Google Doodle celebrates colors of artist Paul Klee

first_img Online Post a comment Tags Share your voice 0 Google celebrates Swiss-German artist Paul Klee. Google Paul Klee was a Swiss and German artist known for developing a distinct, individual style, drawing inspiration from a range of artistic movements, including cubism, expressionism and surrealism.He was also prolific, creating about 10,000 paintings, drawings and etchings during his lifetime.To celebrate Klee’s 139th birthday Tuesday, Google is paying homage to the artist’s sometimes dry and sometimes child-like approach with a Doodle reminiscent of Klee’s Rote Brücke (Red Bridge) — a 1928 painting that uses a pattern of shapes and contrasting yet harmonious hues to represent the rooftops and arches of a European city.The painting reflects Klee’s deep exploration of color theory — the mixing of colors and the visual effects of specific color combination. Born in Münchenbuchsee, Switzerland, on December 18, 1879, Klee was the son of a music teacher and Swiss singer. An accomplished violinist at a young age, Klee received an invitation to play with the Bern Music Association at age 11 before turning his attention to the visual arts as a teen.In 1898, Klee began studying art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. By 1905, he had begun to develop experimental techniques, including drawing with a needle on a blackened pane of glass.A natural draftsman, Klee excelled at drawing but seemed to lack a natural feel for color, which for Klee represented optimism in art. During a trip to Paris in 1912, following his exposure to cubism and bold colors of other artists’ work, Klee began experimenting with watercolors and landscapes, lamenting that that “a long struggle lies in store for me in this field of color.”His artistic breakthrough came two years later, when during a visit to Tunisia, Klee was inspired by the light in Tunis and began to delve into the “cool romanticism of abstraction.” He wrote in his diary:  “Color has taken possession of me; no longer do I have to chase after it, I know that it has hold of me forever… Color and I are one. I am a painter.”When he returned to Munich, Klee painted In the style of Kairouan, considered his first abstract, composed of colored rectangles and circles. In 1916, he joined the German army, painting camouflage on airplanes and working as a clerk, but his work continued to evolve during World War I.Klee taught art in Germany from 1921 until 1933, when the Nazis declared his work indecent and fired him. Later that year, Klee fled with his family to Switzerland, where he died in 1940 after suffering for years from a wasting disease.Klee was considered to be at his peak during this tumultuous time, continuing his torrid pace of output. In 1939, he produced more than 1,200 works, a career high for a single year.CNET’s Holiday Gift Guide: The place to find the best tech gifts for 2018.

Roku goes mobile to take on Amazon Prime Videos paid channels

first_imgPremium channel subscriptions are Roku’s latest way to broaden itself. Roku Roku, the set-top streaming box maker, is breaking out of the living room for the first time with a service that offers paid premium channels like Showtime and Starz that you can also watch on your phone.  On Wednesday, Roku unveiled Premium Subscriptions, which will launch late this month in a phased rollout. The idea is similar to Amazon Prime Video Channels — a place where you can buy add-on video subscriptions that let you cobble together a sort of personal bundle of internet-delivered TV with one-click purchases. Downsides to Roku’s version? It has fewer channels to choose from at a launch. (HBO is notably absent.) And subscribing via Roku won’t unlock your channels’ dedicated apps. So don’t expect to watch shows and movies in the Starz app via Roku even if you pay for Starz through Roku. The Roku Channel is the only place you can watch them.  Mentioned Above Roku SD Player $239 3:20 Now playing: Watch this: Preview • Roku Player – First Take Share your voice Which Roku player should you buy? See it Commentcenter_img Mobile Digital Media TV and Movies CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Tags Still, this marks Roku’s addition of mobile viewing for the first time, after its lifetime locked in the living room. Roku’s iOS and Android apps will be able to stream shows and movies for the first time. Until now, the Roku app served mostly as a second remote when paired to a powered-on Roku streaming device. But soon the Roku Channel, including any of your subscriptions, will be available on its mobile app in the US. Users will also be able to start a video on a Roku player or Roku TV and pick up from where they left off while on the go. 04-roku-premiere-plusRoku’s Premiere Plus is one of seven streaming devices in the company’s lineup.  Sarah Tew/CNET It’s Roku’s latest expansion beyond set-top boxes. Though the company’s bread-and-butter business is its popular streaming devices, Roku has been reaching into other businesses. It’s booking more advertising revenue through services like the Roku Channel with its ad-supported movies, news and sports, for example. The Amazon video channels model is a ripe target. Amazon is quiet about how the program is faring because Amazon is quiet about everything, but one analyst estimates Amazon is one of the main ways that cordcutters are signing up for paid video subscriptions. Nearly half of Starz’s direct-to-consumer subscribers may be coming from Amazon, according to BMO analyst Daniel Salmon, and HBO and Showtime may be sourcing about a third of their digital subscribers there. (Editors’ note: Showtime is owned by CBS, the parent company of CNET.)Roku versus AmazonThere are significant differences between Roku’s new offering and Amazon’s video channels. For one, you won’t be able to unlock the dedicated apps of services that you subscribe to via Roku, a function known as authentication. Amazon added the ability to authenticate into some of those dedicated apps last year. roku-express-plus-06.jpgUntil this year, Roku’s mobile app mostly functioned as a second remote for its streaming devices.  Sarah Tew/CNET The selection of channels is also slimmer. At launch, Roku is offering more than 25 subscriptions, while Amazon has accumulated more than 100. And Roku didn’t list some high-profile options, like HBO or PBS Kids, among the options it will have at launch. (Neither Amazon nor Roku offer Netflix, the most popular streaming network in the world.)It’s also unclear just how “one click” Roku signups will be. Amazon Prime Video Channels is based on the premise that you’re already a paying Amazon Prime member, so the company has your credit card details all set up. Roku has credit cards details for the majority of its accounts but not all, Rob Holmes, Roku’s vice president of programming and engagement, said in an interview last month. (Roku declined to further clarify the proportion of its monthly active accounts that have credit cards on file.) That leaves a portion of Roku users facing the hassle of tapping in new payment information in order to sign up for subscriptions they can get elsewhere. But like Amazon Prime Video Channels, Roku’s new Premium Subscriptions give you a one-stop hub for your subscriptions paid for with a single monthly bill. People can sign up for seven-day free trials (or longer) using their existing Roku account information. With Premium subscriptions, Roku users will be able to browse their channel’s entire catalogs. Search within the Roku Channel will be expanded, allowing people to search for keywords within the channel. Culture: Your hub for everything from film and television to music, comics, toys and sports.Netflix’s 137M subscribers evaporate fears: Blowout quarter? It’s the kind of formulaic plot Netflix loves. 1 Review • Roku Player Roku Player Amazon Prime Showtime Amazon Rokulast_img read more

Way before Avengers Endgame the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a huge risk

first_imgFrom Infinity War to Black Panther to Captain Marvel, Marvel movies keep smashing box office records. As Avengers: Endgame opens to widespread critical acclaim and monster ticket sales, it could become the biggest movie event of all time. Yup, we seriously can’t get enough of Marvel movies.But although superhero adventures now seem like the surest of sure things, it seems strange to remember the very different origins of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The MCU has expanded to 22 films, reinvented serialized movies, and made more than $18.6 billion at the global box office — but when it began a decade ago it was actually quite a gamble.Cast your mind back years before Endgame, before Thanos and the Infinity War snap, before the Avengers assembled…  Now playing: Watch this: The best moment from every Marvel Cinematic Universe… 18 Photos 4:23 Now playing: Watch this: Sphero Spider-Man 3 3:13 Inspired by the Marvel model, other studios have tried to create money-spinning cinematic universes of their own. Universal brought their classic monsters back from the grave with dubious success in The Mummy, while Marvel’s comic industry rival, DC, attempted to fast-track its own crossover with Justice League. But none has managed to capture the magic of the MCU.Marvel foreverAfter the success of the better-known names in the Avengers lineup, Marvel could have stuck to churning out Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Hulk sequels. “A lot of studios would love to have four franchises they can keep doing sequels to,” as Feige puts it. “We specifically didn’t want to do that, because we wanted to keep bringing new characters to the forefront.” marvel-newsletter-signup-articlesClick here to sign-up for our new guide to all things Marvel.And so the Avengers paved the way for even riskier titles. Even among comic fans, who could name a single Guardian of the Galaxy before that movie came out? But by then, the Marvel brand was known as a mark of quality, even if you hadn’t heard of the heroes in question. As each new film dropped, left-field directing choices such as James Gunn, the Russo brothers and Taika Waititi turned out to be pretty smart gambles. When Black Panther exploded into theaters in 2018, it quickly rocketed past a billion dollars and become a genuine cultural phenomenon. Not the most obscure comic hero but not the best-known either, Black Panther was just the latest example of Marvel banking on a character that might have been considered a gamble 10 years ago.In March, Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel became Marvel’s first female lead, and there are plenty more popular comic characters where she came from. Namor, Ms. Marvel, Nova, Moon Knight and many others have yet to appear on the big screen. And after Spider-Man’s entry to the MCU, other well-known characters like the X-Men and Fantastic Four could be brought back into the fold following Disney’s deal with Fox.For now, Endgame brings the curtain down on the first decade of the MCU, causing us to bid fond farewell to some of the franchise’s founder members. Whatever happens next, let’s hope Marvel isn’t done taking risks.This article was first published in May 2018. 10 years ago today, the Marvel Cinematic Universe began. #IronMan pic.twitter.com/yKgEnCiyST— Marvel Entertainment (@Marvel) May 2, 2018 Preview • Sphero’s new voice-activated Spider-Man toy sure is chatty TV and Movies Watching the MCU movies in the perfect order I am Iron Man2008’s Iron Man, the first MCU film, was far from a guaranteed hit. For starters, the Iron Man character had never appeared in a movie or live-action TV show, putting him behind the likes of Spider-Man and the Hulk in terms of general public awareness. And the big thing at the box office back then was the gritty and grounded Dark Knight series, which self-consciously played down Batman’s more comic book-y elements. Colorful and fantastic movies like Green Lantern and Ang Lee’s Hulk were just as likely to flop as they were to hit big.As if that wasn’t enough, Marvel brought in two guys to head up Iron Man who were definitely unknown quantities. “In the late 1990s Robert Downey Jr. was uninsurable,” says box office analyst Stephen Follows, “making him unemployable to any production which wanted to get a completion bond.” Despite being an Oscar-nominated actor, Downey had never fronted a blockbuster like this — and neither had director Jon Favreau, the guy from Swingers, whose main directing experience was Christmas comedy Elf and a largely overlooked Jumanji semi-sequel.Multiple writers worked on drafts of the screenplay, only for Favreau to encourage Downey and the cast to improvise. The lack of a definite script didn’t initially impress co-star Jeff Bridges, who only relaxed when he decided to view the chaotic production as a “$200 million student film.”Troubled star Robert Downey Jr. and director Jon Favreau teamed up for the first MCU movie, released in 2008. Elisabetta Villa / Getty Images Ah yes, the money. Marvel had spent decades farming its comic characters out to other companies for TV and film adaptations, with mixed results. Even when a character hit big at the movies, Marvel didn’t necessarily see big returns. Spider-Man was off making money for Sony hand-over-webshooter, while the X-Men were raking it in for Fox. So in the 2000s, the folks at Marvel’s movie arm clawed back the film rights to their characters and borrowed a chunk of money from Merrill Lynch to make their own movies.Iron Man was the first of this new series of Marvel-made movies. “I really don’t know how people are gonna react to this thing,” Favreau admitted shortly before the film’s release. “This could be anything from a flop to … something beyond people’s expectations. You never know.” Share your voice Stan Lee dies at 95: A look back at his most iconic characters on screen As it turned out, Downey’s insouciant charm carried the movie. Premiering on April 18, 2008 in Australia and May 2 in the US, Iron Man delivered a combination of humor, spectacular visual effects and unapologetic comic book action that made it a sensation with fans and critics.More MarvelStill, Marvel movie boss Kevin Feige had an even bigger gamble in mind. In Iron Man’s final scene, Samuel L Jackson turned up as comic book superspy Nick Fury. Not only did this begin the trend for postcredits scenes, but it also set the stage for Marvel’s other superheroes to follow Iron Man onto the big screen.The Marvel Cinematic Universe was born.But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Just weeks later, in June 2008, the second MCU movie The Incredible Hulk, opened to a lukewarm reception. According to Box Office Mojo, it remains the MCU’s weakest performer — and this was a character that mainstream moviegoers might actually have heard of. avengers253d1a1bcebbe6.jpgSolo outings for Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) paved the way for the Avengers to team up. Jay Maidment As Marvel’s disastrous 1986 Howard the Duck movie proved, Marvel’s comics are full of characters who could be just a little too out there for mainstream audiences. Even the most devoted superhero movie fan might have been puzzled to see familiar caped crusaders fighting alongside viking god Thor or mustachioed magician Dr Strange —  and that’s before you get to the real weirdos like Ant-Man, Groot and Rocket Raccoon.Hollywood often appears a bit embarrassed about the characters it brings from page to screen — look at all the black body armor replacing capes and tights in the X-Men and Dark Knight films, for example. But Marvel went all in on the colorful capers of its superheroes, from Captain America’s World War II origins to, well, just about everything in Guardians of the Galaxy.Marvel continued to perfect the MCU’s colorful, boisterous tone in 2011’s Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. “God forbid those films had [flopped],” Feige told Entertainment Weekly, because each solo outing primed audiences for the next big gamble: bringing the heroes together.Avengers assembleIn 2012, the various heroes of the MCU met in The Avengers, shepherded by writer and director Joss Whedon. Crossover stories uniting multiple characters are common in comics, but rare in the movies — at least in recent years. “In the last couple of decades, traditional Hollywood studios have increasingly relied on sequels, reboots and remakes in order to provide what they hope will be sure-fire hits,” explains Stephen Follows. “What we’re seeing with Marvel is something else. They’re similar to a model Hollywood loved 80 years ago: the film series’ of the 1930s and 1940s.”nullThe Avengers line-up expanded until Infinity War starred more than 30 major characters. Marvel Of course, the bubble could burst at any moment. Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp all hit screens in 2018, followed by Captain Marvel, Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home in 2019. Plus, theatres are crowded by superhero shenanigans like DC’s Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam!No wonder critics like James Cameron warn of superhero fatigue. Marvel has a way to go to beat the most prolific film series of the past, however: There were 64 films featuring the Durango Kid between 1945 and 1952, an average of more than 9 a year.Even if superheroes do start to lose their luster, the general industry trend of growing global box office spreads the risk of each new super-outing. “The first crop of MCU movies relied heavily on the domestic market,” Follows says. “But as time has progressed, the international market has increased in importance.” While Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2 made half their money in the US and Canada, by the time Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok hit screens two-thirds of their money came from overseas.

You will not get Budweiser in Delhi anymore heres why

first_img Liquor ban imposed in Mathura Budweiser’s parent company has a $7 billion beer market, making it the second-largest brewery seller contributing about 17.5 percent in the market share. Facebook/ BudweiserBudweiser has been banned in Delhi for three years over allegations of tax evasion. The decision was taken after the state government completed a thorough investigation of beer maker SABMiller.The investigation put forward observations where the company was found guilty of using duplicate barcodes on the bottles allowing the company to pay lower levies. AB InBev has denied all the allegations and claimed that it would appeal against the ban, Reuters reported.The order also called for the sealing of two Ab InBev warehouses in Delhi which was completed on Tuesday. The company has been barred from selling fresh stock in the market. [Representational image]Creative Commons.AB InBev countered the government’s decision by stating that the allegations were related to SABMiller prior to its takeover and claimed for a fair hearing after allowing the company to present its views in full cooperation with the excise appellate process.An investigation brought out observations that there were bottles with the same barcode at a bar. However, the brewer argued the allegations quoting technical and clerical error in the barcode system. The government stated that it was reasonable to believe that the barcode tampering was a way of selling non-duty paid liquor.

first_imgGreater Houston’s job market grew by 73,300 jobs in 2018, not by 108,300 as previously estimated, according to benchmark revisions by the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).The Greater Houston Partnership lists several reasons for the difference:The TWC likely overestimated the impact on construction jobs from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.Growth in the oil and gas sector didn’t turn out to be as robust as previously thought, creating 1,400 fewer jobs than estimated.The retail sector actually lost 5,800 jobs instead of adding 800, indicating that Houston’s population and income growth wasn’t enough to offset the effects from e-commerce and store closings.Professional and business services only added half as many jobs (14,300) as thought.On the positive side, bars and restaurants added positions after the previous estimate had them lose jobs.The revised numbers are based on data from unemployment insurance accounts, whereas the previous estimates rely on employer surveys.View Fullscreen Sharelast_img read more
