Indian roller (Coracias benghalensis)

The Indian roller gains its name from its elaborate courtship displays, during which it performs some startling aerobatics culminating in a series of ‘rolling’ motions. The Indian roller is a medium-sized bird which, when perched, appears a fairly drab brown, with a blue crown and lower wing. In flight, however, it is extremely striking, with its deep purple-black wings, bright blue rump, and a blue band across the tail becoming visible (2). Its eyes are greyish-brown and the strong, hook-tipped bill is blackish-brown (3) (4) .

Indian roller biology

This bird feeds primarily on insects, in particular beetles, crickets, and grasshoppers. It also regularly consumes flying insects such as wasps, flies, moths and butterflies (6). Where available, amphibians also form a large part of its diet, although in drier areas this food source is often not available (5). When hunting, the Indian roller typically sits motionless at a high vantage point, from which it can scan the ground for potential prey items. When prey is spotted, it will drop down to snatch it and then return immediately to its perch to consume it. On other occasions the Indian roller feeds directly from the ground, and moves around an area foraging for potential insect prey (6) .

Breeding generally occurs in spring and early summer, and males begin to display as early as February. Courtship displays are highly elaborate, with males flying to great heights and tumbling back down whilst performing a range of aerobatics, calling harshly and beating their wings rapidly to flash their brilliantly coloured wings and tail (5). Eggs are usually laid in April in a hole in a tree or other structure, and are incubated for a period of up to 20 days, with young generally fledging after a period of 35 days. Although groups of Indian rollers are rarely seen, family groups may form, and communicate with a series of loud ‘chack’ calls, which become harsher and more regular during times of threat. When bathing, this species is often seen diving in to water from a great height, a behaviour which was once interpreted as fishing (5) .

Indian roller range

The Indian roller is, as its name suggests, found in India; however, it is also found across much of southern Asia, from China, Vietnam and Malaysia, west to Iraq and Saudi Arabia (2) .

Indian roller threats

As the Indian roller is a fairly widespread bird across Asia and is not known to have any global threats, it is not currently considered to be at risk of extinction (1).

Indian roller conservation

The Indian roller is found in a number of protected areas across its range, including Ba Be National Park and Na Hang Nature Reserve in Vietnam (7). and Rema-Kalenga Wildlife Sanctuary in Bangladesh (8). In addition, it is the state bird of the Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka and Orissa (9) (10). and is also considered sacred by Hindus (4). Both of these facts should mean a high level of awareness of this species amongst the general public in certain areas, something which will be of great benefit if this species requires conservation action in the future.

Exorcism and Demonic Possession

Exorcism (from Late Latin exorcismus —to adjure) is the practice of evicting demons or other evil spiritual entities from a person or place which they are believed to have possessed. The practice is quite ancient and still part of the belief system of many religions. The person performing the exorcism, known as an exorcist, is often a priest, or any individual thought to be graced with special powers or skills. In Christianity, exorcisms are performed in the name of Jesus Christ. A Distinction is made between a formal exorcism, which can only be conducted by a priest during a Baptism or with the permission of a Bishop, and “prayers of deliverance” which can be said by anyone. In general, possessed persons are not regarded as evil in themselves, nor wholly responsible for their actions.

Michael Jordan – s First Deals – Commercials #michael #jordan,nike,blogs,commercials,nba,nba #videos,videos


Michael Jordan s First Deals Commercials

The best day in Chicago Bulls history happened 31 years ago today when they signed their #3 draft pick from the 1983 draft to a deal of the century contract that paid Jordan less than a million dollars a year for his first couple of years of services. Not bad considering the Bulls attendance doubled by the end of Jordan s rookie of the year season and not bad considering they didn t even want to draft him.

After his 5th season, the Bulls re-signed MJ to a 8-year deal worth $25 million, which also qualifies as a deal of a century, although, every deal with MJ in the 80s and early 90s basically was a deal of a century. This included Quaker Oats 10- year $13.5-18 million deal to make MJ the face of their Gatorade drink; It s hard to imagine MJ and Gatorade not being a couple but Coke was actually the first drink to wine and dine him and then they made the mistake of being outbid by the Oatmeal makers.

The only relationship not happening that s harder to imagine than the Mike and his Want to Be Like Mike campaign makers is Mike not being with Nike. MJ s original deal with the shoe makers was worth about half a million a year and that relationship has been so beneficial to both parties that they now pay him over $60 million a year to endorse the brand and wear the Jordan shoes under his extra baggy ripped jeans. It s fun to think about how different things would have been if he got his original dream date and married Adidas instead .

With super agent David Falk by his side, Jordan also signed deals with McDonalds, Chevy ($200k as a rookie), General Mills ($2M in 88), Sara Lee, Wilson, Hanes Underwear ($10M in 89) and Ball Park Franks ($2M in 90). Despite the number of deals he had, Jordan reportedly refused a lot of lucrative offers, including a million dollars for a 1 day appearance in the country of Jordan to promote tourism.

Jordan would finally receive a huge NBA Pay Day in 1996, when he signed a 1-year deal with the Bulls worth $30 million and then a 1-year $33 million deal the following year. It was more than the Bulls wanted to pay, but considering the Knicks were rumored to be offering MJ a deal worth over $20 million, the Bulls had to make their biggest investment ever. Lucky for them, it paid off with back-to-back championships and a few more years with the GOAT.
