READ ALSO: AfCFTA, veritable platform for trade negotiations — Osinbajo According to Prof. Osinbajo, “One important objective of the AfCFTA is to overcome the economic fragmentation of the continent by bringing the regional economic blocs together in a common arrangement. This being the case, African countries should look to negotiating trade treaties with other parts of the world on the basis of AfCFTA rather than through arbitrarily designed regional blocs. African countries should not allow themselves to be lured into arrangements which do not serve their long-term development objectives.” … [Read more...] about Africa should use AfCFTA as template for trade negotiations with the world — Osinbajo
Plan an event template
“Effectively, it’s not a big event with everybody together in the stadium — it’s a series of events that effectively follow under the guideline of 175 people or less,” Polis said. “It’s like a number of different groups of 175 that are there. That would allow for the groups that have an outbreak for there to be contract tracing and notification of others in that group, which is very hard to do if you had 1,000 or 10,000 people in one group.” … [Read more...] about Fans will be able to attend Broncos home games starting Sept. 27 against Tampa Bay, Gov.

Both the unresolved anger and the rifle skills of Zoe Hull (Isabel May) are evident in an opening hunting scene with her ex-military dad Todd (Thomas Jane). She shoots an elk which lies wounded, and while her father starts patiently explaining about finishing the kill in a humane way, Zoe ambles over and crushes its head with a rock. Back home, she's still having conversations with her late mother Jennifer (Radha Mitchell), whose chemo headscarf tells us how she died. Todd worries his daughter is cutting herself off, giving up her cell phone in what seems an aberration for a teenager; even her spiky rapport with her devoted best friend Lewis (Olly Sholotan) suggests an unhealthy guardedness. … [Read more...] about ‘Run Hide Fight’: Film Review | Venice 2020
Ed Ross, ITV’s head of marketing and media, says the network is delighted to be breaking new ground with the collaboration, and that this type of partnership should become the template for major sporting events. “Copa90 [is] leading the way in engaging with football fan culture across the world, so our partnership with them presents a new opportunity to enrich our coverage of the action on the pitch with an insight into how the Euros impact supporters on the ground across the continent, as the tournament progresses,” says Ross. “Quite simply we feel this offers fans our most complete coverage of a major sporting tournament to date, and for us that is what this is all about.” … [Read more...] about How Copa90 Is Using Snapchat, WhatsApp, And More To Be A Next-Gen Sports Media Brand
For sheer heart, I loved Penguin Bloom, world premiering at TIFF, with an outstanding performance from Naomi Watts that with the right push from the right distributor, could land her a third lead actress Oscar nod, and her first since 2012’s The Impossible, in which she played a wife and mother whose vacation in Thailand turned tragic when a major typhoon hit the country. In this true story, just like that one, Watts plays a wife and mother whose vacation in Thailand turns tragic when she falls from a rickety roof railing and becomes paralyzed (maybe Watts ought to stay out of Thailand). The highly athletic Sam Bloom begins an excruciating journey back to some normality of life with the help of an injured Magpie bird that comes into hers and her family’s life at just the right time. The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln plays the husband. The bird is brilliant by the way, and the movie is heartwarming, humane, and a life-affirming story that is much needed right now. … [Read more...] about Oscars: Fall Film Fest Circuit Aims To Promote Early Contenders McDormand, Winslet, Hopkins, King, And More – But Is It Just Too Damn Early?
