Our correspondent
Imphal, Nov 19 (EMN): Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh officially launched the state’s Sagol Tongba Police (Manipur Mounted Police) unit to maintain public order around Imphal on November 18.

A well-decorated Sagol Tongba Police Team from the Manipur Police Department was also on display ahead of the opening of the 2022 1st Chief Minister’s Sagol Kangjei (a unique traditional polo) Championship at Manung Kangjeibung, a former polo ground at the fort of Kangla to Imphal.

“With the launching of the Sagol Tongba Police (Manipur Mounted Police), each Manipur Rifle Battalion would also be given the task of raising 10 Manipur ponies each,” Biren Singh said, addressing the gathering.

“It can help preserve and promote our pony breed beyond state initiatives to preserve the pony,” he added.

The modern game of polo originated in Manipur and Mapal Kangjeibung – the oldest living polo ground in the world – is located in the heart of Imphal city.

Mentioning that Sagol Kangjei is not just a game, he said, it also symbolizes the role of the Manipuri pony and the war techniques possessed by the soldiers of Manipur to defend the sovereignty of the land during ancient times. “Manipuri ponies have always been part of the state’s civilization and culture,” he said.

He also appreciated the All Manipur Polo Association for organizing such an important Sagol Kangjei Championship which is expected to continue until November 27 with the active participation of 14 teams.

MP Rajya Sabha Maharaja Leishemba Sanajaoba also said that hosting the championship every year would help preserve the pony and also promote the Sagol Kangjei.

During today’s event, Biren Singh also honored veteran Sagol Kangjei players with a citation and cash reward, honoring their contribution to promoting the game.

KONOMIE ISLAND, Australia – Beneath the turquoise waters off the Australian coast lies one of the world’s natural wonders, an underwater rainbow jungle teeming with life that scientists say is showing some of the most clear about climate change.

The Great Barrier Reef, battered but not broken by the impacts of climate change, inspires both hope and concern as researchers race to figure out how it can survive a warming world. Authorities are trying to buy time on the reef by combining ancient knowledge with new technologies. They are studying coral reproduction in hopes of speeding up regrowth and adapting it to warmer, rougher seas.

Underwater heat waves and cyclones caused in part by greenhouse gas emissions have devastated some of the 3,000 coral reefs that make up the Great Barrier Reef. Pollution clogs its waters, and outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish have ravaged its corals.

Researchers say that climate change is already testing the dynamic marine superstructure and everything that depends on it – and that more destruction is to come.

“It is a clear signal of climate change. It’s going to happen again and again.” said Anne Hoggett, director of the Lizard Island research station, of the continued damage to the reef from stronger storms and sea heat waves. “It’s going to be a roller coaster.”

Billions of microscopic animals called polyps have built this breathtaking 1,400 mile long colossus that is visible from space and possibly a million years old. It is home to thousands of known plant and animal species and has a $6.4 billion annual tourism industry.

“Corals are the engineers. They build shelter and food for countless animals,” said Mike Emslie, head of the long-term reef monitoring program at the Australian Institute of Marine Science.

Emslie’s team has seen disasters get worse and more frequent in 37 years of underwater surveys.

Heat waves in recent years have caused corals to expel countless tiny organisms that feed reefs through photosynthesis, causing branches to lose color or “bleach.” Without these algae, corals fail to grow, can become brittle and provide less to the approximately 9,000 reef-dependent species. The cyclones of the past twelve years have destroyed hectares of coral. Each of these disasters was a historic disaster in its own right, but without time to recover between events, the reef could not regrow.

However, during the last heat wave, the Emslie team at AIMS noticed new corals growing faster than expected.

“The reef is not dead” he said. “It’s an amazing, beautiful, complex and remarkable system that has the ability to recover if given the chance – and the best way to give it a chance is to reduce carbon emissions.”

The first step in the government’s reef restoration plan is to better understand the enigmatic life cycle of the coral itself.

To do this, dozens of Australian researchers set sail across the reef when conditions are right for spawning during a spawning which is the only time of year when coral polyps reproduce naturally when winter heats up. in spring.

But scientists say that’s too slow if corals are to survive global warming. So they don scuba gear to collect coral eggs and sperm during spawning. Back in the labs, they’re testing ways to speed up the reproductive cycle of corals and boost genes that survive higher temperatures.

On a recent blustery afternoon, Carly Randall, who leads the AIMS coral restoration program, stood amidst buckets full of coral specimens and experimental coral planting technologies. She said the long term plan is to grow “tens to hundreds of millions” of baby corals each year and plant them across the reef.

Randall compared it to planting trees with drones but underwater.

His colleagues at AIMS successfully bred corals in an off-season laboratory, a crucial first step in being able to introduce genetic adaptations like heat resistance on a large scale.

Engineers are designing robots to fit a mothership that would deploy underwater drones. These drones attached genetically selected corals to the reef with boomerang-shaped clips. Corals in specific targets will improve the reef “natural recovery processes” which would end up “to exceed the work we have done to maintain it despite climate change,” she says.

But Randall warns that robots, coral farms and skilled divers “absolutely won’t work if we don’t get the emissions under control.”

“It’s one of many tools in the toolkit that’s under development,” she says. “But unless we get the emissions under control, we don’t have much hope for the reef ecosystem.”

In her rental bathroom, Stockman chose to surround the mirror with a vibrant mural. “The design world is embracing ornamentation and thriving right now, which I’m thrilled about because it’s my natural inclination,” she explains. Stockman is particularly inspired by the house of Jean Cocteau on the Côte d’Azur. “He painted majestic, ancient figures and patterns on his walls to frame his shelves or doors,” she explains. “Cocteau brought the real-life, inhabited elements of a room into the context of his whimsical work of art, and the resulting effect was that the house itself became a work of art.” Seeking to replicate this “room as art” effect in her own space, Stockman painted a mural in her favorite hues, drawing inspiration from Mughal paintings covering the walls of Jaipur, India, as well as Audubon prints. spoonbill bird classics. “There’s something extremely liberating about rolling up your sleeves and painting directly on your wall,” she says. “It satisfies a primal childhood impulse to treat your walls like blank canvases.”

Revive a dock mirror with paint

You’d never know this dock mirror got its second life with metallic paint applied by designer Mallory Fletchall.

Reserve Home content creator Mallory Fletchall was thrilled when she finally found an antique dock mirror that would fit perfectly between the living room windows of her Brooklyn apartment. However, she wasn’t exactly thrilled that she had been painted white at some point. “I noticed some of the original gilding in a few places, so we decided to uncover as much as we could,” she says. Using a combination of three Rub-N-Buff colors, Fletchall was able to restore the mirror to its golden glory. “As soon as we did, the mirror looked like an original piece that came with the apartment,” she adds.

St. Louis-based blogger Arin Jura added a major boost to an ordinary mirror, proving that even the most basic pieces can be transformed into stylish accent pieces. The first step was to frame the mirror. Jura mounted a frameless mirror on scrap wood for added stability. She also added the hardware to the back, then cut another piece of wood in the shape of an arc, which she attached to the top of the mirror. “We made sure to leave extra space above the mirror on the wood so we could add decorative elements above the mirror, and it was an inexpensive way to add height,” she says. Jura then used decorative trim to build a frame for the mirror, added two ornate pieces on top, and created small additional whimsical-looking pieces using resin molds, which she then secured with hot glue. Jura suggests painting the mirror gold, but finishing the piece with Rub-N-Buff for an aged look.

FRANKFURT – The largest and most important Frankfurt Book Fair in the world is something I look forward to every October. This year, after two years of limitations imposed by the Covid pandemic, the fair opened as an in-person event, and people came in droves. Although the numbers still did not reach those of the pre-pandemic years, there were a good 4,000 exhibitors from 95 countries and 180,000 visitors. During the first two days, reserved for professional visitors, there were 93,000 people present, and from Friday to Sunday this figure was increased by another 87,000 private visitors.

“Translate, Transfer, Transform” was this year’s theme, and it couldn’t have been more fitting. In these times of strategic crisis and war, we need more than ever to improve communication, to speak the language of others and, through fruitful exchanges of ideas, to help transform a suffering world.

It is therefore not surprising that the Armenian Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports has set up a stand dedicated to the art of translation, not in the abstract, but in the concrete. The spacious stand bore the name and image of Yeghishe Charents, in commemoration of the 125th anniversary of his birth. And among the many books on display were translations of his works in different languages: among the new editions published this year are those in English, French and Italian.

I spoke to Armen Sargsyan, a senior literature specialist at the ministry in Yerevan, his colleague, Tatev Sukiasyan, and Astghik Saribekyan, an Armenian living in Germany who offered her services to translate for German guests. Sarkissian pointed me to the various new translations of Charents’ works, then took a special book from the shelf to show me. This anniversary edition contains the most famous work of the beloved Armenian poet, “Yes Im Anoush Hayastani” (“My sweet Armenia”). The deluxe edition contains the poem translated into 35 languages. Illustrations by artist Martiros Sarian adorn the pages. Charents’ granddaughter, Gohar Charents, organized the ambitious translation project which was presented in 2019. In her introduction, she cited Sarian’s praise of the literary masterpiece as a “panoramic portrait of our ancient country…both a prayer and an oath…a hymn to freedom.”

Recent translations of works by Charents. Jubilee edition in the center

What better way to celebrate the anniversary of Charents’ birth than with a deluxe edition of translations that make his monumental poem available to readers around the world? But it’s not just the translations honoring the accomplishments of this great Armenian poet that are noteworthy. Publishing houses in Armenia have been active for the past 20 years, and for the past four years have focused their efforts on a project to promote translations. The goal is to make classical and contemporary Armenian literature available in modern translations to a global readership. To date, no less than 70 books in more than 20 languages ​​have been published.

The “Armenian Literature in Translations” program launched by the ministry, I read in a brochure, “aims to ensure that the best of Armenian prose, poetry, drama, journalism and children’s literature is accessible and known beyond the borders of Armenia”. Under this program, financial support is available for foreign publishers who will produce books of Armenian literature in translation.

By Lucy Apthorp Leske

(27 Oct 2022) All Hallow’s Eve, or Halloween as we’ve learned, has garden roots dating back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, a harvest festival.

In addition to marking the end of summer, people often lit fires and wore costumes to ward off evil as the nights grew longer and darker. With most of the population illiterate and the Enlightenment centuries, people relied on practices like this and folklore to pass stories and information from one generation to the next.

Success in the garden was essential for survival, so it was important to remember what to do and what not to do to ensure a bountiful harvest.

Some of these “old wives’ tales” persist today and most, unsurprisingly, relate to the weather. Despite advances in weather science, predicting the weather sometimes seems as mysterious as staring into a crystal ball. Superstition and myth still fill the advice columns and the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

Here are some that are true, and some that are superimposed:

• Moon Phase Gardening: It is said that “plants of darkness”, or root crops whose main harvestable crop grows underground, must be planted during the waning moon, otherwise they will “all go to the top” while the Aerial crops like green vegetables should be planted during the rising moon.

This piece of tradition has been around for centuries and has some truth to it. Apparently, when the moon exerts or releases its gravitational pull on Earth, plants respond in their growth patterns.

Additionally, a waxing or crescent moon en route to full draws moisture from the soil closer to the surface. Bright light at night promotes top growth. After the full moon, on the other hand, soil moisture decreases, moonlight decreases, and aerial growth slows while root growth increases.

Now is a good time to plant bulbs and prune trees. During the darkness of the moon, the conventional wisdom is to let the garden rest.

• Do not undertake transplants before the three iron men of May: this saying of my late father refers to the three days of the last full moon in May and the cold snap that often accompanies them if the air is dry and the sky clear. Again, when people knew less about science and only had the customs shared by family and neighbors, it made a lot of sense. It was also before global warming. I can’t remember the last time we had a freeze in May in Nantucket.

• Predict the weather by reading “tea leaves”: There are dozens of old wives’ tales that link future weather to current observations. The first people to inhabit North and South America based their gardening decisions on phenology, or observing the patterns or behavior of other organisms to make decisions.

An example of this is the common advice to plant corn when the oak leaves are as big as a squirrel’s ear. Weather conditions that bring oak trees out of dormancy and begin to produce leaves are favorable for corn germination.

But phenology consists of observing what is happening or has just happened in order to make current decisions. Predicting winter weather by judging the thickness or color of a woolly bear caterpillar is nonsense. Other superstitions that equate thick nutshells or bountiful apple harvests with a harsh winter assume that plants plan ahead to provide animals with more to eat. No.

Here’s one for Nantucket: every foggy day in August portends a snowy day in winter. I think we can all agree that if that were true we would have snow piled up to the eaves every winter here.






• Magical Plants: The most mysterious garden folklore concerns the mystical and magical properties of plants. A number of our favorite herbs, vegetables, and garden tools are believed to bring good luck or protect us from harm. Here are some excerpts from the Old Farmer’s Almanac: “Scatter Solomon’s seal on the ground to banish snakes and poisonous creatures from the room.

“To protect your home from lightning, collect hazel branches on Palm Sunday and keep them in water.”

“Put fennel in your keyhole or hang it above your door to protect you from evil spirits.

“Never carry a hoe around the house. If you do it by mistake, take it back walking backwards to avoid bad luck.

“Never walk under a ladder, which is Satan’s territory. If you must, cross your fingers or make the fig sign (closed fist, with the thumb between the index and middle fingers).

“Never drive a nail after sunset, or you’ll wake up the tree gods.”

“Nail an evergreen branch to new rafters for good luck. An empty hornet’s nest, hanging high, will also bring good luck to a house of any age.

Other plants believed to do fantastical things include foxglove, which is believed to give witches the power to fly (probably based on the fact that the plant is poisonous and produces hallucinations if ingested), lady’s mantle, which plays a key role in a fake recipe that turns lead into gold and four-leaf clover.

Of all the plants we grow, garlic seems to have the broadest and deepest magical properties. It not only protects homes and people from evil spirits, but also ensures safe childbirth if hung in the delivery room, gives courage to armies whether eaten or underfoot during battle, ensures general good luck and reveals hidden secrets.

Finally, “eating garlic in May keeps the doctor at bay”, so it’s good for your health, if not your breath.

• Miscellaneous: The most bizarre old wives’ tales link personal emotions and random actions to garden success. One of my favorites is that if you want a bountiful harvest of really hot peppers, plant them when you’re angry. Here are some more, quoted on the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange website: “Stolen plants will grow better.” There are several versions of it. Some say they are just plants, while others say they are just herbs. Sometimes stealing plants brings good luck in general, while others say the plant will grow better. This tradition is still alive today, and some people turn around when giving plants so that the recipient can “steal” them.

“It’s time to plant when you can sit on your garden soil without pants and not be cold.” It’s a funny old piece of folklore but it still rings true. Many vegetable crops need warm soils (around 60 F) to germinate and grow well. Soil thermometers weren’t always as easy to find as they are now, and gardeners have always been determined.

“Never say thank you for a plant.” A common belief in Appalachia is that you should never thank someone for a plant or cutting. Some people say it’s just bad luck and others say the plant will die. Either way, it’s best to just give an answer like “what a gorgeous pepper”. “Whether based on superstition or observation, old wives’ tales help us and our gardens connect to past and future harvests. Happy Halloween!

Note: Za’atar (or Zaatar), both the herb and the condiment, is popular in Algeria, Armenia, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey. Za’atar is a common Middle Eastern spice blend made with ground dried oregano, marjoram, thyme, sumac, cilantro, salt, and toasted sesame seeds. There is evidence that a za’atar plant was known and used in ancient Egypt, although its ancient name has yet to be determined with certainty. The herbal plant is called in English biblical hyssop or Syrian oregano, but the mixture is simply called za’atar. Remains of Thymbra spicata, a species used in modern za’atar preparations, have been found in Tutankhamun’s tomb, and according to Dioscorides this particular species was known to the ancient Egyptians as saem (in this recipe, the blogger used Za’atar Route Spice Blend.)

Warner Bros.’ “Black Adam” opened with around $67 million, according to studio estimates on Sunday, giving Dwayne Johnson his biggest box office weekend as a leading man and launching the DC Comics character qu he spent a decade bringing to the big screen.

“Black Adam” was a $200 million bid to upset the balance of power in a DC Extended Universe dominated by Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman. The $67 million debut fell well below that stratosphere, even with the considerable draw of Johnson acting in his first superhero film. Still, “Black Adam” pulled off the highest opening weekend since “Thor: Love and Thunder” debuted with $143 million in July.

“Black Adam,” which stars Johnson as an ancient Egyptian summoned to modern times, was notably hampered by poor reviews (40% new on Rotten Tomatoes). Moviegoers were kinder, giving the film a B+ CinemaScore. It raised $73 million internationally for a worldwide haul of $140 million.

“Black Adam” took a circuitous route to reach theaters. The character was originally slated to cast as a villain in “Shazam!” in 2019. before executives pivoted to give Black Adam a standalone feature. The goofier “Shazam!”, which cost nearly $100 million to make, opened with $53.5 million in ticket sales and was a smash hit with $366 million worldwide.

The stakes were higher for “Black Adam,” however. When promoting the movie, Johnson didn’t hesitate to follow “Black Adam” with a confrontation with Superman. But whether the receipts from “Black Adam” are enough to justify this remains unclear. Under new management, Warner Bros. is revising its approach to DC Comics adaptations.

Jeff Goldstein, head of distribution for Warner Bros., celebrated the results as a personal best for Johnson outside of “Fast & Furious” movies, and a PG-13 movie with broad appeal that audiences responded to better than movies. reviews. Still, it’s a time of transition for Warner Bros. revamp the DC unit as the studio seeks more Marvel-sized hits. Next on tap is “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” in March.

“It’s about making good movies. It’s about finding the right scripts,” Goldstein said. “Our studio is definitely going through a major overhaul in our direction, style, and approach to production. I think we can crack this nut. We are definitely focusing on that.

“Ticket to Paradise,” the Bali rom-com starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney, proved clever counter-programming. The Universal Pictures release debuted with $16.3 million, well above recent sales of romantic comedies, which have struggled in recent years at the box office. The film is already a hit overseas, where it was released last month, grossing $80.2 million in ticket sales.

Earlier this month, Universal’s R-rated “Bros,” an LGBTQ milestone in the genre, debuted with a disappointing $4.8 million. “Ticket to Paradise” had a notable advantage in its two stars and particularly appealed to older audiences; 64% of ticket buyers were 35 and older, the studio said.

“It’s become an event movie for all audiences this weekend, but especially for older audiences who may struggle to get into theaters,” said Jim Orr, head of distribution at Universal. “We all know this is a demographic that doesn’t exactly miss seeing movies on opening weekend. This gives us great encouragement for the weeks and months to come.

Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for data firm Comscore, noted it was the first weekend with a $65 million opening and more than $100 million in domestic ticket sales since July. Much of that was due to star power, he said, in calling both “Ticket to Paradise” and “Black Adam” with Johnson.

“He was the engine that really drove that box office despite some headwinds in terms of the DC brand and he’s not such a well-known character,” Dergarabedian said. “It’s a really solid starting point for Dwayne Johnson in the DC Comics mix. He’s like a compressor at the box office. Forty percent rotten tomatoes, but people just want to see Dwayne Johnson on the big screen because he is larger than life.

Last week’s top movie, “Halloween Ends,” dropped massively in its second weekend. The Universal horror sequel, which released simultaneously on Peacock, was down 80% with $8 million. Meanwhile, Paramount Pictures’ “Smile” continued to defy the dropouts typical of horror releases. With $8.4 million in its fourth week of release, “Smile” came third and boosted its overall domestic sales to $84.3 million.

As more acclaimed award contenders hit theaters, Searchlight Pictures’ “The Banshees of Inisherin” began its run with one of the best per-theatre averages of the year. The Martin McDonagh drama, starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, debuted with $181,000 in four theaters for a per-theater average of $45,250. For A24, Charlotte Wells’ “Aftersun,” starring Paul Mescal and Frankie Corio as vacationing father and daughter, also debuted solidly in four theaters, averaging $16,589 per theater.

Estimated Friday-Sunday ticket sales at US and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore. Final national figures will be released on Monday.

1. “Black Adam,” $67 million.

2. “Ticket to Paradise,” $16.3 million.

3. “Smile,” $8.4 million

4. “Halloween is over,” $8 million.

5. “Lyle, Lyle Crocodile,” $4.2 million.

6. “The Woman King,” $1.9 million.

7. “Terrify 2,” $1.9 million.

8. “Don’t worry honey,” $880,000.

9. Amsterdam, $811,000.

10. “Triangle of sadness”, $600,000.
