Former President Pranab Mukherjee with Prime Minister Narendra Modi

About Pranab Mukherjee, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh once told me that he was like Dhrupad Sangeet. If you don’t understand Dhrupad or if your ears are not trained to listen to Dhrupad, then it will be difficult for you to enjoy the music.

The analogy with Dhrupad gives the impression that Mukherjee, senior Congress leader and former President was a dreary person, who stayed a thousand hands away from so-called modern gadgets, modern lifestyle, late night parties and instead remained engrossed in politics and reading — a person from whom people might have heard, when they went to him, about Congress politics before Indira Gandhi.

It also happened, when someone went to his place, that he would narrate details of the first Congress session and explain how, from there, the party got transformed. So many times listening

Why This Course?

Five years ago, Joe Felter, Pete Newell and I realized that few of our students considered careers in the Department of Defense or Intelligence Community. In response we developed the Hacking for Defense class where students could learn about the nation’s emerging threats and security challenges while working with innovators inside the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community to solve real national security problems. Today there is a national network of 40 colleges and universities teaching Hacking for DefenseWe’ve created a network of entrepreneurial students

“Recipes from a Greek childhood, with modern flourishes”

2019’s MasterChef champion, Irini Tzortzoglou draws on memories of family life and fresh produce in the tiny village of Ano Akria in Crete to share her contemporary take on Greek cuisine in her debut cookbook, Under the Olive Tree (Headline Home, £25).

A former banker, Tzortzoglou – who now lives in Cartmel – charts her rediscovery of the joy of food preparation, and of the hospitality “ingrained in the Greeks” that surrounded her growing up.

The approach

Alongside nostalgia for the Greece of her childhood, Tzortzoglou offers modern, cheffy flourishes (there is a chapter on “fancy gadgets”, like sous vide wands). The opening chapters offer a broad tour of Greek cuisine, from kokkinista (tomato dishes) to pités (pies).

The book is split into two: recipes for “Everyday”, including breakfasts, salads and meat, and for “Entertaining”, including Easter celebrations, Christmas feasting and appetisers, mains and desserts for pull-out-all-the-stops dinner parties –

Historic home gets modern updates | News, Sports, Jobs

This French chateau-style home started out as a Victorian home but has transformed itself once again with modern amenities and inspired interior design. LORENA BENIQUEZ/West Branch Life

With so many architectural jewels on Williamsport’s Grampian Boulevard, it is tough competition to standout — but one French chateau does just that. Located at 235 Grampian Blvd., the historic home recently got an update with new technology and daring design.

“It has a modern floor plan that preserves the historical features,” said Fish Real Estate Agent Denise Reis, who is familiar with the home.

Built in 1898, the home has a storied past with prominent families such as the Plakenhorns and Lundys residing there. “This is a landmark home because when the Plankenhorns bought it, they bought a lot of acreage around it,” said Reis. That land later grew to become the residential community of Grampian Hills.

Originally, the home was a

(Free Webinar) Create A Student Safety Bubble With Modern Bus Technology

Fight illegal passing to save lives.

As schools reopen for in-person classes, it once more becomes apparent that illegal school bus passing is a rampant problem. More than 17 million stop-arm violations occurred in the U.S. over the 2018-2019 school year. Each time a driver passes a school bus with its stop-arm extended, that driver risks hitting a student rider. One violation is too many; millions are unacceptable.

Join leaders from Zonar and BusPatrol as they discuss modern safety and sanitization technology options available to protect student riders – funded entirely by stop-arm violators.
