Jon Favreau

first_imgCelebrityJon FavreauBy Ed Leibowitz – May 7, 20141671ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItAfter moving to L.A. from Chicago in 1993, I lived in a building on Franklin Avenue. The shopping strip across the street didn’t really amount to much then. There was the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, a little place where you could get a drink, another where you could get a cup of coffee. But the neighborhood was right under the Hollywood sign, and my friends and I dug that because we were all wanna-be actors.One morning my phone rang. A guy says, “It’s the LAPD calling.” I asked what’s wrong, and he says, “We have your car.” I said, “My car’s parked in a lot next to the building.” He said, “Why don’t you look?” I looked out my window—and there was no car.They had stolen the seats and the air bags. They had stripped it fast, even though the cops had recovered it almost immediately. It was a Honda, and the cop told me that Hondas get stolen all the time. I asked him what I could get that doesn’t get stolen. He said, “They don’t steal old cars.” So I took the insurance money and bought a 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente convertible, which we used in Swingers.Queue ’Em UpChef(Opens May 9)Favreau writes, directs, and stars in this comedy about a failed restaurateur turned food-truck cook.Iron Man(2008)As director, he resuscitated Robert Downey Jr.’s career by insisting that the actor play the lead in the Marvel blockbuster.Swingers(1996)Favreau wrote the script and starred with Vince Vaughn in the indie comedy, which was set in retro-hipster Los Feliz.I waited months for the classic car dealer to restore it. Finally he finished it, and it looked beautiful. It was a good thing I’m so neurotic. I made sure I got my insurance before I even drove off the lot. The first day, I parked in front of the Actors’ Gang theater on Santa Monica Boulevard because I was doing a show at the time. There was a screech and a slam. The car that ran into the Comet was a stolen one—I think it was a Caprice—and it was totaled. The people inside it ran away from the accident. The whole back left rear of my Comet was completely accordioned. It took forever to find a replacement piece, and they ended up taking it off of a four-door. You can see in the movie it’s missing the trim in the back because my car was a two-door, and the trim didn’t fit.With Swingers, the level of attention became overwhelming— it’s debilitating. I’ve grown very Zen about [success] as I’ve gotten older. People aren’t really equipped to handle it, and when it happens to you, what you really want to do is hide. So I sublet an apartment in Santa Monica and just sort of hung out away from the scene.After the movie, Vince [Vaughn] got a new Bronco. I bought a used Cadillac DeVille sedan. Vince said I looked like a hillbilly who had just gotten a record contract. I loved it—it’s the car my grandfather used to drive. I met the woman who was to become my wife not long after. She told me later that, for her and her mother, it was definitely a plus that I was a young guy driving around in a big old Cadillac. I was kind of an old man even then.One day I saw Vince driving toward me on Sunset Boulevard. By then he was exploding beyond anything that any of us had ever experienced and making more money than any of us had ever seen. We were the toast of the town for the moment. I slowed down, and Vince saw me coming the other way. I said, “Hey, man, what’s up? How are you doing?” Vince said, “I’m miserable.” I said, “Me, too.” TAGSJon FavreauL.A.

News / US withdrawal from Iran deal could have ‘significant’ impact on transport and logistics

first_imgShahid Rajaee Port A similar commentary from insurer North P&I Club added: “The decision by President Trump announced on 8 May to cease the US participation in the JCPOA and to begin re-imposing US nuclear-related sanctions is likely to have significant ramifications for maritime trade with Iran and the insurance of such trade.“As the sanctions relief introduced by the US pursuant to the JCPOA focused to a large extent on the relaxation of secondary sanctions and thus permitted non-US persons to trade more freely with Iran, the re-imposition of these secondary sanctions will have the opposite effect,” it said.The US decision could affect scores of firms, according to the recent Transport Intelligence report Middle East Logistics Investments Opportunities, published before Trump’s decision this week.“Following the removal of UN and EU sanctions in January 2016, international business has flocked to Iran en masse. In the logistics industry, this includes airlines, container lines, freight forwarders and international road freight providers linking with Europe.“Outside of logistics, numerous major manufacturers, especially in the oil & gas sectors, automotive and renewables sectors have ramped up operations there.“However, The Trump administration has taken a hostile stance to the country’s leadership. The US government still has in force numerous unilateral sanctions, largely prohibiting US companies doing business with Iran,” it said.It noted that Maersk relaunched services to country, which it called a 1.4m teu market, in October 2016, while MSC, CMA CGM, Evergreen and Hyundai all returned the year before.“In a nutshell, container lines have returned en masse.“A similar story applies for air freight. Many major European airlines have resumed services to Iran. KLM commenced in October 2016, IAG Cargo in September and Air France in April.“In addition, Iran has ordered 80 jets from Boeing and 100 from Airbus, the country’s first planes acquired from Western manufacturers since 1979.”From air transport media outlets it would appear that both Boeing and Airbus are resigned to losing these contracts.TOMORROW: The Loadstar examines the impact on freight forwarders The response of the remaining countries to the US decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal will likely determine whether non-US maritime and freight forwarding companies can continue trading with the country.The JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] was signed by Iran, the EU, and the P5+1 – the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (China, France, Russia, UK and the US) plus Germany.Nigel Carden, deputy chairman for the UK Club Managers Thomas Miller P&I, said: “The decision is expected to have significant implications for maritime trade with Iran and the insurance of such trade.“However, a full assessment of the likely impact of the decision will only be possible following receipt of clarification of the position of the remaining JCPOA partners, who have recently reaffirmed their support for the JCPOA, together with further clarification from the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) in relation to the management of the “wind-down” periods envisaged under the decision.”center_img By Gavin van Marle 10/05/2018last_img read more

first_imgFGCU experiences large scale power outage on campus May 28, 2021 FORT MYERS, Fla.– For FGCU Head Men’s Basketball Coach Michael Fly, recruiting new players to his program over the last 15 months has not been easy. “The last year and a half really we’ve been recruiting guys and taking commitments and signing guys without ever meeting them in person” said Fly. At the onset of the pandemic, the NCAA instituted a ban known as a dead period on all in person recruiting. Coaches could not leave campus to recruit while prospective recruits could not visit campuses. “It’s hard because you’re not spending that kind of quality time with them,” said Fly. Gov. DeSantis signs bill barring transgender females from women’s sports June 2, 2021 AdvertisementTags: FGCUsports Advertisement“They’re not spending quality time with your players, which I think is an important part of the recruiting process.”Instead, coaches gave virtual tours to their recruits while they relied on game film to evaluate them. Throughout the last 15 months the NCAA continued to extend its dead period until finally allowing it to expire at midnight, on Tuesday morning.  FGCU invites 2020 graduates back for in-person Grad Walk May 29, 2021 AdvertisementRecommended ArticlesBrie Larson Reportedly Replacing Robert Downey Jr. As The Face Of The MCURead more81 commentsGal Gadot Reportedly Being Recast As Wonder Woman For The FlashRead more29 comments With the dead period now over, coaches immediately welcomed recruits back to campus, such as North Fort Myers High School sophomore Levontai Summersett. “It’s a totally different feeling from talking over the phone,” said Summersett. Just days after the NCAA’s dead period expired, Summersett was in Atlanta taking an unofficial visit to Georgia Tech and to meet with the Yellowjackets’ football coaches. “I can’t explain it.

first_imgJamaica, Cuba to Sign MoU UncategorizedDecember 15, 2008 RelatedJamaica, Cuba to Sign MoU RelatedJamaica, Cuba to Sign MoU RelatedJamaica, Cuba to Sign MoUcenter_img Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Jamaica will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Cuba within the next few weeks, which will provide for joint destination marketing and airlift arrangements between the Caribbean island states.Tourism Minister, Edmund Bartlett speaking at a media forum on issues affecting Jamaica’s tourism sector at the Creative Production and Training Centre (CPTC) in Kingston on Thursday (Dec. 11), said the MoU evolved out of negotiations, which Prime Minister Bruce Golding commenced with the Cuban administration earlier this year, when he led a delegation, which included the Tourism Minister, to that Spanish-speaking nation.“We started the negotiations, and the Foreign Affairs team, along with a team from my Ministry, visited Cuba again. about September, and we are ready now (to sign the MoU),” Mr. Bartlett explained.The Minister informed that the agreement will facilitate the “marrying” of both countries as destinations of choice for visitors.“Cuba has very strong European traffic at the moment. Perhaps 60 per cent of the Cuban traffic is out of Europe, for example, there are about 100,000 Italians that go to Cuba every year. The Europeans have the luxury of vacation time. they get three weeks or more,” he said, noting that they could spent some of them time in Cuba and Jamaica.Mr. Bartlett advised that Jamaica Vacations (JamVac), an agency of the Tourism Ministry, which has responsibility for developing new travel gateways for Jamaica, will be working with entities that co-ordinate flights out of Europe into Cuba, to facilitate code sharing arrangements with Air Jamaica.In the meantime, he said that Jamaican could benefit from the possible lifting of the United States’ economic embargo on Cuba.“Jamaica and Cuba, as you know, enjoy a good relationship, and in our marketing, we have looked beyond the opening up of Cuba, and. completed (the) Memorandum of Understanding. We see Cuba’s opening, not as a threat, but as an opportunity for co-marketing and for regional cooperation,” Mr. Bartlett stated.last_img read more

His Yew Tree consortium is set to get a bigger chunk of Aston after it renogotiated the terms of the fundraising this month.In January, Stroll had agreed to pay US$239 million for a 16.7-per-cent stake in Aston Martin, and inject US$72.8 million in short-term funding in the company. Now his group is expected to net a 25-per-cent stake for just US$210 million, after it injects the marque with US$112 million in short-term funding.RELATED advertisement First Look: 2021 Aston Martin DBXThe investment “gives the necessary stability to reset the business for its long-term future,” Stroll said. “We have a clear plan to make this happen,” including Aston Martin entering an F1 works team next season.While the coronavirus pandemic could dent demand, the company says its order book “remains significant,” including over 2,000 commitments for the DBX SUV. The company is banking on the US$189,000 DBX selling in higher volumes than the stylish sports cars made famous in the James Bond movies. Deliveries of the DBX are planned to begin in summer.

That’s made it impossible to come up with a model for a “reasonable worse case downside,” it said.“Taking into account the proceeds of the capital raise, the company is of the opinion that the group does not have sufficient working capital to meet its requirements for 12 months” from February, when it published the original prospectus for the Stroll bailout, it said late Monday.

US operators push for staffing boost

first_img Diana Goovaerts Apps A coalition of US operator groups urged President Joe Biden and Congress to prioritise skills training for telecommunications jobs, arguing many more workers are needed to meet the demands of 5G network rollouts.In a letter, US Telecom, the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA), the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) and others said next-generation deployments were expected to create 850,000 new direct jobs by 2025, but warned “our American workforce is not currently ready to fill them”.They pressed for upcoming broadband legislation to include “support for employers to expand registered apprenticeships” and cover certification costs for workers. The groups also sought assistance for educational programmes covering “broadband and network engineering, network deployment and field activities, and cybersecurity”.“The stakes are high. Without a properly trained 5G workforce, China can use centralised authority to quickly focus labour resources to beat us to the finish line.”Staffing has been an ongoing challenge for operators in the country: the Federal Communications Commission and NATE flagged expected shortages as a key issue in the run up to 5G deployments.
