first_img Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Facebook Advertisement I’ll be completely honest, when you watch as much television as I do there are few moments that really surprise me or take my breath away. A lot of times, those surprising moments come in the form of shocking character deaths or some unexpected twist that spells all kinds of trouble and tragedy for a beloved character. Very rarely do those surprise moments come in the form of a happy, tender moment that truly touches my heart and makes me smile from ear to ear. Those kind of moments? Well, those are even more rare and more special and that’s exactly what Dan Levy and Schitt’s Creek delivered in this week’s episode, “The Gesture.”After having their first major rift, in which David (Levy) found out that his boyfriend Patrick (Noah Reid) had still been in touch with his ex-fiancee, Patrick had been trying for a week to smooth things over. Part of his plan was to send David gifts every day to try and show him how much he was invested in the relationship. David being David, kept Patrick in his state of misery a tad longer than necessary just so he could keep getting gifts. Naturally, when Patrick found this out he was a little upset. You see, he had been extending David these olive branches each day and now he wanted one extended in return that showed David wasn’t just in this relationship for the gifts.

first_imgAnushka Shetty and Madhavan’s next film Silence aka Nishabdam launched.PR HandoutAfter working in two big projects in the form of Baahubali series and Bhaagamathie, Anushka Shetty had taken a break from the films. Now, the actress has returned to full-fledged acting with Madhavan-starrer Silence, which is launched on Friday, 24 May. The team had a formal pooja to mark the commencement of the shooting in Seattle in the US.Anushka Shetty has teamed up with Madhavan after a gap of more than 10 years. They had paired up in Sundar C’s Rendu, which was the debut film of the actress in Tamil. The latest flick also has Hollywood star Michael Madsen, Anjali and Shalini Pandey in the important roles.It is a multilingual movie which will release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages. Silence, which is titled as Nishabdam in Telugu, will be majorly shot in the US.”My first day first shot of #Nishabdam #silence @ActorMadhavan #AnushkaShetty @yoursanjali @actorsubbaraju @ishalinipandey #avasaralasrinivas. [sic]” the director shared his excitement on Twitter about the first day shoot.It is said to be a silent film in which Anushka Shetty will be seen as an NRI businesswoman. As per the rumours, she is a deaf and dumb in the multilingual flick. Hemant Madhukar of 125 KM and Vastadu Naa Raju fame is directing the film which is funded by People Media Factory.The makers have plans to release in multiple languages in 2020. Anushka ShettyTwitterComing back to Anushka, she was missing in action after the Baahubali series and Bhaagamathie. The actress has kept herself out of limelight for the reasons best known to her. Although Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy marks her official comeback, she is not doing a full-fledged role in the mega-budget film.Hence, Silence will be sort of a comeback film for her.last_img read more


first_imgDonald TrumpUS president Donald Trump said Monday that a bomb attack by a 27-year-old from Bangladesh on New York’s subway system underscored the “urgent need” for Congress to enact immigration reform.Three people were slightly injured after the attacker’s pipe bomb exploded only partially, while the suspect was sent to a hospital with apparently severe burns and wounds on his torso and hands.“First and foremost, as I have been saying since I first announced my candidacy for president, America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people to access our country,” Trump said in a statement.He added that the suspect, identified as Akayed Ullah, had entered the country through “extended-family chain migration,” a system the president is seeking to end that allows families to sponsor relatives to come to the United States.He also cited his controversial travel ban on the entry of nationals from eight countries-six of which have Muslim majorities-as “one step forward in securing our immigration system.”Other measures Trump said he hoped Congress would pass included “increasing the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, enhancing the arrest and detention authorities for immigration officers, and ending fraud and abuse in our immigration system.”Trump also reiterated his call for terror convicts to receive “the strongest penalty allowed by law, including the death penalty.”He had previously called for the death penalty for Sayfullo Saipov, an immigrant from Uzbekistan who killed eight people and injured 12 in an 31 October truck attack in New York.last_img read more


first_imgA space elevator would extend 22,000 miles above the Earth to a station, and then another 40,000 miles to a weighted structure for stability. And a space elevator – if it ever becomes reality – will be quite long. NASA needs about 144,000 miles of nanotube to build one. In theory, a cable would extend 22,000 miles above the Earth to a station, which is the distance at which satellites remain in geostationary orbit. Due to the competing forces of the Earth’s gravity and outward centrifugal pull, the elevator station would remain at that distance like a satellite. Then the cable would extend another 40,000 miles into space to a weighted structure for stability. An elevator car would be attached to the nanotube cable and powered into space along the track.NASA and its partner, the Spaceward Foundation, hope that a space elevator could serve as a cost-effective and relatively clean mode of space transportation. NASA’s current shuttle fleet is set to retire in 2010, and the organization doesn’t have enough funds to replace it until 2014 at the earliest. To fill the gap, NASA is hiring out shuttles to provide transportation to the International Space Station from private companies. So NASA could use a space elevator, the sooner the better. Space elevators could lift material at just one-fifth the cost of a rocket, since most of a rocket’s energy is used simply to escape Earth’s gravity. Not only could a space elevator offer research expeditions for astronauts, the technology could also expand the possibilities for space tourism and even space colonization.Currently, the Cambridge team can make about 1 gram of the new carbon material per day, which can stretch to 18 miles in length. Alan Windle, professor of materials science at Cambridge, says that industrial-level production would be required to manufacture NASA’s request for 144,000 miles of nanotube. Nevertheless, the web-like nanotube material is promising.”The key thing is that the process essentially makes carbon into smoke, but because the smoke particles are long thin nanotubes, they entangle and hold hands,” Windle said. “We are actually making elastic smoke, which we can then wind up into a fiber.”Windle and his colleagues presented their results last month at a conference in Luxembourg, which attracted hundreds of attendees from groups such as NASA and the European Space Agency. John Winter of EuroSpaceward, which organized the conference, thought the new material was a significant step.”The biggest problem has always been finding a material that is strong enough and lightweight enough to stretch tens of thousands of miles into space,” said Winter. “This isn’t going to happen probably for the next decade at least, but in theory this is now possible. The advances in materials for the tether are very exciting.”via: Times Online and Gizmodo© 2009 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

Motivated by a $4 million prize from NASA, the scientists found a way to combine multiple separate nanotubes together to form long strands. Until now, carbon nanotubes have been too brittle to be formed into such long pieces.last_img read more


first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 5 min read Author Dave Eggers scared millions with The Circle, his tale of AI-driven surveillance that’s since become a movie starring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. And why not? Decades of science fiction have trained us to believe machines will eventually replace humans in everything — even when it comes to marketing.Related: 10 Ways to Use Chatbots for Marketing and SalesThere is some basis for this belief. Machines have already replaced some learnings to make marketing more efficient. For example, online algorithms like the ones used in Google ads have made it easier to determine purchase intent and predict when prospects are ready to buy. Machines are brilliant at processing data that represents purchase signals. But, what they miss is context about buyers’ existing brand perceptions and the motivations behind their purchase decisions.Context: The key to creating meaningful brand experiencesAnything that informs motivations is context. Let me give you a personal example. I may be searching for signs of a failing hard drive or for good deals on a lightweight PC. To Google, these searches will likely signal that I’m in the market for a computer. What sort of computer will it choose to show in an ad?Maybe Google knows I’m in marketing, I work at a tech company and I live in a creative hub — Austin, Texas — all of which might increase the odds of me being in the market for a Mac. What kind of Mac, though? A check of my search history likely reveals I frequently hunt for good airfares when traveling for business, which leads Google to present me with travel-friendly laptop options.A new, souped-up MacBook sounds great … for just about anyone else but me. I’ve just never been an Apple guy; my brand loyalties lie elsewhere, which is crucial context when presenting me with an offer. Despite the purchase signals I was sending, my brand preferences were overlooked and the ad was essentially a waste of time. So, how can we expect AI technology to create and execute a full marketing campaign if today’s algorithms aren’t even equipped to display an effective ad?Related: AI Is Taking the Art Out of SalesThe challenge for marketers: Injecting context, interpreting dataThat doesn’t mean machines that process data and interpret buying signals are unimportant. But, they still lack context about buyers’ existing brand perceptions and whether or not those perceptions can be influenced. They also lack the ability to define what experiences should be created to reach buyers that are receptive to your message.Sure, machines can provide data to help marketers find prospects that might be in the market for their product. They can also help inform micro-decisions to more efficiently run and promote campaigns. But, they’re not equipped to create personalized brand experiences that can grab your attention.To effectively reach and engage buyers, an understanding of their current perceptions and past experiences with your brand is required. That’s why the creative exercise of developing impactful experiences that take prospects further down the funnel, from awareness to consideration, is still better informed by marketers than machines.Related: Chatbots Can Help Your Team But They Can’t Replace Your TeamArtificial intelligence for a data-driven futureBut, if you think about it, context is just another layer of data so there could be a future where machines expand their algorithms to better understand how customers and prospects perceive brands and consume experiences.For example, let’s say you’re launching a new brand campaign to reaffirm your commitment to customers. Using a model that examines certain behaviors, such as browsing history, Google searches, social media interests and more, AI technology might be able to tell you which customers are more likely to jump ship to a competitor and need a little more attention. But, what experiences should be created to effectively reach the customers at risk? That question should still be answered by a human being.Plus, the privacy implications for harnessing this sort of data for AI are vast. Look at Facebook for example. What if my likes and dislikes, and the time and place I clicked on content that interests me, were made public? What if my friends that share my interests were made public as well? Suddenly, machines would be infused with an extra layer of context — context provided by the personal elements of my life.Related: Survey Finds Marketers Know All the Important Tech Trends But Aren’t Prepared for Any of ThemBut, I might not like that, and it may encourage me to share a manufactured or curated version of myself while hiding the parts I want to remain secret. Or, I may choose to stop sharing anything at all.All of which brings us back to the human experience. Machines are capable of ingesting and processing and making some limited meaning out of more data today than ever before. That’s good, but it may not get us as any closer to our customers.Why? Because data and signals are nothing without context, and context is informed by our existing perceptions and motivations that can be easily hidden. Until AI can perfectly replicate the artful act of human engagement and then make educated decisions about tapping into those motivations, marketers will not be replaced. Today’s machines can’t do all that, and it’ll likely to be years, or even decades, before they can.Related Video: The Only Online Marketing Metric That Actually Matters Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
