Organizers of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) will focus this year on female directors Roquan Smith Jersey , screenwriters and actresses, in response to criticism that such events are too male-dominated.

"Today's announcement cements that the future is female," the organizers said in a statement Tuesday, promising a women-heavy line-up for the 400,000 visitors of the 10-day movie fest, which begins on September 7.

The event is scheduled to showcase Kings Jordan Howard Jersey , the latest movie by Turkish-French director Deniz Gamze Erguven, whose 2015 Mustang was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

Her new work focuses on the 1992 race riots in Los Angeles and stars Oscar-winner Halle Berry and actor Daniel Craig.

Other highlights will be Mary Shelley by Saudi Arabia's first female director Haifaa Al Mansour, which stars Elle Fanning as the English author of the Gothic horror tale Frankenstein, and Dee Rees' Mudbound, a story of racial tensions in the segregated US South.

Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain will star in director Susanna White's Woman Walks Ahead, about a Brooklyn painter who travels to Dakota in 1890 to do a portrait of Sitting Bull.

Emma Stone Walter Payton Jersey , who won an Oscar this year for musical La La Land, will also star in War of the Sexes, the story of tennis legend Billie Jean King's showdown with Bobby Riggs.

In another retelling of sports history, Margot Robbie plays scandal-plagued US Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya.

David Gordon Green's Stronger starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany, which looks at the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing Khalil Mack Jersey , is also certain to create buzz in Toronto.

The Toronto film festival will run through September 17.

AMERICAN Tori Bowie believes her desire to win played a significant part in her well-timed dip at the finish line to claim the women’s 100 meters world championship gold on Sunday.

The momentum of 26-year-old Bowie’s dip sent her sprawling onto the track but she had done enough to edge past Ivory Coast’s Marie-Josee Ta Lou by one hundredth of a second.

“When I saw it pop up on the board and it was all confirmed, I thought, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe this just happened’,” Bowie told reporters.

“I don’t know where the finish (the dive) comes from. I guess just hunger, determination Bears Kids Jersey , I’m motivated, I want it.

“That’s the best part of my race, the last 40 meters. I’m currently still working on the beginning. It’s slowly getting better. I’m thankful with the slow progress.”

Bowie, who finished in 10.85 seconds, went one better than her silver medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro last year. She was considered by many as a better fit for the 200 race but she insisted on focusing on the shorter distance in London.

“I bet I’m the only person in the world that thought I could come out here and win the 100 meters tonight,” Bowie added. “I think the rest of the world was telling me Bears Youth Jersey , why are you choosing the 100 over the 200? This is how I’m feeling, this is the event I want to be the world champion in and it happened tonight.”

In fact, in 2012, Bowie sat at home in Sand Hill, Mississippi, when the Olympics were being held in London and watched the world’s greatest sporting event race by without her.

As a 21-year-old long jumper who had missed the US trials with injury Bears Womens Jersey , she gazed at the 200 final on television that night and, in a Eureka moment, was moved to suggest to her grandmother: “I really think I can beat those ladies”.

Five years on, in the very same stadium on Sunday night, Bowie, the long jumper turned sprinter Black Bears Jersey , brought her prediction to life by becoming world 100 champion — and for her next trick, she is already thinking of a golden double.

This race was supposed to be all about the dominant Jamaican Elaine Thompson, who had comfortably defeated Bowie in their two previous meetings in last year’s Olympic final and this summer’s Diamond League race in Shanghai.

The Netherlands’ Dafne Schippers was third while Thompson faded to fifth.

You will find difference regarding which WW2 battles are the most popular. There is no discrepancy as to the fights considered major. I guess the obvious factor used in determining the size would be "casualties" and then "monetary value".

Take for instance, the Battle of the Atlantic which began in 1939 with merchant ships traveling primarily to the United Kingdom and Russia. The merchant vessels delivering war materials and equipment had been shelled and sunk by German U-Boats as well as continued throughout the war until 1945. Eventually Allied Forces were able to get the upper-hand but at a huge price with more than 3,500 vendor ships and 175 war ships lost at sea. Germany also suffered severely using more than 783 U-boats lost. The Battle of the Atlantic lasted until the end of the war making it the longest running campaign in WW2 and definitely considered a major battle.

On the other end from the spectrum would be the Battle from the Philippine Sea in June 1944, a naval battle between the United States and Japan. One of the most one-side battles in WW2 history. This naval battle took place in the Philippine Ocean Bears Jersey Sale , near the Mariana Islands. This battle lasted 2 days, and had been labeled "The Great Marianas Turkey Shoot". The actual Imperial Navy of Japan lost three aircraft carriers and more than 600 planes. The Ough.S. Navy in contrast misplaced 123 planes and most of those had been a result of pilots trying to property at night.

The primary reason behind japan loss was due to unskilled pilots. Most of the experienced Japoneses pilots were shot down during previous WW2 battles from Guadalcanal and Midway, thereby pitting experienced American pilots against the inexperienced Japanese pilots proving to be disastrous. The Ough.S. Navy in contrast misplaced 123 plan.
