From the Real Housewives to Killing Eve the 10 best TV series

first_img Facebook Pose is a visual, musical and poetic feast of personality. One of Ryan Murphy’s many television offspring, it tells the tale of the New York City drag scene in the late ’80s. The AIDS epidemic lingers as we watch the poor and the privileged intersect behind closed doors with a genuine, un-exploitative eye. Pose also happens to feature the largest LBGTQ ensemble ever gathered for a scripted series, with Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson and Indya Moore, all trans women of colour, leading the way. Each episode packs an emotional punch.9.A VERY ENGLISH SCANDALForget Mary Poppins. The greatest English comeback of the year has been Hugh Grant’s. First, with the great Paddington 2. And here, where he plays the two-faced Jeremy Thorpe, a British MP who, in 1979, was accused of conspiring to murder his former lover, Norman Scott (a similarly two-faced Ben Whishaw), when homosexuality was still illegal. The witty, melodramatic three-episode miniseries follows what transpired after Scott threatened to expose Thorpe post-break-up. The entire affair is a promising sign of where Grant’s resuscitated career could take him, transforming his once indelible rom-commy charm into something much scarier. Advertisement There have never been more options on television. It’s worth keeping this in mind while reading from the end-of-year bemoaning that this year’s crop of series has been a sorry display. Truth be told: there’s simply too much to make a call. Any concept of “catching up” was left behind in 2017. From animation to drama to even procedural, the options are limitless as cable and streaming networks continue to duke it out in not only the battle for the best but the most.While that certainly leaves a lot of space for a lot of trash (of which we saw plenty this year), there have also been dozens of gems. Here’s a smattering of the best:HONOURABLE MENTION: BARRY (CRAVE)It’s long been said that the greatest comic talents have the deepest reserves of drama. In Barry, Bill Hader plays a depressed assassin who follows his latest target into an acting class, suddenly propelling him into dreams of a new life as a (very bad) actor. That is, if the mob who hired him lets him go. It’s a delicious new era for Hader, who captures a man seemingly devoid of emotion, so desensitized to the crime around him.10.POSE (FX CANADA) Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment center_img Sharp Objects, Killing Eve, Forever.

Solar industry blames tariffs for cancelled delayed projects

first_imgNEW YORK — The solar industry is blaming tariffs for delays and cancellations of major solar energy projects.An estimated $8 billion worth of utility-scale projects were cancelled or put on hold for the five-year period that ends in 2022, according to a new report from the Solar Energy Industry Association and Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables. The report says 9,000 jobs — mainly in construction and engineering — were either lost or not added because of the tariffs.In January, President Donald Trump imposed tariffs of up to 30 per cent on most imported solar cells used in solar panels, aiming to boost domestic manufacturing. The tariff rate will decline before phasing out after four years.Projects were cancelled during the lead-up to the announcement, when installers, banks and power purchasers did not know how high the tariff would be, according to Dan Whitten, spokesman for the Solar Energy Industry Association, the solar industry’s main trade group.“People kind of deferred planning,” Whitten said. “They decided not to go forward with projects, because of that uncertainty.”But analysts at Wood Mackenzie are expecting many of the delayed projects to come online by the end of the year.About 10 per cent of solar panels installed in the U.S. are made domestically, Whitten said.Tariffs also were imposed on materials such as steel, aluminum and electrical components, adding to the cost of building a solar farm.“The only way that we are able to deliver projects is if we are the lowest cost alternative to what a utility is proposing to build themselves,” said Bret Sowers, vice-president of development and strategy at Southern Current, which builds solar farms mainly in the Southeast. “When you add up all of the tariffs, in addition to the tariffs on solar panels, the solar industry got hit really hard based on the components we use to build our projects.”Southern Current cancelled or delayed about $130 million worth of projects that were planned for 2018 and a similar amount in 2019, Sowers said. The type of panels Southern Current uses are not currently made in the U.S., he said.Cypress Creek Renewables cancelled or delayed $1.5 billion worth of solar projects that were planned for 2018 through 2020 because the higher cost of solar panels made it difficult to compete with other electricity sources, the company said.Despite the tariffs, solar installations held up reasonably well, said Jeff Berman, a director at S&P Global Platts Analytics, in an email. Berman expects the impact to diminish as the tariffs weaken over the next few years. He said a bigger driver of installations will be the federal solar investment tax credit. That tax credit of 30 per cent of the cost of residential or commercial solar systems will drop to 10 per cent for utility and commercial installations and zero out for residential installations after 2021.Representatives from the White House and the U.S. Trade Representative’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.Witten notes that even if the tariffs jumpstart manufacturing in the U.S. as the Trump administration intends them to, solar manufacturing is highly automated, so “not many jobs would be created.”Cathy Bussewitz, The Associated Presslast_img read more

GoT 8 refers back to first season

first_imgLos Angeles: Actor Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in ‘Game of Thrones’, says the first season of the show plays a huge role in what happens in the eighth and final season of the fantasy drama. Details about the final season of the HBO series are few and far between but the cast has teased a “bittersweet” ending. In an interview with the Entertainment Weekly, Williams said she re-watched the first season. “After reading the scripts I went back and watched season one again because so much of it refers back to that season,” Williams said. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: Priyanka”There are so many scenes that will look similar. And also I watched just to remind myself of the arc I’ve taken already, she added. Williams said Arya will strive to find normalcy without letting go off her plan to kill Cersei. “This year it’s like she has a dual personality there are so many emotions and memories that come flooding back when you’re with your family and the things that you fight for become very different, yet she’s also remaining on this path to try and kill Cersei,” she said.last_img read more

Hopes for Palestinian State hit by facts on the ground senior UN

Mr. Mladenov began his downbeat assessment by detailing the extent and growth of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank: the UN’s long-standing position on settlements, he reminded the Council, is that they are illegal under international law and “an obstacle to peace.” Recent examples include plans for over 3,000 housing units in West Bank settlements, and government plans to legalize several illegal outposts. At the same time, said Mr. Mladenov, Palestinian-owned structures have been demolished and seized across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, with authorities citing a lack of Israeli-issued building permits, which are nearly impossible for Palestinians to obtain, as justification.The foundations of a future Palestinian state are also being threatened by internal divisions, exacerbated by decades of occupation, and hopes for genuine intra-Palestinian, he added, are “fading by the day,” as the gap between Gaza and the West Bank widens. The early January arrest by Hamas of dozens of Fatah members in Gaza, was described by Mr. Mladenov as “particularly alarming,” and a “very serious blow to the reconciliation process.”It is ordinary Palestinians, said the Special Envoy, who are bearing the brunt of the suffering, and the humanitarian situation in Gaza remains “desperate” : economic growth is insufficient to keep the Palestinian economy afloat, and the UN is working with the Palestinian Authority to address some of Gaza’s most pressing needs, such as maintaining an electricity supply, delivering essential medicines and implementing cash-for-work programmes.The Special Envoy’s briefing was delivered on the same day that senior UN officials and NGO partners called for a halt to plans to forcibly evict several Palestinian refugee families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of East Jerusalem, part of the occupied Palestinian territory. In a statement, the officials said that forcible transfer is a “grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention,” and called on the Israeli authorities to “cease settlement construction, and abide by their obligations as an occupying power under international humanitarian law and international human rights law.”Mr. Mladenov wrapped up his briefing with a warning that the Palestinian Question risks descending into endless conflict and the steady rise of radicalization on all sides, and that, within the current political landscape, those seeking to bridge the gap between Israelis and Palestinians are being undermined.You can find more information on the Middle East open debate here. read more

President Maduro accused his rival of an “attempted coup”. Read our full story here. Gains by Abyei interim force can help advance resolution of border issues between Sudan and South Sudan, UN peacekeeping chief says Actor and director Ben Stiller testified on the humanitarian impact of the eight-year war in Syria on Capitol Hill, in Washington DC, on Wednesday. The brutal conflict has displaced over 5.6 million people since 2011. The Hollywood star appeared before the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee in his capacity as Goodwill Ambassador for the UN refugee agency, UNHCR.Highlighting the desperate circumstances faced by Syrian families he had met in refugee camps, he reminded US politicians that behind the numbers there are “real stories, real people”.Mr. Stiller shared the story of Syrian twins Razan and Yazan who left Syria when they were 4 months old. Eight years later, Yazan works selling vegetables in Lebanon, to help his family make ends meet. “We all want the same things, to see our children grow up and achieve their dreams”, he added.Syria accounts for the world’s largest number of forcibly-displaced people according to UNHCR. Mr. Stiller has traveled on mission to Guatemala, Germany and Jordan to meet with refugees who have fled their war-torn homes.UN rights experts call on Philippines Government to halt ‘unacceptable attacks’ on Victoria Tauli-Corpuz With murderous attacks against religious institutions on the rise, leaders across the world need to do more to end “political opportunism” and policies which allow hate speech and violent extremism to flourish, said the UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide on Wednesday.Speaking at the end of the second Global Summit on Religion, Peace and Security, at UN headquarters in Geneva, Adama Dieng noted that in the wake of dozens killed inside Sri Lanka churches, a synagogue attack in California, and killings inside a church in Burkina Faso, the threat of another genocide somewhere, was only growing larger.You can find our full coverage here, and download/listen to a short clip of Mr. Dieng’s statement.  The United Nations security force for Abyei remains essential to stability in the border regions between Sudan and South Sudan, the UN peacekeeping chief said on Tuesday, proposing the creation of a civilian unit to support progress towards political resolution of the dispute between the neighboring countries, and requesting a six-month extension of its mandate.“This modest shift in the mission’s role is necessary to match the reality on the ground,” Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations said during a briefing to the Security Council on the Secretary-General’s latest report on the work of the UN Interim Security Force, known by the acronym UNISFA.   Our full story can be found here.UN refugee agency’s Goodwill Ambassador Ben Stiller shares stories of Syrian refugees read more

The Chris Paul Conundrum

RATE STATISTICS 8Jason Kidd50,11117.9.133+1.543.9 Of course, Curry showed two years ago that it can be done — and he might have done it again last season, if not for the injury that slowed him down as the playoffs went on. And although Paul is not exactly the same kind of game-changing revolutionary as Curry, he comes with his own type of basketball genius, which manifests as putting passes exactly where they need to be to maximize his teammates’ chances of making the shot, dominating the midrange-shooting game in a way that actually makes it efficient, and rating as the league’s best defensive point guard (by a wide margin) despite being one of the shorter guards in the league. In other words, as far as we can tell, Paul has all the tools he needs to be a championship player, even though his teams haven’t made a serious run at the championship yet. So either today’s methods of observation haven’t fully captured Paul’s flaws while picking up what he does well (very possible, though less so as more advanced methods — such as plus/minus and player-tracking data — trickle into the stats) or he’s a genuine statistical anomaly.In any case, time is running out. As CBS’s Matt Moore wrote in August, the chance of Paul’s greatness being forgotten — or at least not fully appreciated — grows with each postseason disappointment. He’s played well enough in the playoffs, but whether the cause is bad luck, bad timing or simply that the NBA is not geared for players like him to carry championship squads, Paul has not made the kind of postseason impact that the rest of his résumé deserves. And with Curry’s Warriors gearing up with even more talent than when they broke the all-time wins record last year, it could be another futile springtime for Paul and the Clippers.Check out our NBA predictions.

And some of it might have to do with the grand plan the Clippers hatched five years ago, when they traded for the game’s best point guard and began taking steps to assemble a championship team around him.In the last 28 NBA seasons, a point guard has been the best player (according to VAR) on only two championship teams: the 2004 Detroit Pistons, where Chauncey Billups led an ensemble cast of characters — including Ben Wallace and Rasheed Wallace, each of whom could also have made a claim for “best player” honors — and the 2015 Golden State Warriors, where Steph Curry was busy redesigning the sport of basketball. Aside from those two really unusual cases, you’d have to travel back to Magic Johnson’s 1988 Los Angeles Lakers to find the last champ whose top statistical performer was a floor general. (Apologies to Isiah Thomas of the 1989 and ’90 Pistons, whose advanced statistics were never really in line with his Hall of Fame reputation.)In the intervening years, 17 big men4Centers or power forwards. have led championship squads, as have nine wing players.5Shooting guards or small forwards. But NBA teams led by point guards have averaged 14 percent fewer dynasty points per season than all others, despite being stronger during the regular season6As measured by efficiency differential. on average. Since the end of the Showtime 1980s, it’s been pretty tough to build a championship team with a point guard as its centerpiece.And throughout basketball history, that’s basically been the norm. Between the 1951-527The first season in which minutes played were tracked, and therefore the earliest year where we can track per-minute advanced statistics. and 1969-70 seasons, zero NBA champions had a point guard as their best statistical player. So in that sense, the 1970s and ’80s were anomalous, rife as they were with championship point guards such as Johnson, Walt “Clyde” Frazier of the Knicks and even the underappreciated Gus Williams of the 1979 Seattle SuperSonics. If we look at the entirety of NBA history, point guard-led teams have been about half as likely to win a championship as their peers, even after controlling8Via a logistic regression that attempts to predict a team’s probability of winning the championship based on its regular-season efficiency differential, the composite PER/WS plus-minus of its best player and whether or not that player was a point guard.

His career playoff averages — a 25.5 PER and .206 WS/48 — are down from his respective marks of 25.7 and .249 in the regular season; those playoff rates mean Paul was worth about 1.3 fewer points (per 100 possessions) to his team than he was in the regular season. The average playoff team since 2006 had a regular-season efficiency differential of +3.6, meaning the level of the competition rises in the playoffs, but we’d expect an individual player’s number to drop by only a fifth of that, since a team’s plus/minus impact is spread across all five players on the court, so Paul’s numbers have dropped almost twice as much as we’d expect them to in the postseason. 6Gary Payton47,11718.9.148+2.148.9 9Chauncey Billups33,00818.8.176+2.941.0 7Steve Nash38,06920.0.164+2.644.5 10Walt Frazier30,96519.1.176+3.139.7 1John Stockton47,76421.8.209+4.578.6 But there’s always that pesky question of the postseason: Although Paul’s teams have qualified for the playoffs in all but three of his 11 NBA seasons, they haven’t made it very far once there: They’ve lost in the first round four times and in the second round on four other occasions. And that’s it. In the entire history of the NBA, few players with individual numbers as great as Paul’s have seen so little postseason success.In fact, I have a system of playoff success points that can be used to measure a team’s postseason accomplishments in proportion to how many teams it had to beat out to get as far as it did. And only one NBA player — Karl Malone — ever accumulated fewer career dynasty points than Paul has, relative to what we’d expect based on their lifetime VAR tallies: Few point guards in NBA history have the résumé to go toe-to-toe with Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers. So how can it be that he’s never played in the conference finals?The battle lines on the topic of Chris Paul are well defined. On the one side, you have supporters of Chris Paul, Point God; on the other, a coalition of traditionalists, stat-skeptics and perplexed quants wondering how a player who dominates every advanced statistic we throw at him, and who has had excellent teammates for the last five seasons, has found so little playoff success. At its most basic level, this can devolve into a debate about the usefulness of stats in identifying a franchise player, versus, say, the ol’ Eye Test. Thankfully, Paul’s stature in the league helps fend off the worst of these arguments, but every great troll opinion has its own grain of truth. In this case: If every tool available to us says Paul is a Michael Jordan-level player, and if we believe basketball is the team sport most influenced by a single, all-powerful player, how do we explain Chris Paul’s dismal playoff record?Paul’s individual profile really is top-notch. Although he only turned 31 near the end of last season, Paul is already the sixth-most-decorated point guard1According to the positional designations at Basketball-Reference.com. ever in terms of MVP voting. His statistical portfolio is mind-boggling: Paul currently ranks as the most efficient point guard in NBA history, according to both career win shares per 48 minutes and player efficiency rating. Among all guards, period, he trails only Michael Jordan in each metric. If you combine both metrics into a composite statistical plus/minus index2No, PER isn’t a great stat, and win shares has its flaws as well; FiveThirtyEight readers know we much prefer the plus/minus family of advanced metrics, including box plus/minus (which powers our CARMELO projection system). But BPM is only available going back to 1973-74, and a proper contextualization of CP3’s career needs to include players from earlier eras — your Jerry Wests, Walt Fraziers, Oscar Robertsons and so forth. Fortunately, PER and WS are better together than they are apart, with PER’s love for high-usage players filling in WS’s blind fixation on efficiency. To be precise, I generated the combined version by figuring out the mix of each (relative to league average) that best correlates with Jeremias Engelmann’s Real Plus-Minus. The composite still isn’t better than, say, BPM, but it isn’t bad, either, particularly for comparing players across eras. and use that to measure each player’s career value above replacement (VAR),3VAR is structured the same as Basketball-Reference.com’s VORP, right down to the replacement level of -2.0 points per 100 possessions, but uses our PER/win shares composite as its foundation instead of box plus/minus. CP3 is the fifth-most-valuable point guard to ever set a sneaker on an NBA court: read more

Childrens Minister Six doctors is clearly too many for abortion panel

first_imgONE OF THE senior Cabinet members involved in discussions about proposed abortion legislation has said that any assessment process used in the case of women seeking terminations because of suicide ideation must not require “so many consultants that it becomes illusory”.“Six consultants is clearly too many,” Frances Fitzgerald told TheJournal.ie. “But having said that, much of medicine is involved in multi-disciplinary teams, and very rarely, medics act on their own.”The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs has been involved in high-level talks on the draft laws which aim to work out how to legislate for the Supreme Court ruling in the X Case 21 years ago.Reports today indicated that the legislation may not be in place by the summer recess because of a ministerial row about the structure of the laws. Though James Reilly has denied that pregnant women will face inquiry by six doctors, the Irish Times reported today that Fine Gael ministers are holding out for two separate panels of three doctors to be consulted first – with a 12-member appeals panel dealing with any disputes.Echoing the Taoiseach’s earlier words, Fitzgerald said, “It is challenging but both parties are determined that there will be Heads of Bill developed and the legislation will, hopefully, be enacted before the summer.”The Fine Gael TD said she wants the legislation to be sensitive and meaningful to women, as well as reasonable and sensible.“We have to be reasonable about it and understand the concerns that people have out there about a regime that is extremely permissive. No one wants that,” she said.“But at the same time, you also want it to be meaningful for women who find themselves in this extraordinarily difficult situation where there life is at risk, for physical reasons or mental health reasons.”Enda Kenny has suggested that the summer break could be deferred by a week to ensure that the abortion laws, and other legislation, would be enacted.-Camera and editing by Paul HylandEarlier: Ministers’ row means abortion law may miss summer deadlineRead: Ireland tells Europe that ‘X case’ law will be enacted by Julylast_img read more

Riven by complex ethnic and religious divides, Rakhine is now witnessing deadly battles between the Myanmar army and the Arakan Army (AA), a group that claims to represent the state’s ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and is vying for more autonomy.

Water level at Spioenkop Dam rising

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Rainfall this year has picked up the water levels at Spioenkop Dam, which will bring relief to the residents of Ladysmith and surrounding areas.Rumours on social media and talk around town that fallen trees were blocking the sluice gates of the dam and water was let out of the dam are not true. If these rumours were true, the dam levels would have decreased and not increased. Spioenkop Dam doesn’t have sluice gates, but rather a sleeve valve which has to be manually opened for water to be released.At the beginning of the year, on January 1, the water level was sitting at 52.8%. The current level, which was checked this morning (January 24), shows the dam to be 62% full. That means the water level has picked up close to 10% in about three weeks.The level of the dam is checked on a daily basis. The dam isn’t full, but the rain that has fallen has helped tremendously. If rain continues to fall, the water level in the dam will continue to rise.Breathing a sigh of relief could be premature, but matters are certainly looking up when it comes to the town’s water affairs!DID YOU KNOW?Click on the words highlighted in red to read more on this and related topics.If you are reading this on your cellphone and there are telephone numbers provided in the text, you can call these simply by clicking on them.To receive news links via WhatsApp.For the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
