Disney Shares Daft Punk-Soundtracked Trailer For New “Wreck It Ralph” Sequel [Watch]

first_imgThis week, Disney shared the official trailer for its upcoming sequel to 2012 animated comedy, Wreck-It Ralph, set to the sounds of “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” by hitmaking French electronic duo, Daft Punk. The sequel, titled Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, follows the title character—an arcade game villain who’s trying to break the cycle and be a hero instead—as he ventures into the great unknown of the Internet. It stars John C. Reilly as Wreck-It Ralph and Sarah Silverman as his sister, Vanellope, and is due out in theaters on November 21st, 2018.The music used in the trailer for Wreck-It Ralph 2 appears to stay in line with the hit EDM-centric soundtrack from the first movie, which featured original music from acts like Skrillex, Owl City, and more, in addition to existing songs from a slew of other popular artists and a score composed by Henry Jackman. The soundtrack for Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. Details regarding the soundtrack for the sequel have yet to be released.In addition to the music, the trailer takes satirical shots at various tropes, from Internet memes, to Disney’s generally-horrible treatment of its princesses in its narratives, to the clumsy title of the film itself. Check out the Daft Punk-soundtracked Wreck-It Ralph 2 trailer below:Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 – Official Trailer[Video: Walt Disney Animation Studios]We haven’t heard much from Daft Punk in the years since their smash hit 2013 album Random Access Memories, aside from a collaboration with The Weeknd on “Starboy” (2016) and subsequent Grammy Awards performance (2017). The pair has contributed to a handful of projects since then, and rumors of upcoming tours have spread on multiple occasions, but none have come to fruition.The film using one of their old songs really doesn’t give much of an indication as to whether Daft Punk is involved with the film’s soundtrack, whether Daft Punk is making music, or anything at all, really. But we’ll allow ourselves the slightest bit of excitement at even just the notion of new Daft Punk by way of Wreck-It Ralph.[H/T Consequence of Sound]last_img read more

Spielberg to speak at 365th Commencement

first_imgSteven Spielberg, one of the most illustrious filmmakers in the history of American motion pictures, will be the featured speaker at the Afternoon Program of Harvard’s 365th Commencement on May 26.“Steven Spielberg is a genre-defying filmmaker whose unparalleled creativity has fueled countless imaginations,” said Harvard President Drew Faust. “An extraordinary storyteller, he has given voice to the silenced and brought history to life. The wonder of ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ and ‘E.T.,’ the suspense of ‘Jaws’ and ‘Jurassic Park,’ the thrill of ‘Indiana Jones’ and ‘Minority Report,’ the power of ‘Saving Private Ryan’ and ‘Schindler’s List,’ the inspiration of ‘Lincoln’ and ‘Amistad’: these unforgettable experiences connect us to one another, entertaining and inspiring us as they underscore what it is to be human.  Through his art, Mr. Spielberg has challenged us to dream and to see the world anew, and I am very much looking forward to welcoming him back to Harvard and to honoring him during our 365th Commencement exercises.”Spielberg has twice won best-director Academy Awards, for “Saving Private Ryan” and “Schindler’s List,” which also won best picture. He has received several career honors, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Directors Guild of America, the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Kennedy Center Honor, and most recently, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.He also has devoted time and energy to philanthropy, establishing the Righteous Persons Foundation with his profits from “Schindler’s List,” and founding the Shoah Visual History Foundation, now the USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education, which has recorded more than 53,000 interviews with Holocaust survivors and witnesses.“Through both his art and his activism, Steven Spielberg has shared with millions his deeply humanistic view of the world,” said Paul L. Choi, president of the Harvard Alumni Association. “Harvard alumni, students, and faculty will be excited at this opportunity to hear from the person behind the works that have entertained and inspired them for decades.”Coming on May 26 <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDKF6a-pKUI” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/fDKF6a-pKUI/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> Credit: Harvard Public Affairs and Communicationslast_img read more

Juggling club offers campus entertainment

first_imgMichael Yu Sean Gleasom of the Notre Dame juggling club demonstrates his juggling skills with tennis balls. The club welcomes students who “wish to advance their juggling skills and those skills associated with juggling, i.e. unicycling,” according to the Student Activities Office website. Club president and junior Steven Brill said 15 to 20 people come to meetings regularly, depending on the time of year. When the weather is cold, the group meets Friday afternoons at the racquetball courts in Rockne Memorial Gym; when it’s warm, they “generally just hang and juggle” by Stonehenge, Brill said.“People like walking by and seeing us,” he said. “Kids are a lot of fun. We were juggling at the outdoor sports festival thing on South Quad that not many people knew about earlier, and a bunch of kids walked by, and the kids loved watching the juggling, so that’s pretty fun.”The club also performs at various events throughout the year — they’ve performed at Holy Cross intramural basketball all-star game and a parade at the Irish Fest of Manhattan, Illinois. On Sunday, they juggled at the unveiling of The Shirt.People join the juggling club with a range of levels of experience — some have only a basic knowledge of the craft and learn through the club, starting with a single ball and going from there.“There are people who will say, ‘Oh, I’ve tried this like once, so I have a little bit of knowledge on how to do it but I haven’t learned how,’” sophomore Mark Kinney said.Others knew how to juggle before coming to Notre Dame and use the club as a way to practice. Sophomore Cate Devey said she learned how to juggle in order to one-up her brothers.“I hate not being able to be better than them at things, so I taught myself how to juggle,” she said.Sophomore Andrea Ringer said she unsuccessfully tried to teach herself with a book but was able to learn eventually.“In high school, I went on a trip, and one of our leaders was in the circus, so he actually taught us how to juggle, and it finally stuck,” Ringer said. “So I learned, and I thought it was really cool, so coming here, I just went to the Juggling Club meeting, and I enjoyed it.”Brill said he and his brother started juggling when he was in fifth grade, and he kept up the hobby through high school, where he was his school’s juggling club president. Before he went to college, he worked for the Cincinnati Circus Company, which performs at events in the city.“I started working there, which made me better at juggling, and then I learned how to do balloon animals and stilt walking and things like that,” Brill said. “Then I came here, and I’ve been pretty outspoken in trying to get people to juggle.”Some members can juggle four or five objects at a time. They use different techniques — there’s the normal Cascade, and there are more complicated patterns like Mill’s Mess, Chops or the 5-3-1. Some can juggle clubs or rings as well as balls. Others, like Brill, have graduated to juggling knives and torches, something the club hopes to use next year.Brill said juggling performances can vary in style — there’s what he calls “strolling juggling,” or walking among the audience while juggling. There are more comedic routines and artsier, more musical performances.Most of the equipment the club uses belongs to Brill, he said, and next year, the group hopes to raise money to buy its own equipment so it can still have a range of gear after Brill graduates. Brill said juggling and the process of learning new techniques is a stress reliever.“I use juggling in between studying; I just leave [my stuff] in my backpack just for fun,” he said. “It’s something fun, and it is a very tangible way to see progress from repetition and see learning, where you start with one trick, and then you can keep learning new ones.”Tags: Juggling Club, North Quad, Stonehenge, The Shirt On warm Friday afternoons, among the hammocks, grill-outs and Frisbee games, the Notre Dame Juggling Club gathers on North Quad with bags of tennis balls, clubs and plastic rings. They put on impromptu juggling performances for passersby and teach anyone who is interested how to juggle.last_img read more

Pipe protection

first_imgBy Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaHomeowners should winterize outdoor pipes soon, and don’t forget about the lawn sprinklers. A few precautions now can save a lot of time and headaches come springtime, says a University of Georgia expert.Winter temperatures dip well below freezing, even in Georgia. It’s simple. When water freezes, it expands. Freezing temperatures can cause the water in a small, exposed pipe to expand. If the water expands too much, the pipe bursts, says Kerry Harrison, an irrigation expert with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.”With home irrigation systems, you wouldn’t know you had any pipe damage, probably, until you turned it on for the first spring watering,” he said.The past few Georgia winters have been relatively mild. This winter, however, is predicted to be a bit cooler, Harrison said.Two-inch freezeMost built-in-ground sprinkler pipes will be OK, because only the top two inches of the ground freezes in most of Georgia. Pipes should be well below this level. Other irrigation components, like backlog prevention valves, are at ground level, though, and could be in danger.If there are any exposed valves or pipes around your home, tape them up or “use a good ol’ sack to wrap them,” Harrison said. Home-improvement stores have many tapes, foams and gadgets to keep these pipes warm on cold, winter nights.The tips of sprinkler heads can hold water. When frozen, they can rupture. The whole sprinkler system holds water, too, even when it isn’t being used, like in the winter. Don’t forget to drain the system, he said. If you don’t drain it properly in the winter, your sprinkler could be a geyser when you turn it on next spring.”Arrangements should have been made in the installation process to have a way to drain those lines that would hold water,” he said.If you’ve bought a home with an installed irrigation system,find this drain valve. Some systems are equipped with automatic drain valves.Manual careDon’t forget about the manual, or “hose-dragger,” systems. You can do two things:* Leave the hoses hanging outside. But disconnect them from faucets.* Disconnect, drain and store hoses someplace with a constant temperature. This will prolong the life of the hoses.Whatever you do, if you leave hoses undrained outside in the winter, don’t move them or touch them. You could be the one to break them. Frozen hoses are fragile, Harrison said.Pump pipesPrivate water users and rural residents with wells should check out their main water pump. There is usually a half-inch pipe connected to the pressure switch. If it’s metal, it probably won’t freeze. If it’s plastic, it might freeze and burst. This could cause the water pump to fail or continue to run and cause some major winter repairs.But if all these precautions fail and a pipe bursts, there’s still one thing to remember. “Know where your main water cutoff is,” Harrison said.Farmers should start preparing irrigation systems for winter weather, too.”Obviously, farmers need to make sure that all of the drain ports have been opened and the water that could be held in that cavity is drained out,” he said.Farmers should check all the wiring in an irrigation system and contact a trained electrician to repair or replace frayed or loose wires during the winter, he said. This can prevent a time-consuming breakdown next spring.last_img read more

NATO Chief Wants Stronger Ties With Partner Countries

first_imgBy Dialogo March 04, 2010 NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen wants the military alliance to strengthen relations with non-member partner countries like Finland and Sweden, he said in an interview published Wednesday. “I am currently preparing reforms to our partnerships, which would make them more dynamic and, therefore, also more significant for the partners,” Rasmussen told Finland’s largest daily Helsingin Sanomat. Ramussen wants relations to become “politically even more significant”, but did not specify NATO’s plans for practical measures to expand cooperation, the paper reported. “I would like to bring political leaders into partnerships more,” said Rasmussen, a former Danish prime minister and took NATO’s top job in August 2009. NATO is currently updating its Strategic Concept to reflect changes in the emphasis of global security challenges — including terrorism, energy supplies and climate change — since the last revision in 1999. As part of this process, it is seeking input from non-member partners, and Rasmussen is due to attend a seminar on the future of NATO crisis management hosted by the Finnish and Swedish prime ministers in Helsinki Thursday. Rasmussen told Helsingin Sanomat that Afghanistan, where Finland and Sweden have soldiers serving under NATO’s peacekeeping operation, was a model example of NATO’s regional defence starting far from the alliance’s borders.last_img read more

Uruguay: “Express Kidnapping”

first_imgBy Dialogo August 10, 2010 Uruguayan society is concerned about a type of crime known as “express kidnapping,” which has burst onto the scene in the country with seven reported cases between the end of June and the beginning of August. Even if “express kidnappings” are habitual in more violent countries in the region, such as Venezuela, Brazil, and Argentina, this type of crime is something new in Uruguay. However, the series of kidnappings in a little more than a month has put the government on a state of alert, and the OAS has even proposed to assist the country by sending Colombian experts to advise the local police. The UN has also offered advice. “Uruguay continues to be an exception in the region with regard to these crimes, and therefore neither the OAS nor the UN wants the situation to deteriorate,” Interior Minister Eduardo Bonomi remarked. The cases reported up to now follow a similar pattern: the crimes are committed by youths who accost their victims when the latter are in a parked a car or about to get into a car. Immediately, the thieves force the victims to drive them to ATM machines or to their residences in order to steal more money and property from them. “It’s a complicated kind of crime, in general, because the kidnapper has not made a study of his victim in order to do this to him. It’s a matter of happenstance. The kidnapper sees an opportunity and takes advantage of it. For this reason, it’s not easy to prevent,” voanoticias.com was told by Fernando Andión, co-director of the Personal-Defense Training Center, an Uruguayan business that offers training in personal safety and protection to both civilians and police and military personnel. Andión said that this type of crime did not use to take place in Uruguay, but criminals quickly realized that it is an effective formula for committing robbery without getting caught. Nevertheless, he emphasized that unlike in Brazil and Argentina – Uruguay’s neighbors –, these kidnappers are not part of organized gangs. “We’re very far from the levels of violence that exist in other countries in the world and in the region,” he affirmed. “Technically speaking, violence has increased very little in Uruguay in the last three years, perhaps more in the last ten years, but now these are things that are talked about more, and people are realizing that Uruguay is not the country it was ten years ago.” The personal-safety expert acknowledged, nonetheless, that “we’re seeing things that didn’t exist before,” like express kidnappings, and that it is important to work on prevention in order to prevent an escalation in violence. “We work a lot on training with Brazil and Argentina, and they tell us, ‘We hope that what happened to us doesn’t happen to you.’ There are signs that the same process that our neighbors experienced is occurring. It started like this, and the situation solidified,” he said. Perceptions of insecurity on the rise What is certain is that although the level of violence in Uruguay is still low, Uruguayans’ perceptions of insecurity are on the rise, and Andión is seeing the results in his business, where he is receiving many more requests for advice than before. At his Personal-Defense Training Center – which is the Uruguayan representative of organizations such as C.A.T.I., from Brazil, S.O.G. International, from France, and I.S.A., from Israel – 120 “civilian” students have been trained so far this year. In the same period last year, 40 students were trained, and in the first year that the center was established, around 20. At the beginning of this year, with the notorious kidnapping of Uruguayan businessman Ignacio Rospide – which was not an “express kidnapping,” since it lasted twenty-four hours – Andión said that the profile of the clients requesting his firm’s training course changed. “Before the students were, the majority of them, from the middle and lower classes. They felt more exposed when they left work at night and had to walk to the bus stop,” he recounted. “Now there are more businesspeople who are worried about their safety. They were some of the ones who used to say, ‘Nothing happens here,’ and they didn’t feel vulnerable, because they have alarms in their houses, guards, and get around by car. But now, with Rospide’s kidnapping, they’ve realized that it could happen to them.” Prevention and recommendations Andión recommended as a system of prevention that people stay alert and not expose themselves to certain risks. “People should avoid walking in dark places where there is little traffic and should avoid staying inside a vehicle parked on the street, talking on their cellphones, for example. They should wait until they get home to talk on their cellphones. A moving car is more difficult to accost,” he explained. If someone does become the victim of an express kidnapping, Andión said that “time should be in his favor in order to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.”last_img read more

Why Liverpool should retain faith in Mohamed Salah ahead of Bayern Munich Champions League showdown

first_imgSalah’s last goal came against Bournemouth over a month ago (Getty Images)Salah’s lean spell in front of goal continued during Sunday’s 4-2 win over Burnley in which his two trusted strike partners Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino both helped themselves to two goals apiece. Mane has been in particularly fruitful form of late, netting in each of his previous six home games in the league.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTWith games rapidly running out, the margin for error is increasingly slim with City currently just one point better off than Liverpool. A factor that could tip the scales back Liverpool’s favour is if their No.11 can rediscover the form that made him Europe’s most feared forward this time last year.Cause for concern?Perhaps with the exceptions of the two goalscoring phenomenons of this or any other generation Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, every striker, even the elite ones, will go through a period of games in which their goalscoring form drops off.Quite clearly, Salah is going through one of those inevitable blips in front of goal with his last strike coming five games ago during a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth in February but considering his form over his first 20 months in a Liverpool shirt, it is a matter of when and not if the goals start flowing again.Arguably of greater concern, however, is Salah’s record in the big games this season, particularly with Liverpool set to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16 second leg on Wednesday as well as both Spurs and Chelsea in the Premier League over the next four gameweeks.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityBruno Fernandes responds to Man Utd bust-up rumours with Ole Gunnar SolskjaerIn eight matches against Liverpool’s top-six opponents this season – Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea – Salah has returned just one goal and one assist, both of which came during the 5-1 hammering of Arsenal in December.Taking non-penalty goals into account, that number shrinks to zero. As well as failing to score against any of Liverpool’s direct competitors, Salah also blanked in both Merseyside derbies against Everton and has netted just once from five Champions League games against PSG, Napoli and Bayern Munich.In genuine big matches this season then, Salah has scored two goals in 15 games including one from the penalty spot. For a player who scored against all of the top-six clubs (with the exception of Manchester United), Everton and ten times in the Champions League last term, that is a hugely disappointing return. Why Liverpool should retain faith in Mohamed Salah ahead of Bayern Munich Champions League showdown Advertisement No player has scored more goals in a single 38-game Premier League season than Mohamed Salah (Getty Images)There have been occasions recently when he has genuinely been a bit unfortunate too such as when he squeezed a shot past Ben Foster only to see it rebound off the post against Watford or when he smashed the crossbar after dinking Artur Boruc against Bournemouth. So long as Salah maintains his average of over three shots per game, you’d expect that luck to level out at some point.AdvertisementSalah has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the overused and tiresome ‘one season wonder’ tag certainly doesn’t belong to him. His 17 Premier League goals are only one fewer than the total required to win the Golden Boot in 1997-98 and 1998-99 and only two short of the tally in 2008-09.Given what he achieved last season and the fact that a lack of goals hasn’t appeared to have deterred him from shooting, it is only a matter of time before Salah returns to his most devastating form.For Liverpool, hunting down a first top-flight title since 1990, that can’t come soon enough.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errorsBoris Johnson rejects Marcus Rashford’s plea to extend free school meals Salah was substituted following an ineffectual display against Manchester United (Getty Images)Of the 12 Premier League teams Salah has scored against this season, only four (Arsenal, Wolves, Watford and West Ham) are currently situated in the top half of the table. It is generally the case that a Premier League title-winning team’s top goalscorer has a better goal to game ratio against lesser sides than top teams, of course.However, Salah’s profligacy in tight games against better quality opponents places a huge emphasis on others to step up to the plate. Mane and Firmino’s records of 16 and 11 goals apiece has alleviated some of the responsibility on his shoulders but beyond them, there are too few regular goal-getters in Liverpool’s squad.AdvertisementAdvertisementThat could be a factor behind Salah taking on too much responsibility for himself. Against Burnley, Salah recorded five attempts on goal – his fourth-highest total of the season – yet the majority of those efforts were either speculative or taken on when a teammate was in a better position.More: FootballNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesOdion Ighalo reacts to Manchester United signing Edinson Cavani and Alex TellesTimo Werner’s former manager makes prediction over his Chelsea careerReasons for optimismWhile the ball hasn’t been nestling in the back of the net for him, Salah has done his utmost to reverse his fortunes by continuing to unleash a high volume of shots against opposition goalkeepers. That he is doing so is a positive sign that his confidence hasn’t been unduly affected by a recent downturn in form.Across the entire season to date, only (somewhat surprisingly) Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic has attempted more shots (102) in the Premier League than Salah’s 99 which averages out to 3.3 per game. Over the course of the last seven games, Salah has attempted 27 shots (3.8 per game) which is above his season’s average.Considering his recent form, Salah’s expected goals total is pretty much as you’d expect too – his xG rate is 17.75 for the season, only 0.75 higher than his actual total which suggests he has scored about as many goals as you’d expect him to have from the chances he’s taken on.It’s a similar tale with his conversion rate too which currently stands at a reasonable 17% – not too far away from the 22% he managed last season in which he scored 32 times in the Premier League, breaking the record for a 38-game season in the process.center_img CommentShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitter211Shares By Oliver Young-MylesWednesday 13 Mar 2019 7:01 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link211Shares Only Manchester City’s king of the hat-tricks Sergio Aguero has scored more Premier League goals than Mohamed Salah this season yet the Egyptian’s recent form has been pinpointed as a potential cause for concern as Liverpool attempt to overhaul the reigning champions in the title race.Salah’s record-breaking exploits during a scarcely believable debut campaign at Anfield were always going to be difficult, if not impossible, to replicate second time around and he’s actually done a very admirable job of keeping up his standards with 17 league goals in 30 games.However, the goals are not quite flowing as freely as they used to for Salah at the moment as highlighted by a return of just one solitary strike from his previous seven Premier League appearances and eight in all competitions if you include the 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich.
