Rapper sues makers of video game Fortnite over dance moves

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Rapper 2 Milly filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the makers of “Fortnite,” saying they are illegally using a dance he created in their wildly popular video game.The Brooklyn-based rapper, whose real name is Terrence Ferguson, alleges that North Carolina-based “Fortnite”-maker Epic Games misappropriated his moves without compensation or credit in the lawsuit filed in federal court in Los Angeles.The lawsuit states that the dance known on “Fortnite” as “Swipe It,” one of many that players can buy for their characters, is taken from the “Milly Rock,” a dance he came up with in 2011 that caught on as a craze in the summer of 2015 after the release of a song and video of the same name.Ferguson says that the game both steals his creation and as a result appropriates his likeness. He’s asking for a judge’s order that the game stop using the dance, and for damages to be determined later.“They never even asked my permission,” 2 Milly said in a statement.Epic Games spokesman Nick Chester declined comment.The fight-to-the-finish game “Fortnite” quickly became one of the most popular in history after its 2017 release.Players can use real-world money to buy in-game currency that gets their characters outfits, gear or “emotes,” brief dances that have become a cultural phenomenon performed on playgrounds, in social media posts and in the scoring celebrations of professional athletes.2 Milly is not the first prominent person to complain about Fortnight’s use of the moves.Chance the Rapper criticized the game for not including the songs behind some of its dances, giving artists a chance to share in its wealth.Actor Donald Faison, whose dance from the TV show “Scrubs” appear in an “emote,” tweeted in March, “Dear Fortnite … I’m flattered? Though part of me thinks I should talk to a lawyer.”Other than specific choreography within a specific copyrighted work, dance moves can be difficult to sue over.Jennifer Rothman, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, said in an email that 2 Milly may have a potential copyright claim or a right-of-publicity claim if the dance is a signature move that identifies him and would lead players to think he endorsed the game. But Epic Games’ free-speech rights may trump them.“There are likely to be First Amendment and fair use defences … in the context of a video game,” Rothman said, “which is understood as fully protected speech, on par with motion pictures and books.”Andrew Dalton, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Preeclampsia test could help save lives of hundreds of babies every year

first_imgPre-eclampsia can be fatal for both mother and baby Credit: Andrew Matthews Pre-eclampsia can be fatal for both mother and baby  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. A new test will allow pregnant women with a life-threatening disorder to carry their babies for longer and save the lives of up to 1,000 youngsters a year.Around three per cent of pregnant women suffer from pre-eclampsia where their blood pressure is raised to levels whcih threaten both mother and child.The only known cure is to deliver the baby.  But when pre-eclampsia occurs before 34 weeks of pregnancy doctors are faced with the difficult prospect of either inducing an extremely premature birth or waiting and placing both the mother and baby at great risk.An estimated 1,000 babies a year die from complications caused by pre-eclampsia but the new test can help doctors decide when it is safe to let the baby stay inside for longer.The test factors in a mother’s age, gestation at which pre-eclampsia was diagnosed, blood pressure, urine protein level, liver and kidney function, oxygen levels in blood and the need for treatment to control blood pressure and prevent seizures. It was able to predict the risk of complications in up to 84 per cent of mothers.The research was carried out at Queen Mary University of London, and funded by the National Institute for Health Research.Project lead Professor Shakila Thangaratinam, professor in maternal and perinatal health at Queen Mary said: “Women categorised to be low risk could be followed-up in an outpatient setting, with high-and very high-risk women monitored as inpatients with regular intensive monitoring.”Marcus Green, chief executive of the Action on pre-eclampsia (APEC) charity, which worked with the study team, said: ““This devastating condition frightens patients, comes on quickly, is unpredictable and can kill.“Knowing when to intervene and when to deliver is crucial and this work is very helpful in identifying the women who really need careful medical attention and to ensure they get the care they need.”The new research was published in the journal BMC Medicine.last_img read more

New born baby dies after being allegedly dumped in pit latrine

A 25-year-old woman is under police guard at the Georgetown Public Hospital following the death of her new born baby that was allegedly dumped into a pit latrine aback of her Goed Fortuin, West Bank Demerara home.Based on reports received, the woman, Priya (only name given) gave birth on Thursday to a baby boy but was reportedly unhappy since she was under pressure from her family about not knowing who was the child’s father.However, after giving birth, the woman reportedly placed the baby in the garbage bin and allegedly instructed her 5-year-old child to dispose of it in the latrine at the back of the yard.Following the instruction from his mother, the child obeyed as she allegedly looked on.The publication understands that a relative subsequently went to use the washroom and saw the baby in the pit.At the time, the baby was still moving.He immediately raised an alarm and the baby was pulled and rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital but died while receiving treatment from the doctors.Initially, the woman claimed that the baby was not hers but later admitted that she felt pains and later gave birth.A police source told INews that relatives informed the ranks at the La Grange Police Station of the incident and as such, the woman was arrested.The source related that during investigations, the seemingly confused woman told ranks that she went to use the toilet and it was then, the baby came down.However, during interrogation, the ranks realized that something was amiss after the baby’s umbilical cord was discovered in a drain in close proximity to the home.The woman was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where she is receiving medical attention while being under guard.Police are continuing their investigations.

Misfit City 1 Review

first_img Planet of the Apes: Visionaries is Unpredictable, Stunning and WildVariant Covers to Grab This Week (8/29/18) Misfit City #1(W) Kiwi Smith, Kurt Lustgarten (A) Naomi FranquizNothing’s happened in Wilder’s hometown since they filmed that cult kids’ adventure movie there in the 80s… but that’s ancient history. Until one day, she and her friends come upon a centuries-old pirate map drawn by someone named Black Mary…and find out there might be some REAL adventure in their tiny town after all!via BOOM! BoxMisfit City #1 is the start of a new series by writers Kiwi Smith and Kurt Lustgarten, artist Naomi Franquiz, and colorist Brittany Peer. Set in the fictional town of Cannon Cove, Oregon, the story focuses on a group of young women living in a tourist trap of a city, as a result of it being the filming place for a movie that is more or less The Goonies. The fictional movie, called The Gloomies, seems to follow the same basic premise of a rag tag group of kids in the 1980’s as they find a treasure map and go on an adventure. The movie is very popular in the world of Misfit City, and these young women have all grown up in a town that serves as a church for it, causing them to resent it. Then, the group ends up finding a treasure map of their own, and they have to admit that the adventure presented in the movie that has lingered over their life does have an appeal.I love the “meta” humor going on here, as the group grows up resenting the very story that they go on to follow through with. Writer Kiwi Smith, known for her work on the movies Legally Blonde, and 10 Things I Hate About You, has always had a keen sense of humor, and says that this story was inspired by a road trip through the Northwest. It just has a really good sense of what this series is, and it keeps everything light and fun. The introduction of the villains is a great scene that is just the right balance of hammy and sinister.  Between the tone and the Northwestern setting, it reminds me a lot of the Disney cartoon Gravity Falls, which is something I have missed dearly since it ended last February.via BOOM! BoxArtist Naomi Franquiz is the real standout of the issue for me though, reminding me a lot of Becky Cloonan, which is not at all a bad thing. She has great designs for all of the characters, which is important for a first issue that introduces so many. I love when an artist has an eye for fashion, and every character in this has a great outfit, but they also manage to all be different and not over the top. Colorist Brittany Peer and Franquiz work well together, giving this book the perfect feel as a fun story with just the slightest hints of something more sinister going on underneath the surface. Lots of colder colors make this the city that the story is set in feel all the more real, like a foggy northwestern city, with tall trees, mountains, and quaint little towns.  There’s something about Misfit City that really just gets it right, gets it fun, and I can’t wait for issue two. Misfit City #1 by writers Kiwi Smith and Kurt Lustgarten, artist Naomi Franquiz, and colorist Brittany Peer is in stores this week. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Create Your Own Awful Furry Friend in Sonic Forces

first_imgStay on target The upcoming Sonic Forces will let players create their own unique custom characters. This is something that could either be a big boon for the series or a (hilarious) disaster in the making.Players will be able to select from seven different animal species. These include hedgehogs (naturally), bears, birds, cats, dogs, and wolves. Another neat thing is that your custom character will pop up during Sonic Forces‘ main storyline. It’s not clear how involved they will be, but expect them to at least appear during cutscenes. Each one of these critters has their own set of moves and gadgets. You can see a bit of how customization works in the trailer below.Sega also released a short gameplay trailer featuring a custom character. Like Sonic Generations, Sonic Forces will have 2D sections. They still contain 3D graphics, but they’re presented from a two-dimensional perspective. You can see some of that action right below.Custom character options are a big deal these days so having the feature in Sonic Forces should go over well. I can totally see people creating some truly cool or grotesque characters with this tool. Based on the first trailer in this post, it appears that customization options will be limited. This will no doubt help to keep folks from creating anything overtly offensive. This is still a kid’s game after all, and Sega is no doubt trying to keep that sort of stuff to a minimum.However, the best/worst part about this is Sega seemingly celebrating the… passionate part of the Sonic fan base that deeply enjoys drawing their own awful characters, characters somehow even worse than Big the Cat. This isn’t surprising. The Sonic Twitter feed is all the official proof we need that Sega is aware of the dark meme parts of Sonic Culture. But canonizing what might as well be DeviantArt characters in the next big Sonic game is a new high/low.Sega might as well buy and republish Sonic Dreams Collection. It’s not like things could get any grosser.Sonic Forces will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this holiday season.

Anchorage police target drunk driving with new patrol unit

first_imgAnchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz (at podium), Commissioner Marc Luiken (left) and Police Chief Chris Tolley announce the launch of a new DUI patrol. (Photo by Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)Anchorage is assigning more police to handle drunk drivers.Listen nowCity and police officials held a press conference Wednesday to announce the expansion, funded by a $2 million federal grant through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration over five years. The money will help pay for a unit with six patrol officers, a sergeant and a clerk, all focused on curtailing impaired driving.A spokesman for the mayor’s administration said the police department lost a traffic unit in 2012 amid staffing cuts, but an ongoing expansion of the department has allowed for more hires. The grant means the federal government is picking up the tab for some of those hires, at least for the time being. Police Chief Chris Tolley said the city has seen a spike in DUI-related fatalities over the last two years: There were nine in 2014 and 14 in 2015, up from four to five annually in the years before that. He said the new unit will patrol between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., when drunk driving peaks, and he’s asking residents to help by calling police if they see a driver they think might be impaired.“This crime is 100 percent preventable,” Tolley said. “With our added enforcement and the involvement of the community, we believe we will make our streets safer, and we can achieve the goal of having zero traffic fatalities as a result of impaired driving. Know that in our city, if you drive impaired, you will get caught.”The new DUI unit is expected to start patrolling the second week in August.last_img read more

Ethnic groups responsible for stalled peace talks says Myanmar Army

first_imgGeneral Mutu Say Poe (L), chairman of the Karen National Union (KNU), speaks with Myanmar`s commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing (R) during a photo session at the third session of the Union Peace Conference in Naypyidaw on on 11 July 2018. Photo: AFPMyanmar military officials on Wednesday said stalled peace talks were “drowning” the country, blaming ethnic armed groups for the fighting that continues to rage in the country’s northern borderlands.Civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi has said that making peace is a top priority for her administration, but she shares power with the military, which has fought ethnic insurgencies for decades.At the start of a third round of Suu Kyi-led peace talks in the capital Naypyidaw Wednesday, Myanmar’s commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing suggested ethnic groups were responsible for the stalled peace process that he said was “drowning our country”.“I would like to urge you to wipe out the civil armed conflicts that hinder the development of the country,” he said.Defence minister Sein Win told AFP that ethnic militias were not doing enough to staunch ongoing conflict, saying they “need to control their people.”“If their people have no discipline, problems can happen,” he said.The six-day peace talks are an attempt by Suu Kyi, who came to power in 2016 after landslide elections, to bring more ethnic groups into a ceasefire accord.Ten groups are now signed up but at least seven, including some of the largest and most influential, are holding out, with Suu Kyi saying Wednesday they were “always welcome” to join.Progress has been hampered by continued clashes between the powerful military and armed insurgents fighting for more autonomy in northern Kachin and Shan states.The grinding conflicts play out away from the more prominent global headlines generated by violence in the country’s west, where the army has driven out some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims since August.More than a third of Myanmar’s townships are affected by unresolved conflict, according to a 2017 report from the Asia Foundation.Some of the fiercest clashes are happening in Myanmar’s northernmost Kachin State, where more than 100,000 people have been displaced by violence.Kachin Independence Army general Gunmaw told reporters as he arrived at his hotel Tuesday that one of the aims of the conference was to restore basic communication channels with the government.“We hope fighting will be decreased.”last_img

the 2019 Lok Sabha elections In 2018 three major BJP-ruled states will go to the polls: Rajasthan Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh With 230 Assembly seats and 29 Lok Sabha seats up for grabs Madhya Pradesh which usually goes to the polls in November-December is perhaps the most important of all With three consecutive victories the challenge before the ruling BJP maintaining its winning streak while contending with the anti-incumbency factor both at the state (13 years of Shivraj Singh Chouhan rule) and the Centre (four years of Narendra Modi government) Further complicating matters is the Congress resurgent under its new chief Rahul Gandhi which may pose a stiff challenge to the Narendra Modi – Amit Shah juggernaut Here is a rundown of the state politics ahead of the Assembly election: Demographics With a population of 72 crore Madhya Pradesh is India’s fifth most populous state It is divided into seven major regions: Malwa Bundelkhand Baghelkhand Nimar Mahakoshal Chambal and Gird According to the 2011 census only 28 percent of the population lived in the urban areas In 2001 the state’s sex ratio was 919 but improved 12 points by 2011 to reach 931 The literacy rate in Madhya Pradesh stood at 70 percent according to 2011 census which was lower than the national average of 74 percent Around 91 percent of the population in the state were Hindus while less than seven percent identified as Muslims With a population of over 1531 million Madhya Pradesh has the largest tribal population in India At least 19 out of the 50 districts are tribal-dominated Schedule Castes constitute 216 percent of the total population while Other Backward Castes (OBCs) form over 51 percent of the population File image of Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan PTI Key issues in the run up to the polls Madhya Pradesh is largely a rural state Crop failure in 2017 only exacerbated the farmer crisis The issue grabbed national headlines last June after farmers protest turned violent in Mandsaur According to this Firstpost article Madhya Pradesh farmers — like their counterparts in Gujarat and Rajasthan — have been facing the problem of low prices for crops and interference of commission agents According to a Hindustan Times report about one-tenth of the farmer suicides in the past 16 years took place between 2016 and 2017 With a farm loan waiver not in sight a report in Hindustan Times stated that BJP’s failure to resolve the crisis may hit its rural vote bank Corruption The bureaucracy is plagued by corruption The scam in Vyapam (a board which selects candidates for government posts through competitive exams) which was uncovered in 2013 exposed the bureaucratic rot A scholarship scam (also unearthed in 2013) threatened to also drag the chief minister into a Lokayukta investigation The Congress has been alleging that corruption is at its "peak" in Madhya Pradesh The Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Ajay Singh claimed that multi-crore scams surfaced during the Shivraj regime An article in DNA stated that corruption in Vyapam highlighted the deeper crisis in Madhya Pradesh’s education and medical sector As an article in The Sunday Guardian noted “a section of the bureaucrats is protecting and promoting the corrupt” The report quoted a senior journalist as saying that the issue of corruption may end up helping Congress win Educated unemployed The number of educated unemployed youth is rising As per the 2017 economic survey report at least 141 lakh youth are unemployed of which nearly 129 lakh are educated “The percentage of educated unemployed increased from 7960 percent in 2015 to 8574 percent by the end of December 2016" a senior official told The Times of India This despite the fact that there was a significant dip (10 per cent to 27 percent) in the overall unemployment numbers between 2016 and early 2017 Drought and water scarcity Drought in 2016 and 2017 may hurt BJP in rural areas Poor rain in recent years led to water scarcity According to The Times of India water crisis reached severe levels in Jabalpur Indore Ujjain and Sagar divisions in April 2017 Worse deficient rains in 31 districts during the 2017 monsoon season forced the government to declare 13 districts as drought-hit Political history Like in neighbouring Gujarat Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh BJP and the Congress dominate The BJP has been winning Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections since 2003 It also ruled the state between 1990 and 1992 with Sunderlal Patwa as chief minister Through Congress has been out of power since 2003 it has been a political force since the formation of Madhya Pradesh in 1956 Barring the period between 1967 and 1969 and the Janata Party interregnum the party enjoyed uninterrupted power Several key leaders of the Congress on the national stage began their political careers in the state These include Vidya Charan Shukla Madhavrao Scindia Arjun Singh Motilal Vora Digvijaya Singh and Kamal Nath Parties such as BSP and Samajwadi Party which are strong in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh have a marginal presence Electoral arithmetic changed considerably in 2000 when Chhattisgarh was carved from Madhya Pradesh’s tribal-dominated districts Prior to the formation of the new state Madhya Pradesh had 320 Assembly and 40 Lok Sabha seats madhya pradesh seat share Infogram Seat share madhya pradesh vote share Infogram Vote share Electoral history The year 2003 saw the first Assembly election after the state’s bifurcation That year the BJP came to power for the second time in the state’s history While the BJP won 173 seats the Congress won only 38 In the 2008 elections Congress nearly doubled its seat tally from 38 to 71 seats Nevertheless BJP won the election with a reduced majority in the Assembly In the last election BJP continued its winning run registering victories in 165 Assembly seats The 2013 election was also significant in the matter of vote share Unlike 2003 and 2008 elections when the difference in the vote share of the two parties did not exceed six percent the last election saw the BJP pull away by nearly eight percent Key players in the fray this time Shivraj Singh Chouhan The three-time chief minister and the OBC face of the BJP is likely to fight for his fourth consecutive term He is already the longest serving chief minister of the state However several reports of his imminent departure from state politics have been making the rounds after he did not attend the swearing-in ceremony of Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani Kailash Vijayvargiya A six-time MLA and former cabinet minister Vijayvargiya is currently a national general secretary of the BJP He is also reportedly a Shivraj rival and a favourite of BJP president Amit Shah He is also
