Adult Swim Gave Us New Rick and Morty on a Saturday on

first_img It’s been a year and a half with no Rick and Morty. After 2016 came and went without any hint of when we’d see our favorite dimension-hopping convict and his grandson again, fans were clamoring for any information. Adult Swim had none. Or so they said. After an interminable wait, they finally gave us Rick and Morty season three. And they did it in the most Rick and Morty way possible. A surprise premiere on a Saturday night, on April Fools Day. Dicks.Adult Swim streamed the latest episode on their website until midnight EST. The episode is down now, having been replaced with, at the time of writing, Assembly Line Yeah!, where three women are making and eating pancakes. Man, pancakes sound good right now… Anyway! The new Rick and Morty has been reuploaded to YouTube, so if you missed the episode, it shouldn’t be too hard to find an upload that hasn’t been taken down yet. Just make sure you watch the post-credits scene too. Because of course there’s a post-credits scene.The episode itself was exactly what we’ve come to expect from this show. It was funny, incredibly dark and opened up a lot of new possibilities for this season to explore. It opens, of course, with Rick eating breakfast with his family at Shoney’s. He glosses over how he escaped from the Federation prison, but it soon becomes clear, he hasn’t escaped. The Shoney’s and everyone in it are just a construct built by the Federation bugs to learn how to make Rick’s portal gun.Meanwhile, on Earth, the Federation has taken control of the planet and Jerry is rising through the ranks of bureaucracy at an impressive speed. Summer is the only one that wants Rick back, thinking they owe it to him to help break him out after he turned himself in for them. Morty tries to convince her that Rick only cares about himself, inadvertently reminding her that her real brother is buried in the backyard. Summer realizes that her real Rick must still have his portal gun on him and the adventure begins.In their travels, Morty quickly catches Summer up on the Council of Ricks, particularly why they all want his Rick dead. It’s nice to see Morty be the expert for once, but we all know that won’t last long. Meanwhile, Rick has broken out of his own mind, but not before stopping in a memory of eating McDonald’s Szechuan McNugget Sauce from their 1998 Mulan promotion. Apparently, it was really good, and the company has never brought it back. Yes, this detail is important.Eventually, Summer and Morty are reunited with their true Rick in a standoff with one of the other Ricks. Our Rick tries to convince other-Rick that he doesn’t care about Summer. It works, but Morty believes him too, which appears to ruin the whole plan. That is until Morty gets tired of being taunted and shoots Rick with, as it turns out, a fake gun that Rick had given him for this very purpose. It’s enough of a distraction for Rick to shoot the other Rick and save his grandkids. You got all that?Confusion aside, this opens up some major emotional possibilities for Season Three. One of the things that make Rick and Morty so great, aside from the outlandish sci-fi and hilarious butt jokes, is its heart. The drama among the family is consistently well-written and real, which makes it even funnier when you realize that all the drama is caused by ridiculous inventions and crazy alternate universes. Morty didn’t realize that the gun he held was fake. That’s probably going to come out at some point during the new season.In the end, Rick collapses the Federation economy, forcing them to leave Earth and returns to the Smith household. Jerry can’t accept Rick back into his life and forces his wife to choose between him and her father. She chooses Rick and Jerry, for now, seems to be out of the picture. The episode takes a dark turn when Rick recreates the rant from the first episode of season one. It turns out Rick orchestrated all that, turning himself in, breaking out, everything, to get rid of Jerry for betraying him. Rick goes on to promise that this will be the darkest season yet. That he’s installed himself as the family patriarch now and no one will believe Morty if he tells the truth. Also, he wants to find those Mulan Szechuan Chicken McNuggets. That’s his series arc. If it takes nine seasons… We can only hope.I’m so happy Rick and Morty is back, and it couldn’t have returned with a better episode. I especially appreciated the brief return to Morty’s home dimension, which has been overrun by Cronenbergs. Morty even jokes that you don’t get to see what happens after Rick leaves, but there’s truth to that. Hopping between infinite dimensions is fun, but it’s really interesting to see how the world develops after the chaos. If this is where we’re starting from, I can’t wait to see where the season takes us from here. They’ve given themselves a lot of room to explore for season three. What they actually do with it, we’ll probably never guess. Oh, and they’ve also sparked a demand for McDonald’s to bring back that Szechuan sauce. After this episode, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to try it. Stay on target You Can Now Pre-Order ‘Dungeons & Dragons Vs.

Buffon is not after the Champions League anymore

first_imgItalian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, told the press that his dream of someday winning the Champions League is long gone from his targets.In the life of Gianluigi Buffon throughout over 24 years of career, winning the Champions League almost became an obsession but he never really could fulfill that life goal after so many years.Watching the goalkeeper crying after losing a final became something very common during his time at Juventus, his side was simply not fortunate enough to get that recognition and he eventually decided to stop losing sleep over it.Now that he has made the switch to PSG, the Italian goalie is mostly thinking about the best way to retire and he considered several options as he revealed this Tuesday.PSG just won a Coupe de la Ligue match vs Orleans 2-1, Buffon got in for Areola during the second half and played a fairly good match in the time he had to prove that he is still in great shape.After the game, the press wanted to ask him some questions about retirement and what he is expecting in the Champions League this season for PSG.Manager Thomas Tuchel has made the decision to split the time for both goalkeepers, something that has filled the Italian with hopes for him this season.It was going to take a special offer to keep Gianluigi Buffon in football.He got it ✍️ pic.twitter.com/N4znJu9lPu— B/R Football (@brfootball) December 18, 2018“I had decided to retire. In my mind, I thought the only option was if Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid or Barcelona had come calling,” he told RMC as quoted by Football Italia.“They were the clubs I considered crazy, a dream that wasn’t really worth thinking about seriously. So I was already organizing my post-football life.”“Yet this call arrived in May. I took two weeks to think about it, because if I make a promise and give my word, I want to do it well. I don’t like to embarrass myself.”“After a little introspection and analysis, I thought to myself, I can do another year or two and I can do it well.”“I think PSG will be my last club, because this was a gift to me from life, a reward for behaving professionally. I want to stop playing at a top level club. I never considered going to another country, as I started at a top level and want to end at a top level, that is for sure.”Neymar responds to PSG criticism with a stunning winner Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Despite all the backlash he got today at Parc des Princes, Neymar responded by scoring a stunning winner vs Strasbourg.We all knew that Neymar’s…“As soon as I met the directors, they said our objective is not to win the Champions League, because over seven years we’ve realized this is really difficult. You can’t set that as a target, but we have the ambition to improve, that is true.”“Paris Saint-Germain reached the quarter-finals, so the objective is to take a couple more steps forward and keep going that way.”“I have been trying for 24 years to win the Champions League and never won it! So I know how hard it is to have just that objective, and above all how wrong it can be to have just that as an objective,” he concluded.Tiene 40 años y sigue compitiendo en la UEFA Champions League. Qué clase de leyenda. ETERNO BUFFON. pic.twitter.com/0RbMsxezIe— Invictos (@InvictosSomos) December 13, 2018At the very start of the season for PSG, things were quite difficult as they started with a defeat at Anfield Road.However, the squad managed to get back on their feet thanks to amazing performances by several of their star players and Buffon’s experiences have also been an essential part of it.The main reason that the French giants decided to convince Buffon to sign for PSG, is because of how much he can bring to the table in terms of wisdom of all the competitions he has been a part of during his time at Juventus.‘Gigi’ didn’t really take too much time to think about the offer, but he doesn’t even like obsessing about the trophy.Sometimes when you stop craving something, it may finally come to you in a more organic manner.Maybe this is the season for Gianluigi Buffon, he has a top squad to achieve great things.46′ PSG made a halftime substitution, with @gianluigibuffon replacing @AreolaOfficiel in goal #AllezParis 🔴🔵#USOPSG pic.twitter.com/yma2KFzRpJ— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) December 18, 2018Do you think ‘Gigi’ Buffon has a big chance to win the Champions League this season?

Snapdeal to close handicrafts marketplace Shopoin amid mounting losses fund woes

first_imgFund crunch seems to be taking a toll on Snapdeal. On one hand, the e-commerce retailer is seeking to raise fresh funds at almost half of its peak valuation of $6.5 billion a year back while, on the other, the company is set to shut down Shopo.in, the online marketplace for Indian designer and handcraft products. Stock markets abuzz with rumours of Axis Bank-Kotak Mahindra Bank mergerThe Shopo platform, which Snapdeal had acquired in 2013, is shutting operations from Friday (February 10) as Snapdeal is looking aggressively at cost-cutting measures. In a blog, Shopo.in said: “The e-commerce market in India will continue its robust growth. However, we realize that it will take some more years for a broader ecosystem to develop around the C2C segment. It is tempting to go on, but it is often beneficial to pause, take stock and plan ahead for greater success. It is time for us to pause the Shopo journey for now.” Snapdeal had relaunched Shopo, the handicraft marketplace, as a zero-commission platform and in 2015, it committed to invest $100 million in the business over the next two years. However, in November 2016, Snapdeal merged the entire team of Shopo with FreeCharge and Sandeep Komaravelly, the senior vice-president of Shopo, left the company in January to join Oben General Insurance Ltd. as the chief marketing officer. Approximately 1,50,000 sellers used Shopo.in to market about four million products. Last year, while closing Exclusively.com, an online platform for premium and luxury fashion goods, Snapdeal said it successfully integrated the portal with Snapdeal.com. Snapdeal is said to be closely examining the investments it has made during the last three to four years as losses for the financial year which ended in March 2016 more than doubled to Rs 2,960 crore. Meanwhile, Snapdeal co-founder Kunal Bahl said in an interview recently that the company is looking to turn profitable in the next two years. He added that the e-commerce firm may not need to raise funds unless it decides to make an acquisition. Japan’s SoftBank had invested $627 million in Snapdeal in October 2014. Just a day ago, SoftBank said it has written off around $475 million (Rs 3,226 crore) in the value of its combined shareholding Snapdeal and cab-hailing firm Ola in nine months till December 31. Ola is also trying to raise fresh funds at a valuation of $3 billion, down from its peak valuation of $5 billion.last_img read more

Amazon Spent 107 Million on Man in the High Castle Season 2

first_imgHowever, the figures reported by Reuters don’t fully reveal how Amazon accounts for its investments in original programming. In the U.S., the $99 annual fee for Prime, which includes free shipping on millions of items, unlimited streaming of Prime Video, and other benefits. Prime subscribers are far more valuable to Amazon beyond the subscription fee, as they on average buy more products from the ecommerce site than non-Prime members.In addition, the analysis excludes Amazon’s standalone Prime Video service ($8.99 per month in the U.S.), initially launched in the U.S. two years ago and expanded worldwide in late 2016. Meanwhile, Amazon spends more on licensed programming than originals for its streaming service — the company’s total video content budget is projected to be $5 billion this year, according to JP Morgan estimates.Other details from the documents cited by Reuters: “Sneaky Pete” season 1 cost $93 million; “Goliath” season 1 cost $82 million; “Bosch” season 1 cost $47 million, and season 2 cost $53 million; and “Mozart in the Jungle” season 2 cost $37 million.The shows detailed in the Reuters article were greenlit under Roy Price, who exited as head of Amazon Studios after a sexual-harassment scandal in November. Amazon last month tapped NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke to run the studio. Amazon Studios shelled out some $107 million in production and marketing costs for season 2 of alternate-history thriller “The Man the High Castle” — working out to nearly $11 million per episode. But the pricey show was a bomb in terms of attracting new subscribers to Amazon’s Prime membership program.That’s according to the data in a report by Reuters Thursday, based on what it said were internal Amazon documents showing the cost/benefit analysis of 19 of Amazon Studios original series from 2014 to early 2017.Overall, during that time period, Amazon originals attracted more than 5 million people worldwide to Prime. In the U.S., Amazon Video drew 26 million viewers total for original and licensed content (as a year ago), per Reuters estimates based on the documents. As of September 2017, Amazon Prime had about 90 million U.S. members, according to estimates by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners. Amazon declined to comment on the Reuters report or verify the authenticity of the internal documents cited. The documents referenced purportedly show how Amazon calculates the return on its investment in originals.According to the Reuters report, Amazon tracks which TV show or movie a customers first accesses after they sign up for Prime as an indicator of its strength as a subscriber-acquisition vehicle. The company refers to that metric as the “first stream.”The data in the Amazon documents shows that it’s had wildly divergent outcomes.Amazon’s biggest flop was “Good Girls Revolt,” according to the figures cited by Reuters. The company spent $81 million on the retro drama about female journalists fighting for equality at a newsweekly mag. However, Amazon registered just 52,000 “first streams” for “Good Girls Revolt,” for a cost-per-sub number of $1,560. Amazon canceled the show less than two months after it premiered in 2016.Meanwhile, the freshman season of “The Man in the High Castle” was among the best-performing series in the documents — and was far more efficient at luring Prime members than season 2.Per the Reuters report, “Man in the High Castle” season 1 had $72 million in production and marketing costs, and drew 1.15 million Prime subs subscribers based on the “first stream” measure. That translates into an average cost of $63 per Prime subscriber acquired for the series, which is based on a Philip K. Dick novel. By contrast, Season 2 of “The Main in the High Castle” yielded $829 per Prime subscriber, more than 13 times the first run of the show.Amazon’s $78 million spending on the first season of “The Grand Tour,” the motorsports show from the trio behind BBC’s “Top Gear,” also was a win for the studio. With 1.5 million “first streams,” Amazon calculated a cost of $49 per Prime subscriber acquired for “Grand Tour” season 1.Amazon’s highest-profile show is “Transparent,” a winner of several Emmys and Golden Globe awards. Reuters did not cite production or marketing dollar figures for “Transparent,” but said the show’s season 1 had a U.S. viewership that was half the 8 million of “The Man in the High Castle” season 1. For season 3, the “Transparent” dropped to 1.3 million viewers.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

Ukraine president says almost 7000 civilians killed in war

first_imgFriends and relatives say goodbye to volunteers being sent to the eastern part of Ukraine to join the ranks of special battalion “Azov” fighting against pro-Russian separatists, in Kiev, Ukraine, Thursday, May 7, 2015. Five Ukrainian government troops battling separatist forces in the east have been killed in one of the worst single days of bloodshed since a cease-fire was declared in February, military officials said Wednesday.

The city is only a few kilometers from the front-line, so deployment of any firepower with a caliber superior to 100 mm would nominally be in violation of the cease-fire deal.

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires One of the biggest question marks still remaining for the Arizona Cardinals this offseason is how the team will address the vacancy at the quarterback position.Luckily, the Cardinals have options.Whether it be via free agency, a quarterback-friendly class in the 2018 NFL Draft or via trade, there are enough options for general manager Steve Keim and head coach Steve Wilks to test the waters before pulling the trigger on a future quarterback.Related LinksArizona Cardinals 2018 Mock Draft Tracker But with a new system under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, what type of characteristics is the organization looking for in its next gunslinger?“Each player is different,” McCoy said to reporters on Thursday. “When you look at players they all have their strengths and their weaknesses. Certain guys can move better than others, some have great arms, some have very good arms.“We all understand it is a unique situation, without any quarterbacks on the roster. But you put your system in and adjust accordingly.”McCoy added that his game plan for the Cardinals’ offense was always meant to be independent of who the quarterback was, even if it were a veteran such as Carson Palmer.Similar to McCoy, Cardinals quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich understands that each quarterback in both free agency and the draft have their own strengths.As a former NFL quarterback, Leftwich is keen on finding a quarterback that can adjust the different style of play in the NFL.“Around the college game and high school game it has changed a lot,” Leftwich said Thursday. “You have to be able to play within the pocket on this level. Some guys have mobility and the athleticism to get outside the pocket but most of the time you have to be able to play inside the pocket. That’s the way this league is going to be.” The age of the traditional pocket-passer has diminished within the lower levels and especially in the NCAA.While the NFL has seen dual-threat quarterbacks enter the league in recent years, Leftwich says the mobility factor has become an added bonus to their accuracy within the pocket.“I think it is great when you have a guy that has mobility,” he said. “But in my personal opinion, I still think a guy has to make plays in the pocket to have consistent success.”With the direction of the team taking shape, McCoy, Leftwich and the rest of the coaching staff will now start evaluating prospects for the first time as a group.“The most important thing was evaluating our team here and our current roster,” McCoy said. “College for me is the next step moving forward.“I haven’t sat down and watched every pass of everybody yet. That will all come with time.” 7 Comments   Share   center_img (AP Photos) Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more
