Programas de entrevistas da TV viraram um grande playground

Será que é mesmo hora do Jô parar? E cadê a Marília na TV?

Será que é mesmo hora do Jô parar? E cadê a Marília na TV?

Hoje, em meio a tantos programas de entrevistas, estreados com tanto barulho e celebração, o que mais tem chamado atenção é a superficialidade dos seus apresentadores e até a quase nenhuma importância da maioria dos convidados.

Tudo virou uma grande brincadeira, com ninguém mais interessado em conversar a sério ou abordar questões com maior profundidade.

Como requisito primeiro, o convidado tem que ser alguém que aceite entrar na roda e, se for caso, se submeter até ao papel de perfeito idiota. Muito mais show, do que talk.

E isso num país em que já tivemos, Silveira Sampaio, lá no começo, depois Ferreira Netto, Roberto D’Ávila, Marília Gabriela e Jô Soares, todos com excelente base cultural. O quadro atual até assusta um pouco. Parece que não há mais interesse em se conversar a sério.

Vivemos todos, inclusive o mundo da TV, irresponsavelmente num grande playground.

Será que é mesmo hora do Jô parar? E cadê a Marília?

Novela do apagão do analógico em Brasília entra nos momentos finais

Resultado de imagem para TV Verdes Mares digital

Na segunda-feira que vem (24), sairá uma nova pesquisa sobre o percentual de aparelhos habilitados para receber o digital no Distrito Federal e cidades do entorno.

O seu resultado poderá determinar o desligamento na quarta-feira, 26.

A última pesquisa, realizada em setembro, foi interpretada de maneira diferente pelas TVs, com números que entendem ser de 79%, contra 85% conforme preferem as teles.

A tendência é que o Governo desligue com 90%, três abaixo do que a lei estipula.

Confirmando-se o desligamento em 90%, cerca de 120 mil domicílios de toda a região serão impedidos de ver televisão, a partir da próxima semana.

Uma medida altamente impopular, ainda que tenha havido, e isso todos assumem, falha grave na distribuição de cerca de 80 mil conversores. E a próxima etapa, em março do ano que vem, será São Paulo.

Mudanças no “JR” e troca do logo são novidades da Record para novembro

O novo logotipo da Record só será lançado em 24 de novembro, juntamente com algumas mudanças no seu principal informativo.

A ideia era lançar no dia do aniversário, em 27 de setembro, mas o atraso se justifica, pelos seguintes motivos:

1º – naquela ocasião, a Globo promovia sua grade para este semestre.

2º – a Record estava envolvida com a produção de debates municipais.

3º – e, por último, a emissora está se preparando para lançar, também no dia 24 de novembro, o novo “Jornal da Record”, com alterações em cenário, bancada, vinhetas…

De qualquer forma, a mudança no logo ainda é motivo de muita insatisfação.

Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has started flight tests of its Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) program at the company’s Moses Lake Flight Test Centre just outside Washington State in the United States.

The company said in a statement flight test aircraft FTA-1 successfully completed a three-hour-and-18-minute flight on Monday, October 17.

The aircraft, with its distinctive pointed nose, took off from Grant County International Airport at 1320 local time and touched down at 1638.

FTA-1 was ferried from Mitsubishi’s Nagoya facility to Moses Lake at the end of September. The company planned to have four of the MRJ’s five prototypes based in the US for flight testing as part of efforts to receive certification of the aircraft from US regulators.

The MRJ, which competes with Bombardier’s CSeries and Embraer’s E-jet family in the less-than-100-seats market, made its first flight on November 12 2015.

However, Mitsubishi suspended the flight test program shortly after the maiden flight for three months due to the need to complete some structural work and software upgrades on the airframe.

The aircraft, powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1200 geared turbofan engines, is available in either the 90-seat MRJ90 or 70-seat MRJ70 model.

In December 2015, Mitsubishi delayed first delivery of the MRJ – Japan’s first locally-produced commercial passenger aircraft since the country stopped making the YS-11 in 1974 – by a year to the second quarter of 2018.

To date, the MRJ has received 233 firm orders, 170 options and 24 purchase rights for the aircraft from the likes of ANA, which is the launch customer, Japan Airlines, Eastern Air Lines Group, US-based Skywest, Trans States Holdings and Air Mandalay.

Inside story on Nikolai Topor-Stanley’s new club

Nikolai Topor-Stanley has joined UAE club Hatta.

Nikolai Topor-Stanley faces a massive challenge after his move from Western Sydney Wanderers. Asian football expert John Duerden has the inside word on the ACL winner’s new UAE club, Hatta.

Just weeks after an international meeting in qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the ties between football in the United Arab Emirates and Australia continue to grow with the news that Nikolai Topor-Stanley has signed for Hatta Club – nicknamed “The Tornadoes” – in the Arabian Gulf League this week.

The former Wanderers star joins Caltex Socceroo star Mark Milligan in the UAE and is the 15th signing that the ambitious Hatta have made since they earned promotion to the top flight with a game to spare in April.

Hatta, based around 120kms to the south-east of Dubai, is starting out its first ever campaign in the top tier of a professional UAE league and it really wants to stay at the top.

And the big Australian is needed.

The club’s league form has been mixed so far with three games bringing a win, a draw and a loss. But the Tornadoes have conceded 14 goals in their last four league and cup games.

That makes for ominous reading, and surprising too as the team’s first game back in the top flight was a goalless draw against Al Wahda, one of the country’s top teams that also possesses serious firepower.

It was a display in which Hatta worked incredibly hard defensively to keep a clean sheet.

After three successive 4-0 losses (two in the cup, not a priority this season, and one in the league), Hatta needed to bounce back.

“Teams that get used to losing continue losing, and teams that become accustomed to winning continue winning,” said coach Waleed Obaid.

“We need to get our first win and then we can move onwards and upwards from there, putting together a winning streak.”

A 2-1 win over fellow top tier new boys Al Ittihad was much needed but there is still much to be done.

Fans are hopeful that the mixed start to the season is a result of a much-changed team needing time to gel and build an understanding rather than it being because of a too-big gulf in class between the first and second divisions.

The Brazilian trio of Jair Da Silva, Tassio Santos and Rodrigo Silva did much to help Hatta to promotion last season but have all left.

In have come midfielders Mihai Radut and Adrian Ropotan from Romania. Other additions are Burkina Faso striker Issiaka Ouedraogo and Yaseen Al Bakhit from Jordan.

Mohammad Malallah was one of ten Emirati players to join the club and is under no illusions as to how tough the season will be.

“Everything is difficult when you start,” he said. “Hatta has brought in many new players. But the mood is good even though the situation is difficult for the coach.

“Inshallah we will stay up, everyone at the club is working hard to achieve that and I think we can do something.”

There is plenty of experience in the team that is geared towards surviving the first season.

Topor-Stanley may be 31 but will be one of the younger members of the defence. It is his leadership and defensive qualities that are needed by the club.

 

He should not expect Western Sydney Wanderers’ style massive support, either.

The club will be happy to reach four figures at home but there will be more than enough challenges for its new defender.
