Negotiations between striking Hollywood writers and studios collapsed Friday, producers said, after both sides spent the day trading accusations and barbs. The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers announced that the round of talks that started Tuesday had broken down, stalling efforts to end the five-week strike that has sidelined many prime-time and late-night TV shows. The Writers Guild of America said it had no immediate comment. “We’re puzzled and disheartened by an ongoing WGA negotiating strategy that seems designed to delay or derail talks rather than facilitate an end to this strike,” the producers alliance said in a statement.

That contrasts with the $20,000-plus that writers now earn for a single network rerun of a TV episode. In its statement, the alliance said it has demonstrated its intent that writers “participate in producers’ revenues, including in theatrical and television streaming, as well as other areas of new media.” “However, under no circumstances will we knowingly participate in the destruction of this business,” the producers said. Earlier Friday, the guild released a membership letter in which it accused the alliance of dragging its heels in putting new proposals on the table and cited possible schemes to sink the talks.last_img read more

Local Muslims, Pakistanis move fast to aid victims

The estimated death toll was between 20,000 and 30,000 in Pakistan on Sunday, with more than 600 reported dead in India and four killed in Afghanistan. “It doesn’t matter (if) it’s your country or their country,” said Sanjit Dhillon, 29, a student living in Van Nuys who is originally from India. “It’s bad. We were shocked that so many people died in Pakistan.” Ali said that the effort to raise money for the victims may be aided by the disaster’s coming during Ramadan, when Muslims are commanded to give more to charity. Lasting about four weeks, the holiday calls for worshippers to fast from dawn to dusk and gather to pray nightly at mosques. Mahmood Khan, owner of the Northridge grocery store International Food Exchange, said he was lucky that his family in Pakistan was safe. Shocked by the devastation of a massive earthquake along the Pakistan-India border, Pakistani-Americans and other Southern California Muslims fasting for Ramadan moved quickly Sunday to raise more than $350,000 for the stricken region. In the Burbank offices of Islamic Relief USA, workers gave up their weekend to come into the office and take donations. By Sunday afternoon the group had collected more than $350,000 over the Internet and from mosques. “We are very sad for the people,” said Mohamed Abul-Magd, general manager of the charity. “We pray for the people who are dead and the victims there, but at the same time we work hard to help them as much as we can.” The magnitude 7.6 earthquake struck early Saturday. Earthquakes are less common in Pakistan than in India and Afghanistan. “It’s just horrible. We never had this kind of thing before,” he said. Islamic Relief USA aims to raise $4 million to help the earthquake victims.

Scientists Divine Deep Time in Dead Fish

first_imgScientific experiments can certainly take on a wide variety of methods, from recreating the atmosphere of Titan to testing a drug on a genetic disease.  But if educators want to encourage students to become scientists, they had best keep silent about “some very unpleasant experiments” at the University of Leicester reported by the BBC News.  The team decided to watch fish heads rot.  What they were looking for in this “very smelly” study raises questions about what kind of knowledge can be deduced from experiments.    The researchers had an ostensibly noble purpose.  They were interested in knowing what happens to dying fish before they become fossilized, in order to interpret more accurately what is found in the fossil record.  Do skeletons and soft tissues undergo dramatic transformations as they rot?  If so, it could skew the interpretation of ancient marine fossils.  Inquiring minds what to know.    The experiments had a grander evolutionary backdrop.  Dr. Mark Purnell said, “We need to understand how they decayed if we’re going to put them in the right place in the tree of life.”  Researcher Rob Sansom realized, according to Science Daily, that “spending hundreds of hours studying the stinking carcasses of rotting fish is not something that appeals to everyone.”Update  Jan 31:  What this study implies for evolution will not be good news for evolutionary paleontologists.  Nature News said the fact that parts can rot away can lead to misinterpretations.  “In a series of experiments published online today in Nature, Purnell and his colleagues Robert Sansom and Sarah Gabbott found that the features that are most important in deciding where to place an animal on the tree of life are lost first,” Daniel Cressey’s synopsis explained.  The results can be counterintuitive:  “In practical terms, this means that as something decays it seems to retreat through its own phylogeny and descend the tree.”  Philippe Janvier at the Museum of Natural History in Paris agreed: “Some fossils have clearly been over-interpreted.”  Has this happened?  Yes, according to Purnell; “decay bias” could be widespread.  Interpreting the origin of chordates is particularly fraught with decay bias.  Philipp Donoghue at the University of Bristol cautioned, “It’s certainly going to annoy a lot of palaeontologists who have rather blithely interpreted fossils,” he said.  “A bunch of fossils we thought were primitive vertebrates actually now fall into a dustbin and tell us nothing about the evolution of vertebrate characters.”Experimenting on taphonomy (studying the processes under which remains become fossilized) is a worthwhile activity, but the interpretations and assumptions in this article stink worse than the fish heads.  Would their experiments help them understand created fish that perished in a great flood?  They could not possibly understand all the conditions that might have differed from dying fish in a lab to those who perished in the fossil record.  Maybe they need to do some further experiments on what happens to fish who fossilize while giving birth (see National Geographic) or that are preserved in rock instantly while having lunch (see FossilMuseum.net).    These guys cannot possibly interpret their lab experiments correctly.  They had the moyboy disease* infecting their brains from the get-go.  “Unlike forensics, however,” the team lead said, ”we are dealing with life from millions of years ago.”  At least he got one thing right.  It’s sure unlike forensics – trying to follow the evidence where it leads, free of bias.  It is one of the clearest examples of divination we have seen yet (see commentaries from 07/26/2008, 01/25/2008).  If Nebuchadnezzar had been told you had to smell rotting fish heads to see the tree of life, some other heads would have rotted.*Moyboy: millions of years, billions of years.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Chinese boost for South African auto manufacturing

first_img2 December 2015As fellow members of the BRICS association of emerging economies along with Brazil, Russia and India, the relationship between China and South Africa (and indeed, the rest of Africa) is an important one.The Forum on China-Africa Co-operation (FOCAC) is an institutional vehicle for political, economic and cultural interaction between China and Africa; the summit is expected to mark a qualitative shift in those relations.Held on 4 and 5 December with the theme “Africa-China progressive together: win-win co-operation for common development”, the summit will culminate in a meeting between South African President Jacob Zuma and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping.Final countdown to the #FOCAC Summit. @UbuntuRadioZA @SAgovnews @ClaysonMonyela @NelsonKgwete @hectormbatha pic.twitter.com/gF6xTeZGiJ— DIRCO South Africa (@DIRCO_ZA) December 1, 2015According to Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi, trade between Africa and China has reached $220-billion(R3.2-trillion), 22 times higher than it was in 2000 when FOCAC was launched. He was speaking at the Lanting Forum in Johannesburg at the end of November 2015.There are over 3 000 Chinese enterprises operating in Africa, according to the minister. And with more than 3.6 million visits made between China and Africa, tourism is one of the growing industries that offer mutual benefits.Even with the slowdown in the Chinese economy, the potential and benefits for South Africa and the rest of the African continent are still very much apparent. Wang said that China planned to still import over $10-trillion in goods, invest more than $500-billion in overseas ventures, including in Africa, and encourage more than 500 million Chinese tourists to travel abroad over the next five years.In South Africa, China’s presence is slowly growing and beginning to be felt in various industries, including technology, mining and the automotive industry. Jobs are being created, products and commodities are being traded and new markets are being opened between South Africa and China. The Hebei Iron and Steel Group’s steel mill in Phalaborwa, opened in 2014, is just one of the many opportunities being created to herald the new shift. Another venture is the Beijing Automotive Works (BAW) factory in Springs.A media tour of the facility was arranged by the Industrial Development Corporation and Brand South Africa to give South African and Chinese media a closer look at how Chinese business style works in the South African context.Beijing Automotive WorksThe car maker is one of the many Chinese companies operating in South Africa. BAW South Africa is owned and operated by the Beijing Automotive Industry Company, China’s fifth-largest automotive manufacturer; it has partnered with the Industrial Development Corporation and China Africa Motors in the distribution of BAW minibus taxis across Africa. The vehicles are assembled at the company’s factory outside Springs, in Gauteng.Opened in 2012, the factory is the base of operations for BAW in the assembly and the promotion, sales and after-sales service of its vehicles. According to BAW chief executive James Chung, daily production at the factory is 25 to 30 vehicles. The company employs 160 people, the majority of whom work on the factory’s assembly line. Here the company’s flagship vehicle, the Sasuka minibus, is assembled from semi-knockdown kits imported from China.Baw Automotive – Manufacturing Taxis @UbuntuRadioZA @Brand_SA @the_dti @SAgovnews #FOCAC pic.twitter.com/7YiNP1Czt1— DIRCO South Africa (@DIRCO_ZA) November 27, 2015Chung is happy with the relationship built between the company and its growing South African customer base, and hopes BAW South Africa can extend its product range over the next couple of years with light commercial vehicles, sport utility vehicles and passenger cars.While he has admiration for the processes involved in operating the business in South Africa, he does have concerns about the level of financial freedom, which is often dogged by red tape and over regulation. He thinks this is an obstacle many find daunting when trying to start a business in the country. Yet he hopes he can contribute to finding a way to alleviate the regulations and paperwork involved through discussions with the relevant parties in the government and the motoring industry.BAW in Springs-China Manufactured vehicles right here in SA –#MeetSouthAfrica journey to #FOCAC next week pic.twitter.com/yDyGsG0Bva— Hashtag South Africa (@hashtag_sa) November 27, 2015The BAW SasukaSimilar in shape and style to the ubiquitous Toyota Ses’fikile- the main player in the South African minibus taxi market – BAW offers a little extra included in the sale of the Sasuka to give it the edge in the competitive local market.Mr James Chung explaining how the call centre operates at Baw Automotive #FOCAC @Brand_SA @SAgovnews @the_dti pic.twitter.com/ntRKP9OWct— DIRCO South Africa (@DIRCO_ZA) November 27, 2015In addition to air conditioning as standard in the Sasuka, the minibus also comes with satellite tracking operated by the company itself. The company runs a real-time tracking service for all vehicles sold, which monitors the performance and condition of the vehicle.The company will even alert owners when the Sasuka is due for its next service.The service plan, valid for two years or 200 000 kilometres, is included in the price of the vehicle. Servicing is free and taken care of in-house by BAW. It covers everything from the tyres, brakes, oil and parts replacement to the interiors and on-board technology. In addition, the Sasuka comes with on-board DVD system and GPS navigation as standard. The minibus has a rear-wheel drive 2.7 engine with a maximum speed of 156km/h and fuel consumption of 13.7 litres per 100 kilometres.#FOCAC media tour second leg is at the Beijing Automotive Works (BAW) in Springs @DIRCO_ZA @Brand_SA pic.twitter.com/G9rn8nEnxb— the dti (@the_dti) November 27, 2015SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Why is Darjeeling on the boil again?

first_imgWhat happened?June 8 was a day of considerable significance for Darjeeling as a Cabinet meeting of the West Bengal government was being held there after 44 years. Over 30 members from the Council of Ministers, including Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, were present at the meeting at Raj Bhavan. However, just about 200 metres away, at Bhanu Bhawan, hundreds of supporters of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) — the most important hill party — launched a sudden attack on the police contingent near the meeting venue. Over a dozen police vehicles were set on fire and more than 50 policemen were injured in relentless stone-pelting by the agitators.Why were they angry?The precipitating factor was the government’s decision on May 18 to make Bengali compulsory in all schools. The GJM took exception to this announcement, and took to the streets. It called a strike in all educational institutes in the hills on June 1 and 2. As both the government and the GJM were locked in a war of words, each threatening the other with dire consequences, tension in the hills started rising. The discontent finally found an outlet on June 8, with Darjeeling erupting in violence so intense that it brought back memories of the violent agitation for Gorkhaland spearheaded by Subhas Ghising’s Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF) in the mid-1980s.What is the situation now?With the outbreak of violence, the hills again plunged into uncertainty. After a 12-hour shutdown on June 9, the GJM intensified the agitation by declaring an indefinite bandh of government offices and those of the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration, set up in 2011, from June 12. However, things came to a head on June 15, when the police raided the residence of GJM president Bimal Gurung in his stronghold Patlaybas, and recovered weapons and cash, prompting the GJM to call for an indefinite total bandh in the hills.What is the key demand?The root of the violence can be traced to the decades-old demand for Gorkhaland to be carved out of Darjeeling, Kurseong and Kalimpong (Kalimpong is now a separate district). In 2008, after the GJM wrested power in the hills from the GNLF, it relaunched the agitation for Gorkhaland, a movement which saw many years of bloody political battles and destroyed the economy of the region. Finally, in 2011, after the Trinamool Congress came to power in the State, the GJM, the State government and the Centre signed a tripartite agreement for the establishment of the GTA, a regional autonomous body aimed at giving significant administrative control over the region to the elected party in the hills. The recent developments indicate the shattering of an uneasy truce between the GJM and the Trinamool government, especially after the party made inroads in the hills and won Mirik, one of the four municipalities that went to the polls recently. The term of the GTA is also coming to an end, and unease was palpable among the GJM leadership over losing political dominance. The fresh agitation for Gorkhaland has strengthened the GJM. Several smaller parties, including the arch-rival GNLF, have joined hands with GJM.What lies ahead?The Centre has called tripartite talks on June 19. While the Trinamool is not keen on attending the meeting, the GJM has said it will attend the talks only if a separate State is discussed. The Trinamool, too, is not showing any sign of engaging in discussions with the GJM. Several companies of the Army and Central forces have been deployed, besides a huge contingent of the police. The GJM has called a long-drawn struggle, and the tourism sector — it is peak season now — has been hit hard. The tea industry is going to suffer and the common man too, as shops, commercial institutions and banks remain closed.last_img read more

Response to ‘gross out’ pictures linked to people’s politics

first_imgThe reaction your brain has to the bloody guts and gore of a haunted house this Halloween might be linked to how you vote next week. Scientists showed a series of emotionally evocative images—either threatening, pleasant, disgusting, or neutral—to 83 volunteers as the participants lay inside MRI machines recording their brain activity. The researchers found that the areas of the brain that lit up in response to the grossest pictures—like mutilated bodies and burn victims—depended on whether the participant was more liberal or more conservative, based on a survey of political beliefs. The differences were seen in areas of the brain associated not only with disgust, but also with memory retrieval, attention, pain, and innate “gut responses.” Even the brain scan of a person looking at a single disgusting image was enough to predict their political tendencies, but more work will be needed to know exactly what these brain scan differences mean. It’s not clear that either liberals or conservatives are more squeamish than the other; the two groups had similar scores when asked to rate how grossed out they were by the pictures, or how sensitive they generally are to disgusting images, the team reports online today in Current Biology. But the results do lend credence to the idea that which way someone sways on Election Day is at least somewhat mediated by biological factors, the researchers say.last_img read more
