Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryEarlier this week, news broke that Rogue One was facing alarming-sounding reshoots following poor testing screenings—news which was later expounded on with further reports that painted the reshoots in a far less worrying light, indicating that they were more to improve the film even further following the success of The Force Awakens and make it more tonally in line with what s expected from a Star Wars film.According to the site, around 40% of the film will be reshot over the period of eight weeks, which director Gareth Edwards will film with script writer Christopher McQuarrie to better ensure the duo are on the same page—McQuarrie s draft of the script is allegedly considered more ideal than the cut Edwards submitted, but that difference was largely due to the fact that the script was constantly being revised as the film was shot, leading to an uneven tone.However, since Making Star Wars report hit, McQuarrie issued a statement to /Film, stating that he is not involved with the reshoots at all.Captain MarvelFollowing the recent reports about Brie Larson being eyed for the role of Carol Danvers, The Hollywood Reporter also contends that Niki Caro and Jennifer Kent are the top contenders to direct the film.LegionShow writer Noah Hawley talks about the approach he s taking with the show and lead character David Haller s mental state:The diagnosis that he has when we meet him is schizophrenic.he hears voices, and he sees things that are maybe real or aren t real, and he s not sure.

The final design for Tesla's Model 3 will be complete in just a few weeks, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk said during Vox Media's Code Conference on Wednesday.While the design will be complete in just a few weeks, the company will likely not show off the final product to the public until much later this year.The Model 3 is slated to go into production by the end of 2017, a deadline that some say is ambitious considering the company's past history of delays."We want to do the opposite of what we did with the X, which is make something that is a lot simpler, but still a car that people will love, and every design decision is factoring in the manufacturability," he said.Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.More from Tech Insider:Elon Musk wants to land humans on Mars within 9 yearsThe MacArthur Foundation is giving away $100 million for one great ideaElon Musk said he doesn't see Google as a competitor in the driverless car raceHere's how Draco Malfoy's family looks 9 years after the 'Harry Potter' booksWhat it's like inside the only permanent undersea research lab in the worldNOW WATCH: Here s what it s like to drive the Tesla Model X — 'the best car ever according to Elon MuskLoading video...

Making a sandwich isn t usually something that requires a tutorial, but after watching Bon Appetit s guide to constructing the perfect hero, you might learn a few tips to take away for all of your sandwich creations.Bon Appetit s editor in chief, Adam Rapoport, starts with the bread and walks you through the best way to construct a hero—at least, in his opinion, and he acknowledges that people will have different ones specifically his thoughts on mayo, which I personally agree with.Use a good, simple shredded iceberg lettuce—it adds texture and crunch without being heavy.Dress your salad—a little olive oil and vinaigrette adds flavor to that otherwise flavorless iceberg.Of course, these rules aren t universal for every type of sandwich—iceberg, for example, is by no means a requirement for every sandwich, or don t want that dressed crunch in the center of yours.That said, if you re making a nice, tall hero like the one in the video, they re good tips to follow.

Game director Harvey Smith told OXM its playtesters are already using the game s new abilities in ways that hadn t been predicted.It s a sign, he claimed, that the sequel will support the same creative problem-solving — and inspire the same level of adoration from fans — as the original.Long after the game s release, players were still playing with the systems related to protagonist Corvo s powers, finding new and increasingly inventive ways to stalk and dispatch enemies.Here s an interesting example:What took players weeks and months with the original is already happening with Dishonored 2 before the game has seen the light of day.Rather than distracting, then killing the guards, the tester linked the enemies to her clone, then assassinated it.It s just one of those systemic game mechanic interactions that clever, creative players figure out as they start to experiment.

Rents are falling in two of the most expensive US markets.New York City and San Francisco are finally seeing declines in the cost of rent, according to the housing provider Equity Residential.The firm lowered its guidance for its revenue growth because of the softening in the two markets."The revision is being driven by continued weakness in its New York portfolio and recent underperformance in the company's San Francisco portfolio," a release from Equity Residential said."While occupancies and renewal rates in these markets continue to perform in line with the company's expectations, new lease rates are not meeting original projections due to new rental apartment supply."While the rest of the country is running significantly short on housing supply, Equity Residential is seeing too many apartments in two cities that have been a huge focus of the housing market in the past few years.The massive amount of building in these metro areas was also pointed out by Michelle Meyer, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, in a recent note."The dramatic increase in the supply of housing seems to have hit a tipping point, as Meyer estimated that the average rent for both of these markets will slide slightly over the next year.Following the announcement by Equity, its stock is trading down just over 4.3% for the day at $66.21 a share.NOW WATCH: 7 inventors who were killed by their own inventionsLoading video...

Jagadish Shukla, Professor, Climate Dynamics, George Mason University George Mason University Newly released internal e-mails show George Mason University climate professors plotting a petition calling on government to prosecute skeptics of global warming using RICO laws designed to go after the mob.They got 20 scientists to sign theirpetition and sent it to government officials before withdrawing in the face of controversy.The new emails show GMU professors Jagadish Shukla and Edward Maibach discussing everything from how to craft their petition to appeal to conservatives, to getting warnings from others that the petition would go over poorly, to evading media questions.Shukla had first suggested the letter, saying he had once thought he would be most effective sticking to climate science, but that I have changed my mind… I have decided to get fully engaged in… the larger issues of inequality and social justice.I m hoping you will highlight any language that screams liberal drivel and suggest ways of incorporating language that resonate s with conservative values, such as accountability.The petition was soon pulled from Shukla s group s website, and Shukla explained that while we stand by our request for investigations, he removed the petition because it had been misinterpreted by some and it had needlessly complicated the planned dissolution of his organization, "The Institute for Global Environment and Society."

Amazon hasn't made a wearable device yet, but CEO Jeff Bezos refused to rule it out in a recent interview.Speaking at the Code Conference recently, Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos refused to comment on future Amazon devices.Presumably geared around parting you from your money.Browsing through the company's vast online store on a 1.5-inch smartwatch display sounds like some version of hell.With Amazon's Alexa voice-activated assistant doing great business for the company over on its Echo speaker, we have to believe that an Amazon smartwatch would utilise the same tool.It's all just speculation at present, of course.
