zoom Cruise liner conglomerate Carnival Corporation & plc has signed a shipbuilding contract for a second next-generation cruise ship for its P&O Cruises brand with German shipbuilder Meyer Werft GmbH.The LNG-powered newbuild is scheduled to be delivered in 2022.The new ship is part of Carnival Corporation’s ongoing fleet enhancement strategy with 19 new ships scheduled for delivery between 2018 and 2022.The ship will have 180,000 gross tons and will be able to accommodate approximately 5,200 guests.It will be similar to its sister ship due for delivery in 2020, and will be the largest cruise ship to be built specifically for the British market, Carnival said.In addition, the cruise ship will feature “green cruising” design and will be powered by liquefied natural gas both while in port and at sea, thus reducing air emissions.“These two next-generation ships for delivery in the next four years are real and tangible evidence of our absolute optimism for future growth,” Carnival UK President, Josh Weinstein, said.“We have a bold and ambitious vision for P&O Cruises to become Britain’s number one holiday choice and we can only do that by increasing our fleet. The build for our 2020 ship begins this spring and it will offer all generations of British guests the holiday of a lifetime on the next generation of P&O Cruises ships,” P&O Cruises Senior Vice President, Paul Ludlow, added.In total, Carnival Corporation has ordered eight LNG-powered cruise ships from Meyer Werft and Meyer Turku, set for delivery between 2018 and 2022.Two ships will join AIDA Cruises’ fleet in 2018 and 2021, two have been ordered for Costa Cruises with expected delivery in 2019 and 2021, two for P&O Cruises UK with expected delivery in 2020 and 2022 and two for Carnival Cruise Line scheduled for delivery in 2020 and 2022.

Ove Meyer, Managing Partner of ZEABORN, will be leading ZEAMARINE in his capacity as Owners’ Representative and work with the existing top management team around Dominik Stehle (CCO), Nicki Schumacher (COO) and Michael Dumas (CFO) on the global expansion of the company.ZEAMARINE provides global tramp and liner services for the ocean transportation of heavy lift, breakbulk and project cargoes. It operates a fleet of about 90 multipurpose heavy lift vessels with capacities ranging between 6,300 and 30,000 dwt and a combined lifting capacity of up to 1,400 metric tons.
Take Our Poll CALGARY (660 NEWS) – A photo of Justin Trudeau wearing brownface is getting a mixed reaction from Alberta voters.On Wednesday, TIME Magazine published a photo showing Liberal leader Justin Trudeau dressed in an Aladdin costume-wearing brownface makeup.READ MORE: Trudeau apologizes for ‘racist’ brownface yearbook photoTrudeau apologized for the photo later that evening saying, “I take responsibility for my decision to do that; I shouldn’t have done it, I should have known better.”The apology is hard to accept for some in Calgary including City Councillor Jyoti Gondek. She said the Liberals have been trying to convince people of colour that it represents diversity, and this is definitely a blow to that.“It struck me–how dumb he can be, and his judgment is absolutely brutal.”2/The Liberal Party has spent decades trying to convince people of colour that it represents diversity, that they represent immigration-friendly policies. Nonsense. If this latest debacle doesn’t highlight the truth, you’ve got your head in the sand.— Jyoti Gondek (@JyotiGondek) September 19, 2019Others in Calgary had a similar reaction to Trudeau wearing brownface.“I have yet to meet a politician who doesn’t have a skeleton in the closet or isn’t on some level a complete idiot,” said one woman. “You’d think he would learn that you shouldn’t be doing that.”CityNews also spoke to some in Edmonton about the photo.“It seems a little insensitive to me,” said one man. “Personally, I don’t really care. He wasn’t the prime minister when he was doing that. I don’t necessarily think that it means he is a racist,” said another.While many are calling the photo offensive, those we spoke to said it wouldn’t change how they vote on Oct. 21.

Facebook Good Boys surpassed expectations to debut with $21 million US, according to studio estimates Sunday, dethroning the Fast & Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw, which slid to second with $14.1 million in its third weekend.

Seth Rogen’s Good Boys costars revealed why they think the actor would make a good dad.“He’s always chill and I think we all know why,” Sam Richardson told Us Weekly exclusively of the Freaks and Geeks alum, 37, at the Good Boys premiere in Los Angeles on Wednesday, August 14. “Remember, my dad smoked weed all the time. I didn’t realize it until one day. … I was a teenager and then I had like a Ratatouille flashback and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s what my dad was so chill.’ So it worked out for me.” READ MOREWEEKEND BOX OFFICE: ‘GOOD BOYS’ SCORES WITH $21 MILLION; OTHER NEWCOMERS BOMBWhile Us scored Universal Pictures the only #1 box office debut for an original film in earlier this year, the studio can now boast they’ve accomplished this feat twice in 2019. The original R-rated comedy Good Boys opened in first place at the box office this weekend with an impressive $21 million opening weekend, giving the comedy genre a much needed boost after films like Stuber, Long Shot, and Late Night were D.O.A. It also scored the second biggest opening weekend for a comedy in 2019 so far, right behind A Madea Family Funeral’s $27 million bow. READ MORE‘Good Boys’ ~ Universal HandoutBOX OFFICE: ‘GOOD BOYS’ GIVES UNIVERSAL ANOTHER WIN FOR ORIGINAL, R-RATED COMEDYIn a happy surprise ending to the summer movie season (unless Ready Or Not pulls another miracle next weekend), Universal’s R-rated, wholly original and star-free comedy Good Boys topped the weekend box office with a robust $21 million opening weekend. That’s just the second time that a wholly original movie has topped the weekend charts this year, following Universal’s Us ($71 million in March). With all the talk about how Disney has ruled the box office with an iron fist, it’s worth noting that the year’s biggest (domestic) grossers are Universal’s Us ($175 million) and Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 3 ($171 million), which are as “not Disney” as you can imagine and prime examples of what those respective studios do best. READ MOREBOX OFFICE: ‘GOOD BOYS’ LEADS CROWDED WEEKEND WITH $21 MILLIONThe Bean Bag Boys, the self-appointed nickname for the trio of best friends in Universal’s “Good Boys,” are conquering much more than sixth grade. They are also leading the domestic box office, exceeding expectations and collecting $21 million on opening weekend.“Good Boys,” which screened at 3,204 North American theaters, is a much-needed win for original comedies, a genre that’s been struggling at the box office as of late. The Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg-produced movie is the first R-rated funny film to open in first place in three years (since 2016’s “The Boss”), as well as the biggest opening for an original comedy this year.

Yes, there was A Madea Family Funeral back in March that opened to $27M.

Not since Melissa McCarthy’s “The Boss” came in No. 1 all the way back in April 2016 has an R-rated comedy topped the North American box office.“This is like a unicorn sighting,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for data firm Comscore.In recent years, R-rated horror has largely taken the place of R-rated comedy at the box office, as Hollywood has increasingly ceded the genre to TV and streaming services. But Universal Pictures, which released “Good Boys,” has kept the flame. The studio was behind “The Boss” as well as the intervening years’ highest grossing domestic comedies: 2017’s “Girls Trip” and 2018’s “Night School.”“Good Boys” broke out of a crowded late-summer field of new releases. The weekend’s other new widely released films — the animated sequel “The Angry Birds Movie 2,” the shark attack sequel “47 Metres Down: Uncaged,” the Bruce Springsteen-inspired drama “Blinded by the Light” and Richard Linklater’s Cate Blanchett-led “Where’d You Go Bernadette” — all fizzled.“Good Boys” rode a buzzy premiere at South By Southwest, good reviews (80% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and the imprimatur of producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Good Boys” is much like a tween version of “Superbad”) to notch the best opening for an original comedy this year. Second place is Universal’s body-switch comedy “Little.”Directed by Gene Stupnitsky (who co-wrote the script with Lee Eisenberg), “Good Boys” stars Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams and Brady Noon as sixth graders trying to make it to their first kissing party. The movie’s much-watched red-band trailer traded on its ironies. As Rogen says, Tremblay, Williams and Noon are all too young to see their own movie alone.Jim Orr, distribution chief for Universal, credited Rogen and Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures and the film’s clever marketing for the film’s performance.“This is a genre that is very difficult to do and we’re having great success as a studio with a very diverse slate,” Orr said. “One of the common denominators there is our marketing department. They just over-deliver constantly with a broad range of films.”The challenge of “Good Boys” was to turn out moviegoers older than the movie’s pipsqueak protagonists, and it did. Only 7% of the audience was under age 18, according to Universal, though 41% was under 25. Crowds split evenly between the sexes: 52% male, 48% female.The release strategies behind some of the weekend’s other new films were harder to discern.Sony’s “The Angry Birds Movie 2,” on a budget of $65 million, opened with a paltry $10.5 million domestically, though it added $19.4 million internationally. Hoping to snarl kids before school starts, Sony released the film on Tuesday. But it didn’t come close to the $38.2 million domestic debut of the first installment in 2016 despite notably better reviews (76% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes).Sony’s “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” however, grossed $53.7 million overseas after expanding to 46 markets — the largest foreign launch for any Quentin Tarantino film, and the best worldwide haul for any film this weekend.“47 Metres Down: Uncaged,” from Entertainment Studios, also showed little bite. It debuted with $9 million, a slight downtick from the $11.2 million the first one opened with in 2017.A pair of films that might have been platform released to build word-of-mouth instead opened wide in bids to stand out in the traditional dumping-ground of late summer. But the results were mixed.“Blinded by the Light,” which Warner Bros. plunked down $15 million for at the Sundance Film Festival, took in $4.5 million from 2,307 locations. The film, which has been warmly reviewed, is about a British-Pakistani teen growing up in 1980s England whose life is transformed after he discovers Springsteen.And United Artists’ “Where’d You Go Bernadette” grossed $3.5 million from 2,404 locations. Based on Maria Semple’s 2012 comic novel, Linklater’s film earned lukewarm reviews for its tale of a missing mother (Blanchett).The “Good Boys” debut gave Universal, also behind “Hobbs & Shaw” its third straight weekend at No. 1 and 10th this year — second only to Disney.With two weeks to go, the overall summer movie season is running 1.9% behind the pace of last summer, according to Comscore.Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theatres, according to Comscore.

The Miami Heat put the New York Knicks one more defeat from extinction Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, winning Game 3 87-70 under the fourth-quarter brilliance of LeBron James and guard Mario Chalmers.James rang up 32 points — including eight straight to start the fourth — and the unheralded Chalmers added 19, including back-to-back three-pointers to break open the game. The defeat was the 13th straight for the Knicks in the playoffs, an NBA record.Dwyane Wade added 20 points for the Heat, up 3-0 in the series. Miami goes for the sweep in N.Y. on Sunday afternoon.Carmelo Anthony scored 22 points but shot just 7 of 23 for the Knicks, who played without Amare Stoudemire, who cut his hand after the Game 2 loss in Miami.
In his third year of eligibility, former Reds shortstop Barry Larkin was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Monday. Larkin, who is the only player elected to the Hall of Fame this year, received 86.4 percent of the vote from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. A player needs at least 75 percent of the vote in order to be inducted. Larkin spent his entire major league career with the Cincinnati Reds from 1986-2004. In that time, he batted .295 and tallied 198 home runs, 960 RBIs, 2,340 hits and 379 stolen bases. Only Pete Rose has more hits in a Reds uniform. Larkin also won three Gold Gloves, the National League MVP award in 1995 and was a member of 1990 World Series team that swept the Oakland Athletics. Larkin’s nine Silver Slugger Awards, given to the best offensive player in both leagues at each position, is second-most all-time by an infielder behind only Alex Rodriguez, currently of the New York Yankees. The 47-year-old Larkin is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, and attended the University of Michigan, where his No. 16 was retired in 2010. Larkin was also recruited by legendary Michigan coach Bo Schembechler to play football for the Wolverines. Larkin was redshirted his freshman year and thereafter decided to devote all of his time to baseball. It appears Larkin might have made the right choice. Larkin will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., on July 22.
Brazilian star Neymar talks to critics who feel he over-exaggerates fouls during matches.Paris Saint-Germain forward also revealed that he has settled more than he expected in the French club.“I suffered from many fouls in the World Cup and if you look at those actions, most of the time there is a kick,” Neymar said via Marca.“It wasn’t theatrical and I am the only one to suffer those fouls. Defensive marking is hard because if they leave me alone, then I’ll make something happen for my team.Opinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…“Today, we talk a lot about what happened but as I said before if we are talking about it, it is because it is about Neymar and all news will be amplified, be it positive or negative.“I’m pleased with how I’ve adapted to French football though and it was easier than I expected because Ligue 1 is a lot like LaLia Santander.“With the city, it took a little longer for me to adapt and I suffered for a while but now I feel at home.”
