A unique initiative including a photo exhibition to showcase the local biodiversity and cultural history of the region is underway at Hadinaaru village in Nanjangud taluk of Mysuru district.

This is to create opposition to the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) proposal to acquire 1,057 acres of land in and around Hadinaaru.

During jester

The temporary exhibition was set up to coincide with the jatre mahotsava temple of Bilikere Mahadeshwaraswami which attracts thousands of people from the area every year.

‘Nodi Banni Nammura’ (Come…see our village) is set on land near the temple and features dozens of photographs, posters and printed materials providing snapshots of the biodiversity and cultural heritage that villagers could lose if the land acquisition was authorized.

Kiran, one of the stakeholders opposed to KIADB’s proposed move, said the exhibit had a tremendous response and many locals were unaware of the local history, heritage and of diversity which they believe should be preserved.

The exhibit documents in detail the number of lakes, the mounds, the legends associated with them, and the folklore that has evolved and is now part of the local culture. Also, it contains a wealth of detail on the number of bird species that have been documented. Villagers are being asked to reflect on their future and the challenges they might face in the event of land acquisition and eviction, Kiran said.

Of hills and lakes

About the Hulimavu mound in the vicinity, the organizers were careful to point out that it is home to almost 450 species of trees and cited the details of Flora of Mysore, published by two scholars from Mysore University in 1981.

Another nearby hill is Nittegudda and the exhibit highlights that black-naped hare, chital, jungle cat, Indian golden jackal, leopards and butterflies such as purple rose, blue gram and coster fawn have been documented. Efforts have been made to trace the history and legends associated with the Bilikere Mahadeshwaraswami Temple and the culture that developed around it.

Likewise, details of Lake Hadinaaru have been highlighted in addition to providing a snapshot of the biodiversity it hosts. The lake hosts nearly 145 species of birds, including migratory birds from different parts of the world which have been highlighted as ”our guests from Mongolia and Russia” in reference to the bar-headed goose which flock to the lake every year during the winter.

More than 15,000 people visited the exhibition which will end on Wednesday.

Initiative to Declare Traditional Midwifery as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Yucatán – The Yucatan Times https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/initiative-to-declare-traditional-midwifery-as-intangible-cultural-heritage-of-yucatan-the-yucatan-times/ Thu, 17 Nov 2022 17:19:46 +0000 https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/initiative-to-declare-traditional-midwifery-as-intangible-cultural-heritage-of-yucatan-the-yucatan-times/ Deputy Fabiola Loeza Novelo proposed, this November 16, an initiative to declare the traditional practice of midwifery in Yucatan as intangible cultural heritage of the State, thinking that this would contribute to the recognition of this work in order to preserve it.

Deputy Fabiola Loeza Novelo proposed, this November 16, an initiative to declare the traditional practice of midwifery in Yucatan as intangible cultural heritage of the State, thinking that this would contribute to the recognition of this work in order to preserve it.

From the legislator’s point of view, this work is important because it includes not only the reception of babies, but also pregnancy monitoring and post-pregnancy care, so declaring it as such would contribute to its recognition and preservation with an approach to belonging.

In the cities, she specifies, the follow-up of the stages of the pregnancy is generally done by public or private consultation; however, within the state, such reviews are done with the women of the Mayan community.

“These women are heirs to an ancestral culture linked to the traditional roots of childbirth,” she said.

The traditional Yucatan midwife, she sensitized, “symbolizes an emotional bond between women and the original roots of the Mayab”, who have received a gift from generation to generation and have an apprenticeship in favor of women and infants.

“They are also the guarantors of timely access to care, care and protection. These midwives are not only present during the birth of the baby, but also throughout the gestation period; they are responsible for giving massages, checkups and specific instructions to expectant mothers and fathers on how best to take care of the pregnancy, she explained.

Until three years ago, she explained, there were more than 180 midwives in Yucatán, as local Mayan indigenous women learned; “but I’m sure that in 2022 there will be many more” and she believes that we must recognize them, as well as train them.

“The importance of traditional midwifery practice is so great that each year more than 17,000 births are attended by rural midwives, babies who not only receive but also accompany, because together with mothers and fathers they attend the consultations with empathy and a good disposition”, Fabiola Loeza Novelo concluded.

Pink lagoons and flamingos: the hidden gems of Torrevieja in Spain https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/pink-lagoons-and-flamingos-the-hidden-gems-of-torrevieja-in-spain/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 17:47:10 +0000 https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/pink-lagoons-and-flamingos-the-hidden-gems-of-torrevieja-in-spain/ The Spanish Costa Blanca is best known for its Mediterranean climate, beautiful beaches and water sports.

The Spanish Costa Blanca is best known for its Mediterranean climate, beautiful beaches and water sports.

Just south of Alicante is the resort town of Torrevieja, popular with northern Europeans seeking year-round sunshine.

In this episode of Explore, we leave our deckchairs and discover a lesser-known side of the seaside town, hiking and biking trails in a magnificent nature reserve with a surprising cultural heritage of the city.

Hidden heritage

Torrevieja means “old tower” in Spanish and the town takes its name from a watchtower built to defend it from pirate attacks in the Middle Ages.

Although the original tower no longer exists, visitors can explore its “twin”, the well-preserved Torre del Moro, located along the coastal road leading out of town. Vacationers who venture away from the beaches and up the hill are rewarded with spectacular views of the coast and the Mediterranean.

Torrevieja began as a fishing village and the town’s statue, the Bella Lola (Beautiful Lola) honors the wives of those fishermen and sailors lost at sea.

“La Bella Lola represents long waits and uncertainty,” says local tour guide Maria José Minguez Mateo. “Waiting for that person, that loved one, to come back from those long journeys. Where sometimes they came back from and unfortunately other times they didn’t”

Maria José’s family has lived in Torrevieja for generations and she is passionate about sharing the treasures of her hometown.

“There are many interesting things to see in Torrevieja” describes Maria José.

“If you go to the center of the city, there is the Church of the Immaculate Conception with its square, then there are the pedestrian streets, and the Casino, which is an emblematic building, it is very nice.

History of salt lagoons

Torrevieja is surrounded by two beautiful pink and green natural saltwater lagoons, which form the “Salinas” or salt pans.

The use of salt here dates back to Roman times but it was in the early 19th century that it became the center of the salt industry in Spain, transforming the small fishing village of Torrevieja.

It is today the leading salt producer in Europe, with more than 600,000 tonnes extracted per year. Much of it is used to salt the roads of northern Europe in winter.

Visitors can take a tourist train from the city center to see the salt mines and enjoy the impressive pink lagoon. The pink tint which is completely natural would be due to a micro-algae which lives in the water.

Scenic nature trails

The salt pans are located in a beautiful natural park, the Parque Natural de las Lagunas de la Mata y Torrevieja, which is a protected nature reserve.

It is a paradise for cyclists and walkers, offering several trails to explore the unique ecosystem.

Francisco José Martinez Garcia is the director of the park and describes what distinguishes the flora and fauna of the park.

“Around the lagoon, there are very particular plants because they come from very saline soils, so these plants form a priority habitat for the European Union.

It’s also a paradise for bird watchers, home to over a hundred different species, including flamingos.

“On the island, an island that we have, you can see flamingos that were born this year because they are a bit dark, they haven’t acquired that pink color yet,” says Francisco.

Delicious local cuisine

No visit to the Valencia region is complete without sampling its culinary delights.

Local restaurants source their fruit and vegetables from the Vega Baja, a large plain just inland from Torrevieja. Its fertile soil and warm climate all year round make it the market garden of Europe.

Everything is served with local products and the fresh flavors are mouth-watering.

The region is also famous for its fish and seafood and the local paella is not to be missed!

“This paella is very typical of Torrevieja, the Costa Blanca and the Valencian Community (Region),” explains Torrevieja waiter Manuel Patricio Perez Cisternas, “Seafood paella with clams, prawns, langoustines and small shelled prawns. It is very popular with tourists.”

Getting off the beaten track in Torrevieja is a delightful experience. From stunning nature walks to fascinating history and delicious local food, this part of the Costa Blanca has it all.

Jhe Akwa Ibom community in Abuja held the 2nd edition of its 2022 International Cultural Festival to showcase the cultural heritage and diversity of the state.

Lorcan and Rafferty among the few Irish first names in the United States https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/lorcan-and-rafferty-among-the-few-irish-first-names-in-the-united-states/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 09:43:27 +0000 https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/lorcan-and-rafferty-among-the-few-irish-first-names-in-the-united-states/ Two unusual Irish names are on the list of the rarest baby names used by American parents… do you know someone with this name?

Two unusual Irish names are on the list of the rarest baby names used by American parents… do you know someone with this name?

The world’s largest baby name website, Nameberry, has shared the list of unique names used by less than 25 US-based parents in 2021.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, CEO Pamela Redmond said: “It’s hard for parents to agree on a name because a name says a lot about your personal and family identity.

“A name signals your feelings about your family, your cultural heritage, your style, your desire to fit in or stand out in society.

“And a name is a one-time decision that lasts your child’s lifetime – at least unless they decide to change it!”

Two Irish names – Loracan and Rafferty – appear on the list of rarest names:

lorcan

According to Nameberry, only 13 baby boys were given this name by American parents in 2021.

This name can mean “silent” or “fierce”. Lorcan was the name of Brian Boru’s grandfather as well as two kings of Leinster. It was probably used as a nickname for a “brave warrior”.

Rafferty

Nameberry says only 18 baby boys were given that name in 2021 by American parents.

A classic Irish name meaning “flood, abundance, prosperity”, was used by Jude Law and Sadie Frost for their son Rafferty Law, now a model musician, in 1996.

Raff and Rafe can be used as nicknames – much easier to spell than the original form of the name: O’Raighbheartaigh.

Other names on the top ten list include Hester, Romilly, Bee, Grover and Ottilie.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., November 4, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) – Members of the Los Angeles Guatemala community gathered at the Church of Scientology Los Angeles this weekend for a ceremony and Fiambre – a 500-year-old Guatemalan custom which families join in by creating a huge platter of food which is then shared by all. It takes place every year as part of the Day of the Dead celebration to remember and celebrate the lives of deceased loved ones.

This year’s Fiambre weighed 900 pounds and is considered the largest ever created outside the borders of Guatemala. It included 80 ingredients ranging from a variety of meats and seafood to vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, spices, juice, and an oil and vinegar dressing. This was followed by a traditional Guatemalan dessert made with ayote, a winter squash native to Guatemala, flavored with cinnamon and a cane sugar product called panela.

Los Angeles County is home to more than 200,000 Guatemalans, making it the largest Guatemalan community in the United States – a community that has grown by more than 25% over the past decade.

Guatemalan-American community leaders believe in the importance of promoting the traditions, values ​​and culture of the land of their ancestors some 2,700 miles away.

With entire generations growing up with little contact with their roots, a traditional Guatemalan Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration is one way to preserve those customs and keep the culture alive. Organizers believe that sharing the community’s cultural heritage is essential to preserving children’s sense of identity and instilling unity and national pride in them.

As the families created the beautiful Fiambre, mural artist Oscar de Salcaja created a chalk painting in the parking lot of the Church of Scientology celebrating the culture of Guatemala.

“Thank you to the Church of Scientology for providing a place where the traditions of our country are kept alive,” said Walter Batres, leader of the Guatemalan Migrant Network. “We want to preserve our heritage here in the United States and pass it on to our children. This is the second year that we have been able to hold our Fiambre here in your church and we are grateful.
