“Besides the important #MeToo campaign, it’s just a whole country reeling from insanity and how fast and furious it’s come at us,” the Toronto native said in a recent phone interview from Los Angeles.“This (show) is coming two weeks after they passed this horrific tax bill. We don’t know what’s going to happen with (special counsel Robert) Mueller…. It is a really freakin’ crazy time, and once in a while, an awards show, even one as frothy as the Globes, can have that moment, who knows who it is, where somebody gets up and does something unifying.”Still, McCormack does expect there will be laughs — most notably at the “Will & Grace” table.The show has been nominated for a whopping 27 Golden Globes in the past but has never won. McCormack said they’ve taken their losses in stride and have become known as the party table.This year, “Will & Grace” has two new nods — one for McCormack and one for the series itself.“The ‘Will & Grace’ table, we’ve always done the same thing — we join together and we kind of wait, and one by one as people lose, we toast them,” McCormack said.“We cheer when we lose as if we’d won and it throws the room off and cameras don’t know where to point. I remember one year, (William H.) Macy looking over and realizing what we were doing and his table started to do the same thing.”This is McCormack’s sixth time being nominated for a Golden Globe for playing Will alongside Debra Messing as roommate Grace, Sean Hayes as their neighbour Jack, and Megan Mullally as wealthy friend Karen.The seminal series returned to TV in September, on Global and NBC, 11 years after it finished its first run.McCormack isn’t expecting to win but he has prepared a speech, just in case.“This particular award I’ve been nominated for five other times and never won, so I just keep sort of adapting and cutting and pasting,” he said with a laugh.“I think the first version of this speech goes, ‘How could Al Gore have lost?’ That’s how far back this goes.”This is the seventh time “Will & Grace” has been nominated for best television series, comedy or musical, and McCormack expects it would be very sentimental if the show were to “rise from the ashes” and win.“I think it’s a weirdly right fit for now, and it’s not just a comedic fit or it’s not just about the show being a gay show and us needing to revisit that,” said McCormack, who also stars on the series “Travelers” and is in the new film “Considering Love & Other Magic,” now available on iTunes.“It’s also just a comfort. We’re not in a war at the moment but it feels like we are. I’m starting to feel like this is what it felt like during wartime. You wake up every day terrified to read what (the president) has tweeted, and nothing feels like it used to feel, even a year ago. It doesn’t feel like the same country.“You can’t rely on the same things, so to suddenly be able to rely on this old show, on its old time-slot, Thursdays at 9, it feels like time stood still a little bit.”The Golden Globes air Sunday on CTV.

MADRID — Taxi drivers in Madrid have ended a 16-day strike after failing to force authorities in the Spanish capital to impose tighter restrictions on ride-hailing companies like Uber and Cabify.Fifty-three per cent of over 7,000 taxi drivers who voted late Tuesday backed calling off the strike, according to the professional association of taxi drivers Elite Taxi.The taxi sector had wanted Madrid’s regional government to take similar action to authorities in Spain’s second largest city, Barcelona, where a taxi strike resulted in new regulations requiring users of ride-hailing apps to contract services 15 minutes beforehand.That victory for taxi drivers in Barcelona led Uber and Cabify to announce that they would cancel operations in the city.The Associated Press
SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgaria and Greece are launching the construction of a pipeline to transport Azeri gas to Bulgaria to ease its almost total dependence on Russian gas supplies.At a ceremony near the border on Wednesday, the two prime ministers, Boyko Borissov and Alexis Tsipras, oversaw the formal start to construction of the 182-kilometre (114 miles) link between the two countries’ gas transmission systems.The pipeline is scheduled to become operational at the end of 2020, when Bulgaria is due to receive deliveries of Azeri gas from the Shah Deniz 2 development.The link is estimated to cost 220 million euros ($245 million) and its projected capacity will be between 3 and 5 billion cubic meters (105-175 billion cubic feet) per year.The Associated Press

The Group of Seven (G7) leaders summit to be held this weekend in France may end without a joint communique due to wide gaps between member nations on trade and climate issues, Japanese public broadcaster NHK reported on Tuesday.It would be the first time a G7 summit ends without a communique since meetings began in 1975, NHK said.Finding common ground between allies has become increasingly tough at the annual summit with the United States an outlier in its approach to handling disputes over trade and the environment.U.S. President Donald Trump has expressed his preference for bilateral trade pacts over multilateral agreements and is locked in a lengthy trade war with China.Trump also pulled the United States out of the landmark Paris agreement to limit the effects of climate change against European opposition.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.The summit will be held Aug. 24-26 in the southwestern France city of Biarritz.

Senior running back Carlos Hyde (34) breaks through the line on a run during the Big Ten Championship Game Dec. 7 in Indianapolis. OSU lost to Michigan State, 34-24. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorINDIANAPOLIS – Heading into the Big Ten Championship Game, the Michigan State Spartan defense was only allowing 64.8 yards rushing per game during the 2013 season.The Ohio State Buckeyes ran for 273 yards against the Spartans in Saturday’s title game — more than four times as much as their season average — but ended up on the wrong side of a 34-24 decision, ending any dream they had of making a trip to Pasadena, Calif. to play for the BCS National Championship.Despite the big rushing total, OSU senior running back Carlos Hyde felt like he could have done more on the ground, as is the case with every game.“I always want the ball more. I always want the ball more, just (to) get that momentum going for the offense,” Hyde said after carrying the ball 18 times for 118 yards in the loss.Hyde’s backfield mate, junior quarterback Braxton Miller, finished the night with 21 carries for 142 yards and two touchdowns. Miller also got the call on arguably the biggest play of the season — a fourth and two from the OSU 47 — and was stuffed.“I thought it was a great call. I felt like we had them,” Hyde said of Miller’s failed attempt to keep the drive and OSU’s undefeated season hopes alive. “A guy came off his block and made a great play right there.”OSU coach Urban Meyer said he “wanted to put the ball in the hands” of his best player (Miller) to try and get a first down, saying it was ultimately his call.Miller had his fair share of success rushing the ball in the second half — 11 carries for 68 yards — but as the game wore on, Hyde felt like he could have been getting whatever yardage needed for his team.“I felt like I could have got any yardage we needed that second half,” Hyde said. “Me and the offensive line was doing a great job. I just felt like we could have ran the ball the whole game in the second half … but you can’t question the coaching calls.”Meyer’s response was short when he was asked if in a perfect world, Hyde would have gotten more touches against the Spartans.“Yeah,” Meyer said.OSU punted seven times against Michigan State and Miller only threw for 101 yards on eight completions.“There’s always a thousand different things you could have done different in games like this,” OSU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman said after the loss, noting how he did not experience thoughts about giving Hyde the ball more when the outcome was decided. “So sit back and watch the film and figure out what those are and make sure those don’t happen again. But coming off the field, I didn’t feel that.”Hyde entered Saturday night’s game with 1,290 yards on the season, tallying those in only nine games after being suspended for the first three after his involvement in an incident at a Columbus bar in July. In OSU’s last three games against Illinois, Indiana and Michigan, he picked up 589 yards on the ground.“I think we could have gotten him (the ball) a little more,” redshirt-senior center Corey Linsley said after the loss. “I thought going into this game we had a great, great plan. That number (of carries) is cool, you know whatever … they thought that was best and we just didn’t get the job done.”The Spartans beat the Buckeyes with 17 straight unanswered points down the stretch. A lack of execution on both sides of the ball led to the end of the nation’s longest winning streak, but Hyde was brief in his response when asked about the lack of times his number was called.“I mean, it happens,” Hyde said with a shrug of his shoulders and a glance at the floor.

He brought so much love and kindness to everyone he met, and he leaves a huge hole in our family.”He would humbly say he was ‘just a plumber from Edinburgh who got lucky’. However, we are the lucky ones; the ones that were lucky enough to have Alan as part of our lives.”We’d like to thank everyone for the love and support that they have provided so far.”Mr Rudden said he was “one of the most gentle, generous & kind-hearted people I’ve ever known & touched the lives of all he met with a smile that made them feel special”.After the band split Mr Longmuir worked as a plumber and a water pipe inspector. His workmates called him Shang, after one of the band’s biggest hits.When the group reformed in 2015 he said in one interview: “One minute I was doing the Hollywood thing, going round to Britt Ekland’s for tea, then it was all over and I was doing rounds in my little van, like Postman Pat.” He was involved with other band members in a long-running court case over millions of pounds they believed they were owed from the days of “Rollermania”.Six band members began a multi-million pound suit against the Arista record company in 2007, but in 2016 it was reported that they won less than £70,000 each in an out-of-court settlement. His death was confirmed by the journalist Liam Rudden, writer of the Bay City Rollers musical, I Ran With the Gang.He tweeted a statement from Mr Longmuir’s family which said: “We are devastated to share the news that Alan has passed away peacefully surrounded by family. Alan Longmuir, one of the founding members of the Bay City Rollers, the hugely popular 1970s Scottish pop band, has died at the age of 70.The bass guitarist had recently returned to Edinburgh for treatment after falling ill while on holiday in Mexico three weeks ago.He is understood to have contracted a virus and was flown back to the UK for treatment at the Forth |Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert.His family said he passed away peacefully and described him as “an extraordinary man with an extraordinary heart”.Formed at the end of the 1960s, the Bay City Rollers enjoyed huge success at home and abroad with their distinctive outfits, featuring half-mast, tartan-trimmed trousers, and upbeat pop tunes, including Bye Bye Baby and Shang-a-Lang. They had a massive teen following, selling more than 100 million records.
Google asks all of the tough questions. And thanks to its predictive text, the search engine even finishes your sentences for you. People have been having fun with the feature since it first launched. After all, since its based on previous user experience, the phrases that automatically pop up are likely the result of other Google users having searched that combination of terms before. AdChoices广告There’s a particularly odd string of words, which make up a particularly search query. Type in the words “Why wont my p” and right there, between “why wont my printer print” (check your drivers) and “why wont my period stop” (see a doctor, please), is the question “why wont my parakeet eat my diarrhea?”The ridiculous search query has since taken the Web by storm.I suppose that, as the old adage goes, there’s no such thing as a dumb question. That said, there are certainly some odd ones–ones that inevitably lead to other questions, such as: why in the world was someone searching the phrase “why wont my parakeet eat my diarrhea?” Such a question seems to indicate that someone at some point was, in fact, attempting to feed a parakeet diarrhea. If those people are still out there, please know that there are perfectly good, non-diarrhea based food sources for your budgie. The Association of Avian Veterinarians recommends seed, beans, bread, rice, and various fresh fruits and vegetables.And heck, judging from your search query, you could probably do well to eat a bit healthier, too.

Mancini said Ali spoke to Department of Homeland Security officials by telephone and showed his driver’s license and passport before he was allowed to board.Ban“None of this was happening Wednesday,” Mancini said in a telephone interview on Friday afternoon as he was traveling with the Alis. “Going to Washington obviously opened up a can of worms at DHS.”A spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration acknowledged the agency confirmed Ali’s identity before he boarded his plane.Spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said Ali also was patted down because his jewelry set off a checkpoint scanner alarm.Florida Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was on the same flight, tweeted a photo with Ali after he was allowed to board and wrote: “On way home on DOMESTIC FLIGHT, Muhammad Ali Jr detained AGAIN … Religiously profiling son of ‘The Greatest’ will not make us safe.”The mother and son, both born in the United States, have said in interviews that they believe they have been stopped because they are Muslim with Arabic names. Earlier this week, they announced a campaign for religious freedom in the spirit of the boxing icon, supported by ex-boxing greats Evander Holyfield, Larry Holmes, Roberto Duran and others. They say they are opposed to President Donald Trump’s travel ban, which they feel unfairly targets Muslims.Read: Getting people to care about the environment?

Macron takes on Trump – this time with a ‘Make Our Planet Great Again’ website The website aims to match users with ways of helping fight the causes of climate change. http://jrnl.ie/3434057 By AFP Sunday 11 Jun 2017, 11:00 AM 49 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share Tweet Email Source: Evan Vucci/PA ImagesFRENCH PRESIDENT EMMANUEL Macron has launched a website aimed at attracting researchers, entrepreneurs and others to France to pursue efforts to combat climate change.The 39-year-old, who said last week that US President Donald Trump had made an historic error by abandoning the Paris climate accord, used a cheeky twist of Trump’s campaign slogan for the site’s name: www.makeourplanetgreatagain.fr.“The planet needs your innovative skills. So, are you IN to change (literally!) our daily lives and make our planet great again?” it asked, under the video clip Macron made last week, in English, in response to Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris deal.Clicking through, users are asked to choose if they are researchers, business people, teachers, students or others, and which country they come from, and are able to fill in their details with a promise they will be contacted within three days.

Your commitment can inspire many others,” it said, asking them to share their stories on Twitter.“This is the only way we can spread the word: Something is happening. Our planet is about to be great again.”World leaders mostly reacted with anger and defiance after Trump announced that the United States, the world’s second biggest carbon emitter, was quitting the deal hammered out in 2015 in the French capital.Some huge tech companies, including Microsoft and Facebook, pledged to abide by the restrictions of the Climate Accord, despite the US refusal to sign the agreement.Led by Macron and Germany’s Angela Merkel, they branded Trump’s decision as misguided and vowed to defend an accord they portrayed as crucial for the future of the planet.Leading greenhouse gas emitter China promised to uphold the pact while European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said there could be “no backsliding” on the deal.- © AFP 2017Read: ‘Make our planet great again’: World leaders attack Trump for pulling out of climate dealRead: Emmanuel Macron: White-knuckle handshake with Trump ‘was not innocent’ 15,275 Views Short URL
The 25-year-old English defender believes he has what it takes to play in England’s highest football level.Tommie Hoban started his professional career in 2011 with Watford.There, he scored two goals in 54 appearances as a defender.He was loaned to Wealdstone in 2012, then to Blackburn Rovers in the 2016-2017 season.His latest loan cames this summer, as he joined Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League.But the 25-year-old believes he has what it takes to play in England’s highest football level.“Unfortunately for me it’s been one thing after another,” he tells The42.“You do get to a point where you have to ask yourself if you can go back to it again.”“I was devastated, to be honest,” he says.“You try to stay as positive as you can, but when so much time in your career is going to waste it does get hard to keep your spirits up. If you get too down it can become a negative cycle which can be really hard to get out of.”Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“When the injury happened, my son was a few weeks away from being born, so you’re starting to think about his future as well. ‘How many more times can I go through this?’ — that’s what you’re asking yourself,” he added.“I had already been looking into a few other things, doing some extra studying outside of football just to prepare for the worst-case scenario if it ever got to that stage.”“My dad has a business in financial advising and it’s something I’ve always had an interest in,” he recalled.“It’s hard to explain, but even when you get back to fitness, you’ve missed so much football that your body doesn’t feel the same as it did before. You have to make a lot of adjustments. Your recovery takes longer and that can take a bit of getting used to.”“Obviously it has been great to be back playing recently,” said the Watford loanee.“I feel fit now but I still have issues sometimes with pain. I’ve had to take tablets before and after games. That can all take a toll on you. But being part of a winning team, as I have been in the last few weeks, is a feeling that not many things can come close to.”…I know the club will bounce back to where they belong soon and I wish all the players, staff and fans all the best for the future!— Tommie Hoban (@tommiehoban05) May 7, 2017
Larry was charged with count of strong armed robbery, impersonating a police officer, indecent exposure and battery.“I want to thank the community for giving us this tip that ultimately led to the apprehension of this person. This shows how a community can make a difference when they partner with police,” Coral Gables Police Chief Edward Hudak said. Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. PINECREST, FLA. (WSVN) – A Miami man is behind bars after being accused of pretending to be a police officer.Police arrested 32-year-old Gil Larry in Pinecrest, Thursday, after an anonymous tip was made to Coral Gables Police.Officers said he’s the man who was caught on surveillance video back on July 3rd. Police said he told a woman to lean against a parked car so he could forcefully pat her down. Then, he robbed her and exposed himself to her.According to Coral Gables Police, the victim was walking along the 4000 block of Aurora Street, just off Bird Road and two blocks from the upscale Shops at Merrick Park when the subject approached just before 5:15 a.m.Investigators said the subject proceeded to take advantage of the situation by identifying himself as a police officer. “He patted down that female, and while doing so, he exposed his genitals and deprived her of her property,” said Coral Gables Police Officer Lauren Poole.Police said the subject, wearing mostly black and carrying a two-tone backpack, forcibly took the victim’s valuables. At first, the woman did not run because the man threatened her, warning her that he had a gun.Moments later, the woman made the brave decision to take off running southbound on Aurora Street. The man then fled the scene on the opposite direction on a longboard skateboard.

Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR 5G Intel Apple Apple’s 2018 iPhones include the XR and XS models. Angela Lang/CNET While we’re still awaiting official word on the iPhone 11, expected in September of this year, there’s already advance word on what to expect from the 2020 edition of the iPhone. And the latest on that is that all three versions of the 2020 iPhone should have 5G capabilities, according to a new report.Analyst Ming-chi Kuo had earlier predicted that two of the three iPhones that’ll be unveiled in 2020 would be 5G-ready. Now, according to a new report obtained by MacRumors, Kuo expects all three phones will support 5G.Kuo said that having 5G across all three models will help Apple better compete against lower-cost Android phones that have 5G support. All three new models, Kuo said, will likely support both the mmWave and sub-6GHz versions of 5G, according to the MacRumors report.That’s a big deal. With superfast, low-latency 5G networks just starting to go into service, the pressure will be on Apple to keep pace with other phone makers, including Samsung and LG, that have already brought their first 5G devices onto the market. At the moment, there are only a handful of markets offering only limited 5G coverage, but the new networks will become more and more widespread as 2020 unfolds. $999 Phones Tags Aug 31 • Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: Choose the best 5G carrier Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.

Apple Comment • See It 13 Photos $999 Sprint 1:23 $999 See All Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X The expectation has always been that Apple wouldn’t have a 5G iPhone for this year’s iPhone 11 cycle, having been stymied by a dispute with Qualcomm that kept it a step or two behind. But the company took a big stride forward last week when it acquired Intel’s smartphone modem business in a $1 billion deal.Kuo noted that the acquisition should give Apple more resources for developing 5G iPhones. Even so, the 2020 iPhones will likely use modem chips from Qualcomm, with Apple’s own modem chips not appearing in the phones till 2021, according to MacRumors. Prices for 5G Android smartphones, Kuo wrote, will decline to prices from $249 to $349 in the second half of 2020, and that the phones at the price will support only sub-6GHz capabilities. “But the key is that consumers will think that 5G is the necessary function in 2H20,” he wrote, according to the MacRumors report. “Therefore, iPhone models which will be sold at higher prices have to support 5G for winning more subsidies from mobile operators and consumers’ purchase intention.” Sub-6GHz 5G networks aren’t as fast as those using mmWave technology, but the signals travel farther and can penetrate barriers such as walls and glass that stop short-range mmWave signals.Neither Apple nor Kuo, through his firm TF International Securities, responded immediately to a request for comment.Originally published at 2 p.m. PT.Update, 2:34 p.m.: Adds background on Apple and 5G, and more details from Kuo’s report.

Donald TrumpPresident Donald Trump’s nominee for the federal court in Washington withdrew from consideration after a video that showed him admitting a lack of experience and ignorance of basic legal concepts went viral.“It has become clear to me over the past few days that my nomination has become a distraction-and that is not fair to you or your administration,” Matthew Petersen wrote in a letter to Trump, a copy of which was carried by CNN.A member of the Federal Election Commission, Petersen saw his prospects of a career on the bench derailed by a hearing in which he was questioned, and ultimately humiliated by a lawmaker from his own party.Petersen’s ordeal began when Republican Senator John Kennedy asked if any of the nominees had not tried a case to verdict, and he raised his hand.Have you ever tried a jury trial? No. Civil? Also no. Criminal? Another no. Bench? Same answer.Petersen said he was “involved” in taking a deposition, but would “be struggling to remember” how many.Asked if the number was less than five, he said it was “somewhere in that range”-none of them by himself.Have you argued a motion in state or federal court? No.Then came the legal knowledge review.“When’s the last time you read the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure?” Kennedy asked.“In my current position, I obviously don’t need to stay as invested in those on a day-to-day basis,” responded Petersen.The Federal Rules of Evidence?“Well, comprehensively would’ve been in law school,” Petersen said.What is the Daubert standard?“I don’t have that readily at my disposal.”A motion in limine?“I would probably not be able to give you a good definition right here at the table.”The Younger abstention doctrine?“I’ve heard of it.”For Trump’s critics, selecting Petersen illustrates that the president puts political considerations above the competency of his nominees-something that directly contradicts his assertions during the campaign that he would “hire the best people.”Two other Trump judicial nominees were withdrawn after damning media reports emerged.One reportedly referred to transgender children as part of “Satan’s plan,” while another failed to disclose that his wife is chief of staff to the White House council and blogged in defense of the early Klu Klux Klan.

This would be just in time for the 2020 general elections, especially critical for Latinos in the U.S., said Romina Rosado, Senior Vice President of Digital Media & Emerging Business, Telemundo Digital Enterprises.Newscast will be the first Noticias Telemundo production to live outside a Telemundo-owned platform. The Telemundo YouTube channel has been running since 2007. Telemundo will complement the Google News Innovation (GNI) YouTube grant with its own investment aside from promoting the newscast across its social networks and launching a co-branded marketing/communications campaign for target consumers and the trade community“In today’s fast-paced world you need to reach out to your audience where it is, not where you want it to be, and U.S. Hispanics over-index in YouTube,” said Rosado who envisions a show that would be native to YouTube, with its choice of on-air talent, stories, cadence and packaged format.The median age for U.S. Hispanic YouTube users is 27 compared to 42 for non-Hispanic Whites, according to Nielsen. U.S. Hispanics aged 18-49 over-index in YouTube, making it the ultimate platform to tap young Latinos.“Our goal here is for Noticias Telemundo to reinvent the ‘traditional’ broadcast news for the LatinX generation– the multicultural, multiracial, mobile, millennials in the United States,” said Rosado who believes the estimated 20-minute newscast will grow organically, and be monetized not only via a revenue share pact with YouTube but through advertising and sponsorship pacts.Newscast will be complemented by clips and possibly documentary shorts produced in-house. “Telemundo Noticias launched Telemundo Investiga, featuring more in-depth investigative pieces, which was conceived as a linear production but now we’re thinking of how we can extend this and integrate it digitally,” said Rosado.In October, Telemundo, E! and Universo launched “Latinx Now!,” a 30-minute weekly entertainment and lifestyle news show produced in English and Spanish for bicultural audiences across the U.S. and Latin America.
