Advertisement Twitter Feige went on to compare Reeves to Jake Gyllenhaal, saying that they talked to the Spider-Man: Far From Home star “multiple times” until the perfect role (Mysterio) appeared. They’re hoping a similar situation will occur with Revees, and that he will join the wide world of Marvel when the right role presents itself.Reeves is currently having a wildly successful 2019, so it’s no surprise his name keeps coming up. This year, the actor has already starred in John Wick 3, and made waves appearing as himself in Netflix’s hilarious rom-com Always Be My Maybe. The actor is also lending his voice to the upcoming Toy Story 4. Reeves is portraying Duke Caboom, a Canadian Evel Knievel-like stunt motorcyclist.In addition to Reeves, Davis also asked about Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things, Godzilla: King of the Monsters), and while Feige called them both “good actors” and admitted they’d be fun to see in the MCU, he added that “nothing specific” was currently on the table for them.Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 2nd.

Recently, ComicBook.com’s own Brandon Davis had the opportunity to chat with Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, during the upcoming movie’s press junket in London. Feige revealed lots of information, including the exciting news that Avengers: Endgame is getting re-released in theaters with new footage. Davis took the time to ask the producer about the potential future involvement of some big names in the MCU, including the Internet’s current boyfriend: Keanu Reeves.“A couple of actors I want to ask you about. Keanu Reeves: you guys talking to him for anything?,” Davis asked.“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige laughed. “We talk to Keanu Reeves about. I don’t know when, if, or ever he’ll join the MCU, but we very much want to figure out the right way to do it.” Advertisement
EDMONTON — A right-leaning think tank is blaming population growth and spending increases well above inflation for the current budget crisis in Alberta.[np_storybar title=”Alberta likely to sink into recession this year even if oil rebounds to $65: Conference Board” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2015/01/13/alberta-to-likely-to-sink-into-recession-this-year-even-if-oil-rebounds-to-65/”%5DThe Conference Board of Canada has begun using the “r-word” to describe the fallout in Alberta from the collapse in oil prices. The think tank’s chief economist is now predicting that Alberta will move into a recession this year if crude oil prices remain low. Keep reading. [/np_storybar]The Fraser Institute says the province has spent $49 billion more than necessary, mostly in unreformed public-sector pensions and public-sector contracts that were double the rate of inflation.Author Mark Milke calls his report “Fumbling the Alberta Advantage.”He says Premier Jim Prentice’s warning that the drop in oil prices will drain $7 billion from expected government revenues ignores the effect of past decisions to ramp up program spending.The study also notes that the increase in program expenditures has handcuffed the government in terms of options in such areas such as capital spending, tax relief and deposits into the Alberta Heritage Savings Trust Fund.Mortgage firms tighten lending standards in Calgary as housing boom turns sourLower oil prices strike at heart of oilsands productionThe last government deposit into the province’s rainy day fund happened in 2006-07.Meantime, ATB Financial’s Todd Hirsch says the report misses the mark.He says what many people don’t realize is that salaries and wages make up a large portion of any organization’s budget, and so there’s something ultimately wrong with the “inflation plus population growth” equation.
Those are words I never expected to type, three years ago. According to new numbers from research firm Canalys, Apple is the third largest global maker of PCs, smaller than only HP and Acer. Of course, as one might imagine, there’s a pretty major caveat here that puts the company just ahead of Dell (the two manufacturers are at 11.5 and 11.4 million shipped units, respectively)–the number includes iPads shipped. Apple nabbed 10.8 percent of the total PCs shipped globally for the fourth quarter of 2010 (HP and Acer got 17.7 and 13.6 percent). When the company’s popular tablet is factored in, Apple’s shipping volume increased 240 percent from Q4 2009 to Q4 2010 (versus a less staggering 19 percent growth of the industry overall). Canalys justified the inclusion of the iPad thusly, Any argument that a pad is not a PC is simply out of sync. With screen sizes of seven inches or above, ample processing power, and a growing number of applications, pads offer a computing experience comparable to netbooks. They compete for the same customers and will happily coexist. As with smart phones, some users will require a physical keyboard, while others will do without.
Yiorgos Katsikis, a beloved husband and father from Vlahopoulo Messinias, took his last breath a month ago. However, the funeral of this generous man will never take place. As during his life, thus after his death, Mr Katsikis has always been devoted to helping people. When Yiorgos Katsikis underwent heart surgery five years ago, it was the moment when, inside him, a respect for medical scientists started growing bigger and bigger. His ultimate wish was to donate his body to science and he believed in his decision. Yiorgos Katsikis passed away four months after his body donation consent form was accepted. He donated his body to the Body Donor Program of the University of Melbourne, for the purposes of anatomical examination and teaching and study of medical science. For the late Yiorgos, helping out your fellow man was the biggest gift anyone could give. From the same point of view, the Greek Orthodox Church has no objection to body donation to science. The act, as well as organ donation, is seen as an act of solidarity and sacrifice among human persons. As with every other procedure, body donation follows a set of rules, limitations and official paperwork. Not everyone can donate their body to science. To be accepted as a donor to the University’s Body Donor Program, the official paperwork must be submitted and the donor is later notified of their eligibility. If the person passes away in a public space, by law the body is taken by the coroner for the death cause to be examined. However, if the deceased wanted to donate their body to science, the body won’t be accepted if the autopsy has been performed. Other circumstances that may lead to donation being rejected include if the cause of death is associated with significant disease, or if death occurs in areas outside certain geographical boundaries – in Melbourne, for example, at a distance of more than 60 km from Melbourne’s CBD. Bodies that have been donated to the university body donor programs are used in the education and training of future healthcare professionals. The body is kept for about three years, though in many cases it may be less than that. On completion of studies, each body is cremated and the ashes returned on the request of the family. In Victoria, application and consent forms for body donation are submitted to the University of Melbourne, which leads the only accredited program in Victoria for people who wish to donate their bodies. Every year, the University of Melbourne accepts around 150 bodies. A precedent for the Greek community of Australia, the body donation of Yiorgos Katsikis to science is still a rare gift in Australia. For this reason, bodies are often being imported from China for the purposes of medical science. Other body donor programs in Australia include The University of NSW, The University of Western Australia, The University of Tasmania, Australian National University, University of Queensland, University of Adelaide and others.

It is essential that N’Golo Kante reproduces his superb performance against Argentina in the last-16 for France today in their semi-final tie with Belgium, says France boss Didier DeschampsThe Chelsea midfielder’s heroics during that match saw him silence a five-time Ballon d’Or winner in Lionel Messi and he will now be expected to do more of the same against his club teammate and Belgium captain Eden Hazard.Speaking ahead of the last four encounter, Deschamps acknowledged Kante’s importance for the side.“N’Golo will have an important role, like he does in each match,” said the 49-year-old, according to ESPN.“There will be some tweaks, though, which will suit us better.“N’Golo is an essential element because of his work rate, the number of balls he recovers for us, as well as his positioning — he often cuts out cross-field passes aimed at their attack.“We saw N’Golo up against Argentina’s Messi — he was given a specific role, and he did exactly what was asked of him.”Report: Zinedine Zidane could also want N’Golo Kante Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 12, 2019 Following his policy of signing French players for Real Madrid, it has been reported that Zidane might like N’Golo Kante.As we continue with our…Les Bleus won’t be having it easy when it comes to reaching the final of the World Cup with Belgium and their “golden generation” out to repeat their brilliant 2-1 win over five-time winners Brazil in the quarter-finals.But Deschamps has ideas on how to spoil their party.“My team will be ready for a variety of situations,” he said.“The Belgians did not reach this stage playing one style of football — they changed things up against Brazil.“Will they do it again, against us? It is a possibility. I will make sure that my players are ready to play in different shapes and systems, which we alter mid-match.“It will be nothing specific to Belgium — we already did the same for our other opponents.”France and Belgium will face off at the Saint Petersburg stadium at 20:00 (GMT +2).

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, May 12, 2017 – Nassau – The recently elected president of the Bahamas Real Estate Association yesterday called for greater cooperation, consultation and participation with the newly elected government, declaring “together, we can help drive one of the most important engines of the Bahamian economy.”Christine Wallace-Whitfield, president of the 500+-member strong association of property professionals, offered congratulations to the incoming government, adding she hoped the organization and government could strengthen ties to promote, oversee and grow the multi-billion dollar industry. “BREA has a laundry list of issues to deal with and we look forward to working on those together with the new government,” said Wallace-Whitfield, a broker with Island Living Real Estate. Chief among those issues, Wallace-Whitfield said, is establishment of a land registry. “We are one of the last countries in the world that still does not have a land registry. Although the increased use of the Multiple Listing Service is helping greatly in this regard, having a registry will help to elevate the industry to the next level. We are all but using paper and pen in a digital age and the lack of a registry prevents us from providing basic information that is available in other places, including comparable prices, length of time property in a certain area remains on the market and other basics that today’s buyer needs to know. With most property searches starting online, the prospective buyer expects to see this information and we simply have no way to provide it absent a registry.” Wallace-Whitfield said BREA also wants to see a Real Estate Advisory Board, a concept introduced by another leading broker, Mario Carey, and discussed with the previous administration. The proposed board would advise on key issues ranging from short-term rentals to minimum investment for accelerated consideration of residency, from stamp tax matters to ease of refinancing-related requirements, from Crown land to generation property issues, the latter two among the most important issues for the new BREA board. For Wallace-Whitfield, industry ethics tops her personal agenda. “We have excellent cooperation with the Attorney-General’s office on ethics matters when they reach a certain level,” she said. “I want to focus our attention on ethics before they reach that point. The success of our industry and the confidence people place in Bahamas real estate is tied to perceptions about honesty and integrity.” Wallace-Whitfield said BREA would consider ways to step up broker responsibility for new agents, both in knowledge and in standards of conduct. “One new agent I know of, for instance, showed so much promise, passing her real estate exam with flying colours and being greeted with open arms by the firm she joined because she had all the right attributes, enthusiasm, personality, intelligence. And then she went out on her first few visits to take a listing or show a property based on a call that came in to the office and she felt so lost. Eventually, she just gave up and moved on to something else,” said Wallace-Whitfield. “She was a real loss and it should not have happened to her after all her commitment. But we have no way to ensure proper post-exam training in the field and other agents often don’t want to impart or share what they have learned. To keep any industry vibrant and vital, you need fresh ideas.” #BahamasRealEstateAssociation Related Items:#BahamasRealEstateAssociation

Would-be electric car manufacturer Faraday Future has pulled another unlikely rabbit out of its hat. While the serially troubled startup has shown a very promising EV, the company has, of late, become better known for its dramatic, feast-or-famine business developments. Late Sunday, the company announced that it has signed a 50/50 joint venture partnership with The9 Limited, a Chinese concern that makes online video games and develops blockchain tech. The deal could be worth up to $600 million in vital support for LA-based Faraday Future.According to a statement from The9, the company will make an initial deposit of $5 million to help Faraday Future with its near-term financial woes. But it’s not immediately clear what terms The9 will require of Faraday in order to trigger further tranches of investment en route to that potential $600 million limit. As part of the agreement detailed in a Faraday Future statement, the struggling automotive startup has agreed to locate construction of a new model, dubbed the V9, in China. The new EV, which will be designed for the Chinese market, is to be based on the FF91, the incredibly quick, tech-rich and luxurious six-figure crossover SUV with which Faraday Future wowed audiences at CES 2017. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 review: Let it semi-autonomously chauffeur your chauffeur 0 Share your voice Post a comment 91 Photos Holy crap, Faraday Future finally unveiled its first electric car! Faraday has been hemorrhaging red ink and key employees in recent years. Its previous partnership with a Chinese real estate conglomerate, Evergrande, went south in spectacular fashion last October. In late 2017, Evergrande committed to spend up to $2 billion to finance Faraday Future and get the FF91 to market, but Faraday burned through $800 million of that investment by mid-2018 without building a single salable car. With production still seemingly a long way off, Evergrande and Faraday became locked in a protracted and very public battle that nearly ended the automaker for good. The two parties mended fences in late 2018, opening the door to Faraday seeking new funding, like this very deal.While the deal with The9 Limited is both surprising and encouraging, it’s worth remembering that Faraday’s new investor has only initially agreed to shell out $5 million in the near term. It’s also not immediately clear how much money The9 Limited actually has at its disposal. The gaming company, which is best known for launching China’s first virtual currency and for being the company to once hold the exclusive rights to World of Warcraft in China, is listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange and is said to be worth over $100 million. 43 Photos More From Roadshow According to Faraday’s release, “the expected annual production capacity of the joint venture is 300,000 cars,” although it isn’t immediately clear if all of that capacity is for the V9. If the new model is priced anywhere in the vicinity of where the 1,050-horsepower FF91 is expected to retail, 300,000 units would be an unprecedented volume for such an expensive automobile, electric or otherwise. Faraday’s release also states that “the first preproduction car is expected to roll off the production line in 2020,” though it’s not clear when a salable vehicle is expected. As to other potential new vehicles, the announcement says only that “other future models could be created with additional agreements.”While it’s all rather confusing, it’s worth noting that the V9 is not an intended replacement for the FF91 — the release notes that development of that vehicle is still ongoing, with “the goal of final delivery later this year.” Complicating that timeline is the fact that it’s not clear how quickly Faraday can complete an operational assembly plant in Hanford, California, nor is it clear if the company has anywhere near the number of employees necessary to ramp up production. In fact, it reportedly recently had to sell its Los Angeles headquarters in order to improve its cash position. Faraday Future FF 91 gets a high-speed shakedown Tags Electric Cars SUVs Crossovers
Rohingya refugees who return to Myanmar will be safe as long as they stay in the model villages built for them, the countrys army chief has said, renewing fears they will be kept in settlements indefinitely.Some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims fled Buddhist-majority Myanmar to Bangladesh after the military launched a brutal crackdown on insurgents in August that the US and the UN have called ethnic cleansing.Myanmar and Bangladesh agreed to repatriate refugees to conflict-hit Rakhine state last year but Rohingya are loathe to come back to a country without guarantees of safety and basic rights such as freedom of movement.The countrys powerful army chief Min Aung Hlaing compounded those fears when speaking to a visiting delegation from the UN Security Council in the capital Naypyidaw on 30 April.There is no need to be worried about their security if they stay in the areas designated for them, he told the delegation, according to a read out of the meeting posted on Min Aung Hlaings official Facebook page on Saturday.He referred to members of the stateless minority as Bengalis, reflecting a widespread belief in Myanmar that the Rohingya are immigrants from Bangladesh despite a longstanding presence in Rakhine.The army chief also cast doubt on the allegations raised by refugees in Bangladesh, many of whom shared stories of extrajudicial killings, arson and rape.Bengalis will never say that they arrive there happily. They will get sympathy and rights only if they say that they face a lot of hardships and persecution, he reportedly said, adding that the issue was exaggerated.The UN has said conditions on the ground are not ripe for the refugees to return, despite Myanmars insistence that it is ready even as no large-scale repatriation has occurred.The government has built transit camps that can accommodate tens of thousands of people and a much smaller number of new houses to replace fire-blackened villages where Rohingya used to live.The minority community has been persecuted in Myanmar for decades and Rohingya have lived in what rights groups have called apartheid-like conditions, with severe restrictions on movement and access to health services.More than 120,000 Rohingya still reside in camps for internally displaced people in the Rakhine state capital Sittwe as a result of intercommunal violence in 2012 that killed hundreds.Dil Mohamed, a Rohingya leader sheltering on the border, told reporters late last month that refugees do not want to stay in any transit camps due to similar concerns that they will be more than temporary.We are waiting here only until we are allowed to go back to our home, he said.

Lebanon bans ‘The Post’ over Spielberg’s support for Israel by Philip Issa, The Associated Press Posted Jan 16, 2018 4:09 am PDT Last Updated Jan 16, 2018 at 10:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email People buy movie tickets inside the Cinema City complex in downtown Beirut, Lebanon, Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018. Lebanon’s censorship authorities have effectively banned Steven Spielberg’s newspaper drama, “The Post,” because the American director is on a regional blacklist for supporting Israel. The directive by the country’s General Security agency still needs to be signed by Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk to enter into effect, but that is considered a formality. (AP Photo/Bilal Hussein) BEIRUT – Lebanon’s censorship authorities have effectively banned Steven Spielberg’s newspaper drama, “The Post,” because the American director is on a regional blacklist for supporting Israel.The directive by the country’s General Security agency still needs to be signed by Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk to enter into effect, but that is considered a formality that is unlikely to stop the ban.The directive accompanied another ban on “Jungle,” a survival movie based on the memoirs of Israeli national Yossi Ghinsberg.Lebanon and other Arab nations have long maintained a cultural boycott against Israel. But the twin bans reflect the growing strength of a once-fringe movement to extend the boycott to people and companies seen as too friendly to Israel.General Security, which is also charged with running Lebanon’s only commercial airport, detained acclaimed Lebanese director Ziad Doueiri as he arrived last year to promote his latest film, “The Insult.” The drama is Lebanon’s entry to the Foreign-Language awards category at this year’s Oscars.Doueiri was questioned on charges of doing business with Israel. His previous film, “The Attack,” was banned in Lebanon and most Arab countries because it was filmed in Israel and featured several Israeli actors. All charges were dropped against him after news of his detention caused a scandal in the national media.Also last year, Lebanese authorities banned “Wonder Woman” hours before it was due to premiere, following a campaign against its lead actress, Gal Gadot, who served in the Israeli army.Supporters of the Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel in Lebanon could not be reached for comment Tuesday.Lebanon is officially at war with Israel and Lebanese law bans its citizens from visiting Israel or having business dealings with Israelis.But General Security and its censorship bureau have been inconsistent in their application of a cultural boycott. Several previous Spielberg films have played in Lebanon, including “The Adventures of Tintin,” ”The BFG,” and “Bridge of Spies.” And the ban against “The Post” and “Jungle” is unlikely to prevent Lebanese from watching them through streaming websites or on bootleg DVDs.Lebanese cinemas were already showing “Jungle” when they were advised to pull it, said Isaac Fahed, the Sales & Distribution Manager at Grand Cinemas, a Middle East cinema chain.Grand Cinemas had been marketing “The Post” for two months, before it became clear a ban was in the pipeline, said Fahed.Cinemas around Beirut have taken down posters promoting the film, which was set to premiere on Thursday.The film is effectively banned from Lebanon unless Machnouk reverses the General Security recommendation, said an official at the agency who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.Lebanon officially follows an Arab League blacklist against supporters of Israel and organizations and companies seen as promoting or doing business with the country. A leaked U.S. State Department memo from 2007 revealed that Spielberg was blacklisted by the League for donating $1 million to Israel for reconstruction during its 2006 war with Lebanon.Gino Raidy, a board member of the NGO March, which advocates freedom of expression in Lebanon, described the General Security’s censorship regime as “pointless” and “frustrating.”“The real loss from censorship is against Lebanese filmmakers, who with every passing month get more and more ‘red lines’ they cannot cross.”“The rise in censorship means that the censors know they’re losing the culture war, and that people are overwhelmingly against it, hence the frenzied, incoherent attempt to ban things they don’t understand, or don’t fall into their extremely narrow worldview,” he wrote in his blog.___Associated Press writer Sarah El Deeb contributed to this report.
