Marvel Studio’s 10th anniversary movie festival is IMAX-only

Published

on

Marvel is going all-out to mark the 10th birthday of its Cinematic Universe, and that includes upgrading the quality of the movies themselves. It’s hosting a 10th Anniversary Film Festival between August 30th and September 6th, and you’ll have to visit “select” IMAX theaters across North America if you want to join in. To that end, it’s promising digital remasters of every movie to take advantage of IMAX’s picture and sound quality, including movies that have never been shown in IMAX before. This will be your first chance to watch Iron ManThe Incredible Hulk and Captain America: The First Avenger in the premium format.

You can already buy tickets for as many of the movies as you like. The first five days of the festival are focused on showing the movies in order (important if you’re new to the MCU). After that, however, it gets interesting: the next two days are themed around origin stories and alliances, while the last day will focus on two titles chosen by a vote that runs until August 17th. If you miss one of the IMAX screenings, there’s a real chance you can catch the relevant movie again before the festival is over.

Driving While Black goes High Tech

Published

The phrase “Driving While Black” has been used in both the public and private discourse relating to the Racial Profiling of Black motorists.The term rose to prominence in public discourse during the 1990s, in the wake of the War on Drugs, when it was brought to public knowledge that police stations across the country were intentionally targeting racial minorities to curb the trafficking and sale of drugs in the United States.For example, New Jersey released state documents in 2000 which showed police training memos instructing officers to make racial judgments in order to identify “Occupant Identifiers for a possible Drug Courier” on the highway.

The phrase was further magnified after the ruling of Whren v. United States (1996), when the Supreme Court of the United States unanimously ruled that police officers may stop any motor vehicle operator if any traffic violation has been observed.The case has been criticized by scholars for allowing too much subjectivity on the part of police officers to use racial bias as a justification for the stop.

Subsequent media coverage of the phrase “Driving While Black” since the 1990s has been expansive and more common.The phrase is often used in anecdotal accounts of racial profiling of motor vehicle operators as well as statistical and legal analyses of racial profiling, a notable example being the case of Tolan v. Cotton.

In 2014 Portland lawyers Melvin Oden-Orr and Marianne Hyland created an app named “Driving While Black” in which users can record police and alert people when they are stopped by police on the road. It also supplies users with information on how to handle a traffic stop, including their legal rights and “best practices” for “how to be safe.”The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) released a similar app called “Mobile Justice” in which users can record and upload videos to the ACLU office.

The phrase DWB was amplified in the scope of American public discourse through social media mediums in which African Americans can record police encounters and disseminate it to a large audience.’Driving While Black’ was invoked in the media following the recent deaths of Sandra Bland (d. 2015) and Philando Castile (d. 2016), both of whom were African Americans who were pulled over by police while driving.
