Gone with the wind Ekta Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut not friends anymore

first_imgAfter what happened at the song launch of Judgemental Hai Kya between Kangana Ranaut and a journalist, it was expected that things might not remain smooth between Kangana and the film’s producer Ekta Kapoor. While Ekta had said that Kangana and she would team up again, it seems far from happening anytime soon.Ekta Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut have had a fall-out and it’s not going to be mended anytime soon. “Ekta is from the industry and knows how it works. She has always made it a point to be polite and friendly with the media and with the industry. Kangana’s needless outburst did affect the film and Ekta is miffed about that,” says a Deccan Chronicle report.Though the film has been liked by the critics, it failed to bring a huge crowd to the theatres. And Ekta feels the film couldn’t reach the success it destined to reach at. Even at the success bash of the film, Ekta Kapoor was nowhere to be seen.At the song launch of Judgemental Hai Kya, while Kangana had accused a journalist of maligning her and launching a smear campaign against her. “Justin, tum toh humare dushman ban gaye ho yaar….badi gandi batein likhte ho. Tum kitna ganda sochte ho! Tum itni gandi soch rakhte ho. You are bashing my film Manikarnika. Have I made a mistake in making that film? You are calling me a jingoistic woman who is making a film on nationalism. Is it a mistake to make such a film?” Kangana had said. The journalist had lashed back at Ranaut for levelling fake accusations on him saying, “This is not the right way to intimidate a journalist just because you are at such a powerful position.” The event got so heated up that the makers had to issue a written apology towards the team.Following which The Entertainment Journalists’ Guild of India had decided to boycott Kangana and had written, “We, as a guild, have collectively decided to boycott Ms Ranaut and not give her any media coverage. Rest assured, we will not let this matter affect ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’ in any manner and will be supportive of your film and other cast members, barring Ms Ranaut.”From Akshay Kumar to Rishi Kapoor, many celebs spoke up about the incident. Akshay Kumar had said, “Hame aapki bohot zarurat hai (We all need you). I believe that we can reach out to people and express our opinions through the media. I hope this misunderstanding gets solved. I am not too clued in into this matter because I was in London. It is unfortunate, but I hope everything gets solved.”last_img read more

Researchers create most tangled interlocked molecule ever

Credit: Nature Chemistry (2018). DOI: 10.1038/s41557-018-0124-6 Chemistry researchers create self-tying knotted molecules in the lab More information: Liang Zhang et al. Stereoselective synthesis of a composite knot with nine crossings, Nature Chemistry (2018). DOI: 10.1038/s41557-018-0124-6AbstractThe simultaneous synthesis of a molecular nine-crossing composite knot that contains three trefoil tangles of the same handedness and a 937973 link (a type of cyclic [3]catenane topologically constrained to always have at least three twists within the links) is reported. Both compounds contain high degrees of topological writhe (w = 9), a structural feature of supercoiled DNA. The entwined products are generated from the cyclization of a hexameric Fe(II) circular helicate by ring-closing olefin metathesis, with the mixture of topological isomers formed as a result of different ligand connectivity patterns. The metal-coordinated composite knot was isolated by crystallization, the topology unambiguously proven by tandem mass spectrometry, with X-ray crystallography confirming that the 324-atom loop crosses itself nine times with matching handedness (all Δ or all Λ) at every metal centre within each molecule. Controlling the connectivity of the ligand end groups on circular metal helicate scaffolds provides an effective synthetic strategy for the stereoselective synthesis of composite knots and other complex molecular topologies. Tying molecules into knots is a relatively new field—scientists have only been doing it for a decade. It is also unique because thus far there are very few if any practical applications for most such knots. Still, some chemists find the work intriguing, so they continue to create new and ever more complicated knots. In this new effort, the team at UM has built on prior work that led to the creation of molecules shaped like the Star of David and one that was deemed by Guinness as the world’s tightest—by creating one in the shape of a three-trefoil tangle.While the name might sound complicated, the three-trefoil tangle is actually quite simple—creating one with a shoelace, for example, can be done by a child. But using a single 324 atom molecular strand molecule to do it takes some work. The group accomplished this feat by starting with six strands, each with an alkene group at its tips—and groups of three bipyridyls in the middle. They then manipulated the ligands to wrap around six iron ions to hold them in place. They finished by using a catalyst to connect the alkenes with a metathesis reaction to remove the iron. The result was a knot with nine crossings. As part of their work, the researchers also created a granny knot by connecting three figure-eight knots together.The researchers acknowledge that neither of their knots has any practical use at this time, but note that historically, new kinds of knots have been created to suit particular demands. Rock climbers, for example, use knots that are very different from sailors. This suggests that now that chemists know that knots can be made, they might find applications that can benefit from them. They also suggest that learning how to tie molecules in knots can help scientists understand how natural ones occur, such as those in viruses.

Canal is using Telestreams Vantage workflow auto

first_imgCanal+ is using Telestream’s Vantage workflow automation platform running on Lightspeed Servers with Pipeline encoding appliances for deployment of a new VOD catch-up service.The opportunity to expand services at Canal+ arose in 2012 when Canal+’s two new free-to-air channels became available on the French DTT platform, with regulatory approval in September, a contract signed in October, and an on-air date before the end of the year.“We needed to generate four different H.264 outputs, plus four HLS files for Apple devices and others, and an MPEG-2 transport stream,” said Charles Lesoil, project manager at Canal+. “We needed to strip out commercial breaks for the online version, do some content replacement where needed for rights management, and we wanted to insert logos and PG ratings where required.”“This is an excellent example of the power and speed that Vantage offers,” said Paul Turner, VP of enterprise product management at Telestream. “Vantage provides a wide range of content production functionality for Canal+ such as logo insertion, trimming, and resizing as an inherent part of the transcoding processes. In addition, Canal+ utilized Vantage system intelligence to develop workflows using advanced logic based on the metadata to reduce the number of different workflows for simplicity and reliability.”Telestream is exhibiting at IBC on stand 7.C12last_img read more
