New Harry Potter Stage Play A Sequel

By Aglaia Staff

When news of the upcoming play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” first broke in June, rumors swirled and everyone started making their own guesses on the production’s plot.

But new details have emerged on the two-part play, which author J.K. Rowling developed with playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany. It is set to premiere on London’s West End in 2016.
Most notably, we now know the play will be a sequel and should be considered the series’ “eighth story,” set to take place 19 years later, contradicting early reports predicting the play would be a prequel.
The epilogue to the final book, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,’ takes place 19 years after the events of the book, and sees Harry, along with his friends Ron and Hermione, dropping their children off at the Hogwarts Express.”

We’re also now seeing the first images of the play’s official artwork, which shows a child hunched inside a nest that appears to have black wings.
Below is a brief plot decription about what we can expect from the production:

“It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”
Preview performances will officially begin on June 7 and July 30 will mark the world premiere opening night.

Don Zimmer Passes Away

By Aglaia Staff

Don Zimmer, a current Tampa Bay Rays advisor who has spent the last six decades working in professional baseball as a player and coach, died Wednesday after a nearly two-month hospital stay. He was 83.

Zimmer, who has been working with the Rays in a limited-time capacity since 2004, underwent heart surgery in April to fix a leaky valve. Initially expected to only need a couple days of recovery before going home, his body never recouped properly. Topkin reported in late April. that Zimmer needed a ventilator to breathe and his progress was “slow” to do so on his own.

A baseball lifer, Zimmer goes down as one of the most indelible faces in MLB history. Working largely as a reserve infielder, he played 12 big league seasons, starting with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1954. That call-up would start a 60-year relationship with America’s pastime, featuring stops at nearly every corner of the United States.

Zimmer played for the Dodgers, Cubs, Mets, Reds and Washington Senators. Working all over the diamond depending on need, Zimmer enjoyed limited individual success as a player. He made the 1961 All-Star Game but played in over 100 games just four times in his career. He had a career .235 batting average and hit 91 career home runs, with his playing days largely defined by his unquestioned work ethic and willingness to fill whatever role was needed.

Those traits served Zimmer well in his legendary coaching career. 

Starting first in the minor leagues, Zimmer again worked his way up through the system before earning a gig with the Montreal Expos in 1971. He would become a fixture on a major league bench over the next three-plus decades, where he’d become one of the best-traveled coaches in history. 

Zimmer coached or managed nine different franchises, including three different stints with the Yankees and two stops with the Red Sox. Not even the fiercest rivalry in baseball could keep someone as talented as him off a major league bench.

His five-year stint (1976-80) in Boston served as his greatest success as a manager. Zimmer’s teams never made the playoffs, but they were better than .500 every season and he had two campaigns with a .600 winning percentage. It’s possible he would have had a much longer managerial career had the wild card been in play then.

Zimmer’s only playoff appearance as a manager came in 1989 with the Cubs, a season in which he won the Manager of the Year award. Chicago lost to the San Francisco Giants in the NLCS. Overall, Zimmer went 885-858 as the man in charge with the Padres, Red Sox, Rangers and Cubs each giving him a shot.

 

Where Zimmer found his true calling was being the second in command.

Joe Torre tabbed him for his third and final stint in New York in 1996, and the two became one of the most successful clubhouse pairings of the modern era. Torre and Zimmer helped guide the Yankees to four World Series titles, a dynasty that helped end two decades of futility in the Bronx.

Zimmer also had his greatest moment of infamy in New York. During a bench-clearing brawl between the Yankees and Red Sox in 2003, Zimmer charged at Boston pitcher Pedro Martinez, who promptly threw him to the ground. While many criticized Martinez for his part in the fight, it was a quintessential Zimmer moment. He loved the game to the point where, even at an advanced age, he’d start a fight he had no chance to win in order to protect his players.

Torre is one of the infinite members of baseball royalty who owe gratitude to Zimmer. Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Carl Yastrzemski and many others had their lives touched by this great man.

World Of Literature Mourns Gabriel Garcia Marquez

By Aglaia Staff

The death of Nobel prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez at the age of 87 has attracted world attention and international tributes.

 

Regarded as one of the greatest writers in the Spanish-language, he was best known for his masterpiece, “One Hundred Years of Solitude”.

His books were read by everyone from presidents to youngsters and with his unique blend of magic and realism they became popular around the world.

President Obama said the world had lost “one of its greatest visionary writers” while former US President Bill Clinton called him “a man with a unique gift of imagination and emotional honesty”.

Among his other works were “Love in the Time of Cholera” and “Chronicle of a Death Foretold”.

The Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa, a one-time friend but after a punch outside a cinema they started one of literatures most talked-about feuds, said:

“A great writer had died, whose work gave great diffusion and prestige to the literature of the Spanish language. His novels will survive him and will continue to win over readers everywhere.”

Colombian by birth he was last seen in public on his birthday at his home in Mexico. He died there after several years of ill health.

Voting Begins In Four North-East States

By Aglaia Staff

The 5-week parliamentary elections entered its second phase on Wednesday with voting in four north-eastern states of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya and Nagaland.

Simultaneous polls for two Lok Sabha and 49 of the 60 assembly seats of Arunachal Pradesh began on a peaceful note on Wednesday.

 

Congress, BJP, NCP, Peoples Party of Arunachal besides independents are in the fray in the Western and Eastern parliamentary constituencies, which are traditional Congress strongholds since 1975, except in 2004 when the BJP made its dent for the first time.

Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs Ninong Ering of Congress is pitted against BJP nominee Tarir Gao and PPA’S Wangman Lowangcha in the Eastern Parliamentary seat.

In the Western seat Congress MP nominee and sitting MP Takam Sanjoy has locked horns with BJP’s Kiren Rijiju in a multi-cornered contest which has eight candidates.

In the assembly polls the main contest will be between Congress and BJP but new entrant Naga Peoples Front (NPF), along with PPA and NCP are expected to put up formidable fight in several seats.

Altogether 155 candidates including 5 women are in the fray for 49 of the 60 Assembly seats in the state.

The rest 11 seats have been won uncontested by Congress. Among the winners are Chief Minister Nabam Tuki from Sagalee constituency.

An electorate of 7,53,170, including 3,77,272 women will cast their votes in 2,158 polling stations in the state.

An additional 20 companies of central paramilitary forces besides 24 existing companies have been deployed as well as 8000 policemen to maintain law and order during the polls.

Nagaland

Polling for the lone parliamentary seat in Nagaland which will decide the fate of Chief Minister Neiphiu Rioin began on a peaceful note on Wednesday.

Mr. Rioin is pitted against Congress’ K V Pusa and Akheu Achumi of Socialist Party (India).

This will be the first time that Nagaland would webcast poll proceedings of 84 stations out of the total 2,059 stations to maintain transparency.

Those polling stations can be viewed live through the CEO Nagaland website.

An electorate of 11,82,948, including 5,82,458 women will cast their votes during the day.

Manipur

The Outer Manipur Lok Sabha seat, one of the two parliamentary constituencies in the state went to the polls on Wednesday.

A total 10 contestants from BJP, Congress, Trinamool Congress, Naga People’s Front, NCP, JD(U) and Aam Admi Party, besides three independents are in the fray.

The candidates whose fate will be decided today are sitting Congress MP Thangso Baite, Gangmumei Kamei (BJP), C Doungel (NCP), Kim Gangte (TMC), Soso Lorho (Naga People’s Front), L Gangte (JD—U) and M K Zou (AAP).

 

An electorate of 9,11,699, of whom 4,63,068 are women, will cast their votes in 511 polling booths.

Many Searches Like Malaysia Airlines

By Aglaia Staff

With each day, the hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 becomes one of the most baffling mysteries of the modern era, but history offers many great quests in which mankind searched for something or someone lost.

These are epic searches, based on legend or fact, ending successfully, tragically, or sometimes not at all:

 

The Holy Grail

There are many great biblical searches: Noah’s Ark. The Ark of the Covenant. The Garden of Eden.

But there’s nothing like the Holy Grail.

Indeed, it’s a metaphor for any monumental search.

It’s not clear what the Grail exactly was, but it’s said to be the shallow cup from Jesus Christ’s Last Supper and from his crucifixion, where the vessel took blood flowing from his side. Some believe Joseph of Arimathea brought the Grail to Britain, where it lies hidden.

Not even legendary King Arthur and his knights could find it, though their crusade inspired lore and romance.

The Titanic

RMS Titanic was a British luxury passenger ship that sank in 1912 during its maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City. The ocean liner was touted as “unsinkable” — until it met an iceberg in the North Atlantic around midnight on April 14-15, 1912.

About 1,500 of the more than 2,200 people aboard the Titanic died.

For decades, the ship was considered forever lost at the bottom of the ocean — until 1985, when scientists found the wreckage on the seabed. Its story inspired director James Cameron to make the Hollywood tragic love tale “Titanic” in 1997.

Air France 447

A long search for a commercial airliner like Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 isn’t unprecedented.

In 2009, Air France Flight 447 plunged into the South Atlantic Ocean during a storm, killing all 228 people aboard.

The precise location of the wreckage remained a mystery for almost two years. Then the plane and its dead were found in a mountain range deep on the ocean floor.

Miniature submersible vehicles retrieved the Flight 447′s voice and flight data recorders. That allowed investigators to blame the crash on a series of errors by the pilots and a failure to react effectively to technical problems.

Jimmy Hoffa

The disappearance of Teamsters leader James Riddle Hoffa remains a subject of relentless speculation and macabre jokes.

He vanished on July 30, 1975, after he stood outside the Machus Red Fox restaurant in Michigan and made a phone call. He was never heard from again.

His name makes news anytime FBI agents and police are seen holding shovels. Lore holds that Hoffa was killed and buried. But where?

Amelia Earhart

The swashbuckling aviatrix and pioneering woman embarked on the first around-the-world flight at the Equator in June 1937.

After completing about two-thirds of the flight, she and navigator Frederick Noonan disappeared after their plane took off from Lae, New Guinea. They were heading to the Pacific Ocean outpost of Howland Island — a distance equaling a transcontinental U.S. flight.

A search never found any trace of her, Noonan or their plane. Some believe they ran out of fuel and crashed into the sea — similar to one theory of what happened to the Malaysia Airlines plane.

Atlantis

In the fourth century B.C., the philosopher Plato spoke of an ancient utopia that existed 9,000 years before, a place called Atlantis.

Made of concentric islands rich with gold, silver and exotic life, Atlantis descended into depravity, Plato said, until earthquakes and tsunamis ultimately destroyed it.

Over time, thinkers and writers began trying to place Atlantis in real countries and lands, even America.

At a minimum, Atlantis lives on in the imagination, thanks to one of Western civilization’s greatest philosophers.

Seven cities of gold

It’s one thing to imagine of a paradise like Atlantis. It’s quite another to actually voyage into a strange new world in search of one.

That’s what the Spanish explorers did in the 1500s, driven by a tall tale told by natives of how the New World held seven cities of gold.

In their lust for wealth, the Spaniards traveled through modern Florida, Texas and Mexico in search of Cibola.

When they arrived in Kansas, they finally quit. They never found the seven lost cities of gold.

Tomb of Cleopatra and Mark Antony

Cleopatra, the great queen of Egypt, died in 30 B.C. and was buried with her lover, Mark Antony.

The couple’s great passion has been captured in theater and film, thanks to Shakespeare on stage and Elizabeth Taylor in film. But for some adventurers, that’s not enough.

In 2009, flamboyant archeologist Zahi Hawass of Egypt and his colleagues began a new search for Cleopatra’s tomb — “in hopes of removing some of the great mystery that hangs thick around this famous queen,” Hawass wrote in National Geographic.

“Many have searched for the tomb of Alexander the Great, but no one had searched for that missing piece of ancient Egypt’s story — the tomb of Cleopatra, who took her own life rather than surrender her homeland to the Romans,” Hawass wrote. “It occurred to me that we had before us an opportunity to recover the last page in the book of ancient Egyptian civilization, an opportunity we could not pass by.”

So far, he’s had no luck.

Then again, no one has found the tomb of Alexander the Great, either.

Bermuda Triangle

Many ships, planes and people have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle, a section of the Atlantic Ocean in a “triangle” marked by the points of Bermuda, Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Speculation runs wild on what caused the boats and aircraft to vanish.

Sound familiar? The disappearance of Flight 370 has nothing on the Bermuda Triangle.

Some even blame the triangle disasters on supernatural forces, including influences from lost Atlantis or another time-space dimension.

The U.S. government devotes a page to the Bermuda triangle and rebuts fringe theories. U.S. officials cite hurricanes, sudden storms, the powerful Gulf Stream and shallow Caribbean waters as reasonable explanations for the lost vessels.

“The U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard contend that there are no supernatural explanations for disasters at sea. Their experience suggests that the combined forces of nature and human fallibility outdo even the most incredulous science fiction,” the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says on its website.

“The ocean has always been a mysterious place to humans, and when foul weather or poor navigation is involved, it can be a very deadly place. This is true all over the world.”

By the way, no official mapping exists for triangle’s boundaries, NOAA says.

Life out there

Call them aliens. Call them extraterrestrials.

Call them what you want.

But let’s face it: Don’t we all wonder what’s out there, especially when we launch spacecraft to another planet?

Sure, astronomers study the heavens and find new planets, but what we’re privately searching for is whether we are alone.

Among the organizations advancing this pursuit is the Carl Sagan Center for Study of Life In The Universe, named after the late American astronomer who championed exploration of the cosmos.

“The significance of a finding that there are other beings who share this universe with us would be absolutely phenomenal, it would be an epochal event in human history,” Sagan once declared.

Stephen Hawking: In 50 Years We’ll Be Living On The Moon

By Aglaia Staff

 I can just imagine the ads.

One-hundred-twenty-year-old Richard Branson would like you to be one of the first to live in the Virgin Moon Residences.

There will be three Virgin Galactic (or perhaps Virgin Lunartic) flights there daily and the residences will be all-inclusive properties with the option of timeshares. They will even have their own mayor: a still-gray Newt Gingrich.

 

Is my brain suddenly marble-free? No, I’ve been reading the latest predictions from Stephen Hawking.

As the Daily Mail reports, the famed physicist was speaking Sunday night on UK TV in a program called “Live From Space”. His predictions were optimistic, in a pessimistic sort of way.

He said: “Our planet is an old world, threatened with an ever-expanding population and finite resources. We must anticipate these threats and have a plan B.”

Plan B is really Plan M. He said: “Within 50 years, I have no doubt there will be settlements on the moon.”

This view rather echoes that of Newt Gingrich.

When trying to show he was far more progressive than Mitt Romney during the 2012 Republican nomination contest, Gingrich suggested there would be a moon colony during the second term of his presidency.

Some might think this was looking at progress through rose-tinted Google Glass.

I can’t imagine life on the moon being all that much fun. Indeed, Sandra Bullock didn’t seem to have too much entertainment merely floating in space.

If living on the moon will be our only option because, as Hawking suggested, the Earth doesn’t have the resources for so many humans, the life of the future doesn’t seem too attractive.

Moreover, it’s still unresolved whether other beings might be living on the moon or wishing us ill. It was Hawking himself who warned not too long ago that aliens might hate us and feel ill-disposed toward our dissolute ways.

Technology surely has to make rapid advances for humanity to adjust to any new world. Still, Hawking believes that this century will be “the true Space Age.”

What might this entail? Hawking said: “By the end of the century, I truly hope humans will be living on Mars.”

I truly hope humans have the best of luck with that.

Indian-Origin Engineers Create Device For Wireless Technology

By Aglaia Staff

Using an inexpensive Rs 3,600 inkjet printer, two Indian-origin electrical engineers at the University of Utah have for the first time produced microscopic structures that use light in metals to carry information.

 

This new technique, which controls electrical conductivity within such micro-structures, could be used to rapidly fabricate superfast components in electronic devices — making wireless technology faster for printing magnetic materials.

 

A recently discovered technology called plasmonics marries the best aspects of optical and electronic data transfer. By crowding light into metal structures with dimensions far smaller than its wavelength, data can be transmitted at much higher frequencies such as terahertz frequencies.

 

“Very little well developed technology exists to create terahertz plasmonic devices, which have the potential to make wireless devices such as Bluetooth — which operates at 2.4 gigahertz frequency — 1,000 times faster than they are today,” explained Ajay Nahata, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and senior author.

 

Using a commercially available inkjet printer and two different colour cartridges filled with silver and carbon ink, Nahata and his colleague Barun Gupta printed 10 different plasmonic structures with a periodic array of 2,500 holes with different sizes and spacing on a 2.5-inch-by-2.5 inch plastic sheet.

 

“Because we can draw and print these structures exactly as we want them, our technique lets you make rapid changes to the plasmonic properties of the metal, without the million dollar instrumentation typically used to fabricate these structures,” Nahata added.

 

Depending on the relative amounts of silver and carbon ink used, the researchers could control the plasmonic array’s electrical conductivity or how efficient it was in carrying an electrical current.

 

Plasmonic arrays are currently made using micro-fabrication techniques that require expensive equipment and manufacture only one array at a time. Until now, controlling conductivity in these arrays has proven extremely difficult for researchers.

 

Nahata and Gupta used terahertz imaging to measure the effect of printed plasmonic arrays on a beam of light. When light with terahertz frequency is directed at a periodic array of holes in a metal layer, it can result in resonance — a fundamental property best illustrated by a champagne flute shattering when it encounters a musical tone of the right pitch.

 

According to Nahata, with this new printing technique, “We have an extra level of control over both the transmission of light and electrical conductivity in these devices”. You can now design structures with as many different variations as the printer can produce, he added in a study that appeared in the journal Advanced Optical Materials

 

These faster plasmonic arrays could prove useful for wireless devices and printing magnetic materials for greater functionality in different devices.

Xbox One Price Cut In The U.K.

By Aglaia Staff

From Friday February 28 the Xbox One will be reduced from £429 on its own to £399 with a copy of eagerly anticipated first person shooter Titanfall.

The console was previously £70 times more expensive than the PS4, which has an RRP of £349.

Since the PS4 and Xbox One were launched in Europe and America last November Sony‘s console has strongly outperformed its Microsoft rival.

The PS4 has shifted 5.3 million units worldwide compared to 3.9m Xbox One consoles sold across the globe.

Harvey Eagle, marketing director at Microsoft Xbox UK, said: “This is about giving UK gamers the best value that we can. 

“We’ve already seen that Xbox and PlayStation will both be commercially successful devices. We see this as a marathon, not a sprint.”

The price cut will only apply to the UK. In America the Xbox One is on sale for $499 (£300). 

Britain is the second-biggest market for the Xbox One after the US.

Seth Barton, editor of Expert Reviews, said the price cut was a “canny move” by the company co-founded by Bill Gates.

He said: “By knocking £30 off and adding a game into the bundle, Microsoft have destroyed the price differential with Sony, without having to drop their RRP. 

“They can now sit back and wait to see how well it does, and if it does very well, they can add another game into the deal.”

Titanfall has been developed exclusively for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PCs by one of the makers of the best-selling Call of Duty franchise. 

Mr Barton added: “I don’t think it’s in either company’s interest to launch a price war at this point in time. 

“According to Chart-Track, the Xbox One was selling 1.5 less consoles than the PS4 in the first three months since launching. 

“So they were obviously on the back foot and the price was hurting them.”"The only problem is that it is likely to annoy lots of people who have already bought an Xbox One, and a lot of them did so because they wanted Titanfall.

“It is the most anticipated game in all existence right now.”

The PS4 has outsold the Xbox One despite having more demand than supply.

The console have been like gold dust with many shops quickly selling out of PS4 units.

Last week PlayStation UK Managing Director Fergal Gara has said those looking to buy a PS4 should not expect to find one easily available until April.

Speaking to MCV, Mr Gara said: “I can’t work it out precisely. But based on what I’ve seen so far, I think it is going to be tricky until around about April.

“You might get a fortnight or a week here or there where it is more available, but we should be back to free supply by about April.

“That’s our best guess. It might be a little earlier than that, or it might be a little later. But we’ll get there.”

Bengaluru Gets India’s First Electric Bus; Other Cities To Follow

By Aglaia Staff

The passenger bus, with zero emission level, was inaugurated by Karnataka Transport Minister R Ramalinga Reddy as an initiative of the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation. The air-conditioned bus can seat 31 passengers and a fully charged battery (5 hours) covers a distance of around 250 km.

“The bus will run on free trial basis for the first three months, following which the BMTC will decide on its purchase. The passenger fare will be equivalent to the Volvo bus fare,” Ramalinga Reddy told The Hindu. At a cost of around Rs 2.7 crore, the bus will operate from Majestic to Kadugodi (Route No 335E) and may be used on the airport access road as well. While the cost of the bus is high, if it proves to be efficient in the city, Reddy said the government could look at increasing the number of buses in a phased manner.

“We will consider various options if the bus is found to be suitable for the city. At present, it is on a three-month trial and following this, a decision will be taken on whether or not to purchase the bus,” Reddy told the New Indian Express. While switching entirely to e-buses could be a long term measure, the Karnataka government has indicated that it is looking at cutting pollution caused by public transportation.

In his budget speech last week, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had indicated that the government will soon introduce buses running on eco-friendly fuel such as CNG. “The distribution work of natural gas is in the final stage with the joint venture of KSIIDC and GAIL. It will be completed at the earliest and action will be taken on priority basis to supply CNG in Bangalore.

Action will be taken to introduce and adopt eco-friendly CNG in urban transport vehicles in a phased manner,” he had announced. A report by the Centre for Science and Environment released in 2013 identified Bangalore as one among 14 cities that have high levels of particulate matter. A World Bank study has indicated that using CNG over diesel would reduce carbon monoxide by about 83 percent, nitrogen oxide by 58 percent, and a 97 per cent drop in particulate matter, the Bangalore Mirror reported. Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation currently has 6,472 buses operating on 2,398 routes with 4.9 million passengers using its services daily.
