first_img Watch: Bill Gates Reveals His Worst Fear in Netflix Docuseries TrailerPlex Enters The Streaming Service Wars With Cable-Style Bundle Bob’s BurgersOne animated sitcom that still smells fresh in its ninth season is Bob’s Burgers. This weekend sees the return of the Belcher family as they continue to deal with family squabbles, Tina’s boy obsessions and of course, Bob’s burger business. Honestly, I had a hard time choosing which clip from the upcoming season to include in this post. They’re just that good. It’s hard to find a comedy as sharp and funny as this on broadcast TV, and we are here for another season of hilariously obscure burger puns. Bob’s Burgers returns for its ninth season Sunday at 8:30 p.m. on Fox.Looking for more to watch this weekend? Get caught up on Star Trek: Discovery. How about head to the movies to check out Mandy or Assassination Nation. Either way, there’s plenty of great options for your viewing pleasure. Forget Peak TV. We’re living in an age of Peak Content, period. There are so many cool shows and movies and games and weird internet videos you could consume at any given moment that it’s almost overwhelming. And there are only so many free hours in a week, even if you skip sleep. So no one can blame you if you just want someone else to suggest to you what to watch on any given weekend.Why not let your friends here at Geek.com be that suggestive someone? Let Geek take the wheel! Here’s what we think is totally worth watching this weekend. And if you want to know how you can keep up with all this content, be sure to check out our stories on the best streaming TV services and streaming devices.Tracy Ullman’s ShowThe third season of Tracey Ullman’s sketch comedy show returns to HBO Friday night. When the first season premiered in 2016, it was the comedian’s first BBC show in over two decades. This season, commissioned by HBO, is comprised of repackaged segments from her ongoing topical BBC series, Tracey Ullman Breaks the News. From the looks of the trailer, the jokes skew international enough that you don’t have to be a complete Anglophile to get them. Just reasonably well-informed about the world beyond the United States. That might be asking a lot for some, but if you’re going to watch this show, chances are that’s not a problem. Ullman has a long history in the comedy world. She’s been doing killer impressions of celebrities and politicians for decades, and her 1987 variety show introduced the world to The Simpsons, which coincidentally also returns this weekend. Tracey Ullman’s Show premieres Friday at midnight on HBO. The SimpsonsThe Simpsons comes back for its 30th (!) season this weekend. The animated family sitcom will soon have been on the air for three decades. No matter what you think of the quality of these latter seasons, that’s a pretty big feat. It may never again be the brilliant, subversive show it was in its first decade, but as far as family comedies go, you can still do a lot worse. The show is still capable of producing at least a couple winners each season, and even the poorer episodes are still good for a few laughs. The scene above has a few good gags of its own. Besides, at this point, Sunday without the Simpsons would just feel wrong. The Simpsons returns Sunday at 8 p.m. on Fox. King LearWilliam Shakespeare’s best work (sorry, Hamlet) is brought into a fictional modern age in this Amazon/BBC partnership. The updated setting appears to be an England that is still ruled by a king capable of dividing the country up into thirds among his daughters. It uses Shakespeare’s dialog, though it makes some cuts to fit the two-hour runtime. Even with that, it looks like a fine adaptation of the tragedy with an absolutely stunning cast. In addition to Anthony Hopkins playing Lear, it stars Emma Thompson, Emily Watson, Florence Pugh and Jim Broadbent. Those actors know their way around a Shakespeare play. King Lear is available today on Amazon Prime. Forest of PianoMore anime comes to Netflix this weekend, this time in the form of Forest of Piano. The series centers on two boys who grow up near a forest containing an old, broken piano. One of them, completely self-taught, is the only person who can make it play. The other is the son of a famous pianist who isn’t happy about this upstart natural talent. The art looks gorgeous, and you already know the music will be the show’s centerpiece. There’s a very good chance this anime will make you cry. Forest of Piano is available today on Netflix. Stay on target Saturday Night LiveThe long-running sketch comedy staple returns for another season this weekend. Just like every other year, there will be a take from somewhere complaining that the show isn’t as funny as it used to be. And just like all those other years, there will invariably be one sketch dominating your workplace Slack chat come Monday morning. This show can still reliably pump out memorable moments of sketch comedy every season, and the current cast is seriously talented. But you already know that. This Saturday’s premiere features Adam Driver as host and Kanye West as the musical guest. Will he appear in the cold open alongside Alec Baldwin as President Trump? That can’t not happen, right? We’ll find out when Saturday Night Live returns, um, Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC. Hold the DarkThe weather is turning colder, which may be putting you in the mood for something scary. So how about some scares in cold weather? Hold the Dark is an original thriller debuting on Netflix about a wolf expert called to investigate the death of a young boy. Though it was apparently done by a pack of wolves, the more he digs into it, the stranger the case becomes. The trailer is scary enough on it’s own, which is to be expected coming from Jeremy Saulnier, who directed the excellent horror flick Green Room. Plus, it features the acting of Westworld‘s Jeffrey Wright. Hold the Dark is available today on Netflix. Hell’s KitchenI’ll admit, I have a soft spot for this particular reality show. First of all, cooking competitions are fun. It’s exhilarating watching people try (and often fail) to put together a beautiful, perfectly cooked dish in a very short amount of time. Second, there’s just something about ornery British people swearing that’s hilarious to me. This season’s gimmick is, as the preview said, Rookies vs. Veterans. We’ve seen enough seasons of this show to know how this goes. Many of the veterans will be that perfect combination of cocky and rusty that guarantees a hilarious screw-up and chewing out. Cringe at the overcooked scallops and marvel athow anyone can cook a decent Beef Wellington when Hell’s Kitchen returns for its 18th season Friday at 9 p.m. on Fox. Let us know what like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

The image, which was captured on Mars’ Vera Rubin Ridge on Jan. 15, is the last selfie the rover took in this area. The twisted ridge has been Curiosity’s home for over a year, where it provided scientists with new samples of Mars’ surface. Thank you, next@MarsCuriosity snapped another selfie and is roving to a new location on #Mars after drilling on Vera Rubin Ridge for over a year: https://t.co/eSGWfGpEXq pic.twitter.com/Rr7fplwkkZ— NASA JPL (@NASAJPL) January 28, 2019On Dec. 15, Curiosity drilled its 19th sample at a space on the Vera Rubin Ridge dubbed Rock Hall. A month later, the rover used its Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) camera, which is located on the end of its automated arm, to take 57 photos that were put together into the cool selfie.NASA’s JPL pointed out that the “Rock Hall’ drill hole is located on the lower left of the rover, and that the area was dusty due to a regional dust storm on Mars.Curiosity, which has explored the ridge since fall 2017, is ready for its next move: The rover is now traveling into the “clay bearing unit,” a space that’s located in a trough slightly south of the Vera Rubin Ridge. When it gets there, it will check out the unit’s clay minerals, which might provide key details on Mars’ ancient lakes.More on Geek.com:Meet the People Who Plan to Colonize Mars in 2032Elon Musk Tweet Hints AI Could Be the First ‘Resident’ of MarsMars’ Mile-Deep Ice Crater Is an Extraterrestrial Winter Wonderlandcenter_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

It was big for him — he does everything properly and trains well every day,” Murray told the official Brighton website.Webster knows there’s a lot of competition before he debuts Manuel R. Medina – August 24, 2019 Brighton and Hove Albion defender, Adam Webster, hasn’t debuted in the English Premier League because he knows the competition is fierce.“He’s obviously picked up a few niggles along the way, so it hasn’t been a smooth transition and that’s given him a little bit of time to see the Premier League and understand what it’s about.”“But to see him get out there on Saturday and to score the winning goal against Huddersfield was great,” he added.“Obviously I was disappointed not to play, but I soon got over that with three points. It was much needed and very important for the team.”“It’s important to have healthy competition, we’re all friends off the field and we’re all pulling in the same direction- but I think all three of us [Jurgen Locadia] offer something different,” Murray concluded.last_img read more

Pereira Mourinho would agree to join Bayern Munich PSG

first_imgBiographer Manuel Pereira believes Jose Mourinho’s time at the top of the football world isn’t over as he is yet to conquer the German and French leaguesThe Portuguese coach has enjoyed an incredible 18-year managerial career in top-flight club football following spells with Benfica, União de Leiria, FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United.In that time, Mourinho has won league titles and domestic cups across four different countries along with two Champions Leagues and the Europa League.While the four-time World Best Club Coach’s career has hit a low point recently, in light of his sacking from United last month, Pereira insists Mourinho is far from finished.“He is a very ambitious person and will not disappear into the sunset,” Pereira told Goal.“He still has a long life as a coach before him with many challenges that excite him. He has only trained in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain so far.“For example, he still lacks the Bundesliga. If Karl-Heinz Rummenigge calls him tomorrow and offers him to train Bayern, Mourinho would agree for sure.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“Also PSG would certainly be a delightful task for him.”Another possibility for Mourinho is taking charge of the Portugal national team, which would be less stressful.Although Pereria believes a lot can happen between now and this summer at Real Madrid, who he believes Mourinho could still rejoin.“In case he does not find a club in the summer, I can imagine that he will take over the Portuguese national team,” Pereria said. “That would mean less stress for him.“He could thereby devote himself more to his private life, which has suffered a lot in Manchester.“He did not have a real home there, but spent most nights in the hotel or flew to London to be with his family.“But a lot can happen by summer. Especially at Real Madrid.”last_img read more

EFFORT AT TRANSPARENCY IN TCI SCHOLARSHIP PROCESS

This effort at greater transparency is likely in response for the call by residents to know more about the efforts of the Secretariat… the board is often accused of ‘curry favor.’ On the agenda at the awareness meetings were requirements for qualification, the explanatory note to the application form for 2015, institutions of higher learning recommended for next year, priority areas for 2015, accuracy in filling out the application and who qualifies as a Belonger and documents to support. There will be more meetings according to the Secretariat which reported that it felt this round of sessions went very well. During House of assembly on Monday, Premier Rufus Ewing announced that his administration is increasing the budget allocation for scholarships next fiscal year.

This was explained today in a media statement that a team of special investigators are in country and the goal is for them to take another and a more expert look at some of the homicides committed within the islands. “The Commissioner alerted the Council to the arrival of an investigative group of senior police, who would be in TCI for twelve weeks to review a number of murder cases.” The special team is being funded by TCIG. Also being reviewed is the illegal landings and troubles with poachers. The Council made up of the Governor, the Premier, the Border Control Minister, the Attorney General and the Police Commissioner notes that the total number of arrivals have been more limited in recent months, and were also considerably fewer in individual vessels. Still, it was explained that the British Ambassador to the Dominican Republic was arranging for a visit by the Governor and Minister of Border Control to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Santo Domingo to discuss illegal fishing and maritime issues.
