PRINCE HARRY SAYS HE WARNED TWITTER CEO OF THE CAPITOL HILL VIOLENCE

Prince Harry of Britain has said that he warned the Chief Executive of Twitter ahead of the Capitol Hill Riots on January 6th this year. He said that the social media platform was being used to organise, and stage the political unrest in the capital, Washington DC. While speaking on a virtual panel that dealt with misinformation in California, Harry said he made his concerns known to the Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. 

 

“Jack and I were emailing each other prior to January 6 where I warned him that his platform was allowing a coup to be staged,” the British prince said.  “That email was sent the day before and then it happened and I haven’t heard from him since,” he added. Twitter has not yet made a statement regarding the claim. 

 

While speaking at the event, he accused Facebook of misleading billions of people with misinformation and fake news about Covid-19 and Climate Change. He also called out Youtube for spreading videos that were having misinformation about the virus. “And worse, they came to the users via the recommendation tool within YouTube’s own algorithm versus anything that the user was actually searching for….. It shows really that it can be stopped but also they didn’t want to stop it because it affects their bottom line,” he said.

 THINKALAZHCHA NISHCHAYAM | MALAYALAM CINEMA REVIEW |

SATIRE DRIVEN, NON-MELODRAMATIC, FOCUSED, AND METICULOUSLY SCRIPTED; THIS MOVIE IS A WINNER THROUGH AND THROUGH!

How can one dislike a film that entertains throughout? In english, this movie title means ‘The engagement is on monday’.  There is no surprise in the plot line; all of it is revealed in the title.  The story is about the making of an engagement and the joys and troubles involved.  Senna Hegde pulls off a regular story with exceptional craft. The highlight of the film is its climax.  The climax offers no pomp and show, no tearful departures, no melodramatic breakdowns, no revolutions, no rebellions, no glamour, not even the promised engagement.This film is a must watch not because it is extraordinary, but because it is very ordinary, and the brilliance is entirely in the balance the filmmaker maintained throughout.

KURUP|MALAYALAM MOVIE| REVIEW|
KURUP, THE MOVIE; DULQUER’S ATTEMPT TO CONQUER CINEMASCOPE FILMMAKING LEAVES AUDIENCES EMOTIONLESS

THIS PERIOD MOVIE COMES WITH COMPLETE GRANDEUR; GRAND SETS, STYLE, A GOOD CAST, LEAVES NO STONE UNTURNED IN PRODUCTION, BUT FAILS IN ITS EDITING AND COMPOSITION. DQ DOES NOT BECOME KURUP, KURUP BECOMES DQ. 

Dulquer remains Dulquer, we recognize him and his methods in all his movies and he repeats himself once again.  The actor lacks gravitas in his dialogue delivery and intonation.  Can style and glamour make up for lack of method acting in a role like this?  Did we expect more?
