Caitlyn Jenner Gets ESPY Award

Posted On Nov 18 2019 by

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Caitlyn Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs on July 16 while urging acceptance for others who are transgender.She received a standing ovation from some of the sporting world’s biggest stars after her 10-minute speech during the annual awards honoring the year’s top athletes and moments.“This transition has been harder on me than anything I can imagine,” said Jenner, who revealed she was in the process of becoming a woman in a televised interview with Diane Sawyer in April on ABC.From the stage, Jenner thanked Sawyer, whom she called a friend.Noting her powerful celebrity platform, the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion and current reality TV star vowed “to do whatever I can to reshape the landscape of how transgender people are viewed and treated.”Abby Wambach of the U.S. soccer team that won the Women’s World Cup presented the trophy to Jenner, whose voice broke as she thanked members of her famous family, including stepdaughters Kim and Khloe Kardashian. Tears welled in the eyes of Jenner’s younger daughter, Kylie, whose sister, Kendall, wiped a tear from her eye.“I never wanted to hurt anyone else, most of all my family and my kids,” said Jenner, wiping her eye. She admitted that until earlier this year she had never met another transgender person.The 65-year-old told the audience about trans teenagers who are bullied, beaten up, murdered or kill themselves. Jenner mentioned two people by name whose deaths particularly touched her.“Trans people deserve something vital, they deserve your respect,” she said. “From that respect comes a more compassionate community.”Jenner urged the crowd that included football, basketball, baseball and hockey superstars to remember what they say and do is “absorbed and observed by millions of people, especially young people.”“My plea for you tonight is one join me in making this one of your issues as well,” she said. Many in the crowd watched intently as Jenner spoke with little reaction on their faces.“If you want to call me names, make jokes and doubt my intentions, go ahead because the reality is I can take it,” she said. “But for thousands of kids out there coming to terms with the reality of who they are they shouldn’t have to take it.”A video narrated by Mad Men actor Jon Hamm traced Jenner’s life from the time when she was known as Bruce Jenner to her current transition. She mentioned she once considered ending her own life with a gun she owned.She was shown applying makeup, buttoning her blouse in her closet and fastening the strap on her heeled shoes.With her trembling hands clasped in front of her, Jenner joked with the audience about her struggle to select the cream gown she wore.“OK girls, I get it,” she said, as the audience laughed. “You’ve got to get the shoes, the hair, the makeup, it was exhausting. And the fashion police, please be kind on me. I’m new at this.”Jenner didn’t walk the red carpet outside the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, and she didn’t appear backstage to talk with reporters, as most of the previous Ashe award recipients have done. ESPN said Jenner wanted her onstage comments to stand.Reaction among Jenner’s sporting peers on the red carpet was mixed.Little League baseball pitcher Mo’ne Davis called Jenner “brave.”“She’s really brave to have the courage to get through a lot of those things,” said the 14-year-old who won best breakthrough athlete. “I know a lot of people give her a hard time about it, but just for her family to give her that support is amazing.”Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield said, “I just know that’s Bruce Jenner and I’ll leave it at that.”RadarOnline.com reported that Jenner’s representatives approached ESPN suggesting the network give her the Ashe award in exchange for plugs on her upcoming E! docuseries. ESPN and ABC are owned by Disney.“That rumor is completely false,” ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said. “The Arthur Ashe Courage Award and ABC interview were never connected.”Jenner’s publicist Alan Nierob called the report “utterly false” and had no further comment.Jenner’s selection to receive the Ashe award named for the late tennis player who died in 1993 after contracting AIDS from a blood transfusion generated strong debate online.“I met Arthur Ashe a few times. I know how important education was to him,” Jenner said. “Learn as much as you can about another person to understand them as well as you can.”Online critics said college basketball player Lauren Hill, who died of brain cancer in April, was deserving of the Ashe honor.But Hill’s mother, Lisa, attended the show and said her daughter would not have welcomed the controversy and made no judgment of others.Jenner’s series called I Am Cait debuts July 26.___By Beth Harris, AP Sports Writer.

CREA wants parents to assist children with home purchase with their RRSPs

Posted On Oct 17 2019 by

first_imgVANCOUVER – The federal government should allow parents who want to help their offspring with the purchase of a home to tap into their retirement savings, says The Canadian Real Estate Association, which also wants the maximum withdrawal limit bumped up by $10,000.Extending the Home Buyers’ Plan to allow for “intergenerational RRSP loans” would ease the financial burden that many young Canadians face when trying to purchase a home for the first time, wrote CREA in its 2018 pre-budget submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance.Under the current plan, first-time buyers can withdraw up to $25,000 from their RRSPs to contribute to the purchase of a home. The tax-free loan must generally be repaid within 15 years.Allowing parents access to the plan would help many first-time buyers enter the market and ease their financial obligations, the association said.Recent and rapid home price increases have resulted in many parents already gifting downpayment money to children.The national average price for a home sold in October was $505,937, up five per cent from a year ago, according to figures the association released earlier this month.Two of the countries hottest housing markets have been contributing to those gains.In October, the benchmark price of a property in Greater Vancouver hit $1,042,300, up 12.4 per cent from the previous year, according to figures from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. Meanwhile, in the Greater Toronto Area that month the average property price was $780,104, up 2.3 per cent with the previous October, according to figures from the Toronto Real Estate Board.The Toronto agency said it is also lobbying the federal government to modernize and expand the Home Buyers’ Plan, saying the HBP “effectively amounts to a zero-interest self-loan” because it allows Canadians to borrow from their own savings.“A formalized mechanism which allows for the transfer of RRSP funds from parents to their children would help not only increase the available down payment and reduce the amount borrowed, but also limit risk to the lender,” the TREB said in a statement.Nearly one in five first-time homebuyers received help from a family member with a downpayment, according to a Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. online survey of 3,002 mortgage consumers completed in March.The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.A formalized mechanism that allows parents to transfer their RRSP savings — up to the maximum $25,000 — would help increase available downpayment amounts, reduce the amount borrowed and limit risk to the lender, CREA said.The association wants both parents to be eligible to loan funds from their RRSPs to anyone they had previously claimed as dependents on their income tax return.While CREA’s proposal is not unreasonable, there’s no obvious answer to whether people should be able to dip into retirement savings — tax-free — to fund a property downpayment, said Thomas Davidoff, a professor at the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business.He’s concerned the plan could be a risk for people who are undersaving for retirement and would be utilized more by wealthier families, amounting to a transfer from less wealthy families to better off ones.It would also likely push up housing prices, he said.“Part of what you do when you subsidize housing in any way is push up the price,” he said, “which just helps property owners rather than buyers.”The biggest thing the federal government should be considering when it comes to their approach to real estate and taxation is how to add tax burden to real estate, he said — not subtract it. The government could, for example, limit how much of a principal residence’s capital gains are tax exempt when it is sold.In addition to expanding the home buyers’ plan to include parents, CREA also suggested the government extend it to homeowners who relocate for work, decide to accommodate an elderly family member or suffer the loss of a spouse or a marital breakdown.CREA also asked the government to increase the maximum withdrawal amount by $10,000 to help first-time buyers make larger downpayments and take on less debt.— Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.last_img read more

Could A San Antonio Federal Panel Resolve Texas Redistricting Issue After Six

Posted On Sep 2 2019 by

first_imgRYAN POPPEIt might be hard to believe, but Texas’s voting maps, those lines that decide where your representative district is and what seat you’re voting for, have been in flux for the past six years.As heard on Texas Public RadioLarge swaths of the state from Dallas to San Antonio out towards El Paso have had their congressional and state House districts disputed since 2011.  That’s when the state’s Republican-led legislature re-drew the maps. The Texas Constitution requires the state legislature re-draw these districts after each census, to make sure these geographic boundaries contain the same amount of people.Minority advocacy groups did not like those 2011 maps, and said they were deliberately designed to negatively affect African American and Latino voters. Cue lawsuits, court battles, and then just last month a panel of federal judges ruled three Texas congressional districts were illegal.So after all these years, it’s not surprising many Texans feel like Lelena Fisher, a graphic designer from Austin. Here’s what she told us:“I’ve been wondering about the status of Texas’ redistricting? With all the drawn and redrawn maps, the court cases and all the time that has passed, it’s easy to lose track of this fundamental important issue, Fisher says.To understand where we’re headed, let’s look at where we’ve been. Minority advocacy groups sued the state in response to the maps the Texas legislature approved in 2011.But the 2012 election was just around the corner, so a federal court implemented its own interim maps.  The legislature liked those maps, and officially adopted them during the 2013 legislative session.   Problem solved, right? No. People like former state-Rep. Trey Martinez Fisher says those maps still intentionally diluted what had been traditional concentrations of Latino and African American voters.“In this instance they said ‘well lets draw some districts that look like minority opportunity districts but they’ll never have the opportunity because we can tell from election data that it will never elect a candidate of its choice,” Fisher says.Cue another lawsuit. Martinez Fisher sits on the board of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus and led that 2013 lawsuit against the state. Republican lawmakers disputed the lawsuit’s claims. They said the maps the court had drawn were sufficient and should stand.Since then the issue has kind of been in limbo. When Texans voted for their statehouse and congressional reps in 2014, they used those maps. The case just sitting in federal court until this past March, that’s when three-judge panel from San Antonio decided Texas congressional redistricting efforts were intentionally drawn to discriminate against minority voters.According to Rafael Anchia, a Dallas Democrat who leads the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, It happened in a few ways.“Whether they adopted in some areas of the state a packing technique that packed minorities into districts to dilute their voting strength or they cracked them in a way that you would a wagon wheel, where you take a concentrated community and break it up into multiple districts,” Anchia explains.Anchia, Fisher and the rest of MALC are still in court, scrambling to neutralize the maps before voters go to the polls in 2018. So what happens now? After last month’s decision by the federal court in San Antonio, they called the state and plaintiff groups to court on April 27th. They’ll try to figure out if there’s a quick way the court could remedy the situation.If not, they could order the legislature to handle it. But Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who presides over the Senate, has said he doesn’t see the need for the legislature to get involved until after the release of the next US census in 2020.“We will be back in session very shortly, in two years and that will be the session that begins to prepare us for the 2021 maps, so I don’t see any move to do that this session,” Patrick says.House lawmakers agree with him. They voted against dealing with redistricting this year. That’s why Nina Perales, the lead attorney in the current lawsuit, says what happens next will come from the federal court system, not the state Legislature and they’re running out of time.“Candidate filing opens in November of 2017, we have  to have lines draw in time for the start of candidate this fall.  And so there’s a lot of time pressure on the court right now to make some decisions before the election schedule overtakes us,” Perales explains.Otherwise Perales says the federal district court in San Antonio will have to delay the start of the 2018 election. As for the disputed 2013 House maps, the court is expected to release its opinion on them by end of this month or in early May.Copyright 2017 KSTX-FM. To see more, visit KSTX-FM.

Sony to Buy Additional 60 Stake in EMI Music Publishing for 23

Posted On Sep 1 2019 by

first_img Popular on Variety Sony Corporation announced today that is has signed a deal to acquire Mubadala Investment Company’s 60% equity interest in EMI Music Publishing. The deal will raise Sony’s stake in EMI to around 90%, based on an enterprise value of $4.75 billion.As a result of the transaction, Sony will indirectly own approximately 90% of the equity interest in EMI Music Publishing and it will become a consolidated subsidiary of Sony. The closing of the transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.While the final purchase price to be paid by Sony for all of Mubadala’s equity interest in EMI Music Publishing is subject to customary closing adjustments, the total cash consideration Sony expects to pay to consolidate EMI Music Publishing is approximately $2.3 billion. Since that acquisition, Sony/ATV has been the top publisher in each quarter except one. The company is the world’s largest music publisher, with songs by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Leonard Cohen, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Carole King, Kraftwerk, Joni Mitchell, Willie Nelson, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Sting, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Hank Williams and Stevie Wonder among the thousands in its repertoire.Hani Barhoush, Head of Mubadala Capital, said: “EMI has been a successful investment for Mubadala and I would like to personally extend my appreciation to the leadership at Sony and Sony/ATV, who have been instrumental in administering the EMI catalog as well as shaping the music landscape on a global basis.

In the entertainment space, we are focusing on building a strong IP portfolio, and I believe this acquisition will be a particularly significant milestone for our long-term growth.”The purchase staves off what could have been a contentious bidding process, should Mudabala have opened up its investment share to other potential buyers. According to sources, Warner Music Group owner Len Blavatnik was hot on the property, as were other music companies. But with Sony already owning a significant portion of EMI, its ideal situation was to keep intact as much of Sony/ATV as possible — preferably, all of it. Ultimately, says an insider, the publishing company is but a small “kernel” of Sony’s overall business, though it is a growing sector. Sony/ATV in particular has seen growth of 100% in the last five years under chairman Marty Bandier.The deadline for Mubadala to accept bids was the end of May, with the month of June earmarked for a review.In 2012, Bandier led the effort to acquire EMI’s publishing unit — bringing in 1.3 million copyrights for songs by Carole King, Norah Jones, Motown classics, and standards like “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” — in a deal valued at $2.2 billion. At the time, Sony/ATV operated as a joint venture with the Michael Jackson estate (in January 2016, Sony/ATV exercised a buy-sell option to acquire the 50% it didn’t own — the price tag: $750 million) and, together, the two entities claimed 40% of EMI Music Publishing, with Sony/ATV taking a fee of 15% of NPS (Net Publisher Share) to administer the EMI copyrights. Holding the other 60% was a consortium of investors including the Jackson estate (with 10% ownership), Mubadala, Jynwel Capital, Blackstone Group’s GSO Capital Partners and David Geffen.last_img read more


Monster Hunter World Arrives on PC Earlier Than Expected

Posted On Sep 1 2019 by

first_imgStay on target ‘God Eater 3’ on Switch Brings Franchise Back to Its RootsHands-On: ‘Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’ Beta Left Us Hung… Players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have enjoyed playing Monster Hunter: World since late January. While a PC port was promised, gamers on that platform were going to have to hold out until this fall. This is no longer the case as Capcom has announced the PC version of Monster Hunter: World launches on August 9 on Steam.According to Capcom, the PC version of Monster Hunter: World will receive free updates and Collaboration Quests after the game is released. The console versions have gotten quite a substantial amount of post-launch content. It is likely that all of this material will make it over to PC. However, Capcom did not detail exactly when this content will arrive. Previous Collaboration Quests included crossovers with Street Fighter and Devil May Cry. This summer will see a collaboration with Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV, so it’s safe to assume PC players will get to try it out along with the previously mentioned quests.AdChoices广告Capcom also detailed the game’s recommended and minimum specs. You can see them listed below:RECOMMENDEDOS: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-bit required)Processor: Intel Core i3 8350 4GHz or Intel Core™ i7 3770 3.4GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500XMemory: 8 GB RAMGPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060(VRAM 3 GB) or AMD Radeon RX 570X (VRAM 4 GB)DirectX Version 11Storage: 20 GB available spaceSound Card: DirectSound compatible (DirectX 9.0c or higher)Mouse, keyboard and game pads (both DirectInput and XInput) are supported. 30 fps at 1080p on high graphic settings.MINIMUMOS: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-bit required)Processor: Intel Core i5-4460, 3.20GHz or AMD FX-6300 aboveMemory: 8 GB RAMGPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 OR AMD Radeon R7 260xVRAM 2 GB and above)DirectX Version 11Storage: 20 GB available spaceSound Card: DirectSound compatible (DirectX 9.0c higher)Mouse, keyboard and game pads (both DirectInput and XInput) are supported. 30 fps at 1080p on low graphic settings.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Travel Retrospective 2018

Posted On Aug 17 2019 by

first_imgSource = STUBA Travel Retrospective 2018With Christmas travel league done and dusted, painkillers failing to deaden the embarrassment of those awkward dance moves at the after party…. but hey, everyone is human….2018, is just about done.One more week of trade to go, and then for many some well earned rest.I know from our perspective I am pretty keen for a rest. Whilst our merger has been more successful than we could have possibly hoped for (in no small part to an astounding level of diligent effort from a ton of people) it’s a tiring process. To start it’s a new job on top of the old job.I’m quite looking forward to mowing the lawn and mulling things over. But it’s pretty exciting toNext year will continue to be challenging. Challenges create opportunities – so who are you going to be – one who steps up, steps out and hit the ground running in 2019 or let someone else make the decisions for you?Here’s five things to consider for your planning 2019Technology still hasn’t trumped peopleI love coming to work because I have a wonderful group of people in my office . They are an awesome team, they are at times incredibly irreverent towards me and I give them full authority to be exactly that way! They make all of our customers happy and in turn, they make my job easier.This is still a people business. If those people are complaining bitterly on glassdoor there is a very good chance it’s gonna be a tough company to deal with when things get tough.Advice: start by getting the right people and treating them better than they expect.Broken suppliers There has definitely been challenges with suppliers going broke this year which sends chills down the spines of agents. Losing or choosing not to have ATAS accreditation has scared enough people to validate that there is still perceived brand value in AFTA. That’s a good thing.Advice: ask the questions!(For the record we have ATAS and are one of the very few companies trading in Pacific who have a high credit worthiness rating from S&P as well as ISO accreditation. Got a question? Have no fear calling!)It’s an election yearUp and down and about six weeks out everyone stops spending money and goes into a panic mode. Then the day after someone is elected, probably a change in government, the sun rises and we get on with business again. But it will freak people out. Always does.Advice: Build the humour of the election into your marketing.Global PoliticsPolitics has no place in travel! But just now, Trump, Trudeau, Jinping, Brexit, Huawei and Putin I changing that landscape every day. It might mean a little more hostility at customs, it probably means that your data will be stolen without you knowing  and worst-case,  you can’t get back into the UK because as far as Europe is concerned, it doesn’t exist anymore.Advice: no fake news is fun to useHousing marketIt’s great that more people can afford to buy houses but the banks are making it harder for them to borrow money. And if they buy houses, they annoyingly might stop spending money on holidays they couldn’t afford.  But it’s going to push down interest rates….Advice: don’t sell travel products but holiday dreams that invest in personal joy and enlightenment.www.stuba.com learn more about stuba.com herelast_img read more

first_imgThe Gottis made sure the Travoltas were well fed for ‘Gotti’ NEW YORK, N.Y. – John Travolta and Kelly Preston didn’t just receive the Gotti family’s blessing to make a biopic about the late, infamous crime boss, they also were fed well, in true Italian style.“Victoria Gotti made us a gorgeous spread one afternoon. It was awesome,” recalled Travolta at the film’s premiere Thursday.“We’ve had quite a few meals. Quite a few great Italian meals,” added Preston, who plays Gotti’s wife, Victoria. “Victoria cooked us dinner, an amazing dinner in the same house that she and John lived in for many years, and the family was in and out and we spent all day long together and it was wonderful and then we’ve had other meals together. We had a great meal just when we landed here four or five days ago after the whole family had seen the film and that was incredible because they loved it. That was thrilling.”John Gotti, who died in prison in 2002, was head of the Gambino crime family and was convicted of murder and racketeering in 1992. “Gotti,” which opens in the United States on Friday, has been in the works for years, with even Lindsay Lohan in the running to play the mobster’s daughter in an early iteration. Travolta says the end result is worth it.“Good things are worth waiting for and we were waiting for this and I think all the time we waited, we built up such a plethora of information and we found out how to design the film itself and I think we had time to work on the characters and be better at what we did, so I think it’s a different film if we had done it then, than now and a better one.”The actor says one of the things viewers will take away from the film is how popular Gotti was.“Unlike (John) Dillinger and (Al) Capone, Gotti was loved and I discovered why he was loved. He was actually like a local Robin Hood, he was a good will factor to many situations, whether it was putting businesses back in the black, and profit again or supporting families that weren’t doing well, or neighbourhood celebrations, so they loved him on a personal level,” Travolta said.The movie “Gotti” was sanctioned by the family, and some critics say it’s too sympathetic and favourable toward a mafia boss. by Alicia Rancilio, The Associated Press Posted Jun 15, 2018 9:22 am PDT Last Updated Jun 15, 2018 at 10:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img Victoria Gotti, left, and Kelly Preston attend the premiere of “Gotti” at the SVA Theatre on Thursday, June 14, 2018, in New York.

first_imgFebruary 15, 2004From Seattle Washington, From Seattle Washington, The Dead Science and Parenthetical Girls performed what they call freaky jazz-pop with cha-cha rhythm in the octogon this past week. Shown in this photo is Parenthetical Girls who opened the show. Parenthetical Girls played some very avant guard rock with a strong Phil Specter influence.With their drummer gone Dead Science performed as a duo. Recently their drummer had a child and was unable to tour with them. To compensate the bass player, who also played drums with Slender Means added percussion on his upright bass. Both bands were really talented musicians and contributed a cabaret feel to the octogon. After playing the octogon both bands are hoping to take time off from touring to stop at Disneyland in California.[photo: Brad Crutchfield]last_img read more
