Disney hopes for its next blockbuster in newest Star Wars

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Disney’s $4 billion deal for Lucasfilm and “Star Wars” just keeps getting better for the House of Mouse.The company is banking on the latest installments, “The Last Jedi” in December and a Han Solo movie in May, to drive people to theatres. But that’s far from the end of money-making opportunities from Han Solo, R2-D2, Kylo Ren and Rey. In fact, CEO Bob Iger said Thursday that the company is now planning a brand-new “Star Wars” trilogy, which will be the fourth in the franchise.Disney has drawn big profits from the strengths of its TV channels — namely ESPN — but that growth is challenged as more people dump cable subscriptions. As people turn to online replacements such as Netflix, Disney is hoping to lure them with a streaming service planned for 2019. “Star Wars” movies will be a big part of that; so will a new “Star Wars” series Iger also announced Thursday.Disney also wants to squeeze cash from “Star Wars” fans in the forms of toys and, theme park visits and hotel stays.___MOVIE MONEY“Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” released in December 2015, pulled in more than $2 billion in worldwide ticket sales, trailing only “Avatar” and “Titanic” as the bestselling theatrical release ever (without adjusting for inflation). It also bumped up home entertainment revenue from DVD sales. “Rogue One,” last year’s installment, made over $1 billion in global box-office revenue.“The Last Jedi” will continue from where “Force” left off. Michael Nathanson of MoffettNathanson has a “somewhat conservative” estimate of $1.9 billion in box-office haul for the film. He also expects the latest “Avengers” installment to bring in $1.3 billion.Big-budget, sequel-generating movies deliver big wins for studios. In fiscal 2016, when Disney released “The Force Awakens,” the studio’s profit was $2.7 billion. That’s expected to fall this year and jump back up to $2.84 billion in 2018, thanks to “The Last Jedi” and several Marvel movies.In the July-September quarter, however, the studio’s revenue fell 21 per cent to $1.43 billion. “Cars 3” wasn’t as big a hit as “Finding Dory” in 2016.Overall, The Walt Disney Co.’s net income slipped 1 per cent to $1.75 billion. Revenue dropped 3 per cent to $12.78 billion.___DISNEY EMPIREDisney is funneling its movie hits to other parts of its sprawling empire to help it make money repeatedly from its intellectual property.For example, “Star Wars”-themed areas at Disneyland in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida will open in 2019.“They’re huge and I think very exciting in terms of how we’re using technology to create really interesting attractions and experiences,” Iger said at a September investment conference.The company is also planning a “Star Wars”-themed hotel at Walt Disney World in Florida. Disney touts it as an “immersive” experience; guests will be able to dress up as their favourite characters.Disney is making other big investments in its parks, too, as it races to catch up with Universal’s enormously popular Harry Potter-themed areas. In the latest quarter, revenue rose 6 per cent to $4.67 billion, helped by the international parks. In the U.S., Hurricane Irma shut down Walt Disney World for two days, hurting domestic results.Analysts expect merchandise revenues to get a bump in fiscal 2018; Nathanson cites the “Star Wars” and Marvel movies, as well as “Frozen” coming to Broadway, as drivers.___GEARING UP AGAINST NETFLIXThe movies will also serve as a lure for Disney’s streaming service, which will contain hundreds of movies and thousands of TV episodes and shorts. Pixar, “Star Wars” and Marvel films will be included along with Disney-brand video. Disney’s deal with Netflix is expiring and won’t be renewed, making the new service the exclusive online home for much of Disney’s prime content.Morgan Stanley estimates that the service can, after a decade, become a nearly $5 billion-a-year business, with roughly 30 million subscribers. (Netflix’s streaming revenues for just the last nine months were $8.1 billion, with 109 million subscribers.) Disney will lose out on hundreds of millions from Netflix when it pulls its movies, and UBS estimates that it needs 32 million subscribers for the app just to break even.Iger said Thursday that the streaming service will cost less than Netflix at launch. Netflix’s streaming plans start at $8 a month.Disney also plans an ESPN streaming service, which it announced Thursday will be called ESPN Plus, that will launch in spring 2018. It won’t air the same sports as its channel — but one day might. ESPN, long its cash cow, has been losing subscribers as attention shifts online.In the fiscal fourth quarter, the media networks’ revenue fell 3 per cent to $5.47 billion; profit slid 12 per cent, to $1.48 billion. At ESPN, content costs rose and ad revenue fell, but Disney wrangled higher payments from cable companies.Shares rose 1.4 per cent to $104.09 in after-hours trading Thursday.___Editor’s note: This story been corrected to note that the new trilogy will be the fourth in the “Star Wars” franchise. An earlier version stated it would be the fifth.last_img read more

Ukrainian authorities We thwarted massive cyberattack

first_imgMINSK, Ukraine — Ukrainian authorities say they’ve thwarted a huge cyberattack and are blaming Russia for the alleged digital assault as tensions between the two countries have flared.The Security Service of Ukraine said in a statement that hackers used malicious accounting documents to target the information technology systems of the country’s judiciary.The SBU described the alleged hacking as “massive” but produced little detail about the extent, timing, nature or severity of the hacks.Ukraine has been buffeted by extraordinarily damaging cyberattacks since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014 and Russian-backed forces overran eastern Ukraine, leading to years of fighting.The grinding conflict escalated on Nov. 25 when Russian forces fired on and seized three Ukrainian naval vessels carrying 24 seamen.Russian government officials did not immediately return a message seeking comment Tuesday.The Associated Presslast_img read more

UK Election Conservatives Lose Majority

Rabat – After calling early elections, British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a major setback with her Conservative Party losing its overall majority in UK Parliament and plunging the country into political turmoil.As results were reported on Friday morning, no clear winner emerged resulting in a hung parliament. Although the conservatives won the most seats, 318, they were several seats short of the 326 seats necessary for a parliamentary majority. Their rival, the Labor party, won 261 seats.Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labor party, called for May to resign indicating that he wanted to form a minority government. He explained, “the mandate she’s got is lost Conservative seats, lost votes, lost support and lost confidence.” He added, “I would have though that’s enough to go, actually, and make way for a government that will be truly representative of all the people of this country.” Despite the blow to Conservatives, May intends to stay in power and will aim to form a minority government. A statement released by the prime minister’s office indicated that “The prime minister will be visiting Buckingham Palace at 12:30 today to seek permission from the queen to form a government.”May will likely look to the Democratic Unionist Party from Northern Ireland who won 10 seats as she tries to from a government. With their support, May would have 328 seats – just over the necessary majority. This is a huge loss, however, as in the last Parliament Conservatives controlled 330 seats.With Brexit negotiations set to begin 10 days, the political upset signaled more uncertainty to come and an increased risk that the negotiations would fail. Already the British pound plummeted compared to the dollar and the euro on Friday morning and with a hung parliament the pound could fall further.May called the snap election three years early hoping to win strong support for her party as Britain beings negotiations over its withdrawal from the European Union. The exit from the EU is the result of the 2016 ‘Brexit’ referendum that led to then-prime minister David Cameron’s resignation. read more

UN agency in talks with Sri Lanka government rebels on refugee returns

The meeting also discussed the future return of some 84,000 refugees living in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, spokesman Kris Janowski said in Geneva.Last February, the Government and rebels from the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) signed a ceasefire agreement brokered by Norway, raising hopes for the return of more than 1.5 million people uprooted by a civil war that lasted almost two decades.More than 84,000 Tamils fled to neighbouring India. In addition, hundreds of thousands sought refuge in Europe and North America, becoming one of the western world’s largest groups of asylum seekers. The conflict also displaced 800,000 Sri Lankan Tamils within their own country. Since the ceasefire agreement was signed, more than 230,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) have spontaneously returned home while about 1,000 have come back from India.While welcoming the ceasefire agreement and subsequent accords on refugee returns as a breakthrough in one of South Asia’s longest-running displacement crises, Mr. Janowski said UNHCR has repeatedly stressed that certain conditions must be created for the return to work.“The issues that need to be addressed include property restitution, the establishment of independent administrative and police systems in areas of return and the issuance of identity documents to those going back,” he said. “In addition to legislative steps there is a need to repair Sri Lanka’s physical infrastructure that had been shattered by the war and to remove landmines that pose a lethal danger to those going back.” read more

Pensioner 85 fights off burglars with billiard cue

She said: “He had a hood up and something over his face. I shouted: ‘What are you doing?’ I was angry and upset.””He turned and ran down the stairs into the porch. He legged it down the stairs.”She said she locked the front door and saw her grandfather on his back on the floor near the radiator.”He was covered in blood and he had some sort of stick in his hand and he was in a lot of pain. It looked like a snooker cue in his hand,” she said.There was a lot of glass and a lot of blood on the floor and walls, she said.Roderick McDonald, 52, of Luxembourg Close, Luton and Stephen Simons, 44, of Brook Street, Luton deny aggravated burglary and causing grievous bodily harm to Michael Ring on 10 August last year.Prosecutor Isabel Delamere told the jury that DNA recovered from broken glass on the floor in the conservatory was swabbed and found to match McDonald. CCTV from outside the house showed Simons before he put on a balaclava, she said. Mr Ring said he suffered cuts from a Stanley knife in the struggle. He set the burglar alarm off and when the black man ran upstairs he was confronted by his granddaughter Emma Price who had called the police, and was shouting at him.The man ran back down stairs and kicked Mr Ring in the chest.He said the black man ran out of the front of the house and the white man, who had been ransacking the living room, escaped by the way he came in.Mr Ring said the room had been “pulled to pieces” and he was bleeding everywhere. He went on: “Then I heard glass breaking. I got out of bed. The nearest thing I could see was a billiard cue. I kept it near the bed because I expected the thieves to come back again.”I pulled back the curtain [in the living room] and I saw two gentlemen in the conservatory.”There was a bolt holding the doors and they were having difficulty trying to get in.”He said he saw a white man, alleged to be Roderick McDonald, working on the bottom of the door and a black man, alleged to be Stephen Simons, watching him.Mr Ring, who walks with a crutch, said: “I switched on the light in the room hoping to deter them, but they continued as if I wasn’t there.”He said he “rammed” the billiard cue in the face of the white man saying: “He fell backwards and I thought they would disappear, but the [other] chap jumped over the first man and yanked the door. It opened and he came in to fight me. He came in to do battle.”He came straight for me. He pushed me out of the way. I hit him with the billiard cue a couple of times.” CCTV captured the robbers on Michael Ring’s property Credit:South Beds News Agency They moved a safe from the upstairs but were unable to get it down. After that break-in his son-in-law fitted an alarm and CCTV.Mr Ring, who comes from Cork, said he woke at 5am on 10 August to use the toilet and was awake in bed when he heard a noise. CCTV captured the robbers on Michael Ring's property  He went on: “The carpet and armchairs were covered in blood – mine unfortunately. I was taken to hospital. I was in a few days. I was in a lot of agony.”In the witness box Ms Price said she was woken at 5am by the sound of smashing glass and voices.She said: “I couldn’t believe it [a burglary] was happening again. I panicked and grabbed my mobile phone. I called 999. I was in a state of shock.”I could hear my granddad saying ‘Call the police.'”Ms Price said she heard her grandfather call out in pain. She went out of her room and saw a man at the top of the stairs. An 84-year-old pensioner who kept a billiard cue by his bed after he was burgled ‘rammed’ it into in the face of one intruder and used it to fend off another.Michael Ring suffered fractured discs in his spine, a black eye, cuts to his wrists and bruising on the brain after taking on the two masked men.In the early hours of 10 August last year, Mr Ring was asleep downstairs at his home in Ashburnham Road, Luton when the men broke in through his conservatory, Luton crown court heard on Thursday.In the witness box Mr Ring, now 85, said: “My granddaughter stayed with me that night – she stayed with me because I had been broken into.”He said he had lived in the four bedroom house since 1965.

Jimmy Kimmel Channels Infamous Jon Stewart MPA Appearance at Upfront Event for

first_img“If Jimmy Kimmel still has a job at ABC on Wednesday,” the New York Times wrote, “he is either a very lucky or very deft comedian, or he has great blackmail photos of the network executives.”“Everything you’re going to hear this week is [bullshit],” said Kimmel. “Let’s get real here. Let’s get Dr. Phil-real here. These new fall shows? We’re going to cancel about 90 percent of them. Maybe more.“Every year we lie to you and every year you come back for more,” he continued. “You don’t need an upfront. You need therapy. We completely lie to you, and then you pass those lies onto your clients.”Kimmel added: “I think all our shows are going to work this year. I really do … I don’t, really. The important thing to remember is, who cares? It’s not your money.”Déjà View The scene reminded me of another event staged for advertisers in which a comedian, hired to entertain, took a hard left turn into a Friar’s Club roast territory.The comedian, you may recall, was Daily Show host Jon Stewart, who was hired by the MPA for a reported $150,000 to host an Advertising Week event in 2005. Instead, he delivered a blistering rant on the magazine industry in front of a roomful of gasping advertisers and shocked magazine executives.It started innocently enough. “Do the men on the cover always have to be—what’s the word—glistening?” Stewart asked Men’s Health editor Dave Zinczenko. “I enjoy health, yet when I read the magazine, I don’t know whether to go to the doctor or rub my nipples.”Stewart turned to Jim Kelly, Time magazine’s editor at the time: “Time magazine has been a tradition in America, yet…what’s happened? One federal prosecutor says ‘let me see your notes’ and immediately everyone pulls their underwear over their heads and hands it over—Not only that … Newsweek breaks the story.”Soon, though, it devolved into an attack on print’s relevance in the 24-hour news culture.”The way news is driven today is not through print,” Stewart said. “I don’t consider print media as relevant,” adding that his infamous appearance on CNN’s Crossfire that year wouldn’t have had the same impact in print. “I wouldn’t have walked into a newspaper or magazine and gotten angry, because they’re not the ones driving the discourse.” RELATED VIDEO: Kimmel’s Upfront Presentation A few years back, the Magazine Publishers of America organized a rally during television’s “Upfront Week”—the annual glitzy gathering of network executives and media buyers where fall programming lineups are unveiled by their on-screen stars—staging a peaceful protest outside of the Upfronts wearing goofy t-shirts. The stunt was part of the MPA’s three-year, $40 million advertising campaign touting the power of the print medium—and to remind potential ad buyers heading into the network’s pitch that magazines  are here too!Perhaps the MPA should’ve hired Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel, comedian and the host of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, spoke to advertisers during his network’s presentation, and promptly eviscerated Jay Leno, the business of Upfronts—and ABC itself.last_img read more

Tackling crop burning NGT asks action plan from Punjab Haryana and Uttar

first_imgAmritsar: Stubble being burnt in a field on the outskirts of Amritsar on Oct 13, 2017.IANSThe National Green Tribunal has asked Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh to file progress reports indicating the “strategies and proposed action plan” of crop burning.”The concerned states may also file their respective progress reports which may include the strategies and action plan proposed to be employed to tackle the problem in the current year,” the NGT said in its order.The tribunal was hearing a plea by Ganga Lalwani, which sought direction for providing machinery to poor and marginal farmers in order to avoid crop residue burning.Crop burning in Punjab, Haryana, UP and Delhi was a major cause of air pollution in Delhi, which contributed to around 25-30 per cent of the air pollution in the city. The present order by the tribunal came after deaths due to air pollution and crop burning were reported in the national capital.The NGT bench, headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel, said that the issue for consideration before it was the remedial action needed to tackle air pollution.The bench referred to a report by the Agriculture Ministry during the proceedings. Based on the report, the tribunal recommended the use of crop residue for generating bio-energy, providing crop rotating machinery timely so as to be available during sowing period, preferring shorter duration paddy varieties and strengthening media campaigns against crop burning.Apart from these, the tribunal also said that use of drones and satellite imagery to map hot-spots, as done in respect of forest fires, may also be explored by the ministry and the states concerned.(With agency inputs.)last_img read more

Sort Bookmarks addon for Firefox

first_imgSort Bookmarks add-on for Firefox by Martin Brinkmann on August 18, 2017 in Firefox – 28 commentsSort Bookmarks is a new Firefox add-on that you may use to sort all bookmarks of the browser using the sort options the add-on provides.Bookmarks in the Firefox web browser are not sorted by default. When you add a bookmark to the browser, it is added to the end of the folder that you have selected.This means that you will end up with unsorted lists of bookmarks in Firefox unless you manually sort the selection, or use the sort options that the bookmarks manager provides you with.Note: Mozilla removed auto-sort options that were part of Firefox.Both are manual operations that need to be done on a folder by folder basis. Depending on how many folders you have, and how many bookmarks you add to Firefox, you may prefer an automated solution. Enter Sort Bookmarks.Sort BookmarksSort Bookmarks is a simple add-on for Firefox that you may use for two things:To sort all bookmarks folder of the Firefox browser at once.To automate the process for future bookmarks that you add to Firefox.The extension adds an icon to Firefox’s main toolbar. A click on the icon displays the options that the extension offers:Display folders at the top, bottom, or mixed in with bookmarks.Sort bookmarks by title, URL or date added.Reverse the order.Always keep bookmarks sorted.The last two options are optional and need to be checked. The add-on sorts the bookmarks according to the selected criteria. The process should not take long. What happens in the background is that Sort Bookmarks processes each bookmarks folder to sort the folders and bookmarks inside it according to the rules you specified.Please note that this is an all or nothing approach, and that you cannot reverse the process.The extension recognizes separators. If you have added separators to a folder, bookmarks won’t be sorted across it. This means that each part that is separated is handled as an individual group of bookmarks.If you tick the “always keep sorted” box, bookmarks are sorted automatically based on the sorting rules when they are created, changed, removed or moved across folders.Sort Bookmarks is a WebExtension which means that it won’t be disabled when Firefox 57 is released.Closing WordsSort Bookmarks is handy extension for Firefox users who add bookmarks to the browser regularly, and prefer sorted bookmarks instead of unsorted ones.   Summary12345 Author Rating2.5 based on 6 votes Software Name Sort BookmarksSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/sort-bookmarks-webext/ Advertisementlast_img read more

Etihad Airways wins Airline Strategy Award

first_imgEtihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, last night won the finance category of the Airline Strategy Awards, one of the industry’s most coveted awards.The award, announced in front of the world’s leading airline figures at London’s The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn, recognised the strategic contribution the finance team has made to the success of Etihad Airways. The prestigious accolade adds to an already impressive trophy cabinet for the airline’s finance department, which has won a number of awards over the past five years in aviation finance and treasury from industry bodies and professional associations.The award was accepted by James Rigney, Etihad Airways Chief Financial Officer, who said: “Our expert team plays a key role in the business achieving its financial goals, most notably in beating Etihad Airways’ break even target in 2011 to record the airline’s first ever profit. This award is testament to the efficiency of the financial strategies put in place by the management team over many years.“As we deliver our objective of sustained profitability, finance will continue to support the business through its innovative approach. Our robust financial planning and management will also help us to meet the airline’s ambitious business and financial goals.”The Airline Strategy Awards, which were launched by the international magazine Airline Business, recognise excellence in boardroom leadership, covering a unique set of industry categories across leadership, marketing, environment, technology and finance. The awards are also designed to recognise the role that management talent plays in shaping future success for their airline. Etihad Airways’ finance team has played an important part in supporting the rapid growth of the airline while developing strong financial planning, procurement, cost control and financial governance through the implementation of cost benchmarking, budgeting and budgetary controls. Strong relationships have also been built up with the global financial markets to support Etihad’s aircraft financing, treasury and hedging activities.In what has been a volatile time in the global financial markets, the finance team has effectively managed the airline’s exposure to credit, foreign exchange, jet fuel and interest rate markets.  They have also played a key role in Etihad Airways’ investments in other airlines such as airberlin, Air Seychelles, Aer Lingus and Virgin Australia and driven revenue and cost synergies with partner carriers.James Hogan, Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are now a fully integrated, international company and the finance department acts as an enabler for the rest of the business. Our goal is to achieve best in class service, deliver sustained profitability and most importantly meet the highest safety standards. Despite a challenging global economic environment, the work of our finance team has given us the foundation to meet that mandate.”The announcement of the Airline Strategy Awards continues Etihad Airways’ success at the showpiece event, which saw it win the marketing award in 2008.“We are thrilled to again be recognised in these prestigious awards. It is a strong endorsement of the hard work, dedication and commitment of all our staff who are the key to our success and have helped Etihad Airways grow into one of the world’s leading airlines,” Mr Hogan said.
