Jon reunites with Bran after years apart — the last time Jon saw Bran, the young Stark was in a coma after Jaime Lannister pushed him off a window ledge — and introduces Sansa Stark to Daenerys.

So far, though, it looks like Bran will be Game of Thrones’ 2019 meme lord. But he’s got competition. Arya enjoyed reunions with both big brother Jon, friend/enemy The Hound and fellow Fleebottom scumbag Gendry, both of which caused some strong reactions. It was a feelstrip for sure.

HBO Bran isn’t exactly a Game of Thrones favorite. His plot in the fantasy epic has surrounded the esoteric Three-Eyed Raven, who can best be described as an all-knowing tree man. Bran, in season 6, becomes the Three-Eyed Raven and has been an odd little chap ever since.But season 8 could be his redemption story. Not because of anything in the plot, but because the post-premiere memes circulating Twitter and Reddit mostly starred Bran. He wasn’t alone, obviously. Arya’s activities were also meme-worthy, and an unexpected request from Cersei was guaranteed to go viral.Warning: Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers below.Bran’s schtick is that he can see most of history in his mind if directed to it, which is why, in season 7, he knew what Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish had said to Ned Stark after betraying him aaaaaall the way back in season one. In the first episode of season 8 (recap here), Bran spends a lot of the show sitting in Winterfell’s square and staring at people from a distance. He tells Samwell Tarley that he’s waiting for an old friend.The awkwardness was not lost on the internet. Share your voice I present to you..Dr. Dre’s The Next Episode ft.

LNG Project Gets Export Approval

first_imgA federal agency has approved the export of liquefied natural gas from a proposed mega-project in Alaska to free-trade nations.Download AudioThe U.S. Department of Energy said Friday that the automatic approval, which was required by law, should not be read to indicate the department’s views on a still-pending request to export to non-free trade countries, like Japan.Pacific Rim nations such as Japan have been eyed as possible markets for the project, which is being pursued by the state, TransCanada Corp., and the North Slope’s three major energy companies. A final decision on whether to build the project has not been made.Federal pipeline coordinator Larry Persily said more significant than Friday’s order was the relatively little opposition the department received related to the project’s export license application.last_img read more

Fashion of the future

first_imgA recently organized fashion show, ‘Fashion Blazon 2017, held at the Footwear design and development institute (FDDI), evidently proved that future of Indian fashion and styling industry is in safe hands. Amalgamating creativity with contemporary ideas, numerous students of the institute presented self-designed attires, jewellery and footwear. Each and every presentation spoke of the efforts and the innovation put in by the students, who explored the new limits of the fashion world. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfOrganised within the college premises on November 17, the show was attended by renowned designers, fashion industry experts, and officials. Amidst claps and applause, the show opened with the first sequence ‘Marigold, which was entirely inspired by the Maharashtrian culture. The collection beautifully depicted ‘modernity in tradition’. Next in line was a collection around the theme of ‘Yoga’ followed by ‘Valentine special collection’. The glamorous garments, perfect for a romantic evening, totally stole the show. Other presentations based on themes like, ‘Tie and dye’– presenting ancient art majorly used in Rajasthan and Gujarat; ‘Game of Thrones’ – showcasing the inspiring characters from the famous TV show thereby capturing the Westeros feel; ‘Van Gogh’, ‘Silver’, and ‘Madhubani’ themes, were equally innovative. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveGiving a beautiful closure to the fashion show, a collection inspired by the queen of Chittor, Rani Padmavati, was also showcased. The story of valour and sacrifice was depicted via this sequence featuring royal attires of Rajput and Khalji dynasties.Mr Ravinder, Joint Secretary of DIPP graced the occasion as the chief guest. Harpreet Narula, head designer for the upcoming periodic drama Padmavati, was also present at the show. Impressed by the entire showcase, he went on to praise the hard work and efforts put in by the students. FDDI is an apex organisation which has been playing a pivotal role in facilitating the Indian industry by bridging the skill gap in the areas of footwear, leather, retail and management areas. FDDI has been functioning as an interface between the untapped talent and industry and its global counterparts by fulfilling the demand of skilled manpower with its state of art machines and world-class infrastructure.Overwhelmed with amazement, Arun Kumar Sinha, Managing Director, FDDI, congratulated the students for presenting such stupendous collections. “It was a great show considering the efforts of the students. I can see that many of them are quite professional. I loved the way they presented their ideas. When I came here, I had a notion that everything within this campus revolves around footwear designing. But looking at the versatility and the talent, I feel happy.”Speaking further about his plans to take FDDI to new heights, Sinha said, “There are two things which we are aiming at. Firstly, we are trying to bring more designers to the institute so that our students can learn from the professionals. Secondly, we want to provide better exposure by stepping out of the institute. This would help them get firsthand experience in designing, styling, and management. In the words of Aakriti Choudhry – a student who designed two of the garments for the show (one of which was inspired by the petals of the rose) – FDDI is the best platform for anyone who is enthusiastic about fashion or anything related to this industry. “This college is the perfect place to learn new things. It gave us innumerable opportunities to go places and learn, not just through words and teachings within the four walls of the classroom but through experiences. They also provide us with opportunities to go and attend events like the Amazon fashion week and other fashion events of the sort. Not every person wants to get into core designing like I want to be. The college faculty and the staff help us figure out what are we meant to do. I am really happy to be a part of this college and the event as well. Every designer has put in a lot of effort to make it a success.”last_img read more

Commission says additional tourist ferry fee to Cozumel will not be applied

first_imgEmiliano Ramos Hernández, president of the Finance Commission defended the charge, which is similar to the one applied in Isla Mujeres, indicating that the municipality require resources, noting that the charge was aimed at tourists, not local citizens.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window) The decision, says deputy Fernando Zelaya, was made after objections by the ferry companies who claimed the collection of the fee was unconstitutional, a claim later confirmed by deputy Jesus Zetina Tejero. He explained that Cozumel will only be able to charge the new Right to Sanitation fee through hotels, however, non-residents crossing to Isla Mujeres will still be charged the crossing fee. Cozumel, Q.R. — The announcement of an additional 16 peso fee to non-residents to use the ferry service from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel will not be applied. The ruling was announced by local deputies of the Finance and Municipal Affairs Commission, for which they say, Cozumel will only charge this Right to Sanitation fee in hotels, the same as in other municipalities. Zelaya noted that while Isla Mujeres tourists cross because they already have hotel reservations or a package purchased, in the case of Cozumel, visitors to the island are those who have arrived in Riviera Maya and are attracted to the island. He says they just decide to go and are more fickle toward an additional charge. The new fee, which was supposed to take effect January 1, has not been approved for the Playa del Carmen-Cozumel ferry crossing. last_img read more

Deutsche Banks decade old faulty software may have stopped it from reporting

first_imgOn Wednesday, Germany’s biggest bank, Deutsche Bank, shared that it has found a bug in its decade old software that it has using for flagging suspicious transactions. This news came out just a day ahead of the bank’s annual shareholders meeting held on May 23. According to a Deutsche Bank spokesman the faulty software was one of the many anti-financial crime systems that the bank uses. The glitch happened because two of 121 parameters in the software were not defined accurately. It was detected when employees from the bank’s anti-financial crime unit started working on improving the bank’s internal processes last year. In a statement the bank said, “Deutsche Bank is working on correcting the error as quickly as possible and is in close contact with the regulators.” This news has further dealt a major blow to the bank’s reputation as it is already facing several accusations regarding its involvement in money laundering. On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that during 2016-2017, the bank’s executives were informed by its anti-laundering-specialists about several suspicious transactions. These transactions, which also involved Donald J. Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, were first flagged by a computer system. Despite these reports, the bank refused to take any action. “Compliance staff members who then reviewed the transactions prepared so-called suspicious activity reports that they believed should be sent to a unit of the Treasury Department that polices financial crimes. But executives at Deutsche Bank, which has lent billions of dollars to the Trump and Kushner companies, rejected their employees’ advice,” wrote The New York Times in its report. Following these news, the bank’s share price reached a new record low on Thursday morning and needless to say, this left its shareholders unimpressed. At the bank’s Annual General Meeting, Christian Sewing, the Deutsche Bank chief executive, faced discontent of the shareholders regarding the bank’s top management. He has now promised to improve the bank’s internal controls and is planning to “make tough cutbacks” to reverse the damages. Addressing the investors, Sewing said, “We will accelerate transformation by rigorously focusing our bank on profitable and growing businesses which are particularly relevant to our clients.” Read the full story on The New York Times.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

Harry is a possible pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (AP Photo/Darron Cummings, File) “I’ve met with them twice,” Harry said on Wednesday. “I actually had, I went into the facility on the local day and I had a private workout. The workout went extremely well. I think I surprised a lot of the higher-ups in the organization. So I’m pretty confident going into draft day.Related LinksASU’s Edwards: N’Keal Harry’s NFL Draft comp is Dez BryantA look at all the reported NFL Draft visits for ASU’s N’Keal HarryBusy weekend for Harry capped off by visit with family ahead of NFL DraftFitzgerald: Cardinals say ASU’s Harry reminded them of Anquan Boldin“Obviously my main goal is to be a first-round pick, to be a first-day pick. But if, for whatever reason, I do end up slipping to the second round, I don’t see myself slipping past 33. So if I do slip out the first round, I would be excited to be an Arizona Cardinal, and that’s where I would see myself going if I didn’t get picked on day one.”When asked if he was guaranteed he’d be selected at 33, Harry declined to go that far.“I can’t really say too much, but you know, just from the workout I had … I feel like I really turned some heads in the organization,” he said. “In my opinion, I think there’s no way I fall past 33.”When asked to clarify if his comments were based on conversation he had with the team, Harry answered in the affirmative.“Correct, “he said. “And just because I know what I did during the private workout. I know the kind of performance I put on. And I’m from Arizona. Honestly, I’m about 95% sure if I’m there at 33 and they’re still at that pick, they’re going to pick me up.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments   Share   center_img Arizona State wide receiver N’Keal Harry is one of the more intriguing pass-catching prospects in this year’s NFL Draft, which gets underway on Thursday.But fans of the Arizona Cardinals might put extra stock in Harry, whom they watched play three seasons for the Sun Devils as a first-team All-Pac-12 selection and record almost 3,000 receiving yards in three seasons.If Harry is there when the Cardinals pick at No. 33, they may get to keep watching the Chandler High School product make big plays in the Valley. At least that’s what the man himself told Burns & Gambo on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo On Monday, current Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said he also heard that Harry’s workout with the Cardinals went well.“I love the young man,” Fitzgerald said. “I heard he had a fantastic workout on Saturday. He looked explosive, I heard somebody in the building say they reminded him a lot of Anquan Boldin with how strong he is to the catch and the way he is able to run routes and his physical presence he brings.“I followed him since he was in high school, I followed him obviously in college and have admired him from a distance. Wherever he lands he’s going to be a great attribute to whatever organization he ends up falling in the hands of.”Based on what some draft pundits have offered, Harry could be selected right around where the Cardinals happen to possess their second-round pick. General manager Steve Keim, if he were to take Harry at No. 33, would be picking an Arizona-grown wide receiver in the second round for the second year in a row. Last year, he took Saguaro High School product Christian Kirk.“N’Keal is a big man who can do a lot of different things for you,” Keim said last week. “One thing that excites me about him is his ability to run after the catch. For a big, long athlete, he’s got unique skills after the catch, as well as tracking and adjusting to the football down the field.” Top Stories last_img read more

The broad backlash against pop-rockers Hedley has been swift and stunning in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations that emerged online. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chris Young Five things to know about Hedley in the wake of misconduct allegationscenter_img TORONTO – The broad backlash against pop-rockers Hedley has been swift and stunning in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations that emerged online.The band has said the claims are unsubstantiated but the group acknowledges that they have “engaged in a lifestyle that incorporated certain rock ‘n’ roll cliches.”Once considered Canadian music darlings, the quartet of Jacob Hoggard, Dave Rosin, Tommy Mac and Jay Benison are now weathering intense scrutiny into their off-stage antics.Here are five things to know about the band:1. They had a “bad boy” image from the startThe band rose to fame after the “Canadian Idol” appearance by frontman Hoggard, who parlayed outrageous performances on the CTV reality show into a chart-topping music career with his rambunctious pop-punk bandmates. Red carpet appearances routinely involved suggestive comments or bleeped expletives and their personas seemed to cater directly to their substantial teen following, many of them female.2. “Canadian Idol”For many the band is still synonymous with this CTV reality smash, thanks in large part to the indelible images Hoggard ingrained as the breakout star of its sophomore season. There was the time Hoggard wore a shiny electric blue unitard to belt David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” and he gave host Ben Mulroney a wet willy in the ear following his take on Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown.” Then there was his eager willingness to bend over and pretend to pick up something off the floor while wearing skin-tight pants. The audience shrieked approval every time.3. TV darlingsWith their exuberant frontman and his over-the top personality, it didn’t take long for Hedley to become a music video favourite and staple booking on Canadian TV awards shows. The band had been a mainstay on broadcasts including the MuchMusic Video Awards and the Junos — he even hosted the show in 2015. The tattooed, eyeliner-adorned and lip-pierced Hoggard could always be counted on to push broadcast standards with a pair of short-shorts or an obscene gesture.4. Before the fameThe band began in Abbotsford, B.C., in 2003 and originally consisted of Hoggard with Kevin Giesbrecht, Kevin Heeres, Ryan Federau and Brandon McKay. The band broke up shortly after Hoggard’s “Idol” run, only to reform with all-new members, save for Hoggard.5. “Cageless”The band is currently in the midst of a cross-Canada tour in support of their latest album “Cageless.” It extends through March 23, when it wraps in Kelowna, B.C. Halifax-based band Neon Dreams said Friday it is dropping out as an opener, while Shawn Hook has decided to stay on the tour as a supporting act.last_img read more

first_imgTalking abstractly about new strategies,  a Plan B or the notion of a two-state solution for Cyprus secures neither the conditions for peace, nor the well-being of Greek Cypriots, President Nicos Anastasiades said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian New Agency on Saturday.The interview was conducted in the run-up to the first round of elections on January 28, and the president was asked to comment on a statement made to Phileleftheros newspaper in November, where he said: “It is necessary to have an honest discussion with the political powers, so we can see what ‘plan B’ is.”Regarding ‘plan B’ and asked about a ‘two-state’ solution with the return of some territory to the Greek Cypriot side, Anastasiades said: “This is simply and answer to all those who refer to a plan B, new strategies, and an unspecified repositioning of the Cyprus problem, without making clear what they mean, or if they mean anything.  Talking abstractly about other plans and solutions, secures neither conditions for peace, nor the Greek Cypriots, or the functioning of the state.”He said his objective, as it was with all of his predecessors was a bizonal bicommunal federation (BBF).“For there to be a Cyprus solution, it is necessary to have the positive cooperation and contribution of Turkey.  At Crans-Montana we did not settle, not because of Mr Akinci’s stance, or due to our relationship, but due to the negative stance Ankara had on the crucial issue of security and guarantees,” he said.Commenting on the elections and the polls, which have shown him to be in the lead, Anastasiades said that there are “no easy elections” and he has not been swayed by his position in the lead.Regarding criticism from the political opposition that he denied a meeting with the five permanent UN Security Council members, Anastasiades said that he has no reason to reject an International Conference on Cyprus with the participation on the five permanent members of the Security Council.  “Quite the opposite, I am making every effort, with the objective being that through the participation of the five permanent members of the Security Council, there will be such an influence on Ankara, that they will understand that a solution to the Cyprus problem will be to the benefit of the Cypriot people, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, and to Turkey as well.”Asked why he didn’t move forward on negotiating a demarcation with Greece on an exclusive economic zone (EEZ), the President said that Cyprus has to demarcate its EEZ with three neighbouring countries, Turkey, Syria, and Greece.  He added that Turkey and Syria were “not in a position today, to negotiate the EEZ with the Republic of Cyprus.”  Regarding Greece, he said that the two countries were in close cooperation and working together.Regarding the ‘haircut’ in 2013 and a statement from the former Eurogroup President, Jeroen Djisselbloem that Cyprus proposed the haircut, Anastasiades said that it was an agreement made between the former government and the troika.  He added that his government had proposed a one-off tax on deposits, which corresponded to bank interest of between 18 and 22 months, but this had been rejected by parliament, he said.  The president said a week later MPs turned around accepted the haircut, which was far worse.You May LikeFreedom Debt ReliefPeople In Heavy CC Debt Are In For Big SurpriseFreedom Debt ReliefUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
