Allison Janney takes her Oscar to work, lets Anna Faris hold it

It’s fun to imagine the lucky few who took home Oscars on Sunday sipping bubbly with their fabulous friends at ritzy parties late into the night. They’re glam Hollywood stars, so what else would they do? Well, Allison Janney, who won the Best Supporting Actress trophy for her turn in I, Tonya, shattered any illusions of that when she showed up to work Monday morning, Oscar in tow.

At least she had the opportunity to share her joy with her Mom co-workers, including her TV daughter, Anna Faris. (And it’s not like she went straight home after the ceremony, so surely there was some time for celebration.)

 

Another Mom actress, Mimi Kennedy, was just as happy for her co-star. She was also just as impressed by the weight of the award — 8.5 pounds.

In fact, the entire cast and crew applauded when Janney arrived, Mom producer and writer Adam Chase shared on Twitter.

Just as fun as the excitement of Janney’s co-stars is the T-shirt that she wore for her first day as “Oscar winner Allison Janney,” the way she will always be identified in movie trailers from here on out. Her shirt read, “I Survived Awards Season and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt.” Of course, it was also adorned with a colorful bird, like the one that sat on her shoulder throughout much of awards season, and, of course, a notice about her award winning-performance as Tonya Harding’s mother.

Looks like her Oscar will become her new accessory.

    Irish passport application: How to apply for an Irish passport and are you eligible after Brexit?

    With continuing uncertainty over Brexit, many people are wondering whether they are eligible for an Irish passport. Not only have Brits been applying for them in record numbers since the EU referendum, but more than 230,000 people have applied for an Irish passport so far this year - a 30% jump on 2018. Along with this, the Irish embassy in London has issued 10 times more passports than any other office since 2016 and demand is reportedly so high in Northern Ireland that post offices have run out of forms.

The court filing said that he was unable to work in Illinois or "even the United States" due to his performances being cancelled, after he was charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse against one woman and three underage girls.

    New Zealand shooting: Jacinda Ardern announces royal commission into attack

    Jacinda Ardern said a royal commission will look at what could have been done to prevent the Christchurch terrorist attack. Photograph: Hagen Hopkins/Getty ImagesNew Zealand’s prime minister has announced a top-level inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the massacre of 50 people in two Christchurch mosques.Jacinda Ardern said the country’s highest form of investigation, a royal commission of inquiry, was appropriate for “matters of the gravest public importance”.“It is important that no stone is left unturned to get to the bottom of how this act of terrorism occurred and what, if any, opportunities we had to stop it,” Ardern told reporters at Parliament House in Wellington on Monday.Her cabinet had previously agreed on holding an inquiry, but had not decided what kind of investigation would be held.A royal commission is run independently from the government and is chaired by a high court judge. It has the power to compel witnesses to testify and organisations to hand over documents. But it remains up to the courts or government to follow through on any recommendations or findings.Ardern said the cabinet agreed on Monday a royal commission of inquiry “will look at what could have or should have been done to prevent the attack”.An Australian, Brenton Tarrant, has been charged with murder in relation to the 15 March attacks.The royal commission will look at his travel to and from New Zealand, internationally, his activities in New Zealand, his use of social media and his connection to others.The agencies taking part in the inquiry would include the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service, the Government Communications Security Bureau, police along with Customs and Immigration.Ardern said that the royal commission’s terms of reference would be finalised in the next two or three weeks.Fifty people died in the shootings at Al Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch, in what is New Zealand’s worst ever terrorist attack. The county’s intelligence agencies have been under pressure for the past two weeks after they were accused of not placing enough importance on monitoring rightwing extremists.The opposition leader, Simon Bridges, had also called for a royal commission to look at the country’s security legislation and ensure “New Zealanders are kept safe”.Ardern said she and other ministers would soon meet with Microsoft to discuss the role of social media following the sharing of live-streamed video of the alleged gunman’s attack.The commission follows the chief censor making it illegal to possess and share both the live-streamed video of the shooting and a document the gunman shared on social media before the attack took place.David Shanks officially classed the so-called manifesto as “objectionable” and told anyone in possession of it to destroy it.

    Far-right Italian deputy Matteo Salvini takes Basilicata in south

    The Basilicata win marks the third region to be won by Matteo Salvini’s centre-right coalition. Photograph: Alberto Colusso/AP Italy’s deputy prime minister, Matteo Salvini, has renewed his pledge to change Europe as his rightwing coalition swept to victory in the southern region of Basilicata, ending 24 years of leftwing rule. Basilicata is the third region won by the coalition, which includes Salvini’s far-right League, Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia and the smaller far-right party, Brothers of Italy, since the League formed a national government with the Five Star Movement (M5S) last June. The group scored almost 43% of the vote, 18% of which came from League supporters. “In one year the League has tripled its votes, victory also in Basilicata!” Salvini tweeted. “Goodbye to the left, and now to change Europe.” Sunday’s vote marked another dismal result in regional elections for the M5S, an outcome that will further test the party’s influence within the national coalition as its partner, the League, flourishes. Although the M5S was the single biggest party in Basilicata – winning just over 20% of the vote – it lost more than half the support gained in the region in last year’s general elections. The leftwing coalition came second, with the outgoing Democratic party gaining less than 10% within the group despite hopes of renewed vigour under the recently elected leader, Nicola Zingaretti. The party’s image was sullied by the house arrest last July of the region’s president, Marcello Pittella, for alleged corruption. The Pittella family had been somewhat of a dynasty within the administration since the mid-90s. Forza Italia Led by four-time prime minister Silvio Berlusconi (although he himself cannot stand owing to a tax fraud conviction). Wants to introduce a “parallel currency” for domestic use, keeping the euro for international trade. Other policies include: a single “flat rate” income tax for companies and individuals; abolishing housing, inheritance and road tax; doubling the minimum pension; introducing a minimum income of €1,000 a month for all; blocking new immigrant arrivals. Northern League Led by Matteo Salvini. Promises to introduce a parallel currency and a flat tax for all at 15%, as well as allowing earlier retirement, repatriating 100,000 illegal immigrants a year and reopening Italy’s brothels. Brothers of Italy Led by Giorgia Meloni. A southern equivalent of the Northern League with neo-fascist roots; policies broadly similar. Five Star Movement Led by Luigi Di Maio. Proposes a minimum monthly income of €780; raising the budget deficit; repealing 400 “useless” laws, including labour and pension reforms to allow earlier retirement and make firing harder; raising taxes on energy companies; improving relations with Russia. Democratic party Led by Matteo Renzi. Proposes an increase in minimum wage; negotiating to abolish the EU’s fiscal compact (which imposes stiff budget cuts on high-debt countries); raising the budget deficit to 3% of GDP so as to cut taxes and increase investment. Free and Equal Led by Piero Grasso. New party uniting smaller leftwing groups. Proposes to repeal labour and pension reforms and boost public spending. “Basilicata was maybe tired of the centre-left and after a scandal it was easier for the centre-right to win the election,” said Mattia Diletti, a politics professor at Rome’s Sapienza University. While the win was crucial for Salvini, it was also a success for Berlusconi, who is plotting a political comeback and is running in May’s European elections; the region’s new president, Vito Bardi, a former financial police governor, is one of his closest allies. The M5S has been gradually losing consensus since coming to power with the League and the defeat in Basilicata follows losses in Abruzzo and Sardinia in February. The arrest last week of Marcello De Vito, a senior M5S figure and president of Rome’s city council, over alleged corruption, an issue the party has long railed against, has added to its woes. Since last April, the rightwing coalition has won elections in the regions of Molise, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Abruzzo and Sardinia, as well as the Trentino-Alto Adige province of Trento. The alliance will also vie in votes this year in Calabria, Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont, all of which are currently under a leftwing administration. But for now all eyes are on the European parliamentary elections in late May, and in the absence of any real challengers, Salvini is forecast to win big. He has reportedly invited members of the far-right grouping, Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF), to Rome in April, with the aim of forming an alliance. Salvini has strong relations with National Rally, the French far-right party led by Marine Le Pen. “You never know with Italy, as sometimes a scandal or event can alter a path, but right now I can’t see anything that will change a Salvini victory in the European elections,” said Diletti.

    Has Tesco killed off its Hudl tablet?

    Dark days for the colourful Hudl launched by Tesco in 2013. Photograph: Tesco/PAI want to warn Tesco Hudl tablet users that the retailer has withdrawn software support which means if you try to restore your tablet to factory settings, it will not restart and is, in effect, useless.The problem first emerged in January and, until now, Tesco has claimed to be working on a fix. But it has just announced via Twitter that “Hudl 1 and the first edition Hudl 2 have reached the end of life. This means the update that has been put in place will not fix the issue you’re seeing, we’re afraid.”This is a potential disaster, and yet Tesco has said almost nothing formally. Hudl tablets have been really successful, and there is still a buoyant second-hand market as they are easy to use, fast and powerful.For Tesco to kill off the majority in a single blow, without any warning, is not right. Surely it should have made a public announcement before pulling the plug or advising Hudl 2 owners that, if they want to keep their tablets running, they must update to the Android 5.1 Lollipop version before a certain date.ALC, by emailThis could affect a lot of users – the £119 tablet was a big seller between 2013 and 2015, as customers were offered a decent, cheaper alternative to the iPad. Your tablet will continue to work as normal as long as you do nothing – so don’t try to restore it to factory settings or update its operating system.Given that there could be as many as 500,000 still in use, it is surprising that Tesco had not formally said anything about this issue that has caused considerable anger among users. However, Tesco tells us that it has not switched off the Hudl servers. Newer versions of Hudl 2 devices can be fixed, and it is working on a solution for older models.“We’re aware of a technical issue affecting a number of Hudl users and apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused. We have already fixed the issue for the majority of those who have contacted us and are urgently working on resolving any outstanding queries.”If yours has been bricked and you can’t wait, the Amazon Fire tablets are a great, good-value alternative.We welcome letters but cannot answer individually.

    Australian zoo breeds rare plains-wanderer by replacing absent father with feather duster

    The captive population of Australia’s most unique critically endangered bird has doubled with the birth of nine plains-wanderer chicks, helped out by a feather duster, a heat lamp and a lot of cotton wool.The chicks were born to two pairs and hatched within 24 hours of each other at Werribee open range zoo in Victoria last week.Within four days, the zoo director Glen Holland said, the chicks were eating crickets “the size of beans” and zooming around their enclosure “like bumblebees”.“Once they are hatched and warm and dry they run off and fend for themselves – they are very independent,” Holland said.One of the clutches was hatched in an incubator and raised under the paternal care of a feather duster after one of the fathers, a four-month-old who was daunted at raising his first chicks, stopped sitting on them.Like emus, male plains-wanderers bear responsibility for child rearing and stay with the chicks, while the female can move on to another mate soon after laying her eggs.“They have been snuggling up to the feather duster, pushing up into the feathers,” Holland said.The new hatchlings bring the zoo’s captive population to 20. It’s only the second time the zoo has successfully hatched plains-wanderer chicks since beginning a $500,000 captive breeding program 18 months ago.“Breeding nine healthy chicks in such a short time is a huge achievement and one we are all very excited about,” the threatened species keeper, Yvette Pauligk, said.“Genetically speaking, they are listed as the fourth most important species worldwide, and the … most important in Australia in evolutionary distinctiveness and extinction risk.“To lose such an ancient, unique species would be completely devastating.”The plains-wanderer, Pedionomus torquatus, is a ground-dwelling bird that lives in a particular type of dry grassland in western Victoria, New South Wales and eastern South Australia. It is the only member of the Pedionomidae family.There are fewer than 1,000 mature birds left in the wild. Grazing and persistent drought are rapidly shrinking their preferred habitat of semi-open grassland, although farmers in key habitat areas have joined with conservationists to ensure they maintain precisely the right grass levels – not too bare and not too thick – for the fussy birds.The adults in the breeding program are a mixture of wild eggs that were collected and a few geographically confused birds who have turned up in unwise places: a carpark in Bacchus Marsh, a backyard in Bendigo and a suburban area of Craigieburn.“I would not say they are particularly clever in their habits,” Holland said.The bird’s genetic isolation has presented a challenge for keepers, who are unable to look at a closely related species to model the best methods for captive breeding. The closest allegory – although they are not closely related – seems to be the buttonquail.“It’s a case of: let’s just base the breeding on buttonquails and see how we go,” Holland said.“We have got about five years of really serious learning about the captive side of things, and then if it continues as well as it has this year, we are talking seriously about putting birds back in the wild, in about five or six years.”

    Exclusive: Aztec war sacrifices found in Mexico may point to elusive royal tomb

    A trove of Aztec sacrifices including a richly adorned jaguar dressed as a warrior and recently discovered in downtown Mexico City could lead archaeologists to the most tantalizing find yet: an Aztec emperor's tomb. Discovered off the steps of the Aztec's holiest temple during the reign of the empire's most powerful ruler, the sacrificial offerings also include a young boy, dressed to resemble the Aztec war god and solar deity, and a set of flint knives elaborately decorated with mother of pearl and precious stones. The offerings were deposited by Aztec priests over five centuries ago in a circular, ritual platform once located in front of the temple where the earliest historical accounts describe the final resting place of Aztec kings.
