First look at Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S Now playing: Watch this: 3:16 Gaming Culture Post a comment The new horror game is based on a smoking statistic. Valery Sharifulin/Getty Images The Food and Drug Administration is changing how it’s tackling tobacco use among teenagers. One Leaves is a free horror game for Xbox and PC designed to educate teens about smoking dangers.Part of the FDA’s The Real Cost antismoking campaign, the game targets the 12-17 age range, the group most likely to experiment with cigarettes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The game’s premise is based on the statistic that three out of every four teens who smoke in high school will continue into adulthood despite trying to quit. You wake up in a cage with three other people. An ominous voice tells you the rules: The four of you must try to escape, but only one of you will. The rest will be trapped inside forever. You can run, but only in short bursts because you have poor lung capacity.”This game is part high school, part hospital and part hell,” Gary Resch of marketing agency FCB New York said in a release Wednesday. FCB helped create the game and the Real Cost campaign. If you’re not the first to make it out, the voice gives you the bad news. “You’re trapped. Game over. Just like three out of four teens who think they’ll escape smoking — but don’t know the real cost of cigarettes,” it says. Another catch? The maze changes each time you play the game. So if there’s a way to win, it’s going to be a challenge. Popular esports gamer and Fortnite star Ninja tweeted a playthrough of the game on Tuesday. He said the game’s message was important to him because his grandfather was a heavy smoker. Share your voice Watch my playthrough of a NEW game called One Leaves! I swear it wasn’t scary at all… 😶 https://t.co/L97U4MVNOS @KnowTheRealCost #OneLeavesGame #ad— Ninja (@Ninja) March 19, 2019 The game has been available since February. Plans are in the works to make One Leaves a real-life escape room experience at this year’s Winter X Games. 0 Tags
Talking about Arhaan, the 16-year-old had been spending time with both partners of his separated parents. And he seems to have come to terms with the present situation. But social media users feel terrible to see Arhaan managing his time for both of his parents and their respective lovers.Earlier Malaika had said that her son has become far more accepting about her and Arbaaz’s failed marriage and being in love with Arjun Kapoor. She had recalled that her son had said to her a few months after the divorce, “Mom, you look happy.”Both Malaika and Arbaaz are in no hurry to get married and want to enjoy the current phase in their lives. Arbaaz Khan with son Arhaan Khan and girlfriend Giorgia AndrianiInstagramEstranged couple Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan have once again found love in their respective lives post their divorce after 18 years of marriage. While Malaika recently declared her love to Arjun Kapoor, Arbaaz has been dating Italian model Giorgia Andriani for a while now. And as Malaika and Arjun have returned to Mumbai from their New York vacation, Arbaaz and Giorgia were spotted during their lunch outing with Arbaaz and Malaika’s 16-year-old son Arhaan Khan.However, a strange thing happened after Arbaaz, son Arhaan and girlfriend Giorgia stepped out of a restaurant in Bandra on Sunday (July 7) afternoon. Both Arbaaz and Giorgia went separate ways as soon as the shutterbugs started clicking their pictures.Giorgia walked the other way while Arbaaz and Arhaan headed towards to their car. Arbaaz even turned around looking for Giorgia and shouted her name before sitting in the car with Arhaan. But Giorgia continued to walk onward.Going by Arbaaz’s baffled reaction, it looked as if the trio was supposed to leave together in the same car but Giorgia’s walk out has now created a slight confusion. Maybe Giorgia didn’t want to get papped with her boyfriend and his son together or there could be some other reason for her walk out which only the Italian beauty can tell.Take a look.

Pu Ying Huang for The Texas TribuneFloodwaters threaten the Grand Vista neighborhood in Richmond on Aug. 28, 2017. Residents were forced to evacuate due rising water from the Brazos River.It’s hard to find anyone who can remember the last time all 36 Texans in the U.S. House came together for a delegation-wide meeting.But that’s just how cataclysmic of an event Hurricane Harvey was to the entire state: U.S. Reps. Joe Barton, R-Ennis, and Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, are gathering all of the Congressional Texans together later this week to sort out how the delegation can best use its size and influence to advocate for the devastated Houston, Beaumont and Corpus Christi regions. “This is not a normal time,” U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas, told reporters Tuesday when asked to forecast how the Congress will tackle a whole host of fiscal issues this month, including how to address flood insurance in Houston. The U.S. House is set to cast the first votes for an initial round of Hurricane Harvey relief funding Wednesday. But Congress is also facing a Sept. 30 deadline to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Plan, which is the arm of the government that settles the claims of flood insurance policyholders. The program was, as U.S. Rep. Gene Green put it, “way over-committed,” even before Harvey. But given the damage of that storm and concerns about a new one, Hurricane Irma, that appeared Tuesday to be headed toward the Florida coast, Congress is all but certain to commit more funds to the program. But how much? That’s the question facing the limited-government Republicans who dominate the delegation, and Congress, for that matter. Delegation sources tell the Tribune they are confident they have the legislative muscle to secure some renewed funding. But the scale of the damage is still an unknown and many of these fiscal conservatives are already becoming anxious over the size of the estimates.For some in the delegation, the goal is to avoid taking any hard stances as negotiations continue in the coming days and weeks.Also, flood insurance will not help everyone affected by the storm. Only 17 percent of homes in the hardest hit areas in the state had flood insurance, according to a Washington Post analysis. For those who do have coverage, a homeowner can expect up to $250,000 to cover damage to the structural house, and $100,000 for belongings inside the home. The funding problems escalate as members of Congress ponder how – or even whether – to help homeowners who did not have flood insurance.Green, a Houston Democrat and a flood insurance policyholder himself, has seen several hurricanes blow through Houston in his 25 years in the U.S. House.“What happens if you don’t have flood insurance, [the Federal Emergency Management Agency] gives you a certain amount,” he said, often in the form of a Small Business Administration loan far less generous than the payments received by those with flood insurance. Several members concurred that funds could be diverted from the Small Business Administration into loans. But the concept of backing every damaged home is daunting. And not everyone is a fan of the National Flood Insurance Program. The program was created decades ago, when the business model for flood insurance was unsustainable in the private market. To critics, it is a government-funded moral hazard that encourages citizens to build homes in places where they should not exist because of the costs and likelihood of flooding. One of the chief critics of the program is a Texan, U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Dallas. From his perch as the House Financial Services Committee chairman, he is an advocate for radical changes to the program including ones designed to encourage more private insurers into the market.Still, as Texans returned to Congress Tuesday night, greeted by colleagues from other parts of the country with hugs and sympathy, a measure to extend the flood insurance program past its looming deadline seems likely to pass in some form.For Green, though, this is a no brainer.“It’s not a tough vote for me because of where I come from,” said Green.

The nonprofit Southwest Key signed a lease for a facility in Houston earlier this month, which will reportedly be used to care for hundreds of immigrant children. The shelter will be located on Emancipation Avenue, in a building that has been previously used to house displaced families after Hurricane Harvey, as well as homeless families. 00:00 /00:59 X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share After Jeff Sessions enacted a zero-tolerance policy, which separates immigrant parents from their children, the Office of Refugee Resettlement has taken some 2,000 immigrant children into their custody after they were separated from their “alleged legal guardians”, straining facilities that care for unaccompanied immigrant minors. Juan Sanchez, Founder and President of Southwest Key Programs, says about ’10 percent’ of the children they are holding for the federal government have been separated from their parents under the Trump Administration’s new so-called “zero tolerance” policy.“We are at a maximum right now, pretty close it. We got about 230 additional beds. But we are making room for some additional beds. When we get to 6,000 we will be maxed out. And there is discussions now of where are these kids going to go,” said Sanchez.Anne Chandler, Executive Director of the Tahirih Justice Center, offers legal support for immigrant women and girls in Houston. “There are children who are coming here with their fathers and their mothers asking for safety and protection and to see these children some who are young as 18 months being taken away forcefully from their parents and put in facilities like this one behind us here at Emancipation Avenue is absolutely wrong,” said Chandler. She also said the zero tolerance policy also makes it harder for families to access legal counsel and win their case for asylum. “Once we take away the child and we put them in a facility like this one that’s about to open on Emancipation Avenue, we’re also doing that so we can keep the mother and father detained in a rural detention center for throughout the legal process,” said Chandler, who also urged that the public distinguish between the nonprofit organizations that run immigrant children’s shelters and provide critical care, like Southwest Key, and the Department of Justice, which enacted the zero tolerance policy. Southwest Key runs 26 immigrant children’s shelters in Texas, Arizona and California, according to their website.For Houstonians who want to support immigrant children being cared for in Southwest Key facilities, their spokesperson Lizzie Chen said, “One way for the citizens of Houston to help is to focus on the children. They can send letters or cards with messages of hope to Southwest Key and we will deliver them to the children.” Messages can be mailed to Southwest Key Programs, 6002 Jain Lane, Austin, TX 78721. “We also encourage concerned citizens to reach out to their elected officials to make their concerns heard,” Chen said. Local politicians, including Mayor Turner and have spoken out against the move to open a children’s shelter in Houston. “The people of Houston cannot stand by and do nothing while a baby jail is opened here. We must come together to demand this cruel policy is stopped. It is a policy enacted by the Trump administration without a legal mandate,” said Senator Sylvia Garcia. Listen
Popular on Variety At the end of October 2018, Bennett executed Netflix stock trades that netted him $3.36 million, according to SEC filings.Netflix has commenced a search for a new CMO. Bennett said he will remain with the company for an interim transition period and is committed to staying at Netflix through the end of the year if necessary.“Kelly Bennett has been absolutely transformational for us as we expanded our member base in the U.S. and globally, and particularly as we transitioned into being a leader in original series and films,” Hastings said in a statement. “He has been a source of inspiration both inside Netflix and in presenting our brand to the world, and we are thankful for his enormous contributions.”During Bennett’s tenure at Netflix, the company grew from 25.7 million paid streaming members in the third quarter of 2012 to 139 million worldwide at the end of 2018. In recent years, Netflix has dramatically cranked up marketing spending: Marketing costs grew 65% in 2018, to $2.37 billion, and analysts expect that to grow this year by 22%, to nearly $2.9 billion.“When I joined in 2012, we were mostly a tech company,” Bennett said. “Today, we’re a global entertainment programmer at significant scale.”Bennett’s pending exit comes after another recent C-suite shuffle at Netflix. David Wells, a 14-year veteran of the company, said last summer he would step down as CFO. In January, Netflix named Spencer Neumann, formerly CFO of Activision Blizzard, as its new chief financial officer.Meanwhile, Netflix said Wednesday that Erik Barmack, Netflix’s VP of international originals for Latin America, EMEA and India, is leaving the company after eight years to start his own production company. Netflix named Bela Bajaria, previously Netflix’s VP of content acquisition, to head international non-English TV originals.Bennett started at Netflix as CMO in August 2012 after nine years at Warner Bros., where he most recently was VP of interactive, worldwide marketing, where he led international digital campaigns for the studio’s movies. Before that, Bennett ran digital marketing for Warner Bros. Pictures in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and worked in promotion and business development at the company. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The Canada native holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia. Kelly Bennett is leaving as Netflix’s chief marketing officer after more than six years leading the streaming giant’s branding and advertising teams during a period of massive growth.Bennett, 46, said in an interview that it’s the “ideal time for me to leave.” He said the decision was his personal choice and that CEO Reed Hastings hadn’t asked him to depart. “Given the success we’re at today — the way we’re performing as a team — it’s the right legacy for me to leave while we’re at our very best,” he told Variety.After he leaves Netflix, Bennett expects to be semi-retired. “I likely will never work full-time again. That’s not something I’m particularly interested in,” Bennett said. “I’m definitely going to spend some more time with my family,” noting he has three children (ages 11, 14 and 17). He added that he’ll look to pursue roles in the non-profit sector or teaching, and possibly serve on some boards.
So what does this show explore? Well, the answer is a list of questions. What is devotion? Is it a mere a tool? Or a religious observation or worship? Or an instant mantra to quell one’s innermost disquiet? Or is it all a grand delusion and religious posturing? These are some of the ideas that this show explores through the works on display. Bajaj noted, ‘The art works in the show portray multidimensional elucidations of devotion and the way it transmutes individual entities. There are works that conjure up peace and spiritualism while others that invoke disquiet and action.’ Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The show opens today with the performances by Sweta Bhattad and leading puppeteer of India Dadi Pudumjee.This exhibition brings in an interesting exercise to examine the modern intellectual’s notion about devotion. The show has been in the making for the past one year and eminent group of artists contributed to make it so beautiful and absorbing.Curator Puri explains, ‘Great literature, art and cinema have always flourished in times of turmoil and strife. If censorship has imposed laws to stop the common man from protesting, art has provided the perfect platform for him/her to express angst through art.’ Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe art works by this fairly large and varied collection of artistes, depicts devotion the most basic and profound human emotion since the inception of the civilization, in multidimensional forms and renditions reflective of each individual entity and his/her leanings or preoccupations.The concept for this annual show on this open platform is reflective of the gallery’s own ethos and support to a diverse representation of art where the only limitation is the ideas that the artiste is able to dream up and the degree of their dedication and commitment to realise it.When: On till 15 January 2015 Where: Gallery Art Positive, Lado Sarai Timing: 10.30am – 7.30pm

Modern Times Group is expected to take market share in the free-to-air broadcasting business in Scandinavia and grow it subscription pay TV services in the region, according to analysts. Investment bank Morgan Stanley has noted that the broadcast group is a strong medium-term investment option and is one of the most well positioned broadcasters in Europe. The bank expects the company to increase its free-to-air share in Sweden by 1% this year. “As the FTA commercial challenger across the Scandinavian region, MTG still has room to grow at the expense of the incumbents. MTG has taken audience and market share in Sweden and Denmark in 2011 and we expect this performance to be reflected in its share of the TV advertising market in 2012,” it noted. Morgan Stanley also noted that its pay TV services would grow. “In pay TV the investments in new TV channels and sports rights over recent years should allow MTG to grow subscribers numbers, particularly on non-DTH platforms and gradually increase operating margins to 20% in this division.”
