Shock for “Mom” fans: leading actress leaves popular tv sitcom

The US sitcom “Mom”, which runs on tv in this country, has been very popular for seven seasons. Season 8, which has already been confirmed, is now under a bad star: Christy actress Anna Faris is leaving the series.

In “Mom”, single mother Christy (“Scary Movie” star Anna Faris) and her own mother Bonnie (Oscar winner Allison Janney, “I, Tonya”), who both struggle with alcoholism and depression, have each other over seven seasons cabled. But although the sitcom continues, this previously central relationship is now coming to an abrupt end:

In the run-up to season 8, Anna Faris surprisingly announced her departure from “Mom”.

In the run-up to season 8, Anna Faris surprisingly announced her departure from “Mom”.

The US industry magazines report this unanimously, which also cite an official explanatory statement by Faris as follows:

“The past seven years with ‘Mom’ have been some of the most fulfilling of my career. I’m so grateful to [series co-creator] Chuck [Lorre], the writers, and my great fellow actors for creating a truly wonderful work experience. Even when my journey as Christy comes to an end – which allows me to take advantage of new opportunities – I will watch the next season and cheer my TV family along. “

What does that mean for Season 8 of “Mom”?

It has been certain since the beginning of 2019 that “Mom” will have an eighth season. As with many other series, the start of production has been delayed due to the Corona crisis. According to the current status, filming should start on September 14, 2020 – and that should not change after Faris ‘retirement.

What is certain for the makers of “Two And A Half Men” – and “The Big Bang Theory” creator Chuck Lorre, however, is that they will not simply change the cast of Christy. Instead, the farewell to her character, without the actress herself, should be addressed in the series. How exactly this will look is still unclear 9movies.

When is the 8th season “Mom” coming?

When the eighth “Mom” season will be launched on the US broadcaster CBS remains to be seen due to the delays in production. However, the aim is probably to start in November 2020.

Before we get to see Season 8 on tv in this country, it should take a long time, however, as the seventh season ended there just a few days ago. At the start of the season there were nine months between the US premiere and German broadcast.

I beg your pardon So few people should originally have died in John Wick

I beg your pardon? So few people should originally have died in “John Wick”!

Does there always have to be so much violence in films? Definitely in “John Wick” films, otherwise it just wouldn’t be the same! But originally the Keanu Reeves actioner was supposed to be very, much more harmless …

Would the “John Wick” franchise have made it into five parts, a cinema spin-off and a TV series if the original vision for the first film had been implemented? We boldly type: never in life!

In an interview with, “John Wick” director Chad Stahelski revealed how different and, above all, how much less bloody the story was in the first draft of the script:

how much less bloody the story was in the first draft of the script:

“It was much more cautious. I believe only three people died in the original script, two of them in a car accident. It was very, very minimalist. I read it and immediately thought of Greek mythology. I’ve seen it more than a fable, a surreal action film that is not down-to-earth and gray, but somehow different. “

A ballistic ballet

Chad Stahelski then goes on to explain how the many extra deaths (after all, the number of kills in his version increases from 3 to 80) came about:

Chad Stahelski then explains further,
How the many extra deaths (after all, the number of kills in its version increases from 3 to 80) came about:

“People keep making fun of the number of dead. But the way I and my team approached it, it was always about a choreographed flow of movements and set pieces FFMovies. We wanted some kind of ballet dance that felt almost like a live performance.

But such an effective killer as (Keanu Reeves) also brings with it his very special challenges for filming:

“The only problem is, if you shoot people in the head, they can’t get up again. So you can’t reuse the stuntman. Every time Keanu turned on his own axis, he shot five guys. So I needed more and more new stunt people. “

(Much) more dead in “John Wick 4 5”

In “John Wick 2” (128 dead) and “John Wick 3” (94 dead) the kill count was noticeably increased again – and slowly it looks as if John Wick could still reach four digits!

After all, “John Wick 4” and “John Wick 5”, which are to be shot together in one piece, have already been officially confirmed – and there are some indications that it will continue after that. Finally, a cinema spin-off “Ballerina” and a TV series (“The Continental”) are still being worked on in parallel, in order to constantly expand the hit-man universe of “John Wick” outside of the main series.

“John Wick 4” and “John Wick 5”, which are to be shot together in one piece, have already been officially confirmed

“John Wick 4” is scheduled to hit cinemas in May 2022, but there is no announced date for “John Wick 5” yet. And so it should go on in “John Wick 4”:

“John Wick 4” should come to the cinemas in May 2022, for “John Wick 5” there is still no announced date. And so it should go on in “John Wick 4”:

After Truth beats Tenet in German cinemas

“After Truth” beats “Tenet” in German cinemas

It was a close race, but after tickets sold, the teenage romance “After Passion 2” is now number 1 in the German cinema charts, ahead of the Nolan thriller “Tenet”.

When the author of these lines spent the last Saturday evening with old friends, none of whom are film freaks, at some point the sentence came up: “Really, the cinemas are open again?” That the cinemas have already been open for about two months must have been Apparently word gets around first – but films like “After Truth” and “Tenet” help.

1st place: “After Truth”

The cinemas need films with a large audience, it’s that simple. They need films like the teenage love drama “After Truth”, based on Anna Todd’s bestseller, which, according to figures from Blickpunkt: Film, drew almost 240,000 viewers to the cinemas from Thursday to Sunday (for which Wednesday previews of the restart, 52,000 tickets were sold). Although “After Truth” started worse than its predecessor “After Passion” in 2019 with 330,000 visitors, there was no Corona in 2019 either.

2nd place: “Tenet”

Christopher Nolan himself said it in an interview: No film can save cinema on its own. He was commenting on the industry’s enormous expectations of “Tenet” to lure the masses into the cinemas after the Corona break. Whether a film like the sci-fi thriller that is confusing for many viewers is even suitable for this in the long term, as soon as the word gets out about how demanding it is, remains to be seen – but “Tenet” is still making its very significant contribution to saving the cinemas:

According to the projections, 235,000 cinema tickets were sold in this country between Thursday and Sunday for “Tenet”, which put the film just behind “After Truth”, now has a total of 740,000 viewers and will very soon surpass Nolan’s “Dunkirk”, which has 750,000 visitors had – mind you in 2017 123movie.

The results of “Tenet” so far also give reason for hope internationally:

Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” was launched in the USA and China

Places 3-5

According to InsideKino, last weekend was the best weekend at the cinema for six months. That there is still a lot of room for improvement in terms of visitor numbers is shown by positions 3 to 5, where “I Still Believe” (18,000 spectators), “Follow Me” (17,200) and “The Boonies – A great journey through time” (17,000). In times before Corona, no film with these numbers would very likely have made it into the top 5.

But no Riverdale star New Actress for Batwoman found

But no “Riverdale” star: New Actress for “Batwoman” found

Rumored “Riverdale” star Vanessa Morgan, the top candidate should be for the new main character in the second season of “Batwoman”, but now the role went to another actress: Javicia Leslie ( “God friended Me”).

In May 2020, there was an ordinary shock for “Batwoman” fans: The former actress Ruby Rose announced before the start of the second season they were pulling out. In the days and weeks afterwards there was speculation about the reasons for the departure, soon stood luckily that “Batwoman” goes on, but not with the Rose, played by Kate Kane, but with a new figure.

This new figure, Ryan Wilder should be rumored played by “Riverdale” star Vanessa Morgan. These rumors have now but turned out to be wrong (or Morgan and serial makers just do not come together), because:

The new main character Ryan Wilder is played in the second season of “Batwoman” of Javicia Leslie.

The new main character Ryan Wilder is played in the second season of “Batwoman” of Javicia Leslie.

Leslie was previously seen in shows like “MacGyver,” “The Family Business” and “God friended Me”. And their involvement in the latter could for “Batwoman” role well have been an advantage, because it is a production of Warner Television and Arrow verses mastermind Greg Berlanti.

OMG!! This is amazing!! I am so glad Batwoman will be played by an amazing Black woman. ❤️ I want to congratulate Javicia Leslie on taking over the bat cape. You are walking into an amazing cast and crew. I can’t wait to watch season 2 you are going to be amazing !! ❤️

Rose posted on Instagram a picture of Leslie and wrote: “OMG !! That’s great! I am so glad that Batwoman is played by a great black woman. I want to congratulate Leslie Javicia that it takes over the Bat-Cape. “

New details on Ryan Wilder

As part of the announcement of Leslie’s commitment Warner and The CW have also released more details on the new main character. Ryan Wilder to have little in common with Kate Kane, years spent as a drug trafficker and the conflict with the police of Gotham often.

Today she lives with her houseplant in a van and a woman who would steal milk to feed a stray cat, but one can kill with bare hands. Ryan is a highly talented and totally undisciplined fighter, openly gay, athletic, rough, passionate and fallible.

Act on the development of telecommunications networks and services already signed by the president

The Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland has just announced that on September 6, 2019, President Andrzej Duda signed the Act on the development of telecommunications services and networks, it will enter into force 30 days after being announced.

The Act on the development of telecommunications networks and services is also often referred to as the mega-act, because it introduces changes to as many as 14 existing ones. As we learn from its justification, the goal is to remove existing administrative and legal barriers that constitute an obstacle to the construction of broadband networks. This reduction of administrative, legal, procedural and financial burdens is to be a condition for Poland to achieve the objectives set out in the National Broadband Plan and commitments to provide access to modern telecommunications services resulting from membership of the European Union.

So what changes should you expect? Expanded among others definition of telecommunications infrastructure with a slight impact on the above-ground cable line, the possibility of local governments financing investment costs, a Broadband Fund was created as an instrument to support the development of broadband Internet access services from domestic funds, and a chapter was added that contains regulations regarding the creation of an Information System for Radiation Generating Installations Electromagnetic, which will be a public, free database containing information about the electromagnetic field in the environment technologi.

Rates for occupying the road lane were also reduced in relation to telecommunication infrastructure facilities and equipment, and the possibility for the local government unit to conclude the so-called investment agreement, under which, in exchange for the investor’s implementation of an investment meeting the community’s collective needs, the rate stipulated in the Act can be further reduced (such investments desired by the local government may not only be broadband networks, but also electricity, water and gas networks). Moreover, access to forest areas for placing telecommunications infrastructure in these areas has been greatly facilitated.

The modifications to the environmental protection law, where the regulation on permissible levels of electromagnetic fields in the environment has changed, cannot be omitted. In addition, from the entry into force of the Act, measurements of electromagnetic fields around installations or devices will be carried out immediately before commissioning of the installation or device, and the manager or owner of the property on which there has been a change in the existing state of development and development of the property, resulting in changes in the occurrence of places available for people around the installation or device, will be able to apply in writing for new measurements.

The Act also increases the possibilities of building infrastructure in areas where until now there was a ban or significant restrictions in this area, such as: health resorts, national parks, nature reserves (e.g. by lifting the bans and restrictions on locating non-linear telecommunications infrastructure in spa areas and enabling – in strictly defined cases and after meeting certain requirements – the construction of non-linear telecommunications infrastructure installations in the area of ​​national parks or nature reserves).


T. rex, the most famous dinosaur, had its own air conditioning in its head

Of course, the word air conditioning is a kind of abuse here, but as scientists have just discovered, this dinosaur was able to regulate its body temperature in a very interesting way.

Thermal photos of alligators taken by a team of scientists led by Casey Holliday from the University of Missouri School of Medicine suggest that Tyrannosaurus rex may have had blood vessels in the skull that helped this giant predator regulate body temperature, in other words it had biological conditioning in it. So it seems that although we have been trying to unravel the mysteries of this iconic dinosaur, which is constantly arousing the imagination of scientists and children around the world, it still hides many secrets.

T. rex lived in the Cretaceous period, some 68-66 million years ago and could boast of really impressive dimensions – it was up to 12.3 meters long and weighed up to 14 tons, and its first skeleton was discovered in 1900. Since then, staffs of researchers have been studying it piece by piece, trying to learn as much as possible about its anatomy, physiology and habits. Unfortunately, despite this more than 100 years of experience in this field, the brief still has not been able to solve all puzzles, e.g. related to his body temperature.

Until the sixties of the last century, scientists claimed that, as befits a reptile, T. rex was cold-blooded, but later there was evidence to suggest otherwise, i.e. both he and the other dinosaurs were probably warm-blooded. How was it actually? The first, the second, or maybe something completely in between? To this day it is difficult to say, but as recent experiments show, it certainly had a mechanism that made sure that the predator did not overheat or did not freeze too much.

Researchers from the University of Missouri School of Medicine believe that these are cranial blood vessels located in two large holes in the head of T. rexa, which acted as an internal thermostat – so far scientific circles have said that these holes are places for muscles Jaws: It’s very strange for muscles to come out of the jaw, make a 90-degree turn, and continue to the skull vault web alpha directory. Either way, we have a lot of convincing evidence for the theory of blood vessels in this place, based on our work with alligators and other reptiles, “says Casey Holliday.

To learn more about these holes, the team used thermal photos taken by alligators in St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, Florida. – Alligator body temperature depends on the environment. However, we noticed that when it was getting cold and the reptiles wanted to warm up, the thermal image showed large hot spots in said skull holes, indicating a rise in temperature. When it got warmer, the points became dark, as if someone had turned them off to keep the temperature low. This corresponds well with earlier evidence suggesting that alligators have internal thermostats.

And since there are many similarities between the skull of the alligator and T. rex, researchers believe that the dinosaur had the same mechanism. What is interesting, however, still does not answer the question whether the tyrannosaur was stable or cold-blooded, because in nature we observe similar solutions not only in reptiles, but also mammals. For example, dogs also have cranial blood vessels that protect their brains from overheating, which would be very useful for a warm-blooded predator, because it might suggest that it would be able to chase its prey until the same one died from overheating. In short, we still have many questions, but there is no guarantee that we will ever get answers to them.


Light Phone II, i.e. a smartphone to fight addiction to … a smartphone

Most of us without our smartphone in sight feel practically like without a hand, but at the same time it is difficult for us to admit that we have a problem with addiction to new technologies.

However, if we notice a problem and want to repair our relationship with a smartphone and other mobile devices a bit, then Light Phone II will help us. Of course, no one expects us to completely cut off contact with the world, but limiting communications to the necessary minimum may prove beneficial in many cases. So what is Light Phone II? All in all a basic smartphone, but designed with the aim of reaching for it as rarely as possible.

All to cut off the flood of overwhelming amounts of information from social media that put pressure on us and force us to spend long hours with eyes gazing at the screen – as recent studies show, we often break our sleep just to look at the notifications! And here the minimalist Light Phone phones come into action, which only offer basic communication options, i.e. conversations and text messages, and several other functions.

With the help of Light Phone II, we can call and write messages, we have a calendar, calculator, alarm, notebook and the option to listen to music (3.5 mm jack) and as the originators of the project say: – Light Phone II will never have social media , channels, ads, news and emails. As for the specification, we are talking primarily about a small 2.84-inch E Ink touch screen, battery providing up to 13 days of standby time, a microUSB port for charging and Bluetooth connectivity.

In short, components from the previous era that have no chance in the clash even with the most budget smartphones recently hit the market, but that was the concept of the manufacturer darknethub. And everything would be fine if it wasn’t for the prohibitive price of as much as $ 350 – of course we all understand the idea of ​​the project, but if you can have a decent smartphone for the same amount of money, it will be difficult to convince anyone to buy. Or maybe we are wrong and the manufacturer will initiate a new trend with his solution? We’ll find out in October, because then the device will officially hit the market.


India is becoming new China. Cheap workforce makes iPhones for $ 4 a day

Someone had to make money from the trade war between the United States and China, and the latest reports suggest that it will be Foxconn, who wants to use India for this purpose, which is growing to the next power.

Foxconn believes that this will be the best place to assemble all future iPhones, and the local government confirms the concern in this belief, believing that his country will win something for themselves and eventually become a global electronics production center 1337 directory. Will this work out? It is hard to say, but given that Apple must be ready for a 10-15% tariff imposed by the Donald Trump administration on goods imported from China, it will certainly be looking for a cheaper alternative, which may be India.

Until now, the American giant was looking around in Brazil and Vietnam (following the example of Google, which wants to assemble its Pixel smartphones in the latter country), but everything indicates that India may be a better option. Foxconn has already built two factories there and is waiting for building permits for another two to gradually increase its share in the production of new iPhones. And why India? According to Bloomberg, the matter is simple, there is a lot of very cheap labor there, and we are talking about a level comparable with China.

The Indian government had previously been rather reluctant to cooperate with major manufacturers, but now it has apparently changed its mind and intends to make a solid profit from the war between the US and China. What’s more, the necessary actions have already been taken to adapt local regulations to new conditions and encourage manufacturers to build factories – but it is worth remembering that a lot has to happen on the spot, because even now road and rail infrastructure is not ready for an increased number of producers and implementation of huge supply chains. Either way, the government’s plan is to increase India’s manufacturing value from $ 25 billion to $ 400 billion by 2024.

According to Anshul Gupta, a researcher from Gartner India: – Everything is starting to shape. India can increase its production capacity and help the world become independent of China. It took China 30 years to reach its current position, but now many large concerns, such as Amazon, Apple, Google or Dell have expressed interest in India, so it can go much faster.

Unfortunately, there are also less pleasant sides of the whole process, namely the current Foxconn factories employ mainly women who get $ 4 a day for assembling such equipment as iPhone X, XS or alternatives from Xiaomi. For many women, this is an opportunity to take up their first job away from home, for which they are paid and a chance to live above the poverty line, but it can not be hidden that $ 130 a month is not very impressive, and Foxconn has a lot of employment controversy minors and poor working conditions, so it would be good if someone had their finger on the pulse.


YouTube will voluntarily pay up to $ 200 million in fines for “children”

Some time ago, we learned that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has initiated an investigation against the media giant regarding violations of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. And now the consequences are coming.

We remind you that this is an act that entered into force on April 1, 2000, and its main purpose is to protect the privacy and collection of personal data of children under the age of thirteen who are users of websites directly addressed to them or other services, if they have they know that they collect the personal data of children under the age of thirteen. It cannot be hidden that YouTube must have known that some of its users are children who meet these criteria, so now it must bear the relevant consequences.

The first is the penalty imposed by the commission, the exact amount of which is not yet known, but will probably amount to USD 150-200 million. In addition, the service must make some changes to avoid similar situations in the future, but we will probably know more details in the next week, when the FTC will present its official position on the matter. It is worth emphasizing, however, that most of the committee’s requirements will certainly be met by the new YouTube Kids service, which has just started, but on the other hand, this one before the debut aroused the opposition of some creators best web guides.

It has appropriate filters and records in the privacy policy to protect young recipients (and creators) and cut them off from violent and inappropriate content, including advertisements targeted at them. Hence the Google idea of ​​transferring content for minors to YouTube Kids, which the creators are afraid of, because it may mean smaller ranges and profits. And according to recent research from the Pew Research Center, every video with a child under the age of 13 collects nearly 3 times more views than material on a different topic, despite the fact that YouTube requires its users to be more than 13 years old:

– This small subcategory of movies that were created for children or appeared in children, especially up to 13 years of age, was more popular in terms of the number of page views than any other topic examined by us in this report – we read in the report. No wonder that the authors of these channels are hostile, especially since the new regulations do not guarantee that children will not find a workaround to use the site on the existing basis. On the other hand, we have organizations dealing with privacy on the web, which claim that the FTC has treated the next giant too gently, while legalizing its new empire.


A sensational discovery in Canada. Microorganisms live there 3000 meters underground

Canadian geologists made an extraordinary discovery during their work at Kidd Mine, the world’s deepest copper and zinc mine. First, the find was the oldest water in the world, and now the deepest living microorganisms.

Scientists, working under the leadership of Barbara Sherwood Lollar, made their first sensational discovery at the Kidd Mine mine in 2013. At a depth of 2.5 kilometers, sulfur and hydrogen rich water 500 million years ago was discovered there. A few years later, they discovered water that was 3 billion years old.

The team is now reporting an even more interesting find. Namely, microorganisms were discovered in the mine, so-called sulfate reducers, operating at a depth of up to 2.5 kilometers. What fascinates scientists the most, they are completely separated from the outside world, because they live under a thick layer of Precambrian rocks, and despite this fact they can be there and develop for hundreds of millions or even billions of years techboss.

The samples of water taken by researchers from the mine contained a small amount of microorganisms, about 1 thousand to 10 thousand cells per milliliter. Meanwhile, in surface water it is about 100,000 cells per milliliter. This shows us that microorganisms are not as common there as it is on the surface, due to the extreme conditions prevailing there, but they still occur.

The discovery is great news for astrobiologists who are looking for life on alien planets. Similar situations could have once happened also on Mars, where huge deposits of water can now be deep below the surface, and in them can exist simple organisms. Future missions will let us know the truth.
