Abhisarika An expression of love and romance

first_imgIt is often said that works of art have a story behind, and artists have the ability to present these narratives using a series of images that represent moments in a story, or by selecting a central moment that stands for the whole story.One such artist Sukanta Das has weaved a love story about a beloved Abhisarika (one who moves) to convey her secret meetings with her lover, setting aside her modesty. She is depicted at the door of his house and on his way to the tryst, defying all kinds of difficulties like storms, snakes and dangers of the forest. In art, Abhisarika is portrayed often in hurry towards his destination. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe story will be told through an exhibition ‘Abhisarika’ in the fourth hall of the Lalit Kala Akademi from April 20–26. The inauguration on April 20 will see the presence of eminent artists Sudip Roy, Asit Patnaik, Dharmendra Rathore, and Shampa Sirkar Das, besides eminent sculptor Tapas Sarkar. Renowned photographer Aninda Adhikary, who has conceived and presented the exhibition, says Sukanta has brought realism back to art at a time when many artists are moving to distortions of figures and abstraction. Sukanta achieves an enigmatic quality by using mixed colours to achieve the exact quality of drapery to depict the tone of a woman’s skin, besides painting the emotions of humanity. Sukanta Das’ works have adorned the walls of numerous corporate and private collectors.last_img read more

Yunus Youth Morocco Inspires Youth for Social Entrepreneurship

By Ismail ElouafiFez – Yunus & Youth Morocco has organized its second social entrepreneurship event in Fez, on August 22, 2014. This event is part of a national tour being held in the largest cities in the Kingdom of Morocco, including Casablanca and Tangier. The purpose of these events is to make young people aware of the importance of social entrepreneurship as a key to success for the social development of their community. Yunus & Youth is a global movement inspiring young people to join, explore and pursue the unconventional paths of social businesses by understanding the business environment in Morocco. Through its program, including the national tour, trainings and online classes, the Yunus & Youth Morocco has shown its potential to reach young social entrepreneurs, leading their own social enterprises and to help them improve their capacity, ability and situations.Sara Chellaoui, the Hub coordinator of Morocco, in an interview with Morocco World News, has insisted on the importance of social entrepreneurship as the main pillar to assist in the development of our country.She said: “Social entrepreneurship is very important and needed in Morocco, we have many social challenges that we can tackle effectively using this new concept of business.”  Her statement has made it clear that Yunus & Youth is envisioning a global network of young people implementing sustainable, social business solutions to fight the world’s most pressing social issues.Internationally, Mrs. Chellaoui’s organization offers fellowship programs of six months to encourage and monitor young entrepreneurs to build their own projects effectively.  From 90 applications, only 17 young entrepreneurs have been offered this fellowship.  These projects will receive instruction and assistance from experts and specially trained mentors from Yunus & Youth.During the workshop in Fez, Mrs. Chellaoui and the participants have agreed on the key points that are to change the mindset of Moroccans about the concept of social entrepreneurship and help to build a strong network. “For [the] Moroccan chapter, the challenge so far is to build a solid network of supporters around Yunus and Youth,” said Mrs. Chellaoui.Judging by the grand efforts made by the participants of this program, the future social entrepreneurship looks extremely promising. However, more and more encouragement and support are required to transform Moroccan society from a passive consumption mode to an active one.  Morocco of 2014, needs this kind of enterprise to bolster and lead itself toward the ultimate phase of development. read more

UN labour organization reviews migration in 93 countries for new action

Working to develop a new programme of action on worldwide migration, the United Nations International Labour Organization (ILO) today released an up-to-date report on related trends in 93 of its member states. ILO Migration Survey 2003: Country Summaries says the number of migrants seeking work and security in foreign countries is expected to increase rapidly in the coming decades. Collectively, these people would comprise the world’s fifth most populous country if they were grouped in a single political entity. “In practically every region, the rising mobility of people in search of decent work and human security has been commanding the attention of policy makers,” says Manolo Abella, Chief of the ILO’s International Migration Programme. “Migration is driven by differences and imbalances among countries and these differences have grown and not shrunk with globalization.” The report will be the basis for a general discussion on migration during the 92nd International Labour Conference which runs through 17 June in Geneva. It includes the latest information on migration trends, conditions, law and practice, its impact on recipient and donor countries while describing national experiences with regulating both migration and migrant employment. The annual ILO conference debates global social and labour issues, oversees compliance with international labour standards and establishes the agency’s budget. read more

Illegal drug use slows but treatment policies still need boost UN report

According to the World Drug Report 2004, launched today by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), some 185 million people – less than one out of 30 adults or 3 per cent of the world population aged 15 to 64 – have used illegal drugs in the past year. The study also found that the process of extracting cocaine from coca leaves has declined by 30 per cent over the past four years.Despite these encouraging results, “current levels of illicit drug use, together with the health consequences and criminal activities associated with it, are clearly unacceptable,” UNODC chief Antonio Maria Costa said at a press conference in Moscow. He called for stronger prevention and treatment policies in response.By far the most widely abused substance is cannabis, used at least once year by more than 150 million people. The report calls the cannabis market “buoyant” and points to increasing consumption in South America as well as expanding markets in Eastern Europe and Africa.Cannabis use is followed by amphetamine-type stimulants, with 38 million users, 8 million of which use ecstasy. Smaller numbers of people abuse cocaine (13 million) or opiates such as heroin, morphine and opium (15 million).In terms of health, opiates rank as the most serious problem, accounting for the majority of people seeking drug treatment in Asia and Europe. In South-East Asia, methamphetamines have become the main problem drug, UNODC said. Cocaine still comes first on the American continent as a whole, but in the United States, cocaine abuse among students has been declining.The report was launched in conjunction with the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, which is observed each year on 26 June to commemorate the signature of the declaration adopted at the International Conference against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in 1987.As another part of the Day’s observance, UNODC also announced a yearlong campaign to promote the importance and effectiveness of drug treatment to drug-dependent individuals, as well as to the general public.With the theme “Drugs: treatment works,” the campaign aims to diminish the stigma attached to drug users by illustrating the possibilities for a positive future, using the stories of individuals who have successfully undergone treatment and are engaged in productive lives. read more

Canadian dollar higher amid positive Chinese eurozone economic data

TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed higher Thursday amid positive economic news from Europe and China and rising commodity prices.The loonie gained 0.08 of a cent to 89.02 cents US.Financial information company Markit said its composite purchasing managers’ index for the eurozone — a gauge of business activity across the manufacturing and services sectors — rose to 52.2 points in October from 52.0 in September. Anything above 50 indicates expansion.Also, HSBC’s preliminary version of an index based on a survey of Chinese factory purchasing managers rose to 50.4 from 50.2 in September. HSBC’s chief China economist, Hongbin Qu, said manufacturing likely stabilized in October but the world’s No. 2 economy continues to show signs of “insufficient” demand.Financial markets have been volatile over the last month amid worries that the eurozone could slip back into recession and that China’s economy was weakening.The loonie had slipped 0.12 of a cent Wednesday as the Bank of Canada left its key rate unchanged at one per cent.Prices were mixed on commodity markets with December crude ahead $1.57 to US$82.09 a barrel after data showing U.S. inventories much higher than expected last week and a higher U.S. currency had pushed oil prices to a two-year low.December copper gained two cents to US$3.04 a pound while December gold bullion fell $16.40 to US$1,229.10 an ounce.

Middle aged adults drinking too many sugary drinks twice as likely to

first_imgMiddle aged adults who drink too many sugary drinks are twice as likely to die from heart disease, new research has shown.Over a period of six years, participants in the study over the age of 45 who drank at least 24 ounces of sugary beverage daily were twice as likely to die from heart disease as those consuming less than one ounce.Scientists also found an increased risk of death from all causes among top consumers of sugary drinks.But there was no link between eating sugary foods and premature death. This may be related to the different ways sugary drinks and foods are processed by the body, said the researchers.Previous studies have shown a link between added sugar and both obesity and chronic disease, but its impact on death rates has not been clear.Lead researcher Dr Jean Welsh, from Emory University in Atlanta, US, said: “There were two parts of this question we wanted to understand. Do added sugars increase risk of death from heart disease or other causes, and, if so, is there a difference in risk between sugar-sweetened beverages and sugary foods? “We believe this study adds strong data to what already exists highlighting the importance of minimising sugary beverages in our diet.”The team drew on data from almost 18,000 participants in the Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (Regards) study, a long-running US health and lifestyle investigation.A questionnaire was used to estimate sugary food and beverage consumption. Sugary beverages included sodas and fruit drinks while desserts and breakfast cereals were among the sugar-sweetened foods.Information from death records was compared with people’s sugar consumption habits while they were alive.The findings were presented at the American Heart Association’s Epidemiology and Prevention/Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health Scientific Sessions meeting in New Orleans.

Gazalinked Egypt attack hurts Hamas border bid

first_img Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Hamas, itself a fundamentalist Islamic militant group, appears to be losing control over some of the Islamist militants operating from its territory.In recent years, followers of a fundamentalist stream of Islam, known as Salafis, have formed a number of cells in Gaza, some of them inspired by al-Qaida, but without central organization. They have claimed responsibility for several attacks on Israel.A senior Hamas official on Monday described the Salafi cells as “ticking bombs that threaten not only the Gaza government.” He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss intelligence assessments with reporters. Hamas has arrested suspected Salafis in the past, even clashing with them in shootouts on some occasions.A former Israeli deputy military chief, Maj. Gen. Dan Harel, did not expect Hamas to go after militant groups. “They condemn it, but they don’t do enough to control those extremist movements and terror organizations,” he said.___Associated Press writer Mohammed Daraghmeh in Ramallah contributed reporting.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) In a meeting with Hamas officials from Gaza last month, Morsi appeared sympathetic to their demands to lift restrictions on travel out of Gaza, though he was noncommittal about opening the border to trade as well.In return, Morsi asked Hamas to crack down on militants moving in and out of Gaza through the tunnels, according to an official close to the talks who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the content of closed-door discussions with reporters.Morsi told Hamas his leadership would be tested by how he deals with Islamic militants in Sinai and asked Hamas to help make his first term a success, the official said.The bloody attack on the border that left 16 Egyptian soldiers dead threw the implied agreements into disarray. It also left Hamas in a damage-control mode, with few options beyond pleading for a fair inquiry.The Hamas government condemned the attack as an “awful crime” and promised to help Egypt find the culprits, but also denied Gaza militants were involved. “We reject using the name of Gaza (in the context of the attack) without investigation and without finding out who is standing behind it,” said Deputy Prime Minister Mohammed Awad. Top Stories Associated PressGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) – The weekend’s deadly attack on the Egypt-Israel border by Islamic militants with purported ties to Gaza spells trouble for the territory’s Hamas rulers.Hamas had lobbied Egypt’s new president, who like the group has roots in the region-wide Muslim Brotherhood, to end Gaza’s 5-year-long border blockade by throwing open a shared border crossing that is the territory’s only gate to the world. More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Check your body, save your life Instead, one of the first steps President Mohammed Morsi took after Sunday’s attack was to slam the Gaza border crossing shut indefinitely.Egypt’s military said the attackers had the help of Palestinian militants, saying “elements from the Gaza Strip” aided them by shelling the Egyptian-Israeli border crossing with mortars as the attack was taking place.An Egyptian government official charged anonymously that at least some of the attackers came from Gaza, infiltrating through smuggling tunnels under the border.Hundreds of tunnels run under the 15-kilometer (9-mile) Gaza-Egypt border, dug over the years to evade border restrictions and move contraband, including weapons and militants.Hamas announced it closed the tunnels temporarily following the attack that left 16 Egyptian border troops dead. Egypt indicated it would crack down from its side after mostly ignoring the underground passages for years.Morsi pledged that now, Egypt’s military will go after the militants in the Sinai, a move that could reinforce Gaza’s isolation.After Morsi’s election victory earlier this summer, Hamas had been hopeful that the Gaza border blockade _ imposed by Israel and Egypt after Hamas overran the territory in 2007 _ was coming to an end. Comments   Share   A senior Egyptian official alleged that Hamas has failed to prevent militants from slipping in and out of the Sinai desert through the tunnels. “After Egyptian blood was spilled, we will not accept words of condemnation, denials or failing to take responsibility,” the official said of Hamas, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss internal government deliberations with reporters.In a first sign of tension between Morsi’s’ government and Hamas, the movement’s deputy leader, Moussa Abu Marzouk, wrote on his Facebook page that closing the Rafah crossing amounted to collective punishment.Since taking office, Morsi has been careful to avoid the impression that he puts the interests of fellow Islamists, including Hamas, above those of Egypt. After Sunday’s attack, he is under even greater pressure to clamp down on Islamic militants seen as a threat to his country’s national interests.“Hamas will be the first to pay the price of this attack, and I think the ones who carried it out meant to embarrass Hamas,” said Abdel Majed Swailem, a West Bank analyst. “Egypt is going to be very tough on the borders and that will harm Hamas’ standing. The first target for Egypt now will be the tunnels, the main artery for Hamas.” Sponsored Stories last_img read more
