Can Crime Be Ethically Predicted?
NYTimes - over 1 year
More police departments are trying to predict crime through computer analysis of data, part of the growing trend of using algorithms to analyze human behavior. Advocates say this approach focuses on those most likely to commit crimes, allowing for better relationships between police and residents. But critics say the computer models perpetuate racial profiling and infringe on civil liberties with little accountability, especially when the forecasting models are built by companies that keep their methods secret. Does predictive policing work? Can it decrease crime without infringing on civil liberties?

Katy Perry Would Star In 'Beetlejuice 2' If Anyone Asks
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The more you know: Speaking to fans during a Q&A session on Wednesday, Katy Perry revealed that should "Beetlejuice 2" become an actual reality, she'd love to play Lydia, the part originated by Winona Ryder in the first film. This isn't the first time Perry and "Beetlejuice" have been associated. An intrepid video editor cut together Perry's "Teenage Dream" with footage from the "Beetlejuice" cartoon that ran between 1989 and 1991: Perry has long discussed her interest in acting. (She voices Smurfette in the "Smurfs" films, and has also hosted "Saturday Night Live.") "I am really interested in comedy, and I would really love to play Rachael in 'Blade Runner 2' if Ridley [Scott] would just call!" Perry said to the U.K. edition of Metro earlier this year. "I think I’d enjoy playing the opposite of what you expect." Sean Young played the Rachael role in the original "Blade Runner." As for "Beetlejuice 2," director Tim Burton is in talks to return to make the second film, though ...

Katy Perry Wants To Be In 'Blade Runner,' So We Recast It With Pop Stars
MTV News - over 3 years
Katy Perry, in an interview with Metro said that she really wants to act. Specifically, she wants the role of Rachael in "Blade Runner 2," which is currently being written. "With films, I hope to win you all over with animation and then do other films," she said. "I am really interested in comedy, and I would really love to play Rachael in 'Blade Runner 2' if Ridley would just call!" Perry does have a point here. There is a strong resemblance between her and Sean Young in "Blade Runner," and that got us thinking. While we're recasting Rachael with Perry, why not fill out the rest of the cast with pop stars? This is what we came up with. Justin Timberlake as Deckard The closest thing pop music has to a Harrison Ford — the "guys wanna be/girls wanna be with" ideal — is Justin Timberlake. He even has some experience working in sci-fi, but we'll look past "In Time." Kanye West as Roy Batty Just imagine Yeezy's take on the "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe" spe ...

Photography And The Phantom Sex
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Photographer Dana Hoey's previous exhibitions have focused on both young and older women, but for her upcoming show "The Phantom Sex," Hoey captures a more elusive subject. Her twelve-photograph series explores the search for the essential woman and the inevitable failure of such a quest. Using masks, molds and casts, Hoey navigates the urge to shape oneself to a certain elusive ideal. She employs an unsettling yet beautiful mashup of flesh, plastic, and mirrors as the tools women use to craft perfect visions of themselves. Using statues, self-made casts and even a death mask of "Bladerunner" star Sean Young, Hoey addresses the uncanny sensation of shaping yourself from within your own body. We spoke to the artist to find out more about her ambitious new exhibition. Scroll down for a slideshow of her new works. HP: What was one of the greatest challenges of this particular show? DH: There has been a lot written on the subject. You always see yourself as other peop ...

Xaque Gruber: Sundance and Slamdance: An Equal Abundance of Brave New Films
Huffington Post - about 4 years
For hardcore movie lovers, like myself, there is no month quite like January. Amidst the frenzy of Hollywood's movie award season, the snowy, scenic hamlet of Park City, Utah simultaneously hosts two of the world's finest independent film festivals, Sundance (since 1981) and Slamdance (since 1995). This year both scored equal jackpots of cinematic treasure. Slamdance: Housed entirely in the Treasure Mountain Inn at the top of Main Street, Slamdance is easy to navigate with tickets and memorable movies aplenty. The Dirties This year was a banner one for the alternative fest, thanks in part to the most controversial (and arguably best) film in all of Park City: The Dirties. Hilarious, heartbreaking and haunting, The Dirties, which won the fest's Grand Jury Award Best Narrative Feature, chronicles two best friends (Matt Johnson and Owen Williams) aspiring Tarantino-esque filmmakers relentlessly tormented in the corridors of their high school by the eponymous gang of th ...

Under attack, minority Hazaras risk death to flee
Fox News - over 4 years
As he knelt in prayer to mark one of Islam's holiest days, Ali Raza Qurban saw a childhood friend and dozens of others die in a suicide attack on their Shiite mosque. Sunni militants were again targeting minority ethnic Hazaras in this city of narrow streets and wide-open hatreds. Qurban decided it was time to leave. He found an agent who would hook him up with a smuggler in Indonesia and, for $8,000, get him to Australia. But he never made it to Australia. He disappeared on Dec. 17, 2011, aboard an overcrowded, rickety wooden boat that capsized within hours of leaving the Indonesian shore. Four months had passed since the suicide bombing at the mosque in Quetta, where the violence has spawned a vibrant human smuggling business. The smugglers operate out of small, unidentified shops. Selling promises of a safe and better life in Australia, they largely capitalize on the fear and desperation of the Hazara, a largely Shiite community that is f ...

Baby Boom: Olympic Sharpshooter Is 8 Months Pregnant
Huffington Post - over 4 years
LONDON -- She's shooting for two. A Malaysian woman who is eight months pregnant will compete in 10-meter air rifle at the London Games. She found out she would be a mother just days after she found out she would be an Olympian. Nur Suryani Mohammed Taibi is due in September. Being pregnant means the 29-year-old Taibi has to get in and out of a special suit and belt for practice, but that is only one challenge: She is also drawing overwhelming attention that threatens her concentration ahead of competition Saturday. To her parents, the mom-to-be is already a champion. "Whatever happens, I'm satisfied already," her father, Mohammed Taibi, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Friday from the family home in northern Malaysia. "I'm proud of her. I've told her: If you can compete in the Olympics, that's such an achievement already – all the more when you're pregnant," "We're her family, so we support her. We'll be praying for her," he said. ...

Let's go ahead and cast the What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? remake
Boing Boing - over 4 years
Fantastic news coming out of Comic Con: They are remaking What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?! It's such fun news that there is no way to properly punctuate the end of the sentence! Walter Hill, who just finished directing Sylvester Stallone in the cop drama Bullet to the Head, will direct and write the screenplay, because a movie about an abusive, deranged former child star torturing her crippled sister while both wither away in obscurity is clearly the next logical step in his career. Now that the news is out of the way, let's cast this thing! (And maybe look at more pictures of Bette Davis looking out of her blessèd mind!) First, let's take a look back at the 1962 original that starred Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, two women who hated each other with the heat of one thousand suns, perhaps more. Crawford, who played the victimized sister Blanche Hudson, actually put rocks in her costume when Davis -- the titular "Baby" Jane Hudson -- was called upon to drag her body around thei ...

Bank workers' 401(k)s fall with employers' stock
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Bank workers' 401(k)s fall with employers' stock The 2001 collapse of Enron Corp. led to warnings that tying retirement funds to an employer's stock could be more crippling when a company fails, resulting in the loss of both a nest egg as well as a source of income. Current and former Morgan Stanley employees, who receive company shares to match their 401(k) contributions, held 24 percent of retirement assets in the firm's stock before last year's decline, the highest percentage of any of the banks. JPMorgan employees, some of whom received stock in the company until last year to match retirement contributions, devoted 18 percent of their funds to the lender's shares at the end of 2010. Any amount exceeding 20 percent is deemed a concentrated position, said Jean Young, a senior research analyst at the Vanguard Center for Retirement Research, a division of Vanguard Group Inc., the biggest U.S. mutual-fund company. Morgan Stanley is facing a lawsuit from former ...

'Blade Runner' Cast: Where Are They Now?
Deadline Hollywood - over 4 years
Can you imagine Dustin Hoffman as the hard-boiled, romantic, replicant-hunting sleuth hero of "Blade Runner"? It's true, the "Tootsie" star was one of many leading men up for the role of Rick Deckard; it was only a recommendation from Steven Spielberg, who had just shot "Raiders of the Lost Ark," that persuaded Ridley Scott that "Star Wars" second banana Harrison Ford could carry a movie. Three decades later, Ford has gone from untried leading man to cinema icon. His co-stars (including Sean Young, Daryl Hannah, and Edward James Olmos) went from obscurity to stardom -- and sometimes, back again to obscurity. The movie itself, which was a box-office disappointment upon its release 30 years ago this month (on June 25, 1982), went on to become the most influential science-fiction movie this side of "Star Wars." About seven different versions have been released since then, making sure that we never forgotten about Deckard's dark quest to find humanity within himself -- even as we may ...

Roger Corman's Attack of the 50-Foot Cheerleader in 3D Promises to Be Epix
Dread Central - almost 5 years
Roger Corman graced Syfy with a Sharktopus. For his foray into producing for the Epix network, the “King of the B’s” is busting out Attack of the 50-Foot Cheerleader (in 3D no less) and has assembled quite a cast for a movie about a giant cheerleader on a rampage. Shockingly, Roger Corman did not produce the 1950’s cult classic Attack of the 50-Foot Woman or its 1990’s remake starring Daryl Hannah. He also had nothing to do with 1995’s Attack of the 60-Foot Centerfold; that was Fred Olen Ray’s homage. Now, at the ripe old age of 86 (and still kicking), Corman is finally getting a piece of the giant woman on the attack action with Attack of the 50-Foot Cheerleader. Synopsis: Aspiring college cheerleader Cassie Stratford consumes an experimental drug that grants her beauty and enough athletic ability to make the cheer squad. However, the drug has an unforeseen side effect - Cassie starts to grow and grow and grow. The titular 50-foot cheerleader will be played by Miss Georgia Teen ...

Peruse the eclectic list that includes Judy Jetson, TV's Wonder Woman,Agyness Deyn, Chloë Sevigny, Daphne Guinness and Natalie Wood and you understand why blue hair has become her latest fashion passion. Perry tells the magazine why she has tried to retain her 'pinup girl' style for so long: “Like, I'm still doing the pinup thing, but now when I do it, I want to be the pinup of the future, like Rachael in Blade Runner. But I've always been quirky -- it probably started when I was nine years old, and my father used to wake me up at 7 every Saturday morning to take me to garage sales. I couldn't afford the clothes that the other girls at school were wearing, so instead I looked for things that were unique ...

Actress <a class="fplink fp-249439" href="/Sean+Young+1">Sean Young</a>, who was arrested at an Academy Awards party, will not face charges, according to the L.A. city attorney's office.
