piedras cósmicas del poder', sus sueños parecen haberse vuelto realidad. Esta serie más allá de las aventuras de un superhéroe nos mostrará lo complicado que puede ser tener poderes siendo un niño.

'Trash Truck'

Otra serie animada que llegará en 2020, esta vez de la mano de Max Keane ('Dear Basketball'). En 'Trash Truck' se nos contará la historia de Hank, "un niño de 6 años, libre y lleno de mugre, con una gran imaginación y un mejor amigo aún más grande... un camión de basura gigante". Esta producción cuenta con los productores ejecutivos Glen Keane ('La Sirenita', 'Aladdín', 'La Bella y la Bestia') y Gennie Rim ('Dear Basketball').

'My Father's Dragon'

Basada en las novelas infantiles de Ruth Stiles Gannett, 'My Father’s Dragon' será una película animada en 2D que llegará en 2021 bajo la producción de Nora Twomey ('The Breadwinner') y escrita por Meg LeFauve ('Inside Out'). Esta película nos contará la historia de Elmer Elevator, un joven fugitivo que busca a un dragón cautivo en una isla llamada 'Wild Island', pero aquí se encontrará con algo que no esperaba.

'The Willoughbys'

Se trata de una adaptación de la novela del mismo nombre de Lois Lowry, ganadora de la Medalla de Honor Newberry, la cual ha sido adaptada a película de animación por ordenador por parte de BRON Animation en Vancouver. Su estreno está previsto para 2020 y cuenta con la dirección de Kris Pearn ('Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2').
"Cuando los cuatro niños Willoughby son abandonados por sus padres egoístas, tienen que aprender a adaptar sus valores anticuados al mundo contemporáneo para crear una familia nueva y moderna".


Las siete producciones originales anunciadas durante este 2018

Como comentaba, estas nuevas seis producciones se suman a siete más que han sido anunciadas a lo largo de este año:

'Jacob And The Sea Beast': a estrenarse en 2020, se trata de una película de animación por ordenador escrita y dirigida por el ganador del Óscar Chris Williams ('Moana', 'Bolt').

'Klaus': una película familiar de animación 2D del guionista y director Sergio Pablos, cocreador de 'Mi villano favorito' que se estrenará a finales de 2019.

'Mighty Little Bheem': una serie animada para preescolares basada en la franquicia 'Bheem' que está siendo producida en la India. Se estrenará en 2019.

'Motown Magic': tras el éxito de 'Beat Bugs', vuelve Josh Wakely con una serie animada que reúne 52 versiones nuevas de algunos de los clásicos de Motown de músicos como The Jackson 5, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes y Smokey Robinson. Su estreno será este 20 de noviembre de 2018.

'Over the Moon': una chica construye un cohete para viajar a la Luna y demostrarle a su padre que la 'Diosa de la Luna' existe. Esta es la premisa sobre esta película musical animada con ordenador, la cual es dirigida por Glen Keane ('La Sirenita', 'Aladdín', 'La Bella y la Bestia'). Su estreno está programado para 2020.

'Wendell & Wild': una película animada escrita y dirigida por Henry Selick ('El Extraño Mundo de Jack', 'Coraline') que nos presenta la historia de dos hermanos demonios que escapan del inframundo y se encuentran en una ciudad donde deben evadir al adolescente Kat, que está tratando de destruirlos. Esta programada para estrenarse en 2021.

'Pinocchio': una producción del ganador del Óscar Guillermo del Toro, quien adaptará la conocida historia de Pinocho a una película animada en stop-motion que también escribirá. Esta película se situará en Italia durante la década de 1930 y contará con la colaboración de The Jim Henson Company. Su estreno está programado para 2021.

'A pesar de todo': Netflix y Bambú inician el rodaje de su nueva película, con Blanca Suárez y Macarena García


La presencia de Netflix en España no hace más que crecer. Después de comprometerse a producir más de una decena de series al año en nuestro país, la plataforma de streaming no se ha olvidado de su apartado cinematográfico y ha anunciado una nueva película original española: 'A pesar de todo'. De hecho, su rodaje ya ha comenzado y cuenta con una buena dosis de estrellas patrias.


Como ha confirmado el gigante del entretenimiento en un comunicado de prensa, el film está protagonizado por Blanca Suárez, Macarena García, Amaia Salamanca y Belén Cuesta, que interpretan a las hermanas Sara, Sofía, Lucía y Claudia. Las cuatro se reúnen a causa del fallecimiento de su madre, Carmen (Marisa Paredes), que provoca que las hermanas tengan que lidiar con sus diversas personalidades en esta comedia de enredo.
La cineasta argentina Gabriela Tagliavini ("Cómo cortar a tu patán", "La frontera del crimen") es la responsable de la dirección del film, que también cuenta en su reparto con Juan Diego, Tito Valverde, Rossy de Palma, Maxi Iglesias, Carlos Bardem, Emilio Gutiérrez Caba y Joaquín Climent. En el departamento de producción nos encontramos con Teresa Fernández-Valdés y Ramón Campos, responsables de Bambú Producciones, que mantienen una estrecha relación con Netflix desde su llegada a España.

Relación de lujo

'A pesar de todo' es la primera película que realiza Bambú para Netflix, pero en los últimos años hemos visto cómo su colaboración crecía tras el estreno de 'Las chicas del cable' con nuevos proyectos, como 'Alta mar' y 'El Crimen de Alcàsser'. Además, la plataforma de streaming tiene pendiente el estreno de otras películas originales, como 'Elisa y Marcela' y 'Diecisiete', que han sido dirigidas por Isabel Coixet y Daniel Sánchez Arévalo, respectivamente.

Las Escalofriantes Aventuras de Sabrina el día 26, La Maldición de Hill House el 12 y la 3ª de Daredevil el 19 | Octubre


Élite es la segunda producción española de Netflix, tras Las chicas del cable –que estrenó tercera temporada en septiembre-. Es el gran estreno para este mes de octubre, el día 5, pero no es la única. Viene también Las Escalofriantes Aventuras de Sabrina el día 26, y La Maldición de Hill House se estrenará el día 12. La tercera temporada de Darevil, de Marvel, llegará el día 19 y se sumará a una amplia lista en la que están Bodyguard, Dancing Queen, Big Mouth –2ª temporada- y Dinastía, Black Light y Dinastía con sus segunda y tercera temporadas, con capítulos semanales.

En el apartado de películas, Netflix nos tiene preparados para octubre El Apóstol, 22 de julio e Illang: La Brigada del Lobo como platos fuertes. Pero también llegarán este mes a su catálogo La Sombra de la Ley, Operation Finale y Errementari: El Herrero y el Diablo. También tienen preparada una selección de películas que ‘no deberíamos perdernos’, entre las cuales están La Bella y la Bestia desde el día 17 de octubre, El Bar desde el 1, Passengers desde el 28, Cien Años de Perdón, Cincuenta Sombras más Oscuras, Manchester frente al Mar, Ghost in Shell: El Alma de la Máquina, Jefe, La Gran Muralla, Incerta Gloria y Batman Ninja

‘La balada de Buster Scruggs’, la película de los Coen para Netflix


Tim Blake Nelson, James Franco, Liam Neeson y Zoe Kazan protagonizan la antología western de los Coen, que se alzó con el premio a mejor guion en Venecia.

Hace menos de un mes saltaba la noticia: La balada de Buster Scruggs, la antología western de los hermanos Coen para Netflix y una de las series más esperadas del año, sería finalmente un largometraje con seis distintas historias independientes sobre la frontera americana (con robos a bancos, grupos de teatro, mineros en busca de oro) ambientadas en el Lejano Oeste.
Tras alzarse con el premio a mejor guion en el Festival de Venecia, ya tenemos aquí el primer adelanto del filme, que llegará a la plataforma el 16 de noviembre







Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Tras varios meses de espera y de generar altas expectativas, hoy Netflix por fin nos deja ver cómo lucirá Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, su nueva serie que adapta los oscuros cómics homónimos y que nos mostrará un lado más sombrío de Sabrina, la bruja adolescente.


Titulado Feliz cumpleaños, el primer adelanto nos presenta a la protagonista de la serie, Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), una joven mitad bruja y mitad mortal que acaba de cumplir 16 años, la edad justa para que se inicie en las artes de la magia y hechicería. Asimismo, el tráiler nos adentra al oscuro y tétrico mundo de la jovencita, así como a algunos de los sucesos que vivirá y que la orillarán a elegir entre uno de dos caminos, el de la luz o la oscuridad.




‘Cold Warrior’ de Shane Black


Nuevo día, nuevo talonario que saca Netflix para adquirir otra película. La agraciada de hoy ha sido Cold Warrior, proyecto soñado de Shane Black que llevaba una década intentando financiar sin éxito a través de Universal.

Premisa sencillita: un espía retirado desde los tiempos de la Guerra Fría se une a un joven agente para impedir un ataque terrorista orquestado por Rusia. Guión escrito por Chuck Mondry, el cual ha colaborado también con Black en la adaptación de Doc Savage.
En su día, Black tenía la intención de fichar a Mel Gibson para interpretar al susodicho espía-mentor, pero han pasado ocho años desde aquello. No está claro dónde caerá esta película en el calendario de sus responsables pero, teniendo en cuenta que la cartera de proyectos de The Rock es cada vez más creciente, es posible que Black dirija Cold Warrior para Netflix antes que Doc Savage, la cual parecía más cercana tras también un porrón de años en desarrollo.

'El rey proscrito' de David Mackenzie


Tras el buen sabor de boca que produjo la notable Comanchería, su director, David Mackenzie, y su protagonista, Chris Pine, tenían al menos otra colaboración asegurada. Y esa colaboración se titula El rey proscrito, que verá la luz en Netflix el próximo mes de Noviembre.


La película adapta la historia de Roberto I de Escocia, el rey que sucedió a William Wallace en su lucha contra Inglaterra, liderada entonces por Eduardo I de Inglaterra.
La película, que cuenta con guión del propio Mackenzie junto a Mark Bomback, Bathsheba Doran, David Harrower y James MacInnes, está secundada por Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Florence Pugh, Tony Curran y algunos viejos conocidos de Juego de Tronos como Stephen Dillane o James Cosmo entre otros.




Tráiler de 'Maniac' con Emma Stone y Jonah Hill


Netflix ya dispone de fecha oficial de estreno para Maniac, su nueva serie protagonizada por nada más y nada menos que Emma Stone y Jonah Hill.


Maniac llegará a la plataforma de Netflix el próximo 21 de septiembre con el objetivo de rematar el verano y se trata de una mini serie que, por ahora, contará con 10 capítulos de la mano de Cary Joji Fukunaga, el director de True Detective.
En esta serie de humor negro veremos a Stone y Hill en el papel de dos pacientes con problemas mentales internados en una clínica psiquiátrica, que estarán sometidos a diferentes experimentos con fármacos para curar sus patologías. Por ahora, ya tenemos su primer trailer:




Wu Assasins

La ficción se ambientará en el Chinatown de San Francisco y contará con una temporada de 10 episodios.


Netflix sigue apostando por nuevos contenidos y lo hace ahora dando luz verde a Wu Assassins, su nueva serie original de artes marciales junto al protagonista de The Raid.
Según informa Variety, Iko Uwais dará vida a Kai Jin, un aspirante a chef que se convierte en el último Wu Assassin, elegido así para ruenir los poderes de una antigua tríada y restablecer el equilibrio una vez más. Byron Mann también se une a este proyecto interpretando al Uncle Six.
Wu Assasins estará ambientada en el Chinatown de San Francisco y contará con una temporada de 10 episodios producidos por el propio Uwais que también hará de coreógrafo de artes marciales y coordinador de dobles en la serie.

Animal World



Animal World está dirigida por Han Yan, y se espera que esta adaptación del cómic sea uno de los mayores estrenos en China para este verano.


Co-protagonizada por Michael Douglas, la película llegará a la plataforma de streaming Netflix después de que la compañía haya adquirido sus derechos digitales para todos los territorios fuera de China.
Animal World está protagonizada por Li Yifeng (Mr. Six), que dará vida a un adolescente lleno de imaginación que acaba siendo atraído a un juego que pondrá a prueba su ingenio, maquinado por un villano interpretado por Douglas. La película es una adaptación del aclamado manga Ultimate Survivor Kaiji.

No es la primera vez que el manga 'Ultimate Survivor Kaiji' recibe algún tipo de adaptación, tiene un par de series en forma de anime y otras dos películas japonesas (‘Kaiji’ y ‘Kaiji 2’), pero parece ser que ‘Animal World’ será la más loca de todas. Y la que vamos a poder ver gracias a Netflix (no sabemos si CMC Pictures, la distribuidora internacional de la película, tiene previsto estrenarla en los cines de nuestro país).
Por ahora el estreno en cines se producirá en China el próximo 29 de junio, aunque ya pudo verse el fin de semana pasado durante el Shanghai International Film Festival.





Amanda Seyfred en 'Anon'



Un nuevo thriller de ciencia ficción en un futuro no tan distante. Lo mejor de esto, que nuestra querida Amanda Seyfred sale completamente desnuda y que el director es Andrew Niccol, quien fue una de las grande promesas de la ciencia ficción y que por desgracia ha ido cayendo por el camino aunque, siempre manteniendo un mínimo de calidad y ójala esta nueva película lo vuelva a situar donde se merece.


Amanda Seyfried y Clive Owen serán los protagonistas de la nueva película de Andrew Niccol (El Señor de la Guerra, In Time y sobre todo aquella joyas llamadas 'Gattaca' y 'El show de Truman'), un nuevo thriller de ciencia ficción que transcurre en un futuro distópico. Ya hemos visto un futuro distópico en manos de Niccol, pero esta vez la historia se centra en un detective (Owen) que vive en un mundo en donde la privacidad y el anonimato ya no existen. En eso, descubre a una mujer (Seyfried) que no puede identificar, y todo se conecta con un gran crimen a resolver.

Netflix es la encargada de la producción del filme y ya ha dado a conocer el trailer subtitulado y el poster de Anon, este nuevo thriller de ciencia ficción liderado por Clive Owen (Children of Men, The Knick) y Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!, Les Misérables) que está en desarrollo desde que el gigante de streaming comenzó a incursionar en la producción de largometrajes para ser estrenados exclusivamente en su plataforma.
En el mundo del detective Sal Frieland, nada es privado y nadie es anónimo, la gente lleva una vida transparente que se puede rastrear y el crimen parece algo del pasado. Sin embargo, una serie de asesinatos desata una investigación donde Frieland se encuentra con una joven que solamente se conoce como “La chica”, alguien sin identidad e invisible para las autoridades.


La catedral del mar



Ayer se vio el primer avance del tráiler de La Catedral del Mar. Serie que tras su emisión en Antena 3 pasará a la parrilla de Netflix.

La serie cuyo protagonista es Aitor Luna, narra la historia contra los abusos de los reyes y nobles en la Barcelona medieval.
Con más de 6 millones de ejemplares vendidos en 40 países, La Catedral del Mar es la fiel adaptación del best seller de Ildefonso Falcones. Es la historia de Arnau Estanyol, un hombre que intentó frenar los abusos de reyes y nobles. Ambientada en la Barcelona medieval estará marcada por la intolerancia religiosa y la segregación social. Producida por series Atresmedia en colaboración con Diagonal TV, La Catedral del Mar es una de las grandes apuestas para el prime time de Antena 3.

Protagonizada por Daniel Grao, Aitor Luna, Pablo Derqui, Michelle Jenner, Ginés García Millán, Andrea Duro, Silvia Abascal, José María Pou… La Catedral del Mar está dirigida por el premiado director Jordi Frades. Rodolf Sirera ha sido el responsable de la adaptación de la exitosa novela mientras que Antonio Onetti y Sergio Barrejón completan el equipo de guionistas.

En pleno siglo XIV Barcelona vive uno de sus momentos más prósperos: la ciudad ha crecido hacia la Ribera, un humilde barrio de pescadores en el que se empieza a construir el mayor templo mariano jamás conocido: Santa María del Mar. La construcción transcurre paralela a la vida de Arnau Estanyol, un siervo de la tierra que, huyendo junto a su padre de los abusos de los señores feudales del campo, se refugia en Barcelona y se convierte en un hombre libre.

'Revolt', serie B e invasiones con Bérénice Marlohe



Los aliens invasores abandonan Estados unidos por una vez y deciden ir a otro continente para iniciar su exterminación...



Y es que, en esta serie B fantástica de invasiones, todo transcurre en África, donde un soldado estadounidense se enfrenta a toda una invasión, sin los grandes medios con que tendría a su alcance en los Estados Unidos. Y claro, aquí, todo es peor. El filme de serie b muestra una calidad técnica más que alabable y es que, los aliens están muy bien realizados, con un aspecto muy creíble, parecidos, por cierto a los que vimos en Distrito 9, pero con la apariencia que tienen los Transformers de Michael Bay.


El protagonista está interpretado por Lee Pace, que interpretó a Ronan en la primera película de Los Guardianes de la Galaxia, y que también se ha podido ver en la serie Half Catch and Fire. Junto a él encontramos a la actriz Bérénice Marlohe, chica Bond en Skyfall y una de las nuevas reinas de la serie B, quien interpretará a una cooperante francesa, que tendrá que sobrevivir junto a él.

El director en el novel Joe Miale, un director de cortometrajes de ciencia ficción que ha tocado algún personaje conocido por los videojuegos, como Assassin’s Creed y Half-Life, asi que algo de experiencia tiene en el género. El tráiler tiene escenas durias y parece que la película no hace concesiones estando más ligada a la ciencia ficción seria que a la más comercial vertiente cómica para todos los públicos vista en los últimos años. ¿Ganará al final la humanidad a sus invasores gracias a algún sorprendente giro de guión? ¿ganará algo de dinero el filme? Pues tendremos que esperar para saberlo, porque de momento la película solo ha visto la luz en Japón y no hay fecha de estreno todavía para estos lares pero todo hace pensar que tendrá estreno directo en VOD.




'Maniac', la serie de una elfa Emma Stone y un delgado Jonah Hill


El evento 'See What's Next' de Netflix que se celebró ayer en Roma y ha sido el escenario escogido por la plataforma para el lanzamiento de las primeras imágenes de otra de sus series más esperadas: Maniac, cuya primera temporada de 10 episodios verá la luz en 2018.


Después de varios meses en el tintero, Maniac al fin va tomando más forma y nos llegan las primeras imágenes de la filmación de la serie. Esta nueva producción de Netflix será la adaptación de una serie noruega del mismo nombre. Ésta se centrará en los personajes de Emma Stone y Jonah Hill, quienes interpretan a dos pacientes de un hospital psiquiátrico. Sus personajes evaden la realidad imaginándose universos fantásticos. Eso explica las intrigantes primeras imágenes.
En estas fotografías reconocemos a la actriz celebrada por La La Land vestida como una elfa y con un arco en la mano. En esta ocasión, Emma deja de lado el cabello pelirrojo para lucir una larga melena rubia...y orejas puntiagudas. En pocas palabras, Emma Stone luce como un híbrido entre Daenerys de Game of Thrones y Legolas de El señor de los anillos. Una similitud que ni el mismo Orlando Bloom pasó por alto.


Grandes nombres están involucrados en el nuevo título original de Netflix: Para empezar su creador es Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) y, además, está protagonizada por la oscarizada Emma Stone (La La Land) y por Jonah Hill (El lobo de Wall Street).
Según la descripción oficial, "Maniac es la historia de dos desconocidos que se ven envueltos en una prueba experimental de una farmacéutica que se complica". En ella, Jonah Hill interpreta a un joven treintañero para el que cada día es único y una fiesta continua. Sin embargo, quizás todo es demasiado perfecto para ser real y, hecho, no lo es.

Por cierto, destacar el cambio físico tan delgado de Jonah Hill.






‘Troy: Fall of a City’: la serie polémica de moda de BBC y Netflix


La serie de la BBC es uno de los estrenos de Netflix del mes de abril y una producción de la que se puede hablar largo y tendido. En primer lugar por el tema épico de la Guerra de Troya, una historia que sigue fascinándonos, y por otro lado la peculiar producción de la BBC que ha puesto al público, críticos e intelectuales a hablar sobre temas bastante relevante.


Antes que nada cabe decir que 'Troya: la caída de una ciudad' es un título disfrutable, de ocho episodios con gran tensión y acción. Es cierto que hay unos capítulos mucho mejor logrados que otros, y que logran dejarnos un sabor amargo de sangre y de venganza. La producción es ambiciosa, en algunos casos fastuosa para dar vida a una de las leyendas épicas más importantes de la cultura.

El pasado 17 de febrero se lanzó la nueva serie ‘Troy: Fall of a city’, la nueva serie británica basada en la historia mitológica de la Guerra de Troya y ya la tenemos en Netflix España. Como ya hemos dicho Troy: Fall of a City, la épica coproducción de Netflix con la BBC , ha sido objeto de críticas en Twitter por la elección del actor David Gyasi como Aquiles, el primer artista negro en actuar en el papel clásico.
Siendo coproducida por el canal de televisión BBC One y la plataforma de vídeo en streaming Netflix, el estreno de Troy: Fall of a city’ a nivel internacional tuvo lugar el sábado día 3 de marzo.

Genial tráiler de 'Lost in Space'



La nueva versión de 'Perdidos en el espacio' que prepara Netflix cada vez pinta mejor. El teaser lanzado hace un par de semanas ya transmitía muy buenas sensaciones, pero es que el tráiler de 'Lost in Space' que acaba de aparecer online es sencillamente alucinante. Épico, espectacular y emocionante.


Aparte de grandes dosis de acción, el avance también nos presenta el planeta en el que acaba perdida la familia Robinson. Recordemos que la premisa de la serie es que cientos de familias son elegidas para una misión de colonización que sale horriblemente mal. Los Robinson acaban en una planeta similar a la Tierra donde tendrán que luchar para sobrevivir, sobre todo cando descubran que no están solos.
'Lost in Space' toma como base la serie original estrenada en 1965, pero será actualizada en varios aspectos.

          Kylo Ren habla sobre el episodio IX | NOTICIAS | Tercera trilogía Star Wars y spin-offs      Cache   Translate Page      

Falta aún para que Star Wars: Episode IX llegue a cines, pero, ya podemos iniciar nuestro carrusel de noticias sobre esta culminación de trilogía que cuenta de nuevo con J.J. Abrams tras la cámara...

El filme que cerrará la actual trilogía -que esperamos sea la última, aunque ya conocemos a Disney- promete grandes cosas, entre ellas dar por terminadas ciertas tramas y personajes y, quién sabe, abrir nuevos caminos para más historias.
Durante una reciente entrevista a una de sus estrellas, se revelaron pocos detalles que nos dejan con la intriga por saber qué sigue. En Vulture (vía Comic Book), el actor Adam Driver respondió preguntas que incluían temas variados que iban desde su época en la milicia hasta sus últimos proyectos, y no se puede tener a Driver al frente sin que se le pregunte algo de Star Wars.

El actor de Star Wars: El Despertar de la Fuerza - reflexionó sobre el final de la trilogía que está cada vez más cerca, y durante la entrevista trató de hablar cuidadosamente, para evitar spoilers y que los fans no puedan saltar a conclusiones aún cuando Episodio IX es un proyecto en proceso y está lejos de alcanzar su fecha de estreno.
Cuando se le preguntó qué es lo que le parece más interesante de interpretar a un personaje como Kylo Ren, Driver se encargó de que sus comentarios fuesen lo más superficiales posible.

Es difícil decir qué es lo más interesante de interpretar a Kylo Ren porque estamos trabajando en algo en particular con él. No quiero adelantar nada.

Si debemos suponer, nos atreveríamos a decir que el filme se encuentra pasando por muchos cambios con el regreso del director J.J. Abrams que fue quien había iniciado la nueva aventura galáctica con Star Wars: El Despertar de la Fuerza para luego cederle los honores a Rian Johnson quien se encargó de la -aún controversial- Star Wars: Los Últimos Jedi.
El camino que Star Wars tomó entre los últimos dos episodios es algo incongruente y no gustó a los fans, por lo que nos llena de intriga saber qué es lo que Abrams hará ahora que está al mando nuevamente. Lo más seguro es que tratará de cerrar la historia como la tuvo pensada desde su inicio, pero ya veremos qué tanto podrá lograrlo cuando tiene que continuar lo visto en Star Wars: Los Últimos Jedi para que la trama tenga sentido.
El tamaño y escala es interesante. Star Wars tiene a unas 4,000 personas trabajando en ella. El proceso es totalmente diferente.
Driver es también consciente del cambio que significa interpretar a Kylo Ren en su carrera, no solo por la popularidad de esta saga, sino por el tipo de personaje que representa. Afirma que sabe que mucha gente lo conoce más por Star Wars que por sus otros trabajos, aunque esto signifique que se lleven una idea errónea de su personalidad, debido a su rol del conocido villano.


NOTICIAS LOS ÚLTIMOS JEDI (2017)


Star Wars: Los Últimos Jedi es probablemente la película más esperada para este año 2017. La película dirigida por Rian Johnson ya ha terminado su rodaje, por lo que es tiempo de comenzar su larga campaña promocional. Como os contábamos ayer, la revista Vanity Fair ha conseguido acceso al rodaje, pudiendo tener detalles exclusivos de este Episodio VIII.

Dos de los personajes de Los Últimos Jedi que todavía faltaban por conocer eran los que estarían interpretados por Laura Dern y Benicio del Toro. Ahora ya podemos saber que interpretan a la Vicealmirante Amilyn Holdo y a "DJ" respectivamete.
A continuación tienes un primer vistazo del look de estos personajes a través del objetivo de la cámara de Annie Leibovitz.

Además de esto, tenemos un listado de varios detalles de la película. Son detalles oficiales dados por los actores o el propio director Rian Johnson. A pesar de ser oficiales, se podrían considerar mini-spoilers. Poco reveladores a nivel de trama argumental, pero que podrían romper el encanto de la película. Por ello los dejamos tras el salto, no sin antes decir que, ya han anunciado que “Star Wars: Episodio IX”, con Colin Trevorrow de director, se empezará a rodar en enero de 2018. Su estreno está programado para 2019.


  • El nombre DJ del personaje de del Toro es un apodo. No es su verdadero nombre. Habría una razón por la que lo llaman así y que descubriremos en la película.
  • El planeta en el que terminó ‘El despertar de la Fuerza’ y comenzará ‘Los últimos Jedi’ es Ahch-To. Planeta del primer templo Jedi. Luke habría estado viviendo allí junto a lo que han denominado una “raza indígena de criaturas cuidadoras” que viven en colmenas. Una descripción poco aclaratoria, aunque sí dicen que no serían los Ewoks.
  • Uno de los lugares que veremos en la película será Canto Bight, una especie de ciudad-casino que definen como una versión Monte Carlo en Star Wars. En ella, transcurrirá el arco que atañe a Finn y a Rose Tico -uno de los nuevos personajes de la película-.
  • Tico, encarnada por Kelly Marie, es una trabajadora de mantenimiento para la Resistencia. En cierto momento, realiza una misión detrás de las líneas enemigas junto a Finn. Tico tiene una hermana llamada Paige, que interpreta Veronica Ngo, y que tiene una “interacción” con Poe. No se llega a detallar qué tipo de interacción.
  • Parte de la película mostrará el entrenamiento Jedi que Luke Skywalker le hará a Rey. Sin dar muchos más detalles, sí han dicho que será un entrenamiento diferente al que tuvo Luke.

Detrás de las cámaras

Portadas



El elenco de la próxima Star Wars posó para las portadas de verano Vanity Fair dedicadas a “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, y la fallecida Carrie Fisher aparece en una de ellas en su memorable personaje de Princesa Leia.

Fotografiados por Annie Leibovitz en el set del tan anticipado film, las otras tres portadas muestran al resto del elenco, incluyendo a Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam River, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie y Kelly Marie Tran. Esta fue la última portada para la que posó Carrie Fisher.







Aldel Ehrenreich en Fuerteventura como Han Solo: a Star Wars Story


El rodaje del spin-off de Star Wars protagonizado por un joven Han Solo al que dará vida Aldel Ehrenreich sigue adelante y tras habernos dejado una primera imagen filtrada del set de la película en Fuerteventura, en las Islas Canarias, tenemos una especie de primer vistazo a Ehrenreich como Han Solo.

La imagen nos llega por cortesía de TMZ, que ha conseguido capturar al actor caracterizado a pie y subido en un curioso vehículo de la película.



El segundo spin-off de la saga Star Wars comenzó oficialmente el rodaje el pasado 20 de febrero y desde entonces, no hemos tenido ocasión de ver nada del set de rodaje, más allá de aquella primera imagen oficial de los actores que lanzó la propia Lucasfilm.


Tras todo este tiempo, se filtra, a pesar de las altas medidas de seguridad de Disney, la primera imagen, fruto del rodaje de la película en Fuerteventura, en las Islas Canarias.
Tal y como se aprecia en la imagen, estamos ante un desierto, lo que rápidamente hace que pensemos en el icónico planeta Tatooine, hogar para las actividades ilegales al margen del Imperio, o en Jakku, visto en el Episodio VII. Igualmente, es posible que se trate de otro planeta desértico más, pero sería un movimiento poco hábil dado que ya tenemos dos destacados planetas desérticos.

Esta película será el segundo spin-off del Universo Star Wars, tras “Rogue One: una historia de Star Wars”. Esta película nos mostrará a unos jóvenes Han Solo, encarnado por Alden Ehrenreich, Lando Calrissian, interpretado por Donald Glover, y Chewbacca, por Joonas Suotamo, que sustituyen así a Harrison Ford, Billy Dee Williams y Peter Mayhew, los actores originales de esos personajes. Igualmente en el reparto tenemos a Woody Harrelson como Beckett, y a Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton y Phoebe Waller-Bridge, cuyos nombres de sus personajes no se han hecho oficiales.


La película, todavía sin título y trama oficial tiene una fecha de estreno confirmada para el 25 de mayo de 2018.





Calendario estrenos Star Wars



Con motivo del anuncio por parte de Disney y Lucasfilms para confirmar el adelanto de la fecha de estreno de Star Wars IX en cines, el final de la actual trilogía, ya podemos marcar en el calendario la ventana de llegada a la gran pantalla de las cuatro películas confirmadas en relación con la franquicia de la Guerra de las Galaxias. Como no queremos que te hagas un lío con tanta película, en Cinematte te dejamos este es el calendario actual para las películas de Star Wars que están por llegar:

  • Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi - 15 de diciembre de 2017.
  • Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (título provisional) - 25 de mayo de 2018.
  • Star Wars: Episode IX - 24 de mayo de 2019.
  • A Star Wars Story (Spin-off sin título) - 2020.


Los últimos Jedi vs El imperio contraataca | Star Wars Celebration


Hace apenas unas horas y gracias a la Star Wars Celebration hemos podido tener el primer teaser oficial de Los últimos Jedi, en el tan esperado teaser hemos podido sacar algunas conclusiones como la oscuridad y el pesimismo presente que hacen alusión a que al igual que El Despertar de la Fuerza fue una especie de reboot homenaje a La guerra de las galaxias, esta nuevo lo es a El imperio contraataca y para muestra un botón.


Los últimos Jedi vs El imperio contraataca




Como vemos según el tráiler, un ejercito de AT-AT y AT-ST son los encargados de un presunto ataque al nuevo escondite de la nueva alianza rebelde. Lo que en El imperio contraataca fue el planeta helado de Hoth, aquí lo es el nuevo planeta desértico de Crait



Incluso vemos a Leia delante del panel de control...



...o a personajes principales como Han Solo o Poe Dameron huyendo de la base en busca de su nave



El entrenamiento de Luke/Rey en manos de Yoda/Luke, es el siguiente paralelismo que vemos entro los dos films. Dagobah deja paso a Ahch-To



Los dos últimos Jedi, Yoda/Luke, serán los encargados de dar forma a la nueva esperanza, Luke/Rey



El rojo vs el azul, volverán a ser la base de la escenografía del duelo entre el mal y el bien, entre Darth Vader vs Luke, o Kylo Ren vs Rey


Y como acabamos de ver en la Star Wars Celebration en Orlando y como se nos venía anticipando Lucasfilm ha aprovechado la ocasión para dar el pistoletazo de salida a la promoción de “Star Wars: Los Últimos Jedi”. A través de un panel del que os traeremos todo una vez esté terminado, han publicado un primer teaser poster de la cinta y el primer trailer propiamente dicho.

En el poster vemos un estilo bastante clásico pero no es una ilustración de Drew Struzan. Por otro lado, el trailer dura dos minutos largos, así que no estamos ante un teaser y coincide bastante con las descripciones que hemos ido leyendo.

Las heroínas más famosas del universo de Star Wars


Las heroínas más famosas del universo de Star Wars pronto protagonizarán sus propias aventuras. El día de ayer en el marco de la Star Wars Celebration que se está realizando en Orlando, Florida, Disney anunció una nueva miniserie animada conocida como Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, misma que se enfocará en mostrarnos algunas historias alternas de seis de las más valientes chicas de la franquicia.

Star Wars: Forces of Destiny se emitará por Youtube y estará conformada por 16 cortos animado enfocados en Leia Organa, Padme Amidala, Ahsoka Tano, Sabine Wren, Rey y Jyn Erso. En todos éstos veremos a las heroínas vivir algunas aventuras que se desarrollan dentro de los contextos de sus respectivas películas e interactuar con otros famosos personajes como Anakin Skywalker, Finn, Maz Kanata, entre muchos otros. De igual forma, ésta contará con su propia línea de juguetes.
Por el momento todavía no hay fecha de estreno aunque te puedes ir dando una idea del concepto que tendrá con el video que te compartimos a continuación.




Rose interpretado por la actriz Kelly Marie Tran



Entre las sorpresas que nos dejó esta mañana el panel de Star Wars: The Last Jedi, conocimos a un nuevo personaje que se unirá al resto de rostros conocidos del octavo episodio de la saga. Se trata de una chica, su nombre es Rose y es interpretado por la actriz Kelly Marie Tran.

Aunque no tuvimos muchos detalles sobre Rose, la actriz que lo interpreta señaló que es parte de la Resistencia y que trabaja en mantenimiento, “no puedo esperar para que la conozcan”, agregó. Con bastante humor, Kelly Marie Tran comentó que fue un gran reto ocultar que estaba trabajando en Star Wars, diciendo que llegó a bromear con su familia diciéndoles que estaba trabajando en una película indie en Canadá para ocultarlo.

En 1977 George Lucas iniciaba lo que sería la primera trilogía de la saga Star Wars. A finales de siglo XX, el mismo Lucas retomaba la serie con su segunda trilogía conocida como las precuelas. En 2015, ya en manos de Disney, se iniciaba la tercera trilogía que esta vez venía con sorpresa a modo de Spin-offs. El Despertar de la fuerza (episodio VII) fue el primer capítulo de esta tercera trilogía, Rogue One, el primero de los spin-offs. Ahora están en marcha sus continuaciones y Los últimos Jedi (episodio VIII) va a ser la primera en llegar seguida por Han Solo una historia de Star Wars y de eso, se trata esta entrada. De ir recogiendo noticias sobre todo lo concerniente a esta nueva trilogía y sus spin-off. Hoy hablamos de El líder supremo SNOKE.

Los rumores en torno a la continuación de Star Wars: El Despertar de la Fuerza, finalmente titulada Los Últimos Jedi, no han dejado de sucederse en los últimos meses. Muchos de ellos, de hecho, han girado en torno a una de las figuras más misteriosas de la cinta dirigida por J.J. Abrams, que presentó al Líder Supremo Snoke ante los fans.
Desde entonces, los seguidores de la franquicia creada por George Lucas no han dejado de preguntarse por los orígenes del personaje y, en consecuencia, por su verdadera identidad. La próxima película de la saga, cuyo estreno está previsto para el mes de diciembre, podría despejar este incógnita en una línea de diálogo del todo reveladora.
Al menos, eso es lo que asegura el popular youtuber Mike Zeroh, que en uno de sus últimos vídeos ha ofrecido nueva información al respecto. Según un ciudadano de Dubrovnik, que habría estado presente durante el rodaje de una secuencia de la película protagonizada, Luke y Leia describirían al villano como “un Sith que nadie sabía que existía”, en inglés “a Sith No One Knew Existed”. Efectivamente, S-N-O-K-E. ¿Crees que el rumor estará en lo cierto?


Inicio rodaje Han Solo una historia de Star Wars



Lucasfilm había permanecido en un completo silencio en cuanto a detalles de la película en solitario de Han Solo, sin embargo ese pequeño veto parece haber terminado hoy, pero de manera muy sutil. La cuenta oficial de Star Wars en Instagram publicó una fotografía que muestra a todos los actores principales de la producción, además de contarnos por medio de su sitio web un poco más sobre la cinta dirigida por Phil Lord y Christopher Miller.

Según StarWars.com, el filme contará los primeros encuentros entre Solo y Chewbacca con su amigo Lando Calrissian, quien acá es protagonizado por Donald Glover, así como también la historia de ambos personajes antes de los eventos de La guerra de las galaxias. El elenco incluye también los nombres de Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge y Joonas Suotamo en el rol de Chewbacca.
Los directores afirman en el sitio web de la franquicia que "ver a gente de todo el mundo tan inspirada, con sus voces únicas, reuniéndose con el solo propósito de hacer arte, no es otra cosa sino un milagro (...) No podemos pensar en nada chistoso para decir, porque nos sentimos realmente sobrecogidos y afortunados".

Si bien la producción -que por lo demás, sigue sin tener un título oficial- comenzó sus filmaciones a finales de enero en Pinewood Studios de Londres, la cinta escrita por Lawrence y Jon Kasdan se estrenará el día 25 de mayo de 2018.

The Last Jedi | Los últimos Jedi


Con el título confirmado y consciente del revuelo que ha causado, Rian Johnson ha subido en su cuenta de Instagram una imagen muy especial de “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, el octavo episodio de la franquicia.
En ella no vemos nada revelador realmente, sino que simplemente es una instantánea de la clásica introducción en la que vemos el título justo debajo de “Episode VIII”. Pero no os emocionéis, no da ninguna pista sobre lo que hay escrito justo debajo.


Los últimos Jedi | Título


Ya está, ya llegó. Disney acaba de confirmar el título que llevará el esperado Episodio VIII de Star Wars. Según figura en su web oficial, Star Wars: The Last Jedi será el nombre de esta octava entrega cinematográfico del universo creado por George Lucas. Otro detalle a comentar es que el logo de Star Wars abandona el amarillo oro habitual por un rojo que supone una sorpresa en la saga. ¿tendrá algo que ver el lado oscuro con ese color rojo?

No sabemos nada más, ni dato al respecto de su sinopsis, sencillamente se la denomina como "El siguiente capítulo en la saga Skywalker", un título dedicado al personaje interpretado por Mark Hamill, quien ha pasado los últimos años de su existencia en el exilio precisamente por esa condición de ser "el último Jedi".

The Last Jedi o Los ültimos jedi está escrita y dirigida como sabemos por Rian Johnson, quien coge el relevo de J.J. Abrams en la silla de director. Este último será el productor ejecutivo mientras que los productores serán Kathleen Kennedy y Ram Bergman.
Tras un retraso confirmado el año pasado, se estrenará el próximo 15 de diciembre de 2017, fecha que debería permanecer inmóvil, ya que el rodaje ya terminó el pasado verano.


Crítica Rogue One | La Fuerza está en ella



Puntuación: ****
Visual: ****
Narrativa: ****


Después de mucho meditar hemos decidido darle cuatro estrellas en todos los apartados a esta curiosa y distinta obra sobre el universo Star Wars. Rogue One es ya una obra de culto, un ente singular y una obra que gana enteros conforme van pasando los días. Es por tanto un futuro proyecto de clásico que sirve de antesala a uno de los clásicos más aclamados de todos los tiempos. Es la historia que abre aquella nueva esperanza y ya leyenda del cine llamada La Guerra de la Galaxias. Curiosamente, es también quien acaba con su mito debido al carácter de entrega anual vía spin-offs que ha tomado la saga en manos de Disney.


La Fuerza está en ella


Estamos ante una obra muy especial. Rogue One es el primer spin-off de la historia de Star Wars, una forma distinta y modesta (si esta saga entiende de modestia) de llevar al cine las aventuras del universo galáctico creado por George Lucas. Tras un primer visionado nos hizo falta un segundo para puntuar definitivamente lo que debe ser un antes y un después en Star Wars. Ahora decimos que la primera impresión fue  no sólo buena sino que muy buena, la segunda como veis ese notable muy alto que se ha llevado.

Cuando uno entra al cine y sabe que tiene una crítica que escribir, los sentidos se posan sobre la obra de una forma distinta a como lo haría ante  un visionado únicamente de placer. Esto hace que muchas veces el instinto se pierda y el razocinio acabe desvirtuando el verdadero valor de la producción. Con Rogue One hemos preferido primero ponernos ante ella como puro placer para después, realizar ese segundo visionado donde el citado razocinio acabe por dictar que puntuación nos merece (a nosotros que no ella).

Lo primero que hay que decir es que por primera vez podemos analizar la obra como capítulo independiente y es que, Rogue One no va a necesitar de una continuación y o precuela para "realizarse" como film o ente. Rogue One es lo que es y no hay más que buscar ya que no va a crecer o menguar dependiendo de nada. Ha llegado como recuerdo y como homenaje a esa leyenda llamada Star Wars y en eso se queda.
Rogue One es además una obra distinta a lo visto hasta ahora. Es un capítulo construido con sus propias reglas; es un film de Star Wars en su hilo narrador pero no en su forma de ser rodada y entendida.
La obra de Gareth Edwards o de Disney o de quien sea es totalmente libre y eso la hace única. Podrá ser mejor o peor pero desde ya aviso que estamos ante una obra de culto, una rara avis, uno de esos films que va ganando peso con los años hasta ser una leyenda y un ejemplo a imitar sin posibilidad nunca de conseguirlo. Y es que ya no habrá otro
