Ludhiana, November 21

The College of Fisheries (COF) of Guru Angad Dev University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (GADVASU) organized a fish festival on the occasion of World Fisheries Day to promote the conservation of aquatic ecosystems for beneficial long-term socio-economics.

The festival was inaugurated by Vice Chancellor Dr Inderjeet Singh. Fish products of various types were exhibited and sold during the festival to promote fish consumption among residents.

Dr. Meera Ansal, Dean, COF, said it is recommended to eat fish once or twice a week to meet the body’s omega 3 needs.

“Fish contains many nutrients necessary for proper growth and development, including protein, iodine, and various vitamins and minerals,” she said.

Omega 3 fatty acids also help lower triglycerides, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of stroke, she added.

In addition to fish and shrimp products such as fish sticks, fish cutlets, fish balls, fish sausages, marinated shrimp, fish/shrimp pickles and fish soup; live edible fish and ornamental fish were also sold at the festival. The presentation of live ornamental fish and aquariums delighted ornamental fish lovers and schoolchildren, Dr Ansal.

Over 20,000 people flocked to Ulverston during the last weekend of November 2004, helping to make the sixth annual Dickensian Christmas Festival a huge success.

It was like stepping into a scene from a Dickensian novel with smartly dressed gentlemen and elegant ladies in period costumes walking the cobbled streets.

Against the backdrop of festive carols and the smell of roasted chestnuts in the air, the two-day festival, sponsored by the Evening Mail, was a great success.

Marking the start of Ulverston’s Christmas season, the festival offered plenty of entertainment, with marching bands, choirs, a flea circus, street entertainment, Punch and Judy, street organs, a railroad at steam and a funfair.

It was estimated that more than 10,000 people attended on Saturday. The huge crowd gathered to see the grand procession around the city.

Santa Claus appeared on a horse-drawn wagon from the brewery and Bill Sikes and other Dickensian characters marched through the streets.

There was a period costume competition with prizes for the best adults and children in costume and Ulverston Mayor Cllr John Birkett turned on the Christmas tree lights in Market Place.

This was followed by the lighting of tree lights in County Square during a service for St Mary’s Hospice Celebrate A Life appeal, which raised around £20,000.

Ulverston City Clerk Bill Penny voted the festival a great success.

He said, “It’s been really good. The crowds have been huge.”

Peter Winston, festival secretary, said: “From all the feedback I’ve had from traders I think we had record crowds on Saturday.

“Looking at the weekend as a whole, we had well over 20,000 visitors and that could well be approaching our record number.

“It was definitely a great weekend with a great atmosphere.

“People certainly got into the spirit of the occasion. I was very impressed with how many people came out in period costume.”

Visitors came from as far away as America, China, France and Belgium and coaches came from all over northern England.

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas, as the Council unveils the holiday season with three free community events guaranteed to spark joy in even the biggest curmudgeon!

Share in the wonder as the town’s Christmas tree comes to life at Light Up the Night, hit the right notes during Christmas Busker Days, and settle in for a Christmas favorite during the outdoor Family Movie Night.

Mayor Neil Brown says large crowds will be expected this year as the community takes advantage of the chance to celebrate without covid restrictions.

“We can see from recent events, like the A&P Show, that people are more than ready to come out and be part of an occasion, and we expect our Christmas festival to draw exceptional crowds. “

Kicking off the festival is the official lighting of the city’s giant Christmas tree at Light Up the Night. People are invited to join Santa Claus, the elves and the Hokonui team at East Street on December 2 from 6 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring a folding chair and settle in for an evening of music, festive lighting, and entertainment in the CBD.

There will be plenty for everyone, with three kids’ activity zones and a range of tempting deals available from nearby food trucks. The Christmas tree will be lit around 9:30 p.m.

Hokonui will hold a charity auction before the party, selling the opportunity to press the button on the Christmas tree lights. Money raised will go to the Phat Bastards Bike Club, whose members are running a 48-hour charity ride in the New Year to raise money for Farming Families, Hospice Mid Canterbury and Methven Search and Rescue.

A touch of Hollywood arrives at the Ashburton Estate Picnic Ground on Saturday, December 17 for Christmas Family Movie Night. Starting at 6 p.m., the whole family will enjoy this special outdoor screening of a holiday classic. Moviegoers should bring chairs or blankets to sit on and come dressed for the occasion in their finest Christmas-inspired attire!

Although admission is completely free, the Hokonui team will be collecting canned food donations for the Salvation Army Food Bank, which will help local families weather the holiday season. Members of the Ashburton Youth Council will also get into the spirit of things by handing out free popcorn. The film itself is still under wraps at this time, but with Council staff currently finalizing details with the distributor, the community can expect an announcement soon.

The mayor is also encouraging people to support their local retailers as Christmas approaches. Christmas Busker Days will see a selection of local talent spreading Christmas cheer through music for CBD shoppers on Friday December 23 and Saturday December 24, between 10am and 2pm.

“It’s a good opportunity to come and enjoy the atmosphere and buy local. It’s been a few uncertain years due to covid, but now things are back to normal, and we have a downtown we can be proud of.

The Nights Of Lights Christmas Festival is kindly supported by Hokonui. More information about the events can be found at nightsoflights.co.nz

This year, Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) falls on Sunday, November 20. It is, overall, a grim occasion meant to recognize the lives lost to violence: a gun safety group has estimated that the murder rate among trans Americans — specifically, trans women in color – doubled in four years.

But while TDOR is meant to illustrate how dangerous it can be to be trans or gender non-conforming, a slew of trans-cultural events heading into next weekend demonstrate the joy, beauty and resilience of this community through film, dance and live performance.

Kicking off this weekend is the 25th anniversary of the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival, the oldest such event in the country. This year it’s a hybrid event with two screenings at the Mission’s Roxie Theater on November 10 and 11, followed by digital offerings until November 20. With short films that deal with parenthood, Mayan deities and the difficulty of finding a public restroom, the festival also comes on the heels of an election in which transgender Americans found themselves targeted and criminalized.

“Since our founding, we’ve been a politicized festival,” said artistic director Shawna Virago. “We try to be mindful of this moment in America and the fact that this year over 100 anti-trans bills have been introduced in state legislatures across the country. It happens everywhere. »

True to its long lineage, the festival combines recent work on contemporary people with reassessments of trans icons and various gender rebels, in particular, beauty presidenta look at Joan Jett Blakk, the drag activist who ran for president in 1992.

“I was thrilled that we received this submission,” Virago said. “I remember that campaign very well and believe that Joan Jett Black was an important cultural figure, physically putting her body on the line. For a black, queer, gender fabulous person to show up at the Democratic National Convention and demand Airtime was extraordinary.

Next, THEYFRIEND, the world’s premier arts festival that elevates and celebrates non-binary (or “enby”) artists, returns Wednesday through Saturday, November 16-19. Founded by artist Kevin “Vin” Seaman, this year’s multi-day event at Oasis, El Rio, Brava Theater for the Arts and other venues represents a significant expansion from 2021’s shorter run.

Co-hosted with artists Edgar Fabián Frías and KB Boyce, THEYFRIEND features over 20 non-binary artists during multiple showcases and a happy hour (November 13-19), featuring video performances, live music and more.

Finally, the new dance and storytelling work of trans choreographer Sean Dorsey, The lost art of dreaming, is coming to Z Space for four shows (November 18-20). A meditation on pleasure and hope for a better future performed by five trans or queer identified dancers, it relies heavily on the beautiful costumes and sometimes transgressive partnership that has won Sean Dorsey Dance awards and praise for decades. years.

Nearly 60 years after the Compton Cafeteria Riot launched the modern struggle for LGBTQ+ liberation, San Francisco hasn’t become a haven for gender nonconforming people by accident. It took hard work and vision, and these festivals and shows are here to show how it’s done. Or, as Virago put it, “It’s the moments that are responsible for the things we take for granted.”

The 28th Black Harvest Film Festival, November 4-20 in person at the Gene Siskel Film Center, won’t be like the previous 27.

Co-founder and chief programmer Sergio Mims died in October, a significant loss for the Chicago film. On opening night and throughout this year’s festival, tributes to the Mims should serve to remind audiences of the unique combination of curator, critic, educator and cinephile.

Mims worked extensively on programming in the last months of his life. Film Center Director of Programming Rebecca Fons and Programming Intern Nick Leffel looked at this year’s submission pool and finalized the schedule. But the results, range and spirit are pure Sergio.

“His influence and curation runs through Black Harvest,” Fons told me Thursday. From the start, she said, a 30th anniversary screening of the Reginald Hudlin/Eddie Murphy comedy “Boomerang” (7 p.m., Nov. 20) topped the last of Mims’ stimulus priorities.

“It was always her choice for closing night,” Fons noted, and it will be an opportunity for audiences to “come dressed in your best ’90s style,” as the Film Center’s website puts it, for a post-screening reception.

Two other key titles from the last 50 years of mainstream black cinema — that of director Sidney Poitier “Buck and the Preacher” (6 p.m. Nov. 9) and director Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X” (7:15 p.m., Nov. 19) — expanding the titles of this year’s repertoire. There’s also a rarity once considered lost: the restored 1973 Oakland crime drama “King of Solomon”, screening at 9 p.m. on November 11. Chicago’s seminal title “Cooley High” (8:00 p.m. Nov. 16) brings it home, though it’s not the only Chicago film included in this year’s lineup of new and old features, shorts programs, events and receptions .

A 30th anniversary screening of the comedy takes place this month at the Black Harvest <a class=Film Festival in Chicago. ” src=”https://www.chicagotribune.com/resizer/z-aqFB1Mj08SJNFRC7Q00HhkqAg=/1440×0/filters:format(jpg):quality(70)/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/tronc/5PAMMTYJNX7YSXGDVHWVUEHKAM.jpg” width=”1440″ height=”0″ loading=”lazy”/>

Example: If you missed the PBS premiere of “American Masters” earlier this year from “Marian Anderson: The whole world in her hands” an exceptionally well-directed documentary by Illinois native Rita Coburn Whack, Black Harvest gives her a well-deserved showcase (6:15 p.m., November 6).

Mims has always had his eye on local talent. He also knew a lot about classical and operatic music. For many reasons, Fons said, Marian Anderson’s documentary, an artfully polished portrayal of the great contralto, was “the very first film that Sergio said he wanted to include this year.”

Mims and Fons spent April to June this year looking at submissions for the 2022 festival, Fons said, “getting together regularly to talk about what we liked and what we thought was a good fit. Our conversations were varied and usually included industry conversations and thoughts on new movies in theaters that we were both planning to see We inevitably ended up talking politics and shaking our heads, but the conversation always started and ended by a movie.

Friday’s opening night program, hosted by NBC-5’s LeeAnn Trotter, includes a program of shorts; the presentation of the Black Harvest Legacy Award, presented this year to Sharon King, producer, casting director, author and graduate of Columbia College and Harpo Productions; and the first of the festival’s tributes to the Mims.

The taste, of course, is bittersweet. But this year’s festival also reminds us of what one man has accomplished in an all-too-short life devoted to cinema in every possible context.

I would have liked to know him longer and better. He was a lot of fun, a great sparring partner on camera; we found ourselves together several times on WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight” and his tastes were incredibly broad and informed. The last time I saw him, just weeks before his death, he shared photos of himself on stage at the TCM Classic Film Festival with Jacqueline Stewart, co-host of the TCM and president of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures . It was, he says, the greatest moment of his career.

What I remember most is the time we shared in the screening rooms. Once we were talking about the Stanley Donen MGM musical “It’s Always Fair Weather” – I believe it was a non-academic discussion of Cyd Charisse’s dance number, “Baby, You Knock Me Out” – and Mims said mentioned Michael Kidd’s solo number that was cut. I hadn’t heard of that. It floats on YouTube, he said. “It’s incredible.” And it was.

I have no idea what movie we saw that day. Statistically it wasn’t likely to be memorable, but I remember speaking with Sergio. May he rest well, and may his spirit soar long in the vicinity of State Street and the Film Center.

We couldn’t put on this beautiful and meaningful event without the help of the Torres-Olivares family who each year make hundreds of sugar skulls, design and build our altar, and help plan the event.We look forward to seeing you for this beautiful and meaningful celebration.
