Highly contagious bird flu found in Japan; culling starts

Japan has begun culling more than 300,000 chickens and ducks following the discovery of a highly contagious form of bird flu on farms in the north of the country.

The government confirmed that the highly virulent H5 strain was detected in birds at a chicken farm in Niigata, where about 40 of them were found dead Monday. Meanwhile the Aomori Prefectural Government was culling about 16,500 birds at a farm where ducks tested positive for the H5 bird flu strain in preliminary testing Monday.

South Korea’s bird flu outbreak comes amid a growing number of cases in several other countries, including France and Germany.

After enforcing stringent precautionary measures in France to protect the country’s foie gras farms, agriculture officials have reported the detection of H5N8 in 20 wild ducks in the country, prompting worries about the virus’ spread despite the fact that surveillance efforts have found no new cases in French commercial farms.

At the same time, the vets required cooperation with hunters and ornithologists to report to the authorities in case they identify dead birds.

Officials restricted the movements of poultry and eggs within 3 kilometers (5 miles) of the infected farms.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe issued instructions to collect necessary information from the affected areas, to provide the public with accurate information as quickly as possible, and to have relevant ministries swiftly implement necessary steps through close cooperation.

Japan culled some 200,000 chicken in 2015 following an outbreak of highly pathogenic bird flu in Okayama prefecture, western Japan.

AT&T launches long-awaited online TV streaming service

It’s unclear if AT&T’s new service, dubbed DirecTV Now, will break out with consumers.

AT&T has launched its OTT TV service DirecTV Now, along with two other streaming options – FreeVIEW and Fullscreen.

In a broader view, the good news is that DirecTV Now appears to be a sign TV providers are increasingly willing to adapt their services to the ways people actually live. Through streaming videos to TV and mobile devices, the need of satellite dish, cable box and other annual contracts would be eliminated, changing the way customers watch their favorite shows any time they want.

DirecTV Now may have another draw: Paying in advance for three months gets you a free Apple TV, which is cheaper than buying one new from Apple.

The 39-year-old claimed he was held against his will in an apartment on East 28th Street in Manhattan from approximately 6 p.m. Elkann’s Italia Independent design company lost over 7% on the stock exchange on Tuesday after the reports came out.

Moreover, to celebrate the big DirecTV Now launch, AT&T is pricing its “Go Big” programming package at just $35 per month as a limited-time offer.

The bundled TV service will launch on Wednesday as an app for iPhone and Android smartphones and tablets, on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Chromecast connected-TV devices, and on the LeEco smart TV.

While Stankey said that subscribers in owned and operated markets will be able to watch National Football League games live on Fox and NBC, the feed will not be available to mobile subscribers in those markets, as Verizon retains exclusive National Football League mobile streaming rights.

Meanwhile, DirecTV Now also will not be available initially on Roku devices, with support for those along with connected TV platforms slated for 2017.

Most of the details about DirecTV Now have been reported, including the price of $35 per month, a lineup of more than 100 channels, and the ability to add on premium networks like HBO and Starz. Next year, Hulu plans to launch a live-TV element to complement its Netflix-like library of on-demand TV shows and original series. Stankey said AT&T is now in discussions with station groups to add local TV in more markets.

In addition to the 60- and 120-channel tiers, DirecTV Now will feature a $50-a-month, 80-plus channel package and a $60-a-month subscription offering 100 channels. AT&T Mobility customers won’t have to pay for data chargers, either. AT&T will continue to offer U-verse TV and internet service. The most conspicuous omission there is Roku, which AT&T says will come sometime next year.

It’s not clear what channel offerings are available on what packages.

Customers can opt for an Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote included with 1 month pre-paid of any DIRECTV NOW package.

No Man’s Sky Studio Hello Games Responds To Controversy, Outlines Foundation Update

This latest updates however, is the most substantial one yet and may help No Man’s Sky attract former and new players to the game.

Supposedly, the new update will be targeting the base building to provide some form of foundation.

Get the full message below.

Though detailed patch notes and a release for said Foundation Update what we know for now is that yes, a base building element of sorts is being added.

Max Holloway Completely Focused In On Anthony Pettis
Conor McGregor’s historic reign as a simultaneous two-division champion has ended. “I knew for certain that this would happen”. The moment I lost, I knew the belt would be mine.

In its recent press release, Hello Games addressed these issues saying “The discussion around No Man’s Sky since its release has been intense and dramatic”. It can be recalled that the last patch arrived on September 24, bringing fixes to the most common, critical bugs and issues players encountered after the launch.

“In the nine weeks since [release] our small team has been hard at work on development, testing and certification for the Foundation Update”. Those who have been expecting more exploration activities and hardcore challenges apparently were dismayed by the fact that the game did not fulfill their expectations, considering that “No Man’s Sky” was greatly hyped before its release. The November 25 announcement highlights the attention given by the company to positive or negative feedback it received from disappointed fans. They say it won’t be a massive update but is the beginning of a long journey of patches for the game. Does the promise of extensive updates give you some hope?

Hello Games CEO Sean Murray admitted that they preferred to stay quiet during the heated arguements about the game. Players can also take advantage of the new item stacking feature and the new in-game Quick Access item menu. “No Man’s Sky” is now available across platforms.

No Man’s Sky” is now available on the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.

This new foundation update will hopefully bring some cool new features that will expand the gameplay.

Microsoft Surface Phone And Surface Pro 5 Excitement Builds

“We will continue to be in the phone market not as defined by today’s market leaders, but by what it is that we can uniquely do in what is the most ultimate mobile device“, Nadella said told Australian Financial Review.

While Nadella has talked about the Surface Phone recently, teasing that the device is both unique and a game-changer in the making, he stopped short of revealing the juicy details such as basic specifications and possible release timing. But the obvious conclusion here is that Microsoft will be debuting a smartphone in the near future that demands an “ultimate” moniker.

The overall list of key technical specifications concerning the unreleased/unannounced Microsoft Surface Phone are yet to even surface now.

Trump offers NSA post to Michael Flynn
DAVID WELNA, BYLINE: General Flynn made his name as a crack army intelligence officer in Iraq and Afghanistan . Flynn also wrote that radical Islamist militants seek to “eagerly drink the blood of their dying enemies”.

There is a lot of excitement for the Surface Phone on Twitter. Everyone not living under a digital rock knows what that device would be.

Rumors mill expects that the Surface Phone will have three versions: a consumer model, a business model, and an enthusiast edition.

What will the Surface Phone bring? The phone will also supposedly come in two variants, one with 6GB of RAM and the other with 4GB of RAM. The 6GB variant will be able to run x86 apps through Continuum, but the 4GB variant will not. If those rumors are true, having the Snapdragon 835 SoC will provide better battery life, a significant performance improvement, and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0.

3 dead in Panama rains linked to Tropical Storm Otto
Otto is moving westward at approximately 2 miles per hour , according to an advisory issued by the hurricane center at 3 p.m. Forecasters say Otto has gained hurricane status in the Carribbean as it edges closer to parts of Central America.

Most educated guesses being made right now are tipping one or more Surface Phones to appear in April 2017 alongside the next major Windows 10 update, codenamed Redstone 2, so we’ve still got a good few months of rumors to get through yet.

Older rumors have also hinted at the Surface Phone packing in support for a fingerprint scanner, a 21 MP primary camera, an 8 MP selfie snapper and have multiple variants.

The report also suggests a 5.5-inch display size for one or possibly two Surface Phone devices, while “laptop accessories” (think keyboards and a stylus) have also been mooted, though nothing seems set in stone just yet. However, Windows 10 Mobile isn’t up to par with Android and iOS in terms of app quality and variety, and there’s enough reason to believe that the gap won’t be bridged anytime soon.

Trump adviser warns him not to pick Romney for Secretary of State

Chris Collins (R-NY) joined the trove of loyalists to President-elect Donald Trump who are opposed to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney becoming the next Secretary of State.

“They feel betrayed to think that you can get Romney back in there after everything he did – we don’t even know if he voted for Donald Trump“.

MSNBC reported this morning that two top aides on the Trump transition team said the president-elect was “furious” with Conway for speaking out against Romney and they indicated that her “baffling” remarks were an attempt to drive her own agenda rather than Trump’s. She noted that Romney is one contender among others being considered for secretary of state.

But Dakota Access pipeline protesters say they don’t intend to leave their encampment in the near future. Army Corps of Engineers action came quickly after November 15 related filings in a Washington, D.C.

Her comments left Trump furious, according to a political insider, and he and other top aides for the Trump transition team are anxious that Conway is trying to go rogue and push her own agenda onto the American public, according to CNBC. He’ll meet with Corker and Romney again on Tuesday, his transition team said.

“We have a response from Kellyanne Conway who says, about our report this morning, ‘It is sexist.’ She says she can have any job she wants and is thinking about taking a role inside and outside the campaign”, Scarborough read. “So I think there are concerns that those of us who are loyal have and you want somebody – you want a secretary of state who is loyal to the president and loyal to the president’s vision of the world”. Conway had said that Trump supporters did not like the idea of nominating Romney, because of his fierce opposition to Trump’s presidential bid.

Some strategists suggested Monday that Conway’s weekend comments were carefully coordinated so Trump could say he tried to reach out to the party’s establishment wing.

Aamir went through ‘dramatic body transformation’ for ‘Dangal’

It is also for a reason that he has earned the “perfectionist” tag since so many years. To play the younger version of the celebrated wrestler who trained his daughters to be champion wrestlers themselves, Aamir Khan went from 90-95 kg for the older Mahavir Phogat to 70-75 kg for the younger man. I was advised two months’ bed rest and didn’t have that much time.

The actor reveals that his wife Kiran Rao and his mother got really anxious about his extreme weight gain and loss for “Dangal”. But he challenged himself and today the result is in front of us. The actor looked unrecognisable at the sets of the film and several events where he was spotted.

#The journey was very scary.

“Kiran (Rao) and my mother were anxious about my health”. But I was not, as I had to focus into getting in shape and complete the shooting. He first gained over 27 kilos and then lost them for his role based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat. Sources say that “Dangal” is expected to be released in a mega way across the country and in Tamil, too, it will have maximum screens. To shoot one sequence, we had to travel to Ludhiana again from Mumbai. It was actually very very painful. “Papa mote ho rahehai, he used to see”. He is very small to understand things, he was seeing me become fat. But losing weight is, even more, harder than that. The dedication of this actor to the characters he plays has always been unmatched! Do you agree BollywoodLifers?

Amazon’s Fire tablets are moderately priced options on any day, and Amazon tends to discount them heavily for holidays. We couldn’t find a model number, but this is a great price for an ultra-high-definition set of this size.

While his last character was quite muscular, the actor revealed that this one will have a leaner look. “It was Kiran, my mom and the people close to me, who were scared”, he says. “You can not get that from a bodysuit”. His daughters went on to win India’s first medals in female wrestling at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Leah Remini Told Some Insane Scientology Stories on Her Reddit AMA

Remini indicated that Cruise, arguably the most famous Scientologist, is held in high regard within the Church.

In a statement, the church told the Today show, “Leah Remini needs to move on with her life and career and stop blaming the Church and others for all of her personal and professional setbacks.

She’s not like the rest of them.'” James, a practicing Catholic, later supported Leah’s decision to leave her longtime church, telling In Touch Weekly, “If [leaving Scientology] makes her happy, I’m very excited about that”.

It arrives on the heels of Alex Gibney’s HBO documentary “Going Clear”, which was based on New Yorker staff writer Lawrence Wright’s meticulously researched book of the same name, and is a companion piece of sorts to Remini’s memoir, “Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology”, released a year ago.

IBTimes UK has reached out to the actor and the Church of Scientology for comment and is awaiting a response. Basically, if you try to talk bad about them, they will complain to Leah Remini.

Watch Charlotte vs Sasha Banks live online, on TV
Raw rolls into Flair Country tonight as Charlotte Flair defends her Championship against Sasha Banks in her native North Carolina. And in a bit of a surprise – but one that we probably should have seen coming – Sasha once again regained the women’s title.

“The first declared dispute directly follows that overall disclaimer, starting with, “.viewers should know the duplicity at work when Ms. Remini stage-managed her departure from the Church of Scientology.

Remini’s fierceness, her unshakeable resolve, and her attack-dog instincts certainly make her a worthy opponent for the “religious system” founded by the science-fiction author L. Ron Hubbard in 1954″. She was attending Tom Cruise’s wedding to Katie Holmes and she says there were many top Scientology officials at the event. Now, in the aftermath of her defection from the controversial organization, Leah’s onetime friends can no longer speak to her as per church policy.

Remini’s screen persona, dating back to the odd beach season of Saved by the Bell, has always included a certain toughness, and that carries through here.

Scobee also alleges that at the age of 14, she had sex with her Scientology boss, a 35-year-old married man. The series benefits immensely.

Oh boy! Actress Leah Remini is probably stepping her security up a notch after her latest interview. Then, after the divorce, the series claims that the church’s mission was to get Cruise to rejoin. One of their most sold books Inside Scientology is also available online. The premiere includes Amy Scobee, once a senior executive.

Tom Cruise’s involvement in the church and the desire to keep him in Scientology is a big topic.

“I think they did an wonderful job and they cleared the path for people like me to speak about it”, she said of “Going Clear”.

Former “King of Queens” star Leah Remini, pictured at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Jan. 20, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, wants to give the victims of Scientology a voice. It’s a lot of sitting around talking, interspersed with footage from fairly innocuous Scientology promotional videos and event interviews.

“I don’t think he normalized it at all”. Instead, they allegedly made Scobee feel it was her fault and that she needed to continue improving to prevent it from happening again. The “Coming up this season.” reel features Remini saying, “We’re hearing the same story over and over again”, and that’s honestly my fear when it comes to eight episodes of Scientology and the Aftermath.

Kanye West: Is He Putting A Spotlight On Celebrity Mental Health?

Kanye West exploded onto the music scene in the early 2000’s by producing a series of classic records by artists Jay-Z, Scarface and Alicia Keys. Soon, he embarked on his own solo career and released a variety of game-changing albums such as The College Dropout, 808’s & Heartbreak and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. One particular skill West possesses besides self-producing and writing his own records was his honesty and expression through his music. He even would do the same in interviews and on stage, garnering a perception of not just a talented musician, but someone for the people. But as of late, those same traits that made him beloved by so many fans and critics of music, became bizarre rants on Jay-Z, Beyonce, Donald Trump over this past month. Kanye West [Featured image by Jonathan Leibson/Getty Images] The rants, coupled with walking off stage and canceling his Saint Pablo Tour, caused West to become hospitalized since November. 21 for mental exhaustion, sleep deprivation, paranoia and psychosis. Although he’s been in the hospital for nine days, his mental stability has not shown any signs of improvement. After the general public have watched mental breakdowns of Britney Spears and Amanda Bynes over the past few years, many have wondered now have one of the most famous, and talented musicians of the modern era have brought a light on the state of mental stability among celebrities? A Billboard.com article focused on West’s recent pattern of behaviors, shed light on insight provided by well-known mental experts on what could possibly have went wrong for West. The general consensus concluded sleep deprivation and over-working may have caused West’s bizarre episodes. “If someone remains in the hospital [after an event like this] it may just mean that they need to be in the hospital that long to get well,” Dr. Jody M. Rawles, a psychiatrist and the Vice Chair of Clinical Affairs in the psychiatry department at the University of California-Irvine, told Billboard. Dr. Rawles, who has no first-hand knowledge of the situation and has not treated West in the past, said when his team admits someone under similar circumstances they will keep them in the hospital as long as is necessary, but not a day longer, because staying in a hospital environment for too long can be detrimental to a patient’s health. Another mental health expert, Rusty Selix, also chimed in on that same article on the effects sleep deprivation can have on someone’s mental health. Which of course caused West to overreact. “If this were an isolated incident and there was no other evidence of anything happening before — certainly someone who is sleep deprived can get into an altered state of reality,” Rusty Selix, a California lawyer, mental health advocate and director of policy and advocacy at the California Council of Community Mental Health Agencies told Billboard. Selix — who is not a physician and also has no first-hand knowledge of the West case, but who consults with a number of California mental health non-profit agencies — said Kim Kardashian’s alleged comments about various medications could indicate an underlying mental illness. “Sleep deprivation alone is very severe and can cause all kinds of conditions… and when someone gets into a manic phase where they don’t sleep for days they can get a powerful high from that manic energy and then crash,” he said. “From the comments made by his wife there seems to be an awareness that there is a mental illness involved that it has to be managed and they likely don’t want to talk about it because it’s a highly stigmatized [thing].

'The View' Hosts Feud: Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg Getting Along Fine Despite Rumors?

The View hosts have been known to feud from time to time, but it appears that recent talks of a rift between Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar are false once again. After several reports of The View hosts being at each other’s throats in October, the gossip has quieted down in the media quite a bit. Things appear to be going well between Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar these days. In fact, Behar was reportedly one of Whoopi Goldberg’s guests at her recent birthday celebration, according to Page Six. This is not the first time that Goldberg, 61, and Behar, 74, have been pitted against each other in rumors about The View hosts feuding. Last year, Goldberg was said to have been unhappy when Behar was rehired to co-host The View. However, both women have slammed these rumors as being untrue. (L-R) Joy Behar, actress Grace Hightower and Whoopi Goldberg. [Image by Joe Corrigan/Getty Images] The View co-host Jedediah Bila has also dismissed talks that there have been disputes among the hosts of the show. “It’s all about respect,” she told TV Insider. “We’re faking nothing. I would happily hang out with any of these women after work. Sara has become like a sister to me. Whoopi still has me start struck, and even when we disagree she embraces me. Joy is one of the funniest people I know. I love all of them. Every single one. The people in Congress may not have respect for one another, but you sure see it on The View. The show is a safe place to grow and blossom, regardless of your opinions,” she said. The recent reports about The View hosts’ feud were centered on an insider’s revelation that Behar has her eyes set on Goldberg’s moderator role when the latter leaves the show at the end of the season. According to Radar Online, Behar, 74, has hinted at the possibility of leaving The View if she is not made the ringleader of the show next season. “Joy’s had to work under Whoopi’s thumb for years – it’s grated on her. She believes this is her time to shine.” The insider, however, noted that this alleged feud could “spell the end of the line” for both women as the producers of the show are considering bringing in new panelists. Whoopi Goldberg has been a co-host on The View since 2007. However, Behar is the longest running panelist on The View, and was one of the show’s original co-hosts. In 2013, Behar left the show to focus on her other interests, which includes playwriting and stand-up comedy. She returned to The View as a regular host two years later.

Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail! — Donald J.
