Yasmeen Fletcher on Ms. Marvel Episode 2, Nakia https://dadsdayoff.net/yasmeen-fletcher-on-ms-marvel-episode-2-nakia/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 15:00:05 +0000 https://dadsdayoff.net/yasmeen-fletcher-on-ms-marvel-episode-2-nakia/ As Disney+ releases all six episodes of “Ms. Marvel” this summer, POPSUGAR has exclusive interviews with the cast and creators to bring the series to life.

As Disney+ releases all six episodes of “Ms. Marvel” this summer, POPSUGAR has exclusive interviews with the cast and creators to bring the series to life. This week, Yasmeen Fletcher chats with POPSUGAR about episode two, “Crushed.”

Yasmeen Fletcher really loves her “Ms. Marvel” character, Nakia. Before she knew the show was going to happen, a friend told her about the comics, explaining that it was about a Pakistani American Muslim teenager with a culture similar to Fletcher’s. “I immediately went to the comic store and picked up the first comic I could find and read it and fell in love with it,” she told POPSUGAR.

When Fletcher heard rumors about an adaptation of the series, the actor told his manager that she had to be part of it and that she had to play his favorite character, Nakia. “She’s so strong and she’s kind of a badass,” Fletcher says of her character. “She’s not afraid to speak her mind, and she’s so confident in who she is and so loving to her friends and loyal and supportive and fiercely outspoken to the people she loves. [and] his community. »

All of these characteristics of Nakia are on display in the second episode of the series, when she – with the support of her best friend Kamala (Iman Vellani) – decides to run for a seat on the council that runs her mosque. Fletcher likes how quickly Nakia decides to jump in. At first she’s unsure, and then, “She’s like, ‘I’ve got posters printed. I’ve got pimples. We’re doing this with all our might. I’ve got a campaign plan and y’all are involved.’ ‘ said Fletcher.

There’s a very funny moment when Nakia explains her game plan to Kamala and Bruno (Matt Lintz) during the Eid party at the mosque. It’s reminiscent of the scene in many classic high school movies where someone breaks down all the school cliques for the new kid on the block – but here it’s all the mosque cliques. “It kind of looks like Kamala’s AvengerCon plan in a different way, but you can see it in a very Nakia, takeover-type twist,” Fletcher says, referencing the events of the first episode.

Episode two also features a very sweet scene between Nakia and Kamala in the bathroom. Kamala, who has just discovered her powers, struggles to keep them under control while she is at school. She runs to the bathroom in a panic and Nakia follows her. Assuming her friend is on her period, she passes him a tampon above the cabin door. Fletcher loves this moment. “Nakia and Kamala support each other so sincerely and love each other so much,” she says. “She doesn’t know exactly what’s really going on with her in the bathroom stall. . . . ‘Whatever you do, I got you,’ and that’s really the best version of a friendship feminine and the best you could ask for.” Fletcher says the relationship between the two reminds her of her own best friend and that she and Vellani are just as close now after filming the show.

Yasmeen Fletcher as Nakia with Matt Lintz as Bruno and Iman Vellani as Kamala

In the show and the comics, Nakia chooses to wear a hijab. Fletcher doesn’t, but it was really important to her to highlight that aspect of who Nakia and many Muslim women are. “I was really passionate about getting it translated correctly,” she explains. “I was also surrounded by an incredibly talented Muslim creative team who were extremely supportive and also had this dedication and passion for the character and wanted to make sure she was strong and empowered in her hijab.”

She adds, “I was all ears at all times and wanted to learn everything I could because again, this character is so important to me and I know she is so important to so many people.”

“I’ve never heard of co-ed experience on TV because it sounds like a niche topic, but it’s not.”

But one of the major changes made by the creative team concerns Nakia’s ethnicity. In the comics, she’s Turkish-American, but for the show, they decided to make her Lebanese-American and mixed-race, like Fletcher. In the second episode, Nakia delivers a monologue about how choosing to wear a hijab helps her feel empowered and more secure in her Muslim faith and mixed-race identity. She says: “All my life I’ve been either too white for some people or too ethnic for others. And it’s been very uncomfortable, sucks in between people, but I kind of realized that I didn’t really need to prove anything to anyone. Like, when I put this on, I feel like I. Like, I have a purpose.

“It was extremely gratifying [to deliver that monologue]”, says Fletcher. “I’ve never heard of co-ed experience on TV because it sounds like a niche topic, but it’s not. . . . You live in that in-between space, and I think we’re also a little scared to talk about what it’s like growing up in that liminal space.”

Looking ahead, there’s a big test coming in Nakia and Kamala’s relationship: Kamala’s new status as a superhero, which Nakia still doesn’t experience. As Fletcher points out, it’s clear from the first two episodes of “Ms. Marvel” that Nakia isn’t a fan of superheroes. “She thinks the real heroes are the people on the streets making a difference,” she says. “She just doesn’t really like the way the superheroes have handled saving the world because it also causes a bit of destruction.” She adds, “Even though she has grudges against superheroes, she also really, really, really loves her best friend.” It remains to be seen how things will develop.

Fletcher says it’s been a long wait for these episodes to hit the screen. they finished principal photography in May 2021, then did a few reshoots this winter. And the wait didn’t help her worry about viewers’ reactions. “You’d think over that two-year period we’d be like, ‘So I’m ready now,'” she says. “It doesn’t actually happen. It’s a misconception. Once you get here, you’re still not ready for it.”

But whatever happens – a season two, perhaps? – Fletcher is grateful for the friendships she made on set. She says that within three weeks of knowing each other, some actors decided to get matching lightning bolt tattoos. “On the very last day, a relative of mine flew in and tattooed us all in my apartment, and it was the biggest, craziest bonding experience we could have ever had,” she says.

The first two episodes of “Ms. Marvel” are now streaming on Disney+, with new episodes released weekly.

Panna (Madhya Pradesh): We never heard that God himself may have fallen ill, but a strange incident happened in Panna district of Madhya Pradesh. Lord Jagannath Swami of Panna fell ill with heatstroke and as a result the temple doors were closed for the next 15 days.

Expert Manish Mishra said that there is an ancient temple of Lord Jagannath Swami in the district where Lord Jagannath Swami lives with his sister Subhadra and brother Balabhadra. There is a centuries-old tradition of celebrating the Rath Yatra in the district. But before the Rath Yatra, the Lord fell ill with heat stroke. It is believed that Lord Jagannath fell ill while bathing in the sun.

On Tuesday morning, the Lord’s Bath rituals were performed. Lord Jagannath was taken out of the sanctum sanctorum of the temple and bathed in medicinal water while chanting Vedic mantras. As part of the tradition, the Lord fell ill. With this, the historical festival of Rath Yatra also started.

Jagannath Swami temple priest Rakesh Goswami says the tradition of giving medicine by Vaidya is also followed daily until the Lord is healed. During this time, the doors of the temple will remain closed for worshipers.

Devotees also pray for Lord Jagannath Swami’s improved health.

Eastwood never wanted to “quit” life earlier. In a retrospective interview with GQ before he turned 80, he said, “I’m not one of those guys who wants to leave early. But when you leave is when you’re supposed to leave. You know, I take care of myself. The star has remained active even into her 90s. His latest film, Cry Macho – which he directed and acted in, was released in 2021.

One of the things that made the actor take care of himself was tragedy.

Eastwood lost his father at 63 to a fatal heart attack, which he admitted to Closer magazine “hit like a ton of bricks”. After this incident, he focused on good health.

In the GQ interview, the star suggested there was nothing special about his diet, but stressed he was careful about what he ate. He also credited good genetics for helping him avoid weight gain.

“The only thing special about it [the diet] am I just trying to watch saturated fat intake. I was lucky to have a reasonable system that never put on a lot of weight, so I always took advantage of it,” he said.

He has also never been shy about taking alternative approaches to his health, embracing the practice of Transcendental Meditation.

Transcendental meditation is a quiet meditation where you focus on the breath for 10-20 minutes while listening to a mantra sound.

It has been widely used by celebrities such as Ted Danson and Katy Perry.

Of his practice, Eastwood told GQ, “I view entire footage in the morning, before I go. I believe in any personal help you can give yourself, whether you believe in Buddha or otherwise. Before, I was much more agnostic. I’m not really an organized religion person. But I am now much more tolerant of people who are religious because I can see why they have come to this. I can sympathize.

Meditation can help reduce stress levels by creating a state of relaxation. This helps eliminate negative thoughts that invade your mind and could cause stress.

Stress itself is linked to cardiovascular problems. It is known to increase your heart rate and cause high blood pressure.

Why Indo-American Kids Get Rich in the Spelling Bee https://dadsdayoff.net/why-indo-american-kids-get-rich-in-the-spelling-bee/ Thu, 09 Jun 2022 07:30:49 +0000 https://dadsdayoff.net/why-indo-american-kids-get-rich-in-the-spelling-bee/ For some 11 million elementary and middle school children in the United States, it’s an annual rite of passage.

For some 11 million elementary and middle school children in the United States, it’s an annual rite of passage. For about half a million children of Indian descent in America, it’s a mantra – a Sanskrit term for a repeated word or sound to help with concentration in meditation.

First held in 1925, the US National Spelling Championship has become something of an annual event in the country’s sporting calendar, much like the US Open in tennis and golf. There are rising stakes, growing numbers of fans, and wall-to-wall media coverage. Each year, after preliminary rounds in cities and towns across America, some 200 finalists converge in late May on Washington D.C., where for two intense days they compete under the live spotlight as they spell words. often obscure and rarely heard or used. in daily interactions. And invariably in recent years, the winner turns out to be an Indian-American child.

Why kids of Indian descent are so passionate about spelling and so good at it that they’ve won 21 of the last 23 titles (including last week’s 2022 championship) has been the subject of opinion pieces , academic studies, academic articles, books, films, and documentaries. Explanations range from the disciplined double parenting that is the norm in generally stable Asian families, to the emphasis on rote learning, and familiarity and comfort with the English language – the last underscored by the fact that East Asians (Chinese, Koreans, Japanese) rarely make it to the finals despite a similar “tiger” upbringing.

Another underestimated reason: inheritance. Once a country or community has tasted success in a particular field or sport, it attracts a clientele that provides future winners – such as Pakistan in squash for the longest time, China in table tennis, Russia in chess, Cuba in boxing, Hungary in water polo, South Korea in archery, etc.

Shalini Shankar, head of the Asian American Studies program at Northwestern University, who studied the phenomenon for her book Beeline: What Spelling Bees Reveal about the New American Childhood, believes American Indians have taken a step ahead by institutionalizing spelling as a community event, dating back to the 1990s with its own competitions and training methods, paving the way for a generation of winners. According to Shankar, the more exposure Indian spellings got with a winning streak that began in 1999, the more interest it generated in the community, producing more winners.

While parents beam with pride and delight when their children use absurdly difficult/rare/incomprehensible words, there has also been a furious debate about the usefulness of it all – what’s the point of learning words you don’t? will ever use in daily life? Critics have derided the contest as an unnecessary rote learning test and for the kind of pressure it puts on children. One year, a participant passed out on stage due to tension and exhaustion. Advisors are on hand to manage collapses and outages.

But on the whole, it is the schoolchildren themselves who seem to enjoy going through educational hell. For the pleasure of the challenge? Bragging rights? Peer pressure? Who knows? Winning words in recent years include aiguillette (the metal tip of a lace tag), koinonia (a word of Greek origin for brotherhood or joint participation), scherenschnitte (a word of German origin for scissor cuts in paper design) and Laodicea (half-heartedness or apathy, especially when it comes to religion or politics).

The former champions – all of whom seem to have had a brilliant career success – say it has helped them stay disciplined, stay focused and vastly improve their knowledge and outlook. James Maguire, who tracked years of spelling for his book, American Bee: The National Spelling Bee and the Culture of Word Nerds, found winners carried their confidence in their future careers.

Balu Natarajan, who was the first Indian-American to win the title in 1985 and became a sports doctor, said winning the title showed him that you can be an immigrant to America and win a English language contest. Raga Ramachandran, who won the title in 1988, went on to become a professor of pathology at the University of California, San Francisco. And Nupur Lala, whose victory in 1999 launched the cascade of around 20 Indian winners over the next two decades, and who was featured in the documentary film Spellbound, went on to study cognitive science and language processing. . One former winner, 2002 champion Pratyush Buddiga has even become a professional poker player, saying he misses the competitive environment of his spelling days.

The success of Indo-American Children’s Spelling and the outsized coverage it receives obscures the community’s broader success in nearly every walk of life in America. Their ways of winning are seen in a range of school and college competitions. In the future, from medicine and industry to academia, industry and business, American Indians greatly exceed the 1% that they constitute of the American population. Tasting the nectar of success seems to begin in contests like the Bee.

Supporters of Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the 2023 presidency under the auspices of the Disciples of Jagaban (DOJ) have said that if the All Progressive Congress (APC) denies the party’s national leader the presidential ticket, the party will be cursed.

Tinubu supporters said they are not asking that Tinubu be given the APC presidential ticket on a golden platter, but that an equal playing field be allowed for every aspirant to compete in the spirit of a true democracy.

A statement from the DOJ National Coordinator, Abdulhakeem Adegoke Alawuje said: “The All Progressives Congress will surely be cursed if Tinubu is betrayed, twisted and unfairly denied the APC ticket. We need to know that any society where betrayal and injustices run rampant will forever be devoid of God’s blessings and mercy.

“Those of us who are APC members and have supported the Buhari/Tinubu combination since 2014 are not asking that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu receive the APC presidential ticket on a platter of gold, but have fair rules of the game. And if we really claim to practice democracy, let democracy do its work. Let the popular candidate emerge.

“Let there be no imposition or anointed candidate. APC is not owned by President Muhammadu Buhari. He has nothing to lose after completing his term and he must not be allowed to do whatever he wants against the will of the majority. Illegality cannot breed illegality, if governors commit illegality in their small states, why should it be perpetuated at the federal level.

“We should know that the only bond of relationship between human beings and Almighty God is sincerity. Almighty God is pure and He will not support any dirty arrangement. If APC betrays and disappoints Tinubu again, the party will lose the support of Almighty God.

“Let me warn President Buhari that if the gentlemanly but unwritten arrangement on the rotating presidency between North and South fails, it will be difficult to return and maintain love, trust and harmony among Nigerians.

“May I repeat that this inglorious stint of tipping the scales that our President is trying to embark on will send the wrong signals to the new generation and further polarize North and South with mutual distrust.

“It will make them feel like there are no more honorable people who can be trusted with a gentleman’s agreement in Nigeria. Betrayal and kicks in the back will then become the order of the day.

“Therefore, spiritually, the party that perpetuates this will be denied guidance to come up with solutions to Nigeria’s problems. Nigerians must avoid this situation at all costs, and Buhari must not be a frontrunner in this regard.

“Buhari must remember that Tinubu was there for him in 2014/15 when he had nothing to offer delegates in Lagos, and when Abubakar Atiku or Rabiu Kwankwaso would have won. Did Buhari remember how Tinubu supported him in 2019 before he could defeat Atiku’s Dubai agenda!

“May we remind our President how Tinubu and his political warriors liberated the National Assembly government which held him and his administration by the jugular, refusing to pass the budget for about eight months.

“Mr. President remembered how he was freed from the bondage of those in whom he believed very much, in whom he counted and in whom he had so much confidence, at the expense of the sincere members of the party.

“Let no one be mistaken, the few individuals or cabals are in all tribes and religions. We were all together chanting the mantra of change, unfortunately they pushed aside the good guys among them.

“We must realize that this gargantuan betrayal of sincere members of the APC, as revealed earlier by the First Lady, will naturally cause God to withdraw his hand in government; therefore, their security calculations with expectations about the liberation of the economy will fail miserably in their eyes.

“Nigeria should therefore not allow less than 50 members of the cabal to squander the welfare of over two hundred and fifty million individuals on the altar of self-glorification.

“We won’t take it. We will not allow them to bring down the wrath of Allah on all of us. Tinubu should not be unjustly denied”.
