Early Bird: Paltrow about her return to the screens. New limited edition Porsche. Postponement of the Tokyo Olympics is impossible
In an interview with Naomi Campbell, actress Gwyneth Paltrow talked about what's next in her acting career. Fans probably won't enjoy the news. For its 25th anniversary, Porsche comes with a new limited edition. Look forward to a glittering copper brown! Former Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori has responded to fans' concerns about the start of the Tokyo Olympics - what's the plan?
The 2021 census, which is scheduled to take place from 27 March to 11 May, is primarily designed as a virtual one, i.e. without the need of personal contact between people. Up to 88% of the Czech population, who have internet at home, can benefit from this option. Citizens will be able to fill in the electronic census form on their computer, tablet or mobile phone.
"The online method of census data collection is clearly more comfortable, faster and, most importantly, safer. In addition, it allows for other people in the household and outside it to be comfortably counted as well, including parents or grandparents who may fall into an epidemically endangered age group. It is also in their interest that I recommend everyone to enter their data online,"
Marek Rojíček, Chairman of the Czech Statistical Office appeals to Czech citizens. In a survey, about two thirds of the population expressed initial interest in the electronic form of census. However, given the current situation, the Czech Statistical Office assumes that there will be even greater interest. In the communication campaign of the entire project, emphasis will be placed on the online form as well. In 2020, 81% of the Czech population over the age of sixteen was actively using the internet.
Facebook has seen an increase in online violence
Facebook has seen a rise in signals indicating possible future acts of violence in an effort to challenge the outcome of the US presidential election since the siege of the Capitol last week. The signals Facebook has been monitoring included digital flyers promoting events, some of which featured calls to arms, or hate groups.
The FBI warned of armed protests planned for Washington and all 50 US capitals in the run-up to the inauguration. A Facebook spokeswoman said the pace of the company’s exchange of information with law enforcement officials had likewise increased since the protests at the Capitol.
Violent rhetoric on online platforms had already ramped up in the weeks before last week’s unrest as right-wing groups planned the assault, largely in open public view, according to researchers and public postings. On Monday, Facebook banned content promoting the phrase "stop the steal" which was connected with the armed protests by Trump's supporters. The company also blocked searches for "storm the Capitol" and flagged posts that included those phrases for further review.
Gwyneth Paltrow about her return to the screens
Gwyneth Paltrow said in a recent interview that she would return to acting only if her husband Brad Falchuck wrote the screenplay. Paltrow discussed this topic with Naomi Campbell in her YouTube show #NoFilterWithNaomi. Paltrow admitted that people were often asking her what would motivate her to return to acting. Looks like nothing but her husband.
Falchuck co-created and produced several television series, including Glee, American Horror Story, Scream Queens, Pose and The Politician. Paltrow starred in the last of these series, which aired on Netflix in 2019, a year after the pair had gotten married.
"I actually haven't been that comfortable being a public person or being in front of the camera even though I've done it for so long. There's a part of me that really feels shy and doesn't feel like I'm naturally an extrovert,"
Paltrow said. In 2020, she also starred in the Netflix documentary series "The Goob Lap"; her last film credit as an actress was in "Avengers: Endgame."
Postponing the Tokyo Olympics is out of question
Former Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori has responded to fans' concerns about the start of the Tokyo Olympics, which had to be postponed to July this year. To his dismay, Mori said the Tokyo Olympics would take place and that further postponement was "absolutely impossible" at this stage. In hopes to prevent such an outcome, the Olympic team in Tokyo introduced further protective measures so that they could continue with their preparations.
It has not yet been decided whether fans from overseas will be accepted at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The situation is topical and will largely depend on how the pandemic situation develops in the coming months. Currently, fans can expect the Tokyo Olympics to take place as scheduled in July this year, followed by the Paralympic Games in August. Although the committee continues to reassure the public of its strict pandemic regulations, the Japanese do not appear to be convinced.
"All I can say is that we will go ahead with our preparations. There will always be morning even after a long night. Let's work together to overcome this major challenge,"
said Yoshiro Mori.
Porsche comes with a limited edition: from zero to one hundred in four seconds
On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Porsche produced a limited edition car model called "Boxster 25 years". Under the hood, you'll find an engine from the GTS 4.0 model, and the car will be powered by a six-cylinder 4.0-liter engine. One of the most striking details of this Porsche are the Neodyme (glittery copper brown) finishes, applied to the side air intakes, the mono slat, front the bumper and the logo.
The German manufacturer, who alludes to the style of the original, produced an interior with a Bordeaux leather interior and matched it with a fabric convertible. The maximum speed for the limited edition model is 293 km/h, and thanks to the PDK transmission and the standard Sport Chrono package, it goes from zero to 100 km/h in lightning-fast four seconds. Only 1,250 pieces of this Boxster 25 have been produced worldwide and are now available to order.
That's all from us. Have a nice morning with a cup of good coffee, ND don't forget the words of Charles Maurice de Talleyrand:
