Is There Room for Consolidation in the Dry Bulk Industry

first_imgzoom Consolidation through mergers and acquisitions has been a very prominent trend in the container shipping industry, and more recently the tanker sector. Liner majors such as Maersk Line, Hapag-Lloyd and CMA CGM have already availed of the opportunity to bolster their fleets and reap the benefits.Nevertheless, there are opposite opinions when it comes to consolidation in the dry bulk shipping industry.“At least five fleet consolidations will take place within the next twelve months,” Robert Bugbee, President of Scorpio Bulkers, said while speaking in a panel discussion on the dry bulk shipping industry organized by CapitalLink.At least three of these are expected to take place by June, Bugbee added, without specifying details of the companies that might turn to such a move.As explained, the consolidation is ready to happen in the dry bulk as well, especially taking into account the fact that providers of capital have expressed their preference of giving capital to larger companies rather than smaller market players. As a result, a number of companies in the market are considering joining forces and have launched discussions with counterparts and investment bankers.On the other hand, Polys Hajioannou, Chairman and CEO of Safe Bulkers, doesn’t believe there will be much consolidation in the dry bulk sector.“Each company has is own ideas and policies, and I don’t see many companies out there that could come together and make a meaningful contribution through consolidation,” Hajioannou said.The example of Fredriksen Group acquiring Quintana last year was an exception and had a good timing, according to Hajioannou. However, the deal is not likely to usher in a trend in the industry, he explains.The forecasts are being made as the dry bulk sector emerges from the historically low point in the shipping cycle driven by higher demand for dry bulk cargo originating from China and Brazil. The fundamentals on the supply side have also reached a good point, especially due to the yard availability constraints that are expected to keep ordering activity at bay.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Departing prosecutor at UN tribunal laments Serbias failure to arrest suspects

10 December 2007Serbia continues to do nothing to arrest the two most notorious suspects from the 1990s Balkan wars, the outgoing Prosecutor of the United Nations war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia said today, declaring that her previous optimism that Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadžic might soon be in custody “has waned considerably.” Carla Del Ponte, who steps down from her post later this month, told the Security Council that “it is a stain on the International Tribunal’s work that two individuals indicted for genocide and responsible for the worst crimes committed in Europe since the Second World War are still fugitives.”Mr. Mladic, who led the Bosnian Serb military forces, faces 15 charges, including two of genocide, seven of crimes against humanity and six of violating the rules or customs of war. Mr. Karadžic, a former political leader of the Bosnian Serbs, faces two counts of genocide, five counts of crimes against humanity, three counts of violating the laws or customs of war and one count of grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions.Mr. Karadžic and Mr. Mladic are two of only four men out of 161 initial indictees who are still at large, but under the completion strategy established with the Council, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has said it will try to finish all trials at the first instance by the end of next year.Ms. Del Ponte told reporters at UN Headquarters in New York today that it was vital that Council members not “close the door” on the Tribunal until Mr. Mladic and Mr. Karadžic are brought to justice.In response to questions, she noted that she was pursuing the arrest of Mr. Mladic ahead of that of Mr. Karadžic.“Because I know where Mladic is, and I know that Serbia can give me Mladic. But Karadžic – I don’t know in which country of the region is hiding. I know he is in the region, but I could not tell you if it is in a monastery in Montenegro, or in Republika Srpska, or in Serbia, or in an apartment in Serbia. I don’t know because I’m focusing now on Mladic, because Mladic is in the immediate reach of Belgrade.”Before today’s Council briefing, Ms. Del Ponte gave this month’s President, Ambassador Marcello Spatafora of Italy, a letter from “the women of Srebrenica,” the town that was the scene of a notorious massacre in July 1995 in which more than 7,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed, in which they urged the 15-member body to keep the Tribunal operating until the fugitives are caught.Earlier, she told the Council that she held high hopes earlier this year of a breakthrough in Serbia and that the remaining fugitives would be arrested and transferred to the ICTY’s custody in The Hague.However, “despite the Serbian authorities’ declared commitment to fully cooperate with my Office and improved procedures, there is no clear road map, no clear plan in the search for fugitives, no serious leads and no signs that serious efforts have been taken to arrest the fugitives.”She urged the European Union to make the arrest of Mr. Mladic a condition of Serbia’s process of accession to the continental bloc.“EU conditionality has in recent years been the most effective tool to obtain the transfer of ICTY fugitives. I am convinced that the arrest of the remaining four fugitives will only be achieved if this policy is upheld.”The Prosecutor, who is being succeeded by Serge Brammertz, the current head of the International Independent Investigation Commission (IIIC), concluded that although there was “some unfinished business” for Mr. Brammertz, the Tribunal had still “achieved a great deal. It has accomplished most of its goals and has paved a wide and solid road for international justice… And yet, I will leave this institution with a feeling of disappointment.”Serbia’s representative, Pavle Jervremovic, said the four remaining fugitives would be located and apprehended in the near future, and that authorities in his country had recently taken steps to improve their cooperation with the Tribunal on issues ranging from witness access to production of documents. The Government had also promised rewards to anyone providing information leading to the arrest of the suspects, he noted.Meanwhile, the Council also heard briefings from ICTY President Judge Fausto Pocar and from Judge Dennis Byron and Hassan Bubacar Jallow, the President and Prosecutor respectively of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), which was set up to deal with the worst crimes committed during the 1994 genocide in that country.The ICTR faces a similar completion strategy to the ICTY, with all trials at first instances expected to be wrapped up by the end of next year and all work, including appeals, by 2010.In its most recent report to the Council, the Tribunal – which is based in Arusha, Tanzania – says that “significant progress has been made” towards fulfilling the mandate, and that it is largely on schedule to meet the completion strategy. read more

Crown Prosecution Services Hillsborough criminal charges statement in full

first_imgMy assessment of the case is not in any sense a finding of, or implication of, any guilt or criminal conduct. It is not a finding of fact, which can only be made by a court, but rather an assessment of what it might be possible to prove to a court, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.There is a further IPCC file into the conduct of the West Midlands Police but additional investigative work was required in respect of this. Additionally, just this week, the IPCC has referred two further suspects which are unconnected to the matters sent to us in January. These files are subject to ongoing consideration by the CPS and we will announce our decisions in due course.Suspects against whom the full code test is not metOperation Resolve suspectsI carefully considered the actions of six other police officers of various ranks in respect of their conduct in planning for the match and/or on the day.There was a failure to define roles and task responsibility to those acting in command and this has made it extremely difficult to demonstrate matters which fell within the specific performance or discharge of duties owed by individual officers and there was a lack of specific instructions as to how any duty should be carried out. Graham Henry Mackrell, who was Sheffield Wednesday Football Club’s company secretary and safety officer at the time, is charged with two offences of contravening a term of condition of a safety certificate contrary to the Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975 and one offence of failing to take reasonable care for the health and safety of other persons who may have been affected by his acts or omissions at work under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. These offences relate to alleged failures to carry out his duties as required. Other witnesses commented on him later attending the gym and taking control of the situation.In all of the circumstances, and particularly having reflected on the nature of the duty owed under s.7 HSWA and the relevant considerations, I decided that there is insufficient evidence capable of establishing that this suspect failed to show reasonable care for the health and safety of other persons affected by his acts or omissions at work on the 15 April 1989.Consequently, there can be no prosecution for health and safety breaches arising from the conduct of the two most senior officers on the day. The most junior officer was the second station officer (the first, more senior, station officer has since died).This junior officer’s failings on the day contributed to a delayed response from SYMAS, including a delay in the notification of the hospitals and request of a mobile medical team, the dispatch of the major incident vehicle, and a delay in asserting command and control of the incident.There were other (unconnected) opportunities for a major incident to be declared; namely by the police, and by Control in receipt of the messages requesting ambulances. The failings were certainly not this suspect’s alone. Peter Metcalf, who was the solicitor acting for the South Yorkshire Police during the Taylor Inquiry and the first inquests, is charged with doing acts with intent to pervert the course of public justice relating to material changes made to witness statements.Mr Metcalf, an experienced solicitor, was instructed by Municipal Mutual Insurance to represent the interests of the force at the Taylor Inquiry and in any civil litigation that might result from the Hillsborough Disaster.He reviewed the accounts provided by the officers and made suggestions for alterations, deletions and amendments which we allege were directly relevant to the Salmon letter issued by the Taylor Inquiry and for which there appears to be no justification.Former Chief Superintendent Donald Denton and former Detective Chief Inspector Alan Foster are similarly charged for their involvement in the same matter. It is alleged that Donald Denton oversaw the process of amending the statements and in doing so, he did acts that had a tendency to pervert the course of public justice and we will say that Alan Foster was central to the process of changing the statements and took action to do so.Former Chief Constable Norman Bettison is charged with four offences of misconduct in public office relating to telling alleged lies about his involvement in the aftermath of Hillsborough and the culpability of fans. Given his role as a senior police officer, we will ask the jury to find that this was misconduct of such a degree as to amount to an abuse of the public’s trust in the office holder. He was later concerned in the arrangements to deal with the deceased and to stand down the ambulance service resources but there is insufficient evidence that in his actions or conduct, he failed to show reasonable care under the HSWA so as to amount to an offence.The second senior employee failed to declare a major incident at a stage when he had sufficient information to do so. However the extent of his individual failure should be considered against the context:the police had not declared a major incident to SYMAS,the SYMAS liaison officers at the ground had not declared a major incident, andthe receiver of the message at control was not prompted to declare one.It seems that this employee felt that he had insufficient information and so made the decision to attend the ground himself. His decision to go to the ground was described by the expert as the correct one, and as a decisive action.Once at the ground, he became the most senior ambulance officer and should have assumed the role of “Incident Officer” according to the SYMAS Major Incident Plan.The evidence and RACAL tapes make clear that ambulances and SYP were still seeking a SYMAS officer some time after his arrival. However, the expert’s evidence was that his actions were commensurate with a senior officer trying to establish control and command. Following thorough investigations and careful review of the evidence in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors, I have decided that there is sufficient evidence to charge six individuals with criminal offences.I have found that there is sufficient evidence to charge former Chief Superintendent David Duckenfield, who was the Match Commander on the day of the disaster, with the manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 men, women and children.We will allege that David Duckenfield’s failures to discharge his personal responsibility were extraordinarily bad and contributed substantially to the deaths of each of those 96 people who so tragically and unnecessarily lost their lives.The offence clearly sets out the basis of those allegations. We are unable to charge the manslaughter of Anthony Bland, the 96th casualty, as he died almost four years later. The law as it applied then provided that no person could be guilty of homicide where the death occurred more than a year and a day later than the date when the injuries were caused.In order to prosecute this matter, the CPS will need to successfully apply to remove the stay imposed by a senior judge (now retired) at the end of the 1999 private prosecution when David Duckenfield was prosecuted for two counts of manslaughter by gross negligence. We will be applying to a High Court Judge to lift the stay and order that the case can proceed on a voluntary bill of indictment. I have decided not to prosecute the company which was the legal entity of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club at the time as it only now exists on paper.There are no directors or others listed who form the company and therefore no-one who can give instructions to answer any criminal charge or enter a plea. Even if the company was to be prosecuted and found guilty in these circumstances, there could be no penalty as it does not have any assets with which to pay a fine.For legal reasons, we cannot prosecute the South Yorkshire Metropolitan Ambulance Service and there is insufficient evidence of a criminal offence against the two most senior employees referred for consideration.There is, however, sufficient evidence of a health and safety breach against one junior ambulance employee, although it is “non causative” which means that it cannot be directly connected to any particular death.As we cannot prosecute the ambulance service or the more senior employees and the offence carries a maximum penalty of a fine, I have decided that it is not in the public interest to prosecute the junior officer after this significant period of time when the likely outcome would be a nominal penalty. The decisions have also this morning been relayed to other interested parties, including the defendants and other suspects who were referred to the CPS by Operation Resolve and the Independent Police Complaints Commission. Here is the Crown Prosecution Service’s statement in full regarding the Hillsborough charging decisions:The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has today (28 June 2017) announced its charging decisions in relation to the Hillsborough disaster and its aftermath.Sue Hemming, the CPS Head of Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division, made the announcement to families of the deceased at a private meeting in Warrington this morning.She said: “Following our careful review of the evidence, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors, I have decided that there is sufficient evidence to charge six individuals with criminal offences.”Criminal proceedings have now commenced and the defendants have a right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.” Finally, we considered the conduct of the Football Association and one of its officers. That organisation’s conduct was assessed against the Safety of Sports Grounds Act and the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. While I considered that it was a ‘responsible person’ for the purposes of SSGA, there was insufficient evidence to establish that any breach of the safety certificate could be placed within the responsibility of that organisation, and thereby raise a burden on it as a defendant to establish a due diligence.Equally, for the purposes of HSWA, the evidence did not establish that, in the conduct of its undertaking, the FA contributed to a material risk to safety. As a result, in each instance, there was not a realistic prospect of a conviction against them. In the particular circumstances, it also followed that there was insufficient evidence against any employee of that organisation under either Act.IPCC suspectsWe considered the actions of two other suspects referred for consideration in connection with the statement changing.In respect of these former officers who were on the team that was tasked with making amendments, it is not possible to show to the criminal standard that they were aware of the overall system being implemented and in the absence of evidence to show that they were aware of the nature, extent and impact of the relevant amendment process, it cannot be proved that they had an intention to pervert the course of public justice. If the evidence is insufficient to found an inference of criminal intent, it follows that their conduct cannot give rise to charges of misconduct in public office. Even if the company were to be found guilty in those circumstances, there could be no penalty as it does not have any assets with which to pay a fine and no-one else liable to pay it. As a consequence, whilst I have concluded that there is sufficient evidence for a health and safety offence, it is not in the public interest to prosecute now.We considered the actions of the South Yorkshire Metropolitan Ambulance Service, which has been criticised for its failure to respond adequately to the unfolding disaster.It is clear that SYMAS was a service supplied by the Trent Regional Health Authority (TRHA) rather than a legal entity itself. The TRHA ceased to exist when its responsibilities were transferred. However, criminal liability was not transferred to the successor organisations, so there is no body, corporate or incorporate, which can now be prosecuted even if liability could be proven.We have considered the actions of three ambulance service employees. We examined the records of the TRHA and neither of the more senior officers (or by definition the junior officer) is capable of amounting to a ‘senior manager’ under section 37 of the HSWA.We therefore considered whether any of the three might have committed any other HSWA offence and in doing so considered expert evidence in respect of the SYMAS response. The expert is critical of the overall response but is unable to quantify the effect that any failings had on the victims. Any identifiable breach therefore, would be ‘non-causative’. Show more The expert summarises his view as follows:”The actions of the SYMAS staff that were present at the match from the outset, and those that attended as a result of being sent to the disaster must be considered in the light that this was an event that had developed very quickly, resulting in very high numbers of dead and dying patients in a very short space of time.”This was an event that occurred right in front of the SYMAS staff and the police, and they did not have the luxury of even a minute’s thinking time.”This disaster would have proved extremely challenging for even the most experienced Ambulance Officers, Ambulance Staff and Ambulance Control Staff to have dealt with in a structured manner.”He says that whilst there were failures and consequences flowing from the actions of the ambulance staff “it may be that these failures that in my opinion arose from inexperience both of planning for, and dealing, with Major Incidents rather than from deliberate omission or commission of acts”.One of the senior officers assumed no role in dealing directly with the casualties at the stadium. He was at home then consequently went to the SYMAS control room at 1550 after becoming aware of the disaster; this was after the initial casualty transport phase had come to an end. The defendants, other than David Duckenfield, will appear at Warrington Magistrates’ Court on 9 August 2017.May I remind all concerned that criminal proceedings have now commenced and of the defendants’ right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.In relation to six other police officers who were referred as suspects in respect of their conduct in planning for the match or on the day, there is insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction.I have concluded that whilst there is evidence of failure to meet the standards of leadership rightly expected of their respective ranks, there were no acts or omissions capable of amounting to gross negligence manslaughter or “an abuse of the public’s trust” to the required criminal standard for an offence of misconduct in public office.I also considered administration of justice offences against some of these officers. However, the evidence did not establish either a tendency to pervert the course of public justice, nor an intention to pervert the course of public justice to the required criminal standard. Neither did the material considered establish sufficient evidence, as required for the purposes of perjury, that statements were made on oath which the author knew to be false or did not believe to be true.center_img I have concluded that whilst there is evidence of failure to meet the standards of leadership rightly expected of their respective ranks, there were no acts or omissions capable of amounting to gross negligence manslaughter or ‘an abuse of the public’s trust’ to the required criminal standard for an offence of misconduct in public office. Prior to 1998, no police force or individual police officer was subject to the provisions of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HSWA).As indicated, we also considered administration of justice offences against some of these officers.However, the evidence did not establish either a tendency to pervert the course of public justice, nor an intention to pervert the course of public justice to the required criminal standard. Neither did the material considered establish sufficient evidence, as required for the purposes of perjury, that statements were made on oath which the author knew to be false or did not believe to be true.Sheffield Wednesday PLC (company number 00062478) is the legal entity, existing only on paper, which was Sheffield Wednesday Football Club in 1989.Sheffield Wednesday Football Club as it exists today is a different company and as it is not a successor organisation, is not criminally liable for any offences that might have been committed. The 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster Operation Resolve took action to preserve the paper company at the outset of the investigation so that a full investigation could take place. There are no longer any directors or other individuals who form the company and therefore no-one who could represent it in the dock, give instructions to answer any criminal charge or enter a plea. The full statement that Sue Hemming provided to those in attendance at this morning’s meeting is below:Summary of decisionsThe Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has considered two substantial files of evidence from Operation Resolve (OR) and the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) in respect of 15 and six suspects respectively.The suspects referred to the CPS included individuals and organisations. The offences referred for consideration include gross negligence manslaughter, misconduct in public office, doing acts tending and intending to pervert the course of justice, health and safety at work and safety of sports ground offences.Operation Resolve investigated the events of the 15 April 1989 when 96 Liverpool fans were tragically killed as the result of overcrowding in the central pens at the Leppings Lane end of the Hillsborough football stadium.The IPCC investigated the aftermath. In particular they looked at the conduct of South Yorkshire Police (SYP) and carried out an investigation into whether anyone was responsible for a “cover up” of the true events and if witness statements were altered in such a way to amount to a criminal offence. The CPS team and senior counsel have been advising in respect of these matters from an early stage. Sir Norman Bettison, left, and David Duckenfield  Hillsborough Sir Norman Bettison, left, and David Duckenfield Credit:Peter Byrne/PA/Dave Thompson/Getty However, he was in the position of being the “eyes and ears” of SYMAS in the ground and the first and best positioned SYMAS employee to be able to make a proper assessment. The first few minutes were critical and a better response might have made a difference to survival.I was satisfied, therefore, that there is sufficient evidence that this suspect failed to take reasonable care for the safety of those who may be affected by his acts and omissions at work as a Station Officer, namely the supporters in the pens, by his failure to look in the pens and failure to declare a major incident.At the same time, though, in applying the public interest stage of the Code Test, I took account of the following:This suspect did not create the circumstances of the crisis he faced; and his reaction to it, while entirely inadequate, cannot be proven to have directly caused any deaths;The offence was neither flagrant on his part, nor did it involve the showing of a reckless disregard for health and safety. Rather, it may very well have arisen from a reaction of shock on the part of this emergency responder confronted by an unfolding tragedy of enormous scale out with his experience. In the words of the expert, this suspect was ‘not well enough prepared by his employer’ in relation to this match;Moreover, there were a significant number of failings on the part of other individuals (police officers and other SYMAS staff) which also contributed to delaying treatment and effective organisation of treatment of casualties.Therefore, given that (i) we are unable to prosecute SYMAS or the more senior officers for the overall poor response; (ii) the application of Health and Safety Executive policy would be unlikely to result in a prosecution of an individual in these circumstances; (iii) the offence was non-causative; (iv) a considerable amount of time has passed; (v) the offence only carries a fine; and that (vi) a nominal penalty would be the likely outcome, I have found that the factors against prosecuting this suspect outweigh those in favour. In those circumstances, it is not in the public interest to prosecute that individual alone. Sue Hemming, Head of Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division While I considered that it was a “responsible person” for the purposes of Safety of Sports Grounds Act, there was insufficient evidence to establish that any breach of the safety certificate could be placed within the responsibility of that organisation, and thereby raise a burden on it as a defendant to establish a due diligence.Equally, for the purposes of Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, the evidence did not establish that, in the conduct of its undertaking, the FA contributed to a material risk to safety. As a result, in each instance, there was not a realistic prospect of a conviction against them. In the particular circumstances, it also followed that there was insufficient evidence against any employee of that organisation under either Act.In respect of the other suspects referred for consideration of criminal offences arising from the IPCC investigation into the statement changing, there is insufficient evidence to prove an intention to pervert the course of public justice.Note – It is not the function of the CPS to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence, but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges for the criminal court to consider. Finally, in relation to Operation Resolve, the Football Association (FA) was also considered in relation to the day’s events. Its conduct was assessed against the Safety of Sports Grounds Act and the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. Charges have been authorised against:David Duckenfield, who was the Match Commander for South Yorkshire Police on the day of the disasterGraham Henry Mackrell, who was Sheffield Wednesday Football Club’s company secretary and safety officer at the time of the disaster in 1989Peter Metcalf, the solicitor acting for the South Yorkshire Police during the Taylor Inquiry and the first inquests Former Chief Superintendent Donald Denton of South Yorkshire PoliceFormer Detective Chief Inspector Alan Foster of South Yorkshire PoliceNorman Bettison, a former officer with South Yorkshire Police and subsequently Chief Constable of Merseyside and West Yorkshire Police Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Air Forces Steven Zander Named as Finalist for Prestigious Civil Servant Award

first_imgSteven Zander, who leads the Air Force Community Partnership Program, will be honored today on Capitol Hill as one of 30 finalists for the 2015 Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals.“The Service to America Medal finalists showcase the good that our public servants do each and every day behind-the-scenes on behalf of the American public,” Max Stier, president and CEO of Partnership for Public Service, told Federal News Radio. “They epitomize the true spirit and value of public service,” Stier said.Zander was nominated in the management excellence category for leading a team to develop innovative partnerships between Air Force bases and their neighboring communities to save money and strengthen the local base and community support in a wide range of service areas, including libraries, golf courses, snow removal, operation of a water/wastewater treatment plant, and construction/maintenance of ball fields, according to a press release.“Steven has helped the Air Force and our bases think differently,” said Miranda Ballentine, assistant secretary for installations, environment and energy. “It used to be that bases were mini cities in terms of all the municipal services they self-provided. Steven leads a team that goes to the bases and has a well-defined process to brainstorm ways to best utilize base and local community resources and expertise,” Ballentine said.The Air Force Community Partnership Program is the service’s effort to implement the new authority allowing installations to enter into intergovernmental support agreements with local governments to provide, receive or share support services for most municipal functions.An example of an initiative under development calls for Goldsboro, N.C., to invest almost $8 million to build fields for a shared sports complex on 63 acres at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. The effort will bring benefits to airmen and families residing in local communities and on base, as well as provide almost $900,000 in potential facility benefits to the base, according to the release. The city will realize new tax revenue from sporting event attendees.“We set the framework that devised a creative way to train and send teams to installations and their surrounding communities,” Zander said. “The greatest results are achieved when installation and community leaders embrace the concept of partnering and use the Air Force’s well-structured process which provides support as needed to help them find ways to get to yes,” he said.The eight winners of the Service to America Medals, popularly termed “Sammies,” will be announced in October at a gala in Washington.

Game of Thrones season 8 Are we headed for a major letdown

first_img7:17 Now playing: Watch this: At this point idk if I’m excited about the new episode of #gameofthrones or just excited to be one week closer to the end— Alexandra Able (@AlexandraAble) May 13, 2019 I don’t really understand your beef with Tyrion and Jaime hanging out or Tormund getting crunk. Episode 4 did have flaws, but its job was to build suspense around Daenerys’ fork-in-the-road moral moment, and raise the serious question about who should sit on the throne.(The answer is obviously Sansa, if only because of Sophie Turner’s excellent Instagram game.) JR: Sophie Turner’s Instagram game will outlive this show and rightly so. She has truly hop, hop, hopped into our hearts. Look, the Battle of Winterfell was much better than the absolute garbage they served up in episode 4 and you’re probably right — expectations were (are!) high. Still, the key events in this episode reminded me of your fan fiction theory suggesting Jon Snow was yelling “GO!” to an invisible Arya Stark in episode 3. These half-hearted, happening-off-screen events have become more common, predominantly in seasons 7 and 8. Remember when we watched Ned Stark slowly read through a tome about the history of the houses in Westeros? What a time. It’s like there’s a second show happening off-screen right now. It seems like poor writing. To explain character motivations and desires we have to make do with what we’re given or just make believe. That was never the Thrones way, was it? What’s happened to Game of Thrones? We’ve decided to grab two of the finest Maesters in the Citadel to hash it out. In one corner, self-confessed Game of Thrones stan Daniel Van Boom, and in the other, disappointed, mad king Jackson Ryan.Jackson Ryan: Dan, how did we get here? What are people mad about?Daniel Van Boom: Game of Thrones is basically the new Star Wars. Every time anything happens in Star Wars, there’s a large segment of the fanbase that’s furious. They take it so seriously. And that’s cool. Being passionate about something that’s deeply affected your life is fair, but at the same time a lot of the criticism reeks of misguided expectations. The last few episodes of Game of Thrones have definitely had flaws, but they’re still high-quality TV. JR: Hold your dragons, mate. No one brought Jedis into this discussion. Let’s stay focused here. The internet gets mad at a lot of things, and the last episode of Game of Thrones provoked the online beast. First, let’s talk about not petting Ghost. Tell me you have some justification for this that isn’t “CGI is expensive.” It is unjustifiable. They could have crowdfunded a better ending for the direwolf! It’s nonsense.Ghost going unloved does speak to some of the greater issues at play here. The internet is mad because, within the space of four episodes, Game of Thrones has gone from a show where no character, plotline or prophecy seems set in stone and every action is carefully laid out to the audience, to one where everything seems wildly obvious and all the characters’ motivations make zero sense except to serve one purpose: getting to the finish line. ‘The Last of the Starks’ is second lowest rated episode of #GameofThrones ever.No matter the scores of the final two episodes, this season will be the lowest-rated in series history: https://t.co/EJIWxzCw4o pic.twitter.com/iO6XfV9Oz5— Rotten Tomatoes (@RottenTomatoes) May 9, 2019 The 38 most gut-wrenching Game of Thrones deaths, ranked 0 DVB: The show isn’t over, amigo. Seems only fair to see what the end looks like before we dissect the means of getting there.And I don’t think anything is wildly obvious. What is obvious? I don’t know who’ll sit on the Iron Throne. Plus, season 1 of the show was good-but-standard fantasy until episode 9, when Ned Stark died and everything got crazy. Then it seemed like Game of Thrones’ true hero was Rob Stark and, just when that seemed to be the direction, everything changed. So a perception of predictability is the precondition for Game of Thrones’ best, most surprising moments. Episode 4 definitely had problems. Jon not patting Ghost was dumb, even if you can blame it on technical difficulties.I think most of the flaws in season 8 come down to David Benioff and D. B. Weiss cramming everything into six episodes instead of 10. This was worse in season 7, where characters could apparently warp the space-time continuum. But it still feels like there are shortcuts being taken, and opportunities missed, to accommodate for the shorter season. game-of-thrones-season-8-episode-4-hound-arya-horseback-hsSolid moment, but what could have been? Helen Sloan/HBO A good example: Arya and The Hound are probably hanging out right now, riding together to King’s Landing, and I bet we’re not going to see any of it. The show’s pace now, where every second counts and needs to push us to the finish line, just doesn’t allow for the type of relationship we saw between them in season 4.I don’t really understand why they’re doing it — probably because they have less source material here than for previous seasons. But Game of Thrones is such a good show, and its development so expert, that I’m going to assume there’s a reason they’re cramming more events into fewer episodes, that the alternative would have been worse.Most of what’s disappointed me about season 8 is what hasn’t happened and what we haven’t seen. But what we have seen has been mostly good, often great.

The internet is going to send death threats to Benioff and Weiss no matter what they do. What I really think is happening right now is people are coming down from the Battle of Winterfell. For whatever complaints people have about it — that it didn’t give sufficient weight to the White Walker threat, that parts of it didn’t make sense — it was certainly an emotional peak. After that, The Last of the Starks feels relatively pallid. It’s worth remembering that most people remember moments, not episodes, and moments are the payoff to build up. I think people understand that episode 4 was always going to build up the next epic payoff. But at this stage of the game, so close to the finish line, it deflated them. In retrospect I think people will see that the episode was a return to form of sorts, since Game of Thrones is mostly about politicking and the tempestuous interpersonal relationships between different characters. 49 Photos JR: It’s strange because every second does count. When you sit down and agonize over recent episodes frame by frame, you feel like a lot of time is being wasted. And I have agonized, Dan. All of a sudden, we have Tyrion and Jaime laughing and discussing Jaime’s sexual encounters. The Hound and Podrick being wooed by a couple of Northern ladies. Tormund just being a sloppy drunk for laughs. Every second counts, but we’re just trampling over the same ground and going for cheap laughs now? Weird medieval flex. game-of-thrones-season-8-episode-4-tormund-ghostEnlarge ImageTormund and Ghost after saying goodbye to Jon. Helen Sloan/HBO We quickly say goodbye to Bronn, Sam, Gilly, Ghost and Tormund in this episode because they’ve served their purpose. That makes it super weird to watch Tyrion and Jaime wax poetic about tall lady sex instead of giving us a bit of TV that resonates emotionally. This is the endgame and we’re seeing Podrick cuddle ladies? We get it, he’s got a big pod! Benioff and Weiss threw a touchdown pass to themselves on the final play to win the Super Bowl and it feels like they’re about to fumble the ball. I don’t think people would mind if the show ended somewhat ambiguously, as long as our characters — our faves — didn’t just start acting contrary to how they have for seven(ish) seasons.Does that make Game of Thrones a bad show? Not at all. But it does make it difficult to see a future where the internet doesn’t send death threats to Benioff and Weiss or start a hashtag for #RemakeGOTSeason8. I’m worried for those guys. They’ve really done a great job! 38 Photos Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4 recap: Cersei Lannister evens the odds Game of Thrones director explains why Jon Snow didn’t pat Ghost Game of Thrones coffee cup was a ‘mistake,’ HBO says in witty apology Enlarge ImageIs this the face we’ll be pulling after the next 160 minutes of Game of Thrones?  HBO There’s only 160 minutes left in Game of Thrones, the biggest prestige TV drama that has ever existed on planet Earth. For almost a decade, we’ve championed the Starks, certain Lannisters and one Targaryen. We’ve mourned for the Starks several times, as well as heroes like Olenna Tyrell and, of course, Oberyn Martell. We’ve showered the show with praise for eight years.Most fans agree Game of Thrones has been really good for a really long time. But the tide seems to be turning. The Battle of Winterfell ending with an Arya Stark KO was where it started. Flickers of dissatisfaction were all over the internet. Reddit threads are full of disillusioned long-time fans. Twitter, an unusually joyous bastion of Game of Thrones fandom, is a battleground. With episode 4, “The Last of the Starks,” those flickers became unavoidable conflagrations, swallowing up all the online oxygen.There’s still considerable buzz around episode 5, but it excitement certainly seems to have subsided since episode 3. Like Dany’s heart, we’re divided between our love and our expectations.  Tags Share your voice Mood going into today’s episode of #GameOfThrones:pic.twitter.com/HVaBDHnkMh— Rakesh (Kyrie Swerving) (@ChiRak619) May 12, 2019 My YouTube recommended is just countless videos about how they’ve ruined #GameOfThrones— True Geordie (@TrueGeordieTG) May 9, 2019 DVB: I think we’re kind of making the same point then, that the pace of this season is just too fast for its own good. And I broadly agree.But the question isn’t “is the show flawed?” because everything is flawed. The question is, “Do those flaws make the show unenjoyable, and are they sufficient to sully the show’s until-now stellar reputation?”I can understand the argument that it does the latter, because maintaining such an elite-level production is difficult for one season, let alone eight. But the show is still super good. Jaime and Cersei. Jon and Daenerys. Arya doing whatever crazy shit she has planned. The show still has a lot of threads to tie. Season 8 hasn’t been perfect, but it has been good enough that I have faith in these plotlines to have satisfying conclusions. JR: “Everything is flawed” is some real dark, Red Wedding-type thinking, Dan. sansa0802gotSansa has been one of season 8’s standout characters.  HBO I’m not trying to sully Thrones’ reputation. This isn’t an indictment on Game of Thrones overall, it’s just… Endings are really bloody hard. Ending a sweeping fantasy epic spanning eight years of human existence so that everyone watching will be happy is near impossible. I’m forgiving! I just wanted something more, this late in the game. Just some logic.Just some respect for Ghost, man! (I’m really cut up about Ghost, alright?)I’m scared. In the Game of Thrones, you either win or you die, Dan. Many of the comments I’ve read this week suggest the faith in Benioff and Weiss is all but gone or hanging on by a thread, like Ghost’s right ear. On recent form, I believe we’re headed for disappointment…Unless you can give me one final reason Game of Thrones will deliver in its final 160 minutes.DVB: Two words. Clegane. Bowl.

Social Media Rushes To Define Trumps Covfefe Tweet

first_imgA midnight tweet from President Donald Trump has social media trying to find a meaning in the mysterious term “covfefe.”Trump tweeted just after midnight on Wednesday: “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”The tweet immediately went viral and became one of the president’s more popular posts before it was taken down after nearly six hours online. Trump poked fun at the typo, tweeting around 6 a.m., “Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!”The term became a top trending item on Twitter, with many users supplying tongue-in-cheek meanings. One user joked that “covfefe” is already a popular name for babies in states that voted for Trump. Silicon Valley executive Andrew Crow went as far to change his last name on Twitter to “Covfefe.” Jimmy Kimmel lamented that he’ll never write anything funnier than the term.Dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster checked in with an eye-rolling tweet about people looking up “covfefe” on its website. Dozens of definitions have been submitted the Urban Dictionary website, which crowdsources meanings for slang terms.The president returned to his normal Twitter routine later in the morning by slamming Democrats over the probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Report Home Prices Keep Warm in Winter Expected to Heat Up

first_img Share April 2, 2013 406 Views For the first time since 2006, national home prices survived winter without experiencing a quarterly decline, according to “”Clear Capital’s””:http://www.clearcapital.com/ market report for March. [IMAGE]Home prices ended last month with a 6.5 percent year-over-year improvement, while the quarterly gain was a modest 0.9 percent. “”It has been seven years since home price growth continued throughout winter. This is very strong evidence of the start to a new leg of the recovery, one that should give further confidence to consumers and lenders alike that the recovery is real,”” said Dr. Alex Villacorta, director of research and analytics at Clear Capital. “”As buyers become more confident the recovery is sustainable, this sentiment should grow to create a positive feedback loop.””Over the next three quarters, Clear Capital is projecting growth of 1.7 percent, which would bring the 2013 forecast to 2.6 percent. On a regional basis, Clear Capital found quarterly growth was the strongest in the West, where prices were up by 2.2 percent. The Northeast and South each saw prices grow 0.7 percent, while prices in the Midwest increased 0.3 percent quarter-over-quarter. [COLUMN_BREAK] On a yearly basis, the West also saw the strongest price gains, at 14.5 percent. The South came in at second with a 5.1 percent annual increase, followed by the Midwest (+4.2 percent) and the Northeast (+3.0 percent). According to Clear Capital’s forecast, the Northeast will lead price growth over the next three quarters with a 2.1 percent gain. The Midwest and South should experience a 1.9 percent and 1.8 percent increase, respectively, while the West will grow by just 0.7 percent. “”Recovering hard hit markets, like the West, could see buyer interest cool due to rising prices, while more fair market sellers might help boost supply,”” the report explained. On a more microscopic level, data from Clear Capital found hard hit markets such as Las Vegas, Phoenix, Atlanta, and Sacramento each posted quarterly price increases above 3 percent. Though, gains in Phoenix are expected to grow at a much more moderate pace at just 4.7 percent over the next three quarters compared to 26.8 percent last year. “”Phoenix is a great example where we expect to see that cooling trend support a more sustainable recovery. After a strong year of growth, rising prices should bring the metro back into a more normal range of growth,”” Villacorta added.The data provider, however, has high expectations for Seattle, where prices are projected to finish at 6.9 percent over the next 9 months. While most of the major markets analyzed are expected to see an upward movement in prices, small declines are projected over the next three quarters in three metros: Cleveland (-0.8 percent), Charlotte (-0.7 percent), and Cincinnati (-0.6 percent).
