James Chester is weighing up his West Brom future less than four months after moving to the Hawthorns.The 26-year-old has started just one Premier League match for the Baggies since arriving in a £8m deal from Hull City.The Welshman says his lack of game time is harming his international career ahead of Euro 2016, and has suggested he could be looking for a way out of West Brom in January.“To be playing for Wales I have to start playing for my club because it’s impossible to play at this level and not be playing week in, week out,” Chester said, after starting for his country in their 3-2 defeat to Holland on Friday.“I know myself I need to be playing at my club to give me the best chance of going to France and playing when we get there.“I don’t think it’s good enough to be playing for Wales when I’m not playing for West Brom.“It’s nearly impossible to not play every week and then expect to be 100 per cent to stop players of (Arjen) Robben and (Wesley) Sneijder’s class – and that’s the level we will play in France in every game.“(Wales manager) Chris Coleman has been brilliant to me and that’s nice to hear, so it’s up to me to go back to West Brom and play. But I’m finding it difficult.”Former Manchester United trainee Chester was promoted into the Premier League with Hull and had two seasons in the top-flight before joining West Brom last summer in the wake of the Tigers’ relegation.He was part of a three-man central defence at Hull and also with Wales, playing a key role as Coleman’s side qualified for the European Championship next summer, but his rare Albion appearances under Tony Pulis have come at right-back.“When I signed (Pulis) said he knew I could play at centre-back but he wanted to use me at full-back,” Chester said.“I don’t really have a problem with that as long as I’m playing in the Premier League, which is where I want to be.“I think the disappointing part for me is I played the first game of the season and I think I showed enough, with hard work and playing there regularly, that is something I could become quite good at.“But to only give me one opportunity there I find it quite difficult to understand.”Chester, the most expensive defender in Albion’s history, revealed he spoke to Pulis in October to enquire what he had to do to get back in the first team at the Hawthorns.“He said he understood it was a new club and a new position and we had some work to do,” Chester said.“But up to the part of speaking to him I hadn’t done much work regarding playing right-back.“I asked him how I would get back if not doing the things he said to me.“I’m trying to stay professional and keep myself right for when I get the chance, because when I get there I feel I’m good enough to stay in the team.”Asked if he would look elsewhere in the January transfer window, Chester replied: “I’m 12 games into a four-year contract, but I’m not one who likes to sit and watch.“I want to play and I thought I was coming to West Brom to play in the Premier League.“Hindsight’s a wonderful thing and you see how Hull are doing at the start of the season, and I had other options which makes the situation a little more difficult.” 1

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dry weather today should come with less cloud cover. Yesterday clouds and pesky moisture managed to get in over parts of the state, even though we were dominated by high pressure. Today we are on the backside of the high and should see better south winds moving clouds away. No new precipitation is expected, and we should keep the dry weather in for most of the state for Saturday as well. Moisture overnight tonight into tomorrow morning is shifting farther north, and should stay in Ontario and back into Michigan, but we do see minor precipitation trying to move into the northern third of Ohio overnight tomorrow night into Sunday morning. Moisture totals will be limited to a few hundredths to perhaps a tenth from US 30 northward. The rest of the state sees nothing. Dry weather holds through Monday and early Tuesday morning.Our next system brings scattered showers for Tuesday. That should bring a few hundredths to .5” to about 60% of the state. The heaviest rains (near that half inch level) will likely show up in NW Ohio. We are going to keep a second push of moisture from midnight Wednesday night through Thursday. That wave brings .25”-.75” to about 75% of the state. That front pushes through from NW to southeast. All action is done by Friday, except down in farm southern parts of the state, near the Ohio river. There, we can see showers continue through midday and early afternoon Friday. The map at right shows combined precipitation from the two waves next week.The weekend looks cooler, and we may have trouble breaking the clouds up. We do not see a lot of new precipitation threats for Saturday and Sunday right now, but we also may be looking at a few hit and miss spits and sprinkles. The cold air really starts to drag in as the weekend finishes and we start the second full week of October.The extended forecast still has a very strong front for the 9th-11th. Data suggests that the heaviest rains and the strongest part of the system will pass by to our west and north, but this far out, we would not jump on that solution yet. This system is very strong and could have some 1-2.5” rain potential with it, if we hit the strongest part. We follow that up with another slower moving, but less heavy system for the 13th, which could bring up to half an inch of rain, slowly lifting in from the SW. Temps likely cool off quickly behind the system on the 10th and 11th.
2. Label Your Sequences With IntentI’ve been asked before to go back and make small revisions to projects several months old that I had never touched before. On several of those, the sequences were named things like:Rough v1Rough_v1 CopyRough_v1 Copy CopyFinal_v2Untitled Sequence Copy 02 v3Edit v2 FinalRough Edit v2 Final RevisedYou get the picture. I actually started working on the wrong sequence because of this, which wasted time there, and even more time after I figured that out while I was trying to find the correct one! If you saw all of these in a project, would you have any clue where to start?Save the next editor a huge headache by having a consistent naming convention for your sequences, and stick to it. Here’s how I version:Title the sequence with a name that means something instead of just “edit” or “rough”, for example: “2014 New Products Showcase”.Numbers increment with client revisionsLetters are for internal revisionsExample: The rough edit would be “2014 New Products Showcase v1”. If I went through two more refinements that I wanted to keep separate before we sent it to the client, they would be called “2014 New Products Showcase v1a” and “2014 New Products Showcase v1b”. When the client sent back revisions and feedback, the next version would be called “2014 New Products Showcase v2”. Further internal revisions would be “2014 New Products Showcase v2a”, etc.Naming is a huge help in identifying the most current version. Want to make it even easier for the next editor and not only keep them from cursing you, but have them sing your praises? Put all old versions in an “Archive” bin, and have only the most current version visible by default. They’ll love you, I promise.3. Keep Your Sequences CleanI don’t think I’ll ever understand why some editor’s timelines seem to use tracks at random and have over 15 of them, but if you have to edit that way, go for it. Just do us other editors a favor: before you walk away from the project make a new version (a “v2a” or whatever, if you follow my suggestions above) and collapse the tracks to something that makes sense. Having one track is great. Want to keep b-roll and your storyline separate? Great. Use two tracks. Not ten. If you use multiple tracks, be consistent with what you put on them, so an editor picking up the project quickly see the pattern and identify what’s where. My usual pattern when I use multiple tracks is:V5: Animated video transitionsV4: Titles and graphicsV3: Adjustment Layers for color if needed.V2: B-RollV1: Primary StorylineIf I can combine any of those in a way that makes sense and without conflict (ex: putting titles, graphics, and transitions on one track), then I do. If you were handed a project like that, I don’t think it’d take very long for you to find what you needed.Also, if prepping a project for another editor to take over, delete the extra junk at the end of the sequence. Sometimes we miss it and the project ends up exporting with 15 extra minutes of black. Most of the time it’s just annoying because it throws off our “scale timeline to window” shortcut (Shift+Z or whatever you use).If you use that as scratch for your selects, that’s great, but do one of two things before passing it off: Either version the sequence so you have it in a previous version so it’s out of the next guy’s way, or cut and paste it into a selects or scratch sequence. The latter is a usually a better option, because the sequence would be clearly labeled if the next editor wants to find good clips to pull from or see some of your other ideas.One last little side note for those of you that end up taking over a project another editor started for you: If he/she took the time to keep things neat for you, you should definitely respect that effort by keeping things organized in the way that editor prefers.I hope this has been helpful, and hopefully it makes your working relationship with other editors a little less stressed. Let me know if you guys think of any other suggestions (share in the comments below)! When working in a collaborative environment, following these tips will keep fellow editors and other post-production specialists from cursing your name when they have to work on your project!As editors, we often pass projects off to other post-production specialists and even other editors. At my work, for example, I might start a project because I have time, but a higher priority project that fits my skill set better might come along, so I’l pass the project I was working on to another editor at my company. We also often have one person do the rough edit, and another person take the project to polish it up.Here are a few tips for preparing your project so that the transition from one editor to the next is as smooth as possible.1. Keep Your Project OrganizedI’ve talked before about the need to keep a project organized, and even passed along some suggestions on how to do so (be sure to check out this post on a bin organization structure for your video editing projects).So, here’s the big question: If you had to hand a project off to another editor mid-project (family emergency, vacation, sick day, called in on a larger project, etc.), could they immediately find all of the pieces they need without having to scour and search every bin and file? Do you put all of the footage in a logical place and make it easy to find B-Roll, identify the most current version of the edit, and determine what graphics have been created and which ones still need designing?If the answer is “no” you’re wasting their time by making things harder than it should be. Good project organization significantly reduces the amount of time spent looking for things (or spent using the wrong things). From a self-benefit perspective, it also keeps them from having to track you down and ask you a bunch of questions, so you save time as well. Keeping things neat and tidy will keep other editors from hating having to pick up a project you started.
The Government will be increasing provisions to the Student Loan Bureau (SLB) in the new financial year.Education Minister, Hon. Rev. Ronald Thwaites, said that this will enable the organisation to provide more loan support to students, who wish to pursue tertiary education.“I believe that I can say that in the upcoming financial year, increased provision will be made so that those who have come to the level of tertiary education can be assisted by more ample availability of student loans and financing than has happened in the past. To me, this is a signal achievement,” he stated.The Education Minister was addressing the graduation ceremony for 67 teachers held on Sunday (January 13) at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St. James.The SLB funds approximately 30 per cent of the island’s tertiary students. Minister Thwaites informed the audience that the Government had to find $2.7 billion this year to cover the obligations of the bureau.He said that despite the economic challenges, the Government continues to give priority to education, with the allocation to the sector commanding a large portion of the budget.“Jamaica spends 6.5 per cent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and 14 per cent of its budget on education, a higher proportion than any other country in the Caribbean region, except Cuba,…after paying the debts that are due, education gets pride of place,” he pointed out.The Minister argued that given the significant investment, it is important that the education resources are utilised in the most efficient way possible to get the best returns from the sector.“We have to look radically at the way we spend our education dollar and to determine the best way to ensure that we are getting the highest returns,” he stated.He noted, for example, that the Government spends upwards of $2.5 billion each year “to keep teachers out of the classroom” as they pursue advanced studies and that such spending could no longer be afforded.“Teachers, who seek to be upgraded for services in the leadership and in the particular specialties of the education system, will have to do so virtually and by way of the holidays and other mechanisms, in order to preserve your places in the classrooms, because we cannot pay for the locum tenens (substitute teachers) anymore,” Rev. Thwaites stated.The 67 teachers, from the Sam Sharpe Teachers’ and Mico University colleges had successfully completed the Master of Science in Educational Leadership and Master of Science in Reading and Language Arts, through the Central Connecticut State University in the United States.

Security Internet Hacking Privacy Share your voice Biometric data has also been stolen in data breaches. In the breach on the US Office of Personnel Management in 2015, which government officials said they attributed to Chinese espionage, hackers stole 5.6 million sets of fingerprints belonging to federal employees. That number climbed from OPM’s initial announcement that hackers stole 1.1 million fingerprints. Post a comment Marriott breach: What to do when hackers steal your passport number Getty Images If your passport number gets stolen by hackers, California Attorney General Anthony Becerra wants you to hear about it. He and state assembly member Marc Levine unveiled a bill Thursday that would require companies to inform customers when passport numbers and biometric data get caught up in a data breach.”Knowledge is power, and all Californians deserve the power to take action if their passport numbers or biometric data have been accessed without authorization,” Becerra said in a press release Thursday.The bill comes in response to the breach of a Marriott-owned reservation system, made public in December, which compromised the information of about 383 million guests at the company’s Starwood hotel chain. Hackers stole more than five million unencrypted passport numbers, as well as more than 20 million encrypted passport numbers. Marriott did notify customers if their passport numbers were stolen, Becerra noted, but it wasn’t required by law.Passport numbers are valuable to potential identity thieves because they provide one more point of data about potential victims. However, criminals would have to use the numbers in expensive and sophisticated forged passports to travel internationally with the information. Passports numbers can be changed by reporting a passport lost or stolen; the replacement passport will have a new number. So they stole your passport number… Tags 0
Spider-Man: Far From Home spoilers sneakin’ up on you like Peter Parker in his Stealth Suit. Jay Maidment/Sony Pictures Spider-Man: Far From Home brings Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a close with a joyous teen adventure. It also returns to the grand tradition of postcredits scenes after Avengers: Endgame offered only an audio Easter egg of Tony Stark forging his armor in the first Iron Man.Far From Home’s first postcredits scene is essential viewing, and the second is fun but will make you rethink the entire movie.If you haven’t seen Far From Home yet, be warned that you’re about to get caught in a web of spoilers.Scene 1: Mysterio’s revenge and a glorious returnSpider-Man (Tom Holland) swings a flustered MJ (Zendaya) through the Manhattan skyline and drops her off at 8th Avenue and 33rd Street, where a massive screen on the side of Madison Square Garden shows a report from TheDailyBugle.net.A doctored video makes it look like Spidey killed Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) during the climactic battle in London — the illusionist’s recorded testimony says Spidey is a villain from another universe who was controlling the drones wreaking havoc on the UK capital. How to watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe film in the right order Spider-Man: Far From Home director talks postcredit scene… As for where he got the video, it was probably from Mysterio’s assistant William Ginter Riva (Peter Billingsley), who escaped with a hard drive after Spidey foiled his boss’ plan in London. We saw earlier in the movie that Riva worked for Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) way back in the first Iron Man, so he’s had two villain employers.It’s also hard to know if Mysterio is really dead — he could’ve used his special-effects wizardry to fake that too.Director Jon Watts told CNET about revealing Peter’s identity and bringing Jameson back.”We knew it had to be on TV for the whole world to see. And we were like what, what news outlet would that be that would publish something like this?” he said.”It felt like it would be the Daily Bugle and if it’s the Daily Bugle, it’s gotta be J Jonah Jameson. And once we got to that point, there’s no question in anyone’s mind, it’s gotta be J.K. Simmons.”Watts noted that the actor’s approach to the character was pretty similar to the one he took for the Raimi movies.”But now he’s more recognizable as a real-world person than he was in those films. So I don’t know; it’s kind of interesting to look at how the world has changed around him,” he said in our interview.There’s no buzz cut, no cigar, no suspenders. But for the most part he’s still the spirit of J Jonah Jameson — I wondered like, was he a newspaper man? What’s happened? There are so many questions. Nothing is as it seems with Nick Fury and Maria Hill. Sony Pictures Scene 2: Nick Fury’s vacationWe discover that this movie’s SHIELD Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) weren’t the Fury and Hill we know and love.Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and his wife Soren (Sharon Blynn), a pair of shapeshifting Skrulls, pretended to be Fury and Hill. You might remember this couple being reunited during Captain Marvel, which takes place years prior to Far From Home in the MCU timeline.They were working for the real Fury, who ordered them to get the EDITH glasses to Peter. Talos apparently fell for Beck’s ruse too.The real Fury was chilling on a beach … that turns out to be a virtual reality (VR) simulation on a Skrull vessel somewhere in outer space. Perhaps he needed a vacation after being restored to life in Avengers: Endgame. We don’t see the real Hill. Hopefully she’s enjoying a little leisure time too.Turns out Talos (seen in Captain Marvel) plays a major role in Far From Home. Chuck Zlotnick/Marvel Studios What it meansFury and Hill were actually disguised Skrulls for the whole movie, echoing the Secret Invasion comic storyline where Skrulls secretly replaced humans. This is like a benign version of that sinister takeover, but it could foreshadow a future MCU storyline.There are a few hints about that the SHIELD agents aren’t all they seem during the movie too. Fury has an unusual reaction when Peter mentions Captain Marvel.”Don’t invoke her name,” he says.This reverential tone would be out of character for Fury, but is absolutely in character for Talos — she reunited him with his family back in the ’90s. Performances by Jackson and Smulders are a little flat during the movie too; this revelation makes their acting even more impressive.Maybe Talos was responsible for that Fury poster goof too.It does raise the question of what the Skrulls have been doing since the events of Captain Marvel, when they left Earth to search for a habitable planet where their race could live. Maybe even more people have been replaced by the shapeshifters. Earlier in the movie, Talos-Fury also makes a passing mention of “Kree sleeper cells” — in reference to the race that wiped out the Skrull homeworld. He and Soren could be on Earth to hunt the genocidal aliens.Watts wouldn’t reveal too much about any grander meaning behind this scene.”I don’t want to say anything about where we’re going next but, I mean, having seen Captain Marvel and now that the world knows about Fury and the Skrulls and all of that, it’s just another thing to draw from in this crazy, complicated, rich universe that’s the MCU,” he said in our interview. So Far From Home How to watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe film in the right order 2:17 Then Daily Bugle host J. Jonah Jameson (J. K. Simmons) appears on screen to hail Mysterio as “the greatest superhero of all time” and prepares us for more.”But that’s not all, folks. Here’s the real blockbuster — brace yourselves, you might wanna sit down,” he says.Mysterio’s final testimony reveals to the world Peter Parker’s secret identity as Spider-Man, leaving Spidey and MJ understandably shocked. null Far From Home review: A perfect Avengers: Endgame epilogue Spider-Man: Far From Home is the future of the MCU Far From Home poster goof unleashes Samuel L. Jackson’s Fury Share your voice TV and Movies Comics What it meansSpidey’s been outed to the world and framed for murder, meaning his entire life is turned upside down as we head into Phase 4. It’s a dark, stunning contrast to the end of Iron Man, where Tony Stark revealed his own superhero identity to the press and a nice reference to the comics’ Civil War storyline (which saw Peter outing himself at Tony’s urging).The general public’s also been fed Mysterio’s lies about the multiverse — we’ll see how they react to that.J. Jonah Jameson, as he was seen in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. His MCU counterpart doesn’t have the buzzcut. Sony Pictures Even more importantly, this scene marks the glorious return of Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. He played the cigar-chomping Daily Bugle boss in all three Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, but those aren’t part of the MCU and this isn’t the same character — note the lack of a buzzcut.From this glimpse, the MCU’s Jameson appears quite different to the Raimi-verse’s traditional angry newspaperman. Here, he’s more of an Alex Jones-type conspiracy theorist (mirroring his role as an angry podcaster in last year’s PS4 game) — one who was willing to paint a bullseye on a teenage boy based on a choppy video. 26 Photos Now playing: Watch this: Tags Originally published July 1.Update, July 8: Adds comments from Jon Watts.
