‘Joker’ Dominates International Box Office With $141 Million

  ‘Joker’ Dominates International Box Office With $141 Million Joaquin Phoenix showed plenty of worldwide drawing power as “Joker” dominated international moviegoing with $140.5 million from 22,552 screens in 73 markets for Warner Bros. Along with the North American results, the worldwide opening weekend totaled an impressive $234 million, outperforming expectations. Directed by Todd Phillips, “Joker” has been the subject of scrutiny in weeks leading up to its release over fears that the disturbing origin story of Batman’s infamous foe could inspire violence — a scenario had not materialized as of Sunday. “Joker” generated the biggest 2019 opening for a Warner Bros.

The Toronto-based singing group Choir!Choir!Choir! staged a performance Sunday at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying the decision was based on a desire to foster community rather than on politics alone.

With a barbed wire fence and border patrol dividing two groups of drop-in singers, one located on the beach at Border Field State Park in San Diego, Calif., and the other just metres away in the border town of Tijuana, Mexico, the popular choral group performed a rendition of With A Little Help From My Friends by The Beatles.

'I just need my legs back': Stolen wheelchair leaves Vancouverite homebound

  'I just need my legs back': Stolen wheelchair leaves Vancouverite homebound Romham Gallacher was getting set to leave their East Vancouver home on Saturday morning when it became apparent something was horribly wrong. The shed where Gallacher, who uses the pronouns they/them, keeps their motorized wheelchair had been broken into. The wheelchair was gone, along with its charger. "I panicked," Gallacher said over the phone from their home. "I honestly don't know what I'm what I'm going to do." Gallacher quickly created some flyers to share on social media, and filed a police report in hope of recuperating the $4,000 wheelchair as quickly as possible.

About 200 people took part on each side.

"We're just trying to create a moment that can be shared and that will bring people hope," said Daveed Goldman, co-founder of Choir!Choir!Choir!."How do we remain apolitical? We can't completely. But we try to sort of forget about that for a few minutes."

The location is arguably one of the most politically charged places in North America. Tens of thousands of migrants from across Central America are seeking asylum at the border while the U.S. administration is embroiled in a battle to thwart their entrance. It has led to stiffer immigration policies, including forced family separation.

"These people are no different than the rest of us," said Linnea Leidy, 20, who came to sing. She said she has family in Mexico. "They were born in a different place. And they want to be in a different place. This event ... can help defuse some of the myths around these families who live around here."

Connection through music, and a fence

A short walk from the singers is the famous Friendship Park, a bi-national space at the border where residents from both sides can meet their loved ones through a guarded fence. The spaces in the fence barely allow a pinky finger to fit through.

A border patrol officer explains to a family waiting to enter that only 10 people are allowed in at any time on the American side. It's heavily patrolled 24 hours a day.

"There are things that we can't solve by singing, obviously," said Molly Clark, who works at ArtPower at University of California San Diego, which helped organize the event. "But I hope that in the end, we just feel more connected to one another."

Elizabeth May accuses Justin Trudeau of stripping refugees of their human rights

  Elizabeth May accuses Justin Trudeau of stripping refugees of their human rights Trudeau said in the debate that May’s claim that new federal rules were denying refugees’ human rights was “absolutely false.” His government has also defended the new rule by saying no one will be removed from Canada without first receiving a pre-removal risk assessment to determine if they are in danger.“Canadians believe that we need to have a fair, and strong immigration system that applies to everyone and we are working to make sure that we protect human rights,” Trudeau said.“There’s no free pass to get through the border,” he said.

Adilman, who was directing singers on the Tijuana side, couldn't be seen through the fencing, but his voice could be heard on the San Diego side through loudspeakers set up near the stage.

"We stand with you," Adilman told the Tijuana crowd. "We just want you to know: you have a lot of friends who you haven't met yet."
