Kabir Singh works wonders in Andhra Pradesh Telangana and Tamil Nadu

first_imgKabir Singh stillYouTube ScreenshotShahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh, which is an adaptation of hit Telugu movie Arjun Reddy, has worked wonders at the box office in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana (AP/TS) and Tamil Nadu in its opening weekend.Made on a budget of Rs 4 crore, Arjun Reddy had fetched Rs 6 crore for its producers from the sale of its global theatrical rights. The movie grossed over Rs 50 crore at the worldwide box office in its lifetime and earned Rs 25.80 crore for its distributors. After seeing the response, Sandeep Reddy Vanga decided to remake it in Hindi as Kabir Singh and thought the universal appeal will help it become a hit too.Its promos had generated a huge amount of curiosity about Kabir Singh. After seeing the hype, many felt that the movie would strike a chord with the audience in north India and become a big hit at the box office. But none expected it to fare well in ticket counters down south, as the filmgoers have already watched the original version.Everyone thought that they may not spend money on its Hindi version as it is a frame to frame copy of the original film and offers nothing new to the viewers. But to their surprise, Kabir Singh registered good advance booking and opened to a fantastic response. The word of mouth drove the mass crazy towards theatres.Kabir Singh has collected Rs 4 crore net at the AP/TS box office in three days and its collection is on par with the first weekend business of its original version Arjun Reddy in the Telugu states. Jalapathy Gudelli‏, a film critic from Hyderabad, tweeted, “Correction: #KabirSingh collects Rs 70 Cr in its first weekend. First Sunday record in 2019. Surprise: Rs 4 Cr came from Nizam+AP region.”Tamil Nadu is not a potential market for Hindi films, but Kabir Singh has collected Rs 1.20 crore net at the TN box office in its opening weekend. Sreedhar Pillai‏, a film critic from Chennai, tweeted, “#KabirSingh 3 day total business in Tamil Nadu,(the smallest market for Hindi films in India)- ₹1.21 Cr gross, nett ₹92 lakhs! Superb @shahidkapoor film breaks into market dominated by #Khans.”The Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer also fared a well in the theatres across Karnataka and Kerala, but the distributors are yet to reveal the figures. The south Indian total is likely to be closer to Rs 10 crore.Kabir Singh has collected Rs 70.83 crore net at the Indian box office and its day-wise breakup is Rs 20.21 crore on Friday, Rs 22.71 crore on Saturday and Rs 27.91 crore on Sunday.last_img read more

Kapil Sharma Show Kangana Ranaut wants to ban a few journalists

first_imgKapil Sharma, Kangana RanautTwitterKangana Ranaut has remained unfazed by the ban imposed by the Entertainment Journalists’ Guild of India (EJG) post the actress’ verbal altercation with a journalist. She has been promoting her upcoming Judgementall Hai Kya and had been explaining why she relatiated to the journalist and what problems does she have with a certain section of the media. So when Kangana appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show, Kangana said that she would like to ban a few journalists in the know.During the interaction, Kapil Sharma took a dig at the media ban on Kangana Ranaut saying that nowadays anyone wants to ban someone for some reason. He then asked Kangana who she would like to ban if given a choice. To which, she replied, “I know a few of the journalists in my list who I would like to ban.”Earlier, Kapil too was involved in an abusive spat against a journalist whom according to the comedian was writing only negative things about him. Later, Kapil had also filed an FIR against the journalist post which the latter refrained from writing any articles about the former following the court’s decision.Meanwhile, EJG has boycotted Kangana from media coverage until she issues a public apology for everything that transpired between her and the journalist at Judgementall Hai Kya song launch event.Kangana, however, not just only refused to apologise to the section of the media but also slammed them in a video message calling them as ‘termites’, ‘pseudo’, ‘traitors’ and ‘tenth-fail’. And even sent a legal notice to EJG through her lawyer for wrongfully supporting the journalist without any provocation.last_img read more

In the Streaming Age Does Musics Q4 Matter Anymore

first_img Popular on Variety The fourth quarter — the music business’s traditional cash-in period coinciding with the holiday season — is well under way. But while in the past, record labels backloaded their schedule with superstar releases targeting Black Friday and beyond, Christmas 2018 paints a different picture.A look at the albums coming out between now and December shows some anticipated releases — Interscope’s “A Star Is Born” soundtrack, the latest from Twenty One Pilots, Alessia Cara, Lil Wayne and Elle King. Grammy nominations, which will be announced Dec. 5, could boost chart position for albums released earlier in the year. Otherwise, were it not for posthumous collections from the likes of Prince and Tom Petty and some premium items aimed at baby boomers, one might think Santa was boycotting music-gifting entirely. “Q4 has been losing share since Apple introduced iTunes in 2001.”Jim UrieAccording to Mark Pinkus, a labelveteran of more than 25 years and president of Rhino Entertainment, Warner Music Group’s U.S. catalog division, the holidays are still a time to sell. “This sure feels like a typical fourth quarter for us,” he says. “Our ability to put out big, beautiful, well-curated box sets still has a marketplace. Physical is not a declining business for Rhino.”Pinkus points to a wide array of physical offerings featuring both vinyl and CDs from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and the Eagles as well as deluxe 40th-anniversary editions of the Doors’ “Waiting for the Sun” and the Ramones’ “Road to Ruin.” There’s even a new Monkees Christmas album featuring songs written by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and XTC’s Andy Partridge.For new original releases, the immediacy of streaming has made long-range planning or even traditional marketing unnecessary, particularly if an artist is big enough. And digital distributors don’t seem to market specifically for the holidays. “The consumer wants everything now,” says one old-school music sales exec. “We’re no longer selling a product but an experience, an emotion.”Amy Dietz, exec VP and general manager at Ingrooves, suggests, “There should be a streaming equivalent to [the 1980’s campaign] Give the Gift of Music.”Pinkus, however, says Rhino’s digital partners have been attentive. “We’re in daily contact with our reps at Spotify, Apple, Pandora and YouTube,” he insists. “Amazon Unlimited is a huge partner for us. Every day someone is asking Alexa to play Led Zeppelin. They have a great team over there — creative music people. They listen when we come to them with our market research.”Yet Urie notes another reason that music buying is no longer seasonal. “The boost in sales these days comes from kids getting new devices and filling them with apps,” he says, adding that an Apple gift card earns retailers almost 10% for each one racked and sold. “The industry,” he says, “has to take a long, hard look at what the holidays mean, and how it releases records.” “Forty percent of our business [used to be] done between Thanksgiving and Christmas,” says Republic Records chairman/CEO Monte Lipman. His roster includes such heavyweights as Drake, whose most recent album “Scorpion” was released June 29; Ariana Grande, who released “Sweetener” Aug. 17; and Nicki Minaj, who dropped “Queen” Aug. 10. “This year, the majority of our business was between April and September,” he adds. “Consumer behavior has changed.” Seems today’s Q4 is January and August, one could reason.Jim Urie, the onetime head of Universal Music Group Distribution, now a special adviser to the board and a minority owner of Concord Music Group, says streaming began to disrupt the seasonal music business the instant it became an option. “Q4 has been losing share since Apple introduced iTunes in 2001,” he explains.Per Nielsen Music, about a quarter of the top 20 albums of the previous two decades, including Shania Twain’s “Come On Over,” The Beatles’ “Beatles 1,” and Linkin Park’s “Hybrid Theory,” as well as the “Bodyguard” and “Titanic” soundtracks, were released in October and November.The advent of streaming, and the simultaneous cratering of the brick-and-mortar record retail business, has turned the music industry into more of a 12-months-a-year enterprise. Big box retailer Best Buy stopped carrying CDs, albums and DVDs this summer (though, ironically, vinyl still remains), leaving only Walmart and Target to still carry physical product.In a curious twist, vinyl has proven to be among the more robust sectors to emerge in the past decade (even Walmart is in the process of adding LPs to its inventory for the holiday season) and that’s thanks to elaborate (read: collectible) packaging as well as a variety of configurations and price points. For instance, Rhino’s forthcoming Grateful Dead set, “Pacific Northwest ’73-’74: The Complete Recordings,” is available as a 19-disc physical box set ($189.98), a 19-disc download ($149.99), a three-CD “best of the box” ($24.98) and a digital download “best of” ($14.99). Multiple pricing schemes also exist for Reprise’s Tom Petty collection “An American Treasure.” Look for other important boomer reissues, like UMe’s the Beatles’ “White Album” and the latest edition of Sony’s Bob Dylan bootleg series, to hit in the holiday season. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Certain test strips used with homeuse devices may provide inaccurate results warns

first_img Source:https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm624904.htm Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Nov 2 2018The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today is warning patients and doctors, who use at-home or in-the-office medical devices to monitor levels of the blood thinner, warfarin, that certain test strips used with the devices may provide inaccurate results and should not be relied upon to adjust the drug dosage. Roche Diagnostics issued a voluntary recall of certain test strip lots used with its CoaguChek test meter devices. The recall involves more than 1.1 million packages of CoaguChek XS PT Test Strips that were distributed nationwide from Jan. 12, 2018 to Oct. 29, 2018. Today, the FDA announced this action as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall, which means use of these devices may cause serious injuries or death.The FDA is warning patients and health care professionals that they should not rely on these test meter devices to monitor warfarin levels if they’re using test strips affected by the recall. Instead, they should have blood drawn from a vein and have their levels measured by a laboratory test or use an alternative meter device.”These strips are widely used and we are working diligently to warn health care providers and the public about the dangers associated with this recall. Using faulty strips can lead to serious errors in medication dosage that could cause serious harm or death in some patients,” said Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. “We are also working with the company on the swift removal of the recalled strips and to ensure the new corrected strips are distributed to patients and health care providers as quickly as possible.”Millions of Americans take the blood thinner warfarin (also known by the brand names Coumadin and Jantoven) to prevent and treat blood clots. The drug may be prescribed for patients with certain types of irregular heartbeats, blood clots in the legs or lungs, or certain medical device implants such as artificial heart valves. Achieving the correct warfarin dosage is crucial, and patients need regular monitoring to test how long it takes their blood to clot. The response is measured by a blood test to check the International Normalized Ratio, or INR. This test can be performed by an accredited laboratory on blood drawn from a vein or with a fingerstick blood draw using an INR test meter at home or in a doctor’s office.The FDA’s warning concerning the CoaguChek XS PT Test Strips is based on medical device reports submitted by Roche Diagnostics to the agency indicating that the test strips may provide results that are higher than the actual INR. As a result of incorrect INR results, some patients may be prescribed an insufficient warfarin dose or instructed to interrupt warfarin use, which may increase the risk for dangerous blood clots. Approximately 90 medical device reports and two serious patient injuries involving strokes were reported to the FDA.Related StoriesScientists turn type A blood into universal type O, potentially doubling blood transfusion stocksBlood stem cell breakthrough could spare some patients from side effects of cancer treatmentsRadiometer’s ABL9 blood gas analyzer awarded Red Dot Design AwardIncorrect INR results are of particular concern for individuals at an increased risk of blood clots including those with mechanical heart valves, atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) who are at a high risk of stroke, or those who had a recent blood clot. It is important to note that problems with the CoaguChek XS PT test strips are not likely to be evident to the patient.Roche Diagnostics attributes the cause of the problem to a recent re-calibration of the test strips to a different international standard that occurred earlier this year. They plan to provide new batches of re-calibrated test strips, based on the previous international standard, to their customers by the end of November; the FDA reviewed validation data submitted by the company for these recalibrated strips. The test strips are used with the CoaguChek XS plus, CoaguChek XS Pro, CoaguChek XS professional, CoaguChek XS PST and CoaguChek Vantus test meter devices.Patients who are using CoaguChek meters should contact their health care provider to get information about alternative test methods and to address questions regarding their individual testing schedule. Patients should also contact their patient self-testing service providers to find out when they will be getting their corrected test strips. Health care providers and patients may contact Roche Diagnostics to learn more details about the recall.All health care providers, patients and caregivers, are strongly encouraged to voluntarily report INR test meter problems directly to the FDA through MedWatch, the FDA’s voluntary reporting program. Problems should be reported whenever one suspects that there may be an issue with an INR test meter such as a malfunction or incorrect result, or that the meter caused or contributed to a serious injury or death.The FDA is committed to continuing to communicate publicly on this issue and will provide updates related to this recall when available.last_img read more

Fox rejected an offer from Comcast before Disney buyout filing

Media giant 21st Century Fox, which was sold to Disney in December, rejected a higher buyout offer from Comcast over fears of regulatory risks © 2018 AFP The joint regulatory filing by Fox and Disney said a buyout by cable operator Comcast “carried a more significant risk of exposure to a range of negative outcomes for 21CF” while “a transaction with Disney would provide superior closing certainty as a result of the lower regulatory risk faced by Disney.”The decision came in the wake of the US Department of Justice legal challenge to a mega-merger between Time Warner and AT&T.Comcast also refused to provide compensation if the transaction was blocked by competition authorities, while Disney proposed $2.5 billion.Comcast had offered $34.40 per share compared to Disney’s $29.On December 14, Disney announced the purchase of many of Fox’s assets for $52.4 billion, though a final approval by antitrust authorities is not expected before 2019.Comcast was reported in February to have relaunched its bid, according to reports, offering to assuage some of Fox’s concerns.The media landscape is undergoing accelerated upheaval as traditional TV and film players seek to merge with cable operators to better combat tech giants, including Netflix and Amazon and their video streaming platforms.

What will Oilers Josh Archibald bring to the lineup

first_imgThe Edmonton Oilers have been relatively quiet during free agency, mainly adding depth to their bottom-6. They continued the pattern Tuesday, signing unrestricted free agent Josh Archibald to a one-year deal.Most recently a member of the Coyotes, the 26-year-old had a solid year with Arizona, registering a career-high 12 goals and 22 points in 68 games – doubling his point total from 2017-18, where he had 11 points in 39 appearances. For the Oilers, they get another right wing to add to their depth chart, and a decent one at that; he’s still in the early stages of his career and has shown that he’s capable of producing at the NHL level. While he doesn’t put up the biggest numbers, he does bring a lot more to the lineup than what meets the eye.RELATED: Is Oilers’ Evan Bouchard ready to step into a full-time role?The 5-10, 176 pound winger isn’t the biggest player, but he doesn’t shy away from puck battles. With 161 hits last season with Arizona, Archibald incorporated more aggressiveness and grit into his game. He’s still developing into a physical forward, which has helped his overall two-way game. Additionally, the Oilers need more speed in their lineup beyond their top line forwards and Archibald can provide that. The Saskatchewan native is able to not only beat out his opponents to the puck along the boards and into the corners, but can also get down the ice quickly and backcheck with ease. He’s the type of forward that can keep up with the game around him and hustle if necessary.Not only does Archibald provide solid bottom-6 scoring, but he can also serve on the penalty kill – something the Oilers definitley need as they finished with the second-worst penalty kill in the league (74.8%). A hard-working, dedicated and very coachable player, he’s an asset that can lead by example and help to build a postiive culture in the dressing room.Ultimately, he gives Edmonton more insurance on a weak right side; however, there is still work to be done. The Oilers lacks top-6 scoring beyond Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins – especially on the wing – and have forwards who can score 20 goals consistently. This signing shows a step toward fixing a broken lineup but Ken Holland needs to keep chipping away in rebuilding the lineup.last_img read more

Tiny Fighting Worms Make One of the Loudest Sounds in the Ocean

During these feuds, the worms emit one of the loudest sounds in the ocean, according to a new study. The source of the underwater hullabaloo is a nearly transparent segmented worm called the Leocratides kimuraorum, which lives inside sponges 279 to 554 feet (85 to 169 meters) deep off the coast of Japan. [The 12 Weirdest Animal Discoveries]Advertisement These wigglies are just a tad more than an inch (29 millimeters) long and have lengthy tentacles and a big mouth (literally). These seemingly quiet creatures revealed their true nature under the spotlight in the lab. A group of researchers used an instrument called a hydrophone to record 15 pops that were emitted from three kimuraorums as they were fighting. In a marine feud researchers dub “mouth-fighting,” the worms approached each other headfirst with their mouths open. During such encounters, the worms’ pharynx muscles expand rapidly, creating a cavitation bubble that collapses and produces a loud “pop” while the worms launch into each other. The researchers found that these pops can reach 157 decibels in the water (which is a different measurement than decibels in the air). From right next to the water tank, the pops sounded like humans snapping their fingers, lead author Goto Ryutaro, an assitant professor at Kyoto University told Live Science. “Though they probably sound louder if you hear them in the water.” The worms are as loud as snapping shrimps, which are one of the biggest noisemakers in the ocean, the authors wrote. What’s more, they found that these worms did not make any noise when simply disturbed, they only did so when they were fighting. They “may use mouth-fighting to defend territory or living chambers from other worms,” the authors wrote July 8 in the journal Current Biology. “A loud pop may be a byproduct of the rapid mouth attack, but it may also aid intraspecific communication.” A loud noise could somehow determine the victor of the fight or even reveal the whereabouts of nearby worms, they wrote. 13 Extremely Weird Animal Feet The 10 Strangest Animal Discoveries Strange Love: 10 Animals with Truly Weird Courtship Rituals Originally published on Live Science.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 min and see why everyone is addicted!Vikings: Free Online GameUndoThrone: Free Online GamesIf You’re Over 40 And Own A Computer, This Game Is A Must!Throne: Free Online GamesUndoLivestlyDear Seniors And Retirees, These Dog Breeds Are RecommendedLivestlyUndoAuto Overload25+ Moments Captured When It All Went WrongAuto OverloadUndoNucificTop Dr. Reveals The 1 Nutrient Your Gut Must HaveNucificUndoThe Legacy ReportMan Who Called NVIDIA Rise Makes New 5G PredictionThe Legacy ReportUndolast_img read more

Demand to raise royalty on coal in Rajya Sabha

first_img COMMENT SHARE Published on Demands to raise royalty on coal, roll back of steep hike in airfares between Kerala and Gulf region and government intervention to help release fishermen captured by Pakistan were among issues raised during the Zero Hour in the Rajya Sabha on Monday.Amar Patnaik (BJD) said the rate of royalty paid to state governments on coal produced in states was last changed in April 2012, and as per rule was due to be revised in April 2015, but was not done. “The issue was placed before the GST Council but is yet to be approved,” he said, adding that instead a cess was imposed which goes to indivisible pool that is not devolved to states. He demanded that royalty on coal should be raised to 20 per cent from the current 12 per cent.KK Ragesh (CPM) demanded roll back in steep hike in airfares in the Kerala-Gulf sector which, he said, was a “loot” by airlines by exploiting migrant workers. “While the Calicut-Dubai flight costs Rs 6,000, a Dubai to Calicut flight costs Rs 40,000,” he said, adding airfares are jacked up during festive seasons and holidays when migrant workers seek to return to their hometowns.Jairman Ramesh (Congress) asked the Environment and Forest Ministry to reject clearance to building of a mega port complex in North Chennai which, he said, posed danger to the fragile ecosystem in the region and livelihood of thousands of fishermen.Raising the issue of fishermen languishing in Pakistan jails, V Vijayasai Reddy (YSR-Congress) said that 46 fishermen were captured by Pakistan maritime security agency in October- November last year after illegally entering into Indian waters.According to Pakistan, as many as 483 fishermen are languishing in its jails, he said, adding 22 out of the 46 fishermen captured in October-November 2018 were from Andhra Pradesh who had gone to Gujarat for working on fishing trawlers. “What was the Indian Coast Guard doing when Pakistan intruded into Indian waters?” he asked.He said when the issue was first raised, the then External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had promised to get consular access. “But neither the fishermen were released nor consular access given to families,” he said, asking the Government to urgently intervene to get families consular access.Harnath Singh Yadav (BJP) raised the issue of supply of drinking water which is high in fluoride, nitrate and iron in 336 out of 719 districts in the country and is leading to disorders in humans and animals as well as affecting land infertility.Shanta Chhetri (TMC) raised the issue of death of a person after his hand got stuck between two sliding doors of the Kolkata Metro on Saturday last. She alleged passenger safety was being compromised with by the Railway Ministry and demanded immediate allocation of funds for proper maintenance and upgrade of the metro rail.Satyanarayan Jatiya (BJP) raised the issue of inter-linking of rivers to solve problem of drought. AK Selvaraj (AIADMK) raised a similar demand. Rajya Sabhacenter_img COMMENTS July 15, 2019 SHARE SHARE EMAILlast_img read more
