IF YOU HEAR the name ‘Dracula’, you probably picture a tall, lean man, with slicked-back dark hair and ghostly complexion, clad in a cape.The popular image of the character is one that has been created through the work of people like Bela Lugosi, but of course Dracula was first born in Dublin, created in 1897 by Irish author Bram Stoker.This weekend will see the Bram Stoker Festival taking place in Dublin, celebrating all things vampiric.Dracula obsessionAuthor and journalist Kim Newman grew up obsessed with Dracula, first becoming intrigued when he saw the 1931 Bela Lugosi movie Dracula as a child, and today writes the Anno Dracula series of books.This weekend, he has curated a series of Dracula movies for Stoker on the Square in Dublin. The event isn’t just aimed at Dracula obsessives, and there are even a few films selected for children.Why does he think Dracula is such an enduring character?“Of all the monsters I can see why Dracula is the most often done, because there’s the most possible variations,” said Newman.A werewolf doesn’t really have any choice – he’s just an animal. Whereas Dracula, you have a sense he’s made a decision to be, which is scary. He’s also chatty, you can talk to him. He’s got a dress style, he’s got a castle – that’s good. He’s got modus operandi, big plans. He’s sort of a formidable baddie.Dracula the book wasn’t an instant bestseller.“It didn’t really take off as a book until Stoker was dead,” pointed out Newman. “It was adapted for the stage in the 1920s, it was big in the West End of London and Bela Lugosi brought it to Broadway. Then touring companies took it all over the place and it was a really popular stage show, and then that was made into a movie.”It wasn’t until Nosferatu that Dracula the book really took off, said Newman. “When Bram Stoker died, his obituaries barely mentioned he was a novelist,” he added.Because Dracula was the first big horror film of the ‘talkies’ era, “it was like before Dracula there wasn’t such thing as a horror film, and afterwards there was,” said Newman.It sparked a spate of horror releases – like Frankenstein and the Mummy. “All the other studios said ‘get me a film like Dracula’…”The image of Bela Lugosi, with glowing eyes, and widows peak, “became what Dracula looked like”.“That meant that Dracula escaped from the book and then became something you could do [something with] Dracula stories that didn’t even refer to the book.”Newman began to write books featuring Dracula as he “felt that it was open source by now”, but says in some ways he wanted to bring it back to Stoker.“I wanted to make him a bastard again, I wanted to make him really evil, but also in a world where there are lot of vampires I wanted to make sure he was the worst one,” laughed Newman.There is much folklore around the idea of vampires – including obsessive counting, which perhaps unintentionally echoes the Count in Sesame St. “If vampire is chasing you, you can save yourself by throwing pumpkin seeds on the ground and he will be compelled to stop and count them.”Dracula’s legacy(oldhollywoodtrailers/YouTube)While Newman finds Stoker an interesting man, he said: “He’s not a great writer, but he wrote a great book.”“Stoker didn’t seem to have any sense of his own influence,” said Newman. “I don’t know what he would think of Dracula movies. He did want to adapt it to the stage, and did a rough script.”Today, a world without imaginary vampires is hard to fathom, particularly given the success of tween movies and books like Twilight.Newman suspects Stoker would be astonished at his own success, and says there is room “for sparkly romantic vampires”.It’s not what I would pick, it’s not what I would write. But no, I think there’s room from the Count of Sesame St, Blackula – all the other versions I’m happy to live with.For Stoker on the Square, Newman has selected: Dracula (1931), The Brides of Dracula (1960), Blood for Dracula (1974), Dracula Pages from a Virgin’s Diary (2002), The Monster Squad (1987), and Hotel Transylvania (2012).Stoker on the Square will be screened at Meeting House Square from 26 to 28 October.

A gray whale surfaces. 18 Comments Image: AP/Press Association Images Saturday 29 Oct 2016, 10:00 AM By AFP BETWEEN EXPLOSIVE DIPLOMATIC quarrels and pressing animal welfare concerns, world whaling talks came up against an unusual challenge this week, that of “stinky whales”.Experts and concerned parties wryly concede the problem is “weird”, but are quick to point out that for the people of Chukotka in Russia’s Far East, it is no laughing matter.The Chukchi community relies on gray whale meat for their survival.The problem is that in recent years some gray whales have developed a distinct chemical whiff that renders them inedible.“Even the dogs don’t eat this meat,” Valentin Ilyashenko, Russia’s deputy commissioner to the International Whaling Commission (IWC), told AFP at a commission meeting in Portoroz, Slovenia, on Wednesday.Russia asked the commission for a provision by which “stinky whales” can be excluded from the indigenous Chukchi people’s annual count of landed whales.The Chukchi receive a quota from the IWC for hunting gray whales, of which they landed 124 in 2014, according to IWC records.On average, about two or three “stinky whales” are landed per year, said Ilyashenko — one year there were ten in all.“It has a medical smell, like iodine,” he explained. “When you enter a pharmacy for example, but it’s of course stronger. Unnatural.”Sometimes the meat does not smell immediately, but only once it is boiled.Nobody knows why “The result of consumption of stinky whale meat is loss of feeling in the mouth, allergies and diarrhoea. But that doesn’t happen to everyone,” the Russian envoy said.According to Caterina Fortuna, chairwoman of the IWC’s scientific committee: “honestly, nobody knows exactly why (it’s happening)”.“It seems clearly to be a chemical problem, but nobody knows what kind of… compound causes this odour,” she said.Gray whales are listed as a species of “least concern” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, which keeps a “Red List” of animals at threat.Like all whales, the species is protected under a 30-year-old IWC moratorium on all but aboriginal subsistence and scientific hunts.Numbers have largely recovered after severe depletion by hunters in the 20th century.The Chukchi may take up to 140 gray whales, which can grow to 15 metres (50 feet) and weigh as much as 35 tonnes, every year.“The Russian Federation (has) a problem because these whales which stink, they are inedible,” said Fortuna.“These are whales which are taken as part of the quota, and if they are inedible clearly they cannot be ‘landed’,” on the record books.It’s a problem for them in terms of distributing meat in the villages there.Bottom feeders According to conservation group WWF, gray whales are primarily bottom feeders, filtering their food from ocean water through special “bristly” structures in their mouths.They stay close to the shore and feed in shallow waters.Ilyashenko said Chukchi whale hunters have learnt to identify “stinky whales” from afar — their unappetising whiff can sometimes be caught downwind when the massive mammals blow out air.But it is not always possible, and sometimes the offending funk is only discovered after the whale is killed and brought to shore.“The Chukotka hunters say that there are about 10% of such whales in the sea,” the Russian said.The IWC was asked to instruct its scientific committee to investigate the origins of the foulness, and for “stinky whales” not to be counted towards the Chukchi’s tally of landed whales.Several rounds of lab tests failed to identify the cause.Some seals, walruses and birds in the region, said Ilyashenko, “have the same problem. They are also stinky”.© – AFP 2016Read: Danny Healy-Rae says holes in the ozone layer were caused by ‘nuclear testing in the Pacific Ocean’ > Short URL 18,601 Views http://jrnl.ie/3049373 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Oct 29th 2016, 10:00 AM A gray whale surfaces.

50 Attorneys General Launch Bipartisan Probe Into GoogleYouTube Fined $170M For Alleged Child Privacy Law Violation For April Fool’s this year, Google Maps is serving a dose of ’90s nostalgia — in the form of the OG arcade game Snake (with a twist, of course).Starting today, users can play a Google Maps version of the snake game (the snake is now a train!) in different locations across the world — including Cairo, London, San Francisco, São Paulo, Sydney and Tokyo – right from the app.To start playing, simply open the Google Maps app, tap on the menu icon on the top left corner, then select “Play Snake.” (You can play on your desktop by going to the standalone site).Video Playerhttps://www.geek.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/ezgif.com-gif-to-mp4.mp400:0000:0000:15Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Once you’ve selected a city, start picking up as many passengers as you can as your train travels around the world — stopping everywhere from Big Ben, the Great Sphinx of Giza to the Eiffel Tower.You control the train by using the arrow keys on your keyboard. The goal is to pick up passengers for your train, as each passenger you pick up makes your train longer, which also makes it a bit harder to maneuver on the screen.Snake on Google Maps starts rolling out worldwide on Android and iOS today, and will be live in the app for about a week, according to a post on the Google Blog.More on Geek.com:Google Will Now Take You to ‘Mars on Earth’Google’s Bach Doodle Shows Computers Are Great ComposersStadia Is Google’s New Video Game Streaming Platform Stay on target

Manchester United legends Ryan Giggs and Bryan Robson have spoken out in support of coach Jose MourinhoFollowing the Red Devils’ shocking 3-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night, speculation surrounding Mourinho’s future at Old Trafford has intensified.Two losses in their opening three Premier League games marks United’s worst start in 26 years.Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is being tipped to replace Mourinho with latest reports indicating that the Portuguese only has one more game left to prove himself.But Giggs has given Mourinho his backing.“I was there on Monday as a United fan,” Giggs said on MEN.Vidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“It’s time for the fans to stick together, get behind the club, team and manager. It’s a tough time but we’ve had tough times before and got through it.”Former United captain Robson feels that the club supporters must get behind Mourinho.“It’s too easy. The minority of fans in clubs will be asking for the manager’s head after a few bad results and it’s often they speak the loudest,” he said.“The track record that Jose has holds up. After three games, you don’t talk about sacking the manager, you encourage and back him.”United will look to get back to winning ways away to Burnley on Sunday.
It’s still early days with publishers and advertisers creating original, rich content on tablets like Apple’s iPad, but Condé Nast is attempting to identify some best practices for advertisers in terms of content that’s engaging and resonates with the user. To come up with these best practices, the big consumer publisher conducted more than 100 hours of one-on-one interviews and 5,000 in-app surveys based on user experiences with the GQ, Vanity Fair, Wired and Glamour apps.Based on its findings, Condé Nast’s five recommendations are: to take advantage of functionality, to provide clear instructions on how users should engage with an app, to supply additional information but avoid repurposing creative assets used for other media, to remember to tell a story and to lead users “down the purchase funnel.” Survey respondents indicated that they responded positively to the additional functionality of the iPad. With that in mind, Condé Nast suggests that advertisers include “compelling and unique experiences” with video, photo galleries and links to Web sites—especially links that enable users to directly purchase the featured product.Navigation also is a big issue. The publisher says ads that included “clear calls to action and cues on how to engage the creative” were more effective among users who participated in its survey. Icons “should be clearly visible and intuitive and state whether more content or additional functionality can be found.” Condé Nast also noted that users preferred to read the magazines in portrait mode, but to watch video in landscape. Not surprising, the publisher said there also was an expectation among users for flexibility in buying options, including a single copy purchase, a digital subscription or supplement to their print subscription.And, in a nod to its own magazine apps, Condé Nast says 80 percent of respondents indicated that the content and experience associated with the apps met or surpassed their expectations. Eighty-three percent reported a “likelihood to purchase the next month’s digital issue.”
But the site’s not as idyllic as it looks.Novosibirsk Maldives’ postcard-worthy shade comes from its chemical composition — ashes as deep as 6.5 feet (2 meters) and metal oxides dissolved in the water, the company said. The ashes resulting from burning coal at the station are mixed with water and enter the ash dump through pipes.”This is NOT a natural lake,” SGK stressed in its statement. “This is … a hydraulic structure.” Looking at photos of the shimmering turquoise lake that stars in Instagram accounts like maldives_nsk and sup_novosibirsk, you might assume you’re seeing vacation-goers in the Carribean. You’d be wrong.They’re standing next to a toxic dump in Novosibirsk, a city in Siberia. And the local coal plant that pumps waste into the human-made pond wants people taking selfies there to know it.”You can not swim in the ash dump,” Siberian Generating Company (SGK) wrote in a translated statement posted to Russia social network VKontakteon. “Skin contact with such water may cause an allergic reaction!”Many of the photos at the lake dubbed Novosibirsk Maldives feature smiling people canoeing or paddle-boarding through water swirled in jewel-toned blues and greens. Sunbathers on the shore pose in bathing suits and shorts and do yoga poses. Couples hold hands and kiss. Instagram HBO Chernobyl creator asks tourists to the site to show respect Sorry, daters, New York bill endangers your ‘tiger selfies’ Pokemon No: All the ways you shouldn’t play the popular app 4 Share your voice Tags The company also warned that the bottom of that structure is so muddy it’s “almost impossible” to get out.Though SGK posted its warnings online a month ago, and a few signs around the area alert visitors of the water’s dangers as well, pictures snapped at Novosibirsk Maldives continue to populate Instagram.This isn’t, of course, the first time Instagrammers eager for a perfect selfie shot have been warned about taking photos in dangerous or awkward places. They’ve been told not to take risky “tiger selfies” and to be respectful at the site where the Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred. And they’ve been reminded that maybe, just maybe, funerals aren’t the most appropriate place to take vanity shots. Watch where you’re going Comments Sci-Tech Online
Reuters fileTaking the sale of the loss-making Air India one step further, the Narendra Modi government is looking to open 100 per cent stake of the airline carrier and completely exit the sell-off process.While the government has made this decision, a panel of ministers will have the final in say in the government’s involvement in the sell-off process. The government had earlier started the process but was met with a poor and unfavourable response.The government had recently restarted the process and bid to sell the entire stake. Niti Aayog had suggested the option during the first sell-off process but the government had put 75 per cent of the stake on sale.”A general feeling (in the government) is that if people want to have full (control), let them have it. But I will be able to tell you only when a specific decision is taken. My personal view is that I do not see any conflict for the government,” Atanu Chakraborty, the secretary of the department of investment and public asset management (DIPAM), was quoted as saying by The Times of India.The government is looking to close the deal by the end of 2019 and Chakraborty is confident that the sale will be quick because most of the paperwork has already been done during the previous attempt.To make the sale smooth sailing, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that she will review the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the aviation sector and see if their stake can increase. Through FDI, foreign carriers can currently own up to 49 per cent of shares.”My understanding is that FDI in aviation is 100 per cent. The cap is again on substantial ownership and effective control (SOEC) guidelines, which is 49 per cent and certain directorships. The second cap is on Air India as a nationally owned carrier. Once it is not nationally owned it will go through 100 per cent so that’s a signal in the budget. SOEC is much more complicated because there is some reciprocity, there are a lot of issues involved that the budget does not mention. That’s an issue which needs to be grappled with,” Chakraborty said.

Related posts:The New York Times calls for marijuana legalization Drug policy in Central America criminalizes poverty, says Costa Rica Public Security Minister Colombia president supports allowing medical marijuana 92 percent of California patients say medical marijuana works Opponents of marijuana legalization are rapidly losing the battle for hearts and minds. Simply put, the public understands that however you measure the consequences of marijuana use, the drug is significantly less harmful to users and society than tobacco or alcohol.But opponents still have one trick up their sleeves, and it’s proven to be a powerful and effective one: the notion that relaxed regulations on marijuana will lead to a rise in marijuana use among children and teens. In the United States, Florida voters, for instance, will decide whether to legalize medical marijuana this November. Organizations opposing the measure have built their campaigns around fears about underage use.The group Don’t Let Florida Go To Pot greets visitors to its Web site with a warning that medical marijuana will turn your child into a hoodie-wearing, pot-smoking thug.Vote No On 2 features another hoodie-clad youngster on its home page, no doubt contemplating the depravity of his existence after medical marijuana. Florida voters don’t seem to be buying any of this, though: Medical marijuana currently enjoys nearly 90 percent support in the state (emphasis ours).More to the point, the notion that medical marijuana leads to increased use among teenagers is flat-out wrong. A new study by economists Daniel Rees, Benjamin Hansen and D. Mark Anderson is the latest in a growing body of research showing no connection — none, zero, zilch — between the enactment of medical marijuana laws and underage use of the drug.The authors examined marijuana trends in U.S. states that passed medical marijuana laws. They tracked self-reported pot use by high school students in the years leading up to and following the enactment of these laws. They conclude that the effects of medical marijuana on teen use are “small, consistently negative, and never statistically distinguishable from zero.”I asked study co-author Daniel Rees if there were any significant changes within individual states. He told me that “no single state stood out — the effect of massing a medical marijuana law on youth consumption appears to be zero across the board.” These results are consistent with earlier research showing little change in youth pot consumption in Los Angeles after marijuana dispensaries opened there.There’s little doubt that, like alcohol or tobacco, marijuana use can be harmful to teens, particularly to heavy users. But this paper, like others before it, provides straightforward evidence that there is no link between medical marijuana laws and teen marijuana use. Facebook Comments
