Dan Cohen AUTHOR The commonwealth of Kentucky is seeking two economics and analytics consultants to study the cybersecurity, and aerospace, aviation and defense industries in the state. Each of the studies — made possible through assistance from DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment — will determine the economic impact of the subject industries and provide recommendations for continued growth at the local, regional and state levels. Additionally, the consultants will make recommendations concerning industry sector opportunities, workforce development, education and enabling legislation, among other requirements. The aerospace, aviation and defense study requires an interactive, web-based product with mobile-friendly attributes that visualizes the results of each area of interest. It will provide associated supply chain maps, as well as educational centers, and allow for rapid retrieval and download of relevant data, charts, maps and graphs. The commonwealth released the two RFPs April 8 on the state procurement website. Bid proposals are due May 6 (cybersecurity) and May 12 (aerospace, aviation and defense). For questions on RFP bid submissions, please contact Holly Callaghan, (502) 564-4932, Holly.Callaghan@ky.gov.
20 Photos Some people are still trying to predict when the trailer will arrive, despite our previous failures for the Super Bowl and Oscars. Film and TV editor Emmy Griffiths crunched the numbers and thinks we’ll get the trailer before the end of this week. “I have no means been obsessively checking old correlations between GoT trailers and premiere dates to reach this conclusion,” she jokes. Game of Thrones HBO 0 Cookies are coming. pic.twitter.com/aTPjU4l4gS— Oreo Cookie (@Oreo) February 23, 2019 Enlarge ImageCan we get a trailer already? Helen Sloane/HBO We could hear it, like dragon wings pounding the air. It was time. First we hoped the Super Bowl would bring the trailer. Then Oscars night came and went. Now it’s Feb. 26 and there’s still no real trailer for the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Fans of ice and fire aren’t taking this well.Game of Thrones returns for season 8 on April 14, which is why fans are getting antsy. It’s so close. One Twitter use compared the number of trailers we get for Marvel products with those we get for Game of Thrones. There’s a bit of a disparity. The official Game of Thrones account responded with “House Oreo.” Now that sounds like a house worth belonging to.HBO could get away with never releasing a trailer for the final season. Nobody is going to boycott the show because they didn’t get enough advance footage of angry dragons, frozen dead people and sword fights. So pour yourself a Bud Light and twist open an Oreo while you wait. HBO must be sending the trailer out by raven and it got lost somewhere over Westeros. Twitter user Gotmemesworld meme-ified our plight by highlighting the meager teases we’ve gotten so far. It also reminds us of the collective sigh of exacerbation we all spewed when HBO and Bud Light dropped a weird Super Bowl commercial featuring a beer knight and no real season 8 information.

Deputy General of Police D Roopa has demanded a probe by the Anti-Corruption Bureau against retired Director General of Police H N Sathyanarayana Rao on November 29, following the latter’s Rs 20 crore defamation suit against her on Monday.The suit is with regard to a report submitted by Roopa in July to then DGP Rao alleging that the DGP is involved in giving preferential treatment to AIADMK leader VK Sasikala and her relative Ilavarasi at Bengaluru’s Parappana Agrahara Central Prison.Sasikala and two of her relatives are serving a four-year jail term for corruption since February.Roopa’s allegations against Rao Roopa as DIG (prisons) submitted the detailed report against the DGP claiming the latter’s involvement in irregularities in the jail premises. The report was leaked to the media.A video also surfaced in the media in August matched Roopa’s allegations. It reportedly showed Sasikala and her relative walking around in the open inside the Bengaluru central jail.Roopa was quoted by PTI as saying, “There was a talk that Rs 2 crore had exchanged hands to give preferential treatment for Sasikala and there were bribery allegations against him (Rao) also.”A special probe was ordered by the Karnataka government into Roopa’s allegations. Roopa was also transferred by the state government after she and Rao’s public spat. IPS officer D RoopaTwitterRao’s Rs 20 crore defamation notice to RoopaRao slapped Roopa with a defamation suit of Rs 20 crore claiming that the junior officer’s allegations are “absolutely false, baseless and wild and legal action will be taken against her.”Rao’s lawyer Puttige Ramesh told PTI that the defamation case was filed on November 27.Ramesh said that Roopa has framed the DGP under false allegations to gain publicity for a film based on herself. “We came to know that a movie on Roopa is in the making. In order to gain publicity for the movie, she prepared the defamatory report on my client (Satyanarayana Rao).”The lawyer alleged that Roopa had violated norms and leaked her findings to the media before disclosing it to the jail authorities.Ramesh pointed out that, “The report was submitted on July 11 this year, but a day later the report was published in the media. It is very clear that the officer leaked the information to the media.”What now?After demanding a ACB probe against Rao, Roopa denied receiving any defamation notice. She said, “I have not received any defamation notice. If I receive it, I will answer in court. As it is, there is no defamation made out, that is the first thing.”Speaking to IBTimes India on Wednesday, Roopa said, “In the complaint I had filed earlier against DGP Rao, I said he was also involved in corruption which was not considered by Vinay Kumar. Now the ACB probe will perform a detailed investigation and should file corruption charges against him (Rao) under Section 13 (1) (c) of Indian Penal Code.”The officer stands by her earlier statement on irregularities in Bangalore jail and stressed that, “The report submitted by Vinay Kumar has confirmed that irregularities did take place in the jail and special privileges were given to select prisoners.”Roopa added, “It is now important to find out why privileges were given and that can be probed by the ACB. I stand by my statements and insist that the ACB probe the matter.” Close IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPlayMute0:00/0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE0:00?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.Beginning of dialog window.
