Not a Hard-Knock Life: Taylor Richardson Follows Lilla Crawford to Hollywood

first_img Written and directed by J. C. Chandor (Margin Call, All Is Lost), A Most Violent Year is set in New York City in 1981, statistically one of the city’s most violent years, and follows a struggling immigrant family that collides with the city’s underbelly. Richardson will play one of the daughters of Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) and Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis). Albert Brooks, David Oyelowo (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Catalina Sandino Moreno and Christopher Abbott (Girls) are also featured in the film. Looks like the role of little orphan Annie has become the new launching pad to Hollywood! Following in the footsteps of Lilla Crawford, who plays Little Red Ridinghood in the upcoming Into the Woods film, successor Taylor Richardson has landed a role in the now-filming drama A Most Violent Year. Richardson opened in the 2012 Broadway revival of Annie in the role of Duffy. After play that feisty orphan for almost nine months, she began sharing the lead role with co-star Sadie Sink on July 30, 2013 and eventually took it over completely prior to Annie’s closing earlier this month. Like Into the Woods, A Most Violent Year is expected in theaters before the end of 2014 for award season contention. Go Annies! Check out our fun video interview with Richardson from 2012!

Mining investment to fall short by 40 percent this year: Energy ministry

first_imgPrior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the energy ministry expected four new smelters to start operations this year.However, only two smelters – a ferronickel smelter and lead bullion smelter – are slated for completion in 2020, energy ministry mineral director Yunus Saefulhak told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.The remaining two smelters – a nickel pig iron (NPI) smelter and a ferromanganese smelter – have had their expected operational dates pushed back to 2021 from 2020.“We have to be realistic. We will help those facilities that proceed with their development,” he said, adding that his office continued to find investors and electricity suppliers, among other things, for the delayed smelter projects. Investment in the mining industry is expected to fall short by US$4.74 billion this year, 40 percent of the initial target, as a result of delays in several smelter projects, the Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ministry has said.Lockdowns at various levels applied in many countries around the world to contain the spread of COVID-19 have disrupted material and labor supplies for the projects, adding more issues to developers’ financial problems, said the ministry’s coal director, Sujatmiko.“Smelter construction will only resume in July 2020,” he said during a webinar hosted by Cerah Foundation on Tuesday. Topics :center_img The pandemic-led investment shortfalls have added further delays to Indonesia’s ambitious smelter-development plan, which is part of a larger plan to transform the mineral-rich country from a commodity-driven economy to an industrial economy.Among the bigger smelter projects facing delays are those being developed by state-owned mining holding company MIND ID, officially PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Inalum), and its subsidiaries.“Our partners cannot operate [normally] so that automatically means there will be delays whether we like it or not,” said MIND ID president director Orias Petrus Moerdak on Tuesday.Some of the projects are expected to fully resume in October, added Orias, who was speaking before House of Representatives lawmakers in Jakarta. Meanwhile, the other projects resumed early work this month.MIND ID subsidiary PT Aneka Tambang (Antam), a diversified miner, has put on hold a 98 percent complete $289 million ferronickel smelter in East Halmahera, Maluku, because of a lack of electricity.Antam president director Dana Amin said the miner initially enlisted private consortium BGP to develop a power plant for the smelter but ended the deal because of “financial problems”.“There was a lack of risk management,” he said.Meanwhile, fellow subsidiary PT Timah, a tin miner, has brought in construction equipment to the site of its $80 million tin smelter in West Bangka, Bangka Belitung province.“They are still waiting for an opportunity for the contractors to enter Bangka,” said Orias, adding that developers were focused on designing the facility in the meantime.PT Freeport Indonesia, a gold and copper miner, has requested a one-year delay in the completion deadline of its $3 billion smelter in Gresik, East Java, to 2023.last_img read more

New start date for virus-delayed Olympic torch relay

first_imgThe postponement of the Games has caused major logistical problems and extra expense for organizers.As a result, organizers have been forced to identify a raft of cost-cutting measures, that will include smaller vehicle convoys for the torch relay and a simpler launch event.The postponed Games are scheduled to open in Tokyo on July 23, 2021. The relay will now start on March 25, 2021, beginning in the Fukushima region hit by nuclear disaster after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.The relay, which will see the flame travel to all 47 prefectures of Japan, is being organized under the slogan “Hope Lights Our Way” and was intended to highlight reconstruction in areas devastated by the 2011 disaster.”In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will additionally symbolize the light at the end of the dark tunnel; a beacon of hope for the world in the run-up to the Tokyo 2020 Games, themselves a symbol of the resilience, the unity and the solidarity of humankind,” organizers said in a statement.The route and the schedule for the relay will remain the same “in principle,” though the statement noted that the route and celebration venues “may be reviewed in light of the COVID-19 situation.” The Tokyo 2020 torch relay, which was put on hold when the Olympics were delayed over the coronavirus, will start next March from Japan’s Fukushima region, organizers said Monday.The Olympic flame had already arrived in Japan from Greece and the relay was days from beginning earlier this year when organizers and Olympic officials took the historic decision to postpone the Games by 12 months.The flame is currently on display in Tokyo.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Jose Mourinho’s entourage urge him to choose Arsenal over Real Madrid

Ian Wright picks his Arsenal starting XI vs Manchester CityArsene Wenger explains why Mikel Arteta is ‘lucky’ to be managing ArsenalBut according to the Times, Mourinho’s entourage believe Arsenal would represent the better choice should the Special One be faced with a direct decision between the two teams.The expectations at the club are not as high as they are in Madrid, while Mourinho would also be faced with winning round supporters that turned against him during his first stint in the Spanish capital between 2010 and 2013.There’s also a belief that Mourinho could eek out more from this Arsenal side than Emery currently is. The Portuguese was full of praise for the Gunners’ front three of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe earlier this season during a punditry stint with SkySports. Jose Mourinho has been advised to join Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Those closest to Jose Mourinho have encouraged the Portuguese coach to opt for Arsenal instead of Real Madrid as he eyes a route back into management.Reports this weekend claim Mourinho held talks with the Arsenal heirachy over the possibility of replacing Unai Emery at the Emirates.Raul Sanllehi is said to have dined with Mourinho last week to ascertain his thoughts on Arsenal’s squad and what his plans would be for the Gunners.Mourinho’s previous relationship with Mesut Ozil and his public praise of record signing Nicolas Pepe are both said to be pivotal elements of the Gunners’ desire to hire the former Manchester United coach, while they also want a manager with a better grasp of English than Emery.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Mourinho has praised Arsenal’s front three (Picture: Getty)‘I think they are very good players and normally they should be on the pitch all three together,’ said Mourinho.‘I think Aubameyang probably he likes to play in the middle because he feels if he’s in the middle he can score more goals. But maybe he can score as many goals playing on the left. What happens at Liverpool is [Roberto] Firmino drops back, drops in between the lines, and then he gives more space for [Mohamed] Salah and [Sadio] Mane to attack these diagonals. I would see Aubameyang playing on that left side of Liverpool and scoring a lot of goals.‘At Arsenal, Lacazette doesn’t have that quality, but they have two options. One is to play, instead of like today with three midfield players almost in a straight line, to play how they played in the last 10 or 20 minutes with two [sitting midfielders] and one No.10 that can feed the three without bringing Lacazette in between the lines’.MORE: Paul Pogba reacts to Manchester United’s defeat to Bournemouth Advertisement Commentlast_img read more
