[แก้ไข] Seattle library offering Netflix
<html>A free, Netflix-like streaming media service is launching this week at the Seattle Public Library after months of testing. Called Hoopla, it s a boon for cheapskate media lovers who aren t too choosy about their video choices.
The service provides free,?online access to a catalog of about 10,000 videos and more than 250,000 music albums. They re?accessible through a browser or an app for?smartphones and tablets. After signing up for a Hoopla account via users enter their library account information and then browse and checkout material directly from Hoopla. Borrowed movies and TV shows are available for three days and music is available for seven days. There s an unlimited number of copies, so patrons won t have to wait for a particular title. Hoopla streams content instantly. But?unlike Netflix and Hulu, it can also download?movies and music to phones and tablets, so they can be?consumed offline. Families heading out on a road trip can download videos to a tablet so the kids can watch them in a car or on an airplane.
Streaming works on a PC or other devices with a browser or through the Hoopla app. But?the downloading feature? works only?with Apple and Android devices, specifically devices with Apple s iOS 6 and Android 4.0. Hoopla s next priority is getting its app to run on connected TVs. It s now testing a version for Apple TV that should be ready in a few months, according to Jeff Jankowski, founder of the Holland, Ohio-based?company. Hoopla is?part of Midwest Tape, a?distribution company that provides DVDs, CDs and other physical media to libraries. The Seattle library has been talking to Midwest for several years about options for digital distribution and it began testing Hoopla in February, according to Kirk Blankenship, electronic resources librarian.
It s been a successful experience for us; we haven t had anything that quite works on this level, he said. Most of our users have experience with commercial services and have a certain standard they expect to see and I think Hoopla does that in a library setting.
I found Hoopla simple to set up and use on an iPad, where I borrowed a few videos and an album. On a fast wireless connection the streaming video quality was reasonably high-definition. Downloading was slow,[Official http://www.nfljerseysfor2013.com/nfl-jerseys-c-598], though; it took about 15 minutes to download an hour-long TV show. Parents should also beware that many of the popular?titles appearing at the top of Hoopla s catalog are not family friendly. Jankowski said the company is working on a filtering system tied to movie ratings, so juvenile library users won t see material for older audiences. The music catalog includes lots of newer releases. Movies and TV shows are a different story.
If you have?rooted around?the?third-tier offerings on Netflix looking for something, anything, decent to watch, the Hoopla catalog will seem familiar.?Newer titles in particular overlap with Netflix. Jankowski said?about 80 percent of Hoopla s catalog is not available on Netflix, and includes niches such as?educational videos on SAT preparation and preschool math and grammar videos. He said the video library is about to increase by 50 percent, with 5,NASCAR suspends use of aerial camera systems 0,000 more titles that are coming soon. Hoopla is also cheaper than paying $8 per month for Netflix. But library patrons will pay indirectly, through costs incurred by the libraries. Rentals made with Hoopla cost libraries an average of $1.70 apiece.?Users are limited to 20 rentals per month, but that could still end up costing the library more than providing them with a Netflix subscription. Seattle has budgeted about $1,000 per month for Hoopla services. If usage surges, the library may take steps to limit usage, Blankenship said. He said demand may be kept in check by the material available on Hoopla. Because it s a limited selection and doesn t include new releases, it s unlikely to see the same demand as DVDs,[New http://www.nfljerseysfor2013.com/], which at some branches account for up to 50 percent of the circulation, he said. Hoopla is starting with about 10 library systems nationally but expects to reach 100 by the end of the year. In addition to Seattle, the initial batch includes libraries in Los Angeles, Orange County and?Salt Lake County.</html>

GREENE COUNTY One of the biggest names in stockcar racing will be in action when the ARCA truck series makes its annual stop at Kil-Kare Speedway Friday. Bobby Dale Earnhardt has filed an entry to race in the 100 lap event.
There is a reputation that precedes the name Earnhardt in the world of NASCAR. The reputation is one of grit, determination, and a fierce desire to finish first. Fortunately for NASCAR fans, the Earnhardt name will continue to be a fixture on the racetrack for many years to come through the new Earnhardt blood pursuing a racing career.
Bobby Dale Earnhardt, the first grandson of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and son of Kerry Earnhardt, is out to prove that he too deserves a chance to lineup on race day, side-by-side with today s best drivers.
He is starting his racing career the same as his grandfather,[Nike http://www.nfljerseysfor2013.com/nfl-jerseys-new-york-giants-c-598_657], Dale Earnhardt, Sr. Bobby Dale intends to earn his way onto the starting field of the biggest stages in motorsports with determination and hard work.
Bobby Dale wants to build his racing career on the merit of his talent and not because of the name on his driver s license. Today the Earnhardt name lives on in NASCAR through Dale Earnhardt, Jr., but Bobby Dale Earnhardt is next in line to continue the family tradition.
Last year was the first of his three-year plan. His aim is to gain driving experience, earn respect, and create the opportunity to drive NASCAR.
His grassroots effort is something in which he has pride. I m working to raise the money on my own and start in the development series like everyone else, I m no different than anyone else, he said.
Bobby Dale Earnhardt recently moved from his hometown of Rockingham, North Carolina, to Charleston, West Virginia,[Official http://www.nfljerseysfor2013.com/nfl-jerseys-c-598],Stites pulls out tug, to pursue ARCA TRUCK racing because he believes the short track high action will sharpen his driving skills for his ascent to the big stage. There he has been cultivating sponsorships and laying the groundwork to achieve his goal of building a NASCAR race team.
Now that the 2013 ARCA Truck Series is here he intends to add his own chapter to the Earnhardt legacy one race at a time until he earns a hefty branch on the Earnhardt family tree. He is currently 7th in points, coming off a strong finish at Winchester Speedway last week.
The NASCAR Whelen All-American Racing series weekly Kil-Kare racers will also be in action. The late models, modifieds, street stocks and compacts will join the ARCA trucks.</body></html>
[แก้ไข] Doug Marrone frustrated by Buffalo Bills' penalties
<html>After being flagged nine times in their preseason opener, penalties became an even bigger problem for the in last Friday's win over the .
Called for 14 accepted penalties in that game, the Bills have been penalized 23 times through two preseason games, the most of any NFL team.
Penalties through First Two Preseason Games Team Penalties Yards 1. BUF 23 180 2. SEA 20 172 3. DAL* 19 147 3. JAC 19 143 5. WAS 18 161 6. BAL 16 190 6.

Source: nflgsis.comWhile it's not a distinction the Bills want, head coach Doug Marrone stressed Monday that all penalties aren't created equally. In some cases, flags thrown for over-aggressive play can be tolerated, he said.
"I think people tend to look at the number at the end of the game. I tend to cut them all out and evaluate them all," Marrone said. "Was this forced by us just being aggressive? Is it a penalty forced on us not being focused? I think you have to manage those as a coach because you can overmanage a situation and lose that aggressiveness in a player."
Several of the Bills' penalties through two games fall into that category. First-year defensive backs (offside, defensive pass interference), (holding, twice), and (illegal block above the waist, twice) have all been flagged multiple times this preseason, and their infractions can be attributed to their inexperience.
But some flags, like a holding penalty by guard in the red zone, have come at critical times.
"When we work on those drills and we work on those situations we have to constantly remind ourselves of that and really up our focus because we don t want any penalties down there [in the red zone], and they hurt," Marrone said.
Regardless of the situation, some other penalties have been inexcusable: Second-year cornerback was called for taunting in the preseason opener, while fourth-year receiver was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct against the Vikings.
"I get very upset; the players know I get very upset,[Nike http://www.nfljerseysfor2013.com/nfl-jerseys-new-york-giants-c-598_657], with more of the unforced errors," Marrone said. "Meaning that, not trying to make a play through a ball, but jumping offside and things like that. Those are things you can truly control and I think that s where I would use the word frustration."

[แก้ไข] Karzai stresses need for Pakistani help in Taliban peace pro
<html>But Afghanistan has long accused Pakistan of playing a double game in the 12-year-old war, saying its neighbor, facing a Taliban insurgency of its own, makes pronouncements about peace, but allows elements of its military to play a spoiling role.
Pakistan is keen to limit the influence of its old rival, India, in Afghanistan.
Karzai, who has close ties with India,Skyscrapers of Victoria Harbour, said he had "primarily and with emphasis" asked the Pakistanis to help with reconciliation as most foreign troops prepare to leave Afghanistan by the end of next year.
He wants Pakistan to help arrange contacts between the Taliban and the Afghan High Peace Council, the government body tasked with reconciliation, or release high-ranking Taliban prisoners who might act as interlocutors.
Sharif, who appeared with Karzai to deliver statements after their talks in the Pakistani capital, did not specifically address those requests.
It is unclear whether the Afghan Taliban, in power from 1996 and 2001, will have a role in the next government.
The Taliban, fighting to expel foreign forces and impose Islamist rule, have refused to talk to Karzai, accusing him of being an American puppet.
"For the two countries,New 2013 NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Offer Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys, the primary concern is lack of security for their citizens and the continued menace of terrorism," said Karzai. "It is this area that needs to have primary and focused attention from both governments."
"STRONG, SINCERE SUPPORT"
Sharif assured him of support and closed his address by listing economic deals the two countries had struck.
"Pakistan (has) strong and sincere support for peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan. We fully agreed that this process has to be inclusive, Afghan-owned and Afghan-led," Sharif said.
The Taliban in June set up an office in Doha, touted as a conduit for peace talks with the United States, but the office infuriated Karzai the day it opened by displaying a flag bearing symbols from the time the Taliban ruled Afghanistan.
Karzai accused the Taliban of running an embassy rather than an office. The office has now closed.
Karzai has made 19 trips to Pakistan but this was his first meeting with Sharif since Sharif's landslide election win in May.
An Afghan-based analyst said people there might be disappointed that Karzai and Sharif had not show more solidarity on the question of the Taliban insurgency.
"The two leaders were not on the same page," said Barhan Osman of the Afghanistan Analysts Network think-tank.
"One was talking about the peace process as the top issue and one was talking about trade as the top issue ... it was not what the Afghans were looking for."
Even if Sharif wanted to persuade the Taliban to talk to Karzai, it was unclear how much influence he had, Osman said.
Security and foreign policy in Pakistan is overseen by the military. Ever since Muslim Pakistan was carved out of British-ruled India in 1947,Official Nike NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Wholesale NFL Jerseys At Cheap Price, the military has seen India as Pakistan's greatest threat.

Getting finances in order, launching a job search, establishing a new routine all take some time, thought and effort. Often,Official Nike NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Wholesale NFL Jerseys At Cheap Price, people find themselves wondering where to start.

It’s easy to fall into panic mode. Sometimes a job loss is a relief, but many times, it’s a shock.? In either case, take the time you need to absorb the loss. Going through a degree of sadness is part of the healing process.
Avoid building stress by analyzing how much you need to do to land a job; just focus on one step at a time, particularly in the first few days or weeks.? For example:
? Make big decisions, such as cashing in your 401(k).
? Speak ill of your previous employer.
? Spend all your severance pay at once.
? Call everyone you know and ask for a job.
? Hide from your friends out of embarrassment.
? Jump at the first job offer without consideration.
? Discuss major decisions with family or friends.
? Take the time you need to move through your job loss.
? Practice what you want to tell others about your job loss.
,New 2013 NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Offer Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys? Take the high road when describing your experience with your former employer. Focus on the skills you acquired,As governors change, construction costs rise.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Jeff Tuel, Buffalo Bills quarterback
On the possibility of starting in the season opener:
“Just explains that you can never expect, you can never know what’s going to happen in this league, you’ve always got to be ready. That’s why I’ve said since the day I walked in this building that I’m going to prepare myself because you never know what could happen. Even going back in college, I had my redshirt burned freshman year, the first time I played was in the Coliseum against USC in 2009, so it’s happened to me before. I came here and started just preparing like I was a starter since day one. It can happen.”

[แก้ไข] Review- Helium Music Manager 9 jazzes up music management
<html>You don't have to be a hard-core audiophile to appreciate Helium Music Manager,Official Nike NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Wholesale NFL Jerseys At Cheap Price, but music fans with will get the most out of this application. This music organizer and player that helps you stay on top of extensive collections of files. It features an attractive design, but sometimes it's just a bit harder to use than it should be. Helium Music Manager features a wizard that makes it easy to add music files. I like how easy Helium Music Manager makes getting started: Launch the application, and it displays a wizard that lets you select which files you'd like to add to its music library. The process is quick, though adding thousands of files obviously takes a bit of time. Once your files are available through Helium, you can see its organizational features at work. Chief among them is Helium's tag editor, which lets you work with individual files or batches, to speed things along. Casual users may be overwhelmed with how many options there are for tagging audio files, but music aficionados will appreciate the choices. The application lets you monitor its progress as it adds music files. Unfortunately, many of Helium's other management features are not available in the free version. You have to upgrade to either the $29 Premium or $49 Network (up to 5 users) versions to take advantage of the features that allow you to analyze and repair MP3 and FLAC files, and locate and manage duplicate files. Rival MediaMonkey offers this kind of de-duping feature in its free version. Helium makes syncing with mobile devices more complicated than it should be. Helium proved more difficult to sync with mobile devices than MediaMonkey. That application synced easily with both an iPhone and an Android phone. Helium, meanwhile, made the process disappointingly cumbersome, requiring that I choose a folder on the phone into which I'd like to transfer the music—and it didn't let me specify exactly which music to tranfer. A more automated, streamlined syncing process would go a long way toward increasing Helium's appeal. Helium Music Manager Premium does offer additional features that make it worth the upgrade for heavy users, including the Music Browser,New 2013 NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Offer Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys,BAA expands field for 2014 Boston Marathon, which allows you to browse through your music collection in different ways. It displays lists of recently played files, top artists of the week, and tag clouds that let you see visual representations of artists and genres. It's a neat way to find new music that might otherwise be buried in your collection. Helium's design is attractive and modern. I like Helium Music Manager 9's design. Its slick black and fuschia look is appealing and modern. But I do wish the application itself were easier to use and that more of its features were available in the free version.</html>

[แก้ไข] TheWrap's Inaugural Innovators List- 12 Who Are Changin
<html>By Lucas Shaw, Brent Lang & Jeff Sneider
Hollywood is changing, and not a moment too soon. With traditional entertainment platforms in upheaval and digital models facing down old-style distribution, went on the hunt for the people who are creating new business models, challenging the status quo and digging new paths for content creators.
So here they are, in our first annual list of Innovators Who Are Changing Hollywood.
These 12 come from all walks of the entertainment industry -- from production, screenwriting, marketing, social media, finance, YouTube, agenting and talent in front of and behind the screen. Beyond this innovative dozen, there were some fascinating risers who we couldn t resist naming as honorable mentions.
Have a look, have a read, and let us know what you think.
Innovators are listed in alphabetical order.
1. JASON BLUM
Founder, Blumhouse Productions
With each new micro-budget hit, Jason Blum is upending the way movies are made, emphasizing thrift in exchange for artistic freedom and greater profits.
He first caught Hollywood s attention in 2009 with Paranormal Activity,Interviewing Kansas City Chiefs' Tight End Demetrius Harris, which cost a mere $15,000 to produce and made an astounding $193.3 million globally. Then he proved that wasn t an anomaly with films like Insidious and this summer s The Purge, which earned back their bargain-basement budgets tenfold thanks to fresh spins on familiar bogeymen like ghosts or home invaders.
We can take risks that we wouldn t be allowed if these were traditional studio films, Blum told TheWrap, noting that actors, directors and producers on his films work for scale in return for getting a bigger cut of a picture s back-end.
His reward is a first-look distribution deal at Universal -- but he has no plans to mess with his formula for the sake of nicer craft services or a bigger trailer
Asked what he would do if offered $100 million to make any film he wanted, he replied, I d use it to make 35 movies. - Brent Lang
2. ZACH BRAFF
Actor/Writer/Director, Kickstarter Fundraiser
You remember Zach Braff. The goofy doctor-ish guy from Scrubs, and the writer-director and star of a little indie movie called Garden State, which in 2004 took the indie world s heart and made almost $27 million?
That guy started an internet feeding frenzy earlier this year when he decided to crowdfund a follow-up called Wish I Was Here at Kickstarter. He killed his goal of $2 million in a couple of days and ended up with $3.1 million -- along with a chorus of naysayers who protested that a Hollywood star had co-opted a tool for the unwashed masses.
We disagree. Totally. Making independent films like Garden State is a Sisyphean task in the current moviemaking system. And Braff is not in it for the money. He s in it for love. We salute his commitment to telling good stories using the power of social media.
And as he wrote on Twitter: Haters gonna hate. The angry will only get angrier. I choose love. Amen. - Sharon Waxman
3. MAHA DAKHIL
When TheWrap back in March, Maha Dakhil was one of the names that continually came up as an agent bound to lead the next generation at Hollywood s largest talent shop.
To that point, she represents a bevy of rising directors with movies coming out this fall, including Lee Daniels ( The Butler ), Steve McQueen ( Twelve Years a Slave ) and Denis Villeneuve ( Prisoners ). On the talent side, she works with Natalie Portman and some guy named Tom Cruise.
She also has fully embraced the increasing international nature of Hollywood, signing successful French directors like Michel Hazanavicius, who won an Oscar for The Artist, and Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, whose The Intouchables is the second highest grossing film in French history.
Dakhil told TheWrap she is focused on igniting creative exchanges with artists from different corners of the world. Packaging is more than putting pieces together, it s about bringing people together who are like-minded and encouraging them to work together.
Oh, she also represents Gary Ross, who launched Hollywood s biggest new franchise -- The Hunger Games. - Lucas Shaw
4. LENA DUNHAM JENNI KONNER
Producers, HBO s Girls
While much has been written about Girls creator Lena Dunham, she isn t changing Hollywood without a helping hand from her producing partner, Jenni Konner.
Dunham and Konner are part of a wave of female writers who are inspiring a new generation by tackling sensitive topics and other comic horrors that network shows have long considered off limits.
Lena and Jenni aren t afraid to dip into areas that other people might be reticent to write about. You can get into an argument after every episode because they re raising a lot of new issues that people think are both great and deeply disturbing, Judd Apatow, the executive producer of Girls, told TheWrap.
And while Dunham gets much of the attention, Konner is an essential part of the process.
I ve known Jenni since Undeclared,Official Nike NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Wholesale NFL Jerseys At Cheap Price, and she has really found herself as a writer, Apatow said. She pays attention and knows when to step in and help Lena out when she needs a break. It s an exhausting job to be the visionary of your show and have to act every day and write at night or on the weekend, and Jenni being such a strong writing partner makes that show possible.

5. DAVID HAYES
Entertainment Evangelist, Tumblr
Prior to joining Tumblr, David Hayes worked at Lionsgate, where he was instrumental in the success of The Hunger Games, overseeing the film s digital marketing campaign.
His emphasis on steadily building online word of mouth through social media and consistent streams of new photos and information helped propel the film to more than $600 million at the global box office and cement it as Hollywood s next huge franchise.
As part of his campaign, he also launched an iPhone game that won two Webby Awards and was named Game of the Year by Variety.
Hayes then brought that know-how to Tumblr,New 2013 NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Offer Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys, convincing studios to use the blogging platform for film marketing. After eight to 10 weeks of hard core hustle with friends at the studios, we got 10 out of the top 10, Hayes told TheWrap.
Warner Bros. used it for The Great Gatsby and Disney turned to Tumblr for help with Monsters University, publishing photos and updates about school events from the faux college.
Don t forget the indies. Fox Searchlight is huge on Tumblr, Hayes said. They are very innovative. - Lucas Shaw
6. ZACH JAMES RICH RADDON
How often does a Hollywood studio find a new revenue stream? Not often, which is why Raddon and James have entered into business with every major studio except Disney so far.
ZEFR s core business isn t sexy on its face. It s a YouTube-centric technology and rights-management platform that in the early days consisted of posting movie clips online.
When they saw a video someone else posted from Dirty Dancing that drew almost 100 million views, they realized there was a better business to be had.
They built a technology that could track their videos, taking down the ones the studios don t want up and selling ads against the ones they do and giving the studios a piece of the action. That s the cool part, that we can just bring them checks, James told TheWrap.
ZEFR has since expanded to music, sports and TV, working with Saturday Night Live, Dick Clark Productions and most of the major record labels.
They ve proven so effective at making money for major media companies that they also manage a handful of top influencers YouTube channels, though James would not disclose their partners.
Their next domain? Brands. - Lucas Shaw
7. FRANKLIN LEONARD
Founder, The Black List
Some people strive for cool. Some just are.
Franklin Leonard, a former producer, established his own cool club by creating the Black List, an annual compilation of Hollywood s best unproduced screenplays, chosen by a group of industry insiders (i.e., his friends).
This year, he turned it into a digital platform aimed at cracking open opportunities for budding screenwriters seeking to have their work found, assessed and validated by their peers and industry veterans. It s called , and in eight months some 4,000 scripts have been uploaded, with three dozen member writers finding agency or management representation as a result.
We re creating an ecosystem that balance the needs of the writing community, that protects the integrity of their material, but is also a really good resource to help people who make movies find material as quickly as possible, Leonard told TheWrap.
The Black List has recently concluded deals with the Writers Guild East and West, and with the Sundance Institute, to allow their members to join for free. More than 250 Black List screenplays have been produced as feature films.
Leonard is creating the future of the industry from a core devotion to quality content. It remains to be seen if that devotion can be a profit center. We re rooting for him that it will. - Sharon Waxman
8. MATT MAZZEO
Partner, Lowercase Capital
It s no secret that Hollywood frequently views new media with barely concealed hostility. Yet Mazzeo is part of a new generation of agents and financiers helping to change those attitudes.
At CAA, he helped connect members of the entertainment industry with Internet startups, helping develop digital pioneers like Funny or Die and the celebrity social-media management service WhoSay.
His success caught the attention of Lowercase s investing guru, Chris Saaca. A key backer of Twitter and Kickstarter, Saaca tapped Mazzeo to be the firm s first partner, where he leads a $20-million fund that invests in the media and technology space.
He s already making waves by investing in companies like Big Frame, which brings advertisers and YouTube creators together, and Ranker, a data-driven listing service. He is also serving an ambassador between traditional and new media as old barriers tumble and long-held prejudices soften.
The old knock on Hollywood was that it was only focused on upfront fees and didn t grasp the long-term benefits of building a business, Mazzeo told TheWrap. We re seeing that change dramatically as some artists and agencies are acting more like entrepreneurs by recognizing that the path to wealth is equity -- and they re becoming more willing to take a risk so they can create something enduring. - Brent Lang
9. MELISSA MCCARTHY
Actress, Bridesmaids, The Heat
In the two years since Bridesmaids made a star out of McCarthy, screenwriters have discovered a new opportunity: changing the gender of male characters fit her unique comic talents -- and attract a sizeable underserved audience to boot.
McCarthy s character in Universal s Identity Thief was originally written for a man, but the chance of pairing her larger-than-life personality and gift for physical comedy with Jason Bateman s uptight shtick proved impossible for the studio to resist.
Not only did the reverse casting make the movie funnier, it helped the $35 million comedy gross $174 million worldwide.
Her upcoming film The Heat came together in an incredibly short amount of time, proving that when McCarthy has an open window, studios had better take it. Production started merely two weeks after she signed, and now there s a groundbreaking female buddy-cop movie to counter-program against a sea of male-driven blockbusters such as Man of Steel, White House Down and The Lone Ranger.
There s more to come. McCarthy also beat out a slew of competition for a serio-comic role opposite Bill Murray in St. Vincent de Van Nuys. And her biggest role to date may be as the writer and producer and co-director of Tammy, along with husband Ben Falcone.
Actresses rarely get the chance to make their own movies. Here s hoping McCarthy makes the most of her opportunity. - Jeff Sneider
10. SHANE SMITH
How many media companies get official sanction to enter North Korea?
Vice, the company behind HBO s newsmagazine series Vice, which just finished its first season, pulled it off by shepherding a bunch of basketball players, including gadfly Dennis Rodman, for a friendly basketball game with Korean players. The experience was documented in an episode of the show.
Smith couldn t make the trip, as he is banned from the country for two prior documentaries.
That s just one of many ways in which he has come up with innovative ways of reporting while still working with more traditional media outlets.
Vice began in 1994 as an underground alternative print magazine and has since transformed into a spawling media empire with offices across the globe.
It still publishes the monthly bible for the iconclastic sect, but it has also partnered with Silicon Valley giant Intel for the Creator s Project, a celebration of how entertainment, art and tech work together; launched a record label that worked with artists like Action Bronson and Chromeo; made a movie with the newly renamed Snoop Lion, and racked up more than 2 million subscribers for its YouTube channel.
And all those projects remain a fraction of Vice s business. Vice generates the vast majority of its revenue from producing and distributing both short and long-form content across seven different channels. It has made more than 60 original series on topics such as fashion, music and travel.
What s next? Don t have a clue. - Lucas Shaw
11. BEAU WILLIMON
Creator, House of Cards
Beau Willimon started his career as a playwright, serving up keen tales like Farragut North for the older and wealthier Broadway set. He s now a hero of youthful binge viewers and cord-cutters as one of the creators and the showrunner of the breakthrough Kevin Spacey series that premiered in February on Netflix -- upending the way television has done business for decades.
But even debuting the entire series on one day, on a platform known for shipping and streaming movies and network TV series, didn t hurt the credibility or popularity of the show, which is expected to secure several Emmy nominations.
While Spacey and director David Fincher drew the most attention for the gripping political drama, Willimon oversaw the show, which has been renewed for a second season, on a daily basis. He also had a hand in writing 10 of the show s 13 episodes, ensuring Spacey s vicious double-crossing and Kate Mara s sinful sleuthing tapped people on their couches.
You ll hear time and time again in the TV industry about likeability. I don t give a s--- whether anyone likes my characters, Willimon told TheWrap of the manipulative Spacey character. I do give a s--- whether they re attracted to them. The most interesting characters -- Shakespeare is a great example of this -- are not likeable. Richard III is not likeable. Macbeth is not likeable. Hamlet s not likeable. And yet you can t take your eyes off them because they re something that attracts you to them. - Lucas Shaw
12. FREDDIE WONG
Top Hollywood producers want to work with Freddie Wong, but he s still not sure he wants to work with them.
Who can blame him? Wong and Matthew Arnold have already launched a successful film franchise in Video Game High School, which debuted on their own website last summer and racked up more than 50 million views.
The success of that film, released in increments on and YouTube, spawned a sequel, out this summer. A third movie is all but guaranteed.
Wong has amassed a rabid base not only willing to watch his movies but pay for them as well. Wong funded much of the first VGHS on Kickstarter -- one of the most successful campaigns at the time -- and raised the bar again by raising more than $800,000 for the second one.
Crowdfunded development, being able to build our audience, come up with a cool idea and have them literally and financially participating in that -- we can try to take some of the risk out of film projects, Wong told TheWrap.
Take that Zach Braff. Whoops, he s on this list, too. - Lucas Shaw
Here is a video of four of the Innovators who spoke at TheWrap s Grill@ Locations Show conference on Friday June 28, the day this list was announced.
For the record: An earlier version of this story said that Shane Smith took part in Vice s expedition to North Korea. Smith is banned from the country due to documentaries stemming from his past visits.

[แก้ไข] Eric Wood- -I knew I wanted to stay here-
<html>Russ Brandon, Doug Whaley, and Eric Wood talk about the contract extension the Bills center signed today.C Eric Wood Contract Extension Press Conference
August 30, 2013
President CEO Russ Brandon: I want to thank everybody for coming out on short notice on a Friday, we appreciate it. This is a great day for the Buffalo Bills. It’s a great day for Eric and his wife Leslie. It’s a great day for Bills fans everywhere to have Eric signed long-term. As I mentioned back on January 1st, this sort of symbolizes what we were talking about. Being aggressive and trying to keep our draft picks and keep our core players long-term. Obviously we’re thrilled to have Eric in the fold for many years to come. He embodies everything that we talk about. He’s tough, he’s aggressive, he’s a competitor and he’s a dynamic leader. That’s what we’re looking to build here in Buffalo. I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank Jim Overdorf, our chief negotiator and Eric’s representation, David Dunn and Karen Han for all their efforts over the last view months. I’m going to turn it over to our general manager, Doug Whaley, and then you’ll hear from the man of the hour,Doug Marrone- -We can continue to get better-, Eric Wood. General Manager Doug Whaley: I just also want to second that about Jim Overdorf and Eric’s representation. They’ve been putting in tireless hours to get this done and we appreciate their effort. From a philosophical standpoint, we believe to build a consistent team you have to start from the inside out and it doesn’t get more inside than the center position. When you talk about Eric Wood, you talk about leadership and with a young team and we’re trying to instill a lot of different values at this time, we need a leader and he’s a strong leader. He’ll be able to lead us to where we need to go. From this standpoint forward, we’re looking to keep building and keep identifying and drafting good, talented players and sign them for the long-term. Without further ado the man of the hour, Eric Wood. C Eric Wood: Thanks Russ, thanks Doug. Obviously a very exciting time for me. Wanted to be back in Buffalo and to sign this four year extension means a ton. I want to first of start by thanking Ralph and Mary Wilson, Jim Overdorf, Russ Brandon, Doug Whaley,New 2013 NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Offer Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys, the coaches, the training staff, the strength staff, equipment, everyone in this building that allows us players to succeed on and off the field. First class organization all the way around and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of it for the long term. I wouldn’t have re-signed if I wasn’t extremely excited about where we’re going. Have a ton of faith in our front office right now that we’re going in the right direction and I think it’s going to start soon. Extremely excited about this season. Extremely excited to fill ralph Wilson (Stadium) next week with all the fans for New England. It’s going to be an electric atmosphere and I’m looking forward to it. I want to thank the community who has been so welcoming to me and my family since the day that I got here. The fans, everybody, have been great.
Q: Can you talk about your viewpoint during this whole process,Official Nike NFL Jerseys Supply Shop Wholesale NFL Jerseys At Cheap Price?
A: Yeah, all along I knew I wanted to stay here. I’m comfortable here, in a good comfort. Not comfortable where you’re sitting back and lazy. Comfortable where I love working with the guys I’m working with here and I would never want to leave here. Especially with the direction we’re going and to watch them make the playoffs without me…it’s going to be a special time and when we do it this year, if I would have missed it in years to come, I would’ve never forgave myself. Obviously interest from both sides all along. That’s how I handled all the questions from people asking if I wanted to re-sign or if I was going to re-sign. They have told me all along and been upfront with me that eventually they wanted to re-sign me and I told them I wanted to re-sign here. So obvious interest and great negotiating by Jim Overdorf and my agents allowed me to stay.
Q: What made this area appealing to you?
A: (It is) similar to where I grew up in Cincinnati. A blue collar town, down-to-earth people, good food. Just an area that’s welcoming. People have embraced me since the day I got here an di don’t know if it’s my style of play or just that I was relatable, but people have always embraced me. I knew long term that me and my family would feel comfortable here. Q: How important for you was it to get this done before next Sunday?
A: It’s extremely important. From this point on, all of my focus is on no contract, no outside distractions and that was extremely important. I thought if it did linger on I was mature enough that it wouldn’t affect my play, that it wouldn’t affect my preparation, but deep down just knowing that the risk of something happening or maybe a poor performance could effect a contract, that could definitely come in to play. Q: How rewarding is it to get that next contract?
A: It’s definitely rewarding. This organization has stuck by me through some tough times, some of the toughest times of my life. Two major injuries and I couldn’t have been more thankful for how they supported me through those times and how they’re still willing to give me a long-term extension even though everyone around me and everyone in the media wants to say that I’m injury prone and hopefully I’ll be able to prove that I’m not and hopefully get some good fortune to come in my favor. Like you said, definitely rewarding and definitely happy where I’m at.</html>
[แก้ไข] Pryor to start opener, sources say
<html>has been named the Raiders' starting quarterback for the season opener Sunday, according to two league sources. Head coach told Pryor and his decision Monday morning. Allen said he wasn't going to disclose his choice publicly for competitive reasons. Flynn was the starter throughout training camp but struggled in the third preseason game, on Aug. 23, throwing two interceptions in six passes and fumbling once against the Bears. The Raiders were willing to coach around Flynn's lack of a strong arm in exchange for his "game manager" skills, but Flynn's play and the Oakland fans' boos that night obviously jarred them. Pryor came into the game to loud cheers and led four scoring drives, then started the preseason finale Thursday while Flynn rested a sore arm. Pryor started the last game of the 2012 season for the Raiders for an injured , but Oakland general manager then traded for Flynn from Seattle to be the starter. This would be the second straight year that Flynn has lost his starting job before the season,Adding wellness to workplace goals, as rookie beat out the free-agent signee in Seattle last year. Flynn is guaranteed $6.5 million from the Raiders this season. Pryor, late owner ' last draft pick in 2011 as a supplemental third-rounder, has improved his throwing mechanics but won the job because of his ability to improvise with his feet. He was 14-for-24 for 190 yards and a touchdown with one interception this preseason,[New http://www.nfljerseysfor2013.com/], and ran the ball 11 times for 83 yards and a touchdown. He's a playmaker on a team in dire need of one, and Allen had said the starter will be the quarterback who is best able to move the team and score points. The offense scored 32 points on 14 drives with Pryor at quarterback, compared with 10 points on 13 drives with Flynn behind center. Flynn returned to practice Monday after taking a week off to rest that sore arm. Flynn had tendinitis issues in Seattle, and offensive coordinator said "maybe his confidence got rattled" after he took five sacks in the second preseason game against the Saints. The Raiders' offensive line has been reeling a bit since left tackle went down with a torn triceps, and Pryor's escapability helps cover up mistakes. Allen has declared winners in the other position competitions. Punter Marquette King beat out , Jeron Mastrud will start at tight end ( was cut), and beat out first-round pick for a starting cornerback job. On passing downs,[Official http://www.nfljerseysfor2013.com/nfl-jerseys-c-598], Hayden will play outside, with Porter moving inside to cover the slot receiver. Briefly: None of the other 31 teams claimed quarterback Tyler Wilson off waivers, even with the Raiders already having paid his signing bonus.

THE 21-YEAR-OLD NIGHTINGALE IS OF BENUE DESCENT AND THE SECOND FEMALE TO WIN THE COVETED PROJECT FAME WEST AFRICA CROWN AFTER CHIDINMA. THE 11-TRACK ALBUM CONSISTING OF POP AND R B FUSION WAS SUPERVISED BY A CRACK TEAM OF HIT MAKERS INCLUDING, DEL B OF LIMPOPO FAME, WIZBOY, TEE Y MIX, J SLEEK, SILVA STONE AND SUSPEKT. OGAH OPENED UP TO LANRE ODUKOYA ABOUT HER WORLD OF MUSIC
This is your debut album since you won at MTN Project Fame show,wholesale nike nfl jerseys. What s the album about?
I can tell you that after listening to the songs in the album titled Sometime in August , you would agree with me that the album guarantees a fresh breathe of air to the Naija music scene and an extra feather to the impressive achievements and visibility of the female folk in the music scene. I find a hugely seamless balance between R B and Nigerian contemporary Pop music on the album, backed up with enchanting and strong song writing skills.
Watch out for very notable songs like Suddenly ft Chidinma, Body Hug ft Wizboy, End Of story and the politically charged I Wish Say . I show a great deal of artistic diversity and growth since winning Project Fame. In a nutshell, the album is so worth the wait and a must buy.
What was your early influence in music?
My mother was the choir mistress in the church I attended as a child. She would also remind me of how sweet my voice was when I made those innocent cries which she believed was laced with God s given voice. On the other hand, at first, dad never liked to see me sing,cheap redskins jerseys, he preferred to see me become a nurse. I was in school already when I entered for Project Fame and when he saw how things were turning out, he showed me tremendous support. He even printed banners and rallied support for me to win.
How has life been after winning?
I can t say it has been very easy and I cannot complain as well. First of all, I d prayed for this to happen to me and I must live with it. It was like one was just the kid next door and suddenly you spent three months and the national television. Anywhere I go now, people already recognise me and everyone wants to take photographs with me whether I feel good or not. I have to manage to smile 24hours a day even if I m dying inside. In all, I still feel the simple me. My friends are still my friends, one might add a few new ones, but I don t have airs around me.
What s the relationship between you and Chidinma?
The interesting here is that Chidinma and I wrote JAMB exams and that was because by the time we finished Project Fame, the Nursing School I would have attended had already finished first semester exams. And it was like I have to start all over again, but Chidinma got admission.
What s your love life like?
I m not sure I can do a day without answering this particular question. I m 21 years old and it means I m still very young. I m currently building my future and career,UHF Discount, Bloomberg Complaint Order Teed Up For FCC Vote, a romantic tie now may not do me any good.

Despite the?Senate Foreign Relations Committee s approval of a resolution to use force in Syria, possible American action could fail, Ret. Gen. Michael Hayden said Thursday on Morning Joe.
We re doing this to show our resolve we re going to show they can t get away with this action,redskins jersey,Xbox One release date announced for Nov. 22, said the former director of the?Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency. They re going to want to show—after we act—that these kinds of actions on our part are not cost-free, so we should expect some kind of response from them.
The Senate committee with a 10-7 vote Wednesday. The full Senate and then the House of Representatives will decide on the action after Sept. 9.
This is the least worst option we now have,nike nfl wholesale jerseys, Hayden said. It would be near catastrophic, I think, for American influence in the world for the American Congress not to support this.
A strike will be effective to degrade and deter the Syrian use of chemical weapons in the future, but fundamentally it won t affect Assad s ability to carry out similar actions; there needs to be a change in his mentality and willingness.
The United States must manage the transition in Syria, but interference has been hands-off for too long, Hayden said. The Syrian opposition can t be trusted.
Success is changing their willingness to use these weapons in the future, he said. Success is certainly not guaranteed, is it?
