first_img View Comments This would be practically perfect casting! Into the Woods star Emily Blunt is circling Disney’s new live-action musical film of Mary Poppins, reports The Wrap. The actress would reunite with her Woods director Rob Marshall on the project, which will be set in London around twenty years after the much-loved original.Blunt made her professional debut on stage opposite Judi Dench in The Royal Family. Along with Into the Woods, her multiple screen credits include Boudica, My Summer of Love, Gideon’s Daughter, The Devil Wears Prada, The Young Victoria, The Adjustment Bureau, Edge of Tomorrow, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Gulliver’s Travels, Gnomeo & Juliet, The Five-Year Engagement, Sicario and The Huntsman: Winter’s War.Finding Neverland screenwriter David Magee is set to pen the film, while Smash and Hairspray songwriting duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman will compose a new score and original songs.The new Poppins movie will focus on the other tales in author P.L. Travers’ 1934-1988 children’s book series; the 1964 Julie Andrews movie was mostly based on the first of these.The producers of the new film, John DeLuca and Marc Platt, have serious pedigree—they also both collaborated on Into the Woods. DeLuca additionally worked with Marshall on Nine; Platt is one of Wicked’s producers and was also behind Grease: Live for Fox.The stage adaptation of Mary Poppins played 2,619 performances on Broadway 2006 through 2013.

first_imgVermont’s congressional delegation ‘ Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders and Representative Peter Welch ‘ and Governor Peter Shumlin today announced that over $200,000 in Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) funds will go to support two economic development projects in Lyndon and Brighton. Lyndon State College and the Northeastern Vermont Development Association will receive $128,500 to boost manufacturing in the area. The funds will help develop professional resources, create collaboration among Northeast Kingdom manufacturing employers, expand training programs and further collaborative programs between area high schools, career and technical centers and Lyndon State College. The town of Brighton will receive $78,190 to construct a new 2,100 foot walking path along a section of Island Pond Lake, connecting it to the downtown area. This project resulted from a year-long study aimed at enhancing tourism and recreation in the community. ‘These grants will provide a vital boost to parts of our state that need it most,’ Vermont’s congressional delegation said in a statement. ‘We created the commission as a means of responding in practical ways to the common economic challenges throughout the border regions of the Northeast. These grants will help further that goal.’ ‘This is good news for creating jobs and strengthening communities in northeastern Vermont, and I thank our congressional delegation for working hard to secure these funds for Lyndon and Brighton,’ said Gov. Shumlin. Vermont’s congressional delegation was influential in creating NBRC, which directly invests federal resources for economic development and job creation in economically distressed regions of northern Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York. In Vermont, eligible counties include Essex, Franklin, Lamoille, Orleans, Caledonia and Grand Isle. Source: WASHINGTON, October 5 ‘ Vermont’s congressional delegationlast_img read more

first_imgWe have already traveled to Rab by Krka by bike and on foot with organized transport, but also by scooter. The combination with the scooter seems to me the best for hot summer days. The ride is pleasant, there are always places on the ferry, but there is also a place for a scooter in every parking lot, and parking is not paid. The ferry line Valbiska – Lopar is one of the longest. It travels an hour and forty minutes. The ride on the large, modern Jadrolinija “Krka” is comfortable and interesting. The boat passes by Plavnik, from the deck you can see Stara Baška, Prvić, Grgur, partly Goli… The Kvarner islands form a unique archipelago of the largest Adriatic islands and smaller ones, but equally interesting and unique in all respects. Krk is a bridge to the Kvarner islands. On the one hand by a bridge connected to the mainland on the other hand by good ferry lines with Cres, Lošinj and Rab. Via Rab and Stinica, you can easily reach Prizna and take a ferry to Žigljen to “step” on Pag. And Zadar is not far from Pag either… Author: Nedo PInezić, www.nedopinezic.com Photo: Kvarner.hr I often hear that “guests have nothing to do”, “we have no content”, “nothing is offered”… It is not uncommon for people who are not familiar enough with the offer of attractions in their immediate environment to say so. If as a host you do not know your area, then you can hardly suggest a new experience to the guest, a new experience that will further strengthen his satisfaction with staying with you. You can call the island of Rab an island of happiness, an island of contrast, an island of beaches, an island of “Rapska fjera”, good gastronomy, nautical… and you won’t go wrong. Rab is all that and much more. It simply invites you to visit it again in some other way. For example by bike, or to rent a boat and tour it by the sea; and you can embark on an expedition to discover the interior by hiking to abandoned hamlets… WE HAVE ATTRACTIONS, BUT WE HAVE NO ACTION We are only slowly discovering Rab, like other Kvarner islands. For starters we can confirm that we have around us a lot of content and attractions that are interesting to our guests but we have to help them discover them. RAB IS SPECIAL KVARNER ISLANDS The price of a return ticket for a scooter with two passengers without a discount is HRK 280,00. The cost of fuel for touring the entire island of Rab does not exceed 20,00 kn, and a scooter can be rented on Krk from 300,00 kn per day. The total cost of a full day trip to Rab from Krk with a tour of the entire island of Rab for two people is 600,00 kn for transport and another 400,00 kn for food, souvenirs and the like. For only 66 euros per person it is possible to experience an unforgettable experience of riding a big boat from Valbiska to Lopar, swimming on “Paradise Beach” in Lopar, on “Suha Punta”, visit Supetarska Draga, Kampor, the town of Rab, Barbat „ Related news: BY KVARNER ISLANDS BY BIKE, SCOOTER, BUT ALSO ON FOOT ILLEGALITY IN THE LAW ON TOURIST TAXlast_img read more

first_imgIndonesia has made an important step forward in its Satellite of the Republic of Indonesia (Satria) project, the country’s biggest telecommunication satellite to date valued at US$550 million, with the signing of a preparatory work agreement between an Indonesian consortium and a French-Italian firm on Thursday.The signing of the agreement on the multifunction satellite project, managed under the Communications and Information Ministry, was between two companies, namely satellite provider PT Satelit Nusantara Tiga, part of the consortium of PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), and French-Italian aerospace manufacturer Thales Alenia Space (TAS). PSN consortium is the lead contractor and operator of the project.The satellite is envisioned to boost connectivity inclusion in the country, providing free internet connection to 150,000 public facilities, including schools, regional government offices and health facilities. Satria will have a throughput capacity of 150 billion bits per second (Gbps), three times the capacity of the nine telecommunication satellites that Indonesia currently uses, according to Communications and Information Minister Johnny G. Plate.“This satellite project is part of the nation’s program to lessen the disparity in internet access and increase the number of internet users,” Johnny told reporters on Thursday, while also mentioning that the project showed the country’s robust investment climate for telecommunication infrastructure even during the pandemic.The project, which is funded under a public-private partnership (PPP) scheme, is expected to be put into orbit and operate by 2023, the ministry stated.Despite the large number of internet users, Indonesia’s internet penetration rate remained at 64 percent in January 2020, according to DataReportal, lagging behind neighboring Brunei, Singapore and Thailand, where internet penetration rates exceed 70 percent. The Communications and Information Ministry said in June that approximately 12,500 villages in the country had no access to the internet.Read also: Govt to roll out $2b for ICT development in 2021, boost inclusionJohnny said that there were many investment opportunities in the telecommunication sector, as the country required a satellite capacity of around 900 Gbps by 2030.“The preparatory work agreement will also ensure that the manufacturing of the satellite will be conducted on time within the contract and marks that the funding agreement will also take effect,” the minister added.The government plans to cooperate with the United States-based Space-X to launch the satellite.It plans to use the so-called availability payment scheme to repay the investors involved in the project in periodic installments over 15 years.Availability payment is a fee structure in which a public agency makes periodic payments to the private sector to provide infrastructure services of a specified standard.The project cost will be funded through a mixture of export credit from France and China at $425 million with equity of $125 million, according to PSN president director Adi Rahman Adiwoso.Export credits are government financial support, direct financing, guarantees, insurance or interest rate support provided to foreign buyers to assist in the financing of a purchase.“This payment scheme is a great one, because there are the advantages of low interest rates, longer payback periods and overall great savings,” he said.Meanwhile, the ministry’s telecommunications and information accessibility agency director Anang Latif said the ministry was optimistic the Satria project could be launched on time with the persistent growth in the telco sector amid the COVID-19 crisis.The information and communication technology (ICT) sector grew 9.6 percent and 10.88 percent year-on-year (yoy) in the first and second quarters this year, respectively, while the economy contracted 5.32 percent in the second quarter, according to Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data.“We are on the right track for investment in the ICT sector and to accelerate digitalization,” he said.Last year, the government inaugurated its $1.3 billion Palapa Ring broadband project, a 35,000-kilometer fiber optic network spanning the archipelago.Anang went on to say that the satellite would support the Palapa Ring project as satellite transmission could reach rural areas that were yet to be covered by the fiber optic network.The ministry plans to start building the satellite communication’s ground segment, such as fixed or mobile transmission and reception, in 2022, Anang said.Indonesia Information Communication Technology Institute executive director Heru Sutadi suggested that the Satria project could be upgraded going forward to meet the country’s internet needs over the next 15 years.“Because of COVID-19, each household now needs roughly 20 Mbps for seamless video calls and streaming, among other things. Offices definitely need more than that,” he told The Jakarta Post on Friday. “I think our bandwidth needs in 2023 will also increase rapidly, so, it is wise to upgrade Satria’s capacity.”He added that the government could double Satria’s capacity to 300 Gbps or reduce the internet recipient points to reach the maximum bandwidth need.”Satellite projects are very expensive. We also need to consider the investment needed to build the supporting ground infrastructure,” he said. “The government can surely negotiate to increase Satria’s capacity for no added fee.”Topics :last_img read more

first_imgCredit: Thomas AlexanderGerben de Zwart, APG’s head of quant equities, at IPE’s Equities conference in JuneAt the conference, De Zwart noted that the rise of passive investing was also being reflected in the bond markets, albeit with a delay of several years compared with equity markets.At the same time, as a result of regulation, more trades and trade information were being reported, which could be collected with the help of advanced computers and data storage.“If you combine that with the academic research that is finding added value in the corporate bond markets for similar quant strategies, my hypothesis is that within five years it could very well be that the structure of the corporate bond markets will be similar to the equity markets,” he said. APG currently has a 45% allocation to quant strategies as part of its €170bn listed equity portfolio. It is the asset manager for the €405bn Dutch civil service scheme ABP. De Zwart said the amount APG planned to allocate to quantitative credit strategies was not yet fixed. It wanted it to represent a “serious step”, although in terms of its whole portfolio it would be a “toe in the water”, he added. “We target managers who really take responsibility of the performance through a quant approach,” he added, “and who for that reason take quant investing very seriously and spend time and resources on enhancements or continuous enhancements of their investment strategy.” APG, one of Europe’s biggest asset managers, is planning to allocate to quantitative strategies for investing in corporate bonds.Speaking at IPE’s equities conference in London last week, Gerben de Zwart, head of quantitative equities at the €470bn pension investor, said he foresaw the corporate bond markets evolving to resemble the structure in the equity markets over the next five years. “A part is allocated to passive, a part is allocated to quant strategies and a part is high conviction fundamental investments,” he told delegates. “We want to be one of the leaders on the quant side and we are currently looking at allocating money to quant managers within the corporate bond markets.”Speaking to IPE, De Zwart said APG wanted to hire one or two external quant credit managers “with the aim to outperform the credit index through quant investing”.last_img read more
