The Matrix 4 star Jessica Henwick says the film will ‘change the industry’

Twenty years after the pioneering ‘bullet time’ action scenes of The Matrix changed the visual language of blockbuster cinema forever, 2021’s The Matrix 4 looks set to transform the medium once again.

English actor Jessica Henwick says director Lana Wachowski is using innovative camera techniques on the fourth Matrix film, that promise to push the filmmaking boundaries once again.

Talking to ComicBook.com, Henwick revealed: “Lana is doing some really interesting things on a technical level in the same way that you know, she created a style back then.

“I think she’s going to change the industry again with this film. There’s some camera rigs that I’ve never seen before that we’re using. That’s probably all I can say for that.”

Fort Bend County early voting delays due to technical glitches

Some voters waited as long as seven hours to cast their ballots because the machines were programmed with the wrong start date.

FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas — The lines are long for early voting at every polling location in Fort Bend County early Tuesday, but it’s not just because of the increased turnout.

County officials are working to fix a technical glitch that prevented the polls from opening at their scheduled time of 8 a.m. 

County leaders said the machines didn’t have today’s date programmed so they wouldn’t work when the polls opened.

“They were not programmed to start this morning. And that had to be reprogrammed,” Fort Bend County District Attorney Brian Middleton said. 

He said they are investigating whether it was intentional, but said it could be because they’re using “state-of-the-art machines” for only the second time.

The delays came on the first day of early voting.

Nashoba Valley Technical High School Is Mostly Back

WESTFORD MA — Some students at Nashoba Valley Technical High School are going to class outside, but no one is assigned to the football field as some earlier reports indicated, according to the school.

“Over 95 percent of our student population is participating in our hybrid model which includes in-person classes. We have just under 5 precent of our students that have opted for fully remote instruction due to a variety of health and personal reasons,” said Superintendent Denise Pigeon.

Chairs and desks are spaced out outside the school for some classes, weather permitting, she said.

“We do not have classes assigned to the football field,” said Pigeon. “We have outdoor classroom setups available for use by teachers at their discretion so they can take their classes outside if they so choose for breaks or for instruction if it works with the lesson they are teaching.”

During the the first

Georgia Voters Reporting Lines Stretching up to 10 Hours and Technical Glitches

The first day of early voting opened in Georgia on Monday for the 2020 general election and despite some technical issues and long lines that had voters waiting for up to 10 hours, Georgians still came out in flocks to the polls to cast their vote and to make sure their voices are heard.

Viola Hardy got in line at 6:20 a.m., and at 11:15 a.m. still hadn’t voted yet, but she appeared determined. “We’re voting like our lives depend on it,”  Hardy told a reporter at 11 Alive, the NBC affiliation station in Atlanta. “I think people are just really ready to vote, and it doesn’t matter how long it takes — we will stand in line to vote.”

The Atlanta metro area was one of the busiest locations, according to NPR. The Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, the home of the NBA’s Hawks, is also the state’s largest voting

Tyra Banks gets called out by ‘DWTS’ viewers after explaining last week’s production flub again

The theme was “80’s night” on Monday’s Dancing With the Stars, but before the dancers traveled back three decades, host Tyra Banks took the audience back to last week. Last Monday, there was some confusion about which two couples were up for elimination after Tyra called the wrong names.

During last Monday’s live show, Banks claimed that there was an error in the control and later said, “I was reading my cards, but my cards were wrong.” She also took to Twitter immediately after the show to reiterate that the blame lays with production.

“We wanted to clear something up that happened last week while we were announcing the results,” Banks said at the top of Monday’s show. “What you did not see

On the daily timeframe, XAUUSD: D1 breached up the downtrend resistance line. A number of technical analysis indicators have formed signals for further growth. We do not rule out a bullish move if XAUUSD rises above its last high: 1935. This level can be used as an entry point. We can place a stop loss below the Parabolic signal and 2 last lower fractals: 1845. After opening a pending order, we move the stop loss following the Bollinger and Parabolic signals to the next fractal minimum. Thus, we change the potential profit/loss ratio in our favor.

Technical problems hit early voting in Georgia

The chance to cast ballots on Georgia’s first day of in-person early voting Monday had thousands of people waiting for hours to make their voices heard.

Eager voters endured waits of six hours or more in Cobb County, which was once solidly Republican but has voted for Democrats in recent elections, and joined lines that wrapped around buildings in solidly Democratic DeKalb County. They also turned out in big numbers in north Georgia’s Floyd County, where support for President Donald Trump is strong.

With record turnout expected for this year’s presidential election and fears about exposure to the coronavirus, election officials and advocacy groups have been encouraging people to vote early, either in person or by absentee ballot.

Many answered the call on Monday, showing up in numbers that overwhelmed some locations.

Cobb County Elections and Registration Director Janine Eveler said the county had prepared as much as much as

Florida DOH: COVID-19 data reporting delay caused by technical issue, not private lab

Two days after the state cited a data dump from a private lab as the cause for the delay in reporting new COVID-19 numbers, the Florida Department of Health said the delay was actually caused by a technical issue.

On Saturday, the state said its daily coronavirus report would be delayed until Sunday because of an overnight submission of about 400,000 previously-reported test results from Helix Laboratory, a private lab.

On Monday, the state said the lab’s submission was actually much lower than 400,000, and “an unforeseen technical issue resulted in the data’s repeated replication.”

“This was not the fault of Helix or the Department of Health,” the agency said in a statement. “We are working with technical experts to ensure this does not happen with subsequent data submissions.”

The health department said none of the replicated test results have been included in subsequent daily COVID-19 reports. The state said

Georgia marred by technical problems, long lines on first day of early voting

A technical issue with voting infrastructure in Fulton County, Ga., on Monday led to delays on the first day of early voting, with the technical issue eventually being resolved. 

The issue with pollbooks, used to check voters in, was a concern during early voting at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, according to The Associated Press. Fulton County encompasses much of the city. 

“While early voting is going well overall, we are experiencing technical issues at @StateFarmArena that are causing delays in voting at that location,” Fulton County tweeted Monday morning. “We apologize for the inconvenience. Technicians are onsite to help address the issue. Thank you for your patience.”

The county reported around an hour later that voting was again “underway.”

“Fulton County Elections quickly worked to resolve a small technical matter,” county officials tweeted. “The county appreciates the patience [of] all voters choosing to cast their ballot at

Technical Problems Emerge in Georgia as Early Voting Begins

(ATLANTA) — Long lines of people eager to cast ballots formed as early in-person voting began in Georgia on Monday, and problems soon developed in the state’s most populous county.

Election officials in Fulton County were aware of an issue with the electronic pollbooks used to check voters in at State Farm Arena, where the Atlanta Hawks NBA team plays, county spokeswoman Jessica Corbitt-Dominguez said. Technicians were on site working to resolve it, she said.

The line began moving when the arena opened for voting at 8 a.m. and some voters were able to cast their ballots, but things ground to a halt a short time later when the pollbooks stopped working with hundreds of people waiting. By mid-morning, the problem appeared to have been resolved and the lines had cleared at the arena, which is the largest early voting site in the state with 300 voting machines.
