In Peabody’s Hometown, Calls for a ‘Societal Shift’

first_imgIn Peabody’s Hometown, Calls for a ‘Societal Shift’ FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Jacob Barker for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:Speakers urged a societal shift away from coal because of air pollution and its high carbon emissions and global warming potential. Others worried a bankrupt Peabody might walk away from mine cleanup costs.The protest was coordinated by Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, or MORE, which has targeted Peabody over the years. It was meant to “send a message” to the bankruptcy judge to keep the miner from shedding mine cleanup obligations in court, said Jeff Ordower, a MORE organizer.The bankruptcies of Peabody and other large coal companies, including Creve Coeur-based Arch Coal, have drawn attention to the companies’ practice of guaranteeing many mine cleanups with their own assets rather than insurance.Arch Coal has received bankruptcy court approval to pledge $75 million for self-bonding liabilities exceeding $450 million. Peabody has roughly $1.5 billion in self-bonding cleanup liabilities.Even in bankruptcy, Peabody draws coal protesterslast_img read more

The Fight for Senate Control

first_imgThis year’s election season has sometimes felt like the longest the country has ever experienced. It was nasty. It took place during a pandemic that has kept many of us at home. And it still isn’t over.- Advertisement – The pangram from yesterday’s Spelling Bee was godchild. Today’s puzzle is above — or you can play online if you have a Games subscription. – Advertisement – The key difference with the new consoles is the quality of the image, with even more realistic graphics. The new systems also promise faster loading times.“Years of technological advancements and game development are coming to fruition,” Kellen Browning, who covers video games for The Times, told us. “Imagine if a new iPhone only came out once every seven years — that’s what this moment is like for gamers.”The reviews: Times reporters evaluate the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X.PLAY, WATCH, EATWhat to Cook – Advertisement – To learn more about the runoff candidates, try these profiles: The Times’s Richard Fausset on Loeffler; The Atlantic’s Emma Green on Warnock; and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Tamar Hallerman on Ossoff and Perdue. That’s not even a reference to President Trump’s continued refusal to concede — which, while damaging to the credibility of American democracy, is extremely unlikely to change the result.When I say the campaign isn’t over, I’m referring to Georgia. Because of both circumstance and a quirk in that state’s law, Georgia will host two Senate runoff elections on Jan. 5 (barring an unlikely change in the current vote totals). The implications are enormous.If Democrats win both, they will narrowly control the Senate, and Joe Biden will be able to pursue ambitious legislation on the coronavirus, climate change, job creation, taxes and more. If Republicans win either Georgia seat, they will retain Senate control (barring an unlikely change in another state’s vote totals), and Biden will need one or more Republican votes to pass any bill. Both parties consider the Georgia runoffs highly competitive. Biden currently leads Trump in Georgia, 49.5 percent to 49.2 percent. One of the two runoffs will resolve a special election following the early retirement of Johnny Isakson, a Republican who is in poor health. The top two vote getters in the first round of that special election will now face each other. They are Senator Kelly Loeffler, a Republican businesswoman whom Georgia’s governor appointed to the seat, and Raphael Warnock, the head pastor at the Atlanta church that Martin Luther King Jr. once ran.center_img Here are the basics on Georgia, if you want to go deeper: The second runoff is between Senator David Perdue, a Republican running on the normal schedule for a second term, and Jon Ossoff, the Democratic nominee and a documentary filmmaker. Perdue leads Ossoff, 49.7 percent to 47.9 percent, in the latest vote count. But Georgia, unlike most states, requires a runoff if neither candidate wins 50 percent in a Senate general election. Want to get The Morning by email? Here’s the sign-up.Good morning. Trump still won’t concede, which Biden called an “embarrassment.” And a look at the implications of Georgia’s Senate runoff elections.

It earned $120 billion in revenue last year — almost three times as much as Hollywood. Two-thirds of adults in the U.S. play video games, either on their phones, a computer or a console. Gaming is so popular that millions of people visit streaming sites every month to watch other people play games.Yet video games do not attract nearly as much media attention as movies, television, music or sports. We’re going to do our part to address that deficit by telling you — if you don’t already know — that this week is a big one for the industry, because two new video game consoles are coming out: Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X.New consoles are rare. Sony and Microsoft both released the most recent versions of their systems seven years ago. The new consoles will probably stick around for that long, too, meaning these will be the machines that power video games for most of this decade. In an earlier era, the difference between these two scenarios might not have been huge. Either way, Senate moderates, of one party or the other, would have been the key to passing bills. But our polarized era is different, especially for congressional Republicans.They were almost uniformly unwilling to work with Presidents Bill Clinton or Barack Obama on major legislation, dealing with taxes, the climate, health care, economic stimulus and more. Obama offered various compromises — like market-based systems to expand health insurance or combat climate change — and still could not win Republican votes. The situation has been more nuanced with congressional Democrats during Republican presidencies, as bipartisan coalitions have passed big bills on stimulus, Medicare and education since 2000.Maybe Biden will somehow prove more adept at finding Republican votes than Obama or Clinton. More likely, though, the elections in Georgia will shape Washington for at least the next two years.- Advertisement – The most significant difference is probably on climate change. It “is the issue that throws the Georgia runoffs into sharpest relief,” as Vox’s Ezra Klein has written. “If Democrats win 50 seats in the Senate, large-scale climate legislation is possible, even likely. If they don’t, it’s simply not going to happen.” THE LATEST NEWSMore on the Electionlast_img read more

NBA All-Star Game 2019: Biggest snubs, surprises to make rosters

Related News NBA free agency rumors: Clippers, Nets expected to pursue Jimmy Butler this offseason NBA All-Star Game 2019: Ben Simmons, Anthony Davis lead list of reserves SnubsD’Angelo Russell / Jimmy ButlerRussell has put the Nets in position to make the playoffs for the first time since 2014-15 and Butler has elevated the 76ers into championship contention.Both of these players could have been in the game and one of them will probably end up there.Pacers star Victor Oladipo was named a reserve Thursday. However, he suffered a season-ending leg injury last week and will be unable to participate. Russell and Butler are the leading candidates to replace him.Tobias HarrisThe eight-year veteran is having his best season and is undoubtedly the Clippers’ go-to scorer.He’s averaging 21.2 points and 7.9 rebounds while shooting 43.3 percent from 3-point range in 2018-19. All of those are career highs.Los Angeles has exceeded expectations this season and is fighting for a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Harris deserved an All-Star spot.Luka DoncicDoncic has had a fantastic season and many believed he’d end up in the game.The third-overall pick in the 2018 draft is top five amongst rookies in almost every statistical offensive category. He’s registered 20.4 points, 6.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game.The Mavericks are just 23-27 but are much improved this season. Doncic is the main reason why.SurpriseKhris MiddletonMiddleton has certainly been good this season. He’s averaging 17.3 points and 4.2 assists in 31.1 minutes per game while shooting 37.6 percent from 3-point range. The Bucks are also one of the best teams in the NBA and enter play Thursday in first place of the Eastern Conference standings with a 36-13 record. They deserve to be rewarded for their success.Middleton, however, is clearly Milwaukee’s secondary option behind Giannis Antetokounmpo and he has also had better statistical seasons. He tallied 20.1 points per game in 2017-18 and has knocked down more than 40 percent of his 3-pointers three different times during his seven-year career.While he is deserving of a spot, a case could definitely be made that Russell or Butler should be on the team over Middleton.Klay ThompsonThompson is one of the best shooters of all time and a major reason for the Warriors’ success since 2014-15. But, he isn’t putting up his typical numbers from 3-point range this season.center_img The complete list of players competing in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game was released Thursday.The Magic’s Nikola Vucevic and Denver’s Nikola Jokic will make their first appearances in the game while Blake Griffin became an All-Star for the first time since 2014-15. Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Pelicans star Anthony Davis were also obvious reserve selections. Thompson struggled to open the year and while he has rebounded, he’s shooting 37.9 percent from behind the arc, his worst percentage in his eight-year career. He’s also connected on 46.2 percent of his total shots, his worst field-goal percentage since 2013-14.The 2019 game will be Thompson’s fifth All-Star appearance. He is averaging 21.7 points, but Harris or Doncic may have been more deserving of a selection this season.The teams will be picked by captains LeBron James and Antetokounmpo at 8 p.m. ET Feb. 7 on TNT. This will be the first year the event is televised. The game will be played Feb. 17 in Charlotte, N.C.last_img read more

Protests shake Rio hours before opening Olympics gala

first_imgBearers Diego Scofano (L) holds the Olympic Torch of Rio 2016 Olympic Games during a torch relay with Giuseppe Pellegrino atop the Sugarloaf in Rio de Janeiro on August 5, 2016. PHOTO AFPRio de Janeiro, Brazil | AFP |Thousands of Brazilians angry at political upheaval, corruption and the cost of the Rio Olympics blocked traffic in protests hours before the gala opening ceremony.Most people came to vent anger at center-right interim president Michel Temer who took power in May on the suspension of the elected leftist president, Dilma Rousseff, for an impeachment trial that her supporters claim amounts to a coup.The demonstrators, however, also targeted the Olympics, saying the billions of dollars spent on staging South America’s first Games fueled corruption and only helped the elite.Waving signs that read “No to the Olympics!” and “Temer out!”, about 3,000 people blocked a major avenue outside the luxury Copacabana Palace Hotel where many Olympic team members are staying.Guests with Olympic accreditation around their necks looked down from the hotel terrace at the protest, while the crowd jeered at vehicles taking Olympic VIPs and athletes through the upscale neighborhood.When a limousine surrounded by police outriders came through, the crowd surged forward, chanting “no to the coup” and “putschists, fascists, we won’t let them pass!”The protest was the latest unwelcome distraction for Brazilian authorities and Olympic organizers ahead of the opening ceremony at the 78,600 capacity Maracana stadium.Authorities are also dealing with rampant crime, including a lengthening list of muggings against Olympic delegates and journalists, despite the deployment of 85,000 soldiers and police to protect the Games.Police at the Copacabana protest, which was to be followed by more demonstrations near the Maracana stadium, were restrained.Even when the protesters blocked the busy Avenida Atlantica, causing a major traffic snarl-up, the dozens of officers held back. The tactic was in marked contrast to the tear gas and rubber bullets used several times in the last few days to clear protesters from the Olympic torch relay. Just a facade Protesters, many of them from Rousseff’s leftist Workers’ Party, said Brazil’s deep economic and social problems are being swept under the carpet for the Olympics. “They’re holding the Olympics when people are having a very hard time,” said Ricardo Parents 59, a psychologist.“The Olympics is a facade, it’s for show. It doesn’t represent the reality of Brazil. They want to show everything nice and perfect.”Over and over again the crowd chanted “Temer out” and called for Rousseff’s return.She is charged with breaking budgetary laws and looks almost certain to be thrown out of office by the Senate in the next few weeks at the end of an impeachment process that she says has been manipulated by Brazil’s right, calling Temer the chief “conspirator.”“I am demonstrating for democracy in Brazil. The world is watching so we are here to denounce the coup,” said one demonstrator, Iraci Franca, 57, a nurse.She also said that the Games were a distraction at a time of national economic crisis.“It’s very hard right now in Rio state for education and health because of the lack of funds and non-payment of salaries,” she said.Rio de Janeiro won the right in 2009 to host the Olympic Games at a time when Brazil was economically and politically on the rise. The collapse in stability and wealth since then has been brutal.Temer is to open the Games at the Maracana stadium, while Rousseff and her predecessor and political mentor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva have refused to attend the ceremony.With opponents promising to boo Temer at the stadium, organizers plan to play loud music immediately after his remarks and mask the heckling, according to Brazilian media.“We want to take advantage when the world’s attention is on Brazil to denounce what’s happening, how we are on the path to dictatorship,” said one demonstrator, Ubiratan Delgado, a 59-year-old engineer.“We’re not against the Olympics, it’s the criminal Olympics we oppose.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Mike Tomlin Postgame Press Conference

first_imgNew England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, left, speaks to Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin after an NFL football game Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013, in Foxborough, Mass. The Patriots won 55-31. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)MT: Obviously a disappointing performance. Probably as disappointed as I have been, especially under the circumstances of how we were able to fight back there at the beginning of the second half. It was a 24-24 game and obviously they handled us and they handled us well. We’ve got to accept that and move forward. We will. We give them the credit. They were the better team tonight, obviously. And the scoreboard, stats and everything reflect that. For an injury standpoint, Vince Williams sustained a concussion, as did Ike Taylor. Those guys will be evaluated. Marcus Gilbert had an ankle injury. I’ll address any questions.Q: Mike, just off the top, any way to explain how many wide open receivers they had through the entire game?MT: We didn’t perform well.Q: Mike, you have talked about the effort and demeanor that you have wanted to see from this team. Did you see that down the stretch? Or did it look like the team quit to you?MT: Not good enough, not good enough. We are going to comb through this with a fine tooth comb, as we should. And those people who are lacking effort won’t be playing. It’s just that simple.Q: Mike, when you said this is probably the most disappointed as you have been, are you talking about this season?MT: This season.Q: Mike, why have Ben Roethlisberger out there at the end?MT: Because we have to get better and those are snap opportunities to get better. We ain’t turning it down, we ain’t running from anything. We have an opportunity to continue to work and get better, so we did that. The guys that were healthy were going to stay on the grass and finish the game.Q: Mike, when you fight back to 24-24 and then it’s 31-7 after that, what happened? Were you surprised?MT: We didn’t stop them. That’s the bottom line. We couldn’t stop them. We didn’t stop the run. We didn’t stop the pass.Q: Mike, is your first inclination to stick with it or do you re-evaluate the process at this point?MT: You re-evaluate everything. You have to after a performance like that and we will. It doesn’t necessarily mean we will change or change for the sake of changing, but we will look at every aspect of what we are doing and who we are doing it with because we can’t have performances like that.Q: I believe that was the most points the Steelers have ever allowed. Does that just get chalked up as a bad loss or does that mean something in the locker room?MT: No, you know, it’s a 55-point game. I don’t care if it’s the most points we have ever given up or not. It ain’t any more sickening or less sickening based on those results.Q: Mike, are you perplexed at all that this is happened or disappointed?MT: I am angry; disappointed. You know, we don’t have time for perplexed. You know, we are capable and better than that. We’ve got to be better than that. We weren’t, so we are going to fix it.Q: Any sense of that anger reflected in the team?MT: I’m not going to speak for them, I will let those guys speak for themselves.Q: At 24-24, what was your feel? Did you feel like that was a game you could win?MT:Absolutely, I did. Obviously the big punt return was a significant play, but we had overcome some significant plays to that point in the game. But, we didn’t.Q: Mike, you obviously looked at film on the Patriots and they had been struggling. Rob Gronkowski is back and it looks like he is healthy. How does that change the Patriots and what happened tonight?MT: I’m not going to speak for those guys. I think they are capable of speaking for themselves, you know, and their performance tonight obviously speaks for itself.Q: You only had two pass interference penalties all year and you had two on one drive. Is that sort of the thing you say ‘those things can’t happen’?  MT: It’s just kind of indicative of how we performed tonight.Q: Mike, the number of big pass plays, not only tonight, but all year. You know, that is something that you guys just don’t typically do. What’s happening there?MT: You know, I’m not ready to characterize the season, but tonight, obviously we were out of place. They executed well, that combination was lethal.–Postgame Transcript compiled by Patriots Media Relationslast_img read more

Capture Intense Cinematic Action With High Shutter Speed

first_imgHigh shutter speed is the secret ingredient of thrilling action cinematography. Here’s everything you need to know about the technique.Have you ever watched a war film or an action film and wondered why certain scenes look so clean and intense? Why certain scenes have an almost raw sharpness to them? It’s hard to explain — but you know it when you see it. This look is usually achieved one of two ways: high frame rate or high shutter speed.We’ve written about the use of high frame rate in film and video production before. Now let’s turn our attention to high shutter speed. Here’s a video from Story & Heart (via Vimeo Video School) that covers the differences between high shutter speed and high frame rate.The basics: higher shutter speeds introduce less light to the sensor. As less light is introduced, less motion blur is seen. This gives the footage a look of hyperreality. A sharpness and crispness that almost overwhelms your brain. Before we dive deeper, let’s look at the differences between capturing high shutter speed on a video camera versus a cinema camera.Shutter Speed vs. Shutter AngleShutter speed is calculated by fractions (speed) in video cameras such as DSLRs. In cinema cameras, it’s calculated in degrees (angles). Look at it like this: if you have a 1/50 shutter speed in a DSLR camera, that same shutter in a cinema camera would be a 172.8 degree shutter angle. Pro Video Coalition has a great breakdown on how to get an accurate calculation of both shutter speed and shutter angle.Here’s a quick and easy conversion chart from the article. The numbers below show the shutter equivalent between speed and angle.1/32 = 2701/48 = 1801/50 = 172.81/60 = 1441/96 = 901/120 = 72 Live SportsImage via ShutterstockSports videography might be the one area of the media industry where high shutter speed is used most. From the NFL to Red Bull Action Sports, high shutter speed is ubiquitous in the sports world.The technique ensures that audiences feel they’re missing none of the action on the field of play. Every moment and move is captured without motion blur, as seen in this (sadly non-embeddable) cinematic look of Super Bowl 50 from the NFL.Film and TelevisionHigh shutter speed really took hold of audience imaginations in the late 90s, thanks to Steven Spielberg and cinematographer Janusz Kaminski. Their use of the technique to vividly capture the horrors of World War II in Saving Private Ryan was a watershed moment.Video via MovieclipsBecause they used a high shutter speed (or, rather, a low shutter angle), every second of the action is crystal clear; there’s no motion blur to diffuse the image. This technique was replicated only a few years later in Ridley Scott’s blockbuster, Gladiator. Cinematographer John Mathieson used the technique to elevate the intensity of violence to another level.Video via MovieclipsPerhaps the best recent application of the technique is found in Mad Max: Fury Road. Director George Miller and cinematographer John Seale used high shutter speed — in conjunction with speed ramping and frame speed — to create a truly frenetic experience.Video via jenjaesxAlways consider your motivation when using high shutter speed. Sure, you can use it simply because it looks, well, cool. But using it to transform a viewer’s experience into something more immersive is even better.Using high shutter speed can really give you a powerful image. Putting substance over style and having proper motivation will prevent you from wearing out your audience’s senses.Have you had success working with high shutter speed? Do you enjoy seeing this technique in film and television? Share your thoughts in the comments below.last_img read more
