‘Downton Abbey’ Creator Julian Fellowes And Star Maggie Smith

This is FRESH AIR. I’m Dave Davies, in for Terry Gross. “Downton Abbey,” the feature film based on the Masterpiece series that ran on PBS for six seasons, opens today in theaters. Much of the cast returns in the movie for a plot set in motion by the visit of King George the V to Downton. In this scene, conflicts emerge as servants at Downton are talking about preparations from the royals with the king’s page, who’s part of the royals advance team. UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #1: (As character) Excuse me. I’m not a butler. I am the king’s page of the back stairs. UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #2: (As character) But how can they eat and get dressed at Raby Castle if the chef and the valet and the maid are all here? UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #1: (As character) We have two of each. The principle valet and the principle dresser will arrive in advance of their majesties who bring an equity, a lady in waiting, two detectives and two chauffeurs. The other chef goes from Raby to Harwood. Four footmen go with him. And the other four come here. Do you all understand me? DAVIES: Today we’ll listen to an interview I recorded with Maggie Smith, who regularly stole scenes ...

TERRATEC helps bring fresh air to Buriticá gold project

TERRATEC has celebrated the successful completion of a 300 m deep, 4.1 m diameter ventilation shaft at the Continental Gold-owned Buriticá gold project, in Colombia. Peruvian mining contractor INCIMMET deployed a custom-built TR2000 Raise Boring Machine (RBM) to excavate the shaft in what TERRATEC said were challenging ground conditions. This put the machine through its paces during its first bore at the mine, the company said. Located approximately two hours’ drive northwest of Medellin, Buriticá is a large high-grade gold deposit encompassing an area of about 75,000 ha in Antioquia. The mining complex, which is in the early stages of development, is Colombia’s first modern underground mine and was designated as a Project of National Strategic Interest by the Colombian government, in November 2015. When in production, it is expected to be Colombia’s largest gold mine, producing 253,000 oz/y of gold. First gold is expected by the end of the year, according to Continental. TERRATEC said: “Arguably the biggest challenge for the mine development project is the area’s geology. Ground conditions at the Buriticá complex largely consist of andesite-porphyry, diorites and monzodiorites ...

Money and image: Framing Mohamed Ali’s face off against Sisi | MadaMasr Money and image: Framing Mohamed Ali’s face off against Sisi

Before September 2, 2019, Mohamed Ali was an aspiring actor and minor celebrity. He looks a bit like actor Asser Yassin, loves horseback riding like Ahmed Elsaka, and is fond of being photographed with his luxury automobiles like Mohamed Ramadan.  But none of that made him leading man material. When he took a gamble and produced a star vehicle for himself — Elbar El Tani (Other Land, 2016) — it lost LE27 million, and he gave it to television networks for free. No one remembers it.  But on September 2, he would suddenly step into the limelight, marking a clear break between everything he accomplished before that date and everything that would come after — without spending LE27 million or enlisting the services of a director or film editor, or even a professional camera. He uploaded a video on his personal Facebook page demanding his money: LE220 million owed to him by the state for contracting services he had rendered on construction projects. Other videos followed. Titled “Exposing corruption among the military elite and the head of the Egyptian state,” the videos offered a detailed account of the extravagant spending he personally witnessed after being hired to implement the pr...

Want to upgrade your frame to Boost spacing but don’t want to buy all new kit?

Want to upgrade your frame to Boost spacing but don’t want to buy all new kit? The Lindarets Boostinator allows the use of existing 12x142mm and 15x100mm hubs and wheels with 12x148mm and 15x110mm Boost frames and forks. Lindarets partnered with Bikeworks Albuquerque to develop the Boostinator. When paired with compatible 15x100mm or 12x142mm hubs, the kits allow existing wheels to be mounted in Boost-standard frames and forks. Disc and drivetrain positions are maintained and, thanks to a quick re-dish, spoke bracing angles are improved. Boostinator kits consist of a hub-specific axle end cap and—in the case of rear kits—a precision-machined rotor spacer with a set of six, high-strength bolts. In keeping with Boost specifications, the disc and cassette are shifted outboard, allowing brakes and derailleurs to function as designed. Each Boostinator kit is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and anodized to military specification in the USA. Rear kits come with appropriate-length high-strength Class 10.9 bolts. The Boostinator DR is compatible with DT-Swiss 12x142mm Star Ratchet (240- and 350-series) rear hubs with 6-bolt (IS) rotor mounts, (Centerlock hubs are not supported). The Boo...

Ashley Fire Department seeking child who sent note of encouragement

In a post on their official Facebook page on Monday evening, department officials uploaded images of the handwritten note which contained a heart and the words, “love fireman.” “If your child or grandchild is responsible for this letter to us. Please message us,” the post stated. “We would like to meet our friend and possibly set up a meet and greet … Thank you. We appreciate the kind words…” The letter was found in the department’s mailbox in the borough building, the post added, noting that the police department received a note as well. WILKES-BARRE — You probably enjoy spotting a robin in a yard, or listening to bird songs on a warm summer day. A bright red cardinal flitting about in a leafy green tree can really catch the eye. Now imagine them all gone, just vanished without a trace. It’s actually happening, Wilkes University’s Jeffrey Stratford said, and it’s happening at a pretty alarming rate. “A paper was just published in the journal Science,” the ornithologist and associate biology professor said. “It was a team of ornithologists and statisticians. They analyzed several types of data sources and they all pointed to the same conclusion: There is a rapid decline of bird...

Spanish Border Fences: The End Of Barbed Wire Dividing Europe From North Africa

The Spanish acting Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska has announced the removal of the concertina wire on top of the border fences dividing the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla from the North of Africa. “We will have safer borders, but without concertinas,” said Grande-Marlaska at the end of August. The concertinas are a type of barbed wire that is formed in large coils. They are frequently used in prison barriers and military operations but also in some border fences like the one dividing the U.S. from Mexico or the one separating the EU from Morocco. Ceuta and Melilla are two small Spanish cities in the North of Africa. Both represent one of the main entries for sub-Saharan migrants and refugees to Europe. Every year, many of them try to cross the Moroccan border hiding in vehicles, swimming along the coast or trying to climb over the border fences looking for a better life. The last episode occurred on August 30, when more than 150 migrants climbed the double fence dividing Morocco from Ceuta, which is six meters high with concertina wire on top. Although most of them made it to the other side of the border, more than ten migrants were injured as they...

Review: Gus’s brings crunchy fried chicken and white bread tradition to the Warehouse District | Restaurant reviews

As the squawking over fast-food sandwiches subsides, many of us are left with a craving for good fried chicken. Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken, which opened in July in the Warehouse District, is a solid contender to satisfy that desire. The restaurant is an outpost of a brand that originated in Memphis and now has 29 locations across 13 states. While many of those are franchises, the New Orleans restaurant is corporate-owned. Gus’s tested our waters at the 2017 National Fried Chicken Festival and came away with third place (the Original Fiorella’s Cafe in Gentilly served the judges’ favorite). Gus’s recipe dates back to 1953 and a family that built the chain from a Tennessee tradition to widespread, award-winning acclaim. Gus’s New Orleans location on South Diamond Street, has a display of framed articles and accolades. Those endorsements may reassure diners who feel curious about a Tennessee recipe or disloyal to local stalwarts such as Willie Mae’s Scotch House. Gus’s helps new diners with information on its approach. Every table holds a sign with a treatise entitled “Why white bread…” and it explains the sandwich slices that accompany its chicken. The text acknowledges tha...
