The winner of Channel 4’s Great Big Tiny Design Challenge has expressed shock and delight after winning the TV design competition, despite not expecting it.

Dom Kane, 31, from Wakefield, was announced the winner of the show when the final aired on Sunday May 15.

He has since revealed how completely shocked it was, as the amateur craftsman’s background was different from most of the other contestants.

The proud winner explained, “The show is all about renovating a dollhouse and I’m not from that industry or that scene. So I knew I would be in deep water from the first week.

“I didn’t really think I belonged there, and then I went out and won it, and there were some really big names and talented people on the show. It absolutely blew me away, if I’m being honest.”

The craftsman, who normally likes to model game boards and sets, also revealed that he’s hardly been on the show. When the production team reached out to him online asking him to apply for the contest, his message got lost in their applications folder.

Send your congratulations to Dom in the comments below.

But he finally found it and decided to give the show a try. “I thought, why not? You don’t have opportunities like this knocking on your door every day,” he said.

Even though Dom didn’t expect his candidacy to go anywhere, he was selected for the show and, after going through seven rounds, he reached the final. He was then crowned the winner, making Yorkshire proud.

The University of Huddersfield graduate, who works in mechanical engineering, said he received a great response from across the county, with fans even stopping him in the street. “A lot of people say it’s refreshing to hear an accent like mine on national TV,” he added.

The competition prize? “I have a trophy and bragging rights,” he joked. But he also enjoyed the experience, trying new things and making new friends.

After unexpectedly enjoying his time in front of the camera, Dom would like to try his hand at more filming. He would also like to offer DIY workshops to pass on his tips and tricks to children.

And he found a new friend in Sandi Toksvig, the show’s presenter. Speaking about his time with Sandi, Dom said, “Sandi is an ace. Sandi is so cool. I got on really well with her and she started calling me her baby boy throughout filming.”

So maybe Dom’s next TV appearance will be with his pal. But until then, you can follow his work on @yorkshire_warhawk.

A bald lovebird named blonde is living her best life with her family in Venezuela despite losing almost all of her feathers and her ability to fly.

Blondie had a full coat of feathers when he was first adopted, but his feathers started to fall out over the year and he struggled to raise himself. After much research, his human Bella Escobar discovered that he had Beak and feather disease of psittacinesa virus that attacks the immune system, feathers and beaks of birds.

Escobar said Blondie became depressed over the loss of his feathers, so she took steps to ensure he was entertained and enriched with other activities.

We tried to bring that beautiful and charming side of him, so we tried other options to entertain him. Our goal was to let him know he could have fun without using his wings. We showed him that he was accepted and it was amazing, it was really, really relieving.

One such activity revolves around a dollhouse he has adopted as his own.

I have a large dollhouse which is now hers. If you touch the house, he chases you. He kind of thinks this house is like his property.

A teacher who moved to Liverpool was surprised to find a rag doll sealed into a wall – with a note claiming the doll had killed the previous owners.

Content of the article

Jonathan Lewis, 32, said the liverpool echo he was making repairs in the house he had just bought when he broke through a wall with a hammer to get a closer look at an electrical outlet.

Instead, he discovered an old child’s toy, a rag doll with braided yarn, sitting looking at him through the hole in the wall.

The doll had a menacing note under its small cloth arm.

Lewis, 32, said Liverpool Echo, the note contained a grim message:

“Thank you for freeing me! My name is Emily. My first owners lived in this house in 1961.

“I didn’t like them, so they had to leave. All they did was sing and have fun. It was sickening.

“Stabbing was my choice of death for them, so I hope you have knives.

“Hope you’re sleeping well.”

Despite the date on the note, Lewis is quite sure the doll was placed inside the wall during a kitchen renovation that took place four or five years ago – a construction detail provided by the real estate agent.

He said the paper the note was written on didn’t look particularly aged.

And he finds the incident rather amusing.

He told the Echo that finding the doll made him laugh.

“I’ll be honest, I found the whole thing hilarious. I would probably do the exact same thing,” he said.

The response from his friends was to tell him to put the house back on the market and flee immediately.

Dangerous dolls have been a staple of the horror genre since the arrival of Chucky in the late 1980s.

More recently, Annabelle is the doll that will scare moviegoers, and the doll in The boy is also completely creepy.

With a plethora of amazing beaches, the counties are great places to live when the weather starts to improve. And that’s exactly what happened this week with sunshine and warm weather dominating a fairly dry week.

The lovely Sussex we’ve been experiencing for most of this week is set to continue over the weekend. This is due to a high pressure system that made its way from North Africa.

The mercury will rise from today (May 13), with temperatures in parts of the UK likely to reach near the 25C mark at some point over the next few days. It would be the hottest day of the year so far.

In Brighton today, temperatures are expected to reach 14C. On Saturday, a fairly sunny day will see temperatures hit 18°C ​​while despite being cloudier on Sunday, temperatures could reach 20°C.

It’s a similar story in Worthing with temperatures peaking at 20C on Sunday. Further along the coast and in Eastbourne, temperatures will peak at 18C on Sunday.

Forecasts, however, call for temperatures to continue to rise as we head into next week. On Tuesday (May 17) and Wednesday (May 18), temperatures in Brighton will hit 21C and in Crawley we could see highs of 22C (compared to 21C expected on Sunday).

As the warm front arrives this weekend, there is also a warning that thunderstorms could arrive in the area. If there are any in Sussex, these should hit late Saturday until early Sunday morning.

There could also be more showers in the region next week, although temperatures are expected to continue to rise. The Met Office long range weather forecast for Tuesday May 17th to Thursday May 26th reads: “A variable start to the period; cloudy with outbreaks of heavy rain locally in the west and south-west, but mostly dry and sunny spells expected further north and east.

“Generally light winds with breezes expected along the western and northern coasts. Mid-week the west and northwest will likely see cloudy weather and rain, with a chance of heavy showers and thunderstorms The south and southeast should hold out for longer in drier weather, but even those areas are likely to see similar rain and downpours.

“The more unsettled weather may become more widespread over the weekend and into the following week. Widely warm or hot everywhere, possibly warm in the south and southeast earlier in the period.”

Fresh off of her second Tony Award win last year for “The Sound Inside,” Marie-Louise Parker earned a follow-up nomination in the same category for her work in the revival of Paula Vogel“How I Learned to Drive”, Pulitzer Prize winner. Parker returned to the haunting play 25 years after originating the Off-Broadway role, reuniting with her co-stars David Morse – who also collected an offer – and Johanna dayno longer director Marc Brokawa.

This nomination not only celebrates her exemplary performance, but also places Parker in an extremely exclusive list of performers who have garnered at least five Best Actress nominations. Her first offer was in 1990, when she performed “Prelude to a Kiss.” More than a decade later, Parker earned his second nomination for “Proof” and took home the award. Over the next two decades, she earned another nomination for “Reckless” in 2005 and last year for “The Sound Inside,” which earned her the second trophy of her career. This year, “How I Learned to Drive” marks its fifth.

TO SEE the full list of nominees for the 2022 Tony Awards

With five nominations to his credit, Parker is tied with Stockard Channing, Cherry Jonesand Laura Linney. Channing’s first offer here came in 1985 for “Joe Egg,” for which she won her first Tony. Six years later, she earned a second Best Actress nomination for “Six Degrees of Separation” and another the following year for “Four Baboons Worshiping the Sun.” In 1999 she returned with “The Lion in Winter” and more than a decade later picked up her most recent nomination for “Other Desert Cities.” Channing has more overall nominations than Parker: She also has featured actress offers for “The House of Blue Leaves” and best actress in a musical for “Pal Joey.”

Just like Parker, Jones has earned five nominations during her career and they are all in the Best Actress category. Her tally begins in 1991 with “Our Country’s Good,” which she followed with a nomination and win in 1995 for “The Heiress.” Since 2000, Jones has three other nominations, for “A Moon for the Misbegotten”, “Doubt”, for which she won her second award, and most recently “The Glass Menagerie”.

Linney also has five bids in that same category, although she has never won. She got those quotes for “The Crucible” in 2002, “Sight Unseen” in 2005, “Time Stands Still” in 2010, “The Little Foxes” in 2017 and “My Name is Lucy Barton” in 2020, a run that she lost. to Parker.

TO SEE 2022 Tony Awards nominations: “A Strange Loop” leads with 11, “The Lehman Trilogy” at 8

Only four other women have won more nominations in this category. Joan Alexander racked up six bids in Best Actress and eight overall. She only won one competition in 1969 for “The Great White Hope,” and she has an honorary Tony in 1995 for her role as president of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Colleen Dewhurst beats Alexander by one in the category with seven Best Actress nominations. She won for “A Moon for the Misbegotten” in 1974 to go along with her featured actress award in 1961 for “All the Way Home.”

Rosemary Harris has eight Best Actress nominations and nine overall. She has only won once, for ‘The Lion in Winter’ in 1966. Her most recent nomination was in 2010 for Featured Actress for ‘The Royal Family,’ and she received the Lifetime Achievement award in 2019.

Julie Harris garnered 10 Tony nominations, including nine for Best Actress. She first won in 1952 for “I Am a Camera” and again in 1956 for “The Lark”. She has three more wins for “Forty Carats” in 1969, “The Last of Mrs. Lincoln” in 1973, and “The Belle of Amherst” in 1977. She also received the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002.

If Parker wins, she will tie Jessica Tandy and Zoe Caldwell three Best Actress trophies; Harris is the only one with more with five. But Parker would go down in Tony Awards history as the first to win this race twice in a row. During the last years, Judith Light won Best Featured Actress consecutively in 2012 for “Other Desert Cities” and 2013 for “The Assembled Parties”, and Laurie Metcalf did so in every category, with an acting win for “A Doll’s House, Part 2” in 2017 and a star for “Three Tall Women” in 2018.

The Chili Doll Hospital was a place where “sick” dolls went to recover.

Doll “doctor” Linda Greenfield ran the Buffalo Road business, which included a Victorian doll museum that displayed her collection of over 3,000 dolls. Greenfield provided appraisals and repaired dolls brought to her store or mailed in by customers across the country.

The job may involve putting damaged limbs back in place, remaking wigs, repairing cracks, or reinstalling glass eyes. Some of the dolls had been passed down from generation to generation and were made of porcelain or biscuit. Some were more modern versions, like Barbies that had seen better days.

One customer called the place “a beautiful little gem in Rochester” and early advertisements called Greenfield “truly a Florence Nightingale of the doll world”. Greenfield got to work early, starting at home as a teenager before moving to an old store her parents had bought for the burgeoning business.

Linda Greenfield works on a doll in 1978 at the Chili Doll Hospital and the Victorian Doll Museum.

A 1969 Upstate magazine article described Greenfield and his “hospital”, which was still in the family’s Marshall Road home. Then aged 17, Greenfield had already been there for three years. In one room, “every corner of every chair is filled with dolls dressed in their best antique salon”.

Greenfield started collecting dolls when she was 8 years old. A rare doll she obtained, called Bye-Lo, sparked interest that took her beyond the hobbyist. Greenfield took a correspondence course in doll repair, but was mostly self-taught.

KRYVYI RIH, Ukraine — The solicitation of treason came to Oleksandr Vilkul on the second day of the war, during a phone call from a former colleague.

Mr Vilkul, the scion of a powerful political family in southeastern Ukraine that has long been seen as harboring pro-Russian views, answered the call as Russian troops advanced within a few miles of his hometown, Kryvyi Rih.

“He said, ‘Oleksandr Yurivich, you look at the map, you see the situation is predetermined,'” Mr Vilkul said, recalling the conversation with a fellow minister in a former pro-Russian Ukrainian government.

“Sign a friendship, cooperation and defense agreement with Russia and they will have good relations with you,” the former colleague said. “You will be a great person in the new Ukraine.”

The offer failed spectacularly. Once the war started, Mr. Vilkul said, the gray area seeped into Ukrainian politics for him. The missiles hitting his hometown made the choice obvious: he would fight back.

“I responded with profanity,” Mr. Vilkul said in an interview.

If the first months of the war in Ukraine turned into a military debacle for the Russian army – deflating the reputation of its commanders and troops during a forced retreat from kyiv – the Russian invasion also highlighted another glaring failure: Moscow’s flawed analysis of the politics of the country it was attacking. The miscalculation led to errors no less costly in lives for the Russian army than the erroneous tactics of the tank operators who headed for the bogs.

The Kremlin went to war hoping for a quick and painless victory, predicting that President Volodymyr Zelensky’s government would fracture and key officials in the largely Russian-speaking eastern region would gladly switch sides. This does not happen.

Political myopia was greatest in the east of the country, according to political analysts.

In all but a few villages, Russia failed to sway local politicians to its side. Ukrainian authorities opened 38 treason cases, all targeting low-level officials in individual treason cases.

“No one wanted to be part of this thing behind the wall,” said Kostyantyn Usov, a former Kryvyi Rih lawmaker, referring to Russia’s isolated and authoritarian system.

He said this system had a dismal appeal in Ukraine and noted the lack of widespread collaboration with Russia, including among Ukrainians who speak Russian and share the country’s cultural values.

“We are part of something brilliant,” he said of Ukraine. “It’s here, with us, in our group. And they have nothing to offer.

Other prominent, once Russian-leaning politicians, including Ihor Terekhov, the mayor of Kharkiv, and Hennady Trukhanov, the mayor of Odessa, also remained loyal and became fierce defenders of their cities.

Alongside the rulers of the southeast, the Ukrainians also resisted. Street protests against the occupation in Kherson continue despite the deadly dangers to participants. A man stood in front of a tank. Kryvyi Rih miners and steelworkers have shown no sign of pivotal allegiance to Russia.

“Before the war, we had ties with Russia,” said Serhiy Zhyhalov, 36, an engineer at a steelworks, referring to family, linguistic and cultural ties. But no more, he said. “No one doubts that Russia attacked us.”

The southeastern regions of Ukraine, a stretch of steppes and devastated industrial and mining towns, are now at the center of the fighting in the war.

Driving south from kyiv, the highway leaves behind the dense pine forests and reed swamps of northern Ukraine, and the landscape opens up to vast plains. The agricultural fields extend to the horizons, in rapeseeds with brilliant yellow flowers or plowed black earth.

In many ways, the region is linked to Soviet and Russian history. The iron and coal industries have shaped southeastern Ukraine. In and around the city of Kryvyi Rih are iron ore deposits; coal is further east, near the city of Donetsk.

The two mining basins, known as Kryvbas and Donbas, gave rise to a metallurgical industry that attracted many nationalities from the Tsarist and Soviet empires from the late 19th century, with Russian becoming the lingua franca in the mining towns. The villages remained predominantly Ukrainian.

For years, the region has elected Russian-leaning politicians such as Mr. Vilkul, a favorite villain of Ukrainian nationalists for promoting Soviet-style cultural events that have angered many Ukrainians. He organized, for example, a one-on-one evening in Kryvyi Rih to sing “Katyusha”, a Russian song associated with the Soviet victory in World War II.

More concretely, Mr. Vilkul rose in politics under former pro-Russian President Viktor F. Yanukovych, in whose government he served as Deputy Prime Minister until street protesters deposed Mr. Yanukovych in 2014. .

Much of the rest of Yanukovych’s cabinet fled with him to Russia. But Mr Vilkul remained in Ukraine as the de facto political leader of Kryvyi Rih while his aging father served as the town’s mayor.

And he caught the attention of Moscow. In 2018, Mr Vilkul said in the interview, he was told by an intermediary that “the days of chaos were over” and that he now had to follow orders from Moscow if he wanted to remain in politics in the south. -is. He said he refused.

The Russians, he said, hadn’t even bothered to woo him, they had only made demands. He said Moscow has taken the same approach to other politicians in eastern Ukraine. “They didn’t even try to convince us,” he said. “They just thought we would be on their side a priori.”

Credit…David Guttenfelder for The New York Times

On the eve of the war, Mr. Vilkul was quite possibly the Russian politician in Ukraine with the broadest popular support. “I was alone at this level,” he said. He was also seen by Moscow as a promising potential convert to his side during the invasion of Ukraine.

That’s when the call came in to Mr. Vilkul’s mobile phone from Vitaly Zakharchenko, a Ukrainian in exile in Russia who had served as interior minister under Mr. Vilkul in Mr. Yanukovych’s government. He recommended Mr. Vilkul to cooperate with the Russians.

“I told him to get lost,” Mr Vilkul said. “I didn’t even think about it.”

Mr Vilkul said he had been misunderstood – by Russian leaders and his nationalist opposition at home. A great-grandfather, he said, had fought White Russians in the Civil War. The Vilkul family, he said, “have been fighting the Russians on this land for a hundred years.”

The Kremlin, he said, had misinterpreted its respect for World War II veterans and support for Russian-speaking rights as potential support for a renewed Russian empire, which he called a mistake . He called the Russians “classic megalomaniacs”.

“They took the common language and values ​​such as attitudes towards World War II and orthodoxy as a sign that someone loved them,” he said.

A second offer, this time made publicly by another Ukrainian exile, Oleh Tsaryov, in a Telegram message, came about a week later when Russian troops had advanced within six miles of the town. “My fellow party members and I have always taken a pro-Russian stance,” the message said, referring to Mr. Vilkul and his father, and added ominously that “cooperation with the Russian military means the preservation of the city and lives”.

Mr. Vilkul responded with an obscene Facebook post.

In the early days of the invasion, Mr. Vilkul ordered mining companies in the area to park heavy equipment on the runway at the city’s airport, thwarting an air assault, and on access roads, slowing down traffic. tank columns. The tires then burst and the engines were disabled.

The city’s steel industry began producing tank barriers and armor vest plates. Mr. Zelensky, whose hometown is Kryvyi Rih, appointed Mr. Vilkul the city’s military governor on the third day of the war, despite the two having been political opponents in peacetime.

Mr. Vilkul has taken to wearing fatigues and a camouflage bandana. A parade of Ukrainian nationalists, including the leader of the right sector paramilitaries, Dmytro Yarosh, and a prominent activist and military officer, Tetiana Chernovol, once sworn enemies of the Vilkul family, came to his office to shake his hand.

“If we’re fighting the Russians,” he said, “have we ever been really pro-Russian, in essence?”

House of the Dragon: What Rickard Stark means for the Game of Thrones spin-off https://cprs-palestine.org/house-of-the-dragon-what-rickard-stark-means-for-the-game-of-thrones-spin-off/ Thu, 05 May 2022 17:42:57 +0000 https://cprs-palestine.org/house-of-the-dragon-what-rickard-stark-means-for-the-game-of-thrones-spin-off/ Interestingly, although this character is definitely called “Rickard” in Dragon House, in Martin’s History of Westerosi, his closest analogue is called “Rickon”.

Interestingly, although this character is definitely called “Rickard” in Dragon House, in Martin’s History of Westerosi, his closest analogue is called “Rickon”. It’s likely the show’s writers chose to change his name to Rickard to avoid confusion with Ned’s youngest child in The iron Throne called Rickon. Most viewers would know that name better than Ned’s father, Rickard.

Whatever his name is, this Rickard Stark in Dragon House fills the same role that nearly every Stark filled before Ned went south in The iron Throne: he is the Lord of Winterfell, and Guardian of the North. The lords of Winterfell very rarely come out of the far reaches of the North. The region they rule is geographically massive and quite different culturally from the rest of the kingdom to the south. If a Stark Lord needs to visit King’s Landing, they’ll need a very compelling reason to do so.

And yet, in this trailer, we see Lord Rickard in the Iron Throne Room alongside other great lords like Corlys Velaryon of Driftmark and Boremund Baratheon of Storm’s End. So what brought Rickard to the viper political abyss that is the Red Keep? In other words: inheritance. This Dragon House The trailer and Lord Rickard Stark’s involvement in it sets up a hugely important political event that will eventually lead to one of the most destructive wars in Westeros history.

Have you ever wondered why most dynasties of The iron Throne world operate according to a model of succession by primogeniture in which male descendants always take precedence over females? Maybe not, because even in our own western world, primogeniture has long been the de facto law of the land in many parts. But does anyone in the The iron Throne has the universe already come together to settle things and establish male heirs as the declared preference of the kingdom? Well, it turns out they did!

Long before the events of The iron Throne and even before the events of Dragon House, King Jaehaerys I assembled a grand council of Westerosi lords to determine who should succeed him on the Iron Throne. Jaehaerys was a great and much-loved monarch, but his family tree was a bit of a mess after the untimely deaths of several of his chosen successors. In the end, the Grand Council decided that the most important element for them in a successor was maintaining primogeniture. Therefore, Jaehaerys I’s grandson Viserys was chosen as heir and effectively ascended the throne after Jaehaerys’ death.

How did the current King Viserys I respect his supporters’ desire to maintain primogeniture? By naming his daughter Rhaenyra as his heir, of course. And that’s the moment we see in this Dragon House trailer. Rickard Stark, Corlys Velaryon and Boremund Baratheon all promise to be loyal to King Viserys AND to his heiress named Princess Rhaenyra.

Rapper Fredo Bang took to Twitter on Sunday to deny sleeping with Jada Kingdom and paying a large sum to do so.

Last week, Asian Doll, during a spat with her ex-BFF Jada Kingdom, alleged that the dancehall DJ slept with Fredo Bang for money. Jada signed a deal with Republic Records, a New York-based record label owned by Universal Music Group. She also made Florida her home, where she bought a house and mixed in the hip-hop industry.

It seems her efforts to make friends aren’t working well as one of her friends, Asian Doll, has spilled several allegations, which Jada hasn’t denied.

Asian claimed that Jada slept with Fredo Bang for $10,000, but Jada corrected her noting that it was $35,000.

Fredo Bang, however, denies being the same person the two women name.

“Definitely a different Fredo,” he said in a tweet reposting an article with the claim.

“35 What,” he added in another tweet.

The rapper appeared tickled by all the drama as he also tweeted a video where he laughed.

“I swear you’ll lay on top of me,” he said in the video, laughing.

On Friday, Jada claimed she wasn’t giving away her “product” for free when responding to Asian Doll.

“B***ch said I sold my pussy once for 10K. Lies…It was actually 35K USD. Please state the facts as that is not what I told you,” wrote Jada on her Instagram stories.

“At least you know I’m not here unless the money talks.” My product is good as gold so it definitely has a price,” Jada added while claiming that she knows 11 people Asian Doll has slept with. “You can’t name 5 nif I sold my pand that’s why you’re really mad because I’m not a thot or a homie like you.

Asian Doll did not react to the latest developments. The former friends have been going back and forth on social media over the past week, leading fans to believe their broken friendship is beyond repair.
