China defence minister justifies Tiananmen crackdown

Photo: AFPThe 1989 crackdown on protesters in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square was the correct policy, China’s defence minister said Sunday.”That incident was a political turbulence and the central government took measures to stop the turbulence which is a correct policy,” General Wei Fenghe told a regional security forum in Singapore.Speaking to fellow defence ministers, top military officers and academics from all over the world, Wei questioned why people still say that China “did not handle the incident properly”.”The 30 years have proven that China has undergone major changes,” he said, adding that because of the government’s action “China has enjoyed stability and development”.Beijing was the epicentre of student-led protests 30 years ago, with hundreds or possibly more than 1,000 killed by soldiers at the square on 4 June 1989.last_img

Santa Clarita Diet Explores the Human Side of Cannibalistic Zombies

first_img What to Stream on Netflix This Weekend11 Other Old-School Nick Shows That Should Get Netflix Movies Stay on target Netflix’s new zombie series premiered this weekend, showing us all how funny a zombie outbreak can be. And unlike The Walking Dead, this show does it intentionally. Santa Clarita Diet centers on a normal, boring suburban family. Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel (Timothy Olyphant) are two married real estate agents raising a teenage daughter in Santa Clarita, Calif. We don’t get much sense of their life beyond that before things start to get weird.While showing off a house, Sheila throws up in the master bedroom. A lot. She also coughs up a ball of… meat that looks like an internal organ. The next morning, she finds that she has significantly lowered inhibitions, along with an insatiable craving for raw meat. The family does some digging and, long story short, she’s dead. Thanks to the nerdy kid next door, they figure out that she’s a zombie. She’s controlled completely by her id, impulsively going after whatever she desires.If the plot sounds at all familiar to you, that may be because it’s almost the same premise as iZombie, the DC comic turned CW crime procedural. Both series feature zombies that don’t lose their personalities after becoming undead. They are pretty much the same people they always were, but now they don’t feel pain and crave human flesh. (Although in iZombie, they just eat the brain, and are then able to access memories of the person they eat. In Santa Clarita Diet, it’s all just meat.)Sheila Hammond (Drew Barrymore) enjoys a raw hamburger. (Photo via Netflix)The main difference is that Netflix’s series is a comedy. Sheila has no problem with eating people, though she does try to make sure they deserve it. Her first kill is a new employee at the real estate firm she and Joel work at. He’s a real dirtbag who tries to steal their clients, tries to sleep with Sheila and won’t take no for an answer when she doesn’t want to. After biting off his fingers and disemboweling him in their backyard, she can’t eat anything but human flesh. Barrymore plays this role so well. Her charming personality and excellent sense of comedic timing add an extra layer of absurdity to the violence on display.Olyphant is hilarious as the reluctant, but loving husband. A lot of the comedy in this show comes from the vastly different reactions Joel and Sheila have to their current predicament. Sheila takes a pragmatic, go-with-the-flow attitude toward her new diet. Joel on the other hand slowly unravels throughout the entire first season. He tries so hard to be upbeat and positive, only growing more manic with each episode. His character’s journey is a little flat, but Olyphant does some great things with what he’s given. His rationalizations combined with Sheila’s impulsive cannibalism lead to many genuine laugh-out-loud moments throughout the season. The show gets a lot of mileage out of having the couple bicker over things like how to properly murder someone, store the body and cover up their tracks. But there’s always a sense of love underneath the arguing that keeps the humor from getting too mean.My favorite character in the show, though, is probably their daughter, Abby (Liv Hewson). She has the most interesting character arc in the first season, from learning to accept her mom’s new diet, to building a friendship/possible relationship with the nerdy kid next door. Hewson’s wonderfully sarcastic portrayal gives us a well-rounded character who’s just trying to make sense of a really messed up situation.Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo (Photo via Netflix)Santa Clarita Diet is an easily bingeable show. Each episode comes in at just under half an hour, telling one engaging, continuous story. You’ll easily get through the entire first season in about half a day, making it feel like a five-hour movie more than a TV show. I mean that in a good way. Over the entire running time, the dark humor never gets old, and the show constantly finds ways to subvert your expectations and surprise you. For example, about halfway through the season, Sheila and Joel try and fail to kill someone, inadvertently creating another zombie. In any other show, that character would become a formidable threat to be defeated by the end of the season. I don’t want to spoil specifics, but that’s not what happens. The direction they take the character instead is completely unexpected and hilarious.What makes Santa Clarita Diet work is an enormous amount of heart. This is a family comedy at its core. It’s a very weird family, but aside from the murder and cannibalism, they deal with fairly relatable problems. Abby accepts what her mom has become and only wishes her parents trusted her enough not to lie to her. Sheila and Joel fight, argue and drive each other crazy, but are reminded over the course of the show how much they really love each other. That normal sitcom sweetness, combined with the gross-out violence makes for a cute, funny zombie tale unlike anything else.Obviously, the show isn’t perfect. It gets to the zombie stuff very quickly in the first episode, so we don’t see much of what their life was like before. We’re told it’s boring and unfulfilling, but the series doesn’t have time to show much of that beyond your standard suburban life cliches. Also, the jokes about how crazy it is that realtors are killing people do get old pretty quick. We get it Joel; murder isn’t something you’d normally expect from a real estate agent. Find a new schtick. Other than that, the rest of the jokes land well and don’t stop being funny.Joel (Timothy Olyphant) doesn’t handle change well. (Photo via Netflix)The stakes are low for most of the season and only pick up for the last few episodes, but that’s not a problem. This is a sitcom first and foremost. It doesn’t need high-stakes drama. It’s fine, and probably preferable that the show takes its time and focuses on the family coming to terms with their new life. It is a little frustrating that the show ends on a cliffhanger, but that seems to be the norm for a lot of Netflix comedies. It’s just a shame that after speeding through the series in five hours, I have to wait a year or more to see what happens next. But I guess it’s not such a bad thing if one of my beefs with Santa Clarita Diet is that I wish there were more of it.last_img read more

Khadi comes of age

first_imgUsing Narendra Modi’s Maan ki Baat talk as an inspiration, where he urged the Indian populace to use Khadi more, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission(KVIC) organised an exclusive exhibition/sale at Khadi Gramodyog Bhawan on Thursday, in order to launch exclusive skin friendly Khadi T-shirts.The exhibition which is a part of further marketing interventions, also witnessed an exclusive exhibition/sale of products from Jammu and Kashmir entrepreneurs of Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP) and was inaugurated by the Chief Guest, Kalraj Mishra, Union Minister for Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME). Congratulating the entrepreneurs of Jammu and Kashmir for their beautiful products, he additionally appreciated the efforts of KVIC for making the Khadi youth-centric and market friendly.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’He also stated that The Khadi Darshan programmes organized in universities and colleges changed the trend, with the youth, wearing Khadi more than ever. He further added that without the development of SME’s the resolution of  ‘Make In India’ would not be possible as well as stating that the PMEGP programmes gives an opportunity to the entrepreneurs across the country to show their entrepreneurial skill in order to set up the enterprise with very little capital and in a short span of time, which may see tremendous growth in future. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixAlso gracing the occasion was Giriraj Singh, Minister of State, MSME, who talked about the improvement of Khadi in leaps and bounds so much so that it stands a great chance at surviving in the competitive market which provides employment to five crore people. He also said that in order to make Khadi more fashionable, the NIFT graduates and various fashion designers have played an integral part which is resulting in the youth gravitating towards the final product. Dr Anup K Pujari, Secretary to the Government of India, Ministry of MSME, A K Jha, CEO and Commissioner, KVIC as well as K S Rao, Deputy CEO, KVIC were also present at the event.AK Jha in his address divulged that in order to promote Khadi among the youth and also make it more market friendly, KVIC has initiated a number of market interventions through its flagship outlet Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan which has also planned to have regular exhibition/sale involving entrepreneurs and institutions from different states on a rotation basis. He also emphasised on bringing in designer garments and products suiting customer tastes and preferences with a special focus on the youth segments which he feels would bring in more sustainability and viability to the khadi institutions and micro enterprises working for the influx of employment in the country.last_img read more

Czechs turn to homemade booze after sales ban

first_imgFor Czechs, slivovitz is more than just a drink. It’s a Czech tradition to make it when a daughter is born _ and to only drink that at her wedding.One customer this week, waiting for his spirit, described how he had slivovitz made when his son was born _ but vowed not to partake until he became a grandfather.“It’s one of the most important things in life,” said Vlcek.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Sponsored Stories Initially, Czechs thought these small brewing outlets _ “palenice” in Czech _ were included in a nationwide ban that was recently imposed on spirits exceeding 20 percent in alcohol content. But authorities made it clear that wasn’t the case, citing the strict guidelines these outlets adhere to as a matter of pride and that what they produce is for personal consumption not re-sale.What might seem a risky leap of faith came as a huge relief to Czechs who swear by their slivovitz.“I was getting afraid that they would even ban this. That would’ve been a tragedy, it would cause a rebellion in the villages,” said 69-year-old Oldrich Chmela, one of a dozen people watching all day this week inside Stanislava Chalupova’s one-room distillery in eastern Czech Republic.“It’s where `alchemy’ happens,” he said.At least 23 people have died in just over a week from a very different, sinister form of alchemy.Authorities say a thriving black market in the country’s northeastern region is to blame for lacing vodka and rum with methanol to stretch volume and increase profit margins. More than two dozen people have been arrested and police have seized thousands of liters of tainted and suspicious alcohol. Exports from the country have been banned, and Poles and Slovaks were among the victims having drunk the bootleg booze that had crossed borders.Authorities now say an estimated 20 percent of spirits available in bars and restaurants has been manufactured on the black market, often containing illegal substances and carrying fake labels. It’s sent shock waves through a nation of alcohol lovers where beer is king, but 65 million liters of spirits are consumed a year.Overnight last week, all spirits above 20 percent were cleared from supermarket shelves, bars and restaurants _ and hidden away in boxes until further notice. The government is reported to be considering lifting the ban once a new certificate is introduced for all spirits to show their origin. But there’s no real end in sight yet for the unpopular ban, which even the president has lambasted.Jiri Vlcek, 70, swears by home-brewed slivovitz. He has a shot every morning and was waiting this week to wheel away 35 liters. “I have enough for the whole year,” he rejoiced. “It’s absolutely safe. This isn’t the trash you get at the stores.”He was among those waiting all day for Chalupova to complete the process of blending, mixing and alcohol grading. Most choose 50 percent strength. Associated PressBREZNICE, Czech Republic (AP) – It’s a cherished countryside tradition dating back to the 13th century. And, in a hard-drinking nation reeling from a deadly wave of alcohol poisoning, it’s now the only source of legal liquor.Early in the morning, locals bring fermented homegrown fruit to makeshift distilleries in kitchens, backyards and garages; by sunset they walk away with vats of slivovitz, a potent plum brandy that many swear by. Finally, the 79-year-old village brewing legend sipped a small sample of crystal-clear liquid from a green metal barrel and proclaimed it “delicious!”“There’s nothing to worry about, it’s absolutely safe,” she said of her home-distilled firewater, cursing the people who put methanol in cheap spirits to increase profit margins.Vaclav Sitler, chairman of a union of distillers, says up to 10 million liters of liquors with an alcohol content of 50 percent are made every year in 487 small home distilleries all across the country.That means about a liter per capita.The owners of these locales would seem to be in a position to cash in, but a drought combined with sudden frost in May seriously damaged the plum harvest and so supply is low.They charge about 200 koruna (10 dollars) per liter distilled and are expecting a spike in customers in coming weeks. Due to the lack of plums that proper slivovitz is made of, many are bringing other fruits such as apples and apricots.Chalupova, who has been distilling for almost four decades, said she expects to make only about a third of the slivovitz she produced last year due to the poor weather.“People are happy for every single liter,” she said.

Thousand lose jobs as Joyce tinkers with QF

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J The Qantas Group has launched the first phase of a new five year plan that aims to reverse its financial losses and see a return to profits “in the short term”.Some thousands of jobs are to be affected by the new strategy unveiled today according to chief executive Alan Joyce, in the areas of management, pilots, cabin crew and engineering.Mr Joyce said he expects the majority of redundancies to be voluntary and will focus on minimising the number of compulsory redundancies. “We will become more productive, more efficient, more innovative,” the company’s head explained.Announced earlier today, the job losses come as the carrier focuses on modernising its international operations through South America and UK route adjustments and the launch of two new Asia-based carriers.Mr Joyce explained that the changes are “fundamental” to reversing “big financial losses” suffered by the carrier as well as its drop in the market share.As part of the first phase launched today, Qantas unveiled its new Jetstar Japan low-cost carrier as well announced plans to release a new premium airline to be based in Asia.“At the end of this process, we expect that we will be established on a competitive global platform, with high growth potential across all markets,” he said.“Instead of being restricted to an Australian-based international airline, Qantas international will be participating in regional Asian opportunities, and in the world beyond.”The carrier’s South American operations are also being “tinkered”, axing its services to Buenos Aires and launching new flights into Chile’s capital, Santiago. Commencing early next year, the new direct services between Sydney and Santiago are an enhancement of the carrier’s relationship with oneworld partner LAN and will operate three times weekly with plans to consider adding daily frequency.Mr Joyce described the new service as an “ideal gateway” for Aussies to travel other South American countries including Argentina, Peru and Colombia.Boosting its relationship with another major oneworld partner, the carrier’s head said it would also increase its Join Services Agreement (JSA) with British Airways to strengthen their Singapore hub and provide better connections between Australia and Heathrow.The move will see the carrier construct a new premium lounge at Changi International Airport for passengers flying from Melbourne and Sydney to London via Singapore.Also from early 2012, the Australian flag carrier will fly Australia to Bangkok and Australia to Hong Kong services, while its Bangkok to London and Hong Kong to London services will be removed and picked up by British Airways.A statement from the carrier read that the restructured services would help the carrier “improve profitability”.“Singapore will become the focal point of the JSA, with daily Qantas A380 services from Melbourne and Sydney and onward to London, increased British Airways capacity and a new premium lounge,” Mr Joyce explained. “The new approach is a smarter use of both airlines’ resources that will enhance our competitive position in Asia and in the Australia- Europe market.”last_img read more
