A new storytelling chair commissioned for Twin Towns Community Library will be officially unveiled this Friday with a special celebratory event.The unveiling at the BASE will take place on Friday 17 November at 11am by Cllr Martin Harley, Cathaoirleach of Stranorlar Municipal District followed by an open day full of stories, readings and music.This special ‘storytelling chair’ is based on the book by Stranorlar born author Frances Browne, ‘Granny’s Wonderful chair’ and this chair promises to be the focal point in the new Twin Towns library which is now located in The Base Enterprise Centre in Stranorlar. Frances Browne was a renowned author and poet in the 1800s. She was known as The Blind Poetess of Ulster, after losing her sight at 18 months. She grew up on Upper Main Street Stranorlar, where her father Samuel was the local postmaster.Frances BrowneFrances took an interest in words as a girl while she listened to her siblings reading aloud. She became a talented poet at an early age and went on to become a prolific writer in Ireland, Edinburgh and then London. France’s short stories for children – Granny’s Wonderful Chair – were written in 1856. The seven fairytales follow the adventures of a little girl Snowflower and her magical chair.Cllr Harley believes that the unveiling of this new storytelling chair and open day is a great way to celebrate the new community library in The Base Enterprise Centre in Stranorlar.“This storytelling chair was specially commissioned for the Twin Towns Community Library and is of huge significance for the local community and promises to be an important focal point for the library” says Cllr Harley. The chair was designed and created by Alan Hanafin Design who won the contract after an open call to furniture makers. The chair will be large enough to accommodate two people so that children can snuggle up with their parent or grandparent and enjoy a shared reading experience.Granny’s Wonderful Chair Speaking about the project, Senior Librarian Donna Cavanagh said “Libraries have an important role to play in a child’s early literacy development and part of that role is to provide a vibrant colourful space that engages and inspires children to read. The addition of this storytelling chair will help us provide positive literacy experiences for the children who visit Twin Towns Library.”The chair will be officially unveiled on Friday 17 November at 11am in the Twin Towns Community Library and an ‘Open Day’ will follow when story time, readings from Frances Browne’s book “Granny’s Wonderful chair’ and music will take place throughout the day and refreshments will be available.

Just like in years past, we’ve rounded up the latest camera rumors that have appeared online. While a lot of last year’s camera rumors came to fruition, it seems a few might have been a bit too optimistic. So, keep in mind, there are no guarantees here — only hopes and dreams. Here are the best rumors for cameras we may see released in 2017.Canon Camera RumorsWell, last year turned out to be a bust for the Canon 5D Mark IV, but they did roll out some new Cine cameras and updated a majority of the existing line.

The Alpha series looks like it will get a new flagship camera in the a9 (also called the a7RIII), as well as an update to the the a7. Sony has already announced the FS7 Mark II, and with their increasingly quick new camera turnaround, we could hear about an FS5 Mark II in the coming months.(Some specs are pretty realistic and on par with current models, as manufacturers like Sony, Fujifilm, and Nikon all suffered delays after the 2016 earthquake in Kumamoto.)Sony XDCAM PXS-FS5 Mark IISuper 35-Sized CMOS SensorSony E Mount6K up to 30fps4K up to 60fps1080p up to 240fpsDual XQD Memory Card SlotsSony Alpha a9/a7R III70-80 MP full-frame sensorDual XQD card slotsInternal 4K up to 60fps1080p up to 120fpsISO 102,400Unlimited RAW burst (based on memory card size)Shipping Q4 2017Rumor via The New Camera / Sony Alpha Rumors / Additional SourcesSony Alpha a7 IIIInternal 4K up to 30fps1080p up to 60fpsISO 102,400To be announced Q2 2017Rumor via Sony Alpha RumorsSony Alpha a670024.2MP sensor4K Video up to 30fps1080p up to 60fpsWi-Fi with NFCISO 51200 RED Camera RumorsYou can’t ever really guess what RED is up to. Even when expectations are over the top, the manufacturer tends to exceed them. 2016 saw most RED users getting the ability to shoot up to 8K across the DSMC2 line. Current major directors are using advanced prototypes, like on James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Michael Bay’s commercial and feature work on Transformers: The Last Knight, and David Fincher’s new Mindhunter project for Netflix.Unless you’re an A-list talent (or good friends with one), you probably won’t be getting your hands on any major new RED cameras this year. You can expect to see some more updates to the existing lines.What’s your favorite 2017 camera rumor? Have plans to buy any of these? Let us know in the comments below. Fujifilm Camera RumorsFujifilm hopped into 4K video with the X-T2. There aren’t many rumblings on the next camera with video capabilities, outside of a new color body for the X-T2. (It’s supposedly silver.)Rumor via FujirumorsBlackmagic Camera RumorsBlackmagic is still doing some major overhauls to the URSA Mini firmware.

The government’s priority is to develop them,” Mr. Das said at a meeting here on Friday, an official release said.Mr. Das has asked the Deputy Commissioners of these districts to focus on the most backward blocks and panchayats.

Even four decades after focused intervention for development of 13 Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups in Odisha, the literacy rate among a section of primitive tribes remained below 40%.Responding to a query on PVTGs in the State Assembly recently, ST and SC Development, Minorities and Backward Class Welfare Department Minister Jagannath Saraka said average literacy rate among the population covered by 17 micro projects was 33.38%.The 17 micro projects were initiated in various interior pockets of Odisha during different plan periods for the socioeconomic uplift of the PVTGs on priority basis and to preserve their culture.Mr. Saraka said ₹314.28 crore in total has been received for the development of 82,808 people belonging to PVTGs over a 10-year period between 2009-10 and 2018-19.In case of the Bonda tribe in Malkangiri district and Paudi Bhuyan in Sundargarh district, the literacy rate could not be lifted beyond 20%. Only 14.10% of the 6,676 Bonda tribals in Malkangiri are literate and only 18.03% literacy could be achieved among Paudi Bhuyans in Sundargarh. This, despite the fact that the Bonda Development Agency was set up as far back as 1976-77 and the Paudi Bhuyan Development Agency in Khutagaon in 1978-79.The literacy rate has remained between 20% and 30% in the case of five PVTGs.Gloomy pictureThe economic profile of PVTGS also presents a gloomy picture. The decades-long focused intervention in 541 villages has not been able to pull out people from poverty. Up to 80.95% of PVTG households continue to languish below the poverty line. In case of the Didayi, Dongria Kondh and Paudi Bhuyan, the BPL household percentage has been estimated at above 90%; 97.74% Didayi households are BPL while it is 96.33% in case of Dongria Kondhs.Despite decades-old implementation of the Forest Rights Act, 67.23% Dongria Kondhs, who reside in the Niyamgiri hill ranges of Kalahandi and Rayagada districts, are landless. More than half (56.25%) of Didayi families are also landless.Odisha is home to the most diverse tribal population in the country with 62 Scheduled Tribe communities living in the State. The 13 PVTGs mostly reside inthe hinterland.
