first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – It may have been a lousy night for Madonna at the MTV Video Music Awards, but the event offered some glimmers of hope for the network.The Nielsen company estimated that 5.23 million watched Monday’s annual tribute to what’s current in popular music across several Viacom-owned networks. While that’s down from the 5.68 million who watched last year, the network appears to have slowed the show’s rapid decline over the past years while showing increases in digital engagement.MTV estimated that there had been some 141.6 million video streams of content related to the awards show for the past month — including Monday night — up from 76 million a year ago. MTV said it doesn’t have an estimate of how many people streamed Monday’s entire show through the network’s app.Those numbers hold a greater importance for the younger viewers that MTV seeks, considering how many people experience “television” now on their devices.Among viewers aged 18 to 34, MTV topped all other cable and broadcast numbers for the period of time that the VMAs were on, Nielsen said.Television ratings for the awards show have been shrinking rapidly in recent years. In 2015, for example, 9.8 million watched on television. In 2011, when Katy Perry was the big winner, the show had a record viewership of 12.4 million people.MTV moved the event from Sunday to Monday this year, which is generally a better night for the network, and closer to the middle of August so there would be less competition.The show had its moments, including a glittery Jennifer Lopez medley. Madonna received a harsh reaction for telling a story about the late Aretha Franklin that had more to do with her than the late Queen of Soul.The event as a whole, however, was lacking in star power, with Drake, Bruno Mars, Childish Gambino, Beyonce, Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar among the missing. If MTV can prove that it has arrested the event’s decline, it may make stars more willing to show up in the future.With a double shot of its most popular show, “America’s Got Talent,” NBC won the week in prime-time, averaging 4.4 million viewers. CBS had 3.6 million viewers, ABC had 3.2 million, Fox had 1.6 mullion, ION Television had 1.4 million, Telemundo had 1.2 million, Univision had 1.1 million and the CW had 800,000.Viewers continue to find other things to do. Prime-time ratings for the four biggest networks were down by 13 per cent compared to the same week last year. Two of the three cable news networks had better ratings than the Fox network.Fox News Channel was the week’s most popular cable network, averaging 2.24 million viewers in prime time, MSNBC had 1.78 million viewers, HGTV had 1.35 million, USA had 1.34 million and ESPN had 1.26 million.ABC’s “World News Tonight” led the evening newscasts with an average of 8 million viewers. NBC’s “Nightly News” was second with 7.4 million viewers and the “CBS Evening News” had 5.6 million.For the week of Aug. 13-19, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: “America’s Got Talent” (Tuesday), NBC, 11.14 million; “America’s Got Talent” (Wednesday), NBC, 9.86 million; “60 Minutes,” CBS, 6.29 million; “Big Brother” (Wednesday), CBS, 5.83 million; “Big Brother” (Sunday), CBS, 5.8 million; “Big Brother” (Thursday), CBS, 5.73 million; “The Big Bang Theory,” CBS, 5.51 million; “NCIS,” CBS, 5.4 million; “World of Dance,” NBC, 5.13 million; “American Ninja Warrior,” NBC, 5.08 million.___ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.

Meanwhile the Defence Ministry said that acting on a court order the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) officials, yesterday sealed the Sri Lanka Mirror office where two websites involved in propagating false and unethical news on Sri Lanka were being operated from. “We have raised on several occasions our deep concern over efforts to suppress independent news media, including the blocking of news websites, intimidation, and disappearances of journalists,” the Embassy said.The United States believes that an uncensored and independent media available to all citizens is an indispensable part of any vibrant democracy and we call for an end to the harassment of these and all other journalists. read more

MONUC, said it has been carrying out information programmes to convince the ex-FAR-Interahamwe rebels to return home voluntarily and has been deploying UN peacekeeping troops in DRC’s eastern Kivu region, bordering Rwanda.Rwanda’s Hutu extremist militias, blamed for the genocide of Rwandan Tutsis and moderate Hutus in 1994, fled across the border to mineral-rich DRC, which was then embroiled in its own civil war.After ceasefire accords ended DRC’s civil strife, Rwanda withdrew its troops, but in July a UN expert group found that it was supporting dissident Congolese Tutsi, or Banyamulenge, military leaders in eastern DRC and directly and indirectly had violated the weapons embargo against the militias.MONUC reminded the Rwandan Government that it had agreed, along with DRC and Uganda – at a meeting last month held under United States auspices – to respect one another’s sovereignty and to end the problems created by the rebels.The 20 November Declaration of Dar-es-Salaam also bound the signatories to work towards stabilizing and pacifying the Great Lakes region, MONUC said.The Mission also recalled that it has Security Council authorization “to employ every means necessary, within its capacity and in its units’ zones of deployment, to fulfil its mandate, which includes protecting civilians facing imminent threats of physical violence.” read more

Mr Maddox has now replaced the car with another Corsa, but in a less vibrant grey colour, which blends into the background better.Mr Maddox, who moved to Bibury 15 years ago after his wife died, said: “It’s not as good as the yellow car, but it’s lovely to drive.”Hopefully I won’t have any trouble with it, although I never intended to cause a problem with the yellow one.” Photographers and tourists accused him of ruining the picture-postcard setting of medieval Arlington Row in Bibury, Gloucestershire, which is featured inside UK passports.Feelings ran so high that the car was written off by vandals who scrawled “Move” on the bonnet and caused £6,000 in damage.

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Australia should encourage “advanced manufacturing” and look to gas as the “key to manufacturing” said Andrew Liveris, Dow Chemical’s global president and co-chairman of Barack Obama’s Advanced Manufacturing Partnership. The Greek Australian launched his plan The Dow Chemical Company Advanced Manufacturing Plan for Australia in Sydney at the Future of Manufacturing in Australia conference to give Australia the tools it needs to become a global manufacturing player. His plan states that Australia needs to create the right environment for manufacturing that is export-competitive, dependent on innovation and that includes partnerships with researchers, government and other firms. He said Australia must increase investment in innovation.Mr Liveris pinpointed Australia’s gas fields as a way Australia can keep the manufacturing sector competitive and the plan stated that gas producers should reserve a big share of new gas fields for domestic use. He warned that carbon tax and renewable energy targets would damage competitiveness.“Australia has all the building blocks of a global leader, including vast quantitiy of natural resources [and] a highly skilled, talented workforce,” said Mr Liveris. He said Australia should aim at changing policies to aim for a “balanced, sustainable economy that adds value to resources”.In 2010, Mr Liveris was given the oldest honour in Christendom and the highest honour a lay person can receive in the Orthodox Christian Church by being named Archon by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of the Orthodox Christian Church.“I am thrilled, honored and humbled to have been given this recognition,” said Mr Liveris. “The title carries with it an awesome responsibility and serves as a reminder that religious freedom must be supported at all costs to ensure the continuation of our rich and beautiful 2000 year old Christian Faith.”last_img read more

first_imgWith the Hellenism of the diaspora being demographically almost half Greece’s population, the Secretariat General for Greeks Abroad, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, have been cooperating closely for years to ensure that the Greek diaspora remains connected and the ties with the motherland strong.For the first time after a five year long break due to the economic struggles of Greece, annual summer camps, for children of the Greek diaspora to get a first-hand experience of the country of their ancestry, will begin again this year. The camps are hosted in Malesina, Fthiotida and in Epanomi, outside of Thessaloniki.The camping program has often been praised as one of the most successful programs run in the more than 30 year history of the Greek Secretariat for Greeks Abroad, supervised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It was thanks to these summer camps that tens of thousands of children of Greek ancestry from all over the globe have visited Greece, including numerous Greek Australians.The General Consulate of Greece in Sydney has now invited teachers and parents of children of Greek origin from New South Wales, between 9-13 years old, to participate in 2014 summer camps.A group of nine children from NSW will be selected, based on the criteria that one of the parents is of Greek origin, the applicant is 9-13 years old, and that parents are not employees of the Greek State abroad.Alongside their application forms and other required documents, the applicants can also include a certificate that the child is attending Greek language lessons, a certificate by Greek Associations that the child participates in activities relevant to Greek culture or a reference for good or excellent grades in the Greek language.Children who are close to the age of 13 will be prioritised, as they won’t have the chance to participate in the future.Based on the expression of interest for the last summer camp, in 2008, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth have been allocated two positions each, while nine positions will be available for applicants in both Melbourne and Sydney.This year, the participants from Australia will take part in the summer camp in Malesina. The expenses of the camping program are covered by the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad. The GCSA will also be responsible for the children’s transportation from the airport of Athens or Thessaloniki to the camps, while the flight costs to and from Greece will be covered by the parents.The camps, specially designed for the needs of children of the Greek diaspora and featuring lessons of Greek language and history, excursions and visits to historical and archeological locations, will be held from 15 to 29 July 2014, in Epanomi, outside of Thessaloniki, and from 7 until 21 August 2014 in Malesina, Fthiotida.The deadline for applications for the Epanomi summer camp is 11 April, and 15 April for Malesina summer camp.The Education office in Sydney is only responsible for NSW applications. Information for any other state’s program can be requested from the Consulate of Greece in the respective state.For application forms and other required documents, contact your State Consulate.

first_imgBraconnage : un trafiquant de pousse-pieds arrêté en BretagneVictime de la surpêche, le pousse-pied, un crustacé vivant fixé à des rochers le long de la côte-Atlantique, est soumis à des quotas de pêche très stricts depuis plusieurs années. Une interdiction bravée par des braconniers, en Bretagne notamment, où un trafiquant vient d’être interpellé.Samedi, sur la cale de Saint-Guénolé dans le Finistère, les gendarmes maritimes de la patrouille de surveillance du littoral ont découvert un important butin dans le fourgon de trois pêcheurs : quelque 323 kilos de pousse-pieds, rapporte le site de Ouest-France. Une prise record, quand la dernière remontant à plusieurs mois avait atteint 125 kilos, pêchés illégalement par des braconniers espagnols à la pointe du Raz. À lire aussiVoilà à quoi ressemblent les cris de petits rhinocérosAlors que deux des pêcheurs ont réussi à s’enfuir à bord d’un canot pneumatique, le troisième, habitant de Ploemeur dans le Morbihan, a été interpellé.

Pourtant les pousse-pieds arrachés avec des morceaux de roche par les trafiquants au marteau et au burin, ne pourront pas repousser.Négociés entre 20 et 40 euros le kilo en France, et entre 100 et 150 euros en Espagne, les pousse-pieds ont été longtemps victimes de la surpêche avant que des quotas ne soient mis en place pour préserver l’espèce.

first_imgDe vieilles cabines téléphoniques recyclées en bibliothèquesUn projet franco-allemand vise à transformer de vieilles cabines téléphoniques en bibliothèques de rue, libres d’accès. Ces bibliothèques devraient fleurir un peu partout au printemps.Les cabines téléphoniques ont fait leur temps. Avec l’apparition des téléphones portables et leur extraordinaire démocratisation, les anciennes cabines sont désormais à l’abandon. Ainsi, les 290 000 cabines françaises sont vouées à disparaitre à moins que… celles-ci ne deviennent de mini-bibliothèques. En effet, un projet franco-allemand baptisé BücherboXX-BliblioboXX a décidé de recycler et d’aménager de vielles cabines téléphoniques en bibliothèques de rues en libre accès. La Maison de l’Europe des Yvelines et l’Académie de Versailles se sont associées pour s’essayer sur cinq cabines téléphoniques offertes par France-Télécom, rapporte 20minutes.fr.Ces cabines seront transformées par des étudiants des formations professionnelles concernées (ébénistes, métallurgistes, menuisiers, peintres…) dans le cadre des projets visant à promouvoir le développement durable dans les formations préparant aux métiers de la construction.À lire aussi”Spying on whales”, une fascinante odyssée sous-marine à la rencontre des baleines avec Nick PyensonLa première BücherboXX sera inaugurée à l’occasion du 50ème anniversaire du traité de l’Elysée le 18 avril prochain devant l’ambassade de France à Berlin. Si les prototypes remportent un succès suffisant, les Biblioboxx apparaîtront dans les cours d’écoles, des stations de métro ou encore dans des rues. Tout le monde aura la possibilité d’y déposer un livre dont ils souhaitent se débarrasser ou prendre un livre pour le lire. Le recyclage au profit de la Culture, il fallait y penser !

first_img MovieBob Reviews: DUNKIRK (2017) We haven’t seen much of Christopher Nolan’s latest film Dunkirk, but in the first trailer, we see that it’s like many other Nolan titles: dark and suspenseful with a lot of shots of people by the water.The film chronicles the Dunkirk evacuation, sometimes known as the “Miracle of Dunkirk.” After the Battle of Dunkirk, which took place in 1940 after British, Belgian, and French forces were surrounded by German troops, forcing an evacuation. However, Adolf Hitler issued a halt order, allowing 300,000 troops to pull back to Dunkirk.Basically, following Germany’s invasion of Poland and an attack on Belgium and the Netherlands, a series of unfortunate events befell the Allied troops. But in a random sequence of events, mostly focused on Hitler’s halt order, the majority were able to get out.So spoilers for a decades-old historical event, the movie will probably have a hopeful ending, but not without a cost.In the trailer, which you can watch below, we see officers and soldiers trapped and holding their heads as planes drop down overhead. We see dead bodies washing up on shore. At one point, Cillian Murphy shivers as he thinks about heading back into battle.“There’s no hiding from this son,” he’s told. “We have a job to do.”Expect a lot of thoughts on the consequences of war, and on the perseverance of the Allied troops. It’s a World War II epic, possibly in the vain of Saving Private Ryan.Earlier this week, according to our friends at IGN, posters were released for the film, with the tagline “The Event That Shaped Our World.”Dunkirk stars previous Nolan collaborators Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, along with Kenneth Branagh, James D’Arcy, Mark Rylance, and others (see if you can spot One Direction’s Harry Styles).It’ll have a limited release on July 19, 2017 and go into wide release on July 21.

first_imgThe PS Vita is due to launch on February 22 next year across the U.S. and Canada. Many gamers already have their pre-orders made, and now just have a long wait of nearly 5 months.You could get it sooner by importing one from Japan, but I’ve already predicted a $1000 price tag if you do. Sony is offering you a legitimate way to get a PS Vita early, though. Seven whole days early in fact.Announced via the PlayStation.Blog, Sony has decided to offer a PlayStation Vita First Edition Bundle that will launch on February 15. In the U.S. it will include a 3G version of the device along with a 4GB memory card (which is required for some games), a limited edition PS Vita case, and the game Little Deviants. The price is $349.99. In Canada a similar bundle will be offered, but with the WiFi version of the Vita for $299.99.The bundle isn’t any more expensive for being released a week early, and it may be a better way to ensure you secure the machine if demand is high. However, just remember that nothing else launches for a week, so if you really hate the Little Deviants game it’s doubtful you can pick up or download any other games until the 22nd.What’s unclear is how many of these First Edition Bundles Sony is going to make available. The company must be confident on stock levels in order to make the offer in the first place, but there could be a limit of a few thousand before it switches back to separate hardware and game sales for the real launch.Read more at PlayStation.Bloglast_img read more
