There is a bit of a time discrepancy here. Stranger Things season 3 is set in 1985, but Beetlejuice came out in 1988. Does that mean Mr. Clarke is a time traveler? That would be quite a twist. Now playing: Watch this: See all the Stranger Things season 3 photos Tags While the writers didn’t want to give any hints, they at least told us what it wasn’t. That list included Back to the Future, Jaws, Wonder Woman, posters, songs, Nancy Drew, shirts, Radio Shack, Mall Rats, Terminator, Evil Dead and Alien. They did confirm it was a pop culture movie reference.You can continue the search on your own if you think you have what it takes, or you can check out the answer, which was finally delivered by Twitter user Hackyzach. Hackyzach correctly identified the Easter egg as Beetlejuice’s tombstone, which was tucked into the town model created by science teacher Mr. Clarke. “Winner, winner, banana boat for dinner,” the writers declared.

Damage to a store is revealed after the stolen truck, which was driven through a crowd outside a department in Stockholm. Photo: AFPFlags flew at half-mast across Stockholm on Saturday as the city slowly returned to normal a day after a truck attack that killed four people, as police said they had the suspected driver in custody.A stolen beer truck ploughed into a crowd of people at the corner of the bustling Ahlens department store and the Drottninggatan pedestrian street on Friday afternoon, above ground from Stockholm’s central subway station.Fifteen people were injured, nine of whom remained in hospital on Saturday.It was the third terror attack in Europe in two weeks, coming on the heels of assaults in London and St. Petersburg, although there has been no immediate claim of responsibility.Previous attacks using vehicles have occurred in London, Berlin and the southern French city of Nice, all of them claimed by the so-called Islamic State (IS).”Terror hits the heart of the city,” Sweden’s biggest broadsheet Dagens Nyheter headlined its front page above a picture of the truck with its front end smashed into the store.Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said he had strengthened the country’s border controls, as flags flew at half-mast at parliament, the royal palace, the government offices, and City Hall.”Terrorists want us to be afraid, want us to change our behaviour, want us to not live our lives normally, but that is what we’re going to do. So terrorists can never defeat Sweden, never,” Lofven said.City streets were empty early Saturday, slowly filling as the day wore on as things began to return to normal — apart from a heavy police presence, a rare scene in this normally tranquil country.A swelling crowd milled by the security barrier erected around the scene, many placing flowers on the ground or in the security fence.Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria, 39, was one of those laying down a bouquet, wiping tears from her cheek.”I feel an incredible sadness, an emptiness,” she told reporters.But, she said, “society has demonstrated enormous strength and we stand together against this.”Suspected driver in custody Swedish police said a man arrested on “suspicion of a terrorist crime” was probably the truck driver.”We suspect that the man who was arrested is the perpetrator,” Stockholm police spokesman Lars Bystrom told AFP.The man was arrested “on suspicion of a terrorist crime through murder,” Karin Rosander, spokeswoman at the Swedish Prosecution Authority, said.The man was detained on Friday in Marsta, a suburb north of Stockholm. According to several media outlets, he is a 39-year-old of Uzbek origin and an IS supporter.Prosecutors did not disclose his identity, but police said his appearance “matched the description” of a photo they released of a suspect wearing a dark hoodie and military green jacket.Intelligence agency Sapo said meanwhile it was hunting for “possible accomplices or networks that may have been involved in the attack.” ‘Terrifying’ Witnesses described scenes of terror and panic on Friday.”A massive truck starts driving … and mangles everything and just drives over exactly everything,” eyewitness Rikard Gauffin told AFP.”It was so terrible and there were bodies lying everywhere… it was really terrifying,” he added.Passerby Hasan Sidi told Aftonbladet he saw two elderly women lying on the ground.He said people at the scene urged him to help one of the women who was “bleeding to death”.”One of them died… I don’t know if the other one made it,” Sidi said.The truck was towed away in the early hours of Saturday. ‘It was expected’ An attack on Stockholm was just a matter of time, the head of the Centre for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defence College, Magnus Ranstorp, told AFP.”It was pretty expected, the police and intelligence agency have practised for this several times the past year… We just didn’t know when it was going to happen,” he said.Friday’s attack was the latest in a string of assaults with vehicles in Europe.The deadliest came last year in France on the July 14 Bastille Day national holiday, when a man rammed a truck into a crowd in the Mediterranean resort of Nice, killing 86 people.In December, a man hijacked a truck and slammed into shoppers at a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people.In London last month, Khalid Masood, a 52-year-old convert to Islam, killed five people when he drove a car at high speed into pedestrians before launching a frenzied knife attack on a policeman guarding parliament.In 2014, IS called for attacks on citizens of Western countries and gave instructions on how they could be carried out without military equipment, using rocks or knives, or by running people over in vehicles.Friday’s attack was the second terror attack in Stockholm.In December 2010, a suicide bomber blew himself up, also on the Drottninggatan pedestrian street, lightly injuring several passersby.
Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau meets with US president Donald Trump during the G7 Summit in the Charlevoix town of La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada on 8 June. Photo: ReutersCanadian politicians of all stripes rallied round their prime minister on Monday after his cautious and polite defence of free trade rules drew an extraordinary personal rebuke from US president Donald Trump.The United States is Canada’s single biggest trade partner, with two-way exchanges of goods and services totalling $673.9 billion in 2017, and Washington enjoys a $8.4 billion surplus.Nevertheless, Trump appears determined to up-end the trade relationship, insisting that the US is the loser, and has demanded that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) be renegotiated or abandoned.Prime minister Justin Trudeau’s government is in talks to save the deal and, in concert with the other major trading powers in the G7 group of nations that met in Quebec over the weekend, pushed back against Trump.And in Ottawa on Monday, International trade minister Francois-Philippe Champagne urged lawmakers to speed ratification of the Trans-Pacific Partnership that might offset losses in US trade by binding Canada closer to Asia, Australia and Latin America.In particular, Canada, Japan and the European G7 powers are outraged by Trump’s unilateral-or illegal, in their eyes-imposition of tariffs on imported steel and aluminium in the name of preserving US industry on national security grounds.‘Circus thug’Trump skipped the end of the G7 summit on Saturday and was in the air en route to his historic nuclear summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un when Trudeau dubbed the national security justification “insulting.”And the young Canadian leader, who has attempted to maintain a public facade of friendship with the US leader, confirmed that he would regretfully impose retaliatory tariffs on US goods from next month to offset the steel levy.Trump was infuriated by the news conference and abruptly withdrew US support for the summit’s relatively anodyne closing statement, a boilerplate invocation of the importance of multilateral trade rules.He also insulted Trudeau personally, dubbing him “very dishonest and weak” and excoriated Canada’s managed dairy market, which is a tiny part of total exchanges but is protected by a huge 270 per cent tariff.He also suggested he is again studying possible tariffs on automobiles imported from Canada, a move which would have a much more substantial hit on both economies.The venom of the exchange sent shockwaves through foreign policy circles and rattled markets, as another sign of the weakness of the Western alliance and of the threat NAFTA will collapse.As might be expected, Trudeau’s foreign minister Chrystia Freeland took his side.“Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks, we don’t think that it’s a useful or productive way to do business and perhaps we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes to our relationship with our allies,” she declared.And the Canadian left, no friend of the American right, was quick to attack Trump’s outburst.“This is a small-minded man not fit for public office. Canada will not be pushed around by his circus thug bluster,” said Charlie Angus of the New Democratic Party.But even conservative and populist figures on the right of Canadian politics, some of them admirers of Trump’s brand of politics when it stays south of the border, rallied to their liberal premier.“We will stand shoulder to shoulder with the prime minister and the people of Canada,” said Doug Ford, the newly-elected anti-tax premier of Ontario and brother to the late crack-smoking mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford.Trade ‘obsession’Trump’s favourite US network Fox News invited Canada’s outspoken former conservative prime minister Stephen Harper, usually a reliable Trudeau critic, to discuss the crisis.But even he was nonplussed by Trump’s line of attack. “I don’t understand the obsession with trade relations with Canada,” he sighed.Despite his own US Trade Representative’s office confirming the trade surplus falls more than $8 billion in Washington’s favour Trump has repeatedly insisted that US workers are getting ripped off by NAFTA.Behind his claim lies a difference in how the countries’ calculate the trade figures.According to the USTR, America counts Canadian goods that are shipped to regional trading hubs within the United States and then re-exported back to Canada or Mexico as US exports.If these goods that originate in Canada and are eventually sold there without have been substantially worked upon in the United States are taken into account then Ottawa comes out the winner.Using this metric, the USTR reports, Canada can claim a $90 billion annual surplus in goods trade, although the US still has a large advantage in services.This seems to have been what Trump was referring to when he tweeted: “Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal.“According to a Canada release, they make almost 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with US (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Minimum is 17B.”‘Divisive and personal’Wherever Trump is getting his figures from, his aggressive personal attacks and determination to torpedo a prestigious world summit on Canadian soil have done nothing to head of the threat of trade war.“I’m in complete agreement with the prime minister’s statement,” said Jason Kenney, leader of the Conservative Party in oil-exporting Alberta Province and a Harper ally.“A reasonable, balanced and firm assertion that Canada will not be bullied, and that we will retaliate if the US Administration does not end its attack on our steel exports.”In Ontario, home to many car plants that would be hit by US tariffs, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer warned that NAFTA and the cause of free trade itself is now at stake.“Divisive rhetoric and personal attacks from the US administration are clearly unhelpful,” he added.
