CBS All Access announced a new limited event series, The Stand, based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name.

The TV series will be offered on CBS’ digital subscription and live streaming service and will consist of 10 episodes. Josh Boone and Ben Cavell will be executive producing and writing the script, with Boone also directing.

The Stand takes place during an apocalyptic time period with the struggle of good vs. evil lingering heavily. The fate of the world is left up to Mother Abagail – a 108-year-old woman – and a group of other survivors. Randall Flagg, also known as the Dark Man, haunts them with his unimaginable powers.

“I’m excited and so very pleased that The Stand is going to have a new life on this exciting new platform,” King said in a statement. “The people involved are men and women who know exactly what they’re doing; the scripts are dynamite. The result bids to be something memorable and thrilling. I believe it will take viewers away to a world they hope will never happen.”

Michelle Yeoh Will Appear in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Film Adaptation

In honor of Taiwanese brand Shiatzy Chen’s 40th anniversary, friends and fans of the house took over the basement of the Palais de Tokyo, painted in vivid colors. In the front row was a mix of up-and-coming faces such as “Reign” and “Teen Wolf” actress Adelaide Kane or French actress Luna Besson, but also industry heavyweight Michelle Yeoh.
The opulent collection would fit right into Yeoh’s upcoming role as Eleanor Sung-Young in “Crazy Rich Asians,” directed by Jon M. Chu and adapted from Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel of the same name. She will also star a comedy director and respected action choreographer’s Yuen Woo-Ping.
Comedic value aside, the Asian action star is a firm supporter of women empowerment. “[Helping women being financially independent] helps families and nations to grow,” she said.

Adaptive Agents and Multi-agent Systems – Adaptation and Multi-agent Learning: No. 3


This book contains selected and revised papers of the European Symposium on Adaptive and Learning Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (ALAMAS), editions 2005, 2006 and 2007, held in Paris, Brussels and Maastricht. The goal of the ALAMAS symposia, and this associated book, is to increase awareness and interest in adaptation and learning for single agents and mul- agent systems, and encourage collaboration between machine learning experts, softwareengineeringexperts, mathematicians, biologistsandphysicists, andgive a representative overviewof current state of a?airs in this area. It is an inclusive forum where researchers can present recent work and discuss their newest ideas for a? rst time with their peers. Thesymposiaseriesfocusesonallaspectsofadaptiveandlearningagentsand multi-agent systems, with a particular emphasis on how to modify established learning techniques and/or create new learning paradigms to address the many challenges presented by complex real-world problems. These symposia were a great success and provided a forum for the pres- tation of new ideas and results bearing on the conception of adaptation and learning for single agents and multi-agent systems. Over these three editions we received 51 submissions, of which 17 were carefully selected, including one invited paper of this year’s invited speaker Simon Parsons. This is a very c- petitive acceptance rate of approximately 31%, which, together with two review cycles, has led to a high-quality LNAI volume. We hope that our readers will be inspired by the papers included in this volume.
