ABUJA, Jan 13 (Reuters) – Nigerians on Thursday reacted with a mixture of relief and indifference to the government’s decision to lift the ban on Twitter, saying many residents of Africa’s biggest economy had stayed connected via virtual private networks (VPN).

For model Kingsley Osine, the government’s decision to end the restriction has given Nigerians a voice.

“It didn’t really stop most of us from tweeting, but we were tweeting with fear, you know, but now we can tweet freely, we can express our voices freely,” Osine said.

Announcing the end of the seven-month suspension, the government said on Wednesday that the US social media giant had agreed to establish a local office among other conditions set by the West African nation. Read more

Twitter said it was pleased with its restoration in Nigeria and deeply committed to the country.

“It (the suspension) didn’t really change my social life as I could still interact with a lot of people on Twitter who were using a VPN,” said Benjamin Hon, an Abuja-based musician and content producer.

The Twitter ban, however, has hurt some Nigerian businesses as it has been condemned for its effect on freedom of expression and the ease of doing business in Africa’s most populous nation.

On Twitter, some Nigerians said the move by President Muhammadu Buhari’s government was taken to assuage widespread anger over the ban ahead of elections scheduled for 2023.

Social media should be an important tool in the political campaign before the contest.

The government suspended Twitter on June 4 after it deleted a post by Buhari that threatened to punish regional secessionists. Telecom companies subsequently blocked access to users in Nigeria.

Amnesty International Nigeria welcomed the lifting, describing the ban as an attack on the right to freedom of expression which had deprived Nigerians of “a social media platform that facilitates dialogue and empowers everyone to communicate”.

CLEVELAND – As the final game of the season approaches, the Cleveland Browns placed two players on the Reserve / COVID-19 roster, activated another roster player and made other roster changes ahead of Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

On Saturday morning, the Browns placed cornerback Denzel Ward and linebacker Malcolm Smith on the COVID-19 roster. Ward and Smith join running back Dexter Williams, safety Jovante Moffatt, defensive end Joe Jackson, kicker Chris Blewitt and defensive tackle Malik Jackson, who was placed on the roster on Thursday.

While the Browns placed Ward and Smith on the COVID-19 roster, they were also able to activate running back Ernest Johnson from the roster on Saturday. Johnson was placed on the list on Tuesday.

In addition, the Browns made several elevations before Sunday’s game.

Cornerback Brian Allen, safety back Adrian Colbert and goaltender Hjalte Froholdt have been elevated to the training squad’s list of active players. Cornerback Herb Miller and defensive end Curtis Weaver have been called up from the training squad to the active roster as COVID-19 replacements.

Elevations are part of a rule that allows a team to have up to 55 players on the roster in any given week before the pre-game trade deadline, giving the team more choice when the selection of their 47 or 48 active players per match day. . After the match, players elevated to the active roster for this purpose will return to the practice team the day after the match.

Cleveland also gave up linebacker Willie Harvey Jr.

With the Browns knocked out of the playoffs in Week 17, their final game won’t bring them any closer to the playoffs, or a winning record for that matter. But head coach Kevin Stefanski said starters who can physically play will, and the team have made it clear that they still have at least one thing to play: for each other.

“Why play it? It’s not even in our vocabulary. I don’t even understand what that means, ”said quarterback Case Keenum, who starts Sunday with Baker Mayfield in the casualty reserve and is preparing for shoulder surgery. “Like I said before, it’s the National Football League. You have guys in that locker room, including me and I can speak for myself, who we’ve been dreaming of playing in the NFL with since we are kids, all of us. It’s a dream come true to be able to go there and have not only the name on the back of our jerseys – that of our family – but the name on the front. There is a lot of pride. There is a lot of pride. There’s a lot of pride in Cleveland. I ‘I’ve been through that in the short two years I’ve been here. We have a lot of pride and we have a lot of things to play for. “

Browns’ playoff hopes end the day before the Steelers game https://inigo-tech.com/browns-playoff-hopes-end-the-day-before-the-steelers-game/ Mon, 03 Jan 2022 00:00:00 +0000 https://inigo-tech.com/browns-playoff-hopes-end-the-day-before-the-steelers-game/ CLEVELAND – Things looked as promising as they could given the situation the Cleveland Browns placed themselves in heading into the home stretch of the season as they aimed for the playoffs.

CLEVELAND – Things looked as promising as they could given the situation the Cleveland Browns placed themselves in heading into the home stretch of the season as they aimed for the playoffs. But fortune did not favor the Browns on Sunday, and the scenarios that could have kept them in control of their fate did not all work.

For the Browns to have a shot at winning the AFC North title on Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens had to lose to the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals had to lose to the Kansas City Chiefs. Both scenarios looked realistic.

But while the Rams were able to rally and take a late-game lead to beat the Ravens 20-19, the Bengals, led by Joe Burrow and his rookie weapon Ja’Marr Chase, outlasted the Chiefs and won 34- 31 on a 20-yard field goal as the seconds ticked off the clock.

The Bengals were the game that absolutely had to go in the right direction for the Browns. The victory saw Cincinnati claim the AFC North title. If they had lost and the Ravens had won, the Browns could still have won the division by winning followed by a Steelers victory over Baltimore in Week 18.

Sadly, the easier path to the playoffs has been scrapped with the Bengals’ winning placement – one more sting as the Browns have faced some serious kicking issues this season.

Things weren’t quite over for the Browns after those games. There was always a scenario in which the Browns would earn a Wild Card playoff berth if, and only if, they won this season. For that to happen, a lot of other things had to happen as well.

It was a big request for the Denver Broncos to beat the Los Angeles Chargers, and the wait came true with the Chargers knocking out the Broncos and officially ending the Browns’ playoff hopes, 34-13. .

The Browns have two more games to go, but who will take the field now that the playoffs are officially out of the equation, remains to be seen. Quarterback Baker Mayfield suffered a shoulder injury all season, Myles Garrett suffered a groin injury and Kareem Hunt was returning from an ankle injury, among other injuries the starters suffered this season. These players could simply rest to avoid injury in the remaining two games.

This season the offense became stagnant and stale, the defense ended up struggling but eventually gained the upper hand after adding a slew of new pieces during the offseason and the special teams unit tried to make sense of each other. . It wasn’t the season everyone expected after the way the Browns played in 2020. And now, sadly, it’s back to the old adage: there’s always next year.

Asian media giant CJ produced one of the biggest plays in the entertainment industry in 2021. CJ ENM’s acquisition of 80% of Endeavor Content’s scripted business enhanced the drama’s offering. company at nearly $ 1 billion. Attention now turns to the next steps of the mega-deal, as Parasite distributor CJ ENM takes control of a portfolio comprising Once upon a time … in Hollywood, see, The Revenant, The Night Manager, call me by your name and kill Eve, as well as the next Reminiscence and Miracle Blue. CJ ENM, which was created 12 years ago, now has a strong pipeline to Hollywood, at a time when Korean content is hotter than ever, thanks to the huge success of Squid game. How will the basic scripted output of Endeavor Content change, how much will the company be restructured, and what synergies can be drawn between the two? It hasn’t worked for Eros and STX, but will the CJ deal herald a new round of mergers and acquisitions in which international giants look to the United States for growth? These are all questions that will have to be answered in the coming year. One thing is certain: the deal eased Endeavor’s debt and signals a major global ambition for Asian power CJ. The CJ / Endeavor deal wasn’t the only 2021 headline in terms of US-international synergies. Next year will also see the establishment of the American management and production partnership of Anonymous Content based in France with the European company Federation Entertainment, as Anonymous / Federation prepares to create content for the French markets and global. This is just the latest European expansion of Anonymous (which also signed an agreement in 2021 with Israel’s leading talent agency) and a sign that US companies continue to look overseas for further exploration. their international relations. At the same time, the French company Federation created an American management company. The global flow of companies (and talent) has never been so fluid.

India’s animated streaming market gears up for a milestone year

Sacred games
Netflix

The streaming wars in India have raged at a high intensity throughout this pandemic, which has seen a string of high profile film-related titles pivot to online release. It came as a shock to the traditionally cinematic First Nation system. The influx of international streaming services combined with an increase in the number of powerful local players has set the stage for a fiercely competitive market that continues to grow at a rate sufficient to allow all players to grow – but a cap will be. it reached in 2022? India’s population is large, and also very young, with an average age of only 29 years. Combine that with widely available high-speed internet, rising salaries, and a strong appetite for content, and it seems questionable that it could be several years in the territory before the number of subscribers starts to peak like they do. in some western countries. However, the streamers are not resting on their laurels, with clear and recent indications that the big players plan to get active in their maneuvers next year. Netflix recently made headlines when it slashed prices for its various subscription levels in India, including the popular “Standard” sub, which fell 60%. The move, which comes as other territories continue to see their prices rise, was seen as an aggressive game for subscribers, putting those numbers ahead of revenue, at least in the short term. “The billion people opportunity in India is very real… We have seen how subscriber numbers boost the psyche of Wall Street investors,” an industry source commented after the news. Also in December, the Indian branch of Sony finalized a merger deal with local rival Zee Entertainment to create the second largest network in India. The pact is seen as a direct move to compete for eyeballs online with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and established player Disney + Hotstar. The deal, which is subject to regulatory hurdles, includes two streaming services – ZEE5 and Sony LIV – could it signal further consolidation to follow in the coming year? Amazon, which has been the most active player in securing the rights to talent-driven films that have had to skip their movie screenings, recently landed the rights to the cricket matches that the Indian national team plays in New Zealand. -Zeeland, a key draw for the local cricket-obsessed public. On that note, the most important moment in Indian streaming next year could be the next round of betting for the popular Indian Premier League cricket tournament, with streamers in the mix the last time before Star India ( now part of Disney) does triumph. The winner of these rights could steal a march on his competitors.

Africa: the next frontier?

The wedding party

The wedding party
Inkblot studios

Keep an eye out for African content next year, which is expected to become more prominent on global streaming services. Amazon recently entered into a multi-year deal with Inkblot Studios, one of Nigeria’s leading producers with credits including box office hits. The wedding party and its sequel, to take exclusive worldwide rights on its post-cinema roster. “Nigerian stories are truly some of the most exciting and thrilling in the world,” Ayanna Lonian, director of content acquisition for Prime Video, said of the deal. The pact follows Netflix’s merger with Nigerian producer EbonyLife, which will continue to bear fruit next year. International streamers are bolstering their local rosters in Africa to compete with local players including Showmax and MyCanal, and Disney + is expected to become the next US giant to enter local markets in 2022. With VOD subscribers expected to triple across the continent in the next five years, Africa could become the next key battleground as submarines begin to level off in other more mature markets.

Saudi Arabia is coming

“Desert warrior”
MBC STUDIOS-JB Pictures-AGC Studios

One could argue that Saudi Arabia was the country of international industry in 2021. While the KSA has threatened to break through since theaters reopened in 2017, 2021 was the year the country hosted its first festival. international film and several important productions in English. as big budget action shots Desert warrior and Kandahar, as well as a horror film Cello. A government body estimated that in 2017, the Saudis spent $ 30 billion on entertainment and hospitality elsewhere in the Middle East. As the number of theaters increases and events increase, a good chunk of that money should instead be spent locally. Some insiders are even predicting that the controversial state could grow into a billion dollar distribution market within the next few years. The growing number of international shoots and the star-studded Red Sea Festival (as well as a growing number of major sporting and musical events) seem to indicate that qualms about the country’s depressing human rights record will not stop the industry growth. Expect this rise to continue into 2022.

China?

PA

What lies ahead for China and Hollywood in 2022 is currently a murky, frustrating and yet somewhat fascinating question. Showing a strong recovery in cinemas, the PRC will be the world’s No. 1 box office market in 2021 for the second year in a row. However, he could see that status return to North America next year. China was mercurial in 2021, allowing some studio titles to pass its coveted turnstiles, while leaving a lot of potential on the table as it was stingy (or very late) on release dates and, notably, did not approve any movie featuring a Marvel character (from Black Widow at Eternals, Shang-Chi, Venom: let there be carnage and so far, Spider-Man: No Path Home, which has yet already crossed the billion dollars in the world without this market). There are various theories as to why this happened, and there is confusion as well. A recent editorial in CCP spokesperson World time accused Hollywood of “distorting the values ​​of” political correctness “” and “misuse of Chinese elements in their films”. He also asked emphatically, “Should the Chinese Film Authority allow … movies to come in just because they’re Marvel movies?” While there is no consensus among observers as to when the situation will change, most agree that it will have to do so if the market is to maintain its dominance. While an oft-heard refrain is that China doesn’t care about money, the country is also said to care about cultural power. And, while he’s quite capable of producing local films that make over $ 500 million at home, without Hollywood product, sources believe he won’t be able to feed his ever-growing number of films. ‘screens in a post-pandemic world. Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see the country step up onto the world stage with the Beijing Winter Olympics in February (just as the lucrative Chinese New Year box office period will be up and running and when, normally, it there will be a so-called blackout on imported films). Several countries have already embarked on a diplomatic boycott of the Winter Games over human rights concerns, but allow their athletes to travel. For Hollywood, we are told, China remains a very important market, but one that must find a fine line between what is important politically and what position it wants to have.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield returned from the Reserve / COVID-19 roster on Saturday morning after spending 10 days away from the squad. He flew to Green Bay separately on Saturday morning and took to the pitch with time for a tour and conversations with head coach Kevin Stefanski and offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.

Mayfield had participated in the virtual meetings throughout the week, but the online preparation did not bear fruit.

Throwing 21 for 36, Mayfield had 222 yards and two touchdowns, but it was the turnovers that proved too difficult to overcome.

Mayfield had four interceptions, the first on the second practice, killing the momentum after a near-perfect practice on the field in the end zone. Some unbalanced shots, short balls and sails ended up in the hands of the Packers’ defenders.

“I don’t think it was anything from a preparation standpoint, mentally it was just missed shots. It’s not characteristic,” Mayfield said after the game. “I hurt our team.

“With Baker I know he had four interceptions, but we win as a team, we lose as a team,” Stefanski said. He also said that no matter what some fans ask, Mayfield will remain their starter for the future.

“He’s our starting quarterback, yeah,” Stefanski said.

Missed call
Blaming the referees is futile, but on Saturday a missed defensive pass interference call had a big influence on the outcome of final practice.

With 50 seconds left on the clock and the Browns looking to enter the range with just two points, two incomplete passes left the Browns in a 3rd and 10 situation on the 50-yard line.

Mayfield threw a pass intended for wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones, but play culminated in his fourth interception and sealed a victory for the Packers.

But on the play, Peoples-Jones was held by Packers cornerback Rasul Douglas, who caught the pass. It looked like a clear defensive pass interference, but the referees held their flags.

“I think there was a bit of holding and tugging, I understand that the referees won’t get all the calls, but in great times like this it’s difficult,” Stefanski said.

The missed call was brutal, but there was another factor that perhaps hurt the Browns so much.

Do not run
On Saturday, the Browns’ game was on fire when used.

Nick Chubb carried the ball 17 times for 126 yards and one touchdown. Between Chubb, Ernest Johnson, Anthony Schwartz and the Mayfield goaltenders, the Browns averaged 8.76 yards per carry throughout the game.

But in the last practice, after Chubb moved the chains twice, he was sidelined and the Browns switched to the passing game. This resulted in two incomplete passes and the final interception.

Of course, Chubb is human and needs a rest every now and then. But with the three remaining timeouts, he might have been able to take a break and have the chance to get involved in another play.

Or maybe they could have given Johnson, who was the game’s captain, a chance with the ball on the ground to dump a bit of clockwork while pushing through the basket range. Instead, it was forwarded to.

Pulling away from the offensive force at the most crucial moment turned out to be the third factor in the Browns’ final training failure.

The Browns are now scorecard watchers as they await the results of rival division games that could make or break their playoff chances. Browns fans will be keeping their fingers crossed that fate can help the Browns more than they could help themselves in the dying seconds of Saturday’s game.
