first_imgCredit: ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) — Regina King is taking her directing talents to the big screen.According to Deadline, the Oscar-winner has been tapped to direct a film adaptation of One Night in Miami, based on Kemp Powers’ stage play of the same name. The film will mark King’s first major theatrical directorial debut; she previously directed the BET film Let The Church Say Amen. Like the play, the film will follow a fictional account of a real-life incident in which Muhammad Ali — then known then as Cassius Clay — spent an evening hanging out with football star Jim Brown, activist Malcolm X and singer Sam Cooke.Set on February 25, 1964, the film follows Clay as he leaves the Miami Beach Convention Center as the World Heavyweight Boxing Champion after defeating Sonny Liston. However, he can’t party in Miami Beach because of Jim Crow-era segregation laws, so he ends up spending his night at the Hampton House Motel in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood celebrating with three pals:  Cooke, Brown and Malcolm X.After their night out, according to Deadline, the men emerge the next morning “determined to define a new world.”The film will also feature the music of Cooke, including his iconic song, “A Change Is Gonna Come.”This is the latest project for King, who will soon been seen in HBO’s Watchmen series.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

A typical working day for Lakhi and Quarmy now begins at 4:30 a.m. with vigorous running, exercising and training drills. “This keeps the dog on its feet, disciplined and further enhancing her skills,” Lakhi says. To teach her to sniff out contraband, the trainer has Quarmy fetch balls containing small bits of rhino horn, tiger skin and other wildlife parts, familiarizing her with the scent. After that, a game of hide-and-seek with Lakhi keeps her tracking skills sharp. “A search, no matter how short or long, is a big game for her,” says Lakhi, patting her.Sundays are leisure time for Quarmy, when she enjoys elaborate grooming or even learns how to “drive” a car — Lakhi says Quarmy loves to sit in the driver’s seat and play with the steering wheel.  “She enjoys being the center of attention while learning to drive,” he says.The Malinois K9 squad prepares for duty with a similarly rigorous blend of play and training. Sanatan Mali, Zubi’s trainer, says the young female becomes absolutely focused once she’s put into her harness for work or training. This morning, Zubi is engaged in a tracking exercise, hunting a hidden staff member after being given a sniff of his shoe.Even young dogs like Zubi can be intimidating as they zero in on a target, but Sanatan says the dogs are trained to stop the moment a suspect is located. They are never let loose or allowed to injure or bite people, he says — a bit of training Zubi demonstrates when she locates the trainer posing as a poacher.The K9 pups squad puppies and their handlers get lessons from German instructors. Image courtesy of Aaranyak.In addition to rounding up the poachers, the dogs also help strengthen the ensuing investigations by tracking down evidence, says Rohini Ballav Saikia, the divisional forest officer at Kaziranga. Though the forest department is often able to make arrests after poaching incidents, conviction rates are as low as 5 percent, according to Rahul Dutta of the International Rhino Foundation. Lack of evidence remains one of the biggest problems for the department, and Saikia said he was hopeful that the dogs could be helpful here, by tracking down not just suspected poachers, but also weapons or pieces of horn that can definitively link them to a crime.Just as important, though, is the deterrent effect, Saikia says: “Poachers be aware and stay away, we are here to track you down!”After working hard all week, Quarmy enjoys “driving” on her day off.

Article published by Isabel Esterman Animals, Archive, Biodiversity, Conservation, Environment, Featured, Happy-upbeat Environmental, Mammals, One-horned Rhinos, Poaching, Rhinos, Wildlife, Wildlife Trade, Wildlife Trafficking Since 2011, two dog squads have been deployed to help protect the greater one-horned rhinos of India’s Assam state.Together, the squads are credited with assisting in more than 46 arrests.Both the dogs and their handlers go through intensive training to develop and maintain their skills and the crucial bond that allows them to work as a team. ASSAM STATE, India: It’s 5 a.m. and Officer Zorba is reporting for duty at Kaziranga National Park, the global stronghold of the one-horned rhino (Rhinoceros unicornis) and the epicenter of a fierce battle to keep poaching at bay. The breeze riffling through his short, coarse hair, Zorba prepares for training: a brief run followed by tracking drills.Suddenly, a shoe is thrown at him. In a flash, the Belgian Malinois, part of a K9 squad supported by local NGO Aaranyak, takes a sniff and begins to hunt for a decoy poacher hiding behind a tree. Zorba quickly finds him and gives chase until he is pulled up by instructions from his handler, Goura Baidya.Zorba and his handlers on a tracking drill. Image by Moushumi Basu for Mongabay.Deployed in Kaziranga in 2011, Zorba was the first dog used for anti-poaching operations in Assam state. His arrival was met with high expectations — expectations conservationists say he has more than met.“He has amazing success stories, leading to the arrests of nearly 30 poachers in 18 successful operations so far,” says Bibhab Talukdar, CEO of Aaranyak and chair of the IUCN Asian Rhino Specialist Group. This, he says, is the best record so far for a sniffer dog in Assam.“Once set tracking, after made to sniff a scent, he is simply unstoppable, no matter what comes his way,” Baidya says. The handler, a stocky, athletic man in his mid-20s, is effusive when it comes to the achievements of his “comrade.” He’s eager to recount the time when Zorba fished a camera trap out of a pond, leading to the recovery of images of poachers in action, key evidence that led to their arrest. Or another event, when the dog picked up a blood trail left by an injured poacher and followed it for nearly 1.5 kilometers (0.9 miles) until he was located.Buoyed by Zorba’s success, Aaranyak now has two other dogs in the field as part of its K9 squad:  4-year-old Bubbly and 19-month-old Zubi, both female Malinois — and another three pups in training. The dogs are raised, nurtured and trained by Aaranyak, with support from the U.K.-based David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and Germany’s Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU).Quarmy, part of the Super Sniffer squad, and her handlers with a rhino horn the dog helped to recover. Image courtesy of the Assam Forest Department.Since 2012, the K9 squad has helped forest officials track down and arrest more than 40 poaching suspects around Kaziranga, Talukdar says. The dogs have also helped recover arms and ammunition and other vital pieces of evidence.In a complementary effort, two German shepherds belong to the Super Sniffers, which are trained under the aegis of TRAFFIC India, part of the global wildlife trade and monitoring network. Four-year-old Kareena began patrolling in Assam in 2014, and was joined by 19-month-old female Quarmy in 2017.Quarmy is presently stationed in Kaziranga, while Kareena is with the Assam Forest Protection Force and is deployed in joint anti-poaching operations conducted with the forest department and state police. Over the course of a dozen operations so far, Kareena has helped nab five poachers, according to her handler, Jitu Gogoi. Meanwhile, Quarmy thwarted a poaching attempt within her first week of deployment in the northern range of Kaziranga National Park: she successfully sniffed out both a silencer-fitted firearm and a suspected poacher.K9-squad member Bubbly arrives for her field duty. Image courtesy of AaranyakBred for the jobBoth dog breeds have their proponents. The short-haired Malinois hold up well in India’s weather and don’t attract too many ticks and parasites, says Kaushik Baruah, head of Aaranyak’s dog-training program. “They are lighter, smaller in build than German shepherds and are less noisy; yet very tough, active and can continue to work for hours even in the hot and humid Indian climate.” The breed, used as military dogs in the United States, India and Europe, also has a strong sense of drive, Baruah says: “They can sniff, track, detect and attack.”TRAFFIC India, however, prizes German shepherds for their versatility. “German shepherds are amazing all-rounders,” says Amar Nath Choudhary, from the organization’s dog-training squad. “They can be trained to take various instructions on multipurpose activities and used for guarding, tracking wildlife crimes besides catching poachers.”Regardless of the differences, the forest department says it’s pleased with the contributions of the dog squads. Pradipto Barua, divisional forest officer at Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary in Assam, says sniffer dogs have helped authorities track down suspects in roughly 60 percent of recent rhino poaching cases in the state. In a 2014 report, former Kaziranga field director M.K. Yadov also sang the dogs’ praises, saying their introduction was an innovative step that helped modernize wildlife crime investigations in the park. Poachers could be tracked, he wrote, “based on just a piece of cloth found at crime scene.”Quarmy’s handler shows a sketch of his canine partner. Image by Moushumi Basu for Mongabay.Developing these skills doesn’t come easy. It takes long and rigorous training of both the dogs and their handlers.“The rapport between the dogs and their handlers is … crucial in getting the best out of the squad,” says Talukdar of Aaranyak. The dogs are trained to only take instructions from their handlers —or, in case of emergencies, Aaranyak’s in-house dog trainer — so there has to be perfect understanding and coordination between the two, he says.“Our handlers are not just regular employees, but they are recruited on the basis of their long-standing commitment and dedication. Only then, the dog can be kept motivated and healthy, enabling us to reap the best dividends from their invaluable partnership. Their job is thus not easy and there has to be a tenacity to learn and excel,” Talukdar says.Baidya, Zorba’s handler, says their relationship got off to a rocky start: “He got me nervous and even bit me.” Since then, it has evolved. “Soon we were best of friends, being together all the time — eating, sleeping, working together. Today it is hard to stay away from each other,” he says.For TRAFFIC India’s Super Sniffers, training lasts nine months. It begins with a month of bonding with handlers when the pups are between 8 and 12 weeks old. Lakhinandan “Lakhi” Baruah, Quarmy’s handler, says he had little experience with dogs before he began the program. “I was both excited and scared, as I had never stepped that close to a dog,” he recalls of their first meeting in April 2017, when Quarmy was about 5 months old and greeted him with a flying leap. The pair now have an unmistakable bond.center_img Quarmy at tracking practice with her handler. Image courtesy of the Assam Forest Department. Quarmy at tracking practice with her handler.

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more

first_imgBrendan Rodgers was unwilling to say whether the Celtic board matched his own personal ambitions for the Scottish champions.Rodgers has pressed for the Hoops board to bring in reinforcements this summer in a bid to improve the Hoops squad.To this point, however, Odsonne Edouard remains the only new face at Parkhead after one of Rodgers’ main transfer targets, John McGinn, opted to join Aston Villa on Tuesday.Rodgers, who confirmed Daniel Arzani is set to sign for Celtic and that Emilio Izaguirre is poised to make his comeback, believes the Hoops could have hit a glass ceiling when it comes to achieving success in European football. Asked if his ambition was matched by the board, he said: “I wouldn’t answer that. It’s private.”On Celtic facing a glass ceiling in Europe, he added: “It’s something that maybe is the case.“But, for us, all we can is our very best with the resources we have.“This is a wonderful football club with a worldwide, fanatical fan base and we want to bring as much happiness to them as we can with what we have. “And I think we have done that these last couple of seasons.“Of course, you always want that ambition to improve and be better, that may not always be the case but we always hope we can do.“This group have shown they are developing but especially in the European side of the game, financially it is becoming more difficult.“This season will demonstrate that, especially in this competition, no matter where we finish in it.“The football landscape has changed dramatically in the last few years and that is mostly financially.”He continued: “It’s always going to be difficult unless you have major investment, that’s the reality of it.“My ambitions for Celtic are to be the best it can be and the players to be the best they can be, that’s where my ambition lies.“I’ve huge respect for the people that work here at the club. They’ve created a very stable foundation, I have to respect that.“Of course, as a manager I want the club to be the very best it can be and see the club progress.“All we are looking to do is replace the players we want and improve the quality.”Celtic lost out on McGinn but Rodgers wished the Scotland international all the best for his move south.He added: “I’ve seen him develop into a first-class young player.“As a Celtic supporter himself, I would have loved for him to have been here but it wasn’t to be.“I spoke to him yesterday and wished him all the very best. He’s joined a great football club and I’m sure he’ll do very well for Steve.”Celtic face Hearts this Saturday and Rodgers expects Craig Levein will leave the grass long at Tynecastle once again.He said: “I’m sure the grass will be long, but you have to play whatever is in front of you or at your feet.“For me, it’s about football and bringing the best game to the supporters, that won’t change.”last_img read more

Home sellers can also opt-in for Pro.com service to install the devices.In the future, Worthington Group may add new devices and alternatives to the staging kit. Having an alternative to Lutron will be the largest request, we would assume, considering Philips and LIFX are more popular for smart lighting services.Coldwell Banker survey showed big interestColdwell Banker spotted the interest in smart home devices in a survey, where 35 percent of respondents said they associate smart home tech with a move-in ready home. It is aiming for the millennial generation as well, 50 percent said smart home tech would attract them to a house.See Also: Future hackers might freeze you out til you pay upOnce all six devices are connected, Coldwell Banker will add a Smart Home icon to the house on its online real estate service. It did not say if the value of the house would rise once the staging kit is installed, though some insurance providers are lowering rates for customers that own smart home devices like the Nest smart thermostat.“Smart Home technology is a consumer driven movement,” said Coldwell Banker CEO, Sean Blankenship. “Our research confirms this technology has a positive influence in the appeal of a home—and agents agree.

first_imgStory Highlights The official funeral was a celebration of a life well-lived and included musical tributes from Pam Hall, DiMario McDowell, and Professor Winston Davidson. Hundreds of mourners turned out at the St. Andrew Parish Church on Thursday (September 20) to pay final respects to late former government minister, Easton Wentworth Xavier Douglas.The official funeral was a celebration of a life well-lived and included musical tributes from Pam Hall, DiMario McDowell, and Professor Winston Davidson.The congregation included Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, who read the first lesson from Lamentations 3:21-26, and former Prime Ministers, the Most Hon. P.J. Patterson and the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, who both delivered tributes.Mr. Patterson noted that Mr. Douglas, who served as Minister of Health; Public Service; and Environment and Housing, was a town planner by profession, who ensured that thousands of Jamaicans received proper housing during his tenure in politics.“Easton’s skills in physical planning and urban development were formidable, resulting eventually in his appointment as Chief Town Planner,” Mr. Patterson said.“He was a wise, energetic and creative member of my team in the Cabinet… . He was a man of formidable courage and indomitable will, who was prepared to take the lead of the battle, no matter how hot or weighty the odds, and to do so from the frontline,” he noted further.Mrs. Simpson Miller said that Mr. Douglas was one of her mentors who guided her on the path to becoming Jamaica’s first female Prime Minister.“He made available to me his wealth of experience in public service,” she noted.She also remembered him as someone who had a passion for the provision of houses that not only provided shelter but helped to build families.“Most of the housing that was done for the poor in this country was done through Easton Douglas… . He was the one that started to put proper housing in these inner-city communities, so that the people could live in a particular way and [under] good conditions,” she added.Mr. Douglas was Member of Parliament of South East St. Andrew from 1989 to 2002. He was also a Permanent Secretary and Government Town Planner. He was the Minister responsible for the National Land Policy in 1996, dealing with human settlement, rural and agricultural planning, and management of our water resources and our coastal zones.He helped to fashion the National Land Agency, which brought together all the government agencies involved in transactions related to land.He helped to redesign and merge various groups relating to environment and planning and insisted on a coordinated and integrated approach to town planning and land utilisation.The body of the late Easton Douglas was interred at the St. Dorothy’s Church grounds in Old Harbour, St. Catherine. Hundreds of mourners turned out at the St. Andrew Parish Church on Thursday (September 20) to pay final respects to late former government minister, Easton Wentworth Xavier Douglas.
