Bengaluru: The Karnataka Congress suspended its senior legislator from Bengaluru R. Roshan Baig for anti-party activities, a party official said late Tuesday. “Baig has been suspended with immediate effect for his anti-party activities,” said state Congress General Secretary V.Y. Ghorpade in a statement here. The All India Congress Committee (AICC) has approved Baig’s suspension on the recommendation of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) to take action against him on the basis of an enquiry into his activities.

Baig has been in the news of late for wrong reasons, including his alleged involvement in the multi-crore Ponzi scheme, operated by IMA Jewels owner Mohammed Mansoor Khan, who fled the country on June 8. In a purported video clip posted in the social media, Khan accused Baig of blackmailing him for asking to return about Rs 400 crore he claimed to have given the latter for contesting in the recent Lok Sabha elections from Bangalore Central seat though he did not get the ticket.

Venugopal and Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah for the rout the party faced in the parliamentary elections. Venugopal is also in-charge of the party’s state unit affairs. Commenting on the May 19 exit polls on May 20, that projected Congress performing poorly in the general elections, Baig lashed out at Venugopal, Siddaramaiah and party’s state unit president Dinesh Gundu Rao. “Venugopal is a buffoon. What he knows about the party in our state as he is from Kerala? Due to Siddaramaiah’s arrogance, the party lost in the May 2018 Assembly elections and Rao’s immaturity is responsible for the dismal state of affairs currently,” Baig told reporters at his residence here. Baig has been sulking against the party leadership since a year for being denied a cabinet post despite being the Muslim face of the party after the death of veteran party leader Jaffer Shariff in November last year.
Hong Kong: Police fired water cannon and tear gas at Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters massed outside the city’s parliament on Saturday, as demonstrators defied a ban on rallying, the arrests of leading activists and rising threats from China, to take to the streets for a 13th straight weekend. Police had banned the demonstration on security grounds, then organisers had cancelled it, after last weekend saw some of the most violent clashes in months of political turmoil. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USBut large crowds, many in their signature black T-shirts and under a colourful canopy of umbrellas, snaked through Hong Kong island anyway, blocking roads in the financial heart and chanting “reclaim Hong Kong, revolution of our times.” Tensions rose as the afternoon wore on, with hardcore protesters throwing rocks, setting fires — and shining laser pens — at a rank of police behind a barricade at the city parliament known as the Legislative Council (LegCo). Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsPolice fired a water cannon and rounds of tears gas to disperse the group, as protesters dug up the pavement to use as projectiles and crouched under umbrellas. As dusk drew in, protesters smashed through the barrier outside the parliament building. The LegCo was stormed on July 1 — the 22nd anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong from British to Chinese rule. Earlier protesters marched by the official residence of Hong Kong’s embattled Beijing-backed leader Carrie Lam, who is the focal point of anger after trying to pass a bill which would have allowed extradition to China. “I’m prepared for the consequences of coming out,” said one protestor, who gave his name as Jay, adding “Hong Kongers have the right to assembly.” Opposition to the extradition bill — now suspended but not permanently withdrawn — has brought much of Hong Kong to the streets. The protests have expanded into a wider pro-democracy call and a rejection of attempts by Beijing to curtail the freedoms of the semi-autonomous territory. Another big group massed in the busy shopping district of Causeway Bay, occupying the road and chanting anti-government slogans. “I’m not afraid to come out here today,” said another 25-year-old protester who gave his surname as Ng. A helicopter buzzed above marchers as police appealed to the public to “leave immediately” while water-cannon trucks were driven onto the streets. But protesters were in defiant mood. “It’s ‘now or never’ for Hong Kong, ” said a 33-year-old accountant who gave her surname as Wong. “I’m a mother-of-two. They didn’t come today but their grandmother did. We’re defending the right of assembly for the next generation in Hong Kong.” Saturday marks the fifth anniversary of Beijing’s rejection of a call for universal suffrage for Hong Kong, which sparked the 79-day “Umbrella Movement” in 2014. Many protesters are determined not to let the new movement fizzle out as the Umbrella protests did. At least five high-profile activists and three lawmakers were arrested on Friday in a sweep aimed at defanging Saturday’s rally. Rights groups say the tactics are cribbed directly from Beijing’s protest playbook. Two of the Umbrella Movement’s leaders, Joshua Wong and Agnes Chow were among those arrested, charged and bailed for “inciting others to take part in unauthorised assembly”. The European Union’s diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini said the developments were “extremely worrying”, while US President Donald Trump said his economic pressure on China was forcing Beijing to take a more moderate line in Hong Kong. In an attempt to sidestep Saturday’s protest ban, crowds earlier carried Christian crosses and sang “Hallelujah” in religious gatherings — which do not require the same stringent permission from authorities. The demonstrators, who have earned a reputation for their creativity and unpredictability, also called for “mass shopping trips” in the city centre. On Saturday morning, LIHKG, the Reddit-like forum used by protesters to communicate, reported via Twitter that its app had suffered the “largest attack it has ever seen”. Police on Friday confirmed three lawmakers — and a district councillor — had been arrested over their alleged actions in previous protests, but denied the sweep was timed specifically to weaken the weekend’s protests. More than 900 people have been arrested since June in connection to protests. Hong Kong’s crisis-hit government has refused to back down over the protests, which have seen millions march peacefully through the streets but also hardcore groups of radical protesters hurl bricks and petrol bombs at police armed with tear gas and rubber bullets. The violence has damaged Hong Kong’s reputation for stability and prosperity. China has responded with a campaign of intimidation. State media on Friday reported that fresh military anti-riot drills were held across the border in Shenzhen.
VANCOUVER — Moosehead Breweries Ltd. is the latest beverage company to form a joint venture to enter the cannabis-infused beverage market in Canada once it is legalized.An affiliate of the independent brewer, OCC Holdings Inc., is partnering with Sproutly Canada Inc. to develop, produce and market non-alcoholic beverages using Sproutly’s naturally-produced water soluble cannabinoids.The companies say its beverages would be able to deliver the effects of cannabis in as early as five minutes and could last up to 90 minutes, providing an experience similar to smoking the drug.Moosehead is Canada’s oldest and largest independent brewery with 152 years of experience and infrastructure that the companies say will allow the joint venture to more quickly get its cannabis-infused beverages to market.The companies add that Sproutly’s cultivation facility and processing licence will advance formulation work that’s already been completed to date.Health Canada has said the final rules about edibles must be brought into force no later than Oct. 17, a year after recreational cannabis use was legalized.“After careful analysis of the cannabis industry and the cannabis beverage opportunity in Canada, we believe that Moosehead and Sproutly together are well positioned to become a significant player in the category,” stated Matthew Oland, a Moosehead senior executive, who will head the 50-50 joint venture as chief executive officer.The Canadian Press

LOUIS – Enterprise Holdings, the largest U.S. rental car company, plans to hire 11,000 new full-time workers by the middle of next year, the company told The Associated Press on Wednesday.The hiring is expected to be complete by July 31, and could boost the company’s workforce to more than 80,000, depending on attrition, company executive Marie Artim said. The suburban St. Louis-based company’s revenues have more than doubled over the past 10 years, from $6.9 billion in 2003 to $16 billion.The company plans to hire nearly 8,500 for management trainee positions, including many recent college graduates. Others will be hired for positions in information technology, administration and support roles at the company headquarters in suburban St. Louis, and in branch stores.In addition to the full-time jobs, Enterprise plans to hire 1,500 interns. Typically, about half of its interns eventually become full-time employees, company officials said.Enterprise Holdings operates Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental. It is one of the nation’s largest private companies. Its overall fleet includes 1.3 million vehicles at 8,200 rental stores.Artim, vice-president of talent acquisition for Enterprise, said the new hires are needed because nearly 11,000 people were promoted or changed positions within the company over the past year. She said the company typically promotes almost strictly from within its own ranks, noting that CEO Pamela M. Nicholson began in an entry level position at Enterprise more than three decades ago.“It’s just an exciting time,” Artim said. “Being a family-owned, privately-held company has allowed us to think long-term and strategic.”Enterprise was founded in 1957 by Jack Taylor as Executive Leasing with a fleet of seven cars. He changed the name to Enterprise in 1969 to honour the World War II aircraft carrier he served on, the USS Enterprise.The company grew quickly by developing a niche for neighbourhood locations rather than airports, making it popular among those whose cars or trucks were in the shop for repair. Enterprise acquired Alamo and National in 2007.Nicholson became the first person outside the Taylor family to lead the company in June. Jack Taylor and his son, Andrew, were the only previous CEOs before Nicholson was promoted from president and chief operating officer. Andrew Taylor remains as executive chairman.

China is a hotbed for piracy, just ask Microsoft about sales of bootleg copies of Windows. So when a legitimate service that will be the equivalent of Netflix for the billion-strong population is in development, content owners sit up and take notice.Later this year, the China Movie Channel is set to launch such a service and offer up a range of content for a fee. It is guaranteed a high chance of success because it is being backed by the Chinese government, meaning no one is really going to complain about it too much.China Movie Channel already has established relationships with all the major Hollywood studios, but so far only Paramount Pictures has signed up for this new streaming service. Others are expected to follow, with MGM thought to be coming on board next.The service will carry a very low subscription charge and there’s going to be a focus on mobile streaming. At the same time, the involvement of the government will ensure subscribers don’t get to watch anything deemed unsuitable while turning a healthy profit from the expected millions of subscribers.China Movie Channel already has a successful website offering over 6,000 movies, called M1905.com. It has 3 million registered users, all of whom will be transitioned over to the new service when it launches.With the Chinese government implementing heavy restrictions on what can and can’t be released in the country, combined with high levels of piracy, it’s unlikely Hollywood will see this new service as anything other than a positive move. Studios will be guaranteed license payments in return for their content being offered in a streaming-only format. It may even see fewer movies released on disc if it proves more profitable to stream.Read more at Reuters
Antibiotiques : en produire de nouveaux grâce aux cafards ?Monde – Le système immunitaire des cafards intéresse de plus en plus les scientifiques. Il pourrait en effet se révéler une source d’inspiration intéressante dans l’élaboration de nouveaux antibiotiques. Cafards et criquets sont connus pour élire domicile dans des lieux à l’hygiène plus que douteuse. Afin de ne pas contracter d’infections, se soldant souvent par la mort, ils ont tous deux développé un système immunitaire très performant. C’est donc dans le cerveau de ces si peu sympathiques insectes que des chercheurs anglais de l’université de Nottingham sont allés chercher neuf molécules bactéricides.À lire aussiDes chercheurs créent de la soie d’araignée antibiotique capable de soigner les blessuresElles détruisent 90% des bactéries chez le cafard mais sont inoffensives pour l’homme. Elles pourraient donc être à l’origine de nouvelles générations d’antibiotiques, d’autant qu’elles semblent efficaces sur des bactéries jusque là considérées comme résistantes.Néanmoins, le chemin à parcourir par les scientifiques est encore long. Avant la commercialisation d’un éventuel antibiotique basé sur les molécules de cafard, au moins dix années s’écouleront. Le 8 septembre 2010 à 10:47 • Emmanuel Perrin

Stay on target For decades, American kids have been picking up the adventures of teenage redhead Archie Andrews, his vixenish love interests Veronica Lodge and Betty Cooper, gluttonous best friend Jughead Jones, and arch-rival Reggie Mantle, in digest-sized comic books at supermarket checkout lines. Archie has almost always been a corny relic of a long-gone time — so how did a company born in the 1940s miraculously reinvent itself for the 21st century? Come with us as we get ready for Netflix’s Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina with a trip down memory lane.Teen DreamsFirst, a little backstory. In 1939, publisher John Goldwater founded MLJ Comics, which put out a slate of mostly superhero books. A few years later, Goldwater and artist Bob Montana tried something new — the adventures of an everyday American teen named Archie Andrews and his friends in the fictional city of Riverdale (based on their own small-town upbringings). As an attempt to capitalize on the successful “Andy Hardy” movies of actor Mickey Rooney, Archie Comics mixed humor and romance into a formula that would remain nearly unchanged for 80 years.If you’ve read one Archie, you’ve read them all and know the drill, but here’s the gist: Archie is torn between two women — the devoted, blonde Betty and the spoiled, raven-tressed Veronica (with an occasional third thrown in for good measure). Jughead couldn’t care less and Reggie is scheming for the affections of whichever girl Archie is more interested in at the moment. Throw in the supporting cast that includes super-genius Dilton Doiley, lunkheaded Moose, and a handful of adults and you have a clearly realized fictional world that plays host to wholesome hijinks.Sex AppealSo here’s the thing: Archie is never explicitly sexy. The furthest the Andrews boy ever goes with either of his love interests is a chaste kiss. But there’s a tremendous undercurrent of horniness that has percolated beneath the pages for almost the franchise’s entire history. To find out the source of that horniness, we need to head to the Archie offices at the end of the 1950s when a young artist named Dan DeCarlo walked in the door looking for work.DeCarlo quickly became Archie’s go-to guy as his clean, open style replaced the more primitive look of Bob Montana. The pulchritudinous physiques of Betty and Veronica under DeCarlo’s pen came to define the characters looks — wasp waists, wide hips, and some serious D-cups. Sure, the look wasn’t very “teen,” but it stuck.Dan DeCarlo’s knack for drawing sexy girls wasn’t honed at Archie — before he started with the company, he’d drawn literally hundreds of bawdy gag cartoons for men’s magazines like Humorama featuring buxom babes in the same style. DeCarlo even drew smutty pin-ups featuring Betty and Veronica for private collectors. We’re sure the brass at Archie knew about his mature portfolio, but realized that a dose of sex appeal would bring the book to a slightly older and more hormonal audience. In an amusing story, when DeCarlo was forced out at Archie in the 1990s for younger, cheaper talent, he did an X-rated parody for Penthouse Comix and Archie immediately hired him back to prevent their iconic artist from sullying the brand any further.A Giant StepIt’s fair to say that the tipping point for Archie’s modern-day transformation came in 2010, in the pages of Veronica Issue #202. In it, Veronica turns her affection to a new kid in town — hunky Army brat Kevin Keller — only to find out he’s not interested in her because he’s gay. Kevin was the first openly gay character in Archie history, and the formerly staid company discovered that not only was their audience ready for them to take risks, but they were also guaranteed good publicity. Sure, a few moral scolds complained, but overall Kevin Keller was a tremendous success.From there, bringing the timeless world of Riverdale into the 21st century became Archie Comics’ new mission. Sure, the old-school reprints would continue, but the company was dedicated to modernization and diversification. They’d dabbled in different kinds of books before — most notably a few ill-fated superhero lines — but this was different. They wanted to take the core of Archie and make it something 21st century kids could relate to.Over the next few years, Archie Comics would essentially split their business in half. Long-term artists and writers like Dan Parent would continue producing the same general stuff they had been — lighthearted teen tales in the classic vein. But they would also reach into a wider talent pool, bringing in critically acclaimed names for a fresh, new approach.July 2015 saw the launch of Archie #1, written by Mark Waid, with art by Fiona Staples. This book looked and read like nothing the company had ever published — it was effortlessly modern and new-feeling while still hitting the key notes, and it was soon followed by spin-offs that did the same for most of the cast. Suddenly, Archie had gone from background noise to the talk of the comics industry.Horror BusinessIn 1962, writer George Gladir and Dan DeCarlo added a new figure to the Archie universe — Sabrina Spellman, a young half-witch who lives with her aunts and her talking cat in Greendale (which is somewhere around Riverdale, naturally). Sabrina’s adventures let the company dabble in fantasy, and the character quickly became a hit. Sabrina anchored her own book, a 1970s cartoon series and more. In 1996, a live-action TV series based on the character premiered and ran for seven seasons with Melissa Joan Hart in the title role.Naturally, these were all pointed directly at the tween-age market that Archie had cultivated for half a century. But as part of the big pivot in the early 2010s, things changed for Sabrina as well. The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina series by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack takes place in the 1960s, with a teenage Sabrina dealing with the consequences of magic. That series spun out from 2013’s sleeper hit Afterlife With Archie, which told a surprisingly dark story about a zombie apocalypse overtaking bucolic Riverdale.The fact that the company was willing to put their iconic characters in these strange and mature situations was a big deal, and what came to be known as the “Archie Horror” line grew with books about a vampire Veronica and a werewolf Jughead. The new Sabrina book is the direct inspiration for the Netflix series of the same name, starring Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka.Getting RealIn 2014, the CW announced that showrunner Greg Berlanti — who had already caught lightning in a bottle with Arrow — was working on a new comic book adaptation, this time away from the DC universe. Titled Riverdale, it would be a live-action drama targeting older teens, and it would start with a murder. Riverdale High quarterback Jason Blossom drowns in Sweetwater River, but when his body is found with a gunshot wound in the head it kicks off a twisted tale of intrigue, passion, and mystery with references to shows like Twin Peaks and Black Mirror. Riverdale‘s tremendous success — it just started a third season and continues to improve in the ratings — shows just how durable the Archie archetypes are after nearly a century. They’ve transformed into narrative icons, capable of hanging any sort of story on from innocent romps to mature soap operas.Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina looks to be taking the same tack. And that’s really the big success story of comic book media in the 21st century. These characters that have had the last few generations to establish themselves in the collective consciousness are now figures of American myth, and like all myths they’re transforming with the tellers. Nobody could have predicted that Archie would claw back from cultural insignificance to become such a potent force, but they’re just getting started. May America’s favorite horny teenager continue to change with the times.3 Things to Read Next:Geek.com’s Riverdale RecapsFrom PCMag: The Evolution of the Modern Comic BookFrom PCMag: 10 Digital Comics You Need to Read Right Now ‘Marvels’ Expands Marvel’s Podcast UniverseDamon Lindelof Starts Beef With Alan Moore Ahead of HBO’s ‘Watch…
Stay on target The Cinematic Sex of Marvel’s Netflix UniverseMarvel’s Axed Netflix Shows Could Be Revived by Disney It was a big surprise when the trailer for Season Two of Iron Fist came out and actually looked good. The first season was such a painful mess, it was hard to believe any amount of behind-the-scenes change could salvage it. Now that we’ve seen the first season… holy crap, it worked. It’s still can’t touch the best of what the Netflix Marvel Cinematic Universe has to offer, but it can at least hang with the rest of its siblings now. If there was ever any question about how much a new showrunner can change things, this is a definitive answer. Season Two of Iron Fist is better paced, better written and way better edited than its predecessor.From the first episode, you can feel that someone new is in the driver’s seat. Someone with a much steadier hand on the wheel. This season isn’t filled with handheld camera shots that obscure the action and make every fight scene a nauseating affair. It’s confident in its action scenes, letting us actually see what’s going on. The cuts are, for the most part, naturally placed too. You can follow a hit from initiation to reaction, even when in cases where it isn’t delivered in one shot. No, this season of Iron Fist didn’t take any pages from Daredevil’s book. There are no long takes or brutal hallway fights. But the action flows logically across the screen. There’s never a question of where you should be looking or what’s going on. That’s not something you could say about Season One.Sacha Dhawan, Finn Jones (Photo via Netflix)It’s almost become a cliche to complain about pacing when it comes to Netflix shows, so let’s get that complaint out of the way here. Very few showrunners have figured out how to make a truly bingeable TV series. There’s an argument to be made that TV isn’t meant to be watched all in one sitting, and there’s probably some truth to it. But that’s not the world we’re living in. If we’re invested in a show, we want to see what happens next right away. And the way Netflix brings you to the next episode after five seconds encourages that behavior. So whether or not it’s the best way to experience a season of television, it’s the way we’re doing it. TV writers and directors have to figure out a model that fits that behavior because it’s not going away.Season Two of Iron Fist didn’t figure it out, but it’s come closer than most other Marvel series. At only ten episodes long, it’s a shorter season than we usually get by three hours. That’s a huge help because it means there’s not a single episode without at least some major development happening. Yes, there is drag here, particularly just after the halfway point. There are episodes that end with a legitimately good cliffhanger, giving the next one a ton of momentum, only for that next episode to do next to nothing with it. Like when Danny tells Colleen that she has to be the next Iron Fist. I break out into a huge grin, the credits roll, the next episode starts… and the characters stand around talking for 30 minutes. They have the same conversation, with different words and different participants, only to conclude that yes, Colleen should become the next Iron Fist. Glad we spent so much time hashing that out.Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick (Photo via Netflix)That’s not the only time something like that happens either. Multiple episodes see a big, potentially exciting development only for the story to hit the brakes and talk it out for a few scenes. It’s like someone was afraid the show would run out of story if the momentum was allowed to carry forward. Thankfully, this time those slow periods don’t last entire episodes. Season Two is good about making sure each episode has a reason to exist. Though some individual episodes may drag (and they really can drag), the stilted scenes usually give way to a genuinely interesting story development, or at the very least a cool fight scene.Let’s talk about those fight scenes for a moment, because they are the most immediately obvious change from Season One. In addition to bringing on a new showrunner in Raven Metzner, Season Two hired fight choreographer Clayton Barber. From moment one, you know something’s changed. Danny’s motions are fast and fluid. The scenes are shot like the old kung fu movies that inspired the original comics, and Finn Jones has really stepped up his game. You don’t feel like the camera is hiding his deficiencies anymore. He’s clearly spent the time between Seasons One and Two training and it’s paid off here. The hits are hard and the camera lets you see all the action. It’s basically what we all hoped an Iron Fist TV show would deliver when it was first announced.Sacha Dhawan, Alice Eve (Photo via Netflix)Another major improvement over Season One: The villain. Season Two has one from the start that carries through the whole season. The first season couldn’t decide on an antagonist and we ended up with two or three hastily introduced, quickly dispatched villains. Season Two gives us Davos, who is such a good foil for Danny, he makes the character of Danny Rand better. Between The Defenders and Luke Cage, Danny Rand has become a lot more tolerable since his entitled white boy persona in Season One. In this season, he feels like a superhero. He uses his talents to help people and he has a clear goal from the start.Davos is responsible for a lot of that. He has a personal history with Danny that we come to learn over the course of the season. He has a clear motivation for wanting to fight Danny and remake New York in his image. Davos is the anti-Danny Rand. He too was raised believing himself to be the heir to great power. Only he never got his. You can always at least understand where a good villain is coming from. You can see the reason behind their actions as something more than “they’re just crazy.” In his own mind, Davos is the hero. He sees Danny’s refusal to kill as a sign that he’s too weak to carry the Iron Fist. Is it the most original motivation? No. But for this story, it works. And hey, it’s not like the Iron Fist comics were known for originality back in the day.Sacha Dhawan, Finn Jones (Photo via Netflix)It is a little awkward that the camera cuts away whenever Davos does any real damage with his red Iron Fist. When he breaks Danny’s leg or kills the restaurant owner, the camera awkwardly cuts to a reaction shot. There’s plenty of violence in the show already, and I really thought those scenes would have been more effective if they showed the hit. Davos would have been a much scarier villain if we saw what he was actually doing with the Fist, rather than just being told.That’s a recurring problem with this show that continues into Season Two. It does an awful lot of telling us things about its characters and very little showing. We’re told of Davos’ acts of brutality. We’re told it’s having a negative effect on the community, and we’re told it’s putting innocent people in danger. We’re never shown these things. I don’t need a prolonged Triad massacre every episode in the second half of the season, but I would have liked to be shown why Davos’ methods are dangerous. Other than knowing that killing and fascism are bad. The shows habit of telling us everything through exposition stumps Danny’s character growth as well. We’re shown one brief moment of Danny about to use the Fist on someone, Colleen looking scarred and Danny backing down from murder. That’s it, and in the later episodes, we’re told Danny’s been struggling with the temptation to use the Iron Fist like Davos does. He takes Colleen to an abandoned room where he’s been punching the hell out of a metal door to work out his anger. This is all told to us in dialog. You know, if we had been shown this consistently throughout the season, this scene could have had an impact.Simone Missick, Jessica Henwick (Photo via Netflix)That speaks to what’s still the biggest issue with Iron Fist, even as it’s gotten so much better. Danny Rand is still the lamest character on his own show. Sure, he’s not a tone deaf Brooklyn-looking hippie whitesplaning kung fu to Asian people anymore, but he’s outclassed by everyone else on screen. You get the sense that the show knows it too. As much as this is Danny’s story, we spend so much of it focusing on more interesting people. Colleen Wing and Misty Knight, in particular, have electrifying chemistry and can run circles around Jones as far as fight scenes go. The Netflix MCU is screaming for a Daughters of the Dragon series every moment these two are on screen together. It’s telling that when Danny told Colleen she would have to become the next Iron Fist, I yelled “Hell! Yes!” to my empty apartment. It was the most excited this show has ever made me until the very end of the season when we see Colleen using her white Iron Fist powers in conjunction with her sword. Now that’s a show I want to watch.Even Ward, who was a slightly more likable version of Donald Trump Jr. last season, is a more interesting character to watch than Danny. He has a very human story about dealing with loss and getting over addiction. He desperately wants to rebuild his family, even when his family has no interest in rebuilding. He’s realized that Danny is the closest thing he has to a brother, and he’s very protective of that relationship. This season actually makes you root for Ward Meachum. He even makes Danny better, giving him a partner who’s not a love interest or superhero to balance out his more annoying tendencies. Even in the comics, Iron Fist has always worked better with a bro by his side. In fact, the Netflix MCU’s rehabilitation Danny Rand started by pairing him with Luke Cage in The Defenders. Ward Meachum is no Luke Cage, but he gets the job done.Alice Eve, Finn Jones (Photo via Netflix)Then there’s Typhoid Mary, played by Alice Eve. Eve is a fantastic actor, and lights up every scene she’s in here. The big reveal about her character is telegraphed way too early, but the story handles it well. If you’re a fan of the comics, you know her deal already anyway. She has dissociative identity disorder, which manifests itself as three separate identities. Well, two at first. The reveal of the third is handled very well, and the way Eve plays it, you can feel her fear as she discovers it. There’s Mary, who Danny first meets. She’s a sweet, if a little spacey, former Wisconsinite new to the city. Then there’s Walker, a violent mercenary hired by Joy Meachum to keep an eye on, and later kidnap, Danny.I know we’re all tired of superhero origin stories at this point, but I still love a good villain origin. And the way this one plays out over the course of a season is a lot of fun. As a mercenary, she swaps allegiances throughout the show. It’s effective because you never know what side she’s truly on. Even when everything seems on the up and up, there’s an added layer of tension just from the fact that Mary/Walker’s there, and you can never be sure what her ultimate plan is. I was glad to see the season stretch her origin out over the full ten episodes. Eve is an amazing gift to this series, and if there is a Season Three, she needs to be a part of it. Right at the end of the season, she discovers the existence of her third personality. The one that really got her out of a POW camp when she was in the military. Mary and Walker both always assumed the other had gotten them out somehow. In reality, it was Bloody Mary. The sadistic killer third personality who left her captors in a bloody mess on the floor. We don’t get to see her this time around, but I’d be excited to watch Eve take on that role in Season Three.Tom Pelphrey, Finn Jones (Photo via Netflix)For all its problems, and Iron Fist Season Two still has some big problems, that’s the most amazing thing about it. It made a strong argument for Season Three. It used the other, stronger characters in its cast to lift the show up and Danny along with it. It gave Danny a clear purpose and a compelling villain to fight against. It gave us all the Colleen Wing we wanted and a taste of the Daughters of the Dragon show we still crave. (Give it to us, Netflix!) It was even able to make Danny Rand as the Iron Fist cool, though it waited until the final scene to do it. Right at the end, we’re shown that he and Ward have spent a few months adventuring through Asia, thwarting international criminals. The final shot is of Danny with two Iron Fists somehow, combining them with dual-pistols to shoot a hitman’s bullet out of the air. It may have had its weak points, but Iron Fist Season Two made me want more Iron Fist. I did not see that coming.Wondering when the other superhero shows will be out?

Stay on target Apple’s Sexy New iPhone Lineup Includes XS, XS Max, and XRiPhone 9 Probably Won’t Include Headphone Adapter Nearly a decade ago, Apple gave us a way to remotely wipe iPhone and iPads… just in case they fell into the wrong hands. Last week, one New York woman figured it was a handy way to dispose of incriminating evidence.Schenectady Police allege that 24-year-old Juelle L. Grant was the driver of a vehicle that was involved in a drive-by shooting. After interviewing Grant, police informed her that her iPhone X was being seized as evidence.It’s a logical enough move by the authorities. Investigators were no doubt hoping that the phone’s location data would place Grant at the scene of the crime. There could’ve been plenty of other useful information on the device, too.They may never know, however. See, while Grant’s iPhone sat in evidence she decided to… er… exercise her privilege against self-incrimination.She figured that the best defense was a good offense and signed in to iCloud. Grant then remotely wiped her phone, the Daily Gazette reported.It probably seemed like a pretty crafty move at the time, but now she’s facing additional charges: a double-shot of tampering with evidence. A single charge can carry a sentence as long as 20 years if it’s connected to a serious crime.There is, of course, a simple and inexpensive way to prevent that sort of thing: faraday bags. The bags only cost a few bucks each and they’re easy to find online.Unfortunately for prosecutors in this case it appears as though the Schenectady PD either didn’t own any or forgot to place this particular phone in one. If they had, iCloud wouldn’t have been able to send the wipe command when Grant clicked the button.It’s probably safe to presume that the officers in evidence have already put in a requisition so they can avoid a repeat situation in the future.More on Geek.com:Apple Potentially Opening Pilot Program for Vintage Product RepairsYou Know Your Smartphone is Spying on You But It’s Worse Than You ThinkSamsung’s Foldable Phone Can Fold Out Into a Tablet
Explore further Image: Path Intelligence The mechanism at play is called FootPath Technology, which works through antennas placed throughout a shopping center.The monitoring units measure signals from people’s mobile phones. According to FootPath’s company, Path Intelligence, based in Portsmouth in the UK, the technology is able to locate a person’s position to within a few meters. The antennas capture the unique identification number of the shopper’s phone. The data is fed to a processing center where the data is audited and undergoes statistical analysis. The shopper-flow information is continuously updated At any time, shopping center management can access the data via the Path Intelligence web-based reporting system. Retailers and mall management have long been excited about capturing drill-down data to support decisions about optimal inventory, position in the mall, staffing, and customer demographics. For the industry, this is one more survival data tool. For mall management, knowing more about their shopper traffic is their lifeblood. People’s patterns of movement can give them a better opportunity to profit and keep drawing in traffic by ensuring a better so-called “shopping experience.” They are eager to know if shoppers from store A go to store B, and how long a shopper remains in any one store. They also get a handle on which stores are being ignored altogether.Management at both malls say that personal data is not at risk, as personal data is not tracked. Signs posted around the malls will give visitors the opportunity to shut off their phones.Sucharita Mulpuru, retail analyst at Forrester Research, has said that as more retailers move to roll out this kind of technology, the scenario will have to be for them to ask customers to opt in, not opt out. In retail stores, counting people has already been in use through the implementation of various technologies such as infrared beams, computer vision and thermal imaging. Path Intelligence launched with the idea of bringing online analytics to the offline world. The company wanted to close the information gap about offline customer movements. They sought to provide retail clients with a richer level of information so that they were not just getting people counts but also retail analysis. Mall deal gives big boost to cell-phone coupons Citation: Holiday customers will be tracked by their phones (2011, November 24) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-11-holiday-customers-tracked.html (PhysOrg.com) — Black Friday shoppers in California and Virginia might learn their phones are being tracked as they move along the mall. That’s the plan at the Promenade Temecula in southern California and Short Pump Town Center in Richmond, Virginia. The malls intend to monitor signals from peoples’ cell phones starting on Black Friday and running through New Year’s Day. Their movements will be tracked as they go from store to store.
