Disney will launch its Disney+ streaming service later this year, offering subscribers a vast library of existing and original content.Among the original content planned for Disney+ are two live-action Star Wars shows, including one called The Mandalorian, and now Disney is teasing plans for a third series set in the same universe.The content would fill the gap until the arrival of the next Star Wars movie planned for 2022.Thus far, Star Wars fans have been expecting two live-action series to follow the recent spat of movies: the aforementioned The Mandalorian set after the fall of the empire, as well as another live-action series that will be set before the events we saw in the movie Rogue One.Both shows will be available to stream exclusively through the Disney+ service.The Mandalorian will be available to stream when Disney+ goes live in mid-November; the Rogue One series won’t arrive until 2021, around one year before the next batch of Star Wars movies will kick off.

For over 20 years now, the Seattle Mariners have provided a little extra entertainment for their fans in the form of its seasonal ad campaign that stars their most popular players.Working with their longtime agency of record Copacino + Fujikado, the Mariners typically produce four to five ads that infuses baseball with some kind of non-baseball element—a speedster needing a pit stop or a left-handed pitcher taking up arts and crafts.The agency will then produce about 100 different scripts for the ball club, but the shop narrows it down to the 25 to 30 best and presents them to the Mariners’ marketing team on a December day that Greene calls one of his favorite days of the year.Once the team and the agency have decided which spots they want to film, they typically only have a couple days in Arizona during spring training to shoot the ads with production company Blue Goose Productions.In the spots, some of the team’s biggest stars share the spotlight as minor leaguers sneak into the background of the commercials as extras.In one spot this year, Seattle pays homage to the crafty lefty—a baseball term for left-handed pitchers who retire opponents using off-speed pitches instead of relying on a blazing fastball like Mariner great Randy Johnson.

The disk was found underwater at the Sodré shipwreck site, and contained iconic Portuguese imagery still found on the flag of Portugal.Laser imagery from scientists at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom has now revealed scale markers along the disk’s edges, confirming that it was in fact an early navigational tool.Astrolabes were instruments used by mariners beginning in the late 15th century to determine latitude, which they did by pointing the disk at the Sun and reading the markings on its sides.The ships were part of a subfleet of the Portuguese armada on a trip to India led by Vasco da Gama in 1502-1503, commanded by da Gama’s uncles Vicente and Brás Sodré.They’d anchored by Al Hallaniyah to find shelter from the seasonal monsoon winds—but a particularly strong wind sunk the ship, killing many of its sailors and Vicente Sodré.(You can read more about the history of the wreck in the paper, “An Early Portuguese Mariner’s Astrolabe from the Sodré Wreck‐site, Al Hallaniyah, Oman,” published in the International Journal of Nautical Archaeology.)

Flat Holm island holm to foolish trio for one long, cold morningThe salty spray, the sunlight sparkling off the bay... but three foolhardy Russian sailors anchored near Minehead, southwest England, clearly fancied a change of scenery – to their misfortune.The trio were employed aboard the Dutch-registered cargo vessel Alana Evita moored just over 3km (2 miles) off the coast of the Somerset town, The Telegraph reported.Slinking off the ship in a 13ft (4m) inflatable dingy at 3:45am on Wednesday (20 March), the salty seadogs managed to cross 12km (8 miles) of the Bristol Channel to Barry in Wales, brought to the fore of the national consciousness by the hit sitcom Gavin & Stacey – and now the "most thriving housing market" in Britain, according to Rightmove.But they weren't there to check out the estate agents, instead opting for one of Russia's favourite pastimes and hitting the seaside town's watering holes.Suitably soused, the gang began the journey back across the channel to their coaster, which went exactly as well as you can imagine.

Guinness World Records have independently certified an astrolabe excavated from the wreck site of a Portuguese Armada Ship that was part of Vasco da Gama's second voyage to India in 1502-1503 as the oldest in the world, and have separately certified a ship's bell (dated 1498) recovered from the same wreck site also as the oldest in the world.The scientific process of verifying the disc as an astrolabe by laser imaging is described in a paper published today by Mearns and Jason Warnett and Mark Williams of WMG at the University of Warwick in the International Journal of Nautical Archaeology.The Sodré astrolabe has made it into the Guinness Book of world records is believed to have been made between 1496 and 1501 and is unique in comparison to all other mariner's astrolabes.Mariner's Astrolabes were used for navigating at sea by early explorers, most notably the Portuguese and Spanish.The thin 175 mm diameter disk weighing 344 grams was analysed by a team from WMG who travelled to Muscat, Oman in November 2016 to collect laser scans of a selection of the most important artefacts recovered from the wreck site.Analysis of the results revealed a series of 18 scale marks spaced at uniform intervals along the limb of the disk.
Billionaires can afford to make lavish purchases beyond most people's means, varying from entire islands to trips to space to sports teams.Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates has said his private jet is his "guilty pleasure" and his "big splurge."Gates reportedly owns a Bombardier BD-700 Global Express, a plane that can sit up to 19 people and costs an estimated $40 million.In addition to owning a 233-foot yacht, Simonyi also owns a Dassault Falcon jet.The late Steve Jobs once owned a Gulfstream V that seats up to 15 people.Jobs' plane didn't leave the Apple family, however.

Sometimes, a crazy type of technology comes along that you just know is going to change everything — to usher in a completely new style of productivity and revolutionize the very way we work, play, and sing our silly ol' sailor songs.I hate to be the curmudgeonly old grouch sipping cream soda on the corner (that's what curmudgeonly old grouches do, isn't it?But like so many mobile tech innovations before it (many of them by Samsung, for that matter), we have to step back and ask ourselves if it's innovation for the sake of innovation — a mere parlor trick to create buzz and generate excitement about a smartphone at a time when we're all hanging onto phones for longer than ever — or if it's innovation with a purpose, with an actual real-world human benefit (beyond just the opportunity to open our wallets) in mind.[Get fresh tips and insight in your inbox every Friday with JR's Android Intelligence newsletter.It provides all the advantages of a tablet with all the portability of a phone, gosh darn it!Heck, even the on-stage demos of the Fold, where the phone was held up and visible, were curiously short and limited.
If you can answer these questions, then you might be able to register a full membership on one of China’s most popular video platforms.Its main focus is ACG – which stands for anime, comics, and games – and is known for its trove of (mostly illegally acquired) content and for bullet chat, a distinctive type of user comments that fly over the screen.Bilibili is the only community in China that doesn’t allow anyone to become a full member freely: you have to either pass the test or be invited by an existing full member.In comparison, the gaokao – China’s notoriously difficult national college entrance exam – drew just under 9 million high schoolers last year.Entering the video platform’s exclusive club is by no means an easy feat, despite help from search engines.“I remember they were asking about Java and C++ and some very detailed questions about Chinese history,” said Lucy Lu, a Bilibili user who passed the exam several years ago.

We were promised flying cars but, as it turns out, flying boats were easier to build.SeaBubbles, a “flying” boat startup that uses electric power instead of gas, hit Miami this weekend to show off one of its five prototype boats — or six, if you count an early, windowless white boat they’ve lovingly dubbed the “soapdish.” This innovative boat design combines technology from nautical industries, aviation, and intelligent software to raise the hull of the boat out of the water using foils, which helps it to consume less energy by allowing it to travel on rougher waters with reduced drag, while also keeping the passenger cabin relatively comfortable.Founded only three years ago in Paris, the idea for SeaBubbles was dreamed up by Alain Thébault, a sailor who previously designed and piloted the Hydroptère, an experimental hydrofoil trimaran, using a similar system that lifts the boat up in order to reduce drag.Meanwhile, SeaBubbles co-founder, Anders Bringdal, is a four-times windsurf world champion, who also set a windsurfing world record, at 51.45 knots.Together, the two have envisioned SeaBubbles as a way for cities to reduce traffic congestion and help the environment by taking advantage of the area’s waterways to move people around in fast water taxis.“Every city has waterways — ones that are fairly unused.

On a mission to help the Navy reduce this problem is Kurt Yankaskas, who has managed the Office of Naval Research's (ONR) NIHL program for the past 10 years.His efforts were recognized last week when he received the 2019 Safe-in-Sound Excellence in Hearing Loss Prevention Award from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, in partnership with the National Hearing Conservation Association and the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation."High risk of exposure to prolonged noise can produce auditory injuries and impairments, which can compromise safety, quality of life and effectiveness of communication."It's that last impairment--the effectiveness of communication--that Yankaskas is particularly concerned with when it comes to warfighters, because hearing and understanding verbal commands are absolutely critical to keeping everyone safe.The challenge for those who serve on Navy vessels or in naval shipyards is that noise surrounds them 24 hours a day, with no real audiological rest (quiet time).Many machinery/work spaces can reach decibels outside of safety regulations--anything above 85 decibels (typical of a dishwasher, garbage disposal or other small kitchen appliance)--for prolonged periods of time.
Stonehenge is perhaps the most famous rock structure in the world and the mystery surrounding its formation has stumped humanity for generations.Now, a new study suggests that it, along with other rock structures across Europe, may have been influenced by prehistoric sailors., theorizes that these megalith structures have been around for nearly 7,000 years and may have originated in northwestern France."The result presented here, based on analyses of 2,410 radiocarbon dates and highly precise chronologies for megalithic sites and related contexts, suggests maritime mobility and intercultural exchange," the study's abstract reads."We argue for the transfer of the megalithic concept over sea routes emanating from northwest France, and for advanced maritime technology and seafaring in the megalithic Age."The world famous stone circle was built around 2,500 B.C.
New images reveal the extent of damage to the catamaran of a British sailor who killed his wife on their honeymoon.Lewis Bennett admitted manslaughter last year following American Isabella Hellmann’s disappearance at sea in 2017 during a tour of the Caribbean.The experienced sailor, originally from Poole, Dorset, was found alone off the coast of Cuba near his overturned vessel by the US Coastguard, and told rescuers he “did not know” what had happened to his 41-year-old wife.The newlyweds had started their expedition in St Maarten, before sailing the catamaran to Puerto Rico and Cuba.The incident happened on the return to their home in Delray Beach, Florida.The pictures, taken after Bennett, 41, was rescued and during a search for Hellmann, appear to show damage was inflicted to the craft’s hull from the inside, according to CBS12.

The remains of SM UC-61, a World War I German minelaying submarine c(also known as a U-boat) is resurfacing on the coast of Wissant near Calais over a century after it was abandoned and scuttled by its 26-sailor crew before they surrendered to the French, the BBC reported on Saturday.According to the BBC, the ship was largely buried in sand by the 1930s, though it tends to make an appearance every few years for a brief period of time:Since December, two sections of the submarine have been visible at low tide about 330ft (100m) from the dunes.“The wreck is visible briefly every two to three years, depending on the tides and the wind that leads to sand movements, but a good gust of wind and the wreck will disappear again,” said Mayor of Wissant Bernard Bracq.A local tour guide, Vincent Schmitt, told the BBC that the wreck is usually “mostly silted and therefore invisible,” but this is the first time he could recall that so much of it has come to the top.The submarine had departed from the port of Zeebrugge in Belgium and met its end while attempting to lay mines near Boulogne-sur-Mer and Le Havre, per the BBC.

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) today unsealed indictments against a pair of Chinese agents charged with hacking US computer systems from a period spanning 2006 – 2018.The FBI and DOJ have identified the defendants as Zhu Hua and Zhang Shilong, alleged members of a Chinese state-sponsored hacking group.According to the unsealed documents:Over the course of the Technology Theft Campaign, the defendants and their coconspirators successfully obtained unauthorized access to at least approximately 90 computers belonging to, among others, commercial and defense technology companies and US Government agencies located in at least 12 states, and stole hundreds of gigabytes of sensitive data and information from their computer systems …The FBI, DOJ, and most media outlets are characterizing the campaign as an intellectual property-theft (IPT) issue, alleging the Chinese agents’ intent was to steal technology plans.According to the FBI’s wanted poster for the group, known as Advanced Persistent Threat 10 (APT 10), or Cloudhopper, the group’s effort was massive:

Självseglande drones are the latest in research at sea.Now have a Swedish variant tested in the harsh situation in the Kattegat.Researchers at the Swedish university of agricultural sciences (SLU) launched a craft to the west of Falkenberg on 3 december and Aqua Sailor then sailed around on their own for 12 december.the Goal was to collect information on two important winter feeding grounds for seabirds.the Drone is equipped with a depth sounder that measured the amount of fish and have also collected data on salinity and temperature."this gives us a new tool for the collection of data that complement studies done with manned ships.
I was welcomed aboard by the ship's captain, Commander Phil Harper, a veteran sailor with 28 years of Royal Navy service.While the majority of the sea looks like this...... underneath, it can be just as dramatic as the Grand Canyon:"It needs constant updating," said Cdr Harper, referring to the maritime charts that tell seafarers where they are and how deep the water is underneath their ships.Much like the way a hiker will have a map of the area he intends to walk over, complete with contour lines and points of interest marked on the map, seafarers also need similar maps, or charts.Modern technology hasn't advanced too far beyond the age-old concept of sending a ship and her crew out to survey a particular part of the sea.
