Indian farmer Pawan Kumar, 52, a fruit and vegetable farmer who hasn't joined the ongoing farmers protests, gestures towards his field in village Samrodha, in the northern Indian state of Haryana, Friday, March 5, 2021. Thousands of demonstrating Indian farmers blocked a massive expressway on the edges of capital New Delhi on Saturday to mark the 100th day of protest against agricultural laws passed last year that they say will devastate their income. But not all farmers are against the laws. Kumar, an ardent Modi supporter, said he was ready to accept the laws. "If they turn out to not benefit us, then we will protest again. We will jam roads, and make that protest even bigger than this. Then more common people, even workers, will join that protest. But if they turn out to be beneficial for us, we will keep them," Kumar said talking about the new laws. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup)

WILDLIFE ON THE MEND Lynn Sciumbato, federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator, carefully cradles an injured bald eagle Tuesday Jan. 12 2021 to move the raptor from a crate to a more spacious outdoor coop. As the eagle heals, it will be moved to a flight cage where it can fly short distances to prepare it for release back into the wild. Arkansas Game and Fish Commission personnel found the injured eagle two weeks ago near Ozark and brought it to Morning Star Wildlife Rehabilitation Center near Gravette, operated by Sciumbato. The eagle has injuries to its back area. Her diagnosis is the eagle got into a fight with another eagle. Sciumbato hopes the eagle can be released in one month. She has been a wildlife rehabilitator for 33 years. Go to nwaonline.com/210113Daily/ to see more photos. (NWA Democrat-Gazette/Flip Putthoff

“A Thousand Ways” is a triptych of encounters between strangers, designed to have the audience members themselves build a series of performances through guided instructions, questions and prompts. “Part One: A Phone Call” facilitates a unique connection between two strangers, who remain anonymous, on two sides of a phone call. “Part Two: An Encounter,” will debut in the summer and sees two participants meeting one-on-one in person, at opposite ends of a table. A simple exercise of working together becomes a profound connection with another person. The dates for “Part Three: An Assembly” have yet to be announced but will be an invitation to gather for one final collective experience. (Illustrations by Cass Sachs-Michaels)
