Cleaner VW: Mitsubishi risk of becoming bankrupt – Oil Russia

«Oil of Russia», 27.04.16, Moscow, 09:11
Mitsubishi 25 consecutive years underestimated data on fuel consumption by many of its models, including the Pajero so popular in Russia. Following the “diesel” Volkswagen scandal, this scandal has already received the name of “fuel”

President of Tetsuro Aikawa honestly admits. The scale of problems is so great that there is the possibility of bankruptcy Mitsubishi. Note: “fuel scandal” – is the only tip of the iceberg. The company has long and unsuccessfully searching for a partner in Europe: it was the first Daimler, then Peugeot-Citroen, but cooperation has not brought the desired results. Mitsubishi is already several years is in crisis mode: during this time the company lost 50% of market capitalization

Data on fuel consumption for the international market as much underestimated since 1991. At home, the company for a long time tried to be honest, but. and Japan began to carry out the manipulation of test results in 2002.

in the Land of the rising sun rumors that not everything is in order, appeared a little earlier in the camp of the automaker than the rest of the world: the stock Mitsubishi falling rapidly for 5 consecutive days. The market capitalization of the “Three Diamonds” (and that is how it is translated from Japanese) fell significantly below $ 4 billion. Company President Tetsuro Aikawa said that the top management has not yet discussed the issue of compensation to customers.

> According to preliminary data, the fuel efficiency of cars Mitsubishi overstated by an average of 10%. On Wednesday, the company reported for the IV quarter, is expected to increase net profit by 32%. However, experts are already talking about the fact that rates will begin to decline sharply after the scandal of fuel.

The Government of Japan has already forms a special committee, which will monitor all the national automobile industry, so no one no longer tempted to overstate the useful indicators and understate harmful. The Ministry of Transport also announced that Mitsubishi has provided enough detailed report on its breaches. Companies are required to publish detailed information before 11 May.

In Russia Mitsubishi have production in Kaluga, and its fate in the event of possible bankruptcy, was talking about the president of the company is unclear. It is impossible to completely eliminate and withdrawal from Russia, as did Opel and budget line Chevrolet.

Sister Prince: The singer has not had time to leave a will – Russian Newspaper

Recently, Beyonce introduced her fans a new visual album Lemonade. Record only saw the light, and has done a lot of noise. The fact is that the dramatic texts of some new songs prompted admirers 34-year-old pop diva on sad thoughts: it seemed to them that the artist alludes to the serious problems in the relationship with her husband, 45-year-old rapper Jay-Z. In particular, the song Sorry singer mentions a certain “Becky” -razluchnitsu. Fans immediately rushed to search for the alleged mistress producer and musician. Who fell under the sight of angry fans

Something that so many fans have been waiting for Beyonce: artist released a new album. However, not all fans of pop queen of her new CD called positive emotions. The reason is that the new songs celebrities were very mixed. In his texts, the singer touches deeply intimate topics, including – adultery. That this issue is devoted to the beauty song called Sorry

At the end of the songs sound the words:. “I looked at the clock, he should be at home / Today I regret that put a ring / He wants me only when I’m not around / It is better to call Becky with a beautiful hair. ” Hearing these lines, the fans came to the conclusion that Beyonce hints at infidelity of her husband Jay-Z. But who, then, is the same Becky who seduced the rapper and producer?

Members of the fan club pop diva set out to calculate the insidious razluchnitsa and started a real investigation. Already there were the first version. Someone thinks that Beyonce sang a 42-year-old Rachel Roy, which has already been suspected in connection with the musician. But most of the followers of the actress believes that the lover Jay-Z – British singer Rita Ora, who in 2008 signed a contract with record label producer Roc Nation.

25-year-old blonde itself added fuel to the fire, laid out in the application Snapchat short video, which appeared in a transparent bra with print in the form of lemon and a gold chain with a pendant «J» on the neck. Internet users have decided that drawing on underwear Rita – is an allegory to the name of the new album, Beyonce, Lemonade, and the decoration on the celebrity neck – a reference to the first letter in the name of Jay-Z

Is this true -. Remains only guess. Maybe soon she Ora decides to comment on the situation, or Beyonce overtake her and simply explain the mysterious meaning of his dramatic songs.


New album Beyonce «Lemonade» – BBC

Beyonce knows how to surprise. Three years ago, she quite suddenly released a new untitled album, which she asked to consider the visual, because each song a separate expensive video was filmed with him. All the work – from writing to shooting – was conducted in absolute secrecy, which today seems almost unattainable. The new album, entitled «Lemonade» came out in a similar way – the truth, some time ago Beyoncé yet for seed produced video for the song «Formation»

However, the move was not so much. announcement as injection suspense: no data that follow this single, the singer did not let

The premiere of the film «Lemonade» took place on HBO on Saturday night and was one of the main prime. season – along with a new season of “Game of thrones.” Actually, what was shown on TV, this is, obviously, what I wanted to say Beyonce to the fullest form – audiovariant album produces a slightly different impression. Despite the formal absence of plot, the video version «Lemonade» produces whole quite an impression, it is not a collection of clips and full benefit Beyoncé dedicated to the place of women in general and women in particular, dark-skinned in the modern world. The film is divided into several chapters – “Intuition”, “Denial”, “Apathy”, “emptiness” and “Resurrection”. A bunch of musical numbers in addition to the visual interludes are the verses of the young Kenyan poet Varsan Shire dedicated to love and change

In fact, at first it seems that the final film will be in the best case, an application for divorce, and at worst -. Beating singer wife – rap mogul Jay-Z. Beyonce takes quite a dashing start – hit the car with a baseball bat ( «Hold Up»), screaming voice, Jack White, throws a wedding ring in the camera ( «Do not Hurt Yourself») and says that it for all it is absolutely not ashamed ( «Sorry “). In the background are dancing fervent flames. However, the story pretty quickly makes almost imperceptible turn and talk about private adultery is supplemented with quotations known African-American human rights activist Malcolm X (echo Ferguson here all sounds rather hollow), memories of childhood, reconciliation shots Beyonce and Jay-Z and many others. At the same time what is happening on the screen is crystal clear.

Singer talks about quite simple things like: the strength and independence not imply aggression, pride and arrogance – not the same thing, emancipation does not mean rejection of female nature – and even vice versa

at first the audience admired the abundance of African-American women in the frame -. from Serena Williams to grandmother Jay-Z, but on the album besides Beyonce sing in mostly men, and there is no contradiction. Closer to the final singer almost by Shakespeare, it comes to the fact that the strength of a woman that is considered to be a weakness – the ability to forgive, to accept. When closer to the final character appears in a scene with her husband, there is no concession

Here, by the way, it would be necessary to stop and take a step back to understand that. If it was limited only by the content, «Lemonade» was I would be no more than just amusing feminist gesture. However, it is really an outstanding pop album – various, inventive and hit. In contrast to his eternal rival Rihanna Beyoncé does not need to prove anything, and show, «Lemonade» – is a completely mature work, a performer who knows their (considerable, to put it mildly) the resources and know how to use them properly

<. span class="idea"> actually, it is the artistic consistency makes this work truly outstanding.

As usual with great pop albums, «Lemonade» team of authors includes a couple dozen items, but for once -What are the main forever really is the singer, whose name is rendered on the cover. She thought of all this, it is – the man who made that record intact sociocultural (sorry) statement. And in this situation it is not so important whether the Jay-Z Beyonce changed (although, apparently, yes). Singer turned personal tragedy is not simply an act of art, a universal sentence. After all, if life throws you lemons, then anyone (regardless of gender, age, location and color) would be nice to learn how to make lemonade.

The series “on tour” starts on NTV channel – BBC

Vladimir (Maxim Averin) and Michael (Alexey Vorobyov) Sabaneeva live in Tambov and keep a small restaurant “for the”. The new mayor of the city decides to take their property and sends thugs – to deal with the owners in the style of the 90s. Brothers win in the shootout, but now they have to run – and they run through the Belarusian-Lithuanian border with forged documents to the name Sabonis to get to Sweden and be summarized in the distant and sunny Brazil

In Lithuania it. We have to stay. The head of police of a small town (Arnis Litsitis) decides to test newly minted immigrants who do not know a word in Lithuanian, takes their passports, and the brothers themselves lodges in Nijole (Xenia Kutepov), alone raising a son. Sabaneeva-Sabonis gradually understand the psychology of the locals – Michael regularly merges into history with the girls (as the selection – beautiful women), and Vladimir least regularly pulls it out of another scrape, and at the same time helps the hostess. However, Tambov Mayor has not calmed down – and here Lithuanian lads are requested to look after Russian and Brazil sent a man who knows languages ​​(Alexander Bashirov)

NTV channel begins criminal. series “on tour”, created by the producer Sergei Zhigunov center -. the story of the interaction of Russian mobsters and peaceful Balts

However, the genre of the film is best described as a comedy – a fighter it can only be attributed gloomy eyeballs throughout history, led to the end of the two brothers to become inhospitable homeland. However, Tambov, seems to have appeared in the series only to the main characters could periodically trumps known proverb about Gdańsk wolf and mate, and writers as the starting point of the route can select any region of Russia and, in principle, not too tell a lie .

With the final (or intermediate, if we consider unattainable Brazil) point of the route Sabaneeva all brothers much more interesting.

Despite the fact that small town, which suddenly find themselves stuck Vova and Misha, can be localized precisely enough (one of the workers ‘touring’ names – “Palanga”), its real location is still hidden behind the fog of fiction and seems to extend to the entire Baltic. Moreover, the Baltic states are not real, and created the most common stereotypes that are commonly attributed to its inhabitants, not particularly distinguished Lithuanians from Latvians and Latvian -. Of Estonian

The result was quite a nice mixture actually the biblical paradise on earth, which can be briefly described as a country not frightened of the Baltic states.

There’s no one at no one is attacking, even gangsters are trying to comply with traffic regulations, forest roam wild animals, girl beautiful, people are happy and trusting, but the most terrible crime is stealing two bottles of vodka from the local shop, to investigate who throw the best forces in the face of law enforcement police Romanauskasa (Sergey Peregoudov). He honestly spends the night in ambush, wisely ignoring clear evidence of guilt and the outcome is pushed around a visiting guest performers. And living in the neighborhood with the guests from Tambov Thomas (Sergey Umanov), the morning after a joint Misha drinking alcohol, having heard about the theft, is to give up by putting the empty bottle in a sealed plastic bag – all police convenience sake

True. in this kingdom of Denmark (to which, incidentally, is only 500 km by sea) is not all right – and Romanauskas not so simple, and the lads are found who are always ready to shoot (well, in the air) and rob a bank, and the wise-old the police chief may still have its say, because hardly his role be confined to the role of an apartment broker – not the scale

the cast of the series are generally pretty strong -. it busy including foreigners honored Soviet cinema Ivars Kalnins and Lembit Ulfsak.

In principle, the “touring” can be seen as a movie inspired by the TV series “Fizruk”. Averin character no less brutal than the hero Dmitry Nagiyev, and played a former contestant of “Eurovision-2011″ Misha profitable emphasizes the strengths of his on-screen brother and completely took over the carefree fun contented life. And they have a place to turn – the main characters, who are in the complex relationship with the law given to the looting is not a free-standing school, and the whole country – even a little bit invented. The school and the gym teacher, however, is there too.

That is Hemsfort hunter remained, but it was not enough.

Over the weekend, from 22 to 24 April, “Snow White and the Huntsman 2″ earned in the US box office and Canada’s only $ 20 1 million.

this is almost three times less than it was at the start of the first film ($ 56.2 million), and this was enough revenue only in second place. Critics smashed “Snow White and the Huntsman 2 ‘to the nines – in the picture a 17%” fresh “on Rotten Tomatoes, and not the highest approval from the audience. However, worldwide the film has earned $ 100.2 million, so that its 115 millionth budget he must pay back – though it is not clear with what result. In Russia, “Snow White and the Huntsman 2″ was released a week ago, and the first place in the ranking was not able to break through, giving Disney’s “Jungle Book”; by the end of the second weekend the film earned in the Russian hire about 200 million rubles.

It is interesting that in the United States, “Snow White and the Huntsman 2″ lost film “The Jungle Book”, which remained leader of box office with $ 60.8 million.

Previous Jon Favreau, “The jungle book” was a surprise hit at all. Rather, the company expected the success of Disney remake of the classic animated film in 1967, the last full-length cartoon films made by the founder of the Mouse House. Reymek made by all the rules of modern cinema – with the abundant use of the latest technology and with a minimum of live actors (they are there only two – actually Mowgli and his human father), as well as inviting well-known voices to voice Baloo, Bagheera, Kaa and other invented Kipling inhabitants jungle. For two weeks rental charges of the new global “Jungle Book” have exceeded half a billion dollars ($ 528,400,000), he has already recouped its 175 millionth budget – and stop there not intend to. Particularly successful film rolls in China (about $ 100 million); in Russia it charges close to a billion rubles, however, the second weekend in cinemas in Russia, he conceded, “crew” Nikolai Lebedev – but, apparently, only because of the small number of available screens. The low age rating, which American analysts attributed the good rolling performance, “The Jungle Book”, was supposed to help the film in Russia.

In fact, we can already predict that neither the “Jungle Book” or “Snow White and the hunter 2 “will not hand over their positions at least until May 6, when will hire another edition of the cinematic universe of Marvel -« Captain America: Conquest. ” With other films, reached the Top 5 on the weekend, the situation is more uncertain, but they have a chance to stay in the top five for a week.

Now in third place takes comedy “Barber 3″ with Ice Cube.

The continuation of a series of films about the beginning of the zero Negro area of ​​Chicago has earned $ 10.8 million and bringing its total fees up to $ 36 million. The fourth was the cartoon “Zveropolis “which is in the top 5 for two months, during this time earned $ 907 million, of which $ 6.6 million in the US last weekend.

a fifth place went to Melissa McCarthy comedy” Big Boss”. History of clever businesswoman who served in prison and lost his business, gathered in movie theaters this weekend only $ 6 million, but its total revenue ($ 59 million) is enough to justify the 29 millionth budget and confirm the reputation of McCarthy as the income-comedian .
