Rotten Tomatoes seeks proof you saw the movie youre rating

first_imgRotten Tomato audience reviews of Captain Marvel sparked controversy earlier this year. Marvel More changes are coming to review site Rotten Tomatoes. As of Thursday, the audience score for new movies added to the site will default to show ratings from fans confirmed to have purchased tickets to those films.”The goal is to strengthen consumer confidence around that audience score,” said Greg Ferris, vice president of product for Rotten Tomatoes’ parent company, Fandango.rt-more-info-verifiedEnlarge ImageThe Rotten Tomatoes audience score will now show the rating from verified ticket purchasers as its default. Users can click on the tab marked “all audience” to see the combined score from all audience reviews. Rotten Tomatoes Here’s how it’ll work: Any site user will still be able to write a review of a film. But now users can opt to have their rating and review marked as “verified.” That means they bought their film ticket on Fandango, the movie-ticketing site that owns Rotten Tomatoes. Later this year, AMC Theatres and Regal and Cinemark ticketing sites will also be participating. So if you buy your ticket for Aladdin at the box office, for example, sorry, but you can’t get verified for that review. (At least for now: Dana Benson, Fandango vice president for communications, says that the site is “exploring options” for ways to verify box office purchases.)Reviews associated with a ticket purchase will be marked with a “verified” icon. By default, the verified reviews will be used to make up the audience score shown on Rotten Tomatoes. To see the total audience score, including reviews by those who didn’t purchase through Fandango or didn’t opt in to the verification, users can select the “all audience” tab.”Every rating counts, but the score that we’re putting out there is verified,” Ferris said.The Rotten Tomatoes site will automatically verify that a ticket was purchased and that the time for that movie showing has already passed. For now, only one verified review will be allowed per transaction, no matter how many tickets were purchased. 1 Comment Flip through 32 Marvel-ous images from this super exhibit Share your voice Rotten Tomatoes president: We didn’t change site to protect Captain Marvel Kevin Feige says Marvel didn’t want Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man Avengers: Endgame passes $2 billion, is now No. 2 movie of all time 32 Photos More on movies The changes will affect only movies opening Thursday and beyond, and won’t be retroactively applied to movies already on the site. The fan rating system previously used on Fandango’s site will be replaced there with the Rotten Tomatoes score.The change is similar to an element used on Amazon. Reviews written by those who bought a particular product on that site are marked with the words “Verified Purchase.”fandango-reviewsEnlarge ImageFandango will also display Rotten Tomatoes reviews, complete with the “Verified” indicator when a ticket purchase has been confirmed. Rotten Tomatoes Rotten Tomatoes is perhaps best known for the Tomatometer, which tells readers at a glance whether a film has mostly positive or negative reviews from professional critics. But the audience-score section of each movie page is also prominent.  “Our research shows movie fans leverage both (critic and audience ratings),” Ferris said. The changes are meant to “protect the integrity of the audience score,” he added.The audience-score section of the Captain Marvel movie page made the news back in February. Even before the film was released March 8, users were leaving negative comments about it, with some reacting angrily to public comments made by star Brie Larson. Larson drew fire in part for telling Marie Claire magazine that the critics covering her films were “overwhelmingly white male” and noting that she was reaching out to a more inclusive group of critics. That resulted in some Rotten Tomatoes users leaving such comments as “Larson has made it clear … men need not attend this movie.” Back in February, Rotten Tomatoes disabled the comment function prior to a movie’s release date and made some other changes.There’s clearly a trend toward using a movie-review site to express anger about a film for reasons other than its content. That may not be the only reason for adding and elevating the verified review component, but it’s surely in the mix.”It’s a component that we don’t ignore,” said Lori Pantel, chief marketing officer for Fandango.Said Benson, “Anyone who is in this space, who has an open platform, is looking at this.”  Tags TV and Movieslast_img read more

Legislatures capital budget impasse could delay Haines Highway project

first_imgHaines residents look at a map of the Haines Highway at a project information meeting in 2015. (Jillian Rogers)A major Haines infrastructure project that is years in the making may have to wait a little longer.Listen nowConstruction on the Haines Highway improvement project was expected to begin this fall. But the Alaska Legislature’s failure to agree on a capital budget could delay this and more than 20 other transportation projects.Without a state budget, the Alaska Department of Transportation can’t access millions of dollars in federal money for infrastructure developments.Phase one of the Haines Highway construction, which deals with miles 3 through 12, is estimated to cost around $40 million. Federal highway funding should pay for 90 percent of the bill. But not until the state approves it’s about $4 million in matching funds. That’s part of the capital budget.DOT spokeswoman Aurah Landau said the department anticipated advertising the project for construction bids in late July. It will have to put that off until a capital spending plan is passed.Landau said the Federal Highway Administration fiscal year ends Sept. 30. If the capital budget is still in limbo at that time, it would cause a more serious delay.The legislature passed an operating budget in June, narrowly avoiding a government shutdown. It is meeting now in a special session focused on oil tax legislation.The Haines Highway renovation isn’t the only DOT infrastructure project affected by the capital budget. The Alaska Marine Highway ferry Tustumena replacement is the highest-dollar item on the list. Road and bridge renovations from Ketchikan to Fairbanks are also affected.The aim of the Haines Highway project is to improve the safety of the corridor connecting Haines and Canada. It will bring the road up to 55-mile-per-hour standards by widening shoulders and straightening curves.Construction on the highway is expected to last several years. The total cost is around $100 million.last_img read more

Death toll in Pakistan tanker fire hits 153

first_imgIn this handout photograph released by the Inter Service Public Relation (ISPR) on 26 June, 2017, Pakistani soldiers transfer a burn victim from a C-130 plane in Lahore, a day after an oil tanker fire following an accident on a highway near the town of Ahmedpur East. Photo: AFPPakistan began Eid in mourning Monday as the death toll in an oil tanker explosion rose to 153, with scores injured after they were caught in a fireball while scooping up spilled fuel.Dozens of relatives were waiting outside hospitals in Bahawalpur, the nearest major city, to claim the bodies of their loved ones as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif arrived early Monday to visit victims after cutting short a visit to London.The explosion ignited early Sunday as crowds ignored warnings to stay away from the tanker which had overturned on a main highway from Karachi to Lahore, spilling some 40,000 litres of fuel.Police have said details remain unconfirmed, but cited witnesses who said the tanker’s tyre had burst.The accident quickly drew scores of people from a nearby village, many armed with whatever containers they could carry to scavenge the spilled fuel despite warnings from the driver, who survived the crash and was later taken into custody, and motorway police, to stay away.Minutes later the tanker exploded, engulfing the crowd as well as dozens of other vehicles in a massive fireball that sent a plume of thick smoke into the sky.“The death toll has climbed to 153, and many are in critical condition in various hospitals in Bahawalpur and Multan,” Javed Iqbal, chief of Victoria hospital told AFP.State television aired images of Sharif arriving in Bahawalpur, and said he will visit victims at the hospital after being briefed on the incident.The accident came after at least 69 people were killed in a series of militant attacks across Pakistan on Friday, compounding the country’s sense of grief as Ramadan, Islam’s holiest month, came to a close.Pakistan has an appalling record of fatal traffic accidents due to poor roads, badly maintained vehicles and reckless driving.The country has also long struggled to alleviate a chronic energy crisis, with regular blackouts crippling industry and exacerbating anger against the government.Villagers near the town of Ahmedpur East, where the accident occurred, told AFP Sunday they were in shock after the accident.“What is the use of this petrol, what will you do with it now?” asked resident Mohammad Shabbir, pointing to a bucket of scavenged fuel in his hand.last_img read more

The Xbox Adaptive Controller Packaging is Also Accessible

first_img Microsoft took great strides in making gaming more accessible when it revealed the Xbox Adaptive Controller. This device is specifically made for gamers with disabilities thanks to its innovative design. For folks like AbleGamers’ Steven Spohn and many other games out there, the XAC is a godsend. It should come as no surprise that a controller like this will have packaging that is also accessible.The animation below illustrates how the packaging works. As you can see, both the single-shipper and retail package are accessible. As stated over on Xbox Wire, every major step of the unboxing process incorporates loops.This begins with the tear-strip on the single shipper. Removing the tear strip opens the shipping package to reveal the retail box within. This box has a “break-the-seal’ label and has two loops for multi-directional removal. This box has a grey loop which one pulls to open the retail package. There are also integrated loops on the paper Quick Start Guide and cable folio. In total, the XAC packaging has five loops from start to finish.AdChoices广告There is an open area under the controller which makes it easy to remove in multiple ways. This includes pulling on the loop or sliding it out directly. The box even has a low center of gravity which makes unboxing the package easier for the user. The hinged lid has single-pivot access, making it so users have to use minimal force to open it.“With the Xbox Adaptive Controller, we knew we had to make the packaging accessible for gamers with limited mobility,” said Kevin Marshall & Mark Weiser, PAC Design on Xbox Wire. “That required us to re-think some things about how we package our products, including what type of moments would be most meaningful. It was critically important that we incorporate accessibility into the packaging design and unboxing experience. The out-of-box experience is the first thing customers encounter when they purchase our products and it’s important that we get that right.“With the Xbox Adaptive Controller, we aimed to do something new and different in the packaging space and push the boundaries beyond what has been done before at Microsoft. We had to ask ourselves, ‘What does this packaging need to do?’ That’s where we began re-approaching our assumptions on what accessible packaging needed to be. There’s lots that can be done in the ‘accessibility’ packaging space, but for this job, we were focused on making the packaging more accessible in the area of mobility, specifically.“This challenged everything we knew at Microsoft about packaging requirements, and how we needed to gauge success. In fact, beta testers were a significant part of the early review process and much of the final design elements can be contributed to their feedback. It was important for us to understand what was useful on a package, and what should be avoided. Insights gleaned from beta testers and UX respondents were invaluable during our creative explorations.”Lastly, Marshall and Weiser said: “It was through continued engagement with the disability community and research groups that we grew our understanding of what accessible packaging could include. Every time we approach packaging in a new way, we strive to learn as much as we can and leverage those insights across all our work. The Xbox Adaptive Controller required us to think in depth about accessibility in packaging, and we believe it is a powerful milestone on our accessibility journey.”The Xbox Adaptive Controller will release this September for $99.99.

Graphene nanoribbons grow due to dominolike effect

first_img Explore further Long and narrow, free of defects, and soluble: graphene nanoribbons by bottom-up synthesis (PhysOrg.com) — While many labs are trying to efficiently synthesize large two-dimensional sheets of graphene, a team of researchers from Sweden and the UK is investigating the synthesis of very thin strips of graphene just a few atoms wide. In contrast to graphene, these graphene nanoribbons have a unique electronic structure including a non-zero band gap, which makes them promising candidates for semiconductor applications. But, as with graphene sheets, one of the greatest challenges for now is finding a way to efficiently synthesize these graphene nanoribbons. In their study, researchers Jonas Björk and Sven Stafström from Linköping University in Sweden and Felix Hanke from the University of Liverpool in the UK have used a powerful supercomputer at Linköping University to investigate how graphene nanoribbons grow from an anthracene polymer on a gold substrate. The results of their study are published in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.The scientists discovered that, in the most likely nanoribbon growth process, the gold substrate acts as more than just a support where the reaction can take place. The gold actually catalyzes the reaction by attracting hydrogen atoms from the anthracene polymer (which is made of benzene rings) to bind to the gold surface, initiating the first step of the reaction. In this “dehydrogenation” process, two hydrogen atoms from each unit of the anthracene polymer are transferred to the gold surface, leaving behind a carbon-carbon bond. The carbon-carbon bond forms part of graphene’s honeycomb lattice. Meanwhile, the hydrogen atoms are released from the gold surface through desorption into the vacuum. The supercomputer also revealed that this dehydrogenation reaction repeats due to the effects of positive cooperativity: When a polymer unit has a neighbor that has a carbon-carbon bond, its probability for undergoing the same reaction and gaining its own carbon-carbon bond increases. The result is that the reaction, which starts at one end of the polymer, propagates unit by unit through the entire polymer in a domino-like fashion. After several minutes, the entire polymer is transformed into a well-defined graphene nanoribbon with a width of seven carbon atoms.Figuring out how graphene nanoribbons are synthesized in this way is a complicated molecular-scale process that can only be unraveled in detail by powerful supercomputers. Although there are a few other reaction pathways that the reaction could take, the researchers calculated that this reaction is very highly favored over the others: They estimated that 10,000 reactions proceed along this route than by the second most favorable reaction. Understanding the reaction will allow the researchers to identify the best fabrication method for future experiments and development. “This is a question about how to build materials, either ‘bottom-up’ (synthesis from its constituents) vs. ‘top-down’ (taking something bigger and cutting it to size),” Hanke told PhysOrg.com. “The bottom-up in the graphene nanoribbons approach is very interesting as it allows us to start with the ultimate size limit for a material (an atom, or, say, a small molecule) and then add only those pieces that are really, really needed. Moreover, it also allows us to make graphene nanoribbons that have consistently the same width of, say, seven Angstroms (7×10-10 m), simply by making sure that the ingredients are only polyanthracene and not anything much bigger. This sounds trivial, but it is actually very difficult to achieve in top-down approaches, particularly if atomic precision is desired.”The applications of graphene nanoribbons (and graphene itself) are still in the very early stages, but their properties make the materials look promising. Previous studies have shown that controlling the widths and edge structures of graphene nanoribbons can tune the ribbons’ electronic properties, which could lead to molecular-based electronics such as transistors. By gaining a better understanding of how graphene nanoribbons grow, including the catalytic role of the gold substrate and domino effect of the reaction, scientists have taken another step toward this future technology.“The main hype behind graphene nanoribbons is that you should be able to use them for semiconductor applications, which is due to their highly desirable electronic structure that is different from the electronic structure of graphene,” Hanke said. “The beauty of graphene nanoribbons is that their electronic response is determined simply by their shape. Therefore, being able to understand and build graphene nanoribbons in a controlled manner is a very important process for the continued development of electronics. In particular for anthracene-based nanoribbons, we have a width that is still about 30 times smaller than what is available in current semiconductor-based electronics.” Copyright 2011 PhysOrg.com.

Costa Ricas Chinchilla gets lowest approval rating on record

first_imgCosta Rican President Laura Chinchilla is themost unpopular president in over 20 years, according to a survey published Monday in the daily La Nación. Six out of 10 Costa Ricans rated the president’s performance as “poor” or “very poor,” the lowest approval rating since the polling agency Unimer started collecting results in 1991, according to La Nación. Only 9 percent of those surveyed rated the National Liberation Party (PLN) leader’s performance as “good” or “very good.”According to Unimer, President José María Figueres was the last president to hold the ignoble honor with a 57 percent disapproval rating in 1995.Another 31 percent rated Chinchilla’s work as “moderate.”Anyone who has opened a newspaper during the last two years can see that the president’s term has been rife with corruption scandals and general discontent.Most recently, the president’s administration has been ensnared in a conflict-of-interest scandal involving a Chinese-funded oil refinery expansion in Moín, Limón, on the Caribbean coast, a trip to Peru on a private plane owned or operated by someone with alleged ties to drug trafficking, and strikes from teachers and public-sector unions.Chinchilla’s government also hit a bump with the bloated $40 million Route 1856 highway along the northern border with Nicaragua, and the failed improvement project to the San José-San Ramón highway.The president is not likely to get any sympathy from her predecesor, President Óscar Arias. Over the weekend, Arias slammed her governance in a video from Repretel. Chinchilla served as Arias’ vice president and minister of justice during his most recent term in office, from 2006 to 2010.While the president’s plunging approval ratings don’t bode well for her remaining time in office, they may have a lasting affect on Ticos.According to a 2012 survey from the Latin American Public Opinion Project at Vanderbilt University, Costa Ricans reported their lowest support for democracy and the political system since the group started collecting data in the 1970s.LAPOP’s report cited Chinchilla’s perceived performance and corruption as the two principle causes of Tico’s falling opinions of democracy and their political system.Chinchilla ends her four-year term as president in May 2014.
