Pasadena Publisher Signs with Ovation TV for ‘Chronicles of Ara’ Series

first_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Business News Authors Joel Eisenberg and Stephen Hillard of Pasadena-based Incorgnito Publishing Press have signed a development deal with Ovation TV for the development and airing of a mini-series based on their “Chronicles of Ara” series.The eight-hour mini-series will be based on the first two novels of the duo’s eight volume series, with an option to explore the remaining books for a possible ongoing series and further spinoffs.The books center on Ara, a muse who inspires all of art and invention, but who is corrupted upon a tragic loss. Using parallel storylines, the characters include some of history’s more renowned “darker authors” – J.R.R. Tolkien, Mary Shelley, Lewis Carroll, H.G. Wells, Edgar Allan Poe – as they write their greatest creations.“’The Chronicles of Ara’ is a fantastically imaginative series that explores the origins and repercussions of artistic creation,” said Scoot Woodward, Executive Vice President of programming and production at Ovation TV. “Its theme, of course, is perfectly suited for the only television network dedicated to the arts, but the story itself is so engaging and visual in its telling that it seems destined for a series.”“The end of the world begins when man is betrayed by his greatest creation: his art,” Eisenberg says. “What better outlet than Ovation, a network devoted to the arts and culture, to explore this concept?”Hillard adds that “we run with the concept of dangerous art — all those video games, novels, music, lyrics and so on that parents and teachers say are bad for you — and we respond, ‘Okay, we agree. All art is dangerous. Now what? What of the wars and cultures art inspires. What then?’”Ovation TV, based in Santa Monica, is an independent television and digital media company dedicated to celebrating and supporting all forms of arts and culture. Ovation TV selectively curates and airs arts-related series, specials, documentaries and films. 8 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News HerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyGained Back All The Weight You Lost?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyKate Beckinsale Was Shamed For Being “Too Old” To Wear A BikiniHerbeautyHerbeauty Your email address will not be published.

Emmanuel Adebayor axed from Tottenham’s 25-man Barclays Premier League squad

first_img Tottenham’s decision to axe Adebayor comes even after missing out on the signing of West Brom striker Saido Berahino. They have already spent heavily elsewhere on support for Harry Kane, however, with South Korea’s Son Heung-min arriving from Bayer Leverkusen for £22million and Cameroon’s Clinton N’jie for £10million from Lyon. Adebayor has been a peripheral figure at White Hart Lane since the departure in 2012 of Harry Redknapp as manager. Redknapp brought Adebayor to Spurs during his last season at the club but, under his successor, Andre Villas-Boas, the Togan lost his first-team place. He was again a regular while Tim Sherwood was caretaker manager, before Mauricio Pochettino’s appointment and Kane’s form last season again meant his chances were limited. Reported interest from both West Ham and Villa, now managed by Sherwood, came to nothing before the conclusion of the summer transfer window. He is likely to continue earning his reported £100,000-a-week salary at least until January, which is when he will next be available to leave Spurs on a permanent basis. Emmanuel Adebayor has been left out of Tottenham’s 25-man squad for the Barclays Premier League. Press Associationcenter_img The 31-year-old former Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid forward had been expected to leave the club before the transfer deadline, but was unable to secure a move away. The decision leaves the former Togo international facing the prospect of no regular first-team football for the rest of the year. last_img read more

BCCI gets Mohammed Shami’s Visa Approved

first_imgNew Delhi: The US visa of Indian pacer Mohammed Shami, who is part of the India squad for the upcoming West Indies tour, got rejected initially because of his existing police record and charges of domestic violence. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) intervened to get the issue sorted and the visa was given to the fast bowler. Speaking to IANS, a senior BCCI functionary said that Shami’s visa had been rejected due to the police records after the family problems that the player had gone through, but the board wrote to the embassy and the matter was cleared. “There was some issue with the police verification part as he was involved in a problem with his wife. But the BCCI then wrote to the embassy and the matter was sorted,” the functionary said. IANSAlso Read: BCCI Officials Want Ravi Shastri To Continue As Head Coachlast_img read more

Ronaldo is 99-goal man

first_imgSilva’s far-post cross was forced towards goal by Diogo Jota, with Luxembourg goalkeeper Anthony Moris getting a hand to the ball before Ronaldo turned in from the goalline.– France sign off with win –Later on Sunday, world champions France wrapped up top spot in Group H as goals from Corentin Tolisso and Antoine Griezmann sealed a 2-0 win over Albania in Tirana.“I’m very dependent on the players,” French World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps said after his 100th game in charge.“It’s a personal pride. But it’s good to see what the players do together. At times, it can be a bit more difficult with changes to the players, injured players, but the spirit is there.”The French national anthem was roundly booed before kick-off as retribution for the error that saw the Andorran anthem played instead of the Albanian one when the teams met in September at the Stade de France.The visitors made a quick start on the pitch, though, as Bayern Munich midfielder Tolisso headed Griezmann’s free-kick into the bottom corner.The Barcelona star slotted in the second himself on the half-hour mark, before the dead rubber petered out in the second period, with Olivier Giroud going closest to a third by striking the post.The other games in the group saw Turkey, who had also already sealed qualification, beat Andorra 2-0, while Iceland edged to a 2-1 victory at Moldova.England rounded off an impressive campaign with a 4-0 thrashing of Kosovo.Goals from Harry Winks, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Mason Mount ensured England finished at the Group A summit, having scored 37 goals in just eight matches.“We know there is still a bit of work to do but I can’t fault the players in this campaign, they’ve been ruthless. We’re more settled with the group now,” said England manager Gareth Southgate.The Czech Republic are also through, but lost 1-0 in Bulgaria on Sunday.Share on: WhatsApp Ronaldo scores 99th Portugal goal as holders seal Euro 2020 spotParis, France | AFP | Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 99th international goal as reigning champions Portugal secured their place at the Euro 2020 finals on Sunday with a 2-0 victory away to Luxembourg, while France ended their qualifying campaign with victory.Bruno Fernandes struck the opening goal on 39 minutes before Ronaldo tapped in a scrappy second late on to clinch second place in Group B behind winners Ukraine, who drew 2-2 in Serbia.Iranian striker Ali Daei holds the world record with 109 international goals scored in 149 appearances between 1993 and 2006.“All records must be broken and I will beat that record,” said Ronaldo.Portugal became the 17th nation to qualify for next year’s multi-host tournament, which kicks off in Rome on June 12, joining the likes of world champions France, Spain, Italy and England.“We can’t give the match high marks for style,” said Portugal coach Fernando Santos, who admitted the heavy pitch made life challenging for his team.“I’m very happy for my players because the qualifying campaign has been more difficult than we expected.“We’re through to the finals of a major tournament for an 11th straight time. You’ve got to believe in these players.”Portugal knew they would book their place at Euro 2020 with a win or by matching Serbia’s result from their game in Belgrade.But they were made to work hard by a Luxembourg team ranked 96th in the world that notably held France to a 0-0 draw in 2018 World Cup qualifying.Sporting Lisbon midfielder Fernandes broke the deadlock before half-time, controlling Bernardo Silva’s pinpoint pass expertly before lashing in from 20 yards.Ronaldo, who smacked in a hat-trick in Thursday’s 6-0 thrashing of Lithuania, moved to the brink of his international century four minutes from time.last_img read more

He worked with Royal Albert Hall who also was clocked in 1:01.40.O’Neill, who won the Santa Anita Derby back-to-back in 2012 and 2013 with I’ll Have Another and Goldencents, also plans to enter California Derby winner So Conflated and California-bred Milton Freewater.            So Conflated also worked Friday morning, going four furlongs in 52.80.

He’s run well at a mile and a quarter.” Flamboyant won the Grade II San Marcos at a mile and a quarter in 2016.Asked if a mile and a half marathon was “a jockey’s race,” Gallagher quipped, “It’s a jockey’s race as long as they have the horse.”Brice Blanc, who rode Flamboyant in this year’s San Marcos, says he could have had better racing luck when beaten just 2 ½ lengths.“I got fanned out, but otherwise had a perfect trip,” said the native of Lyon, France. “The rider inside me kept moving out and pushed me a little bit, but my horse ran well anyway.“It’s going to be tough to beat Ashleyluvssugar, but if Flamboyant takes to the distance, I really have a good shot, I think.”The San Luis Rey, the ninth and final race: Inordinate, Corey Nakatani, 8-1; Power Foot, Kent Desormeaux, 15-1; Flamboyant, Brice Blanc, 6-1; Ashleyluvssugar, Gary Stevens, 5-2; Liam the Charmer, Victor Espinoza, 12-1; Syntax, Rafael Bejarano, 15-1; Buster Douglas, Santiago Gonzalez, 30-1; Papacoolpapacool, Edwin Maldonado, 10-1; Texas Ryano, Joe Talamo, 7-2; Itsinthepost, Tyler Baze, 5-1; Some in Tieme, Tiago Pereira, 30-1; and Site Read, Stewart Elliott, 30-1.

The lightly raced son of Smart Strike trained by Michael McCarthy for Mr. and Mrs. W.K. Warren Jr. bobbled at the start of his last race but closed from ninth and last to win anyway.“This distance is exactly what he wants,” Espinoza said of Liam the Charmer, bred byRon and Deborah McAnally. “The first time I rode him, at a mile and a sixteenth, it was too short for him (he raced willingly but finished fourth). He came back at a mile and a quarter and it was an ideal distance.“He broke a little slow but still won easy. I think a mile and a half is definitely going tohelp him.”ESPINOZA SAYS FAMILIARITY WOULD HELP ARROGATE, SMITHVictor Espinoza knows his way around Meydan Racecourse whether the saddle is on properly or not.Last year the Hall of Fame nominee who turns 45 on May 23 piloted California Chrome to victory in the $10 million Dubai World Cup despite riding with a saddle that slipped early on in the mile and a quarter race.Espinoza will be watching from afar Saturday when Arrogate is favored to vanquish 13 rivals in the World Cup under Mike Smith, no stranger to the Meydan course, although he is winless in his lone try in the lucrative event.Espinoza says it helps to have ridden over the course at least once before a race like the World Cup.“Things change,” Espinoza said, reflecting on what a difference a year makes for him. “Last year I won the race; now, I’m watching it. Everything is different about that track except the distance. That’s the same everywhere you ride. In Dubai you’re competing against a lot of different horses and you really don’t know how they’re going to run.“As for me, when I was there, I was just guessing what all the horses and jockeys were going to do. I just did my thing and I think that was best. If a jockey tries to study every single horse in the race, he’s really going to get confused.“I didn’t worry about any other horse or study anything. I just broke out of there and did my thing, but I think it helps a lot if a jockey has at least one race over that surface before the big race. Any other track in the world, it doesn’t matter.“It took me twice to really nail it, but the first race helped me a lot when I won last year. That was a bonus.” TOP NOTCH SHOULD FANCY A MILE ON SUNDAY J.

Jeremy Goyings, Sept. 26

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We were hoping to get to beans the middle of the week here. We have one variety ready but it depends on what these rains do now. We had two or three tenths overnight and this morning t is still drizzling. It is a typically droughty summer with a wet fall so far.We did shell some corn on Saturday. We had a variety that was deteriorating and dropping ears and we wanted to get it done before we started on food grade beans. We took off about 100 acres at 26% to 28% moisture. The stalks were strong but we had an issue where the butt of the ear didn’t pollinate right. When the ears dropped on the ground you couldn’t tell which end was the tip or the butt because kernels died off on both ends. When it does that the shank dies off and the plants start dropping ears. It was mostly happening on the end rows and there were a few in the field. We only had 100 acres of that and we got it all shelled and now we don’t have to worry about that. The yields were in the mid-150s and it would be a silver lining if that is the worst we run into. We saw a little ear mold in the stalks we were walking but none in the field that we shelled.There is another chance for rain on Wednesday. We are still dry so the water is getting away pretty quickly. We have a lot of leaves hanging onto the beans yet. Some of our neighbors were running 2.8s and still had a lot of green leaves yet but they were running at 11% moisture. For our non-GMO food grade beans we need them all dry and consistent.last_img read more

Important nitrogen timing decisions being made

Is the “augmented customer” the future of tech?

first_imgChanging customers, changing business modelsInherent with these technologies is significant changes in the relationship between service providers, vendors, and customers as a consequence of changing customer habits and business models.Perhaps one of the most evident will be the extended duration of the relationship, such as with those who purchase connected home products such as refrigerators and washing machines that may have a lifespan of 10-15 years. Ovum believes that it will be integral to this relationship to create a customer experience that feels effortless despite the complex mesh of artificial intelligence, IoT, media processing, edge computing, payments and security technologies in action behind the scenes.In particular, Ovum positions the home as the crucible of digital innovation. For example, although interactive audio speakers such as Amazon Echo and Google Home will account for only 192 million of the 4 billion smart home devices in use in 2021, their role for the augmented customer will be pivotal, heavily influencing how people use voice control, virtual assistants, and ambient computing, both in the home and beyond.The responsibility to protect customer well-beingThe protection of consumers with growth in technological innovation also cannot be understated. With growing power will come growing responsibility. The challenge of meeting the demands of the augmented customer will lead to a growing concentration of power into a handful of global consumer technology firms.According to Ovum, as consumers entrust more aspects of their lives to these technology firms, companies must not only defend against hacking, cyber-bullying, and other negative outcomes, but seek competitive advantage by protecting their users’ personal data, privacy, and overall digital well-being.Sage advice, since it was only last week that we saw a lawsuit filed in Chicago accusing the makers of Bose headphones of using an app to collect the listening habits of its customers and provide that information to third parties—all without the knowledge and permission of the users.Some of the challenges of future tech in a changing consumer landscape will extend to the ethics and laws underpinning the technological innovations. Already we’ve seen ethicists deliberating on the impact of robotic design, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars. It’s foreseeable that the augmented customer will face considerable challenges, and it’s only good planning and practice that will resolve them. Tags:#Amazon#Apple#AR#Future Tech#Google#home innovation#Ovum#VR#wearables Related Posts Follow the Puck A report released this week by global research and consulting firm Ovum has explored the changing identity of the customer in the digital age with the emergence of what they term the  “Augmented Customer” — an interconnectedness between customers, retailers, and technology.“With the number of connected smart devices expected to double thanks to advancements in smart home, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and wearable technology, customer behavior is going to change and organizations need to be prepared,” says Rob Gallagher, research director of the consumer services group for Ovum. “It starts with evaluating their business models and meeting changing customer expectations. Service providers, in particular, should be investing in content, convenience, and comfort – in the form of data and privacy protection – for their customers.”See also: Smart home technology adoption sees “big uptick” says new studyUnderpinning this growth is a number of key trends.Ovum predicts that by 2021, annual growth in the number of smartphones sold will have slowed from 30 percent in 2014 to a mere 3 percent in 2020, compelling companies like Apple, Samsung and others to drive innovation in the smart home, VR, and other emerging technologies that can provide new, more immersive, more personal, and more human-like experiences.As customers move away from mobile tech to more immersive, personalized experiences, Ovum believes that key technologies will integrate and interconnect, in particular, digital audio and visual tech; VR; AR; creativity tools; social messaging; virtual assistants; smart hubs and personal devices that are led by smartphones by amplified by wearables.
