Odisha has put together an encyclopedia of the tribes documenting their centuries-old and unique traditions before they completely disappeared from circulation.

The tribes, according to the 2011 census, make up 22.85% of the total population of Odisha. Odisha is home to India’s third largest tribal population, but they are the most diverse indigenous communities in the country. The state has 62 tribes including 13 particularly vulnerable tribal groups.

Five edited volumes of “Encyclopedia of the Tribes of Odisha” published by the Institute of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Research and Training and the Odisha State Tribal Museum in the museum complex have been published Monday by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

The 3,800-page encyclopedia contains 418 research articles. In addition, articles written by its own research staff, the articles of other scholars and eminent anthropologists on different aspects of tribes and other states have also found their way into the encyclopedia.

“The encyclopedia will certainly be a great treasure and repository for all scholars, researchers, policy makers and those who wish to learn more about tribal communities in the state,” Mr. Patnaik said.

Founded in 1955, SCSTRTI, the country’s first and oldest tribal research institute, has studied various aspects of tribes and published informative research articles continuously in its 61-year-old research journal “ADIVASI”.

“We hope that these five edited volumes will serve as an all-time reference anthropological literature, full of relevant and useful information on various aspects of the life, culture and development of the 62 Scheduled Tribes and 13 PVTG of Odisha At the same time, it will also pay homage to article-contributing anthropologists who are no longer with us,” said AB Ota, Director of SCSTRTI.

“In fact, the centuries-old culture and way of life of these tribal communities is rapidly changing and their cultural identity is disintegrating. Before it disappears completely, systematic documentation needs to be done urgently,” said Professor Ota who, together with his consultant SC Mohanty, had undertaken a painstaking task of editing, compiling and reposting over the past 4 last years.

According to Mr. Mohanty, the volumes on the Odishan tribes are unique in their perspective and presentation since a modest attempt has been made to accumulate and present published and unpublished data regarding their ethnography and development. The authors hope it will be an excellent repository of ethnographic knowledge as well as an excellent exposition of pristine tribal culture with its specificity and variety.

Ash Navabi, a friend who was born in Iran and holds dual Iranian and Canadian citizenship, sent me a gift a few weeks ago. It’s pictured above. This is the Iranian version of my Concise Encyclopedia of Economics.

Here is the story he told me. This summer, he traveled to Mashhad, Iran. It is the second most populous city in Iran, with a population of around 3 million. He came across a small bookstore.

Let Ash say it:

I asked the staff if there was a saving section, and to my surprise they did. Of the approximately 30 books in the section, I noticed 2 by one [here he spells out my name in Farsi]–“David Henderson!”

In short, this is a copy of your concise encyclopedia, translated into Persian. The first page indicates that this is actually the second printing of the book, from 2018, with 500 copies. I bought it at the sale price of 155,000 tomans, which is about 5 dollars.

I told Ash that since 2008 I have sold rights to translate into different languages ​​but, unless my memory is bad, I had not sold rights to translate into Persian. [My records on sale of rights, and this is uncharacteristic of me, are not good.] If I remember correctly, it’s a pirated copy. But I’m not angry. The Iranian economy needs all the good economic thinking it can get.

Famous for building the architectural wonder of the Forbidden City in Beijing in the early 15th century, Emperor Zhu Di (known by his imperial name of Yongle) also ordered the creation of a monument made of ink and paper: a handwritten encyclopedia of all forms of Chinese knowledge, from Confucian philosophy to medicine.

Known as the Yongle Dadian consisting of 11,095 volumes bound in gold silk, the original corpus has been lost over the centuries, and only 420 volumes of manuscript copies made in 1567 still exist today in a handful of museums and libraries around the world .

On September 27, from noon to 1 p.m., the Cornell community and the general public can get a glimpse of the Library of Congress’s efforts to preserve and digitize 41 Yongle Dadian volumes in its collection, at a lecture by its principal conservator Dan Paterson in Room 2B48 of the Carl A. Kroch Library. The presentation is sponsored by Cornell University Library Conservation, and it will also be broadcast live on Zoom.

During his presentation, Paterson will discuss the unique construction of the Yongle Dadian, its preservation challenges, and the benefits of digitization.

Paterson’s talk is part of a two-day workshop on book binding and conservation in East Asia, also sponsored by the library’s conservation department and involving its staff as well as graduate conservation students. books from New York University and the University of Delaware.

“We have this opportunity for our conservators and technicians to be trained by Dan,” said Trina Parks, conservator of rare and distinctive collections at the library. “And it’s a professional service for us to share Cornell resources and educate the next generation of book conservators.”

The conference and workshop will also support the library’s efforts to preserve and make accessible its important collections of Chinese, Japanese and Korean rare books in Asian Collections of the Kroch LibraryParks said.

Highlights from Cornell’s collection include five volumes of the Yongle Dadian housed in the Rare and Manuscript Collections Division.

Three volumes come from Charles W. Wasonclass of 1876, who bequeathed his library to establish the collection on East Asiaand two were donated by Alfred Sao-ke SzeClass of 1901, who later became a Chinese diplomat to the United States, said Liren Zheng, curator of the Charles W. Wason East Asia Collection.

Yongle Dadian volumes are available for on-site playback on demand.

Public conference attendees should follow Cornell health and safety guidelines. Places are limited on the site and Zoom participants must register in advance.

In late August, Russian authorities launched what they described as an alternative to Wikipedia — Runiversalis or “Runi.”

The state-backed website calls itself an “encyclopedia of common sense” and bears many similarities to the popular Wikipedia site, which is written and edited by volunteers in more than 300 languages.

The authors of Runiversalis even claim that they are former editors and administrators of Wikipedia.

The site was launched by Moscow in the midst of the war in Ukraine, when many internet platforms were facing pressure from Kremlin censorship.

The Russian authorities have fined and threatened to silence Wikipedia for posting ‘banned material’ and “fake” war content.

Search engines are now obligated to inform online users in Russia that Wikipedia is breaking the country’s laws, and companies risk penalties for deliberately sharing so-called “fake news” about Russian entities abroad.

Moscow has criminalized the use of the words “invasion” or “war” and instead calls its aggression in Ukraine a “special military operation”.

And Runiversalis’ article on “the special military operation” repeats the Kremlin’s narrative that Russia wants to “denazify” and “demilitarize” Ukraine.

The website also says its authors will only promote “traditional values” on topics including gender and sexuality, raising concerns within the LGBTQ community.

“Editors will not start from what is written in Western scientific journals that have succumbed to pressure from the LGBT lobby,” said a statement from Runiversalis on its Telegram page.

“When you start reading Runiversalis, you notice that it is a platform for Kremlin disinformation and propaganda stories,” said Eto Buziashvili, associate researcher for the Caucasus at the Digital Forensic Research Lab ( DFRLab) from the Atlantic Council in an interview with Euronews.

“Another interesting point is that when you go down to the references, the vast majority of sources are official Kremlin platforms like the Defense Ministry or Kremlin-controlled media,” the researcher said.

In his report, Eto Buziashvili wrote that Runiversalis is not Wikipedia.

“Wikipedia has transparent editing policies and editorial oversight. Runiversalis, on the other hand, is a propaganda website masquerading as a wiki, using Wikipedia’s stylistic trappings to give it a veneer of credibility.”

A recent DFRLab report found that Runiversalis suffered a “rocky start” online.

The website became temporarily unavailable just days after its launch due to a cyberattack.

According to its Telegram page, Runiversalis was restored on September 12 before being the target of another cyberattack, which did not take down the website.

TEHRAN – The Center for the Great Islamic Encyclopedia has published an entry on the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, in a separate book.

Titled “Spring of Knowledge: A Survey of Life Story and Thoughts of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei”, the book is written by Ali-Akbar Velayati, the Leader’s senior adviser.

Containing 208 pages, the book was written in three chapters, the first of which gives a biography of the chief and provides an introduction to his ancestors.

The chief’s scientific and cultural background and his beginnings in political and social life are also examined in this chapter.

The second chapter covers the activities of Ayatollah Khamenei during the first decade after the victory of the Islamic Revolution. His work in the Revolutionary Council and the Islamic Republican Party, and his role as leader of the Friday prayers are also discussed in this section.

The leader’s positions on various issues as a member of the Iranian Parliament, his role as a commander during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq War, his struggles against liberals and former Iranian President Abolhassan Bani-Sadr, and his life as chair are illustrated in this chapter.

The third chapter provides an in-depth insight into the life of Ayatollah Khamenei after he was declared leader of the Islamic Revolution following the death of the revolution’s founder, Imam Khomeini.

The role of the leader in formulating the foreign and domestic policy of the country, as well as in military, defense and legal affairs is studied in this part.

In a preface to the book, Velayati said the writing for the entry on Ayatollah Khamenei was proposed by Seyyed Kazem Musavi Bojnurdi, director of the Center for the Great Islamic Encyclopedia.

Velayati agreed to contribute to the encyclopedia after gaining the chief’s approval.

He went on to say that the entry, which was published in the 21st book of the encyclopedia, was warmly received by the general public.

Subsequently, Musavi Bojnurdi announced the Center for the Great Islamic Encyclopedia’s plan to publish the entry in a separate book and asked Velayati to write a preface to the publication.

On the advice of his colleague, Velayati emphasized in the introduction the need for the velayat-e faqih system of governance in Shi’ism during the absence of Imam Mahdi (as).

Velayati is the author of the 15-volume collection “Ancient and Contemporary History of Iran”.

The latest book in the collection was published in 2017 under the subtitle “Iran during the Leadership of Hazrat Ayatollah Khamenei”.

The National Human Genome Research Institute has awarded genomics expert Brent Graveley and his team $5.6 million to continue working on a massive encyclopedia of human RNA molecules and proteins that bind to it. The grant is awarded jointly to Graveley and Gene Yeo of the University of California, San Diego.

RNA has a moment. Both the virus that causes COVID-19 and the rapidly developed vaccine against the virus are made of it, and the apparent success of this RNA engineering has invigorated research in this area.

RNA is essentially a string of chemical letters, closely related to DNA, which is translated into proteins and can be transported around our cells. The human body makes a lot of RNA for its own needs, and we don’t know what much of it does.

The Chair of the Department of Genetics and Genome Sciences and Professor Brent Graveley of the UConn School of Medicine and his lab have worked tirelessly to fill these gaps. Over the past 10 years, they have classified 563 of the proteins that bind RNA as part of the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) project. The project funded by this new grant is called ENCORE (Encyclopedia of RNA Elements) and will allow them to classify even more, and make it a sort of reference work. Do you have RNA? It’s the proteins that bind to it, and that’s what they could do. Got a protein? These are the RNAs it binds and where they can be found.

Graveley’s and Yeo’s teams test each protein against different RNA extracts. If a specific protein binds only a few hundred RNA snippets and each of them contains the RNA sequence GACGAC, you can infer that the protein likes to bind to that sequence.

“Then you can look at a virus. If you see that same sequence in its viral RNA, you can guess which proteins might bind the RNA and where on the RNA those proteins might bind,” says Graveley. And if you know that, you might be able to design a treatment that stops it from binding and wreaking havoc in the body.

More generally, many researchers have a favorite gene to work on. Now these researchers can go to the ENCORE website and get a list of all the different proteins that could bind to their RNA of interest, and use them to formulate new hypotheses. Already, thousands of research projects have benefited from the database and the 563 proteins that Graveley and Yeo’s groups have already classified. To complete the database, the team only has about 1,500 to sift through.

JERUSALEM—It is relatively heavy, in small print, and reaches nearly 800 pages.

Sadly, this is a recently released book called “The List 2020: Antisemitic Incidents Worldwide”.

From acts of graffiti to violent assaults, the book documents incidents of anti-Semitism from around the world, including the United States, Australia, Bulgaria, Poland, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Italy, in addition to those issued by the United Nations and on the Internet.

The book essentially serves as an encyclopedia of antisemitic incidents around the world alone in 2020, month by month.

“The List” – launched at a recent event celebrating Jewish-Christian relations – was a a joint effort of several organizations and published by Root Source Press, an organization that promotes Jewish-Christian engagement.

Raheli Baratz-Rix, head of the Department for Combating Anti-Semitism and Building Resilience at the World Zionist Organization (WZO), said at last week’s event that the book was “an important step in awareness of anti-Semitism around the world”.

While the WZO compiles and uploads the list each year online, this book is the printed version, translated into English.

The 2020 book follows the release of “The LIST: Persecution of Jews by Christians Through History”, written by Christians – Ray Montgomery and Bob O’Dell – co-founder of Root Source – and also published by Root Source. This book documents 1,000 anti-Semitic incidents over 2,000 years since the advent of Christianity.

Gidon Ariel, executive director of Root Source, said he plans to market the book to libraries around the world.

“Today we are so inundated with information on the internet, but seeing it in a book has an impact,” Ariel told ALL ISRAEL NEWS.

Indeed, the size of the book underscores the high number of anti-Semitic incidents around the world.

“I don’t know who this is going to impact, but Jewish tradition has a saying – even if you saved one life, it’s like you saved the whole world,” Ariel said. “I don’t know whose life I’m saving by showing them this book or who then won’t become anti-Semitic, but certainly to focus on the content, on the subject, to be another worker, an activist in the idea of ​​’Never again.'”

Although it’s not Root Source’s primary work, Ariel said the organization is “proud” to have fallen into it. He recalls, during the introduction to “The 2020 List”, that while the original “List” documented nearly 1,000 anti-Semitic events over 2,000 years, he and the authors of this book realized that there were as many items reported in 2020 only, thus justifying his own book.

“Today, while institutionalized Christian anti-Semitism has diminished, it has not completely disappeared. Anti-Semitic acts perpetrated by Christians as individuals – even if denounced by churches and Christian leaders – still exist and, often, are explicitly explained by their authors with the same reasons provided throughout the companies of ‘accepted’ Christian anti-Semitism,” he wrote.

Yaakov Hagoel, chairman of the WZO and acting chairman of the Jewish Agency, noted in the book’s foreword that classical anti-Semitism has been joined by “modern anti-Semitism.”

“He does not refrain from using any means to distort the facts and instill a narrative of growing hatred towards the Jewish people and towards the State of Israel,” he wrote.

Ariel plans to make it an annual publication. He has already completed the 2021 list and is working on 2023. He hopes to publish both of these books in January in conjunction with International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27.
