Wilson and Anderson have worked together for more than a decade, in pictures including “The Royal Tenenbaums.” The 38-year-old Wilson was taken by ambulance to a hospital last week after police responded to a call at his Santa Monica home. The day after he was hospitalized, he issued a statement asking for privacy so he could “receive care and heal.” In “Darjeeling,” Wilson plays a distraught man – bandaged throughout the film – who other characters imply has attempted suicide. Wilson plays one of three brothers who haven’t said a word to each other in a year and who take a train journey across India in an attempt to find themselves and their relationship again. Owen Wilson is doing well as he recovers from an apparent suicide attempt, and is even making colleagues laugh, the director of his latest film said Monday. “Obviously he has been through a lot this week,” said Wes Anderson, who directed Wilson in “The Darjeeling Limited,” one of the films in competition for the Venice Film Festival’s top award. “I can tell you he has been doing very well, he has been making us laugh,” Anderson told a news conference to promote the film. “When he is ready, he’s going to speak for himself much better than any of us could,” the director said. last_img read more

Black business gives backing to NDP

first_img31 July 2013South Africa’s Black Business Council has thrown its weight behind the country’s long-term socio-economic development roadmap, the National Development Plan (NDP).A policy blueprint for eliminating poverty and reducing inequality in South Africa by 2030, the NDP identifies the key constraints to faster growth and presents a roadmap to a more inclusive economy that will address the country’s socio-economic imbalances.In a televised interview with the SABC on Tuesday, Black Business Council general secretary Sandile Zungu said the NDP gave South Africa, for the first time since the Freedom Charter, a guiding vision that could unite the country.Zungu told the SABC that the document was still “picture imperfect”, with various sectors have expressed “this or that concern” with it.However, the council, “as a collective of black business, is saying, ‘Let’s support this, let us make sure this economy grows at a sustainable level of six percent and more to create jobs and to enhance the competitiveness of our country for the prosperity of all.’”Zungu was speaking ahead of a conference, hosted by the Black Business Council in Johannesburg on Tuesday, on the role of black business in implementing the NDP.He said the organisation had identified a number of barriers to the entry of black businesses into the mainstream of the economy, including difficulties with access to capital, mentoring and training, and supply chains.These could be addressed, Zungu said, by the government acting as a partner to business through its development finance institutions.At the same time, the council urged big business to make small businesses part of their supply chains.It was also crucial that black businesses play a sizeable role in implementing the government’s infrastructure drive, Zungu said, noting that the Department of Public Enterprises was involved in Tuesday’s conference, where a number of ministers would be in attendance and Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel would be speaking.The NDP was approved by Cabinet late last year and adopted by the ruling African National Congress (ANC) at its elective conference in Mangaung in December.President Jacob Zuma, in his reply to the debate on the Presidency’s budget vote in Parliament in June, reiterated the government’s support for the NDP as South Africa’s “long-term socio-economic development roadmap”, saying the plan “ensures certainty with regards to the direction of the country in the next 20 years”.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Local Continuing Education Classes Now Included in Everyblock

first_imgmarshall kirkpatrick Tags:#Location#news#web Related Posts Everyblock, the data-driven hyper-local news website covering 16 US cities, announced today that it has added continuing education listings from the website TeachStreet to its newsfeed. Now you can learn when there are new cooking or violin classes in your neighborhood, side-by-side with news of police activity, restaurant reviews and news stories about your area. I love Everyblock and haven’t paid enough attention to TeachStreet before, it looks good too. MSNBC owns Everyblock and it’s an invaluable service, but each time a new data source gets added, a fundamental flaw in the user interface rears its head again. None the less, this is an exciting dataset to see added to the hyper-local news.It’s too hard to exclude particular types of updates from your newsfeed. There ought to be a way to say “show me restaurant reviews, media reports, TeachStreet listings and police activities, but not fire alarms or traffic stops.” I really believe that increased granularity would greatly increase the frequency with which I and many other people visited Everyblock. The prospect of surfacing continuing education courses in my neighborhood is quite exciting.

Fuel Cell to Power Connecticut Sub Base

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Officials last week held a groundbreaking at Naval Submarine Base New London, Conn., for a 7.4-megawatt fuel cell park adjacent to the base’s power substation, part of an effort to improve the installation’s energy resiliency and cut its energy costs. Connecticut-based FuelCell Energy will sell the power generated by the fuel cells to the Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Cooperative, which oversees the local grid and has entered into a 20-year purchase power agreement with the Navy, reports the Day. The fuel cell park will meet a majority of the daily needs of the base, with any excess power being exported to the Groton Utilities distribution system, according to a press release.“It is designed to compete with the grid, and be better than grid power, but it’s also about resiliency and the reliability of having power locally on base,” said Tony Rauseo, senior vice president and COO of FuelCell Energy, which is designing, manufacturing and overseeing the installation of the fuel cell park.Day photo by Tim Martinlast_img read more
