Oscars 2018: Start time, how to stream and more – CNET

Hollywood will gather in a few short weeks to fete itself. The 90th Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, March 4 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Who’s hosting? Jimmy Kimmel returns as host. Kimmel hosted last year, which ended in the most memorable fashion when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced “La La Land” as the Best Picture winner instead of “Moonlight.” Hopefully, the producers of this year’s show will send the presenters to the stage with the correct cards. Who are the nominees? Let’s go over…

After mass rape, turning disgrace into grace

The United Nations calls it “the most urgent refugee emergency in the world.” Since August, nearly 700,000 Muslims known as Rohingya have fled violence against them in Myanmar, a largely Buddhist nation. The sprawling camps of refugees in Bangladesh are indeed a catastrophe. Yet the crisis is becoming known for something else just as extraordinary: Aid workers are offering special services to Rohingya women because of the sexual violence committed against many of them. The services, provided in shelters only for female refugees, assist survivors of rape and other sexual…

In both cases all the committee Republicans voted for the nominees, and…

Mason Crane to make England Test debut in Ashes after Woakes injury

Mason Crane, the 20-year-old leg-spinner from Hampshire, will make his Test debut for England in Sydney on Thursday, while Mitchell Starc returns for Australia in place of Jackson Bird. Crane’s remarkably swift ascent has been widely predicted since the Melbourne Test. The surprise – and disappointment for England – comes from the fact that Crane will replace Chris Woakes, rather than the obvious candidates after Melbourne, Tom Curran or Moeen Ali. Woakes has a side strain, one of the worst injuries for a fast bowler, and was therefore unavailable for…

Mason Crane must be given the chance to get it wrong on Ashes debut | Jason Gillespie

If Mason Crane makes his England debut in Sydney this week then expectations should be tempered, while Joe Root, his captain, must send the young leg-spinner into the heat of an Ashes battle with an attacking mindset but a sympathetic field. The worst you can do with a wrist-spinner is to talk to them about the run-rate. Instead the message should be to toss the ball above the eye-line, spin it hard and forget the scoreboard. If necessary, stick a couple of sweepers out on the boundary for early protection…

Ancient Stone Weapons, Including One of a Kind Giant Handaxe, Could Tell Story of When Early Humans First Left Africa

Archaeologists in Saudi Arabia have discovered a massive cache of stone artifacts, some of them more than 1.7 million years old. They might reveal when different species of early hominins first migrated out of Africa, according to Live Science. The researchers are part of the DISPERSE project, which studies the diaspora of early humans across Africa and Asia. The artifacts, more than 1,000 of them, were found in a basin of porous rock bordered by volcanic lava flows, just a few miles from the coastline of the Red Sea, according to an…
