Tenet Blu-Ray, Digital Release Date Set for December — but Not in India

first_imgTenet will be available on Blu-ray and digital storefronts in December, Warner Bros. has announced. The exact dates are December 14 in the UK, December 15 in the US, and December 16 in Australia. This doesn’t include India as it only applies to markets where the Christopher Nolan film released theatrically in August or September. Tenet still doesn’t have a theatrical release date in India, though the epic time-bending espionage movie is expected to premiere in the country before the end of the year. It might even happen in November, now that Maharashtra (the state with the highest number of screens) has given the go ahead for cinemas to reopen.Christopher Nolan Is Making a Mistake With Tenet- Advertisement – Of course, there’s no way to stop you from buying Tenet digitally on an international store. Imported Blu-rays are also regularly available on Amazon and Flipkart. Warner Bros. will open Tenet Blu-ray and digital pre-orders on November 10. In the US, the UK, and Australia, Tenet will be available digitally on Amazon Video, Apple TV (formerly iTunes Store), DirecTV, Google Play Movies / YouTube Movies, FandangoNOW, Fetch TV, Microsoft Store, Rakuten TV, Redbox, Sky Store, Talk Talk TV, Telstra TV, and Vudu, depending on whichever are available in your region. On disc, Tenet will be on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.Shot largely with IMAX cameras, Tenet will be available in 2.20:1 aspect ratio with some scenes in 1.78:1 at native 4K (2160p) resolution. There’s no Dolby Atmos track on the Tenet Blu-ray, which is in keeping with Nolan’s preference for lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. There’s no support for Dolby Vision HDR too, but you do get HDR10, for what it’s worth. Tenet 4K UHD Blu-ray will come with three discs: one for the Tenet 4K HDR version, one for the full-HD version, and the third for extras. Warner Bros. has announced just one feature as yet — “Looking at the World in a New Way: The Making of Tenet, an hour-long exploration of the development and production of the film as told by the cast and crew.”Tenet is out on Blu-ray and digital December 14 in the UK, December 15 in the US, and December 16 in Australia. Warner Bros. India operates with a two-month window between theatrical and Blu-ray, so don’t expect Tenet to be officially available on disc and digital before January 2021.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

France confirms first case of ruinous tomato virus

first_imgTomato plants in France’s far-west Finistere region have been contaminated with a destructive virus that can lead to whole crops being wasted, the agriculture ministry said on Monday.A farm had been isolated and greenhouses full of tomatoes would be destroyed, as there is no known treatment, it said.The tomato brown rugose fruit virus, known as ToBRFV, leads to rough discoloured patches on the fruit that render it unsellable — and officials warned earlier that its spread would have “major economic consequences” for farmers. The virus, which is not harmful to humans, was first reported in 2014 at greenhouses in Israel before it spread to Europe and America.”We have received the results from the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety of the samples from the Finistere and… they have been contaminated by the virus,” the ministry said.  Growers in Spain and Italy — the EU’s biggest tomato producers — have been affected, as have some in the US and Mexico, and Britain announced its first cases last July.Germany managed to eradicate an outbreak in several greenhouses by ripping out the plants and destroying them, and then treating the soil with disinfectants.France promised in early February to carry out hundreds of checks on plants and seeds, on top of regular inspections.Topics :last_img read more

More than a woman in business: Shinta Kamdani talks leadership in economy

first_imgYou are one of the members of the omnibus bill on job creation task force. What is your take on commentators who say that the bill is more beneficial for business players than it is for workers? We need the omnibus bill because Indonesia is having difficulties in attracting investors and we are experiencing a current account deficit (CAD) over the past five years. Unemployment is rising and we need to be able to provide enough jobs.The omnibus bill on job creation is a breakthrough in the sense that it could simplify regulations and it is important because it can help attract more investments that can help create jobs and prosperity. The omnibus bill is pro-government and for the greater good. It is a misnomer when people say the bill is more beneficial for businesses. I think that if Indonesia’s investment environment is favorable and small and medium enterprises can grow, this is all beneficial for the Indonesian people. It needs to be clarified that this bill is not only for business players. It helps Indonesia grow. Topics : Question: You are often referred to as an influential woman. What is your take on that and how do you use your influence to create good business practice?Answer: I don’t see myself as only a woman in business, but I am also a business leader. I am also a deputy chairwoman for international relations at the Indonesia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) and I think a lot of things I do is not just for my own business but to support the country’s trade, investment ecosystem and economic growth. Unfortunately, there are still only a few female business leaders in Indonesia because the problem is not only how to attract women to enter the workforce but also how to encourage them to have the willingness to become leaders. They face many challenges, especially regarding work-life balance where they are expected to do all the domestic chores even if they have a job.This motivates me to push women into becoming professional leaders or entrepreneurs by conducting mentoring programs, initiating the Indonesia Business Coalition for Women Empowerment (IBCWE) organization and establishing the Angel Investment Network Indonesia (Angin) a venture company that emphasizes women entrepreneurs.  Sintesa is the first business group to be certified with Economic Dividend for Gender Equality (EDGE) certification and there is no gender pay gap in the Sintesa group. We make it easier for women by providing lactation rooms and we are developing daycare too so women can work with ease. However, we are seeing more men with a desire to be involved in domestic affairs such as taking their kids to school. Read also: In ASEAN, gender equality still very much a ‘tick-the-box’ issueYou were named one of the chairpersons of the United Nations’ Global Investors for Sustainable Development Alliance (GISD Alliance) last year. Can you share with us your role in the alliance?The GISD alliance aims to create business models for investment initiatives in sustainable development. 30 business leaders chair the alliance, three of which are from Asia and I am one of them. I was chosen because I have been championing SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals] in Indonesia for a long time. I’ve initiated the Indonesian Business Coalition on Sustainable Development that helps businesses incorporate some of the SDG values. At the Sintesa group, we have an Urban Food Security program in support of sustainable production and consumption. We uphold gender equality and we only deal with renewable and clean energy.With that in mind, maybe the United Nations saw me as a good example and a good fit to chair the alliance. Indonesia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) deputy chairman for international relations Shinta Widjaja Kamdani (left) and US ASEAN Business Council senior vice president Michael W. Michalak sign agreement to enhance collaboration to help better investment climate in Indonesia in this file photo. (JP/Stefani Ribka)What is Sintesa Group’s plan for 2020?First, we want to continue being a sustainably excellent company by integrating Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in our business model. Secondly, we are going to focus on consumers in e-commerce in the digital economy sector. In our property sector, we want to focus on the Likupang Special Economic Zone (SEZ) project so we will hold our hotel’s expansion for the meantime. Meanwhile, we are in the middle of drilling a new geothermal source.We have four business sectors and each of them has a specific target but the key is investing in human capital. I believe that with proper training for our human resources, we can anticipate economic uncertainties and all the challenges this year may bring.   We are planning to undertake an initial public offering (IPO) for two of our other companies.The first one is an energy subsidiary and an IPO will be held shortly. Sintesa also plans to carry out an IPO for our property subsidiary but it is still in our midterm plan because the property market is quite unstable right now.Read also: Likupang awaits its time in the tourism sun Sintesa through the Minahasa Permai Resort Development will play a part in developing the Likupang Special Economic Zone (SEZ). Can you share with us about Sintesa’s plans for the SEZ project?This is our first involvement in the government SEZ project that we got last year. We partnered with the regional government to develop 600 hectares of land in which 200 hectares would be designated for conservation purposes.Our program aims to create eco-tourism in the area. In the first stage, we will develop basic infrastructure on 200 hectares of land such as creating a master plan for an eco-resort and a cultural village. The area will be powered by geothermal energy. As for waste management, we have coordinated with the Environment Ministry to apply good waste management and create water treatment plans.  There will be residential areas and apartments too, but these are all long-term projects.Read also: Guide to omnibus bill on job creation: 1,028 pages in 10 minutes Being a businesswoman in an industry dominated by men has inspired Sintesa Group CEO Shinta Kamdani to open more doors for women to not just work but also to become leaders in Indonesia’s business community.To commemorate International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8, The Jakarta Post’s Eisya A. Eloksari sat down with the deputy chairman of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) on Feb. 19 to talk about her group’s effort to support female workers.

Michael O’Neill confident suspensions will not hurt Northern Ireland

first_imgMichael O’Neill is confident Northern Ireland’s Euro 2016 dream will not be derailed by suspensions next month. Lafferty and McLaughlin both picked up their second bookings of the campaign on Monday night, while Baird was sent off in a curious incident that saw him earn two cautions in the same passage of play. The Irish Football Association subsequently said it had sought clarification over Baird’s dismissal and had been informed by the International Football Association Board that the decision was “the correct one”. The limited player pool available to Northern Ireland means they can sometimes struggle to paper over such cracks, but O’Neill believes he has able deputies in all three positions. “You have to be able to deal with suspensions, that’s the nature of international football,” he said. “We have options. Kyle being out is a blow, of course it is, but someone else will step up. “We’ve seen little glimpses of what Josh Magennis can offer up front: he’s a physical presence, he’s powerful and I don’t think people fully appreciate what he gives to this squad. “With Conor, we have Aaron Hughes who has played right-back, Paddy McNair can play there too and he is also an option in the middle of the pitch where Bairdy plays. “Hopefully we’ll be stronger in other areas come October too, Jamie Ward will hopefully be back from injury and Jonny Evans will have more minutes under his belt by then. Press Association A first major tournament in 30 years remains on the cards for O’Neill over-performing fifth seeds, after Kyle Lafferty’s injury-time equaliser against Hungary kept them top of Group F with two to play. A home win against Greece at Windsor Park in October would seal the deal regardless of other results, but that would have to be achieved without seven-goal top-scorer Lafferty, right-back Conor McLaughlin and holding midfielder Chris Baird. “Overall there’s a lot to be positive about.” Kilmarnock forward Magennis undoubtedly has the biggest boots to fill. Lafferty has been a revelation in qualifying, with only Poland’s Robert Lewandowski and Germany’s Thomas Muller bettering his goals tally – not bad company for a player who was surplus to requirements at Norwich last season and has yet to play domestically due to injury this term. Magennis has played 14 times for his country, but has started just once and has yet to open his account. Now he is hoping to guarantee a starting spot by hitting form with his club in the coming weeks. “I might be the front-runner to replace Kyle but we have Billy McKay and Will Grigg too,” he told Press Association Sport. “We all have four weeks of domestic football now and it’s up to us to do what we can to show we’re ready for Greece. “I started off playing the last five or maybe 10 minutes for Northern Ireland, but recently it’s been 15 or 20 and that is a progression for me. “If Michael chooses to give me 90 in the next game I know I’ve got it in me to get that goal. “It’s up to me to do as much as I can to make sure I’m feeling right and in my absolute best shape.” Goalkeeper Michael McGovern, whose dreadful handling error gave Hungary a 1-0 lead, fronted up to his mistake and thanked Lafferty for sparing his blushes. “It was relief all round, not just for me but for everyone,” he said. “I’m not a bad goalkeeper because I made a mistake; I’m just a goalkeeper who made a mistake. “If we hadn’t scored I would have been the villain but we got the goal and that’s all that matters. “It’s never over until it’s over and big Kyle came up trumps again.” last_img read more
