Paddington 2 should not be this good. Blown away!

Actually blown away.. its easily one of the best "children movies" ever made.. easily in the top 10 of 2017.. just fantastic. I mean it touches upon relevant and modern themes so delicately. The animation is superb. The writing and performances both are wonderful. You seriously cannot hate this, its legit impossible. I think its a vast improvement to its predecessor aswell.Oh also, in some sequences the editing was effortless and just flowed so well together. Its well put and the ending is absolutely beautiful. Genuinely cant wait for 3, i hope it lives upto 2. via /r/movies

Shared Spaces Permits Extending to Next Summer

Shared Spaces Permits Extending to Next Summer
By Phillip Pierce

More than 1,800 individual operators and counting are making the Shared Spaces Program a successful part of San Francisco’s economic recovery. Permits originally set to expire at the end of December may now be extended through June 30 and new applications are welcome. Mayor Breed has called for this extension as well as for exploring ways to make the program permanent.

Shared Spaces allow merchants to use sidewalks, full or partial streets, and other nearby outdoor spaces like parks, parking lots and plazas for restaurant pick-up and other neighborhood retail activities allowed under San Francisco’s Public Health Orders. The program is a multiagency collaboration born out of the city’s Economic Recovery Task Force.

How to Renew Existing Permits:

The process for renewing permits to June 30, 2021  depends on the type of Shared Space. Merchants may use the following guide to understand how to renew a permit:

  • Sidewalk Permits – Automatically renewed before December 31, 2020.  No action is needed from the permittee unless:
    • The permittee wants to modify the existing permit. To do so, the permittee must submit a new application for a Sidewalk Permit on the Shared Spaces website.  
    • The permittee wants to discontinue or withdraw the existing permit. To do so, email with "Withdraw
      permit" in the subject line.
  • Curbside Lane Permits – On Monday, October 26 curbside lane permit holders are scheduled to receive a personalized email from the SFMTA to renew, extend or change the existing permit. The email contains a personalized link to a permit renewal form. This webform must be completed by November 15, to be guaranteed a permit renewal by December 31.
    • If the curbside lane zone being permitted extends in front of a neighboring property, written consent for the permittee to occupy that area through June 30, 2021 from the affected neighboring property owner(s) must be provided.
    • If the curbside lane zone has a fixed structure or deck, a signed form and photos must be provided as described in the Shared Spaces Design Guidelines.
  • Street Closure Permits – To extend the Street Closure permit beyond December 31, the permittee must submit a new application for Street Closure Permit on the Shared Spaces website.
  • Private Property Permits – Valid through the end of the State of Public Emergency. No action is needed from the permittee.
  • Port Property Permits – To renew, email requesting renewal.
  • Recreation and Parks Department Property Permits – Permittees will be contacted by the Recreation and Parks Department in the coming weeks about extending Outdoor Dining and Outdoor Fitness Permits. The availability of facilities for outdoor fitness classes may change due to the change in seasons or the reopening of facilities previously closed by the health order.
  • Just Add Music (JAM) Permits – If the JAM permit is associated with a Shared Space, the Shared Space permit must be renewed in order for the JAM permit to remain valid. JAM permits not associated with Shared Spaces do not need to be renewed at this time.

Small Business Impact Survey

During these difficult times, the city is working to help small businesses. If you are a business owner or operator, please take the short survey below to help evaluate the Shared Spaces Program. Please fill out a separate survey for each business that you operate.

William Cragh

William Cragh.
William Cragh (born c. 1262, died after 1307) was a medieval Welsh warrior and supporter of Rhys ap Maredudd in his rebellion against King Edward I of England. Captured in 1290, Cragh was tried and found guilty of having killed thirteen men. He was hanged just outside Swansea twice, as the gallows collapsed during his first hanging. Signs of life were noticed the next day, and in a few weeks he had made a full recovery; he lived for at least another eighteen years. The main primary source for Cragh's story is the record of the investigation into the canonisation of Thomas de Cantilupe, which is held in the Vatican Library. Cragh's resurrection was one of thirty-eight miracles presented to the papal commissioners who in 1307 were charged with examining the evidence for Cantilupe's saintliness. The hanged man himself gave evidence to the commission, after which nothing more is known of him.

Early life[edit]

Shetty was born on 5 November 1992 to actor Sunil Shetty and director Mana Shetty in Mumbai.[3] While her father hails from Tulu speaking Bunt community,[4][5] her mother was born to Punjabi Hindu mother and a Gujarati Muslim father.[6] She has a younger brother, Ahan Shetty.[7]

Shetty studied at the prestigious Cathedral and John Connon School and later shifted to the American School of Bombay.[8] While there, she participated in school plays alongside Shraddha Kapoor and Tiger Shroff.[9] At the age of 18, she relocated alone in New York City to enroll at the New York Film Academy as she wanted to act in films.


Shetty made her acting debut in 2015 with the Nikhil Advani-directed romantic action film Hero, a remake of co-producer Subhash Ghai's 1983 classic of the same name. Produced by Salman Khan and co-written by Advani and Umesh Bist, the film earned a total revenue of ₹34.82 crore (US$4.9 million).[10] She portrayed the role of Mumbai-based aspiring dancer Radha Mathur, who falls in love with her kidnapper Sooraj (Sooraj Pancholi), a gangster trying to extort her police chief father, IG Shrikant Mathur. For her portrayal of Radha, she received Filmfare award nomination for the Best Female Debut.[11] Bollywood Hungama, a leading website of India, wrote that ″Shetty needs some more time to improve her acting skills″.[12] After her debut, she became the brand ambassador for the Indian franchise of Maybelline New York[13] and featured in the Indian edition of high-profile magazine covers such as CosmopolitanVerveHarper's Bazaar and many more.[14][15][16]

After a brief period of 2 years, Shetty appeared in Anees Bazmee's romantic comedy Mubarakan opposite Anil KapoorArjun Kapoor and Ileana D'Cruz.

In the film, she played the role of a simple Punjabi girl named Binkle Sandhu who falls in love with Charan (Arjun Kapoor) but her wedding is instead fixed with Charan's twin brother Karan, who wants to marry his love interest Sweety (D'Cruz). Shetty received positive to mixed reviews for her performance in the film, though the film received mixed to negative reviews. She then appeared in a song, "Tere Naal Nachna", in 2018, composed, written and sung by Badshah, and featuring newbie singer Sunanda Sharma, for the film Nawabzaade, produced by Remo D'souza and directed by choreographer Jayesh Pradhan, starring Raghav JuyalDharmesh Yelande and Punit Pathak.
