Method of Performing Panchopachr Pj
Applying gandha (Sandalwood paste) & hald (Turmeric) kumkum (Vermillion) to the DeityApply gandha to the Deity with the ring finger of the right hand. Then, offer hald-kumkum at the Deitys feet by taking a pinch of each between the thumb and ring finger of the right hand. First offer hald and then offer kumkum.Offering patr and flowers to the DeityWaving lit dhoop or lit incense-stick in front of the DeityDo not disperse smoke emitting from dhoop with the hands.After waving the dhoop, wave incense-sticks of a specific fragrance in front of the Deity, which attracts the respective Deitys Principle to a greater extent. For example, wave heena (A kind of herb) incense-sticks to Deity Shiva and rose incense-sticks to Shr Lakshm.Waving a lit lamp in front of the DeityA lit lamp should be waved clockwise in front of the Deity thrice, while simultaneously ringing the bell with the left hand.Points to be remembered when lighting a lampDo not use a lit lamp to light another lamp.An oil lamp should not be used to light a gheeChange the wick of the lamp placed in the temple at home daily.Offering Naivdya to a DeityDifferent acts to be performed after completion of the PjSourceâ¢ Related QuestionsWill upgrading my camera body improve my live music photography? duplicateFor lowlight capability, the DXOmark "Sports" index is, while certainly not perfect, a useful tool to compare camera bodies. The Index for the M100, btw, is 1272 ISO.In practice, this index can be very roughly read as "the nearest whole ISO step (1600 here) is the highest you can expect to yield photos that will, at common reproduction sizes, without any drastic postprocessing and with normal camera noise reduction settings, not look obviously and unpleasantly noisy."Higher dynamic range is better, given that stage lighting setups can bring punishing contrasts into play, and that working high-ISO already eats away at your actual dynamic range available.Higher burst speed (fps) is useful to have (and it seems that sometimes, APS-C cameras have the best speed/cost ratio here....).Be careful with the advice of using a super fast lens wide open - this might work as expected with very modern, very expensive lenses, while many older f1.2 or f1.4 lenses will exhibit a very strong "glow" wide open - stage lighting can turn this effect into a nicely scintillating/iridescent style, but also into a mush depending what the lighting setup is.Focusing performance is indeed very lens dependent, heavier/faster lenses might actually be slower here. Some opinions on live music photography recommend manual focus anyway.------Does the proletariat need an organization that is international in scope to compete with the bourgeoisie's?Karl Marx had already made this argument of an international revolution that would eventually take place (although we have yet to see it occur). He regarded the Bourgeois as having the natural inclination to "nestle everywhere, settle everywhere" (The Communist Manifesto). This is tantamount to the Globalization that has forced and squeezed American jobs abroad so that corporations can maximize profit. He believed that it would take an antagonistic force (the Proletariat) with either an equal or greater population size to compete and ultimately end, the wrath of the Bourgeoisie. He regarded the eventual event of Globalization as the following: "No, we are for Free Trade, because by Free Trade all economical laws, with their most astounding contradictions, will act upon a larger scale, upon the territory of the whole earth; and because from the uniting of all these contradictions in a single group, where they will stand face to face, will result the struggle which will itself eventuate in the emancipation of the proletariat." (Marx Engels Collected Works Vol 6) Ever heard of the rallying cry, "Workers of the World, Unite!"? Some say that Marx was altogether wrong. Some say that Marx's analysis of Capitalism was correct, but his extrapolation on the fruition of Communism was incorrect. Other's say that both his analysis of Capitalism and his prognostications were correct: In that respect, Communism is to Economics as to how the Second Coming is to Christianity.------What theatres have a vintage feel and stage lighting?The Drottningholm Royal Court Theater is located just outside of Stockholm, Sweden, and is one of the oldest working theaters in the world using reproductions from the original sets from 1766, the year the theater opened (the original sets have been preserved). Because the hand driven stage machinery is still in working order, complete set changes can be done in a matter of seconds. The lighting for performances has been updated to electricity for safety reasons (as the building is an UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site), but the lighting designs often attempt to recreate the feeling of candlelight illumination that was used for stage lighting 250 years ago. Even the lightbulbs in the theater's candelabras are designed to waver, giving the effect of a live candle flame.The limitation of maximum 40 performances per year to be given in the theater prevents wearing out the delicate facility, and many of these performances are of 17th and 18th century opera, concert repertory, opera recitals, or ballets in period costume, with Baroque instruments played live with the accompanying orchestra, also dressed in Period costumes. Ingmar Bergman's opera film, "The Magic Flute" was filmed in a constructed film studio copy of this theater, as filming on the original stage was deemed too wearing for the building. Here is a link to some of the history of the theater on their website:About the theatre------How to create a map in Photoshop with hills?Mapmakers use embossing to create the effect from a height map. You can use the emboss filter on a image that represent your height field. If you must use photoshop for this then i would use the:Start with a small white brush, with a very low flow on a black canvas then start drawing out the contours of your surface for a circular mountain draw out form the summit, along the lines for dunes etc. You can use blur after a few paths and then add more layers.Image 1: Quickly made 1 stageThen copy this images R (B or G) channel in the layers palette for further referencing.After this apply a gradient map on your image for color variation from height. Merge the layers. For better effect add some noise to this image etc..Image 2: Quickly made 2 stage image mapThen apply the Lighting Effect, use the saved channel as the detail map.Image 3: Quickly made lightning effect. Note i could have used a smaller brush with less flow and blur passes and more levels but you can also paint onto this for better effect.Now you have a passable lightning effect, and cosiderable amount of teaking ability. And finally paint with color on top of this one for tah final artsitic effect you need.Image 3: Quickly made mountain, take your time and build slowly and youll get a better result, im just outlining the method.Tips:.------What are two stages of photosynthesis called?Photosynthesis occurs in two stages. In the first stage, light-dependent reactions or photosynthetic reactions (also called the Light Reactions) capture the energy of light and use it to make high-energy molecules. During the second stage, the light-independent reactions (also called the Calvin-Benson Cycle, and formerly known as the Dark Reactions) use the high-energy molecules to capture and chemically reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) (also called carbon fixation) to make the precursors of carbohydrates, In the light reactions, one molecule of the pigment chlorophyll absorbs one photon and loses one electron. This electron is passed to a modified form of chlorophyll called pheophytin, which passes the electron to a quinone molecule, allowing the start of a flow of electrons down an electron transport chain that leads to the ultimate reduction of NADP to NADPH. In addition, this creates a proton gradient across the chloroplast membrane; its dissipation is used by ATP Synthase for the concomitant synthesis of ATP. The chlorophyll molecule regains the lost electron from a water molecule through a process called photolysis, which releases a dioxygen (O2) molecule. In the Light-independent or dark reactions the enzyme RuBisCO captures CO2 from the atmosphere and in a process that requires the newly formed NADPH, called the Calvin-Benson Cycle, releases three-carbon sugars, which are later combined to form sucrose and starch------How to avoid obvious triangle pattern when shading 2d quads?Answering my own question here, based partly on some hints given in the comments (thanks!), and partly figuring things out on my own...The eventual route I took was to scrap my modifications to the Allegro source, and instead render the lightmap using shaders.As a bit of background: I compute the lightmap for the entire world "offline" in a separate thread.In the render loop, I take just the visible area of the lightmap (plus an extra tile all around) and draw that to an Allegro memory bitmap.I can then provide that bitmap as a sampler to the shader that will draw the tiles.The trick is to realise that you can take the special al_pos vector from the vertex shader, that gives the screen position, transform it according to the offset and scale of the overall tile drawing and pass it through to the fragment shader, to be used as a texture coordinate of the lightmap sampler.Vertex shader:lightmap_offset and lightmap_scale are fed is as uniform vec2s on each frame.Now the fragment shader:This is very simple: just look up into the tile texture, and the lightmap sampler, and combine them.Or to think about it another way: I stretch the lightmap over the entire window (and then some). The scale and offset calculations simply work out exactly how it is positioned------techcrew/ production staff for a school musical?Production assisstant-probably helps with the press releases, programs etc...
