Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter on Incredibles 2 and Brad Bird - Zara Basket

0 I absolutely loved writer-director Brad Bird’s Incredibles 2 . It’s one of those rare sequels that just gets everything right and reminds you why Pixar is such a special company. Trust me, if you were nervous The Incredibles sequel would be anything less than amazing, you can relax. Finally, while everyone that worked on Incredibles 2 deserves some credit for helping to bring the film to life, I’ve got to single out Michael Giacchino , because his score for the film is something really special and absolutely elevates everything on screen. I can’t wait to see it again. With the film now playing in theaters and breaking box office records , I got to sit down with Craig T. Nelson (“Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible”) and Holly Hunter (“Helen Parr / Elastigirl”) to chat about the film. During the interview, they talked about what’s great about Brad Bird’s dialogue, how the film never talks down to children, how Bird is essentially all the characters, and what would surprise people to learn about the making of an Incredibles movie. As most of you know from the trailers, Incredibles 2 is about Elastigirl ( Holly Hunter ) heading out to try and redeem the good name of the Supers, which leaves Mr. Incredible ( Craig T. Nelson ) at home trying to raise Violet ( Sarah Vowell ), Dash ( Huck Milner ), and Jack-Jack. The film also features the voice of Bob Odenkirk and Catherine Keener . For more on the film, read Matt Goldberg’s review . Check out what Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about and the official synopsis. Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter: Why Brad Bird is such a talented writer. What is it like to work with Brad Bird when recording in the room? What would surprise people to learn about the making of an Incredibles movie? Image via Pixar/Disney Here’s the official synopsis for Incredibles 2 : In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible. - Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), Disney•Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.

Saffronising Ambedkar: Why the Sangh portrays Ambedkar as anti-communist and anti-Muslim

Saffronising Ambedkar: Why the Sangh portrays Ambedkar as anti-communist and anti-Muslim

By Anand Teltumbde | 17 In his book Republic of Caste , the civil-rights activist and writer Anand Teltumbde explores the foundational idea of the republic—equality—and how caste has subverted this idea and its implementation in every institution in the country. Teltumbde examines education, reservation, politics and policy, alongside ideological movements such as Marxism and Ambedkarism, violence and atrocities against Dalits, and protests such as Una in Gujarat. He shows that caste—especially the oppression of Dalits—has defined modern India. In the following extract, taken from the chapter “Saffronising Ambedkar: The RSS Inversion of the Idea of India,” Teltumbde notes that BR Ambedkar’s bitter critique of Hinduism pervaded the latter’s writings, and that his actions exhibited an “ultimate abhorrence” for Hinduism. This history, Teltumbde writes, comes in the way of the Rashtriya Swayamasevak Sangh’s goal to make India a “Hindu rashtra.” To bring Dalits into the fold, Teltumbde adds, the Sangh is left with no option but to co-opt Ambedkar and project him as opposed to Muslims and communists—effectively, to “saffronise” him. Dalits constitute an important part of the Sangh Parivar’s game plan. Its strategic apple cart—meant to polarise the Indian population into Hindus versus others: Muslims, Christians and communists (i.e. those who do not agree with it)—could be toppled by the dalits. It cannot be taken for granted that dalits would identify themselves as Hindus anymore. With their historical, social, ideological and cultural profile, they have the potential to play spoiler for the BJP’s agenda for the nation. It is for this reason that Ambedkar assumes critical importance in the Sangh Parivar’s strategy. Unless Ambedkar were adequately saffronised, the rejection of Hinduism by the dalit masses under his leadership would continue to plague its efforts. The new-found love for Ambedkar stems from this political expediency. It was during the tenure of Madhukar Dattatraya alias Balasaheb Deoras, perhaps the most low-profile sarsanghchalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, from 1973 to 1994, that active work among dalits was initiated under Seva Bharati, the Sangh’s non-governmental organisation devoted to the purpose. The ensuing shifts of stance included placing Ambedkar among the Sangh’s pratahsmaraniya (literally, one who is venerated in the morning prayer), and floating—on Ambedkar’s birth anniversary in 1983—a purpose-built vehicle, the Samrasata Manch, to woo middle class dalits who yearned for social recognition from the upper castes. Until then, Ambedkar had been anathema to the Sangh Parivar, for his vitriolic attacks on everything they held sacred. Once the shift was accomplished, the Parivar began projecting him as the friend of its founder, KB Hedgewar—“the two doctors” was how this outlandish pairing was styled, as if the two had held learned confabulations together. It may be worth recalling here that Hedgewar was a mere licentiate practitioner with a diploma, not a medical degree holder, while Ambedkar held two doctoral degrees from world-renowned universities; but registering the gaps between fact and fantasy was never the Parivar’s strong suit. In the same vein, Ambedkar came to be projected as the greatest benefactor of Hindus, an admirer of the RSS, one opposed to Muslims and communists, a supporter of ghar wapsi, an advocate of the saffron flag as the national flag, a hyper-nationalist, and so on. These were clever misrepresentations, with at best a tenuous link to the facts of the case, and often none at all, but they were projected as truths with unflinching zeal. However easily one may recognise the gimmickry, it cannot be ignored or dismissed. It created the specious grounds for co-opting dalit leaders into the saffron fold. The BJP has made steady gains in the reserved constituencies over the years and, in the general elections of 2014, won more reserved seats than any other party. However, just winning reserved seats are not enough. The BJP’s polarisation strategy is contingent on de-radicalising dalits and winning them over. Since this formula turns on the deliberate alienation of religious minorities—who, along with dalits, constitute up to 30 per cent of the electorate—not having the dalits on their side would seriously impede their plans for a Hindu rashtra. All the preceding factors have left Hindutva-vadis desperate to co-opt Ambedkar as a saffron icon. Yet, Ambedkar, who was committed to evolving his views until his last days, wrote in Pakistan or Partition of India (1945): If Hindu Raj does become a fact, it will, no doubt, be the greatest calamity for this country. No matter what the Hindus say, Hinduism is a menace to liberty, equality and fraternity. On that account it is incompatible with democracy. Hindu Raj must be prevented at any cost. Another tract of Ambedkar, Philosophy of Hinduism (published posthumously), analyses the worth of Hinduism “as a way of life” and lambasts it as antithetical to “liberty, equality, fraternity,” failing on the front of justice as well as utility and moral and practical worth. Of course, this may not deter the saffron followers in persisting with the lie that Ambedkar was a great Hindu. Turning a deaf ear to facts is a practised art with them, and is essential to their survival. The problem for the RSS, as evident from the above, is that Ambedkar happens to be studied intensively by an increasing number of dalit and other student groups around the country. Wresting him from scholarly engagement is an imperative if right-wing groups are to get away with their spurious treatment of his life and works. In the wake of the controversy around the “derecognition” of the Ambedkar–Periyar Study Circle in May 2015 by the authorities at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, which provoked protests all over the country and even beyond, the Organiser , the mouthpiece of the RSS, wrote an exasperatingly muddled editorial against the protesters: “Unmasking Pseudo Ambedkarites” (June 2015). It accused them of “caste-based identity politics,” and of not knowing that Ambedkar was pro-Hindu and against communists, and, of course, justifying the derecognition of the APSC. To buttress its point with the appearance of erudition, the editorial began with a quote from Ambedkar’s Annihilation of Caste , lifted, lazily enough, from ambedkar.org and not the original text. The editor’s quotation of choice was set out in bold typeface: “Brahminism is the poison which has spoiled Hinduism. You will succeed in saving Hinduism if you will kill Brahminism.” Conveniently lost to view is the fact that Ambedkar goes on to argue in the next two paragraphs how the Hindus “must give a new doctrinal basis to [your] religion—a basis that will be in consonance with liberty, equality and fraternity; in short, with democracy.” and to effect this ‘complete change in the values of life,’ he says, “you have got to apply the dynamite to the Vedas and the shastras, which deny any part to reason.” A preposterous and cynical ploy of the editorial was the claim that protesters against the ban on the APSC were “reds.” Were the well-known scientists of the country, the ones who wrote to the IIT-M director against his undemocratic action, “reds”? Just as “liberal” in the United States gets construed to mean communist, the RSS takes “rational and democratic” to be “red.” While Ambedkar did have a difficult relationship with the Indian communists, he did not disagree with the ideals of Marxism (especially the goal of revolution). He was also more than clear in his denunciation of Hinduism. It is patently false of the RSS to claim that Ambedkar was an anti-red and pro-saffron personality, or that his critiques of the communists left him proportionately pro-Hindu. The question arising here is: Can brahminism be isolated from Hinduism, as the editorial line of the Organiser tried in its slippery way to achieve? While addressing reformist Hindus in 1936, Ambedkar tried to explain what ailed Hinduism and said that brahminism was the disease. The two terms were synonyms, he explained. Historically speaking, there is nothing called Hinduism; it is a medieval term, heteronomously applied to brahminism, the religion that was predominant beyond the Sindhu river. One is left wondering why a quote that implied no eulogy or sympathy for Hinduism was used by the RSS mouthpiece at all. It is important to note that while the Sangh Parivar and its BJP government wax eloquent over Ambedkar, they are slyly and systematically engaged in eroding his secular legacy. Ambedkar’s vitriolic comments on Hinduism and Hindutva should have made him the greatest enemy of the Parivar. Tragically, with the ideological disorientation of the dalits and some nimble footwork from the Parivar, this threat was transformed into a golden opportunity. By inducting Ambedkar into its pantheon, the Parivar has been disfiguring Ambedkar even as it appropriates him. The NDA government’s Pancha Tirtha project, setting up a pilgrims’ circuit between five places of significance in Ambedkar’s life—his birthplace in Mhow, the house in London where he stayed while studying in the UK, Deekshabhoomi in Nagpur where he converted, “Mahaparinirvan Sthal,” or the house where he died in Delhi, and Chaityabhoomi in Mumbai where his mortal remains were cremated—is another attempt to control the terms on which people engage with him, replacing the uncompromising thinker with a deified object of rituals, a saffron Ambedkar, a handy Trojan horse for ghar wapsi. How does casteism synchronise with the right-wing government’s new-found love for Babasaheb Ambedkar? This is not difficult to fathom. The BJP is desperate to woo dalits and needs them to accomplish its hindutva agenda. For that, Ambedkar is shamelessly projected as having been in favour of ghar wapsi. They declare that he is the greatest benefactor of the Hindus. Why? Because, rather than a semitic religion, he accepted Buddhism which they claim is just a sect of Hinduism. A staggering lie. They proclaim that he was against Muslims. They boast of his “friendship” with Hedgewar as well as that other guru of poisonous ideology, Golwalkar, and claim that he was all praise for the Sangh and so on. Yes, it is true that Hedgewar, Golwalkar, Savarkar and others in the RSS went and met Ambedkar—not vice versa, it must be noted—but that scarcely amounts to his being friends with them. He never praised their creed. It is true that BS Moonje, along with his friends, met Ambedkar at the Bombay airport, when he was a member of the flag committee, and handed over a saffron flag to him with a plea to make it the national flag. This cannot be construed to mean that Ambedkar supported their cause, or that he proposed Sanskrit as the national language. If he can be accused of being partisan, it is in imbuing the new republic with many Buddhist symbols between 1947 and 1950. As Christophe Jaffrelot notes in Dr Ambedkar and Untouchability: Analysing and Fighting Caste, these include “the chakra (the wheel of dhamma) on the Indian flag, the lions of Ashoka—the Buddhist emperor of ancient India—as the national emblem, and the inscription of a Buddhist aphorism on the pediment of Rashtrapati Bhavan.” By weaving enormous cobwebs of lies around tiny particles of truth, the Parivar obscures Ambedkar, dwarfing him to their own stature as a petty communalist, all in the hope of bringing the dalit community into their fold. This is an extract from Republic of Caste: Thinking Equality in the Time of Neoliberal Hindutva , written by Anand Teltumbde and published by Navayana. The extract has been condensed.

Jurassic World Evolution Review (PC) Noobreview :: John Hammond Simulator

0 If you’re into simulation games, then there are high chances that you had heard about the tycoon games. Tycoon games put you in charge of a zoo, theme park, amusement park, farm, hospital, and so on. Guess whose name pops up in the Credits screen in most tycoon games? Frontier Developments. Frontier Developments has been the pioneer in the development of simulation games since the dawn of time itself. And this year, they strike back with another new title in the genre, which is none other than Jurassic World : Evolution. The main menu. Jurassic World Evolution puts you in command of a “jurassic park”, or rather, an island designed to be a holiday destination for millions who are invited to have a look at extinct animals inside their enclosures. Jurassic World Evolution came out on June 12,2018 and is developed and published by Frontier Developments. The game is available for purchase on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Jurassic World Evolution Detailed Review Game Modes The game is playable only in singleplayer mode. There is no form of multiplayer, not even co-op island management. This was a traditional features of the tycoon games back in the day, and it’s good to see that Frontier Developments does not forget tradition when it comes to the developing a simulation game. The lack of an outright “Freeplay” mode where you design a Jurassic Park without any external interference, is quite noticeable. Apparently, out of the 5 islands in the archipelago, achieving a high enough rating on Isla Matanceros unlocks Isla Nublar, the island where the first dinosaur was brought back to life. Isla Nublar is the sandbox mode of Jurassic World : Evolution, and sadly has the same space constraints as the rest, though you are free from external interference from the several divisions of the Park, who keep bothering you for side missions. “Unlocking” sandbox mode? Really Frontier Developments? The Island Map shows the five islands of the archipelago allotted for the Jurassic Parks. Mechanics Jurassic World : Evolution is a collaboration of Frontier Developments and Universal Studios, where one is placed in charge of one of the five Jurassic Parks developed by the Hammond Corporation as a scientific research facility for bringing extinct creatures back from the dead, and later as a holiday retreat. The game borrows heavily from the narrative of the Jurassic Park films. The game also features some prominent figures from the films,like Claire, Owen and Dr. Malcolm. You’re tasked with bringing back extinct creatures, or in simpler terms, the dinosaurs, back from the dead. There are several game mechanics which allow you to bring back fossilized remains of dead dinosaurs and recreate them artificially in the laboratory (and yet it somehow involves “hatching” of eggs, despite the process of creation being described as artificial). Expeditions and Recreations The Expedition Center allows you to send Expedition teams to collect fossils from different parts of the world. The expedition brings back a number of fossils (which varies from time to time, most of the time the expedition team brings back 2-3 fossils). Fossils are studied, and their genome data are added to the database in the Fossil Center. While studying fossils, some of them might not contain dinosaur remains, and the only use for such fossils is selling them in the international market (which earns you $$$, one of the only resources in Jurassic World Evolution). The quality of the remains determines how much genome data can be obtained from it. If you’re short on cash, expeditions can prove to be a viable money maker too, assuming that it returns fossils of a decent quality, since any fossil obtained from an expedition can be sold. Yup, you can sell dinosaurs too, and possibly even release a few velociraptors or dilophosaurs to trap your guests and sell them as well .That is, if Hammond decided to go into overdrive to fulfill his dreams of bringing back every dinosaur possible (or atleast 42 dinosaurs, according to the game). Exhibits (or Enclosures) The Jurassic Park is basically a zoo with the basic difference being that the creatures are much more hostile and need special equipment as well as trained rangers to be dealt with. You lay down fences, put in a few gates so that the zookeepers, or the rangers in Jurassic Park terminology, can get to the dinosaurs and treat them if they’re ill, or just refill their stocks of food. The bigger the enclosure, more the number of dinosaurs you can keep. As you advance through the game, you get to unlock stuff like Viewing Towers, Viewing Platforms for allowing your guests a better view at the extinct animals roaming around in an enclosure, advanced fences for keeping in more unruly dinosaurs, like Electric Fences as well as Heavy and Light fences, depending on the dinosaur it is going to hold. Ever enclosure needs an attached Hammond Creation Lab, which is used for hatching dinosaur eggs of species with atleast 50% genome data. Depending on your luck, the dinosaur egg will die during the process of incubation, or survive to yield a living dinosaur. In order to change the characteristics of the dinosaur to be hatched, you can replace missing genome data with genes of other animals, which improves certain traits of the dinosaur. Exhibits should be spacious enough to house the dinosaurs. Ranger and ACU Teams Guests love watching dinosaurs – only while they’re inside their enclosures. In case of a breakout, specialized ACU teams are ready to tranquilize the dinosaurs running amok in the Park. Transport teams with special equipment are used for transporting the creatures back to their enclosures, while rangers take care of the structural damages. The only thing which seems kinda amiss is that when rangers actually repair structural damages, the building starts automatically repairing itself without any interference. In other words, you can’t see the rangers repairing it – they come, do some magical mumbo-jumbo, and that’s that. The Park’s system could have been fully automated, but in that case it would not have required the player’s attention in case of a breakout. The animation is pretty weird in case of healing injured or sick dinosaurs or refilling the food stocks too. Atleast the ACU teams can be seen shooting tranquilizer darts! You can drive a Ranger jeep? Woohoo! The Dinosaurs Dinosaurs have certain needs regarding the environment, as well as in terms of company of other dinosaurs of the same species. They need food and water for survival too. What’s prominently missing from a simulator of this kind is the ability to create various types of environments – savannah, grassland, rainforest, arctic and so on. The only categories, according to the dinosaur’s needs is forest,grassland, and water. Even the terraforming tools allotted are lacklustre, as they only allow addition or removal of forests or grasslands or addition or removal of water, and a few adjustments to slope elevation. The need for companionship is a decent idea since most dinosaurs, especially the smaller ones, prefer to move together, in packs. However, the concept of dinosaur genders, which could have been done for reproduction, and also cute baby dinosaurs, was lacking. In fact, I was surprised when I clicked on the first Triceratops I hatched – there was nothing to suggest anything remotely close to gender. It may sound extremely weird, but reproduction and the existence of two genders would have added a strategic layer to gameplay. Or maybe the Science Division isn’t so bright to bring back full mating dinosaurs after all. The Triceratops, one of the most durable Jurassic herbivores. Guest Specializations Guest specializations are added to the Park to help the guests get rid of their hard earned money. Toy Shops, Gift Shops, Fast Food Shops, Cloth Shops are some ways to ensure guests spend their money in the Park. Hotels allow guests to stay in the Park for another day, and is an useful way for increasing the guest capacity of the Park. Emergency Shelters help the player contain the guests in case of violent weather or a dino rampage. Or simply construct means of transport,like the Monorail, for your guests to move from one part of the island to another easily. One prominent feature that I would have liked was to check out how each guest was feeling, but there is no way to determine that. You get an aggregated version of their thoughts in the Island Management screen. Shops and Centers attract guests. The Islands The Five Deaths, or the five islands which are marked for the Jurassic World projects, themselves are extremely susceptible to occasional violent weather. Violent weather disturbs the dinosaurs’ mental equilibrium, who cannot quickly escape to artificial shelters because the game doesn’t allow construction of shelters for dinosaurs for some unknown reason. An angry dinosaur is more likely to break out of their enclosure. The islands are also extremely limited in space,limiting the number of exhibits in the Park. This does add a strategic depth to managing creature variety in that small area, but it does limit player freedom. Research The Research Center allows you to research technologies and make dynamic scientific progress. This means that technologies researched on one island carries over to the others. Research new guest specializations, improvements for your ranger and ACU teams, new and better enclosures, new genes for replacing the missing gene data in the dinosaurs, or new ways of treating sick dinosaurs. In order to keep your Park running to maximum capacity, scientific progress is necessary. Without scientific progress, you, as a manager, cannot prevent dinosaurs from dying from unknown diseases, improve their characteristics, or simply find out sneaky ways of ensuring guests spend their money in the Park. Power and Money Everything on the Park needs Power and Money to function. Power Stations and sub stations ensure that power reaches the corners of the island. Power is one of the important resources in Jurassic World : Evolution, as without power, the game kind of comes to a standstill. Electric fences, doors, buildings – everything stop functioning. And a malfunctioning enclosure means a mass dinosaur breakout is just moments away. Money is generated from ticket sales as well as guests’ spending in shops, hotels, etc. Staff payments, research and expedition funding – everything comes from the Park’s fund, so it is necessary to keep a green cashflow at all times, or ensuring that whatever you spend is lesser than whatever your earn. Sadly, the game lacks complexity here too, as it is very easy to maintain a positive balance. Or maybe the tickets are so insanely high priced that every industrialist and superstar in the world decides to blow their monthly savings in the Park. Because most of your revenue comes from ticket sales, anyways. Factions and Contracts There are three Divisions operating in the Jurassic Park – the Science Division, led by Kajal Dua, the Security Division, led by George Lambert, and the Entertainment Division, led by Isaac Clement. Contracts completed for the Divisions increase their respect for you, besides granting you a steady amount of cash and technologies in reward for your efforts. Other Features The game does allow some degree of micromanagement, as you can monitor island finances, the island rating, guest happiness, guest satisfaction with the various aspects of the Jurassic Park in order to react accordingly, and capitalize on their needs to improve the rating of the island. The higher the rating, the better, because it is necessary to progress to the next Island. The Island management screen allows you to monitor the various aspects of the island. You can also see the spread of the power around the sub stations, the revenue generated by each building, as well as expenses through the in-game menu. The map is another viable way to jump to faults which damage the reputation of the park, like an unpowered facility, or an open enclosure, or a sick or dead dinosaur. The micromanagement options are pretty decent, but sadly, there is little to no difficulty in establishing a viable island with a positive cashflow. In my playthrough, there were very few times the cashflow was negative, which also points out the lack of difficulty options for customizing your experience. The game also allows you to take control of the ranger or ACU teams and manually do the work they would do. Tranquilize escaped or rampaging dinosaurs, refill the stocks of food, treat injured or sick dinosaurs, or repair damaged facilities manually. The possibilities are endless. You can also take pictures of dinosaurs, which also adds to your revenue. Graphics and Optimization The game’s graphics is one of the areas where it truly scores. The game is beautifully designed, with realistic foliage as well as building textures. The game has a pretty huge draw distance, which allows you to zoom in close and see what the dinosaurs, your guests, or your staff might be doing. The dinosaurs in particular, are pretty well designed, and their behaviour is well scripted too, making them feel like they’re real dinosaurs. The game truly looks stunning. The game was run on the following system : CPU : AMD FX 8320 GPU : GTX 660 RAM : 6GB DDR3 The game ran without frame drops on medium-high settings, with small drops in high. Considering such a decent framerate on such an old machine, the game is really optimized well. Sound and Music The game’s sounds are pretty realistic, and even better if you experience them using a headset. Hear your chopper carrying out your Expedition team in search of new fossils. Hear the dinosaur’s sounds as they move about in their enclosure. Hear the wheels of the ranger team making their way to refill the automated food trays in the enclosures. Everything feels realistic, like the Jurassic Park films. The game uses the same track as the Jurassic Park films. The track makes you fall in love with the dinosaurs and the Jurassic Park even as you admire how dangerous they might be up close, sharing John Hammond’s passion for bringing them back from extinction. VERDICT The game isn’t really a bad one, but considering the profound lack of features that any mainstream simulation game should have, the price tag isn’t worth it. Definitely worth getting in a sale if you’re a fan of the Jurassic Park series, and of the simulation genre in general, or are trying to get into it. TAGS

Into the Badlands Finale Clip: Chau and the Widow Trade Blades - Zara Basket

SHARE 0 AMC’s Into the Badlands is wrapping up its third season this week, and we’ve got an exclusive clip from the finale teasing an epic battle of the Barons — the Widow vs. Juliet Chau — with a little bonus Gaius sword play in there too. Set in a feudal future after a mysterious apocalyptic event reshaped society, Into the Badland s follows the clans and key players that battle for power in the dynastic hierarchy. The show has been one of the most underrated gems in recent years, packed with killer fight scenes, lavish costuming and production design, and an unconventional mythology that gets wilder and more interesting with each passing season. Created by executive producers, showrunners and writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville), I nto the Badlands stars Daniel Wu , Aramis Knight , Emily Beecham , Orla Brady , Ally Ioannides , Lewis Tan and Nick Frost . The third season comes to a close tonight with ‘Leopard Catches Cloud’ at 10 p.m. on AMC. Get a sneak peek in our exclusive clip below. Here’s the official synopsis for Into the Badlands Season 3: Season three of “Into the Badlands” finds Sunny (Wu) living off the grid, doing his best to provide for his infant son, Henry, in the wake of Veil’s death. It is only when Henry contracts a mysterious illness that Sunny must join forces with Bajie (Frost) and journey back into the Badlands, where The Widow (Beecham) and Baron Chau (Eleanor Matsuura) are entrenched in a drawn-out war that has destabilized the entire region. No longer supported by Tilda (Ioannides) or Waldo (Stephen Lang), The Widow must find new allies in Lydia (Brady) and in Nathaniel Moon (Augustus) — the former regent who lost his hand to Sunny and Bajie in Season 2. But when a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim (Ceesay) arrives in the Badlands on a mission to restore Azra and usher in a new era of “peace,” old enemies must band together to defend the Badlands.

CM KCR at the 4th Meeting of the Governing Council of National Institution for Transforming India

CM KCR at the 4th Meeting of the Governing Council of National Institution for Transforming India 10:15 AM CM KCR's Statement 1. On behalf of the Government and people of Telangana, I take this opportunity to convey my deep sense of gratitude to Hon'ble Prime Minister for inviting us to the fourth meeting of the Governing Council of NITI Aayog in the true spirit of Cooperative Federalism. Since the previous meeting of the Governing Council, several initiatives had been taken up by Government of India at the national level and by my colleague Chief Ministers in their respective States. We have to learn from each other to accelerate the overall pace of development in the country. In this connection, I would like to share some of the initiatives taken up by the State of Telangana with all of you. 2. We have launched a scheme called "Rythu Bandhu" (friends of farmers) providing Rs.4,000/- per acre per crop as agriculture input assistance. As there are more than 98% small and marginal farmers in Telangana, it makes sense to cover all the farmers to avoid unnecessary screening. The scheme also envisages "give it up" provision where farmers can surrender their cheques. I would also like to allay unfounded fears of some that Rythu Bandhu Scheme will distort the financial market. This "agricultural investment assistance scheme" does not distort the credit system, agriculture product prices and cropping pattern etc. 3. Another scheme started by us is "Rythu Bhima Yojana" for all the farmers in the State aged 18 to 60 years with the public sector giant 'LIC" insuring each farmer for Rs.5.00 lakhs in case of his / her unfortunate death due to any reason whatsoever. The State Government bears the insurance premium costing about Rs.1,000/- Crores per annum. Formal launch of this scheme is scheduled on 15th August 2018 covering about 50 lakh farmers. 4. Third most important area of agriculture reform is providing clear title over farm land. We have taken up a massive exercise of purifying the title of over 50 lakhs farm holdings in the State and have given them a Pattaadar Pass Book with embedded 17 security features. We are also planning to integrate registration and mutation process in a seamless manner. I am sure, with the help of express mutation, we would be able to develop a robust mechanism for hassle free land transactions in rural areas. Over a period of time, we would like to usher in similar reforms for urban properties as well. 5. In order to extending a helping hand to farmers we are also making massive investments in irrigation. Kaleshwaram and Palamoor Ranga Reddy Irrigation Projects, on rivers Godavari and Krishna, on completion are going to become the life line of Telangana. These Projects shall provide new irrigation facilities to farmers in over 26 lakh acres and in stabilization of 18 lakh acres in 24 Districts of Telangana. We are setting up new standards in completing various Mega Projects without any time and cost overruns. 6. Another major infrastructure development we have taken up for the overall growth of agriculture sector is construction of 356 agricultural godowns in the past 3 years with a storage capacity of 18.30 lakh MTs at a cost of Rs.1050 Crores. This is in addition to 170 godowns with a capacity of 4.17 lakh MTs storage capacity, and these godowns are distributed throughout the State depending upon potential for usage. This is helping farmers in many ways, like storage of agriculture produce in order to beat market fluctuations, storage of agriculture inputs like fertilizers, seeds etc. 7. I would like to mention that the growth of India lies in the growth of its states. Therefore the fast-growing states must be encouraged by tax incentives, if not by additional transfers from central funds. Further, we need to focus on agriculture and allied activities as an integrated sector and dairy, poultry, goat and sheep rearing, and fisheries should also be exempted from income tax. As a part of the initiatives for doubling the income of farmers, MGNREGA funds should be tagged to agriculture with 50% contribution from farmers to reduce the cost of their investment. 8. As my concluding remarks, I would like to say that the country is facing lots of challenges in the areas of external affairs, defence and macro-economic and global issues. Therefore in the changing global scenario, it should continue to give due attention to those issues and at the same time leave more space to the states in doing work in such sectors as health, education, urban development, agriculture and rural development and also remove the rigidness of certain centrally sponsored schemes that curtail the initiatives of the state government. I wish the meeting of the Governing Council a grand success. -Press note

After Anushka Sharma lashes out on a man for littering publicly, he slams her and Virat Kohli for their TRASHY act - Bollywood Hungama

feedback language follow us on Home » News » Features » After Anushka Sharma lashes out on a man for littering publicly, he slams her and Virat Kohli for their TRASHY act After Anushka Sharma lashes out on a man for littering publicly, he slams her and Virat Kohli for their TRASHY act Bollywood Hungama News Network By Bollywood Hungama News Network Jun 18, 2018 - 10:54 am IST Virat Kohli made Anushka Sharma ’s video viral over the weekend. If you are still living under the rock here’s what happened. Anushka spotted a man throwing garbage on the road and she immediately rolled down her window and lashed out at him for this act. She said, “Why are you throwing garbage on the road? Pls don’t throw garbage on the road. Please be careful. Use a dustbin.” Virat took a video of the same and posted on Twitter. He wrote, “Saw these people throwing garbage on the road & pulled them up rightfully. Travelling in a luxury car and brains gone for a toss. These people will keep our country clean? Yeah right! If you see something wrong happening like this, do the same & spread awareness. @AnushkaSharma”. Anushka’s intentions were right and we applaud her for taking a stand to conserve the environment but the man she trolled does not agree with this. Arhan Singh took to social media to apologise for his ‘carelessness’ but trolled Anushka for her impolite demeanour and lack of social etiquette. He wrote, “Disclaimer: i have no desire to gain any mileage from this post of mine… Horrible! So I happened to carelessly Litter a sq mm of plastic while driving ! A car passing by rolls their window down and there we have our wonderful @anushkasharma ranting and yelling like a crazy roadside person! While I’m apologetic for my carelessness, Mrs Anushka Sharma Kohli a little etiquette and politeness in ur dialogue wouldn’t have made u a lesser star !! There are all kinds of manners and hygiene .. verbal etiquette is one of them !The garbage that mistakenly went out of the window of my “luxury car”… Was way less than the garbage that came out from your mouth… From ur “luxury car’s” window… Or the trashy mind @virat.kohli to shoot and post this online… For whatever gains… Now that’s some serious trash!!!” Not just him, even his mother Gittanjali Elizabeth trolled them for shaming her son publicly and called this act a PR stunt. She wrote an open letter to both and said, “The last thing we would want is to get publicity out of your cheap STUNT in the name of CLEANLINESS! You both posted a video for your fans n followers by VIOLATING Basic Rights to privacy &you shamed my son in the video as well in your post content you both may be who you are in your fields, with millions of followers & all the PR backing you… you may be payed for your campaigning or maybe doing it for sheer publicity As a mother,I would like to state that you have not only shamed my son @arhhansingh on social media by not blurring his face, but youve also exposed him to unwanted hostility…. and danger from fanatics for such a small thing that you claim he has done but have no proof of anyways ? I am concerned about my sons SAFTEY !!! how dare you crush somebody’s image/and morale and reputation and expose him to public hate, a boy who is on the verge of starting his ventures, ..just to prove what good citizens you both are to increase your fan following ?How dare you?? If you both really cared or bothered about cleanliness , then you would actively do something about all the garbage in your own lane.. you would make a noise and use your VOICE to urge the municipal authorities to take action atleast in the lane where you live,to start with, which you haven’t . Posting videos of fake bravado just to fool your followers. If your intention was genuine then you would pull over and politely correct the person for littering IF THEY DID in a decent and real manner… and not by displaying such a rude and arrogant attitude, and then posting it for the world to see! You have caused a lot of grief with your post & this is morally and humanitarianly very wrong. You may be #AnushkaSharma or #viraatkohli in your house or on screen & the field…but on the streets you are just a citizen trying to correct another… DO IT WITH KINDNESS ….fear karma . And just FYI , he did not react badly, not coz of who you both are.. we couldnt care less,but only because he has a decent upbringing ! Unlike people like you, who seem to think that you are the empowered ones to talk and treat people as you wish.” On the work front, Anushka Sharma is about to wrap Sui Dhaaga and will be seen with Shah Rukh Khan in Zero . Saw these people throwing garbage on the road & pulled them up rightfully. Travelling in a luxury car and brains gone for a toss. These people will keep our country clean? Yeah right! If you see something wrong happening like this, do the same & spread awareness. @AnushkaSharma pic.twitter.com/p8flrmcnba
