A biopic about rock ’n’ roll front man Freddie Mercury and the band Queen led the North Amer ican box office this weekend, scoring a rare win over a new Walt Disney Co. fairy tale that would normally b e expected to dominate the competition #AceNewsDesk reports

Standard

#AceNewsDesk – Nov.06: The weekend’s major new releases made a clean sweep in the top three spots. “Bohemian Rhapsody,” from 20th Century Fox, collected $50 million from U.S. and Canadian theaters in its debut, Comscore Inc. estimated in an email Sunday: Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” garnered $20 million to land in second place, while the comedy “Nobody’s Fool,” from Viacom Inc.’s Paramount Pictures, was a step behind that with $14 million #AceNewsDesk reports

Critics were mixed on the Fox tribute to the British band, with some praising Rami Malek’s portrayal of Mercury, despite a distracting set of false teeth: That makes its win especially unique. Disney has successfully turned animated classics like “Cinderella” and “Beauty and the Beast” into live-action megahits. But its record with less-known titles isn’t so stellar. “A Wrinkle in Time” and “Christopher Robin” both struggled to attract fans this year.“Bohemian Rhapsody” was forecast by analysts at Box Office Pro to open with sales of $40.7 million.

The movie places Malek, who won an Emmy for his role in the TV series “Bad Robot,” at the center of the band’s story. It traces Queen’s meteoric rise and the creation of its biggest hits like “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Director Bryan Singer was replaced during production, though he retains his credit.The film cost $52 million to make, before marketing costs, according to Box Office Mojo, suggesting a profitable run for the picture. According to RottenTomatoes.com, 61 percent of critics recommended the movie.The better-than-expected opening “speaks to the universal appeal of Queen and their music,” said Chris Aronson, president of domestic distribution at Twentieth Century Fox.

The audience was evenly split by gender and 43 percent of the audience was in the 18-34 age range, highlighting how the film appealed to people who weren’t Queen contemporaries: The movie also exceeded expectations for international sales, collecting $122.5 million globally.Successes for the film division of 21st Century Fox Inc. will ultimately become wins for Disney. The Burbank, California-based entertainment giant is buying most of Fox’s entertainment assets in a $71 billion deal expected to close next year.The metrics for Disney’s “Nutcracker” movie aren’t so favorable and it may face a slog to break even during its theatrical run. Reportedly made for more than $100 million, the film was expected to open with sales of about $19.5 million, according to Box Office Pro. Just a third of critics recommended the movie, according to RottenTomatoes.com Based on the classic E.T.A. Hoffmann tale, “The Nutcracker” features a star-studded cast including Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren and Keira Knightley. In the film, a young girl is transported to a magical world of gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice. They search for a special key that will unlock a priceless gift, traveling to the ominous fourth realm.“We were looking for a stronger start, but it is a great family-friendly option for moviegoers as we head into the holidays,” said Cathleen Taff, president of theatrical distribution at Disney.With “Nobody’s Fool,” Paramount Pictures tapped into the rising popularity of comedian Tiffany Haddish in a feature written and directed by Tyler Perry.Haddish plays Tanya, an ex-con looking to get back on her feet with the help of her successful sister Danica, played by Tika Sumpter. She finds out Danica has been tricked into an online relationship and they go out to unmask her secret boyfriend. The $19 million movie was forecast to open fourth with sales of $14.4 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Just 20 percent of critics recommended the picture.

Twitter Communications Dorsey has told journalists and employees they are removing the ❤️ LI KE BUTTON as they feel it des not really show how person feels about the post or person …. but how this wi ll be achieved is still under wraps #AceNewsDesk reports

Standard

#AceNewsDesk – Oct.30: Those are your three options when it comes to engaging on Twitter. But apparently Twitter’s founder and CEO, Jack Dorsey (@jack), no longer likes … Likes.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ …… or 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔

At a recent Twitter event, Dorsey told a room full of employees and journalists Twitter would be removing the heart-shaped Like button “soon”.

Twitter Communications confirmed a Like button rework was being considered as part of an ongoing effort to clean up the platform — with the aim of incentivising “healthier conversations”.

As we’ve been saying for a while, we are rethinking everything about the service to ensure we are incentivizing healthy conversation, that includes the like button. We are in the early stages of the work and have no plans to share right now.

— Twitter Comms (@TwitterComms) 2:18 PM – Oct 29, 2018

When a user clicks the little heart-shaped button below a tweet, a notification is sent to the poster.

And according to Andrew Campbell, a researcher in the fields of e-mental health and cyberpsychology from the University of Sydney, Twitter’s biggest weakness has always been the heart.

“It’s a strong emotion to say you love something,” he said.

The feedback that notification gives the poster lacks context. Does the user like or love the content of the tweet? The ideology of the person? The fact that it might be funny? Or do they just like the person who posted it?

“More often than not, they don’t read the message, they just love that person. So they’re perpetuating a false likelihood of the ideology of that person … and more a popularity poll.” Dr Campbell said.

But will we miss our Likes when they’re gone?

From stars to hearts

The Like button started life as a star-shaped ‘favourite’, or ‘fav’.

However in 2015, Twitter changed the Favourite button to a Like because, “You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favourite“.

It was an effort to help grow the platform, with the heart being a more, “universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones.”

But with global growth, come global issues, and Twitter has been under fire for failing to address targeted harassment, for harbouring racist, sexist and homophobic content, and for being host to propaganda botnets and state-sponsored influence campaigns.

Users: hey can you get rid of the Nazis please

Twitter: ok sure, we’ve changed the stars to hearts for likes

Users: no no, zero Nazis please

Twitter: yep we’re getting rid of Vine

Users: nah hey, what about the Nazis

Twitter: ok ok fine, no more likes https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2018/10/28/twitter-remove-like-tool-bid-improve-quality-debate/amp/?__twitter_impression=true …

— Josh Butler (@JoshButler) 12:32 PM – Oct 29, 2018

Some users are already lamenting the future hypothetical drama that won’t transpire without a Like button.

Pls don’t take away Turnbull’s shady likes, or the “random politician likes a porn tweet and says they were hacked” news cycle. https://twitter.com/Telegraph/status/1056860881869553664 …

— Josh Taylor (@joshgnosis) 9:24 PM – Oct 29, 2018

During the 2018 Wentworth by-election, former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull “mistakenly” ‘liked’ a tweet in support of independent Kerryn Phelps, who was running against the party he once led.

And Liberal Party MPs Greg Hunt and Christopher Pyne’s accounts were both caught ‘liking’ tweets containing pornographic material.

In both cases the MPs claimed their accounts had been hacked.

Some Twitter users are worried about losing that ability to acknowledge a tweet without sharing it.

if they take away the like button i’ll start dming people “your 11:38 tweet tickled me. hope all is well”

— jaboukie young-white (@jaboukie) 2:04 PM – Oct 29, 2018

What’s next then?

While your Twitter feed may be ablaze with hot takes about the Like button, the love heart may not truly disappear.

According to Dr Campbell, it might become one of a variety of options.

He believes it’s likely Twitter will move towards a “universal visual language … using emojis”, allowing for more nuanced emotional feedback.

Such a change would echo similar moves by other online social and message platforms. Facebook increased the available reactions to a post from the iconic “thumbs up” to include six options in 2016, while other platforms like Slack or Twitch include a gamut of visual reactions.

Another option, of course, is for them to go the other way, as rapper Briggs suggests.

Twitter should remove the Tweet button. Really spice things up.

Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer and Safari are all dropping support for older versions of the onlin e security protocol TLS, used in practically any encrypted exchange online. While few people or machines are using the long-unsafe TLS 1.0 and 1.1, they’re still permitted in many connections — but no t for long #AceNewsDesk reports

Standard

AceNewsDesk – Oct.16: Transport Layer Security is a community-developed standard that got its 1.0 release nearly 20 years ago: It and its close relative, 1.1, have known flaws that make them unsafe to use for any secure communications. 1.2 addressed these major flaws in 2008 and is currently used by the vast majority of clients. 1.3, released earlier this year, both improves and streamlines the standard, but as yet has only a limited presence online as many servers and services haven’t been updated to support it #AceNewsDesk reports

The messy, musical process behind the web’s new security standard

Mozilla, Google, Microsoft and WebKit all made separate but similar announcements on their blogs, essentially that the old versions, 1.0 and 1.1, will be phased out by early 2020 — March specifically for some, which we can take as a general indicator for the others.

“Two decades is a long time for a security technology to stand unmodified,” wrote Microsoft’s Kyle Pflug. “While we aren’t aware of significant vulnerabilities with our up-to-date implementations of TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1, vulnerable third-party implementations do exist. Moving to newer versions helps ensure a more secure Web for everyone.”

As a user you don’t need to do a thing. The browsers and apps you use will work just as they have before — chances are they’re all using 1.2 already. Mozilla shared a chart showing that only a smattering of connections it sees use the earlier versions:

These connections, low by proportion but still numerous, could be lots of things. Legacy machines embedded here are there; old apps for which the security stack hasn’t been updated in years; hacked devices. It’s almost certainly not you or even your parents.

The long lead time is given because of the possibility (nay, inevitability) that there are some critical systems (for example in aging municipal infrastructure) that will cease to work because of this change. People need time to do a real audit, although they probably should have done it years ago.

This move should make everyone a little safer online, though everything will continue to act exactly as it did before. That’s by design.

#AceNewsDesk – Oct.16: The colours of Jupiter being monitored go beyond the normal human visual range to include both ultraviolet and infrared light: Featured from 2017, Jupiter appears different in near ultraviolet light, partly because the amount of sunlight reflected back is distinct, giving differing cloud heights and latitudes discrepant brightnesses #AceNewsDesk reports

FEATURED BLOGGER: Umbrella By //yadadarcyyada #Donnamazing

Standard

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

Dr. Seuss was correct (always, even if he might not have said this one, who knows, but he makes me smile).


Nothing can protect you from the storms of life, not enough the biggest umbrella (thanks Rhianna/Jay-Z, I’ll never get that song out of my head).

Put on those rain boots, galoshes, rubbers, overshoes, Wellies, whatever and go out and dance in the rain. Stand in it. Sit. Sleep.

Those storms are going to come, whether you fear them or not.
Change is going to come whether you fear it or not.
The lightning strikes of technology.
The rumbling thunder of racism.


The pelting hail of misinformation.
The sleet of corruption.

The hurricanes of hate.
The tornadoes of greed.
The slapping winds of regression.
Face them. Fight them. Survive them. But you can’t avoid them.

Ignoring something never made it go away. Get stormy, let your inner Mary Poppins out, and get on with it.

Too often in my life I’ve missed out on good, hell, amazing things because I was afraid. My fear stopped me. Siting on my shoulder, claws curled into my trembling flesh, cackling in my ear about how I was going to fail, how it wasn’t going to turn out anyway (it rarely did), I was going to get hurt, I was going flounder, or goof…

I was going to ruin things, even ruin my life https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/01/04/so-youve-ruined-your-lifenow-what/ I listened, avidly, to the voice of fear, so I missed out on smiling because it happened.

Much of what we fear stems from what we’ve learned, consciously or subconsciously.
Fear is actively used in: child-rearing, schooling, work, play, sports, politics, science, religion, movies, TV, books, business, and well, everything – then we’re shocked/surprised that fear rules us? Sometimes those fears are irrational and sometimes: “be afraid, be very afraid”.

So many fears…Fear of the dark comes from fear of the unknown (what’s out there I can’t see?).
Fear of strangers, immigrants, different races? Just people you don’t know yet.

Fear of snakes? Boo, hiss!
Fear of antiques? That gets old fast.
Fear of spiders? Sorry Charlotte, you know I love you (and your web), but you’re super creepy looking.

Fear of bananas? That’s bananas!
Fear of time? But it’s so wibbly wobbly timey wimey.

Fear of falling asleep? Probably good away after a good night’s sleep.
Fear of Trump? Well, duh, that’s rational.


Fear of failure? It has all happened before and it will all happen again.
Fear of success? I could live with that.

Fear of heights? You never want to get to the bottom of things with that one, but I could fall for that fear.
Fear of planes, trains, and automobiles? Really, it’s a hilarious movie.


Fear of books? What?!? The?!? No, just no.
Fear of fear? Nothing to fear but…

Yoda got it so right, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering”.

“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.” ~C.S. Lewis
Some days I feel I’ve lost something, or am missing something. In those times, I go about my life with a weird, niggling feeling gnawing at the base of my skull.
Slowly I come to the same conclusion, it feels like fear, but it’s grief. Loss of loved ones, loss of health, loss of what could have been, loss of civility, loss of decency, loss of honour, loss of dreams as they fade into changed expectations.


Yet, at these moments, “There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.” Jane Austen, my courage hasn’t always risen – I’ve been intimidated, dispirited, badgered, ruffled, browbeaten, disheartened, constrained…But sorry not sorry that’s a thing of the past (and it can stay there) https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/07/15/see-you-again/


Fear is likely even part of my procrastination issues https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/. I’ve made a promise, to myself, to let my courage flag fly, I can’t always let them grind me down…

I used to believe if I tried to control everything I could control, even conquer my fear. That I could stop bad things from happening. Nope. The only thing I can control is how I react to fear. How I react to the bad things.

I’m out of control and loving it (when I’m not terrified beyond words).
Trust yourself. Respect yourself. Not the Fear. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/08/17/all-were-asking-is-for-a-little-respect/

And I hope you know, you can always stand under my umbrella (not with the Umbrella Corporation, they suck), or dance with me in the rain.

Asteroid Ryugu from Hayabusa2 This big space diamond has an estimated value of over 80 billion dollars in va luable metals but its more important as it carries information on how our ‘ Solar System ‘ formed billions of years ago #AceNewsDesk reports

Standard

#AceNewsDesk – Aug.22: It’s only diamond in shape, though — asteroid 162173 Ryugu is thought to be composed of mostly nickel and iron.: Asteroids like Ryugu are interesting for several reasons, perhaps foremost because they are near the Earth and might, one day in the far future, pose an impact threat. In the nearer term, Ryugu is interesting because it may be possible to send future spacecraft there to mine it, thus providing humanity with a new source of valuable metals………………..Scientifically, Ryugu is interesting because it carries information about how our Solar System formed billions of years ago, and why its orbit takes it so close to Earth. Japan’s robotic spacecraft Hayabusa2 just arrived at this one-kilometre wide asteroid in late June #AceNewsDesk reports

https://t.me/nasa_apod/705: The featured image shows surface structures unknown before spacecraft Hayabusa2’s arrival, including rock fields and craters. Within the next three months, Hayabusa2 is scheduled to unleash several probes, some that will land on Ryugu and hop around, while Hayabusa2 itself will mine just a little bit of the asteroid for return to Earth #AceSocialMediaNews

Three daughters – LaToya, Rebbie, and, most famously, Janet – all fashioned their own pop careers under Jackson’s management, with varying levels of recognition.

Jackson was the architect of his children’s early successes, but some of them would later say he drove them with a zeal that bordered on abuse, with Michael and others alleging bullying, physical abuse and punishing work schedules.

Jackson later admitted that he had whipped Michael, but denied it could be categorised as a beating. “I whipped him with a switch and a belt. I never beat him. You beat someone with a stick,” he told the BBC’s Louis Theroux in 2003.

The interview made headlines after Jackson said in response to a question about Michael, “We don’t believe in gays. I can’t stand them.”

The Jackson family was famously riven over the years by internal strife, which often played out in the full glare of the public eye, with various estrangements and arguments over money making their way through the courts.

Speaking to the Daily Mail before his father died on Wednesday, Jermaine Jackson said some members of the family were unable to gain access to Jackson in his final days.

“No one knew what was going on – we shouldn’t have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this,” he said.

“We have been hurting. We were not being told where he was and couldn’t get the full picture.”

Early life

Jackson was born in 1928 in Fountain Hill, Arkansas and was the eldest of five children.

He described his own father, a university professor, as a domineering and strict presence.

Jackson nurtured ambitions of being a boxer and later played guitar with a blues band, The Falcons, but failed to win a recording deal.

In 1949 he married Katherine Scruse, a former classmate from Washington High School in East Chicago, Indiana. She raised their children while Jackson worked at a local steel mill.

In 1957, they lost a child, Brandon, to stillbirth. He would have been Marlon’s twin brother.

During the 1960s, Jackson took control of his sons’ burgeoning musical efforts and the Jackson 5 was born, later signing to Motown records in 1967.

The Jackson 5 splintered as Michael’s solo career took off and he distanced himself from his father’s management.

Jackson focused instead on his daughter Janet, who went on to become a massive star.

Jackson reportedly carried on a decades long extra-marital affair with Cheryl Terrell, a secretary 20 years his junior. The pair had a daughter, his 11th child, Joh’Vonnie, who is now 43, but Jackson remained married to Katherine all along.

He is survived by Katherine, who is 88, and nine of his 11 children.

For the first time, music videos will count towards the official singles chart, in a shake-up to the way music consumption is measured for the weekly countdown: Both free and paid-for streams will qualify, although subscription services will carry a heavier weight in calculations: One hundred paid-for streams will equate to one sale, but it will take 600 ad-funded streams to make up the same figure #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsDesk – June.25: Previously the chart was compiled from sales of downloads, CD and vinyl, and streams of audio tracks: Now music video streams and downloads will all count – as long as they are an official video accessed via YouTube, Apple, Tidal or Spotify #AceNewsDesk reports

Both free and paid-for streams will qualify, although subscription services will carry a heavier weight in calculations.

One hundred paid-for streams will equate to one sale, but it will take 600 ad-funded streams to make up the same figure.

The changes were first considered four years ago, when audio streaming began to be included in the calculations.

Both video and audio streams will now be weighted equally.

The Official Charts Company chief executive Martin Talbot said: “In the modern era, artists are increasingly multi-faceted creators, with a highly developed visual sense running in parallel with their music.

“The addition of video ensures that The Official Singles Chart reflects the creativity of the artist in the broadest way possible – and music fans’ engagement with that vision.”

Established audio services Apple and Spotify have both recently added dedicated music video sections to their platforms.

The change also comes just before YouTube is to launch its own subscription service.

Since launching in 2005, YouTube has amassed more than one billion users across 88 countries, proving particularly popular with a younger audience.

The most watched music video of 2017 was Despacito, which has been viewed more than 5.2 billion times.

The song – which translates as “slowly” in Spanish – is sung by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee.

A remix of the tune featuring Justin Bieber meant that the pop star knocked himself off the top spot for most streamed song of all time, with his solo hit Sorry.
