Theres a wealth of amazing Australian film out there and pretty soon youll be able to bring home anything that ever graced our silver screens, thanks to one neat service OzFlix . Hoping to eventually make available Australias entire back catalogue of film (yeah, all 2,000 titles apparently), and aiming for half of that in the first year alone, Ozflixs goal is to make Aussie film easily accessible to both our local and international audience. Unlike other services, the movies wont be removed or replaced, and so will eventually take the form of an archive of sorts. OzFlix will feature its own review show dubbed '@TheFlix', featuring film critics Rochelle Siemienowicz and Thomas Caldwell, which will offer bundle prices on each of the movies reviewed in an episode, meaning a decent saving on some potentially decent films.

Are people in your game bracing ourselves for a possible trade war? That is on everyone's radar screen, but people are not expecting him to go in that direction. Trade war, protectionism, the 1930s and that situation, it would not be consistent with aiming for 4% growth, because he is the man with the art of the deal, the negotiator in Chief.

In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers. The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present—and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite. It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system—ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.

Exit Stage Left: Lights Go Out On Biden As He Talks Of USLeadershipIn Davos Speech It may have just been coincidence, or perhaps something more symbolic, but whatever it was, Joe Biden saw the lights go out on him as he mentioned USleadership” during his last major speech as vice president, in Davos, Switzerland. “ We are going to retain our position of leadership ,” Biden was telling the audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos, when the lights on stage began to dim. Rendered a dark silhouette, and seemingly unimpressed, the outgoing vice president carried on talking about the West’s ideas and visions of the world. “ If we dont fight for our values, no one else will ,” he said from the darkness. Moments later the lights came back on, allowing Biden to proceed with his rather dark warnings to the world. Biden used his final major speech while in office to accuse Russia and President Vladimir Putin of “ purposefullyaiming to “ collapse the liberal international order .

My 20-minute gameplay demo was all-too-limited (and it was mostly filled with cutscenes), but it left me wanting to spend the entire evening playing. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Switch) £49.99 Buy now SnipperclipsCut it out, together! Video of Snipperclips - Basketball Gameplay (Nintendo Switch) Not quite a Switch launch game, but showing up in the eShop not long after, Snipperclips is a 2D puzzler where your artistic talents come into play. You solve puzzles by cutting out characters and shapes, and you arent limited to playing solo. Four-player goodness is on the cards and it’s a lovely little party title. Splatoon 2 Video of Splatoon 2 - Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 Trailer I didnt spend much time with the original Splatoon debut on the Wii U, but its paint-shooter sequel left me very impressed. Its forced motion controls (analogue aiming will be an option come release) were a little janky, but this team-based cartoon shooter should make for some great multiplayer fun on the go.

APP said it was aiming to responsibly increase its production capacity. It said in a statement that its pulpwood suppliers were bound by its conservation policies, which include committing to "no new development on peatland since February 2013 as well as the implementation of responsible, peatland best management practice". Vast areas of peatland, which store carbon, have been drained in recent years using networks of canals to convert them into plantations for trees to produce pulp and palm oil. The drained peatlands emit greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and also create arid tracts of land that are vulnerable to going up in flames. Huge fires erupt on and around plantation land every year on Sumatra, much of it in peat. The fires in 2015 were among the worst on record and cloaked Southeast Asia in toxic haze for weeks, causing many to fall ill, schools to close and flights to be cancelled.

The DS3 makes way for the new C3 as a result. Hyundai has retained the i20 as its WRC car but now uses the latest Coupe model rather than a five-door car. Ford too will still be using its Fiesta, but once again the all-new model has been drafted in for WRC duties. Watch the Ariel Nomad go head-to-head with a Fiesta WRC car Meanwhile, Toyota has re-entered the series after an 18-year absence - it last competed officially with the Corolla WRC back in 1999. Its entry this time is the Yaris, which is probably the most dramatic-looking of all, and Toyota has drafted in four-time WRC champion Tommi Mäkinen as team principal. In WRC 2, Skoda will be aiming to defend its 2016 title with the Fabia R5, with competition from drivers in Fiestas, Citroen DS3s, Peugeot 208 T16s and Hyundai i20s. 208s, DS3s and Clios compete in WRC 3 - alongside crews using the Toyota GT86 R3 - while the Junior WRC (JWRC) class is comprised entirely of identical 230bhp DS3 R3-MAX cars.

" THR also revealed a new cast member: James Frain of Gotham and Agent Carter has signed up to play Sarek, the father of Spock, who's previously been brought to life by Mark Lenard and Ben Cross. It's unclear how big a role this will be, but the fact Sarek will appear at all gives Discovery a hefty link to Trek lore. Mr Frain joins a cast consisting of Michelle Yeoh, Anthony Rapp, Doug Jones, Chris Obi, Mary Chieffo, Shazad Latif and Sonequa Martin-Green (who plays the lead). Star Trek: Discovery release date No release date has been set for Discovery.
