Flash vs. Kang, the highly anticipated crossover between the Marvel and DC extended cinematic universes, was forced to shut down production just minutes after it began due to several simultaneous controversies, sources have confirmed.
“We were prepared for this possibility, but were really hoping we’d somehow pull it off without too bad an incident,” said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios and one of several executive producers of the highly anticipated film. “Or at least get a few more scenes filmed before we had to shut it down. We didn’t even make it to lunch. After we saw how they had to sit on that Flash movie for a few years, we just said ‘No way,’ and sent everyone home. We can’t do four months of this.”
Before we start – yes, Karol is a variation on Charles. Or rather, they come from the same etymological root. Go and argue about it with Susie Dent, if you like. Anyway, Poborský won titles with Manchester United, Slavia Prague and Sparta Prague, but will always be best remembered for his flowing locks and for his role in the Czech Republic’s run to the final of Euro 1996, and, in particular, for that lobbed goal against Portugal.
The funny thing is that he scored an almost identical goal against the same goalkeeper – Vítor Baia – a few years later while playing for Benfica, and nothing he achieved that summer was any kind of bottled lightning. He earned 118 caps for his country and scored over a hundred career goals from the right wing, playing in four different countries. Sadly, the now long-retired winger has gotten rid of the hair.
Zaha Hadid, a trailblazing British-Iraqi architect, passed away seven years ago at the peak of her career. As a woman of Arab descent, she defied the traditional mould of what an architect should be and left an indelible mark on the field of contemporary design.
This is the issue with grit. It can get you to stick to hard things that are worthwhile, but it can also get you to stick to hard things that are no longer worthwhile – like after your fibula snaps at mile eight. Throughout our lives, it turns out we are not very good listeners when the world tells us that we should stop.
There are a host of reasons why we ignore obvious signals to quit, not the least of which is that quitting has a nearly universal negative connotation. If someone called you a quitter, would you ever consider it a compliment?
eWorld was an online service operated by Apple Inc. between June 1994 and March 1996. The services included email (eMail Center), news, software installs and a bulletin board system (Community Center). Users of eWorld were often referred to as “ePeople.”
Based on a similar service from America Online, eWorld was expensive compared to other services and not well marketed, and failed to attract a high number of subscribers. The service was only available on Apple’s Macintosh and Apple IIGS and had limited support on the Newton MessagePad handheld devices, though a PC version had been planned.
