BC at odds with their premier over Trans Mountain surveyBC at odds with their premier over Trans Mountain survey

first_imgA new poll shows B.C. residents may not share the same attitudes about the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion as their premier.The Angus Reid Poll surveyed over 2,100 Canadians, half of them in B.C., and found 54 per cent of British Columbians now support the project, up six points from February.Spokesperson Shachi Kurl says that support grows even more if the law doesn’t side with B.C.“(The) majority of British Columbians do say that if that happens, if the courts rule and they do not rule in favour of continued blockage, or delay, then it should be time for the B.C. government to give in and allow the pipeline to be built,” she said.Kinder Morgan has halted construction of the pipeline, putting a May 31 deadline in place to decide on whether it’s viable to continue the project worth more than $8-billion.last_img read more

YouTube suspends star over suicide video doesnt shut doorYouTube suspends star over suicide video doesnt shut door

first_imgPASADENA, Calif. – YouTube has suspended a star who posted video images of what appeared to be a suicide victim but said Saturday that doesn’t mean it won’t work with him in the future.The video service announced this week that it had pulled Logan Paul’s channel from its ad-supported Google Preferred platform and put two other projects on hold.YouTube chief business officer Robert Kyncl said Saturday there’s no timetable for when Paul’s future will be addressed again. Kyncl didn’t shut YouTube’s door on Paul.“Everything is evolving so fast,” Kyncl said. “The best thing we can do is put all projects on hold indefinitely, and there’s no date or plan for him in the future.”Paul apologized for posting video of him in a forest near Mount Fuji in Japan near what seemed to be a body hanging from a tree. The location is known in Japan as a frequent site for suicides.YouTube said the images violated its policies. Paul pulled the images from his channel on his own.YouTube was criticized for moving slowly in response, taking nearly two weeks to take action. YouTube said on Twitter this week that critics were right to be frustrated by its initial lack of response.Kyncl said Paul recognizes that he has made serious missteps and has expressed remorse for them.“The most important thing to focus on is that actions speak louder than words and Logan has the opportunity to prove that,” he said.Removing Paul’s work from the Google Preferred platform cuts off a significant route to advertising revenue through YouTube. YouTube also said it would not feature Paul in the fourth season of its series “Foursome” and would put other work on hold. Paul is one of the platform’s biggest stars, with Forbes magazine estimating he earned $12.5 million last year.YouTube said it would soon announce steps to protect advertisers from having their products connected to controversial material.last_img read more

Niagara Regional Police Chief Jeff McGuire announces retirementNiagara Regional Police Chief Jeff McGuire announces retirement

Niagara Regional Police Chief Jeff McGuire has announced he will be retiring on July 14. McGuire, who became the forces eighth chief of police in 2012, has been a police officer for forty years. He is a former President of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police and is a member of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the FBI National Academy Associates and the Police Executive Research Forum.

I am very proud of all of the women and men of the NRPS, both civilian and sworn, and their commitment to making every community across the Region a safer place for all.

Power Corp ready to invest more than 10 billion as it targetsPower Corp ready to invest more than 10 billion as it targets

MONTREAL — Power Corp. is prepared to invest more than $10 billion over the next five years to expand its empire while it also looks to sell some assets and exit the newspaper business, the holding company’s co-CEOs said Friday.“We have a capacity in the coming five years to put capital exceeding $10 billion at work to play a consolidation game and to play the game in the big leagues,” Paul Desmarais Jr. said at a news conference after its annual meeting.He said the sum will be larger when including money to be invested by subsidiaries like Power Financial.A key area of focus is the U.S. pension fund business that is expected to undergo consolidation. Currently, it owns Putnam Investments, acquired in 2007.“It’s a very fragmented business and we will have an opportunity to be one of the big consolidators in this industry.”Desmarais added that the large Canadian holding company — which has assets around the world including a large stake in China Asset Management Co. — is examining some of its capital intensive businesses to see if they can be sold at attractive prices.Co-CEO and brother, Andre Desmarais, added that insurer Great-West Life and fund manager IGM Financial are not on the sales block.Desmarais said he expects other Canadian newspaper owners will take a hard look at its decision to transform its Montreal La Presse news group into a not-for-profit structure.The 130-year-old newspaper is owned by Square Victoria Communications Group, a subsidiary of Power, which plans to grant $50 million to the venture.Under the new structure, Power Corp. would no longer own the media company or have any ties with the not-for-profit structure.“I think it makes a lot of sense and I think it makes sense for English Canada as much as it does for Quebec,” he told reporters.Desmarais noted that all news media outlets are grappling with the rise of digital competitors such as Google and Facebook, and will have to figure out how to proceed.“Everyone will have their why now moment and probably a public company will have a why now moment a lot faster than a private company.”Part of the shift in La Presse’s ownership structure is designed to allow it to get donations and funding from government, which is unfeasible as long as it is owned by one of Canada’s richest families.“If I was in government I wouldn’t give a subsidy to the Desmarais family. It would be misinterpreted,” he said.But Andre Desmarais said he’s optimistic that the federal government, which is studying funding for national newspapers, will end up providing funding because it would want to help a medium that supports democracy. He noted that the CBC gets about $1 billion a year, but just for the broadcast medium.Meanwhile, Paul Desmarais told shareholders that the Lafarge board of directors, on which he is a member as the owner of 9.43 per cent in Lafarge-Holcim, was not aware of the cement maker allegedly funding Syrian militants until it was reported on by the media in 2016.“As soon as this matter was brought to its attention, the board of directors immediately initiated an independent internal investigation, the results of which were, on its own initiative, turned over to the authorities with the assurance of its co-operation,” he said in a statement read to reporters.It also implemented additional compliance and internal control measures.French and Belgian authorities are investigating several ex-employees for their alleged roles in indirectly funding groups including the Islamic State to guarantee safe passage for staff and supply of plants.The wrongdoing precedes Lafarge’s merger with Swiss company Holcim in 2017.Power Corp. says its net earnings more than doubled to a record $525 million or $1.13 per share in the first quarter, compared with $258 million or 56 cents per share in the prior year quarter.Excluding restructuring and other charges last year, adjusted profits were $269 million or 58 cents per share in the first quarter of 2017.Power increased its quarterly dividend 6.6 per cent to 38.20 cents per share, payable June 29 to shareholders of record June 8.——Power Corp. holds an investment in The Canadian Press as part of a joint agreement with a subsidiary of the Globe and Mail and Torstar Corp.Companies in this story: (TSX:POW, TSX:PWF). read more

As insecurity rises in Darfur Sudan Annan urges protection of civiliansAs insecurity rises in Darfur Sudan Annan urges protection of civilians

In his monthly update on the situation in Darfur to the Security Council, Mr. Annan says work is underway on a possible transition from the current African Union (AU) mission in Sudan, known as AMIS, to a UN force. “As planning moves forward in consultation with the parties, it will have to take into consideration the ongoing violence and consistent violation of human rights in the region, the displacement of more than 3 million people and increasing instability near the border with Chad,” he says.International efforts in Darfur should aim to “contribute to the protection of civilians at risk with a view to creating an environment conducive to national reconciliation in a country where human rights are respected and internally displaced persons and refugees can return home in safety and dignity.”He cautions that success will require the support of the Khartoum Government. “Although the Government of the Sudan is expressing reservations at the moment, we hope to gain its cooperation as we carry out the planning,” Mr. Annan writes. “In fact, Government cooperation will be a requirement, since the Security Council request to start planning for a possible transition stipulates, quite rightly, that we do so in cooperation and in close consultation with the parties to the Abuja peace talks.”The Secretary-General also warns that without an effective ceasefire, any international security presence in Darfur “will have to be mandated and equipped to take robust action to protect civilians at risk.”The report points to escalating insecurity, and warns that banditry, armed clashes and tensions along the border with Chad are contributing to a “dangerous and volatile situation” in Darfur.As the people of Darfur face growing threats to their security, aid workers trying to offer help are also under attack, according to the report. The UN has been forced to restrict the movements of relief workers in parts of Western Darfur and to cut staff levels in the region. Humanitarian and commercial convoys in Southern Darfur were also subjected to banditry.“In the face of continuing attacks by militias, the police have not provided protection to civilian populations,” Mr. Annan states, citing one incident when police “resorted to an excessive use of force, in one instance resulting in the death of a secondary school student.” Civilians living close to rebel territory and who share the same ethnicity as the rebels are particularly vulnerable to abuse by the Sudanese Armed Forces.Insecurity in Western Darfur has affected the overall protection situation there, with new forced displacements taking place almost daily, according to the report. Some of the forced displacements are due to inter-tribal conflict, while others are caused by fighting between Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) on the one hand and the Sudanese Armed Forces and militia forces on the other.The report also points to disturbing indications of sexual violence against children, noting that the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) is “following up on five separate cases in Northern and Western Darfur between late November 2005 and January 2006, in which strong evidence has emerged that children under 15 years of age were raped.”Mr. Annan calls on the parties to urgently work to achieve a negotiated settlement. “It is of utmost importance that everything possible be done to ensure that the parties conclude an agreement during this seventh round of talks” in Abuja, Nigeria, he says. read more

US consumer prices slipped 01 per cent in MayUS consumer prices slipped 01 per cent in May

WASHINGTON – Consumer prices declined in May, reflecting a big drop in energy prices and smaller declines in a number of other areas. It was the second monthly decline in the past three months and underscores how inflation has been a no-show in the slow-growing U.S. economy.Consumer prices edged down 0.1 per cent last month following a small 0.2 per cent increase in April, the Labor Department reported Wednesday. Prices had fallen 0.3 per cent in March. In addition to a drop in energy costs last month, the price of clothing, airline fares and medical care also declined.Core inflation, which excludes energy and food, rose a slight 0.1 per cent in May.The Federal Reserve was expected to boost a key interest rate later Wednesday. But some economists suggested that the unexpected slowdown in inflation in recent months may cause the Fed to slow the pace of further rate hikes.“From out of nowhere we have now had three months of unusual weakness in underlying prices,” said Paul Ashworth, chief economist at Capital Economics.He said the inflation slowdown was occurring at the same time that the unemployment rate has fallen to a 16-year low.“It won’t stop the Fed from hiking interest rates later today, but it increases the downside risks to our forecast that there will be a further two rate hikes in the second half of this year,” he said in a research note.Over the past 12 months, consumer prices are up 1.9 per cent while core inflation has risen 1.7 per cent. The Federal Reserve seeks to manage interest rates to promote moderate annual gains in inflation of 2 per cent. The Fed’s preferred measure of inflation, tied to consumer spending, has been below 2 per cent for five years and in recent months slipped back a bit.However, Fed officials have said they believe the recent slowdown in price gains reflected transitory factors and they expect inflation will resume moving toward 2 per cent as low unemployment helps to boost wages. Unemployment in May dipped to 4.3 per cent.In May, food costs edged up a tiny 0.2 per cent while energy costs fell 2.7 per cent, led by a 6.2 per cent drop in the price of gasoline. Over the past 12 months, food costs are up just 0.9 per cent while energy prices have risen 5.4 per cent.Clothing costs dropped 0.8 per cent in May while the cost of new cars and used cars both fell 0.2 per cent.Medical services such as the cost of doctor’s visits dipped 0.1 per cent in May but have risen 2.5 per cent over the past 12 months. US consumer prices slipped 0.1 per cent in May In this Wednesday, June 7, 2017, photo, shoppers walk into a J.C. Penney department store in Hialeah, Fla. On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, the Labor Department reports on U.S. consumer prices for May.

Paladins is Free Good Enough Overwatch on Nintendo SwitchPaladins is Free Good Enough Overwatch on Nintendo Switch

first_img For the longest time I thought the super popular Overwatch would be a no-brainer port on Nintendo Switch. It’s a first-person shooter, so it doesn’t rely on mouse controls as much as strategy games like Blizzard’s other big franchises Warcraft and StarCraft. The cartoony characters make it a better fit tonally on Mario’s machine compared to the satanic Diablo series. And the success of Splatoon I think proves the Nintendo audience is primed to enjoy this kind of team-based online multiplayer game.But for whatever reason, Overwatch on Switch isn’t happening, at least not yet. However, as games like Fast RMX, Tiny Metal, and Oceanhorn have proved, there’s totally a market for making a game on Switch close enough to a big franchise if the original is missing in action. Developer Hi-Rez Studios has always said Paladins is more of a Team Fortress 2 clone than an Overwatch clone, since Overwatch is also a Team Fortress 2 clone, but regardless Paladins is totally a good enough Overwatch on Nintendo Switch, now free.Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Paladins is a team-based multiplayer shooter where players control colorful characters with over-the-top abilities. While the characters all play very differently, they each fall into general classes like Damage and Support, so it pays to have a well-balanced team. Different modes include a standard team deathmatch and more complex objectives like moving a payload or holding certain territories. Playing more matches also advances you through a larger player progression system.AdChoices广告But even if it’s not particularly innovative, Paladins is a lot of fun. This “hero shooter” idea is just a great formula. It applies fantastical fighting game (or MOBA) style move variety and character mastery to a shooter, allowing for more interesting and dynamic characters. Using Buck’s massive leaps and shotguns requires different strategies than using Fernando’s charge attack and flamethrower or using Cassie’s dodge rolls and arrows. And as you play more with each character, you gain more ways to tweak their abilities and customize their loadouts. You can craft a very personalized playstyle.Of course, your ambitions may be throttled if you choose to play the free version of Paladins. You’ll be locked to a certain set of heroes as well as random others that become free for a limited time. Meanwhile, certain rewards you earn you can’t access until you pay to open your battle pass or whatever. But the more egregious pay-to-win elements of earlier versions have been removed, and the $30 price for all heroes is totally reasonable. It feels weird to say, but if anything it’s nice there’s a free-to-play version giving players an unlimited opportunity to really feel what the game is like before fully jumping in (or before you have to start paying for Nintendo Switch online).All these good qualities are true of all versions of Paladins, but the game especially stands out now on Nintendo Switch because there’s so little direct competition. Fortunately, the game doesn’t see that as an excuse to be lazy. Textures are blurrier compared to other versions but the 60 FPS framerate and connection are rock-solid which is crucial for a competitive online shooter, especially with cross-play. I felt like I could easily do wild plays like leaping off a horse and going into Lex’s rapid pistol special move against hapless opponents. I later learned new players are only practicing against easy bots until they reach a higher level. So you aren’t as good as you think you are.Part of my willingness to accept Paladins as a bootleg Overwatch is because I’ll never play either game at more than a casual level. I’m sure this bothers serious players as much as saying Super Smash Bros. and PlayStation All-Stars are the same bothers me. But if you have a Nintendo Switch and want something that’s 1. Like Overwatch and 2. Good in its own right, check out Paladins at literally no cost to you. Get in now before the upcoming battle royale spin-off Realm Royale inevitably sucks away all the team’s attention.As always, for more on Nintendo’s new console check out Everything You Need to Know About Nintendo Switch and Switch Games to Play Before Super Smash Bros.

Ajith and Shraddha Srinaths Nerkonda Paarvai clears censor testAjith and Shraddha Srinaths Nerkonda Paarvai clears censor test

first_imgAjith in Nerkonda Paarvai.PR HandoutAjith Kumar’s eagerly-awaited Nerkonda Paarvai has cleared the censor test. Well, the Tamil movie is now ready for worldwide release on August 8.As per reports, Nerkonda Paarvai was submitted to the regional censor board for certification a few weeks ago and it has now cleared for release by the officials with ‘U/A’ certificate. The Tamil movie deals about a serious issue that women are facing in the country and there are portions which the children should watch under parental guidance. Hence, the censor board members seem to have issued the said certificate. However, the makers are yet to formally announce the news.Nerkonda Paarvai is the Tamil remake of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu-starrer Hindi film Pink. The story deals around three modern women, who are falsely accused of a crime. How the patriarchal society treat them based on their dress and behaviours even as they fight it out the case in court forms the crux of the story.Pink had exposed the prevailing misogyny in society. The Tamil version is being tweaked to suit the image of Ajith without affecting the core theme.Shraddha Srinath, Abhirami Venkatachalam and Andrea Tariang play important roles in the H Vinoth-directorial film. Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor, the husband of late actress Sridevi, is funding the project.The film has Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music, Nirav Shah’s cinematography and Gokul Chandran’s editing.last_img read more

As physicians today are competing with hospital systems for the purchase of walk-in urgent care clinics, and forming multi-specialty clinics, Viztek was able to successfully capitalize on this trend with its RIS and PACS solutions. Additionally, the expansion of the Viztek DR product line, with the introduction of the ViZion + wireless DR panel and the rapid adoption of the Viztek U-Arm and straight-arm bolstered DR sales up 25 percent over the previous year.Introduced in late 2013, Viztek’s Exa PACS gained FDA-approval in 2014. The completely web-based technology is compatible with all devices and operating systems providing efficiency and productivity to hospitals, imaging centers and teleradiology groups via unprecedented PACS accessibility and utility for end users.In late 2014, Viztek announced that it was the first company to proactively license and provide true zero footprint viewing for radiologists and referring physicians. Not only can radiologists view reports regardless of the operating system or the age of the computer, Viztek has also added server-side rendering for the added speed of download.Also instrumental to the company’s 2014 growth was the introduction of the ViZion + wireless DR panel. The new DR panel delivers a cost-effective option for the urgent care, orthopedic and hospital settings. Viztek’s new U-Arm DR and Overhead Tube Crane (OTC) systems were unveiled for the first time in late 2014. Both systems were designed to maximize ease-of-use and versatility and will support the company’s continued DR market growth in 2015.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Konica Minolta Healthcare Partners With DiA Imaging Analysis for AI-based Cardiac Ultrasound Analysis DiA Imaging Analysis has partnered with Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. to expand analysis capabilities of… read more News | PACS | July 02, 2019 Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical docu read more News | PACS | June 26, 2019 Mini-PACS Solution for Image Management and Workflow Optimization ImageGrid Mini is a feature-rich, reliable and cost-effective image management and workflow optimization solution, pr read more Technology | Enterprise Imaging | July 05, 2019 Hyland Healthcare Adds ImageNext Imaging Workflow Optimizer to Enterprise Imaging Suite Hyland Healthcare is launching ImageNext, a vendor-neutral imaging workflow optimizer that combines intelligent imaging… read more Feature | Information Technology | June 27, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Smart Algorithm Extracts Data from Radiology Reports Radiology reports may contain information essential to figuring out a patient’s condition. read more News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more News | Enterprise Imaging | June 27, 2019 Ambra Health Announces Integration With Box Ambra Health announced an integration with Box to enable the sharing of medical imaging directly from within Box’s… read more News | February 02, 2015 Viztek Sees 20 Percent Year-Over-Year Growth in PACS/RIS/EHR Installs Expanded DR portfolio with addition of wireless DR panel and increased software sales boosts growth and bottom linelast_img read more

FOMC Votes No Change in Policy Foresees Slower GrowthFOMC Votes No Change in Policy Foresees Slower Growth

first_img While noting “”improvement in economic activity and labor market conditions,”” the “”Federal Open Market Committee””: (FOMC) voted Wednesday to continue its policy of near-zero interest rates and its $85 billion-per-month bond-buying program.[IMAGE]At the same time, the Federal Reserve’s own economic projections suggested the economy might not grow this year as fast as it expected just three months ago.In a statement concluding its two-day monetary policy meeting, the FOMC said it “”decided to await more evidence that progress will be sustained before adjusting the pace of its purchases.””The committee adopted the policy by a 9-1 vote, with only Esther George, president of the Kansas City Fed, dissenting. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard, who had joined with George in her dissents earlier this year, voted in the majority as he had at the July meeting.””The Committee sees the downside risks to the outlook for the economy and the labor market as having diminished, on net, since last fall, but the tightening of financial conditions observed in recent months, if sustained, could slow the pace of improvement in the economy and labor market,”” the FOMC said in its statement. “”The Committee recognizes that inflation persistently below its 2 percent objective could pose risks to economic performance, but it anticipates that inflation will move back toward its objective over the medium term.””The FOMC said its actions ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£should maintain downward pressure on longer-term interest rates, support mortgage markets, and help to make broader financial conditions more accommodative, which in turn should promote a stronger economic recovery and help to ensure that inflation, over time, is at the rate most consistent with the Committee’s dual mandate [of price stability and maximum sustainable economic growth].├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬ØFed Chairman Ben Bernanke had originally said the FOMC would wait until the inflation rate rose to 2 percent and the unemployment rate fell to 6.5 percent before the Fed would begin “”tapering””–that is, gradually tightening its stimulative monetary policy. In recent weeks, though, Bernanke hinted the FOMC might act before its targets were achieved. Bernanke came under criticism from some [COLUMN_BREAK]economists who suggested that by acting before its own criteria were met, the FOMC would damage its credibility.At the same time its statement was released Wednesday, the FOMC also released the economic projections of the members of the Federal Reserve and the Federal Reserve Bank presidents. (The president of the New York Fed is a permanent member of the FOMC along with four of the remaining 11 regional presidents.)The projections were slightly weaker than those released three months ago, with slower growth this year–GDP growing 2.0 percent to 2.3 percent compared with 2.3 percent to 2.6 percent forecast in June–and the higher range of GDP growth reduced in the next two years.The projections suggested the unemployment rate criteria for tightening monetary policy might be achieved next year with a projected unemployment rate of 6.4 percent to 6.8 percent, but the more solid target is anticipated in 2015, when the unemployment rate is expected to range between 5.9 percent and 6.2 percent.The 2 percent inflation target–as measured by the personal consumption index tallied by the Bureau of Economic Analysis–is not expected to be reached until after 2016.Even though its criteria for tightening monetary policy remain elusive, the FOMC gave itself some wiggle room.””In judging when to moderate the pace of asset purchases,”” the FOMC said in its statement, “”the Committee will, at its coming meetings, assess whether incoming information continues to support the Committee’s expectation of ongoing improvement in labor market conditions and inflation moving back toward its longer-run objective. Asset purchases are not on a preset course, and the Committee’s decisions about their pace will remain contingent on the Committee’s economic outlook as well as its assessment of the likely efficacy and costs of such purchases.””In other words: Even if the targets are not achieved, the committee said it might act if it believes the economy is on a course to achieve them.Still, the FOMC remained skeptical.””Some indicators of labor market conditions have shown further improvement in recent months, but the unemployment rate remains elevated,”” the committee statement said. “”Household spending and business fixed investment advanced, and the housing sector has been strengthening, but mortgage rates have risen further and fiscal policy is restraining economic growth. Apart from fluctuations due to changes in energy prices, inflation has been running below the Committee’s longer-run objective, but longer-term inflation expectations have remained stable.””_Hear Mark Lieberman on P.O.T.U.S. radio (Sirius-XM 124) Friday at 6:20 a.m. Eastern._ Fed,FOMC Votes No Change in Policy, Foresees Slower Growth Share Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Ben S.

first_img by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Sep 9, 2018 9:46 am PDT Last Updated Sep 9, 2018 at 12:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Lynda La Plante’s 1980s British crime series “Widows” had a curious hold of filmmaker Steve McQueen as a 13-year-old boy.The show was about a group of women who, after their criminal husbands are killed, band together to pull off the raid their dead spouses had planned. The women were, to young McQueen growing up in London, doing what they were deemed not to be capable of.“I was a person at that time who was deemed not to be capable, as well, being a young black boy at school and having to fight my own battles of stereotypes and people assuming things about me because of my appearance,” says McQueen. “I could relate to those women. I was going through the same thing.”More than three decades later, McQueen has adapted “Widows” into his much anticipated follow-up to the best-picture winning “12 Years a Slave.” While it preserves much of the original series, it also greatly expands its scope, transports the story to Chicago and richly populates its urban landscape with a sterling cast of Viola Davis, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Liam Neeson and Brian Tyree Henry.For one of the foremost makers of what could be called art films, “Widows,” with a script he penned with Gillian Flynn (“Gone Girl’), is an unexpected turn into genre filmmaking. Before the film, which 20th Century Fox will release Nov. 16, made its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, McQueen spoke about the ambitions behind “Widows.”AP: “Widows” might appear like a heist movie, but the genre seems like a mechanism for a complex investigation into gender, race and politics.McQUEEN: It’s a roller coaster ride but it brings to the surface things that are very much there. It’s what we know. When you think of the ’70s, you think of “Chinatown” and “The Godfather” — I’m not comparing my picture to those pictures at all — but these were real, gritty movies within a genre, and these were the biggest movies of their time. They brought the audience with them, as well as brought the sophistication. They catered to the high and to the low. I don’t think there’s any high and low. I think there are just good movies and bad movies, and that’s it.AP: How did you choose the setting?McQUEEN: I wanted to channel Chicago in all its complexities. Chicago is such a rich environment. The whole cross section of that political base, it all fascinated me. I’m surprised there aren’t much more movies made about it because it’s there for the taking. It’s like New York in the ’70s. I love that wonderful phrase, which is very Chicagoan and which might go back to Al Capone: “I gotta guy.” It’s all about getting something in a crafty way. “I gotta guy.” Fantastic!AP: The world in your films, from “Hunger” to “12 Years a Slave” to “Widows,” seems a mean and nasty place, where it takes just about killing yourself to keep your integrity.McQUEEN: They all deal with trying to defy one’s environment that the characters find themselves in, and how do we transcend that environment. And right now the world is a bit of a dark place. It is a bit of a difficult environment to exist in. It takes little sparks for us to keep our head above water.AP: Would you have wanted your next film after “12 Years a Slave” to come sooner than five years later?McQUEEN: You mustn’t forget, I did three films in five years. I was a little bit of a factory. The fact that I had this project with HBO that didn’t work out was a bit of a shame. For me, it was a big shame. I was doing art projects in that time as well. It was a bit of a break for sure. But I had been on a treadmill and it was good to have that time to reflect. It was imposed on me, in a way, because of what happened at HBO. But at the same time, you embrace the possibilities of a situation.AP: This is a studio film…McQUEEN: No, it’s not. Well, it’s a studio film but I could do what I wanted. When I think of studio films I think of something else. I don’t know what that means. Basically, the studio gave me the money to make what I wanted to make. If that makes it a studio film, then so be it. I was the instigator of “Widows.” The fact that they wanted to put money into it, great.AP: Your camera movement seems a blend of coolly observant and frighteningly intimate. There are shots you hold and hold.McQUEEN: I always feel like I’m a kind of Tai chi director. The environment or the location has to tell me what it wants. I don’t like to put my stencil on anything. I don’t like to dictate before I get to a situation. It’s very much a collaboration with the environment, with the actors, with what’s going on. Then we proceed in sort of translating the scene or the event. My dear friend Robby Muller, who passed away this year, said to me that a camera move should be as much effort as a cat jumping on the table. Just enough effort.___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: Q&A: Steve McQueen on his ’12 Years’ follow-up, ‘Widows’last_img read more

Write to Zeke J Miller at zekemiller@timecomAre you the type to squeeze in a morning run before breakfast Or hit the gym before dinner Working out on an empty stomach won’t hurt youand it may actually help depending on your goal But first the downsides Exercising before eating comes with the risk of "bonking"the actual sports term for feeling lethargic or light-headed due to low blood sugar "You might feel tired or edgy and you wont be able to work out as intensely as you would have if you had eaten something" says Douglas Paddon-Jones a muscle physiology researcher and a professor of aging and health at the University of Texas Medical Branch "A light amount of food will help you get through the workout session more comfortably and with more energy” (Here’s what to eat before a workout) It’s extra important for older adults over 55 to eat something before exercisingespecially when working out first thing in the morning "Throughout the night our body makes physiological adjustments so were able to survive and that includes breaking itself down to sustain our blood-glucose levels" says Nancy Rodriguez a professor of nutrition sciences at the University of Connecticut If you exercise in the am before eating she explains your body continues to operate in this "break-down state" which can lead to muscle lossa concern for many seniors But if your primary exercise goal is weight loss exercising on an empty stomach may come with some promising perksthough more research is still needed TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now "Theres some research to support the idea that working out in a fasted state can burn more fat [than exercising in a fed state]" Paddon-Jones says One 2013 study of 64 people with obesity found that fasting every other dayeating just 25% of their typical daily calorieswhile doing an aerobic training program led to greater weight loss than diet or exercise alone But the evidence is mixed Some studies have also failed to find weight-loss advantages associated with fasting when compared to traditional diets Other research suggests that skipping breakfast may be bad for your health Even when fasting studies found benefits the experiments were tightly controlled and the people in them had help from nutrition scientists to ensure they got all the nutrients their bodies needed Paddon-Jones points out The hype about fasted cardio may also not prove true for everyone "You see some people advocating for fasted exercise on blogs and lifestyle sites but these people tend to be young and in amazing physical shape" he says "Every other part of their diet and lifestyle is dialed in they have no health issues and when they eat what theyre eating is super-high quality and carefully regulated" On the other hand when an "average Joe" attempts a fasted-cardio plan without proper planning or professional oversight he may run the risk of nutritional deficiencies or unhealthy body composition changes Paddon-Jones explains Again adults over 50 need to be careful fasting before a workout "Protein recommendations tend to be higher for older adults and that protein may be more beneficial when spread throughout the day" says Shivani Sahni director of the nutrition program at Harvard Universitys Institute for Aging Research "I think a lot more work needs to be done on intermittent fasting and exercise before we can say ‘yes this works well for this type of individual’" For people who aren’t athletes fueling up with food before a workout may be the best way to get the most fat-burning benefit Rodriguez recommends a small pre-exercise snack that combines protein and carbohydrates "Have a half a banana with a spoonful of peanut butter or a hard-boiled egg" she suggests You dont want to fill up; you just want to give your body a burst of energy to power your training session After you exercise drink some waterbut wait 60 to 90 minutes before eating "Youre trying to take advantage of your elevated metabolic rate post-exercise so if you can go an hour or an hour and a half without eating youll maximize the fat-burning response" she says This is general advice of course If youre body-building or training for a marathonor if you have a metabolic disease like diabetesyou should speak with a doctor or registered dietitian to design a plan that suits your needs Contact us at editors@timecomK.Chapple said she was happy to see diversity brought up in a visible way.
