ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIf you thought the ‘Insidious' series was done after the third movie, think again. Successful horror franchises never quite die, and this one is no different. There's not a better franchise whisperer than James Wan right now, and after launching both the ‘Saw' and ‘Conjuring' series, he also took on 2015's pivotal Furious 7, a great entry into an already great franchise that paved the way for many, many more years of good Fast movies. Other than that, he'll also be tackling ‘Aquaman', a DC movie coming out next year. © Blumhouse Productions ‘Insidious' falls between all of these accomplishments, with the franchise beginning in 2010, and now it's entering its fourth chapter, ‘The Last Key'. Even though this series hasn't reached the level of ‘The Conjuring' and ‘Saw', it is still quite an entertaining and successful franchise. © Blumhouse Productions One of the big tag lines of the original Insidious was "it's not the house that's haunted", and it does seem to be quite applicable for this latest one as well. In ‘The Last Key', the veteran spook investigator, Lin Shaye, will discover that it's also a very personal case. In this one, Shaye's character Dr. Elise Rainier is contacted by a desperate family (led by Kirk Acevedo), as they are experiencing and being tortured by truly terrifying apparitions since they moved into their new house. © Blumhouse Productions But, as soon as she reaches there, Elise realizes that the house is a little too familiar, being the same house she grew up in. The movie will have Elise dealing with new a supernatural menace along with her own past, but the scariest part is the introduction of a weird new villain: A demonic creature with keys for fingers that has an unpleasant affinity for plunging them into people's necks. © Blumhouse Productions Check out the scary as hell trailer here: Well, the use of the word ‘last' in the title might be an indication to this being the final instalment of the franchise, so let's enjoy it while it lasts! ‘Insidious : The Last Key' is set to hit the theatres in January next year.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogNEW YORK - After two marathons, Roger Federer had the after-burners on, sprinting past Spaniard Feliciano Lopez 6-3 6-3 7-5 and into the fourth round of the US Open on Saturday. Chasing a sixth US. Open title, Federer needed just one hour and 46 minutes under a closed roof at Arthur Ashe Stadium to put away the 31st seed Lopez, leaving plenty in the tank after being forced to go the distance in his opening two matches. It has been a far different start to the US Open than Wimbledon where an economical Federer stormed to his 19th grand slam title without dropping a set. In his opening two matches at Flushing Meadows, a misfiring Federer had been forced to five sets, first by American young gun Frances Tiafoe then Russian veteran Mikhail Youzhny. After being broken eight times and committing a whopping 124 unforced errors in those first two contests, a focused Federer tightened up his game against Lopez, operating with his hallmark efficiency. ?I struggled the first couple of rounds but I think that had something to do with my opponents. They came out and played very well,? Federer said in his post-match interview on court. "Once I got off to a slow start and once my opponent fought back really hard and today it almost happened again in the third set but I think I played a very clean match. ?I couldn?t be happier to get a match in straight sets against Feliciano who has been a great competitor over the years.? A capacity crowd saw Federer try out everything in his tool bag. The timely big serve, the elegant backhand, laser forehands, hustle and defense were all on display. He committed just 16 unforced errors while firing 32 winners to run his record to 13-0 against the 35-year-old Spaniard. Federer started the match as if he had dinner reservations, breaking Lopez to go up 4-2 then holding serve to clinch the opening set in a snappy 25 minutes. He marched on, his focus only faltering slightly in the third set when he allowed Lopez to break back. But the 36-year-old Swiss just buckled down and broke Lopez again to close out the match and set up a fourth round meeting with German Philipp Kohlschreiber.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogLAS VEGAS: Floyd Mayweather Jr picked up the 50th win of his illustrious career, defeating Conor McGregor by 10th-round TKO on Saturday night in Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. With the victory, Mayweather surpasses Rocky Marciano, who retired in 1956 with a 49-0 record. Many expected Mayweather to beat McGregor, with the biggest question being whether the fight would last the full 12 rounds. Mayweather's last knockout was against Victor Ortiz in 2011. No sellout but Mayweather, McGregor have Sin City buzzing Just hours before the fighters were to step into the ring, tickets price shot to $2,500-$10,000 for ringside Although McGregor is UFC's lightweight champion, he was clearly overmatched against somebody who's one of the best defensive boxers in history. The likes of Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez, Miguel Cotto and Oscar De La Hoya have all tried to take down Mayweather and failed. McGregor stood little chance in what was his boxing debut.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogTime to practice your crane kick. YouTube Red, the online video giant's subscription service, announced Friday a new series based on the cult classic "Karate Kid," with two of film's principal actors reprising their roles as foes. The 1984 original starring Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, a bullied teen who turns to elderly Japanese-American Mr Miyagi (the late Pat Morita) for mentoring and training, was a worldwide blockbuster that led to three sequels and a 2010 remake starring Jaden Smith. The new series, titled "Cobra Kai" after the fanatical dojo attended by the first film's villains, is set 30 years later and sees Daniel struggling to deal with the loss of Miyagi. His teenage nemesis Johnny Lawrence (played by William Zabka) has held on to a grudge and is determined to restart their rivalry in the ring. The 10-part series will be co-produced by Will Smith's production company. YouTube Red has been seeking to develop original content since its launch in 2015.
Sharapova hadn´t played in the US since March 2015 LOS ANGELES: Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova made a battling return to US hardcourts on Monday with a 6-1, 4-6, 6-0 victory over American Jennifer Brady in Stanford, California. "I feel like I just want to hug everyone and say thank you," Sharapova told fans in a post-match interview. "It´s my first match in the States in a really long time, and it´s the closest thing to home for me." The former world number one from Russia hadn´t played in the US since March of 2015, before serving a 15-month doping suspension for the use of meldonium. She returned to competition in April, but her comeback has been disrupted by a hip injury that forced her to withdraw from Wimbledon qualifying. Sharapova, whose ranking has fallen to 171 in the world, received a wild card into the premier level tournament in Stanford, where she was tested Monday by the 80th-ranked Brady. Sharapova got off to a brisk start. Although she needed to save three break points in the sixth game to take a 5-1 lead in the opening set, she broke in the next game to seize the set before Brady won the second. "I had a bit of a letdown but that´s the way it is," Sharapova said. "You finish a set and think you´ve got it, but she came out firing, capable of hitting winners and big serves." Early in the third Sharapova fought off two break points to consolidate her lead, and wrapped up the match after two hours and two minutes. "I feel like I face a lot of things: not competing for a long time, an opponent who´s able to play some great tennis ... I feel like I´m playing catch-up against everyone who´s had a head start," Sharapova said. "All that matters is that I keep playing." Sharapova, who has also accepted a wildcard into the WTA tournament in Cincinnati -- another key warmup for the US Open -- booked a second-round meeting with seventh-seeded Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko, a 6-3, 6-3 winner over Spain´s Lara Arruabarrena. Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza, who stunned Venus Williams in the final at the All England Club, is the top seed. She will open with a second-round match against American Kayla Day, who defeated Japan´s Misaki Doi 6-4, 6-2 on Monday.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogULAANBAATAR: There was no outright winner in Mongolia's presidential election on Monday, forcing the country's first ever second-round run-off between the two leading candidates, the country's General Election Committee said of Tuesday. The populist former martial arts star Khaltmaa Battulga of the opposition Democratic Party won the most votes, but failed to secure the majority required, the committee said. After the final districts were counted overnight, Battulga emerged with 517,478 votes, 38.1 percent of the total, according to Mongolian state television. Ruling Mongolian People's Party (MPP) candidate Miyeegombo Enkhbold, regarded as pro-investment and market-friendly, scraped through to the second round with 411,748 votes, 30.3 percent of the total. The election was seen as referendum on the government's economic recovery plans and China's role in the country. Battulga is regarded as a resource nationalist who is suspicious of neighbouring China, while Enkhbold, an establishment politician and parliamentary speaker, appears to have suffered as a result of his party's austerity policies. The new MPP administration raised interest rates and slashed public spending last year to try to cope with heavy debts and a precipitous fall in the value of Mongolia's currency, the tugrik. Enkhbold, the pre-election favourite, was trailing in third place for much of the count after a stronger than expected performance by Sainkhuu Ganbaatar of the breakaway Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party (MPRP). Ganbaatar finished with 30.2 percent, trailing Enkhbold by fewer than 2,000 votes, but is expected to be eliminated from the second round. All three presidential candidates promised to pull the country out of its current crisis, but their campaigns were clouded by corruption allegations. Mongolia, a remote, resource-rich land known as the birthplace of Mongol emperor Genghis Khan, is a parliamentary democracy. The government is run by the prime minister, but the president has powers to veto legislation and make judicial appointments.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogLONDON: Young gun Anthony Joshua got up off the canvas to stop former champion Wladimir Klitschko Saturday in the 11th round of a heavyweight world title fight that is being hailed as an epic. In a tumultuous atmosphere at Wembley Stadium, 90,000 fans saw the undefeated 27-year-old add the World Boxing Association (WBA) title to his International Boxing Federation (IBF) belt sparked by a devastating right uppercut that led to the 41-year-old Klitschko being felled in the 11th. The Ukrainian former world champion rose unsteadily before being floored again. He bravely got up once more but referee David Fields waved it off soon after as he was unable to defend himself against a barrage of Joshua blows on the ropes. American Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard was among those who immediately hailed the contest as ´amazing´. "Such an amazing fight with 2 great fighters. Lot of heart by both fighters. A lot of questions answered by @anthonyfjoshua #JoshuaKlitchsko," he tweeted. Lennox Lewis paid tribute to Klitschko for getting up twice in the 11th from devastating Joshua punches. "How much heart did @Klitschko show in this fight? Gotta respect it. Hold ur head high brother! #joshuaklitschko." tweeted the Briton who was the last man to be the undisputed world heavyweight champion. The Ukrainian had also been sent crashing to the floor in the fifth round as the 27-year-old British fighter took his perfect record to 19 stoppage wins in 19 fights. "What can I say? 19-0, three and a half years in the game. As I said, I´m not perfect but I´m trying and if you don´t take part you´re going to fail," said Joshua who was put on the canvas for the first time in his career in the sixth round of the see-saw battle. ´Leave your ego at the door´ "As boxing states, you leave your ego at the door and you respect your opponent. So a massive shout out to Wladimir Klitschko," said Joshua. A third defence of his IBF world heavyweight title also earned Joshua the vacant WBA belt as he became the first British heavyweight since Lewis in 2002 to hold two versions of the world title. It was Klitschko´s first stoppage defeat since Lamon Brewster beat him in 2004 and leaves his record at 64 wins and five defeats. "The best man won tonight and it´s a massive event for boxing," Klitschko told Sky Sports. "Two gentleman fought each other. Anthony was better today. It´s really sad I didn´t make it tonight." Klitschko was trying to reclaim two of the three belts he lost to Joshua´s fellow Briton Tyson Fury by an upset on points in November 2015. The Ukrainian had not fought since then and entered the ring as the underdog in front of Britain´s largest boxing attendance since 1939. Klitschko could not establish his jab in the first round and it was Joshua who landed more punches, with the best being a left hook in the opening minute. Sledgehammer left hand Joshua began the second confidently and repeatedly found Klitschko with his jab. The Briton missed with a big overhand right at the start of the third round but then connected with a sledgehammer left hand. Klitschko began the fourth full of intent but it was Joshua who started quicker in a thunderous fifth round. The Briton wobbled Klitschko with a left before landing a series of clubbing blows, including a cracking right uppercut, which sent the Ukrainian to the canvas. Klitschko got up but was on unsteady legs and began swinging wildly. Joshua suddenly became static on the ropes after punching himself out. Klitschko seized his moment and began to land flush as he took control. In the sixth, Joshua´s early confidence had evaporated and he was dropped by a right hand to the temple. He was up at eight and immediately had to duck a big left from Klitschko before surviving the round. In the 11th Joshua uncorked a sweet right uppercut to snap back Klitschko´s head, followed by another right to send his opponent to the canvas. Klitschko courageously got up but was nailed by another right and another right uppercut and went down again. Klitschko got up but when Joshua started to pile on the pressure referee Fields had no option but to save the brave Ukrainian from further punishment.
Yakutsk in Russia’s Siberia province is one of the coldest cities in the world, with temperatures dropping to an average of minus 34° Celcius during the freezing winter months and only five hours of daylight. While this means crops can't be grown in the frozen soil, local authorities now believe they've found a way around that. They've teamed up with Japanese firm Hokkaido Corporation to build greenhouses with special technology. The local mayor Aisen Nikolaev hopes the project will go a long way to providing the fruit and vegetables that Yakutsk's people need. Once the infrastructure construction has passed the second stage of completion, “we plan to harvest around 1700 tonnes of cucumbers, more than 600 tonnes of tomatoes, and around 25 tonnes of greens, which should satisfy about 30-40 percent of the Yakutsk population's needs”, explained Nikolaev. The greenhouses are specially designed to withstand the extreme cold. Three layers of a thin film made from rubber with thermal insulation properties are used. The mayor said, “It is three times thinner, but at the same time it can be stretched widely. It takes seven tonnes of weight per square metre piece for the film to break.” Interestingly, the material has the ability to receive better sunlight than ordinary glass. “[It] managed to last through this winter with temperatures dropping below minus 50 Celsius,” Nikolaev added. Most of the produce till now had to be transported from Russia's Krasnodar region or imported from China. But if this technology proves to be a success, the tomatoes won't have to travel too far to feed Yakutsk.
