No dress code but plenty of references to MeToo a

first_imgNo dress code, but plenty of references to MeToo at Oscars Kaia Burke, left, and Tarana Burke arrive at the Oscars on Sunday, March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP) There was no #MeToo or Time’s Up dress code on the Oscar red carpet. But the topic was, to no one’s surprise, a major theme of the evening — from Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue, to an emotional appearance by three Harvey Weinstein accusers, to Frances McDormand’s calling all female nominees to rise with her in unison.Kimmel got right to it, addressing both sexual misconduct and the gender pay gap in his opening speech.“Here’s how clueless Hollywood is about women,” Kimmel said. “We made a movie called ‘What Women Want’ and it starred Mel Gibson.”Turning serious, Kimmel said the world was watching — and that Hollywood needed to set an example.And then he quipped: “If we can stop sexual harassment in the workplace, women will only ever have to deal with harassment all the time, every place else they go.”He also evoked the now-disgraced name of Harvey Weinstein, whose sexual misconduct — revealed late last year — launched the stunning reckoning that quickly spread to other areas of society. For years one of the biggest players at the Oscars, Weinstein has now been thrown out of the academy. Kimmel marveled that the only other person ever kicked out was a character actor who shared screeners.The most emotional #MeToo moment, though, came courtesy of actresses Ashley Judd, Annabella Sciorra and Salma Hayek, three women who were instrumental in the unfolding Weinstein revelations. They came onstage to introduce a montage that celebrated diversity — of all kinds — in cinematic storytelling.Said Judd, whose accusations were detailed in the very first New York Times article that broke open the Weinstein story: “The changes that we are witnessing are being driven by the powerful sound of new voices, of different voices, of OUR voices, joining together in a mighty chorus that is finally saying, ‘Time’s Up!’”Sciorra, who told The New Yorker magazine that Weinstein had raped her and she’d kept it secret for many years, said: “This year many spoke their truth, and the journey ahead is long. But slowly a new path has emerged.”And Hayek, who wrote a first-person piece in the Times calling Weinstein “my monster too,” saluted “those unstoppable spirits who kicked ass and broke through the … biased perceptions against their gender, race and ethnicity to tell their stories.”A bit later, there was Frances McDormand, setting down her best-actress statuette on the floor so she could exhort all female nominees in the theatre to stand up in unison with her.“Look around, ladies and gentlemen,” she said, pointing to them, “because we all have stories to tell and projects that need financing.”On the red carpet, one of many guests speaking about #MeToo was the founder of the movement, Tarana Burke.“We did the dress code thing, and now we’re doing the work,” Burke told The Associated Press. “The plan is to continue to do this work to give people resources.”But elsewhere on the carpet, an uncomfortable drama was playing out, as a number of big stars appeared to spurn Ryan Seacrest, the E! red carpet host who has been accused of sexual misconduct — including groping — by a stylist who worked for him. Some stars did speak to him, including nominees Allison Janney, Christopher Plummer and Mary J. Blige, who noted in another interview that Seacrest was “fighting for his identity.”Seacrest has denied the allegations and E! has stood by him. But many on Twitter complained about reports that the network had instituted a 30-second delay to prevent awkward confrontations. (In the end, there were none.) The network said that it was “business as usual. As always, we tape multiple sources of content simultaneously to deliver the best possible show, and there are often brief delays between interviews.”Burke, before the awards, had said Seacrest shouldn’t be on the carpet, putting stars in an awkward position. “We shouldn’t have to make those choices of, ‘Do we or don’t we?’” she told Variety.E! was already under fire at the Golden Globes in January, where actress Eva Longoria used her interview to criticize the network over a pay equity dispute involving former anchor Catt Sadler, who quit after learning she was making much less than her male co-anchor.___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeasoncenter_img by Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted Mar 4, 2018 7:59 pm PDT Last Updated Mar 4, 2018 at 9:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

government would never go for forcible land acquisition West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee PTI Banerjee who skipped the NITI Aayog’s Governing Council meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi to discuss various issues including the land Bill said her state was following an alternative land policy as it "cannot wait indefinitely for the Centre to come up with its land acquisition policy" "We have framed an alternative land policy where direct purchase can be done through negotiations without any forcible acquisition" the chief minister said at the 100th administrative meeting of the Trinamool Congress government in Burdwan Banerjee said that the government had been able to complete various projects through direct land purchase after holding negotiations with the land-owners She said that the government had to do this because many projects were getting stalled in the absence of Centre’s land acquisition policy which was pending "We cannot wait indefinitely for the Centre to come up with its land acquisition policy so we have started following this model We have taken the people into confidence while acquiring land" the chief minister said Citing instances where the state had been able to give land to big projects Banerjee said that the Andal greenfield airport was given land for completion as well as NTPC’s Katwa project among others Several other projects for bridges and irrigation had started by acquiring land following this route she said "It depends on case-to-case basis" The state had also created a land bank land use policy and land map "We have taken land from this bank to set up industrial parks" she said Referring to Singur which witnessed vehement opposition by her to forcible acquisition for Tata’s Nano project by erstwhile Left Front government she said "There was a problem But for others there had been no such issue" Spelling out another new initiative at the meeting attended by ministers bureaucrats SDOs BDOs among others Banerjee said that the state government was contemplating creating a "business corridor" as West Bengal was the gateway to the east "In line with the ‘Look East Policy’ of the Centre we are intending to create a business corridor as the state is the gateway for Bangladesh Nepal and Bhutan" she said This corridor would help boost trade travel and tourism ties with these countries and the estimated cost will be around Rs 2000 crore "We will tell the Centre about this plan" she said The money would be spent in developing infrastructure at border points like widening of roads creating approach roads and rail overbridges she said She also said that the state would also provide help in setting up bank branches with the intention to wipe out the lure of the ponzi firms which were duping the people She said the model of holding continuous meetings at districts had proved to be very successful "Working at the grassroots level has proved to be very effective We do not want to impose decisions from the top" she said adding that such meetings were held few and far between during the previous government Despite the Centre "stalling" funds under NREGA she said West Bengal had emerged number one in this scheme Attacking the previous government Banerjee said "no money was spent before my party came to power Only non-plan expenditure was made" Like the three-tier panchayati system she said the government would create a similar DM-SDO-BDO path to improve delivery mechanism Blaming the Left Front for state’s debt burden she said that "there is no money with us for doing development work" "All the money is used to pay up for the debt of the past government" she said adding that despite such a handicap the state had achieved success in sectors like health roads education minority and tribal welfare The government would create job opportunities for two lakh people "We have already given government employment to 25 lakh" Banerjee said The state was facing a shortage in police manpower she said For the poor she said that state would provide subdisidised foodgrains to all and told the administration that no such person identified as needy should be left out "It is our moral duty to feed the poor and I do not want to take credit for that" she said Banerjee also spoke about "success" in restoring peace in the Darjeeling hills and

and Nitish Kumar are ready for the Bihar battle They have given final shape to a seat-sharing formula to ensure their alliance doesn’t fall apart at the last hurdle before polls and the non-NDA vote doesn’t split Once the Congress agrees with the arrangement—the announcement is scheduled around August 15 — the Bihar election would become a bipolar fight between two alliances: BJP and its allies on one side; Kumar-Yadav and their partners on the others For the past few weeks there was speculation within the NDA camp that Kumar and Yadav will fight over the number of seats for their parties and part ways But this doesn’t seem to be happening The fear of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is keeping them glued In all likelihood Kumar’s JD (U) and Yadav’s RJD will contest on an equal number of seats around 100 The Congress which is yet to formally announce the pact with the two parties will get around 30 seats The NCP’s share could be around five seats Bihar has 243 assembly constituencies Now that Yadav and Kumar are almost certain that they do not want the anti-NDA vote to split the outcome would be mainly by four factors: Modi’s influence Kumar’s popularity Yadav’s ability to transfer RJD votes to the alliance and the ability of the two camps to rearrange existing caste equations The Bihar election is the first after Delhi where voters had proved that the Modi wave can be countered by two factors: absence of Congress as an important player and the presence of a charismatic regional leader Lalu Prasad Yadav (left) and Nitish Kumar IBNLive Both these factors are working in Bihar Kumar like Kejriwal turned out to be in Delhi is the most popular state leader His ratings are much higher than BJP rival Sushil Modi and Lok Janshakti Party leader Ram Vilas Paswan Kumar’s popularity in Bihar will thus effectively balance the power of Modi Similarly just as in Delhi the Congress is a marginal player This doesn’t help the BJP In the 2014 Lok Sabha election a large number of voters had veered towards the BJP because of their antipathy for the Congress When the Congress is not an option there aren’t too many negative votes to harvest In the 2010 election JD (U) RJD and Congress had contested as rivals But their combined vote share of 50 percent—2260 1885 and 89 per cent respectively—was higher than the 40 percent votes polled in 2014 by the BJP and its allies If pre-poll surveys are getting it right the voting preferences have not changed much A snap poll by ABP-Nielsen in February predicted a win for the anti-Modi alliance The survey found a huge gap of almost 15 percent (56 JD (U)-RJD and 41 BJP+) in the number of people likely to vote for the two coalitions A follow-up survey in June threw up similar figures though the gap seemed to have narrowed a bit Most Backward Castes are nearly 21 percent of Bihar voters Muslims (147) Yadavs (144) Kurmis (5) Keoris and Mahadalits (10) are the other castes that play important roles in an election On paper Yadav’s Muslim-Yadav (MY) vote bank and the support Kumar enjoys among Kurmis and Koeris is formidable To add to this caste combination Kumar is working also on retaining Mahadalits—Musahars Doms and Dusads—who had supported him in the previous election But the equations can change The biggest worry within the JD (U)-Congress camp is how much of Lalu Yadav’s nearly 18 percent vote bank remain faithful to the allies The current belief with the alliance that the minorities will shift completely towards the alliance but the Yadavs may pick and choose their candidates If a sizeable portion of Yadavs doesn’t support candidates contesting on JD (U) and Congress tickets and instead votes for BJP candidates the alliance may suffer heavily In addition if the BJP manages to snare Mahadalits into its camp through its alliance with former CM Jeetan Ram Manjhi Kumar may find the going tough The JD (U) however is confident that not only will its caste-base remain intact; the BJP will lose some of the upper caste support because of Kumar’s popularity and image and the less-than-satisfactory performance of the Central government under Modi In the end the election may be decided by the number of Mahadalits and Yadavs who leave the alliance because of Modi’s appeal and the percentage of upper caste voters who dump the BJP this time because of Kumar’s performance If the exodus of voters from both camps is equal Kumar will become the CM again If only the Yadavs and Mahadalits leave him the BJP would form the next government The outcome will be decided by caste equations but the equations will depend on the charisma of Modi and Kumar Written by Mini Kapoor | New Delhi | Updated: June 1 2014 3:48 am The Vietnamese banh mi is the baguette made airier Top News As we watch agog the streets of Bangkok patrolled by soldiers securing the military takeover it is an apt moment to look at the histories and myths encoded in everyday food It has been recalled this month that Pad Thai owes its popularity to its adoption as the national dish by Thailand’s ultra-nationalist military dictator back in the 1940s Plaek Phibunsongkhram Some have it that the attempt was to curb consumption of rice whose export was (and remains) a key source of income but so popular is the dish around the world that Mina Holland says she’s chosen not to be repetitive and include its recipe in her encyclopedic survey of everyday food The Edible Atlas: Around the World in Thirty-Nine Cuisines A peculiar tension informs this book one that Holland an established food writer consciously plays on between the specialness of everyday food consumed in its native place as it were and its recreation in kitchens elsewhere Part travelogue part personal history (Holland’s father was born in Nigeria her grandmother in Nainital her grandfather retired to Pattaya in Thailand) part literary overview (food-related and other quotes from writers Arundhati Roy on India Orhan Pamuk on Turkey Mario Vargas Llosa on Peru etc) The Edible Atlas strives to show how local cuisine is of its place how a dish catches in its ingredients and recipe geography history custom local temper: “Why do people eat as they do in different parts of the world” How there is no telling when a particular meal or snack will define our recollections of that moment But alongside this handy guide to how to enjoy everyday food thoughtfully and informatively (and always pleasurably) Holland includes recipes for a couple of dishes from that country (or in case of countries with exceptionally rich and varied cuisine India Italy France China etc its different regions) You know the ambition — you know that you will never find a kulcha like those in Amritsar’s dhabas or that pretzel in Munich’s beer gardens but never shall you give up trying to find one that approximates it To read Holland’s book is to be reminded that every cuisine has its narrative In a book for popular readership and with space permitting short introductions she finds different threads For north India for instance the Grand Trunk Road provides a route for surveying food from Kashmir through Punjab and UP and on to Bengal the shift in flavours ingredients and styles of cooking finding reflection in conditions on the ground For Vietnam the colonial backdrop and its geographical location inform its hybrid cuisine perhaps best encapsulated in banh mi (the French baguette made “lighter and airier” so that its thick crust can hold locally available fillings) The food of Italy’s Veneto region becomes comprehensible by dwelling a bit on Venice’s place on old trade routes The traditional taboo on consumption of meat in Japan explains the curious table settings “one soup three sides” (that is a hearty soup surrounded by side dishes of rice pickles and a third that varies) “We don’t cook for one we cook for 10” a Brazilian cook tells Holland highlighting the habit of cooking in just one large pan The hybrid cuisine of Jamaica is of course a reminder of the its violent imperial past but invoking Nobel laureate Derek Alcott Holland says food is one of the aspects of Caribbean life that makes “the sigh of history dissolve” She could add that the ever ongoing attempt to find locally substitutable ingredients to make dishes from elsewhere is also our way of making distance and barriers dissolve minikapoor@expressindiacom This story appeared in print under the headline Food That Travels Well For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsRamu stands in front of a blank white wall paint brush in hand contemplating the words penciled in – “AIADMK – Full” He then moves over to where his paints are kept picks out the green paint and with a thin brush he expertly traces the outline of the AIADMK’s (All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) two-leaf symbol and proceeds with the detailing It is the middle of the afternoon the heat is blazing and he still has another five houses in the Melirippu village in Cuddalore before he moves on to the next village Like Ramu a number of artists across Tamil Nadu have been finding work this election season painting houses with different party symbols For the people of Tamil Nadu their political ideology is a way of life With very little work through the year however artists are forced to forget party preferences in their pursuit of a livelihood In the past few years political rallies and elections have become the only steady income for the dance troupes and artists Getty images Ramu and his family are DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) party members in Villupuram Although he helped with the party’s campaign for the past three elections he still continues to go from village to village painting party symbols on walls across Tamil Nadu “This is the only work I get and I am grateful This is not the time to think of my political leanings” he says as he finishes up the AIADMK symbol and starts on PMK’s (Pattali Makkal Katchi) mango symbol on another wall in the same house “I have been an artist for over 20 years now but now the only work I find is during the elections when the parties want me to paint their symbols on the walls” he says He belongs to an artists’ association which is how he gets contracts to paint party symbols during the elections In another part of the Cuddalore district Jayakumar who is a VCK (Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi) block secretary has a similar job and echoes Ramu’s sentiment He has been painting AIADMK DMK and PMK symbols across the district “As a VCK cadre it goes against the grain for me to paint the PMK symbol but considering this is the only work I get I cannot be fussy” he explains Over the years there have been several clashes between the cadres of the pro-Vanniyar PMK and those from the Dalit-centric VCK Until a decade ago artists like Jayakumar and Ramu used to have flourishing businesses Movie theatres would hire these artists to paint their posters and cutouts “Earlier I used to paint posters of Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan Everyone appreciated my art and people would even offer prayers to these cutouts” said Mathimohan another artist who also belongs to the VCK Now there is very little work for artists throughout the year “Most people prefer digital banners to our artwork because it is cheaper faster to make and is less labour intensive For us this has meant taking up any job we get Most artists now work as house painters” Masilamani an artist from Cuddalore said Painters are not the only professionals who seem to only find work during the elections Azhagu Sundari from the Vetri Namathe troupe has been a dancer all her life Her parents and even her grandparents used to entertain people at temple festivals across the state But with work now scarce their troupe mainly performs only in political rallies Often Azhagu dresses up like MGR and she says it is a hit with the crowd “Most people who are AIADMK followers are ardent fans of MGR and so seeing someone like him on stage drives them crazy” she says Other members of her troupe also attend political rallies of other parties “They dress up like Kalaignar or even PMK’s Ramadoss as a way to get the crowd warmed up before the speeches” Azhagu says In the past few years political rallies have become the only steady income for the troupe Before the Madras High Court banned ‘record’ dances deeming them obscene many members of the troupe had a steady year-round income dancing in temple festivals and other public functions “Many temple officials are now wary of calling us for their festivals because they are not sure if our dancing will be obscene This is our only livelihood so we perform where we can” she said “We have now formed an association to try and break the stereotype that dancers are prostitutes and that our art form is obscene” she explains “There have been some instances where men who attend our shows during the temple festivals have attempted to sexually harass us We are still trying to keep our profession pure and if we hear of any dancers who are behaving in an obscene or vulgar manner people from our association report them to the police” she adds While these artistes have found steady income in the past couple of months once the election fever dies down they are unsure of their financial situation “Whichever party comes to power we still will not have a livelihood Until there is some way for us to find steady income we will continue to live from election to election” Masilamani

Sharma shared a 219-run stand for the second wicket (Source: PTI) Related News Around the 25th over mark after Virat Kohli elected to bat first under the searing Colombo sun it felt like twin double tons had an outside chance The skipper had already raced to a 76-ball hundred and Rohit Sharma was in his 70s The Sri Lankan bowling was being toyed with and England’s world record ODI total of 444 — scored against Pakistan in Nottingham last year — looked under serious threat Four wickets between the 30th and 38th overs — Hardik Pandya and Rohit got out off successive balls against Angelo Mathews — did damage limitation for Sri Lanka but India still got to 375 for five in 50 overs thanks to an unbroken 101-run sixth wicket partnership between Manish Pandey and MS Dhoni The fourth ODI at R Premadasa Stadium on Thursday was all but over as a contest before sundown The target was always beyond Sri Lanka’s reach and they made no attempt to go at it They were reduced to 68/4 in the 16th over and though Mathews scored 70 it was a token attempt to reduce the margin of defeat which eventually was 168 runs The hosts were bowled out with more than seven overs left A 219-run second-wicket partnership between Rohit and Kohli had sucked the life out of the hosts but cricket lovers didn’t mind They were entertained by the best batting of the tour by the India captain The pitch was like a highway the Sri Lankan bowling pedestrian and Kohli’s approach unfettered Coming to the middle after Shikhar Dhawan holed out at deep third man in the second over — the left-hander must have rued the missed opportunity — Kohli started painting a picture The cover drive probably is the best indicator to his batting He plays the shot better than anyone else in world cricket at times seemingly with a touch of compulsion With time Vishwa Fernando will know it’s a dangerous game trying to lure a class act like Kohli with width on the front foot on a dead track that offered virtually zero movement The Sri Lankan left-arm pacer bowled a half-volley outside the off stump; Kohli leaned into it and brought out a sublime cover drive to get going Fernando tried to drag the length back a little but Kohli walked into the delivery and whipped it past mid-off for another four Fernando then made the mistake of bowling on the India skipper’s pads The latter calmly placed it through the gap between mid-on and mid-wicket to have three boundaries on the trot The hosts were already set for a long haul A run feast ensued that occasionally even bordered on the contemptuous Stand-in Sri Lanka captain Lasith Malinga resorted to cutters to stem the run flow but Kohli was having fun in the middle An error of judgment and the subsequent run-out opportunity had been the sole hiccup Kohli saved himself with a dive He romped to his 29th ODI hundred in 76 balls Such was his mastery over the bowling that it looked a mere formality His dismissal for 131 (96 balls 17 fours and two sixes) was an anti-climax A full and wide delivery from Malinga was driven straight to Dilshan Munaweera at sweeper cover Rohit walked down from the non-striker’s end to pat his skipper Malinga on the other hand raised his hand to celebrate his 300th ODI scalp In the context of the game however it was a lucky break that allowed Sri Lanka at least some breathing space Like fast bowlers batsmen too thrive in partnerships Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman always complemented each other Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane do it in the Test team The 50-over format saw the third double century partnerships between Rohit and Kohli on Thursday A little over two months ago in the Champions Trophy semifinal against Bangladesh the two had put on 178 runs for the second wicket without being separated Rohit had scored 123 not out while Kohli remained unbeaten on a run-a-ball 96 On this occasion Kohli played the lead Rohit despite being fresh from an unbeaten 124 in the last game played second fiddle But the best part of his batting was the way he negated Akila Dananjaya Very few play spin better than Rohit in this Indian team and from the visitors’ point of view it was important to gain the psychological upper hand over the ‘mystery’ spinner early in the innings Rohit pulled him to the mid-wicket boundary followed by a six over wide long-on and the threat was negated After reaching his fifty (45 balls) Rohit upped the ante and his next fifty runs came in 40 deliveries He eventually got out to Mathews for 104 off 88 balls – his 13th ODI ton Mathews had removed Pandya promoted to No 4 off his previous delivery And when Dananjaya accounted for KL Rahul three overs later India suddenly had some rebuilding to do Before the start of the match Kohli presented a memento to Dhoni on his 300th ODI appearance After 13 years of international cricket the former captain now appears to have become a master re-builder He did the job brilliantly in the last two games Here in a far more comfortable situation the pitch raise was gradual He didn’t even go for a second run in the penultimate ball of the innings and allowed Pandey who replaced Kedar Jadhav to score his second ODI half-century Dhoni remained unbeaten on 49 off 42 balls He is yet to be dismissed in this series going at an average of infinity When India bowled focus was on debutant Shardul Thakur and chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav who came in for Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal respectively Niroshan Dickwella became the Mumbai seamer’s maiden international scalp Yadav returned with two for 31 in 84 overs For all the
