Welcome To The Wizarding World

With the help of Professor Dumbledore (Richard Harris/Michael Gambon), Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane), Professor Snape (Alan Rickman), Professor McGonagall (Maggie Smith), and his other friends, Harry must overcome all the problems that come with wizard adolescence as well as the approaching wizarding war.

90,000 Harry Potter Butter Beer: Russians Recreate Recipe From Book

Even among very young people there are those who neglect Instagram in favor of reading – and plunge into the phantasmagoric world of Gogol’s stories, race with mythical creatures in the universe of Neil Gaiman, crawl along with Sherlock Holmes among the swamps of Dartmoor …

Moth-eaten school rule – they say, books will teach everything! – really works. In some works, for example, the assembly of a car engine or drawing with a pencil is described so literally that you only need to repeat it.

Someone has already made a business out of this – and organized courses on the knowledge and skills of literary characters.

Fair English

What phrase have everyone over thirty heard from their parents? “Nowhere without English!” But you don’t have to learn the language from boring textbooks – there are more dynamic options. Nobody needs to be told which book is the most popular of this century? There, in the center of the plot, is an orphan boy with a scar on his forehead, who was unexpectedly informed that he is a wizard.And this most famous book is written in English – what is not a gift of fate for those who want to master the language, and for those who earn it by teaching: “English in the world of” Harry Potter “.

Here, for example, one of the sentences – English not from books, but from films. The courses are eight weeks long: reviewing one film – one week of study.

– I have always adored films and books about Harry Potter, watched them in the original and read books. People really like the idea of ​​learning English from films, mostly girls or women of different professions come to me, – said the teacher in an interview with the correspondent of “MK”.- I send the course materials to the messenger, students have access to them around the clock. They watch instructional presentations with quotes and movie clips, learn words from flashcards, work with grammar workbooks, and chat in conversation clubs. The coolest thing is the magical atmosphere.

Most of the students note: yes, teaching and support is great, but is it really so necessary to pay extra for what you can do on your own? Well, let’s check it out! We turn on the first film about the Philosopher’s Stone – in English, of course, with subtitles! – and we begin educational viewing.

The film about Harry, probably, all our generation knows by heart. This saved – at least the meaning is clear. But with scenes with spells it is more difficult! Rowling took the magic words from Latin. It seemed to us that all these “alachomora” and “expecto patronum” were just a fantasy … It turned out that no. They also tightened up Latin for free! It seems that in general terms everything is clear, but there are so many idioms and phraseological units …

So, we are still referring to the teacher’s materials. The film was accompanied by sections with grammar that needed to be studied.Well, with Present Simple everything is already clear – here we have a solid “five”. But when they moved from the first film to the second and beyond, real problems began. It seemed that the enthusiasm for Deathly Hallows would dry up. There were too many new words – I had to remember the school and write them down in a notebook. But it is not critical: at least we finished watching the third film with the thought that our modest knowledge is not limited to the phrase: “London is a capital of Great Britain”. Although without subtitles, perhaps, it would be a little tight…

Edible literature

When reading, for example, a historical novel, have you ever thought: “Damn it, how delicious he described the scene of the feast, I want to see this food on the table!” We go surfing the Internet in search of useful advice – here are the literary cooking courses!

How is it? You can share your personal recipe for making some rich Pomor fish soup called “Young Russia”, but make a whole course out of this? ..

For example, here is a course program based on dishes from famous classics. The first lesson – bone marrow with porcini mushrooms and earth from Borodino bread (“Heart of a Dog”), the second – a side of mutton stuffed with green buckwheat porridge (“Dead Souls”), and for dessert – Guryev porridge, described by Uncle Gilya in the collection stories “Moscow and Muscovites”.

All training can be followed by video tutorials, turning them on even in your own kitchen (without leaving far from the stove). The process is supervised by a real chef – a connoisseur of Russian traditional cuisine in a very solid cap. This means that everything will be serious.

Here, for example, Guryev porridge! The “MK” correspondent does not consider himself a culinary specialist, so let’s follow the instructions … Well, as far as possible and desires. For Guryev porridge, they said to take dried fruits. I don’t like them, so I took fresh apples and strawberries. Well, apparently I won’t be able to do traditional porridge. But it will be tastier.

Boil the porridge in milk, remembering to carefully remove the milk froths – this is the most important thing in cooking. How to cram layers of foam and honey between layers of porridge? The cook succeeded, but I … In short, everything flowed out.Perhaps it was necessary. Maybe they spread everything behind the scenes with tweezers, so it came out so neatly? Miracles of editing? Who knows.

Further nuance – the semolina cannot be immediately mixed with the ingredients, it needs to be infused for another 15 minutes under the lid. Then good advice came from the Internet – not from the authors of the course, but from anonymous well-wishers! – add cream. I decided to obey. Better not. The porridge spread even more. Probably added in the wrong proportion …

The result is sweet and tasty.The chef on the video was also beautiful: he decorated the dish with fruits and spices – and where did the strength come from? Probably experience … Your correspondent was completely exhausted and watched the video, intensively absorbing his “Guryev” porridge.

However, appetite comes with eating, and I decided to improvise the next recipe myself. We recently learned English from the Harry Potter books? Taught! And they learned that Harry and his friends not only conjured a lot, but also ate – either a pie with kidneys, or pumpkin juice, or butter beer … This drink is probably the most famous of the entire Rowling universe.Apparently, this is a kind of warming milkshake with the addition of caramel (even in the wizarding world, schoolchildren would hardly be allowed to drink alcohol!). Fans still don’t know the exact recipe for the drink. Let’s get out intuitively …

1. Take a small bag of caramels.

2. Pour 250 ml of milk and 100 ml of cream into a saucepan (I took fatter, 15–20%). We throw candies there (it is better to cut them in half beforehand) and stir over low heat until they dissolve.

3. Now you need to make the thickener. To do this, break one egg, add a teaspoon of sugar to it and beat for one or two minutes. Pour 200 milliliters of milk into another container. Add melted butter (a teaspoon) and an egg to it. You can also add cinnamon. Personally, I also added ginger, because it tastes pleasantly bitter.

4. It remains to add milk to the resulting mixture. Can be poured into glasses, or add a cap of whipped cream on top for added beauty.

I wanted to achieve maximum similarity with the movie version of beer, so I took yellow caramels. Others can be used, for example with chocolate filling. Beer … but is it beer? More like a hot milkshake … in general, the drink came out flawless. In summer, however, a little out of place, but by the New Year it will be just right – even better than mulled wine. True, the nuance is high in calories … But is it important? Have a nice evening with a warm drink and read good books, watch movies, think, learn!

Turgenevskaya young lady from linen to hats

All girls ‘favorite episodes in all books are detailed descriptions of the heroines’ outfits.Maybe not everyone will remember who, with whom and why he fought in the novel “Gone with the Wind” or what Levin argued about in the novel “Anna Karenina”, but here’s the choice of Scarlett’s dress for the fateful barbecue or Kitty’s statement that she was Anna Arkadyevna presents without fail in purple, girls memorize. Another question: why, in fact, Scarlett’s green muslin dress was a defiant choice for a morning visit? From literary works, you can easily study the history of fashion.

“When you read a book, I really want to imagine the whole heroine, her face, dress, and hat.Films are often frustrating: not that! And it is difficult to invent a historical costume on your own: it is not clear what a türlürlu or esharp is, ”explains fashion historian Asya Aladzhalova, who maintains a thematic blog about fashion in books. For example, Aladzhalova suggests studying fashion trends in 1959 based on Vasily Aksenov’s story-debut “Colleagues”.

“In general, this intonation of surprise from an unprecedented outfit is often heard in the story. Zelenin sees for the first time such a dress, where the bodice is narrow, and the skirt is gathered in folds and expands downward.Vladyka helps a random guest at someone else’s party to put on a “fur coat like no one has ever seen.” Vera – when Alexei sees her – wears “a new coat: a bag narrowed downwards. ” Considering that it was at the end of the 1950s that new Western fashions finally began to make their way to Leningrad and Moscow (on the eve of the Festival of Youth and Students, throughout 1957, even Rabotnitsa printed fashion illustrations on the last page), this surprise is quite understandable. ” – the fashion historian explains in detail.

Aladzhalova also explains why it is not so easy to repeat the outfit of a book heroine even if it is possible to buy a vintage dress somewhere at a flea market – you need to take into account a lot of nuances.

… So the books are not lost in the modern vlogging and blogging world. On the contrary, they have revived, rejuvenated and with renewed vigor perform one of their main tasks – entertaining, educating.

Rowling leaves his longtime literary agent, betting on the Internet

British writer J. K. ends cooperation with her longtime literary agent Christopher Little, with whom she worked for 16 years and whose publishing house published her first novel about Harry Potter.

At one time, Little specially opened a publishing house to publish the novel “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”.

J.K. Rowling said that the decision to end cooperation with her agent was very painful, but it was not made without reason.

A representative for Christopher Little confirmed the termination of his contract, saying that the literary agent was surprised and disappointed by the decision.

“Little has worked with J.K. Rowling for 16 years since the beginning of her writing career,” said a spokesperson for the agent.“He admires Rowling’s talent and is proud of his involvement in her success, but he was disappointed to hear of the writer’s decision.”

“This is my gift to the Harry Potter fans,” Rowling told the BBC when she announced the launch of the site in June. its participants can compete to find prizes hidden in the real world: in Britain, the USA and some other countries.

In addition, visitors to the site will be able, along with the main characters, to complete the entire course of study at Hogwarts, starting with the purchase of magic equipment in Diagon Alley, this magical equivalent of Oxford Street, receiving lifting golden galleons at Gringotts Bank, and even picking up an individual magic wand from 33 thousand options. The personal settings of the magic wand will be selected by the computer based on the data entered by the users.

The site will open in October and for the first time will be able to purchase an electronic version of the Harry Potter novels.

J.K. Rowling has sold over 400 million pieces of “Potteriana” worldwide.

MOSCOW, January 17 – RIA Novosti, Maria Selivanova. Magnets as a souvenir from vacation are a rather commonplace and impractical solution. But fruits from Thailand, designer clothes from Italy and France, or even a ceramic teapot in the form of a Tudor house from England will come in handy.

Cosmetics and fruits “Whatever they buy for gifts in Thailand: spices, carved boxes and panels from teak mahogany, clothes for the house – for example, very comfortable wide “fisherman’s pants”, – says the journalist Viktor Yadukha, who lived there for five years.But the favorite, of course, is the fruit. So, in January – the season of pineapples, passionfruit, tamarind and yellow mango. It is better to take slightly unripe fruits to deliver them whole. Local cosmetics with natural plant extracts, homemade soap made from coconut, turmeric or tamarind are also good souvenirs. Many remedies are also used as medications: against rashes or itching.

More on the Apennine Peninsula buy pesto and balsamic sauces, pasta of all kinds, colors and shapes, cheeses such as Parmigiano Regiano, Grana Padano, Mozzarella, as well as coffee and Limoncello lemon liqueur. “The most delicious is the creamy Crema di Limoncello,” Shamakhova clarifies. In Paris, of course, you need to pay attention to the perfume. But not only. “I always advise you to bring foie gras, good wine, chocolate, a silk scarf or a designer tie from here,” says the guide Irina Bushon. Calvados will delight connoisseurs of strong alcohol, and salty caramels made from cream and butter – those who like to eat.

Magic wands will delight even adults.”Of course, souvenirs with British symbols are popular: double-decker buses, telephone booths, Big Ben. And also, since the British are fans of bath procedures, they bring soap dishes, scrubs, washcloths from here. Tequila and Katrina’s skull “Mexico for tourists is, first of all, sombrero and tequila,” explains the Spanish translator Aigul Ziyatdinova from Kazan, who worked in several Spanish-speaking countries. – And the hat should be huge – only mariachi – performers of national songs wear such. They also buy various sauces – mostly spicy, handmade earthenware, textiles with national embroidery.”Coffee and chocolate are brought from Colombia, from Chile – alpaca wool clothes (a hat with a pompom – chilote, poncho), miniatures and statues of moai – idols – from Easter Island, from Paraguay – things with a national ornament,” Aigul lists. I try to take as a memento something authentic, made by Indian artisans. ” Gift from an Aboriginal “This is an exclusively Australian thing that no one likes to taste. Travelers need it to laugh at the expressions on the faces of the tasters,” says student Angelica Matveenko, who lives in Melbourne. A thick, salty, dark brown paste, vegemite, is made from yeast extract and spread on toast or crackers. Indigenous people offer visitors boomerangs painted with oriental ornaments – a hunter’s weapon. Another exotic gift from the kangaroo country is the didgeridoo. This is a wind musical instrument, a pipe up to one and a half meters long made of eucalyptus. With her help, Australian shamans used to go into a trance. “A good souvenir is funny hats with bells in a circle (Cork hat),” adds Angelica.“In the century before last, these were worn by hired workers on farms to ward off flies from the face – it was enough to just shake your head.” /20191109/1560686492.html

90,000 Zac Efron moved to Australia and met a new love there

The “High School Musical” star and “The Greatest Showman” does not at all comply with the quarantine regime, which still operates in some states in America. And the reason for this is quite simple: Zach himself has been in Australia all this time, a country where the number of people infected with coronavirus is far from so large. The actor found himself in the country of kangaroos, wanting to hide from the annoying paparazzi and loud parties. And now, according to rumors, he even intends to sell his mansion in Los Angeles and move to permanent residence overseas – in the Byron Bay area. In addition, as it became known recently, the actor has another compelling argument in favor of Australia – after all, it was here that he found a new love.

Contrary to Zach’s hopes, the paparazzi still found him on the other side of the globe. They also photographed him holding hands with a girl named Vanessa Valladares. Vanessa appears to be a blogger, but she met Zach at the local General Store where she worked as a waitress.

Zach met Ness this summer. They started spending time together in July and recently went skiing in the mountains. It can be seen from them that they are good with each other.She spends a lot of time at his house,

– an anonymous source told the American publication People. Later, the Daly Mail portal also wrote that soon after meeting Zach, Vanessa quit the cafe and practically moved to the actor.

Zac Efron Vanessa Valladares

Judging by Vanessa’s Instagram, the couple spends all their free time on the beach, enjoying the local climate. And Efron does not intend to return back to Hollywood. However, the actor does not repudiate the continuation of filming – it is just that now he, like his colleague and actor Chris Hemsworth living nearby, will apparently just fly to Los Angeles to conclude lucrative contracts.Previously, Zac Efron dated his High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens. Their romance lasted 5 years, the couple broke up in 2010. From 2014 to 2016, the actor was also in a relationship with the model Sami Miro.

Harry Potter Empire – Muggles Not Allowed | Russian Bazaar

Leisure

Harry Potter continues his triumphant march through the world and the hearts of his fans. In 36 countries of the world, the premieres of the next, sixth “Potterian” series – “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”, directed by British director David Yates, took place. In one day of release on July 15 (Great Britain, France, Germany, USA, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Egypt, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark) the film grossed $ 104 million, surpassing more than twice its own previous record (“Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” – $ 44 million). In total, the first 5 Harry Potter films grossed nearly $ 5 billion around the world.
However, the crazy fees and queues in theaters do not at all speak about the quality of the film production. Fans, eager to meet the wizarding world of Harry Potter (we will continue to limit ourselves to “GP” to save space), counted the days until the next episode was released, annoyed that it was postponed, rushed to the cinemas to be the first to see it, and… were extremely disappointed. I will cite only two responses: “The whole session I sat with the thought, when will the promised action be. So she left the hall empty: without feelings, without emotions from the film. To be honest, I didn’t even understand: what was it ?! ”
“How did they manage to shoot 2. 5 hours about nothing!”
The filming of the series was rather fed up with the performers of the main roles, some of whom, as it turned out, had not even read Rowling’s books, only scripts. It took a long time to persuade Emma Watson, who did not want to play Hermione anymore – they persuaded only by significantly increasing the fee.But nevertheless, “Potteriana” must be and will be completed. The film adaptation of the final, seventh book is planned to be released in two installments. Filming has already begun in February this year and is in full swing. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I will be released on November 17, 2010, and part II on July 15, 2011.
The phenomenon of the “wizarding world of Harry Potter” is striking in itself. J.K. Rowling has bewitched children and adults all over the world with her fascinating black magic. But there were both individuals and entire organizations that tried to combat their spread and influence on children.Entertainer, the largest company that controls a chain of children’s toys stores in the UK, has banned the appearance of products with the image of the SOE on its shelves. Its owner, Gary Grant, calculated that he might lose £ 500,000 in profits, but concerns about the uncontrollable state of the children overpowered considerations of profit.
Representatives of different religions from different countries, including England, expressed strong protest and indignation against Rowling and her books.The Vatican issued an official warning: “The Cult of the GP is a satanic form of modern occultism.” And the secretary general of the Union of Educators and University Professors in England, Peter Smith, expressed concern that “books and films about the GP will lead to the emergence of a new generation, who discovered the world of magic.”
One 30-year-old female fan, having very emotionally described on the Internet her fascination with Rowling’s books, with what frantic impatience she waited for the release of each next and how greedily she then swallowed them, ends her confession with the words: “The story of Harry Potter has been with me for 10 years. And my children will appear in a world where this story already exists. And they won’t have to wait for years, like me. ”
Yes, protests and indignations did not have the strength and success, Harry Potter defeats not only the terrible black magician and villain Voldemort, but also all those who disagree with his birth, winning fantastic, almost mystical victories in the real world. Rowling’s books have been translated into 67 languages ​​and sold in 200 countries with a total circulation of 400 million copies. The 43-year-old writer (in the recent past, a housewife who lived on welfare) has more than 590 million.Euro. In February of this year, French President Nicolas Sarkozy personally awarded J.K. Rowling with France’s highest honor, the Legion of Honor.
In addition to books and films, her characters and their surroundings take on life in a slightly different quality. So, in Chicago, in the Museum of Science and Industry, on April 30, a traveling exhibition with exhibits “Potteriana” was opened. It will last until September 7, after which it will travel to cities and countries.
On an area of ​​10,000 sq. ft. costumes and props from films already shot are presented, and the collection will be replenished.Moreover, the exhibits are not located in the boring space of the exhibition halls, but against the backdrop of movie decorations, which makes the exposition lively and more attractive.
“From the moment you walk down the drafted steps,” says one visitor, “it feels like you’re transforming into a Hogwarts student entering the castle for the first time. Our group of “freshmen” gathered in front of a cheerful man, dressed in magical clothes, who asked if there were any brave souls willing to try on the Sorting Hat.
Here you can see “living portraits”, Harry and Ron’s bedroom – with beds, a canopy and other accessories, thought out and reproduced to the smallest detail – like Ron’s suitcase under his bed with all the things mentioned in the book.
And then one wall of the oval room disappears imperceptibly, and the discouraged visitors find themselves in front of a real “magic express”, letting in pairs, sparkling with colorful lights – the one that transports students to the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, to another dimension.All pavilions of the exhibition are furnished and built in such a way that young visitors, as it were, follow the guide from the office to the office of the Hogwarts school, find themselves in its Great Hall, in the living room of Gryffindor, in the hall of sports hobbies of students of the magic school.
This exhibition seemed to be a rehearsal, a touchstone before a much more grandiose idea – to embody not on the screen, but in reality, Rowling’s fantasies, in all details and details. Warner Bros. Together with Universal Orlando Resort, they began to create a theme park, or rather, an entire magical town “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” on an area of ​​20 acres.Construction, which began last year in Florida, at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure, should be completed no later than next spring or summer. The cost of the project is $ 200 million. “Park” will be based on the content of all 7 books and films filmed on them.
“Over the years, we have received thousands of letters from fans of this tale, wishing to go to Hogwarts and visit other places described in the Rowling books,” says a representative of the Warner Bros. studio, “now, in cooperation with our partners, we can provide fans with this opportunity …”
Joanne Rowling (as consultant) and Stuart Craig, film production designer, are actively involved in the development of the project. Stewart has no doubt that their “Potter World” will eclipse all of America’s amusement parks until now.
“There is already rumor going around the world that construction itself is fantastic,” says Bob Rogers, founder of BRC Imagination Arts, a new attraction design company based in Burbank, CA, with a smile. – I see a sparkle in the eyes of the people working on the project.They believe they are performing miracles. ”
For the sake of curiosity, I ran through the forums and sites of Potter fans and was amazed with what reverent fanaticism they treat every little thing related to him, to each character. They opened their own “owl mail” on the Internet, celebrate the birthdays and deaths of Sirius Black, Remus Lupine, Albus Dumbledore, Severus Snape as the most dear, real people. Hearing that Hogwarts is being played in America, some of them naively ask each other: what will it be – an amusement park or a real school of magic, and whether it will be possible to go there to study.
Those who are now working on the “materialization” of the Potter world are no exception – from the authors of the project, architects, artists, designers to ordinary workers. Everyone involved in the project signed an act of nondisclosure of secrets, so that the press and the masses do not see out ahead of time what gift is being prepared for the “Potterians”. Construction is going on in a fenced area, behind a locked gate, and outsiders are not allowed inside.
However, on the official site Yesterland.com, some details are still reported, questions are asked to site visitors, on which dragon, for example, they would prefer to ride, what they would like to taste in the village of Hogsmeade.On the last question, fans unanimously answer: butter beer.
Of course, the main building of the “park” will be the “ancient” Hogwarts castle, mysteriously and proudly towering on a high mountain. But there are no mountains in Florida, and it is impermissible to move away from the images created by the talented dreamer. And therefore, a giant concrete cube has already been built – the basis of the future steep hill.
Apparently, the creators of the park have a fantasy that works no worse than that of Rowling. There will be no shortage of special effects and all kinds of ingenious devices – from a robot transporter that will transport guests through the air in suspended trailers, stopping and abruptly lowering or raising them in the most unexpected places, to falling thick flakes of snow, flying candles and dishes, talking portraits , ghosts and other mysticism.
The interior decoration and layout of the castle, presumably, will be reproduced with the utmost approximation in all details, with all its offices and classrooms, dining room and bedrooms, corridors and underground passage. As it should be according to the book, next to Hogwarts a completely charming village for sorcerers and wizards will be built in the old English style – Hogsmeade, with all its shops (Ollivander, Zonko), pubs, restaurants – Boar’s Head, Three Brooms ”,“ Sweet Kingdom ”, detailed by Rowling.
The head chef of the Amusement Park in Orlando, Steve Jason, who will apparently be in charge of the “catering” in the village of Hogsmeade, opening the curtain on the mystery surrounding the project as a whole, said: “We specially went to Scotland to see what kind of food we have cook for Harry Potter fans. I think everyone will like it. ” When the chefs asked if they would serve pumpkin juice and butter beer, he laughed and said that they would do their best to make their menu as complete as possible.
According to the project, the magic village should be covered with snow, which will make it fabulous, romantic and mysterious. But the problem is that Potter’s World is materializing in the hot and humid climate of Florida, where no snow has ever been seen. Well, yes, given the current state of the art, this is not a problem either. Universal has already signed a contract with SnowMagic Entertainment Industries, the largest manufacturer of artificial snow. With the help of snow generators, SnowMagic creates not only snow from frozen water, but also snowfalls and spectacular icicles under the roofs of houses.
