After winning the auction rights, Red Production Company will turn the book into a 10 × 30 ‘recordable series, which Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, will adapt for screen.

Posted earlier this year, The Echo Chamber follows the privileged Cleverly family as they navigate the jungle of modern life. Not realizing how precarious their privilege is, they are just one tweet away from the disaster.

Five days is all it takes for the Cleverleys’ lives to be turned upside down and crumpled around their ears, proving that to really screw things up, all you need is a cell phone.

Sarah Doole, CEO of Red Production Company, said, “I’ve always loved John Boyne’s beautiful handwriting, but The Echo Chamber was the brightest surprise. It’s hilarious and funny – a caustic, biting satire about the cancellation of culture and modern Britain. It’s a story that absolutely is for now and it takes a writer of skill and John’s confidence to make it successful.

“The madly outrageous and spirited Cleverleys are a family begging to be introduced to the screen and their disgrace is full of the most unexpected twists and surprises. It has been described as a “British Schitt’s Creek on Acid” – and it is! “

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi took part in an event for people with special needs, titled “Different Capacity,” which took place at the Al-Manara center in the Fifth Colony on Sunday.

On this occasion, Daily News Egypt presents the story of Abdelrahman Othman who was the first visually impaired person in Egypt to introduce the computer world to his peers.

Othman was born in the 1960s. He graduated in the 80s of the twentieth century from the Faculty of Languages ​​and Translation of Al-Azhar University and joined the Research and Policy Information Section of the Programs Department news from Egyptian television.

At the age of 19, the boy was destined to lose his sight. Doctors told him that he suffers from “Retinitis pigmentosa”, known in Egypt as “Night blindness”, so he must prepare well to enter the world of the blind, at age 16, during which he tried. to build part of his future while he was seeing, his eyes were still on his new world. It was painful at first, but he tried to adapt quickly, but for this world he was an inspirer who did a great feat immortalized in history.

Othman first applied to join a job as a TV movie translator, but by this time the news predominated in Maspero. The young man passed the tests and won first place among the candidates to begin his journey to Maspero in 1984.

At that time, he was no more than 24 years old, his eyesight started to deteriorate from time to time, but he was correcting the situation, especially since his poor eyesight did not stand in his way, even he was having some difficulties at his job, which he overcame by using magnifying lenses on the one hand, and also Helping some colleagues to write on the other hand.

“The day I lost the ability to read, I said I was officially blind.” In 1994, the young man’s condition deteriorated and he lost his sight permanently, but due to his successes on television, especially in translating films and newsreels, as well as writing documentaries. , no one was able to give it up, so industry news executives were sure they would let them go. This talent will lose them a lot, so “Othman” continued his work in the Maspero building despite the loss of sight.

The problem with Othman was not in his job, so he used his colleagues to help him write programs, given how difficult he was at first, but he got used to it, but the greater difficulty for him was psychological difficulty. His job, but fate was with me in the other.

Othman entered the world of the blind, grieved by what they suffer, that category which reads obsolete tools. In schools, students face major problems until they can get their textbooks, which require a long period of preparation and preparation in Braille.

Also, the cost of books was very expensive, but with the advent of the talking computer, of which “Othman” contributed to his entry into the homeland, but also his development on the method of learning from the manual method to the automatic method.

“The first time a talking computer came to me, I felt its value and it was also at the same time that the Internet coincided with the advent. Before that, blind people had the greatest need to listen to the radio or someone reading a book to them.

In the 1990s, a modern device for assisting the blind appeared in the United States of America called the “talking computer”. Othman learned at the time of the invention, despite its high cost, but decided to buy it with the money he had collected from the start of his work, and the computer cost him around 70,000 pounds to the time.

Othman’s journey did not end with obtaining a computer, but he had a great experience later, as he began to work on the development of the device, which had two programs. different, the first reading the images through the “scanner” and converting them to ringing later, but this voice was in English. Therefore, none of the blind who do not know the English language will be able to use it, and the second is to dictate their scripts to the computer. . The two programs did not work together, so the computer was not reading what it heard.

At first, Othman’s friends played a big role in helping him learn the computer, in addition to the teaching materials he listened to on the Internet, and in 5 months he had mastered the use of the computer .

“The computer was the product of an international company. I called them and told them why not merge the two programs. They told me it was impossible. But there is yet another more difficult task, which is to combine two audio input and output programs into one program.

Othman worked on the device until he succeeded on December 25, 1995, when he remembered having activated the two programs together which were until now present in all computers and phones for blind.

“The idea at the time was new to the world insofar as American friends did not believe it. They told me to film you and send the video to us while you were talking. Everyone was fascinated by Othman’s great achievement, so he was invited to the Mediterranean Media Forum, which was held in Morocco in 1996 when the experience was presented to the public. The world saw this as a unique achievement.

It was from there that a new life began for the blind, not only in Egypt but in the world. Othman, who contributed to this development, was his main motivation for the blind to live like other citizens. They are informed of everything that is happening around them without suffering, they learn without difficulty, they work and contribute to their society like the others.

Has the Covid Shot You? Aren’t you looking forward to winter and – if we’re lucky – lots of rain? Or maybe you’re back in the office and missing the good old days of working from home?

If you’re feeling down, we’ve got the ticket to get you back: six movies that have lifted spirits – and changed lives – for decades. Our guide for these films is longtime San Francisco resident Michael Fox who has dedicated his life studying and writing about films, especially documentaries.

Fox owes his interest in documentaries to his decision to move to San Francisco. When he arrived in the 1980s, locals were producing one innovative documentary after another. These films covered topics as diverse as The Times of Harvey Milk, which tells the story of the gay icon, at Rosie the Riveter, a look at five women who went to work during WWII.

Fox is particularly drawn to six documentaries that both tell very dramatic stories and have revolutionized the genre. He loves them so much that most of them were the subject of a course he recently taught at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in San Francisco, which offers continuing education and social activities. people over 50 years old.

The course, The Great Documentaries, examined films that cover different aspects of modern life and took full advantage of camera techniques and equipment invented in the 1960s.

LET’S START WITH POLITICS

If you’re feeling jaded, maybe even disgusted, with politics today, Fox suggests checking out Primary, an hour-long look at the 1960 contest for the Democratic presidential nomination between John Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey. It’s guaranteed to make you nostalgic for the good old days, as it shows how dramatically different politics was then – much more commercial, personal, and even intimate in a time not shaped – or perhaps poisoned – by the talking heads of cable TV, internet and social media. “Yes, we all know things were different in the 60s, but just How? ‘Or’ What different will be a shock to anyone watching this movie, ”Fox said. “When this is over, you’ll probably also be wondering, ‘Can someone please bring back the good old days? “”

POPULAR ENTERTAINMENT

Do not look back gives us an in-depth look at young Bob Dylan, whom we meet while touring the UK in 1965. The world was changing and few people personified that change more than the pop legend. In more innocent times, we see him – and Joan Baez – breaking molds, struggling (and tormenting) while singing songs that revolutionized popular entertainment.

WAR AND PEACE

The end of our 30-year war in Afghanistan makes this a particularly good time to watch a 1974 epic about the Vietnam War,Hearts and minds. The film immediately rids us of any idea that Afghanistan was unique, unprecedented, even different from the history many of us have lived. “Most telling to our eyes and ears are images of politicians and military leaders lying, lying again, then lying again as ordinary people – Vietnamese and Americans – suffer and die,” Fox explained. “Today’s problems did not start with the invasion of Afghanistan, they date back much further, at least until the 1950s.”

REALITY VERSUS ILLUSION

In the age of so-called fake news, it’s hard to find a more resounding movie thanF for False by the legendary Orson Wells. This documentary takes every convention never invented about movies and turns them upside down, a tip that will leave you wondering what’s wrong and what’s real. The film focuses on the legendary Clifford Irving, whom we first meet through his partner Elmyr de Hory, a notorious art forger – and very proud and outspoken. Irving then goes on to make Hory better by creating a massive counterfeit himself, an alleged “biography” of industry mogul Howard Hughes. Guaranteed to make your head spin.

HOME AND FAMILY LIFE

Next :Gray gardens, the legendary 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles that gives viewers a sad and hilarious take on the life of Eddie Beale Sr. and his daughter, Eddie Beale, Jr.. As well as introducing us to two breathtaking weird people and their amazing home, it also raises a bunch of really awkward questions: “Is it appropriate for us to watch what’s going on here, for example,” Fox asked. “What is the exact nature of the weird and poisonous parent-child relationship that we see in this movie? And how did two once wealthy and socially important people end up in the situation we see right in front of us? ”

LABOR RELATIONS AND LARGE COMPANIES

Harlan County, United Statesdebuted in the 1970s, but home stronger than ever at the age of one percent and ultra-wealthy tycoons like Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. The film tells the story of a strike by coal miners, the ordinary people who started and led it, and the efforts of a powerful corporation to crush it. A sin Hearts and minds, here too, we see a lot of lies, not from military and political leaders, but from corporate titans who insist that the health of their workers is their number one concern – while they are doing all they can. ‘they can to fight against the improvement of wages and working conditions.

This is our quick overview of six expert-curated films. More information on courses taught by Michael Fox and others is available from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in San Francisco.

The general support fund for the competition is 300,000 AZN.

Azerbaijani cinema has become an internationally recognized modern art, enjoying great popularity and recognition in international film festivals, which frequently award domestic films.

In recent years, more than 300 films and 1,200 documentaries, as well as hundreds of cartoons have been made.

Shortly after the Lumière brothers of France invented cinematography, a device for making films in 1895, Russian photographer and cameraman Alexander Michon began shooting films that depicted everyday life in Baku.

The first silent short of Azerbaijani cinematography “You are caught” was shown in Baku on August 2, 1898. Audiences witnessed a historic event – the birth of Azerbaijani cinematography.

To honor this historic day, the national leader Heydar Aliyev signed on December 18, 2000 an ordinance declaring August 2 the professional holiday of cinema workers – Azerbaijani Cinema Day.

At present, it is planned to carry out systemic reforms to develop and modernize the cinematographic art in Azerbaijan.

The Ministry of Culture set up the Azerbaijan Filming Commission in June.

The National Filming Commission focuses on promoting the Azerbaijani film industry at the international level.

Azerbaijan can become a new filming location for foreign filmmakers thanks to the country’s historical and cultural monuments and beautiful landscapes. Thus, filming in Azerbaijan can also contribute to the country’s economy and tourism industry.

There is a surprising sense of familiarity waiting up a few flights of stairs in the building where Pauline’s Rooftop lives. The location is halfway between Lazimpat and Maharajgunj, more or less in the heart of Kathmandu; huge open windows in the interior bar area reveal the somewhat bleak landscape of modern Kathmandu with its dark residential buildings. Yet the interior space still exudes privacy and coziness with comfy, leather-bound low chairs that are lit by warm twilight lights.

A recent addition to the myriad of F&B industry companies in the Valley, Pauline’s Rooftop is best defined as the bar where you feel at home, literally and figuratively. The outdoor seating area is no more picturesque than the inside; surrounded by high rise buildings, you remember you are still in the middle of the concrete jungle that is now Kathmandu. Still, the bar’s rustic layout is a conscious choice – an antithesis to common perceptions of valley bars, clubs, and cafes as a chic venue filled with intricate, modern decor with a dazzling array of lights.

“Originally, we wanted this place to become a crossroads after the works; a place where you can come, leave your worries at the door, relax and enjoy delicious cocktails and food, ”says Pauline Driard, namesake of the bar and mentor of the current management team.

Opened at the start of the multi-month lockdown in early 2020, Pauline’s Rooftop has only seen about a year and a few months of operation so far. However, the initial philosophy of an afterwork has already had its flaws. The mood during the weekends became more energetic than expected; from an afterwork venue, the bar was transformed into a lively party spot. While the bar’s personality was heading to uncharted destinations, the management team have now fully embraced its nascent dual identity.

“To be fair, the bar is now a weekday afterwork venue and a weekend party spot,” admits Driard. “When we started we thought that if we had had good food, good staff and a good atmosphere, this would have been enough. But unfortunately that didn’t turn out to be true, ”she reflects.

As such, the bar frequently organizes various events and activities to enliven the monotony and seduce customers. A daily happy hour that starts from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. allows for an individual offer on a selection of drinks and cocktails. On Wednesdays the bar enters a relaxed atmosphere with live music from local bands. Sometimes activities like blind beer tasting, Saturday barbecue nights, and Friday maki nights rock the mood. Screenings of documentaries and films are also frequent; ‘Children of the SnowLand’ is scheduled to premiere on Sunday, December 5th. There are also special cocktails on the menu, the theme depending on the season, festivals and events.

Naresh Shrestha, owner of Pauline’s Rooftop and longtime colleague of Driard in his previous projects, says: “It has been a difficult trip to manage the bar. The unfortunate timing of the bar opening created a lot of stress for us, but we made good use of the downtime during the closings to strategize our business plans. There are always events and activities going on so regulars always have something new to look forward to, adds Shrestha.

The bar prides itself on its cocktail knowledge and expertise, with a wide selection of wines and beers. However, cocktails are a foreign arrival in Nepalese cuisine and the Nepalese crowds had the misconception that cocktails were limited to sweet flavors, which the bar aspires to change. Most of the cocktail ideas and experiments are concocted by the brain behind the bar: Amrit Tamang, head bartender at Pauline’s Rooftop. “There are more flavors in a cocktail than just sweet and sour,” he says. After spending five years working in a bar in Australia, Tamang returned to Nepal and worked at Pauline’s Rooftop for about 10 months.

The transition from working at a bar abroad to working at a bar at Tamang has been difficult to say the least. “Bars and cocktails here automatically have a negative connotation. Even my family members aren’t comfortable working in a bar, ”Tamang explains. “Still, it’s my passion and I love the whole experience of working in a bar and creating cocktails. Making cocktails is also an art form, but in Nepal, unlike in the West, bartenders are not recognized. ”

In an industry known for its high turnover, the usual tendency for hospitality workers is to gain some work experience in high-end catering establishments and fly abroad as soon as possible. However, Tamang and Shrestha are both exceptions to the rule. Both experienced the allures of overseas employment but returned home to seek their own place in the Nepalese hospitality industry.

“In Australia, I would look at the top 100 bars in the world. Most of them are said to be in Spain, UK, Australia, China, USA, Singapore, etc. I couldn’t seem to find the name of a Nepalese bar, even in the top 500. I used to think that maybe I could change that, ”says Tamang.

And the passion that burns in Tamang is evident in his demeanor and aura. When he begins to describe the ideas and concepts behind the drinks, he delves into the origin of the base drink and its history, the meaning of each ingredient and the overall flavor profile. When he’s behind the bar making a drink, he’s like a child dropped into a toy department. His eyes light up and the pleasure he feels permeates the atmosphere of the bar. “Anyone can make a good drink, but a good bartender can connect with people. Sometimes people come to a bar to have someone to talk to, and I also like interacting with people, ”he says.

Right now, the special’s menu is on the theme of the winter season with “Winter is coming”. The cocktails are named after characters from the Game of Thrones series; Daenerys Targaryen / House Buttered Rhum, The Lannisters / Rum Eggnog, Jon Snow / Classic Irish Coffee, etc.

Recommended drinks and snacks:

GnT clarified

Ingredients: Gin infused with kiwi clarified with coconut milk, lime syrup, citrus fruits.

One of the best-selling drinks on the menu, Clarified GnT is a well-balanced drink perfect for a sunny day. Served in a margarita glass, the drink is clear and produces a mild aftertaste as the clarified gin combines perfectly with the lime syrup. The drink draws on the flavors and smells of citrus with gin, lime and orange zest used as a garnish.

Price: Rs 790

Magic mushroom

Ingredients: Vodka infused with black mushrooms, Caribbean falernum, citrus fruits.

A drink that stands out from the rest of the pack. Most of the time, cocktails experience sweet and sour and rarely bitter tastes. However, this drink tries to bring out an unexpected taste: umami. The vodka is infused with dried black mushrooms (also known as Shiitake mushrooms) which help add a depth of umami flavor to the drink. Served in a highball / rock glass, the drink is topped with a frothy layer and topped with a dried black mushroom.

Price: Rs 790

Tea in Havana

Ingredients: White rum, dry vermouth, blue tea, apple and lime syrup, sparkling water

A feast for the eyes and the mouth, Tea in Havana is a drink from the limited special menu but can be made any day to order. The idea was born during a tea-bar experimentation event, says Tamang. Served in a wine glass, the drink is pale pink in color, and pieces of the leaves – dried rose petals and rose leaves, fresh mint and pea flower – are used as a garnish on the outside of the glass. It contains butterfly pea flower tea, which is a caffeine-free tea also known as blue tea.

Price: Rs 790

Ham and blue cheese toast

One of Pauline’s Garden’s popular snacks – a previous Pauline business – is making its way onto the bar’s limited menu. Perfect pairing with cocktails, the toast consists of slices of toast topped with pieces of ham, blue cheese and diced tomatoes.

Price: Rs 300

An international project led by Monash University found convicts sent to Australia engaged in collective action for better wages and working conditions as early as the 1820s, showing that the origins of unionism and the labor movement go back further than didn’t think so.

Conviction Politics, a four-year international collaboration between Australian, British and Irish universities, museums, archives and unions found through strikes, refusals to work and eat, mass escapes and even mutinies and the Forming unions, convicts demonstrated the early emergence of political and social democracy in Australia, with collective action in the 1830s on par with the great strikes of the 1890s.

The project analyzed digitized convict files, also examining the experiences of more than 3,600 political prisoners transported to Australia as convicts for protest, democratic reform, media freedom, trade unionism and the anti-colonial revolution.

The results have been brought together in a one-of-a-kind digital history project, which will be launched by CUTA Secretary Sally McManus today Thursday, December 2, with the reveal of a vast online transmedia hub hosting mini-documentaries, data visualizations, short films and long readings and music.

The event is part of the UK / Australia 2021-22 season, a collaboration between the British Council and the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Conviction Politics – through innovative media produced by Roar Film – captures the political impact and collective resistance of the work brought to Australia by British and Irish convicts as well as indigenous convicts from Australia, New Zealand and beyond who resisted the British Empire.

The project is led by Associate Professor Tony Moore of Monash’s School of Media, Film and Journalism.

“Conviction Politics draws a progressive new line from Australia’s colonial past to the present, demonstrating links between protesters and reformers who deeply marked both their homeland and their place of exile, explaining why egalitarianism and solidarity are deeply rooted in our DNA, “said Associate Professor Moore.

“Our legacy of exploitation and resistance to this treatment has a lot to teach us at this political time – when nearly 2.5 million Australians are employed as casuals, when unions and wages come under attack from politicians and some companies, when automation and worker surveillance intensifies, when housing is once again unaffordable for many, and when citizens’ rights are eroded in the name of national security.

“Essentially, this project reveals the forgotten champions of rights that modern Australians and Britons take for granted, and brings Australian history to life for the next generation.”

Among the political prisoners transported from the British Empire to Australia from 1788 to 1868 were journalists and political activists accused of sedition, as well as industrial and rural protesters, trade unionists, rebels and revolutionaries, including many have become reformers, union organizers. , media influencers, agitators and even government leaders in their place of exile.

The project stands out for its interdisciplinarity and strong approach to digital media, bringing together media and historical studies experts with information technology and design specialists from Monash’s innovative SensiLab to produce interactive data visualizations and Immersive virtual and augmented reality experiences from the past of Australian convicts.

“Australia’s first industrial crisis brought significant gains for convicts, putting the nation on a much more democratic course than it would have been otherwise,” University Professor Hamish Maxwell-Stewart said. from New England which is part of the project.

The transmedia center also offers 100 mini-documentaries adapted for smartphones, an interactive atlas, songs of convicts, poetry, novels, brochures and art, data analyzes, educational resources and materials for a traveling digital exhibition.

“The conclusion of the first stage of the project and the creation of the transmedia hub are representative of the ability of Conviction Politics to overcome international borders and institutional silos, a sign of hope that creative collaborative work could continue during the bottlenecks of the pandemic. Said Professor Moore.

Conviction Politics: Investigating the Convict Routes of Australian Democracy, was funded by an ARC Linkage project grant of $ 757,205 over four years, with additional funding of $ 310,000 in cash and $ 1,094,251 in kind provided by partners industry, including the screen production house Roar Film, the NSW Teachers Federation, The Union Education Foundation, Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office, the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union, The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, the National Museum of Australia and in the United Kingdom, the Trade Union Congress, the People’s History Museum and the National Records of Scotland.

The academic partners of the project are Monash University, University of New England, Australian Catholic University, Griffith University, University of NSW and, internationally, University of Wales. South and University College Dublin.
