Biden’s press office snubs local Atlanta newspaper during Braves World Series visit https://w-mappy.com/bidens-press-office-snubs-local-atlanta-newspaper-during-braves-world-series-visit/ Tue, 27 Sep 2022 00:32:00 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/bidens-press-office-snubs-local-atlanta-newspaper-during-braves-world-series-visit/

WASHINGTON — The White House press office surprisingly snubbed Atlanta’s major newspaper Monday by banning two of its reporters from covering President Biden’s celebration of the Atlanta Braves’ World Series championship.

The stunning affront came about a week after Biden press officers fired four Orthodox Jewish reporters from a presidential event on hate crimes in another baffling access decision.

The Journal-Constitution’s Washington correspondent and a photographer sought unsuccessfully to attend the Braves event in the nearly 3,000 square foot East Room.

The newspaper was told only one person could go – meaning a sportswriter was the only Journal-Constitution employee admitted, despite requests for reconsideration due to the importance of the event to the community from Atlanta.

Politico’s West Wing Playbook first reported the exclusion. The Post has independently confirmed the details.

Adding to the significance of the day for Atlanta residents, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre called on the baseball team to have a “conversation” about changing its name just after the rally organized by Biden.

The exclusion was the latest flashpoint in a long-running fight between the White House and press advocates who want to restore media access to what it was before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The White House Correspondents Association tried to convince Biden’s team to reinstate press access standards allowing all White House reporters to attend major events – but were unsuccessful.

It’s unclear why the White House wouldn’t seek to host local reporters from a state Biden won less than 12,000 votes in 2020.

Major media outlets are routinely allowed to have multiple people at such events and reporters admitted to the East Room on Monday said there appeared to be enough space available to accommodate more press.

In fact, at least one reporter who did not respond was able to attend the event, meaning the White House did not verify that reporters were on the pre-approved list.

White House Correspondents’ Association president Tamara Keith, a reporter for NPR, said the association “continues to advocate that events in the East Room be open to the press.” say open to all reporters on the White House campus.

A White House official told the Post, “A sports correspondent for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution attended and covered today’s event for the newspaper. It’s long-standing protocol to allow one reporter per outlet to cover events in the East Room so the White House can accommodate as many news organizations as possible.

“The Atlanta Journal-Constitution was called back last week and elected to send its sports correspondent to cover the event for the newspaper,” the official said.

Press screening for presidential events began during the COVID-19 pandemic, but dragged on long after the relatively small White House briefing room returned to full capacity in June 2021 – outrageting the press corps of the White House.

In June, 73 journalists representing nearly two-thirds of the briefing room seats signed a letter demanding that the large rooms be restored to their previous open press status. Journalists fear that the practice of press retention authorized with the president will continue in future administrations.

“Who’s blocked today may be different from who’s blocked tomorrow – and since access restrictions tend to persist, it’s a fight worth fighting,” wrote the Washington Post media critic, Erik Wemple, in a July column.

Former Correspondents’ Association president Tom DeFrank of the National Journal told the Post in June that he signed the letter because “[h]Having covered the White House since June 1968 as a Newsweek intern, I have seen a disturbing erosion of access that was once routine.

It’s unclear why the White House continued to pre-screen journalists allowed into the East Room and other locations such as an auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building adjacent to the White House.

It's unclear why the White House wouldn't seek to accommodate local reporters.

Some journalists believe that by pre-screening reporters, which requires the press to submit an electronic RSVP, the White House is able to shape the coverage of Biden and the variety of questions he is asked.

At one point, The Post, which published explosive reports linking the president to his son Hunter’s overseas business dealings, was barred from attending presidential events through the opaque RSVP process for seven months. The rotating daily press pool, of which The Post is a member, also attends presidential events and the pool is not determined by the White House.

The press corps strongly opposes pre-selection, and Correspondents’ Association representatives have urged the administration to revert to historical standards rather than picking the reporters who attend.

The June letter from the press denounced the lack of clarity of the process and said it was “antithetical to the concept of a free press”.

“Let’s be frank,” the letter said. “Our job is not to be liked, or to care whether or not you like what we are asking. The ability of journalists to interview the most powerful man in our government should not be discretionary…Any The notion that space is “limited” is not supported by the fact that every other president before Biden (including Trump) has allowed full access to the same spaces without us filling out a pre-access application form. ‘admission.

The Middle East Now festival will present a film program “Focus on Iran” https://w-mappy.com/the-middle-east-now-festival-will-present-a-film-program-focus-on-iran/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 11:42:29 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/the-middle-east-now-festival-will-present-a-film-program-focus-on-iran/

At this edition of Middle East Now, the highly anticipated event held once a year in Florence, Italy, Iranian cinema occupies a special place in the festival’s programming.

Among the titles enjoying their Italian premiere is the feature film To imagine (2022, pictured above) by Ali Behrad, his first feature presented this year at the Cannes Film Festival as part of Critics’ Week. In the film, a taxi driver falls in love at night with a woman he can’t have, played by star Leila Hatami, whose appearances always make a movie a hit. It’s a dream tale that tells a love story that plays with fantasy and imagination.

Also from Iran, two beautiful short films, including the award-winning documentary the doll by Elahe Esmaili (2022), in which a 35-year-old father accepts the marriage of his 14-year-old daughter, a decision that triggers a heated confrontation in the family in the face of very different perspectives and shared values ​​between them. Also barter by Ziba Karamali and Emad Araad (2021), which stars Parsa, a thirteen-year-old boy, who tries to hide a secret from his father, making it a shortened Farhadi-style thriller.

The closing film of the festival will be World War III by Houman Seyedi, a film which won the first Orizzonti Prize in Venice at the beginning of September. The film also won Best Actor at Venice’s Mohsen Tanabandeh, its acting unconventional, and was selected as Iran’s submission for this year’s Oscar race.

Shakib (Tanabandeh) is a day laborer who finds himself catapulted onto a movie set. The film chronicles the atrocities committed by Adolf Hitler during World War II. When the actor who plays Hitler dies suddenly, he is replaced by Shakib, who strangely resembles the Führer. Soon the directors themselves turn into dictators, ready to do anything to achieve their goals and unwittingly turn Shakib into a monster. The film will be screened at Middle East Now in the presence of director Houman Seyedi and distributor Mohammad Atebbai.

Among the special events running alongside MENow’s film program is “Bound Narrative: A Photobook Library” curated by Lebanese Roï Saade and hosted at the Museo Novecento. One of the precious books on display will be ‘Zanjir’, an imagined written and photographic conversation between UK-based Iranian artist Amak Mahmoodian and Persian princess and memoirist Taj Saltaneh. In ‘Zanjir’, Amak Mahmoodian draws on images from the 19th century king’s collection housed in the Golestan Archives in Tehran and photographs she took in Iran to explore feelings of loss and separation from family and the homeland. Through memories and dreams, ‘Zanjir’ mythologizes absence and presence. The present which continually exists in the past, and the past which continually exists in the present.

At Prada, delicacy and roughness are skillfully presented with a paper-based fabric https://w-mappy.com/at-prada-delicacy-and-roughness-are-skillfully-presented-with-a-paper-based-fabric/ Sun, 25 Sep 2022 08:12:51 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/at-prada-delicacy-and-roughness-are-skillfully-presented-with-a-paper-based-fabric/

MILAN, ITALY: Among the heart-pounding neutral-hued looks that swept through Prada’s Spring/Summer 2023 show along Via Lorenzini on Thursday was an unforeseen moment of reprieve; Magenta! Cyber ​​Yellow! In a palette reminiscent of what Italian luxury is known for, it’s this look where the technical ingredients of this simple yet intricate collection are perhaps most apparent to the sartorial eye.

Yes, inside the dark, dungeon-like space of the Fondazione Prada – a panopticon surrounded by spools of black paper walls and with boxes as seats – a paper-based fabric collection was presented from spectacular way. With intentional tears and folds, and as if ripped from the body in a single primal, impulsive and intimate instant, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons set out to show “the interrelation between the raw and the sensual, the delicacy and the roughness”, rate the show. Lily. In the aforementioned look, the skirt was “ripped” to the thigh in an act of emancipation, visually evident against the bright hues.

Skillfully crossed day and evening clothes. A sheer black nightgown once reserved exclusively for the boudoir has been delicately styled with an industrial-colored poplin collared jumpsuit. The archetype of the classic blazer – structured and solid – adopts a bow and a train. Antique nappa bags have been pressed and crinkled (it’s a very exciting update on your favorite Prada silhouettes) and knitwear has been hand-steamed with intentionally pressed pleats in phenomenal detail.

This play of polarities presented in folds and wrinkles is Prada’s ever-evolving reinterpretation of modern femininity. A break with the restrictions of the societal tariff and, via minimalism and decoration, occasion and every day, an ode to the wonderful dichotomies we live in every day.

At this point, from time to time, the attached walls were interrupted by what appeared to be parts where someone had drilled holes. Guests could look through the abstract peepshows to see the works of Danish filmmaker Nicholas Winding Refn and his short films that explored women’s lives and the broad scope of femininity.

Bravo, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons. This partnership remains one of the most exciting on the fashion week calendar.

Not just netas, everyone runs after 15 minutes of frame https://w-mappy.com/not-just-netas-everyone-runs-after-15-minutes-of-frame/ Sun, 25 Sep 2022 00:30:17 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/not-just-netas-everyone-runs-after-15-minutes-of-frame/

Bengaluru FC led by Sunil Chhetri recently won the Durand Cup football tournament in Kolkata. But the acting governor of West Bengal appears to have played a different ballgame.

In a video that has gone viral, La. Ganesan, the governor, appears to push Chhetri aside to better fit into the photo op. Chhetri agreed but social media exploded in outrage. Cricketer Robin Uthappa tweeted at Chhetri: “You deserve so much better than this!!” The West Bengal sports minister has also come under fire for a similar moment with striker Sivasakthi Narayanan. Sports professional Joy Bhattacharjya tweeted the video of the politicians saying, “Five seconds that show you everything wrong with Indian sports. Apparently they won the Durand Cup, not Sunil Chhetri and Bengaluru FC!”

Me, myself: Video of West Bengal governor pushing Sunil Chhetri aside has gone viral

It’s not just sports. Clubs in Kolkata are vying with each other to get politicians to inaugurate their Durga Pujas. As soon as politicians take center stage, the event inevitably becomes all around them. This results in a mad media scrum for the neta while the artist who created the image is often relegated to the sidelines. At least Chhetri is a star himself. I’ve seen photographers ask a more unlucky winner to get “on the side” for the VIP politician to get the center frame. Sometimes the audience only sees the back of the jostling photographers instead of the honoree when the VIP politician appears.

Everyone knows that a politician should always present his best angle to the media and in this age of 24×7 news which also includes camera angles. Many often remark on how camera-friendly the prime minister is. He once gently adjusted Mark Zuckerberg, whose own products fuel our selfie addiction, and who inadvertently blocked the camera at a town hall-style event. But the Prime Minister was the guest of honor at this event. The larger question remains: why do so many politicians have to be on stage for a non-political event? Is this Durand Cup ceremony another example of how everything from sports to film festivals to cultural programs has been politicized? Organizers are beholden to politicians and then curry favor with them with photo ops and bouquets. Sometimes the politician does not even need to be physically present. I’ve seen bends for wedding announcements in some parts of the country where the happy couple are surrounded by mug shots of a galaxy of politicians ranging from CM to local councillor.

It is easy to criticize politicians. Awards ceremonies always have crowded stages as vice presidents of corporate sponsors and club secretaries are summoned for their moment into the spotlight and asked to say the dreaded “few words”. Being hungry for publicity is not the prerogative of the political class alone. A picture in the diary is a universal picture of self-esteem. Instead of fifteen minutes of fame, we suck two square inches.

We live in the age of the selfie where we are expected to insert ourselves into every photo opportunity. If we didn’t selfie it, it didn’t happen. I know someone who comes to social gatherings and religiously takes a selfie with guests that matter almost before saying hello. A friend insisted that we turn off the mood lighting at a dinner party and turn on the fluorescent tubes so she can take selfies with the other guests. I see Instagram posts of gallery openings where the art is half obscured by those who have to smile at the camera and mark their presence. Some food bloggers share more photos of themselves than of the dishes they blog about. I sometimes wonder what self-flattery tricks us into thinking the world needs visual proof that we had a cappuccino today. But I realize that social media rewards us when we post our own photos. The likes skyrocket, the endorphins kick in, and the cycle continues. It’s how we tell our followers that our lives are fabulous and enviable. Now, some of us can’t take in a vintage window or a sunset without mentally choreographing ourselves into the frame for the perfect Instagram shot. The world has become our red carpet and if it’s not red enough, there’s a filter for that.

Politicians have just learned to do it better than many of us. My photographs are always a parade of disasters – either I’m looking in the wrong direction, or the angle is unflattering exposing my baldness or giving me a double chin, or I have my eyes closed while my mouth is open. As someone who has yet to master the art of looking at the camera, I actually have a sly admiration for politicians who understand the mantra – don’t ask who the camera clicks for, it clicks for you.

Fixed Modern Warfare 2 beta performance (stuttering and frame drops) https://w-mappy.com/fixed-modern-warfare-2-beta-performance-stuttering-and-frame-drops/ Sat, 24 Sep 2022 18:28:16 +0000 https://w-mappy.com/fixed-modern-warfare-2-beta-performance-stuttering-and-frame-drops/

Are you suffering from Modern Warfare 2 beta performance issues like stuttering, lag, and dropped frames? The second beta weekend of MW2 is now live. Xbox and PC gamers join PlayStation gamers in beta testing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. However, players on all platforms are currently experiencing issues. As for the PC gamers, apart from the error code 0x00001338 and the “Verify phone number” problem, they also experience very bad performance issues. If your Modern Warfare 2 Beta experience on PC is plagued by FPS drops, stutters, and lags, here are some possible fixes.

Modern Warfare 2 Beta PC FPS drops, stutter and lag fix

How to Fix Modern Warfare 2 Beta Performance Issues, Stuttering, Lag, and Dropped Frames

The COD MW2 beta is now officially available for those who pre-ordered the game on Xbox and PC. Unfortunately, but also somewhat expected, the first day of the PC beta is marked by a myriad of issues. Among many other issues, players are reporting extremely poor MW2 beta performance on PC. Beta testers on forums, social media, and Reddit are reporting huge frame drops, unplayable stuttering, lag, and screen tearing. The situation is equally dire, even for gamers with high-end PCs, who shouldn’t have such issues.

Before moving on to the possible solutions, let’s point out something first. The game is still in beta, and there is still a full month until the full game is officially released. Thus, performance issues and poor optimization are somewhat expected. The developers still have plenty of time to hopefully fix these issues by the time the game launches. That said, let’s see what you can do right now to mitigate these issues:

Check System Requirements for Modern Warfare 2 Beta

Before starting the beta, you should check the minimum and recommended system requirements of the game. And plan your expectations accordingly. If you do not meet the requirements, adjust the graphics settings so that your game runs optimally.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • SE: Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3570 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Chart: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon RX 470

Recommended configuration:

  • SE: Windows 10/11
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Chart: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 580

Update GPU Drivers

Many beta performance issues in COD Modern Warfare 2 can be the result of outdated GPU drivers. So, make sure you have the latest version of your video card drivers before playing the game. You can check for the latest drivers through your GPU software or you can download them from the links below:

Disable third-party apps and overlays

While playing MW2 beta, it is recommended to disable all non-essential third-party apps that run in the background. Many of them are known to cause problems and conflicts with video games. This is especially the case for apps that have in-game overlays. This includes Discord overlay, Steam overlay, NVIDIA overlay, and other similar apps. A number of gamers report that the AMD Adrenalin overlay causes “insane stuttering”. There are also reports that Steam Overlay is also causing strange issues.

Check Modern Warfare 2 beta files

Use the “Verify integrity of game files” option on Steam to make sure there are no missing or corrupt files. The Modern Warfare 2 PC beta got a big update at launch, and there might be conflicts with old files if you preloaded the game. Here’s how to do it on Steam:

  • Right click on Modern Warfare 2 Beta in your Steam Library.
  • Select “Properties…”.
  • Select the “Local Files” tab.
  • Click “Verify integrity of game files.”.
  • Let Steam do its job.
  • Once done, restart your PC.
  • Launch Steam and start the Modern Warfare 2 beta.

If you’re playing the MW2 beta on Battle.net, click on a small blue cog icon next to the “Play” button and select “Scan and fix”, and let it find potential problems. If you are still having performance issues, try using the “Shader optimization” function in the graphics settings, under “Details and textures”. This can potentially solve many problems. finally absolutely make sure the “Texture streaming” function is off. For more information on how to maximize your FPS, check out our in-depth “Modern Warfare 2 Best PC Graphics Settings” guide.

For now, that’s about all you can do to fix Modern Warfare 2 beta performance issues like stuttering, lag, and dropped frames. If we come across any other potential solutions, we’ll add them to our guide. Before we end this article, we want to remind you one last time that this is only the beta version and things will probably get better later.
