  • Star Trek's Jeri Ryan reaaaaally wants a transporter - CNET

  • As part of our coverage of Star Trek's 50th anniversary, I talked with a dozen cast members from across the franchise about everything from Star Trek's inclusive message to how it feels to be a sex symbol to nerds. Jeri Ryan didn't want the role at first. The then up-and-comer was trying to kickstart her career after eaing a theater degree and winning the Miss Illinois beauty pageant (she later competed in Miss America, coming in fourth place). "I wasn't remotely interested in science fiction," Ryan said of her pre-Star Trek days. Sure, she'd watched some episodes of the original series. But she'd also heard the shows had a history of stymieing some actor's careers. Then Ryan read about her character, Seven of Nine, a human kidnapped as a young girl by a cybeetic race known as the Borg. She then spends decades participating in the atrocious "assimilation" of other species before she's snatched back by the Voyager crew.

  • As Olympic stars vie for medals, tech battles Zika in Rio - CNET

  • Athletes can't just focus on sticking the perfect landing or diving with flawless form at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. They'll also have to worry about Zika. Fortunately, it's not just athletes converging in Brazil. One organization is using mapping technology to track the spread of the infectious disease. Another is giving away smart thermometers to keep tabs on symptoms that might flare up. The World Health Organization launched a Zika app to provide information about the disease. After the Olympics, IBM will provide local authorities with ways to track weather, social media data and travel pattes. It's just the latest example where technology plays an increasingly critical role in the world of health care. The 2016 Olympic Games, a 17-day event that kicks off Friday night, provide a high-profile stage for tech to shine as a possible way to curb Zika, which has shown a scary tendency to move around. Prior to 2015, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands reported cases of Zika, and the virus has now spread to countries in South and Central America, including Brazil, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Last week, Florida Gov. Rick Scott confirmed the first cases of Zika transmitted locally by mosquitoes in the US.Pass the bug spray. Getty Images As many as 500,000 people, including 200,000 Americans, will travel to Rio for the quadrennial summer games. Experts worry about pregnant women who will attend as well as those who may conceive in the next couple of years. In both cases, there's a risk that Zika can spread to the fetus. While adults rarely exhibit symptoms, children may develop microcephaly in utero, a condition that affects the child's head size and can lead to seizures, developmental delays and other disastrous effects. Nearly 200 health experts penned an open letter to the World Health Organization suggesting that the games b, ...ادامه مطلب

  • ​'Watchmen' hilariously lambasted in Honest Trailers parody video - CNET

  • [embedded content] When beloved graphic novel "Watchmen" was reimagined as a movie directed by Zack Snyder, some irate fans, including "Watchmen" comics creator Alan Moore, criticized the movie's depiction of the troubled superheroes. Leave it to Honest Trailers -- a YouTube series from Screen Junkies that features a classic movie-trailer voice-over but with a narrator who makes fun of films -- to lay down some blunt opinions about the 2009 film. In a video posted Tuesday, Honest Trailers points out that the Watchmen may have looked pretty, but the movie tried way too hard to squeeze in every plotline from the comics. "Stare in awe as Snyder's gorgeous shots carry you through an overstuffed plot, where a dense 13-chapter series is crammed into a single movie full of so many story threads it feels like marathoning an entire season of 'Lost' -- at the same time," the Honest Trailers narrator says. Honest Trailers also offers a rather accurate description of the main anti-hero character, Rorschach. "Experience Jackie Earle Haley's spot-on performance as a smelly hobo who hates hands," the narrator says. This brutal review makes even more sense when you realize how often Snyder uses the same cinematic tropes in all of his movies, from "Watchmen" all the way to his most recent DC Comics film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." After all, if Synder plans on always using rain, Jesus allegories, sex, graphic violence, destruction of a major city and apocalyptic dream sequences, Honest Trailers will be there to offer cutting commentary.Let's block ads! بخوانید, ...ادامه مطلب

  • Businesses can't Tweet #TeamUSA or #Rio2016 because reasons - CNET

  • Enlarge ImageIf you're a business, you can only show so much of your Olympic pride. DANIEL SANNUM LAUTEN/AFP/Getty Images It's all fun and good until someone tweets the wrong thing.When the Olympics start Friday, social media is likely to light up with pride for sports, countries and various teams as they come together in Rio to compete for the next few weeks. But your local plumber will have to sit it out.Businesses have long been expected to keep their Olympic excitement to a minimum, as they can't use the famous five rings or other symbols and phrases from the games, since they're all trademarked. The conce is that the organizations around the Olympics don't want corporate sponsorships to lose value -- imagine the horror if people watching the 100m sprint started thinking about Pepsi instead of a Coke.But this Olympics is happening at a time when a billion people are using Facebook on their mobile device every day. Social media has become so pervasive that when you add in Snapchat and Twitter, the combined populations of people using these services is larger than any country on Earth.So of course, in addition to the rules you can't use the Olympics' trademarked words or phrases, AdWeek notes businesses also can't use certain hashtags, including #TeamUSA or #Rio2016.Never mind Twitter can barely keep people from sending the racist and misogynist messages to the female stars of the latest Ghostbusters movie. Now it'll have to police Olympic hashtags too.Facebook, Twitter and the Olympic organizers didn't respond to requests for comment."Experts' advice to non-sponsor businesses?

  • New 'Lego Batman Movie' trailer reveals Robin's hilarious origins - CNET

  • DC Comics fans all know how well Batman and Robin worked as a team in their previous comics, films and TV shows, but in the world of Lego anything can happen. In the new "Lego Batman Movie" trailer, which debuted at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, fans got another glimpse inside the Caped Crusader's Batcave, Batcomputer, well... Bat everything. But most importantly, the new footage shows more of the relationship between Batman and his crime-fighting ward, Dick Grayson -- best known as Robin. "Lego Batman Movie" focuses on Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, played by Will Aett who will be reprising his role from "The Lego Movie." The movie starts with Batman depending mostly on his butler Alfred (voiced by Ralph Fiennes). But the introduction of Dick Grayson/Robin (voiced by Michael Cera) and Barbara Gordon/Batgirl (voiced by Rosario Dawson) tus his super-secret double life as a crime fighter upside down.The new trailer footage shows Batman taking a rather annoying Robin under his wing, but also reveals how Robin ended up with a red, green and yellow costume in the first place and why the Batmobile could use some seat belts. The upcoming "Lego Batman Movie" is written by Seth Grahame-Smith, directed by Chris McKay and also stars actor Zach Galifianakis and singer Mariah Carey. The animated movie opens in theaters on February 10, 2017.Let's block ads! بخوانید, ...ادامه مطلب

  • What do we say to the god of death? Bring Syrio back to 'Game of Thrones' - CNET

  • Some fans are still holding out hope that Syrio (Miltos Yerolemou) will retu to "Game of Thrones." HBO The "Game of Thrones" season finale satisfied many fans by apparently confirming the Jon Snow parenting theory (R+L=J). That's nice and all, but the show ignored completely my favorite hope -- that Arya's sword-fighting teacher, the brave and eteally quotable Syrio Forel, somehow still lives.OK, he probably doesn't. When last we saw him, he was battling Meryn Trant with nothing but a broken wooden sword. And although sharp-eyed fans hoped this curly-headed shape seen in a recent episode was Syrio, the show ended season 6 with absolutely no sign of him. Probably somewhere an extra with a perm is freeze-framing his one big scene and bragging to his friends about all the confusion he caused.But HBO, if you're listening, you'd have no trouble casting a retu. Greek actor Miltos Yerolemou told Digital Spy that he and his wooden sword would be on the next dragon to Westeros if asked to come back."Of course I would want to retu to 'Game of Thrones,'" Yerolemou said. "People always ask me, 'Did (Syrio) really die?' and the thing is you don't know."Like viewers, Yerolemou is in the dark about whether Syrio met up with the god of death, or if the First Sword of Braavos told him, "Not today.""I don't actually know [whether Syrio died or not] but even if I did, I wouldn't tell you!" he said in the interview published Monday. "And that's part of the fun of it -- you never know."Syrio isn't the only "Game of Thrones' character who's pulled a Chuck Cunningham. ("Happy Days" fans will remember Richie, played by Ron Howard, once had an older brother on that 1970s sitcom. Chuck one day went upstairs with a basketball and was written off the show.)Arya's pal Gendry is also AWOL from the plot. The illegitimate son of Robert Baratheon was last seen rowing away from Dragonstone, and hasn't been heard from, ...ادامه مطلب

  • Hilarious 'Chewbacca Mom' shows serious side, to mixed reviews - CNET

  • She's not laughing anymore. Video Screenshot by CNET Candace Payne became inteet-famous for a video capturing her infectious and eaest bout of laughter in a Chewbacca mask. Now "Chewbacca Mom" is back with a more serious and somber viral video that also has some laughing, but this time it's at her rather than with her. Payne's unassuming Facebook Live video back in May launched her on that particularly meteoric and fleeting rise to fame that only the viral nature of the inteet can provide. She's been spotted on "Good Moing America" and riding in a minivan with James Corden and J.J. Abrams, among many other appearances.But inteet fame is fickle. On Saturday, Payne went on Facebook Live to respond to the murder of five police officers at a Dallas march, protesting police brutality with a characteristically eaest and poignant rendition of Michael Jackson's "Heal the World." Despite the positive sentiment, the reception to Payne's latest video has been far more mixed than the original social-media sensation that launched her name onto national media. Zach Braff is among the many on Twitter who are not impressed with Chewbacca Mom's sophomore effort at virality: Of course, there are others who think Payne could be just what the country is looking for. All in all, I'll take another viral video from Payne over an encore from this huge snake in a toilet any day. What are your thoughts on Chewbacca Mom's enduring fame?
