Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra, who is popular for sharing inspirational content on his Twitter account, once again shared the values ​​of the Japanese people that are worthy of a global audience. He posted a video from the stadium of the “Qatar 2022 World Cup” on Tuesday.

“They said they weren’t doing it for the cameras, but I’m glad the cameras caught them anyway. The values ​​they display are worthy of a global audience. #WorldcupQatar2022,” the billionaire captioned the clip.

In the video, Japanese people were seen cleaning the stadium at the end of the World Cup opener, despite knowing there was no game in the stadium.

A person from Saudi Arabia who was amazed to see such values ​​said “someone convinces me that this is normal”. “The Japanese have decided to clean up the stadium. It’s not even their match!” he said.

He also helped those people and asked them “why are you cleaning up the thing that doesn’t concern you?”

The Japanese there replied, “We never leave. The Japanese never leave trash behind. We respect the place. Not for the cameras.”

“I thought there were only one or two people, but they’re all over the stadium. That’s the thing I heard about. But I never thought it was real! They picked up the flags from the ground and put most of them on chairs. All my respect!” the person said, hugging a Japanese man who was cleaning the World Cup stadium.

Take a look at the video below:

The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 kicked off on November 20 at the Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail. Argentina will face Saudi Arabia in the opening match of their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign on Tuesday. Argentina and Saudi Arabia have never met in a World Cup final previously.

Weddings are definitely my “bread and butter,” he said, but the company has also leaned “heavily” into producing narrative shorts.

“That culminated in this showcase, where we’re going to show a handful of films that we’ve made over the past six years, all in one night to celebrate the creation of films in this field, and also to launch our brand-new short film, “The Rise of Elsie Matthews,” Cox said.

During the premiere and the two-hour film screening, 10 short films will be screened, ranging from 7 minutes to 15 minutes each. These films have been screened at film festivals around the world and several of them have won awards. The films represent a sample of the many films produced by Average Joe Films.

“One of the things that I like to focus on in my storytelling process is, first of all, that I like to set my stories in the Midwest, because that’s an area I know and know about. identify, and I think Hollywood doesn’t exactly represent the Well of the Midwest. It takes a Midwestern voice to portray Midwestern stories. So, I set a lot of my stories in the Midwest, first of all, he said.

“Then I just try to build stories around the imperfections of humanity. It’s really easy to have a hero, but having a flawed hero or a flawed character to build a story around is always much more interesting, because it’s more relevant to people. Another thing is that I like to keep my films produced in and around Middletown. I have a heart for that. I love this town,” Cox said.

Cox was born and raised in Middletown, where he currently resides with his wife, Caroline, and their daughters, Naomi and Noelle. In addition to filmmaking, Cox enjoys playing guitar and is actively involved in his church, Middletown Nazarene. To learn more about Average Joe Films, visit www.averagejoefilms.com.

The World Series draws its second-lowest TV audience ever: What the ratings mean https://fiftysix.net/the-world-series-draws-its-second-lowest-tv-audience-ever-what-the-ratings-mean/ Tue, 08 Nov 2022 22:41:34 +0000 https://fiftysix.net/the-world-series-draws-its-second-lowest-tv-audience-ever-what-the-ratings-mean/ The 2022 World Series gave fans a no-hitter, an onslaught of home runs, two big-market teams and a heartwarming storyline with Houston’s Dusty Baker finally securing his managerial championship ring at age 73.

The 2022 World Series gave fans a no-hitter, an onslaught of home runs, two big-market teams and a heartwarming storyline with Houston’s Dusty Baker finally securing his managerial championship ring at age 73.

But that still hasn’t made for must-see television, based on the series’ latest viewership numbers released Tuesday, compared to baseball’s past fall classics.

The Astros’ six-game series victory over the Phillies averaged 11.78 million viewers on Fox and 12.03 million viewers combined (Fox, Fox Deportes and streaming), the network said, which is a good number amid the harsh realities of the modern television universe, but still makes for one of the least-watched global series on record.

In fact, it only trails the 2020 pandemic-affected Fox TV average of 9.94 million viewers (Dodgers over Rays). The Braves’ six-game win over the Astros last year averaged 11.94 million for the network, which has been broadcasting the World Series since 2000.

It’s bad, right?

Not necessarily from a strategic perspective, said a TV industry insider. In fact, it’s probably the so-called new normal for World Series viewership, as baseball, like everything else on TV, tries to find a balance amid seismic shifts in viewing habits and the consumer technology.

“Show me something that sets an all-time (viewership) record somewhere,” said media analyst and former Fox Sports executive Patrick Crakes. “That’s the range it’s in. 50 years ago, the World Series was in the top 10 prime time shows alongside ‘Mannix’ and it still is today. Qu what else does it do? The NFL and a few other things.

Gareth Bale and LAFC propel MLS Cup to best American audience in 25 years: Sports on TV

In other words, outside of professional and college football, everyone’s viewership has declined as viewer options have increased.

“The number of options to spend time with continues to grow infinitely,” Crakes said.

That context is important when analyzing the World Series, he added, noting that baseball expects to earn about $11 billion this season.

“MLB has never made so much money, never reached so many people,” Crakes said. “Even with the problems of the regional sports network, it affects more people than ever.”

It’s also important to remember that prior to 2020, Nielsen audience tracking did not measure out-of-home audiences (fans at sports bars, restaurants, watch parties, etc.), so Older totals are larger than officially known.

Fox said Houston’s deciding game on Saturday night, which faced competition from college football and other sports, averaged 13 million total viewers (12.87 million on Fox TV alone). It’s the lowest average ever for Game 6, but it still garnered one of the biggest audiences on American television that night.

The series’ highest viewership was 13.01 million total viewers (12.76 million Fox alone) for Game 5 last Thursday – a night the World Series topped Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football” stream. Prime Video Eagles-Texans. This face-off only happened because Halloween match 3 was delayed for a day due to weather.

Last year’s deciding sixth game between the Braves and the Astros averaged 14.14 million viewers, and two years ago – in the middle of the first year of the pandemic that shortened the regular season of the MLB at 60 games per team – the Dodgers’ Game 6 deciding game averaged 12.81 million.

The 2020 series was the least-watched on record, and television in general (and live sports in particular) has slowly reclaimed audiences – a process made chilling by the current cord-cutting trend that is bringing down dozens of million cables. Streaming subscriptions haven’t made up for cable’s losses in eyeballs and dollars.

When Houston won its first championship in 2017, the series lasted seven games (and the cheating scandal has yet to be uncovered). Game 6 that year averaged 22.22 million viewers while Game 7 jumped to 28.24 million.

If the 2022 World Series had played seven full games, the overall average would likely have been a bit higher, as Game 7s typically do up to 75% better than the average viewership for the first six games, according to information provided l year by Mike. Mulvihill, executive vice president of Fox Sports and head of strategy and analysis.

Yet even with World Series viewership down significantly from the past (and baseball losing eyeballs and with a grizzled audience), Fox and MLB do not face dire economic consequences immediately. Why? Live “jewel” sporting events such as the World Series still dominate everything else on TV, and advertisers continue to pay a premium to reach different demographics.

Fox is paying MLB $729 million a year through 2028 for its broadcast rights package that includes the World Series. The Championship is a crown jewel TV show, but these live sports offerings are usually more about the daily live game inventory that populates the channels and streamers.

Advertisers spent $178 million on commercial airtime with Fox during the World Series, according to data provided by ad metrics data firm EDO Inc.

That’s up from $163 million last year and $162 million in 2020 (all six-game series). Before the pandemic, 2019 saw $302 million spent on ads during the Nationals-Astros seven-game series, while the Red Sox’ five-game win over the Dodgers in 2018 accounted for $239 million in ad spend. , according to ODE data.

The biggest spenders this year were Samsung Galaxy ($8.2 million for 22 seats) and Capital One and GEICO ($6.3 million each).

Game 5 on Nov. 3 saw the highest brand spend of the six-game series at $33.46 million, according to EDO data.

“Advertisers continue to appreciate it locally and nationally,” Crakes said.

Fox said it was the most streamed global series in network history with an average viewership of 232,307 minutes for the six games. The network broadcasts through its digital platforms and does not have a standalone paid streaming service like Peacock or ESPN+.

While streaming is relatively new and doesn’t pay the bills the way linear TV does for networks, watching baseball’s historic TV numbers is a crash course in how the broadcast industry has changed in the midst of the proliferation of viewer options and the fragmentation of the media landscape.

MLB hasn’t seen a World Series game among the 40 million viewers since the Cubs’ decisive game in 2016 – a series that involved two of the most title-hungry clubs in the game. baseball since 50 million people watched Game 7 of the 1991 Twins-Braves series, according to the Sports Media Watch database.

The most recent World Series game to average at least 30 million viewers was Game 7 of the 2002 Angels-Giants series.

What would it take to get back to those huge audiences?

“Those numbers may be unattainable,” Crakes said, adding that it would take a seven-game, uninterrupted series and likely take a major market game between, say, the Cubs and Yankees to have a chance. .

Barring a cataclysmic change in the entire television industry, baseball or anything outside of the Super Bowl is likely to recoup viewership totals from decades ago. For the World Series, the peak average was 44.2 million viewers for the 1978 Yankees’ 4-2 victory over the Dodgers – the two biggest TV markets in the country. And the most-watched World Series game of all time was the Phillies’ Game 6 victory in 1980 over the Royals, which averaged 54.86 million viewers.

Other interesting viewership ratings, per Sports Media Watch, include 2022 being the first World Series without a Sunday night game since 1990, which may have lowered overall viewership to some extent. Additionally, it was the first series with multiple Saturday night games, which is notable as it is the worst night of the week for viewership totals. This happened this year due to rain on October 31 which pushed Game 6 from Friday to Saturday.

The younger members, especially the Duke and Duchess of York (the latter whose carnal antics are easily portrayed in the series; God knows what will happen to him) and Diana, Princess of Wales, have become considered by the media like members of a soap opera. However, royals regularly do something that soap opera actors don’t – they cost substantial amounts of public money, in return for which, again unlike soap opera stars, they perform a range of public tasks. Any sense of ‘right’, therefore, plays badly with an audience schooled by elements of the tabloid press to find it outrageous, all the more so if the rights holders then behave badly.

While the late Queen and her husband were treated with care and caution – until later in the 1990s hysteria began to hold them partly responsible for the death of their daughter-in-law with her baby. cokehead friend in a car accident in Paris – other royals were not.

There was a proxy civil war waged by the press in which some members were pitted against others – not least the imperfections of most of them contrasting with the wonder of the late Princess of Wales. The mockery sealed the serial character of the exercise and was undoubtedly good for the circulation of some of these newspapers. Their readers have indeed found it entertaining; but good judgment has been suspended in some editorial staff over the harm this could do not only to the head of state’s family, but to the head of state himself and to the country’s international reputation.

[Editor’s note: The following contains some spoilers for The Suspect.]


The thriller in five episodes The suspectavailable to stream for Sundance Now and AMC+, follows Joe O’Loughlin (Aidan Turner), a clinical psychologist with a successful practice and a loving family who becomes something of an online hero after rescuing a young patient who was about to jump off a ledge. The attention he received from the incident puts him on the radar of a veteran police officer and his partner, as they investigate the murder of a young woman found in a shallow grave in a cemetery, but asking for his help reveals suspicious behavior that makes them wonder what he’s trying to hide.

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

During this one-on-one interview with Collider, Turner talked about how he sought to do a project like this, what he loved about the way this story is told, never wanting to deceive the audience, shoot a scene that meant being multi-story when you’re dizzy, and if he’d like to see that character again, because there’s more books in this series by Michael Robotham. He also talked about what drew him to the upcoming series. Fifteen-Lovewhich will air on Prime Video.

Collider: I love these kinds of stories. It’s the kind of stuff I love to read and watch.

AIDAN TURNER: Yeah, me too. I’ve been waiting for one of these for a while. I read a few and thought it was easy for these things to fall into the pattern of being pretty formulaic. And then I read this and there were two episodes when I thought, “I still can’t figure out who this guy Joe is. It’s weird. I love it.” It’s messy and difficult and muddy and unclear, in a good way, and it got me thinking. I’ve been waiting to do a show like this.

One of the things I really love about all of this is that every time you think you figure out what happened and who’s responsible, you realize you have no idea. . You can’t just kick someone out and then move on to the next suspect because you keep going around and back and forth with certain characters. There were times when I was convinced your character didn’t, and other times I was convinced he did.

TURNER: Yeah.

What did you think of how it all turned out in the end? Once you found out exactly what happened, what was your reaction?

TURNER: I wanted it to last longer. That’s what I was fighting for. If you were a fly on the wall in all those early meetings, I kept saying, “I love that ambiguity so much. I want more. When we know who did it, Joe is no longer the suspect, unless you think there’s a huge deception with the public, and there’s some sort of trick or trick that doesn’t probably isn’t satisfying for an audience, to be honest. He goes from suspect to detective.

I like its ambiguity the most. I would push for it to be longer. I wish we were in episode four and still going, “What’s going on?”, because that works well for me. But the producers said, “I think we ran out of steam with Joe.” He is fascinating and he digs holes in himself, everywhere. It starts with what seems like a pretty innocent transgression, but then it snowballs into something else, and he tries to cover it up. And then that thing comes out and he tries to cover something else. It goes on and it goes on. The response from the producers was, “We can’t keep doing this. You can’t do that to an audience. At some point, you have to make that shift, and you have to turn.

I love it, and it’s fun to play. It’s also fun to play on the other side, when he puts on that detective hat. Admittedly, as a reader, when I first read the scripts, I thought, “Oh my God, I like not knowing.” What does a liar look like and what does he look like? Sometimes people who are completely innocent don’t always look that way, and our opinions of what the innocent and guilty look, look, and walk aren’t always accurate. I’m a big fan of true crime. There’s a lot of shows where you’re in an episode and you’re like, “Oh, my God, he’s guilty. Come on, it’s so obvious. And then, the next episode, you say to yourself, “If I were on a jury, I couldn’t convict this person.”

I like this. I like how it makes me feel. I don’t know why, but it’s fun. Especially in theater because you’re not on a jury and you’re not playing with someone’s life. As a viewer, we’re in this safe territory where we can go on, “Why did he do that? He said that, but what is the reason? I like this. I like that in shows. It’s the kind of TV I like to watch.

We realize pretty early on that this guy knows more than he initially lets on, and then he does those things and makes those decisions that make him seem more suspicious or guilty than if he had just handled something a little differently. Was it all on the page? Did part of that behavior and the way he was come from the choices you made, as an actor, just to make him feel like he was hiding something?

TURNER: No, definitely not. In those early discussions, I was adamant about following Joe’s truth. You can’t fool the public. We can’t make him look guilty, just for fun. On second viewing, all of this must be followed. I knew Joe’s background. I knew his truth. I knew why he was floundering and why he was getting nervous, or saying a particular thing, or feeling such and such a thing. Everything is tracked for me. I never performed for the camera, or performed for an audience, or tried to add a twist or a twist that didn’t feel authentic. So, yes, it was still on the page. That was the big thing. It was already on the page. He says these things and makes these mistakes. If you shred something, how do you dispose of it afterwards? If someone asks or needs to see something, how will you explain it? That’s what Joe tries to follow, all the time. Is it just because of the trauma of his recent diagnosis, or is that the person he is? What affects it? What is he trying to hide? What’s just impulsive and a mistake?

You said you were afraid of heights, which makes the opening sequence very interesting. Was it something you knew you might have trouble with? Have you tried to forget you had to?

TURNER: Oh, yeah, 100%. I knew I would have a hard time with this, as soon as I read the very first episode. I thought, “How is this going to work?” We built the top two floors on land. There was no green screen. We had stunt people who were on the 25th floor, or whatever, but I was high enough, enough to have a pretty dodgy ankle, if I had fallen on it. It was high enough for me to make those screams quite authentic that day. I’m not a fan of heights. I never have been and never will be. But if I have to go up somewhere high, it’s good that someone has a camera on me. Then I can show all its glory. That’s what actors do. Sometimes even unconsciously we throw ourselves into things that we find terrifying. I like theatre. The next thing I’m going to do is a play. I love it, but I know there’s going to be two days before we go up where I’m like, “What the hell am I doing here? It’s terrifying. There is a sold out audience. There are 800 people. I don’t know what I’m doing. Why am I doing this? It’s not what I like to do. And then, as soon as that curtain goes up on the first night, you’re like, “Oh, yeah, that’s why.” It’s just something we like to do, as actors, to torture ourselves.

There are other books about this character. Would you like to tell another story with him? Have there been any conversations about the possibility of this?

TURNER: Yeah, there were conversations. I think it would probably be a very different show. I think there’s mileage in Joe and the story and detectives. I shouldn’t talk too much about the second book, but I read it and love it. The third one too, in fact. I’m not quite done with this character yet, but it would be a different kind of show. Listen, I’m not a writer. That’s not what I get paid for, but there are some brilliant people who are. Peter Berry, who worked on our show, is one of them. I’m sure he could write something really satisfying for an audience to see, and for actors to read and want to be a part of. I’m definitely not putting this to bed yet, even though there are no plans, at this time, to do another series. All the actors are busy on other shows now, and so am I, but I’d like to come back to that. It’s something I would like to see again.

You also have Fifteen-Love, which sounds like another interesting story and character. What made you want to do this? Were you a tennis fan before doing this, or is it something you had to learn for the show?

TURNER: So many people in [the UK] are big tennis fans. I’m sure it’s the same in the United States. Once I started touring I realized that people know a lot about tennis and play a lot of tennis. There were really strong scripts. It comes from the same production company as The suspect, World productions. (Show creator) Hania Elkington is actually married to Jake Lushington, who produced The suspect and also produces Fifteen-Love. I was aware of the story. I heard them talking about it. I was like, “I want to read this stuff you’re talking about. Give me the script and let me read it. So, I did, and I loved it. And then we took care of doing it. In fact, tomorrow (October 28, 2022) is my very last day, and I’m ending 16 weeks on it. It was a long shoot. It is quite a dark material that we cover in it. He’s probably the darkest character I’ve played to date. It was amazing to work on and an amazing show to do.

The suspect is available to stream on Sundance Now and AMC+.

The specialist “had been trying to reunite us with Jewel for about two years, and had put us in touch via text and email,” Brzezinski recalled, in a recent interview. “I thought, ‘What a great time to have it. “”Kilcher is set to discuss his Never Broken Foundation, which brings mindfulness and emotional intelligence tools to create positive change.

Inspired by the death of George Floyd, One Hundred More finds two racialized women dealing with both history and personal experience.

Content of the article

Justine A. Chambers and Laurie Young do not leave the front of the stage for the duration of their dance show One Hundred More, presented at Agora de la danse from Wednesday to Saturday. Nor do they turn their backs on the public. They raised their hands (inspired by the “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture) at the start of the show, and – although they moved their arms in different ways throughout – never lowered them. They don’t completely dim the house lights. And they don’t look away from the crowd.

“The play demands a lot from Justine and me, but it demands a lot from the audience,” Young said of the show, which they performed in Vancouver last week and will next perform in Ottawa. One Hundred More centers on the theme of resistance from the perspective of two racialized women confronting both history and personal experience.

“Viewers are always active participants. (We want it to be) clear that they are witnesses to what is happening: the lights are upon you, seeing us as we see you.

Young, who is from Ottawa but has lived in Berlin for more than 20 years, hopes that audiences and artists can “fight together, be together in space, and that there will be real recognition, recognition that we are together for these 55 minutes.

For Chambers, who lives in Vancouver, claiming center stage is a way of saying, “Isn’t it our turn?” It’s also a statement about the dancers who don’t turn their backs on the room, or about the harsh realities addressed in the show.

“(We wanted) to refuse to fade away, from the tension or irregularity of the moment,” she said. “My mother always told me, ‘Don’t turn your back on the door.’ So it’s part of a social choreography of the ways my mother taught me to be in public. We also want (the show) to be relentless, we want to stay with it and stay with you… not to become objects of art, and so it’s not history repeating itself but something happening in front of you. If we have to see each other, we can be in a “now” relationship. ”

Inspired by the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement, and informed by the evolving socio-political realities of the pandemic, the collaboration integrates familiar, even iconic gestures of resistance with the dancers’ more personal, conscious and unconscious gestures. -submission.

The show’s title refers to “the endless amount of opportunity we have, must and continue to resist,” Chambers said.

“After that moment of George Floyd, all of us black people fell apart for the last time, or the thousandth time. And for Laurie, this extreme resurgence of anti-Asian sentiment (during the pandemic) – it was never there, but wow, did it ever turn into something so violent. So there’s a reorientation that’s been happening right now, for me. It may be the excitement of potential change, but also the disappointment that nothing really changes.

Performance is not so much about denouncing injustice as about finding a personal and community space to exist and express oneself in the face of it. Young was hesitant to state a mission statement for the show, but was more comfortable talking about how it felt to perform the piece.

“There’s just a deep solidarity and friendship with Justine, a kinship,” she said. “I feel immense joy and immense sadness, and everything in between. It’s a weird trip to be super present, there in space with the audience.

“I also think the rage and the fear come through,” Chambers said.

“Oh yeah, lots of rage,” Young agreed.

“I’m doing an MFA right now,” Chambers continued. “Last night I was listening to (American gender theorist) Judith Butler talk about how rage is grief, and this idea that if we can get away from rage, we can be in grief. And if we can allow grief not to be a burden, a kind of productive meaning can occur in a relationship.This process of rage turning into grief, then into love and joy, is a journey that takes place in the series.
