first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement The film’s producer J. Miles Dale reveals why Toronto has become the helmer’s home base and what del Toro might be working on next.The Baltimore of 1962 is meticulously re-created in Guillermo del Toro’s multi-Oscar-nominated sci-fi romance, The Shape of Water. From an iconic, neon-lit diner to an ornate movie theater, the film revels in Americana from another age, making the fact that it was shot in and around Toronto all the more impressive. The film marks del Toro’s third collaboration with producer — and Toronto native J. Miles Dale and is the director’s fourth consecutive feature to be shot in Canada. Dale talked to THR about why the Mexican auteur now calls Toronto home and the Oscar odds for Shape of Water.Toronto hosted shoots for earlier Oscar best picture winners like Chicago and Spotlight.

Door is open for India to bring serious trade plan to table

smgzehobt

first_imgWashington: Observing that trade has been an area of frustration in bilateral ties, the US has said that the door is open if India is prepared to bring a serious proposal to the table to address the issues related to trade and market access.The US in November last year revoked duty-free concessions on import of at least 50 Indian products, mostly from handloom and agriculture sectors, reflecting the Trump administration’s tough stand on trade-related issues with New Delhi. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to CustomsA senior State Department official said Friday that the US is proud to be India’s largest export market and most important economic partner. “But we have struggled with regulatory issues that get in the way of the ease of doing business and market access for American companies and products,” said the official. “Trade has frankly been an area of frustration in the relationship, but the door is open if India is prepared to bring a serious proposal to the table,” he said. Despite intensive engagement with the Government of India for nearly a year, India did not assure the US that it would provide equitable and reasonable access to its market, which led to its termination from the Generalised System of Preferences programme, the official said.

During the just concluded visit of the Foreign Secretary, while the focus was on strategic, defence and regional issues, in particular Pakistan and Afghanistan, but the visiting diplomat is believed to have been conveyed that the ball is in India’s court on resolving the trade related issues. The US is understood to have told India that the Trump administration is willing to review its decision to revoke its GSP privileges to India, if New Delhi comes with a credible proposal to address the market access issues that America has been talking about for nearly a year. The GSP notification is still within the 60 days period, after which the benefits would formally be withdrawn, it is reliably learnt that the US has told India that it is not too late. But it is unlikely to happen, given that India is now into an election campaign mode, officials on both sides said. While India argues that it is difficult to take any policy decision at this point of time because of the elections and the model code of conduct, American points out that it has decided to take its decision on revoking GSP privileges only after it exhausted all its options with India. During talks with India, America is believed to have said that “there are creative ways of solving” all the trade related issues that addressed concerns of both the countries.last_img read more

Oil hits 5month high above 71 on Libyan supply threat worries

smgzehobt

first_imgLONDON: Oil hit a five-month high above $71 a barrel on Tuesday, supported by concern that violence in Libya could further tighten supply, although Russian comments signalling willingness to pump more dampened the rally. Supply curbs led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries have underpinned a more than 30 per cent rally this year for Brent crude, despite downward pressure from fears of an economic slowdown and weaker demand. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalBrent, the global benchmark, rose to $71.34 a barrel, the highest since November, and by 1046 GMT or 4:16 pm IST was down 3 cents at $71.07. US crude also hit a November 2018 high of $64.79 and was later up 6 cents at $64.46. “The mood is increasingly turning bullish, but several feedback loops are about to start spinning that stand in the way of a prolonged oil rally,” said Norbert Ruecker of Swiss bank Julius Baer. “Russia already signalled its willingness to raise oil output from June. Fuel remains costly in emerging markets, with soft currencies adding to high oil prices.” Russia, a participant in the OPEC-led supply cuts that currently expire in June, signalled on Monday it wanted to raise output when it meets with OPEC because of falling stockpiles. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostEnergy Minister Alexander Novak said on Tuesday there would be no need to extend the supply-curbing deal if the market was expected to be balanced in the second half of the year. US sanctions on Iran and Venezuela have deepened the OPEC supply cut and concern has grown this week about the stability of Libyan output. The OPEC member pumps around 1.1 million barrels per day (bpd), just over 1 per cent of global supply. “The oil market is already undersupplied, so if supply from Libya also falls away the supply deficit will become even bigger,” said Carsten Fritsch, oil analyst at Commerzbank. On Monday, a warplane attacked Tripoli’s only functioning airport as eastern forces advancing on the Libyan capital disregarded international appeals for a truce. Yet despite generally bullish sentiment, concerns that an economic slowdown this year will hit fuel consumption have been preventing crude prices from rising even higher, traders said. Recent increases in US crude inventories have also put a lid on gains. US crude stocks are forecast to have risen by 2.5 million barrels last week, the third straight weekly addition. The American Petroleum Institute, an industry group, issues its supply report at 2030 GMT, ahead of Wednesday’s official figures.last_img read more

Algerian Politician We Dont Understand the Silence on Moroccos Proposal

smgzehobt

Rabat – The secretary-general of Algeria’s Workers Party Louisa Hanoune has said that she does not understand why her country remains silent on Morocco’s dialogue offer.Quoted by TSA, Hanoune said, “the King of Morocco has issued an invitation for a dialogue without conditions or taboos with the Algerian authorities.”“We did not understand, up to now, the silence of the Algerian diplomatic corps,” she said. While acknowledging that it was a different subject, she approved of Algeria’s request for an emergency meeting of the Arab Maghreb Union(AMU) foreign affairs ministers, saying it “is good.”Hanoune said the AMU meeting would be about “only the AMU, but about opening a dialogue between the leaders of the two countries.”Read Also: US Official: Algeria-Morocco Dialogue Key to Regional StabilityShe added that the Algerian diplomatic corps has made everyone in Algeria “accustomed” to “respond, with force, to all situations in the past.”It has been nearly one month since King Mohammed VI announced Morocco’s dialogue offer to Algeria on Green March Day, November 6, inviting Algeria to engage in a frank and direct dialogue to normalize diplomatic bonds with its neighbor.Up to this point, Algeria has not officially responded to Rabat’s offer. Morocco’s eastern neighbour only issued the statement requesting a meeting of the AMU’s foreign affairs ministers. Rabat said that Algeria’s indirect response was unrelated to the royal initiative, saying that Morocco wants to get an official response from Algeria.Read Also: Algeria: King Mohammed VI’s Dialogue Offer is ‘Questionable’In response to Algeria’s AMU invitation, Morocco’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the state of “lethargy that the AMU has known for years, is mainly due to the abnormal nature of Moroccan-Algerian relations, which can be treated only in the framework of a bilateral dialogue, direct and without intermediaries.”The ministry said that Morocco is for the meeting of the AMU, but the government still wants to receive a more official response from Algeria. read more

The Witcher 3 dev studio wont be able to play its own

smgzehobt

first_imgAs you may have heard by now, Microsoft’s E3 could have gone better, and its policies for the Xbox One could be significantly improved. Though the Xbox One will be releasing in 21 territories at launch, certain territories — like Poland — won’t be one of them.During the E3 conference, amidst the avalanche of space marines and regular marines, Microsoft featured The Witcher 3, the upcoming sequel to one of the PC gaming audience’s most touted, hardcore series. Microsoft clearly felt the game was an important part of the next Xbox, but funnily enough, the developer of the game, CD Projekt Red, wouldn’t be able to play its own game if it were just a normal consumer, thanks to one of Microsoft’s many head-scratching new policies.We know the Xbox One will be region-locked. We also know that certain areas of the world won’t be getting it at launch. Furthermore, you cannot distribute or activate (via the new online activation policy) a game in certain territories at launch. This list from an official Xbox One FAQ shows that Poland is absent from the Xbox Live supported countries. If you can’t log into Xbox Live, you can’t activate a game, which means you can’t play it.CD Projekt Red is a Polish developer, which means the team is from an area where the Xbox One will not release at launch. Thanks to the combination of region-locking, online activation, and limited availability, if CD Projekt even imported a console from another territory, the team wouldn’t be able to activate it online seeing as how — it seems — online functionality will be prohibited if doing so from a country not on the above list.So, unless there’s some kind of loophole (aside from being a developer with access to things), a development studio wouldn’t be able to play its own game on the console that featured that game at E3 as a major selling point. Good policy.last_img read more

Olly Curtis/Future Publishing via Getty Images Google shot down a report that it’s in talks to help create a fourth US wireless carrier with TV provider Dish Network, using assets acquired from T-Mobile. The New York Post reported Sunday that Alphabet director Alan Mulally has been part of the talks.”These claims are simply false,” a spokesperson wrote in an emailed statement. “Google is not having any conversations with Dish about creating a wireless network.”The report came as T-Mobile works to get the Justice Department to approve its $26 billion bid to buy Sprint, a deal Dish has been on the periphery of.Dish declined comment.First published at 5:32 a.m. PT.Updated at 8:32 a.m. PT: Adds that Dish declined comment. 3 Tags Angela Lang/CNET Samsung, LG, Motorola: How soon can we expect 5G phones?

Its information and content is targeted to the audience of Alliance travellers, who regularly fly on more than one of the Alliance’s 28 member airlines.“We have responded to the fact that more and more customers want to have the latest information at their fingertips, wherever they are,” said Star Alliance’s Vice President for Customer Experience and Information Technology Justin Erbacci.“The new site allows us to bring more tailored information to Alliance customers, so extending and complementing the information offered by each of our member airline’s own web presence.”Selecting “flight search” allows the visitor to scan the schedules of all 28 member airlines, serving over 1,300 airports worldwide, to find connections that best meet their travel needs.
