From Dallas Observer:

Double Dare’s Marc Summers Never Gets Tired of Hearing That He Made Your Childhood Awesome

When people see game show host and television producer Marc Summers outside of their TVs or childhood memories, he says he loves it when they come up to him, politely introduce themselves and tell him that they grew up watching him host Nickelodeon's messy kids' game show Double Dare.

"I get that every day and I love it," Summers says. "Because people grew up with it, the show had a huge influence on so many people and I find it amazing and fantastic."

Double Dare is more than 30 years old, and it's been part of the regular childhood TV diet of several generations of kids. Its multiple spinoffs, like the syndicated Super Sloppy Double Dare and Fox's prime-time version Family Double Dare and the reruns, aired long after the show's final episode. Last year, Nickelodeon brought the show back with Summers and YouTube comedy star turned TV host Liza Koshy for a whole new generation of kids and their parents who fondly remember rooting for contestants as they tried to find a flag in a giant pair of nostrils filled with neon green snot or run up the chocolate-covered slope to get to the bottom of the Sundae Slide.

The show has become such a big hit again that Nickelodeon launched a Double Dare Live tour just like the ones in the ’80s and ’90s. Summers and the game show's sets, props and obstacles are roaming all over the country to give kids and their parents a chance to win cash and prizes in their hometown. Summers' show will be in DFW on Saturday at The Theatre at Grand Prairie.

Summers says he's been trying to get Double Dare back on Nickelodeon for years. However, the tone of the network's non-animated shows shifted from rebellious kid fare like The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Clarissa Explains It All and You Can't Do That on Television to bubblegum pop comedies like iCarly, Big Time Rush and (cue shivers) Fred: The Show.

"I'd been trying to bring it back for 10 years and Nickelodeon wasn't budging on it," Summers says. "Then I saw they started thinking about picking up old shows like Blue's Clues and Clarissa and I just texted the management saying, 'Am I getting the next phone call?' And a few days later, I got an email saying, 'Give us a call.'"

Double Dare first appeared on TV schedules in 1986, starting a 10-year run that lasted long beyond its final episode in reruns. The show also helped bring the first big wave of watchers to Nickelodeon.

Summers, an Indiana native, had worked in Los Angeles as an actor, stand-up comedian and magician since the late 1970s before the network hired him to host the game show that pitted two teams of kids in a 30-minute game of trivia dares and messy physical challenges. Summers' smiling and sportive emcee style, splashy sport jackets and show-starting shouts of "On your mark, get set, go!" made him a perfect fit for the food-flinging game show that still bills itself as the messiest on television. Double Dare became one of the network's first certified hits right out of the starting gate.

"Back in the day when Nickelodeon was putting things together, they did a lot of research and found out that kids didn't have their own game show," Summers says. "They were living vicariously through their parents who were watching The Price is Right. So they decided that kids were already playing Truth or Dare on the playground back in the day and they added the mess and an obstacle course and it turned into what it turned into. Cable was in its infancy and Nick needed something to shout out big, 'Come and watch us!'"

“Cable was in its infancy and Nickelodeon needed something to shout out big, ‘Come and watch us!’ ” — Marc Summers

Double Dare also made Summers an emcee TV star. He scored guest appearances across cable TV and the networks on other game shows, hosted his own talk shows and made guest appearances on late night talk shows.

His infamous appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno next to a notably cranky Burt Reynolds led to a series of verbal jabs about the late movie star's recent divorce and Summers' career before they poured mugs of water on each other and ended the bizarre segment with a pie fight and a hug.

The show's wild success prompted the first live tour to theaters where kids could get up on stage and make a mess for cash and prizes. However, the prizes they offered on the live tour weren't all that impressive, something Summers says he remarked on into his microphone at one of the live shows at which the sponsor was sitting in the audience.

"We would give away trips to Space Camp and on Fox, we were giving away cars and trips to Europe so I would say, 'If you get through obstacle No. 1, you get a box of Blow Pops and if you get through obstacle No. 2, we'll give you tickets to a movie.' And there was a sponsor that I can't name right now but it was a national sponsor who was in the audience and they didn't tell me," Summers says. "I said they would win a $10 gift certificate to this place and I looked down at the audience because I saw the Nickelodeon executives were there and I said, 'Come on, we can do better than this,' and they freaked out."

Summers says he's sure every contestant will be happy with the prizes on his current tour.

"Now we're giving away cash," he says. "People always like money."

The show also gave Summers a long-lasting television career in front of the camera as a host of shows like the long-running food documentary series Unwrapped on the Food Network and behind the camera as a producer on reality shows like Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible. He also appears in an upcoming nature documentary series for the Discovery Channel. Summers says his son and daughter have also followed his footsteps into the TV business as a TV producer and editor, respectively.

"I'll be 68 in November, and I always feel like I've never worked a day in my life," Summers says. "I'll keep going and people seem to keep coming and I guess they'll tell me when it's time to stop."

“I'll be 68 in November, and I always feel like I've never worked a day in my life.” — Marc Summers

Nickelodeon celebrated Double Dare's 30th anniversary in 2016 and brought Summers, announcer John Harvey and co-host and production assistant Robin Russo back together for a reunion special. Nickelodeon's new management started to commission reboots of some of the show's most memorable programs, like the sitcom Clarissa Explains It All starring Melissa Joan Hart and All That, which launched the TV comedy career of Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson, who is an executive producer of the kids' sketch show revival, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A new Double Dare launched in 2018 that looks and sounds just like the original show, with a theme song that pumps out guitar riffs like a semi-auto confetti cannon and a loud, color-clashing set that the fashion conscious called "cool" in the '80s. Summers says the show reaches two audiences at once now with the lively Koshy as its new host for the YouTube generation and Summers as her co-host for the adults who grew up watching him.

"It was very smart because Liza has 15 or 20 million viewers through YouTube and there's a whole generation who don't know who she is but know who I am and vice versa," Summers says. "She's very open and sweet about taking direction, and very respectful. We’re actually really good friends. She comes to me for advice and it's worked out quite well. Not anybody can just walk in and do a game show even after being trained. It ain’t that easy, but she's incredibly bright and very funny and she picked it up in a nanosecond."

The live tour that was spawned by the show's most recent success picks both kids and adults in the crowd as contestants. Summers says each live show gives him an even more unique opportunity to see how Double Dare has grown over the last 33 years.

"When we raise the curtain and they see the set for the first time, we get a huge scream and people go crazy. And then we reveal the next curtain and the obstacle course comes out," Summers says. "The thing I love about it is even though we're only bringing 60 to 70 people up, everyone walks out feeling good and feeling participatory and involved. It's fascinating."

The tour also gives Summers a chance to meet fans who now span two generations of TV watchers, he says.

"A lot of times, there will be four grown-ups and I'll say, 'Where are the kids?' and they say, 'Oh heck, we left them at home,'" Summers says. "They all have stories about how we built an obstacle course in the living room and how Mom sent me to my room for a week. Everyone has a story and it's fascinating. I'm learning on this tour the impact of this show, and it's truly fascinating to me.

"People will say, 'Oh you probably don't want to hear this.' I do want to hear it. The fact that anybody remembers is great."

WHEN TROUBLE IS ON THE WAY, ONE LITTLE GIRL WILL SAVE THE DAY IN ABBY HATCHER, NICKELODEON’S BRAND-NEW ANIMATED PRESCHOOL SERIES PREMIERES ON NICK JR. AUSTRALIA


Share it: @NickJrANZ #AbbyHatcher


Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated preschool series, Abby Hatcher (created and produced by Spin Master Entertainment), tells the story of a little girl with a big heart who helps her friends, the amazing and quirky Fuzzly creatures, fix their mishaps, learn from their mistakes and negotiate their emotions. The series made its Australian debut on Monday 8th April 2019 at 8:30am on Nick Jr. Australia, with new episodes continuing to air weekdays at 8:30am on the Nick Jr. channel in Australia. Abby Hatcher (26 episodes) features a social-emotional curriculum highlighting empathy, compassion and problem-solving skills.


In Abby Hatcher, Abby is an eternally optimistic, kind-hearted seven-year-old girl who loves to lend a helping hand to others and accepts everyone--no matter how different they are. In Abby’s world, humans coexist with Fuzzlies, incredible creatures that each have their own unique abilities that make them special, and Abby’s parents’ hotel is home to many. Together with her best Fuzzly friend Bozzly, Abby goes on wild adventures to fix Fuzzly mishaps and help them in any way she can. Whenever a problem arises Abby and Bozzly always say, “Fuzzly trouble can’t delay, to the rescue, save the day!”



In the series premiere of Abby Hatcher, “When Abby Met Bozzly/Hair Flair Everywhere,” Abby meets the best friend of her dreams, a fuzzly named Bozzly, for the first time. Then, when the hotel’s salon owner Mrs. Melvin closes the salon for the day, Abby tries to help Harriet, a hair-obsessed Fuzzly, find a new hobby, when all she really wants is to style. In additional new episodes, Mo and Bo are mistaken for a snow monster, and, after taking a tumble, Otis suffers a fear of heights and becomes scared to use his elevator.

K-pop has officially rocked Coachella, and the music festival will never be the same.

On Friday, Blackpink, a K-pop girl group comprised of four singers — Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa — made history by becoming the first such group ever to perform at Coachella. The festival has been home to other South Korean acts before, but as the Los Angeles Times pointed out, it's the first time "a K-pop idol group at the height of its powers" took the Coachella stage.

Think of it as a milestone moment for the genre cementing its place in the minds of a U.S. audience.

Fans of the South Korean pop group, called "Blinks," loved every second of the set, and the performance was even live-streamed on a large screen in New York’s Times Square at night. Read more...

Tens of thousands mourn Nipsey Hussle. But his memorial service was all about South L.A.

By Angel Jennings | Los Angeles Times

Nipsey Hussle, the Grammy-nominated rapper who never abandoned his ’hood, made his final victory lap around Los Angeles on Thursday — a star-studded event that was bathed in blackness.

The family of the 33-year-old, who was shot to death March 31, gave the rights to stream a three-hour memorial service at Staples Center to BET and Tidal, the music streaming service owned by rap mogul Jay Z.

Instead of relying solely on Los Angeles police, the family used members of the Nation of Islam to handle their personal security and control the crowd along a lengthy procession through South Los Angeles.

It was an event the likes of which the city has never quite seen. For 25 miles, bystanders lined the streets snapping photos, releasing balloons and throwing flowers at the hearse as it passed. In some places, people climbed utility poles and buildings, including Slauson Donuts, to get a better view. So many mourners flooded the streets that the procession was stopped periodically in gridlock.

And at the end of this tour, the family put Hussle’s body in the hands of Angelus Funeral Home — a staple of a black-owned business off Crenshaw Boulevard.

Tens of thousands of fans, many of them dressed in blue and white, came out Thursday to grieve and celebrate the life of Hussle — a beloved hometown hero whose music and community activism reverberated from Los Angeles to his father’s homeland of Eritrea.

“He is the prophetic voice of all in that community,” Minister Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader, told the crowd at Staples Center. “He lived the gang life, but he didn’t stay there. He lived the life of the ’hood, but he rose above the pull of gravity. Ermias was more than a hip-hop artist: He was a voice; he was a brilliant mind, and the spirit of God was in his life.”

Born Ermias Joseph Asghedom, Hussle was gunned down in broad daylight outside his clothing store off Slauson Avenue. Police say it was most likely a personal grudge and not gang ties that led to his death. An acquaintance named Eric Holder has been charged with murder.

Thursday’s daylong tribute to Hussle started with a morning memorial service at 21,000-seat Staples Center and ended with a 25.5-mile procession through streets lined with people on foot, on motorcycles and doing wheelies on ATVs.

Free tickets for the service — attended by a who’s who of black entertainment, including Stevie Wonder and Snoop Dogg — were gone within minutes. The only other time Staples Center has been used to memorialize an entertainer was in 2009, when Michael Jackson died.

Hussle, who in his rap lyrics and interviews said that he was a member the Rollin’ 60s Crips gang, had left that lifestyle behind, but he never left his Hyde Park neighborhood or its people, speakers reminded the crowd. He was a frequent face in the L-shaped strip mall that he owned and where he opened the Marathon Clothing store. He hired felons. And he was on a mission to revitalize his struggling neighborhood.

“He put his heart and soul on Crenshaw and Slauson,” said his brother, Samiel Asghedom.

The service began almost an hour late Thursday morning, as thousands of fans waited in line outside Staples Center. Inside, an image of the slain rapper — bathed in shades of blue — was projected large on a center screen and flanked by identical images of him dressed in all white, with palm trees stretched high in the sky behind him. Fans — some wearing shirts from Hussle’s clothing brand with “Crenshaw” scribbled on the front — filled the cavernous space.

Before speakers climbed onstage, the lights inside were kept dim as the title track from Hussle’s Grammy-nominated album “Victory Lap” played. But the solemn tone quickly transformed into a concert vibe as people jumped to their feet and erupted in screams. Music blared from speakers, and the glare of cellphones illuminated the darkness as the crowd shouted the slain rapper’s name.

The sea of people pulsed with the music.

Those in the crowd rose to their feet as the DJ shouted, “The victory lap continues,” an homage to Hussle’s motto. If there was any doubt if this was going to be an event of mourning or jubilation, the DJ set the tone and kept shouting “Celebration!”

The crowd responded with chants of “Nipsey! Nipsey! Nipsey!”

Throughout the service, family and friends shared touching and often humorous memories of Hussle.

His father, Dawit Asghedom, spoke of how strong his son was, saying how he was born with his umbilical cord around his neck but pulled through.

Fellow rapper Snoop Dogg recalled how he and Hussle created a bond over music and entrepreneurship. “He had vision for me that I didn’t even have for myself,” he said.

Kameron Carter, the son of Hussle’s girlfriend, Lauren London, and rapper Lil Wayne, wore a cobalt blue suit and matching tie as he took the stage. His mother, dressed all in white, and Hussle’s other children looked on as the boy spoke.

“On the night of April 2, I had a dream. I was in paradise, and I was playing in the ocean water when Ermias popped up right behind me. He said, ‘What up, Killa?’ I turned around and yelled his name and gave him a hug,” Kameron, 9, said. “I realized Ermias told me what heaven was like; he told me it was paradise.”

As they stood onstage, Hussle’s 2-year-old son, Kross Asghedom, grabbed the microphone, put it to his mouth and grinned.

In giving her own eulogy, London said she had “never felt this type of pain before.”

“I know everybody is hurting, but I’d like to say something to my city of Los Angeles,” she concluded after a few minutes. “If you’re from L.A., stand up. This pain is ours. We know what it meant to us. We lost an incredible soul. We lost somebody very rare to us. We lost a real one and we won’t ever be the same, but … the marathon continues.”

In perhaps the biggest surprise of the morning, publicist Karen Civil read a letter from a man many in the black community have dubbed their “forever POTUS” — former President Barack Obama.

“While most folks look at the Crenshaw neighborhood where he grew up and see only gangs, bullets, and despair, Nipsey saw potential,” Obama wrote.

“He saw hope. He saw a community that, even through its flaws, taught him to always keep going. His choice to invest in that community rather than ignore it.”

In his eulogy, Farrakhan used Hussle’s tragic ending as a rallying cry for rival gang members to honor Hussle and abandon the street life.

“He walked among the blue with a heart full of red, and all the colors in between, because his life was for unity,” he said. “His homecoming will be a life call for us to get up from where we are and be a new man and new woman.”

Later, Hussle’s body, carried in a silver hearse, made its way down Vermont Avenue to Watts, where Nipsey spent some of his formative years and honed his craft at the Watts Towers Arts Center, and through Inglewood, through Hyde Park and finally up Crenshaw to the funeral home.

The procession was quintessentially L.A., full of flashy cars performing show-offy maneuvers. At 49th Street, a lowrider car tilted onto one side. Other cars sped and swerved as passengers dangled precariously out of open windows, some waving programs from the memorial service.

Marie Durrah watched the service on TV, then came out to see the procession. She grew up on 67th Street in Crenshaw, which would later become Hussle’s turf.

“It was beautiful in its own right,” said Durrah, 53, who works for the county. “Different neighborhoods gathering together to pay homage to someone who did a lot for his community.”

          Grip on Sports: Winning the Erving Award was just another of Hachimura's amazing feats for Gonzaga      Comment   Translate Page      

A GRIP ON SPORTS • Awards are always quite interesting, from who wins them to what they represent. But there was an interesting twist to Rui Hachimura’s winning the Julius Erving Award last night. Read on.

••••••••••

• Holding a ceremony to hand out college basketball awards is a recent phenomenon, something that has grown out of the proliferation of awards and ESPN’s desire to televise them.

Each position on a basketball team now how its own named award, from the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award for the best center to the Bob Cousy Award for best point guard.

College basketball glitterati gather in Los Angeles and hold a mini-version of the Academy Awards, complete with the red carpet. And the acceptance speeches.

The award for best small forward, a position that can be manned by someone who is cat-quick, a lethal shooter and often draws the opponent’s best player while defending, was named for Dr. J, Julius Erving, whose college career consisted of two years at U Mass – back when that was an unusual occurrence.

But we all remember his swooping drives and his impressive dunks from his NBA days.

This year’s winner: The Zags’ Hachimura.

The award is, at the same time, well-deserved and out of place. Or should we say out of position?

Hachimura deserved one of college hoops’ awards this season. He was the offensive engine of the best offense in college basketball. He led the Zags in scoring, averaging 19.7 points per game, though he was north of 20 for most of the season. He was also the guy they looked to when needing a key hoop and he delivered much of the year.

A consensus All-American, he was the best offensive player on one of the most successful Gonzaga teams ever. Winning a national award seems appropriate.

But should it have been this one?

Hachimura played less than one full game, combined, at the small forward position for the Bulldogs. That wasn’t his spot. He was Gonzaga’s power forward, a “4” in modern parlance. A big who roamed out to the 3-point line on occasion, but was a post – either high or low – in most offensive possessions.

The Zags had plans to play Hachimura more at the “3” spot, or small forward, but Killian Tillie’s injuries submarined those ideas. Instead, Hachimura started the season inside, Corey Kispert, an excellent outside shooter, became the “3” and the offense took off.

When Tillie returned from his two injury stints, Hachimura, Brandon Clarke and Tillie did appear on the court together off and on. But never for long stretches and for less than an entire game, combined. And yet the nice people who decide on college basketball’s awards decided Hachimura was the best at the position.

He may not have been the best small forward in the nation, but he was one of the best players and deserved to be recognized as such. He was.

          A rivalry of champions once again has Sounders and Toronto FC on a collision course      Comment   Translate Page      

One of the oft-forgotten elements to what’s been a run of excellence for the Sounders going on three-plus years is how they’ve managed it without a one-season reboot.

The same can’t be said for their Saturday afternoon opponent, Toronto FC, a franchise that began its own stretch of excellence around the same time back in 2016. A glaring difference between the sides was Toronto crashing and burning to the league’s third-worst record last season less than a year removed from arguably the best Major League Soccer campaign ever.

This season, the “Reds” have picked up right where they left off in dismantling the Sounders in the 2017 MLS Cup final, signaling to many that their dismal 2018 finish might have been an aberration. Certainly, the Sounders are taking the clash Saturday at CenturyLink Field with utmost seriousness given all things between these teams and the current standings.

“It’s a huge test for us, it’s a big game,” Sounders midfielder Cristian Roldan said Friday after the team’s training session. “I don’t want to put any extra pressure on us, but it’s a big game and we need to show up.”

Not only a big game because the Sounders are 4-0-1 with a plus-eight goal differential and taking on an MLS Cup rival that’s started 3-0-1 with a plus-seven goal differential. But also because following this clash, the Sounders face 5-0-1 Los Angeles FC twice before the end of the month.

With the Sounders and LAFC looking to possibly go to the wire for Western Conference supremacy, the next few weeks could play a determining role.

“This can define our season,” Roldan said. “As long as our season is, if we can continue with this momentum and beat these really good teams that are in form, these are six-point games essentially.”

The Sounders remain somewhat miffed at having been made to fly to Denver ahead of being told their game Wednesday against Colorado was being rescheduled because of a pending blizzard. Their flight home didn’t return until about 4 a.m. on Thursday after numerous delays.

But any player tempted to use travel as an excuse for a lack of focus Saturday need look no further than coach Brian Schmetzer. Only a few hours after the team plane landed, Schmetzer learned his father, Walter, 85, a long-standing youth coach and well-known Lake City sporting goods store owner, had died after a brief battle with cancer.

And yet, Schmetzer was back out at practice Friday morning saying he appreciated the outpouring of public support and that he planned to work the game Saturday.

“There were a lot of positives that came out of my dad coming here from Germany,” Schmetzer said. “A licensed coach early on … obviously, there were a lot of fond memories and a lot of good work done.”

Schmetzer’s teams emulated his get-it-done approach and work ethic during shortened offseasons coming off MLS Cup final appearances against Toronto in 2016 and 2017. Their playoff push last year, securing a first-round bye after the worst start in franchise history, is the biggest separator from a Toronto club that couldn’t answer the MLS bell after nearly winning the CONCACAF Champions League final over Chivas.

As witnessed by defending MLS champion Atlanta United FC, demolished in Champions League play this spring and just 0-2-2 this regular season, the “hangover effect” of teams winning it all is very real. Whether it’s the six-week offseason, Champions League obligations or opponents going extra hard at the reigning champ, precious few MLS teams have contended as consistently as Schmetzer’s group.

“I know the experience of playing non-stop for two years, so I think it took its toll on it,” Schmetzer said when asked about Toronto’s stunning dropoff last year and current resurgence. “I don’t have all the ins and outs of their locker room. I’m certainly very proud of our team for not falling into that trap, for continuing to make the playoffs. Portland and Columbus in (the) 2015 (final) did not make the playoffs in 2016.

“We made the playoffs in ’17, we made the playoffs in ’18 – through some tough circumstances. So, it’s a fact I’m very proud of. But they (the Reds) have shown on a consistent basis that they are one of the top teams in our league and don’t expect that to change anytime soon.”

Toronto fans and some players have chirped about how they should have won the 2016 final, in which the injury-hampered Sounders bunkered into a defensive shell, got a miraculous overtime save from Stefan Frei and captured the title on penalty kicks.

The Toronto players seemed determined to prove themselves the rightful champions in 2017, blowing away the field in going 20-5-9 for a then-record 69 points before pasting the Sounders 2-0 in a finals rematch. Still, while the Sounders have yet to enjoy as complete a season as the Reds in 2017, they’ve lost only twice in their past 24 regular-season matches going back to last June – a 19-2-3 mark that translates to an 80-point season if continued over 10 more games.

A big difference-maker for Toronto this season has been a healthy forward Jozy Altidore, injured for much of last year after the Champions League effort. Spanish midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo has two goals and two assists already in two matches since coming over for four years, $18.2 million to replace departed designated player Sebastian Giovinco.

Between the two of them, the Sounders will have their hands full in a rivalry that might not have geography going for it but does come with some of the highest stakes around.

“This is kind of like West Coast-East Coast,” Schmetzer said. “Because 2016 and 2017 were big parts of our history and big parts of their history.”

A history that sees them 1-1 in head-to-head MLS Cup play and steaming toward a possible finals rubber-match in November if the season keeps playing out like it has.


          Gonzaga’s Rui Hachimura wins Julius Erving Award as college basketball’s top small forward      Comment   Translate Page      

Rui Hachimura added another major honor to his collection of awards.

Gonzaga’s standout junior forward was named the Julius Erving Award winner as the top small forward during ESPN’s College Basketball Awards Show on Friday in Los Angeles.

Erving presented Hachimura with the award while head coach Mark Few, assistant coach Tommy Lloyd, who recruited the Japanese native to Gonzaga, and director of analytics Riccardo Fois looked on in the audience.

“His hands are really big,” said Hachimura, referring to Erving, the Hall of Famer commonly known by his ‘Dr. J’ nickname. “I’m just humbled to be here. I’m so thankful to my coaches here today, my family and my teammates.”

Hachimura became the second Zag to win one of the five individual position awards. Przemek Karnowski won the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award as the top center in 2017.

Hachimura was picked over finalists Marial Shayok (Iowa State), Caleb Martin (Nevada), Admiral Schofield (Tennessee) and De’Andre Hunter (Virginia).

Hachimura, who barely spoke English when he arrived in Spokane in 2016, averaged 2.6 points while playing 130 minutes as a reserve on the 2016-17 squad. He averaged 11.6 points as the first big off the bench in 2017-18. He started all 37 games this past season, leading GU in scoring (19.7 points) and finishing second in rebounding (6.5). He played 30.2 minutes per game, third most on the team.

“It was really hard (initially) and I didn’t know anything about U.S. culture. My teammates and coaches really helped me,” Hachimura said. “He (Few) is a coach who thinks about team first and winning first. He told me every time, I’ve got to be a tiger.”

The 6-foot-8, 230-pound Hachimura previously won West Coast Conference and District IX player of the year honors. He’s been named first-team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA). He joined teammate Brandon Clarke on the 10-player Wooden All-American team.

He shot 59 percent from the field and reached double figures in 35 of 37 games, with 21 games of 20 or more points. He posted four double-doubles for the Zags, who lost to 75-69 to eventual national runner-up Texas Tech in the Elite Eight.

Hachimura joined Arizona’s Stanley Johnson (2015), Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine (2016) and Villanova’s Josh Hart (2017) and Mikal Bridges (2018) as Erving Award winners. Johnson, Valentine, Hart and Bridges are playing in the NBA.

Hachimura hasn’t announced his intentions, but he’s considered a first-round NBA draft pick, and most anticipate he’ll skip his senior season at Gonzaga.

Gonzaga senior Josh Perkins was one of five finalists for the Bob Cousy Award (top point guard) that was presented to Murray State’s Ja Morant.

Regional qualifiers

Athletes from Inland Northwest colleges and area athletes from other schools who have met the qualifying standards and declared to compete in the NCAA regional competition May 30-31. Conference champions (CC) earn entry without meeting the standards. The 10,000 meters, decathlon and heptathlon are not contested at the regional level, but are filled with athletes who meet either the automatic or provisional qualifying standards. Top-five finishers in individual events and top three relay teams from regionals advance to the NCAA championships. A select number of at-large athletes who didn’t achieve those finishes will fill the national fields, based on the national descending order of performance lists.

Studio: BoysAndGirlsGuide
Ever wanted the inside scoop on crashing that exclusive party, getting better than average dope, and spending the night with someone you'd be ashamed to be seen with the next morning?

Filmmaker Paul Sapiano answers your questions on these and many other critical areas of the party lifestyle in this satiric comedy. Presented in part as a faux-documentary and in part as the story of a typical night in the life of a handful of Los Angeles nightlife mavens.

The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down offers "useful" advice on getting into the club, scamming free drinks, tipping the bar staff, dealing with uncooperative drug dealers, talking your way into an all-star after party, how to attract women by pretending to be gay, and getting rid of last night's pickup in the cold light of the morning.

The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down received its world premiere at the 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival.

Stars: Jessica Ross, Kat Turner, Dennis Haskins, Jeff Davis, Benny Ciaramello, Brendan McNamara, C.C. Sheffield, Cassie Hamilton, Cricket Leigh, Davin Anderson, Dominique Purdy, Greg Cipes, Greg Studley, James Bonadio, Juan Pacheco, Juliette Long, Justin Cotta, Katie Gilbert, Leyla Milani, Mario Diaz, Michael Fitzgibbon, Billy Bonez, Mitchel Evans, Natalie Taylor, Navia Nguyen, Pete Czechvala, Ravi Patel, Richard Blair, Selena Fara, Steve Monroe

The world could transition entirely to cheap, safe renewable energy before 2050: Finnish study

Solar Panels

A study from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the Energy Watch Group (EWG) from Germany says a global transition to the exclusive use of renewable energy is possible before 2050. (iStock) 

A global transition to the exclusive use of renewable energy sources is not only possible but also cheaper and safer than reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy, according to a new study from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the Energy Watch Group (EWG) from Germany.

The study claims that the rapid development of renewable energy sources and energy storage technology will likely make it possible for the entire planet to reduce its CO2 emissions to zero even earlier than the current 2050 deadline.

The report is the first of its kind to suggest a cost-effective, all-inclusive, global roadmap to keep average global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius. It is also the first planet-wide climate change resistance plan that suggests not using carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) techniques to mechanically remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

According to the model, in 2050 some 69 percent of the world’s energy would come from solar panels, 18 percent from wind power, 3 percent from hydropower systems and 6 percent from bioenergy.

Fossil fuels and nuclear power would not be needed at all. Cars, planes and ships would run on carbon-neutral synthetic fuels produced from hydrogen and carbon dioxide.

The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down offers "useful" advice on getting into the club, scamming free drinks, tipping the bar staff, dealing with uncooperative drug dealers, talking your way into an all-star after party, how to attract women by pretending to be gay, and getting rid of last night's pickup in the cold light of the morning.

The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down received its world premiere at the 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival.

          7 Horrifying Demons, Monsters, and Spirits You'll See in Annabelle Comes Home      Comment   Translate Page      

If you ask me, the Annabelle doll is one of the most iconic (and terrifying) parts of The Conjuring's ever-expanding universe. The doll, which is based on a real-life Raggedy Ann, was first introduced in The Conjuring and has been scaring the sh*t out of us ever since. Her popularity grew so much that she was eventually given her own prequel series! And so, Annabelle and Annabelle: Creation joined the larger timeline. But now, in Annabelle Comes Home, we're slamming right back into the present with Ed and Lorraine Warren and their daughter, Judy (played by Haunting of Hill House's McKenna Grace).

In December 2018, I visited the Los Angeles set of the third Annabelle film, where I got all sorts of fun tidbits about the next chapter in the Warrens's universe. The horror flick takes us right back to where we last left the cursed doll. In fact, the first scene of the movie will be the same as the first scene in The Conjuring: Ed and Lorraine visit a group of nurses who have been having problems with the Annabelle doll, and they decide to take it and lock it away in their infamous artifact room. So sets the scene for the movie - it's in that space between The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2. And though the Warrens appear in the film, it's really going to focus on Judy, her babysitter Mary Ellen, and two friends: Bob and Daniela.

The kids have been left to their own devices in the Warren home, and unfortunately, our girl Annabelle gets loose and begins to "activate" all kinds of cursed objects in the artifact room, as we see in the terrifying trailer. During my visit, producer Peter Safran described it as "Night at the Museum in the artifact room." So yeah, things are going to get pretty wild. And luckily for you, I was able to get the lowdown on a few of the demons (and a couple of fun Easter eggs!) we'll see onscreen.

Plant-Based Diets Are Associated With Lower Adiposity Levels Among Hispanic/Latino Adults in the Adventist Multi-Ethnic Nutrition (AMEN) Study

Background: The Hispanic/Latino population in the US is experiencing high rates of obesity and cardio-metabolic disease that may be attributable to a nutrition transition away from traditional diets emphasizing whole plant foods. In the US, plant-based diets have been shown to be effective in preventing and controlling obesity and cardio-metabolic disease in large samples of primarily non-Hispanic subjects. Studying this association in US Hispanic/Latinos could inform culturally tailored interventions.

Objective: To examine whether the plant-based diet pattern that is frequently followed by Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with lower levels of adiposity and adiposity-related biomarkers.

Methods: The Adventist Multiethnic Nutrition Study (AMEN) enrolled 74 Seventh-day Adventists from five Hispanic/Latino churches within a 20 mile radius of Loma Linda, CA into a cross-sectional study of diet (24 h recalls, surveys) and health (anthropometrics and biomarkers).

Results: Vegetarian diet patterns (Vegan, Lacto-ovo vegetarian, Pesco-vegetarian) were associated with significantly lower BMI (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006), waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5 cm, p = 0.01), and fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg, p = 0.007), as compared to non-vegetarians. Adiposity was positively associated with pro-inflammatory cytokines (Interleukin-6) in this sample, but adjusting for this effect did not alter the associations with vegetarian diet.

Conclusions: Plant-based eating as practiced by US-based Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with BMI in the recommended range. Further work is needed to characterize this type of diet for use in obesity-related interventions among Hispanic/Latinos in the US.



Background

The rates of obesity and diabetes have sharply increased in the last decade among Hispanics/Latinos in North America (14). Currently, diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death in Hispanics/Latinos, and the trend represents a health disparity whereby rates are 60% higher among Hispanics/Latinos as compared to non-Hispanic Whites and increasing faster than in other major ethnic groups (3, 5). In a large sample of Hispanic/Latino adults in four regions of United States (n = 16,400), the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos found that about 1 in 3 individuals had pre-diabetes, and that only about half of individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) had it under control (6).

One potential contributor to this burden of obesity and diabetes is the occurrence of a “nutrition transition” occurring in most people of Mexican origin but accelerated in US Hispanic/Latinos as they acculturate to consuming higher intake of meats and processed foods, and lower intake of whole plant foods commonly found in the traditional diet (i.e., squash, maize, beans) (79). For example, the analysis of a nationally representative sample of US Mexican adults found higher rates of overweight/obesity in those who had “transitioned” from traditional eating patterns emphasizing maize to patterns emphasizing red meat, processed meat, and processed foods (1012). These emerging data support that a plant-based dietary intervention could be effective in primary and secondary prevention of obesity and obesity-related diabetes in the Hispanic/Latino population.

Overall, in a systematic review of 15 intervention studies (17 intervention groups among them) in multi-ethnic samples, Barnard et al. has shown that interventions with the vegetarian diet contributed to an average of more than 3 kg of weight loss (13). For diabetics, a similar systematic review of vegetarian diet interventions indicated significant improvement in glycemic control (14).

A recent pilot study at Loma Linda University has shown that a 5-week plant-based, culturally-tailored diet intervention implemented through community clinics and a church significantly improved hemoglobin A1C levels over a 6 month follow-up in 32 Latino diabetics living in a medically underserved area. At Loma Linda University, more than 60 years of NIH-funded prospective cohort studies [1960 Adventist Mortality Study (15), 1976 Adventist Health Study-1 (16), 2002 Adventist Health Study-2 (17)] have shown that the vegetarian diet was associated with lower risk of weight gain (18, 19), stroke (20), and diabetes (21, 22), and on this causal pathway, a longer life expectancy. These cohorts enrolled Seventh-day Adventists (most recently a nationwide cohort of 96,000 multi-ethnic adults in AHS-2) who provide a unique insight into diet since, due to faith-based recommendations, about 50% are vegetarian, and virtually all avoid smoking and alcohol (23). Faith-based counsels on diet also encourage the consumption of specific plant foods (i.e., legumes, nuts) in place of animal products (19). Hypotheses generated from these cohorts have been tested in landmark intervention trials.

The Adventist Multi-ethnic Nutrition (AMEN) Study is a new pilot study from Loma Linda University involving Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventist adults for the purpose of studying the association between their cultural tailoring of a plant-based diet and selected health outcomes. To date, we have observed beneficial associations between health outcomes and culturally-tailored plant-based diet choices in Black Adventists (24, 25) and in Asian Adventists (20), respectively. The aim of this report is to test the hypothesis that the culturally-tailored plant-based dietary pattern practiced by Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with lower levels of adiposity and adiposity-related biomarkers. Findings from this work can potentially inform the cultural tailoring of plant-based diet choices for dietary interventions in the broader population of US Hispanic/Latinos.
Methods
Study Population

The AMEN study is a cross-sectional investigation of diet and cardio-metabolic markers conducted during 2013–2016 in churches within a 20 mile radius of Loma Linda University. Our target congregations were predominantly of Hispanic/Latino background. The inclusion criteria included: (1) age 18 years or older, (2) baptized into the Seventh-day Adventist church, (3) self-identify as Hispanic, and (4) no self-report of dementia, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.

Recruitment efforts were initiated by assembling a community advisory board of influential individuals from the Hispanic and Asian Adventist churches in Southern California. Based on the advice of this board, we selected five Hispanic congregations. An additional criterion was that the congregations be meeting in facilities that could accommodate a weekend health clinic. Recruitment from these congregations was done by: (1) linking recruitment to informative health and lifestyle presentations done by Loma Linda University lifestyle medicine faculty, (2) linking recruitment to health and wellness clinics done on the church premises over a weekend, and (3) notices on church bulletin boards, social media, and through e-mail campaigns.

Through these efforts, we recruited 141 subjects from the five congregations that had been invited to participate, of whom 101 subjects were eligible for enrollment. Due to missing data for pertinent diet and anthropometric variables, our analytic sample consisted of 74 subjects. All data collection forms were translated into English and Spanish, and a bi-lingual translator was available for assistance.
Outcome Measures

Eligible subjects were enrolled if they attended a health assessment clinic that occurred either as part of a health fair at their church or by appointment at Loma Linda University. A 12 h fasting blood sample drawn by a certified phlebotomist and first void urine sample were collected from each participant. For this analysis, biospecimens were analyzed for a comprehensive metabolic panel, and also tests of inflammatory markers (interleukin-6, C reactive protein) using a previously described protocol by Jaceldo-Siegl et al. (26). Briefly, collection of blood was done after an overnight fast, and serum was separated from the cells within 30 min of collection, placed on wet ice, and then shipped or transported to the central study laboratory at Loma Linda, CA for further processing. Blood was aliquoted to 0.5 mL samples and immediately stored in liquid nitrogen until analysis. Concentrations of CRP and IL-6 were measured in duplicate samples using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits from R & D Systems (Minneapolis, MN, USA) for IL-6, Thermo Fisher Scientific (Waltham, MA, USA), and Assaypro (St. Charles, MO, USA) for CRP. For IL-6, the detectable limit was 0.039 pg/mL, and intra- and inter-assay CV were 6.9 and 7.2%; and for CRP, these were 100 pg/mL, 5.5 and 7.6%, respectively.

Blood pressure (BP), weight, height, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), and body composition were assessed on-site. Height was measured to the nearest quarter inch (0.64 cm) using the Seca 214 Portable Height Rod (Seca Corp, Hamburg, Germany). Weight (measured to the nearest half pound or 0.23 kg) and body composition were assessed using a body composition analyzer (Tanita, Model TBF-300A, Arlington Heights, IL, USA). Waist circumference was obtained using an anthropometric tape placed around the waist just above the hipbone.

Blood pressure and resting pulse were assessed each as the average of three measurements using the OMRON Digital Blood Pressure Monitor HEM-7471C (Omron Healthcare Inc., Vernon Hills, IL, USA). All subjects were subject to a standard protocol, including a 5 min quiet relaxation period prior to the first reading of BP and resting pulse, and 1 min rest between consecutive measurements.
Classification of Vegetarian Diet

Dietary intake was assessed using two methods: (1) A single 24 h recall using standard methodology that has been discussed previously (27), (2) Survey items adapted from EPIC Oxford where subjects were also asked about their consumption (in the past 30 days) of four animal-based products (meat, fish, dairy, and eggs). Using the latter method to survey usual intake, participants were classified as non-vegetarian if they currently eat meat; pescatarian if they eat no meat but eat fish; lacto-ovo vegetarian if they eat dairy and eggs but not meat or fish; and strict vegetarian if they do not consume meat, eggs, fish and dairy. Due to the limited sample size, strict vegetarians, lacto-ovo vegetarians, and pescatarians were considered as following a plant-based diet and collapsed into a “vegetarian” group. Survey items measuring meat intake among Seventh-day Adventists have been validated against multiple 24 h recalls with correlations that exceed 0.80 (27).
Assessment of Demographic, Religiosity, and Culture-Specific Data

We obtained demographic, spoken language, nativity and religiosity data by questionnaire. Religiosity was assessed by asking the question, “How religious are you?” where we defined “religious” as having “to do with a personal experience and not just a behavior, like going to church.” Responses were elicited using a 10-point semantic differential scale where 1 represents not religious at all and 10 the most religious.
Statistics

Descriptive analyses comparing vegetarians and non-vegetarians on selected subject characteristics were conducted using t-tests for continuous, and χ2 or Fisher test for categorical variables. Continuous outcome variables (anthropometric, body composition, pulse, and blood pressure measures) were compared in vegetarians and non-vegetarians using generalized linear models adjusted for age, sex, and education. Ninety-five percent confidence intervals for the difference between these adjusted means were computed using the standard errors of the regression coefficients in the models.
Results

In Table 1, we examined demographics characteristics of Hispanic/Latino subjects in the AMEN study. We found that vegetarians tended to be older (p = 0.006) and more educated (p = 0.02) as compared to non-vegetarians (Table 1). There was no significant difference in religiosity between the vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

Vegetarian Diet and Adiposity

In linear regression models (Table 2), we tested the association between measures of adiposity (BMI, waist circumference (WC), fat mass, and percent body fat) as outcomes and vegetarian diet status as a main exposure. We found that BMI was lower among the vegetarians than the non-vegetarians (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006) after adjusting for age, sex, and education. Vegetarians also had significantly lower waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5 cm), fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg), and percent body fat (28.4% vs. 32%) as compared to non-vegetarians. Pulse rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure values among vegetarians were not significantly different from those of non-vegetarians.

Vegetarian Diet, Adiposity, and Inflammatory Markers

We found that log-transformed interleukin-6 (IL-6) was positively associated with the following adiposity outcomes: BMI (β = 1.64, p = 0.04), waist circumference (β = 1.32, p = 0.08), fat mass (β = 1.32, p = 0.05), and fat percent (β = 4.22, p = 0.004). Adding the main exposure for vegetarian status to the model did not appreciably reduce these associations. For log transformed C-reactive protein (CRP), positive associations were found for fat mass (β = 2.38, p = 0.03) and fat percent (β = 3.13, p = 0.004). Similarly, adding the main exposure did not change CRP associations with measures of adiposity. We note that the power to detect mediation was low, making type 1 errors more likely.

There were no significant differences between vegetarians and non-vegetarians for log-transformed CRP (β = −0.06562, p = 0.78) or log-transformed IL-6 (β = −0.19132, p = 0.29).
Discussion

In the AMEN study, we found that in a sample of Seventh-day Adventist Hispanic/Latino adults, those following a vegetarian dietary pattern had a BMI that was lower (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006) and within federally-recommended limits as compared to non-vegetarians. These findings were confirmed by similar decreases in other measures of adiposity [fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg), and percent body fat (28.4% vs. 32%)] and abdominal adiposity [waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5cm)].

These findings are concordant with findings from non-Hispanic white Adventists (18, 19, 22), Black/African American Adventists (22, 25), and Asian Adventists (20). For Black Adventists, Akbar et al. has reported a “cultural tailoring” of the vegetarian diet chosen whereby Southern and Caribbean influenced dietary patterns introduced a wide range of plant foods into the diet (24). In US-based Asian Indian Adventists, Singh reported the predominance of nuts as a major source of protein in vegetarians who were at lower BMI (20).

Our next step in the AMEN study was to investigate how the protective patterns of plant-based eating in Hispanic/Latino adults were influenced by cultural preference for specific plant foods. These data can potentially inform culturally-tailored plant-based dietary interventions for the broader population of US Hispanic/Latinos who have been experiencing a nutrition transition away from simpler, more traditional diets rich in whole plant foods.
Plant-Based Eating in US Hispanic/Latinos

Our data indicates that more plant-based eating in US-based Hispanic/Latino Adventist adults was associated on average with adiposity indices falling within the federally-recommended limits. If this association holds true also for non-Adventist Hispanics/Latinos, how feasible and scalable is it to have Adventist and non-Adventist Hispanics/Latinos increase their plant-based dietary choices as a means of preventing the obesity and cardiometabolic diseases that are disproportionately prevalent in their community?

When considering this question it is noteworthy that data from Latin America indicate a rich cultural tradition of eating and preparing a diverse range of regional plant foods. For example, the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico traditionally adhered to a diet consisting of beans, corn, and squash and very little meat, and this pattern has been associated with lower risk of cardiometabolic disease (28) and can be significantly compromised by plying the Tarahumara with a typical U.S. diet (29). Studies from South America report that vegan and semi-vegetarian Peruvian and Brazilian subjects (following traditional cultural choices involving plant foods) do have lower rates of hypertension, dyslipidemia, and obesity as compared to omnivores (30). These small studies provide clues that increasing plant-based diet choices based on long-held cultural traditions of eating whole plant foods can potentially be an attractive target for high impact interventions. When designing dietary interventions we note that the strict vegetarian diet pattern is not commonly practiced by US Hispanic/Latinos (31), and further research is needed in this community to examine whether increasing plant food intake to the point of semi-vegetarian or pescatarian pattern can improve health outcomes.
Plant-Based Eating, Pro-Inflammatory Cytokines, and Obesity in Hispanic/Latinos

Among the Hispanic/Latino adults of the AMEN study, we did find that measures of adiposity were associated with pro-inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-6. Compared to non-vegetarian dietary patterns, vegetarian dietary patterns generate increased microbially-generated short chain fatty acids, which reduce systemic inflammation (e.g., IL-6), increase hormonal satiety-signaling (e.g., glucagon-like peptide-1) and reduce insulin resistance (32, 33). Among Hispanic/Latino subjects, recent studies suggest that IL-6 may be elevated from a young age, and the link across the lifespan to higher rates of cardiometabolic disease may be due to specific IL-6 polymorphisms in Latino youth (34). Interestingly, adding IL-6 to our models examining association with vegetarian diet exposure did not alter the protective effect of the diet on obesity.
Limitations

The AMEN study has important limitations. The cross-sectional and observational design precludes inferring a causal effect from the association of diet with obesity and obesity-related disease. The purpose of our pilot study was to generate culturally-specific hypotheses for testing this association in longitudinal and experimental designs with novel culturally-tailored interventions.

The relatively small sample size limited our statistical power to test more complex food and nutrient models, and for testing interaction and mediation. We note, however, the significant and cross-validating associations between plant-based eating and measures of adiposity that persist despite the limited power to detect these associations.

Religiosity could also be a factor since we are studying a faith-based group. It is noteworthy, however, that we observed no difference in religiosity between the vegetarians and non-vegetarians we studied. Measurement error in dietary assessment is always present in observational work, but we note a decades-long track record by our research group validating diet and vegetarian diet survey measures in Adventists (16, 17, 35).
Conclusions

Our findings from Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists indicate that plant-based diet patterns were associated with adiposity in the recommended range, and effects were consistent across multiple measures of adiposity and obesity-related inflammatory markers. Further studies of how Hispanics/Latinos have culturally tailored the Adventist plant-based eating pattern could potentially inform interventions for the broader population of Hispanics/Latinos.

          D’Angelo Russell y los Nets sorprenden a Sixers en inicio de playoffs de la NBA      Comment   Translate Page      

LOS ANGELES, ESTADOS UNIDOS. Los Brooklyn Nets dieron la sorpresa este sábado en casa de los Philadelphia 76ers al llevarse la victoria 111-102 en el primer encuentro de los playoffs de la NBA.

Los Nets, sextos de la Conferencia Este, visitaban Filadelfia luego de haber sido barridos en temporada regular.

Pero los visitantes, con un juego rápido y eficaz, cerraron las vías de anotación de sus rivales y se beneficiaron de las molestias físicas en la rodilla del pívot camerunés Joel Embiid para terminar llevándose el triunfo en el estreno de su serie.

El armador D’Angelo Russell, luego de un mal inicio, brilló con 26 puntos y Caris LeVert con 23 saliendo desde el banco.

Los de Brooklyn cuentan con una escuadra en la que el juego colectivo es su mejor arma y que tuvo a seis de sus hombres por encima de la decena de tantos, con una serie global de 11/26 en el lanzamiento de tres.

Por los locales, Jimmy Butler se echó el equipo a sus espaldas con 36 unidades y nueve rebotes mientras Embiid contribuyó con 22 y 15 capturas pero el resto decepcionó, con Tobias Harris con cuatro puntos, J.J. Redick con cinco y Ben Simmons con nueve.

Los Sixers arrancaron bien pero un parcial de 18-1 al final del primer cuarto y el principio del segundo terminó por sentenciarlos.

Embiid estuvo lejos de su mejor nivel, tanto en ataque (5/15) como en defensa, y los locales se mostraron muy erráticos desde la línea de tres (2/25), lo que acabó condenándolos.

Solo Butler mantuvo a los suyos en el partido con un encuentro estelar pero cuando los 76ers se pusieron a ocho en el tercer periodo, Russell se lució con 13 tantos y volvió a estirar la ventaja para enfado del público local, muy crítico con el juego de su equipo durante toda la contienda.

El segundo choque se disputará el lunes, de nuevo en Filadelfia.


          Budenholzer, elegido mejor técnico de la NBA por los entrenadores      Comment   Translate Page      

LOS ANGELES, ESTADOS UNIDOS. El técnico de los Milwaukee Bucks Mike Budenholzer fue elegido este sábado mejor entrenador de la temporada por sus homólogos de la NBA anunció la Asociación Nacional de Entrenadores de Baloncesto (NBCA, por sus siglas en inglés).

Budenholzer, de 49 años, condujo a los Bucks en su primer año en Milwaukee al primer puesto de la Conferencia Este con el mejor récord de la liga al contabilizar 60 victorias y solo 22 derrotas.

“Mike Budenholzer en su primer año como entrenador en jefe de los Bucks, llevó a la franquicia al mejor registro de toda la NBA”, dijo el mánager de los Mavericks y presidente de la NBCA, Rick Carlilse, en un comunicado. “Felicidades a Bud por este prestigioso reconocimiento”.

Bajo su dirección, la franquicia de Wisconsin logró 16 triunfos más que la campaña pasada y es la única de la liga en tener uno de los cuatro mejores ataques y una de las cuatro mejores defensas del campeonato.

Los Bucks, cuyo único título data de 1971, chocarán ahora en la primera ronda de playoffs contra los Detroit Pistons.

Este premio es diferente al que entrega anualmente la NBA, que se dará a conocer a finales de junio tras una votación entre periodistas especializados.

Antes de que Budenholzer se hiciera cargo del equipo, Milwaukee terminó la temporada 2017-18 con 44 victorias. La franquicia no había logrado 50 victorias desde 2000-01, pero bajo Budenholzer, el equipo terminó dos juegos por delante de los Raptors (58–24) en el Este para ser el primer sembrado de esta Conferencia.

“Es un honor increíble ser reconocido por sus colegas, y eso hace que este premio sea realmente especial”, dijo Budenholzer en un comunicado. “Gracias a mis colegas en la NBA, y lo más importante, gracias a nuestros jugadores y al personal en Milwaukee. El trabajo de los jugadores y el personal de este año le ha dado a nuestro equipo y a nuestros fanáticos una temporada muy especial”.

          Harmonic Convergence | The Beatles meet Elvis Presley      Comment   Translate Page      
For almost as long as there's been rock 'n' roll, Los Angeles has been a city at the center of its history and mythology, a town in which legends are made, burned, rebuilt, merchandised, forgotten. The city has had its fair share of native rock talent, and has been the adopted home of many more singular rockin'’ careers, but perhaps the greatest of L.A.'s rock 'n' roll tête-à-têtes occurred on a still summer night in 1965, high up in the rarefied climes of Bel Air. There, in a splendid home on Perugia Way, Elvis met the Beatles.

          Crítica - Constantine: Cidade de Demônios       Comment   Translate Page      

Os demônios internos e externos do mago.

AVISO: A crítica abaixo contém SPOILERS. 

Assim como Combatentes da Liberdade, a produção é uma série de 5 episódios unificados, somado à mais cenas inéditas, para compor um filme de 90 minutos. Felizmente, não há qualquer relação cronológica com o Arrowverse e não teria porque, afinal de contas a proposta do longa volta-se para uma aproximação com o teor de brutalidade dos quadrinhos de Hellblazer (e só para avisar: o que li de Constantine nas HQs foram apenas edições dos Novos 52 da Liga da Justiça Sombria e a terceira fase de Injustice: Deuses Entre Nós, portanto o meu conhecimento é um tanto limitado com relação ao microcosmo do personagem em si), apesar de eu crer que no material-fonte o bicho pega com muito mais sanguinolência e capirotagem, e exatamente nisso que o filme demonstra o maior acerto trazendo violência implacável contribuindo para a atmosfera.

Na trama, John e seu amigo Chas lutam contra o tempo para salvar a alma da garota Trish (filha de Chas) que foi submetida a um coma sobrenatural, mas para isso terão de percorrer caminhos obscuros, logicamente, sobretudo negociando com um dos inimigos. É uma sequência da animação de Liga da Justiça Sombria embora esteja incluída no catálogo do CW Seed, serviço de streaming da CW, e consta o nome de Matt Ryan, o intérprete do mago ocultista na finada (T_T) série live-action (e que foi introduzido no universo compartilhado a partir da quarta temporada de Arrow), como ator de voz do personagem. Um plot bem menor numa análise fria, mas com dotes de seguimento no sentido de apresentar as variadas peças desse mundo paranormal, basicamente numa tour por esse inferno terrestre habitado pelos mais diversos monstros abomináveis com os quais Constantine está acostumado a lidar e peitar. É de uma riqueza visual muito abrangente e inspiradora.

Na qualidade de animação em geral, o resultado sai relativamente melhorado em comparação com o visto no longa da equipe sobrenatural que contou com a participação do Batman (aqui está a review). Pelo menos expressa nos designs a aparência que denota um longa-metragem animado, sobressaindo também na paleta de cores. O filme não poupa espirros de sangue e o tom gore é parte dessa construção digna para uma história envolvendo um Constantine mergulhado na culpa e no desespero para consertar erros de modo a impedir que vidas inocentes sejam ceifadas. Mas sua pior maldição persiste firmemente. Ele carrega esse fardo imutável para todos os lugares que passa. Alguém que cruza seu caminho estará fadado a sofrer um destino perverso nas mãos das forças demoníacas que atazanam sua vida. De uma forma ou de outra, nada acaba bem para quem forja aliança com o mago. Os demônios estão bestialmente fantásticos no desenho, principalmente Nergal, o grande vilão da parada que foi responsável por um massacre visceral num show de rock onde Constantine e Chas estavam e perpetrou uma tragédia na vida do mago. Eu até gostaria que os dilemas morais de Constantine e o prosseguimento da trama caminhassem balanceados pela existência de um terror psicológico devido à tragédia pessoal.

O desfecho da batalha para salvar a alma de Trish só provou aquilo que é inalterável, praticamente uma ordem natural no que concerne o misticismo de magia negra: Tudo leva a um preço. As memórias de Trish e sua mãe acerca de Chas foram perdidas com o feitiço de Constantine. Nesse ápice do conflito, a necessidade de conveniência falou mais alto e o mago agarrou um golpe de sorte para obliterar Nergal já que o demônio anteriormente fingiu se intimidar com a chantagem de Constantine que ameaçou liberar um exército de demônios em Los Angeles, o que tocava na ferida de Nergal e sua mania de grandeza que o motivava a eliminar toda e qualquer concorrência. Pode não ter sido tão convincente da parte de Constantine para resolução do caso, mas serviu para ressaltar esse fardo terrível que persegue a vida do mago.

As presenças femininas de Enfermeira do Pesadelo e da Rainha dos Anjos (safadinha heheheh) complementam a experiência agradável e tendo seus respectivos papéis valorizados, cada um precisamente de acordo com os desenrolares principais (uma ressalva pela Rainha dos Anjos e seu acordo com Nergal que não teve grande peso para o plot inteiro).

Considerações finais:

No mais, Constantine: Cidade de Demônios soube proporcionar o impacto medido para deixar o espectador interessado, além de ser uma história que explora bem as características cruciais em prol dos detalhes sinistros que fazem a trama adotar seus ares de produção madura e, é claro, também à Constantine e suas constantes lutas internas e externas que reafirmam o seu karma doloroso. Se nem o próprio Constantine gosta de estar na sua própria pele, quem mais gostaria?

PS1: Até eu fiquei com nojo daquela piscina de cadáveres do Beroul. Que monstro imundo!

PS2: Na verdade, era o Nergal que usava uma carcaça de demônio para tapear o Constantine. Ou ele matou Beroul e usou a carcaça como disfarce (fiquei ajustando o áudio nessa hora e não captei direito).

PS3: O deus asteca da morte que dá preguiça de escrever (e pronunciar) o nome foi humilhado vergonhosamente por aqueles demônios. No fim das contas, mereceu somar ao pacote para se ferrar também.

PS4: O enredo, por outro lado, tem um tom meio episódico, não podia exigir mais de um plot com uma trajetória sem brechas pra tantas reviravoltas, mas enfim... uma hora e meia bem gasta.

PS5: Reservaram pitadas de humor negro do Constantine pro final na intenção de quebrar o drama. Tava demorando.

NOTA: 8,5 - BOM 

Veria de novo? Sim.

          Lakers Rumors: Before The Trade Deadline, LA Had A Multiplayer Deal In Place With The Chicago Bulls?      Comment   Translate Page      
One of the worst-kept secrets entering the 2018-19 NBA season was that the Los Angeles Lakers had plans to trade at least one of their expiring contracts by the February trade deadline. One of the leading candidates to be dealt was shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. According to The Athletic, general manager Rob Pelinka in late January had a tentative deal in place with the Chicago Bulls for forward Jabari Parker. The deal would have cost the Lakers two players: Caldwell-Pope and Michael Beasley.

          3 Rekor yang Tercipta di Musim Reguler NBA 2018-2019      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Musim reguler NBA 2018-2019 telah berakhir. Delapan tim dari Wilayah Barat dan delapan Wilayah Timur berhasil memastikan tiket ke babak play-off.

Pemain kedua yang paling banyak membuat triple double adalah center Denver Nuggets Nikola Jokic (12 kali) disusul point guard Philadelphia 76ers Ben Simmons.

          Trump sanctuary city idea could help migrants stay in U.S.      Comment   Translate Page      

PHOENIX – An idea floated by President Donald Trump to send immigrants from the border to “sanctuary cities” to exact revenge on Democratic foes could end up doing the migrants a favor by placing them in locations that make it easier to put down roots and stay in the country.

The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders. Many of these locations have more resources to help immigrants make their legal cases to stay in the United States than smaller cities, with some of the nation’s biggest immigration advocacy groups based in places like San Francisco, New York City and Chicago. The downside for the immigrants would be a high cost of living in the cities.

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University announced this week that an analysis found that immigrants in sanctuary cities such as New York and Los Angeles are 20% less likely to be arrested out in the community than in cities without such policies.

“With immigrants being less likely to commit crimes than the U.S. born population, and with sanctuary jurisdictions being safer and more productive than non-sanctuary jurisdictions, the data damns this proposal as a politically motivated stunt that seeks to play politics with peoples’ lives,” said George Gascon, district attorney for San Francisco.

Trump has grown increasingly frustrated over the situation at the border, where tens of thousands of immigrant families are crossing each month, many to claim asylum. His administration has attempted several efforts to stop the flow and he recently shook up the top ranks of the Department of Homeland Security.

The idea to ship immigrants to Democratic strongholds was considered twice in recent months, but the White House and Department of Homeland Security said the plan had been rejected. But Trump said Friday he was still considering the idea.

“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump tweeted. He added that, “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!”

Wilson Romero is an immigrant from Honduras who chose to settle in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Romero, 27, was separated from his daughter, now 7, by federal authorities at the U.S. border at El Paso, Texas, last year and jailed for three months before being released and making his way to live with his mother in San Jose, California. There he was reunited with his daughter, who attends public kindergarten.

Romero says he goes about daily errands in public without worry of discrimination. His daughter has made friends and has playdates with the children of Mexican American families. It’s a far cry from his hometown in the violence-plagued outskirts of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, that he fled after his brother-in-law was killed.

To him, the biggest problem with being in the Bay Area is the high cost of living. The former textile factory worker relies on his mother’s income from waitressing for food and clothing, and he’s started thinking about asking legal permission to move to North Carolina, where an uncle resides and says it’s cheaper to live and work.

“To tell the truth, it’s a little tight now, financially speaking,” said Romero, a former textile factory worker, who said he doesn’t know of any charities that may be willing to help.

The plan discussed by Trump would also have financial, logistical and legal issues.

The transportation of immigrants who are arrested at the border to large and faraway cities would be burdensome and costly at a time when Immigration and Customs Enforcement is already stretched thin, having released over 125,000 immigrants into the country pending their immigration court since Dec. 21. They are currently being released mainly in border states.

Flights chartered by ICE cost about $7,785 per flight hour, according to the agency, and require multiple staffers, including an in-flight medical professional. The agency also uses commercial flights. Doing longer transports would increase liability for the agency, especially considering that many of the immigrants in its care are families with young children.

And despite the consideration given to releasing the immigrants on the streets to sanctuary cities, the Trump administration actually has plenty of jail space to detain families. As of April 11, the nation’s three facilities to detain immigrant families were nowhere near capacity, including a Pennsylvania facility housing only nine immigrants.

It’s also unclear how long the immigrants would stay in these cities because they are required to provide an address to federal authorities – typically of a family member – as a condition of their release.

“It’s illogical,” said Angela Chan, policy director and senior attorney with the San Francisco-based Asian Law Caucus. “It’s just alarming that they are spending so much effort and so much time to engage in political theater.”

The Trump administration has long pushed back against cities with sanctuary policies, which generally prohibit local authorities to cooperate with federal immigration police, often by refusing to hold people arrested on local charges past their release date at the request of immigration officers. Over 100 local governments around the country have adopted a variety of these polices

“New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants – the President’s empty threats won’t change that,” New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio said in a statement.

But Trump seemed ready to step up his fight with the cities, vowing to “give them an unlimited supply” of immigrants from the border.

          Hamels Helps Cubs Beat Trout-less Angels 5-1      Comment   Translate Page      
Cole Hamels loves pitching at Wrigley Field.

No matter what the conditions are.

Hamels tossed eight sparkling innings, Willson Contreras homered twice and the Chicago Cubs cooled off the short-handed Los Angeles Angels with a 5-1 victory Friday.

With the wind blowing out at Chicago's iconic ballpark, Anthony Rizzo and David Bote also connected to help Chicago win for the third time in four games on its first homestand of the year. While the Cubs had a solid day at the plate, Hamels limited the Angels to Albert Pujols' second homer and four hits total.

"Nobody would want to pitch today in their right minds. He's just a competitive guy," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "He loved coming over here last year. He wants to get back to the World Series and I think all those things you're seeing in a performance like today. Setting a great example for the rest of the group."

Hamels (2-0) struck out six and walked none while improving to 5-2 with a 2.63 ERA in 12 career starts against the Angels. He also lowered his ERA in 13 starts at Wrigley to 1.61, the best such number for any player with at least 10 starts at the 105-year-old ballpark.

"There's just a serious comfort zone," Hamels said. "To be able to have the type of crowds that I think I've been fortunate to be able to have with my starts here, even when I was a visiting team, there's tremendous energy and I think that really plays a serious part in what I do."

The Angels had won six in a row. But they were once again without star center fielder Mike Trout, who missed his second straight game after he strained his right groin during the team's last homestand.

The two-time AL MVP visited Dr. Steve Yoon in Los Angeles, and general manager Billy Eppler said Trout will be re-evaluated on Sunday — taking him out of the Angels' first trip to Wrigley since 2016.

Pujols' fourth-inning drive was his 57th homer in 183 career games against Chicago, second only to his 58 longballs against Houston. But the Angels were unable to overcome a rough outing for Tyler Skaggs (1-2), who surrendered three long home runs in his four innings.

"Other than the home runs, I think he pitched very well, actually," manager Brad Ausmus said. "The Cubs took advantage of a handful of mistakes and made him pay, but outside of those swings of the bat, I thought he was actually good."

After Kris Bryant singled with one out in the first, Rizzo drove Skaggs' next pitch to the back of bleachers in right. Rizzo's third homer of the season traveled 472 feet, according to Statcast.

Contreras hit his fourth homer with two down, making it 3-0 with a drive to left that made it to Waveland Avenue.

"I thought like I was ready to go today," Skaggs said. "Warm-up felt great, but I went out there and got touched up. It happens."

Bote added his first homer of the season in the fourth, and Contreras went deep again in the sixth. Contreras' second homer of the day also reached the street beyond the wall in left.

HE'S BACK

The Cubs paid tribute to Tommy La Stella with a pregame video in his return to Chicago after he was traded to Los Angeles in November. The 30-year-old infielder played for Chicago for four seasons, helping the Cubs win the World Series in 2016.

"I had a lot of great times here with some really special people, so it's cool to be back and play here," La Stella said.

La Stella pinch-hit for Skaggs in the fifth inning and lined out to center.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Angels: Ausmus said he thought Shohei Ohtani was going to hit off a machine Friday. The 2018 AL Rookie of the Year had Tommy John surgery last October. Ohtani has been taking batting practice for a couple weeks. "It's a baby step up," Ausmus said. The 24-year-old Ohtani isn't expected to pitch this year, but he could return to the Angels' lineup in May.

Cubs: C Victor Caratini was placed on the 10-day injured list after a CT scan confirmed he broke a bone in his left hand during Thursday night's victory over Pittsburgh. He is scheduled for surgery on Monday and is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks. C Taylor Davis was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to take his place on the roster. ... LHP Mike Montgomery (mild left lat strain) is scheduled for a bullpen session on Saturday. He likely will need at least one minor league rehab appearance before returning to the Cubs.

UP NEXT

Right-handers Chris Stratton and Kyle Hendricks get the ball on Saturday afternoon. Stratton (0-1, 6.48 ERA) picked up a no-decision in his second start for Los Angeles, allowing two runs in four-plus innings in the Angels' 7-2 victory over Texas on Sunday. Hendricks (0-2, 6.48 ERA) struggled in each of his first two outings, yielding 18 hits in 8 1/3 innings.

          Childish Gambino brings day one of Coachella to a close      Comment   Translate Page      

Rapper Childish Gambino brought day one of Coachella to a close after thousands of fans had descended on the California desert for the annual music festival. Gambino, the alter ego of actor Donald Glover, topped the bill on Friday’s opening night and will be followed by fellow headliners Tame Impala on Saturday and Ariana Grande on Sunday. Other artists set to feature over the weekend include Pusha T and the actor Idris Elba, who will be performing a DJ set. Day one saw the likes of The 1975, Janelle Monae and DJ Snake take to the Coachella stage before Gambino brought the curtain down. He opened by urging fans to put their phones away for his performance – a call ignored by many in the crowd who were already busy sharing their pictures and videos to Instagram. Gambino performed a string of hits, including Summertime Magic, II. Worldstar and I. The Worst Guys. At one point the topless hip hop star lit a cigarette before stepping into the audience and sharing it with a fan. However, by the time he delivered arguably his best-known song – the politically charged This Is America – it was more than 30 minutes past midnight local time and many weary campers had already trudged back to the refuge of their tents. It was approaching 1am when he finished the set with another of his big hits, Redbone. Earlier, country music singer Kacey Mugraves, fresh from her best album Grammy win in February, made her Coachella debut with a set on the main stage. The 30-year-old opened her set with Slow Burn, a track from her acclaimed album Golden Hour, before telling the audience: “Coachella! You guys look beautiful in this golden hour!” She was later followed by British rock band The 1975, while Jaden Smith was also among the performers. Blackpink made history when they became the first K-pop girl group to perform at the festival, with YouTube livestreaming the set on the big screen at New York City’s Times Square. Weekend one of the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival, which takes place in the Southern California city of Indio, about 127 miles east of Los Angeles, continues on Saturday and Sunday. Weekend two takes place on April 19-21.

In “The Reform of the Papacy,” Quinn had proposed a lower-profile papal office and a more collegial relationship between the pope and bishops around the world.

          CEO Disney Siap Pensiun di 2021, Kenapa?      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Burbank - CEO Disney Robert Iger siap meninggalkan Disney. Kepergian Iger terkait habisnya kontrak Iger pada tahun 2021.

Dilaporkan USA Today, Iger mengumumkan kepergian di saat acara investor yang membahas layanan streaming Disney+. Dalam acara itu, investor bertanya tanggapan Iger terkait kontraknya yang akan habis.

"Saya mengekspektasikan kontrak saya habis pada akhir 2021," ujar Iger. Ia pun memastikan bahwa tahun 2021 akan menjadi momen baginya untuk akhirnya turun.

Namun, perlu diketahui Iger sudah berkali-kali berencana pensiun sebagai pemimpin Disney. Masalahnya, rencana pensiunnya terus menerus ditunda.

Sebelumnya, Iger siap pensiun pada tahun 2018, tetapi pada tahun 2017 kontraknya diteruskan hingga 2 Juli 2019. Pada Desember lalu, kontrak Iger kembali diperpanjang hingga mencapai 2021.

Terkait penerusnya, pria yang akrab disapa Bob itu mengaku akan berbincang dengan anggota dewan Disney. Ia yakin anggota dewan dapat memilih penerus kepemimpinan Disney dan memberi proses transisi yang mulu.

Iger memiliki sejarah karier cemerlang di Disney. Pada tahun 2000 ia menjadi presiden dan chief operating officer (COO) Disney, kemudian menjadi CEO pada tahun 2005, serta mendapat posisi chairman di tahun 2012.

Disney Caplok 21st Century Fox Senilai Rp 1.000 Triliun

Poster Avengers: Endgame. (Marvel Studios)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F328637

Pada masa kepemimpinan Iger, Walt Disney resmi membeli 21st Century Fox senilai USD 71 miliar atau setara Rp 1.006 triliun (asumsi kurs USD 1 = Rp 14.180). Dengan ini semua serial Fox seperti The Simpsons sudah menjadi milik Disney.

"Ini adalah momen luar biasa dan bersejarah bagi kami, momen yang akan menciptakan nilai jangka panjang yang signifikan bagi perusahaan dan shareholder kamis," ucap CEO The Walt Disney Company Robert Iger dalam situs resmi perusahaan.

Ia pun percaya hal ini bisa memadukan kreativitas antara Disney dan 21st Century Fox, serta memberikan posisi lebih baik untuk memimpin industri hiburan dunia.

Dengan ini, Star Wars, X-Men, Modern Family, hingga The Simpsons sudah berada di satu manajemen. Ini pun membuka peluang bergabungnya X-Men dan Avengers, sebab sebelumnya karakter X-Men telah dilisensi oleh Fox.

Dilaporkan Business Insider, Disney juga bertujuan kemampuan melawan kompetitor perusahaan seperti Netflix dan Amazon. Dua perusahaan tersebut yang sedang berlomba eksistensi di dunia streaming dengan Amazon merilis layanan Prime.

Akusisi Disney ini juga memuluskan jalan Disney untuk meluncurkan layanan streaming Disney Plus mereka di tahun ini. Disney Plus akan menyajikan lima kategori: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, dan National Geographic. Biaya perbulannya ditaksir sebesar USD 5 atau Rp 70 ribu.

Sekadar catatan, Fox Corp yang memiliki Fox News, Fox Sports, dan Fox Broadcasting, tidak termasuk ke dalam kesepakan ini. Nama mereka di Nasdaq pun dibedakan antara FOX dan FOXA untuk 21st Century Fox.

Gaji CEO Disney Dipotong hingga Ratusan Miliar, Mengapa?

Rodriguez/GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F328637

Bayaran CEO Disney, Bob Iger berkurang sebanyak USD 13,5 juta pada awal Maret ini. Sayangnya pihak Disney tidak dapat membeberkan mengapa hal ini terjadi. Namun ternyata pemotongan ini sudah di setujui oleh Bob Iger sendiri.

Seperti yang dilansir pada laman CNBC, Bob mengatakan bahwa apa yang terjadi saat ini mungkin adalah yang terbaik baginya dan Disney.

Pada tahun lalu, Bob Iger mendapatkan USD 65,6  juta untuk kinerjanya. Selain itu, ia juga mendapatkan bonus hingga USD 35 juta dan perpanjangan masa jabatan hingga 2021.

Namun ternyata, tahun ini Disney pun menghapuskan kenaikan gajinya sebanyak USD 500 ribu dan membuat gajinya hanya tetap USD 3 juta. 

Tidak hanya gajinya saja, potensi bonys tunai yang dimilikinya juga akan berkurang dari USD 20 juta menjadi USD 12 juta. Serta intensif jangka panjangnya yang turun dari USD 25 juta menjadi USD 20 juta.

          LA Doctor Experimenting on Children as Young as 8 for Transgender Therapy with Government Funding      Comment   Translate Page      
Dr. Michael Laidlaw, an endocrinologist from Rocklin, California, recently discovered via a Freedom of Information Act that a government-supported research program at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles was experimenting on children as young as 8 years old with cross-sex hormones.

Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy, who runs the Los Angeles study, received a $5.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

There are currently more than 30 clinics for transgender children in the U.S.

Olson-Kennedy’s clinic, the Center for Transyouth Health and Development at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, is the country’s largest, treating 725 children.

          Nipsey Hussle’s mother shares the last text messages he sent her      Comment   Translate Page      

Nipsey Hussle’s mother revealed the last conversation she had with her son via text message before he was murdered in Los Angeles. Angelique Smith made this known during before a crowd of about 21,000 people at the memorial service held for her son at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. Keeping her composure as she dressed in an all-white gown and matching ruffled hat, Nipsey Hussle’s mother told the crowd: “My heart feels as if there’s possibly heaviness in your heart and soul”. She recalled texting Nipsey Hussle on March 30 — the day before has gunned down. “Ermias says, ‘No mom. I’m A-1.’ That’s what he would always tell me,” Smith recalled, “Ever since he was a boy, pain did not faze him. He took it like a champ.” The rapper followed up with another message to his mom. “I’m grateful I have a studio again. I’m just happy and ready to work,” he told her. Exhaling deeply, she said: “I’m very proud of my son. My son, Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was a great man.” His young nephew Khalil Kimble had the audience at the packed Staples Center holding back tears as he recalled a dream on April 2. […]

          CEO Disney Siap Pensiun di 2021, Kenapa?      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Burbank - CEO Disney Robert Iger siap meninggalkan Disney. Kepergian Iger terkait habisnya kontrak Iger pada tahun 2021.

Dilaporkan USA Today, Iger mengumumkan kepergian di saat acara investor yang membahas layanan streaming Disney+. Dalam acara itu, investor bertanya tanggapan Iger terkait kontraknya yang akan habis.

"Saya mengekspektasikan kontrak saya habis pada akhir 2021," ujar Iger. Ia pun memastikan bahwa tahun 2021 akan menjadi momen baginya untuk akhirnya turun.

Namun, perlu diketahui Iger sudah berkali-kali berencana pensiun sebagai pemimpin Disney. Masalahnya, rencana pensiunnya terus menerus ditunda.

Sebelumnya, Iger siap pensiun pada tahun 2018, tetapi pada tahun 2017 kontraknya diteruskan hingga 2 Juli 2019. Pada Desember lalu, kontrak Iger kembali diperpanjang hingga mencapai 2021.

Terkait penerusnya, pria yang akrab disapa Bob itu mengaku akan berbincang dengan anggota dewan Disney. Ia yakin anggota dewan dapat memilih penerus kepemimpinan Disney dan memberi proses transisi yang mulu.

Iger memiliki sejarah karier cemerlang di Disney. Pada tahun 2000 ia menjadi presiden dan chief operating officer (COO) Disney, kemudian menjadi CEO pada tahun 2005, serta mendapat posisi chairman di tahun 2012.

Disney Caplok 21st Century Fox Senilai Rp 1.000 Triliun

Pada masa kepemimpinan Iger, Walt Disney resmi membeli 21st Century Fox senilai USD 71 miliar atau setara Rp 1.006 triliun (asumsi kurs USD 1 = Rp 14.180). Dengan ini semua serial Fox seperti The Simpsons sudah menjadi milik Disney.

"Ini adalah momen luar biasa dan bersejarah bagi kami, momen yang akan menciptakan nilai jangka panjang yang signifikan bagi perusahaan dan shareholder kamis," ucap CEO The Walt Disney Company Robert Iger dalam situs resmi perusahaan.

Ia pun percaya hal ini bisa memadukan kreativitas antara Disney dan 21st Century Fox, serta memberikan posisi lebih baik untuk memimpin industri hiburan dunia.

Dengan ini, Star Wars, X-Men, Modern Family, hingga The Simpsons sudah berada di satu manajemen. Ini pun membuka peluang bergabungnya X-Men dan Avengers, sebab sebelumnya karakter X-Men telah dilisensi oleh Fox.

Dilaporkan Business Insider, Disney juga bertujuan kemampuan melawan kompetitor perusahaan seperti Netflix dan Amazon. Dua perusahaan tersebut yang sedang berlomba eksistensi di dunia streaming dengan Amazon merilis layanan Prime.

Akusisi Disney ini juga memuluskan jalan Disney untuk meluncurkan layanan streaming Disney Plus mereka di tahun ini. Disney Plus akan menyajikan lima kategori: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, dan National Geographic. Biaya perbulannya ditaksir sebesar USD 5 atau Rp 70 ribu.

Sekadar catatan, Fox Corp yang memiliki Fox News, Fox Sports, dan Fox Broadcasting, tidak termasuk ke dalam kesepakan ini. Nama mereka di Nasdaq pun dibedakan antara FOX dan FOXA untuk 21st Century Fox.

Gaji CEO Disney Dipotong hingga Ratusan Miliar, Mengapa?

Rodriguez/GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F351790

Bayaran CEO Disney, Bob Iger berkurang sebanyak USD 13,5 juta pada awal Maret ini. Sayangnya pihak Disney tidak dapat membeberkan mengapa hal ini terjadi. Namun ternyata pemotongan ini sudah di setujui oleh Bob Iger sendiri.

Seperti yang dilansir pada laman CNBC, Bob mengatakan bahwa apa yang terjadi saat ini mungkin adalah yang terbaik baginya dan Disney.

Pada tahun lalu, Bob Iger mendapatkan USD 65,6  juta untuk kinerjanya. Selain itu, ia juga mendapatkan bonus hingga USD 35 juta dan perpanjangan masa jabatan hingga 2021.

Namun ternyata, tahun ini Disney pun menghapuskan kenaikan gajinya sebanyak USD 500 ribu dan membuat gajinya hanya tetap USD 3 juta. 

Tidak hanya gajinya saja, potensi bonys tunai yang dimilikinya juga akan berkurang dari USD 20 juta menjadi USD 12 juta. Serta intensif jangka panjangnya yang turun dari USD 25 juta menjadi USD 20 juta.


          World's largest plane successfully completes maiden flight      Comment   Translate Page      

Los Angeles, April 14 (IANS) The world's largest aircraft, developed by aerospace venture Stratolaunch, completed its first flight test on Saturday.

With a dual fuselage design and wingspan greater than the length of an American football field, the airplane took off from Mojave Air and Space Port in California at 6:58 am (Pacific Time), said Stratolaunch in a statement, Xinhua reported.

Achieving a maximum speed of 189 miles (302.4 km) per hour, the plane flew for 2.5 hours over the Mojave Desert at altitudes up to 17,000 feet.

As part of the initial flight, the pilots evaluated aircraft performance and handling qualities before landing successfully back at the Mojave Air and Space Port, according to the company's statement.

"What a fantastic first flight," said Jean Floyd, CEO of Stratolaunch.

"Today's flight furthers our mission to provide a flexible alternative to ground launched systems. We are incredibly proud of the Stratolaunch team, today's flight crew, our partners at Northrup Grumman's Scaled Composites and the Mojave Air and Space Port," he added.

Regarding initial results from Saturday's test flight, Stratolaunch said the test team performed a variety of flight control maneuvers to calibrate speed and test flight control systems, including roll doublets, yawing maneuvers, pushovers and pull-ups, and steady heading side slips.

Moreover, it conducted simulated landing approach exercises at a max altitude of 15,000 feet mean sea level.

Stratolaunch was founded by the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2011 to develop the large carrier airplane as a flying launch pad for orbital-class rockets.

The aircraft has a world-record wingspan of 385 feet, and is 238 feet long. It is wider than any airplane on the planet. It weighs half a million pounds, according to a CNN report.

"A historic milestone for the #Stratolaunch team with this record setting aircraft taking flight! This is about going to the edge of space and beyond!" tweeted Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA Science Mission Directorate.

"I only wish the late @PaulGAllen could see this - his memory and impact lives on," he tweeted.

Dozens of photographers, industry bloggers and aerospace enthusiasts gathered this week to glimpse the unique twin-fuselage plane.

          Stratolaunch, the giant aircraft developed by Paul Allen, just took its first flight in California      Comment   Translate Page      

Stratolaunch flight(AP Photo/Matt Hartman)

  • The Stratolaunch, an aircraft developed to air-launch small satellites, took its first flight on Saturday.
  • Stratolaunch calls its aircraft the world's largest, and it has the world's longest wingspan, though other aircraft exceed it in length.
  • Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A giant six-engine aircraft with the world's longest wingspan landed its first flight after some two hours in the air Saturday.

The behemoth, twin-fuselage Stratolaunch jet lifted off from Mojave Air and Space Port and climbed into the desert sky 70 miles north of Los Angeles. Founded by the late billionaire Paul G. Allen, Stratolaunch is vying to be a contender in the market for air-launching small satellites.

The aircraft is designed to carry as many as three satellite-laden rockets at a time under the center of its enormous wing, which stretches 385 feet — a longer wingspan than any other aircraft. At an altitude of 35,000 feet, the rockets would be released, ignite their engines and soar into space.

The advantages of such air-launch systems include being able to use numerous airports and avoid the limitations of fixed launch sites which can be affected by weather, air traffic and ship traffic on ocean ranges.

Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft, founded Stratolaunch Systems Corp. in 2011 after emerging in aerospace by funding the development of the experimental air-launched SpaceShipOne, which in 2004 became the first privately built manned rocket to reach space.

After Allen's death in October 2018, Stratolaunch dropped plans to develop its own type of rocket engine and a family of launch vehicles, focusing instead on getting the giant plane airborne and launching Northrop Grumman's proven Pegasus XL.
