Good News Bad News (2020) Hindi Movie

Another group had been even more badly shaken: those who had not seen the explosion in person, but had consumed six or more hours of news coverage per day in the week afterwards. Bizarrely, knowing someone who had been injured or died, or having been in the vicinity as the bombs went off, were not as predictive of high acute stress.

Good News Bad News (2020) Hindi Movie

Ever since the first hints of a mysterious new virus began to emerge from China last year, televised news has seen record viewing figures, as millions diligently tune in for daily government briefings and updates on the latest fatalities, lockdown rules and material for their own armchair analysis.

So the next time you find yourself checking the headlines for the hundredth time that day, or anxiously scrolling through your social media feed, just remember: the news might be influencing you more than you bargained for.

In 1870, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, a former Confederate officer who served in the 3rd Texas Infantry, makes a meager living traveling from town to town in Texas and reading newspaper stories to local residents for an admission fee of ten cents. After departing Wichita Falls, Kidd comes across an overturned wagon on the road and finds the driver, a black freedman, had been lynched. He also finds a young white girl who calls herself Cicada and speaks Kiowa. Kidd learns from the girl's paperwork that she is Johanna Leonberger, who had been kidnapped and adopted by Kiowa six years earlier. Union Army troops discovered Johanna while dispersing a Kiowa camp and she was being taken to her living aunt and uncle by the freedman. A passing Union Army patrol instructs Kidd to take the girl to Union officials at an outpost in a town up the road. Kidd has little choice but to acquiesce.

At the town, Kidd is informed that the outpost's Bureau of Indian Affairs representative will be unavailable for three months. Kidd initially plans to leave Johanna in the care of friends Simon and Doris Boudlin, but accepts responsibility for returning the girl to her family in Castroville, some 400 miles away, after she recklessly tries to run away with a band of traveling Native Americans during a storm. In Dallas, Kidd stops at a local inn run by Ella Gannett, an intimate old acquaintance who speaks Kiowa and learns that Johanna's adoptive Native American family was also killed, making her "an orphan twice-over." After reading the news the next night, Kidd and Johanna are accosted by three ex-Confederate soldiers who want to purchase Johanna from him. Kidd refuses and flees with the girl, but the men pursue him into the wilderness. Despite being outgunned, Kidd is able to kill the men after Johanna points out that the dimes Kidd earned from his work could be used as makeshift ammunition for his shotgun.

As the pair continue their journey, their wagon is wrecked and their horses fatally injured when Kidd loses control on a steep road. Kidd and Johanna proceed on foot. After enduring the heat and a blinding sandstorm, they encounter a traveling group of Kiowa who give Johanna a horse. Saved by that gift, Kidd and Johanna eventually reach the Leonberger farmstead. Kidd reluctantly leaves Johanna with her aunt and uncle. He then continues to San Antonio to visit the grave of his wife Maria, who had died of cholera years ago while he was away serving in the Army, for the first time. As he bids farewell to Maria, Kidd realizes that Johanna had become family to him, and rides back to her and apologizes for leaving her behind. Johanna's aunt and uncle, though not uncaring, had her tied to a post to prevent Johanna from repeatedly running away. They permit Johanna to go with Kidd, with whom she is clearly much more happy. Later, Captain Kidd enthusiastically reads the news to an audience in a large hall with Johanna's assistance, and Kidd introduces her as his daughter, Johanna Kidd.

A. O. Scott of The New York Times gave a mixed review, writing that "this isn't a bad movie. The problem is that it's too nice a movie, too careful and compromised, as if its makers didn't trust the audience to handle the real news of the world."[27]

Ingraham called Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell "a bit nuts." Carlson, who famously demanded evidence from Powell on the air, privately used a vulgar epithet for women to describe her. A top network programming executive wrote privately that he did not believe the shows of Carlson, Hannity and Jeanine Pirro were credible sources of news.

Saudi Arabia banned child marriage in 2020, making 18 the minimum age to be married. In 2019, the government banned marriages for children under the age of 15. Before that, there were no age limits on marriage for boys or girls. The new ban has a loophole: teenagers under the age of 18 can still get married if they are granted approval by a special court. But it is still seen as positive news in such conservative countries, both of which have deep historical, religious and cultural roots.

The best part of my week was my daughter receiving news that she had been deferred to regular admission at her top college pick. Why would this be the best part of my week you ask? It became the best part of my week the next day when I saw how she responded to this news.

As a mother and an entrepreneur, I could not be more proud. I was proud she was courageous enough to risk her early decision application on something she really wanted but knew would be a stretch. I was even prouder that after she grieved the news of deferral she started taking action and did not give up. Someday someone will be lucky enough to have her on one of their finance teams. She is someone who works hard, takes risks, and picks up the pieces after disappointment and continues on. Isn't it wonderful when our children inspire us. Let us all take more risks for those BIG GOALS. #liveyourbestlife #noregrets

First coined in the 1970s by Dr George Gerbner, mean world syndrome revolves around the idea that we each develop a cognitive bias where, over time, we start to see the world as more dangerous than it actually is. Thought to develop due to long-term, moderate to heavy exposure to violence-related content through mass media (such as news reports and television shows), those who are affected may experience increased feelings of fear, anxiety, general pessimism, and even feel a heightened state of alertness thanks to the perception of threats around them.

Since the theory was first proposed, numerous studies have supported the hypothesis, with findings highlighting the emotional toll that violence-related content can have on us. But is there anything that we can do to help combat these negative effects, without cutting ourselves off from the latest news?

The all-pervasive media keeps us in a constant state of alert, from entertainment to the news. Thanks to increasingly sophisticated production values, our brains sometimes find it confusing to tell the difference between exciting fact and thrilling fiction. We get caught up in a cortisol loop, and begin to believe that dangers exist all around us in real life.

Another good option is to ensure there is balance to your social media streams, by also following positive news outlets, or those that give a broader view of current events. Carefully selecting our news sources can help to balance out the negativity that can be rife, and provide you with some much needed uplifting news and events to act as a buffer.

Although Clueless omits some elements from Austen's work, like Jane Fairfax, Box Hill, and the pianoforte debacle, the glib dialogue and whip-smart satire poke fun at the material-obsessed superficiality and self-interest of bored rich kids, much in the same way Austen's work satirized the ludicrous extravagances of the British landed gentry. With tongue-in-cheek acerbity, Austen's novel and Heckerling's film still manage to spotlight the overall good-heartedness and authenticity of the characters it parodies, even through accidental jokes that weren't in Clueless' script. Austen never took her stories too seriously, and Heckerling's film marches to a similar rhythm. Clueless succeeds as the best movie adaptation of Emma because it transforms the original material in unexpected ways, while maintaining the original themes, inherent likability, and essence of Austen's beloved characters.

TRANSCRIPT OF PROCEEDINGSOffice of the Assistant Secretary for Public AffairsOffice of Community Planning and Development451 7th Street, Southwest, Room 10130Washington, DC 20410-4000 FATHER HACALA: Good evening. What a wonderful gathering here this evening, it looks like standing room only. In the name of Secretary Cuomo and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, we welcome all of you, our friends and colleagues here this evening, thank you for joining us. I am Father Joe Hacala, Special Assistant to Secretary Cuomo for Outreach to Community and Faith Based Groups. This evenings Community 2020 Forum on Appalachia is part of an educational program initiated two years ago by Vice President Gore and Secretary Cuomo. It has dealt with great issues with great minds. Cutting edge issues for our contemporary times, crime, racial justice, economic equality and the future of our cities. Tonight's event builds upon Secretary Cuomo's recent trips to Appalachia, to West Virginia, and last week to Eastern Kentucky. In our excellent program this evening includes remarks by Secretary Cuomo and by our special guest this evening, Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, I can say proudly from the state of West Virginia. My Senator, my former Governor and friend. That will be followed by brief comments from Rory Kennedy, another special guest this evening, whose award winning film, American Hollow will be shown in its Washington premiere this evening. I want to point out that due to the real life situations in this movie, the language may sometimes be graphic. I want to point out as well that this tonight is not only about discussion and reflection, but it is about action. Following his visits to Appalachia recently, Secretary Cuomo has committed himself to summits in both those states, in West Virginia, in Charleston, our home city, and also in eastern Kentucky that will deal with real life issues with significant action and follow-up. Following the movie this evening we invite you to stay around in this lovely HUD cafeteria to socialize with famous HUD cafeteria popcorn, listen to the music of Jack Lederman on the fiddle and Richard Underwood on the banjo. And we would also invite you, if you have not already done so, to view our photo exhibit, a photo display from a West Virginia, southern West Virginia photographic from Lincoln County, Rick McDowell that is hanging in the corridors. We're joined this evening by so many guests here this evening and we welcome all of you and indeed you are our special guests, I want to point out especially the Community Builders who are here, an important new program that Secretary Cuomo has initiated here at HUD to reach out to build community across this country, and there is some 200 new Community Builders here this evening. So we extend a special welcome to you from across this country. We're also joined this evening by so many and I'll mention just a few and I'm sure miss many. We are joined by Mrs. Ethel Kennedy, by the Secretary's wife, Kerry Kennedy Cuomo, by Jess White, who has provided such outstanding leadership as Federal Co-chair of the Appalachia Regional Commission, and by so many others. Congressman Kennedy is there and others. Welcome to all of you and I'm sure I missed several of you. As we begin our program this evening, let's take just a moment with all the artifacts that we are surrounded with and pause to ask God's blessing in the spirit of why we gather this evening. In the word's of the monumental Catholic Bishop's Appalachia Pastoral, this land is home to me. I invite us all to pray. Dear sisters and brothers, we urge all of you not to stop living, to be a part of the rebirth of Utopias. To recover and defend the struggling dream of Appalachia itself. For it is the weak things of this world would seem like folly that the spirit takes up and makes its own. The dream of the mountain struggle, the dream of simplicity and of justice is, we believe, the voice of our God among us. Amen. And now as we move along in our program its indeed an honor for me to introduce now the person whose vision and commitment to equal opportunity in housing and economic development for all Americans brings us here this evening. As Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development I would say only simply this, he has done the impossible. He has fixed HUD. More importantly he has worked tirelessly and continues to do so to provide the resources and the expertise to empower neighborhoods and build communities across this country. Most importantly for me and I think why it all works and you will hear this in just one moment, at the heart of his leadership is a deep passion for the poor and for justice. So I present to you now the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Andrew Cuomo. SECRETARY CUOMO: Thank you very much. Thank you very much, Father Joseph Hacala for the very kind introduction and also for the great work that he does here at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. He is a Jesuit, the only Jesuit who is in the employ of the Clinton Administration as a political official. And when he correctly said that in the movie there was going to be graphic language, that was, as a Jesuit he noticed that there was graphic language, so we will be absolved of any sins, those of us who participate in this evening's listening to the movie. Joe mentioned the number of people here and we have really a number of special guests and when you start to mention some of them inevitably you leave out others. But I would be remiss if I didn't mention just a few. First we have the Deputy Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Saul Ramirez, please stand, Saul. We have Senator Paul Wellstone, who is no stranger to these issues. Senator Paul Wellstone. We have Congressman Patrick Kennedy, stand up Patrick Kennedy. When I pronounce Kennedy I use the Italian inflection which is Kennedy. My partner, my wife, and the best thing that ever happened to me, Kerry Kennedy Cuomo. We have Mrs. Sheila Wellstone, Sheila please stand up. And we have my mother-in-law, oh, they've heard about you before, Ethel. I've mentioned you in many discussions in this cafeteria. My mother-in-law, who, the only negative thing I can say about my mother-in-law is we have such a good relationship that I lost that entire repertoire of mother-in-law jokes that I would have otherwise had, Ethel Kennedy. Thank you. And thank you all for being here.I'm going to have the pleasure of introducing Senator J. Rockefeller who is going to make some remarks and then we'll hear from Rory and then we'll see the movie. But if I might just a point of context for this evening and Joe said it. What the Community 2020 Seminar Series is all about is talking about the real issues that face this nation. Sometimes not always the most visible issues, not always the issues that are in the headlines every day, but the most important issues, and this issue is one of them. The American story that we hear about every day is a great American success story. They talk about the DOW Jones about to hit 10,000 historic heights, the strongest economy in history, more millionaires created by this economy then any economy in history. They say a millionaire is created every day and that's a beautiful story of American success, capitalism at its best. Look what we can do, look at the wealth we can accumulate. And that no doubt is an American success story, and one to truly celebrate as we do. But we would be doing this nation and ourselves, excuse me, an injustice if we thought that was the only American story that was going on, because there is a second American story. There is a shadow to that success and the truth is also that not everyone everywhere is sharing that great American success story. And yes, you have more millionaires than ever before, but you still have one out of five children who will sleep in poverty. You have the highest homeownership rate in history, 66 percent, you will also have 600,000 homeless people on the streets tonight. More millionaires, the greatest income inequality in 30 years. Those stories are both true American stories. The second story you don't hear about, you won't read about, and you don't see it, because it doesn't make us especially proud. It's not about people who have power or who have influence. It's not about places that we pass every day. But that's the story we want to tell here at HUD, it's the story that you'll hear tonight. But it is a story that is from coast-to-coast, different faces, different complexions, different accents, but it is all too common an American story. You hear it on the Indian Reservations, Pine Ridge, the Navaho, the Black Feet who are in conditions that despicable. You can see it public housing, in conditions that most people wouldn't let animals live, let alone children. You can see it in cities that are dying, the Gary, Indiana's of the world, the Buffalo, New York's. Cities who are struggling for an existence and that is very much an American story, and a story that we need to tell. Why? Because we can do something about it. That's what Senator Paul Wellstone has shown us. That's what Senator J. Rockefeller shows us. That's what President Clinton demands of us. That we do something about it, that's what the strong economy necessitates that we do. Strong economy in and of itself is not a success. Show me what you do with that wealth and I'll tell you whether or not you're a success. The size of your paycheck does not make you a success. What you do with that wealth, where did you invest it, who did you help, who did you bring along and then I'll tell you whether or not you're a success. It's not the size of the feast, but the number of people at the table. And then I'll tell you if you're truly a success as a nation, and now is the time to do it. When will we ever have this opportunity again. Strong economy, the deficit is gone, right. How many years did we hear about the deficit as the obstacle to progressive Government. When we talked about investing, well, you can't do it, we have the deficit. We can't do jobs programs, we can do economic development, we can't do housing, we have the deficit, well that's gone. We have the people who know how to do it, we have the approaches that work, we have the leadership in the President, and we have the economy that gives us the resources. Now is the time to answer that second American story and have this nation live up to it's true potential which it has never realized. Opportunity for all was the promise of this nation. Discrimination by none was the promise of this nation. It was the promise that Martin Luther King pointed to. It's the promise that Robert F. Kennedy fought for and we've never reached. Let's reach our potential, let's tell the story, let's come together, let's make a difference, that's what this is all about. And tonight we take a step in that direction, and thank you all very much for being a part of it. It's now my pleasure to introduce from the State of West Virginia, Senator J. Rockefeller, who is now the Senator, who was the Governor, who was a College President, and began as a Vista Volunteer in Emmons, West Virginia, working with people who needed help. And that sense of community, and that sense of public service has stayed with him all these years and he now brings that voice to the United States Senate. He's very much a voice
