“Russian airlines have 515 jets leased overseas worth around $10 billion (NZ$14.8 billion).

“Foreign owners have until March 28 to collect them from Russian companies before the sanctions take effect.

“But, as BBC business correspondent Theo Leggett explains, it’s one thing to fly planes, it’s quite another to operate them for an indefinite period of time.

Headlines: Ukraine sees signs of hope in talks

Hello everybody. I’m Martin Farrer and these are the best stories this morning.

Diplomatic efforts to end the war in Ukraine are intensifying, with talks between the Kyiv government and Russia due to resume today. The talks come after a deadly Russian missile attack on a Ukrainian military base near the Polish border heightened fears of an escalation in the conflict and shelling resumed in Kiev this morning. Although the Biden administration has again rejected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s calls for a NATO-imposed no-fly zone, its negotiators believe there is hope that Russia “starts to talk constructively “. In another diplomatic move today, the United States and China will meet as Beijing could supply arms to Putin’s war machine. Jake Sullivan, the US national security adviser, will meet his Chinese counterpart, Yang Jiechi, in the Italian capital amid reports that Russia has asked China for weapons to bolster its faltering invasion of Ukraine.

The human cost of the war was highlighted yesterday as Ukraine announced that at least 1,300 of its soldiers had been killed so far. The horrors of the conflict were described by Ukrainians who managed to flee west, blaming the Russians for shooting people in the streets as they advanced through towns and villages. Tributes were paid to American journalist Brent Renaud, killed in Ukraine, apparently by Russian fire. The Kremlin has reportedly urged Russian media to use clips of US Fox News host Tucker Carlson in their broadcasts as he criticized the US response to the war.

The United States faces a standoff with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates over their refusal to pump more oil and lower prices to ease pressure on Western economies. Brent is down 3% at $109.37 this morning. A Russian default on its debts after Western sanctions is not “unlikely” but would not trigger a global financial crisis, the head of the International Monetary Fund has said. You can follow all the developments of the day in Ukraine on our live blog and keep up to date with what we know so far.


Refugee Delays – British families trying to help their Ukrainian relatives get to safety in the UK have expressed frustration over continued bureaucratic delays, despite government promises to cut red tape on the family reunification scheme. A woman stuck in Budapest with her elderly parents said it was a ‘humiliating process’. Another refugee problem is brewing as Belarus pushes asylum seekers from the Middle East into Ukraine, according to residents of Belarusian camps. Refugees have found themselves trapped in Belarus after they were promised passage to the EU to cross the border last year.


Covid Alert- Ministers have been accused of ‘turning off the headlights at the first sign of dawn’ after abandoning national Covid monitoring programs, with scientists saying it will almost certainly end up costing more money in the long run. It comes as a growing number of new infections in several countries has led an expert to spark speculation that Europe could be at the start of a sixth wave of Covid infections, partly driven by the ‘stealth’ variant ” BA.2 Omicron. The Chinese government has responded to a sharp rise in coronavirus infections by shutting down Shenzhen, a huge city of 17.5 million people. It has been two years since the coronavirus hit the United States, killing nearly a million people. But given the cost, is the country ready for a new pandemic?


Every dog ​​in his day – The Power of the Dog, Jane Campion’s Western starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a rancher in 1920s Montana, won Best Picture and Best Director at the Baftas in London. Will Smith won Best Actor for King Richard and Best Actress went to Joanna Scanlan for After Love. The Guardian documentary The Black Cop, about a former Metropolitan Police officer who explores his memories of homophobia, racial profiling and racial harassment, won the Bafta for best short film. Climate protesters tried to disrupt the proceedings, but Rebel Wilson ruffled enough feathers with a series of obscene jokes and Shirley Bassey, 85, opened the show singing Diamonds Are Forever to mark 60 years of Bond films. And you can check out the red carpet frills and fluff here.

Inflationary crisis – The UK’s poorest households could see their cost of living soar by up to 10% by autumn if the Russian invasion of Ukraine leads to protracted conflict, the think tank has warned. the Resolution Foundation. Rising food and energy prices could push inflation above 8% in the fall, it warns, hitting poorer families disproportionately. Tenants could see a big rise in rent and bills, with research showing typical costs are set to rise by £1,000 this year.


Light point – The UK’s first solar farm owned by a health board and linked directly to a hospital has exceeded expectations by providing all the electricity needed to run the site on certain days. Bosses had hoped the South West Wales farm would supply Morriston Hospital in Swansea with a fifth of its energy, but it provided enough energy over a 50-hour period to meet 100 per cent of demands for the hospital.

Thomas Tuchel has said he won’t give up until the end of the season after Chelsea put their uncertain situation aside and beat Newcastle United with a brilliant goal from Kai Havertz. Andriy Yarmolenko broke down in tears after putting West Ham on the way to a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa. Chelsea were able to do the right thing in their pursuit of Arsenal in the WSL, thanks to a 92nd-minute goal from talismanic Sam Kerr. Eddie Jones believes England can exploit the pressure against Grand Slam-chasing France at the weekend, insisting his side have already found the winning formula against the Blues. Jones wondered why Ireland weren’t given a yellow card due to England dominating the scrum in his side’s 32-15 loss, but believes the valiant defeat – during which they played 78 minutes with 14 men – could be the fulfillment of their 2023 World Cup campaign.

Tuesday marks the start of Women’s History Month, a time to commemorate and celebrate the vital role of women in American history.

This is the perfect time to learn more about the powerful women who came before us: especially in science.

Now more than ever, we see STEM programs and opportunities for girls in science and math. But it wasn’t always like that. Here is an interesting piece all about the birth of Women’s History Month and why the United States has been celebrating (and making sure women get their due!) since the 1980s.

Below are 21 photos from Getty Images, showing pioneering female scientists over the years. Some of these faces can be recognized and some cannot. What a perfect time to find out more, this month of March.

Music archivists keep the joy of listening to vintage film music alive through clubs and online sessions https://carolchanning.org/music-archivists-keep-the-joy-of-listening-to-vintage-film-music-alive-through-clubs-and-online-sessions/ Sun, 27 Feb 2022 07:15:00 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/music-archivists-keep-the-joy-of-listening-to-vintage-film-music-alive-through-clubs-and-online-sessions/ Earlier this month, as the clock struck 10:30 p.m. on a Monday, members of Nostalgiaana, an online community of vintage film music lovers, listened to a special about Lata Mangeshkar.

Earlier this month, as the clock struck 10:30 p.m. on a Monday, members of Nostalgiaana, an online community of vintage film music lovers, listened to a special about Lata Mangeshkar. A song from a lesser known movie called Naach Ghar (1959) was played, followed by another rarely heard gem ‘Samjhe na baat meri’ from Sa Re Ga Ma Pa (1972). The Zoom-based radio-style show’s chat window began buzzing with messages from listeners who were listening to these songs for the first time.

It was their shared passion for music that brought together Shankar Iyer, Archisman Mozumder (both from Mumbai) and Balaji Ramachandran (Chennai), the founders of Nostalgiaana in their 50s. What started as a chance meeting on long-forgotten Yahoo groups and Orkut communities has now turned into musical sessions on Zoom. “We were extremely passionate and between us we shared songs in Hindi, Marathi, Bengali and Tamil. We started Rewind in 2014 and did our first show ‘The Parsi Connection’ in Mumbai, where we celebrated Parsi musicians such as Kersi Lord, Homi Mullan and Burjor Lord,” says Iyer. Initially, the trio did a few shows in small gatherings, where 50–100 people would gather to listen to old songs and discuss various aspects of film music. Later, their popularity led them to put on shows for banks and Rotary clubs. “When the lockdown was announced in 2020, we went online. We did an hour-long show in April and May on Zoom and the response was encouraging. So we started a paid subscription,” says Iyer. Rewind is now Nostalgiaana, has 250 members who meet three times a week online to listen to lesser-heard works of Hindi film music.

For vintage music collectors, it’s a passion project and they invest a lot of personal resources to keep it going. Take, for example, Kushal Gopalka, a 54-year-old businessman and musicologist based in Mumbai. As a child, Gopalka was surrounded by records, cassettes, audio tapes and music lovers. “In the late 1980s, we had mehfils of music lovers in my house,” says Gopalka, who has a fine collection of 1,50,000 songs on records, cassettes, reels and CDs. Besides his once-a-month music sessions at home, he has done guided listening sessions in public places, such as the Prince of Wales Museum and the Birla Center for Art and Culture, Mumbai. “For a session on percussion, we had the greats Homi Mullan and Kersi Lord who talked about orchestration. Legendary lyricist Naqsh Lyallpuri did a lyric session for us,” he adds.

The members of these clubs cannot thank the organizers enough. Mumbai-based communications professional Kalpana Swamy could get through the tough days of lockdown listening to Nostalgiaana. “My parents had an encyclopedic knowledge of movies and I took that passion from them,” says Swamy, who started attending Rewind-hosted programs in 2017. When the lockdown started in 2020, it was a blessing disguised for Swamy, as she might attend shows sitting at home. “Being part of this group helped me understand the intricacies of a movie song. Those elements we miss in casual listening, like the arrangement of a song for example,” she adds.

The organizers are passionate about the different facets of music. For example, Gopalka spends much of her time digitizing old records and meeting collectors across the country. Once the pandemic broke out, he started hosting Zoom sessions for other music lovers. Kersi Noshir Mistry lives in the United States and joins Gopalka’s online mehfil every Thursday. “I left India in 1977. Songs have the ability to open your subconscious. I can’t listen to an old song without remembering my parents and Bombay where I grew up. Every time I listen to a song, I relive a part of my life,” says Mistry.

In Kolkata, Pawan Agarwal organizes monthly karaoke and listening sessions in a forum called Pawan’s Music Adda. Since January 2012, lovers of vintage film music have found themselves at his place for this adda. “Many of us started learning singing after attending these sessions. One session we held was called ‘Chowringhee se Chowpathy Tak’ on the contribution of Bengali music and artists to the film industry of Bombay,” says Agarwal, 66.

For many, it’s a full-time project. Iyer was a banker but now runs Nostalgiaana full time, along with Ramachandran. “Cinema music is a work of art. A lot of hard work and passion has gone into it over the decades to make movie songs what they are today,” he says. Melophiles couldn’t agree more.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s continued defense of Russia has now made its way into this country with a state-backed television network airing an excerpt from Carlson’s monologue on Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The monologue, in which Carlson, the host of Tucker Carlson tonight, asks why Americans should hate Putin, airing this week on RT, an international television channel controlled and funded by the Russian government. The channel is often considered a major source of Russian propaganda.

Carlson’s monologue aired on RT Wednesday with Russian subtitles. In addition to the cable broadcast, an article about Carlson’s speech was also posted on RT’s website.

“The Washington Democrats told you it was your patriotic duty to hate Vladimir Putin,” Carlson said during his speech. “Anything less than hating Putin is treason… hating Putin has become the central goal of American foreign policy.”

“Very soon, this hatred of Vladimir Putin could drag the United States into a conflict in Eastern Europe,” Carlson continued. “Before that happens, it might be worth asking…why do I hate Putin so much?”

“Has Putin ever called me a racist? Did he threaten to fire me for disagreeing with him?” Carlson asked rhetorically. “Did he send all the middle-class jobs from my town to Russia? Did he fabricate a global pandemic?

“Vladimir Putin didn’t do any of that, so why does permanent Washington hate him so much?” asked Carlson.

“But Joe Biden loves Ukraine, so Putin is bad, war is good,” Carlson said.

After RT broadcast Carlson’s monologue, the speech was picked up by a number of other Russian news services.

Deadline Hollywood reported that another Russian state news agency, Sputnik News, referenced Carlson’s speech in an article on its website titled “Tucker Carlson criticizes Biden for focusing on Putin, Ukraine instead of American domestic problems”.

The article claimed that the economic sanctions imposed by President Joe Biden in retaliation for the Russian invasion would “result in negative consequences for the American people.”

Carlson’s speech reflected earlier sentiments he had expressed regarding Russia and Putin. On Wednesday night, as the invasion of Ukraine began, Carlson called the country “a pure client state of the United States Department of State.”

While a number of other Fox News hosts, including Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity, have also questioned the United States’ role in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin, pushed back against the claim that the violence in Ukraine was President Biden’s fault.

“How we got to this point is a long story, and it predates the Biden administration,” Griffin said during Monday’s episode of Hannity’s eponymous show. “This includes the mistakes made by all American presidents since the Soviet Union collapsed.”

Newsweek contacted Fox News for comment.
