Correction: Obit-robert Drew Story - Yahoo News

Frederick Wiseman, the award-winning documentary maker, would call cinema verite "just a pompous French term that has absolutely no meaning." Drew's "Primary" is widely ranked among the most important political documentaries and in 1990 was entered into the Library of Congress' National Film Registry for historic works. It this link follows presidential candidates and fellow Democrats Sen. Hubert Humphrey and Sen. John F. Kennedy as they campaigned in Wisconsin for their party's nomination, which Kennedy eventually received. "Kennedy asked questions about how this would work," Drew later explained. "I told him we were partial to neither side and my website would edit fairly, and for this to work at all, he would have to trust me. He gave me a long look and said, 'If I don't call you by tomorrow, we're on.' And he didn't call, and we were on." Like Theodore White's classic campaign book "The Making of the President, 1960," Drew's film was a new kind of narrative that captured a revolutionary change in politics the ascendance of the telegenic Kennedy over the plainer, chattier style of Humphrey. "Primary" revealed such contrasts as a polite gathering of farmers at a Humphrey speech in a half-empty meeting hall and the large, cheering crowds that showed up for Kennedy's events. <br>More:

Paul Singer Doesn't Understand Why We're So Obsessed With His Li

Of course it would've been easier click for both parties if Singer had not chased Argentina's money around the world from Belgium, to France for the last ten years. A slew of messes that would've been avoided. Like the time Singer sued Elon Musk's Space X for a ride Argentina had purchased as collateral for the country's debt. Or the time Singer got a Ghanaian Court to impound an Argentine naval vessel sitting in its waters. The crew on board was stuck in Ghana for about 2 months in 2012 over that one. Eventually back link they got to leave when the International Maritime Court of the Sea stepped in. Yes, that's a real thing. And no, Singer didn't like that The Court had to step in. In fact he wrote that he doesn't like lawsuits at all, as they are "uncertain, expensive, difficult and time-consuming." Can't argue with that. <br>More:

Asylum-seekers Kept At Sea By Australia To Seek Compensation - Y

The High Court was now considering whether it was legal for Australia to detain the group for nearly a month and, if it was not, whether there was an entitlement to compensation, he said. Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison at a press conference in Sydney on July 25, 2014 anno De Kretser said there was no figure for compensation, saying: "It's far too early for that." Earlier Immigration Minister Scott Morrison said the group had likely been living in India for some time and were essentially economic migrants. "The indications are... that there are a very large number of people on this ship that had been resident in India for a very long time," he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. He said the boat had come from the "safe" nation of India, and had not stopped anywhere else on the way. "They haven't come from Sri Lanka, they haven't come from any of those other countries -- Afghanistan or anything like that," he said. View gallery A woman holds a placard at a rally protesting the Australian government's treatment of Sri Lanka "They have come from India and as a result where they are safe in India, a passage to Australia here is nothing more than an economic migration seeking to illegally enter Australia." - 'Not fleeing persecution' - The group, now being held at the Curtin Detention Centre in Western Australia, is the first batch of asylum-seekers to reach the Australian mainland since December. Morrison said Indian consular officials would travel go here to Curtin to determine their identity and residency, after New Delhi agreed to take back its citizens and consider taking Sri Lankans who were residents. <br>More:

Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 Preview: Can The Offense Turn Things A

3. With so many teams going from worst to first in their respective divisions, how have the Jaguars gone six years in a row without finishing above .500? As bad as the Jaguars were for most of muscle building last year, they weren't the worst team in the AFC South. That dishonor belonged to the Houston Texans , who some experts pegged as a Super Bowl contender. But while the Texans can serve as a cautionary tale for how far a team can fall, the Jaguars have gone from a losing season to making the playoffs just once in the franchise's 20-year history. That came in 1996, when a five-game winning streak to end the season enabled them to qualify as a wild card. <br>Full story:

China Summons Japan Defense Attache Over Jets Dispute - Yahoo Ne

Send Thanks! A link has been sent. Done China summons Japan defense attache over jets dispute 16 hours ago Content preferences Done BEIJING (Reuters) - celebrities China summoned Japan's defense attache on Friday to lodge a protest after the two countries traded accusations over the conduct of military jets above disputed waters, the Defence Ministry said on Saturday. Tensions flared between Asia's two largest economies last week, when each country accused the other of flying military aircraft too close to its own jets. "The Japanese side ignores reality and has flipped right and wrong, making groundless accusations," China's Defence Ministry said in a statement on its website. Tokyo has "persistently taken it upon itself to stir up trouble, often irresponsibly inciting deception and making malicious attacks on the Chinese side," the statement added, calling on Tokyo to "immediately correct the error". Tokyo lodged a protest on Wednesday, when Japan said Chinese fighter jets flew "abnormally close" to Japanese military aircraft over the East China Sea, a charge Beijing rejected. On Thursday, China said two Japanese F-15 planes followed a Chinese Tu-154 aircraft, coming as close as 30 meters, "seriously affecting China's flight safety". <br>Read more:;_ylt=AwrSyCOPYZ5TTWAAPZ__wgt.
