Join the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) for a speaker event celebrating the completion of this important sculptural collection by renowned Inuit artist Angus Cockney (the Icewalker).
Through art, Ataa! Soona Luna? (Listen! What Moon?) interprets the Inuit stories of the year’s 12 moons as handed down from the Icewalker’s great-great-grandfather to his grandfather to the artist himself. Through this personal presentation about his journey translating these meaningful stories into physical sculptures, Cockney will share the importance of oral history in preserving Indigenous culture through the generations.
Two sculptures by the Icewalker will be on display during the event.
Date: Thursday, September 22, 2022
Time: Doors open at 7 pm, speaker starts at 7:15 pm
Location: Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre Auditorium
Tea and bannock will be available in the café after the event.
As managing editor and phones expert Philip Michaels discusses: “The importance of getting all the valuable things the iPhone 14 promises — great cameras, solid performance, a stellar design — without having to pay more for the privilege can’t be overstated, especially at a time when prices are ballooning all around us.
“The iPhone 14 Pro may be getting some impressive enhancements, but in this environment, the attractive price of the iPhone 14 could wind up being the most compelling feature of all.”
Speaking of options and specs, we’ve pulled together a specs table for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max based on the rumors so far.
With the exception of screen and battery size, the two phones look set to be very similar. That’s the same deal as with the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, but in contrast to the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which had differing camera capabilities.
Check out the specs list below.

However, this iPhone 14 Pro storage boost has been shot down in a report from Haitong International analyst Jeff Pu, who claims that Apple will be keeping storage the same as it was with the iPhone 13 Pro, which means sticking with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB storage options.
But Market intelligence firm TrendForce (opens in new tab) has predicted that the jump in price won’t be overly severe, with prices rising by $50 instead. Supposedly, this will be a means for Apple to be more cautious with pricing when global inflation in on the rise. We’re not sure how much we buy into that, but we’d much rather no price hike at all, especially if the standard iPhone 14 isn’t changing much.
Just in! A new iPhone 14 Pro rumor. This time it’s an image of what’s claimed to be an iPhone 14 Pro case over an iPhone 14 Pro, with the big take away being the camera lenses of the next-gen iPhone could be notably larger than those of the current Pro phones.
What does this mean in practical terms? Well larger lenses can let in more light and that can mean more detail is captured by a phone’s cameras. With the iPhone 14 Pro already tipped to get a 48MP main camera, letting in more light and boosting low-light photography too, could see it top our best camera phone list; though we’d need to put it through some through testing before drawing any conclusions.
As for the Apple Watch 8 itself, we’re not expecting to see a host of major changes, but a Pro model has been tipped.
And going by some alleged leaked case photos, it looks like the Apple Watch 8 Pro will be a seriously rugged smartwatch able to withstand the elements and rigorous outdoor activities while still offering access to a suite of watchOS 9 features. That’ll likely be thanks to additional buttons and a titanium construction by default.
Shifting away from iPhones, we’re expecting to see at least two new Apple Watch models on Wednesday. But there’s also the Apple Watch SE 2 that may make an appearance.
If you’re wondering whether you should be prepared to buy the iPhone 14 when it launches, or if you should wait for 12 months and get an iPhone 15, then phones writer Richard Priday has chewed over the iPhone 14 vs iPhone 15.
It’s looking like the iPhone 14 Pro will be the phone to get. But if you’re on an iPhone 13 Pro, you may want to consider waiting as the 2023 iPhone model could bring in some major changes, such as USB-C connectivity and a periscope camera.
One of the key iPhone 14 rumors is that the standard models will stick with the current A15 processor, but that Pro models will get a new A16 Bionic chip.
This is according to the Wall Street Journal (opens in new tab), citing “people familiar with the plans.” There’s no indication as to how the A15 will be enhanced — but we’d guess that it would offer slightly higher performance than the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, which offered one extra GPU core compared to the A15 used in the base iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
The dual chip approach is one we’ve heard lots about already. For instance, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has also tipped the regular iPhone 14s to stick with A15, while the Pro models get an upgrade.
That’s according to well-connected Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, who writes in his Power On newsletter (opens in new tab) that “beyond the notch, I’m told to expect the iPhone 14 Pro models to appear slightly larger overall and include slimmer bezels. They will have bigger batteries too.”
Good morning and welcome to our Apple event rumors live blog. We’ll be updating this regularly over the next day-and-a-bit leading up to the event itself, which is due to start at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT / 6 p.m. BST tomorrow (September 7).
There’s certainly no shortage of last-minute leaks and speculation around the various devices tipped to launch tomorrow, so read on for our thoughts on each one.

Marvel Studios has long been famous for its blockbuster announcements events that see President Kevin Feige stand before a crowd to showcase the future of the MCU. After a two-year hiatus from such events due to the pandemic, Feige returned to San Diego Comic-Con in July to show off the Multiverse Saga, which also got its official name at the fan convention.
The grand-scale event brought with it new footage, the Phase 5 slate, and confirmation for two new Avengers blockbusters on the way. Despite that, Marvel Studios still left some gaps in the pipeline, most notably in Phase 6 to be filled in at a later date that may be coming soon.
Feige will soon take the stage once more at the bi-annual D23 convention in a panel that will be shared with Lucasfilm and other Disney studios. Marvel Studios is expected to bring plenty to the table and The Direct has some predictions for the event before it takes place on Saturday, September 10.
Who knows whether this will amount to the full online release of the second trailer or just attendee-exclusive footage, but the next public look can’t be far away. Perhaps fans will finally see a closer look at Namor and his Kingdom of Talocan.
Werewolf by Night Finally Announced
Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ Halloween Special has been among the worst-kept secrets in its history. Composer Michael Giacchino will make his directorial debut on the secretive project that stars Gael García Bernal and Laura Donnelly.
Having previously gone undiscussed at Comic-Con, the Holiday Special ought to be highlighted at D23 only a few months out from release. This should involve the reveal of the first trailer, but who knows whether it will find its way online or remain exclusive to attendees.
Thunderbolts was one of the biggest reveals of Comic-Con as it will round out Phase 5 on July 26, 2024, with production expected to begin early next year. Unfortunately, Feige omitted the roster from his last presentation, but that ought to come at D23 this month.
Progress appears to be moving fast on Disney+’s Wonder Man series that is being developed by Shang-Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton as a “Hollywood satire.” The cast already includes the return of Ben Kingsley’s Trevor Slattery, but D23 ought to offer the reveal of the titular star and a release window.
Despite having concluded filming prior to the event, The Marvels didn’t show any footage at Comic-Con, likely due to the Ms. Marvel finale still being fresh. With some time now passed, attendees ought to catch an exclusive look at the all-female ensemble, showing off Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Monica Rambeau.
Phase 5 Disney+ Series Make Waves
After She-Hulk wraps up in October, Marvel Studios won’t have another Disney+ series until spring’s Secret Invasion. Nick Fury’s mystery thriller may have already shown footage at Comic-Con, but D23 will likely bring exclusive peeks at Echo and Loki Season 2, the former of which has already wrapped filming.
The other Phase 5 Disney+ series include Ironheart, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, and Daredevil: Born Again, none of which would have enough footage to reveal. However, there may still be casting announcements or other news to offer.
She-Hulk Drops Mid-Season Trailer
By the time D23 gets underway, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will have just premiered the fourth installment of its nine-episode season. As Disney will likely be eager to market the legal comedy to some degree at its biggest event of the year, a mid-season trailer, or at least some new footage, ought to be shown.
Now, most are expecting Armor Wars to finally get its moment in the spotlight at D23 as it gets slotted into one of the vacant Phase 6 release slots. Perhaps this will come with casting, storyline details, and hints toward Ironheart connections.
As Marvel Studios will probably want the Eternals to get involved in the climax of the Multiverse Saga, this should release at some point in 2025 in order to free up the team from their current cliffhanger ahead of the crossover event. So, if that is indeed the plan, it may become official
Shang-Chi 2 Goes Official
Shang-Chi 2 has already been revealed to be in development but has yet to be made official. One factor that could greatly influence where Shang-Chi 2 places in the future is whether the first film’s director will be returning.
Hulk fans have been waiting for a sequel to The Incredible Hulk for over a decade now, but rights issues with Universal have prevented that. Now, World War Hulk appears to be in the pipeline and may even be getting set up by She-Hulk: Attorney at Law right now.
Production will reportedly begin in the not-too-distant future, so an announcement is entirely possible. But if the storyline hinges around the latter episodes of She-Hulk then that reveal may be saved until later to avoid spoilers.
Among Marvel Studios’ most shocking event moments yet was the shock reveal of Mahershala Ali’s Blade at Comic-Con 2019. Part of what made this moment so special was the fact this had yet to be reported anywhere, and perhaps Kevin Feige has something similar up his sleeves again.
One report suggested Marvel Studios has signed John Boyega, Henry Cavill, Jodie Comer, Daisy Edgar-Jones, John Krasinski, Giancarlo Esposito, and Denzel Washington in various roles that may be announced at D23. For now, this rumor is unverified, but this may be a taste of the potential shock castings to expect.
Secret Wars won’t have to begin filming until 2024, so Marvel Studios doesn’t necessarily need to choose and announce a director right now. But if Kevin Feige already has one lined up, he may choose to announce that name at D23.
However, even if a solo project is on the cards for Wanda, Marvel Studios may wish to deliver her triumphant return on screen before announcing anything. After all, her shocking return in Avengers 5 to turn the tides in the fight against Kang the Conqueror would be jaw-dropping for moviegoers.
Avenger Icons Receive Sequels
With the Multiverse Saga spanning three Phases, many of the flicks coming earlier in the saga ought to receive sequels by the time the end of it all. Doctor Strange 2 and Thor 4 have both arrived this summer and left off on intriguing cliffhangers to tease the future of their characters, so when will they be resolved?
As of now, there have been no major reports pointing toward either Doctor Strange 3or Thor 5having entered development, lowering the chances of a mention at D23. But perhaps Marvel Studios will come with some surprises to continue these stories before the current saga comes to a close.
Disney+ Season 2 Renewals
On the topic of sequels, the time may have come for more Disney+ series to receive a coveted Season 2 renewal. As of now, Loki is the only live-action MCU show to have confirmed a follow-up is on the way, but the odds are high that more will eventually follow suit, even if that’s not necessarily at D23.
With every Marvel Studios presentation since acquiring Fox, fans have been eagerly awaiting news on the X-Men. Now, the odds are higher than ever as the MCU has begun planting seeds for their introduction with Ms. Marvel, but the time may still not be quite right yet.
Fantastic Four may have found its director in Matt Shakman, but there’s still the question of which actors will bring Marvel’s First Family to life. As high as hopes may be to see the cast come out on stage, actors have likely yet to be signed as the newfound director ought to have some say in that choice.
But with filming placed to begin next year, Marvel Studios is likely currently hard at work on finding its four leading actors. If those, or even any of them, happen to be found before D23, there’s a chance they will be revealed at the event.
If these rumors were to pay off, Doctor Doom could be joining the MCU before the year is out, meaning an actor may well have been cast. Granted, chances are Marvel Studios will want to keep any shocking cameo from the Fantastic Four villain quiet, but perhaps they may lean into it to further push the sequel.
The Phase 6 Slate Gets Completed
Almost every potential Phase 6 project was placed in the lower echelon of likelihood on this list. This comes down to the chance that Kevin Feige steers clear of the Multiverse Saga’s conclusion altogether and instead focuses on Phase 5.
The first Phase 6 entry isn’t expected to release until Fall 2024, so Marvel Studios could comfortably save those announcements for 2023’s Comic-Con. But even though those projects likely won’t start filming until the second half of 2023, Feige may wish to complete the picture of the Multiverse Saga sooner rather than later.
Manage Expectations for the MCU at D23
It’s important to go into D23 with reasonable expectations for what Marvel Studios will reveal. Feige just dropped plenty of major bombshells at Comic-Con, so it wouldn’t be awfully surprising if D23 isn’t quite as spectacular.
As the studio will probably want to save some announcements for future events, the Phase 6 slate may well be left incomplete. After all, there are still two more Comic-Cons to come before the final phase of the Multiverse Saga gets underway.
D23 ought to be used more as a platform to expand on what has already been revealed, as opposed to announcing tons of new projects. Nonetheless, the D23 weekend will undoubtedly be an exciting one for MCU fans.
Dustin Johnson gave LIV Golf its first big moment Sunday when he made a 35-foot eagle putt on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the LIV Golf Invitational-Boston for his first victory in 19 months.
Johnson’s putt on the par-5 18th was going so fast it might have rolled some 6 feet past the hole. But it hit the back of the cup and dropped down near the front of the cup to beat Joaquin Niemann and Anirban Lahiri.
He raised his arm and dropped it for a slow-motion uppercut, instead slapping hands with Austin Johnson, his brother and caddie. The win was worth $4 million US for Johnson. With his team winning again, he now has made $9,962,500 in four events.
“It was going a little fast, but it was a good line,” Johnson said with a big smile. “I got some unlucky breaks (on No. 18) the first time around. It owed me one and I got it.”
Cue the champagne 🍾🍾🍾<a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/LIVGolf?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#LIVGolf</a> <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/LIVGolfBoston?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#LIVGolfBoston</a> <a href=”https://t.co/FvCSVgiPLU”>pic.twitter.com/FvCSVgiPLU</a>
The first playoff in four LIV Golf events capped an otherwise sloppy finish by so many others who had a chance.
Johnson, who closed with a 5-under 65, needed a birdie on the par-5 18th. His drive bounced into the right rough, his iron to lay up went into the trees well to the left and he had to scramble for par to join Lahiri (64) and Niemann (66) at 15-under 265.
Lahiri hit a fairway metal to 5 feet on the 18th in regulation, and his eagle putt that would have won it rolled around the right edge of the cup.
Lee Westwood finished one shot out of a playoff after a 62 that included bogeys on two of his last three holes. He was poised to win when he bounced back from a bogey on No. 1 in the shotgun start with a short birdie on the par-3 second.
He finished on No. 3, a 352-yard hole and great birdie opportunity. Westwood hit a lob wedge that was so fat it came up some 40 feet short of the pin and into a bunker. He blasted out weakly and missed the 18-foot par putt.
“The lob wedge was a little fat,” Westwood said. “Make 3 and I win the tournament and I make 5. It’s a sickening way to finish.”
British Open champion Cameron Smith, among six players who recently signed with the Saudi-funded league, had a 63. He also was tied for the lead until hitting his tee shot into the trees on No. 1, his 17th hole, and having to pitch out sideways. He made bogey.
WATCH | How Saudi Arabia is using LIV Golf to Sportswash its global image:
Dave Zirin joins host Morgan Campbell, to discuss the motivations of Saudi Arabia in creating and funding the LIV Golf tour.
Smith tied for fourth with Westwood. Each made just over $1 million.
Johnson had not won since the Saudi International on Feb. 7, 2021, when it was part of the European tour schedule. The player who has been No. 1 longer than anyone since Tiger Woods slipped out of the top 15 in the world when he signed with LIV Golf.
He was part of the rival league from the start in early June outside London, and he has finished in the top 10 in all of them.
“I’ve had a chance to win every one,” he said. “That’s three in a row for the team, and for me to get my first, I’m feeling good.”

With just hours to go until Burning Man’s namesake event — igniting the wooden “man” effigy— a dust storm hit the Black Rock Desert in Nevada and threatened to derail the nine-day-long festival.
Around 4 p.m. on Saturday, Burning Man’s official handle tweeted that the playa, the affectionate nickname for the desert area where the festival takes place, was experiencing “whiteout conditions.” The account informed would-be travelers that the main gate had been closed and declared bluntly, “do not drive.”

Apple will be using its September 7 special event to launch the second generation of AirPods Pro alongside the iPhone 14, a report claims, just days ahead of the event itself.
Apple’s special events in September primarily focus on the annual iPhone update, but other products do get launched at around the same time. While AirPods are considered to be a good candidate for a launch during the same event, a report insists that Apple will be bringing out new AirPods Pro this time around.
During the event, AirPods Pro 2 will be unveiled, according to Mark Gurman’s “Power On” newsletter for Bloomberg on Sunday. Though rumors were fairly strong about a launch sometime in the fall, Gurman insists it will happen during Wednesday’s presentation.
Over the months, rumors for the personal audio accessories have put forward claims of a stemless design, some debate over whether there will be some form of built-in fitness tracking, and case changes. There have been suggestions the charging case could include a form of hearing aid functionality, complete with a microphone and a speaker that could help with Find My recovery.
However, it is also entirely plausible that the new AirPods Pro could more closely resemble the first generation in form and function, with internal hardware improvements including changes to the H1 chip and Bluetooth connectivity a possibility.
What is certainly rumored to stay the same is connectivity for charging, with the case thought to continue with Lightning for the moment, but changing to USB-C in 2023.
Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory member Wayne Kaboni promoted the Indigenous Lacrosse Association during a weekend of Premier Lacrosse League action in Seattle.
By Sam Laskaris
SEATTLE – Wayne Kaboni finally got an opportunity to promote an association that he co-founded during a weekend of pro field lacrosse games.
Kaboni, a member of Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory who now lives in Merritt, B.C., helped launch the Indigenous Lacrosse Association (ILA) in 2018.
The ILA promotes the history of the sport and also advocates to grow the game at the community, provincial, national, and international levels.
The ILA was created following the support it received from the Assembly of First Nations during its annual general assembly in 2018, held in Vancouver that year.
The ILA also recently received another tremendous boost, on Aug. 20 and Aug. 21. That’s because Kaboni had a booth set up in Seattle promoting the association, during weekend action for the Premier Lacrosse League (PLL), a professional men’s field lacrosse circuit, which includes many of the sport’s top players.
The PLL, which features eight clubs, has all of its teams travel to different American cities each weekend, from June through September.
League entrants do not represent specific cities. Participating squads are named Whipsnakes, Chrome, Archers, Atlas, Waterdogs, Redwoods, Chaos, and Cannons.
Kaboni said he’s been in contact with PLL officials the past couple of years trying to figure out how he could promote the ILA at one of their weekend events. The original plan was to have an ILA booth at a PLL weekend in 2020.
“COVID kind of changed the trajectory of everything,” Kaboni said, adding the COVID-19 pandemic hindered his ability to travel to the United States. “And we couldn’t cross the border last year.”
Kaboni estimates at least 750 fans dropped by his booth during the PLL stop in Seattle. They were able to learn about the history of the sport and see various types of sticks that have been utilized in the sport over the years.
“We talk about the game,” Kaboni said. “And we let people hold the sticks and tell them about the stickgames.”
Kaboni said wooden sticks, which used to be the norm in lacrosse, were a huge hit for those who visited the ILA booth.
“People got to see some of the wooden sticks,” he said. “Some of them had never seen or held one before.”
Four PLL contests were held during the weekend, two on Saturday and two more on Sunday.
Kaboni said spectators were dropping by the ILA booth throughout the weekend.
“It was steady,” he said. “I went through a box of business cards.”
Kaboni isn’t surprised that the PLL, which was launched in 2019, was keen to include the ILA at one of its weekends.
“Their goal is the same as ours – growing the game,” Kaboni said.
Besides the fact the ILA booth had numerous fans dropping by throughout the weekend, Kaboni said there was another way he was able to determine the association created some interest.
“We had lots of new followers on our Facebook page,” he said. “That’s an indication that it was a success.”
In the past few months, Labiotech.eu has boosted its coverage range to go global, added a podcast, expanded to three weekly newsletters, introduced special monthly newsletters, and now we’ve added another string to our bow – conference and event listings.
The page is designed so visitors can easily jump between months and events. Listings have been arranged by date, and there are sub-sections for the various regions: Europe, the Americas, Asia/Pacific, Africa, and virtual-only events. Each listing has the name of the event, which is also a link, the dates, and location.
Our reasoning behind the page was to provide a new resource for readers to see what’s happening now that we’re trying to re-establish a post-lockdown world.
Finding all of the conferences, trade shows and other meetings was quite a challenge, and involved a lot of searching, so we figured if we have to spend hours finding events, then our readers will too, so we’ve done our best to add as many as we can to the listings.
Clearly, we won’t get them all. If you know something we’ve missed, please send us the details.
Also, we should point out we aren’t endorsing the events in question, it’s simply a list and a resource. Visitors should check the events carefully to ensure they are relevant. This includes whether there are any restrictions, visa requirements, or if there are any changes, postponements or cancellations.
Of course, we will try our best to update the page frequently, and add new events as they are announced.
We’ve also included a short list of conferences and events Labiotech will be covering. So, if you are attending any of those, and have some breaking news for us, get in touch. We’d be happy to sit down and do an interview about it. Or stand up and do an interview. And if you don’t have any news but just want to meet up and say hello, that’s great, too. As long as it’s not to complain about the podcast…
