After her adopted brother, Bodhi, finds an old intricrate box containing a map, English librarian Jyn becomes interested in starting an archaeological dig at the ancient city of Hamunaptra. She gains the help of an ex-soildier, Cassian, after saving him from his death. What Jyn, Bodhi and Cassian are unaware of is that another group of explorers are interested in the same dig. Unfortunately for everyone, this group ends up unleashing a curse.

Dear all of you in here! Do you really think Henrik would choose to be represented by someone who’s a homophobe? When they go low - we go love… now let’s go out and be the change we want to see in the world!
Was It All Just Noise? Independent Analysis Casts Doubt On LIGO’s Detections
“After an effort of more than 100 years and a collaboration involving over 1,000 scientists, we all celebrated. It was February 11, 2016, and LIGO had just announced their first direct detection of gravitational waves. Analysis of the data attributed the signal to a black hole merger that happened several billion light years away. But what if there wasn’t a signal at all, but rather patterns and correlations in the noise that fooled us into believing we were seeing something that wasn’t real? A group of Danish researchers just submitted a paper arguing that the celebration might have been premature.”
It revolutionized our view of the Universe when the LIGO annoucements – and we’re up to three, now – came out. They indicated the direct detection of gravitational waves from merging black holes, teaching us about a new population of stellar remnants, confirming the existence of gravitational waves, and showcasing yet another victory for Einstein’s General Relativity. But it all rests on one critical assumption: that what LIGO detected was a gravitational wave signal, not just noise in the detector. A critical test of this is whether the noise is truly random between detectors, as one would expect, or whether the noise is somehow correlated between the detectors, which would run contrary to expectations. An independent team from Denmark, outside of the LIGO collaboration, put this idea to the test, and what they found has cast significant doubts on the LIGO results.
For her first foreign visit of 2017, Crown Princess Mary made a top secret journey to Bangladesh which wasn’t announced until she was already in the country due to security concerns. The future Queen was making the journey in her capacity as an advocate for women’s rights. She has visited countries across the globe to fight for female empowerment but this was her first time in Bangladesh. During her time in the country, she visited a number of projects which promote women and are funded by Danish groups. She took in Farmer Field School, a Danish supported initiative which aims to improve women’s knowledge of farming techniques and the Jaago Foundation which runs schools in vulnerable areas, including slums. She also took in the Auto-Tex textile factory which employs a number of women. Mary’s warmth and compassion immediately won over the crowds of people who came to visit her and she relished the opportunity to learn more about the local context. She particularly focused on the impact of climate change on women as rural areas in the country have been severely affected by flooding, storms and high water levels. Listening to the local women’s stories was a profound experience which clearly left a deep impression on the Crown Princess.
