We play for fame, money, trophies and a lot of things, but we also play to feel a sense of belonging.”“I was captain of Italy, I was captain of Juve. I had a lot more responsibilities for the group. It’s a logical point of life, the normal evolution of a sporting career between 30 and 40,” he added.“When I was young I was different, I did what I wanted.

first_img Tags Share your voice RIP the great Rutger Hauer: an intense, deep, genuine and magnetic actor that brought truth, power and beauty to his films. My personal favorites: Flesh + Blood, Eureka, The Hitcher, Blade Runner, Ladyhawke and Blind Fury. pic.twitter.com/1F2Via3mLY— Guillermo del Toro (@RealGDT) July 24, 2019 Comments In a 2017 interview with Radio Times, Hauer discussed the speech, crediting director Ridley Scott for letting him tweak the script.”I kept two lines, because I thought they were poetic,” he said, referring to the lines mentioning attack ships and C-beams.  “I thought they belonged to this character, because somewhere in his digital head he has poetry, and knows what it is. He feels it! And while his batteries are going, he comes up with the two lines.”The speech has been praised and quoted innumerable times since then. Singer David Bowie even quoted it on a card he sent for his half-brother’s funeral, Rolling Stone reports.”I was hoping to come up with one line where Roy, because he understands he has very little time, expresses one bit of the DNA of life that he’s felt,” Hauer told Radio Times. “How much he liked it. Only one life.”Hauer was a natural brunette, but his hair was bleached a whitish-blond for his Blade Runner role. “The bleach hurts,” he told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune in 1981. “Now I know why some suffer to be blond.” He is survived by his wife Ineke. The couple was together for 50 years.  The actor began his theater career in the Netherlands, made several films in Germany, and then moved to American movies with the Sylvester Stallone 1981 film Nighthawks, following it up with Blade Runner.  In that 1981 Sarasota Herald-Tribune article, he said a Hollywood agent suggested he change his name to something more familiar to Americans, but he declined. “If you’re good enough, people will remember your name,” he told the paper. In addition to Blade Runner, other films included Ladyhawke, The Hitcher, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and Batman Begins. He won a Golden Globe award for the TV movie Escape from Sobibor.As news of Hauer’s death spread, both his famous friends and regular fans alike remembered him online. Director Guillermo del Toro called him “an intense, deep, genuine and magnetic actor that brought truth, power and beauty to his films.”  Many of Rutger Hauer’s more memorable roles saw him playing villains, but I’ve always really loved his performance in Hobo With a Shotgun. It’s a gory grindhouse throwback at the end of the day, but Hauer really elevates it with his heartbreaking work as the title character. pic.twitter.com/7Yyl336Tw8— John Squires (@FreddyInSpace) July 24, 2019center_img 3 TV and Movies Originally published July 24, 10:40 a.m. PT.  RIP Rutger Hauer 🙏 I had the honor of working with him in ‘Surviving The Game’ https://t.co/o2cQgBF9l2— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) July 24, 2019 NurPhoto/Corbis via Getty Images Actor Rutger Hauer, best known for playing Roy Batty in the original 1982 Blade Runner film, has died at 75. A charity he established, the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association, announced that Hauer died on July 19 at his home after a short illness. The association is a nonprofit focusing on helping children and pregnant women with HIV/AIDS. His funeral was held Wednesday, Variety reports. A representative for Hauer didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Hauer delivered the famed “tears in rain” death monologue in Blade Runner, a speech he helped tweak for the screen. “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe,” Hauer says as Batty, a replicant being hunted by Harrison Ford’s character Rick Deckard. “Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.” This is one of my favorite outtakes that we dug up during the BLADE RUNNER Final Cut restoration: Rutger Hauer giving such a tremendous performance, that even Harrison Ford (who was understandably fed-up with the shoot at this point) gave Rutger an affectionate “atta boy.” https://t.co/Cmnx4X0uE1— Charles de Lauzirika (@Lauzirika) July 24, 2019last_img read more

first_imgIndian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with U.S President Donald Trump in 2018AFPUS President Donald Trump has once again slammed India’s high import tariff on American motorcycles, including Harley-Davidson. Trump has said that the US cannot be fooled under his leadership.”We’re not the foolish country that does so badly. You look at India, a very good friend of mine, Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi, you take a look at what they’ve done, 100 per cent tax on a motorcycle. We charge them nothing,” he said.Citing his disapproval on the issue of exports of Harley-Davidson motorcycles to India and his conversation with PM Modi, he said, “So when Harley sends over there, they have 100 per cent tax. When they (India) send in, they make a tremendous number of motorcycles when they send them in, no tax. I called him. I said it’s unacceptable.” The US President further said that while PM Modi reduced the tariff by 50 per cent after his phone call, the issue is still there. “I said it’s still unacceptable because it’s 50 per cent versus nothing. It’s still unacceptable. And they’re working on it,” he said.Trump also went on to claim that the “power” of the US is that of a bank which everyone wants to rob. “That’s what they’ve been doing for a long period of time,” he said. “$800 billion we have in trade deficits with other countries. So you tell me who made those deals.”In February 2018, India had slashed the customs duty on imported motorcycles like Harley-Davidson to 50 per cent after the US threatened to impose retaliatory taxes.According to the US Trade Representative, India is the ninth-largest good’s trading partner of the US and last year, India-US bilateral trade stood at $142.1 billion.While the trade of both the country’s goods was $87.5 billion, the US President has had his eyes fixed on the $21.3 billion (in 2018) U.S. goods trade deficit with India. The matter has been at the forefront since 2017.last_img read more

first_imgAlso Wednesday, AT&T set Oct. 29 as the date for an investor presentation that will offer details about HBO Max launch plans.  The presentation will be held on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank. Stephenson said WarnerMedia would offer more “visibility” at the presentation into HBO’s growth trajectory with subscriber growth via the standalone HBO Now service and from the new breed of digital MVPDs.HBO saw linear subscriber losses in the second quarter — a surprise given that the period encompassed the final season airing of “Game of Thrones” and an indication that HBO’s nine-month (and counting) blackout on DirecTV rival Dish Network is taking a toll. “We added a lot of digital (HBO) subscribers” thanks to “Game of Thrones,” Stephenson asserted.Stephenson once again emphasized to analysts that the marriage of content and distribution via AT&T’s wireless networks was the key driver of the telco’s acquisition of Time Warner, which closed near the end of the second quarter last year. He added that DirecTV’s high-end customer base will also be a natural driver for HBO Max subscriptions.“HBO Max will be a key part of this wireless strategy as we get into next year — pairing unique premium video content with our wireless, TV and broadband business,” Stephenson said. “HBO Max is going to be something special in the marketplace.”AT&T also plans to begin testing out what it calls a “thin client product” dubbed AT&T TV that will offer broadband service and a limited number of channels. It appears to be AT&T’s response to the fast- declining subscriber base of DirecTV Now, the lower-cost streaming platform launched in late 2017.AT&T TV “will be the workhorse over the next couple of years,” Stephenson said, noting that it will offer “a lower price point to shore up this customer base over the next couple of years.”Investors seemed impressed with AT&T’s results, announced before the market opened.

first_imgThe found abundance pattern in 68 Tauri: circles (Adelman and al.), dots (this work). Credit: Martinet et al., 2017. Located some 150 light years from the Earth, 68 Tauri is a binary star in the Hyades open cluster. With an effective temperature of 9,025 K and a mass of nearly 2.3 solar masses, it is the hottest and most massive member of this cluster.68 Tauri was initially classified as main-sequence star of spectral type A. However, subsequent observations have shown that it is a chemically peculiar metallic-line star (Am star) due to its distinct underabundance of scandium and overabundances of the iron-peak and heavy elements.Given that the last abundance analysis of 68 Tauri was performed in 2003, Sebastien Martinet of the Grenoble Alps University and Richard Monier of the Paris Observatory decided to conduct a new study with the aim of learning more about the composition of this star. The researchers used updated atomic data hoping to redetermine and expand the star’s chemical composition.”We have modeled the high resolution SOPHIE (R=75000) spectrum of 68 Tauri using updated model atmosphere and spectrum synthesis to derive chemical abundances in its atmosphere. In particular, we have studied the effect of the inclusion of the hyperfine structure of various barium isotopes on the determination of the baryum abundance in 68 Tauri. We have also derived new abundances using updated accurate atomic parameters retrieved from the NIST database,” the paper reads.The new analysis allowed the scientists to determine abundances of 68 Tauri more accurately, improving our understanding of chemical composition of this star.For instance, the team found that 68 Tauri exhibits underabundance of scandium and slight underabundances in carbon, oxygen, magnesium, silicon and calcium, mild overabundances of the iron-peak elements and large overabundances of the rare-earth elements.Furthermore, as a result of including hyperfine structure of various isotopes of Barium, they found that the abundance of this element is significantly lower when compared to the study published in 2003. According to the study, this highlights the importance of hyperfine structure in such analyses.”We find a large difference on the barium abundance when including the full hyperfine structure. (…) We stress the importance of taking into account the hyperfine structure for all isotopes when available in order to derive accurate abundances,” the researchers wrote in the paper.When it comes to abundances of other elements, the new study shows that they are consistent with the values presented in the previous study, except for scandium. The authors noted that the newly determined values generally differ from 0.01 dex up to 0.4 dex as a result of adopting new atomic data, confirming that 68 Tauri is a chemically peculiar Am star.
