Music and entertainment fans across America are still swooning over the on-stage chemistry displayed by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga during their live performance at the Academy Awards on Sunday night. Their hit remake of A Star Is Born was one of the more talked-about films going into this year’s awards season, and will even return to movie theaters with 12 minutes of unseen footage and a new song beginning on Friday.The movie has become so popular, in fact, that Korn singer Jonathan Davis took his turn at portraying the fictional story by starring in a parody video—appropriately titled A Star Is Korn. The clip is a shot-for-shot remake of A Star Is Born‘s original trailer. The storyline for the updated trailer was written by comedians Anna Salinas and Heather Alarcón Higginbotham, and features Davis acting as Lady Gaga’s character. The parody trailer even uses the original trailer’s audio throughout most of the video—that is until Korn’s “Freak On A Leash” comes in like a bat out of bell beginning at the 1:30-minute mark. Fans can enjoy the entire trailer for A Star Is Korn as well as the original on which it was based below.A Star Is Korn – Parody Trailer [Video: Pickle Films]A Star Is Born – Official Trailer[Video: Warner Bros.

A stunning photograph of a centipede-inspired robot (called a centipede millibot) developed by Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) graduate student Katie Hoffman and faculty member Robert Wood was chosen as an Honorable Mention (tie) by Science and the National Science Foundation in the Photography category in the 2010 International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge.Of their selection, the editors wrote:Imitating insects is all the rage in robotics right now. Graduate student Katie Hoffman based this 12-legged, segmented robot on the body morphology of a centipede. The top view shows the actuators that control each leg, the reflection shows the flexible connections between the segments, and the penny gives a sense of the robot’s size. Hoffman says most robots that size mimic cockroaches, which have only six legs and much more rigid bodies. By modeling a centipede, she hopes to study how flexibility and body undulations enhance locomotion.Wood, an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at SEAS and a Core Member of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard, oversees one of the world’s leading labs on microrobotics. The centipede millibot is part of the lab’s efforts in advancing ambulatory microrobots.Hoffman explained that the photo was not edited in any way, but came straight from the camera. Each of the legs is etched with the words “Harvard Microrobotics Lab” in 150-micron wide text.See the centipede millibot in motion.
“In the CES, I was guided as a guide by profession. I got an invitation from them – so they offered me a foreign language learning program whose course started in early November 2018, which I accepted and traveled over 70 kilometers every working day for a month and a half to attend lectures. At the beginning of January 2019, I was greeted by a cold shower – I was told that as a tourist guide I was losing all rights and asking for a refund. So, I am put in front of a wall: I am not allowed to continue my education, I lose the right to take exams and all the lectures I have attended so far and all my efforts fall into the water”, Explains Anita Vukoja. “Who will compensate me for a month of regular foreign language attendance and those 70 kilometers that I traveled every working day at my own expense? And now I am required to return the money and pay for the course, which costs eight thousand kunas, and I am an unemployed person.” We have previously written about illogicality and multiple interpretations Of the Law in defining the status of a tourist guide as a self-employed person. As we can see, the inconsistency of this different interpretation of the law within the same institution sounds like a “broken phone” and the story spins in a circle. However, the matter must be taken seriously because these are unemployed people who have been denied the basic rights prescribed by the Labor Market Act. Anita Vukoja contacted us in the editorial office with a similar experience, whose story we are transmitting in its entirety. In the case of Anita Vukoja, the above request for income taxation was not submitted because she is unemployed, ie she does not earn income, but for some reason she is still registered as a person with a free profession and thus does not exercise CES rights. TOURIST GUIDES ARE CONSIDERED A FREE OCCUPATION AND HAVE NO RIGHTS AS UNEMPLOYED PERSONS “I also contacted the ombudswoman and sent letters to 3 ministries, and the CES does not know which ministry is in charge of them. On the one hand I hear that it is the Ministry of Tourism, and on the other hand they say it is the Ministry of Labor. They spin in a circle and tell one and the same story”, Explains Anita. “I do not want anyone to get into the problems I have run into, but I want to protect myself and others and I just want to point out that he does not treat all professions equally”. Having contacted the CES, but also the Association of Croatian Tourist Guides and the Association of Tourist Guides Liburnia, we can conclude that the law is either misinterpreted by the CES or there are contradictions in the rules of self-employment. Article 29, paragraph 2 of the Income Tax Act states that a free profession means an independent activity of tourist workers. However, in order for a tourist guide to be considered independent, Article 39, paragraph 6 of the Act stipulates that a person is obliged to submit a request to change the method of determining and taxing income “at the beginning of income, at the beginning of the activity or by the end of the current year. “. Accordingly, a person who does not perform an activity is not obliged to register a self-employed activity before starting to perform the activity or before starting to generate income. EVERYONE WHO HAS PASSED THE EXAM FOR A TOURIST GUIDE IS CONSIDERED SELF-EMPLOYED? RELATED NEWS: Anita Vukoja In order to get a reasonable explanation of the situation, Anita Vukoja contacted the CES Zadar Regional Office. In its response, the institution refers to the Law on the Provision of Tourism Services, which states that a tourist guide, in order to provide tourist guide services, must be entered in the central register for catering and tourism services. Furthermore, the explanation of the institution points out that according to the Labor Market Act, an unemployed person is, among other things, a person who does not have a registered free profession. However, since tourist guides are entered in the said register, they are not considered unemployed under this law, although they do not have a registered trade, enterprise or freelance occupation.

MORE NEWS: Number of homes sold for profit set to rise News reports said the Crazy Clark’s discount variety store sold for more than $100 million in 2009 to DSG.But the couple’s luxury unit is expected to attract plenty of attention from the market, and is tipped to sell for north of $5 million.It is one of only 10 units in the Aquila development, each boasting its own floor. Mrs Clark said it was time to downsize, with their daughters, aged 19 and 21 years, about to leave home. She recently gave the Courier Mail an exclusive tour of the house-sized apartment, and the views did not disappoint. WOW: What we saw from the apartment during the Sunsuper Riverfire“I have just come back from working in the US and Riverfire, it is the prime time to show it off, to promote it,” she said.“What we have really loved about it was that it still feels connected to nature and the river.”The couple bought the spectacular, single floor in 2015 for $4.65 million, and added a few of their own touches, but Mrs Clark said it was otherwise “turnkey” ready.New Farm has one of Brisbane’s highest median sales prices, and property records show eight of the 10 other apartments within the Aquila complex have sold for more than $5 million, including one that sold for $6.5 million last year. A photo taken from the entertaining deck when the apartment was on the market in 2013At a massive 468sq m, the Clark apartment is bigger than the average modern house, and the features are top class.The designer kitchen, which has European appliances and a marble island bench, overlooks the dining and lounge area which flows on to the large entertaining deck.Floor-to-ceiling glass runs the length of the main living area, framing the river and city views.The main bedroom and its discreet balcony also take full advantage of the vista. Other features include a full wall of bespoke cabinetry, an ensuite featuring Statuario marble and a walk-in robe. New photographs will be taken soon but we did get this snap from the main bedroomFurther down the hallway there are two more large bedrooms, both ensuited and with their own walk-in wardrobes and balconies.“These were perfect for the girls,” Mrs Clark said.

MADRID: Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has hailed his players and coach Zinedine Zidane after they wrapped up the 2019-20LaLiga title.”We really wanted to win this league title and that is what we have done,” Perez told Spanish television network Movistar. “They have all put in enormous performances, especially Karim Benzema, Thibaut Courtois and Casemiro, while Sergio Ramos is more than a captain. They have all built a brilliant team spirit while Zidane is the architect of this title win as he has put the players to work. We are so pleased.” Earlier, Zidane had stated that he is feeling like the happiest person in the world at the moment. “It’s huge. It’s a constant battle. There are 38 games, and only at the end can you achieve something great like today. I’m extremely thankful to the players, first and foremost, because they’re the ones fighting out on the pitch,” Zidane was quoted as saying at the post-match presser by the club’s official website. “I have my role and I’m with them, but it’s a team effort. This is a huge achievement, it’s incredibly emotional. It’s very tough to win the Spanish league, very tough indeed. “There are people who say that happiness makes no noise, but I’m the happiest person in the world on the inside right now. Many thanks to everyone for the support,” he added. IANS Also Watch: Truck Catches Fire in Nagaon; Locals Suspect Foul Play
New Delhi: The upcoming clash between Australia and India will also be the clash of two of the best spinners in the world in Ravichandran Ashwin and Nathan Lyon. Both bowlers, who made their Test debuts in 2011, have achieved tremendous success for their sides in the last couple of years. Lyon has produced memorable spells against India, including his 12-wicket haul in Adelaide in 2014/15 which helped Australia to a memorable 48-run win. Speaking after the end of the third day between Cricket Australia XI and India, Ashwin admitted he admires Lyon’s ability and can learn a thing or two in the upcoming four-Test series beginning on December 6 in Adelaide.Read More |KL Rahul finds new ways to get out: Sanjay Bangar“I also watch his videos. We started our Test careers at the same time so obviously mutual admiration is there. He has done well over the last couple years and he is bowling well. The ball is coming out well off his hand. What can I learn? Probably drop the ball at the right spots and probably as the series goes on look forward to a good competition,” Ashwin said.Read More |Ricky Ponting makes bold prediction for Australia vs India TestsAustralia has been plagued by off-field issues ever since the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town. With no Steve Smith and David Warner in the side, the batting is weak and results have not gone their way. India have a chance to break their jinx Down Under but Ashwin brushes off the favorites tag for Virat Kohli’s side.“The whole talk about India starting favourites, even when Australia came to India they were talking us up, and it looks like more of a strategy for us. I personally think you have to go one day at a time. It’s never easy to come over to Australia and win series. In the Ashes they almost whitewashed England, knocked them over, and so as far as I’m concerned they are starting favourites,” Ashwin said.Prepared for long haulThe offspinner has said the nature of wickets in Australia is pretty flat and it won’t be easy to run through the opposition. The nature of pitches in England and South Africa helped the bowlers a lot but Ashwin admits India have to maintain the intensity every hour and on an everyday basis in order to achieve success.“You don’t turn up to Australia thinking wickets are going to seam or spin around. They are always going to be flat we know that. It’s more about getting your noses ahead in Australia. Every hour, the game can get away from you really fast in the field. We have some quality batsmen who can take the game away from them. It’s very important to soak together good partnerships as a bowling group then try and knock them over. You won’t blow oppositions away. It might happen once in a while but you have to get your noses ahead and keep it ahead,” Ashwin stated.The Tamil Nadu bowler was happy with his performance with the ball in the warm-up game against Cricket Australia XI as the hosts ended the third day on 356/6, trailing Virat Kohli’s side by two runs.

Ruiz stunned Joshua – who was a 1-25 favourite with bookmakers – at New York’s Madison Square Garden on 1 June.In doing so, he walked away with the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles, becoming Mexico’s first world champion in the division.Joshua, 29, took up his right to a rematch and promoter Hearn has repeatedly pointed to Ruiz being signed to fight as a result of the fact a rematch clause was part of the first fight’s contract.Hearn has said Joshua’s team contractually only need to let Ruiz “know the time, date and venue” and says the champion could face legal proceedings if the fight does not happen.Organisers in Saudi Arabia have put forward a reported fee of $40m (£33m) to host the event but there has been criticism of taking a fight of such magnitude there given the country’s human rights record.Human rights organisation Amnesty International has said the move provides “opportunity for the Saudi authorities to try to ‘sportswash’ their severely tarnished image”.Ruiz is again a bookmakers’ underdog for the repeat fixture but since his shock seventh-round stoppage win has stated Joshua is “not good at boxing”.Asked on Wednesday about facing Joshua again, he said: “I think he will want to run a little longer, move, but he is too big, he has many muscles and it will be very difficult for him.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Insists on fight taking place in New YorkUnified world heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr has said that he has not signed to fight Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia and hopes their rematch is in New York.A 7 December rematch in Saudi Arabia was announced on Friday and Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn told a a news conference on Monday it was signed.Ruiz did not speak or post about the bout on social media until Wednesday.The 29-year-old told ESPN in Mexico: “I have not signed anything yet, we are negotiating everything.”Asked about a Saudi Arabia contest he said: “They want to do it there but we have to see where we negotiate with my team.
