San Francisco: Ahead of the upcoming 50th anniversary of mankind’s first successful trip to the moon, Google has recreated the Apollo 11 rocket’s command module with Augmented Reality (AR). On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 was launched into space and on July 20, it landed the first two humans on the Moon — Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module Eagle’s pilot Buzz Aldrin. To celebrate the milestone, when users would Google search Apollo 11 on an AR-enabled device, they would see an AR option in the Knowledge Panel and tapping on it would let users explore a 3D recreation of the command module, Engadget reported on Wednesday.

The search-engine giant has teamed up with the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum for this project. As part of Google’s initiative, users would get to explore 20 new stories about lesser-known aspects of the mission and the people who contributed to it, the report added. More features such as moon- and space-related tours and quizzes on Google Earth have also been lined up from July 15. In a different report, Engadget said that Denmark-based toy company Lego is also marking the historic day with NASA Apollo 11 lunar lander set that would cost $100. Designed with inputs from NASA itself, the 1,087-piece kit would come with a pair of astronaut figures representing Armstrong and Aldrin. read more
REGINA – An organization that bills itself as the voice of rural Saskatchewan is calling for consideration, patience and understanding following the acquittal of a farmer in the shooting death of a young Indigenous man.The Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities says in a statement that it believes people in the province are better united than divided and that it takes community to build a healthy, strong rural Saskatchewan.A jury on Friday acquitted Gerald Stanley of second-degree murder in the death of Colten Boushie.The 22-year-old member of the Red Pheasant First Nation died on Stanley’s farm near Biggar in August 2016.The association says it will continue to cultivate relationships with the Federation of Sovereign Indian Nations and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner to find areas of common ground to advance all communities.SARM says it has a rural Indigenous working group to help guide it.“SARM recognizes that all municipalities need to work together,” president Ray Orb said in the statement. “We are committed to working with our membership in promoting co-operation with our First Nation neighbours.” read more

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says he’s going to Washington next week to not only urge U.S. lawmakers approve the Keystone XL pipeline, but also to highlight green initiatives taking place in his province.“We need to tell that story,” Wall said Wednesday after meeting in Edmonton with Alberta Premier Alison Redford.He said Saskatchewan, like the U.S., is heavily reliant on coal-generated electricity, but said his province has invested $1.4 billion in a clean-coal project near Estevan.“That’s about $1,400 per man, woman and child,” said Wall. “I’m not sure of another jurisdiction in North America that can make that claim.”Both premiers discussed strategy in what has become a full court press to impress on lawmakers in the United States the importance of the Keystone and Canada’s pledge to do what it can to combat climate change.“It’s important for us is to be co-ordinated,” said Redford.“The first thing we want to do is speak to what Canada’s record has been.”Wall’s trip to the U.S. capital comes on the heels of Redford’s trip to Washington last weekend.Redford met with 19 state governors to sell the message that the TransCanada (TSX:TRP) Keystone line is good for both economies and will deliver a larger supply of reliable oil south of the border.Redford has also emphasized that Alberta is doing its part to reduce the climate-changing greenhouse gases that result from carbon intensive projects like the oilsands.She has stressed that Alberta is the only North American jurisdiction to tax heavy emitters. Alberta is also investing millions of dollars in clean-energy projects and beefing up environmental monitoring of the oilsands.Critics, however, have said the pace of development is outstripping these measures.Redford reiterated her pitch in a guest column Tuesday in the nationally circulated USA Today newspaper.Wall has been busy as well.Last month, he and 10 U.S. state governors wrote a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama urging he “swiftly” approve the $7-billion pipeline in an environmentally sustainable way to lift North American economy and create jobs.Wall said Saskatchewan has the potential for oilsands development and has already got investors waiting in the wings.Alberta’s representative in Washington, David Manning, is also working the Keystone file.Gary Doer, Canada’s U.S. ambassador, said Tuesday he believes most Americans want the line, but that the issue is being sidetracked by, among other factors, celebrity protesters.It’s getting down to crunch time on a decision by Obama on whether to approve the 1,800-km pipeline.It would ship oilsands crude from Alberta down through Saskatchewan and six U.S. states to Texas refineries on the Gulf Coast.The route is considered vital to Alberta’s bottom line. The profit margin on the oilsands product has been dropping due to a pipeline bottleneck in the U.S. and a glut of oil coming from North Dakota.Alberta is expecting to get half of the $13 billion it had hoped from oil and gas this year, ballooning this year’s deficit to a projected $4 billion.Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have made it clear in speeches this month that they want action on climate change, referring to the boost in global temperatures being blamed for more droughts, superstorms, and rising seas.On top of that, Keystone has become the line in the sand for protesters who say it’s time to reverse the trend of carbon-intensive operations.Less than two weeks ago, 20,000 protesters rallied at the Washington Monument within sight of the White House urging Obama to reject Keystone. Days before that celebrity activists like actress Daryl Hannah and environment lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. were arrested after they tied themselves to a White House gate,Labour groups and the petroleum industry are pushing hard for Obama to OK the project.Kerry’s department is currently reviewing the environmental impacts of a revised route for Keystone.Obama shelved the project last year amid concerns the line could affect a major aquifer in Nebraska. Nebraska’s governor has since signed off on a revised route.Once the report is done, Kerry and Obama are expected to make their final decisions, as early as this spring. read more

Miami Marlins0.222+1.78 Toronto Blue Jays1.492+0.51 Cincinnati Reds4.175+0.83 Houston Astros1.390-1.39 WORLD SERIES WINS Chicago White Sox2.753+0.25 Kansas City Royals1.622+0.38 Oakland Athletics8.099+0.91 Pittsburgh Pirates5.275-0.27 Detroit Tigers4.864-0.86 As expected, a team’s probability of winning the World Series increases as its roster gets stronger. But the effect of having a good team is completely overwhelmed by the number of opponents a squad must face to get to the World Series. Consider the worst and best teams to have ever made the playoffs by Elo’s reckoning: the 2005 San Diego Padres (with a rating of 1489) and the 1906 Chicago Cubs2Go figure! (1635). In a two-team playoff system — which is what the 1906 Cubs faced — that Padres team would be expected to win the World Series only 23 percent of the time, while the Cubs had a commanding 72 percent chance of taking home the title. In the current 10-team playoff system, the Padres’ odds would shift down to 4 percent — but the 1906 Cubs would drop much more dramatically, all the way down to 28 percent.3Without taking into account the specifics of the playoff bracket, including teams’ starting rotations, my simplified model would have given this year’s Cubs and Indians a 13 percent and 8 percent chance of winning the World Series, respectively, before the playoffs began. That’s why the modern playoffs are a crapshoot: No matter how good a team is, by the time it gets to the postseason, its chance at the championship isn’t radically better than that of the worst team in the playoffs.As a corollary, any ballclub that appears in the postseason often enough — no matter how mediocre its teams are — should eventually be guaranteed a World Series win. But for more than a century’s worth of Cubs squads, no level of greatness has been able to get them over the hump. I determined just how unlucky each franchise has been over its postseason history by taking its Elo rating and the size of the playoff field and then calculating how likely the team was to win the Series each year using the process I outlined above. I added up those probabilities from all the years in which a World Series was held and compared them with how many titles the teams actually won, and I found that the Cubs are the unluckiest team of the last 113 years. Cleveland Indians2.752-0.75 Washington Nationals0.350-0.35 Tampa Bay Rays0.450-0.45 Milwaukee Brewers0.620-0.62 Philadelphia Phillies3.042-1.04 Baltimore Orioles3.633-0.63 Seattle Mariners0.510-0.51 No matter what happens at the end of this year’s World Series, a curse is getting broken. On Tuesday, the Chicago Cubs will open up proceedings against the Cleveland Indians, and by Nov. 2, one of them will have claimed the title. For two teams with the some of the worst championship luck in all of baseball, this series will offer long-awaited catharsis for one — and even more misery for the other.No team is ever a shoo-in to win a championship. But all else being equal, great teams should claim the title more often than merely good ones. To confirm that hypothesis, I looked at every team’s end-of-season Elo rating (a measure of team strength) and whether that team won the World Series, in every postseason era — from when two pennant-winning teams went straight from the regular season to the World Series, to the modern 10-team field that battles through multiple playoff rounds.1I used a logistic regression, with end-of-season Elo rating and log-transformed playoff field size as predictor variables, on all playoff teams going back to the first World Series in 1903. Win totals include 2016, except in the cases of the Cubs and Indians.Source: ESPN San Diego Padres0.590-0.59 Atlanta Braves4.933-1.93 New York Mets1.682+0.32 Los Angeles Dodgers8.166-2.16 Just based on the pretty-good teams the Cubs have featured in their 18 playoff appearances, my model expected them to win six or seven championships. Instead, they’ve only won two since 1903, and both were more than 100 years ago. (Notably, this year’s Cubs triumphed in the NLCS over the second-most-unlucky team, the Los Angeles Dodgers.) The Cubs have had more years to be unlucky than most teams, since they’ve existed for a long time. But even on a per-playoff-season basis, the Cubs have been the least fortunate franchise in baseball.But you already knew the Cubs were unlucky. The misfortunes of the Cleveland Indians, on the other hand, had attracted far less ink before this season, despite their status as the eighth-most-unlucky franchise in the same time frame. The Indians don’t have quite the cursed reputation of the Cubs, and that’s fair. But when you consider that they’ve also been the seventh-most-unlucky team in terms of converting regular-season wins into playoff appearances since 1998, it’s easier to believe that Cleveland is hexed. (By contrast, the Cubs have been the second-luckiest team at getting into the playoffs in that same period.)One of these franchises will see its championship drought end soon. If the baseball gods have any mercy, they’ll reward the Cubs for assembling what will probably go down as one of the best squads of all time. Yet, as a Cubs fan myself, I’ve been trained to believe that seasons can only end in heartbreak. But whether or not it ends this year, statistically speaking, the curse can’t persist forever. Probably.

The 4kg bird, worth around £5,000, disappeared from Hemingstone, Suffolk on December 9.With no homely instinct Stan is not expected to return home by himself but should still be in the nearby area.Mr Ford, who has seven birds of prey including another female golden eagle, added: “It’s an old wives tale snatching babies from prams.”He won’t come back like a homing pigeon would but he might find his way back by accident but he wouldn’t have travelled too far because he’s fat and lazy at the moment because he’s been malting.”Mr Ford is trying to get an accurate location and then will call his companion of two years and Stan will land on his glove.”I’ve had a lot of calls of people who have sighted him but what I need is a current location.”They’re not pets but you get attached.”Eagles rarely attack dogs or cats, but there are examples of large birds attempting to snatch dogs.In 2012 Suzanne Dodd, 43, told how an eagle tried to take her Jack Russell by grabbing the dog’s head in its claws. A five-year-old Golden Eagle An expert from Falconry UK also said: “What we don’t want to do is scaremonger but it is an imprinted bird, or raised by humans, and so will come down and expect to be fed.”It will start to get hungry and it will come down to take rabbits which it could eat.”Potentially it would be able to take any pet up to the size of a fox.”Five-year-old Stan, who was imported from the Czech Republic two years ago has never left Kris’ garden alone before.Stan normally sits tied to a heavy wooden block, and is “contented” if he has been fed and is not scared. Dog-owners in the area are being warned that the golden eagle could snatch animals that are smaller than foxes, including chihuahuas, pugs and other toy dog breeds.An RSPB spokesman said the animals are even capable to eating baby deer. He said: “In the wild, they can go for anything from rabbits and hares to very young deer.”But it must be stressed that this particular animal isn’t wild, so will behave differently.” Pet owners have been warned that a giant golden eagle, capable of eating animals as large as baby deer, is on the loose.Falconry expert Kris Ford, 65, fears his prized bird of prey Stan could kill animals the size of foxes and rabbits after it broke free from its perch.The bird, which has a six-foot wing span, poses a risk to the public as its six-foot nylon leash is still flailing behind it.It is thought to be nesting around two miles from Kris’ home in rural Suffolk, but despite his best efforts to bring it home, the eagle is still free.Father-of-three Kris, who is married to Dee, said: “It could take rabbits and foxes. Eagles just grab what they can.”The ring that he was tied to failed and [its] poor quality allowed him to escape.”So he’s still got a long leash attached to him. He might be feeling a little hungry by now so hopefully he’ll come back to me later when he has eaten.” Golden Eagle Aquila chrysaetos in flight Scotland captive Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Guyana Goldfields Inc reports that the phase one mill expansion which was designed to increase the hard rock throughput rate from 5,600 t to 6,600 t/d has been completed on-time and slightly under budget with initial benefits to recovery already being observed within current operations.The expansion consisted of debottlenecking the back end of the circuit and included the addition of three leach tanks, a pre-leach thickener, carbon management systems and the expansion of the elution circuit. Due to additional retention time within the leaching circuit, the phase one mill expansion is already demonstrating increased recoveries by approximately 1% to an estimated average recovery of 92.5%. The original timeline for completion was by the end of the first quarter of 2018 for a capital cost of $21 million.The second phase of the mill expansion is expected to allow the processing of 7,500 t/d of hard rock ore and a further increase in recovery of 1% to 2% with the utilization of a pre-crushing circuit and ball mill from a previously purchased 1,000 t/d modular processing plant. Results from a series of bulk test work on expanding the pre-crushing capacity have been highly encouraging demonstrating an approximate 3% improvement in grind, as well as, an approximate 2% overall improvement in gold recovery. This expansion is expected to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter of 2018 at a capital cost of $6 million as the majority of this capital has already been expended. The company has awarded JDS Mining with the engineering and procurement for the second phase of the mill expansion. read more
Tyrone enjoy first win over Dublin in six years to knock champions out of hunt for league final Mattie Donnelly and Cathal McShane did the damage with a haul of 1-7 between them. By Kevin O’Brien Short URL 32 Comments 39,372 Views Image: Oisin Keniry/INPHO Image: Oisin Keniry/INPHO Mar 16th 2019, 9:25 PM Subscribe Saturday 16 Mar 2019, 9:25 PM Share1110 Tweet Email1 Tyrone 1-14Dublin 1-11Kevin O’Brien reports from Croke ParkTHIS WIN HAS been a long time coming for Mickey Harte.The Tyrone boss enjoyed his second ever victory against Jim Gavin, with his latest one arriving six years to the day after the first.On their first outing at Jones’ Road since the All-Ireland final defeat, Tyrone put away an off-colour Dublin by three points in a confident display. They consigned the Dubs to their third league defeat of the campaign – the most league losses they’ve ever suffered in Gavin’s tenure.It means the reigning league and All-Ireland champions are out of the race to reach the Division 1 final – the first year since he’s taken charge that they’ve failed to make the decider.Kerry, Mayo, Galway and Tyrone are left in the running to meet in the final.This was a performance that Tyrone will file away for later in the summer. They played out the final 20 minutes with a man less after Niall Sludden’s red card, making the win even more impressive.Their two-man full-forward line of Mattie Donnelly and man-of-the-match Cathal McShane were in electric form, contributing 1-7 between them.Crucially, Tyrone delivered early ball into their inside duo and it reaped dividends. Brian Fenton is tackled by Brian Kennedy. Source: Oisin Keniry/INPHORichie Donnelly was excellent at midfield too, and his strong form means Tyrone can afford to leave his brother Mattie further forward. Dublin’s most dangerous attacker in the opening half was Cormac Costello and rattled in his second goal of the campaign just four minutes into the game.Worryingly for Dublin, the in-form Whitehall Colmcilles forward limped off shortly before the break with a knee injury. Dublin had already lost John Small by that stage, while Tyrone’s Tiernan McCann only last until 12 minutes when a hamstring problem forced him off. Tyrone’s energy and appetite for work troubled Dublin in the first period. They blew two early goal chances before McShane eventually capitalised on a quality ball inside by Mattie Donnelly.It was a move that displayed McShane’s brain and brawn. He initially outmuscled David Byrne and his low finish past Stephen Cluxton was a picture of calmness.Tyrone led by 1-7 to 1-5 at the interval and the sides went tit-for-tat in the third quarter.The Red Hand’s inside pair of Donnelly and McShane continued to do damage with nearly ever delivery that went into them. Tyrone’s use of the advanced mark was excellent as Peter Harte and McShane both scored from the experimental rule. Kilkenny slotted over Dublin’s third point from play of the half in the 62nd minute on a night where their attack failed to hit its usual heights.A late Mannion free was all they could muster in the form of a comeback as Tyrone defended in numbers and sealed the victory.Scorers for Tyrone: Cathal McShane 1-4 (0-2m, 0-1f), Mattie Donnelly and Peter Harte (0-1m, 0-2f) 0-3 each, Richard Donnelly and Niall Morgan (0-2f) 0-2 each.Scorers for Dublin: Paul Mannion 0-4 (0-2f, 0-1m), Cormac Costello 1-0, Ciaran Kilkenny and Dean Rock (0-2f) 0-2 each, Brian Fenton and Con O’Callaghan 0-1 each.Tyrone 1.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The menu might have had a hint of Italian but the kitchen was overrun by Greek chefs at the Methodist Ladies College’s hospitality trade training Terrace restaurant. Over 60 people enjoyed a menu that featured Italian delights such as scallop saltimbocca and a ricotta and marscapone stuffed chicken brast with pumpkin and mustard fruit ravioli main.Vasilios Dounodis, executive chef at Mama Baba, was the guest chef as students of Methodist Ladies College looked on and received technical skills and learnt about fresh produce while serving hungry diners in their restaurant. As part of the hospitality program the college offers, they have an onsite training restaurant for the students and guest chefs come in and compliment what we do, they keep us in touch with current industry trends. Vicky Manos, Hospitality Team Leader, Methodist Ladies’ College, told Neos Kosmos that this is a good opportunity for students to learn about the trade they would like to get into. And, with the help of guests chefs – the college has hosted Shane Delia from St Katherine’s and the legendary Guy Grossi from Grossi Fiorentino – the students are able to make solid contacts in the industry.“It helps the students to get a job in the industry if they know the chefs and have worked with them before,” said Manos. “It also gives them very specific technical skills keeps them in touch with what’s currently happening in restaurants.” read more
How ‘River City Girls’ Makes a Retro Franchise Fresh and NewNo Joke, ‘Yakuza 7’ Goes Full Turn-Based JRPG Stay on target Over the past few years Sega has steadily gotten American players to embrace a life of Japanese crime in the Yakuza games. Though the series has been around since the late PS2 days, recent PS4 and PC releases like Yakuza 6, Yakuza 0, and the remakes of the original games Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2 have finally helped the franchise break through in the West. Even I kind of know who Kiryu and Majima are now.Yakuza’s gritty yet campy Eastern urban underbelly is so popular and richly detailed that it can now support stories centering around other characters and crime archetypes. And that’s just what Sega is doing with Judgment, an upcoming Yakuza spin-off that puts you (sort of) on the right side of the law.When they first tried to make Yakuza a thing in America Sega went all out with a star-studded cast including Mark Hamill, Eliza Dushku, and Michael Madsen of all people. Those actors didn’t stick around but Judgment continues the legacy of cinematic celebrity, at least in its own context.While I have no idea who he is, I was told that actor Takuya Kimura, the game’s star, is in fact a Justin Timberlake-esque big deal in Japan. And based on the way the game lovingly shoots his detailed character model, not unlike Terry Crews in Crackdown 3, I believe the hype. Gaijin like me though will also appreciate the bevy of new localization options, from natural subtitles to a full-on new English dub (with actors like Yuri Lowenthal and SungWon “ProZD” Cho) including convincingly resynced lip moments.Judgment is based on the same tech and assets of recent Yakuza games. It takes place in a more developed modern version of the same Kamurocho map. But by stepping in the shoes of a disgraced former lawyer turned private detective, you explore that world in variety of new ways. To put it another (more reductive) way, if Yakuza is Japanese Grand Theft Auto then Judgment is Japanese L.A. Noire. Even its opening title sequence recalls Japanese legal thriller dramas with some serious Phoenix Wright vibes.Like Yakuza games, Judgment’s gameplay feels like a series of vignettes approximating the ever changing day in the life of a hard-boiled dude like your main character. As I walked down the dense, compact city streets I could just get into fights whenever with local punks looking to get their skulls slammed into walls. The game turns into a kind of Virtua Fighter brawler switching between crowd control Swan style and one-on-one Tiger style techniques.But I’m not a brutal gangster. I’m a private dick looking for redemption. And as such I spent most of the time working on cases requiring a sharp eye and keen logic using various new investigation mechanics. Did something fishy go down at a local nightclub? Interview the nearby locals. Take a look around with your drone. Notice the placement of a security camera while reviewing footage. In the first chapter at least it’s not the most rigorous detective work. When looking for a suspect in a crowd there were only like three viable choices and the real challenge came from quietly tailing him before an on-rails chase. But it’s something.The reason the gameplay feels so segmented though is because I suspect it’s mostly there to link up the story sections people really come to this game for. Judgment puts even more of a focus on the interwoven plots and colorful cast of characters that make up this world, from sassy secretaries to dudes who spend too much time at internet cafes. When talking to folks you get rewarded for asking questions in a sensible order, encouraging active listening. But if Judgment’s story doesn’t grab you, you’re probably out of luck.Or just say “screw it” and do side activities like going on dates, befriending shop owners, and playing arcade classics like Space Harrier and the rare Motor Raid in the club like Sega’s own Animal Crossing.Judgment launches on PlayStation 4 this summer. Who even needs a Shenmue 3? For more on Yakuza watch us play Yakuza 6 and learn more about the Fist of the North Star game that might as well be Yakuza. read more

Kyrie Irving went to Duke, and generally comes off as thoughtful and well spoken. He’s also convinced the Earth is flat (sigh). That’s right!! Irving doesn’t accept of one of the most commonly held, absolute truths in modern science – that the Earth is round.Irving is apparently a believer in what has been described as the ‘Flat Earth Theory,’ which holds that the Earth is a flat disc. A 2012 Huffington Post article described exactly what Irving, Tila Tequila, and other ‘Flat-Earthers’ believe:Earth is a disc with the Arctic Circle in the center and Antarctica, a 150-foot-tall wall of ice, around the rim. NASA employees, they say, guard this ice wall to prevent people from climbing over and falling off the disc.Earth’s day and night cycle is explained by positing that the sun and moon are spheres measuring 32 miles that move in circles 3,000 miles above the plane of the Earth. (Stars, they say, move in a plane 3,100 miles up.) Like spotlights, these celestial spheres illuminate different portions of the planet in a 24-hour cycle. Flat-earthers believe there must also be an invisible “antimoon” that obscures the moon during lunar eclipses.As idiotic as the theory sounds, and despite clear scientific evidence to the contrary, Irving doubled down in an interview with ESPN’s Aresh Markazi when asked about his Earth theory, and how he can square this circle. “I’ve seen a lot of things that my education system said was real that turned out to be completely fake.”Seriously? Kyrie sounds like your crazy Uncle (Drew) at Thanksgiving. He still hasn’t weighed in on the hotly debated topic of the moon potentially being made out of cheese.Here are his full comments:Kyrie Irving was trending on Twitter today because he believes the Earth is flat. I asked him about it. pic.twitter.com/ODe9aP9qmK— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) February 18, 2017 Advertisement read more

(HBO via AP) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Andrew Dalton, The Associated Press Posted Apr 8, 2019 8:41 am PDT Fire, ice and puberty: how ‘Thrones’ characters have grown LOS ANGELES — Living in Westeros can really change a person. Those who survived the first seven seasons of “Game of Thrones” have seen their parents, children and even pets stabbed, disemboweled and beheaded. They’ve been burned and frozen. They’ve lost essential body parts. Some have been through death and back, others suffered the horrors of puberty. Occasionally, they’ve been allowed some triumph. Here’s a look at the twisted journeys of some of the characters who’ve managed to make it from 2011’s season one to Sunday’s premiere of season eight of the HBO series.___ARYA STARKFrom little princess to ruthless assassin, few have had a more transforming trip through the seven seasons of “Game of Thrones” than Arya. Played by Maisie Williams, Arya was a girl of about 11 forced to do needlepoint and other acceptably girlish things while dreaming of swords, war and adventure. Be careful what you wish for in Westeros. She saw her father beheaded in season one, had her brother and mother slaughtered at the Red Wedding in season three and was kidnapped and led through endless, grueling wandering. All of it left her hardened and hungry for vengeance, with a kill list of names she recites like a prayer before bedtime. In season five she went through dignity-draining assassin training that required her to take beatings, go blind for months and beg in the streets for subsistence. Eventually, she began living her dream of offing her family’s enemies — baking two of them in a pie — and is getting such a taste for blood that as season eight starts it’s hard to know whether she’ll ever stop.___SANSA STARKWhile Arya embraced death and struggle, her big sister Sansa — played by Sophie Turner, who has become a star in the “X-Men” film franchise — only wanted the life of tea and tiaras she had as a young teen when the show began. Her initial innocence and optimism and subsequent persistence through humiliations and violations have made her the show’s great emotional survivor. She was delighted to be betrothed to the king’s son Prince Joffrey in season one, only to learn he was a vile monster. Her beloved pet dire wolf Lady was executed. She was forced into marriages with Tyrion Lannister then Ramsay Bolton, the most sadistic soul on a show full of them. Ramsay raped her on her wedding night in a season five scene that was too much even for many devoted viewers. As season eight begins she’s finally in a position of power, in charge of her reclaimed family home of Winterfell. She has matured darker but still with her moral sense intact, and unlike many of the show’s characters, has actually gained wisdom through her struggle.___JON SNOW“You know nothing, Jon Snow,” was a frequent refrain that became a social media meme early in the series. It’s spoken by the Wildling woman Ygritte, who takes Jon’s virginity and leaves him with some worldly wisdom. (Kit Harington, who plays Snow, and Rose Leslie, who plays Ygritte, later married in real life.) Jon Snow knows a lot more now, and is about to learn a world-shaking truth about his origins as season eight begins. A bastard brought into the noble northern Stark family and raised by a regal woman who refused to love him, he was sent to serve at the great wall that guards the north, along with delinquents and other throwaway children. He would quickly rise to become their commander, and reached out to rival clans to fight the plague of the White Walkers, a growing horde of icy undead. Killed in a mutiny at the end of season five, he was later brought back to life by a priestess. The lords of the region join to declare him the King in the North, but he leaves to seek allies in the growing White Walker war. He found such a partner, and lover, and more in Daenerys Targaryen, who brings her dragons and armies to the fight.___DAENERYS TARGARYENViewers can tell how far Daenerys has come by the sheer number of names and titles she’s amassed: Daenerys Stormborn, Khaleesi, Mhysa, Mother of Dragons, The Unburnt, The Queen Across the Sea, The Princess That Was Promised, and just plain Dany to friends and fans. When the show began she was treated as a piece of currency, a princess-in-exile married off to a barbarian by her calculating brother. Now she is either worshipped, feared or revered by nearly every soul in her world. She brought dragons back from extinction, conquered kingdoms, freed thousands of slaves, and is on the verge of restoring her family’s dynasty over the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, but first must fight alongside Jon Snow, and explore their possibly shared destiny. Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys, has had some real-life baptisms-by-fire since the show began, suffering two aneurysms and undergoing two brain surgeries.____BRAN STARKBran began the show as a boy barely big enough to use a bow and arrow and is now a seer known as the Three-eyed Crow, who contains the wisdom of millennia, and a secret about Jon Snow that will redefine his family and possibly all of Westeros. His appearance underwent a change nearly as dramatic. Actor Isaac Hempstead Wright, now 19, was 11 when he shot the first season, and had a pubescent growth spurt that rendered him virtually unrecognizable within a few seasons.___JAIME LANNISTERLeave it to “Game of Thrones,” to take an incestuous, amoral, love-to-loathe-him villain and try to make him genuinely sympathetic. He begins as a legendary fighter known as the “Kingslayer,” royal guard of his twin sister Queen Cersei and the secret father of her three children. During a stint as a prisoner he has his right hand cut off, and becomes a warrior unable to use a sword. His humanity, and even hints of kindness, have slowly emerged in the years since, and as season eight begins he has defied his sister to join their enemy Jon Snow in the fight against the White Walkers.___CERSEI LANNISTERCersei was queen when season one began, and is queen as season eight begins. She’s barely left the castle in King’s Landing during the show’s run, but for a naked walk of shame through the streets that became one of the show’s most memorable — and most memed — moments. Most of her trials have been internal. All three of her children have died. Her famous long-blond locks are now gone in favour of a cropped cut that evokes maturity. She has refused to change her view of the world however, staying steadfast in the ruthlessness that for most of the series has kept the throne in her control. As season eight starts she’s refused to commit her troops to the fight in the north, hoping all her potential rivals will destroy themselves while she waits it out.___TYRION LANNISTERTyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage, has in many ways been the face of the show since Sean Bean’s Ned Stark lost his face — along with the rest of head, in season one. At first he was a wisecracking alcoholic who spent most of his time in brothels. Now, he’s a wisecracking alcoholic who advises Daenerys Targaryen, would-be queen of the realm. Through constant humiliations and rejections, Tyrion remained loyal to a family that despised him until he couldn’t bear it anymore, killing his father, fleeing into exile and finding new life with Daenerys, the biggest threat to the clan he’s renounced.___THEON GREYJOYThe show’s other wisecracking prostitute-frequenting rogue when the show began, he has been brutally humiliated and humbled since. After a murderous failed attempt to conquer Winterfell, where he was raised among the Starks, Theon is held prisoner by Ramsay Bolton, who cuts off his private parts, peels off his fingernails, knocks out his teeth and dubs him “Reek,” turning him into a sad shadow of a human. He’s slowly regained himself in recent seasons and is a survivor who has regained his will to fight.___SAMWELL TARLYSam was a soft, sad, overweight reject from a family of warriors in season one, and he remains all of those things as season eight begins. Sent to the wall to be forged into a real medieval man, he instead finds his calling through his pure heart and studious mind, becoming an essential adviser who helped Jon Snow’s rise and has found ancient knowledge to fend off the White Walkers.___Follow AP Entertainment Writer Andrew Dalton on Twitter: https://twitter.com/andyjamesdalton .Andrew Dalton, The Associated Press read more
