Some Tamil political prisoners to get bail

The Sri Lankan government on Monday decided to move court for bail in respect of a section of Tamil prisoners.A decision to this effect was taken at a high level meeting attended by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Ministers Tilak Marapana (Law and Order and Prison Reforms); Mano Ganesan (National Dialogue) and D.M. Swaminathan (Rehabilitation and Resettlement). He clarified that “long detention” would include even those who were in jails for five to six years. However, he maintained that case by case examination would be done before moving the court.Asked how many prisoners would get the relief, the Minister replied that he would not be able to give the number. To another query whether those who would get the relief would be released by the first week of November, Marapana said “I can’t give you the timeframe but the Attorney General has been asked to take appropriate action.” He added that there were 217 prisoners in total and in respect of 30 cases, no charges were filed against prisoners concerned. About 10 days ago, the Minister told this correspondent that 50 to 60 prisoners without charges were in jails.According to Ganesan, the meeting also decided not to grant amnesty.The meeting was held in the backdrop of a fast undertaken by the prisoners a few weeks ago, demanding their release. Last week, the Cabinet decided to get a recommendation of Justice Minister Wijedasa Rajapaksa on “accelerating judicial procedures” for the prisoners. A majority of about 12,000 members of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam who had surrendered at the end of the Eelam War had been rehabilitated by the government, according to an official release issued following the Cabinet meeting last week. (Colombo Gazette) The prisoners, numbering 217, have been accused of having indulged in terrorist activities and held under the Prevention of Terrorism Act or Emergency laws. They are said to be in jails for varying periods ranging from five years to 15 years. Marapana told The Hindu that steps would be taken to provide relief to those who were experiencing “long detention” and having “marginal charges.” read more

Valeant accused of racketeering in classaction lawsuit from NY health funds

by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 29, 2016 2:43 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 29, 2016 at 3:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Valeant accused of racketeering in class-action lawsuit from N.Y. health funds MONTREAL – Valeant Pharmaceuticals is being sued by New York health benefit funds providers that allege the embattled Canadian drug manufacturer overcharged for medications in contravention of racketeering and consumer-protection legislation.New York Hotel Trades Council & Hotel Association of New York City and the Detectives’ Endowment Association of New York filed a class-action lawsuit Monday against Valeant and former Philidor Rx Services founders Andrew and Matthew Davenport, along with several affiliated companies.The health benefit funds providers, which reimburse employees and retirees for prescription drugs, allege they “unnecessarily paid for or incurred excessive costs” for Valeant medications.Valeant (TSX:VRX) faces three counts, including alleged violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and the New York Deceptive Practices Act. All defendants have been accused of conspiring to violate RICO through activities such as mail fraud, wire fraud and use of interstate facilities in aid of racketeering.The plaintiffs are seeking a jury trial and unspecified damages over US$5 million on behalf of themselves and other similar third-party payers between Jan. 2, 2013 and Oct. 30, 2015.“Valeant is aware of these recent claims, and as previously indicated intends to defend itself against such claims,” the company said.“Valeant cannot comment further on ongoing litigation.”The lawsuit against the Quebec-based drugmaker and others was filed 10 days after U.S. mutual fund T. Rowe Price, a former large Valeant shareholder and Alleghany Corp. filed a fraud suit over actions it claims cost investors billions of dollars. Valeant has said that claim is similar to one filed in October by a teachers’ retirement fund.In Monday’s 57-page filing, the plaintiffs allege Valeant charged exorbitant prices for Valeant-branded drugs, routed prescriptions through Philidor, resubmitted rejected claims through other pharmacies to make it seem they hadn’t been previously rejected, substituted Valeant-branded drugs for generic equivalents, and offered incentives to discourage patients from complaining.None of the allegations has been proven.Valeant is also reportedly under a criminal fraud investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s office in New York over its activities with mail-order pharmacy Philidor.It faces other investigations in several states along with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which is looking at whether Salix — acquired by Valeant last year — allegedly misled investors about inventory levels.Valeant’s shares fell 1.87 per cent on Monday, closing at C$39.39 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Prior to a series of problems that began to emerge last September, the company’s shares had peaked at C$341.02 on July 23, 2015.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter. read more

Britains first female Muslim jockey inspired by Duchess of Sussex and Great

The Duchess of Cornwall has been president of the Club since April 2009.“I met the Duchess of Cornwall two weeks ago at a reception at Clarence House,” Khadijah said. “She was very lovely and told me that she had heard about today’s race and that she would be keeping an eye out for how I get on. I was so surprised. It was amazing that she had heard about me. “And her genuine love for horses was a mutual subject that we saw see eye to eye on. She loves the club and supporting it. “She said she was happy that I have made it this far and to see me racing. She also wished me good luck.”Khadijah is also taking part in a documentary, Riding a Dream, directed by Mattia Reiniger and Tom Bolwell. It is being produced by ITV Racing’s Oli Bell and his brother Philip Bell, and funded by Great British Racing, Goodwood Racecourse and The Racing Foundation. She was inspired to reach for the top of the sport after watching fellow Muslim, Nadiyah Hussain, compete on the Great British Bake Off. “I followed the show and I was really happy that she won,” she said. “She is such a lovely woman and it is so sad that she started receiving hate. That really brought me down because she does not deserve that. “Seeing her on TV was really inspirational. I loved seeing her try her best every episode. It shows that being a Muslim doesn’t change anything – it is an equal playing field and if you are good at what you do then you can succeed. It was really encouraging.” Khadijah Credit: JON CARTWRIGHT The Duchess of Sussex has inspired Khadijah to reach to the top of the sport Despite her two idols receiving heavy amounts of criticism, Khadijah said that she has not been the target of nasty online comments or trolling.“Everything so far has been really positive for me,” she said.The chance to compete in this year’s race is a lifelong dream of Khadijah’s, who developed an obsession with horses from the age of five. It was not until her mother picked up a leaflet at their local mosque for the Ebony Horse Club in Brixton four years later that she was able to learn how to ride.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Britain’s first female Muslim jockey has revealed that the Duchess of Sussex and Great British Bake Off’s Nadiya Hussain are her inspiration to win. Khadijah Mellah,18, is taking part in the Magnolia Cup on Thursday at Goodwood where she will show off a Nike-branded hijab in the charity horse race alongside former Olympian Victoria Pendleton.The student, from Peckham in south London, only began riding racehorses in April this year but is confident that she can succeed on the track and is driven by the Duchess of Sussex, who she described as a “groundbreaking woman”. “She has managed to make history in the Royal family,” Khadijah told The Telegraph. “But I actively see people hating that the Royal family has a woman colour – this should be something that we encourage. It should not be a negative thing. “To hear that she is struggling because people are hating her drives me more and makes me feel like I need to prove a point.  The Duchess of Sussex has inspired Khadijah to reach to the top of the sport read more

SkinnyBoard un clavier ultrafin et résistant à leau

first_imgSkinnyBoard : un clavier ultrafin et résistant à l’eau La marque iKey sort avec ce SkinnyBoard SB-101 un clavier filaire résistant et fin, qui pourrait fort servir à ceux qui utilisent leurs claviers dans des conditions mouvementés ou qui sont juste très maladroits.Le SkinnyBoard a été conçu en polycarbonate et en caoutchouc, ce qui a permis de le rendre imperméable et résistant à la poussière et aux produits de nettoyage. Les jointures fines entre les touches et le clavier devraient également empêcher les corps étrangers de pénétrer l’appareil. Mais cette résistance n’est pas la seule innovation intéressante de ce clavier.  En effet, celui-ci est également équipé du système de Quicklock qui bloque toutes les touches, pour permettre de les nettoyer sans avoir peur de les activer par inadvertance. En outre, les touches en question sont rétroéclairées, ce qui pour une fois pourrait s’avérer utile, dans les environnements sombres. L’imperméabilité est une qualité rare dans les claviers compacts, et nombre d’eux eux sont déjà décédés à cause d’une tasse de café renversée d’un coup de coude… D’après les informations dévoilées, les dimensions de l’appareil sont minimalistes : 379,47 x 149,60 x 12,70 mm, ce qui le rendra aisément transportable. Petit bémol, iKey ne donne pas de prix, et indique seulement une commercialisation prochaine. Ce n’est donc sans doute pas le clavier ultime, mais il pourrait avoir une flopée d’utilisations pertinentes car si l’ordinateur peut être isolé de tout, c’est plus difficile pour le clavier !Le 27 février 2012 à 09:06 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Net neutrality has been dead for a year What you need to

first_img Apr 9 • Mitch McConnell: Democrats’ net neutrality bill is ‘dead on arrival’ in Senate Comments reading • Net neutrality has been dead for a year: What you need to know Tags Are any of the old rules still in place?The one rule that was spared is the so-called “transparency rule,” which requires broadband providers to disclose how they manage their networks. The FCC now requires service providers to commit to disclosing when and under what circumstances they block or slow traffic, as well as if and when they offer paid priority services.What about the FCC’s comment system? I’ve heard there were issues. What’s that all about?More than 22 million comments were filed with the FCC when the agency was considering repealing the 2015 rules. That was a record. But analysis of the comments showed that an overwhelming number of them were duplicates or submitted by automated bots. Roughly 2 million of the 22 million comments submitted used stolen identities. About half a million were sent from Russian email addresses. Then there was the controversy over a supposed cyberattack on the comment system that temporarily shut down the platform on the same day thousands of net neutrality supporters responded to comedian John Oliver’s call to flood the agency with comments.That “cyberattack” didn’t happen. The FCC’s inspector general reported in August last year that the FCC had misled Congress and the public when it said the outage in May 2017 was the result of a cyberattack. Instead, the IG suggested the outage occurred because the agency hadn’t prepared its website for a flood of visitors.What are the states doing?Attorneys general in 22 states and the District of Columbia have joined pro net neutrality consumer groups and Firefox publisher Mozilla in suing the FCC in federal court to reverse the FCC’s move.There are also a number of states, such as California and Washington, that have passed their own laws governing an open internet. Several other states, including New York, are considering similar legislation.California’s law is based on the 2015 protections, but it goes further. It also outlaws some zero-rating offers, such as AT&T’s, which exempts its own streaming services from its wireless customers’ data caps. The law also applies the net neutrality rules to so-called “interconnection” deals between network operators, something the FCC’s 2015 rules didn’t explicitly do.The FCC and Department of Justice have questioned the states’ right to enact their own net neutrality laws.The FCC actually included a provision in the “Restoring Internet Freedom” order, which pre-empts states from creating their own regulations. The Justice Department has filed lawsuits against some states, including California.017-nyc-net-neutrality-protest-verizon-hq-dec-7-2017 Sarah Tew/CNET What happened to California’s net neutrality law?The new law was supposed to take effect Jan. 1. But last fall, the state struck a deal with the Justice Department to temporarily not enforce the new law until a lawsuit challenging the FCC’s repeal of the federal regulations is resolved.What’s it all mean for me?The repeal of the FCC’s net neutrality rules was a big change in policy. But for most people, things haven’t really changed.Over time, though, they could. Whether you think the changes will be for better or worse depends on whom you believe.Pai and many Republicans say freeing up broadband providers from onerous and outdated regulation will let them invest more in their networks. Net neutrality supporters, including Democrats like Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania and Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts, consumer advocacy groups, civil rights organizations and technology companies like Google and Mozilla say that repealing the 2015 rules and stripping the FCC of its authority will lead to broadband companies controlling more of your internet experience. This may lead to higher prices. What’s going on with the lawsuits?The US Federal Appeals Court for the DC Circuit in February heard oral arguments in the case challenging the FCC’s repeal of the 2015 rules.Two of the big questions being asked in this lawsuit are whether the FCC had sufficient reason to change the classification of broadband so soon after the 2015 rules were adopted and whether the agency has the right to pre-empt states, like California, from adopting their own net neutrality laws. As mentioned, California struck a deal with the Justice Department in October that it wouldn’t enforce its net neutrality law until the lawsuit in the DC Circuit, challenging the agency’s repeal, is resolved.A decision in the case is expected sometime this summer. What is Congress doing?Democrats and Republicans agree Congress should ultimately step in to end the regulatory ping-ponging that has been going on between Democrats and Republicans when they control the commission. But that’s where the agreement ends. Democrats in the House passed the Save the Internet Act, which would essentially reinstate the 2015 order and once again make the FCC the agency in charge of policing broadband. But Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has blocked it from a vote. Republicans oppose the bill, saying they are still worried that the FCC will have too much control over the internet. And they’re pushing for a bipartisan compromise. While it’s clear the bill would have an uphill battle in the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans, Democrats were able to pass a Congressional Review Act resolution in the Senate last year that would’ve repealed the FCC’s order to dismantle the 2015 rules. But it’s unlikely any Republicans will defect again to pass this legislation, even if Democrats succeed in getting it to the floor of the Senate.If it passes both houses of Congress, it still has to be signed into law by Trump. And White House advisors have already said they are advising the president to veto it. This story was originally published on April 23, 2018. It has been repeatedly updated, most recently on June 11, 2019. Beer helps explain battle brewing over net neutrality Internet Politics Aug 26 • Activists challenge 2020 candidates to sign net neutrality pledge Apr 10 • Democrats’ net neutrality bill passes House Net Fix Net neutrality AT&T FCC • Share your voice It’s been a year since the Obama-era net neutrality protections, which ensure all internet traffic is treated equally, were erased. Although the doom-and-gloom prediction of a broken internet hasn’t yet come to pass, the future of the network is still very much in flux. At stake is who, if anyone, will police the internet to ensure that broadband companies aren’t abusing their power as gatekeepers. The 2015 rules adopted under FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, a Democrat, prevented broadband providers from blocking or slowing access to the internet, or charging for faster access. The rules also firmly established the FCC’s authority as the “cop on the beat” when it comes to policing potential broadband abuses.That all changed when FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, a Republican, took charge of the agency in 2017, threw out the old rules and stripped the FCC of its authority. Now, net neutrality supporters, broadband companies and the world await a federal appeals court decision expected this summer that will clarify whether the FCC’s repeal is even legal. Meanwhile, Democrats in Congress and supporters in states vow to keep the fight alive and are pushing for legislation that would reinstate net neutrality.Even though the Republican-led Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal the rules in December 2017, it wasn’t until six months later on June 11, 2018, that the rules officially came off the books.The fight continues as net neutrality activists plan protests Tuesday to mark the first anniversary. Senate Democrats are also trying to force a vote on the Save the Internet Act, which the House passed in April. The legislation would restore the FCC’s authority to police the internet and would restore the 2015 rules, including a ban on blocking, throttling and paid prioritization.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (center), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (left of Pelosi) and other Democrats announce legislation to restore net neutrality protections at the US Capitol on March 6, 2019.  Mandel Ngan / AFP/Getty Images FCC Chairman Pai led the fight to repeal, claiming the rules were based on outdated, heavy-handed  regulations, which stifled broadband investment. Since the repeal, Pai claims broadband investment has gone up.”The latest evidence reaffirms that our policies are working,” he said in a statement the day before the anniversary of the repeal. “Today’s figures show that investment in our nation’s broadband networks rose in 2018 for a second straight year, with an estimated increase of $3 billion.”But net neutrality supporters argue Pai’s claims are off base and that investment among the largest broadband companies has actually declined since the repeal.”Verizon, Comcast and Charter invested less in their networks after the net neutrality rules were repealed,” said Gigi Sohn, an adviser to former Chairman Wheeler. “And AT&T recently announced that it would do the same.”But worse than that, Sohn and other net neutrality supporters say Pai’s repeal effectively stripped the FCC of its role in protecting consumers and competition in the broadband market. And the consequences have been dire.”As a result, a fire department has no recourse when Verizon throttles its broadband, and AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint can sell precise geolocation information for its customers to data brokers who then sell them to bounty hunters without consequence,” Sohn said, referring to news last year that Verizon slowed the Santa Clara Fire Department’s service to a crawl while first responders were fighting wildfires in California and allegations that major wireless carriers have been selling customer location data.If you still don’t feel like you understand what all the hubbub is about, have no fear.  We’ve assembled this FAQ to put everything in plain English.What’s net neutrality again?Net neutrality is the principle that all traffic on the internet should be treated equally, regardless of whether you’re checking Facebook, posting pictures to Instagram or streaming movies from Netflix or Amazon. It also means companies like AT&T, which bought Time Warner, or Comcast, which owns NBC Universal, can’t favor their own content over a competitor’s.What were the original Obama-era rules?The regulation prohibited broadband providers from blocking or slowing traffic and banned them from offering so-called fast lanes to companies willing to pay extra to reach consumers more quickly than competitors. It also established a so-called “general conduct rule” that gave the FCC power to step in when it felt ISPs were doing something that hurt competition or ultimately hurt consumers. Why has the issue become so divisive?To make sure the rules stood up to court challenges, the agency also put broadband in the same legal classification as the old-style telephone network, which gave the FCC more power to regulate it. The stricter definition provoked a backlash from Republicans, who said the move was clumsy and blunt. They claim the Democrats’ bill to restore the rules will give the FCC too much authority to regulate ISPs.FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, appointed by President Donald Trump, called the old rules “heavy handed” and “a mistake.” He’s also argued the rules deterred innovation because internet service providers had little incentive to improve the broadband network infrastructure. (You can read Pai’s op-ed on CNET here.) Pai claims he took the FCC back to a “light” regulatory approach, pleasing both Republicans and internet service providers.Supporters of net neutrality say the internet as we know it may not exist much longer without the protections. Big tech companies, such as Google and Facebook, and internet luminaries, including Tim Berners-Lee, fall in that camp.Were the 2015 rules ever challenged in court?As a matter of fact, they were. AT&T as well as a couple of industry groups sued the government, arguing the FCC didn’t have the authority to reclassify broadband. But in 2016, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the rules, dealing the FCC a significant victory. The ruling made it clear the FCC could regulate broadband. AT&T tried to appeal the decision to the US Supreme Court. And Trump’s Department of Justice urged the court to take the case. But ultimately, the high court rejected the appeal. And that 2016 ruling stands.What happened to the 2015 rules?The FCC, led by Pai, voted on Dec. 14, 2017, to repeal the 2015 net neutrality regulations. On June 11, 2018, the rules officially came off the books. As a consequence, today there aren’t rules that prevent broadband providers from slowing or blocking your access to the internet. And there’s nothing to stop these companies from favoring their own services over a competitor’s.One of the most significant changes that’s often overlooked is that the FCC’s “Restoring Internet Freedom” order also stripped away the FCC’s authority to regulate broadband, handing it to the Federal Trade Commission.Does this mean no one is policing the internet?The FTC is the new cop on the beat. It can take action against companies that violate contracts with consumers or that participate in anticompetitive and fraudulent activity. But critics, which include consumer advocates and Democrats such as Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, complain the FTC doesn’t have the technical expertise to handle net neutrality complaints.  They also claim the FTC lacks the FCC’s rule-making authority and it can take years to investigate complaints. 2:10 Now playing: Watch this: Net Fix 99+ See Alllast_img read more

Development Group Works with the Least Fortunate

first_imgIn 1999, when an organization that works with the homeless population was given the opportunity to redevelop of the former site of the legendary Memorial Stadium on Baltimore’s East 33rd Street, once the home of the Baltimore Colts and Baltimore Orioles, into a campus of affordable mid-rise housing for seniors, many were surprised.After the plan to erect the Baltimore professional sports complex (now home of Orioles and Baltimore Ravens) at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was announced, prominent developers jockeyed for position to grab the prime real estate on East 33rd Street. However, the efforts of a burgeoning organization devoted to representing Baltimore’s underserved men, women, and families, ultimately won the contract.GEDCO’s Stadium Place, which sits on the site of the former Memorial Stadium, offers services to individuals with mental illness and the formerly homeless. (Google Maps)Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation, or GEDCO, formed in 1984 when seven pastors in Northern Baltimore joined forces to address the lack of affordable housing for older adults. The group first formed Epiphany House, a former antebellum hotel, now renovated into permanent housing for 33 seniors and older adults with disabilities.As the group’s needs grew, so did the organization. In 1991, the group formed GEDCO, a development corporation. They also began offering housing for men and women grappling with mental illnesses and individuals who were formerly homeless and the group also opened a food pantry.When the Memorial Stadium space became available, Reverend Jack Sharp, GEDCO’s founder, supported by area neighborhood associations, lobbied local politicians in order to secure the space. In 1999, GEDCO was awarded the rights to develop what is today referred to as Stadium Place, which over 400 seniors today call home.According to the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, approximately 29,670 Marylanders experienced homelessness in 2016. GEDCO President Perry Savoy notes that according to population experts, of the tens of thousands of individuals turning 65 years old each day, the majority do not have adequate savings and are in need of affordable housing.Now in its 26th year, GEDCO continues to grow. It currently offers permanent housing to over 530 individuals, and emergency food and financial services to more than 7,000 individuals. GEDCO will hold its annual Thanksgiving Tribute on Nov. 16.Nate Fitzgerald is a resource development associate for Baltimore based GEDCO, a development corporation.last_img read more

Quentin Tarantinos Star Trek Movie is Happening and Will Be RRated

first_img ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Teases Troubled Patrick StewartHow Designers Achieved the Sci-Fi Sound Magic of ‘The Orville’ Stay on target Nobody asked for it, and the more you think about it, the more wrong it seems, but it looks like Quentin Tarantino is making a Star Trek movie. The news broke earlier this week that Tarantino had pitched an idea for a Star Trek sequel to J.J. Abrams, and that Abrams liked what he heard. Things have reportedly moved very quickly since then and Tarantino met in a writers’ room with The Revenant writer Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce. The three hammered out ideas for the new Star Trek film, and Deadline reports that one of those three (probably Smith) will get the job of writing the screenplay.So there’s going to be a new Star Trek movie. That’s usually cause for celebration. I really enjoyed the 2009 alternate universe reboot, and Star Trek Beyond was also really good. It was the best of the three, really. Star Trek into Darkness is the weakest of the new movies, but hey. It was still better than Nemesis. And The Final Frontier. At this point, there are more good Star Trek movies than bad ones, especially in recent years. It’s Tarantino’s attachment and stipulations for the project that may cause fans some concern. For Paramount to use his story idea, he requires that the film be R-rated. Tarantino also hopes to direct the movie, which has a decent chance of happening.Even after Star Trek: Discovery became the first Star Trek to use the word “fuck,” an R-rated Trek feels super weird. Even though Discovery earned a TV-MA rating for its violence and language, if it were released as a movie, it would probably get a PG-13. Conventional wisdom says you’re allowed to have one f-bomb to stay under the R-rating, but plenty of movies have gotten away with two. Especially when they’re used as innocuously as they were in Discovery. Besides, as Anthony Rapp himself put it, it was a “fuck” in the name of science, not anger. In that way, it felt very Star Trek. I don’t imagine Tarantino’s “fucks”(or also likely, “motherfuckers”) to be used in the name of science. In his movies, the word is used in anger or casually peppered into sentences. It’s not quite the vision of the future we’re used to seeing from Star Trek.Mary Wiseman and Anthony Rapp in Star Trek: Discovery (Photo via CBS)The bigger reason why an R-rated Star Trek feels so wrong has to do with accessibility. Despite its TV-MA rating, no one was prevented from watching Star Trek: Discovery as long as they had CBS All Access. An R-rating would prevent a lot of young people from seeing the new movie. I have fond memories of my dad taking me to watch the latest Star Trek movie in theaters as a kid. Even when it was Nemesis. He certainly wasn’t going to take me to see an R-rated Tarantino movie. The fact that the next generation of Star Trek fans might not be able to see the next big film in the franchise feels like a problem.Of course, there is no movie yet. We can’t really judge anything until we at least see a trailer. And hey, even with the rating, there’s every possibility that this could turn out great. Tarantino is a talented director, and he can shoot dialog very well. He can bring a flair to those Prime Directive policy debates and moral crises on the bridge that are hallmarks of Star Trek. He can also shoot a very stylish action scene. Tarantino has the tools to make a great Star Trek movie no matter what it’s rated, so we should see what shape it takes before decrying the new direction. A bold new take on the franchise by an obsessive fan could be worthwhile. As long as he doesn’t bring about Star Trek’s first n-word. He has an… uncomfortable history in that department.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
