Speeding ticket turns into multiple charges

A St. Catharines woman faces multiple charges for fleeing police — after first giving an officer her license.Police allege Jessica Jeffrey, age 31, was going more than 30 km over the speed limit when she was stopped in Niagara Falls shortly after midnight Wednesday morning.Her license was then suspended for three days because she had been drinking — but after retrieving her cell phone to call for a ride, Jeffrey jumped back into her car and sped away at more than 140 km/h.Police didn’t pursue her very far — opting to leave a message on her voicemail rather than put the public at further risk.Jeffrey later surrendered to face charges of dangerous driving, fleeing police, driving under suspension, and several other traffic act offences, as well as failing to comply with probation orders. read more

Colombia Robinson voices concern over rise in harassment of rights advocates

“I have seen for myself the commitment and courage of Colombian human rights defenders, who despite horrific violence and ongoing turmoil continue to work tirelessly to build peace and respect for fundamental freedoms in the country,” the High Commissioner said in a statement. She also called on the Government to comply with a key UN rights document, officially known as the UN Declaration on the Right and Responsibility of Individuals, Groups and Organs of Society to Promote and Protect Universally Recognized Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.Mrs. Robinson’s statement cited repeatedly death threats against the executive and members of the Colectivo de Abogados José Alvear Restrepo (José Alvear Restrepo Lawyers’ Group), as well as accusations aimed at disparaging the orgnization’s work and questioning its commitment to human rights.Human rights defenders in the town of Barrancabermeja, the scene of serious rights abuses in the past, have also come under renewed threat, in particular the Organización Femenina Popular (Popular Women’s Organization) and its president, Yolanda Becerra. One of the members, Diofanol Sierra Vargas, was murdered in Barrancabermeja on 8 April of this year.According to reports, most of these acts of violence and intimidation are the work of paramilitary groups. The High Commissioner stressed, however, that she was particularly worried that public servants, and especially members of the security forces, have been repeatedly quoted as making unsubstantiated statements undermining the work of human rights organizations and their members.”This contributes to a climate in which criminals feel they can threaten and attack human rights defenders with impunity,” Mrs. Robinson said. read more

Oil posts slight gain as market watches Syria supplies drop at key

Oil posts slight gain as market watches Syria; supplies drop at key US hub by The Associated Press Posted Sep 11, 2013 4:07 pm MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – The price of oil rose Wednesday as the market waited for the next developments regarding Syria.Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude for October delivery rose 17 cents to close at US$107.56 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.Oil got a lift from the latest U.S. government supply data. The Energy Department said the U.S. supply of oil fell by 200,000 barrels last week. But supplies in Cushing, Okla., site of the biggest U.S. storage hub, fell an even greater 700,000 barrels.The slight gain followed price drops Monday and Tuesday that totalled US$3.14 a barrel, the result of diplomatic efforts to avoid a U.S. strike against Syria.In a televised speech late Tuesday, President Barack Obama said he wanted to give Syria a chance to turn over its chemical weapons before he asks Congress for consent to intervene in the country’s civil war.Oil prices have been at elevated levels for two weeks following Obama’s call for action against the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad in retaliation for what the White House says was a deadly chemical weapons attack against civilians last month.Syria is not a major oil producer, but oil traders say the possibility of a wider conflict could interrupt production and shipping routes in the Middle East and cause prices to rise.Brent, the benchmark for international crudes, rose 25 cents to US$111.50 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London.In other energy futures trading on Nymex:wholesale gasoline fell two cents to US$2.71 a U.S. gallon (3.79 litres), heating oil added one cent to US$3.07 a gallon and natural gas lost two cents to US$3.57 per 1,000 cubic feet.(TSX:ECA), (TSX:IMO), (TSX:SU), (TSX:HSE), (NYSE:BP), (NYSE:COP), (NYSE:XOM), (NYSE:CVX), (TSX:CNQ), (TSX:TLM), (TSX:COS.UN), (TSX:CVE) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Ailes is out as Fox News head Murdoch named acting chief

Ailes is out as Fox News head, Murdoch named acting chief NEW YORK, N.Y. – Roger Ailes is out as chief executive at Fox News Channel, his career at the network he built from scratch and ran with an iron hand for nearly 20 years over with stunning swiftness following allegations that he forced out a former anchor after she spurned his sexual advances.Network parent 21st Century Fox said Thursday that Rupert Murdoch, the company’s executive chairman, would run Fox News and its sister Fox Business Network, which Ailes had also led, until a successor could be found.Murdoch and 21st Century Fox didn’t address the widening scandal in the statement on the resignation but lauded Ailes for his contributions. Ailes didn’t comment in the statement, and no details were given on a settlement agreement.“I am personally committed to ensuring that Fox News remains a distinctive, powerful voice,” Murdoch said. “Our nation needs a robust Fox News to resonate from every corner of the country.”Fox is heading into a general election campaign in its customary spot at the top of the ratings, but without the man who sets its editorial tone.The blustery, 76-year-old media executive built a network that both transformed the news business and changed the political conversation. Fox News Channel provided a television home to conservatives who felt left out of the media, and played a part in advancing a rough-and-tumble style of politics that left many concerned that it was impossible to get things done in government.Ailes’ downfall began with the July 6 filing of a lawsuit by Gretchen Carlson, who charged that he sabotaged her career because she refused his suggestions for sex and complained about a pervasive atmosphere of sexual harassment at Fox. Ailes has denied the charges, but 21st Century Fox hired a law firm to investigate.In a statement, Carlson’s attorneys credited Carlson’s “extraordinary courage” with causing “a seismic shift in the media world.”Several Fox employees jumped to Ailes’ defence, but notably not Megyn Kelly, one of Fox’s top personalities. In rapid succession, it was reported that Kelly was among other women who had told investigators about harassment — again denied by Ailes — and that corporate heads Rupert Murdoch and his sons, James and Lachlan, determined that Ailes had to go. The company has no plans to make results of its investigation public.Within two weeks of the court filing, Carlson’s lawyers also said more than 20 women had contacted the firm with stories of alleged harassment by Ailes either against themselves or someone they knew. Two came forward publicly.Before the charges, Fox’s success had insulated Ailes despite some previous scrapes with the Murdoch sons over who he would report to. Fox News Channel is the parent company’s single most important property, said Pivotal Research Group analyst Brian Wieser, with some estimates that it accounted for nearly a quarter of the company’s profits.Ailes was a prominent Republican media consultant who later ran CNBC before Murdoch asked him to create a cable news network to compete with CNN at the same time MSNBC was starting. Ailes’ slogans, “fair and balanced” and “we report, you decide,” appealed to an audience that believed mainstream outlets didn’t live up to those promises.“He was ahead of his time in recognizing that dividing, not uniting, an audience would be the key to commercial success in the 21st-century cable news business,” said Matt Sienkiewicz, communications professor at Boston College.Ailes hired a combative broadcast journeyman in Bill O’Reilly and turned him into the star of an opinionated prime-time lineup. He directed news coverage and emphasized issues like the so-called “war on Christmas” or the Benghazi investigation that otherwise got little attention. Republican politicians considered Fox the first stop for reaching their intended audience, and they learned to talk tough.He was also a showman. Fox had flashier graphics, brighter colours and a vitality its staid rivals lacked.Critics scoffed at Ailes’ promise that he’d lift Fox to first place. By 2002, he did, and Fox hasn’t looked back.Ailes groomed no obvious successors, and has been so identified with the brand that many have a hard time envisioning the network without him. That could make Fox more broadly palatable, but also risks alienating the audience that has grown to love Fox and made it such a success.“Whoever invented the Coca-Cola formula has long since passed this Earth, but the brand keeps selling because people like the taste,” said Mark Feldstein, a journalism professor at the University of Maryland. “I think that’s how it’s going to be with Roger Ailes. He invented this winning formula and all you have to do is not mess with it too much and it will continue to mint money for you.”___AP Television Writers Frazier Moore in New York and Lynn Elber in Los Angeles and Business Writer Tali Arbel in New York contributed to this report. by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Jul 21, 2016 6:52 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 21, 2016 at 7:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Fines should be doubled for realtors who break rules says Ont association

TORONTO – The Ontario Real Estate Association says fines should be doubled for realtors who break the rules, at a time when agents are collecting big commissions in the province’s inflated housing market.In a white paper published Wednesday, the association proposed that the maximum fines for salespeople who violate a code of ethics under the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act should increase to $50,000. OREA also wants the maximum fine for brokerages doubled to $100,000.“Practices, laws, foreign investment. All these different component pieces of the industry have changed and the regulation needs to change,” said Brad Henderson, CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, who was on the task force that wrote the paper.OREA says the average fine per case last year was just $6,000 and that the effectiveness of fines as a deterrent has “eroded” in today’s real estate landscape, where property prices have reached record highs.The current rules were set in 2002, a lifetime ago for Ontario’s real estate market when the average cost of a home in the province was $211,000. Today it’s $619,000 in Ontario while the average price of a Toronto home has reached $759,000.“For those who willingly break the rules, these fines are ‘the cost of doing business,’” OREA said in its paper. But the paper warned that even if fines are higher, penalties may not be enough to deter rule-breakers because fines do not cover the entire commission earned.“In other words, even under a system of higher fines registrants could still profit from unethical behaviour.”The paper also recommends that the industry regulator, the Real Estate Council of Ontario, be given the ability to force a realtor found in breach of rules to repay all of their profits. OREA also wants RECO to be given the power to suspend or revoke licenses.In a statement, RECO’s Registrar Joseph Richer said it’s important the body get the ability to revoke licenses without having to go through a tribunal. He said RECO investigations led to 28 people losing or being denied licences last year, in addition to 29 convictions.Richer said RECO is also overhauling its education program for people joining the industry.“When it launches, it will include more hands-on experience and more rigorous testing, which will ensure that new entrants to the profession are ready to provide effective services to buyers and sellers on day one,” he wrote.Henderson says there is only a small number of people in the industry who have broken rules, whether due to lack of education, or the allure of higher profits.The white paper is part of a push for changes to discourage potentially unethical real estate practices in Ontario. The province’s 16-point housing plan introduced in April includes a 15 per cent tax on foreign buyers and expanded rent controls, as well as reviews on how consumers are represented by real estate agents.In June, the province proposed a ban on realtors representing both a buyer and a seller in a transaction. The province said sellers seeking the highest price, and buyers looking for the lowest price have competing interests which makes it challenging for a single agent to represent the best interests of either side.“This divided loyalty and the associated risks may leave some consumers vulnerable even when written consent is obtained and the necessary disclosures … have been made,” the government said in a discussion paper.The ban would not apply in some situations such as sales between family members and markets where there are few agents working.—On the web:The white paper is available at http://www.rebbareform.ca/ A real estate sold sign hangs in front of a west-end Toronto property, Friday, Nov. 4, 2016.

Murdoch Mysteries author to unveil writing secrets at Brock

The books might be fiction, but the historical research that goes into them is very real.For acclaimed author Maureen Jennings, the everyday historical details, from the geography of 1917 Toronto to the weather and even the time of sunrises and sunsets are critical to convincing writing.The celebrated Canadian mystery author behind the popular Murdoch Mysteries series will deliver a talk, “It’s in the Details: How to Make A Crime Story Believable,” at Brock University on Tuesday, March 5 during the third annual Marilyn Rose Lecture Series.Jennings’ talk will focus on the final book in her Murdoch Mysteries series, Let Darkness Bury the Dead, set in 1917 Toronto. The novel centres on Detective William Murdoch’s son Jack, who has returned home after being wounded and gassed on the frontline.“The war and what was happening to young men really interested me,” Jennings says of the book’s inspiration. “The more I got into it, the more I became obsessed.”Detective fiction, she says, has allowed her to explore historical events and attitudes.“I’ve loved the mystery genre since I was 12 and discovered Sir Arthur Conan Doyle,” Jennings says. “You can put in a lot of social issues, which I like and create very believable characters.”While researching Let Darkness Bury the Dead, Jennings dove into newspaper and archival sources, including Trench Orders, a First World War instructional pamphlet for officers, and Canada in Flanders, Max Aitken’s official government account of the war. A female ventriloquist act Jennings learned about on a visit to the Canadian War Museum also found its way into the book.Jennings got her start writing plays, short stories and poetry. Her debut novel, 1997’s Except the Dying, brought Toronto’s Victorian past to life with the engaging character of detective William Murdoch and launched her distinguished career in mystery writing.The series was initially picked up by Shaftesbury Films for three TV movies before being picked up by CBC Television. Murdoch Mysteries, now in its 12th season, airs in 110 countries and is one of the network’s most popular shows. Jennings writes one episode each season and serves as the series’ creative consultant.Her second series, the Tom Tyler Mystery Series, also found its way to television with the creation of the show Bomb Girls, which focused on women working in a Second World War munitions factory in Toronto. The show aired for two seasons.Jennings’ latest book series, Paradise Café, brings readers to Toronto in 1936. Its latest instalment, Heatwave, is set to be released March 30 and tells the story of private investigator Charlotte Frayne’s first case.Now based in Toronto, Jennings was born in Birmingham, England, and immigrated to Windsor, Ont., as a teen with her family. She studied philosophy and psychology before earning a Master of Arts degree in English.Copies of Let Darkness Bury the Dead and Except the Dying, the first and last books in the Murdoch Mysteries series, as well as the first two books in the Tom Tyler series, Season of Darkness and Beware this Boy, will be available at Tuesday’s event.The Marilyn Rose Lecture Series was launched in 2017 to honour the memory of English Professor Marilyn Rose, the founding Dean of Brock’s Faculty of Graduate Studies who passed away in 2015.The annual Rose lecture is organized by the Centre for Canadian Studies and the Department of English Language and Literature, in collaboration with the Department of Communication, Popular Culture and Film. Each year’s theme is chosen to reflect Rose’s own passions, which included detective fiction, national and literary iconography, modern and contemporary poetry and Canadian short fiction.“Marilyn had wide-ranging interests and research expertise, but one of her notable areas of focus was the study of crime fiction in Canada,” says Marian Bredin, Associate Professor and Director of the Centre for Canadian Studies. “In light of Marilyn’s work in this area, we thought that Ms. Jennings’ Murdoch Mystery novels and adaptations for television would make a wonderful topic for this year’s lecture.”Rose collaborated with Jeannette Sloniowski, recently retired from the Department of Communication, Popular Culture and Film, on the Crime Fiction Canada Project and the two co-edited Detecting Canada: Essays on Canadian Crime Fiction, Television, and Film.Who: Acclaimed Canadian mystery writer and Murdoch Mysteries creator Maureen JenningsWhat: “It’s in the Details: How to Make A Crime Story Believable,” a talk presented during the third annual Marilyn Rose Lecture Series.When: Tuesday, March 5 at 11 a.m.Where: Sankey Chamber, Brock University read more

Ohio State womens soccer to battle Milwaukee in second round of NCAA

The Ohio State women’s soccer team continues NCAA tournament play Friday in a second-round matchup against Milwaukee at Duke’s Koskinen Stadium in Durham, N.C. The Buckeyes (11-8-2) pulled off a 3-0 opening round upset at regional No. 4-seed Tennessee last Saturday behind a pair of goals from junior forward Tiffany Cameron. For a team that had been in somewhat of a slump offensively to finish the regular season, the trio of goals was a welcome sign and what Cameron called “a great confidence booster.” “I was happy that I could redeem myself because the last game (a penalty shootout loss to Illinois in the Big Ten Tournament), I didn’t get any good shooting opportunities. I wasn’t really that dangerous,” Cameron said. “I was really excited that there was kind of like a second chance.” That second chance is being embraced by the entire team. After losing in the first round of the conference tournament, OSU was not expecting to receive a bid to the national tournament but was selected as an at-large team. After the Buckeyes made a run to the national semifinals in last year’s tournament, this year’s team is trying to prove people wrong, Cameron said. “I think that a lot of people last year thought that we got it easy … our selections and stuff,” she said. “We were the underdogs going into the (Tennessee) game so we felt great that we proved everyone wrong because I’m sure a lot of people thought we were going to lose. So, we just like to prove people wrong and come to play. I don’t think it matters, the rankings really. It just matters what team comes to play at the end of the day.” OSU will need to play at a high level against a Milwaukee team that is 19-2 on the season. The Buckeyes are 0-2 against the Panthers all-time, including a 2-1 loss in Columbus last season. “It’s kind of time to step up and see a different result,” coach Lori Walker said. “I think that we certainly have the talent and I think we play soccer well enough … it’s nice that other people believe in what we’ve been doing and have put us in a position to continue to compete. But ultimately right now, it’s about us surviving and advancing, finding ways to score goals.” Both Walker and Cameron agreed that the experience from going deep into last year’s tournament has been a benefit to the team. “It just adds a level of comfort to knowing how long the season can go,” Walker said. “A lot of players at this point in the season are tired emotionally, they’re tired physically. I think this group is just thrilled to still be playing and still be together and the energy at training has been really high. “They have nothing to lose at this point, it’s not like we’re trying to defend being the Big Ten champions, defend going to the (national semifinals), just come out and play. And so they’ve really taken the pressure off of them and they’re really just showing up and enjoying their time together and trying to advance.” The winner of OSU and Milwaukee will face the winner of Duke and Georgia at 1 p.m. Sunday at Koskinen Stadium. read more

A headon collision from a firstperson perspective

first_imgGovernment campaigns to cut road accidents always try to shock people into driving more carefully and pay better attention to the road. Sometimes they even do something crazy like place a 3D image of a little girl in the street to slow down drivers.Well, I think they are doing it wrong. Most people only pay attention to such advertising on TV once. What you need to do is show off accidents from a perspective not possible with real actors, like the above CG piece by Vimeo poster “uiralamour”. I’d certainly watch this every time it came on TV just for the sheer quality of the work on display.The two-minute piece was created for a graduation project in Film and Video. It uses 3D Studio Max, Vray, Rayfire, Zbrush, Nuke, and AE. All of which add up to a very realistic portrayal of someone travelling headfirst through their own car windscreen after a collision.Remember, focus on the road when driving, and adjust your iPod volume before setting off on your journey.Read more at CGTalk, via Jalopniklast_img read more

ThirtyFour Percent of Content Apps Downloaded in Last 30 Days Were Paid

first_imgAs for app discovery, the Apple App Store is identified by 88 percent of tablet users as a way to find new apps that are download-worthy. These apps are reportedly found through browsing/searching, or because they were featured in the Store. 55 percent of users find new apps through reviews and magazines in newspapers, and 24 percent discover apps by a link in another app. As publishers spend more time and money on developing apps to deliver their digital content, audience demographics detailing app interaction are beginning to show how these efforts are panning out. According to a recent study from Gfk MRI, app users who install fewer apps are more likely to utilize the downloads, as 95 percent of users that install 1-9 apps report regular usage of apps. On the other end of the spectrum, only 16 percent of users who download 20 or more apps are likely to engage with them regularly; Gfk MRI also reports that 37 percent users with 10 or more apps downloaded engage with those apps on a regular basis. App advertisements through radio broadcast appears to be the weakest promotion strategy, as Gfk MRI reports only 7 percent of tablet users find new apps through these types of ads.For this online survey, Gfk MRI polled 3,000 adult consumers who own tablets and e-readers.center_img Most likely to inspire dismay among publishers is that 66 percent of apps downloaded in the last 30 days were free; 34 percent were paid.

Iran warns US against seizing tanker

first_imgMap locating the last known position of Iranian oil tanker Adrian Darya, formerly Grace 1, which was seized off Gibraltar on July 4 and left on 18 August. Photo: AFPTehran said Monday it has warned its arch-foe Washington against attempting to seize an Iranian tanker that has set sail from waters off Gibraltar after being impounded for six weeks.Iran had been locked in a high-seas standoff with US ally Britain since Royal Marines seized the tanker off the coast of the British overseas territory Gibraltar on July 4 on suspicion it was shipping oil to Syria in breach of EU sanctions.Little more than two weeks later, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps impounded the British-flagged Stena Impero tanker in strategic Gulf waters in what Britain called a tit-for-tat move.A court in Gibraltar ordered the release of the Grace 1 on Thursday.That was in spite of a last-minute US request to detain the ship on allegations of involvement in supporting illicit shipments to Syria by the Guards, listed as a terrorist group by Washington.Gibraltar’s government rejected the request, saying it could not seek a court order to detain the supertanker because US sanctions against Iran were not applicable in the European Union.The tanker, bearing its new name the Adrian Darya and flying the Iranian flag, departed on Sunday evening for the Greek port of Kalamata, according to the monitoring website Marine Traffic.But the final destination of the supertanker and its 2.1 million barrels of oil remains unclear, with authorities in Greece yet to confirm that it is expected to dock there.As it finally sailed eastward on Monday, Iran said it had warned the United States through the Swiss embassy in Tehran, which represents US interests, against trying to seize it again.”Iran has given necessary warnings to American officials through its official channels… not to make such a mistake because it would have grave consequences,” said foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi.- Bullying and unilateralism -Speaking to reporters at a news conference, he dismissed the notion that there was a link between the seizure of the Iranian tanker off Gibraltar and the British-flagged tanker in the Gulf.”There is no connection whatsoever between these two vessels,” said Mousavi.”There have been two or three maritime violations made by that ship,” he said, referring to the British-flagged Stena Impero held off the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas.”The court is looking into it. We hope the (investigation) is completed as soon as possible and the verdict is issued.”The Iranian spokesman said the Gibraltar court order for the release of the tanker was a blow to US “unilateralism”.”The Americans have not been very successful with their unilateral sanctions that have no legal basis.”They should come to their senses that bullying and unilateralism cannot get anywhere in the world today.”Mousavi urged other countries not to accept sanctions the United States has imposed on Iran “because they’re not legitimate and have no legal basis”.Tensions between Iran and its arch-foe the United States have been rising since President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from a landmark nuclear deal in May 2018 and began imposing sanctions against the Islamic republic as part of a “maximum pressure” campaign.Iran has responded by suspending some of its commitments under the nuclear deal.The situation has threatened to spiral out of control in the past few weeks with ships attacked, drones downed and oil tankers seized.At the height of the crisis, Trump called off air strikes against Iran at the last minute in June after its forces shot down a US drone.In its decision ordering the release of the tanker, Gibraltar said it had received written assurances from Iran that the ship would not be headed for countries “subject to European Union sanctions”.Iran denied it had made any promises about the ship’s destination to secure the release.last_img read more

The Last of Us has a gamebreaking save bug heres what to

first_imgNaughty Dog’s next opus, The Last of Us, is not only surprisingly not an Uncharted sequel, but is also much, much darker in tone. Long before the game released, it was being heralded as one of this generation’s best games. This is not only strange because the game hadn’t released, but also because nothing that good traditionally releases only a few months before the next new console generation. Regardless, TLOU releases today, and you can end this generation on a bang, rather than the traditional whimper of worthwhile releases drying up. Unfortunately, there is reportedly a potentially game-breaking issue with the game’s save system.Reports from users who aren’t stuck at work and are able to play the game have claimed that the game’s autosave feature randomly ceases to function. This means your progress won’t save, and you likely won’t even notice until you try and load.Thankfully, the issue is avoidable, though it is somewhat tedious. If you press start and invoke the menu, you’ll see one of two messages. If you see “less than X minutes ago,” everything is working properly. If you see “autosaving, please wait,” that means the autosave function has stopped working. So if you notice this message, you’ll have to exit the game and reload from your last save. User reports have also claimed that sometimes when you try to exit the game in order to fix this bug, the game will freeze, forcing you to restart the console.You can manually save the game through the menu, so since you’ll be hitting start to periodically check on the health of the autosave function, you might as well create a separate save file or two just in case. Other users have claimed that sometimes the game doesn’t save even if the autosave function seems working. A possible fix for this issue is to load your save file from the “Load Save” option instead of the “Continue” option, and you’ll be able to load the proper save that seemingly wasn’t previously recorded.Naughty Dog hasn’t yet commented on the issue, but if the user reports are true, then the developer will most likely be working very hard to put out a fix as soon as possible. In the meantime, don’t forget to press start and check on the health of the autosave function from time to time.last_img read more

The Best Sartorial Swerves in Star Wars

first_imgStay on target Between epic lightsaber duels and thrilling interstellar dogfights, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the fact that Star Wars is one of the most stylish film franchises of all time. The series is chock full of solid looks, from killer costuming to enviable hair and makeup. With much of the Solo: A Star Wars Story discourse rightfully focusing on, uh, Lando’s cape collection, we found the sartorial side of Star Wars on our mind. Each movie, while full of great looks, has a clear standout swerve. Some of these are so quintessentially Star Wars that they’d never work outside of the franchise, but others are so lowkey that you may find yourself applying them to your wardrobe or grooming routine before you know it. THE PHANTOM MENACE Amidala’s Queen Getup: As swaggy as Star Wars can be, much of the costuming is rooted in minimalism, heavily aiming for utility over style. That goes out the window with Queen Amidala, and rightfully so. A queen shouldn’t be stomping around in a droopy beige aesthetic. From the regal dress to the stylized makeup to the hairdos that made Leia’s most ostentatious look tame, Amidala’s royal visage is unforgettable.ATTACK OF THE CLONES Obi-Wan’s hair/goatee: A Jedi’s time as a padawan is largely dictated by struggle, by challenge, and by learning how to navigate the least-enviable of situations. We can’t help but wonder if having to sport the dumbest haircut imaginable is part of that process. Luckily, Obi-Wan gets the glow-up of the millennium in between Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. Homeboy goes from a buzz cut with a rat tail to luscious locks and a killer beard to frame it all. The look is further refined in Revenge of the Sith but has less of a shock factor to it because by then we already know that Obi-Wan is hot now.REVENGE OF THE SITH Goth Anakin: Anakin is angsty as hell from the very start, but it’s not until Revenge of the Sith that he starts to dress like it. And man, he makes it work. Bringing out the dark, leather-heavy getup does wonders for the previously style-free Chosen One, and it’s a look nearly good enough to turn us to his side. If only he hadn’t, you know, murdered all of those children in cold blood…A NEW HOPE Leia’s Hairdo: There are a number of iconic looks in the franchise’s first installment which makes picking a single perfect swerve difficult. At the end of the day though, we’ve gotta give it to Leia’s iconic double-bun look. There’s no hairstyle more quintessentially Star Wars than this one. It’s often imitated but never duplicated. Heck, it even gets homaged in other hairstyles throughout the franchise. Leia takes a look that, in theory, shouldn’t work and instead makes it iconic. Truly a swerve for the ages.EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Lando’s Cape: Yes, Donald Glover’s are stellar, but we’ve gotta give it to the OG here. Lando’s flowing silken cape is all things considered, maybe the single dopest piece of costuming in the franchise’s history. Lando makes sure he wears the cape without it wearing him, a task utterly gargantuan in retrospect. If you’re feeling bold and want to give this look a shot, hit up ThinkGeek for their take on Lando’s Solo: A Star Wars Story cape.RETURN OF THE JEDI Black on Black: Luke’s grand entrance in Jedi sees him don an all-black ensemble that heavily implies a new moral ambiguity. Even setting aside the textual context though, it’s the best look in the film. We’ve never seen Luke in a good outfit until this moment, and when he shows up in fitted black threads it still makes our jaws drop. You can’t go wrong with black on black if you wanna look good and radiate power/moral ambiguity (and really, don’t we all?).THE FORCE AWAKENS Poe/Finn’s Jacket: Rare is the iconic piece of Star Wars costuming that is worn in stellar fashion by not one but two characters (the weird bit in Empire where Lando wears Han’s clothes while piloting the Falcon doesn’t exactly fall under the “stellar fashion” category). The Force Awakens jacket is the exception. Originally belonging to X-Wing hotshot Poe Dameron, it’s picked up by Finn in the wake of Poe’s apparent death – and he wears it so well that when Poe turns up alive he just lets Finn keep it. It’s the perfect Star Wars take on a brown leather jacket, with just enough embellishing to make it feel like it belongs in the world of the franchise. It’s another one that you can rock in real life if you so desire.ROGUE ONE Krennic’s Uniform: In a grimy world rendered filthy by perpetual war, Orson Krennic’s crisp white threads stand out as legendary. He wears them with a sort of disdain for anybody who isn’t dressed for the occasion he’s setting, fully aware of how crisp and clean his appearance is. The getup bleeds arrogance and class all at once, an easy highlight of the franchise’s sartorial side.THE LAST JEDIKylo Ren’s Mignola Body: Ben Swolo, y’all. His mask is iconic, his black robes peak Star Wars/Hot Topic fusion, but at the end of the day Kylo Ren has never looked better than the time he shows up to Force-Skype with his new friend Rey half-dressed revealing a chiseled, thick physique that looks like it’s ripped from a Mike Mignola drawing. Never has a Star Wars movie made us thirst for a villain like this.SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY The Fur Coats: Listen, yes, Lando’s capes are great in this one too. But we’ve already covered how slick that look is in Empire. We can only write so many words about capes, y’all. So instead, we’ve gotta give props to the fur coat ensemble sported by multiple cast members throughout the film (including Lando). These thick fur coats are about as cool as can be, so cool that we don’t even feel all that bad for the Banthas that probably had to die so that these jackets could live. They look like they were ripped from Andre 3000’s wardrobe for an Outkast video. Solo is full of stylish moments (Han’s suede jacket is pretty rad, for instance) but these coats easily clinch the win. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
