It’s been at the center of litigation between the developer Fortis and its contractor Pizzarotti over a “slight misalignment” that resulted in the tower leaning three inches to the north.In 2017, a construction worker died after falling from the 29th floor of the project, which resulted in a concrete subcontractor, SSC High Rise Construction, pleading guilty to second-degree manslaughter.Fortis did not immediately return a request for comment.

HUBO. Sumber: thenypost.com Obor Olimpiade semakin menghangat, menandakan perhelatan acara olahraga empat tahunan ini siap digelar di dataran Korea pada Musim Dingin 2018 mendatang. Sudah barang tentu, negara yang identik sebagai pencetak boyband dan girlband kelas wahid di jagad hiburan ini global ini tengah mati-matian mempersiapkan segala sesuatunya, hanya demi pagelaran Olimpiade Musim Dingin ini berjalan dengan lancar. Seperti yang diketahui sebelumnya, Korea akan mempekerjakan puluhan robot untuk membantu tugas manusia dalam acara ini.Baca Juga: Sambut Olimpiade Musim Dingin, LG Hadirkan Dua Robot Canggih di Bandara IncheonBerdasarkan lansiran KabarPenumpang.com dari laman the42.ie (25/12/2017), Korea Selatan akan menggunakan 85 robot yang berbeda satu sama lain selama Olimpiade Musim Dingin 2018. Bahkan salah satu diantara robot-robot tersebut akan mengambil peran sebagai pengantar obor Olimpiade yang menandakan dimulainya perhelatan tersebut. Adalah HUBO, robot humanoid ciptaan Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology ini yang nantinya akan mengantar obor Olimpiade menuju lokasi yang sebelumnya sudah ditentukan. “Rencananya HUBO akan berjalan sejauh 150 meter,” ungkap salah satu narasumber dalam laman tersebut.Melihat dari konsep acaranya, kemungkinan besar ke-85 robot ini akan ‘menjajah’ ruang lingkup pekerjaan yang seyogyanya dilakukan oleh manusia, sebut saja ada robot yang didesain untuk menggambar mural pada salah satu tembok venue. Ada juga robot yang akan mengantarkan pesanan para penonton di lokasi, hingga Fishing Robots yang akan dioperasikan di beberapa venue.Fishing Robot sendiri merupakan salah satu robot yang akan berbicara dan memberikan informasi terkait jadwal pertandingan, sarana transportasi, dan beragam atraksi yang disajikan oleh pihak penyelenggara. Robot ini sendiri memiliki kemampuan untuk berbicara dalam empat bahasa, yaitu Korea, Cina, Jepang, dan tentu saja bahasa Inggris.Jika nanti pengoperasian dari robot-robot ini sukses di Olimpiade Musim Dingin 2018, maka rencananya Jepang akan menggunakan teknologi serupa pada Olimpiade Musim Panas tahun 2020 mendatang. Di luar dari topik pembahasan, perusahaan Fujitsu berharap momen Olimpiade Musim Panas 2020 bisa menjadi debut untuk robot yang sudah dilengkapi dengan sistem sensorik 3D dan kecerdasan buatan yang akan membantu penilaian di cabang olahraga senam indah.Baca Juga: Ini Dia Troika!

Kentucky’s defense has failed to record an interception in each of the last three games and ranks 11th in the SEC in interceptions (11) on the season.If Kentucky is to have any chance at the upset against Mississippi State, forcing Dak Prescott’s first interception of the season will be a good start.Cats hope youth prevails at Mississippi StateMississippi State QB Dak Prescott is tackled by multiple UK defenders during the second half of the University of Kentucky football game against Mississippi State in Lexington, Ky. Saturday, October 25, 2014.“We’ve had our opportunities and we haven’t been able to pull them in,” UK defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot said. “We’ve got to make those plays. And yes, I think there is motivation to play against Dak Prescott. He’s such a great quarterback that when we have success I think that’ll be a good accomplishment.” Limit Prescott’s runsPrescott remains one of the most dangerous dual-threat quarterbacks in the country, but he is averaging almost half as many carries per game as he did in 2014. Prescott remains Mississippi State’s leading rusher at 36.3 yards per game, but Kentucky needs to keep him closer to that total than the 75.8 yards per game he averaged in 2014.Kentucky has struggled to contain scrambling quarterbacks for most of the season, but with Mississippi State’s running backs averaging just 89 rushing yards per game, containing the quarterback run game is all the more important this week.“They don’t have as many rush attempts overall,” Eliot said. “One reason is, I think he’s passing it very well. He is really become an effective passer. He’s calm in the pocket, he makes right decisions and he makes good throws.” Limit offensive mistakesUK offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson said his unit’s performance against Auburn was as close as the offense as looked to what he envisioned this season, but it was mistakes in two or three critical situations that cost the Wildcats the win. As double-digit underdogs on the road, Kentucky has no room for those mistakes against Mississippi State. There can be no interceptions in the end zone, no drops of potential touchdowns or not costly fumbles on the opening drive.“In every game, I’ve had spurts of playing some really, really good football,” junior quarterback Patrick Towles said. “I’ve had some spurts of playing not-so-good football. But I think in that Auburn game, with the exception of really two or three plays, I think I played some pretty good football. I’ve got to continue that and hopefully on Saturday I may turn those two or three plays into maybe one bad play or zero bad plays.” PredictionMississippi State 35, Kentucky 27Two consecutive years of close losses against Mississippi State should give Kentucky plenty of confidence heading into the trip to Starkville, but that confidence will not make the task of stopping Dak Prescott any easier. The guess here is the game plays out much closer than the point spread would suggest, but Kentucky falls just short again.Email Jon Hale at [email protected] . Follow him on Twitter @JonHale_CJ .
Christos Kalohoridis/Netflix(NEW YORK) — Good news for fans of the Netflix series Locke & Key: The show has been renewed for season two.The series, based on the comics by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, follows three siblings who move into a supernatural estate following their father’s murder.“We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of Locke & Key alongside all of our amazing collaborators,” co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter Monday. “We are grateful to Netflix for all their support, especially at this difficult time, and look forward to bringing you the exciting next chapter of our story.”The two had already been working on scripts for a second season before the official renewal. With production mostly shutdown in Hollywood due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, it’s unclear when season two will begin filming.Griffin Gluck, whose character Gabe takes a villainous turn at the end of season one, says he can’t wait for more “mischief” in season two.“I couldn’t expect a thing because whatever I think is going to happen is going to get twisted and turned 700 ways to the point where I’m going to be confused myself and that’s what I love about the show, is you never know what’s going to happen,” Gluck tells ABC Audio.He adds, “I’m just more looking forward to finding out what’s going on…I just hope my character gets into a lot of mischief.”Season one of Locke & Key is streaming on Netflix now.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
