Getty Images Stan Lee’s former business partner Keya Morgan was charged Friday with felony elder abuse against the late comic book writer, editor and publisher of Marvel Comics, according to a Tuesday report by CBS2 Los Angeles.Among the charges facing Morgan are false imprisonment of an elder adult and forgery or fraud against an elder adult, the report says. The charges reportedly stem from an incident that occurred during the summer of 2018.A warrant has been issued for Morgan’s arrest, the report says. Last August, a judge issued a restraining order against Morgan, stipulating that he stay away from Lee, according to a report in Variety. At the time, Morgan told the publication that the allegations against him were “fake, fraudulent news.”The Los Angeles Superior Court, where Morgan was reportedly charged, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Lee died last November at 95 and made his final Marvel cameo in Avengers: Endgame. Stan Lee Marvel

During September’s PlayStation Meeting, Sony officially announced the PlayStation 4 Pro. The event focused on the enhancements PS4 Pro would have over the current PlayStation 4. This includes High Dynamic Range support, checkerboard 4K scaling, and more stable frame rates. Even those who play on standard 1080p televisions will notice these improvements. While it was admittedly difficult to see these enhancements from a live stream, it was simple to understand the power of the PlayStation 4 Pro.Out of all the games shown, the highlight was Horizon: Zero Dawn. More than any title at the event, Horizon nicely demonstrated how the PS4 Pro’s more robust horsepower will benefit PS4 games going forward. During the event, we got to see how the game looked with and without HDR and all of the other enhancements. While the title still looks impressive running on a stock PS4, it looks significantly better on a PS4 Pro.These enhancements will be something most upcoming titles can benefit from if developers choose to enable them. Below are five ways the PS4 Pro will make games better for PlayStation users.Looks great even on 1080pThough the PS4 Pro’s enhancements will be more noticeable on 4K HDR-enabled televisions, those with 1080p TVs won’t be left out of the party. Thanks to supersampling, players will get a more stable image with “virtually no jaggies.” This is possible because the game is internally rendered at a high resolution before it is shrunken down to 1080p. Some detail is lost, but users will still get vastly improved graphics.Higher detailed texturesA game like Horizon with its lush, vast environments will benefit from higher quality shadow maps and anisotropic filtering. These techniques will increase the quality of textures overall. Everything from rocks, trees, villages, people, and of course, robot dinosaurs will look real enough to touch. For Horizon specifically, the team is still working on how to tweak all of this for 1080p output, but on 4K TVs, users will easily see the richer texture quality in the game.Checkerboard renderingWith some exceptions, most titles on PS4 will not run at native 4K. However, instead of simply upscaling games, the PS4 Pro will use a special technique called checkerboard rendering to enhance visual fidelity. This will produce images that are nearly indistinguishable from true 4K. The technique itself is pretty involved, but what’s important is that checkerboard rendering will make all games on PS4 Pro look fantastic.HDRHigh Dynamic Range is something that is relatively new to gaming and 4K TVs. HDR enhances the range of colors that can be displayed on a screen, giving games a richer look. With normal rendering techniques, a lot of color fidelity is lost when converting images for normal TVs. With an HDR capable television, none of that data is lost. This is something that even owners of regular PS4s can benefit from, provided they play games on a 4K HDR television.Stable frame ratesSome games on PS4 Pro will benefit from having more stable, or higher frame rates. This isn’t something that is as widely publicized, but it is worth noting. One example is Rise of the Tomb Raider which will give players the option to play with an unlocked frame rate that will go up to 45 frames per second (provided they play at 1080p). Even though the vast majority of games won’t get higher frame rates, most will have a stable 30 frames per second at 4K resolution.The PlayStation 4 Pro will be released on November 11.

Increasing exposure to outdoor light can significantly reduce short-sightedness in children, a new study has found.The findings revealed that it is not ‘near work’ on computer and other screens that causes myopia, but a lack of adequate outdoor light.“Children exposed to the least outdoor light had faster eye growth and hence faster myopia progression,” said lead researcher Scott Read, optometrist and associate professor at Queensland University Of Technology in Australia. Also, for those who already have myopia, increasing time outside is likely to reduce the progression of the vision problem. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Children should spend more than an hour and preferably at least two hours a day in the outdoor light to help prevent myopia from developing and progressing.“Optometrists need to make their patients aware that less than 60 minutes’ exposure to light outdoors per day is a risk factor for myopia,” Read suggested.The findings were presented at the Australian Vision Convention in Queensland, Australia.

By regulation, flights cannot operate without a minimum number of personnel, according to the Civil Aviation Law. In recent weeks, Interjet has had problems in contractual negotiations with its workforce. Cancun, Q.R. — More than a dozen flights were canceled by Mexico’s Interjet airline this weekend due to staff shortages, affecting passengers heading to and from Cancun. Miguel Alemán Magnani, Interjet general director, pointed out risks for the company due to the financial situation it is going through. Several weeks ago during the International Association of Air Transport in the City of Mexico, the company’s CEO, William Shaw warned that “the airline is sick”, and without an agreement to work, the condition could worsen. He explained that they were in continued negotiations with workers. Eduardo Rivadeneyra Núñez, spokesman and head of Public Relations said that 12 of the canceled flights were Mexico City-Cancun while one was a Mexico City-Cancun-Toronto flight. In total, 13 flights were affected by the company’s lack of staff.

The £15,000 splinter island was installed at Stone’s Christchurch Way’s junction with Lichfield Road to to tackle a bottleneck in the area. But back in 2011 – shortly after it was installed – several residents and councillors spoke out against it following reports of increased journey times and gridlock for shoppers attempting to leave Morrisons car park onto Christchurch Way. Now fresh calls have been made for it to be scrapped with more than 120 people signing an e-petition. Stone Town Council member Rob Kenney launched the petition on Staffordshire County Council’s website.

Rodney Sherratt, aged 45, of Yarnfield, said: “I think it should go – it’s terrible trying to get out of the Morrisons car park when it’s busy. “The problem is people coming out of that junction off the car park. Most people want the right hand lane and when the lights are on the traffic backs up and you can’t get out of the car park. “If you could use both lanes it would be loads better. I’d definitely like to see the island removed. I’ve seen the traffic all the way back to the top of the hill on most occasions, especially on a Saturday when Morrisons is busy.” poll loadingDoes the island in Stone need to go?0+ VOTES SO FARYesNo Jean Plant, of Stone, has signed the petition. The 71-year-old said: “My sister scraped her van coming round it because it isn’t a big enough turning. “A lot of traffic comes down here and people who haven’t been here before don’t know you can only turn left and they have to indicate to go over the other side because they don’t realise it’s a one way. “When it rains it forms a big puddle, I don’t know why they did it in the first place. It was only supposed to be temporary, I’d definitely be happy to see it go. Everybody is signing the petition.” Traffic queuing in Stone But Robert Watson-Smith, aged 70, of Stone, said: “You get the odd one trying to get into the next lane because they haven’t realised but if they were in the wrong lane and the island wasn’t there they’d be cutting across. “I think the money would be far better spent filling in pot holes. It hasn’t caused me any issues. The water collects there a bit but only when it’s raining heavy.

Keep your fingers crossed and we can persuade the powers that be it should not be there.” Councillor Helen Fisher, cabinet member for highways and transport at the county council said: “We do listen to residents and work with local communities when there is an issue affecting their neighbourhood. “Following a request from the local county councillor, highways teams will be carrying out a feasibility study on the potential removal of the splitter island. If this was identified as the best option, any improvement work would need to be prioritised against other works in the area.” Read MoreTop stories on StokeonTrentLive Click to playTap to play Dad slams ‘disgusting’ hospital window Police search for missing woman Follow StokeonTrentLive Download our app – You can download our free app for iPhone and iPad from Apple’s App Store, or get the Android version from Google Play.

The island was installed eight years ago The petition said: “Since its installation in 2011 at the bottom of Christchurch Way in Stone – the traffic flow there has become increasingly congested. “Through traffic and exiting cars from Morrisons car park are experiencing long delays. The carnival parade is prevented from travelling down the High Street as the right turn exit at the bottom cannot be negotiated by the HGVs. “This also applies to emergency vehicles called to the High Street and large delivery vehicles to the High Street, all are unable to turn right. They have to continue to the Lichfield Road to make hazardous turns in small side streets to return to Stafford Street towards the A34.” Within two weeks of the e-petition’s launch 103 people had signed it with that number now standing at 124. It will remain active until May 31.

Carey will take the stage during three different performances in December. During one show, he’ll be backed by the JR Blues Band; another Costa Rican band, The Glorious Bastard, will open for Carey at another show.The Tico Times spoke to the musician before his visit. Excerpts follow.How did you become a musician, and what’s the heritage you want your music to leave behind?When I was a kid I use to sing with my brothers and sisters all the time; I got to sing in coffee houses with them when I was very young. I later started picking up the harmonica, and eventually took lessons from James Montgomery. He was a popular blues artist who did shows with the Almond Brothers band and James Cotton; he taught me the craft of playing blues harp. My career began when I was going to blues clubs in my teens. I would see Albert Collins, Howlin’ Wolf, and Chicago blues artists like Buddy Guy and Junior Wells. One night I went to a club called Joe’s Place and sat in with bluesman Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup, who wrote “That’s All Right, Mama,” Elvis Presley’s first big hit. It was right then and there that I knew I wanted to sing the blues.Actually, I have a heritage that’s already going on. I have two sons who are professional musicians. Brendon was a blues guitarist for years in my band; now he is writing and doing his own music. My other son Sean, who lives in New Orleans, is a bass player on a few of my albums and is presently producing and performing there. They are both artists in their own right. Brendon is a reggae artist in Martinique and Sean is a hip hop R& B artist in New Orleans. Also, I had a lot of other musicians in my band who are recording artists now.What would you say are the main influences in your music, and who are your favorite musicians?The Rolling Stones and the Animals were my first albums that I bought. They were doing covers of bluesmen that I knew nothing about because I could not hear them on mainstream radio. Eventually I started looking into who these blues artist were. That’s when I discovered Muddy Waters, BB King, Howlin’ Wolf, and my favorites: Buddy Guy and Junior Wells.Other favorite musicians of mine are Carlos Santana, Eric Burton, Sonny Boy Williamson, Elmore James, James Cotton, Robert Johnson and Albert King. What makes your music different, and what do you think is the key to success?My music is different because it is like a hybrid of all different types of music. All the influences I have had over the years: rock ‘n’ roll, funk, blues and country. The 60s soul music that was coming out of Memphis, New Orleans and Motown has helped shape my sound. I think the key to success is to stay focused and really enjoy what you are doing.What do you feel when you are onstage, and what do you seek to get across?No matter where I am in the world, I realize that music is the universal language, and the blues is alive all over the world. When I get onstage I feel like I become a different person. The adrenaline kicks in and I feel like I’m in command and I can really get things going no matter where I am. What I transmit from the stage is a high-energy groove that will make you want to move.Have you ever played in Costa Rica before? What do you think about Costa Rican music?I have never played in Costa Rica before, but I have a lot of friends who have been there. They have told me how wonderful and beautiful the place is, and I’m really looking forward to having a really great time. I am looking forward to experiencing the culture as well as the great musical experience I’m going to have with [my Costa Rican colleagues], the JR Blues Band.I like a lot of the more traditional rhythmic and melodic music that I have heard. I am hoping to learn more about it during this upcoming visit. I am looking forward to having a wonderful interaction with my fans through music that will make you move and dance.John Carey’s performances in Costa Rica will take place Dec. 5 at Café de Playa, in Playas Del Coco, Buanacaste; Dec. 6 at the closure of Festival Paseo Gastronómico La Luz, Barrio Escalante, San José; and Dec. 10 as the main show at Amón Solar, El Sótano, San José.

Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Top Stories 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean In France this week, the National Assembly approved a bill that would ban plastic bags in all supermarkets and stores on January 1, 2016. And in April, The European Parliament approved rules to clamp down on the use of flimsy plastic bags, removing the last major hurdle to pass the legislation. It would require member states to reduce the use by some 80 percent by 2025.The U.S. is seeing most bans imposed on local levels, by cities and counties.Senegal’s government hasn’t announced details on how it will enact the bans, but said alternative solutions to the flimsy bags will have to be found. The discarded bags are an eyesore, shredded and hanging in trees and beautiful flowering branches. And they are a danger to fish, sheep and other animals that may ingest the bags and their toxins.Modou Fall, who has dedicated himself to getting Senegalese to stop littering and quit using plastic bags, is optimistic about the ban, though he notes that garbage bins are needed around the city so people can properly dispose of trash.Clad in more than 7,000 thin plastic sacks and a dome cap made from 100 plastic cups stapled together, the tall 42-year-old is a familiar, although bizarre, sight in Dakar. Wearing the plastic items that he gathered from the streets and cleaned, he looks like a creature that emerged from a swamp, the litter clinging to him.

They blow around like feathers in Dakar’s coastal breezes, piling up alongside buildings on city streets and clogging canals.Thin plastic shopping bags, and pieces of them, litter this seaside capital and the nearby waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The number of discarded bags is staggering — a total of 5 million in Senegal, according to Environment Minister Abdoulaye Balde. In this photo taken on Thursday, May 28, 2015, Modou Fall, right, clad in more than 7,000 thin plastic sacks and a dome cap made from 100 plastic cups stapled together, speaks on a microphone as he tries to get Senegalese to stop littering and quit using plastic bags, in Dakar, Senegal.

He pushes a cart with two Senegalese flags protruding from it and speakers playing military music.Fall buys bulk paper sacks from a factory and sells about 1,000 per day, including to a pharmacy and other stores.“Plastic sticks around for hundreds of years, beyond anyone’s lifetime,” he said. “We must think of future generations.”Copyright © The Associated Press.

Implementation was planned for six months later.In 2013, Mauritania imposed a ban, saying an estimated 70 percent of cattle and sheep in the capital were dying from ingesting plastic bags, according to the Washington-based Earth Policy Institute. Cameroon, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Mali, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia and Malawi are also among countries that have adopted or announced bans, according to the institute. Botswana and South Africa require a certain thickness of plastic bags, so they can be reused, and added levies saw a reduction in use, the institute added.Rwanda banned the use of non-biodegradable plastic at a certain thickness in 2008 and carries out strict enforcement, including taking plastic off of luggage and seizing bags that don’t meet specifications from visitors flying into the country. Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Sponsored Stories Now, the government is set to impose a ban, joining a global shift against the bags.Street vendors wonder how they will do business without them. Dauda Ndiaye sells hundreds of plastic bags a day to other vendors, who sell fish, meat and other goods in the Ouakam neighborhood. For 500 francs (about $1), a customer can buy a packet of 100.Banning the bags will “be a huge problem because all the vendors here use plastic to sell nuts, glass, meat, fruit and vegetables,” said Ndiaye, a 23-year-old father of three. “If they are going to ban plastic, I won’t be able to feed my family.”Another merchant, Ami Ndiaye, says she must keep using plastic to protect the charcoal she sells wrapped in small paper rolls which are then neatly piled into plastic.“The problem isn’t the plastic, it’s the people,” she said. “People must put it in the garbage and not on the streets so animals don’t eat it and it doesn’t pile up.”But Pascaline Ouedraego fully supports the measures, saying she worries about chemicals from the sacks getting into the food she buys. She moved to Senegal four years ago from Burkina Faso, which adopted a ban.

clarification on conducting scholarship exams between September 14 and September 25 Ganesh Chaturthi begins from September 17 and many schools will be closed for five to six days” After demands from various religious bodies and political parties the education ministry issued a GR on September 8 asking schools to discuss with the PTA and announce holidays for festivals The order also asked education officers not to conduct any state level exam during the festival period The second GR however contradicts the first one as scholarship exams have been slated to be held during the festival period Legislator from teachers’ constituency Kapil Patil said that education minister Vinod Tawde and the education department lacked coordination and hence came out with contradictory orders “While the GR has directed the education officers not to conduct any exam during the festival period the circular of the education commissioner mentions that the scholarship exams for English and Maths would be held between September 14 and September 25 This points out that there is no coordination within the education department Education Minister should first improve the working of the officials in his own department and then demand that teachers should improve their working” added Patil Patil said “The government is operating in a domineering way In such a situation schools and teachers have no option but to face parents as well as political parities demanding festival holidays” The scholarship exams were supposed to be held in July However the exams had to be postponed to September 3 for administrative purposes according to the education department Meanwhile Nand Kumar said that there was no contradiction in the two orders “The festival period starts from September 17 and the exams

was Japan’s Sayaka Sato; and in 2012 when she put an end to the aspirations of China’s Li Xuerui Saina suffered the heartbreak of narrowly missing the hat-trick in 2011 when she went down to another

after failing to find a spot in the top-10 Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings With every one of the top-eight-ranked women participating the 11th ranked Saina has been thrown to the wolves as one of the most dangerous floaters in the 32-player main draw Wolf No 1 in the Indian’s path is an old and familiar face Thailand’s eighth-seeded Ratchanok Intanon who amazed everyone by winning the World Championship gold medal in 2013 but who has since failed to live up to those lofty standards she set herself in her breakout year when she was still a precocious hugely talented 18-year-old The two have clashed on a dozen occasions in the past and Saina holds a slim seven-five advantage in their head-to-head clashes But it must be remembered that most of the Indian’s victories came in the earlier years before her career-threatening right knee injury at the 2016 Rio Olympics Two of those wins came in the title clashes of international tournaments on each other’s home turf the 2012 Thailand Open and the 2015 India Open On current form however the 22-year-old Thai with exemplary court manners and deportment holds most of the aces including a five-year age advantage over her Indian antagonist Only a week back Ratchanok captured the crown in her home tournament at the expense of fellow-countrywoman Busanan Ongbamrungphan who had ended Saina’s challenge at the semi-final stage Saina on her part has the Malaysia Masters title that she won in January this year to show for her labours in international tournaments since her return post-rehabilitation However she continues to struggle with fitness issues and looks distinctly tentative on the repaired right knee even as Ratchanok has been showing greater signs of the form that won her the world crown four years ago The Indian’s greatest hope lies in extending the rallies and keeping the shuttle in play for as long as she can since Ratchanok believes in going for her shots and for the lines and thus makes that many more errors In addition the Thai’s staying powers have always been suspect; and Saina’s chances of victory will increase exponentially the longer the match lasts Ratchanok can win in two games but if Saina can extend the contest to a decider she may well advance in the tournament Saina’s compatriot Pusarla Venkata Sindhu opens her campaign against another Thai Pornpawee Chochuwong the very player Saina had beaten at 22-20 22-20 while winning the Malaysia Masters earlier this year The baby-faced Thai who turned 19 on 22 January this year has been making her way steadily up the rankings ladder

China Open and 2017 India Open against some of the best names in the world and also took home the Syed Modi International in the face of some lukewarm opposition Sindhu was also a finalist at the 2016

He Bingjiao (at 22-24 in the third game of the Badminton Asia quarter-final) Spanish southpaw Marin (also in the quarter-final of the Singapore Open) and China’s Chen Yufei (in the round of 32 at the Malaysia Open) It would appear that Sindhu has too much speed and firepower for the Thai teenager to counter; and the world No 3 (she has climbed up one rank since the Indonesia Open seedings were declared) is strongly favoured to take Pornpawee in her stride and move into a second-round clash with either China-born American Zhang Beiwen or Indonesia’s Hanna Ramadini Meanwhile in the tough
