23 of 25 Hospitals Offering Full Services

first_imgMost of the island’s 25 hospitals have resumed full services, following the passage of Hurricane Sandy on October 24. This was disclosed by Director of Emergency Disaster Management and Special Services in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Marion Bullock Ducasse, during an interview with JIS News, today (October  26), at the Bustamante Children’s Hospital, in Kingston. “All but two of our hospitals are now offering full services. The  Annotto Bay Hospital (in St. Mary), unfortunately, lost a section of the roof and therefore they are now only still seeing emergency cases. At the Port Antonio Hospital (in Portland), they are actually seeing emergency cases and doing outpatient clinics, but they are not offering elective services. So, we therefore have the other 23 hospitals that are offering full services now,” she said. She informed that “as of today, all of the Ministry of Health facilities continue to offer services, though at varying levels.” Dr. Bullock Ducasse further informed that at the Port Antonio Hospital, full service offerings should be resumed by next week. However,  she was unable to give a specific timeline regarding the Antonno Bay Hospital, “because of the extent of the damage.” Damage sustained at the Antonno Bay Hospital include: the loss of roof to sections of the hospital, including the male and female wards as well as to the accident and emergency, and paediatric wards. She is anticipating that the facility will be repaired within two weeks, “to the extent that we can move patients back into those wards and use those areas again.”                                                                                                            Dr. Bullock Ducasse said that while emergency services are being offered, members of the public are being encouraged to use the other facilities nearby, such as the Port Maria Hospital and the St. Ann’s Bay Hospital. She also pointed out that staff turnout at the hospitals has improved, and that most persons were able to access the health facilities today. Regarding the island’s health centres, Dr.  Bullock Ducasse informed that in the Western Region (Trelawny, St. James, Hanover and Westmoreland),  all the health centres are operational from today; and the same obtains for the Southern Region, comprising  Clarendon, Manchester and St. Elizabeth. She informed that for the South East Region, a few of the health centres “are not operational” in Kingston and St. Andrew; and in St. Catherine, the St. Jago Park Health Centre lost a section of the roof. “The main challenges that were being experienced today,  are in the worst affected parishes  –  St. Thomas, Portland, and St. Mary,” she said. In the meantime, she said that all the relevant sectors and stakeholders are working assiduously to restore normal services.last_img read more

Federer ready for Isner shootout for Miami crown

first_imgMiami: Roger Federer is gearing up for a Miami Open final shootout with John Isner on Sunday after blowing away young-gun Denis Shapovalov in straight sets. Federer produced a 6-2, 6-4 masterclass at Hard Rock Stadium to leave up-and-coming star Shapovalov, who grew up idolizing the Swiss, chasing shadows during a difficult first set. The Swiss was superb in dismantling the 19 year-old’s game, but knows with huge serving Isner lying in wait in what will be the former world number one’s 50th ATP Masters final, the key will be to defuse the reigning Miami Open champion’s monster service game. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh Isner used it to great effect in his 7-6 (7/3), 7-6 (7/4) win over Shapovalov’s friend and compatriot Felix Auger-Aliassime earlier in the day, smashing down 21 aces. He’ll be looking for more of the same against 20 time Grand Slam champion Federer. “Playing a big server like John is like being in a penalty shootout in soccer, but I enjoy it,” said number four seed Federer who coped brilliantly with Kevin Anderson’s dangerous serve in the quarter-finals, winning the first set to love. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later “Sometimes you go with momentum. Sometimes you go with feel. Sometimes you guess maybe a little bit and sometimes you see it. It’s a combination of all sort of things. “You just hope that the stars align, that you pick the right side, that he picks the wrong side, that maybe he misses a serve, that you can put him in uncomfortable situations time and time again, and at the end somehow you find a way.” Federer had no such challenge from Shapovalov, playing his fifth ATP Tour semi-final. Even though the Swiss was standing in his way of a first final, the 19 year-old stressed beforehand that it was a “dream” to take on Federer. It quickly, however, turned into a nightmare. The Canadian displayed understandable nerves early on, a struggle with his first serve proving as much in a 10 minute opening game which he eventually won. Yet it didn’t settle him down and when another horribly loose backhand flew long, Federer pocketed a vital early break and stayed in the driver’s seat. Shapovalov, who will jump to a career best 20th in the world thanks to this impressive run, enjoyed some much better moments in the second set and looked more relaxed, although the match was never in his hands. He hit just eight winners in response to Federer’s 30 but will learn from this. “It’s kind of surreal, being on the court against Roger,”admitted the Canadian who joked the only enjoyable moment for him was the warm up. “Obviously I wasn’t trying to focus on the fact that it’s him on the other side. “I was just trying to play as good as I can, but he played an excellent match. I wasn’t able stay at his level. I’m just going to try to learn from this and move forward.” Federer, assessing his own performance, said he played “very well”. “I had to because when you let Denis play, he’s got some serious power and he gets rhythm going. He can really put you in uncomfortable situations.” This was the first time since 2007 that two teenagers have reached an ATP Masters semi-finals and although both suffered disappointing defeats, they leave South Florida with their heads held high. Auger-Aliassime’s dream run finished with the youngster from Montreal competing confidently in the biggest match of his career even if he will rue the chances that escaped him after being broken while serving for the first and second set. “Unusual,” Isner called it. “It could have been a little bit of inexperience and maybe a little bit of fatigue, also.” Despite the disappointment etched all over Auger-Aliassime’s face at the end, his run here will give him great confidence moving forward as he, and Shapovalov, aim to prove their Grand Slam credentials. The 18-year-old is the youngest-ever male semi-finalist in Miami and only the second qualifier to reach the last four after Guillermo Canas reached the same stage in 2007 before losing to Novak Djokovic in the final. Auger-Aliassime will also see his ranking jump from 55 to 33 in the world. “I think I did the best that I could,” he said. “It’s a chance you can’t miss, serving two times for the set, and just — I don’t know. It’s just terrible. The biggest lesson I learned was to stay in the present and believe in yourself.”last_img read more

How The LastPlace Bulls Became The Hottest Team In The East

CHICAGO — After the Bulls sparked controversy in June by trading their franchise star to launch a rebuild, the team’s floor — already below sea level — just kept dropping.In October, only days before the team’s season-opener, forwards Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic clashed during practice, with Mirotic suffering a concussion and fractured bones in his face. In November, the Warriors thrashed Chicago by 49 points — without All-Stars Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. Then earlier this month, things seemed to hit a new low. The Bulls, owners of a league-worst 3-20 mark, dropped a 10th-straight game, blowing a 16-point fourth-period lead to the Pacers.Fast forward two weeks, and that same ragtag collection of players who couldn’t buy a win in November is suddenly and mysteriously unbeatable. The Bulls, after blowing out Orlando on Wednesday, are winners of seven straight and own the East’s longest win streak. Only Golden State — 10 in a row — has more. If that seems bizarre … you’re right: Before this, no team in NBA history had ever lost 10 consecutive games (or more) and then rebounded with an immediate win streak of five games or more. Before this Bulls streak, FiveThirtyEight’s NBA projection system1Which, to be fair, doesn’t account for injuries like Mirotic’s. would have given Chicago just a 0.03 percent chance — 3 in 10,000 — of sweeping the seven games it’s won.The turnaround raises two questions for this young club: What, exactly, has changed in such a short amount of time? And are the Bulls at risk of jeopardizing their rebuild and a chance at a good lottery pick by winning too much? The Sixers Still Have Growing Pains To Work Out Related: The Lab Mirotic’s return is the easiest thing to connect to the Bulls’ streak, considering that it began with his first game back. He’s playing unsustainably well — it’s almost impossible to imagine his continuing to be the NBA’s most efficient high-volume post player while shooting 49 percent from the 3-point line. And he’s averaging 35.8 points and 14.1 rebounds per 100 possessions, which puts him among a handful of superstars in the league posting at least 35 and 10.Part of this is opportunity. Mirotic comes off the bench2When Lauri Markkanen is healthy enough to play. but is clearly the No. 1 option when he’s on the floor. That’s a change from the past, when he had to defer to Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade or Derrick Rose. But to his credit, Mirotic has made one key change in his game: The 6-foot-10 forward has been more decisive with the ball than in years past. In particular, he has largely shelved a pump fake that often seemed to do the opposite of its intended purpose.According to an analysis published in 2015 by Vantage Sports, Mirotic fired off a shot attempt after using a pump fake more than anyone in the league during the 2014-15 season, yet logged the worst field-goal percentage on those shots among the league’s most frequent pump fakers.3If you broaden the sample by one more year, Mirotic was even worse. He shot just 22 percent from the field after pump fakes over the two-season stretch covering 2014-15 and 2015-16, the worst in the league among players who attempted at least 100 shots after pump fakes in that window. (Unlike Stephen Curry or JJ Redick, who pump-fake their way into cleaner looks by using a side dribble, Mirotic often stood fully stationary and faked his way into a worse shot, which gave defenders extra time to close out on him even further. You can see the difference in the clips below — the first shows a failed pump fake from 2014 and the second, from Wednesday’s game, shows Mirotic shoot in rhythm without any hesitation.)Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/miroticpumpfake.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/miroticquick.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Pointing solely at Mirotic’s impact would be oversimplifying the genesis of the streak, though. Kris Dunn — acquired in the Butler trade after posting the league’s worst true-shooting percentage among regulars4Who played 15 minutes per night and in at least 65 games. last season — has settled in nicely as the starting point guard after an initial rough patch. He has been getting to the basket regularly — ranking fourth in the NBA during the Bulls’ win streak, with almost 18 drives per game — and finishing more consistently once he gets there.Quietly, backup shooting guard David Nwaba — who also recently returned after being injured — might be having the strongest influence on the team’s winning. He aggressively pushes the ball in transition, arguably one of the bigger shifts in Chicago’s identity. The Bulls have ranked second in pace during this streak, up from 23rd before it. The 24-year-old generates nearly 32 percent of his offense from transition opportunities, the highest rate in the NBA5Among players who’ve checked into at least 15 games and gotten at least two transition possessions per game. and has scored on an impressive 65 percent of those chances. That and his energy on defense explain Nwaba’s presence in eight of the Bulls’ nine most efficient two-man lineups6With at least 100 minutes played. up to this point.“It’s a lot easier for our team to score in transition instead of having to break down a set defense that’s already set up, so I like to run when I can,” said Nwaba, who is on pace to become the first 6-foot-4 or shorter player7Who has played at least 15 games and 20 minutes per contest. in 30 years to shoot 55 percent or better from the field. That mindset is particularly valuable to a points-starved Bulls team that, even after reeling off seven victories in a row, is essentially tied for last in the league in offensive efficiency.These two plays — in which Nwaba catches opposing players off guard by taking an extra dribble or two into the teeth of the transition defense — are typical of how he generates scores for Chicago.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/nwaba.mp400:0000:0000:19Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/extradribble.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The defensive improvement has been noteworthy as of late, too, especially since the Bulls have begun playing lineups with four defenders who can all switch their assignments and having their rim protector play pick-and-rolls less aggressively.But no one — well, except maybe Bulls forward Denzel Valentine — expects Chicago to continue playing at this level. (Tonight, the 10-20 Bulls take on LeBron James and the Cavs, who dominated them in a game just before this streak began.) It’s highly unlikely that the Bulls will maintain their Warriors- or Rockets-like shooting from midrange or that opposing teams will continue bricking wide-open threes against them in late-game scenarios.A quick look at the replies under this tweet (highlighting the Bulls’ streak) shows that Chicago fans are worrying about how this stretch of good basketball could hurt the team’s odds of landing a top lottery pick, a concern that still seems a bit premature considering everything that could take place between now and the end of the season.As good as Mirotic has looked, he has had to split playing time with Lauri Markkanen, the team’s promising first-round draft pick.8Also acquired in the Butler deal, although the Bulls traded their own pick to Minnesota as part of the deal. If Mirotic keeps playing anywhere near this level, the Chicago front office would have a nice asset once his contract becomes tradable9On Jan. 15. — a move that would free up more opportunity for Markkanen, who’s far younger and more athletic than Mirotic and has a similar skill set.Beyond that, Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg told me and other reporters Wednesday that Zach LaVine is only two or three weeks away from seeing game action after tearing his ACL last season. His presence in the lineup will alter things considerably, for better or worse, as he knocks off the rust.All of this is simply another way of saying: Yes, the Bulls have been on a historic run the past couple of weeks, but they still have a fair number of flaws to work through. And for those worried about what the win streak means for tanking purposes, the educated guess here is that they’ll still lose plenty of games along the way to stay firmly in the lottery conversation.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

Avengers Endgame and every MCU movie ranked

first_img When the credits ran I sank back in my chair in complete awe of what I’d just experienced. Hours later, I’m still reeling. Everything works here.

Best moment: I won’t spoil it here, of course, but the best moment in this film is something I’d been waiting to see since these movies started to connect.

Best moment: Hulk clapping his hands together with such force he essentially snuffs out an explosion that had started only a split second before. Thor (now) Marvel Studios 21. Thor Thor does a good job establishing the Norse god as a being that could exist in the same world as Iron Man. “Your ancestors called it magic and you call it science,” Thor says. “Where I come from, they are one and the same.” Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston turn in star-making performances. But the love story with Jane Foster and some of the sitcom-like humor (which doesn’t hold up well all these years later) keep this film from being truly great. Still, the Shakespearean family dynamic (especially between the two leads) and Anthony Hopkins as Odin hold it together long enough to make for an entertaining film with a surprising turn or two toward the end. It’s a classic redemption tale told well that never takes itself too seriously, but brings in enough weight to make most of the relationships believable.

It failed to make the relationship between Bruce Banner and Betty Ross worth caring about and was devoid of much of the humor the MCU is now known for. It feels like a movie that was at first made independent of the MCU and then had MCU ties grafted onto it. Now playing: Watch this:center_img The film takes some far-fetched leaps of logic (the solution to the arc reactor problem comes off as kind of silly) and many of the narrative decisions don’t come from character motivations, but instead feel like they’re shoehorned in to fit where the filmmakers wanted the movie to end. Still, the performances are great across the board and the action is entertaining. I’m just glad Marvel was able to learn from a lot of the mistakes it made in these early days. Best moment: Iron Man and War Machine teaming up to destroy a bunch of robots. Simple, effective and fun. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)thor-the-dark-world Marvel Studios 19. Thor: The Dark World The biggest problem with The Dark World is that it services Loki better than it does Thor. As a result, Thor, is one of the movie’s least interesting characters. He’s trumped only by Malekith — Marvel’s dullest villain ever — in his inability to make the audience care about his needs and wants. Still, Tom Hiddleston is completely dialed in here as Loki and is easily the most engaging character of the bunch. The production design is great and the Asgardian world building is cool. There are also some awesome and inventive action sequences. It’s just too bad that Thor the character gets lost along the way. Thankfully, that all changed with Ragnarok. Best moment: In his battle with Malekith, Thor is teleported from Earth to an entirely different planet without his trusty hammer, Mjolnir. The weapon (which always comes to him when he beckons it) beelines it out of Earth’s atmosphere on a course to meet the mighty Asgardian light-years away. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features) 18. Captain America: The First Avenger This was the first MCU film to get the love story right (before Marvel realized it didn’t need a love story in each movie). The mutual respect and adoration between Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter that organically grew as the story progressed was something few films (superhero or otherwise) nail as well as this one does. Chris Evans’ earnest portrayal of the self-sacrificing guy who just doesn’t know when to quit only works as well as it does because Hayley Atwell’s Peggy is a real person with her own arc. She isn’t at all marginalized and isn’t there to motivate the hero. To the script’s credit, their characters operate almost equally narratively, elevating the film way above lesser “love interest” fare. The action is fine compared with what we’ve seen since, but it’s still entertaining in an homage-y kind of way. Best moment: Steve doesn’t hesitate one second to jump on a grenade to protect his fellow soldiers. One of the best acts of self-sacrifice I’ve ever seen in a movie. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)foto1.jpg Marvel Studios 17. Ant-Man Ant-Man may be the MCU movie I was the least excited about (I only saw it three times in the theater). I was never a huge fan of the character in the comics and there was nothing in the trailers that gave me cause to feel differently. A few years removed, it’s still great, but better MCU movies have sent it barreling down the list. Paul Rudd is perfect as Ant-Man, and the movie does a great job showcasing his powers, heroism, needs and wants, making you care about why he becomes a hero. I love this movie still and the Falcon cameo is one of the best hero versus hero fights ever in a film. Luis also is one of the movie’s high points. Best moment: The training montage that culminates with an actual mission to break into Avengers HQ is incredibly well-edited and fun! Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features) 16. Iron Man Director Jon Favreau set the bar high with the first outing of everyone’s favorite genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist. And because this is where it all began, the film will always have a special place in my heart. Upon subsequent viewings, however, it becomes clear the first half of the movie is far better than the second, which suffers from a few too many superhero movie tropes (the villain has the same powers and Iron Man isn’t fighting at full strength for the finale), but I’d watch Tony Stark invent stuff in his garage for eight hours if I could. Iron Man is still a fun movie, but Marvel has gotten so much better. Best moment: The entire opening scene, ending with the title card. It immediately gets you invested in Tony Stark and his story. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)iron-man-3 15. Iron Man 3 This is the best Iron Man movie, thanks to a sharp, hilarious script and strong character work. With Tony Stark out of the armor for most of the running time, the film really has time to dig deep into what really makes this guy so compelling. The villains are credible and threatening and the final fight with Aldrich Killian is still great. The movie also does a good job of making the audience think it’s going one direction only to turn a cliche or trope on its ear, with mostly hilarious results. Not everyone appreciated “the twist,” but I did. It made me confront how quickly I bought into the prepackaged obvious villain instead of the real threat. Best moment: The midair rescue of Air Force One is spectacular because it’s an actual real-life stunt and still one of the more cleverly heroic action sequences you’ll see anywhere. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features) 14. Ant-Man and the Wasp This is first and foremost a comedy, with action thrown in. Not a Ragnarok-style spectacle comedy, but a much more grounded movie that never takes itself too seriously.   The action scenes, especially the San Francisco car chase involving Ant-Man, Wasp and Ghost are really inventive and fun, but the film is always about the characters. I love how Scott continues to make big mistakes for the right reasons and how Hope comes into her own as a full-fledged badass superhero.  Best moment: Agent Woo explains the Sokovia Accords to Cassie. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)avengers-assemble.jpg Marvel Studios 13. The Avengers Imagine living in a reality where this didn’t work. Where all the pieces failed to come together in such a rousing, entertaining way. Despite all the problems in this world, if there’s one thing I’m grateful for it’s that The Avengers exists in the same universe I do. I don’t really know why it works as well as it does. The Avengers is incredibly fun to watch. It’s not a perfect film — the first third is shaky but the rest of the film easily makes up for it. While the novelty of watching characters from different franchises interact in the same movie has waned, the interactions still feel right and are entertaining as hell. Best moment: The single tracking shot of superhero teamwork bliss I thought I’d never live to see captured in live-action.

Guardians of the Galaxy Great characters you immediately care about, interacting with one another in fun ways, coupled with well-directed action with a copious amount of heart thrown in — that’s why Guardians is so good. From the late title card reveal to the final dance-off, the movie strongly establishes its tone and doesn’t deviate for over two hours. The fact that people actually watched this movie and came to care about a talking raccoon and a walking tree is a testament to the skills of Marvel, director James Gunn, the writers and actors. Best moment: To dilute the overwhelming power and pain caused by an infinity stone, the team hold hands in a touching act of self sacrifice.   Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)spider-man-homecoming Marvel Studios 11. Spider-Man: Homecoming Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever made and that train sequence is one of the most memorable action scenes ever put on film. From an action standpoint, nothing in “Homecoming” stands up to that train sequence and yet, Homecoming is easily the better movie of the two. There’s a realness to the characters, the relationships and the world that really inspires the most grounded MCU film so far, but thankfully the spectacle keeps pace and is almost as satisfying as the character interactions. It’s also really, really funny.   Best moment: Trapped under a couple tons of debris, Peter Parker transforms from scared teenage boy into the Spider-Man. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features) 10. Doctor Strange Doctor Strange was the best single character origin movie the Marvel Studios had made when it was released. Sure, the humor is hit or miss. But great acting, spectacular visual effects and attention to detail (the movie never lets us forget the heavy price Strange pays for choosing to be a sorcerer) elevate this to something much greater than the sum of its parts. Doctor Strange proves that magic and sorcerers can work in the MCU by flipping a few movie tropes on their heads and having an abundance of really cool ideas. Best moment: Strange forces Dormammu to kill him over and over and over again until the demon can’t take the endless monotony of it all and gives the Doctor what he wants: a bargain. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)cropcaptainmarvelteam Marvel Studios 9. Captain Marvel I love Carol Danvers. She is unlike any hero in the MCU before her. She’s sarcastic like some other heroes are, but her wit and sarcasm are less defense mechanisms than just organic parts of her confidence and personality. She just likes to eff with people sometimes. She’s great. The movie has a ’90s film look — think Terminator 2, but with an indie tone. There’s a raw and real moment when Carol, after discovering a clue that what she’s been told about her history might be false, speaks to Jude Law’s character. Brie Larson plays it perfectly as a person who is trying to once again accept the lie she’s been told even though her instincts are telling her she’s being played. It’s those moments, along with the humor, action and effects that make this something truly different in the MCU. Best moment: After listening to the blackbox recording at Maria’s house, Carol has a crisis of self. She isn’t who she thought she was and it’s her best friend, Maria who reminds her of what she really is. Powerful. Preorder on AmazonPreorder on Amazon (with Bonus Features)the-avengers-age-of-ultron Marvel Studios 8. Avengers: Age of Ultron Age of Ultron asks some interesting questions of its heroes. Why do they do this? How long can they continue doing this? It goes deeper with the characters than previous movies. While the first film is one of the best examples of a purely fun blockbuster, Ultron is a completely different beast. It takes more narrative chances and as a result (at least from a character standpoint) has bigger payoffs. Age of Ultron isn’t The Avengers, and thankfully it isn’t trying to be. It’s something much more interesting, thought provoking and (dare I say it) profound. Not everyone gets an interesting arc (sorry, Thor) but pretty much every Avenger is confronted with intriguing character challenges that are handled in an elegant way. Best moment: “The Vision, Iron Man and Thor shoot Ultron with their beams!!” is the way I would describe my favorite moment in this film if I were 8 years old. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features) 7. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 There’s a scene at the end of this movie that absolutely wrecks me. It’s the funeral scene that Cat Stevens’ Father and Son plays over. As I watched it unfold I was surprised by just how heavily it was affecting me. It’s a beautiful sequence and it’s the moment I realized I was watching one of the best MCU movies. There’s so much character depth here it’s almost staggering. Story arcs are interwoven between multiple characters and every scene and every line seems to have meaning behind it. And I’m not even going to go into the amazing effects, editing, action scenes and acting. If you thought the filmmakers used ’70s and ’80s pop music effectively in the first movie, this is another level. The first Guardians had catchier tunes, but the ones in the sequel have much more meaning. Again, the movie is all about how its characters relate to one another. By the last shot in the film, there were tears running down my face. As the onscreen characters realized what they’d lost, the path they’d chosen and what it meant for their opportunity for redemption, I was in awe at the movie’s staggering accomplishment. Best moment: The whole sequence that begins with Father and Son is payoff after payoff and completely wrecks me. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)captain-america-the-winter-soldier Marvel Studios 6. Captain America: The Winter Soldier Winter Soldier is Three Days of the Condor mixed with The Raid, with a little Heat and Return of the Jedi thrown in. If you never thought Captain America was an interesting character, this was the first film to have a legit shot at changing your mind. The movie takes some bold actions and its ramifications can still be felt years later in the MCU. We also get much more time with Natasha Romanov and Nick Fury, going much deeper with those characters than before. The script is taut with enough surprises, texture and detail to surprise even the harshest superhero movie critic. And until Civil War, the action set pieces were the best we’d seen in the MCU. Best moment: The highway battle, culminating in a fight between Steve and the Winter Soldier, is one of the best action scenes in any movie ever. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features) 5. Captain America: Civil War The third Captain America movie, Civil War, takes the pure popcorn fun of the first Avengers movie, adds the grittiness of The Winter Soldier and bathes it in the character depth of Age of Ultron. I got everything I wanted from this movie. Black Panther and Spider-Man are perfectly represented and woven seamlessly into the central conflict. But what really surprised me was just how affecting it was. There were several times I found myself getting emotional at some of the character choices — from Natasha flying to London just so Steve wouldn’t be alone at a distressing time to Cap’s confession to Tony near the climax. The movie takes everything that’s come before in the MCU and uses that baggage to make an even better film than would have been possible otherwise. Because of this movie I’ve not been able to watch any of the previous films in the same way. It really does change everything and I love it for that. Best moment: The airport fight is a comic book superhero fight scene come to life. Not just in the action, but maybe even more in the characterization and banter. It had never before been done as well as it was here. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)null Marvel Studios 4. Black Panther I’m going to be honest, it took me four viewings of Black Panther before I fell in love with it. It took me that long to realize what a multilayered and brilliant work it is. Nearly every aspect is top-notch — writing, acting, set design, editing and costumes. But most important are the characters. You could easily make an awesome Okoye, Shuri, Nakia or M’Baku movie. It’s Erik Killmonger, though, and his effect on T’Challa that truly made this movie sit head and shoulders above the rest. And I love most of the films on this list! There’s so much richness here. So much to unpack. This is Marvel Studios at its most mature. How ironic that it was its youngest director that brought it to fruition. Amazing. Best moment: Killmonger’s dream. This is the best scene in the MCU so far. Everything about it, from the acting and writing to the music, editing and even the set design, is perfect. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)nullSeven years ago, who would have guessed these two would be the most charming and funniest characters in the series.  Marvel Studios 3. Thor: Ragnarok To say this is the best Thor movie isn’t saying enough. Thor: Ragnarok feels like when your favorite comic gets a new creative team and they have a different interpretation of the character. That doesn’t always work, but it absolutely works here. It’s funny, it’s weird, it’s creative and it’s completely entertaining. Best moment: After fully embracing his power, Thor jumps into a horde of undead as The Immigrant Song reprises. It’s definitely the most metal thing ever in a Marvel movie. Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features) 2. Avengers: Infinity War This is the first movie ever which, to get the most out of its narrative, absolutely requires you to have seen at least most of the 18 movies in the series that preceded it. That’s not a criticism, but I think one of the movie’s biggest strengths. As the culmination of this series of movies that has spanned over 10 years, and it only gets better if you’re more familiar with the huge amount of characters in the film. Still, even if you have only a passing familiarity with these series, there’s still enough comedy, spectacle and suspense to sate your summer movie blockbuster hunger. And a fairly straightforward plot means it’s unlikely you’ll get too lost. Best moment: Thor’s entrance into Wakanda is such a ridiculously earned moment. It was also the greatest fist-pumping moment of the entire MCU so far.  Rent/Buy on AmazonRent/Buy on Amazon (with Bonus Features)nullHmmm, who’s missing from this shot? Marvel Studios 1. Avengers: Endgame I’ve never seen a pop culture phenomenon end as perfectly as Avengers: Endgame. As a bookend to 11 years of superhero movies, I’m not sure if it could have been done better. For me it brings to mind the final episode of The Wire or Return of the King. There’s just so much emotional payoff I was literally spent after watching it.  Share your voice Captain Marvel Black Panther Stan Lee Marvel Thor Captain America Amazon Iron Man The Hulk The Avengerslast_img read more

Congresswoman Maxine Waters Statement on Capital One Data Breach

first_imgBy NNPAWASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, issued the following statement on a data breach which exposed account information of over 100 million Capital One customers.“This data breach shows that it’s not just big technology companies and credit reporting agencies like Equifax that are vulnerable to hacking and data breaches – big banks are vulnerable targets as well. As this is not the first incident in which Capital One’s customer data was exposed, we need to understand what bank regulators have been doing to ensure that this bank, and other banks, have strong cybersecurity policies and practices. We must also understand what bank regulators are doing to ensure strong oversight of third-party technology providers that banks work with.“As we learn more about this incident, I plan to work with my colleagues and take action in the Financial Services Committee on legislation to improve oversight of the cybersecurity of financial institutions.Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee“This massive data breach also underscores how important it is that the consumer credit reporting bills that the Financial Services Committee recently passed become law so that any consumer affected by a data breach is not further harmed. Among other things, the bills the Committee passed ensure that consumers can get a free copy of their credit score, provide better tools for victims of fraud, and make it easier for consumers to get errors on their reports corrected.”On July 11 and July 16, the Financial Services Committee passed a series of consumer credit reporting bills, including:H.R. 3642, the “Improving Credit Reporting for All Consumers Act,” introduced by Representative Alma Adams (D-NC)Rep. Adams’ bill addresses burdens consumers experience when removing errors from their consumer reports, including by providing a new right to appeal the results of initial reviews about the accuracy or completeness of disputed items on the report. The bill empowers consumers by clarifying injunctive relief is available to ensure reporting errors are actually fixed when a consumer is harmed.H.R. 3618, the “Free Credit Scores for Consumers Act of 2019,” introduced by Representative Joyce Beatty (D-OH)Rep. Beatty’s bill directs the nationwide CRAs to give consumers free copies of their credit scores that are used by creditors in making credit decisions, as determined by the Consumer Bureau, or if not practicable, educational credit scores whenever consumers obtain their free annual consumer reports. A consumer can get their free credit score once a year, and they can get a free credit score if they have reason to believe that their file contains inaccurate information due to fraud.H.R. 3622, the “Restoring Unfairly Impaired Credit and Protecting Consumers Act,” introduced by Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI)Rep. Tlaib’s bill would, among other things, establish the right to free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services if a consumer is a victim of identity theft, fraud, or a related crime, or harmed by the unauthorized disclosure of the consumer’s financial or personally identifiable information.H.R. 3614, the “Restricting Use of Credit Checks for Employment Decisions Act,” introduced by Representative Al Lawson (D-FL)Rep. Lawson’s bill would generally prohibit employers from using credit reports for employment decisions, except when a credit report is required by local, state, or Federal law or for a national security clearance.H.R. 3621, the “Student Borrower Credit Improvement Act,” introduced by Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)Rep. Pressley’s bill would remove adverse credit file information relating to defaulted or delinquent private education loans for borrowers who demonstrate a history of timely loan repayments for these loans.  The bill would require repayment plans be affordable and reasonable, and permits reasonable interruptions in the consecutive repayment periods for those facing unique and extenuating life events, such as service members who are receiving imminent danger or other special pay duty when deployed.H.R. 3629, the “Clarity in Credit Score Formation Act of 2019,” introduced by Representative Stephen Lynch (D-MA).Rep. Lynch’s bill would clarify oversight of the development of credit scoring models by directing the Consumer Bureau to set standards for validating the accuracy and predictive value of credit scoring models. The bill would also require the Consumer Bureau to study the impact of having more non-traditional data on consumer reports and the use of alternative data in credit scoring models.last_img read more
