JaVale McGee Isnt The Court Jester Anymore But Hes Still The King

JaVale McGee Isnt The Court Jester Anymore But Hes Still The King

JaVale McGee has gone a long way toward shedding the persona he got from “Shaqtin’ a Fool,” the TV blooper segment on which he held residency for years. Coming off consecutive NBA titles with Golden State, the 7-footer is currently logging career highs in points and blocks per game with the Lakers while serving as a full-time starter for the first time since 2011-12. Not bad considering the collective confusion when he agreed to a deal to join LeBron James in Los Angeles.But for all the improvement he’s shown as a mainstay in this lineup, the 30-year-old still has an Achilles’ heel when it comes to his defense: McGee remains the league’s supreme goaltender.As of Wednesday, McGee had been called for goaltending an NBA-high 13 times, nearly twice as many as Orlando rookie Mo Bamba, who ranks second in the league with seven violations. The Knicks, who also have 13 goaltending violations, are the only team that’s been called as many times as McGee himself, according to PBP Stats, which tracks a wide array of advanced NBA statistics. But this is nothing new for McGee: Since his rookie year, he has somehow managed to lead the NBA in goaltending violations per 100 possessions in each of the eight seasons in which he logged at least 400 minutes of playing time.With 214 goaltends in his career,1This includes 11 in the postseason. including one season when he logged a league-high 55, there have obviously been some true head-scratchers. One violation in 2012 was particularly egregious: The ball was in clear, undeniable descent before McGee launched it, volleyball-style, into the stands 25 or so feet in the air.Puzzling as they might be from time to time for his coaches, the goaltending calls probably aren’t that big of a deal. Getting called for something that costs his club 2 points — 2 points they might have surrendered anyway — is arguably small potatoes compared with the upside of blocking a shot. And that’s likely even more true of McGee, who this year has blocked 5.3 shots for every goaltending violation.But McGee’s willingness to lunge at nearly every shot attempt the way a cat flails at a laser pointer can cost his team in other ways. His block attempts often hurt the Laker defense more than if he had simply stayed on the ground. Take a late October game against the Spurs, when McGee committed three shooting fouls — resulting in seven San Antonio free throw attempts in a 1-point defeat — that stemmed from him ramming into jump-shooters. Twice, LaMarcus Aldridge pump-faked McGee into the air, knowing his constant tendency to go for blocks. (DeMar DeRozan did the same thing to McGee when the Lakers visited San Antonio.) Over the past two seasons, McGee has posted the second-highest foul rate when it comes to big men bumping into jump-shooters, according to data from Second Spectrum.2Among those with at least 10 such fouls. Only Portland’s Zach Collins has a higher foul rate in such scenarios.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/JaVale1.mp400:0000:0000:55Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.While McGee may not have the greatest on-court instincts, the reason he attempts to block so many shots is simple: He thinks he’s capable of cleanly blocking them all. He’s highly athletic — remember the dunk contest in which he jammed on two side-by-side rims at the same time? — and at one point McGee owned the largest wingspan in the entire league, at more than 7-foot-6.“That’s something [the referees are] not used to seeing,” McGee said of a particularly ridiculous block, when he caught the ball with one hand — and appeared to do so cleanly — but was whistled for goaltending anyway.“I think he tries to be spectacular,” then-Nuggets coach George Karl said in 2013 when asked about McGee’s game. “Basketball is a game of possession after possession of doing things the right way, doing your job and letting the spectacular come. I think JaVale tries to find the spectacular and forces the spectacular when if … you just let us orchestrate the game, something big-time will happen.”Another prolific rim protector, Tyson Chandler, sized up McGee’s game nearly eight years ago in a post from a Wizards blog. Chandler presciently said the then-Wizards center needed “to understand how he can be effective,” and that he would learn that by playing with more established veterans. McGee gained that experience with Golden State — and now Chandler is backing up McGee with the Lakers.McGee has been a force this season. He’s been a top-10 rim protector3Among players who’ve logged at least 15 games and who have defended five shots or more from inside of 6 feet per game. so far, holding opponents more than 10 points beneath their averages from inside of 6 feet, according to NBA Advanced Stats. In large part because of their play at center, the Lakers rank fifth in the league in opponent field-goal percentage inside 3 feet and ninth in overall defensive efficiency. And while there were once questions about McGee’s basic fundamentals, those concerns have largely evaporated. Just look at last year’s NBA Finals, when McGee played incredibly solid defense after being switched onto LeBron.What will be worth watching on Thursday, when the Lakers play foul-drawing maestro James Harden and the Rockets, and this postseason4If Los Angeles makes it. is whether McGee can avoid being baited by fakes. If savvy teams like the Spurs already know to test his ability to stay on the ground, it’s almost a given that other teams will try it in a series.In a way, the key to the Lakers rising to become true contenders could very well be based on McGee’s ability to stay grounded on defense.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

Couple fails in Court of Appeal challenge over change to assisted dying

first_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Disability rights campaigners have failed in a bid to challenge the Director of Public Prosecution’s policy on assisted dying which they fear leaves vulnerable people “at risk from dodgy doctors”.The Court of Appeal today told Nikki and Merv Kenward it was “futile” to allow them permission to appeal against an earlier High Court ruling that Alison Saunders’s updated advice does not breach the Suicide Act. The 1961 legislation makes assisting or encouraging suicide a criminal offence with a maximum penalty of 14 years’ imprisonment.Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, the Kenwards argue the change in the DPP’s wording makes it less likely that doctors and nurses will be prosecuted for assisting suicide.They have the guidance will make euthanasia an “accepted form of behaviour”.But Lord Justice Longmore, sitting with Lord Justice Kitchen, said there was no point allowing a full Court of Appeal hearing as the High Court decision would inevitably be upheld.“Although it does raise difficult and delicate issues, it does seem entirely inappropriate that the case should go any further,” he told the couple.In the High Court in December, Sir Brian Leveson said that despite the 2014 change in wording to the policy on prosecuting defendants under the Suicide Act, the guidance “does not remove bright lines where previously they existed and and no assistance or encouragement is rendered lawful where previously it was unlawful”.He said that the gradation between circumstances in which it would be appropriate to prosecute in an assisted dying case and those in which it was not would always involve “a very detailed consideration of all the facts and, ultimately, a balanced judgment.”Mrs Kenward, a former theatre manager, has dismissed those comments as “bizarre”, and described today’s Court of Appeal decision as “disappointing”.Mrs Kenward was stricken by Guillain-Barre Syndrome in 1990 and for five months was left almost paralysed for five months, able only to blink her right eye, and she now uses a wheelchair.center_img Although it does raise difficult and delicate issues, it does seem entirely inappropriate that the case should go any furtherLord Justice Longmorelast_img read more

An Interview With Escape the Shattered Plains VR Developer Arcturus

first_img British Airways Tests VR Entertainment on Select First-Class FlightsGeek Pick: HP Reverb Is Clear-Eyed Virtual Reality Stay on target A few weeks ago, I got the chance to check out a VR title called The Way of Kings: Escape the Shattered Plains. Created by Arcturus, in partnership with DMG Entertainment, the title is the first visual adaptation of Brandon Sanderson’s best-selling The Stormlight Archive series. I have played many VR games in the last couple of years and was curious to see what Escape the Shattered Plains brought to the table. What I found was an engaging and immersive experience that masterfully transported me into a believable fantasy realm. That’s saying a lot considering I’ve always been a bit of a VR skeptic.Arturus CCO Ewan Johnson and CTO Devin Horsman were kind enough to answer some questions I had about The Way of Kings: Escape the Shattered Plains. They describe what drew them to adapt Sanderson’s series, what steps were taken to ensure a smooth VR experience, and where VR is headed in the immediate future.Why did the team decide a game based on The Stormlight Archive would make an enjoyable VR experience? What is it about the universe that makes it ideal for VR?EWAN JOHNSON (CCO): We were all attracted to adapting Brandon’s world because of the breadth of the story and the magic systems, which seem uniquely suited to VR. From there, Kaladin’s hero journey was particularly appealing because it allowed us to put the viewer in the hero’s shoes. Because the scale of this world is so large, we felt we needed to go deeper than a treatment and some concept art to awaken the imagination of DMG’s partners in producing a film. The immersive nature of VR combined with interactivity and exploration allow a much deeper discovery of a story, we could literally allow studio execs to step into the world and experience the characters and environment. By creating a narrative thread to combine the moments within the experience we could provide a deeper sense of the characters at the same time. As we developed the concept and a narrative that tied it all together, it became clear that this was a standalone piece that we should share with the fans.Was it challenging to create a unique story within the confines of the established narrative?JOHNSON: Very challenging! There are so many beautiful, unusual and scary(!) things to visualize. We wanted to provide an introduction to this world and we believed that by using Kaladin and his journey, as well as relying on Syl to be our mentor and guide, that we were able to stay true to the broad storyline in the book but also adapt as needed to provide a short, fun experience for new audiences as well as those familiar with the lore. Brandon Sanderson was involved from the very beginning; providing feedback on scripts and artwork and we were thrilled that when Brandon saw it all he loved it and said it matched his vision.What emotions do you want players to feel while playing Escape the Shattered Plains?JOHNSON: Fans will embark on an electrifying, unforgettable adventure in the Cosmere universe as they wield magic, dodge crashing landscapes, and battle against perilous magical creatures for survival. During this emotional journey, it was important to us to cover several emotional arcs that Kaladin experiences. He starts out a slave, chained to a bridge during a highstorm, sentenced to death. His survival of the high storm and subsequent meeting of Syl, his mentor and guide (in the books and the VR experience), helps him understand his new powers and place within Roshar’s difficult environment. He finds the strength and the skills to battle Parshendi on the plains and then must work together with his foes to rally together against the fearsome Chasmfiend. It’s a roller coaster from start to finish!What technical hurdles did the team face while creating The Way of The Kings? What steps were taken to ensure an enjoyable VR experience?DEVIN HORSMAN (CTO): For VR applications, performance is always a big concern. We need to hit 90fps on a sizable pixel count with two viewpoints (one for each eye). Most VR games are pixel bound, that is the bottleneck for most frames is on the graphics card doing shading calculations for surfaces. One of the techniques we came up with, involves flattening the various detail maps of surfaces in the distance; the normal maps, gloss, occlusion and even view-dependent specular lighting into very simple-to-render unlit surfaces that are much less expensive to render on a per-pixel basis. It happens just-in-time as you move around in the game. In effect, we trade texture memory for pixel rendering performance. There are minor artifacts as a result but we think the trade is very worthwhile; we save several milliseconds a frame this way and it allows us to have more detailed, up close surfaces than most VR titles.From a graphical standpoint, what were some of the goals the team wanted to achieve?JOHNSON: Our graphic goal was stylized reality. We wanted to create a world that evoked the feelings from the book. The landscape needed to feel hard and tactile creating the impression that it was a harsh place to exist, yet needed to be appealing and interesting enough to encourage people to explore; even if they were not familiar with the world of Roshar. We spent a lot of time exploring different types of rocks and landscapes trying to evoke the impressions we got from the books while making sure it didn’t feel like a landscape we had seen before. One of the biggest challenges in this was the design of the Parshendi. Brandon’s writing is incredibly evocative in a way that opens the doors to your imagination and we knew we had to stay to true capturing the feeling from the books but we also knew the Parshendi would be encountered at a very high intensity moment for the player and we needed them to come across as fearsome and dangerous in a quick read. Because of this we decided to take the colors of their armour away from the red and into more of a dusky reddish-grey. This allowed them to pop against the landscape and be visibly fearsome from the second you see them. It was the same reason we pushed the look of the shell to be more armored; in the heat of battle it needed to read instantly that this was armour.Why do you consider this an “experience” and not just a “game”?JOHNSON: We’ve been calling Escape the Shattered Plains an interactive narrative – which helps differentiate us from both, a AAA title with hours of gameplay, and from a passive, sit-back-and-watch experience. VR offers the opportunity to create a new entertainment format, and calling this a “game” would be a misnomer and potentially misleading. We are immersing viewers in an environment they have not seen before and providing an opportunity for them to explore, interact, and learn more about Brandon Sanderson’s amazing Cosmere universe.In what ways do you feel The Way of The Kings innovates/evolves VR gaming? What makes it different from other titles utilizing the technology?JOHNSON: Escape the Shattered Plains is the first major adaptation in VR (that’s not in support of a theatrical release) and our goal is to evolve VR deeper into the narrative space. There’s plenty of discussion to be had about what this is best called, so we’re calling it an interactive narrative. We believe that immersive entertainment, deeply rooted in story and interactivity, is a new medium and requires experimentation to understand how best to create experiences. We spent lots of time discussing story elements, writing treatments, determining levels and methods of interactivity, in order to provide a succinct introduction to Kaladin and the Stormlight Archives that satisfies existing fans and introduces the lore to a broader audience. Creating an adapted piece from Brandon’s work that goes beyond marketing gimmicks and stands on its own was a tremendous honor and we can’t wait for the fans to get a chance to experience it for themselves.Given the number of books in The Stormlight Archive, is it possible we’ll get multiple games set in the universe?JOHNSON: We certainly hope so! As with anything, demand will drive the development of more but we’ve already been thinking about what the next one might be and how it further immerses you in Roshar.Lastly, where do you see VR gaming going in the next five years?HORSMAN: There’s a lot of areas to explore as new hardware and software technology adds more affordances. As mobile 6DOF VR becomes more robust we should see a lot more interest in research on redirected walking; a technique to trick the senses into thinking they’ve walked straight lines when they’ve actually walked a curved path; it could potentially open up limitless spaces to explore. AR and VR technology will begin to look very similar in about the same time frame and mixed immersive experiences will begin to be explored. I’m excited to see how things like google’s VPS and AR storytelling working together can create the possibility for seeing a narrative unfold around you in real-time anywhere in the world, fit to the location you are in.JOHNSON: We believe that VR gaming is going to become a turnkey element of media entertainment; increasing the depth of our stories and extending the way in which the viewer (player) can experience a given story. For example, you might be watching a movie and the main character hints at a mystery surrounding the house he is in. Then, after you get home you put on your headset and enter the very house that was in the movie and begin to explore. Your mission is to unravel the puzzle that was alluded to by the main character. Solve the puzzle and it unlocks more games and experiences. These extended worlds add depth and variety to entertainment and will allow the viewer to become an active participant in the stories.We applaud our industry’s constant experimentation and we love watching and learning together, developing new and exciting experiences.The Way of Kings: Escape the Shattered Plains is now available on Steam and Viveport for $10.99.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Decline in US Oil Rig Count is Overdone Drilling May Resume

first_imgCrude oil prices continue to trade at their highest levels in four months supported by continued decline in US rig count for the past 20 weeks, however, analysts remain wary of resumption in US oil production as the prices rise.A data from oil services firm Baker Hughes showed that the number of idle US rigs raised by 31 last week, reaching its highest levels since 2010.”Nonetheless, based on its past relationship with oil prices, the fall in the rig count already looks overdone. Indeed, the recent rebound in oil prices means that the pressure to remove rigs should ease,” said Capital Economics in a note.However, the US commercial crude oil inventories increased for the 15th straight week to a record 489 million barrels despite the sharp fall in drilling operations.”The US oil rig count has more than halved since the beginning of the year, though without having any significant impact on the volume of oil production. This is due partly to considerable efficiency gains and partly to the delay with which exploration is reflected in productivity,” said Commerzbank Corporates & Markets in a note.Earlier in April, the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) in its monthly report said that US shale production is set to decline slightly by 45,000 barrels per day (bpd) in May.Many analysts warn that investors should not be misled by the current rally in oil prices, as higher prices will attract the US oil drillers to resume production.”While deferred well completions have provided near-term relief to the supply glut, they also risk exacerbating the duration of the hangover as producers are likely to bring barrels to market as prices recover,” Justin Bouchard, analyst at Desjardins Capital Markets, told Financial Post .Current rally in crude oil prices is surprising many analysts as underlying fundamentals remain weak. The prices of Brent crude continue their recovery to trade above $65 per barrel, up $19 from its January low of $46 per barrel.”We are confident that the latest price rise will not prove sustainable and that we will already see a price correction in the near future,” said Commerzbank.last_img read more

A huge, deadly Rinkhals snake was found in a children’s play area near a house on Thursday (April 20).Snake expert Fanie Cilliers was called out to the Royal National Park area, just outside of Bergville, to catch the snake that was in the house walls.The snake had been in the area for almost 2 weeks, according to the residents of the house. They had seen it, and on occasion the snake “stood up” looking to strike. The residents were living in fear.When their son came home on holiday, he decided they had to get the snake removed.The son said he was not going back until the snake was away from the house due to the small children who play in the area.Fanie responded to the scene just below the Drakensberg mountains, where the snake was seen between 2 walls of the house.Fanie said the residents actually tried to burn the walls to get the snake out, but in vain, as it did not move.On close inspection, Fanie found a rats’ nest in between the walls that the snake had gotten into and eaten the rats. He had to break the walls to get to the snake.After a struggle to break through the walls, he safely removed the snake without any harm or injury.Speaking to Fanie, he said the area where the snake was found is prime Rinkhals territory, and Mozambique Spitting Cobras are not found there.Also read: Watch Video: Mommy, there’s a snake on the stoep – 5.29-metre Python found near Ladysmithlast_img read more

Costa Ricas Solís authorizes strategy to fight money laundering terrorism financing

first_imgPresident Luis Guillermo Solís signed on Friday a presidential decree authorizing the National Strategy to Fight against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing. The strategy waspresented Thursday by his administration during the opening of the two-day XXXI Plenary Meeting of the Financial Action Task Force of Latin America (GAFILAT), held in San José.“I want to once more ratify Costa Rica’s opinion in the sense that those ills — organized crime, terrorism — must be fought off in all ways possible by the international community,” the president said.“And that leads to increasing levels of coordination and collective action, such as those you promote, and I’m particularly pleased by the attention GAFILAT puts on financing and money laundering, which are the foundation [those crimes] are nurtured by.”“I believe there’s a necessary deepening of the activities against those ills, universal ills … where the financial issue takes on a leading role,” the president remarked.Nevertheless, “we have much to do on the issues of terrorism … organized crime in all its forms, with drug trafficking, of course, as one of the most perverse and one of the closest to the Latin American experience,” he pointed out.Solís admitted, however, that “major advances have been made, major progress has been achieved,” adding that countries have at their disposal organizations such as GAFILAT, “methodologies for common action, harmonized public policies and political will translated into decrees and national legislation – such as the one I signed this afternoon.”Among other points, the decree sets up an Inter-institutional Technical Committee to support coordination and planning of actions, by both the public and private sectors, aimed at preventing and combating money laundering and terrorism financing.The National Strategy to Fight against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing responds to the three components of GAFILAT’s Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing (AML/CTF) system: prevention, detection and intelligence, investigation and criminal justice, according to government officials.The initiative’s main aim is to have its contents included “in state policies that strengthen the AML/CTF system.”The strategy also seeks to “reinforce joint work and inter-institutional coordination, allowing progress toward adequate prevention, detection and repression” of both crimes, and “sets specific aims and actions for the three components of the Anti-Laundering System.”The Financial Action Task Force of Latin America was born out of a similar body that included nine South American countries, founded in December 2000 to combat money laundering. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States, the group broadened its reach, to include terrorism financing.GAFILAT now counts 16 Latin American nations as members. It functions under the umbrella of the global Financial Action Task Force (FATF) created in 1989 by the Group of 7 to fight money laundering on a global scale.

California Expects Critical Housing Shortage Due to Wildfires

California Expects Critical Housing Shortage Due to Wildfires

first_img October 24, 2017 665 Views California Expects Critical Housing Shortage Due to Wildfires Clear Capital California Kevin Marshall LA Times Oscar Wei wildfire 2017-10-24 Dean Terrell in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, journalcenter_img Share According to a piece from the LA Times, 3,000 homes in Santa Rosa, California, or 5 percent of its housing stock, was destroyed by wildfires. “We had a housing problem three weeks ago; now we have a housing problem minus 3,000 more houses.” Santa Rosa’s Mayor Chris Coursey told the LA Times. Wildfires in Northern California have led to the destruction of 5,700 homes and businesses, based on Clear Capital’s monthly Home Data Index (HDI) August report released Tuesday. Most of these structures were in Sonoma County and many residents were already suffering from extremely low long-term rental options and a short-term rental market. “The fires in and around Sonoma County will drive more upward price movement and we’ll likely see near zero inventory,” said Clear Capital President and Co-Founder Kevin Marshall.Senior economist at the California Association of Realtors, Oscar Wei, said the the housing supply around Santa Rosa was already low before, but with a $600,000 median home price, it paled in comparison to San Francisco, where median home price is over a million dollars. In an interview with the LA Times, Wei discusses the appeal of moving to the less expensive city of Santa Rosa compared to San Francisco.“Because of that difference, in the last few years, a lot of people who could not afford to live in San Francisco or Santa Clara, they move farther north, out to counties like Sonoma,” Wei said. He predicts however, that once the city starts to rebuild, Santa Rosa will still be a desirable location to live in again. “In California, every area near the mountains, we could have fire,” he said. “I honestly don’t think that, as far as Santa Rosa and wine country are concerned, in the long term it will affect sales that much. People will go back.”According to Clear Capital, the decrease in housing supply will only add more stress to those already affected as access to housing becomes more expensive.  Still, the Western region as a whole continues to beat the South, Northeast, and Midwest in quarter-over-quarter price growth at 1.3 percent. The other regions measured at 0.8, 0.6, and 0.6 percent respectively.“The Western region’s growth is due, in part, to first time home buyers and those looking to re-enter the housing market post-foreclosure during the recession. Along with scarce home inventory and a strong tech economy, home price appreciation is being driven upwards,” said Marshall.last_img read more

At the time, Chuck Pagano was the defensive coordinator for the Ravens.“He snapped on me, oh my gosh, he got into me,” Bynes said. “He knew, coming out of college, what kind of guy I was, and I was that leader of the defense … he expected that same thing from me from day one.” On Thursday, Cardinals linebacker Josh Bynes said he told some teammates a story about his time as a young player in Baltimore.“I wasn’t supposed to go vertical on something, and Ed Reed literally said, ‘Josh, go vertical, go, just take it, I promise you, I got this, man.’ And then I just ran, and Ed Reed went and knocked it down.”Bynes relayed the story to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Bickley & Marotta on Thursday.

OSCE launches glossary on Cyprus for journalists

OSCE launches glossary on Cyprus for journalists

first_imgJournalists from both sides of the divide were at the Home for Cooperation in the Nicosia buffer zone on Tuesday where a glossary containing a few dozen mutually acceptable terms that can avoid inciting tension between the two sides was made public.The glossary, called ‘words that matter: a glossary for journalism in Cyprus’ was a joint undertaking between two Greek Cypriot and two Turkish Cypriot journalists – Maria Siakalli, Christos Christofides, Esra Aygin and Bekir Azgin.Under the wing of the organisation for security and co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the glossary had already hit the wrong nerve in some quarters of the media before it was even published with some journalists referring to it is a restriction on freedom of the press.During the press conference, OSCE representative for freedom of the media Harlem Desir said the words we use to describe our world are often a reflection of our positions, and that the power of words could be used to start a war or bring peace.“Words shape our view,” he told reporters.The glossary seeks to “open up a debate about how journalism can be an inspiration for mutual understanding ” he added“While journalists are not in charge of negotiations on the future of the island, their approach, the way they report on the situation and even the choice of words they use can have a direct effect on perception and public opinion.”Desir stressed in his speech that the glossary is only optional, saying It does not impose anything on journalists, but serves as a platform for discussion in a newsroom.The glossary contains a total of 56 terms considered to be offensive by either of the two sides of the divide. Most terms contain mutually acceptable alternatives while for others such as ‘pseudo state’ there was no agreed alternative.Published in English, Greek and Turkish, it also explains why a particular term may be deemed offensive, in a bid to allow journalists to better understand the effects of their words.For instance, ‘illegal regime’ could be replaced with ‘Turkish Cypriot administration’ and ‘occupied areas / territories’ could be changed to ‘the northern part of Cyprus’.The phrase including the word ‘occupied’, for instance, is viewed by Turkish Cypriots as biased and politically charged “because it is often used to attack Turkey and to delegitimize the Turkish Cypriot presence in the area.”‘Peace forces’ (when used for the Turkish army) and ‘peace operation / happy peace operation’ could be replaced with ‘Turkish military’ or ‘Turkish military operation’.This is because Greek Cypriots find the term ‘deeply offensive’ as there was a lot of suffering involved as a result and the operation was for them ‘by no means peaceful’.In the Greek Cypriot media, it is common to find words like ‘occupation leader’ and the words ‘pseudo’ and ‘illegal’ attached to many nouns like parliament, minister, elections, police, ports or professor.Though parliament could be referred to as ‘Turkish Cypriot assembly’ according to the glossary, no agreed alternatives were found for the words minister, election, police and ports.An ‘illegal / pseudo / so called professor’ could be called professor though.No consensus could be reached on the ‘Republic of Cyprus’ either or for ‘Greek Cypriot administration’ and ‘Greek Cypriot leader’.Terms which have failed to find alternatives should not be taken as an indicator of failure, the glossary said. “What is important here is to identify where difficulties lie and to promote discussion and fresh thinking within the community of journalists.”Desir said this is the first volume of the glossary and that there has already been talk of a second volume.He added he was aware that some media organisations have given thought to how they might take into account other readers from the island if a reunification ever took place.“We accept the fact that some people will not support it…it is not a magic solution,” he said.Some journalists went to the Home for Cooperation but did not attended the press conference as a mark of protest against the glossary they say suffocates freedom of speech.Desir thanked Germany and the Netherlands for their financial support for the project.The glossary can be found online at https://www.osce.org/representative-on-freedom-of-media/cyprus-dialogueYou May Like100topjournal.xyzThe Most Expensive Palaces In The World100topjournal.xyzUndoIQgal7 Best Exercises of Men & Women Who Are Past 30 Years of AgeIQgalUndoCar Novels15+ Ugliest Cars Ever MadeCar NovelsUndo Heroes’ welcome for Israeli teens after woman detained for false rape claim (Update 2)UndoBritish woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoWidowers threaten legal action over pensionsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

opportunity instead to highlight the triumphs of the women who spoke out against Hollywood’s toxic culture Maybe they’ll inspire men to do the same Write to Eliana Dockterman at elianadockterman@timecomToday is an anniversary of sorts for Susan Rice though she may not be enjoying it It was one year ago today June 5 2013 that Barack Obama named Rice as his new National Security Adviser instantly making her one of the most powerful figures in Washington and maybe the world But the heady promotion was borne of crushing disappointment A few months earlier Rice had been Obama’s planned choice for Secretary of State to replace the departing Hillary Clinton But in December 2012 Rice withdrew herself from consideration for that job in the face of furious conservative opposition In the fall of 2012 Republicans had fixated on Rice after her now infamous Sept 16 2012 tour of the Sunday talk shows in which she recited Administration talking points about the Benghazi attacks that proved inaccurate though there was no evidence Rice herself had either shaped the message or known that its emphasis on the role of an anti-Muslim Internet video might be misleading Now Rice is again under fire for a Sunday performance this time thanks to one simple phrase uttered amid the White House’s early explanation of the deal to free the captured American soldier Bowe Bergdahl Appearing on ABC’s This Week on June 1 Rice was asked about reports that Bergdahl had deserted his post and whether he would be punished for it “He served the United States with honor and distinction” Rice said As questions about Bergdahl’s honor swiftly mounted in the following hours however one could virtually hear a conservative cry of “Release the hounds”Rice hadn’t just fueled suspicions that the White House had oversold the Bergdahl deal she had once again made herself part of the story and rekindled smoldering embers of resentment over her Benghazi role Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina one of Rice’s main antagonists during the Benghazi furor last fall has now called for her resignation saying “I can’t believe anything she tells me” The media has been quick to amplify the criticism On Wednesday FOX News White House reporter Ed Henry described a new “credibility problem for the Administration in which Susan Rice was again pushing a false narrative” On MSNBC’s Morning Joe the same day co-host Mika Brzezinski marveled “Why would Susan Rice be sent out Susan Rice be sent out repeatedly to say he served honorably and really push that as one the fundamental reasons behind this swap” And with typical nuance FOX’s Bill O’Reilly declared Rice “a moron” At first Rice’s colleagues didn’t exactly back her up The day after her ABC appearance senior White House officials including press secretary Jay Carney and even Rice’s deputy Tony Blinken declined to endorse the “honor and distinction” phrase A former senior Obama Administration official who dealt with national-security matters says that’s no surprise predicting earlier this week that Rice “will regret” her comments But a day later Carney told CNN that Bergdahl’s volunteer military service “takes honor and is a mark of distinction” And in an interview with TIME National Security Council spokesman Patrick Ventrell made no apology for his boss who is traveling in Europe with Obama this week “She has kept her head down but when she needs to stand up and defend a controversial decision the President makes she’s not going to be afraid to do it and she’s not going to apologize for it” Ventrell says To the contrary Obama officials imply that it may be Rice who is owed an apology “She sort of brings out this craziness in a certain crowd” says one Administration official “If something is taken a half-notch out of context it’s calls for her resignation and vicious ad hominem attacks against her” “I’m not here to suggest it’s because she’s a woman or a minority or what it is” the official continues “But other principals in the national-security team don’t come under this kind of attack” The official also offers no regret over Rice’s choice of words saying “I think she’d do it the same way” if given another chance The official notes that the circumstances of Bergdahl’s capture remain unclear adding “We’re not going to throw this young man under the bus without any facts” Rice may speak again publicly on the issue soon There’s no reason to think Rice’s job is in danger She is personally close to President Obama who personally resented her hazing over Benghazi "I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks” he said at the time and rewarded her with a job that may be less visible but is more influential than the Foggy Bottom post she originally wanted It’s also a brutal grind even when Rice isn’t personally under fire Two days after she officially took the job last July 1 Egypt’s government was overthrown in a coup Since then Rice has managed an almost nonstop series of crises from chemical weapons in Syria to last summer’s terror alert to Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea Clear successes have been hard to find: “We are trying to put points on the board” she told the Associated Press last week She has also had to contend with critics mounting a more substantive case against her namely her role in overseeing America’s cautious policy toward Syria where Obama has rejected proposals for greater US intervention They note that after serving on the State Department’s Africa desk when the Clinton Administration failed to act to stop the 1998 Rwandan genocide Rice described herself as a changed person a few years later: “There was such a huge disconnect between the logic of each of the decisions we took along the way during the genocide and the moral consequences of the decisions taken collectively” she told then journalist Samantha Power (who would succeed Rice as Obama’s UN ambassador) “I swore to myself that if I ever faced such a crisis again I would come down on the side of dramatic action going down in flames if that was required” Syria today does not amount to a genocide and the Rwandan horror was arguably far more preventable than the violence in Syria Still an estimated 162000 people have died in Syria more than 60000 of them since Rice began managing US foreign policy Just last month Obama’s ambassador to Damascus Robert Ford resigned because he now says he could no longer defend Obama’s risk-averse policy there “The humanitarian situation [in Syria] is appalling” Rice herself told PBS’s Charlie Rose last week adding that it “wrenches every human heart” But she had little to offer in terms of new policy beyond an assurance that the US is now “coordinating and cooperating in a much more effective way” with regional allies and no hint of dissent with President Obama’s largely hands-off policy So don’t expect Rice to go down in flames anytime soon either over Bergdahl or Syria But it

modern comedies Mike and Dave arrives with a not wholly invaluable lesson tacked on at the end: You might sum it up as "Be nice Dont be a jerk" But the movies real value is that its crude and funny for no defensible reason As the audience herded out of the screening I attended mostly in good spirits one guy said shakily to his companion "Im not sure about that movies gender politics" Of course not But even if youve completely lost your taste for bro comedyand Mike and Dave fits pretty squarely in the genretheres at least one good reason to steel yourself and venture forth: the dazzling chaos that is Aubrey Plaza Mike and Dave Need Wedding Datesdirected by newcomer Jake Szymanskiis based sort of on the story of real-life brothers Mike and Dave Stangle who earned temporary ubiquity of the viral sort in 2013 when they took out a Craigslist ad seeking dates for a cousins wedding (The bride didnt want them "harassing" her friends all night) Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Zac Efron) love to drink whoop it up and just generally be dudes When their younger sister Jeanie (Sugar Lyn Beard who has a voice that sounds like SweeTarts taste) announces that shes getting married the family insists they find dates for the wedding Apparently their exuberant horseplay at family events generally ends in disaster "Were not party ruiners Were party creators" Dave insists but a montage of home movies showing renegade trampoline action and grandpas having heart attacks on the dance floor proves the familys point So Mike and Dave concoct that ad ultimately receiving thousands of responses many from unsuitable candidates: What they really want are "nice" girls who wont embarrass them and who though they dont spell this out will also sleep with them Tatiana (Plaza) and Alice (Anna Kendrick) formerly waitresses at a vaguely Hooter-ish bar (theyve just lost their jobs for showing up drunk) are broke and exhausted and they need a vacation They see the ad but sadly acknowledge that theyre highly unsuitable candidates And so Tatiana hatches a plan to rebrand herself and Alice as the nice girls Mike and Dave want They discard their droopy revealing T-shirts for puffy girly dresses tone down their streaky makeup and tame their bad-gal hair into something more polished and selfie-ready It tells you something that just days after seeing Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates I remember very little about Efron and Devine: Theyre fine They make their characters seem vaguely endearing in that clueless-guy way But their faces their bodies the way they load their figurative slingshots with jokes and let em ripnone of that has stuck It’s the women who are key As Alice Kendrick has the vaguely zonked demeanor of the young Laraine Newman Shes a sweet yet weirdly sharp space-case who

when the three basic postulates of Indias post-Cold War geostrategic position were becoming established comes the game-changer How does India prepare to liveand protect its interestsin a neighbourhood which is now not only the playground of the world but where the leader of the world has also given himself a deadline for retreat In the history of warfareconventional or unconventionalnobody has ever won by announcing a deadline before deployment Thats what Obama has now done The Taliban will be telling their hordesall they have to do is hunker down and survive in the mountains for just 18 months All they need to tell othermoderate or pro-AmericanAfghans is: youve just got 18 months After thatwe will deal with you or you now start dealing with us And Afghans are pragmatic people when it comes to deal-making Youd have to be that way if you live in such a brutal placewhere the only national industry and employment for two millennia has been fighting wars As usuala humorist has put it more accurately and cruelly: Jay Leno said this weekwith a straight facethat Obama has announced he will bring his troops back after 18 months and the Taliban announced they will continue fighting for just 19 months Jokes apartwhere does this leave India We had just got used to the idea of having active American military presence in our neighbourhood when they tell the world two more things Onethat they intend to build a new state in Afghanistanchange the nature of state and society in Pakistan And secondthat they intend to achieve this in 18 months and return home We are a civilisation and neighbourhood where wars last generations So July 2011 looks closer here than it would in Washington DC Look at it this way: it would come just about the time West Bengal goes for the assembly polls There are three pillars of Indias post-Cold War foreign-strategic policy doctrine: onethat Indias territories must not shrink any furtherwhile it has no appetite for expansion; twothat Indias freedom of stockpilingcontrol and doctrine over its strategic nuclear assets must remain undiminished; and threethat there should be no challenge to Indias preeminence in its immediate neighbourhood It is that last pillar that is now shaky First of allthe coalition that has now been built to fight the bad jehadis in Afghanistan is a lot more global than the one put together to fight alongside the good jehadis in 1979 This is no Great Game or Cold War sideshowand there is no balance-of-power Secondwe have as big a stake as others in some way even bigger than Washington that Obama does not return from Kabul a loser And thirdwhich is the most significantthe Global Afghan Project-II is fundamentally different from the firstbecause a fixing of the Pakistani state is integral to it While all three may be the source of some anxiety to usthe last one brings some opportunity as well Concernbecause changing the nature of Pakistani state and societyor in other wordsdemocratising a 14-crore-plus population that is deeply Islamicfiercely nationalistinsecure and suspiciousand has tasted many freedoms of democracyhowsoever faultyis a formidable challenge And Americas experience and expertise so far lie in propping up and sustaining dictatorships They may be spending billions on democratising nowbut in their hearts they must pine for a Musharraf Makes life much simpler There is no way they can achieve success within 18 monthsparticularly when their very presence is such an irritant to most Pakistanis And if they think they will continue working in Pakistan after their military pull out from Afghanistanthey are being optimistic And opportunitybecauseshould they succeedwont it be just what we have been wishing for decadesbut never had the resources or traction to achieve Particularly since the era of Islamisationwith the Zia takeoverbegan Every million dollars that the Americans spend taking Pakistani scholarssoldiersNGO activistsopinion leadersjournalistsparliamentarians to Western institutions to strengthen and widen the base of a newliberal and democratic elite in Pakistan is a million invested in our future Nothing will serve our interests better than a stableprosperingdemocratic Pakistanat peace with itselflooking inwardsand focusing its energies on its own growthand competing with us economically Beggar-my-neighbour may be a tempting thought each time a big terror attack takes place But bigserious nations do not run a foreign policy for cheap thrills That is whywhile we build roadsschools and the parliament building in Afghanistanwe must also make our own contribution to the larger project by changing our approach to Pakistan and coming out of this permanent post-26/11 sulk We need to engage with its democratic establishmentwith all its imperfections and all the irritating verbosity of some of its leaders The 26/11 investigationsHeadley revelations and now Robert Gates statement have left no doubt that what we are fighting is more than just the ISI While the Pakistani establishment may still nurse LeT as a likely strategic assetthe use-by date on that is now over And it is not because they have got scared of usor of the prospect of an Indian bombing of Muridke if another attack takes place It is because the rest of the world not just America will never accept such nuancing Those times will not even return after 18 monthsirrespective of whether Obama returns a loser or victor oras is most likelygoes to his Congress and asks for more time Our biggest worry will be if he returns a loseror in haste by claiming a partial success as victory The situation we would then be left with will be like that of a patient who the surgeon has left unstitched on the operation table Our policy has to work to ensure that does not happenand if it doesto build the strength to deal with not onebut two debris states next door Until thenwe also have to accept living in our region with our preeminence deeply curtailed If Obama winswe win If he loseswe have to be strong enough to look after ourselves because unlike himwe have no escape Heindeedwill be watched closely by an increasingly unsure American population What Jay
