Bellatrix plunges on proposal to trade debt for 835 of its equity

CALGARY — Shares in Bellatrix Exploration Ltd. fell by as much as 35 per cent Friday after it proposed a deal that would leave its existing shareholders with just 16.5 per cent of the company.The Calgary-based oil and gas producer says it intends to exchange US$146 million in senior unsecured notes due in 2020 for US$100 million in new debt maturing in 2023, plus common shares totalling 51 per cent of the company’s float.It is also offering to trade $50 million in convertible debentures for another 32.5 per cent of its common shares following the recapitalization.Bellatrix says the transactions — which are subject to approval by debtholders and court and regulatory authorities — would reduce its total outstanding debt by about $110 million to about $328 million and reduce annual interest payments by over $12 million.Two weeks ago, the company warned investors that its ability to continue as a going concern was in doubt given a pending credit review and uncertainty about refinancing its senior notes.It said its net loss in 2018 was $146 million, compared with a net loss of $91 million in 2017.Fourth-quarter 2018 production was about 35,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, 71 per cent natural gas, down six per cent from the same period of 2017.Bellatrix shares, which traded as low as 40 cents on Friday morning, were down 9.5 cents at 44.5 cents in late-afternoon trading.

Brock Student Ambassadors – Students Today Alumni Forever

Student Ambassadors share fond memoriesIt all began in the fall of 1985.That was when 27 students met for the first general meeting of the newly established Brock Student Ambassadors (BSA). Supported by the then-Office of External Relations, the BSA began by providing services such as exam survival kits, assisting with school visits, and organizing a Kids Day for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Association.Over their nearly 30-year tenure, hundreds of exceptional Brock students were proud Brock Student Ambassadors. Their handbook described them as “enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers who devote time and energy into providing services and promoting interaction between students, alumni, the University, and the community.”As the Brock Student Ambassadors prepare to host a huge reunion during Homecoming Weekend, we reached out to a few BSA alumni to get their input on what it meant to be an ambassador.Lynne Irion (former adviser to the BSA 1999-2012): I officially became adviser to the Brock Student Ambassadors in September 1999. However, I had been involved with the group since September 1989 when I joined what was then known as Alumni Affairs. My favourite part of being adviser to the group was seeing newcomers come in as shy first-year students and then grow and become confident third- and fourth-year adults, and later become supporting alumni.Ruth Ellen Wilson (BSc ’95): Being a Brock Student Ambassador was definitely a highlight of my time at Brock. The things that I remember most about being an ambassador were stuffing Exam Kits, the Rotary TV auction, and being told to be quiet in the office (we had our own couch in there)! I also got a nickname that stuck for my four BSA years and beyond… Fish!Jason Sykes (BA ’06; MA ’08): I have so many fond memories with the BSA, most of all I remember the people, the smiles and the laughs. I remember nights out, nights in, chilling in the office, visiting Lynne, retreat, conferences. Such good people! Sarah Brown (BPhEd ’13): The Brock Student Ambassadors meant so much more to me than the volunteering or co-ordinating of events. My involvement in the BSA allowed me a sense of family. Advocating for Brock and networking with alumni never felt like a chore, it was a sheer joy, as it was being done in the spirit of family.Alex Yarascavitch (BSc ’07): My sister, brother and I were heavily involved in the Out of the Cold program at St. Paul United Church on Monday nights. I always felt that this was a really worthwhile project to help our community.Brock Student Ambassadors Reunion: As the Brock Student Ambassadors gear up for a reunion during Homecoming Weekend, they invite all former ambassadors back to reconnect. Sarah Brown said it well; “a reunion of ambassadors constitutes a reunion of family; of individuals who were shaped in the spirit of Brock, and I can only imagine the smiles, laughs and fond memories to be shared with everyone back together.”Date: Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014Time: 2-4 p.m. Reunion (then reconnect with hundreds of Brock grads at the Red Dinner 5-10 p.m.)Location: Sodexo Mezzanine (above Walker Complex cafeteria)For more information about the 17+ reunions during Homecoming, and other Homecoming events, visit brocku.ca/homecoming read more

Energy East pipeline would stress whales Conservation Council of New Brunswick

by Kevin Bissett, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 19, 2015 6:27 am MDT Last Updated Aug 19, 2015 at 4:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email In a report released Wednesday on the risks the proposed bitumen pipeline poses to ocean environments, the Conservation Council of New Brunswick says noise from tanker traffic causes heightened levels of stress for the North Atlantic right whale, the most endangered large whale in the world. A rare North Atlantic right whale is shown diving in Cape Cod Bay near Provincetown, Mass., Thursday afternoon, April 10, 2008. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP-Stephan Savoia Energy East pipeline would stress whales: Conservation Council of New Brunswick FREDERICTON – The company planning to build the Energy East pipeline says concerns raised in a new report about the potential impact of the project on whales and some fisheries in the Bay of Fundy are unfounded.A report released Wednesday by the Conservation Council of New Brunswick said noise from tanker traffic causes heightened levels of stress for the North Atlantic right whale, the most endangered large whale in the world.It said studies show that tanker traffic impedes on the whales’ ability to communicate, forcing them to “shout” over tanker engines and when the noise reaches a certain level, they are not able to communicate at all.“Right whales form social groups while in the Bay of Fundy, an important part of their life cycle, relying on their ability to communicate to form these groups,” the report by the council’s Matthew Abbott said.But Tim Duboyce, Energy East spokesman for TransCanada Corp., (TSX:TRP) said the council is just trying to replicate the issue that caused TransCanada to cancel plans for an export terminal in Cacouna, Que.The company said there were concerns for Beluga whales near the site, but Duboyce said the plan for a proposed export terminal in Saint John, N.B., is different.“First of all, the proposed Canaport – Energy East terminal and tank farm are not located near the critical habitat of the right whale in the Bay of Fundy at all,” he said.Duboyce said while the proposed terminal would see an extra 115 ship visits for the port each year, the traffic should not be an issue for the whales.“Those shipping lanes were shifted out of the habitat of the whales more than 10 years ago and there hasn’t been a single reported strike with a ship since then. The population of whales has shown signs of significant growth since then.”The council’s 22-page report said the Bay of Fundy’s world-famous tides and thick fog would make it difficult to clean up oil spills quickly.It provides examples of past spills in the Bay of Fundy, including an incident in February 2007 that was not assessed or tracked due to adverse weather and fog.It also said bitumen is likely to form into tarballs when mixed with salt water and sink, which could harm the region’s fisheries, such as bottom-feeding lobster and scallop.But Duboyce said the company will have emergency plans in place.“The fact of the matter is, what we’re doing is putting in place measures to try to ensure that a situation like that never happens in the first place. Zero incidents is our aim,” he said.New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant was again promoting the Energy East project Wednesday during a breakfast speech to the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce.Gallant said every natural resource and energy project comes with some risk, and that’s why it will get a thorough review by the National Energy Board.“I think it’s important to respect the process that’s happening now with the National Energy Board. I think it’s important for the many organizations and individuals that raise their hand to be an intervenor, be heard,” Gallant said.“It has been well documented that pipelines are safer than what we’re doing at the moment, which is rail.”The council’s report makes a number of recommendations, including that the federal Fisheries Department conduct an assessment of marine traffic noise in the Bay of Fundy to determine its impact and the potential impact of increased traffic noise on whales and other marine life.It said Ottawa should also assess its oil spill response capabilities in the Bay of Fundy with respect to the bay’s unique characteristics, such as extreme tides and fog. read more

Terrell Suggs Surrendered Firearms after Domestic Case

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was mandated to turn in several firearms last month in compliance to a domestic case involving his longtime girlfriend, Candace Williams, according to Justin Fenton and Jeff Zriebiec of the Baltimore Sun.“The guns were surrendered over to police pursuant to the court order, and they [Suggs and Williams] are resolving their issues,” Suggs’ attorney Warren Alperstein told the Sun Thursday. “All I can tell you is that he’s in rightful and lawful possession of the guns but turned them over pursuant to the requirements of the law.”Baltimore County Circuit Court records show that Suggs filed a custody complaint against Williams on Nov. 19. There was a report filed by Williams shortly afterwards, according to Alperstein. Baltimore County police were called to the home Suggs on Nov. 21, but no reports were taken.Alperstein expects for all domestic-related issues to be resolved in a court hearing to be held next week.The Ravens senior vice president of public and community relations, Kevin Byrne, said that the team is aware of Suggs’ off the field situation, but did not wish to release any comments on the matter. Suggs also chose not to comment.Charles E. Brooks, Williams’ attorney, also refused to comment when the Baltimore Sun reached him at his home Thursday night.Suggs and Williams have had a rocky relationship that dates back to 2009. Williams, who is the mother of Suggs two children and former fiancée, alleged in court documents in December 2009 that Suggs knocked her down and spilled bleach on her after an argument over game-day tickets.The detailed complaint alleged that Suggs threw a soap dispenser at her head, hit her in the chest with his hand, and held a bottle of bleach over her and their son.Williams filed a protective order against the Ravens veteran and was granted a temporary protective order, but she withdrew the order a month later in an attempt to reconcile. Suggs was not investigated or charged with a crime involving this incident.Suggs handing over the guns has come to light after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher murdered his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins last week after the two were going through domestic issues. He then proceeded to the Chiefs’ practice facility and committed suicide in front of head coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli.Belcher was the legal handgun owner of the weapon used in the killings.Suggs will attempt to play this week against the Washington Redskins after tearing his right biceps in Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He returned to the practice field Thursday and has vowed to continue to play through the injury in order to help the team clinch the AFC North title. read more

Rate drop

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram When the RBA dropped the cash rate to 3.25 per cent almost three weeks ago, mortgage holders were happy but retirees and savers missed out. While mortgage holders stood to save about $38 a month on a 300,000 variable rate loan, there are numerically more Australians saving their money and relying on the yield from those savings, than there are people borrowing for a home loan. The people who have their money in cash savings products are relying on interest rates to sustain them. But the Reserve Bank wants to stimulate the economy so it reduces the cost of money to get people to borrow and spend. The current situation is poised to create terrible pressure on retirees and those close to it because most economists expect inflation to rise again. Inflation is currently low (around 2 per cent) but its average since 1983 is really 3 per cent. Economists know that inflation always comes back to trend, and when it does it will be in this context: the online savings accounts, bonus savers and term deposits are yielding in the range of 3 to 4.5 per cent. So if inflation comes back to around 3 per cent – at time when the RBA is still holding the cash rate around 3 per cent – then the safest forms of saving are not going to produce the income that retirees need. The first thing to do is assess whether you are getting expert advice. If you have an adviser, call and tell them that you don’t want to be caught between rising inflation and a falling cash rate, and schedule an appointment. If you’re DIY, then you have to start searching for cash products that take you up the return curve while not taking you too far along the risk axis. If you want the high yields, you will be typically looking at bank term deposits and online savings accounts, which are safe and can earn up to 2.5 per cent over inflation. There are tricks to these. The online ‘bonus’ savers often pay their high rates for the first 4-6 months, or they punish you for taking money out in any month, or they punish you for not putting money in. Terms deposits are more straight forward in the rates they pay but they are inflexible. Into this environment are creeping high-yield ‘hybrid’ products, some of which are offering yields of 7 per cent. They seem to be products of the ‘cash’ variety, but many of them include equity features that expose you to loss. The problem with these investments that look like ‘cash’ – but are not really – is that the yields are variable and there is a risk of losing your capital. At which point, you are missing out on the main benefit of a ‘cash’ investment: the safety of it. There are good cash products with high yields in the current market – do you homework and make sure you know what you’re investing in. * Mark Bouris is the Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road, a financial services company offering home loans, financial planning, accounting & tax and insurance.

Vivek Shah Buys Ziff Davis Media

first_imgShah stepped down from his post at Time Inc. late last year.What will come of current Ziff Davis Media CEO Jason Young, as well as other executives like CFO Neil Glass, was not immediately clear. A company spokesperson did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.Like many media companies, Ziff Davis has undergone radical changes over the last several years. In June 2007, the company sold its Ziff Davis Enterprise division to Insight Venture Partners for $150 million in cash. One month later, former consumer/small business group president Jason Young took over as CEO, replacing Robert Callahan, who stayed on as chairman. The next month, in August, Ziff Davis Media said it was skipping a scheduled interest payment on its senior subordinated notes and was exploring options to restructure its debt. The company had been carrying long-term debt of about $390 million.Under that debt, the company became one of the first big media companies to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (in March of 2008). The company emerged in July 2008, having de-leveraged its balance sheet by converting more than $428 million in funded debt to a new common stock and a new loan note not to exceed $57.5 million.Before the end of the year, Ziff shuttered the print edition of PC Magazine, opting to maintain the brand online only. By early 2009, the company sold the 1UP Digital Network to Hearst’s Ugo Entertainment and shut down Electronic Gaming Monthly (which was relaunched by its co-founder earlier this year), effectively marking its exit from publishing printed magazines.Check back to FOLIOmag.com for updates to this story. Former Time Inc. digital group president Vivek Shah has partnered with Boston-based investment firm Great Hill Partners to acquire Ziff Davis Media. The assets associated with the deal include PCMag.com, ExtremeTech, GearLog, GoodCleanTech, DL.tv, AppScout, CrankyGeeks, Smart Device Central and TechSaver.com.Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Great Hill Partners says it targets equity investments of $50 million to $150 million. “This is an unusual opportunity to acquire a recognized category leader with a very deep team of talent that has already fully transitioned to digital,” Shah, who will lead Ziff Davis as CEO, said in a statement announcing the acquisition. “Ziff Davis is an incredible foundation off which to build an exciting new digital media company focused on delivering fantastic content to our audience and unprecedented opportunities to marketers.”last_img read more

That summer in July, the song “Light My Fire” made it to No. 1 on the Hot 100, and by September the album was No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The album that prevented The Doors from reaching No. 1? Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Both albums are now in the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame, records of an incredible era when some members of the flower generation escaped into dreams, stretching the boundaries of what rock music could be. For The Record: CeCe Winans, ‘Let Them Fall … ‘ In 2007 on the 40th anniversary of their epic debut, the Doors received the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The Doors “remained a band of intelligent, eclectic, adventurous musicians,” Ben Fong-Torres wrote in tribute to them that year. “They resisted rules, trends and, sometimes, even law and order. They were unpredictable, both in the studio and on stage. The result was the kind of rock that means the most, that has impact, that endures.”Like Mick Jagger and Elvis Presley, The Doors’ lead singer and lyricist Jim Morrison offered a visual icon and a musical attitude that stood, and moved, for rock and roll. Unfortunately, Morrison’s issues with substance abuse and excess seem to have contributed to his premature death of heart failure in 1971. Morrison was buried days later at Paris’ Père Lachaise Cemetery in the Poets’ Corner, and tourists continue to visit his grave to mourn Morrison’s loss.At the 22nd GRAMMY Awards the album An American Prayer was nominated for Best Spoken Word, Documentary Or Drama Recording. The band’s surviving members prepared the compilation including his final poetry session before he died, leading to Morrison’s sole GRAMMY nomination.Guitarist Robby Krieger’s 2010 Singularity was nominated at the 53rd GRAMMY Awards for Best Pop Instrumental Album. Although the surviving trio continued to release albums together for a few years after Morrison’s death, they soon disbanded. Drummer John Densmore supported Morrison’s estate and artistic wishes in fighting to prevent commercial licensing of the group’s music and logo. Ray Manzarek was the organist whose classic keyboard playing haunts the memories of most Americans; he passed away in 2013.Producer Paul Rothchild and GRAMMY winning engineer Bruce Botnick recorded the album in just six days. Its hit “Break On Through (To The Other Side)” became a rock classic and the extravagant, 11-minute “The End” was a self-indulgent but rich demonstration of how rock could be used to act out drama. Rolling Stone ranked The Doors No. 42 of their 500 greatest albums of all time.The track “Light My Fire” was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 1998, followed by the entire album The Doors in 2002.

Oxfam releases dismal report on gender parity caste discrimination in employment sector

COPY LINKAD Loading … Closecenter_img With jobs as one of the main focal points in the upcoming Lok Sabha 2019 elections, many have asked the question – “Where are the jobs?”In early 2019, it was reported that the unemployment rate has gone up to 7.2 per cent, which according to Business Insider, is the highest since September 2016. Oxfam India released a sobering report – ‘Mind the Gap – State of Employment in India’ which showed that India has a wide gender gap in the employment patterns in the country. “Despite the rhetoric of job creation and ensuring gender justice, the ground reality is sobering. The report draws particular attention to women being left out of the economic growth narrative, a consequence of poor policy choices and lack of investment in social security and infrastructure,” Oxfam India CEO Amitabh Behar was quoted as saying by Times of India.The report said one of the reasons for this trend in employment is because of demonetisation. The TOI report says that after demonetisation in2016, the number of households with two or more working person dropped by a considerable margin. According to reports, January to October 2016 had 34.8 per cent households with two or more people working. However, after the announcement, the numbers dropped to 31.8 per cent. It was reported that more women saw a majority of job losses compared to men.Caste factor in employment A labourer cleans an underground sewer.REUTERS/Parivartan SharmaThe Oxfam report presents a gloomy picture of Indian social realities where caste continues to be one of the biggest factors that determine a job he or she has to do. The report added that more jobs were generated in the unorganised sector than the organised sector. For example, women from the Mahadalit community predominantly act as midwives and help with childbirth. The report continues to portray how discrimination exists within these communities. The rich Baniyas have their own shops while those belonging to the lower strata work in taboo jobs such as rag-picking, in the leather industry and sanitation. Sanitation includes cleaning of sewers, a dangerous job which has killed many in the recent past.Economic disparities when it comes to jobsThe report also reveals that students part of the state board education system do not perform as well as those studying in the nationalized board which help the richer school which many can’t afford.”National Achievement Survey found students from state education boards do considerably worse than those of independent national boards that cater to the richer, better schools. Even within the public education system, there are glaring inequalities in educational investment. Government sponsored Kendriya Vidyalayas (KV) spend Rs 27,000 per student whereas non KV government schools spend a mere Rs 3000 per student,” the report says.last_img read more

Americans Say To Pass The Turkey Not The Politics At Thanksgiving This

first_img Share John Moore | Getty Images via NPR Most Americans don’t want their family members to pass along their political opinions while passing the turkey and dressing this Thanksgiving.According to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, 58 percent of people celebrating the holiday are dreading having to talk politics around the dinner table. Just 31 percent said they were eager to discuss the latest news with their family and friends, while 11 percent are unsure. Americans across the board said they think both parties have crossed a line in attacking the other side — two-thirds thought Democrats had done so. Just 29 percent thought the party had stayed within acceptable bounds.The numbers are almost identical for the GOP — with 67 percent saying Republicans crossed a line in attacking Democrats, and just 27 percent said it has been within acceptable boundaries.Trump underwater as public disapproves of how Republicans handle health care, tax overhaulTrump’s approval rating remains stagnant and steady at 39 percent. A majority (55 percent) continue to disapprove of the job the president is doing.In Marist’s past 11 surveys testing the president’s approval, he hasn’t risen above 39 percent, where it has been five times, and hasn’t dipped below 35 percent.“There’s not the typical pattern of a honeymoon,” Miringoff said. “This is just steady. It’s his base that approves, and that’s it.”Those numbers could bode well for Democratic hopes in the 2018 midterms, but this poll also shows their advantage on who Americans would rather control Congress narrowing to just 3 points, 43 percent to 40 percent.That’s a 12-point shift from just a week earlier, when Marist showed Democrats with a 15-point advantage. It is also a deviation from other recent polls that have given Democrats the wider gap they have needed historically to take back control of the House of Representatives.Miringoff explained that the shift isn’t due to Republicans picking up voters, but to independents going from Democrats to undecided — for now.That 15-point edge also came following the big Democratic gains in Virginia, New Jersey and elsewhere, which might have colored respondents’ preferences. (It also, however, coincided with the president’s trip to Asia, where he was uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter.)On the issues, though, almost three-quarters of Americans said they disapprove of how Republicans have handled health care legislation. Some 60 percent want the Affordable Care Act changed to do more (41 percent) or want to let it stand (19 percent), while just 35 percent want it repealed completely (28 percent) or to do less (7 percent).How Republicans are performing on the tax overhaul isn’t much better in the public’s eyes, either. Fifty-seven percent said they don’t like how the GOP has handled the possible overhaul, with only 31 percent approving. Additionally, one of Republicans’ most-used arguments isn’t resonating widely either — when asked if they’d be in favor of receiving a tax cut if it meant increasing the national deficit, two-thirds of Americans said no.About 1 in 3 women says she has been subject to office sexual harassment The poll also found that just over one-third of women said they have been sexually harassed in their workplace. Overall, 1 in 5 Americans, including men, says he or she has experienced sexual harassment.Older women are more likely to say they have experienced sexual harassment — 32 percent above the age of 45 said they have been victimized during their careers, compared with 18 percent under 45.The numbers come as many high-profile men, from Hollywood moguls like Harvey Weinstein to politicians like Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, have been accused of sexual misconduct or worse.NPR’s former top news executive Michael Oreskes was forced to resign after multiple sexual harassment allegations were leveled against him. NPR CEO Jarl Mohn has taken a medical leave amid the fallout from Oreskes’ departure. NPR has also placed David Sweeney, who was recently promoted to the position of chief news editor, on paid administrative leave while reviewing allegations about his conduct as well.More allegations surfaced on Monday, against New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush and Charlie Rose, who appears on CBS, PBS and Bloomberg.Even as the list of the accused grows almost daily, a strong majority of Americans (88 percent) said they do believe their workplace takes reports of sexual harassment and abuse seriously, including 69 percent who said they are taken “very seriously.” Only 9 percent said they believe such allegations aren’t taken very seriously, and 4 percent said they aren’t taken seriously at all.Almost two-thirds (64 percent) of employees also said they think the accuser is more likely to be believed by their place of business than the accused in such situations. Just 18 percent said the accused is more likely to be believed.Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. That’s a slight uptick from a year ago, when a CNN poll found that 53 percent said they were dreading having to carry on such a conversation, with 43 percent saying they looked forward to such a dialogue.“There’s a sense of dread. It suggests some indigestion may be part of Thanksgiving dinner if politics come up,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion. “People you work with and go out with socially tend to share political views, but when you get to family, if politics is in the recipe, it may not taste very well.”That trepidation about broaching politics isn’t coming from just one political party, but almost two-thirds of Democrats said they are, while only about half of Republicans were. (Fifty-six percent of independents also said so.)President Trump is, unsurprisingly, a polarizing topic of potential dinner conversation. Forty-seven percent of people in the poll said they find it “stressful and frustrating” when talking with people who have a different opinion about the president than they do. (A Pew Research Center poll from June found 59 percent saying the same thing.)In the Marist survey this month, 43 percent of people said they find it “interesting and informative” to engage with people who have different views of Trump. Not surprisingly, it’s Democrats who are less likely to want to engage with people who have different views of the president.About two-thirds of Democrats said it’s stressful and frustrating to do so, while a majority of Republicans said it was “interesting and informative.”A slight plurality — 47 percent — of independents also thought engaging with differing viewpoints was positive, while 44 percent found it to be a negative thing.Political civility drops nationally, but not as much locally The lack of civility that many anticipate will put a damper on their holiday season is emblematic of the broader political discourse across the country. Sixty-seven percent of adults said the tone and level of civility in Washington have gotten worse since Trump was elected a year ago. (Just 23 percent said it has stayed the same, with only 6 percent saying it has improved.)Democrats, again, think the tone in D.C. has gotten worse by a higher margin — 79 percent think so with just 13 percent saying it has stayed the same and 5 percent saying it has improved.Sixty percent of Republicans agree the level of civility has dropped, while 31 percent said it has stayed the same, and 7 percent say it has gotten better. Just over two-thirds of independents said it has gotten worse, about a quarter said it has stayed the same and 7 percent said it has gotten worse.Americans are more optimistic about the level of discourse in their communities, however. Just over half of those surveyed said the tone and civility had stayed the same locally since Trump was elected, while 32 percent said it had gotten worse. Only 12 percent said it had gotten better.And once again, it is Democrats taking the most dour view — 47 percent said things have stayed the same; 46 percent said they think it has gotten worse; and only 4 percent said the tone of discourse in their own communities has gotten better.Compare that with 58 percent of Republicans and 47 percent of independents, who thought things locally have gotten better. Twenty-seven percent of GOP voters said the discourse in their community has improved, while just 9 percent of independents thought so.Meanwhile, 30 percent of independents said things have gotten worse locally, and only 12 percent of Republicans thought so.Overall, half of Americans still said they think the political discourse in the country is negative, while 36 percent classified it as angry. Only 11 percent said they think the current national conversation is positive.Republicans are the most upbeat — 21 percent said they think the discourse is positive, but just over half still think it is negative, and about a quarter say it is angry.Democrats were almost evenly split between thinking it is negative (45 percent) and angry (44 percent) with only 9 percent saying it is positive.last_img read more

Supermans Red Trunks Return in Action Comics 1000

first_imgStay on target Superman’s iconic red trunks disappeared during DC Comics’ New 52 initiative and remained missing when the company launched Rebirth. Now, for Action Comics‘ landmark 1000th issue, DC is redesigning the Kryptonian’s costume to incorporate new and classic elements. One of these additions are the character’s red trunks.First revealed by Entertainment Weekly, the cover to Action Comics #1000 shows Superman in all of his red trunk-y glory. The image was illustrated by Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair. Artist Jim Lee was actually the man who removed Big Blue’s trunks for New 52, so it is somewhat fitting that he’s the one to bring them back. The new costume also resurrects the yellow belt, which went missing along with the red trunks. The blue metallic cuff from DC Rebirth and the DCEU films have been incorporated as well.“Action Comics #1000 represents a watershed moment in the history of not just comic books, but entertainment, literature, and pop culture,” said Jim Lee in a statement. “There’s no better way to celebrate Superman’s enduring popularity than to give him a look that combines some new accents with the most iconic feature of his classic design.”Given its importance, Action Comics #1000 will be unlike any other anniversary comic out there. Expect a variety of stories from some of the industry’s biggest names. The most notable one is long-time Marvel Comics writer, Brian Michael Bendis, who will pen his first Superman story. Marv Wolfman, who wrote the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths, is doing a brand-new tale based on unpublished art from legendary Superman artist Curt Swan. Superman movie director Richard Donner is once again teaming up with writer Geoff Johns to write a story as well.Current Superman writers Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason along with current Action Comics writer Dan Jurgens are also joining the festivities. Other contributors include: Paul Dini with José Luis García-López; Tom King with Clay Mann and Jordie Bellaire; Brad Meltzer with John Cassaday and Laura Martin; Louise Simonson with Jerry Ordway; Scott Snyder with Tim Sale and several more.Action Comics #1000 releases on April 18.

Matt Ryan is more Andy Dalton than Aaron Rodgers

first_imgGuests:Doug Gottlieb – FS1 Analyst and host of The Doug Gottlieb Show is in-studio talking Thunder struggles; if Baker Mayfield can work in the NFL; and how Lonzo Ball impressed him in the 4th quarter against Philly.Metta World Peace – NBA champion with the Lakers is in-studio talking Lonzo Ball start to the season; why he likes Lonzo’s game; what he was like as a rookie.Rob Parker – FS1 Analyst is in-studio to explain why Lonzo is a bust, and why Eli should step aside. Matt Ryan is more Andy Dalton than Aaron RodgersAfter an MVP year and a Super Bowl run, many were saying that Matt Ryan had entered the small, elite echelon of quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers. Colin never bought in.He thinks Ryan is a solid B level quarterback, but points out that his career year in 2016 was an outlier to the rest of his seasons since entering the league. When comparing stats, Ryan’s numbers pale in comparison to Rodgers, but are almost identical to mediocre standard bearer Andy Dalton. Polarizing Lonzo Ball is great for the NBALonzo Ball had a game-winning assist in Philadelphia in the latest chapter to his up and down NBA rookie year. While the debate rages in the media and among fans if Ball is a bust or will eventually work out, regardless of the answer Colin thinks he’s good for the NBA because he’s polarizing.He calls Ball a “pick a side guy,” meaning people either love him or hate him, with few in the middle. Even if he’s not a star in the end people will still be invested in following his story to see how it works out.Last night, Lonzo was furiously booed, but the fans still had to show up to do it.Also:Colin’s NFL Week 14 Blazin’ 5last_img read more
