Northern BC First Nation clan says ancient tools found at pipeline work

first_imgIn a statement, Unist’ot’en clan spokeswoman Freda Huson says their members have been combing the company’s construction site for a proposed man camp since heavy machinery turned up the forest floor.The statement says supporters recovered two stone tools on Wednesday and archeologists from the Smithsonian Institute estimate one dates back up to 3500 years.It says additional stone tools were observed and recorded but the scale and scope of the work requires assistance from professional archeologists.In an open letter with Huson, archeologists Chelsey Armstrong of the Smithsonian Institution and Ginevra Toniello of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation call for a review of the archeological overview assessment and all archeological permits granted to the company in the territory.The newly found artifacts reveal that archeological heritage is clearly present and that any assessment should be conducted in consultation with the clan, says the letter addressed to the archeology branch of the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.The Coastal GasLink pipeline would transport natural gas from northeastern British Columbia to LNG Canada’s export terminal in Kitimat on the coast. HOUSTON, B.C. – Coastal GasLink says it has suspended pipeline work south of Houston, B.C., while claims of the discovery of Indigenous artifacts on the site are investigated.The company says it has cordoned off the area, requested that a qualified archeologist visit the site and the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission will conduct another site visit to investigate the claims.It says an archeological impact assessment for the site was approved in 2016, but the company and its archeologists were not able to conduct on-site fieldwork during the regulatory and permitting process due to road access issues. In January, the area was the site of a blockade against the pipeline where police moved in and arrested 14 people.The company says it has approval to build the pipeline from First Nations along the pipeline, but some Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs say they haven’t given their consent.last_img read more

Archived records of ships landing lists could provide vital evidence in support

The claims of Windrush migrants struggling to prove their right to remain in Britain have been backed by tens of thousands of arrival records stored in the National Archives, it has emerged.Ledgers recording the details of all passengers arriving at British ports from the late 19th century until 1960 are now known to include more than 85,000 from Caribbean countries such as Jamaica.The material – which includes personal details of those who arrived in the UK on the Empire Windrush and other ships from 1948 – could provide vital evidence for those who have struggled to claim UK citizenship in the face of Home Office obstruction.The Home Office destroyed its archive of landing cards in 2010, in a move widely condemned as “historical vandalism” and has since turned down applications for citizenship from hundreds of post war migrants from former British colonies.But conformation by the National Archives that it holds details compiled by the Board of Trade of arrivals into the UK, including name, birth date, and journey taken, will add to the weight of evidence being presented by Windrush migrants for their right to remain. He told the Financial Times: “That would seem like quite good evidence.”Up to 50,000 British residents of Caribbean origin are known to have been left struggling to obtain citizenship rights – with some being refused healthcare or not being allowed back into the UK after family visits – by Home Office officials demanding they prove their right to remain in the UK.Satbir Singh, chief executive of the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, said the Home Office should accept the National Archives arrivals documents as “conclusive proof” for those who came before 1960.But he added that concerns remained for anyone who came here after that date.The Home Office said the National Archive records are different to those destroyed in 2010 and that incoming passengers lists were not of themselves proof of long term residency. Ian Robinson, of law firm Fragomen UK, said he would use the files when representing applicants who arrived in Britain before 1960. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

5000YearOld Chinese Beer Had This Special Ingredient

first_img Fiber-Based Six-Pack Can Rings Offer Eco-Friendly Alternative to PlasticEven More Kellogg’s Cereal Gets Re-Born as Craft Beer Stay on target If you’re a big beer drinker, you might be interested in knowing what made to beers of yesteryear tick, or at the very least what went into their creation. As it turns out, a Chinese recipe for beer that’s 5,000 years old has been pieced together from prehistoric pots, and they include a special ingredient: barley.After scientists ran several tests on the ancient pottery and other items found at the Mijiaya archaeological site in the Chinese province of Shaanxi. They came back with traces of oxalate. This is a byproduct that creates a special scale known colloquially as “beerstone” that forms on the equipment used to brew beer. There were also different residues from plants like barley.It’s interesting news because researchers weren’t exactly clear on when beer started being made in China, and the earliest known usage of using barley is predated by about 1,000 years. The assumption is, following those ideas, that barley could have been utilized to make beer long before China took the grain and used it as an important part of the citizens’ diets. You’ve gotta consider that barley is still widely used today as well.Of course, barley was already in wide rotation across the rest of the world, such as in ancient Egypt, and it’s possible the widespread use could have trickled into China since it was such an important part of brewing beer and a new crop at that.Scientists have found success when it comes to reconstructing the old recipe, which is ridiculously impressive given how far back it was created. The process and the idea that things could have worked out like this is massively interesting. And it seems like the ancient Chinese civilizations really dug their beer. You probably have something in common with them.last_img read more

Paralysis of the Ministries

first_imgBy Yankuba JallowThe day for end term of presidency for the incumbent is drawing near as the clock is ticking and some of his cabinet ministers are resigning thereafter. This reporter went to some of the ministries which include Ministry of the Interior, Finance, Trade, Fisheries, Justice and Foreign Affairs. Read to find out the observations and the findings.At the Ministry of the Interior, an officer at the ministry who preferred  anonymity told this reporter that the Minister was not at work yesterday but has been coming to work in previous days.At the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs, the security officer at the gate said the newly appointed Minister Mr. Roberts was at work but had left for home.Mr. Abdou Jobe, the Minister for Trade, Industry, Regional Integration and Employment, has left the jurisdiction as confirmed by the security man there. The reporter reached there around 2 pm and was told that most if not all of the workers have gone home. He showed the Minister’s car parked with all the doors closed. He said they are yet to announce a new Minister.It is at the Ministry of Justice where drama unfolded as it is the only place this reporter visited and discovered there was no one in the building not even a security agent. The reporter entered the building to see if there will be a possibility to meet at least a person working there but to his surprise, no one was seen in the whole building.Visiting the Foreign Affairs Ministry, It was confirmed by a staff of the said ministry that the minister, Neneh Macdoull Gaye, has resigned and as at now no one has been assigned to replace her.The Ministers of Education, both Higher and Basic, are confirmed to be working and have not resigned. The Minister of Basic Education, Madam Fatou Lamin Faye, is confirmed to be handling the position of Tourism alongside her Education Ministry.last_img read more

Court subpoenas emails of Pebble opponents

first_imgThe Pebble mine is back in the news this week. Dozens of Pebble opponents were issued subpoenas as part of a lawsuit in federal court. That lawsuit alleges EPA was coordinating improperly with some of the mine’s opponents, and is now in the discovery phase.Download AudioPebble lawyers want to talk with and obtain documents from those who’ve worked alongside or supported EPA’s efforts. Spokesman Mike Heatwole says that will fill in blanks in the paper trail Pebble has been trying to put together:“The EPA has not been very forthcoming in all of the Freedom of Information Act requests we have made over the course of several years. And really all we have right now is a very incomplete picture. What we’ve seen so far has caused us to have a lot of questions about what was really going on behind the scenes of the EPA.”On the receiving end of the subpoena requests are a mix of individuals and groups who’ve been fighting against Pebble’s development. While the subpoenas were not entirely unexpected, some say it’s had a chilling effect; some of Pebble’s most outspoken critics are speaking only through an attorney this week. That attorney is Vicki Clark with Trustees for Alaska, an environmental law firm which was itself served a subpoena:“Their discovery requests and the subpoenas are extremely broad and excessive. They’re not just about communications with EPA but they are about communication between private parties just about anything to do with Pebble and in some respects mining in general in Alaska. So this is a pretty desperate attempt by Pebble to have a chilling affect on the opposition to the project.”Pebble says one of the key figures who knows what was happening inside the agency for several important years is former EPA employee Phillip North. He left the country after retiring two years ago, and the agency claims most of his government emails were lost when his hard drive crashed. A federal judge has ordered North to appear in Anchorage for deposition next month.In related news, A report issued today [Tuesday] by the Cohen Group says the EPA has acted unfairly in its efforts to put preemptive restrictions in place to block the development of the Pebble Mine. The Cohen Group, founded by former US Senator and Clinton Defense Secretary William Cohen, was hired last March by Pebble to independently review the agency’s actions.last_img read more

Researchers perform first direct measurement of Van der Waals force

first_img Citation: Researchers perform first direct measurement of Van der Waals force (2013, July 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from © 2013 More information: Direct Measurement of the van der Waals Interaction between Two Rydberg Atoms, Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 263201 (2013) report the direct measurement of the van der Waals interaction between two isolated, single Rydberg atoms separated by a controlled distance of a few micrometers. Working in a regime where the single-atom Rabi frequency for excitation to the Rydberg state is comparable to the interaction, we observe partial Rydberg blockade, whereby the time-dependent populations of the various two-atom states exhibit coherent oscillations with several frequencies. Quantitative comparison of the data with a simple model based on the optical Bloch equations allows us to extract the van der Waals energy, and observe its characteristic C6/R6 dependence. The measured C6 coefficients agree well with ab initio calculations, and we observe their dramatic increase with the principal quantum number n of the Rydberg state. ( —Researchers working at the French National Center for Scientific Research have for the first time, directly measured the Van der Waals force between two atoms. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the team describes how they used lasers to hold two atoms steady and a third laser to measure the Van der Waals force between them. Explore further The weak force between atoms, named after its discoverer Johannes Diderik van der Waals is evident in the behavior of many materials—it’s what keeps most gas molecules together. Scientists have also discovered that it’s also what allows a gecko’s toes to stick to a smooth wall. But, because the weak force is only apparent when atoms are very close together, scientists have until now been unable to measure it directly.In this new effort, the research team chose to use Rydberg atoms as part of their study. Such atoms are large and one of their electrons has a highly charged state. This makes them a good candidate for attempting to measure the Van der Waals force—they have more force between them than most other atom pairs and because of that can be measured at longer distances.They started by firing a pair of lasers at twin Rydberg atoms. Doing so held them steady. Next, they fired a third laser at the two atoms causing them to oscillate at a desired frequency. By measuring the oscillations, the researchers were able to work out mathematically the Van der Waals force between them. More specifically, the researchers measured oscillations between ground and excited states, noting that the distance between the two atoms at the time of measurement was key—too close and the excitation of one of the atoms overwhelmed the other—too far and the force between the atoms became too weak to measure. Using the third laser as optic tweezers allowed for adjusting the distance between the two atoms, which ultimately led to just the right distance for measurement.The team also noted that the technique used for measuring the Van der Waals force also led to the oscillating atoms evolving to a fully coherent state. This means the technique could be used to create quantum logic gates, which might prove useful in creating a quantum computer.center_img First single-molecule measurement of Van Der Waals interactions at metal-organic interface Journal information: Physical Review Letters Mapping out the van der Waals interaction between two atoms. (a) In the experiment of Béguin et al. two atoms are trapped in the foci of two laser beams separated by a distance R. (b) Depending on R, the excitation laser field can couple the ground state |gg of the atomic pair to states containing one atom in the Rydberg state (|gr and |rg, respectively), or to a state with both atoms populating the Rydberg state |rr. The energy of the latter state is strongly shifted because of the van der Waals interaction UvdW between the atoms (see level diagram in the upper left), resulting in a distance-dependent coherent excitation dynamics of the atomic pair system. (c) By analyzing the time evolution of the atom-pair state, Béguin et al. deduce the van der Waals energy shift as a function of interatomic distance for different Rydberg states.

This CloudBased Storage Service Offers Deep Features for Businesses

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. min read Enroll Now for Free Small businesses have no shortage of consumer-based options when it comes to online data and file storage. But as compelling as popular services such as Dropbox, and Google Docs might be, they can present challenges for businesses. Files stored in the cloud can be tricky to sync with content stored locally on personal computers, as access to these files can be complicated to manage and revisions difficult to track.Mountain View, Calif.-based Egnyte has rolled out significant upgrades to its online document management tool, called HybridCloud, which attempts to address these online storage issues for businesses. Its new tool lets groups store, share and edit documents online, manage access to those documents and sync their online content with files stored on PCs.Users can choose to access data either from their local computer or in the cloud. This means remote workers can get to files out of the office over the Web, and those in the office can access files on local PCs, so they don’t sacrifice speed.center_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now December 16, 2011 Accounts start at about $25 per month for five users who get access to Egnyte’s full suite of services, as well as 100 standard users — including business partners, clients and others who may be given permission to access and edit specific files and folders. The basic account includes 150 GB of storage.Related: Three Issues to Consider Before Moving to the CloudWe had access to a demo of the new HybridCloud. Here’s a look at what we found and what it means for business users.What’s worth storing: Egnyte is as easy to use as a basic consumer storage option like Dropbox, but it offers features such as Google Docs integration, built-in software for transferring large files and the ability to read your online Egnyte account as if it were a drive on your PC.Most impressive is the level of control Egnyte gives business owners. Individuals or groups can set up complex folder and file permissions. Users can manage how many file versions are stored — from just one to every time someone makes an edit — or how long deleted documents are kept in a backup trash folder. Audit reports let admins see who has modified what and when. These features make HybridCloud relatively unique among other online document management tools, including Zoho and ThinkFree.What’s not: For our digital content business, we decided that while we liked what Egnyte offers, it was too daunting a prospect to migrate our work flow to the tool. We’ve been comfortable using Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365. For our purposes, the time needed migrate all our data would probably not be worth the gain in productivity that Egnyte offered. Other companies in similar situations might feel the same way.Related: How Many Bytes Do You Need for Your Data-Storage Buck?Bottom line: For new businesses considering a document storage solution, Egnyte is worth a serious look. For firms that require extensive record keeping, such as health care and finance, the tool can also be useful.But the average business might find Egnyte to be overkill. Potentially lower cost tools including Google Apps can be more than enough.last_img read more

Ghostery open source and new business model

first_imgGhostery: open source and new business model by Martin Brinkmann on March 09, 2018 in Internet – 23 commentsThe source code of the privacy extension Ghostery for the web browsers Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Edge, has been published on GitHub by the development company.Ghostery is a very popular browser extension. On Firefox, it is one of seven extensions with more than 1 million users; and on Chrome, it has more than 2.8 million active users.The extension has not been without controversy in the past. While the extension did what it was supposed to do — protect user privacy while running — it was the underlying revenue scheme of the company that met criticism.Ghostery collected Ghost Rank data, anonymized the data and put it up for sale. A lack of transparency made it look as if Ghostery was playing a double role by promising users privacy while selling data to advertising companies at the same time.The practice ended with the acquisition of Ghostery by Cliqz in February 2017. Cliqz is majority-owned by Hubert Burda Media. Mozilla, maker of Firefox, made a strategic investment in Cliqz in 2016.Mozilla faced criticism in the past as well over its relationship with Cliqz and experiments it ran. This culminated in Mozilla running an experiment on 1% of the Firefox population of Germany that saw Cliqz activated automatically in the browser. Cliqz took over the browser’s address bar and sent anything entered into the address bar to its servers to power its functionality.Open Source GhosteryReleasing code as open source improves transparency but it also invites others to take part in the development. Ghostery’s move makes sense from a business point of view as the code of the extension is now in the open so that anyone may check it for privacy issues.Interested users can check out the code on GitHub. It needs to be noted that Ghostery released the code for its browser extensions only and not for the mobile applications.Business Model changesGhostery needs to generate revenue as a company. Ghostery plans to generate revenue in two ways in the future according to a report on Wired:Ghostery Insights — a new paid premium product for researchers, journalists and others interested in the “webpage and tracker ecosystem”.Ghostery Rewards — an opt-in system to highlight relevant deals to users based on browsing activity.It is unclear yet how Ghostery Insights will be different from the previous model. Ghostery plans to launch the feature later this year.Ghostery Rewards seems more straightforward and it it is opt-in, should not be of much concern to users who don’t find it particularly useful.Users should not confuse Rewards with the sneaked in promotional message system of 2015 which was opt-out but limited to Ghostery-related messages.Closing WordsIt remains to be seen how well the changes are received by the userbase. The release of the extension as open source is a step in the right direction and that Ghostery Rewards will be opt-in is good to know as well.There is some uncertainty surrounding Ghostery Insights though. How and what data is collected, and what is shared with paying customers?Now You: Do you use privacy extensions? What’s your take on the development?SummaryArticle NameGhostery: open source and new business modelDescriptionThe source code of the privacy extension Ghostery for the web browsers Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Edge, has been published on GitHub by the development company.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Animal studies revealed that amifostine is very effective in protecting against genomic instability and associated long-term genomic damages resulting from radiation exposure, such as from CT scans and other diagnostic radiology and radiation oncology procedures that lead to DNA damages, chromosomal aberrations and gene mutations, all of which are associated with the cancer development processes.”There are many potential uses for amifostine,” said David Gardina, professor of radiation and cellular oncology at the University of Chicago and inventor of the technology behind the development of amifostine as a genomic stabilizing agent, “In addition to protecting against genomic instability, somatic mutagenesis and carcinogenesis, amifostine may also facilitate protection against germ line mutations. These exposures can come from a variety of sources, including common diagnostic procedures, such as computed tomography (CT) scans and more generalized environmental exposures, as recently evidenced by the nuclear plant accident in Japan.” At present, none of these potential uses has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).According to Viren Grover, vice-chairman at Pinnacle Biologics, “It is clear that CT scans have revolutionized diagnostic imaging, and while they can provide great medical benefits, there is concern that diagnostic CT scans may be responsible for elevating genomic instability processes. Over 70 million CT scans were performed in the U.S. alone in 2007. A study led by National Institute of Cancer suggested that this may contribute to 29,000 new cancers each year, along with 14,500 deaths. Our proposal is to develop amifostine for the prevention of genomic instability in high-risk individuals undergoing CT diagnostic procedures.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

The Vscan houses innovative technology that can provide an immediate, noninvasive method to secure visual information from inside the body. A total of 72 pocket-sized devices will be provided for use in a research study and distributed to teams of first-year medical school students that make up the 140-member Class of 2016. The objective of the study is to demonstrate that handheld imaging technology can contribute to medical education at all levels of instruction and learning.At the beginning of each academic year, first-year medical students at Mount Sinai School of Medicine participate in a medical school tradition that kicks off their medical career — the white coat ceremony. After listening to inspirational speeches, students don their new white coats and receive a stethoscope at a special ceremony attended by family, friends and faculty members.  During this day, students, parents and faculty will also be introduced to the handheld ultrasound.“First-year medical students traditionally learn about the human body by dissecting the cadavers and eventually by examining the patients, and the examination ranges from inspection and palpation to listening with the help of a stethoscope and interpreting the sounds of the heart, lungs and blood vessels,” says Jagat Narula, M.D., Ph.D., who is the principal investigator of this research study and the director of the cardiovascular imaging program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. “With handheld ultrasound, our medical students will have the ability to see live images of inside the body projected onto a handheld screen in real time.  It’s an innovative educational concept that can modernize medical education.” Narula believes that imaging and specifically handheld devices will become an integral part of the physical examination. As part of the study, handheld ultrasound will be added to the curriculum of first-year students during their Art and Science of Medicine (ASM) courses to augment their physical examination skills. Groups of four students will share the device as they learn about the capabilities of ultrasound.David Muller, M.D., dean of medical education at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, says of the research study, “First-year medical students will learn how to identify and assess the anatomical structures within cardiac, thoracic and abdominal applications. We are excited to incorporate the portable ultrasound in our curriculum as we strive to revolutionize the way medicine is taught.”“Today, we are thrilled to play a part in this important research project by providing Mount Sinai’s first-year medical students with the power of portable ultrasound technology, as they take the first step towards becoming our next generation of doctors,” says Tom Gentile, president and CEO of GE Healthcare Systems. “Tools like Vscan have the ability to help transform the physical exam and today’s announcement reaffirms GE Healthcare’s commitment to research and improving patient care by helping enhance the physician’s ability to quickly and accurately diagnose patients.”Commercially launched in February 2010 by GE, this device offers applications in cardiology, emergency medicine, primary care and obstetrics applications.  Through the study, students will use handheld ultrasound as an educational tool at Mount Sinai to examine the real-life anatomy and physiology of healthy subjects, and then apply this base knowledge to their studies. “We expect that using handheld ultrasound will bring our students’ education to an innovative new level,” said Brett Nelson, M.D., associate professor in the department of emergency medicine at Mount Sinai, who will be leading the new curriculum with Narula.  “Having exposure to this ultrasound technology early in their medical education will provide our first-year students with skills that they will carry with them throughout their careers.”For more information:, FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 05, 2019 Digital Health Devices Used at Point of Care May Improve Diagnostic Certainty A West Virginia-based rural medical outreach event showcased the use of point-of-care technology in an ambulatory… read more 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 11, 2019 360 Degree View of a Smartphone Performing a Cardiac Ultrasound Exam This 360 degree photo shows a basic, point-of-care cardiac echocardiogram being performed using a smartphone turned i read more read more News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 31, 2019 Studies Confirm Clinical Value of ShearWave Elastography for Liver Fibrosis Evaluation SuperSonic Imagine announced the publication of the results of its prospective multicentric clinical study conducted in… read more The ScanTrainer transvaginal simulator is one example of Intelligent Ultrasound’s simulation technologies.last_img read more

Fed Report Regulatory Reform Coming in Slow Measures

first_img Share The last few weeks have seen a “”deluge””: of “”new rules””: from the “”Consumer Financial Protection Bureau””: (CFPB) and other “”regulatory agencies””:, but a “”new report””: from the “”U.S. Government Accountability Office””: (GAO) says the reform process is still coming along slowly.[IMAGE]As of the end of 2012, GAO estimates regulators have issued rules for approximately 48 percent of the Dodd-Frank provisions that call for them. Most of the effective deadlines for those rules have not yet been reached, the agency says.Of the remaining Dodd-Frank provisions, GAO says regulators have proposed rules for about 29 percent, while the remaining 23 percent have yet to be addressed.According to the report, the biggest obstacle standing in the way of new rulemaking and implementation is the sheer number and complexity of issues discussed in Dodd-Frank. Adding to the difficulty is the fact that many [COLUMN_BREAK]rules are interconnected, requiring a level of coordination between agencies that can often delay their procedures.Regulators have also prioritized responsiveness over timeliness when it comes to finalizing the reforms.””For example, to implement the act’s ban on proprietary trading–trading activities conducted by financial institutions for their own accounts as opposed to those of their clients–the regulators issued draft rules that contained over 750 questions for the public’s input and spurred over 19,000 comment letters,”” the report notes.Furthermore, the effectiveness of those reforms that actually have been implemented has yet to be seen, GAO says. The agency offers as an example the requirement that certain institutions create and submit “”living wills”” to promote a rapid and orderly resolution in case of bankruptcy. While many financial firms have submitted their resolution plans, the effectiveness of these provisions can’t be known until the first large failure.In addition, GAO says a number of other concerns still exist, including continued federal overexposure to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as they operate under conservatorship. Until the GSEs’ status is resolved, the report notes, “”these entities continue to represent financial exposures for the federal government, a risk to taxpayers, and an impediment to the transition to a housing market that functions effectively without the current level of substantial federal support.””Although the GSEs’ conservator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), has put out proposals to change their procedures and encourage private market participation, no definitive plan has yet been developed.

Summer Movie Preview Capturing the essence of Elt

first_imgSummer Movie Preview: Capturing the essence of Elton John AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email This combination photo shows Himesh Patel in a scene from “Yesterday,” from left, Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson in a scene from “The Hustle,” Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in a scene from “Men in Black: International,” Taron Egerton in a scene from “Rocketman” and a scene from “The Lion King.” (Universal Pictures/MGM/Sony/Paramount/Disney via AP) LAS VEGAS — Sir Elton John gave actor Taron Egerton some unlikely advice for portraying him in “Rocketman”: Don’t do an impression. Sing the songs the way you want.It was a freeing, if unusual, bit of direction for a project about himself that John had been trying to make for seven years. But it gets to the heart of what “Rocketman,” out May 31, is trying to do: Evoke the essence of John’s life, as told by John, from his childhood to middle age and all the success, tumult and darkness behind all those fantastical costumes, and not give audiences a Wikipedia entry. You won’t even hear John’s voice at all — Egerton performs the songs himself. It’s an unconventional biopic for an unconventional rock star and John, 72, certainly wasn’t going to get in the way of that.The project itself came together in a roundabout way, after a few years of false starts. At one point, Tom Hardy was actually signed on to star. But it wasn’t until producer Matthew Vaughn — who is friends with John and his husband David Furnish and had convinced John to do a cameo in his “Kingsman” sequel — proposed the idea of Egerton that things really started moving forward.Director Dexter Fletcher said it was the, “idea of Taron playing Elton that ignited it for me.” He’d worked with the actor before, on “Eddie the Eagle,” and knew he had the vocal chops to do it and the daring to be able to “go there” for an R-rated musical.In “Rocketman,” there will be rock and roll, drugs, sex, rehab and an exploration of John’s relationship with his then-manager John Reid, who is played by “Game of Thrones” alum Richard Madden. In other words, “Bohemian Rhapsody” this is not.“It’s where they didn’t dare to go on ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ where they didn’t want to go,” said Fletcher, who was actually the one who finished the Oscar-winning Freddie Mercury biopic after director Bryan Singer exited. “It’s part of Elton’s life. He wears glasses. He plays the piano. He’s gay…I saw it as an opportunity to look at that. It’s responsibly and creatively and respectfully handled and I’m really happy with what we’ve done. I think it might make a difference.”“Bohemian Rhapsody” was criticized for glossing over Mercury’s sexuality.For Egerton, 29, the opportunity to play John was a “surreal dream,” if a little daunting.“I’m a big believer in doing things that scare you and it is intimidating but I wouldn’t have done it if I didn’t feel it was a good candidate for the job,” said Egerton. “I always felt that it had the potential to be quite special.”He plays the music icon from around age 17, when he’s still going by Reginald Dwight, to age 43. To prepare, he trawled YouTube for old clips and acquainted himself with some lesser known songs, but he knew that there was a limit to what he’d be able to glean from the public record, in part because the film shows John at some of his darkest moments, which weren’t exactly happening when the cameras were on. And he found that he learned the most by getting to know John himself.In fact, Egerton has become good friends with John over the past few years, starting with his “Kingsman” cameo, evolving to their first one-on-one outing for takeaway curry, and culminating into a relationship where they now speak most days.“He’s great fun,” Egerton said. “He’s a great raconteur and he’s very funny. And he’s very interested in me as well.”They even have been known to give each other gifts. John gave Egerton his first diamond earring (which Egerton wears for the rehab scenes) and Egerton, in return, got John’s prescription added to the glitzy glasses he wears in the scene where he’s writing “Your Song.”“He’s worn them a couple of times since which really touched me,” Egerton said.As with the singing, Egerton had the freedom to put his own spin and interpretation on things.“It’s a fantasy creation,” he said. “When you see the film I hope I am recognizable as him. But it’s undeniably me as well.”It’s worth reiterating that this is not even attempting to be a documentary. As Fletcher says, John is telling his story from memory, and he’s a “slightly unreliable narrator.” So the costumes aren’t carbon copies. He didn’t really levitate on stage at The Troubadour (nor was he clean shaven). And don’t expect to learn any dates (there are none included).“He is the rocket man. You can’t be pedestrian with your storytelling when you’re making a movie about a rocket man…It’s a little psychedelic, elevated and kooky,” Egerton said.And while the laws of gravity aren’t necessarily applicable here, there was one rule he set for himself: You will never see him miming any songs. Most of the time, he’s actually even singing in-camera.Aside from the spectacle of the songs, the heart of the film, for Egerton, is John’s relationship with Bernie Taupin, his longtime lyricist who is played by Jamie Bell.“It’s a platonic love story between Elton and Bernie,” he said.He remembers asking John what it was like when he met Taupin.John told him, “It was like meeting the brother I had never had. It was someone to go to the cinema with,” Egerton said. “It’s like (expletive), you know? There was a time when Elton John had no one to go to the cinema with.”It’ll be a daunting day, he expects, when John finally sees the final cut, but he and Fletcher are eager for audiences to see it.“Some things you do for love and some things you do for money,” said Fletcher. “We set out on this to create something that we will love in 50 years’ time.”___Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: complete coverage of this summer’s movie season, visit: Bahr, The Associated Press by Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Posted May 2, 2019 10:18 am PDTlast_img read more

partner at Byloom a boutique well-known for helping revive India’s handloom sari traditions with a contemporary flair discovered the museum when a Canadian client told him about it Now he regularly brings foreign visitors to it In some ways it’s more fascinating than the Indian Museum “You see the kanthas the moulds they used to make sweets” he says “It gives a glimpse of life” Inside the Gurusday Museum All photos courtesy the writer On the 136th birth anniversary of Gurusday Dutt on 10 May there was a daylong event to “Love the Museum” complete with a selfie booth — something hitherto unheard of at the museum There’s now even a Facebook group — Save Bengal’s Folk History — with its own hashtag #SaveFolkMuseum Shrutakirti Dutta a research scholar at Jadavpur University started the group with a few likeminded friends She admits she too hadn’t heard of the museum until it was facing imminent closure But when she visited it she was amazed “We know so much about the swadeshi movement or the 19th century Bengal Renaissance” she says “But this is a domestic history There are molds to make aamsotto (mango leather) and sandesh This is also the history of generations of women Narrativising it is so very important” That is what is unique about this museum In one gallery there are 11th century black stone images of Vishnu and Durga and Buddha That could belong to any Indian museum But the painted scrolls the sandesh molds the wooden toys the blankets the necklaces made out of rice grains are its true riches An example of arshilata kantha at Gurusaday Museum Like many Bengalis I grew up with my own kantha made from torn saris But it’s only at this museum that I realised how many kinds of kanthas there are — sujni betan durjani khoka lep rumal to name just a handful “The names all come from the purpose of the kantha” says Subhankar Mandal an art historian photographing the kanthas “For example the arshilata is the kantha used to cover the mirror from aarshi or mirror and a lata-like a vine growing over it” He says there is no museum that has so many kanthas telling so many stories One for example holds up a mirror to 19th century Bengal’s babu-and-sahib society complete with bayonet and sword-wielding soldiers elephants and a phaeton car all painstakingly hand-stitched These were labours of love made for near and dear ones “You can think of it as the diary of a lady” says Snehangshu Sekhar Das a designer with the ministry of textiles “It has her emotion her selfless love I remember one had the words ‘Aamay Jeno Bhulo Na (Do Not Forget Me Please)’ stitched into it” Gurusaday Dutt understood the importance of that plea He documented the lyrics of the songs sung alongside the patachitra scrolls before they were forgotten He took pains to record the names of some of the women (like Nirmala Sundari Devi and Mandasundari Dasya) who stitched these blankets painted these scrolls — all without thinking of themselves as artists Dutt’s civil service career allowed him to travel extensively and he collected some 2500 objects to rediscover the folk traditions that were already disappearing In 1932 he held an exhibition at the Indian Society of Oriental Art where Abanindranath Tagore marveled at the collection hailing Dutt as a jeweller Dutt left his collection to the Bengal Bratachari Samity he had formed an organisation that tries to build national consciousness through folk traditions His grandson Devsaday Dutt says he grew up with this collection “It was in our house tillI was about11 or 12” he remembers “My grandfather came from rural Bengal His attachment to it was something else My father and I are urban Neither of us can come close to that” Kantha detail with elephant phaeton Now as the museum faces an uncertain future there are some rays of hope When the Kolkata Metro expansion is complete it will pass right by the museum That will certainly make it more accessible — though it raises the question: does a city’s heritage only matter if it lives within its tourist-friendly precincts Dutt deliberately bought this land outside the city in what was then jungle to be closer to rural Bengal He wanted to build a training centre for folk artists and a cooperative Dr Mondal is surprised and moved at the many ways the city has reached out to help the beleaguered museum Shrutakirti Dutta says

would be honoured to host the highlights of the Gurusaday collection at the Victoria Memorial as a way to “showcase the priceless collection" "Perhaps the next generation will be made aware” Sengupta says (L) Patachitra scroll; (R) a damaged scroll painting But time is scarce Already many of the paintings some belonging to Jamini Roy and Abanindranath Tagore the 18-panel scrolls telling stories from great poems are at risk in the muggy heat of Kolkata “What climate control can we afford” says Mondal ruefully “When it is hot I can turn on the fan When it rains I keep the windows closed Nothing more” He listens to the talk about footfall marketability reinvention digital storytelling audits transparency and interactive displays with both attention and some nervousness These are uncharted waters for a museum that existed on the fringes of both the city and its consciousness for decades “This event itself could be our turning point” he says “Though we must remember if something is marketable it becomes a handicraft This is not a handicraft museum this is a folk art museum That’s what Gurusaday Dutt collected” “Folk art should stay in a folk museum” agrees Devsaday Dutt as he walks past a garlanded statue of the grandfather he never saw “See I have no ownership in this My grandfather did not leave any of this to us It belongs to the nation Let’s see if the
