Macho Era in Warner Bros. is Over


Around the turn of this century, everything looked so promising for women. Twenty years after Sherry Lansing had broken the glass ceiling — well, one of many glass ceilings — when she became the first female production president at a major studio (20th Century Fox), other women were all around, their names popping up in any conversation about leadership roles.
Stacey Snider was named chairman of Universal Pictures in 1999; Amy Pascal got a parallel job at Sony Pictures in 2003, four years after she had become chairman of Columbia. Their gender, just like that of the other women who started to run networks and cable companies and production houses, didn’t seem to matter.
Then something went wrong. Rather than see a wave of women join them at the top, the movie business, at least, took a step back. Brad Grey replaced Lansing at Paramount and in turn was succeeded by Jim Gianopulos; Tom Rothman walked into Sony when Pascal walked out; and suddenly only one woman was left running a studio, Donna Langley at Universal, and even she had to report to a man, Jeff Schell.
For every leap forward, it seems, Hollywood feels compelled to take a leap back. For every giant wave that carries it toward a more egalitarian future, a monstrous undertow sucks it toward the past.
Change has taken place, for sure; but at the summit of the industry, it’s moved at a glacial pace. The moguls who make the critical decisions may like to have women working for them — but put the emphasis on for, not with.
Nowhere has that been truer than at Warner Bros. Like so many other studios, it has retained a distinct culture over the years, almost regardless of who’s in charge. It’s operated as a fortress, impregnable and often impervious to the shifts coursing through society at large.
That’s been the case ever since its earliest days, when it was founded by four warring siblings — all brothers, in case you didn’t remember — and it’s continued through the imperial reign of Steve Ross and on through the monarchical era of Bob Daly and Terry Semel. Even under the relatively enlightened leadership of Alan Horn and Barry Meyer, the studio had trouble shedding an identity that had defined it for decades: as an empire of men, with only a few select women invited to sit in the private dining room where the studio chiefs held sway, but never at the head of the table.
Now, overnight, that’s over. With the June 24 appointment of Ann Sarnoff as chair and CEO (replacing the ousted Kevin Tsujihara), this bastion of testosterone is on the point of undergoing a chemical shift.

Giannis Antetokounmpo - MVP

Illustration for article titled Giannis Antetokounmpo Is Your 2018–19 NBA Most Valuable Player

Monday night Milwaukee Bucks destroyer of worlds Giannis Antetokounmpo became the first European import to win the NBA Most Valuable Player award since Dirk Nowitzki in 2007, and the first NBA player ever to win MVP after having won the NBA’s Most Improved Player, which Giannis won after the 2016–17 season. Giannis’s acceptance speech was rather emotional

Houston’s James Harden spent the first half of the season as the overwhelming favorite for the award, and as in Russell Westbrook’s 2017 MVP season, there will surely be a vocal segment of Harden fans who’ll argue that he was robbed. Harden led the league in scoring by more than eight points per game, and produced a blistering 61.6 true shooting percentage on Herculean 39.9 percent usage. The Rockets disappointed slightly in the standings, but Harden’s season was one for the record books, and he would’ve made a perfectly deserving MVP.
But Giannis led his Bucks team to the NBA’s best record, and top five rankings in both offensive and defensive efficiency, and was enough of a dominant defensive force to finish in the top three in Defensive Player of the Year voting, while putting up some ridiculous offensive numbers of his own. In the end the voting was fairly decisive in favor of Giannis although some can’t rule out the Rockets producing audit results discrediting the final tally.

Cloud gaming: Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud defined

Image result for Cloud gaming: Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud defined

Sony. Nintendo. Microsoft. Google. Amazon. Walmart. Verizon. electronic Arts. Nvidia.
every of those companies are giants in their respective fields — and every single one of them is or is said to be checking out tech that may exchange the way video video games are played, allotted, and bought.
Some organizations have announced publicly — hey there Google and Microsoft — while others are quietly experimenting at the back of closed doors. but each and every enterprise is as a minimum hedging in opposition t a future the place discs, downloads, even consoles are not any longer required, since you'll movement video games across the information superhighway as quite simply as you circulation your favourite Netflix demonstrate.
It's known as cloud gaming, and it's not definitely a new thought: over the last decade, the tech's been laughed at time and again as a result of technological and economic constraints. however this time, it feels like the celebrities may additionally have eventually aligned to deliver cloud gaming to the world.
what is cloud gaming, precisely?
today, you slide a disc into your online game console, or down load a game's information onto a force. Your video game only looks pretty much as good and handiest runs as quickly because the processors internal your field.
With cloud gaming, that "container" lives in a datacenter full of servers, miles and miles away. You move games, just like you'd movement a YouTube or Netflix video, as a series of compressed video frames — only now, these video clips are reacting to your inputs. every time you press a button in your personality to bounce, that input gets sent to a far off server, tells the video game what you've performed, and sends you a brand new video frame that indicates you the effect. Multiply by using 30 or 60 frames per 2nd, and you've bought a video.
That sounds... complex. Does any of that really work?
sure! and never best within the lab. We've been checking out early cloud gaming solutions within the US, Europe, and Japan for just about a decade now, and it's best getting simpler to play games that don't in reality run on a box in front of you. One Verge editor has pledged to beat the notoriously problematic Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice the use of nothing however video game streaming features, and he's already midway via.
what is a Stadia and how do I explain it to my folks, who should be purchasing me an account?
Stadia is Google's new cloud game streaming carrier launching November, and it's instantly regarded one of the front-runners within the existing wave of cloud gaming as a result of, neatly, it's Google.
just about, Stadia is like having a online game console within the cloud that you should access from any gadget. believe of it like how Netflix is a DVD participant within the cloud — Stadia works in a similar means, but for games. At launch, you'll be capable of use it on laptops or PCs with a Chrome browser, Pixel three and 3a telephones, and a Chromecast ultra dongle that plugs into the HDMI port on the returned of your tv. Like Netflix, that you would be able to start playing to your mobile, than decide upon up for your tablet, computer, or television once you've received a bigger monitor convenient. Or the opposite direction around.
So I pay a month-to-month payment and get entry to a library of Stadia games?
sure, however's extra advanced than that. There are three different ways to get your repair:

  • Pay $9.ninety nine a month for a Stadia professional subscription that includes a extremely restrained library — simply fate 2 to birth
  • purchase Stadia games for full price on good of your $9.99 subscription (unless 2020, when the subscription isn't any longer required)
  • sign up for further subscriptions (variety of like easy methods to subscribe to HBO via Hulu) to get entry to plenty of distinct games.

  • We don't yet comprehend exactly how many video games will a part of the Stadia professional subscription library or what number of third-parties will present their personal bundles and subscriptions on good, but Stadia is principally about purchasing video games at the moment.
    Wow, that's unnecessarily perplexing. i assumed this turned into speculated to be like Netflix?
    best in terms of how the video games are dropped at you — not necessarily the library of games you're paying for. Sony's playstation Now cloud gaming service is a bit extra like Netflix, with a huge back catalog of 750+ PS2, PS3 and PS4 video games which you can stream for $20 a month or $one hundred a 12 months, however Sony doesn't put its company-new heavy hitters there.
    Who else is a "front-runner" in cloud gaming?
    Microsoft. Heard of xCloud?
    sure. How is xCloud distinct from Stadia?
    xCloud is Microsoft's personal online game streaming carrier. It's going head-to-head with Google Stadia and a lot of others. lots like Stadia, it's also a video game console in the cloud, and Microsoft is literally sticking Xbox One S consoles in datacenters to movement video games to your contraptions, as opposed to rolling out beefy online game servers like Google. Microsoft hasn't offered up a whole lot assistance on how you may get xCloud, but it surely's planning to will let you circulate video games to phones this October in the first public trials.
    Wait, i assumed I heard that xCloud would circulate games from my Xbox One. Or probably that next-gen project Scarlett console. explain?
    Microsoft is at the moment using older Xbox One S consoles as the constructing blocks of its cloud gaming service, however Microsoft possibly doesn't need that lessen-performance hardware to define how respectable xCloud video games can seem and suppose.
    in the brief time period, the company's doubling down on whatever thing it's already doing, and some thing Sony psdoes as neatly: mean you can move games from your personal console to different devices on your home. Microsoft's calling that function "Console Streaming," however the language the enterprise used at E3 made it easy to confuse with the higher xCloud service.
    within the long run, Scarlett will form part of the way forward for Microsoft's xCloud provider, possibly changing those historical Xbox One S boards with newer Scarlett boards to help the very latest video games that should be available on Microsoft's subsequent-technology Xbox console. one of the crucial benefits to subscribing to a cloud streaming provider: you don't ought to pay for a brand new field each few years to get up-to-date hardware.
    So what games will I be able to play on Stadia and xCloud?
    Google has printed that at the least 30 games may be playable on Stadia when it launches in November, and these include titles like fate 2, Baldur's Gate 3, The Division 2, Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Metro Exodus. That's now not many to start off with, however as Stadia's recognition grows so may still the listing of games.
    Microsoft hasn't revealed accurate launch video games or pricing for xCloud, however the company has always spoke of that xCloud will guide any present Xbox One online game, so it's protected to count on any game that runs on an Xbox One S presently will be attainable on xCloud one way or the other.
    How much will Stadia and xCloud charge and when can i get them?
    Google's Stadia service is launching in November, and you'll need to pay $130 to be some of the first to entry the provider. Google is launching its $130 Stadia Founder's edition which includes its customized Stadia controller, a Chromecast ultra, and three months of top rate provider. The controller will even be offered one at a time for $69, however that you could additionally use an Xbox or PS4 controller on a telephone or computing device.
    as soon as the three months of Founder's version service is over, Stadia will be priced at $10 a month for the Stadia pro service, with a view to encompass access to a couple games (we don't know how many simply yet) and 4K / 60fps streaming. Google is additionally planning to launch a Stadia Base service that's free however confined to 1080p streaming and stereo sound next 12 months.
    Microsoft has now not yet announced pricing or subscriptions for xCloud, but you should be capable of flip your personal Xbox One right into a free streaming server to your own video games later this yr. Microsoft is planning public trials of xCloud in October.
    What if I already pay for a Microsoft video game subscription like Xbox game circulate?
    Microsoft's Xbox game circulate is anticipated to be a part of the massive push for its xCloud video game streaming carrier. online game flow comprises greater than one hundred games for a $9.99 monthly subscription, however they're no longer streamed to Xbox consoles at this time — you ought to down load them. Microsoft simply launched Xbox video game circulate gold standard, and it contains Xbox game move for Xbox and now workstation, alongside Xbox reside Gold access for $14.ninety nine per 30 days.
    Microsoft has been focusing heavily on Xbox online game move, and it'll absolutely play a huge role in xCloud game streaming. We're simply now not certain how lots it is going to all charge and when it could be attainable.
    What if I've already bought some of these games on INSERT PLATFORM here?
    It's no longer clear even if Microsoft will let you circulate video games you already personal with out repurchasing them — unless you're streaming them from your personal Xbox, or possibly in the event that they're part of your game flow subscription (see above).
    You'll really should purchase a new copy with Google's Stadia, the enterprise has told us.
    but there's an opportunity you'll be able to take your latest growth with you to the cloud. Google is making it occur with destiny 2, and says it's in talks with extra publishers as smartly. Nvidia's GeForce Now beta means that you can pull to your saved games from Steam's cloud, as a different illustration.
    is that this going to be like tv subscription functions the place I deserve to subscribe to xCloud, Stadia, PS Now, and so forth, to get the entire games?
    regrettably, yes. content homeowners and publishers will decide on and decide the place to region their video games, and there's sure to be games a good way to handiest be obtainable on select platforms. that you could't play a lot of Sony's video games until you own a psfour, and Microsoft's first-birthday party games are sometimes restrained to Xbox and laptop. The equal struggle will play out in the game streaming era, and you can find you'll deserve to subscribe to distinctive capabilities to play every video game viable.
    We've already began to look this with Ubisoft venturing into video game subscription features, and each EA's origin access for notebook and EA access for console. Time will tell which service manages to be essentially the most time-honored and get the enormous majority of titles, but even recognition isn't any assure: much like how Netflix doesn't have each tv demonstrate or film, nor will Stadia or xCloud.
    Isn't Apple doing online game streaming?
    Apple is making an attempt its personal video game subscription provider for Macs and iPhones, however these games gained't be streamed to instruments just yet. Apple's provider is awfully comparable to Microsoft's existing Xbox online game pass subscription, and it will have exclusives that are handiest attainable on Apple's contraptions.
    good enough, so why would I pay for a console in a datacenter instead of simply possessing one below my television?
    There are a lot of explanations to nonetheless personal a console, and additionally lots of theoretical benefits to a online game streaming provider. Most of this will depend on what video games you're looking to play and the place you play them. in case you still exceptionally play on a tv at home, a console is usually your optimum wager presently, but if you are looking to go on vacation and resume those same games on your telephone, services like Stadia and xCloud could be the answer. right here's a shortlist of advantages:

  • Play on any display — telephones, laptops, pills, TVs, you identify it. Even an ancient vulnerable computer or a mobile can run essentially the most up to date video games.
  • The energy of a dedicated gaming notebook, while not having to construct, buy, or lift one round.
  • No awaiting video games to down load or replace — or at the least ridiculously speedy download speeds.
  • are attempting a game as with no trouble as clicking an commercial, by launching a real, playable online game in an internet browser window — Stadia mainly is promising this
  • Fewer approaches for cheaters to prosper, due to the fact they commonly can't mod the video game.
  • Shorter load times inside games, depending on the cloud gaming business's servers. Some can have you playing inside seconds.
  • As quickly as a cloud gaming business enhancements its servers, you get extra energy too.
  • If any individual builds games chiefly for the cloud, they could be extra wonderful than anything else you could run on a single workstation or console at the moment.
  • What's the capture?

    There are truly some drawbacks to be privy to with cloud online game streaming. the two biggest ones are "how does this work for americans with out wonderful web infrastructure" and "who's going to pay for those beefy servers?"
    basically, somebody's gotta pay for the time you're taking part in a online game on that far flung server, and customarily that a person's going to be you. Cloud gaming organizations have experimented with full-rate game purchases, subscription prices, and sponsored timed demos — in fact an ad for a game that's the game — however no one's come across a particularly inexpensive solution somewhat yet.
    You'll also need a superior web connection for cloud gaming, and we're now not simply talking download speeds. The huge difficulty is latency, or how lengthy it takes for the far flung server to reply to your commands. if you're enjoying single player video games then you definately could not observe this as lots, but multiplayer games usually tend to fall sufferer to any lag between you and the datacenter streaming your video game. this will truly rely on issues like the route your internet site visitors takes to reach the servers, and the way a ways these servers are physically found out of your condo.
    When latency is dangerous, cloud video games believe essentially unplayable — and it's particularly frustrating if it happens in the center of, say, a boss battle. Even in these days's most efficient-case situations, cloud video games aren't always responsive enough for twitchy video games or aggressive combatants.
    Plus, there are these further concerns:

  • similar to if you happen to all started observing Netflix in its place of buying DVDs, you received't own the video games anymore — and there's nothing that necessarily maintains them from going away.
  • even though you're streaming at 4K resolution, you're not getting 4K worth of pristine pixels — when streaming suppliers compress those photographs, it provides noisy artifacts, that could do things like smear the sky or tremendously limit how some distance that you could certainly see far-off objects in a video game.
  • Cloud gaming could use lots of information — might be more than streaming your normal Netflix demonstrate, considering that you're streaming at 60 frames per second instead of the 24 or 30 commonplace to film.

  • both Microsoft and Google haven't revealed any magic so that it will fight a lot of these issues, but Google says its Stadia controller will connect directly to servers (by means of your Wi-Fi) to help reduce latency.
    Will these work on my crappy cyber web connection?
    Google says not less than 30Mbps is required to play video games in 4K at 60fps on Stadia, and games operating at 1080p will need a 20Mbps connection — however once more, it's additionally about how lengthy it takes for a round travel between the servers and where you're playing. That's why Google and Microsoft are already regarded entrance-runners in this space — they have got the information superhighway infrastructure in region to make that trip shorter than many rivals.
    but that's also why satellite tv for pc information superhighway connections are probably out, and cellular connections aren't really useful, however you're seeing speeds a long way stronger than DSL. (5G cellular networks might also exchange issues, though.) And with shared networks like public Wi-Fi, you'll be on the mercy of every person else on the network — if a person begins down load or uploading big info or streaming video, your online game stream may turn into unplayable.
    Will this totally damage my cyber web facts cap, which is imposed on me by using evil Comcast?
    doubtless.
    35Mbps = 15.75 GB/hour, which means you may burn via a 1TB month-to-month records cap in below 65 hours of 4K game streaming on my own. That may also sound like loads of game time, however play one final myth and also you might now not have statistics left for anything else.
    Do all of those services work on all of my contraptions?
    Google's Stadia provider will simplest work on TVs by the use of the Google Chromecast extremely at launch, and it will be restrained to Google's Pixel three and 3a contraptions on the Android facet. more contraptions will be supported sooner or later, however's unclear if the iPhone will support Stadia any time quickly. You'll even be capable of use a Chrome browser on a Mac, windows computer, or Chromebook to access Stadia.
    Microsoft's xCloud service will enter trials in October later this yr, and the business says it plans to allow americans to look at various it on phones and not on TVs or by means of Xbox consoles. Microsoft hasn't released any advice on what Android gadgets will aid xCloud, or no matter if the company could have an iOS app capable for its trials.
    Why is there a brand new console technology if each Sony and Microsoft have streaming capabilities?
    These online game streaming services are nevertheless very early in their development, and never wholly fleshed out. each Sony and Microsoft be aware of that hundreds of thousands of americans will purchase subsequent-technology consoles for the raw performance and high fidelity photos advancements that these consoles at all times offer each and every era. It's nevertheless a vivid and fit market, and avid gamers will likely need a choice of console, pc, or game streaming for many years to return yet.
    Plus, physical online game discs nonetheless aren't dead — each Sony and Microsoft have hinted that their subsequent consoles will still include optical drives. now not everyone has a very good information superhighway connection, so it's nonetheless too early to abandon the actual game market wholly.
    Didn't we are attempting this all earlier than?
    video game streaming has existed for a decade, and Sony wound up buying early gamers OnLive and Gaikai to aid vigour its playstation Now service. nevertheless it by no means in fact went away: Nvidia has been checking out editions of its GeForce Now streaming carrier for years, and there are a whole lot of smaller rivals like Shadow, Vortex, Parsec, and a lot of extra. None of these have taken over average game consoles just yet, however with bigger gamers like Microsoft, Google, and even potentially Amazon getting concerned, things can be very different sooner or later.
    The whispers of Google, Microsoft, and Amazon getting back into cloud gaming are what spurred large activity in the conception once again. They're the three businesses with the infrastructure and capabilities to carry cloud and web services to millions around the globe, and the idea's starting to think inevitable now that two of the three have officially bought in.

    The Brother K Melee - Lonesome Bridge #Flyah Submission


    Originally titled Brother K, the Brooklyn-based band was founded in 2011 by guitarist/songwriter/English PhD candidate Lucas Kwong. Dissatisfied with the volume of his solo folk efforts (not loud enough), Kwong decided to meld the garage rock revivalism of his adolescence with his childhood devotion to Fifties rock 'n' roll.

    The project began life as a blues/rockabilly two-piece with David Cornejo on drums, before evolving to embrace punk, psychedelia, and 2 other band members. On the 2016 compilation SEEK ASSEMBLY, the group began channeling its influences - Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Nirvana, The Stooges, The White Stripes, Hamburg-era The Beatles, garage-gospel acts like The Caravans - into a sound reflective of its new name: tight as a brotherly embrace, savage as an unquiet riot. On the upcoming Summer 2019 EP, Get Inside, the quartet polishes its sound further as they deliver unmedicated anthems for dead saints, megalomaniacs, and that one dream you can't seem to shake. Hooks, howls, heartache: vive la MELEE.
