Pasadena Weekly - Out Of This World

Octopus Broods Eggs For Record 4.5 Years : Discovery News

Tweet it! SHARE IT! What if Han Solo was the front-and-center star of the original Star Wars movies, and what if his team consisted of a talking raccoon, a mutant tree-man, a hulking giant and a hot green woman, instead of a Wookie named Chewbacca, a couple of robots and a clueless brother-sister duo? Thats basically the question asked by Guardians of the Galaxy, and the answer is you would still have a pretty good time, if not a timeless classic. Guardians is perhaps the summers most original film, with the folks at Marvel and Disney studios taking a chance on a big-budget ($170 million) mix of sci-fi action and comedy. Part of the risk really comes from the fact that Guardians has no big movie stars in its cast of on-screen humans, centering instead on the charms of veteran TV actor Chris Pratt of Parks and Recreation, with Bradley Cooper providing the voice of Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel serving almost as an in-joke as the voice of the grunting tree-man, Groot, and Zoe Saldana playing the green hero after establishing her bona fides playing a hot blue hero Avatar. Pratt stars as Peter Quill, who has given himself the nickname Star-Lord and loves to brag about it to everyone he sees. The film opens with Peter as a young boy watching his mother die in a hospital before he runs outside and is inexplicably zapped by a spaceship and hurtled into the heavens. Now an adult, he is a junk collector working with a group called the Ravagers in search of a metallic orb that is wanted badly by a diverse group of creatures aside from his boss, Yondu (Michael Rooker). The green woman, Gamora, is first on that list, as a highly trained assassin under orders from an evil overlord named Thanos to grab the orb at all costs. The sarcastic Rocket and his sidekick Groot are also in hot pursuit, though the four quickly decide to team up rather than fight when they realize they need each others particular skills and can split a $4 billion bounty if they deliver the orb to the highest bidder in 24 hours. There are almost too many more creatures and characters, as the movie bounds from one weirdly named galactic location to another at a sometimes confusing pace. But the movie builds momentum and tension well, with the last half-hour a slam-bang barrel of fun that is much less serious than the climactic battles of just about every Marvel movie outside of The Avengers itself. The wizard behind it all is James Gunn, who directed the film and co-wrote the script with Nicole Perlman, based on a series of comics written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. Those comics were a daring experiment in themselves, an attempt to create an alternate form of superheroes that served almost as a spoof of The Avengers but with just enough plotline to be compelling as well as funny. Gunn has done a couple of my favorite movies in the past decade the highly unique comedy-horror mash-up Slither and the indescribably original Super, in which Rainn Wilson of The Office plays a put-upon nebbish who decides to gain revenge on society by becoming a superhero vigilante and winds up taking things way too far.

They had gone into the red octopus's tummy. The then out-of-place octopus was eventually released into Monterey Bay, but the species will be represented by others in the new exhibition. Best Ocean Animal Photos Monterey Bay Aquarium/Tyson Rininger View Caption + The wonderpus octopus is native to the Indo Pacific region. Each individual has unique white markings on its head, allowing scientists to track individual specimens.

"I did '24,' it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze said. "Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world.

Where were the many Marvel superheroines who could go toe-to-toe with the villains and allies equally? Black Widow ( Scarlett Johansson ) does a heck of a job, but in a team full of men, some element was missing. Joss told the Hey U Guys that the additional women will hopefully offer "a more balanced presence throughout the movie" while allowing the core dynamic of "grown-ups who act like children and dress like clowns and punch each other" to continue on.

Wonderground Gallery Joins Marketplace Co-op At Downtown Disney Marketplace

dissss843723 One of my favorite places to shop at Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort in California is the WonderGround Gallery . Opened in June 2012 , the distinctive and eclectic contemporary art location showcases unique art collections by some incredibly talented artists. I have great news for fans who love this location like I do. A small assortment of WonderGround Gallery items was recently added to the Marketplace Co-Op in Downtown Disney Marketplace . Located just inside the main entrance of the shop, this new addition contains a handful of prints, mugs, magnets, postcards and more from various artists originally featured in the California location. You may recall that the Marketplace Co-Op was designed to be a testing space for new retail products, store concepts and guest experiences. This small addition is a great example of the flexible space inside the location. During my recent visit, I saw a new ?Welcome? sign inside the shop (just look at those letters!). I love the ?The Village Marketplace their website Co-Operative? label found on the side of the orange crates. Benches were also added to the center area between the boutiques. If you are unable to visit the Marketplace Co-Op in Florida or the WonderGround Gallery in California, you can find select items from the location on our Disney Parks online store .

Seaworld Taps Coca-cola Breakthrough Plantbottle Technology To Create First Consumer Cup

SeaWorld Taps Coca-Cola Breakthrough Plantbottle Technology to Create First Consumer Cup by Staff nullComments Being green is oh-so refreshing. That was the message today as SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment debuted the first refillable plastic cup made from plant-based materials. Now available in all SeaWorld and Busch Gardens parks across the U.S., the reusable, 100-percent recyclable plastic cup is manufactured using proprietary PlantBottle packaging technology from the company's beverage partner, Coca-Cola. "Working together, our two companies are using our resources and reach to inspire people to make a difference," said SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment Corporate Vice President of Culinary Operations Andrew Ngo. "Our friends at The Coca-Cola Company share our commitment to conservation, our passion for the planet, and our innovative approach to consumer experiences. Even more important, this appeals to our guests, who expect and reward recycling and sustainability." PlantBottle packaging swaps traditional plastic resins with natural sugars found in plants. Fewer fossil-based ingredients mean a smaller carbon footprint. SeaWorld?s switch to PlantBottle plastic in its refillable cups is expected to remove 35 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually -- the equivalent of saving more than 80 barrels of oil a year. The unique PlantBottle technology is popular packaging for Coca-Cola?s bottled beverages. SeaWorld takes this technology to a new level, creating the first commercially available consumer product: a refillable plastic cup. Since The Coca-Cola Company introduced PlantBottle technology in 2009 as the first recyclable PET plastic bottle made partially from plants, more than 450,000 barrels of oil have been saved. And, more than 20 billion PlantBottle packages have been distributed in 31 countries worldwide. "Once we fully realized the power of PlantBottle technology, we knew it had real-world, global applications well beyond our own products," said Scott Vitters, general manager, PlantBottle packaging platform, The Coca-Cola Company. "This collaboration with SeaWorld demonstrates that PlantBottle technology can be applied anywhere that PET plastic is traditionally used, but with a lighter footprint on the planet.? Colorful in-park murals and point-of-purchase displays promoting environmental advocacy will help inform park guests of the new product. SeaWorld eventually plans to use Coca-Cola's PlantBottle technology in the manufacture of many of its souvenir cups and is actively exploring opportunities for its potential use in the development of other merchandise. SeaWorld and http://disneybackstage.weebly.com/ Coca-Cola have also partnered on two other initiatives that promote conservation and sustainability: - In 2013 SeaWorld introduced the Cup That Cares-- a reusable cup with an embedded RFID chip that interacts with Coca-Cola Freestyle dispensers in the theme parks and calculates the amount of carbon guests keep from the environment by refilling their cups. - All fountain drinks are served in paper cups made from 85 percent renewable resources. This is a sizeable commitment: 14.6 million paper cups are used each year throughout the company's 11 theme parks.

California Adventure roller coaster stopped due to 'technical matter' | abc7.com

Next years Special Olympics World Games are the first to be held in the United States in 16 years, with the World Summer Games most recently hosted in Athens, Shanghai and Dublin. The upcoming Los Angeles World Games will be the largest sporting event hosted by the city since the 1984 Olympic Summer Games. The 2015 Special Olympics World Games, with the unparalleled spirit, enthusiasm, teamwork, joy and displays of courage and skill that are the hallmarks of all Special Olympics events, will feature 25 Olympic-style sports in venues throughout the Los Angeles region. Before any competition begins, 100 host towns from across Southern California will welcome participating athletes with three days of local cultural experiences. In 365 days we will have the opportunity to raise the awareness that leads to acceptance and inclusion for 200 million people worldwide with intellectual disabilities, said Patrick McClenahan, President and Chief Executive Officer of LA2015, the Games Organizing Committee. There is still much more to do, but momentum is on our side, and these Games will change the lives of people around the world who are mistreated and excluded because theyre different. In addition to the sporting events, the Special Olympics World Games also provide participating athletes with access to the Special Olympics Healthy Athletes program. Through this program, volunteer healthcare professionals will provide free screenings and health services for the athletes on site. To date, the Special Olympics Healthy Athletes program has already resulted in health clinics in 54 new locations and care for more than 11,000 more athletes with intellectual disabilities as well as health education for nearly 10,000 athletes, family members and coaches. For athletes like me, the one-year countdown brings the excitement of the competition of the World Games a little closer to reality, said Debi Anderson, World Games Global Messenger. The time for all of the athletes to shine and show the world what we can do, will be here before we know it.

Disney World Monorail Evacuated After Power Outage - Cnn.com

Weather caused the power outage, but it did not appear a lightning strike was responsible, Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said. Wahler said about 120 people were on the monorail, and all were safely evacuated. Lily Mock said the sky was filled with dark clouds when she boarded the monorail from Magic Kingdom to Epcot. "When we sat there, we heard a lot of thunder and saw a few bolts of lightning," the 15-year-old said. Suddenly, the train came to a stop. Without the air conditioner running, the train car got pretty hot pretty quickly. Over the next 90 minutes, Mock, her family and the other stranded visitors passed the time by chatting with each other and messaging friends. No one seemed to panic, she said.

A Wet And Wild Rafting Excursion With Adventures By Disney In Costa Rica

CRR557641 Our rain dance seemed to finally scare off the clouds and bring out the sun here in Costa Rica! Continuing on our teen-focused Adventures by Disney trip, we set off on our white water rafting adventure along the beautiful Tenorio River . While shooting down the roaring rapids and bobbing over gushing waters, I captured some great action shots of our teens rafting down the Tenorio. I have to say, they braved the rapids really well (I?ll let this photo speak for itself)! After our journey through the river, we were treated to some incredible views in Guanacaste, with views overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The natural beauty of this place is absolutely incredible and provided us with some great photo opportunities. With the weather conditions finally improving, our teen photographers started snapping away at photos orlando packages of the magnificent sunset! As another action-filled day came to an end, our teens showed off their creative side with some really neat late-night light painting on the beach. Tomorrow we will be on a catamaran adventure, where the teens will be snorkeling and shooting some great photos with their Nikon Coolpix water-proof cameras.

Disney We've ranked the Disney princesses . We've ranked the Disney villains . We think it's high time we talk about Disney princes. But we just don't want to judge them in our usual style. No, we're digging a little deeper for this one. We picked our top 14 favorite Disney men and ranked their attractiveness, personality and wealth status each on a scale from one to five. Then we added them all up for an overall score, the highest being 15. We also factored in bonus traits, i.e., Aladdin has a pet monkey and a flying carpet, which we think is awesome. So, even if their overall score is higher than another prince, we considered other aspects of their lives when we ranked them. And yes, some of these characters aren't actually princes, but we decided to include people without proper royal lineage, because they are male leads and love interests, and some of them even eventually become princes through marriage.

Sunday, July 13, 2014 | Posted: 10:00 p.m. Sunday, July 13, 2014 Disney World monorail shut down by weather-related power outage; passengers evacuated Sponsored Links LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. About 120 passengers were evacuated from a Walt Disney World monorail Sunday evening due to a weather-related power outage. The monorail stopped on a stretch of track between the Transportation and Ticket Center and Disneys Wilderness Lodge. Workers spent about 30 minutes trying to restart the monorail to return it to a station to unload the passengers, officials said. Once those measures proved unsuccessful, the Reedy Creek Fire Department spent an hour evacuating the passengers from the monorail using a special stairwell device and other vehicles equipped with platforms, Fire Chief Bo Jones said. No one was injured, and there were no medical emergencies. Once lowered to the ground, the passengers were escorted to busses provided by Disney.

Disney World monorail evacuated after outage | National News - WGAL Home

Monorail-Disney Suddenly, with the monorail about 30 feet in the air, the train came to a halt. "It wasn't a jolting stop, but it did stop really fast -- the monorail glided to a stop," Lily said. Without the air conditioner running, the train car got pretty hot over the next 90 minutes. As they waited for firefighters to help them off, the stranded visitors passed the time by chatting with each other and messaging friends. No one seemed to panic, Lily said. Firefighters later managed to pop open the top hatch of the train car -- but opted to escort passengers out through the doors, using a lift. That actually disappointed Lily. "I kind of wanted to go through the top, I thought it'd be fun," she said. Despite the mishap, Lily said she'll definitely be back -- especially after getting free passes for the inconvenience. And for a teen who visits Disney World at least three times a year, the experience was actually pretty cool.

New Merchandise On The Horizon For Fall 2014 At Disney Parks

othtra443244One of my favorite articles to write for the Disney Parks Blog gives readers a glimpse into future merchandise development (who wouldn?t want to travel through time?). Introduced in early 2012 , these semi-regular stories are filled with things that make me beyond happy. Here is a look at some of my favorites coming to Disney Parks later this year. I still remember the day that Aaron Babcock, merchandiser for home and decorative goods, showed me the two metal trays pictured above. I did a double take as I thought they were vintage finds from some antique shop. Aaron is the developer behind those amazing items found in Disney Centerpiece at the Marketplace Co-Op in Downtown Disney Marketplace in Florida. He stepped up his game with these trays that will be placed next to my vintage EPCOT Center trays from the early 1980s. Look for them this fall at the respective Resort destinations in California and Florida . I think I found the next two shirts that I will be getting for my fiancée and me. They were inspired by the popular ?I?ll Be Your? Mickey and Minnie companion T-shirts released in 2012 . The shirts are coming this October to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. I fell out of my chair when I saw the new Vinylmation ? Eachz set coming this fall featuring Mabel from the hit Disney XD show ?Gravity Falls.? I wasn?t surprised to learn that Thomas Scott was the Disney Design Group artist behind these limited edition figures. Thomas, who once dressed up as the character Uncle Stan for Halloween, recommended I watch the show. I?m now hooked and can?t wait for season two, which debuts on Disney Channel on August 1 at 9:00 p.m. Presented in a mystery box (how fitting), the figure on the left will be more common to find (edition size 1,350), while the figure on the right is more rare (edition size 150). Finally, I spotted these adorable new Disney Villains baby plush. Maleficent will be joined by baby Cruella de Vil this November, while Ursula will be released early next year. Which things are you most excited to see? Please share in the comments below.
