49 Photos 3 TV and Movies Then there’s powerful attorney Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss), who sometimes hires Jess for her services, for better or worse.The Jessica Jones TV series is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Jones herself has featured in Marvel’s The Defenders crossover series, also on Netflix, featuring Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil.Melissa Rosenberg will run the final season as executive producer, and co-heads of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory will be working alongside her.Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) returns with more drinking and crime fighting. Netflix Who’s making it?The director of the season 1 pilot episode, S.J. Clarkson, was recently announced as the first female director of an upcoming Star Trek movie. Season 2 of Jessica Jones was helmed by an all-female roster of talented directors, including Jennifer Lynch and Uta Briesewitz (The Wire).”I knew I wanted to have at least half our directors be women and people of color, and as we began to book them, it became clear there were so many of them. I wasn’t discovering anyone. These were all seasoned pros, and it just kind of grew into this. But I’m glad this really made an impact of normalizing it,” Rosenberg, the executive producer, told Variety. Though season 3 directors have yet to be announced, chances are we’ll be seeing more female directors take charge of future episodes.What we know about the plotIn season 1, we’re introduced to Jones sometime after her experience with Kilgrave, a villain who uses mind control and who raped her as well as forced her against her will to murder. In season 2, we see Jones coming to terms with her childhood trauma and her real mother.Now in season 3, when Jones crosses paths with a highly intelligent psychopath named Gregory Salinger, she and Walker must repair their fractured friendship to join forces and take him down. But when a tragic loss reveals Jones’ and Walker’s conflicting ideas of what it means to be a hero, it sets them on a collision course that’ll change them both forever.Rosenberg told the Los Angeles Times that season 3 aspires “to do something different again. We’ve delved a lot into her past — maybe this time, we’ll focus on … it’s wide open. We can really do anything.”Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) returns to Netflix on June 14. Netflix Some theories (based on the comics)In the comics, Jones went to high school with Peter Parker (Spider-Man), and her father worked for Tony Stark (Iron Man). So while fans already got a glimpse of Jones’ horrific childhood car accident in season 2, the series has yet to connect her past with other Marvel characters from the Avengers. Also in the original comics, Jones and Cage are married with a daughter named Danielle (who’s surprisingly named after their fellow Defender, the very annoying Danny Rand aka Iron Fist). It’d be great to see Jones and Cage reconnect in season 3, since Cage is nowhere to be found in season 2. This piece was originally published on May 27, 2018, and is updated as news rolls in. Warning: Possible spoilers ahead for Marvel’s Jessica Jones.Some superheroes would rather blend in and drink at bars in peace. But superpowered, sarcastic New York private detective Jessica Jones never seems to get her wish to be left alone. She’s suffered through childhood trauma, sexual assault and murder. And in season 3, debuting on Netflix June 14, we’ll see Jones go head-to-head with a new adversary.This season will also serve as the final batch of Marvel live-action episodes coming to Netflix, following the streaming service canceling both Jessica Jones and The Punisher. Marvel Entertainment and Netflix released the new trailer for season 3 of Jessica Jones on June 6, revealing more footage of Jones drinking, fighting and having a few choice words with the new villain, named Gregory Salinger (Jeremy Bobb). Show Us Yours: Marvel fandom pictures from our readers Share your voice Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Dark final season hits Netflix June 14 What it’s like to live as Jessica Jones for a day Why Jessica Jones is the #MeToo Marvel superhero we need The couple’s nanny in the comics is none other than Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl), who also happens to be a character in the upcoming TV series Marvel’s New Warriors. Fingers crossed Marvel sees fit to add the unusual superhero nanny if Cage and Jones do have a child in season three of Jessica Jones.Now that Walker has superpowers thanks to an incident at the end of season 2, fans might finally get to see her as her superhero alter-ego Hellcat from the original Marvel comics.This opens up an interesting season 3 plot idea of regular humans trying to find ways to get superpowers like Walker did. Plus, Walker’s egomaniacal quest to be the best superhero ever might really rub Jones the wrong way, especially since Walker accused her of being a coward for not using her powers more to save people in trouble.Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) trains hard to be a hero on Marvel’s Jessica Jones season 3. Netflix “Walker is a character that has a lot of ambition and a lot of appetite,” Taylor told Den of Geek. “I think in some way she’s quite coveted of the powers that Jones has. Walker really wants to matter. She wants to do more. She wants to be more than what she is.”And then there’s the not-so-adoring public when it comes to superheroes. In season 2, we already see both the police force, Jones’ building manager and perfect strangers treat Jones like a dangerous freak because she’s known to have superpowers. This powered-people discrimination from normal humans will probably be more of a plot point in season 3, especially now that superheroes have been outed after the very public actions of the Avengers.When will Jessica Jones season 3 come out?All 13 episodes of season 3 debut on Netflix on June 14, 2019.Meet the (possible) castKrysten Ritter as Jessica Jones Rachael Taylor as Trish WalkerEka Darville as Malcolm DucasseCarrie-Anne Moss as Jeri HogarthRebecca De Mornay as Walker’s mom and Jones’ adoptive mom Dorothy WalkerBenjamin Walker as ErikJeremy Bobb as Gregory Salinger Sarita ChoudhuryTiffany MackJessica Frances DukesAneesh Sheth More Jessica Jones Tags Comments In the new trailer, Salinger calls to tells her, “Jessica Jones, you’re a cheater. You were given every advantage. Allowed to make mistake after mistake. You can’t control yourself. You have no discipline, just brute force. I want you to die.”Marvel Entertainment and Netflix also posted on Twitter and Youtube a teaser trailer for season 3 on May 28, announcing the series release date of June 14. The trailer description said, “Sometimes not even ‘heroes’ can save themselves.” On May 23, star Krysten Ritter shared a short video on Instagram of herself as Jessica Jones drinking at a bar, and wrote in the caption that season 3 would be “coming soon.”Ritter plays the eponymous Jessica Jones, a hard-drinking private investigator with superhuman strength. She’s joined by best friend and adoptive sister Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor), who aspires to be a hero like Jones.
JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) $210 at Best Buy Rylo Tags Angela Lang/CNET I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

She also joined a welcome reception hosted by US president Donald Trump, while US secretary of state Mike Pompeo met her at her hotel suite in New York.Hasina also had bilateral meetings with world leaders and heads of international organisations, including Estonian president Kersti Kaljulaid, Dutch Queen Maxima and the OIC secretary general.During the tour, the prime minister received ‘International Achievement Award’ given by Inter Press Service, a global news agency for her dynamic and farsighted leadership in addressing the Rohingya crisis while Global Hope Coalition conferred upon her the ‘2018 Special Recognition for Outstanding Leadership Award’.Hasina also addressed a press conference and attended a reception accorded to her by the Bangladesh community in the United States.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam AlamgirTerming Rangamati gun attack a well-designed one, BNP on Tuesday said violence and criminalisation by miscreants is growing centring elections in the country for lack of democracy and atmosphere for credible polls, reports UNB.”Bangladesh has got affected with the disease of terrorism. BNP considers killing of any people in terror attacks is a hateful act. I think the attack on election officials at Baghaichhari is a well-planned one. I strongly condemn and protest the incident,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.In a statement, he also demanded the government identify the attackers and mete out exemplary punishment to them.At least seven people, including an assistant presiding officer, were killed and 13 others injured in a gun attack on a vehicle of a motorcade carrying election officials and law enforcers in Baghaichhari upazila on Monday evening.Fakhrul said ruling party men themselves are indulging in violence and killing for establishing their supremacy in the voter-less upazila elections.”The criminals in their localities got encouraged to grab power through the midnight ballot stuffing during the 11th parliamentary election,” he observed.The BNP leader also said the ruling party leaders are now in a competition of capturing local power through vengeful acts as they do not have any accountability to people.He also alleged that people are getting killed in different dangerous incidents as ruling party men has taken violence and hatred as their political programme.Fakhrul claimed that people did not respond to Monday’s second phase of ‘unilateral’ upazila election as they do not believe that any credible election can be held under the current government.”The current government has moved away from people’s confidence. A one-party rule has been the only means for the government to cling to power,” he said.The BNP leader alleged that the government is using the state machinery to eliminate the opposition. “The government wants to stay in power by creating panic among people and threatening them.”He prayed for salvation of the departed souls of the gun attack victims and wished early recovery of those injured.
The scientists, Ymkje Huismans from the FOM-Institute AMOLF in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and an international research team have published their study in a recent issue of Science Express.“What we have experimentally demonstrated is that it is possible to make holograms by taking an electron out of a molecule and, using a laser field, redirect the electron toward the molecule,” coauthor Marc Vrakking, of the FOM-Institute AMOLF and the Max Born Institute in Berlin, told PhysOrg.com.In their experiments, the scientists beamed an intense infrared laser light at an atom or molecule, which resulted in the atom or molecule becoming ionized and releasing an electron. The laser field causes the liberated electron to oscillate away from and toward the ion. Sometimes, an electron and ion collide, releasing a very short burst of radiation. Because the electron motion is fully coherent, meaning it always has the same phase, the scientists realized that they could apply holographic techniques to record information about the ion and electron. The key to holographic electron imaging is to observe the interference between a reference wave (which is emitted by the electron and doesn’t interact with the ion) and a signal wave (which scatters off the ion and encodes its structure). When the reference wave and signal wave interfere on a detector, the encoded information about the electron and ion is stored and can be viewed in the future. As the scientists explained, the result is a hologram of an atom produced by its own electrons.The researchers also developed theoretical models to simulate their measurements, confirming that the hologram had stored spatial and temporal information about the electrons and ions. By using the holographic structures to develop a new kind of ultra-fast photoelectron spectroscopy, researchers could be able to directly measure electron and ion movements on the attosecond timescale. This ability would be useful for understanding chemical reactions at the most basic level, particularly in molecules that cannot be easily studied by other methods. Scientists track electrons in molecules (PhysOrg.com) — While holography is often associated with artistic 3D images, it can also be used for many other purposes. In a new study, scientists have created holograms of atoms using laser-driven electron motion, which could lead to a new type of ultra-fast photoelectron spectroscopy. In the future, this type of holography could enable scientists to study the structures of molecules in a more direct way than before. This velocity map image shows the velocity distribution of ionized electrons, which are used to create a hologram of a Xenon atom. Image credit: Y. Huismans, et al. ©2010 Science.
