The iconic Oscars statuette has been given a facelift ahead of this year's ceremony Dorian O'Daniel Youth Jersey , going back to the "fine art roots" of the award handed out during Hollywood's golden age.

The world's most recognized trophy will retain its characteristic 24-karat gold finish, but swaps a pewter alloy cast for the bronze used in the 1929 original Derrick Nnadi Youth Jersey , said the Academy, announcing that it had swapped manufacturers.

"With the help of some 21st century technology Breeland Speaks Youth Jersey , we're able to honor the Oscars' proud beginnings," Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs said.

"The new statuette exemplifies impeccable craftsmanship and the enduring nature of art."

The Academy said Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry in Rock Tavern Tanoh Kpassagnon Womens Jersey , New York, had restored the "subtle features" of sculptor George Stanley's original by creating digital scans before 3D-printing a mold so it could be cast in wax.

Each wax statuette was coated in a ceramic shell that was cured and fired at 871 C Chris Conley Womens Jersey , melting the wax away and leaving an empty Oscar-shaped form.

The statuettes were then cast in liquid bronze, cooled and sanded to a mirror polish finish.

It takes around three months to produce 50 statuettes using this method Mitch Morse Womens Jersey , according to the Academy.

The new Oscar is the same size as its immediate predecessor, which had been made by Chicago-based R.S. Owens since 1982.

Officially named the Academy Award of Merit Chris Jones Womens Jersey , the statuette is better known as Oscar, but the origins of the moniker remain disputed.

Bette Davis claimed to have nicknamed the trophy after her first husband's middle name.

One popular story has it that upon seeing the trophy for the first time Travis Kelce Womens Jersey , Academy librarian Margaret Herrick remarked that it resembled her Uncle Oscar.

TOKYO, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Japan's industrial output stalled in September as private consumption and household spending remained strained and overseas demand continued to wane, government data indicated Monday.

According to a preliminary report by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the index of output at factories and mines stood at 97.8 against the base of 100 in 2010.

The reading equates to an unchanged 1.3 percent increase logged in August, with the figure for the July-September period logging a mediocre 1.1 percent rise from the previous quarter, the trade ministry said.

The ministry also said of the manufacturers it polled, expectations are now for a mere 1.1 percent increase in output in October followed by a slightly more optimistic 2.1 percent rise in November.

The government, however, maintained its basic assessment, stating that "industrial production shows signs of increase at a moderate pace."

The data set, specifically, showed that the index of industrial shipments rose 1.1 percent to 95.7 in the recording period, but inventories retreated 0.4 percent to 111.0.

While the ministry evidently sees an uptick in factory production in the coming months, market economists remain somewhat more circumspect, believing that key drivers are lacking and hence the incentive for producers to increase their output remains elusive, which will have a negative knock-on effect on the nation's gross domestic product.

"Looking at the (industrial) production report, I think GDP will lack strength and post a small gain, which would increase calls for stimulus measures to boost growth," Toru Suehiro, a senior market economist at Mizuho Securities Co. was quoted as saying.

"There is no sector that can drive growth in the long term and the focus now will shift to GDP for July-September," Suehiro said.

With the trade ministry also saying Monday that retail sales had slumped in the same recording period, falling 1.9 percent from a year earlier and at a bigger margin that median market expectations, in twine with core consumer prices falling 0.5 percent this month from a year earlier, marking the seventh straight month of declines, pressure is now on the government and the central bank to take proactive measures.

However, the exigent state of Japan's economy and the failings of numerous installations of the prime minister's "Abenomics" brand of economic policies, against a backdrop of a rapidly aging society and shrinking population, threaten to further batter Japan's economy, if sustainable solutions aren't actualized forthwith and beyond the government's rhetoric.

To this end, Bank of Japan (BOJ) Governor Haruhiko Kuroda has expressed his frustration with the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for its ineffectual endeavors to lift the economy out of its decades-long malaise.

Kuroda said recently that the central bank will likely once again fail to achieve its 2 percent inflation goal within a time frame that has already been delayed four times, with the central bank chief imploring Abe and his government to refocus its attention on the economy and do more to fulfill its pledge to the electorate to rescue, reform and reboot the stagnant economy.

"As for the long-term economic outlook, given Japan's aging population and low birth rate, an increase in labor force participation and a further rise in labor productivity are both essential if Japan is to lift sustainable long-run growth. Indeed, labor market reform is a vital part of the current government's policy agenda," the BOJ chief said.

The BOJ starts a two-day meeting on Monday and is expected to review its inflation outlook and monetary policy, although leading economists believe the central bank will, for the time being, stand pat on its current policy paradigm.

BEIJING, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- To improve consumer goods, increase supply and make the tertiary sector a new growth driver, China will allow more investment from private and non-government entities, according to an official with the top economic planner Tuesday.
