The evening will honor Bob Costas, legendary broadcaster and long-time supporter of the Safe At Home Foundation.Celebrities slated to attend the annual gala include baseball legends Yogi Berra, Bob Gibson, Don Mattingly, Willie Randolph and Bernie Williams, broadcasters John Sterling, Lesley Visser, Tim McCarver, NHL’s Lou Lamoriello and Ken Daneyko, and actors Stanley Tucci and Billy Crystal, among others.At the event, the Safe At Home Foundation will introduce its inaugural Hall of Fame, an esteemed network of enduring and significant partners from the last decade. Inductees include BGC Partners Executive Managing Director, North America and Global Head of FX Products Daniel LaVecchia, Find Your FaceMate Founder Christina Bloom, Kate and Bob Devlin, Goodman Media International President and CEO Tom Goodman, CohnReznick LLP Co-CEO Thomas Marino, Flemington Car and Truck Country Chairman Steve Kalafer, Pfizer CFO Frank D’Amelio, Samsung Electronics America President Timothy Baxter, The Starr Foundation Director Howard Smith, TBWA\Chiat\Day and Verizon VP Of Corporate Communications Torod Neptune.In May 2002, the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation was established in response to the impact that domestic violence had on Joe Torre and his family. Its mission is to educate to end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives. The Foundation’s programming initiative, Margaret’s Place, named in honor of Joe’s mother, provides a “safe-room” in schools where students can speak to a master’s level counselor about the traumas occurring in their lives. Margaret’s Place offers students the opportunity to explore issues of violence in a stable, non-threatening environment, while helping them to understand that they are not alone or to blame. There are currently twelve Margaret’s Place sites in both the New York City metropolitan area and Los Angeles.“When Ali and I founded Safe At Home, we decided to focus on education as a way to end the cycle of domestic violence. If children understand that the way to treat people is the way that they, themselves, want to be treated – that violence, control and verbal abuse is wrong – we can change things,” said Torre. “In the past ten years, we have seen positive results. I hope that others will feel as motivated as we do to continue to make sure that every child feels safe at home.”The tenth anniversary gala is a chance to get involved and to support the tireless efforts of the Foundation to keep children safe.

King Mohammed VI Cancels His Visits to Egypt and Saudi Arabia

Rabat – News about the cancellation of King Mohammed VI’s visit to Egypt, scheduled for next week, broke out this morning, only moments after his decision to cancel a similar visit to Saudi Arabia to participate in the American-Islamic summit was also announced.Moroccan newspaper “Alyaoum24” reported today that King Mohammed VI has canceled his visit to Egypt. The trip, to meet with President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, was scheduled to start next week. The decision came after the Monarch decided to cancel his visit to Saudi Arabia to participate in the Arab Islamic summit, coinciding with the visit of US President Donald Trump.According to the newspaper, a delegation of senior Moroccan officials arrived in Cairo on Thursday to prepare for the now cancelled royal visit, which was due to begin on Monday to discuss cooperative support and the latest developments. King Mohammed VI’s visit to Egypt was expected to help strengthen Moroccan-Egyptian diplomatic relations, reported the newspaper. It was also expected to encourage the establishment of a strategy to nurture investments between the two countries through the launch of joint projects and Moroccan-Egyptian investments in the African market. read more

Big Ten Champion Ohio State Buckeyes are playoff bound

Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones (12) lifts the Stagg Championship Trophy into the air following the Buckeyes win against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game on Dec. 6 in Indianapolis. OSU won, 59-0.Credit: Chelsea Spears / Multimedia editorSeason-ending injures to two Heisman Trophy caliber quarterbacks, a week-two loss to an unranked opponent and the death of a teammate.That’s the string of adversity the Ohio State football team had to overcome on its way to a 59-0 drubbing of Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game and an eventual berth in the first-ever College Football Playoff.“We can say we did that and it just shows how truly special this group is and how we can come together, coaching staff, support staff, players, everyone,” senior tight end Jeff Heuerman said after OSU’s title-game win. “We just all came together and it was truly special.”Senior cornerback Doran Grant echoed Heuerman, and added the team’s attitude helped it fight through difficult times.“The thing is, I know we have a resilient team,” Grant said Sunday. “We’re fighters, and we overcame a whole lot of adversity.”The Buckeyes (12-1, 8-0) topped the Badgers on Saturday in Indianapolis, and then found out they were ranked No. 4 in the final edition of the College Football Playoff standings Sunday afternoon. That ranking meant OSU had moved into the final playoff spot, setting the Buckeyes up for a matchup with No. 1 Alabama on New Year’s Day.The game pits Buckeye coach Urban Meyer against Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban for the fourth time in their coaching careers. Meyer is 1-2 against Saban in the three previous matchups.Even after locking up their 35th Big Ten title, Grant said the Buckeyes weren’t positive they had done enough to convince to the playoff selection committee. But at the end of the day, they did.“We weren’t quite sure we were gonna get in or not, depending on what the committee put down, but (we) got in,” he said. “(I’m) excited. Chance to make history.”Going into the weekend, the Buckeyes needed at least a win — if not a blowout victory — in order to stake their claim on a playoff spot.But the matchup with Wisconsin came just more than a week after redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett — who was putting up Heisman-caliber numbers — fractured his ankle, and just under a week since the Buckeyes learned of the death of walk-on defensive lineman Kosta Karageorge.Barrett had already replaced another Heisman candidate in senior Braxton Miller, who was ruled out for the season after tearing the labrum in his throwing shoulder during fall camp. So when OSU took the field at Lucas Oil Stadium, it was down to former third-string redshirt-sophomore Cardale Jones at quarterback, playing with the memory of Karageorge in mind.“A lot of things happened this past week,” Meyer said after the game. “There’s a family grieving that was a big part of our family. Kosta, we had a prayer and a moment of silence for him in our locker room for him and his family. We’ll never forget our teammate.”Senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett — who wore Karageorge’s No. 53 against Wisconsin in honor of his late teammate — said the player’s death brought the Buckeyes closer together.“Maybe he gave me strength, because I’ve never played like that before,” Bennett said. “I think he gave the guys strength and we were able to rally around together because we realized how special it is to do what we do with each other.”Bennett finished the game with a career-high four tackles for loss and two sacks, while also forcing a fumble that was returned by sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa for a touchdown.Bennett and the rest of the defense’s play was coupled with unprecedented offensive success for OSU, considering Wisconsin came into the game with the No. 2 defense in the nation.Jones racked up 257 yards and three touchdowns through the air while sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott piled on 220 yards and two more scores on the ground.On top of the adversity suffered in recent days, junior linebacker Joshua Perry said he and other non-seniors wanted to send the Buckeye veterans out with their first Big Ten Championship.“There was a lot of talk about that,” Perry said after the game. “They’ve been here, done a lot of great things. They’ve won a lot of games and really didn’t have too much to show for it, so we wanted to send them out right.”As the team banded together for the seniors — including Karageorge — and injured teammates, Meyer said the Buckeyes are the most improved team he’s coached. But he added they still have room to grow with the playoff looming.“We’re not a finished product,” he said Sunday. “There’s too many young players out there … the future’s very bright, though.”Grant said the team recognizes it has room to grow, and added that has helped the Buckeyes on their path to the playoff and a matchup with the top team in the nation.“That makes us better,” he said of playing through adversity. “Having to fight, having to be together, having to depend on one another even more knowing that we already had one loss early in the year.”And now after overcoming that loss on the field — and losses off of it — Grant said OSU will take on the Crimson Tide with the same attitude it had against the Badgers.“Play with a chip on our shoulders, and that’s what we did last night, too,” Grant said Sunday. “Gotta play angry, because we need that respect, we want that respect for Ohio State. Because that’s what Ohio State deserves.”Meyer said he didn’t initially expect the Buckeyes to be in the position they are before the season started. He added that he feels the team has proven what it can do, but he didn’t realize that until the blowout of the Badgers.“I started seeing it but I didn’t believe it completely until the experience we had on Saturday night,” Meyer said.While his coach said he realized how far the Buckeyes had come while still in Indianapolis, Grant said it took until Sunday to fully grasp what the team has accomplished, and to turn its attention to what lies ahead.“Last night was kinda like, ‘Man, what just happened?’” Grant said Sunday. “But then now, it’s all coming. We see it on TV, we’re in the four spot, we see our name by that four. So now it’s real, it’s legit and we’re ready to take on this challenge.”OSU and Alabama are scheduled to play on Jan. 1 in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. Kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m. read more

Football Dwayne Haskins leads Ohio State to victory against Maryland in historic

Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins dives for a touchdown in the third quarter of the game against Maryland on Nov. 17 in College Park. Ohio State… Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorCOLLEGE PARK, Md. — Much of Ohio State’s season has been a Dwayne Haskins showcase.When the team was struggling to get the run game going in the middle of the year, it was the redshirt sophomore quarterback that lifted the Buckeyes to victories by throwing numbers no Ohio State quarterback had done before. Even in the team’s sole loss to Purdue, Haskins broke the program records for completions (49), attempts (73) and yards (470) attempting to get his team back in the game.Against Maryland, Haskins once again needed to bring his team back.And he brought the Buckeyes back, breaking two Ohio State records in the 52-51 overtime win against the Terrapins.Haskins finished completing 28-of-38 passes for 405 yards and three touchdowns. He now has the most passing touchdowns and passing yards in a single season in program history.“All that grit, all that adversity faced in this game and coming back on top,” Haskins said. “It just meant everything for myself and my teammates, for the coaches.”Haskins led the Buckeyes on three game-tying drives in the fourth quarter, including a 50-yard drive in the final 92 seconds that ended up forcing overtime.In overtime, Ohio State elected to go for it on 4th-and-1, and Haskins found redshirt junior tight end Rashod Berry to keep the drive going.Where Haskins separated his Maryland performance from his others was in his dual-threat ability, something he has failed to utilize all season.On Saturday, the redshirt sophomore rushed 15 times for 59 yards, scoring three touchdowns on the ground, including the eventual game-winner in overtime.He said being back home at where he played high school helped bring out his aggression on the ground.“It’s that competition. Being home, having those guys talk a little smack to me,” Haskins said. “I can run. I guess today is the first day I really wanted to show it.”Haskins did have help in the form of sophomore running back J.K. Dobbins, who ran for a career-high 203 yards and a touchdown with redshirt junior running back Mike Weber out with a quad bruise.But when the team needed a leader, when Ohio State was continually pushed to its limits against the Terrapins, it was Haskins that found a way to bring his team back.“He needed to take that step,” head coach Urban Meyer said. “That’s the next step in his career is the toughness, the leadership.”Haskins’ historic day was not without its issues. One of his runs ended in a fumble recovered by Maryland, and his first throw of the second half was intercepted and returned for a touchdown.Ohio State went down 31-17 after the interception, and from there, Haskins threw for 206 yards and two touchdowns and ran for three more, scoring the final five touchdowns in the Buckeyes’ victory.“I never lose the faith,” Haskins said. “Whether we win or lose, you got to remain strong in what we do as a group and as a team.”Moving forward, Ohio State needs to find a way to improve when No. 4 Michigan comes to Ohio Stadium to decide the winner of the Big Ten West.Haskins knows this, and he knows what Michigan can do.“Every week. I watch Michigan every week,” Haskins said.Regardless of where the Buckeyes will stand next Saturday, Haskins has cemented himself in Ohio State’s history.On Saturday, in his home state, against the team he formerly committed to, he kept his team alive, and willed the Buckeyes to victory.Whether he will be able to do that against the No. 1 defense in the country next week is yet to be seen. read more

Mrs Hanley, who still lives in Wentworth, said life was “much simpler” in Cornamona.She said “one-horse town” was a good description. “There is one road in and one road out,” she said. “There is one shop, one pub. The doctor visits once a week.” 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.center_img A woman embroiled in a divorce fight over a holiday house told the High Court “the village isn’t big enough for both of us”.Margie Hanley, 56, and estranged husband Michael, 60 – who used to share a home in Wentworth, Surrey – both want a property they jointly own in the village of Cornamona, County Galway.They are staking rival claims to what Ms Hanley describes as her “ancestral territory” in rural Ireland at a public hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London.A judge began hearing evidence on Monday. Mr Justice Holman heard how the couple’s 33-year marriage had hit the rocks in recent years, with Mr Hanley claiming his wife had an affair with a man he knew. Mrs Hanley denies this.  Mrs Hanley said Mr Hanley did not really want the house in Cornamona. She told the judge: “He is just torturing me. He is just punishing me.”Mr Hanley said he wanted to live in the Cornamona house – and denied that he was trying to hurt Mrs Hanley. He said the house had been extended over the years and he told the judge about “spectacular views”.”I like to fish,” he said. “I like to walk, I play guitar, I like to cook, I like to read, I like to meditate.”The judge heard that there had been suggestions of Mrs Hanley living elsewhere in Cornamona. He also raised the possibility of the pair, who have grown-up children, using the house at different times of the year.But Mrs Hanley told him: “We are getting divorced. The village isn’t big enough for both of us.”Mr Justice Holman is scheduled to hear legal argument from lawyers on Wednesday before making a decision.The judge said the couple, who also have an apartment in Florida, would split cash and assets totalling between £10 million and £14 million.He said they had together run up lawyers’ bills of more than £800,000 on their “Titanic battle” – and he described the figure as “phenomenal”. Mrs Hanley said she and Mr Hanley, who are both Irish, had lived in Europe, the Far East and the United States because his work had taken him abroad.She explained how they had built a house in Cornamona several years ago and went there for holidays and at Christmas.Mrs Hanley told Mr Justice Holman how generations of her family had lived in Cornamona. She said her 92-year-old mother still lived there and was the oldest person in the village.But Mr Hanley, who has retired after a career with multi-national conglomerate GE, says he also wants to live in Cornamona. Mr Hanley says he likes to fish on a nearby lake and to meditate.”It’s where I have been all my life – generations of my family,” Mrs Hanley told Mr Justice Holman. “Life is full circle. It’s where I started out. It’s where I ended.”last_img read more

BlueStacks bringing 400000 Android apps to Windows 8

first_imgNot sold on the concept of a Windows 8 tablet? Maybe you think it’d be a bit more interesting if there were going to be a veritable boatload of apps to choose from come launch time. That’s a definite possibility, according to BlueStacks — the Android software maker is bragging that its code wizardry will let users tap into nearly half a million Android apps right from their start screens.BlueStacks has already outed a public beta of its Windows software, which allows users to run Android apps on their laptops and desktops. It’s a bit like how the Android Player works on the BlackBerry PlayBook, and, like RIM’s implementation, there are a few caveats.For starters, having BlueStacks installed on your Windows desktop (or laptop or tablet) doesn’t give you direct access to the Android Market. While BlueStacks does enable you to install some apps directly, you’ll need an Android device with Market access and the BlueStacks Cloud Connect app installed to push your favorites over to your Windows system. It’s also important to remember that most Android apps are still built for smaller touchscreen devices. While the number of tablet-ready apps is growing steadily, most apps don’t scale terribly well to a display the size of the one perched on your desk — and they’re not always that much fun to use with a keyboard and mouse.But with upgraded support for Windows 8, BlueStacks does make the experience a little bit more exciting. You’ll be able to pin Android apps right next to your Metro apps (and Windows desktop apps, if you’re not running an ARM processor). To the average user, this might not be all that interesting — they’ll likely stick to the Windows Store for their app needs. For geekier types, however, BlueStacks could be a very welcome addition to Windows 8.If you’re keen on buying a device that offers a bit more flexibility than one that only runs Windows 8, you might want to keep your eyes peeled for manufacturers who sign on to ship BlueStacks on their touchscreen laptops, convertibles, and even all-in-one desktops. At the very least, you’ll be able to take your pick from two or three ever-so-slightly different versions of Angry Birds.More at All Things Dlast_img read more

TUM robots Kinect to sandwiches and popcorn

first_img Explore further The robots, James and Rosie, can respond to orders like “make me a sandwich” with the use of visual-detection systems from an Xbox Kinect. They also use perception algorithms to assess surroundings, and to make inferences about what they see, in order to execute their tasks. Robotic Roommates Making Pancakes The robots are kitted out with reasoning mechanisms all along the way that make them capable of decisions, rather than decisions that are pre-programmed. According to the Munich team, these robots can be more flexible and more reliable than robots using control programs without cognitive strengths.According to TUM, CRAM “grounds symbolic expressions in the knowledge representation into the perception and actuation routines, and into the essential data structures of the control programs.” The CRAM kernel consists of the CPL plan language and the KnowRob knowledge processing system. Both are coupled to perception and actuation components. The project notes also say that CRAM is designed to be highly modular; plug-ins can provide further cognitive capabilities.James and Rosie belong to a family of four robot platforms in the lab: There are TUM-James (PR2), TUM Rosie, iCub and Bender. The PR2 is a standard research platform for mobile manipulation by Willow Garage. The PR2 Beta has a mobile base, two arms for manipulation, a sensor suite, and sixteen CPU cores for computation. Each PR2 Beta comes with the open source ROS robotics framework. TUM Rosie was built around the KUKA-omnidirectional base and KUKA-lightweight LWR-4 arms. Meantime, one might see further corners turned by robotics researchers at TUM. Their research will continue to explore how robots can perform everyday tasks such as setting tables, emptying dishwashers, and preparing meals.

James and Rosie Preparing Popcorn and Sandwiches (short version) The make-me-a-sandwich goal of a toasted-bread salami and cheese sandwich with sandwich spread, for example, consists of complex actions. The team’s goal is developing robots that don’t need instructions for each and every step.The video shows James and Rosie performing their tasks with precision. Moving around the pots, pouring popcorn neatly into a bowl, placing bread slices in the toaster, forking up items for the sandwich, all indicate the TUM team is making progress in developing “autonomous” robots that can perform everyday activities.James and Rosie are part of the school’s CRAM project. CRAM stands for Cognitive Robot Abstract Machine. CRAM is a set of software tools to design and deploy robots that use cognition to manipulate items.last_img read more

Stupendous attendance in past 3 weeks at Kolkatas allnew hanging restaurant

first_imgKolkata: Around 1,800 guests have visited the country’s first hanging restaurant which has come up as a major joint in Kolkata in the past three weeks.Firhad Hakim, Mayor of Kolkata and the state Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister, inaugurated the restaurant in New Town on February 9. It is a part of the Biswa Bangla Gate which was inaugurated by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee from the dais of the 43rd Kolkata International Book Fair on January 31. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseThere are 72 seats in the restaurant. The fine dining restaurant will be kept open from 7 pm to 10 pm after entry to the Biswa Bangla Gate is closed for the public. The viewing gallery will remain open from 12 noon to 5 pm and visitors will have to buy entry tickets online. They will be allowed to stay there for an hour. Around 4,800 people have visited the viewing gallery since February 1. The waiters will come to the tables and take the order on Ipads. A copy of the order will go to the kitchen which is housed on the ground floor while the other will go for billing. There is a service lift to carry the food to the restaurant as well. Special lightings have been made to give a different feel. Battery-powered candles are there to give a candlelight dinner ambience. Wi-fi connection is free. A garden will be set up to increase the green cover in areas surrounding the Biswa Bangla Gate.

Visitors can use the lifts on one side of the gate to reach the gallery and the cafeteria. The visitors’ gallery along with the cafeteria is surrounded by glass, which will be part of the wall. The construction of the Gate has involved around 70 tonne of steel. The idea of the gallery has been conceived from the Eiffel Tower in Paris, while the cafeteria has been inspired by the hanging cafeteria of Malaysia.last_img read more

The ShapeShifting Robot That Evolves by Falling Down

first_img“Give me a perfect gait, and I can make you a robot in a week,” says Nygaard. But an evolving robot like Dyret can only move because it tries bad gaits. It has to take a spill or two, or gallop with a single leg while dragging the three others. “It has to be able to do all this really bad stuff that you wouldn’t do on a traditional robot platform,” Nygaard adds. Like a toddler learning to walk, Dyret has to spend some time embarrassing itself.“The big question is: Why would evolution be useful?” asks Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam computer scientist Agoston Eiben, who wasn’t involved in the work. “There are two answers. One, we know it works.” Evolution produced you and me and everyone else, after all. “And the other one is sometimes the problem is too hard for the conventional approaches, and that means it’s the only thing that works.”To get robots to negotiate a world as incredibly varied as our own, there’s just no way we can code them to handle every situation we throw at them. We can’t say, here’s how to handle ice, here’s how to handle kinda slushier ice, here’s how to clamber over rocks and traipse through pebbles. Nor can we teach them to grasp every object out there. They’ll have to teach themselves by evolving, not remaining static.Would you trust Dyret to transport anything but pillows and marshmallows? Nope, but its descendants may be up to the task. Getting a non-biological machine to evolve like organisms would out in nature means following the rules of natural selection. Organisms evolve in part because of mutations, which—if they’re beneficial—may give an individual something like better coloration to fit its environment. This helps the individual survive to sire more offspring, thus propagating the genes that code for fitness. By way of death, natural selection kicks the less-than-ideal genes out of the population.With Dyret, researchers begin by generating eight random ways, or “solutions,” for the robot to walk, which includes varying leg lengths. Generally speaking, these solutions are mediocre at best. “You combine several of them and then you get new solutions, a new generation,” says Tønnes Nygaard, a roboticist with the Engineering Predictability With Embodied Cognition project at University of Oslo. Think of it like parents giving birth to new children. The code that powers Dyret takes solutions and slightly modifies them, “which is the mutation you have in nature,” Nygaard adds.Take a look at the GIF below. The system is trying different ways to walk, as motion-capture equipment tracks how far it went and how fast. On top of that, a sensor in the robot itself calculates how stable each gait is. Good “solutions” get good scores. “There’s a higher chance of selecting the ones that are more stable or faster,” says Nygaard. Thus the robot can improve, generation after generation, like a species adapting to an environment. Don’t even worry about Dyret the robot. At first glance, the scrawny quadruped looks pathetic, as it struggles to walk without collapsing. But keep watching, and you’ll see it start to improve—walking slowly, yet ever more proficiently. Dyret the robot is teaching itself to walk. Or even, according to a new class of robotics researchers, evolving.Machines like Cassie the biped or SpotMini the robot dog are quickly mastering locomotion, thanks to line after line of meticulous code. But Dyret is different—it learns to walk on a certain surface, say carpet or ice, through trial and error. It adapts to its environment, not with lots of explicitly coded instructions like in traditional robots, but with special algorithms and limbs that automatically shorten and lengthen to adjust the robot’s center of gravity. It’s called evolutionary robotics, and it’s a potentially powerful way to get machines to master novel terrain on their own, no hand-holding required. Which means if you plop Dyret in a new environment, you don’t have to explicitly code to make it more comfortable with, say, a slippery surface—it just adapts its gait. “The robot doesn’t know that now we’ve changed its surface,” says Nygaard. “It’s simply trying to walk as quick and stable as possible given the situation it’s in.”center_img To do that, it’s not only modifying its behavior, but its body: Each of its four legs can elongate by about five inches. So when Nygaard took the robot out in the snow, it learned to shorten its legs to optimize for a gait that was both stable and not unbearably slow. “That’s because if it had the longer legs, the force became too much, and also the stability went down because the mass center was higher,” says Nygaard. Back indoors, where the carpet provides more friction, Dyret could afford to elongate its legs and take longer, more forceful strides.The system even adapts to changes in the robot’s own body. “We also tried changing the available torque of the motors, which would happen naturally when you have a battery that’s depleting,” says Nygaard. “We see that when it has a lot of power to use, then it has longer legs.” Again, that affords it more forceful strides. “When the power goes down, it will then shorten the legs but try to increase the speed instead.”So, putting it all together, Dyret is a machine that can evolve to not only adapt to new environments, but to change its behavior and morphology when something internally is going awry, like a battery running low. Sure, it looks a bit goofy at the moment, but what it’s actually doing is turning weakness into strength.

Review Tonya Harding tale I Tonya sticks the l

first_imgReview: Tonya Harding tale ‘I, Tonya’ sticks the landing by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Dec 5, 2017 4:22 pm PDT Last Updated Dec 5, 2017 at 5:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email “I, Tonya” is the Tonya Harding film you never knew you wanted: an outrageously entertaining reappraisal of the Olympic figure skater who, in 1994, was involved in a scheme to injure her main rival, Nancy Kerrigan.Resurrecting Harding from the yellowed pages of ’90s tabloids may seem about as necessary as a production of “Lorena Bobbitt on Ice.” But yesterday’s media spectacle has been very good for today’s movies. It’s no surprise by now that the tabloid caricatures sketched in a sensational news stories don’t always do justice to the truth.The more layered truths behind scandals of the past have made for some great documentaries (particularly last year’s “O.J.: Made in America” and “Hot Coffee,” the illuminating story behind the coffee that was “too hot”) and a number of recent dramatic highlights, like Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming “Molly’s Game,” about the woman callously dubbed the “poker princess” by the tabloids.Craig Gillespie’s movie — an “I, Claudius” for less regal times — isn’t a sober reassessment of Harding. It’s a winking, rollicking dark comedy both empathetic and pugnacious. It reframes Harding’s story as an American tragicomedy with some of the unapologetic, this-is-the-real-America sneer of “GoodFellas.” ”I, Tonya” is a peek behind a media circus that can’t help going along for the ride, too.“I, Tonya,” written by Steven Rogers, is introduced as: “Based on irony free, wildly contradictory, totally true interviews with Tonya Harding and Jeff Gillooly.” It begins in a mock-documentary style with the characters — Margot Robbie as Harding, Sebastian Stan as Gillooly — giving present-day interviews recalling “the incident.” Their stories sometimes converge, sometimes deviate and the movie — in a well-worn gimmick — playfully pauses at various points with characters turning to the camera to relay their perspective.The approach sometimes spoils the fun of “I, Tonya” but Tatiana S. Riegel’s editing is kinetic and the performances keep “I, Tonya” hurtling forward. Especially Allison Janney. She plays Harding’s bitter, abusive chain-smoking mother, LaVona, and her performance is a monument of brutal, caustic wit. In the film’s early scenes at their Portland, Oregon, hometown, she puts a 4-year-old Tonya on the ice and smirks as she skates loops around much older and more well-to-do competitors. But she’s downright mean, too. In one scene, she refuses to let Tonya go to the bathroom. When Tonya pees herself, LaVona declares, “Skate wet!”And that is, on the scale of things, not the worst of the abuse heaped on Harding. Once she finally flees her mother’s cruelty, she moves in with Gillooly — a leap from the frying pan to the fire if ever there was one. Their romance is sweet at first, but he soon begins hitting her, especially as Harding’s career blossoms. (She was the first U.S. skater to land a triple axel.)“I, Tonya” casts its infamous protagonist, nicknamed “Trashy Tonya,” as a working-class insurgent in a glitzy and prim sport. She’s proudly “poor and redneck,” jogging with bags of dog food hoisted on her back and performing skating routines set to ZZ Top. Gillespie (“Lars and the Real Girl,” ”Their Finest Hours”) fills his movie with tasteless interiors and period scrunchies, and scores it with a blaring rock ‘n roll soundtrack that plays across Harding’s on-ice triumphs and domestic poundings, alike.Robbie, in her finest performance yet, plays Harding as above all a survivor, smiling through pain and prejudice as she pursues her dream, only to be dragged down by those around her. She’s a punching bag who should be pitied, but is instead made a punchline when the Coen brothers-esque scheme by Gillooly — likewise a victim of his associates — and bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt (Paul Walter Hauser) rapidly spins out of control.“I, Tonya” has fun with the various versions of the Kerrigan attack, treating it like “Rashomon” for idiots. But the main takeaway is a believable one: that Harding, just 23 at the time, deserved better than yet another beat-down meted out by a much-entertained public.“America,” she says. “They want someone to love, but they want someone to hate.”“I, Tonya,” a Neon release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “pervasive language, violence, and some sexual content/nudity.” Running time: 121 minutes. Three stars out of four.___MPAA definition of R: Restricted.

Michele Tafoya stood next to Aaron Rodgers on the

first_img Michele Tafoya stood next to Aaron Rodgers on the Lambeau Field turf and saw the mischievous glint in the quarterback’s eyes. She knew a good interview was ahead.And it was, with Rodgers not only reveling in the comeback he’d led on NBC’s first Sunday night telecast this season, but guaranteeing his knee problems would not sideline him for the next game against Minnesota.It was a short conversation that highlighted how a sideline reporter — perhaps the most thankless job in sports broadcasting — can bring news and some entertainment to the viewer.That’s something Tafoya has been doing for three outlets: NBC, ABC and ESPN. She worked her 250th game when the Cowboys beat the Giants in Week 2 of the NFL schedule.“The other night with Aaron, you could feel the air leave that building when he was hurt,” Tafoya says. “Are you kidding me? The thought occurred he might be done, and he was done early last year, too. And then to witness the comeback, it was sort of like watching a movie.“When he came back on the field and he was on the sideline, Mike McCarthy was saying, ‘We will see if he is ready.’ Aaron was smiling and had that gleam, and there’s nothing like that when it’s in his eyes, when he has that little mystery in him. Then to see he was so ticked when they had to settle for a field goal on his first drive back, he was livid.“Then the gleam came back, and I thought about it throughout that performance — and you are standing right there; my eyes were on this guy even if the camera couldn’t be.’”As for the comeback to beat the Bears, which didn’t surprise Tafoya at all because she’s seen it so many times from the Packers star, “He knew it. He has an uncanny ability to focus and seem to be relaxed in the process.”There are so many inherent difficulties in the sideline reporters’ jobs. The last thing they want to be is superfluous, yet nuggets of knowledge aren’t always available. Pro sports teams aren’t all that forthcoming with any information, let alone injuries or benchings.By necessity, the time Tafoya and her peers have on the air is limited; fans tune in for the action on the field, not for who is announcing. It’s a get in and get out sort of environment, so being concise and precise are essential.“The No. 1 job for any broadcaster is ‘getting it right.’ Michele embraces that responsibility and works extremely hard to fulfil it,” says Fred Gaudelli, executive producer for “Sunday Night Football.”“A top-level sideline reporter needs to excel in a few areas. No. 1, they should be a reporter first, and possess the skills that go with that job. Second, they have to be versatile and understand tone. Versatile in the sense that they are equally effective in telling a personal story or reporting on a serious matter. Tone in the sense that their delivery fits the story.“And lastly, they must be fast on their feet in what’s often a chaotic environment. Things change quickly and they must be able to absorb the changes and report them effectively. Michelle gets an A-plus in all those categories.”Probably her most challenging work came when then-Texans coach Gary Kubiak collapsed just before halftime of a Sunday night game in 2013. The coach was wheeled into the locker room on a stretcher, but there was very little information immediately available on his condition.Tafoya did what any professional reporter should do, sticking to what she knew.“The Houston head coach collapsed and no one saw exactly when it happened,” Tafoya reported. “It happened on or near the 20 (yard line), which appeared to be when he was walking off the field. He was attended, surrounded by medical staff. He was speaking, but he also looked to be in extraordinary pain. He could not open his eyes. …“It appeared again that he tried to sit up momentarily, could not stay up. They laid him back down. I never once saw him open his eyes, but we did confirm that he was talking as he was wheeled off the field. A situation that we are going to continue to follow. Very frightening down here.”Tafoya stayed with the story even as the game continued. She spoke with defensive co-ordinator Wade Phillips, who took over Kubiak’s duties for the second half, and told her audience what Phillips had been told by the medical staff:“Now, what he was told was that this trip to the hospital in the ambulance is purely precautionary for Gary Kubiak, that his heart rate was fine, that his pulse was fine, again, it’s precautionary. This is what Wade Phillips told me. He said, ‘You know, with coaching, it could be that he’s just spent too many nights staying up all night and it’s finally caught up with him.’”Tafoya made it clear to her audience that there was no official word from the team. When that word did come, she made sure to interview Texans general manager Rick Smith, providing firsthand knowledge to viewers.Again, precisely the right journalistic approach.“I am most proud of the Kubiak situation,” she says. “We had to very measured and it is difficult to remain in that state when you are dealing with a situation that could go very badly in an instance. I worked every angle I possibly could in the confines of that stadium. I am very proud of that work.”___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL by Barry Wilner, The Associated Press Posted Sep 17, 2018 11:29 pm PDT Last Updated Sep 18, 2018 at 12:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email In this Nov. 19, 2017, file photo NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya reports before an NFL football game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.
