Studio Ghibli Will Stop Making Movies

Spirited Away Studio Ghibli

Spirited Away Studio Ghibli

[UPDATE: Anime News Network reports that although Studio Ghibli is indeed closing down development on new movies, the decision could simply be a "housecleaning" and not a permanent shutdown. Our original article, complete with a sad obituary for Studio Ghibli that may or may not actually be necessary, is below.]

There are very few movie studios that are known for producing consistently excellent movies. We all know what Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures are, but they produce just as many bad films as they do good ones. Even Pixar's once-stellar reputation has been http://storify.com/futuristic385/the-lion-king-musical-is-the-first-to-gross-dollar sullied of late after mediocre efforts like Cars 2 and (arguably) Brave. But Studio Ghibli - the animation studio behind animated classics like My Neighbor Totoro, Grave of the Fireflies, Spirited Away and The Wind Rises - has been consistently producing classics for decades, earning avid fans the world over and inspiring one generation of filmmakers after another to use the medium to express the most beautiful and timeless aspects of their imaginations.

Which makes it all the more sad that now, after 29 years of cinematic excellence, Studio Ghibli appears to be shutting down production on new motion pictures. To say that this would be the end of era would be a serious understatement. Studio Ghibli will continue to exist but focus its efforts on its existing trademarks, not new feature films.

The news came directly from Studio Ghibli's general manager Toshio Suzuki on Japanese television. The news was translated - somewhat roughly - by Oh-Totoro.com (via Coming Soon), and reads as follows:

"Just moments ago, Toshio Suzuki, Studio Ghibli producer, announced on the TV show of the MBS Jounetsu Tairiku chain effectively as announced as sources close to the studio, Studio Ghibli will close and production studio anime, leaving himself only as a company that will manage its trademarks. As stated in the program's producer, "the production department of anime will be dismantled," which coincides with the data that we gave in our previous post on this decision had been taken from spring after the poor reception at the box office of Kaguya-hime no Monogatari.

In the interview, Suzuki has also admitted that it was a major setback for the study progress Hayao Miyazaki, one of the reasons already unveiled the portal Rakuten Woman. Once we have access to the full TV interview, adding more data. No doubt that this is a very sad news for Japanese animation, of which we are all fans, because it is undeniable everything Studio Ghibli has given the anime. Please remember that what will be his last film, Omoide no Marnie, premiered at the Japanese box office on 19 July."

Studio Ghibli made the announcement not long after filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, who co-founded the company and directed most http://gutturalquery2025.webs.com/apps/blog/show/42402851-11-facts-about-the-lion-king-on-broadway-the-first-musical-to-net-1-billion of his undisputed classics for the studio, officially went into retirement upon completion of this year's Oscar-nominated The Wind Rises. Although Miyazaki received the most international acclaim for Studio Ghibli - having directed such landmark films as My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away - the studio also produced motion pictures from such impressive filmmakers as Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies), Hiromasa Yonebayashi (The Secret World of Arrietty) and Hayao Miyazaki's own son, Goro Miyazaki (From Up on Poppy Hill).

Although the films of Studio Ghibli will live on, and although the possibility that it will once again open its doors to new filmmakers is not outside the realm of possibility, it's hard not to report this news as something akin to an obituary. For surely, audiences will have lost something magical.

The final feature film of Studio Ghibli, Hiromasa Yonebayashi's When Marnie Was There, was released on July 19, 2014 in Japan. (No American release date has been scheduled as of this writing.) Studio Ghibli's second-to-last production, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, is slated for a North American release on October 17, 2014.

How to fix your Facebook privacy settings

USA Today, news source 4:20 p.m. MDT July 27, 2014

A view of the Facebook logo on a computer.(Photo: Ted Aljibe, AFP/Getty Images)

Q: I can't keep up with Facebook's changes to its privacy policies. Is there an app or service I can use that will take care of my privacy settings for me? I really don't want to share some of the things I post with everyone in the world.

A: I know it's tough, but I recommend learning Facebook's privacy settings anyway, so you know exactly what it shares -- click here for my step-by-step guide. Particularly, go to your profile page and next to the View Activity Log button, click the three dots and choose View As... . This lets you see what strangers and friends can see on your profile, so you know if your settings are working. That being said, you can take a look at apps like AVG PrivacyFix as a backup. This helps you manage your privacy settings on Facebook, Google and LinkedIn. It will update you on any new Facebook privacy changes.


Q: I was really excited to start playing on my brand-new tablet, but then I read that tablets can get viruses. Is this true? Do I need anti-virus software?

A: Yes and yes! There have already been a few tablet-specific viruses, and it's only a matter of time before they become widespread. For anti-virus software, check outLookout Mobile Security or avast! Free Antivirus. These also work for smartphones.

It helps to make sure your tablet is up to date with the latest security fixes. To update an iPad, go to Settings > General Software Update. For Androids, it's Settings > System Updates. I also recommend switching your phone's default browser, too.Chrome and Opera Mini are both excellent mobile browsers, and a bit more secure than the defaults.


Q: My wife and I recently bought a new camper and plan to take the summer off and hit the road. We just need a way to download your show's podcasts and play them through the camper's built-in speakers while driving. How do you do that? Love your show!

A: The best way to download and play podcasts is with an iPod, smartphone or tablet. If the camper's stereo has an auxiliary-in port, you can plug your gadget straight in with a 3.5mm cable. For stereos that don't have that, look into getting an FM transmitter.

An FM transmitter plugs in to your media player and sends an FM signal you can pick up on the radio. Even better, FM transmitters are relatively cheap, and you can buy them at most retail stores that sell car and audio accessories.


Q: I'm often out and about for my job, and I occasionally have to digitize paper documents. Is there a better way to do this than by lugging around a scanner with me?

A: If you already have a smartphone or tablet, you're set. The built-in camera can do the job with the right app. CamScanner and Genius Scan are two good options. These automatically adjust exposure and perspective, and then crop the image to create a quality scan. You can save a single scan as a JPG or save a group of scans as a PDF file. Send them to a computer or through e-mail and you're done.


Q: I want to put together a collection of photographs I've been collecting on my mission trips and put them into a coffee-table book. What's the best program to use to lay it out, and how do I market it so I can hopefully make some money in the process?

A: Blurb and Shutterfly are good places to start. These help you create, print and sell photo books. If you want full control over the book layout, you can try a program likeScribus. This free layout and publishing program is similar to Microsoft Publisher or Adobe InDesign. It lets you save the finished product as a PDF to upload to a printing or selling site. When you have the finished product, you can sell the printed book or sell it as an e-book. Look at sites like ePub Bud, YooOffer or Amazon Createspace.

On the "Kim Komando Show," the nation's largest weekend radio talk show, Kim takes calls and dispenses advice on today's digital lifestyle, from smartphones and tablets to online privacy and data hacks. For her daily tips, newsletters and more, visit www.komando.com. One of many areas that Facebook is seeking to develop is video. Earlier this season, the corporation acquired a video promotion platform that enables publishers to monetize their movies through live command Liverail,. "People think mobile program install adverts are a bulk of our mobile advertising and they're not," states COO Sheryl Sandberg. She sees cell marketing for FB as much more extensive, consisting of of in- feed ads via many different publishing companies and ad programmers.

"I think for some time television was for creative story telling and online advertisements were for targeted text based results, but were' since change," claims Sandberg. Component of the strategy going forward may be making like they are part of the user-content, an effortlessly chain of narratives -- not merchandise pressing of FB the advertisements feel. The firm is also toying with auto-play, having when consumers stop scrolling in their newsfeed movies automatically start. Mobile marketing totaled $9.69 million in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA in 2013 and will grow 83 per cent to reach $17.73 million this year, according to eMarketer. Although FB is developing, Google is nonetheless on top: It required 41.5 percent of all net U.S. mobile advertising earnings in 2013.E-mail her at Glad I read this techcomments@usatoday.com.

Kim Kardashian Posts Odd Bikini Video and Eddie Murphy's Daughter is a Lovely Young Bikini-Clad Woman

Here's what everybody's gabbing about instead of doing work:

Kim Kardashian almost got run down by a baby elephant while trying to take a selfie (with the pachyderm in the background) in Thailand. Apparently, the elephant didn't like her choice of Instagram filter. In its defense, nobody looks good in Mayfair.

In addition to his hosting gig on "Live! With Kelly and Michael," former football player Michael Strahan will soon be joining the "Good Morning America" crew during its 7 o'clock hour. It's all presumably part of Strahan's calculated plan to star on every current ABC show, perhaps culminating in a recurring role on "The Goldbergs."

"Divergent" star Shailene Woodley wore a white dress with a plunging neckline and monster shoulder pads to the film's Berlin premiere. It's no doubt a bold look, but we don't know how we feel about it yet. Give boy meets world us a minute.

Samuel L. Jackson's love of the old ABC series "Boy Meets World" cannot be professed in mere words. Nay, he feels so strongly about the Ben Savage sitcom that needed to pay tribute in verse on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon."

Eddie Murphy's daughter Bria has said she wants to be a Victoria's Secret model, and she certainly made a good case on Tuesday while playing volleyball in a tiny gold bikini.

Ivanka Trump's cute new Instagram picture proves that she practices yoga at home with her 2-year-old daughter, and not some fancy trainer. She's just like us! Except there's no baby grand piano in our impeccably decorated NYC high-rise apartment.

In an April Fool's prank that gets sadder the more you think about it, Maria Menounos tricked her parents into thinking she and her boyfriend of 15 years had finally tied the knot in Vegas.

Producer Harvey Weinstein has confirmed that he's trying to convince Taylor Swift to write the music to an upcoming musical he's working on, presumably about spurned women expressing their displeasure for former boyfriends through song.

Speaking of musicals, Courtney Love told NME that a musical production based on the life of her late husband Kurt Cobain is "very likey" to happen. But for any Nirvana fans out there, let's never comes to fruition.

Nickelodeon's "Sam & Cat" hasn't yet been renewed for a second season, and it probably has something to do with star Jennette McCurdy's racy seflies showing up on the internet last month.

Selecting The Best Portable Generator

Portable generators have become an important component of our lives. They provide an alternative source of electrical power when the grid power is not in operation. They also provide power to areas not covered by the grid system. A portable generator can provide service in construction sites, camping sites and even on recreational vehicles.

Portable generators use fuel from any number of sources. Fuel sources include gasoline, diesel, propane, natural gas or bio-diesel. The fuel type used also has a bearing on the cost of the portable generator. Most generators receive fuel from on board tanks and therefore only operate for a limited period.

Gasoline Powered

Stabilized gasoline has a shelf life of about two years after which it needs to be discarded. Gasoline powered generators need frequent maintenance to prevent cold weather start up problems caused by gum deposits on the fuel system.

Diesel Powered
