Neena Gupta solved a problem which remained unsolved for 70 long years, until 2013. The problem is known as Zariski’s Cancellation problem, put forth by mathematician Oscar Zariski: if there be a field K and K1 and K2 be the finitely generated extensions of it and let x1 and x2 be transcendental over K1 and K2, respectively; now, if K1(x1) = K2(x2), must K1 and K2 be K-isomorphic? Gupta solved the conjecture with an ingenious counterexample.
We regret to announce that we will no longer be playing Louder Than Life Festival & will unfortunately be unable to reschedule the shows in Mexico City & San Diego cancelled earlier this year. Whilst the surgeries Austin underwent earlier this summer went well, it is important that we allow him time to recover so that we may come back in 2016 stronger than ever. Refunds for the Mexico City & San Diego shows can be sought at their point of purchase.
Now that Syfy has cancelled Dominion, we want to get the show on Netflix’s radar to give it a chance to live on.
From October 18 to 24 (Sun through Sat), we will be having daily half hour-long tweetouts – every day at 10 AM and 10 PM EDT.
Please tweet as much as you can directly to @Netflix, using only the two hashtags #Dominion and #Netflix.
Tell Netflix why they should pick up Dominion (but try to keep the
message positive). Make it clear to them that we want a new season of Dominion produced by Netflix (don’t just ask for them to carry Dominion —
we don’t want them to think we mean Seasons 1 and 2 only). Tweet images
of wings to keep the angels in flight. Post memes or other graphics if
you like. Anything goes, as long as it’s not inappropriate.
It will help if you emphasize that you will watch Netflix, either more than you already do, or for the first time if you don’t currently. We will support them if they support us!
If you like, you’re encouraged to change your Twitter icon to something Dominion-related for the tweetouts or the entire week. (Preferably this would have the word “Dominion” prominently displayed on the icon because people outside the fandom might not recognize pictures from the show.)
Kotaku has acquired reports saying that the game is no longer in development, and that the resources being poured into it are being rerouted to other projects.
While Square Enix have neither confirmed nor denied this rumor, they are still expected to have an announcement coming up soon regarding not only the status of the game but also some upcoming title they have been hinting towards. The company is hosting an event in late August/early September, where an update on their dealings is expected to take place.
Hopefully, some light will be shed on this issue, as it does appear that the project is done for. Perhaps resources have been shifted to a rumored Final Fantasy XIII-3?
Considering Community’s reliance on meta-humor and constant cancellation threats, it was inevitable that the possible end of the show would be worked into the script. In the episode “Basic Sandwich,” Greendale Community College is going to be shut down and replaced with a Subway training facility unless the central study group can somehow stop it. Facing their uncertain future, Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta (Gillian Jacobs) decide to get married, which Abed (Danny Pudi) describes as a desperate attempt to create a spin-off that will inevitably only last six episodes.
It was canceled after four seasons, with the final episode going unaired. The audio for “Bye Bye, Beavers” is available, though, and it’s a hoot. Norb and Dag break the fourth wall to address the show’s cancellation as well as the truth that cartoons are not real. With dialog like “Maybe if they had promoted it,” and an explanation about how syndication costs the network, and earns the creators nothing, Nickelodeon was not a fan and left viewers with the penultimate segment “Shell Or High Water,” in which the boys build sandcastles, blissfully unaware of their pending doom.
In the episode “S.O.B.’s,” the Bluth family loses its lawyer and throws a “Save Our Bluths” fundraiser to try to raise money to keep its legal representation. But the episode is in no uncertain terms a plea for Fox to keep the show on the air. Arrested Development was a ratings failure, so this episode is packed with traditional viewer-grabbing stunts like a guest star, a bit of 3-D, and the promise of a character death. Some of the Bluths get jobs to be “more relatable,” addressing another complaint about the show, and the characters wonder if they can get help from the Home Builders Association (HBO) before putting on a dinner show (Showtime) in a bid for one of those networks to pick them up
What do you think about Hannibal being cancelled? Do you think Netflix or Hulu or someone will pick it up?
I knew it was done when Bryan Fuller discussed his relationship with Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen in the past tense on the Dinner Party show last night. You should have seen me moping over s'mores last night. Just ask my husband. (I didn’t think the props sale was a good sign either.)
Bryan has been clear about considering it unlikely that they would get a new home because of financial changes that a situation like this brings with it, and I suppose he knows what he’s talking about. However, Gaumont and DDLC don’t have a ton of other properties to make money off of right now, so I imagine they’ll be interested in pursuing whatever avenues they can, and I think all the creatives involved want to come back. We can continue to help by doing all the same things we’ve been doing.
I’d be curious to ask what we can do to help at SDCC.
Disney Animation has cancelled both TRON: UPRISING as well as MOTORCITY animated series from their programming block DISNEY XD. Truly innovative looking shows. sad time for action animation. :-( More info below:
FOX CANCELLED “THE MINDY PROJECT”.
WHY DON’T YOU JUST FUCKING KILL ME.
HERE WAS A CLEVER, FUNNY SHOW WHERE THE LEAD CHARACTER WAS A POC, FULL-FIGURED WOMAN WHO PLAYED A DOCTOR, AND THEY WERE IN THE MIDDLE OF A SMART, INTERESTING STORYLINE.
AND YET GLEE HAD THE SHITTIEST STORYLINES AND DESTROYED CHARACTERS AND BUTCHERED TOPICS, AND THEY GOT SIX YEARS. SIX.
HOW DARE YOU. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS.
HULU, PLEASE HELP US!!!
