Call for ‘social wealth’ photos

first_imgImage: Chris Kirchhoff,MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For morefree photos, visit the image library.)An organisation that aims to encourage and support indigenous photographers from the developing world is widening its network.Majority World wants to ensure that the lives of those in areas commonly associated with suffering and poverty are captured by photographers who may be able to offer fresh angles, sometimes missing in the images shown on mainstream media.Majority World is a global initiative founded through the collaboration between The Drik Picture Library of Bangladesh and kijijiVision in the UK to champion the cause of indigenous photographers from the developing world and the global South, a region the organisation calls the majority world.The “majority world” covers more than 80% of the global population. Shahidul Alam, who chairs Majority World, has been campaigning since the early 1990s for this phrase to replace other terms such as “developing world” and “third world”, which he feels reinforces negative stereotypes by continuing to associate these countries only with economic poverty, ignoring each country’s cultural and social wealth.The organisation feels that for many years the world’s view of the lives of those in this region has been captured through the lenses of Western photographers, and may not have always reflected the true story behind the images.The aim is to correct that perceived imbalance while, at the same time, providing a platform for indigenous photographers and agencies to gain fair access to global image markets.The organisation is now widening its network. Any photographer, born and living in the majority world, is invited to contact the Majority World and demonstrate their skills.The thinking is that those who live in the areas being photographed and filmed and who are part of the culture and speak the language may be able to offer the world a view on the news that may be missed by others.To get in touch, email Jessica Lim.Courtesy Media Helping Medialast_img read more

The pulse of the kitchen

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Shelly Detwiler, berry farmer and dieticianI live with a dairy farmer and meat and milk are usually what’s for dinner at our house. However, I think for one meal a week, or better yet a serving daily, all us carnivores can think outside the box and enjoy beans and legumes, or pulses as they are called these days. Pulses are the edible seeds grown in pods that are harvested dry. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) recognizes 11 types of pulses: dry beans, dry broad beans, dry peas, chickpeas, cow peas, pigeon peas, lentils, Bambara beans, vetches, lupins and pulses nes (which is everything not in a before mentioned group).Experts will say they are environmentally friendly and sustainable. Those hot trendy terms are not why I like to recommend them. Pulses are low fat and high in fiber with plenty of protein. Research has shown that eating a half-cup to three-quarters of a cup of pulses per day can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol. This is beneficial in helping reduce your heart disease risk factors. As Paul and I age, these health benefits are the reason I am going to start adding some pulses into our daily meals.Pulses are easy to cook and prepare in any kitchen. We primarily used canned beans. We’ve tried many of the black, cannelloni, kidney, soybean, edamame, pinto, navy and lentils. This March for National Nutrition month, I may take a pulse food adventure and check out the availability and recipes of those seldom seen pulses in my kitchen. Not sure what flavors, textures and tastes I’ll discover but that’s why it’s an adventure. Join me on a foodie adventure outside your box this March and add some heart healthy pulses to your meals. The possibilities are endless!Eat well and healthy,Shelly Frijoles Negros…Black Beans (Pulses.org) 16 oz dried black beans (3-4 cans)2 cups chicken or beef stock1 green or red bell pepper, chopped3 tbsp vegetable oil1 large onion, chopped4 garlic cloves, minced2 tbsp molasses (or 3 tbsp dark brown sugar)1 tbsp cuminWorcestershire sauce4 slices baconsalt and pepper to taste  Rinse beans and let them soak overnight in water.

Bring beans to a simmer and cook over low heat until tender.Cook bacon in a heavy skillet until crispy. Remove bacon from skillet and add the onion and garlic to the bacon fat. Cook over low heat until soft and translucent. Add the cumin and brown sugar to the onions and continue to cook until browned and soft. Once beans are tender, remove 2 cups of the cooked beans and process in a blender with the onion mixture. Add the blended beans and onion to the rest of the cooked beans. Season with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce to taste. Continue to cook beans until very tender. Add water if necessary, until desired texture is achieved. Crispy Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas itdoesnttastelikechicken.com 19oz can chickpeas, drained & rinsed1 tablespoon olive oil3/4 teaspoon chili powder1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves1/2 teaspoon salt  Preheat your oven to 375F (190C).Spread the chickpeas in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Toss well to coat the chickpeas evenly. Spread the seasoned chickpeas back onto the baking sheet and return to the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes until they are golden and crispy. Remove from the oven and let cool a bit before enjoying. You can snack on them still warm, or completely cooled. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for about a week.

With more than 10% of the Web powered by WordPress – according to founding developer Matt Mullenweg – it has become increasingly important for the company to support more interfaces and today it has done just that with iPad-optimized themes.The company announced today that an iPad-optimized view would be immediately available, bringing “swiping, rotation, and many other features of the iPad” to all 18 million blogs on WordPress.com.When Mullenweg spoke at this year’s SXSW, he described WordPress as increasingly becoming a platform. Not only is WordPress used as a blogging platform, but as a content management system. WordPress.com and WordPress.org handle more than 520 million unique visitors per month, said Mullenweg. Now, many of those blogs will be more accessible to iPad users.According to the announcement, the iPad version of WordPress.com blogs will be powered by HTML5 and OnSwipe, bringing an “app-like” functionality to iPad users. Already, about 750,000 daily pageviews come from iPad users and the company says that “with the launch of Apple’s iPad we have seen the future of computing and it is touch.”The addition of an iPad-optimized view will allow blog owners to customize background images, logos, fonts and skins for iPad visitors, as well as disable or enable the iPad view entirely. For those who run WordPress on their own server, the iPad view is available as a separate plug-in.

Pay ₹70 lakh to legal wife of live-in partner, Manipur court orders woman

first_imgA court in Manipur capital Imphal has ordered a woman to pay ₹70 lakh as compensation to the legal wife of a man with whom she has been living.The court of the Civil Judge (Senior Division) in Imphal East district had on September 13 heard the case of Ranjita Achom, and her three children against her husband Konsam Shyamsunder Singh – an IAS officer – and his partner Yambem Puni.Judge Y. Somorjit Singh ordered the compensation under tort law on October 18 in three parts – ₹10 lakh as special damages for causing loss of consortium, nervous shock and mental distress to Dr. Achom from June 2016; ₹10 lakh for lowering her reputation in the eyes of society; and ₹50 lakh as “punitive or exemplary damages”.A tort is a civil wrong that makes a claimant suffer loss or harm, resulting in legal liability for the person who commits the tortious act. It can include the intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, financial losses, injuries and invasion of privacy.Dr. Achom, 41, had appealed to the court against “intentional tort” by 33-year-old Ms. Puni for maintaining an “illicit” relationship with her lawful husband, Dr. Singh, thereby causing “untold distress”.Dr. Achom is an assistant professor at Imphal’s Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) while her 40-year-old husband is an administrative officer in the Manipur government. They got married in 2009.The court order describes Ms. Puni as a renowned model serving as Panchayat Secretary in the Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Department. It noted that Mr. Singh was extending “warmest welcome, reception, hospitality, companion, friendship and personal service” to Ms. Puni since 2016 despite the latter knowing that he was the JNIMS doctor’s legal husband and a father of three children.Ms. Puni submitted through her counsel that she is Dr. Singh’s second wife. But the court observed that she “cannot be given the status of second wife” as per the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955.Dr. Achom’s counsel argued that Ms. Puni “intentionally” interfered with her settled family, causing “consortium, defamation and mental and nervous shock”. The complaint also said Dr. Achom underwent psychiatric treatment after the status of “wife of a broken family” greatly affected her reputation.While Dr. Singh admitted to having an “illicit relationship” with Ms. Puni, the court found that she “knowingly and voluntarily” started the live-in relationship with the IAS officer by considering herself as his second wife after the traditional Loukhatpa (acceptance ceremony) in 2016.Dr. Achom had sought damages of ₹10 crore. Observing that there was no specific formula in India to compute the quantum of compensation with regard to intentional torts concerning extra-marital or live-in relationship, Judge Somorjit Singh directed Ms. Puni to pay ₹70 lakh to the aggrieved legal wife.last_img read more

More Zika for Grand Turk

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppGrand Turk, TCI, January 9, 2017 –  Grand Turk sees cases of Zika virus surge as the Ministry of Health gives an update on recorded cases of the mosquito borne, sexually transmitted disease.Just days into the New Year, the public learned that there are eight new cases of Zika for the TCI, bringing the national total of on record cases to 24.   Seven of those eight cases were found in Grand Turk; the Capital and the island which hosts major cruise liners and thousands of tourists per day.  It is believed the rainy season is responsible in part for the new cases from October 14 through December 7, 2016.The ‘tip of the iceberg effect’ must be ever mindful, as Zika has the uniqueness of being asymptomatic, meaning some people do not even know that they have it, therefore the true number of cases will likely never be known in any society.Go to MagneticMediaTV.com for the tips and advice from the Ministry of Health on how to be Zika free.

Did Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora ignore each other at Zee Cine

first_imgMalaika Arora, Arbaaz Khan, Giorgia AndrianiVarinder ChawlaEx-couple Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora have been in the news ever since the two announced their separation in 2016. They were granted divorce in May 2017. The two have now moved on in their respectives lives and found solace in their new partners’ arms. While Arbaaz is dating Italian model Giorgia Andriani, Malaika is seeing Arjun Kapoor. Both Arbaaz and Malaika have spoken about their bitter separation and how they couldn’t bare with each other anymore. But are they still cordial with each other?A lot of things happen when a slew of Bollywood stars come under the same roof. And the same happened when Arbaaz and Malaika were seen walking the Zee Cine Awards 2019 red carpet in Mumbai, on Tuesday (March 19). All eyes were on Arbaaz and Malaika as soon as they entered into the open air auditorium.Malaika was the first one to arrive at the venue and was seen posing on the red carpet and interacting with the media. She was wearing a dramatic red thigh-high slit silk gown and needless to say that the Bollywood diva was looking turned many heads with her mesmerising look. Arbaaz and Giorgia, on the other hand, arrived on the red carpet after Malaika left the spot. The two walked hand-in-hand and posed for some photographs on the red carpet.However, conflicting reports have been making the rounds about Arbaaz and Malaika’s chemistry at the award function. A report in Dainik Jagran says that Arbaaz and Malaika both had come face-to-face with each other and even had an eye contact but paid no heed to each other.Meanwhile, a report in Spotboye says that though Arbaaz and Malaika arrived one after another, Malaika greeted Arbaaz with a hug when the latter walked in with his girlfriend Giorgia at the event coordinating in black and white.International Business Times India couldn’t independently verify these reports.A few days ago, Malaika had opened up about her divorce with Arbaaz Khan and said that she was glad that she took the decision on her own. Arbaaz too made it clear that his relationship with his 16-year-old son Arhaan is beautiful, it looks like his equation with Malaika has gone sour. And the reason could be none other than her relationship with Arjun Kapoor.last_img read more
