The NFL gave its teams stateoftheart GPS data Coaches had no

first_imgDirk Koetter: “I didn’t look at that stuff during the season.”As ESPN’s Kevin Seifert detailed, the data arrived after coaching staffs had generally wrapped the previous game up and moved on to the next one, it provided information only on each staff’s own players and not future opponents, and, most importantly, it didn’t provide information coaches couldn’t see with their own two eyes.“If you’re watching tape,” Koetter said, “[you can see] he’s about 6 yards off, he’s about 5 yards off. He’s pressing. He’s in cloud corner. You can see it.”Sean Payton testified that the RFID data is revolutionary in helping coaches prevent players from over-working themselves into injury during practice, the technology — or, at least, the NFL’s competition committee won’t let the technology — has paired itself with demand.Read the full story here.

Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Centre unveils US30m overhaul

first_imgNewerBalearic Island urges visitors to save water with new campaign OlderDFDS reveals Field to Ferry campaign to boost sustainability credentials Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Centre has unveiled its newly transformed 480 rooms and suites. The new offering includes a Western and Oriental Presidential Suite, a large executive lounge and a reimagined all-day dining outlet.The developments are the most substantial renovation in the property’s 26-year history. The US$30-million upgrade brings international leisure and business guests’ timeless elegance while providing Beijing with a rejuvenated complex that aims at reinterpreting European luxury in modern China. Since its opening in 1992 the hotel has been a preferred local destination for high-level diplomatic and embassy events, official government summits and state visits.ADVERTISEMENT“Kempinski has gone to great lengths in its renovation to blend the hotel’s dual heritage: European, as Kempinski Hotels have been hoteliers since 1897, and Chinese, as this was the first Kempinski hotel in China,” said managing director Brice Péan.“From the moment new-age business travellers walk into our property, they’ll know it’s a Kempinski, not just because of the service, but also from its commitment to elegant, well-rounded performances in everything we do.”The new portfolio of rooms and suites displays a decor that aims to convey the contemporary elegance of China and its cultural influence. European sandy, classical beige colours and hues adorn the walls and furniture, while art pieces, antique decorations, and colourful vases add breath-taking brushstrokes of Asian identity. Upgrades include bathroom glass walls with pixilated partitions (Magic Mirrors), heated towel racks and ground coffee machine stations in the executive floor rooms. Mirrors subtly outline windows and walls to accentuate a greater sense of space and tranquillity. The two presidential suites are decorated with authentic Chinese artwork and feature bathrooms with a view across the city. “Since it opened in 1992, Kempinski Hotel Beijing has dedicated itself to pioneering the performance excellence. “This relaunch signifies our strong commitment to impeccable personalised service,” continued Péan.“Along with the physical aspects of the renovation, the hotel now offers many software upgrades like the all-digital PressReader, where guests can access most newspapers from around the world. “Additionally, our new instant messaging service provides guests with the convenience of booking a table, ordering in-room dining, and requesting a delivery of amenities, through Facebook or WeChat’s messaging from the palm of their hand.”A haven for the business-minded traveller, all executive floor guests can now experience the new executive lounge.Perched among the hotel’s top floors and overseeing Beijing’s city skyline, the lounge offers everything from an open kitchen breakfast buffet with a live-cooking station to afternoon tea, happy hour, and dinner.last_img read more

Actress Glenn Close aims to reduce mental health s

first_imgActress Glenn Close aims to reduce mental health stigma ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Actress Glenn Close says she wants to live in a world where mental illness is talked about openly and accepted as a fact of life.The Emmy- and Tony-award-winning actress is in Ann Arbor, Michigan, this week for a gathering designed to bring awareness to efforts aimed at reducing the stigma associated with mental illness.“I’m excited about every aspect of this event. I think for those of us who are coming in to participate it’s very exciting, because I really look forward to talking to the students and learning about what they’re dealing with,” Close told The Associated Press during an interview Thursday at the University of Michigan. “There’s a lot of anxiety, depression, and stigma on campuses. I think kids are really, really open and ready to talk about it.”Close, NFL player Brandon Marshall, rapper/singer Logic and others are visiting the campus to show support for the Steven Schwartzberg Foundation, which is launching a campaign to empower students to address issues of mental health by encouraging conversations.The campaign is called “Who Can Relate?” It takes its name from a line in Logic’s hit song “1-800-273-8255,” named for the phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Lyrics from Logic’s song include: “I don’t wanna be alive/I just wanna die today,” and “I want you to be alive/You don’t got to die today.”Logic is scheduled to perform Friday night with profits going to organizations that share the same goal of de-stigmatizing mental illness, including Close’s Bring Change to Mind, which she co-founded after her sister was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and her nephew with schizoaffective disorder. Also benefiting from the show will be Project375, which was founded by Marshall and his wife, Michi Marshall, after the star wide receiver was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.Michi Marshall spent much of Thursday leading a mental health first-aid training session. Close stopped in to check out the training and also attended a lecture by artist and social activist Peter Tunney.The event was created by Harris Schwartzberg, who sits on the board of Bring Change to Mind and is an advisory board member of the University of Michigan’s Comprehensive Depression Center. The Steven Schwartzberg Foundation is named for Harris Schwartzberg’s brother, who died after a long struggle with bipolar disorder.“Glenn is a person and Brandon’s a person, and they struggle and their families struggle. And it should set a great example for people to come out and speak. And that’s really the most inspiring is that they’re willing to risk their public platform to spread the message it’s that important,” Schwartzberg said.

first_img This image released by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions shows Rose Byrne, left, and Chris O’Dowd in a scene from “Juliet, Naked.” (Alex Bailey/Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions via AP) by Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Posted Aug 15, 2018 11:57 am PDT Last Updated Aug 15, 2018 at 8:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Review: A low-key rom-com for Gen-X in ‘Juliet, Naked’center_img “Juliet, Naked ” is a charming and smart little film about early middle age, second chances, regrets and the intoxicating freedom of written correspondence that’s nearly impossible to explain without either spoiling something or being wilfully misleading.That’s actually one of its attributes: Everything only makes sense in context of everything else. “Juliet, Naked” has a plot that not only builds but that keeps getting more interesting and more rewarding, which is a good thing because to hear this film described is a tedious and confusing exercise. Woman starts romance with elusive indie rocker who is also boyfriend’s obsession? What?Because, ultimately, “Juliet, Naked,” adapted from a Nick Hornby novel and directed by Jesse Peretz, is not really about the romance or the rocker or the lousy boyfriend. It’s about a woman, trapped in stagnation learning what she wants. (No wonder this Sundance gem is hovering just over “fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes.)Rose Byrne plays said woman, Annie, who lives a perfectly ordinary life in an English coastal town. She works for the tiny local museum that her father once ran, she spends time with her sister and she tolerates her man-child boyfriend, an academic named Duncan (perfectly rendered by Chris O’Dowd). Duncan runs a fan blog devoted to Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke), a fictional cultish figure from the 90s indie rock scene who made a seminal album, “Juliet,” but vanished in between sets at the height of his fame and hasn’t been heard from for 25 years.Annie is dutifully supportive of this obsession, until one day a disc arrives in the mail, “Juliet, Naked,” a compilation of early demos that no one has heard. Duncan thinks it’s genius but Annie dissents, countering that unfinished works of art are just that — unfinished— and not meant to be heard, even posting a lengthy comment on the blog.This infuriates Duncan, who you could imagine breaking up with her because of a difference of opinion, but manages to get the attention of someone else — Tucker Crowe. He emails Annie to tell her she got it right, which kicks off a wonderful little trans-Atlantic correspondence between two people who couldn’t have conducted themselves more differently in their youth, but have found themselves in a similar spot nonetheless. I’m not even sure it’s accurately categorized as a romance — more so the heady excitement of actually connecting with another person over something honest, like regrets, both of whom have many.Annie regrets caring to the point of paralysis (“I keep thinking at some point there will be a reward for being so sensible,” she says). Tucker regrets not caring enough. Not only was he a prolific partier, he also managed to father a fair number of children, from a fair number of women, all of whom are equally and rightfully angry at their mostly absentee father.Hawke is brilliant as this affable screw-up, who is haunted by his past, resents the music that made him famous, and trying his best to redeem himself with his kids to varying degrees of success. He’s the rare actor who has fully embraced his own middle age and isn’t clinging on to some notion of youth or late-in-life action stardom and the result is that he’s telling deeply interesting stories about a certain stage of life without vanity or pretention.But while he is an essential component, it is really Byrne’s movie and she gives a winning performance as this woman who you believe has never even been asked what she wants out of life. A lesser script or actress or filmmaker might have made Annie a pathetic sad-sack, but Byrne knows that being stuck is not the same as being hopeless and her Annie is full of life and grace and empathy.The film buzzes along with introspective conversations, all-too human moments, a terrific soundtrack with everyone from Marianne Faithfull to The Pretenders, and a few delightfully awkward scenes that really drive home the whole “don’t meet your idols” conceit. And definitely don’t idol-splain to them if you do.“Juliet, Naked,” a Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “language.” Running time: 98 minutes. Three stars out of four.___MPAA Definition of R: Restricted.

Updated: April 28 2014 8:24 am A necessary part of explaining reforms is to shake people into realising how not doing these things will doom us CR Sasikumar Related News Let’s not wait for the next government We can work out the solutions “What will Modi do” At every meeting in particular of investors that is the question No one knows to paraphrase the great philosopher but many will tell you Even if Modi were not there and even if everything that we need to know about him were known the same question would be making the rounds For it does what we want done: it shifts responsibility on to someone other than us — in this case Modi and the civil servants that he may choose On the one hand we declare “The government structure is moribund It just cannot come up with out-of-the-box lateral solutions” On the other we ask “What will government do” In this we are like the politicians: in one breath they shout “The CBI is the Congress Bureau of Investigation”; in the next “We demand a CBI inquiry” Instead we should take reforms into our own hands Instead of waiting for Modi to come up with brilliant ideas we should work out solutions And we should work them out in detail Our “solution” must not just be “Do away with the subsidy on kerosene — everyone knows that subsidised kerosene is being used to adulterate diesel” but what may be done instead Shyam Saran gives a good example He points to the experiment that the IOC launched in a part of Alwar district Instead of giving kerosene at the subsidised price the IOC calculated the amount of kerosene subsidy to which the BPL family was entitled and transferred the amount to its bank account The family was now to buy kerosene in the market The result Kerosene off-take went down by 40 per cent Working out solutions in detail is all the more important in this round — the new government will have only six weeks in which to prepare its budget As the room for manoeuvre in regard to revenues and expenditures is very limited — what with the artificial ways in which the deficit figure was kept down — the only way for the budget to be a meaningful document a document that will re-establish hope is for it to furnish a roadmap for reforms As with all governments on the way in we can be reasonably sure that one this roadmap has not been worked out in the detail that is required; and two that the new government will need all the help it can get to lay it out in just six weeks It is indeed a comment on our times that till some years ago organisations like FICCI and CII used to spell out proposals in detail — alas they became event managers for whoever was in office So the first rule for getting reforms going again is: Work them out work them out work them out — yourselves Do not leave doing so to others especially not to governments The second rule is just as important There is some point in reaching the solutions to ministers and senior civil servants of course But they must at all times be a very small part of the audience Even if we assume that the key ministers and civil servants are well-informed reforms have to be carried out in the face of a political class and of a public that is not so Quite the contrary the political class and the general public have been taught to fear change they have been taught to think of reforms as a code-word for skewing affairs even more in favour of the rich Nor is the problem just one of perception The dread of the future can trigger real consequences on the street Those who will be dislocated by change are here they are organised they are vocal they have 60 years of leftist hectoring on their side And because of the perverse nature of the media these persons get a disproportionate amount of coverage On the other side those who will eventually benefit from the change are in the womb of the future They are not organised And in spite of the clearest contrast between the stagnation in the period before 1990 and the growth in the period after that the advocates of change remain on the defensive No prime minister howsoever strong can disregard this balance of forces Nor can he disregard the lack of knowledge and the consequential clamour of his party of the political class a whole — in Parliament and beyond it Hence the second rule is Explain explain explain A necessary part of doing so is to shake people into realising how not doing these things will doom us Consider an example A study points out that in the next 10 years 240 million are expected to join the labour force If we set aside vacancies that would arise because of retirements etc we will need to create at least 150 million new jobs That means we need to create at least 15 million new jobs every year In the last seven years we have been creating 15 to 2 million jobs per year — that is about a tenth of that number At this rate in the 10 years during which 240 million would enter the labour force we would have created 15 to 20 million jobs Can there be a surer recipe for a social and violent explosion Just as to ward off danger we must act “with the urgency of a man whose hair is on fire” we must also act with the same urgency to avail of the opportunities that have arisen and will just as swiftly rush away Consider the disquiet that has erupted among several firms that have been operating in China Wages have risen rapidly in China in the last few years Intellectual property continues to be open to pillage And since 2008 there is the overt aggressiveness of China and the Chinese In just the last month analysts reported anxieties of German firms and others The Japanese firms — which have been among the largest contributors to China’s growth — are today facing intimidation of various kinds: a Chinese court has just ordered a Japanese ship to be impounded in regard to compensation claims dating from World War II Such factors have caused many a firm to shift operations at the least to locate additional facilities elsewhere India would be a natural potential base that they would think about — it is the only country in the region that can provide the kind of scale that China provides for their operations But our archaic laws our unpredictable policies the meteors that descend out of our tax and enforcement offices corruption our interminable processes and the rest together push those firms to relocate in Bangladesh Thailand Vietnam the Philippines rather than India Similarly to get things going again we must bare to the people the truth about the “pro-people” laws and the populist schemes that have been projected as great achievements Should the handouts through the public distribution system be taken at face-value when survey after survey shows that anywhere between 30 to 90 per cent of the commodities distributed are siphoned off along the way Do our anti-employment labour laws our provisions to prevent bankruptcy the law by which any seven workers in an establishment can form a trade union actually protect the millions who labour or do they just perpetuate a labour aristocracy Does the Apprenticeship Act protect the apprentices or as a fine report of Manish Sabharwal and his colleagues to the Planning Commission shows is it one of the main reasons on account of which India has only 3 lakh apprentices while the so much smaller Germany has 10 million to say nothing of China which has 40 million Similarly competitive populism among political parties focuses on each “pro-farmer” “pro-worker” measure separately It obscures the consequences of one for the other it obscures the vicious cycles that they trigger together We groan about inflation We eventually say it is “food inflation” But if we keep throwing money into the countryside — through debt write-offs through NREGA and the rest without raising agricultural productivity; if we go on raising minimum support prices as every political party shouts the government must do how will inflation specifically food inflation not be the consequence How will the requisite acreage be set aside for the items for which demand is rising fastest — fruits and vegetables — when it is in growing cereals that the farmer has an assured minimum price In a country in which we import three-quarters of the oil we use how will we be able to control our current account deficit (CAD) when we continue to subsidise petroleum products “Explaining” must include setting out the whole truth Have our analysts have our industry organisations spoken up about the fraudulent way in which our fiscal deficit has been shown to have been lowered Have you heard them nail how that dressing up of figures has narrowed the options for the coming year Surely industry knows how the enhanced duty on gold — without any tightening of customs administration — led to a spurt in the smuggling of gold and that this was one of the main items that enabled us to declare that the recorded CAD had been controlled The fact is that very difficult decisions are now inescapable They are bound to hurt many in the immediate future Unless the reasons for them have been drilled into the people again and again how will such decisions be taken The third rule is to shift from merely listing out our suggestions to showing how they are to be put into effect We routinely propose the most radical changes And yet we know that Parliament will remain paralysed Even if disruptions abate for the coming year or two the non-NDA parties will continue to have a majority in Rajya Sabha How then are these changes to be brought about Here are two examples One way is to break up the problem into smaller pieces Enable progressive states to move ahead on their own So many of the laws that are impeding growth fall in the Concurrent List Article 254 of the Constitution deals with such subjects In public discourse we tend to focus on the first clause of this article — namely that if there are both a Central and a state law on the subject and their provisions are opposed to each other the provisions of the Central law shall prevail But Clause 2 of this article provides that the state provision shall prevail in the concerned state provided the president — that is the Central government — gives the requisite permission Why not declare that in regard to education labour industrial disputes agricultural marketing etc state laws that enable it to compete with countries that we have to face — say Southeast Asian countries — shall automatically have the Centre’s approval A few progressive states will adopt the changes The advantages that will accrue to them will goad and encourage others to follow suite A similar device would be to make allocations to states contingent on their adopting improved practices and policies For decades and decades ever since the Gadgil-Mukherjee formula was adopted the poorer a government ensured its state remained the more it got from the Centre Why not turn this around We have an acute shortage of teachers we do not have requisite leadership programmes for our seven lakh headmasters Make allocations to a state contingent on its multiplying and upgrading teacher-training facilities on its roping in the best institutions and firms in the state to institute leadership programmes Our literacy rates are low The quality of teachers varies Make allocations contingent on their deploying technology to overcome these: the “total immersion” method for enabling persons to read used by FC Kohli to such dramatic effect in Andhra Pradesh; linking colleges by information and communications technology (ICT) so that the best teacher on the topic in the state delivers the lecture and it is seen and heard by students across the state This is not a “one size fits all” device Naturally the states must have great flexibility to tweak the scheme to what suits them best Naturally the Centre must continually improve the scheme as it learns from successes in the states The fourth rule is not about doing this or doing that; it is about not doing it is a rule of self-denial When at last a reform is indeed instituted when at last an aperture is opened do not misuse it As it is the enemies of change are ever-ready to pounce at every step to denounce it to charge that it has been done to benefit “X” or “Y” If by the influence they command “X” or “Y” are in fact able to twist the step to their advantage or to keep their rivals down they strike a blow not just at that measure but at reforms in general For any of this to come about industry leaders as much as academics as much as us journalists have to stop being onlookers — waiting for manna to fall from Delhi Leaders of industry in particular have to shed the mentality of the licence-quota period — the mentality that the way ahead is for each to cut a deal for himself by suborning a minister or civil servant rather than striving to improve the system They have to stop being clients They have to stop being event managers

EVEN as the Indian film industry is striving to go beyond the tried-and-tested formula according to the writer-director of Lipstick Under My Burkha Alankrita Shrivastava there are some factors which would help it in being a truly dynamic one “Studios have to be more supportive of unconventional content The audience needs to be more accepting Artists have to stop self-censoring and the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has to stop snipping” says Shrivastava whose film about the lives and desires of four women in a small Indian town has been denied a certificate by the CBFC She was speaking at the panel discussion “Brave Voices: Screenwriters who are Changing the Game” on the third day of FICCI Frames Asia’s largest business conclave for media and entertainment (M&E) The industry today is undergoing an evolution according to screenwriter Anjum Rajabali but screenwriters still feel that their creative expression is being stifled “In the ’80s and ’90s people were happy to stick to formulaic stories Today a number of mainstream producers are pushing boundaries as seen in films such as Piku Aligarh Dear Zindagi Nil Battey Sannata and Kapoor & Sons” said the writer of Raajneeti while who was moderating the panel “It’s true that producers and studios have become more open to different kinds of stories” he added Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh the writer of Neerja echoed that “At the same time however I still have to be wary of the political scenario the film will appear in I have to ensure that it is placed smartly and will be accepted by the audience After all I want people to watch the film” she said Speaking about India’s tradition of censorship Rajabali said “This is a country with a very rich tradition of storytelling You have complex plots and flawed characters which people can relate to But when this translates to cinema they seem to disturb our culture and offend people” Shrivastava has struggled with this issue “I believed that I was making a story about ordinary women in Lipstick Under My Burkha but the CBFC refused to certify the film because it was “lady-oriented” Certification is about silencing people’s voices particularly those of women Facing this I can’t lose courage and hope If we don’t take a stand it will lead to the death of creativity” The importance of taking a stand believes Atika Chohan who wrote Margarita With A Straw lies in why they chose to be writers in the first place “We chose this profession because we wanted to say something” said Chohan Margarita With A Straw a film about a rebellious young woman with cerebral palsy who falls in love faced cuts from the CBFC “We needed to allow an emotion to come out that would have otherwise exploded There’s a lot of wisdom in sticking to our true voice when others — whether it be producers the CBFC or the audience — are trying to gag it It sends a wrong signal to apologise and back down as some people in the film industry have done” According to Rucha
