Get ready for more scheming from everybody’s favorite Upper East Siders! Gossip Girl has been off the air for five years, but it remains a hot commodity around the world, and an industry source tells Radar that plans for a movie reboot are being actively discussed at Warner Bros. “They had great success with the Sex and the City films, and it makes sense to capitalize on this show in the same way,” says the insider. “ Leighton Meester is apparently on board, and Sebastian Stan has said that he, Chace Crawford and Jessica Szohr are all hoping it’ll happen.” The person to sell on the idea is Blake Lively , the source adds. “A couple of years ago she would never have agreed, but now that she’s established an identity apart from the show, she seems more open to it. They’re all feeling a bit nostalgic — and the paycheck wouldnt hurt.” XOXO!

A journey he apparently made unencumbered by a temporary exclusion order. The.

m. ET on USA Network. News, Potential Spoilers Matt Hardy may end up reviving the "broken" gimmick in WWE, but it won't be right away. Since leaving Impact Wrestling, the Hardy brothers have been trying to secure the rights to the version of their characters they played in the past few years. That process apparently hit a speed bump. Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reported: "T he US Patent and Trademark Office is forcing the wrestler to make changes to his filing." Monday's Raw won't be without Emma much longer. A shoulder injury in May spoiled her delayed return. Fans seemingly won't have to wait nearly as long to see her back in the ring this time around. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc), Emma is expected to be cleared to compete in June. And while the women's division will grow deeper when that happens, the cruiserweights will remain one veteran short.

Should we develop slivers of out-of-the-way country parks for public housing? Apparently, its a sin just to ask this question. Not only can we not touch those parks, which account for 41 per cent of Hong Kongs landmass, we cannot even raise the issue. Independent lawmaker Eddie Chu Hoi-dick has just led a group of eco-warriors against any such an idea. The former director of the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department has spoken out against it on radio. The...

3, no. 3, 310-322. Interestingly, various seismic events on our Moon (moonquakes) are apparently correlated with, or triggered by, some phenomenon or phenomena outside of our Solar System; see Cliff Frohlich and Yosio Nakamura, 2006, “Possible extra-Solar-System cause for certain lunar seismic events”, Icarus , vol. 185, 2128. If this is true, it suggests the possibility that in at least some cases phenomena on our Sun and earthquake activity on Earth (as well as moonquakes) may be correlated with each other because both the Sun and Earth (or Earth-Moon system) are responding to common phenomena outside of our Solar System, or perhaps the Sun is responding to something from outside the Solar System and then causing effects on Earth (and presumably on other planets and bodies in our Solar System as well). Such studies are still in their infancy.

Most incredibly, the crowd kept pushing the line of soldiers back. With each few feet of retreat, the crowd cheered and chanted, taunting the soldiers, sticking their fingers, fists and flags in their faces. The police remained calm. I tried to engage a few in conversation. “This must be really difficult for you,” I asked. No reply. Israeli police recruit keeps his cool, stays silent. Then, the inevitable: the loud pop of a tear gas canister, a cloud of acrid, white smoke drifting through the air, and everyone flew, gasping for breath, covering their eyes. Others stayed put. If the cops could, so would they. One older woman sat down on the pavement, her harms crossed. Camera people rushed over to capture her sitting there. Pop goes a tear gas round. But the protest was about to become less up close and personal. “Skunk truck!” an Israeli activist murmured, interrupting our interview, pointing to a large white truck driving up the road from Halamish settlement, where it’s based and apparently refuels.

" Apparently as big a fan of the film as we here at Open Culture, Puschak has also made another video essay focusing on the masterpiece's aural dimension, "Listening to Blade Runner ." As everyone interested in its making knows, Blade Runner wouldn't quite have been Blade Runner without its music by Vangelis, a composer who used synthesizers (especially the legendary Yahama CS80 ) in a way seldom if ever heard at that time. But as Puschak points out, "the score isn't laid on top of the visuals. It's not a guide or an addition" but "baked into the DNA of the movie itself." Every piece of audio in Blade Runner , "including score, sound design, and dialogue," is tightly integrated: "each blurs into the others." Puschak shows us how, as in the scene above, the film keeps the audience unaware of "where the music ends and the world begins," by matching the qualities of the music to the qualities of the space and light, incorporating "faint computer-y noises," and applying still-new digital reverberation technology Vangelis uses on both the music and the dialogue to "fold separate audio sources into one master track," creating a "cohesive acoustic environment" that emphasizes different dimensions of sound at different times in different ways — in service, of course, to different elements of the story.

Similarly, Tadao Ando's 1976 Azuma House is bluff and aggressive to the street, windowless and bunker-like, with concrete fetishist interiors totally unimplied by the street facade. Even apparently playful work like Yamashita's 1974 Face House has a dark underside, a farcical response to these blunt concrete blocks that turns their motifs into comedy. Coming across something like Aida's early 1980s Toy Block House is a relief by comparison, a house-system making reference to the country's phenomenally successful toy industry, evoked here without angst. Many of the houses are responding in some way to a hyperactive urban landscape of adverts and signs, a saturated world that comes into these sealed houses of the 70s and 80s only obliquely. In one room, a series of films succeed each other, showing mass-produced modernity becoming increasingly irrational.

In 2001-03, half of patients stopped taking HIV medications 23.9 months after starting them, but by 2004-06 the median of persistence reached 35.4 months. In the final study period, 2007-10, more than half the patients were still taking the medications by the study's end, so the median had not even been reached. Statistical analysis that adjusted for possible confounding factors confirmed that the last group of patients had a reduced risk of discontinuing their medications compared to patients at the beginning of the decade. A few other studies have shown a similar trend, but they have been based on data from advanced, individual clinics, Wilson says. This study is the first to show progress among a broad-based, low-income population. Youn and Wilson agree that while results showing strong increases in treatment persistence over a decade were encouraging, they acknowledged that it's still a major problem that so many people apparently discontinue HIV medications after a few years.

Is it possible for a blockbuster trade to be both a major win and a slowly developing defeat? From looking at the Chris Sale trade, apparently yes. It's been six months since the Boston Red Sox acquired Sale from the Chicago White Sox for a package headlined by two top prospects: phenom infielder Yoan Moncada and flame-throwing right-hander Michael Kopech . As Sale prepares to return to US Cellular Field for the first time on Tuesday, the Red Sox can rest easy knowing that he hasn't done anything to make the trade look bad. Through 10 starts, the stick-like left-hander has a 2.34 ERA and MLB -best marks in strikeouts (101) and WHIP (0.81). The only disappointment so far is that his streak of consecutive starts with at least 10 strikeouts ended at eight last week. There's been talk around Boston that Sale is like the next coming of Pedro Martinez.

As good as the LG G6 is theres one area where its found lacking relative to its rivals. Were talking, of course, about its Snapdragon 821 chipset, which was good for 2016 but a bit dated by 2017, when the G6 launched. Theres evidence that next years LG G7 will really have the power to compete though. According to Aju Business Daily , the LG G7 will use the Snapdragon 845 the chip which is likely to be the successor to the Snapdragon 835 found inside the likes of the HTC U11 and some versions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 . The site claims that LG and Qualcomm (the makers of the chip) began collaborating early in May. So far little is known about the Snapdragon 845, but apparently it will be 30% more powerful than the Snapdragon 835, so the LG G7 could be one of the most powerful phones around if it really does use the Snapdragon 845.

Moreover, Qatar has apparently come to realize that it should be leaning toward Iran in order to extricate itself from Saudi domination and establish a balance of power in the Persian Gulf. Now, with unprecedentedly growing tension between Qatar and other Persian Gulf countries, especially Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the WikiLeaks scenario is being repeated for Arabs as Arab states continue to blow the whistle on one another. The Sky News in the UAE called Qatar the major sponsor of the ISIS terrorist group. Also, Qatar’s Al-Jazeera news network spoke of secret UAE-run prisons in Yemen where inmates are being tortured.
