first_img Facebook Advertisement By Raju Mudhar Twitter His act often mixes live sampling and beatboxing, along with plenty of punchlines.He’s definitely a polymath, who is also an actor, and currently the bandleader on The Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS. Reggie Watts performs at the Sony Centre on Sept. 29. (VIA JFL42.COM) “Maybe some people go, ‘He’s a comedian,’ but now that I do The Late Late Show, ‘He’s also a musician.’“Ultimately it just comes down to, ‘Oh this person is just a creative person,’ and could do comedy, could do music, could do theatre, could do videos, could do whatever,” he says.“But also, I just like it when people are confused and surprised. Look, it is continually a surprise to me: ‘Oh wow, this works.’ Like it gets you places.”One of the biggest changes for Watts in taking The Late Late Show gig has meant he has stopped constantly touring — resulting in a physical transformation. He has lost more than 60 pounds and packed on 20 pounds of muscle.“It’s a goal I had for a very long time and just because of touring, it was very difficult to achieve it on a willpower front. But I took the gig for The Late Late Show, and half the reason I took that gig was that I wouldn’t have an excuse to really not be in shape anymore,” he says.“It’s great to accomplish that goal, it was something I wanted to do for a very, very long time.”Watts says he’s currently shopping another comedy special. Asked about the state of the standup industry, he sees good and bad in the platforms that are focusing on it.“It’s interesting, because Netflix has triggered a response in a few other entities, as far as buying comedy specials, like in Amazon and Apple, and Hulu and a few others.“They continue to do what they do with their original programming, which is just put out as much as possible. Like, it’s great having a lot of standup specials, but when you have a glut, sometimes it can be confusing. At the same time, it’s nice to see a lot of voices getting out there. It’s a weird time.”He likes the fact that there is more diversity in comedians. One of his favourites: Baroness Von Sketch, the lauded all-female troupe on CBC.“I think they are great. The world that they see is through their lens, in a specific way that’s refreshing because no one else has that voice,” he says.You could say the exact same thing about him. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Login/Register With: There is a small club of people who get the chance to be a bandleader on a late-night talk show. But among them, Reggie Watts is probably the most unique.Watts, who comes to town as one of the headliners on Sept. 29 as part of the JFL42 comedy festival, is obviously very musical.But he has also been working as a comedian for years, mining what he variously describes as an “absurd,” “nerdy” and “silly” vein of comedy. He appeared for years on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast and TV show, and recently recorded and released an electronic music album in collaboration with John Tejada, under the band name Wajatta.It’s that project that has him excited to try out something cutting edge for what’s he doing next.“I am getting ready for a music video for my music project, which I did with John Tejada. We’re shooting it in Intel’s large-scale volumetric capture lab, which you can just go in and move around, and it’s all captured, and turned into whatever (augmented or virtual reality) you want it to. So we’re going to make the first music video using that technology.”Watts first hit some Toronto fans’ radar in 2010, when he opened at Massey Hall for Conan O’Brien, when the latter left NBC’s Tonight Show on bad terms and went on his Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour.But the musical nature of much of what he does has meant you may have seen him here on a North by Northeast festival stage or as part of the Toronto Jazz Festival.Now he’s a JFL42 headliner performing on Saturday at the Sony Centre — and being interviewed about his distinctive sort of creativity earlier that day as part of the festival’s parallel ComedyCon lineup of chats and podcast tapings.Watts says he has got to the point where his mix of music and comedy doesn’t have to be explained to the audience as it once was, and his continued success shows that it is working.

No national tracking system in place as numbers of Indigenous women who


first_imgAshley Brandson, Martha Troian APTN News When the RCMP announced in 2014 that they had compiled a list of 1,181 missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada, it marked the first time such a comprehensive police report dedicated to the tragedy had ever been completed.Almost 5 years later, the number of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls has only continued to climb but there are no plans for another study.“I think this country is not fully acknowledging what is going on to do with Indigenous women and girls,” said Sheila North, an advocate and a former grand chief of a Manitoba political organization.“There should be a way to keep track of what’s going on because the longer that we deny the truth, the longer it’s going to take to fix what’s going on.”Despite this, it’s unlikely that another major statistical report dealing with the tragedy will be conducted, let alone an active database to track every case.RCMP report a ‘special project’Initiated in 2013 by the RCMP, the national police service worked in conjunction with 300 policing agencies and Statistics Canada to create the report, ‘‘Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women: A National Operational Overview.’The report revealed 1,017 homicide victims and 164 missing Indigenous women and girls spanning from 1980 to 2012.It also showed that Indigenous women and girls were more prone to violent deaths compared to non-Indigenous women, and similar to other female homicides, most victims knew their perpetrators and most homicides were committed by men.Read: 1,186 murdered and missing women over past 30 years: RCMP(Janice Armstrong, the RCMP’s deputy commissioner for contract and Aboriginal policing announcing the RCMP-led report in May 2014)It was seen as a ground breaking report and garnered national attention.However, in an email statement Cpl. Caroline Duval with the RCMP National Communications Services wrote, “The 2014 Overview was a special project” and that “The RCMP is not mandated nor funded to conduct statistical research of this kind” and stated further data on homicides of Indigenous women to consult Statistics Canada.(Lorilee Francis is just one case from the RCMP’s Canada’s Missing site.

If they have funds for anything else, why can’t they have funds for this?” said Rourke.“We need to remember these women and girls, we can’t forget them.”Rourke also feels it’s important to know the precise number of cases.Francyn Joe, president of the Native Women’s Association of Canada believes the number of cases was always higher than the RCMP count.In an email statement Joe wrote, “They say a lot of crime goes unreported, Indigenous identity may be unknown and historically cases weren’t always taken seriously by police.”Though the organization once researched and maintained a database of cases in its Sister in Spirit initiative, Joe confirmed that’s no longer the case.An inquiry, yet no one keeping trackThe national inquiry into missing and murdered women and girls cannot provide a clear number either.“It’s difficult to come to a definitive number of MMIWG in Canada, as police services across the country have different methods of identifying who’s Indigenous, or who is murdered and missing,” said communications lead Catherine Kloczkowski.(Commissioners at the institutional hearings on police policies and practices in June 2018 in Regina, Saskatchewan)After years of not being on former Conservative leader Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s radar, in December 2015 the Liberal government finally launched a national inquiry.Led by four commissioners, the inquiry has gathered more than 2,300 statements from family members and survivors of violence since March 2017.(The AFN asserts we need better data collection and analysis when it comes to violence against Indigenous women and girls)The Assembly of First Nations are also not maintaining a national database.In an email statement National Chief Perry Bellegarde with the Assembly of First Nations wrote, “Law enforcement agencies across the country must develop coordinated and reliable methods of data collection respectful of women, girls, LGBTQ2S and all First Nations.”Outside the RCMP numbers, many advocates have suggested the number can be as high as 3,000 to 4,000 cases.MMIWG Inquiry report due next monthIn April, the inquiry will be releasing its long-awaited final report.In November 2017, the inquiry released its interim report citing a national police task force to be able to reopen cases especially for family members who might feel dissatisfied with the level of investigation into their loved one’s case.Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba is just one community grappling not only from multiple cases, APTN confirmed 20 cases in total, but with many family members who have expressed police failure.Read: First Nation counts nearly two dozen missing and murdered women(Danielle Twoheart, 26, died after falling from a three-story balcony in the Caribbean in February 2019.

Kohli not shrewd franchise skipper cant be compared to Dhoni Rohit


first_imgNew Delhi: Virat Kohli is not a “shrewd captain” who could be compared to his national team deputy Rohit Sharma or former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who have won three IPL titles each, feels former KKR captain Gautam Gambhir. The former India opener, who led Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL trophies in 2012 and 2014, feels that in result oriented franchise environment, Kohli has been “lucky” to have survived despite Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) never winning the coveted title in his eight years as skipper. “I don’t see him as a shrewd captain. I don’t see him as a tactful captain (tactician). And he hasn’t won the IPL. So ultimately, a captain is only as good as his record,” Gambhir told on host broadcasters’ ‘Star Sports’ show ‘GamePlan’. Gambhir’s comments is specific to Kohli’s success as a leader in IPL since he is the first captain who has led India to a Test series win on Australian soil. “There are people who have won the trophy three times. MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. So I think he has a long way to go. You cannot compare him to someone like Rohit or Dhoni at this stage,” Gambhir said. “He has been a part of RCB, and captaining RCB for the last seven to eight years, and he has been very lucky and should be thanking the franchise that they stuck with him. Because not many captains have got such a long rope where they haven’t won a tournament,” said Gambhir, who had to part ways with KKR in 2018 after seven long years and two titles.last_img read more

18yearold man charged with murder in La Jolla house party shooting


first_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – An 18-year-old man was charged Monday with murder and other felonies stemming from a drive-by shooting that killed a woman and injured three others at a La Jolla house party last month.Odyssey Carillo-Sellers is accused in the June 23 shooting death of Nina Silver, who was struck while standing in an alley in the 7500 block of Cuvier Street.Among the survivors, one suffered life-threatening injuries to his upper body, according to Deputy District Attorney Ted Fiorito, who said another victim was shot in the jaw and the third was treated for a gunshot wound to an arm.The prosecutor said the party was intended to be a small affair, but drew a large number of uninvited guests, including the defendant.Fiorito said an argument sparked the 12:30 a.m. shooting, which sent “a volley of nine rounds” into a crowd of people.San Diego police said a light-colored sedan drove north in the alley and an occupant fired several rounds at the victims.Fiorito declined to comment on whether there were any outstanding suspects or whether Carrillo-Sellers was believed to be the shooter and/or the driver of the vehicle.He was arrested last Wednesday following a high-speed police pursuit. Fiorito said the defendant threw unspecified evidence out of the car window during the chase, but declined to elaborate.In addition to murder, Carrillo-Sellers faces three counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm and one count each of being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm and evading arrest.He’s being held without bail and is due back in court Friday for a status conference.Nina Silver (pictured), was struck while standing in an alley in the 7500 block of Cuvier Street.

Students teachers and extended absences at the Haines School


first_imgHaines school (Photo: KHNS)It’s pretty common for residents of rural Alaska to head south for some time in the winter. For a few weeks, a month, or more. In some cases, students become part of that tradition. The question of how to deal with extended school absences came up recently in Haines.Listen nowThere are a lot of reasons people leave Haines in the winter – for seasonal jobs, different family situations, and vacations to name a few. When a student is involved, leaving for a long period of time becomes a little more complicated.Leslie Ross’ fifth grade daughter is one of those students. Ross and her spouse work in different communities and that’s led to Ross’s daughter taking extended absences from school for the last three years. This year she will spend at least two months out of town.“Before she left we sat down with the teachers and got an estimate of what they’re going to do for the next two months,” Ross said.Over the years, Ross says the process for how her family deals with her daughter’s absence has changed. Right now, she’s not actually enrolled in the Haines School. But, she’s still learning.“She’s learning, she’s good, she’s doing home school, it’s just we’re not on a home school program. But yeah, she’s – and you know it’s a different way of learning but when she gets back we’ll sit down with the teachers and make sure that she’s up do date with everything and didn’t fall behind,” Ross said.Ross said there are also important educational experiences that happen outside of the school building.“Our reasoning for doing it is because of our family situation,” Ross said. “It’s not to go on vacations. Although, when you’re out of school you do get to experience – she’s done some amazing things like river trips and things like that.”Patty Brown teaches elementary math and science at the Haines School. She sent a letter to the school board earlier this month titled “Planned Absences: Impeding Success.” In it she talks about the challenges of extended absences for both students and teachers. She spoke about the issue at a recent school board meeting.“While I certainly value travel, family time and novel experiences as an enrichment to anyone’s life, I think there’s a reason our school year is as long as it is,” Brown said.In the letter, Brown said lengthy absences impact school climate, teacher workload, and overall learning. She said she’s talked to other teachers who feel some of the same pressures that she’s addressed.“It just feels a little bit like we’re backsliding when some of those kids miss weeks and weeks,” Brown said. “I don’t mean even like one week, but weeks and in more than one year – multiple years in a row.”High school science teacher Mark Fontenot spoke up at the meeting too. He agreed that it’s not an easy situation, but something he’s learned to deal with.“I think in a nutshell it’s just part of the deal living where we do,” Fontenot says. “It’s been a frustration for me since I started here. When anyone asks me what the hardest part of teaching in Haines is, it’s the number of days missed, it’s the number of absences.”Fontenot spoke mostly from the perspective of a teacher, but did say his own child takes extended absences. He said while he feels educational progress can be affected by long absences, he wouldn’t want to see any hard policy implemented.“The results might be really catastrophic,” Fontenot said. “I think we could lose more students to home school. I think it could drive parents to choose home school or un-school options or to move elsewhere.”Brown didn’t suggest implementing a significant policy change that would limit absences. Her letter focuses on ways to encourage better attendance.When Ross’ daughter gets back to town, she’ll re-enroll. Ross says keeping her daughter in school in Haines is important. So, despite challenges want to try to make it work.“Both the principal and vice principal and the teachers have been really good working with us,” say Ross. “It would be really good to, especially with our enrollment dropping in the school, try to figure out how we can accommodate these alternative families and alternative ways of enrolling in school.”Accommodating families may be especially important for the school district now. Enrollment is the lowest it’s been since the 1950s.last_img read more

IndiGo Buys 250 More Airbus Aircraft Deal Pegged at 25 Billion


first_imgBudget airline IndiGo said on Monday that it has finalised a pact with global aerospace major Airbus for the purchase of 250 A320neo aircraft. The deal is expected to be worth a little over $25 billion.”We have firmed up the order for the 250 A320neo by entering into the purchase agreement. This follows the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which we had entered with Airbus earlier,” IndiGo president Aditya Ghosh told IANS.According to Ghosh, the order reaffirms the airline’s commitment to the long-term development of affordable air transportation in India and overseas.”India is one of the largest markets in the world, however it has one of the lowest aircraft penetration. We foresee a robust demand in India and by placing this order, we are clearly charting out our growth strategy for the coming years,” Ghosh added.The purchase agreement was signed on the 69th Independence Day on August 15, 2015.IndiGo, which is the largest individual airline in India in terms of domestic market share, had placed an order for 100 A320s in 2005 and 180 A320neo in 2011. With Monday’s announcement, IndiGo has placed a total order of 530 A320 family aircraft.”It fills us with pride that IndiGo, India’s largest airline and one of the early launch customers for the A320neo, is coming back for more of our benchmark aircraft,” John Leahy, chief operating officer customers of Airbus, said in a statement.The Neo has many innovations, including latest generation engines and large Sharklet wing-tip devices to deliver 15 percent in fuel savings, the statement said. This is equivalent to a reduction of 5,000 tonnes of CO2 per aircraft per year.Currently, the airline operates 97 A320 aircraft. As of April 30, 2015, the carrier offered 593 daily flights connecting 33 domestic airports. It also operates to five ovserseas destinations–Bangkok, Dubai, Kathmandu, Muscat and Singapore.The airline had a market share of 33.8 percent of domestic passenger volume for financial year 2014-15.The A320 family is said to be the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft with over 11,800 orders to date and more than 6,600 aircraft delivered so far to 400 customers and operators worldwide.last_img read more

Persona 5 on Nintendo Switch Isnt What You Want


first_imgStay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits It’s been a real roller coaster of a week for Persona 5 fans. For months Atlus had teased mysterious new projects known only as ‘P5R’ and ‘P5S’ and promised more news would be livestreamed this week. Meanwhile, after being revealed at last year’s Game Awards, Persona 5 protagonist Joker finally made his shocking entrance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The stars had aligned for a perfect storm of Persona announcements. But the news ended up being more mixed than that metaphor.Let’s start with the good. ‘P5R’ is actually Persona 5: The Royal, an enhanced version of the original JRPG coming to PlayStation 4. It follows the tradition of previous Persona upgrades like Persona 4: Golden and adds new content like extra school semesters and a new Phantom Thief character, a cool looking lady named Kasumi Yoshizawa. The already stylish game is getting a 4K visual bump, too. And it’s launching worldwide in 2020 after debuting in Japan later this year.Considering its technical upgrades, it makes sense Persona 5: The Royal is a PlayStation 4 exclusive. But since the original game also ran on PlayStation 3, fans were holding out hope that a Nintendo Switch port was also in the cards. After all why put Joker in a Nintendo celebration like Smash Bros? Why did Best Buy say this port was coming? Why would Atlus ignore this hugely popular console/handheld hybrid?AdChoices广告Unfortunately, we’ll have to keep asking those questions because while the Switch is getting a Persona 5 game, it’s not the one you want. Instead of the rich RPG, ‘P5S’ is actually Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, a Dynasty Warriors game. Developed by Omega Force, we’re sure Persona 5 Scramble is looking to give the franchise the same treatment Zelda and Fire Emblem got with their Warriors games. Present players with tons of cool characters to choose from and watch them obliterate huge enemy hordes with awesome looking attacks. But Warriors games are dumb and bad. Sorry, I don’t make the rules.Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 but we didn’t get a release date… or maybe just didn’t care enough to look. Here’s hoping we get a real Persona game on Switch some day. In the meantime, check out these cool Persona shirts.last_img read more

Tell me that mass atrocities arent going on in Syria today Ive got the pictures Youve seen them Now [Obama]s contradicting by failing to help these people his own statement of presidential policy So I think hes betraying his commitment Hes obviously saying one thing and doing another I mean its patently obvious [McCain gets up and finds a file on his desk It’s full of pictures of victims of chemical weapons attacks in Syria He flips through it showing them to me before slapping the file down on the coffee table in front of him] The seminal moment was when he was going to attack Syria because he said they had crossed the red line and didnt The credibility of the United States in the Middle East crumbled Now why do I say its good to have manpads There are no good options in Syria and the options get worse every day the inflow of foreign fighters the increase in [the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria known as ISIS] who are so horrible that even al Nusra even al Qaeda fights against them Theres still a strong and viable opposition in Syria which is non-radicalized Islam and I dont care what people say because Ive met them So right now there is no good option and as we speak Right now there are helicopters flying over dropping these horrific barrel bombs I want to shoot them down And to stop these atrocities Im willing to take the risk of a manpad the risk of them falling into the wrong hands because weve got to stop it Im guardedly confident that we could get them into the hands of the right people and keep them in the hands of the right people Q You would support the US giving them manpads Thats right I would prefer it But if the United States wont and the Saudis do I would be nervous I would be concerned but as opposed to doing nothing No Q The head of the Free Syrian Army Gen Salim Idris was recently replaced by his own men What do you make of that move I attribute a lot of it to the fact that we never really supported Idris so he was unable to provide the means and the equipment that his people needed So I trace a lot of it to our failure to support him sufficiently Q Are you disappointed when you hear from Evangelicals who support Assad because they believe hes on the side of the Christians I met with a group of Christian leaders here We had a rather spirited discussion I believe that with a truly democratic and freely chosen government in Syria the rights of Christians would not be dependent on the good will of a leader like Bashar Assad of a brutal dictator And the Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Council has committed unequivocally on many occasions that they would protect the rights of Christians of Kurds of Jews of people of all faiths I believe they will Q Who do you like for President in 2016 New Jersey Gov Chris Christie I think hes still a very viable candidate I do believe that obviously he has to get this issue behind him I think hes handled it quite well Theres always the question in these situations on whether theres new information and thats the caution that I have but I think the smartest thing he couldve done is have a press conference that lasted until he answered every possible question I thought that was really a wise tactic on his part Q Any others Rand Paul Jeb Bush Ted Cruz I think we may have the most diversified group of candidates in everybodys memory You know last time there was a large group of candidates but there was a definitely frontrunner from the beginning even through there were ups and downs it was pretty clear that he was the front runner Right now there is no front runner Senator Cruz has carved out a significant part of the Tea Party and that group [Kentucky Senator] Rand Paul I would put in the kind of libertarian sort of conservative group I think he and [Texas] Sen Cruz will be competing some of the same support the Tea Party because theres overlaps I think that [former Florida Governor] Jeb Bush is an extremely viable candidate I think his pause is the obvious one; his last name is Bush But at the same time he may be competing with someone named Clinton so its kind of a balancing act there Two dynasties clashing I think that [Florida Senator] Marco Rubio is a very bright and very articulate young senator and has a great deal of attractiveness to him Q Did immigration ruin it for Rubio I dont think so because I dont think that Marcos necessarily competing for that section of the Republican Party Over 70% of the Republicans support a path to citizenship So he may not get the support of the very active and they are very active opponents of immigration but I think he is very attractive to many I think that [South Dakota Senator] John Thune would be a viable candidate I think it you look at our governors ranging from [Louisianas] Bobby Jindall to [Ohios] John Kasich particularly [Wisconsins] Scott Walker hes been through the fire [Texas’s] Rick PerryI think hes going to run again and I think hes going to have money behind him So I certainly wouldnt count him out and Im sure hes learned a lot I think that one thing that is clear is that theres no clear favorite and thats probably healthy for the party Campaigns matter Q Mitt Romney in 2016 I dont think Mitt would do that I really dont think that he wants to run again Hes very close with his family and I dont think he wants to put his family through it again Q It seems like immigration isnt going anywhere in the House this year and Democrats like David Plouffe have said it probably wont go in 2015 or 2016 ahead of the next presidential election So what do you make of the idea of not doing immigration reform until 2017 I think every year you can find an excuse not to act on it Probably around 2015 I could give you an argument for not doing it in 2017the make up of Congress whos going to be President You can always find an excuse not to act I still have some hopeI can’t use the word optimismthat we can convince our friends in the House that we ought to move forward in some way Now why do I have some hope Its because I know that the business communities the Catholic Church Evangelicals small business large businesses the growersall of our Republican basehave been galvanized to support this Its one of our highest priorities.
