Food is a quintessential piece of the football season and perhaps no one knows that better than chefs.With the National Football League season on the horizon, we chatted with several chefs, who are also huge football fans, about their favorite game day foods at NFL stadiums and tailgates, then figured out the best way to translate those to the couch, the parking lot, or wherever you find yourself watching your team.Fried Cheese CurdsLauri Patterson/Getty ImagesWho: Nick Korbee, executive chef of Egg Shop, New York CityAllegiance: Green Bay PackersGo-to food: Fried cheese curdsNick Korbee Egg ShopHardcore Packers fans are cheeseheads and they take that to heart at Lambeau Field’s concession stands, Korbee says. He’s quick to order a plate of fried cheese curds, topped nacho-style with cheese and pickled jalapeños.“Super unique to Wisconsin, but they’re super easy to do at home,” he elaborates. “You can find them almost anywhere, so a simple tempura batter from a box works really well in a quick fry with vegetable oil.” Top them off with plenty of salt and pickled jalapeños, then enjoy with a beer.Korbee says if normal cheese curds aren’t available at the local store — or you simply want to time to take it up a notch — cheeses like manchego, smoked mozzarella, young gouda, or aged provolone would work.He’s also fond of Lambeau Field’s “Horse Collar 22-inch kielbasa” topped with beer cheese and sauerkraut. “It’s way over the top, and if you don’t know what it is it probably sounds thoroughly disgusting, but I’d do it at home,” he admits.Polish SausageBrent Hofacker/Getty ImagesWho: Tony Galzin, chef/owner of Nicky’s Coal Fired, NashvilleAllegiance: Chicago BearsGo-to food: Polish sausageTony Glazin Danielle AtkinsBeing from the South Side of Chicago, Galzin is naturally a big fan of a Polish sausage, but it has to be done the right way. “I just feel like the Maxwell Street Polish is so iconic to Chicago,” he says. “Just the preparation of it: griddled onions on the flat top, soft French roll, and usually yellow mustard, with the sausage split in half and charred, cut-side down.”Every time he’s at Soldier Field, he makes sure to grab one. He’s also trying his best to bring that classic dish to Nashville. Galzin says its actually easy to do at home: slice the Polish sausage in half but keep it attached, putting it cut-side down on a cast iron pan over medium-low heat then slowly caramelizing it before kissing it on the other side.As for mustard, it’s important to keep it straight yellow. “It doesn’t bring the nasal-y heat like a Dijon and it’s not sweet like a whole-grain,” he explains. “It’s more about the vinegar in the yellow mustard, that’s the biggest component. The yellow mustard has a vinegary cut through the fatty pork; that’s why it’s so complimentary and also why I don’t like ketchup — it’s so sweet. Not what you want on a Polish or even a hot dog.”Philly CheesesteakYuri Long/FlickrWho: Dave Anoia, chef/owner of DiAnoia’s Eatery, PittsburghAllegiance: Philadelphia EaglesGo-to food: Philly cheesesteakDave Anoia Hannah Schneider CreativeAnoia says there’s nothing like a good Philly cheesesteak while watching a game, as it offers the same handheld convenience of a hot dog or burger, albeit a little messier. “But you’re jumping around, drinking beer, cheering — a little mess is OK,” Anoia adds.Without question, Anoia takes his with cheese whiz. He says it adds both the cheese and a nice complimentary creaminess that can replace mayo. At home, Anoia encourages you to grab a ribeye, slice it as thin as possible (it’s alright if it tears), and saute it up in a pan before grabbing a soft roll — bread makes the sandwich, he says. As for the cheese wiz, homemade is fine , but some things, like many condiments, are just worth buying packaged.While tailgating, he’s a big fan of beer-braised brats (Anoia likes a nice robust porter) on a charcoal grill. Braise until warm on the inside then move to the grill for nice marks before topping with mustard and a bit of giardiniera. “Not too much, you don’t want to lose the flavor of the beer,” he details. “Otherwise you might as well do it with water or Coors Light.”Fried ChickenSFC on NBC/TwitterWho: Darryl Harmon, executive chef of Slate, New York CityAllegiance: Philadelphia EaglesGo-to food: Fried chickenDarryk Harmon Clinton HallHarmon is a fan of stadiums making their way toward fancier, more innovative foods. At Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, he noshes on the “Slim Chicken,” a chicken breast with a Frosted Flakes crust, sharp cheddar cheese, and ghost chili honey glazed bacon served on an apple fritter. Harmon also points out Yankee Stadium for serving up fried chicken sandwiches from chef David Chang’s Momofuku.“I think everyone is reinventing a chicken sandwich for game days,” he explains. While the “Slim Chicken” might be a bit ambitious for a home cook, Harmon says to just put a nice crispy chicken breast on a sliced glazed donut with a simple butter compound.

by Dirk Meissner, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 20, 2015 5:33 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Hydro chief says more talks key to finding Site C solutions with First Nations VICTORIA – The woman in charge of getting the massive Site C hydroelectric dam built in British Columbia’s northeast says she’s open to more talking and listening to break down a wall of opposition by First Nations.BC Hydro president and CEO Jessica McDonald said she has learned from experience that getting past the answer No is to keep talking.“It’s by listening and by having genuine and meaningful conversations,” she told The Canadian Press in an interview. “At the end of the day it’s about communication and it’s about that we are listening and really understanding and really being open and trying to find solutions that address the very unique concerns that each community will have.”But First Nations leaders say the province’s approval of the $8.8-billion project last month means the time for talk is over and the government’s idea of consultation was telling them that the massive dam will be built.Construction on the Peace River project is set to start this summer. It will flood agricultural land, First Nations burial and archeological sites and destroy hunting, fishing and spiritual areas.Environmental groups, ranchers and First Nations have vowed to fight Site C, with some First Nations taking their opposition to the federal Court of Canada for a judicial review.But McDonald, who was appointed last July to head Crown-owned BC Hydro, said the utility’s commitment to having open conversations with each of the First Nations communities is as strong as ever.McDonald said she discovered as a deputy minister in former premier Gordon Campbell’s government that perceptions of deep divisions between aboriginals and non-aboriginals can be bridged just by continuing to talk. She played a major role in talks between the government and aboriginal leaders toward building what became known as a new relationship and proposed reconciliation legislation that was never introduced.“The biggest observation I had, and it came very early on, is that we hadn’t been talking enough,” she said. “We built up a lot of assumptions where the issues were and why we might be at odds on various issues. There were just so many assumptions that were being carried that we sort of missed the opportunity to have the conversation.”Grand Chief Ed John, who leads the First Nations Summit that speaks on behalf of First Nations involved in treaty negotiations in B.C., said he was part of the new relationship talks. He said McDonald likely acquired a deeper understanding of aboriginal views of land rights and ownership.“If anyone, she would understand what we were talking about,” he said. “She became the point person in the discussions around aboriginal rights and title and its historical context.”John said he would not advise McDonald on how BC Hydro should proceed with First Nations in the wake of pending legal challenges of Site C.“They will have a big hill to climb, I think BC Hydro does,” he said. “It’s going to be rife with challenges.”West Moberly First Nations Chief Roland Willson said he believes the fix was in from the start on the dam and no amount of talking would divert the government from its goal to build.“Everything that they’ve done, all their policies, their legislation, every decision they’ve made they made so there’s only one outcome and that was Site C. They ignored everything we put on the table. There was never an opportunity to change Site C.”Wilson said his Fort St. John-area First Nation and three others have launched a Federal Court application for a judicial review of the Site C decision.Willson said his First Nation isn’t opposed to energy development, noting the West Moberly proposed gas-fired plants to produce energy, but those plans were rejected in favour of Site C.“We’re going to court and if we can get the (court) to see our side of it, Site C is dead in the water and the province and the federal government are going to have to come back and talk to us again.”McDonald said BC Hydro has been working closely with First Nations for eight years on the Site C project. While she said she’s not willing to discuss private talks, they generally revolve around local benefits versus concerns or issues about the project.The dam, the third on the Peace River, would flood an 83-kilometre stretch of valley near Fort St. John. The project has been part of B.C.’s long-range energy options since 1958 and would produce 1,100 megawatts of capacity every year, enough to power about 450,000 homes, according to BC Hydro.
United Nations Secretary-General has strongly condemned today the killing by M23 rebels of a UN peacekeeper in strife-riven eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and pledged the Organization’s ongoing commitment to take “all necessary actions” to protect civilians in the country.In a statement issued by his spokesperson in New York, the UN chief condemned “in the strongest terms” the killing of a Tanzanian peacekeeper who came under fire from the 23 March Movement (M23) in the eastern DRC. According to the statement, the attacks occurred as the UN Organization Stabilization Mission (MONUSCO) supported action being carried out by Congolese Government Forces (FARDC) to protect civilians on the Kiwanja-Rutshuru axis, 25 kilometres north of Goma, which the main city in the vast country’s eastern region.“The Secretary-General offers his sincere condolences and sympathy to the family of the victim, and to the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania,” the statement says.Further to the statement, Mr. Ban says the UN remains committed to taking all necessary actions in line with Security Council resolution 2098 (2013) to protect civilians in eastern DRC.By that resolution, adopted in late March, the Council approved the creation of its first-ever “offensive” combat force, intended to carry out targeted operations to “neutralize and disarm” the notorious M23, as well as other Congolese rebels and foreign armed groups in the east.Today’s incident comes after increased tension in the region in recent days. Just this past Friday, UN spokesman Martin Nesirky told reporters in New York that MONUSCO was on “high alert” following early morning clashes between Congolese Government forces and M23 armed combatants.He said at that time that the Mission reported that Government forces and M23 had exchanged mortar and machine gun fire near Kibumba, around 15 km north of Goma.Yesterday, MONUSCO chief Martin Kobler and Special Envoy of the Secretary-General to the Great Lakes Region, Mary Robinson, jointly expressed their concern about the ongoing violence in eastern DRC and urged all parties to exercise “maximum restraint” and to return to peace talks in the Ugandan capital, Kampala.In the past year, clashes have continued sporadically throughout the DRC’s eastern region, with rebels briefly occupying Goma, in November 2012. The fighting has displaced more than 100,000 people, exacerbating an ongoing humanitarian crisis in the region which includes 2.6 million internally displaced persons and 6.4 million in need of food and emergency aid.
Racegoers speak to police at the sceneCredit:David Mirzoeff/PA He said that one of the horses slipped over as the carriage charged round a mini roundabout, knocking over one of its teammates and sending it sliding into a glass shop front.”The horse ended up going straight off the pavement and into the glass front of a big clothing shop,” he said.”At least one of the horses was jammed into the window.”Mr Copeland, 52, said the accident happened at around 6pm on Thursday evening as racegoers left at the end of the day.”I think the people in the carriage were in some sort of VIP section at the race course.” A policeman at the scene said he understood the incident involved four horses, while a taxi driver who saw it happen said one horse looked particularly injured.Taxi driver Mohamad Amjad said it appeared that the carriage was coming down the road and potentially was panicked by a horn blowing.He said it seemed to be the case that the front two horses “slid” into the shop front, adding that one horse appeared badly injured. “People put towels on to try to control the blood,” he said.Eyewitness Gary Copeland was driving behind the four-horse carriage when he saw the driver lose control and go careering down the road with guests dressed for the races clinging on.He said: “I was driving past the race course when the carriage was let out in front of me, I was right behind it and then another car slotted in between me and it.”The horses must have bolted and went off straight down the high street. The driver had clearly lost control.” A horse-drawn carriage has smashed into the window of a designer clothes shop in Ascot after the animals were spooked and bolted down the high street.One horse is understood to have been seriously injured in the collision after losing its balance as the carriage went straight over a mini roundabout near Royal Ascot, where Ladies’ Day had just finished.A section of the front window of Nataliya Couture on London Road was smashed after the incident on Thursday evening, which is said to have involved four horses.Shards of glass and manure remained on the pavement within a police tape outside the shop which was not opened when the crash happened.Blood also appeared to be visible on a section of the smashed front, while glass was lying around the mannequin displays and a shutter at the back of the space was buckled. Four horses were pulling a traditional coaching carriage when it slipped at a roundabout on Ascot High StreetCredit:SWNS.com There were white marks on the road and pavement going towards the section of the front that got smashed. It’s understood no people were hurt.The shop sells formal wear, including fascinators, like the style showcased by women on Ladies’ Day.

A joint venture comprised of Cameco (70%) and Mitsubishi Development (30%) has purchased the Kintyre uranium project in Western Australia from Rio Tinto for $495 million through a bidding process. Cameco will operate the project and is funding its share of the purchase price through existing credit facilities. The transaction is expected to close in August subject to ministerial approval in Western Australia and execution of certain agreements with the Martu people who are the traditional owners of the land. Kintyre is an advanced exploration project located about 1,250 km northeast of Perth. Based upon Cameco’s due diligence, it is estimated that the Kintyre project may host potential mineral deposits ranging from 62 to 80 Mlb U3O8 in total, with an average grade between 0.3% and 0.4% U3O8. These estimates are conceptual in nature. The basis for these conceptual estimates includes 355 historical diamond drill holes totalling 70,279 m. There has been insufficient exploration, however, to define a resource at the Kintyre project in compliance with NI 43-101 resource reporting standards. Cameco will be undertaking an exploration program with the objective of estimating a resource for the deposits.Uranium was first discovered in the area in 1985 and followed up with extensive exploration that identified eight deposits. The project was placed in care and maintenance in 1988 when uranium prices declined below $12/lb. The sale process was initiated by Rio Tinto in 2007.“The Kintyre project is an ideal fit with Cameco’s strategy to expand our base of quality uranium assets,” said Cameco’s president and CEO Jerry Grandey. “It adds potential for low-cost open pit production and further diversifies our uranium business geographically.”Upon closing, the joint venture will begin working toward a mine development agreement with the Martu. Cameco has experience working with traditional owners in Australia, including the Martu, through its ongoing exploration programs.Development of the Kintyre deposits is subject to state government approval. The current Labor government in Western Australia permits uranium exploration, but continues to oppose new uranium mine development. However, Australian governments and political parties generally are becoming more supportive of uranium development. In 2007, the federal Australian Labor Party abandoned a long-standing policy opposing development of new uranium mines. Since forming the national government, the party has become supportive of uranium mining generally in Australia.Cameco has been actively exploring in Australia since 1997 and has exploration licences for more than 795,000 ha of land in Western Australia (some proximate to the Kintyre deposits), South Australia and the Northern Territory. In February 2008, Cameco secured rights to the Angela-Pamela deposits in the Northern Territory through a joint venture with Paladin Energy. Cameco has offices in Darwin and Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.Mitsubishi Development is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corp and is based in Sydney, Australia. The company owns investments in coal and iron ore in Australia, including a 50% share of BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance, the world’s largest metallurgical coal producer. Cameco, with its head office in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, is the world’s largest uranium producer.

This includes the latest ultra class offering from Hitachi – the EH5000AC3, which is equipped with the company’s newly developed AC3 HDCS (Hitachi Drive Control System). The AC3 drive is the next generation in Hitachi’s drive development, following on from the ACII drive that features on the EH3500ACII, EH4000ACII and EH5000ACII trucks.Also at the event is Sandvik’s new TH663 underground truck; details on Joy Global’s new hybrid shovel and underground hard rock cutting concept; the Cubex Centaur underground ITH drill; Komatsu’s trolley capable 960E-2K surface truck along with the AC drive 730E; as well as Liebherr’s T284 and T264 mining trucks and its R9400 hydraulic excavcator. But some of the more specialised manufacturers are also launching new machines and technologies, from a new Dart Rimpull 100 short ton truck to a new revolutionary water tank design from Westech, to a new underground grader from Ground Force, which forms part of its new UGF range. IM will give more details on these and other new offerings to the global market as the week progresses and in our in-depth features going forward in 2012/2013.
South Africa President, Cyril Ramaphosa, has officially opened Vedanta Zinc International’s (VZI) Gamsberg mine, outside Aggeneys in the Northern Cape Province.Ramaphosa was joined by Minister of Mineral Resources, Gwede Mantashe, Northern Cape Premier, Sylvia Lucas, and hosted by Vedanta Chairman, Anil Agarwal, Vedanta CEO, Srinivasan Venkatakrishnan, and VZI CEO, Deshnee Naidoo, at the ceremony.The Gamsberg zinc resource, though discovered more than 40 years ago, had been held undeveloped in the portfolios of various South Africa mining companies until Vedanta acquired it in 2011, as part of the Black Mountain Mining complex. Vedanta gave the project the go-ahead in 2014, and the first blast occurred in mid-2015, eight months later. Gamsberg has a reserve and resource of more than 214 Mt with a grade of 6-6.5% Zn and an estimated life of mine (LoM) of 30-plus years.Phase 1 of Gamsberg, celebrated today, represents a $400 million investment by Vedanta in South Africa. It has a LoM of 13 years and will see 4 Mt/y of ore produced from the open pit and 250,000 t/y of concentrate from its concentrator plant.Investigations into Phase 2 and 3 are underway and will see production of zinc-in-concentrate increase to 450,000 t/y, and in a modular fashion ultimately, to 600,000 t/y. It will reflect an additional investment of $350-$400 million.Vedanta is simultaneously pursuing a feasibility study into the development and construction of a smelter-refinery complex, it said.Vedanta’s CEO, Srinivasan Venkatakrishnan, said: “More than 90% of our $400 million investment at Gamsberg has been spent in South Africa. Our expenditure with local enterprises was around R77.5 million ($5.5 million) in 2018, while we invested more than R44.6 million in 2018 on training and social projects aimed at skills development, education, health, enterprise development and municipal infrastructure support. And this was before the mine had made a single cent.”Delivering the keynote address, Cyril Ramaphosa, said: “The Vedanta Gamsberg project is an important step in our shared journey to revive our mining industry. It confirms our view that with an effective regulatory framework, improved collaboration between all stakeholders and sustained investment, mining has the potential to be a sunrise industry. South Africa has vast undeveloped mineral deposits that we have the opportunity to exploit for the benefit of all the people of this country.”Gamsberg is one of the most digitally advanced greenfield mining projects in South Africa, according to Vedanta. Digitalisation at Gamsberg includes Smart Ore Movement, Spatial Risk Monitoring and Management and Collision Avoidance Systems.

Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. See it CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Juan Garzón/CNET It’s the end of the road for Google Trips.The internet giant announced this week that it would discontinue support for the Android travel-planning app in two months. The app debuted in 2016, promising to help users organize their travel arrangements via phones and other devices, even when offline. The app would guide users to particular places of interest and restaurants, as well as consolidate their reservations and tickets.It also let you customize a daily itinerary, laying out how to get to places and figuring out how long your route would take. And if you didn’t have an itinerary in mind, the app could generate one for you.Several travel services already offered this kind of planning, but Trips took advantage of Google’s wide geographical database as well as Gmail, which is where you could send reservations and ticket confirmations. Speculation that Google Trips’ days were numbered began in May when Google announced plans to revamp the Trips web service, making the Trips information more accessible at Google Travel, Google Maps and Google Search. Google said on a support page that it’ll end support for Google Trips on Aug. 5, but users will still be able to access email and trip information until then. I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $999 Read the AirPods review Turo Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray)
An Alaska commercial fishing advocacy group is beginning to get an idea of what its new Salmon Habitat Information Program – or SHIP – will look like. The program is aimed at engaging commercial fisherman around the state in salmon habitat issues.Listen Now United Fishermen of Alaska, which represents 35 Alaska commercial fishing organizations, conducted a fishermen survey this summer.SHIP Director Lindsey Bloom said they were asked to list their priorities.“Fisherman, while they’re concerned about a variety of issues, mining, climate change and pollution scored the highest,” said Bloom. “At a local level, people mentioned the proposed [Bristol Bay] Pebble Mine and mining development in the trans-boundary region as the most mentioned specific concerns.”Fishermen’s worries about mining reaffirmed UFA’s previous advocacy for State Department involvement in trans-boundary mining. But, Bloom said the industry group hasn’t been heavily involved in climate change issues. She said the SHIP program will invite experts to UFA board meetings and engage the group in decision-making at the local, state and federal level.When asked to rank several predetermined issues, fishermen contacted in the sruvey said that habitat conservation ranked third behind product quality and fisheries management. Bloom said all three issues were more important to fishermen than the price they got for their catches.“I found that very inspiring that there’s very clear value and recognition that protecting habitat and protecting the resource is more important than the bottom line of what we’re getting paid for salmon during any given season,” Bloom said.When it comes to obtaining information on the commercial industry, most listed Alaska Department of Fish & Game scientists as the most trusted source.“They are closely followed by local and regional fishing groups and then United Fisherman of Alaska,” Bloom said.Fishermen also think the state is doing well in ensuring the stability of salmon fisheries. The survey did not ask about further budget cuts to Fish and Game during the state Legislature’s upcoming session.Bloom said most wanted to stay engaged with the SHIP program via email. Social media was the second choice followed by traditional mail.Bloom said the goal of the program is to focus UFA’s engagement on salmon habitat issues important to Alaska’s fishing fleet, and help fishermen inform decisions and policy.More than 500 people responded to the survey. Bloom said the program is open to everyone, not just UFA members.
What to Expect From the Marvel Cinematic Universe at SDCC 2019The Cinematic Sex of Marvel’s Netflix Universe Stay on target Aside from The Defenders, The Punisher is probably Marvel’s most anticipated Netflix show. That’s for a good reason. Jon Bernthal’s Punisher was by far the best part of Daredevil season two. We’re still a little ways off from the show’s premiere, but Netflix revealed the poster for the Series in Entertainment Weekly ahead of Comic Con 2017. In case you were wondering, Bernthal still looks great as The Punisher.The Punisher (Credit: Marvel, Netflix via Entertainment Weekly)That’s pretty much exactly how you want a Punisher series to look. If that art looks familiar to you, that’s because it’s drawn by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada. The poster will be available for fans to purchase at Marvel’s booth at Comic Con in San Diego.At this point though, the poster just makes us want to see the show. The Punisher premieres on Netflix sometime this fall, following The Defenders‘ premiere on August 18.In other MCU news, a fan found an Easter egg in Spider-Man: Homecoming that implies the Avengers may have inadvertently brought a religion to New York. Specifically, the old Norse religion. The image comes from Reddit user UNITBlackArchive. The scene in question has Peter Parker and Aunt May eating at a Thai restaurant.Spider-Man: Homecoming (Photo: Marvel Studios via Reddit)It’s hard to make out in that photo, but the sign on the side says “Korean Church of Asgard.” It would appear that with the existence of Thor and Loki now being well known on the Earth of the MCU, Asgardian churches have started popping up. That’s an understandable reaction to seeing your city saved from a supernatural threat by the Norse GOd of Thunder.It’s a cool subtle nod to the fact that average New Yorkers are still dealing with that battle in a number of different ways. I love it when the Marvel movies and TV shows do stuff like this. Even if it can get a little silly sometimes. (Like the guy selling bootleg DVDs of “the incident” on the street in Luke Cage.) I wish the MCU would do more stuff like this. The most interesting parts of the old Stan Lee comics were always how normal people reacted to the crazy superheroics going on around them. It’d be cool to see the movies lean into that aspect a little more. Mostly, I just want to know what an Asgardian church service looks like.Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War. (Photo: Screenshot via YouTube)Finally, now that Spider-Man has come out, the Marvel movie we’re really looking forward to is Black Panther. Everything we’ve seen from it at this point looks so cool; it’s a shame we have to wait until February to see it. Black Panther will fight a few of his classic comics villains in the movie, but one had to undergo a few changes to be acceptable in 2017.In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Executive Producer Nate Moore spoke about updating Black Panther’s most iconic foe, Man-Ape. In the comics, Man-Ape, or M’Baku eats and bathed in the blood of white gorillas for strength. He also wears a suit that looks like the body of a white gorilla. Moore said they immediately realized dressing a black man as a gorilla and calling him “Man-Ape” is a real bad look.So first, they never call him Man-Ape in the movie. The character, played by Winston Duke, will only be known as M’Baku. His armor has been redesigned, but as his religious cult still worships the gorilla, there are recognizable elements of the animal in the armor. That’s an important distinction. It looks like a man’s armor. Not an ape costume.“Having a black character dress up as an ape, I think there’s a lot of racial implications that don’t sit well, if done wrong. But the idea that they worship the gorilla gods is interesting because it’s a movie about the Black Panther who, himself, is a sort of deity in his own right,” Moore said. Here’s the armor they came up with.M’Baku (Winston Duke)(Credit: Kwaku Alston/©Marvel Studios 2018 via Entertainment Weekly)That actually looks pretty cool. Moore says that M’Baku will try to overthrow T’Challa because he disagrees with him over Wakanda’s role in the world. M’Baku believes that Wakanda should stay isolated, and thinks T’Challa’s father should never have gone to the United Nations. However, this conflict plays out, after seeing that image I just can’t wait until we get to see more of this movie.Black Panther arrives in theaters February 16, 2018.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
Switzerland’s 17-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer on Monday said he still believed Rafael Nadal was the favourite to win the French Open next month despite the Spanish star’s troubled start to the clay court season.Federer, who took his sole French Open title in 2009, this week is refining his own clay court game at the Istanbul Open, the first ATP World Tour event to be held in Turkey and the first time that Federer has visited the country.But Nadal, who with the exception of Federer’s win has taken every French Open since 2005 to make nine in total, has shown a dip in form over the past weeks, failing to get past the third round at last week’s Barcelona Open. Federer said he believed that Nadal was still the man to beat on the red clay of Roland Garros, along with the in-form Serbian world number one Novak Djokovic. Also Read – Khel Ratna for Deepa and Bajrang, Arjuna for Jadeja“At the French Open, Rafa for me is still the favourite alongside Djokovic who has been playing so well. Even though his (Nadal’s) form is not as good as in previous years, I still believe when the French Open rolls around he is going to be very difficult to beat,” he told a news conference in Istanbul.Federer, 33, is himself looking for his own form on the slower clay after a long hard court season, having lost in the third round to Gael Monfils at the Monte Carlo Masters this month. But he said the Istanbul event was ideal for his preparations. “It’s about getting used to the sliding, deciding how aggressive I want to play,” said the world number two.Federer, who so far has been unable to add to his sole French Open win in 2009 and won his last grand slam at Wimbledon in 2012, acknowledged that this year’s French Open “is clearly a big goal of mine.” “But to play well at the French Open I need confidence. I hope that I can pick that up in Istanbulm,” said the former Swiss world no. 1.
