North Carolina, The Hunger Games (2012)The smash hit of this year, The Hunger Games has already generated a great deal of interest in western North Carolina where it was filmed. Even without the peacekeepers, mockingjays and colourful citizens of The Capitol, holidaymakers can follow in Katniss and Peeta’s footsteps and bring the film to life when visiting the places featured in the film.The main site used was the DuPont State Recreational Forest, the location of the outdoor arena in The Hunger Games, in which tributes from each district (one boy and one girl) had to compete in a televised fight to the death. You can even find Katniss’s pond – the location from the fireball sequence in the film.Bali Eat, Pray, Love (2010)The exotic Island of Bali was the last stop for Julia Roberts’s character in the cult hit Eat, Pray, Love, a story following the life of Liz Gilbert – post divorce – in her quest of ‘finding herself’. Amidst the lush green rice paddies, volcanic peaks and tranquil temples, Gilbert found real peace and spirituality through yoga and meditation with her spiritual guide; it’s also, of course, where she fell in love with hunky Felipe (played by Javier Bardem). The film caused a surge in tourism to the island with the province’s tourism agency reporting a huge increase in the number of visitors after the movie was released; especially tourists looking for self-discovery, healing, and an escape from daily life – just like Gilbert was.Hawaii, The Descendants (2012)Set amidst the stunning scenery of Oahu, The Big Island and Kauai – dubbed the ‘garden island’ – The Descendants is a story of heartache in paradise. The film follows the unpredictable journey of an American family at a crossroads, when Matt King (played by George Clooney) loses his wife in a boating accident off Waikiki.Director of photography Phedon Papamichael divided the film between two Hawaii’s: the more hectic, citified Hawaii of Honolulu and the stunning, natural haven of Hanalei Bay on the island of Kauai, draped with verdant, tropical rainforests and surrounded by sapphire seas. The film is already doing wonders for tourism to Hawaii, with Kauai Visitors Bureau (KVB) already expecting a big boost in tourism to the ‘garden island’.

Paris, Midnight in Paris (2011)Anyone who has a penchant for Paris will fall even more in love with the city after watching Woody Allen’s new film – Midnight in Paris. Released in 2011, the film stars Gil (played by Owen Wilson) – a struggling writer who is filled with nostalgia for the Paris of the 1920s, when artists and writers flocked to the City of Lights in a celebrated period of creativity.For Gil, the romance of that bygone era exerts a pull that places him increasingly at odds with his impatient, unimaginative future wife, especially after he begins to have magical experiences that take him back in time each night at midnight. Filming locations included the grand Chateau de Versailles, Monet’s garden in Giverny, Musée Rodin as well as countless cobbled streets, jazz bars and classy hotels. In fact, the whole film is one long love letter to the city.Dartmoor, War Horse (2011)Following phenomenal success as a West-End production, War Horse, written by Devon-based author Michael Morpurgo, hit the big screens in 2011. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film follows the story of a young man named Albert and his remarkable friendship with a horse named Joey. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he comes in contact with, before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.Although set in Devon, most of the filming took place in Dartmoor predominantly around Meavy and Sheepstor and War Horse features beautiful, panoramic vistas of the rolling landscape throughout the film. The setting clearly inspired Steven Spielberg as he was quoted as saying: “I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor”.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map The locations and settings of films can act as a source of travel inspiration, making you want to follow in the footsteps of the characters that you watch on screen.

respect in the race to the Iditarod""She didn’t cheat" answered one of her studentsThroughout the day Kennedy-Budge scatters lessons about respect in her special education classesOther teachers at

keep students in school said Joe Meuwissen the district’s psychologist"We used to be very absolute" he said "It was zero tolerance for certain kinds of behaviors and I think we’ve realized that was overkill"Increasingly students who need to be removed from class for disciplinary reasons are placed in in-school suspension where they’re still expected to keep up with their school work Meuwissen said"It’s a consequence for the behavior but yet they continue to receive direct instruction in whatever the subject matter might be" he said "So they’re not missing instruction"Minnesota’s efforts at

is to see that in Parliamentary elections the Opposition is united and we are likely to achieve that target" Moily said exuding confidence that both the BSP and SP would be constituents of the grand alliance for the Lok Sabha polls Moily a former Karnataka chief minister claimed that votes would get polarised between the Congress and the BJP in Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh Assembly elections Moily said the Congress would win the Rajasthan elections and have an edge over the BJP in Madhya Pradesh "In Chhattisgarh it’s 50:50 There it (the result) depends on our (poll) management.selection of candidates" he said "We are going to win in Mizoram" he asserted Healso claimed that the Congress would bag Telangana in alliance with the TDP CPI and other Opposition parties "Chances are that out of the five states going to polls — Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan Chhattisgarh Mizoram and Telangana — the Congress is going to win at least four" he said On the prime ministerial candidate of the grand alliance he said the issue might not arise because no party in the proposed grouping would insist on that "Ultimately we will have to fight on the issue that we should defeat BJP and communal forces that’s the only issue Leadership. who should become prime minister will be taken up at an appropriate time That should not block the Opposition unity" Moily said Tamil Nadu boasts of being an industry-friendly state with its many centres of industrial activity The state capital Chennai is dubbed as the Detroit of India and a host of new age entrepreneurs Tiruppur is known for its cotton textile success Kanjeepuram for its silks Coimbatore a bustling entrepreneurial city is home to a number of successful small and medium industries Namakkal for its trucking business Sivakasi is known for fireworks Not to forget the international chain of Chennai based Saravana Bhavan ‘pure’ vegetarian restaurants With its high literacy rate a range of good quality educational institutions and a decent health care set up Tamil Nadu has been an attractive destination for small medium and large private investors And that’s despite the costs of setting up a business depending on which of the ruling Dravidian parties were in power at any given time Police personnel tackles agitators in Tuticorin PTI In her final term as Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalitha (also spelled as Jayalalithaa) was particularly keen to attract large private investments to Tamil Nadu The state fourth largest in the country and ranked second in industrialisation in some rankings has been able to maintain a GDP growth of around 8 percent in recent years higher than the national average But over the years the political dispensation in Tamil Nadu has more often than not been unfriendly to labourers Both the main Dravidian parties do have their labour wings yet strikes have been rare unless there were some specific political gains to be had by one or the other Some years back a strike by Hyundai workers was quickly quashed by the ruling party In the latest incident the police now ruthlessly fired on protestors in Thoothukudi a major port and agriculture area dominated by the ruling AIADMK — the only MP and four of the six MLAs from the area belong to the AIADMK While politicians of all hues from the state and the Centre have been vocal in criticising the state government for its action the AIADMK administration has refused to admit any culpability and hasn’t said a word against the police despite the videos circulating showing armed policemen in mufti firing at the protestors Neither has any major industry body state or national openly condemned the killings The Sterlite copper smelting unit is nearly 20 years old and is today one of the country’s largest copper smelting plants Jayalalitha got it going during her earlier regime Subsequently the company got environmental clearance from DMK under Karunanidhi and in 2007 its expansion plans were approved by the Manmohan Singh government In 2009 the Singh government of which the DMK was a part also gave the company the environment clearance In 2013 the Supreme Court ordered the company blamed for gas leakage leading to health issues among the people to pay a fine of Rs 100 crore The current protests were triggered by the company wanting to double the plant’s capacity Neither the protestors nor the company hasproduced any scientific facts to bolster their respective claims And despite the protests going on for quite some time now the government too gave no information on the steps it had taken as demanded by DMK leader MK Stalin The severity of the AIADMK govt response when protestors turned violent is surprising especially given the potential of the actionto be taken advantage of by the TTV Dinakaran faction within the AIADMK whose Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam launched a signature campaign against Sterlite Some media reports have also questioned the bona fides and political motives of little-known organisations like Pudhiya Podhu Udamai Iyakkam and Puratchikarar Ilaignar Munnani who were part of the protests Inevitably accusations have started flying about the RSS role in the firing and counter-accusations about a Congress leader’s connections with Sterlite Unlike elsewhere where protests against environmental degradation from industrial activity have led to thestoppage of operations as happened with the bauxite mining plans in Niyamgiri hills in Odisha rarely have such protests in Tamil Nadu been effective In pre-internet times protests against a multinational in Kodaikanal over thedumping of mercury in open areas and the resultant mercury poisoning of water sources created no major impact though the company shut down its operations there Recent protests however gained some attention due to social and digital media and the presence of NGOs among the protestors The last major people’s agitation was against the Koodankulam nuclear power plant But after the initial enthusiasm of protestors the plant is now up and running peacefully In today’s time neither the government nor the industry can be indifferent to the environment Big industries particularly multinationals cannot afford it either In fact theanti-Vedanta protests were held recently in England and the US too But Vedanta and Sterlite have already become sideshows in Thoothukudy?Unsuspecting weekenders then arrive and when they start to run water, "I’d just like to see some people avert a crisis by not coming up to check on their place.

2015 12:00 am Related News The Narendra Modi government is reportedly working on reorienting the country’s agricultural subsidy architecture to make it WTO-compliant The recasting of agricultural and food-security support is a long-overdue reform But while we need to move away from wasteful consumption and input subsidies that distort incentives and decision-making the quantum of government support for the sector should not come down Given the low growth rate of agriculture and increasing distress because of low crop realisations which are in turn largely due to depressed global prices and production setbacks on account of bad weather we need more money flowing to the farm sector But this should be targeted at increasing productivity — spending on rural roads agricultural R&D irrigation infrastructure warehousing must be increased — and providing insurance while the fertiliser and input subsidy regime as well as the public distribution and procurement system are rethought As pointed out by the Shanta Kumar panel it isn’t worth spending approximately Rs 115000 crore annually on a food security programme with almost 50 per cent leakage and where grain is p urchased from hardly 6 per cent of India’s farmers — procurement only touches the lives of surplus wheat and rice producers in a few states Further delivering food security doesn’t require physically procuring stocking and distributing say rice at the economic cost of Rs 30/ kg and then selling it at Rs 3 A significant part of this rice naturally finds its way into the open market where prices are Rs 25/ kg or higher Instead of the government procuring vast quantities of wheat and rice poor consumers who still consume more than their entitlement of grain would be better off given the subsidy in cash — using Aadhaar-seeded Jan Dhan bank accounts — which they can use to transact in a less-denuded market The government could keep maintaining a strategic stockpile of grain to counter price volatility As far as farm support is concerned we should dismantle the input subsidy regime let farmers take market-linked decisions and move to a per-acre subsidy and insurance system But this would require an overhaul of land records first It is well known that the urea subsidy is fiscally unsustainable both for the government and the industry besides encouraging nutrient usage damaging for soil health In the long run the farmers are the losers While the solutions are well known reform can be painful in the short run The land bill being seen — rightly or wrongly — as anti-farmer has constricted the government’s elbow room Whether it will be able to effect these reforms in a timely manner is anopen question For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by

Under-23 team in their Round-of-16 defeat on Tuesday Iraq were thrashed 5-1 by an extremely powerful Mali outfit in a very one-sided contest that never got going And asked specifically about how his team had struggled to contend with Mali’s tall defenders Chither didn’t hold back about his assessment of his rivals “We knew that Mali had very good players But sometimes it’s unfair especially when it comes to the physicality of the players There is a big difference between the African teams and others They sometimes look like they are the U-23 team and not the U-17 Its quite visible in the way they play the way they shoot and their ability You can’t compare them with the U-17 sides” he said Chither though said that “football was about fair play” and the Iraqis would not be filing any official complaint against the Malians Mali coach Jonas Komla didn’t take too lightly to his counterpart’s allegations citing that there were rules in place to put a check on age-fraud and that “it was always important to accept the result” in football “When it comes to this competition there are certain rules when it comes to age and they are all tested by FIFA So when it comes to the result you have to accept it in the spirit of football” said Komla A FIFA official at the ground meanwhile questioned the Iraqi coach’s strong comments saying if Chither did have a grouse he should have brought it up before the match “He came for the press conference yesterday and didn’t say a word about the Mali players They lose 5-1 and suddenly they all look Under-23 FIFA has strict rules in place

Delhi A thin small-framed man with a gigantic veena “riding on the body” sits on his knees and moves his hands over 24 wooden frets to put forth a winding melodic structure The piece moves in a number of directions while leaning on the resting notes — pancham and gandhar — on regular intervals He shuts his eyes sweat dripping down his face and neck and touches a combination of notes in his trademark beenkari style that surprisingly invokes hope Strange for a raga that is known to be meditative The musician merges everything together into a hypnotic drone and does that one thing which musicians strive to achieve their entire life — make the raga stand in front of you “This is the effect of pure music” says Asad Ali Khan as he puts down the veena in Renuka George’s documentary Asad Ali Khan – A Portrait which was screened at IGNCA on Friday It isn’t hard to see through his soul at this moment — where years of learning merge into minutes of Gaud Sarang George’s documentary is a fascinating peep into the world of Khan whose life was never documented until George decided to tell this legendary musician’s story “I always wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes In Khan sahab’s case his dedication to a difficult art form was moving” says George who was funded by Edward and Benjamin de Rothschild Foundation and the LODH Bank for this film A graduate from London School of Economics George grew up all over the world before spending almost 25 years in France — a country where dhrupad found a lot of attention She met Khan through Dagar Brothers a name synonymous with dhrupad in France Dhrupad is a genre that originated from the Vedas and is either sung or rendered on the rudra veena Mythologically known to have created by Shiva with its complex grammar and aesthetics playing the instrument is a form of worship The narrative of the film opens in Alwar where Khan goes back to his ancestral house and talks of his childhood and learning from his exacting father Sadiq Ali Khan a court musician The film journeys through his years full of learning of a difficult instrument and follows him to Delhi Khan never married and passed away in 2011 exactly a year after George shot the film Neither George nor does her voice appear in the documentary which is what has resulted in the flow of the narrative It is also a way through which George has drawn out a reclusive musician “It is his story I wanted to be as non-intrusive as possible I was looking for him to open up” says the 54-year-old George is now in talks to release the film as a DVD She also wants to work on other projects one of them being a film on TM Krishna but lacks the funds One of the most beautiful scenes from the film is a few minutes post a private concert by Khan in his house

plane that crashed Tuesday in France was at the safest part of flight Yet something went horribly wrong leading to the death of 150 passengers and crew The first clue about what could have happened will be the wreckage itself If the debris field is pretty compact the plane most likely hit the mountains intact If it is scattered the plane probably broke up midair "If you see a wing here and three miles later you see a fuselage one doesn’t have to be an expert to speculate that it didn’t happen on the ground — that something happened before it impacted" says Todd Curtis a former Boeing safety engineer who is now director of the Airsafecom Foundation Germanwings Flight 9525 from Barcelona Spain to Duesseldorf Germany was flown on an Airbus A320 a workhorse of modern aviation similar to the Boeing 737 There are over 3600 of them in operation worldwide according to Airbus which also makes nearly identical versions of the plane: The smaller A318 and A319 and the stretched A321 An additional 2500 of those jets are flying The first clue about what could have happened will be the wreckage itself If the debris field is pretty compact the plane most likely hit the mountains intact If it is scattered the plane probably broke up midair The A320 family has a good safety record with just 014 fatal accidents per million takeoffs according to a Boeing safety analysis This particular jet was delivered to Lufthansa — the parent company of Germanwings — in 1991 and had about 58300 flight hours over 46700 flights It is way too early to know for sure what happened but here are some possibilities RAPID DECOMPRESSION This jet averaged more than 53 flights a day over its 24 years That isn’t unusual for a plane making short trips around Europe but is on the higher end of what is normal Each takeoff and landing cycle and the pressurization and depressurization associated with it adds stress to the skin of the plane Aircraft that fly short frequent routes go through more of these cycles than planes flying long distances In 1988 a 19-year-old Aloha Airlines Boeing 737-200 that had made frequent short hops among the Hawaiian islands lost a large part of its roof Corrosion and metal fatigue were to blame Flight 9525 reportedly descended at 3000 feet per minute from its cruising altitude of 38000 twice the normal speed of a descent If there was some type of rapid decompression — whether from metal fatigue or a bomb — the pilots’ first move would be to get the plane down below 10000 feet where the air is breathable The masks that come down from the overhead bins provide about 10 minutes worth of oxygen So a descent rate of 3000 feet per minute would get the plane down to breathable air just in time Curtis says that initial rate of descent is consistent with what you would see in a decompression situation TECHNICAL ERROR Airbus jets have one of the most sophisticated cockpits However there have been issues in the past with some of the instruments there The 2009 crash of Air France Flight 447 into the Atlantic Ocean started because pilots were getting false air speed indications as the plane flew through a storm Ultimately pilot error led the plane into a stall but the pilots would have never made the mistake if they were getting proper data More recently a Lufthansa A321 — the slightly larger version of the A320 — dropped about 4000 feet in one minute after the autopilot unexpectedly lowered the jet’s nose Following the November incident the European Aviation Safety Agency issued a safety directive warning pilots about the possibility of an error with the angle of attack sensors on the plane Pulling up on the jet’s sidestick — a device similar to a yoke — would not pull the jet out of the dive The safety agency noted the only way to stop it was to turn off two of the three air data reference units in the cockpit These units process the flight speed up or down angle of the nose and the altitude TERRORISM There is no indication that this crash is tied to any criminal act but such actions can’t yet be ruled out PILOT ERROR The pilots might have somehow accidently put the plane into a dive or stall and not been able to recover from it Separately the pilots could have been so focused on getting the plane below 10000 feet that they didn’t realize how close they were to the mountains until it was too late AP Alexa Chung, I
