Got Your 6 Unveils First Round Of 6 Certified Projects

first_imgGot Your 6 today unveiled the first round of “6 Certified” projects, part of a continuing effort to recognize content that accurately and responsibly portrays veterans in popular media.The feature films “American Sniper” and “Amira and Sam” and individual episodes or seasons of the television series “Dancing with the Stars,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “Modern Family” and “The Night Shift” are now “6 Certified.”Earlier this year at an event featuring First Lady Michelle Obama, Got Your 6 launched the “6 Certified” initiative as a way to challenge industry executives and content creators to craft more thoughtful narratives around veterans and military families.“Through ‘6 Certified’ we can battle the stereotypes and misconceptions about veterans that so often dominate popular culture, while drawing attention to projects that portray veterans reasonably and accurately,” said Chris Marvin, executive director of Got Your 6. “Each of the selected projects helps to craft a new cultural narrative with an asset-focused view of veterans.”Got Your 6 announced today the selection of the following projects – the first ever group to be awarded “6 Certified” status:“American Sniper” – A compelling look into the life of veteran Chris Kyle, “American Sniper” digs beyond Kyle’s record-breaking military career to present a fully realized and multidimensional veteran character, who is portrayed as both a family man and community volunteer. Warner Bros. Pictures“Amira and Sam” – A cross-cultural love story about an Army veteran whose unlikely romance with an Iraqi immigrant is put to the test when she is faced with deportation. “Amira and Sam” bridges a great divide to foster understanding between cultures – and features a lead character who translates his operational training into a positive civilian role back at home. Drafthouse Films“Dancing with the Stars” (Season 20) – The inclusion of contestant Noah Galloway, an Army veteran and double amputee who appeared on the recent 20th season of “Dancing with the Stars,” counters stereotypical portrayals of veterans as “charity cases.” Noah’s own motto, “No Excuses,” embodies the resilient qualities of many veterans who have been faced with loss. ABC“Hawaii Five-0” (Episode 18, Season 5) – This exciting police procedural portrays veterans as leaders and problem solvers. The lead character Steven “Steve” J. McGarrett was a Navy SEAL and uses his operational training to aid him in his work as a civilian. CBS“Modern Family” (Episode 22, Season 6) – This television program provides a balanced depiction of veterans through Ed O’Neill’s character Jay Pritchett, who served in the Navy. The character’s time in service does not define him but merely adds another level of depth and color to the characterization. ABC“The Night Shift” (Episode 12, Season 2) – Veteran characters on “The Night Shift” use skills they learned in the military to save lives on the show. “The Night Shift” creators collaborated with First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden for a recent episode that explored post-traumatic growth and resilience among veterans. NBCThe “6 Certified” program was enacted to encourage film and television creators to challenge misconceptions about veterans in popular culture and to foster a better understanding between veterans and civilians by moving away from the negative and stereotypical depictions of veterans and military families.For a project to become “6 Certified” it must contain a representative and balanced depiction of veterans and fulfill at least one of the following pledges:DO YOUR HOMEWORK 
Research or consult with real veterans, family members, or subject matter experts in an effort to create accurate representationsCAST A VETERAN 
Hire a veteran actor to play a substantial roleHIRE A VETERAN WRITER 
Employ a veteran writer to contribute to the narrativePORTRAY A VETERAN CHARACTER 
Develop a multi-dimensional veteran characterTELL A VETERAN STORY 
Develop a narrative with meaningful and accurate veteran themesUSE VETERANS AS RESOURCES ON SET OR IN WRITERS’ ROOMS 
Have veterans present for consultation throughout the filmmaking processA project that meets “6 Certified” eligibility requirements may be submitted by a studio or production company for consideration by the “6 Certified” Review Committee once that project enters post-production. The Review Committee is a group of subject matter experts who meet to review submissions for certification and grant “6 Certified” status. Currently, the members of the “6 Certified” Review Committee are Rajiv Chandrasekaran, journalist and author; Bruce Cohen, producer of “American Beauty” and “Silver Linings Playbook”; Greg Silverman, president, creative development and worldwide production, Warner Bros. Pictures; Charlie Ebersol, president and CEO of The Company; Chris Marvin, executive director, Got Your 6; Laura Law-Millet, Army veteran and Chief Operations Officer at the GI Film Group; and Major General (Ret) Sharon K.G. Dunbar, vice president, human resources, General Dynamics Mission Systems. Additional information on certification is available here.The “6 Certified” program is operated by Got Your 6, a campaign to shift the public perception of America’s veterans and to empower returning service members to be leaders and civic assets. The campaign is named for the military term meaning “I’ve got your back” and was launched in 2012 in response to a call-to-action by First Lady Michelle Obama and her Joining Forces initiative.last_img read more

Lanka softens stance on Chinabacked port project

The port city project is funded by China Communications Construction Co Ltd (CCCC) and locally handled by CHEC Port City Colombo (Pvt) Ltd. “Freehold will certainly be changed into a mutually holding type of a situation, so that there is no person that will control land in another country,” he said. “You don’t need to have a company holding national lands for perpetuity.”Since coming to power at the start of the year, the Sirisena administration has suspended most foreign-backed infrastructure projects that, it says, were overpriced and financed on onerous terms harmful to Sri Lanka’s national interests.Work on two Chinese-funded highway projects has started recently without major changes, a signal that Sirisena’s government would, if re-elected, seek to revive other schemes as long as a compromise can be reached on cost. The project, emblematic of China’s strategy of developing a maritime Silk Road from Asia to Europe, has alarmed Sri Lanka’s larger neighbour India which sees it as a threat in its backyard and has been sympathetic to Sirisena’s reformist rule. Sri Lanka is offering a compromise that could allow a major Chinese-backed real estate project to restart after months of delays, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake told Reuters.The minister’s comments come a week before a parliamentary election in which the ruling party has an edge over an Opposition led by Mahinda Rajapaksa. The China-friendly ex-president, who was ousted in January, is attempting a comeback. One stumbling block has been the planned acquisition by Chinese developers of 20 hectares of freehold land for the waterfront project, which lies a stone’s throw from the business district of Sri Lanka’s largest city.Karunanayake said the government was in the process of renegotiating the deal that would, if it wins the election, “help bring in a final understanding that will help bring a win-win situation”. The project to build apartments, shopping malls, a water sports area, a golf course, hotels and marinas is now a fenced-off tract of boulders dumped by what used to be a sandy beach. When work was suspended, CCCC estimated the shutdown would cause losses of more than $3,80,000 a day.The project would give the Chinese company 108 hectares of land in the form of payment, 20 hectares of it outright and the rest on a 99-year lease. The $1.4 billion Colombo port city project was suspended by President Maithripala Sirisena’s new government in March because it was found not to have the proper permits and approvals. read more

Negotiations continue with Mongolia for development of Oyu Tolgoi project

first_imgJohn Macken, President and CEO of Ivanhoe Mines, and Bret Clayton, Rio Tinto’s Chief Executive, Copper & Diamonds, said today that they were looking forward to engaging in negotiations with the Mongolian Government to conclude an Investment Agreement for the development of the Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold project in Mongolia’s South Gobi Region. The Mongolian Parliament has established a new, all-party working group of members of parliament that is to report on proposed changes to the country’s Minerals Law by November 15. The government wants an updated Minerals Law in effect as a necessary step before a resumption of discussions on an Investment Agreement for Oyu Tolgoi.“We are encouraged by the initial steps that have been taken by the new Mongolian government and by the communications that we have had with government representatives,” said Clayton, who also is a Director of Ivanhoe Mines. “We are looking forward to engaging with the government as soon as possible to complete a competitive Investment Agreement that recognises the realities of the current international investment environment.”Macken said Ivanhoe Mines and its strategic partner, Rio Tinto, had negotiated an Investment Agreement with a Mongolian Government working group in May of last year and were confident that the agreement could be appropriately updated to address the current interests of the investors and the people of Mongolia to enable construction of the project to proceed. He also said that Ivanhoe Mines remained in a strong financial position and with significant assets, which include approximately $US 450 million, on a consolidated basis at September 30, and a controlling stake in SouthGobi Energy Resources, which now is selling coal from its new Ovoot Tolgoi mine in southern Mongolia to customers in China.As noted in a statement issued September 30, senior management of Ivanhoe Mines and Rio Tinto met with key Mongolian government representatives in September to discuss the necessary remaining steps for the negotiation and ultimate parliamentary approval of a fair and equitable Investment Agreement for the Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold project. Government leaders have stated that they share the investors’ high priority for the conclusion of an acceptable agreement as soon as possible.last_img read more

Leading methane drainage technology in China

first_imgIndustrea has signed a contract with Shanxi Asian American Daning Energy Co. (SAADEC) worth A$2 million. SAADEC is acquiring additional underground directional drilling equipment supplied by Industrea subsidiary Wadam Industries for Daning Coal Mine, Shanxi Province. SAADEC is now the longest user of Australian-built underground directional drilling equipment and the Daning mine is using Industrea’s Advanced Mining Technologies Drilling Guidance System (AMT DGS) methane gas drainage equipment, which has become the industry standard in China in boosting mine safety.Industrea Managing Director and CEO, Robin Levison, said the contract win was the fourth sale over the past six years to SAADEC demonstrating the company’s strong reputation and market leadership in the expanding Chinese underground coal industry. “SAADEC was the first user of this technology, and their confidence in its capacity to boost mining safety and productivity is demonstrated by this new order,” Levison said.“Many other Chinese coal miners have visited the mine over the past six years to see first-hand the benefits of this equipment, leading to continued orders from across the country for the drilling systems.” Levison said the mine had also demonstrated the effectiveness of Industrea’s methane gas drainage equipment, with the AMT DGS system now having become the industry standard in China.“The Daning mine has been a role model for other Chinese coal mines in successfully removing very high methane gas content from its coal seam, and the effective drainage of this potentially dangerous gas has had an enormous benefit in improving mine safety. The Chinese Government’s new tax on coal to fund the purchase of safety equipment shows their determination to improve standards. Industrea is very proud to be able to make a key contribution, given the rapid growth of the Chinese underground coal industry and the safety threat posed by methane gas.”Located near Jincheng, approximately 580 km southwest of Beijing, the Daning mine is unique as the first foreign-invested coal mining joint venture in the history of the People’s Republic of China. Asian American Coal (AACI) holds a 56% equity stake in the joint venture and operates the mine using the latest in international equipment and technology to maximise safety, production and efficiency.In 2007, the mine produced over 3 Mt of coal, with a long-term plan to produce an average of 6 Mt/y of coal.last_img read more

Diablo 3 update results in massive economy crash

first_imgIf you were thinking about picking Diablo 3 back up after their latest patch, you may want to wait until they patch the patch. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself surrounded by people with piles of gold they didn’t earn.The latest update to Diablo 3 is one of the largest to the game so far, which is necessary not only for existing players but to get the game itself ready for the inevitable PS3/PS4 launch. It introduces tweaks to the single player and multi-player aspects of the game, and was expected to be fairly well received. In fact, it should have been enough to remind people that they own a copy of Diablo 3 and encourage them to journey once more into the Burning Hells.Unfortunately, one of the tweaks made to the Auction House caused a new glitch that doubles the gold of anyone who changes their mind in the middle of a transaction. If you sell some of your gold on the Real Money Auction House, and then cancel before any transaction is complete, you’ll find that double the amount of gold you had intended to sell is now in your account. This was confirmed from multiple sources, including a live stream where one user clearly demonstrates the glitch taking place. It’s probably a pretty bad idea to try this yourself, but it is a very real issue.There’s a lot of speculation regarding how exactly Blizzard will fix this. Rolling back the servers to the previous version and reversing these transactions seems like the most logical course of action, but in doing so you’re also inconveniencing legitimate players who have been conducting legitimate transactions to adjust their builds to better fit the tweaks in the update. Since this issue clearly affects both auction houses, it’s something Blizzard will need to handle quickly.Now Read – Blizzard confirms no cross platform play for Diablo 3 on PS4last_img read more

(Photo by Skip Gray/Gavel Alaska)Download AudioLaw-makers have approved a contract for a global consulting firm to examine whether lawmakers should move offices out of the controversial Legislative Information Office in downtown Anchorage.LIO Navigant Contract and Engagement letterAccording to a contract signed Monday, the Legislative Council has decided to pay San Francisco-based Navigant Consulting up to $35,000 for a financial analysis to be completed by March 14th. That figure does not include reimbursements if consultants travel to Alaska. Rates for members of the project team are between $250-$550 an hour.The purpose of the financial analysis is determining the cost of three different options for legislators to weigh in on: Paying out the current 10 year lease structure to the building’s owners, buying the building out-right, or abandoning the lease agreement and moving offices to the state-owned Atwood Building.Owners of the property have offered to sell the building for $37 million, which would save the state money in the long-term. An analysis by the Legislative Affairs Agency found fault with the data supporting those claims, leading the council to opt for an independent analysis.last_img read more

49 Voices Demry Mebane of Anchorage

first_imgDemry Mebane of Anchorage (Photo by Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)This week we’re hearing from Demry Mebane in Anchorage. Mebane moved up here four years ago from Texas and just started his last year at UAA, after which he plans on attending law school.Listen nowMEBANE: Whether you look at my role in Model United Nations, as the ombudsman in student government, or even the job that I have right now in the Emerging Leaders program, these opportunities would not be available for me at a bigger university or in a bigger city. And if they were available, I’d have to definitely fight tooth and nail to get that position. I’m also studying for my LSATs. I just finished up an internship with the mayor’s office, I’ve stayed quite busy while I’ve been here.I don’t see myself just staying in one occupation. I think that ultimately, the main principle behind my life will to be give. And that’ll mean to give as much as possible.My internship with the mayor’s office was actually through Americorps. Each student got set up with a different department. I was lucky enough to get hooked up with the police department here in town, and I was responsible for getting research from different people that lived within Fairview, Mountain View and Spenard to see how police could police better in those areas.I worked with another student — Sevi Sheppard — who was in the Justice program. Talking to those residents within Fairview about their issues that they weren’t able to vice prior to Sevi and I knocking on their door felt great. Because these people had had issues that they felt as though their municipality didn’t care. I think being able to articulate your problems is step one. And hopefully step two comes from the mayor’s office and comes from the police department frlm the data we gave.I came up here for a What If. A perhaps. I kinda came up here slightly on a whim. And I’d say that decision has shaped my life for the better. And this decision and this move up to Alaska was completely necessary. So one word would be necessary. Multiple words would be: I would do it again and again.last_img read more

Sensex extends losses for second straight session

first_imgDomestic stock markets ended in losses for the second consecutive session on Tuesday amid a cautious sentiment ahead of expiry of contracts in the futures and options (F&O) segment for the month of November.While the BSE S&P Sensex fell 43 points to end at 25,775 points, the 50-share Nifty closed at 7,831, down 17 points.Investors also remain in wait-and-see mode ahead of the winter session of Parliament, which is scheduled to start this week and chances of the passage of key economic reforms in the session do not appear bright. In the monsoon session of Parliament, the Modi government was forced to delay the landmark Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, after facing strong opposition in the Rajya Sabha, where it does not have a majority.Doubts over the passage of the key tax bill in the upcoming session have arisen in the wake of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led alliance’s defeat in the recently-concluded assembly elections in Bihar that has emboldened the opposition parties.The Modi government has the required number of votes to pass the GST Bill in the Rajya Sabha, finance minister Arun Jaitley had said last week.The benchmark indices also ended lower due to weakness in global markets. While China’s Shanghai Composite index closed 1.2% lower and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index was down 1.6%.Among the BSE sectoral indices, Realty, Energy and Telecom were the top gainers, while Capital Goods, Auto and IT were the biggest losers.”It was yet another day of minor losses for the Indian equity markets on Tuesday. Participants preferred to remain on the sidelines ahead of the mid-week holiday on Wednesday and F&O expiry on Thursday. The market was quite choppy throughout the day and was unable to carry the momentum on either direction,” said Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL.”The capital goods, IT and auto stocks were among the major laggards. On the other hand, realty, energy, telecom and the oil & gas stocks were among the major gainers. The mid-cap and the small-cap stocks continued to remain in demand,” he added. Markets will remain closed on Wednesday on account of Guru Nanak Jayanti.On the commodity front, gold prices rebounded by Rs 90 to end at Rs 25,740 per 10 grams, while silver prices rose sharply by Rs 350 to close at Rs 34,150 per kg.last_img read more

Airbus Group may forge some aircraft parts in India

first_imgAircraft maker Airbus Group is in talks with Indian companies such as Mahindra & Mahindra and Bharat Forge to get some of its aircraft parts forged in India. The move is an attempt by the company to expand its supplier base and outsourcing activity in India. Airbus said the move is in line with the company’s plans having multiple stages of integration, which means India should participate at all levels of the aircraft manufacturing process. The company’s sourcing from India is expected to grow to $2 billion (Rs 13,600 crore) in the next five years, the Economic Times reports.”So far, we have looked at aero structures and systems for aircraft in India. Now we are looking at every forging,” Srinivasan Dwarkanath, president, Airbus division, was quoted as saying by the publication.According to Dwarkanath, Airbus is also in talks with the government to look for other ways to use raw materials with an option of recycling it. He also said that in America and Europe, the company recycles the raw materials, which increases its chances of competitiveness, the ET report added.The Indian forging industry is currently valued at Rs 28,000 crore. Contribution to the aerospace industry would open new avenues. At present 61 percent of the industry’s output goes into the automotive sector, according to the estimates of the Indian Forging Industry.In a Press Trust of India report published five days ago, Airbus said India (one of the fastest growing aviation markets) would require 1,600 aircraft valued at $224 billion in the course of the next 20 years. Stocks of Bharat Forge rose almost two percent on the BSE Tuesday, however, later shed gains and traded at Rs 879 at around 1.12 pm, up 0.49 percent.Mahindra and Mahindra shares were trading at Rs 1256 apiece, up 2.36 percent from the previous close.last_img read more

Resident Evil 7s Mature rating confirms chainsaws shotguns and flamet

first_img <> Resident Evil 7 is taking a drastic departure from previous titles. Instead of being a balls-to-the-wall action game, it is heavily leaning on the survival horror aspects that originally made the franchise so popular. All of the trailers we’ve seen so far suggest a game that will have players trying to hide from enemies. However, according to Resident Evil 7‘s official rating’s summary, the upcoming Capcom title won’t leave players completely helpless.“From a first-person perspective, players explore the environment and use pistols, shotguns, flamethrowers, explosives and chainsaws to kill mutant creatures,” reads the summary. It also says: “Combat is accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and exaggerated blood-splatter effects.” Though the game will likely limit your access to these weapons in order to stay as horror-centric as possible, we now know for a fact that players will at least be able to fight back and defend themselves in some capacity.The ratings summary also states that you will play as a man named Ethan who is searching for his wife inside of a mansion. Even though Ethan will be the main character of the game, players will be able to take on the roles of other people. This is done by discovering video tapes scattered throughout the residence. It should also be noted that the game taking place inside of a mansion is an overt homage to the very first Resident Evil.From what we’ve seen of this game, Resident Evil 7 is shaping up to be one of the scariest games in the franchise. Knowing that we can fight back with stronger weapons than a two-by-four brings some small comfort for those (like me) who may find this game to be a bit too scary.Resident Evil 7 will be released for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 24, 2017.last_img read more

first_img Top Stories The Arizona Cardinals have had much success against the St. Louis Rams since 2007, going 12-4 against their NFC West division rival since the start of that season and sporting a 3-1 mark under head coach Bruce Arians.Twice, they have earned victories against the Rams to clinch playoff berths during that span, with the first being in 2008 and the other coming in last season’s 12-6 win over the Rams in December. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, left, catches a 4-yard pass for a touchdown as St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins defends during the second quarter of an NFL football game on Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013, in St. Louis. (AP Photo/L.G. Patterson) Arizona has clearly had the Rams number in recent years and that has led to much individual success from players like Larry Fitzgerald and Patrick Peterson.Fitzgerald has individual highs across the board against the Rams, totaling the most receptions (138), touchdowns (16) and team wins (15) against St. Louis than any other opponent. In fact, Fitzgerald’s 16 touchdown catches are more than any active player has against a single team during the regular season.Also, the first of the eight-time Pro Bowler’s 932 catches also came against the Rams on the first snap of the wideout’s career. Fitzgerald hauled in a 37-yard pass from Josh McCown on a flea flicker.Not to be outdone is Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who has also had some memorable moments and strong numbers against the Rams.In eight career games against against the Cardinals division opponent, Peterson has six interceptions and three touchdowns, including a 99-yard punt return to win a game in overtime during his rookie season. Last season alone saw Peterson record three picks and a touchdown against St. Louis.The four-time Pro Bowler has also recorded 361 career punt return yards, which is more than double that of his next highest amount against an individual team.

Coop workers start pondering voluntary retirement scheme

first_imgCo-op workers now have two weeks to decide whether to accept the voluntary retirement scheme negotiated by the bank with unions, a union leader said on Wednesday.The scheme, which provides for compensations of up to €180,000 depending on a worker’s earnings and years of service, will allow 900 of its almost 2,700 workers to leave the bank before Hellenic Bank acquires the operations of the Cyprus Cooperative Bank as part of an agreement struck in June.“Following the shareholders’ decision to approve the scheme, we are expecting the bank to start informing staffers,” said Savvas Toulouppos, a representative of PEO, one of the unions that negotiated the scheme.The government which earmarked €128m for the scheme is owner of 99 per cent of the Co-op, which became a casualty of its failure to reduce its bad loans fast enough. In 2014 and 2015, it provided almost €1.7bn in two successive capital injections to the bank. On Tuesday, the Co-op’s shareholders accepted the scheme negotiated with the unions.Toulouppos added that that the union, which has started briefing the staff, still has no indication whether staff members are interested in applyingt.“We let them know about their rights so that they can have a better picture of the situation,” he said, adding that it will be up to each worker to decide what to do.According to the terms of the agreement between the Cyprus Cooperative Bank and Hellenic Bank, the latter will continue employing Co-op 1,100 workers while the residual Co-op, which will manage the bank’s €7bn in non-performing loans, will continue employing 500 workers.Touloupos added that the workers are asking questions related to their future with Hellenic Bank and the body that will manage non-performing loans after the Co-op goes out of business.“There are various questions which don’t allow coming to conclusions on whether the staff is interested in the scheme,” he said.Etyk, the bank workers’ union, has already criticised the scheme, including the government for not being forthcoming as well as PEO, SEK and Pasydy for breaking ranks by not insisting on a minimum compensation of €100,000.“After asking for 100 and accepting 10, this reveals the magnitude of the theatrical performance that was given,” Etyk said, adding that while it represented 55 per cent of the Co-op workers, and the other three unions 45 per cent, the government entered an agreement with the latter.Touloupos said that “the scheme is on a voluntary basis and it is up to the people to decide for themselves.
