“Mundo Novo”, novela na fila das 18h, escrita pelos estreantes Alessandro Marson e Thereza Falcão, vai se ambientar no período colonial.
Algo que obrigará sua produção a observar cuidados na seleção do elenco, porque serão muitos personagens específicos, como índios e nomes históricos.
Sabendo dessa dificuldade e fugindo um pouco dos padrões normais, “Mundo Novo” vai antecipar seu início de trabalhos e sair em busca desses perfis mais difíceis de fechar.
Até em função disso, na Globo já se planejam viagens a Manaus e Belém para selecionar atores locais.
O investimento em novos talentos é uma prática que vai se tornando a cada dia mais comum na teledramaturgia da Globo. “Velho Chico”, por exemplo, pode ser apontada como um grande celeiro.

A Globo programou para os dias 29 de setembro, no primeiro turno e 28 de outubro, segundo, os seus debates entre os candidatos às prefeituras.
Todos os detalhes já foram estabelecidos com os representantes dos partidos.
Como já noticiado neste espaço, a Bandeirantes que tradicionalmente realiza a “abertura” dos trabalhos, promoverá seus debates nos dias 26 de agosto e 7 de outubro.
Em se tratando da praça São Paulo, certamente comandarão os debates, pela Globo – Chico Pinheiro; Band, Ricardo Boechat, e Record, Celso Freitas.

Julianne Trevisol trocou a Record pela Globo e foi imediatamente aproveitada
Até com uma insistência muito além do normal, são informadas as não renovações de contratos de atores com a Record.
Em alguns momentos, verifica-se, há a tentativa de se fazer um certo espalhafato em cima do assunto.
Nos dias de agora, não só a Record, mas também a Globo, têm mantido em seus bancos de atores aquilo que julgam essencial e imprescindível para as suas produções.
Não está sendo mais factível a manutenção de tanta gente, a maioria parada, como aconteceu tempos atrás.
Devemos entender como uma ação natural do próprio mercado de trabalho, as entradas e saídas de atores e atrizes nas diversas emissoras, em espaços de tempo muito menores. E sem as restrições que existiam. No lugar das picuinhas do passado, as necessidades passam a ser relevadas.
Nada mais lógico e racional, até porque não tem mais como ser de outra maneira.

A United States Marine Corps (USMC) MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor has conducted six deck landings on board HMAS Canberra on while the ship was taking part in Exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2016 off the north-east coast of Hawaii.
The landings on July 12, conducted as part of a US Navy and USMC aviation integration program to clear its rotary-wing assets for operations from the new Royal Australian Navy’s new amphibious assault ships, mark the first time a V-22 has landed on board an Australian LHD.
Sistership to HMAS Canberra and Adelaide, the Spanish Navy’s Juan Carlos I, has operated MV-22s on board over the past year, including an embarkation of the type.
The Canberra will likely see Marine Corps AH-1Z Viper, UH-1Y, UH-1Z and potentially CH-53 helicopters cross its deck during the course of the five-week-long exercise, but F-35B and AV-8B “jump jets” are not part of the integration program.
The RAN aims to achieve full operating capability (FOC) for the two LHDs in mid-2017.

A $2.5 million incentive payment from the South Australian government has enticed engineering support services company Babcock International Group to move its Australasian headquarters to Adelaide.
Babcock Australasia chief executive Craig Lockhart said the new headquarters in Adelaide’s central business district and would bring together the different parts of the business and was a key step in its strategic growth plan for the next decade.
As part of the deal, Babcock’s aviation businesses, as well as Babcock Mission Critical Services Australasia (previously headquartered in Brisbane) and Babcock Offshore Services Australasia would all be based in Adelaide.
“South Australia was the logical choice for our new Australasian headquarters, and the Babcock Mission Critical Services base, because it expands our existing presence here and centralises our helicopter operations in Australia,” Lockhart said in a statement.
“We can see that there’s a great pool of talent in South Australia, particularly in engineering, and there are promising synergies with the significant and growing defence industry.
“We appreciate the support of the State Government and Investment Attraction South Australia in helping us to consolidate and expand our operations in Adelaide.”
Babcock Mission Critical Services Australasia, which provides helicopter support Emergency Medical (EMS), Search and Rescue (SAR), surveillance operations, law enforcement, aerial work and Marine Pilot Transfer (MPT) with a fleet of 20 helicopters based in Queensland, South Australia and Victoria, was previously known as Australian Helicopters before it rebranded in June.
Similarly, Babcock Offshore Services Australasia, which supported its oil and gas clients, was the new name for what was previously known as Bond Helicopters.
“Becoming Babcock means a lot more than bringing both subsidiaries under the one logo,” Lockhart said at the time.
“It enables all the benefits that come with a local alignment with a global brand; it encourages better internal co-operation, higher levels of employee engagement and greater cohesion around our culture and values.”
Lockhart was joined by South Australian Trade Minister Martin Hamilton-Smith in London for the official announcement.
“Having Babcock’s key decision-makers locally-based means South Australia will be front of mind for any future investment plans as the company seeks to expand,” Hamilton said in a statement.
“This positions the state favourably as the company seeks further expansion opportunities and will create a considerable multiplier effect for the local economy.”
Babcock said the $2.5 million payment from the state government would be spent on “local goods and services, including premises fit outs, recruitment, IT, consulting, training and induction”.
The relocation comes after the Australian Government said in April French company DCNS had been selected as the preferred international partner for the design of the Future Submarine, beating bids from ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) of Germany and the Japanese government.
The 12 conventionally powered Shortfin Barracuda Block 1A submarines would be constructed at Osborne, northwest of Adelaide.
Premier Jay Weatherill said the Babcock move was part of transforming the state’s economy “towards a high-tech future”.
“By making Adelaide their head office in Australasia, Babcock is playing an important part in helping us achieve this,” the Premier said in a statement.
“This company has had a big role in the past in the Collins class submarine and will have a continuing role in sustaining the Collins class until the Future Submarines project arrives.”
Babcock said it had about 700 staff in Australia and New Zealand working in the defence, aviation, ports and engineering consultancy sectors.
Globally, the company generated annual revenues of A$8 billion, was present in 16 countries and had more than 35,000 employees.
In June, Babcock Offshore Services opened a new operations centre at Darwin Airport, where it has based two Sikorski S-92 helicopters. It also has a base in regional Western Australia. Clients included PTTEP Australasia, Woodside, ConocoPhillips, Eni, INPEX and CGG, Babcock said.
The Northern Territory government said the time the investment in the new facility was $11 million.
QantasLink is dropping nonstop Melbourne-Coffs Harbour and Sydney-Hervey Bay flights from early August.
The last Melbourne-Coffs Harbour flight, which is served once a week on Saturdays with Boeing 717 equipment, will be on August 6, with affected passengers booked to travel after that date transferred onto services via Sydney, Qantas said in a note to travel agents.
Meanwhile, QantasLink’s twice weekly Sydney-Hervey Bay flights, which operate on Saturdays and Sundays with a mix of turboprop and jet equipment, were scheduled to end on August 7. Instead of the nonstop service, the airline was rebooking passengers on flights via Brisbane.
Alternatively, passengers can change their flights to a new destination, receive a full refund or receive a credit from the airline for use towards future travel, Qantas said.
Sydney-Hervey Bay is also served nonstop by Virgin Australia, while Tigerair Australia offers nonstop service between Melbourne and Coffs Harbour.
